WHKW_TBS01 - How to Be a Good Christian
If you are saved, it should be your desire to be a good Christian. This message will also help to teach us the importance of being a soulwinner. These lifestyles are not exclusive, but in fact are related to each other. Listen as Pastor McCracken teaches us from the Word of God.
WHKW_TBS02 - When it Seems Like God Doesn't Answer
Please open your bibles to Hebrews 11:24. This is where we will begin this lesson on how to handle things when it seems as if God is not answering our prayers. Hebrews 11 is known as the Faith chapter, but we can make four observations in this chapter, that could shed some light on the problems we all face.
WHKW_TBS03 - What Happens When a Christian Sins
Every honest Christian would admit that eventhough they are saved, they are still capable of sinning. Another truth is that when a person has become born again, sin is never the same as it used to be, before coming to Christ. Though we still sin, the command is unchanging for us not to sin anymore. Get ready for some biblical instruction, from the books of Exodus and 1 John, that will help us to avoid sin and explain to us what happens to a sinning Christian.
WHKW_TBS04 - Solving Life's Problems the Christian Way
The truth is that we all have problems, but what do we do to solve them? God has provided mankind with an instruction manual for living in this world & He has made provision for us so that we wouldnâ€™t have to bear lifeâ€™s burdens alone. If you are going through a difficult time, then stay tuned as Pastor Allan teaches us how to solve lifeâ€™s problems the Christian way.
WHKW_TBS05 - Tears
Todayâ€™s message is about tears. Tears are something in which we can all relate. They are common to all mankind. They do not discriminate against any particular class of people either. We all experience them. However, the truth of the matter is that when we go through the tough times, we are not alone. We have a God who is able to deliver us out of all situations, & we have a Savior who died for what those tears represent. So if you are experiencing the tears in life right now, please stay with us. Pastor Allan will show us from the bible how Jesus can take away the sting of sin & the tears that follow.
WHKW_TBS06 - Looking for Jesus
Today, Pastor Allan will be teaching on the subject of â€œFinding Jesusâ€. Many people are looking for Jesus, but they donâ€™t always know where to look for Him. During our time together, Pastor Allan will show us where we can find Jesus, through a few familiar passages in the Scriptures. So for starters, please open your bibles to the Gospel of John, chapter 12 & verse 20 & listen in as Pastor Allan teaches us from the Word of God.
WHKW_TBS07 - Understanding Prophecy
Today, Pastor Allan will be teaching us about understanding biblical prophecy. So if you can, please open your bibles to the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 24, verses 1-8. The bible is full of prophetic words that sometimes can be confusing even to the most knowledgeable of bible students. But if you want to get the most out of the Holy Scriptures, then having an understanding of the art & science of biblical interpretation is a must. So stay tuned as Pastor Allan shows us how to understand prophecy.
WHKW_TBS08 - Jesus Does it All
Today, Pastor Allan will teach us how Jesus does it all. To start, please turn in your bibles to Psalm 34, & beginning at verse 1. You see, God wants to show us how He can do it all through His words in this psalm. These verses tell us that God saves us out of our troubles. They also tell us that God keeps us & protects us, & furthermore, they teach us that God can satisfy all our needs. So please stay tuned as Pastor Allan further explores this blessed psalm & learn how Jesus Does it All.
WHKW_TBS09 - Understanding God
Today, Pastor Allan will teach us some ways in which we can understand God by reading Psalm 103 & verses 13 & 14. There are many influences in the world today that shape our views & opinions, especially when it comes to the nature of God. If you pay attention to popular culture, or the media at large, then you will undoubtedly get a distorted view of who God truly is. The good news, however, is the fact that God has written a book that teaches us the truth about Him. This book is the Holy Bible & it is the final word. So keep your dial set as Pastor Allan helps us to better understand the one true God.
WHKW_TBS10 - Fruits of Repentance
Today, Pastor Allan will teach us about the fruits of repentance. Repentance consists of a true sense of one's own guilt and sinfulness; turning from it to God; and seeking to live a holy life by walking with Him. Repentance is not just feeling sorry or remorseful, but being so troubled in your own heart that you begin to live by Godâ€™s standards, according to His Word. These fruits of repentance are visible ways that demonstrate that a person has actually changed. So please open your bibles to Luke, chapter 13 & get ready as Pastor Allan teaches us from Godâ€™s Word.
WHKW_TBS11 - Lessons from a Church in Greece
Today, Pastor Allan will be teaching us a few lessons from a church in Greece. To begin please open your bibles to the book of Acts, chpt 18 & verse 1. Here we read about the Apostle Paul coming to the city of Corinth. This large & prosperous town was being ruled by immorality & idolatry, with it seeping into the church that Paul had started there. To correct these problems, Paul wrote a letter to the Corinthian Christians discussing spiritual matters, like speaking in tongues & the rampant degradation of the city. So stay tuned as Pastor Allan further explores these lessons from the Apostle Paul.
WHKW_TBS12 - It Shall Not be So Among You
Today, Pastor Allan is bringing us a message about Christian conduct in todayâ€™s word, titled, â€œIt Shall Not be So Among Youâ€. To begin, please open your bible to the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 20. As we all know, the conduct of society is generally in contradiction to the Word of God. Unfortunately, there are too many Christians behaving in the same way. The Bible says that we are to be set apart from the world in all that we say, think, & do & not be conformed to it. So please stay tuned as Pastor Allan teaches us how to be separated from the world.
WHKW_TBS13 - Facing the Giants
Today, Pastor Allan is bringing us a message from 2nd Samuel, Chapter 21, and beginning at verse 15. This message is about â€œFacing the Giantsâ€ in our lives. All Christians battle against the subtle & ever present giants of this world, trying to turn our minds & eyes away from the Lord. Though we may get the victory on occasion, the giants have a way of coming back. We must watch & pray because we never know when another giant is on the horizon. Sometimes we can not win these battles all alone. Sometimes we need help. But thank the Lord that He is on the throne & there is help available to His children. God promises to never leaves us of forsake us, the battle belongs to Him. So get ready as Pastor Allan begins todayâ€™s message.
WHKW_TBS14 - Lessons on Freedom & Bondage
Todayâ€™s message is titled â€œLessons on Freedom & Bondage.â€ The basis for this message can be found in the Gospel of John Chapter 8, & beginning at verse 30. Typically we think of bondage in the sense of physical, or political, but today, Pastor Allan wants to open our minds up to the spiritual & moral bondage that has captured so many people in this world. So please stay tuned as todayâ€™s program gets underway.
WHKW_TBS15 - Signs of Maturity
Today, Pastor Allan has a message for us on the Signs of Maturity. To begin, please open your bibles to the first chapter of the book of James. The book of James gives us many practical & useful applications for Christian living. This epistle was originally written to the Christian Jews living abroad throughout the Roman Empire. James knew that many of these young Christians needed some written guidelines on how to live, so he recorded what God had inspired. So please stay with us as Pastor Allan begins todayâ€™s message.
WHKW_TBS17 - Skeptics Welcome
Pastor Allan will be teaching us today on the subject of â€œSkeptics Welcomeâ€. If you can, please open up your bibles to the Gospel of John, chpt. 20, & starting at verse 19. Todayâ€™s message begins with the account of the Apostle Thomas & his skepticism of the risen Christ. Thomas is most famous for being a â€œdoubterâ€, but you see, God welcomes the skeptic, or doubter, to bring forth their questions. There is however, a distinction between doubters. Some doubt because they donâ€™t really want to know the truth, & then there are those who are honestly seeking answers to their questions. Those skeptics that are honest & genuine are welcomed by the Lord because reasonable answers exist for those who are sincere. So please stay with us as Pastor Allan gets underway.
WHKW_TBS19 - How to Be Happy
Our message for today is based off of the life of Joseph, as found in the book of Genesis, chapter 50 & starting at verse 15. Here, Pastor Allan McCracken will be teaching us some practical ways on How to be Happy, as demonstrated by Joseph. If you read the account in Genesis, you will find that Joseph was never a complainer, nor was he ever bitter despite the circumstances in his life. He was sold into slavery as a child. He was falsely accused of raping a woman, & he was falsely imprisoned for many years. The truth is, that by the worldâ€™s standards, Joseph deserved to be an angry individual, but praise be to God, that he trusted the Lord. Through the Lord, Joseph was able to be happy in every situation. So, please stay tuned as Pastor Allan teaches us How to be Happy.

