In 1862, Abraham Lincoln Met With Black Leaders on the Idea of Their Own Country

"So Liberia was an attempt to do what Malcolm X later wanted to do. But in the 1850s, a group of blacks went to Abraham Lincoln and Abraham Lincoln was like, look, if you guys want your own country, we can arrange that. If you black leaders want your own country, we can help you with that. And they deliberated amongst themselves. And of course, deliberation comes before a decision according to Aristotle, deliberation is one of the highest forms and contemplation. I'm sorry. Deliberation leads to contemplation which locally will lead the truth. And they came back to Abraham Lincoln, what they said? They said, this is our home. This happened on August 14th, 1862, Abraham Lincoln did something unprecedented. He met with black leaders all free black clergymen. And he said, we're happy to support a new black country. They were even talking about South Africa, South America, I'm sorry. And Lincoln mentioned Liberia because this was a suggestion before. Now, this movement didn't really gain much traction until Malcolm X resurrected this idea before his assassination. Where Malcolm X basically said that blacks can never be free in this country. We have to go back. And you could say a lot about Malcolm X, that actually is the logical conclusion. That is the logical answer if you think America systemically racist. Leave. Now, I don't think America systemically racist, so I'm not encouraging people to leave. But if you believe that like tah anisi Coates does, then why are you still

Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and Their Battle to Save America's Soul With Brian Kilmeade

"I'm talking to Brian kilmeade, author of the president and the freedom fighter, and you just shared something that I really was I never thought about this. So when Lincoln is elected in 1860, a number of states had seceded. First South Carolina 6 more. Okay, and so that's before his inauguration. Before he gets to The White House. Okay, so he's elected. They secede. And then on the assumption he's going to free the slaves and they're not going to deal with it. And he says to get them back into the union, he says you can have your slaves. Thirteenth Amendment could be yours. Okay, so that's the freed slaves. You could be enslaved. And so exactly how did that go? So obviously you said that Frederick Douglass feels betrayed. So it took him some time. I mean, it's kind of funny because you get this with Lincoln. He takes off everybody and at some point, right? And a real conservative today would say suspending habeas corpus. I don't know. You know, it's like it's very interesting that real leadership will do that. It will take off everybody in a way. But so for a while, it seems to me that Frederick Douglass must have not been very pleased with him. Absolutely not. And then when he brings up colonization to solve the problem of the African Americans in America, he say, listen, we made a big mistake. It happened before we were born. So can we send you back? So he invites newspapers, all the press with him, like selective members of the press. And he brings in African American leaders, doesn't invite Douglas. And he says, made a big mistake. Obviously, blacks and whites can't live together, and it's part of this part of the reason this is the reason for the war. So I would like to make you an offer give you plenty of money to go back to Central and South America or wherever you want to go. Douglas, everyone in South America or Africa. Africa, too. He said you could go wherever you wanted to go. We will send you. So we will free you and let you go. Absolutely out of the country. Out of the country. And this bothered Douglas. Beyond by these, I'm an American. I don't want to go anywhere. Where am I born? I'm born here. You got to send me elsewhere. Since when camp blacks and whites get together, remember, and I haven't brought this up yet, but they have another similarity. They both read this book called the Colombian orator. The Columbian order teaches how to speak publicly, teach how to hold yourself and also has great essays from these people like Cicero, Socrates, George Washington, people in our past, and they're thinking big and grandiose. So you wonder why that speech worked at 28? Lincoln's been reading every day since 7. That's right and envisioning himself on that level without the cockiness and ego with the humility to know that it may be what he was capable

Fox's Brian Kilmeade Discusses His New Book 'The President and the Freedom Fighter'

"I'm talking to Brian kill me, you may know him from fox and friends, but he's written a lot of books. This one is called the president and the freedom fighter Abraham Lincoln Frederick Douglass in their battle to save America's soul. America soul could use a little saving right now. But we're not going to talk about that. What made you want to write a book combining these two figures? Well, I was looking for the last time I was here. You kind enough to interview me about Sam Houston, the Alamo Avengers. So I try to find an angle not plowed and the Alamo is, but San jacinto isn't 9 months later he ends up taking him out as San jacinto beating Santa Anna in 17 minutes because Texans know it, but the rest of the world. So I go, what's next? The Mexican war, I didn't think had enough. My opinion, I'm sure there's a lot there with Lee in the quartermaster grant and the fact that these generals fought on the same side and then years later, they'd be trying to kill each other and a lot of them successfully. I said, all right, the Civil War. What could I do that's not plowed ground from Ken burns a series to the remarkable book, David blight wrote about Frederick Douglas Scott? I think the book of the year, 5 years ago. And then what about Lincoln? I literally you and I gave the same situation. We get books about linking to our desks all the time, and they're all great. I'm waiting for nobody who's written been written about more. It's like maybe three people like who've written about Napoleon Jesus, Lincoln. I mean, I don't know how many books have been written about Lincoln. So yeah, what do you do for a fresh angle on the Civil War? So what I wanted to do is also I didn't mind tackling race, but I wanted to do it through quotes, not opinion. And racist never left the news, Black Lives Matter is raging at the time. And then you have you have a situation where as late as Condoleezza and rice Condoleezza Rice on the view, having to defend herself growing up in a Jim Crow south who knew all about racism, but grew up as his conservatives says, don't ever let it be an excuse. So I said, what have I talk about their parallel lives to the degree in which they read a lot of the same books? Did they overcame incredible obstacles? Nothing like Frederick Douglass. I get it. The guy was enslaved until he was in his 20 years old, two tries, got out in the second time within 7 years has a biography. It's a bestseller, and then starts a world tour and becomes famous in Scotland, Ireland, Germany, and England. This guy was a slave ten years before, but decides to come back to America because his 4 million enslaved 350,000 slave owners and he sees potential in this guy Lincoln and the Republican Party that we're finally ready to do

"And today I get to talk to the author of a book called the president and the freedom fighter, Abraham Lincoln Frederick Douglass and their battle to save America soul. And the author of the book is someone you may know, named Brian kilmeade, Brian, you look very familiar. Eric, thanks so much for your support over the years. Every time I have a book out, you always say come down to this cathedral. And this place is the nicest studio I've ever seen. Period. Thank you very much. Look, this, I think I told you this. And by the way, people, if you're just tuning in, this guy has been on Fox and Friends for how many years now? 25. Radio show for 13. Well, hold on a second. Did you just say 25? Yeah, I started doing it in junior high. I thought so. Yeah, it was crazy. Playing pop Warner football and they grabbed you. It took me 12 years to be to get to Fox. And then once I got there, I realized how great it was, even though no one had heard of it yet. So when it started, I started filling in as a sports guy, and then it evolved and things started going crazy from the war from the election mess to the war on terror to the Iraq War. First election mess. Failure to a 2000 Chad hanging chads. Yes. So you are the youngest living institution in the country. Seriously, that's amazing 25 years from the beginning. Yeah, I mean, I knew when I walked into that place who was going to be special, they were all about winning. They're all about substance. They're all about getting things done completion oriented. Every time they would be a negative story out, they would put their headline on the wall. I'm like, wow, they're not running for negative stories. They would laugh at being laughed at.

