"I've been a musician throughout that whole time, guitarist. Just in the last four years of my teaching career, there was an opening for an elementary music position. So I jumped on that and been teaching that. I absolutely love it. The Bitcoin side of that started closer to 2018. And by 2020, me and my co-host, Dan Rentmeister, we started Lincoln Land Bitcoin here in Springfield. Elementary teacher by day, Bitcoiner by night, you know, kind of thing. So having been in the Air Force, you've had that experience of like the camaraderie of people that you're around and like been to probably an Air Force wedding or two. Dan and I, I'm just going to go down this tangent for a second here because I know Dan wants to talk about this and I do too for a second. We've got a wedding we're going to tonight for a guy who is great, but we just know this is going to get wild because there's probably what, like 10 or 20 firemen going to be at this wedding, Dan. I'm glad we're not doing this tomorrow morning. Yeah. Yeah. Tomorrow morning is going to be rough. Austin made mention yesterday when we were at training about people turning it like me turning into a mongoloid. I think it's a reference to the Rick and Morty if anyone's familiar. Like that's not off the table whatsoever. It could happen. I don't plan on it ever happening, but it does subtly transition at some point. Yeah. We've talked on the show before, Tim. Josh doesn't drink a whole lot, to be honest. Like in the normal cadence of Josh's life, alcohol is not a big theme, but when it, when it rears its, I'm going to say wonderful head, it gets bizarre. I have said on blue collar Bitcoin before he gets to a point where I can see it in his eyes, where his soul leaves his body. And the more time is spent with Josh, the more I enjoy pinpointing and announcing to everyone else that that, that juncture has been reached. The soul is no longer with us. Be careful. But yeah, tonight I think in the spectrum of fire department weddings, I think tonight Josh could be, and you don't know until you're there until we don't know anything about the DJ. We don't know anything about the vibe, but I think this has the potential to be on the rowdier end of the spectrum. And I am mentally and physically preparing. I got a great night's rest last night. I got a workout in, took some vitamins, gonna flex the intellectual muscle here, but it has the potential to be weird, exhausting, and amazing. They're going to be some numb frontal cortex is here in six hours or so. Let me ask you firefighters, do they get, um, like aggressive when they get drunk? Is that a, is that an overstatement or, uh, there are some outliers that I could pick out that would, but I don't think any of them are going to be there. I think they're going to be some pretty, pretty gentle drunks. You know, there's a lot of loving. There's a lot of loving at our department and to be, to be clear, like we, I think we work at a very special place. I know probably everybody feels that way about their department, but it is a really wonderful group of people a group that Josh and I love spending time with. And yeah, I'm just, I enjoy spending time with everyone. I think there's an element to it in our line of work where some of those social frictions and anxieties disappear because we know each other so well. When you live together, work together in these environments, brush your teeth next to each other, shit in the same bathroom as each other. Every third day, you can't pretend to be someone you're not like everybody that I work with at the department, not just Josh, like everyone that I've worked close with, they can pinpoint what I'm good at, what I'm bad at. There's no hiding it. And so when you get in these, when you go on trips with these guys or you're in social environments with these guys, you're not trying to prove anything to anyone because everybody already knows the full deal. You kind of agree with that, Josh? Oh yeah. 100% we already, there's been ideas floating around that we should, uh, the gentleman who's getting married, his name's Adam. And we're thinking about maybe floating the idea or like kind of introducing the idea to him that there's this underground swingers club at our department that he's not aware of, but now that he's getting married, we're going to kind of, we've got this like group of like six or seven people that are in on this joke and we're going to try to insinuate to him gently and then more forcefully throughout the night, like, Hey, are you getting into this club or what? Like, it's kind of, you got to decide tonight, like the tonight's the night. I think he's gonna, the goal here is to introduce it. He'll think it's a joke, but then have enough people repeat it and do a good enough acting, which Josh, I'll try to do my best tonight to make him be like, Holy shit, are these guys serious? Um, yeah, it's going to be a special night. Thanks for listening to us to talk about what's coming on here. Do you orange pill early middle often of the night? Do you have like a time where it's like, we're drunk enough, not too drunk to really, uh, bring a big, I think everybody there is already apprised of our, that situation. We won't even have to broach that there. Like people will just be like, shut the fuck up. We've heard enough of this. We've listened to enough of your podcast. Well, and truthfully, most of the people going to this wedding own Bitcoin. A lot of them are in, you know, so it's, it's some of the people that are in and know, and have heard us talk for years now, they're the ones that are sick of it. They're like, I, I fucking get it, guys. I get it. I understand the value proposition. And in terms of when it comes out, I typically go to an event like this thinking I'm unplugging. I'm not going to talk about Bitcoin, but then when the inhibitions get lost, that's when I can't help myself. And I want to talk about Bitcoin. So we'll see. We'll see, man. There's, there's so much. Yeah. I mean, you've covered such a wide breadth of history with this book. It was really hard after reading it for us to distill down, like what particular part should we talk about? And yeah, I don't know where to start here. Dan, you want to, what do you, what do you think? I want to start just with the general concept of the book. The title as we've established is history echoes Bitcoin. You, you have a quote in the book. I think it's, it's towards the end of the book. The properties of Bitcoin have always been with us. I'm going to ask you just the broad question. Why do you feel history echoes Bitcoin? What do you mean by that phrase? There's just the title of the book. So if you look at the arc of history, and like I said, you zoom out enough, you see repeated episodes of humanity searching for a solution to various problems. So I have, I think eight chapters, and they are the properties that are expressed in Bitcoin. So like permissionlessness, we've always been trying to find a way to be able to act without needing permission. We've always been trying to implement some kind of governance structure that respects all participants.
"eight chapters" Discussed on Evangelism on SermonAudio
"And then the eighth chapter and the ninth chapter deal with the matter of the priesthood. Now what is it that we need for atonement? We need a priest and we need a sacrifice. So in the first seven chapters you've got the sacrifice. In the day of priesthood, now we can have atonement. But the chapter on atonement, the day of atonement isn't until Leviticus chapter 16. At the end of chapter 10, they could have had atonement because they had a sacrifice and a priesthood. What happens in chapter 11? He shows them the clean and the unclean. Chapter 13, the leprosy issue, 14, 15. So he deals with them and he shows them that which is clean and unclean between chapter 11 and chapter 15. What is he showing them? He's showing them they had to have a consciousness of sin in order to come to the day of atonement. And so the Old Testament teaches the same principle. You can't have the atonement. You can have the sacrifice and you can have the priesthood. We have the sacrifice in Christ. We have the priesthood in Christ. But to be saved, we need to recognize we're sinners. John chapter 5, the man said he was incapable and no man could help him. Jesus was having him see his need. John chapter 8, the woman taken in adultery. And they brought her to Jesus and said, we caught her in the very act of adultery. Now Moses in the law said, such should be stoned. What do you say? They thought they had him trapped. If he were to say, well let her go free, then he was not a law keeper. And if he were to say stoner, then he would not be the gracious son of God that he claimed to be. So they thought they had him. And he didn't answer them. What did he do? He stooped down and rode on the ground with his finger. These are Jews. What would that remind them of? Moses writing the law with his finger. Now I realize I'm giving you some ideas here. I can't say it's absolutely written in John 8, but I believe when he was writing with his finger, it was a picture of God writing the law for Moses. And by the way, it was in the temple, so that wasn't just dirt outside. There was a stone floor he was writing in the stone and rode with his finger. And then he arose and he said to the Pharisees, he that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone. And they beginning at the eldest unto the youngest went out one by one, the oldest. What did they do? I believe they looked over at that which he had written on the stone and they saw it. And being convicted, they went out one by one. And then he stooped down and rode again. I think it's a beautiful picture of Moses writing the law and then breaking the stone, the stones of law, the tablets of law, and having God write them again. And this is God writing and he wrote them again. I believe that the Lord Jesus was literally writing the Ten Commandments. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. Thou shalt remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Thou shalt honor thy Father and Mother. Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not commit adultery. Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness. Thou shalt not covet. And I believe he was writing that and they looking down left and this woman had faced her sin and saw it and life is to be changed. So the argument from silence doesn't really hold up. Then they use the idea of Acts 16, 30 and 31. Paul and Silas did not tell the jailer to repent. Well, when we read about that, we find that the jailer fell down before them trembling. Apparently he was shaken about the whole situation and I would believe he manifest an attitude of repentance. Have a letter C. Passages that show the importance and necessity of repentance. I mentioned these to you the other day. Write them down now. Matthew 4.17.

