Increasing Persecution of Christians in India and Beyond

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer in Jesus Christ, travels around the world teaching and equipping pastors and Christians where persecution is a daily occurrence.  Many of them risk their lives, traveling many hours to join other believers in Christian fellowship.

Elijah just returned from India, a Hindu nation where the government might say they allow people to worship freely, but persecution and the murder of Christians is accelerating rapidly. Elijah joins us to talk about the plight of Christians in India, and also share his thoughts on how prepared Christians in America are if we face similar persecution in the coming years.

Is Israel Being Set Up for Invasion?

The Bible teaches that Israel will be invaded one day and many will lose their lives as Satan makes one final effort to discredit God’s promises to His chosen people. Most of the world will probably support this invasion because they are being deceived into thinking Israel is the problem or even the evil bully while her neighboring Muslim nations are victims of Israeli “oppression.”

Gary Kah of Hope for the World just returned from a trip to Israel, during which thousands of rockets were shot into Israel by the Palestinians and our secular media ignored it. Why is it when these attacks happen, all we ever see on the “news” is when Israel retaliates to protect itself? They show pictures of children caught up in the violence and try to convince us Israel wants to kill innocent women and children. We also talk with Gary about events around the world that point to a coming one world government—Globalism—and the sinister plans of Globalist Politicians in our own nation to undermine President Trump’s Nationalist agenda.

Growing Confusion, Fear and Violence

While God is a God of order, Satan is a master of deception, confusion and chaos. As our world continues to spin into confusion, it is apparent who is calling the shots: The accuser of the brethren, father of lies, and enemy of God. As Christians we should be able to see through the deception and fog, but too many believers seem to be spending less time in God’s Word and more time with things of this world. As a result, our vision becomes blurred to the point we cannot perceive and discern deception from truth. One interesting phenomenon we are witnessing is a self-proclaimed (formerly) “Christian Nation” having more people abandon biblical Christianity while in restricted and Muslim dominated nations, the gospel is being proclaimed and people are coming to saving faith in Jesus Christ. Elijah Abraham of Living Oasis Ministries is a former Muslim and now a passionate born-again believer who travels the world equipping Christians and church leaders to share the gospel in the Muslim world. He joins us to discuss what he is witnessing in both American churches and those in heavily Muslim nations.

Dismissing Doctrine, Islam, Witchcraft

Last week, some media outlets covered a story of a group of Witches gathering to cast a curse on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Their curse called for him to suffer physically and emotionally and lead to his eventual death. The secular outlets that covered it mostly laughed it off as foolishness. But to dismiss witches casting spells may be foolish and ignorant as well. Should these curses be dismissed or taken seriously?

Elijah Abraham has traveled to dozens of countries sharing the gospel with Muslims, and equipping Christian pastors and leaders to share the gospel in their nations. Some of these nations are ones where witch doctors and spiritual shamans cast similar spells. Abraham also equips Christians in nations where going public with your Christian faith might be met with violent opposition. He joins us to share his ministry experiences, and to discuss the effectiveness and maturity of professing Christian Churches in our own nation as we continue to see compromise with the world.

Mormon No Longer

In the final segment this morning, Mike and David look at an important announcement from leadership of the Mormon Church: they will no longer call themselves “Mormons” so they can, in their words, emphasize their “Christian” doctrine. Those of us who understand the Bible compared to the foundational beliefs of Mormonism realize this is pure deception, and we’ll explore the potential reasons they are making this change in name only.

We’ll also look at an interfaith religious coalition’s “Peace Caravan” headed to Israel to promote a peace treaty between Israel and the nations committed to her destruction.

In the first segment, we continue our look at “30 Biblical People You Need to Know” with Pastor Randy White. Our subjects include Saul, King David, Solomon, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, John the Baptist, Nehemiah, King Herod and Daniel.

The Challenge and Opportunity of Islam’s Growth

When you see someone who is a Muslim, what is the first thing that pops into your mind? Fear that he might be a radical terrorist? Or an opportunity to share the Gospel with him? Truth be told many Christians probably experience both initial reactions to some extent. Or perhaps you feel nothing because you believe that Christians and Muslims worship the same God.

The relationship and conflict between Biblical Christianity and Islam is a unique one; and there is a systematic attempt to blur the lines between Christianity and Islam, the world’s two largest religions. All of this creates a type of “spiritual paralysis” for Christians when the subject of Islam comes up.

