Bible Prophecy Update – JD Farag – February 10th, 2019

let’s get to our prophecy update if you’re able to stay we certainly encourage you to do so if you have to leave no problem we understand God bless you for today’s update I I actually had some difficulty because so much is happening so fast I usually have a pretty good idea of the direction the Lord’s leading me by about Friday but Friday came and went and I was so kind of overwhelmed with man this is happening I should talk about that man that that’s happening I should talk about that and then I just really sought the Lord and early Saturday morning I sensed that he would have me to talk about the prophetic significance of what’s being dubbed an historic visit by the Pope to the United Arab Emirates did you hear about this or see some of the coverage on this it wasn’t just historic I would argue it was prophetic and I say that because it’s the first visit by a Pope to the Arab Gulf state in history the Pope called it quote a new page in the history of relations between religions doesn’t that just sound so nice the relations between religious while there he delivered a homily to an estimated 135,000 in attendance which included interesting over 4,000 Muslims in the capital city of Abu Dhabi what’s interesting is on Monday and you would be hard-pressed I had to do quite a bit of research to come up with the text of this and any kind of mention of this but on Monday the Pope and the grand Imam of us hada signed a declaration calling for peace in the presence of a global audience this global audience in attendance at this signing ceremony included religious leaders from Christianity better understood as Catholicism Islam and Judaism as well as other faiths you have to understand that and you’ll forgive the the car reference again but the big three the big three are Christianity Islam and Judaism and here’s how it works in Jerusalem Friday is Aslam Saturday Shabbat is Judaism and Sunday is Christianity the three major the big three major religions all worship in Jerusalem today Friday Saturday and Sunday listen to this quote from the Pope in regards to this signing I’m quoting if we believers are not able to shake hands embrace one another kiss one another and even pray our faith will be defeated close goal in addition to this signing the Pope also had a private meeting with Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan who later tweeted and I quote we discussed enhancing cooperation consolidating dialogue tolerance human listen very carefully to this word you’ve seen it before you’ve heard it before we’ve talked about it before coexistence coexist and important initiatives to achieve peace stability security peace of security and development for peoples and societies okay there are some very serious problems with all of this specifically this quest for the coexistence of Christianity Islam and Judaism chief amongst them is that of the coming one-world religion that the book of Revelation tells us will come under the reign of the Antichrist during the seven-year tribulation a one-world religion a one world economy and a one world government perhaps that’s a topic for another time we have again talked about that before but what I really sense the Lord would have me to address today is another very serious problem and it’s that many a Christian has bought into the from the father of lies that Christians and Muslims worship the same God here’s the truth Christians and Muslims do not and cannot worship the same God and you might be surprised to know this but according to the Muslim Quran they cannot even coexist listen to these verses from the Quran and by the way let me hasten to say that Islam is a false religion and Muhammad is a false prophet and Allah is a false god quran chapter 5 verse 54 all believers take not Jews and Christians as friends they are friends of each other those of you who make them his friends is one of them God does not guide an unjust people could on when you meet the unbelievers they depends on the the translation from the Arabic but some of the qur’an’s render it the people of the book that’s the Jews and the Christians the Jews are the Old Covenant the Christians the New Covenant the book the Bible the infidel the unbelievers smite their necks behead them then when you have made wide slaughter among them tie fast the bonds and set them free either by grace or ransom until the war lays down its burdens good on the only reward of those who make war upon Allah and is messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off or will be expelled out of the land this is the Quran and by the way I just read painfully so it gives me no pleasure to read these satanic verses and that’s what they are but I’m telling you that this is Islam these three verses in the Quran are three of what one has counted to be over 120 verses that command the true Muslim to kill the Christian and the Jew don’t take my word for it be it Berean don’t take anybody’s word for it be a Berean and search the Scriptures and see if what I am Telling You here today is the truth or not you’ll forgive the bluntness with which I say this but either Jesus is who he says he is or he is the liar of liars I can’t even it’s hard to let those words come from my lips listen to the words from the Savior himself john