"Don't dumb it down. Make it understandable. And then you've got 12 different personalities sitting right there in front of you. Yeah. And all it takes is one. Yeah, it only takes one. Well, hey, you know, the other thing you mentioned that I'm very interested to, like I said, aspiring. I'm finally to that point where I've got it, you know, ready to go. It's going to go out to the door to my, you know, development editor. But, you know, hey, dude, I am I am just about to finish and turn it over to him. It'll be there in two weeks. We have a friend of ours who's writing a book. She's a former DEA agent and I've been kidding her. I'm ahead of her now. We keep saying tick tock, tick tock. Got to get it in. But what is your process when you start when you start to sit down? You know, some people, they call it panzers. They just they start writing and they do that. Some people plot it out. And some I've seen some people it looks like the battle plans for Normandy. You know, it's like I've got to have every contingency laid out. Where do you fall in that spectrum? Yeah, my son is what you just described. He has big whiteboards and color coded cards and every character, every scene, everything's plotted out. I don't do that. I do maybe a six or eight chapter outline with just a little paragraph for each chapter. I know where the book is going to end. I know how it's going to end. I don't necessarily know who the villain is, who did it, who done it. I just start writing. And as I write, it's a I'm linear. I start with chapter one, two, three, four, five. And until I'm done, my daughter's a writer. And if she's in a good mood, she writes the love scene. If she's in a bad mood, she writes the death scene. That's wrong. I can't do that. Oh, I love it. But it's feedback and I keep a post-mortem outline. As I finish each chapter, I add it to the outline so that when I finish the book, I've got a complete outline of what happened, when, if I need to go back and change something or check something or whatever. So how far along in the book are you before you figure out who the bad guy is? Or girl. Or girl. I shouldn't say that. Sometimes I'm well into it. Sometimes I'm three quarters of the way through. And that's what you want to do. I think as a thriller writer, you want to point the clues at various people so that your reader is guessing and trying to figure it out before you tell them. And if you don't know yet, it's probably a pretty good chance that you're going to surprise the reader at the end. And that's my job. When I read a thriller and I figure it out before the end, I'm disappointed in the writer. Yeah, and it's, you know, and that's as you read these type of books, that's especially when you're getting like into the last twenty five percent. You're already thinking, okay, who's the bad guy? Who's the bad guy here? You know, and you threw a little hitch in that one. So I'll just leave it at that. There's a nice little surprise. That's my job. I have those plot twists and sometimes they surprise me. And I think, oh, if that surprised me, that'll surprise the reader. Well, hell, if you haven't got it figured out by seventy five percent, you know, it's like, hell, I don't know who did it. Then you're writing and you go, that son of a bitch. I knew he was good for it.

"Is a powerful teaching with this sunday morning. Is this gospel. Mark is preaching and he's preaching to a very small group but today discussable is being preached to two and a half billion people in the world and there are millions in the united states that are hearing this and there will be thousands and thousands in omaha and scranton and any other place. This message is gonna reach. So it's it's a powerful text. And so often i believe is frequently misunderstood and i was like two is the eighth chapter of mark's gospel beginning with the twenty seven dollars. Jesus is disciples left for the villages around says rea- flip by and on the way he put this question to his disciples. Who do people say that i am. And they told him. John the baptist's others elisha others again. What are the prophets. And then he but who do you say that i am so this is very personal and anyone who's going to be hearing is today. I think what. Jesus is saying to me. And what i'd like to share with. You is the most important question of this gospel. But who do you say that. I am not the apostles but who to you. There are two and a half billion christians in the world. Why is this so intimately important for you and me. Because the relationship of jesus is not the same as it was for them and him. The relationship between you. And jesus is that. He is the head of the body that we belong to. We belong to his body the church i am the vine he says you are the branches so today when he says to you and me who do you say that i am and when he says that i am the cornerstone you are the building. You are united with me. I am one with you. The question today for the disciple of jesus is who do you say you are who am i. What is the answer that jesus wants from each of us but you he asked. Who do you say that i am the importance of the message. Today is that. Jesus is walking along with his disciples. He has not yet entered into union with them nor will he until his suffering death and resurrection and then even that remember he ascends back into heaven since the holy spirit upon these same apostles and then becomes one with them which is exactly who you are is so every member of the christian church is now you are the body. I am your head. You are one with me. I am the vine you are the branch. I am the cornerstone. You were the building. Who do you say that i am now. Peter spoke up and said to him. You are the christ now. The word christ means messiah in hebrew. It's a greek word and for them and as jews of their time it could easily be misinterpreted it because the messiah is the anointed one. But this messiah at this particular time in jewish history he is going to be in the lineage of david and david was the king and solomon was the king but the king that is coming. Who is the messiah. The christ is going to establish any ternal kingdom. This kingdom is going to be forever. That's what it was predicted to be. And when the messiah comes. Which is what all jews were waiting for. We've finally are going to have a ruler. Will rule not only of the house of israel but it will be an eternal kingdom and it will be the lineage of david had fallen into there was no longer a stunned of david on the throne and now the hated romans were in charge of israel so it had all these political overtones. You are the messiah. You are the christ you or the king of israel and he began to strictly order them not to tell anyone about him because if you are the messiah then what kind of kingdom are you going to establish. He began to teach them that the son of man. I was destined to suffer. Grievously be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes and to be put to death while who am i he hear what jesus is saying. Not only about himself but about us who are joined to him. What can you expect when you follow me. Let me read that again. And he began to teach them that the son of man is destined to suffer grievously to be rejected by the elders. And the chief reese and the scribes and to be put to death and after three days to rise again his suffering and dying and rising yes predicted. I predict my suffer my suffering my passion my death and my resurrection resurrection..
"eight chapters" Discussed on Adams on Agriculture
"Coming right up information america's farmers and ranchers need to know on a. Oh now back to mike edits. We continue to look at the economy last time. We talked with american farm. Bureau federation economists. Veronica ni- we were talking about rising input costs certainly a challenge that Even during this time of higher commodity prices Higher input costs Are a factor for farmers to deal with Even with a strong market that we've seen for some time. Now there are still economic challenges out there for some farmers who went to look at the the farm bankruptcy numbers veronica. Thank you for joining us. what levels are we at right now with of farm bankruptcies compared to a year ago or two years ago and yeah so you know actually For the first time since two thousand fifteen. The overall national data on farm chapter twelve firm bankruptcies is that we've actually seen a decline. Which of course is is welcomed news but measuring from july one twenty twenty through june. Thirty two thousand twenty one That that's the basis of for counting or look we saw four hundred thirty eight chapter twelve bankruptcies in the us which was down twenty four percent from where we were in the same period that ended june thirty twenty twenty so certainly the right direction Though you know. I'd be remiss to if i didn't say you know every week farm. Bankruptcy that that we see is certainly called three pause and is an unfortunate so Not too not not to jump out with the. Hey good news but still acknowledging but you know any any farm losses it is. Yeah the good news. It's trending in the right direction but as you said There are still those individual issues and challenges that are faced out there and we hate to see anyone go through that So when we look at the overall economy Another time of strong prices. They're up and down a little bit but overall certainly higher levels and we seem for some time that gives opportunities but As we've talked about before the higher input costs there are challenges yet. Still manage that right. So Just because the commodity prices are higher. That doesn't mean everything is Everybody's going to do a great and All all problems go away. It just doesn't quite work that way does it now. Unfortunately doesn't and i think when we look at regional data it start and becoming more apparent. What the challenges might be on obviously mentioned the input prices which is certainly weighing heavy on on folks When you look at the The west and the southwest tour going through substantial amount of you know sort of unprecedented drought right now We saw significant uptick in those regions For the number of bankruptcies and unfortunately Would one would expect that that that we'll probably see some more on when we look back next year on this time. So you know in in the southwest which is a region that doesn't tend to have a lot of of bankruptcies Forty one percent increase this year. Compared to two laughed in the west which the west is is Cal basically california He's on a thirteen percent increase..

