"Factor dot com or call 800 for relief to find out about this offer, feel the difference. Hey there folks, welcome back. You know, as you travel around the country or I should say as I travel around the country, I make Friends everywhere. And it's a wonderful thing when you go back to the same place, a number of times. You really do feel like family. One of those places is Murfreesboro, Tennessee, where I have spoken many times at world outreach church and gotten to know the pastor, Alan Jackson. So we're Friends. And I have already read the book that he's going to be talking about. I already gave him an endorsement for it because I love it. But I'm really happy to have him on as my guest right now, pastor Allen Jackson. Welcome. Well, thank you, Eric. It's good to be with you. I'll pretend we're just acquaintances because I want this to be a hard hitting journalistic interview. I'm going to ask you the tough questions. This book is titled big trouble ahead, a real plan for flourishing in a time of fear and deception. One of the reasons that I like you and I like the book is because you tell it like it is. We are in a situation in this country, unlike anything we've seen in our lifetimes without any question, and that's what you talk about. So tell my audience effectively, essentially, what do you what do you say in the book big trouble ahead? Well, big trouble ahead is really a play off the word tribulation, which is our biblical world. And tribulation just means big trouble. And I think there's a temptation amongst evangelicals, especially to leap ahead to think, is this the end of the world because we're walking through this turmoil. And rather than answer that question, I try to acknowledge that we're in this season of tremendous confusion and disruption in realignment. And what do we do to flourish in the midst of that? I think it started with the pandemic in 2020. And we were told if we'd go home for two weeks, we could flatten the curve and return to normal. They lied. And so now we're more than two years later. And the turmoil is escalating. It's not diminishing. We've survived the virus. Such as it was. But we have violence in our streets and lawlessness on our borders and more deception and propaganda and censorship. I mean, you know the list. And we can't just click our heels together and want to go back to 2019. We have to decide what we do in this environment to make a difference for the kingdom of God. And that's what the book is about. How do we flourish in this season? Well, you know, I have a book coming out in the fall. In fact, I think I was speaking at your church in September of the week it comes out called letter to the American church, which deals in a different way with the same thing. And it's this problem you just alluded to it, there are people whether they're politicians or pastors who seem to just want to click their heels and go back to 2019 as if most of our cherished values had not been viciously attacked. And we just want to ignore that and move on. That's the Christian thing to do. I would argue, and you argue, no, it's not the Christian thing to do. The Christian thing to do is to be honest about what we're facing. I mean, when you talk about propaganda, misinformation, we have never seen that in America. That is what, if you have any sense of history, if you're old enough, as we are, you just think, this is grotesque. We have never, ever seen anything like this in our lifetimes. We simply have not. We've grown up in a world where Jim Crow was defeated, whatever, we're just trying to get better and correct our wrongs. And then we hit this era where all of these, whether authority figures or institutions of authority, have not just failed, but have gone over to the dark side, have decided we're going to put out false information. We're going to manipulate people. We've never faced that in America. And if the church does not stand up against this, we're supposed to, we believe in the one who is truth. And if we're quiet, then I believe the lord will judge us and to some extent is already judging us because it is our job to speak up. I couldn't agree more. I think if we're quiet, we're like the German Christians that gathered in their churches and sang more loudly when the trains filled with the Jews passed by. But I think that there's good news in the midst of this because I don't think what we're watching just happened in 2020. I think we were asleep. I think the infrastructure was put in place. I think the ideologies have been flourishing in our schools and our universities. I've spent my life around academia and we're dishonest because you've spent enough time there. They were telling they were teaching this garbage in the university's decades ago. And for the most part, I was quiet because I wanted to earn the degree and I wanted the blessing and I wanted whatever came with that diploma. It's just now it's made it's all the way down to our elementary schools and they're teaching it to our most vulnerable children. And we were so distracted, we didn't know. And because of the pandemic and all that happened, it's like the alarm clock went off and we woke up and we weren't in Kansas anymore. And now the decision has to be made. Are we going to acknowledge that we've worshiped at the altar of comfort and convenience? Are we going to acknowledge the degree to which we've wandered off the path? I read the literature in the church for the last decade or so. We've spent more energy talking about how to make friends with the world than how to explain what righteousness and purity is to God's people. And we've got to come back and look at our fundamentals. It's not the first time in the history of the church. The Bible is filled with it in church history is filled with it. When we wander away from what center is, and now God and his mercy has awakened us. And will we have the courage to do the hard work of reasserting our faith saying our faith does belong in the schools. Our faith does belong in the corporate board room. It's much easier to say, well, we just want an election to fix it. We want a politician to fix it, or a political party to fix it. It's not the job of the politicians. This is the church's job. And I don't mean when we gather on Sunday to sing a song and endure a sermon. I mean, those of us that imagine ourselves to be citizens of the kingdom of God, have to take the values of that kingdom and live them out in our neighborhoods on the ball fields and the corporate settings and the hospitals and the courtrooms..

