Complete Broadcast Script
Welcome to The Prophet Daniel’s Report. This is report #160. My name 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.
1. The government and big banks may be preparing for imminent financial collapse. According to The Economic Collapse Blog, recent actions by the United States seem to show that the government and big banks are anticipating a major financial meltdown. Last week, it was revealed that the U.S. government has been secretly directing five of the biggest banks in America “to develop plans for staving off collapse” for the last two years. Over the past 12 months, hundreds of banking executives have been resigning and corporate insiders have been selling off enormous amounts of stock. There have also been reports that the U.S. government has been stockpiling food and ammunition. Many financial experts expect that a big crash is coming, but no one is certain about how soon. Richard Duncan, an economist and former World Bank specialist, has warned that America’s fiscal debt could cause a depression so severe that he doesn’t “think our civilization could survive it.”
2. The Israeli prime minister says the Iranian threat dwarfs all others. According to The Associated Press, Prime Minister Netanyahu declared that Iranian nuclear weapons dwarf all other challenges the Jewish state faces as high-level hints of a possible Israeli attack on Iran’s suspect nuclear program mounted. One indirect indication came this week when Israel’s military began sending mock text messages to cellphones warning of incoming missiles, part of a nationwide experiment that is to reach hundreds of thousands of cellphone users.
3. Calls to create a Jewish section on the Temple Mount gain momentum. According to Israel National News, calls to create a partition between two sections of the Temple Mount, one for Jewish use and the other for Muslims, are gaining momentum, as police prepare to close off the Mount to Jews for five straight days. The Israel Police intend to deny Jews entry to the Mount supposedly because Muslims are holding celebrations there marking the end of Ramadan. Temple organizations said they wanted Jews to have more access to the holy site.
The Bible says in I Thessalonians 5:3: “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.”

Now, it’s time for Prophecy Bootcamp.
Prophecy Bootcamp is where we deal with the basics of prophecy, the Second Coming of Christ, 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.
Our topic for today is titled “The Destruction of the Nations (Part 2)” from Dr. John MacArthur’s book “The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ”:
The problem of the nations is stated simply and concisely in Psalm 2:1-2: “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed…” There’s the problem. The world is living in rebellion against God. Not only is our world full of idealogical atheists who think there is no God, but it is full of practical atheists who live as if there were no God. Men are living in the world, apart from the standards that God has set.
In rejecting God, the nations rejected the Word of God — and the ship of humanity cut off its anchor. The rejection of Scripture, you see, is the rejection of all God’s solutions to all men’s problems. And once the solutions are rejected, unrest results.
In closing, let’s consider what God wants you and I to do in light of His Second Coming.
Jesus Christ said in Luke 19:13 to “Occupy till I come.”
God wants us to be faithful witnesses for Him in the last days. We should be engaged in spreading the Gospel to those around us. In light of that, please listen to the following from William Fay, author of “Share Jesus Without Fear”:
Today’s topic is titled “5 Important Questions (Part 3)”
The third important question is, “Do you believe Jesus died on the cross for you and rose again?” This is a key element in anyone’s decision because the cross is central to the gospel. For as your friend read in Romans 10:9–11, it is with the heart that man believes and with the heart a man is justified and with the mouth a man confesses.
The fourth important question is, “Are you willing to surrender your life to Jesus Christ?” This is a very important question. I’m always concerned about the possibility I might lead someone to make a decision before he or she understands the need to count the cost. Jesus always encouraged people to count the cost. He said in Luke 14:27–28, “And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?”
Thank goodness that Jesus forgives us through his perfection, not ours. Even so, we need to be sure our friends and family members know they choose to receive God’s love, and they must choose to serve him willingly. We must not lead our friends into an easy faith that does not change their hearts or their lives.
We will continue looking at these questions in our next broadcast.
Now, if you are listening to this broadcast and you do not know Jesus Christ as your saviour, God wants you to receive Jesus Christ before He returns.
Please understand that you are a sinner and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Please also understand that because of your sins, you deserve eternal punishment in hell. Romans 6:23 says “the wages of sin is death…” This is both physical death and spiritual death in hell. Now, that is the bad news.
But here is the good news. John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
This verse is telling us that despite our sinfulness, God loved us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to suffer and die on the cross for your sins and mine. After He died on the cross, He was buried and rose again. Now, all you have to do is believe in Him, trust in Him and have faith in Him for your salvation. If you do so, you will not suffer eternal punishment in hell, but you will live eternally in Heaven with God.
The Bible also 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.”
Dear friend, if you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.
If you just made that decision to trust Christ as your Saviour, and you meant that prayer from your heart, I am here to tell you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved and you are on your way to Heaven. Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is trusting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!

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.
