Ben Everson is an evangelist with Bible Revival Ministries.  Ben is also an accomplished songwriter, vocalist and author of the book, 'The Revival Nobody Wants.'

Ben began by describing what revival is and what it isn't.  Revival is not raw emotionalism.  It's also not a political movement.  Biblical revival has to do with God working in the heart of the believer in such a way that they are brought into a close relationship with Him.  That relationship is so close that it causes sin to be abhorrent to that individual.

Revival has first and foremost to do with God's people.  Ben noted that you can't revive (make alive again) that which has never been 'vived' in the first place.

Is getting a large number of people into churches an indication of revival?  Ben indicated that this is not necessarily true.  He described 3 levels to revival.  They include: 

Personal revival--We're as close to God as we want to be.  

Corporate revival--This involves people getting right with God.  Testimonies are shared with the church, the church becomes convicted and before long, the church is experiencing corporate revival.

Awakening—This is when the church is lit on fire, the community takes notice and 
people are brought to Christ.

Ben warned listeners not to confuse political action for the truth or with a walk with God.  In other words, it's possible to stand for all the right things externally but be far from God internally. 

How does the fire of revival get started in our own lives?  How should we interpret 2 Chronicles 7:14?  How does Ben describe the average state of the church in America?  How can parents be effectively involved so that younger generations will know the Lord?  Is there a correlation between music and revival? 

These and other questions are answered by Ben as he explained why revival starts in your house and not the White House.

This edition of Crosstalk began with Jim quoting Psalm 100:

'Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.  

Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.'

In respect to that psalm, the remainder of this broadcast was an opportunity for listeners to give thanks to our God, for who he is and the wonderful things he has done.

Earlier this month, citizens of Houston, Texas, went to the poles and strongly denounced the 'bathroom bill' that would open up their restrooms, locker rooms and shower facilities for people of different biological sexes.

Now there is a plan to make a nationwide bathroom bill that would impact businesses across America while superseding the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. It's called 'The Equality Act' but the guest on this Crosstalk called it the 'Criminalizing Christianity Act.'

Joining Jim to discuss this issue was Peter LaBarbera. Peter is the founder and president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality.

Jim began by making listeners aware of two bills that have been introduced in both the House and the Senate. One is Senate Bill S-1858 and the other is House Bill HR-3185. These pieces of legislation comprise what Peter described as ,' far the most radical piece of pro-homosexual, pro-transgender, transsexual legislation that's ever been introduced.'

What the 'Equality Act' does is to take the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 and it inserts sexual orientation and so-called gender identity into various provisions of the act and then expands the act. For example, it expands the definition of public accommodation. It would put the power of the federal government behind the 1964 Civil Rights Act and basically force businesses, including faith-based businesses to embrace the new homosexualism and transgenderism.

Jim quoted directly from page 15 of the bill where it says,'The term 'gender identity' means the gender related identity, appearance, mannerisms or other gender related characteristics of an individual regardless of the individual's designated sex at birth.'

The legislation takes into account the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's interpretation that sex discrimination includes sexual orientation and gender identity. Peter hopes this will be overturned with the next administration. Nonetheless, what the Equality Act would do is take the EEOC's interpretation and make it the law of the land.

Guest:  Shahram Hadian

Listen:  MP3 ​| Order

Shahram Hadian is a former Muslim who was born in Iran.  His family moved to the United States in 1978 to seek freedom.  While in the the U.S., Shahram found real freedom after he placed his trust in Jesus Christ as Savior.  He now leads a ministry that speaks the truth in love about the true goals of Islam and the threat of Shariah in America.

This broadcast featured Shahram as he gave a PowerPoint presentation at a Steeling the Mind Conference in September of this year on the topic, 'Islam's American Agenda.'

Drawing from accepted Islamic sources such as the Qur'an, the Sunnah (which includes the Hadith and the Surah) as well as the Shariah, Shahram looked at Islamic history and doctrine to point out that Islam's purpose is to refute Christianity.  In fact, Islamic teaching and doctrine also refutes the idea that Islam is tolerant and peaceful.  His warning proves that groups like ISIS are simply doing what their prophet Mohammed did.

He wrapped up by noting how repentance and turning to the one true God are the only way back.  This involves preaching the Gospel.  It's an offense but that's because it pierces the heart like it did to him.  The love and truth of Christ must be preached to Muslim refugees in order to change their hearts. ​

It's been calculated that 28% of Scripture was prophecy at the time it was written.  That's over one-fourth of the Bible.  This includes 1,800 prophecies in Scripture taking up over 8,300 verses including 1,239 prophecies in the Old Testament and 578 in the New Testament.  With so much Scripture devoted to the topic, don't you think God put it there for a reason?  Yet, we find the church sound asleep, oblivious to the fact that the bridegroom is coming for the bride.

Jeff Kinley is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and has previously served as a pastor.  He has a passion for sharing biblical truth.  He is the author of over 20 books including the book that was discussed on this Crosstalk, 'Wake the Bride' that is subtitled, 'Facing These Last Days with Your Eyes Wide Open'.  This is a guide to the book of Revelation written to arouse a sleeping church and motivate her toward early awaiting and preparing for his coming.

As a bride gets ready for her wedding, she spends months in preparation.  In other words, no bride would conceive of sleeping through wedding day or even being drowsy leading up to it.  However, that picture of drowsiness is what we see from the church in the book of Revelation and that's what we see today.

Jeff spoke about 2 Peter 3:1-13 where Peter notes that in the last days many will scoff at the idea of Christ returning for his bride.  This is happening today from people both outside as well as inside the church.  Some of the scoffing is due to over-speculation and the sensationalizing of the topic in order to manipulate the curiosity people may have surrounding the topic of Christ's return.  

What is the message of prophecy to the church today?  Jeff referred to the Old Testament prophecies that pointed to the first coming of Christ which was meant to give hearers a sense of security and hope.  He believes the prophecies that have yet to be fulfilled offer the same thing for people today as it strengthens our faith in Scripture.  

He also noted how prophecy gives us a 'heads up' on what's going to happen in the world.  This means as Christians we have the answers to the questions that many people have such as, 'Where's the world headed?'    

If you've had questions concerning the date of Christ's return, the next prophetic event to come, the concept of a rapture, a judgment for believers, judgments on earth, the antichrist or those who claim they've been to heaven, this program provides the answers along with answers to questions from Crosstalk listeners.
