Jim Hanson Fills in for Dr. G With Special Guest Gordon Chang
"In Seb's chair while he's down at fort Bragg talking to our special operators. But I am actually happy and sad to be joined by Gordon Chang because the fact that he's joining us is a sign that once again, China is doing things that we're doing badly to counter. I want to make sure you follow him on Twitter at Gordon G Chang. And his book the coming collapse of China can not come soon enough. Welcome to the show, Gordon. Thank you so much, Jim. Well, look, I think there's plenty. I want to start off in the less obvious of the two really bad things that happened recently, but China managed to get a deal done between our enemy Iran and our somewhat ally, the Saudis for a rejuvenation of diplomatic ties between those two countries. This is barely two years after the Trump administration managed to get a couple of gulf Arab states to sign deals with the Israelis to increase relations. Have we really flipped that far, the U.S. is no longer a power broker in the Middle East and the Chinese are there too? Yes. Actually, America's Middle East policy under the Trump years was like the best since FDR. But Biden's is clearly the worst ever and we're seeing that because as you mentioned, Saudi Arabia was a firm friend of the United States was supporting our efforts. We had the Abraham accords, which president Trump should have won the Nobel Prize for. What Biden has done is he's reversed all that progress in the matter of a couple of months. He did that by trying to isolate the Saudis and this is not a very good story for the United States. No, and

Israel Doesn't Need America's Help With Domestic Affairs
"Center cotton in terms of your lawyer and you're on the judiciary committee. When you see Americans lecturing Israelis on what to do with their court system, do you respond as I do, which is it's none of our business. That's a domestic issue we should not be hectoring them on either way, but if you're going to hack or at least be consistent with your position taken in the United States and the left is not doing that. I was in Israel last month. I was very clear about this at the time. I'm entirely confident that Israelis of all political persuasions can manage their own domestic affairs. They don't need the help of America to manage their own domestic affairs. They do need the help of America, however, to help broker peace agreements with their neighbors as we saw with Abraham accords under president Trump. They do need help to counteract the common terrorist threat that threatens both our nations and they certainly need help to counteract the Iranian nuclear threat. That's what Israel needs America's helps do. They don't need American politicians meddling in their own domestic affairs. I will

A Meditation on Luke 16:19-31 for the 2nd Thursday of Lent
"Say slowly from your heart. Jesus. I trust in you. You. Take over. Become aware that he is with you. Looking upon you with love. Wanting to be heard, deep within your heart. A reading from the holy gospel, according to Luke, chapter 16 versus 1931. Jesus said to the pharisees, there was a rich man who used to dress in purple and fine linen, and feast magnificently every day. And at his gate there lay a poor man called Lazarus, covered with sores, who longed to fill himself with the scraps that fell from the rich man's table. Dogs even came and licked his sores. Now the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to the bosom of Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried. In his torment in Hades, he looked up and saw Abraham a long way off with Lazarus in his bosom. So he cried out. Father Abraham, pity me, and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water to cool my tongue. For I am in agony in these flames. My son, Abraham replied, remember that during your life, good things came your way, just as bad things came the way of Lazarus. Now he is being comforted here while you are in agony. But that is not all. Between us and you, a great gulf has been fixed to stop anyone if he wanted to, crossing from our side to yours, and to stop any crossing from your side to ours. The rich man replied, father, I beg you then to send Lazarus to my father's house. Since I have 5 brothers, to give them warnings so that they do not come to this place of torment too. They have Moses in the prophet, said Abraham, let them listen to them. Ah, no, father Abraham said the rich man. But of some one comes to them from the dead, they will repent. The Abraham said to him, if they will not listen either to Moses or to the prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone should rise from the dead.

Finding God in History Today Is a Tricky Business...
"I'm back with zeb Weinstein director of international affairs at the city of David foundation in Jerusalem. You can follow him on Twitter and observes the EEV or ENS DEI N and we're talking about Israel and the Bible. So if you made a striking point where you said that, you know, it's one thing for us to believe that God was once active in the world. In fact, certainly if you look at the Hebrew scriptures and the very beginning God is talking to Adam and Eve. He seems to communicate in a very direct way with Abraham, even with Moses, they may not see his face, but it's unmistakably him. And yet then there's a movement in the Hebrew scriptures in which God seems to somewhat recede. His relationship even to the middle prophets is not as direct. And then later, God seems to be in the same position as these now. So I think the point you're making is that finding God in history today is a trickier business. And yet, you do have explicit predictions in the Hebrew scriptures that the Jews will return. I mean, that's unmistakable. Bible prophecy can be a little cloudy, but that's not cloudy. And here we are, and I want to highlight the sort of extreme implausibility of that event. And yet it occurs, you've had three wars, 1948, 1967, 1973, in every case Israel is victorious against massively combined army. So is this what you're saying that it seems like a combination of political and religious epiphany hit you at the same time and you want it to be in the middle of it. Faith is a choice. You could relate to the world as if it's just always been like that. Always will be like that. Or you could relate to the world that there is something bigger at play. And that we are as people created in the image of God that we have a certain purpose to fulfill the world, both individually and collectively. And the more I became aware of the history of the modern State of Israel and the return of the Jewish people to the land of Israel. And the world's obsession with Israel, not always positive, I realize there's something bigger at play and there's something that spoke to me again from a spiritual place of a feeling that perhaps when I was put in this world to do, had something to do with that.

