An Excerpt from the book Flirting with Darkness by Ben Courson

"An excerpt from the book flirting with darkness. Ben. Carson. Weapon number three, the magic number of greatness. I got to a point in my struggle with depression where something needed needed to change must suffering. So badly, I finally decided to do something about it. The ten thousand hour rule saved my life. His Book Outliers Malcolm Glad well demonstrated that to be truly greeted anything. You have to put in ten thousand hours of practice. People such as world chess champion Bobby. Fischer businessman Bill Joy, and IBM founder Bill Gates are among the many examples. Glad. While gives of people who excelled because they accelerated they focused and worked hard and gave at least ten thousand hours to becoming the best at what they did. Glad will show that whether you want to be a fiction writer or master criminal. Hockey player or a pianist ten thousand hours was the magic number of greatness. Bent my mind to that goal is a writer Manspeaker. A resolved to stop wasting my energies, processing psychological trauma and to go on a diametrically opposed direction. Instead of disappearing over why dreams weren't coming to pass, I decided to commit myself to working my fingers to the bone to ensure they did. Psychologists, John Hayes quote looked at how long it took the best composers of all time to create their first grey work. He found that nobody including Mozarts was a child prodigy had produced a piece of work of any significance until about ten years after they had I, taken music no amount of innate talent even in a field of genius such as music could overcome the years of practice necessary to Korea work someone may be talented. They may be lucky but they still have to go through ten years of practice in order to become a master and quote. When Churchill came to power during World War Two he said this as he was being inaugurated into office as prime. Minister quote. I. Offer you nothing save blood, toil tears, and sweat and quo. Lecture Chill Ready to go to battle anew, the path will be difficult PROC- ready to claim own finest hour. Getting better stars, which is getting off your tuition in doing something. So I did. My goal was to become a writer and a speaker put in the needed hours. My nearly worked myself to death, but it was infinitely better than brooding found the effort. Cathartic in fulfilling my spirit's began to lift. I figured I had two options number one either get discouraged that my dreams were not coming pass or number to spend the effort of getting prepared for when they did. Legendary preacher Charles spurgeon advised students to stop worrying about when they would get their shot at speaking and concentrate instead on their ability, and they'll let God take the opportunity in other words quit fretting over the how and focus on the what I took these words to heart and focused on my skill set as I improved my craft, our English word amateur comes from a French Italian an line route which means to love an obvious works when he loves the process and it feels good a professional is someone who worked seven days a week whether he feels like it or not. Today. My TV show hope generation is on twenty different networks more than one hundred and eighty countries and radio shows heard on more than four hundred stations daily. I get to speak in stadiums and arenas. My quote unquote overnight success came through hours of hard work. How you'll spend your ten thousand hours may be different from how I spend mind but you'll find as I did a clear focus and a way of getting off the existential treadmill of despair, transform your life but the age of twenty one, the average American has put ten thousand hours of practice into computer and video games when I use those hours for something more productive. How hard you hustle in the darkness determines how brightly you shine in the spotlight. To prepare for speaking to people I got really good at lecturing my furniture. My chairs were my captive audience I remember that Billy Graham. One said he got his start by preaching to alligators before he preached in stadiums. You have to start with a small stuff and work your way up. So I took every opportunity that presented itself. I spoke to classes of little kids and homeless shelters at old folks, homes, and to student clubs I volunteered to take the opportunities. Others turned down, I got lots of practice. When other speakers turned an organization or church down my said, yes I did this I several years Only the small minded person will refuse the small task for me if I had an audience of four people those enough to get some more practice to put in some more hours toward my ten thousand our goal. Jesus said that if you're faithful and a few small things, you'll be given responsibility over bigger ones Matthew Twenty five that sound good to me. Yes sometimes I did feel like surface the tragic here of Greek mythology who had to roll a boulder of a hill only to see roll back down then roll it back up again only for it to roll back down again repeatedly, I'll stubborn in my pursuit it was a great weapon against despair to keep working in spite of how I felt, which puts me in the mind of a scene from Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings in the First Book of that trilogy the Fellowship of the Ring, a band of warriors is commission travel to the ends of the Earth to destroy the evil ring of power by casting it into mount doom. During their long journey. Gandalf who was their leader was thought to be killed in the minds of Maurya in response airborne stepped up to lead the band in his stead amid his grief and despair he cried out farewell Gandalf what hope have we with you then he turned to the fellowship and said, we must do without hope let us gird ourselves and weep no more come. We have a long road. Like that trek to mount doom healing is usually a long journey. We normally don't start feeling better overnight sometimes, we must go on when we feel absolutely no hope. Our quest leads down a winding path and his sometimes fraught with trolls and Goblins and all manner of Dr Treasures. But psychological heroism is possible in such journey is were taking like Eric Gordon Frodo my set my foot upon my own path out of depression I gave them my flirtation with darkness and began to tread the road toward a grand purpose and it worked after many many years. The Dreams I had begun to despair finally came true new ones came into sight, but it all began by putting one foot in front of the other. If you allow yourself to just sit around and partly catatonic state stuffing yourself with junk food is a form of therapy and watching callous hours of television. You'll probably never start feeling better. But I. Tell You that you get off the couch and venture into the world to do something toward your goals. Things will start to change in your heart and mind if you pull yourself out of bed and get going on your dreams, that's how you'll will begin the journey to healing your broken spirit.

