We want to encourage you this hour. There is a hope no man can take away from you though some are trying will talk about it to say this is something of a single crap. There's a tribe I don't know the whole world.

When we leave the secret rapture strongman that's with that anytime of the secret rapture with more lie about it no more than 15-year-old last door. The one Jen Marco talks with a first part of our program with Dr. Douglas Stauffer about the blessed hope rapture of the church. We carry Dr. Stouffer's book reviving the blessed hope of Thessalonians is a literal attack and a scoffing of the rapture and particularly the pre-tribulation rapture of the church, which the Bible supports came and got Stauffer defend that in our first segment.

While many churches remain silent on this and related topics. Olive tree ministries and understanding times radio will not remain silent.

We are defenders of the truth of Scripture is John Markel and Dr. Douglas, how is pre-tribulation rapture teaching, which states that Jesus will take the church to heaven before the tribulation is so popular, even though its leading advocates admit there is not one single verse of Scripture that actually teaches this new doctrine, several preacher leaders.

They persist on one of mention that there's not a single verse 30 teaches a pre-tribulation rapture.

I was going to say the same thing. Okay, I don't think there is a single person that supposedly tribulation theory offered $10,000 to those holding to a pre-tribulation rapture if they could produce just one person or past states that Jesus will rapture the church before the tribulation and welcome to the program. Well, that was just a little tease because were carrying a book. Some of you are aware, we advertised it up to six weeks ago reviving the blessed hope of Thessalonians. The rapture commentary series and I am the author of the book online with me from the East Coast. Seems Dr. Douglas Stauffer will give some contact information a little bit later, but I do recommend the book because the rapture is under attack. Pretrip is under attack will spend the next 30 minutes talking about this Dr. Doug Stauffer, welcome to the program for the first time. Always great to be on your program.

Jan I can't wait to start commenting on that clip. Well, yeah, let's do that because he and I have already talked look this is an accusation hurled against us. You can't find one verse that says and there's a pretrip rapture well but there are books of the Bible talking about the pretrip rapture.

There's eight chapters in Thessalonians, right, and every one of those chapters mentions the pre-tribulation rapture along with three of them mentioning the day of the Lord or the tribulation. But when we're looking at these comments that are being made about being a theory or something like that that simply follow Fleming Titus 213 for looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of the great God our Savior Jesus Christ. Now here's the problem.

When you teach something that is contrary to people looking for Jesus Christ and you tell me looking for the antichrist looking for the mark of the beast. The next verse says that leaving and that blessed hope people will purify themselves will be zealous of good works. The verse before the PTO for denying ungodliness worldly left. We should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world looking for that blessed hope for what people are doing that teach this false teaching of a post-trip mid-trip pre-wrath type of rapture is that they are getting their focus off of Jesus Christ. And that's why the church is becoming very carnal because they are not focused on looking for Jesus. Every day you said I'm quoting here say we believe the blessed hope of the church or the rapture, the imminent return of the Lord for his body, the church is a direct significant bearing on one's personal life and holiness. NIC here Douglas Stauffer that too many believers and pastors feel this is a side issue. In fact, it's a controversial issue. Therefore, we don't want to go here when it has everything to do with the future with our eternity. I think they feel it has little to do with how we live today and that's a huge miscalculation. I agree out quote another Scripture for your first John 32 toward the end it says when he shall appear, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is, and every man that hath this hope in him purifies himself. The reason that we have such a carnal Christianity is because the church is not teaching about people looking for that lesson. Home. Another one is first John 32 beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that when he shall appear, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is in every man that hath this hope in him purifies himself. I guess I just quoted the same two verses their first John 32, but I quoted earlier when he appears, we are going to be like him. With that hope you sleep purify herself in your book, which we carry so center store only. Please resizing the blessed hope of Thessalonians to let me ask you this. Why do you think that this topic.

First of all has to be revive something that has to be revived, has expired, or at the very least it's on life support. In my opinion is that the topic of eschatology, end Times Bible prophecy has been on life support.

The last maybe 25 years I hear from people almost daily looking for a church that will at least reference this topic is not regularly, at least occasionally, frequently, and they are told again as I already referenced. It's not relevant for a day to day living or controversy all over. No one can really understand the topic or we don't know which version of the topic is correct, but why do you think it has to be revived.