James Walker of watchman.org has written a new book contrasting the “Jesus” in the Quran with the true Jesus of the Bible. He joins us to draw those distinctions and give some practical advise on how we can share the gospel with Muslims or people who think both religions worship the same God.

Is Biblical Prophecy Being Ignored in the Church?

An estimated 30-40% of the Word of God deals with prophecy: Prophecy points Old Testament people to the coming of Jesus the Messiah, and indicates how Jesus returns one day to judge all men and establish His everlasting Kingdom. These are the two most significant events the world will ever experience, so why is Bible Prophecy practically ignored or discounted in more and more churches?

Gary Kah of Hope For the World is a student of biblical prophecy and has researched and written about the coming one world government and religion the Bible says will happen just before the return of the Lord. We’ll discuss the dangers of ignoring biblical prophecy along with looking at events in the Middle East that might be signalling the fulfillment of prophecy in our lifetime.

The Onslaught of Darwinism, and Attacks on Franklin Graham

As public education increasingly replaces the truth of God’s Word with the theories of men, students are often subjected to dangerous schools of thought aimed at getting them to conform to a secular worldview. IN order to do this, they must necessarily abandon the biblical worldview. Nothing affirms this better than the way Darwinism is taught as truth rather than theory, even though science continues to confirm the Bible’s account of creation.

Tim Foutz of Ratio Christi Ministries joins us this morning to equip us with the truth to refute Darwinism and evolution, helping us prepare our children for the deception bombarding them in public education.

We also look at the continuing discrimination and persecution of anyone who professes to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Franklin Graham, scheduled to speak at a rally of 30 Christian Churches in England, is facing fierce opposition from Muslims, government officials in England, and even from some LGBTQ affirming churches calling on the government to revoke his visa to come to England and preach.

Where is the American Church Headed?

The Church of Jesus Christ is called to be light and salt to a dying world. We should be influencing culture by living out the truths in Scripture and sharing the gospel and the eternal truth of God’s Word. But instead of influencing secular culture we are seeing secular culture influence the church. This leads many to compromise and conform to the world. On the other hand, sincere missionaries through the years have gone to other nations with the true gospel, but now we have been responsible for exporting things like Word Faith theology and other false gospels.

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer joins us this morning to give us some insight on his recent trip to Africa. We look at how the American version of Christianity is becoming more seeker sensitive and how America, once known for biblical discipleship, is now consumed with comfort, leisure, wealth (compared to the world), and luxury – all things that lead us to love this world while losing our focus on eternal things.

Is Middle East War Knocking on the Door?

When we take our eyes off Israel and the Middle East, we tread on dangerous ground. The Bible tells us the final days before Jesus’ return will find Israel and The Middle East front and center. And a lot is happening there these days that the secular media is choosing to downplay, misrepresent, or ignore completely.

In Ezekiel, God says he will drag Israel’s enemies toward her to set off a great conflict, ushering in the final days. And today we see Russia and China increasing its might and influence in the Middle East. And we see increasingly powerful enemies like Turkey and Iran stirring up trouble against Israel.

Gary Kah of Hope For the World has studied and written about the coming One World Government and religion, and studied biblical prophecy for decades. He joins us this morning for an important update and reminder for Christians to be about the Father’s work in these uncertain times.

Refuting the Deceptions of Islam

Human nature is such that if a lie is repeated often enough people will believe it if they are not grounded in the truth of God and His Word. We have witnessed this in the areas of abortion and acceptance of homosexuality within our culture and even in many professing Christian churches. A vast majority of Americans used to oppose these issues, but now over time many people – even Christians – have caved to culture and generally accept both practices.

The same appears to be happening with Islam. Deceivers and those they have deceived keep repeating lies about Islam and an increasing number of Americans jumped on board. Even in the Christian Church an increasing number of pastors and church members think Islam is an “Abrahamic faith” and that Muslims and Christians worship the same god. But the Quran and other Islamic “holy books” contradict these ideas. And certainly, anyone familiar with the Bible knows that Allah of the Quran is clearly not the God of the Bible.

What other deceptions about Islam are people accepting today as truth? Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer joins us to discuss the issues. Elijah travels around the world equipping and teaching pastors about Islam and how to reach Muslims with the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

Celebrating Our Independence

Millions of Americans will take a day off from work tomorrow to gather with family and friends; to cook out, relax and attend fireworks displays. Let’s not forget millions of others have given their lives over the past two hundred and forty-two years so that we might enjoy the blessings of freedom in a Republic once established under God. Most importantly, remember to take the time to thank our Creator for the freedoms we enjoy under the Constitution that was established.