Americans Shouldn't Be Proud of Only One Person
"This country now has one day in which it honors an individual, Martin Luther King day. It also had Columbus day, but that has been yanked by the left. So we used to honor Columbus and we used to honor George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. We only honor one person, Martin Luther King Jr., worthy of being honored. But not worthy of being the only person honored. They shouldn't be any one person honored. We should honor a number of people virtually every country does, I assume, to be an interesting question. Does France have any national holidays in honor of individuals? I don't know the answer, but it's an interesting question. Today then represents the decline. Of patriotism, you can not sustain a country if you do not imbue the next generation with patriotic feeling.

It Is Hard to Process That Our Government Has Been Lying to Us
"Hard to process for most of us that our government has been lying to us that the cultural leads don't have any of the homespun values that the founders of this nation did that Abraham Lincoln did that most Americans have from the beginning. Their cynical globalist elites, they don't believe in truth. That's a sucker's idea. They don't believe in honesty. And so they have lied to us and we have certain experiences in the past of when this happened. But it has risen to a crescendo of lying and obfuscation. And manipulation, unlike anything we've ever seen. So I want to say I understand why many people don't want to accept it. It's too painful. But we've seen a number of examples recently and what Naomi was talking about is the most dramatic example. It's the most pointed example of globalist elites allying themselves with the Chinese Communist Party to literally reduce the population of the world by murdering people and by destroying people's reproductive systems. You can't make that up. That's the sort of thing that never could have happened in the history of the world until now. We didn't have the technology and it is absolutely nightmarish. But because I'm a Christian, I have faith in the God of the Bible, he can heal people miraculously. He can deliver people from every kind of sin and bondage, and I think we have to put our trust in him. Well,

Chris Berman Gets Trolled
"So Chris Berman, more superposed stuff. Chris Burma made a comment. And boy, people mad, they mad they man. You know, it's funny that they got all these statistical data points that they want to push out there when it's social justice adherence. And they want to say all this unique stuff about other black quarterback and two black quarterbacks in the black quarterbacks, both date women and they both date women and their favorite positions in the I'm gonna leave it at that. Now, so they come out with all these statistical data points that nobody really needs to care about. But then when someone comes out with a statistical data point that's not woke or they may be flies in the face of wokeness or there's contradicting their entire theology of existence, they get mad. Chris Berman came out and made a comparison that you have to hear. Wrote a clip. Also, of course, two African American quarterbacks starting against each other in the Super Bowl for the first time fittingly. February 12th is Abe Lincoln's birthday. Here we go with the highlights and. Abraham Lincoln's birthday. Now you know that some people that believe Abe Lincoln was the greatest president and that Abe Lincoln was responsible for freeing black slaves. And it would be fitting, right? I mean, if they want to make a big deal out of two quarterbacks that are American of African descent on Abe Lincoln's birthday, I would argue that he was one of the biggest champions for free in black people. But you know the trolls amongst us can not accept that. Because this needs to be a moment where only black people have only black people. And you add a white person into the equation in that a man. And then he going crazy. And now they hate the world. I just wished that we could get along. And get over this race stuff. Now, I know that color exists race exists exist. But at every front, in our country, we should be trying to evade racial differences as much as we can.