"It chronic disease therein calling. I think you know the The long kobe tissue has also exposed some of that inconsistency. Because this goes back to. We've talked about the we've seen improvement and then we convert maintenance but i've always looked at those patients that were sometimes we call them. One in done are about only Very often that evaluation only is not a. You're doing so great. You don't need therapy. It's clearly identifying a multitude of issues. Overwhelmingly there's education from the therapist. Ah program from the therapist exercises from therapist and then no rehab potential good luck. It's like wait a minute. You saw a need to do something. So why would you not follow up. Well i can't because he wasn't going to get better. Let's just stop. If i'm gonna give you something that would be like the doctor giving you medication and say. I don't even want to hear what happens. This should work based on my experience. You know halfon with at and it's not gonna come back and check. Did this work. Maybe i need to adjust something. Maybe that program. I thought worked for you. Especially with the infancy of understanding long. Kobe is an example. I gave you a program. And how many stories have we heard of the program we would have traditionally given was the wrong thing it. It wiped them out. It caused the wrong result so we can't just hand out information to be like well let me know of anything goes bad but what is our responsibility to follow through and make adjustments as we see the course of karen fold as we see their response to therapy. Yeah well said. And i think i think what you're doing there cindy again at the top of the show chain that word maintenance to stabilization and just short changing changing what we're talking about right changing the noun in a sentence and all you're like yeah when you put drugs in that in that spot therapy makes complete sense okay. We'll also make sense when replace it again with therapy Your your president of the home. Health section You guys have literally written a book. And we'll put the book In the comments that guided delivery of homebase maintenance therapy we need to change. The title at book will get on that. Let's call the producer of the publishers. But does this always have to be home based. That's my next question now. The reason our first edition was the post acute guide. Two maintenance therapy. We talked about further regulations. That any medicare provider party or party can do it. And so you know. We had in there about earth. Since sniffs those medicare benefit policy manual chapter chapter eight chapter one and so what what we realized is that we really wanted to hone in on people residing in their their their natural environment and so in capture a little bit more of the part b. Right because this can happen in outpatient clinics. This can happen in party in the home and the unique thing about the about home. Health is is that even though it's party it's delivered what i like to call the patients natural environment right. If you think about it you can practice all you want in an inpatient facility and you can line up all the grab bars and the width of the doors and set up all the equipment you want. But we don't know anything of of of all that work is going is going to translate when you get into the patient's house in so this was a great way for us to say people want to be home. Kovic also proven that. It's the most cost effective place to provide care home community based party part b. and we have a great opportunity a wide open space to step into In in the in the shadow of covert. Unfortunately where we can say. What is your number one job. Is it as therapists. My number one job is to keep people in their their home environment and have them functioning. Optimally i i keep people out of higher cost centers care through function right. And so that was really the impetus for making it really home and community based sort of care. It's because this is where people spend the majority of their time and they were they will also during their time. Well the reason we put the part b. in there is not only. Is it part being the home. Which is clearly an option of care but also part b. in a clinic setting because what we're finding is that will get you know in our typical universe. The home health part. A you get people to understand maintenance yep i get it at stabilization but we also have to deal with the reality of you have to be homebound to get it under medicare a so. There's patients that continue to need this level of care this so what options are available to them. We want to address that in the book. What's what what are people going to be about. A transformed into is this and this is going to change perspective as we're talking about feels like that's the theme. That's suddenly popped up which you're changing perspective. The these things. These things are not new. These these concepts we're talking about it literally can sometimes be as simple as changing the word but when someone is when someone gets this book and again we have the link. The comments What are they gonna be. Empowered to now armed with well we wanted to make sure and everything coordinating craft. Does we wanna make sure. It's grounded in the ranks There's been a lot of misdemeanor. Understandings about medicare rules and it's likes whatever setting you're in you need to go look at what the rules really are for yourself and make sure you understand them but also i love my business partner. You can't just talk about rules. You gotta talk about operationalizing it so we used case study throughout the book to say okay. We talked about this concept. What could that look like. With respect to a patient. Continuous patients scenario throughout the chapters when we revised it now has a workbook so their specific additional activities. Because i back to what we said about staying in the improvement lane One of the tools. I contributed to the book was this little self check about. Are you addicted to improvements. Have you define yourself so much that you can't see beyond that that to say okay you can do. This now is hard for some therapists. I mean really hard. I've told the when we done live presentations and i can see the audience. I we to come up with like the same kind of stages of grief equivalent for understanding maintenance. Because you'll see people look angry like somebody made this up or confused as to. I've never heard of this. Then you see the light bulb going. Oh i understand that. Oh gosh that lady. I discharged last week. Probably should have been kept on service. And i'm a terrible therapist and i should have done all this other stuff for. I mean it's just interesting. Those that interaction of the understanding and the application and so we will Therapist all the time. You gotta cut yourself a little bit of slack and you've got to cut your team some slack to work this through because it's not as simple as oh it's in the regulations go do that. Oh it stabilization. I understand that for a lot of us. It's it's it's transitioning how we viewed our entire professional cells in one way and that's not necessarily just flip a switch and i'm okay with it now and i'm going to doing it. And even if they theoretically okay. I can get on board with that. I can get on board with that. It's the actual when you put pen to paper or finger keyboard hang. How do you make sure that you speak to the reds and you know offense. I don't think anybody got into therapy to say. I wanna i wanna write a novel right. I wanna right. They wanted to treat patients in but unfortunately documentation is the way that we verify that we speak to the regulations right that our services are skilled reasonable and necessary according to the medicare requirements. And so you know and then you have other pair carman's but they basically similarly fall in line with that you can't be something that announce skill person could do because we're not gonna pay for that okay so.
"eight chapters" Discussed on National Prayer Chapel, Pilgrim's Progress
"I watch and i read the scriptures and the scriptures tells me that god's judgments will come upon the wicked and those judgments are now coming. I suspect that by fall. September october november there will be very serious food shortages in america. And some of you may even starve to death. I recognize that in the great depression. The s history tells us that some seven million americans died of hunger. We will see that again. I'm trying to say to you today. If you lack the ability to repent you must regain that ability and it's going to take some very serious cutting off of foolishness even of good things. It's going to require that. You take that time with jesus and get real with him on frankly exhausted trying to build his kingdom and have come to a place where i know now that i cannot build his kingdom. I can only obey him. Speak the words. He gives me to speak love the people he calls me to love minister to those he calls me to minister to some of. You are inde- spurt. Terrible conditions. don't struggle to go back to normal struggle. Now to get to jesus you can't recapture what has been lost. It's now time to get to jesus. It's now time to turn your heart toward heaven for. He is coming in the clouds of glory. The little horn is spoken of again in the eighth chapter. Antichrist epiphanies was the precursor of the anti christ bar day he was a man beyond wicked. He defiled the temple in jerusalem the maccabean zeros and threw him out finally daniel. After he's watched these visions rights than i. Daniel was exhausted and sick for days. This is daniel the eight chapters twenty seven. And then i got up again and carried out the king's business but i was astonished at the bishen. That was none to explain it. These visions were exhausting for daniel. He was an old man and he was desperately sick and as he recovered he got up and went back to his administrative tasks but first and foremost in his mind and his heart was the people of god. If you read daniel chapter nine he sees that the time. According to jeremiah is now ton for the people of god to return to be gathered together and he begins to give his attention to the lord god to seek him by prayer and supplication with fasting sackcloth and ashes he prayed to the lord his god and confessed and said alas oh lord the great and awesome god who keeps his covenant and loving kindness for those who love him and keep his commandments we have sinned and committed iniquity and acted wickedly and rebelled even turning aside from your commandments and ordinances moreover. We've not listened to your servants. The prophets who spoken your name to our kings are prince's our fathers and all the people of the land righteousness to you. Oh lord but to us open. Shame please what belongs to. The american church is open. Shame and it's time for us to give our attention to the lord to seek him by prayer supplication fasting sackcloth. the nashes. it's time to pray. But you do not have the ability to repent when you're so filled with all the lusts of vanity fair. You're going to have to throw vanity fair out of your heart. You're going to have to cut off the sounds of the television and the internet and your cell phone. You're going to have to cut off the radio and the worldly music that's called christian you're going to have to isolate with jesus or you will never repent and you will continue in the shallow dumb mode of not being able to speak honestly with the lord god of heaven about your condition. You can make up things. All on god's delight i'm saved. I'm on my way to heaven. Many will say to him in that day. Lord lord did we not perform wonders miracles. Did we do things in your name. And he says depart from me. You workers of lawlessness. You people who never came into line with the commands and the decisions and the decrease in the ordinances of almighty god. You went on your own. You went your own way. You lusted after the things you wanted and you had a piety but it was a false potty you cannot repent and be filled with vanity fair so i i asked you very honestly are you filled with vanity fair today or have you begun the process of carving out of your heart and out of your life. Those foolish vanity filled things that have no eternal value..

