A major "mega church" has ordained women to serve as Pastors in that church

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: David it seems to me this is going to be the growing issue as time goes by. Remind us what are some of the main arguments used to say that women should be Pastors and elders and then how would you respond to them in general?

DJ: Well first of all Jimmy this isn't about women being inherently inferior to men or less qualified or less gifted in any way. In fact I know women who are better preachers with better leadership and people skills and who are smarter and know the Bible better than many men I've heard from pulpits or who lead mega churches or reach millions by tv each week but that's not the point. 

One argument for women is pastors and leaders is often the example of strong women leaders in the Old Testaments. According to Jewish tradition there were seven prophetess that of course God raised that Debra as a judge. However there were gender specific roles in the Old Testament. Prophets, priests, kings, and judges were intended by God to be primarily gender specific with only a few exceptions not as a general order of business. So they were exceptions not rules. 

Another argument is that women were the first to be eyewitnesses of the Resurrection and were foundational to spreading the gospel message. And yet it was Peter and John who assembled the disciple in Galilee to meet the Resurrected Jesus. And as much is made of the many women who Paul mentions in his letters. They did have significant roles specifically Priscilla's role along with Aquila and discipling Appuals yet that doesn't place her in a public role of teaching and having leadership in the local church. Another argument is that there is no male or female but that's about salvation not service. And then finally in II Timothy 2 the context is about raising up spiritual leadership to combat false teachers in the church. So Paul goes back to the order of creation and the nature of the fall as the historical and theological basis for his instruction for women to not teach or exercise authority over men and this transcends both history and culture.

JD: David James with the information on a mega church ordaining women to be pastors in that mega church.

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

David's response to those who use the Bible however, wrongly to back up their opinion of ordaining women as pastors is a key point in this discussion. It is not opinion but God's absolute instruction in the Bible that are the pathway forward especially in these the end times. Paul wrote in I Timothy chapter 3 the requirements for ordination.

There is a lot of noise coming out of the United States Congress that is anti-Israel

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: A lot of noise coming out of the United States Congress as it focuses on what's happening in Israel. The Israeli-Hamas-Temple Mount conflict that's happening right now. It's not good is it to hear the squad continually attacking the Jewish State?

SR: Jimmy no it's not a good thing. I think that this group, the squad we would call them is actually moving the democrat majority in the House now into a position that in the past was somewhat bipartisan in support of Israel you're seeing some radical movement of the entire democrat majority into a support of Hamas and oppose to Israel. This is a very serious matter. 

I think there's been an advantage for a long time in that the supporters of Israel have been able to pull together a coalition of both democrats and republicans. That cross isle coalition has been very very important when it comes to Israel the support of military equipment for instance to Israel or funding. That coalition has existed for a long time. I think what you see right now is a breaking a severing of that coalition and with that I believe you are now going to be seeing a increasingly hostile position by the US Congress. Of course our President is clearly on the side of Hamas and the Palestinians anyways and Iran. 

I am fearful of a very significant policy shift from the stand point of the United States Congress as it relates to Israel. I think what we are witnessing right now is perhaps an historic shift. Something is underway in the Middle East. I think this escalation is not backing off. I think the President request or order or urging Netanyahu to deescalate and Netanyahu response to him was that he appreciates the input but he's going to go ahead and defend the people of Israel. This is being tied into right now potential for armed shipments to Israel. I don't know if they get the support out of Congress now. So I think we are in very eventful days.

JD: Sam Rohrer explaining that the United States Congress at least some of its members are becoming very anti-Israel.

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

A number of members of the United States Congress have become outspoken in their attacks on the Jewish State of Israel. History tells us that nations which turn against the Jewish State will answer to God. That could mean the demise of America and the reason that the United States is not mentioned in Bible prophecy.

Iran's support for Hamas is the pathway to destroy America

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Ken we've watched everything happening there in Israel for the last 11 or 12 days. It looks like a cease fire may be in place but the Iranians are speaking out and especially the chief of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Core talking about they vow to support Hamas against Israel. 

KT: Jimmy the Iranians have taken the masks off and are now openly telling us about their support for Hamas. They're telling us that Hamas is doing their biding in Gaza. They called this battle here that Hamas the missile strikes from Hamas to Israel and it's Iran's fight with Israel. They've opened up a new era, a new front in the conflict with the Zionist enemy. 

JD: And Iran however is making the statement that whenever they want to go and strangle America all they have to do is tighten up their grip around the neck of Israel. The Zionist regime, boy it helps us to focus on really Iran's desire to wipe out the Jewish state doesn't it?

