131: Our Christian Family in North Korea: Here’s What We Can Do — Arielle Del Turco

June 3, 2020

What’s “top of heart” with King Jesus? Justice, the poor, prisoners for His name. “Remember the prisoners AS IF chained with them — those who are mistreated — since you yourselves are in the body also” (Hebrews 13:3). Will we identify “AS IF” with our Christian Family in North Korea? This is a core component of Christ-following. Includes audio excerpt from escapee. Arielle Del Turco is Assistant Director of the Center for Religious Liberty at Family Research Council in Washington, D.C.

127: Before You Quit: Your Story of Blood, Sweat, and Coffee Stains, Part 2 — Doug Gehman

May 6, 2020

The Christ-follower's Advantage is that we can access a Meta-Reality, a Transcendent Reality -- the Kingdom of God. We can lean into this way of living every day. Every week. And it gives us more than enough endurance on the natural plane. Don't quit and miss your next level. You'll profit from the second part of my conversation with Doug Gehman, President and Executive Director of Globe International, a missions-sending agency. (See episode 126 also.)

April 29, 2020

And he's motivated to make us more like him in Christ -- aspiring to greatness for the Greater Story. Doug Gehman is the President and Executive Director of Globe International, a missions-sending agency. He says God uses difficulty to reveal to us who we are, what we believe ... and to surface what we deep-down desire.

Michael Hoff is saying that eternal life begins right now, right here in Christ. We can be renewed in the middle of stress and overcome the moment with a Kingdom Point of View. Jesus said, "In the world, you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.] (John 16:33 AMP)

123: He Experienced a Prophetic Dream: Could May 1, 2020, Be a Pivotal Moment for the Coronavirus (And the American Economy)? — Matt Peterson

April 8, 2020

On March 16, 2020, Matt Peterson experienced a prophetic dream — he encountered fearsome Chinese Foo Dogs (Chinese Guardian Lions) and bled profusely from his right wrist.

A former telecommunications officer with the federal government and now a pastor in North Carolina, Matt Peterson has sought the Lord for interpretation and insight. He’s advising May 1 could be a pivotal inflection point for the global pandemic (and the American economy) … if we contend in prayer and process with God.

A personal note — Brian Del Turco here. I’d like to share a note, and I know that Matt Peterson would agree. Even more important than dates and the understandable concern to see this struggle end, a more significant focus is, “Lord, what are you asking of me during this time. In what ways can I change?”

And another question: “Lord, in what ways are you asking your Church to change?” Our leading focus should be on transformation … personally and together with other Christ-Followers. The Society of Jesus can then please the Lord and more powerfully influence the Society-at-Large.

122: All Killer, No Filler: Saints in Beast Mode (Psalm 149)

122: All Killer, No Filler: Saints in Beast Mode (Psalm 149)

April 7, 2020

The Prayer Architecture in Psalm 149 is not suitable for Sunday School. It's for men and women, developing and seasoned ... fully conscious "Kingdom Agents." Not the semi-conscious. And it's sure not for unconscious church attenders. It's this kind of Prayer Voltage -- led and energized by the Holy Spirit -- which will meet the moment we face.
