Prophecy Update– February 21, 2021
Coming Soon
JD Farag
Version Date: 21Feb2021

Good morning and welcome to our weekly Bible Prophecy Update. On Sunday mornings, we have
two services. The first of which is the Prophecy Update, and then the second service, which we’ll talk
about more in a moment that is our regular sermon verse-by-verse teaching through the Bible.

I want to get right to it, and I think you’ll see why here in a moment. I want talk with you about
what’s coming soon, but infinitely more importantly, “Who” is coming soon? Spoiler alert! Jesus is
coming soon, yeah!

Actually, that’s the purpose of these Prophecy Updates, by the way. It’s to get Jesus to people and
people to Jesus as many as we can as fast as we can while there’s still time because He is coming.
Actually, it’s by virtue of the fact that what’s coming soon upon the whole world, during the
tribulation, that we’re able to know, keyword, Jesus is coming sooner in the rapture before the
tribulation. Maybe just let me explain and expound on that.

What we’re seeing today, beginning to come to pass with everything that’s happening in the world,
even now, will ultimately find its prophetic fulfillment in and during the 7-year tribulation, but it’s
happening now!

This is what Jesus said about that. It’s recorded in Luke 21:28, “When you see these things [keyword]
begin to come to pass, look up and lift up your head.” Why? “Because your redemption draws nigh.”
In other words, what we’re seeing in the world today is exactly what we’re told in the Bible will
happen and be fulfilled during the last 7 years of human history we know as the 7-year tribulation,
but it’s already starting.
What does that mean? Well, what that means is that the rapture, which has to happen before the 7-
year tribulation, must be sooner than what we see now coming soon, which will be in the 7-year
Once again, as only the Lord can and seemingly has been for the last several weeks, today’s verse-byverse study titled “Keep On Keeping On” ties into today’s Prophecy Update. We’d encourage you to
join with us for those of you online; we will live stream this at 11:15 a.m. Hawaii time. This is our
second service, where we’re going through the Bible verse-by-verse.

Last week we finished 2 Timothy, and today we’re going to start in the book of Titus. We’ll be looking
at the Apostle Paul’s letter to Titus, in which in just the first 3 verses, he answers this question of how
and why he was able to endure unspeakable hardship up until the end. There is in that I believe an
encouragement for us in these the last days, so that’s the second service.

If you’ll just kindly allow me to, I want to before we jump into this; take just a moment to update you
on our website. We again very much appreciate your patience with us and, more
importantly, your prayers for us. Please, please continue praying for us. We have an amazing team
that is doing their best, and we are very excited to announce that we’re making progress.

First, for the “Live Stream” on the site, pictured here is the home page where you’ll see on the bottom left you can select the “Watch Live Bible Prophecy.” For those of you that are on YouTube
right now, that’s where you can go, and it will take you to the live stream of this video.
Actually, I would encourage those of you that are either on YouTube or Facebook to go there from
the start, so it’s uninterrupted. There you’ll have the complete and uncensored update, as the
Livestream here on social media is only the introduction.

Second, I want to draw your attention to the “On Demand Videos” of the updates, which will be
uploaded as soon as possible once the live stream ends again. We very much appreciate your
patience with us, but when this livestream ends, we will then upload the full video of today’s update.

It might take a little bit of time. We again very much appreciate your patience. Give us a least an hour
or so, heavy on the or so, and then when it’s there, you simply select “Prophecy VIDS,” as pictured
here on the top of the home page. It will then take you to the Bible Prophecy Updates Page, where
you can select the update.

Now pictured here, we’ve selected last week’s update on February 14th titled “Divide & Conquer.”
When you select that, it will take you to that update, that video, and there you will find the “Share &
Download” feature, “Closed Captioned Video.”

Now on the closed-captioned video, again, we appreciate your patience. It’s going to take a few days
because we have to burn the closed captioning into a completely separate video for the hearing
impaired. It is up now for last week’s update, but again give us a few days. But that option is now

There is are transcripts of the updates. We have an amazing team who will have treasures in heaven.
They transcribe the updates word-for-word. It’s in a PDF file format. You can click on that, and you
can actually download the transcript of that update. Again, give us a little bit of time to get that in

The links that will be referenced in the update are there. You just have to click on it and so too is the
description as well. We’re working very hard on this, and again very much appreciate your patience
with us on this.