Sadly however, this time of celebration is tempered by real threats to our freedom of speech as we see hateful rhetoric ramping up due in part to liberal activists and radicals who hate Christ, the truth, and what America represents.

Elijah Abraham has lived in Iraq under an oppressive dictatorship. He is well aware of the threats posed to our freedoms by our own government, media, universities, celebrities, and hired protestors as well as radicalized Muslims. Progressives are pushing their globalist agenda including banning expressions of the Christian faith, strict gun control, and open borders. Elijah joins us to help us understand the delicate balance of freedom and responsibility – not only as Americans, but as disciples of Jesus Christ.

Listener’s Show: Your Questions and Comments

Here are some of the questions and comments from this past week:

The large company I am applying for proudly supports the LGBTQ agenda and contributes to related causes. I was excited about the opportunity before I learned this, but now am conflicted. What do you think?
My daughter just told me she is bisexual and I’m in shock. She grew up in church, went to a private Christian school and attends a Christian college. What angers me is the church generally accepts LGBTQ lifestyles now.
Please clarify a Scripture you shared on a recent podcast, 1 John 4:3 about spirits that deny Jesus came in the flesh and are not of God.
You said American Christianity is looking more like Babylon these days than the church Jesus shed His blood to redeem. I sense this as well but could you expound on it please?
Here in Canada, we don’t have anything like your show and the sell-out by the church to government has already happened. Please continue warning Americans!
My husband and I are heartbroken. Our 12 year-old son just announced he is really a woman. We’re completely caught off guard and don’t even know how to confront this.

The Difficulty in Finding a Biblical Church

There are still some sound biblical Christian churches in America; a “remnant,” to be sure. But a growing number look more and more like the world than they do an assembly of God’s called-out people. A difficulty arises when you have been a member of a historically sound church, but it has been in the midst of a transformation where it is adopting the beliefs and values of this fallen world. This gradual shift is often so subtle that you cannot see the drift away from God and toward secular humanism.

Pastor Randy White has studied this trend and joins us to discuss how this drift of the church away from God has transpired, how we can spot it, and how to find a biblical church in a sea of growing heresy and apostasy.

What Happened to My Church?

Many Christians in America are asking that question these days as we see a growing number of churches change. The Gospel of reconciliation being replaced with consumerism and our “best life now”; moves of the Holy Spirit being replaced with emotional manipulation through loud music and fog machines; and churches that look more and more like the world Jesus told us would hate us and that we should hate.

But the changes introduced into American Christianity have been so subtle that many people do not even notice them until one day we suddenly feel like a stranger and alien in the very church we attended for years.

Jan Markell of Olive Tree Views and Understanding the Times Radio joins us to talk about the growing concerns of serious Christians about what they see happening in many of our churches these days.

The Dangers of Masculinity

The American Psychological Association recently released a study calling out what it perceives as the dangers of traditional masculinity warning that it leads men to hating women and LGBTQ people. As men are “marketed” to by corporate America we see confusing messages on what it means to be a man these days.

Are we to be the strong, silent, rugged, macho guy? Or the sensitive, nurturing, submissive guy who sits back quietly and just accepts things the way they are?

If we listen to the world we will be continually confused about what it means to be a man. But not surprisingly God’s Word has a lot to say about what real men are.

This morning, Mike discusses this issue with Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute. What does it mean to be a man of God in today’s world?

We also look at an interesting perspective from a Christian musician who says that youth these days are being conditioned to worship their own self-image, and since the world is sending wrong messages to our youth about what their image should look like it is leading to dire consequences for an entire generation.

The Feminizing of American Christianity

God created men and women equal but uniquely different. In His master plan, men are to be strong and loving leaders and wives are to respectfully submit to their husband’s leadership. The Christian church in America needs real godly men, but at the time when they are needed most many are confused about what it means to be a true man of God. The world and its institutions that hate God have successfully minimized and redefined manhood, reducing many men to confused, quivering bowls of jelly instead of principled, strong leaders for the church and their families. And some believe that church leadership is also responsible for accommodating this feminizing of Christian men because they are not teaching us what it means to be Godly leaders of wives, families, and communities.

Pastor Carl Gallups joins us to discuss how society’s emasculation of men is infecting American Christianity, leading to dire consequences.
