Welcome to The Prophet Daniel’s Report. This is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society, here to remind you that Jesus Christ is coming back soon and that you need to be prepared. This broadcast is not about predictions, 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 then went on to give 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.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Prospects of Progress in Mideast Peace Talks Are ‘Not Good’. According to Reuters, the prime minister told his cabinet in public remarks that “As things stand now, according to what happened over the past few days — when the Palestinians refused even to discuss Israel’s security needs with us — the signs are not particularly good.” He went on to say that he still hoped the Palestinians would “come to their senses and continue the talks so that we can move on to real negotiations.”

Psalm 122:6 says, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.”

A Report says that U.S. Bunker-buster Bombs Are ‘Not Powerful Enough’ Against Iran. According to the AFP, the US military has concluded that its largest conventional bomb is not capable of destroying Iran’s most heavily fortified underground facilities suspected to be used for building nuclear weapons. Citing unnamed US officials, the Wall Street Journal said the military was stepping up efforts to make it more powerful. The 13.6-ton “bunker-buster” bomb, known as the Massive Ordnance Penetrator, was specifically designed to take out the hardened fortifications built by Iran and North Korea, Friday’s report said.

The Bible says in Mark 13:7, “And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.”

Iran vows to stop “some” oil sales as nuclear inspectors visit the country. According to Reuters, Iran vowed to stop oil exports soon to “some” countries but postponed a parliamentary debate on a proposed halt to crude sales to the European Union. The Islamic Republic declared itself optimistic about a visit by U.N. nuclear experts but also warned the inspectors to be “professional” or see Tehran reducing cooperation with the world body on atomic matters.

Now, it’s time for Prophecy Bootcamp.

Prophecy Bootcamp is where we deal with the basics of prophecy 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.

We are at part 5 of our series titled “The Plan of the Rapture” from John MacArthur’s book titled, The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our bootcamp subject for today is titled “Why Our Resurrection is Secured”. On this subject, MacArthur writes the following:
The basis for the hope that the Thessalonians had is in verse 14 of I Thessalonians chapter 4 which says, “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.” If Jesus’ body went into repose in the grave and He arose, you can believe that all those who sleep in Jesus will return with Him. You see, it is the resurrection of Christ that guarantees our resurrection.

In John 14:19, Jesus said, “because I live, ye shall live also.”

And in II Timothy 1:10, Paul said that it is “Jesus Christ who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.”

So, Paul tells the Thessalonians, “If we believe that Jesus died and rose again — and we obviously do — then surely we know He will bring those who are asleep with Him when He comes.”

Verse 14 also tells us that when Jesus comes back to meet us in the air, He is going to bring with Him the spirits of those believers who have already died and have not yet received their glorified bodies. So, when the Lord returns in the Rapture, the spirits of all the dead saints of the Church Age will be with Him to get reunited with the glorified bodies coming out of their graves. Those who are asleep are coming back.

On our next Prophecy Bootcamp, we will address the topic of how “The Dead in Christ Will Arise First”

In closing, let’s consider what God wants you to do in light of His Second Coming.
Today, we are again looking at some things Dr. David Jeremiah encourages Christians to do in his book titled I Never Thought I’d See the Day. In these last days, he recommends that you do the following as it relates to Islamic Extremism in our world today

* Educate yourself on the difference between the Muslim faith and extreme Islam.
* Be ready to effectively share Jesus with a person of Muslim faith.
* Pray for the people of Iran. The nation may have defied God, but within that nation are Christians and potential Christians who are not enemies but brothers and sisters.
* Ask God for a special measure of grace to love your enemies.
* Be knowledgeable about any extreme religious sects in your community.

CLOSING PRAYER

Now, if you are listening to this broadcast and you do not know Jesus Christ as your saviour, God wants you to accept Jesus Christ before He returns. The Bible says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “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 whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Friend of mine, if you are willing to trust Christ as your Savior today, please pray with me the following prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Amen.

