Allah is Satan and Jesus is God (Part Thirteen)

Today on PTIB Jimmy DeYoung makes contact with Ken Timmerman, in the catbird seat in Washington, and the two talk about geo-political events happening around our world that seemingly are setting the stage for Bible Prophecy to be fulfilled. Jimmy and Ken will discuss President Obama's trip to Saudi Arabia, to mend their break in the good relations they have had in the past; Bahrain's Parliament declaring a state of war on Iran and Hizbullah; Syria vows to use the UN to help then take the Golan Heights from Israel; IS is forced out of major Libyan city; and Iran has been parading parts of the Russian S-300 promised to the Iranians.

Bible Minded Cities: What is the evangelism strategy for those who live in cold and dark places?

Under pressure from agenda-driven groups, what was once considered free speech is now considered a hate crime. In public schools, tax money is spent teaching our kids about various forms of sexuality. Is there a time to stand up and say “no”? The answer is “yes.”

Gary Frazier is a respected speaker and writer on the subject of Bible prophecy. He is the founder and president of Discovery Missions. He is the author of numerous books including one discussed on this Crosstalk called, 'Miracle of Israel: The Shocking, Untold Story of God's Love for His People'. This edition of Crosstalk looks at Israel's past and present while tomorrow's broadcast will look at their future. Concerning their past, Gary begins with the book of Genesis. After the first 11 chapters and about 2,000 years of history, he comes to the story of Abram (later called Abraham) where we see the history of the Jewish nation beginning. So how did the name Israel come about? To understand this you have to realize that in the Bible God delineates the ownership of the land. He does this through use of the term, 'covenant'. One is an unconditional, everlasting covenant (literally meaning 'forever' in Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic) mentioned in the 15th chapter of Genesis. Then there's the promise in Genesis 49:10. According to Gary this is saying that Israel was going to give birth. In other words, God would use the Jewish lineage of Isaac through King David to bring forth the Messiah. The story of Moses leading Israel through the wilderness...Joshua taking them through the promised this part of the miracle of Israel? Gary admits Israel was not completely obedient in following God and didn't drive out those enemies that God wanted removed. So to this day the Jewish people have never occupied all of the land that God promised to give them. So doesn't Israel's history of rebellion and their judgment do away with the miracle idea of Israel? Gary says this isn't so due to the unconditional nature of the covenant. He noted the second covenant in the Bible from Deuteronomy chapters 28 through 30. That's the Mosaic covenant. While the Genesis 15 covenant deals with the ownership of the land, the Mosaic covenant has to do with the use of the land. Many people get these things confused. So while it's true that the Jewish nation did rebel, were descended into captivity and lost the right to use the land, such rebellion and captivity never negates their right to own the land. That's why for 1,878 years you couldn't find Israel on a map anywhere in the world. From there Gary takes listeners through history to cover the following: --The miracle of Christ and how this was prophesied by Daniel... --Why the name of the land of Israel was changed in 135 AD... --The Balfour Declaration of 1917... --The false notion that Jesus is a Palestinian... --Why there was a holocaust if Israel is a miracle... ...and much more.

Allah is Satan and Jesus is God (Part Twelve)

Jews around the world are celebrating the Jewish Feast Days of Passover, speaking of the first of the Spring Holidays . Jimmy DeYoung will have a conversation with Steve Herzig, the National Director of Friends of Israel, and they will discuss this, the first of the seven Jewish Feast Days, given by God to the Jewish people, Leviticus 23. Many people are using the Passover season to befriend the Jews and give out the message of salvation to the Jews and the Gentiles, everyone. Listen and learn.

Israel Wayne is the co-founder of Family Renewal Ministries. He is an author, columnist and conference speaker. He is the father of nine and is passionate about defending the Christian faith and developing a biblical worldview. Some of his books include, 'Homeschooling from a Biblical Worldview', 'Full-Time Parenting: A Guide to Family Based Discipleship', 'Questions God Asks', 'Questions Jesus Asks' and his latest book, ''Pitchin' a Fit': Overcoming Angry and Stressed-Out Parenting'. Jim opened the discussion by asking if there's a difference between stress in parenting and being stressed-out. Israel responded by indicating that there is a difference. Stress is external by the fact that there are pressures of life that come at us from all sides. These can be financial or health pressures and more. The problem comes when we begin to internalize those pressures and allow them to affect your attitude and behavior. Is stress wrong? Israel noted that it affects our relationships. In that sense it can be very harmful. It's a physiological thing that we experience that doesn't necessarily have a moral implication at the outset but we tend to act out based upon our emotions and feelings. So when we express that stress to others it can be very damaging. The problem isn't so much stress itself but how we deal with it. We're always going to have some kind of drama or crisis in our lives, especially if you interact with people. We all have in common the fact that everyone is a sinner and that means there will be times when people will bend us the wrong way. These things, as James noted, come along to test us; that it's the trying of our faith that produces patience and endurance. It's to make us mature so we don't want to run away from those things but rather learn how to handle them appropriately. Stress is often a trigger point for anger. When stress appears we realize the implications. The result is an adrenaline rush similar to when we might be on a walk and we see a Doberman coming at us dragging a six foot leash with no one hanging on to it. Israel believes we really don't have any control over those adrenaline rushes. It's our fight-or-flight mechanism that takes over. That can move us into the realm of emotion. We then start making decisions, making accusations and using words and actions in hurtful ways. So it's important for us to recognize these anger triggers when we feel ourselves escalating. That way we'll make right choices rather than harmful ones that we'll regret later. Anger is part of a spectrum and begins with annoyance and frustration and ends in wrath and rage. Even the milder forms of anger, if allowed to continue habitually as a lifestyle pattern, can create and produce harm in relationships over time. As the program moves along Jim and Israel discuss other aspects of the stress/anger relationship as it pertains to parenting. They look at the stress/fear connection, self control, where anger comes from, whether all anger is unbiblical or not, the importance of prayer and more.

