The infamous year of 2020 and the beginning of 2021 gives us tangible evidence of the reality of death

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Now this past year of the Covid pandemic has probably caused many of us to think more about death than we usually do. Would you not agree?

DJ: Well yes I would. I have to admit that death is certainly something I thought about this year maybe more than previously. We've all had loved ones, friends or colleague who have been sick or even died as a result of Covid-19. Apparently a lot of deaths were attributed to the Coronavirus that may or may not have been the actually cause of death. But Covid does seem to have had a significant impact. But even beyond Covid most of us have had someone we know or know of who has died recently but I don't recall us discussing death too much from a Biblical prospective. 

JD: Now let's get back to the concept of death in the Bible. Remind everybody what exactly is death and what kinds of death does the Bible speak about?

DJ: Well Jimmy I did a search of the New King James version in my Bible software for death and related terms like dead, died, dying, dies and so on and came up with 882 times in the Old Testament and 421 times in the New Testament. All together is over 200 times more than life than related terms are mentioned. Some times death is used metaphorically for example it's used of faith that has no value in James 2. And Abraham and Sarah's inability to have children in Romans 4 is talked of in terms of their bodies being dead. Most often its used of physical death and spiritual death. Physical death is when the body stops functioning and the soul departs which Paul refers to in II Corinthians 5:8 when he says to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. 

Now spiritual death is our separation from the life of God which began when Adam made of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and that's the condition we're all born with, trespasses and sin as we read in Ephesians 2. Now the second death is eternal separation from God and conscious suffering in the lake of fire for unbelievers of all of history. We read about this in Revelation 20 concerning the great white throne judgment. Jimmy our eternal destiny is sealed at death. There are no second chances. As Hebrews 9:27 says it is appointed unto men to die once and after this the judgment. So we all must be prepared to die at any moment.

JD: David James, Bible in hand discussing with us the issue of death.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Dave's Biblical look at death is very thought provoking. Hebrews 9:27 is an absolute man appointed wants to die and then the judgement. A judgement for Christians the judgement seat of Christ and for lost people the great white throne.

An American robot rover has landed on the planet Mars

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: How special a scientific event is this?

DD: Well yes Jimmy that is some current events in the astronomy world. Perseverance it was successful. The challenge is that Mars is about 11 light minutes away. So you can't control it. It's on its own when it lands but it turned out alright. What's special is that this is the latest technology that craft has over 20 cameras on board and we'll take a good look at this near neighbor of ours the planet Mars.

JD: And because of the sophisticated equipment they have on this rover it's going to mean more than any other rover that has basically landed on Mars before is that right?

DD: Well that's true although keep in mind Jimmy that we've sent dozens of probes to Mars. In fact combining with other countries over 50. We've already taken a good look at Mars and studied it somewhat but this will go further. This Perseverance is able to drill into the curst of Mars and eventually return samples and there's a microphone. There's just some new features we haven't had before so we'll learn more about that corner of God's creation.

JD: Don actually what will the scientist be looking for? I understand they believe they may find evidence of life at some time and they mentioned billion of years ago there on Mars. What's wrong with that statement?

DD: Well that's the assumption that life evolves that life begins spontaneously and if that did happen on the Earth then why doesn't it happen elsewhere. And so this search for this life goes on. As we know after a whole lifetime of this space age we don't have a shred of evidence of life anywhere else besides on Earth. They'll continue to look on Mars above the ground and below the grounds surface. So far we're coming up zero. Now if we do find any kind of microbes on Mars I would say that was God's plan but that is doubtful. It looks more and more like we are unique like life is on this planet Earth from pole to pole everywhere and it's very special in the universe. 

JD: Dr. Don DeYoung an astronomer and scientist explaining the scientific event of an American robot rover landing on Mars and the reason for this visit to the red planet. 

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Let me remind you of my conversation with Don about which planet was created to be inhabited. Isaiah 45:18 says God formed Earth to be inhabited by man. Psalm 115:16 says that the Heavens belong to God the Earth to man. Both Heaven and Earth display the glory of God, Psalm 19.