What has to be revive because Daniel is a closed book till the time of the end of the reason that we see a revival in it. Now let's Daniel 12 for is because Daniel is opening during this time of the end that were living in Daniel opens Revelation. Conversely, further opening of Revelation opens Daniel.

It goes both ways. You and I and many others like us. We spent thousands of hours and study on the subject matter. The average pastor. He can't devote rain on a time he has to prepare for several sermons each week, counseling, visitation, funerals, wedding, we've done the work for him in our writings and are teaching. That's why we put these things out now. Why is it so important because what the devil does a gleeful when he robs Christian of their rewards.

Second Timothy 48 henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give to me at that day and not to me only, but under all them also that love his hearing is appearing are disappearing at the rapture of the church were not looking for the revealing of Jesus Christ of the revelation that comes with the second coming that comes during Daniel semisweet cannot at the rapture play clip here and I want to build a little bit of what was already talked about. Here's where I got acquainted with you, talking to Dr. Doug Stauffer because were carrying his book reviving the blessed hope of Thessalonians.

It's about defending the rapture. It's about defending the pretrip rapture. Quite frankly, but I got acquainted with you because you did most intriguing debate on rapture timing with pastor Joe Schimmel. This is a few years ago Pike's Peak prophecy conference. Couple of things stood out at me, Doug, and that is number one. I'm so glad you two guys were pretty respectful of each other. In other words, there was no sniping going back and forth that's not always the case as a matter fact you can find things online. It goes beyond sniping, it's just plain contentious and mean-spirited when it comes to debating this topic. I got acquainted with you in that debate, and then I've also been aware and referencing again Joe Schimmel because he put out a four hour film in 2014 the end of the world really isn't as so many treated church is not rapture to have great tribulation is all what church has been left ill prepare to face the Christ what gift to him what he's praying. If the pre-tribulation rapture is false in the blessed hope will become the blessed actually comes true millions of pre-tribulation. What is the millions who have been led astray by the pretrip teaching become part of the great falling away. Jesus warned take place time left behind led astray examining the origins of the secret pre-tribulation rapture features vital and time insights from prophecy teachers should Jacob crash and Joel Richards pre-tribulation rapture is one of the possible issues of your pastor.

That's not repairing your people to face potentially the Antichrist and the relation in this hour simply because your denomination teaches that or whatever. Personally, I think your family will that was part of the trailer.

The voice you heard Joel Richardson there.

We need to prepare to meet the Antichrist. I know Joel is a brother in the Lord.

I really love the mighty does some good work by way of particular his love for Muslims and winning them to faith, but Doug Stauffer never wants are Christians told to prepare for tribulation for Daniel's 70th week or from facing the Antichrist will never agree with you, and I am just of Mammon in that expression as you are a mean show me where all will take you to Matthew 24 words the nation of Israel being addressed by the Lord Jesus Christ talking about the last days when Christ going to send back his angel to gather the elect these coming back behind him with the Army but that's not the rapture. That's the second something that this book on the server. The rapture is totally different that rapture is not a reward for living right. The rapture is a promise given to the church who is going to be the state of apostasy and I believe a lot of these mockers than people in these last days about the pre-tribulation rapture actually get up, disturb the truth or destroy the truth in such a way that people were mocking us people are mocking the truth and that is in danger, that's dangerous.

Whether your Jacob pressure Joe or Joe Schimmel never are we told to prepare for Daniel's semisweet again.

The tribulation is for the salvation of the nation of Israel and Doug, I just think this should be so obvious to everyone because the Bible is makes it obvious that the tribulation is for judging the Christ rejecting world. But secondly, it is to bring Israel to salvation, and nowhere does the Bible talk about the church experiencing the wrath of God. The church is going to experience and is experiencing the wrath of man and the wrath of Satan, never the wrath of God never know that it correctly. In Revelation, and you study it as you know, Revelation, chapters 1 to 3 talk about the church.

Revelation 415.

After this, after what after that church age that's pictured there.

John called up to heaven when you see the church in chapters 1, two and three. You see, the wrath in chapter 6 through 18 you see the church returning. In chapter 19 ring where you see the church you don't see the wrath and where you see the wrath you don't see the church that the simple as anybody can I do a chart might throw it up on the board look at this chart is all 22 chapters. Here's the church boom boom boom boom boom, here's the wrath where you see the wrath you don't see the church and John is a picture of the rapture. Revelation 41. That's 1 Simple Way in Revelation to show that now. I opened the program and that you might not have heard that consent was part of our production.

