e81 - The Truth About Trump
On today's program, we dig up the real truth about Donald Trump. Seriously, I've got facts for ya! We'll look at his message, his motives, and even his money. We'll start with a little trip down memory lane and remind you of some things you may have either forgotten or never known about him. And as always, we'll put things in a proper perspective for Christian believers.
e80 - The Truth About the Rapture
On today's program, we're gonna talk RAPTURE! Yes, it's gonna happen! But have you ever given thought to why you believe what you believe about it? Can you explain it to someone who asks you hard questions about it? Why is a pre-tribulation rapture so widely accepted today? Is that correct? Does it matter?
e79 - The Culture War, Corruption, and Pushing Back the Darkness
On today's program, we'll discuss the culture war, how woke companies keep making the same mistakes, more corruption exposed, and what we can do to push back the darkness attempting to overtake our world.
e78 - The Current Tyranny and Their Tools of Division
On today's program, startling evidence that we are now living under tyrannical rule. The United States of America is less united than ever, a direct result of efforts to keep us divided and fighting one another so that we're less likely to notice what evil forces are doing to our nation and the world.
e77 - Dreams, Aliens, and the Coming Deception
On this episode, yes, you read the title correctly. I am indeed going to talk about dreams, aliens, and the coming deception. I will discuss a few actual dreams that I've had regarding the end times. There will be talk of aliens, though likely not how you might think. The bigger focus will be on what the Bible describes as a coming time of deception.
e76 - Getting Back to the Heart of God
On this episode, we're gonna look at God's nature - His true character - which is to say, His amazing love. We'll talk about how we can put our priorities in check by lining up our hearts with His, and we'll also get into some of the current events and see how we can apply what we've learned to that.
e75 - Why Should God Deliver Us?
On this episode, we look at why God chooses to forgive and save, even when it seems some people REALLY don't deserve it. Plus, how can we ever hope to show that kind of grace to people we see as enemies?
e74 - Lifting Our Vision
Often, we are so zoomed in on our current circumstances or trials that we are blinded to anything else. Such an inward focus causes tunnel vision. It not only keeps us from seeing the needs of others, but it can also damage or limit our own faith and prevent us from gaining a more Godly perspective. This episode deals with how we can grasp that 30,000-foot-view that usually eludes us.
e73 - Learning to Discern
How can we know who is really trustworthy and who isn't? We'll talk about this today and look at some ways to train ourselves to see through the lies being thrown at us every day.
e72 - Expecting the Blessing
As Christians, how do we make sure we're in a place to receive the things from God that we need? Do miracles still happen? If it's blessings you want, then this episode is for you!
e71 - Respecting the Process
Back again after a summer break, this episode deals with the importance of yielding ourselves to the process. Whether it's preparation for a new job, new position, especially within the work of the Kingdom, we are not yet what we are becoming. It's the process that gets us there.
e70 - You Hungry for the Truth Yet?
Tired of feasting on lies? On this episode, we give you heaping helpings of Truth, Truth, and MORE TRUTH. We also expose more lies and show you how we have our enemy on the ropes. Plus, some exciting news from Truth Social!
ep69 - In the News: The Assault on Our Most Basic Freedoms
On today's program, we'll look at some of the latest news stories and examine the continued assault on our most basic freedoms. From the right to bear arms to the very right to life itself.
ep68 - Battling Burn-out Like a Boss (as leaders in the faith)
How do we handle that brick wall we all hit from time to time during our walk with God - especially as leaders of the faith. Preachers, teachers, other spiritual leaders, and anyone who God has given a ministry to - at some point, we all get worn down and fatigued. We'll talk about some ways to combat this feeling of burn-out on this episode.
We're Winning, but the Fight is Far from Over (ep67)
The SCOTUS strike down of Roe v. Wade and what that actually means; more on the left's Ministry of Truth; more desperation by Dems losing their power; tweets, tweets, and more tweets; and whatever else I can squeeze into this episode.