Lindsey Graham's Hidden Agenda With Pedro Gonzalez
"Us now is Pedro Gonzalez, check out his substack contra, I'm a subscriber to it and I learn a lot. Pedro, welcome to program. I really want to talk about Lindsey Graham with you. I thought you had some of the best commentary on that. I'm a Trump supporter in 2024. And I am disturbed and bothered at Lindsey Graham's proximity to Donald Trump. Let's play cut 47 and then I want you to react to play cut 47. I am for Trump, not because of the flaws of anybody else. I'm for Donald Trump because I know what I'm going to get. We need somebody that on day one can get this country back on track that can secure our border and bring order out of chaos. Somebody the Russians and the Chinese fear. Somebody that can take the fight to the terrorist. They Abraham accords the result of Donald Trump in pressing the Arabs and Israelis. He is the best solution to the problems we face, not because of the flaws of others, but because what I know he can do. Does he believe that Pedro your reaction? I don't know, because Lindsay has built his career online to people and probably lying to himself. But I think the bottom line is exactly what you said at the outset that it's not a good sign that Lindsey Graham is in such close proximity to Trump. And the idea that Trump needs Lindsey Graham's support in order to win South Carolina that argument just seems to not make sense at all. And if that's true, that actually means that Trump has bigger problems than people, I guess, are aware of, right? If Lindsey Graham is critical to your success, that's not a good sign for your campaign. So really, there's no rational reason for the right to make excuses for Lindsey Graham's proximity to Trump. And I think that Graham is among the most pernicious in the GOP precisely for the reasons that I outlined the other night on Tucker Carlson, but I can actually go a little bit more in depth here because I have more time. But again, people look at people look at Graham and they see this kind of goofy character who's ultimately harmless, but he's not

The Multiple Attempts to Resettle American Slaves
"There was multiple attempts to try and resettle slaves that were brought to America, multiple attempts, and they were all largely unsuccessful because many of the slaves, especially freed slaves in the Met with Lincoln on this topic in this matter, said America is our home. We want to stay in America. We love this place. We don't love what's happened to us, but we see opportunity and we see a chance to flourish here. Abraham Lincoln had very specific plans it was called lincolnia was a proposed Central American colony that was originally proposed by Samuel pomeroy of Kansas in 1862. After Abraham Lincoln asked the senator and the United States secretary of interior, Caleb Smith, to work on a plan to resettle freed African Americans from the United States. Now, this gets really, I think, brutally mis told by so many of the kind of race people in the academy say, Lincoln wanted the blacks to leave America. No, he didn't. He assumed that many of them wanted their own country. And so actually one of the leading negotiators that pushed back against this idea was one of the great Americans ever to live Frederick Douglass. And Frederick Douglass said that he was very opposed to immigration. And the delegation then responded to Frederick Douglass's leadership. Frederick Douglas was one of the leading spokespeople of whether or not there was going to be an own country. And so basically this country was going to be in Central America right between what would be modern day Honduras. Now, mind you, there was a resettlement program. This is what other country went to such great efforts to try to bring slaves to back to where they came from as what we tried to do under president Monroe in Liberia.

The Heart of Israel
"And you'll get updates and you'll get. Whatever kind of information you might need to follow along. Today, we are going, as I said, genesis chapter 35 and 36 were continuing on with the story of Jacob now, Israel, and his family. And gosh, yeah, how the family is going to unfold. They're going to continue to grow. He's got a number of sons and they are getting older and things are getting complicated. Things are always complicated. Man, we yesterday, what it is suns do. His sons took vengeance upon the family of shechem, hamor, that whole entire family after they had agreed to make a covenant with them. Because she had raped their sister. And so the family continues to grow. This is genesis chapter 35 and 36. God said to Jacob arise. Go up to bethel and dwell there. And make there an altar to the God who appeared to you when you fled from your brother Esau. So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, put away the foreign gods that are among you and purify yourselves and change your garments, then let us arise and go up to bethel. That I may make there an altar to the God who answered me in the day of my distress, and has been with me wherever I have gone. So they gave to Jacob all the foreign gods that they had and the rings that were in their ears and Jacob hid them under the oak which was near shechem. And as they journeyed, a terror from God fell upon the cities that were round about them, so that they did not pursue the sons of Jacob. And Jacob came to lose. That is bethel, which is in the land of Canaan. He and all the people who were with him, and there they built an altar. And called the place el bethel, because their God had revealed himself to him when he fled from his brother. And Deborah, Rebecca's nurse died, and she was buried under an oak below bethel, so that the name of it was called Alan bakut. God appeared to Jacob again when he came from padan aram and blessed him, and God said to him, your name is Jacob. No longer shall your name be called Jacob. But Israel shall be your name. So his name was called Israel, and God said to him, I am God almighty. Be fruitful and multiply, a nation and a company of nations shall come from you and kings shall spring from you. The land which I gave to Abraham and Isaac, I will give to you, and I will give the land to your descendants after you. Then God went up from him in the place where he had spoken with him, and Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he had spoken with him. A pillar of stone, and he poured out a drink offering on it, and poured oil on it. So Jacob called the name of the place where God had spoken with him, bethel.