Earlier we play the clip. Actually, it's a clip is you talking about the so-called secret rapture, which of course is nonsense wanted to explain why this secret rapture is not going to be very secret. I think that terminology was come up with when they talk about a secret rapture just meaning it's not the revealing of Jesus Christ, like at the second coming, the appearing of Christ.

That doesn't mean that the world won't hear the trauma that they won't see or hear anything. They will be millions of people missing at The secret.

The only thing that's different about the second coming versus the rapture second coming Christ touches down to this earth, he destroys all of his enemies. He protects those that have endured to the end of that seven year.

He sends his angel to protect the with the Bible says Christ himself shall descend with the voice of God, the archangel and the trumpet got they may hear that voice they may hear that trumpet not to be secret, as in the sense that the world doesn't know anything took place. Obviously, no right but in this production of left behind are led astray. There's a constant reference to a secret rapture and I hear this from others as well just plain people who are anti-rapture. Maybe the timing is not relevant to them. The fact that we even believe in one and they mockingly referred to as a secret which anything but a secret you're right. You just like saying it to escape this doctrine as far as the rapture goes, that's not true either. What they do, they vilify us by trying to control the terminology. It's a terrible thing for anybody to get away with unanswered play another clip. It is a view which is 32nd clip here Emily come back.

I'd like to talk to you little bit about it because I think that there are many who are accusing you and I because we are pretrip and staunchly so that we think and what about this persecution. How can you say were not can suffer persecution obviously persecution going on as we speak, Middle East, Africa and other places that we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, so shall ever be with the Lord.

Wherefore comfort one another with these words, I don't know about you best for the company. You know that I may never die. It doesn't say out-of-state some tribulation, persecution or or all those live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution doesn't escape all that eventually you will but does mean is not common and it is, I'm here to tell you better be right with God because when it comes maybe the only Scripture to be able to access what you memorize.

Okay Doug Stauffer but you're referring to persecution coming from man, not from God. That is correct whole wrote that in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God. He may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer a thing that he's not bringing the persecutions and tribulation against the church thing you're suffering because of man. Don't happen this whole thing doesn't mean that we believe that the church now isn't going to suffer some tribulation persecution.

It certainly does tribulation bring of patients there framing these arguments to make a say something that we don't say they're saying we believe something we don't believe and really it's a lie that's not being unkind just saying look stop changing our words with numeric teaching young twisting our teaching, which they're doing this is Margaret McDonald nonsense as well, and that was a major, major part of that left behind or lend strength for our really tough thing to have to watch Margaret McDonald's. She's responsible for the pretrip rapture. She's post-trip for Pete's sake. I flew to Scotland.

I got the original documentation which I still have which I in the debate. I took a five minute portion of mine.

I threw it up there. Joe Schimmel backtracked and said well you we don't take that position and you just build a strong man. I mean, you talk about the kettle calling the pot black.

That's all they do is build strawmen against us. And I wasn't as an hour on his video on Margaret McDonald and for him to say was other people speaking he produced the video so he has to either believe that in Dorset, but he can't distance himself and that he knows now that she's post-trip whether he knew that before the debate or not, but the other argument going along with that is what you and I believe, by the way, folks.

The book is reviving the blessed hope, the Thessalonians, and it is certainly a treatise on the pretrip rapture is that this was not even well let's put it this way, fellow by the name of John Darby brought it into prominence. Before that, nobody knew or talked about the rapture, the pretrip rapture. It's all thanks to Margaret McDonnell and John Darby and that is a lie. A blatant lie.

It sure is. The point is you can go back and you can find people that taught that I have it without a doubt from original source documents back to the 1400s, so you can't say it's brand-new.

Then they go back to the so-called church fathers and try goading them, but many of their documents have been doctored by the horror church and that's just the way it is. You can't look at things and say well this is older this is been here since the beginning. You can find the pre-tribulation rapture all the way back the things they are looking at are dubious at best. I think another point that needs to be emphasized here is for instance let's just spend a moment here on this so-called pre-wrath rapture. Now there are multiple rapture timing positions.

