This may be your favorite Powercast podcast ever. It caused Daniel toward the end to exclaim, “Phew, Michael you’re on fire!”
These incredible 78 minutes commence with Daniel describing his weekend driving NASCAR and the irony of his dad’s “bucket list” item. We hear: why Michael detests monarchies but couldn’t keep his eyes off the coverage of the Queen’s
noun: criticism; plural noun: criticisms
- The expression of disapproval of someone or something based on perceived faults or mistakes. “He received a lot of criticism”.
- The analysis and judgment of the merits and faults of a literary or artistic
work. “Alternative methods of criticism supported by well-developed
There are two types of criticism above. The Gospel Revolution eschews the first one. The latter? For us, it’s a “daily practice”.
Michael and Daniel begin this Powercast articulating
Islam teaches “Jesus”. You can do anything with “Jesus”. You can make him a personal Lord and Savior, which is nowhere in the Bible. We know his name wasn’t even “Jesus”. His name in Hebrew was actually Yeshua, Joshua in English. Then if you apply our vernacular, we could more accurately call him Josh, “The Lord Josh”! That would be more precise
“Society’s go through these frequent rotations in and out of hysteria, where all reason seems to have gone out the door. We appear to be in one of those times now.”
Thus, begins this Powercast as they boys hit the ground running. Michael uses his recent viewing of a program about the Salem Witch Trials as a launching off point and agrees that back-in-that-day he would have been
“Even atheists would have to admit it. The progress of the human race since the Cross is undeniable,” concludes Michael Lilborn Williams in the midst of a podcast which he himself describes as “a masterpiece”.
It all begins with Daniel wishing Michael a happy 70th birthday week, the birthday boy talking about the impact on him surpassing his parents’ ages, his weight lifting goals. his and Daniel’s experiences with Amazon Smile benefiting the GR and the current Pledge Drive.
Then our dynamic duo dive head-first (emphasis on “head”) into what happens by removing the power of eliminating “sin consciousness”. We learn the only way to get rid of “sin consciousness” is to know sin has been done away with, the only way sin was done away with forever for everyone, and that it was through the blood of Christ. Daniel wonders out loud, “Is it a sin”? Michael reiterates, “We still really don’t understand sin. The over-abundance of grace has way out-paced sin. But if we don’t understand sin, we cannot ever fully understand grace. If you have guilt and shame, you have no ability to truly take responsibility for your life”.
We hear of Daniel’s dad’s “testimony”, about self-projection, why you can’t be arbitrary about God’s covenants, how Abraham’s covenant was good but now is foolish, the one word for promise AND promises, why there are over 45,000 different Christian denominations, and how key it is to embrace the spirit who came through Christ alone.
A listener facing a major family challenge asks. “Who the hell do you think you are, Mike Williams, taking away all the promises of God?” MLW responds.
“Faith is not part of my life. I have NO hope…. I have one two-pronged purpose in life…If you can embrace the abundance and gift, you will reign in life”.
What is his purpose and what does it mean to reign in life? Listen to this Powercast and you will know!
Regardless, this week’s Powercast is right in line with the magnificent information that has been our pleasure to deliver, hear and receive this year AND for decades past!
It all commenced with the fellas laughing about their lack of sports knowledge, Daniel explaining why he calls his home “The Frozen Tundra”, why Michael sometimes doesn’t want people to know what he does, and what saves him. The shows ends with MLW uncovering why his home is called “The Secret City”, “Because we didn’t anyone to know we were about to drop a bomb on them”!
In between, the guys drop a “Gospel Bomb” on ours brains.They dig in on Part II of answering Vic d’Obrenen’s request to do a verse-by-verse study of Galatians Chapter Three. Among the highlights are:
- Why the Story Cannot be Underestimated
- Why Some are Undermining the Story
- Why if You Don’t Believe Moses, You Can’t Believe Jesus
- How Some have “Demolished” the Cross
- What Specifically were the Galatians Foolish and Bewitched About
- Why “You’re not taking out my condemnation!”
