It is exhausting to attempt to be holy in our own strength. We must give it up and simply be honest with God! He already knows the thoughts we deal with, the struggles we face, and live in high definition. We deal with thousands of thoughts each day, and we must follow the scriptures to take them captive. Right after being miraculously delivered from Saul, David had a thought of defeat catch in his mind. He then fled into the land of Goliath, and worse yet he brought hundreds of people along with him. When we obey our thoughts instead of God we can be moved in the wrong direction and even take others with us. However, when the power of the Holy Spirit gives us the boldness to be honest we see freedom. In Ephesus the new Christians openly confessed their sins and cast into the fire their occult books and pagan connections. We will continue to fight these mind battles as long as we are in the flesh, but we must fight in the power of God and be honest and open one with another in maturity and faith.
And many who had believed came confessing and telling their deeds. Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted up the value of them, and it totaled fifty thousand pieces of silver. So the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed.
Welcome back On the Objective as your host Steven Menking sits down again with Ray Gano to discuss Last Days Warrior Summit, Ray’s new initiative to bring digital only conferences to the body of Christ on a variety of topics outside of the bounds of censorship that have been constructed by the major technology platforms. The truth is still available, and efforts to silence it will only cause it to grow if we remain steadfast and undeterred. God deserves a harvest in this generation. Thanks again for joining us On the Objective!

On the Objective
Welcome back On the Objective as your host Steven Menking sits down with Chad Estes of the Salt and Light Brigade to discuss the regular fellowship meetings that he is hosting at his home in Texas and the need for Christians to be bold and vocal in this moment. There are many critical dynamics that require our attention, and we must be diligent in this hour. Iron sharpening iron is one of the critical ways that we can accomplish the work that God has called us into for His kingdom. Thanks again for joining us On the Objective!

Malachi writes that in the last days the hearts of the children will turn to the fathers and the hearts of the fathers will turn to the children. Acts 15 records how Paul viewed Mark as unfit for service. Paul’s zeal led him to break with his friends, and he wasn’t able to extend grace to Mark. Over the course of his walk, Paul encountered Timothy, his spiritual son, and the Lord continued to transform Paul’s heart. Finally, toward the end of his life, Paul calls upon Mark to be brought again as valuable for ministry. The tenderness of God and the mercy of Christ had taken hold of his heart. When Jesus wants to move in our lives, He will continue to present opportunities even when we fail. We must press in to the Lord now and ask for our hearts to be turned to those around us. If you have ever written someone off or been written off by someone, then today is the day of reconciliation!
“For behold, the day is coming,
Burning like an oven,
And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble.
And the day which is coming shall burn them up,”
Says the Lord of hosts,
“That will leave them neither root nor branch.
But to you who fear My name
The Sun of Righteousness shall arise
With healing in His wings;
And you shall go out
And grow fat like stall-fed calves.
You shall trample the wicked,
For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet
On the day that I do this,”
Says the Lord of hosts.
“Remember the Law of Moses, My servant,
Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel,
With the statutes and judgments.
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet
Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
And he will turn
The hearts of the fathers to the children,
And the hearts of the children to their fathers,
Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.”
Join your host Steven Menking as he welcomes back Pastor David Lankford of The Voice of Evangelism for another powerful appearance On the Objective! The conversation focused on Psalm 94 and the dynamic cry of the psalmist concerning the apparent triumph of the wicked. What is required for our bonds to be broken? What responsibility do we have in this generation? How can we press in to God to pursue his Kingdom fervently? We hope that you are encouraged and edified by this conversation at this pivotal time. Thanks for joining us On the Objective!

Tonight’s show features Mark Goodwin, a prolific author, who is writing a 3-book series. This show will be a discussion of evil in the culture and the apostate church falling fast.
Have you heard of the super hero, Sun Man? (Is this just a re-run of Nimrod/Baal from the Bible?) Have you heard that Jesus is a transsexual? One worship leader in a PCA church is promoting such an idea.
St. Paul warned the early Church that wolves would come “from yourselves.” Watch out!

Join us for another Biblical discussion of important spiritual principles! In this message we look at the Parable of the Sower and examine our own hearts to see which type of ground the Word of God finds when it is sown in our lives. All too often we see examples of powerless religion in the American church that leads us to the conclusion that the ground is not fertile for a variety of reasons. However, in addition to repenting corporately for the frivolous way that we have handled the Word of God, we must examine ourselves and ask the Lord to help us to be fruitful. We can’t do it by ourselves, so we must have the faith necessary to press in to Jesus knowing that He can and will transform our hearts and lives. The scriptures from this message are found in Matthew 13 and Psalm 1.
