CCR 101: Middle-earth with Dr. Mike Heiser

WHAT DOES MIDDLE-EARTH & GANDALF HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH CHRISTIANITY AND DR. MIKE HEISER? Why does Basil think he’s Legolas? And why does Basil think Gonz is Gimli? So many questions. Only one answer. Episode 101. If you identify yourself as a “Christian,” you might want to grab a warm cup of Joe, and make your brain comfortable. Because listening to Dr. Mike Heiser will make you think deeper about your faith. Why does Dr. Heiser believe that De-mythologized Christianity has caused a setback for the greater church? Could it be that the corporate relationship maintained between the academic Christian world, and the consuming Christian populous, has neglected a growing  segment of the church? Dr. Mike Heiser says, yes, and he calls it, Christian Middle-earth. And he says that we are the dwellers of it. We are the so called “fringe” Christians, or what Derek Gilbert of SkyWatchTV and PID Radio calls the “alt (dot) Christian” community. We operate outside the conventional church. We dwell in the land between the scholarly realms, and the greater masses; mostly online, the soil of Middle-earth. Our jobs are to be “traffic cops” for those who wander into Christian Middle-earth. We create sign posts and land marks to help those who wander into Christian Middle-earth find their way. We remind the wanderers to use the Armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-20) to protect from the Saruman’s and Orc’s. And of course, Dr. Mike Heiser explains why he is considered Gandalf. We here at Canary Cry Radio would like to think ourselves as the rest stop for Middle-earth. Stop by, take break from the battles, hang out, relax and gain wisdom from scholars like Dr. Mike Heiser. But perhaps our greatest duty is to remind all of you, to think outside the cage! DR.

CCR 129: Quantum Divination w/ Anthony Patch

ARE QUANTUM COMPUTERS GOING TO BE MODERN DIVINATION MACHINES? In the days that Jesus walked the earth, sorcery and divination were very common spiritual practices. Demonic forces led by the spirit of antichrist were met with people eager to harness their powers. But as the uniquely begotten Son of God, Jesus was able to put these spiritual abominations in check, and overpower them with the resurrection, and the coming of the Holy Spirit. Since the days of Pentecost, the spreading of the Gospel message of Jesus Christ for the salvation of souls has been the main focus and mission for the church. In the Olivet discourse, Jesus prophesied, “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come…” (Mt. 24:14). For two millennia, the church has been on the front lines, fulfilling this great commission. But as we march further into the 21st century, it appears that not only are the technologies that can truly fulfill Matthew 24:14 now available, but that same tech is what might fulfill the mark/image prophecy mentioned in the Book of Revelation. The rapid rise of computers, AI, nanotech, biotech, smart-everything tech, blockchain, and countless other fields of science, have essentially promised the very things God promised us. These include health and wellness to the point of eternal life (or at least the ability to live for as long as you choose), living in a paradise or edenic world (virtual worlds only limited by your imagination), and the promise of divinity (apotheosis). But something very profound is happening on the cutting edges of science, especially in the realm of quantum computing, that gives away the reality of the situation. For example, the circuitry being configured for one quantum computing project, are using a pattern that is precisely the same as the ancient practice of geomancy. Interestingly, it appears Jesus may have even had knowledge of the practice, using it against the sorcerers of the time in a story in the New Testament that you’re probably familiar with. While such concepts might sound ridiculous at first, it certainly has explanatory power to help us understand not only weird places in Scripture, but what’s happening in our world today. In fact, it seems to tie directly into the insanity that has come by way of social media platforms, our rapidly forming digital economy, and the highly divisive culture. In this episode, we explore these ideas and much more with our returning guest, Anthony Patch! Anthony Patch is a researcher, reporter, and author. He approaches difficult topics with a fine tooth comb and renders his findings through rational, open-minded, and informed analysis of the evidence.