- Daniel’s first
Abraham Lincoln is the subject of Walt Whitman’s metaphorical poem “O Captain, My Captain”. It’s famously featured in 1989’s “Dead Poet Society” starring the late, great, perfect, and righteous Robin Williams. It also is the topic which launches this remarkable Powercast.
We learn: why Daniel was crying his eyes out in front
Michael and Daniel come out primed and ready to go for this week’s Powercast.
“Bible interpretation is quite simple when you understand the Gospel,” said Daniel. “Respect context and allow Peter, James, John, Apollos, Paul, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John to speak for and represent themselves. Then see how what they teach lines up with what’s in the Hebrew Scriptures!”
“Yes, I yelled at the Holy Ghost to teach us and (the information) came at us like an avalanche, chortled Michael. “There is a way to continue learning and 100 exits to depart from truth. But ALL of them undermine Moses, the Hebrew Scriptures, and the Blood of Christ.
As promised, we regather at Hebrews Chapter 11, but not before seeing Hebrews 10 contextually regarding those opposed to the Law and the Blood of Christ.
Michael starts the study of Hebrews 11 by asking the question from Micah 7, “How did God show mercy to Abraham”?
Then he declares, “I was wrong!” You’ll surely enjoy and benefit from his corrected understanding which includes how God actually did show mercy to Abraham
These 74 minutes are likely to change your life forever.
This absolutely splendid Powercast commences with Daniel thanking our Captain and the entire Gospel Revolution for saving his life. Then the guys discuss their gratefulness about the impact of the Gospel and how it allows one to “negotiate with the ‘proper’ person”.
We learn why Michael thinks he may have been a Puritan at the founding of the New World. Discover why he strongly suggests certain people should, “Stop using the damn Bible…Jesus did not die just because he wanted to show he loves us, That’s pathetic! Hallmark Cards can do a better job than that…We know one thing. You have been offended by the Hebrew Scriptures. We do not develop truth to accommodate our conscious being offended…You’re bastardizing the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament!”
Another “mystic myth” is busted as we do a verse-by-verse contextual study of Hebrews Chapter 9.
Want mental stability?
Know others who do?
Please listen and share!
Daniel responds jokingly, “Don’t pull me into your sin!” LOL!
Early on in this fantastic 60 minutes, Michael rehearses the fact that two of the board members of Mike Williams Ministries, Daniel and Vice President Nardos Kebede, were heavily influenced by Global Grace Seminary and Don Keathley Ministries and influential in their journey “home” to the Gospel Revolution.
Some of that process is revealed to which we must reply, “Thanks Don Keathley and Global Grace!”
Not only is reading in context emphasized anew, but Daniel reminds us that once you start staying in context, you easily begin identifying those who are not, They just are looking for a verse here and a verse there to confirm their bias. “Don Keathley, you have made an absolute fool of yourself!”
“If you have decided you’re not going to change your mind, there is no reason to listen to us at all,” says Michael. Daniel tells of his experience listening to Don Keathly over the past few years, especially a recent message he listened to on “Why Did Jesus Have To Die” (The guys talk about this teaching in detail. Normally, we would share a link to the video teaching but it is not publicly available right now).
While listening to this teaching Daniel gets intrigued by a verse Don Keathley shared regarding sacrifices and offerings out of the Book of Jeremiah. The fellas go through a contextual study of the verse and find that the meaning is VERY different, in fact the opposite of what Don Keathley taught. Frankly, it is quite alarming!
Along the way, we get more context about the actual place translated as “hell” in the so called gospels and the teachings of Christ (the Valley of Hinnom).
Once again, the Hebrew Scriptures shine, as Michael cautions the disrespect of them can lead to negative attitudes toward Jewish people and Antisemitism. The illogical approach of quoting the Scriptures to discredit them is pointed out. Just because someone keeps repeating “the Temple of the Lord” or “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus”, or “Abba, Abba, Abba,” does not mean you are accurately portraying who or what you are talking about!
This fascinating show is sure to renew your mind and cleanse your soul.
PLEASE ENJOY AND SHARE!
Three adjectives describing this incredibly beneficial podcast. It is shows like this one why the program is called “The Powercast”.
