Why would anyone want to mock and scoff at the glorious things predicted for our future. The Bible says that one of the signs of the end times will be people Bible prophecy. So many professing Christians today, but the idea of Jesus Christ, supernaturally intervening in the affairs of this world so scholars today, including many Bible scholars have come to view the Bible as literature that might have some historical value, but not as the infallible word of God. Another reason traditional Christians reject the many prophecies about God soon coming kingdom is because of the many false predictions throughout history. Because of these failures. Many people over time have developed a skeptical cynical attitude toward Bible prophecy. They scoff at the prophecies of God.

This is understanding the times radio with Jim Markel last week introduced you to best-selling author Jeff Kimberly has had a successful pastoral ministry is the author of over 30 books discovery, a nationally known speaker, Jeff's experience and expertise in explaining God's truth is well known that a featured guest on Fox and friends Glenn Beck show Ben Shapiro show in hundreds of national radio and television programs. Jeff's latest book is titled uncovering the secrets of Bible prophecy.

10 keys for unlocking what Scripture really says space program was again based on at the excited Jeff is a great to continue. Last week's discussion this week so let's begin to restart the conversation dear Stan Markel I feel led today to share with you. Second Peter three, 3 to 5, and the reason I'm doing that is very obvious. Many of you again know that the rapture does not occur on September 23, 2000 and the medias blown that you know all over the place okay calling Christians, wackos, and in all sorts of stuff and saying that you know we said the world are people working the world was ending and stuff like that and personally to be a seven year tribulation. There is a thousand year millennial kingdom. So I know that the world is not any fungicide that scoffing and mocking is that it is in a level I've never seen before. So the Scriptures been on my heart lately. Knowing this first at them shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts and saying where's the promise of his coming for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation so mocking and scoffing at again is at a level I've never seen it at especially from Christians saying saying the stuff so I want to share this with you think it's been all my heart and it's been a lot of other people's hearts. Second Peter three, 3 to 5 that's, you know, so markers and scoffers out there you're fulfilling Bible prophecy.

This suggests another indicator of how close we are to the Lord's return and welcome to the program. Well, that was just a little tease because I talk about that. Actually, my guess from last weekend's come back and that would be Jeff Kinley were carrying his new book, uncovering the secrets of Bible prophecy.

There's so much to talk about.

I just felt I could not get it all into one program and he's agreed to come back this week as well and Jeff, thank you for doing so let me just go there for a minute if you don't mind had is that little clip I played intentionally and working to get back to what lies ahead the things to come here, but that little clip is so true. I have never I've been studying this since the 1970s when everybody was excited that kind of fell off in the 90s, but the mocking and the scoffing is out of control and sure you seem to do. In fact what the world coming from within the church, absolutely and utterly go a lot of pushback on Bible prophecy talking about the coming Jesus Christ like in your Bible and God's word and yet many people want to ridicule scoffing to make fun of them to downplay and even demonize some of us who are talking about coffee at where some sort of opportunity for a way to make money or something.

Though this is just simply telling people the truth and helping them prepare about what's coming. We talked briefly last week and that some of the things that add to this complication and that would be some of the false teachers Harold camping's the your wise and the centers. The sensational is going to be an Apocalypse in 2012. A lot of people felt the blood moons were significant in and they may have been but the real blood moons take place during the tribulation, the ones that are apocalyptic in nature to K so we have some circumstances come along that have fueled this mocking and scoffing at all and my point. DirecTV documentary called sign interviewed about September 2017. Planetary alignment director asked me on camera. You think this is coming from Revelation 12 and the follow-up absolutely not in the Revelation 12 about Israel about Jesus have nothing to do with the alignment of the start and yet it caught a lot of people's attention professionally always do and it gets them thinking and in retrospect it back.

It really discredits a lot of things that true Bible teachers are saying because they want to lump us in with some of these doomsday right also encourages pastors to stay away from this topic because rightfully sound they don't want to get lumped in with Harold camping in my in apocalypse people and Sandra just where we were last week and let me just kinda reset the stage a little bit last week Jeff joined me for the whole hour because were carrying his new book, uncovering the secrets of Bible prophecy, and among other things in the book Jeff talks in detail.