You and I is dispensational us to believe in the pretrip and there's the mid-trip. There is the post-trip to go through all seven years and then there's the pre-wrath. The pre-wrath would say that rapture would happen before the outpouring of God's wrath in the tribulation will Douglas Stauffer in my mind and in my reading and studying the entire tribulation is wrath. My goodness, when the church is gone where the restraining force on the earth right now. Once we are gone.

I maintain within minutes, certainly days.

All heck is going to break loose all around the globe and there's not going to be a time that won't be I may say at hell on earth. And that's true I give you an example. Along the same lines when the seals are open yet they say well the wrath starts in the six seal will whose opening the field, but the Lamb of God right so if you have the Lamb of God opening the first feel you can have the wrath starting at the six seal it's debunked simply by just considering Scripture with Scripture.

You can learn more at Dr. Doug Stauffer's website. Bible and again.

The book is in my bookstore reviving the blessed hope of Thessalonians. Olive tree olive tree and call my office. You can find it in my various newsletters, print in e-news letter we've been promoting it here for probably six weeks at least, and having a tremendous response because honestly dug the remnant out there does want to understand this much more clearly as we open the whole program.

Most churches certainly in the majority of churches are not talking about any of this just a couple of other issues. While we have time. Doug, I think the first in Revelation Revelation 310 is significant, at least to me because you have kept my word about patient endurance. I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world to try those who dwell on the earth. Revelation 310 and then in the following chapters.

Of course, the tribulation begins and is again as I keep saying it becomes hell on earth.

But again, Revelation 310 says that he's going to keep the church from the hour or trial that is coming upon the whole world and I certainly agree, as I pointed out you got the church in the first three chapters, and then he says after this that is after the church age because the last word in Revelation 322 says he that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. After this, John is caught up in the heaven showing up rapture. And I also point out that heaven is open twice it's open in Revelation 41, with John going up, and then it's opened up again in Revelation chapter 19. And that is with the actual church itself following Jesus Christ on white horses coming back with him. Revelation 1911 I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse and he that sat upon him and talks about verse 14 the armies which were in heaven. By the way that dupes anybody that says were rapture up to the cloud and float around and come back with Jesus because it says the armies which were in heaven, not the Army split rent on the cloud for a couple years according you here.

I love this particular paragraph you say the New Testament church lives together serves together loves together rejoices together reaps rewards together and one day will leave together to meet Christ in the clouds see this in my words. Now that is a hope with reviving.

I think Doug and that's why I wish our churches would present this message just what you just said the church lives together loves together rejoices together reaps rewards together in one day will leave together to meet Jesus Christ in the clouds that is so worth reviving and that's why it is so shall we ever be with the warm comfort one another with these words in it so much that we can escape this doctrine.

It's a promise to the church. I tell people this all the time. If we're in the Laodicean church age 4 out of the Philadelphia church Asia Philadelphia church age was a great time of revival. I tell people today all the time you need to be a Philadelphia Christian and a Laodicean day and that's what I try to tell people to do getting harder and harder to do as the church slips more and more into apostasy.

And I've covered that on here here recently. Honestly, it's getting harder and harder because the church is not all of them.

Thankfully, many are holding to truth. Many are not building to truth and they're not and that's what we put out the material that we put out.

That's why look at my book and you're making it a resource for others to get a lesson. I read it I told you this. I read the majority my material that I read now is against the pre-tribulation rapture and the reason for that. I don't suggest anybody else do it. I'm doing my homework.

I want to know where is my argument week is very thing that I need to consider that I haven't considered that the other side is making and I go through there and listen. Sometimes it challenges me for weeks until I get an answer, but there is not one answer that God hasn't given me every time he points me to a pre-tribulation rapture of the church, because nothing has disproved, and not one point that any of these writers or speakers have made has disapproved the pre-tribulation rapture when I was growing up and just starting to learn about some of these issues or so late great planet Earth influenced me as a young person significantly plus a trip to Israel, but in my church and most any other evangelical church.

I was aware of. At that time. This wasn't a debate. It's become a debate in the last maybe 25 years or so.

Maybe in the 90s.

I'm not sure what happened anyway. Had the pre-wrath people come along Van Camp and another's give me a minute or two on how you think this transition from once everyone kinda believing in this pre-trip to morphing into these other types of theologies. While I think the Bible prophesied it in second Peter 33 knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts and saying where's the promise of his coming since the fathers fell asleep, etc. the Bible said to be scoffers. I think what these people are there scoffers.

They are looking at the pre-tribulation rapture and saying listen.

