Tim Moore: Welcome to Christ in Prophecy. We’re eager to kick off a new year looking forward to what the Lord has in store for us in 2024. You know almost 44 years ago Dr. David Reagan launched Lamb & Lion Ministries with one mission: to proclaim the soon return of Jesus Christ to as many people as possible as quickly as possible. When he began in 1980 the signs of the times were already multiplying throughout the world. He was convinced then that Jesus was at the gates of heaven ready to come and gather the church in the Rapture.
Tim Moore: When I first heard Dr. David Reagan in 1993, he sparked a fire in my heart. I was thrilled to hear the prophetic Word of God preached for the first time and began looking to the heavens and listening for a trumpet. I was ready for Jesus to come right then. As the year 2000 approached, many people had a sense of impending doom. We were told that computer glitches might shut down our economy and immobilize our society, fortunately, that gloomy scenario did not play out.
2000, of course, was a presidential election year, the vitriol that year seems quaint by current standards, but it set a new bar for America. Do you remember the lengthy delay in learning who had actually won the election? Those were fraught days, and 2024 may offer a repeat, both in political noise and drama. But here we are, still anticipating the Lord’s soon return, and watching as the signs that were evident in 1980 increase in frequency and in intensity and at an accelerating pace.
So, Nathan, as we closed out 2023, we kind of reflected on some of the things that we were celebrating from that year. Now as we start a new year, what are you looking forward to in 2024?
Nathan Jones: Oh, unfortunately, I don’t know about looking forward to. You ever been on a roller coaster? I’m not a big fan of roller coasters, but I think the worst part of a roller coaster is when you’re going the straight up and you could feel every board, boom, boom, boom, and you crest the top and then there’s that feeling as the bottom drops out. And it feels like every year is one more of those rungs as we get higher and higher as all the signs of the times speed up in frequency and intensity until we go over the side. And I kind of say the over the side is the Rapture of the church, because then, you know, the world is going plunge into the Tribulation after the Rapture. So, I look forward to many things, but I got to say as we get closer and closer to the Rapture, there’s less and less to look forward to other than the return to Jesus Christ because we know the world is going down morally.
Tim Moore: You know, a lot of people this year will put their hope in the political process. They will hope for their favorite candidate to be elected. They’ll hope that somehow the United States turns back from the abyss of moral insanity that we’ve embraced these last number of years. I’ve learned even from the political effort that is a false hope because even if we for a season begin to stop the tide, it almost seems impossible to turn back altogether. And so, I think that the only thing we as followers of Christ can put our final hope in is Jesus Christ. And Scripture tells us we should be looking forward to our Blessed Hope.
But you mentioned the signs of the time. So obviously in 2023, we stepped through the six categories of signs. We had a whole series of prophetic perspectives in terms of our Lamplighter series on the signs of nature, signs of society, spiritual signs, signs of world politics, signs of society, and signs of Israel. So within those categories, what do you see as possible or perhaps likely to occur in 2024? And I realize you and I don’t claim to be prophets, so we’re speculating to a degree, but we do so through the lens of Bible prophecy and Scripture.
Nathan Jones: You know, if secular futurists can be turned to at the beginning of every year, people say, well, what do you see is going to happen this year? Why not Christians who have Bible prophecy? We know exactly what the future is going to hold. Just some of the parts are unclear leading up to it. Well, one of the things that Jesus said in Matthew 24 and Luke 21 is the signs of nature, that the natural disasters would increase in frequency and intensity. And Tim, I don’t know about you, but the world was just devastated over the last few years by all sorts of earthquakes, storms, hurricanes, you name it, it’s just all over the world. And the thought that it’s going to continue to get worse, and they’re going to come more frequent, and more intense. And the multi-billion-dollar incidents time and time again, all the suffering that it is going to cause, we know it’s going to increase this year and that’s tragic.