What Really Happened in Genesis?
"Somebody said Charlie, I really enjoyed your conversation on genesis. Can you do more of it? How do you believe genesis applies to our times today? And so I just want to preface this by saying I'm by no means a biblical scholar. I do not speak biblical Hebrew, but I do study the word and I love it and I'm actually spending a lot of time going deep into the Torah, which means teacher through mixture of commentaries, rabbi teachings, Dennis prager's rational Bible is terrific. And then applying it to today, because what is the Torah or what is the Bible have to teach us today and the answer is quite a lot. So to answer the question is one take on the kind of beginning of the Torah of genesis, which is genesis one through 11. So genesis one through 11 is very unique. It's a genesis one through 11. You could argue is the ultimate issues. Portion of genesis. Not to say that ultimate issues are not part of genesis 12 through. I think genesis goes to 50, right? Genesis 50 chapters on a second. Genesis 12 through 50. But it gets very historical, very literal starting in genesis 12, and it's just abruptly says God spoke to Abram, do this, do that. Leave your father's home, take saraya's your wife, you know, one thing after the other after gets very literal and the genealogy begins. But genesis one through 11, at times can seem somewhat abstract in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. That's very literal, but then it gets to the Garden of Eden and Cain and Abel, and the sons of Noah and then no way a covenant. And then out of nowhere, if you read the Bible and I encourage you guys to read the Bible in one year, you could do that with my wife's ministry, Bible in three 6 5 dot com that is Bible in three 6 5 dot com. You read genesis 9, all kind of flows, God's coming with Noah, and you read genesis ten, which is the table of nations, which is kind of this lineage. And then you read genesis 11, it kind of comes out of nowhere. So in genesis 11, it says now the whole world had one language and a common speech as people moved eastward, they found a place in China and settled there. Now this is not about the Jews. Or the people of the sons of no, the Jews don't really exist as a people yet. They have not been given that covenant Abraham or Abram has not yet existed. So it's kind of this one off story. And it's a very interesting story. It's the story of the people of Babel.

Day 12 of the Bible in a Year: Isaac and Rebekah
"If we go on to the story of the marriage of Isaac and Rebecca, in genesis, chapter 24. Now Abraham was old, will advanced in years and the lord had blessed Abraham in all things. In Abraham said to his servant, the oldest of his house who had charge of all that he had, put your hand under my thigh, and I will make you swear by the lord, the God of heaven, and of earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the canaanites among whom I dwell. But will go to my country and to my Kindred and take a wife for my son, Isaac. The servant said to him, perhaps the woman may not be willing to follow me to this land, must I then take your son back to the land from which you came? Abraham said to him, see to it that you do not take my son back there. The lord, the God of heaven, who took me from my father's house and from the land of my birth and who spoke to me and swore to me your descendants, I will give this land he will send his angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there. But if the woman is not willing to follow you, then you will be free from this oath of mine. Only you must not take my son back there. put his hand under the thigh of Abraham's master, and swore to him concerning this matter. Then the servant took ten of his master's camels and departed, taking all sorts of choice gifts from his master, and he arose, and went to Mesopotamia to the city of nehor. And he made the camels kneel down outside the city by the well of water at the time of evening. The time when women go out to draw water. And he said, oh, lord, God of my master Abraham, grant me success today. I beg you. And show mercy to my master Abraham. Behold I am standing by the spring of water, and the daughters of the men of the city are coming out to draw water. Let the maiden to whom I shall say, please let down your jar that I may drink. And who shall say drink, and I will draw water for your camels, let her be the one whom you have appointed for your 7 Isaac. By this I shall know that you have shown mercy to my master. Before he had done speaking, behold Rebecca, who was born to bethuel, the son of milka, the wife of nehor, Abraham's brother, came out with her water jar upon her shoulder. The maiden was very fair to look upon. A virgin whom no man had known. She went down to the spring and filled her jar, and came up. Then the servant ran to meet her and said, please, give me a little water to drink from your jar. She said, drink my lord, and she quickly let down her jar upon her hand and gave him a drink. When she had finished giving him a drink, she said, I will draw water for your camels also until they have done drinking. So she quickly emptied her jar into the trough, and ran again to the well to draw, and drew for all his camels. The man gazed at her in silence to learn whether the lord had prospered his journey or not.