"What was the relationship with Lincoln and Douglas was Lincoln intimidated by Douglas Douglas was a powerful figure Was it the reverse I mean what was the dynamic between the two Sadly link you never wrote about it but others said he talked about it Douglas was a overpowering figure in the time wanted an immediate Emancipation proclamation wanted to let blacks fight for their freedom He didn't do it And in the beginning he was he was given and said on his first inaugural hey guys come on back in We lost 7 states We need you back We can compromise what we've slavery for now Whatever you do come on back to wood and Douglas Are you kidding me You want them back This 4 million slaves there's 350,000 slave owners We have to end this now That's what you talked about in the Douglas debates do it But he knew Lincoln that if he did it you have no country you preside over because the north was exactly ready to fight for slavery either but gradually both things happen when they finally meet at The White House He realizes what winning was how sincerely was how deep he was and what a great listener he was And together the brief period of time they rallied with recruitment they rallied on issues getting equal to whites in the war and the respect that they had was enormous And I'll just share with you the last interchange He walks into the inaugural ball after only Yorkshire Greek and looks like she's delicacy of my friend Douglas What did you think of the speech We look back at this mister president Don't worry about me Look at all these people around us There's nobody's opinion that I care more about What did you think of the speech He said mister president a sacred effort And that was their last exchange So tell me how more they came and how important they were I mean to me I read that and I get

"From the world. And finally there was a third interpretation. Wanna share with you today on this partial podcast that i'm supposed to be subdued and really calm. It might do a good job by being calm. My beaned balanced and maintaining my composure. I hope so. There was a major rush. The tells us where abraham torah from may on low mud abraham et cetera. From where abraham studied. The tara gives us two answers. One of them is may at smo- he studied era from himself. The second opinion tells us that his two kidneys were transformed into two pitchers of water and those pictures began to sprout torah from them. So where did abraham study from from himself and his two kidneys turned into two wellsprings of torah. Is that the idea over here. Each and every one of us we have a soul within us. A soul is a captive citizen from the spiritual world. The soul doesn't want to be here. The soul yearns to go back to where it came from. It suffers every minute that it's here but the sole actually contains within it all of torah. Everything that we need.

"And the reason for this because they have to learn to acclimate to the perspectives to the outlooks to the world view of the heavenly torah even if someone is immersed in developed the real expertise a taste for torah here. They need to be trained so to speak to reverse the river to do. The opposite of motion did moshe went to heaven and took a heavily torah and transposed it to us to make palatable understandable to us well when we die for righteous we have to be under the reverse experience of making ourselves compatible with heavily. So it's been a year so to speak in his lower paradise and slowly we get acclimated and transformed to be someone who can appreciate the heavenly torah of black fire. A top of white fire but this concept that we have so to speak this heavenly torah the first thing they got created and it exists on a different dimension in the spiritual world and it was transposed to our world via moshe. We asked the question. How did abraham get torah. Abraham did a personal version of mosaic trans positioning. Torah abraham was a prophet. He was in communication with god. And the almighty reveal to him the heavenly auro via prophecy but he was also able to transpose that into understanding it. Exactly how to pave in this world in line toro. That's the first explanation of how abraham had torah. How did he know exactly what to do. He had access to torah of black type. Wildfire and like moses for the nation abraham himself knew how to do the same thing had a translate those insights and those understanding those principles to the human and worldly frameworks. That's one there was a second explanation. Wanna share and that is based on top of page one hundred. It says had we not been given tara..

Author Tom Gilson Describes How Jesus Never Used His Power for His Own Benefit

"Folks I'm talking to Tom gilson John's raves about his new book too good to be false. It's about the character of Jesus. Again, tell us what the subtitle is too good to be false. Jesus incomparable character reveals his reality. So you were just talking about, well, just continue from where you were because it was a very important point. Yeah. The point is that Jesus never used his incredible power for his own benefit. This is without comparing. You know, Abraham Lincoln said that nearly every man can stand adversity. But if you want to test a man's character, give him power. And you never find anyone in history or in literature who is utterly other centered on offer called him the man for others and boy was that true. He was in everything he did. It was for other people, not for himself. All the way up to his death. And his resurrection. That's I've been a Christian since 1975. And I've known since then that by doctrine, it was okay. It was acceptable to worship Jesus. But when I realized how much other center he was and how much more than I am in particular, my worship turned from a doctrinal okay to an existential necessity. I couldn't help but fall to my knees and say you are my God. So much better than me. So much better than me. If you don't understand that, see, that's the whole thing. It's like, I think that evangelicals of certain stripes have made it an intellectual ascent. And if its own intellectual ascends, you really have to question if it's real if it counts. If you don't, if your heart doesn't break for who he is and what he has done, do you get it? Do you really get

"abraham" Discussed on Knowing Faith

"Paul is having to in his writing, anticipate that having said what he just said, the audience might go, hold on a second. Abraham, question, Mark. And so he begins to deal with that. The church hears this and goes, what about Abraham? So let's just pan out here and let's not presume very much. But what role did Abraham play in Israel's story? Like, why is his name being invoked here? Yeah, well, Paul's doing something similar to what we see in hebrews, where he is like, I know. I know who you think is awesome. Let's talk about how the lord regards him. And not only that, but the Jew would see themselves as Abraham's offspring, meaning that they had special status before the lord. So he's going to take them to the Hebrew of hebrews, so to speak. And point out to them, the flaw in the way that they're thinking about things. Right, because if he can make his case through Abraham, it's a pretty it will carry a significant amount of weight among Jewish Christians and gentile Christians by way of that. Right. Right. Because Abraham played it really significant role in being the father, not just the forefather according to the flesh, but kind of the covenant head, right? The covenant head of God's covenant of grace. Well, yeah, they believe that they're chosen in Abraham. And so then the question of how Abraham is chosen becomes a vital importance because then, you know, it just following out the logic. If this is the way that Abraham has saved, then it would also be the way of Salvation for those who come after him. Right. And that's exactly what Paul does. He pulls Abraham into this conversation on justification. I mean, the next line inverse two for if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God, for what does the scripture say? Abraham believe God, and it was counted to him as righteousness. So Paul is saying here, Abraham was not justified by works. He was justified by virtue of believing in the righteous God who gives to Abraham his righteousness. He counts his righteousness. This God's righteousness towards Abraham. So he's saying to the Jewish Christians, hey, it's not just that you aren't justified by works. It's that Abraham wasn't justified by works. That's a big point to make. It's a big point, and it'll come it'll become an even bigger point because it will, you know, it's ultimately no one is justified by works, except for one. And that's Christ. And so I do think it's important for those who perhaps missed our tour of genesis to know that this quote, Abraham Bolivia is credited to him as righteous as this genesis 15. It's what is said of Abraham immediately after the promise of God in the covenant is given to him. So it's a forward looking belief, like God says, I will make you descendants as numerous as stars. I'll give you a land. This is the whole thing. And then it says that Abraham believed this. So he walks by faith and not by sight, right? And that faith is the thing that is what brings him into right standing before the lord. Yeah, is this trust in God? God's provision God's plan. God's character, God's righteousness. Again, this is heavily reliant. I think this passage and understanding it is heavily reliant on a multifaceted picture of righteousness. If you're viewing righteousness is just moral purity, which God has perfectly and Abraham needs desperately that it lacks some of its punching power. Abraham's belief in God is not merely that God is better than Abraham, though that certainly true. It's the belief that God is going to be covenant to be faithful to the end..