CCR 127: Unmasking UFO Disclosure w/ Derek Gilbert & Josh Peck

UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS! What are they? Where are they from? Who is in them? Why are they here? Over the years, various interpretations of the UFO phenomenon have given rise to everything from silly meme’s to actual death cults. The hope for official UFO disclosure has always been a “carrot on the stick” for a public dying to know the truth about the subject. Those who have jumped to conclusions about who are behind the wheel of a UFO, have done so in religious fervor. But the scene has been more abuzz with unfolding events in recent months. While Wikileaks caused political upheaval during the last elections, UFO researchers pointed out communication in the email dumps between prominent figures (an astronaut) and individuals in government, about the topic of UFO disclosure. In recent months, former government agents have come forward to admit that there were programs tracking, monitoring, and analyzing these UFOs in as recent as the last presidency. While it was not an actual UFO landing on the White House lawn, the Wikileaks emails, and this announcement have been as close to UFO disclosure as we have seen. Alongside these apocalyptic reports in the mainstream media, an organization led by a rock star has emerged, supported by former government agents, promoting an education system surrounding the concept of “going to the stars.” With so much going on, it’s challenging to keep track of all the developments. But if we take a step back, and reflect on the phenomenon from a Biblical perspective, it becomes apparent that the philosophical engine driving the world in response to the UFO, is in direct opposition to Word of God! And what’s even more bizarre, it is the Bible itself that seems to have the best explanatory power for the questions that are sparked about the UFO, its occupants, and their purpose. And if such were the case, we would quickly realize that the spiritual war of the ages, rages on. And we are in the thick of it! To help unpack UFO disclosure, we welcome back Derek Gilbert and Josh Peck! They recently released the book, ‘The Day the Earth Stands Still: Unmasking the Old Gods Behind ETs, UFOs, and the Official Disclosure Movement’! Derek is an author, host of PID Radio with his wife Sharon, host of VFTB podcast, host of SkywatchTV News and more! Josh Peck, not the actor on Drake & Josh, is an author, and overall good guy!  LINKS The Day the Earth Stands Still: Unmasking the Old Gods Behind ETs, UFOs, and the Official Disclosure Movement SkywatchTV.com

CCR 089: Flat Earth with Mark Sargent

OUR MOTTO AT CANARY CRY RADIO HAS ALWAYS BEEN TO “THINK OUTSIDE THE CAGE” and this episode lives up to it! There’s an old Incubus song called ‘Wish You Were Here’ with the lyrics, “The sky resembles a back-lit canopy with holes punched in it.” Well according to our guest, such a description may not be too far from the truth. The first thing we are taught in school is that 1+1=2, and that the earth is a spherical globe. But what if, JUST WHAT IF, this entire enterprise was a sham, the greatest conspiracy to ever behold humanity? In this episode we explore the impossible, the unfathomable, the ridiculous notion, that the earth is actually flat! Our guest is Mark Sargent, he’s the champion of the first pinball world tournament in 1994 and has worked in the technology sector ever since, but he also happens to be a newly convert to the flat earth, or enclosed world theory. His YouTube channel MarkKSargent has published a series of videos called Flat Earth Clues, which he describes as videos “designed to get both our heads around the design of the flat earth system we live in, and who has been involved in the deception to hide it from you.” Put aside all of your conditioning and preconceived notions for this episode, as it will challenge your “normalcy bias.” As a side note, stick around until the end of the episode where Gonz gives a little update on the varying views of the flat earth model, notably from Math Boylan of TheNASAChannel who believes that Mark Sargent and others who promote an enclosed earth are government dis-info agents. SOME EXAMPLES OF FLAT EARTH BIBLE PASSAGES Isaiah 40:21-23 Do you not know? Do you not hear? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in; who brings princes to nothing, and makes the rulers of the earth as emptiness. Psalm 19:4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun. Proverbs 8:27 I was there when he set the heavens in place, when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep, 1 Chronicles 16:30: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable.”  Psalm 93:1: “Thou hast fixed the earth immovable and firm …”  Psalm 96:10: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable …”  Psalm 104:5: “Thou didst fix the earth on its foundation so that it never can be shaken.”  Isaiah 45:18: “…who made the earth and fashioned it, and himself fixed it fast…” LINKS Mark K Sargent YouTube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/markksargent) Math Boylan [TheNASAChannel] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxyCpWcg-kE) Satellite Hoax (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLMRWvXuc5U) Former NASA Artist Matt Boylan (https://www.youtube.com/user/TheNASAchannel) Eric Dubay (https://www.youtube.com/user/ericdubay77) The Atlantean Conspiracy (http://www.atlanteanconspiracy.com/) LOFI Files (CLICK HERE)