KT: Well it does and it also should focus us on Iran's desire to destroy America. So they see Israel and the United States as one entity. This is something that is perhaps hard for Americans to understand. I wrote a whole book about this after 911. It's called "Preachers of Hate: Islam and the War on America". It essentially looks at Muslim anti-Semitism which by the way is out with its ugly dirty face all over US streets this past week with Muslim attacks on Jews. You hear these people on the left who are talking about hate crimes well these are real hate crimes being carried out by Muslims against Jews on US streets and they're saying nothing. That is yet another reason I believe that should cement our dedication to supporting the Jewish state.

JD: Ken Timmerman with the details on Iran's plan to use Israel to get to America.

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

Ken's report gives us insight into how Iran plans to destroy the little satan, Israel, and then use that attack to get to the big satan, America. This Iranian destruction of America may well be the reason that the United States of America is not mentioned in Bible prophecy. However Iran and Israel are both in the prophetic scenario from the word of God. The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel explained how Iran will be destroyed when they attack Israel, that's Ezekiel 39:1-6.

President Biden's demand for a cease fire may have put Israel in danger

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I understand Winkie that from the White House President Biden actually in a conversation with Prime Minister Netanyahu demanded that deescalation take place of the war in the Gaza Strip and go to a cease fire. Is that pretty much on target?

WM: Well I don't know exactly about the tone or the language. I wasn't tribute to that conversation. On the other hand I must point out that the United States gave Israel to a certain extent over a week. The point is though that the United States should be promoting the security of those people under attack and not when we defend ourselves to stop our ability. We here in Israel due to of course the media being broadcast over the website and the internet we see all sorts of commentators from comedians to fairly serious people saying oh you're defending yourself with an iron dome and you're basically 99% affected, you shouldn't be striking back at Hamas. Well someone has to stop Hamas. Someone's got to put an end to the missile firing. 

These comedians on television or other people including Jimmy representatives in the United States Congress like Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib for example, or even what we call AOC there in New York asking for an end to Israel's being armed by America the arms sales. This is not doing anybody any help because if it doesn't have precision bombs we're going to be doing a lot more damage in Gaza and actually hurting the Gazan's more than anybody else. Instead of working against Hamas when there's no violence, telling them to disarm, telling them to stop their ideological propaganda that to ignore and all of a sudden it blows up in our faces and Israel seems to get the brunt of the criticism. 

JD: Winkie Medad explaining how President Biden's demand for Israel to go to a cease fire with Hamas is putting Israel and Jews around the world in danger.

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

Political decisions do have consequences especially when the United States makes a decision that effects the Jewish state of Israel, that's Revelation 17:17. Taking a weak stand against an Islamic terror organization like Hamas as it relates to Israel puts the Jewish state and Jews around the world in harms way, that's Obadiah verses 15 & 16. 

May 24, 2021

The ceasefire between Israel and Hamas is in place, but for how long?

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Can you give us an update on the ceasefire? Why did it come about and do you think it will last?

DD: Well Jimmy as of right now it looks like it is holding in terms of rocket fire and that and that was after over 4,000 Palestinian rockets had been fired. The Israeli's believed they had won a victory in what they were calling operation guarding of the walls. What wall are they talking about? Well this started in Jerusalem of course where Jimmy on Friday there was rioting again. 11 days of fighting. Jimmy the initial assessments in Israel were that the victory Israel claimed was quite good that they had done a substantial amount of damage to Hamas. The Hamas people were saying the opposite that they did great damage to Israel and shocked them. They were celebrating on Friday in all sorts of Palestinian towns and cities. 

But on Friday the Newspaper published an interview with senior Israeli army commanders who said their second assessment was that they didn't do as much damage as they had hoped they would. They did get dozens of miles of underground tunnels destroyed but the rockets themselves are mostly intact they believe. They maybe took out 10% of Hamas's rocket potential. That is good. The conclusions that most are making is that this is a temporary hold on the full scale fighting but the ground Palestinian uprising if you will or the violence that occurred in many places on Friday not only in Jerusalem and again on the Temple Mount. There was clashes, there were dozens of Palestinians injured. These are young men mostly who weren't even alive during the last uprising and they actually chanted against the Grand Mufti the chief Muslim leader as he was starting his speech on the Temple Mount on Friday saying we are the sons of Mohammed Deif who is the military commander of Hamas. So Hamas has an army all over the place Jimmy and the ground violence will probably continue and its just a matter of time most are saying before we have the next round of major exchanges. 

JD: David Dolan reporting on the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.

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

David Dolan's report gave us the facts of the ceasefire but also revealed how short lived this ceasefire may be. It is tangible evidence of how allusive peace is in the Middle East today. This pause in fighting the war is helping us to wait for the antichrist to come on the scene to establish a false peace, that's Daniel 9:27.

Moslem extremist and some so-called Christians say that Israel does not have a right to exist as a Jewish State

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Moslem extremist are not the only ones who don't think Israel has a right to exist as a homeland for the Jewish people. In fact there's a Bible college that's located in Bethlehem that is on the for front of anti-Israel crusades by Christians or so called Christians. Talk to us about that particular school. 

