Category: A View From The Bunker

Derek P. Gilbert hosts A View From the Bunker. He also hosts SkyWatchTV, a Christian television program that airs on several national networks, and co-hosts SciFriday, a weekly television program that looks at science news with his wife, author and analyst Sharon K. Gilbert.

He formerly hosted The Drive, the #1 rated afternoon talk radio program in mid-Missouri, and launched P.I.D. Radio with Sharon in early 2005, making it one of the first podcasts on the Internet.

He’s a Christian, a husband and father, and an author. He’s in his early 50s, prefers glasses to contacts, and sings barbershop, an a capella style of distinctly American music. He most recently hit the high notes for RingTime, a barbershop quartet from Coles County, Illinois.

In the years since earning his degree in Economics, Derek has worked as a Top 40 radio disc jockey (he was once world famous in Peoria), a real estate salesman, the manager of a tuxedo shop, and a salesman of steel found in machines, buildings, power plants, and oil rigs all over the world.

Derek has written two novels, Iron Dragons and The God Conspiracy. You can find out more about them at Derek’s personal website. He’s also a contributing author to the non-fiction books When Once We Were a Nation, Blood on the Altar, I Predict: What 12 Global Experts Believe You Will See by 2025, and God’s Ghostbusters.

Born in Chicago, just a long home run from Wrigley Field, Derek’s radio career took him from Peoria and Chicago in the Midwest, to Philadelphia out east, and then south to Little Rock before finally bringing him back to the Midwest.

Derek’s interests include reading, Christian apologetics, rooting for the Cubs, unraveling conspiracy theories, and scratching the chief of Homeyard Security, Sam T. Dachshund.

Derek has always been fascinated by the way things work and how things got to be the way they are. It was his study of evidence for the authenticity of the New Testament documents that awakened him to the battle raging around us.

It is this battle that inspires him.

VFTB 371: Laura Maxwell – Out of Spiritualism and into the Light

FASCINATION WITH the unknown can lead to trouble — trouble with eternal consequences. Laura Maxwell spent years as a spiritualist before realizing there’s something very wrong when your spirit guides are trying to get you killed.

We discuss Laura’s path into and out of the occult, why New Age practices are making inroads into Christian churches, and the danger posed by lack of spiritual discernment.

VFTB 368: Pastor Caspar McCloud – Unmasking the Future

CONSPIRACIES ARE our business around here. What many secular researchers miss in their investigations in the schemes and plans of the global elites are the real power brokers behind the scenes.

Unfortunately, most of the people who should be authorities on “fringe” topics like UFOs, the paranormal, and even end times prophecy — Christian pastors — refuse to touch the subjects.

Caspar McCloud joins us to discuss his new book Unmasking the Future, a look at the topics that drive people to search for answers from the Enemy when they can’t get them in church.

Do yourself a favor and check out Caspar’s music. He’s world-class, and that’s not an exaggeration!

VFTB 367: Doug Van Dorn – Giants, Sons of the Gods

WHAT’S A nice Baptist pastor like him doing with a topic like this?

Jumping into the discussion over the identity of the “sons of God” in Genesis 6, Doug Van Dorn, founding pastor of Reformed Baptist Church of Northern Colorado joins us to discuss his book, Giants: Sons of the Gods. Doug explains why he was willing to go where most pastors don’t and why the plain reading of Genesis 6:1-4 is the correct one.

VFTB 365: Brian Godawa – Rise of the Beast

MANY OF us take a futurist view of end times prophecy as a given (including your host), but it ain’t necessarily so.

Award-winning screenwriter Brian Godawa joins us to discuss his new novel, Tyrant: Rise of the Beast, a fictional account of the events behind the writing of the Book of Revelation. Combining research into theology, classical history, and the early church, Brian offers an exciting and heavily footnoted story that may cause you to rethink your assumptions about the Apocalypse.

VFTB 364: Gary Wayne – The Genesis 6 Conspiracy

THE NEPHILIM were on the earth in those days, and also afterward. In fact, the spiritual descendants of the Nephilim are still at work in the world today.

Gary Wayne, author of The Genesis 6 Conspiracy: How Secret Societies and the Descendants of Giants Plan to Enslave Humankind (note: click here for the Kindle ebook edition), discusses the research behind his wide-ranging work that covers at least 6,000 years of history and the strategy behind the long game played by the Nephilim, their angel creators, and their human dupes.

VFTB 363: John Ragan – The Financial State of the Union

STOCKS HAVE been on the rise since the election of Donald Trump. But the Dow doesn’t have any connection to reality.

John Ragan, one of the featured speakers at the upcoming Hear the Watchman conference in Dallas, joins us to discuss his book The Financial State of the Union and the reasons we need to be prepared for things to take a sudden turn for the worse. As John writes:
We can’t even stop from going further into debt. If we taxed 100% of all income, used it to just pay the interest on all the debt America owes, put aside enough to keep the social insurance programs from going further in the hole, we wouldn’t even have enough left over to fund the Federal Government.

VFTB 362: Preston & Kelly Condra – Witnessing Without Fear

MOST CHRISTIANS don’t know why they believe what they believe. This is a documented fact. And it makes it difficult to share the gospel.

Preston and Kelly Condra, co-authors of the new book By Which We Are Saved: Sharing the Gospel With Confidence, discuss the need for believers to know basic doctrine and how we can overcome our fear of sharing our faith with others.

VFTB 361: Dr. Aaron Judkins & Bruce Hall – Finding Qumran Cave #12

A NEW cave has been officially designated at Qumran, site of the discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls, for the first time in more than 60 years. This is historic.

Our podcast today features an extended interview recorded at SkyWatchTV, the first broadcast program to get an interview with two of the men involved in the dig, archaeologist Dr. Aaron Judkins and forensic architect Bruce Hall.

Joining Derek is SkyWatchTV’s Jake Ruchotzke for a discussion of the importance of this discovery, the physical and political obstacles that had to be overcome, and what expedition leader Dr. Randall Price hopes to find when the team returns to Qumran in 2018.

VFTB 360: Dr. Michael Heiser – The Watchers and the Forgotten Mission of Jesus

THE INTERVENTION in human history by a rebellious group of angels called the Watchers triggered consequences that are shaping the world even today. Even though this was common knowledge to the Jews of the first century, including the Apostles, the men who wrote the New Testament, most of us in the church have never heard of the Watchers, much less what they did.

Dr. Michael Heiser, author of The Unseen Realm: Recovering the Supernatural Worldview of the Bible, joins us to discuss his new book, Reversing Hermon: Enoch, the Watchers, and the Forgotten Mission of Jesus Christ. This groundbreaking book will open your eyes to the significance God places on reversing the disastrous effects of the Watchers’ sins against humanity.

VFTB 359: Stan Deyo – Tesla, Trump, and Power

NIKOLA TESLA is just one degree of separation removed from the 45th president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

Stan Deyo joins us with details behind a 1982 interview he recorded for a documentary with Trump’s uncle, Dr. John G. Trump. Dr. Trump told Stan how he’d been asked by the FBI to examine all the papers left behind by Tesla at his room in the Hotel New Yorker after the inventor’s death in 1943 — including a parcel that Tesla had instructed the hotel staff not to open because it contained “the secret to a super weapon.”

Stan explained what was in the parcel and how it might be used to generate energy from the atmosphere.