We can't go in detail because radio testing is way too expensive to go into detail but were doing the best we can. Talking about things to come, and he's got a chapter in there what lies ahead. The order of things to come.

I feel is something that the church needs to consider because folks here to be a part of the things to come one way or another. If any part of the good things I hope you're not a part of the bad things in last week Jeff. We looked at things to come, the rapture of the church. We talked about that we take it pre-tribulation Stan we talked about the bema seat. The judgment seat of Christ. We talked about the marriage of the Lamb, not marriage supper. That's a bit later. We talked about the seven year tribulation sent we sent out some warnings about that no one wants to go through that particular time of trouble, and if your born-again blood bought person child of Jesus Christ, you won't because the church is spared the tribulation. We talked about the battle of Gog and Magog probably early stages of the tribulation. I'm giving this to you folks because you might've missed last week and we talked about Jesus second coming.

We talked about Israel's judgment. The judgment of the Gentiles. We talked about Satan's binding and we talked about. Of course, the second coming, which of course is huge. So let's pick up after Satan's binding which is Revelation 20. This is preceded by the judgment of the Gentiles which is preceded by Israel's judgment and after that comes the saints resurrection and talk to me about that Revelation chapter 20 verse 400 believers in Jesus were beheaded. The workout will be brought back to what you want to did not receive the mark of the beast on their four head or their hand that they come to light and Lane cry thousand years again. Parenthetically, I will felt that it does pay to serve Jesus even when you die when you give your life for him at this missionary recently did there so many ways that we can point to the fact that quite war. We stand for him. He will stand for Stephen, the first Christian martyr, yet believers come back to life and reigned with Christ in a thousand years later, after the legal kingdoms. When the rest of the dead. The evil that the wicked will be brought to life to be judged yet this resurrection of the resurrection to life into reigning with Christ. Let's move on to the millennium and we could spend the rest of the hour on the millennium and it's it's a fascinating time.

Prince of peace, residing over literal paradigms. Believers will govern over those who have mortal bodies and sins curse on creation thing.

God is finally lifted me and even the animals for that matter, the trees are impacted by the curse of sin has nothing to do with global warming, or anything like that. It's all the part of sin.

All of that will vanish. Jeff, the millennium is it's kind of a puzzle to me. It's a literal thousand years.

Now there's a huge section of the church that doesn't take that literally they would be they would be millennialist's and what would they believe that where the millennium now. I think spiritual kingdom they would and not a literal thousand year picture of a very long time type thing. One of the biggest problems that numbered repeated 67 note got trying to make a point. Trying to be clear with about that thought, I don't believe that the reign of Christ on the earth is simply a spiritual thing happening now happening now frankly not doing a very good job managing chaos and certainly not the heart of many people think it is the future little rain upon the earth last for a thousand years.

The great thing about that candidate. No listener right now on your program could even possibly be amazingly wonderful things that Jesus Christ had planned in store for those who love him coming this time. As you mentioned going to be a time were living in paradise. The Prince of peace is sitting upon his throne awarding his faithful giving of governing role over the nations the Lamb and the lion will lie down together and live the 11.

The legs will be buying anymore, but really the greatest part all worship the Lamb. We as people will get the fellowship with one another on a level that we even imagined before. Yet it'll finally be peace on earth because the Prince of peace is raining since those with immortal bodies will be ruling correctly will have some sort of authoritative rule absolutely, and Bob will judge angels in many different responsibilities and an ability to even mention because God certainly can include everything in the Bible this going to take place. So the site will be a time of lift time, he kind of enjoyment at time of fulfillment in a time of great worship idea what we might do in the millennium now you just said we might worship okay but I doubtlessly worship probably around the clock.

