Fresh update on "holy spirit" discussed on The Loveish Podcast
"Another thing that we miss out on is the fact that vulnerability allows your relationships to thrive when you're actually vulnerable. You have solid healthy relationships. How many times have you know something happened in a relationship and you say to the person i really wish you would have just told me versus trying to guess how you think i would act and making it harder on yourself grow. You could have just told me that. I would've fill in the blank but because of a lack of communication or fear of being vulnerable the other person or even you sometimes assumes what you feel like the other person is going to think or feel. We have got to stop doing that. Don't assume you know what the other person thinks or feels. I tell my clients all the time when you do this. You actually rob yourself of the ability to be loved and supported by your friends like your furnace probably liddy as ever but you won't find out because you're too afraid to become vulnerable with them so if you have people in your life that are like yeah girl you can talk to me you know. You can do xyz. I'm not saying just like let it all hang out. Yeah you gotta have a testing period and yet you got to listen to the voice of the holy spirit but don't use that as an excuse for why you are not being vulnerable in your relationships and the thing about it is you get to choose. How vulnerable you are with what relationship and again ask god for wisdom. So every relationship does not require the same level of vulnerability and they don't even deserve the same levels of vulnerability. You're not going to be as vulnerable with your boss as you are with your spouse. No that's just a little bit weird and crosses professional boundaries so you have to use wisdom with how vulnerable you are and choosing which relationships you are actually vulnerable in and then like i said asking god for wisdom maybe in some of your relationships you became a little bit too vulnerable so how you feel really uncomfortable asking god god. Is this person that i should be vulnerable with or is a person that i need to be guarded with and sometimes you know god will tell you that there are certain things you need to guard that. Maybe you don't need to share with that person. Although this is a person you can be vulnerable with for example if the holy spirit has you in a season where you are creating something. Maybe that's not the time that he wants you to release what he whispered in your ear for you to create who this person so this person is someone that you can be really vulnerable with. But it's just not the time to release what god has told you. If.
Fresh update on "holy spirit" discussed on Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey
"Adding insult to injury with all of these completely illogical illogical restrictions especially when it comes to masking kids. The mayor of san francisco Decided that she was going to flout her own city. It's almost like tiring to even tell the story again. Like we saw with governor whitman. We saw it with gavin new some We saw with cuomo. We saw with a his brother. The other cnn cuomo We saw with mayor lightfoot in chicago we saw it with. Maria bows in dc. We saw at the met gala when you know working class. Asc in her working class immigrant designer. Who is a immigrant from toronto guy. And she is literally engaged multimillionaire but we saw there when they weren't wearing masks. But the servant classes wearing masks. Nancy pelosi at her napa event. She wasn't wearing masks in a mask and none of her very rich elite guests at this fundraising event. Where wayne masks. But this serving class were wearing masks. So gosh we've seen these democrats do the same thing over and over again. In mayor mayor. London breed of san francisco. She floated her own rule and she was at some club with some blm activists and she was dancing and she didn't have a mask on. The picture was taken and it started circulating twitter. People are talking. About what a hypocrite. They are but honestly guys obviously democrats. Don't care like obviously the don't they keep. Electing these people like obviously the media. Don't care that they don't actually care because it's not politically expedient to point out the hypocrisy of democratic politicians who don't abide by their own rules instead they just want to punch down. They want to punch down at people who are understandably vaccine hesitant in southern states. Because that's what the media has become. That's what the left wing media has become. They don't speak truth to power. They actually tried to pummel everyday private citizens because it stokes hate it. Stokes fear is dukes resentment stokes division and that supposedly is supposed to help their ratings. But i don't know. I think that there are plenty of shows that stoke that kind of fear on. Msnbc and cnn that don't actually have great ratings but man they are trying and so. I just realized like yes. We can point out this hypocrisy. And i think we should because you never know who's mind is going to change and it just goes to show that like the people who tell you that you need to be locked inside your home that you need to mask your two year old that your two year old needs to be wearing a mask at at school. They aren't scared like they're not wearing masks. And remember the recommendation is supposedly that even if you're vaccinated you're supposed to be wearing a mask and that's the kind of rules that they are enforcing on vaccinated and unvaccinated people in these cities in these democrat run cities and they're not abiding by the rules themselves because they're not scared they want us scared they won't you compliant. They want us dependent. They won't you controlled but they absolutely have they have no intention of abiding by those rules themselves. She was asked about this. And charles cooke again of national review said that her response was. We don't need the fun police and she was feeling the spirit and i wasn't thinking about a mask okay. Okay so she was feeling the spirit in this club. We don't need to fund police. She said okay. I just can't. I just cannot because because two year olds and three year olds like it. They like the mask but you don't like them. Ask mayor of san francisco. So it's okay for you not to abide by it just cannot with these people. Holy spirit helped me There was another tweet. Also that made me ask the holy spirit to help me. Hold my tongue from david from who is kind of unstable.

