Allah is Satan and Jesus is God (Part Sixteen)

Today on PTIB Jimmy DeYoung will talk with Ken Timmerman, in Washington, not in the "catbird seat" but instead at the National Press Club in the Nation's Capital. Ken, when I contacted him was at the briefing being held by the Syrian Kurdish soldiers, giving details of their on-going fight against the IS in Syria and Iraq. Jimmy and Ken will discuss how it is a "catastrophic situation in Aleppo, in northern Syria; Turkey's fake war with the Jihadist; the Turkish Speaker of Turkey's Parliament, wanting a new Islamic Constitution; and Saudi Arabia wanting to be a major arms dealer in the Middle East.

CHRISTIANITY & ISLAM Chris discusses the history of conflicts between Christianity and Islam, focusing on the Fall of Cyprus to the Turks in 1571. Also discussed is the conflict in Sudan, a country once governed by Christians who have now become the minority to the Muslims who immigrated into their country over a long period of time. The lessons of the past continue to be a warning to the Western world even today.

When it comes to the subject of immigration, how do we secure our borders and handle those who are in our nation illegally, especially those who are committing heinous crimes? Frustrating matters is news of a report that has emerged that indicates that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) continues to release deportable criminal aliens from its custody at an alarming rate Joining Jim to discuss this was Jessica Vaughan. Jessica serves as director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies. They are a Washington D.C. based research institute that examines the impact of immigration on American society and educates policymakers and opinion leaders on immigration issues. Prior to joining the center in 1992, Jessica was a foreign service officer with the State Department. According to Jessica, a criminal alien is a non-citizen who has been convicted of a crime in the U.S. It can be someone here illegally, someone here on a temporary visa or it could even be someone with a 'green card'. These individuals are potentially deportable. She believes this is why it's important to discuss not only illegal immigrants who come to the U.S. and commit crimes but anyone who is not a citizen. The numbers aren't good and shows this issue to be chronic problem under the Obama administration, especially in the past few years. In 2015, ICE freed almost 20,000 criminal aliens that had been started on the deportation process instead of holding them in custody. The numbers were slightly lower in 2015 but in 2013 it was 36,000 and in 2014 it was about 30,000. Jessica notes that even 20,000 is nothing to celebrate. New policies were put into place that don't allow ICE officers to arrest as many people and that's the reason for the lower number. In addition, these individuals are usually released without supervision and sent back to U.S. communities. Also, a large number of these individuals go on to commit additional crimes and therefore are a threat to public safety. Of the approximately 20,000 criminal aliens that were released, they were responsible for 64,000 convictions. Jessica feels that while this doesn't make sense, she believes the Obama administration doesn't think immigration enforcement is an important part of the law and that they place a higher importance on keeping illegal immigrant families together. The problem is, that kind of policy stance can and has permanently separated American families who have been the victims of criminal alien crimes. Adding frustration to the situation is the fact that some nations refuse to take back such individuals. The law requires the federal government to stop issuing visas in those nations. However, that law is not being applied as it might upset relations with those nations or we don't have good relations with them in the first place. In spite of that Jessica noted that we need to be a little more aggressive with these nations. Violators include: Cuba, Haiti, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Iran, Bangladesh, China, Cambodia and Vietnam. Doesn't Congress have some authority on this issue? What are the implications of the United States v. Texas case on this topic? Are unaccompanied minors still a problem and are they victims of human trafficking as the Obama administration would have us believe? Are immigration courts doing what they're supposed to? Is there firm evidence to believe that ISIS members are infiltrating Syrian refugee efforts? These questions are answered and callers bring their perspective as well on this vital edition of Crosstalk.

Kirby Myers Interview (Part 1) Pastor Mike interviews Kirby Myers. From his FCA page (https://my.fca.org/5068-myers-kirby.aspx):Romans 5:8Open in Logos Bible Software (if available) is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. I love in Scripture where we can find the Gospel in one single verse. The Gospel is a demonstration of the love of God. Though we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die the death that we deserved. Christ did not die for us when we had it all together. He died for us when we were helpless and hopeless sinners. This is good news. And this is the message that I will be taking to athletes and coaches and all whom they influence at the United States Naval Academy through the ministry of FCA. Thank you for your prayerful consideration in supporting my ministry in Annapolis, Maryland!

