Prophecies Fulfilled in the Life of Christ, Part 5 (The Prophet Daniel’s Report #655)

Welcome to The Prophet Daniel’s Report. This is report #655.

My name is Daniel Whyte III here to remind you that Jesus Christ is coming back soon and that you need to be prepared. This broadcast is not about predictions, nor is it about setting dates as some foolishly have done, however it is all about preparation.

First, today, let’s look at some Signs of His Coming in the news.

The disciples asked Jesus in Matthew 24:3, “What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” Jesus Christ gave them (and us) clear signs that show us when we can begin to expect to see the Coming of the Lord and the end of the world. Looking at world events through the lens of the Word of God, let’s look at some headlines from today’s news that point to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

First, today, under the Sign category of WARS & RUMOURS OF WARS — According to The Times of Israel, Israeli Air Force chief Amikam Norkin [AM-EE-KAM NOR-KIN] said the military’s multi-tiered network of air defense systems were “on alert” amid a general threat of attack by Iran. In recent weeks, the military has begun to believe that Tehran intends to eventually retaliate against Israel’s regular airstrikes against its forces and proxies in the region. The Israel Defense Forces believes this could take the form of a large-scale attack involving cruise missiles and attack drones, similar to the strike on Saudi Arabia’s Aramco petroleum facility that was attributed to Iran. Earlier this week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Iran intends to attack Israel from Yemen, which may make intercepting such a strike more difficult as the IDF’s intermediate and long-range air defenses are better positioned to shoot down incoming attacks from Israel’s north, rather than from the south.

Second, today, under the Sign category of TURMOIL IN THE MIDDLE EAST — According to Israel National News, Brigadier General Kioomars Heidari [KY-OO-MERS HI-DAHR-EE], the commander of the Iranian Army’s Ground Force, announced the production of a new model of Farpad-type drones. The drones were transferred to the Iranian military’s operational units after operational tests were successful. Heidari [HI-DAHR-EE] claimed the new drone is intended for ongoing security, surveillance, searches, border control and other similar missions, and is intended to be used by the offensive infantry, rapid intervention units and intelligence units. He further said that the drone is controlled from a ground station, it was equipped with electronic attack protection systems and has the ability to photograph targets. Iran often boasts of its military accomplishments, though it is not always possible to say with certainty that it is telling the truth about those accomplishments.

Third, today, under the Sign category of RISE OF GOG & MAGOG — According to Reuters, Russia’s most advanced new nuclear-powered submarine test-launched a Bulava [BOO-LA-VA] intercontinental ballistic missile for the first time and hit a target thousands of kilometres away, the Defence Ministry said. The test was carried out while the Borei [BOR-RAY] -class vessel was submerged and comes amid arms control tensions between Moscow and the West following the demise of a landmark Cold War-era nuclear pact that has sparked fears of a burgeoning arms race. The launch was conducted in the White Sea off Russia’s north with a dummy payload reaching a test site in the Far East Russian region of Kamchatka [KAM-CHAAT-KUH], the ministry said. The Knyaz [NY-YAZ] Vladimir submarine is the first upgraded 955A model to be produced in the Borei [BOR-RAY] class of Russian nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines. It will enter service with Russia’s Northern Fleet at the end of this year once it has completed trials including weapons tests, the fleet’s commander, Vice Admiral Alexander Moiseev [MOY-EH-SEEV] said.

Now, it’s time for Prophecy Bootcamp.

Prophecy Bootcamp is where we deal with the basics of prophecy, the Second Coming of Christ, and what will happen in the future according to the Bible. Our aim here is not to make predictions but to help you get prepared by understanding how things will unfold in the end times.

Our topic for today is titled “Prophecies Fulfilled in the Life of Christ” (Part 5)” from Tim LaHaye and Ed Hindson’s book “The Essential Guide to Bible Prophecy.”

These are just three of the approximately 120 distinct Old Testament prophecies of the first coming of Christ. They are like pieces of a puzzle. Each presents a distinct element of the Savior’s life and ministry, but the whole picture portrayed by these pieces can be seen only after their fulfillment. Not until Jesus came did these prophecies come into clear relation with one another. The chances of all these prophecies being fulfilled in the life of one man is one chance in 84 followed by 131 zeroes.