We believed it and he didn't come and things are getting worse. Look at all these people suffering tribulation all over the world and your escape this doctrine. They just don't believe the Bible because the Bible is very clear that the church is going to be rapture about for the wrath of God comes upon this earth I think is clear is well. I think it's crystal clear the way the case is made for this folks.

It's in the book we carry.

It's in my story into my office a call. Reviving the blessed hope of Thessalonians. And as I introduced the segment I said something that has to be revived. See probably on life support and this topic. Quite frankly, is on life support. The reasons for that arm. Well, Legion number one seminaries have dropped pastors are trained in it. There's just all sorts of reasons. We've had the fringe crowd with had they Harold camping's and others come along and there are an embarrassment to this topic that all sorts of them Edgar Whisenhunt back in the 80s 88 reasons the Lord is coming back in 1988 didn't happen came out with another book be 1989. Thanks, offer him down to the minute if you want to wrap it up, be my guest. What I would say that his name is spelled WISC and OT so it sounds like wise, not anybody dating the rapture is causing the scoffers to have the fodder that they need to try to shoot at the truth of the pre-tribulation rapture. We need to do.

We need to be looking for Jesus every morning every afternoon every evening and if he doesn't come back today. You wake up tomorrow. It'll help you live right because you're looking for Jesus Christ come back. You can learn and again signed the book in my bookstore reviving the blessed hope of Thessalonians folks. This ministry will take a strong stand until the end, a way we can take a strong stand on this topic.

This is our only hope. If you look at headlines day after day like I do without the blessed hope of the any minute return of the Lord Jesus Christ. The fact that it could be today. This evening, first thing in the morning. I mean, I think I'd lose my mind.

Without that blessed hope Doug Soffer. Thanks for everything you do appreciate it will stay in touch. Thank you. By the way, folks, I'm going to continue this topic next week as I don't want to drop it but have Dave Ragan on with me next week to talk about the very same thing the blessed hope, the coming rapture of the church.

Learn why things are falling apart, falling into place. I never thought I would see the day when Christian Internet program Rick Liles of true news, which is hardly true. By the way would rant and rave and offer a get this brief for standing with Israel.

Prayer almost an altar call that includes read and for being pro-Israel. Jen Martel has done regular updates in her.

I never thought I would see the day series. She spends the next seven times radio with her latest.

We live in challenging times, but it was never thought we would see what is happening in our world we all be sold in life and belabor the K we see going around this daily stand for the balance of you know every few months. I like to bring in updated my I never thought I'd see the day series, and indeed, there is so much I never thought I would live to see clearly we're not in Kansas anymore times of change. So here is an updated list of things I didn't think I'd ever see. Never thought I'd see politicians talk about the world ending in 12 years, but never in a biblical context.

This end of the world mindset will get no one to heaven. I'm referring to Alexandria okay zero Cortez, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress making headlines when she said that she and other young Americans fear the world ending in 12 years if we don't address climate change.

Listen to her here.

Well, I know well 12 years of climate change how we can like the war World War II leaders. The thing Masao see the world is going to and but not the way you suggest Jesus Christ is going to return the unbelieving world will experience what is known as the tribulation and the world will take eight terrible hit and that's what you need to be talking about the global warming of hell is far more serious than your make-believe global warming, but the world has at least 1007 years left.

The duration of the tribulation and the millennium living on. I didn't think I would live to see Fox News a long time. Go to source for news.

We thought we could trust, teacher, town halls for raging liberals, including a town hall for Bernie Sanders who wants to see the socialist takedown of America so Fox News sensors Judge Jeanine Taro last March for asking some legitimate questions about our Muslims in Congress now.

Fox News gives the spotlight to those who want to destroy our country have they lost their minds for sure.

They're going to start losing their viewers well moving on. I never thought I would see the day when Christian Internet program Rick Wiles of true news, which is hardly true. By the way would rant and rave and offer a get this reap for standing with Israel. Prayer almost an altar call that includes read pentane for being pro-Israel hear it for yourself why any believer would get hoodwinked and suckered into this. James says, who has bewitched you who have put you under a spell.

It says clearly here in Isaiah what Zion is, why would you want dirt when you could have heaven. Why would you want a building made of stone when you can have the living Temple that you dwell with forever. Why would you trade something material for something heavenly and spiritual. You don't have to. Maybe watching this today and maybe you said yourself young.