"Today. So we need to get this right. We'll be right back talking to pastor Allen Jackson, the brand new book is out. We'll be right back. Snow. Seems. And I believe. Welcome back. We're talking to the author of a brand new book, big trouble ahead. Big trouble ahead, a real plan for flourishing in a time of fear and deception. Pastor Alan Jackson author of big trouble ahead. I think part of what you say in this book has to do with the idea that things are so bad that many people are turning to God. They're realizing there's no natural solution. There's no human solution. There's no political solution. We have to turn to God because it's too much for us to bear. We need to know that there is a God who cares. Absolutely, there is. We have tragedy fatigue. It seems like every day there's another shooting someplace or expression of violence or we see pictures of thousands of more people pouring across our border. Whatever it is and we're exhausted with it, to the point that people want to withdraw and it's creating depression and defeat and discouragement, church participation is lower than it's ever been. And there's such an opportunity in that to tell the story of scripture. Jesus didn't come to lead a political movement. He came to launch a spiritual initiative to set humanity free from the bondage to darkness. And that is the heart of the church's story. It's not whether we're methodist or Presbyterian or Roman Catholic or Greek Orthodox. Our story is centered in the redemptive work of Jesus. And that stretches across time and culture. It's not new to the 21st century. We have just lived such blessed lives. We've had such a fluence. So much freedom, so much opportunity that those things now that they're being threatened and disrupted, well, it has to be the end of the world. Well, that's a pretty awkward message if you're talking to a Ukrainian believer these days. Or if you have the opportunity to know somebody that lived in Rwanda in the 90s, when a million people in a hundred days were slaughtered, most of them with machetes, I'm pretty sure that felt like the end of the world, if you were living there. Sudan and their extensive Civil War two and a half million people have lost their lives. They're here crisis all over the world. We've just led pretty protected lives. And so we've had this rather cosmetic faith and God in his mercy has awakened us from that slumber so that we can actually invest ourselves in the eternal purposes of his kingdom. I don't even see it as punishment. I think it's a gift. He's asking us to mature and to grow up to learn to stand up. He's asking us to use spiritual muscles. We haven't used in decades to be honest. And that's uncomfortable. It's awkward. We're a little sore spiritually. We're looking at one another trying to decide if this is the right way to do this. And it is. Find a place where they're telling you the truth. Find those outlets, stop listening to the latest conspiracy theory and start listening to the spirit of God. We don't need another seminar debating whether the Holy Spirit exists or not. We need to know how to cooperate with him, recognize his prompting and yield his authority in our lives. We can make a difference in this world. That's what our story is. It's exciting. Well, it is exciting, and it really is, it's remarkable how we have been so blessed that many of us have fallen asleep or it's just what happens. It's human nature. It's terrible. But I think God in his mercy is waking us up and saying that I'm going to put you in circumstances that you're going to have to turn to me. And that's extraordinary. I really do think that there are many people that they wouldn't have considered themselves Christians or anything, but they see such things that are so difficult to process, confusion, all these authorities that we've accepted for decades breaking down that the places that gave us the news, the world of medicine. None of us would have dreamt that those places that our own government would could be the enemy would be suspect would have people that are so afraid of losing their own jobs that they'll say anything, they'll lie, they'll twist the truth. We really grew up in a world where there were standards, but those standards have eroded and we're now at this point. So I think it is painful for many of us in a sense to acknowledge it. But as we're acknowledging it, the good side is that God is there to say, well, I was always here. And I'm here now. And I just want to say to anybody listening, folks, God is here for you for you, whatever you are going through. Maybe you have a child in the hospital, a parent in the hospital, maybe you are dealing with things that you don't want to talk about so much, but God knows what you're going through, and he is there to reach out to you. And I see this just as an opportunity, Alan really, for the church to step up and say, God has always been here. He has the answers. He loves