SEASON 1 PODCASTS
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.
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.
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.
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 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!
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.
Today we look at more evidence of the problem we’re facing, and we realize that some are looking for answers in the same places that caused the problems in the first place! Is there a better way?
Everyone seems to believe that the United States (and maybe the whole world) is suffering a mental health crisis – but how bad is it really? We begin our week’s discussion about mental health by looking at some alarming statistics about life in the 2020s.
We believe the breakdown of the family is at the heart of the confusion that is plaguing our young people today.
This week we look at the family unit as described in the Bible, and the ways that its deviation have caused chaos in our world today. Today we begin with a look at current marriage statistics in the United States, and we see a sorry state of affairs.
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.
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.
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.
Medical science has come around to realizing that we are not just victims of our genetic codes. How does the field of epigenetics present opportunities for both health and spiritual growth?
To conclude our study on the “mark of the beast,” today we go straight to the source – Jesus Christ – and put all our trust and faith in Him to lead us away from that mark and into eternal life
Can we learn about the “mark of the beast” by studying the “mark of Cain” in Genesis chapter 4? Today we examine these two marks next to each other to learn how to avoid being on the wrong side of God!
What does the Sabbath have to do with the “mark of the beast?” Historically, governments have sought to control their people most frequently and effectively through control of their religious worship. Even in the United States, laws controlling behavior on Sunday have existed since the 1600s.
Today we see, from the pages of Scripture, why A.I. can only be an “imitation of life” at its best. Humanity is made in God’s own image, in a way that A.I. can never replicate.
“State of the living”
Today we bring our attention to the Scriptures, to measure the Bible’s description of human life against that held in the A.I. worldview.
In the aftermath of Damar Hamlin’s recent cardiac arrest during an NFL game, we saw an outpouring of spontaneous prayer from even unlikely sources, indicating that Americans are more spiritually-minded than the popular culture would suggest. God’s people are crying out for The Good Book in an increasingly post-Christian world.
Today we conclude the study of Daniel chapter 7 which we began yesterday.
Our children are under a6ack. What could be the devil’s purpose in denying children education?