What was Before the Beginning?

"Most people start reading genesis they, they don't stop to go what was happening before the beginning right in saying and she's ready. The. Question to the book, start the Genesis starts realtime action with the beginning I mean. So you're already in the flow of it. So this is kind of stepping back and saying, okay well, what was happening before that actually started? So who was there? I mean They're a bunch of stuff going on. There are a bunch of people there. was there a big you know meeting talk about it with turtles way down who was there? Yes. So The way I understand it I think the way the Bible describes it is there was nothing everything is dark for was void try to. If you can nothingness like nothing nothing nothing nothing other than got. Got The. Only thing that there is got is the only thing that is a being that is in existence in he is entirely created actually had somebody asking me question the other day here at the church. I pastor now and they said jt glad you're here I've wrestled. This is a this is a kind of an older saints who've been walking the Lord for forty fifty years. And he said to me, he said agent at this intellectual question for the entirety of my walk with the Lord. Laird, God come from. In ease asking the question like who made godwit gut come into being, and that's a very common question in the Christian response to this is God didn't come from anything didn't start anywhere. He is the thing that is probably most distinct about God in this is what we learned last year in the apostles creed is that he is the maker he is the he is the one who has unmade. His created exists entirely distinctly enough himself in Trinidadian relationship father son and Holy Spirit. So the first thing we want to say before we even get into Tyrian ISM if you want to go down that path is before anything. got. Yup. Yeah. That's and it's pivotal because specifically when we're talking about who got is reference to these first chapters of Genesis, we often use the language of creator creature distinction right exactly, and that might be one of the most important distinctions. Bible makes in that we have in theology is that God is entirely. In of himself yeah. Absolutely. that. He is qualitatively different. Than anything else he is utterly unique. As. One of the ways when I teach this that I get people to sort of have this hit home as I say, right you gonNa make a chart and on one side you're gonNA. Label call them things that are created and then on the other side you're GonNa label it things that are created and then on the left hand side things that are created for you right? Right God. And then on the right hand side where you're going to write. Everything else like there's there's nothing that was not the did not That does not have got us its origin. Yeah. Yeah. So We. Start there with talking about God is Creator in Genesis clearly displaying this, that God is creator everything else is created but who is this guy jt? You mentioned it kind of when you were talking about that. This is trinity right God his father son and Holy Spirit, and so are we talking about three different gods up they're all discussing with one another are we in collaborating with one another are we talking about one God who has three different roles? Who are we talking about when we're talking about this God who is Father Son and Holy Spirit? Yes. I think there's just clues that are given to us in genesis some people like to go to genesis worn twenty six or the texts says, let us which shows some kind of divine plurality. There's lots of ways to to interpret probably better for us on suggest to go to the New Testament Charles spurgeon has analogy where he talks about God has always been trinity, but it's kind of like walking into a room where there's furniture everywhere in the old. Testament, the lights are off in a new testament. You're turning the lights on none of the furniture was placed there during the New Testament it was there the whole time, but you can now see it better. So canonical, it's actually probably better for us to to move our way backwards if God is if there's only one God. In he is trinity and that's what we see clearly in the New Testament in the churches confessions than that must be the same God who existed before creation, and so the way that we understand Trinitaria relations in the New Testament is that there are three persons in one God. Our definition for Trinidadian is is that God eternally exists as one essence in three distinct persons, each of whom are fully God yet, there's only one God so. Policy for a second. Could you could you go back and say our definition of the trinity is just kind of repeat that real slowly? Yes. So our definition of the Trinity is God. Eternally exists supposing there that he that's what we've just been talking about. He is eternal. He has not come into being he is the Creator and maker of all things. So so always been always will be it's right. Okay and and never will never came into existence never has ceased existing never will cease to exist