you. He wants to welcome you in to the family of faith and to use you for his purposes. And my favorite things in scripture, Romans 8 28, all things work together for good for those that love the lord and are called according to his purposes. The idea that no matter what the devil throws at us, that God says, well, if you love me in a call according to my purposes, I will flip that and I will use it to bless you to use you. You can't even imagine what I can do because he's God and we're not. So I find myself being very hopeful. Absolutely. I could not agree with you more. It's not a time for despair. In fact, if you will listen, just a little bit to the people around you. There are people that you interact with almost every day I suspect that will give you a little window into what they're struggling with. And there's an opportunity in that moment. You don't have to share even your favorite scripture or your favorite sermon or your favorite author or God forbid, even your favorite book, you could just say, let's pray that in a sentence, you can offer a prayer God help my friend, they're overwhelmed, give them strength. Amen. And don't wait for affirmation. Just move on. Let's start to act like salt and light. God is doing something. And he's enabled us to be a part of it. And I can't tell you, that brings such energy to me. In such a sense of anticipation, I don't know what the outcome will be because I can't tell yet how the gods people are going to respond. If we will humble ourselves and stand together and stand up, I think we will see God respond in mercy. I think if we avoid the truth and avoid the reality that he's showing us, we could have a very different outcome. And I don't think that's been determined yet. But it's an exciting time to me. Start to listen to the people around you and use your voice. You don't have to have a big platform if you'll treat the platform God's given you is if it were significant..

"It's the right thing to do folks I'm talking to my friend pastor Allen Jackson of world outreach church in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, where I've had the privilege to be many times. I know I'll be there in mid September. He has a new book out brand new called big trouble ahead, a real plan for flourishing in a time of fear and deception. I think the madness that we're experiencing. And there's no other word for it. I mean, it's absolute madness in every direction, it is a spiritual battle, it is a satanic war on truth and we're seeing it in every way. But the good news is the lord is allowing it to wake up a holy remnant. And to not just wake up a holy remnant, but to find people who didn't have faith who now see things are so crazy, there has to be an answer. Is there a God? Where do I turn? And they're seeing Christians like you, call things as they are. And they're saying, that's right. I wouldn't have I wouldn't have said so before, but I see it now. The craziness makes me want to know, is there a standard of truth? And ultimately, that's the answer and in your book, big trouble ahead, you talk about that. Well, it seems to me that evil will always overplay its hand. You can observe that in nature a disease process will destroy its host. An evil will destroy what it touches. And we're watching that. It's come to the point of the absurd. And in that, there's an opportunity to stand up and then to begin to align ourselves with the truth. How did we arrive at a place where we're unwilling and public to define what a woman is, when we're electing people to some of the most are selecting people for some of the most powerful offices in the land. We didn't get there in a week or a month. I think we got there by winking at immorality long ago. We said fornication really wasn't a problem. And we took all sorts of we took down the sexual boundaries that God gave us. So now we find ourselves standing in a place where we can't even define a man and a woman. Again, I grew up in a barn in Tennessee. This is not complex. There's no confusion in the amongst the chickens about this. Surely we humans can figure this out. If we have the courage and the will to tell the truth. But to do that, we've got to come back to the fact and acknowledge there is objective truth. That I'm not the measure of all things. And my experience is not the defining of all things life. I have to smile the new telescope, the web telescope that's been deployed 30 years in the making $10 billion. Seeing the farthest reaches of the galaxy that we've ever seen, reminding us that there's a creator. Being deployed right in the midst of this cultural war, when they say we can't figure out what a man and a woman isn't God said, well, let me show you the reaches of the universe. Maybe we should say got created the heavens in the earth. Just maybe we should submit to the authority of the omniscient omnipotent creator. Just maybe that would make life better. The church has an exciting.