You think would have assignments have some sort of a occupation in the millennium got responsibilities here on earth, so it makes sense that he would give his responsibilities during the millennial kingdom is simply going to be the focus being on Jesus Christ you right now the church is so distracted on so many earthly things, and Paul told the colossus to set your mind on things about finally be able to set our minds on things above, and the person which is Christ but yet God will keep us busy with quite enjoyable activity won't be plowing a field by the sweat of our ground is going to be enjoyable responsibilities and fun to me. Why wouldn't God include funding the things well is Solomon apathetically to cook and eat who can drink and can have enjoyment without him and so think it will be a time of unprecedented spiritual, godly pleasure government will work to leave seen in recent decades that government doesn't work very well in recent years, it doesn't hardly work at all, but it's going to Jerusalem is going to be the center of the world. Jesus Christ will rule and reign out of Drew's not Washington, not Cairo, not Damascus but Jerusalem. Again, that holy city talked to Jeff Kinley for both last weekend this week listening to understand the times radio and Jim Markel because were carrying his newest book uncovering the secrets of Bible prophecy. 10 keys for unlocking what Scripture really says and you can find it. Mice bookstore, olive tree and call us at any time, central time, they can find it. Your local bookstore as well. Just at the end of this millennium. I'm sorry and I'm not wild about this idea and are referred to it last week, briefly. Revelation 20 verse seven through 10. Satan is released for a final rebellion and some will have been duped by him during the millennium. Explain that that's hard to understand Revelation 20 site will be released again to save the nation again out. We got believers coming into the millennial kingdom. The implication is that they will repopulate the earth to a certain degree and that makes up part of those nations that we see over that fell in your. A thousand years alone in his dark cell and being intrinsically evil had time to reflect and think about how he lost the power over the earth over the nation that he once had during the tribulation period and then leading up to that time as well come out with a seething hatred and a desire for revenge against the Lamb of God and those who are made in his image. So is released for short time.

We don't know exactly how long that's going to be, but he's going to map this huge rebellion of people against the Lamb, Jesus Christ, and of the Bible all the nations, Gog and Magog and offer that will mean exactly the same terms as phone back in your 38 simply means it's going to be like that type of rebellion against God and Armageddon part two a kind of thing. If you will and are coming out and just to consume them. Now the question becomes what would God even do the doctor simply judge those who rebelling against them think and the short answer.

That is, we won't don't really know, however, speculate perhaps the way to communicate to us now is that Satan never changes.

He had no redemptive quality pop goes about also held that human nature is still to pray for those who were born during the millennial kingdom they're not born righteous. There still born in the still impatient think.

Also, you know, for whatever reason you think? Why did God allow out of any fruit, but Satan is released thing just to show that God does triumph over evil. Even when you think that you been taking care of God still tells us that he's in charge and he will not be overcome by standby evil one the most evil one. When does Christ and the devil actually get thrown permanently into the lake of fire in Revelation 19 that that happened that he cast them into the lake of fire, and so that's when they get Like a far and I think they stay there the whole time. I don't think they're allowed to be released with after that thousand year. If you'd like more information on just you can just Jeff he saw the numbers of books in his ministry equips churches to discern the times is gonna weekly podcast in a vintage truth.

You can learn actually met Jeff at the first time in mid October as we both were ministering in a prophecy conference in Oklahoma City.

And then there was an interesting time. Jeff and 30 other speakers so we had not a competition that day. That weekend it was Jeff.

Let's start talking here for a moment. If we need to pick it up in the next segment we will, but the great white throne judgment. This is so important is for the unrepentant people who are going to face God in them in a future judgment. There's no pardon there's no reprieve that's only eternal torment people being damned for eternity at the great white throne judgment. Revelation 2011 through 15. There might be someone listening could be potentially had their absolutely really want to take your shoes off and tread lightly on the very sobering part of Scripture and perhaps most frightening passages in all of the Bible because it held that those unrepentant souls who been kept in hell their time of death are now brought out of hell be officially judged at the throne of God obsolete. This throne implies great authority. God being the authority the universe there is great fear struck to the heart of these people. But no, there's no appeal process before this court, there's no time for second chances. There are no reprieve chances to believe in Christ. They had their chance during their time on planet Earth and the Bible told all the fate of all those who reject his offer. Salvation is a place of great torment with no rest day or night.

No pardon chance to even the catch your breath because they heard God's truth. They chose to reject him and I think that's the most regrettable thought any human could ever have the in hell and know that they chose to be there. They had a chance chose not to know somebody might still got trying to scare people in heaven are spot that is you know what you were diagnosed with cancer and that you don't take this treatment you're going to die. You took the treatment because you are afraid of dying still pretty good motivation back I came across my fill out of a fear of dying and being without God in hell forever. So yes, I think this should be a passage that people should know about should read about Christian should share with their friends. Just as a matter of reality. This is a prophecy that God is given in Scripture that is going to happen. Speaking of prophecy. So's just a heads up here that I will be speaking in a prophecy conference up joining some of my prophecy leader ministries friends Saturday January since Southern California be doing a mere Stephani Jenkins pastor Barry Stagner at the awaiting his return conference at Calvary Chapel Tustin, California, and if you'd like to attend to be live out that that region of the country.

