LISTEN Why cant 80 million Christians change this culture when just 12 Apostles changed the world for Christ? How can God mature baby Christians? How can we transform our culture unless Christ first transforms us? Frances Frangipane, author of The Days of His Presence- Experiencing the fullness of Christ as we enter the fullness of time, says, Its only when we are pleasing to God that He gives us His transforming power. As evil gets worse God is raising up a people who passionately love Jesus and receive the fire of His Glory. How can Christ be your Lord unless you give Him control of your life?
LISTEN The Christmas Spirit goes far beyond gifts, friends, family and music. Renowned author, Max Lucado, author of 3:16-The Numbers of Hope, says people never tire of hearing about God’s love for them. Jesus went from holding the stars in His hands to clutching Mary’s little finger. Why did He come to earth? He stopped the storm at sea but allowed soldiers to nail Him to the cross. Bruce Marchiano, the gifted actor who played the part of Jesus in the Gospel According to Matthew, gives an inspirational description of Jesus you will never forget. Jesus’ love is profound, but have you fully experienced Christ’s love?
LISTEN What is God like? Hundreds of years before the birth of Christ, Isaiah prophesied about Christ, "Unto us a Son is given: and His Name shall be called Mighty God, the everlasting Father." Was Jesus really God? Was He the Creator? He was. God came to the earth He created in the smallest form possible, as a single cell. Film maker Bruce Marchiano, who acted the parts of Jesus in more films than any other, is the author of Jesus Yesterday, Today and Forever. What was Jesus like as a child? What was it like for Mary, expecting Jesus to rule the world, to see Him crucified? Why did Jesus have so much supernatural joy?
LISTEN The idea that ancient men were primitive brutes, cave men, is a myth based on evolution that contradicts the Biblical account. Ancient people had extreme intelligence, plus lived hundreds of years, and thus invented amazing things. Don Landis, editor of The Genius of Ancient Man-Evolution’s Nightmare, gives examples such as the thousands of pyramids around the world that used massive 100-ton stones fitted together so precisely you couldn’t slide a credit card in the joints. In the religious tower of Babel, man rebelled against God and tried to be God. The religion of Babel is still here today.
LISTEN As students get a socialist education they become socialists. But socialism only brings poverty. Cuban refugee turned successful business owner, Aurelio Barreto, founder of C28 Christian Stores and author of Not of This World, tells how socialism stole his family’s wealth in Cuba. Although he started with nothing in L.A., he became a multimillionaire through his Christian stores. But many malls would not let a Christian store in because it was too "controversial." Over 16,000 people have received Christ through his stores. Aurelio says, "If I lost everything but still had Christ, I would have it all."