"But as his do and to the one who does not work but believes in him who justifies the ungodly. His faith is counted as righteousness just as david also speaks of the blessing of the one to whom god counts. Righteousness apart from works. Blessed are those whose lawless deeds or forgiven and who sins are covered blessed is the man against whom the lord will not count his said. So here we go. We jump in and we get another one of those rhetorical questions right out of the gate. From the apostle paul he's presuming an objection and a similar objection that he presumed in romans. Three which is he has said. Some things at the end of romans three and he is anticipating that the jewish christians might go well. What about abraham right. Like is abraham super significant right. Just like he was presuming chapter three that they might say well. Hold on were circumcised. Don't we have a unique advantage. So paul does this. We said he does is over the course of the letter. He anticipates an objection and now he begins to preemptively respond to keep in mind. Paul wasn't reading this letter to the church in rome. Phoebe was. she's out there. she's reading the letter. So paul is having you in. His writing anticipate that having said what he just said. The audience might go hold on a second abraham question mark and so he begins to deal with that the church. Here's this and goes. What about abraham so. Let's just pan out here and let's not presume very much. But what role. Did abraham plan israel story like. Why is his name being invoked here. Yeah well pasta or something similar to what we see in hebrews where he psych. I know i know who you think is awesome. Let's talk about how the lord regards him and not only that but the jew would see themselves as abraham's offspring meaning that they had special status before the lord so he's gonna take them to the hebrew of hebrews so to speak and point out to them the flaw in the way that they're about things right because if he can make his case through abraham will it will carry a significant amount of weight among jewish christians and gentile christians by way of that right right. Because abraham played it really significant role in being the father not just the forefather according to the flesh but kind of the covenant head right the covenant head of god's covenant of grace.

And that's exactly what paul does he. Pulls abraham into this conversation on justification. I mean the next line in verse two four. If abraham was justified by works he has something to boast about. But not before god for what does the scripture say abraham believed god and it was counted to him as righteousness hall saying here. Abraham was not justified by works. He was justified by virtue of believing in the righteous god who gives to abraham his righteousness. He counts his righteousness. God's righteousness to hoards abraham so.

"Me bought some talking to my friend Kirk Cameron, Kirk. We love you. You just cheer me up seeing you. You were just bringing something up. I had wanted to be in Plymouth for this past weekend. I wasn't able to do it. But tell us about this. This is so it's just so wonderful. Anybody who hasn't visited that monument, oh my goodness, go ahead. So this is a monument that was the cornerstone was laid in the people of Massachusetts and it was finished in 1889 and president Abraham Lincoln was one of the original contributors to the building of this monument, and it was made to be the monument that told us everything that we needed to know about what made this the Pinnacle nation of the world, the Beacon of freedom and justice for all. And it's what we need to get back to if we want to maintain it. It's called the national monument to the forefathers and this last weekend was the very first of 7 nights of revival under the stars that I'm hosting. It's called the American campfire revival. And it really is sort of springboarded out of that first hundred days during the new administration's run of executive orders. And I thought rather than us just being on the defense, why don't we download the executive orders from heaven, the mandates from above and start running those plays and see what happens. And I made a campfire in my backyard for a hundred nights in a row. It's called the American campfire revival. There it is. Oh my gosh. There are sweatshirts. I love this. And so people would gather online in my backyard around a campfire and we would begin learning the history of our America. Not the 1619 version, but the actual true untold story of our forefathers who covenanted with their creator and applied his word to subdue tyranny and build institutions that would create

"Know the word experience but for you. Abraham what does what does that. How do you define that word experience. What does it mean to you For me experience is is just the the recording a fall the sensory History in your life that have made you have Good times bad times Times that you consider That they have learned something that you have enjoyed or that had sometimes make you upset for thanks And through the different senses Things that you see that you like and that you try to see again because you found them enjoyable Same thing thanks. You listened things that you have touched well. A combination of all these Events that you record in your mind that help you crew eight and make decisions based on on on what you have Touch smell seen in the past And i feel all these combination of events. Bring you that experience to help you. evaluate every second of your life every hour every day of your life and because you compare that every everything. It's a comparison of what you have done in the past. If it's better you pick it up and you'll improve us human being. If it's not better you come back and remember what made it better and you try to do it better at that time so experience. It's very big. Word is not just about having an emotional reaction to something. It's the recording that helps you grow Internally and that helps you. React to whatever Environment your your at As you say Having an architect coming into a building and and seeing a space nuts enjoyable to to look at to Be around eight. It helps you Recall thanks that you like it helps you. Focus on the things that you would lie for the future and when you go to other places and that don't have that same beauty or that same static. you. You remember that and you try to see like what can we do better to create a better environment here and that comes from the experience from those moments had touch you to enjoy live. React to thanks. I don't know that's how i see experience. And and it's just a broad word because it's just about the sensory part but it's all about to Your mind how does it react To your environment to and how it can help you grow ice In many ways So that's what i consider experienced. I don't know if. I just now confused guys with my description of experience. But when i was reading your question or earlier i oh my i can talk about experience of everything that had happened to me..

What Is a Tell? Archaeologist Steven Collins Explains

"So what we're talking about is you in One thousand nine hundred ninety six for the first time said wait a minute. According to what the scripture says because you believe that the is an accurate guide you say according to what it says if this place is discoverable today it is up in this area north of the dead sea on what you call the car plain. Nobody's looking there. You decide to look there. You discover a gigantic tall. It's called right. What is it tall. How do you describe that to a lay audience. Yeah a tell or tall. Ten is yeah is a it's a ruin mound and it builds up like a layer cake as one civilization comes along one city is built. It's it's destroyed and then another one comes along building over and over and over and these things rise up to quite a height and near eastern cities are like this. There are multiple civilization layers that create these gigantic ruin mounds in taal hamas. A huge. one of these. Yeah and what's the creepiest thing to me is because we don't we certainly don't have this in america but we don't have this in most of the world when you can say there was a huge city there for thousands of years before abraham in seventeen hundred bc. We can't conceive of a city. Three thousand b c a flourishing city. So by the time. Abraham gets there it's basically been there for thousands of years. I mean that's very tough for us to conceive of a city that far back. Yeah and of course. The bible indicates that as well. Because if you go back from abraham's time back to genesis chapter ten. What you get is a very good description of the great. The building the great fortified cities of the ancient near east and amongst them are the cities of the plain sodom. Gomorrah adma boy. And they're all there in genesis

Archaeologist Steven Collins on the Event That Took Civilization Offline for 7 Centuries

"Was talking to my wife about this yesterday. dot coms. I said you know it's a funny thing because you're just the archaeologist. You find this stuff and then you have to turn over your findings to every kind of scientists many hostile to the fundamental idea. Evidently they seem to think what you and. I seem to think which is maybe the biggest headline of all. Yeah early in the dig when we started discovering all this kind of anomalous melted material stuff that looks like it had been exposed to rather high heat index. What do i do with that. I'm an archaeologist. I know how to dig dirt. I know how to recognize strata. I'm an expert on ancient pottery. All of that stuff. That goes with archaeology. But i'm not a physicist. I'm not an astrophysicist. I'm not kim. Mr a geologist so all that stuff had to be turned over to scientists who know what they're doing with that sort of thing and it actually wind wound up in the hands of a team of scientists. Call the the comment. Research group r. g. who has their well published in all kinds of scientific journals including the proceedings of the national academy of sciences. And now of course. Nature scientific reports on this particular paper that they wrote but they've been involved six or seven years in this analytical phase of the destruction layer for the middle bronze age at tall hamam which associates with the time of abraham and this particular layer had all kinds of indicators that they call them proxies of what's called media riddick or cosmic bowling airburst event that exploded over. Just the the side of a mom but exploded over the entire plane of the jordan were the cities of the plain. The cities of the car in genesis are located and it absolutely took civilization off line in that area for about seven centuries

