NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER 2023: A Concert of Prayer
The annual recognition of the National Day of Prayer is Thursday, May 4, 2023. This episode of 2Days Denarius, as in the previous two years, is devoted to giving prayer on behalf of our great nation. This year, it's being done differently than the prior two as it gives those who listen an opportunity to join in and pray from their own hearts over the seven different prayer topics it covers. These include, Family, Church, Education, Business and the Workplace, the Military, our Government, the Arts, Entertainment, and the Media. All these sectors are critical to the health and wellbeing of our nation. This is guided prayer. There is no music, as all who participate should come with focused hearts and minds, with no distraction. Please take the necessary time to pause from all activity, to find a place to pray with fervency and intensity, as these are so much needed at this time. 2Days Denarius is grateful to the National Day of Prayer Task Force for providing the prayer guide that this episode of 2DaysD follows. In addition, this ministry expresses gratitude to the First Baptist Church Atlanta for promoting participation and the prayer guides on its website as well. The prayer guides my be obtained at the weblinks nationaldayofprayer.org or fba.org. 2Days Denarius is a social media ministry dedicated to the spiritual growth of Christians and to reach the lost with the Good News of salvation in Jesus Christ and Him alone. The creator of this podcast fully supports the inerrancy, infallibility, and authority of Scripture as our only rule of faith and practice. He also holds to the doctrines of the true Christian faith as provided in the London Baptist Confession of 1689.

My Tribute to Dr. Charles Stanley
On April 18, 2023, one of the great evangelical preachers of our generation passed on to our heavenly home. Dr. Charles Stanley was 90 years old and left behind an amazingly fruitful ministry covering over 68 years. Not only did he serve at First Baptist Church of Atlanta as its pastor for 49 years, he also headed In Touch Ministries, that was viewed and listened to around the world since 1972. When I think about Charles Stanley, the word that comes to mind is "impact." He was a true gentleman, but was still sincere in the pulpit and spoke the truth always in a caring and loving way that brought new hope and life in Christ to thousands in all his years of ministry. This tribute to Dr. Charles Stanley focuses on my personal stories of learning from him from a distance for over 30 years on radio, television, and the internet. It also covers some of his milestones and great contributions to the church as well. 2Days Denarius is a Bible teaching ministry that exists to encourage Christians and support them in their spiritual growth. It also seeks to give the message of the Good News of salvation in Jesus Christ to the lost. It's a ministry built on the inerrancy, infallibility, and authority of Scripture as our only rule of faith and practice. That is, it is a truly Evangelical ministry in doctrine. 2DaysD may be reached by email at email@example.com Them song "Most of Our Time" is used by permission of songwriter/artist, Pastor Steve Hereford of the Eastport Baptist Church in Jacksonville, FL.

Final Thoughts on Asbury Revival and Jesus Revolution Part 2
This new episode of 2Days Denarius takes up where the previous podcast on this topic of the Asbury Revival and Jesus Revolution movie left off. It provides a respectful and closer examination of the direction of the Asbury Revival and the fruits of the Jesus Movement from the mid 1960s-1970s. As Scripture states in 1 John 4:1, it is appropriate that we "test the spirits" of these events by close examination for the spiritual safety of Christians and our own. Jonathan Edwards and Martyn Lloyd-Jones established solid biblical criteria upon which to make reasonable conclusions on these events. They are covered in this episode, making this likely to be the most important of the three podcasts on this topic. The New Apostolic Reformation, which is an off-shoot of the false prophet, Lonnie Frisbee side of the Jesus Movement is examined, among other checks that bring the overall authenticity Asbury Outpouring into question. 2Days Denarius is Bible teaching ministry dedicated to the edification and spiritual growth of Christians, along with spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost. The creator of this podcast, Rev. Ron Thomas, fully believes in the inerrancy, infallibility, and authority of Scripture as our only rule of faith and practice. He also holds to the doctrines as defined in the London Baptist Confession of 1689, Baptist Faith and Message 2000, and most of the provisions set in the Westminster Confession of Faith 1647. 2Days Denarius can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Time to Examine Asbury and Jesus Revolution Revivals Part 1
Whether coincidence or Providence, it has to be wondered how the Asbury Revival and the release of the Jesus Revolution movie occurred in such near proximity. But both of these have been out in front of us enough now to take a closer examination of the authenticity and effect they may be having on the religious and secular world around us. The book of 1 John 4:1 commands "...do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see if they are from God..." (CSB). The warnings about false prophets and their ability to deceive are clear throughout both testaments in Scripture. In our day of ecumenism, spiritual ignorance, and idolatry, Christians must maintain knowledge of whether or not a revival is a true work of the Holy Spirit. This episode of 2Days Denarius is the fist part of 2 that will explore this issue. It's a fascinating journey that includes evaluation, edification, and encouragement to help us navigate and stay on a straight path on our faith journey. The Asbury Revival is a recent event but the Jesus Movement, as portrayed in the Jesus Revolution movie, began in the mid to late 1960s throughout the 1970s. But both have impact today, especially the Jesus Movement. These two episodes will cover much of that. 2Days Denarius is a teaching social media ministry that stands behind the inerrancy, infallibility, and authority of Scripture as our only rule of faith and practice. Jesus Christ is our one and only Lord and Savior as stated in John 3:16, John 14:6, and Acts 4:12 (among many other passages in the Bible). For those who do not know Christ as Lord and Savior, or for other questions, 2DaysD may be reached by email at email@example.com.

