A highlight from BIG CRYPTO NEWS! XRP LEDGER NFTS SURGE! POKEMON NFTS POLYGON MATIC, $115 MILLION CRYPTO FUNDING

If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google, please leave a five star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, we've got some very big news around NFTs and I know some of you may not like NFTs or you've been burnt by NFT rug pulls, but NFTs are going to be part of the token economy that we are headed to. We've been talking about this for years and it's not so much the artwork or random Twitter users or crypto YouTubers and so we're launching NFTs, but rather big brands using NFTs. They already have a mass following, a lot of consumers and customers and so forth, and they are unlocking or helping you to unlock experiences and include exclusivity for certain services and products with NFTs. So here's the headline. Got to catch them all. Official Pokemon NFT trading cards take Polygon Matic by storm. So Pokemon obviously has a huge following to game the cards and much more. So the transition to the blockchain, the tokenization of these cards absolutely makes sense. People already trust the brand, right? They have established themselves as not being a scam. So NFTs here make sense. And once again, when this is pulled into the movie industry, the music industry and concerts and so forth, it's going to unlock a lot of unique experiences. And of course, there's a secondary market that you can resell these NFTs. And obviously I'm bullish on Polygon folks as the layer two scaling solution for Ethereum. So official Pokemon cards in the form of non fungible tokens are being minted over Polygon, taking the layer two scaling solution by storm in a lengthy thread on the social media platform X digital asset consultant, Sammy. ETH says that digital card boosters of the popular Nintendo franchise are being opened over the Matic blockchain and have already sold out by the hundreds. Some of them seeing 10 X increases in price, according to Sammy. ETH, the booster packs are randomized and initially cost $5 each. Some of them containing high grade cards that could be worth about $500. Here's a quote. Each pack costs $5 and had a chance of receiving one of any of the pre -disclosed cards. The randomization is executed fully on chain for transparency. Possible cards include PSA nine graded cards from 2000 with valuations of $500. So essentially folks, if you know anything about collectibles and trading cards and look, I, I collected, uh, Pokemon cards back in the nineties. And I have some, I think they're probably worth some money. That whole trading process and grading and, you know, getting the exclusive cards is going on chain folks. So I hope you see what's happening here. The of evolution many markets and the move into the being fully immersed on the internet and, you know, with a digital experience. So this is very bullish and you may say, well, I, Tony, I don't care anything about Pokemon who cares, right? Who cares about squirtle and Charizard and Pikachu. I get it. Look, I don't still, you know, follow Pokemon. I still have the cards that I hope maybe it will be worth some money as time goes by. But the point is it's going on the blockchain of the tokens. Many of you hold that's utility, and this is a big brand. This is a trusted brand, right folks. So this is what I'm looking for from an adoption standpoint. And it's one of the reasons specifically around polygon and Matic that I hold the Matic token, because I see polygon getting a lot of adoption from big brands. So to purchase the packs, investors can use either the stable coin USDC or a credit card. However, Sammy dot ETH says the packs now have a floor of around $50. Here's a quote to buy the packs. You can either use USDC on polygon or pay with a credit card. Anybody with zero crypto knowledge could acquire the packs. The floor is now $50, a solid 10 X from the mint price. Folks, this is bullish. In my opinion, the adoption, once again, not the NFTs specifically or their topics, but the big established brands minting NFTs and different things on the blockchain. That is what I'm looking for as an investor in these tokens. Now here's another example. The XRP ledger just set a brand new record when it comes to NFTs. So many of you may recall the XLS 20 update that rolled out about a year ago in October of 2022, which allowed the ability for NFTs to be fully functional on the XRP ledger. And we've seen a lot of adoption. So XLS 20 added the native non fungible tokens to the XRPL, allowing any XRP ledger account to generate own and trade an NFT on the XRP ledger. The standard in introduces native non fungible tokens to represent assets that are each unique, as well as opportunities to enumerate transfer and keep such tokens. Since the introduction of the NFT capabilities, the blockchain has grown dramatically and NFT activity continues to expand. According to Bithom statistics, 1 .9 million NFTs have been minted since the launch of XLS 20. A total of 29 ,584 accounts currently own over 1 .65 million NFTs. The amount of over 1 .28 million NFTs was transferred or sold. On its official X account, Bithom reported these statistics in celebration of NFT day. And here's the tweet with all the statistics. So really great to see this is happening on the XRP ledger. Obviously, it's happening on multiple blockchains. But folks, whether once again, you hold any NFTs or not, this is part of the future. But once again, we want quality, not bullshit, right? Because there have been a lot of scams, a lot of issues. The NFTs actually have to have utility. And that's the key to unlock exclusivity, additional experiences and much more. Now, quick word from our sponsor, and that is Uphold, which makes crypto investing easy. I've been using Uphold since 2018. They have 10 plus million users, 250 plus cryptocurrencies, and they're available in 150 countries. You can also trade precious metals and 37 national fiat currencies on this platform. You can easily swap between all three. So if you'd like to learn more about Uphold, please visit the link in the description. Now we have some very big news around crypto funding. And I like to look at this news because it gives me an insight into what investors are investing in, who's raising capital, maybe some of the TradFi incumbents coming in, right? And this is important news because that capital will be deployed in the market. So Blockworks, they usually do a weekly crypto funding roundup. They said crypto funding startups raise $115 million across gaming, custody and institutional services.