The guys open up discussing the pseudo graphical writings which were likely added to Paul’s, Apollos’, and even Peter’s work, and what the purposes of them might have been.
“You have to know the Gospel in order to be able to identify the pseudo graphical additions in the New Testament writings,” says Michael. Then Daniel points out what are the indications that they have been added and asks, “How can we trust anything in the New Testament writings?” Then definitively answers, “We have the Hebrew Scriptures! We (are) just like the Bereans, We go back to the Hebrew Scriptures…even to see if what Jesus said lines- up with the Hebrew Scriptures!”
We may change our minds, but the truth never changes!
“If your ‘prize’ is to be ‘right’, you’re not going to like the Gospel,” exerts Michael. Daniel adds, “The Gospel will prove you wrong, but at the same time will also prove you always right-e-ous”. We learn how Abraham Lincoln likely pronounced “righteous”.
Our discussion on the mystery continues by first reviewing a passage discussed last week on adoption. We learn exactly what the adoption as the Sons of God means. We are reminded about how Don Beres Bartlett described it as, “We are God in the Earth”
Daniel challenges one of Don Keathly’s teaching on being alienated and enemies in your mind. We look, in a classical GR way, at the context of this verse which happens to fall in line with our study on the mystery.
We are aliens no more!
“The will of God has has already been done, and you’re trying to exercise your will to be what you already are? … Congratulations! You just judged God as unrighteous”!
Ready to be challenged? Listen and have your mind delivered to a higher level of understanding about this wonderful information!
Michael gives his take on his individual experience and treatment for seasonal allergies. Plus, amazing insight into some of Albert Einstein’s comments and the theory of the Speed of Light.
“If speed travels, then time can be determined into the trillions of years. If light does not travel, it changes everything. If light travels, it supports evolution. If light is constant (from ‘let there be light’), it supports creation. The one thing I do know is the ‘speed of light’ has never been measured before.”
Of course, as always, every topic that is broached here is done from the perspective of the Gospel – the Good News – including:
- What does it mean that the Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth?
- Michael’s Teaching on Five Mysteries: Sin, Marriage, Faith, Change,
- The impact of abandoning the Hebrew Scriptures.
- The Book of Ephesians’ Mystery.
- God’s use of time in accomplishing his plan.
- The importance of embracing the Blood of Christ.
- How God would be mean and a liar if everything was complete in Adam.
GET READY TO ENJOY AND GET SAVED!
“Yes, the Gospel Revolution enjoys a multiplicity of expressions of God in the Earth” affirms Michael.
And so begins another excursion and pursuit of THE truth.
We understand, of course, WE ALL are THE truth; that it is contained within all of our hearts. However, as we have been learning in the Bonus Room Study (like the video below), we do well to aggressively receive (or “lambano”) the truth of God’s grace and righteousness. This is what Paul strongly encouraged, because it is to the life-saving benefit of our souls.
The Gospel is nourishment for our brains. And that, our friends, is what this (and every) Powercast is all about.
The guys continue our journey down the path about the Mystery which was hidden until EVERYTHING changed.
We discover: some people were privy to the mystery before it was fully unveiled in Christ, that humanity’s suffering and torture by God as told in the Hebrew Scriptures (including Christ’s himself) was for a very brief period but for the ultimate purpose, and that we are NOT part of the plan but we ARE living in the result of the plan! Good News? Amazing News!
This was the news that prior to Christ’s manifestation only a few were privy to. Now, tragically, Christianity and Mysticism are making the Cross to no effect and are proud of it! This is outrageous and potentially deadly. “Because they don’t follow the mystery all the way through, they’re still dealing with ‘sin’, the second coming, manifestation of the sons of God, and they’re still trying to change when God already changed EVERYTHING!” exclaims Michael.
God’s blueprint and sovereign involvement was the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ foreshadowed brilliantly in the Hebrew Scriptures.
Daniel reminds Michael of a series MLW preached several years ago about the mystery covering at least four subjects; the mystery of transgression, mystery of faith, mystery of marriage and the mystery of change.
