Hey this is Mike Zwick from if not for God podcast our show stories of hopelessness turned and I hope your chosen Truth Network podcast is starting in just seconds. Enjoy it, share it, but most of all, thank you for listening and for choosing The Truth Podcast Network. This is the Truth Network get ready. It's one of America's most important, influential, respected voices on cultural and political issues and apologist Christian political advocate and author. Here is the founder and zooming of the citizen for America foundation, Dr. Chris Welk of the Christian perspective, overlooking God's word in order to develop a Christian worldview in modern culture on Chris she's Anna honored to have a very dear friend on her show today it once in a while you run across someone who makes a great impact on your life in today's gas is one of my heroes of the faith. He's written numerous books on one of my favorite topics and that in times prophecy.

He travels and speaks all over the world.

This is amazing to me. He has been to Israel more than 150 times and I want to tell you if you ever want to go to Israel.

This is the man you want to go with as few people know more about Israel than he does. As I mentioned Dr. Fraser is offered a number of books and video series including hell is for real. It could happen tomorrow. Walking where Jesus walked America. The tipping point signs of the coming Christ, the divine appointment. The glorious appearing. The Arab-Israeli conflict America of Israel, and so much more. He's also a contributor to a Bible that I have in my library and I love to use as the LaHaye prophecy Bible and he also worked on the project of the prophecy encyclopedia I met Dr. Fraser years ago when he was traveling to my hey I don't know if any of you read the books, the left behind series, and when those were real popular Dr. Fraser was traveling with Tim LaHaye and Ed Henson and that's where I met him at what was called the left behind conference on Bible prophecy down in Destin Florida years ago but you know what.

Since that time we had become dear friends and he's a fellow front-line soldier in the culture war a while back. He wrote a book called divorcing God the two Americas when I read that book I knew that we had find ways to partner together as we try to impact the culture for Jesus. I am so excited today to have a very dear friend and as I said, he's a real hero. The faith remains on what I call my personal Board of Directors.

He doesn't even know that but I look at men and women in the world that I want to try to emulate Marta my life, afternoon, and watch what they do and he is just had a tremendous impact on my life.

Dr. Gary Fraser thank you for being here today at work appreciate our relationship, but what year you also have been up a great champion for the word of God called the cry appreciate you, but like with thank you so I'm so excited there's so many things that we could talk about today and I'll try not to get on too many rabbit trails, but you know I'm I'm really concerned as I know you are about our culture what's going on today and some people seem surprised with what's going on, the culture, but I know you look a lot in the past. Look at how what's happening the past is going to impact the future.

Can you tell us a little bit about that, I'm a student of history that you don't. I absolutely love not only secular history, but I'm also very interested in biblical history as well.

Obviously, because I don't think you can or without understanding the other and one of the things that I've come to realize the years not only as a forecaster but also copper speaker traveling around the country. You mentioned earlier at support is that strangely enough the average person and I do not mean this in a condescending way, please give Arnold, but the average person is so busy in living life on a daily basis that we we fail to connect the dots with regard to what's happening around us and unfortunately today you and I both understand that we according to a recent survey released by my dear friend George Barna only 6% of professing Christian possess what we would call a biblical worldview and that is seeing the world, not to the social economically but seeing the world through the word of God and then acting accordingly and unexpectedly, because of that we have to honestly say upon a valuation standpoint that we have probably the most biblically illiterate generation that is ever existed. The couple that not just with the 6% biblical worldview, but for the first time to see them to read and understand it now.

Church membership in America have dropped below 50%. In addition to that, the fastest growing group of the and religion. Frankly, all the numbers and that is they have no religion whatsoever. They consider themselves many of them consider themselves to be spiritual, but I don't really have a way of defining that so the thing that strikes me so much he kill Peter in writing versus the computer but specifically Peter chapter 1 verse 12 and following Peter Rod and Andy knows that he's getting ready to go to heaven you know you got it.and when you write these words, that they are so important for us today. I will always remind you of these things even though you know them under firmly established in the truth. You now have a think it's right through Christ your inquiry.

