Many prophecy students say that the Pope is the Antichrist

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: A number of people who tend to think that the Pope will be the Antichrist. Your thoughts from a Biblical prospective?

DJ: Well Jimmy even going back to the reformers many thought the Pope is the Antichrist. But John says in I John that the Antichrist is someone who denies that Jesus is coming in the flesh but Roman Catholicism affirms Jesus did. And one reason people think the Pope will be the Antichrist is because of the harlot in Revelation 17. The Antichrist will be a political and military leader who will rise from obscurity. The little horn of Daniel 7 and He will revive the Roman Empire based on chapters 2 and 7 of Daniel. 

Many don't realize there will actually be two world religions during the Tribulation period. The first global false religious system seems to be centered in Rome as described in Revelation 17. The global apostate ecumenical Christianity with perhaps a Roman Catholic foundation which will likely absorb most other religions around the world. But in Revelation 17, "and the 10 horns which you saw on the beast these will hate the harlot, maker her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire." So the leaders of the revived Roman Empire will destroy the first world religion around the midpoint of the Tribulation. Then the second world religious system begins when the Antichrist defiles the rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem as described in Daniel 9 and Matthew 24, and he will declare himself to be God as foretold in II Thessalonians 2. This all happens after the Rapture and the world is being prepared and the stage is being set for what's coming.

JD: David James, Bible in hand explaining what the Bible says about the Antichrist. 

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

The bottom line is that nobody knows who the Antichrist is today, that world leader of the future. What we can know for sure is what God's word says about the Antichrist. Revelation 13:2 reveals that Satan will energize a man and give him his power and seat of authority as Antichrist. When the Antichrist goes into the Temple in Jerusalem, II Thessalonians 2:4 claims to be God which is the abomination of desolation he will establish a new religion Satan worship which will be destroyed at the second coming of Jesus Christ, Revelation 19:11 and following. Today we do not need to know who the Antichrist is. What we need to know is that we are prepared for the next event, the Rapture of the church.

There is a reason that God created the Sun, Moon, Stars and the planets

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Genesis chapter 1 on the fourth day of creation Jesus Christ brought the moon, the sun, and the stars into existence but what about the planets what is a planet, Don?

DD: I believe on day four along with the sun, moon, stars God also makes the planets the comets, and lots of other material in deep space.

JD: When we think about Jupiter I'm excited because I was looking up and I do believe I found Jupiter in the sky.

DD: It's an easy one to see. Jupiter is a very bright planet. Now it is a long way away but it is also very large so it's a good reflector.

JD: I understand that things in the heavens happen exactly on time.

DD: You know these objects they follow the laws that God established. What can you say they obeyed the laws or the faithfulness of the physical universe that God set up.

JD: I understand that Jupiter is about two and a half times more massive than all the other planets that are combined.

DD: Yes, Jupiter does stand out. Its mass is more than double all the other planets combined. Jupiter is much larger than the Earth. If you could just imagine an analogy if the Earth was let's say the size of a grape then Jupiter would be the size of a basketball. On the other hand, Jupiter would not be a place to live it does not even have a solid surface. It's a large sphere of gas and materials.

JD: As best as you can determine your study of the Bible and of course your study of astronomy why did God create these planets then if we could not live on Jupiter? What's the purpose for this planet?

DD: Well that is a good question of why there is so much variety and space seems to go on and on with types of stars and different objects. I think all we can say is that it's the work of God's fingers. It shows that God is the master artist and made variety much that we have not even seen yet. At the same time the Earth even though it's not the largest object is special. The Lord Jesus walked here. According to Genesis 1, the Earth was even the very first object made. The sun, moon, and stars come along on day number four. So the Earth does stand out as a special creation where God gave his attention.

JD: Dr. Don DeYoung with the reasons that God created the sun, moon, stars, and the planets.

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

Don's understanding of astronomy and the Bible helps us to understand why creation took place some 6,000 years ago. The heavens do declare God's glory as stated in Psalm 19. At the same time creation is setting the stage for the prophetic truth of God's word to be fulfilled in the near future.

Turkey has a map of the area that they would like to rule over which includes the entire Middle East with the exception of Israel and Iran

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: We often talk about Turkey, though they are not a member in the European Union they are a part of NATO which is the military operation for the EU. Turkey this last week seems to be signaling a sweeping regional ambition all the way from Southeast Europe to Central Asia. Those ambitions for Tayyip Erdogan wanting to be the Pan Islamic leader of the world, give us the latest.

JR: Yes the regional ambitions of Turkey has never subsided but they come to surface regularly. The latest issue was a map that had come out from George Freedom's book "The Next 100 Years". He is the founder of strait for which was sort of a paid for an intelligence type organization. They have many many good things. I've read the book, "The Next 100 Years". It's just a projection but it shows that the Turkish influence and the map of Turkish influence in 2050 is essentially the entire Middle East, all the Middle East except Israel and Iran. And so it sort of turning heads in Iran and then as well in Russia because this paved way Turkey had the influence in that entire southern region of the former Soviet Republic then they can basically take from Central Asia all the way to Turkey and expand their influence at the expense of Russia. So now Russia and Turkey are at a bit of a confrontation because of Turkey's reference to this map which is published from this intelligence organization. 