These 120 prophecies of Christ’s first coming are overwhelming evidence of the divine origin of Scripture, the messiahship of Jesus, and the truth of Christianity. When viewed as a whole, the collective impact of these prophecies and their fulfillment in the Gospels cannot be easily dismissed by unbelievers. Again, the mathematical possibility of all these predictions being fulfilled in one person is absolutely astounding.

Louis Lapides [LAH-PEH-DEES] grew up in a Jewish family in New Jersey. During a time of reflection on his own spiritual journey, he realized that the description of the Messiah in Isaiah 53 perfectly fit the portrait of Jesus of Nazareth. Now a pastor, his studies and life experiences have led him from skepticism regarding messianic prophecies concerning Jesus to personally embracing Him as Messiah in his own life.

In an interview, Lapides [LAH-PEH-DEES]was asked, “If the prophecies were so obvious to you and pointed so unquestionably toward Jesus, why don’t more Jews accept Him as their Messiah?”

He answered, “In my case, I took the time to read them.” In many cases, we undervalue the impact of the fulfilled prophecies regarding Jesus Christ because of our lack of study regarding how specifically the Bible has spoken. In out study together, we’ll discover that Scripture has frequently spoken very specifically regarding many events, both those fulfilled in the past as well as those that are yet to be fulfilled.

Lord willing, we will begin looking at “What About Future Prophecies?” in our next podcast.

In closing, let’s consider what God wants you and I to do in light of His Second Coming.

Jesus Christ said in Luke 19:13 to “Occupy till I come.” In light of that, we are continuing our journey through the book, “Coming Events and Present Duties,” by J.C. Ryle. It is a collection of what he called “prophetic tracts” that focus on the believer’s duty in light of the signs which point to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

This section is titled, “What Time Is It?” (Part 15). J.C. Ryle writes:

5. What shall we say to the drying up of the Mahometan [MAY-HOM-EH-TAN] power? Two hundred and fifty years ago, men doubted whether the Turks might not overrun all Europe! No army seemed able to resist them. Province after province fell into their hands. When Martin Luther in his sermons wanted an illustration of boundless worldly power, he would choose for his example “the Turkish empire!” But now all is changed. Without much outward violence the Mahometan [MAY-HOM-EH-TAN] strength has gradually dwindled away. There has been a collapse, a consumption, a worm at the heart of all their might. In spite of all the help of the Christian allies, the Turkish empire is like a man sick of a sore disease. He may rally for a time by the help of strong remedies, and by the admission of new elements into his constitution, but he will never again be an exclusive, persecuting, purely Mahometan [MAY-HOM-EH-TAN] power. The days of pure, intolerant Mahometanism [MAY-HOM-EH-TAN-ISM] seem past and gone for ever. And what saith the Scripture? I quote symbolical prophecy with reverence, and readily allow I may be wrong in its application; but the passage I refer to is very remarkable:–“The sixth angel poured out his vial on the river Euphrates; and the waters thereof were dried up, that the way of the kings of the East might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.”

If the Lord tarries His Coming and we live, we will continue looking at this topic in our next broadcast/podcast.

CLOSING PRAYER
…….

Remember the words of the Lord in Matthew 24:42: “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.” Matthew 24:44 says, “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”

If you are not ready for the Return of Jesus Christ, may I encourage you to get ready today by receiving Him as your Savior. Here is how:

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…” Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here is the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9-13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Keep looking up for your redemption draweth nigh. Let us join in the prayer of John the Revelator — “Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” God bless you.

Prophecies Fulfilled in the Life of Christ, Part 4 (The Prophet Daniel’s Report #654)

Welcome to The Prophet Daniel’s Report. This is report #654.

My name is Daniel Whyte III here to remind you that Jesus Christ is coming back soon and that you need to be prepared. This broadcast is not about predictions, nor is it about setting dates as some foolishly have done, however it is all about preparation.

First, today, let’s look at some Signs of His Coming in the news.

