She continues to work his way back from ankle surgery. This off season nikki reported this last night. Had a lot of people talking there are a handful of kyri traits that potentially makes sense for the nets kyrie's representatives have made it known that cairo would simply retire from the nba. If brooklyn were to trade him wealth kyrie read. This kyrie responded to this with this right there. An image a puppet. Then you responded with this kyrie if you're saying you didn't say you retire viewer traded. Then you're beef is with. Your representation is not with me because you and i both know. That's what they've told people. Nick busy nights on the old twitter for you. Take us through all of this. I mean so the the tweets really dum summit up to for the most part the fact that matters this there were a handful of teams that contacted the nets and take the temperature on whether or not any of the big three particularly career irving were available. Everyone knew that durant not available in hardens. Almost assuredly not available but since they acquired harden and because the net you know have a surplus of scoring and a surplus of ballhandling. There's thought kyrie might be available. And those teams were not told untouchable. No reason to call us back. It's like calling golden state for step. It will never happened. They were led to believe. Well i mean you know. We'll be irresponsible not to listen but now there is nothing to listen to because and this i know for an utter certainty no matter what gifts kyrie sends to me on twitter. Kyrie's people fold anyone that would listen trade for a metro own peril. If he were ever to be traded from brooklyn he would simply retire.
A Record Number of Women Are Driving Trucks to Pay the Bills
"Record. Numbers of women are getting jobs as truckers demand for new drivers and higher pay are big factors. Here's stephen basan with the gulf states. Newsroom it's worth remembering that. Trucking is a pretty rough job for long hauls. It means sleeping in a caught behind the front seats. All those hours of sitting behind the wheel can lead the blood clots. Plus you're driving around the seventy foot long vehicle dangerous enough leads to different horns. Pamela williams is a truck driving instructor with dnc training academy in jackson mississippi. You scary situation that people are exposed to that kind of startled them but that the no truck ezekiel alien. Please get your life yet. Despite how intimidating the job could be more women. Today are taking the wheel and driving across the country. Williams says the main reason comes down to pay. Because i mean you looking at. I could go to a job. They'll work forty hours and bring home four hundred dollars. I could go out here in a week and make a thousand dollars a quick thousand dollars doing something that i like to do. That's good a lot of the retail and restaurant. Jobs typically held by women were much more likely to vanish during the pandemic. Some trucking jobs also disappeared early last year. When everyone went on lockdown but demand for drivers started skyrocketing soon after as online shopping surged. That's led to higher pay which is attracted a lot more people including women. The number of female truck drivers has jumped almost double digits in the last year. According to the us labor department's
"ezekiel" Discussed on The Bible Recap
"Yesterday we left off with ezekiel in the midst of a vision of jerusalem where he saw all the evil done by the elders and the people today that vision continues with god calling for their deaths. God summons the executioners who are almost certainly angels and has them come to the temple. The text describes them as men. But as we've already discussed angels always appear as men. There are seven of these men and six of them serve the purpose of slaughter while the other one has a different role. He's dressed in linen and he's got his tool belt on but his tools are a writing kit which in that day would have included an ink jar a pen and the case itself which served as a hard surface to ride on his job is to go around jerusalem marking the people who were grieved over the evil there because those are the ones god says he's going to spare by the way the word mark ear is the hebrew word tov. If the last letter of the jewish alphabet and in this time period of hebrew writing it would've looked like either a cross or an ex will link to a resource in the show notes. In case you want to see how the letter has changed over the years. This scene may have reminded you of the passover where those whose doorways were marked with blood which also would have been in the shape of a cross were saved while the rest encountered the death of the firstborn or maybe it reminded you of the mark of the beast from the book of revelation except the opposite. Obviously but this also parallel something else will see in revelation where the righteous will be marked as well with the seal of god on their foreheads. God tells them that when all the slaughter is complete. They should stack the bodies of the dead inside the temple. Obviously this is against the cleanliness. Laws dead bodies are unclean but it fits right in line with what god has said. He's going to do which is leave. The temple in the meantime ezekiel is distraught. Because he knows how wicked the people are and he seems to be nervous. That god will end up killing them all because of it that there won't be any people marked for saving and that israel will be wiped out forever. But god's has the people have sinned against him long enough and the days of mercy have passed and it's time for judgment starting with the leaders of jerusalem not to worry though. The man in linen does his job completely saving everyone. God