"Pick this year to start in hill's place and he's actually played pretty well. Their head coach actually recently said that they wanted to unlock maledictions. Don see where his ceiling is just only means that he's going to be a lot more playing time in the future. I the first round pick lexi punkish ski. He locked joined the g. League bubble in orlando a played a lot of rotation on so far this year too. So that'd be a good development form. They are excited. Probably gonna back after the bubble to see how he can help. Impact the end of the season going into next season and the thunder just continue to develop their youth. And they're just trying to build that team around Alexander he's really turning into a leader and he's really proving that you know he can. He can lead this team. I mean they're eight and eleven and honestly being very honest with you. Don't have that much talent on that team right now. It's all along a youth development and showing showing that they're near five hundred. It's law goes on shoulders on caring team right now and for that for them to kind of fight. Flip tennessee in the playoffs. They're they're really to grind and fight for that. I can definitely see them. Possibly making the ninth tenth seat. Maybe over portland just because of portland's injuries and thunder young team. They play hard. They really nothing to lose on. Second really see them. Maybe maybe fighting for the last playoff spot with minnesota look up and down season is well. Man minnesota's disappointing.

Especially if it's it's looking like law season are ready for them. Unfortunately i'm so much show to where head coach ryan sent. Saunders might be on the hot seat entering his third season. I mean he's having a win percentage of like twenty five percent which really really bad To be very honest with you. But i don't think it's entirely his fault there.

Reddit's GameStop stock surge has Wall Street running scared
"So for those listeners. Who have not been following this straw closely. It just gives us a quick run through exactly is going on with gabe. Stop stock wise surging. I have to save for for once. I am so happy. And so thankful that i got such a good financial education from reuters and the wall street journal because oh my god essentially what is going on is that there were a bunch of people who are investors on wall street. Who bet hard against game stops future. They had actually bet so much that they had overplayed their hand. And what's really interesting. Is that a bunch of people on the internet on. Reddit realized this bad bet was going on and thought. Oh well wait a minute. We get the price to go up. Just enough wall street will have to recalibrate its bets. And that's essentially what's happened. It's called a short squeeze and The result has been unbelievable. These prices going from last year in august. It was around three dollars and fifty cents a share all the way up to four some four. Sixty four ninety. It's unbelievable and of course now it's very volatile right because it's it's up in that it's down and we're talking about like losing half doubling losing like. It's absolutely ridiculous. But i think what's really interesting about. It is this huge battle between institutional investors are at these people who are on wall street in are are kind of not only that but also seen as the smart money in the room completely against these people on the internet who are often seen as as kind of the the idiots right the people who don't know what they're doing and just you know they make money on the wall street.