DJ: The name of that school is Bethlehem Bible College and it started in 1979 and builds itself as a Christian evangelical college. But you have to wonder about its evangelical commitments because its first bored of directors was formed with leaders from different backgrounds including Orthodox, Catholic, Lutheran, Anglican, and self identified evangelicals. 

On their website they have a three point mission statement which says they're to train people to serve Christ in the world to advocate a Palestinian evangelical perspective and to model Christ through community development. Its courses are credited through Middle East Association for Theological Education, the Palestinian Ministry of Higher Education, and several international theological organizations. 

There was a 2014 Jerusalem post article that had this to say though, "There is another side to BBC not evident on their website. The school has a deeply intrenched anti-Israel position demonstrated through statements and publication of leaders associated with the school and the biannual Christ at the check point conference it sponsors." The article went on to say most recently its media center produced a video that employees numerous errors and false accusations and attempts to demonize Israel. And the Christ at the check point website says this Jimmy, there mission is to challenge evangelicals to take responsibility to help resolve the conflicts the conflicts in Israel and Palestine by engaging with the teaching of Jesus on the kingdom of God. But Jimmy this is misleading because that would involve Israel giving up both their sovereignty and their security. 

JD: David James with the information that some so called Christians join Moslem extremist to say there should not be a Jewish state. 

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

Dave's report should be a wake up call to all Christians to go to the Bible to answer the question should there be a Jewish state in the Middle East. Genesis 15, the Abrahamic Covenant says that there will be a Jewish nation forever. Deuteronomy 30 says they will have a piece of real estate forever in the Middle East as well. God's word is absolute on this matter.

Hamas, an Islamic terror organization in the Gaza Strip, thanks Iran for the rockets and missiles that Hamas is using to attack Israel today

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Well let's go right now to Ken Timmerman. Ken, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad said this week that this would not have happened and it would not even have been possible without the generous help from the Islamic Republic of Iran. So it looks like Iran is a major player behind what's going on. 

KT: Well Jimmy you know I have said for 25 years that we need to pay attention to what the Jihadis say. We need to pay attention to what Muslim clerics say because when they are addressing their own people they use language which often is very clear and this is one example of that. You have a moab in Gaza and you have guy who is a spokesperson for the Quds brigade which is the military wing of Palestinian-Islamic Jihad. 

You have these people saying quite openly we thank the Iranian regime for their help and without them we would not be able to launch rockets on Israel, we would not be able to carry out Jihad, we would not be able to carry out the so called resistance. So it is now coming out quite openly. This is something that the Iranians for many years tried to hide. They've tried to deny that they were supplying weapons to Gaza, to Hamas, to Palestinian Islamic Jihad. 

At one point in 2014 they even had their Ambassadors around the world issuing dramatic indigent statements. How dare you of supplying weapons, our relationship to Hamas is merely political, its nearly humanitarian but of course its been military all along. So I find it refreshing in a way to listen to these Jihadis tell us quite openly that they're benefactor is and has always been the Islamic regime.

JD: Ken Timmerman reporting that the Iranians are supplying Hamas with rockets and missiles to attack the Jewish state.

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

Ken's report is a page out of the end time scenario that is found in Bible prophecy. The nation of Iran is mentioned by the ancient Jewish prophets Daniel, Ezekiel, and Jeremiah. The Palestinians mentioned by the prophets Ezekiel, Malachi, and Obadiah. God's had these ancient Jewish prophets to pre-write history so that we could recognize the last days in which we are living today, days when Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's desire to cancel the Palestinian elections is the cause for the Israeli-Palestinian War

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Maurice what do you think the Palestinian claims are for the cause of this present violence?

MH: So Mahmoud Abbas need to call these elections because he wanted the renewed funding from the United States. It became more and more clear that Fatah was going to lose and therefore they canceled the elections. They simply canceled the elections. Its a simple dictatorship. 

In order to insure that they had a reason to cancel the elections Fatah had already been working for two or three weeks before the holy month of Ramadan. It started in the middle of April. In preparation for that month of Ramadan which is traditionally a time for heighten incitement and heighten violence focusing on the Jews. Mahmoud Abbas himself and the Palestinian Authority ranked up their incitement showing video clips and calling on the Palestinians to strap on their suicide belts and go and blow themselves up on the Jews. And the Palestinians answered that called and started their violence. Seems Fatah was seen as the one who initiated the violence and Fatah is now the one on the Temple Mount fighting with the Israeli police and fighting with the Israeli soldiers.  

Hamas needed to show its colors as also the defender of the Al Aqsa Mosque. They couldn't leave the political scene just only for Fatah. So how does Hamas controls Gaza show their credentials as the defenders of Al Aqsa? They start firing missiles at Israel. Because that's how they show their credentials. That's how they prove we too are the defenders of the Al Aqsa Mosque of the holy site. That's what's really going on. They will claim its a result of Israeli aggression. It has nothing to do with with Israel's actions, Israel's policies, Israel's inactions, nothing whatsoever.  

