"Welcome to five minutes in churches hosted by Dr Stephen Nicholson where we take a little break from the presence to go exploring the past asked traveled back in time as we look the people events and even the places that have shaped the story of Christianity. This is our story family history. Let's get started. Welcome back to another episode of five minutes in Church history on this episode. We are on location in colonial. Williamsburg and I'm here with a good friend of ours on many times Dr Steve Lawson. Stephen is great to be with you. I can't believe for we all right now. We are in a great. We find each other in grades nine nine. That's right so something happened here on December sixteen seventeen thirty nine what happened here well the grand evangelist himself the Grand Randy Tenor at George Whitfield came to Bruton Parish Church and preached a powerful evangelistic message right here. What's the significance of seventeen thirty nine in the life of George Whitfield well it begins his first American tour it will take him through all of seventeen forty and he will leave in January of seventeen forty he won and he was a sensation. I think in his journal he mentioned that people travel on horseback fourteen mile just to hear this one message to hear this sermon yeah and I know they traveled even further and other places in fact when Whitfield would come to preach most cities would just shut down. They would cancel judicial hearings. Ah Shop would close farmers would come out of the field. They would all come flocking to hear Whitfield pre. No one could compete no-one no-one. What was the title the sermon he gave her the title of sermon is what think he of Christ and is drawn from Matthew twenty two forty two and it's intentionally originally evangelistic because he understood this was a very religious place but without regeneration and without the new birth and so he was intentionally probing the heart and the mind to the chase. Let's cut to the chase. He's got one opportunity what Thinki- of Christ and we are standing standing right here at the church yard of Bruton Parish Church outside and we don't know whether what field was inside or outside likely was probably outside yes so so we are here with him in spirit centuries later and I thought if you could read for us near Great George Whitfield voice a choice paragraph from this sermon yeah to treat S. two yeah this is just one paragraph and it's still early in the message and it shows how just energized he was in the very beginning of this message and so here's Whitfield some and I fear a multitude which no man can easily number are among us who call themselves Christians and yet seldom or never ever seriously think of Jesus Christ it all let me just hit the pause the tax what thinking of Christ what Winfield is saying is the problem is you don't even think about Christ it all and so he goes on to elaborate they think of their shops and their farms their plays they're balls their assemblies and Horse Races Bass for Christ the author and finisher of faith the Lord who has bought poor centers with his precious blood and who is the only thing worthy thinking of alas. He is not in at all and their thoughts or at most in very few of their thoughts but believe me. Oh you earthly sensual well Karnal minded professors however little you may think of Christ now or however industriously you may strive to keep him out of your thought by pursuing suing the lust of the flesh the losted the eyes and the pride of life yet there is a time coming when you will wish you had thought of Christ more and of your pleasure is your less so he is driving at the heart that you must give Christ the place of preeminence. You know it's earlier in the sermon in you. We talked about this earlier. Are this great line from Whitfield. He is unworthy of the name of minister who is unwilling to die for the truth of the Lord Jesus and Whitfield certainly was that he he was he was willing to die and he was often attacked for preaching sermons like this there were death threats on his life and actual real threats upon his life as he even be sleeping in bed and people break into the room and try to stab him to death but Whitfield was willing to die for the message to seal it with his own blood if necessary and a preacher who's not willing to die for his message is rarely powerful as he would live for the message and he did all that for the sake of the Gospel Amen Well. That's Dr Steve Lawson. Listen on George Whitfield on location in Williamsburg Virginia and I'm Steve Nichols and thanks for listening to five minutes in Church history for more ordination or to listen to past episodes.

You'll receive weekly encouragement mm-hmm and ways to reach out to others sign up at Joyce Meyer dot org forward slash greatest gift. Now here's Joyce today series pressing in and pressing on all right. Well I'm going to do a series. This weekend called pressing in impressing on. You didn't clap and I didn't expect you to I. I started to call it gliding in gliding on because I think we'd rather glide than press sadly and this is not any accusation against anyone person but people just don't seem to. I have the tenacity they used to have. And I think it's because life has just become so automated did and in some ways it's harder but it many ways it's easier. I mean what we what we used to make a phone call is amazing seizing to what you do now. And then when I first started studying the word and teaching I mean it was quite a quite a the job to put together. One message to teach. Because you couldn't get on the Internet and say give me all the Scriptures on sin you had to concordance and you had to have this. You need to have something else and I mean I would have books all around me and studies sometimes seven hours for one message and so yeah we all like things easy but when things are too easy to be honest then it ends up not being good for us because is there's always going to be times in your life when things are not going to be easy and you're either going to give up or you're going to have to do a little bit of uh pressing and pressing really just means to press against your pressure. It means the enemies coming against you and instead of you just letting defeat. Oh you you say no way. I know what God's Word says and whatever he told me I can have I will have it in Jesus name I will not quit quit. I will not give up now. I would imagine that there are people here. I just Kinda got in my heart right before I came out. I think there's some people here and you just feel like it has been so long since God has done anything in your life users. He's just been waiting and waiting and waiting and you just don't feel like he's changing you you don't feel like he's changing circumstances and I just want to tell you that as long long as you are believing God is working. Did you hear me as long as you're believing God is working and and just because you don't see anything or feeling thing that does not mean that God is not doing anything a man and so don't let you just don't get discouraged and throwing the towel if anybody is at the point of just wanting to give up. Maybe you came tonight and you said God I gotTa have a word. Are you got to speak to me through Joyce or I'm just going to give while I'm telling you that God says do not give up a men God is working and you know when I'm waiting on something and we all have. How many of your waiting on something I mean? We all have things that we're waiting on. Whether it's healing or breakthrough or for our ministries do grow or to get married or not to be married married or whatever the case might be to have kids to get your kids out of the house you know kids used to leave soon as they were eighteen they were out and on their own. Now there's still there are forty sometimes you got to pray him out of the House so whatever it is. You're waiting on God will either give you. What what you've asked for our something much better? I want you to get that before I go on. I don't want you to leave here. I mean I've given up a million times but the thing is God really won't let you give up. He'll he'll pick you back up and get you going so we're going to have to press us in the things and three things and it's a principle that we have to understand a little baby eaglet. Uh in the shell has got a little tooth on the end of its peak. They don't have that when they're adults but they've got this bill tooth on the end of their beak uh-huh and when it's time for them to be born they tack Peck Peck Peck. I mean it seems like they're pecking like forever trying trying to break this shell and occasionally somebody will think they need help them break it open forum but if you do that what happens. Sounds is they become weak and they never become what God intended them to be a cause that that work tacking that pressing pressing to come into life is what helps them get through life later on so be careful about making it too easy on your kids because sometimes they need to go through a few things so they're ready to go through some of the things I have to go through later on in life really gets hard now. Wishing wishing does nothing for us this way that wishing it does nothing for us we have to press. Wine is made by putting grapes through a press and whine awesome represents power in the Bible all for example new wine not put into all wine skins basically Maine's new power cannot be given to someone who is still hanging in on to old ways. Hey you got a great right future you have a great future. Your history is not your destiny. You have a great future but you will miss assist if you keep hanging onto the past and so we're GonNa talk some tonight about new beginnings but I I just gotTa do this little so introduction to this pressing thing because if you don't understand that is not all going to be easy and that sometimes you're going to have to wait and sometimes that you're gonNA need to press through things and that doesn't mean that God doesn't give us grace but grace doesn't mean that God does everything forrest while we we sit around and do nothing a man by grace through faith are you saved. God's grace is there for everyone but not everyone is saved because not everyone will believe the unto you even as you believe God always gives us apart. We're partners with God. Just imagine really just imagine how boring life would be if you could just sit back and just I do nothing but say a prayer and God just did everything for you and you never really had to do anything. God wants us to partner with him in seeing the thing has come to pass that he's provided for us. The Paris is like a magnet. It keeps trying to draw us back. Do you ever feel like you're the enemy is trying to draw you back into old habits and then I don't have to press out a bad things you gotta press send a good things. We'll take pieces. And the example. I grew up in an atmosphere where there was no peace to be honest. And I'm not exaggerating God. I didn't even know what piece was until I'm married. Dave everybody in my family was dysfunctional. We didn't know that word back then end but they were dysfunctional very dysfunctional. Of course my father was abusing me. My mother knew it was too frightened to do anything about it. My brother went in the marines when he was seventeen he came out addicted to drugs and ultimately ultimately ended up ending his own life because he just was so miserable and couldn't seem to get free and he was a guy that wouldn't press he wouldn't press three things. He wanted everybody to do everything for him and he we took him into our home he lived with us. I think about four years one time as long as you said. Get up and go to work. He'd get up and go to work but you didn't wake him up he'd lay there and not go to work and you can't you gotta do stuff for yourself. Don't even always be calling everybody asking them where a certain scripture is. Look it up. Do the work now if you do the work then you'll remember where things are so you're never going to have the future that got once you now have. If you think that all you you gotta do is just price Fart. And it's just GonNa fall in your lap. Some of you have got some amazing things out in front of you but I can to tell you the greater that God wants to use you the more the enemy will come against you. I have a little thing that I say new level new devil. Some of you are asking God for more of something. Well when you ask for more blessing you probably gotta get more opposition. I felt like God spoke to me the other morning and said I want you to be extra careful about your words because I'm going to open a wide door of opportunity and with it will come many adversaries say you don't just get opportunity opportunity. You also get adversaries and so when God wants to bring us up higher our flesh has to go down lower you see. I feel like I'm already pretty careful with my words but obviously not careful enough and you see the the Greater God is using you the the more he blesses you the more accountable we need to be. I don't suppose I don't suppose any of you could use to help with your mouth mouth. Matthew seven thirteen fourteen or a couple of really great scriptures. It says inner enriched through the narrow gate for why does the gate and spacious and broad is the way that leads away to destruction and many are those who are entering through it. I want to take enough time to understand this. He says I want you to go through the narrow gate. And you're going to see in. The next burst is says but the narrow gate is contracted by pressure as amplified translation and the way is straightened and compressed. That leads away to live and few there are who find it so it's easy to stay on the broad path. God told me once on the broad awed path. There's room for all your flesh Lee baggage. You can just take it all with you. You can just be karnal walk on the broadcast breath and lot of times people still get into heaven. You get into heaven because you believe not because you do everything perfect and we will never do everything perfect but I do believe that when a Christian remains karnal all of their life even though they may end up in heaven they will never take anybody with them. Maybe you know what I mean by that. They're witnessed won't be strong enough to take anybody with them and they're not going to enjoy life here because you know what we can't enjoy life breath walk in the flesh. We really don't our flesh tries to lie to US and tell us that we're gonNA enjoy more if we don't feel like doing but the truth is we're not gonNA enjoy more if we follow our failings it's going to lead us into a place of destruction.

Already low rates think dream it make it with squarespace. Alright. Welcome to a fire, you a comedy podcast. Being recorded in a low point in human history company podcast, we must record because we have to release it today, but none of us feel very funny, yeah. This kind of reminds me of the morning after trump episode where we're just like. Let's just talk about our feelings. And what the Hell! We're going through right now. Yeah, exactly only our feelings matter so much less in this specific scenario. If feels weird to get through emails, being like this chick swiped me right on tinder and I. Don't know I should hook up with her because she says she's an open. How pined for those problems to be. The problem's gotten good the those for those to be the real problems. It's fun because they're superficial. It seems like every three months. We wish we could just go back to three months earlier. Where things are, we thought was the lowest point, but didn't quite hit rock bottom yet. Yeah when it was just a pandemic. Hook, you remember when it was just corona virus, and not this mass oppression that we were actively fighting experiencing through every major American city. I guess the oppression and racism has always been there, so we re rewinding the clock. Three months wouldn't really fix that but I. Guess The the sort of boiling point that we're in feels kind of tough to live in. Yeah, you went to a protest you in Brooklyn. I Did I, I think. So Karnal was karnal went to one on Friday and Saturday and I was trying to like build up my mental fortitude because. Pandemic I'm. You? You're told to stay away from the crowds, but I was feeling really awful didn't know what else to do. And then I went to the protest on. Sunday and it was very nice. It was not what I had built up in my head. It wasn't a it was not scary at all. They're like everybody was keeping their distance. Everybody was very respectful. You're listening to passionate moving speeches and it was an entirely. I guess I wouldn't say Nice time because it's like very emotional, but it was. It was it was. It was a beautiful moment. I'd say that's right. Yeah, and then as these protests often do like one little bit of escalation from one party. Creates this negative feedback loop and spirals out of control in the new CDs, videos on twitter. Or TIKTOK wherever you're getting. All you see you like. There's a one car on fire and that's that. Dominates the news? Or even was a lot of Nice stuff and no cars on fire where I was. That's good or even more than the Carson fires. The looting like everybody seems the stories and the. Images and the videos that her must compelling, or is the looting destruction of property, which seems to be like the third most like. If you're ranking everything, you're thinking of like okay. The worst thing of all is the system that's been built up and governmental and systemic way to keep the white man on top, and then there's the protests violence which is awful, and then even below that I think is like destroying targets in whole foods and stuff like that, but for whatever reason. That's the thing that gets focused on the most it is. Weird. Yeah, it's an IT gets focused on the most, and it's like nitpicked like. Hey, this isn't helping the cause. This isn't helping your cause. This isn't going to zoom isn't going to change anything if you if you lose a target, but that's like not the main thing that's happening and it's also. I don't know net fine. Yeah I'm not. That's the stuff that concerns me. The least is how like these giants store chain stores are going to be affected by the broken windows. But yeah, and then you look at you, know the leaders of America and that's the thing that they focus on the most trump is not weighing in on whether or not there are systems in place that keep certain persons of color. At the bottom he's more like. Can you believe these thugs that are breaking the windows of a Bar? Let's fucking shoot I. It's easier to like your nitpicking the process or complaining about your complaining about like the. Afoul or something, but not about like the game itself. Yeah, I read a tweet that was like if I killed one of your family members I'd think I'd understand if you broke one of my windows like that. That part doesn't Piss me off. Yeah I. Mean this whole thing. This whole recent thing was set off by George Floyd being literally murdered on camera so I guess. That's what is the most alarming upsetting terrible thing about this and seeing like people walk out of Patagonia with surfboards doesn't quite register as much as that. Yeah, when and also like Brianna Taylor and. Very like. People murdered in the street, and like their murders weren't arrested somebody Briana was also just Moore murdered in her house. They kicked in the door and shot her so yeah. You can get the at leisure from target. is going to be okay. So what are we supposed to do? I I'm just reading as much as possible learning as much as possible trying to educate myself as much as possible I don't know there's no quick fix obviously to this thing that's been around since the beginning of America. Probably it's early in like our education. I guess like we can't come. Come on a podcast on Monday and like. Talk about how we think and feel. It's we've been sort of ignoring it or like. fussing around on the edges and for too long, so we have to dive in and I. Don't know anything yet. Yeah, but we wanted to I guess not ignore it, but also not spend the entire episode on it, so we figured let's. Talk about anything about it for. As long as we can, and then maybe we'll take a break and then come back and try to record a normal podcast, so people can pick and choose the experience that they want right now. Did they want? To listen to us. Sort of. tiptoe around and try to figure out what our thoughts are, and speak them in some eloquent manner, or do they just WanNa? Hear US answer questions. I can't even get close to eloquent, so if you WANNA skip ten minutes and talk about and talk to the Gameboy, let me know. SKIP SKIP SKIP. It's a weird moment because there's like. I think that we're used to just like. Try Basically. It's privileged position to to always think about moments and. And like these cultural touchstones to be like, how do I fit in? What does this mean for me? What do I do? How can I help, but it's like this moment. That's not about us. So there's like some sort of learning curve to just being like. Shut up, listen but also. An inclination to help and do something. But recognizing that you are on the top and benefiting from the system that's in place. That's hurting people. Yeah, it's like it's not about you, but it's about the system that you partake in. Actively into your benefit, so there's I. really have no fucking clue what to do. Tell me how to ruin it from the inside. It's weird to be like Oh. This whole thing is so messed up and it's making me feel really uncomfortable and sat like good. Yeah, that's fine. That's good. You can feel those things, and that's how I do feel. Especially since we are the same color, engender gender as the bad guys of the story, my life has been very very easy. So, what can we do? Donate your time? Donate Your Voice. Donate your cash. Yeah, donate your mind. You can donate your brain to science. Really entered the oral we found. That seems to have the most information options to donate. Your money is black. Lives Matters Dot Card Dot, Co Hurt Dispel C.. A. R., D., yeah, black lives! Matters plural dot C. A. R. R. D. DOT CO, yeah places to donate. You can donate to the victims to the protesters to the black owned businesses or other important places, so that's just. If. You don't have money to donate. You can spread. The link will tweet it. You can re tweet save every little helps That's right amplify. And then you should probably be listening to podcasts where two white men aren't sort of. Batting around their feelings to each other. Yeah, definitely I would say that if you came here to I. Mean we're just sort of in the same moment with you if you're confused in? uncomfortable. Definitely better podcast resources that can. Not Too much better than me and Amir can, and that were there with you and we'll listen to them to. And then beside all this, there's also the corona virus which is still raging on which is only going to be amplified by all the. Protesting in close proximity and people get thrown and buses and vans and. Prisons and it's all getting worse. It's bad and it's getting worse. Yeah, I mean. This really it like. It's crazy that took. All four years of trump's presidency to get to this point I guess we've been like on a simmer for a while, but like this. What we're in right now is what I feared. When we were talking about the trump election. Yeah Day after he was elected. We'll see if a photo of you see photos of the White House with his lights off and surrounded by fires. It's like okay. He is at the epicenter of this giant colossal. Meltdown. If you know. They put them in the panic room yesterday. Right? What's Nice? They should have left him there. Somebody who mentioned that like Joe Biden should just come out and start acting like president like give a state of the union like start talking and everyone just like we just cross fade to Joe, Biden and like start nor donald trump completely. That would be great. I, didn't they just left trump in the panic room like? Okay so, this is for your safety. It's like there's no. There's no food here. There's no water. That's fine early. You're morbidly obese. I. Assume you could survive for at least a few weeks. Just water alone closet. This is the panic room, but he I mean he's not even GonNa, he's not even saying anything. He's not even addressing anybody is. He's just sitting there like tweeting about. People stealing stuff from Walmart yeah. I woke up the other day and he just like. Let's see what let's see what's on twitter and the top tweet was him. tweeting China with an exclamation mark I'm like all right. Interesting Good Nice. He was like he was doing. He's he was trying to make Obama. Gate happened or something yeah. recusing President Obama of a crime. Okay Buddy that's like. I on the ball here. Rome is burning said I have to point to your last president. Say that he's GonNa Make Obama Gate look like small potatoes or whatever he said. No we're fucked and it's getting worse. Everything is bad and it's getting worse. What will be the next thing what will? What will be the next thing? Natural Disaster feel awkward. Do for one of those because you know. The, viruses bad, and then the cities are burning like the oppression has reached a boiling point now. Let's like throw in. A Tornado or hurricane. Force buyers that could be a could be one the. Summer months are coming up. Yeah! I'm with you natural disaster. That's the. That's that's the icing on the cake. That's like Oh. Maybe you know like in Sims when you can sort of create natural disasters to your cities. I feel like we're at. There's going to be a monster. That's how interesting a Godzilla like sorts giant crack in comes out of the sea in Miami and just sorta starts like pulling buildings down with its tentacles. That's what's next. Let's at least buildings are completely empty because of the disease. That's cool. That's good. and. So. We're in June three months from now. What September and of summer. September first and December. Do you think the world seems better or worse right now? Are we at the low point or are we? On our knees about to face plant onto rock bottom. Yeah, it's hard to it's it really all depends on what you consider? Rock like are these protests. Are. They quote unquote good for society because people have finally had enough, and then we're having difficult conversations, and then we're having the outbreak. Of anger like you can sit at. This is all a good thing. This is inspiring. Look, what's worse is. The few months before this where all this stuff was still happening, but everyone was silent. Early it's hard to find good and bad, but it's the fever breaking right now or is it. GETTING WORSE Or is it like pedal to the metal? We're not releasing just heading towards a disaster. How can things be get better I? Just don't just don't see a path unless like nothing can happen like the you can't dismantle. Centuries of.

What I was protesting as well because my toast was bird. I have no idea what was the worst thing that ever happened to me. There's also an election coming up.

We're back America still on fire, but we got some emails. That's right and let's make these second-half. Goofy! Oh sorry. Okay, that's all the energy I! I'll see a week. Here's a suggestion email. Not a question but Anna Rights Jake might likes Dr Do. Start Star Do Valley. What is that? Yeah I guess not. Yeah, she finds it like animal crossing without the stressful parts more focused on the farming and resources, and the people are actually humans and the animals don't talk in the time doesn't pass while you weren't playing, so you don't get yelled at by Nook after a couple days off that appleseed. Did you get yelled up I know? I didn't get yelled at, but I've heard that. People like one of the residents of my island was like I haven't seen you in awhile. Where if you've been kind of thing? But yeah, it's a little stressful. That time passes in real time. That was definitely a conscious choice to make. It seem like ever stop playing animal crossing hooks, not the boss of me. Playing. Oh, you stopped. Walnut Stop Stop but. Over the weekend I definitely. Sometime of Visit my island. Yeah I saw you at the protest holding up a Nintendo switch wondering if anyone had a charge. All right. Here's a actual question. People had this one is from a twenty two year old bisexual girl from the Philippines. Okay, we'll call her Philippa. I've been with my boyfriend for almost five years now, and he's literally perfect and does not cause me any problems. Our families are pretty close to my parents. Love Him. Here's my issue all this time alone and away from him. Because of quarantine has got me thinking that I haven't had my life explored like in the dating world, we met at Sophomore Year of college and we've been together ever. Ever since so I didn't get a chance to date around and explore New People. He's really committed to me and even talk about wanting to marry me and start a family with me, and that's great, all but I kind of don't want to settle down yet and I feel like if I don't get out of this relationship now we'll have a hard time getting out of it in the future. I mean she's been in it for five years. I've only ever been comfortable with my sexuality these past few years, and so I've never even been with a girl before basically to make a long story short. I want to start dating girls. But I'm scared. I might be throwing away. Good thing. Hope you guys answer this. Thanks, love you. Well. This is a weird time to be like I. Want to see other people that being said I can't see anybody else for a couple months to a year. But it is also true that like this moment right now is the easiest time you'll have getting out of your relationship at if you stay together through the quarantine. It's GonNa be harder because you've gone through another hardship and stay together, so your relationship is thus more fortified. A little further was like. Oh, we've been together for seven years. We can't break up now. There's like. It's not gonNA get easier to break up. It only gets harder so if you're feeling like you want to break up, you should do it right now. Yeah. But then you can't. What are you GonNa? Are you going to explore your? Bisexual side of dating women for the first time ever. You can't leave your house for very often. You can do virtually for for a time until until you're ready to start going on dates irl. It builds high school. It'd be an interesting time to be single, but like you could meet people on the APPs Chat Chat. See who you like, and then do a socially distant date. Were you gonNA walk with a mask? It's kind of. Like! I think it'd be happy to go on a date. Wearing a Basque pressure is pretty low. You don't have to like first impression. They won't see your face. You can have a zip. You can have bad breath. which was the hardest part for me dating? oftentimes, my gums and plaque would reek of shit. That's it's hard to say like stay six feet away from me when we're meeting up for the first time, and it's hard to say like I actually don't smell like tuna. I'm leading in for a kiss and I wreak I- Rica Fish. Yeah. Why not just brush your teeth. That's true I feel like I. Shoulda re written into the podcast I just got a whiff of your breath I don't know how over zoom. But upgraded just wilted. Green steam came out of my mouth. You have greasy breath. Speaking of Greasy check out the had gone. podcast me you. Jeff Riley Morita we're just hanging out once a week. A greasy. That's Greasy pod. Things get very greasy. Silly over there, so you need an extra dose of silliness. We recorded an episode last week before we were. Depressed so. Or only mildly depressed. That'd be a good release. Again every you always wish you can rewind time to two months. Previous I can't wait to see what happens in. Early August to September that makes pine for this day. Insane cannot imagine cannot imagine sure it will happen off I would also say as you're breaking up with your boyfriend. Tell him exactly why tell them everything you told us And and he might have some insight as well. Maybe he'll be cool with an open relationship like. Girls might not be a bad thing. Yeah, yeah, I'll get. If, he's been chill so far you may. He might. He might continue that trend. Yeah and a Lotta. Guys are less threatened by women. You like you're asking to date another guy you're like. I wanted to explore my female sexuality and date females. He might be more open to it. Just like I want to aid that dude versus you. Right here's another one. Sounds pretty funny. Hey, guys will call this guy Reginald, a hey, guys. I have a question about Cubes Rights Reginald. when I started dating my Jeff I noticed. She has an interesting trim pattern. She doesn't shave the side of her business because she has sensitive skin, which makes sense. She said she trims it with. Scissors sometimes sounds dangerous, but adventure a guest. That doesn't happen too often. I don't really like getting a mouthful of Bush every time I go down on her. If I bought a nice pup- trimmer, would it be totally out of line that to suggest she try it, too? If it helps. I'm planning on proposing soon. I have a ring everything. Thank you. Propose I. She might be changing her mind. If you say you get down on one knee with Shurmur we'll use. Shave yourself and marry me. About full of cubes. God. So propose and then. What's the most gentlest way to bring up the idea that? He would prefer if the pupils weren't as bushy on the underside, despite the fact that you sensitive skin. Yeah, I, just think you can't I just think. I don't know I. Don't think he can I think it's impossible you play I. do even if you're engaged to have an open honest conversation about pubic hair if you're coming. Yeah I think when you're married. There's going to be a lot less puke maintenance. Wasn't happening during the courtship phase. It's not going to start now. What about the ion say ship of it all? You know you're you're you're obligated to marry? Still? Obviously, it's not a real contract, but it's a social one, and you guys can talk about the fringe details like pubic hair, personal hygiene things of that nature and yeah, maybe something will come up that she can hopefully potentially may be if she's interested and wants to help you go down on her to trim the underside of her. Situation. I think all you can do. And this is really like I i. think you. My true advice is to just get used to having cubes in your mouth, and that's fine. That's that's the that's someone you love I. Have No problem having pews in my mouth. Strangers never bothered me. You know it's by even if it was in my soup like. You like licking the vagina. Just enjoy everything that comes with it whether it's not that's. It's all it's all positive. Okay, but if you really if you feel like. If you feel like. You, really really can't stand it then I think the only measure you can take is start having a meticulous pup- grooming ritual for yourself lead by example. Don't ask your fiance to do anything. You aren't doing yourself pup-. Wise. Maybe, maybe she'll be inspired. Maybe she'll see your. That'd it'd be like damn that is. That's a neat line. How did you get that? They're also uniform. Thanks rigged. How'd you get the in vicious triangle on top of your pene? Is that zero fade from year, Dole. Zero fade a comb over. Mons, pubis has a bald spot. All right one last question. Sure. Another lady from Vancouver soon will call her. Can that can you tell that word drained creatively? That were coming up with names that just sort of rhyme with where these people are. Yeah that's that's on us. Again, apologize low energy bad effort from us, but here we are doing our best winter. Jeb in sleepy, Joe or host. I'm GONNA take off. How funny is it? The trump's nickname for Joe Biden is sleepy Joe when last election he couldn't come up with that adjective sleepy for someone. He called Low Energy Jeb. So he should've used. You're saying he should have. He should've waited on low energy. Well. It should not have been sleepy job like. Low Insane that nickname. Was Four syllables long low energy JEB and then he was like. Oh, it's so much faster. Say Sleepy, sleepy Joe. That's right. Anyhow, all right. Have you. Resign yourself to the idea that trump might. Win To selection November like we'll just Have another four to forty years of this guy. I GUESS NO I. Have Not! It's I can't accept it. All right Canadia rights, longtime listener, and you guys have got me through multiple unrequited loves. Yeah, not even breakups. Lol! Glad I got to shake Amir's hand in Vancouver and twenty eighteen before it was illegal I. Swear it wasn't me that gave you the flu, so hear me out and. Baby boomers, the name for the next generation of people born after cove it, yea! Genius thoughts I'll see myself out. You're welcome. So instead of baby boomers this next generation of people. Are GonNA. Be called baby boomers. That's pretty solid. The weird thing to me I guess. Is that like calling someone Zimmer because they were born during zoom? Like while other people were zooming. Like. Isn't it weird because? It, it implies that they are the ones that use zoom all the time, but really it was their parents that we're using zoom all the time. Yeah yeah, but baby boomers are because the parents were fucking after the war, and there was a boom rabies. Yeah, they called it the baby boom. So you're like I'm a baby boomer. So it more be like what is. I get the spirit of this and I think it's not bad at all I. think it's pretty solid. You'll allow baby boomers. Yeah. I would. Want to feel old. This baby boomers four months. Will that next generation be called I. Don't know what's what are where millennials there's like the silent generation baby-boomer Gen y Gen Z.. That's the young generation right now. Yeah, and who comes up with the names of it. They don't. They haven't gotten their moniker. I don't know if you're out there. Let me I'm going to Google different names of the generations generation naming. Naming Systems and is it just an American thing I? Don't know that like you're not. Are you a baby boomer? If you're born during that time, but in like London, AB, because it was all about the World War all right well. There's a giant kapiti on generation so I. I don't think it's the right kind. We'll you in another two weeks. I guess. I've got well I. have some other more important reading to do to be honest now you should really get to the bottom of why they're called. Gen X.. Seeing that now. Post millennials. That's what this one next one that's called. Post millennials headed by wind post? Malone was born everybody after post. Malone is a post Maloney. All Okay Zumur. Okay consumer. I don't know if I trust the idea or I. Don't know if I liked the idea of a generation being named after a product though that's free advertising for zoom that bumped me a little bit to actually it is crazy. How much zoom is killing it? Yeah, Jesus Christ. This is like even Google can't get in there. No I heard of this technology like the. The day after the pandemic I think right, yeah, and by that time it was already like a publicly traded company, so it had to have been around for years and years, and we just like just like look I zoom in your email where we on zoom call three years ago and just didn't realize like a weird tech like struggling startup. It's like and for. A year or two? I think I like recorded podcasts with you. FACETIME and with Murph. Emily and caldwell on like Google hangouts. It was so lucky and bad. Yeah, the big problem is like when people are talking at once. How does the software handle that because some? Like some software, it's like lettuce, silence, everybody and you can't hear anything. Some people let the louder person talk in the silence, the other person some people at both at the same time. Yes, zoom does a pretty solid job of blending that area so like even when three people are talking over each other. You hear everyone I don't. Yeah I think I've noticed that like the loudest person is the clearest, and then you can, you can still hear. The other people looks like our first zoom. Call was actually in late October. Wow, so we were using it relatively recently, but still before the pandemic. Yeah we did it for. A head gum. Company, wide meetings interesting stuff. Oh yeah when all of New, York and all of L. A. were in the same room. We only need to us. With, right. Weird time of innocence time of Zoo All right. Well we definitely talked for thirty to forty minutes. Which is pretty good. All things considered. Yeah, we got it out. We I mean late low energy bad. But can you blame us for? Honestly, it's your problem. If you're not happy with it like that's on you, I didn't do anything wrong. Except some. All right for more questions and answers. And theme Song Senator If I. Were you show at gmail.com? With an open with the theme song, but we did get a good one from Vicky this week, so maybe we can close with it Vicky. Such, shout out her boyfriend. Let me look her boyfriend's name.

