      Thank you pastor Jd for the message

    • lynn hope

      God will provide, but we may continue to go through that on going trial. Think about believers in other countries that are living in persecution. Just keep trusting in Jesus no matter how dark. He is our hope.

      I have a hard time understanding king James so I stay away from it.

      I am Danish, and I can understand the KJV, and I would prefer it ANY time, even over the Danish Bible!

      First Day is Sunday as the 8th Day is a Holy Day and is Sunday. For the Days are from Evening at Sundown to Morning Sun-Up that is the First Day. Genesis 1:5
      Leviticus 23:7
      On the First Day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall not do any ordinary work. Cross Ref. Num. 28:18

      Gen 1:5
      And God Called the Light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And The EVENING and The Morning Were The FIRST Day.

      And How it was accomplished that Christ Rose the 3rd day and it was a Sunday, a Holy Day… and why these verses.

      Leviticus 23:35
      On the First Day Shall Be a Holy convocation; you Shall NOT do any ordinary work.

      Lev 23:36
      Seven days ye Shall Offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: On The Eighth Day Shall Be an Holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein. Cross Ref. Num. 29:35

      Lev 23:39
      Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD Seven days: on the First Day shall be a Sabbath, and on the Eighth Day Shall be a Sabbath.

      Numbers 29:35
      “On the Eighth Day you shall have a solemn assembly. You shall not do any ordinary work

      Neh 8:18
      Also day by day, from the first day unto the last day, he read in the book of the law of God. And they kept the feast seven days; and on the eighth day was a solemn assembly, according unto the manner.

      Romans 12:1
      I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship

      Hebrews 13:15
      Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name

      Philippians 2:17
      Even if I am to be poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrificial offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all.

      Hebrews 13:15-16
      Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

      Psalm 51:17
      The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise

      Ephesians 5:1-2
      Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God

      Psa 141:2
      Let my prayer be set forth Before thee as Incense; and The Lifting UP Of My Hands AS The EVENING Sacrifice. Cross Ref. Rev. 5:8, Rev. 8:3-4

      The Lord Jesus is Mighty and Holy and may he give Mercy to us all. 🕊️🙏

      One of Pastors JD’s best sermons ever!

    • Adriana Salerno

      Amen to what you said about reading different bibles. Raised Catholic I knew very little about Jesus Christ, but once I left the Catholic Church and started reading the Bible, the King James Version I found was very difficult to understand. I’m glad there were other versions for those of us who are not scholars

      2Th 2:1
      Now we beseech you, Brethren, BY The Coming of OUR Lord Jesus Christ, and by Our Gathering Together unto Him,

      2Th 2:2
      That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by Spirit, Nor by Word, Nor by Letter as from us, as THAT The Day of Christ IS At Hand. Cross Ref. Eph. 5:6, Col. 2:18, Luke 21:8, Heb. 13:9

      2Th 2:3
      Let NO Man deceive you by any means: FOR That DAY Shall NOT COME, Except There COME A Falling AWAY(Away from TRUTH) First, AND That Man Of Sin Be REVEALED, The Son of Perdition;

      The Day of Christ WILL NOT COME UNTIL…These things Come First …Then Christ and his Wrath will come as, others are Left Behind But, those who are Sealed Will Not feel the Wrath. For they are the Remnants
      Rom 11:5 KJV Even so then at this present time also there is a Remnant according to the election of grace.
      Strong's Definition: From G3007; a Remainder: – Remnant.
      Original: λείπω
      Thayer Definition:
      to Leave, Leave Behind.
      All are not to go through Christ's Wrath those sealed by God's Angels.
      While the Children of Disobedience will feel the Wrath.

