Believers in the pre-tribulation Rapture are very familiar with the prophetic symbolism contained in the Jewish wedding ceremony. But how many prophecy students know about additional pre-trib symbolism in the Galilean wedding? Brent Miller Jr. joins Gary Stearman as he reveals the details of his best-selling film, Before the Wrath, an evangelistic experience described by some as the best film ever made on the rapture of the church. Make sure you stay tuned for the special 10-minute preview of the film.
In a perfect world where everyone, 1. loves God with all their heart, soul and mind, and 2. treats their neighbors like they take care of themselves, and 3. leans not on their own understanding, but entirely trusts the Lord for guidance—there could exist the possibility for the coexistence of an Israeli and Palestinian state living side by side. In this update, Gary Stearman and Bill Salus discuss why that scenario will likely never happen.
Gary Stearman says it best … the Bible is always right! Ignore the biblical naysayers and just trust the Lord! Gary interviews archaeologist Titus Kennedy, an adjunct professor at Biola University and a certified world traveler in search of ancient history and Bible-confirming relics. Titus has produced a remarkable book, Unearthing the Bible, a chronological tour through many of the Bible’s best known and little known discoveries, uncovered down through the centuries. While you may have heard of Nebuchadnezzar and King David and seen historical proof of their existence, who ever heard of the Nazareth Inscription? This stone tablet references an edict from a Roman Caesar, forbidding the removal of a body from a stone sepulcher! Post resurrection of Jesus no doubt! Beginning in Genesis, Titus traces these discoveries century by century, giving us the background information we need to place them in proper chronological order, bringing these amazing relics to life in a new and unique way. Ancient wars, slaves, tablets, kings and many little known pieces of the puzzle prove the Bible to be trustworthy. A real faith builder!
When David penned Psalm 22, did he know he was writing about the crucifixion of the Messiah, 1000 years before it even happened? Did Jesus quote from this Psalm while he was hanging on the cross, taking away the sins of the world? From the cross, he referred to Himself as a worm, a little-known cryptic reference to His unique role in the redemption of mankind. This Scarlet Sacrifice was filled with hidden symbolism from the Jewish Temple, visible only in the Hebrew text. Who can fully understand why Jesus died for our sins? And how often do we stop to appreciate His ultimate sacrifice? Once again, Gary comes full circle, back to his three favorite words … God is love.
Bill Salus has been one of our favorite guests since we first met almost 10 years ago. Bill has created a chronological timeline for the Bible’s future prophecies, many of which were written over 2,700 years ago! And here we are today, watching in amazement, as the nations fall into their long-prophesied positions and these ancient “war prophecies” appear ready to spring to life. The Bible predicts a series of future battles between Israel and several countries in the news today … Russia, Iran, Turkey, Syria, along with a few other long time enemies of Israel. Do these future wars happen before or after the rapture? Will we see the Russian/Iranian invasion of Israel? Or the destruction of Damascus? Will Iran acquire nuclear weapons? Gary and Bill have the answers!
It may be the most controversial subject in Christendom today—the rapture of the Church. It’s a critical Bible doctrine that has its share of skeptics and bashers. Will be whisked up to heaven by Jesus “in the twinkling of an eye,” or will we be left behind to face the Antichrist, endure a 7-year Tribulation, and face certain death? We’ve brought in the A-Team for this fascinating subject—Gary Stearman and prophecy legend Thomas Ice, the Executive Director of the Pre-Trib Research Center. And what a conversation they had! Better put on your deep thinking cap. These guys address the issues with logic and Scripture and defend the Blessed Hope!
You know the rest of the 1st verse in John’s Gospel … “and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” Exactly when was the beginning? And who exactly was the Word? Gary enters some uncharted waters here, reaching some heartfelt conclusions about the love God has for each of us and how He made a way for us to spend eternity with Him. There is a dark side to human history. The battle of good and evil continues unabated from time immemorial. We all wonder, what would possess the Creator of EVERYTHING to sacrifice His own life for sinful mankind? We know God had a plan, but we don’t know all of the details. Today we see through a glass darkly, but someday, face to face, we will fully understand! We do know this … God is love!
In a shocking new discovery, Bible researcher and Dead Sea Scrolls expert, Ken Johnson, has discovered the ancient calendar of the Essenes, a group of about 4,000 Jews who rejected the teachings of the Jewish Priesthood. The Essenes had their own calendar that reflects the age of grace and feast days and holidays that don’t line up with the lunar calendar used by the Jews. Ready for this? The Essenes used their calendar to prophecy that the Messiah would arrive in 32 AD, the approximate year Jesus would be sacrificed for our sins! Ken shows us how Jesus was using the calendar of the Sons of Zadok (Essenes) to celebrate the feast days at the proper times, and how often those celebrations took place on Sundays! He uses this discovery to prove that the Jewish calendar has been corrupted by the rabbis to divert attention away from the arrival of the Messiah at the exact moment in time His return was prophesied. As always, Gary and Ken bring us information you won’t hear about anywhere else!
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 Apostle Paul caught a glimpse of the 3rd heaven. God rides on the backs of the Cherubim. Ezekiel saw a magnificent craft, a wheel within a wheel, that defies human imagination. Air Force pilots are coming forward describing their personal UFO encounters that they claim are “not of this world.” Top secret government security clearances are being breached to warn the public that our military certainly does have the wreckage of alien craft, made from materials that do not exist on our planet. Are there female angels? Perhaps from the dark side? Who exactly are these interdimensional principalities and powers that the Bible describes? And why should a Christian even care about UFOs? Signs and lying wonders are about to arrive and we want to war the world about the great deception. Join Gary and L.A. Marzulli as they take a biblical dive into the Scriptures. Full UFO disclosure appears to be imminent! When we go up, they show up?