JD: Maurice Hirsch with his report on how the Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was responsible for starting a war in order to be able to cancel the Palestinian elections.

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

The war between Israel and the Palestinians on the Temple Mount and at the Gaza border is being ratcheted up each and everyday in the Jewish state. The ancient Jewish prophets pre-wrote history as they predicted this scenario some 2,500 years ago. Ezekiel wrote that the Palestinians would kill the Jews and then steal their land, that's Ezekiel 35:5 & 10. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict will continue until the Messiah Jesus Christ returns to the Earth.

"Israel at War" has made a big change in the Israeli political arena

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: We're watching the news here in the West in America, it seems pretty intense. Is it as bad as they're reporting it? What's the situation as of right now Winkie?

WM: Well I would say anything is bad when you have a terrorist organization like Hamas feeling free and able to shot off at this point Jimmy I'm sure we're at about 1,500 rockets so far. About 99 percent of them have been fired into civilian residential sections or schools in discriminately I must say. Israel is portrayed in the media as some sort of giant that must not use disproportionate force against Hamas who hide their rocket launchers in civilian areas and use apartment buildings as their strategic headquarters, and intelligence services, etc. 

JD: I introduced our conversation by saying this is a special edition of Prophecy Today, Israel at war. Now that maybe be a bit of over statement but is that pretty close to actual fact Winkie?

WM: Very close. First of all at the moment I know Israel has thousands of troops gathering at the border with military equipment I must say including tanks and armored vehicles. I cannot say with that is I'm not going to say bluffing but is sort of indicating to Hamas that we're serious. I don't know if a land operation is in the works. Hopefully we'll be able to deplete Hamas from its current armed stores sooner than later. But what is more difficult Jimmy is you and our listeners are probably also seeing that there is internal confrontations here in the cities that have a significant Arab population as well. Where Arabs have been attacking Jews, Jews have been attacking Arabs. In fact its so much getting out of hand that the latest news on Thursday was that Naftali Bennett have suspended negotiations with Yair Lapid and he's opening up coalition negotiations with Benjamin Netanyahu which completely reverses our internal political situation. Things are getting very complicated Jimmy.

JD: Winkie Medad with the latest on Israel at war and how the war is changing the Israeli political arena.

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

On a day to day bases the war is changing the landscape for Israel both politically and prophetically. Malachi chapter 1 where the ancient Jewish prophet Malachi made a statement about the Palestinians who said they would return and they would rebuild. God responded to that statement by saying he would call their borders the borders of wickedness.

Hamas tells Israel to leave the Temple Mount or be bombed with hundreds of missiles

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: David what do you know about the Hamas ultimatum to Israel to get off of the Temple Mount or one hundred times more rockets will fly into and aimed at Jerusalem? What do you know?

DD: Well they issued that on Wednesday just as on Monday they said Israel must pull out of the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood north of Jerusalem where some of this trouble began several weeks ago. Of course it all did begin in Jerusalem and has now spread everywhere. Of course the Israeli's are not going to leave any part of Jerusalem. They have a police station up on the Temple Mount that they are going to continue to maintain. 

There was indeed another barrage of rockets soon after that deadline that they had issued. But the fact that they're issuing these ultimatums to Israel indicates that they are prepared for a fully wide war here. I can tell you that the assessment at the end of the week was that Israel has done tremendous damage to the Hamas infrastructure in the Gaza Strip. It hasn't stopped that group and Islamic Jihad from firing hundreds and hundreds actually its thousands now of rockets into Israel. 

And Jimmy on Friday during the funeral of a 5 year old Israeli boy killed in one of the rocket attacks near the Gaza Strip the funeral was in the near by town and just as the father finished his eulogy for his son rockets started landing everywhere and attendees had to disperse. That shows how callous Hamas is and deliberately trying to kill Israelis. The Israelis of course are trying not to kill as many Palestinian civilians as they can. But 6 were killed on Friday in the West Bank reports said as rioting spread there to almost everywhere. Jimmy its happening. 

JD: David Dolan reporting on the Hamas ultimatum for Israel to leave the Temple Mount or be bombed with hundreds of missiles.

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

Once again the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is the focus of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. That conflict has spread to many cities across the Jewish state and to the Gaza Strip as well. Hamas has been firing hundreds and thousand of missiles and rockets at not only the southern end of Israel but as far north as Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. The Israeli air-force has responded with airstrikes that has destroyed much of the Palestinian military operation in the Gaza Strip. Bible prophecy foretold this scenario in Zechariah 12:2&3. Today we are watching Bible prophecy being fulfilled.

The son of the former President Ronald Reagan is spending millions of dollars to fight Christianity

Listen to Today's Program Play

DJ: This is not imaginary this is a reality.