The Asbury Revival Question: From Jonathan Edwards's View
On February 8, 2023, a significant spontaneous appearance of sudden spiritual fervor arose among the students attending Chapel services at Asbury University in Wilmore, Kentucky. This took place immediately after one among the school staff preached a short sermon on the subject how Christians should love Christ and then show this love toward others. Students did not leave the Chapel but immediately began praying there and this continued for days. It has also spread to other college campuses in various states as well. It has come to be titled, the Asbury Revival. The university experienced a similar type of revival among the students and faculty in 1970. However, the larger question being asked is whether or not the Asbury event is an authentic revival or not. It has been examined by many who share both the negative and positive sides of the spectrum. But this episode handles it by looking at the writings of Jonathan Edwards, who wrote much on this topic having overseen two significant revivals (including The First Great Awakening of 1741) during his years of ministry. This episode of 2Days Denarius will take its own examination of the Asbury Revival through Edwards's famous writing, "The Distinguishing Marks of a Work of the Spirit of God," which he wrote to defend the revivals of the early 1740s. There is much to be learned from Edwards's categorization of what is and what is not part of a true revival. It is educational, insightful, and enriching to learn that in our time, we may well be seeing a significant move of God across our nation. It is something we all should pray for! 2Days Denarius is a Bible-based educational ministry for Christians who want to learn, grow stronger in their faith, and apply the doctrines of Scripture to daily living. Rev. Thomas is a full Bible-believer, and affirms the inerrancy, infallibility, and authority of Scripture as our only rule of faith and practice. *One correction in this episode: The Azuza Street Revival was started in a home that a group of Christians, led by a pastor, met in for the purpose of seeking to be filled with the Holy Spirit. It lasted from 1906-1915. Theme song "Most of Our Time" is used by permission of author/artist, Pastor Steve Hereford of the Eastport Baptist Church in Jacksonville, FL.

New Year! NEW BEGINNING! Spiritual GOALS 2023
As we have welcomed 2023, it serves as a good opportunity to reassess many areas of our lives. For the Christian, certainly the most important examination we can devote our time to is that of creating new spiritual goals for this new year. This first episode of 2023 for 2Days Denarius covers the topics of Bible reading, Prayer, Fellowship, and Stewardship to aid Christians in planning for spiritual growth and opportunity this year. It's worth listen to the full podcast as it not only explains and discusses the topics, but also offers many doable ideas on how to bring new goals to fruition. This is the fourth year since the founding of the 2Days Denarius podcast. Certainly there are great plans and goals made by the creator to make this a more engaging channel in 2023! Come along for the journey! 2Days Denarius is a podcast dedicated to the spiritual growth of Christians, evangelization of the lost, and fully supports churches that uphold the true gospel of Jesus Christ in the evangelical tradition. The ministry adheres to the inerrancy, infallibility, and authority of Scripture. Its founder is a full supporter of and regularly attends a local New Testament church. 2Days Denarius can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Churches Closing on Christmas Sunday? SAY IT ISN'T SO!!
This episode of 2Days Denarius has two parts. The early section will present some good news regarding channel analytics for 2022. The channel grew not only in the US, but reached many other countries as well. This ministry is always thankful for the faithful followers who invest time and prayer into this channel. The second section will discuss the recent trend of many evangelical churches planning to close their doors on Christmas Sunday 2022. This is an unfortunate turn of events and one that deserves both a theological and practical application presentation. Though this podcast is rather lengthy, it is valuable from beginning to end with much of the theological and historical information it presents. Rev. Ron Thomas of 2Days Denarius is a bible-believing minister, who also holds to the inerrancy, infallibility and authority of Scripture. The Bible is our only rule of faith and practice, and as a spiritual growth and educational channel, all podcasts are planned and presented with these standards in regard to faith and practice in mind. 2Days Denarius may be reached via email at email@example.com.

