San Luis Valley Voices
Summary: The San Luis Valley is an 8,100 square mile high alpine desert region in south central Colorado. Nestled between two distinct mountain ranges, this vast area is home to farmers, ranchers, entrepreneurs, multi-generational families, business owners and more. It abounds in year-round outdoor recreational activities of many types and is the headwaters area of the mighty Rio Grande River. The Valley as it’s known to locals is home to 6 entire counties and 3 partial counties, with more than 20 towns of various size. SLVoices is “Your Voice in the San Luis Valley” in south central Colorado. We create informational and entertaining podcasts by interviewing local people from local attractions, businesses, organizations and city governments. This helps spread the word about new and exciting endeavors from smaller local artists, craftsmen, and entrepreneurs who are helping to revitalize diminishing downtown areas in the various towns of this area. By doing this we are helping to create opportunities, jobs, and economic growth in some of the most historic and charming towns in the San Luis Valley.

According to Biblical and historical documents, there was a group of fallen angels that were the Watchers of humanity. These angels crossed a line of separation and gave birth to giants on the earth as recorded in Genesis, the Book of Enoch and Jubilees. All of these accounts tell us that Yahweh put this group of angels into chains for a certain period of time - 70 Generations. In this podcast, Brother Shane Vaughn asks the question - Have you noticed a changed in the world that makes this world unrecognizable to you? All of a sudden it seems that nothing is the same and society is degrading more quickly than ever. We believe there is an explanation as to why and it has to do with the return of these watching Angels.
If we break one law then we have broken them all, so what's the point of trying to keep any of them? Since it is not possible to keep all the details of the Torah today, why should we try to keep any of it? Didn't Christ speak against the keeping of the Torah? In this teaching we bring out five specific commandments in the Torah that seems to have no modern-day application in our lives and we teach you how these laws are still in force today. Since we are not saved by the keeping of the Law, why are we going back to the law? Isn't this the opposite of the Christian message of Grace? Absolutely Not!

Do you know what Satan's fantasy is? If you don't then don't worry, you will most like it hear it preached from the pulpit of your church next Sunday. In this brief live audio teaching, Bro. Shane Vaughn of First Harvest Ministries teaches and exposes the false gospel of the modern church and talks about his personal journey. There was a moment in his life when everything in his thinking changed, when God asked him "When will you preach MY Gospel?" This question came after Bro. Vaughn spent a lifetime of preaching what he knew to be "The Gospel" but as he was soon to find out from his studies, he had actually been teaching Satan's Gospel.
Torah, Law of Moses, Law of God, Jewish Law...... all words that we are forced to deal with, sometimes uncomfortably so when we make up in our minds to become a Commandment Keeping believer. Sounds great but then we run headlong into which Commandments still apply! Which ones were done away with and since we all know that no one can practically keep all 613 laws of Torah then shouldn't we just disregard it under grace and hope for the best? (Would you discard your car's instruction manual just because it's overwhelming?) Is there an answer? There Is! This is part 4 of a 4 part teaching series by Shane Vaughn. We will deal systematically with the entire conversation about the Law of God.