I don't know what to believe anymore. I'm so confused.

Yes Satan is confusing. People today.

He's the author of confusion. He wants us to take her eyes off Jesus by looking at 1/3 temple by looking at the building a greater piece of real estate extending from the Nile all the way to Euphrates taking over all the stations and that's the goal that's the goal to take over all this region and to make that sphere of influence to last in their minds eternally. When they call Jerusalem the eternal capital of Israel there replacing God with Jerusalem because they're saying Jerusalem is eternal. There's only one thing that's truly eternal and that's God the father and that's the only one the only one in so if you're watching this today and you said doc I have never seen it before. Never understood before. What I do. You need to repent. Right now you need to call out to God right now think God Lord I'm so sorry. I don't know how I was so deceived I will how was so bewitched by by all of this, I thought it was a good thing to support the people of Israel thought was good thing to help Israel but now I see it's just people using the name of Israel people using the people of Israel in order to line their own pockets in order to build their own kingdoms in order to make themselves feel important Lord.

Right now I repent. I turn away from it the other way.

Now Jesus you are my Zion Jesus you are my Zion Jesus you are my promise land. Jesus you are my temple. Jesus you are my eternal capital Lord write down the name of Jesus. If you said that, and you've turned away from that the Lords can begin to do work in your heart and your life.

Well, that was Rick Wiles sidekick Doc Burkart.

Folks, this is delusional at best. As Jesus was born in Israel, Jewish man.

If this outfit daily rants against God's land and people.

And someday will be held accountable.

Ironically, this program is called true news. I call it sick news and wonder why any true believer listens to this untrue news. Okay moving on. Never thought I'd see the day when an Islamic mom would warn America about certain Muslims. Well Mohammed.Tahiti is doing just that.

Congresswomen Johan Omar and Rashida to leave our dangerous, he says their real goals have nothing to do with defending America or protecting American values. He says they are extremists and they threaten the safety of all America. Likewise, there is Alexandria okay zero Cortez, the Imam says it is ridiculous that she was ever voted into Congress did she condemn the attack on Christians in Sri Lanka know she condemn anti-Semitism. No, this is an amazing Muslim Imam is risking his life to speak out and call out what he sees as anti-Americanism, anti-Semitism and anti-Christianity. Again his name is Imam Mohamed Tahiti okay moving on.

I never thought I would see the day when dozens of abortion workers would quit the industry, thanks to a fairly low budget film title unplanned nor did I think I would see the day that such a compelling film that would save the lives of countless babies would face so many hurdles just to get an audience listen to writer and director Chuck Conzelmann talk about the struggle to get this film shown to the public, members of committee appear here today with my lifelong friend and business partner Terry Solomon was my cowriter, codirector, coproducer of the film unplanned, which is the true love story about a Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood surgical abortion clinic director who after singing abortion take place in real time on a sonogram screen image created via the ultrasound probe that Abby herself was holding turned her entire worldview upside down and became a pro-life advocate that film is playing in theaters nationwide as we speak. From the outset. Make a pro-life film. The pro-choice town Los Angeles, we knew we would face a number of challenges moving past the challenges of production and postproduction and limiting my comments to the marketing campaign. Please allow me to highlight some of those young JA settled us with an R rating which Troy Dix discourages much of the Christian audience and all of the Church of latter-day Saints from seeing our film since they have a general prohibition against seeing R-rated films also preclude us from using the single most effective form of motion picture advertising paid placement of our theatrical trailer before other films in theaters, but with an R rating. We were prohibited from advertising for anything other than other R-rated films without special permission which we sought and were denied.

We also looked advertising cable-television but with the exception of Fox News and CBN were systematically denied access to the outlets where we sought to advertise among which were lifetime up TV Hallmark HDTV USA network Food Network. The travel Channel, DIY, and the cooking channel lifetime which is owned by A&E networks, joint venture, Walt Disney and Hearst communications told her buyers at the refusing to the quote sensitive nature of the film."

Previously promoted an interview with Scarlett Johansson which he touted the benefits of Planned Parenthood. We consider these blanket refusals highly unusual and highly discriminatory and are formally petitioning the SEC look further into the matter in this environment. We rather naturally looked to go to social media with our advertising spend. But once again we found ourselves stymied Google ads, formally known as Google AdWords block to the entirety of the unplanned prerelease banner ads should probably point out consisted of a woman half of her face with your coming down and worth said what she saw changed everything. I don't think they were particularly offensive. Then in late May Canada completely banned the film from being shown in that country. Now the Bible said becoming a day when good would be called Evo Isaiah 520 I think were seeing that day as I speak.

