Taught by Glenna Salsbury with Alicia Williamson Garcia as worship leader!
What In The World Is Going On?
“Indeed, the Sovereign LORD never does anything until He reveals His plans to His servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7 NLT
The world is shaking! Increased earthquakes, unprecedented weather, a myriad of natural disasters (Philippines, Haiti, Katrina, Indonesia tsunami killing 250,000 people, etc.), rapid decline in morality, economic collapse and wars on every major continent. The Lord as Creator speaks to us through His creation (Genesis 1:14). He speaks to us through His written Word (Prophecy). And He speaks into our heart by His Spirit! The Bible tells us what specific signs will precede Christ’s return. Many of these are now unfolding before our very eyes! Come discover what the Lord has revealed to us in His Word. And learn how you may want to prepare for what is coming.
Session I – The Eleventh Hour
“So when all these things begin to happen, stand and look up, for your salvation is near.” Luke 21:28 NTL
There are unique Bible prophecies that have only been fulfilled since the beginning of the 20th Century. These are all related to events that, when fulfilled, are God’s warning signs! Get ready!
Session II – So What?
“We tell you this directly from the Lord… we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.” I Thessalonians 4:15, 17 NLT
Sometimes we think Bible prophecy is irrelevant to us personally. Believers often shrug off any interest in learning what God’s Word says to us about His return. Yet the first century saints were totally focused on Christ’s return, day after day. Why should we be focused on the Lord’s return?
Session III – Your Heavenly Future
“… and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” Revelation 21:4 NLT
The fact is that what you and I are currently experiencing on earth is “boot training” for our future assignments. What are your expectations for life after death? How are your expectations impacting your daily life right now? Discover some secrets for increasing your joy right now!
Session IV – Heaven on Earth
“… As surely as I live, says the Lord, every knee will bend to me, and every tongue will confess and give praise to God.” Romans 14:11 NLT
Christ is returning to set up His Kingdom on earth! He will “rearrange” the geography of the earth! All the nations of the world will worship in Jerusalem. (“Where does it say that?” you ask!) And how might this knowledge enhance our daily experience of Christ in this life, here and now?

There are multitudes of people who believe in the message of the gospel, but it takes a special gift to passionately articulate God’s truth in a way that truly impacts lives. Alicia has that ability.
“The heart of our ministry is the Word of God. God has given us music to open the heart and His infallible Word to fill the heart and change a life. “Worship, in its total essence is a response to the truth, not a reaction to circumstances,” says Alicia.
Blending articulate communication with heartfelt emotion, Alicia reaches her audiences with a clear knowledge of the gospel and a genuine desire to see lives changed by the Lord Jesus Christ.
Alicia holds the Master of Arts in Worship Studies, with a concentration in Leadership Degree from Liberty University. Undergraduate studies were accomplished at Winthrop College in Rock Hill, S.C., with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Vocal Performance. After college she traveled six years with the contemporary Christian group TRUTH, where she first recorded her signature song, “There Is a Hope.” Alicia began her ministry in 1993 and is now touring the country as a Keynote speaker and worship leader for Christian women’s organizations.
Alicia is an accomplished singer/songwriter, prominent Bible teacher, keynote speaker and television host.
Over the last few years God has opened doors for Alicia to partner with several other ministries. “God is faithful. He’s given me numerous opportunities to share in ministry with friends and mentors,” Alicia explains. Some of these ministries include Precept Ministries with bible teacher, Kay Arthur, The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, IN Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley, Women of Faith, Gaither Homecoming, The Brooklyn Tabernacle, Dr. Tony Evans of the Urban Alternative, TBN, The Inspiration Networks, CBN, and many more.
Alicia has recorded several CDs: “Alicia,” “There Is a Hope,” “The Rescue,” “Faithful Heart,” “Praise and Worship”, and “We Win”, “Rest in the Lord”, and “Glory Now”.
Alicia is married to Richard Garcia, and they have two sons, Michael Chandler and Richard “David”.