JD: John Rood with the details on Turkey's ambitions to control the entire Middle East with the exception of Israel and Iran.

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

For a number of years Tayyip Erdogan, President of Turkey has expressed his desire to be the Pan Islamic leader of the world today. Now there is a map that demonstrates that ambition. The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel revealed that ambition some 2,500 years ago, that's Ezekiel 38:2 & 6. That passage of prophetic Scripture mentions Meshech, Tubal, Gomer, and Togarmah which is modern day Turkey. Turkey on the verge of fulfilling Bible prophecy.

God has chosen the location of the next Temple in Jerusalem and it is not where some men say that it will be located

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Where was Herod's Temple located?

WM: According to my studies and learning exactly where the Temple Mount is today. It has not moved. It is exactly geo physically sitting to the rabbinical distributions in the town wood. The fact that it's on top of a mountain and I cannot accept that the location is where some people are trying to put it closer to the City of David which is way down in the valley.

JD: Why do you say it cannot be in the City of David?

WM: First of all let's put aside any sort of "biblical knowledge". The archeological finds that have been discovered over a half a century including the ritual baths at the southern end of the current Temple Mount, the descriptions of the walls, the underground diggings that have been done especially all along the Western Wall all the way to the Northern Wall underground, we use to call it the Hasmonean Tunnel. And other evidence combined with the fact that over the past almost 2,000 years we have a constant testimony from Roman sources, from Jewish sources, from Byzantine all point to the fact that the Temple Mount is where it is today just above and behind the Western Wall.  

JD: It's a place where God wants it to be and God will play the big role in where that Temple is rebuilt.

WM: That is definitely the case. That is what all the instructions are and that's all the indications are at the present moment. As we always say man has to do the best he can based on his heritage, legacy, his relationship with God and the historical element that will all point us in the direction as you mentioned of this what we call the Third future Temple in our redemption time. 

JD: Winkie Medad with 50 years of study and research on the location for the next Temple in Jerusalem.

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

The Biblical details for the next Temple to be built in Jerusalem are absolute. Past, present, and future Temples in Jerusalem are under God's direct authority. Future Temple's like the Tribulation Temple and the Messiah's Temple must conform to God's word on Temples. The Tribulation Temple, Daniel 9:27 and Matthew 24:15 and the Messiah's Temple, Ezekiel 40-46. Jewish Temple's in Jerusalem play a key role in God's prophetic plan.

A U.S. military leader says that China could be the worlds number one military in a very short time

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: China could invade Taiwan in the next 6 years and assume global leadership that's according to a US Admiral warning that this could be the case. 

KT: Well Jimmy it sounds to me that Admiral Philip Davidson who is the commander of the Indo-Pacific Command must be at the end of his tour to become so candid in his testimony before Congress. The things that he said earlier this week are absolutely extraordinary I think. Number one he said that the threat to Taiwan by Communist China is extreme. He said Taiwan is clearly one of their ambitions. He said the threat is manifest during this decade "in fact in the next 6 years". So he is expecting an invasion of Taiwan within the next 6 years by Communist China. 

He also pointed out that China's Navy is now bigger than the US Navy. They have over 350 surface ships. We may have better quality ships, we certainly have more aircraft carriers. They only have two today but their building another two and the number four in that list will be their first nuclear powered aircraft air carrier. People think of China as a regional power. You do not need a nuclear powered aircraft carrier that allows you to stay at sea for basically forever without refueling. You don't need that unless you want to go beyond the South China Sea even beyond even the Indian Ocean. You need that to steam around the world like we do with our aircraft carrier group. So this naval expansion of Communist China is very worrying. 

JD: Ken Timmerman explaining how China could assume world military leadership in a very short time. 

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

Both the United States and China are vying to be number one militarily in our world today. Now with China having the largest Navy in the world it sets this Communist nation in a position to be number one militarily as well. With America not mentioned in Bible prophecy and China foretold to be a major force in the last days, Revelation 16:12 and then add to that China having a partnership with the antichrist in the last days Ken's report of China's aggressive moves in our world today is helping us to understand how this Communist nation is set to fulfill Bible prophecy very very quickly.

An atheist can become a born again Christian

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Atheism and atheist who have actually become believers in Christ. And then we want to also discuss how we might minister to those who claim to be atheists.

DJ: A high ranking official in a Kenyan atheist organization said Saturday he had accepted Christ and he had resigned from his position because he no longer wanted to promote atheism in the country. And then the atheist reported on their website, "this evening regretfully the secretary of the atheist and Kenya society Mr. Seth Mahiga informed me that he has made the decision to resign from his position as secretary of the society". Then reason for resigning is that he has found Jesus Christ and he is no longer interested in promoting atheism in Kenya, we wish Seth all the best in his new found relationship with Jesus Christ.

JD: David what do you think are some important things to keep in mind when it comes to interacting with those who say that they are atheist?