Allah is Satan and Jesus is God (Part Fifteen)

Today on PTIB Jimmy DeYoung has two of his Broadcast Partners that each have very special reports to share with us. Dr Rob Congdon has a EU Update that will give us important political information which will help us to see how prophecy, the prophetic scenario from the Bible, could be fulfilled very soon. But first, Jimmy will talk with Itamar Marcus, the team leader for Palestinian Media Watch, an organization that monitors the Palestinian media, so that we can really know what the Palestinian leaders are telling the Palestinian people. You will see that the Palestinian media is being used to incite the Palestinian people against the Israeli Jews.

WHOM SHALL WE FEAR? Chris discusses current world events in light of the promises of Scripture. While it is easy to become overwhelmed by fears and anxieties, we are continually reassured of God's deliverance.

Long before any of us were born, the life-giving God set His creation in motion. These decisions were grounded in his eternal decisions. Theologians call these decisions “decrees,” nonnegotiable orders God laid down—which govern creation, redemption, and history.

Paul Popov is the CEO of Door of Hope International. They are a voice and a helping hand to persecuted Christians worldwide. When he was five years old (in 1948), his father, Haralan Popov, a prominent Protestant minister, was brutally taken from his family by the KGB and arrested on false charges of being a 'spy for America'. Paul, with his family, were branded as 'enemies of the state'. As Paul begins his story, he noted how the communists were taking control of the most important positions in Bulgaria with the same thing happening to all of the Eastern Bloc states. Paul noted that the communists wanted to control not only civil society in general, but also the church. Protestant church leaders in particular were critical in terms of disseminating their communist ideology. Paul's father and uncle were offered certain privileges and the chance to work with the communists but they would have none of it. They refused to work out a church/state solution that would have them show loyalty to the Bulgarian Communist Party. They believed that they had a duty to fulfill in spreading the Word of God so they wanted to refrain from being involved in political activity. The result is that on July 24th, 1948 at 4am, the doorbell rang at the Popov residence. It was the secret police together with an officer from the regular militia. They ransacked the house, looking for incriminating evidence that could be used in a 'show trial' that they were preparing for. Haralan was accused of being a spy and told he was being taken for a short period of questioning that ended up lasting 15 years. Paul has had an opportunity to look through Bulgarian secret police files from the era and they indicate that it was predetermined where everyone would sit at the trial and what the sentences would be for the prisoners. During his captivity, Haralan suffered Stalin-style interrogation tactics. Prisoners had to stand up 24 hours per day while keeping their faces 8 inches from a bright white wall with eyes open. Closing of the eyes was not allowed. 3 guards took 8 hour shifts watching over the prisoners. They were given as little soup and bread as possible to maintain life. Upon collapsing, a doctor would be brought in to revive the prisoner. The idea was to break their will yet keep them looking good enough for the trial. Death was not allowed because this would make martyrs of the Protestant pastors. Eventually the collapsing became more frequent for Haralan. He was ordered to receive rest but the rest periods were short because during this time he was required to write his life story. The common phrase heard over and over from the communists was, 'Conform to us.' Paul indicated that they wanted prisoners to admit that they were spies for America and England. That way the foreign press would have no reason to believe that those on trial were being persecuted because they were Christians or because of the Bible. This Crosstalk has much more to present, and for an even more detailed account, you're encouraged to order a copy of 'Tortured for His Faith' via the information listed below.

Series: With the Master is Fullness of Joy Lesson: 03 Title: Paul’s Prayer for the Philippians— Four Amazingly Rich Prayer Requests! Passage: Philippians 1:9-11 Description: If I were to ask you if you desire a richer prayer life my guess is that you would answer with “YES”. “Prayer is something we are reluctant to start and yet delighted to end” as Elisabeth Elliot once said. Perhaps for some of us we don’t know what to pray about. In this lesson Paul will give four wonderful prayer requests that we all would do well to pray.

Misguided Moralism - part 2: This week we continue our discussion of moralism - the misguided effort to enact a national or personal morality apart from the Gospel. We will see how moralism acutely undermines the mission of the church. Also we will see that as bad as things may seem now, the society in which the Apostles wrote was far, far worse. We don't have it nearly as bad as what many of us imagine.
