The Restitution of All Things (August 12, 2017)
Jan Markell and Eric Barger talk to journalist Joseph Farah first about the news industry. His inside information insights are valuable as conservative news sites are compromised more each week and finding the truth is difficult. He predicted the downfall of Fox News which is in process. Then they discuss his book, The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christians, and the End of the Age. Find it in the Superstore at WND.com. They focus on the Millennium, a time of near earthly perfection. People long for things to be better as we watch how broken our world is, and they get their wish in the Millennium.

Must We Love Our Neighbors if They are Terrorists? (July 1, 2017)
Jan Markell and Eric Barger talk to author Leo Hohmann who says we are in WW3. The enemy, radical Islam, is awake and Americans are asleep. His book, Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration and Resettlement Jihad, reveals the transformation of U.S. cities. Yet hundreds of evangelical leaders have united to insist we increase, not decrease, immigration from terrorist enclaves. What lies behind this insanity since no one can share the gospel with these immigrants? Jan, Eric and Leo suggest it is just social justice run amok. Find the book in the Superstore at WND.com.

The Great Deceiver (June 3, 2017)
Jan Markell, Eric Barger
, and Jill Martin Rische talk the hour about the “great deceiver” who has a war against us. How do we disarm the powers of darkness - which is the title of Eric Barger’s new book? Christians are dressed for the ballroom and not the battlefield. Just how powerful is this roaring lion--Satan? It seems like all hell is breaking loose in the world and the church and we need our armor on. This war is nuclear. Find Eric Barger’s book, Disarming the Powers of Darkness: Fearless Conquerors in Spiritual Warfare, at www.ericbarger.com or call (214) 289-5244.

A Warning to the World (May 27, 2017)
Jan Markell and Eric Barger
feature British commentator Melanie Phillips who gives a warning to the world. Britain, and all of Europe, threw God out and made government and multi-culturalism their gods. Her book, Londonistan, is a warning that the free world should not make the same mistake. Londonistan is likely coming to your neighborhood. Phillips is Jewish and gives advice to President Trump on the “peace process” between Israel and her enemies. They consider France’s new President Macron and conclude he could be an apocalyptic player because of his plans for Europe. Learn more at www.melaniephillips.com.

The Muslim World in Prophecy (May 20, 2017)
Jan Markell and Eric Barger talk to Pastor Bill Randles about the Muslim world in prophecy. Islam makes headlines daily and is prominent as it concerns eschatology. Barack Obama opened this door with his June, 2009 speech in Cairo. Since then Islam-related prophetic events have been building and setting the stage for fulfillment. We recommend Randles’ book as a primer, A Sword Upon the Land: The Muslim World in Bible Prophecy, found at www.believersingrace.com.

Peace, Peace When There is No Peace (April 29, 2017)
Jan Markell, Eric Barger and White House correspondent Bill Koenig consider the aligning of the nations and final day activity breaking in the Trump Administration. Why could 2017 be so significant?

Hear an insider’s view from our nation’s capital.

Days of Deception (April 8, 2017)
Jan Markell, and her radio team look into end-time deception found even in healthcare and consider “New Age” medicine. They warn of some theologies behind certain practices that will be spiritually unhealthy. Jan, Eric, and Jill consider the practices that could be fooling Christians because the source behind them is ungodly. Amazon lists 43,000 kinds of “New Age” medical practices, books, DVDs, etc., most involving some kind of demonic influence. While the terms “holistic health” and “alternative medicine” can sometimes bring relief from illnesses, these practices can also be dangerous—and deadly—if in the wrong hands.

Burning Down The Shack (March 11, 2017)
Jan Markell, Eric Barger and Dr. James DeYoung discuss the phenomenon of “The Shack” book and film. Some laud it as an example of God’s love in action. Jan, Eric and Dr. DeYoung are more in agreement with DeYoung’s book, Burning Down the Shack, that “The Shack” should be seen for what it is: An illustration of Universal Reconciliation or Universalism. All humanity gets saved in the end! The disastrous way the Trinity is depicted will confuse millions. Yet pastors are recommending “The Shack” and handing the book out to church members. Some say it is better than the Bible. Find DeYoung's book Burning Down the Shack: How the Christian Best Seller is Deceiving Millions at www.wnd.com or Amazon.com.

Must We Love Our Neighbors if They Are Terrorists? (February 25, 2017)
Jan Markell and Eric Barger talk to Leo Hohmann who says we are in WW3. The enemy, radical Islam, is awake and Americans are asleep. His book, “Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration and Resettlement Jihad,” reveals the transformation of U.S. cities.