As long as I live in the pit of this body because he goes on to say that I'll make every effort that after my departure, you'll always be able to remember these things and and what is it that Peter really talk about what goes on in that passage, Peter explained to us that that we have something that is stark in our lives that he sure to point us to truth and that is the prophetic word of God and he encourages and exhorts us to pay attention to the Scripture and the reason the fact he is today. Most people don't and they fail to realize what's happened around the US having a conversation just yesterday we had the a fellow who will play some golf with periodically and he is actually a pitching coach. One of the professional cleats and so forth. But the baseball think that is what he set up. You know, the fact is that I'm not so sure if the things that are happening and what in this paint a lot because of the number killings over July 4 weekend but he said I'm not so sure that the we don't just that the things are happening.

Think of the worst because we have more information or think they really be that bad in Austin with the combination of boat.

Not only is the world growing darker day by day about all that but we also have occult technology we have more access to information in real time than we've ever had before. Know the reason I want to bring that up is to say to our listeners today that I'm going to make a very bold statement here in this statement. Is this. We are terminal generation. We are the generation that is standing on the threshold of the coming of Jesus Christ, first for his bride, the church, and then at least seven years later, in the second coming of Christ when he comes physically and visibly to your now. Why must the absolutely adamant and positive that with a terminal generation. Let me I'm glad that someone out there is asking that question because I want to answer. So here's the key, but very few. 24 Jesus gives his most extensive teaching about the last days, in verse 32 he gives us a parable teaching that happens to be about a victory and many people it just that while this is unimportant because about a treatment with a point is not about gustatory. It is about a particular type of tree called the fig tree which was often referred to the Scripture, and it ended and Jesus had a wife that God the father had a way of always report to the Jewish people by either his line.

For example: Leah & Virgil part one part but for verse seven he refers mutual to speak his mind and then also use victory of the two metaphors that Jesus used most awfully often to describe the Jewish people.

The Jewish nation.

In Matthew 24 he says that there will be a final generation that will speed the rebirth of the fig trick. First of all, balk at the park.

We don't have time to deal with this extensive geography of the sort segment, but in Matthew 24. Jesus is teaching us that the figtree ID/Israel in or for Israel is that it was going to die.

With that happened on the diapers 170 A.D. with the temple was destroyed, so to speak, and the Jews were scattered all the base of the world. But Jesus also prophesied as gizmo, as did Moses all the way over good rocket Fixed and Isaiah 66 prophesies the same thing. Jeremiah, Ezekiel, all of the thing to profit one day even though the individual be scattered God would regather them for their land and that would be the rebirth of the pictorial, the figtree would come for life once again a joke. Signs of life with leaves on it and the twigs that would come out etc. and that would mark the beginning of the end that is of the terminal generation of the beginning of the article generation can I ask you question about that only go so the two parts, one can you tell our listeners what do you think the definition you how long.

Time is a generation and then another's controversy a little bit around that verso did it happen when Israel became a nation that the figtree bloom did bloom in the 60s when Jerusalem became under Israeli control, or would you have to wait until the Temple Mount is actually under control so hello generation in which 20 which one of those thoughts you think triggers her or his offer come to fruition of the prophecy. Be clear about what he said, this generation shall not pass away. Okay, I will be clear that we are small. He's not playing a definitive time, day or hour because we know the person is following first 20 24, 36, that no one knows the day nor the hour.

However, the Pharisees were chastised in Matthew chapter 16 because they failed to recognize the time or the sleaze of which they live now. So how long is the generation number one we go back to the book of beginnings in Genesis chapter 15 were told that a generation is 100 year it's it's couched in the context of historical narrative of the children of Israel being 400 years or more generation arrived, so a generation in the Old Testament is 100 years passed forward. We have people now taking the word the going to a Greek lexicon and looking up that word and will say typically speaking, time period of 35 to 40 years now that particular definition which I would not agree with happened to be the driving force behind the book that was written 88 reasons why Jesus was coming at 88. Based on the premise of the Jews becoming a nation of 48, a generation of 40 in 1988 and obviously that was wrong, but I'm going to stick to my God, that a generation is an old is is really talk in the first book of the Bible as 100 years.

