The Apostle Paul concludes by saying, take the Helmet of Salvation and the Sword of the Spirit. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with the American Pastors network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. The salvation helmet adorns and protects. It’s the hope and joy of salvation giving confidence in battle and making life bearable in trials. The Sword of the Spirit’s the Word of God and our offensive weapon - used by the Believer but empowered by the Spirit. It’s powerful, absolute, edifying, rebuking, encouraging, never changing. – a solace in storms a light in the night. More powerful than the devil’s schemes and demonic deception, the Sword of the Spirit prevails. Will you put on the whole armor of God with us at Stand in the Gap Radio and TV?

Thursday, June 23, 2022 - The Armor of God Series: The Shield

June 23, 2022

In Ephesians 6:16, the Apostle Paul says that above all, to stand against the Devil’s schemes, we must pick up and use the shield of Faith. This Faith shield is perhaps the most important piece of defensive armor against the fiery darts of the Wicked One because it’s versatile, mobile, and capable of protecting the entire body. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer, President of the American Pastors Network with another Stand in the Gap Minute. Faith is that unswerving Trust in God to do all He says He’ll do. Protection from the fiery darts – those temptations from the Devil, the enticements to the sins of blasphemous thoughts, unbelief, the sudden urging to do wrong or entertain sinful thoughts is what only true Faith can protect against. These fiery darts like speeding arrows come suddenly and from unexpected places. They pierce and penetrate and can set the soul on fire. How’s your faith Shield?

June 20, 2022

In Eph 6:10, the apostle Paul commanded Believers to Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. The reason was clear.

June 17, 2022

Fathers, teach your children gratefulness to God. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer, with the American Pastors’ Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. In Joshua chapter 4, God instituted memorials.

Thursday, June 16, 2022 - Father's Day Series: The Model Father

June 16, 2022

Father’s Day’s a great time to consider God’s role as Father. As a father of six and grandfather of 14, I’ve thought much about my role, and this I’ve learned. The more we men emulate God –the heavenly Father, the better the husband and father we’ll be. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer, with the American Pastors Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. As our fatherhood model, God’s the wise Father. He’s the Great Counselor and Comforter, just, kind, merciful, and patient. He’s the Instructor, Guide, Protector and Shield. He firmly disciplines but does so in love. He loves so much, He gave His son – the perfect sacrifice - to save our souls. He’s the humble servant, yet the greatest leader. He’s the model – in every way – of what an earthly father should be. Fathers, grandfathers, how much do you resemble God the Father in your home? Fathers, join with us at stand in the Gap radio and TV and be God’s face in the home. Stand with us at American Pastors Network dot net

Tuesday, June 14, 2022 - Father's Day Series: God's Face in the Home

June 14, 2022

Father’s Day’s a great time to consider God’s expectation for fathers. As a father of 6 and grandfather to 14, I’ve thought much about my role and that fathers create our children’s first image of God. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with the American Pastors Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. Men, are we demonstrating that God’s faithful, loving, patient and kind? Is our discipline consistent and just? Are our children learning God’s protection and provision of needs? Does our love for our wives model Christ’s love for the Church? Do we teach the fear of God in our home by living in the fear of God ourselves? Do we focus on character building in our children to live and think like Christ so His character and nature will be seen through them? Imagine the impact in our homes and our culture if we did?

Monday, June 13, 2022 - Father's Day Series: Speak Up, Fathers!

June 13, 2022

Where are the fathers? Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with the American Pastors Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. A generation ago, the Supreme Court defied the God of heaven and declared legal the murder of our babies - and our fathers were silent. When the 10 Commandments were declared to be poison to our children’s minds - our pastors were silent. When the Courts and Culture continue to attack God’s model for family by redefining marriage and human sexuality, why is there such continuing silence? At APN, we believe that God’s judgment on our nation is in part because fathers and pastors a generation ago refused to oppose evil and actively resist tyranny. The question is, what will our pastors and we as fathers do now? As Mordecai said to Esther of old, if we are silent now, evil will prevail and freedom lost. Fathers, join with us at stand in the Gap radio and TV and resist evil. This is no time to be silent. Stand with us at American Pastors Network dot net

