“If you want to know the future you must know the Word of the Living God.”       Jim Bakker

In every moment, the events that Jesus spoke of are evident all around us.  In the vastness of this world, it is sometimes difficult to see the big picture of what is happening NOW!  We must keep our eyes and ears open.

Matthew 24:6-8 (MEV) You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled. For all these things must happen, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines, epidemics, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

NATION WILL RISE AGAINST NATION, KINGDOM AGAINST KINGDOM –FROM GLOBAL CONFLICT TRACKER –   Total of 25 conflicts in the world.  Below are listed most significant to U.S. and linked to the history of each conflict 

  • Critical impact on U.S. Interests

Civil War in Syria -Iran, Russia and Turkey’s deeper involvement- recent Chemical weapons attacks

THERE WILL BE FAMINE – Global report on Current hunger crisis – March 2018 report

Around 124 million people in 51 countries face Crisis food insecurity or worse

This is an increase of 11 million people – an 11 percent rise in the last year – in the number of food-insecure people needing urgent humanitarian action across the world.

Last year’s Global Report on Food Crises identified 108 million people in Crisis food security or worse across 48 countries. The rise in numbers are attributed to increasing instability and conflict as well as drought and very poor harvests. Some countries are suffering from economic conditions that contribute to the malnutrition of their people. The country of Venezuela is now suffering from  lack of food sources or money to purchase necessary food and medicine. Thousands are fleeing to neighboring countries to feed their families. 

Approx. 21,000 people die each day, one every four seconds, of malnutrition

Forty percent of preschool-age children who suffer from malnutrition are estimated to be anemic because of iron deficiency, and anemia causes 20 percent of all maternal deaths. In addition, it is estimated that 250 to 500 thousand children go blind from Vitamin A deficiency every year.

EPIDEMICS 

Germs with Unusual Antibiotic Resistance Widespread in U.S- (From CDC Press release April 3rd, 2018)Health departments working with CDC’s Antibiotic Resistance (AR) Lab Network found more than 220 instances of germs with “unusual” antibiotic resistance genes in the United States last year, according to a CDC Vital Signs report released today.

FLU – As of the end of February 2018 4,000 people a week in the U.S. were dying of Flu and Pneumonia according to U.S. Center for Disease Control

The levels of influenza-like illnesses being reported for the 2017-2018 flu season are as high as the peak of the swine flu epidemic in 2009, and exceed the last severe seasonal flu outbreak in 2003 when a new strain started circulating, said Anne Schuchat, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s acting director. Swine flu, which swept the globe in 2009 and 2010, sickened 60.8 million Americans, hospitalized 274,304 and killed 12,469, according to CDC data. Deaths from the current outbreak will likely far outstrip those of the 2009-2010 season.  It is April and the Flu season continues.

AIDS –AIDS is now second only to the Black Death as the largest epidemic in history. (From the World Health Organization) Aids or HIV was originated with non human primates (monkeys) in Central and West Africa

AIDS kills roughly 1.5 million people a year, or about one person every 20 seconds.

MALARIA  –Approximately a half million people die from malaria each year and many millions more are seriously weakened by it. Malaria is spread by mosquitoes.

CHOLERABetween 42,000 and 142,000 people die of cholera each year.  You can get cholera by eating or drinking contaminated water or food.

LASSA FEVER– Lassa fever, a viral hemorrhagic fever with symptoms similar to those of Ebola virus disease.  This disease is spread through contact with Rat feces and urine. Originated in West Africa. This year has generated more severe and fatal cases.  Usually an estimated 300,000 people are infected with the virus annually, with up to 5,000 deaths. But this year the fatality rate has gone to 50% of those infected.  

AND EARTHQUAKES IN VARIOUS PLACES

According to the USGS there have been 42 ‘significant earthquakes since January 1st, 2018. A significant earthquake is determined by a combination of magnitude, number of Did You Feel It responses, and PAGER alert level.  Those that have been counted are earthquakes above 4.2.  12 were in the U.S. The largest was a 7.9 in Alaska on 1-23-18.

227 people have died around the world.  For the last 365 days the total for all measurable earthquakes around the world has been 40,561.

Currently there are 33 erupting volcanoes and 55 that are having minor activity or have an impending warning issued.