Even though the psalmist tells us that we have 70 years 80 years.

Perhaps about what that said, I wanted to say so I will stay with the generation of hundred year. I'm also going to answer the question in that I am thoroughly convinced that the time clock began ticking on May 14, 1948, one Israel became a nation again doing what no other nation will not involve the light you you kind of catapulted me into my next up segment it to say that the thing that makes our day in our time. Different.

The reason that I can be so adamant about the fact that were the terminal generation is because of the existence of Israel. Back in their land.

You know, Ezekiel means Isaiah 66 verse like this, they should be borne in the day, yet no splitter was on really brought forth a child with a single day.

Israel did not exist okay babe and scouted all the world had been started, as recent as 1898, the slowly start moving back in the land after the first design is conference took place over Basil, Switzerland, but the process was slow and it took the Holocaust of World War II, the cultivation of the world to rise up and stand in agreement with God. And so all premium on May 14, 1948 the nation that did not exist became a living reality again, not just in the historical but the fulfillment of prophecy after prophecy. For example, Ezekiel 36 verse 24. I will take you out of all the vacant and all the countries and bring you back it put you at your lamp now.

The reason I will stick with 1948 is because Israel was already in existence in June 1967 the Reppert you may to the Six-Day War that some people would say well because they get possessed all of the land that is from the Mediterranean to the Jordan River that you know this was beginning but keep in mind, Israel had never let me begin emphatic they have never occupied all of the Leah that God has given to them as recorded in the covenant that God made with Abraham in Genesis chapter 15, so therefore, as far as I'm concerned, the starting date is the fact that Israel did not exist down one day they came to exist. 1948 the beginning. Fast-forward to some of you are already doing the math in your head what are you saying then the 2047 you know is what Jesus is going to come if that's what I want to make the point is not that that generation comes to an end.

It is at some point in that generation. Jesus said this generation shall not pass away at some point Chris in this August timeline. Between 1947 and 2019 48 at 2047 were going to have these events take place. You know I'm not a date setter.

I don't know that they don't know the hour, but I do recognize that because Israel is in the land. Several things must take place if we can some informational that in Matthew 24 but let me focus a couple things with the times don't get away from us here only display this wireless and very quickly number one we know that in these last days there is going to come a one world government dental to teaches us this, coupled with the angle. Chapter 7 the book of Revelation 1313 but let me just say quickly that we have for the first time the technological ability to see the literal fulfillment of so much of what the prophecies of the book of the Revelation, it really does when you think about this. I have an article on my desk that came out yesterday from the present for presidential talking about the work that is being done at the Pentecost, Pentecost, cathartic Pentagon there working on a microchip that detects COBIT another inspection will we already are familiar with microchip technology. We know that being done it several concrete goals. Basically, in Sweden, Switzerland, support. But the point is we know as we move toward a one-vote goblet that technology will allow government to control our lives in different aspect.

You don't believe that good nave. Talk about general, any person that doesn't believe that is nave to what is happening around, but having said that one of the things that we know is that we're going to have not only one world government. But what will River you can't have. This is really important point closer listening. You cannot have a one world government and have a superpower in the world. That is the bottom. Therefore, we have to look at where we're going. That is, as a nation and as a people. That is the nation of America. And I wrote my book, it could happen tomorrow future medical check the world about the death of America.

I don't talk about it, but it is a reality.

It is coming in by the way we're seeing that take place all around us. For those of us who are paying attention. For example, as you probably are aware 40% of all our bills and printed America became a nation that depicts have been printed under the by the end of the Thracian.