Thursday, June 9, 2022 - Signs of the Times Series: Witnessing More

June 9, 2022

Transcript: When is the last time you have shared how Jesus changed your life with someone else? For many of us, it has been far too long, but Scripture challenges us to talk about our new life in Christ even more as we face the last days. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with another Stand in the Gap Minute. As the apostle Paul addressed the struggles he faced, he taught in Acts 20:24, “I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.” Paul was changed from darkness to light and was willing to share his faith with others. God may place someone in your path today who needs to hear the story of how you have been changed, and how God can change them. Discover more at American Pastors Network dot net.

Wednesday, June 8, 2022 - Signs of the Times Series: Looking Up

June 8, 2022

Transcript: Do the negative headlines and actions around you get you down? If so, you’re not alone. Many feel troubled by the cares of this life, but Scripture offers a different response, teaching us to look up for Christ’s return. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with another Stand in the Gap Minute. In Revelation 22, the apostle John concluded his heavenly vision of the last days. He saw both the coming judgments and the ultimate outcome of Christ’s coming, along with the new heavens and the new earth. What was his response? He said, “Come, Lord Jesus!” As believers, we can face the struggles of the last days with an eternal perspective. Why? Because we know our final destination! Don’t live in discouragement today. Look ahead, like John, to our future home in heaven. We may face discouragement, but God is with us, and will be with us for eternity. Discover more at American Pastors Network dot net.

Tuesday, June 7, 2022 - Signs of the Times Series: Joy in the Last Days

June 7, 2022

Transcript: Many people live like God designed the last days to scare us. But nothing’s further from the truth! Jesus gave us signs of the times to prepare us, not with gloom, but with joy, not with stress but with anticipation. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with another Stand in the Gap Minute. As Christians, we can be tempted to avoid talking about the end times, partly because they are the days of God’s wrath against sin and the Devil. But in Matthew 25, Jesus told the parable of the talents to encourage us to use our gifts to serve Him. Why? Jesus said it was to enter “the joy of your master.” The Lord’s given us abilities, resources, and opportunities to serve Him with joy, making the most of every moment until He returns. Don’t be like the servant who hid his money in the ground! Invest what God have given you for eternal impact today. Discover more at American Pastors Network dot net.

Monday, June 6, 2022 - Signs of the Times Series: Responding to the Signs

June 6, 2022

Transcript: It’s often said that many people spend more time planning an earthly vacation than they do their eternal home! Since the signs speak so clearly that we’re in the very last days, shouldn’t we be very serious about eternity? Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with another Stand in the Gap Minute. In Matthew 25, Jesus told a story about 10 young women preparing for their wedding. Five were prepared – 5 were not. The unprepared missed the wedding and their eternal home in heaven. Jesus used the story to teach us to be watchful since we don’t know the hour of His coming yet we can know the season. If Jesus returned this moment, would you be ready? If not, what should you be doing differently? Don’t wait. The time for change is now. Being watchful, prepared and excitedly anticipating the Return of the Bridegroom for the Church is important. Living like the Bride of Christ now until He comes is essential. Discover more at American Pastors Network dot net.

Thursday, June 2, 2022 - Memorial Day Series: True Heroes - Great in Truth

June 2, 2022

Transcript: Heroes in God’s eyes are needed today more than ever. The prophet Jeremiah was a hero who couldn’t be silent on truth. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with the American Pastors Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. Jeremiah said, ‘when I rebuked the people because of their sins, they ridiculed God and made fun of me. So, I said, I won’t talk of God any longer - but I couldn’t stand being quiet because God’s word became a burning fire shut up in my bones. So, I spoke more boldly of the LORD because He was with me.” In Jeremiah’s day, the culture’ d forgotten God and rejected His Word. The people were greedy and idolatrous. Unrepentant and evil in heart, God’s judgment was imminent. Calling the people back to God and His word was Jeremiah’s job. The results were up to God. The same is true today. Join with us at Stand in the Gap Radio and TV in calling America back to God. Go to American Pastors network dot net and stand with us for Truth.