he says I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the Father except through me that’s pretty exclusive isn’t it the road is pretty narrow isn’t it I’m sorry if I’m yelling I feel better this week I didn’t feel so good last week I didn’t you know a lot of people said thank you for not yelling I said well enjoy it while it lasts because I’m sorry Jesus did not say that he is a truth a way a life now the truth the truth here’s a question how can people be so gullible as to believe that the world’s religions can coexist here’s an answer when one rejects the truth the truth they will believe the lie and as such they’ll be condemned and perish against the will of a loving God who does not want anyone to perish but everyone to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ listen to what Paul wrote to the church in Thessalonica in his second epistle chapter 2 verses 9 through 12 he says the coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan with all power signs and lying wonders and with all listen unrighteous deception among those who perish why because they did not receive the love of the truth that they might be saved and for this reason God will send them strong delusion another translation renders that a powerful illusion deception that they should believe the lie that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness but God but God in John through 18 so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life for God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through him might be saved he who believes in Him is not condemned but he who does not believe can I say the truth but instead has believed the lie is condemned already because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God the name the name the name why do I highlight and emphasize that because Allah is the name you know what’s really sad if you got an Arabic Bible and you could read Arabic the word God is translated Allah in other words God the title not the name that’s the title so very subtly very satanic Lee it has deceived people into believing that Allah is synonymous with God when I was growing up as a little boy my mom innocently used to pronounce what I believe is the Arabic version of the ironic blessing in numbers chapter 6 the Lord bless you and keep you and make his face to shine upon you and give you peace and God tells Moses to command Aaron to pronounce this blessing upon them and then he says this I have put my name name upon them we talked about this and again will maybe talk about this again yet future but she would pronounce this blessing of God and bless her heart she didn’t know any better but she would say in Arabic is some a Lolich the name of Allah she thought was God the name of God be upon you it’s the highest blessing you can pronounce on anyone the name of God be upon you because the name of God is the nature of God say so I changed it she’s with the Lord now been many many years since she went on to be of the Lord but I changed it to is Samia siwalik the name of Jesus be upon you so why do I mention that because Allah is not the same as Jehovah we cannot join hands with someone embrace someone even pray with someone who doesn’t worship true and living God there are those who argue that well the Pope is just trying to build bridges okay bill bridges not walls ah why don’t I do that I shouldn’t have gone there sorry couldn’t help myself forgive me here’s where I’m going with all this instead of coexisting with the Muslim were to be reaching out to the Muslim with the good news of salvation for the Muslim what if I told you that Muslims in the Middle East today by the multitudes are seeking Jesus and finding Jesus by the multitudes you know I I’m sorry I I don’t say this to shame us if I do maybe it’s a sanctified shaming and I include myself in that sanctified shame II but they’ll put us to shame their worship services I mean when you see I realized that we’re not likely to hear about this on our news feeds but the truth of the matter is Muslims are coming out of Islam and they’re coming to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ on Monday I read a most interesting article published in the Christian Post about Syrian Muslims who are finding Jesus after witnessing the brutality of Islamic groups like Isis Syria in Syria you know this is the thing when we talk about the prophetic significance of Syria and Isaiah 17 I think one of the things that’s lost is that these are people man these are fathers and mothers and sisters and brothers and uncles and auntie’s and these are people these are my people I’ll tell you’ve never been so humbled as to watch a former Muslim worshipper war I was thinking in Isaiah 19 another prophecy not about Syria but about Egypt God calls the Egyptians who by the way come to Christ in the end he calls the Egyptians my people the Egyptians God loves the Muslim Jesus died for the Syrian for the Egyptian for the Arab people he loves to our people so in this story published in the Christian Post they talk about a guy by the name of phut had Jesse he’s 23 years old he works as a mechanic and he converted to Christianity late last year he was jailed by Isis for six months in early 2016 after the militants discovered he didn’t know the basics of Islam during his time in captivity he was tortured