Fulfilled prophecy and God’s faithfulness throughout the Bible encourage us because we know we can trust that He will make good on the remaining prophecies regarding Israel, the return of Christ, and the end times. No nation or world leader comes into power apart from God causing or allowing it to happen. The book of Daniel states: “Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things (Daniel 2:20-22).”Read More

Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in an event or time that we fail to take a step back and look at the big picture. If you take a snapshot of what is happening in the world these days it might look like this: A decaying moral society; leaders who care more about their personal wealth and power instead of serving those they lead; an imminent major war in the Middle East; and an overall feeling of anxiety permeating every aspect of society and the lives of many. Yes a simple snapshot at any given time can paint a powerful picture… and the picture we see these days is not a pretty one.
But God has given us His Word so that believers might not be deceived by what we see around us. We are to take note of what is happening around us so we can understand it in context of God’s promises. And our guest this morning is a voice of reason and hope for such a time as this.
Gary Kah of Hope For the World has written insightful books on the coming one world government and one world religion, all the while encouraging believers to always maintain the eternal hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Gary joins us this morning to look at the crisis in Syria that has the world on the brink of another huge war, along with the accelerating movement toward a one world government and religion where humanity will pledge its allegiance to the enemies of God.Read More
Here in our nation we have been focused on tragic school shootings and the continuing probe into potential “collusion” with Russia by the Trump Administration. Occasionally we turn an eye to the growing threat of a nuclear North Korea, but we hear little about rapidly changing and threatening events in the Middle East.
The Islamic world is fighting a civil war between Sunni and Shiite; Iran is threatening to attack neighboring Sunni nations and testing Israeli defenses; and Syria has been decimated with civil war, killing tens of thousands. And Turkey, once an ally of Israel, has become a radical Muslim nation and a true wild card in all this turmoil.
This morning Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now on-fire born-again believer in Jesus Christ, joins us for his perspective on the Middle East and the growing threat of Islamic terrorism here in the United States.Read More
We take so much for granted where our faith and freedoms are concerned. Too many Christians in America have lost the desire for spiritual things while it is evident so many people in other countries hunger for God’s Word and the truth. There are striking similarities between the lukewarm church in Laodicea from the book of Revelation and the comfortable, complacent church in the United States.
We receive another first-hand account of the state of the church today with our guest, teacher and missionary, Elijah Abraham, who just returned from India where he taught and helped equip pastors there.Read More
As we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we can’t help but hear about Bethlehem, Jerusalem, and Israel. But if we ignore the signs of the times including what is happening in Jerusalem, we risk missing important end times events. These prophetic signs from God point to the return of Jesus to judge all mankind and establish His everlasting Kingdom in which “the government will be upon His shoulders.”
Pastor Randy White joins us to discuss recent events in Jerusalem and the Middle East as well as some forgotten history of the holy land. Randy also shares some fascinating details we may not know about the Christmas Story. In segment three we touch on two articles that cover anti-semitism in France and the ‘bah humbug’ spirit trying to prevent prisoners from receiving religions education.Read More
Today we check in with Pastor Carl Gallups regarding world events including President Trump’s public recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and the prophetic implications of this bold, historic move. We discuss these and other questions:
Should Jerusalem be the capital of modern-day Israel?
Is God’s hand on President Trump or on the United States?
Can God use anyone or anything to further His plans?
Chapters referenced: Zechariah 12, Ezekiel 38, Isaiah 45,
The mantra of the radical LGBTQ movement for years has been that they just want “equal treatment.” That statement is proving to be a lie as the movement goes out of its way to shut down or silence anyone who opposes their ungodly lifestyle. In this new case, a donut shop in Maine called “The Holy Donut” simply wanted to help a poor family over Christmas but was forced to stop because of attacks by LGBTQ radicals. The increasing level of threats against Christian business owners and individuals show that LGBTQ activists are influencing public opinion and gaining support for their tactics of intimidation.Read More
Over the past several decades, most presidential candidates declared they believe Jerusalem is the true capital of Israel and that they would move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem if elected. History has proven this to be political rhetoric to capture more votes as no past president has followed through on the promise – Until now. Yesterday, President Trump kept his campaign promise–a rarity for candidates these days–and proclaimed the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city and would begin plans to move our embassy there. Whatever you think of President, Trump it is certainly refreshing to see a candidate actually follow through on a campaign promise.