"There's endless amounts of godly fruit that that can be produced so i continue to push and press into that and boy. There's a lot of people that have different theological opinions. Who who are doing those two who call jesus lord any produce spiritual fruit hundred percent. Yeah and that's i think the key right to understand is where is where. Where's the fruit. Was it producing and some of the problems right now. We're seeing in even juggles miss some of the fruits bad right like our our little clan right right and it works on both sides of the deconstruction. I there's there's lots of that and It so absolutely. I think that's the right the right way to to do that. So it's so fascinating to me. Even you know you mentioned all this historical things like yes even the council's we like to look at those particular protestants and go. Hey they made a statement and that's what we believe in the nuts good but that didn't come about because everybody was all like buddy buddy right because they're fighting about it and they said right. Let's go figure out what this means. And so the weaves in the next fifteen right like where where the church gets together the first council and they're like should people have to be circumcised. Or what should we tell them not to do. That was a big deal and people left that some people left that meeting mad chretien. We should just know that. That's how it is. Because we're human beings and i think like you said earlier the holy spirit can lead us right and we have to bit to trust that as well and then love one another in the midst of all of it and it's it's not always easy But it is. It is the right thing to do. That's fascinating okay. So we have. We've mentioned your book. But i don't think we've mentioned the title. So the book is called. Not all who wander spiritually loss which is really nice Token reference story of church. So why did you write that like. What were you hoping to kind of to kind of give to your to.
Prophet Mike Thompson: The Cure for the Lawlessness Is the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit
"I want my audience to be as encouraged as have been that in the midst of this darkness. God says hold on. I'm not done with america because many people that seem to think it's over when the end times it's over you know rates to run into the caves but that's not what god has been saying to. You know others evil in the world there always has been always will be until the second coming of the lord. Jesus christ i mean we understand those things but there is victory also in the bible it talks about in the last days their scriptures in the new testament where the apostle paul particularly was talking about in the last days and he explains how that there would be all this kind of evil and lawlessness. Lawlessness is a good word. Apostle paul love to talk about lawlessness. He talked about this present evil age and connected that with lawlessness. How that the entire mass of human thinking devoid of the reality and the truth of god and the revelation of the holy spirit in our life produces a mindset in humanity to where they they don't believe in god and not follow after the morals of god and thereby there's a lawlessness that occurs spiritual lawlessness. We've seen recently. A lot of physical lawlessness legal lawlessness. If you will and But the holy spirit also inspired in the book of acts where on the day of pentecost when the holy spirit came and he moved in any birth the church and then they questioned the people around the heard him speaking tongues. They saw the tong tongues of fire on the people's heads it all that was going. They were praising god they were magnifying. God in people that were watching questioned that and so the first great sherman there where peter said that this is that that joel prophesy and he said in the last day jobs i will pour out of my spirit. So if the bible at the new testament says in the last days there will be lawlessness. It also says in the last days. I will pour out of my spirit. I'm saying that the antidote that you're for the lawlessness is the outpouring of the holy spirit
The Lord Spoke to Prophet Mike Thompson About a Tearing in Washington D.C.