A Most Dangerous Time (February 18, 2017)

Kah feels this is the most dangerous time in America since the Civil War. Learn of the “spirituality” behind the globalist movement. It is not of God; rather it is out of the New Age and occult. Kah feels the globalists will instigate a crisis to get their plan back on track. We use the mobile app found at www.oneplace.com.

Humanism: Is This the One-World Religion? (February 4, 2017)
Jan Markell and Eric Barger spend two segments with Mike LeMay who warns of the dangers of humanism. Could this even be the one-world religion? When God is thrown out of nearly everything, the worship of man is the result. Today’s church is primarily interested in social justice, not the gospel. Hear a stunning clip from Bart Campolo that depicts the effects of liberalism in the church today. Learn more about LeMay’s new book, The Death of Christian Thought, at www.anekopress.com. Jan concludes with a short commentary on the plea people have to pastors to cover pertinent topics including eschatology. We use the mobile app found at www.oneplace.com.

Dominion Theology: Ignorance or Arrogance? (January 21, 2017)
Jan Markell and Eric Barger discuss “Dominion Theology” with Dr. Ron Rhodes. Dominionism says that the church can make the world perfect and only then can Christ return. Is this ignorance or arrogance? It is a counterfeit Kingdom of God and causes people to cling to the earth rather than hope for Heaven. Who are the leaders, many of whom state that Donald Trump is a sign that the world can be restored to perfection by the church? Find Rhodes’ outstanding apologetics’ books at www.ronrhodes.org. We use the mobile app found at www.oneplace.com.

When Will the Believing Be Leaving? (January 14, 2017)
Jan Markell and Eric Barger spend the hour with Pastor Billy Crone discussing the Rapture and Rapture timing. They refute those who put down the biblical pre-Tribulation Rapture and explain why. The Tribulation judges the pagan world and brings Israel to faith. There is confusion because today’s church is silent on these issues and because false teachers promote unbiblical arguments. Hear the mockers call the “blessed hope” the “blasted hope” and hear Crone’s response. We recommend his book and DVD products on this issue found at www.getalifemedia.com.

A Flood of Ark Evidence (December 17, 2016)
Jan Markell and Eric Barger open with a short commentary about the serious bullet America dodged November 8. An occultic cabal based on Aleister Crowley’s evil could have entered the White House but God prevented it. Will the church go back to sleep now? (Read more here) Then Jan and Eric talk to Ken Ham and Bodie Hodge about why Noah and the Ark still matter. The Ark is a type of the Rapture, and saved God’s remnant at the time. Why would a God who represents grace destroy every living thing? The “days of Noah” have returned as predicted by Jesus. We use the mobile app found at www.oneplace.com.

The One World System Is On Its Way (October 22, 2016)
Jan Markell and Eric Barger talk to Pastor Tom Hughes about the one world, “it takes a village” mindset the world now has. How does the U.S. loss of the Internet fit in? Is talk of a “shadow government” just conspiratorial? Hughes suggests America is the major player in the coming one world system otherwise known as the “new world order.” Learn who major players are and some of the agenda including U.N. Agenda 2030. All of this fits with the outline of things to come in the Bible. Jan, Jill and Eric close with a short warning that one of the most evil films ever made debuts this weekend (Ouija: Origin of Evil). Avoid it and warn others. We use the mobile app found at www.oneplace.com.

Jan Markell first talks with Dr. Dave Reagan about Brexit in prophecy. European instability is needed for the end-time scenario to play out. Then Eric Barger talks to Jan about his DVD presentation on Hillary Clinton’s spirituality. It isn’t her old-fashioned Methodism; rather, it is her New Age/occult involvement which includes talking to Eleanor Roosevelt and other practices. What implications does this have for America? Find his DVD, “New Age or Not: What Difference Does it Make?” at www.ericbarger.com.

What Can the Righteous do?  (October 8, 2016)
First our radio team of Jan Markell, Jill Martin Rische and Eric Barger looks at the “After School Satan Clubs.” This is another effort to purge America of anything Christian. What can you do if a club lands in your kids or grandkids’ elementary school? Then Anne Graham Lotz joins Jan to talk about the fact that the predicted “sea and waves roaring” has started. Record setting signs that God sends as warnings—including this weekend’s hurricane—are happening with frequency. Everything 2016 is “record breaking.” Anne is one of our conference speakers October 15. We use the mobile app found at www.oneplace.com.

Is There a Leader Who Can Stop the Chaos?  (October 1, 2016)
Jan Markell and Eric Barger talk to Amir Tsarfati from Israel. The world is clamoring for a leader who can stop the chaos that is mounting and spreading around the world. Amir considers some of the most important events in 2016 as they relate to eschatology. He reminds us God gave us Bible prophecy to prepare us, not to scare us. God has the future planned and the November election won’t determine the path going forward. Amir is one of our conference speakers October 15 in Minneapolis.