Pradeep Tilak Interview (Part 2): Dr. Tilak discusses ministry, the different types of apologetics (classical, evidential and presuppositional). Pradeep serves as an Elder at Bethlehem Bible Church.

The government is encroaching on the Christian values our country once had, favoring various political agendas which run contrary to God’s Word. When the red, white, and blue no longer meshes with the cross of Christ, what should believers do?

Islam is continuing to advance, not just through Europe but through the U.S. as well. 48 hours ago, the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations held their 2nd annual Muslim advocacy day in Washington, D.C. Part of their goal was to meet with legislators and express their interests which includes the passing of a resolution that would condemn so-called Islamophobia. This and related issues were addressed by Shahram Hadian. Shahram was born in Iran into a Muslim family. His father was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army, his mother an elementary school teacher. His parents had a sense of urgency to leave Iran in 1978 and moved to the United States. While in the states, Shahram committed his life to Jesus Christ. This brought immediate disapproval from his family and his culture. Shahram, now a former Muslim, has begun the TIL Project. The Truth in Love Project exposes the true goal of Islam and the threat of Shariah in America. He also exposes the lie of Chrislam, the false claim that Christianity and Islam have a common god and a common word. He ran for office of Governor in Washington State in 2012. He has served as a police officer and a pastor. According to Shahram, the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations is yet another front group for the Muslim Brotherhood. In fact, the USCMO is the Muslims Brotherhood's political wing. This proves what some have been saying; that Islam is not just a religious system, it's also a political ideology that is meant to establish its law (Shariah). The USCMO promotes what they call a '...legislative agenda in support of equality and social justice.' Shahram noted that there can't be equality between the tenets of the U.S. Constitution and those of Islam/Shariah. Islamic law violates all five sections of the First Amendment. There is no freedom of religion, speech, grievances, freedom of the press or the freedom to assemble in Islam. None of those apply within Islam once it obtains the upper hand. Just on the issue of free speech alone we can see the paradigm shift that's taking place as Islam seeks to gain the upper hand. President Obama said back in February that his administration wants to go after anti-Muslim rhetoric. After the attacks in San Bernardino, California, Loretta Lynch, the head of the Justice Department, made a similar plea. What's come out of this is that now the USCMO agenda includes a resolution to condemn violence, bigotry and hateful rhetoric toward Muslims in the United States. This has resulted in House Resolution 569 which was introduced on December 17th, 2015. It denounces what it calls, 'hate speech' and calls for the House to reaffirm the right of Muslims to practice their freedom of faith. Anti-defamation laws have been passed in Europe to protect Muslims but What people need to understand is that in America, any kind of rhetoric is protected speech under the First Amendment. This is an example showing how Islam is attempting to force compliance upon dissenters just like the LGBT community is doing with their agenda. So if Islam establishes its agenda by criminalizing rhetoric, at that point free speech disappears. Christians will not only be sued and fined on a civil level but charged criminally as well. This means that under this resolution, this Crosstalk broadcast would be deemed a criminal act in spite of the fact that it would be delivering factual information about Islam. There's much more to be learned from Jim and Shahram when you review this important Crosstalk broadcast.

The Jewish Passover begins at sundown April 22nd and ends on April 30th. So what is the Passover? What is its significance? Joining Jim to answer these questions was Chris Katulka. Chris is the host of the radio program, 'The Friends of Israel Today'. He also serves as a speaker, writer and blogger for The Friends of Israel and writes for 'Israel My Glory' magazine. He also leads annual tours to Israel. The program began by discussing anti-semitism. For decades it seemed to be isolated to the Middle East. It spread to Europe and has become such a force that Jews are fleeing France in droves for Israel. London is no longer a safe place for Jews and Chris also reported that we are now seeing a rise in anti-semitism in American universities. This phenomenon has even penetrated the Christian community. Chris noted that the Presbyterian Church USA is very pro-active in pushing a Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement within their denomination and this is showing up in Methodist circles as well. The ironic part of the BDS movement is that some Palestinians are asking that people don't boycott Israeli companies. Why? It's because those companies are where some Palestinians generate their income. So if you boycott an Israeli company that's located in the West Bank or in Judea/Samaria, you're not helping the Palestinians, you're actually hurting some of them. Why is the Passover coming 4 full weeks after the time we celebrated Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday? According to Chris, Jewish holidays follow the Hebrew Calendar which is a lunar calendar so it differs from our Gregorian calendar. It's a Jewish leap year so instead of adding an additional day to the end of February, the Jews add a whole month to the year. Chris believes the significance of the Passover is similar to what we hold dear as Christians. It's one evening that carries over into a period of 7 days of unleavened bread. The bread is unleavened because leaven carried the connotation of sin with it. In the end, Passover is a celebratory reminder that God set the Jewish people free from the bondage of Egypt. As this Crosstalk moved along it explained the connection we have to Passover as Christians, witnessing to Jewish friends, the purpose of the red heifer and more.
