Signs, Signs, Everywhere Signs…

No, we are not talking about the hit song of the 1960s–we’re talking about the increasing signs around us that our generation might, just might, be the one that sees the return of Jesus Christ. And while we anticipate His return with great hope and joy, we understand that only God knows the appointed date when Jesus calls us home and returns to establish His everlasting Kingdom.

Jesus warned us to be alert and look for the signs of His return, but to many Christians, biblical prophecy is confusing, intimidating and does not rank high on our priority list. This morning we’re joined by author and Pastor Carl Gallups, a scholar of biblical prophecy, to discuss the signs happening around us that might just point to the quick return of our Lord and Savior.

Just Reading the Bible is not Enough

James 1:22 instructs Christians to ‘be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.’ How do we go beyond simply reading to understanding and application? Pastor Randy White joins us to discuss how we can study the Bible and allow its wisdom to lead us to understand and live out its truth on a daily basis.

Time to stand?

About a year ago, we compiled a list of resources for those who are alarmed by their church leadership’s affiliation with the Willow Creek Association.  Why did we do this? Because the Willow Creek model was developed by a...

Bringing Sanity Back to Education

The Trump Administration’s Department of Justice announced Wednesday that it would drop an order from President Obama threatening to punish schools that did not allow transgender students to use bathrooms or shower facilities that coincide with their “perceived gender,” returning at least a shred of sanity to public education. But the battle for religious freedom and sanity marches on. This morning we discuss the story of a Christian business owner who was threatened by the U.S. Department of Agriculture because he dared have articles about the biblical view on marriage in his company’s break room.

In our first two segments today we talk about the “Church Growth Movement” with author and Pastor Gary Gilley who has studied this movement at length. First, what is the role of the church and its mission according to the Bible? Is bigger always better? What are the advantages and disadvantages of belonging to a mega-church? What kind of church is best and more conducive to growth for a young Christian? check out the podcast for plenty of wisdom from Pastor Gilley.

Tower of Babel 2: The March Toward Globalism

Just like humanity’s efforts in building the Tower of Babel that God destroyed, mankind is once again on a journey to proclaim itself “god”. Led by the United Nations and globalist economic, social and military forces, Progressives are determined to unite the world and form their version of “paradise” where mankind is unfettered by any constraints of God or His Word.

Gary Kah of hope for the World has studied the globalist movement for more than thirty years and joins us this morning for an update.

Why Does God Compare People To Sheep?

Many of us want to believe we are strong, independent, intelligent, adventurous, and even invincible. In the Bible however, God compares us to sheep – over and over. Not a flattering comparison, but there are many reasons for this. First, since we are the sheep of His pasture, we are dependent on Him. We also have a Good Shepherd who feeds us and tends to our needs.

If we dwell in the shelter God provides, and if we abide in the shadow of the Almighty as Psalm 91:1 suggests, then we are protected. When we stay close enough to Jesus our Shepherd, we can rest in His shadow and grow in His presence. Our responsibility is to stay close to Him, keep listening to His voice, and to not stray. Though we often follow many people and things in this life, we were made to follow after God, our Leader.

The Battle for Truth in Church and Culture

We must be undaunted in establishing God’s Word as the basis of our thinking, our faith, and our lives. There are many within the church who do not believe God’s Word in its entirety and do not believe in the deity of Jesus Christ. Truth is on the line here as we try to navigate a godless and rapidly changing culture.

Fake News and Christian Discernment

Charles Spurgeon once rightly said, “Discernment is not a matter of simply telling the difference between right and wrong; rather it is telling the difference between right and almost right.” Today, Pastor Randy White joins us to discuss discernment, fake news, and having the correct biblical perspective on our times and how to prepare for the challenging days our nation and church face.