As we continue going through Paul’s teaching on the mystery, we are reminded of what the “change” that took place at the Cross is all about – it was an alloy process. Two completely separate things coming together to make something which never existed without them or the process being made one!
There are people who brag about the fact that “there is no need to study; all you have to do is follow your heart”. The guys disregard this perspective. and reiterate their desire to honor the Hebrew Scriptures and to study them until their last breaths respectively. Michael cautions us about articulating disrespect for the Hebrew Scriptures as “those Jewish writings” and how historically that may have begun the slippery slope to antisemitism, something we want to expose and never have anything to do with.
We are reminded that not only were Apollos and Paul confrontational in their comparative teachings, Paul was outright combative against what he saw as “another gospel”. Daniel points out both Apollos and Paul significantly changed their perspectives on Christ and the messages they were sharing, which is exactly what he and Michael have done!
Before getting into our new topic, the fellas rehearse our last series out of Micah:
- They shall learn war no more.
- The Migdal Eder.
- The daughter of Zion.
- The Seed, the King, and the Lamb
- What tremendous stuff!
Then we commence examining “The Mystery” by looking at Paul’s teaching.
We pursue a few questions like;
- Was the mystery something that was true from before the foundations of the world?
- Or was it the blueprint before creation?
- Is the mystery like the promise — speaking of something to come?
- If the mystery was a reality from creation and
This week we conclude our study in Micah looking at the phrase: “thou will perform the truth to Jacob”. But not before Michael shares about DNA!
The Gospel Revolution is dedicated to researching the DNA of righteousness that all begins with a story. This week we learn what the seed, the king, and the lamb all had in common with the Migdal Eder and with Jesus.
“We have not yet been successful in bringing down the Word of Faith Movement. But we have been successful at bringing down a very large denomination that most people nowadays don’t even remember. It was Herbert W. Armstrong’s Worldwide Church of God (“Armstrongism”) … Back in the early ’90s my tapes about law versus grace got in there. That was what their denomination was all about, the old testament rituals. That was their ‘undoing’. They were so well-versed in the old testament of the Hebrew Scriptures that when I came along and starting showing the fulfillment of the Hebrew Scriptures, they fell completely apart.”
So began a celebration of the vitality of the Hebrew Scriptures, and about reading them and the entirety of the Bible in context, all from the Gospel vantage point!
“It was love that brought humanity the law. Its restrictions instituted temporarily led the whole world to everlasting freedom! All the Hebrew Scriptures lead to the truth, which is a person, which is the person of Jesus Christ!”
Daniel regales us with stories of Rhema Bible College and how reading in context saved his life. Then the guys recap Micah Chapter 4 and rehearse Micah 5 regarding the “Little Town of Bethlehem and the details of the prophecies of the death of Christ. We rejoice in Micah’s merciful conclusion in Chapter 7.
Just like true scientists, we’re wanting to know the truth and are ready at any moment to be proven wrong. All for the the sake of the humanity who is now God in the Earth! So powerful, this Gospel of Peace and Grace!
Michael opens up defending, once again, the Hebrew Scriptures. He share how allowing the story to remain we can continue to learn conflict resolution which will result in where we left our study a few weeks ago “and they shall study war no more”.
Do we have your attention, yet?
The podcast commences with the guys talking about Michael’s “war on old age” and Daniel’s fascination with the song “Imagine”.
Then we rehearse the importance of understanding what Malachi 3:5 actually says and means. As it turns out, God does change (paradigms and approaches).
We continue to “redeem” the Hebrew Scriptures and demonstrating its power!
The fellas move through Micah 4
uncovering two dramatic understandings.
- Who is the Daughter of Zion
- Where was the actual specific birthplace of Christ
These precise details of Christ’s life are outlined in the very Hebrew Scriptures some are trying to discredit, and are going to save your soul, AGAIN!
Michael opens up revisiting a vitally important aspect of the Gospel – no more dualism. No more God in heaven and man on earth but rather the two are one. The boys discuss how this understanding changes our perspective of just about everything!
Then we head to the Hebrew Scriptures to introduce a new study of Micah chapter 4 which reveals the result of the cross “and they shall study