The Mind of Christ
"Welcome to the PODCAST Marinov ministries. I'm Rick Frank Senior Pastor Mironov and I pray you'll be blessed by today's message. You can access all of our church information by going to our website at www dot. M. Church DOT COM or an all social media by searching at church and now be blessed by listening to today's message. Amen praise the Lord. God is so good. Isn't he so good to see all of you here today? In the House of the Lord. We'RE GONNA turn to the word of God today and I am reading from the Book of Philippians Chapter Number Two verse five one small versus scripture but an important one. And you know. I've spent a several sermons here over the past several weeks Basically telling us what's wrong with us. Our Flesh Lee nature are karnal minds. And you know what's in fact? I think I preached one message and I talked about what's wrong with us. What's wrong with religion and what's right with God and so I spent a lot of time talking about our fallen. Nature are issues. The things that we struggle with today I wanNA talk about how to overcome being over comer and I'm reading from Philippians chapter two verse five. The Apostle Paul wrote here and he said let this mind be in you. What mind the mind which was also in Christ Jesus? Jesus wants to put his mind. His thoughts his understanding was his feelings about things in us. Can you say men so that it no longer becomes something that we can or cannot do but something we do not or do want to? Do you follow me. Many people try to live. For God's saying I want that but I can't have that when Jesus wants you to not want it understand. So let's pray together as we talk today about this subject that I've entitled simply the mind of Christ. Jesus we love you. Thank you for blessings in your goodness. You are great and great to be praised and I'm asking for your divine anointing to be upon me today. The touch these lips of Clay Lord. I pray that you'll help me to use my faculties and my ability to express accurately the feelings in the ideas that you've put in my mind and heart touch our lives Lord. God this is an awesome awesome place. We're in right now. The of God and so I pray that you will speak to US Open. Our is our understanding to the great treasures that you have for every one of us. I pray in Jesus name and everyone said Amen. God bless you may be seated. How about we give Jesus? One more hand clap appraised together as we love him and honor him thank you. Jesus thank you. Jesus thank you. Jesus raise the Lord. All of us have a calling on our lives. Every person that is born that God puts the breath of life in. He has a purpose for your life is calling upon you. You are called to do a work for God our life in Jesus begins when Jesus directly interfaces with us and that's why it's so important that we are involved in a spirit filled church because religion doesn't cut it and what I mean by that is going through. Motions does not get the transformation job done that. The moving of God's spirit can and does do in us for us and through US and so he interfaces with us and with our minds for the sole purpose of revealing himself to us in a way that we did not know him before and that we cannot know him through books through study. Although all of these things are good God wants to interface with us and reveal himself to us in a supernatural way. That takes a supernatural demonstration of his spirit. And that's why it's so important when we do come to the House of God that we partake of the practice of worship and praise. Because that's what the Bible says his spirit inhabits. We need him. God does not just want to tell you what his ways are. He wants to reveal his ways to you and make them your ways. Also you understand what I'm saying. He doesn't WanNa tell you his ways and have you sit back and say. Let me figure out how I can accomplish that. He wants to reveal his ways to you so that they become your ways and so that as you live for God. You're just living your life because your life is filled with his ways making sense and so he wants his ways his purpose plans his mind his attitude his perspectives his character. His love is powers. Mercy His forgiveness and any other attribute you can think of that belongs to God. He wants those things to not just be revealed to you but become you so that. Deuteronomy chapter thirty can be fulfilled. You'll how many of you know what Deuteronomy Chapter Thirty is all about. I highlight I'm not gonna read them all like I read the whole chapter although I was tempted to but I thought you might get bored zone if I started just reading reading the Bible there are some people who can read and they just captivate you look. I don't think I'm one of them but I do want to point out a few things because Deuteronomy is a very important chapter to us as Christians. Bible tells us that it'll come to pass that blessings and the curse which I have set before you blessing and there's cursing before every one of us that before every one of us is the option of blessings or the options of cursing and the Bible said that God wants us to return to the Lord our God and August voice says that the Lord will bring you back from your captivity. How many of you understood you're captive to sin. Many of you understood. Sin was imprisoning you. He wants to you from that. Goes on to say that the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants to love the Lord with all your heart with all your soul that you may live. How many of you really want to get to the place where you love the Lord with all your heart with all your saw? God help me to love you that way. Listen to this. Listen to this verse nine. And the Lord again will rejoice over you for good as he rejoiced over. Your father's magic rejoicing over us the way he rejoiced over his apostles. If you obey the voice of the larger God keep his commandments. Statutes which are written in this book of the law. And if you turn to the Lord Your Goggle all your heart with all your soul for this commandment which I command you. Today is not too mysterious for you. That's good a lot of people. Think I just I just don't get all this stuff. I read the Bible. I don't understand it at the spear moving. I don't get it. He doesn't want it to be so complicated for you that you don't get it that you don't understand it. He said nor is it far off. It's not up in heaven so that you should say who will ascend to heaven and bring it to us that we may hear it and do it. Jank all I could do you ever have has the thought ever gone through your mind. I just can't live that life. I just don't know if I'm ever going to really get a hold of it. That's not what he wants for you. He wants you to have it to understand it to see it to live it and to love it. He said it's it's not beyond the C. You would say who will go over the sea and bring it to us that we may hear it and do it. I'm reading the Old Testament stuff by the way but the word is very near you in your mouth. It's in your heart so that you can live it in your heart to that you can do it. It's a wonderful understanding. It's an understanding of. I'm not doing it because he said so. I'm doing it because it's in my heart to do it. I don't live like this because someone said I have to. I lived like this because it's in my heart to live like this. Jesus transformed me. He made me a new creature. I don't WanNa do those things anymore. But preached a message years ago. Maybe a reprieve someday. There's an if and in the Bible for you if your heart turns away so that you don't hear your drawn away and you worship other gods serve them. I announced today that you shall perish. You shall not longer days in the land which you cross over to Jordan Gwen and possess I call heaven and earth as a witness against you today that I have set before you life and death blessing and cursing therefore choose life that both you and your descendants may live see people love God so they get to those parts. Those are the parts people have a hard time with. Live it or else they feel like God's doing live this or I'm going to rain down on you so much terror. You won't know what happened to you and so we end up trying to serve. God Out of fear and we're afraid of what he will do us if we don't live right. And that is the farthest thing from what the goddess understand that it is when he says you'll be cursed with a curse he's not saying. I'm GonNa Curse you he's saying here's the problem. Listen to let me put it this way. If my children grow up in my house and they live in my home when they live according to my ways I pay for their meals. I buy their clothes. I take care of him. I bring him to the doctor when they're sick and they say I'm done with new. I'm leaving going out in the streets. I don't think the streets are gonNA treat you the way I treat you. When you're sick I don't think the hoodlums on the street are GonNa make sure you get to the doctor. Bill gets paid. I don't think they're going to do that for you. Daddy won't it's that you chose someone else to trust. And that's what God is. Say we think gotta serve him or he'll curse me no he won't this world will curse you. It's not God sin is what courses you not. God you got problems in your life because a sin not because God said okay. I'M GONNA punish you now. He'll chastise us when we're in his kingdom but that's just to keep a straight but you walk away from God. It's not God causing your life to go up. Turn upside down. It's the world you chose to serve. Choose well shoes. Jesus praise God. God does not curse if we reject them. How often does God get blamed for? What the devil does problem that people find when they try to come to? God and they start reading in the Bible and they feel the spirit of the Lord and the transformation they see the transform lives and they realized that their life isn't necessarily transform. How many of you still struggle with things that you know are not pleasing to God? I'M NOT GONNA ask you to raise your hand. I would dare say we will raise our hand. We struggle with things that we know. We're not pleasing to God. We've talked about that in the past. I'm not wanting to talk about that today as much as I want to. Talk about what we can do about it and how it all works because the problem is is that often or too many times people come into the presence of the Lord and they even get baptized in Jesus name and even get filled with the holy ghost and still they struggled. It's because they're not understanding. What baptism in the Holy Ghost does for us? And I WANNA explain that real quick because the Bible the reason that we struggle sometimes and the reason we fight sometimes is because we are still relying depending upon an old mindset that old mind and what we need to have is a new mind a different mind a transformed mind but this mind that was in. Christ the Bible said being you and sometimes we lean on our own understanding even though we've been baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost. We still tend to try to lean to our own understanding and with the Bible wants us to do is stop leaning to our own understanding and let the mind that was in Christ beaten us to begin to guide US and lead us. Do you understand what I'm saying and I'll give you an example when I first came into this as you know I was. I had a very serious drugs and drinking problem and by the time I was eighteen years old I was an alcoholic. Came to church is an alcoholic. In fact I. I told the man that asked me to come to church. I was drunk when he asked me to come so I said yes when I came I was drunk and when I got baptized drunk. How's that sound? How many of you would wonder what I'm doing if I'm baptize. Some guy showed up as drunk and I'm back there baptize bushes. Think of that. Would you think passion? You GotTa let this Guy. Works and things though we tell you something. I WENT DOWN DRUNK. I came up revived. You've heard me say this many times. I gotta say it one more time because there's people sitting in this auditorium that were in that church that day when I walk through the back door long hair smoking and drinking drugs and alcohol and we're sitting in the pews and I don't know maybe I sat down next to you. Listen to me. I saved all the time. I want to take this opportunity to say it again. When the drunken bomb walks through those back doors and they will come because God loves centers. And they sreak their cigarettes and their drunkenness. And they're having taken a bath in a week and they sit down next to you. You better treat them nicely. Because you don't know God's plans they may be your pastor one day just saying I look out here. I see people sister judy sister Suzanne. They were they were in that. Connie and you guys were in that church when I showed up. And they're still sitting see. They trust the transforming power of God. Because they're sitting here listening to me preach. Now you need a new mind. You don't need a controlled mind. That's what we sometimes try to do. We try to take our mind and control it and you don't need a controlled. Mind your mind to flesh in your heart of flesh is no good. You need a renewed mind. You need the mind of Christ put in you because when I came to church and nobody ever told me that I can't drink anymore. I got baptized. I didn't come out of the water. The preacher say no more drinking. Now you're a Christian you keep drinking God's GonNa Kirsch and tell me that I got baptized. I walked out the door my long hair dripping wet still. I went to work. I carried on as normal. I drank as normal. I did my normal things until one day wasn't too long on Burma. Exactly how long was it wasn't too long? I went down to the Barroom at my lunchtime. And what I would do is go to the bar. I would drink two draft beers with my lunch. I would bring a six pack back with me and I would feel. I worked at a bottling. Your Soda Bottling Plant and I would feel Ginger Ale cans up with beer and I would sit at my machine all after drinking beer. They thought I was drinking ginger Ale every day. That's how bad I was and I remember the last day I regret to this day. 'cause remember the last ship of. Beer I took. I had a new mind now. God pill filled me with his Holy Spirit. He gave me the Holy Ghost he Bapti. I got baptized in Jesus name. He washed my sins away. I did not know what was right and what was wrong but my new mind started telling me what was right and what was wrong and I sat down that day. I can remember as clear as day. I remember the seat I was sitting in a could bring it to the place and show you the SPA at the bar. I was sitting. I would order hamburgers and two draft beers. I would go so the beers my six pack and bring it back to work and Philip said Ginger Ale and I can remember sitting there. I drank the first draft beer. Eight my hamburgers. I got to the second draft beer. It was half gone. I got halfway through it when it dawned on me. I'm not really enjoying this. I am forcing myself to do this out of habit. I don't like this anymore. I put the half glass down and walked away and have not touched a drop of alcohol since that day. And if you're clapping your hands that's great but do it for Jesus put a new mind in me and that's what a new mine does for us. That's why we need a new mind the three sing the song those things I used to do. I don't do anymore. Why because I'm not that person anymore. He put a new mind in me. We need to have a new mind. We need the laws of God in our minds so that they become us and not. We are the old man trying to live a new life. You see the difference. You understand the difference so the most important thing is that God himself does this for us when he miraculously joins his mind into ours. That's his that's his desire. He doesn't want to control. You suppress you so that you live against your will his way. He wants to change you so that his way is your way and your way is his way. You understand the difference. Praise God take a look at Zeke. You'll because this is the prophecy that tells us how this happens. Zeki chapter thirty six as this. I will give you a new heart. Not Awesome and I'M GONNA put a new spirit within you know awesome. I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and I'm going to give you a heart of flesh and I'm GonNa put my spirit within you and cause you to walk in my statues and be careful to obey my rules now. That's not a warning better. Be careful obey my rules. That's not what that saying. It's saying that you will want to be careful to always do things that please him. Because that's who you are now stand you see you go downtown to the to the AA meetings and they will help you control who you are. Jesus wants to change who you are. Does this by putting his spirit in us? I think one of the greatest tragedies in Christianity today in our days the lack of understanding where the Holy Spirit is concerned where the Holy Ghost is. Because people don't understand it they don't comprehend the Holy Ghost they don't know what being filled with the Holy Ghost is they don't even know if they have the holy ghost or not. Some people think they have. They don't some people. I don't know some people. Just don't get it. In fact I did a Google search. Just had a curiosity. I do things like this out of curiosity. I did a Google search and I typed in how to be filled with the Holy Ghost. Now if you want to be confused type that in and read the replies of how to be filled with the Holy Ghost. Google does not have the answers to everything. Here's what I came up with. I wrote down. I just kept going finally. I can't just put all that up. You'll be bored but I found this. These are the prominent ones that I set your mind on spiritual things. That's good to do but I don't know that that makes you filled with the Holy Spirit. One said you must drink of the spirit. Okay does it come in a bottle? How do I drink of the spirit? Would you know how to be filled with the Holy Ghost? If you read that drinking make lead I. I don't know only list. Only our obedience to God's commands allows the spirit freedom to work within us because we are still infected with sin. It is impossible to be filled with the spirit all the time. You the Holy Ghost today and I might not have it tomorrow. It is. This is what they said. It is impossible to be filled with the Holy Spirit all the time. Do I have it now or not? I went to a habit. I must have it now. I feel good. You must have had the Holy Ghost these past couple of weeks that you were struggling there. I'm joking I'm just trying to show you. How much do lack of understanding Christi that Christian world has when it comes to the Holy Ghost? You're not filled with all the time when we sin we should immediately confess to. God? That's true and I've I've preached all that on eatery preach that confess it to God renew our commitment to be filled with the spirit again so every time I do something wrong. The spirit leaves me. God forbid I got a liberal life like that because now I'm depended upon my good works to keep got around number four. Here's another one. I'm going to more just. You can idea how confusing is out there? The filling of the Holy Spirit is only for those Christians who want to be filled although he dwells within all Christians. Fill them just because he's presence you got. I didn't get it either number five and I'm going to end with this one. The crucial question is still how. Yeah so far. That's God's part is clear he will fill us. But what is our part here are some practical aspects to consider we must be Christ centered. That's a good thing to be. We must read the scripture. That's good to do. We must be submissive. That's good to be and we must be confident. Those are all good things so if I'm Christ centered reading scripture submissive incompetent does that mean I'm filled with the Holy Spirit I don't know here's a thought just thought. Why don't we look and see what the Bible says? Just thought of crazy thought. Because here's what the Bible says repent and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. How do I know I have always spirit? Have you been baptize in? Jesus name yet for the remission of your sense for the promise that you will be filled with the spirit if you're baptize in Jesus name and repented your sands is to you to your children to all that are far off. We're not talking about distance here. We're talking about time because we're going generational you the next generation your children and then all of those that are far of that means you and me my friend. I need to preach repentance and baptism in the name of Jesus Christ author emission of your sins praise. God How many of you gotTa Hurry? I'm running out of time already. But how many of you are familiar with the podcast called stuff? You should know anybody. Listen to the podcast stuff. You should know I listened to it from time to get together and they just research whatever and they talk about it. They did stuff. You should know it's not all stuff you should know some of it. I don't I can look at the title of some things bother but everyone's while glance through see if they've got something that looks interesting being guess what they had as their subject title just a couple of weeks ago you ready for this one and obviously. I had to listen to their subject. Title was stuff you should know podcast and it was. Why are pentecostals growing so rapidly? I thought I thought I've got listeners. Because what they do is they. They're not. They're not pentecostals themselves. At all buddies stretching the imagination they don't claim to be the only one of them claims to be a I think he's a methodist whatever at any rate they don't know anything about pentecost except that statistics say it is the fastest growing segment of Christianity in the world today. And so because of that they thought this was a subject matter that they should discuss on their podcast stuff. You should know so here was some of the things that they brought out. As I said they brought out that it's the fastest growing segment and Christianity. They talked about the star at Zoo's a street if you don't know about US Zoos Street do a. Google search on Zoos Street. There's Zoos Street revival. That's what they see. I was born out of the Mironov part of the United Pentecostal Church International. Who was born in that Zuzu Street revival and they point out that the zoos revival they talked about William Seymour who started it and they brought out and listen to this. Do you realize that? The Zoos Street revival had three services a day seven days a week for years for years. They held three services a day. Seven days there's no excuse for missing church three services seven days a week the buyer not the Bible. The history tells us they began speaking with other tongues as the spirit of God fell upon that work on the stuff. You should know podcast. They talked about pentecost in acts chapter two. They talked about the apostles being filled with the Holy Spirit. Speak this is on a mainstream podcast of stuff you should know. They're talking about pentecost. They talked about speaking in tongues. They talked about non pentecostal Christians thinking that pentecostal Christians who speak in tongues are weird and yet it was completely biblical. It's not weird it's biblical and some of the things that brought out. I thought wow this is. This is phenomenal. In nineteen eighty. Six percent of Christians were pentecostal. Nine thousand nine hundred six percent of everybody that call themselves Christian pentecostal in Twenty fifteen twenty five percent of people who say they're Christians are pentecostals speaking in tongues twenty-five percent that means one out of every four. Christians speaks in tongues that amazing. It's amazing and then. They said this when they added up the numbers of people who are Christians speaking in tongues they. They gave the statistic that not one in four Christians but one in twelve human beings is a pentecostal one in twelve. Human beings worldwide are pentecostal speaking in tongues. Now I'm not saying in Schenectady. Every twelve person you meet as a pentecostal because their pockets in the world in fact they talked about how the the global south and we're not talking about South America southern United States. We're talking about the global. South pentecost is booming in the Global South. It is just after missionaries are having revivals like unbelie- Southern Africa South America. Pentecost is booming. And that's a tr- helps a tribute to the fact that one out of every twelve person and it humid. Human is a stung. Speaking pentecostal. Amazing is that it's a global movement. It's the fastest segment growing in Chris growing faster and Christianity than any other aspect of Christianity. And the reason they find people love it so much is because when you come to a pentecostal church you can personally interact with God's spirit and it does not have to go through another man. I and these guys even said they're not pentecostal. One of them said I went to a pentecostal funeral. And he said how interesting it was. He said because everybody's just doing their own thing worshiping talking to Jesus themselves and they're at a funeral he said. I just sat back in amazement and watch. These people are connecting directly with God not through a man. That's what Jesus wants to do is have a relationship with you. Personally Louis. Praise God and then they quoted an article Listen here's another statistic. I thought was the political center pentecostal. Ism I'm not sure what that is. I haven't researched it. But they called. It estimates that thirty five thousand people are converting to Pentecostal ISM every day. My friend were part of the right movement. Some of us have been doing this a long time when it was frowned. Upon in. If you're wondering whether you should be a pentecostal or not get on board now because the ship is sailing my friend and then there was an article written. They quoted the article title. And I'M GONNA finish this part with this and I'm going to move on quickly here. They finish this by saying the article was titled Think Christianity Is Dying No Christianity shifting to pentecostal. That was the article that was ready. Second Corinthians three eighteen we all with unveiled face beholding the glory of the Lord are being transformed into the same image. I don't not drink because I can't I don't drink because I've been transformed and the new me doesn't like it anymore and I appreciate the time you need to allow the Holy Ghost to move in you and lead you and guide you whether you start feeling that feeling of don't do this anymore. Don't act like dress like this anymore. Don't talk like that anymore. Who LISTEN TO IT? Because it's inside of you creating the new it's not. It's not a list of do's and don'ts don't know this and this is that's mortal. It's I don't do anymore because I don't WanNa do it anymore. I've got a new mind in a praise. God Romans Chapter Twelve. Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed. How by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God you see. He is transferring his thoughts his ideas his concepts his his his feelings about the way this world is he wants to transfer that into you so that you begin to see it the way he sees it and the things that your flesh once loved you no longer love it and the things you crave you no longer crave it because you gotta put a new mind in you this why. It's important that we prayed. Come to church and worship revives that new mind. Second Corinthians five seventeen the Bible says this therefore if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation. The old things aren't under control. The Bible says the old things have passed away but they didn't just pass away and you walk walk through life as an empty vessel. It says the old things pass away and now all things have become knew my friend. If you've never spoken in tongues and you've let this world or the quote unquote religious world. Make you think it's weird? It's it's on the fringe. Nothing could be further from the truth. It was what God gave us. If you'll repent of your sins if you've never been baptized in Jesus name. That's the way the apostles did it. They didn't do it in the titles father son and Holy Ghost. But that's what Jesus said to do. Exactly that's why the apostles did it in Jesus name because Jesus said to baptize them. How in the name of the father of the son and the Holy Ghost. So if you're going to obey that verse you have to know what the name of the father and of the son and of the Holy Ghost is and if you're not sure you're right just look at the ones. He told that too and see how they did it. Because you will not find a baptism anywhere in the entirety of the scriptures. That was not administered in the name of Jesus Christ by the Apostle Peter by fill up by Paul every single one of them baptized exclusively in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sense because they knew the name of the father was Jesus. I've come in my father's name. He said the name of the Sun Is Jesus. You call his name. Jesus for say people from their sins and the name of the Holy Ghost is Jesus but comfortable. Come in my name. Jesus said it's Jesus that's why we re baptized people. My good friend. Ken is after Christine over here. Christine Smith come into our life group. He wanted me to come over to fill the tank up the other night after life group. We're going to get her baptize. He said this is why Christine this is. Why because many of us have been baptized? Many of as as infants were baptized. I shouldn't say that we were not baptized if you were an infant if you say you about that you did not get baptized isn't it? Might be just on a little bit longer. They did they baptize me as an infant. No they did not. They sprinkled water on your forehead. That is not baptism that is sprinkling baptism means to plunge. To put under there is no baptizing hoping baptizing infants. Don't get them underwater. Plus the Bible teaches us that if we'RE GOING TO GET BAPTIZED. We need to repent first. How can a child Huck? Infant even repent. And what do they need to repent of? We need to repent first and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for what for the remission of our sins and then you shall everyone say show shall be filled with the gift of the Holy Ghost. It's not a matter of drinking it. It's not a matter of studying art enough. It's it's a matter of obeying the scriptures repent baptize and led. God fill you with the Holy Ghost and put a new mind in you a new heart in you and make you a new creature. Let's stand together. Let's stand together. This altar is open if you want to come to me and said pastor. I've never been baptize in Jesus name. We can get that done. If you WANNA come and say I don't know anything about speaking talks. We can get that done to because Jesus wants you to have his full true say man. The Altar is open. Jesus wants to put his mind in you. Come to the altar and say Lord give me your mind thank you for listening to the MARATHA ministries podcast. If this message talks to you please.

Predicting Healthcare Costs and Improving Quality of Care with Chris DeRienzo
"Welcome to the outcomes rocket podcast where we inspire collaborative thinking improved outcomes and business success with today's most successful and inspiring healthcare leaders and influencers and now your host so Marquez welcome back to the podcast everybody today. I have a guest that you guys have met before the outstanding Dr Chris Dairy Enzo. He's a chief medical officer at Karnal analytics as the chief medical officer there he leads the company's clinical enterprise helping connect world class data science to better care sooner for patients employees and plan members across the nation. He's been recognized by modern healthcare in twenty eighteen as one of the up incomers under forty and Bekker's as one of healthcare's rising stars Chris has published and presented internationally on leveraging analytics addicts to drive continuous improvement implementing data science and health care and the intersection of humanity and technology. He's also the author of tiny medicine one doctors actors biggest lessons from his smallest patients prior to joining cardinal he served as an and one thing that I that I do WanNa <hes> clarify here cardiac cardinal health health it is cardinal analytics prior to that. He served as chief quality officer for mission health. which if you guys haven't had a chance to listen to that interview type in in mission help in the search bar at about health? You'll you'll hear that amazing interview where we talked about value based care among other things mission health is a two billion dollar integrated delivery system in Asheville North Carolina there he practised both pediatrics and neonatologist. He completed his M._D. and masters. Here's in public policy in postgraduate medical training at Duke University. He is still a practicing neonatologist in the mission children's Nick you follow up clinic and volunteer tear has a member of the mercy health or Quality Committee and the Y._M._C._a.. Blue Ridge Assembly board of Directors Nationally Dairy Enzo was the fourth medical student and elected and re elected to serve on the board of trustees and appointed by the North Carolina Secretary of Health and Human Services in two thousand eighteen to serve on on the Medical Care Advisory Committee says you all can see here Chris vary involved clinically as well as in business now and I'm really excited to dive into his new you track at cardinal analytics and hear the latest in his thoughts and work so Chris <hes> just want to extend a very warm welcome to you as always thank you for for such incredible credible introduction. It's a pleasure to be back on your show yeah it's. I'm glad you're here now. You're on the industry side so just to kick it off. I like to hear why oh I you you took the switch and how things are going. You got it so I I had a tremendous team at mission and really enjoyed my role in the role. I served there. <hes> most recently I covered a quality patient safety patient experience a pop health and then analytics and one of the things I was most excited about where the things that we were beginning to do admission that crossed the intersection there of a population health so our value base care and risk based contracting as we covered a little bit in our last last time on the podcast and some of the real emerging data science trends and specifically in machine learning I within the mission team I was fortunate to work with a couple of really bright right data scientists and they were beginning to show what we could do to drive pop health outcomes of by leveraging newer technologies that are enabled and so several months ago ago I got a tap on the shoulder from the folks at cardinal who said hey you know this this really something you're passionate about. Why don't you consider joining us and getting to do that not just the million people of Western North Carolina but for a three hundred and fifty million people nationwide and so that's really what what sparked the interest and <hes> we'll we'll talk a little bit about the cardinal team and what we do and I think once you hear that the switch will become clear now? That's really really great. Chris and you know I applaud you for the switch. It's not easy to go from you know provider working as a caregiver to industry but you saw the bigger picture so to speak and I applaud you for that so Chris. What would you say now that you're working on? The work that you're working is a hot topic that needs to be on health leaders agenda and how is your organization Karnal analytics tackling it yeah. It's a as always follow a great question. I think one of the major challenges facing Health Tresin as an industry today is grappling with the intersection of technology and humanity and especially as our data science development pathways offered for new a enabled tools. I think it'll be really important for us to ensure that we're pointing those tools at the right thing for defining the right core purpose and then ensuring that as we implement those tools what we do with them is really driving a better care for patients better outcomes and truly better workflows for our clinicians and so what I think about it. Do we really know today what the ideal state of an A._I.. Enabled health plan or an A._I.. Naval Population Health Manager looks like I think that is a challenge in the industry is really going to grapple with that. This is a great point Chris in so as we think about some examples. Maybe something that you've done on early on with cardinal analytics. Maybe you could share with us something that you guys have used A._I.. Four to improve the way that things happen outcomes and business processes Aziz. It'd be good to hear that from you so cardinal really isn't a I I company the company was born out of Stanford's incubator about four years ago when Dr Arne Milstein who's a famous professor from Stanford has been working in the public health space for decades at noted that when you look at folks within in a population who become high cost each year about sixty percent of them are totally new so about half of people who are are high cost and therefore high acuity eighty patients a drop out revert to the meeting each year and he asked the question of one of his his partners there at Stanford. Hey is this something we could predict and Seductive Nigam Shaw who's one of the countries machine learning experts said you know that we can so for years ago. They trained a model on international data set and sure enough approved that we could predict who are going into bloom and cost next year moved from the bottom. You know ninety percent into that top de silent cost so that The engine driving better care sooner for as we noted patient's health plan members and employees nationwide when he thinks all about what is the power of machine learning what what can we do at the biggest utilizations of A._i.. Enabled software today have really been using massive labeled data sets to dramatically improve approve workflows and sort of match kind of right place right time right thing like you've got a I in your pocket many times A._I.. Powers Theory theory to tell you what she thinks you're going to want to say next or if you're identifying pictures on anywhere on the Internet that is the power of machine learning using unlabeled data set and within healthcare we have tons of labeled data sets that we just haven't put them to use in ways that could improve patient outcomes and that is exactly what we're doing you hear cardinal while it's fascinating Chris and I think a lot of folks take a look at this topic of A._I.. In healthcare and in particular the predictive fictive models and and stripping away variability to improve outcomes so the thought goes into what at are you pulling and how are you pulling it. It's where you pulling it from to get these analytics because if you could prevent these high cost patients from having these continual issues hunter you do it correctly right today we predominantly use a combination of medical claims prescription drug claims lab results and then other data that at different clients may have access to so perhaps this year economic data or other sources and with each new client we learn about interesting new data sets and the the idea fall is if we can look no catch multiple years worth claims history and then say okay. There's a high likelihood that Chris Thirty eight year old male with these various conditions who's had these kinds of encounters lives in this area. He has a really high probability of blooming next year moving from low cost now too high cost the question then is okay. Is there anything we can do to prevent that and the answer is yes that you know sometimes that bloom in cost is driven by someone who's heading down a surgical pathway and and perhaps you know they have not gone through the right process to see if that surgery is really needed or if it is needed have they really connected with the provider in their space is going to be a both the highest quality and and most cost effective or perhaps. It's someone who's Kinda fallen through the cracks of healthcare delivery system. Maybe maybe they don't have solid primary care. They connected with a couple of specialists or they've in the E.. D. For these ambulatory care sensitive conditions and really what they need is better care coordination the we've. We've got a ton of examples now of folks effort one of our clients who we've caught kind of in this state and through some some pretty basic sort of simple care management Benjamin interventions we've been able to connect them into the right pathways sort of captured them from falling off the cliff and then both improved their health outcome as well as reduced a cost for <hes> for the health plan. I think that's brilliant and are you guys. Mainly working with insurance plans providers a little bit of both both coming. Our approach is really relevant to anyone who is is in the role of managing populations health and in cost imagine how plans have been sort of the folks most attracted initially to the Darren offerings that we have been in that space for a long time that we are working with a <hes> a large integrated plan provider and they'll be a public announcement on that in the very near future and then the employer space employers who are large arch enough to really be able to think holistically about the health of their workforce. Those are folks who had worked with US L. Fascinating Yeah because at the end of the day folks we really have to look at this from the perspective of the payer in the and the population level the impact that these things are these these technologies is that Chris Dr Dairy Enzo and his team are using are definitely making a difference for outcomes and cost to the things that need to be solved for so as as you all have been working on this Chris. What would you say a setback or a lesson that you guys learned along the process of the programs? You've been implementing yeah. <hes> I think that any time in healthcare we try to integrate new technology into workflows. There's going to be challenges with implementation. I remember the very first time I tried to bring machine learning into a program admission. It was an objectively better model way better predictive capacity than the tool full of teams using previously but that took several months to really be able to integrate into the workflow in a way that the team could know us and so I think as we've worked with early clients it's clear there are definitely a new universe of opportunities that a enabled technologies are offering and so we've become very focused on helping ensure that that we're connecting with health plan or a provider or employers different lever arms so that we maximally support the humans who are at the other end of connecting eighteen those predictions to action and that really is where our focus as a company is is yes the different machine learning models can predict off costs and what their cost really means though Oh is a person's life who's getting sicker which is leading them to need to engage in more high-cost care and so we can prevent a person from I'm getting sicker than it's the person has gotten better care sooner as a result they're experiencing lower healthcare costs and that leads to a more sustainable healthcare model overall. That's really fascinating so now that you guys have been cranking so Carl. Analytics has been in business for how long again Chris five four years. Yes we spun out of Stanford starbucks for years ago like I said the the first hire was really break. Data scientists are now. I lose track depending on the day we're eighty to twenty five or twenty six employees scaling rapidly bringing on almost one new person every week to really keep pace with the market demand that we're Chrissy amazing amazing and so now you guys have scaled to a larger size. You're continuing to grow in the history of the work that you guys have done. What's the proudest moments that's a really good question? You know what I think about what we can do at a population level. It's really impresses. The delta that we can demonstrate straight across multi-million lives within a population is dramatic but I think some of the proudest moments that I've had are when Story was woman in her fifties. I think as she had significant cardiac risk she's a tobacco user shed some underlying behavioral health challenges a number of of pain issues and was on multiple opiates she had engaged in something like twenty plus different outpatient visits and had a year one cost that was significant thing was over eleven seven thousand dollars and so as a as a partner. We predicted hey. This is someone who looks like she's going to bloom in year two and said the three drivers that we're seeing of that are those cardiac combined with tobacco risk and then behavioral health combined with this pain plus opiates and then this is a person who had never hit a plan <hes> you know high cost claim world or providers you know high needs populations that she was not totally well but she was not so sick that you would have gotten kind of the high touch bespoke spoke care management about we found her and the plans care management side engaged and they linked her again to sort of not sprain surgery sort of things they they found really high quality counseling for her. They found her tobacco cessation program that worked and she's now most of the way through her year to less than fifty percent kind of the cost less than fifty percents utilization in terms of outpatient visits but more importantly she now has continued you know pain and diagnosed us of depression but is not on opiates so she's gotten off of these highly addictive and highly expensive medications and despite her existent cardiac risk she's no longer using using tobacco so she's markedly improved future risk profile but I've seen a person like that and I know that but for our partnership with clients she would very likely have continued to fall through the cracks at makes me really proud of what we do. Have that's really big. Chris and you know one of the things that I've noticed as as more physicians like yourself join industry to help make things better. I see the dots being connected in a way that really will will help us continue to improve the care pathways and the overall results. I mean you mentioned something really really important. As that yeah you watt as we take cost out of the system or actually improving lives so as the dollars that we spend go down health goes up. It's inversely. Lee Related and we need more folks like you Dr Dairy Enzo in the business. I appreciate that saw one of the things I like most about my new job is I get the clinical side and I can work on that all day. I have no clue had a program in python or an our work with these ridiculously absolutely brilliant people who when we drive a problem they say I don't have a model that and then they go to work on their their giant Mac books whatever and then sometime later they come out and they say look here's what we're now able to do with this prediction and then I get to say well. Here's what we can do that to change someone's life. I think as a doctor you're on the health system side the folks who worked in industry who I was most excited to partner with your really got the problems that we were trying to solve and where they were as partners to help us solve them and and there are many ways I think to be able to do that in a a revenue sustainable manner and ultimately drive total cost down just in part because of the way that today with limited resources were not focusing on folks. I think who can sometimes most benefit from engagement finding someone like this this woman and I've got tons of examples like her who are about to deflect you know. They're about to fall off off that cliff. Their health is about to get worse. Their cost is going to rise dramatically we if we can keep that from happening over and over and over and over again think about the deflection in the overall health of the country to the positive and the total cost to the the negative so I if that's not something doctor I could get excited about than I.. I'm not sure why I went into medicine in the first place lava Chris and you know one of the things things that that <hes> just kind of a side note of had the privilege of speaking with several other successful physicians like yourself that that have taken a turn in the industry industry and I noticed really can have two two characteristics one is a strong passion and desire to help and then the second thing is the desire desire to scale beyond what you could do on your own or at an institution and joining industry definitely helps provide that scale ability because like you said right going from two million patients to three hundred fifty million potentially. It's a big thing and I congratulate you for that. What would you say is an exciting project. You're working. GonNa one of the most exciting things about working at a company at this stage is the speed of growth and the the pace in which we can drive change and so the the three offerings that we have out there right now on cost bloom on kind of matching <hes> folks who have preference sensitive conditions with bright spots providers using Arnie's researches language and then on risk assessment adjustment. Those are kind of the three things we get to do today but working with Brian in the data science team means that by the end of the year even by the end of the quarter entirely new things that we're getting to bring to market and so some of the most exciting work kind of in our skunkworks. I can't really talk about yet but if you keep an eye on cardinal over the course of the year I think you'll see some really exciting connections that that will be able to make that but I've not yet been able to see made in the market fascinating so you get people confusing you card and a half a lot or no you know. I think the spelling of Our Name Kinda helps helps distinguish. That's the cardinal analytics with the ex and the fact that cardinal healthcare they're. They're a big insignificant industry player but there. I think been historically more on a different side of the road. That's true yeah very very different but it's worth distinguishing here for the listeners right. I mean these guys are innovating in a big way. Using a I and data science to help population health decrease costs improve outcomes while the other side. It's distribution Armagh very different <hes> as to deduct it does point so here. We've gotten to the lightning rounds. I got a couple of questions for you. Chris followed by a book obviously aside from your book which is tiny medicine one doctors biggest lesson from his smallest patients a recommendation that you'd make their and listeners just a note. If you go to the each show notes you'll be able to find a link to Dr Chris Derian those book as well as our entire transcript than short notes go to outcomes rocket etc health and in the search bar type in cardinal analytics with an x and you'll find it bare but Chrissy ready for the lightning around. Hey I've gone through this once before your veteran all right. What's the best way to improve healthcare outcomes. I answered this. This one for you already. I'll answer it the same way to continuously get better. The best way to improve healthcare outcomes is focused on always getting better. What's the biggest mistake or pitfall to avoid? I think that sometimes folks see a new technology or a new approach and either out of fear fear or out of fear of the unknown or fear of change a can initially be challenged by that and that's a normal human instinct and totally understandable but I think it would be a mistake to fall victim to only feeling that fear without offering yourself the opportunity to see what different might look like because any of the the major major transformational changes in healthcare at any industry have really needed someone to take that next step and say I really can't envision a future that is both different and better. How do you stay relevant as an organization despite constant change constant changes what keeps US relevant? I think that in a world that is exceptionally sleep dynamic in healthcare. It's not just about being on trend but about continuing to focus every day. On what tools do I need. How do I need to equip my teams to be better tomorrow than they are today? What scenario focus that drives everything in your work there at Cardinal Carlo? That's a simple answer. It's better care sooner which means that we get to to serve people so plan members patients employees all across the nation and we get to serve the people who are trying to support them so the the care managers suggest the care coordinators folks doctors offices in employee health. You know locations they are doing their very best to try to serve their people and as a result we get to serve so Chris. Since last time we were together. I started asking to new ones. These are more surprise the listeners to get another guests a little bit better so on a personal now. What is your number one health habit? I am a bit of a movement junkie anymore. I'm good friends with Eric Eric Eric Lanes Sharon Nick clamp the authors of start here which is a New York Times bestseller few years ago <hes> that drove the beginning of a company call life x t and I've done. I've done some work with them over time. I really believe in their mission within their construct. They've got sort of US nine. He's nine different components of driving having personal well-being so meditation. There's a core group on that gratitude is when there for me I find that movement everyday are really helps. Keep Me League grounded and so I'm I'm a triathlete. I took that up when running boxed my niece and I've realized that if I had woman biked Endrin I could do all three without being injured all the time though I <hes> I gotTa make sure I get movement every day. Love it love it Chris and what is your number one success habit my number one success at it. Oh Gosh I'm not sure how to answer that one but it reminds me of a passage from Colin Powell's book <hes> one of my favorite books it worked for me and he was talking about how he came home one day in his brand spanking new general dress uniform looking all fifty and he walked in to his house us and one of his kids bomb G._I.. Joe Is home and is point. Obviously was having family who keeps you grounded as a wonderful gift. Then I think for me I would say the same thing that's unfortunate to have three kids and I'm married to a wonderful woman and I think much of my ability to succeed. Professionally is how rewarding my my my life personally. That's awesome Chris. Thanks for sharing that and <hes> yeah. It's a good reminder to all of us. You know the why of what we do remember it. Don't keep it front and center and so obviously you wrote a book so aside from tiny medicine. Which book would you recommend the listeners yeah? I certainly would would recommend that one out to June eleven by the time you're podcast is is up. <hes> Amazon preorder should be live but a book that I read recently recently that I I really enjoyed. I was educated by terror westover. I read it on a recommendation from Troy. WHO's one of the C._V._S. executives and men it was a really powerful a message my wife and I actually got to read it together which is rare as she likes to read books in hardback form and I do most of my reading the audible on planes and and unfit to Evelyn all around the world to we sort of contemporary earnestly read it together and just it was a really powerful I really powerful story Great Recommendation Chris Chris <hes> definitely put that one on your list listeners and again a reminder to go to outcomes rocket dot health in the search bar type in cardinal analytics with an x risk and you'll be able to find our conversation and links to Dr Durians those recommendations there before we conclude Chris I love if you could just just share a party messes with the listeners and then the best place where they could learn more about you and what you're doing you bet so as always saw really appreciative of folks like you who are willing to bring members from all across healthcare folks on the provider side in industry and plans and employers really really what I find? Is You bring together folks who are pushing the edge and really trying to drive change and healthcare as an industry that is ripe for a disruption in a a number of ways and I think that in reflecting on both of the Times I've gotten to join you kind of one of the core messages to me. I think is if as a doctor her clinicians are constantly focusing on not only how do I how do I treat the patient in front of me today. But how do I make the system better to treat treats patients including me all across the country better and better and better and better than it'll lead to the kind of change that we need in healthcare their industries that reach each our size. I've gotten disrupted effectively every century since the founding of our nation and since disruption is coming to our our work in healthcare it gives me a great degree of comfort that folks like the people you have on your podcast are are helping drive because I think that means we'll be pointing it in the right direction to get in touch with me. <hes> you can reach reject me on Lincoln. Our website is also also live. I just google cardinal analytics and you'll see it there outstanding Chris Listen this has been a pleasure once again super excited with this new turn in your career and this exciting company that you've become a part of and <hes> definitely looking forward to stay in touch and maybe a year from now <hes> getting you back on to hear the progress. That sounds great so I could be your first three peat you would be hey would love the opportunity Chris. Thanks again. You bet take care.