Giving Gratitude to God on Thanksgiving 2022
Even with the challenges many have faced, along with our nation, we still have much to be thankful for. This new podcast by 2Days Denarius will share three prayers that invidviduals and/or families may use prior to Holiday meals. The first prayer is of historical significance as it comes from the Thanksgiving proclamation by President John F. Kennedy that was given a few weeks before his assassination on November 22, 1963. Mary Fairchild's Thanksgiving prayer is the second, then followed by the third, as provided by Ron Thomas. Take time to listen, focus, and reflect as you participate in the time of prayer - we always have much to be thankful for! This episode briefly presents some history behind Thanksgiving with some discussion of proclamations by George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. As the creator of this podcast ministry, Rev. Ron Thomas is thankful for all listeners, subscribers, and friends who support 2Days Denarius. You have made this a great year, and I will create a podcast about the growth of 2Days Denarius in December. In the meantime, take time to pray! And have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday! 2Days Denarius may be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The ministry always looks forward to hearing from our listeners!

KEITH GREEN REPLAY: Now 40 Years in Heaven
This episode is a rebroadcast of 2Days Denarius's episode on the 38th anniversary of the tragic passing of the great contemporary Christian music artist and evangelist, Keith Green. Many Christians either today or who listened to both his music and messages were greatly impacted by his commitment, and often, the conviction that came from the words he spoke. His music and voice is still heard today, even 40 years after that tragic day on July 28, 1982 when Keith and two of his very young children left us. One thing all of us who listened to his music and read The Last Days Ministries Newsletter knew was that he was the real deal, he was genuine, compassionate, spoke the truth in love, as one who understood this since he spent much of his early years "searching for that crazy missing part" that he ultimately found in Christ the Lord. Take a listen to this podcast and learn how God's love broke through to a man and his wife, Melody, after spending years in the drug culture before being caught up in the Divine and Supernatural light. What their lives became is an inspiration for all of us and another example of the amazing change God can make in a life when he or she surrenders and receives Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior!

What Makes a Great Prayer? Let This GREAT Saint Show YOU!!
In consideration of the seeming ineffectiveness of this generation of Evangelical Christians to make a significant impact for Christ on this nation and in world missions (only 3% of new missionaries attempt to go to parts of the world that have never heard the gospel), this episode of 2Days Denarius examines the cause of this problem as a manifest lack of true commitment to prayer by the church and/or prayer focus on extra-biblical matters. The approach in dealing with this problem comes from looking back at a prayer by John Calvin from his commentary on the book of Daniel and dissecting what makes it a great prayer. Between reading Scripture (with focus on prayers in the Bible), reading the written prayers by heroic believers of the past, and being mentored by known prayer warriors in the church, Christians who want to grow in commitment to greater devotion in prayer can utilize these options to enhance their walk with God, pray for the church, this nation, and world missions, and perhaps, as a result, even make a lasting spiritual impact in these areas to reach the world for Christ. This lesson gives challenge to Christians to come out of their lethargy and fill the greatest need of this generation: an army of committed PRAY--ERS to stand in the gap in these days of intense spiritual warfare.