The disciples asked Jesus in Matthew 24:3, “What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” Jesus Christ gave them (and us) clear signs that show us when we can begin to expect to see the Coming of the Lord and the end of the world. Looking at world events through the lens of the Word of God, let’s look at some headlines from today’s news that point to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

First, today, under the Sign category of WARS & RUMOURS OF WARS — According to Ynet News, Israel is preemptively bolstering its defenses over fears that Iran may retaliate against an ongoing series of attacks on its proxies in Syria and Iraq that have been attributed to Israel, Army Radio reported. Citing unnamed sources, the report claimed Israel was focusing its defense capabilities on harder to detect, low-flying cruise missiles and drone strikes – unlike high-arcing ballistic missiles that are easier to intercept. As tensions escalate in the region, the IDF has been on high alert and the security cabinet will convene for an impromptu meeting next week, according to sources. Last month, citing several Iranian, Western and Iraqi sources, Reuters reported that Tehran had dispatched missiles to its allies as a “back-up plan” in case Iran was attacked by the United States or Israel. The missiles, of which were said to be in the dozens, were intended to send a warning to the U.S. and Israel, especially following several airstrikes on Iranian troops in Syria that analysts have attributed to the Israel.

Second, today, under the Sign category of TURMOIL IN THE MIDDLE EAST — According to BBC News, Turkey and Russia have agreed on what they say is a “historic” deal aimed at keeping Kurdish forces away from Syria’s border with Turkey. It comes during a pause in Turkey’s offensive to drive Kurdish forces out, creating a “safe zone” in the area. Under the deal, Syrian and Russian forces will immediately oversee a withdrawal of Kurdish forces. There is no word from the Kurdish fighters, whom Turkey regards as terrorists. The deal sets out plans for joint Turkish-Russian patrols along the border. The agreement was announced after six hours of talks between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Russian host, Vladimir Putin, in the Black Sea resort of Sochi [SAW-CHEE]. A ceasefire brokered by the US was set to expire and Turkey had threatened to re-launch its offensive against the Kurdish fighters. It said there was now “no need”.

Third, today, under the Sign category of MOVEMENT TOWARD A ONE-WORLD ECONOMY — According to The Wall Street Journal, Social media giant Facebook plans to reveal its new Libra digital cryptocurrency next week with backing from over a dozen other companies. Visa and Mastercard are reportedly quite invested in the currency while other Silicon Valley firms such as PayPal, Uber, Stripe, and Booking.com are fully supporting the currency. Each of these firms will invest around$10 million to fund further development of the currency and become part of the Libra Association. The association will act as an independent group which will govern the coin independently from Facebook. The involvement of Visa and Mastercard is interesting as cryptocurrency can act as a viable alternative to the services offered by these firms and could be direct competition, some have suggested that the firm’s involvement is an attempt to keep track of Facebook’s currency, while others have implied alternative motivations. Users will be able to send Libra via Facebook products such as WhatsApp and Messenger, reports also claim that a number of partnerships with online retailers will allow users to spend the coin in many locations online. Facebook is reportedly also considering developing ATM-like physical machines in which people can convert their regular money into Libra. The cryptocurrency is reported to be called Libra and will be revealed on June 18, with plans to release the coin fully in 2020. Previously Libra was announced as “GlobalCoin.”

Now, it’s time for Prophecy Bootcamp.

Prophecy Bootcamp is where we deal with the basics of prophecy, the Second Coming of Christ, and what will happen in the future according to the Bible. Our aim here is not to make predictions but to help you get prepared by understanding how things will unfold in the end times.

Our topic for today is titled “Prophecies Fulfilled in the Life of Christ” (Part 4)” from Tim LaHaye and Ed Hindson’s book “The Essential Guide to Bible Prophecy.”

What is the significance of Jesus entering the city on a young donkey? The Jewish prophet Zechariah wrote,

“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.”

Utilizing donkeys for travel was common during this time, but specifically referring to “a colt, the foal of a donkey” demonstrates a level of accuracy that appears to have no other explanation than predictive prophecy. Amazingly, Zechariah penned these words around 550 years before the event!

In yet another prophecy, Matthew shared the financial motivation behind Judas Iscariot’s betrayal of Jesus: “Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver”.

Interestingly, Matthew, the former tax collector, noted that an Old Testament prophet had previously predicted this specific amount of money. God commanded Zechariah to “shepherd the flock marked for slaughter”. After a dispute about his work, he ended his shepherding. In his exit interview with his employer, he remarked, “‘If you think it best, give me my pay; but if not, keep it.’ So they paid me thirty pieces of silver”. This visual form of teaching served as a specific prophecy regarding the exact price the chief priests paid Judas Iscariot to betray Jesus.

Lord willing, we will continue looking at “Prophecies Fulfilled in the Life of Christ” in our next podcast.

