Bitter Sweet Symphony

Season 6, Ep. 114

Richard Ashcroft, song writer and lead singer for the British rock band "The Verve" penned one of the most memorable songs in rock history. He fought for the rights to it for twenty-two years and finally won. He said in a way "it felt life-affirming." The lyrics to his song were sadly mimicked in the two decade long battle for his song. He hauntingly asks in the chorus, "have you ever been down?" This podcast fits under the heading "Other Things." My hope is that it inspires you to keep on pursuing your dreams and your artistic creativity! God will push through the things he wants to flourish in spite of the garbage the world throws at you!

Don't Fear Bad News!

Season 7, Ep. 140
It seems as if each day brings increasing bad news, both in the United States and across the globe. The person who follows God's lead will not fear bad news but instead face the challenge from a confident heart that trusts in the Lord. As we rely on the Lord and turn to Him in faith, we have the courage for duty and sustaining strength under adversity. Psalm 112 gives an overview of the traits of the Righteous; verse 7 brings us our empowering encouragement now..."He will not fear bad news; his heart is confident, trusting in theLord."Cut & Paste Personal Invitation to invite your friends to check out “gwot.rocks” podcast:I invite you to check out the podcast, “gwot.rocks: God, the World, and Other Things!” It is available on podcast players everywhere!

The False Prophet-Evil Exalted/Insight into Ultimate Idolatry

Season 7, Ep. 139
The second beast comes up out of the earth and is also called the false prophet. In Revelation 13:11-14 we have his brief dossier. The false prophet will be the ultimate imitator, instigator, and idolater. With his arrival, the unholy demonic trinity (Satan, the Anti-Christ, the false prophet) will establish the ultimate demonic religious state.Revelation 13:11-14Our present condition of separation of church and state in America is not a constitutional mandate but a secular, godless attitude that dominates our fallen society and governments structure. In the end, Satan is going to demand total adherence to obeisance and bowing to him in worship. The very religious condition that present man supposes to abhor!Cut & Paste Personal Invitation to invite your friends to check out “gwot.rocks” podcast:I invite you to check out the podcast, “gwot.rocks: God, the World, and Other Things!” It is available on podcast players everywhere!