"And I want the things of God. This is what Jesus meant. When he said in Mark Nine, he said this this kind. Can only happen in prayer. He's rebuke the disciples. Because there's a young boy whose possessed. And the disciples said, why couldn't we cast it out Jesus and he said because this kind You. Want that eternal God stuff. It only happens through prayer. Let me let me tell you what I'm talking about. Charles spurgeon. He, was asked about his success ministry. Did you know what? He said his response? Newark. Newark. It's talking about being on your knees in prayer. Charles Finney after preaching to complete ear religious congregation all lost people saw the entire congregation of thousands of people fall before God on the floor crying out in agony over their sin. And when they asked if. That happened. You know he said. For. We said, time. God's work done. God's way. That's through prayer. Never lacks. God's support never never never. And yet. So often I hear people say this well, it's the least thing I can do. Let me just say this, it's the most we can do. Prayers and the last resort. It's the first response. And by the way and then all the way through all the way in the end and it never stops. We can pray if you've got your bibles one, invite you go to James Chapter. Five James Chapter. Five we have been in fourteen weeks of a series going verse by verse, the Book of James. Talking. About how do you develop a mature faith? A faith that really gets what it means to walk like Jesus to live like Jesus. To believe like Jesus and we're going to wrap it up talking about the power of prayer and. To us, we're going to begin at the thirteenth I, but James was a man of prayer. In fact, most people don't know this he had a reputation for it. Now, this is the half brother of Jesus. This is the brother who wasn't believing at the Cross. That later would write this most amazing book. And he understood the power in fact, he was given a nickname probably few. You even know he was known as old camel knees. When he walked the earth, he was known as camel knees because of all the hours he spent on his knees. And the incredible knots calluses..

"So let's talk about the process of us being transformed and us us us experiencing this piece and then us abiding in this piece step one. Romans chapter twelve versus one into. Policies I appeal to you therefore, brothers by the mercies of God to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do. Not Be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind that by testing, you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and is perfect. You see you even hear a little bit of six and Paul talking about the the belt of truth in Romans chapter twelve versus one and two. Because he's actually talking about that. You cannot go on thinking in the patterns of this world. In fact, the patterns of this world have to be removed from the way that you look at the world and from the way that you think and only then will your mind be renovated transformed so that you can find the peace of God. And so this is the process that leads to peace. Paul has just spent eight chapters from chapter one to Romans Chapter. Eight. Telling US The Gospel, of Jesus Christ the sin that separated us from. God. The faith in Jesus is finished work now makes us right with God and as we what he's telling US Romans chapter twelve is to think about the Gospel consider what Jesus has done for. You ponder about the mercies of God don't settle for somebody else's explanation of the Gospel. Dig into the word of God worship God for His grace rejoice in Jesus. For his victory praise your father for redemption and forgiveness. This is what Paul is saying is the first step in Romans chapter twelve verse one is to consider the mercies of God and as you do the spirit takes this knowledge of the reality of Jesus Work and uproots deception. UNBELIEV doubts distortions you see the spirit knows your enemy better than you do and his work as you abide in Christ as you abide in the word of God, his work will give you the stability in the face of the attack in the face of attacks old British preacher Charles spurgeon spurgeon said rough roads gross smooth when.

"Jesus Christ and believe on him. Now that is just the lack of these times where whereas earnestness now it's neither in the pulpits nor yet in the Pew as much as we need it and it is a sad sad age when earnestness is sculptor. And when that very zeal which ought to be. The prominent characteristic of the pulpit is regarded his enthusiasm and fanaticism. I go to make us all such fanatics as most men laugh at to make us all. Just such an says many despise we reckon it the greatest fanaticism in the world to go to hell the greatest enthusiasm upon to love sin better than righteousness and we think those neither fanatics nor enthusiasts who seek to obey goal rather man and follow. Christ in on his way. He's repeat that one proof the church wants. Revival is the absence of that death like sonum earnestness which was once seen in Christian pulpits. The absence of sound doctrine is another proof on need for revival. Do you know who are called. Anti no means now who called pipers who were laughter to a rejected as being unsound in the faith. Why the mend that. Once with the Orthodox now the heretics we can turn back the records of our puritan fathers to the articles of the Church of England to the preaching of Whitfield. And we can say that preaching. It is the very thing we love. But because we choose choose to reclaim them we are thought singular strange the reason is because some doctrine has to a great degree ceased. It began this way first of all. All the truths were fully believed. The little angles were taken off. The minister believes election. Didn't use the word for fear it should in some degree. Disturb the peace of the Deacon in the Green Pew in the corner. He believed that all men would deprave but he didn't say it out loud because if he did there was a lady who had subscribed to the Chapel. She would not come again so that while he did believe it and did. Satan some sense. He rounded it just a little an offer when it came to. This minister said we believe these auctions but we do not see them profitable to preach to the people that quite true free grace. It's true the great doctrines of race that were once preached by Christ by pull by Augustine by Calvin and down to this age by their successes. But they'd