PAGANS IN THE PULPIT: The Stats Don't Lie
As Paul warned Timothy that in the end times, perilous days would come (2 Tim. 3:1). Regarding faith departure and failures in biblical knowledge we now appear to see, not only are people who attend church lacking a biblical worldview, but a major portion of ministers in this country suffering from the same malady. This episode of the 2Days Denarius focuses on a religious study produced by George Barna of the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University that appears to show major deficiencies of biblical knowledge in the form of a true Christian worldview among the majority of clergy and and those in other teaching levels of leadership in our churches today. This lesson presents and evaluates the statistical results of the study presented in an article by Anugrah Kumar in the Christian Post released on social media on May 16, 2022. This article is very revealing of the progressive and catastrophic shift in evangelicalism, moving it away from its traditional focus on biblical infallibility, authority, authenticity, and inerrancy. Along with this, there very much appears to be a clear lacking of biblical knowledge in how to approach the key events in our times in the areas of right to life, morality, faith practice, among other red flags and failures to step in and defend truth in our troubled times. There is no surprise here as even in Old Testament times, Jeremiah and other prophets warned Israel of their failure to be true to God's covenant. Instead, we see in Jeremiah 5 that the people wanted things their own way and loved that the prophets and priests served and taught in a way that made them happy in their sins. It seems very much like then, like now. Days like these call for revival. A true revival is one that would bring repentance and seeking forgiveness for our failures in the church of our times. Will this, and can it happen? That answer lies in God's hands, and in our prayers. 2Days Denarius is a non-profit Bible teaching ministry. Rev. Thomas believes in the Authority, Infallibility, Inerrancy, Authenticity of Scripture as our only rule of faith and practice. He is evangelical with roots in fundamentalism as well. Teaching the Bible in context and meaning developed from the passage in exegetical study is vital to teaching the truth as it is in Scripture. I make my best effort to achieve this goal. You may reach 2Days Denarius by email at email@example.com. Theme song "Most of Our Time" is used by permission of song's author and performer, Rev. Steve Hereford, pastor of the Eastport Baptist Church in Jacksonville, FL. Pastor Steve has four Scripture song albums that may be found under his name (Steve Hereford) on Spotify.

National Day of Prayer 2022
This is the third annual prayer podcast for the National Day of Prayer on the 2Days Denarius podcast channel. It is vital in our times for Christians to either come together or individually seek God on behalf of our nation and the church. The National Day of Prayer as we know today was set for by proclamation in 1983 by President Ronald Reagan. Nationally, it has its roots as declared by George Washington in 1775. This episode examines the prayer of Nehemiah in chapter one in the biblical book that bears his name. Here we learn about his time of fasting and mourning for the desperate state of his homeland, while he served as cupbearer for the king of Persia. His prayer included elements of adoration for God, confession of sin, and requests for the restoration of his homeland. Because of his faithfulness the king ultimately granted his request. Rev. Thomas, once again, leads listeners into a prayer time as well. 2Days Denarius is an evangelical Bible-based teaching ministry to help Christians be encouraged and grow in their faith walk with Jesus Christ. You can email the ministry at firstname.lastname@example.org. It will be great to hear from you!

The NEW SENSE of things!! DIVINE and SUPERNATURAL LIGHT Part 3
This episode of 2Days Denarius is the conclusion of the three-part Divine and Supernatural Light series. This phrase was coined by Jonathan Edwards as a description of salvation in a sermon he preached in the 1730s that demonstrated salvation to be a supernatural work of God with no additives. Edwards's experience was much like many of the evangelical conversions in his time, that included, strong, deep periods of conviction, a true calling of the Holy Spirit in the individual, an opportunity to receive Christ, and full regeneration, which is the Holy Spirit bringing new life to the our spiritual deadness - or a new sense of things, as Edwards described it. The Doctrine of Salvation (or Soteriology, as educators call) it, is vital to get right as it gets to the core of how we can have a relationship with God. Jesus said He is the way, the truth and the life in John 14:6. He added that no one can come to the father, but through Him. All three parts of this series are essential to understanding redemption that was accomplished for us and applied for the saved to follow Christ. Much of this true gospel message has been marred in our times, but it is only the way of the cross that leads home.

