A great discussion with Ken Harrison about his book "Rise of the Servant Kings, What the Bible says About Being a Man"
Ken is the president and chairman of Promise Keepers. In the book Ken expresses and tackles some of the challenges in today's culture that face men. As men we should be ambitious, we should be bold and we should be humble. As leaders in our communities, as fathers and husbands we are here to serve all those around us and surround ourselves with like minded men to help us in the running of this race.
The "how-to-get-it-right" book for today's Christian man--in marriage, family, work, friendships, with God in all of life.
Men are hungry for authenticity and for sound and bold biblical teaching on true masculinity. Every day men ask themselves questions about how to be better fathers, husbands, friends, and men, but it's difficult to find satisfying answers. Rise of the Servant Kings explains that true masculinity is found in absolute surrender to God, which always results in humble character and is expressed in courage and generosity. When a man truly understands God's desires, he will naturally express godly masculinity, Ken Harrison weaves together his experiences as a police officer in one of the deadliest areas of the country, with many years as a business executive and ministry leader, to share deep truths for men direct from God's Word.

On today’s podcast we discuss of what can lead to depression and most importantly, (using the example of Elijah in 1 Kings 19) what God will do for us to help us get out of the mental darkness. You need to hear this!

Today on Sparks of Revival with Tom Phillips Emily Adams shares how she ran into a Spark of Revival on her return trip home from the Northeast Decision Tour with Franklin Graham, where they saw almost 4000 people make decisions for Christ. Emily tells how she met an Uber Driver that was taking her home and how God is using him to reach others for Christ through his work as an Uber Driver. Sparks of Revival can show up those places that we would least expect them to. They are all around us everyday, if we will just keep our hearts ears and eyes open to what God may be doing right where you are today.
We would love for you to share about those "Sparks of Revival" you meet along your journey.
Please share this podcast with others and let us encourage one another.

David joins us On The Edge as we discuss the past of the late 1960's and 1970's as the Jesus Movement took place across America. David shares of his days as a teenager and what he saw what God was doing in the hearts of what most people would have viewed as Jesus Freaks or Jesus People.
David also shares with us what he and other ministry leaders are seeing today and the work that God is doing in the hearts and lives of what is called the 13/30 Window.
Please take the time to share and pray as Global Advance is being a crucial catalyst in this time and season to help lead this next generation.
David is sharing with the whole Body of Christ the following video, produced by Global Advance to be shared by youth leaders, church and ministries around the world to encourage the people of God.

Pop star Taylor Swift, with 102 million Instagram"Swiftie"followers, uses her influence in her
latest music video to mock Christians and make a case for the LGBTQ lifestyles. Showing gay
guys kissing and lesbians like Ellen DeGeneres and transgenders frolicking, she concludes by
asking everyone to support the Equality Act, called "The most serious threat to life and liberty
to ever be proposed by Congress" by Mat Staver, president of Liberty Counsel.
Donating megabucks, exploiting social media, utilizing her musical talents, the once-innocent
superstar is intentional in advocating for homosexuality. Should we Christians stay silent or
seize opportunities to connect with individuals drawn to this lifestyle?
A week ago I served with a team reaching out to over 100,000 people at the Bonnaroo music
festival. Final figures aren’t in but last year over 750 conversions took place and thousands
more had the seed of the gospel planted in their hearts. All this took place in an atmosphere
peppered with immodest dress, drugs and profanity.

The Voice of the Martyrs is a nonprofit, interdenominational Christian missions organization dedicated to serving our persecuted family worldwide through practical and spiritual assistance and leading other members of the body of Christ into fellowship with them. VOM was founded in 1967 by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was imprisoned for 14 years in Communist Romania for his faith in Christ; his wife, Sabina, was imprisoned for three years. In 1965 they were ransomed out of Romania, and soon thereafter they established the global network of missions of which VOM is a part. The Wurmbrands based these missions on Hebrews 13:3, which instructs us to “Remember the prisoners as if chained with them—those who are mistreated—since you yourselves are in the body also.”
ABOUT THE VOICE OF THE MARTYRS
The Voice of the Martyrs continues this mission around the world today through the following purposes:
- To encourage and empower Christians to fulfill the Great Commission in areas of the world where they are persecuted for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.
- To provide practical relief and spiritual support to the families of Christian martyrs.
- To equip persecuted Christians to love and win to Christ those who are opposed to the gospel in their part of the world.
- To undertake projects of encouragement, helping believers rebuild their lives and Christian witness in countries where they have formerly suffered oppression.
- To promote the fellowship of all believers by informing the world of the faith and courage of persecuted Christians, thereby inspiring believers to a deeper level of commitment to Christ and involvement in His Great Commission.
VOM’S MISSION STATEMENT
Serving persecuted Christians through practical and spiritual assistance and leading other members of the Body of Christ into fellowship with them.
VOM’S STATEMENT OF FAITH
- We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
- We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father where He intercedes for us, in His present rule as Head of the Church, and in His personal return in power and glory.
- We believe that all men and women are lost and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ is necessary for regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
- We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life.
- We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life in the presence of our Lord, and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment.
- We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church.
- We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to the ministry of evangelism.

As Christians we are often reminded that we should live for God, but rarely taught how to do it. Today I want us to look at what bearing godly fruit looks like in John 15.

Today’s technology and high definition sonograms reveal

How far have we fallen as a society when we deny these
realities and cavalierly exterminate developing babies?
The New York Times cleverly covers recent "heartbeat"

Tom meets a wonderful Spark of Revival in New Hampshire while preparing for the Decision America Northeast Tour.
Greg Winslow and a team from his ministry met at the arena days before the outreach, praying for America and that God would reach into the thousands of lives in attendance with the Gospel and see many come to Christ.
Greg shares his testimony and vision for what God has called him and his wife to for this time and season.
After graduating from Youth With A Mission (YWAM), Pastor Greg and Suzanne served faithfully in Mexico for over 25 years as Church planters, Senior Pastors, and intra church city and state wide organization.
The Lord began to deal with them concerning the great need the United States has for a move of the Spirit and moved their family back to New England in 2016. They serve as Connect Group Leaders, Prayer and Intercession Ministries to include New England wide prayer gatherings, and Mission and Evangelism training and outreach.

Franklin Graham states emphatically, “The only hope for
America is another spiritual awakening!” National
repentance and gospel proclamation brings
transformation but what’s essential is Christians
recapturing the vision for evangelism.
Luke 15 gives 3 parables revealing God’s heart for
reaching the lost. He gave his Son to die for everyone
and in our generation He is reigniting a passion for
reaching everyone - our families, friends and even
seemingly unreachable high profile personalities.
Watch this third installment in the interactive interview
with Daniel Kolenda, leader of Christ for all Nations
ministry and evangelist and cultural commentator, Larry
Tomczak. You’ll be inspired and equipped to believe for
family members and others whom God and you want to
see radically converted in these turbulent times!
At the conclusion, watch the supernatural power of God
touch the body of a crippled woman who is miraculously
healed before over 100,000 observers!
Jesus came to “seek and save the lost” and our privileged
assignment is to take the baton and finish the task. This
compelling video will help you immensely!
