I Hate Racism

Season 2, Ep. 28

Violence continues to rage in the streets of major cities across our country like Portland, Oregon, where the impotent elected leaders sit by by pleading for the violence to stop-sitting on their hands as mayhem ensues. Chicago - ten people shot dead over the weekend and 60 more wounded in shootings across the city. In New York City last month, 205 shootings - the most violent June for the city in 24 years. Obviously, the elected officials of our land have resorted to an insane approach to the violence by passive pleas that only embolden the racist, hateful, violent people. God has a better way - the way that works. This podcast defines what racism is and how, through the power of God, we can dismantle it!


"Speaking of Jesus: The Art of Not-Evangelism" by Carl Medearis, (David C. Cook Publisher) available on Amazon and other book retailers.


CORRECTION! I pointed to the book of Romans with regards to the full of armor of God. My brain skipped a track when I was recording! You can find the full armor of God described in Ephesians 6:10-18. My show reviewer (my wife!) was staying over helping with our new grand-baby #3 and I posted it without her review (shame on me!) but, hey, in my defense, Paul also gives a brief reference to it in the book of Romans as well: Romans 13:12 "The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light."

Real Super Heroes--The Two Witnesses

Season 6, Ep. 125
Hollywood produces all of the superhero movies and presents them as fantasy. Yet, there is coming a day, when two God powered people are going to proclaim the Gospel of God and the direct messaging of God to the entire world of people regarding their present condition and their future destination and the two witnesses will be impervious to any weapon or technology that would seek to kill them. No limited nuclear device, no space-based laser, no Abrams tank to blast or run them over, no submersion in water, or hypersonic jet to fly through them will permeate their shield of protection given by Almighty God. They will be two prophetic witnesses who throw a major wrench of death, torment, and divine proclamation into the machinery of the celebration bus that what would have been the glory days of the Satan possessed human called the Anti-Christ...Wiki article on lying in stateCut & 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!

About Anger (another segment of "Empowering Encouragement Now!")

Season 6, Ep. 123
My morning spiritual devotion was on anger, taken from Jonah 4:4 and 4:9 where "God said to Jonah, ‘Do you do well to be angry?’" God’s question was not a probe about morality- right or wrong- but a question of Job’s wisdom or use of good judgement in kindling within himself the fires of anger. Anger is not always or necessarily sinful, but it has such a tendency to run wild that whenever it displays itself, we should be quick to question its character, with this enquiry, "Do you do well to be angry?" Why should we be irritated with children, irate with employees, and intensely angry with companions? Is such anger honorable to our Christian profession, or glorifying to God? If we cannot control our tempers, what has grace done for us? Man's anger can be legitimate (2Sam 12:5). but the Old Testament Scriptures warn that anger can be outrageous (Prov 27:4), and stirs up strife (Prov 29:22). In contrast, it is said that the man slow to anger appeases strife (Prov 15:18) and a wise man turns from it (Prov 29:8). The next time you feel the emotion of anger rising up within you, ask your self the question God asked the prophet Jonah- "Do you do well to be angry?"https://danspira.com/2010/12/28/what-is-the-opposite-of-anger/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!