"Five and a half six months ago. Lord spoke to me about a tearing in washington. Dc vision a tearing. Yeah in this vision. He took me to washington. Dc and he showed me politicians. There were many of them. Those in the su- administration right at this particular point others many where there was a tearing their clothes. It would occur in their shirt or their blouse should their pants their skirt and the tears would be like two to four inches. They start at the top and they would go down towards the bottom and the symbolism of that i think was important because it meant from heaven earth. It was like the tearing of the veil. When jesus was crucified and then parts of their skin would be exposed and that exposing was what god was beginning to show me at that point that as we proceeded that there would be greater exposing not just exposing. But something done about it. And that's why the angels in the vision. That i had just a few days. Ago is so important. The army of angels because something was being done about it. We can't see everything that's happening behind the scenes. You see my My gift is to see what's going on in the spiritual realm and then report it to the body of christ so that they can see those kind of things and have hope and have a sense of direction and purpose. The prophecy never ever ever exalts itself above the word of god So we always match. According to what god is saying but one of the things we have to understand is even though that the holy spirit will never violate the word of god. The holy spirit doesn't mind violating our interpretation and misunderstanding of the word of god Because he is god and so what he's doing is he's moving. There is a great revival. That is happening right now. Airy this is we are. On the verge. We're on the coast of something that is just changing like
Prophet Mike Thompson Was Taken up by the Spirit Over Washington D.C.
"You're sharing something really dramatic of more than a vision. You were taken up in the spirit you said over washington. Dc and god spoke to you and said prophet. Stir the spirit. I instantly a staff appeared in my hand. And so i took the staff that ended the staff and lowered down toward washington. Dc and then just with my hand you know the staff. I just began to stir. Stir stir and there was a swirling that began to take place down below me it was in the spiritual realm and it was like a spiritual whirlwind And as it was turning i saw angels appear in the swirling and they began to move. There were some angels that were warrior angels. Some of them were messenger. Angels but mostly on the war side in really. Tell the difference if you don't mind my asking two ways number one and this is my experience i've and developed over the years is that i can tell by appearance number two. There's a knowing because a lot of things that happen in spiritual realm are not spoken. They're just understood because the holy spirit impresses them in your heart and by the sheer experience itself. You can ascertain what's going on. You just feel it. You just know it. And so. I knew that the spirit of god was causing the angels to begin to change into shift things in washington. Dc so this is warfare. were talking about. Oh absolutely absolutely. And somehow god gave you this honor of innocence being the one he chose to activate this. You didn't ask for this. You weren't aware of it until suddenly find yourself in the middle of this. What happened after that. Well then the lord shed listen to the sound. So i was watching and i began to listen for a minute and i said what sound lord. What do you want me to here. And these are the words he spoke he said the sound of marching in the top of the mulberry trees the sound of chariots wheels and horses hooves
Author Ruth Graham Explains How God Can Transform Your Loneliness in Her New Book
"Can be transformed and that's very positive. God can transform it into his purposes so that we deepen our relationship with him and with others and have more satisfying relationships with him and with others. It's interesting because i think it's obvious you know. In this conversation that the lord created us to be with other people maybe not constantly but but there is something undeniable. We're not machines for some reason we long for fellowship with other people and then of course you can get too much of it and you want some solitude to recalibrate as you put it into to think but it's interesting that god made us for that and we don't get that something happens. I'm not sure what happens but clearly. That's when people feel lonely it's a pang but you're saying in the book transforming loneliness that because god is a person he's not an energy force we can have fellowship with him when we're otherwise alone Talk about that. Well you're you're so right. God made us for community and he said it is not good for man to be alone. I mean he said that Genesis right up front and he he himself is in community with the triune god with the followed some in the holy spirit. He's in community and he made us for community and it's important for us to attach ourselves to some sort of a community that feeds our spirit. And for me that's church that's made home group and meeting with people that i can fellowship with on a deeper level. Well it's interesting. Because i think that you know if you really know the lord you're never alone but there are a lot of people that they might say. I'm a christian. But they don't have that kind of relationship or maybe it feels awkward to them. What do you say to those folks. Develop it work on developing it. Because he is right there he he knows the scripture says he makes a home for the lonely. He knows how they feel. David talked about being feeling like a pelican in the wilderness. David understood what loneliness was dot understands. And certainly no one was more alone than jesus on the cross so they know loneliness is and we can go to god and tell him how would we need to express our long this to him and he will fill us with his