Other than Israel Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, world leaders are reacting with anger, claiming this will set the “peace process” back. This is the same ‘peace process” that has produced zero results for many decades. This morning we will discuss the potential effects of this courageous move by a controversial president.
In our first segment, we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council and hear some fascinating insights on how the Supreme Court works, as well as her thoughts on the opening arguments in the Jack Phillips’ religious freedom case. Is religious freedom hanging in the balance and could it come down to one man’s vote?Read More
1 John 4:1-3: “Beloved do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.”
Matter settled: Islam is a spirit of antichrist because it denies that Jesus is God in the flesh…so why are so many professing Christians believing that Christians and Muslims worship the same god?
Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer sheds some light on this deception.
In our final segment we look at the continuing hypocrisy of the left regarding freedom of speech and religious expression.Read More
As the Bible warns us, the world continues to become a more dangerous and evil place. The love of many grows colder, men are self-serving, evil is seen as good, God is hated, there are natural disasters, economic concerns, as well as wars and rumors of war. But the good news has always been this life is a vapor compared to eternity, and God is sovereign – in control and on His throne. No scheme of Satan or man will foil His plans.
In the midst of growing cultural and political chaos in America and worldwide, prophecy will be fulfilled and God has a plan for His people: speak the truth and share the gospel with the lost, making disciples of all nations.
Our guest this morning is Gary Kah of Hope for the World Ministries. Gary is a worldview expert and has done extensive research over several decades concerning the progressing globalism and the establishment of a one world religion. But Gary also reminds us that in the midst of all that is going on we can trust in God’s Word, and that the best thing we can do as believers to combat evil is to share the gospel and hope of Jesus Christ as we strive to overcome evil with good.Read More
Friday is typically the day when we turn the show over to you, our listeners to discuss any topic you want. Some of the issues you want to discuss today include:
The ongoing NFL protest controversy
Will American Christian Churches ever return to a biblical model for church?
The continuing gifts of the Holy Spirit vs. the teaching of “cessationism”
The New Apostolic Reform Movement,
and, how do we speak the truth in love when the other side wants to shut us down?
Before we get to your questions, we have a special guest on the program today – and we’ve been trying to get this man back for about 10 months. In our first segment, we welcome back Amir Tsarfati of Behold Israel Ministries to discuss world events in light of Scripture, the increasing pressure on Israel, the Interpol vote at the U.N. to accept a “state of Palestine,” Europe being ready for the Antichrist, witches putting hexes on President Trump, and unfolding events in the Middle East that point to biblical prophecy.
The Bible is clear that in the final years before the Lord’s return, Israel will be ground zero for activity ushering in His return. Jerusalem is called a stumbling block to the world and these days approximately 25% of all discussion within the United Nations focuses on the conflict between Israel and her neighbors who have publicly stated they want it wiped off the map.
We also remember apologist, #Nabeel Qureshi (34) and his conversion from Islam, his heart for ministry, and his legacy. After a year long battling stomach cancer, Nabeel left to be with the Lord last Saturday. We also discussed the expectations the church generally places on pastors and specifically, their wives! There is not enough attention paid to the importance of loving, praying for and supporting them.
We’re joined on air by Jim Fletcher of Prophecy Matters to discuss the importance of Israel, Jerusalem, Damascas, and the Middle east in light of Bible prophecy. We also debunk the September 23 prediction of the rapture or apocalypse.Read More
Today is the 16 year anniversary of September 11 and the horrendous attacks on our nation when Muslim terrorists murdered 3,000 people in the worst terrorist attack in our history. But now we wake up to Florida and Texas devastated by powerful hurricanes, a madman in North Korea threatening America, boasting he will destroy us; and the Middle East nearing a potential implosion that could lead to World War III. All this in a world that increasingly hates God and His Word, and a church in America that is sinking further into apathy and mediocrity. All signs seem to point to a coming crisis that could usher in what the Bible warned about: a crisis so large that the world would embrace a man of sin and evil as its savior.