3-24-2017 Worship Service
"We'll begin service day with seeing number two hundred and seventy four no not one. There's a lot about that song. There's not a friend like the lowly Jesus. And there's not. And he also says was there ever I give like to save your given. And while he refuses a home in heaven. No, not one all of those that will come to him. Truly desired him to be our savior, truly desiring him to forgive us. Our sense. And truly desired to walk with him. He will be there for us. And he will be our savior. Jesus christ. Our Lord and master here on the air. What a free in. What if say? That he is to all those that will accept him to all those that will just last side there will and their way and accept Jesus Christ. As our savior? So let us this morning. Thank him for what he is done for us. And give him all the honor and the glory. For coming here to the earth being Bedia to father in all things. To use the power that his father had given him to be able to overcome Satan and everything to be able to set an example for us of how we should walk and what we should do here. As we go through our pilgrim cheer on the earth. And are we growing? Are we drawing near? To god. Are we draw near? Dr Lord safer. Are we walking worthy? Of his spirit within us. Each week that goes by draws closer to eternity. Seemed like they go by awfully quick. And soon. As we have seen numerous times in our lifetime. People leave this world, they go off into eternal life or eternal death. Whatever it might be. We all have that spirit that so within us that will live throughout eternity in a spirit world. And how will it be with us? Are we walking without Lord and savior today? And that's the question that each and every one of us should have are we walking with him. Do we have a true desire? To have him first in everything that we do. That there is no other idol. There's no other God in our life. But just following him walking close with our Lord and our savior Jesus Christ. We have turned this morning. The first Corinthians. The first chapter. Unless read there, there may be other places anywhere, we read I know, there's a message force. I know that there's things good throughout the entire bible because our Lord and savior was the one that had these things compound. He had righteous men that were writing these letters. And he has had them recorded. So that we can be encouraged with them today. We can be chasing with them. Whatever might be. We can use them to our benefit spiritually unless think on these things this use it for that. Let's see what the message is here. This letter was written close to two thousand years ago. But I know that it stands Justice much. There will be things in it today that we all need to take heed to. So that we can understand and walked closer to our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. As we go through this life. He says Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God and socities are brother and to the character of God. Which is at Korean to them that are sanctified in Christ. Jesus called to be saints with all that in every place. Call up on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord both theirs and ours grace beyond to you and peace from God, our father, and the Lord Jesus Christ Paul said a lot in those few words there. First of all he qualified who he was. He says, I am Paul. Called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God. Are we satisfied with the condition that we're in today? Are we confident enough in with our condition between us and the Lord to be able to make a statement such as Paul did there. He says I am called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God. And the we know today that we have accepted at Paul knew that he had been called. And he had accepted that and the spirit of God working within him. And he also had a friend there brother that he felt like was in the same position. I believe. And then he just goes on any makes a statement of who he was writing to. And he says I am writing unto the church of God. Which is Korean could this group of people here today? Could we be classified truly as a church of God one that is truly worshiping truly. Walking with him today. And I believe that there was people there cringe that was doing these things. And if we if we read far enough you'll see that there is things that Paul was bringing to their tension. Even though they were walking in that. There was mistakes that they were making and Paul wanted through the Loehr to put these things out. So that they could clean them up while they were here in the land of the living. But he just told me so this is the church of God. And I believe this church. Here is a church of God. I believe that his spirit is here with us. And he works with us and all those want to be accepted with it and accept him can be accepted and are accepted here today. Two that are sanctified in Christ Jesus. Now that's each and every one of us the opportunity for us to be sanctified in him by receiving that spirit. He says called to be saints called with God, the father by God, the father to be able to be a Saint debate to receive the spirit of the Holy Ghost. And then to be able to walk them. With all in every place. Call on the name of Jesus Christ. Our Lord both theirs and ours Paul was not saying if just he or certain group of people was able to receive that he says Jesus Christ is Lord both. There's all of whoever it might be the gentiles Jews whoever Jesus Christ was there's if they wanted it. And he said it is hours. Also. Paul's g. But he did not he spent a lot of time most of his time preaching and teaching and ministry. To the gentiles. Grace bien to you and peace from God, our father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. And let that be with all of us today. Grace be unto you. The spirit of God the power of God be unto us. What Paul say that's available to you receive it. I think my God always on your behalf for the grace of God. Which is giving you by Jesus Christ. And I wanna thank him today for what he has done. This. We sung here. There's no other savior. There's what a savior Jesus Christ. Paul just thinking he says on your behalf. For the grace of God, which has given you by Jesus Christ. And can we all today say that we have accepted that we've accepted Jesus Christ and his powers within us? And we're walking with him. That in everything we are in rich by him in all utterance. And in all knowledge, this is what the spirit can do for us. All friends, whoever you are doesn't matter. He says in everything are enriched in him in rich by him enriched in our mind enriched spiritually as what Paul was talking about there. In all utterance and all knowledge in all the things that you are speaking. And in all of your knowledge, you are enriched with the spirit of the Holy Ghost. What a wonderful thing thank about being courage. D- is that in your life today? Do you know that do, you know him fully as you're safe? Even as a testimony of Christ was confirmed in new. So that you come behind in. No gear waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Are you coming behind into gift in the gift of the power of God that he is offering? He has to all of us today. Are we behind or we will these people is so that you come behind and no gear he says that testimony of Christ whose confirmed in you by your works by your knowledge by your understanding by your accepting ham. And by receiving the grace of God. He said, that's what has then. So that you come behind in no gift that you're able to receive that gift of eternal life wading. For the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ waiting for him to come into you. And to take your way from this earth and to be with him forever and ever what a day that will be friends for we can leave this world and go into a turn ity. To spend their with our Lord and all the righteous and with God, the father and be an air with Jesus to that beautiful city to those matches that he has promised for us. All. Thank about what we're what we're talking about here. We look around in the natural things here on the earth. And we will go out, and we will see diligently when we decide that we want to copy something or there's something that we won't here on the earth that could give us some pleasure here on this earth. This is what most people here in Addams family. This is their mind, and they will go out, and they will sacrifice and do all manner of things. So they might gain that worldly pleasure. That are doing. But what about spiritual part? If you just look back this past week and our lives each and everyone of us how much time have we spent? In the natural part. And I know that takes a lot of time to spend in the natural part. But even while we are working and doing whatever it might be. So that we can live here on earth and take care of our obligations. We can be in spirit. We can be thanked we can be communicating with our Lord and savior, right as we're doing our daily wall. But then when we look around another things how much time are we spending in the word how much time do we understand these things how much time are we spending encouraging others in the truth. Just look at what Paul was doing Paul. I believe gave up gave it up. All I believe that he had a mind as he was coming along. He was educated. And I believe that he had big plans of how he was going to live his life. And he was going to be someone in thority. I believe is kinda way I look at Paul. But when he saw the truth when he was smitten down on the road down to Damascus there. He was as he was going to imprison the righteous people that believe the phone Jesus Christ have put the dance or whatever it did not matter to him. He hated that work. But I believe that Paul truly wanted to serve God. And God was able to open his mind, and he accepted it. That's the key to it. All he accepted the seed was so and he did not allow Satan to just come in and take it away immediately. He furnished it good ground. He waited upon God. He went on down there to Damascus. And he was there without a site for three days of believe. And in Beijing, God was able to show him that they're gonna man come to him and baptize him. And that's what took place. And ladies hands on and he was able to receive the spirit of the Holy Ghost and immediately. He preached Jesus Christ crucified Jesus Christ missile the world savior would immediately went to. To the establishment of many people. How's the able to do that? By just putting it into the hands of Jesus Christ. And who shall confirm you into the end that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. And that's the key friends who shall also confirm you to the end, and that's Jesus Christ. King will confirm us in his work to the end if we will walk with him with we hold out with him. God is faithful by whom you were called into the fellowship of his son. Jesus christ. Our Lord God is faithful for end. By whom he work hold onto the fellowship. Are we fellowship ING with Jesus Christ? Our Lord today you and on a daily walk as we go through life. Are we truly fellowship ING with him? Now beseech you brother by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ that you all speak the same thing, and there'd be no divisions among year. And that you be perfectly joined together in the same mine in same judgment. Now. Look at what Paul was about to bring to these people's attention. He hit told them all about already told them how that God was working within them through Jesus Christ. There was people there. They had been able to accept that. But now, he's he's got some things that he wants to bring to their attention that they need to clean up being. And he says now I beseech e brother in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. He says I want you all to understand. He says I am telling you these things I am asking you to do these things what he's really saying. When he says, I beseech you I want you to have close attention to this is what he's saying. That you all speak the same thing. Knowing the doctrine is knowing what the truth is what he saying you all are able to teach that when they go back. And remember what he says that an everything you are enriched by him and all other it's and all knowledge and ridged by the spirit of the Holy Ghost. If you are in richton that. Then he says that you all speak the same thing. And you be there being no divisions. Among. But that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. What do you want? This is what Paul was speaking to those people in that day. And I believe that the more speaking to us just this plane and certain today is he was. That we're one together with Jesus Christ. We're one with him with his father. And we'd be perfectly join together in the same mind. And if we're walking with him, we are walking with Christ Jesus, we will be in the same mind. For a have been declared to me, AVI. My brother by them, which are the house of Cleo that their contentions among you. Someone had brought this to Paul's teaching that their contentions among the people there at the church of Korean. Even though Paul had already told them all about how that the Lord was working with this group of people. He says there's something here that you need to clean up in. There's something that you need to look into. Now, this I say that everyone of you said, I'm Paul I have a policy I've seen and I of Christ. Is Christ divided was Paul crucified for you. Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? Is Christ divided. Is he divided today? Among us are we walking all a one accord with him. Now, there's people in this day here and things that Paul was bringing out to their attention. He says there's some of them were same because I believe that they were maybe following certain people are these people might have been preachers, teachers, they were they were different ones that had taught to the people some had baptize different ones there. And some of them was maybe saying, well, I am walking or I have a more religious benefit or more. I am more religious than you. Because I am with Paul. I am a believer in a follower of Paul. And maybe the other says, well, I am because I follow a policy, and he is my friend and another safest. But he says there some says I am of Christ. And that's where we better all be today. It doesn't matter. Where you go. If you are going to where the doctrine of the truth Christ is being preached and tall. And I want you to understand just listening and hearing what others have to say throughout our country. I think it's a very very rim lit. Where the truth is really being preached in our country today. I think that it you better be extremely careful. Of how we take license. Two. Go to places and the here were here things and here to doctrines that goes against what the truce of this book says. But these people in that day, some of them felt differed about different things. And I know that we that God has people throughout this world that is serving ham. I can assure you that. But be careful that you don't let Satan deceive you into believing a lie. Is Christ divided was Paul crucified for you. Or were you baptized in the name of Paul not at all? And he wanted them to understand these things that Christ is not divided. He will be at one, and he is one. He says was Paul crucified for you was not Paul that hug on that cross. You'd better be looking to Jesus Christ. He said for your have you'd better be a part of the truth spiritual church of Jesus crying. And not just be something. That you feel like well, I'm okay because I am certain. I'm a member of certain church, or whatever those things are good. But I I know that we better have that spiritual part. That is what will get us into heaven. There's no church that will get us there. There's no denomination. There is no religious affiliate that will get it there. But the righteousness that comes from God, the father through his son Jesus Christ is what will put us there. He was the one that was crucified for our CNN's. He is the one that was risen out of the tomb out of the grave. So that we can have eternal life. I think God that I baptize none of you. But Christmas and gas. Let's any should say that I had baptized amount name and baptized. Also, the house of Stephanus beside no, not whether baptized any other for Christ's me, not to baptize, but to preach the gospel. Not with wisdom of words, less. The cross of Christ should be made of none of fake. Listen carefully to that. He said God sent him here to preach the word of God to preach, the gospel of Jesus cries, and what is the gospel of Jesus Christ. But to believe on him. And accept him. And then he says follow what I asked for you to do do the things that I asked you if you love me says keep my commandments. For Christ's sent me not too bad times. But to preach the gospel, not with wisdom of words, not in some fancy discourse or whatever. But he says less the cross of Christ should be made. None affect Preet simple. Peer and free that the cross of Christ. Jesus Christ died on the cross for your seeings. And you better accept that. And he also came out of that tune. Because Satan could not hold him there. God the father had power over that natural death. And he raised him back to life in that natural body. He was here on the earth. For peered of about forty days. I believe it was. And then he is sending back up into heaven. And he says I will come again. And he will friends he will descend with the great shout with the Trump. And all of those that are dating Christ that have gone on. We'll come out of the graves to rise to medium in the air. And we if we are alive here on the earth and walking with him. We will rise to meet him to ever be with him. And he says encourage one another in these things. That's the opportunity that therefore all if we put our full faith and trust in Jesus Christ. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perished foolishness but into us which are saved it is the power of God. And what is the preaching of the cross to you today? The true words. Is foolishness. Do you look on his words that are being given to us as Foley snus? He saved but unto us which are saved onto us that has received the power of God. And have that hope in that peace within us that we are saved from our CNN's. He says it's the power of God. That's what preaching dust Frantz. That's what the gospel of Jesus Christ shows us that it's the power of God available to all of us. He says for eight is written. I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and will bring to nothing the understanding of the Prut the wise in this in their own sale and those prudent in in their own words. He says I will bring to nothing I will destroy the wisdom of the wives. Where's the wise? Where's the scribe? Where's the dispute or of this worl- have not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? The things of this world. He says our enemies of God. If we allow them to become our gods. But he says where is the wise in righteousness in the work of Jesus Christ? He says where are those that are wise in their own concedes? Where's the scribe those that felt like they were they were righteous people in that day and did not need listen to buy and did not believe in the messiah of Jesus Christ being the messiah here the earth the savior of the world. He says, where's the speeder of this world have not God made the wisdom food made foolish the wisdom of this world. And he has. To all of those that put their faith and trust in the things of this world. He says those that understand the truth. See how foolish that is in. God's word shows. How foolish putting our faith and trust in the things of this world are. For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom, new not God it pleased. God by the foolish of preaching to save them that believe in the world looks phone the truth of God is foolishness. He says, but he says, that's what has saved those that believe. For the Jews require sign and the Greek seek act wisdom. But we preach Christ crucified and to the Jews a stumbling blonde and into the Greeks foolishness. Listen carefully to that again and look out throughout our country throughout the land. Today, how that people seek after all manner of things and go to all kinds of seminaries in whatever it might be to try to gain more and more Dali knowledge in the name of Dr beside their name because they have become a doctor of the Allah g when all we have to do is as just go back, and look and see what God did with this man year, how he gave him all the knowledge that he needed to be able to preach into teach and do a wonderful work. So wonderful that the spirit of God was working within him and a good portion of this bible this new test. But after the gospels is the works of Paul the spirit of God in Paul and how did he do that by following the gospel by follow? Knowing the spirit not by knowledge of what man had given to him. But by knowledge that came through the spirit of God. And he said there he says for the Jews require side, the Greek seek after wisdom wanted to see all kind of things, and that's what goes on throughout our country today ever learning, but never coming to the true knowledge of God. But we preach Christ crucified. That's what we need to all be preaching. We need to be accepting that unto the Jews a stumbling block, and it is onto them because they did not want to believe it was a stumbling block to them is that a stumbling block to you and into the Jews. They looked on it as foolishness. But spirit of God. Was able to show it and Paul, and he understood this was the truth. It was not the snus, but he accepted, and there's people here today that know that this is not foolishness, but it's the truth of God. And it will give them eternal life by just accepting this and walking in it, but unto them which are called Jews and Greeks Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God unto them who are called. And how can we be called accepting? Repent? And asking. That he will call and he will choose us. He will call us, and he says Jews and Greeks. The power Christ the power of God and wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For you. See your calling. How not many men after the flesh not many mighty not many noble are cold. This poll was writing this two thousand years ago that he's saying things were going on in that day. That we talk about in our day. He says for you, see you're calling brethren. You see how you have been called into the gospel been called into the spirit. And he says how that not many wives being actor the flesh and look around how people feel like they are so wise in their mind today, and Satan has them to see into believing that we are. So Why's that? We just all we can do have to do is believe and say that Jesus Christ was the son of God. And I believe that. And now I can go on and I can live my life. However, my sins are covered. He says that not many after the flesh they are living ban after the flesh because they are continuing in that Leslie mind, the lust of the flesh that they live in that has not been taken away. The no they they say those things he says they worshiped me with the mouth, but their heart is far from me. Not many wise men actor the flesh, not many mighty not many noble are called. Why why are they not called because they are putting their faith and trust in themselves in man, not in God through Jesus Christ. But God had chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise and God had chosen the week things with the world to confound the things which are mighty. And base things of the world and things which are despised half God chosen and things which are not to bring to know things that no flesh should glory in his plant presence that no none of us should glory and our flesh with the presence of God within us and ks case. That no flesh do that. Because it if we have received that spirit of the Holy Ghost. Then we're not glorying in us. We're glory, and and what God has done and what he has given to us through his son, Jesus cries, that's what we will be glory in. But of him or Ye in Christ Jesus. Who of God is made unto us, wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption. That's what righteous will have. But off him are Ye in Christ Jesus now him God are Ye that are in Christ Jesus in the spirit saying who of God. Is made into us wisdom, and that's that righteous wisdom. He says that God will give to all of those that come into him. And righteousness and thank to fixation, and redemption, we have been redeemed from our sans. Redeemed out of this life this natural life into eternal life redeemed by having faith in God, the father through Jesus Christ our Lord that according as it is written. He that Gloria led him glory in the Lord not in man, not in some building. Not in what somebody is telling you. But what led him glory in the Lord, Jesus cries? And what he has done. And what his word says that he will do for us. Walk with him for ends and be strong use the power that he says, I'll give to you to overcome all thing and brother when I came to you came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom declaring onto you the testimony of God. And that's exactly what I wanna be today. And I tell you I'm not at all excellency in the speech. Of a proper grammar and all kind of things there. But I wanna be how as he says here with excellency. Of wisdom, declaring unto you. The testimony of God goes back. Let's read that again. So that I clarify he says and brethren when I came to you came not with excellency wiz. Speech or of wisdom of own sale is what he's talking about. He didn't come there with all manner of or -tations. But he came there declaring onto you the testimony of God. And now know that that is what is being declared to you today friends, and we can accept it or not. But it is the testimony of God and his work year pony or and it is time for us to make a decision of what are we going to do? How are we going to walk? Are we go be at one? We Jesus Christ. And lay aside the things that will so easily set us at distance from him. And walk with him. And then encourage one another in his work for determined not to know anything among you, say Jesus, Christ and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and fear and much trembling. And my speech, and my preaching was not within Tyson words of man's wisdom. But in demonstration of the spirit and of power. Let's see what Paul saying they're understand what he was saying. There was things that needed to be cleaned up there. And they was just telling them why. And how he was doing what he had done. He says when I came to you. I determined not to know anything among you of the natural things he says, but save Jesus Christ and him crucified. He says that is what I have was determined in. That is what I was going to preach into teach to you. And I was with you in weakness in natural weakness, and in fear and in much trim Ling, I believe that he had godly fear. And I believe in trembling there knowing that Satan was of was there and to tempt him and to try to get him off onto something else. But he. Was there knowing? He could preach the gospel simple. Pure and free as he said in my speech, and my preaching was not within Tyson words of man's wisdom. He was relying totally Abon. God the father and Jesus Christ. Not with some enticing words of preaching and teaching that he had. But in demonstration of the spirit and of power. And that's exactly what I wanna see today is demonstration of the spirit of God and his power working and all of us today friends, and that's where it must be. If we want to be a part of his kingdom here on the earth that your face should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. And that's where it has to be and be careful people have taken the word of God and change of into a alaso that they can justify their wicked ways. And when you teach into preach, these type things to karnal people. They just continued to stay in that same condition. We have to preach the truth, simple, pure and free. If we accepted in that manner, if we wanna get out of our CNN's, and that's what Paul was Sade here, and my speech in my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom. But in demonstration of the spirit and power that your face should not stand in the wisdom of man. But in the power of God. And that's where it better be today with each and everyone of us is our faith be in the power of God knowing that he is. Told us that he will give to each and every one of us a spirit of power. The power of God to overcome Satan. And all things Paul was being very plain to these people how we speak wisdom among them. That are perfect yet. Not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes this world that come to knowledge. He says he speaks wisdom to them. That are perfect in the spirit of God. And he's talking about the wisdom of God. The wisdom of the gospel of Jesus crimes the wisdom of the words that are written here in this book is what we need to be working with in our day. Paul didn't have these gossips, and he didn't have these letters to read into exhort people by he was writing this letter to them. He was the author Jesus Christ. And God the father was the author. Poll was just putting it down on paper there. So that others could be able to read and others could be able to understand. And he says there how we speak wisdom among them. That are perfect yet. Not the wisdom of this world, nor the prince of this world that come to note. And those things will come to nothing when our Lord and savior comes back to the earth all things that he says that are anti Christ that are false teachers who ever it might be. They will be destroyed. Friends be careful that we don't accept counterfeit teachings, but we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery. And this is what Paul was speaking to them. And that day don't let something counterfeit come in. He says, but we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom which God or Dane before the world and to our glory, which none of the prince of this world new for had they known it. They would not have crucified the Lord of glory. They did not know why did they not know because they did not want to know it if they had had a true. Zeier to won't God would have given them that understanding, but they did not which God or Dane before the world and to our glory that wisdom that righteous wisdom has been law all the way along and is now so readily available under the law of grace to all of us, but he says, which none of the prince of this world need princes of this world. He said thank about who. That is. That is the people who are worshiping the things of the world has that adultress mind. For had they known and he's talking about in that day. They would not have crucified the Lord of glory, and in our days, if we truly know an understand these things and walk in it, then we will accept it in not continuously be crucifying our Lord and savior. And what's we accept that? Once we have been enlightened by the spirit of the Holy Ghost. Then we can't turn back. He says if you go back, then you've crucified him a fresh and there remained. No more sacrifice for seeing became full. And remember we accept him walk in spirit. But God hath revealed them unto us by his spirit for the spirit searches all things the deep things of God. God hath rebuild them unto us by his spirit. What his rece- what what has he revealed to them SCO backup leave I skip that ninth birth. But as it is written. I have not seen nor ear heard neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God had prepared for them that love him. And knows that love him those that keep his Sade. God will make that heart full with the spirit with knowledge of how we should live our life and what we should do. But he says those others he says I have not seen no ear heard. They did not. They have not accepted that neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God had prepared for them that love him. They have been able to receive it because they don't have that proper love. But God hath revealed them unto us by his spirit the righteous he says God revealed that. Us, and he he will give us that knowledge, and he'll give us peace and hope. For the spirit searches all things. The deep things of God. Is that spirit searching in you today is it searching for the deep things of God. For what man know what the things of man, save the spirit of man, which is in him, even so the things of God. No, no, man. But the spirit of God. Now, we have received not the spirit of the world. But the spirit, which is of God that we might know the things that are freely given to us God, he wants us all understand that. If we've got that spirit. We will have the wisdom. There will be no confusion. There will be no division. If we're full of that spirit with us. And God he says now we have received not the spirit of the world. That's been taken away. We had that. Now, we've received the new man the spirit of the world has been taken away. But the spirit which is of God. That we might know the things that are freely. Given to us of God, what is freely given to us? God. The grace of God the power of God. The gift of eternal life. These what he's talking to. These are the things that God has given us that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God power over Satan. Which things also we speak not in words, which man's wisdom teaching, but which the Holy Ghost teaches comparing spiritual things with spiritual. Is that what do we see that in our individual sale today? Not the things of this world. In. But which the Holy Ghost teachers. Is that what knowledge that you have today could spit comparing spiritual things with spiritual or we can pairing natural things with natural things. But the Matra man receive if not the things of the spirit of God. The natural man cannot receive that in Paul these people to understand, and he wants us to understand it for they are foolishness unto him. And when people look around the people of the world, and it's foolishness that they say that you need to do these things and that that you don't have to do that. And they'll tell you. But listen to what our Lord and savior says he says we do have to live in that manner. But he that is spiritual judge if all things. Yet. He himself is judged of. No man for who had known the mind of Lord that he may instruct him. But we have the mind of Christ. And our brethren could not speak into you as unto spiritual. But an as unto karnal even into babes in Christ. I have fed with milk and not with meat. For Heather to you or not able to bear it. Neither yet. Now. Are you able that was he was bringing it right down to the people there? And are we what conditioner you and I end today. He says I've fed with Milton. You should be material spiritually what he's saying. But he says Heather to you or not able to bear it. You were not able to bear the strong meet you were not in the condition that you should be to bear that to take hold of it to accept it. And he says now he says neither yet. Now, are you able for year yet carnally says this why they are not able to receive that? Now, let's examine our sales today. Are you walking in confusion? Are you confused? If you are then you are in this same condition. He says, I fed with milk. You've been able to re here these thank you should have been able to grow and be able now to take the strong me. So that you can sustain life. And be able to accomplish the things that God would have for you to compass spiritually. But he said he told these people after he's already gone through all of this stuff and tell him about it. He sees you did not you were not able to hear it then and neither now are you able to hear because you have a car mine. And if we aren't hearing the word today friends, it is because we have a carnal mind if we are being saved into something else. Eight is because there is a carnal mind that is carrying away the spirit of God will not do that at all. For for Ye are yet karnal. For where is there is among you, envying, envy, and strife and divisions. Are you not Carling walk as men, and if that is taken place within your life today that is all I can save just follow through look what he's saying. Are you not Carl and walking is man? For once. I am Paul or another. I of Apollo's. Are you not carnal? And let's listen carefully to what he says who when who then is Paul and who is a policy, but ministers, by whom you believe even as the Lord gave to every man, I have planted a polish watered, but God gave the increase, and we'd better know where that is. And be sure that we are listening and hearing true word so that God can give us the increase. He's already told us about other things there we have that car remind and if we're listening to things and being carried all he says, we will not be able to receive that increase. He says I planted a policy watered but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planning anything neither he that water. But God that give it the increase. Be sure that we're getting good seed planted. And that's what he talks about. We must have that. Good seed. So that God can give us the increase. Now, he that planet, and he that water are one because they were both walking in the same doctor, and they were both walking in the spirit of God. As while they were one. And every man shall receive as his own reward. According to his own labor. For we are laborers together with cod year God's husbandry year. God's building listen carefully that eight burst. Now, he that planet, and he that water one and every man shall receive his own reward. According to his labor. We've got to believe. Got gotta have faith. Got to put our trust in Jesus Christ. And then let the spirit that he will give to us. Labor within us. Because he says here that every man shall receive his own reward. According to his own labor. So if we go out here, and we labor into the Carl things into the lust of the flesh, and we're involved in all manner of things here throughout the world list. They less saving Innis dollar tree adultery fornication dance. All manner of things that he might see in liars, whatever it might be. He says you're going to reward. You will be rewarded because of the same thing there that you had what your labors are. And what does he say that those that are involved in that type of lifestyle cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven. He makes it very plain and clear to us. Does not matter. We can't live in that type of lifestyle and accept to be to be a part of his kingdom for we are labors together with God, you're God's husbandry your gods building. Now are we allay with him? Are we God's building? If that's the case, then we can't take it in defile it with the car mind with the Carl things of this world, according to the grace of God, which was given unto me as a wise master builder. I have laid the foundation and another build their own, but let every man take heed how he build their own be careful what he's saying. He says according to the grace of God, which is given unto me. That was what Paul was ten. He says as a wise master builder as one that understands the truth. He says I have laid foundation. I have preached to you. I have talked to you. I have fed you with that milk. And he says another build their own. But let every man take heed how he build their own. You better take heed? He says how you build. Upon that foundation. What you build upon it. Are you building silver and gold and precious stones or you building would and stubble for other foundation can no man lay than that is laid which is Jesus Christ. And that is the only righteous foundation that can be laid that we can build up on and heavy ternal life through. And that is through Jesus Christ. Our Lord friends, there is no other for other foundation. Can no man lay. That is laid. Can't do it. And have turned life. If any man build upon this foundation. Go silver precious stones would hey stubble. Every man's work. Shelby made manifest for the day shall declare it. Because it shall be revealed by fire and the fire. She'll try every man's work of what sword it is. And that fire will try work that spire that Jesus Christ has here on the earth. And it is trying our work daily. What are we doing? Are. We building on that foundation. That precious foundation that he gave to us with gold and silver and precious stones. Would hey in stem. What is there today? If any man's work, abide he show build their own and he shall receive a reward. Listen, if your work, abide if it stands the test of God, if it stands the fire of God, he says you shall receive a reward. If any man's works. You'll be burned he shall suffer loss, but he himself shall be saved yet Suez by fire. And I believe that he's talking about there that if we build that would hay and stubble here on the earth, and we see that we have made a mistake, and we can go to him, and how godly sorrow then we can use the power of God, we can use that fire of God to have those sands burned here in this life and be saved yet. So as by fire, we can be saved. No, you not that you're the temple of God. And it is spirit of God dwelt in you. Now, remember that? And listen to what he's going to say here that now we've received that spirit fast a case, and we have we are now a temple of God, which is holy quits temple. Ye are let. No, man. Go back to the first of that seventeenth bars. If any man defile the temple of God. Him show. God destroy. Pretty plain. Him. If any man defile the temple of God. And what is the temple of God, it is this temple that we live in that has the spirit of the Holy Ghost within it. That has accepted it that is what is the temple of God. If any man defile the temple of God him show, God destroy for the temple of God is holy which temple Yar. Let no man deceive himself. Any man among you seem to be wise in this world. Let him become a food. That he may be wives. If any man. Among you seem to be wise in the things of this world and not things. Righteousness. What he's talking about. He says let him become a fool to the things of the world. Let things the world become foolishness team. That he may be wives in the spirit of the Holy Ghost. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For written. He take the wives in their own craft in. And again, the Lord north the thoughts of the wives that they're vein again to people who are wising their own seeks wise in their own minds. What he's talking about not being spiritually wise. He says again, the Lord north the thoughts of the wives that they are vein. What are the thoughts in our mind? Our heart today. Therefore, let no man glory and men for all things are yours. Whether Paul or policy are safest things of the world or life or death are things present things to come all are yours and year Christ and Christ is God. He says you can overcome all of these things here on the earth with the spirit of the holy goes. These things can all be made subject to you. Because and then if that is the case, then you are Christ. You're subject to cry. And Christ is God's Christ is subject to God. And he's spirit. They inflows all the way through from God, the father to the son to you and me, and then we can walk with him. Eternally? Let's turn like turn. Just few words here. And John this is the first first of John. Read a few verses here in this fifth chapter. I John he says who's wherever believe that. Jesus Christ is born of God. And everyone that love him that began love him. Also that is begotten of him by this. We know that we love the children of God when we love God and keep his commandments. He says that's ones that love him. That's his children when we love him and not the things of this world, we get that karnal mine out. But now we have that commandment and we keep his commandments. And this is the love of God that we keep his commandments in his commandments or not grievious. That's just the things that he asked us to do daily three. He says do those things and he says that's not a greediest job for us to do for. Who's whatsoever is born of God overcome the world overcomes that carnal nature, and this is the. Victory that overcome the world, even our faith our faith in Jesus Christ that gives us that victory. Who is he that overcomes? The world. But he that believe it that Jesus is the son of God, this is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ, not by water, only, but by water and blood, and it is the spirit that bear witness because the spirit is truth. And Jesus Christ came he was bad times with the water. And he poured out his blood for us that the spirit of God is able to go through be available to us through this the water that he was baptized with and the water there that he continued that baptism. He continued to walk in it. And then he and teach us to live in that manner. And now they and he shared that blood not by water, only, but by water and blood, and it is the spirit bear witness because the. Spirit is truth. And it will stand time in eternity friends, and there are three that bear record in heaven, the father the word and the holy goes. These three are one, and there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit and the water and the blood and these three agreeing one do you see how he talks about being one in green won a green in in the gospel in and the work in the scriptures. If you receive the witness of man, the witness of God is greater for this the witness of God, which he had testified of his son. He believed on the son of God half the witnessing himself. He that believe if not God has made him a liar. And because he believed that not the record that God gave his son. And this is the record of that God has given to us. Ataur novel life at this life is in his. He had the sun half life. He has the son of God in has life. Eternal light. He that hath not the son of God hath, not life. These things I have written unto you that believe on the name of the son of God that you may know that you have eternal life, and you may believe on the name of the son of God. And this is the confidence that we have in him that if we ask anything, according to his will hear us. And if we ask him, it is his wheel that we received that spirit. And if we ask him truly desired, you give it to us, and we can truly understand. Dan that we can have power over Satan. We can have hope we can have peace. We can have joy in this life. Don't have Satan get you down. Don't let Satan divide you don't let Satan destroy your opportunity. Accept Jesus Christ is our savior and him alone. Unless walk with him. At. Together. Will saying number three hundred ten. Revive us. Again. What a song? Three hundred ten. And if there's someone that would like to make a decision that they won't to. Accept christ. You can do. So my coming forward as we say revive us again. I believe that is what Paul was writing to the crank themes about he wanted to revive them. Again, back into the things. They had one time Balide things that they have heard and believed in were some that was slipping he wanted to revive them back into that. He says we praise the God for the son of a love for Jesus who died and is now going above. He says revives again really chart without love may each so be rekindled from fire from above.

"I. Think. It was the picture of McCarrick as a Young Priest with the young boy James. I think there was something. So. Horrifying. About that. In two, thousand, eighteen, the Catholic church faced a shocking new revelation of sexual abuse within its ranks. This time the accused wasn't a troubled parish priest. It was the well-connected powerful retired Archbishop of Washington Cardinal, Theodore mckarrick I. Didn't Know Cardinal McCarrick But I certainly had interacted with him in public life, and it was shocking to hear all of that in the context of someone who has been such a public figure and it was like a punch to the gut. This is crisis clergy abuse in the Catholic Church? I'm your host Karnal Zoya. In two thousand eighteen I had just moved to DC to serve as the spokesperson at the Catholic University of America when the McCarrick News, hit Other revelations from that summer plunged the church into another sex abuse crisis.

For generations victim survivors of sexual abuse and he said to me. Who's ever going to believe you don't you know who I am I will destroy you in the press at that doesn't work. I'll have some friends over this. And High Ranking Church officials, I think what happened? In too many cases. was there was a confusion between a sin and a crime?