better be kept back. They must be cautiously dealt with. They're very deep and dreadful doctrines and they must be preached. We BELIEVE THEM. But We dan speak them out and then after that it came something worse they said within themselves well if these doctrines will not do for us to preach perhaps they are not truthful and going one step further. They said they dare not preach them. They did not actually say it but they began just a hint that they weren't true then they went one step further giving us something which they said was the truth and then they would cost us out of the synagogue as if they were the rightful owners of it and we were the intruders. So they've passed on from bad to worse and if you read the standard divinity of this age and the stunned divinity of Whitfield's Day you will find that the two cannot by any possibility stand together. We have got a new field. Edgy new theology. Why does anything butter theology? It is an allergy which is cast out God utterly and tiredly and enthroned man as it is the doctrine of man nor the doctrine of the everlasting God we want to revival of sound doctrine once more in the midst of the land and the Church Law needs a revival of down Roy earnestness in its members. You are not the men to fight the Lord's battles yet. You let earnestness this zeal. Which wants the children of God Hat? Your forefathers were Okun you we all people what many of them strong in doctrine when they are with strong doctrine men but they waiver when they get with others and they changes often as they changed their company. They're sometimes one thing and sometimes another they not the men to go to the steak and Dr. They are not the men that know how to die daily and so a ready for death when it comes look at our prayer metex with their abroad exception go in a there were six women. Scarcely ever enough members come to pray four times. Look at them prayer meetings. They're called sped meetings. They ought to be cooled for specially enough there attended and very few there go to our fellowship meetings or to any other meetings that we have to help one another in the fear of the Lord attended to. I'd like to see a newspaper printed somewhere containing list of all the people that went to these meetings during the week. In any of our chapels my friends. If they should comprise all the Christians in London you might find that a chapel of to hold them all. There are few enough that go. We don't have earnestness and we don't have life as once we odd if we. We should be called worse names than we are. We should have violent names thrown at us if we were more true twirl master. We should not have all things quite so comfortable. If we serve God better we are getting the church to be an institution of our land an honorable institution. Something a grand thing. When the Church becomes an honorable institution only think shows the churches swerved when she begins to be very honorable in the eyes of the Lord. She must still be cost out. She must still be cool evil and still be despised until that day will come when Lord on her because she has honored him even in this world in the day of his appearing beloved. Do you think he true the. Church one surviving. Yes no no you say the extent that you suppose we think the church is in good condition. We are not among those who cry the former days better than these. But you're not. You may be far wiser than we are. And therefore you're able to see those various signs of goodness which are to us so small that we are not able to discover them. You may suppose the church is in good condition if so of course you cannot sympathize with me in preaching from such a text urging you to such a prayer but there are others of you who are frequently prone to Croix needs reviving. Let me bid you. Instead of grumbling at your minister instead of finding fault with all the different parts of the Church to Cry Lord Revive. Your work says one if we had another minister over if we had another kind of worship if we had a different sort of preaching justice if it is it is over if the Lord with come into the hearts of the men have got if he would make the forms you do use full of power you do not want fresh ways of fresh machinery. You need life in what you have. There is an engine on a railway. A train has to be moved. Bringing other engine says one and another and another the engines brought up at the train doesn't move it to light the fire and the steamer. That is what you lack. Not Fresh engines. We do not want fresh ministers or fresh plans or fresh ways or fresh expressions though many might be invented to make the church better we only want life in what we have got a given the very man who has emptied your chapel given the self same person brought your prayer meeting low. God can make the chapel crowded to the doors yet and give thousands of souls so that very man. It is not a new. This is needed. It is the life of God in Him. Do not be crying out. Something new it know. More succeed of itself than what you have cry. Oh Lord revive your work. I've noticed in different churches that the minister has thought. First of this contrivance. None of that one. He's tried one plan and thought that would succeed. Then he tried. Mount wasn't keep to the old plan but get life in it. We do not need anything new. The old is better. Let us keep to it. But we want life in the old. Oh and cry. We have nothing but the shell. They're going to give us a new shell service. We will keep the old one the old thing but we must or else we throw the old away. Let's have life in the old that God would give us life. The church wants fresh revivals. A roofer the days of Kemba slang again when Whitfield preached power over the days. When in this place hundreds were converted