In this episode we discussed the recent shooting at Covenant School in Nashville, Tenessee and how this may be a smaller picture of growing Christian persecution in the US. We then referenced an article from Harbingers Daily about how bible prophecy is oftentimes sensationalized. The ever-increasing move towards a CBDC was also discussed along with Panera’s implementation of Amazon’s Amazon One Hand Scanners. We then ended off with an article that called the Premillennial view an extremist Christian belief. For a downloadable version of the show notes, click download below.

The Gospel Presentation

Revelation 19:10 tells us that the essence of bible prophecy is Jesus Christ. These things were revealed to us so that we ultimately believe in Christ (John 13:19). We’ve all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Psalm 51:5, Romans 3:23). Because God is Holy he must judge sin. The penalty of this sin is death and ultimately the Lake of fire (Romans 6:23, Revelation 20:11-15). There’s nothing we can do to save ourselves (Isaiah 64:6).

But God, in his love has provided a way to escape his wrath through Christ (John 3:16-18, John 14:6). Jesus paid for our sin penalty by taking God’s wrath in our stead on the cross (Romans 5:8). He died for our sins, was buried, and rose again 3 days later (1 Corinthians 15:1-5).

You can accept this free gift of salvation by believing in Christ (Acts 16:30-31, Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9). Make sure you’ve made the right decision about Jesus today (2 Corinthians 6:2)! It will be the most important decision of your life, for eternal life.