Biden Administration Hopes to Increase Vaccine Production
"The biden administration is now projecting that as many as ninety thousand more americans will die from the coronavirus in the next four weeks. The virus has already taken over four hundred and thirty thousand. Us lives the administration's new health. Briefings are set for three times a week and are part of biden's attempt to restore trust and breakdown public resistance to the vaccine as for the vaccine white house corona virus coordinator jeff. Zen says the administration is looking into multiple waves so speeding up production. His comments come a day after president biden announced plans to provide states with enough doses for three hundred million americans by the end of the summer. He said states or getting better at at administering the shots and called on congress except for florida. Maybe maybe to pass biden's one point nine trillion dollar american rescue plan. The bill includes four hundred billion dollars for efforts to contain the virus including increasing the pace of vaccination and ensuring more testing nationwide joining us. Now physician and fellow out the brookings institution dr patel. She's also With us morning joe. Chief medical correspondent. Dr dave campbell. Good to have you both. I like to always begin with where the virus stands right now. dr dave. You're focused a lot of your time on florida. My instinct is florida's doing terribly. Just looking at how people are behaving at night out and about in cities florida like many states across the country are not doing well but we make a weekend see some little shining light in the numbers that have been coming out in the last week or two in terms of new cases and hospitalizations in florida and across the country. But the grave concern that. You'll be hearing about now all day for the next few weeks or these variants that could be increasing the rate again with yet another surge if the the unfortunate expectations come true. Dr patel your concerns and we're talking about ninety thousand more deaths before we can figure out how to roll out this vaccine in a way that it gets to everybody. Is there any way that can be curtailed. We're gonna hit half a million people absolutely make a good morning and happy to be here at publicly with a little bit of good news. We're starting to see a lot. More data on just the strength of some of the treatments it's not hydrochloric winter. Bleach no surprise there but emerging evidence about combination of antiviral treatment monoclonal. Antibodies as well as other trials before people get hospitals that can actually decrease death and the risk of becoming severely. Ill so this just emphasizes that you know. The biden administration as they spoke about yesterday has to do everything they've got to fix a vaccine distribution and supply problem. They've also got a fix. What never got fixed on testing issues mega. It's ridiculous that it still takes me. Forty eight hours to get a turnaround and that's a good day on test and then they also have to really fix this issue of masks fatigue to your point. That's partly why governor governor newsom basically had to call it quits on stay at home orders because frankly nobody's following them especially in southern california for the hospitals are still deluged but improving lightly

"I think there's three separate missions are going to land the next month covid variants. We've heard a lot about variants. And i think we should start with some definitions. There's words like variant strains out there neither of them have strict science definitions but it's imported at the kind of operating language. I'm using Is okay this is all the same species so it's the same virus that has the same function so it'll be like me and will we look different essentially if you zoom out. If you're an alien looking from you know a different solar system at us you see us as a bunch of meat bags. Maybe emanate heat basically Do the same things But when you zoom in closer you can see some differences that may affect how we operate in life day to day like a will has a much longer. Robust beard Due to his natural evolving mutations on a daily basis so as these viruses go through their life they they tend to mutate every time they They replicate and with how much virus is circulating across the globe. Those mutations are overall helping faster just because there's more virus out there and so there's more reputations When we talk about strains we're usually talking about a virus that has mutated a difference that manifests in a typically like what we'd call a pheno typical way like some way in how interacts with the world in interacts. Most importantly with us as human beings has changed and so i think the two variants the one in the uk and the one out of south africa. That are making the most news. Like i would call those strains Based on the early evidence the reason they're not being commonly called strains i think is because we just don't have enough evidence at this point to prove unequivocally that they're operating different But early on there's a lot of concern about the uk variant which is called b. One one one seven has a higher transmissibility factor We don't know exactly why but it's born out in the data and mo- scientists sort of believe that at this point What we've been studying for a while now is Is how can our countermeasures. The vaccine Monoclonal antibodies protect against that and so This strain has a mutation at the end five. Oh one why site were a receptor binding domain. So this is where our antibodies would Bind onto the to spike protein on the actual corona virus. And we actually. I tried this a potential mutation going back months so like there is actually studies in mice. Going back six months looking at this mutation. And so we've known about this a thing for a while but it hasn't been a real virus out in the world until the last couple of months and what they found is that overall they've attested in laboratory conditions and they've looked at it under real world conditions where somebody has had vaccination Been exposed to this To this variant to this strain and there seems to be no impact on the vaccine efficacy here. And that's the important thing so at this point we're not seeing any data to indicate that the vaccine reduced thus far have any less efficacy against this. Be one one one. Seven a strange which is awesome news And they've tested under multiple conditions but laboratory and now looking at data from a madonna that shows it under real world conditions where somebody in the world has been exposed to a real virus..

