Waking Up From our Deep Slumber as Christians

Accurate history provides a picture of where we are today and where we might be headed in the future. A look back at the history and trend of Christianity in America over the past fifty years does not paint a rosy picture. We have watched God and His Word be thrown out of public schools and most people stood by in silence. We have witnessed more than 50,000,000 babies murdered and barely a murmur of protest from the Christian community. Homosexual “marriage” became legal and we fear to speak up about sin because we don’t want to offend anyone. And now we are reaping the harvest from our indifference and selfish attitudes, watching a majority of our children walk away from biblical Christianity, embracing the lies of the enemy.

What will it take to wake up the Christian Church in America? Has she become so addicted to wealth and comfort that she is on the verge of looking more like the apostate church in the final days rather than the Bride of Christ that Paul and John talked about?

Elijah Abraham has a first hand view of the Christian Church both here in America and around the world. He sees American Christians living the life of comfort while true believers around the world put their lives on the line every time they attend church or mention the name of Jesus. Elijah joins us today to share his perspective.

Is the Middle East About to Erupt?

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.

Disproportionate Reaction to Religions

There is an interesting dichotomy when we look at how two major religions–Christianity and Islam–are increasingly perceived and treated in our nation.

Biblical Christianity calls on us to love all people, even those who are directly opposed to and violate God’s Word. Islam calls for punishment and even death to classes of people such as homosexuals or those who call themselves “transgender”.

Biblical Christianity teaches that men should honor and cherish their wives; Islam teaches that wives are more like property than cherished partners. They can be beaten or divorced on a whim.

So which of these religions should be the one feared by women and homosexuals? Islam. Yet it continues to get a pass with feminists, the radical homosexual movement and the media, while Christianity is framed as a religion of hate and bigotry. Which religion is being kicked out of schools and shouted down in public? Christianity, while Islam is promoted celebrated in public schools and feminist circles.

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now Evangelist and apologist for biblical Christianity joins us this morning to discuss this contradiction from reality.

A Stumbling Block to a World Serving Satan

President Trump’s proclamation of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has set another prophetic wheel in motion to show the world’s hatred for Israel, just as the Bible foretold. And the influence of Satan on world leaders and governments is slowly bringing the world to the final stage where all nations will stand in opposition to God.

One sign of just how blind people of this world have become is the acceptance of Islam as a “religion of peace” in spite of its history and leaders calling for death to Christians and Jews along with anyone who opposes Muslim domination of this world. Europe, through increased Muslim immigration, is slowly turning into a war zone where non-Muslims are attacked and “Sharia Zones” are being set up including “No Go Zones” where police won’t even enter. Despite these developments, Europe’s leaders lack the courage to admit their mistakes and the grave dangers they have put their citizens under.

And even here in the U.S. we see Christian Churches opposing Israel and refusing to see Islam for what it is: a socio-political, economic system wanting global domination and using a false deity to advance its goals. Meanwhile, millions of Muslims risk eternal separation from God because we as Christians lack the courage and wisdom to share the truth of the gospel with them.

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer, joins us this morning. Elijah travels the world speaking to persecuted Christians and educating pastors on how to understand and combat Islam.

The Spirit of Antichrist

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.

Prosperity Gospel, Racism, and Seeking Worldly Answers

When we step back and look at our nation in the big picture, it is not an encouraging view. Sixty million babies have been murdered through abortion; violence and hatred are on the rise; politicians and leaders are seeking answers from man rather than God, and young people wondering if God made a mistake with their gender. Sadly, the Church generally seems to have little power or influence to produce biblical change and defend the truth.

And yet, the gates of hell will not prevail against Jesus’ church, and the gospel is being preached around the world leading thousands to saving faith in Christ every day, even in the darkness of Muslim dominated nations.

One of those men of God leading the charge is Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim now committed disciple of Jesus Christ. He travels the world equipping believers to share the gospel and become committed disciples of Jesus. Elijah has noticed a stark contrast to how we view church and Christianity in our nation compared to new believers living in places where just proclaiming Jesus might cost you everything!