One last thing if you don’t mind. I’m already saying one last thing, and we haven’t even started, but
this is very important. Actually, I need to bring to your attention that we continue to have scammers
on social media. It’s getting worse. This most recent one pictured here is a fake Facebook account
that uses our photos and info, and they’re trying to scam our Facebook followers. This is on YouTube
on a weekly basis. We get fake YouTube channels that use the photos and my name, and they try to
scam people to give them money for an orphanage, of course.

Here’s how you’ll know that it’s fake. We will never message anyone asking them, as this account did,
to quote, “kindly inbox me.” We don’t do that, nor will we ever ask for money ever. In fact, here, for
the benefit of those of you online, we don’t even receive an offering here. We actually just have
boxes on the back walls for tithes and offerings so, please know that these are scams.
Here’s another, one last thing, and we haven’t even started the update. One last thing: Pray for these
people. They need Jesus. They need Jesus; pray for their salvation. All right, let’s get started.
We’re going to begin as we always do with the Word of God, and we do this in order to establish a
firm foundation as the basis. As always, I would encourage you to search and examine the scriptures
for yourself and see if what I’m saying is true or not. This is Acts 17:11, where we are told about the
Berean Jews being of more noble character than those in Thessalonica.
And we’re told why. It’s because they received the message with great eagerness and examined the

scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. Thankfully, we have many Bereans, both here
locally in the church and online as well, who did this very thing and corrected me on last week’s
teaching in 2 Timothy. I bet you want to know what it is. I’m not going to tell you. You’re going to
have to join the second service. I’ll tell you all about it, very ironic, actually. So, I was corrected by the
Bereans, for which I am very thankful.

Okay, I want to preface the Scriptures that we’re going to be looking at today by first apprising you of
a concern. I just would ask that you hear my heart on this and hear me out on this. It’s concerning
that of the profound weightiness and seriousness of what’s happening in the world as to what’s
coming soon upon the world.

It’s for this reason that it’s incumbent upon me to boldly and fearlessly, yet lovingly speak the truth in
love and sound the alarm despite one’s response or reaction to the message. The Lord, as of late, has
been ministering to me out of Jeremiah.

In Chapter 1:8-9, we have the account of when God called Jeremiah, and He says to him, verse 8, “Do
not be afraid of them. For I am with you, and we’ll deliver you, declares the Lord. Then the Lord
reached out His hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth.”
Now, why do I share that? Because I have to confess, I would be disingenuous at best and dishonest
at worst if I didn’t. But I have to confess that there have been many times over the past year in
particular, when I have struggled with this very intensely, actually. By that, I mean boldly yet lovingly
preaching and teaching the unpopular prophetic word of God, knowing that most don’t want to hear
it under the banner of being “doom and gloom.”

My struggle is this. It’s that I know that if I shrink back, not wanting the push back, and I don’t want
the pushback, so you know. I don’t particularly enjoy it. The pushback always ensues. But if I shrink
back, I know that I will stand before God with blood on my hands.

Ezekiel, Chapter 33:7-9, “So you son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel.
Therefore, you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me. When I say to the wicked,
‘O wicked man, you shall surely die!’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that
wicked man shall die in his iniquity. But his blood I will require at your hand. Nevertheless, if you
warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity,
but you have delivered your soul.”

I suppose, in all fairness, you could say that there’s a selfish motivation here. I don’t want anybody’s
blood on my hands, and I want my own soul to be delivered. I don’t want to stand before God and
give an account. One of the things that I fear the most is that there would be anyone on that day who
would say, why didn’t you say something to me? Why didn’t you tell me? Did you not love me
enough, care enough about me to warn me?

This is why I have to sound the trumpet of warning and warn you about what’s coming soon. Here’s
the thing. I would rather sound the trumpet of warning and have it not come as soon as we thought
than not warn you only to have it come sooner than we thought. I truly believe with all my heart,
more so than at any other time in my life, that everything happening in the world today is pointing to
the soon return of the Lord and the rapture of the church because we already see the things that will
be fulfilled in and during the 7-year tribulation.

It’s with this preface that I would like for us to go through these passages of Scripture, which will be
germane to our understanding of just how close we really are. Let’s start with the first chapter,
beginning in the first verse of the Book of Revelation, and I want to read verses 1-3. “The Revelation
from Jesus Christ, which God gave him, speaking of John, to show His servants what must soon take
place. He made it known by sending His angel to His servant John, who testifies to everything he saw that is the Word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.”

Then verse 3, very interesting, verse 3 tells us that of all of the books in all of the Bible, only the Book
of Revelation promises a blessing to those who read it, hear it, and take it to heart. Sadly, it is one of
the most unread books in all of the Bible – by Christians. Verse 3, “Blessed is the one [listen to this]
who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart
what is written in it.”