JD: David let me thank you for staying on top of this story for us. Continue to do that please we need to alert the listeners to prophecy today. You know David I think an advantage that we have in our country that many others in other countries don't have even in the West is that believers make up a larger percentage of our population therefore we have a voice and views that are protected by the Constitution at least for now.

DJ:  Well that's right Jimmy and people are sounding the alarm about this war on Christianity and are pushing back. Back in 2016 a lady named Mary Eberstadt wrote a book called "It's Dangerous To Believe". Then in an article for Time Magazine in June of that year she said traditional American Christians have long been on the losing end of culture war contest. She noted that flagship evangelical schools have had their accreditation question and some secularist argue that Christian schools don't deserve accreditation and activist have targeted even homeschooling for being a Christian thing. 

Last year former Attorney General Jeff Sessions publicly responded to a tax by the Freedom From Religion Foundation which is a national atheist group headed by Ronald Reagan's son. Session said this, "Christians and people of all faith are under attack in America, Ron Reagan's atheist group is spending millions of dollars attacking Christians in the name of religious liberty." Then Sessions went on to say "I can promise you we will not be intimidated by some leftist from Hollywood, my message to people of faith is this I have your back I've spent my whole life fighting to make sure that Christians and people of all faith can boldly live out their faith that is what religious liberty means." So Jimmy we need to stand for the truth for the sake of this and future generations that we need to stay informed and exercise our rights. And most importantly we need to preach and teach the word of God with conviction and without apology. 

JD: David James explaining the war that is being waged against Christianity in our world today.

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

Dave's report on the war being waged against Christianity is just the tip of the iceberg on this war here in America. Time does not allow but I could report that this war is spreading across the entire world. In fact the war will only intensify against believers in the near future that's according to Revelation 6:9-11. Killing believers is part of satan's strategy for the future.

The Arab nations are warning the United States about the Iranian threat

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: You know what I find interesting Ken is not only Israel is concerned about a nuclear powered Iran but now there are many Arab countries and leaders warning the entire West which would include of course the United States. Don't let Iran fool you. They think that they are trying to hood wink most of the leadership of the entire West. What do we know?

KT: Well this is true and you have leaders in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, in Jordan, and other countries all warning publicly. That's what's quite interesting about this warning writing op-ed's in their newspapers. If they're doing that I guarantee they're using all of the diplomatic channels or have exhausted lets say the diplomatic channels and that's why they're writing op-ed's in newspapers. 

The Biden regime is intense on switching American policy from a pro-Saudi, pro-coalition if you wish in the Middle East that is making peace with Israel. They want to switch to a pro-Iranian - pro-Shia policy. This is a very dangerous time to be pulling that kind of shift in US policy. But that's what this is all about. The Saudi's are afraid they're going to get left behind. You have not heard a single word out of Tony Blinken the Secretary of States mouth about the Abraham Accords negotiated by the Trump team in the last year of the Trump Administration. Why? Because the Abraham Accords brought together Israel and several of its former Sunni-Arab enemies. They made peace and they have extensive economic relationship as a result of that and a security relationship as a result of it. So these new allies of Israel are being shunned upon the United States to the benefit of a relationship with the Iranian regime which I think is going to bite the Biden folks in the face.

JD: Ken Timmerman explaining why the Arab nations are warning the United States about the Iranian threat.

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

Ken's report is evidence of how dangerous the Iranians are in the Middle East and to the United States. This warning comes at a time when the American delegation is meeting with the Iranian leaders to discuss the renewal of the Iranian nuclear deal. This deal will allow for sanctions to be dropped from America on Iran and the Iranians to be able to develop their nuclear weapon of mass destruction. The Arab leaders can see this threat however the United States does not see that threat as foretold in Ezekiel 38:5.

Space junk falling to earth is a precursor of stars falling to earth as well

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Don the last couple of days in fact even for over a week we've been hearing about space junk especially in light of the Chinese booster rocket. First of all give me a definition and our friends listening in what is the definition of space junk?

DD: Jimmy during the space age we've inserted a lot of equipment, a lot of material in the Earth orbit. Some times we use booster rockets to help get satellites up and then you have left over parts. The lower parts of rockets or maybe satellites that have no longer use and so these objects are circling the Earth. They do catch the top of our atmosphere which puts a drag on them and sooner or later gravity takes over. They had back to the surface of the Earth. This Chinese debris is unusual and that its a large section of rocket. Now we've sent some large things up into space as well but we usually steer what's leftover so that it will land in the water.

JD: Speaking of space junk I don't know that we could actually refer to what's going to happen according to the prophecy in Revelation 6:13 when the stars will fall out of heaven during the 7 year Tribulation period. Do you think that is literally or is the Lord speaking figuratively or apocalyptically as He relates that particular prophecy?