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.”

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.

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.

An Iranian Religious Leader has Stated that the Country is “Already Nuclear”. According to Israel National News, senior Iranian religious leader Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami said that Iran is already a nuclear state and that Americans have not realized that. Khatami was quoted by Channel 10 News as having said the following: “The United States says it will not allow Iran to be nuclear, but it is so blind that it hasn’t noticed that Iran has already become a nuclear state.” Khatami also addressed the EU’s embargo on Iranian oil imports, which was announced this week, and said that the Europeans decided to wait with the implementation of the sanctions until July because their economic situation is no better than Iran’s.

Bible Translators Are in Hot Water Because They Removed the Words ‘Father’ and ‘Son’ From the Trinity in Arabic and Turkish Translations. According to a report in the Yahoo! News Contributor Network, a controversy is brewing over three reputable Christian organizations whose efforts have ousted the words “Father” and “Son” from new Bibles and replaced them with other words. Wycliffe Bible Translators, Summer Institute of Linguistics and Frontiers are under fire for “producing Bibles that remove Father, Son and Son of God because these terms are offensive to Muslims.” Concerned Christian missionaries, Bible translators, pastors, and national church leaders have come together with a public petition to stop these organizations. They claim a public petition is their last recourse because meetings with these organizations’ leaders, staff resignations over this issue and criticism and appeals from native national Christians concerned about the translations “have failed to persuade these agencies to retain “Father” and “Son” in the text of all their translations.”

The Bible says in Proverbs 30:5-6: “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.”

A Crackdown on Hungary’s Churches has Been Averted For Now. According to One News Now, in June of last year the Parliament of Hungary passed what is considered one of the most oppressive religion laws in Europe. According to Joe Grieboski of The Institute on Religion & Public Policy, “The law would have automatically de-registered 348 of the 362 religions currently registered in Hungary leaving only 14 to operate.” He went on to say that, “The good news is that in their rush to pass the legislation, the Parliament violated the constitution currently in force on how laws are to be passed and the Constitutional Court found the law to be unconstitutional and struck it down.”

The Bible says in Acts 14:22 “that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.”

Prophecy Bootcamp is where we deal with the basics of prophecy 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.

We are at part 4 of our series titled “The Plan of the Rapture” from John MacArthur’s book titled, The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our bootcamp subject for today is titled “Does the Bible teach soul sleep?” On this subject, MacArthur writes the following:

When Paul refers to members of the Thessalonian church who had died as “them who are asleep,” is he saying that they just kind of go into never-never land and lose consciousness until the Rapture? No, not at all. The figure of sleep could never be pressed to establish the teaching of soul sleep or unconscious repose. Paul is not talking about the state of the soul, he’s talking about the state of the body.

When a believer dies, his soul goes into the presence of God, but his body goes into the dust to rest until resurrection. So, it’s the body that’s asleep, not the soul. To be asleep is to be out of communication with your environment — that’s what happens to the body when it dies. But the soul continues in its communication with the environment of God as it enters into His presence. At the Rapture, the body will be glorified and reconstructed, and will then be able to relate to its environment once again.

Incidentally, soul sleep is totally inconsistent with I Thessalonians 5:10 which says, Christ “died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.” Whether we’re awake or asleep, in biblical terms, we’re with Jesus.
On our next broadcast, we will continue this series by discussing “Why Our Resurrection is Secured”,

In closing, let’s consider what God wants you to do in light of His Second Coming.
Today, we are again looking at some things Dr. David Jeremiah encourages Christians to do in his book titled I Never Thought I’d See the Day. In these last days, he recommends that you do the following as it relates to the rise of “New Atheism” in our society.

* Be a student of the Word so that you can know how to defend your faith.
* Be knowledgeable about the New Atheism.
* Ask God to illuminate His Word in your life and in the lives of others.
* Pray for the salvation of those who deny God.
* Get involved in freedom for faith decisions in your community.
* Be under the teaching of the Word in church each week.