Why? Oh, so glad you asked. “Because the time is near.” Let’s go to the last chapter of the last book
in the Bible, Revelation 22. Oh, I love to hear the turning of those Bible pages. It blesses a pastor’s
heart. I can hear you online too, keep turning them.

Verse 6, “The angel said to me, ‘These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord, the God who
inspires the prophets, sent His angel to show His servants the things that must soon take place.
‘Behold, look, I am coming soon! Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy written in
this scroll.”

Revelation Chapter 3, we refer to this passage often. It’s the letter to the church in Philadelphia, one
of seven churches. John is told to write, verse 10, “Since you have kept My command to endure
patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial [or tribulation, the same word in the original] that
is going to come on the whole world [that’s the 7-year tribulation] to test the inhabitants of the

Then he says this, verse 11, “I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have so that no one will take
your crown.” Revelation, Chapter 16:15, “Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays
awake and remains clothed so as to not go naked and be shamefully exposed.”

The Apostle Paul echoes this in 1 Thessalonians, Chapter 5:1-2. He says, “Now, brothers and sisters,
about times and dates we do not need to write you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord
will come [and here it is] like a thief in the night.”

Here’s a thought. Think about this with me. How does a thief in the night come? Unexpectedly, right?
I mean, you’re never going to have a thief text you or email or call and say, “Hey, is 2:00 a.m. a good
time for me to come and break in?” No! I know that’s a silly way to illustrate this, but that’s the best I
got, so that’s what you’re going to get. If you got something better, let me know, please.

But that’s what the Lord is saying; that’s what Paul is echoing here. That’s how the Lord’s going to
come. It’s going to be unexpected, at an hour you think not. Because if you were expecting it, and the
Thessalonians Christians were. Paul even says I don’t even need to expound on this. I don’t even
need to write to you about this because you already know this.

Know what? That the Lord’s going to come like a thief in the night. In other words, He’s going to
come at an hour that people expect Him not, and they’re going to be caught off guard! But not you
because you know and you expect Him to come! And that’s why you’re ready! That’s why you’re
awake! That’s why your eyes are open! That’s why you’re watching!

I’ll even take it a step further, referring to 2 Timothy where Paul knowing his days were numbered at
the end of his life, says, “I have finished the race. I have fought the good fight, and now there awaits
me a crown of righteousness. But not just me, all of those too who long, [dare I say ache, yearn,
await] for His return.”

I would venture to say that there are many here today, many watching online as well, and for you,
especially now with what’s happening, the Lord cannot come soon enough. Lord, come quickly!
Romans 13 verse 11, the Apostle Paul, by the Holy Spirit, writing to the church in Rome, says, “And
do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your
slumber [here’s why] because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.”

This is well-nigh 2000 years ago, Paul, by the Holy Spirit, penned these words to the Roman church.
Our salvation is so near, so much so it is nearer than I believe any of us, myself included, can possibly
even begin to imagine. Here’s the bottom line with these scriptures, and really the many like them,
they all speak to just how quickly and unexpectedly it’s all going to happen.

I want to pose this question, and I want us to answer this question. I want you to think this through
with me as I pose it. Think about what’s happened in just the last year. So here we are towards the
end of February 2021. Let’s rewind to February of 2020. Are you there yet? We’ll wait. Let me know
when you’re there.

Now think about this: How much has happened since this time last year? How fast has everything
happened since this time last year? One more part to that, how much has everything changed since
this time last year? We’re talking about a span of 12 months.

Now here’s the question I want to pose. If that’s how fast everything happened if that’s how much
everything changed since last year at this time, what’s coming? And how fast is it coming in the
months, even weeks, that lie ahead? Well, we’re going to answer that question today.
At this time, we’re going to end the Livestream here and redirect those who aren’t there yet to for the uncensored remainder.

What if I told you that the answer to the aforementioned question of what’s coming is not only
coming soon but already here? What’s already here? Well, again, what’s already here, is exactly what
we’re told will be here in the 7-year tribulation, namely the technology for global tracking, restricting,
and controlling of the world’s population. Even more specifically, tracking, controlling, and restricting
those who do not have a mark, or a pass, if you prefer, from buying basic necessities, opening up
their businesses, keeping their jobs, and traveling, etcetera.

I’ll start with a local news article my wife sent me from KITV here in Hawaii. The reason my wife sent
it to me is that I don’t watch the local news anymore here in Hawaii. I mean no disrespect. I just
can’t; it’s a blood pressure thing, but anyway… I actually don’t even watch national news anymore.
It’s all programming. By the way, if you doubt what I just said, just think about how angry you get
when you watch TV.