The Jewish holy-day of Purim is key to both Jews and Christians

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Would you rehearse for our listeners this very very important holy day for the Jewish people?

SH: The Bible says in the book of Esther because on Purim the Jewish people are in the synagogue and their reading the book of Esther. It's a celebration Jimmy of the preservation of the Jewish people. The book of Esther, Ahasuerus is celebrating the fact that he's conquered a great portion of the world. He brings out his wife although she declines the invitation to come, Queen Vashti. So a search is made, puts her away looking for another number one wife. Mordecai asked his cousin to participate; they're Jewish. Mordecai get's his cousin to enter the contest and Jimmy she wins the contest. Haman he wants all the people in the kingdom to bow down to him. The Jewish people they will not compromise and bow down to a false god Mordecai certainly one of them. 

In chapter 3 Jimmy and this is why it is so significant prophetically, and I know that is key for you. In chapter 3 verse 8 it said and Haman said to King Ahasuerus there is a certain people. In this context this is Jewish people today these people were not profitable for the king and Haman wanted to wipe them all out. The king signed the documents believe it or not and on a set day the Jewish people were to be slaughter and killed. If not for Queen Esther who saved the day in a wonderful story and was willing to put her own life on the line. "If I perish I perish." She identifies with her people. The king reconsiders. The Jewish people defend themselves. Its a great story. Israel today defends itself. It's a wonderful story of how the Jewish people can defend themselves and will defend themselves. God saves the day. It's interesting though Jimmy God's name isn't even mentioned there. Not one place in the book of Esther is God's name mentioned. But I would argue God was there all the time. 

JD: Steve Herzig with the wonderful Biblical account of Esther and the Jewish holy day of Purim. 

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

As Steve told us the story of the Jews 2,500 years ago under the Persian Empire God though not mentioned in the book of Esther was there all the time. As He will be during the time of Jacob's trouble the Tribulation period when satan and the evil angels try to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. As the case in Esther God will indeed protect His chosen people, the Jewish people.

The first phone call between President Biden and Prime Minister Netanyahu did not discuss much about the Iranian nuclear deal

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I hear that President Biden finally got a hold of Prime Minister Netanyahu on the telephone.

DD: Yes, he was among the top ten. He was the ninth they said world leader that he called. The Prime Minster's office released pictures of him smiling on the phone. He said he had a very good talk with Biden that it went well and that it was friendly and that they both acknowledge their personal ties over the years. They did though say that they discussed the region and Iran without going into any details. 

Later we heard from the Prime Minister's office that Biden did not inform him that the next day he was going to announce he would seek to rejoin the Iran nuclear deal. That was not apparently shared with the Prime Minister. But Thursday morning the White House said they called Jerusalem and informed them that was coming later in the day. So they did have some advance knowledge of that. And the White House on its side said the call went well.

JD: Yes and that conversation was key because I understand this was the first call to any Middle Eastern nation. However, speaking of the situation about the Iranian nuclear deal, I understand Israel may not engage President Biden on his plans to restore that Iranian nuclear deal and the strategy. 

DD: Well Netanyahu's office put out a statement reiterating a total Israeli opposition to that flawed deal as they called it. And again they are again urging that the United States not rejoin it. It's really still not clear Jimmy that the deal will be re-entered by the United States in the end but certainly that is the intention to rejoin it on the White House part and certainly Israel is still very much opposed to that. 

JD: David Dolan explaining the Biden - Netanyahu phone call which did not include much on the Iranian nuclear deal.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The Israeli's are happy that President Biden's first call to any Middle Eastern leader was his phone call to Mr. Prime Minister Netanyahu. America needs to have good relations with the Jewish state of Israel that's because of Biblical principles, Genesis 12:1-3 and the prophetic significance of that region. Prophetically the United States is not mentioned in the end of times scenario. However, America has made many political decisions that are setting the stage for Bible prophecy to fulfill God's perfect will, Revelation 17:17.

