Today's guest is Elijah Abraham of Living Oasis Ministries. We discuss the president's visit to the Middle East and what's on the table as he meets with Israeli leaders as well and Palestinian Authority leaders. Will America still defend Israel if they are attacked? What about moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem? Does the Trump administration still oppose a two-state solution?

Where Christians and the American church are concerned, too many churches and leaders have backed away from preaching the hard truths of Scripture while many of us struggle with conforming to this world. Since the average believer has not been well equipped to do ministry and accurately handle God's Word, what are some of the steps we can take to be more disciplined in prayer and Bible study so we can be effective and fruitful witnesses for Jesus Christ?

National Security, Religious Freedom, and Biased Media

With terrorism on the rise, many Americans are naturally concerned with safety, wanting the federal government to inform us about hateful ideologies and protect us from terrorist organizations like ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood. But safety usually comes with a potentially severe price: Freedom. It is a difficult balance to maintain maximum safety without government intrusion into privacy, freedom of speech, or other liberties our Constitution guarantees us as citizens.

Also, there is a potentially dangerous trend within our National Security Agencies to become political as we are witnessing holdover members of the Obama Administration leaking damaging innuendo or facts about the Trump Administration to the press. Few would argue the media doesn't want to undermine the President's agenda and see him fail.

Ryan Mauro is a national security expert withe The Clarion Project and a Shillman Fellow. He joins us to discuss President Trump's trip to the Middle East this weekend, as well as the growth of terrorism and what can be legally done about it.

Next, David Fiorazo presents another Media Watch segment concerning what he calls hypocritical, irresponsible, malignant media bias, and we discuss the increasing discrimination against Christians and conservatives in America.

If you have ever been disappointed with God, His answer to your prayers or His timing, then welcome to the overcrowded club! Maybe we can all learn something from these experiences. Slow down and trust in Jesus; love God and love your neighbor, submit to God’s sovereignty. Obey His commandments and walk by faith (not by sight) a day at a time.

While we were still sinners, Christ redeemed us at just the right time, forgave our sins, and will return to deliver us eternally. He’s got us covered past, present, and future!

Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead, who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us, 2 Corinthians 1:10 (NKJV)

Though you may not hear this in the news, Christians continue to be the most persecuted group around the world according to recent studies. Nearly 600 million believers were prevented from practicing their faith openly in 2016. Many are imprisoned or killed for their profession of faith in Jesus Christ. Are you and I prepared for increased discrimination and persecution here?

Today we are joined by Pastor Tom Doyle, who has spent 15 years as a Christian Missionary, and is VP and Middle East Director for e3 Partners based in Dallas, Texas. Tom has authored four books including his latest, Standing in the Fire: Courageous Christians Living in Frightening Times. Tom joins us to discuss how the gospel is being spread in the most dangerous places in the world.

Does North Korea fit in Biblical Prophecy?

Understandably when most Christians consider biblical prophecy we look to Israel and the growing tension in the Middle East. And while many events in the Middle East seem to be lining up prophetically, are we over looking a tiny nation in Asia with nuclear weapons who is threatening to destroy America and plunge the world into global war? We're talking of course about North Korea. At least one pastor and student of biblical prophecy thinks it is a mistake to discount North Korea's influence on end times prophecy.

Pastor Carl Gallups, a best-selling author and radio show host joins us to take a world-wide view of biblical prophecy and the increasing tension in the world.

Discrimination… to Persecution… to Martyrdom

First, a reality check. As Christians living in America, with the exception of a little discrimination, we are quite comfortable and surely not undergoing persecution (at least as many in the world are experiencing). What we see is increasing ridicule and hostility toward the gospel and true believers. But this mockery and discrimination has an historic pattern of leading to persecution and even martyrdom. We saw it in the early formation of The Soviet Empire and Communist China, where hundreds of thousands of Christians were murdered in the name of Communism. Biblical Christianity stands in direct contradiction to socialism, (the modern definition of) liberalism, Communism and totalitarian rule.

William Murray of the Religious Freedom Coalition joins us today as we look at several news stories of persecution of Christians around the world. We also look at stories here in the U.S. where ridicule and growing discrimination of Christians might well be leading our beloved nation to one day join the list of nations where Christians risk their lives for proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ.
