Welcome to The Prophet Daniel’s Report. This is Daniel Whyte III here to remind you that Jesus Christ is coming back soon and that you need to be prepared. This broadcast is not about predictions, however it is all about preparation.
First, today, let’s look at some Signs of His Coming in the news.
The disciples asked Jesus in Matthew 24:3, “What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” Jesus Christ then went on to give them (and us) clear signs that show us when we can begin to expect to see the coming of the Lord and the end of the world. Looking at world events through the lens of the Word of God, let’s look at some headlines from today’s news that point to the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Ehud Barak makes it clear that Israel never ruled out attacking Iran. According to the Associated Press, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Tuesday his country has never promised the United States it would hold off from attacking Iran while nuclear talks were taking place. The comments, in which Barak said that a diplomatic push to reach a compromise with Iran was a waste of “precious time,” further exposed a rift between Israel and the U.S. over how to deal with Iran and its nuclear program. “We are not committing to anything,” Barak told Israel’s Army Radio. “The dialogue with the Americans is both direct and open.”
North Korea vows retaliatory actions. According to the AFP, North Korea has warned of retaliation after the US scrapped food aid over its rocket launch, raising fears of a new nuclear test, as China reportedly suspended a refugee deal with its wayward ally. In a defiant statement late Tuesday, the nuclear-armed North said it was no longer bound by a bilateral agreement to halt testing of nuclear weapons and long-range missiles after Washington suspended much-needed food aid. Its foreign ministry accused Washington of hostile acts and said, “We have thus become able to take necessary retaliatory measures, free from the agreement.”
Syrian Forces Widen Attacks as Cease-Fire Unravels. According to Voice of America News, Syrian forces widened their attacks on opposition strongholds as an advance team of international observers worked to broaden its mission in the country. Rights groups and activists say at least two people were killed in violence on Tuesday. They say forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad continued shelling in the central Homs region and in the northwestern Id-lib province, in spite of a cease-fire that took effect six days ago. The agreement, brokered by international envoy Kofi Annan, calls for government forces and the opposition to stop attacks. Annan is in Doha on Tuesday to brief the Arab League on Syria.
The Bible says in Matthew 24:6, “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”

Now, it’s time for Prophecy Bootcamp.
Prophecy Bootcamp is where we deal with the basics of prophecy and what will happen in the future according to the Bible. Our aim here is not to make predictions but to help you get prepared by understanding how things will unfold in the end times.
Today we are addressing the question “What will be judged at the Judgment Seat of Christ?” from John MacArthur’s book “The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.” MacArthur writes the following on this subject.
At the judgment seat, Christ is going to judge…
1. …Our motives. There are some people who have done a lot of good works, but they did them all for the wrong reasons. Whatever is done out of legalism is disqualified. God judges our motives. In I Corinthians 4:5 it says that God is going to “bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the councils of the heart.”
2. …Our conduct. Paul tells us in II Corinthians 5:10 that we are going to be rewarded for the things done in the body.
3. …Our service. I Corinthians 3:13 says that “every man’s work will be made manifest.”
Every feature of our Christian life is going to be exposed to see whether it has eternal value and is worthy of reward.
In closing, let’s consider what God wants you and I to do in light of His Second Coming.
God wants us to share the message of the Gospel with those around us. In light of that, we are at part 2 of our series titled ‘Sharing Your Faith in the Workplace’.
According to S. Michael Houdmann:
One reason why we should share our faith in the workplace is because our duty as Christians demands it. If we have been redeemed by Christ, then we have been given something that is not our own. Without God’s grace we would be lost for all eternity. Chances are most of us came to faith and salvation because someone shared with us; how can we then not do the same for others? Jesus said that as we have freely received, we should freely give. We have been entrusted by God to be His messengers to the lost.
An attitude of heartfelt gratitude is one of the many things that mark a true believer in Jesus Christ. The more we honestly examine the depravity of our own hearts, the more we recognize how great is the forgiveness that was and is extended to us, and the more we are thankful to God for redeeming us. This thankfulness expresses itself in giving Him credit for what He has done for us—that which we could not do for ourselves. The best way we can thank God is to give Him all the glory for what He has done for us and tell others of His great love and mercy.
Now, if you are listening to this broadcast and you do not know Jesus Christ as your saviour, God wants you to accept Jesus Christ before He returns. The Bible says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Friend of mine, if you are willing to trust Christ as your Savior today, please pray with me the following prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Amen.
Remember the words of the Lord in Matthew 24:42: “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.”
Matthew 24:44 says, “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”
Keep looking up for your redemption draweth nigh. Let us join in the prayer of John the Revelator — “Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” God bless you.
