Our Lord is Ascended!


Tuesday, May 26th, 2020

Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a powerful friend who went to bat for us? A friend who took care of our enemies? One who was upset with overreaching earthly powers who ignore His providence?

Jesus is ascended to heaven and we especially celebrate that this week. Jesus is the only potentate who has power over all things, both in heaven and on earth. We give our allegiance to Him. He is defending us and has a special interest in the well being of his bride, the church. He has received a body and is interested in physical things as well as spiritual. He cares about your person in total, both body and soul. It is Jesus who gives us ministers and blesses His people with gifts and graces. It is Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords -- who alone, makes intercession for us before our Father.

It is Jesus, now enthroned, who is overseeing the destruction of the kingdom of sin and Satan. It is Jesus who is in charge of the gospel being propagated throughout the world, and the calling of the Jews. Jesus, who is overseeing the fullness of the Gentiles brought in; the church being furnished with all gospel officers and ordinances, and slowly purged from corruption. It’s our King Jesus, who is overseeing the ordinances of Christ that they may be purely dispensed, and made effectual to the converting of those that are yet in their sins, and the confirming, comforting, and building up of those that are already converted: that Christ would rule in our hearts here, and hasten the time of his second coming, and our reigning with him forever: and that he would be pleased so to exercise the kingdom of his power in all the world, as may best conduce to these ends.

An old catechism reminds us:

Q. 54. “How is Christ exalted in his sitting at the right hand of God?
A. Christ is exalted in his sitting at the right hand of God, in that as God-man he is advanced to the highest favor with God the Father, with all fullness of joy, glory, and power over all things in heaven and earth; and doth gather and defend his church, and subdue their enemies; furnisheth his ministers and people with gifts and graces, and maketh intercession for them.” (Westminster Larger Catechism)

Thursday, February 13th, 2020

The Verizon T1 line came alive again.   WNEQ is back up and running now, as of 5:40 AM this morning.  Thanks for your patience.




WNEQ is off air


Thursday, February 13th, 2020

We have an outage at WNEQ since 3:24 AM today, and believe it is associated with a Verizon T1 line that is down.  The problem has been reported to Verizon. Thanks for your patience.  




Saturday programming change at 12 Noon EST


Saturday, January 4th, 2020

A Visit to the Pastor's Study is no longer available.  It was airing at 12 Noon on the Redeemer Broadcasting Network and its final broadcast was December 28, 2019. 

Pastor Bill Shishko has become the organizing pastor for The Haven (https://www.thehavenli.com/), a new OPC church currently meeting at 4:30pm on Sundays, at their temporary location of Ascension Lutheran Church, 33 Bay Shore Rd, Deer Park, NY.  

The extreme demands of planting a new church and pastoring it, required that Pastor Bill allocate his full time to the church, along with his wife Margaret. That's the main reason for discontinuation of the progam. The situation was further exacerbated by the fact that WLIE (later WBWD) changed formats and the live slot was no longer available.

Pastor Bill continues to love the radio ministry, and we are glad that he will continue to participate in our program Holding All Things Together for his short 2.5 minute segment each Saturday at 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM.  

In the meantime during our 12 Noon to 12:30 PM EST time, we plan to offer Top News, a 15 minute program called Vocal Point with Dr. Jerry Newcombe, and some music.




Working on WXMD - a few interrruptions


Thursday, December 26th, 2019

Our Chief Engineer is at WXMD today with Metrocast.  They are looking into last night's internet interruptions.  To do this work, we have to take the station programming offline.  Sorry for the inconvenience. 




Internet restored - on Fiber now


Tuesday, November 5th, 2019

The internet has been restored at the Redeemer main studio that controls all outlying stations in NY, NJ and MD. 

We are thankful to the Lord that the fiber connection is fully implemented and the new IP settings are coded into our router. 

Thank you for all your prayers for us!




Power outage at main studio


Friday, November 1st, 2019

*** Latest news ***

The power and internet are still out.  We were having problems with connectivity to WHVC. 

Wonderfully, our new fiber circuit was still under test into another router, so we manually swiitched over to that, and have regained full connectivity. 

 

From middle of last night:

We have lost power at our main studio and are on generator backup power.  

Additionally, we have lost internet connectivity as well, and are on a backup feed now. 

Very powerful storm in area tonight - many outages in the county.

The area outage is also causing intermittent connections to WHVC and affecting it.  

Thank you for your patience! 




90.3 Newburgh back on the air!


Tuesday, October 29th, 2019

Yesterday we ascended the steep, bumpy, precarious road up to the top of Mt. Beacon.  We were able to locate the failed piece of equipment and got the station back on the air.  Thanks be to God for a safe day and for His wisdom in fixing the problem. 

Our son Tim helped his Dad (me!) and was of great assistance.  It made me wish that we had a used, yet servicable Toyota 4Runner or similar.  The access road to this site is way too much for my little Honda CRV!  Fortunately we did make it however!  It bottomed out one time.  

THANKS BE TO GOD and thank you for your prayers for us.
