Response To Youtube Censorship
RESPONSE TO YOUTUBE CENSORSHIP: As you may know, Youtube recently removed our latest Bible Prophecy Update “Decision Time.” This video can be viewed on our website here: JDFarag 14
It’s for this very reason that in anticipation of this, we sensed the Lord would have us launch Phase 1 of our website last year. Proverbs 22:3 says, “The prudent see evil ahead and take refuge, but the naive continue on and suffer the consequences.” While we are neither surprised nor shaken by this, we do covet your prayers for discernment as to how the Lord would have us navigate through this. We remain steadfast in our efforts to continue providing avenues of bringing Pastor JD”s teachings to you.
This is why we are asking you to signup on JDFarag.org 6 if you haven’t already.
The purpose of our website is to be the “go-to” for all of Pastor JD’s prophecy updates and more. Our plan is to develop this site in phases, and currently we are in Phase 1. As new phases are rolled out, we pray that this site will be a blessing and encouragement to you and others. We very much appreciate your patience with us as we move forward in making this website the primary destination for all of Pastor JD’s content. Please continue to connect with us on the social platforms below but rely on our website as your main source of Pastor JD’s content.

He has already lost.
Carolyn Arends, at CT, tells the story of a missionary who told this story of a snake and how it serves us an image of the defeat of the devil. There are many today who think satan and demons are the beliefs of pre-moderns, and yet there are others who find devils behind every door … but the gospel message is one of the defeat of the powers of evil and satan, so her words can be a good reflection for us today.
One day, they told us, an enormous snake—much longer than a man—slithered its way right through their front door and into the kitchen of their simple home. Terrified, they ran outside and searched frantically for a local who might know what to do. A machete-wielding neighbor came to the rescue, calmly marching into their house and decapitating the snake with one clean chop.
The neighbor reemerged triumphant and assured the missionaries that the reptile had been defeated. But there was a catch, he warned: It was going to take a while for the snake to realize it was dead.
A snake’s neurology and blood flow are such that it can take considerable time for it to stop moving even after decapitation. For the next several hours, the missionaries were forced to wait outside while the snake thrashed about, smashing furniture and flailing against walls and windows, wreaking havoc until its body finally understood that it no longer had a head.
Sweating in the heat, they had felt frustrated and a little sickened but also grateful that the snake’s rampage wouldn’t last forever. And at some point in their waiting, they told us, they had a mutual epiphany.
I leaned in with the rest of the congregation, queasy and fascinated. “Do you see it?” asked the husband. “Satan is a lot like that big old snake. He’s already been defeated. He just doesn’t know it yet. In the meantime, he’s going to do some damage. But never forget that he’s a goner.”