CCR 146: Serpent Mounds w/ LA Marzulli

There are mysterious places all over the world filled with untold stories of our ancient origins. One that exists in the United States of America, are the Serpent Mounds in Ohio. Resembling the shape of a coiling serpent visible only from high above the ground, the mounds in Ohio are publicly described as an ancient burial site for native American Indians who roamed the free and open land just a couple centuries ago. However, according to some who have documented the mounds, as well as the descendants from the tribes themselves, suggest locations like the Serpent Mound have much more to do with a powerful imprint of the supernatural entities who built them. In episode 146, our friend LA Marzulli returns with his new video series ON THE TRAIL OF THE NEPHILIM, tackling the topic of “The Mysterious Moundbuilders.” LA’s theory suggests that not only were the builders of the mounds descendants of the biblically recorded Nephilim, but that they are still alive and hiding somewhere today! If such theories have any truth to them, it would help explain the authoritarian style lock down that academic and archeological institutions (like the Smithsonian) practice over the funding of research related to our ancient past. By being able to control the historical narrative, along with a politicized scientific theory like evolution to pump the story, the general public would have no idea that the fantastic mythical descriptions of events in the ancient past found especially in the Biblical account, were not just exaggerated and colorful metaphors to describe a far more mundane existence. Rather, it confirms that our world is laced with supernaturalism and a spiritual realities that are consistent with a world where Jesus Christ died for our sins, and rose from the dead. But no matter what you believe about our ancient past, even from a Biblical perspective, you can’t dismiss the significance of the strange experiences that LA documents in this film.

CCR 097: Forbidden Secrets of the Labyrinth with Mark Flynn

THE POWERS OF SYMBOLS have been at the heart of the occult hierarchy for centuries. Hidden meanings embedded within this sacred language have been passed down through each generation of initiates, getting buried deeper and deeper under the layers of history, mythology, and philosophy. The attempt to uncover the gems of truth forged deep within this labyrinth is not an easy task. But luckily, we have researchers like Mark Flynn to help us grasp what the true agenda of the so called illumined ones have in mind for America and the World. Mark Flynn is the twin brother of the late author David Flynn, whose groundbreaking research lead to the publishing of Cydonia: The Secret Chronicles of Mars, and the Temple at the Center of Time, both considered classics in fringe Christian research. Keeping with the Flynn tradition of publishing groundbreaking books, Mark is the author of Forbidden Secrets of the Labyrinth: The Awakened Ones, The hidden Destiny of America, And the Day After Tomorrow! Mark Flynn is the brother of the late author David Flynn, whose Watchers website was groundbreaking in the realm of fringe Christian research into the antichrist, UFOs, aliens, and the compatibility with the Bible.