Whoa i'm asking me questions about caregiving. And i've had you know opportunities to fake into other things.

We right now trying to have rain right right right right out. You know people calling me getting opportunities to do coaching them coach. And so it really has been a blessing for me that is wonderful and a blessing to of the people. Obviously so that. That's a great thing 'cause into that's the whole thing about it.

I mean i mean you have enough knowledge. I mean that's that's the thing guys. I know care and she has a vast amount of knowledge in this area. And here's the thing you've written a book on it you can do a podcast solely on your books so for those of you out there who wondered about content. You can do a whole podcast on a book. If you have the book you google podcasts.

That's great. that's that's a lot of jackets. You could actually talk for two years on that book. And when i say that if you did a weekly podcast you can talk for a month on one chapter. You can talk if you could podcast just like this. Podcast is only about a half hour law. You could talk that long every week on that one one doctor because it can take you in different directions just in that one tactic you can go to the next to the next year and guess what else do it will help you sell books.

Maybe they want more of it. I'm just saying you're doing i. I like what you're doing because you're helping people you know you're not just a talking head or helping people and people really really need which as far as caregiving because it something you were growing up. No one prepares you for that right. You know absolutely an-and really has the conversations that may usually people don't start having the conversation to something happens your emergency with one or the other hair an and and that's really unfortunate But you know hopefully. We're getting wiser in that at least odd generations going soon having a conversation earlier. It's the cool thing is that i want to bring up with you like you said you've heard from people from as far as australia and you get to sit at home is it is very cool. No that is absolutely because the whole social media has just opened up a whole world. We're you know. I get to talk to people all over the world and i get to coach people all over the world. It is truly amazing of something. I never thought i would be able. They do especially all the world. But it's certainly just as a whole another dimension to and and i'm glad i'm glad you mentioned be all over the world because i tell people all the time when it comes to podcasting is that a lot of people still think small. We think i have a message. I have to get it out to my community and it's bigger than your community in your state is bigger than your country. Right because like for instance in this is a real life example. You don't know who that person is in australia. That needs to hear what you have to say. And so that's the coolest thing about it. You actually wear with the help from what i love that. I can't wait to have people call me from australia. Who i love that. It's very sorry about next connected. Lengthen a rarely and see that's another they get away for the next two years from now. This is so important to help. Got the right rightness. Now you get Connects to her and now they can see that she's an offer they can see this. You have the book. They can see she sees. He's a coach and consulted with people.

I guess she can generate more fouls because those people are gonna tell someone else about aaron lever so it's something that i really hope you guys are appreciating what he's giving you here because and i don't even know if you're giving it specifically for that reason but i'm picking it up a mom learning this because this is this is something that people need to need to pay attention to because your podcast could be a conduit for all types of different opportunities for you if you work at properly and like cares. It is a labor of love. She's having fun and she's getting business and anything that i just think it's a wonderful thing but i hope that everyone is getting that.