"Mcu slowly paving the way for young avengers of essentially being thing which has not been announced. But i could totally see it because they have miz marvel as tv show. Which i know wasn't she's not formally A young venture but she's of that age group in the comic books there was a an are called the young avengers in which after the avengers disassembled They were a team that or the archetypes of the avengers in terms of And hulk like character or copying america like character an ironman like character but younger Were brought together and but all with mysterious backgrounds and then all with kind of revealed ties the resolve injures so iron lad who brought them together and being crying or king the conqueror and Hope actually a scroll A transforming scroll and the the characters wiccan and speed. We're actually the twins and so Vision and want to have twins in the comic books and one bare spowers on one bears magic powers and they become members of the avengers. You have the scrolls and the mcu so could totally see whole cling character I don't know what the cap character would be. But they're going to bring king in with task four movie and also Cassie lang daughter of scotland. Leave recasts her. The mcu and she becomes the comic book stature. Which is a giant man analog and also with hawkeye Tv show you also The new hawkeye. So i think they're totalling down the groundwork and i'm sure peter parker will be involved. Yeah hundred percent in. It feels like it's gonna line up to some sort of movie not a tv show with with that kind of team up. And i'm glad you glossed over any re. Absorption storylines which are very very. That's very weird in very bad Do you think that I'm just gonna keep the spoiler up for a second. Are we getting mephisto. Now what do you think. I think no on. Who's mephisto the devil. The devil devil. I think the only character. I'm wondering if that could be missed. Oh that shows up here is who's 's husband. That's the one that we've heard references like two or three times like. Oh ralph is is in erie end like who the hell is ralph. I'm wondering that's a. I wonder if that's a good seat of the sitcom or if that's actually a tease of something that's coming so that that's very much having watched thousands of episode of bewitched an and mary. Tyler moore like the the gal pal best friend with no visible husband. That's always referred to offscreen. Is very much the trope but i i wondered that too casual or i think you know it's yeah. I think they're going to explain it into the context of the infinity gem her powers and to bring in this extra level of mephisto as a character would be i think too much for the scope of mcu right now if you want the deep dive. There is a scene in the key trailer where there's a picture of a stained glass that shows a devil on it and that's why that's why i kind of take. Yeah but i am so deep in like the marvel conspiracy theory. Read it and i'm going to start shorting next week so we're now well..

What my side finally dude. I've watched each episode blake at least twice. There's a lot there it's a lot going on. I will can lead. Don't frame me as somebody that doesn't like the show i my stance i will reaffirm my stance right now. I think you should not start watching the show for another two weeks is what i said. I think it's a much more enjoyable show especially with these early episodes Because i think it's personally frustrating. How slow. The overarching story is advancing. On a week. To week time tape. I could play of the modern tightly with ashore only because i can tell that the first of soda we talked about last week were heavy on conceit of the the format of the sitcom format of the recreation of these twentieth century. Sitcoms neck show bewitched And now This most recent episode brady bunch right. I think is what they were kind of going with the brady bunch house look very brady bunch ask it has the open stairs. The whole fan and You know obviously As the execution the the acting the writing the production design is spot on as tributes. Those eras as well. So i think still holding their own being funny and you can tell the amount of the half an hour devoted conceit versus pushing actual story forward and mystery shifting. Louis i could see it shifting. I could use it shifting by the end of the brady bunch episode. I was wanting more revealed slow. Slow-burn was just a little bit too slow for me. So i'm i'm a long time. Binge viewing hater and one of my favorite things of the last few years has been the return of weekly episode. Must watch tv with watchmen and mental oriented and stuff like that.