sometimes under Whitfield sermons? It's been known that two thousand credible cases of conversion have happened under single sermon over the age. When I should be strained ear should be ready to receive the word of God and when men drink in the word of life since it is the very water of life which God gives to dying souls. For the age of deep feeling the age of deep thoroughgoing earnestness lettuce our score for it that is plead with him for it for C. Has the man or the men somewhere who will shake the world yet preps even now he is about to pull for the mighty influence upon men which will make the churches is wonderful in this age as it ever was in any age that has passed dot granted. For Christ's sake there's a part in the serving he goes. I know you're not all saved. Look at the crime. Stats of London. How can you all believers of crime is so high? Read the newspapers. It doesn't say those exact words we pretty much says that to them and it's such an amazing way to talk to your audience. Such a truthful an honest. Look at his people. He doesn't just assume they know God he goes look. I'm looking around me. I'm seeing the fruit and I see the crime stats. How can you be Christians? I A we say this a thousand times on the show but imagine a minister looking at his congregation and saying look you criminals. You can't be Christians if you're going to be acting like this. I also think that that is so there's truth there and there's a way of just speaking the truth and being blunt and being honest and not telling them what they need what they want to hear but telling them what they need to hear because if you want them to grow up into become Christians that are going to change the world and actually make a difference be remembered they need to be told the truth about themselves which is look. You're not producing fruit. That looks like Christian believing fruit and I really love the way Charles spurgeon does that I love the way he just goes after them and I really hope that that that continued desire will be in the church that we have not grown soft on telling people the Real Truth of the Gospel and who we really are which is centers. Yeah one of the reasons. I love revived thoughts looking at all these different areas. One of the things I find interesting is that every pastor always thinks that their generation is one of the most sinful generations you know even in today's society. It's not uncommon at all to hear a pastor. Salem look around us look look how often societies looks us and Florida's and I mean realistically. We were fallen people. Every generation is as fallen as the previous generation. But I do think it's interesting that spurgeon there's a point in there where he talks about how it's fashionable to go to church like he saying that everyone goes to church now. No one has taken this seriously. And what's more is that? It's it's a front. It's a disguise. He's so good with his poetry. He says at one point at the outside of the tombs may have become wider but within the bones are just as rotten as before saying that the these these people are going to church. They look like they're being spiritual but inside their bones are just as Rawdon as the rest of society and I mean that's kind of in contrast to current society where you know. More and more people are becoming unchurched there outside of the Church and people look at that and say what a central generation but here spurdens looking at people going to church and saying what is generation. It's just it's just it's fascinating to see people's view on humanity and how you know whatever era. Whatever time we're in we're.

"Yeah and we have a new host for that. Show that we're excited ring in Faneuil is the narrator for that show. We hope you make it a part of your morning routine. You can search for revivals in your podcast APP of choice now. Let's continue on with spurgeon Joel. It was interesting doing the research for this episode because I realized that the verse that spurgeon really centers on here back three two is actually one. He's done multiple sermons about someone wanted to go do more research on this. I kept running into these other sermons. It's not super important but it definitely seemed like this idea of revival and asking God to refresh. His people is something that really stuck out to Charles. Virgin it's something that he came back to a lot now. We've done to other sermons by Charles Virgin before and he. He's a familiar name. Our listeners familiar name to most of us they call him the prince of preachers. And you can check out. Those episodes are catalog. The first one a call to the depressed we interview the head of the spurgeon center talking about Charles. Spurgeon is wrestling with depression. I think it's a really important episode to listen to if you haven't listened to and also we did another episode on Charles spurgeon before where we were you and I actually asked. Adia was he. You know the great great patriots as they say and we kinda run through the stats. And I noticed that because even though we've done two episodes we've actually never really done a run down on his actual life like who he was yeah. They've all been kind of focused on moments in his life. Which I kinda like it when we do that. I kind of just kind of exploring a specific aspect of someone's life. We're going to be doing a little bit more of that here today. Focusing on a specific event in his life but as a quick recap spurgeon he was born in England in eighteen thirty four. His father and grandfather both already ministers and he said that his earliest memories was looking at the books. Pilgrim's progress and foxe's book of martyrs. Now you'd think that child being raised in a household full of ministers would be destined to