Jan Markell and co-host Eric Barger begin a two-part series with White House correspondent Bill Koenig. His new book is Revealed: Obama’s Legacy. Very few people fully understand the extensive consequences of President Obama’s two terms in office. Life as we know it in America will never be the same.

We use the mobile app found at www.oneplace.com.

Why Don't We Love His Appearing? (August 13, 2016)

"Pokémon Go" craze. People are being desensitized to all things occult as Satan prepares for the arrival of the Antichrist. There is both a good and a dark side to technology. Find Eric Barger’s book, Entertaining Spirits Unaware here. We use the mobile app found at www.oneplace.com.

The Days of Noah and Lot Re-Visited (June 11, 2016)

Some say the real agenda of the transgender promoters is to wipe out all morality. We are on a slippery slope as in the days of Noah. They also talk about the “convergence” of the signs of the times.

Diversity is Divine: The Coming One-World Religion (June 4, 2016)

Messiahs False and True (May 28, 2016)
Jan Markell's
first guest is author David Kupelian. The progressive gift to America is brokenness. He documents this in his book, The Snapping of the American Mind, and on air with Jan. Progressives, led by President Obama, are attacking the sanity of the country. Everything righteous people hold dear is under assault. What can we do? The Left insisted Obama was a “messiah.” Government must become a god. Then AFA President Tim Wildmon joins Jan and co-host, Eric Barger to report on his visit to Target Corp to give them over one million signatures of protest for their genderless bathroom policy—another gift from the godless Left. Learn of Target’s response. We use the mobile app found at www.oneplace.com.

When God’s Hand of Restraint is Lifted (May 21, 2016)
Jan Markell's
guest is Anne Graham Lotz who says she does not put her hope in a political party today. She does believe that Christians praying the Daniel Prayer could turn America around. God’s hand of restraint has been lifted from this nation but God relented when Daniel prayed this prayer in the Bible. Then why do so many Christians insist that the rocker Prince died a Christian? Eric Barger and Jill Martin Rische suggest that he only represented the “prince of darkness” and the Jehovah’s Witness cult. We use the mobile app found at www.oneplace.com.

The Making of Good Little Global Citizens (April 30, 2016)
Jan Markell
and Eric Barger spend the hour with David Fiorazo who exposes the real goal of the Common Core agenda: The making of good little global citizens.

Do We Have Time to Make America Great Again? (April 16, 2016)
Jan Markell talks to Pastor J.D. Farag about America in prophecy, the U.S. election campaign, and the cancellation of a replica of a demonic arch in New York City. The placing of the arch from the Temple of Ba’al would have coincided with the Satanic Beltane season. Why did the promoters backtrack?

When a Prophet is a False Prophet (January 2, 2016)
Because Seventh-Day Adventism is in the news, our hosts consider that belief system and ask if it is a cult? Ellen G. White, their leader, is clearly a false prophet. Does that mean that we shouldn’t vote for Dr. Ben Carson—who is an honorable and righteous man? And what’s wrong with annihilationism or the false doctrine that hell is not eternal? This is a part of Seventh-Day Adventist theology. Jan Markell, Eric Barger, and cult expert Jill Martin Rische consider these issues.

Should We Prep for the Coming Days of Chaos? (October 31, 2015)
Jan Markell and Eric Barger host Carl Gallups for the hour. They discuss the issue of “prepping” for the coming days of chaos. Is it Biblical? Is your church safe?

Hear Kah’s update on the intensified rush to a one-world system just since late-September. And the issue being used to force this is so-called “climate-change.” Kah asks why a religion-hating media loves Pope Francis?

Many Shall Come in My Name (October 3, 2015)

As Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is evil itself.” Then Jan Markell closes with a commentary about the mockers.

How is the President’s worldview destabilizing the entire world? She also spent time on our southern border in August and gives a troubling report.

(*Contact info for John Haller here.)

Hindson is one of our speakers at our fall conference in Minneapolis October 4.