      C.R.~Eph 5:6
      Let NO Man Deceive you with vain words: for Because of These Things Cometh The Wrath of God Upon the Children OF Disobedience. Cross Ref. Jer. 29:4, Mat. 24:4, 2Th. 2:3
      C.R.~Jer 29:4
      Thus Saith The LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Unto All That Are Carried Away Captives, Whom I Have Caused TO Be Carried Away From Jerusalem Unto Babylon; Cross Ref. Eph. 5:6

      2Th 2:4
      Who Opposeth and exalteth himself Above All that is called God, or that is Worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the Temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Cross Ref. Dan. 11:36

      After this verse happens and the Falling AWAY
      Original: Falling AWAY ἀποστασία
      Transliteration: apostasia
      Phonetic: ap-os-tas-ee'-ah
      Thayer Definition:
      a Falling Away, defection, apostasy
      Strong's Definition: the same as G647; Defection From TRUTH (properly the state), (" apostasy" ): – falling away, Forsake.
      The Lies that People will BELIEVE IS The Falling Away from Christ and His Truth.

      Don't LET NO MAN DECEIVE HE SAYS The Lord Christ Jesus.
      Then does the Lord Jesus Christ come with his Wrath for the man of Perdition will be in chains…Great Tribulation will begin then. Some are here to work it saving those and casting out evil demons of those who want to be saved for Christ wants to loose none of his children.
      Blessings to us all.🕊️🙏

      We are right now living in the overlap period of the closing of the Church Age that will shortly usher in the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble. This type of talk puzzles Christians who were not raised in Churches where rightly dividing was taught, but I assure you it is Pauline doctrine for our dispensation.

      Understanding how things were at the dawn of the Church Age will greatly assist us here and now at the closing of our age, and better equip us to understand the true nature and import of events unfolding all around us in these chaotic times.

      Just like traffic signal lights overlap from red to orange to green and signal to us what to expect next, so also the current elements that make up the fast closing church age, the current dispensation that we are in indicate to us that the foreshadowing of the tribulation signs that will find their ultimate fullfillment and manifestation in the 7 year tribualtion are so visible and evident now. Allow me if you will to elaborate.

      The Bible is fulfilling itself. What a time to be alive! It predicts perilous times (2 Timothy 3); a Romans 1 society, characterized by depravity. Evil and violence abound together and will only escalate. The "birth pangs" will continue to intensify anf accelerate as we are seeing floods, fires, droughts, and hurricanes engulf the world. Creation is groaning! The the Bible says these things must happen.

      God is warning because He always warns before He judges and the world is facing judgment. It is being judged now but far worse is coming during the Tribulation. This is just a warm-up!

      The world is plagued right now with a supply chain crises, famine crises, war crises, coronavirus crises, financial crises, inflation crises! The globalists have engineered this global crises! The stage is so set up for Mr. Fix It (the antichrist) to come on the world stage to bring fake peace from this created crises!

      Israel is in 'Preemptive Attack Mode'!!!! Israel preemptively stuck the Islamic Jihad and now they are about to do the same to Hezbollah, and that's when Iran will activate all it's other proxies! I believe Israel also preempts a strike at Head of the 'Octopus' Iran on their nuclear facilities(Jeremiah 49)! Iran retaliates and activates its tenticles via the 'Ring Of Fire' in the form of Hezbollah, Hamas, The Islamic Jihad and Fatah and that's your Psalm 83 war! Connect the dots folks!!! The Psalm 83 War (between Israel and Iran's proxies), Jeremiah 49 (The destruction of Elam) and Isaiah 17 (The destruction of Damascus) is on the brink! From the ashes of this war will the antichrist rise!

      Chuck Missler, one of the best prophecy expositor whom I respect much speculates "hidden ones" refer to the "raptured saints" or believers in Christ who are caught up! This speculation is done by Missler after close examination of the Scripture. This is an implication that Harpazo will happen before Psalm 83 war if Chuck Missler is correct in his speculation. If Misler's interpretation is right, thus Harpazo or the Rapture of the church must really be at hand or has become very imminent!

      God is allowing some pre-tribulation birth pains on the entire world but what we see happening today is minor compared to what is coming. The Church will be absent during that Tribulation time, so in the meantime, may we have a greater burden to save people from the wrath to come. The consequences for a world that rejects Jesus Christ are unthinkable.

      I believe there is chaos on earth because Satan knows his time is short and he has ramped up his activity. He is getting new recruits for his kingdom. This is all the more reason we must be salt and light in these final days.