and forced to read the Quran he said listen to this it didn’t take me long to discover that Christianity was the religion I was searching for I don’t want to be a Muslim anymore their God is not my god it’s testimonies like this from fahad Jesse manned the multitudes like him that are one of the main reasons we do these updates and end with the gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ by the way in the book of Acts we’re told that there is no other name given among men whereby we must be saved the name of Jesus Jesus Jesus by the way this will be one of the last by the ways I know I’ve got a lot of bio by the ways here I found online that text of the agreement that was signed by the Pope calling for peace and it was kind of a tough read but I did a search and I searched the name Jesus in that document and not one time did I find the name of Jesus the Prince of Peace the King of Kings the Lord of lords mentioned even one time have you ever noticed I’m gonna just indulge me for just a moment but I’ve got to share this have you ever noticed how it is that nobody ever takes the name of Allah or Mohammed in vain what was the last time you saw somebody stubbed their toe or you know bang their thumb with a hammer go Oh Buddha no I’m sorry did you imagine Oh Mohammed no it’s always the name of Jesus why because Jesus is God that’s why that’s why the next time I used to be well used to be a lot of things God is so gracious isn’t he but I used to be kind of militant when somebody would take the name of my Jesus in vain like that and I would just I would go Palestinian on him it never worked but one day I I asked someone who had taken the name of my Jesus in vain I said why do you take Jesus’s name in vain why don’t you be an equal-opportunity blasphemer and take Buddha and Muhammad let’s be all-inclusive let’s kind of coexist in this whole deal while we’re at it right they never used Jesus’s name again in my presence at least God I’m thinking what is the gospel the gospel is the good news that Jesus Christ came he was crucified he was buried and he rose again on the third day and he’s coming back one day good news your debt has been paid in full you’re free to go good news that’s what the word gospel means what debt oh you didn’t know yeah well maybe you need to know the bad news first what you hate him when somebody comes up to you and says hey I got good news and I got bad news what do you want to hear first to which I like to respond get thee behind me Satan I do not want any patents I’ll take the good news but no sometimes we need the bad news first because the batter the bad news is the gooder the good news will be I know that’s not proper English please don’t email me the bad news is we’ve all been sentenced to death for all eternity because of our sin that’s the bad news and the good news is is that Jesus paid yours and my death penalty in our stead with his blood shed that’s the good news it’s also why we do the ABCs of salvation at the end of our updates not to insult anyone’s intelligence rather to provide a simple childlike explanation of how to be saved I know for me 37 years ago now it had to be simple if it were complicated I wonder whether I would have come to Christ or not first of all I because of my lifestyle had damaged a lot of my brain from all the drugs and the drinking and the partying when I got saved my brain was so damaged I could not understand I could not form an intelligible sentence that’s how brain-damaged I was in fact when I went out and bought a Bible I could not no way understand that King James so I bought a good news Bible that had a limited vocabulary in plain English and even that was a stretch for me and a challenge for me it was those are some big words you know in there it has to be simple it has to be easy before I do the ABCs and we’ll bring it to a close and I appreciate your patience I want to share with you an email that I received from an online member in South Africa by the name of Liz Elle she says I am an art teacher and work with kids from the age of 11 to 18 my husband and I belonged to the Gideons and we have been serving for 14 years I love the ABCs of salvation and started to use it on Friday we had a terrible tragedy in our area if you heard about this the bridge or walkway at a local high school collapsed and fell on some kids four of them lost their lives they were stuck under a big piece of concrete when I heard the news I cried like a baby I know so many children in that skull we also did not get the opportunity to bring Bibles to those kids I prayed we all prayed but then I realized again how short life is and that now more than ever is a time to take action today Monday which was this last Monday the 4th we went to another school and for the first time I shared the ABCs of salvation to the entire group thank you for the simple ABC’s we still have to go to the school where the tragedy happened please pray with us please also pray for the children and parents of that school as many as 30 kids were injured and about 18 of them are still critical this is in South Africa please pray as the Lord puts that on your heart what are the ABCs of salvation the a is for admit or acknowledge that you sinned against God and that you need the Savior Romans says that there is no one righteous not even one