A documentary claims that Moses is indeed the author of the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Moses would have been literate; he would have had Hebrew in an alphabet with it in order to be able to write these five books of the beginning of the Old Testament, the Torah. How important was the development of Hebrew then into an alphabetic language in the course of history?

DJ: I would go so far as to say God sovereignly introduced this into human civilization and it would be impossible to over state the importance of an alphabetic language. In fact, the first two letters of the Hebrew alphabet are Aleph and Bet, which was where we get the term alphabetic language even for our own alphabetic language of English.

In fact in the movie he points out that if you were to write the Torah, the Pentateuch in Egyptian hieroglyphics it would be many many times longer maybe dozens or hundreds of times longer than it currently is. So the alphabetic language reduced for example in English to 26 letters, Hebrew even less than that. You’re able to write hundreds of different words in an alphabet.

When you get to Deuteronomy chapter 6 which is after 40 years in the wilderness wonderings Moses tells the children of Israel to write these things down and to have them with them. So that means that the entire nation of Israel or at least a large percentage was already literate which would only have been possible through an alphabetic language.

JD: How important do you think it is for us to accept the mosaic authorship of the Torah and the Biblical record concerning the timing of the Exodus in history itself?

DJ: Well in John chapter 5 Jesus said that if you had believed Moses you would believe me because he wrote about me. So Jesus quoted and believed that Moses was the author of the Pentateuch. The Pentateuch is quoted hundreds of times throughout the New Testament. And both the Old Testament authors, the Prophets and the Apostles all believe that Moses was the author of the Pentateuch and it lays the foundation for everything we understand about the Bible from the creation through the establishment of the nation of Israel, God’s purposes in history. Everything builds upon what Moses recorded.

JD: David James with his Bible in his hand as he explained why the authorship of the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament is so important.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

This movie review by David James on the documentary, The Moses Controversy is a must see movie. But at the same time please do not forget that God’s word is absolute on the authorship of the entire Bible not only the first five books of God’s holy word, that’s II Timothy 3:16. All scripture is given by God.

Russia and China are a clear and present danger to the United States today

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Let's go now to the clear and present dangers that you have been able to determine and your team, talk to us about that a bit.

BM: Clear and present danger that was a title that an author used years ago for a fictional portrayal of a threat posed during the Cold War. I would argue that it’s a clear and present danger today given that we have two primary advisories one in the Pacific and one in Europe. Of course that’s Russia and Vladimir Putin and his building up of a modern very sophisticated, very capable military pouring a line share of his discretionary money into building a very very capable military, one that is capable as ours in many ways. And of course when we aren’t there he has the opportunity like a fox in a hen house.

Now in the East of course you’ve seen President Xi Jinping who is playing games with us in the South China Sea declaring that his sovereign territory intimidating the Japanese, manipulating Kim Jong-un of North Korea and of course using the Belt Road Initiative which he started in 2013 to spread now to 123 nations around the world. He’s kind of like peanut butter spread hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars in infrastructure and used predatory loans basically to build up a client states, every single continent. You know we’ve seen the Chinese actions and they’re very predatory.

JD: Colonel Bob Maginnis from the Pentagon with details to America’s clear and present dangers today.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Bob’s report reveals two superpower nations that he says are a clear and present danger to America today. These two world powers are mentioned in the prophetic passages of God’s word. Russia is the Magog of Ezekiel 38:2 and the leader of the Islamic States that will endeavor to destroy the Jewish State of Israel in the first 6 months of the Tribulation period. Then at the end of the Tribulation period the last 6 months the Kings of the East as foretold in Revelation 16:12 will lead all the nations of the world at that time to Jerusalem to join with the Antichrist and his fight against the return of Jesus Christ in the last 6 months of that Tribulation period. Both Russia and China are a clear and present danger to America today. These prophetic scenarios will all play out in the Tribulation period which is coming soon.