The United States Department of Defense is saying there is a real possibility for a nuclear war between America and either China or Russia

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Let's get to the Geo political activities. I'm hearing a report supposedly coming from the Department of Defense here in America says there's a real possibility of a nuclear war between the United States, Russia, and or China. What do you know?

KT: Well Jimmy this was quite an astonishing statement to me from the commander of strategic command that's all of our nuclear weapons forces. Admiral Charles Richard who said in an article that he published just recently that the OD to the Defense Department for the first time since the collapse of the Soviet Union now sees a real possibility of a nuclear war or a conventional war that becomes a nuclear war with either China or Russia. This is a incredible dramatic statement. Our military leaders are not inclined to make statements like this. They are not inclined to make statements that kind of openly presage the potential of war. So I take this very seriously. 

What it's based on that I can see is the dramatic expansion of the nuclear weapons capabilities of both Russia and China. Russia pushing the edges of the start agreement with the United States and having engaged in the past decade in a massive massive overall of their strategic nuclear weapons capabilities. The whole triade, ground base missiles, air launch missiles, sea launch missiles the whole shabang if you wish. At 650 billion dollars on that military modernization that Putin has spent even at a time when Russia has been under sanctions and hard pressed economically. 

JD: Ken Timmerman explaining why the United States Department of Defense believes there is a real possibility of a nuclear war between America and either China and or Russia. 

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The three major super powers are all wanting to be number one militarily in this world. That makes for a viable possibility of a nuclear war breaking out between these super powers. As we look into the prophetic future we only see two of these super powers China and Russia. China, Revelation 16:12 and Russia, Ezekiel 38:2. Remember America is not mentioned in Bible prophecy. The demise of America may be at the hands of either China or Russia. God's plan will be played out.

Political leaders in our world today will be influenced by Almighty God or the Devil

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I have read in the book of Daniel, Daniel chapter 10 where it talks about political leaders who have been influenced by satan and made some decisions that actually went against God's will. I know God can put in the hearts and minds of political leaders to make the right decisions but the devil has access to those minds. Would it not be a very important thing for we as Christians to pray for these leaders in higher authority that they not be influenced by the devil and try to stop the devil in his tracks?

SR: Oh I think that is absolutely true. When I pray as you do when we teach about civil authority the purposes of civil authority is to enact justice which hinges on truth. So you praise those who do well. The government is to do that for those who do that which is according to ultimately God's law and to punish those who break God's law. If your civil law mirrors which our Constitution does Biblical law then everything works together. 

So I pray that those who are in office now and wherever they are that they would understand their purpose before God because they will all give an account to God. How they deal on that purpose that God sanction I pray that they would understand and seek the truth. That they would make their votes and decisions based on truth. If they do then you have justice. If they reject that then you have injustice. So when we pray for truth and pursuing of truth we're praying for God's will and we are praying against the evil one who is the father of lies. The Scripture tells us to pray for those in authority so that we can live a quiet and peaceable life and that's only possible if we base it on the truth and God's word.

JD: Sam Rohrer explaining the battle between God and the devil for the minds of political leaders in this world.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Sam Rohrer a former political leader serving as a State Senator for over 20 years in the Pennsylvania State Senate can report from experience how any politician is influenced by God or satan. The Bible reveals that to be the case as recorded in Daniel 10:13 & 20. The apostle Paul also exhorted us to put on the whole armor of God, Ephesians 6:13 because we will face a battle, that's Ephesians 6:12. Paul also exhorted us to pray for those in higher authority because first of all it's God's will, I Timothy 2:1-4. As we approach the future we must pray.

The International Criminal Court has accused Israel of "war crimes", actually they should have charged the Palestinian terrorists

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Tell me what the charges are and who they may be charging for whatever they think is a criminal activity?