Your practice brought to you by top advisor podcasting a done for you. podcasting solution built just for trusted advisers. And now, nor co up top advisor Marketing Kirk Glow and Matt Halloran. Hello and welcome to another top advisor marketing podcast today we're going to get hard core tack on everybody, and as many of you know, I absolutely love technology. It's super duper. Fun. I'm an early adopter probably earlier than I should be on some things and today, so we've got Jeremy Karnal. He's the president and Chief Operating Officer at true. Lyrics Inc.. And I'm really excited about learning from him. Because as I was preparing for the PODCAST, I realized I actually don't truly understand what truly does and how it works, but I have been told because he was referred to us that it's wicked important so I'm really excited to learn to Jeremy. Welcome to the show well. Thank you so much for inviting me happy to be here. Okay, brother, let's let's just dive. Right in what surfer stuff? What? What is your history? How did you get involved with this level of technology? So I am a serial entrepreneur by graduated college in Nineteen Ninety three which put me out of wonderful place in. Being able to start my career when the Internet became commercially available, so I thought I was originally going to be a lawyer and ended up going down this pat, because how often is it that generation actually gets to live through one of those periods I was naive enough to think that the industrial revolution was the last major economic evolution. We'd ever seen a lifetime and here we are graduated as an Undergrad and I said. This is amazing, so I paid. My Own have been a serial entrepreneur. I actually started my poor experience in the. The Marketing Lane and the Digital Marketing Lane in Nineteen ninety-three grew a firm from zero to about one hundred million dollars in gross revenue with offices, three or four offices in the United States London. Singapore Sao Paulo exited from that. In Two thousand twelve, and then went in created a new startup monetize some it out of Harvard in that was called autograph. It was an early stage multi tenant, SAS platform that allowed brands to identify connected monetize relationships with key influencers. We still that the polygraph media here in Austin Texas where I now live. That was back in two thousand fourteen, and in two thousand sixteen through a Mutual Acquaintance I met Tearing Mullen. Who was the one who I really identify this intellectual property that was being held by Investment Bank in. They were doing nothing with it, and so he wanted to pull together a team by the technology, and we launched officially officially in two thousand seventeen. Okay, so let's talk about the technology component, is so you? You get word SAS which is something that we hear all the time and according to you know your your Lincoln connection, which by the way everybody you need to connect with him on linked in. J. E. R.. E. M. is so make sure that you have in his name, but it says here it is a leading business intelligent SAS platform in the wealth management sector. So, what does that mean us? Software as service, okay, and and software service became very popular when web applications began to take over from traditional software that you know back in the eighties and nineties we're so used to installing on our laptops, and then installing updates, things of that nature web applications changed all of that where you could go online everything in the cloud, and and so and everything began to become. Become subscription base, and so that's really what software service means in, so we created a web application that really has to core audiences. One is is that we help wealth management enterprises, we define those independent broker dealers asset managers custodians alleged Jay's large multi office as we help them attract and retain advisory businesses while really reducing the time and costs related to transitions and transitions. covered. The Ganic and this industry in particular just everything seems to be in transition. We we're talking about from a recruiting standpoint from a practice management standpoint and helping ver- off the independent financial advisory firms grow their business and grow their intrinsic value from protecting that asset through an unplanned secession or emergency continuity event as well as then giving that asset, a path at exit or strategic acquisition through. Through a matchmaking service, so there's all of these critical transitions that happen throughout the life cycle of a financial advisory firm. We're helping the wealth management enterprise at work with them. Offer that primarily because we're in the midst of a great transition. You know this the echina-. The the demographic dynamics associated with wealth management industry, which over indexes on a personnel. That's really getting ready to retire, that's. The calculation is like thirty trillion dollars of assets under management that could transition during that time in the ten fifteen years, and so it it's really incumbent upon these management enterprises broker dealers, etc, that really want to see those assets under management be retained help. Those independent financial advisory firms can with them transition in a way that that really helps them be able to keep those assets at the same time, then the exchange in value for the independent financial advisory firm is helping their business grow, diagnosed the health and wellness that business, so that at the point of transition they're going to maximize their. So I mean transition also is where a lot of things go wrong Jeremy mean that's where there's all sorts of hey, and you got to contact declined five or six times because you screwed. Something up, I don't want you to give away your secret sauce to be honest. Don't think our listeners totally understand what the sauce was anyway. How, how do you do that? How does your? How does the platform help? Make it so that those hiccups don't happen as frequently. Yes not a problem, so so I said earlier that really looking to solve some of the transactional costs related to transitions in wealth management. So when I mean transactional, really it's time and money right, and so let's look at. Transitions across those those it through those lenses, so it's an expensive process. Right recruitment, internal broker dealers external recruiters. They take high fees percent of salary like five to ten percent in addition to collecting retainer unplanned secession, those could cost anywhere between ten fifteen, twenty thousand. To find a partner business broker and Business Booker typically charge ten percent conditions on the value that business plan session that could be anywhere between ten to one hundred thousand dollars, and usually involves other professional services, business brokers, attorneys, sometimes accountants, and then emanate right, emon. A two, thousand eighteen. I think Forbes indicated that. Two thousand seventeen saw the highest accumulation of emanate advisory fees for the top five which. which ended up being like point, two ten twenty billion dollars, and that was a record breaking, and so there's just an enormous amount of money that that is part of that process, and then it takes enormous amount of time, and so our platform does, is we? It's made up of four distinct modules so true lyrics is made up of a macho culture recruit. which is really focused on the at the enterprise level, the recruiting the marketing in the finance personnel, and it's really geared to helping them. Sort of throw away the excel spreadsheets have an online intake form in recruiting how that since then with their salesforce, and then be able to take that data and look at it against our date, we our database, we have seven, thousand, five, hundred independent financial advisory firms in the database, making it the largest of its kind in the United States, then they can look at those prospects against our industry benchmarks, and so once they close a prospect that prospect says he has on a move from this broker dealer to. This broker dealer then our next module, which they move into is called true performance, and that then moves into the practice management group. The practice management group uses true performance. It's set step intake process we diagnose as I said earlier, the health and wellness of that business through offering that fifty different key performance indicators, which includes four standard valuations and give the practice manager and the firm owner, a quantitative ability to be able to see where in their business they need to focus on to drive traffic value of that business, so at the time of an exit They're going to maximize that. Then the last two modules are made up in focus solely on the secession. Planning groups those are emerging. Faster than I ever thought would occur like almost every one of our major enterprise customers in the a lot of them, they all almost all of them, dedicated secession groups within them, and so we have what's called true continuity which we just launched. Ironically the week that we all were told to shelter in place because of the pandemic. This is the irony I it's it's beyond me. And so true continuity allows firms to be able to have a secure online vault that allows them to store. All of the different unimportant documents related to emergency continuity. It's tied to a workflow, so you identify who your continuity contact is. That continuity contact can unlock the vault unlock the bulk it sends a workflow email and automated emails out to everyone that has. Be notified about that their their lawyer. Their business partners, the the independent broker dealer custodian asset management's that they want to know about that, and and it also then because true performance ha is able to diagnose the health and wellness that firm it puts time date stamp on the over wall value in health, and well. It's that asset at the kind. That locker was unlock. The final module is true performance, and that's actually the only one that hasn't been launched officially yet. We're still in development of that. It's earmark to launch actually in twenty twenty we were pushing to have launched in q one until the whirlwind sideways, and so we decided to. Really take our time with that and and make sure all of the business requirements dialed in before we get that launch but that's a online matchmaking solution, and it's really geared towards private matchmaking within Wealth Management Enterprises, so if you're a Sitara or l., p. l., adviser, group or Cambridge. It's you really want to be able to see plans to sessions. Happen within your network of affiliated advisory firms. That's what that helps it. Each module stage of the life cycle from recruiting again to practice management. But unplanned implants. Okay, well, let's talk about so. This is the top adviser marketing podcast when you're about the analytics or really taking a a you know the pulse of the firm in that phase two right How does marketing play in that I mean. Do you ask those questions? And if so, how do you provide solutions to them so that the advisers can focus on what they should be focusing? Focusing accepts anything about what you've done here. Is Your once again? Removing some of the noise? Some of the frustration that financial advisers have, so they can focus on what they do best in our podcast world We want to be able to make sure that they're also able to market more successfully which we believe in fact, I, just interviewed David Grou- junior firms. Accession Resource Group. And one of the things that David had said, was you know a practices valued higher through transition? If they have a solid marketing plan that provides them consistent. You know ideal client, so help me with that Brienne. Yes so we're not focused on that side of the industry, the demand generation side of the industry. This is more internal affirm optimization from a business standpoint and but. But you can do it through this Lens, so we are interested in ensuring that the firm positions, it's brand in his able to market itself effectively to potentially strategic partners or any other place that where they're planning to make a move, so this is less about sort of beat. AC- demand generation. This is more about B. Two B. Demand Generation, one of the things that I really like where I see truly. Value Values that and I've said this multiple times internally and and declines as well as that. It's the system that allows firms to be able to generate or at least convey positive bias. When I mean by that is, you might have heard the life insurance company Health Iq. It may have seen this in your facebook feed. They're the ones that have the ads that say if you run at eight minute mile or each cycle fifty miles a week. You can save money on your life insurance. They do that because through this process with them, and because I'm a cyclist and I you straw vote. Track my cycling. Generally cycle between sixty to one hundred twenty miles a week and I share that data with a life insurance company. It was able to get a really aggressive quote because of that and they're doing that. Because health insurance companies determine their rates, basically on the lowest common denominator right there risk full really determines how much people pay, so if you're a health insurance company that is able to only attract the healthiest. Then you're able. You're going to be able to pass those savings onto them population and so I view true lyrics for an individual. Individual or an independent financial advisory firm as the Strada or the Apple Watch that is able to give you that traffic data that you're able to share them with a independent broker dealer that you want to switch to or affirm that you want to merge with to be able to show and be transparent about the health and wellness of your firm. There's not a lot of systems that do that, and so on one those in even if your, even if your numbers in our system, even if your key performance indicators aren't the best. That actually secondary from the fact that you went through the process to begin with if you're serious enough especially in this industry and Industry that's made up of really lifestyle businesses, and that's that's the challenge. That's faith that the industries faced with right now. You've got this great transition. Massive amount of baby boomers potentially are going to retire in the next fifteen years a massive amount of boomers that didn't really treat their business as a real business for. For a long time, and so this is a path to be able to start to do that. To take to be able to convey to any any player or any partner that you're wanting to engage with that. You're taking your business seriously that you've been able to assess the health and wellness that here's the data shows where both on thriving as well as where I might need assistance, and and that then I believe put you in different. Sort of population of maybe other firms that haven't taken those steps that don't have that information that aren't sincere about really optimizing their business for that critical transition time. So I always go back to the marketing mind right, and so a part of that is just because that's just how my brain works, but but it also works with. How do we reduce the? And the fears and the. Discomfort of financial services professionals so that they can focus on what they truly focus on. So if I'm acquiring a practice right, so if I'm going through all of this and I'm looking at the health and wellness over practice acquiring because there's going to be a lot of those here in the next ten years me, there are a lot of people are getting out of the Biz right and if you have the opportunity to say, oh, my Gosh, well, this is this is a much healthier practice. This here are the things that they need to work on part of my unique ability. Your competence than when you go to start marketing to your new audience is going to be way higher because you have a much better. Looking under the and so Jeremy, so that's been one of the issues that I've had. David and I had a really fun conversation about this on our last podcast. was you know really asked about? How do you look under the hood right and they have a very comprehensive question, but you're talking about looking under the hood. You're talking about like doing A. Plug in diagnostic on your car and really getting a good. Is that a good analogy? So so that's a that's a great analogy, and that's where we are right now where we're headed is taking that a couple of altitudes up for several altitudes up where we're looking to really zillow FI, the entire session space within wealth management right I think that's one of the things that zillow succeeded. APP At expedia succeeded at that glass door expedient. exceeded. That was making. Common Knowledge Common. And, so yes, right now in order for someone to really extract value out of our system, they long in they go through seven intake process they get these detailed diagnostics and they have a road map on how to increase the value of their firm as well as then that then it's then tied to an emergency continuity solution, so all of that data's than associated with the locker, and all of that data is then associated with your match profile. Right what we WANNA do and we're headed and what will probably be able to roll out by the end of the year is? Really take that from out. Take that from. An experienced. That's right now. Inside the four walls of true Lennox. In. You have to subscribe to see to really becoming more transparent we're. We have a database of seven thousand five hundred. Independent financial advisory firms were able to make pretty accurate estimates on the overall value of the entire independent industry, and so pulling together more public pages dislike, Zilog it about the the overall value of your house and it's an estimate generally always lower than what you think it is, but it's they've got what public landing pages associated with every house in the United States related to what that looks like given the amount of transitions that are about to happen in this space. Given that space that has an overdependence on consultants and professional services to assist with those transitions. We're headed towards the path of. Again that mantra of making uncommon knowledge common, and so if we can help the industry, elevate and be able to understand where everyone sits, and from an estimate standpoint allow those people to be able to not only see that be able to connect being able to work on that together. Then we see that it's essentially being a big driving force in the. In the in the coming soon Nami of It's GonNa. BE A. Wave isn't it man? So you use the word subscribers, and one of the things that I'm sure you've experienced as much as anybody. WHO's infant Fintech at all is is adoption right and A lot of advisors are older on the scale and some of them aren't as tech savvy. So how are you making the interface or the process as convenient as something like zillow so that you're not gonna get that technological resistance. Well I even have data around the swing, bought the intellectual property from the Investment Bank back in two thousand sixteen, and launched it in two thousand seventeen. We launched it as is, and that was a a soft, basically a web application that really wasn't optimized for the best experience and me with Mike Marking background in especially within my marketing background. I think I've boughten I bought three or four user. USABILITY agencies globally in my lifetime, so I I used to have a staff of fifteen PhD's that used to work for me around this? And so I take it very seriously, and it was one of the things that always bugged me about the Ip when we bought it I, said. This is one it's. It doesn't even meet current standards to given our population of hoover dealing with it's going to make things even worse and then three weren't online We offer online tool. This is our our brand is tied with. With that experience, so it's not a website in the application. It's not just about the storefront and about the sign age. It's really about everything about what's on the shelf in them. What you bring to the register and then how you use that product afterwards, all of that is so intrinsically tied together with online business that we had a really take a step back and redesign the entire experience and we did that we did that from the middle of two thousand seventeen through the middle of two thousand eighteen, and in that timeframe, our monthly reoccurring revenue was probably like. One thousand five hundred dollars a month when we launched the new experience in the middle of two thousand eighteen between the middle of two thousand eighteen in the middle of two thousand nineteen, and this again is purely driven really around an enhanced user interface that made the application a lot easier to use as well as having an enterprise focus. We went from fifteen. M are two hundred twenty thousand dollars a month in monthly reoccurring revenue, so the data right there tells you. Enough. So that drove the demand but but we still really require a lot of work with our enterprise customers, the practice management group in assessing Chris to educate all of all of the users on the value of the platform helped them in many cases in areas, in which they potentially still get stuck, and then throughout the entire thing. Make sure that we have A. A customer success team that is on really ready six able to answer any specific question. Anyone has any given time and we've done I. think a very good job at that. Last year we ended we. We measure our net promoter score on a quarterly basis and seventy five is considered world class. We ended two thousand nineteen at a seventy, and that is unheard of. In financial services yeah so. It doesn't mean we're out of the woods, I, mean it's it's a constant. It's it's. It's definitely a journey. And so we still have a lot more. We know we need to do well. Let let's Let's let's a pause and take a look at your journey a little bit more right, so you said the Enron, habits cycler right What what what turns you on about that? so I used to be a track and field die in. Back in the eighties and early nineties I grew up in in Northern Indiana I. Think you if I. Read Your Info vilely. my mind. Father actually went to Western this again, and I spent a half my childhood in Kalamazoo. Guy In so so anyway during this time I, was big traffic guy, and then I got into rowing in college, and did a lot of rowing after college, which I loved a, and then had my soul startup experience, and married late, and had my first obviously my only marriage in my. I think we got married. When I was forty right, we met when I was like thirty seven are we had our first children when we're forty forty one there now obviously seven nine years old, but being in my early to mid forty S, and in my third startup. I realized that I had stopped working out. I needed to find something to do to get back into the state that used to be in, and my wife's thankfully bought me a Peleton for Christmas three years ago, and that happened at the same time that we had a neighbor move into a next door, actually a financial adviser who had just retired at forty eight years old and now decided to spend his retirement cycling, and so he heard I gotTa Peleton. He was all about cycling so I got a road by showed me the ropes and. What happened so now with with being a serial entrepreneur I'm sure that there are missteps that you have made. So, let's talk about some of the things that you've learned. Because a lot of our listeners, a you know have obeys outside business activities right. They have other businesses that they're involved in. And when you look back on on your cereal entrepreneurship, what are some of the biggest lessons that you think that you've learned that? Our audience could find benefit in. So one is to mean as an entrepreneur. You're going to embarrassingly have successes and failures I've had both. In the most dramatic ways possible like the best successes and I've got worse failure and one of the things that I've learned in that whole experience is really to not be so hard on myself about that. That's probably been the biggest lesson I've learned as an entrepreneur that with seeing both the good times and the bad. Rich really during those bad times. That I I originally took those failures personally. Versus viewing them as an invaluable education right, and indeed those times more than any other times it was those times that played such an instrumental role in all of my successes today, so that that took a while I mean I started for narrow career when I was twenty three years old here I am forty nine and so. The twenty-three-year-old Jeremy that twenty eight year old German thirty five year old Jeremy men ended. I struggle a lot with. Trying to rationalize failure in here I am now closing fifty and I'm like. Why did I ever spend the time stressing about that? So. To to to begin to wrap up today's podcast And before the opportunity for for people to find out how to connect with you an NBA involved with with your system here You've obviously learn from those mistakes right and so you. What are some of the things? If if somebody says you Jeremy. What's the Best Business Book you've read her or Jeremy What's the best tedtalk you've ever heard her? What do you find? Is that one thing that you give away like all the time as that one thing that you think was a huge key component of your success. So I would urge everyone to read the infinity game by Simonson. And that is a business book that really is focused on the idea of stay in the game. Always stay in the game. Run Your Business so that you've got the runway to stay in the game. That's all that's what it's about so. if you need to make hard decisions about your ex need to make hard decisions about the financial situation of your firm so that by yourself more time. Do that you have to do that I failed to do that in some early start ups in those. That's what drove a lot of my I would say a lot of failures that I had is that I didn't have that mindset that the whole thing. The whole point of the startups is to play the game in play the game until you win, and you have to make every decision you possibly can do keep yourself in that and I think that book is is a Bible on that whole topic so I would highly recommend it well. So my follow up question to that is. How do you win? Right so. Winning mean to you, I, mean you've you've said that you've you know you've had missed up so so with this system that you guys have truly what what is a win for you? How do you know that you've crossed that? Finish line, and you're like dude. I did it. So I've already won in some respects, so half of it has one I. Wake up every morning. Not Believing that I make people pay me to do what I do. That's half the battle is is doing that you do that? That's the secret to life. You just like if you're doing what you do and you do it well and people pay you to do that, that's i. that's a win in my book now. I would love to see exit with True Lennox if we get acquired by A. Huge, wealth management enterprise or big tech platform, the wealth management space than that obviously adds the financial security that everyone's looking to have. That affords me more time to spend with my wife and children. Then that's the other side of the equation is spending more time with family and having the freedom to do that I would say. The third leg of that stool would be then to give back to the community as much as I. Possibly can so again being happy with what you do spending. Spending time with your family and having the resources to do that so and and then being able to give back as much as people have given me throughout. My whole life is is really what I would see a success well Almenda that brother, that's absolutely fantastic and and I think that's truly what the majority of people are looking for so now if somebody wants to reach out to you and in get involved in intro lyrics, what is the best way for that you the them to do that? Just go to true dot com. There is a contact form there that people could fill out. Get sent both to me as well as my business partner Gary Mullen. WHO's the CEO? We would get that immediately. You could find me on Lincoln Twitter facebook social platforms I'm there again. It's J R. E M I. How, parents cited to spell my name, which I'm. Grateful for 'cause it's unique. But but you can look me up Jeremy Cornell on any of those platforms, still free to connect with me in any way shape or form Mike email is Jeremy at Trulia cst dot. COM So. Jeremy that. We have links in our show notes for all of that. Thanks Dude. This was a fascinating to me. I hope that the the line of questioning that I had for. You was good, but I do WanNa say that my favorite question which I have not asked you that to wrap up today's podcast is. Is there something I should have asked you because I do prepare for these and I WANNA. Make sure that I'm covering all of my basis. Were there any questions I should've asked you that I didn't that. You think our audience share. So. That's my. So. Yeah, so I would. I would ask. Why this is important for enterprises why what we're doing is so important for the wealth management, industry and specifically wealth management enterprises. I was what I said earlier about the fact that our systems both reduced time and cost related transitions. Take a look at as well as anyone in the front office or any executive of part of these enterprises that is facing. All of these transitions as a potential massive impact on your business, look at your systems look at the time in the costs associated with the traditional way. You're going about managing transitions. From recruiting practice management always session. And if that's not an if anything, the pandemic taught us. It's how important digital platforms are in keeping businesses sustainable, even through rough times than I would highly recommend that when you go through that assessment. Look at Rolodex and look at new ways to be able to manage Processes that have traditionally been pretty professionally services trigger, and and if that can help, both you retain both attract. Grow as well as than retain those assets. That's the win so. Fantastic Jeremy Thank you so much for being a guest on the show.

When Christmas was Banned
"Welcome to hidden history. I'm your host cat crumb today when Christmas was banned. was there a time in American in history. When Christmas was banned the answer is a resounding. Yes that takes the question of course bandit imply while the final weeks serve every year. See the war on Christmas. Returned to television paddle debates newspaper columns in the United States bringing claims that American modern society has progressively marginalized monetize and turned against public expression of Christianity at one time both American and English History Christmas. This was regarded as a pagan holiday. It's true that the celebration of Christmas was banned in colonial Massachusetts in sixteen fifty nine. That ban was is motivated largely by the Austere Puritan religious beliefs of authority to the colony. Who objected to the December. Twenty fifth celebration for two reasons seasons because it was originally a Pagan Winter Festival Co op by Christians and lacking in any biblical basis and because it it was typically accompanied by Merriment and indulgence. Therefore was opposite to the puritan principles. Sobriety and hard work. Christmas Muss was only ever illegal from sixteen fifty nine until sixteen eighty one and not thereafter and the ban was limited to the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Still why Ban Christmas in Sixteen Forty Four lawmakers passed an ordinance which called for December twenty fifth to be a day of Solemn humiliation rather than Karnal sensual delights which it characterizes celebration of Christmas not to mention pagan rituals lighting candles and decorating doors. Okay so who were these lawmakers. They were Christian. PURITANS who motivated by beliefs chiefs of authorities in the colony and who objected to the December. Twenty fifth celebration even after public. Commemoration of Christmas was once again legal elsewhere. It remained firmly on the books of Massachusetts for tired generation. As being illegal it was in sixteen twenty that the pilgrims mm slanted Plymouth. Nine years later that the puritans arrived in Salem the two groups merged and as one spread across England. But the difference about how to worship split the two groups New Hampshire Connecticut Maine drew lines separating themselves from Massachusetts blinds at later became came state borders but it was Rhode Island where the true religious freedom was born for an individual could worship as they pleased without fear of fine fine or persecution.

The Authority: The Scholar
"The world's changing they've all sensed in the prophecy is clear onto used to protect the go boy wherever they are. Something happened as well. People going to be literally fast and i'm looking for a girl. Lyra welcome to the authority. Slates his dark materials. Podcast it season two episode five the scholar. We're resident scholars of experimental theology. I'm dan choice on a writer at slate. And my demon is in prairieville named gilda. I'm laura miller. I'm books and culture columnist for slate and my demon is a sea otter named sake in this episode lyra and will steal the elite theater. Back from lord boreal karnal mcphail begins the great magisterial purge. Mary malone goes on a trip. And mrs coulter considers bluejeans a lot of exciting things happening in this episode. We're gonna go in-depth today into the scholar of the title or really the scholars because this episode makes the argument. That you can't talk about mary malone thou talking about mrs coulter as always on the authority were talking about the world's of his dark materials. Without spoiling the story of his dark materials will fill in some blanks. Talk about the way. The book treats these scenes and investigate characters. But we won't discuss what's in store so unless you're allergic to knowing anything outside the bounds of the tv show. You should find our podcast spoiler free and we're here to answer your question if you've got a burning question about his dark materials and he can't figure out how to ask your leafy ometer. Email asked the authority at slate dot com this week. We've got the same question from two different listeners. Dan lici air. And david hendricks they both want to know if the windows are just sitting there. The wind is between the world that is why haven't more people walked through them. Can only some people see them. Well dan and dave this week's episode. Mrs coulter asks basically the same thing. Of course lord boils like oh no no one else could ever be as smart as me and find the windows. But he's wrong. People do find these windows all the time. When does the previous bearers bears before will left. Open john perry found one. For example he found it because it had existed in frozen north of alaska for centuries the eskimos according to the book said used at all that time as part of an initiation ceremony for medicine men and also cats find them a right cats find the will finds his first one because catwalks right through it right but for the most part the bear seemed to have been careful to cut the windows and inconspicuous places like the wilds of alaska. Although the one that will finds in the book in the subtle knife the one that the catwalks through isn't in alaska it isn't even the protected little garden of the tv show. It's on kind of a median island in the middle of sunderland avenue in oxford. Right where it intersects. The oxford ring road. You can look up this location on a map and see that the On google street view the hornby trees are still there. The hornby trees that The philip holman describes. Here's how the window is described in the subtle knife. When will finds it and this might help listeners. Understand why it is that more people. Don't walk through these windows all the time. It looked as if someone had cut a patch out of the air about two yards from the edge of the road. A patch roughly square in shape and less than a yard across if you level with a patch that it was edge on it was nearly invisible and it was completely invisible from behind you could see at only from the side nearest the road. And you couldn't see it easily even from there because all you could see through it was exactly the same kind of thing that lay in front of it on this side. A patch of grass lift by streetlight. The wheel new without the slightest doubt that the patch of grass on the other side was in a different world yet. Nevertheless as we've pointed out he only sees it because he sees the cat walked through it so arguably it's hard to see the windows unless you're actually looking for them. There's a reason for you to be looking for one there. I think that that could be the case Since so much of how. The subtle knife works has to do with being in a certain frame of mind right. Dust looks for you. If you're looking for it. Rob and even john perry who says to lease be that he walked through that first window in alaska by accidents while sort of getting lost in a blizzard was looking for windows. He may have been himself ben in that frame of mind. If you go looking for something it comes to you as well so by this theory. So let's talk about this episode and all that happens in it we're going to get to deep dive on. Mary malone and mrs cl tournament. But i want to start out by talking about the action centerpiece of this episode. Which is the heist lyra wills heist of the elite theater from sir charles. Lash rooms extremely fancy house. They figure out that lack trump's house corresponds in his world and his oxford with the location of the tower and sheet the gaza in the world that they're hanging out in will finally after a lot of experimentation not to to strain at the knife he's trying to lift a bookcase. He learns to just be chill about it and he starts to get better at cutting these windows between worlds. We should also be clear that sir trials lateran and lord boreal are the same guy. Oh yeah use them. Interchangeable you sir. Charles latch room when he's being particularly stuffy rich. And he's lord boreal when he's flirting with mrs coulter.

He has like a few difficulties at first but then he masters it or he at least succeeds at it. And there's even a scene where In this episode where pans has always getting good at this a lyra says he is and paradisea. The former former knife bear complimented will on how quickly learns to use it. There's something about will. And lyra that enables them to use these artifacts like the elite. The ometer and the knife almost instinctively. Or let's say intuitively. When other different people have to work very hard at it and partly this is because both devices have intentions of their own. The knife chooses will as its spare and the elite theon litter clearly sees an important purpose for lyra in the greater scheme of things that she's caught up in much in the same way that the witches prophecy does but and this is an an important point will and lyra are still children and the other people we see trying to learn how to use the elite theater and the knife are adults. We'll find out later why that distinction is so important. It's interesting to think about the devices having intentions of their own. And it's also interesting to think that it's possible. Those intentions are at the same. That'll be the arbiter and the knife seemed to be operating under similar principles. And maybe even by similar mechanisms. That doesn't mean that they they want the same things necessarily in that becomes an issue later on the story so entry to gaza eh While they're while was practicing the knife and while they're trying to figure out where they should be cutting these windows they run into tulio. Who's now the shell of his former self. Because he's been eaten by spector's consoled or at least plucked at by his sisters angelica and paolo and they are pissed at what has happened to him and pissed. When byron will foolishly start apologizing for it Angelica says will get you. Yes they blame will and lyra because We'll has the knife in the knife was the only thing that was protecting tulio from the specter. Said they consider will and lyra to have done this tulio an important point for pullman and one that he makes over and over again in this book is that children may be innocent in some sense but they are not necessarily good in this book in particular we see children behaving malevolent ways and frightening ways and this is something that will says more than once he has seen just as the result of having his mentally ill mother you know either being ostracised by by other kids or actually witnessing kids picking on his mother so he has seen the dark side of children in a way that even lyra hasn't Yes although children who deal with iran. Oxford maybe feel that they have seen that our children through that goes after them. So that night will and lyra enact their plan which has basically to cut their way from the gaza world into lord orioles house with hopefully without him ever knowing that they're doing it. The knife is a really good tool for hosting which. Maybe i mean. Come to think of it. The whole reason. That lord boyle watson in the first place so lyra rings the doorbell to distract him while we'll sneaks into the basement library but everything gets all thrown awry when mrs coulter discovers him trying to get the leafy honor and boy. Does this seem high. Seen divers from the book it really does in the book lyra and will have this sort of elaborate sort of scheme and they use the knife to creep stealthily around lord orioles house moving between this world and she's a gaza and back again so they can be completely unseen. It's it's just a like a stealth video game in a way And and in the process of doing this the eavesdrop on a conversation between boreal and coulter which reveals a lot of can formation. Such as what as real is up to which is something that doesn't even come up in this episode. And the fact that his anomaly in the book has changed the windows between the world so that it's now possible for people to travel from lila's world directly to will's world without going through cheetah gaza the series probably pretty sensibly is decided to just forget that whole development Lord boreal also explains in the book that he's been working as a spy and wills world and that's the source of sort of his power and influence in the series. He started a company so he's like a startup guy which is just two tiny. Why he's driving. Tesla helps to clarify the exact kind of asshole. he's turning into. Yeah so while will is sort of hiding and trying to locate the elite theater. So he can snatch it in the book and also in the series the golden monkey discovers him and there's a lot of rushing around and chasing and the and the golden monkey almost causes lyra to be captured but then the cat that will and lyra saved in chita gaza from being a you know the children were were tormenting it that cat attacks the monkey and then jokes expect through the window back to chita. Gaza will is definitely a person who is much favored by cats so in the in the in the book the two of them escape. And there's not really any real interaction between lyra and her mother that is put off for yet another day let alone a battle between their demons. So yeah here instead we get a whole scene a confrontation between mrs cool. Turn lyra in. Which mrs coulter seems to be holding out a kind of olive branch in the form of the leafy honor. She offers to give her the leafy ometer. She says she wants to teach her about dust. Seems like what she wants us to bond with lyra to reclaim her. In some way perhaps inspired by in the steps. She's had with boreal end with mary malone and she tells her stay away from that boy she will do nothing but harm which suggests shades of her own past the way that her dalliance with israel ruined her prospects in her world. Ira says i'm nothing like you. And she hisses at mrs culture and then pan leaps. The monkey demon. You know this sort of answers a question. You had from an early episode which question you wanted to know how big demons could get when they were still changeable well pan turns into a sake. What do you think that is fisher. No to gray honey. Badger turned into one of those ones. Great teeth doesn't give a cetera on the top of their heads style wolverine. Maybe that seems right anyway. When you're changeable and you go on the attack you get as big as you can get so that wolverine or whatever it is has got to be about the upper limit of pants size. I mean sure works because he really throws that monkey around laura. What do you think about this big change to the book. I say i don't really love the scene. And it's particularly for the fight between the demons. Which i just feel is too intense of a confrontation at a sort of middling point in the plot. I mean it is true that there is nothing that will make a girl more angry than to tell her that she's like her mother but to me it feels like it could have been played way down although i also feel like. I'm also the person who who doesn't care about fight scenes and generally views them as a as a really great time to head into the kitchen looking for a snack so i may not be the right person. I really liked this version. Actually and i'm. I'm the one who's often complaining about the ship. Bud you know the the sort of ocean's eleven style sneaky theft that's in the books intricate and fun. But i found this much more exciting and scary. Both her encounter with mrs coulter and wills encounter with boreal and the exchange between mrs coulter. Lyra seems revelatory for lyra right. Who later says she should doesn't like the way that she felt when pan attack the demon and it's really re watching it as is not that much of a fight. it is this wolverine. Just fucking tossing. Monkey around is a reversal of that scene. Where the the monkey subdues pan in. Mrs coulter's flat in london right and. She says she doesn't like that feeling. But it seems to me that for whatever it is that the series has cooking up for mrs coulter relationship with lyra which seems to me to be may be very different from what the books cook for the the culmination of their relationship. This seems to me to be a potentially important moment. And so let's zip back to the beginning of this episode and talk about what mrs coulter has gone through in her visits to our oxford so boreal brings her to oxford. And he's giving her. He's bringing her the best coffee and oxford and she's looking at all of these people who seem to the well who can tell she sees a woman with a laptop and a baby. There's obviously a lot going on in her head. Looking at this alternate version of the world and mean mile lord boreal who has always seemed so family smooth just becomes a complete dork. you know. And he's boasting about his stupid collection and he showing off his stereo speakers. No less. I mean the only way they could have made it. Worse was by giving him a collection of electric guitars and having show tour but Of all of his games. His seduction game is drastically remedial. He has no idea seduce a woman especially woman like mrs coulter and she is really unimpressed. I will say these sound out of his speakers is really extraordinary as he says. But yes you're right. It's like the only thing that could have been worse is if he pulled out his vinyl play a little something for for those who are curious that smooth track that he has chosen as a popular london. Soul duo from the mid ninety s called. The lighthouse family had no impact whatsoever in the united states. A very popular briefly in the nineties in the uk is definitely what would be playing in the lounge to am. What mrs coulter is interested in is not lord boreal but it is his mention of mary malone and the fact that lyra was interested enough in mary malone to stop by her lap so she decides she wants to meet her and boreal insists that she changes her clothes because mary malone would definitely be suspicious if fem vitol step straight out of a film nawar and showed up in her office. This episode answers. The eternal question would mariscal to wear jeans and the answer is no she analogy. No no no. There's a great little moment in the scene. Where she's about she's about to change and she served shoes out of the room and boreal stand. He makes this little sound. Which is her trademark mannerism. You know you could. You could make a super cut of mrs coulter going. I gotta say general. This episode is the most comedy rich of any episodes so far. Like just this little scene of her you know cruising jeans fantastic and the comedy i think only continues when mrs coulter locks her monkey demon in the bedroom so she can head off to the college on her own comedy. Beg to differ. Dan yes guild is supposed demon would not enjoy the scene at all. It's positively cruel what she does to that. Poor monkey wait. Are you seriously implying that you feel sorry for the monkey. He's a perversion of self respecting. Beeman but isn't he what his human has made him. I mean isn't mrs coulter self hatred. What makes him act that way. He's still has a choice. a- could behave better. Look i'm no fan of the monkey but this episode is so mean to him locking him in a bedroom getting attacked and thrown around by pan. That's awful and making him wear a seatbelt. Don't you dare laugh at that. I always wear a seatbelt and laura and driving the car. It's just safer so cute and his little harness totally humiliating. Oh god so. After her makeover. Mrs coulter stops by mary. Malone's lab and like the encounter episodes back between mrs cl turnley scores. Be this scene in. The series is a complete invention it does not appear on the books. So we're going to focus on it and this week's deep dive because i think it's useful to think about. Who is mary malone. And what does her life. tell us about. The life of mrs coulter so laura. We know that mary moloney used to be done before she became a scientist. She talked aligarh about that. The show gives her a sister and nieces but no other strong family connections romantic connections. So what do we know about dr. Mary malone without spoiling too much about what we might learn about her later. Is it about her. That makes her your favorite character. Well what i love about. Mary is her curiosity. And we talked in the last episode. About what pullman considers to be goodness in a person and i think that this quality curiosity is part of that. But there's a difference between the sort of open curiosity of mary malone and the more directed curiosity of say lord boreal or mrs coulter even lord azriel. Mary isn't after power glory. She's not single-minded she's not blinkered the way those characters are. There's the sort of patient humility to her curiosity. She wants to understand the world around her and she also wants to understand her effect on it. She is not the type to tear whole between the universes without considering the consequences to the world or creatures besides herself and s- precisely because she's opened in this way that she's able to read elite grasp. That lyra is from another world. I mean mary's not a fool. She mistrusts lord boreal. She knows the paleface man is up to no good but she has this openness to what she sees that is in some ways the essence of of a of a scientist and she doesn't insist on imposing an existing framework on it. So she's she's willing and able to make the leap to appreciating who lyra really is in the book a lot of openness assertive presented in these little asides of well. We're about to lose our funding. So i might as well or while. This wouldn't even be the weirdest thing that's happened to me today. So i guess i'll give it a try you know. I guess i'll have my itching up to the to the To the computers cave But i think it's not only that and i agree with you that is openness and curiosity is the difference between hurricanes of science and the quote unquote science alert azriel is pursuing which is really a single minded quest for something which we don't quite know what it is yet you know he has. He's makes a lot of big statements but what it is he actually intends to do is sort of between him and his demon I what i really like about her. As well as the way that her open mindedness seems to track with the the the muddiness of the thing that she's studying right these. These shadow particles are themselves and mysteries. That only come to you when you open yourself up as she says when you open your mind and a particular way in order to observe them there observing you as much as you're observing them and i liked that this character known about her this openness and curiosity is the exact reason why when lead gently in the right direction by lyra. She is the person the dust chooses to communicate with in the way that does and of course she's in the right place she's got the lab and the computers and everything but it's clear that the dust does this because she's right she's the person who dust feels is. The is the right person to take the next step the giant step the marian takes in this episode and And you mentioned that. She's no fool but she also is open to new experiences an open to new ideas and so that's why it's very touching to see the scene between mary moloney. Mrs cooler in which mary malone is cautious with mrs cooler but she's also interested in her. She's interested in what this what she believes to be the scientist and what she believes to be the mother of this extraordinary person who she met lyra silver tongue. What this person might offer her what she might be able to lean to learn from us. Let's listen to a little bit of this scene between mary and mrs coulter. I wanted to apologize to you. In person. in case she was a nuisance wasn't a nuisance in the slightest. I love to meeting era. It was the most interesting conversation. I've had an address the ideas. She has what i do is about the morality of dark matter or What she calls dosed her grasp on quantum physics is astonishing and the compass relationship. Yes how she's able to understand it. I have no idea. it's extraordinary. What do you think it means. Mrs coulter to hear these things about lyra from this to her very odd person as female scholar. I think she realizes that in a way she knows lyra that. She's never really had a conversation with her. That would enable her to see what mary seen in lyra when the two of them briefly live together in london. Mrs coulter treated lyra like a sort of mini. Me you know. She was basically instructing her on how to be like her and that is how to control herself how to be feminine and the three conventional way and how to regard the world as she does you know like a a sort of network of advantages that she can latch onto if she skillful enough So this is like a problem that some parents have this inability to perceive their children as independent people and not just as extensions of themselves. And it's in line with mrs cultures idea that that there was really only one kind of person that she could be and therefore only one person that lyra could be so talking to this person who has seen lyra in this completely different way and who comes from a completely different idea and is an expression of a completely different idea of what women can be in this world. I think is a really potent moment from mrs coulter on a couple of different levels as she starts to think about not only that she never really saw lyra and barely knows her but that the version as you say of herself that she was presenting to lyra is a version that she is becoming more and more disillusioned with and mary asked mrs culture to tell her more about her research. Experimental theology which of course she's never heard of because it doesn't exist in her She asked her what she's published. Yasser the questions that scientists ask each other when they respect each other when they're genuinely curious in each other's work and as soon as that happens mrs coulter's out the fucking door and this scene. Are you know in a in a way. Similar to the coulter lease scores seen plays a little bit like fan fiction kind of right. It's two characters who never meet but you're curious about what would happen if they do me. In fact i. I went straight over to An archive of our own to see if such fan fishing exists and there is in fact story written just a couple of weeks ago at least one. That is a version of this very encounter. Mrs coulter showing up at mary. Malone's office to talk to her now. That scene is a bit more sexually charge. As is the tradition often in fan fiction But it's it has similar dynamics and and plays with similar things and so it was so fascinating for me to see this. And i really liked it as an addition to this world. What did you think of this edition in this world. I i really liked this to one. Of course ruth wilson amazing actress and in her face. We see so many things we see one. You know her realization that the daughter that she loves so much she barely knows. We see to her picking up this paper with mary. Malone's name on it. And in that she is feeling just the loss and the waste of her her talents and her intellect i mean she is sort of on top in her own world images always so elegant and poised in command However suddenly she you know exerts her power but mary really makes her feel inadequate. And then another thing that i. i'm just realizing as i think about. This is that she. Also there's you know she leaves when mary says. Oh make you a cup of coffee. Let's sit down and talk and it made me think about whether mrs coulter has any friends. And i don't think she really does and so she's also possibly seeing someone who in another life could have been her friend another better version of herself. You know just all the things that make this woman who seem so desirable and so Quipped and and and effective you know just feel completely broken in inadequate. Yeah i think that's exactly right. And i've never really thought about whether mrs coulter has friends because how could creature so elevated even need friends. She has her social circle. That comes to the party by. I don't think that she has anyone really to talk to. And and unlike everyone else in her world she doesn't even really have her demon to talk to she doesn't have that lifelong companion who everyone is supposed to have. So she's even more isolated than anyone also in her world as in the notion of just sitting down with this person who if she had lived a different life could have just been a colleague or friend or someone she just likes to shoot the shit about experimental theology with his painful for her in You see these these losses sort of piling up and they all come out in a way in the conversation afterwards that she seen between culture and boreal in the library in which lord boreal ashur. Well what did you think of. Mary malone and her answer and the way that boreal interprets that answer is really fascinates me. Let's listen to a little bit of that moment out due to climate in patent tree. I found it like many women in this world. Do you find me. Of course take a breath clearly. Did you know when i was on reese gotta. I achieved the highest results in our final examination. But because i was a woman i was denied a doctorate by the majesty. I've written plenty of papers only published. If i agreed that a man take the credit. So i'm so interested by what is happening to mercer coulter right now is a right before this scene. We see her rejecting her. Monkey demon. sorry gilded. That's what she does right after the scene is the moment where lyra and will break in and we see her make this kind of offering to her daughter. So what do you think the show is doing with his character. What direction is pointing her in and learn. You think that it works. Well i mean there's two ways to look at this as we talked about in the last episode. Mrs coulter is being confronted by one figure after another who represents an alternate path. She might have taken the witches in their freedom. Lee scores be in his ability to get past the abuse in his past and not perpetuated and now mary malone who isn't rich or powerful or glamorous like culture but who has been able to fulfil herself in a way. Mrs coulter has never been able to. So when she's looking at lyra she could either see finally an opportunity for connection and to be genuine into be nurturing and to be a mother. I mean we do see her looking at a mother with a baby stroller at the beginning of the episode or she could be seeing in lyra version of herself with all that potential encourage. And maybe that's who alive. We're really is but lyra does not want to be told that she's like her mother and if she weakens at all during that offer. You know i'll teach you about. Dust is not completely clear to me that that lyra is a wannabe scholar. So i don't know how even genuine this reaching out is if if she is not if mrs culture is nine fact reaching out to sort of the girl she wants was more than to the girl that lyra actually is certainly genuine unsensitive as of right. Now it's all that coulter knows about her. Yes yes it's true. It's true she. That liar has been going to the to the lab and and talking to mary malone asking about dust and learning about dust but she had she lived with lyra for awhile and liar is not i guess lyra will maybe eventually become a scholar but the child. She's she is right now as more of an adventurer than anything else. So it's you could look at it either way. I think it's open to both interpretations but what is clear is that the meeting with mary. Jo malone has just really cracked mrs coulter open and after that she has to go back to lord boreal 's layer and he's just fatuous in the way he patronizes her and views as collectible and it causes her to lash out at him in a way that she hasn't so far in the past. I think you're right that this meeting has been crucial for her. And i think that the scholars plural that are the subject of this episode Going to continue to be very important in watching the directions that they go from this meeting. I think it's going to be good. To view this meeting is an inflection point for each of them and that the the pass it sends them on are gonna be crucial to the way that this series ends and the way that the series views though the roles that its primary grown women can play in the future of the the world's that it encompasses so yes so boyle doesn't take the hints from mercy coulter. She continued that she is just not the lady for him and he straight up says like in showing you all this. I was showing you this. Because i thought this might be a life that you would want to share. First of all you He's already made it clear. He does not like arrogant women as he used the women of of this world. And second of all. We've had a bunch of questions about laura boreal throughout. We tried untangle him a little last episode. Are there new things that we learn about him. Here what what does this episode. Tell us about carlo oriole. I ain't it confirms that he is some kind of profiteer that he's the collector that is attitude towards mrs coulter is that of a collector accuses him of and he just you know his inability to see that. Of course. she's incredibly arrogant. How could he not think she was arrogant. And has not been paying any attention at all so it could be just that. He's just way more of an idiot than he seemed. Before i mean i feel like this episode really flips him. I guess you know this is partly a symptom of what pullman himself sometimes called his potemkin village approach to like world belting. He would get questions from fans about aspects of libraries world. How demons work and there were questions. He'd never considered because as he often put it. He wants to create enough of a world to macon environment for the story to move forward. But he's not like one of these model railroad. Biller builder tight authors like. Jr tolkien's he. He just wants to move the story forward and i have a feeling that while he was mostly talking about the environments in the setting for his novels it might also be the case that lord boreal is a bit of a potemkin village character and a potemkin villages. Maybe i should explain that. It's like the false fronts of old western buildings that were used as sets for movie productions when people didn't want to have to build the whole building and it was something that was set up when as our i don't know which one was traveling around russia people would put up these villages that looked these fake villages that looked great so that the czar would be would be complacent about the excellent condition of the russian countryside when exactly the opposite case. Yeah you know. I do think that you're potentially right that. In that this character serves various needs for phillip pullman. To just get things moving and that that's the kind of character who often seems the most inconsistent in an adaptation. The character who who's a purely applaud character. But who when you when you he's inhabited by an actual living breathing actor particularly good actor just like doesn't track exactly And as we've said on the books he's much more of a doofus and in this scene he seems much more under even under mrs coulter spell not even wooing her just sort of like bewitched by her And that happens again and again to him. And so i think that hunting for characterization that remains consistent for lord boreal this story may be maybe a hunch that will just disappoint people. But maybe there's some maybe there's some thing that still awaits him. That will surprise us in this series. They certainly have a good enough actor for at that. If there's some turn he's gonna take the we don't understand. I believe that this actor can absolutely pull it off meat. So i agree. Yeah so after the stolen Now explains to mrs coulter. Why he thinks they can't go after. The children in gaza explains about specter's that they inhabit this world and that they get adults and its when. He says that they get adults. Not children the. Mrs coulter makes this connection between inspectors and dust and she says something curious something that seems like. It's going to have ramifications. Well once you understand something you can master it. Yeah this series is in and the trilogy is kind of a long quest to understand dust and while it's true once you can understand something you are more likely to be able to master it but mastering dust seems like a pretty tall order while we'll see what she pulls off. Honey while over at the majesty cerium the fraud are already starting to rumble with discontent under the new cardinal mcphail. They're losing control of the north which is just blew up a bunch of their zeppelin's so cardinal mcphail pulls a stalin and Basically comes up with a pretext for a father graves of doubt and throwing them into the dungeons and then he orders from kabul. Who seems completely gormless in the scene to find out what. Mrs coulter is up to easing the theater. So we should have full results on that one and the next seven eight months and year. Mary moloney in her lab after her encounter with mrs coulter gets a message from dust. Let's listen to that message preparing for this. As known as you you make a journey which start when pay god so i checked the closing credits this week and i learned that this voice of dust the voice. We like so much it is the. I assume heavily processed voice of the actress sophie. Okay nato and that-that voice has a name. The name is not just the name as zephenia mysterious and exotic name. Mary does succeed obeying the dusk. Is her these orders. You must deceive the guardian. They all sound like the orders given to a character and a great math. But that's exactly what she does. Lord boreal has set up some kind of checkpoint at the Window where the horn beam trees are and she goes there and the guy who's guarding it and sh- she kind tricks him to think she's mrs coulter which is a nice touch She is the good mother. Figured mrs cultures bad and then she walks through the window and boom. She's in chita gaza the ease with which she fooled that guardians suggests that once again. Lord boreal sir. Charles latram may not be As clever as we once thought he was a judge. A person by the worth of the people he employs he seems to have a trump ability to find just the most hapless idiotic henchman and set them off in various jobs that they then completely failed to do in the books. There's actually the guard actually has a line. That's like well good thing. You're not married alone. Because i've been told to arrest her if i see her and she's like oh no i'm not her So mary moloney now. She's gaza Zephenia the voice promised her that you'd be protected presumably. She meant from specter's and boy do i hope she's right Because i do not want the series taking a turn and just immediately having mary moloney be devoured by spector's that would suck. i expect. We'll find out what happens in episode six malice. Please join us then for that episode. In the meantime talk to us. We want to hear from you on twitter.

