Book Review: “God’s Prophetic Voices to America” by Dr. David Reagan

Published by Lamb and Lion Ministries out of McKinney, Texas, “God’s Prophetic Voices to America” released its first edition in 2017. It is a book Written by the Senior Evangelist and founder of, Lamb and Lion Ministries - who is himself, one of America’s most significant prophetic voices.

The ministry has over 20 national and international outlets and a weekly television program called, Christ in Prophecy. Dr. Reagan, the writer of 15 books, is a well-traveled preacher, himself with a full itinerary in which he carries the message of the gospel and the soon return of the Lord Jesus Christ across the nation.

It is a book of 287 pages with a very intense introduction and history of the decline of our nation from the sexual revolution of the sixties to the present. Reagan has entitled the first section after the preface as “Prologue: America’s Spiritual Crisis.” It is a brief, but highly accurate history of our moral decline up to the present day.

The book is available through Lamb and Lion Ministries and in many outlets including Amazon.

While Dr. Reagan has chosen some of the people and ministers who have a high level of notoriety, he has acknowledged that there are tens of thousands of additional prophetic voices who are fully engaged in the full defense of the gospel and prophetic warnings. FULL POST

Victims at First Baptist Church in Texas, Not Just Murdered - They Were Martyred

Many Americans especially Christians are now struggling to wrap their minds around the horrific slaughter of worshipers from the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas.

While it cannot bring back a single soul, nor will it alleviate all the suffering of the wounded, this writer, at last was able to see this as something more than just another act of terrorism with the help of two people I know.

Former military chaplain Dr. Gordon James Klingenschmitt who hosts a website and full scale ministry called “Pray in Jesus Name,” (PIJN) interviewed Matt Barber, former associate dean of Liberty Law School and publisher of the “Barbwire” website in a video that sheds serious light on the shooting.

After all the reports of carnage, motives, the shooters background, community reactions, visits from leaders and the usual call by the democrats for more gun control comes a clear voice with an explanation that can help us to understand what this horrible tragedy really means. FULL POST

America’s Economic Collapse – Revisiting a Dire Prophecy

It may seem inappropriate or ill-timed to discuss the portent of an economic collapse in America while at the moment GDP and other signs of growth are beginning to recover. President Trump is spearheading the most important tax break in modern history and likewise he is ready to revamp the IRS to help us cope with a decade’s long fiscal decline and the spiraling of the national debt.

Not Trump’s Doing

The predicted collapse won’t come because of Donald Trump, but in spite of him. The many reasons for a fiscal fall and the timing of it may not be completely clear, but there is every reason to believe that it is on track for the near future.

Charles Hugh Smith of the ‘Daily Reckoning’ also says Mr. Trump will not be the reason for the fall. In a piece entitled “The Fading Scent of the American Dream” Smith says, “This dynamic has yet to fully play out, but it will. Whatever you think of Trump, his election isn’t the problem; it’s merely a symptom of much deeper forces that will sweep our corrupt and rotten-to-the-core status quo into the dustbin of history.” FULL POST

America: You Can’t Have Your Cake

You can’t have your cake and eat it too is an idiomatic proverb or figure of speech thought to have been used since the sixteenth century. It is the equivalent of saying, “you can’t have it both ways.”

Americans, it is said, are living in the most dumbed down generation in our history. College freshmen are reading at tenth grade high school level and knowledge of basic things like geography and history are an embarrassment to many from elementary to post grad school.

This may not be the time to expect that even common wisdom is enough for us to engage in to unravel the long list of daily social issues that produce a plethora of glaring contradictions, absurdities, non- sequiturs and incongruities.

In the simplest terms – Americans are not making sense any more. Let’s see.

The Atheists – Christian apolegetics is not needed to counter the arguments of the atheist. The idea that God does not exist only has merit if you are perfectly neutral about that belief. Logically, if you don’t believe in God you have a fifty percent chance of being right, but if you fight belief in God or God himself you have a one hundred percent chance of being a complete fool.

Modern Man – In a Word

Americans and most of the west are adrift in a turbulent sea of opinions and hyper-nonsense both culturally and politically. Progressivism has reached its zenith and has transmogrified into regression-ism, in a word it has become – pitiful.

Evolution has left behind the fact that the millions of remains of humans in transition have never been found and while intra species evolution or what the Bible calls, “after its kind” has been detected, inter species evolution is yet nowhere to be found. In a word the evolutionary model has become – ridiculous.

