  • If People Do Not Know the Bible, They Cannot Know God October 14, 2019
    You’ve noticed it, haven’t you? It’s hard to miss. Whether in movies, TV programs, or music, we rarely see people and stories from the Bible referenced as often as we once did. Even among unbelievers, it used to be respectable, even desirable, to quote positively from the Bible. Just think about how many times Shakespeare quoted from the Geneva Bible. But no […]
  • A False Church October 14, 2019
    Martin Luther initially hoped that the Roman Catholic Church would reform from within, but when it would not, he concluded that it was a false church. In this brief clip, W. Robert Godfrey examines some of Luther’s harsh words for Rome. This Reformation Month, watch a short video every day on the history and insights of the Protestant Reformation. And don […]

  • Haystack Prayers October 15, 2019
    Samuel Mills and four of his friends often gathered together to pray for God to send people into the world to share the good news of Jesus. One August day in 1806, after returning from their prayer meeting, they got caught in a thunderstorm and took refuge in the shelter of a haystack. Their weekly prayer gathering then became known as the Haystack Prayer Me […]

C2TV ministry is designed to strengthen your spiritual walk. This ministry newsletter began in 1999, first known as the Family Tree Ministry. The goal is to be a connection builder, serving as a spiritual connection between people and matters of faith. Our mission is simple: Connecting men and women to life-changing faith in Jesus – encouraging them to impact their community with His values, ethics and love. In the age of technology the newsletter has transformed into a blog with many more features that the old paper format couldn't provide. In November 2012, The Family Tree Ministry was renamed to "Connect to the Vine - (C2TV)" based on the Book of John, Chapter 15, where we are told to remain connected to Christ. In October 2016, this blog was renamed to "Connecting Champions to the Vine - C2TV." This change came about with the adding of the ADVOCARE bar at the top of the blog site. Originally focused on a ministry outreach to family members, C2TV has expanded to reach all those whom we come into contact with. Our prayer is that this blog becomes a means of illuminating God's work in our culture and encouraging one another to stand firm in Him! At the heart of the spiritual journey is the understanding that it is a journey. None of us are perfect. Once we become believers, we are not expected to achieve instant spiritual maturity. Rather, the Christian life is a process involving both our attention (2 Corinthians 7:1) and God’s work in us (Philippians 1:6). And it has more to do with opportunity and intentionality than with age (1 Timothy 4:12).

Can you imagine a world in which you would never lose your car keys or wallet? Or have them stolen?

Can you imagine a world in which you would never have to stand in line at the grocery store? Or the airline ticket counter? Or TSA?

Can you imagine a world in which you would never have to worry about having your identity stolen when shopping online? Or your credit cards accessed by hackers?

Can you imagine a world in which you would never have to worry about filling out tax forms? Or keeping track of receipts?

Can you imagine a world in which you would never have to worry about your grandmother falling and not being able to summon help? Or a heart attack or a stroke dropping you before you could call 911?

You don’t have to imagine.

That world is here.

All of these things are now possible, or will soon be possible, because of the microchip.

And the incredible convenience and safety the microchip promises will be possible because of The System.

The System will link all of the services and protections the citizens of the world could ever want or need and automatically provide them to the bearer of the microchip.

For a world that worships at the altar of “convenience,” The System will be the ultimate servant.

For a world that is rapidly descending into fear, The System will be the ultimate protector.

And that is how the Antichrist and the False Prophet will get billions of people to take the Mark of the Beast.

It will promise the convenience and safety we all crave.

Does that sound like the plot line for a science-fantasy movie coming soon to your local theater? Well, it’s not.

The technology to accomplish everything I have just described is already available. Granted, much of it is in the rudimentary stages, but we all know from experience that once a technology is invented, its perfection and utilization often follows at blinding speed.

What’s more, the Bible prophets predicted that in the final days of this Age of Grace, knowledge (technology) would increase exponentially in both breadth and speed.

For the Mark of the Beast System to work as it must, it will require a cashless world and participation by most of its people.

Daily, the governments of the world call for the abolition of physical cash as the world’s currency. They are joined by corporations, banks, intellectuals, terrorism experts, drug trafficking experts, organized crime prosecutors, and even public health officials.

And that time is closer than you may think. Today, the world’s monetary structure is no longer based on gold, silver, or even boxes of paper bills stashed in the vaults of banks or national treasuries. The zeroes and ones of computer code already serve as the world’s true currency.

Do you doubt that people will willingly accept a microchip implanted in their hand to receive the conveniences and safety The System will provide?

Last week in Wisconsin, a small firm offered to implant a microchip in the hand of any employee who chose to accept it. The payoff? The employee would no longer need an ID card to enter the building, a password to access the computer system, or cash or credit card to purchase items from the company break room.

None of those activities sound too taxing or inconvenient, do they? Yet almost half of the 85 employees chose to have the chip implanted in their bodies in return for the basic and very limited “convenience” it offered.

How can they refuse when the Mark of the Beast System offers lavish, almost unlimited, convenience and safety?

The Bible says they won’t.

Also on this week’s program, I’ll discuss what Plato called in 488 BC, “the ship of state.”

Right now, the United States Ship of State is leaking — badly.

Not since the infamous “White House Plumbers” has the nation faced as critical an internal threat as it does right now because of the incessant, criminal leaking of sensitive information by individuals across our national government.

This is not the work of patriots, but traitors. The U.S. government is at war with itself. And that makes the world more dangerous for everyone.

Finally, this week I want to tell you about what I believe is the first and worst of the doctrine of demons: Legalism.

In Hebrew, the word for “Satan” means “Adversary.” In his role as “god of this age,” Satan conducts a relentless, well-planned strategy to blind men’s minds to the truth about God and how to know Him.

One of his most effective tools is “legalism.” That is, seeking to live for God by the principle of Law. It is the dent in your armor at which Satan will chip away until he has a hole big enough to drive a truck through.

Satan knows that a personal faith-walk with God is based upon the principle of “grace” instead of “law.” So his goal is to slowly lead even mature believers into a sense that what was begun in faith must be perfected by the flesh. To trade “grace” for “law.”

He constantly seeks to keep unbelievers away from “grace.” For those who have already come to Christ, he seeks to erase “grace” from your thoughts and beliefs. Satan is perfectly happy with the believer striving to live by the “law.”

Don’t fall prey to the deceptions of the Adversary. Trust your salvation to the only one who can actually save you — Jesus.
