Fear, it is the demonic force that binds us.  Fear has brought this country to a breaking point.  We have a massive racial problem in this country that needs to be addressed.  Black men are being killed by police officers and being found not guilty by the courts as they did the Klansmen of old.  Nate speaks to this and the great idea of love which cast out all fear in this latest podcast.

Happy Memorial Day, let us remember those who have since past on who served our country.  When was the last war in which our soldiers actually were sent to war to defend this nation?  1812?  WWII?  certainly not any of the modern conflicts in which rich white men sent our sons and daughters to die for their agenda.  Nate talks about this and much more.

In this episode of the Backyard Preacher Podcast Nate examines faith and works.  James says faith without works is dead.  Yet what are these works?  Is it right action?  Religious ritual?  Loving your neighbor?  These are all great, but we humans will always come up short.  The fact is we cannot please God through right action.  Being a "good" person; Jesus himself said "who is good?"  The problem is many of us try to please God through right action that we become infatuated with our religious belief, rituals, and deeds it creates a type of religious OCD.

Nate takes a look at Luke chapter 4.  Was Jesus really in a struggle with the devil, or was it his own ego after 40 days without food?  Either way Jesus learned that their was more important things in life than self pleasure and the "wants" of the world.  So forget yourself and start living a life of power!

Happy St Patrick's Day!  All you wannabe Irish people who just want another excuse to drink.  Please be safe out there!  OK, Nate takes on the division of flesh and Spirit, looking at the text from Luke chapter 8 which describes the transfiguration of Christ from an esoteric perspective.  Enjoy, and stay inspired!

Mar 3, 2017

Nate talks about the fight between the flesh and the Spirit.  The battle of our true selves and that of the illusion of ego which tries to take over our lives.  We succumb to pain then use a variety of vices based on our animalistic biology to place a bandage on a wound that can only be healed through Christ.

Nate often introduces the podcast with his line "This is not your mother's religious program we are not TBN, I will not ask for your money give it to someone who needs it."  So today Nate talks a little bit about money and ministry.  Although the greater portion of the show is focused on the spiritual awakening of Jesus and an awakening that we must also have as his followers.  Listen up and be blessed.  Please share!

Today Nate talks about what the singularity of Christianity that can bring us all together in unity as Christians, no matter your flavor.  We currently live in a divided country with a divided church.  The time for unity is now.  Listen and receive the guidance you need to live out a life of love and unity.

So many times we allow the grace of God to act silently upon our lives giving us feelings of guilt and remorse, when God is saying that no matter what you do, or have done my love for you is still the same.  Today be open to the grace of God in your life, you are loved and regardless of how you may feel about yourself God loves you and understands.

Nate talks about the first days of a Trump Presidency.  While he does not like Trump Nate encourages us to pray for the President.  Nate uses the text found in Mark 7:31-37 as an example of how we should reach out to God to have our ears opened in order for us to speak righteousness.  Let us do like the people of Decapolis, let us bring Trump to the throne room of God, allowing God to open his eyes and ears for the sake of the country.   

Jan 20, 2017
