Dave Benoit trusted Christ as Savior in 1972 after leading a rebellious teenage life. He went to Bible college and graduated with a degree in church ministries. Dave entered the ministry as a youth pastor and was also a club director for a time with Word of Life. In 1984 he established Glory Ministries as an evangelist. His early ministry emphasis was on exposing the truth regarding the damaging effects of rock music including its violence and occult related tendencies. For decades Dave has researched the occult and the New Age movement to show how Satan in subtly gaining entrance into our families and churches.
The Bible talks about a time of lawlessness and a lawless individual. Dave pointed to end-times prophecy that communicates that when the lawless one is revealed, Christians will be taken out in the rapture. Nonetheless, this lawless one has to come out of lawlessness.
For example, Jim pointed out that if our society honored laws and someone would come along who is lawless, people would demand that such an individual should be locked up. On the other hand, if a society is marked by lawlessness, they would actually accept someone who is indeed, lawless.
Dave noted that according to the Bible, in the last days, nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom (Matthew 24). Nation means ‘ethnos’. That translates to ‘ethnics’. So he doesn’t believe we’ll see Russia against America or Germany against France. Instead, he believes the breakdown will be an inward or ethnic one, with division taking place among ethnic groups so that the house won’t stand (Mark 3:24-25). Jim then added that we’re seeing this happen in Spain and Germany.
Jim also brought to listener attention an example from USA Today that hits much closer to home. While parts of the world fight against Islamic terrorism, President Obama is taking steps toward making Islam a new racial category. The race would be Middle Eastern-North African. The article went on to note how his change would create, ‘…the biggest realignment of federal racial definitions in decades’.
Dave explained that in order to establish Islamic Shariah, you have to destroy our system of law. One way Dave described that’s being used to help this process along is the conversion of inmates in our prisons to Islam. 1 out of 3 African-American inmates in U.S. prisons converts to Islam during their incarceration. However, it isn’t just African-Americans. He quoted a Huffington Post report indicating that an estimated 35,000-40,000 inmates become converts to Islam each year.
So how can the presidential candidates talk about radicalization of our youth as being fed by the Internet when our government is paying Imam’s in our prisons to convert prisoners to Islam? Now add to that President Obama’s prisoner release. How many of them aren’t afraid of our legal system? Won’t this feed the lawlessness in our nation?
As this Crosstalk continues, Dave comments on other factors adding to lawlessness. They include the drug factor; how some see criminal background checks and U.S. citizenship requirements as a barrier to allowing racial and ethnic minorities to become part of law enforcement; the promotion of transgenderism and much more.