follow Jesus from the get-go but that was not the case it really wasn't until he was about fifteen years old any set out one morning to go to a church service and he got caught in this terrible snowstorm in the snowstorm is what we're going to kind of focus on here today. Yeah I wanted to focus on the snowstorm because it's actually really cool in my mind how it happened in. Maybe you already have heard the story. I you know as I was reading doing research a lot of people. Yeah it's the old snowstorms story. But spurgeon is heading to church to hear his father preached but a big snowstorm does blows in it. He can't see where he's going cold shivering. He's probably soaking wet. I grew up in Florida. This wasn't really a problem. Had I remember the first couple times I got cut out in the snow? I couldn't understand why everyone didn't move to Florida. It's just absolutely awful. It's so betty spurgeon realizes he's not going to make it to church and so we actually just sees kind of building up ahead he sees as a church is I'm GonNa go for it and see if he opens the doors unlocked and there's some people inside and it's a little methodist chapel. Now if you're me I honestly. I've seen snowstorms storms nice on the road and I haven't wanted to go to church at all right like sometimes it's just too much and and for so many this would have been this huge inconvenience that kept them from going into who knows how many people didn't go to church that day and didn't hear the Gospel weren't able to but even though what would have looked like a bad day to everyone else God was using it to save. Something saved someone very important in that moment. And as I said some people wouldn't have been able to make it a church. Actually the minister of that Methodist Chapel couldn't make it to church that day he he could not make it to the chapel through the snowstorm. So the people in there he was with were kind of wondering what to do Spurgeon said he was the only young man in the church so was probably a bunch of old people in just him and he's a stranger to kind of walked into get out of the cold. I'd imagine this was an uncomfortable moment for him. I imagine he's feeling awkward. And kinda wishing the snow would let up so he could just leave. He sees his old man. Go Up to the pulpit. He wasn't a a learned me. It wasn't educated guy. This guy wasn't holding the big theological to theological degree up there. A surgeon calls them in his memoirs. Calls him a shoemaker. This was just a simple guy who loved God realized someone needed to get up and preach and he decided he was going to be that guy. That's right in. This guy didn't wake up ready to preach that. He had no idea about the snowstorm but he gets up there and he preaches the truth of the Gospel from Isaiah. Forty five twenty two which says turned to me and be saved all the ends of the Earth for I am God and there is no other and this old man does probably like the lease friendly thing that you could do to a new visitor at church. I don't know if you've ever been sitting in Church. And listening to this pastor speaking and have a moment of terrifying thought that like the pastor's. GonNa call you out individually in like point to you and speak to you in like preach directly to you by name. That's essentially what this pastor does. He looks at spurgeon and he points at Minnesota's young man. Look to Jesus Christ look look look you have nothing to do but to look into live as spurgeon said in that moment when that guy was talking directly to him he just he felt and saw the way to salvation to the Lord. I don't know if it's because he grew up in the church and he just had never really been challenged maybe because he was away from family ties and relationships had these expectations on on it. So we could kind of think about the question or just this old man's faith God's who whatever it was at fifteen. The Lord grabbed hold aspersions heart. It's really important to note to any as an important part. Trump's virgins life is. He really didn't go to school and I in the earlier episode we point. He didn't go to Bible College and get a seminary degree but he didn't actually even wouldn't have even gone to what would have been high school back. In his days you know so many of the guys on revived thoughts for these theological prodigies. And they're just they're unstoppable. That's not really spurgeon story. He he took a little bit of Greek on the side. He went to a little bit school but he didn't really go. Any further than an average student would or and especially in that time period and yet he'll end up with this mass of twelve thousand book collection and tons of his own personal writings. And annotations that are still being studied published today to see how God took somebody from where they were and made them something different. Yes spurgeon almost immediately started preaching and by seventeen. He was already at a church and he had outlines for his sermons that he preached but he wouldn't look at them. They said that he looked young. And yet spoke with such maturity within a year and a half. There was a church in London congregation of two hundred and thirty two people that asked him to come there. This church loved hearing him speak and they wanted him to stick around for about six months. Nobody knew at the time that spurgeon would end up spending the rest of his life a leading that church in that congregation there so much so that they had to build a bigger building as the church expanded and it became. What trion I kind of think about is the first real like Mega Church the Metropolitan Tabernacle? They designed it to seat at least five thousand people but even that wasn't nearly enough to eat when he would preach on Sunday morning. There would be