I’m going to take it a step further; why not at this point? My wife says to me one day, she goes, do
you know why the Amish don’t have COVID? Because they don’t have TVs. I’m going to leave that
one right there. Enough said as we say.

One more, why not? She was sharing with me a portion of a podcast she was listening to, and this is
what they said. They said if they reported on a daily basis the number of deaths due to automobile
accidents, we would never get in a car. Think about that. Well, that’s my story, and I’m sticking with
it, so back to our local news article here.

I want to quote this article, “The state is setting up a “Health Pass” system that uses technology to
verify your negative COVID-19 test results and vaccination doses so you can travel and keep your
information private.” Yeah, right. “Hawaii is doing a pilot program with a company called “CLEAR”
and is in talks with the nonprofit “The Commons Project Foundation” whose CEO KITV interviewed.”
Quoting the CEO, Paul Meyer, “The airlines have the obligation to inspect those certificates. Well,
what does that mean? It means that everyone has to go to the ticket counter, which takes a long
time, and is sort of terrible from a social distancing perspective, because you’re basically,
in order to reduce risk, you’re telling people to show up at the airport and get in a long line, and hand
pieces of paper to the checking agent to inspect.” Oh, interesting!

Still quoting, “So part of the reason that the airlines are very keen on this model is they want to be
able to let people do online check-in, where you can actually upload a digital copy of your test result
or [listen] eventually vaccination record, have it digitally read and be able to authorize you to checkin online, which again, means you don’t have to queue up at the airport.”

“We feel like we can safely reopen if people have been tested or [here it is again] eventually have
been vaccinated. But if you don’t know you can trust that test result or vaccination, it becomes
harder to put those kinds of policies in place to be able to appropriately allow travel to resume, but
still protect the population’s health,” Meyer said.

The article goes on to quote Lieutenant Governor Josh Green, who said quote, “He wants to apply
the technology beyond travel – to allow large gatherings [don’t tell anybody] like concerts, sporting
events, weddings, and graduations.”

“This is the way to open up events and our state, and if we do it in a smart way, we will restore the
economy …” That we crashed and collapsed intentionally in the first place. Sorry, that’s not in the
article. “… we will restore the economy without any bumps in the road, and we’ll actually get back to
normal way faster,” Lieutenant Governor Green said, close quote.

In preparing for a prior update last year, I did some research on CommonPass and learned that it
comes from none other than the World Economic Forum. No surprise. At the time, I discerned that
this was coming soon as a pass for those with a negative test under the guise of what would quickly
transition from a test to a vaccination.

Pictured here is a screenshot of a video on the World Economic Forum’s website of Paul Meyer, the
Commons Project Foundation CEO that KITV interviewed. In this video posted on August 24th, he
states, and I quote, “CommonPass is a platform that lets people safely and securely collect their health information,
whether it is a negative COVID test result or [here it is again] eventually [soon, can I say soon?] a
COVID vaccination, and then manage that information, control it themselves, and then be able to let
that information be used to demonstrate that they have had a negative test or they have been
vaccinated so they can get on an airplane or travel to another country.”

This comports with an Arutz Sheva article published on November 26th [2020] with a very interesting
heading reading, “We won’t force vaccine; but here’s what we will do.”
Here’s the quote. “Health Ministry Director Hezy Levy insisted to reporters that, quote, “We won’t
force people to take the vaccine. Israeli law doesn’t allow for it. [Oh, whew! Not so fast] Speaking
before the Special Knesset Coronavirus Committee, Medical Center Chief Medical Officer and Chief
Innovation Officer Dr. Eyal Zimlichman listed measures that are being planned to [listen to this]
“maneuver” the population into vaccinating as a way of regaining freedom of movement.” The

freedom that we took away from them, to begin with as part of the plan.
“The issue [still quoting] of how to “motivate” vaccine compliance has generated increasing interest,
with commentators such as Mike Cernovich writing [and I’m still quoting]: Government won’t force
you to take a vaccine. Amazon will. Airlines will. Banks will. You won’t be able to buy, sell, or trade
without the vaccine.” That’s a quote, and the link is below!

I wonder: Do these people read Revelation 13 and go, oh, we need to make sure that they know that
without this, they can’t buy, sell, or trade? You know, nah, I’m not going to do it. No, do it! [joking]
Back in March of last year, since we’re rewinding the clock to last year, I was called every name of the
book, plus new ones were invented for talking like this saying, this is it! Pastor, you’re off the rails!
You’ve lost your marbles. That presupposes I had marbles to lose from the beginning. You’re
completely given over to conspiracies! Okay, whatever.