commanded him to save. And i want to point out one thing here. There's nothing in the text that indicates that this linen man is at the often where god the sun shows up on earth. Like we've seen before but if you wondered about that you're not alone. This man certainly is a christ figure though. Even he's not the christ in chapter. Ten ezekiel has a vision that he compares to his earlier vision in chapter one where he sees the four faced four winged creatures attached to gyroscope like wheels this time he clarifies that they're definitely cherub them which is a type of heavenly being that is often seen guarding holy places. And that's exactly what they're doing here. They are carrying the throne. That god's presence will dwell on when he leaves the temple his chair bam chariot is waiting outside the temple as he's ready to go but i got has the linen man sinned holy fire in judgment on the city itself after this god's presence depart from the temple rests on the chair of him chariot and heads east. God has left the building. But god hasn't left his people because those worshipping idols aren't his people. They aren't among the remnant. Then god's spirit moves ezekiel to another part of the city in this vision and he prophesized a twenty five men including leaders of the city. These men have been acting like they're going to be killed in the city cooked like meet in a pot possibly because of the fires the linen man caused with his coal throwing but god says nope. I'm not going to kill you here. I'm going to kill you outside of jerusalem where all your fears and more are going to come true by the way. I don't just know what you do. I know what you think. I can read your mind and maybe you think you're cooked meat now but you're about to go out of the frying pan and into the fire ezekiel even specifically prophesized in chapters. Eleven and twelve. About how they'll leave the city and what will happen to them afterward and it all happens by the book in second kings twenty five four. We read about that on day to thirty one but this prophecy about ezekiel was written before it actually happened. I just wanted to clarify that point because again when we're trying to read the prophetic books as a whole many of them overlap timelines and it makes it challenging to keep the chronological order. So while ezekiel is delivering this prophecy. One of the men falls over dead then in the back. Half of chapter eleven god sets the record straight on something he says. In case there's any confusion the temple isn't actually there sanctuary. He is their sanctuary. He says it in verse. Sixteen and god. The sanctuary goes anywhere he wants. He's not confined to a specific spot. As we've talked about before the people of that day. Believe you change. God's as soon as you cross the border they thought y'all way was confined to israel and that once they left it they wouldn't be able to worship him anymore and he wouldn't have any power any more. Of course this is crazy inconsistent with what he's shown them through the years one of the major things he did for them early on his relationship with them was rescued him out of egypt through a series of signs and miracles. That put the egyptian gods to shame and he was with them in the wilderness outside the promised land but just like most if not all of us there default mindset is their cultural mindset not their spiritual mindset and it's hard for them to adjust so god keeps reminding them chapter eleven ends with the promise of a new heart for god's people then in chapter twelve we get more street theater just. A reminder ezekiel is exile during the first round of deportations. So he's either doing this performance in front of the other exiles or he's transported to jerusalem to do it there in front of the future exiles regardless which set of exiles. It's in front of their response is nonchalant when they're unmoved by this. God has ezekiel ads. Him emotion to it to show them the kind of fear and trembling the future. Exiles will be going through but they seem to be calloused by years of false prophecies and even as yet unfulfilled true prophecies so god lets them know that this is going to happen soon by god shot was just a little blip in ten nineteen or the glory. The lord is leaving the temple with the chair of them. This wrecked me. I choked up every time. I tried to write the section. The verse says that god and the chair of stood at the entrance of the eastgate of the house of the lord. The word stood in this passage implies that god lingered there at the threshold before leaving through the eastern gate. It's almost like that. Final lookback feeling the grief over what's been lost the pain over the way. His people have broken his heart the loss of the land. He promised them and the blessings he gave them. But all is not lost because then the presence of god heads east toward babylon god follows his people into the land of their exile pursuing them still even in exile. He's our sanctuary even in exile ease where the joyous one of the things we see in scripture from genesis to revelation is the theme of idolatry. And how it distracts our heart from engaging with god at a deeper level idolatry doesn't just prefer to statues ezekiel fourteen tells us we can take idols into our hearts.

How to Plead for Unbelievers
"Brothers. My heart's desire and prayer to god for them is that they may be saved. Rome's ten one. Paul prays that god would convert israel. He praised for her salvation. He does not pray for ineffectual. Influences but for effectual influences and that is how we should pray to. We should take the new covenant promises of god and plead with god to bring them to pass in our children and our neighbors and on all the mission fields of the world.