CCR 062: Bible Facts with Dr. Ken Johnson

As Evangelical Christians, the 66 books we have in our hands is all we need to gain salvation through the acknowledgement of Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord. However, commentary from extra-biblical text and the early church fathers help us fill in some gaps that otherwise would be lost to us in the modern era. Dr. Ken Johnson is one of those folks who have scoured many of these extra-Biblical text and writings of the early church fathers. Using the Bible as the grounded point of reference, Dr. Ken Johnson has been able to paint a picture of the ancient world that few are able to ascertain. From it, he has been able to not only show how the truth is found in the Bible, but also the significance of its prophecies, those already fulfilled and those yet in the future. In this conversation, Basil, Gonz, and Dr. Ken Johnson dive deep into topics like Gnosticism, Genesis 6 and the identity of the sons of God. They also bring up Nimrod, Odin, Venus, and other ancient deities, ancient paganism, as well modern day prophecies, over 50 of which Dr. Ken Johnson thinks were fulfilled in the last century. Dr. Ken Johnson is an author and lecturer who speaks on a variety of issues related to Bible prophecy, ancient history, and the apostasy that will form in the church in the last days. He received a Doctorate in Theology from the Christian College of Texas back in 1989 and He’s the CEO and founder of Biblefacts Ministries at biblefacts.org and has authored twenty-one book including Ancient Post-Flood History: Historical Documents That Point to Biblical Creation, Ancient Paganism: The Sorcery of the Fallen Angels, Ancient Messianic Festivals: And The Prophecies They Reveal, and Demonic Gospels: The Truth about the Gnostic Gospel.

CCR 056: The Moon Episode

One of the earths grandest mysteries might be that giant golf ball like orb dancing in the heavens. Its origins are unknown and its purpose only slightly understood. Speculations as to what it actually is range from simply another celestial ball of dirt in space to an alien space station, housing reptilians, unicorns, and bat-people. It’s been worshiped and prescribed godlike qualities for it’s unique and rhythmic cycles that govern our oceans, calendars, and even our behaviors. It’s been with us as long as we can remember. It’s the moon. In this episode, we discuss everything from the mundane theories to the insane beliefs about the moon. We cover everything from the basic scientifically verifiable facts, to all the speculative conspiracies surrounding the moon. We also get into the Bible and what it has to say about the moon. In particular, we discuss the many places where the moon is used by God as a signal for the Day of the Lord as well as what the moon will look like when the new heavens and the new earth are formed.

CCR 105: The Babylon Code with Paul McGuire and Troy Anderson

IS THERE A CODE IN THE BIBLE ONLY MEANT TO BE UNDERSTOOD IN THE END TIMES? According to Paul McGuire and Troy Anderson, authors of the book ‘The Babylon Code: Solving the Bible’s Greatest End-Times Mystery,’ there certainly is. The characteristics of the culture in ancient times as recorded during the building of the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11, eerily mirror the culture and philosophical presuppositions of today. The tools of science and technology have brought us to a point in history where the wildest ideas and imaginations of men become achievable. And since man is fallen in sin, the aspirations for humanity also fulfill the will of the fallen one. Even with the best intentions, it appears mankind will lose control over the steering wheel of scientific advancement, leading to abominable lifeforms to roam the earth again as it once did thousands of years ago. The intervention for this flesh eating spiritual condition was first solved on Calvary, where Jesus Christ hung on the cross and died for our iniquities. But in His resurrection, defying the confined laws of nature by overcoming death, Jesus proved that He was the One who has power over creation. And thus, it will be Him again to return to fulfill the long awaited hope to restore creation, from the dirt, to the soul. This unfathomable future event is the great hope and promise that all Christians have, yet few realize. The goal for a book like ‘The Babylon Code: Solving the Bible’s Greatest End-Times Mystery,’ is to begin tearing down the barrier placed between the truth and the people, with the hope that God would use it to awaken people to the relevancy and power of the Gospel in our current world.