That is to get out there and tell their friends and their family and their coworkers that Jesus Christ is come in and then thirdly it brings people great great confidence. Confidence in knowing that God's word never fails, it will never fail because what God is said in the past has been confirmed by his prophetic fulfillment study Bible prophecy and get excited about the future you understand about judgment. Now once you understand the truth of it should have an impact on how you live your life now because it will set you free from some of the fears about death and judgment that a lot of people have never pours out his wrath. Without warning he does not wish that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. He warns three medial judgments and through pathetic voices uncovering the secrets of Bible prophecy author Jeff Finley's newest release is again the theme of today's times broadcast just conversation with Jeff again last week as part one of this two-part series. All all of three radio archive tab once again with the guest author Jeff Finley Jim Markel another question want to write you is why is biblical prophecy prophecy support is basically makes up 30% of the Bible that she is. If you look at 39 books of the Old Testament. 17 prophetic books to look at the Gospels big portions of pelvic discourse. In Matthew 24, 25, Mark 1321 the whole book of Revelation is a prophetic books Jesus talk to prophecy. Paul talked a lot about prophecy's epistles so one had ever before versus basically this process of prophecy is very important because important Bible knowing that prophecy reveals beginning. If you want to know what happened and what's going to happen. You look at the prophetic words of Christ and the apostles and prophets in the Bible Bible prophecy also introduces us to the divine revelation shows us important facts about Scripture and things that is intending to do. The state of mankind biblical prophecy is the portion of the Bible therefore should be important process of learning for Christians in general definition of prophecy prophecy at prophecies.

A study of future things to come. So in theology the culture of eschatology setting in time, stuff, prophecy is important. Good question. Can read Revelation 19 we know that prophecy and spirit of Christ. So if you want to really understand more of Christ, who is prophecy in the Bible also says the study will be blessed.

Okay, welcome back for two weekends. Now we been looking at a single book shifting leads book the uncovering the secrets of Bible prophecy. 10 keys for unlocking what Scripture really says and Jeff on the line and were doing again this weekend because I feel the content is important now. I will admit I focused on probably just a few pages of the book because the book is talking about so many things that are important, but what caught my eye was a section of the book titled what lies ahead and naturally spent a couple weeks looking at is what comes first, followed by the wife and what are the characteristics of that particular generation that's going to be experiencing from the rapture to the tribulation of those who are left behind in the millennium that we have worked our way up.

Jeff, can we we worked our way up to leave on through the millennium.

We've even talked about Satan's release in the final rebellion. Revelation 20 verses seven through 10 God led them out for some reason you have given a good warning on the great white throne judgment. Revelation 2011 through 15, let me ask you this, just those who die without Jesus Christ today started to go to a holding tank and then come before that great white throne And hell suffering under God's wrath. I don't think that the Notion of purgatorial or some sort of waiting room before they experience God's final wrap not think they're going to be experiencing judgment from the day that I die 922 says that once a man dies after that comes the judgment. So think of the suffering under God's wrath, but if you want to call in reprieve you know of them getting a sense of relief is now coming before the white throne to officially be judged from God that the only time to be out of healthy for that brief time, but nothing after that. Going into the lake of fire reprieve to light since eternal torment and for eternity. And that's for those folks who reject the Lord Jesus Christ let's move on here because there's a very intriguing time and I don't think any of us can possibly understand the mind of God. Here, let me just say and it would be sort of the new heavens and the new earth.

After the millennium, God will destroy everything in the universe. That's Revelation 21. They were simply no longer exists, he will destroy the heavens and he will destroy the earth. I want to just ask a couple of specific questions, because apparently he wants to literally make all things new.

