87 | The only time that Jesus asked if a person was healed

86 | How do you secretly feel about yourself?

7/25/2022
In this podcast, I talk about our secret thoughts. The things we secretly think about ourselves. Many of us have secrets. Things we think, but have never told anyone. We secretly wonder if God really loves us, or if God loves others more than you.

85 | Catching the flow of the Holy Spirit

7/4/2022
I read an interesting article a while back on CBN entitled Holy Spirit Outpouring by Vernell Windsor where she talked about a church service she attended in North Carolina with a friend. During the service, she became so drunk in the Spirit, that she could no longer stand and was crawling around on her hands and knees.

These threats even included two Russian fighter jets that briefly flew into Swedish airspace armed with nuclear warheads on March 2, 2022. But this leads to a bigger question: Do any of the Bible’s...

81 | The Bible and its GIANTS: What does archaeology have to say

3/11/2022
In this podcast, I discuss the several mentions of giants found throughout the Old Testament. Of course, atheists, and their ilk, enjoy mocking the Bible and the Christian faith because of these giants, referring to them as little more than myths. But is there any historical and archaeological evidence that these giants existed.

12/10/2021
It is generally believed that the Roman Catholic church made December 25 the day of Christ's birth to replace a pagan holiday. But that may not have been the case. In fact, Christ's birthday was probably tied to the Feast of Annunciation.

78 | What the Septuagint Bible tells us about fallen angels and spiritual warfare

11/19/2021
We are living in perilous times as governments of all political stripes seem intent on restricting people’s liberties and freedoms, either under the guise of protecting us from COVID or banning speech that some consider offensive, because it disagrees with their beliefs. In this podcast, I discuss the Septuagint’s odd translation of a Bible verse in Deuteronomy that may help explain why this is happening.

Well it happened to me recently and involved an incident of something that took place probably 45 years ago. It was the 1970s. I was in my twenties and driving an old Rambler station wagon. It was a dusty grey...

72 | Are governments and SPI-B behind the spirit of fear?

5/28/2021
There is a small group in Britain that goes by the acronym SPI-B.