      With God marginalized and mocked, society today mirror the days of Noah, Sodom and Gomorrah! This already fractured world will completely collapse under the weight of the tribulation period.

      The closing days of the Church Age are a challenge for all mankind. For the Godless, these days cannot make sense. For those who know the Bible, it has the road map ahead all spelled out for us!

      We are looking at what the Bible said would be conditions that will be present when the Church Age begins to come to a close and conditions that will be present at the start of the time of Jacob's trouble! One dispensation is closing and the other is slowing coming in and we are right in the middle of the overlap between the two!

      All dispensations in the bible overlap with each other, our dispensation is ending exactly as it began in Acts 8 when it overlapped the end of the Kingdom Age. What we are seeing is the closing of the nearly 2,000-year old Church Age as it is overlapping with the soon-to-be-time of Jacob’s trouble.

      Pastor Barry Stagner stated on understanding Bible prophecy that when you are a 100 feet away from prophecy its difficult to understand what’s going on but when your are in close proximity like a foot away you know exactly what’s going on! I think of what Pastor J.d Farag stated — Prophecy has a shelf life, something’s got to give! We are living at a time where good is called evil and evil called good! There are two words that so clearly define these amazing times that we are living in — convergence and agenda! We very well have past the proverbial point of no return!

      The Rapture may not have any signs preceding it, but the Tribulation does, as described in Jesus’ Olivet discourse found in Luke 21: 7-19, Matthew 24:3-14, and Mark 13:3-13. So when you see these signs converging in ever-increasing numbers, you know the Tribulation is close and the Rapture is even closer!

      "My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, we are in the very final seconds of this dispensation known as the Age Of Grace and on the cusp of the Rapture of the Church!

      God is about to turn his attention back to His nation of Israel with the commencement of the time of Jacob's trouble also known as Daniels 70th week, the 7 year tribulation period that will be the most horrific time ever in human history!

      I would rather be wrong, sound the alarm and warn people that Jesus is not just at the door but about to turn the doorknob, rather than sit back and do nothing!

      When I look at all that is happening in the world right now and most importantly in Israel which is God's prophetic timepiece, and i look at what my Bible says by connecting the prophetic dots, it is clear as day that we are on the brink of Eternity!

      Watch Israel, watch the skies, our redemption draweth nigh!"

      Paul’s words in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-7 tell us that the Lord will remove the Holy Spirit’s restraining influence when He takes His church out of the world.

      This means the rapture must happen before the Lord allows Satan to install his man at the helm of the coming New World Order or what the World Economic Forum refers to as the Great Reset!!

      The rapture will change everything in regard to the current dynamic between the demonic forces of evil seeking to destroy our world and the convicting work of the Holy Spirit working in the hearts of countless millions. Without His restraint, Satan will bring his many to power and wreak much more havoc on the world that we currently see!

      The world is set up to experience a global war (Revelation 6:4), global famine (Revelation 6:5-6), and mass death (Revelation 6:8) on a scale we've never seen!

      Jan Markel “There isn’t a storm coming the storm is here! The globalists will seize this opportunity to install what they think is their perfect form of government and that is a one world system but they have a major obstacle….the Church is still here! Though there is foreshawdowing of a one  world government, a one world currency and a one world religion forming, it cannot come to fruition until the Tribulation! The Bible is clear that God has prepared a plan to take out the Church via the Rapture!”

      1 Corinthians 15 :1-4 (KJV)
      15 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
      2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
      3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
      4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

      The apostle did not shy away from including the “Rapture” when he proclaimed the Gospel. The receipt of glorified and imperishable bodies was the Gospel hope that Paul proclaimed to the lost. Jesus promised eternal life to His followers (John 10:27-28) and He gave further revelation about it through the apostle Paul.

      In fact, in 1 Thessalonians, the first epistle that the Apostle Paul wrote, he shares the gospel in the context of the Rapture in Chapter 4 of 1 Thessalonians, saying, for we believe that Jesus was crucified, buried, and rose again on the third day, and He’s coming back again one day. That’s the good news!

      We are on the cusp of the Rapture!

      Luke 21:28
      28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