DIVINE and SUPERNATURAL Light Applied! Salvation Series Part 2
The first part of the Salvation Series dealt with man's sin problem and need of salvation from a source outside himself. Though man's spirit and will may be strong, it cannot open its own door to salvation or control its own destiny in the afterlife. That is because of the sin problem that plagues all mankind, stemming from Adam's sin in Genesis 3. This new podcast dives into how man needs and can come to salvation only by and through faith in Jesus Christ and Him alone. According to Scripture, there is only one Savior and way of salvation - and that is through Jesus Christ (John 3:16; 14:6; Acts 4:12, among other passages). It is vitally important, due to such great eternal consequences, that we understand and seek Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit to receive new life in Christ. This episode will explore that journey from darkness to light! Come on this journey and surely you will know if faith in Christ exists in you and how to come to faith in Christ if you do not know Him. Also, please share this podcast with others to help them come to faith in Christ as well! You can contact 2Days Denarius Ministry at firstname.lastname@example.org. I greatly look forward to hearing from listeners!

PRAYER FOR UKRAINE and Christian Vital Signs
In a short period of time, the world has become a very unsettled place. With war in Ukraine and Russia seemingly showing no signs of slowing or stopping in intensity, perhaps possibly even moving beyond Ukraine soon, it's time for Christians to not only pray for this situation, but to check our own spiritual wellbeing as we see the Day of the Lord approaching. This episode of 2Days Denarius focuses on Ukraine and Russia's advance in line with prophecy, along with some other signs of Christ's return from Scripture. In addition, many Christians may wonder what they should be doing with their lives in such an uncertain world as this. This episode goes in-depth on these matters and will help Christians identify what is real and true to the Word of God and what is fake. It is always good to ask and answer the "How Shall We Then Live" questions and this presentation will not disappoint. However, it will challenge its listeners to a closer walk with Christ to enable us to live our lives more effectively in this age. Finally, a prayer for Ukraine is provided in the last section of the video. If you enjoy listening to 2Days Denarius, please download, follow, and share these podcasts. They are meant for evangelism, spiritual growth in the Christian faith, and a sound learning experience for believers who are not receiving valuable teaching in their churches. 2DaysD fully supports the local New Testament, Bible-believing churches that also hold to the inerrancy, infallibility, and authority of Scripture.

Got a Sin Problem? Find the Divine and Supernatural LIGHT!
Welcome to Part 2 of the Salvation Series! The last episode focused on our sin problem and separation from God outside of a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. The Word of God is clear that all have sinned and fallen short of God's glory (Rom. 6:23). Given that, it's also clear that there had to be a remedy, and one outside of ourselves, to have our relationship with God restored once again. This is the heart of why God sent Jesus into the world to save His people from their sins (Matt. 1:21). The gospel message is clearly explained for us in the early verses of 1 Corinthians 15. That is, Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again the third day (All according to the Scriptures!). Yes, the Good News is clearly explained and was the message of the early saints that was once noted to have "turned the world upside down" in the First Century (See Acts 17:1-9). However, in our times our evangelical presentations are often empty of telling the lost about sin and separation from God and need for a Savior. In its place, many pastors, evangelists, and individuals are focusing on their individual testimonies instead of Scripture truth in evangelism, which will lead no one to Christ and keep the lost in their lost condition. This episode will help those who listen make a clear distinction between a true saving gospel presentation and those of today that leave the sin problem of man out. It also gives examples of current ministries that translate the gospel to a form of self-reformation, rather than true regeneration. Then it will provide true examples of salvation in the lives of Charles Wesley, Jonathan Edwards, John Newton, and Charles Finney. All of these came under deep conviction of sin and separation for significant period of time before the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit aided them to find faith in Christ. Charles Wesley's salvation experience is so wonderfully displayed in the great hymn, "And Can It Be? That I Should Gain." Some of those lyrics will be examined to demonstrate a true gospel saving, life changing experience that should be representative of all lost people who come to true faith in Jesus Christ. Those who may listen and come to faith in Christ, my ministry email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org I would greatly look forward to assisting you with the next step in your new life! 2Days Denarius has been granted permission by Pastor Steve Hereford of the Eastport Baptist Church in Jacksonville, FL, to use his wonderful Scripture song, "Most of Our Time," as the podcast's theme song.