Donald Trump Deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for the Abraham Accords

"Question. I wanna ask you and you can go anywhere you want. But when people talk about the abraham accords. I'm not sure. I understand the significance of that. I haven't heard much about it. Tell us what's your perspective on that. What did trump achieve anything. Well the media did a terrible job covering most important storage game. Changing set of arab-israeli peace agreements in a generation re literally have not had an arab-israeli peace accord in twenty five years We've only had two prior egypt and jordan and president trump who was told by everybody in the peace industry in washington. You'll make the middle east worse you'll never make peace. You don't know what you're doing. You're a moron. And yet he accomplished four arab israeli peace agreements plus an agreement between kozo a muslim majority but non arab country and israel. It's extraordinary what trump pulled out and eric. You know this about me. In sixteen i was a sharp critic of trump. i would've considered myself a never-trumper. But i did would always know whether never-trumper did i said. Okay i have these deep concerns about him but let's let's pray for him every day and let's see how he how how he does. When i sat with them in the oval office a scene described in this book. I told him that. I'd been a never-trumper now eric. You know the man. How often does the term never-trumper get used with mr trump in his presence particularly in the oval office because judging from the looking at his is not that often. But i said to him. Listen i didn't believe your promises. I didn't trust you. But i've been stunned by what you've accomplished and i began rattling these things off. Let's just take a few right. The abraham accord had not yet happened. But we were trending there. It was clear to me that he was going to be able to pull these things off. Four arab-israeli agreements. Okay plus destroying the isis kathy. Liberating five million christians and muslims and yazidi from the reign of terror of isis taking out the isis terror. Commander abu bacher all-body taking out the top iranian terror general qasim sulamani ripping up the iran nuclear deal of imposing a maximum pressure sanctions campaign against iran. Moving the us embassy from talbot to jerusalem recognizing israel sovereign rights over the golan heights. And i could go on. And on as i do in enemies and is i believe. Trump deserves a nobel peace prize for the abraham accords. I doubt that he's going to get it. But if you don't win a nobel peace prize for creating peace with four arab countries and israel. What's the price

"Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant to step the ocean and crush us with one blow? Never All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined. With all the treasure of the earth except our own. In their military chests. With Bonaparte for a commander could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio or make a track on the Blue Ridge. In a trial of 1000 years. At what point then. Is the approach of danger to be expected. I answer. If it is ever to reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot. We must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men. We live Through all time. Or die by suicide. And he wraps up With The rest of the admonition and you can read that for yourselves. But To sum this up. Abraham Lincoln gave us this morning and he said, this country comes down because we'll take it down ourselves. Mark Levin wrote the book, American Marxism. Because he clearly articulates But that's happened where here doesn't mean the country is Over. It means they've gotten a footing and we can't play games anymore. It is no longer a spectator sport.

Alfred Wegner Takes Continental Drift to the Next Level

"It was a really interesting guy. Born in eighteen eighty in germany got his degree in astronomy but became meteorologist which was still a rather new field at the time. His primary interest was in the northern polar regions. And how air circulated. He participated in four expeditions to greenland and was one of the first meteorologist to adopt the use of weather balloons. However meteorology and expeditions to greenland aren't what alfred wegener is best known for its for his contributions to geology and geophysics. The idea that he is remembered for began innocently enough on christmas day nineteen ten. He was at his friend's house when he began looking at his brand new world. Atlas he made the observation that south america and africa seemed like they fit together like pieces in a puzzle. I should that he was far from the first person to notice this once. Decent maps began being published. In the last part of the sixteenth century people. i observed the same thing. The first person we know of who made the observation was dutch. Cartographer abraham or telling us or telling us created the first modern atlas in fifteen seventy which means he was probably the first person to have the idea because no one before that really had a good grasp of the geography of the continent's william colby wrote in his book on geologic history. Quote abraham are telling us in his work to doris geographic suggested that the americas were torn away from europe and africa by earthquakes and floods and went on to say the vestiges of the rupture. Reveal themselves if someone brings forward a map of the world and considers carefully the coasts of the three continents and quote. Ortelius was far from alone after him. The idea that the continents fit together somehow kept popping up theater. Christoph lilienthal alexander von humboldt antonio snider pellegrini and alfred russel wallace all made the same observation one or two hundred years before moreover there were several other scientists just a decade before who came to a similar conclusion. In fact. there's a good chance that you probably made the same observation. One of the first times that you saw a world map they took the idea to another level however he began by cutting up maps and piecing the landmasses together like a puzzle. He was able to put the continents together into one giant continent that he named panja from the greek words for all and land.

"abraham" Discussed on Made of Mettle

"With this vision abraham was able to take a more collaborative approach to win the war using his top advisors abraham even described his approach as mostly reactionary as he had no set plan of attack and how to manage his forces as such he was making decisions and giving commands based solely and his advisors in personal experiences. Up to that point it was also during the war that abraham would make one of his most iconic and memorable political decisions. The creation of the emancipation proclamation. Going back to abraham's earlier sentiments about slavery he had initially opposed it for its deep economic issues for the country. This opinion then evolved into his more well known beliefs and personal freedoms and the morality of slavery being inherently wrong abraham wanted to balance the eradication of slavery with the preservation of the union ultimately. This was his main goal in something that he was willing to compromise over if it meant the end of the war in eighteen sixty two abraham was quoted when asked by a reporter as to why he wasn't fully supporting emerging anti-slavery laws abraham said my paramount. Object in this struggle is to save the union in his not neither to save or to destroy slavery. If i could save the union without freeing any slave i would do it and if i could save it by freeing all the slaves i would do it and if i could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone i would also do that. During the civil war there existed border states in the union that were practising slavery. Abraham was concerned that if he would enforce or support anti-slavery legislature he would lose the much needed military support of these border. Union states on january first eighteen. Sixty three the emancipation. Proclamation was issued with several caveats in exclusions for those union slaveholding states while few slaves were actually freed under the emancipation proclamation. It was the beginning of a wave of federally mandated freedoms that would be finally granted to enslave people throughout the country. Abraham i saw the impending change towards a nationwide distancing from slavery for the united states outside of the areas that relied heavily for commerce which were mostly based in the south. It was on this platform of anti-slavery which was unlike any stance he'd taken before that abraham would be reelected during the war funny enough. Even abraham question the validity of the laws he was an acting during the war. Following the emancipation falker. Mation abraham advocated for the thirteenth amendment which further granted additional freedoms to enslave people throughout the country. Instead of just in the confederacy the thirteenth amendment reads as follows neither slavery nor involuntary servitude. Except as a punishment for crime where the parties are have been duly. Convicted shall exist within the united states or any place subject to their jurisdiction. This amendment officially made slavery illegal in the united states. It was almost tied of radical change. That abraham would be touted as revolutionary for the country. The civil war was still going on strong. But abraham was garnering much needed support from his followers author out the war abraham was not exempt from the regular responsibilities of politics. He had to maintain party relations within his own party. While managing his oppositions parties activities while there are many points to be rectified with the war abraham made it clear that he would consider any peace arrangement that included the reunion of the country and the eradication of slavery in the south abraham's advisors encouraged him to consider any offer for peace but after fighting for four long years the confederacy for saw their defeat and met with abraham to discuss terms of ending the war. Abraham made it clear that he would be open to any plans as long as the seceded states rejoined the union to groups had emerged during the war that called themselves the radicals and the conservatives. Each group had their own plan envision for rebuilding the country some based in partisan views in others in military strategy bringing the country together would not be easy especially after such a polarizing in devastating war. There were talks of seizing properties from slave owners and giving it to the formerly enslaved as well as military occupation of the south abraham had plans of his own as well that centered around the huge task of integrating the newly freed population within the country. Abraham even introduced the idea of granting voting rights to newly freed african americans especially those that had served in the union military. It was a daunting task. Bringing essentially two opposing groups with completely different wants to a commonly agreed plan. There was much opposition in turmoil between the northern and southern states on just what plan would be the best for coming together. The ending of the war didn't bring about a magical solution either just a few days after the official end of the civil war abraham decided to attend production at ford's theatre in washington. Dc if you recall. Abraham was always a fan of the arts and the theater. As abraham watched the play he was assassinated by southern. Extremists named john wilkes booth who was a strong supporter of slavery in the confederacy on april fifteenth. Eighteen sixty five. What is the most unfortunate about. This story is that abraham didn't live to see his true dream of bringing the country together successfully though without a doubt it would not have happened. Without his incredible bravery envision for the country's future as a person abraham was described as good natured down to earth and a spokesman for the common man as a leader abraham was described at steadfast dedicated to his country into the task at hand. Whatever that may be the farm boy with no education would grow up to become one of the most respected in revered men in the history of his country without personally knowing abraham it is obvious that above all else his ideology was one of honesty. In virtue abraham was even willing to compromise on certain aspects of his views in order to maintain the integrity of the country as a whole that requires a strength and a belief in what you know in your heart to be right that is unmatched during his time period abraham was compared to another who was also adored in a mired president george washington abraham lincoln is legendary for uploading his beliefs in the face of overwhelming pressure and opposition simply unyielding to anything that threatened his country. Even its own people. When abraham was assassinated newspapers around the world reported on the loss of an individual of supreme moral principle honest abe was just that and he didn't need to be anything more because it was just simple. Honest abe who changed the course of the country forever. You can check us out at made of metal podcast dot com. You can also follow us on instagram. Facebook made of metal podcast altogether.