Thus god has pleasure in this kind of praying because it ascribes to him the right and honor to be the free and sovereign god that he is in election and salvation.

"The pacific islands forum or piff. The pacific talk. Regional body narrowly elected former cook islands. Prime minister henry puna as the new secretary. General well this much discontent amongst the micronesian nations who championed the marshall islands gerald ezekiel's will events move swiftly on and karen middleton the saturday chief political correspondent based in cambra is here to up update us. Karen if we could just start by reminding us of the mandate of the pacific islands forum. What is it. well. Joe generates a group of pacific nations eighteen pacific nations including australia and new zealand. That and it. It's a an association of of of the region. So it's It's a cooperative body. It's not a A governance body. It's got a a broad general mandate And it's about regional corporation so it's not particularly a security body or particularly a trade body but it's about a common interests around the seek and it meets once a year in terms of its leadership to deal with issues that that facing all the pacific countries. It's obviously a big difference in size. Between a number of those countries many of those countries a very very small but other countries like australia and new zealander of illogic so y- there is a disparity in terms of income but a lot of common interest to. What's at the heart of this row. Well they're the region is divided up into into three sections And be the biggest issue here is relating to micronesia which is a clutch of islands that were operating as a book. These smart asia polynesia and melanie asia and the idea generally his bane that the leadership of the secretary general position would type between the three groups. Now the two logic groups Polynesia melanesia have had to goes at h. Since it was created micronesia filtered. It was east turn it puts candidate up and under what it's called a gentleman's agreement Received enough support to get up on the basis. That was a was a fair rotation about there was a last minute. Move against it and it didn't succeed loss by one voice and so they are very upset about that. They feel that they were let down particularly by australia and new zealand. That isis spit didn't vote for the micronesian nation candidate and in the end the pull the nation candidate. As you mentioned. Henry won the vice. So micronesians very upset. They talking about leaving the forum and it's just not ideal to have a split in that forum when they're a big issues at stake particularly the climate crisis which that forum has worked very well together as a pressure bloke own achieving trying to change globally in fact and in fact Done what better than australia's done to on us. And then there are other pressing issues that are going to affect the region as a whole of vaccination program for covid nineteen And also this issue of influence of china which.

Who Belongs In God's Family?
"We're talking about the family of god. The bible about. I suppose who are god's children who belongs in in god's family who belongs in god's family quick recap god creates all humanity. Yes if here's image yet and I guess another way you could say that. It's to be his family little rabbit hole in genesis five. That answers that equates being in the image of god is to be the child of god okay. Yep it's the call of all humanity In all of our diversity but it is human nature to become tribal to not trust each other to be violent to each other in. That's genesis one through eleven. Just yep the fracturing of the fracturing of the family unity. God chooses one couple to form a family that will be a chosen family not better than any other families But chosen for a task which is to bring the blessing. Yeah back to all the nations and this is the story of israel. It's a whole story of the hebrew bible and it's easy to forget that in a way it's a subplot. Yes that's right. So the bigger plot which is all of humanity being the image of god. How is that going to happen. Will one family is going to do all sorts of things have seed that's a funny biblical term. Yeah yeah produce. Lineage produce lineage which there will be some ruler king who will deal with evil who will rule with righteousness. There's also going to be a place. Where god's presence is in all the nations can stream up and learn from this the temple. This is jerusalem. We have this hope that that's going to happen. Jesus comes and we see. Jesus saying right off the bat to his fellow israelites. This is our calling. We're supposed to be the city on. The hill was to be the light in the darkness. This is our thing we've gotta. We've gotta do this. And here's the ethic and here's what it looks like. And he goes and he's got this almost laser focus on israel. Yeah on the people of israel and making sure that israel actually can stand up to their calling which is to be the nation that will hang the blessing ultimately. Jesus does four israel. What israel couldn't do which is be the faithful israelite. Yeah and to be that ruler. And the way that he did that is. This is not what this conversation is about. But the way that he did that was with this backwards Just sacrificing himself his allowing his siblings to kill him. Yeah and that was his enthronement actually provoking them to kill the whole other thing but and through his death and resurrection was proven to truly be that that king the messiah who seed coming from israel and so now in i guess in a sense the vocation of israel has been solved because jesus has done it yeah or at least stage one of the solving the problem which was that. Israel's not being obedient yeah and is as fracture as on his fractured. That's right here comes. Jesus saying this is what it looks like and we didn't talk at all about. Yeah he starts the nucleus of a restored family of abraham yeah that relates to god according to the new covenant that ezekiel and jeremiah is a all anticipated a new way of relating to their god and so the gospels are trying to say that the family of abraham has been restored the nucleus of it in the group that jesus started
Liverpool truly collapsing, Man City set to take over?