huge gatherings outside of the building. China China. Just hear a little bit of what's Virgin was preaching that morning and this is by the time he was twenty seven. He this was going on. It's hard to imagine that would be a big deal today with all of our technology. And all of our microphones of somebody could build that church. That quickly would be a big deal today. In their time period without wasn't yet even a thing I it would have been nominal. Yeah in the fact that he doesn't appear to be very prideful like I know that's something we see time and time again with with a lot of speakers in America. Something a lot of mold kind of lose their way the more money the more fame that comes their way if spurgeon ever did Russell with pride it certainly does not something that we really seen as life very. Evidently this episode is brought to you by Kriegel publications and the new book. Forty questions about Islam by Matthew Bennett. Most of my my friends here in the West. Look at Muslims and they they think that this is a really really tough horizon for the Gospel to penetrate and yet the reality is Muslims are among the people most primed to have gospel conversations. Even though I've written a book about a slum my my heartbeat behind it is not to answer all of your questions about what you're Muslim neighbor thinks but rather to help introduce you to some of the the world view level issues that are shaping and forming your isamic neighbor so that you can ask informed questions of them and get to know them. Just start asking questions than before you know it. You're in a friendship and you can continue asking questions. And even in in time be able to provide the answers that you would give to those same questions look for forty questions about Islam and where you find Christian books or at critical dot com. He was not always beloved though at the New York Times and the London Times. Used to publish sermons which I thought was funny to think about that. We had these newspapers that are you know. They're both still around today but imagine back in the day. They were preaching sermons and people were buying them. They wanted to read them. That's something so four and to us. Now the idea that you pick up a newspaper and SEE SERMON BY FAMOUS PREACHER. But anyway he was so widely read that although a lot of people knew what he was preaching and they would attack them. They'd write articles against him and they say hey you know he's been. It's too much time talking about grieving parents or Harlot from the Bible or other Old Testament subjects. They said that we're really not supposed to talk about an immediate to put yourself back in their shoes again. This is Victoria Victorian England era. This was a time of high society. When when asked about its virgin said you know I am perhaps vulgar? But it's not intentional. Save that I must and I will make people listen. My firm conviction is that we have had enough polite preachers. He had one of the stories. I like about surgeon from this From this time in his life comes from Queen Victoria as she liked spurgeon Alana's fascinated with them and so he invited him to come to the palace and preach there and there's a national day of prayer. She had a huge fast for the country and spurgeon at twenty three years old comes out to preach in a crowd of twenty three thousand shows up to hear him. Twenty three thousand people know microphones. No jumbotron for you to see no transcripts for the crowd to read. It was twenty three thousand people standing in silence trying to hear a man who knows how far away preaching the word of God. Where do where do you put all the horses where that is? How do you park that? Many people with horses back in those days. It's a good question. That is a good question. History deep dive episode. Where did people horses during these big gatherings? There's gotta be there's just you know like how we've parking garages now parking stables a reporter for a newspaper there he was blown away by the crowd and he goes up to this child who was sitting in the back and I mean spurgeon is a small speck way out on the horizon preaching in this reporter asks this this child. Can you even hear? What would he say from this far away in this kid supposedly looks up at him and smiles and says of course as if he was sitting next to me and whispering? In my ear. Inner brings up an interesting point in that trial and I can talk about some time. Like is is the Holy Spirit. Like apart you know. Before megaphones before microphones and an amps existed like was that something that the Holy Spirit helped people projector voice communicate with more people or not. I don't know it's just something fun to anything. It was just a question but spurgeon did believe in using your voice and mastering it. We will probably wrap it up around here. I we can keep going and we will in future episode of US. Virgin recommended that everyone who wanted to be a preacher and any students. He had a school or anywhere he was he would tell them to practise. Speaking practice making speeches practice. Throwing your voice using your voice and just get used to the power of your vocal cords and it really made a lot of sense to me to musicians have to practice their gifts to the Lord. They have to practice singing. I think a lot of us today could actually really benefit from using in viewing our voices as something that can be practice to make it. Sound more appealing. He described it really. Interestingly too he said a lot of people think that louder is better but spurgeon said that a bell can be heard further than a drum and that is not a thumping on Piano. People want to hear but a gentle plane of a beautiful musical instrument that the sweeter and better you can sound the more.

