This past week was a fun one. We had the pleasure of hosting Abraham Hillel, our guide for the upcoming Israel tour.
Abraham has guided Israel tours for many years and is a prolific student of the biblical, archeological, and geographical history of the Holy Land.
Although I referred to Abraham on the broadcast as an Israeli “historian”, he came to me privately to say that he is not a “professor” of all things Israeli, just a man who loves his country and wants to share its rich visual and spiritual treasures with those who visit.
We learned something else interesting about Abraham while he was here. We had lunch as Los Jalapeños in Carrollton — and he likes Tex-Mex!
Our broadcast visits with Abraham were educational and very enlightening as to what we can expect weather-wise in the month of February, and as to any danger that might be inherent in a visit (you will have to listen—click below—to find out).
Concerning those who will be touring with us, Abraham seemed to want to make something very clear:
He believes that those who travel with us will not “choose” to make the trip, but instead will be “chosen” to do so. Now, there’s a think-about-it statement.
As we ended the recording of the program with Abraham, I felt like he had much more to say. So I suggested that we do a second program with him. Which we did.

We now return to our normal programming:
That’s the question from Steve in Roanoke, Virginia.
Listen to the answer from Bob Christopher and Richard Peifer.
Nine-year-old Aliya called from the Bronx with concern over the spiritual component of facing hard tests in school, and wonders if there is some spirit at work to distress her like with King Saul.
If there is anything that underscores more perfectly why it is absolutely vital for Basic Gospel to be on the air, live, every day, I don’t know what it is.
In this call, Denise from Carmichael, California, describes the frustration and worry of being unsure of her salvation.
Be sure to tell a friend about Basic Gospel and Inside the Studio.
Until next Saturday, have a great week, everybody!
