Is Turkey on its Way to Becoming a caliphate?
The nation of Turkey has been progressively enduring greater and greater shaking and divisions under the leadership of President Erdogan. As the nation is recovering from the failed military coup just weeks ago, President Erdogan is carrying out his own agenda. CBN is reporting that Turkey may be on its way to becoming an Islamic Republic. “Erdogan has detained over 15,000 people, arrested 8,000, and dismissed 60,000 civil servants.”
This is the reality that Francis Chan brings to the realization when he brings up the history of Russia and China. Because of Russia’s focus on the buildings and the leadership, the everyday believer didn’t know what to do when oppression removed the leadership. But, in the case of the Church in China it was a remarkably different outcome. In China, the Church focused on the Commandments of Jesus to make disciples and thus, the everyday believer had a solid understanding of the simple things, like leading someone to Christ and making disciples. With this understanding, it is no wonder what happened as a consequence of oppression. “…under Mao Zedong, the persecuted Church grew from 2 million to an estimated, about 80 million in these underground gatherings. Why? Because the people, they understood how to minister to other people. They knew how to teach other people.” The question is not, will oppression come to America? The question is, will we know what to do, and remain faithful to Jesus Christ when it does? A storm is in fact being fashioned. Now, what will do in response to God? Will we choose pride or will we choose humility? See the full conversation to understand the reality of what is taking place in Turkey, the importance to know the Commandments of Jesus Christ, and so much more.

We have the choice not to go the way of these Satanists. Ironically enough, The Washington Post cited the very event of a Satanist’s prayer in a Pensacola City Council meeting. As the Church, we have got to dedicate our cities to the Lord, our counties to the Lord, and everything else under his Lordship and leadership. There was a day when America did not exist. But, a day came when a handful of individuals realized that they wanted to live life free, under the leadership of the Lord. Ultimately, the Declaration of Independence was born, and then The Constitution. If we want to keep America, all we have to do is get right before the Lord. Why lose what so many have died for?

Did they Give Away The Internet on September 30, 2016 to Make it a Regular Utility?
These are the very days that call for wisdom for God’s people. More and more is being regulated by the government. It brings an interesting comparison to the words discussed in Revelation 13:16-17, “It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.” Presently, just about everything is controlled by the internet. We must consider the gravity of these events and the importance of these days. Hear the full conversation to understand the importance of what is taking place, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: Nehemiah, control, oppression, Babylonian captivity, and humility. Greg and Steve shared in this segment.
What started off as a clean trip with the best intentions, it was only a matter of time before dirt started to set in, and eventually became an accepted part of the trip. It was to the point that dirt was overwhelming them that it was just part of reality. This progression of dirt is like the progression of sin. We may have the best intentions, but if sin goes unchecked in our lives, we will end up like pigs bathing in the dirt. We no longer see it as uncomfortable but simply a part of life. Regardless of where we are on this journey, we can each turn back to Jesus in repentance and ask Him to wash us and cleanse us. Hear this humorous story that has such a significant purpose, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: family road trips, humor, Grand Canyon, cooking, rocks, tents, camping, and Holiday Inn.
