The World Vs. Israel

On Dec. 23rd, the UN voted on a resolution to condemn Israel for it’s settlement activities in the West Bank.  This resolution is part of an ongoing effort to establish Palestinian statehood.  As Israel once again finds itself in the “crosshairs” of the world, is there a prophetical component to the events shaking up the Middle East? Dr. Jimmy DeYoung, host of Prophecy Today, joins the program as guest.

What’s the significance of the “Oath of Office” that President-Elect Donald Trump will take on Inauguration Day? Also, has the Johnson Amendment really been the silencer of America’s pulpits-or has it been something else? Host: Dave Kistler

What Can Pastors and Churches Expect Post-Inauguration?

Evangelical leaders, pastors and churches were a huge factor in the election of President-elect Donald Trump in November. Now, just days from his inauguration, this same group is wondering what to expect under a Trump-Pence administration.

For one, says the American Pastors Network, Trump stated on the campaign trail, namely at this summer’s Republican National Convention, that he would “work hard” to repeal the Johnson Amendment.

“An amendment,” Trump had said, according to MSNBC, “pushed by Lyndon Johnson, many years ago, threatens religious institutions with a loss of their tax-exempt status if they openly advocate their political views. I am going to work very hard to repeal that language and protect free speech for all Americans.”

Many important issues for Christians—including religious freedom, abortion, and marriage—have been making major headlines since the election, and will continue to do so after Trump is sworn into office on Friday.

Sam Rohrer, president of the American Pastors Network, says that with the election of Trump, pastors and churches now have a responsibility as well.

“God answered the pleas and the prayers of His people and provided a reprieve,” Rohrer said. “His continued blessing will be linked directly to our level of obedience. Yes, He has given us a stay, but the length of that stay is dependent on whether God’s people will be obedient or will go back to sleep. We will very easily return to the same comfortable, status quo ways if we fail to lead appropriately. This is about much more than winning an election; it’s a complete lifestyle shift and a change in the hearts of God’s people. And it starts at the pulpits of America’s churches.”

Stand in the Gap Today

Today’s program will take a look at the Inauguration on January 20th. It seems entertainers are taking sides while the outgoing CIA Director continues to criticize and warn Trump about relations with Russia. What does this mean and why all the angst? Host: Dave Kistler

Blessing Israel

The Bible makes it clear that God’s blessing rests on those who love and support the nation of Israel-His chosen people.  Yet, the outgoing administration is continuing attempts to join with the UN in castigating Israel and pushing a “two-state solution”. This Stand in the Gap Weekend program will explore the 1948 and 1967 events surrounding Israel’s fight for nationhood and the surprising facts behind the Arab/Israeli conflict.