"We start this show at the top of the premier league or at least the top of the premier league as the odds See it of course. We know liverpool and manchester united tied atop the table but the latest odds have city installed his favorite even money favourite to that liverpool right around two to one tonight at six to one and then so on down the list the odds liverpool Not any better after. Today's words from your in cloud looks like they won't be able to bring a back during the january transfer window for more. Welcome in steve nicol and shock his love. Stevie i'll start with you. Does liverpool need to bring in a center back in the upcoming january transfer window if they are to win the premier league in your opinion. I think the simple answer is yes. If they want to win the premier league then they have to sign a bona fide Who's going to commend. And plug the gaps if nothing else with clock coming over and it doesn't seem lately that would suggest that the either don't have the on antibody of the one they have is not available. I would suggest that has nothing to do with the money. Yes i know financially. Everybody's hot and i think liverpool's i think the finances are all the if they needed to. They can go out and spend some money so the absolutely on the percent in my opinion if they want to win the premier league needs to guess Of note but that doesn't seem to be happening. Which in my mind makes the bookies correct shock. Oh what do you think. Here are liverpool's title. Chances come down to what they do in the january transfer window absolutely do. I think we saw that. A couple of years ago when the broughton van dyke as much money as as it seemed that the time was right signing and once he went down without injury against everton. This was considered that liverpool would go back to how they were then good team but not title favorites. I think for me is im- if you adding to watch t- what steve just said you need to send about as good as new has been i. That's a stopgap measure. That's if for some reason you have to go two or three games where he has has to play a role. You don't want to be going. Five and six months. As ezekiel is here with him. Filling in at center back at times some of the time but not all the retirement and in this league in particular this year in particular. You don't have a whole lot of wiggle room to get that role. Stevie manchester city. Obviously playing very well later they not a little bit overvalued though at at even money considering their four points back of liverpool right now i don't think so for the simple reason that defensively they have the best record in the in the league and the premier league and they don't like given up many goals visited on the field tomorrow with that same by has been plane recently I don't find them. Losing goals and the fight is that all season we've been winning them flourish in going forward and they seem to be doing Then that's just by news. Listen it's it's a. She felt he said forever. You know you build a championship winning say from the by And as good as said see how being previously and as good as he seemed to be. Today don't kid yourself those those great seats size of two and three years ago. When we're on. The vox people evincing vincent company. Who who when when it mark morris would would keep a clean sheet and when one no yes. We remember the one in five six seven. No but they had. They had a few one goal. Victories that were done to good defendant and this city say right now. Defensively looks as solid as any in the premier league
Freezer Aisle Finds for Baby-Led Weaning
"Let's look at the frozen foods that do work for baby led weaning all right so let's get right down to it. I don't need to tell you about all the foods that don't work in the frozen food aisle. Let's focus on all the foods that babies can eat right of course frozen dinners and frozen pizzas and food with lots of salt and sugar. Babies should not have a lotta those foods in the frozen food aisle. I'm gonna go through five of my favorite foods for baby led weaning. This is not an exhaustive list. Every time i do. I start with a list of like thirty things and then i'm like that will be too long narrow down to five. Here's five of my favorite foods. I love cauliflower rice. I love regular call from. There's a million different as you may call safe for babies to eat. I don't offer call prices like a lower calorie low carb option like the reason. Why a lot of adults he cauliflower rice. I think it's a really cool way to impart a different flavor in different foods and it's a convenience food normally would not. I'm pretty frugal. I would not spend money on many produce convenience foods. Like no thank you. I can cut up watermelon by myself. I don't need you to quintupled the price and do it for me. But coffers rice is one that is a pain in the neck to make and you can find it in the frozen food aisle. How do you use it for baby led weaning. I like to call for race when i make fritters. It's already all chopped up. Its rice like a very very fine dice consistency or size. I guess more so than consistency. So you can use it in if you're baking like zucchini muffins. I'll sometimes add. Call rice in there. I'll add it to fritters or patties as a vegetable. If i'm five just like some leftover grains like oh shoot. I don't wanna just make grains and eggs in my put the cauliflower rice in it. I'm you can use it as pizza crust. I'd also like regular pizza crust especially for babies but sometimes the commercials pizza crusts. Do you have a lot of sodium in them. So there's really cool recipes using call race for that also use it and mash it up of. I'm doing like baked