  1. To prove "again" my very refined End Times, mind-bending 9/11,10/12 discovery in Daniel, there are 4 chapters that explains the US and the current Middle East situation since 2003 when we first invaded Iraq, (7,8,11,12) and there are 4 quarters of the vision (2 in chapter 8 and 2 in chapter 11) that explains it, and 4 Kings or "Presidents" during that same time-span. (4 heads of Dan 7:6) That's 4+4+4 =12, right? So not only does this show everything in perfect chronological order but its also has the perfect FOUNDATION! Time to start DIVIDING Boys and Girls in the only two places where Daniel was told to shut anything up, the vision of chapter 8 (V 26) and the "un-dividing" of the last 4 chapters that Daniel (which was originally just two longer ones.) purposefully divided to shut up the Words as Daniel 12:4 indicates.

  2. blessings on your ministry. I must remind everyone…Even though it is prophecy coming to fulfillment…it doesn't mean we should not pray!!!!! All things are possible with God…the salvation of souls is paramount…those that know the Lord must help those that do not…their witness must BE LARGE. We MUST testify in deeds first…then when words are necessary…speak out. WE must pray, intercede, supplicate, fast and keep watch. This is our main work besides living holy lives…loving God and neighbor.

  3. it seems more than ever God is showing me my own lack of love for others and my own need for peace in the Lord. Yes like you say, we are too connected to the things of this world…and it does way us down… We seek the things of the world to make us happy and sooth us and they cannot…these things are superfluous like vapor and their pleasures disappear quickly. We should be lifted up, our countenance should be joyful…as a witness to others…but sadly we get depressed easily…We must live in the world but not be of it…be detached from it and attached to Jesus alone.

    " CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD,AND BE SAVED."…………….repeat a few times…
    this is such a powerful and beautiful song…the song is called " here i am to worship "…

  5. There's precedent for the belief that God makes his children uncomfortable when it's getting time for them to leave. Think about the Israelite's in Egypt with the new Pharaoh when Moses was trying to convince them that they were going to leave Egypt. Think about the eagle, who removes the soft cushion from the nest of her young when they must learn to fly. Think about just before WWII, when the Jewish people were comfortable, even thriving in Germany. As you said, "The world is not our home."

  6. I wish I could go to a Church like this, I've bounced around I'm looking for encouragement. I've struggled with substance abuse for so many years and need support from brothers and sisters in Christ. God bless you and yours JD.

  7. Pastor JD, this was so encouraging and right on target!! I consider myself a member of your online church and tune in weekly for the M-E PU. I'm so thankful for you and this ministry. Keep speaking the truth!! God bless you!!

  8. luke21:34 "¶And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares."
    35 "For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth."
    36 "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."

    read 36 again…

  9. Do not agree with 1:37 There will be this strong deception That God himself will send because they rejected the truth, I literally think you need to back that up with some verses or correct this statement JD. GOD does not decieve people he loves them.
    I would agree with God allows the deciever to have the freedom to deceive but in all the confusion he God is still in control.

  10. I so agree, the disenchantment of this world keeps us like Abraham, who never got his stakes buried too deeply in this old world. “For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope.” -Romans 8:20

  11. I believe the confusion over what is happening in Syria lies around the misconception that there are good guys and bad guys in this war. That's a broad generalization that we use to determine which side we support. The truth is that there are no good guys, only bad guys and not-so-bad guys. What I mean by this is that by default as Christians we support Israel for obvious reasons, but unfortunately the Israelis are human beings and they have been supporting some "not-so-bad" guys in Syria. The so-called moderate rebels who were supposed to overthrow Assad, but failed because they turned out to be a bunch of thugs and murderers who turned the Syrian people against themselves when they carried out barbarous acts in the name of Islam.

    Of course the Syrian government have been equally bad in the sense that they have just ruthlessly bombed Syrian cities in their campaign to destroy these Islamic rebels. I don't believe Assad used chemical weapons but that doesn't mean he hasn't killed a lot of people. The other side (the "not so bad guys") DID use chemical weapons, but in a sneaky way to try and frame Assad and get us dopey Westerners riled up enough to come in on their side of the war. But nobody is fooled by this. Trump certainly isn't but unfortunately he hasn't helped things by carrying out these lame cruise missile attacks that don't really achieve anything except make America look weak and ineffective in the face of evil. I'm pretty sure that the US military have been working with Russia to minimize the effect of these attacks, but only because Trump wants to undermine the deep state's march to war. But I don't think he can keep doing that forever. I believe that next week the war will begin for real. Trump can't keep dancing around this situation pretending he's actually at war with Syria when all he did was bomb some empty buildings, and more than half of the cruise missiles got shot down anyway.

    But the way I get insight on this whole situation is that I read Ezekiel 38 where God says that he is against Gog (the bad guys – the side represented by Russia, Iran and Syria etc) but he nevertheless put a hook in Gog's jaw and dragged him into Syria (and ultimately into Israel itself) for His own name's sake. Why? Not because Israel have been the good guys in all of this, but because God put His name on Israel, and He won't allow His name to be defamed. Israel will be chastened during the coming war, but Gog will be destroyed. That's the difference. As the war progresses, it will be clear that God is good and just and will punish those who deserve punishment. He will also rescue those who call on His name. That's how God is. He is Good, He is Just and He is Merciful. We get the English name God from the derivation of "good". That is the difference between us and God. We so often fall short in our ways and end up in these crazy wars, but God will bring an end to this war and glorify His name. That's the message of Ezekiel 38.

    17 “‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: You are the one I spoke of in former days by my servants the prophets of Israel. At that time they prophesied for years that I would bring you against them. 18 This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign Lord. 19 In my zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. 20 The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground. 21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign Lord. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22 I will execute judgment on him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. 23 And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord.’

  12. How awesome is it that out of all the people that have lived, God chose the ones here now to be the ones to witness endtime prophecy fulfilled! I am excited to go home, finally! Maranatha!