Moving on. I didn't think I'd see the day when half of America's pastors admit they are afraid to speak out on certain issues because they might send church members. Thus, they dare not defend traditional marriage or offend the LGBT Q crowd again by their own admission this is a new report from the Barna group and it revealed that 9/10 pastors said they feel that helping Christians form biblical beliefs about specific issues is a major part of their job but they feel pressure about these hot button issues. They said they felt limited in their ability to speak about controversial issues and we wonder why we have a confused nation.

I think it should be obvious. Again, I am just reviewing some issues that I never thought I'd live to see the day I do this every few months. Moving on in my list here.

I never thought I'd see the day that $235,000 of our tax dollars would be spent for a virulent anti-Semitic event at the University of North Carolina this past spring, Ami Horwitz, investigative filmmaker who often exposes campus madness. Will he produced a video that ought to terrify anyone familiar with the history of Weimar Germany then and now universities were among the leaders in whipping up Jew hatred and actually persecuting Jews.

And remember, such persecution never stops with Jews, but we seem to be there again where at a point where multiple academic departments at various universities in the most blatant University of North Carolina publicly owned and funded institution that is comfortable sponsoring an academic conference with open Jew hatred and government funds are allocated to sponsor it. Let's hear Ami mommy Horwitz I'm here the campus of the University of North Carolina were UNC and Duke or holding a joint conference on the conflict in Gaza but came here to get a sense the perspectives of the people attending the conference. This was a major conference with hundreds of students, professors and administrators spent the weekend bashing Israel and whitewashing the terrorist organization Hamas.

If it only stopped there. This is a professor who I asked about her views on the spate of attacks in New York by black teens on Jews and synagogues Flexeril have a lot of also reason to be angry at you is now the conference would allow me to film inside my sound guy set me up with a hidden Mike with very little prodding the veneer of being anti-Israel in an effort to hide their hatred of Jews was easily scratched away and evolved into open anti-Semitism.

I first asked them about the most powerful modern anti-Semitic troop is Jewish money control US government policy not device to a slot in the Jewish lobby is influencing our government and how that's changing US policy thing you know you meeting like procedure. Current I'm Jewish.

I could already tell you I don't think that not all hired classroom there on the treatment of Jews by Jews that are mostly in the club but there is come to Israel through state still is best for you telling me that the Jewish government sterilized Ethiopian Jews coming into Israel.

That's crazy.

Just days after the conference. Swastikas were found on campus 38. The largest departments and schools of the University of North Carolina sponsor this event also got a federal grant of nearly 1/4 of $1 million.

They should all be ashamed if you just joined me you are listening to understanding the times radio and Jan Markel going over the list. Most current list to my I never thought I'd see the day items this to three times a year and share them in my E and print newsletters and on air sign-up for those E and print newsletters online at our website.

Olive tree views views as an viewpoint. Olive tree Along this same theme. I never thought I'd live to see the day that one third of Americans now disbelieve the fact that 6 million Jews perished in the Holocaust and almost 70% of millennial's do not know what Auschwitz is with the staggering rise again of anti-Semitism. This should trouble everyone will Holocaust ignorance and denial while they are rampant today. Listen to these high schoolers who have no idea what happened just 80 years ago school in Pennsylvania yes and I'm sassy for questions.

In general, answer questions, what was the Holocaust. The Holocaust on the spot know it was a it was something happening like I know where did the Holocaust happened, I have no idea where did it start which country I have no idea if the I don't think so.

Which country was Adolf Hitler the leader off.

I think it's Amsterdam Messer Africa about how many years about if two 1800. 300 years ago. Maybe what were the prison camps, called common when they commonly known as I know this incident.

See concentration camps.

Can you name one. Now one can you name a concentration camp. What was Auschwitz. I don't know. I'm not sure was the night of broken glass. What was the night of broken glass clover the Nuremberg laws. Once again, I'm not sure what were the Nuremberg trials.

I don't know what was the significance of a ship called the same limit which United States president was responsible for sending a boatload of Jews back to a certain death in Europe. Not sure I don't know.