I don’t mean to be mean, but can I just say it? I told you so a year ago that’s where this was heading,
and now it’s here. It’s not that I need to be right or vindicated. The Lord knows my heart. I take no
delight in this.

Oh, believe you, me! I would love to stand behind this pulpit, as is my privilege to every week, and
just God bless you, God loves you! Let’s just all have a big group hug. I can’t! Everything’s going to be
okay. I think about when the prophets would say peace! Peace, nothing to see here! Stay calm, carry
on, go back home. Eat, drink, be merry when there is no peace.

Israel apparently has had this plan in place to motivate, incentivize, and get people to get vaccinated.
You might be surprised to know that they’ve been met with a large measure of success. Pictured here
is a graph from “Our World in Data” on January 18th, published by the BBC, showing the reported
vaccine doses administered per 100 people in the 10 countries with the most vaccinations. Not only
is Israel leading the world, but they’re also doing so at a significantly higher rate than the U.S., which
is 4th on the list.

Now, why do I point this out? Because Israel has enforced strict lockdowns repeatedly, and they’ve
done so, so as to “maneuver and motivate” the population towards vaccine compliance in order to
regain their freedom of movement, and it worked. It worked.

Last Tuesday, the Times of Israel published a very telling article titled, “How Israel plans to operate a
COVID ‘green pass, ‘ and prevent forgeries.” While i24 news reported just this morning that this is
being implemented only in certain instances, the intent is to make many activities available only to
those vaccinated, and that can prove it with said “green pass.”

Let me quote the article, “Street-front shops, malls, markets, museums, and libraries will be open to
all Israelis. But only those who have been vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19 will be able
to use gyms and enter sporting and culture events, hotels, and swimming pools, showing “green
pass” proof to gain access. The coronavirus czar, Nachman Ash, said Monday that Israelis will have to
use an app as proof or print out barcoded certificates to prove their status.”

On Thursday, The New York Times, of all publications, published this very interesting article bearing
the title, “As Israel Reopens, Whoever Does Not Get Vaccinated Will Be Left Behind.” Interesting
choice of words.
Quoting, “Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s cabinet voted this week to open shopping malls and
museums to the public, subject to social distancing rules and mandatory masking. For the first time in
many months, gyms, cultural and sports events, hotels, and swimming pools will also reopen, but
only for some.
Under a new “Green Badge” system that functions as both a carrot and a stick, …” Another
interesting choice of words: a carrot and a stick to bait you, to coerce you, to motivate you, to
incentivize you, to maneuver you, dangle the carrot. “… the government is making leisure activities
accessible only to people who are fully vaccinated or recovered starting Sunday.” That’s today.

“Two weeks later, restaurants, event halls, and conferences will be allowed to operate under those
rules. Customers and attendees will have to carry a certificate of vaccination with a QR code.”
So no longer is it, “Where are your papers?” Sorry about that, not really. It’s “Where is your QR
code?” I’ll do that in Arabic if you want, but that might be disturbing, so I won’t. I have to add the
levity, okay? If I don’t laugh, I’ll cry, seriously, by the way.

“Getting vaccinated is a moral duty. It is part of our mutual responsibility,” said the health minister,
Yuli Edelstein. He also has a new mantra: ‘Whoever does not get vaccinated will be left behind.’ “The
debate swirling within Israel is percolating across other parts of the world as well, with plans to
reserve international travel for vaccinated ‘green passport’ holders.”
“Israel’s central government – eager to bring the country out of its 3rd national lockdown without

setting off a new wave of infections – was spurred into action by local initiatives. Chafing under the
country’s lockdown regulations, an indoor shopping mall in the working-class Tel Aviv suburb of Bat
Yam threw its doors open last week for customers who could prove that they had been vaccinated or
had recovered from COVID-19.”

“In Karmiel, the mayor made a similar decision to open his city in the northern Galilee region for
business. His office began processing requests from employers who could verify that all of their
employees had received the requisite two vaccine doses or had recovered from the virus.