For the Record - Faith, Twitter, and Kingdom Response (ep66)
In this episode, I talk about the Twitter buyout, the left's so-called "Ministry of Truth," as well as how we should respond to the constant misrepresentation of Christianity and why it matters.
What is Divine Orchestration? (ep65)
If God is big enough to speak into existence everything that is, then He’s plenty big to turn even your darkest circumstance into something that benefits you. Join me as we look at what this means for us.
Questioning the Unknowns of Our Reality (ep64)
Have you ever thought about how the unexplained mysteries of our reality fit into the picture of God's creation? In this episode, I discuss things like "The Mandela Effect," ghosts, aliens, and such. How should we view these things as Christians? Let's seek out the truth.
Keeping a Kingdom Outlook in a Sin-Wrecked World (ep63)
How do we maintain a Kingdom Outlook when the world around us seems to be in constant turmoil? There are people who are so afraid of pandemics and wars that they're losing hope for tomorrow. This is where we are supposed to bring them hope and encouragement, maintaining a hopeful attitude and genuine positivity about the future. In this short episode, I'll share three keys to keeping a Kingdom Outlook in a sin-wrecked world.
Truth Be Told - Why Christians Must Fight for Free Speech (ep62)
There is a reason why freedom of speech is protected by the 1st Amendment to our Constitution. That particular right is central and crucial to our liberty as a whole. If you aren't free to voice your opinions, beliefs, and your disagreement with government, then you aren't free at all. And as Christians, WE CANNOT BE SILENT. The truth must be told, regardless of consequence.
Understanding the Nature of Evil (ep61)
Hell Hates Humanity. When we begin to understand the nature of evil, we start to recognize its influence in the world around us. So understanding evil and recognizing its tactics is our main topic for this episode.
Gaslighting, Lies, & Cover-ups, EXPOSED (ep60)
Truth matters, and it always comes out. What happens when liars are confronted with indisputable truth? Who's been caught in their own web of lies? We'll look at recent revelations as well as the dangers of deception.
Mandates, Revolutions, and Awakenings (ep59)
In this first episode of 2022, I want to talk about the mandate we have as Christians and lay out a plan going forward as to how we can start a Jesus Revolution. Kingdom Heroes, our time is NOW!
Winter Wishes from the White House, and My Twitter Flak (ep58)
In my final podcast of 2021: I talk about Biden's "winter of death," some flak I caught on Twitter recently, and the WHOLE TRUTH about masks. You do NOT want to miss this one, folks! SHARE!!!
Our Daily Bread (ep57)
In this non-political episode (lol), I discuss a problem many Christians deal with - or fail to deal with. How is your relationship with Jesus? Are you cultivating it? Is it flourishing? Or is it even something you think about? Why is a close relationship with our Creator so important, and how can we make it grow?
Answering Your Questions, and An Ignored Crisis (ep56)
This episode features some of your comments and questions. I'll talk about America's Biblical foundations, the dangers of over-indulgence, the Big Government Monster, and more.
Is the Tide Turning? (ep55)
I'll talk about some of the recent court activity that certainly seems encouraging, and I'll reiterate our need to press in and keep fighting to advance truth and light in our world.
The Great Rebellion Continues (ep.54)
On this episode, I'll be talking about how so many things we see taking us in the wrong direction is all just a continuation of what I call "The Great Rebellion" that started when Lucifer decided he wanted to be greater than God. Plus, we'll refocus our mission somewhat for the show and tell you how that will impact things moving forward.
Episode 53: Our Future is NOT Dystopian
Worried about where America is headed? Concerned about the coming of the end? Let's cast aside those fears and embrace the coming glory!
Episode 52: The Invisible Enemy
There are indeed dark spiritual forces at work in the world. They are our unseen, invisible enemy. We have to recognize and expose them. In the mighty name of Jesus, call them out and rebuke them and their deceptive and divisive hold on our neighbors, our friends and our family members. It is absolutely crucial that we stop all the arguing and recognize what's really happening. If not, then we're just letting ourselves get played.