Prophet Mike Thompson on His Supernatural Experiences With the Spiritual Realm
"Sharing another thing entirely of being quote unquote taken up in the spirit Over the earth Flying over to a being above. I mean a lot of people. Think what the heck is this guy even talking about. But i know you well enough now to know that. You're not making this up and i know other people who've experienced things just like you described so not the only person that from whom i've ever heard this but What do you have things like. You're describing now happen to you somewhat regularly or was this particularly rare. How did it strike you win. It occurred. I have experiences regularly. I would say every day some form but there are various forms. Sometimes it's the voice. Ah god sometimes it's a dream. I dream all that often. My wife is really adept in that. But i see things envision formed and the lord will come to me in various ways number one. There'd be a vision. Manny where it just imprinted into my brain is kind of like on the canvas of my heart inside because you know we have an inner spirit and inner person who has the ability to connect and operate in the spiritual round to see hear feel touch. See things and so. I've learned over the years. How that when. That comes up when i see it in my heart. That is the holy spirit painting that image on the campus of my heart. I see that is very a but it goes from there in various levels up to A full blown vision where. I'm watching the thing just right in front of me. Sometimes i'm taking up. And i'm carried to other places Over the nation or other nations. Even and i see things but very often what happened. You know what the apostle paul said it very well. Second corinthians twelve when he was talking about being caught up to third heaven and he said weather in the body or out of the body. I don't know he said i know it happened man. And so. That's what happens with me sometimes. I'm like one foot in the natural one foot in the spiritual realm and i see both simultaneously
Being Empowered by the Holy Spirit
"I samuel chapter ten verse six. Then the spirit of the lord will rush upon you and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. Now this verse. Don't miss the picture that correlation between the spirit of god on someone and prophecy proclamation of god's word. This is a picture. We see all throughout the old testament at different points. Here it's with saul this promise the spirit lord will come upon you and the result is you will speak. You'll be turned into another person. You'll be able to speak in supernatural ways and we see this again all throughout the old testament when you see prophets. What's the prophet empowered by the of god to do. A profit is empowered by the spirit of god to proclaim the word of god with supernatural power. Now what's interesting is when you get to acts chapter two and you see the holy spirit. Come down at pentecost what happens in that scene. All these people start to speak the word of god and all these different languages and peter stands up and preaches. He quotes from joel chapter two. About how the spirit of god will come upon men and women and they shall. Prophesy it's interesting. You look in luke and acts so lucrative both the book of luke and the book of acts and every time. There's eight different times where we see the spirit of god filling someone and every time that person speaks or proclaims god's word flowing from that filling of the spirit so the picture. I want to encourage you with today for everyone who has trusted in. Jesus you have the holy spirit living in you. And i want to ask you to consider what purpose is the holy spirit living in you. Four and based on all we've seen in the old testament what we see in the new testament and specifically i would point to acts chapter one verse eight. You'll receive power when the holy spirit comes upon you and you will be jesus says my what my witnesses
How Morningstar Ministries' Chris Reed Describes How He Heard the Voice of the Lord at Age 8
"We were just talking about your your career. I love to get to know people and for my audience to get to know people so you said that when you were a young kid eight years old you heard the audible voice of god. I've never heard the audible voice of god most people. I'm sure have not what. What was your environment like. Your parents were very serious about their faith. So this seemed maybe normal to you. What did it. How did that manifest itself. When it first occurred so i was bad ties in the holy spirit at eight years old. And the first time i heard the audible voice of god. It was actually in a dream and the best way i can describe. It is sounded almost like a mixture of thunder anna trombone. I know that doesn't make sense at all. But it certainly. That's that's how it resonated with me and in the dream you know it was the voice of the lord which i- firm i firmly believe it was the voice of the lord telling me don't try to fit in. It's okay that you're different you know. Don't try to gain acceptance from your peers in school and such. You know there is a calling on your life. And and don't try to conform to anybody's image of you. That was basically what the lord said and i you know hearing audible voice of god. I'd probably have had it happened. Maybe five times in my whole life so it's not something that happens all the time but it definitely will shake you to the core and make you realize it's a serious thing. The fear of the lord will get a hold of your heart and there's nothing like the fear of the lord when you fear the lord yet. Nothing else to
Man vs the Holy Ghost's Influence With Justin Combs
