Thank you Pastor JD
Isaiah 51:7-8 KJVS
Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.
 For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be for ever, and my salvation from generation to generation.
Time is so near. Thankyou Pastor JD Farag

Pastor JD Farag
And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things. And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
Recognize that the Old Testament is all about Jesus Christ. The grand design of the Triune God is to reveal Christ at exactly the right time in His story. The truth and power of God comes alive in Jesus, the living Word. Who else could “open their minds so that they could understand the Scriptures”? Again, I say to you – be encouraged! When you believe in Christ you are “clothed with power from on high”; that is the Holy Spirit. He works always to convict and transform your heart for Christ and articulates your salvation for His glory.

Jeremiah 18:6 KJV
O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord . Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.
18:6 As the potter molded or shaped a clay pot on the potter’s wheel, defects often appeared. The potter had power over the clay, to permit the defects to remain or to reshape the pot. Likewise, God had power to reshape the nation to conform to his purposes. Our strategy should not be to become mindless and passive—one aspect of clay—but to be willing and receptive to God’s impact on us. As we yield to God, he begins reshaping us into valuable vessels.
Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.
You read that right, tombs opened and people who were dead came out of their graves upon Jesus’ resurrection. Think about what that must have been like. The fabric of creation seizes as Christ releases His spirit. In this moment, you cannot deny who He is. Five things that virtually never happen, all happen in the same moment. Creation itself is crying out in response to what has taken place. At this moment, the moment where Christ says, “it is finished”, all hell breaks loose. The severe depth of this moment is lost on me. The impact though is timeless and life bringing. Death’s hold on us through sin is forever compromised, shattered by the power of what Jesus has done. Light has broken through the darkness and invites us to come.
Leviticus 20:7 KJV
Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God.
Sanctify : to make (something) holy
- Make clean
- Set apart. (Keep the dirty dishes apart from the clean dishes. You put your clean dishes in the cabinet. You put dirty dishes in the sink or dishwasher. They are kept apart.)
