Put on your running shoes because we are going the distance this hour. We start with the headlines of the day and then turn our sites toward Hollywood and how we can pray for those whom God has called into the world of creative arts. We then do a flyover of several nations to discuss the plight of our Christian brothers and sisters in areas where persecution is the highest. When you are done running, get ready to start praying!!!
Are you ready for what is to come? Our guest this hour will present an in-depth look at the end times through Jesus' words in Scripture. He will answer any question you have on what happens when it all ends – and begins! Learn what the Lord said about the rapture, the tribulation period, his second coming, the judgment, the millennial kingdom, and more. Get your calls in early – this will be a great conversation!