Welcome to The Prophet Daniel’s Report. This is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society, here to remind you that Jesus Christ is coming back soon and that you need to be prepared. This broadcast is not about predictions, 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 then went on to give 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.

The Palestinian Authority President has said the Israel-Palestinian exploratory peace talks are ‘over’. According to the BBC, Mahmoud Abbas told reporters that the exploratory talks with Israel on resuming full peace negotiations have concluded, without any progress. After a meeting with Jordan’s King Abdullah in Amman, he said he would discuss what to do next with the Arab League next week. Both Israel and the Palestinians have been under international pressure to resume talks on a two-state solution. They stalled in late 2010 in a dispute over Jewish settlement construction.

God says of Israel in Ezekiel 36:24, “I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.”

In a speech to the Knesset, Prime Minister Netanyahu has said the world remains silent while Iran and Hezbollah threaten to destroy Israel. According to YNet News, the prime minister said the following in a speech marking the upcoming International Holocaust Remembrance Day: “Seventy years have passed since the Holocaust, and many around the world still remain silent in the face of Iran’s threats to wipe Israel off the map, and many stay silent despite Hezbollah’s call for the destruction of Israel. International Holocaust Remembrance Day is the day on which the world needs to stand behind the words ‘no more.’ It’s not a slogan, but has a deep meaning. It is the day on which the world must unite to make sure certain weapons of mass destruction do not fall into the hands of dark regimes, headed by the Ayatollah’s regime in Iran.”

God says of Abraham’s descendants in Genesis 12:3, “I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

Muslim students in Indonesia have attacked Christian schools over an ‘anti-Islamic’ Facebook post. According to Asia News, a message posted on Facebook by a self-styled ‘anti-Islamic’ user provoked a negative reaction among extremist students who attacked two Catholic schools in Central Java. According to local sources, 25 extremists forced their way into Pangudi Luhur 1 Junior High School where they vandalized the school’s property. At the time, a group of students were involved in extracurricular activities. The school suffered damages including eight broken windows. On the same day, the Stela Duce 2 Catholic School was also attacked by young Islamic fundamentalists. This was followed by another attack against the St John Bosco Catholic High School.

Jesus Christ told his disciples in Matthew 5:11-12, “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.”

We are at part 3 of our series titled “The Plan of the Rapture” from John MacArthur’s book titled, The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our bootcamp subject for today is titled “The Correction of the Thessalonians”. This bootcamp subject is divided into three different parts which are: The Subject of the Correction, The Solution of the Correction and The Specifics of the Correction. We will be looking at each of these aspects of the Correction of the Thessalonians over the next few broadcasts. Today, we will start with “The Subject of the Correction.” MacArthur writes the following:

I Thessalonians 4:13 says, “But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.” Christians were dying and the Thessalonians were worried about them. So Paul writes them and says, “I don’t want you to be ignorant about these people who are dying. They are not going to be second-class citizens in heaven and they’re not even going to have to wait extra time for their resurrection. So don’t continue sorrowing and acting like pagans who have no hope.”

On our next broadcast, we will continue this series by answering the question, “Does the Bible teach soul sleep?”

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

Today, we are again looking at some things Dr. David Jeremiah encourages Christians to do in his book titled I Never Thought I’d See the Day. In these last days, he recommends that you do the following as it relates to the nation of Israel:

1. Read Genesis 12:1-3 and Deuteronomy 7:6-8.
2. Educate yourself on world news that impacts Israel.
3. Pray for our leaders in public office to support Israel.
4. Pray for “the peace of Jerusalem” as the Bible says in Psalm 122:6
5. Pray for the spiritual salvation of the Jewish people—the chosen people of God.
6. Use whatever means are available to influence those who establish national policies in Washington to support Israel—vote, write letters, and call your senators and representatives.