"Abraham that led to this moment it seemed to be a complete failure on the surface for abraham but instead of it being the end of his career it catapulted him into the spotlight and gave him the opportunity of a lifetime to hold the highest political office of the united states as the president. I'd say it wasn't a defeat at all but a huge triumph in disguise. After pulling together his network of supporters abraham was able to do the impossible and was nominated as a presidential candidate on may eighteenth eighteen sixty at the republican national convention in chicago. At this point abraham had decided to focus all of his efforts on his presidential campaign putting his law practice to the rest and also creating a bit more stability in his party. We know was tough for him to put that law down Ramified you know. He was really dedicated. The democrats are reeling at the time divided while the republicans were trying to prevent a repeat of the dissemination of the whig party. The republicans were enlarge part composed of older members of the weight. Party abraham's goal which he'd said often was to bring the nation together and promote collaboration after his nomination abraham focused on connecting with the members inside his party bringing them together and leaning more moderately in his views. To avoid the divisiveness he'd witnessed. That brought the ends of the whig party in this election. Abraham ran against a total of four other candidates and won a clear majority of the electoral college. This of course meant that a farmer with about a year a former education that was born with close to nothing and without any clear advantages was elected as the president of the united states. Abraham was born without heuristic chrissy without access to the opportunities resources and networking that is usually available to those trying to achieve a position in a political office let alone one of the highest political offices in the united states so what had brought abraham to this point from a farmer to the president of the united states. Whatever it is it safe to say that it began within abraham himself. He had no clear leverage. No obvious path to the presidency. Just the desire to excel and bring the nation together. You have to give it to him although he was a flawed human being as we all are. It's quite satisfying a watches evolution. It would come in literally the nick of time because the country would need abraham strong leadership in belief in the union in the coming days more than ever. Unfortunately abraham was about to begin his journey into ruling a country that was completely divided. It's crazy to think that he'd call this. As abraham was quoted as saying the nation was becoming a house divided. This was a mainly because the expansion of slavery was becoming such a polarizing and partisan topic among the states with the southern states. Showing clear unending support immediately. Following abraham successful election. The first southern state south carolina would announce its decision to secede from the union abraham tried to prevent the impending conflict by introducing compromises to congress to essentially prevent further states from seceding. I like to highlight that. All this was going down before abraham had been officially inaugurated so he had even like officially started the job. When all this bs start having he essentially didn't even have time to celebrate his win before this impending war was creeping up on his doorstep although the compromises were able to buy a bit of time it wasn't enough to prevent the full succession. A total of seven states would secede from the union. inform the confederacy. This would mark the beginning of one of the bloodiest and longest wars that the united states had ever seen. And this is where. I'm going to stop in this episode. As we've covered a lot with abraham's early political career leading all the way up to his presidency the state of the nation would reach a boiling point and a volatility that even abraham could have predicted but without a doubt he stepped up and led the nation through crisis in a way that is beyond admirable in the next episode. We'll continue onto abraham's presidency and the insanity. That was the civil war. I liked to post some picks on my website of abraham lincoln before and after his presidency. So you can see just how weathered this man was by the end and before recording this. I'd actually visited gettysburg justice past weekend and really got to soak in a lot of the history and walk the battlefields and all that great stuff. I love history. If you guys can't tell so. I love visiting historical places and it was just so great to kind of like be there. You know boots on the ground and you know to to see all these monuments in into really really absorb what happened in gettysburg which was literally one of the bloodiest battles of the entire civil war.

"With a total of maybe a year of education after passing the bar abraham would move to the capital of illinois springfield and would begin work for several different law firms. Eventually abraham settle into a position as a partner in a law firm with william herndon. The pair were described as a dynamic duo with totally opposite personalities in practice styles. William was also ten years younger than abraham described as a bit more radical in much less practical in his dealings still. This proved to be a lucrative partnership. In abraham was making a pretty painting. He travel many miles to other county circuit courts in order to take additional cases and earn extra cash in terms of his track. Record abraham was a pretty damn good lawyer as well. He'd one landmark cases for the illinois central railroad as well as a murder case that involves someone abraham new personally. Interestingly enough the murder cakes allowed abraham to use some of the knowledge he'd acquired while working as a farmer with his family the witness claim to have seen the accused commit the crime by moonlight by full moonlight to be specific in response abraham pulled out in almanac and rush rinse the moon phase for that night in question which noted that there was no full moon or any moon for that matter thus the witness was not telling the truth and it would have been too difficult for him to identify the accused as he claimed. This was enough to sow doubt in the jury in his client was acquitted of all charges abraham bill in awesome reputation as a hard working lawyer representing businesses and banks alike as well as a few criminal cases while working as a lawyer for a variety of defendants. We begin to note abraham's ability to communicate directly in genuinely with the public and how this served him well when making his case to the judge and jury around eighteen. Forty abraham would meet the woman he would marry mary. Todd mary todd was a well to do woman from kentucky who was described as outspoken and raise within the bourgeois and aristo christie of kentucky abraham and. Mary had drastically different upbringings which caused much confusion when the couple announced their engagement which i thought was very funny like hilarious. Like who abraham and mary while never saw that. Coming abraham despise the classism that was rampant within the communities of the elite due to these stark personality differences. They would eventually call it their engagement. Initially just a year later the couple would reconnect and get married. Abraham and. mary had four children together but unfortunately only one of his children survived to adulthood. They were described as involved parents. Although abraham was often on the road traveling to various cases and political engagements as you can expect abraham's thinking and perspectives were much different than most individuals heat encountered growing up in mostly poverty without any guidance towards culture or education or even exposure to different ways of thinking outside of self study but the thing was abraham. Didn't this absorb his life experiences. He also incorporated the themes and ideas. He'd learned abraham would often quote shakespeare and other poets dabbled in the belief of dream interpretation. And even how period where he read a bit of comedy it was also reported that abraham always loved and appreciated the theater we can also see the influence of growing up as the every man having to work through the problems presented by lack of government support throughout the country and how much the people were suffering because of it there was one trait that never changed throughout his career which one would think would make being lawyer. Quite difficult and matt is abraham's commitment to honesty and transparency. Abraham would create quite a notoriety for himself as one of the most respected and sought after lawyers in the state of illinois and that was because he was discerning genuine and believed in the foundations of the legal system to be in favor of the common man of course his most famous nickname wouldn't be dubbed until much later but we see those traits and abraham very early in his life. What i did want to highlight is that much of abraham's lifeless spent working with the public from working on a railyard to a shopkeeper to the postmaster which takes you and put you squarely in the homes and eventually hearts of your neighbors. Anyone who has worked with the public understands how that experience can humble you in a way that no other can. We see later on abraham's career. How that really influence his work in law politics and other areas of his life that would change the course of history for the country as a whole so. This is where. I'm going to stop in part one with his early life in career in law in the next episode. We'll talk about his growing role in in state politics and his eventual rise on the national stage abraham lincoln was a multifaceted individual who is known for not only his steadfast beliefs but his ability to connect with people in a way that change their perspective. It helped the nation cope and survived an american revolution. So you can follow made of metal podcast on instagram and facebook.