“And in other cities, mayors wanted to bar unvaccinated teachers from classrooms while some
hoteliers threatened unvaccinated employees with dismissal.” It’s not coming; it’s already here!
Still quoting, “Dr. Peled Raz said the temporary emergency law governing Israel’s response to the
virus would be easier to amend with regard to health workers than to others because of the
potential harm to themselves and patients, adding that would be justified.” And then he says this,
quote, “You want to be a nurse and won’t get vaccinated? Either get vaccinated or choose another

I want to quote this Israel Hayom article from December 25th in which they asked the question,
“Where will Israel’s ‘green passport’ proof of COVID vaccination take you?” The subheading reads,
“Vaccinated Israelis will be able to travel to the Dead Sea and Eilat, skip mandatory quarantine if they
return from abroad or come in contact with a coronavirus patient, and visit cultural venues and
attend sports events.” Only if you’re vaccinated!

At the end of the article, they quote Intelligence Minister Eli Cohen as saying, “This is great news for
businesses and a significant catalyst for a return to normal life, ….” “The launch of the green passport
program is a vital step toward opening businesses and reviving the economy. It will be a major [I
want you to listen to this word] incentive for people to get vaccinated.”

Thursday morning, I was sitting in my office; I got my screens with the channels, all on mute. In fact,
they’re stuck on mute. If I tried to unmute them, I don’t think they would unmute because I just can’t
listen to it anymore. But I just caught this one screenshot on i24, which is a news broadcast out of
Israel, and they have this segment… Oh, good, wait till I get there before you start.
You see the “Tel Aviv Bars Offering Free Beer With Vaccine shot.” Incentive! You want a beer? You
have to be vaccinated. This was Thursday morning.

A couple hours later, I saw a subsequent broadcast on the same story. Go ahead and read the thing
because you’re already there. “Tel Aviv Bar Entices Residents to Vaccinate With Free Booze.” Yeah,
there’s some incentive for you. Do you know what the reporter said? I was astounded! She said,
“Bars are offering free shots for shots.” Let that sink in. You have to get the shot to get a shot. How
about that!

You’ll forgive me for saying this again, but it is inexplicable to me that people buy the lie that this
vaccine is so safe and effective that you have to be coerced and even forced to take it, for a virus
we’re told is so deadly, that you have to be tested to know if you even have it.

Last week, an online member sent me a video of Catherine Austin Fitts and Dolores Cahill, both of
which I’ve quoted in previous updates. This video was in December, and it was an interview by
Maneka Helleberg, the Chairman of the World Freedom Alliance. What follows, and we have the

By the way, this is probably as good a time as any to say; if you go to a link that we provide and that’s
not there anymore, that’s because they took it down. We’ll do our best to provide these links, but
there are no guarantees. They’re scrubbing everything from the Internet.

Here are several quotes from this interview, starting with Dolores Cahill. “People are being coerced.
They’re being told they can’t leave their homes or that they can only get employment or travel if they
take vaccines. I’ve spent 20-years working in immunology. I would not take them. I wouldn’t
recommend them for any of my family. I more or less put my career on the line to try and get the
information out that in the last 40-years – “0” RNA vaccines have been licensed to be on the vaccine schedule …” Zero! “I’ve said if you paid me $10 million, I wouldn’t take it. I would go to prison first,
and if someone vaccinated me, I would charge them with attempted murder.”

Catherine Austin Fitts, “This is all part of a transition, and what the central bankers are doing is
engineering central control and using the financial system to engineer financial control. Many of the
health restrictions are all about engineering that central control. So, this is a huge concentration of
power and wealth. The critical issues before us are: Are we going to be a human society or an
inhuman society? Are we going to concede to them? So, this is a big, very tricky transition year for
the central bankers.”

“It goes down to each individual choice and everyone making their own choices. You see, so many
people say, “well, if I don’t want to lose my job, I have to comply. If I should not be seen as a
conspiracy theorist, I have to agree to this craziness.” But I believe that people know something is
wrong. People know what’s going on, but we need, like you say, to inspire and get the courage. This
is madness, you know, to wear masks, to inject an unsafe vaccine, to completely devastate the whole
planet’s economy. This is political bushwhacking.”

Okay, you’re looking at me with that look; I didn’t know what bushwhacking meant either. I looked it
up. You know what bushwhacking means? Attacking, ambushing.
This sort of brings us full-circle to the beginning and the matter of what’s coming soon that’s already
here, and because of it, Who is coming soon and very soon. I am personally of the belief that it is only
a matter of time before the vaccine becomes mandatory for everyone and not just “front-line”
workers who are being required now.

Just yesterday, I received an email from an online member who works in the medical field that sent
me a screenshot, a picture of this notification. It says, and I quote, “We are taking all necessary
precautions as we look forward to getting ‘back to normal.’ All employees will be mandated to offer
proof of receipt of an FDA-approved vaccination within 45 days. Employees who do not fulfill this
requirement will be placed on unpaid leave of absence, and their status will be evaluated by Human
Resources to determine if their employment will be continued.”