"Special guest is returning guests theologian and podcast justin combs. Welcome back to the show justin. All right thanks michael. Glad to be back round to round two exactly. How many make it this far. I last time we left off on a sad note depressing. Though we'll we'll get back to all that fun. But i we left on prayer and i wanted to touch on a few things just before we got back to the prayer shirt so more basic stuff like you know. What is the bible to you. I don't know if we tackle that last time. I didn't write it down. So what does the bible to you. I mean they got a lot of things in there that are. Yeah yeah. I mean it's so it's a lot of stuff to me. I mean i can come at it from like faith. Perspectives scholarly perspective literary perspective. And i guess like from the faith perspectives. Go like i believe. It's the inspired word of god. Now what is what. Do i mean when i got into that a little bit last time just kind of like probably maybe maybe a good way to put it like human experiences of the divine dieted sometimes more sometimes less by the holy spirit but it is human experiences Put down okay. Let's go off of that experiences. Put down human experiences interacting with this deity correct. Okay may maybe two more explicit or less explicit extent depending on which text you're looking at within the thome
'Until Unity' Author Francis Chan Talks About Miracles
"Know francis. China's i didn't really. I just knew he was kind of a big deal. He wrote this big. You'll book called crazy love. But i don't keep up with everything so i met him As i think. I mentioned a few times when i was in kansas city at mike bickel's big International house of prayer kansas city fellowship. And i just Grew to know him and love him. And i thought it'd be fun to have him on the program so you could meet him to francis chan. Come on in welcome so good to see you man miss you. It's good to see you. And i miss you too. I miss your voice. You've got a funny voice. You crack me up a friend of mine. I i realize that you kind of when you do your full comic mode when you're preaching you get in that you get all tortured and stuff and you you sound like you're cross between gilbert godfried and you'll brenner glad you don't know who they are because you'd be insulted and blessed at the same time look you and i got to know each other and we kid around a lot. So you speak my love language But the joy of being in kansas city for me was processing it with you because both of us are astonished by some of this prophetic stuff and his holy spirit stuff. And we're kinda looking at each other because we don't we believe it but we're just blown away. Can you talk about that a little bit. Because that's part of what gets to this unity message of people coming from different streams quote unquote to try to see things through each others eyes. Talk about that a little bit. And i was so glad you were there because you would ask the questions like wait. Wait tell me is vision where you actually there you know. You're asking all the things that i was thinking because it's different to these guys are talking about miracles like we talk about brushing our teeth like it's just then this happened in this happened. You're like wait. A sack in this is fascinating. Have you documented this. Do you have proof of this. Can you show me doctors records regarding us right. And then you've got this other guy. Chris who's like reading our mail telling us things about our own lives our friends at were going. How did you know that you couldn't have known that you can't even research that online and so we're just sitting there amazed at the stories that have this like history over the last fifty years of things coming true. Just like these guys said. And i'm skeptical
A Prayer for the Filling of God's Power and Love
"A prayer for the felling. Of god's power and love by debbie mcdaniel. I pray that of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his spirit in your inner being so that christ mates well in your hearts through faith and i pray. The eu being rooted and established in love may have power together with all the saints to grasp how wide and long and high end. Deep is the love of christ and to know this love that surpasses knowledge that you may be filled to measure of all the fullness of god he fusions three sixteen through nineteen god is powerful and loving and he desires to fill. Our lives are days with that same power in love through his holy spirit. Paul prayed this prayer over the fusions he had spent over three years with these people working with the church of ephesus he loved them long to see them walking closely with god. His desire was that they would be continually strengthened with god's power and living out their faith with the example of the love of christ. We can know this in our heads yet. Find it difficult at times to walk it out in daily life. We're busy we're tired. We feel alone or broken or distracted. We get offended. We harbor bitterness or resentment but no matter what we might be facing or feeling when we're willing to stand together as the body of christ dependent on god for the spirits fresh filling of power in love all other things lose their hold on us. For god's love encompasses all it reaches to every dark crevice and fills every need our longing. It gives power to forgive and to let go of the past it releases since hold and gives peace to the hurting it is powerful and surpasses our own knowledge and understanding. It is wide. It stretches to a greater expanse an extent than we can ever imagine
Where Mormon Doctrine and Biblical Doctrine Diverge