CCR 132: Camp of the Unknown God! w/ Carl Teichrib

BURNING MAN! We’ve been told it’s the place where pagans come to worship demons in the desert in their birthday suits and psychedelics, right? Actually, that’s only partially true. This so called “transformative event,” is much more than a glorified Woodstock. Rather, the tens/hundreds of thousands who gather each year come seeking an experience; some simply for a good time and unwind from the mundane nine-to-five, others for the ultimate spiritual experience to connect with transcendent and metaphysical parts of reality. They hired him how? Tech moguls who are fond of Burning Man have expressed the event as a place where people gather to manifest something they call “group flow,” or what we would call “hive mind behavior.” In fact, Google even used Burning Man as a test to hire their former CEO, Eric Schmidt. The litmus test was in his ability to merge or to hinder “group flow”! But apart from their behavior, the question ought to be “What worldview(s) are actually being presented and taught at Burning Man?” And the answer, is prophetic! It’s All About Worldview Every computer needs an Operating System as a foundation to carry out all the functions that these magical machines bring to our fingertips. The same could be said about human society, where worldview is the primary foundation, by which our civilization draws its functional capacities (to form organization, institutions, governments, and other communal establishments for the common good). And similar to the variety of options in the marketplace of Operating Systems like Linux, MacOS, iOS & Windows, in our contemporary western civilization, we have a buffet of option to choose how to view the world. While the freedom to explore the options without being killed by controlling authorities is a positive product of westernization (or so it appears), a lack of critical thinking and grounded reasoning when examining them have given way to some pretty confusing times. What is emerging from this worldview vacuum is a “new spirituality” with an ingredient that we’ve been tracking here on Canary Cry Radio for years: Technology. This cultural move towards techno-spiritualism is all the more apparent with the theme for this years (2018) Burning Man, I, Robot. Most importantly, this march towards a unifying monistic techno-spiritualism and its outcome are best outlined in the pages of the Bible, where prophetic vision becomes a scientific reality.  Welcome Back Carl! To discuss these issues and more we’re pumped to have Carl Teicheib back! He’s the author of GAME OF GODS! The Temple of Man in the Age of Re-enchantment. Carl joined us on CCR 032 (Oct. 8 2012), and again discussing Transformative Events on CCR 078, (Nov 1, 2014)!  Support Carl! Just as Paul found himself preaching the Gospel in a purely pagan society, Carl Teichrib has been attending the Burning Man events on an annual basis for research and evangelism. Taken straight out of Acts 17, Carl’s tent at Burning Man reads “Camp of the Unknown God.” There are few who have even attempted to evangelize at a place like Burning Man, but equipped with the knowledge, experience, and research into everything from plans for a world government alongside the cultural explosion of neo-paganism, Carl Teichrib is setting the example on evangelism for our generation. Please Help Support Carl and his team!

CCR 138: Angels w/ Dr. Mike Heiser

WHO ARE ANGELS IN THE BIBLE REALLY?For as long as many of us can remember, angels have been depicted as humanoid beings with one distinguishing factor; wings. From ancient paintings and sculptures to modern blockbuster films out of Hollywood, this image of an angel is often associated with the Biblical account of God’s heavenly host. But how much of it is actually true? How do the Biblical authors ACTUALLY talk about the appearance and interactions of angels? And most importantly, what does it have to do with us, right here, right now? In this episode, Dr. Mike Heiser (our Galdolf) returns with his latest book, ANGELS: WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY SAYS ABOUT GOD’S HEAVENLY HOST.As we enter 2019, the personal accounts and anecdotes of encounters with angels will continue to flood the internet. But as followers of Jesus Christ, it might be a good idea to ground ourselves in what the Bible really says about them, so as to be better equipped to analyze the plethora of personal accounts out there. Our Identity in ChristBut even more than just head knowledge about angels in the Bible, the topics outlined in our discussion, and even deeper in the actual book, reveal the true identity of the believers in Jesus Christ! This fundamental connection between angels and our identity in Christ is often obscured and confused by mythology. But it is foundational to how we as Christians should be thinking about ourselves, and about our fellow human beings, as it properly provides a cohesive Biblical framework by which we can apply to our lives. The reframing process of our identity in Christ that comes from the Biblical deep dive on the topic of angels, will without a doubt, help connect lots of dots between everything from the fall of man, the Genesis 6 account, the Tower of Babel event, all the Old Testament violence, Jesus’ ministry, Paul’s ministry and even our role today as it pertains to our future in the restored Eden!