"Friday april thirteenth. Two thousand and twenty nine. I've read his own words as he described it. I've listened to him as he was live on television talking about this and he is absolutely convinced. The profuse being guided by demonic presence will hit the earth somewhere off the california coast down toward the baha on april thirteenth. Two thousand and twenty nine. Now he's also very clear that this is what is called warm would many bible scholars place wormwood midst in the middle of the seven years of tribulation spoken of by the prophet daniel. Now i am not saying that this is going to happen. I'm not setting a date. But i do respect thomas horn and in my own understanding and as i have prayed about this issue i am very clear that jesus is coming and he's coming very soon so i'd like to walk with you through this eight. Th chapter of revelation of the seventh seal and the first trumpet these are describing very real events that face us on the earth. Some of you would like to imagine that everything is going to continue as it has always been. I wanna tell you that that simply is not true. We are in the final countdown of earth history. All of the biblical understanding tells us that jesus is soon to come. I'm not saying that. Jesus is going to come on april thirteen. Two thousand and twenty nine. Let's be very clear. But i am saying that. A preface is going to pass the earth on that date. According nasa and nasa says it will not strike the earth. The lord has told tom horn that it will strike the earth. So let's look at revelation the eighth chapter. I'm going to be reading to you from the lavender bible which is a a very fine new testament translation by a very fine greek scholar who has now passed and gone on to heaven. The first trumpet sounded and there came hail and fire having been mingled with blood and it was thrown to the earth and the third of the earth was burned up and the third of the trees were burned up and all the green grass was burned up. Will this first trumpet is describing precisely what would happen if an asteroid were hit the earth preceding it would be smaller stones that would penetrate and would set a portion of the earth on fire. This is an accurate description of astrophysicists as they speak about. What would actually happen. If a large asteroid the size of four football fields as a pufus is actually hit the earth. Verse eight the second trumpet. And the second angel trumpeted an amass like a great mountain burning was thrown into the sea and third of the see became blood. A third of the creatures in the c- having died and a third of the ships were destroyed so scripture is telling us that there will be a burning mountain will be hitting the sea and it will be very damaging a third of the creatures in the c- died and a third of the ships were destroyed burst ten and the third angel trumpeted and a great star fell out of heaven now. That words star is used in several different ways in scripture. The greek word for star is the same word that we in english translate asteroid but there are also instances in scripture were. The words star or asteroid is used to describe a living angel as the star of bethlehem we believe was an actual angel. Guiding the wise men to the birthplace of jesus a great star fell out of heaven burning like a torch and it fell on the third of the rivers and on the springs of water and the name of the star or asteroid is called were would and a third of the waters became as wormwood and many of the people died from the waters because they were made bitter. Now if you do a little bit of biblical research you'll discover that wormwood is a plant from which a medicine is derived for worming the human intestine but too much of it is deadly it is nauseating and it will kill a person so scripture applies the name of this great asteroid. That's going to strike the sea and the earth. The words it breaks up and part of it goes in the ocean and part of it hits the land in turns the water in that area.

I couldn't believe that all the kids were learning only how to do it on calculators, but I think it's better in the lower grades. But when you start to get to advanced mathematics, there's no point in not using a computer or a dog. Hillier right, but you know back in back in those days. We did it by hand. I've run when I went to work as a management analyst working for the Navy wage actually occasionally ended up running regression equations for statistics by hand using calculus, which I'd taken calculus I knew how to do it but I never expected actually be using it in real right at probably having to do that probably turned a lot of people to some different degree and course in life. You know now we only do a couple of times because we did have we were we did have a connection to a Mainframe computer that we used there were a couple of times when it couldn't handle the equation.

I the book that I published A Line in the Sand I actually thought Started in 2003, but I didn't have time to write on it really and concentrate on it because of of work. I don't know how many people you know who work in a computer feel like I was working in the hours can be excessive. Yeah. I was often working 18-hour days or staying up all night till 6 in the morning. So I could talk to our quality control people in India, right?

I don't seem to be getting as much writing done as I would have thought and others like well I have nothing better to do might as well start right away.

"In some way a decidedly commercial holiday. Clearly that began with decidedly religious roots. All of which got me to thinking about the only book of the bible that is dedicated entirely to the subject of romantic love. There is indeed such a book and since our faith ancestors considered it worthy of inclusion in the bible surely valentine's day is the day to read from it known as canticles or the song of songs or the song of solomon the title of this short little book. It's only eight chapters long linguistically speaking means the sublime song or the superlative song it's attributed to king solomon but scholars argue that its literary quality is so sophisticated that it may very well have been written by a professional secular poet. In fact the name of god does not appear anywhere in the book and it may very well have been written originally as a wedding song so perhaps not surprisingly our text. Today we're going to read in just a minute is frequently. Read at weddings. Whitney and i chose it for our wedding so it has long been near and dear to my heart. We're going to read a couple of brief passages one from the second chapter one from the eighth chapter. We'll start with the second chapter now. So listen friends. For the word of god as it is proclaimed by god's servant the author of the song of solomon this is chapter two versus ten to thirteen. My beloved speaks and says to me arise my love my fair one and come away for now. The winter is passed. The rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth. The time of singing has come and the voice of the turtle dove is heard in our land. The fig tree puts forth it's figs and the vines are in blossom they give fourth fragrance. Arise my love my fair one and come away. Says the word of god for the people of god. Thanks be to god over the years. I've presided at a fair number of weddings. As you might imagine. i've.