Blood Moons: Harbingers or Hype? (June 21, 2014)
Jan Markell and co-host Eric Barger moderate a debate between blood moon proponent Pastor Mark Biltz and blood moon skeptic Dr. Mark Hitchcock. Biltz outlines his case for the importance of blood moons past, present, and future in his book “Blood Moons Rising: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs” found here. The tetrad of four blood moons on Jewish feast days such as Passover and Sukkot are rare and occur near significant dates for the Jewish people. Dr. Mark Hitchcock believes the blood moon references in the Bible are for the Tribulation and apply to Christ’s Second Coming. He is frank that he feels the blood moons of 2014 and 2015 are hype and sensationalism. His book, “Blood Moons Rising: Bible Prophecy, Israel, and the Four Blood Moons”, is found here. We encourage you to read and draw your own conclusion. This ministry believes all signs of Christ’s return, including the “signs in the Heavens,” are on overdrive, and we should pay attention.

Infiltration (April 19, 2014)
Jan Markell and co-host Eric Barger talk to Dr. Erwin Lutzer. Lutzer correctly points out that the Left and Islam are in sync as both seem committed to wiping out democracy and Christians.

The three discuss the incredible “infiltration” of the church and America by outfits like The Muslim Brotherhood. But is anybody listening? Find his book, “The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent” here.

In our last segment, Eric Barger gives reasons for faith and testifies to the boldness that comes only from "resurrection power."

It will also harm the spreading of the gospel.  It is a further set-up for the Antichrist kingdom. They close discussing the recent World Vision reversal on gay marriage.

They also discuss more recent efforts at spying including the intrusion and lawlessness of ObamaCare and the FCC attempt to monitor news outlets. Satan has orchestrated things so that the entire globe is in a crisis and this will speed global government. Soon, people will long for it as well as the "man with a plan," Antichrist. More and more, Christians are just seen as intolerant. The New World Order is about unity and we don't fit. The one-world religion is discussed. Gary believes Jerusalem will be the capital of that effort. Then Jan closes with a very short commentary on the "Christ at the Checkpoint" anti-Israel session March 10-14 in Bethlehem.

Then, Jan, Eric Barger, and Jill Martin Rische talk about the various evangelical outfits that have adopted a totally green agenda. This is the essence of end-time delusion.

But the take-away is how to live above the calamity of our times. Both Barger and Lutzer are speakers at our next conference "Understanding the Times Spring 2014."

This has consequences. What will America's role be in these forthcoming wars? They also discuss the blood moon cycle as it relates to Israel. Bill Salus' terrific book "Psalm 83" is available here.

Evolution: True Science Fiction (January 11, 2014)
In the first segment Jan Markell answers her critics. Then Ray Comfort joins Jan and Eric Barger to talk about the ravages of evolution today. Sound bytes of Ray's film, "Evolution vs. God", are played that are stunning. Evolutionists clearly illustrate that they cannot defend their "faith" and prove the theory to be true science fiction. As more people with a Godless agenda try to seize power everywhere, Comfort allows us to see that they are poor apologists and even worse "scientists." Yet this is the new "religion" of secular humanism. If there is no God, then any kind of depraved behavior can be excused as we came from pond scum. Get a view of why society is imploding. Buy the Comfort DVD for as little as $1 at www.livingwaters.com. You can view the DVD there as well.

Birth Pangs (December 28, 2013)
Jan Markell and her co-hosts, Eric Barger, Jill Martin Rische, and Executive Producer, Larry Kutzler review the major "birth pang" stories of 2013.

From Israel's isolation to the growing lawlessness, each day welcomed a new story that fit into things predicted in the Bible for the final days. From spying to the betrayal of Israel, it wasn't a good year but these things must happen to a final generation. We don't know we are that generation, but we could be.

Global Birth Pang Alert (October 5, 2013)
Jan Markell
and co-host Eric Barger quiz Rep. Michele Bachmann about the hastening "birth pang" activity that only accelerates daily. Who is funding the new mosque in your neighborhood or coming to your part of town? Bachmann has just met with several world leaders who cannot recognize America right now. Bachmann feels the baton of global leadership has been passed by America to the Mullahs, the Marxist world, and other dark forces. They also discuss the new national nightmare of ObamaCare and the massive invasion of privacy expected. But the focus is on the privilege of being a part of the challenges of this generation that could see Christ's return. The Bible says that "these things must happen" at the time just prior to His return. We are in a spiritual war and the King of kings will be the victor so this news is not a downer. Find more info at www.bachmann.house.gov. The panel concludes rejoicing that His day of return is at hand.

Mormonism: Saving America When it Hangs by a Thread (August 10, 2013)
Jan Markell
and her co-hosts Eric Barger and Jill Martin Rische discuss many angles of Mormonism. They are joined by former Mormon, Pastor Paul Sheldon. They tackle Glenn Beck's recent "Man in the Moon" extravaganza in Salt Lake City which was a combination of patriotism on display with Mormon trappings. At the heart of Mormon theology is the fact that Mormonism will some day save America when it's Constitution and the very existence of the country hangs by a thread. Sheldon gives his story of exiting Mormonism even though he taught at the lay seminary level. Mormonism is riding in on the coattails of high-profile men, something they have never had before. Beck is clearly their first Mormon televangelist, falsely claiming to be a sincere Bible believing Christian. Many items referred to on air can be found in Olive Tree's online category, "As Heard on the Radio" here.

