Trumpet Daily Radio Show

Trumpet Daily Radio Show brings you a deeper understanding of the Bible and how it connects to your world and your life right now.  Trumpet Daily Radio Show is hosted by the executive editor of the Philadelphia Trumpet newsmagazine and presenter of the Trumpet Daily television program, Stephen Flurry.

Stephen Flurry brings you a wide-ranging variety of topics from British politics to American morality to the Middle Eastern balance of power to Asian economics to principles of living to Bible points of doctrine. Trumpet Daily Radio Show matches this diverse array of interests to the factors most affecting your life right now. The program focuses these topics through a single lens: the timeless perspective of the Holy Bible.

Trumpet Daily Radio Show zeroes in on only the most important world news, events that often go underreported. It connects these rapidly unfolding developments to history and to end-time Bible prophecy. Programs include: “Don’t Believe the Naysayers, Europe Will Unite,” “Shrugging Off the Demise of the U.S. and Britain,” “The New Russia-China Alliance” and “The Bible and the British Museum."

Trumpet Daily Radio Show records from Trumpet Daily facilities at Edstone in the United Kingdom. The program is available on-demand at the Trumpet Daily website or the Trumpet Daily channel on YouTube. The program airs every morning at 7 a.m. (Central Time) on KPCG 101.3 FM in Edmond, Oklahoma.


Before and during World War II, Japan’s military carried out some of the worst brutality in mankind’s history. The wartime ruthlessness and fanaticism of the Japanese were largely driven by their belief that their emperor was a god destined to rule the world. State Shinto became the national religion, promoting an ideology of Japanese racial superiority.

 

By the end of World War II, Japan had been fighting for 14 years. Almost 3 million Japanese were dead, with many more injured or gravely ill. Most of the population was starving, and the nation lay in ruins. But even then, nothing short of two atomic bombs was able to bring a halt to Japan’s perverse military fanaticism.

 

It was then, in the immediate aftermath of that tragic history, that the United States occupied Japan and drafted its constitution. U.S. officials, led by Gen. Douglas MacArthur, wanted to ensure that bellicose fanaticism would not rise again in Japan, so they included Article 9 in the new Constitution. This clause outlawed war as a means for Japan to settle international disputes.

 

“We are committed,” MacArthur said, “to see that the Japanese people are liberated from this condition of slavery.”

 

But today, Japan is taking troubling steps away from pacifism and back toward full militarization. There are also signs that parts of the leadership would welcome a return to emperor worship. Have Japan and the world changed enough to justify modern Tokyo’s return to militarism and nationalism? If not, where is this leading? 


Marxist agitators tried to stir up a “day of rage” in London yesterday. “We’ve felt our power. We’ve tasted victory. Now we must escalate our actions to take down this rotten government, which has lost all authority to govern,” wrote the Movement for Justice by Any Means Necessary, one of the main agitators. On today’s show, Trumpet contributing editor Richard Palmer examines the far-left leaders who seek to use any tragedy as an excuse to stir up anger, hatred and even violence against the British government
 
Also on today’s show, Germany could soon be faced with a momentous decision. For the last few years, it has tried to take a middle-ground position between the United States and Russia. It has backed U.S.-led sanctions, while at the same time supporting a major growth of Russian power through the expansion of its gas pipeline network. The Nord Stream 2 pipeline—dubbed the “Molotov-Ribbentrop 2 Pipeline” by the Poles—will allow Russia to use its energy reserves as a precision weapon, cutting off individual nations from vital resources. Now America is poised to slap sanctions on German companies involved in Nord Stream 2. It could soon be decision time for Germany: Will it finally sever ties with Russia or join its eastern neighbor to overthrow the American-led world order?

Eastern Syria is right where the Bible says Iran’s influence will stop and another foreign power’s will begin. On today’s program, Middle East correspondent Brent Nagtegaal explores Iran’s two-month-long campaign to dominate this territory and how the United States’ surprising response may lead to a fulfillment of a biblical prophecy.


What is God’s view of material things? Should we accumulate wealth? Or should we subscribe to the idea that all material gain is wrong? What is the right balance? On today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show, we discuss the Bible’s definition of wealth and how you can acquire it.


What is one of the hardest things to win back once it is lost? It takes only moments to lose, but you can spend a lifetime trying to regain it—and not succeed.

Trust.

America is suffering a trust crisis. 

Do you trust those around you? Do you trust the government, the police? Do you trust the financial system? How about scientists, religious authorities, academia?

If you are like most Americans, the answer is no—or at least not nearly as much as you used to.

And that is disturbing because trust is what makes the world go round and society function. It is one of the most important factors that historically have differentiated western society from the developing world.

 


“If the United States gets divided too much between the idea of freedom and the idea of communism, this country could not stand,” Herbert W. Armstrong said on one of his World Tomorrow broadcasts. Today, communism has been fully integrated into America’s left wing, and the impact this is having on America is clear: Violence and division are on the increase. Where is this leading, and what is really at the core of the radical-left movement? Find out on today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show.


Tim Farron resigned yesterday as leader of the Liberal Democrats, saying that it was “impossible” for him to lead the party while “living as a faithful Christian.” Farron voted in favor of homosexual “marriage” and was generally very private about his religion. Yet even then, his religious beliefs were deemed too extreme for British politics. Meanwhile, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has met frequently with terrorists, pushed a radical Marxist agenda, and accepted cash from Britain’s enemies. Before last week’s election, Corbyn was a pariah in his own party; now he is being embraced by left-wing politicians. Trumpet contributing editor Richard Palmer examines a Britain that considers a private Christian too extreme for the nation and welcomes a terrorist-sympathizing Communist. On today’s show, we also look at the tragic shooting in America and what it says about the divided state of the nation, as well as a possible banking crisis occurring in Spain.


London woke up this morning to news of yet another tragedy. This time, a 27-story, high-rise apartment building caught fire overnight. So far, six people are reported dead, and over 50 are in the hospital. Officials fear the death toll could continue to rise. 

And just before we went on the air live this morning, news came in of the shooting at a baseball field where Republican congressmen were practicing for a charity game. Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise was shot in the hip.

In nearly every way, in every sector, America is facing a cultural collapse of historic proportions! Gallup released its annual Values and Beliefs poll last month. More than one third of Americans believe pornography is not only normal—but moral. None of the hot-button cultural issues measured have moved in a more traditionally conservative direction. Family unity causes national stability. Attacks on the traditional family mean attacking biblical morality. This is not the sign of a happy, healthy, stable society. It is, however, a sure sign that we are living in the very last days. Listen to today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show to understand why you should be very concerned about the breakdown of the family relationship. 


Prior to the nuclear deal with Iran, the United States had developed an incredibly successful network to thwart terrorist financing operations. As Barack Obama pressed ahead with the Iran deal, however, those operations lost funding and were “systematically disbanded,” according to former U.S. State Department official Dr. David Asher. Asher’s stunning testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee last Thursday was, by-and-large, ignored by the major media. On today’s program we discuss Asher’s comments and how the Obama administration helped legitimize the world’s biggest state sponsor of terrorism.
