Kate Steinle was killed in what appeared to be a random act of violence last week. Her killer, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a 45-year-old illegal alien, had been deported five times to Mexico. Sanchez was being held by San Francisco authorities, but was released due to the city’s “sanctuary” law, which argues that illegals should not be kept in jail because it violates their constitutional rights. After his release, Sanchez shot Steinle in the chest as she was walking along Pier 14, a busy San Francisco tourist destination. On today’s program Stephen Flurry takes a look at the shooting in San Francisco and analyzes the dangerous policies that allowed this man to be set free.
Recent events in Egypt haven’t received much attention in the West. Many other world crises are unfolding that have taken the spotlight from Egypt. Last Wednesday, the Prime Minister said the nation was in a “state of war.” Unfolding today in Egypt are events that could have a huge prophetic impact on the Middle East. Join Trumpet columnist Brad MacDonald on today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show as he takes an in-depth look at events in Egypt today and explains the importance they play in Bible prophecy.
Greece is a first-world, politically advanced, progressive Western nation. Greek society is sophisticated and its culture is enlightened. Yet, Greece is collapsing – quickly, dramatically, and, painfully.
€25-30 billion has been withdrawn from Greek banks in the last three weeks. Greeks are withdrawing €3000 per second. Fuel is being rationed. How can this happen in the 21st century, to a progressive Western country like Greece? If it can happen to Greece, can it happen to other Western countries, like America or Britain? You need to pay attention to what’s happening in Greece and Europe, because what’s happening in this nation could and will happen to the U.S., Britain and others. It will affect you.
In 1986, God’s Church had become a worldwide work! There were 1,200 ministers serving in 725 congregations in 57 nations around the world. The Church had a weekly attendance of 120,000 people. There were 210,000 co-workers and donors who were contributing to the work. The World Tomorrow program could be viewed on 382 television stations. The Plain Truth magazine was produced in seven languages and had a worldwide circulation of 8.4 million. And yet, as far-reaching as God’s Work was in the days before he died, Herbert W. Armstrong said in his final co-worker letter that “The greatest work lies yet ahead.” On today’s program, Stephen Flurry looks back at what happened to the work Mr. Armstrong started and shows where that work is continuing today!
Events over the past few days provide further proof that we are not living in God’s world. In Tunisia, Saif Al-Deen Al Rezgui opened fire on beachgoers in the city of Sousse. He killed at least 38 people, 30 of which are believed to be British citizens, marking the worst attack on the British peoples since the 2005 bombings in London. In Kobani, Islamic State militants killed more than 200 civilians—including many women and children. Last week in Nigeria, two girls blew themselves up near a crowded mosque. About 30 people died in the attacks.
Recent attacks have put Western countries on high alert. And though many are scared, there are still people streaming into Syria to join the Islamic State. Why are all of these terrible things happening? What is the ultimate outcome? Listen to today’s show to hear what Bible prophecy has to say about the world’s condition leading up to the return of Jesus Christ.
America’s status as the world’s lone superpower is rapidly fading and other nations are now vying to fill the void. Vladimir Putin has invaded Ukraine and is now threatening to upgrade Russia’s nuclear arsenal. China has declared a cyber war against the United States. It has established a new international investment bank to challenge America’s economic supremacy. And it is also in the midst of a massive military buildup. Some Russian and Chinese media voices are now saying that war between the United States and China is not only possible—it’s inevitable!
Russia and China are rising fast on the world scene. Bible prophecy has a lot to say about the identity of these nations. Understanding the history and prophecy of these world powers is critical. On today’s program, presenter Stephen Flurry examines the latest headlines about Russia and China, and then digs into Bible prophecy to explain where it’s all leading.