potatoes. Just add different flavor so again if you're cruising through you have cauliflower rice any recipe you would make adult with cauliflower rice. You can just adopt that for babies. Just making sure doesn't have added sodium or any sugar. Second up. I remember being super surprised when i found out that there are some brands of hash brown potatoes that are in the freezer aisle. That don't have sodium now. Careful 'cause like there's just as many that have tons of sodium. So my general rule of thumb as i mentioned is less than one hundred milligrams of sodium per serving of food that i'm going to serve my baby. Now you feed your baby. Don't come out of the package so it was kind of a moot point but if you're choosing packaged food look for less than one hundred milligrams and also babies don't eat the same portion size that adults do so they're going to be eating significantly in many cases less than that but back to the hash brown potatoes peeling and shredding potatoes and then like pushing all the water out of them. It's takes so much time to me. It's like never work that. I do not like hash browns enough to do all that however i do like that. There are some brands of already shredded. Hash brown potatoes. That don't have salt in them. And the thing that. I use these primarily to make like a crust to line either quiche. Or if you do like muffin. Tins i'll make like the hash brown potatoes mixed with egg and push it down as the crust for making like zucchini. Ed cups for use it for a lot of breakfast foods. There's a million other ways to use hash brown potatoes. Not personally a huge fan of them. But i love that as a convenience food there an option for you if as a safer way to feed babies now you can of course feature babies regular potatoes if you want to. I do just point out that a lotta times especially if you're doing baked potato bake russet potato. It can be very mealy very dry and any dry bread product. Any dry food for that matter can potentially choking hazard so you want to add a lot of butter or a lot of fat lot of liquid a sauces to make any potentially dry potato product. A little bit more moist for your baby to eat so number one. Call our rights number two hash brown potatoes number three. It's kind of a weird. One ezekiel bread. Now i mentioned the brand usually try not to mention branded foods because of course everyone's grocery store looks different. But ezekiel is one of the few national brands in the us. That has a low sodium option now. Sodium breads are hard to come by breads by themselves. Don't love because they tend to be more on the dry side and dry bread products like albro products as just mentioned. Can you token hazar. But if you're gonna be doing better when you're ready to read you might be looking for a low sodium option. First of all you might have never looked at the sodium in the bread aisle. And you're like oh my gosh. Why does every single piece of bread need of two hundred fifty or three hundred milligrams of sodium will is obviously is a preservative. So that's why you're breads can stay on the shelf If you've ever traveled other parts of the world. Do not use as many of or the same preservatives as the united states and your bread will go moldy in a day or two whereas here. It can stay a lot longer. Some of that has to do with higher levels of sodium but sodium is also a leavening agent meaning that it makes bread rise and it also provides moisture so all those things are important for. Bread ezekiel brand. Is one of the national brands. That has a low sodium option. You don't always find the bread in the braille though so for example like if you go to a smaller grocery store they probably have ezekiel bread. But if it's not fresh in the bakery section you can actually find it in the freezer aisle so again check out. That brand ezekiel bread for lower sodium. Bread options you'll taste it and be like this is gross because it's low sodium bread. Do keep in mind. it gets pretty dry. Though because it's not retaining that moisture with assault so astra butter again. Add extra sauce. Do what you need to do. But the low sodium. Bread ezekiel bread. You can find it in your freezer
Ohio State shocks Clemson & Bama dominates Notre Dame
"And we're taping this about an hour after a pretty stunning performance by ohio state crushing clemson in the semi final game and so we both had two games. There were both blowouts but the second one didn't go the way anybody thought rights to yeah to blow outs. One felt like the game. You expected alabama notre dame. The other one. I never in a million years that i think it would play out that way. And maybe that's my bad. Maybe i should have more faith in the buckeyes though having only seen them six times having only seen them play A couple big games. Nobody could have seen that coming. Nobody could have six touchdowns from dustin fields in snaps dominant performance. I think the thing i most underestimated was just how much fuel they were playing with from the For at the very least from last year's game that they've been holding onto this for twelve months Davos ballot played a role. Who's to say but clearly it was one of those situations where a team just comes out on fire. I hesitate to go down this road With you. But i'm gonna go there. Look you know what justin field pretty fantastic for the first three games of the season against lesser competition. And then he had that three. Pick game against indiana. Who's a good team was probably the best team. They played all season and then they played in the big ten championship game. They played a really good defense at northwestern and he looked like he lost confidence. I i