Are we wasting this blessing called America?
LISTEN NOW! Greg, John, and Pat ask the question if we are wasting the blessing called America. They continue to share how a trumpet blast is taking place. America is a blessed land and although it only represents 5% of the world’s population it consumes a great majority of the world’s resources. Darkness exists today because there is an absence of light. The reason why so many people are trying to come to the United States is because it’s a blessed land. Christians, in particularly those who live in America, are extremely blessed but have they forgotten God? To whom much is given much is expected. We have not been given this wealth so that we can spend it all on ourselves but so that we can share the gospel around the world. Meanwhile it appears that this administration is promoting Islamist in every way. You always know when the devil is lying it’s when his mouth is open. A lie is a lie is a lie! It’s time to seize the opportunity God has given us in this blessed land and not waste it but rather use our blessing to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the world.
Israel Loves on their Enemies
John, Greg, and Pat discuss how Israelis are loving on their enemies in particular Syrians. Syria has been involved in a 2 year civil war which has claimed the lives of over 100,000 people. They continue to share how some of those wounded are seeking medical attention at the Western Galilee Hospital in the northern Israeli town of Nahariya. Israeli soldiers have located Syrians who have been injured and they bring them to the hospital where they receive treatment many who would have died if they were not treated. According to CBN Dr. Massad Barhoum director general of Western Galilee Hospital is quoted as saying “Love your enemies.” When the wounded Syrians come in they are afraid especially the children and they hear words from the medical staff like “Be calm. I love you.” They continue to share how many people today are deceived and don’t know that God loves them. We must speak past their captivity to communicate how much God loves them. 1 John 4:20 says “If anyone says, I love God,” yet hates his brother he is a liar.” Jesus loves you and died on the cross and rose three days later for your sins. He took back the keys of death, hell and the grave so that you can receive him and spend eternity with him.
UPDATE: Navy Yard Massacre: Shooter Obsessed with Violent Video Games
Greg, John, and Pat share an update regarding the Navy Yard Massacre as new details of the shooter, Aaron Alexis, emerge. The “Telegraph” reports that the shooter was obsessed with violent video games. CBN also reports that he had a history of disturbing behavior. They continue to share how we are made in the image of God with the ability to create in our imagination. You can’t feed yourself violent video games involving the splattering of blood, murders and rapes and think these images playing out in your mind will have no effect on you. Jesus said that if you have done it in your mind you have already done it. We have lied to ourselves when we have said we have done it only in our heart or head so that means we haven’t done it. The word of God tells us how we are to respond to things that enter our mind that is not of God in 2 Corinthians 10:4 “The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” The word of God demolishes strongholds. It’s time to get the junk out of your mind and out of your life. If we don’t we are going to continue to have “Navy Yard” massacres all across America.