Have you ever heard that before know I haven't Sheila surprised when I said that you have heard that story. No I didn't.

I never heard it. I have no what was the final solution think is just at the end of the world just he was the Nuremberg trials is the war crimes against Nazi party leading the final session. Let's what was his plan that he called the final solution you have any Jews were murdered. I'm not sure I want to say I want to see 3 million.

I higher higher is 300 hundreds of thousands, say like a million share well then we have representative proceeded to leave from Michigan says that she gets a calming feeling and thinking of the Holocaust. She then went on to rewrite history and say that the Palestinians resettled the Jews fleeing the Holocaust when in fact, folks. The Palestinians were invented by Yasser Arafat in the 1960s.

I never thought I would see the day I didn't think I'd live to see the day that the media would melt down because our president likes to hire people of faith Mike Pompeo and VP Mike pence, and many others. The New York Times says this causes them to be quote horrified when you become a crime to do this. The media can't seem to wrap their minds around the idea that faith is not disqualifying for employment. The left cannot comprehend the fact that Christians are not only nominated for high appointments but that people of faith are embraced in this administration.

Of particular horror. As Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's regular Bible reading his concern for religious liberty, and even his belief in a literal rapture. It is horrifying to the left that evangelical beliefs might be influencing American diplomacy and other public policy.

Moving on. I never thought I'd see the day when a Muslim in Congress would verbally condemn all Christian fundamentalists and no one in Congress condemned this imagine the Christian stood up in Congress and then slammed Islam, but representative ill Han Omar condemned evangelicals recently in the House of Representatives and there was no outrage religious fundamentalists are currently trying to manipulate state laws in order to impose their believes on an entire society with complete disregard for voices and the rights of American women. Recent efforts like those in Alabama and Georgia are only the latest in a long history of efforts to criminalize women for simply existing to punish us when we don't conform to their attempts to control us, but because it's happening here with the support of the ultraconservative religious right to collect religious freedom.

It's simply unthinkable. Well, moving on. I never thought I'd see the day that another entertainment outfit CBS programming is called the good fight. Send out a tweet that encourage the assassination of Pres. Donald Trump.

This is a CBS crime drama about joining the resistance that used target words including phrases such as assassinate Pres. Trump and eliminate mar Lago. The Secret Service had to be drawn into this controversy.

What kind of society other than a banana republic makes continuous jokes about taking out its leader when they are doing everything they can to make the country stronger. Clearly our entertainment industry is more bankrupt than we could ever imagine. Okay moving on. I never thought I'd see the day when eight-year-olds would receive injections for their gender confusion. I mean, isn't this child abuse in any society, medical doctors and a mom of a trans identifying child are urging the government to shut down medical operations that are harming children their efforts to resist the medicalization of gender as led them to discover that government-funded research now allows sex hormones such as testosterone to be given to girls as young as eight, I wasn't prepared to learn of the life of 11-year-old jazz is a little older now whose parents are proud that he is a she, thanks to the progressive left this kind of child abuse is happening all over the Western world in the name of tolerance and diversity. Let's listen. They are the words and want to hear about that.she is such a run about a little girl girl named jazz the word about doesn't begin to cover it. Just 11 years old she's taken what most children and their families for God is a terrible secret undivided smashing into the open.

She is the brave and beautiful new phase of a child born in the body is just as full of life, self-confident fall plowing self. She wears pink cleats on the side you is she not only dreams of she swims like if you didn't know. Would you believe this 11 you was biologically a boy let's get this straight jazz are you a boy, I am only a girl like that's all I consider myself as jazz is transgender boy living is jazz thousand seven. She was only six years old. This document cases only transition male to female. The quality act is ever past it would pressure medical and counseling professionals to promote LGBT affirmation in their practice. Even if the client wants a different outcome. Doctors, counselors, medical facilities would be required to prescribe treatments and procedures such as puberty blocking drugs cross sex hormones and sex reassignment surgeries to gender confused children. I just never thought I would see the day before I wrap this up. Let me remind you one more time.

Well let me wrap this up because I just got over a bunch of bullet points that I never thought I'd live to see the day and I know many of you feel the same way and when we hear of the foolishness of man. I like Isaiah 33 you hear me say all the time and God will be the stability of your times, abundance, salvation, wisdom and knowledge, politicians, kings, generals, even spiritual leaders will fail us because of their humanity.