don't know that but he just there was no chris. Alaba ver- and trae sermon ran the ball. Like he'd never run before and looked great. And but the passing game was left a lot to be desired to the point where A lotta people were saying. Hey wilson's now the the number two pick quarterback guy in the draft behind trevor lawrence. Now you fast forward. After this. And i'm talking to different people in football circles. Who our coaches. And they're like i would just discussions going to be really interesting now. What the jaguars may have between trevor lawrence and just field so just like justin feels was phenomenal tonight especially after taking a big shot. In the ribs from james galaxy that ended up being targeting and scou- scott ejected from another playoff game. Just like he did last year against shoe. But i mean these were some deep shots that he was throwing down field. I just thought well how they look terrific on really on both sides of the ball. I think they looked better than they had on. Defense a- this year given the competition but the one eighty on justin field from where he was where people felt about him after the northwestern game. I mean am. I understanding that am i stating that. I mean you. See the same thing i'm seeing. A lot of people were panicking about him. After the northwestern game in will i would say with the three interceptions against indiana and then the way he looked against northwestern. But how much do you think is with a higher state for you know. Not only they not played as many games so they haven't had As much time to figure their team out like trae sermon wasn't even factor until the last game and now he's he's had two huge games back to back. But then got chris alavi back. He missed the title game I mean they've had dating back and keep track of which week it was when they had their covert outbreak but and they had to cancel a game. But i mean they've had guys obviously going in and out of The twenty one day quarantine. That is now what seventeen days Like the day was out at one point like they may just be a case of. They finally got their whole team together at once. And they actually didn't those there were without three starters You know harry. Miller is one of their better offense of lineman. There were without a couple of defensive. Lineman they were allowed master teague forgotten man. Because that's not fair to him. But the way trae sermon trish. All of a sudden turned into the same same version that we saw ezekiel. Oh here by. The ezekiel elliott. Who was not even like in all conference honorable mention or second team all conference to the big ten year. They win the title because he just went wild in the three postseason games. And and now we're seeing trae sermon. Do that transform. It looks like they got. Adrian peterson to transfer from oklahoma compared to like elevated his game to ridiculous proportions. The i will say this. I feel like of the two of us. And i'm not trying to pop on the back here I feel like of the two of us. I was a little more of a believer in having a little more believer in justin feels. Maybe than you were at least as a passer. And i think some of that honestly stems from hearing all the elite eleven guys. And seeing him there where they raved about him in ways to a degree that they said. He's probably the most talented player they've had come through their Or quarterback and he looked like that god and i mean. This was the had some great performances. Obviously the numbers. You put up last year and at times this year. But i mean on that stage. The one thing that jumped out at me and you are both at the national title game in that stadium. A year ago was when it was head to head because trevor lawrence look fantastic when he shredded alabama as a true freshman. And that's when the hype. I would say that's when all of a sudden everybody fell in love with trevor lawrence and he is gonna be the first pick in the draft and a couple of years from now and he's done nothing to undermine that he's been terrific off the field. He's been terrific on the field. But joe burrow really was like outshine them last year in that head to head and certainly You know with justin feels it today just kind of was it was an amazing
Cowboys vs. Eagles score: Michael Gallup leads aerial assault against Philadelphia, keeps Dallas alive in NFC East
"Dallas cowboys ended the philadelphia eagles season on sunday afternoon at. At and t. stadium. That's right the eagles now with only four wins with only one game left even though the cowboys will need some help from them. The philadelphia eagles are officially done. And we'll have to look forward to two thousand and twenty one when their quarterback will be jalen hurts full-time or carson wentz. Who knows there's a lot to get into as it as it relates to this game again so many things happen. Let's start the first highlight to show you here. If you're watching on youtube sean. Jackson did indeed have an eighty one yard touchdown. Jalen hurts finds him about six minutes left in the first quarter. Just absolutely rose. We had absolutely chance. This is the type of thing that we've grown accustomed to seeing. Unfortunately from sean jackson he has gotten the better end of the cowboys for a long time over a decade. Schon jackson has been shown the cowboys now with multiple quarterbacks in multiple home stadiums schon jackson has had success. I'll give it to him that. At least this time. He remembered to score the touchdown and not fumbled the ball right in front of the goal line. Let's keep on. Let's get to some more happy. Highlights and michael gallup who was in contention for our star of the game. His first touchdown