DD: Well Jimmy I would take those end time events as certainly literal. You know when you have objects falling from the sky much larger than any of our space debris whether its a commit or an astroid. These are hundreds of times larger than any of our Earth satellites. So when these things fall its definitely a major change in the heavens and the sky, a whole new level of magnitude. The stars fall, a star being any of these natural objects in the sky. It's definitely end times events of major proportions.

JD: Dr. Don DeYoung an astronomer giving us the details on space junk.

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

In addition to Don' report on space junk Don confirmed that stars will fall from heaven during the Tribulation period, Revelation 6:13. It will be a literally event in the future. That passage of prophecy is only one of many that speak of activities in heavenlies during the Tribulation period. As usual current events are setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

If you couple the end of Ramadan with Jerusalem Day, you have violence

Listen to Today's Program Play

DD: Some fires were set and the police were called in. Jimmy they're expecting even more trouble on Sunday which is the last day of Ramadan and that's when the Muslims celebrate the giving of the Quran to Muhammad. It usually ends with trouble. It coincide this time with Jerusalem Day, the annual Jewish celebration of the conquest of Jerusalem in 1967 so tensions were already very high. But the police are out and more police are being called in. Meanwhile down in the Gaza Strip the Palestinians have resumed their fire bombing or I should say incinerator device activity sending fiery flying instruments across the border and setting fire. So tensions are very high and more signs that we may be already in a new Palestinian uprising. 

JD: Looks to me David as it was the case with an advisor to Mahmoud Abbas, President of Palestinian Authority. He's been telling Palestinians to fight Israel even unto the death because that's what Islam calls for. So this could be part of that incitement could it not?

DD: Oh well definitely and of course the central issue has always been Jerusalem and Palestinians demand for east Jerusalem under their control, the Temple Mount and the Old City under their control, and Israeli resistance to that. When we have land disputes its always that much greater in other word actual cases of people disputing various pieces of land. But the fact that we have I think it was five or six Arab Knesset members joined in the demonstrations that became violent. One of the Knesset members was actually injured slightly in that. And you know tensions rise and then you get Jewish politicians on the other side in groups fighting back. But the core issue that we've discussed so many times Jerusalem and who controls it there again we're having trouble right around the holiest site on Earth for the Jewish people and also of course a very holy city for Christians and Muslims. 

JD: David Dolan explaining how the end of Ramadan ending on Jerusalem Day will result in violence in the holy city.

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

David's report was what the ancient Jewish prophet Zechariah foretold would happen in the last days. Zechariah 12:2 predicts that Jerusalem would be the center of controversy in the last days. Normally during Ramadan we see an uptick of violence from the Muslim people and you put that together with the celebration of Jerusalem Day and you will have prophecy fulfilled.

Israel celebrates Jerusalem Day, the city that is the Eternal Capital of the Jewish State

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Today I want to talk about Jerusalem Day. It's a very special day especially for the state of Israel. Winkie take a moment and talk to us about what is Jerusalem Day. How did it all come about?

WM: Well Jimmy the Jewish people have been connected to Jerusalem as a city and as its capital where the thrones of David, Solomon and the rest of the kings all sat for about 3,000 years more or less maybe even more. During that time only 19 years was it ever separated into two entities and that was between 1948 and 1967 when the illegal Jordanian Occupation Administration ruled the area as a result of the 1948 War of Independence. And for some reason the Arab, their supporters and ignorant or uneducated people whether their in the media, or in government, or in diplomacy seek to eternalize an east and a west Jerusalem which never really existed except as I said for those 19 years.

 In 1967 when Jerusalem was reunited the outpouring of passion and prayer and acknowledgment to the prophetic fulfillment that once again the Jewish people rule Jerusalem and they do it humanely. You have lived in the city. Christians can go to the church, Muslims can go to Mosque, and Jews go wherever they want to go except the Temple Mount to pray. But the city is open and not like it was divided for the 19 years. This event sent many Jews even those who are not that religious was viewed as a vision come true and that's why we celebrate our united, reunited, undivided, eternal capital of Jerusalem.

JD: Winkie Medad explaining the significance of Jerusalem Day. 

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

The 54th Anniversary of Jerusalem Day marks the reunification of Jerusalem after some 2,000 years. Destroyed in 70 AD the holy city was reunited on June 7, 1967 during the Six Day War. God's declaration in II Samuel 5, 6, and 7 that Jerusalem was the political, spiritual, and eternal capital for the Jewish people was confirmed and once again set in place forever.

God has a wonderful plan for the Jewish people in the future

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: There's a view called Dual Covenant Theology. Can you explain what that is?

DJ: Well Jimmy Dual Covenant Theology says that Gentiles are saved through the New Covenant that Jews can be saved through the Mosaic Covenant so they don't need to be evangelized with the gospel of Jesus Christ which is wrong. Jeremiah 31 makes it very clear that the New Covenant is to and for Israel not the church and it will find fulfillment in the millennial kingdom. 