"Times president and they were also talking about like you know the left behind series by the way i met kirk cameron but that's a different story But one of the things that she said in here is that Quote and then left behind happened. And i was like i don't think this is a subculture. This may be the dominant american culture. And the rest of us are subcultures mainstream. And and i thought it was kinda interesting that you know this whole Left behind in times presidents so that we have to make sure that our particular rhetoric is being displayed on the american prime time and And also even like you know Present themselves like you know as the persecuted or the the downtrodden group. You know i. I it really. It really did something so my gray matter. When i was even really thinking like you know how can a very dominant. You know ideology of christianity be considered like you know the underclass or the underpinning of america is that. It's this is ridiculous to me. It was like a ridiculous thought pattern. So yeah well you know so. After i became involved with. Aca stuff A little bit before that as well. I think neil you. And i actually talked about it on your show okay and i grew up catholic and there was none of this. None of this crazy stuff was even on my radar until i. I saw that tv preacher. But the end times you know. I want to read a little portion. Here i'm going to read a portion here. I wanna talk about this so forgive me for reading but the author of this of this article said i was taught that the thirty eighth chapter of the book of ezekiel prophesized. That one day any day now really a place in the far north interpreted naturally to be russia would team up. With many nations. This would lead to a cosmic battle in which god would come to. Israel's defense true christians would be raptured or spirited away to heaven and the wicked of the earth would be left to suffer the trials and tribulations of god's wrath during horrified seven year period when the anti christ would reign supreme and to tell a -tarian world government called the new world order would be established after right after awhile. And i'm paraphrasing now. Jesus and his raptured church would return vanquishing the anti christ ushering in thousand year golden age at the end of which st would be permanently defeated. All christians would live and glory in a newly created heaven and earth And a lot of people below believed that they were in the generation. Then would witnessed jesus's return Getting a little bit of getting a little bit of breath here The microphone is anyone else here in the early me But it's cynthia moved the other way This is a different kind of christianity. That i grew up with and i think what you hit on cynthia's exactly right this. I always thought of this as a french. But it's not french One one thing that i found here at later in the article hitting on what you're talking about. According to the pew research center forty one percent of americans think jesus will definitely twenty three percent or probably eighteen percent return to the earth by the year. Twenty fifty okay. So that's a lot of people. That's forty one percent of american people. That's not what the bible says though. Well where did this idea come from..
The Book of Genesis: Looking At The Book Of Beginnings
"Is the book of genesis. Well it's the book beginnings and so it's telling us what happened at the beginning of the story that is going to form the entire arc of the biblical story. But it's important to remember that it's not just telling us what happened in the beginning. It's telling us what god did in the beginning and so it keeps god as the central figure of all of the action and that can actually as we head into this Season that lovey. Who wanna keep top of mind because we start to talk about whereas in the first eleven chapters. We talked about four events Creation fall flood and babble now in the second half of the book which is actually much longer than the first half. We're gonna talk about four. People abraham isaac jacob and joseph. I'm so mad at you right now in this present moment because when you say stuff like that it makes me. Did you have that going into next. Because i have been preparing episode run sheets and not one single time. Have you said we'll call. You know the first eleven chapters are really four events and the next forty eight chapters or thirty eight chapters for people because that would have been a great line from somebody else. I mean come on. It's not like i sit around at night map in this stuff out. Yeah and i'm never up to snuff so it asked the story. Arc moves toward a description of people. We do want to bear in mind that the central figure is still going to be y'all way and how he's acting in the earliest recorded Stories of human history for us so But but again it's a book beginnings meaning that all of the and i think we said last season. The genesis is often referred to succeed. Pot of the bible is where all of those themes wanna see go. All the way through to revelation are being set up for us. So that's what we spent a long time last season and we'll do this season doing is looking for what are those. What are the threads in. How can we begin to see them with greater ease and regularity as we move into the rest of the scriptures us great so okay so genesis book of beginnings first eleven chapters four people. Next section. Twelve through fifty is for events but jt. Why would why would. Why would we spend all this time studying. Yeah i did just get it backwards. And i said it backwards. Genesis eleven four events genesis. Twelve fifty four people in residual. Okay so jt. Why would we spend a whole season studying genesis. I mean like why not. Just get to the good stuff in the new testament and just roll. Yeah so. I mean. One of the things that i i think. The lord's really teaching me right. Now that i'm trying to learn in my ability to be a bible reader and a bible teacher is to see how really the whole story of scripture is in those first three chapters. It's also in those first eleven chapters that we did last semester. It's then it's in the next fifty minutes in the pentateuch. The first five books of the bible that really when you look at genesis to revelation the whole story of scripture which we think forms hold disciples wanted list hopes in this podcast. Is that you just know. The story of the bible may be able to participate in be participants in the story. And you can't. You can't participate in the store. You don't know is that they would see they would see that. The story of the bible really finds its seed form all of its hyper links through the rest of scripture. Here in the book of genesis genesis. I don't want to say that there's any book that's not foundational. We love all sixty six. The bible not including third corinthians kyle but all six bucks at arrival We we need to know. We need to love. Because god has put treasures there for us. But i i i do wanna say this carefully. Genesis is one of those primary pillar books that you don't get it right. It's going to be hard to get the rest of the story right. Yeah i think what you're saying. Jt makes sense. And i think one of the interesting things is when you read. Genesis is with somebody that you're playing and maybe you've also read a gospel or you're helping them read through the gospels. At the same time you start to realize that a lot of the the themes or the The images of the pictures or the the concepts of the theology. That's in genesis. And a really pronounced way is deliberately being communicated in the gospels and that those connections sometimes are really on the

What is the book of genesis. Well it's the book beginnings and so it's telling us what happened at the beginning of the story that is going to form the entire arc of the biblical story. But it's important to remember that it's not just telling us what happened in the beginning. It's telling us what god did in the beginning and so it keeps god as the central figure of all of the action and that can actually as we head into this Season that lovey. Who wanna keep top of mind because we start to talk about whereas in the first eleven chapters. We talked about four events Creation fall flood and babble now in the second half of the book which is actually much longer than the first half. We're gonna talk about four. People abraham isaac jacob and joseph. I'm so mad at you right now in this present moment because when you say stuff like that it makes me. Did you have that going into four. Because i have been preparing episode run sheets and not one single time. Have you said we'll call. You know the first eleven chapters are really four events and the next forty eight chapters or thirty eight chapters for people because that would have been a great line from somebody else. I mean come on. It's not like i sit around at night map in this stuff out. Yeah and i'm never up to snuff so it asked the story. Arc moves toward a description of people. We do want to bear in mind that the central figure is still going to be y'all way and how he's acting in the earliest recorded Stories of human history for us so But but again it's a book beginnings meaning that all of the and i think we said last season. The genesis is often referred to succeed. Pot of the bible is where all of those themes wanna see go. All the way through to revelation are being set up for us. So that's what we spent a long time last season and we'll do this season doing is looking for what are those. What are the threads in. How can we begin to see them with greater ease and regularity as we move into the rest of the scriptures us great so okay so genesis book of beginnings first eleven chapters four people. Next section. Twelve through fifty is for events but jt. Why would why would. Why would we spend all this time studying. Yeah i did just get it backwards. And i said it backwards. Genesis eleven four events genesis. Twelve fifty four people seem residual. Okay so jt. Why would we spend a whole season studying genesis. I mean like why not. Just get to the good stuff in the new testament and just roll. Yeah so. I mean. One of the things that i i think. The lord's really teaching me right. Now that i'm trying to learn in my ability to be a bible reader and a bible teacher is to see how really the whole story of scripture is in those first three chapters. It's also in those first eleven chapters that we did last semester. It's then it's in the next fifty and then in the pentateuch. The first five books of the bible that really when you look at genesis to revelation the whole story of scripture which we think forms hold disciples wanted list hopes in this podcast. Is that you just know the story of the bible and they'd be able to participate in be participants in the story and you can't. You can't participate in the store. You don't know is that they would see they would see that. The story of the bible really finds its seed form all of its hyper links through the rest of scripture here in the book of genesis so genesis. I don't want to say that there's any book that's not foundational. We love all sixty six the bible. Not including third corinthians kyle but all six of the rival We we need to know. We need to love. Because god has put treasures there for us. But i i i do wanna say this carefully. Genesis is one of those primary pillar books that you don't get it right..