CCR 106: The Dragon King with Brian Godawa

WHAT IS THE ORIGIN OF THE DRAGON? The Bible describes the Dragon as Satan, the serpent, the nefarious rebel and adversary who has his own interest in mind at the expense of mankind. Meanwhile, in the ancient far east, the dragon has been a symbol of authority, royalty and class for a millennia. How might we in the west attempt to understand this seeming dichotomy? Was the ancient far east such as China and Japan influenced by Satan, and thus the dragon imagery? Or is there something else going on? The author of The Chronicles of the Nephilim Series and good friend of the podcast, Brian Godawa, dives into these topics through the Divine Council paradigm in his new book The Dragon King: First Emperor of China. This is the first of the new fiction and fantasy series by Brian called The Chronicles of the Watchers. Brian teamed up with former visual director of Marvel Studios, Charlie Wen, to tell an action-adventure romance rooted in the ancient history and spiritual reality of China. A description of the book reads: East Eats West It’s 220 B.C. The ancient Western Empire is crumbling. In a desperate bid to save his throne, the Greek Seleucid king over Babylon sends his son, Antiochus, a dishonored warrior, into the mysterious land of the Far East to capture a mythical creature that will give him absolute power: a dragon. Antiochus takes with him his longtime friend, Balthazar, a member of the Magi order of Babylon, responsible for both the religion and science of the empire. But Balthazar also carries with him a dangerous secret that could destroy Antiochus’ plans and plunge the world into chaos. They sail beyond their maps into the mysterious and uncharted Eastern Orient. They are discovered and escorted inland to the empire of Ch’in (now known as China), ruled by the first emperor, Ch’in Shi Huang Di. The emperor is a brutal ruler and is on the edge of insanity in a mad quest to find the elixir of immortality. Antiochus meets and falls in forbidden love with a beautiful concubine of the emperor, Mei Li. But she also harbors a secret that can bring down the mad emperor. It’s the truth of China’s spiritual past that is mysteriously connected to the ancient Hebrews and the Tower of Babel. And there are spiritual principalities and powers who seek to stop them all. These are the Watchers, who have their own plans to rule the world. Finding and capturing a dragon is the least of Antiochus’ difficulties in this action-adventure clash of cultures and war of gods. Part of the Historical Fantasy Series Chronicles of the Watchers The Dragon King is the first book of the Historical Fantasy Series Chronicles of the Watchers that charts the influence of spiritual principalities and powers over the course of human history. The kingdoms of man in service to the gods of the nations at war. Completely based on ancient historical and mythological research. Purchase THE DRAGON KING on Amazon Brian Godawa Website

CCR 081: The Portent with Dr. Michael Heiser

ANCIENT TOMBS, LONG-FORGOTTEN NAZI EXPERIMENTS, UFOs, OCCULT MYTHOLOGIES, BIBLICAL THEOLOGY, AND GODLIKE TECHNOLOGIES converge in Volume 2 of The Facade Saga, The Portent, written by returning guest and Biblical scholar, Dr. Michael Heiser. Back on episode 40, Basil and Gonz spoke to Dr. Heiser about the Divine Council and all of the Biblical context for God’s heavenly bureaucracy and their activity and intervention of mankind. For this episode, the focus shifts on his works of fiction, The Facade, and the follow up, The Portent. As a Biblical scholar, Dr. Heiser is known for his academic approach to theology. But his talent for writing is exemplified in these two works, where the characters are dynamic, relatable, and down to earth, while the setting, storyline, and overarching themes are rooted in the reality of various lesser known facts about the dark activity of governments and elite leaders of the world. The struggle between the main characters, who are simply trying to do the “right thing,” in direct opposition to intelligent evil, makes for a dramatic intellectual landscape, where deception is the main tool that is leveraged to bring about the greatest possible destruction by the enemy. And while the story itself rides these themes, the deeper rooted application of these ideas are relayed by Dr. Heiser in this discussion. The Portent in particular highlights this deceptive quality of intelligent evil, and is a stark warning to those who are within the church, and beyond, to seriously reconsider the foundation of their worldview as they go through life. Dr. Heiser also discusses his upcoming books, the scholarly work called The Unseen Realm, and the more mainstream version of the book Super Natural.