"You're saying that there are real sticking points. Unavoidable problems between what the mormon faith teaches unequivocally. And what the bible says unequivocally so this is not just you know point of view or or something like that because i think that many people could make the case that what the roman catholic church teaches is is right. That people can twist things in other words. You can have a conversation there about. Do they believe this. Exactly this exactly. But you're saying that the lines are really bright and bold that separate mormon doctrine from biblical doctrine. In this case. So i guess my question is do you When you're talking about that you say that the lds church teaches that we can become like god. How is that different from somebody saying that. Look the scripture says that were made in his image and we will be made to be like him through the process of sanctification. And that kind of thing. I think that the eastern orthodox call it. Theo cysts in other words. That's kind of the point is that we're supposed to be more and more like him. So that's not really a problem. Where does it become a problem. Yeah so so as you mentioned biblically through the process of vacation and the holy spirit dwelling in us. We are conformed to the image of christ. We've been having airship with christ right in the kingdom of heaven but that's not what mormonism teaches. They actually teach not that we become like god but that we ourselves become gods and so eventually once. You've progressed to this. Point of god hood you then have the power authority to create your own worlds to populate those world with your spiritual and go through the same process that we are then in on this earth and so it is a complete perversion of the idea that we somehow can attain that which god now has and so And just the exclusivity of the claim that the church is the only institutional organization that has the correct power authority from god right there several organizations in the world that claim that authority in the mormon church claims that they are the actual church that jesus instituted during his earthly ministry and only with the authority and the proper ordinances contained within that organization can an individual live eternally in the presence of
Eyes Are the Window - burst 1
"Uh eyes are the windows of the soul. Have you heard the cliche. The eyes are the window of the soul. When i look into your eyes. What would the glare same to me. Could you look into my eyes and see what you need to see you. Can you tell my motions. What i know how you truly feel about the same. It was said. William shakespeare who i spoke in poem about how you can determine the lights and wall of a person whom you barely even know. According to william shakespeare i is are the windows to the saw. This means that we can know about one soul. Only by reading the is deeply and can evaluate his temperament a personality. Because through the eyes man's feelings and thoughts are clearly reflected. The soul is a driver and equal spirit. Part of a human being which is regarded as immortal. An is are the organs of the visual system. According to williams shakespeare our is show the truth no matter what face we put on in any situation the best way to get to know someone is to look them in their eyes and notice what they disclose about their mental state. He had originally obtained the scripture from the king. James bible verses matthew six twenty two and twenty four. The word soul has several meanings which is states a person's moral or emotional nature or sense of identity. The question is can you determine a person's identity are you able to tell them matter of someone's heart throughout time people have been able to harden their hearts and emotions because of reasons unknown and willingness to deter from others. Who have wrong then. I can respect. What william shakespeare written because in fact during his time the nature of humans were more subtle than what we have now even as the biblical speaks and theological terms of scholars who ciphered scrolls that were written by the disciples who wrote based upon what they have seen. Can you think of something you have seen that was embedded in the eyes of a person you once knew and loved. Did it affect their actions or the total opposite of the meaning of immortality. Was there a long lasting mental effect change of attitude or even yet anger with anxiety without hesitation to rectify. Something was there an escape of the moment and you tried to raise it out of your mind completely. I want you to one day. Look into a person's is open and then close your minds. Do you bring into the present things you already know. Are you able to say in fact this theory is true. Can you relate to the bible verses even though god said the holy spirit will lead and guide you to all truth meaning meaning in life. You're leading not that of someone else's you can share a moment with the person without trying to analyze what can be done to or about a person. What can you say to them if they ask. Did you look into my eyes. Tell me what do you see. And what if they told you truthfully all she said was completely wrong. So again i ask you. Did you close the window that was open or did you choose to go through the open window to create more of an issue for them matthew. Five twenty nine. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell Explanation to lift purposely kosher is to people so you can live an honest life. According to the bible mark twenty eight twenty five in his eyes were open. His sight was restored and he saw everything. Clearly example. wrongfully looking about a person can blind the fact of something special about a person. Judging without something someone else may have seen even as you learn to learn about a person by knowing them you can see as to his how his eyes are open and sight was restored by not judging and reasons being formed without prejudice. When you see a person down and out what you think of esa first impression are you quick to judge or your is just playing tricks on you. There are reasons for things most could not understand or care to ask. And i ask you again are the is the window to the soul and the answer to the question. Both shakespeare and the bible is yes. Reasons being yes your own soul that determines if you are back biting judging and jumping to the conclusion you're right about things you don't even know so when you say someone who thinks they are right about the actual color of a person's is just think about what you've seen and then look around outside to see if you're jumping into the wrong person side.