WM: Well Jimmy the authorities of Palestine claim that Israel engages in what could be called war crimes. According to Geneva convention 1949 you can't expel people, you can't kick people out of their homes. The whole slew of Arab propaganda and of course ignoring that if it wasn't for Arab terror it wouldn't be doing anything at all. So this was moved over several years and has become very political. For example, the prosecutor who was in charge actually served as a legal assistant to a dictator in Central Africa. They decided Mr. Benny Gantz is a war criminal if he lands tomorrow in Frankfurt Germany or Paris France he could be arrested.

JD: Now Benny Gantz is the Minister of Defense and so he's the person I guess being charged with what war crime and actually does the ICC have jurisdiction?

WM: Well to answer the second question first its very simple they say Mr. so and so is guilty of a war crime, he ordered the bombing of a school and we find him guilty. Therefore if he lands up in a country that is part of the ICC in Europe for example, that state is compelled to arrest him and turn him over to authorities. But in any case now to just moving into a court room in order to gain favor for the Arabs of Palestine who of course we all know have been the ones responsible to anything we do because they are the ones who have originally firing off the rockets, or shooting, or placing bombs, or tunneling under the border etc. 

JD: Winkie Medad explaining who the ICC should be charging with war crimes.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The ICC, International Criminal Court charging Israel with war crimes is basically an expansion of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This partnership between the ICC and the Palestinian Authority is tangible evidence of how the Palestinian leaders will go to any extreme to attack the Jewish state. It's that continuing conflict between Esau and Jacob dating back some 4,000 years ago to Genesis 25. This conflict will continue until the return of Jesus Christ, that's Obadiah verses 15-18.

The Biden Administration decides to go against God as it relates to the Golan Heights

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Secretary of State Tony Blinken made a statement about the Golan Heights. The Prime Minister did not like the statement so he confirmed that the Golan will remain Israeli forever. That's a key security location for Israel isn't it David?

DD: It is Jimmy and of all the policy changes that the Biden administration is bringing in and most of them just reverting back to where President Obama was. The one that worries them the most is the indication that they do not recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Of course President Trump did that. Israel extended its law over that area in 1981 but it has not been officially recognized by an US administration since then apart from former President Trump. 

Now Biden apparently through Tony Blinken his Secretary of State making clear they're going back to the old policy saying that needs to be negotiated between Israel and Syria and in the mean time we do not consider it Israeli territory. Well their shift towards the Palestinians and their possibilities of talks with Iran over the nuclear program those are all worrisome to Israel. But what they fear most on the ground is a war between Syria and Israel in which the Golan would again be captured. Israel gets about 15% of its fresh water from up there. It's the high ground as you know above the valley below the city of Tiberius and they very much intend to hold onto that forever and not negotiate away with the Syrian regime. The Biden administration, I almost called it the Obama administration, is moving back to that neutral policy. They're very very worried about that and sad to see that.

JD: David Dolan explaining why the Golan Heights is so key to the Jewish state of Israel.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The debate during many Presidential administrations over the Golan Heights has been of great concern to the Israeli government. Under President Trump the United States recognized Israel's sovereign control of that piece of real estate. As David mentioned the Golan Heights is key to Israeli security and the needs they have for water. Recent statements from the Biden administration actually deny God's statement on the Golan. The Old Testament leader Joshua followed God's directive and claimed the Golan Heights for the Jewish people, that's Joshua 20:8 and 21:27. This present day debate about the Golan Heights sets the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

President Joe Biden calls the leader of the Communist nation of Red China to receive instructions for his administration

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Joe Biden was able to get a hold of the Chinese Communist party leader and have a long conversation with him.

KT: Well put Jimmy and this conversation lasted two hours. President Xi Jinping had a lot of instructions to deliver to Joe Biden, a lot of demands. Look this relationship between the United States and China is absolutely central to the next decade of world politics not just to both of our countries but for the rest of the world. China is the rising power. They are set to surpass the US in terms of economic output this year. They are also the rising military power. China is flexing its muscles by influencing the United States government true Joe Biden directly. 