Tim Moore: It is tragic. You know, as 2023 began to wind down, we watched and read as Iceland was struck by a number of earthquakes. Scientists had discovered a giant magma dome underground, and they were awaiting the explosion of a major volcano. If and when that occurs, and of course we’re recording this just prior to early 2024, it will be devastating across all of Europe because the ash cloud will keep even airplanes from flying. And so, we are seeing things like that happen more frequently, and it is not just due to climate change, it’s because that’s what God said would happen as even the earth, the very natural order, seems to be upheaving through the wickedness and the curse of sin that God placed upon it along with mankind.
Nathan Jones: Yeah, and they’ll quickly say, well, it’s man-made global warming, we have to cut carbon emissions and all that. It’s not. We know from the Bible that the Lord is sovereign over the weather on this earth. He has angels on the winds. He’s controlling the weather and He’s doing so and He tells us in the Bible to wake the world up and say, repent and come back to Me.” So the signs of weather, I predict, not as a prophet, but knowing Bible prophecy that there’s going to be a lot of natural disasters this year.
Tim Moore: Well, we’ve watched in the last several years. I mean, I mentioned the year 2000 and I often ask people when I’m out speaking, you probably do as well, in the year 2000 could you have imagined how far our society would have fallen in 23 years? So now that we’ve changed over to yet another year, what do you see happening in terms of the degradation of our society, the sign of society, not just in the United States, but throughout the West and the world this year?
Nathan Jones: Yeah, that’s a good point. So, the second sign or category we can look at is signs of society. And I think that you’re right. Man, you go back to 2000, that year my son was born. And I think that the whole social upheaval that was going on now with the transgender movement, the LGBT movement and wokeism and all that was in its infancy back then. Yeah, we knew gay people. Ellen DeGeneres was on television. Rock Hudson had died of AIDS. You know, we knew that. But the fact that it’s been mainstream and it’s been forced into the school systems and it’s being indoctrinated into little kids. And now they’re advocating for children to go without parental authority to go and get gender changes, to have organs cut off. I mean, if you said that 20 years ago, Tim, I think we would say, no way could have that happened.
Tim Moore: You couldn’t have believed it if I put it in a fictional script or a book claiming that that would happen, and yet we’ve witnessed it. I think you’re exactly right. In 2024, there’s going to be an effort to push the autonomy of children, meaning removing them from the oversight and the authority of their parents, placing them further and further under the care and watch of the government or of government agents, whether it’s schools, or social organizations, social programs. And this is something that’s going to be horrific because so many young people are going astray and even parents are being cut out of their lives. There’s even a movement to allow adults to pursue sexual engagement with children because if the children have autonomy, who’s to say that they don’t have the ability to make that choice? We’re about to witness some of those horrors visited on us even here in the United States. And of course, I think one of the major themes of the election coming up this year is going to be an advocacy for abortion without any restrictions by the entire Democratic Party and the left in our nation, because after the results of 2023, they think that’s a winning strategy.
Nathan Jones: Yeah, 2024 is going to be all about the politics. Every year it is. People kind of forget Bible prophecy and they turn towards government, like you said earlier, to solve their problems. So if I have to make a prediction for 2024, a lot of Bible prophecy students are going to get sidetracked and they’re going look to government to provide the answers. And we’re also going to see a push towards what is the four P’s of the Democratic Party or the Left Party: pot, porn, and Planned Parenthood. John Fetterman’s wife has said, that’s all that matters really to the Democratic Party. And she’s absolutely right. When you have a party that exists for self-aggrandizement, for pleasure, and no consequences, we’re going to continue to see in 2024 a push at the state level, I believe for legalizing abortion all the way up until possibly even as California said, after birth.
Tim Moore: You know Paul told Timothy that in the end times the world would be marked by three loves: love of money, love of self, and love of pleasure, and that really boils down to what you just described. Why are so many legislatures embracing gambling and drug money, marijuana being legalized? Because they are addicted to money. Why are people pursuing those things? Because they are addicted to the pleasures they think they can gain in the sense of self-autonomy and self-esteem has just run amok. Obviously, we talk about the sign of society, but this blends over into signs that are spiritual in nature, because there is a great moral degradation in our society.