Although this individual grew up with less than they would become one of the most honored and admired man in the history of the united states. This person had to struggle for most of their early life focused only on surviving in the coming days which were bleak at best. I personally love learning about this individual as i think.

Instead of viewing them as this inaccessible idle so today will be discussing the humble the humanitarian the honest abraham lincoln abraham lincoln was born on february twelve eighteen o nine in hodgin ville kentucky abraham was born to parents. Thomas and nancy who had two other children unfortunately one of abraham siblings would die in infancy abraham's father. Thomas is described as a strong home setter. Who instilled in abraham early the importance of hard work and manual labor abraham's mother. Nancy was a stay at home mom who took care of the house in children and was described as quite religious. We'll discuss a bit more as to how religion played a role in abraham's viewpoints. A little later on abraham's family lived on a farm in kentucky when he was born but his family would have to move to indiana. On abraham was only seven years old due to a legal dispute with their land in indiana abraham and his family had even less than they started with in kentucky which was not saying much upon arrival. In their new home abraham's father set up a rudimentary camp that was on public land essentially as they were extremely poor. The family lived on the land illegally. Keeping a low profile. As they weren't really allowed to be there they live the life of true pioneers eating only what they could hunt and farming and working the land a hard existence which required a lot of young abraham. Although farm life was all that abraham new later on in life he'd say he disliked the difficult living in particular that hard time spent hunting animals for food eventually. Abraham's parents were able to buy the land. They're living on sadly abraham's mother. Nancy would become sick and passed away in eighteen eighteen at the young age of thirty four. When abraham was just nine years old this event left abraham inconsolable as any young child will be after the sudden death of his mother just over a year later. Abraham's father would remarry a widow who also had three children of her own. Sarah abraham's stepmother which described as warm kind and caring to all of the children equally in particular abraham formed a close relationship to his stepmother later giving her the moniker of angel mother. so sweet. What isn't very well known about. Abraham is that both of his parents were illiterate with very little to no education. This was the norm for rural america. At the time as children simply didn't have the time to devote to former education as they were spending their days working on the family farms or they just completely lacked access to it. Abraham was described as an ever curious boy who endured learning and would even walk miles to borrow a book although his parents weren't educated abraham stepmother was supportive and encouraged scholarly pursuits. Its reported that. Abraham would have an estimated total of one year a formal schooling in his lifetime which he attended intermittently in starts and stops around eighteen. Thirty abraham and his family would make a second move from indiana to illinois in which abraham himself helped with hurting the cattle to the new location. Abraham was a young adult in his early twenties around this time and use his family's move as an opportunity to strike it out on his own. He was described as tall strapping strong making him. A perfect candidate for a variety of labor physicians abraham's early career included working as a boatman and most famously a rail splitter two jobs that required a good amount of personal strength and vigor to complete. He'd also worked a few jobs in a small town as a shopkeeper as well as the postmaster. What's the most interesting is. That abraham sue beginnings brought him in close proximity with other everyday working men and women who made up the majority of american citizens during this time period witnessing match struggle and also experiencing yourself leaves an indelible impression on a person's perspectives and values. We see those early life. Experiences influence abraham's career for his entire lifetime around eighteen thirty two the black hawk war began and abraham was selected to lead as captain of a group of local volunteers little bit of that militia action though his company was not involved in any actual battles. This was an important time. For abraham as he was able to use his position to begin networking within the political and legislative sphere. Abraham actually joked that he'd had more battles with mosquitoes than with the actual opposition. during this time period. The man had a sense of humor. You can give him that quite witty to when she read a bit more of his quotes after his military service abraham had garnered a bit of a following within his town working with so many volunteers. Showcase abraham's excellent leadership skills and ability to connect with his peers this momentum abraham was elected as a representative to the state legislature in eighteen. Thirty four it was around this time. That abraham began to pursue an interest in a career in law and politics and this is also a great little tidbit that i really enjoyed learning. When abraham decided to become a lawyer remember. He had very little formal schooling at this point. Although it was reported that he'd always had a knack for mathematics. Instead of this being a hindrance it seemed to spur him to dive right into projects that most people would have turned down even with a cushion of a formal education. So abraham did what he loved a new best he read abraham would spend his days reading commentaries on the laws of england completely teaching himself in passing the bar exam to become a practicing lawyer in illinois totally by self again.

"You see the demand is justified by works and not by faith. Only man is justified by works and not by faith. Only that is faith accompanied by the works and the actions of that face. That is not to say. I believe something to be true. There's plenty of people out there that do that. It is not even two inwardly. Hold this truth to be the case in the world. it must change the way we live. It must change the things that we do and we must then embody the calling that god brings in our life. Ken faith alone. Save you know and the question then becomes does your faith work. Does faith continue in obedience. Baptism if you're at that stage of your walk with god because it compel you to the point where you're going to do the things that god calls you to do because if it doesn't that says a lot about your faith and it doesn't say anything good about your faith if it's not compelling to the things that god is calling you to do than it is no faith at all. It is a worthless faith. Dead faith one. That will bring nothing to you in the end. But if you have the faith jesus says even of the mustard. Seed you qualify. I'm not sure but even a tiny bit of face we'll get you going. We'll get you started and we'll get you moving in the right direction and we can help you if you want to have the faith the monumental face the incredible faith of abraham perhaps the fourth greatest character in the bible you can you can follow his steps you can see his path and you can obey.

What would abraham do if he were sitting in the pew right now and he had not become child of god from the experience that i have with abraham he would say this some needs to be done right now and he would do it. He would accomplish in any way that he possibly could. As soon as he possibly could he would move with godly purpose. Are you moving with godly purpose. To make your life right with god tonight if you need to come back to the lord are you him and haunt about it or do you have the faith of abraham to say yes. Today is the day that i need to make my life right with. God wants more. I need to come back to him. I need to put these sins behind me. And i need to commit to this path. And if you're sitting here and you don't feel like you've been doing the things you need to be doing and you'd be living the life that god has called you to live to talk to the people that need to be talked to about their salvation.