was a beauty as the second quarter. Began getting the cowboys. Back in the mix narrowing the margin. Fourteen to ten michael gallup like i said look at that elite camera work from fox. We'll talk about that in a second. Michael gallup quickly got to work. He had a big gain a little bit after a few minutes later. Look at this starting his own thirty five running down the sideline a bunch of eagles chasing him. Michael gallup doing all the work doing all the work doing all the work and then speaking of work you know the cowboys as we all know they like to feed ezekiel elliott. This was later on that possession the cowboys trailing fourteen. Ten and ezekiel elliott. There's no video of this so apologies. If you're watching on youtube you can see our freeze frame image. A looked like ezekiel elliott. Who had a really great game really looked like he scored on. This place is a bad angles from the tv copy but to me to my naked eye it looks like zeke. Elliott is over the line. I think that that's a touchdown. Zeke mike mccarthy did not challenge this. The cowboys wound up settling for fuel narrowing the margin fourteen to thirteen. They would ultimately start their climb back and they're ferocious. Climb back in fact. Let's get to that. Climb another michael gallup touched down here at the end of the first half andy dalton not even messing around just looking right for him and michael gallup again just a superstar a true wide receiver. One cowbys have three of them. Dalton schultz you can see very happy for his teammate. This was a phenomenal performance by michael gap

". Chapter Twenty Seven Verse Twenty Seven. . Your riches, , your wears your merchandise, , your mariners in your pilots, , your talkers, , your dealers in merchandise, , and all your men of war who were in you with all your crew that is in your midst. . Sink into the heart of the seas on the day of your fall. . So Ezekiel, Chapter , Twenty seven continues this prophecy. . From. . Zico Sir. . God speaking through a zeal. . A prophecy against tire this city, , it was known for its wealth and known for its international trade. . Through the water on the sea and so when you hear this verse, , your riches, , your wears your merchandise, , your mariners, , your pilots, , basically all that made. . Tire wealthy all that made the economy of tires strong your coworkers, , your dealers in merchandise and all your men of war who were in you those who protect the city. . So thank the economy of tire and think the military of tire. . So it was strong. . Both of them were strong a strong economy and a strong military. . and. . What God is saying in this prophecy is all of it. . Sinks into the heart of the sea on the day of your fall. . So. . What are we take away from that? ? How does this lead us to pray? ? Well certainly among other things without question. . This verse reminds us that we must never put our trust in an economy in this world. . And we must never put our trust in a military in world. . Now that's not to say that economy is unimportant or a military is unimportant. . Fact, , we could look at other places in scripture. . See many places where an economy we want to develop in a way that glorifies got as good for all people made in his image in way that is good for the poor in a way that is just and right and promotes prosperity and good for all people made in God's image. . So yes, economies , important and military is also important especially when you look at Romans chapter thirteen and the responsibility God's entrusted to governments as. . To, , wield the sword to protect people against Yvonne to promote. . Good. . So it's not an economy or a military is bad. . But it is wrong to put your trust in either. . One of these things because they are fleeting economies rise and fall military's grow strong and weak and when we put our trust in the things of this world, , even things like an economy or in a military than we are putting our trust in places that will not hold that will in the words of Ezekiel Chapter. . Twenty seven verse Twenty Seven Sink Into the heart of the sea on the day of our fall in other words God in his sovereignty can bring an economy or a military to nothing in an instant. . So this is why the Sauna says some trust in chariots and some in horse his but we trust in the name of the Lord. . Our God. . So we say that together in prayer God right now. . Especially amidst a pandemic that has. . Wreaked havoc on economies all around the world we see. . In a fresh way that we cannot put our trust ultimately in an economy in a job in money in. . Savings accounts. . Or we we thank you for your blessing for your grace and so many different ways in jobs and money that you provide in it and savings accounts even that can be used in different ways for your glory. . We pray that you would help us keep us guard us from putting our trust in our money in wealth in economies. . And God Garda's from putting our trust ultimately in military's even as I think about pastoring many people who are in the military in our church family. . Praise you for your grace in them for your common grace in all kinds of people who served to promote good and protect people against evil. . God, , we pray for your blessing on them in a Romans chapter thirteen kind of way for the carrying out of your purposes for government at the same time. . God We say before you now even as some Brothers and sisters who are praying this right now are in the military. . We put our trust in our military might or power. . We don't put our trust in chariots and horses. . You are the only one who is worthy of all of our trust. . We put all of our trust in you and we praise you. .

