If you’ve been listening to Crosstalk for some time, you’ve likely discovered that there’s been a significant uptick in the intensity of issues bombarding the world. It’s not just a single battle being waged, but an all-out war on numerous fronts. There’s the attack on biblical values, the demonizing of Christianity, the escalation of lawlessness, the emerging secular agenda, and the growing control of the populace. Some may see these things as accidental or isolated incidents that aren’t connected. However, they all share a common thread. It’s the promotion of globalism.
Each year, near Thanksgiving, we set aside a full broadcast to let listeners express their thanks to God. This is especially important today when our nation is in crisis like never before. The idea of America remembering God is nothing new. Abraham Lincoln laid down a proclamation for a national day of fasting in March of 1863. Here’s what he said that’s so pertinent to us in our day:
Many of us have gone through some kind of challenging experience at one time or another. It may have been a prolonged illness, perhaps you’ve lost a loved one, maybe you were rejected by your family because of your faith in Christ, or you may have failed to advance in your employment because of the biblical principles that govern your life.
This edition of Crosstalk recalled the account of Noah. God instructed him to build an ark. We know that only he, his wife, his 3 sons, and their wives went into the ark. In total, it was 8 individuals and 2 of each kind of animal. Soon God closed the door, the rains came and flooded the entire earth, the topography was completely changed, and judgment was meted out on a very wicked world.
Tomorrow citizens across America will cast votes in a very critical mid-term election.

As we get ever closer to the November election, one of the things on the minds of many is the topic of election integrity, the threat of voter fraud and the stealing of elections. There are matters taking place around the nation including court rulings that favor election integrity while others cast doubts on it. So can we vote with confidence in this upcoming election? Hopefully moving forward things will be better. Nonetheless, the guest on this edition of Crosstalk has studied the 2020 election and he discovered evidence of fraud, unconstitutional election law rigging, and other disturbing aspects that appeared designed to take things to a predetermined result.
Many times on Crosstalk we’ve described how children are being targeted in our secular culture. Included in that are those influences that are seeking to lure children away from biblical morality, questioning right vs. wrong or even trying to alienate children away from their parents. Then there’s the direct indoctrination into aberrant lifestyles with the intent of normalizing that which is abnormal.
At just over 8,000 square miles (a bit smaller than the state of New Jersey), Israel is a very small nation. So how and why would such a small nation impact the world in such a major way? Viewing that question from Scripture we see that they have impacted the world in the past. However, they’re also impacting the world in the present and will be doing so in the future as well.
