“Reasons for the Wrath” (Daniel 12, PART 2)

“Tomorrow’s News: What Moves You?”

A powerful study of Daniel’s prophecy of the Great Tribulation at the world’s end. But why did God reveal this to humanity? For us to be informed? Or is it for a much greater purpose? (Daniel 11, PART 4)

“Tomorrow’s News: The Devil’s Endgame”

God gave Daniel a glimpse of the “times of the end”, to be passed along to the Jewish people, and eventually to us.

“Tomorrow’s News: Israel and the Antichrist” (Daniel 11, PART 2)

Of the 135 prophesies in Daniel 11, most were precisely fulfilled over 2100 years ago. But a few remain—by far the most chilling—reserved for the end of history as we know it. Why did God revealed these events? The answer is electrifying—and a blessing. (Part 2)

“A Look Back at Tomorrow’s News” (Daniel 11, PART 1)

“Spiritual War and the Fate of America” (Daniel 10, PART 2)

What’s happening in America—in the world for that matter— is far more than a culture war—it’s the symptom of a dangerous conflict between holy angels and the demons of hell fought in another dimension of reality—happening now—happening all around us. The question is, what can be done about it? This message is riveting study that unmasks perhaps the church’s greatest strength—and weakness.

“Daniel, Jacob and Jesus: Wrestling Match with God” (Daniel 10, PART 1)

“Daniel’s 70th Week: Abomination in The Tribulation Temple” (Daniel 9, PART 5)

Prophecy Update: In Bible prophecy, numbers are language—God uses them to simplify what He wants us to “know and understand”. So—what about those “70 weeks” that Gabriel told Daniel? Simple, terrifying, glorious. Much more than about the “70 weeks”—this update might leave you breathless…!

 

Special Audio Supplement (below): Daniel prophesied that in the Last Days the Jewish Temple would be rebuilt—but where? The Jews are intent on putting it back on the Temple Mount—which could cause another world war. Today, however, many Christians say that history got it wrong—that the original site was elsewhere and the Temple Mount was actually the Roman Antonia Fortress. Here are my thoughts on the controversy (read from Pastor Jay’s essay, The Controversy of the Jewish Temple Location, which you can also read HERE).

What provoked God to exile His people to Babylon for 70 years? Daniel, Jeremiah and Moses knew—and it’s the key that opens the door to one of the most stunning Messianic End-Times prophecies in all of Scripture. Stay Tuned…

“Specter of the Antichrist” (Daniel 8, PART 2)

(PART 2) Before Jesus returns, the Bible says the Antichrist will ravage the world. But the Bible also tells us what he’s like in specific terms—that he’s a master deceiver and that God doesn’t want the world—or the Jewish people—to confuse this ‘Beast’ with His Son. And Daniel’s visions are the key… (Includes Afghanistan-in-Prophecy update)

“Shadow of the Antichrist” (Daniel 8, PART 1)

Before Jesus returns, the Antichrist will afflict the world—the Bible says so. But the Bible also tells us what he’s like in specific terms—that he’s a master deceiver and that God doesn’t want the world—or the Jewish people—to confuse this ‘Beast’ with His Son. And Daniel’s visions are the key…

“Daniel’s Night at the Zoo” (PART 2)

Daniel was a man who couldn’t be cancelled—and for good reason. Who knows? —for the same reasons people thousands of years from now may be praising God for you, too…

“Daniel’s Night at the Zoo” (Part 1)

A mighty king was tricked into condemning Daniel for doing what he did every day for last 70 years—praying to God and living a life of integrity. It was politics it its most insidious and lethal—until God showed up again. The lessons here are life-altering and powerful—and more relevant than ever. Listen carefully… Pastor Jay | Daniel 6, Part 1

 

“What Would God Write on Your Wall?”
