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
  • The birthday for the Church is on a Jewish Feast Day
    Listen to Today's Program Play

    JD: You know David I thought it would be good for us to take a moment and talk about the Feast of Pentecost and its significance for the church.

    DJ: The law was given to the nation of Israel as they were on their way to receive the promised land and it would function as the constitution for this newly redeemed people of God. Then in acts 2 on the day of Pentecost some 1,500 years after the first one a new people of God came into existence when the spirit of God came to baptize believers into the body of Christ and permanently indwell them and so form the church. And so the day of Pentecost marks the birthday of the church and so it's a very important day.

    JD: We've talked about the church beginning on the Feast of Pentecost and some say that because of this the Rapture will also occur on a Jewish Feast day on the Feast of Trumpets for example. David, what are your thoughts on this?

    DJ: Well I wouldn't hold that view for several reasons and I know that you don't either. First I would say that it could happen on the Feast of Trumpets but only because it could happen on any given day. This is the doctrine of eminence and that means the Rapture could happen at any moment because no prophecies must be fulfilled before it takes place. I think this is the main reason why the Rapture doesn't have to happen on the Feast of Trumpets as well. If the Rapture must happen on the Feast of Trumpets then that means there are 364 days in every year when it couldn't happen. So it wouldn't be imminent.

    And another reason would be that the Feast of Trumpets is for Israel and God won't be dealing with Israel again until Daniel's 70th week which begins with the antichrist confirming the treaty of Daniel chapter 9. Because it will take some time after the Rapture of the church for the antichrist to rise to power over the Revived Roman Empire. On the other hand I do think that Christ will actually return to the Earth on the Feast of Trumpets as the first of the fulfillment of the three fall Feasts yet to come.

    JD: David James with his Bible in his hand explaining how the birthday for the church actually happened on a Jewish Feast day.

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

    As we look at Biblical history we can see that God has a plan for the Jews and for the church. He has separate plans for each of His people. In the past the Lord gave seven Feast days to the Jews. These seven holy days were given to the Jews so that they could recognize that Jesus Christ was the Jewish Messiah. This is because He fulfilled the first four Feast in His death, burial, and resurrection and then He brought these two people together in the Feast of Pentecost. In the future the Lord will bring them together once again on the Feast of Trumpets when the Messiah comes back to Earth.
  • The Jewish Feast Day of Pentecost is the day that marks God's giving to the Jewish people the first five books of the Bible
    Listen to Today's Program Play

    JD: Pentecost is one of the seven Jewish Feasts from Leviticus 23 isn't it?

    WM: It is Jimmy, according to the Biblical rendition on the morrow or the day after the Passover festival there began a count of fourth nine days of seven weeks for what we call the Omer, the barley if I'm not mistaken its translated to in English, which would then be brought to the Temple. That became connected to the day that Mt. Sinai and the giving of the Torah from God to Moses and on to the people of Israel occurred.

    JD: Well its a very interesting historic background. The giving of the Torah, the Torah actually the first five books of Genesis which is basically referring to the law. That was given traditionally at Mt. Sinai when Moses got there after starting to lead the Jewish people towards the promised land correct?

    WM: Yes, the Jewish tradition is that he received the tablets of the law in which the Ten Commandments were inscribed by God Himself. The first tablets as we know were broken because the children of Israel were a bit impatient. They were looking for some sort of substitute for Moses and God who disappeared to them. Then the second tablets were brought down and then Moses remained up in order to study with God as we believe the 613 commandments and then a learning process took place after that. So this is the fundamental aspect of the holiday of Shavuot that seven weeks after we left Egypt we were brought out of Egypt as slaves to become free men and to accept upon those willingly a new religion and from there to continue to march onto the land of Israel.

    JD: Winkie Medad giving us the details behind the historical event of God's giving of the Torah, the first five books of the Bible to the Jewish people.

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

    God's gift of the Torah to the Jewish people is key for the understanding of the Lord's prophetic scenario for all of us today. Genesis chapters 1-12 actually contains the foundational passages for all of Biblical doctrine and the foundation for all prophetic passages found in the entire Bible. Pentecost should remind all of us to study the Bible to come to an understanding of God's plan for the future.
  • Another Christian Statesman has gone to be with the Lord in the heavenlies
    Listen to Today's Program Play

    JD: This last week one of our dear friends Paul Bubar finished his race here on this earth and graduated to heaven. So I thought that it would be great for us to spend some of our time together this week talking about this great man of God.

