117 - The Consequence of Ignored Warnings

117 - The Consequence of Ignored Warnings

May 19, 2010
Time and time again, in the Old Testament and even today, God's people warned the government and religious authorities about impending danger and the coming judgment of God. 

And time and time again those words were ignored.

From the destruction of the Northern Kingdom in 722 BC to the deportation to Babylon in 605, 597 and 586BC.  From the revival under Josiah to the preaching of Isaiah and Jeremiah, all the tell-tale signs were ignored. 

Can you see any parallel for today?  I sure can.  Listen and find out more.

What happens when the Word of God confronts the very core values of our society... and our own sincerely held beliefs? You know, when it confronts our views on sacred cow subjects like:

The history and founding of our Nation.
Capitalism and the accumulation of wealth.
The relationship between husband and wife.
The responsibility of parents to their children.
The concept of "success" in our culture.

What do we do?  Usually, we pitch the Word of God overboard.  Listen and find out why...

Contrary to what has been the popular position for the last 40 years or so, the anti-Christ may not come from the revived Western segment of the Roman Empire.  No, he may actually come from the Eastern segment.  And he may be a Muslim.

Does that sound politically incorrect?  Well, it is.  It flies in the face of much of what our compromised media, the Laodicean church and our president is telling us.  And if that is true, then we as a nation are doing our best to make peace with the Beast.  God help us all.

074 - Praying for Judgment to Fall on America

074 - Praying for Judgment to Fall on America

March 29, 2009
Did it ever dawn on you that, like Elijah of old, God may have some of His holy ones praying for judgment to fall on America in order to bring her back to repentance?  That maybe, after a three year drought, we as a nation may experience our own Mount Carmel encounter with God?

Remember the words of Elijah to the nation of Israel, "How long will you hesitate between two opinions?  If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him."  In other words, now is the time to choose... for them and for us.

060 - The Night Visions

060 - The Night Visions

November 13, 2008
First we have Daniel and his night visions.  Remember them?  The vision of the little horn, the terrifying fourth beast, and the Ancient of Days.
Then, we fast-forward to the Revelation and we see the same imagery of the night visions— but now they are from the pen of John in the Revelation.

Could there be a connection?  You bet.

Sit down and let's talk about it, shall we.

The following is a study of Revelation 13:1

048 - Remember the Disaster at Chernobyl!

April 17, 2008
On April 26, 1986 at 1:23 in the morning, the reactor number four at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant located in the Soviet Union near Pripyat in Ukraine exploded. 

Further explosions and the resulting fire sent a plume of highly radioactive fallout into the atmosphere and over an extensive geographical area.  Nearly thirty to forty times more fallout was released than Hiroshima. 

Do you remember? 
You should.  You need to.

Most people scoff at those who bought into and prepared for Y2K.  Remember?

"Aw, it was a real non-event.  Much-to-do about 'nuthin."
"Just a money-making scheme by those radical survivalists types."
"Yep, sure shot Biblical prophecy in the foot, didn't it?"

Well, not really.  Care to take a listen?

It's like playing chess with Bobby Fischer.  Bishop, Knight, Rook, Pawn... all power pieces in the Grandmaster's end game.

Gog, Magog, Meshech and Tubal... huh?

Like what kind of chess pieces are these?  And who exactly is this Grandmaster?

Stay tuned and find out more.

Reminds me of the classic, Bill Clinton, "I'm only lying when my lips are moving" mantra of denying marital infidelity.
 
"I have never had sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky. I've never had an affair with her."

Really?  Should we believe what you say or should we believe what you do?

Great question for a President facing impeachment. 
Better question for us, the church.