The Islamic Dilemma

The Bible is clear that as dedicated Christians we are to love all men, even our enemies, and share the gospel of eternal hope with them, including the forgiveness of sin, repentance, and eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ alone. But this is easier to do with some people than others. It may be easier to reach out to groups like Mormons, Buddhists or atheists because there is little fear of retaliation. Some Muslims, on the other hand, can pose quite the challenge.

While the majority of Muslims are not radical jihadists and want to live in peace, there is a growing minority being trained to kill Christians and Jews and destroy our way of life. So when we approach Muslims with the gospel how do we set aside our fears and see them as God sees them – made in His image but in need of salvation through Jesus?

Elijah Abraham is a former Muslim and now a committed disciple of Jesus Christ who travels the world training pastors and equipping churches to reach Muslims with the gospel. On today’s program, we discuss the growth and threat of Muslim terrorism and how this should not discourage us to love Muslims and share the gospel with them.

Islam, World Events, & More Liberal Hypocrisy

This is telling: a teacher in California promotes transgender propaganda to her students without parental permission; a parent complains, and the school system says the teacher has the right to share her personal views. But a High School football coach kneels by himself to pray after a game, some players join him, and the liberal 9th Circus Court of Appeals says he acted unconstitutionally by “imposing” his private views on the students who attended the game. So public employees can freely express their anti-biblical views if they are liberal and a Christian public employee cannot privately express his beliefs. Is there not a glaring double standard here?

In our first segment, we are joined by Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer who travels the world equipping Christians to share the gospel with Muslims. We ask him about Replacement international terrorism, Replacement theology, and why Islam is generally seen as a darling religion of the left when the Quran calls for imprisonment or death to homosexuals and infidels, and condones the mistreatment of women.

Living for Christ in the Muslim World

When we talk with Christian missionaries working in the Muslim world, we often hear remarkable testimonies about Muslims committing their lives to Jesus Christ. As biblical Christianity grows in heavily Muslim nations where the church is persecuted, we seem to see almost the reverse happening in America. A growing number of professing Christians in America, spiritually softened by our easy way of life, are growing lukewarm in their faith. New Christian converts in third world nations are on fire and unashamedly in love with God and His Word. Is this another obvious sign we desperately need revival?

We continually look at the idea of revival as an American thing, but is spiritual revival happening in Muslim nations because of oppression and persecution? Has our vast wealth in America become the enemy of our souls?

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again disciple of Jesus Christ travels around the world sharing the gospel in Muslim nations and training pastors and Christians to reach Muslims with the gospel. Today we take a hard-hitting look at Christianity in America and around the world.

When Political Correctness Runs Rampant

This just a week after struggling comedienne, Kathy Griffin held up a severed head of President Donald Trump, days after a New York City Public Theater production of Shakespeare in the Park stabs a ‘Trump’ lookalike (Caesar) to death in a performance of ‘Julius Caesar,’ and days after Senator Bernie Sanders, in anger, suggested Christians that believe the Bible and work for public office.

Today’s guest is Elijah Abraham, is the founder and executive director of Living Oasis Ministries. Elijah’s story began in Baghdad in 1965 when he was born to an Iraqi Shi’ite Muslim family. Elijah joins us to discuss current events in light of Bible prophecy as well as the political correctness running rampant in America.

The Truth about American Christianity & Islam

Today’s guest is Elijah Abraham of Living Oasis Ministries. We discuss the president’s visit to the Middle East and what’s on the table as he meets with Israeli leaders as well and Palestinian Authority leaders. Will America still defend Israel if they are attacked? What about moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem? Does the Trump administration still oppose a two-state solution?

Where Christians and the American church are concerned, too many churches and leaders have backed away from preaching the hard truths of Scripture while many of us struggle with conforming to this world. Since the average believer has not been well equipped to do ministry and accurately handle God’s Word, what are some of the steps we can take to be more disciplined in prayer and Bible study so we can be effective and fruitful witnesses for Jesus Christ?

Don’t You Dare Bring God into This!

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.

Can’t We All Just Coexist in Peace?

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?

Courageously Standing With Israel

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.