You'll notice that this past week the Biden Administration issued an executive order that essentially removed all of the Trump Administration restrictions on the confusions institutes operating in the United States within our education system especially colleges and universities across the country. These are Chinese government funded institutes and their goal is to promote the Chinese Communist party. That's what I really fear is going on here is Joe Biden potentially cow tailing to Communist China, taking orders from Communist China. Removing the Trump era restrictions on US investments in Chinese military companies for example, the listing of Chinese military PLA controlled companies on the US stock exchange, the removal of restrictions on the institutes these are things the Chinese party desperately wanted from the United States. They desperately wanted Joe Biden to come in and replace Donald Trump and now they have a compliant President. This is just the beginning. 

JD: Ken Timmerman with the details on the phone call between President Biden and the leader of Red China.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Ken's report seems to be telling us that the Biden Administration is ready to give China the upper hand in US - China relations. Politics aside Bible prophecy does reveal that China will be the major nation in the world, the last half of the seven year Tribulation period, that's Revelation 16:12. And China at that time will be in partnership with the antichrist, that's Revelation 16:13-16. US - China relations today setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

President Biden's ambitious LGBTQ agenda makes him the most pro-homosexual President ever

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: One thing that I'm concerned about is the pro-LGBT agenda that Biden is pushing.

DJ: On January 11th before the inauguration the Washington Post ran an article with the title, "Biden's ambitious LGBT agenda poise him to be nations most pro-equality President in history." The article says Joe Biden became a fast friend of the LGBTQ community as Vice President in 2012 by stating his support for same sex marriage even before the President did. In that same year outside an Obama-Biden campaign office in Florida it was Biden's unexpected support for the transgender community that elevated his status from a LGBTQ ally to a champion. 

On the Joebiden.com website on the LGBT page you can find this statement, "this fight is not over, Donald Trump and Mike Pence have given hate against LGBTQ Plus individuals and rolled back critical protections for the LGBTQ Plus community."

JD: What are a few of the arguments that are used by those to try to Biblically defend homosexuality and how do you respond to them?

DJ: There continues to be growing support for the LGBT agenda within evangelicalism especially by those under 35. One is that the Bible doesn't condemn loving relationships between people of the same sex but Jimmy that's not true. The Bible doesn't deal with the why question but consistently condemns homosexual behavior out right in the strongest possible terms in both the Old and the New Testament. The greek term explicitly means man that has sex with a man. I Corinthians 6:9-11 says this, do not deceive either fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites will inherit the kingdom of God.

JD: David James explaining why even the Washington Post headline agrees with Prophecy Today that President Biden is set to be the most LGBTQ President ever.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

For my prophetic prospective on this headline I will simply turn to the Bible for God's prophetic prospective. Genesis 19 God destroys Sodom and Gomorrah for sodomy. Romans 1:28 God turns his back on this type of activity. In a message from Jesus Christ, Luke 17 starting in verse 28 Jesus reveals that at the time of His return to the earth it will be at the times of Lot, homosexuality prevalent in our world.

Pope Francis has called for "human fraternity", all religions under one tent

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: In the newsletter you talked about the Pope putting up his monthly video and the one for January was very very interesting. It was talking about something about he's referring to as human fraternity. Tell us about that video will you please Mike?

MG: Well sure Jimmy the Pope has really pushed the agenda forward for an ecumenical movement that would gather all professing Christians under the power and influence of the papacy but is also gathering all religions in the world together. So what he's done in this video is to state that he is open to the Father of all people. He goes on to say that we are to pray for those in other cultures, other traditions, and other beliefs because we are all brothers and sisters and we must not fight anymore, we must come together in unity. 