You know, I’ve observed that even the Catholic Church, which for many years was at least a bastion of tradition, standing on Bible principles when it came to marriage, when it came to sexuality, but under the current Pope, they are getting very wishy-washy even on those basic doctrines of the Bible. And so I see a great upheaval spiritually in our nation and many more people declaring themselves to be nones; they don’t believe in anything.
Nathan Jones: Yeah, Francis actually excommunicated, you probably heard, a conservative archbishop because of his outward stand that hey the Pope isn’t Catholic anymore. And so there’s a question too in 2024 as Francis is really old, like the gerontocracy that seems to be running the entire world right now, will the Pope be replaced with somebody younger someone more open to the global Babylon religion that’s defined in the Tribulation time period? But Tim, those are the negative signs spiritually, but there are positive signs.
Tim Moore: There certainly are. And we are seeing many people who are having their eyes opened. I think they’re finally coming to their senses because things have gotten so bad. It was reported late in 2023 that a growing number of Americans sense that we are in the end times. Maybe you watching this program today have friends that say, something just seems to be amiss, is this the end times? And so I think in our heart, the Lord is waking people up to the discord, and that provides an opening for them to come to faith in Christ, which is what our program is all about.
Nathan Jones: And isn’t that wonderful, even though we’re seeing apostasy running amok in the church and heresy, churches putting rainbow flags in front and denying the sovereignty of God, we also see that the church is still on the move, 2024 we’ll still see millions of people come to know Jesus as their savior. And should the Rapture happen this year, there’ll probably be more people saved just after the Rapture than in 2,000 years of church history. So, you know, this could be the greatest coming to Jesus Christ in the last 2,000 years should the rapture happen this year.
Tim Moore: Which is why we never focus on the gloom. We’re never doomy. Even though we recognize the chaos in the world, we always are looking forward with hope. Hope is not a concept, it’s not an Oprah Winfrey, hope in hope, it’s a hope in a person, Jesus Christ. Well, Nathan, we’ve got three more categories in terms of the world politics, much upheaval in 2023, wars, rumors of wars. We see a rise in belligerence by China. We see growing threats from Iran and North America Korea, of course, Russia has been re-ascending there north of Israel. What do you think is going to happen in this year’s political scene?
Nathan Jones: Well, when you read Ezekiel 38 and 39, we know that at some point Russia will make an alliance with Turkey and Iran and some of the northern African nations and will come against Israel. I’m not saying that’s going to happen in 2024, but we’re going to continue to see the alliances of those nations come together. They are meeting all the time. They are planning all the time. Russia can’t advance because of NATO to the west. It can’t advance east because of China. It can only go south. And the Bible says there will be hooks in the leader of Russia’s jaw to drag them down and try to conquer and plunder Israel. So, we’ll continue to see Russia, a powerhouse. It could be the fact that Russia is a powerhouse means that they will defeat Ukraine at some point, or at least it’s a stalemate and push south. And for China, and a lot of people wonder where is China in Bible prophecy? Well, you only see it at the end when the kings of the east come at Armageddon. So I don’t think China is going to take over the world in 2024 or any time, frankly.
Tim Moore: I see another development happening as Turkey, under its current leadership, continues to move toward a radical Islamic ideology. And what this does is this estranges them from the West, they’ve been a NATO ally for a number of years. But they are coming further and further into the sway of Russia and antagonistic toward Israel. And we’re told that the Gog-Magog War will involve an alliance between Russia and the nations that basically make up Turkey and the Stan Nations. So I see that happening more and more.
You know, and even you watching are probably thinking that the presidential election is most important. And we do advocate that you speak to and vote according to Christian principles because it is important in that sense But there’s so much more going on in the world, and prophetically we know that the nation’s coming into alignment is exactly what we see before our eyes.