"But everyone is treated with you know with has engaged with it honestly and sincerely In at the end the the culmination is that derek has a an artifact of the run of that show that is singular and unique in that it is a. It's not just the signing diary that you go when you visit a museum right. But it is their people's thoughts and imaginations and feelings and the physical aspect of them taking that out into the world and holding onto it for back and there's a lovely idea there too well. He called the ship's log. But the but the thing that i liked the most about it is the idea that people come. They spend sixty minutes at the show about and then he kicks them out and they have twenty four hours then to to absorb what's happened in that first sixty minutes and think about it and like it gets to live in their head for a full day longer than anybody else in that theatre gets it. And that's that's like that's a that's a gift right. That's really gold treasure moment. What responsibility but also a privilege to be one of those people to have that book and everyone you can tell they treat it as such because people go real fancy right they. They do diagrams and they they. They don't just write journal passage that they're asked to like they go all out to stand out because They are now part of the interwoven into the fabric of the show. They pulled the elephants drawing out as the diagram later in the film. I thought that was a lovely lovely thing. They're all sorts of lovely touches. That i saw the film that i didn't see that night because there's so much that your attention is pulled in a million directions during the show when you're in the black box. That was lovely i. I've said this before. I was lucky that like two seats over for me was frank oz that night and just watching Watching the show. And there's some really great interviews with derek anne frank together Talking about the process as nor mentioned last week. Derrick put out an incredible twitter thread about pitching the show to frank And the process of coming up with this is Is just fascinating to hear the the the the idea and then i have one recommendation if you like this type of storytelling.

"Kate was in the documentary and she sent me the letter that she got And it was just precious like that's like Like a reading it in knowing who senate and what it said I can see the transformation in. I can see how it like touch this part of her that she was a unwilling to To share like touch this important part of her and they're given the choice to read the letter out loud to the audience as they do. That's again one of the benefits and will the powerful things about the film is that you can see the other participants in the other Audience people who got to read those letters in how impacting the end for everyone. Almost everyone of them. It is such a profound thing and unexpected thing. Absolutely denko was also. We went for Before avery was born she was still a five months pregnant and she she was chosen and she got to read the letter and she got a letter in us from her sister. I'll yeah nor was it was really from her sister. It was really from her sister. I think there's some like i wanna be in the business of like the trick and right like you know how does magic work right But i think there are some people commenting on an wondering if they were paid actors. Because that's certainly a way you could do it There it's obviously not. This is a real thing like it was in. He's already given away one free ticket night so the adc theory. I can't afford to do too many freebies and speaking of we should about the book the book the book oranges. Gosh so my favorite thing. I think so. This is a again i think. The the transformation trick is a leap of faith on an there a leap of faith the audience member half to to go along with right as you when you go into any performance going in any match. Show the willing suspension of disbelief. Yo to engage with the material. The more you believe intuit the more impact and you'll the more you'll get out of the performer and the director are trying to do trying to say with the show And dare puts up a leap of faith in audience member with this bold i. I'm so curious to how this trick was conceived of and it's The idea that midway through the an audience member is pulled out and given a book And then asked to leave the show and come comeback tomorrow. Promise that you come back tomorrow and what you do is in that book You right in the audience members asked to write what they think how they think the show will end will conclude and bring it back the next day and then the that person comes on stage and reads out how they believe. The show will end. But there's no like there's got gotta believe there's no tracking marker. There's no like cheap. Es thing in the book this is purely leap of faith. On derrick and frank causes part that the audience member will come back with the book and people have scanned pages of it. You know of the of shows he's done People brought the book and film and done their thing with it..