So its clear that the Roman Catholic Pope does not understand Scripture because clearly in Scripture we know that not all people in this world are children of God. In fact we know from the Bible that there are two different spiritual fathers. One is the devil and we read in I John 3:10, John writes it is evident who are the children of God and who is the children of the devil, whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God nor is the one who does not loves his brother. And then the Lord Jesus Himself confronted the apostate religious leaders in John 8:44 and he says you are of your father the devil and your will is do your fathers desires. So clearly the Pope either doesn't know the Bible or he choices to ignore the authority of God's word calling everybody brothers and sisters submitting to the same father the devil the father of all people.

JD: Mike Gendron explaining the call by Pope Francis for all religions to come together under one tent.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The new terminology used by Pope Francis human fraternity is simply another way of calling for all religions to come together as one church in the city of Rome. In no way am I referring to the Pope as either the antichrist or the false prophet of Revelation 13. However I am saying that the Popes call for human fraternity is the same scenario found in Revelation 17 for the formation of a one world false religion headquartered in Rome, Bible prophecy that will be fulfilled.

American taxpayers will be funding Palestinian terrorism

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I noticed that President Biden recently restored funding to the Palestinian Authority. Now what does that actually mean? What is America going to be responsible for in the funding of the Palestinian people?

IM: What he said is that they wants to reinstitute humanitarian funding. Now the reason they're saying this is very simple that right now American law prohibits funding the Palestinian Authority. It's called the Taylor Force law and when we the Palestinian Media Watch pointed out that the family of his murderer was being rewarded with monthly payments for life the American Congress was outraged and they past a law prohibiting America to fund the Palestinian Authority until they stop rewarding terrorist which is a very reasonable law. 

What they're probably going to do is pass another law which by passing that law the United States will give humanitarian funding to the Palestinian Authority education funding. Those are two things that if I understand correctly the Secretary of State mentioned the humanitarian issues and education. Now you ask what does that mean. Anyone who funds Palestinian Authority education is funding terror support. The Palestinian Authority school system glorifies terrorist and say about that particular terrorist everyone wants to be like her. Well you're telling children that they want to be like a murderer of 12 children and 27 adults. So this is the education. So if America starts funding Palestinian education again and these are just a couple of examples obviously the whole school system is rotten then they're funding terror promotions. So that is to think very carefully what they want to give money to and none of it should be going to Palestinian education unless they first change the school books and first stop using terrorist as role models for the children.

JD: Itamar Marcus explaining how American tax payers will be funding Palestinian terrorism through the Biden Administration. 

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

With the announcement from President Biden the new administration will begin to fund the Palestinian Authority and American tax payers will start funding Palestinian terrorism. This United States funding will be available to allow the Palestinian armed struggle to continue with a stated goal of wiping Israel off the face of the earth and replacing the Jewish state with a state called Palestine, that's Psalm 83:4 and Malachi chapter 1. President Biden is setting the stage for these prophecies to be fulfilled.

Some of President Biden's new policies may actually risk putting the Middle East on a path to war

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: The new Secretary of State Blinken has said that Iran could be just weeks away from enough nuclear capabilities to have that nuclear weapon of mass destruction. 

KT: Jimmy what Tony Blinken is saying to lawmakers is essentially we must return to the Iran nuclear deal or else Iran will have a nuclear weapon. Because it is either compilations with Iran or war those are the only choices that we have. They're the only two arrows that we have in the quiver of diplomacy with Iran. I don't think that we are at a point where we have a choice of making another bad nuclear deal with Iran or Iran getting a nuclear weapon. I think that's a false choice. 

JD: A number of commentators are saying that President Biden and some of his new policies he's putting in place may actually risk putting the Middle East on a path to war.

KT: Well I think President Biden has been reckless frankly in his first couple of weeks in office. When President Trump took office four years ago the Israeli's had basically been sidelined by the Obama-Biden Administration. They were facing a hostile Iran and a hostile Arab powers around them. Now Israel is at peace with United Arab Emirates, with Bahrain, with Morocco, with Sudan and these are signed peace treaties in addition to what they have with Egypt and with Jordan. This is really tremendous progress but it also shows that he is going to return to the Obama policies. It is safer to be an Ayatollah in Iran building nuclear weapons than a Jew building an apartment in Israel. 