"Tell me Eric, why is relief factor so successful at lowering or eliminating pain? I'm often asked that question, the owners of relief factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right, designed to heal, and I agree with them. So the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients, each helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of the four ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway. And that right there approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. So if you've got back pain, shoulder neck hip knee or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only 1995 to see if it will work for you. It works for me.

People write things to us. And we don't get to read. We read every single one of them, but we don't get to read them aloud on the year, except right now I'm going to read one aloud. This was so sweet. The subject line, this is a Debbie from Kuna Idaho, Debbie. Yes, from Kuna Idaho. She says the subject line of her email is Johns merak and Eric. And she writes Eric, you and John are the best. Your interviews with John are motivating and a true blessing to me because of you. I read the stream every day and send support to the stream too. Now the stream the stream is stream dot org, John's writes an essay a day every Monday through Friday for stream dot org. His stuff is so magnificent and he is so magnificent that we're privileged to have him on this program once a week. But when we get letters like this, we appreciate it. This lovely woman a Debbie from Kuna Idaho continues. She says, because of you, Eric, I purchased nutrimetics products, smart move because they are great products, new traumatic dot com ex dot com. You just go Derek. And she says, and I have bought this hilarious. I bought way too many pillows sheets tells, et cetera from Mike lindell used to code Eric and she purchased in red four of your books and I'm so thankful for your dedication to truth and our lord Jesus praying for you that God continues to lead you in truth, our lord reigns. Listen, that's great. Folks. It is such an encouragement to us to get notes like this. I want to thank Debbie specifically, but I want to say thanks to all of you who write to us. The encouragement means a lot. As you know, we're going through a crazy season in America and we've never been through anything like this before. You have, one thing that is happening right now in America, which is healthy, is people have learned to distrust most of the people who put themselves out as authorities. So when a governmental leader speaks the governor speaks, people have been forced to think for themselves because most of these leaders are, I always want to think of the intellectual word, bums. They're bums. They do not represent the people who elected them. They do not seem to understand the constitution. They are horrible leaders, but the good news is that Americans are waking up to this. And by the grace of God, they're going to make their feelings known at the poll the next time they go to the polls, they can make their feelings known similarly medical professionals. We start to see that this is the old case, like the boy who cried wolf. If you lie a couple of times, or if you're caught shading the truth, you lose credibility. And then the next time you speak and say, you must get the vaccine, people are going to say, I don't think so. I'm not going to listen to you. You're the one that told me cigarettes were good for my health in 1950 because I have the old magazines. Listen, we're going to start thinking for ourselves. That's healthy. Now, we're not talking about sheer individualism that hey, everybody's got their own truth. No, clearly, the idea that you're supposed to question authority. That's a good idea. It doesn't mean you question authority endlessly or you question the concept of authority. If somebody speaks with authority and is speaking the truth and you can trust them, that's a good thing. But a lot of these folks have undermined themselves and the institutions for which they speak. And I'm telling you, Americans are onto it. And this is going on all across Europe as well. This is healthy. This leads to actual democracy, actual self government and freedom. So let's see. And speaking of freedom, if we can talk about this, this is the last day and over the weekend to donate to CSI Christian solidarity international. If you want to free a slave for $250, do it. This is the weekend to do it. Don't forget, do something, give something, $20, $50. Talk about a great segue. Folks, this is it. This is the last exit before the toll.