Finally in Romans 9 Paul notes all the advantages that Jews had throughout history and I think part of his point was that if anybody could have been saved apart from hearing and understanding and believing the gospel of Christ it would have been the Jews of the first century. But in the next chapter Paul says whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved and also that there's no differences between Jews and Greeks in this regard so all must hear the gospel. 

JD: That being said David we know that the Jews still have an important place in God's program. So biblically how do they get from where they are today to the place of blessing in the future?

DJ: God has set them aside until Daniel's 70th week begins in the future and God starts dealing with them again. During that time God's going to pour out His judgement on both them and the Gentile nations for their rebellion against Him. At the same time because of that many Jews will turn to Him including the 144,000 who come to faith who are skilled and who proclaim the gospel. There will be those who still refuse to believe, Matthew 24, where Christ talks about those taken to judgement when He returns. Those who remain will go into the millennial kingdom. For the first time in history every living Jew on the planet will be a believer and that will fill Paul's words, Romans 11:26 where he says and so all Israel will be saved. This will allow that generation to experience a fulfillment of the Abrahamic, the Land, the Davidic, and the New Covenant they will become a kingdom of priest and a holy nation as the Lord says in Exodus 19:6. 

JD: David James using the Bible to explain God's plan for the Jewish people in the future.

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

According to God's plan for the Jewish people in the future found in the Bible it is an eternal plan and included the Abrahamic Covenant that the Jews will be a nation forever, Genesis 15. The Land Covenant, Deuteronomy 30, they'll have a piece of real estate ten times what they have today. The Davidic Covenant which states that Jerusalem will belong to the Jews forever, II Samuel 7. And the New Covenant, Jeremiah 31:31 which says that the Lord will be their God forever and the Jews His people forever.

The Bible states that any and all Catholics must be saved

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: You focus on Catholicism and on Catholic people, why do you say that Catholics need to get saved?

MG: Jimmy the Roman Catholic Church teaches a false and fable gospel. It is a gospel of works righteousness. Catholics teach that the Catholic is saved by water baptisms which is a sacramento justification and regeneration. But later on a Catholic can commit what is called a mortal sin and he's dejustified and must do good works and receive the sacriments in order to be justified again. They deny eternal life in fact the Roman Catholic Church teaches that if a Catholic knows he's going to heaven he's committing a sin of presumption. So our heart is burdened to reach 1.2 billion Roman Catholics. We've been doing this for 30 years.

I written a book called Preparing For Eternity that contrast what the Roman Catholic Bible teaches along with what the Roman Catholic Catechism teaches. It forces Catholics to make a decision. Am I going to trust Christ and His word for my salvation or the teachings and traditions of my religion. And Jimmy you know from II Timothy 2:24 that Satan holds people in bondage, he holds them captive to do his will and the Bible says only the truth of God's word will set them free. In my book Preparing For Eternity I set forth a truth of God's word that has set so many Roman Catholics free from the bondage of religious deception.

JD: Do you believe Mike that any Catholics that are in the Catholic Church today have come to know Christ as Lord and Savior?

MG: Well yes there are a few but only by repenting and believing the gospel can they be saved. The Catholic has been embracing the false gospel of Roman Catholicism they must change their mind, they must repent and believe the true gospel. Once they do the spirit of God will move them out of the Catholic Church because it is an apostate forum of Christianity. And God seeks worshipers and sprit so a born again believer cannot remain in a false religion they must come out and that's the work of the Holy Spirit. 

JD: Mike Gendron with the details on why any and all Catholics today need to get saved.

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

Mike Gendron's ministry believes that all Catholics that follow the traditions of the church must get saved by trusting Jesus alone for that salvation. In fact that's what the apostle Peter believed to be the first Pope had to say as well. That is recorded in Acts 4:10-12. Jesus wants all lost people to get saved not only Catholics. In fact that is why the Rapture has not happened as of yet, that's II Peter 3:9.

May Day, a day of celebration for Communism, played a key role in the early days of modern-day Israel

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Could you give us just a quick background of May Day? What's its significance to the Communist nations?

WM: Well Jimmy the forerunner of Communism was of course the Socialist movements that developed primarily in Germany and in France even before Carl Marks. In the industrial centers of England, France, and Germany especially there were very long hours, 12 to 14 hours a day and children were working. The Socialist weren't very active. Eventually they picked on the day May 1st as a celebration of a workers and a right to strike, etc. Then of course along comes the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. May Day becomes the official holiday of Communist Russia including Socialist Zionist here in Israel. You can still see the red flags being marched down the streets of Tel Aviv until today it's basically part of Arab protest that they've adopted, that May Day protest. 

JD: The kibbutzim that was a part of a Communist belief brought out of Europe into the new Jewish state of Israel was it not?

