trueGOD.tv – Global Christian Internet Television Network

 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.  Mark 16:15

trueGOD.tv is a media ministry with a very specific assignment – to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the world.  We take this task very seriously.  That’s why you can trust trueGOD.tv to deliver the gospel in a responsible, professional and creative manner.

trueGOD.tv is where people come to learn more about the Bible and Salvation in Jesus Christ.  It is for people that are searching for answers to biblical questions.  It is a place where you can glean from ministers of different cultures and denominations from around the world, as well as experts in science, history and other related fields.  The Bible tells us to “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman who needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15.  trueGOD.tv is a place for seekers of truth.  It is a place to learn the truth about God,  how to have a personal relationship with Him and how to share your faith with others.

trueGOD.tv translates to over 25 languages, with content in over 70 languages.  There are over 20,000 videos to choose from including talk shows, news, dance, poetry, sermons, history, science, comedy, animation, children’s programming, sermon jams,  apologetics  music, education, sit-coms, book trailers, film festivals and testimonials.  In addition we are Cornerstone Television Network and TCT Network affiliates broadcasting ministries such as Joyce Meyer Ministries, Joseph Prince Ministries, David Jeremiah, Andrew Wommack, Myles Monroe, Noel Jones and many other well-known and little known ministries, giving you the opportunity to hear messages that transform your life and secure your faith.

We encourage you to explore the site, become a member and upload your testimony or other original, Christian content.   Tell us about your born again experience and how you are growing in faith.  We overcome by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of our testimony. Share how you overcome challenges and obstacles through faith.  The Bible says,   The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.2  The very challenge you overcame can give hope to someone in the midst of the very same struggle.  Your testimony affirms that God did it for you and he can do it for them.  Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: Isaiah 59:1

trueGOD.tv is also a place where ministries come for products, support and services to expand their ministries. We refer to this work as our “tent-making efforts.”3   It is the work we do to support this ministry as good stewards:

Even through our best efforts, this work is bigger than us, so we praise God for His provision  for His vision through people like you.  Without your support, prayers and donations, this work would not be possible.  Please consider partnering with us to promote the gospel to people all over the world (many of whom are persecuted Christians in need of the hope and encouragement of the Word of God).  CLICK HERE.

Imagination

Posted by | Tags: , | Categories: BLOG: Ministry Director | Comments Off

tv-barsMathew 5:28
But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

In these words of Jesus, we commit the sin of adultery, not when we look at a woman, but when we engage our imagination, and allow our lust to be activated.

This is why secular TV and movies are so dangerous for a Christian. We are engaging our imagination, not just with lust, but with perversion, murders, blasphemy, lies, manipulation, extreme violence and the list goes on and on. Our entertainment looks alot like the list from Galations 5:19…

The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

And the works of a reprobate mind described in Romans 1:28-32

Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.
They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy.
Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

Things that violate the admonition of Psalms 1.1,

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

Or the command of “touch not the unclean thing“, and again, “abstain from the very appearance of evil“. And the admonition of Phillipians 2, of letting Christ’s Mind abide in us.

The restrictions for Christians thoughts to be like those described in Plillipians 4;

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Lastly, what are we forcing the Holy Spirit of God to engage with? We are not our own, and we grieve the Spirit of God with our appetites for the things of the world, and worse, things that are not from the mind of Christ, but from the mind of the evil one.

Epheisian 4:17-19

So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking.
They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.
Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, and they are full of greed.

Phillipians 4: 20-24, 30

That, however, is not the way of life you learned when you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus.
You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, by whom you are sealed unto the day of redemption.

And we wonder why God seems so far away at times.

trueGOD Television Year in Review 2014

Posted by | Tags: , , , | Categories: BLOG: Ministry Director, Technical Updates | Comments Off

trueGODtv LIVE AppOur Annual report of the last year and what God has done with trueGOD Television Networks as of February 1, 2015.

We are thankful for the growth of the ministry and technology over the last year. God continues to strengthen our platform and provide key direction in new technology for us to add. Our report will bring both our ministry friends, partners and supporters up to date about what God is doing with trueGOD Television Networks.

We made key changes to our platform this year to reduce cost while increasing our ability to grow. We tested a few cloud providers to get the best price/performance we could for parts of our infrastructure. We also consolidated some of our infrastructure as well. We are very comfortable with our infrastructure and look forward to more growth. Here is what God has done in the last year.

Accomplishments

There are currently about 120 channels on trueGOD.tv.
1,547,373 videos were viewed in 2014.

