Where can we get the truth about attacks against Israel? Are they provoking these attacks? In the last 24 hours, more than 600 rockets have been fired at Israel from Gaza. The death toll is rising. And it seems what often makes the news is when Israel retaliates. The U.S. is moving a powerful naval armada into the Middle East to send a strong message to Muslim nations should they consider attacking Israel once again.Israel and specifically, Jerusalem is at the front and center of end times biblical prophecy, yet a growing number of Christians are ignorant of its importance or about God’s promises to protect Israel even in the midst of their rejection of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.Pastor and best-selling author Carl Gallups has studied Bible prophecy in depth and written several books about the rise of false gods in these final days, culminating with the coming temporary reign of Anti-Christ.Read More

Today we read your comments from the week and answer your questions, always going to the Word of God for eternal truth and biblical perspective. We open the podcast today with Mike giving a brief report on his experience this week at the National Religious Broadcasters convention in Anaheim, CA. He spoke there about the threats against biblical Christianity from government and media.The topics include the House bill HR5, social justice, Replacement Theology, what exactly is the purpose of what we call “church”? We also touch on mindfulness promoted in government schools, how to confront a back-slidden spouse, psychology creeping into churches, as well as the good and the bad of the Hebrew Roots movement.Read More
Our world is in the midst of a social and political upheaval that is threatening institutions and confusing a lot of people. And many think this is a well planned series of events to lead mankind to seek a “savior” who will bring up peace and tranquility. The Bible warns us of such a man and calls him “Anti-Christ”.
Gary Kah of Hope for the World Ministries joins Mike and Crash to discuss the rapid move toward globalization and how Christians can prepare for the coming persecution the Bible warns us about.Read More
There is a growing schism going on in within Christianity in America. It has been slow and subtle, but it is reaching the point where serious disciples of Jesus Christ are starting to take notice. This schism is centered around two important points:
Is the Christian walk about salvation, or holiness?
The Church’s relationship with the world.
Jesus warned that many who called Him “lord” would be condemned to eternal hell. Jesus and the Apostles warned that a great apostasy would infect the professing church in the days leading up to the Lord’s return. The Bible is clear that evil would grow exponentially in the final days and that Christians are to be a unique, holy people set aside for the glory of God. This means the true Church of Jesus Christ should be increasingly contradictory to the teachings and behaviors of this wicked world. Instead, some churches are intent on looking more like the world.
Mike and Crash discuss this great schism and how Christians who are serious about pursuing holy living can determine if they are in a church that is increasingly unique, or one that is conforming to the world.Read More
Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute and Silver Birch Ranch joins us to discuss two crucial men and lessons from the Old Testament that are important for believers these days.
First, we look at the “weeping prophet” Jeremiah: a man called by God to bring a warning to God’s people and call them to repentance only to be beaten, tortured and ignored.
And we look at Dave’s new book titled My Shepherd Psalm 23, a children’s book that brings the assurance that our shepherd, Jesus Christ, will always protect us and never abandon us.Read More
I received a phone call earlier this week from a listener asking me if I could take a few minutes and give the “big picture” of what I am seeing in our nation and the warning message I am trying to deliver. So here goes:
America, founded on Judeo-Christian law and principles, has abandoned that foundation over the past 50 years. God has been kicked out of our schools and government; we have murdered more than 60 million babies in the womb; we have redefined marriage; and we have told God that He is flawed in how He created us—that just because he created us male or female that he had no right to do that since we should be able to choose ourselves the gender we prefer.
America has gone from a Christian nation to an “Anti-Christ nation”. And while we should use our freedom of speech and religious expression, along with our voting power, to try to reverse the slide of this once-great nation, we must accept the inevitability of what the Bible forecasts: That one day soon every nation will turn on Israel and against God in defiance. There is no “USA” exclusion in the Word of God…Read More
As public education, media, and government have become clearly opposed to God in the preceding decades, we have reached a point in time when Christianity has gone from the prevailing belief system in our nation to one that is under intellectual assault at every turn.
Our children are immersed and indoctrinated by a public education system and entertainment industry that claims to offer them hope and truth when in reality, it is leading them to confusion and hopelessness. Yet many of us are concerned that the Church, which should be a beacon of light and truth set apart from the despair of this world, is actually being conformed to this world instead of being set apart from it.
This has been the result of rampant biblical illiteracy among a growing number of professing Christians that actually believe Jesus sinned while He was on earth. And if we believe Jesus actually sinned, what does that say about our belief in who God is and what He expects from us who claim to be His children?
Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project travels the world defending the faith, talking about the truth of God’s Word and how we can combat the propaganda and lies being spread. Much of it comes back to the Genesis account in Scripture. Jay joins us this morning to talk about the state of biblical illiteracy infecting American Christianity and the effects it is having on young people—the future leaders of our nation and churches.Read More
2019 will bring powerful and unique challenges and opportunities for the Christian Church in America. Satan’s battle against the Church will intensify as he acquires more and more allies to join him in his plan to neutralize the Church by making it look more like the secular culture it is supposed to resist and oppose.
We start this new year by looking at the prophetic signs of 2018 that might be pointing to the return of the Lord, along with the increased persecution of true believers around the world. Is this persecution a preview of the life coming for true believers in America?Read More
Many of us began preparing for Christmas and the five ‘F’s a month ago: festivities, family, food,...Read More
A couple weeks ago we interviewed Pastor Mike Abendroth on the doctrine of eternal security of the true believer through faith in Jesus Christ. Some listeners have written claiming our belief is wrong and that the belief in the eternal security of the believer is wrong and dangerous. So today Pastor Abendroth joins us again to address those concerns on this very important doctrine.
We will also talk with Mike about sincere questions unbelievers have about God and The Bible and how the Church has a responsibility to answer their sincere questions honestly, because if we cannot they will find the wrong answers in the world.Read More
As American Christianity generally bends over backwards to be seen as “loving” to the world, we have seen secular culture extend its influence within the church. From the social justice movement to the powerful LGBTQ lobby, we see more and more churches accommodating things of this world directly contradictory to the Bible. And now, with another presidential election on the horizon we are seeing an enhanced push for the church to embrace something that is directly opposed to the Bible: Marxist Socialism.
Mike and David look at the growth of socialist ideals within professing Christianity and why this is ominous and dangerous to the church.Read More
