On this Independence Day Gerad Hall offers a devotional teaching from his recent tours of Israel! Let's learn together how Josiah at Meggido teaches us a valuable lesson and warning about obeying God today! Even as we celebrate the freedom we have in Christ, Gerad points us to the choice we have before us today to walk in obedience and the consequences that can come when we rely on our past successes.
Who were the 118 signers of America’s founding documents? Who were the Founding Fathers and what did they believe, what was their motivation? How did they envision America? We are talking about it in this conversation with the Honorable Mark T. Boonstra. Judge Boonstra has researched the faith of all the signers and has assembled their words for you to read and discover the beliefs of those who founded our Nation. Be encouraged and challenged to hear the original intent of those who signed the Declaration of Independence on this 4th of July!
