Ever look at the events surrounding you and wonder. "What's happening?" Us too! Come join us as we explore what's happening here. A daily podcast event.


February 2023

To conclude our week of prophecy, today on Something’s Happening Here we are studying Revelation 13 – that strange and mysterious chapter that concludes with the number 666. But the mark of the beast isn’t our focus today: instead we want to better understand the lamb-like beast with the voice of a dragon.

USA in Bible Prophecy Study Guide

To best understand the prophetic dimension of yesterday’s topic, we really need to study out Revelation 13. But that’s tomorrow, because first we need to lay the foundation of Revelation 12. Today on Something’s Happening Here, we look at the one prophecy in Scripture that spans the entirety of human existence, in just 17 verses.

Blue Letter Bible

When another country in the world turns itself around by intentionally trying to be more like America, then scolds America for not being enough like America, we get the pleasure of analyzing it all in light of the Holy Scriptures. Today on Something’s Happening Here, we use the situation in El Salvador to set up a detailed study about Revelation chapters 12 and 13.

Daily Wire Article

Today we journey into the past, by way of the book of Revelation. We seek to learn from moments in history that bear similarities to our own, to gain a fuller picture about what we discussed yesterday in New York City. Will history repeat itself? And if it does, is that good or bad?

This week on Something’s Happening Here, our topic is prophecy. How does the past inform the present – and how does the present inform the future? Today, we begin in New York City and see what many people consider a positive move. But will it stay positive? And what could it mean about what’s still to come?

Every answer on this side of Heaven will ultimately fall short, so as believers look for real, lasting answers to the mental health crisis we’re in, we must look to the promised return of Jesus Christ, and the advent of His eternal Kingdom with it.

Every problem needs a solution, right? Today we review some proposed solutions to the mental health crisis given by the world and measure them against the Bible. Hopefully we can find lasting answers!

Poor Mental Health

As we often do on this program, today we are focusing on the kids. Every problem our society faces is magnified for the children. Today we see various ways that the kids have suffered these past few years, and what we can do about it as concerned parents and adults.

The Grammys have given rise to calls for censorship, legislation, and Christian nationalism. Many believers hope to see the end of such displays in the future – but what if it won’t end the way we all think it will? Today we let prophecy guide us forward.

Ted Cruz Outrage Smith's Grammy Performance

Hell is often described as Satan’s kingdom – including at the 2023 Grammys. But the Bible describes it as Satan’s prison and graveyard, and we delight in learning of his soon demise.

Will Hell Last Forever?

Will sinners burn forever?

Many people live in some level of fear regarding Satan, but the Bible reveals that he is the single most defeated foe in all of history. Today we deflate the devil’s ego a bit as we discuss his many defeats.

What's going to happen to Satan?

Who is Satan? His depictions are numerous: from Dante to South Park to Sam Smith, he seems to embody the darkest ideas of mankind. But what does the Bible teach about him?

Sam Smith's Unholy Grammy

At the 2023 Grammy awards, Satan took the stage and the world erupted. But what really happened on that Sunday night? The Bible might surprise us as we look for answers. All this week we are exposing the devil for who he is, what he plans, and the end results of his rampage.
