Not Afraid to Tell the Truth

Book_Cover

http://www.livingtruthministry.com/productsservices/my-new-book

The authors attempt is to restore the "dispensational safety net" to Bible believing Churches and members of the "Body of Christ" that have become confused by false or deceived teachers and the growing numbers of anti-dispensationalists that have come in among the true brethren unawares, ignorant of the Believer's present heavenly position in the risen, ascended, and glorified Lord Jesus Christ. These teachers by not having rightly divided the Word of Truth have come in to many Evangelical Churches teaching the principles of the gospel of the Kingdom and not the gospel of the Grace of God as delivered to the Apostle Paul which are the directed teachings for the Church in this age of Grace. (1 Cor. 15: 3-5).

Jimmy DeYoung's News Update
  • In light of the mass murder in the church in South Texas, is it Biblically correct for Christians to arm themselves for protection
    Listen to Today's Program Play

    JD: Can a Biblical case be made for believers arming themselves and actually using deadly force if necessary?

    DJ: Well I think there are a couple of things to consider. One, if you go to Luke chapter 22 we find that Jesus in talking to his disciples about what things are going to be like after he is gone in his absence and he says in verse 36 of Luke 22, but now he who has a money bag let him take it and like wise a nap sack and he who has no sword let him sell his garment and buy one. And they pointed out that they actually had a couple of swords among them. So, we find the disciples themselves were carrying swords and Peter as I mentioned earlier he was carrying a sword as well.

    And another thing as far as the going back to Romans 13 the United States Constitution the Second Amendment provides under right circumstances that citizens can carry weapons and so they’re actually even private citizens become an extension under God’s sovereign establishment of government to carry weapons. So actually private citizens become an extension of the government. 

    So, I think there are multiple reasons that we can argue for this. And I one thing also to remember as far as participating in this remember this, even Jesus himself when he returns he is going to carry out, he will command the greatest army and fight and win the fiercest battle that has ever been fought on this planet against the forces of evil at the end of the tribulation period. And actually believers of all ages will be joining him with that. It’s not that we’re looking forward to that in the sense of lithely looking for battle and to kill people but it is a part of Biblical history that is yet to be fulfilled.

    JD: David James with that Biblical report on Christians arming themselves for the purpose of protecting themselves.

    We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

    With the threat of both domestic and foreign terrorism the Christian world is thinking through the issue whether they should arm themselves to protect the people and the church facility unlike that which has been the case in the past.

    David James laid out an excellent explanation of the Biblical approach to the issue. The last thought that David had about Jesus leading the battle of Armageddon was very important. This future prophetic event will bring an end to the satanic power that is in this world, that’s Revelation 19:11-21. And that then sets up this world for the Lord’s earthly kingdom to come into place, Revelation 20:4, 5, and 6.  
  • Almost three-quarters of the Israeli Jews say that they want the right to pray on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem
    Listen to Today's Program Play

    JD: Sixty-eight percent of all Israeli’s, that’s about two-thirds and almost three-quarters of the Israeli’s want the right to be able to pray on the Temple Mount and that the Temple Mount should be under the sovereignty of Israel. What are your thoughts?

    DD: Well again Jimmy three thousand years ago that became the holiest site on earth for the Jewish people when Solomon built the Temple up there after Gods command. A thousand five hundred years the Moslems have claimed it for half that time. But, the Jews are back after a long exile. This is the center of their faith, the center of their world and they’re not going to give it up, and they should be able to pray up there.

    JD: David Dolan with the details on the story about almost three-quarters of all the Jews wanting the right to be able to pray on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

    We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

    For over three thousand years Jews have been praying on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It’s clear however that these Jews for the last two thousand years have not been praying at the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. That Temple, the second Temple was destroyed by the Roman Army in 70 AD.

    The Bible does call for Jews to pray three times per day and they are to face where the previous Temples stood as they pray. It is not only a right they have but it is a command from God that they must pray facing towards the Temple Mount if they are not in the city of Jerusalem and of course without a Temple on the Temple Mount it’s difficult to follow through with the command of God. But from where ever they are around the world three times a day a Jew is to face towards Jerusalem towards the Temple Mount and pray unto the Lord.

    However, the need for the Temple to be there and to focus on at their prayer times is still very much in the hearts of many Jewish people. In fact, a group the Temple Institute have been working to prepare to rebuild that Temple. They followed all the directions in God’s word. And by the way where those Temples stood the next two Temples will stand one day as well. That would be the Tribulation Temple and Messiah’s Temple.