Kevin Freeman: 'They'll Take the Country If We Don't Wake Up Now'
"I'm talking to Kevin Freeman. The book is according to plan the elite's secret plan to sabotage America. It's not a big book. And it's designed to help us understand what is happening. I mean, actually to understand what in the world is happening. So Kevin, people can find you at the economic war room on blaze TV. But just before we get to what we can do to save America and the world, what is this secret plan, what is happening, who's promoting this? Well, you know, Eric, if you look back in 1963, I think it was a Florida congressman entered into the congressional record, 45 goals of the Communist Party USA. And you've probably seen it. If you Google it, just read it. It doesn't sound like a list of goals. It sounds like a list of completions. Because it's talking about how we destroy the family. It's talking about degrading art in the public square. It's talking about capturing one or both of the political parties. Talking about taking prayer out of schools. And sexualizing children and making homosexuality normal and actually more normal than heterosexuality. All of those were listed. It first came in a book cleon scouse and wrote in the 1950s called the naked communist. And I happen to know cleon skeleton. I got to spend some time with him before he died. Bottom line is, is this has been the only way to take America down Abraham Lincoln said it, you have to take us down from within. You're not going to be able to land troops and take over our country. And so they set about to do it, and they've actually accomplished most of their goals. And they'll take the country if we don't wake up now.

"abraham" Discussed on Truth For Life Daily Program
"Remember, James is James addressing the individual who has already said someone will say verse 18. You have faith and I have deeds. In other words, I said, well, can we just separate this out? James says, no, we can separate it out. You can't go at it this way. Faith and deeds go together. That's what he's arguing. And so he says, he was his faith and his actions were working together. And his faith was made complete by what he did, and the scripture was fulfilled that says, Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness. What is James saying? He's saying that we can conclude on the strength of the evidence versus 24 that a person is justified by what he does in as much as this testifies to the existence of real faith, that's what James is saying. James is not saying that a person is put in a right standing with God as a result of works. He knows his Bible, if you like, too well to say that. He understands what Paul has been saying. He and Paul are agreed on that. Paul is making sure that at the front end, the person who wants to use works as entry into heaven is confronted by solar FIDE, James is concerned that the person who wants to hold on to some scrap of testimony of paper that he once became a follower of Jesus and has done nothing about it and never gone on.

"James is arguing that where such a relationship has been established works are an essential evidence. Now, when we consider Abraham, we will be helped. Because James calls him as his witness. And he's a very good witness, and I wish actually that verse 23 preceded verses 21 and 22, but it doesn't, but we're going to consider 23 first. The scripture was fulfilled that says Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness, and he was called God's friend. Now, I think it would be helpful for us to just go back to where this was all taking place. The first book of the Bible, genesis, and to chapter 15, and it's there in genesis chapter 15 that the incident to which both Paul enrollments for, as well as in other places in his letters, and James here in James two takes place. It is the record of God's entering into a covenant with Abraham. He's come to him in genesis 12. It's recorded and told him that through him, all the peoples on earth will be blessed to quite amazing statement. How God did this and the way in which it unfolded, we don't know, but God comes, it appears to Abram and gives him this promise. In 15, he comes and he says, don't be afraid, Abram. Which is interesting greeting. I am your shield and you're very great reward. Abraham replies, sovereign lord, what can you give me since I remain childless? First, then the word of the lord came to him this man will not be your heir. That is the man from his servant. But a son is coming from your own body who will be your heir. And verse 5, he took Abram outside and said, look up at the heavens and countless stars.

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.

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.

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.

Shmegegge martini guarded. Charge mitzvahs mitzvahs. Who does i. My statutes vittore cy and my toros. The verse is explicit. That abraham heartened to god's voice guarded god's charge and mitzvahs and statutes and ras and rashi explains. What does this mean. Abraham harkened to god's voice when god tested him and abraham guarded veal mighties charge by keeping rabbinic law. And abraham guarded the mitzvahs.

So we have a verse here. Which kind of grants his whole idea that. There's torah that exists before sinai. And there's targets observed. By abraham is jacob and their families and we have an explicit versus. That says that abraham observed at all the time of the book of yoma says even further even rabbinic law even the laws of era of abraham observed. This is an astonishing thing. Centuries before sinai abraham observed altero presumably abraham war fillon abraham head sits on the corners of armaments. It's abraham hannam zuza on his door post.

You cannot be married two sisters. Well how did jake two sisters. He married rachel. La natura partial spoiler alert. How did he married. Two sisters if jacomb observe the whole thera-.

"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..

"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.

"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.

"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.

"And growing that into something monumental in meaningful the individual will be talking about today has a story that really epitomized that ideal. 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. There's a lot of little tidbits that really humanizes figure. 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. The lord's will. What would abraham do the twenty first century. 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. You need to share in all common things. You need to benefit the body of christ in some way. What abraham do he would commit to it right now. He would give his whole life to it as he left the calories committing to the lord's will however we can help you tonight. Put your life right with. God we certainly want to help. And however we can let us know us together. We stand insane..

"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.