In closing, let’s consider what God wants you and I to do in light of His Second Coming.

Jesus Christ said in Luke 19:13 to “Occupy till I come.” In light of that, we are continuing our journey through the book, “Coming Events and Present Duties,” by J.C. Ryle. It is a collection of what he called “prophetic tracts” that focus on the believer’s duty in light of the signs which point to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

This section is titled, “What Time Is It?” (Part 14). J.C. Ryle writes:

4. What shall we say to the wars and shakings of nations which we have seen in these last seventy years? The mightiest empires on earth have been shaken to their very foundations. Kings, and princes, and great men, have been driven from their high position by scores, and been made wanderers on the face of the earth. There has been no accounting for it by any human reasoning. These movements have taken place in the face of increased knowledge, civilization, and desire of peace. The shock came from beneath. And what saith the Scripture? “Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines and pestilences and earthquakes in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

If the Lord tarries His Coming and we live, we will continue looking at this topic in our next broadcast/podcast.

Prophecies Fulfilled in the Life of Christ, Part 3 (The Prophet Daniel’s Report #653)

Welcome to The Prophet Daniel’s Report. This is report #653.

My name is Daniel Whyte III here to remind you that Jesus Christ is coming back soon and that you need to be prepared. This broadcast is not about predictions, nor is it about setting dates as some foolishly have done, however it is all about preparation.

First, today, let’s look at some Signs of His Coming in the news.

The disciples asked Jesus in Matthew 24:3, “What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” Jesus Christ gave them (and us) clear signs that show us when we can begin to expect to see the Coming of the Lord and the end of the world. Looking at world events through the lens of the Word of God, let’s look at some headlines from today’s news that point to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

First, today, under the Sign category of WARS & RUMOURS OF WARS — According to Israel National News, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told US President Donald Trump that Turkey will never declare a ceasefire in northeastern Syria and that it will not negotiate with Kurdish forces it is fighting in its offensive into the region. Speaking to reporters on a flight back from Baku, Erdogan said the offensive would continue until it reaches its goals, and added that he was not worried about sanctions. ‘They say ‘declare a ceasefire’. We will never declare a ceasefire,’ Erdogan declared. ‘They are pressuring us to stop the operation. They are announcing sanctions. Our goal is clear. We are not worried about any sanctions.’ Turkish soldiers last Wednesday launched a cross-border assault against Kurdish fighters Turkey sees as terrorists. The Turkish attack is aimed at the US-allied YPG, the key component of the forces who fought Islamic State (ISIS). The group is seen by Ankara as a terrorist group linked to Kurdish separatist insurgents in Turkey.

Second, today, under the Sign category of TURMOIL IN THE MIDDLE EAST — According to The Times of Israel, The Lebanese army accused Israel of sending a reconnaissance drone over Beirut’s southern suburbs, a bastion of the Shiite terror group Hezbollah. On August 25, two explosives-laden drones were sent to the same area. One of them exploded, sparking a dangerous escalation between Hezbollah and Israel. “One of the Israeli enemy’s reconnaissance drones violated Lebanese air space… overflew the southern suburbs and left,” the army said in a statement. According to Israeli and international media reports, the target of the August attack was technology used in producing long-range precision missiles, and its destruction had set back the program by at least a year. The reported Beirut drone attack came after Israel carried out airstrikes in neighboring Syria to thwart what it said was a plot to fly explosives-laden drones into the country. Two Hezbollah members were among those killed in the strike.

Third, today, under the Sign category of TURMOIL IN THE MIDDLE EAST — According to Space Daily, Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Wednesday that Iran could have taken the step to develop nuclear weapons but will not because their use is “haram”, or forbidden in Islam. “Although we could have taken steps on this path, based on Islamic ruling we firmly and bravely said we won’t take this path,” Khamenei said. “Both building and stockpiling it is wrong, as using it is haram. If we had a nuclear weapon, it would have been obvious that it would have been impossible for us to use anywhere,” said the Iranian leader. Iran vehemently denies having ever sought an atomic bomb and says its nuclear programme is for peaceful energy production and medical purposes only.

Now, it’s time for Prophecy Bootcamp.

Prophecy Bootcamp is where we deal with the basics of prophecy, the Second Coming of Christ, and what will happen in the future according to the Bible. Our aim here is not to make predictions but to help you get prepared by understanding how things will unfold in the end times.