Morningside welcomes Congresswoman Michele Bachmann to The Jim Bakker Show

Morningside welcomes Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann to The Jim Bakker Show

By Kami Klein

On Tuesday, December 12, at noon, The Jim Bakker Show will be taping a special interview with former Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.  Currently Michele serves as the Executive Director of Skyline United Nations, a U.N. ministry seeking to bring a biblical perspective to the U.N.  As a much needed  voice for evangelical Christians standing with Israel, Congresswoman Bachmann will have much to tell on the President’s recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and her observations on United Nations leaders.   

While speaking to the congregation of Skyline Church in San Diego California, Bachmann confirmed the challenges she will face as she attempts to shine God’s truth on the corruption now ingrained within this important international organization.  “We are taking this unbelievably audacious step of going to the U.N.,” Bachmann shared, “I don’t know of a darker, more deceived place on Earth than the U.N.

Because Bachmann admits she’s never had any love for the United Nations as an organization, she experienced a lot of soul searching and prayer before deciding to accept the position.  She has felt that policies that emanate from the global body, are mostly globalist and socialist in nature.

“Their goal has been from the very beginning the creation of a one-world order – not a one-world order under the umbrella of the Holy Spirit, but man’s attempt at a one-world order, that only brings about chaos, confusion, deception, delusion, pain. And that’s when, rather than cursing the darkness, Skyline Church is about to light a candle.”

We encourage you to be a part of this timely and informative interview with the former Congresswoman on Tuesday, December 12th at noon on Grace Street.  If you are unable to attend please be sure to watch when the show airs on your station or on Jimbakkershow.com/video/.  We hope to see you there!

Message from Pastor Jim Bakker “This is One of the Great Moments in Biblical History.”

Pastor Jim Bakker

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they that love thee shall prosper. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will say now, peace be within thee. For the sake of the House of the Lord our God I will seek thy good.

– Psalm 122

In a live message recorded shortly after the proclamation by President Donald Trump, recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, Pastor Jim Bakker spoke to Christians about this historic moment.  

“Our President has stood up for Israel.  He has stood up and fulfilled his promises.  The press has said that ‘The President has changed the course of history today.’ He knows the authority of the Bible”  

Please watch this compelling Christian view of this momentous and bold act by our President and what God says about Israel.  Please continue to keep both Israel and our President in your prayers!

Morningside Welcomes Kevin and Sam Sorbo, Writer, Director and Stars of “Let There Be Light”

Kevin and Sam Sorbo

By Kami Klein

On Tuesday, November 14th, The Jim Bakker Show will be hosting Kevin and Sam Sorbo on Grace Street. This talented couple will be promoting their new film, “Let There Be Light.” now in theaters. The movie is receiving rave reviews and is an amazing addition to Faith Based Movies that are now in high demand across the country..  

In “Let There Be Light” Kevin’s character, Dr. Sol Harkens, dedicates his life to the cause of atheism, after the tragedy of losing his son to cancer. As a best selling author and a celebrity debater, he has managed to parlay his attacks on Christianity into a very lucrative business.  He is not only anxious to share his disdain for God, but he also finds great joy and satisfaction in attacking his Christian opponents on the stage.  But even with all the fame and success, Sol is empty and distraught on the inside and his increasing reliance on alcohol to numb the pain is only making things worse.

When he has a devastating car accident Dr. Harkens undergoes a “near-death experience that brings every belief he had ever had into question.

With the support of his ex-wife Katy’s unwavering love and faith, and his own questions about what he may or may not have actually experienced, Sol struggles to find meaning and purpose in the words LET THERE BE LIGHT.

The movie was written by Sam Sorbo and stars not only herself but Kevin who directed the film and both of their sons, Braedon and Shane.  

Kevin Sorbo, has starred in dozens of movies throughout his career but is now best known for his role as Hercules throughout the late 1990’s and in the television series Andromeda. Recently he has dedicated his talents to Faith Based films that can be experienced by the entire family. He also starred in the movie “God’s Not Dead” which has been shown throughout the world.  

We are delighted that the Sorbos have been able to make time in their touring schedule for The Jim Bakker Show and hope you have a chance to make it to taping!  If you are unable to attend, please stay tuned for this remarkable show, which will be airing soon, as we discuss Hollywood and Christian values with this incredible couple!  

Taping will begin at 11 am on Grace Street at Morningside.  We hope to see you there!