DJ: Well Jimmy I think perhaps the most important thing to remember is the Holy Spirit is the only one who can effect change in someone. We don't need to think if we can't answer every objection that an atheist might have on historical, scientific, or philosophical grounds then we can't have a ministry in their lives, we can. In Romans 1:16 Paul says I'm not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for its the power of God the salvation and you know it's the Holy Spirit who convicts someone of the truth. In Romans 10:17 faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. In this spiritual battle, we read in Ephesians 6:17 about the sword of the spirit which is the word of God. 

Along with this Peter says in I Peter 3:15, always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks a reason for the hope that is in you. That word for defense is the Greek word apologia from which we get the word apologetics which is the defense of the faith. Being knowledgeable in different areas is something the Lord can use. Prayer, love, humility, and consistency in the Christian walk are extremely important because it precedes hateful spirit or pride in hypocrisy among Christians are all excuses that are frequently used by the loss to justify themselves and their own thinking and lifestyle. 

JD: David James with the details on how an atheist can become a born-again Christian.

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

As David told us in his report an atheist, one who denies that there is a God can become a born-again Christian. Romans 1:16 the gospel, the power of Salvation. The faith to become a Christian comes from the Bible, Romans 10:17.

The Pentagon is more involved in "social engineering" than preparing our troops for war, and at the same time there is an alarming increase of sexual assaults in the military against men

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Bob you sent a note to many of us who are in the media about the social engineering that seemingly is going on at the Pentagon.

BM: Well that's correct Jimmy. There are a number of issues whether it has to do with targeting people so-called extremist or promoting transgenders or this whole critical race theory and woke policies that are dating our Armed Forces. Arguably it is really undermining the effectiveness of our Armed Forces.

JD: Looks like the American Armed Forces are going to be politically correct but very hollow as a military force to defend the United States. Your thoughts?

BM: That's correct Jimmy. They're hollowing it out of people's religious and conservative views and replacing it as best as these Leftists think with people that quite frankly don't tend to embrace conservative or patriotic views and will be a hollow force. 

I was reading a study that was put out by the Ram Corporation which tends to be Leftist. They did a survey that found that sexual assault in the military that 52% of all current sexual assault is perpetrated on them. That's an alarming figure. It indicates that we have a growing minority that self identify as other than heterosexual. In other words, they're homosexual or something else. They are being sexually assaulted at a higher rate. So you have a lot of homosexual sexual assaults that are taking place in the Armed Forces at an inordinate level. 

JD: Colonel Bob Maginnis revealing to us the alarming rise in sexual assaults in the United States military.

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

Colonel Maginnis who works at the Pentagon brings to our attention what is happening in our military. Social engineering instead of preparing our troops for war and at the same time an alarming rise in sexual assaults against men in the United States military. Romans 1:21-32 reveals God's judgment against homosexuality, and Luke 17 warns that in the last day's homosexuality will be on the increase in our society.

A war with Iran would not be an easy war for Israel to win

Listen to Today's Program Play

A war between Israel and Iran would not be an easy war for Israel to win. You would probably agree
with that assessment.

Yes, because it wouldn't just be against Iran.
It would involve, as we've discussed so many times and the Israeli leaders have said openly and others,
analysts have confirmed, it would involve Iran's proxy forces, the largest one being Hezbollah in
Lebanon, with we believe about 150,000 missiles, increasingly, they’re precision-guided.
Hezbollah is rebuilding its forces along the border and strengthening its positions and the UN is
supposed to be curbing that, a war against Iran would involve that, it would involve certainly Hamas and
Islamic Jihad firing rockets and doing nefarious things along the Gaza border. It would probably involve
drone attacks coming from Yemen as well to southern Israel.
They've got all the Iranian-linked militias in Iraq that are closer physically to Israel than Iran, much
closer. And as we talked last week, they're even attempting, Iran is, to take over next door, Jordan. So,
Israel is basically surrounded by Iranian forces, and Iran itself has for sure been building up their Navy,
their army, and particularly their drone missile forces.
So, this drone attack overnight on Thursday, not far from Oman, is very, very ominous to the Israelis,
even though it wasn't an Israeli ship again; it was managed by an Israeli company based in London that
is headed by an Israeli billionaire. So, all of these things signs that conflict is coming.

David Dolan explaining why an Israeli/Iranian war would not be an easy war for Israel to win.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Think about this with me. Dave Dolan’s report mentioned all of the proxies that Iran has at its disposal
for any future war with Israel. David mentioned the Iranian proxies that surround the Jewish state.
Politically today, Israel would face a coalition of Islamic radicals financed and armed by the Iranian
Islamic Republic.
Prophetically, the ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel reveals the scenario for just such a war. Ezekiel 38:5
mentions Persia, which is modern-day Iran. However, in Biblical times, Iran included Afghanistan,
Pakistan and Iran. With these nations and Iran's proxies, only God could intercede to protect the state of
Israel. That’s Ezekiel chapter 39 verses 1-6, and that is my prophetic prospective on the news today.