I'm in the places where they would be able to get food to grasp that they might grace upon the sheet so that they might grow and he was also there to protect them from the things of nature that might be out there to try to destroy them. The shepherd was was a good shepherd and he took care of the lambs james and he led them right to where it would be of great benefit for them to be able to graze tobepal to get of water that it would that they could sustain that natural life and take care of them and that was the song we just singing. Save your lack of shepherd lead us. Is that our mind this morning. Have we come out this morning with the mind. We want to be led by jesus. Christ we wanna lay down our will and our way and we will be led by him. He says let us early. Turn to the quickly. Let us turn to the and if we see that we're straight out the path and we can see the shepherd and come back to the fold where he is to where he's leading his people he will take care of shepherd our savior like a shepherd leafs unless let that go in everything we do putting our faith and trust in him and not in maine not in ourselves but knowing he's the one that came here to the earth breath and hung on the cross. He's the one that overcame satan in everything for you and for me. There is nothing there is nothing that we could be tempted with that. He was not tempted with and he overcame even the death of the carl's and he overcame it and then he was risen out of that grave victorious over satan and he was here phone the earth that all the his disciples and made many others his followers could see him and know that he was alive and he told his people he carried them out believe out close to the shore and he lifted up his hands and he said i'm going back to my father and i will prepare place for you but you wait here until you are or in dude with power from on high the spirit of the holy ghost what he was talking about for them to remain there around jerusalem and i believe those disciples were 'obedient to that to what he had asked him to do and i believe they were there the day of pentecost and they were gathered together in their came rushing sound of a rushing mighty win and it filled them with that spirit of the holy ghost and then they were able to able to speak with new tongues. There was a new heart within them a new man a new spirit a new comforter. Is that where we are today to ask your question to ask yourself. You say that question. Are you there today. Just as the disciples in his followers were on that day of pentecost and are you filled with that spirit. Have you become that new man that new woman have you made aid that hundred and eighty degree turn from where your life was and put off the old man and accepted that new man accepted jesus christ as your savior. Have you repented truly repented of your scenes. Are you ready to stan dan before jesus christ you. Are you ready. Ask that again the end. Are you ready to stand before jesus christ. We will all be there. He has left his word here in this book for us to be able to read for us to be able to understand. I understand we have the best opportunity. I believe to know him. As any group of people that has ever lived on the earth i know that the opportunities of free gift and it was made manifest that each and every one doesn't matter are who they are where they are. They're able to receive that. They want to hear it. They won't accept it. They can a and they will but have we. We walking and with him today. That's the question on each one of us to be thinking about as we read today. I know that when i say that we have at the best opportunity i know that we have all the information we've got tremendous cloud of witnesses that we can read about we can see about <music> out we can see people we can hold them with our own hands that we feel like that is walking with jesus christ and we can understand what his word word. He has promised that i will give to you and understanding. I'll give to you a comforter. He's promised all those things and we know it and that's why i say we have a wonderful opportunity and it's all right before worse today. Are you accepting as we should food. Sometimes he concerns me a lot that see the natural things here and we can accomplish. Them greatly seemed like whatever we want to do a naturally we can accomplish those things. What about the spiritual part. Do we see that in our life today that i can go out and i can accomplish accomplished the spiritual things the things that i believe that god is asking for me and for you to do today. Are we able to go out and be victorious into accomplished wish that as we should if we aren't somethin- his wrong because he has promised i will never leave you. I'll give you all that. You need to do the work within you again. Go to the lord in prayer be begging constant. He says be instant in prayer and that's just wherever whenever in ever doesn't matter where you are doesn't matter what you're what you're involved in and be ready to just be asking him. What must i do lower in a not like one of the others. They're asking the disciples when the lord totally. I believe it was peter was telling him how he might how he would end up his life and peter said well. How about this other fellow. What's he gonna do. Lord told him he says that's not for you to be concerned learned about if i let him live to lower return. That's not for you to be concerned about you. Live as i would ask for you to live peter. Uh and that's what he's asking for each one of us today to look to him. Turn earn your sapone. Jesus and the things of this world will grow strangely dam in the light and the glory of his grace and i know that to be facts and i know that each and every one of us today need to to be looking close to him and not let things of this world terraced down we can allow little small trivial things to come into our lives offs to separate us from the word of god. He says take heed to the things you have heard word list at any time you should let them slip and he said hard not your heart is in the days of provocation. Not your heart is in the days and the son of went when the children of israel were brought out of the land of israel by the hand of god and all that he did for them and they harden their hearts against him and would not follow walla. He's commandments and they lost out francis very close thing with the saul. We've got the opportunity but there is a job for each and every one of us today wall all close to him and he will draw near to you resist satan and he has to flee see for me. Put our faith and trust in him unless walk with him turn. We've opened though this morning two corinthians ingen. We'll read their first corinthians. This is the fourth chapter the i believe. We'll read the third chapter. It's not very long but it talks about what we need. The things that we're talking about how we need to be spiritual and we need to get that carnal mind out of the way starting the first verse of the third chapter of first corinthians and brother and could not speak into a you as unto spiritual but of but as unto karnal even unto babes in christ i have fed with milk and not with meat meet for heather to you are not able to bear it neither yet now are you able paul's coming down pretty straightforward with this group of people because they were not in the position that they should have been spiritually and he says i could not speak to you the spiritual things because you could not understand handle. He says i beg you with milk of tried to bring you up. Give you the things as you were growing. As you were emphasis in the the truth i didn't put the strong made a phone you but he sees you aren't you did not grow you did not take that milk ed sincere milk of the word and grow spiritually where you could eventually then be able to gain and and hear and partake of a strong meet that he said the truth of god and how we should live our lives and friends. This can be us. He says i fade you with milk and not with me. Why could we not have the meat for your yet karnal. That's why they were not to get him. That's why they they were not able to receive the strong meat and grow spiritually for ye are yet karnal. What does that mean that we have put it all in what he was talking to these people now you still have that carnal mind on you still are wanting to hold onto the things of the world and worship god in your way instead of being strong and just put it all into hints hands for whereas there's among you envying strives and divisions. Are you not carlin walk as men for a while one seth. I'm paul and another iowa policy. You're not carnal. Now who is paul and who is a policy but ministers by whom you believe even as the lord gave to every man i planted apollo's us watered but god gave the increase. I believe there was people there that walking together they were preaching and teaching the things that needed to be tall. He says that there's some obviously there that are karnal going after things of the world and not walking at one with one with god and with his son jesus christ and he says is your carnal who when who then is paul who is a policy but ministers by whom you believed even as the lord gave to every man i have planted a polish watered but god gave the increase god's the only one that can give the increase not me. I can come here every sunday and i can preach to you and i can teach you the words of god just as paul deiter a policy or any others in that day and i know that it is tall here but there's only one that can give the increase and that's god the father and there's only one way that you can receive the increase piece by putting it all in and getting that karnal mine out of the way. This is what paul was telling them. You have carnal mind therefore you are not able to received the increase from god because you still have that he says i planted apollo's watered but god is the one it gives the increase so then neither is he that planted anything neither he the water but god give it the increase. He's he is the only way he is. The only one he has his service here phone nearer to plant he has them to water but he he is the one who gives the increase and give him glory and the honor and all things not man but put your faith and trust in jesus christ he he is our salvation now he that planet than unheated water that one in every man shall receive his own reward according to his labor for we are laborers together with god your husband or your gods building according to the grace of god which has given them to me as a wise master builder older i have laid the foundation and another built at their own but let every man take heed how he build their own. I want you to stop just a second and think about what this man was saying. What paul was talking to the people vs is now your labors together together with god. You're working there with gone your gods building and and then he goes on in that tenth verse and he says according to the grace of god which is given unto me he first of all he just he explained where the power that he has the authority that he has come from according to the grace of god which has given it to me as a wise master builder now if you're someone if that spirit of the holy ghost is within them they have the same thing as paul said here he says according to the grace of god which was given unto me as a wise master builder as someone then he had the instruction he had the knowledge you take someone he says a master builder someone in that day that could go out and construct a building home whatever it might be with the materials and the tools that they had in that day had to have some knowledge and understanding to be able to help others to do that also also and that's what paul's talking about that he's talking about the spiritual part with the spiritual part he was a wise whereas masterbuilder why because he had gotten carl mein out of the way because he was walking close to jesus christ because he had accepted him as his savior and he says now i have laid the foundation i have preached and i have taught to so you so that the foundation is there that you can build up on that you can start to build your spiritual life upon and i know that has been being given to this group of people right here. I have given you the foundation. I have laid the foundation the words of god nothing more but the words of god that's what paul speaking to them about the truth of god he says i've laid the foundation for you. He says now another build up their own but let every man take heed how he build now. What are you building upon that foundation that is there there. Are you building opponent wood. Hay and stubble are you build upon gold and silver and precious stones owns. He says there's another that build their own. Take he how he build their take. How you live your life for other foundation can no man lay then that is laid which is jesus christ. There is no other foundation but but through jesus christ that can be laid for our salvation none period none but putting putting our faith and trust in jesus christ that is the foundation of our salvation the foundation of our spiritual eternal life it's to believe upon jesus christ and accept him and no other now if any man build their opponents on this foundation gold silver precious stones would hay and stubble every man's work shall be made manifest for or the day shall declare it because it shall be revealed by far and far show try every man's work of what sort art it is. We understand what he's talking violent. We talked about recently in revelations revelations there. He talks about the fire will come down and destroy the wicked. The righteous that fire will have no power over them at all they aarp protected from that their works will not be burned math we have had wood hay and stubble if we have built that up on that precious foundation. We'll read about that in just a moment there. There's a way to have that taken care off but he says every man's ends work shall be made manifest. What does that mean that way. You are living your life. The the things that you're doing hereupon error in this tabernacle that we are claiming to be filled with the spirit of the holy goes now if it's filled with the spirit of the holy ghost what kind of fruits is it bringing forth what fruits will be made manifest there sure it will be righteous fruits if it is filled with the spirit of the holy ghost but if it is bringing forth anything other than that yeah says there's something wrong and it will be revealed by fire and the fire. She'll try every man's work if what sort it is and if any man's work abide he had built their own he shall receive <hes> reward as we go through this life the works that we do if they abide. They're works of jesus christ in us. It's not our works but if that spirit within us and we will be able to receive a reward if any man's work shall be burned. He shall suffer loss but he himself she'll be saved yet so as my fire if if we hate that san is with us and we go to the lord and repent and we ask him to clean us up here while we're in the land of living and every mistake that we made he says that work will be burned and let it be burned here in the land handed the living suffer the loss here friends so then we'll be saved in finally early and know that you're the temple of god and the spirit of god dwelling. You want us to think what paul was saying about and we we talked about this temple year just a little bit ago and if we're proclaiming that we are a christian then that typical this body should have the spirit of the holy ghost within it. No you not that you are the temple of god and the spirit of god developing new now. Is that the case friends if it's not there's something wrong you you can receive it but only through jesus christ and we have to have that to be able to go out of this world interstate condition. I remember here are the temple. If you've got that you are the temple of god if any man defile the temple of god him shall god destroy for the temple of god is holy which temple ye are not want us to think about what he's saying. We've really you see if you've received that spirit of the holy ghost than this body is it's holy and that spirit is there within you. Do you wanna go out and defile. It was seeing knowingly he says if any man does that if any man defiled the temple of god you defile it with seeing and you do nothing about it you just go out and live in that type of condition continuously in that him mm show god destroys s for the temple of god is holy which temple yie ar are you protecting that that pearl of great price since the man found that he went and he sold it all he bought it and he wanted to protect it then he kept it and when we see the truth of god and we're able to take that strong meat because we we have that spirit of the holy ghost dwelling within us and we want to do everything we can to protect that from thank if you're not wanting to do everything you can to keep out of satan's way you to keep him at bay. Something is wrong again. If you are interested in wanting to live that karnal sinful life that you were one time in that is the world is in something is wrong. The temple defiled the holy ghost will so have you in that you seeking to keep that clean and pure let no man deceive himself let no man and DC himself. If any man among you seem to be wise in this world led him become a flu ooh that he may be wise they become a food to the things of this world that he may be wise to the things above to the thanks spiritually for the wisdom of this world is foolishness with god for it is written. He takes the wives in their own own. Craftiness and again the lord north the thoughts of the wives that they're vein the lord knows was all of our thoughts. He knows our deeds. He knows our our works. What are the thoughts in your mind constantly. Are they vein or are they righteous. I touches therefore let no man glory in man for all things. Are yours all things through jesus christ. We can accomplish all things through him. That's necessary for us. Let no man glory in man not a man put your faith and glory jesus christ whether paul or polish or cpas or the world or life or death or thanks president or thanks to come all or yours and your christ in christ is god's. Are you a part of that. I know that we can all be and i wanna be i am and you're christ and christ is god's not ashamed of being a part of his work. I want to be able to proclaim his words to you and encourage you each and everyone of you to accept him to in courage you to be strong to resist satan to be bold and if you've come out here today listen listen to the wonderful words of life. Don't let satan have your mind off on something else somewhere else but listen to the words of eternal life that we're reading and we're just discourse known because you will stand before jesus christ i you will stand there and you will bow to him either in this life or then and it'll be too late then but if you bow to today and begged for the forgiveness that you're worse than that would hay and stubble can be burned here in this life so that you might be saved that final day have it burned have taken away and haven't righteous mind let a man so account of us as the ministers ministers of christ and stewards of the mysteries of god moreover it is inquire required in stewart's that a man be found faithful with these people to understand he says now let a man let each one of you so account of us as the ministers astor's of christ and that is my job to be minister of christ and to teach and be a steward eared the mysteries of god to be able to teach them to sort these things to you and to me so so that we can understand what his were mover. It is required in scared that a man be faithful there. We faithful to him but with me it is. It's a very small thing that i should be judged. View or of man's judgment day are not mine own sale for. I know nothing by ourself yet. Am i not here by justified but he the judge me is the lord and that's who each and every one of us today need. HB asking to be judged by and to be judged by the words that we're reading today that's the truth of god the truth of jesus christ the gospel of jesus christ as what will we will be judged by. That's what he's talking about here. He didn't judgy edgy self but he the judge me is the lord therefore nothing before the time until the lord come who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness and will make manifest the cancels of their ours and then she'll every man how praise of god in these things brethren. I have an figure transferred to myself into a policy for your sakes that you might learn learn in us not to think of men above that which is written that no one of you be puffed up for one against mr nother he says now what you'd understand that we are in the ministers of god ministers of jesus christ and he says these things have been given to us by god and he says that you might learn enough not to think of men above above that which is written to not think above to think put so much faith and trust in man as he was warning them about some were saying we'll. I'm of this man some of IM another. We've got to be with god the father jesus as christ into spiritual church of jesus christ. That's where we've got to be today and not thank just because i am a part of a certain church somewhere whatever that i am saved but we have to be a part of that's true spiritual church of jesus christ that is the only way but he was warning and we it can be defiled and we can listen to a false doctrine and he also said let no man deceive himself he warned us of all these things lanes even in that day it was being taken place and this was just a few short years after christ here on the earth breath just a few short years but who make the to differ from another and what has now the dow did not receive now now did us received why style glorious if they'll have not received now. You're a four now you're ridge. You have reigned as kings without us. I would to god that you did rain that. We might all that we also might rain with you for. I think that god has set forth us there postles last as it were appointed today for we are made a spectacle in to the world into angels into men. We are food for christ's sake but you're in christ. We're week year strong your <music> honorable but we are despised paul disc going around just bringing the things had taken place there in their lives and morning them to understand do not be exalted in your own self. He says look where we are. We are ministers scourge of god. We're apostles of his but in the eyes of the world we're food for christ's sake but your wives in christ. We're week which you're strong your honorable but we're despised i even to this present hour we both hunger and thirst and are naked and our and our busted and have no certain dwelling place and labour working with our own hands being reviled. We blessed being persecuted. We suffering being defame aim. We intrigue. We're main is the fifth of the world and scarring of all things in to this day. This is is not right not these things to shame you but as my beloved sons warn you we might think about sometimes we give some pretty strong warnings but i want you to go back and just look you can see how the polls warning these people how strong he was and how he was telling them that they were not able to receive that strong meat because of the condition that they were in spiritually and he just went over and he told role in showing them how they were walking and they were apostles. Were ministers of god but look where they were in their own eyes and in the eyes of man they were low. They didn't even have certain dwelling welling places. Somebody may have we might look today as find home and we might put all that glory and trust in and the things a natural the things that we might have today better be careful saying and he says i write not the thanks to ashamed but warn you and that's what i wanna stall take things to affect today not that these warnings are coming to shame you but it's to warn you that carl minds danced to warn you of sate and his deceitful ways and now he can lead you right away from the truth of god for though you have ten thousand instructors in christ yet. You have not many fathers for in christ jesus. I have begotten you through the gospel. Wherefore i beseech you be followers of me says why did he say that to be a follower of him because he knew of a certainty that he was walking with jesus christ he knew he had been able to receive it and he knew the things that he was preaching and teaching to these people was the truth and if they wanted eternal life they must fowler them. He says you have ten thousand instructors in kreis all manner of people obstructing the way to heaven today okay and it was even in that day but he says yet have have you not many fathers true father what is true father will do is instruct his children and the right way he will not lead them out and something that is going to destroy them for in christ jesus. I have begotten you through the gospel and christ jesus that i have preached and taught what do you he says i have begotten you have become you have been born in that spirit begotten yeah he says through do the gospel of jesus christ through the power of god for this calls of senator you the most easiest who is my beloved son faithful in the lord who show bring you into remembrance of my ways which being christ as i teach everywhere wear and every church here's this man we've talked a lot about this young preacher. This young missionary timothy and here paul is just telling me he says now sent this man to you. I couldn't come. I've written this letter warning. You and i've sent this man who is is my beloved son he had taken him in mentored him. He had worked with him. He had taught him the truce his mother had taught him his grandmother had told him and now he was being sent out with the spirit of the holy ghost and he says i sent to you the most who is my beloved son and faithful in the lor who shall bring you you into remembers of my ways which being christ the things that he will teach to you. He says we'll be at one with what i told you and they will bring to you. Remembrance it will refresh your your mind. It will encourage you in the words that i have spoken to you before they you'll be able to remember my words words my ways which be in kreis if you see that spirit following what he was talking to these people how he knew where he was he says as i teach everywhere in every church i go to every church go to everywhere i go.

If the lord will we'll know not the speech of them which are puffed up but the power but the power i will come to you shortly if the lord will and we'll know not and we'll note not the speech of them which are puffed up but the power those that are puffed up and does that feel like they are serving man or they are better because of a certain man baptize them or a certain man was they heard word from he says listen to those things but i will listen to the power of god i will be led by the power of god to overcome satan and all things for the kingdom of god is not not in word but in power not in words but in the power of the spirit within you what will ye shall. I come unto you with a rod. We're in love and in the spirit of meekness. What will you today. Well i come to you you with iran and what was the rod used four for correction or in love and in the spirit of meetings. What do you want me today. He said and what do you won't today do you. Oh jesus christ to come to us with a rod of correction unloving seven in spirit meetings. I wanted to be able to find me and a condition that i can receive the love and respect in spirit. If i need the rod i want to rob. I'll say but i wanna live my life so that iran spared appeared on me not that i feel like that i am above there but i wanna live at so that he he didn't have to use the ron. You have seen children that live in accordance to their parents that did not have to have the raw you've seen others that did not live in accordance with the rules their parents had and had to have the rod had to be corrected because those things we bring things upon our sales sales but i want to be able to be sure that i've got the love of jesus christ within me and let's walk in that unless be strong and the spirit of the holy ghost turnover to thesselonians. I listen loans. The read this read start at the second chapter first this alone for your sales brethren no no our interests in it to you that it was not in vain but even after that we had suffered before and we're shamefully treated as you know a flip by we were bold in our god to speak until you the gospel of god with much contagion paul here now is talking to another group in a letter he had written to him and he sees you none of the things that we've suffered we you just read about some of the things they're they had suffered about. He was telling them about and he says but we were both in our god to speak unto onto you the gospel of gone with much contention contention of things going on that day but i did not slow to paul down that did not stop him from being bold and calling out whatever needed to be called out for our exhortation was not of deceit god nor were cleanliness nor in guile scenario translation was not in this thing but it was in the love and and in the power of god but as we were allowed of god to be put in trust with the gospel even so we speak not as pleasing using man but god which try our hearts read about their of how and how god had made a minister and ended it was his duty to go out and speak the truth of god and he's telling these same people these things here but as we were allowed of god to be put in trust with the gospel that god allowed him to be able to receive the spirit of the holy ghost god allowed him to be a minister stirrup of the work. God has allowed me to be a minister of his words and that puts me in a dangerous condition that that i must speak his truths and i must be a watchman on wall just as paul speaking of these things here. If i do not breath then how will we held accountable just as paul's talking about these things here that he was allowed of god to be put in trust with the gospel even so we speak not as pleasing man but god which try our harz. That's who we have to be speaking and ex putting forth the exhortations to please god not man man for neither at anytime us we flattering words as you know nor a cloak of covetousness god is witness and god is witness to the things that have been taught and preached here to us that his word has been preached his word has been taught nor man salt we glory neither of you nor yet of others when we might have been burdensome boom as the apostles of christ but we were gentle among you even as a nurse cherishes her children so being affectionately desirous of view we were willing to have imparted unto you not the gospel of god only but also our own souls close because you were dear to us. He says that we had come there. Even though there was contention contention there were people that wanted to have contagion about the things that we have to say but he says even with those things he says we have been affectionally divide desirous of you had love had a desire to see see you grow to be able to take that strong meet. We were willing to have imparted unto view not the gospel of god only he says now i was willing to speak the gospel of god odd to preach that to you but he says not only to that but also our own so because you were dear to ask that whatever was that god would ask for us if it was to give up our life they you might be able to receive reverse spirit. He says we were ready to do that. Because you were dear unto us and i speak these things today each and every one of you because you are dear to me that if there's anything that i can do to help you to have eternal life to draw close to jesus christ. What would you how for me to do and this is. What paul was speaking to these people about for you. Remember brethern our labor inter veil for laboring night and day because we would not be chargeable debut any of you we preached unto you the gospel of god laboring night and day for the natural things for the spiritual things whatever was he says we preached unto you the gospel of god so that they might i understand and they might become strong in it your witnesses and god also how holy and justly and blame ably. We behaved ourselves among you that believe did we not just read about politics and he's others they were witnesses of them and your witnesses hang thank god also and i know that god is a witness of all of our works your works and my works. He's a witness on it. There is nothing from him and there will be nothing this he had from me and says how holy and justly salie and blame ably. We behaved ourselves among you that believe he says how we have walked in tried tried to be in a blameless situation so that you'll be able to see the spirit and walk in that and you know how how we exhorted and comfort and charged every one of you as a father death. He's children how we mourned argue how we comforted you and how we charged you. How we gave you the commandments of god and we asked you to keep those commandments the things that we have commanded you to do through jesus christ what he was talking about. Are we willing to do that today. Are we willing to listen to the words that jesus christ will give us and to listen to the commandments midst of how we should live our life and this is what he was talking to them about their and charged every one of you as a father to his children. What does that father where do to his child but instruct him in the way he would how for him to live and that is what paul and others were doing their savannah's timothy that was who was with him at that time that you would walk worthy of god who have called you into his kingdom and glory he saying out <unk> out. I'm working with you. I'm warning you of all leaks lanes and why is is he doing that that you would walk worthy of god that you would walk worthy of his spirit spirit dwelling in that tabernacle that you have they you would walk and do a work that you would keep under this body and bring it subjection of the things of this worl- so that you not be a castaway because you've been called into the kingdom and glory i've off-guard for this calls also thank god without ceasing because when when you received the word of god you heard of us which he heard avas you received it not as the word of man but as it is in in truth the word of god which effects really worked work at also in you that believe and this is the only way that it can happen and i want you to know that this is what you have to do today. He says for this calls also think thank god without ceasing for this calls he says now that you walk worthy of gone who has called you into his his kingdom and glory and he says now for this calls also thank god without seeing he says i'm thanking thanking god for you to be able to receive that new you to have that spiritual mind and spiritual truths because when you received the word of god which you heard of us. Have you heard word of god from. Have you received it and are you running it. He says you received it not as the word of of man and that's what you say today that if i am teaching in preaching the truth to you receive it not from coming from me but receiving his coming from jesus christ our lord. This is what paul was wanting to get a cost to them. What i want you to understand today. If it's the truth of it is just like he is the one that has given to to you but as is in truth. The word of god awed which affects really worth in you that believe it will work in all of those believe and submit to him now for you. Brother became followers of the churches of god which in judea are in christ jesus this for you also have suffered like things of your own countrymen even as they have of the jews news for ye brother became followers of the churches of god. When you see that comforter you then became a part of that spiritual church of jesus christ that we talked about earlier for ye have for you also have suffered like things on your own countrymen even as they have of the jews who both killed lord lord jesus and their own profits and have persecuted us and they please not gone and are contrary to all men these were the people that were living there phone the earth and did do not accept him he says and they both kill the lord jesus in their own profits and have persecuted us and they please not not god and are contrary to all men forbidding us to speak to the gentiles that they might be saved to fill up their seeings always for the raft is come upon them to the other most post and the other most draft of god will be rained out upon all of those disobedient the unrighteous but we brother being taken from you for a short time in presence not in heart endeavored to more more abundantly to see your face with great desire and i want you to think about what had taken place as we talked a lot about recently the polls a missionary and he was going on these trips and he would go hundreds and thousands bowels in these trips visiting and setting up churches and then he'd go back at a later date and visit them and i believe is what he's talking about here that but we brethren being taken from you for a short time in presence and he was gone he had been there he had preached the word of god he hid mentored some one there around in the with the thesselonians to be able to continue to teach the word and he was not at all afraid that the spirit of the holy ghost would not have power to be able to preach when his presence was gonna own when he was somewhere else he had given the word he had taught him he had seen people receive a bit. He knew what the spirit had done in him. He knew what the spirit could do with others and that was what he wants to do is not to stay in one place right on on and on and on and on but to go there to teach into preaching to set up a church and to setup men elders and bishops quite what if preacher's whatever it might be so that they could continue own and he said apprentice not in hard in my heart i was there and i was is praying for you. Endeavoring the more abundantly see your face with a great desire and he wanted to see them move up wherefore we would have come into you. Even i paul once again but satan hindered there are certain things that paul looked looked upon satan hindered him from not being able to go there paul had sicknesses that sometimes and he had rest last in certain places if you read some about any in the history of him and he was not able to go and i believe that was what he was proclaiming there that it was it could have been something to that effect and he looked opponent. That satan was the one that was hindering for what is our hope or joy. Roy are crown of rejoicing are not even you in the presence of our lord jesus christ his coming. What is our our hope or joy or crown of rejoicing. What is our hope or crown of rejoicing. Today is what are you saying are not even the and the presence of our lord jesus christ his common. He knew that he had preached to he knew that they had accepted and he says now he says are not even ye in the presence of our lord jesus christ is coming for ye our glory and enjoy who says glory and joy in word in the truth and i know today there are big and i i pray that each and every one that is struggling spiritually today go to war and ask him to show you the way to ask him to feel oh your body with that spirit of the holy ghost to fill that tabernacle with the glory of god and make it a tabernacle of god then you might walk with him and be at one so that we can stand with him at that final judgment day. I want to read a few verses here in second thesselonians it. This is in the third chapter second thesselonians finally brethren prayed for that the word of the lord may have free course and be glorified even as easy as with you and that is what i want to see each and every one of us i want us to all have that in mind finally early brethren as he talked he had worn them and he had talked to him about false teachers in this part also and this is something the knicks warren throughout the bible friends but he says finally brethren pray for us that the word of the lord may have free course and be gory fide is with you and that you may be delivered that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked man for all men have not fake pay but the lord is faithful who show stab you and keep you from evil. Evil lord is faithful in his promises. He's faithful in what he said that he had dude sending a set comforter and we have confidence in the lord touching that you both do and we the older the things which we command you. Did you hear what he's saying that he was in he had talked to these people he had helped him he had helped him to set up their church and he had talked to him about that. He was a minister of god and now he's telling them in this this letter that we have confidence in the lord touching you we have confidence that the lord has touched you and that you so have received that you both will do you both do and we'll do that things which we he commanded you and the lord direct your heart and to the love of god and into the patience waiting for christ now we command you brother in the name of our lord jesus christ that you would draw yourselves from every brothers walk at disorderly and not after the tradition which you have received us be careful. I want you to listen again what he say he says now and the lord direct your hearts. He didn't say anything about man he says now you do the things that we command you and he says i'm command i and you these things i'm warning you of these things through the spirit of god and he says the lord direct your hearts and to the love of god and into the patient waiting for christ he went on and he had some things to talk to him about and to warn about now we command you brother in the name of jesus christ our floor in the name of our lord jesus christ he quantified how he was giving them the instructions that you withdraw yourself from every brother that walk disorderly and not accurate addition which you have received for your sales know how you out to follow us for for we behave not ourselves. Disorderly among these are things that the lord has brought to our tensions that we need to look into carefully and to see where are we are spiritually what we are doing what i wanna hold on to here in this life or am i willing to turn loose loose and serve jesus christ and this is what we read different people that paul we've riding adding to and warning them about but he was worn in nam about things of this life how that it can separate us from the love of god so easily and he says let no man deceive review and that's what i would hand with today as let no man deceive view but there is one of the thing and i think i read this recently in that first letter thesselonians there he says then which then we which are alive and remain she'll be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the lord in the air and and socio we ever be with the lord those that accept him those a here his commandments does that walked with him. Those then that are <unk> are alive and remain alive spiritually when jesus christ comes back says those does that are alive and remain shall be caught up together with him them and mcleod to meet the lord in the air and so shall we ever be be with the lord wherefore comfort one another with these words. I wanna comfort you with the final words walk with him. Be sure that we're setting the right example walk with him in truth so that we can rise to meet him in the air.

Richard Baxter: Why Self Denial Is Necessary For Salvation
"This episode is brought to you by the Christian Standard Bible a Bible translation. You can teach from with confidence and share with your neighbor. Hearing God's Word for the first time learn more at CS BIBLE DOT com. This is true until you're listening to revive thoughts for. He takes away from God's essence or attributes and still thinks he believes in God because he has left him his name and titles does just as bad as those who set up an image and worship that instead of God every episode. We bring you a different voice from history and a sermon that they delivered. Today's sermon was preached by Richard. Baxter we're going back to the sixteen hundreds in England. Joel we talk a lot on this show about people who there's just not enough time to cover their entire life and Richard Baxter is definitely one of these people. I wasn't expecting him to be. I guess I hadn't really heard a lot of who he was and so I just assumed he'd have a couple of bullet points and it would be you know quick and easy to talk about him but he's not and he's actually a very hard to describe guy and what I mean by that is. I don't really know usually you can say Charles. Spurgeon was a passionate preacher Dietrich. Bond hoffer fearless. But I don't really know how what were you could attach to Baxter. He for example he wrote over two hundred books. Devotional 's he wrote a bunch of articles but he never really aspired to be more than just a pastor to people out in the field very very small church in a pretty small town. He was comfortable right there. Yeah he got involved in. Some of the biggest controversies very divisive. Time to be alive but he himself. He believed he was a peacemaker. But I'll let you listen to this episode and decide if you think he's a peacemaker. Yeah like what you said about him. Just wanting to be a pastor like that's that's something that I saw several points in his life. Where like the dude? He's just chill like he doesn't have. He doesn't have a huge agenda. He just wants to minister to the people but it was funny. Like people in you'll see people offer him something he'll go. I know I don't want that and the later. I really regret not doing that. Why didn't you do it? Strangely relate with that so in this sermon. We're going to listen to. He talks about the nine oneself. And I think you can kind of see it play out. Sheriff Shirt Yeah Richard Baxter like I said mid sixteen hundreds he was born in sixteen. Fifteen would die in sixteen ninety one in Oregon in England. He spent most of his life in England. He comes from a pretty poor family not a lot of money. He was pretty poor growing up in. He didn't get a great education until he was able to get into a school run by John. Owen John Owen. Who He's famous Puritan and we actually have an episode on him in the works that we're excited for. But he helped get baxter going. He'll get baxter a great education and got him real interested in things of theology when Richard. Baxter came to the end of his education with John John in school He's looking for places to further his education and John Owen told Baxter that he shouldn't go to Oxford and I'm not entirely sure why kind of get the idea that maybe John didn't think he was quite cut out for Oxford. But due to that advice heat he didn't go to Oxford. He continued to further his education through other means but he always in retrospect looks back at his life and kind of really regrets not going to Oxford. Yeah Joe that's one of those regrets. We mentioned earlier. We I was GonNa do this and then I didn't and now I wish I had kind of a lot of his story in the Sixteen Forty S. The English civil war broke out. And I'm going to just stop giant Astra's Cure Joel and I from America and I think I speak for both Joel myself when I say that if you couldn't tell by accents but I think it would be for both of us when I say don't understand the single English civil war. It's confusing a lot of our speakers. Come from this era around the English lower and we've dived into portions of time but it is still a very confusing for us in the twenty first century in America. I know I've even watched youtube videos. Like we'll explain the English civil one five minutes or less than you watch it and I still don't know what happened so at some point we're going to do some better research so we explain this to you better but the main point being the war broke out. And he Richard Baxter was like I condemn both sides. I don't like either. The two sides fighting which made both sides hate him even worse than being on one side was being against both of them so they basically kicked out of church and told them to set up shop in a different town. He ends up. Having a mini famous ministers. Spend time in the new church that he starts out It was considered a safe place for fugitives. One particularly famous man was John Bunyan and we did a sermon on him. A few episodes back and very famous guy at the time. He would actually see several battles. He would be a chaplain to the soldiers. During that time he was asked by Oliver Cromwell and I do not know much about it but I know he was one of the big dog so that civil war to get position but Richard Baxter rejected. It said I don't want to do that so eventually. He was brought to London to settle the quote fundamentals of religion in quote in London. But I don't know that they ever did to get sick in the middle this. He goes back home to his home church. And that's when he ends up writing one of his most famous books saints. Everlasting THE SAINTS. Everlasting rest and this being one of the most read books in the sixteen hundreds and that's during a time when people are reading a lot of books yet. Richard Baxter is also one of these guys that he got in a lot of debates. GotTa a lot of arguments but arguments all of the time to and tell me if you know somebody like this. You know someone who I would describe Richard Baxter. Someone who's sensitive to their conscious takes takes their conscious seriously and rarely thinks that other people are doing things the way they really should be doing or for the right reasons right and he makes that now so he's he's always kind of calling out people saying. I don't think you're doing this reasons or I don't think this is the way that that should be happening in. It leads to a lot of conversations and debates and I definitely know at least one or two guys in my in my life that totally meet that description. There's there's there's one story about Richard Baxter where he was having a debate with a guy about baptism in the ideas of that day around baptism and Dane gauged in this debate and the debate lasted from nine. Am to five PM and there ended up being three thousand people that came on looking like look really invested in this conversation. These two people were having and so much so that the sheriffs had to come and get involved to settle down the crowds because the crowds were getting so into it. And we're getting so lively that the type of person that Richard Baxter was. He's the type of person whose whose opinions are so interesting to listen to that. It can get three thousand people riled up all of a sudden right and not necessarily you know he's he's not coming at people with anger swinging hammers. This guy that he was having this debate with years down the road they'll kind of collaborate on some pamphlets and stuff like that work together a little bit and kind of endorse each other's work so it's it's kind of neat to see his interaction with the people that he doesn't always agree with a lot of time. Something else and you have to understand about Baxter. The the way he lived his life his style of church leadership and pastoral work would end up being honestly the blueprint for the way churches and pastors would run from that point on he. Kinda put out a lot of the ideas and people would go back. And let's do it like Baxter. Did it and one thing that he felt very strongly about was home visits. He thought this was just an incredibly neglected part of ministry. He said that he felt half an hour of just one on one time with a person or family would do more good for that person's spiritual walk than ten years preaching behind the pulpit would do for them. History was in a rural part of the country completely. They ended up completely. Outgrowing the church to keep renovating or remodeling to make more room for the attendance. When he when he got to that town it was a town of eight hundred families and just a couple. Maybe maybe just a couple of. We're going part time. When he ended up leaving there were six hundred full-time attendees and he had this weird line is kind of a classic Baxter. Almost we're at the end of it. He goes six hundred people. Come but I I would be surprised if even twelve of them were really sincere in their faith and it's just it's such an interesting just outlook on things. He's he's unique and the English civil war. You know we. We've talked about the English of were a little bit in the trail. We know that he again didn't aside with either side And it was kind of this turning point in his ministry where You get known for something one way or another right in after the war he really wanted to get people back together. You saw this devastation. That the war had caused in the disunity. And that's a big deal for him as this this unity being broken over the war so he wanted to bring people back together and he got pretty well known for it in was doing an Ra job at the Church of England asked him to become a bishop but he refused and that then made a lot of people really angry and he ended up getting his preaching license as it wasn't really a license but basically he was told can't preach anymore right if you had a preacher's license imagine that you're reaching license in air quotes. Yeah he just ended up on the on the wrong side of law enforcement. He ended up on the wrong side of of people in power and so he was getting shut down at events longtime in again he he turned on the bishop because he wanted to. Just keep preaching the way he wanted down preaching to the people who wanted to reach the small church and he wanted to kind of keep going where he thought God was using them. I guess you know people say we have bigger plans for you. And when he said No. Yeah people didn't like that and so now he's getting fined for you know miscellaneous stuff. His events are getting shut down by the authorities. There's a few different occasions where his books would be confiscated and he just took all of this kind of ran with it in stride when he preached. He said that he never felt sure if he would be able to preach again and he said he tried to preach every sermon as if it was his last and I love this quote here where he says that he like he was a dying man giving truth to dying man right so if at any moment like he's he's ready to leave this world he's he's just doing what he feels called the do in the time that he has left to help other people that are coming towards the end of their time. They have left right. This episode is brought to you by Liberty healthshare my name is matthew. Belus I'm with liberty healthshare. Liberty healthshare is a five zero one.