This Is Clear: We AIN'T ALL THAT!
In this age of pride, arrogance, and narcissism, man's long war and rebellion against God continues. It seems in our age that the lost seem to hold on to their sin as a badge of honor. Yet, God's Word still declares, "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." Rom. 3:23 Sin has ultimate consequences in eternal separation from God that comes through rejection of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. This episode examines how "conversions" are occurring in the Evangelical church today. Are they real? What do they include? And what do they leave out? The first piece of this puzzle is to understand the biblical concept of sin and match how it is dealt with in the modern day church. Because we are sinners, we need a Savior, which God provided through His Son, Jesus Christ. But it is also vital that we know what we are saved from and to know the meaning of conviction of sin and the Holy Spirit's calling that enables one to receive Christ. This is the fist part of a new series on the plan of salvation as seen in Scripture. It focuses on man's sin problem. Listeners will hear of numerous modern examples of false conversions and revivals, as compared to those in prior centuries where people experienced true conviction of sin and salvation following. It is truly worth the listen, as those who realize they do not know Christ as Lord and Savior, will see the way to the cross. Part 2 of this series will focus on our remedy to the sin problem. As always, thank you to Pastor Steve Hereford for granting his gracious permission to use his Scripture song, "Most of Our Time" as the theme song for this 2Days Denarius podcast.

A Tale of Terrible and Terrific Spiritual Decisions
In line with emphasis on renewing our commitment to spiritual growth in 2022, there aren't many better topics to cover than how we can make sound spiritual decisions that enhance our spiritual walk and leave no doubt that we are following God's will for our lives. This episode of 2Days Denarius takes a close look at the events of Genesis 13 between Abram and his nephew Lot. What took place there turned out to be a decision of huge consequences not only personally for Lot and his family but historically as well for the children of Israel. In line with that, listeners will learn the decision making paradigms that can lead to devastating decision making in our lives, or ones that aid us in following through in our faith commitment to the Lord. The creator will also share some of his own stories on decision-making and the will of God. In addition, this podcast examines the spiritual decision making processes in the lives of entertainers Alice Cooper and Brian Welch of KORN, and actor Chris Tucker (who all claim to follow the Christian faith). For referral, Alice Cooper's story can be seen on YouTube, Servus Christi channel, episode titled, "Greg Laurie: Harvest of Deception." For further reading on decision making and the will of God, the podcast creator highly recommends John MacArthur's book, "Found: God's Will." The second book traditionally seen as a sound reference on this subject (and mentioned in this podcast) is "Decision Making and the Will of God" by Garry Friesen. Both books are available on Amazon. To contact the creator of 2Days Denarius, ministry email address is email@example.com. Thank you to Pastor Steve Hereford of the Eastport Baptist Church in Jacksonville, FL, for permission to use his song titled "Most of Our Time" as the podcast's theme song.

Hello 2022! Let's Forge Ahead in Spiritual Growth!
In this first episode of 2Days Denarius for the New Year, we will look at how to plan for spiritual growth, giver greater practice of the spiritual disciplines, develop the theme of Revival for 2022, and give a prayer for this new year. We will also look at Solomon's prayer of dedication in 2 Chronicles 6 as it develops a foundation and pattern for revival in Scripture and our world today. Our nation needs true revival. That is, one that is founded upon humility, confession of sin, prayer, and repentance. These are the biblical ingredients for true revival. Not the entertainment-based and other concoctions and man-produced false ones we often see today. If we want real spiritual growth, we must get ready to work harder and do our job as believers! Let's forge ahead and make a real spiritual difference in our world for 2022. This lesson also encourages its listeners to develop a Bible reading plan and an overall plan for spiritual growth in 2022. In this lesson there is a contribution by Dr. Kevin Carson, who wrote an excellent article on his website for which Christians can frame their spiritual growth plan around in 2022. His article is titled, "Four Spiritual Commitments that Will Impact Your New Year #OnThisSunday." It may be found on his kevincarson.com website. As always, 2Days Denarius is grateful to Pastor Steve Hereford of the Eastport Baptist Church in Jacksonville, FL, for granting 2DaysD permission to use his song "Most of Our Time" as the theme song for this podcast.