Help us understand this will one day heavens will be destroyed. But unlike you previously God destroyed the world and the people in it with water without going to come with great heat. One of the reasons that the Lord help us understand nothing of sin will remain in God's economy is showing everything remotely related to that that half-life past relationship with them. Because God can do anything about this, if you know you're on a ship one day was going think you would certainly think about getting off the ship at some point… Basically he removes us from that he creates a new heaven and a new earth for our pleasure and for enjoyment word recording uses therefore kind off which means something that is fresh and unlike anything ever before to new and quality got go to a fixer-upper version of the old heavens of the old earth to be a new heaven and a new earth, and Scripture tells us is going to be this new Jerusalem. As you mentioned before, the active cubelike city and you have a hard time wrapping my mind around that. Jan just 1500 mild direction, but tell that there's going to be gold streets there and get all this is where people get the whole idea of the pearly gates mentality. Importantly, Peter won't be there checking I will be a crystal-clear water flowing into this place in the tree of life that we lost back in the garden will return again. So many things God is going to give to us things that are are I haven't seen her ears haven't heard, perhaps even colors we've never seen found. Feelings and emotion that could only come with a glorified read humanity. Yet God will make all things of all will be with you right since.

Finally, the deepest longings of the human heart will be fulfilled so they might not have been fulfilled in the seven years were in heaven was the thousand years were in the millennium because it got to make something new I think is going to increase that even better. Think about it with an infinite God with power with an unconditional, everlasting love. God is able to say you know what you think this great look at what I'm about to do for you and Jim help me is that God's love for is even greater than we have ever even imagined that once we see him to realize things about him and know that he truly is a good God not the God thing called doubt in the garden, but a God that can make all things even better than the previous heaven.

The previous kingdom of God, create a new one. You can learn a lot more in the book that we carry olive trees use downward uses an viewpoint on three go to our bookstore uncovering the secrets of Bible prophecy, you can find in your local Christian bookstore as well. Probably Christian as well. It's authored by Jeff can you can learn more about Jeff and Jeff and had Jeff on before talking about all related issues to what were talking about today but were not carrying a lot of products these days, but I did happen to spot this one because appreciate both the author and the publishing house and know that only solid material comes out of them. So we talked about the topic here for two weekends last weekend we picked it up again this weekend and Jeff you talk about in the book about stage setting signs and I would like to just reference a few of those and perhaps we can comment on them a little bit actually had been writing an article. These this programming is an air here is where kind of winding down 2018. Hence, I wrote an article about some of the top Bible prophecy stories of 2018.

I don't want to go through that I wanted just to cite a few and get your perspective and I think the biggest story of five 2018 and the topic that were talking about here anyway, would be Israel celebrating her 70th anniversary. And then the US Embassy being moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. On her 70th anniversary and I this just blew my mind. Donald Trump actually came through with his promise, absolutely no sleeping in the land to sign up, leave it in start got prophetic clock moving again for the fact that you know America has been Israel's staunchest ally a really ever sent her rebirth in 1948 amine we have and always agree with Israel. We had some ups and downs with previous president, but I am grateful that our current president would honor that promise and ally ourselves once again and even better way with Israel and that you know things are happening really bring the focus back to Israel and I see these things, sort of like the birth pangs mean the baby is going to be born right now just tells you that the earth is really pregnant and that will waiting for these events to happen in some of these numbers that were feeling leading up to it. I think another indication of fact we truly are living in these and I just said skill that you Trump kept his selection promise, far more important than that is that God keeps his promises. And he said he bring them back brought them back a couple of times actually restore the language. I think it's the miracle story not of the 20th century, but of all time. Set rebirth of the nation of Israel.

But it all goes back to God, keeping his promises. He keeps his promise to the Christian as well.


And there's only one way really to explain Israel's rebirth that that there is a God, and there is a got a problem promises to Abraham back in Genesis 1215 and he is going to make good on all those promises that have not been filled yet and you got it made to us as believers think about this a lot and I went out on a cruise and we were so excited to go there and see all the destinations but you leading up to the crew on the website. I would look at the ship tour that would go to the destination to look at the vent patient looking for to what was going to get to experience. I think every true believer needs to do that with the Bible. The brochure is good but the destination is going to be even better.

Christians need to dive into the Bible prophecy so they complete, waiting for me this is what I have to look for to my God plan for me and all that really.yes we have a promise keeping God, not something we can really think another story. Once sold in 2018. I was intrigued just that. Nationalism was scorned and globalism was celebrated. Now, whether it was the European union obsession exit 2018 with the scoffing of the word nationalism ice.

