prayerHOW CAN a group that professes to believe in an all-powerful, eternal creator God be so reluctant to admit that the supernatural realm exists and intrudes on our daily lives?

We invited Peter Goodgame, author of The Second Coming of the AntichristRed Moon Rising, and the online book The Giza Discovery, and John McMahon, host of The Iron Show on the Fringe Radio Network, to discuss the issue. We talked about manifestations of the Holy Spirit, how to discern lying signs and wonders, and the importance of these spiritual encounters in our Christian walk.

Derek and Sharon Gilbert will be at the Prophecy in the News Pikes Peak Prophecy Summit July 25-27, 2014 at the Marriott Hotel in Colorado Springs. Watch for information here.

Please join the discussion at the PID Radio Cafe, visit the VFTB Facebook page, and check out the great Christian podcasters at the Revelations Radio Network. Download a smaller, lower-fidelity version of the mp3 of this show by clicking here.


  1. It was such an honor to be on VFTB. As a show that I have listened to since it’s inception 7 years ago. Whatever else you can say about Johnny From the IRON SHOW; Let it be said that I am a loyal fan of View From The Bunker.


  2. When I feel it necessary, I can be critical of Derek; never believe it to be personal, however. I have great respect for both Derek, and Sharon Gilbert. Their Ministry
    is intact, and growing, and I could not be happier for them. They have my complete
    support, and appreciation.

      Thank you, Cassius, I appreciate that, and I’ve tried to take your comments in the spirit in which they are intended. Maybe my twenty years in sales has helped in that regard!

      As I mentioned in the program, I have to recognize that I don’t have all the answers, so I’m trying to be more gracious to those who hold different views. If they’re right, I might learn something; if they’re not, maybe a gentle reply will prevent my attitude from becoming a stumbling block.

  3. An accurate, insightful and pragmatic approach; it can be difficult to state, and even more difficult to hear, contrary opinions, but the Christian Broadcasters who have ‘poisoned that well’ over the years: Swaggart, Falwell, TBN, CBN, the Bakker fools, Masonic Robert Schuller, Oral Roberts and Billy Graham, Eddie Long, Creflo Dollar, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland and on, and on, and on, have pre-disposed Christians and Pagans alike to dread, and disregard, present ‘Reps’ who comes in that Name.

    I worked for Crawford Broadcasting who also claimed to be Christian, yet had no
    problem with completely disregarding every tenet, directive and admonishment
    delivered by Jesus. It can easily seem like we are all dishonest, hypocritical Tools,
    motivated by ego, and money-driven, in toto. Sorry if I seem abrasive, but I will,
    not and can not, sit idly by, as errors (in my opinion) are broadcast as facts, and
    are then compounded.

    I have no such concerns regarding VFTB, OR PID. That, alone, is an endorsement.

    My concerns are for other Listeners. I already know what I think, and believe.

    I, also, can be wrong.

  4. It seems counter intuitive but a person who can admit they are wrong or admit that they don’t have all the answers and especially say things like: “Thus far at least at this point this is my view.” – people like that actually command more trust and credibility than someone who thinks they have all the answers. People who are reluctant to lose a debate or an argument even if they know they are proven wrong will not want to give any ground because they feel like they will lose credibility. When in fact the opposite is true. This is a principle that my momma taught me from an early age.

  5. Enjoyed the interviews. Having been raised in the Pentecostal movement I can understand folks reluctance to seek what God has for us because of the “extremists”. Emotional response is a consequence of an encounter with God. Sadly, there are those who want to bask in the emotional high for the foreseeable future. We’re like rechargeable batteries. We need to use the power of God He places in us, and then get recharged for the next run. I like the comment, “We’re here to work,” on the dock, in the operating theatre, the classroom, or the studio.