Well Nathan we can talk about technology, my goodness that one could be a whole show. It has been before probably will be again, but what do you see happening in 2024? Rise of AI?
Nathan Jones: Well we know the fact that the Antichrist Kingdom will be based on a financial system that controls everybody’s buying and selling. CBDCs or Central Bank Digital Currencies will become a thing that’s a given, cash will disappear, AIs will be necessary to run it all, and huge databases will record everything and film everybody to judge their loyalty. Whether it will be globalized in 2024, probably not, but it’s definitely pushing in that direction.
Tim Moore: Okay, this leaves us with our last category, most exciting, but we’re not going to spend too much time today because we will come back to talk about Israel over and over again. But as 2023 wound down, we were watching the war against Hamas still struggling along. We don’t know what the final outcome will be, let alone all the threats surrounding Israel. But what do you think 2024 looks like regarding Israel?
Nathan Jones: Well, Israel is all in about defeating Hamas. They will defeat Hamas, that’s a given. Prophetically, there are prophecies against Gaza. It’ll get bigger and probably by Hezbollah in the end, Egypt and Jordan will not like all the refugees flooding into their countries, and Psalm 83 prophesies that the war will get bigger and Israel will win. So are we seeing the beginning of the Psalm 83 War? I think by the end of 2024 we’re going to be know one way or another. And then of course beyond that as Israel becomes more antithetical to the people around the world, Antisemitism will continue to go on the rise. As we see more people hate Israel for just existing.
Tim Moore: Yeah, I think there’s a hopeful sign, which is ironic because it’s going to take some very discouraging news to lead to a hopeful sign. I think as Antisemitism rises, as the Jewish people around the world feel more and more isolated and even hated in places like America, and France, and Western Europe, they’re going to realize that they need to go home to Israel. And God’s going to motivate them to go back to their ancient homeland just as the Bible foretells in the end times. And I also think that out of desperation for what has happened relative to the war in Gaza and other pressures, many Jewish people will begin to have an opening in their heart to receive the message of salvation in Yeshua. We already saw that late in 2023, I think there will be a number of Jews who come to recognize that they are no longer nones, and they are no longer agnostics, they are going to worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and they are going to recognize the Messiah, Yeshua.
Nathan Jones: It is a very positive sign in Israel, a seismic shift of the Jewish people away from Leftism and Wokeism towards Judaism. Now, we pray that they will accept Jesus as their Savior, but that doesn’t happen until into the Tribulation Time period. But still many Jews are going to accept Jesus Christ through the Messianic movement in 2024, a very positive sign.
Tim Moore: Well, we have been sharing that good news with Jewish friends and really supporting ministries that are impactful in Israel for a number of years. We’re going to keep doing that. But if you’re watching this program today, you should know that the Christ in Prophecy Television program has been around for 24 years. We now have over 1,100 episodes highlighting God’s prophetic Word and pointing to Jesus’ soon return.
Nathan Jones: Well, obviously you can access all of that material on our website. In fact, virtually everything we’ve ever recorded or written is available online and fully searchable by keyword or topic. You can also search by the name of various guests that we’ve had on over the years.
Tim Moore: Our website is a tremendous and ever-expanding resource. I say ever-expanding because Nathan is constantly adding new content, including new episodes of Christ in Prophecy just like this one.
Nathan Jones: And beginning in 2023, we began posting weekly blog and video features from Dave Bowen, our new teaching evangelist. Take a Deep Dive with Dave once a week on our blog or on our YouTube channel. And if you want us to push material to you, you can sign up for our bi -weekly newsletter, you’ll receive it by email and get a solid dose of Bible prophecy insights.
Tim Moore: Nathan does a great job of putting together that e-newsletter using some of the content from all our various outreach efforts. Right now, almost 100,000 people receive that electronic newsletter. We also keep our website updated with conferences and speaking engagements scattered all over the country.