The printing presses have not flowed at all what we think haptic inflation is coming very quickly gases up if you pick one pocket that building materials are up over 50%. Can you imagine what happened with lumber today and spoke with the long and I remember the Carter years when get this Chris.

My mother virtually live off of the interest on her CD because we were paying between 12 and 14% to anything percent your grandparent at the world and left for group B. Think also remember the long gas line that we had during that thing time. But here's the thing with most of our younger iteration date does not have a frame of reference of where we have come from. Therefore they have no grasp of where we are going America as you and I know it is going the way it is happening. As Jesus said in Matthew 24.

He said all of these things would be like the birthing closer to the top is coming to work and report their frequency and intensity. We have seen changes take place with in unbelievable frequency and intensity of mind in your lifetime that is screaming was that Jesus is coming and I will tell you week with the group or the most relevant illustrations that I can come up with his wife all happen and have continue continue to see what happened has during this whole COBIT thing because this showed us just how quickly Americans will fall in line believe what they're told in the media and get in lockstep with included the stripping of so many of our individual freedoms are God-given right about contained in our Constitution by people who are hungry for power and they're still trying to convert that are and will continue until finally there.

This whole situation comes to the typical will you talk about connecting the dots and most pastors never preach on Bible prophecy so people don't see what's here. We've only got about four minutes left. Can you tell us real quick. You have to have your back is this is fascinating and were just getting into the meat of this, people wonder what you had in our country change so much of the past year and you're telling us this is not a surprise. God told us it would happen. The generation of when Israel came back.

This is got to happen in order for Jesus return to come so real quickly. About three and half minutes where's America headed and what can we as Christians do about all week we'd open America's instruction and portfolio have many (what I believe is a great revival of America quickly turn back to God.

Work Chris muscle group would long for that lasting no evidence of that whatsoever. And I certainly don't anything in Scripture, God can do anything at any time. Obviously, but I will tell you there is a point at which its Romans chapter 1 tells the that God gives them up and I think America has passed that tipping point, I think that we've gone so far in our rebellion against God, but were now that you were moving if we were not going to incur the judgment of God one day we already get the job. I look at our culture across the board. It is staggering and so we we are. Our job now is to remember that this is not our whole. We're just passing through. We have dual first ball as believers because of my faith and trust in Christ and not repent the repentance of my fan.

I have a hole in heaven one day for all eternity. But I'm also America not love our country and filled my job at your job all Facebook we dispose of all the play and asked for God's grace and mercy. Number one because every day that God gives us is another opportunity for us to share our faith to the end that someone else might come to the right but you week ago. I have the opportunity of a young man this strange the capital funding but became very early on Monday morning to look at a project that we were working on it gave me a great opportunity to talk with him about his relationship with Christ.

And what's amazing is people are open. If we have the courage to lovingly show interest in care about them and their spiritual lives that we often but the second thing is we have to fight in every arena whether it be taking a stand against critical race theory, which is currently wasted. The indoctrination of our children take the stand against the open of origin that is that is being widely accepted in our culture, i.e. homosexuality like the client. All of the thing and it will be be clear about that. This is Satan's desire to destroy remember he came to live to kill Roy and he wants to destroy every single person can't. And these are avenues that are being used. I never realized that I would be a day in my lifetime where we would not only openly except locally boat gross conversion as being normal. That's what we are today. Clark position needs to be. We everyone about the name of Jesus are called to be a bank within these last days.

The continue to talk about not just about Jesus coming but Jesus coming becoming personal in our individual lives that people might know him as their Lord and Savior, and that they might know because only he can give you one fork living and because the time is short. We need to be about the father. That's a great place to end at Dr. Fraser and you know you do. You talk about connecting dots you shown us what's coming and Jesus is coming very soon and we need to tell everybody we know how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and if we don't have one ourselves. We need to do that today so want to thank you for going horrific right is not Catholic, Presbyterian thing is a God thing is Jesus loves us, approved on the cross, he sure did suppose if you listen Dr. Gary Frazier has so much great information to visit so of his many books.