    Since the Temple Mount is the center of controversy Zechariah 12:2, it will be difficult for the Jews to rebuild that next Temple. The Tribulation Temple, that’s the next Temple is ready to be rebuilt as it is called for in Bible prophecy which would be Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24:15, and Revelation 11:12.  
  • The phrase, "Allah Akbar" that is shouted by Islamic terrorist, has a different meaning then what it reported in the main stream media
    Listen to Today's Program Play

    JD: The word Allah Akbar seems to be used when these terrorists go into churches or for example when the man in New York City drove a truck into a bunch of cyclist on a pedestrian street there in New York City they would yell Allah Akbar. Now I have always thought that Allah Akbar was defined Allah is great but I understand that what it really is translated to mean Allah is the greatest. In other words they want to get rid of anyone that opposes the Islamic faith. Am I correct on that definition and is that why they’re yelling this out every time they do a terrorist attack?

    SH: Dr. DeYoung you are absolutely correct and it is some times frustrating when you see the media use that term and constantly translate it as just simply well they’re just saying God is great. Allah Akbar always always has meant the word Akbar itself means above the highest or the greatest. So, it is a chance of dominance. It is why they are doing it. In Islam they call it the tacked fear. It’s what Moslems do even during their prayer time where they have to say the tacked fear. It’s a chance of supremacy because Allah is the greatest according to what they are saying. And that’s why it is consistently shouted when there is a Jihadi attack when there is an attack that is as you defined would be terrorism it is consistently shouted and it is consistently a sign that they are saying they are being victorious. And we don’t seem to understand that and we want to minimize it by saying oh they’re just saying their God is great and that’s just not the accurate translation.

    So, thank you for bringing that up because that is something we have to change in our terminology so that we can accurately depict what is happening.

    JD: Shahram Hadian born in Iran and now a Christian leader here in America with the true meaning of the phrase Allah Akbar.

    We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

    Islamic nations play a key role in the prophetic scenario that is found in Bible prophecy. Those passages of scripture would be Daniel 11, Ezekiel 38, and Psalm 83 where these nations are listed.

    The call to victory Allah Akbar is actually saying that the Islamic God is the greatest of all Gods which is Biblically incorrect. The God of the Bible is the only true God that is all-powerful, the greatest and the Biblical God that will defeat the Islamic God as foretold in Ezekiel 38:18-39:6. 
  • Lebanon and Saudi Arabia are in a conflict that could lead to an all out war in the Middle East
    Listen to Today's Program Play

    JD: Lebanon for example the Prime Minister Hariri has resigned but he did it not from Lebanon he did it in Saudi Arabia and there are questions as to whether he is being held captive there. What do you know about this?

    KT: Jimmy I don’t know of any other case where a Prime Minister has fled the country to resign. He has always had close ties to the Saudis. The fact that he would resign in a press conference in Saudi Arabia instead of in Lebanon shows one of two things either he really is under house arrest as some people have suggested or he was so afraid of an Iranian threat to murder him that he decided to leave the country.  

    JD: Saudi Arabians are making the statement that Lebanon has declared war on the kingdom.

    KT: That’s correct and they said that after the Hariri resignation announcement. We’re getting very very close to an open hot war between Saudi Arabia and Iran, that’s what’s going on here. Right after Saad Hariri announced his resignation Iranian’s launched a missile against the airport at Riyadh. They did it from Houthi control Yemen but the Iranians control the missile launchers. The Saudi’s managed to intercept the missiles and destroy it. That is an act of war and it’s an amazing event. So, I think we’re really getting very close to a hot war between Iran and Saudi Arabia.

    There is a behind the scenes agreement between the Saudi’s and Israel where they will work together against Hezbollah and against Iran. So, you could have in this hot war between Iran and Saudi Arabia you could have Israel working with the Saudi’s against Hezbollah in Lebanon. This is a very different Middle East then it was 20 years ago Jimmy.

    JD: Ken Timmerman with the details behind the potential war between Lebanon and the Saudis.

    We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

    The Middle Eastern nation of Lebanon is very unstable right now because of the presence of Islamic control radical terrorist organization Hezbollah which is located there in Southern Lebanon. The resignation of the Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri while in Saudi Arabia has caused some great concern. It may indicate there is bad blood between these two Middle Eastern nations.

    The Saudi’s have gone as far as to say that Lebanon has declared war with Saudi Arabia. Psalm 83:6 & 7 mentions both of these Middle Eastern nations in an end game scenario that will be played out in the future. The Ishmaelite’s in verse 6 would be Saudi Arabia and verse 7 mentions Tyre which today Lebanon.

    The end game of this prophecy is focused on the destruction of Israel but right now the Saudis and Lebanese are in a conflict.