Episode 51: What Doesn't Belong
Are there some things that don't belong in a church service? I'm sure the answer is yes, but when it comes to rattling off a list of things that shouldn't take place in church it's pretty easy for us to get way off on a tangent. Our opinion on what doesn't belong often depends greatly on our background, the culture, and generally what we're used to. If it's something we don't understand, we may end up condemning it unjustly. Are we guilty of passing judgment on things simply due to our own lack of understanding?
Episode 50: Choosing a Better Life
Why do I have to endure pain, sickness, tragedy, emotional scars, etc? On this episode, I want to deal with the trials we face from a slightly different perspective. And I think we'll see that, too often, we get in our own way when it comes to conquering the trying times we all endure. It doesn't matter how bad you have it, your attitude does not have to be ruled by your circumstances. You CHOOSE whether or not to let that happen. If you're willing to put in some effort and really want your life to improve, you CAN choose to change your outlook and better your life. And there's help.
Episode 49: Love Above and Beyond
On this episode, I talk about some ways that we can love above and beyond - going all out for one another. God's Word actually teaches us to continually try to "one-up" one another in showing honor and affection. So, how can we achieve this caliber of love for each other? It's time to step up our commitment to loving our fellowman. It's time to take love to the next level.
Episode 48: The Truth About Witnessing
In this special UNINTERRUPTED podcast, I am joined by my good friend and pastor, Aaron Zielinske. Our great calling as believers in Christ is to replicate ourselves - to witness to others and make more disciples. This is the Great Commission. However, we often tend to place undue limits upon ourselves. We make excuses and convince ourselves that we can't really do that much. Pastor Aaron and I take a deep dive into the importance of witnessing and what it truly means to make disciples.
Episode 47: Living Dead
There has long been a fascination with the idea of zombies, or the living dead. Have you ever pondered this: Why was God so adamant that Adam and Eve be cut off from the Tree of Life? What if our physical existence - though corrupted by sin - had access to immortality? Might it still age and grow feeble due to the curse of sin, and yet, never die? At some point, dying would be preferable, but you can't. Though still alive, you would be as the living dead. Granted, this is mere conjecture. There is another way, however, that we become like the living dead. Listen and find out!
Episode 46: Tools of the Trade
I believe there is an ongoing effort to silence, stamp out, and otherwise control the notion of a free-thinking society. This effort is tied directly to the desire to squash Christianity. If people depend on God as their source of life and liberty, then government lacks a level of power and control that the corrupt among them crave. There are many tools of the trade (so-to-speak) which are used to turn our dependence away from God and onto government. I'll discuss some of those tools in this episode, as well as how we can avoid them.
Episode 45: Are You Comfy?
As believers in Christ, we aren't meant to be on the sidelines. There are no bystanders in the kingdom of God, but there are DOERS of the Word. We are not meant to be comfortable when evil is lurking. We are meant to overcome it with good. Don't believe the lie that you can't make a difference, that there's really nothing of consequence that you can do. We have a calling to leave behind our comfort zone and be heroes for the kingdom. In this uninterrupted episode, we'll talk about this calling, as well as the concept of servant-leadership.
Episode 44: Foundation Is Key
What we build on is important. You can't just erect a house on any old thing. No, you first need to lay a good, solid, firm foundation. THEN, you can start to build the framework. On this episode, we'll deal with this concept as it relates to both our country and our lives as Christians.
Episode 43: Unity or Conformity?
We are doing something new here at Great Commission Ministries - we are combining our regular podcast with video and adding a new aspect to the program. These shows will now be found on our YouTube Channel, and we are also adding a video channel on the Rumble platform. I'll have more info on that in the near future.
On this episode, I wanna talk a bit about the recent calls for "unity." Those doing this speak of unity, when what they really want is conformity. As usual, I'll look at what the Bible has to say on the topic, and we'll try to get the proper perspective.