WHKW_TBS23 - A Teaching on Divorce, Part 1
If you can, please open up your bibles to the Gospel of Mark, Chapter 10, & beginning at verse 1. Today, Pastor Allan will be digging into a paradoxical teaching on the subject of divorce.

For todayâ€™s broadcast, Pastor Allan will be continuing the message he began last time. This message is titled, â€œHallowed Be Thy Name.â€ The term hallowed is associated with the word holy, & this word "holy" is often interpreted to mean "righteous" or "pure" or something similar. The basic concept of the word holy, however, is that of "apartness" and "distinction." You see, the idea of holiness is a common description of God's unique power and position as the sovereign Lord of the universe. He is distinct from everything else. By definition one can say that God's holiness means that He is set apart. Specifically, he is distinct and separate from all created beings and false gods. So, to learn more, please stay with us as Pastor Allan teaches us about the Holiness of Godâ€™s Name.
WHKW_TBS52 - Thy Kingdom Come, Part 1

Well todayâ€™s broadcast centers on the phrase, â€œThy Will Be Done.â€ You see, there are millions of people, in this world, who have repeated these words without any knowledge of what Godâ€™s will is.

WHKW_TBS57 - In Earth as it is in Heaven, Part 1
Todayâ€™s broadcast puts us right in the middle of Pastor Allanâ€™s series on the Lordâ€™s Prayer. Our focus for todayâ€™s message is centered on the phrase, â€œIn Earth as it is in Heaven.â€ One of the reasons for this series on the Lordâ€™s Prayer is to help us to take practical applications out of Godâ€™s Word. You see, so many times we say this prayer, but our hearts are not always in it. So how is Godâ€™s will done on Earth as it is in Heaven? For this to happen, the will of God must be done in our individual hearts & lives. If we chose to live according to His will, & not our own, then this world would see Christianity in its truest form. To begin, please open up your bibles to the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 6 & verse 9.
WHKW_TBS58 - In Earth as it is in Heaven, Part 2
Todayâ€™s broadcast continues the message that Pastor Allan began last time. Our focus is on the phrase, â€œIn Earth as it is in Heaven,â€ as found in the Lordâ€™s Prayer. Our program begins with the truth that we often miss out on Godâ€™s best for our lives because of the desire to do our own will, rather than that of the Father. Then Pastor Allan shares the story of a Pakistani potter that demonstrates how Godâ€™s will is done in us & through us, in order to change the world for His glory. So please stay with us as Pastor Allan continues his message â€œIn Earth as it is in Heaven.â€