CCR 060: Geoengineering with Dane Wigington

Two thousand years ago, Jesus described what we can expect to see as the end of the age drew near. Matthew 24 records these prophecies, “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.” Traditional interpretations of these passages pointed to how natural catastrophes around the world such as famines and earthquakes would increase. However, it is quite possible that Jesus knew these birth pains would not be caused by a purely natural phenomena, but as a symptom of the global elite taking hold of technology to manipulate and control the weather. Such is the case with what is known as geoengineering. Dane Wigington has a background in solar energy and is a former employee of Bechtel Power Corp. He owns a 1,600 acre “wildlife preserve” next to Lake Shasta in Northern California where his residence has been featured in Home Power magazine, the largest renewable energy magazine. Dane has been looking into the topic of geoengineering since 2002 when he noticed that he was losing a significant amount of solar uptake due to whatever was being sprayed into the air. He is now the lead researcher at geoengineeringwatch.org and has investigated all levels of geoengineering from stratospheric aerosol geoengineering to HAARP. Basil and Gonz talk with Dane about his research as they tap into the data behind things like HAARP and chemtrails, but also the deep rooted effort for public media and established academia to cover up and suppress this information from the masses. While raising awareness about geoegnineering is vital to stop these crimes against humanity and creation, we must remember where our ultimate hope lies. Perhaps the Apostle Paul also knew that the earth itself would fall into the manipulation and control of evil men when he wrote in Romans 8; “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.” www.geoengineeringwatch.org Lo-Fi File Click Here Gonz picture of chemtrails 12-17-2013

He has a Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible and Semitic Languages with expertise on Ancient Israel and Egyptology.

We like to call him “the guy who makes all the stuff we talk about credible.” In this interview, Dr. Heiser walks us through the Divine Council view of the Bible. Another interview that Dr. Heiser did a couple years ago on the same topic was on View From the Bunker with Derek Gilbert. The guys also touch on the topic of how the Divine Council relates to the current subject of UFOs and ETs as well as the underlining theological question of how we define God. This interview is full of interesting and fascinating gems based on the Scriptures that you’ve probably read several times.

CCR 064: Silent Screamers with Dante Fortson

THE BIBLE is full of strange beings and events that give us clues into some of the deepest mysteries of our world today. But many in the church are reluctant to speak about supernatural and paranormal subject matters that are popular in modernity. Such is not the case for Minister Dante Fortson, who believes that the Bible not only provides answers to these issues, but can actually lead to a better understanding of the Bible as a whole. In today’s discussion, Basil and Gonz are joined by Minister and author, Dante Fortson. They tread on topics familiar to most listeners of Canary Cry Radio, including Genesis 6, the sons of God, and the Nephilim. They get into demonology and how these ancient issues are manifesting in our time today. The guys also discuss Dante Fortson’s latent work, Silent Screamers, a fantasy fiction rooted in the research that Dante has done over the years. By using real mythological beings, and a Biblical framework, Dante tells us about how the end times and the Great Deception may unfold. Perhaps most fascinating is the fact that his main character is an atheist. They discuss how fiction can be a way to not only pique the interest of people to begin research on these subjects, but also to saves souls and lead people to Christ. Dante’s unique ministry is something that is inspiring and informative. Minister Dante Fortson is a best selling author of several books including As the Days of Noah Were: The Sons of God and the Coming Apocalypse, The Serpent Seed Debunked, Beyond Flesh and Blood: The Ultimate Guide to Angels and Demons, The Lines of Seth: A Brief History of Heresy, and most recently, Silent Screamers: Book 1 The Rise of Bacchus.  LINKS -Minister Dante Fortson’s Website (http://ministerfortson.com) -Silent Screamers Website (http://silentscreamers.net) -LOFI File (Click HERE) // // // // // // // // // //