Hide in the Father's Arms
"Sometimes we'll get stalled. Sometimes we get sidetracked when we walk with jesus and the power of the holy spirit to the destination that god the father designed for us. The results are better than we could ask for or imagine and now here's your host terry modera loma friend. Have you ever been in this kind of a situation. You've got a plan you prayed about it. god has called you to it. You feel anointed to do it. You feel gifted to do it. You feel like like god is putting things into place for you to do it and then things go wrong. That's what i want to talk to you about today. How to prevent things from going wrong or when they do wrong how to handle it on the basis of the fact that you can hide in the father's arms god the father wants to hold you and hide you from evil coming at you and ruining what he has planned for your day or your mission your ministry your life. Let me read to you. One of my favorite scriptures this is from psalm twenty seven versus five through six in the day of trouble. He will keep me safe in his dwelling. He will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and sent me. Set me high upon a rock then.
God's Gracious Deliverance (Psalm 80:19)
"So i'm chapter eighty verse nineteen restore us o lord. God of hosts. Let your face shine that. We may be saved now. This verse is repeated. Multiple times in psalm chapter eighty for three says restore us. Oh god let your face shine that we may be saved for seven restore us. Oh god of hosts let your face shine that we may be saved verse fourteen. Not the exact same language very similar. Turn again god host look down from heaven and see and then what i read at the beginning the last verse in the song restore us. Oh lord god of hosts let your face shine that we may be saved and in that repetition obviously whenever we are reading through scripture and we see a phrase or a word reverse even like we see here repeated multiple times. Were getting a pretty clear clue from the holy spirit as to the theme of the chapter of what god is saying in his word at this point and the takeaway that we need in our lives from it and the whole picture here and som- chapter eighty is a picture of our need for god's face to shine upon us just think about that imagery in this psalm for the face of god to shine upon us. What does that mean. Well obviously based on the context of this passage the fact that it says let your face shine that we may be saved that we may be saved. Let your face shine that we may be saved. It's a picture of god's saving his people of god providing for his people

The Art of Neighboring
"This series is called next door the art of neighboring appropriately. We're kicking it off on the feast of pentecost which celebrates the coming of the holy spirit to the church. The county christians have term for the holy spirit called the spirit. The wild use the name points to the mysterious nature the holy spirit. You never know what the spirit will lead you. There's an air of danger discomfort and unpredictability when you follow the holy spirit. Holy spirit will lead us to places. We would not naturally go on our own. Ironically the adventure we're at this series is right in our own backyard. The premise of the series is that god wants you to be a source of goodness increase in your neighborhood. If you're a follower of jesus christ the holy spirit singing you to be an inch of his grace to the people that live near you. You do not live where you live by accident. But for reasons of providence reasons known to guide with god. There are no accidents now. You may have chosen your home because you thought it was a good investment or a great location match.

But the truth is god. Had other reasons for pinning you there. God seizes an opportunity to bring his light and love to the people in that community. The christian faith is always a fake the displaced in creation in history and time the christian faith is meant to get very very specific and particular the whole story.