Translated: You don’t get the vaccine, you can’t buy food, you can’t work, you can’t earn a living.
Your employment terminated, terminated.

All right, I’m going to say this, this way, and once again, I hope you don’t tire of me saying this. If you
do tire of me saying this, then you’re going to be really tired because I’m going to keep saying this. I
truly believe that the rapture of the Church of Jesus Christ is at the door! And I’m not just saying that.
I’m saying it with forensic evidence, and that forensic evidence is the scriptural and biblical support
concerning the prophecies in the 7-year tribulation and the sound doctrine of the pre-tribulation
rapture. And if everything that we’re seeing in the world now is already taking shape for the 7-year
tribulation, and the rapture has to happen before the 7-year tribulation, then I ask you: How close
are we? We will not be here for this.

That’s not to say that things won’t get infinitely worse before the rapture. They certainly will, and
many will be faced with this decision which, by the way, we’ve talked about in-depth, at length, in
previous updates by that title, by the way, “Decision Time.” I’ve been doing these weekly Prophecy
Updates for going on now 15 years, and I have to say, I don’t know what to say except it’s happening,
and this is it. And this is why we do these updates.

And I’m going to make no assumptions. You might be here sitting in this church; we’re glad that you
are. You might be watching online; we’re glad that you are. But if Jesus were to come, you would be
left behind and not because of the vaccination, as we just read. It’s because you weren’t ready. You

weren’t ready for Jesus because you weren’t right with Jesus and that’s why we do what we do every
week and share the Gospel, the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ.
The word “Gospel” means “good news.” Your debt has been paid, the penalty has been paid in full.
You’re free to go, good news. What death? What penalty? Oh, the death penalty? It’s been paid for
you instead of you. Because Jesus came, He was crucified. He died for you. He was buried, and on the
third day, He rose again, and He’s coming back again one day soon and very soon. That’s the good
news! That’s the Gospel.
Going on about three years now, I think it is; actually, we’ve been doing the ABCs of Salvation. It is a
child-like explanation of salvation. It was about three years ago the Lord really impressed upon my
heart to start doing this, and boy, am I so glad that we did.
It’s a very simple way to explain salvation. The A is for: Admit or acknowledge that you’re a sinner,
that you’ve sinned, that you need the Savior. Romans 3:10 says, “There is no one righteous, not even
one.” Romans 3:23 tells us why. It’s because “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” We
were all born sinners, which is why we must be born-again, Jesus said, to enter the Kingdom of
Romans 6:23 is interesting because it’s sort of packages the bad news first with the good news.
What’s the bad news? Oh, it’s really bad. It’s the death penalty. We’ve all been sentenced to death.
Why? “Because the wages of sin is death.” That’s the bad news.
What’s the good news? Oh, the good news is, “The gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus, our Lord.”
It’s a gift. Ephesians 2:8-9, “For we are saved by grace through faith. It is the gift of God, not of works,
unless anyone should boast.”
Think about a gift: If you pay for it, it’s not a gift; it’s a purchase. But a gift is something that someone
had to purchase to give you as a gift, right? He purchased it! He purchased it, and He paid for it in
full, and it cost Him everything. It cost Him His life, and He paid for it, and He offers this gift of eternal
Here’s the B. The B very simply is for: Believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord and that God
raised Him from the dead. This is Romans 10:9-10, and it says, “If you believe in your heart that God
raised Jesus from the dead, you will, will be saved.”
We’re going to talk about this more Second Service in our study in Titus. It’s the assurance of
knowing, as the Apostle John says, that you can know that you have eternal life. It’s a done deal. The
jury is no longer out. The verdict is in. You will be saved.
The C lastly is for: Call upon the name of the Lord, or as Romans 10:9-10 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 that
you confess and are saved.” Lastly, Romans 10:13, this seals the deal. It says, “That all who call upon
the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Again, I implore you, and I know we talk a lot about how close we are to the rapture, but what if your
untimely death precedes the rapture? You’ll forgive me if that sounds morbid, but again, it’s the
truth. It’s the truth.
Actually, this happened at Jan Markel’s conference a couple of years ago. Then I want to share with
you a very moving testimony from an online member if you’ll just give me a couple more minutes. It
was right before it was my turn to speak, and there’s this precious sister in Christ that was standing in

She proceeded to tell me a story. She said that she used the ABCs of Salvation to share the Gospel
with a dear friend of hers who was really going through a difficult time and having serious marriage
problems, and it was just really bad. So, she shared the ABCs of Salvation, and her friend came to a
saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. She led her to the Lord, and she got saved.