CCUpgrades to our Closed Caption System

We met four United States FCC deadlines over the last three years including compliance with the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 (CVAA). See last years report for details.

This year we added more languages to our Crowd Source Closed Caption system. Currently, we broadcast closed captions in 80 languages.  More languages will be added this year.

Internet Radio out of Beta

We have launched thirteen Internet radio stations with a wide range of genres and teachers from around the world. We have added the ability to simply upload MP3 to our platform for Radio station owners to manage their content. Currently, only Radio station owners can upload MP3s.

ascap_member_high-resASCAP Licensed

trueGOD.tv is now ASCAP Licensed, which enables us to broadcast music radio stations from ASCAP inventory of music. ASCAP will handle the royalties to the artists, producers and labels from the fees we pay to them. This opens the door to a lot more music on our platform than in the past. We previously restricted music to video only, then only specific labels or independent artists. We can now broadcast a much larger selection of content.

Upgrades to our Technology.

We have made improvement in a number of areas. The biggest is a completely new scheduling system for TV and Radio Channels. Our channel owners can schedule their shows with a simple drag and drop system. It uses AJAX for fast updates. It auto saves changes, allows channel owners to specify repeat events, and includes a number of other features. We will add more about this in other posts in the future.

chromeCast_browserWe added ChromeCasting this year to our players. Now if you have a ChromeCast device, our player will automatically detect it and enable it to “cast” the video to your smartTV. ChromeCasting works with iOS, Android and desktop players.

Our advertising system now uses Ad Pods, these are like traditional TV ads in which you have a group of ads in the beginning, middle or end of a broadcast. It still uses our ad server which is available to all Channel owners on our platform for both TV and Radio. We provide free training for all of our technology and extensive support.

Channels, Sub-channels have been updated for both TV and Radio. We are adding more features to enable the same channel for the Web to allow you to manage your Channel for Mobile, Apps, or SmartTV platforms. One system, multiple presentations.

We have enhanced our encoding platform for faster encodes and better HD support. These changes have improved the quality and speed of encodes. We will be working on speeding up the process more during 2015.

We will be adding auto MP3 creation for ministries to create MP3 version of their content. This will help to empower Internet Radio by using the video content that you already have. More to come on this as well.

Shared content is now available to TV and Radio owners on trueGOD.  We are making select content available to use as additional content of fillers for channel owners. This shared content is either licensed or is allowed for promotional or public broadcasting by the copyright owners. Unlicensed, or copyright restricted content is not shared among broadcasters or channels.

SSL Encrypted Streaming

We added this functionality specifically for those in persecuted areas of the world where watching Christian content on the Internet may be monitored, filtered, and could get you jail time, tortured or death. This is a very serious matter. We were told about underground churches watching our content in a middle eastern country where you could not openly preach the gospel. Therefore, we decided that this is the time to complete this important feature.

2105 Interface & Roku

We are working hard on our 2015 interface. It has an exciting new look, and like Netflix we will be using this new interface across all of the platforms that we broadcast on. We cannot announce a date yet, but we hope soon. We are also working on our fifth Roku App to be release soon as well. Ministries can have their own Roku TV app developed, for a fee. We can produce live or video-on-demand TV apps for Roku.

prayerPrayer support for trueGOD.tv

We are thankful to our intercession team for the prayer support this year.  We see a big difference between this year and years before. As my former pastor once said, “Nothing comes to earth, except through the conduit of Prayer.” It is prayer that has brought us thus far.

Live Streaming

This is one of the most important features of trueGOD Television.  We broadcast live for churches, ministries and TV stations across America, from coast to coast. We have one of the most feature packed set of services for Live Broadcasting, but most ministries have not heard about trueGOD.tv. This year we are working on changing that with better marketing and advertising of the live streaming services that we provide for ministries around the world.

The World is just in reach...The Future

We are moving forward in the direction that God is guiding us towards. More languages, strengthening missionaries, ministries and broadcasting more, in more ways. We are praying for careful direction and provision, content, and devices to broadcast on; broadcasting to every Internet connected video and audio device with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

God continues to do “exceedingly, abundantly, above anything we can ask or think…” We are thankful, humbled, and excited about what God has planned for our future. Pray with us, for us and ahead of us as we spread the good news of Jesus Christ together.

Yours in Christ Service,

Mal 2, Mat 15 In my devotions today God shared with me an interesting parallel in the scripture. I am currently reading through the Old and New Testaments; a chapter in one and a chapter in another. Often the Holy Spirit will arrange beautiful contrasts, parallels or insight between these two areas. That happened again […]
