Guest: Todd Nettleton
Notes: The last line that Reverand Wurmbrand gives us in his book is “start by changing yourself“; You become more peaceful, you become more loving, and pretty soon, if all of us do that, we’ll start to have a world that is more peaceful and more loving; It’s a charge that you can’t walk away from and you can’t pass it off to somebody else… it’s on you to take the truth that you have and to start making it more a part of your life; You have to first believe that the Holy Spirit has the power in each of us to make this change one-on-one in people… it’s not necessarily a ballot box or any other power structures that are the key to win the battle, but it’s the Holy Spirit one-on-one in each one of us; You also have to acknowledge that these battles are spiritual battles, and not physical battles; When it says in the Bible that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers and rulers in these dark places… if we’re going to have a struggle or anything regarding hatred, it should be addressed to the principalities and powers of darkness who stand condemned, rather than the human pawns that are in this physical sphere that are just a mere shadow of the spiritual battle that is truly going on; We have access to the power to change ourselves… not literally us changing ourselves, but allowing God to change us; When you see a terrorist and you see that God loves them and that God can change them, that changes your whole mindset of how you’re going to address them and interact with them, not as somebody to fear and hate, but as somebody who Jesus died for that needs to hear the message of the gospel… that’s a completely different mindset; Christians should get together and pray for these people, that God would illuminate their minds to what they’re doing, to fill them with the love of Jesus Christ, and somehow make a way that they could know about Jesus

Guest: Todd Nettleton
Notes: Jesus fears and hates no one; According to Pastor Wurmbrand, the exortation “do not be afraid” is in the Bible 366 times; How should we feel about terrorists?… we should not be afraid, and we should not have hatred for them; We should see them through the eyes of Christ, and see them with His love, as somebody who has been led astray, but somebody with a soul that Jesus came and died for; Our media–even our Christian media–foster that fear and hate (or don’t fight against it); We have become the 30-second sound bite culture and you can’t have any nuance in a 30-second soundbite… so “Muslims are bad, and Christians are good”… that’s the soundbite–that’s the context of the reporting that we get; If you can get people scared about the menace, you will make them to do all sorts of things that they normally wouldn’t do; If you can convince them that if they don’t do this, they’re gonna lose family, friends, their way of life, etc., they will do stuff that is anathema to the gospel; American has just stayed in a perpetual state of emergency, and our Christian culture has stayed with that button… it has now switched gears over to Islam; It’s a lucrative position to take to keep the fans of of fear and hate; Americans will give a lot of money not to be fearful

Jesus: Friend To Terrorists – Part 2

Dr. Future & Tom Bionic
Guest: Todd Nettleton
Notes: Across the Middle East there are stories of dreams and visions of God appearing to people–of Christ coming to them personally; God is going where his people are refusing to go and is ministering to them directly; A person in Iran came forward with a hand-written book that turned out to be word-for-word the entire gospel of John, which had been dictated to them by a “man” in a white robe that came to them at night; There are many Muslims who are seeking and want to do what God wants them to do… praise the Lord that He is reaching them and calling many to go and share the message there; God loves every one of them, He does not fear them, He loves and cares about them, and He’s looking for children who will come where the fields are white unto harvest and will reflect Him; We need to tell them the good news… that their sins can be forgiven, that they can see God one day, that they can have God as their Father; A lot of the Christian leadership in America has been so consumed with fanning the flames of fear and hatred for these people, and glorifying perpetual military solutions, that we’re missing out on on being able to participate in many of those blessings; The middle road is love… we love you and don’t want to see you go to hell, so because of our love, that’s why we’ve come with the gospel; Whether the fruit is accepted or not, that’s God’s task, not ours; We can’t share the gospel with these people and hate them all at the same time

Guest: Todd Nettleton
Notes: Paul standing by at the stoning of Stephen… he thinks he’s serving God; He believes Stephen is challenging God and that he is getting the just punishment for his actions; Paul stands there thinking, “this is a godly thing to do”; Come forward 2,000 years and think about the Islamic terrorists who think “if I die in the cause of Allah, that’s the highest achievement I could have for my life”… they believe they are doing God’s will; It should hurt our hearts that Muslims who are devout in their faith are going to stand before God and He’s going to say “depart from me, I never knew you”; They really do believe they’re doing what they’re supposed to be doing… it’s going to be a terrible wake-up call on judgment day; For those of us who know the truth and have the gospel, we have to go and tell them… we have to go and share the truth with them; We’re too busy being afraid of them and hating them to go en mass and show that kind of regard; The story of Cornelius… he who seeks finds; We can only hope and pray that those who are the true seekers that want to seek God, that God will make provision in the same way He did with Cornelius