No, it's like, it's almost like the Bethsheba treatment or the best Sheba theory. Yeah. Like this woman has six one way way of known because that's how I was taught. You might disagree. But like it's always good to open up that consideration of a character's over me. I gave the biggest sell to the to the disciples. Yes. Because I just I'm magin Jesus ending on that. M he and her like running like, she she has water like we didn't really talk about that. But she has a water thing that she came. She's lease it. It's just like burning trails like she's running to Samaria or did tell her friends and our community like what just transpired. And then this come back with food and like moves it like do. Food food words. Say who's got Jesus Boca shake? Yes, they got my L. Okay. So let's go into our application section or so what who cares? Okay. So for me what I love about the story. Is you have the woman? Well, who is engaged in a conversation with Jesus that is traditionally unheard of simply because she is a woman. Right. And the fact that she's a Samaritan. She's unclean. I like that she's asking questions she's being suspicious. She's calling him out. And then she's realizing these new truths that really startle her to the point that she's like, I go tell everybody about this. And then what I love is. She's our role model because of that. I always thought if I ask questions or doubt it or I challenged the tradition that I was a bad person. And what I know from the story that got his scared of our clapback are doubts or are raised. He wants to be in conversation with us and the woman at the well, I love that. She worked out our own faith in front of Jesus Christ. Right. We can also work out our faith. It's not a one and done. Our faith is living. And breathing. Just like the stories that were binging here. That's good because I like in front of Jesus like I can work out my own faith. But I I gotta go home. So like what I should do. Okay. Yeah. That's impressive. Mine is that I was reading stuff around the passage, and I came across something Charles Spurgeon wrote and said crisis different doors for entering into different people's souls into some he enters by understanding, and too many by factions to some way fear to another by that of hope into this woman. He came by way of her conscience, and I like that idea of. Broadly that Jesus appealing to all these different ways because he knows where all different, but specifically for this woman like appealing to remind her conscious, right? And I think if you if you don't wanna read my book the wandering years what Charles Spurgeon did in three sentences did what I was trying to do in two hundred forty pages. But it's finally Siva Gill. But I like that idea because I think again, and again up convention, not for the sake of ending for the sake of connecting with people who were usually marginalized, and I'm not here to marginalisation Swain anyone, but but that occurs in many different forms, right? It could be from forces for bigger more powerful than us as individuals or it can be from us ourselves. We can impose that marginalization on ourselves. But I think there's so much hope in the idea that Jesus is eager to go to extreme lengths to bridge that divide lex virgin said he knows the precise toward needed for each of our souls more literally Jesus became flesh..

"Glorified back up into heaven and the ultimate time period when this whole new epic moment began in the program of god which would feature the holy spirit and dwelling every single believer it starts in acts chapter two after christ had been glorified in the senate back up into heaven so christ in this temple is crying out this critical message you've been parched by sin you can't quench the thirst yourself but i can quench it for you and if you will believe on me i'll give you life and then you'll be the recipient of the spirit of god and you'll become part of my living family what a wonderful grace's message to preach in that temple you would have thought that the people in that temple would have said praise god this is fantastic we no longer have to rely upon us we no longer have to try to work out some system of religion all we have to do is cast third on him and he will quench arthur's you would've thought people with a love that message but that's not what happens which brings us to the second part the division but that message caused when christ preached verse forty some of the people therefore when they heard these words were saying this certainly is the prophet others were saying this is the christ still others were saying shirley the crisis is not going to come from galilee as he has not the scripture said that the christ comes from the descendants of david and from bethlehem the village were david was so a division occurred in the crowd because of charles spurgeon said i don't rejoice over in which everybody is just happy and peaceful all the time he said when i hear of a church where everybody just one big backslapping happy group all the time i begin to think the truth isn't really being taught there because when you truly teach the truth of god it's explosive and it divides people christ teaching was very explosive it does not in this temple of jerusalem create an atmosphere of we're all one big happy family as you're going to see very few actually responded to him christ preaching was very device he divided families and we've seen that you think.

"Calm this is loud emotional preaching and teaching with great power and great authority one writer said there was great intensity in his voice but there was also a great simplicity in his message and the trump is if you can't get excited about jesus christ and if you can't get excited about the truth of god something is drastically wrong and i'm convinced ladies and gentlemen when preaching is taking place and there's real powerful communication of the word taking place there's a thunderous ring to it it's the truth and it rings at the soul of people and that's exactly what jesus was doing i read a story about the fame preacher charles spurgeon he used to go into a place where he was going to speak and check the acoustics before he would preach he was at a time when they didn't have a microphone and speakers and we've got speakers all over the sanctuary summertime differently so you actually hear my voice back there at the same time and speaking at that doesn't happen automatically there's a speaker system spurgeon didn't have that so what he would do is he would go into any place he was asked to speak and he would go into the sanctuary and he would check out the acoustics and most of the time he would literally preach through the message broccoli out loud that he was going to preach that night and on one particular occasion there was a janitor that spurgeon didn't know was in the sanctuary he was cleaning the church and he happened to hear this thunderous roar of this mighty man of god any listening to this message you stop cleaning the church and listen to a spurgeon was saying there was such power in what he was saying that janitor trusted jesus christ as savior well listening to him preach the word there was power there there was a thorny there and that's the way it was when christ was preaching now incrase cried out his message in the temple it was a wonderful message in fact there's a threefold message that he gives here first of all anyone who has a spiritual thirst may come to christ and have that thirst quenched we read in verse thirty seventy now this is just a wonderful refreshing message for these people to here in this temple jesus christ is promising that he'll give a satisfying wife and abundant life a.
