Jerusalem: The Eternal, Undivided Capital of Israel!

January 19th, 2018

We are standing at a momentous time in history! Daresay, it is the fulfillment of End-Time Biblical prophecy. After nearly 2,000 years, The Jews are back in their land and they are sovereign over Jerusalem as their capital. Two things that the Bible says are End-Time indicators. HOWEVER, there is a great dispute over Jerusalem. President Trump's declaration of support for Jerusalem as Israel's eternal and undivided capital has released a firestorm among the nations of the world, causing them to take sides in the debate - for or against Israel (Can you say, "Sheep and Goats" kids? [Matthew 25:31-46]) Two friends of the Truth Barista - Steve and Cheryl Hauer from the Jerusalem-based, world-wide ministry Bridges For Peace ( join us for a 2-part series on how wildly awesome and important Jerusalem is and what it means to Christians and the world!


Discernment Ministries: Contending Without Being Contentious

September 24th, 2017

Discernment ministries. What are they? They are ministries that examine what is being taught across the Body of Christ to see if those teachers are faithful to God's word, or teach inaccurately or in error, or are outright deceptive. Discernment ministries are often looked at as the "defenders of the faith" and the "watchdogs of truth." However, some have developed a sharp and even vicious, un-Christian approach to their expose' function and are more pit bull than man's best friend.
While we should all be like the Bereans who "examined the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so" (Acts 17:10-11), there is a definite need and place for discernment ministries that examine and notify the Christian community of subtle and not-so-subtle deceptions and diversions from the truth of God's Word. And yet, how can they disagree with people without being disagreeable? Better yet, how do we deal with people who teach God's Word wrongly? How do we contend for the faith without becoming contentious? Listen as the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry toss this topic around!

August 25th, 2017

Is it the end of the world as we know it or as the internet calls it, TEOTWAWKI? Do a simple search on the internet and many Christian sites are proclaiming either the beginning of the Tribulation or the Rapture or other End Time mileposts because of remarkable events in the sky viewed as signs.

Take a listen as the Truth Barista unpacks the Feasts of the Lord, End Time events, and the "signs" of the times!

DOGS AND CATS, LIVING TOGETHER, MASS HSTERIA! In fact, during the recent "Great American Eclipse" MILLIONS of people drove to the line of total eclipse to watch a 2-minute event!

What makes them genuine signs from heaven's throne room? If they are, why does God use such signs and what is He saying? Are the sign-seekers just blowing smoke to raise money and followers? Join the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry as they take on this controversial subject of the signs of the times - Bible Sense About Signs.