"But that's that's not the same as being put in that spot in having to actually physically take a card and even if it takes you half a second to make that decision that half a second is in that half a second is how you see yourself in. However many years you've been on this earth We were you thinking about that through the rest of the show like the choice you mail you pick a car don't give it to the usher As soon as you walk in. And then you go to your seat but the power that that self that choice that you make in picking a card and how that's then magnified when derek calls you out to to look you in the eye and revealed to everyone in that room and to yourself how you see yourself. That's the power of that show. Yeah that's the magic trick. Right is making you think about your identity. In a way that you haven't probably in a really long time if ever and to do with a group of strangers and to do it in such a kind generous way I know the focus is on that last trick and for good reason but a part that still carries. I think the most meaning to me was the letter i was gonna say. The letter is the one that i don't have any idea that's called the elephant right. It's he also story of a of a transformation right and and again it's about how people see themselves but to witness the transformation on stage And you know. Wh describe the trick i guess. He calls a from that deco self identity cards. He calls a random member of the audience on stage And i don't think it's random norm i'm describing as it is seed and then from one of the cubbies for whichever tricks it's actually. It's a stack of letters. And he pulls a stack of letters has audience member pull Go through them. Pick one that jumps out them Pulled out and it turns out. It's well the envelope is just to the theater. The audience member opens envelope unfolds of shoot of paper. Reads it to themselves and in that moment they are transformed for the rest of the audience because What they have read. What they found is a letter written to them by one of their loved.

You watch like even pantelleria show the the reaction shot the audience is there to lissette like. It's a give you the viewer at home. Some sense of come here to laugh along here aren't oh i'm sharing on some wondering delight that person in the audience Who washed in person had a by. Its way more important to this. Show because that connection between derek and individual Individual audience member is part of the performance. Yeah i i agree and going back to what you said will there. You can't replace being in a black box and being stuck there compared to being at home Like you're in a kind of cauldron inside that black box that the emotional stakes in a lot of ways like you're making choices inside of the theater. That aren't as resident outside. But the thing. I got to see as mentioned is the faces of the other people. It was harder to see all those faces and see the reactions is the most impactful part of this beyond what i personally got out of it with seeing a near the end i am gonna fast forward today. End as he's doing the last trick in. Everyone knows it's a trick. That's the difference between like the john edwards. B s is. Everyone knows it's but it doesn't matter is the as he was going through a naming every single person that stood up with their identity was there is one woman that he didn't actually say the words he just pointed at her and made a hand gesture up and she just started bawling and you could see like there is the light it was magical. Like that was the only way describe. It is like she felt really seeing in whatever that moment was And the emotional impact that had across the rest of the crowd of seeing her for A seeing her both as the identity that she identified but seeing it also from the perception of outside looking in which is the was really special. I felt precious is is how i felt so much of the show. I think boils to that lasts trick. There's a lot of technical amazingness and and and storytelling and a lot of personal Just Empathy that you get from the earlier betsy of the trick where he talks about his mother and tells whole story and the golden brick right. There's there's an amazing you know. Reveal there and there was a i i. That's one of the tricks where as he makes the brick disappear I don't understand how he does that. But that's the that one.

"Stocks are working with is not gonna change a massive system like yes some hedge funds during a lose money. Some are gonna go you bail outs and go bankrupt. And that's their fault. Because they made these rational bets early on and didn't account for a movement so work against them but know they were doing basically the same thing with the amount of purchasing power. They had with With the stocks beforehand. So you know they'll be some they'll be some corrections to to a at the end of things and you know the still be a a nice footnote in history Maybe a turning point for how these stocks or an biza regulated a specially as. It's so much easier now to to get involved using an up so my part about we were talking about this on the tech pod discord last night and my understanding from that conversation. Is that part of the reason this happened is that the hedge funds had worked together in a way. That is not illegal. But it's kind of like like wink. Nodded on to say hey. We're going to buy up all these shorts and they bought up all of the available shorts and that's part of the reason this worked is 'cause 'cause in that process the people that are trying to sell when things started going bad. Start trying to sell. That drives up the price even further and as a result. You have like this like it's just it's it only works because the hedge funds were working together to my guess. Is that a. They'll probably some sort of sec rule. It'll be hard to enforce and be it'll it'll end up being a situation where the hedge funds much more coy about what they're going to short and they're not gonna come out and say. Hey yo dog we think. Game stop is tanking. Let's let's let's for bottom out so that the venture capitalists can come in or the people got up and dismantle the company oversight anyway. It's going to happen gary. Yeah you know what's hilarious about this to me. Is that all those years that we've covered those stories about eve online and like all the coordination goes we're finally seeing the real world applications of all that effort. I wonder also. I don't follow the sub reddit closely but how much of it was emotional because it was game stop as a company a company that writers and people who live online communities have lots of nostalgic feelings for and want to see survive. Maybe in the same way that. Amc is the same way I don't do you think people like dame started you like the idea of game. Stop or don't don't like seeing big big money. A bet against game stop. I think your point is that they know what game stop is. This wasn't like cargill or something like that where it's like some major company but no one's it has no consumer face so no one knows what it is. Yeah i think that had to play a part in it in getting initial traction but now that the rabbit out of the hat think it'll be easier for them to do this if the opportunity arises. And that's when it'll probably go awry. A i feel bad for the sec agents who have to go door to door in peoria and be like are you x four twenty big dog on read it and you know the track..