"That's what heaven is that's what abraham was looking for. Because he knew that god would be the builder and maker of this of this world of this kingdom of the city of what he was. Offering abraham by faith. Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed and she bore a child when she was past the age because she judged him faithful who had promised we look before in hebrews eleven for six for without faith. It's impossible to please him. Free that comes to god must believe that he is and that he is a reward of those who diligently seek him gods reward of those who diligently seek him in abram diligently salt god when god told him to leave the cow. Dc left. When god told him to leave barron he left and he went to a place that it didn't know that he wasn't necessarily prepared for but he knew that god would bring him through and we need similar faith which brings us to the main point of abraham. He is called the father of our faith because abraham sets himself apart. God took the time set him apart. God took the time to remove abraham from all the things that we might associate with the prosperity of abraham or the faithfulness of abraham and god or abraham was faithful even through these things and so he sets himself apart in there in genesis. Fifteen we read just a few minutes ago versus one thirty six and in the summation of it. We see there in verse. Six abraham believed god and it was accounted to him for righteousness. This passage is quoted. As i mentioned before quoted explicitly three times not referenced. It's actually reference more than that. It is explicitly quoted three times in some of the most important doctrinal teachings that the new testament hands and it describes the intersection or the interesting relationship between faith and works something that you could probably attest to you if you deal with this world at all people in this world struggle with the nature of faith and works and so we'll look into these things abraham believed god and it was accounted to him for righteousness in romans chapter two and i hope he'd follow along with me. The book of genesis with an eye to the new testament in romans chapter two. So the three places it's quoted if you want a little reminder something that really sparked my memory of remembering where exactly they are the three times genesis fifteen in verse six quoted is romans four galatian three and james to romans four galatian three james to romans four relations. Three james to people say something three times. It's supposed to stick better. Maybe i should repeat six times in romans chapter two in verse seventeen. I know that's not romans were in romans. Two in verse seventeen says indeed you are called a jew and rest on the law and make your boast in god. This was something that jesus dealt with regularly. He actually talks to the israelites. He tells them that. They're not really being abraham's descendants. Because abraham wouldn't have done what they're doing to him. If you remember back weeks we talked about luke three and john the baptist when when these jewish leaders came out and he called them vipers. Who warned you of the impending destruction. He says bring forth fruits worthy of repentance. And don't say to yourself we have. Abraham is our father for god is able to raise up children to abraham from these stones. The jews have this knack for turning everything towards their relationship. To abraham like that settled every problem that solved every issue that any discrepancy or any problems that they had all i have to do is rely on the fact that i am abraham's descendant literally according to blood and everything's fine and he says no his will and approve the things that are excellent being instructed out of the law. He is being a bit ridiculous. he saying. This is you. Call yourself. Jews and you rest on the law and you make your boast in god and no his will and approve the things that are excellent being instructed out of the law and are confident that you yourselves are a guide to the blind a light to those who are in darkness an instructor or the foolish teacher of bath's having the form of knowledge and truth and the law you therefore who teach another. Do you not teach yourself you reach what a man should not steal. Do you. Steal and really. He's questioning these jews. He's talking these jewish christians saying you're trying you feel very capable of the law. You feel justified by the law and more important. The works of the law. You feel justified by this and you feel competent in your understanding of the law and you think your good teachers and he says and you teach people not to steal then steal and he's really challenging them here and they was well. That's not the that's not the point. That's not the point is that it doesn't matter if i steal it matters that you don't steal. That's what's important. Because i am a teacher of the law and that's my job. It's not to be a representative of the law. It's the law. And that's the people he's dealing with. He says you who say do not commit adultery. You commit adultery. You aboard idols. Do you rob temples you who make your boast in the law. Do you dishonor. God through breaking the law and the answer to this rhetorical question as in all rhetorical questions is yes yes you do you break the law and even to the degree. He's going to quote the old testament here in verse. Twenty four for the name of god is blasphemed among the gentiles. Because of you as it is written for circumcision is indeed profitable if you keep the law but if you a breaker of the law your circumcision has become circumcision. And so the issue. That paul's talking about here is that they tied their faith to both abraham and circumcision and they said but i'm a child of abraham and then when you pushed it a little further they said yeah but i have been circumcised fantastic and he says therefore if an uncircumcised man keeps the righteous requirements of the lull will not his circumcision be counted a circumspection. And we'll not the physically uncircumcised if he fulfils the law. Judge you who even in your unwritten code even in your written code and circumcision are a transgressor of the law. He says where's your faith. Is it in obedience or is it simply in two qualities that you may very well have had from birth well birth and than eight days later two things that you had nothing to do with. He says they are putting all their trust in two things. They had nothing to do with that. They are descendants of abraham control that and that they were circumcised the eighth day. You ll also don't control that and those are the people that he's talking to here in what's real fun is if you.