That following Sunday, she went to church with her, and again, with tears streaming down her face,
she shares about how her newly-saved friend is just praising the Lord, just born-again, and saved in
Christ, a new creation. It was shortly after that her husband murdered her and then killed himself,
days before she had given her life to Christ.

I’ll close with a very moving testimony that comes from an online member, Judith Reagan, who
writes, “Blessings to you, Pastor JD, I am writing you because I lost the love of my life on February 6,
2021 [a couple weeks ago].

Shawn has been watching, listening to your Prophecy Updates and Bible studies for a few years now.
We were both waiting for the Lord Jesus to take us and meet us in the air. But Shawn went there
first. I was not expecting him to pass away, but he has been in and out of the hospital and in constant
pain for reasons that had no real diagnosis.

I tell you this because Shawn passed away in a very special way. He came home from the hospital the
very evening that he passed. It was supposed that he was all better. He started feeling a little dizzy,
and I got up and walked him to his side of the bed. I then went to my side of the bed and sat down.
Then just a moment later, Shawn laid down in the bed, rested his head on the pillow, and said, “I feel
better now.”

I said, “That’s good, sweetie,” and glanced over at him, and his tongue was blue. I tried to wake him
but was unable. I ran to his side of the bed, flipped him over, and felt for a heartbeat, there was
none. I frantically tried to get the phone on, all the while delivering CPR to my love. But he was gone.
Jesus took him.

Shawn spent at least the last 3 years learning about Jesus through pastors like you. He enjoyed you
and would watch without me. But I was happy to watch and listen to your teachings over and over
again. But what a gift it was that Jesus gave me on that horrifying day. He let me hear my husband
say, “I feel better now,” with his very last breath. I visualize him seeing Jesus at that very moment.
God is good all the time. Shawn loved the ABCs of Salvation and loved hearing the stories of people
spreading the Gospel and your Bible teachings. Because of that, I placed the ABCs of Salvation on his
obituary. He has many family members who do not know Jesus or refuse to accept Jesus. God bless
you and keep you and yours. Love in Christ Jesus, Judith Reagan.”

Why don’t you all stand? I appreciate your patience. We’ll have the worship team come up, and I’d
like to close in prayer. You know, I keep wondering: Which Prophecy Update’s going to be the last?
That’s not hyperbole; I’m not exaggerating when I say that. I really do because I truly believe we’re
that close.

I implore you, as a watchman on the wall sounding the alarm if you’ve never called upon the name of
the Lord, believing in your heart, trusting in Him for the forgiveness of sin. I mean, I guess in some
ways I’m begging you. There’s no more time. Do not put it off. This is the most important decision of
your life for eternal life.

And lastly, for those of us who do you know the Lord, love the Lord, walk with the Lord, I just want to
encourage you: not much longer, just hold on. I know it’s getting bad. It’s getting scary. He’s coming.
He’s coming

Let’s pray, Father in heaven, thank You. Lord, thank You for Bible prophecy, for telling us in Your
Word what’s going to happen before it happens so when it begins to happen, we can know just how
close we really are.

And for those who do not know you, I pray, Lord, as they see what’s happening, and know that in
Your Word, You said this was going to happen before it happened, that they will believe. They will
believe and come to You and surrender to You and call upon You and be saved today. Today!
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Irreducible Elements of the Gospel

The gospel is the great nonnegotiable of Christian truth. We aren’t allowed to add to, subtract from, embellish, or rejigger the sacred message of how sinful men can be reconciled to a holy God.

That’s why the apostle Paul reserved his sternest warning for anyone who would dare to mess with the message: “If any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed” (Galatians 1:9).

The preacher is left with one option when it comes to faithful gospel proclamation—and it’s not an elusive option reserved for scholars. Paul expected his audience to be able to clearly differentiate between the one true gospel and all the other pretenders. It is an expectation implicitly placed upon all believers. With that in mind, we recently asked John MacArthur to identify and explain the essential truths of saving faith—the irreducible elements of the gospel.

Our destinies hinge on the unshakable nature of those truths. Any variation in just one of them and the hope of eternal life completely collapses.  

If you present a different god than the God of Scripture, you are effectively calling people to idolatry. If you preach another Christ you do not have the Lord; you have a liar or a lunatic. If salvation by grace through faith alone is corrupted with even the smallest amount of works-righteousness, “Christ will be of no benefit to you” (Galatians 5:2). If we don’t repent from our former sinful ways, we will perish (Luke 13:3,5).
