Dave Sanderson is an inspirational survivor, speaker, and author. His thoughts on leadership have made him an internationally sought-out speaker.

The last passenger off the back of the plane on that fateful day, he was largely responsible for the well-being and safety of others, risking his own life in frigid water to help other passengers off the plane.

Despite the hazards to himself, Sanderson thought only of helping others and emerged from the wreckage with a mission: to encourage others to do the right thing.

That experience profoundly changed his life and today he travels the globe sharing his inspirational and motivational leadership messages to help people make a difference in how they do business and live their lives.

Do you have many theological questions that nobody seems to be answering for you? You're not alone. Mike Heiser, our special guest today, has met many people who have questions that pastors and theologians don't have the answers to, or simply don't have the time to explain. Tune into today's episode of Are You Real to hear some of those questions and finally get some answers. 

Mike earned his PhD in Hebrew Bible and Semitic Languages at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  Before going to the UW-Madison, Mike earned an M.A. in Ancient History from the University of Pennsylvania (major fields were Ancient Israel and Egyptology), and another M.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (Hebrew Studies).  He also attended Dallas Theological Seminary.  Mike’s undergraduate degree is from Bob Jones University, but he also attended Bible college for three years.

 

Mike has an active ministry to people whose worldview is molded by occult, paranormal, and esoteric beliefs.  He observed that many who have adopted “alternative” worldviews were formerly traditional theists and Christians who left the faith when their questions on difficult passages and topics went unanswered, or when spiritual leaders failed to address experiences they had had.  Mike seeks to fill these gaps as a Christian scholar and has become well known in these circles through writing, speaking, and numerous radio appearances. 

 

What you'll hear in this episode:

  • A little bit about Mike Heiser and his past
  • When Mike really started to understand the Bible and what it says 
  • The first thing Mike taught that offended people
  • How mythology and pop culture ties into the Bible and Mike’s book “Supernatural”
  • Why are there so many “bad things” in our world?
  • What God’s “unseen hand” does
  • What is the “spiritual battle”?
  • What Mike would tell his younger self and why

Phillip Juarez was a normal person just like you and me until a terrible accident left him in the hospital. Phillip then turned to drugs and alcohol to try and fill up the empty spaces inside of him. After being arrested, and hurting many people, he began writing and rapping music, making a name for himself: Kilo Brown.

Phillip was arrested two more times before he finally started seeking God’s help. He was on his hands and knees, literally, begging for God’s forgiveness and guidance.

God started a fire in Phillip. He started making music again, this time, Christian music. He now goes on tour singing God’s word and working in the community.

If you are struggling, whether it’s with drug and alcohol, or something totally different, God is there for you, even when you can't see His hand. Sometimes it feels like everyone in the world has abandoned us, but we need to always know that God is here. Phillip Juarez is here on the show today talking about his journey and how God broken him down, then built him back up.

This week, let’s do something just a little bit different. For those of you who have been hanging out with the “Are You Real” podcast since the beginning, you might be familiar with a man by the name of Any Dietz. Andy first appeared on Episode 7, and he was able to share his heart for the nations and the way God has called him to live outside of his comfort zone. Andy’s passion for international missions is far reaching. He’s been to 43 different countries, and that has opened his eyes to God’s blessing for us here in the States.

But God’s purpose for Andy is bigger than just his heart for missions. Last time we talked, I promised that we would get some more details about a crazy situation that happened one night in Budapest. Andy survived a kidnapping, but the grace of God. It is an incredible story of survival, strength, and faith that he writes about in his book Kidnapped in Budapest. I can’t wait for you to hear more.

  • Experiencing gratitude from travels around the world.
  • How different cultures bring about new perspectives.
  • Spiritual impact of salvation through a kid to the leader of a nation!
  • Andy walks us through the story of his abduction.
  • Getting tangled with the Mafia.
  • The support on the home front in prayer and provision.
  • Psalm 121:7
  • Kidnapping and chaos are both used to bring people closer to God.
  • Andy’s call to find your specific purpose.