To the number of the years of their punishment. . So long. . Shall you bear the punishment of the House of Israel? ? And when you've completed. . You should lie down a second time but on your right side and bear the punishment of the House of Judah. . Forty days I assign you a day for each ear and you shall set your face toward the siege of Jerusalem with your arm Baird and you shall prophesy against the city. . And behold I will place cords upon you. . So you cannot turn from one side to the other till you have completed the days of your siege. . And so much we could talk about in these verses but the basic picture is God is calling Ezekiel as a prophet to do two things one to prophesy about the city. . So to speak the words of God and to tell what God has said to him to the people and then second to demonstrate these words with his life. . He's specifically talking about the punishment of the House of Israel the punishment of the House of Judah, , basically God's judgment on Israel and Judah and how he would take action specifically lying on his left side for three hundred ninety days. . On his right side for forty days representing the number of years associated with judgement punishment toward the House of Israel and the House of Judah we don't know specifics of how this would play out like for all those three hundred ninety days on the left side and forty days on the right side. . But basically. . Lying there for long periods of time on those days, , unable to turn from one side to the other as a demonstration is an illustration is a picture of the words he's speaking. . Now, , how does that lead us to pray? ? Why want wants to think about our lives, , your life, , my life today this week. . So again, , we're seeing this over and over again, there , unique things about Ezekiel Old Testament prophets but there are also parallels to our lives as women who have received the word of God and have the spirit of God and us have been commissioned to proclaim the word of God, , not just with our words. . But with our actions with lives that are fluctuation of the words, , we proclaim the words we believe the words God has spoken. . And Specifically. . I was reading this and as I. . WanNa lead us to pray I was thinking about people who are going through difficult times difficult circumstances. . Could it be than even or difficult circumstances situations we walk through? ? That there are things we are portraying about who got is in the midst of hard times that are intended by God to be a reflection of the truth we believe. .

"Ezekiel chapter two verse three. . And he said to me son of man. . I send you to the people of Israel to nations of rebels who have rebelled against me. . They and their fathers have transgressed against me to this very day. . So this is God speaking to Ezekiel calling him appointing him sending him out as a prophet to the people of Israel to other nations to nations of rebels who have rebelled against God, , who transgressed against God and. . Kills jobs to proclaim the word of God to them to call them to repentance. . Now, , there's so many things that are unique here about Ezekiel and unique about prophets in the Old Testament. . But as I was reading this, , I couldn't help think about John Chapter, , Seventeen John Chapter Twenty and twenty one what Jesus said to his disciples, , which is prayed for his disciples when he when he talked about how the father sent him. . So that was obviously very unique the father sending the son to die on across for. . The Salvation of centers and to proclaim salvation to centers but Jesus said as the father sent me so I send you. . So. . Yes. . There's obviously unique things about Jesus but you just as drawing a comparison here and saying you are sent in the same way I was sent and this is a picture. . We see all throughout scripture those who trust in God those who have the word of God. . So profits here in the Old Testament like Ezekiel think by Zeta Chapter six, , whom shall I send who will go for us here. . Am I send Me Ezekiel right here in chapter two verse, Threes , Being Sent My. God . and encouragement I want to give you right now as supposing you're a follower of Jesus. . He placed your faith in Jesus you have the word of God you have the spirit of God living in you you are sent by God. . So yesterday unique things about prophets in the Old Testament and there's unique things about Jesus. . But as the father sent Jesus. . So Jesus sent you and me with his word into a world where people need to hear his word right around us today there are people tomorrow people in your life in each of our sphere of influence who need to hear his word who have rebelled against God walking in disobedience to God, , and that's a road leads to eternal judgement and you and I have the word that can draw them to eternal life. . The can save them from their San and rebellion against God and restore them to relationship with him. .

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