That share their stories of interaction with the holy spirit. And jesus says that the lord wants us to be happy and enjoy the lives he has given us. He wants us to trust that. He has a plan for each of us and ask us to trust that plan. How how do we miss. Gaas attempt to communicate to us for many of us myself included. There are those god moments and because we are all running to soccer practice and getting kids to clarinet lessons and things like that we become human doings instead of human beings. We don't take that time to put into our schedules to reflect to pray to journal. It might be. I think a lot of people when they roll over in bed they pick up their phones and look at the weather and get ready for the next day. They don't intentionally spend that time either reflecting on their lives asking themselves. What is the lord trying to tell me. There is just too much business in our lives that we don't take that time for reflection. So why are people so dismissive. Of god's speaking in their lives like if they're hear them if they hear god speaking and they're like i don't know that's really god speaking you know. Do you think it's because god's trying to get our attention. I think and i've had a couple of interludes like that where the holy spirit was trying to tell me something and i didn't want to hear it unless i was at the point in my life unless the holy spirit list. God was telling me something that fit into my plans. Something that i wanted to hear. I just was not interested in listening any further.

That's in Galatian chapter five versus twenty two and twenty three joy is a fruit. That is born out of a relationship with God intimacy with him, begets joy. He's the source. So joy isn't something we achieve or earn or choose or strive for. It's something we accept. It's something we surrender into. Because that's how we get into and go deeper into relationship with God.

"Holy Spirit says that when we allow him to love us. It's like coming home coming back home to the loving God, we love either I short while or longtime. Jesus uses the same idea to of coming home. When he tells the parable of the prodigal son captured by the Vangelis in chapter fifteen of the book of Luke in that story. A man has two sons the younger of them insults. His father by demanding paid his inheritance early wants the money secured. The sun leaves home goes to a far country and proceeds to squander the money with reckless living to the point of destitution. Desperate and starving and in bad shape. The son decides to return home, he makes plans to beg his father for restoration. But not to his regional position as a son. He figures his father wouldn't take him back as a son. So his plan is to ask for a position as one of the fathers hired servants, the father sees his son coming home, and he sees him while he's still far off. So the fathers clearly been watching for him ever since he left and what's the father's response? He's relieved, and he is ecstatic. That is precious boy has come back. He runs to him ropes flying arms open, and the sun doesn't even have a chance to get a speech out the one he'd rehearsed about maybe being accepted back as a lowly servant, the father interrupts him and immediately accepts him back as a son. In fact, the father treats, his son like royalty. He puts a robe on his shoulders signifying that the sun is indeed member of that man's family. Family. He puts a ring on his finger signifying that the sun has the full thirty that a member of that family would have he puts sandals on his feet signifying. The sun is indeed a son and not a servant and the father arranges a feast a big party to celebrate his son's return. The sun returned not to rejection not to punishment. Not even to Justice and fairness, but to unconditional love and acceptance, he is welcomed and embraced and celebrated. And then the son does something radical. Though. He's no doubt humbled. He receives his father's love though. It doesn't make sense. He accepts it. He goes into the party he enters into his father's love..

"We have a choice. Holy Spirit says let me in if you want keep me out if you want I will love you the same. Our old selves the physical parts of us that scripture calls are weak flesh. Are what make it difficult for us to let God in to receive his love these old selves in their broken nece are where fear and pain reside. And because of that these old cells make demands on our lives strong demands that we do something to soothe in Medicaid are pain that we do something to deny distract from our fear and these demands are often strong enough and distracting enough to cause us to forget. What is true? And so we quote do something by turning instead of to God to things like anger, selfishness, materialism, workaholic addiction adultery and all the rest. But here's what is true amazing. As it is God offers us the opportunity for a close personal relationship with him. If we're willing to look beyond the distractions. God, the creator of heaven and earth the alpha and the mega the first and the last the beginning and the end that God he chose us personally individually to be the focus of his love. He loves us despite all of our bad choices. He must be mad. I know, but he loves us. And actually that was always his plan in his love. He made us to be loved by him. So no matter what we've done. No matter. Our beliefs about ourselves. No matter are self contempt. He will not be denied he loves us. And we can't stop him. But we can ignore and reject his love those. We can do because he won't force it he won't push through the demands of our weak flesh and force us to receive his love. Each of us is made to receive God's love uniquely how he loves and interacts with me is going to be different from how he loves and interacts with you. He knows our personalities he made us. He knows what we love to do. He designed that to he knows how to engage with us in just the right way. So hearing experiencing one of God's I love us is not something you're going to miss if you're looking for it. You're only gonna miss it. If you're choosing your own way. This choice this choice about whether to begin receiving God's love about whether to fall into a deeper relationship with him is one we face right now in this moment.