"And doing dishes and doing laundry and all all the things that we're doing and you work is so important in. You're so valuable in this army of christians that the lord has you any new talk again at abbas while about the body of christ. We are all a part of the body of christ oftentimes as christian wives. We care for our home so that our husband can go fight a different part of the battle in as husbands and wives. We hopefully are fighting the same battle in our homes and raising up christian soldiers But but god has called us to something very specific and our role is mom is to take care of our children to take care of her home and take care of our husbands but sometimes like we said at the end of the last podcast. Sometimes god has a special assignment for us and sometimes there's just for a season you know right now. Abby i par part of our our special assignment is that the lord has called us to do this podcast and we love it. We find so much joy in doing this because we know that it blesses you and encourages you and we're a is. I've said this before you know. Were not some super homeschool moms. Who know everything about homeschooling. We have it all figured out where the perfect parents and we have the perfect marriages and we have the perfect home and everything is in order. And we've got it all figured out. That's not at all shoe we are. We are moms and wives just like you who are in the midst of this battle trying to figure it out and so Right if you could see us sitting in our bedroom because this is the other thing is this is our special assignment but a special assignment never takes precedent of the bigger. So we said yes this podcast in this this home school ministry. It is our special assignment but never ever an any vet. And i hold each other accountable. Never does it come before our first ministry. Which is our family. Which is why. I'm surrounded by laundry in my bedroom As i have the kids eating out in the other room because because that's my first ministry and we're just regular moms doing this. But god has placed all of us yvette myself and everybody listening in this world. I mean i keep saying man like i know. God didn't make a mistake making me right now. Raising children in twenty twenty one. But he didn't. He made us for such a time as this on purpose. It wasn't a mistake and would it have been my choice. Absolutely not take me back to the little house on the prairie day. All day long But that wasn't god's plan god's plan was for us to be here now and so with that said you know what does that mean. And how can we live fully in the time that he's called us to live. Yeah and and what can we learn from his word. I mean we've talked about a lot of scripture and we i at the end of the last episode. I told you guys said over the past couple of months. I've read the book of esther a few times. And i have read the book bester before but when i read it a few months ago it i read it with completely. Different is and the ad it came alive to me like. That story has never come alive to me ever before and i just i wanna make. I know that there are movies that have been made about astern and books that have been written. But i'm like. I wanna i wanna make a movie about this. Because his just so good in. It's actually kind of funny. I mean i mean there are parts of it that are funny In in a weird way but the book of esther. If you have not read it mommy i just say a soon even even before you listen to the rest of this podcast pause this go grab your bible. Grab your kids ghabra husband. If he's home and read the entire book of esther. It's i think it's eight chapters. It's not very long. Even put it on your audio bible. You know we use you've version and so you it will even read it for you but haven't read the book of esther or take a few days or a week or a couple of weeks to read through it but I'm going to give you kind kind of a very very brief for those of you. Who may be are not really familiar with the book of esther. One of the things that i find most interesting about it is that did you. And i don't know if you know this but the only book in the bible that does not ever mention the name of god yet and yet amazing the evidence of god his unbelievable in there yes it everywhere it is everywhere. I mean god's presence literally just permeates throughout the entire story esther and nothing that happens in. This story is a coincidence not and god is clearly in control of this entire story. Just like god is completely in control of our story of the world that we're living in the chaos that that is surrounding us of the unsurety and and unrest that were feeling in our nation right now. God is in control and And so i'm gonna kinda just very briefly. Describe unpack this so In the beginning of of the story In we were talking about this before most people call him kings oxy's but our family usually reads the esp and in the esp him as king hasawara s. And so i'm going to read a little bit from so when you hear me king hasawara. It's also kings. He just. I don't know why he has two different names. I i'm not sure But nonetheless that's his name so here. The kind of characters in the story are king house. Us i'm king varsity. Who was his lovely wife. And the king is having this grand party and so he calls for queen bashed in. He wants her to come in. Basically flaunt her beauty and front of all his buddies and she's like no. I'm not gonna do that so basically kicks her to the curb. he's i get out. I never wanna see you again. This is the queen but she basically humiliated humiliates him in front of all of his friends and so he says i'm done with her so then he's like well. I need to have a queen and she must be beautiful and so he has all the pure beautiful girls in the kingdom. He's he's a queen. The king of the persian empire so he has all the young beautiful pure women brought to him and one of those beautiful. Young women is queen esther. I'm whose name i'm sorry. No reggie now. Queen is her name. Blogging synchro gal. She's also refer to as head data her actual name is but she's always refer to as esther in the bible and so basically they take this group of girls these young girls and they Basically go to a spa for like a whole here. Wouldn't that be nice and a pamper them and they make them even more beautiful than they already are. Walking a hassle takes a liking. He sees esther and he's like a haughty and so through some events she becomes the new queen and she has his cousin named mordecai and more chi has taken care of her queen. Esther's parents had died when she was young in some mordechai has taken her kind of as his own daughter and he raises her and so he is kind of outside of the castle gates as he's outside he discovers. Wendy that two of the king's unix wanna hurt king harassed so he tells esther about astros and tells the king and the unix are hanged and she basically saved the king's life but really it was mordecai who saved the king's life by telling esther while then in in comes heyman and heyman is a really really bad guy and he becomes second in command to the king and he wants everybody to bow to him. And mordechai as a jew esther is a jew and they don't mordechai doesn't want about to him and he refuses to bow to heyman because you know he bounced to god and so heyman gets really mad about this and.
"eight chapters" Discussed on KTOK
"Books that's born toe win dot net. It may come as a surprise to realize that for a very long time after the ascension of Jesus, and after the beginnings of the New Testament church that there wasn't a church anywhere except Jerusalem. They even disciples that have been converting that they didn't go back home. They stayed there, and people were selling properties and having all things common because nobody wanted to leave. One. Speculation about why they didn't want to leave is because they expected Christ to return any time now, and it's hardly what's point going on crisis coming back. The kingdom is going to be established. I want to be here where it's gonna be. Well, they sat there for a long time. I used to kind of be critical of the early church. I used to think. Well, what were they doing that for? Jesus said. Go and tell all the nations, you know, make converts baptized people, and they were just sitting around Jerusalem. I thought about it and I realized no, there was a need for these people to be there. It was a need for them to stay there for this period of time, because in this period of time, they were nailing down the story. They were learning the story of Jesus. Keep hearing in my mind these this old old him tell me the old old story another him. I love to tell the story. It's a story and the people in that 1st 1st few years of the church. We're telling the story. Over and over and over again, and finally they headed down. There came a point in time. God allowed persecution to come on the church and scattered them like a covey of quail all over the Middle East. And in the eighth chapter backs. It tells us that wherever they went, they went preaching the gospel. There was one singular event in this. I think that's illustrative of what we're talking about. Today. It's in the eighth chapter of accidents in verse 26. The Angel of Lord spoke to Philip. But he said Philip get up, go down toward the south to the way that goes down from Jerusalem toward Gaza in the desert. So Philip doesn't win. Didn't tell him what to do. He just said go. Philip was gonna have to do what God told him to do so he went and he ran into a man of Ethiopia. He was a unit of Great authority under Candace, the queen of the Ethiopians, and he had charge of all of her treasure. He had come to Jerusalem to worship. We don't know exactly what this man was when he was a process lighter. What have you, but he'd come up to Jerusalem to worship the true God. He was on his way back. He was sitting in his chair, his carriage reading Isaiah, the Prophet. Now we might take this for granted. But this