That's eight five five five eight five four two three seven in the end of his life. He'd sometimes preach But the law would hound him and he can never be in one place preaching for very long so maybe a guest speaker. Whenever somebody can have around for quite a long time I he could never get his own church again but the king at that time would die in a new one came to power and this last one he he let him off the hook basically kinda forgave him pardoned him of pretty much everything that was causing trouble and this this new king was trying to end wars divisions in trying to England past all of this stuff going on and so baxter was one of the people that got laid off now he had at one point sent over in that time he it's been eighteen months in prison over the course of those years he had had a time. And Baxter. There's one kind of problem we have to bring up with Baxter. And that is that. He chose to be a moderate and I think he chose it because he saw how the extreme way of life that he had seen in the other people had led to the English civil war and had all these bad consequences so he wanted to moderate. He wanted to pull back and he kind of sat down the road. The problem is people taking that path that he went down ended up people say basically he the seeds down that would lead to the enlightenment would lead to ecumenical. Ism would lead to all these bad things that would happen later on and much like the Salem witch trials. If you WANNA look at it this way that we talked about Joel and I and our revived thoughts deep dive much like the Salem witch trials kind of cool down the American spirit toward God. You could say that the English civil war kind of cooled off the passions of the people in England and they started to kind of go down a different road leaving that path and Richard. Baxter having lived through that he became one of those people. Who's kind of? Let's take this more? Moderate Road and other people jumped on that road and said well let's go even further and further until they kind of walked away from God in a sense but I think for Baxter. He just had seen the extremists of everything and he was trying to find a more. God centered path. That would bring about more of that Pinot the peaceful fruit of righteousness the fruit of peace and the fruit of being a peacemaker. He was really determined to just bring people together in unity. In a way that would reflect God because he had seen just so much of the disunity in his life. Yeah Yeah I mean and we talk about on the show all the time that we have this ability to have that hindsight twenty twenty right where we look at the effects that this person had in the following decades centuries rate and they don't know any of that at the time they're making decisions based on their environment and Baxter went through a terrible civil war and it's all terrible things and he made decisions on that and you know could did. He realize that his decisions would lead to different movements on the road. Maybe we'll never know what is heart is in what he desired for these things. It's really easy to look back on somebody into judge. Say See if he had just not done that right. We wouldn't end up here but you know we have no idea. He imagined his intentions for God were good. He seemed like he loved the Lord and loved vandalizing that breaching and I just think it's very easy to look back and go see that guy's wrong and I'm sure that one hundred years from now if we're all still here they'll be people looking back and go see this twenty first century Christians in America. Hadn't done this hundred percent this sermon that we're about to listen to from Baxter. He spends it talking about the things that we have to give up when we follow. God right too often. People want to have Christ but with none of the consequences and he talks about not wanting to give things up kind of really comes across as a sign of not being saved right because as hill. Say in the sermon. And make sense right. If you're a Christian that you'd WANNA give yourself up to Christ I will now show you some of the recent that self. Denial is necessary. I will prove it to you that it is no small thing and not the lofty standard of a few of the saints. Know it does his thing that almost have and will be saved. It is the essence of holiness itself. It is as impossible to separate holiness from self-denial as separating living from life. And if you think it strange that salvation should be dependent on such a hard duty and that no man can be a true disciple that does not deny himself even given his life when God requires it then I will show it to you reason one until a man denies himself he denies God and does not believe in Him. He thought love him and take him to be as God and I hope you will grant that no man can be saved. That doesn't believe in God or love him or take some I god he that will deny God and yet think to be saved must think to be saved. In spite of God the first article of our faith and of our baptism all Christian covenant is to believe in God the father and take him for our God and give up of ourselves to be his people but this no man can do without self the Nile. For by all that I have said in the description of it you may see that selfishness is contrary to God and would rob him of all his higher qualities and God would be no God self is the God of wicked men or the world's great idol and that the inordinate love of pleasure prophets and honor in trinity is all but this self love and unity and that in the militias trinity of God enemies. The flesh is a I thin foundation the world second and the devil. The third every man is an adulterer so far as he is selfish. God is not just a name for he that takes away from God's essence or attributes and still thinks he believes in God because he has left him his name and titles does just as bad as those who set up an image and worship that instead of God or that worshiped the sun or moon as gods because they somewhat represent his glory for surely name has as little substance as an image much less. Can you say it has more than the sun now? Selfish ungodly men will rob God and give his honor and desires to themselves but they will try to put off with empty. Titles they call him their God but will not have him for their in their portion andor joy and won't give him the strongest love of their hearts it will not take him as absolute owner. They won't devote themselves and all they have to him and stand with the Willing Mind as his servant they will not take him for their sovereign and be ruled by him and they won't deny themselves for him or seek his honor and interest above their own. They call him their father but deny him his honor they call him their master but do not fear. Him Malachi one six. They don't depend on his hand and don't live by law and for his glory therefore they do not take him for their God and can you expect that God should say those that deny him and what did thrown him. Those are is very enemies reason to yes more than this God will not save those and make themselves our own gods and who have rejected him. But all these on sanctified selfish men make themselves their own gods for an all the ten points before mentioned they take themselves the desires of God one. They do everything for themselves to they. Use all creatures for themselves. Even God himselves is recognized as only for themselves three a love their present life and prosperity better than God for they would be there themselves and live at some selves and not those that are not like them five they would have the creatures to be. There's and use them as a roan and not as gods six they must care for themselves and look out for themselves endear not trust themselves wholly upon God seven they will use things for themselves and their own conditions and never for anyone else eight they would rule them cells and be away from the laws and government of God nine they would be the rulers of all others and have all men do their wills ten and they would be honored and admired by all and half praise at -scribed them and if all this does not set themselves up as gods or idols in the world. I don't know what does certainly got his. So far from having a thought or saving such vile idolaters who stay in this condition that they are the principal objects of his high displeasure and the most deserving marks for his justice to shoot at and he is engaging employing them down and treading them into hell. Why should God stand by and see a company of rebellious centers? Sit Down in his throne or try to observe his sovereignty in divine rules. Would he leave them alone and then advance them to his glory? No he is resolved that he that humbles himself will be exalted and he that exalts himself will be brought low. And what Higher Self Exaltation can there be then to make ourselves as our own gods and therefore who will be brought lower than this reason three? No Man can be a Christian that doesn't take Christ for his Lord and Savior and no man. Without the self-denial can take Christ for his Lord and Savior therefore no man without self. The Nile can be a Christian and be saved. He who makes himself as an cannot follow Christ for Christ as a way to the father and not to Carnell no the business that Christ came into the world to do was to pull down and subdue this selfishness moreover whoever takes Chrysler Saviour must know from what it is that Christ myth save him and that is most importantly for oneself and no man can take Christ for his savior that renounces not self confidence and is not willing to be saved from the idolatry of Self Exaltation. No mankin take Chrisopher's master or teacher that doesn't come into his school. As a little child renouncing the guidance of the CARNAL SOUTH THERE IS NO ANTI CHRIST OR FALSE. Christ that is in the world that opposes Christ more am resists him in all the parts of his power then our karnal selves. It is this that will not stoop to his righteousness or to his guidance. Self is false. Christ our Savior of the world and its faults. God and therefore can be no salvation. Where self is not denied and taken down first reason for he who doesn't believe in the Holy Ghost and won't take him for a sanctify cannot be a true Christian or be Sade but no man without the self-denial beliefs in the holy ghost and takes him for his sanctify. Therefore without this self-denial no man can be true Christian or be saved. The very nature of sanctification consists in turning a man from himself to God it destroys selfishness and devotes his soul to God by Christ so it is beyond doubt that none but the south denying are sanctified but they truly take the holy ghost for their sanctify and truly believe in Him. So far is men are in love with the disease. It is certain they will not see the doctor reason five. No Man is a true Christian and in a state of salvation that Diniz renounces or reject sort of God but all men that don't have self-denial adhere. The word of God do renounce deny it or rejected therefore no man without South Nile is a true Christian or can be saved in the scriptures. We have eternal light. It Sam that make us wise to salvation a man that will be blessed must meditate in them day and night psalm. One three and it's not the. Here's but the doers of them. That are blessed but nothing is more clear and the Voice of Scripture calls out loud on all manton denied themselves and that the scope of it is to tear down South and set up God and Jesus Christ it is a very point in meaning of it for men to end to take down south and lower men in their own eyes and bring them home to God from whom they are in revolt reason six no man can be a Christian or be saved without saving grace but no man without self. Denial has saving grace for. It is nature of every grace to carry man from himself to God by Christ it is the work of Godly. Sorrow humbled proud man and break the heart of Karnal Self. It is the work of fate for a self denying soul to pass out for hope and life to Christ. It is a work of love to carry US quite above ourselves to that infinite goodness which we love. It is the nature of Holy Fair to fill our guilt and insufficiency and to suspect ourselves and dread the fruit of our own ways. Confidence does bottom us before God and hope itself does imply a despairing in ourselves. Thankfulness does pay homage to him that has saved us from ourselves and every grace have self-denial as half. It's very life or soul. So what is certainly no man has anymore grace. Then he has self. Denial reason seven they who reject the ministry and the fruit of all. The works of God are not true. Christians and are not saved for the use of the ministry is to call home centers from themselves to God use of every ordinance of God is to get or keep down Karnal self and exalt the Lord. Confession is nothing but self abasing and he must confess that will help the faithful and just God forgive him for he covers. His sin will not prosper. First John One nine proverbs twenty eight thirteen prayer as a confession of our own emptiness insufficiency and unworthiness and applying from ourselves. Help one another in baptism. We come as condemned prisoners for pardon as it were with ropes about our necks and strip ourselves of the brags of our filthiness by the blood of the land. We may be washed from our blood and our sins may be buried into the depths of the sea. In the Lord's supper renew the same covenant and the same renewed pardon and still fly from ourselves to Christ for life and reunite renounce our karnal cells by solemn cabinet as a people coming home to God so that never was any ordinance of God effectual and saving on the soul of any more so than when it brought them to self-denial reasoning. He'd that doesn't work sincerely and cannot go. Once step into the way of life is no true Christian but this is a case of all that do not have self denial for self is a principal ruling end and he that has either a false principle rule or end cannot be sincere in any of the means much less when he is out of all of these a selfish man is seeking himself in his very religion and is serving himself when he seemed to be serving God and indeed he does not do any service sincerely for God because he will make God is in and so he is an accepted resign. No Man is a true Christian or cannot or can be saved that stays on the depths of his natural misery still in his lap state but all men who stay in their natural softened snus do not change for to solve that they are beholden to and must be saved from it reason ten. No Man can be a true Christian and be saved that is not a member of the holy Church and the communion of saints but she will only find the salt denying there for every true member of the church has a public spirit preferring the church's interest to their own and suffering with fellow members in their suffering and having care of one another first Corinthians twelve but the self seeking unsatisfied. Person is a stranger to this way of life. Reason number eleven he that is led by the greatest enemy of God and his own soul is not a true Christian but so is every man that is not learned to deny himself for self is the greatest enemy of God and us. If you could escape your own hands then you would be out of danger. All the devils and hell cannot destroy you if you would not be your own destroyer. I reason twelve. Lastly it is the plane contradiction to be saved without self denial for as itself. We must be saved from both as our end and means and is our greatest enemy so to stay in self is still to be lost and miserable and therefore you are not safe so the case is as plain as a case can be but no man can be a true Christian or a disciple of Christ without self the Nile and consequently none without it can be the reason number three that he says is for self-denial beat a part of Asian. No Man can be a Christian. That doesn't take Christ for his Lord and Savior and no man without self. Denial can take Christ for his Lord and Savior. That sounds almost like he's just saying the same thing twice but think about it truly. Could you say it? Just imagine at work. My boss told me to do these different things. Did you do now? Now don't get to them. How long are you going to be employed? You're going to be fired on the spot but hearing that just goes what A. What a schmuck right. Well how can you say that? God is my Lord and Savior. I really love my do anything. God tells me to my Har- fully his. I'm I'm dedicated to God will do what he tells you in the Bible like deny yourself pick up your cross no. I don't that I kind of live my own thing but God is great Sunday morning for about five minutes. It's not going to be very realistic. And I think a lot of I duNno I. I am someone who came from a Christian home came from several Christian generations grandparents Christians and I do feel like it's kind of slightly. I don't know when you're raised in a Christian environment. When it's all you know I feel like there is a little bit of danger becoming Numb to donny of Christian life as opposed to someone who's a first generation Christian right now who came to know the Lord and college or something like that where they see the light and darkness. There's that difference to them. I think there's a wisdom and somebody who came later to Christ Sherry. No they really know what life out God is like right but I mean this is something that I feel like I struggle with to like the does my life really reflect this. You Know I. We had a Bible Study Group. That just went through James and James Hammers on that hard to as well as like. If you're faced is real it will result in real things that people notice that better tangible that they're they're works there are things that as a result of your faith being real in that needs to be something we take seriously. I know this isn't from the Seromba you put me in. James Abraham he brings Abraham Andrey Habit. I love it because as as the people for the worse. And Abraham is the father of the faith but he wouldn't have been the father of the head and put Isaac on the altar and Rahab is not the father of the she's the prostitute in. She had a bad job. She betrayed her country. She lied and yet she's considered faithful. Yeah because her heart was in the right place she was doing actions with her heart set on the right reasons and so God could use her and I back coming back to the sermon. You may not get self-denial perfectly. You may not live perfectly. But your heart's in the right place and you're doing something. I think Gaza going to move in your life a lot. More than if you go on the wayside the perfect theology or I'm no wait till everything is just right and then I'm going to move. I think God's not going to bless that second versus much thank you for listening to today's episode of revived facilities said was narrated by Vincent Silva. He is a native from southern new. Mexico now lives with his wife almost thirty seven years and five children in Boise Idaho. He's retired from the New Mexico public schools and also retired from the air force.

5-3-2020 Worship Service
"So I hello to everyone wherever you may be and I know that hopefully before long we'll be able to be back together kind of strange to be here this morning and pretty much empty church. But that's just with the people I know not empty with his spirit and I know that he says that he will always be with us to the end of the world and I know that he can be with us today wherever we might be us. Put our faith and trust in him and give him the honor and praise for what he has done for all of us and I hope that everything is going well with you. If there's anything that we can do to help any of you if you're in need of anything please let us so. We'll begin the service this morning with saying number two hundred and forty two. I want you to sing along with us there in your home number. Two hundred and forty two wonderful words of life again to me on words of Led me more beauty see lives words. T then do rude words. Wonderful words wonderful beautiful words more nervous lords wonderful ally cry. Snoop BLESSED ONE GAME. Use full words of law said this to the call of Lie. All Free Move to beautiful words. New Words wonder fool. Beautiful words. Wonderful Birds sweetly echoes. God's call wonderful All Part Eastern. Live you Jeez. So slow for beautiful wonderful Wonderful Day. Full words words wonder fool words of. I want us to think about that. The song that we're just saying saying them over again to me and if we can keep that in mind as we go through each and every day wonderful words of life and where do we receive. And where do we get those wonderful words of life right here in this book? He hasn't recorded for us. And we can receive that and we can also communicate with him. Let me more of their beauty. See in is that what we're asking for today to be able to draw closer to him to see more of the beauty of his work and not man's were but the beauty of the work of Jesus Christ and God the Father Hereupon near he says words of life and beauty. Teach me faith and duty to think about the words. That's in this book again. The words of life. Teach ME A and duty. You know we have been talking about in the last couple weeks. Here we've the sermons have been a phone. What our Lord has taught his people while he was here on the earth and how he left this books recorded so that it can continue to teach his people and teaching us what our duty is and how we can have faith in Him. And what is our duty is to walk with. Jesus Christ our Lord to walk in the spirit to be filled with the spirit and let the spirit directness in all of our works in everything we do. And we can't claim Moses are works but we can claim it as the works of the spirit that is within us that he has given to us when we ask him to come into our life when we accepted him as our savior when we repented of Our sans and he gave us forgiveness and he gave us that comforter. Dan We are made new. We are a new man. Oh things have passed away. We have been quickened. He says made alive from the dead works that they we were in before we received that spirit of the Holy Ghost I'm reminded of place in scriptures where it talks about. Some of the cycles went into an area there and they saw these people and they were believers but they said there has the Holy Ghost came opponent and they said we don't even know whether or not there be a wholly go so they set down and they taught them he said we have just been taught about what John's words were repents for your sands but they sat down there and they discourse to them on what Jesus Christ had done here on the air. And that's what we WANNA do. Today is discourse on what Jesus Christ did while he was here. Bonier and how he made are calling and election sure through him by making the choice to go to him to get out of our sinful life by accepting Jesus Christ then we can all walk in that spirit he says ask and you shall receive C. Can you show fine? Knocking shall be opened unto you. We talk about these things constantly and I want to continue to talk about them. If we read through the scriptures. There we see all these things brought over and over and over the different letters and the different pistols that are written all of these things were just constantly being reminded to the people in those day and we need it reminded to us today so that we all know and understand what his work was Dan and what it is. Today it has not changed and friends. There is no confusion in his work. His is the truth of God. And it's laid out right here in this book and if we are confused it there is something wrong now. I know that there are things that we all have a perfect understanding on. We'll get it when we need it but I know that there is not a lot of confusion. No confusion in his work his trews are will stand time and eternity and it says they are nothing more but the truth of God the word of God and if it's the truth of God how could there be confusion in it. So if we have confusion in our mind today let's go to the Lord and let him straighten it up for us and he says promised that he would seek and you shall find. We've opened this morning. We're going to read some here in. Corinthians we're GonNa read here some in the third chapter of First Corinthians this morning begin with. Let's read just a few few verses here in that second chapter starting at thirteen verse. Their second chapter of First Corinthians says which things also we speak not in words which man's wisdom teach it but which the Holy Ghost teachers comparing spiritual things with spiritual exactly what we were talking about here. That what what we do now after that we have received that spirit of the Holy Ghost is not man's wisdom by which the Holy Ghost teachers and this is what the Holy Ghost gives to US pairing spiritual things with spirit. God is a spirit and we must worship him in spirit and we must be relying him in all things but the natural man receive a not things of the spirit of God and we cannot receive that the natural man cannot receive the spirit of God on his own. We've got to repent. We've got to make a choice that this is what I want more than anything else. I won't the power of gone. I WANNA repent of my sins. I won't accept Jesus Christ and worse we come to that point and once we do that then then we can receive that spirit of the Holy Ghost that comes from God. The father through his son. Jesus Christ but the natural man receive a not the things of the spirit of God for their foolishness onto him. Neither can he know him? Because they are spiritually discerned in that man with that natural mind cannot receive that we've got to get down at the foot of the Cross and say that we are in a lost undone condition and then ask and he sees you shall receive but he that is spiritual judge with all things yet he himself is judged of no man for who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Cam but we have the mind of Christ and once we have received that spirit and are allowing that comforter in us then to work he says then we have the mind of Christ he says I. He says you have been adopted into his kingdom into his family into his church. That spiritual church. You are a son of God when we receive that now. Do you think that we can be here and be filled with that spirit worshiping in that spear and proclaiming we have the mind of Christ and then living in Carl way constantly in seeing not putting that off that will not work but we have the mind of Christ and that can only be by becoming and being made new through the spirit and I could not speak into you as unto spiritual and carnal even as unto Babes in cries? Now there is a problem here he says. I cannot speak to you spiritually. Because they had that carmine. There was things there that was not right and they were meeting to be brought forth and he says but unto you unto Karnal even as unto Babes and crimes are not where you should be and are we where we should be today Ken. Lord speak to US spiritually. Do you have a spiritual ears. Can you hear what he is saying? Today he that hath ears to hear let him hear is mentioned throughout this Bible. I have fed with milk and not with meat for handed to you. Were not able to bear. Neither yet are able. I want you to listen carefully. He says fed with milk and not with me. He's been very careful to just feed them the truth of God and very easy way for them to understand he says you have not been able to bear the strong meat and what he is doing is comparing that to a child when a child is young. When you bring forth a newborn Bain cannot tolerate. The justice system cannot tolerate the strong meet that an adult can tolerate even though it has to have the nutrients in the things to be able to grow. It cannot tolerate that for several months for quite a while. It only takes the milk the things they're they can help it to grow and help it to develop and that's what he said there that for a young Christian and people they're just beginning in the word he says. I Fed with milk so that you could be able to grow spiritually as it was necessary and not be overcome. If you gave that baby the strong meet. It would not be able to jess those things and it might eat. It would be bad for it. And that's what he was talking about here. He said if he had done those things he said you would not be. You would not have been able and might have deterred your growth spiritually. Bonani goes on to say he says now hints for Hint to Heather to you not able to bury it. He's telling them that they should have been but he had fed him with that they had time to grow but he says you are not able to bear it and he says neither yet. Are you able somewhere along the line? They were not walking and they were not growing and being nourished by that spirit or leading that spirit nourish them as they should. And you'll see in this vein next verse what the problem was. He's for you or yet karnal for year yet con. Have that carnal mind that he says that's an enemy to God. It's an enemy to the spirit of of the holy goes he says for you or your carnal and he goes on to tell things but nonetheless. Let's look and see what we look like in our day. Do we still have that Karnal Mine? Are we still wanting to worship the things of this world or allowing things of this world to be our God and worshiping the creature more than the Creator now? Let's be careful for year yet. Carl if you aren't able to take that strong meet today spiritually. There's a problem you're yet caramel for whereas there is among you envy and strife and divisions are you not Carlin. Walk as man. He's just bring it out very plain and clear to this group of people that there is a problem there and Lord will bring it out very plain and clear to US friends. Take it to him. If there's a problem with your carnal mind so that you are not able to receive that strong spirit tool me. Go to him. He says four there is among new envy and strife divisions are you not carbon walk as man for a while once I am with Paul in another Iowa policies. Are you not all or are you not carnal now? There is a certain thing here that he wanted to bring to their attention. That was going on there but I will ask to look at it and take it right to our own sale today. This might not have anything to do with. Wouldn't probably today in what was going on there. But what is carnally in your mind today. What are you worse being? What are you not willing to lay aside that? He his warned us about in that he has talked to us about and said these enjoy carnal. Let's put it aside so that it will not hinder you in your walk with me now. What he was going he was telling these people he says for one safe. I'm Paul and another Iowa policy. Are you not carnal. Who then is Paul? And who is a powerhouse but ministers by whom you believed even as the Lord gave to every man I have planted a policy water but God gave the increased and I want to all understand that today go back and even think about what he was saying here. In that day there was people there that felt like that. There was different groups of people in the church in this community. Some said well I heard the word from Paul and maybe I was baptized of him. Other said well I heard it of Apollo's and I'm better or we got a better understanding folks if there's anything different from what this book says he says this is where we need to go to and listen to the word comes through his servants here phone nearer than to fiddle lines up with this. That lines up with my word here in this book then accepted skiing coming from me but he said here. Don't be as these people he says. Now who is a policy and who is Paul and you might look around throughout the world today. Say who are these people that is giving this word? Nothing he says but ministers by whom you believe people ministering the word of God must be sure that where you are going and who you're listening to is a true minister of he is and it is not as we have been warned recently in several occasions of false teacher a false profit but to be sure that it is coming here is he says but ministers by whom you believe treat teaching and preaching the Gospel according to the word of God even as the Lord gave to every man. Now you believe. And then it's the Lord that gives to you every every all of the help. All of the power he said. I have planted a policy water but God gave the increase. God is the only way we can receive anything spiritually. It comes from God. The father through his son. Jesus Christ to you and me but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that plan if anything neither he water but God give with the increase. We're nothing no more than anything else. I just have a job to do to Minister his word to you into all it. We hear my voice today. I beg and I pray that it is his words that I speak today words that he would have spoken to encourage you to come on and fight the good fight a fe to encourage you in the trues that he has laid out here that we can all see victory in Jesus Christ now he the planet and he water are one and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own Labor. Now to the thank again about that. Now let's be sure he says now he that planet and he that water are one now. Paul knew who he was talking about here a policy and he knew that he was walking. Both of them was walking in spirit. Both of them was teaching the same Gospel. The same trues there was no confusion. And these two men in what they were teaching and preaching in that day and Paul wanted to just bring it out very plain and clear for we are laborers to gether with God. And that's what I want us to everyone to be at today friends. Let's all lay aside the differences. Whatever it might be and less be at war with God now. We cannot compromise the truth and say well. I'm going to accept this and accept that you cannot do that. We for we are laborers together with God walking in the spirit. You're God's husbandry your gods building. Now that's what we come to then when we receive that he says your Gods building according to the grace of God which is given unto me as a wise master building. I have laid the foundation and another building their own but let every man take heed how he build their own. That is extremely important for salt today. Friends and this is my goal of what I would want to be is do the same thing if what Paul said here. According to the grace of God which has given them to me and into the grace of God the power of God the spirit of God that has been given unto me to be his minister here as a wise master builder and that is only the wisdom of the spirit of the Holy Ghost Nets what Paul was speaking about their then. He was a wise master builder because he had received that power from God he says I have laid the foundation. I have talked to you. I have given you the truth. I have talked to you about what Jesus Christ did. High came here to the wor how he lived here and he overcame all things high was preached and taught for a period of three years and wonderful miracles that he did and how he is the savior of the world and how he is said that all that believe Abon Ham and come to him he says shall be saved but then he goes on and he also tells us that if you believe in him and if you love him you have that proper love he says keep my same and he goes on and he says and we ran last Sunday. Say My word and you do them. You will build a phone that foundation that he's talking about here he says I have laid. The foundation laid the foundation the spiritual foundation out so people could hear and then if they hear those words and they do the things he asked for them to do. He says you are building your spiritual life up on that solid rock and the gates of hail cannot prevail against him. Satan cannot prevail against it all of the power that Satan has. We'll be cast down because you have built upon that foundation that has been laid out in front of you by the trues that are read in Discourse Dome Right here out of this book here today. I have laid the foundation in another building their own. Now what are you build a known? Are you building would double or? Are you building those precious stones building with gold and silver and precious stones? Are you building upon that foundation? Spiritual Work. Are you able to take that strong? Made and grow spiritually and encourage others to grow spiritually for other foundation. Can no man lay than that is laid? Which is Jesus Christ now? Don't you to listen to that? There is no other foundation that can endure. I'M GONNA put add that to it that is laid. Which is Jesus? Christ go back up into that tent verse but let every man take heed how he build with their own for other foundation can no man lay that is laid. Which is Jesus Christ? Now that is the rock that is the words the words of truth. His Commandments is the foundation that we have to build a poem. If we won't be able to overcome say now penny man build their own iphone this foundation gold silver precious stones would had stubble now. What are you building opponent? He says what are you doing in your life. He goes back to that eight verse and he says every man shall receive us his own reward according to his Labor. Now what are we allowing the spirit to do within US? Are we allowing that spirit of the holy goes to labor and bring forth good works? Are we allowing Satan to come in and bring forth seeing in our lives? He says but let everyman take heed how he build their own for other foundation. Can no man lay than that is lane? Which is Jesus Christ? Now any Ma'am build upon this foundation gold silver precious stones Wood Hay and stubble. Every man's work shall be made manifest and your work will be made manifest at that final day may be made manifest in this life also but I know that final day for the for the day shall declare you because shall be revealed by fire and the fire shall try every man's work of what sword it is that final day that fire come down and consume the wicked but it will have no power over the writers. Those have built that gold and silver and precious stones upon that foundation and that foundation of Jesus Christ is the only true that can be built there. Now what are you GonNa do? Are you going to use that foundation? Are you going to just let it? Lay there and build opponent would hay and stubble that will be destroyed. If any man's work abide which he hit built their own he shall receive a reward for it. If any man's work should be burned she'll suffer loss but he himself shall be saved yet so as by fire and I believe there. He's talking about right here while we're here on the air that if any man's worked abide he showed which he has built their own he shall receive the reward and he will he'll be able to receive the reward of walking in the peace of God while he is here on the earth but if any man's work shelby burned and as if we see we have made stay we have seen and we take it to the Lord. He has that fire that consuming fire. They can destroy that while we're here in the land of the living and take it away burning up and we'll suffer the loss. Whatever it might be while we're here in in this life if we are building wood Hay and stubble on it we will not have that peace and that hope and happiness that we had until we get that cleaned up we will have to suffer the laws go through whatever it might be to be cleaned up appear but he self then shall be saved if so as by fire and that is the fire of the spirit of the Holy Ghost. That is the fire that he can use now to burn up our sins while we're here in the land of the living. Don't wait until it is eternally to lay. And when the wicked comeback here phonier but at fire comes down from heaven and consumed Sam. Don't wait until then take it now and let it be burned and suffer. Whatever lost there is to suffer and be saved in the end. No you not that. You're the Temple of God that the spirit of God dwells within you now stall to think about that. He's talking about here. That people that accepted Jesus cries. That is the only time that we can say that. We are at Temple of God when we have accepted that and received the spirit of the Holy Ghost he says no you not that you're the temple of God and the spirit of God dwells in you. Do you know that today? Do you know that friends? That is the question that should be ringing in our ears today. No you not that. You're the Temple of God now. He's reminding them there. And the spirit of God dwelling thing you you've repented you've asked for that and I hear it is now now. Listen now what he says. If any man defile the Temple of God him show God destroy for the Temple of God is holy. Which Temple Ye are? Now we can't now we've received that spirit of the Holy Ghost he says you are a temple of God the spirit of God dwells in you. Then he reminds them he says not. If any man the foul the Temple of God himself God destroy if we defile that with this with C. N. and crucify him a fresh. If we take it in we go back to the House that we came out on he says then God him shot God destroy for Temple of God is holy which temple you are. Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seem to be wise in this world let him become a food that he may be wise. If you look around you see people and they. They put their faith and trust in their own south in what they feel like that. They are doing good of their own staff. He said let him become a food that they may be wise. Let him look up on his work as foolish work but the work of God as a wives were coming from master builder a wise master builder that he might be wives looking down upon ourselves that we're nothing and our works are filthy. Rags are works are carnal mind. Our Karnal works is what I'm talking about but we can let those things become foolish to us and then we can become wives spiritually and we can be strong in that were for. The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. Was He just saying right there? Wisdom of this worl- his foolishness with God for it is written. He take the wires in their own. Craftiness the wives thinking that we can do these things on our own. He says he'll take them in their own crackers in their own wickedness. They will be taken for. The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God less. Be seeking actor the wisdom of the world to come he says seek ye first the kingdom above and he says all of these other things will be added to you and not looking opponent is what we are doing that. It's added but looking opponent because I am walking and doing things that he has asking me to do. I am seeking the kingdom above and relying upon him then to give me all the things that I need to show me what I should do and to lead guide and direct me through this life and again and Lord knows the thoughts of the wise that they're vein look around today. Can you see how vain the thoughts of the wives are today in in the time that we're going through today look around and just see what is going on? And how man in his own image. Thanks how how much knowledge and understanding that he has but we can see they. God's work is way more powerful than man and man does not know anything they think they know things and they'll say things in a few days later you'll see something that is sad totally different because here the Lord. No thoughts of the wives their vein put our thoughts and our. Fay in our trust in. Jesus Christ our Lord free and and don't worry then he says don't worry about what happens to this body. He's his worry about what will happen to the body and worrying behalf. Fear about the one that actor he has taken your life he can cast you into hail be seeking him out now so that you can be filled with that comforter that he says that I have to offer to all of those that will come to me. All of those except me. I'll give to you that comforter and your works will not be hang therefore let no man glorying men for all things are yours. Don't glory ourselves and glory and what man says but put our faith and trust in glory in Jesus Christ and then be willing whatever happens. It'll be good for us. If we leave this world. We're just going right into eternal life. Why would we want to stay here on the C? Incur starter right on and longer than he would have for us to be here in this dreadful condition that you and I might be a yes. We enjoy life. I enjoy life and I want to live as long as the more wants me to live here on earth and I want to be while I am living my life to be his work hero. Near-earth not mine. But I wanted to be his work in me and then I can be as he says here therefore let no man. Glory in Men Not Glory in my work for all things are yours. All the power of God is mine. All the power of God can be yours you can use it to overcome. Satan in every single thing does not matter what it is and year. Christ and Christ is God. Look at what. He's talking about their friends. Listen carefully what he says he says whether Paul or policies or seafood or the world or life or dare all fe or thinks president or things to come all are yours. He's just telling you that through the spirit you can overcome all of these things and it does not matter where you hear the word if you truly accepted and be sure though that you are listening to solid sound. Bible teaching not something. That man has taken in changed so that he can justify his wicked ways here on the earth but do exactly what he is saying here. We are one. We are one with the word and that milk at sincere milk. Sincere truths of God being taught to us looking at twentieth and again the Lord knows the thoughts of the wives that they're vein therefore no man glory and men for all things are yours. All things are yours through. Jesus Christ whether Paul or policies or the world or life or death or thanks president our thanks to come. He's just brought it all together. He says doesn't matter what it is. He says all are yours. You are a free agent and you can make a choice of what you WanNa do now. If we make that choice to accept Jesus Christ all of these talking about here's the power of God. The power of God friends that are ours to use overcome and to live here Po near Earth and when he says that. And your Christ when you accept that you are Christ. You are his brother. You are a part of Christ spiritual church and then he goes right on now. I look year. He puts it all together. Unity One and you are Christ Europe part then of Christ and Christ is par. He is a part of God. So then you add cries and God are all at one if we're walking in this way if we will last side that carnal mind. Let's go back to that third bursts unless rec- unless thank about what he said they were not able to bear that strong me. Why for ye are yet karnal for. Where's there's among you envying and Stri divisions are you not Carl and Walkers Man If those things are in any one of us today he says you still have a carnal mind. Now let's get rid of those things so that then we can be for. All things are yours for then. Our Christ. You're he is and is God's power comes from God through Christ to you now. Are you in a confused state? Is there anything about that? That would be confusing. He's laid out very plain and clear friends. Let a man so account a bus as of the ministers of Christ and steers of the mysteries. God and that is where we have to accept those things today wherever it is and I must preach the truth or I am in a very dangerous position if I if I change his word into a laugh but I must preach it simple pure and free just as Paul was there. Let a man. So account of us as the ministries ministers of Christ and skewers of the mysteries of God moreover it is crowded and spirits that a man be found faithful and I must be found faithful in work and in trues and in following him and you must also be found faithful in that but with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged view or of Man's judgment judge not my own sale for. I know nothing of myself yet. My not here by justified but he that judges me is the Lord and I know that what Paul was saying. There is the word that God had word that he gave to him and that spirit. That comes from Jesus. Christ he says that's what judges me. That's what judges my work. I don't try to judge my work of how good I am or whatever he says. Fry nothing of my sale yet on my night here by justified he said yes. I know nothing myself but am I not justified in the things that I am doing? But he judges me is lor therefore judge nothing before the time until the Lord Com who both will bring to light hidden things of darkness. And we'll make manifest the canceled the heart and that and then show every man how praise of God and these things brethren I have in a figure trans transferred to myself into a policy for your savings that you might learn in us not to think of man above that which is written that no one of you be puffed up for one against another. And he's just caution very heavy about that and he says now I have code you these things and myself than Apollo's we are ministers in. We are teachers but he says there. I want to tell you these things. I don't judge myself but word of God and his spirit is what judges me and he says that you might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written that no one of you be puffed up for one against mother and don't you be puffed up about where you are learning where you are getting. You has to come. The increase has to come from God. The father not through me I can encourage you. I can help you own your work. I can tell what God is given to us today and I can help you to interpret the truth that he gives to me. But it's up to you whether you accept it is up to you whether or not you take it to him and let you use that. Meet Dan that. Strong me to grow spiritually for who've make the to differ from another what has dow that. Dow did not receive naive dentistry. Save it why now. Glory as the Dow has not received it. If you're received you've received this from this spirit of the Holy Ghost and you are now temple of God he said. And what has vowed? That now did not receive. What are you that you didn't receive from God? Any of that. That is doing good work in all came from him now. Dow dentist receive it. Why does now glory? Why are you glory in yourself as is as if Dow has not received it? Why are you in yourself as if you didn't receive it from him but it's because of your good works? You cannot do that at all. You've got to receive it and know that it is coming from God. The father through. Jesus Christ you are Christ. And Christ is God's and that's how you've received that now you're full. Now you're rich. You have reigned as kings without us and I would to God. You did rain that we might also rain with you. You've reigned in your own mind. But he's he's now he gives back and he says I would to God. You did rain have that true reign of the spirit of the holy goes that we might rain with you that we might be fellowship with you for. I think that God has sent forth us the apostles last as it were appointed today for we are made a spectacle into the world and two angels into men for where foods for Christ's sake in man's lives he says we're food for Christ's sake but you're wise in Kreis. We're weak but you're strong your honorable but we're despised. Why was he telling them all things? Because HE SAYS WE'RE FOODS FOR CHRIST's sake man looked upon but he says you are wising Christ man looked opponent and they were looking up on their their own selves as it. Look what we're doing and we're wise in this but it was nothing more but hypocritical worked. Well look at that. He says we're week. We know that we're weak. And we have to pin totally upon the Lord. He said to be you are strong. You feel like you can do these things on your own your honorable you feel like because I am walking this way and because I have proclaimed Christ or whatever and I'm trying to show that of bone words he says you feel like you're honorable and people may look up on us that that he says but we are despite asked why are they despised because they walked in the truth and they condemned sin in whoever. It was did not matter where their work. If they're teachings condemned saying it just happened. And if my teachings today can see condemn saying in you and you despise me for I am no differ from the apostle. That was speaking of here. I am a minister of Jesus. Christ ministering his words today and I WANNA be weakened my own self that strong in the power of gone not strong in my own mind not strong in my own works but strong in his works even into this present hour. We both hunger and thirst in her naked in or buffeted and have no certain dwelling place. He just wanted him to understand that even into this hour here and all that he looked upon as being a servant and a Minister of God he says we are still both hungering and thirsting after righteousness and we know that we need to be clothed upon with that spirit. In our own south we have spiritual nakedness but we must be hungering for righteousness we must be thirsting for righteousness and we must be wanting to be clothed upon with the armor of the spirit of the holy goes and are buffeted for our mistakes. Didn't matter he says those things are brought our teaching. We're both and he says we have no certain dwelling place we willing to just do. What ever the Lord asked for us to do wherever it might send us whatever he might have to do and I are labor working with our own hands being reviled. We blast being persecuted. We suffer. It doesn't matter what he says. He says our work our labor so that other men don't have to try to keep us up. He says we are laboring working with our own hands. Being reviled we bless people reviling them because of the spirit because of the things that they were speaking and teaching. He didn't say that they hated them. He didn't say that. We revolve back against them. Since we blessed them being persecuted we suffer it and I think about all the things that Paul had gone through and what had happened to how he was whipped. Numerous Times beat. Think about just a moment here. We have today and we might murmur and complain about a little discomfort that we might have Alberta. We might not be able to go into mangle in higher. Love One with the other but we can still hear his word. We can still draw to ham we can still receive the power of the spirit of the Holy Ghost. Think about what Paul went through. There was times when he went. And he preached a sermon. Like we're preaching today and people would come in and arrest him and take him away and then go beat him and cast him into prison. Oh and he says here being persecuted we suffered and he gave praises to God. There was one time there where that taking place and he had silence to believe it was had been cast into prison after they have been beaten midnight hour in the middle of the night. Instead of they're complaining about what was taking place they were singing praises to God persecuted but suffered to be brought upon that someone might be able to hear the word of God and I want you to look what took place by Paul and going through that suffering that persecution the jailer when he saw the power of God what it did when the doors open and the shackles fell off an all. These things in the people did not lead. The jailer comes running into Paul and I believe he must've understood something about why there imprison that he was proclaiming. Jesus cries him crucified and him our Savior. And that's what I wore proclaim to each and every one of you today. Jesus Christ came here to the Earth to be your savior when he was hanging on that crawls he died and he's right before he says it is finished. And what was he talking about? Man's redemption here of on the Earth was finished the opportunity now for man to be able to go to Godfather through. Ham was finished that opportunity. Now the word that God had for Jesus to do here Bonier so that then we would have that opportunity to know him. He says he is finished. The price has been paid now. It's up to you to come to me and accept me and he said if you come and accept me I will accept you. How will open the door and my father then will say to you a comforter the spirit of the Holy Ghost but jailer came in there and his word or this. What must I do to be saved? And that's what I want us all to be asking today. That's what I want you to be asking. What must I do Lord to be saved Paul Allen Repent and be baptized? You and your whole house. He said a bully and they did. They believed and they came in and immediately there. He believed and his whole house of baptized and he asked what Mr Paul discourse to him and told him in and then the next day the magistrates and the high priest whoever was had beaten them and put them in. Prison came or sent word to let them go. They didn't even come down. But the power of God and impulsive. No he said you beaten us on condemned and being Roman you come down here and release. A-as yourself the power of God. They're walking and working and they had to come. And do that. And Paul and Silas them went on preaching and teaching the wonderful words of life that is available to all WanNa hear it today. They were persecuted but they suffered been defamed wintry. We're made to fill to the world. And of the ask house off scouring all things in to this day I write not these things to shame you but as my beloved sons. I'll warn year as a parrot would warn his sons of dangerous things that might hurt them naturally a things it might even take their life a beloved father. One has great love for that son or daughter. They will warn them of these things and they will instruct them how to avoid it. And that's what Paul speaking off here. He says I write not least thanks to shame you he was telling them and talking to them about things that was right there within that group of people that they needed to clean up bad conditions and there may be things right within us that needs to be cleaned up take it to the Lord and let him show you how to clean it up and let's be one with him. He says I right not to shame you but as my beloved son. Zeus I'll warn you and that is what I want you to look on the things that I am speaking to you today as my beloved friends brothers in Christ Jesus how warn you about that carnal mind and about not putting him first in everything and by not loving him and keeping his commandments as we should. How warn you in these things because I want to see you on the other side? I WanNa be there with you and be victorious. What Day that'll be when we are there with Jesus Christ our Lord and our Savior for though you have ten thousand instructors. In Christ's you have not many fathers for Christ Jesus I Have Begotten You through the Gospel and I don't you listen carefully. This was back in the days there Paul but he says though you have ten thousand instructors in Christ and we can have that today you can have thousands. You can have hundreds of people instructing you in certain ways of Christ but he says you have not many father and go back to that other verse there. What is a father? Do a father will warn his children about the dangers of things here on the earth. He says a father a spiritual father will warn you and teach you things here. He says four in Christ Jesus I Have Begotten You through the Gospel Airport in Christ. Jesus I have fathered you through the Gospel of Christ through the Gospel of God is what Paul's saying there to the people. He is a father to them. He says and warning now in teaching now he's not just an instructor that might have something to tell you. That might not be accurate. He says I am a father. I Have Begotten New for in Christ. Jesus I Have Begotten You through the Gospel through the teachings that I have given to you you have been born in the spirit of the holy. Ghost is what he's talking about. And that's what I want to be in every one of you today is through the teachings that I am given to you that comes from Jesus Christ they are born in the Gospel. You are born in the spirit of the holy goes you have that new birth wherefore I beseech you be followers of me what he's talking about their Paul was wanting them to be followers of him as he knew he was walking in that spirit and I want you to be followers of me is follow. Christ and examined made examined my works. And if you see something different from following Christ bring it to me. I need to know how to be in a condition that I am following Christ so that you can follow the trews and the things that I speak to you for this calls. I have sent into you Timothy Timothy. Who is my beloved son and faithful in the Lord who show bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ as I teach everywhere and in every church. Now listen carefully. Look at that and there's nothing wrong with what Paul was saying there at all now. Paul was also telling these people he says. Now for this calls I Have Begotten. You through the Gospel and he says wherefore I beseech you I am asking You I am telling you to follow me. Be a follower of me because I am walking and following Christ and he says now I'm going to send to you to mow theus. Who is my beloved son? Who has another Son That I have begotten spiritually? He was not his natural son but he was one that he had worked with. And I believe that he had gotten him spiritually and a and fight for in the Lore. He was faithful in truth. Paul could see and he knew that works were there the fruits were there in. This man was not judging him. He was just looking at the fruits and he says by their fruits. You know them who shall bring into you. Remember of my ways he says into tomorrow theus will come there and he's going to teach you and talk to you and he says he will bring you into the remembers. He will show you that Ma. Remembrance of my ways which be in Kreis Demo- theus would become in there and he was faithful. He was a beloved son his his works. There also would show and teach people to remember that works that are in. This man was what was the works. That was in Paul as that teach everywhere in every church and that is what I want to be doing. Today is teaching wherever I go leading. Spirit dwell within me and let that be teaching others. They all have opportunity to know. Christ Jesus our Lord and our Savior but I will come to you shortly if the Lord Wheel. I'm sorry I skipped verse now. Some are puffed up as though I would not come to you. Some there were puffed up he saves all you can say some. There was not walking as they should be. There were not looking at these things they should and he says they're puffed up in their own mind. They had something wrong. They were not walking in accordance to the way Paul had been telling them he says but I will come into you shortly if the Lord Wheel and we'll know not speech them which are puffed up but the power he says I'll know and he says we're not come. I will be coming in the power of God. And whatever it is there will condemn San in whoever and whatever for the Kingdom of God is not in word but in power the Kingdom of God is not just the words that I might say but it will come with power remember. I believe we read last week there. About how the people looked upon Lord after he had talk that wonderful sermon on the mount and they were astonished. They were amazed that the things in the tall and he taught it power. He taught it with authority. And that's the authority in the power. That Paul was talking about there that he had to teach and preach and when he came there he would use that power to condemn sand and who whoever and whatever it might be for. The Kingdom of God is not word but in power what we shall I come into you with a rod or in love and in a spirit of meekness. And what do you want today in your life? Three Inns God to come to you today with a rod rod to correct your wrong. They know what that was. What you started with the Rod there in that day when people chows out of order or whatever he did not show respect did not do whatever they use the rod owning. And he's had Paul saying now. Do you want me to come unto you with the Rod or in love and in spirit of meatless he says now. Warned you these things now. It's up to you now whether or not you accept it whether or not you get out of this puffed up condition that you are Ian it's up to you. The power of God is there and he says when I come back our either how the Rod or the love and in the spirit of meekness the power of God is there and here today and it's ready to work and whoever in in wherever you might be the Rod of God to come down upon you do you love and spirit of maintenance to be there and overcome all things for you. There are things that was going on in that church. It was very bad. There may be things that's going on right here and there are things going on throughout the world and people proclaiming to be Christians but accepting Alah and doing things that goes in contrary to the word here and teaching people that it's okay to do things so k. To live in a manner that Lord has condemn teaching people. That it's Okay. You can go out and kill babies before they are born that goes indirect opposition and these things are brought up. Us constantly. Why because it needs. We need to be warned. And don't compromise with seeing in any way how the love of God and us. But we can't condone San. Paul was not going to condone seeing anything here. He said he would come and he would come in the power of God and that is exactly what will happen to us. The power of God will call us out or the power of gone. We'll clean us up. The choice is yours. What do you WANNA use? Do you only use it? The power of God to take you away or do you want the power of God to give you eternal life and to give power to see the power of God will allow you to leave him. It'll allow you to have that. Carnal mind but it will also allow you to overcome it. If you want it God will never take you away from his people as long as you want to stay there and as long as you have that repentant mind so let's keep the and let's use the power to overcome sate in every situation that is that could be brought against us. The price was paid on the cross redeemed through. Jesus Christ our Lord. We'll finish the service today. Sing a song and sing this red book number. Three hundred and thirty three in the name of the song is there is a great day coming and WanNa stall to understand what a great day that that will be for the righteous.