"Seventy five years old. God sets him apart. We use the term holy and sometimes we imply or we assume that there is an intrinsic spiritual quality to the word holy. And and there's not it's used in ways of talking about things that are spiritual like the holy place but the reason that it's holy is because it set apart is because it is exceedingly set apart because that's what the word holy means if i were to take my cell phone and i would move it there. It is set apart from the other things that are on this podium. It is wholly by that definition. Abram was holy to god and god demonstrated that holiness for year in genesis chapter twelve. When he tells abram to leave abram go. You're going to leave your house. You're gonna leave your family. You're going to leave everything that you know of comfort behind. And you're going to go to a land that i tell you about a million going to tell you where you're going or how long it's gonna take or how far it is. You're just going to go but a major promises. What does abram do there in verse. Four he goes he just leaves. He takes god and his word and he goes and we see the fruition of that decision. That incredible decision that incredibly difficult decision but that correct decision through the rest of the bible in all honesty. Which is one of the reasons one of many reasons that i think that abram or abraham that the same person is the fourth most important character in the bible in extra after seven so important as abram in extra after seven if you pick up in verse one. I really like when new testament writers do this. See what what luke records here in. Seven is a sermon by. Excuse me a sermon by philip. Noel stephen sermon by stephen who was a very very incredible character. And you only get to know him. Sadly for two chapters. He shows up in chapter six. He's one of the individuals that are appointed to take care of things for the grecian widows and then in chapter seven eight follows him into talking to the jews about the nature of god and about how important jesus is in the plan that god has brought to fruition in chapter seven in verse. One he is going to give a history any inspired writer which means that god is behind him. These are the things that god considers important historically to the quality of the israelites. Within what stephen is trying to get out he says the high priest said are these things so and he said brethren and fathers listen. The god of glory appear to our father abram or when he was in mesopotamia before he dwelt in herrin and said to him. Get out of your country and from your relatives and come to a land. That i will show you. Then he came out of the land of the caldeans dwelt in herrin and from there when his father was dead he moved him to this land. In which you now dwell in god gave them no inheritance in it not even enough to set his foot on. But even. When abraham had child he promised to give it to him for possession and to his descendants after him but god's spoken this way that his descendants would dwell in it for in a foreign land and that they would bring them into bondage and oppress them four hundred years and the nation to whom they will be in bondage. I will judge said off after that. They shall come out and serve me in this place. Then he gave him the covenant of circumcision. And so abraham isaac circumcised him on the eighth day and isaac jacob and jacob got the twelve patriarchs. And if you continue to read nine you would hear the rest of his sermon. It's a fantastic sermon. Filled with historical qualities of what happens to israel the abn the flow of the righteousness of the people and it really hits that hard because what he's pointing out is that the righteousness of the people. That are standing there with stephen that day. We're not very high. And he's going to demonstrate. The gods people have not always been righteous. The gods people have not always been they should have been and i have to imagine he is staring them down this whole time. And the implication is obvious. It seems to them. Are you these juicy talking to are you. Which group of jews are you. Are you the eb or the flow. Are you the rise of the fall of righteousness and the answer was pretty obvious. What an excellent excellent sermon. An excellent example from this in hebrews chapter eleven in verse eight he says by faith abraham dwell obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance and he went out not knowing where he was going by faith dwelt in the land of promise in a foreign country dwelling in tents with isaac and jacob the heirs with him of the same promise if we saw the second three names. You're going to hear a lot as we go through the old testament if you were to read through the old testament or even quite a bit of the new testament you will hear three names. Come up a lot. Abraham isaac and jacob. Those are the three genealogies. Abraham has isaac. Isaac has jacob. But if you remember maybe maybe dig around in your brain a little bit. And maybe you remember the old testament. The law of moses demanded that on two or three witnesses every testimony would be established. He makes a promise. To abraham that's sufficient to establish his covenant so he makes it to isaac and even though he could've stopped isaac he tells jacob as well it gives them the same promise tells them the same things and even though these individuals would not own or possess the land of the promise land they would dwell in it as foreigners as pilgrims that sound familiar they would be called out of a land where there was comfort her relative security that seemed normal to them and called into a place into an area to a lifestyle that was very foreign and they were called to be holy and set apart from the land and the people of the land. I imagine that sounds pretty familiar. To abraham isaac and jacob are excellent examples to us in part because of the part they play in getting the people of god to where they need to be we are the pilgrims in this world. We are the people who need to be set apart. Who set ourselves apart. For the glory of god that don't partake in the wims of this world and the desires of the flesh but in fact live spiritually as abraham did give ourselves over to the calling of god for he waited for a city. I love this. This is what abraham did this is by. He dwelt in the land of promise. He says for waited for the city which has foundations whose builder and maker is god. That's what abraham was waiting for. He wasn't satisfied with having a bit of property. Here in the promised. Land god promised in far greater and god has promised us for greater. But how often do we just accept less health and do we just take what we think we can get out of the deal rather than really enjoy ourselves to the promises of god and of heaven. God is offering this a place in eternity with him. A place of joy in pisa place that lacks tears and sorrow a place that the bible can't describe in a way other than physical because we are physical beings but imagine all the things that go on and then imagine it's even better than how the bible describes because.

"In jesus naming pray man. Our faith word of the day explains what abraham did for the people of sodom. He asked god to spare them if he could even find just ten righteous. Men abraham interceded for the city which means to speak on behalf of someone else for an example in our churches when a pastor and people pray for the world we are interceding for them. Speaking to god especially on behalf of those who cannot or do not speak to him. Like abraham did yes he spoke to the lord both for the righteous who lived inside them but he also spoke for the unrighteous people. They're begging the lord not to destroy them but instead to give them more time to repent and believe there are many people in our lives whom we know that we can bring before our father in heaven and pray for them. Also that our lord would shine his mercy and grace and love upon them to so that they may turn from sin and believe in jesus and isn't that what jesus does for us in heaven. He intercedes for us to god and he did that. First and foremost on the cross so our faith at the day is intercede something that you yourselves can do as you pray for.

"Usually when we hear the events of sodom and gomorrah. It's a message of judgment. Or fire and brimstone of wrath and anger of ninja. Angels like that on the bible. Tv show way. What do you mean usually except for that. Ninja angels part. But that's exactly what we think of when we hear of sodom and gomorrah god destroying them for unrighteousness and corruption. Just like the time of the flood. I know but i think this a rather interesting more positive message in our story today that we can focus on. I mean wouldn't it be better to remember the faithfulness of the lord his patients with centers and his desire to save rather than destroy go. Then you talking about interceding. Abraham exactly and our young guests are with us right now for us to talk about what happened before the cities of sodom and gomorrah were away. I don't wanna give away the ending so high kids. I know as a quick reminder. During the lord's visit with abraham and sarah for you guys when he told them that isaac will be born within a year the lord also reveals abraham something he is about to do and unless that there were some cities that were in newer abraham lived at a time. Two of them were called sodom and gomorrah and god tells abraham that he's about to destroy these two cities for their great wickedness. Now do you live near family. Kids like grandparents or aunts and uncles and cousins. I do I have lots of neighbors. You have lots of neighbors. What about your grandparents. Grandpa lives nearby. It takes a long time to get to the first one. Okay and you don't have family nearby do you. Well abraham's nephew lot actually lives in sodom with his family. And abraham knows how the people of those cities are faithless wicked and evil. They did not listen to god or obey him they pretty much did whatever they thought was right in their own is like when the children don't listen to their parents or or one adults do bad things yet but even worse sodom and gomorrah were not good places for god's people to live in god himself so as abraham walks with the lord. He starts praying. Do you guys know what praying is. Yeah what is praying. Talking to god's through By both it is talking to god through words. And what do you usually do when you pray. Play to d we fold our hands. We closure is so. How is abraham praying. When he's talking to god like you said is in praying when we fold our hands. Bow our heads and close our eyes and talk to god. Yes we do to help us concentrate. We pray but brain really is simply talking to god's words and thoughts the way we're him knows that the lord is planning on destroying him he also knows the lord is faithful to his promises. He is the lord of life merciful and gracious slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. So abraham wonders if there are believers in sodom and gomorrah will god destroy them along with the wicked. What do you think. Do you think god would destroy the righteous now. Know that doesn't seem like something god would do. Remember noah no one watches on the face of the earth. Except noah and his family and god saved him eight souls. all abraham wonders the same. Here it sounds as if abraham's bargaining with god doesn't it. Do you ever try to do that with your parents. Get them to agree to do something for you. You don't what about when. Maybe maybe you should consult with their parents. You mean to tell me you haven't bargained to watch a movie okay. That's what i thought. But keep in mind. Abraham is praying to the lord knowing the lord loves his people so he asks what if there are fifty righteous people. Far be it from you. Oh lord to sweep away. The righteous with the wicked did abraham know and trust the goodness of the lord. So the lord responded for the sake of fifty. I will not destroy it fifty people. That's not a lot. Surely fifty could be found. Don't you think yeah fifty in one city. No maybe an as city but not this particular city. Could they fifty no. they couldn't. y'all think abraham knew. That wouldn't be possible that's why he very very very humbly asks again. Abraham keeps asking god about how many righteous people he might find to save the city's forty five maybe than forty then thirty then twenty and eighteen eighteen but but then ten and the lord responded every time for the sake of the righteous for the sake of ten in that city. I will not destroy it so after our bible reading i remember one of you said i'm not really sure what that reading was about. Do have a little bit better idea about what happened. Abraham i do. Yeah abraham was praying to god for those ten righteous people. He was trying so hard to save the city. And so what. Courage abraham had as he walked by face and what mercy and grace of god to hear abraham and listened to him and now the search for ten righteous people in sodom and gomorrah takes place and we will find out if god finds those ten people next week. Let's close with prayer. And this week pastor glaze. Can you lead us. Sure let's pray. Dear heavenly father had any farther. Thank you for listening to our prayers. Thank you for listening to our players and always acting as acting. According to.