And on that note, we’re glad to announce our 2024 conference. Here are a few details.
As 2023 rolled into 2024, the Signs of the Times were raging all around the world! From increasing frequency and intensity of natural signs to a society that is shaking its fist, and flipping its finger at God, to multiplying spiritual, technological, and political signs, to the obvious sign of Israel, you’d have to be spiritually deaf and dumb not to realize that God is warning us that time is short.
For Christians, that is encouraging news. Our orders remain intact as we wait for our Commander to deliver us from this world of sin. But for those who don’t yet know Christ as Savior and worship Him as Lord, time is of the essence.
You know while some prophetic ministries fixate on the gloom that lies ahead, we consider the very signs we highlight to be evidence of God’s great love for the world. We know that even His apparent delay in coming again proves He is patient—not wanting any to perish.
The theme of this episode of Christ in Prophecy has been “What’s Next”—meaning what lies ahead for Lamb & Lion Ministries and the world, if the Lord tarries. Now, Nathan and I are not prophets with the gift to foresee the future. But we do exercise the prophetic role of proclaiming the Word of the Lord—including all the End Times signs He told us to watch for in Scripture.
We do so to encourage followers of Christ to hold fast—and shine brightly in this darkening world. And clearly, America needs light today more than ever before. So let’s keep our eyes on Jesus Christ and serve Him boldly right now.
But our other heart desire is to see as many as possible flee from the wrath to come and into the loving arms of our Savior. That was the message of John the Baptist, who was a voice crying in the wilderness before Christ’s first coming. So, like him, we urge you to repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand!
This year, America will focus its attention once again on the Presidential election—along with legislative races for the House and Senate. Our society stands at a crossroads. Will the atheistic forces of progressivism lead us farther away from our Judeo-Christian roots, or will right prevail and roll back the tide of godlessness, wickedness, and Antisemitism?
For too long, those who know their God have been silent as the forces of death and destruction have raged in America, like the sons of Israel who refused to take a stand when Elijah asked them how long they would waver between two opinions on Mount Carmel.
But now is the time to heed Daniel’s prophecy: “the people who know their God must display strength and take action.”
With that in mind, we want to invite you to join us in Denton, Texas, on June 14-15. Our focus will be “America in Free Fall” as we call our nation to decide, How Long Will You Waver?
Guest speakers include Pastor Jack Hibbs and Governor Mike Huckabee. The activity will start on Friday evening and continue throughout the day on Saturday.
For more details or to register for this timely conference, visit our website or call the number on the screen. We’ll hope to see you in June!!
Nathan Jones: Well Tim, I think this conference is going to offer us tremendous hope in the midst of all this chaos out there and a timely biblical perspective.
Tim Moore: You know, I really think it will. And of course, we call our conference a Bible conference. And as many of you know, we do that because even though we offer a prophetic perspective, we do not require that our speakers limit themselves to a message dealing with Bible prophecy, at least not foretold prophecy.
Nathan Jones: Well, that’s right. You’ve made the point that the entire Bible is either prophetic as a foretold or forthtold revelation of God.
Tim Moore: True, but we recognize it anecdotally, most people would consider Bible prophecy to be that which foretells. So, on that note, Nathan, let’s do a little foretelling of some things we’re looking forward to in 2024.
Nathan Jones: Absolutely. Well, when Dave Reagan launched Lamb & Lion Ministries in 1980, he was quickly encouraged to share the message of Jesus’ soon return on the radio. And what began as a local broadcast on a small Christian radio station grew into a tremendous impact on a network of stations around the nation. And beginning this month, we’re going back to the future to broadcast our message.
Tim Moore: We’ve already begun to share a daily prophecy moment on stations across the country. Many small Christian radio stations will air these for free and sometimes multiple times a day. And on the weekend we have a 25-minute Christ in Prophecy radio program. We know that the format of radio will offer new challenges and new opportunities but we promise you that we’ll seize this new old venue to point people to Jesus Christ.
