DAILY PRAYER REQUEST

Please pray for Easter services around the world this weekend. Some people only go to church on Easter and Christmas. Pray that the Lord will touch them this year with the reality of His presence. "He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay" (Matthew 28:6).

ON TODAY'S RADIO PROGRAM

SIGNS OF THE TIMES HEADLINES - PASSOVER & EASTER

And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God - Revelation 11:15-16

Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites…in proportion as they are more disposed to listen to the counsels of the wise and good, in preference to the flattery of knaves. Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters - Edmund Burke

STATEMENT ON PHIL ROBERTSON AND DUCK DYNASTY

Phil Robertson is the patriarch of the Robertson family, whose family’s show on A&E, Duck Dynasty, is the number one show on all of cable TV with 14 million viewers each week. The Robertson family not only runs a very successful private business, the family is well-known for their conservative Christian principles, ending every show with prayer.

While Mr. Robertson’s recent remarks on homosexuality were more graphic than what anyone at Southwest Radio Ministries would have expressed, he was supporting a biblical stand on this issue. God made it very clear in both the Old and New Testaments that homosexuality is a sin, it is immoral, and no one can be a homosexual and also have a personal relationship with the Lord.

We deplore A&E’s firing of Mr. Robertson and support the family in any future decisions they may make in regard to continuing their show at A&E. This is one more proof of the Christian cleansing that is going on in the United States, and that you are not allowed to express a biblical worldview without being ostracized and punished for that view.

Whether you lose your bakery, florist, or photography business or you are fired from a TV show for living out and publicly expressing your Christian faith, it is now illegal to be a Christian in the United States of America.