Today’s guest, Gary Kah has written about the coming one world government for thirty years joins us to put current world events under the lens of scripture.Read More
Every Friday we answer your questions and read your comments on air. Some of your questions and comments this week allude to a church in America that seems to have lost its focus and moral compass There is confusion about Islam, an ineffectiveness in addressing the social and cultural issues of our times, and the melding of seemingly contradictory philosophies like Universalism, Calvinism, and Social Justice.
Here are some of the topics we cover today:
When is it biblical and necessary to divide over doctrines and break fellowship with professing Christians?
A Christian who formerly supported the LGBTQ, even to the point of pushing others into those lifestyles, admits she was wrong and has repented. Why are people like her in the minority of believers today?
How do pastors avoid watering down their sermon/message knowing there are new believers in the congregation as well as mature disciples of Christ?
Why do the media seem to despise Israel and the heritage of the Jewish people? Is the Left that sold out to progressive ideology to report the truth?
Should we not invite people to church if our pastor does not preach the gospel and the whole counsel of God?
The hypocrisy of Democrat Christians toward other Christians who support or voted for President Trump
How do you prevent yourself from becoming legalistic when studying God’s law in the Old Testament?
Should Christians be concerned about Sharia Law and the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood in our government and on our fading religious freedoms?
Does the move of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem have any prophetic implications?
Is Islam the one world religion we are warned about in Revelation?
As secular culture turns more hostile toward God and His Word every day, secular humanists are doing all they can to make certain God’s perfect truth is no longer a part of helping people trapped in sin. Instead, the left is encouraging people to not only agree with them, but to insist that others accept their sin as righteous. Isaiah 5:20 warns us about calling evil good.
The city of Milwaukee recently passed an ordinance that bans so-called “conversion therapy” for minors struggling with homosexuality or gender issues, but many pastors in the community are uniting to fight the proposed ordinance. We also discuss a California Supreme Court decision that actually reverses a CA law that approved assisted suicide, and the Supreme Court decision regarding sports betting (gambling) leaving it up to each state whether or not to legalize betting on sports.
Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action is in studio today to discuss these issues along with why so many people are ignorant or uninformed about the Christian faith and what the Bible actually teaches.Read More
While Southern Baptists comprise less than 10% of professing Christians in America, it has historically been a strongly evangelistic denomination, rejecting the Calvinistic view of predestination. Over the past decade or two however, the denomination has seen the rise of what are called the “New Calvinists,” along with what many see as an infiltration of the Social Justice Movement. And in a few short weeks Southern Baptists will elect their new president, giving a strong indication of the direction of the denomination.
We are seeing similar theological battles brewing in virtually every denomination of Christianity and today we look at this particular controversy against the background of an increasingly divided Christian Church in America.
In our final segment we look at an interesting article by Dale Hudson about how so many young people today are “building their own god” by selectively choosing scriptures that [seem to] support their individual values and beliefs.Read More
In our final segment, we look at the rioting by Hamas against Israel – as well as the response of the IDF – as the Trump administration officially recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city and location of the U.S. embassy. We’ll look at the facts versus how the news is being reported in the mainstream media. Is Hamas manipulating the West?
First, we catch up with Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project to discuss the following:
How do we start a conversation with friends or neighbors that have a COEXIST bumper sticker on their car? Don’t start by telling them to “get that stupid Coexist sticker off your car!”
Does the Bible really say Christians should not judge others?
What are your plans for the summer and whatever happened to reading books? Also, what worthwhile projects can you and your family undertake that will glorify God and help you grow as Christians?Read More
Today Israel marks the seventieth anniversary of its rebirth as a nation, a biblical prophecy from thousands of years ago fulfilled in 1948. The United States is marking the anniversary by officially moving its embassy to Jerusalem, the long-standing capital of Israel, against opposition from almost the entire world.
Many believe this will incite Muslim nations to attack Israel with the greatest severity since the 1973 war, and that it could quickly spread to a major regional or even world war. Iran’s growing influence, the rise of Turkey as a radical Muslim power, and the strong presence of Russia in the Middle East all point to a potentially serious conflict.
Jan Markell of Olive Tree Views and host of Understanding the Times Radio joins us this morning to discuss this significant anniversary in Israel’s history and discuss what might lie ahead.
In our final segment we talk with Wisconsin State Representative Andre Jacque and ask if the groundbreaking pro-life legislation recently signed into law in Iowa could also happen here in Wisconsin.Read More