CCR 104: Trilateral Technocrats with Patrick Wood

WHO IS REALLY IN CONTROL OF THE GLOBAL INSTITUTIONS? According to seasoned researcher and author Patrick Wood, it is the Trilateral Commission. Created in 1973 by private citizens of Japan, members of the European Union, and North America, the Trilateral Commission set out to establish standards for industrialization and globalization by suggesting cooperation and integration of leading nations. The result is an independent elite who influence and control governments and banks around the world. A major connection to the ideologies of the Trilateral Commission is the concept of Technocracy. While technocracy was a failed institution prior to World War 2, the concepts never died, and today, we are living in the technocratic dream. As scientific breakthroughs and technological tools progressed and disseminated into the world, the ability to control the masses via this medium also grew. As a result, we live in a quiet scientific dictatorship with the continued progress towards a total surveillance state. In fact, the agenda has advanced so much, that we are seeing the United Nations push for the 2030 Sustainable Development plan, announced by the Pope last September in his visit to America. Patrick Wood studied economics at the U of A. He was the founder of The August Corporation back in 1975 where he initially offered portfolio management services to investors in the US. In 1978 he commenced the publication of the Trilateral Observer to keep track and document the activities of the Trilateral Commission with co-editor, the late Antony Sutton, a name that many conspiracy theorists are familiar with. The pair then went on to publish the best-seller, Trilaterals Over Washington Part I and Part II, which became a staple in this research, even being used in some political science classrooms. In 1981, he founded the World Research Library, where our friend Carl Teichrib is currently a Senior Fellow. He has continued his research with the August Review and the August Forecast, which is now under the operating name Technocracy.news. http://technocracy.news LOFI File Click HERE

CCR 095: Christian Transhumanism with Reverend Doctor Benek

IS CHRISTIANITY AND THE TECHNOLOGICAL SINGULARITY COMPATIBLE? When we started Canary Cry Radio back in 2012, we saw that the march toward a technological singularity, and the advent of transhumanism, was first, a secular enterprise, but second, an occult and esoteric endeavor, relating back to the earliest forms of spiritual practices, such as Kabbalah, Alchemy, and the ancient mystery schools. From our Christian worldview, the eschatological catalyst is the arrival of the Antichrist and his beast kingdom, which will eventually usher in the return of Jesus Christ to judge and restore the world with a new heavens and new earth. Included in the promise of His return, is an event known as the resurrection of the dead, where the dead in Christ rise first, and are given new, indestructible, immortal bodies. Contrary to this Biblical end times view, is the idea that humanity, through the progress of technology and science, will ultimately achieve immortality, and thus salvation. Or so we thought. In this episode, we are joined by a man who is a pastor, husband, and father, and a graduate of the world’s first ever Doctor of Ministry program focusing specifically on Theology and Science from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, Reverend Doctor Christopher Benek. He also has advanced degrees in Ministry/Theology (Ethics) from Princeton Theological Seminary and is currently working on a fourth in Technology and Theology at Durham University in England. He has been featured all over the place, from the NY Times, FOX News, RT, to Christianity Today, Motherboard, the Daily Show, and now, Canary Cry Radio. According to Reverend Doctor Benek, Christianity must lead the conversation in transhumanism and the technological singularity in order to shape it for the betterment of mankind, and ultimately to bring glory to Jesus Christ. He calls this “Christian Transhumanism.” While we share the notion of bringing glory to Jesus Christ and doing good works for the Kingdom, there are limitations and lessons from Biblical history, as well as projected events in Biblical eschatology, that seem to suggest that we ought to be very cautious about fully immersing ourselves in a transhuman, and ultimately post-human future. Do you believe that we can have Christian Transhumanism to glorify God in this world as Reverend Benek suggests? Or do you believe that one day, we will have to put the technology and science down, as it might ultimately be the catalyst to usher in the mark of the beast, the image of the beast, and the wrath of God?
