Eastern Syria is right where the Bible says Iran’s influence will stop and another foreign power’s will begin. On today’s program, Middle East correspondent Brent Nagtegaal explores Iran’s two-month-long campaign to dominate this territory and how the United States’ surprising response may lead to a fulfillment of a biblical prophecy.
Marxist agitators tried to stir up a “day of rage” in London yesterday. “We’ve felt our power. We’ve tasted victory. Now we must escalate our actions to take down this rotten government, which has lost all authority to govern,” wrote the Movement for Justice by Any Means Necessary, one of the main agitators. On today’s show, Trumpet contributing editor Richard Palmer examines the far-left leaders who seek to use any tragedy as an excuse to stir up anger, hatred and even violence against the British government.
Also on today’s show, Germany could soon be faced with a momentous decision. For the last few years, it has tried to take a middle-ground position between the United States and Russia. It has backed U.S.-led sanctions, while at the same time supporting a major growth of Russian power through the expansion of its gas pipeline network. The Nord Stream 2 pipeline—dubbed the “Molotov-Ribbentrop 2 Pipeline” by the Poles—will allow Russia to use its energy reserves as a precision weapon, cutting off individual nations from vital resources. Now America is poised to slap sanctions on German companies involved in Nord Stream 2. It could soon be decision time for Germany: Will it finally sever ties with Russia or join its eastern neighbor to overthrow the American-led world order?
The Bible describes Jesus Christ very differently than he is depicted in modern art and ancient frescoes. As a human being, Jesus was a Jew (Hebrews 7:14). He looked like a normal Jewish man of His time (Isaiah 53:2; Matthew 26:48-50). He was also a carpenter (Mark 6:3). This means He would have worked outdoors in all kinds of weather. He would have been tanned in the summer and wind-burnt in the winter. He would have had a healthy, weathered look about Him. Since carpenters at the time of Christ were also familiar with stone masonry, Christ would have been muscular enough to carry and place large stones in homes and buildings. He was not weak or sickly looking.
God the Father has not inspired any pictures, paintings or films visually portraying Himself or Jesus Christ. This is because He wants us to worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). Yet God inspired a written description of what Christ looked like as a human, so we would have a perfect example of a masculine leader. Together with steel-like traits of vibrant health, intelligence, decisive leadership, righteous indignation and powerful persuasiveness, Jesus also exhibited many velvet qualities. Above all, He was humble. Pharisees criticized Him for spending time with sinners, but He knew that the sick are the ones who need the physician (Luke 5:31-32). The Lord and Master of the disciples instituted an ordinance of humility at His final Passover, and He washed their feet (John 13:13-14).
All the paintings, statues and movies utterly fail to depict the appearance and character of Jesus Christ. For a more complete description of how Christ exemplified true masculinity, download our free e-book Biblical Manhood.
“If the United States gets divided too much between the idea of freedom and the idea of communism, this country could not stand,” Herbert W. Armstrong said on one of his World Tomorrow broadcasts. Today, communism has been fully integrated into America’s left wing, and the impact this is having on America is clear: Violence and division are on the increase. Where is this leading, and what is really at the core of the radical-left movement? Find out on today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show.
Tim Farron resigned yesterday as leader of the Liberal Democrats, saying that it was “impossible” for him to lead the party while “living as a faithful Christian.” Farron voted in favor of homosexual “marriage” and was generally very private about his religion. Yet even then, his religious beliefs were deemed too extreme for British politics. Meanwhile, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has met frequently with terrorists, pushed a radical Marxist agenda, and accepted cash from Britain’s enemies. Before last week’s election, Corbyn was a pariah in his own party; now he is being embraced by left-wing politicians. Trumpet contributing editor Richard Palmer examines a Britain that considers a private Christian too extreme for the nation and welcomes a terrorist-sympathizing Communist. On today’s show, we also look at the tragic shooting in America and what it says about the divided state of the nation, as well as a possible banking crisis occurring in Spain.
In nearly every way, in every sector, America is facing a cultural collapse of historic proportions! Gallup released its annual Values and Beliefs poll last month. More than one third of Americans believe pornography is not only normal—but moral. None of the hot-button cultural issues measured have moved in a more traditionally conservative direction. Family unity causes national stability. Attacks on the traditional family mean attacking biblical morality. This is not the sign of a happy, healthy, stable society. It is, however, a sure sign that we are living in the very last days. Listen to today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show to understand why you should be very concerned about the breakdown of the family relationship.
The Apostle John discusses two end-time messages in the biblical book of Revelation. The first is the most important book since the Bible. The second describes how God’s own people rebelled against the message of the first book.