Episode 42: The Hope We Have
On this episode, we're talking about misplaced hope. Too many of us tend to invest an unhealthy amount of faith in man - who is flawed - rather than in God - who is completely incorruptible. Some thought we were doomed when Trump became president. Others now think we're doomed since Biden is in office. But is it possible some of us forgot that our hope is not in man? Isn't God on the throne, regardless of who's in the Oval Office? We live in a world that seems to be without hope. It's a world that too often puts its trust in corruptible things and people. But there IS hope. And this hope is for all mankind.
Episode 41: Stay or Go? Making Sense of the Social Media Exodus
Many people who are fed up with the censorship are opting to leave Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, in favor of less restrictive platforms like MeWe, Parler, and Rumble. While I understand the frustration, I believe there is more to consider here. In the midst of all the cancel culture, why would you cancel yourself? If our voices are to be heard, leaving Facebook or Twitter isn't the answer. Don't leave a mission field just because of a little opposition. Don't give up ground to the enemy.
Episode 40: Bridging the Divide
Our true enemy will use any and every tool at his disposal to try and cause division, especially within the church. How do we recognize what's really at work when we're in the heat of debate or argument with our fellow believer? And how might we apply this to the divide between us and those who may not believe, but instead staunchly oppose us? How can we hope to overcome the things that tend to separate us? HINT: There is a one-word answer.
Episode 39: Cancel Culture - Kissing Free Speech Goodbye
It appears that the purge has begun. Indeed, the cancel culture we've been seeing for some time now is pushing into full "purge" mode. Conservative voices have been muzzled in the recent past, but now it seems to be rapidly escalating. Cancel culture is a cancerous disease that is infecting and spreading rapidly through our society. So, what are we supposed to do? One thing is certain: We can't be silent. However, our true source of freedom isn't found within the founding documents of the USA but within our personal relationship with Christ. So How do we keep it all in proper perspective? LISTEN & SHARE!
Episode 38: Prayer and Fasting - Between You and God
In this episode, I want to discuss the importance and the benefits of fasting. We'll look at different ways to fast, how it isn't just about abstaining from food, and also the relationship between fasting and prayer. The act of fasting should help bring us into a closer and more focused communion with the Lord. And it is something that must be done in the right manner and with the correct motivation in order for it to be effective and beneficial for us. Finally, we'll apply this to our lives today in this turbulent sociopolitical climate.
COMMENT. SHARE. SUPPORT. And thanks for listening.
Episode 37: Accept Rebuke Graciously, or Reject Correction Stubbornly?
At some point in all our lives, we all get set-straight by our parents, our employers, or perhaps even by our peers. What about when it comes from a spiritual leader in our lives? How do we receive that rebuke? Do we take the correction to heart, or do we rebelliously reject it? When that corrective instruction comes, we must make a choice: Do what's right, or deal with the consequences of going our own way. In this episode, we're gonna look at the reason for correction, what it can accomplish in us if received, and how damning it can be if rejected. As we face a new year, what better time to strive to be more holy. Let's DO THIS!
Episode 36: Our Freedoms vs Our Calling
While there are definite matters to righteously be at odds with, we should not be continually at odds with people. Our focus as Christians ought not be on winning arguments, but on winning souls. So how do we separate issues from individuals? Also on this episode, we'll look at what happens when our unique American perspective skews our religious views, plus we'll feature some biblical insight from a man I deeply respect - my pastor and my friend, Aaron Zielinske. Remember to share podcast!
Episode 35: Covid is Real; the Crisis is Not
Everywhere we look nowadays, we see people who have been frightened into or guilted into wearing a face mask. What do the numbers really tell us about the deadliness of the Chinese virus? Why does all the hype and panic persist? What possible motive for keeping us in fear could those in power have? This episode will take on these questions and more. And, oh yeah...fear is a liar. So realize when people are using fear to control you, they are lying to you.
Episode 34: Whatever Happened to Civil Discourse?
My Dad's Final Sermon
In the last truly coherent conversation with our dad, he said, "We ain't got nothing made if we can't get to the point where we love everybody. What we don't agree with is between them and the Lord. We're just supposed to love 'em." His final little sermonette held within it a simple yet fundamental truth, and it's what everything else boils down to in the end. If you don't have love, you don't have anything.
