Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Prove or establish one of the most interesting TV commercials. I have ever seen and I'm not gonNA mention the product but it is that product we have a leak and the product is applied and instantly that seals leak. Here's commercial they're gonNA couple of commercials like that. It is almost as if you're route in-invoke out there good distance from shore and your boat begins to leak you. Just take out this magical product and you apply the stoplight product and and your boat is not going to leak. You didn't continue fishing trip. Not all the products that people have come up with as far as an interesting product. I think that one would certainly the one that would appeal to a lot of people because it would have a lot of applications if something sounds too good to be true chances are it probably is. We'll see a product like that when it's advertised. You've got a leak coming in your roof. You there and apply the product and the weakest. Gone when you're out there in the boat and your boat begins the leak. No problem when you're out there in the desert and your vehicle has a hose spring a leak. Just wrap some of this tape around rounded and the leak is going to be instantly stopped. We Wanna see that tested. We WanNa see that proven if I'm going to take that on my fishing trip and it's GonNa be the solution to a leaky boat. I want to know what works. If I'm going to buy that for a leaking roof I wanna see that tested. God knows our character. He doesn't need to see our character but there's another character involved in the spiritual story that we were writing and that is the devil in revelation chapter twelve in verse ten. That's in gray on the screen. The Bible says sickness accuser. Not only does that tech say the that was an accuser of the Bible says that he accuses God's People Day and night the devils accuser. That never stops the devil. It is a lot like that water. Stop product that leaks. We say well. That's a bad product actually did some looking online to see what people said about that product asking. Stop the legal. That's about what I figured. I kind of want to see the reviews but the devil is sort of like that. He looks like a Christian and he says they're not legitimate. They're not real. They really don't love you. God they serve you for this or that reason. God they're a hypocrite and the list just goes on and on and on. There are people who are good rundown of us have you that somebody who fell into that category you can have the best day ever and talk to that person. And they're going to run your data you can look your very best S. and they're going to run your parents down whatever you have to say or do or think they're gonNA have something negative or bad say about you if you WanNa know who the authority is when it comes to running down folks. It's it's in revelation twelve ten. It is a devil. He accuses people day and night. Let's take that information and make a little more person. Imagine the devil coming before God tomorrow or even tonight and he goes before God and says he is a fraud she is a fake. They are not genuine. The Devil says we pointing to us. We need to be condemned. We because we're spiritual rodney given back the gun. We because the devils accusation or not fit for the Kingdom of God. The Devil seeks to run down. The People Lagaan now. It might seem for the devil to go before God and make those kinds of accusations and be perfectly fair with a double. You might think the God I would just hated level. You gotta here but you know what God has done is perfectly fair with the devil rather than strong arm Satan God says in essence the devil. Let's look at the person that you're accusing. Let's see what's going on in the live now. So how do you know that I know that because reading the book of Job You may remember. That story seat went before God and he needs to Machias Asians and God says okay. Let's talk about an example. Let's look at jobs life. If you read the book of job you find. The job was allowed to face trials. How's the very thing that we're talking about in James Chapter One? Those trials that job went through. They were severe unbelievably severe. But you know what happened. Joe was indicate was he. Perfect man know someone who was willing to withstand the trials really to the best of his ability. The answer to that question is yes. We're exposed to trials. We need to see them for what they are. James Understand that he says they are awake. They are illustration of our commitment and our faith our loyalty to God. That's gene says in James Chapter one verse to Ub Joyful so when manifold when a variety of trials coming hard times you'll be thankful for those not because they're difficult because because James says you can go through those you can whether those and they will establish your character now. Don't expect that you're going to weather. Every trial successfully come through the flying colors. It doesn't work. That way. Didn't even work that we've for the apostles when you have a trial and perhaps you add not as well as you possibly could have as you look back on how things went you can pick yourself up dust yourself off and seek to do better next time. We should expect to try to both trials in the best possible way. Don't skip over. How James Opens Gems One to count it all joy my brethren when you fall fall in a medical quotations along with proving faith trials can do something else in verse three? He says they produce patients as he continues the thought lose down to verse four four. He says when those trials come he says they helped perfect character recent. If you've never seen them we can show you one reason. I have a fair number of petoskey stones uh-huh that we picked up within about the last year or so and those stones Michigan State Stone those stones if you've never seen them are basically coral. which is fossilized with hunted them a couple of times but never really seriously we happen to have as we were hunting them we were looking for them over a mobile period? Read on about three of the days where we're hunting wellstone's we happen to have the widest possible range there was just enough moisture. We sort of get wet but not really rain. I mean that was the most interesting experience for me because as we were out there in that weather there were stones which normally would have looked like a regular stone. I would not have looked at that stone. I thought this is a petoskey stone after a small amount of water and they're actually some people who take a spray bottle and spray. The stones' are searching for them but after that smallest amount of water hit the petoskey stone. Something happened there was change. We're actually able to to see the coral formation in the stone thinking about that in terms of James One in the trials. Have you ever met a Christian. Who has like Mike? The petoskey stone this hidden they say oh. I became a Christian. Nobody knows it. Oh if enough happens they finally might acknowledge that there are Christian. If enough is done they might finally say. Well yes. I'm a Christian but that Christian liked that was supposed to be burning so brightly it can be dimmed to the point it can be hidden to the point where it's like a petoskey stone. You Walk Right by you step on it you look at it and you have no idea what it is petoskey stones though you find something else you find that there are some other petoskey stones. They don't need any water as you're walking by you you look at that and you can see the formations. You don't have to bend over. You can say that is a petoskey stone if Ben shaped it's been molded it's been in home it's been polished and nobody would have any doubt when it came to sing. That's a petoskey stone. Not only are those formations visible symbol sometimes. Those formations are stunning. You can find it on the web if you want but President Obama. When he was in office he had at least at times a petoskey stone stone in his office someone gave him one or maybe he bought one beautiful stone? Beautiful example Foschi.