The people can draw closer to him and put our faith and trust and encourage others to do that. Unless let it be an awakening in the truth in the Church of Jesus Christ not something that tears us down but less let it be an awakening and look forward to today that we can come back and be in fellowship one with the other but we can fellowship today with our Lord and Savior and let's keep their unless use that throughout the upcoming days. Let us pray to God. The father through Jesus Christ our Lord. Thank you for the words that you have left written for us to warn us of how sub to Satan can be and how that he will destroy us if we allow. If we don't use the power you have to give to all of mankind that ass and we can use that power and we can build upon you upon Jesus Christ and we can see victory and help us to be positive in your work and encourage others in your work and to condemn seeing in every situation. Whatever it might be. And we want you to condemn us so that we can be broken here in this life and then we can have eternal life through praise your name and thank you for all. You've done for us and show us what you'd have for us to do that. We can help to promote your kingdom here on the earth lower we asking your name. Jesus Christ Amen.

We'll we'll offset the sleep deprivation I have experienced in this. Oh you know what I think. You're absolutely correct see. It's what people this week. Our people our colleagues are practicing this week at sea yes rate eight. It's just that They once they get on the plane home from Vegas assuming they don't live in Vegas than the they're just completely free of that. I need to step into that car. Karnal Carnal Desire. But you know when you're anticipating the arrival all of a new roommate. Well Okay you will have to pay everything for nearly arguably the the the. The child is already remade. The most like clingy digging room in my really violating your personal schimmel spreading Miami's houses I call it my meat suit. Yes taking up room. I mean this is. Why haven't been like cold at all this winter? Because I'm I just have a heater in front of me that's just been like generating heat. I mean anyway. This is the Florida eye on complaints about Being pregnant I just have one of those like oil fed like electric heaters. I got an Amazon seventy bucks by the way they're awesome. They're way way better than the regular space heater. Whether that's that's your next pitch. You could do an article that comparing the two. BTU's reliability you see. It's never too soon to start monetize this child. I and and it's and it's much you're being a much better parent doing this way by getting them into pageants or getting into commercial additions. That's like yeah I've just shaking pigging right head for the listeners. Just over here with like my head in my hands. Just because I'm just thinking I mean okay uh-huh and what not to rant on the record. Okay listen most. Most people know that I'm having most people know what I'm having at this point Which is fine originally was gonNA keep it a secret but then I decided May Whatever but yeah well and I'm going to have? I need to know what situation I'm getting into the when this person is here. And what they're you're going to have to deal with in terms of societal norms and the way like people look at them etcetera but ever since. I told people that it's girl I've I've been getting a lot of Little Princess mentions. Oh she's GonNa break all kinds of hearts I can tell yeah. Let's Oh oh she's already breath shortage three different people sons. And my answer. My answer is what about your daughter would if she likes your daughter you know it's just like I'm trying to hello. This is is your people's version of tender just like different like ox and land and livestock to swipe through the Lens that I will get that will present to that role the Dow. It's it's also just general American discourse around the gender of the the the sex organs of the child that I'm having anyway wasn't planning our talk about absolutely. That's my you know this is this is this is so laser focused on Google and collecting data and information. How close to the? Ah How careful are you going to be about making sure that the kids for the kids photo and name like don't appear anywhere. 'cause I know I know people that They they don't they they still. They like using instagram and whatever to send these postcards to their friends and family as we all do do but they're very very careful that they'll they'll never show their child's face they people who know them know what the child's name is but there is a substitute name that they use was like for their eighty dollars or eighty thousand followers. Do you have a data security plan for place for silly. Did discuss this Actually you know within the first the first time I tested positive on those sticks Discuss our going to do this. And and I think I'm going to use their first name just their first name kind of the same way I do like with my husband. Ryan referred him in the public And I really WANNA avoid their picture being outside of like a close friends group like instagram. Lets you do close close friends on stories and so basically if I ever post a picture of the child I wanted to be strategically like no face back. Only only I have a friend. Who does this Actually I'm sure people who listeners podcasts. No the person that I'm referring to. But he does this with his daughter her and I think it's kind of clever way. Because he wants to include her in the narrative of his life in like the things that he's talking about and he wants people to kind of see like hey. We went to Disneyland This Day or like we went. We did this. We had this really fun day together which I think is fair. Because that's his personal story and he he wants to talk about this time you spend with his kid but it doesn't necessarily mean like in like I've never seen this kid's face because they've never met. I never met her in person then so I will never see her face unless I meet her in person and I kind of want the same thing for if you get a Christmas card. It's because you you know. You are on that list of people that I trust not to like exploit the fears of my elder son. I know that's dish at minimum. It means that I trust you enough that I'm going to put the return address on this so that it comes back to me. It doesn't river up to you exactly and and I do know that a lot of my friends who are like on instagram. They do private accounts because they put a lot about their kids And on the flip aside I also know folks who used their kids like As models in their in their businesses and stuff. And that's again and that's exactly the choice that it's up to each family but being that I and my husband are also both like extremely online people. We don't want to make make that decision for the child because we're we're both extremely online. I mean I met him through. You know through live journal like back in the day. Hey We're both people who have spent a lot of time just like the Internet is where we socialize. You can honestly say that you quarter the old fashioned way Ask another these mobile APPS. No no it was. It was live journal via aim right because you can put your AOL instant message screen name and your choice in what he his feelings on every single track of three different cure albums before. Yeah Yeah Live. Journal was a lot That's by the way if I ever do I actually think somebody did this already. Eight so perhaps. I'm I think somebody did this here. Locally is what I mean but I've always wanted to do like a show or something where I like. Read My old life the journal entries because they're just so I mean their diary entries effectively. It's just that back. Then you could have it go specifically to just just fifteen people that you trusted which I really glad by the way recording. This Day. That twitter released. This is not a twitter podcast but recording this today. That twitter released And what Gita Jackson from Kaku called Live Journal Features Live Journal privacy features because now you can choose like exactly who who your tweets go do so if you all want to go to like the twenty two people who agree with you politically. Then it'll just go to those twenty two people To which I'm like. This is great like this is what the. Why can't I think like gives me an article idea? I need right down. Okay twitter twitter. Is I think a lot of the computing in power is devoted to receiving the request. How about you let us edit are tweets and turn it into something else it's a mandate we've got thousands and thou- it's even become a mean the give us the ability to target tweets by region based on a hash taken? No no I think it did say at a tweet. That's really only said no listening. We're listening we will let you have stickers on now again. I didn't but I never got any stickers by the way so must be nice for you folks anyway. Let's that's all that's all good stuff. I'm sure that will be listening. Everyone knows this. This really is like important topics you he just gave me an idea. That actually did jot down. 'cause I know some people on the Google photos team and I'm going to suggest to like I can I can talk to them. conversationally and like one of the I know who I'm going to send this to say. I really wish that at minimum google photos and even better Google camera had the ability for me to to designate. Like you you know what faces are in my groups so I wanna say that anytime you see a face of my kid dolores I want you to automatically blur now. Keep obviously keep a copy for me but I want you to make sure that if this has ever shared anywhere outside of my google photos or made into a public public album you will automatically preemptively blur that face. Yup sure show it to me if you if you need confirmation but that's like that's that would be interesting. I think it'll be even more interesting. That were like a camera feature so that you could make sure that if you want to make sure that like facebook and instagram never snapper are are able to clock that face ever. That's that's a feature that now if they do that. I can't write about it because I was about to say this sort of feature. That'd be that'd be writing two thousand words about what an awesome proactiv was going to say. That's the feature that I mean. Google still hasn't given US fence removal in photos. And so I think that to make it up to us. Those of US die. Hards have been asking for this feature since it was announced it. One of the I google. Does I think this would be a great feature and not only that but considering what we talk about on this podcast bringing back around It would you have to make Google fall into better prices in terms of privacy controls. You'd be like look what we did for you to kind of help you. Oh so that you can trust again so you know what. Let's I'm putting that out in the author as a thing because I think if a I can do wonders I it should be able to do stuff like that especially for a company like Google which is very like these a lot of families and their advertising and like whenever we watched watch the keynote. Happy families using Google. So you know keeping me safe from the Internet we're we're going to be talking about CAS little bit later. But yeah that was one of the things that Google Selena's we have your attention point out that we do. We're not the bastards foods that the late night. COMEDIANS points out to be well okay just side side note about the ES And I he did disclose to Andy that I wanted to rant about this earlier this week as I do I just want to remind everyone would see yes is. It is the consumer electronics showcase. It say dog and pony show. There are beautifully cough dogs and perfectly brushed ponies that are just being paraded about in their best garments and and and students exactly. And that's what the tech exists for on the show floor. It exists just look at this like complete with this. Come touch this kind of thing. Let us also remember the. CBS is put on by the Consumer Trade Association. The CPA EH which is a lobbying group that spends a lot of money working with politicians to ensure that they can get favourable business laws to help companies. Like your favorite companies like Sony. Et Al in you to play nicely here in the United States so a lot of what is it C.. Sometimes I see a lot of headlines. Come out during this time name. That's like what innovations will be announced C. E. S. A.. C. Has is not about innovations. It's about here is what is going to be sold you in the next year. You're so when we talk about the Buzzword of five g you know we keep talking about it. I feel like we need to shift the discourse a little bit to to talk about the fact that we're not talking about five G. infrastructure here. We're just talking about how companies will continue to add ad five G. is like a Buzzword to everything because that's what they want to move you toward because if they move you towards five g. then you're going to get ramped up about it and then you're GonNa want the infrastructure infrastructure and you're GonNa lie you know you're going to do your part to make sure it gets whose Cell Towers get put in your neighborhood and all this stuff and I'm guilty of this by the way because I am embroiled embroiled in a battle next door about the viability of five Jenner little small town and whether or not it does melt brains mm-hmm so anyway. I just want to keep that in mind for everyone because they're always resolve these questions around see us like well. Why is this company announcing this like? They're not this. This isn't that kind of they're not there to like change the world. They're they're just to tell you like this is this is what they are planning to sell you in the next couple Boyer's and it's up it's up to the people who are at C. S. to kind of Go through the press releases and the things that are said and look for like look read between the lines is basically what I'm saying and by the way anybody can Google press releases its not journalists. Aren't the only people who have access to them. You can Google press release from any company. It's all public and you can. You can read between the lines and actually sometimes sometimes fun to read the lines themselves and Google if there's any any wines of the press release that sound like particularly snappy to Google search for that phrase and find about how often that turns up and oh good see I can drink again. That's going to be my next. You know let's see the other the other a drinking game would be a I. I'm trying to figure out how to talk about this without doing the devil's work but I'm sure you know flow. Hello about how There will always be a product or something that demos extremely really well on video and on day one of CAS everybody from like someone who has a youtube account with five thousand followers whereas to like someone who does tech coverage for like a national cable news thing will like have a special thing. Oh here I am on the here I am on the on the On the five G. Pogo stick and while you know what it really is doing and you know that okay number one. They are with the company the well known company that that is that that it has that available for press people to to to examine. They're not going could sell that. They're they're being cagey about. Oh well we have no ship dates or pricing to announce yet. They built three of those one to actually demo one to be charging charging backstage while the first one is being used and a third as a backup in case one of them breaks and they have no plans to make a fourth and no plans to sell any of them more than Theranos had by the way I think most people are kind of savvy enough to to see that There's there's a lot of announcements that are that that fit the form of an actual announcement seeing here is our new laptop here. Here are the specs of our new laptop. Here is the launch date. And here's how much it's going to be closing because it sounds like you're gonNA be. You're literally putting that in the store and we will be talking about that on. Today's podcast like literally putting those products on the shelf in the store for me to buy and so I know like this coming up. That's what the showcase is this. This is not like any talk of innovation. It's all just for me. It's all unless it's at a developer's conference because we were talking about this in relation to Google on all about android and saying like unless Google talks about at the developer's conference like I don't see it's not going to be a deep a deep dive because the developers conferences where Google goes. Okay here's how we make this thing happen and developers here's how you can implement it and the developers go into the code and then they kind of like break it apart and so we find out more and more about how this things implemented versus at a dog and pony show or it's just like put your best foot forward. Everybody look nice smile for the camera. vaseline on the teeth when you sit down sit down on the tail tale of your sport coat. Improves the whole line of your shoulders. That said that isn't that is actually a valuable tip that it it helps from broadcast news but but every time like I'm on camera like in a suit jacket and I'm sitting down. I always remember to do that. And I remember and I always end by Albert Brooks. Look myself in the camera and saying great tip I do want to just want to end that with saying that you know regardless of the fact that I am at home incubating a child I do have a bit of foam. Oh they see all the CS. It's just because it's the one time of year like it's right. It's new year. Everybody has their hair was freshly done for holidays and everybody is somewhat rested from the holidays. And so you get to see your colleagues that you don't normally get to see her. You're in a in every everybody has nothing to do with being part of the tech press or working with Berkeley intact. There are a lot of people that are in your life that are friends and you love seeing them but you live two thousand miles away. And they're not the kind of friends where they are inclined if they have a couple of days off and they're within in two hundred miles of you to make a detour to come and see you. Whereas I I do I do have plenty of friends like that man? It's reciprocal but I understand completely. If the person that I that I enjoy having lunch with like every year at their show if I find out that they are in Boston and they didn't say hey you wanna get together for reckless. I will well understand that. So yeah that's that's what I really miss about it. But that's pretty much it speaking of missing stuff finally finally solved the mystery about my my. Ah the pixel four rather Google Pixel for that review unit that I have okay this this is unfortunately another chapter in Andy's Andy's bum leg saga Now it's finally. It's getting better but unfortunately like week to week and month by month boasted day by day but only like this week. We've we've kind of like a little bit like the last week has been improved so much that I no longer have an excuse to not do the housekeeping sort of things that were like really really too painful to do like on the status of my leg and see one of the end a lot of the adaptation station of my office and my bedroom and stuff like that where basically I will admit that their their their youth there were like goat paths so to speak week. We're here is where close to simply dropped. Because I can't I can't hobble across the room to the dresser or to the hamper and and here's where a whole bunch of boxes are being stacked up and so that's what I try to get ahead. I had re- optimized in my living space to reduce the variable of having to walk from one place to another I will also say one thing. I'm taking away from this as I kind of really like having a having a cooler an ice chest like right next to the bed. That's pretty I I. It's winter so it's not as cold things but for the past ask like month I have been able to just simply wake up and as usual. I can for myself like a hot cup of tea. 'cause I boil water when in sprint but now I can just take a paper Bowl like off the off the nightstand off the stack take plastic spruyt or take a spoon. Take the box of cereal off the floor. Richard Ice Chest grabbed the almond milk and enjoy a lovely bowl. The cereal before I before I even like really really fully awake. That was pretty pretty nice but I'm sorry I'm getting. Is that for this. The terrible secret is that the pixel four has been missing for about a month and I knew Oh for fact that I hadn't lost it. There's between losing something and something simply being missing. I know it's in the house somewhere. I know that as soon as the next I'm I'm I I get to see when resumed cleaning the house. It will turn up very very quickly and sure enough of what I did some cleaning like three or four days. As ago I excavated a pile of a pile of laundry to almost The the the the primordial crust layer of the floor but between clean the floor layer and the laundry layer. There was the layer of my big gray gray laptop bag That I I thought was empty but I had the I had the phone a couple of things like in a pocket in this bag so it was. I actually saw so finally going to get around to doing my like the the final comprehensive like right up on the Pixel Four. I actually think it was kind of a good thing to have have a month off from using it and going back to it because I have had. I've had I know I know. I'm justifying just being Oscar Madison and but case it was it was. I'm just I'm just saying that. I always as one of the reasons why I always I. I never ever review a piece of hardware particularly a phone a couple of weeks after I got it. It's usually like at least a month so I have some time to get used to this. I'm not reacting reacting to this because it is new and different. I am not racking this because of the potential that I see in this feature. I'm racking this as someone who's been using it day to day to today and canal assess. How often do I use to work? And so if sharpened some opinions of the Pixel for I I think it's I think's thanks a terrific phone I really do. I think that anybody who is in a position where they need a new android phone. I think that should be on your short list of two or three Considering flagship well yeah I mean I think to me I think it's between Samsung. One plus an a pixel I egger and my choice among the three would probably be the pixel because I really really adore having Google as close to the metal as possible. Ah That's really what I really want However it got me it did get me concluding that if you don't necessarily absolutely need to replace replace your phone like right now I again. I've got Pixel One I've got a it's got a little Scott Bonus points it's like like I got an extra guy in the game because Google has given it android t giving it the next version of android and I didn't expect that it was going to okay gave me and what I'm finding is that I might decide to wait until the pixel five partly and one one of the big reasons. Why two big reasons why they both have to do with hardware motion sense? I love the idea. It's not worth the effort. I brought it up just me Nice. It's I think there's an amazing amount of potential there however it is right now just a couple of months after it's been released it's mostly potential unrealised. I want to see particularly what Google does Google CEO saying here are new. API's developers and new things. You developers can do motion sense starting with the Pixel for that. You already have in your pockets or if you look under your seats or whatever so that that's one factor. Another factor is that. I'm disappointed that support for face on lock is so spotty Even a couple of months later for kind of would I wouldn't say it's a deal breaker for me to have to enter a password every time I use paypal or my online banking APP but I do use those apps frequently enough and off off the pixel three at by the way I I don't want to deal with anything but the fingerprint at this point I really want to use the pixel for but it's it's it's too bad because the cameras a big leap from my pixel one so much speed a big limp. I like the styling so much of it is again a really nice big leap but you have that one practical thing. Where if I if I drop my pixel one like off a off a balcony and got the story and I really do have to buy another phone? I probably would bite the bullet and go ahead and get a pixel for however if I can tell myself that you can still so get along with your pixel one at least until you see if the next Samsung phone is so mind blowing that you're gonNA want to even go to that instead of a pixel or even to see if I feel as though I can wait for the Pixel five. I'm not so I'm not telling people to wait for the Pixel five however saying the pixel for A. Yeah I I feel like as good as I'm glad that Google is is putting both shoulders in idea of. Let's make really super great inexpensive or excuse me mid mid expensive phones and spent instead of just throwing our lot completely with flagship devices I breath and the value that they're delivering they delivered with three. A was just phenomenal. How I don't know if I might want to have it's for me? I don't buy phone every year every other year. It really is every three or four years like when I really see an excuse to really up my game and so I got. I've had like this is money like tape to tape underneath my desk for a few years now and spent the stack of bills and is getting has been getting thicker and thicker. So I feel as though I can spend nine hundred thousand dollars a phone when what if I fall in love with whatever that next phone is going to be but yeah we're I'm I'm taking a deep breath because you're just reminding me how much is left ahead for the air because it's only January's got again. Samsung Samsung Samsung has announced their unpacked events in San Francisco and just a few weeks. I was so excited because I already had bought tickets. It's for the for the Metropolitan Opera on February thirteenth and I was thinking if it relies on the eleventh and it's in New York City suddenly this becomes a business trip doesn't it which means that I can. I my personal budget. I can take this out of the out of the out of the business budget instead of the personal having fun budget. Yeah but I can't spend. I can't spend money to go to San Francisco for this and I'll be eight days away from giving birth so it's not. I am not having a baby at a Samsung keynote. That's not happening. I know it would like you're probably solidify why I know it really likes solidify my life as for what I chose to do with it but I just it's not having. I'm not doing not not again as as as we discussed last week we are. We are not living in sick and TV Sitcom land. Which means means that if there was ever any possibility of you having so-called wacky circumstances surrounding your birth? Any your child's birth. All of those circumstances were eminently preventable with such such simple things as perhaps eight days before I do I am not going to travel traveled to San Francisco and do a yeah covered a keynote. Exactly it's it's forty forty plus miles away from my hospital so you know Oh my God anyway okay and if you had any plans of making sure that like your child's face doesn't appear D Q matching. How many youtube videos you will be on? Hey this is. This is Chad of Jasdaq. I'm here I'm here in front of a woman giving birth right here smash that like bill. The Name Your Kids Sammy. Who Anyway I thought we'd name her blaze? Hey that's accurate name anyway so quick. GimMe GimMe Book Bush date. We are number three and number four. So we're actually climbing a little bit. Even though we're just holding on to just two slots I think that is a fine result. We can be very very proud of that as usual And so we're GONNA talk about. CAS after this message is we are.

FM come with US dear listener errors on a magic voyage we coming to an oasis city in the middle of a desert where vice goes to say dudes. You guys are off the hook and I wonder how Andy and I go completely two different directions gene wilder on this one. Okay oh I was. I was more going to Not even the colloquial version of Cincinnati. Sorry that more like the Martin Scorsese Casino version of Cincinnati. It's like this is what this is where gangsters go to like like wash their sins away and gain the able to do exactly what they're doing back in Chicago and Kansas City Casino.