I was watching globalism once again take center stage at the primary defender of nationalism has been Donald Trump and he knew the globalist mind back in 2016 when he won Europe is the epicenter of the globalist effort and I think France's Emmanuel McCrone is the primary spokesman for it. And if the price comes out of Europe then that continent I believe is preparing the way for him which you agree not absolutely agree with you knowing we like European common market at that time and in fact the treaty that Bayside was called the Treaty of Rome.

Anyway enough, but week we see the world converging in on itself will becoming more and more countries dependent interdependent upon one another. Nationalism really is being put to the back lot got you through like China related to Hitler and the top of nationalism he can't really be a patriot of your own country anymore.

You will be a world all things is really leading the world toward oneness. Think this background music if you will to put this in time to play it really setting up the antichrist up onto the global fleet will make it much easier for him in that day really grabbed the rain try to get all the separate countries already be primed keyed up to be a one world government. And so, yes, things are happening right now. Once again, I think this stage setting reality that will make prophecy take place absolutely closest to this day and age, states must be ready to give up sovereignty. Nationalist countries are not patriotic. Europe is just begging to enter into some sort of a globalist system, don't you think Jeff can one who's holding this back other than God is again America is not cooperating. At least not right now all of that could change in a future election 2020 2024. America may reelect another globalist Hillary Clinton is arts globalist, but had many Barack Obama the king of globalists and election certainly could erode the advances made by the current president nothing with that fact that you rapture herself. I think will be the event that will pull the rest of the world into this one will mind. And the reason for that because I think America, unlike any other nation has had mentioned before, not only right relationship with Israel supporting Israel throughout her birth also to the fact that America has done more for the gospel worldwide. So if even 10% of Americans are part believers 30 million people vanish from the planet from every strata fighting government and that alone will weaken. I believe America's role in the world, clean and enable this one will government to come together much more easily again and watching some of the signs of the times the stage setting is Jeff would call it in his book some stage setting activity going on 2018 big time and and Jeff would be the probably the foreshadowing of the tribulation birth pangs with some of the natural disasters which were truly apocalyptic throughout 2018. We watched heart wrenching photos and videos of unprecedented disasters at their foretaste of what will happen in the tribulation the time of Jacob's trouble is matter fact what's happened in recent years, probably pales in significance to what will happen in the tribulation and Roman groaning saying I think part of an overall effect on the planet and what it could be that man contribution or not it can be debatable, but the fact that the earth is really readying itself to receive Rapp and to receive judgment interesting.

We mentioned earlier about Jesus Christ returning his foot touching them out of all Zechariah. Tell them you know, NBC news reported in 2004, they found a major fault running through the Mount of olives inside the mall about preparing for the return of Christ. The whole world is waiting for that yet. The catastrophic climate changes that are going to happen during the tribulation will not be called by man puncturing the ozone layer surrounded by a holy God coming back to the liver who feel comfortable yes exactly like my closing segment. The short segment, but I did. Intrigued, Jeff and probably not in a good way like to talk a little bit about this because there's some verses in Scripture that talk about last days activity character behavior of mankind.

The obvious ones are second Timothy three Marie C about the decline character of man. Romans one is another passage were talks about the depravity of man. That's funny get them in the center. The last days and I'd like to unpack that for a few minutes to my closing segment and we've seen some behavior in the last year that is been just absolutely astounding and I think it would fall into one of these two categories talks we will do that when I come back and encourage you to not go away and also urge you to go to my website. Olive tree and check out the book that were talking about for two weekends.

I've talked about it uncovering the secrets of Bible prophecy. 10 keys for unlocking what Scripture really says that the author Jeff can on the line from me all the way from Arkansas for two weekends and I've read the book cover to cover and that's why chose to carry it. And there's so much we haven't talked about because you can't do it in the kind of time that I have on air each weekend, but were at least hitting Sam high points. I'll continue to do that when I get back.

Don't go away and never wrap up my two weekends with author Jeff can today's world we just don't hear enough about what God's word says about the end times. It seems people don't want to have to because we don't want to believe we are nearing the end Bible is clear and approaches our world resembled the days of Noah were totally unaware of what happened you want to keep people informed about the Bible says will have so programs like this kind of program is important to you.