Hope of travel to the stars comes with star treky promises of worm holes, slip streams, quantum leaps and warp drives that propel us out among the stars at nine times the speed of light. In fact, man’s immorality and our ability to get on without warring have far outpaced our meager technology. The promised return of Christ and the judgment of God will be here long before man can set his foot on another single planet. In a word, interstellar space travel is no more than a complete – fantasy. FULL POST

Can’t Legislate Morality – But Perversion and Wickedness are Perfectly OK?

Articles have no attractive colors and themes like book covers, so there is only one chance to grab the attention. It usually means that the stinger comes first and the explanation is what follows. In this article, the title may be all that’s needed.

Splash, shock and intense verbally directed themes thrive, even in a world where political correctness feigns itself to be the edge.

The adage that says, we can’t legislate morality was first attributed to a Scotsman educator and sociologist R. M. MacIver (1882–1970).

In the 60s it was again used by both Sen. Barry Goldwater and civil rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

My former pastor, Dr. Richard Land often said that while we cannot, legislate morality we certainly have to pass a lot of legislation - to curb the effect of immorality.

This is a new day.

It is immorality that is now being legislated on many levels.

Healthcare is expensive but death is now free!

Abortion is on the decline in the nation which is why it is so hard to understand the passage of house bill 3391 in the state of Oregon (33-23). Democrats control the house and that is what made Republican state representative Jodi Hack declare that the vote was, “the saddest day I have experienced in the Oregon Legislature.” FULL POST

Does the Bible Speak of Terrorism? - Difficult Theology America Does Not Want to Face

Americans have a generally weak understanding of sound Biblical theology. This is evidenced in our academic curriculum, movie and media depictions of God, the church and ministers, and in the common wisdom of the day.

We have many books and teachings on the difficult subject of why bad things happen to good people, but we also generally reject the idea that bad things will happen to bad people. We talk of karma like it was a simple equation without any connection to a sovereign God who watches over the earth and intervenes in a scheduled and specific way.

Atheists don’t believe God exists - those that do - think he is like Santa Claus or a doting grandparent. Others think he is just too heavenly involved to be bothered with the affairs of men.

Both are mistaken, but even the most biblically grounded believers often mistake the reasons for the calamities that befall men as individuals and in communities, nations or globally.

That God allows troubles is generally understood, but that he calls for them in equal and direct proportion to our sinful disobedience is rejected more often than not. We want to believe that the lion has no teeth, but we continue to feel the deadly bite and our bewilderment and confusion is what follows. FULL POST

Hugh Hefner, September 27, 2017: The Hef Is Gone Whatever Shall We Do?

YouTube Prophets

David Meade who created all the hype about the end of the world on September 23, of this year has now decided that the date will now be more likely on October 15th of 2017.

There is little reason to attack or even discuss the error this man has made; the real question is why anyone has believed him to begin with.

People with a totally secular world view don’t know any better and the Christians who took Meade seriously should have known better.

This is why no matter who is making thee prophecies, Pope or YouTube prophet, we who trust in the scriptures - will not bite.

Our Lord has made it quite clear – date setting is absolute folly and it is forbidden.

“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” (Mt 24: 36)

The worst part of chasing the latest date for the second coming of Christ is that each time it fails the unbelievers are emboldened and pushed further into their own pathway to perdition. It becomes fuel for scoffers and naysayers. The secularists mock and the world are laughing at the very message that could bring them to the doors of life. FULL POST

Blood Moons, Eclipses, Disasters and September 23 – What do they all mean?

This year makes an even fifty years that I have been studying the subject of Biblical prophecy. I have watched as some of the best biblical expositors on this subject have arisen to help guide the believers and some of the worst as well.

It is with certainty I can say that most of the things in question here with the exception of the hype about September 23 and other astronomical occurrences are only what Jesus said they would be in Matthew’s gospel.

“All these are the beginning of sorrows.” (Mt 24: 8)

Disasters, famines, pestilence, earthquakes, wars and rumors of war are all part of legitimate warnings, but astronomical occurrences are a stretch into hyper-interpretation. FULL POST

Deep Perversions are Grieving the Spirit of God – What Might We Expect Next

This generation and specifically this nation has enjoyed God’s patience for the last forty or so years. No one with any knowledge of the scriptures and a personal faith in the Living God would dare to say that God is not grieved, or that he is not about to act.

The very first warning of the only unforgivable sin ever recorded in the Bible was preceded by the pronouncement of one of the worst perversions to emanate from the mind of man.

The Pharisees had just accused Jesus of casting out devils by the spirit of the prince of devils. While most people hone in on the Lord’s teaching about a house divided against itself; they rarely take into account the far more serious matter of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.

By saying that Christ used Satan to exorcise demons was to imply that the Holy Spirit was the devil. This is such a perverted concept that Christ was forced to warn them of the unforgivable sin. FULL POST