Our topic for today is titled “Prophecies Fulfilled in the Life of Christ” (Part 3)” from Tim LaHaye and Ed Hindson’s book “The Essential Guide to Bible Prophecy.”

Another clear example is found in Matthew’s account of the wise men.

“Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet, And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.” (Matthew 2:2-6, quoting Micah 5:2-4)

These Jewish scholars were well aware of Micah’s prophecy long before Jesus was revealed. Yet Micah had spoken these words 700 years earlier with explicit precision regarding the exact location of the Messiah’s birth.

Luke’s Gospel recalls a fulfilled Old Testament prophecy related to Christ’s entry into Jerusalem on the day we call Palm Sunday.

“And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them. And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt? And they said, The Lord hath need of him. And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon. And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.” (Luke 19:32-36)

Lord willing, we will continue looking at “Prophecies Fulfilled in the Life of Christ” in our next podcast.

In closing, let’s consider what God wants you and I to do in light of His Second Coming.

Jesus Christ said in Luke 19:13 to “Occupy till I come.” In light of that, we are continuing our journey through the book, “Coming Events and Present Duties,” by J.C. Ryle. It is a collection of what he called “prophetic tracts” that focus on the believer’s duty in light of the signs which point to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

This section is titled, “What Time Is It?” (Part 13). J.C. Ryle writes:

3. What shall we say to the wonderful spread of knowledge and communication between nations in these days? Seventy years ago to find a poor man who could read, was rather an uncommon thing. In a few years a man who cannot read will be a rare sight. Seventy years ago there were few who ever travelled beyond the bounds of their own county. Now every one can move in every direction, and our population is like a swarm of bees disturbed. Steam navigation and railways have altered the character of society. Time and space are made nothing of. Seas, mountains, and rivers are no longer obstacles. God separated the nations in the day of Babel. Man is working hard to make them all one again. And what saith the Scripture? “Shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”

If the Lord tarries His Coming and we live, we will continue looking at this topic in our next broadcast/podcast.

Prophecies Fulfilled in the Life of Christ, Part 2 (The Prophet Daniel’s Report #652)

My name is Daniel Whyte III here to remind you that Jesus Christ is coming back soon and that you need to be prepared. This broadcast is not about predictions, nor is it about setting dates as some foolishly have done, however it is all about preparation.

First, today, let’s look at some Signs of His Coming in the news.

The disciples asked Jesus in Matthew 24:3, “What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” Jesus Christ gave them (and us) clear signs that show us when we can begin to expect to see the Coming of the Lord and the end of the world. Looking at world events through the lens of the Word of God, let’s look at some headlines from today’s news that point to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

First, today, under the Sign category of TURMOIL IN THE MIDDLE EAST — According to The Jerusalem Post, Iran could use a combination of cruise missiles and advanced drones to attack Israel, in a manner similar to the attack on the Saudi oil fields last month, Israel’s Immigration and Absorption Minister Yoav Gallant [YOH-AWV GALL-ANT] told Army Radio. Gallant said he would not speculate on the likelihood of such an attack, but he noted that if Iran could “shoot in one direction [at Saudi Arabia] from hundreds of kilometers away” it could also “shoot in another direction [at Israel] from hundreds of kilometers away. We are looking at what is happening around us,” he continued. Since May, Iran has been increasing its hostile activity in the region, including an unprecedented attack on September 14 on the Saudi oil fields that involved the coordination of dozens of projectiles, missiles and drones, Gallant explained. “Iran is not a theoretical enemy,” Gallant said, explaining that its regime has repeatedly threatened to destroy Israel. Iranian threats against Israel should be taken very seriously, said Gallant, who explained that the attack on Saudi Arabia relied on low flying projectiles that went undetected and represented a new phase of warfare in the region. Israel is not Saudi Arabia, and its military is capable of handling such an attack, but it is important to be alert and prepared, he said.

Second, today, under the Sign category of WARS & RUMOURS OF WARS — According to the BBC, Turkey has boosted its forces on the Syrian border ahead of a long-threatened incursion that could target Kurdish-led forces allied to the US. Troops would cross into Syria “shortly”, a presidential aide said. Turkey wants to create a “safe zone” cleared of a Kurdish militia that will also house some of Turkey’s 3.6 million Syrian refugees. President Donald Trump has withdrawn US troops in the area in a controversial move condemned at home and abroad. The Kurds were key US allies in defeating the jihadist group Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria. But Turkey regards the Kurdish militia that dominates the US-allied Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) as a terrorist group. The US pullout was seen as paving the way for an offensive.

