Show Notes

  • America’s national debt has soared over $20 trillion, and it’s only going up. Americans seem unconcerned, but there is plenty of evidence showing that it is actually a threat to national security.
  • Last week when America recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, many people said it would unleash a firestorm of Arab violence. But that didn’t happen—and it’s interesting to think about why, in light of the Bible’s prophecies.
  • If you’re like most people, you’re shortchanging yourself an hour or two of sleep every night! We’ll talk about the benefits of getting enough sleep and the effects of sleep deprivation, and give you some strategies for how to get enough sleep.
  • And I’ll conclude today’s program with a look at the unusual methods God can use to prepare someone for kingship.
