Welcome to The Prophet Daniel’s Report. This is report #161. 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. Iran proposes a military alliance of Muslim countries. According to Trend Magazine, Iranian Defense Minister Ah-mad Va-hi-di said it is necessary to create a military alliance of Muslim countries in order to repel an attack on Muslim countries, as well as to protect the Palestinian people. At a meeting of the ministry of defense, he stated, “If a strong and strategic alliance of Muslim countries in order to protect the Palestinian land is created, then the ‘Zionist regime’ will have no choice but to bow to the Palestinian people.”
2. It is reported that a Russian attack submarine has secretly operated in the Gulf of Mexico. According to The Washington Free Beacon, a Russian nuclear-powered attack submarine armed with long-range cruise missiles operated undetected in the Gulf of Mexico for several weeks and its travel in strategic U.S. waters was only confirmed after it left the region. The stealth underwater incursion in the Gulf took place at the same time Russian strategic bombers made incursions into restricted U.S. airspace near Alaska and California in June and July. U.S. officials said, the fact that the submarine was not detected in the Gulf is cause for concern.
3. West Nile virus outbreak in the U.S. leads to 16 deaths. According to The Los Angeles Times, Texas officials have declared a state of emergency after the West Nile virus infected at least 381 people, killing at least 16. An unusually warm winter and rainy spring in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and elsewhere in Texas has provided ideal conditions for breeding mosquitoes which are West Nile carriers. In Houston alone, about 95% of tested mosquitoes are carrying the virus.
The Bible says in Matthew 24:6-8: “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. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

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 3)” from Dr. John MacArthur’s book “The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ”:
I believe the turmoil that we’re seeing in our day is coming to a boiling point, possibly signifying that the end is very near. The nations reject God, Christ, and the Bible, and the result is chaos everyplace. Through all of this turmoil, unrest, and chaos, the stage is being set for a one-world government which will end all of the chaos…temporarily. There is coming a great worldwide government that is going to unify the world and bring about a superficial peace.
There’s coming a man who will rule every nation. The Bible says that he will devour the whole earth under his rule. There will be unification and a superficial peace for a troubled world. But let me tell you something: It won’t last long! The Bible says that all of this unification and peace is only going to last a few years, and then end in a world war called Armageddon. All of the nations which exist for a little while in peace, are going to tear into each other in a war like no other war in the history of the world. That war will be ended the return of Jesus Christ who, at that time, will destroy the nations in judgment for their sin.
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 4)”
The fifth and final most important question is, “Are you ready to invite Jesus into your life and into your heart?” Scripture says in John 1:12, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.”
When you think of question 5, I want you to think of the words “silence” and “pray”. Now as gently as I can, I want you to realize the dynamics that are taking place. The Holy Spirit is working in this one’s heart. The angels are rooting for you. The Word of God is applying pressure to this one’s very bone and marrow. You, my friend, need to sit in stark silence. Ten seconds of silence to someone under conviction of the power of the Holy Spirit feels like ten minutes. I have seen beads of sweat break out on foreheads as I’ve waited. But the battle is not with you or me. The battle is with God and his Word. My job, like yours, is to simply take the pages of Scripture, have someone read them out loud, and say, “What does this say to you?” Soon you will ask, “Are you ready to invite Jesus into your heart and into your life?”
When you ask this final question, be silent and pray.
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.