JD: Ken Timmerman discussing with us some of President Biden's policies which may be putting the Middle East on a path to war.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

As any President does when he comes to power he evaluates the policies of the previous Presidential administration so is the case with President Biden. As we look at policy decisions by President Biden in particular on the Middle East some commentators believe that these new Biden policies may be risking a war in the Middle East. President Biden aside Bible prophecy does tell of a war in the Middle East, that's Ezekiel 38, Psalm 83, and Daniel 11. If that is God's plan He will make President Biden make those decisions, that's Revelation 17:17.

Both United States and Israeli political leaders are making political decisions that will hasten the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: United States Senate approved Jerusalem as the capitol of the Jewish state of Israel. That vote was 97 to 3. The 3 who voted against it Senator from Maryland Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders voted against it but this is great news for Israel is it not?

DD: It is Jimmy, ironic in that Bernie Sanders is one of the handful of Jewish Senators voted against it. But yes it shows the overwhelming support for that move. Again it was the Senate and the Congress as a whole in the 90s that first voted to move the Embassy to Jerusalem so that was something that Joe Biden wasn't going to try and change and as I said last week they're actually expanding in building near the new Embassy. 

JD: Elections are upcoming David, we know that in Israel and they're going to be some time I think March 23rd. The polls are indicating that there are some pro third Temple politicians that are becoming law makers. Give us a quick look at the upcoming elections and the fact that these guy's who want the third Temple to be built are becoming law makers. 

DD: Well Jimmy the deadline for filing to run in the election was Thursday and 39 parties made it out onto that list. Among them was a new party that's a combination of two religious and right wing parties that were pulling below the threshold to actually make it into the Knesset. They announced a joint list and that shows they'll have five seats possibly in the new Knesset and that includes three of their members that are openly talking about rebuilding the Temple and supportive of that. So if they do make it into the Parliament as seems likely that will be the largest number of openly pro Temple as it were politicians in the Parliament in modern times.

JD: David Dolan reporting that both American political leaders and Israeli politicians are making decisions that could bring about the next Temple in Jerusalem. 

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Political leaders do make decisions that will fulfill God's plan for the future, that's Revelation 17:17. A rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem is a page out of Bible prophecy that can be found in Matthew 24:15, Daniel 9:27, II Thessalonians 2:4, and Revelation 11:1 & 2. We are today very close to the fulfillment of these prophecies.

President Biden has not made a phone call to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu yet and Biden's Press Secretary said that the President may do so in a couple of weeks

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: He's been calling some of his partners in this world leadership role that they have but I don't know if he has as of yet called Prime Minister Netanyahu. Is that the latest or do you have something later?

DD: I haven't heard that they've actually spoken either Jimmy. But again Netanyahu made statements during the week about his long time friendship with Biden and President Biden has said similar things in the past few months that those ties are strong. So they have promised that if they go back into negotiations with Iran they will include Israel very closely in those talks. We'll just have to wait and see but that phone call I haven't heard it's been made yet.

JD: David I saw a very interesting headline that said Israel needs to understand that Trump is no longer President. That's probably a true statement isn't it?

DD: Well it is and they do understand that. In fact Netanyahu reportedly said privately that he said to some of his aides that this isn't the end of the world and again he reminded them they've worked with Joe Biden in the past. I've mentioned it before the real concern is that he may not last that long in office. He is the oldest US President at 78 and then Kamala Harris would become President. She's an unknown quantity but she certainly far to the left of Biden and is very good friends with the squad, those Congress women who are not very favorable towards Israel to say the least. So that's really their main concern at present.

JD: David Dolan with the latest on the phone call between President Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

You may be saying why is it news that President Biden has not called the Israeli Prime Minister. Well let me take a moment to explain that. The Middle East is a key region of our world. All of Bible prophecy will be played out in this region. The relationship between America and Israel is key to all foreign policy for any Presidential administration. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and that is basically a political prospective. Prophetically Israel is major in God's prophetic scenario for the end times. God has used America over the years and will do so until the United States disappears from the world scene. The President should be aware of that and keep Israel-US relations up to date, that's Revelation 17:17. It's God's plan for the future.