Third, today, under the Sign category of WARS & RUMOURS OF WARS — According to the AFP, European members of the UN Security Council called for the strict enforcement of international sanctions against North Korea, after a closed door meeting prompted by Pyongyang’s latest missile test. “International sanctions must remain in place and be fully and strictly enforced,” they said in a statement read by French ambassador Nicolas Riviere [RIV-EE-YAIR]. Joining France in the statement was Belgium, Germany, Poland and Britain as well as Estonia. North Korea’s ambassador to the United Nations, Kim Song, assailed the Europeans for doing Washington’s bidding in seeking the Security Council meeting. “The United States and its followers should bear in mind that if they raise the issue of our self-defensive measures at the UN Security Council meeting in this moment, it will further (increase) our desire to defend our sovereignty,” he said.

Now, it’s time for Prophecy Bootcamp.

Prophecy Bootcamp is where we deal with the basics of prophecy, the Second Coming of Christ, and what will happen in the future according to the Bible. Our aim here is not to make predictions but to help you get prepared by understanding how things will unfold in the end times.

Our topic for today is titled “Prophecies Fulfilled in the Life of Christ” (Part 2)” from Tim LaHaye and Ed Hindson’s book “The Essential Guide to Bible Prophecy.”

Let’s look at 5 more examples of messianic prophecy in the Old Testament:

Prophecy: Isaiah 7:14 – “The Virgin shall conceive.”
Subject: born of a virgin
Fulfillment: Matthew 1:23 – “The virgin shall be with child.”

Prophecy: Psalm 2:7 – “You are My Son.”
Subject: declared the Son of God
Fulfillment: Matthew 3:17 – “This is My beloved Son.”

Prophecy: Isaiah 53:3 – “He is despised and rejected.”
Subject: rejected by His own
Fulfillment: John 1:11 – “His own did not receive Him.”

Prophecy: Psalm 41:9 – “my own familiar friend…against me”
Subject: betrayed by a friend
Fulfillment: Matthew 26:50 – “Friend, why have you come?”

Prophecy: Zechariah 12:10 – “on Me whom they pierced”
Subject: death by crucifixion
Fulfillment: Matthew 27:23 – “Let Him be crucified!”

Lord willing, we will continue looking at “Prophecies Fulfilled in the Life of Christ” in our next podcast.

In closing, let’s consider what God wants you and I to do in light of His Second Coming.

Jesus Christ said in Luke 19:13 to “Occupy till I come.” In light of that, we are continuing our journey through the book, “Coming Events and Present Duties,” by J.C. Ryle. It is a collection of what he called “prophetic tracts” that focus on the believer’s duty in light of the signs which point to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

This section is titled, “What Time Is It?” (Part 12). J.C. Ryle writes:

2. What shall we say to the surprising interest taken in the Jewish nation in these latter days? Seventy years ago to be a Jew was a taunt, and a bye-word, and a proverb. No man cared for the souls of the children of Abraham. They were a people despised, and scorned, and trampled under foot. It might truly have been said, “This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.” But now the feeling is completely changed. The spiritual interests of Jews are a subject of deep concern to true Christians. The civil rights of Jews are cared for even to an extreme. The very city of Jerusalem has weight in the councils of kings. Yet what saith the Scripture? “Thou shalt arise and have mercy upon Zion, for the time to favour her, yea the set time is come. For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof. So the heathen shall fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory. When the Lord shall build up Zion, He shall appear in His glory.”

If the Lord tarries His Coming and we live, we will continue looking at this topic in our next broadcast/podcast.

Remember the words of the Lord in Matthew 24:42: “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.” Matthew 24:44 says, “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”

If you are not ready for the Return of Jesus Christ, may I encourage you to get ready today by receiving Him as your Savior. Here is how:

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…” Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here is the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9-13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Keep looking up for your redemption draweth nigh. Let us join in the prayer of John the Revelator — “Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” God bless you.

Prophecies Fulfilled in the Life of Christ, Part 1 (The Prophet Daniel’s Report #651)

My name is Daniel Whyte III here to remind you that Jesus Christ is coming back soon and that you need to be prepared. This broadcast is not about predictions, nor is it about setting dates as some foolishly have done, however it is all about preparation.