The Likeness of the Glory of the Lord (Ezekiel 1:28)
"Ezekiel Chapter One verse Twenty Eight. Like the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain. So was the appearance of the brightness all around. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. and. When I saw it, I fell on my face and I heard the voice of one speaking. This. This is such. A good verse at the end of a fairly confusing chapter like you. You read through Ezekiel. Chapter One and your head might be spinning like trying to put all this imagery together. But part of the picture here is is exactly what Verse Twenty Eight is saying Ezekiel is seeing the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord and he is in awe he's over while I'm T- can't wrap his mind completely around it, and that's just the likeness of the glory of the Lord. In recent days I've been an. Exodus chapter. Thirty. Three next chapter thirty four when God reveals himself to Moses and I kings chapter nineteen when God reveals himself to Elijah but neither Moses or Elijah can see like behold the fullness of the glory of the. Lord. So they get like a partial view. So to speak much like we see here in Hezekiel at the appearance of the lightness of the glory of the Lord to all this to say like we see this all throughout scripture God's glory displayed described and all kinds of ways that all lead to all. That's exactly what happens. In. Excess Chapter Thirty Four. It's exactly what happens in I. Kings Nineteen. It's what happens here in Ezekiel Chapter one about Isaiah chapter six like whenever anyone sees like the lightness of the glory of the Lord there on their faces it's all over revelation and then so in light of all that, I just want to remind us where all scripture is headed revelation chapter twenty, two, verse four hundred scripture. All history is headed toward the day when the Bible says, we will be fully free from sin and sorrow and sickness and suffering and death, and all the. Hard things in this world. and. We will be with God. He will be with us and verse four and Revelation Twenty Two five of the most beautiful words in the Bible they will see his face. Clean I want to encourage this hope today like one day we're GonNa Behold the glory of the Lord. And so today in view of that day, like open up the Bible Ezekiel Chapter One and all kinds of places and here this one speaking. Ezekiel says when I saw, the light is to the glory of the Lord I fell on my face. I heard the voice of one speaking like pictured when you open up the Bible the God of the Universe whose glory you could not. Be Able to see in this world, he is speaking to you. Like I was at the coast recently, I'm looking out over the horizon seeing this what looks like an infinite expanse of sea and sky and I've got my Bible open and I realized the God who created this is speaking to me. He's listening to me as I'm praying he loves me cares for me and I just want to pray that over you. Oh, God a pray that every single person listening right now with no one that your glory is beyond our comprehension. That, there is no way. We can even imagine your greatness and your beauty and your splendor, and you're wonder God re pray that you would help us never ever ever to be casual with you to have a small view of you. CAN GIVE US A. Glorious view of yourself up to realize that your glory even likeness of Your glory would bring us to our faces in off. And and sends does cowdery pray that you would. Make us a people who spend time. On our faces before you. In all of you. And then to open your word. And hear US speak to us. God May, we never cease to be amazed by. Your love for us. By your voice in our lives. By. Your care for us you're listening to us you the Creator. Glorious God. Overall you are listening to us right now you're with us your spirit dwells in. God, we are in awe. and. We pray you help us to live with the sense of odd and to love your word as the one who's speaking to us and God. We pray that you would kind of form us more and more and more in the process. To. A likeness of Jesus just like second. Corinthians three says beholding Uruguay Laurie transform us our lives. From one degree of glory to another, make us more and more holy. Make us more and more loving. Make us more and more like you. We pray. In Jesus name.