However, at the end of the day.

Our ministry reminds everyone that God is in control and Jesus is coming back.

This is understanding times radio with Jan Markel but I want to tell you something as God uses men to advance his kingdom through the proclamation of the truth so the devil uses men to advance his cause against the kingdom of Christ.

When ever the kingdom is advancing its because the word of God is being proclaimed. You want to advance the kingdom proclaimed proclaimed proclaimed the attorney for the two-part conversation with Pastor Jeff Finley again. Jan Markel and we have spent a couple of weeks now I have any way with the author, Jeff can learn more Jeff and we carry the book uncovering the secrets of Bible prophecy. It's going to be carrying my print newsletter E newsletter sign up online. You can give us a call and if you do write to us and particularly if you're sending a year-end gift. Would you please tell us what stations you're listening to that helps us decide if we should stick with a certain station or network can program is posted to my website every Saturday olive tree olive tree We are very active on her Facebook page Jan Markel's olive tree ministries twitter olive tree men. I think for now were going to set aside any more announcements like that that do take time but I want to head into the winding up part two week series on the sort of things to come naturally been talking about. I morphed into a little bit into some of the stage, setting signs, Jeff can talks about those in the book as well Jeff there's one thing I do want to go back to what I taste about and that is this decline in the character of man before I go there quickly.

You give a couple of chapters in this book about the decline in the character of the church and the fact that a lot of false teaching and unsound doctrine raging through it. What I've seen in the last year, two, three, four years social justice taking over instead of Bible teaching.

Your thoughts please. I will chapter their spotting counterfeit fruit pop pop pop not going to suddenly arise out of nowhere during the end of the tribulation time of Jesus warned that happening right now we see people bending God's truth misrepresenting it, redefining the truth altogether to fit a current agenda a popular agenda agenda to take the church off course and hope more on social justice and helping people under the guise of what would Jesus do you know what the Bible say about foreigners and refugees, always thinking while there may be acts of kindness. We can certainly show people the church is to make disciples. That's the point of the church and so we have to make sure that whatever were doing. Jan is the focus in on the truth of God. So we twist those things, sometimes to the sort of a round peg into a square hole in the church today. We have to get back to Jesus taught. The early church, which was to preach the gospel church began. The trip exploded and if we get back to that now.

Who knows what, you soon will we deal with this program quite regularly. Jeff on some of these things and going haywire. That's the most frequent email I get is that I can't find a church right side. Everyone in town and they all tell me they're not looking for perfection but they just can't deal with some of the false doctrine, certainly not every church there is some holding to the truth, but in some towns they can find solid churches heartbreaking email that comes in regularly.

I want to go to what I taste within my last segment and that is I believe that there is an end time character of man that's going to decline and talks about that in second Timothy three talked about it in Romans one and as I've watched some activities this year 2018 now winding down. We've seen some massive election fraud. We've seen a Supreme Court nominee, Brett Cavanaugh, be falsely accused, all in the name of politics we seen which is cursed Judge Cavanaugh and Pres. Trump. We've seen that a literal demonic hatred for conservatives during the midterm election we've seen drag queens appearing more frequently and and always for children's events.

We've seen members of clergy blessing abortion mills now and Jeff. I'm sure some of this if they'd had abortion mills the time of Noah, if they'd had drag queens and maybe they did at the time of Noah.

I'm sure they were very popular but they're coming back absolutely and I don't know Scripture that more clearly describe our current age and culture than Romans chapter 1 God outlines in that chapter so beautifully about the progression of what happens to a person to a people group to a nation really that rejects the clear revelation of God through creation through our own conscience.

We see exactly what's happening in our own country because once once you reject the truth about God and it got dark and your mind and heart to be dark and you can't see what the truth that is you then make up your own reality.