    DJ: Well Paul entered the presence of the Lord at 87 years old and was definitely a uniquely gifted man of God who served the Lord with Word of Life Fellowship for around six decades in a number of key roles over the years. Back in August Paul suffered a severally debilitating stroke just a few days before his daughter's wedding. Then she and her new husband and Paul's wife and others cared for him over these past 9 months in Florida, as they were never able to return to their home near Word of Life in the Adirondack of New York State.

    JD: Paul had a fruitful, a long ministry and we praise the Lord how the Lord used Paul Bubar over the years.

    David I think it's important for us to take time to do these kinds of tributes when these giants of the faith in their journey here on earth head to the heavenlies. It makes me wonder about who will come behind them in the next generation.

    DJ: Well Jimmy I share your concern. As you and I were talking on the phone about this it occurred to me that a lot of these great men we've lost over the last few years had really already established themselves as theologians, scholars, and or ministry leaders by the time they were in their 40s and early 50s. We desperately need some theologically conservative guys with vision and passion and drive who are willing to step up to the plate. Who will be the next generation of great theologians, Bible teachers, and evangelist, pastors and missionaries, authors, and ministry leaders the possibilities are unlimited. I'm also encouraged because I've traveled around the world and taught the next generation for years. I've been able to connect to some younger guys and so I honestly hope there are more younger guys out there maybe even a few listening to us right now who are willing to say to the Lord I'll do anything, anywhere, anytime at any cost.

    JD: David James with a tribute to Paul Bubar, a Christian statesman who recently went to be forever with his Lord in the heavenlies.

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

    It was an honor for Dave and me to spend a few moments discussing the life and ministry of a great Christian statesman, my friend Paul Bubar. I believe that we should honor those who have served the Lord for so many years and that explains the life and ministry of Paul Bubar. This report reminds me of the apostle Paul's last exhortation in II Timothy 4. Paul said preach the word in season and out of season. In other words preach the word all the time, any place, and under any circumstance.
  • Iran wants to destroy America as well as Israel
    Listen to Today's Program Play

    JD: Iran's security forces have dedicated their existence to try to destroy the United States of America. What do we know about that?

    KT: Well they have done that and then from the very beginning. Remember the event that cemented the advent of this Islamic regime into Tehran was the ceasing of the US embassy into Tehran on November 4, 1979. From the very beginning they have used America. They have been targeting America and been using America to mobilize the pro Islamic forces inside Iran to get them to work together with this Islamic regime. They're doing that through terrorist attacks, through taking hostages in the 1980s. Today they have proxy forces, Hezbollah in Lebanon. So they have proxy fighters in Yemen in Iraq and in Syria who are doing their best to strike at American forces or American allies. This remains the goal of the Islamic regime in Tehran, the big Satan and the little Satan.

    And by the way that poster that you mentioned where Ayatollah Khamenei talks about the final solution with Israel that is not just an accidental term of a phrase. That is absolutely an appeal to Adolf Hitler. It is an appeal to what Hitler did in World War II. It is an appeal to Genoside and this Jimmy has always been what anti-Semites around the world do. They appeal to Hitler. You see this in the Palestinians territories as well on Palestinian tv. They have been doing this ever since World War II. It's all of a piece. It's very coherent and it's not accident that they always use the language of the Nazis.

    JD: Ken Timmerman explaining the Iranian threat to America, the big Satan, as well as the threat to destroy Israel, the little Satan.

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

    Ken's report gave us the history of the Iranian threat to destroy America. It also made the connection between Hitler and Nazism to Iran's motivation to destroy the big Satan, the United States of America, and the little Satan, the Jewish state of Israel.

    Iran is driven by its satanic religion and its satanic eschatology. Iran's Mahdi its Islamic Messiah is a personage of Satan, a satanically energized being, that's Revelation 13:2.

    Hitler wanted to kill all Jews. Iran also wants to rid this world of the Jewish people however, God will not allow that to happen.