Nathan Jones: And if you would like to hear Christ in Prophecy Radio, please call your local station and encourage them to add our program to their lineup. Then, reach out to us and let us know what station to pursue. And pray that God will leverage this effort into a great impact for His kingdom and glory for His Son. And finally, since this outreach will require considerable financial resources, if you’d like to invest towards the kingdom by supporting this effort, please consider financing supporting us.
Tim Moore: You can email us with information regarding radio station recommendations, and you can call the number on the screen or visit our website to contribute to this exciting new outreach. None of our outreach by television, magazine, and book publishing, or our new radio program would be possible without the faithful support of prophecy partners and others. Through their committed prayers that uplift and sustain us, and their generous giving that provides the wherewithal for us to proclaim the Lord’s soon return, we are able to fulfill our mission.
Nathan Jones: Well unlike many ministries that have to sell something every week or plead with their television audience and in regular fundraising appeals, we are a faith-based ministry simply relying on the faithfulness of God as He guides and directs people to support Lamb & Lion Ministries. We have never been in debt, and even when the economy has struggled for a season over the past 43 years, God has always provided for all of our needs. If He is leading you to become a partner with Lamb and Lion Ministries here is how you can co-labor alongside us.
Tim Moore: For over 42 years, Lamb & Lion Ministries has proclaimed the soon return of Jesus Christ to as many people as possible, as quickly as possible. Our entire staff is dedicated to that gospel centered message which we get out through the Christ in Prophecy television program, our bi-monthly magazine, the Lamplighter, a huge library of books, pamphlets, DVDs, and of course our dynamic and interactive website. We point new generations and new audiences to our Blessed Hope, and I hope that you’ve found it to be encouraging to you because we can’t do it alone. This faith based ministry is supported by thousands of Prophecy Partners which enable our outreach through their faithful prayer and financial support. Prophecy Partners commit to contributing $25 a month, less than $1 a day, and in return they receive a print edition of our Lamplighter magazine and updates on the impact this ministry is having around the world. If you’ve been blessed by Lamb & Lion Ministries, join with us, partner to share the exciting message that Jesus is coming soon. Godspeed.
Tim Moore: In Isaiah 46:8-10, the Lord God says, “Remember this, and be assured; cause it to return to your heart, you transgressors. Remember the former things long past, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things which have not been done, saying, ‘My counsel will be established, and I will accomplish all my good pleasure,’ calling a bird of prey from the east, the man of My counsel from a far country. Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass. I have formed it, surely I will do it.”
Nathan Jones: Well, hear the heart of the Lord as He urges those who are in rebellion against Him. “Hear me, you stubborn of heart, who are far from righteousness. I bring near My righteousness, it is not far off; and My salvation will not delay. And I will grant salvation in Zion, and my glory for Israel.”
Certainly, as Tim and I have discussed many times, God is not finished with His chosen people Israel. He has promised to bring a great remnant of them to salvation. But His righteousness, His salvation, is available to all who put their trust in Jesus.
Tim Moore: We are excited about what the Lord has in store for us in 2024. While others are anxious about what lies ahead, we who trust in the Lord know that He has prepared good works beforehand for us to walk in. He is our refuge and strength and we will not fear.
Nathan Jones: If you don’t have that kind of assurance gazing into an uncertain future, start this year off on the right foot by acknowledging your need for a savior, repenting of your sins and trusting in Jesus Christ. If you do, He will never leave you nor forsake you, even when you stand before the throne of God on Judgment Day.
Tim Moore: We pray for Prophecy Partners and supporters by name every day here at Lamb & Lion Ministries. If you determined to put your trust in Jesus to begin this new year, please contact us so that we can pray for you by name. We know that He who begins a new work in you will complete it by the day of Christ Jesus. May it be so in your life! With great anticipation for that day of Christ Jesus and hope that He might break from the heavens this year. We cry out, “Maranatha, come Lord Jesus, Godspeed.”