First, today, let’s look at some Signs of His Coming in the news.

The disciples asked Jesus in Matthew 24:3, “What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” Jesus Christ gave them (and us) clear signs that show us when we can begin to expect to see the Coming of the Lord and the end of the world. Looking at world events through the lens of the Word of God, let’s look at some headlines from today’s news that point to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

First, today, under the Sign category of TURMOIL IN THE MIDDLE EAST — According to Israel National News, a senior Iranian commander is again threatening Israel, warning that “if Israel makes a strategic mistake, it has to collect bits and pieces of Tel Aviv from the lower depths of the Mediterranean Sea.” Abbas Nilforoushan, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Deputy Commander for Operations, made the comments in an interview with Tasnim news agency. “Iranian armed forces do not play according to the rules in their strategic depth which is as wide as West Asia,” said the commander, claiming that in the area of military power, Iran has reached a balance of power with its enemies. Asked about his views on threats Israel can pose against Iran, Nilforoushan replied, “Israel is not in a position to threaten Iran. Iran has encircled Israel from all four sides.” He asserted that after a conflict with Iran, “Nothing will be left of Israel.” Nilforoushan explained that Israel’s military doctrine is based on “striking resistance forces before they can be turned into a threat and start an all-out war because they cannot afford being involved in a full-fledged war. No country can stand up to the Islamic Republic. Tehran’s enemies know that the they will not be in control of ending a war they might start against Iran. If the enemies could have started a war against Iran, they would have done it,” he claimed.

Second, today, under the Sign category of THE RISE OF THE KINGS OF THE EAST — According to Space Daily, China will likely unveil a new supersonic drone and intercontinental ballistic missiles at a military parade marking 70 years of Communist Party rule, according to Paris-based researchers. The procession will display the army’s “unprecedented” conventional and nuclear ballistic capabilities. The People’s Liberation Army has tried to keep its plans under wraps — even moving tanks in the dead of night during dress rehearsals. The Chinese defence ministry says 15,000 troops will march next week, and 580 pieces of military hardware will be displayed — as well as more than 160 aircraft. Beijing has denied the procession will be an aggressive display of power, but the French report said the show of force will demonstrate the “quantitative and qualitative modernisation” of China’s ballistic arsenal.

Third, today, under the Sign category of WARS & RUMOURS OF WARS — According to The Jerusalem Post, US-Iranian tensions ratcheted up as Tehran warned that the Middle East was one blunder away from war, just hours after the Trump administration announced it had imposed a new round of sanctions against the Islamic republic. “Our region is on the edge of collapse, as a single blunder can fuel a big fire,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told the United Nations General Assembly. “We do not tolerate the interference of outsiders. We shall respond decisively to any transgression or violation of our security and territorial integrity.” As Rouhani began his speech, Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon slowly got up out of his seat, straightened his suit jacket and walked out of the room. “Israel will not respect the world’s number one exporter of terrorism,” Danon later said. “Rouhani takes advantage of the UN stage to distract and blind the international community from his regime’s aggression. World leaders need to issue a clear ultimatum to Rouhani: dismantle the nuclear program or we will bring more sanctions to bring the collapse of the regime.”

Now, it’s time for Prophecy Bootcamp.

Prophecy Bootcamp is where we deal with the basics of prophecy, the Second Coming of Christ, and what will happen in the future according to the Bible. Our aim here is not to make predictions but to help you get prepared by understanding how things will unfold in the end times.

Our topic for today is titled “Prophecies Fulfilled in the Life of Christ” (Part 1)” from Tim LaHaye and Ed Hindson’s book “The Essential Guide to Bible Prophecy.”

The Old Testament is filled with prophecies about the human race, the nation of Israel, and future events in general. And the most important prophecies are those that point to the coming of Christ. These are not merely isolated “proof texts”; the whole of the Old Testament points the way to a coming future Messiah.

