There is an escalating trend of darkness and division in our nation. Do you know that the only hope we have is for the people of God to press in to the Lord in fervent prayer? Only a move of God in a mighty, spiritual awakening and a pouring out of the Holy Spirit can turn us from the inevitable course of natural reasoning and violence. It is time to pray that we would be delivered from the spirit of the age. God is placing a call on your life in this incredible time!
Deliver me, O Lord, from evil men;
Preserve me from violent men,
Who plan evil things in their hearts;
They continually gather together for war.
They sharpen their tongues like a serpent;
The poison of asps is under their lips. Selah
Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked;
Preserve me from violent men,
Who have purposed to make my steps stumble.
The proud have hidden a snare for me, and cords;
They have spread a net by the wayside;
They have set traps for me. Selah
I said to the Lord: “You are my God;
Hear the voice of my supplications, O Lord.
O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation,
You have covered my head in the day of battle.
Do not grant, O Lord, the desires of the wicked;
Do not further his wicked scheme,
Lest they be exalted. Selah
“As for the head of those who surround me,
Let the evil of their lips cover them;
Let burning coals fall upon them;
Let them be cast into the fire,
Into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
Let not a slanderer be established in the earth;
Let evil hunt the violent man to overthrow him.”
I know that the Lord will maintain
The cause of the afflicted,
And justice for the poor.
Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name;
The upright shall dwell in Your presence.
Lord deliver us from religion and the traditions of man that we would be free to pursue fully a relationship with you directly. Give us the grace to be led by your Holy Spirit into all truth, righteousness, and judgment. Transform our lives through a faith that honors you by pouring itself out for others. Father, we bless you and praise you for your mercy, love, and tenderness. Show your power in this generation, and put us at liberty to stand for you in the midst of a darkened society. Jesus, in your name open our eyes to the eternal things that really matters in this moment.

Following up on our series of technological discussions, tonight we will zoom all the way out to talk about what the digital age is potentially revealing about the structure of the universe. We have discussed digital physics in previous conversations, but now is an excellent time to revisit these ideas. Once we get this backdrop in place we will then come back in for a closer look at blockchain technologies and the cryptocurrency space.
Join us for another engaging and informative conversation tonight at 8:00pm!

Students of the Bible have for many years understood the significance of symbology, typology, and iconography in the interpretation and expositing of the prophetic Scriptures. But, can it be that one of the clearest, most visible examples of iconography has been completely misunderstood.
How does the Triumphal Arch of Titus serve as both the original prophetic fulfillment of what Deuteronomy 28 stated concerning Israel and as the model for nearly every subsequent triumphal arch built across nearly every continent? And most importantly what does this mean for Israel and the born again, blood bought, son or daughter of Yeshua Ha Mashiach, commonly referred to as the Church?
This is my conversation with researcher and author Chad Schafer, discussing his book, “The World in the Bondage of Egypt: Under the Triumphal Arch of Titus,” in this episode of SER.

In what can be described as another wildly misguided missive poorly aimed and good only for virtue signaling to a cadre of reality-oblivious followers, William Dwight McKissic, an African-American Texas pastor, drafted a resolution that was considered at the annual Southern Baptist Convention meeting in Phoenix this week. What was misguided about his resolution? Simply this – McKissic sees in the so-called Alt Right, a source of unparalleled evil and hatred such that any rational individual would condemn it.
The Christian Post writer Michael Gryboski states in his write-up about the Resolution that, “The Alt Right is a political movement generally associated with white nationalism and known for launching intense attacks on ideological enemies on social media.” Oh the evil of such individuals who would oppose other people’s viewpoints along ideological lines! Note to Gryboski – this IS political discourse in America today. Social Media IS a political battlefield occupied by people of all ideologies including black supremacists, Hispanic and Latino supremacists, and every other ethnicity who has a grievance to advance.
The New York Times, Washington Post, Huffington Post, Salon, and dozens of other media platforms have all crafted a very specific progressive-leftist ideology and routinely attack people of other viewpoints. Gryboski’s seemingly innocuous statement is in fact a clear example of the fallacy of prima facie – assuming something to be true when even a cursory investigation proves that it is not. His attempt to smear the Alt Right by connecting it with white supremacists is an old ploy often used by individuals with an agenda to minimize and marginalize when public discourse cannot persuade.

For years, critics of premillennialism have argued that John Nelson Darby was the source of the doctrine of the rapture and the theological system of thought known as dispensationalism. The evidence says something entirely different though. Darby was in fact following a long line of British clergy who anticipated the restoration of Jews to a national homeland and the imminent return of Jesus Christ.
Stay tuned for my conversation with Dr. William Watson about his book, “Dispensationalism Before Darby,” in this episode of SER.

Now is the time to press in to the Lord and to rely on Him for protection. Without the covering of God and the blood of Jesus Christ we are vulnerable to the innumerable storms, trials, and temptations that we are currently facing in this generation. God is looking for people who will dwell in the secret place of prayer, receive the covering of the Lord, and proclaim with boldness the truth of the gospel. Whether we acknowledge it or not, we are in a spiritual war. Not only that: we are behind enemy lines.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”