is a very unusual event. For a foreigner to have a copy of the scroll of Isaiah was truly remarkable. But I guess he was wealthy enough to afford it and educated enough to read it, But such scrolls were really quite rare. His journey, though, was long and slow with ample time to read. Well, the spirit said to Philip, Go over there and join yourself to this carriage, and Philip ran over and he heard him reading from the Prophet Isaiah. That's very interesting himself. The gentleman was sitting there reading it aloud. Suspect that's probably more the custom of that time. He said. Do you understand what you're reading? That's a simple question and easy opening gambit and the Ethiopians response is kind of interesting, he says. Well, how can I accept somebody should guide me? He's basically saying I'm reading it. But I need help. He desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him, not figure a lot of people. Frankly, when I sit down and read the Bible feel much the same way, boy. Yeah, I'm reading this thing, but I sure could use some help and understanding it. Well, the place of the scripture where he read was this quote He was led as a sheep to the slaughter. And like a lamb is done before her Shearer. He opened not his mouth. It is humiliation. His judgment was taken away and who shall declare his generation for his life is taken from the Earth. And the unit answered Philip and said. Tell me Who is the prophet talking about? Is he talking about himself? Is he talking about some other man? Bible reader with a good memory will realize this citation is slightly off the mark. He is citing Isaiah 53 in Verse eight. And Here's how it reads in the King James version, and it will be very similar in most other translations. He says. He was taken from prison and from judgment and who shall declare his generation. He was cut off out of the land of the living for the transgression of my people. Was he stricken? No. That's the English translation of the Hebrew Messa Reddick. Text. But here is the same passage from an ancient Greek old translation of the Old Testament. A Greek translation that was very common in the first century called the Septal agent. Here's how it reads. In humiliation. His judgment was taken away who shall declare his generation for his life is taken away from the earth. For the iniquities of my people. He was led to death. How to read an X Well for the Abbott, Ethiopian eunuch was reading was in his humiliation. His judgment was taken away and who shall declare his generation for his life is taken from the Earth. We know the Ethiopian unit was reading from a Greek version of the Old Testament, known as the Step to agent Then Philip opened his mouth. He began it the same scripture and preached to him. Jesus. And I think you can bank on one thing. This conversation went on in Greek. Request the lingua frank, that ancient world it was spoken everywhere. It was the most common language coin A, which means common Greek It's a lovely was then. Hello like English is today the most widely spoken language in the world. Since they started with the Greek version of the Old Testament, Philip Open his mouth and probably beginning at the same Scripture preached to him. Jesus. And what would he use as his authority? If I were doing it by this the same scripture I would boot up my computer with all of its Bible programs, and I would go to that Scripture and Isaiah and I would click on the little bubble over on the left hand side. It would show me all the scriptures in the Bible. They're related to that same I would pick off all the New Testament scriptures related to it, and I would start there and I worked my way through them and cut them paste him into a document and I would work my way through this with Ethiopian. I probably I probably send him an e mail with all this stuff. Clipped, basted and ready to be explained to him in there. Well, Philip didn't have that luxury. But he also didn't have my weakness. He didn't have my memory. Philip, A man of his times had a prodigious memory. He had the story of Jesus down Pat, along with all the other old Testament scriptures that would be necessary to make it authoritative to this man..
How to Learn to Fly
"We came up with a couple of questions regarding. You know what what you might be thinking of, and we hope we hit most of them if not all of them but I I kind of question is, how do you get involved with the the airport community how'd you get involved with the aviation community? Especially when there's a lot of fences almost every airport nowadays has a big fence some with barbed wire on him around them. Kind of looks very uninviting and something that we in the government relations community are sick over but it is kind of the reality of the last twenty years of Aviation Security I guess I'll start off on this question and just say that. There's a number of ways to kind of get your feet wet. Obviously, you're going to be learning to fly either at a flight school or a flying club. So selecting a good one is important and you may need to shop around between different airports to find one that works for you. So. Don't get to married to the idea that you're gonNA be flying at your local airport because you may not. I when I learned to fly, I was living in Boston. There are a number of airports that were closer to be a at the one about an hour and a half away just because. The community, there is a little bit nicer. It was a little bit less busier poor in the flight school there in particular was very good So shop around flight schools flight schools are usually very inviting give them a call visit. May, even take a flight at at a couple. Once you've narrowed down your decision, we can talk maybe a little bit about how to select a good one flying clubs are also great ways to get involved, and then of course, the chapter if there is one at at the airport can be very, very helpful. Just know that if you start with an EA chapter, the Flight School Flying Club at the field may not be the right fit for you may wind up being involved in the chapter one airport that might be great and maybe a flight school at another and that's perfectly fine to be maybe some of. My first thoughts on that and I'd kick it over the rest of you guys for what it's a really great point Tom and I think anybody who's thinking about starting on this journey of learning is is You've got to remember you're the customer. You've got to remember that that it's vital that you have a good relationship with the overall flight school. If it is such a thing and in particular with your individual instructor, and there's a whole lot of different criteria can use to choose. It's interesting to me pointed out that you ended up learning to fly at an airport that was much farther away because it's I have always said that an especially when you're learning flying is one of the easiest things in the world not to do. It's really easy to say, I'm so busy I'm really tired at a long day at work I've you know maybe I don't feel great. Whatever it's expensive there's all these reasons that are constantly forcing you not to do it, and for some people you know an hour and a half drive could be a disincentive. So it's It's it's impressive to me that you made that choice realizing that that the quality of the school and the fit but maybe more importantly for you in that school was more important and was more of an incentive than any disincentive in in having a long drive. For me, there are a number of different factors I mean the. The cost was one of them, the the actual cost of the instruction, but also the the actually the logistics of begetting there was a little bit easier in Fitchburg than it was at the airports closer because I didn't have a car. So I wound up taking the train out there which and it was. Less than a mile from the local train station. So I just go out there with my bicycle, and that's how I'd get to the get to the airport. But. Yeah. When I say shop around flight schools I, think that is really important because. It's you know you're GONNA have a lot of factors that you're going to have to think about costs. Certainly one of them don't don't shy away from that being part of the equation. But just know that you know the The cheapest may not be the best fit for you, and also the most expensive doesn't necessarily mean that much better service they might just be using newer aircraft or. Have more of a a an operation that's geared other areas and that's not to disparage one way or the other how schools operate just have to find the one that you're comfortable with right at I really want to stress that you mentioned eight chapters and you know we don't want to be We're not here to corporate corporate chills. We'll sell advertising when we decide we WANNA do that but I didn't just alienate future advertisers note to self. Anyway. But that chapter idea because when you when you come up to an airport and you see offense and you look around and say what do I do? So calling that fly school can be sort of way through the door but you're you know you're doing that and you're you and the flight school sort of additioning each other as as business partners in a way air, you're going to go in and and make these transactions. If, you've got a good active EA chapter nearby. That's a great way to get in the door to talk to people you're going to get you know there's thirty people in a chapter meeting. It's thirty different ideas on on flight schools and how to learn and all these things. But it's also it's a great place to find a mentor. It's a great place In fact, we even have a formalized program are flying. Start Program that. Chapter will give you a presentation. So lays out all the things about learning to fly, and then they'll assign to somebody. You'll take what we call an eagle flight with them. You get a free introductory flight, and now you have a direct one on one relationships with somebody who can be a mentor as you go forward