Even before the time of Jesus, the Jews recognized that many of these predictions were messianic. Here are ten examples:

Prophecy: Genesis 3:15 – “her Seed”
Subject: seed of a woman
Fulfillment: Galatians 4:4 – “born of a woman”

Prophecy: Genesis 12:3 – “All the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Subject: descendant of Abraham
Fulfillment: Matthew 1:1 – “the Son of Abraham”

Prophecy: Genesis 49:10 – “The scepter shall not depart from Judah.”
Subject: tribe of Judah
Fulfillment: Luke 3:33 – “the son of Judah”

Prophecy: Isaiah 9:7 – “upon the throne of David”
Subject: heir of David
Fulfillment: Luke 1:32 – “the throne of His father David”

Prophecy: Micah 5:2 – “Bethlehem…out of you shall come…the One to be Ruler in Israel.”
Subject: born in Bethlehem
Fulfillment: Luke 2:4-7 – the city of David, which is called Bethlehem…she brought forth her firstborn Son”

Lord willing, we will continue looking at “Prophecies Fulfilled in the Life of Christ” in our next podcast.

In closing, let’s consider what God wants you and I to do in light of His Second Coming.

Jesus Christ said in Luke 19:13 to “Occupy till I come.” In light of that, we are continuing our journey through the book, “Coming Events and Present Duties,” by J.C. Ryle. It is a collection of what he called “prophetic tracts” that focus on the believer’s duty in light of the signs which point to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

This section is titled, “What Time Is It?” (Part 11). J.C. Ryle writes:

I am no prophet, and may easily be mistaken. I may die, and you may die, before Christ comes, and the day dawns. But I appeal to every thinking man whether there are not “signs of the times” which deserve serious attention. I ask him to notice the things going on in the world, and to consider well what they are intended to teach.

Does any reader ask what I mean by “signs of the times”? Let him weigh well the six following points, and he will see what I mean.

1. What shall we say to the missions to the heathen which have been set on foot in these latter days? Seventy years ago the Protestant Churches seemed thoroughly asleep on the subject of missions. There was hardly a single missionary sent forth to the heathen from the whole of Great Britain. The idea of preaching the Gospel to savages and idolaters was ridiculed. The first promoters of missions were treated coldly by many who ought to have known better. But now the feeling is completely changed. We are employing hundreds of missionaries in every quarter of the globe. And what saith the Scripture, “The Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”

If the Lord tarries His Coming and we live, we will continue looking at this topic in our next broadcast/podcast.

Messianic Prophecy, Part 1; Breaking Prophecy News (The Prophet Daniel’s Report #649)

First, today, under the Sign category of TURMOIL IN THE MIDDLE EAST — According to Israel National News, Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas said on Wednesday he would be against a new Israeli government led by Binyamin Netanyahu. “Our position: against Netanyahu,” Abbas said during a visit to Oslo when questioned over his preferences for a new Israeli government. The comments came after Netanyahu and Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz remained deadlocked as votes in Tuesday’s election were tallied. Earlier, the PA’s “foreign minister” said they were prepared to engage in dialogue with any future Israeli leader. “Whoever will be able to form a government, we are ready to sit with him or her in order to restart the negotiations,” Riyad al-Maliki told reporters. The peace process between Israel and the PA has been frozen since 2014, when Abbas breached conditions of talks that were ongoing at the time by unilaterally joining international treaties and conventions. While the PA chairman claims he is ready to sit down for peace talks, he has continuously rejected Netanyahu’s call to sit down for peace negotiations, and has instead chosen to impose preconditions on talks.

Israel conflict with Hamas reaching ‘tipping point’ (Second Coming Watch Update #887)

This is Daniel Whyte III with the Second Coming Watch Update. This is update #887. Let’s take a quick look at today’s prophecy-related headlines which point towards the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and the end of the world as we know it.

First, under the Sign category of TURMOIL IN THE MIDDLE EAST — According to Israel National News, Khalil al-Hayya, a member of Hamas’ political bureau and one of the group’s senior leaders in Gaza, warned that the ‘Israeli occupation’ will pay a very high price if it attacks Gaza. Al-Hayya noted that the statements made in Israel regarding an Israeli military operation in the Gaza Strip are part of the election campaign and do not scare the Palestinian ‘resistance organizations’. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told Channel 13 News that ‘if Hamas does not take control of [Gaza], there will be no option other than to act systematically. Maybe that means a war. I look the residents of the south in the eye, and I understand their distress.’ Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz said last Sunday that Israel’s conflict with the terrorist organizations in Gaza is close to reaching the tipping point and warned that in the next campaign “it is clear that the top leaders of the terrorist organizations will be wiped out and its force destroyed.