WM: Well don't forget Jimmy historically speaking the bulk of the early Zionist came either from Russia or Eastern Europe in one form or another and of course Ukraine, it later became Ukraine part of the Russian Empire at the time. They were in this type of thinking because that was what was going on because then there was a zar and people were being shot and killed. People were looking for some way to protest. They adopted that. They brought it to the kibbutzim. The kibbutzim became with a small seed, very communistic. There's a difference between Communism an economic or social way of life and what became unfortunately the Communist Empire very political, very impressive that dominated most of the under developed world including Southeast Asia and South America up until fairly recently say 20 to 30 years ago.

JD: Winkie Medad explaining how Communism was a major part of the lifestyle of the early years of modern day Israel.

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

Winkie's report reveals how the philosophy of Communism is in our world today. This philosophy, Communism practiced in North Korea, China, and Cuba. It is an antichrist religion that will be prevalent in the last days when Communist China and the antichrist partner to rule this world, that's Revelation 16:12-16. That prophecy will be fulfilled very soon.

A Palestinian leader calls for a Palestinian flag to fly over the Temple Mount

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Talk to me about the escalation of violence there in Jerusalem. So you're saying that could lead to war, maybe a third anti-Fatah?

DD: Well yes and you know you can't probably use the term war in the standard since but very intense times. Daily killings, daily terror attacks and all sorts of things. So it is definitely a terror war. If indeed the Palestinian leadership wants that and pushes for that then it will probably happen. They're ready to go it looks like and there's a lot of young Jews that are willing to fight back against that so the clashes have been pretty intense. 

With the rocket fire we now have a Hamas state basically in Gaza which didn't exist in the year 2000 or in 1989 the first uprising so it would be all the worst this time. The Israeli's are preparing for this eventually. And of course also right now we have Iran in the background pushing all of this and arming its forces all over the region. So it could well spark a regional war itself.

JD: I understand David that an Arab member of the Knesset was caught promoting the anti-Fatah and calling for the Palestinian flag to fly over the Temple Mount. That would really insight things would it not?

DD: Well yes and it shows that the support for a new uprising is fairly broad, fairly wide spread. Again the older Palestinians remember the earlier uprisings and how awful they became for everybody basically, how much blood flowed and then in the end nothing really changed on the ground. Periodically they get that bug in them and Jerusalem is of course the things that sets the entire Muslim world alight. The push is on and again all the top leadership making the statements and Palestinian television repeating these fiery statements and it looks like we're going to have a very hot summer.

JD: David Dolan explaining how a Palestinian anti-Fatah, a public uprising could break out in Jerusalem.

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

David Dolan's reporting from Jerusalem for a 30 year period of time is information that has helped each of us to recognize an end of times scenario in Jerusalem today. Flying a Palestinian flag over Judaism's holiest site the Temple Mount would insight an all out war on the Israeli capitol city. Ezekiel 35 states that the Palestinians will kill the Jews and steal their land. That is what an anti-Fatah is all about, happening today in Jerusalem.

John Kerry may not be the only person to leak US Security information to Iran

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: John Kerry supposedly leaking information to the Foreign Minister. I understand that you say there's more than a leak from John Kerry that there's some others involved in leaking US security information. 

KT: You know Jimmy this is a disgraceful story and of course John Kerry has denied there was any leak that he made any leaks. But he has about as much creditability in saying that as Al Capone does in saying he never heard of the mob. John Kerry has really taking the caviler attitude toward US National security and US National interest. He has always thought to denigrate the United States, to slander the United States; he did that while he was Secretary of State. Once he was out of power and the Trump Administration was in control of our foreign policy Kerry met repeatedly with the Iranian Foreign Minister to urge him not to make any concessions to Trump because as soon as Trump was out of office because it would be back to the Iran deal. Now this latest story said in addition to that he also revealed National Security secrets to the Iranians and specifically about Israel's operations against Iranian outpost in Syria. 

We now know that three US Senators including Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, Jeff Merkley, and Chris Coons of Delaware all three of them Democrats met with Javad Zarif the Iranian Foreign Minister and other Iranians at the Munich Security Conference in 2020. They tried to keep that secret when it finally leaked out. They said oh yeah we had a meeting but it did not violate the Logan Act because we're US Senators and we can do whatever we please. If Kerry's leaks are investigated by the US Congress they will discover that other members of team Biden, people who were advising him on National Security affairs were also in contact with the Iranians. I think if an investigation is done of John Kerry we may learn more about his involvement or the involvement of other US National Security Advisors to then candidate Joe Biden. 

JD: Ken Timmerman explaining why there may be leakers of US Security information to Iran other than John Kerry. 

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

2,000 years ago Jesus Christ said that wars and rumors of wars would be a major sign of His return to Earth, that's Matthew 24:6 & 7. As nations jokey for position in our world today to become superpowers intelligence gathering will be a major component of who does lead this world in the future.
