Philippians chapter 2 is one of the most important, insightful and beautiful chapters in the entire Bible. Written in A.D. 62 as Paul was being held in a Roman prison, this chapter explores the mind of Christ, the love of God, the rapture, the humanity and sacrifice of Jesus and the pattern for successful Christian living, no matter the circumstances. Filled with familiar and brilliant passages of Scripture, we read of the hope we have in Christ for a bright future. Paul says it best … “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Divine justice is coming. As Gary likes to say, “hang in there … just a little bit longer.”
Some call it “the grid of the gods.” Were the giants of Genesis 6, the biblical Nephilim, here in America long before Christopher Columbus? Evidence seems to strongly confirm that. Based on the effort and research of biblical explorer and world traveler L.A. Marzulli it seems they were connected to some of the most iconic places on Earth like Stonehenge and Jerusalem. Throughout the world, archaeologists and researchers have discovered ancient sites that have been aligned with remarkable precision to record the passage of each solstice and equinox. How did these ancient people, without the use of advanced trigonometry and modern building equipment, manage to construct these sites? How did these simple people manage to accurately measure the 18.6 year lunar cycle? Why are sites all over the world seemingly connected to each other and the movements in the heavens? L.A. Marzulli remains on the trail and he’s connected all of these mysteries through a little-known place in New Hampshire! Follow the trail of breadcrumbs and you will be amazed at what he has discovered!
None of us have had a Damascus Road experience like the Apostle Paul. His life was marked by trials, severe persecutions and ultimately a beheading. As he wrote the book of Phiippians from a jail cell, we have to be in awe at his joy and commitment to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He referenced The Day of Christ” three times in the first chapter of this prison epistle. It was his motivation to keep going strong, knowing a better day was just ahead. For us, that’s the rapture! The human experience is characterized by a non-stop string of emotions … tears, anger, sadness, love, joy … how could Paul possibly be joyful given his circumstances? Perhaps the words of the Philippian jailor, whose life he saved, made it all worthwhile … “what must I do to be saved?” Join Gary Stearman as he looks at the life of Paul and how we can all develop the proper pattern for Christian living, despite our ever-changing personal circumstances and the whirlwind of confusion, destruction and suffering we see all around us. This is a message of Christian maturity and Godly, purposeful living at its very best. We all are eagerly awaiting the rapture, but there is still work to be done! Let’s finish strong!
The rebuilding of the Jewish Temple is one of the most important end-time prophecies, a sure-fire indication that we really are living in the last days. For many years, the Temple Institute in Jerusalem has been working diligently on recreating all of the artifacts needed to reestablish Temple worship … priestly garments, Temple vessels, a 24-karat golden Menorah, … all they need now is the Ark of the Covenant! No place on Earth is more important than Jerusalem, the apple of God’s eye. Biblical archaeologist, Dr. Randall Price, joins Gary Stearman to discuss the past, the present and future of this great city. How close we are to that 3rd Temple? Maybe closer than you think!
Heaven. It’s a place we’ve all dreamed about since the day we first discovered God’s wonderful plan for our future. Almost 2,000 years ago, Jesus told His disciples He would go away to prepare a special place just for them. And for us! It’s been almost 2,000 years and I don’t know about you, but I’m ready and waiting for His return! As our world disintegrates into chaos right before our eyes, Larry takes our focus to an entirely new place … free of pain, tears, violence and death and the very best part? We’ll get to experience a lifetime of joy with Jesus. Join Gary Stearman and Larry Ollison as they discuss our journey home…our eternal home!!
The human experience is a constant battleground, full of tests and temptations. How do we obtain wisdom and understanding to navigate our time on Earth? James, the half brother of Jesus, wrote a passionate chapter in the book that bears his name, including several enduring verses that many of us know by heart. He understood testing and temptation. He understood human frailty and fallibility. He understood the Word of Truth. He spoke of the Law of Liberty … the Law of Grace. How are you doing in your Christian walk these days? Are you overcoming temptation and walking close with the Lord? Gary shares his innermost thoughts from James chapter 1, a personal letter that should motivate each of us to Godly living.
The God of the Bible has a batting average of 1,000 when it comes to predicting the future. The prophets of old, Daniel, Isaiah, Ezekiel, the Apostle John … they wrote of events that would happen 2,700 years in the future, naming people, places and events that would occur once Israel was brought back to their Promised Land. That would be our generation! While the world worships psychics and prognosticators where is the reverence and awe for God’s inerrant Word? Much of the church today is in the dark when it comes to understanding Bible prophecy. Leave it to passionate author Jeff Kinley to help us understand the proper way to interpret futuristic events. No sensationalism. No doom and gloom. No newspaper exegesis. Just a realistic look at the future as it was written so many years ago. If the word prophecy scares you, or you are concerned about your eternal future, Jeff’s personal testimony and salvation experience will resonate in your soul. Gary and Jeff discuss the foundations of Bible prophecy, the controversies and misunderstandings, the date setters and where we are on God’s calendar today.
Over 2,500 years ago, the prophets of the Old Testament described a series of dramatic events that would take place in the distant future. These prophecies of future wars and strategic alignments in the Middle East have given students of Bible prophecy a clear roadmap to follow. If … you know where to look! Join Gary and Bill as they talk about his latest book today, The Final Prophecies. This new book brings the 22 chapters of Revelation to a close, focusing specifically on the last 3.5 years of the 7-year Tribulation.
Gary continues to explore his “favorite chapters in the Bible,” this week focusing his attention on the deeper spiritual concepts found in Colossians chapter one. Some might call this chapter one of the foundation stones of Scripture. The Apostle Paul wrote a brilliant and heartfelt treatise about Jesus, written while chained to a Roman guard in a Roman prison around 60 AD. If you doubt Divine inspiration, this chapter stands as a proof text. Referencing many complicated thoughts that are “hard to be understood,” Paul shares some intimate thoughts and descriptions of our Savior that defy our limited human understanding. The one who left His heavenly throne and walked from town to town in dusty sandals, healing the sick and making the blind to see, eventually gave His life for all of humanity. Who can fathom that they killed the One who created everything? The One Scripture says is preeminent in all things. Paul references “the hidden mystery” among the Gentiles, the hope we have in Christ, and our inconceivable destiny of sharing eternity as a member of His own body. One day soon we will understand! Heaven awaits!
When it comes to interpreting the Bible properly, the keywords would surely be context, context, context. In what is sure to be a controversial and eye-opening program, Gary and long-time prophecy stalwart, Dr. Thomas Ice address several key prophetic passages in Matthew chapters 24 and 25. Do we find the rapture of the church in these chapters? Who are the elect who are mentioned? Why did Jesus speak in parables and were these parables given for the benefit of the Church? Or for Israel? Many Christians fail to make the distinction between prophecies directed to the Church and prophecies directed to Israel, creating great confusion and a difference of opinion about the timing of the return of Christ. Gary and Tommy set the record straight and clear up a major area of biblical debate.
For close to 2,000 years, Christians have eagerly anticipated the promised return of Jesus … our blessed hope! Around 20 years after the resurrection, the Apostle Paul wrote to the church at Thessalonica and told them not to be concerned about “the times and seasons.” Paul once described the rapture of the church as a “mystery,” but then he proceeds to tell us that this day should not catch us by surprise as children of the light! As we see the birth pains of the end times bringing the world to its knees, Paul offers encouragement to the faithful, bringing both comfort and hope! Will we experience any of the wrath of God in the Tribulation? Join Gary as he teaches from one of his all-time favorite chapters in the Bible, I Thessalonians 5.