you know the common answer you get when you ask somebody or try to share the gospel with somebody the common response is well I’m a good person and you can say to them when they respond like that I’m sure you are I’m sure you’re a good person and you have a good heart but you can never be good enough there is no one that is righteous meeting that perfect standard of God’s righteousness we were all born sinners which is why we must be born again to enter the kingdom of heaven Romans says all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God as we talked about the last couple of weeks this is actually an archery term so the archer would shoot the arrow at the bull’s eye and if they missed the bullseye they fell short they sinned they fell short that’s what the word sin actually means and we’ve all sinned we’ve all fallen short we’ve all missed the mark of God’s perfect standard Romans I love this verse because it packages the Afra mentioned bad news first then offers the good news the bad news the wages of sin is death that’s the death penalty that’s the bad news and that is bad news but here’s the good news the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord Ephesians and 9 says for by grace you are saved through faith it is the gift of God not of works where you earn it lest you boast about it I heard someone humorously quipped that if we could get to heaven by earning our way there and it wouldn’t be heaven anymore because could you imagine you’re up there hey you know what I did to get here well you know that’s nothing you what I did that’s the other place I think that they will go to not heaven no one’s gonna boast nobody’s going to be able to say this is what I did it’s not anything I do it’s what he’s already done I owed a debt I could not pay as we sing he paid a debt he did not owe and that is the good news now think about this as a gift you don’t pay for a gift right if you have to pay for it then it’s no longer a gift and what do we know to be true about gifts again I hope this is not an oversimplification I do not intend in any way to insult anybody’s intelligence but a gift is given and a gift is received but somebody had to pay for that gift right Jesus paid for that in full and it cost him everything and he offers this gift of eternal life free oh come on there’s no such thing as a free lunch I don’t know about a free lunch but there is such a thing as the free gift of eternal life in Christ Jesus that’s the a here’s the B the B is for believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord Romans and 10 says if you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead listen to the specificity of this you will will be saved not shall even shall is not definite will is you know in covenants the parties shall know the jury’s out on whether or not the parties shall because if they do not then they break the covenant no it’s not shall its will its will and lastly the c is for call upon the name of the Lord or as Romans and 10 also says if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved for it is with your heart that you believe and are justified and it is with your mouth you confess and are saved and lastly I like to see this as this is how you seal the deal this is what you do to seal the deal and I want you to notice this word again all all have sinned yeah but all who call upon the name of the Lord will will be saved one last thing if you’re here today and I make no assumptions I only see the outward appearance God sees the heart God knows every heart of everyone and by the way the outward appearance that I see you all look mahvelous just so you know but God sees your heart and God knows your heart if you have never called upon the name of the Lord I am pleading with you to not put off the most important decision in your life for eternal life give me one more second here you might be watching online from somewhere in the Middle East I know we have a lot of views from the Middle East Saudi Arabia and Syria even Iraq Egypt Jordan Israel even and maybe you’re a Muslim and what you heard today really made sense and God really spoke to your heart I would implore you and encourage you even plead with you to call upon the name of Jesus Jesus believing in your heart acknowledging your sin trusting in him to be saved once y’all still thank you again for your patience let’s pray loving Heavenly Father how could we ever thank you enough for the free gift of eternal life for the good news of salvation and that your return draws ever so near lord I pray for anyone who might be here or watching this somewhere that has never called upon you or is unsure of where they stand with you that today now it would be settled ‘lord maybe for somebody that has wandered back slid got caught up in the cares and the affairs of this life as seductive as they are lord I pray that today would be that day that you would fill them afresh with the Holy Spirit baptize them anew as they draw near to you that you would draw near to them and that they would never look back surely only you satiate that hunger and thirst that we have Lord for anyone who might be discouraged and just battle where he just really going through some stuff now you know all about it would you just encourage and strengthen their hearts or thank you in Jesus name Amen you you