Deliver Us From Evil (August 3, 2013)

The monstrous surveillance effort happening today is prepping the world for the Antichrist and the radio team discusses that. Then Jan and David Fiorazzo, author of "Eradicate: Blotting God Out in America," consider the Texas abortion battle with opponents crying "hail Satan" and "God is dead." These are dark times but "the light of the world" remains alive and well and we are His representatives. Find Fiorazzo's book here.

The New "Confused" Evangelicals (June 22, 2013)
Jan Markell
, Eric Barger, and Larry Kutzler all contribute to this program. In part one Eric Barger and Larry Kutzler look at the "new confused evangelicals." These new evangelicals are rejecting sound doctrine, eternity, and salvation in favor of social justice, environmental concerns, and earthly thinking. In reality, could it be this new movement is merely an update of the old liberalism that decimated the formerly evangelical mainline churches and seminaries over a century ago? Learn who some of the leaders are as Barger and Kutzler play many examples that illustrate how the new confused evangelicals are betraying their namesake -- and the Bible. Then, host Jan Markell offers a bold commentary on the outrages being perpetrated on Americans by her corrupt leadership today.

Islam: The Hammer of Judgment on America? (June 8, 2013)
Jan Markell
and co-host Eric Barger quiz former Muslim Brotherhood operative Walid Shoebat about a dozen topics including the love the Left has for Islam, the real reason behind the Benghazi disaster, Hillary Clinton's embarrassing testimony last January and the purpose of the mission there, and the strange Clinton/Abedin/Weiner relationship. Jan asks Walid if Barack Obama is perceived as a Muslim in the Islamic world. Walid then reveals the tie to Wahabbist Islam and the Obama family and the troubling associations of Obama's brother Malik. Obama glorifies his Islamic terror associations and heritage and denounces his Christian side and Shoebat explains why. Shoebat states that the church is being fooled by Islam and that Islam is infiltrating the church through devious means. The three discuss many of those efforts including "The Common Word", Chrislam, and more. Find Shoebat's book, "The Case for Islamophobia: Jihad by the Sword--America's Final Warning," here. Note: this ministry is not in complete eschatological agreement with Shoebat but his warnings concerning Islam must be taken seriously!

Apostasy's Results: The Scattering of the Sheep
Jan Markell
and Eric Barger discuss the continuing demise of evangelical Christianity (April 27-28, 2013). They alert listeners of another denomination biting the dust due to liberalism and Emergent philosophy. John Haller from the Columbus (Ohio) Bible Prophecy Conference also weighs in on the compromise of this denomination. Also discussed is Barger's recent experience at yet another Emergent-based conference, “Jesus and the Quran,” which promotes the notion that Allah is Jehovah and “Isa” (the Muslim Jesus) is actually Jesus Christ of the Bible. Then Eric updates a story we covered on last week’s "Understanding the Times" program (April 20, 2013) as he interviews Dr. Ron Crews of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty about the recent U.S. Army Reserve training that called evangelicals "religious extremists."

Jan Markell and Eric Barger co-host on 1/12/2013 "When Discernment Turns Ugly" Eric, Jan and their guests consider the dark side of discernment. Some of today's discerners are contentious and even mean-spirited. We wonder what the unbelieving world must think as they listen to the "new Pharisaical discerners" condemn just about everyone but themselves. Is this the way Jesus operated? While we must contend for the faith, can we not do so in Christian love? Weighing into this scenario are Dr. David Reagan and Mike LeMay. Dave Reagan makes a plea for grace, an item that seems to be missing among many of today's discerners. We ask if they are just lifting up themselves by tearing everyone else down?

On 1/15/2011 - TWO HOURS on Emergent, Contemplative and how its coming into the Church Jan Markell and Eric Barger challenge Christianity Today for their promotion of a bargain sale of products promoting lectio divina, contemplative prayer, "the silence," spiritual formation, walking the labyrinth, and more. These are practices the reformers died fighting 500 years ago. In particular, the Emergent Church is promoting all of these along with everything mystical. Mysticism has replaced doctrine and the leaders of this apostate movement say Jesus died to save the earth, not individuals. Yet evangelicals are climbing on board the mystical train and it's leading to a train wreck in the church. How can you spot this in your church? Who are the names to avoid?