The person of Jesus Christ is the perfect example of why abortion is wrong

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: The 48th anniversary of Roe vs Wade that was the decision by the Supreme Court back in 1973. I did want to deal with the abortion issue. Let's begin that discussion.

DJ: As you mentioned January 22 was the 48th anniversary of Roe vs Wade. In light of the resent change in administration I think we need to keep and eye on this in the coming months and years. Back in 1984 on January 13th President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating January 22 as the national sanctity of human life day. In 2019 17 states enacted some sort of abortion restriction legislation. However on Thursday President Biden signed a memorandum to reverse the ban on US government funding for foreign non profits to preform or promote abortions. That memorandum also directs HHS to immediately consider resending the Trump administration rule that would block healthcare providers in the title ten family planning program for referring patients for abortions. You know before the election Franklin Graham said that Biden and Harris represented the most pro abortion ticket in history.

JD: David I wanted to get to the question of personhood because this is really the bottomline.

DJ: Well that's right. In his opinion back Roe vs Wade Justice Blackman wrote this the judiciary at this point in the development of mans knowledge is not in position to speculate. The born alive infants protection act of 2002 insures that the legal concepts of person, baby, infant and child include those who were born alive though miscarriage or abortion. In 2004 President Bush signed the Unborn Victims of Violence Act and that extends personhood to anyone who is targeted or killed as an unborn baby and that is consistent with Exodus 21 which makes someone guilty of murder if they cause a miscarriage. And you know God took on human flesh at the moment Mary was overshadowed by the Holy Spirit. In Luke 2 Elizabeth says that she felt her baby leap in her womb and the word that is used of her unborn child is the same word used of Jesus after He is born.

JD: David James explaining why the person of Jesus Christ is the main reason for not allowing abortion today.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Jeremiah the ancient Jewish prophet is another Biblical personality that refutes abortion. God told Jeremiah that life does not begin at birth nor at conception but actually in the mind of God, that's Jeremiah 1:5.

Global warming and climate change are real and are happening in our world today; however, it is not the end of the world

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: May I ask you the bottom line question is either of these global warming or climate change taking place today?

DD: Well it does appear Jimmy that we are on the front end of a slight warming of the earth's surface. We do have a couple of decades now of this kind of data. But the thing is the world's climate is always making adjustments, some decades a little warmer and some decades a little cooler. There are a lot of variables involved and the changes are always going on. 

We do know also that in the post flood centuries there was an ice age on the earth and the temperature dropped lets say a half dozen degrees and the earth was cooler. Today again the temperature seems to be warming up just a degree or so. In fact Jimmy this is what is so amazing, when you have this kind of population on the earth there's an amazing stability of the earth's climate the temperature only changes by a degree or two. It just shows that when God set up this world He built in stability anticipating the world's population. It's just surprising how constant the temperature is over the world.

JD: People keep making the statement that we're heading towards a catastrophic event. Is that a possibility?   

DD: Well no it's not. You know Scripture gives us the promise the seasons will follow during this whole age that we live in. Certainly man kind though we're not neutral we do add to the system but there are so many variables. The sun can either cause a warming or a cooling, so can the oceans. Multiple factors going on but again the integrity of the climate is that this earth system will continue, to study the earth, to manage it. And then that way we don't trash the place. We don't ignore even changing climate. We do what we can but not to go overboard. It's not the end of the world.

JD: Dr. Don DeYoung with his thoughts on global warming and climate change.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Dr. DeYoung, a scientist does believe that global warming and climate change are happening in our world today although its almost unnoticeable. God's word in Genesis 8:22 tells us that God is in charge. The seasons, heat, cold and even night and day will not cease. Remember God is in control.