And that's what happening with a lot of gender confusion. This going on people thinking they're not thinking they're in a 50-year-old man think he's a 10-year-old girl when you type God and God's truth out of the picture than the literally anything is up for grabs. And what's really sad is that society is really latching on the embracing this and now we're the ones who are being maligned and demonized because were simply stating the biological or scriptural truth about the matter goes down from their sexuality and live on down to being haters of God, instead of evil wall of anarchy all take place right now and I feared and it is going to get much worse as we ramp up to revelations day because of the depravity of the human depravity that we have thought all of us is not getting better season horses is continually being corrupted so to continue to happen in the world want to save time, Jeff Kinley, we've seen almost according to statistics almost 80% of Americans die into some kind of mystical New Age beliefs so with that strong delusion doctrine of demons not giving heed to sound doctrine. We sell paganism and witchcraft sword this year as well. I mean, it's now fashionable to believe in things that are seriously dangerous. We saw again were referencing which is cursing a Judge Cavanaugh cursing Pres. Trump in this this rise of things that are interested in the paranormal, the supernatural, never a good kind of supernatural interest is in the bad kind, just a reminder that the highly intelligent supernatural thing and not just randomly throwing darts, firing missiles.

Ephesians 6 that he had divine plan strategies and all of this worsening pipeline is a part of the overall global strategy for Satan to make people more susceptible to receive. Ultimately, the man of his choosing son of perdition the Antichrist during the tribulation.

In the meantime it anything to keep you from Jesus Christ Lamb of God, whether be New Age or whipped up for actual pleasure or whatever might be anything to distract you from the truth. The real redemption that you can find in Jesus take her eyes off for two weekends been talking about Jeff's newest book uncovering the secrets of Bible prophecy.

10 keys for unlocking what Scripture really says it's in my store. Olive trees to give us a call central time in the newsletter and Jeff we were talking a little bit off air that one of the reasons you wrote this book was part of it is to use it as a introductory tool, perhaps for people just now getting interested in this topic you want to reach out as does your publishing house. I had dinner with them in October they want to reach a younger generation.

Jeff, you and I traveled to prophecy conferences. The average age is over 60 at those events and it would be nice to get some younger folks and frankly, I am seeing some younger folks get more interested in how did this come to your mind. 25 years of being a pastor to students. The college student millennial the district teacher open-door opportunity that we have in that generation to teach them not just about biblical truth of the whole and typically people are simply trying to keep them interested. Keep them coming to church doing whatever dog and pony show that that happened in Janet when you reach them with solid biblical contest. The lights come on and they suddenly find something to think their teeth into because there there want to know God. So I wrote this book as a way to help reach even that generation, and even someone. Perhaps you know maybe a parent or grandparent site tool like this would be a great opportunity to learn about one stop what's coming, what's going to happen and wrote in the language. I hope the communication to them. Think it's imperative for us to always reach back to the next generation to make sure that we are passing the baton of the truth of God the faith of God and God to the next generation. If we fail to do that, then there won't be a next generation Christian. That's very true. I think that younger people have also says excuses for not going in this direction. I think many of them want to live there full life and quite frankly not have interrupted the rapture, the tribulation. I can understand that but nonetheless the glories of the future can't compare to what we have today and every time I've ever taught about topics to a younger generation is type in a wide sponges and so I really think you're probably more ready to receive it, then we are to give it to him.

But we have to make sure we give it common language make sense to some speaking that language and encourages so she can come out next fall.

Saturday, September 21 at my event, a mere society presents this to young people in a very brilliant way, an Israeli young man who I have featured now for this to be the fifth year coming up next fall. September 21 same location and tickets will go on sale. Not until next summer, folks. So were not even to go there with the whole lineup but is giving you a date for now because many of you are writing and asking about a date. Jeff and I think we need to emphasize the importance of salvation we want to keep people away from well the great white throne judgment. To be honest and how do they do that right now the program to encourage them to look around the world that you're living in, you will not getting better. Other good things are happening in the world world is coming out to closing time someone is aptly said, and assembly router to truth you need to know the one truth about God, God loves you, but that is also holy God that he sent his son Jesus Christ. Take the penalty laugh at you and I deserve on that cross. When Jesus died, and when we simply place faith in him we call upon the name of the Lord believe in the Lord Jesus Christ got applied that righteousness to your account. You have your sins forgiven destiny ticket punched going to heaven for sure and that you will all of the terrible wrath judgment that awaits those who reject Christ during the trip/wrongly urge you to listen to my work right now to call upon Jesus and be saved and you'll never regret. Folks the future may seem like one big mystery that it doesn't have to be made. His plans evident to all. And when you know what he has revealed.