Okay speaking of actually not speaking falling apart not a good segue. Let's pretended good sale. Rates freaking is to protect come on Don. Don't make me a bad guy here okay. Consumer Electronics show. And so we're so glad glad that we're here. We're in our offices in our homes instead of their in Las Vegas because it's it's it's a lie. It's a very very busy show. There's a lot to see. There's a lot of companies throwing announcements that you that you have to Parse and it's it's hard work so Kudos to everyone who is doing the work this week. Yes I'm I'm perfectly willing to say that I'm too old to be excited about that amount of energy with that. Few really great and important pieces of news scattered across such a wide area That's just my thing but they're with us. We are focused on Google stuff and so there were there were a couple of specific topics This was definitely the event where Google decided to make a big play for position. chrome OS and chromebook. Says I know you. Can you think of these as these cheap. Two hundred dollar notebooks that you that you buy in blister packs of one hundred for your kid's school but they're actually serious super powered wonderful productivity tools as well and we are very very important thing to show off during CAS when Microsoft which is still kind of the dominant system there. I mean we're seeing all usually see us was a showcase of PC stuff laptops and peripherals referrals and like all the all the hardware and so it's good to kind of have this other platform. Yeah it's good it to have a showing there. He rapidly right. The Big Central News for chromebooks is there. Google's partnership with Intel are there. Let's let's face. Is there anybody who builds any hardware around Intel components. It is on some level partnership with Intel Microsoft and Intel Pretty Much Co.. Oh design every plant every windows machine that exists S Not not an NFL way to have the sort of. It's not apple. They don't have the person who designs the CPU's and the person who designs the OS persons who designs the dialing software in adjoining cubicle. So you have to have that kind of tie But last year Intel decided to launch a kind of a branding certified or a certification program for windows hardware called Project Athena This was a way to You have. It's a special certification that a manufacturer has to qualify for the given the specs and the performance and the design of a windows notebook that allows them to say. Oh this is project Athena certified and that will indicate that when you're if it's an ultra book but it's not just a fan but crappy and useless and nope not powerful enough and no battery life enough notebook. It is a thin light notebook that is capable was pretty much any any decent windows notebook you can get a set of specs and goals coordinator Intel quote engineered for mobile performance us us and the targets festival the whole list of specifications that have to be met like you have to have instant action meaning biometric log in it has to be able to wake from sleep and less than a second performance is going to require an I five or seven Cebu money. You can't have a qualcomm. CPU and they're well. Oh Yeah so you need an eye for an eye seven. CPU At least he gives a gigabytes ram at least two hundred fifty six gigabyte SSD battery life has to be Sixteen hours or more for video playback and nine or more in typical use and you have to be able to charge From zero to four hours a battery in less less than thirty minutes fat with fast charging over. USCC on the form factor has to be right so basically if you see if you are if if you were to do a A search on Amazon or new egg. And you know that I've got more than three hundred dollars to spend on a windows notebook. Want something that's really really powerful and useful but nonetheless. The less has the form factor. Something really really slim. You can just search for Project Athena so What Google and Intel announces that the project of the program is being extended to chromebooks obviously high end chromebooks? And that's kind of explains a lot of things I I was kind of confounded that I you and I both have have a pixel books. I think it's a great low laptop. I've just really really really love. It and I was kind of disappointed that there. It hasn't been like a sequel to the Pixel Book. They have they have the pixelbook. Go which is the affordable not super powerful but powerful enough version okay. That's it's useful. That's not what I was hoping for the demographic exactly and they also have the the the pixel slates and almost immediately afterward. We're saying. Yeah Yeah we're kind of getting out of the slate business or for the pixel line and for super cheap please by our inventory and it did seem where but now really really seems like okay. So they knew they. They're they at some point. They switched their plan from. Let's build super-powerful high end chromebooks to prove how studly A chromebook can be too. Let's work with Intel to create a specification so so that if other companies so other companies will be encouraged to chase after the people who have five hundred to a thousand dollars or more to spend on a pixel book and therefore we can spend and more money getting sued on defending ourselves from litigation from various governments which will be quite a quite a relief from us? That's it's I hope that. I hope that that was their plan. I hope that the Google themselves haven't given up on it so we don't win we can't make any money off of the pixelbook so we're happy to have someone else do it. Oh no no no. I don't think it's at all I think they're just trying out there. Just trying to see what sticks you know. It's it is strange though I I everytime I try to answer the question for myself. Who spends a thousand dollars on a chromebook? I never confident of the answer that either get through research through talking to people who are expert analysts or through trying to work it out for myself because it seems as it seems seems as though once. You're in that kind of rarified. Air Territory and a thousand bucks is a big chunk of change. If you're if you're looking for a laptop and you're not looking him for an apple one. That thousand bucks will buy you more or less any windows Laptop in any configure. Any simple any any but the higher end configurations that you want with whatever bill quality like whatever form factor you like you can buy at least an I five with a good amount of memory and a good aside. SSD and you don't have to hook up donegal's for everything everything or use a magnetic keyboard and just hard for me to figure out who who is has has that kind of money in their pocket that is not either going to spend even more money to get something. Ultra stylish like power MAC book or despoil simply say a even from. Let's get a Samsung or a Dell or HP note book of the same pedigree but something that runs windows and is not going to have a problem Dealing with files and it's I don't know what the math is on that I admit it I will. I will say that whatever or has been showcased at CS has me really excited for what's happening to cross to the crumble platform But in terms of what's coming out from Google I still think that they're just because this has been kind of everybody's minds like well. If if in case spoiler alert if Samsung is doing this thing thing you know making these sexy looking chromebooks that look even nicer than the pixelbook. Then what does this mean coming out of Google and I don't know now. Let's remember that Google makes the the the bones of these things. It's not so much the the muscles and the again that word meat suit that goes around. That's what that's Google mostly concerned and I think and I again just as evidenced by the slate it's just figuring out new form factors figuring out what works going forward and The Pixel book go is Kinda this like mash of what they were doing for the younger crowd with education. And what they were doing for us high end users so you can like it's basically it's a really cute chromebook that you can put links on what's kind of the you know it's this powerful but I really like the idea of these laptops coming out even from other manufacturers because ultimately this is going to expand the platform and make it just make it a bigger thing I mean it already has been. HP Samsung have already been making chromebooks. Not Lake we're about to talk about tease are. We'll talk about it now. The Samsung Galaxy chromebook. I want it I want this you and I I want it the minute I saw it. Not just because it's a color okay. Yes to read. My grandmother has dinner where they're gonna be called fiesta red. And I'm glad my dinner. Where is fiesta? Wear Red and it's it's not just like read head. Is this beautiful sort of reddish orange ish like and and don't don't worry if you're stick in the mud you can still buy it and boring gray but you can still. Why would you get this really cool like Renaissance Orange in the right light? Maybe even a little bit pink at the edges. It's let's let's this is this is Rhonda down starts at so. I got getting this other way. It starts at one thousand bucks starts at nine hundred ninety nine dollars GonNa be available available. By the end of March or in the end of the first quarter But with a gigabytes of Ram one hundred twenty eight gigabytes of storage to start at supports sports up to sixteen gigabytes of Ram and a terabyte of SSD storage. So that's probably considerably more than nine hundred ninety nine you you can get it with an I five or I. Seven and this is the tenth generation released generation Intel processors. So it's not as though you're buying something that's three years old or necessarily necessarily dumbed down for Mobile It's very almost looks like this. They handed over there. I Google handed over their first draft of the Pixel book to to Samsung because it looks not unlike a pixelbook. It's has the three hundred sixty degree Screen Screen backlit keys. That's the same. Two little sticks tried that gum on the hinge that keeps keeps it all together. has no fans or it'll run silently. Let's hope that it doesn't think that it doesn't get too hot. Actually wanted one of the specs of Project Fina is that owned by the way. Ah I don't think a part of the SPEC is that you can't have a fan but one of the specs is that you will however you design this to handle heat you cannot have it cut its performance because it's getting too hot so none of that. Shenanigans fingerprint sensor from locking two USB ports a micro st includes An SPN like much like much like and we'll and it's also So obviously has a touchscreen and will also work with standard Welcome style stylists to. If you don't want something that Dachshund side of this beautiful little springy plea Audi hole the side of it and it's yeah I obviously I haven't I haven't touched it but I've I've I want I. I saw the pictures in seeking out video again every every every tech BRO named Chad. Who has your has who has a an instagram or youtube? I've watched your video of of the Samsung Galaxy grow just to see it from as many angles as I possibly can and it looks. H W T T hot. It's it's it feels like put it this way if I if I have given Somebody a thousand Rosen dollars for a notebook. This is what I'm expecting to take out of the box. Something that looks as good as this as well built as this case screen the it's For thirteen point three inch four K.. amyloid display now this. This is the one thing that kind of made me go. ooh This too bad a sixteen a sixteen sixteen to nine ratio screens. Well wide screen panel which that's the Samsung move because it got the guy wires exactly Klay. They're like hey we'll just put one of our. TV's which is fine as well. I mean I. It's over and turn into a media viewing or you could put some gaffer tape on like the left most sean six of it it just it just feels especially I. I really think that the rules should be that. If you've got a thirteen screen you have to have a one two three green third Ratio display because otherwise. It just looks weird. It looks like you want to hand it back and say hi Something something happened to the top inch and a half of the screen because I know that instinctively there should be like some more pixels up top there. Could you check like the truck truck delivered it in. Maybe it's like rattled around there somewhere. I really want those top pixels back because this is kind of freaking any there were a couple of other chromebooks that were announced to. Yeah that got highlighted does and Just just to show how important that Google thought that this was part of their masters. They I did have a blog post Alba Project Athena and highlighting these new chromebooks from From Samsung and a source and Lenovo But they both all three. We really went in different directions. ACIS has a new version of the chromebook flip. That isn't necessarily that much different from last year's version but it's significant fourteen screen tenth Jenner again tension ration- until CPU. All the two. And I seven longer battery life partial qualification for the certification so therefore power. But it's missing some of the finer details and This one also is gonNA be coming out. In March early March. They didn't announce the pricing. But but if they didn't they didn't decide to give it a whole new name and product number this route length of previous one is what the flipped for twenty something and something like that. That makes you think that they're probably number. Yup exactly whatever it is it's not going to the price is not going to deviate that much from the previous version. Which means would probably be around five hundred six hundred dollars that would be the version with cloth seats and the factory Stereo? If you want the I seven seven if you want the extra as Steve More than that but still very very solid machine priced at roughly what I would like to spend for a non-basic nine basic chromebook. I I really do think the sweet spot for chromebook is five to six hundred bucks because At five to six hundred bucks the advantages of chrome os over over the massive overhead and an finicky. -Ness of windows. That's really where you can't. You can't build a windows notebook for five five or six hundred dollars without making it without having to sacrifice performance and comforts whereas you can make a really great chromebook doc probably running the same intel process running on. I five that you would need have seven hundred windows notebook together level of performance And it looks perfectly another the three hundred sixty degree screen. So you get that kind of Mojo Lenovo went into a completely different completely different direction but what good because Sir advantage of chromebooks that they can be cheap so they had two different designs the idea pads line they have the yes. Sorry I jumped ahead there. I just really wanted to say duet the Antea ped- to see if we did this studio studio together. We probably have to say that we're together like in harmony. Oh yeah good point it brings to do what a lot of tune. I'm sure Jim can fix that. We're we're we're good regret so this really does seem like a more affordable version of the pixel slate Limit for I tell you the price Let me tell you. It's got got a template one inch display with one only one USB port for charging and for data and accessories magnetic keyboard cover by. That's including shooting in tutoring the price at other magnetic keyboard stand that's also included in there. It's going to be compatible with most stylists although it does not come with one they. CPU is the. I'm going to give you time to open a new browser tab because I'm not sure a lot of people come in saying I WANNA make sure that this is powerful enough to handle everything. I'm going to throw at it because I'm gonNA use this as a real laptop. Give me nothing less than mediatek. heliotrope e Sixty T.. CPU It's fine. I'm sure it's fine but I think you re you understand that you're probably not going to be running light remarkable on this twenty eighteen chip. Yeah it's fine it's fine I'm in you can run Light Ra- mobile I mean if I can if I can run light room mobile on the Pixel Book just find just kidding. That's an Intel Da. Hello the Dow flow. That's an Intel based configuration you're getting four gigabytes Aram which is on the left side. I think one hundred twenty eight gigabytes of storage which is fine not great but find. They're also promising. Chrome OS chromos updates through two thousand twenty eight which is very wow now and so wait for two hundred and seventy nine dollars. That's coming out in May okay. That's when you start to say okay. I don't mind that there's there's not as much application Ram. I don't mind that it's not even using Intel's Phony Bologna earn call. This core is something even though we used to to call it something called a seller on because we didn't want to offend the engineers who were working on the core processor line That's and that's when you get down to. This is a useful given that given that can be magnetically detached from From its keyboard and be used as just a regular slate. That's it's not bad at all I will let let's see if can I hold it from like one half of the screen and the rest of it will simply bend from gravity. I don't know is that. Is it water soluble. I'm hoping not. That's the price where sacrifices prices must be made but it's Lenovo and they don't make crummy stuff. I have a couple of different Lenovo Laptop. Some of them are actually pretty cheap. LAPTOPS OPS and both pretty darn good. So that's pretty good news on the more conventional side they have the idea pad flex five. Which again I'm having thing so many flashbacks to so many hip hop albums from like early eighties? It's like grandmaster flash affects five. Don't okay so this is more of a conventional convertible laptop with hinge. You can get up to an Intel. I five and once again. Latest generation processor wonderful of thirty two or sixty four gigs of EMC STORAGE NOT TCI SD but basically a flash drive. We'd like to see baron that but you can get one hundred twenty eight Gig. SSD Wi fi six. which is the latest version of Wifi backlit keyboard keyboard also spill resistant and that one starts at three hundred fifty nine bucks which is again what I feel. Those is the mid re a good price for cheap windows machine. Shane and a good price for a mid range chromebook. So I. I want to see We they didn't release the obviously the entire like builder order order a list of public cost of builds. This one out the way you'd like it but if if the base price is three and fifty nine with three for thirty two gigabytes of not really good S- quality storage I'm wondering if you budgeted five to six hundred dollars if you kind of it kind of put it into chromebook flip territory. Y could you get it out because if you start with a list generation until I five you've got enough potential horsepower so long as you're backing it up with Ram and storage and it might be more comfortable to use than a NASA's even though they th these are pretty well built in. That's a big fourteen in screen but it's I am. I'm glad to see the goodwill at least was putting chromebooks front and center and the it's having they're having great success us with chromebooks and education but the risk there is that it gets pigeonholed as a computer. Fear Kids fisher-price lined up hand crank writer when it's to me using the the pixelbook. It really is for what I need a little slim lightweight. Laptop the top four. It's better than the IPAD pro that I used to love used every day and loved because it really is the because it does introduce some pain in the butt things about because it is chrome. Os Windows or Mac but what you get in replacement for that is that the damn thing just keeps working. I've never had a situation in which I open up the LID and it doesn't work or stops working or it freezes up there have been times where it's slowed down a great deal because I had like two gigabytes of storage I left and I had like a kajillions tabs open crumbs. That's on me. I'M NOT GONNA blame anybody but beyond that but it really does. It really does point out that the chrome books books have a purpose beyond just simply being an alternative to windows and the IPAD so long as they can make it useful I think as as long as they can deliver that kind of kick butt advantage at five hundred dollars over pretty much anything else going. I'm really keen to get my hands on these and check them out. I'm not I'm not sure about the about the idea pad duet not sure but we'll find out But I'M GONNA but I'm glad that Google is is trying to make that point that this is not just for kids. This whole new platform does not the less than operating system. This is the alternative operating system. And maybe if you give one of these notebooks a try outside of the improvements you'll never notice the difference that no we still have a live. CAS stuff to the SCUSI.

The problem is that they spent so much for that like Google Assistant Pee. Wee's playhouse sort of X. Building off building that they've been setting up at the at sea that now it's a sunk cost. It's like they can't they they. They can't afford to write it off now so they have slides into to a ballpit by the way. Yeah so if you ever wanted to share a ballpit with thousands of thousands of people from outside I so you're gonna go see like a ball pit like chucky cheese. You worry about P Here you're gonNA worry about like analyst Lice endless the students and journalists cooties see. That's let me what we have to cover. We have to remind ourselves and everybody else in this. This is not like like a for a for a festival to which everybody is invited. This is press only industry only analysts. Only so oh. Google built this knowing that they're expecting grown adults who are here with responsibilities to want to go down a wacky slide landed a ballpit an in an environment where they're pretty much certain to be photographed or videoed by somebody doctor sholls into but you know that's what makes the. Es Fun Ish rush was stay three and you're so tired you don't even know who you are where you are anymore. Something genetic in your brain says a slad. I remember when I was. I felt so happy and free live when I was a little child. I wasn't so burden says today with all these felts cat gentlemen combs did I have okay. So they're putting highlights on the Google assistant again and announcing via blog posts and of course so kinds of other demos Some cool new feature is something which you might wonder why wait. We didn't have scheduled actions before now. schedule actions were Partly to flex exelon the tighter. Smart home degration that The Google assistant has a new now have timed actions can have certain things happened. You can say please please have the lights turn on today at five thirty or please turn off the turn off the heater tonight at four places manually doing so in the routines tab which is much just so much more convenient in every in every example they gave was all about What was all about home home automation. I wonder if I hope it's a little bit more flexible than that. Because I could. Sort of I could I could sort of. I can sort of get it into sort of make use of having the assistant. Please find at in two hours. Tell me how much which time it will take to commute to this distance and then tell me what that business is going to be. Yes you know and I'm just I'm just coming up with an an example out of my Just off the top of my head but I hope it's not just you know those things you've been doing for a very very long time with the Hugh App on your phone and you've probably really already set up all the routines that you are ever going to set up between the lights and the appliances and stuff like that. Well now. We're giving you a different way to do that and potentially surely clobber the existing schedules that you've already come to know and rely upon but not know sour grapes. I'm glad they're doing This one is kind of cool household notes serve looks like yellow sticky notes for smart displays. You can use the hey guillermo command like hey camera leave a note. That says I'm I know that I said that was going out for cigarettes. But I'm actually leaving. You're never coming back because I know that there's a bigger broader word world and continue on next note and that will be displayed on your smart display and people will not necessarily not have to sign in or like it'll just be there for people to see that's pretty cool A sort of a speed dial dial feature for household contacts sounds like being able to have like a kind of the old fashioned like ten slot speed. Dial off on your on the kitchen phone you can define that okay called the pizza place. And you don't have to say call Domino's. Tom Knows Pizza on one to eight myself boulevard nearby. So it's so that that's that's handy now this was Kinda subtle but this could be one of the neatest things that they are introducing. Es it's just simple as simple as natural reading of long form content. And I'll hear a quote the The blog post here. This experience is built on new voice. Data sets to create more expressive and more natural sounding voices. So it's it's easier to listen to F- for a longer period of time. So the idea is that there is a system that is sophisticated enough to speak a sentence. And tell you what the weather is or the answer to a question. But when when you've got a webpage or something if you're or something that you want to listen to while you're you're driving and you have to have this this voice speak two thousand words. You will ease. It has a rhythm to it if it has a a weakness S.. You're going to find it every by the time you get to paragraph number eight you are going to know that. Oh God it it. Does that lilt at the end of every third sentence and Oh my God. It's one of these people who who inflicts the end of every sentence like this and yep so it sounds like one of those things that sounds like a simple thing but it's only simple. La Seems simple before you take the existing voice model and then try to read five thousand words with it and then say oh he got improve this so I was. There's also there's also a assistant command. Hey Bureau read this page. When you're looking at a webpage and it's also sophisticated enough that obviously obviously it's not going to say and you're not goes colossal waste of bandwidth? Then you podcasts. Contact like me as you know. Please just maybe you could like. Have your tension grab by the huge block of two thousand word. Texts that inside this thing. So that's gotta be were also work with in conjunction with translation. So you can have it. Please speak I know. This is an English but at pleased to translate this into Canadian English or perhaps an even more foreign language supporting now. This is weird. Got The one source says forty two languages riches and other ones says twenty nine. So let's just say dozens of language is It's likely that yours is included. They're they're era also a little bit promise for the future quoting again here. We're also looking to include auto scrolling text highlighting capabilities that help users read the text as it's being read read aloud so as it's do as reading a certain word it will highlight the word that's reading so that that if you're learning to read or learn to read a certain language or even learning to speak a certain language like you've told it to please translate this French into English or Russian into English as it saying saying the English is highlighting the Russian text that could be quietly wonderful How that works They're also saying that now. This is something that they rolled out last year. You're used to that. They have interpreter mode the ability to have sort of like turn by turn translation Abusing the Gula System as translator. Well they've been integrating this into out reaching into various concierge based services and public services Mrs so now More hotel check in desks and more airports and more libraries and more human services departments will have Google nest Excuse me a nest home device on the table and so so and with with instructions in various languages that could handle the I'm the go to the hotel. And you are in the hotel Sir I will not buy this record. It is scratched. And that's Ah we talked to. I talked earlier about how a lot of stuff is being shown off because the demos well this but this really is something that demos really really well. They did of course have a video on their youtube channel about it and I'm hoping that's not a canned demo. I'm guessing. It doesn't have to be a canned demo but would just the ability to have again. It's turn by turn. Can't Trent. Not the Babel Fish. It can't translate what I'm saying as fast as I'm saying while I'm saying it it's like hi. Can you help me with a car reservation. Yes I will need the car at eight. PM that's fine. I couldn't do seven PM. If that's all you have. That's you know. Turn Against Ninety Day fiance. Lots of marriages are built on Google. Translate Great I could see I could see using this with The the woman who helps meekly my house She's primarily a Spanish Spanish speaker and even though I understand Spanish pretty well and I have a pretty basic grasp of it sometimes Sometimes they don't always I understand and I'd like you know wouldn't it be great to just have like we wait. Hold on a second. Let me turn this on and then we can just like talk that way in the kitchen like when we're talking about out something a little more technical that I'm not like used to hearing so I don't really know how to you know you're about to mix bleach and ammonia. If you do that we will both die. That's her saying it to me by the just by the way 'cause I hired her because she's amazing she can get anything anything anything and she only uses like whatever Greek cleaning stuff but yes so. That's what I'm doing I mean do it. It's it's I think part of that is just sort of like lay up the shot for When the new Pixel Buds? Come out. 'cause that was one of the features that they were sort of the beginning of twenty eighteen that this was going to happen so it's like that twenty eighteen I was listening to Google assistant enabled headphones. That was doing but we're doing this sort of thing like it's just oh it does it does. It does work on the phone. I'm really really. It really would be A. This is what the future was supposed to be like sort of moment where I'm putting in the discreet. earpiece is that also has has a microphone and of course a little speaker and it animal here what the foreign language persons speaking person is saying and whispered into into my ear in my own language and then when I I I suppose there's no way around I'd have to say it in English but in the repeat back to me phonetically I will not buy this record. It is scratched. I will not buy this tape deck. That is vintage which just so that I can recreate speaking. Sorry Andy I called you out. There have sorry I am successful and and forward thinking I can look forward to the future. I am not so afraid of the unknown that that I must take solace in the familiarity of an archaic past. Give me a lot too hard. You download that APP for your phone that plays digital audio but puts a picture of a realistic cassette spinning. Well it plays. I decided that it's okay for me to do that. But yeah and of course as we alluded to earlier they had had to make sure that it's not really part of the whole Feature set that they're saying but continuing our commitment to privacy and losers. We're saying continuing nut beginning our commitment. I'm sorry I'm sorry. I wasn't supposed to say that continuing our commitment to privacy. The Google system is built to keep your information mation private safe and secure for instance. The assistant is designed to wait in standby mode until it is activated and when in standby mode. The Assistant Won't send what you are saying to Google or anybody else etc etc so walking through and there's new Google assistant commands. How do you keep if you ask? How do you keep information? Private will say we're so glad you asked now. Don't believe don't believe what that apple personal assistant will tell you. We're going to tell you the truth about Tim. Apple is it goats with trump. It really got hung him out to dry it doesn't you. Didn't you. Never see our CEO getting in trouble for any ethical lapse awake no sorry Ivan specifically told told not to talk about that but so it really does seem as though every single thing they do has to be filtered through. Make sure for you if you've got the microphone and there's still some time left on our clock we can sleep slip in a we really do care but no we don't sell your personal information. I don't care what your aunt kept telling you or what you're what your seventeen year. Old Nephew keeps that. We don't sell your information. We just sell ads based on what we know of you that we keep secret because I I mean we got. We spent a lot of money man figuring all this stuff out. We think that we're going to give away the stuff. No Man we. We are way too Venal to actually did not want to maximize profits in our in our totally legal but should not be Lille surveillance of you again. Perhaps I should not have put that in the press. Release I forgot that I've forgotten released. This google docs with edits visible. When I was supposed to make sure that turned that off before I hit the button? Oh Well Hey hey commits twenty twenty. We'll be doing okay so before we were quick little break that we need to take before we move onto our last bit but I do WanNa bring up just something that happened with the assistant last night which was again I mentioned. I've had insomnia. Unfortunately really my poor husband when he works from home the next day usually he'll stay up with me which is like oops but last night. He decided decided we were having this. Really deep discussion about bath bombs because yeah we were we were and it was like one thirty in the morning and the thing I absolutely do not like is in is asking Google anything after hours the way I call it like I don't have do not disturb or whatever I don't have I don't have that in our room because you never know if I'm like waking up in the middle of the night and you know immediately need to turn all the lights or something like I want to be able to do that kind of thing anyway And also because I have a smart lock the door whatever anyway And he decided to ask a question Russian to Google last night so he incited it. It did the whole loading thing. It was bad to answer him immediately. I replied not outdoor. Listen to him. Don't answer him right. Now is not the time to answer questions to which the assistant took a pause and then replied. I don't WanNa get in the middle title of this right now. That was like Smart Assistant. Now that's smart anyway. I just wanted to share that. But that's because that's never happened before where I've been like not no don't answer. I said don't answer him. This is not the time and just like I don't want to get in the middle of this right now anyway which makes me think. What has the assistant anyway? We will be back back after this episode of material is brought to you by Booz Allen modernizing for the future challenge especially for large organizations.

We'd like to think Booz Allen for their support of the show well before we go when it wouldn't the Google oriented podcast. We'd have to have something to say about a Faux Pas and something accountable on before you do the Faux Opa you label this Act Culture Club so I ask I have to to. You really want to hurt me. We will tumble for you. Dear listeners. CLA- okay just now Georgia's GonNa see all that used to be. That was like the act one slot until I moved it down and I decided that the template that used to write these things. It seems that they'll act. One one is always we always when we talk about. And here's some bad news about coach a Google corporate culture so we're just going to create this new segment called the Google Culture Club to see how well Google is getting along with. Its employees the government and the world Well assumed Upper Chai this is. Why if you're the CEO of really impressive and important and powerful company? You gotta be careful about everything everything you say he. I'm sure now especially with what we're following so he's He tweeted Dev about the the wildfires in Australia early which we talked about the last week and fortunately situations not getting a terribly bit still by huge problem but So we see tweeted devastating waiting to see the catastrophic bushfires in Australia. We've been working with emergency services to provide SOS alerts and Info on our crisis. Map and at Google. Org and Google irs are donating to support relief efforts and included a link to the crisis map of of Australia which is an example. Some of the cool things that Google APPs can do with with their data So with points to a interactive map of the Sea of fire situations in Australia. You Click on it and you get It's a map of Australia. We're just all these markers all the way down the coast and up the coast About not the fires and Queensland Emergency Warnings Fires that are going on fires that are safe. Tasmania information broken down by by area and is a good a demonstration of some of the use that that will can put to a state. And little if you're a little bit cynical you could say wouldn't it be nice if you just said that. Hey we're donating money and hey we our hearts go out without actually promoting any of your. I'll I'll that's a little bit cynical. That's fine but unfortunately Employees are following his account. And Sam Kern. Who is a Google Earth Responded saying quote. Yes the Australia Australia. Bushfires are devastating on that note. When is Google going to commit to the climate plan requested by twenty three hundred or more of its workers? There's and here. He linked to a medium post post back counts called. Google workers for action on climate and here was We're kind of familiar familiar with These medium posts which are Powerful mechanism that are being used by Google. Employees sometimes anonymously to get their message out. This is one was created on November fourth of last year. It's called Google worker for Action on climate from the open letter on climate action at Google will Assigned by two thousand three hundred and two Google Earth and apparently directed at alphabet. CFO Ruth Pratt Mixed four demands zero emissions is by twenty thirty zero contracts were able or accelerate the extraction of fossil fuels zero funding for climate denying or delaying think tanks lobbyists and politicians auditions. That seems like it should be obvious one and zero collaboration with entities enabling. The incarceration surveillance displacement or oppression shen of refugees or or frontline communities and no new. I don't believe that there was a response to this on behalf of Sundar Pichai. So so it's as I've been saying as I've said about Tim Cook on occasion. It's like this is part of your job as CEO. nope sometimes you quite rightly have to spend some time in the dunking booth and this was again. Didn't do anything mean by tweeting this out. But when you point out that A bunch of people are concerned about Google doing something seriously positive for about the about climate As opposed to something that's kind of symbolic they look are nifty data that we've been collecting. Perhaps you could at least respond to this again. He has to sit in the dunking booth for that. But yeah it's like. He probably probably tweeted out thinking while I really really really feel terrible situation. This is and maybe we can hope people with this with this visualization position. We can help. People don't understand exactly how and he didn't expect crap. Yeah sorry I mean not sorry. Sorry not sorry. It's it's just a you can you can you. Can you can agree with the idea that that Sam Curran was correct. Point this out while also feeling a measure of sympathy for Sundar Pichai. That like really just all. I just gave up. I gave some flowers to my dear mother on her eightieth birthday. And and now I gotta deal with. Hey you know where those flowers came from man like Meh workers got paid like this. My mom looks like roses. Okay sorry I mean it is a privilege to be able to censor yourself when when you don't WanNa bring that sort of vibe to a conversation and I'm saying this personal now just because of where we are in twenty twenty what what has been happening lately. How I've you know? Come to realize the the realities of the world and how things are done but you know in relation to Google on this. I the reason that we bring the stuff up is because it would just be really great to see. Google have a little bit of awareness beyond what they weren't us that corporations usually have in just kind of have them be like a rate. The stuff is happening behind the scenes and people are really happy with us about it You know it's just like it would be if be good form at the same time. Yeah anyway you know what good for the Google irs at Google who are doing the work of Collins stuff out when they see it because it is a lot harder for for people I mean you know good for good for people for using their privilege village. Forget that's what I'm going to say. Exactly on. Both sides of the equation is exactly. It's all giving a bunch of money away and and You Know Google irs like talking speaking internally like hey who about that thing that you didn't sign which should really help but you know it's all a two hundred twenty. Yeah I know there's we're you feel like our podcast is going towards year so I'm just like no but you know what this is keeps life interesting and and this is my favorite stuff to find on twitter and send to Andy because you'll be like good fine and I'm just like thanks Sandy. I went into the depth of twitter. For this what uh-huh it was dark. It was a time and place and I really had to like hold onto my one little flashlight. But you know we got there uh-huh and will link to all this stuff in the show notes if you want to follow along and like actually see what it is that we're talking about of course. Yes yes exactly. We're again we're like reading rainbow it's like and here's your public library and read more about this. So yes okay. Did I ever tell oh you. Here's what we're GONNA end the podcast today. Did I ever tell you if my gosh. I'm having total pregnancy brain that now I can't remember his name came from Reading Rainbow. He Yeah thank you. He pregnancy brain by the way is a real thing like I just forget things that I've always known. He snubbed me at comic con one year. And I've never forgiven him for it and so I have like a very personal vendetta against Lavar Burton for this reason. No problem putting all the record on on behalf of most most of our listeners. At this moment can you elaborate. On what the snubbing what form it took yes So in in Y'all might might be like really flow. You're making a big deal out of this year even know See you know the actress from Star Trek with like the dark curly hair. Yes yes so. She was with Lavar Burton and they were like just outside Some cafe in San Diego were there for comic con and I just wanted to say hello to him because this is when he was really popular on twitter her when he was like kind of one of the verified that would like secretly like people. Stop and you'd be like Oh my liver and he just I said to him I don't I don't even remember exactly what I said but I just remember him being like no no no not not here to talk not here to like engage with people and like I respect that from you know from I do respect the fact that like you're not you don't always have to be on and just because you're at comic con doesn't mean that people should be allowed to flood you because they were getting flooded it was just like the nerds also smell them and then just like turn their heads in and it's exactly you know like if you know the beetle who were on the quarter at their enduring their heyday and so I get it I totally get it but the the actress actress she was much more just kind about And she was like no no. I'm so sorry runaway. To another event it was just like I would have appreciate it like you know the carrot approach versus the stick approach. That's all I'm trying to say so. And because of that I have a have a snobbery abry flora Varberg versus Mark Hamill. Who's tweeted at me? Several Times in response to tweets that. I've Tweeden him you know. Are we talking talking. He's he's tweeted me a couple of times in the past couple of years not out of nowhere because I've because I've included him I've tagged act him but because I'm verified. I think it makes them more inclined to be like. Oh who is this person sane. So I try to use that to my advantage checkmark. That's how I use it to my advantage. This cat like Bar Cam talked to me. And so I I have not achieved that I've I- somewhere in in on my dropbox. There is a enlarged screen. Grab of just the twitter interface. Saying mark. Hamill liked her. Tweet I have. I have a couple of those. And it's like I keep flip-flopping between there's no way that this is a silly thing to pronounce an unframed is going to have on my wall. The question is is it as it should be more silly to take it to that one really great great framing shop to have a custom frame and acid free everything made for one hundred and fifty dollars or is it more silly because that means that. Hey if you see this this on the wall either a you're gonNA think he's being sarcastic he's being self deprecating by saying look how overblown especially with that little art light. That's on top of it when actually no it's because it really is or oh isn't that isn't that Kinda cute that he really that he that that really did like delight him that Mark Hamill like liked something thing that in an abstract way at least light something that he that indie created this or is it more like you went to cvs and you bought like a ten dollar frame and it's like do either either like don't don't try to get a little bit wet either your dive in gotta stay dry but none of this. I'm going to wait and up to my unease. It's right leaning into it if you're going to be that excited just got on it and and I'm perfectly happy with if if someone points to that and a floating question. Mark appears over their head saying that I try to one of the one of my metrics for 'em I living a proper are in good life. Is that if ten-year-old me gotta like gotTa look into who I am and what I do. What kind of eventers I I've had? Would they be pleased. Leased to be the past that that I that I'm going to that I have marked out this spot that they're going to be in in the next thirty or thirty or forty years and you know what the ten year old version of myself is ecstatic. And not probably because ten-year-old doesn't understand like okay when I say that Mark Mark Hamill saw something that I wrote and indicated approval that actually means a lot less in context. And I'm glad you're glut and and then seventy year old me is like Oh let the boy have his via be excited about 'cause why why. Why middle-aged Andy don't be the screen door on ten-year-old? Andy submarine exactly. You're so wise seven-year-old Andy thank you you always put things in proper perspective diff- and on that note. Everyone's you're listening by how now other other than childbirth What do you got for the future that you would actually like people to be able to check in on? Just go check out flow feed Florence DOT COM. I've been updating it with my latest work still updating this week and hoping to get out still hoping to get out a couple of roads honestly tact before I go on a self imposed maternity leave and you can see. I'm going to be on Boston. Awesome public radio again on Monday. It's usually about every week. I'm discombobulated because I've been on Mondays for the past few weeks instead of Friday my usual which means that my brain is pro. My brain at this point has been trained that if I'm at the if I'm in a WGN studio blathering about tech for twenty minutes or half hour.

Wriggling out of a recession
"This is ABC podcast Prime Minister. Welcome to the program. Thank you for your time. Thank sleepy east the combination of rhinovirus and the bushfires going to drive a straight into a recession. Well I'm not getting ahead of these issues What we have done on the Koran Avars Spike is very much on the health challenge. The government doesn't want to answer it. But that's the question everyone's asking I'm Stephen Stockwell and I'm Angela and today on the signal. Australia's desperate efforts to wriggle out of a recession okay. So we're back in that weird spot in the news cycle where everyone is talking about a recession but no one is outright predicting one right and have we find ourselves here. We call in the. Abc's business editor Brenda before. Corona virus was a word that everybody knew only too well. These trillion economy wasn't in perfect shape by any stretch of the imagination. Can YOU DESCRIBE FRISK? How things would traveling prior to this horror Osama. Look you've just got the numbers out for the of last year. So the what's known? As the December quarter three months up to the end of the the December quarter. We saw zero point five percent growth Australia in the quarter. That we're talking about today has performed well. Compared to other countries look a lot better than a lot of people expected. Mom some were expecting absolutely no growth whatsoever and even maybe a contraction but the problem. We've had in the economy really quite some time. Now that I'm domestic Wa- retail spending has been bad household. Spending has been bad. All the growth has come from exports much better than expected on all processes and Government spending so the household sector's been pretty pretty poll and the reason for that is. You've got too much household level. Everybody's off to the odds with massive mortgages and why does not been growing so spending it? And if you're doing. I kind of helped check on the economy. So broad terms state would have been in at that point ended last year. We were okay but Karnal limping along and and not in the foot. Not Getting any better. Everyone was pointing to a slowdown this year. And look for some time now. The Reserve Bank is pointing out. You know we're we're not in great shape and if there's something that just comes out of the blue we could end up in serious trouble and cut to December January where we have not only unprecedented bush fires and the economic hit the came with that but then what is on the verge of becoming a pandemic in the form of Corona virus. Is that exactly the worst nightmare that the was imagining. I think so. Yeah I mean the Bush has bad enough because you think back. We've had Bush flaws proud of this but they've never baynes on such a massive scale across the country and you know the destroyed so much infrastructure regional housing You had the drought as well compounding the problems with the economy which was really going to affect export earnings from from the rural sector. So that was really bad. Everyone's thinking wow. This is going to really possibly even tapes into recession and then in the background. You've got this thing happening in China this. We'd virus that pops up out of the middle of nowhere. Chinese health authorities are still working to identify the virus behind a new mooney outbreak. In the central city of one according to authorities the number of cases has increased to forty four with eleven of them in serious condition and got a lot of particularly the financial markets. Just didn't bother with it at all as Blewett rod off as some kind of about an event and who really cares until about a week ago corona virus fears send global share markets into meltdown today with billions of dollars wiped from the ASX at the close of trade today more than two hundred and thirty two billion dollars value been wiped away. That's around ten percent. It's been the biggest drop in a single wake for the Australian market since the Paik of the financial crisis. Look at that right there. Wall Street ending one of the worst weeks of trading since the financial crisis in two thousand eight what has grown virus done to the global economy so far paints a broad picture. Look it's created what's known as a supply shock and is to conduct sharks that you can have in economic terms. One is demand a demand shock the other supply and demand shocks at pretty easy to well not easy but the relatively easy to fix them than the other. Because what you do is you throw money at it. So you know if you and I don't have enough money to spend because the economy's slowing down over this too much. Whatever the Reserve Bank account interest rates the government can give you cash and then you gown spanned an. It'll kind of works out but supply shock. Is something similar to what happened You know back in the seventies with the oil shocks when oil supplies cut off in this case it was China which is so important to producing components for pretty much everything you buy from mobile phones to building materials. They've got some kind of input into that and so when they shut down all of the stuff that you would normally go on by is suddenly missing from the shelves. So you know at paypal can give you more money. But that doesn't mean you're going to spend it because there's nothing to buy. The world's factory is having a sick day. Basically yeah absolutely and is a net seek Diana. It's quite a great parallel between the economic health. From this virus because as the virus spread around China the economic virus spread around the rest of the will to Europe to the states to hear you. Thank that the whole world has been affected because the whole world is exposed to China economically. These that especially true for Australia though. Oh yeah absolutely. We are. Probably the country most connected to China. Most of our exports go to China in terms of raw materials. You talking on or call gas all sorts of things and then you'd look you can also consider. The tourism is an expert because it creates cash for us the education sector. You know these are really important components of our economy and we are in terms of economic development On that scale where one of the least developed countries in the world because we were so connected to one country only with so dependent on one country. You know you're looking at sort of small African nations which normally just one. Niger trading partner. Well let's waste of sitting in the equation. Sorry that old saying among economists that if China sneezes catches a cold is extremely relevant right now if in slightly poor taste shit so young. It's a little little real and like humor saying we don't have the official figures for the period since the FIS and virus really kicked in the downtown is visible and if you pretty big sectors yea literally visible empty university halls empty shelves empty hotels and the projections are starting to reflect that. Lou Treasury did some early Calculations came up with the basically saying that the bush fires and the early bit of the correct corona virus would take about north point two percent off our GDP growth the OECD. Came out the other day though and said up to about north point five percent. So you know you combine that inside you take no point of. We've just not wrecked up a note point five percent. Gyn So you're in two zero territory just based on the the modeling that we already have from Treasury and from the always day doesn't look like we're headed for a recession here. You'd probably say yes. Look that's why the FBI cut writes this week. The being adamant for quite some time that The there wouldn't be doing any anything. Radical and the economy was improving that had always rosy full costs about wages growth about all sorts of things. But I think there's been a deep seated fear that something like this would blow up and They've they've acted very quickly. You also saying that the US has cut writes. They've done a two in one. Go and that is really taken. Everybody surprise because they didn't even wait for the next meeting. I just came straight out of the Blue Australia. First off the mark here and look. We're going to Canada and probably New Zealand. Follow and Europe are already negative territory. So there's not much room for them to do much. Odds are we heading for a recession and the government has started hinting at economic stimulus measures to avoid it the very least softened the blow when we be announcing the details of that package. Where will it be targeted. We'll be answering no soon lay and we'll be enhancing the tag on at that time and he's saying before the. May Federal Budget because one assumes there's a degree of agency here yes it is okay so what everybody's it's happening soon but so far we don't know what shape it's really gonNA take right although it's a pretty safe bet that it's not going to look anything like the stimulus measures from the rudd government in two thousand and eight when the majority of. Australians had a big chunk of money land in their accounts so back then it was pretty clear that this was going to be a global shock and that people could possibly run out of money and what we needed was to boost demand. So let's hand money out to everybody. Who's on the you know? Got a registered at the I. T. O. And give everybody a thousand bucks. Cowan spend some of it that should keep the economy taking either. They've pretty much ruled out. Broad scale a lodge scalp a splashing cash around. They've said that that didn't work last and actually did work was one of the most successful things. So that's the new term helicopter money this time. It's it's different. It's a supply shock and so this is way of firms not going to be able to get enough things to put on their shelves to manufacture what they need to manufacture and so they're going to run into trouble with servicing ditz. You say what could happen here. Is If there's nothing to buy and if firms go to the wall thou not laying off workers and if work is start getting the sack and Co pay the bills mortgages and everything else that flows through. That's when you start to get a a really deep seated recession and so you need to start from the point of view of okay. What do we have to do to ensure the people get the sack rock? Perhaps it is. We offer some kind of loan facility to two companies that have just been affected by this farce ordinarily would be reasonably well off and be able to do okay and to give them some kind of debt holiday until this. Old Liza. I'm guessing about the deadline facility. That's something that ought. Explorer was in their shoes. But that's one way of doing it but yeah. I think they're going to go down. An Industry Pecan path and now we'll look at specific sectors. Not will be the hand out money to hotel operators or tourism companies or whatever. They're going to be very targeted. They still seem to think that the surplus is something that needs to be defended against all odds okay. So that's the plan. Well maybe that's the plan. No one actually knows what the plan is yet. And there's no guarantee it would work to keep straight out of a recession anyway so if we are headed into a recession. What exactly does that mean for people? How's IT GONNA affect their day to day lives? Well it's a unemployment really and our unemployment rate is has been climbing a little And it's well above what the Reserve Bank would like to see. The Reserve Bank wants rant four and a half percent. We've now got it at five and a half percent. So it's a long way off target but even worse is the underemployment employment. So you've got underemployment roundabout eight percents and this is where people they're working but they're not working enough. They not waking enough to pay the bills or to get where they want to be other sectors. And I guess demographics that are especially vulnerable here. Look you know. We've seen massive changes in the economy. Over the past thirty years where You know factory and manufacturing has declined as as as an important part of the economy is still important. But it's not as important as it was you had will pay jobs in that sector that have been lost to automation and the the growth in employment has been in the service industries. So you've got a lot of people now working in in tourism and hospitality and all these kind of the done. The jobs don't pay particularly will so they just getting by on a lot of them casual workers so the casualization of the workforce as also been a real problem and I are going to be the first recession because they casual workers? They're easy to lay off? That's young people. Young people pre predominantly young people. Yeah how long until we start seeing those impacts I think in the tourism industry pretty pretty quickly. You know The hotel industry is is really hurting at the moment. And there's a strong possibility that we could see some hotel. Chains are the pull out all smaller ones go onto. Is there anything at all that people can do to insulate themselves here? I don't know what could you do if you if you don't have any money in the bank and there was some studies done last year which suggested that Most households only had would struggle to get three thousand dollars if they needed in an emergency funding for something and said that gives you an idea. Just how slim the margins everyone are operating on you know I mean. No one's got money in the bank because they've got these huge mortgages and if they haven't got a huge mortgages paying big rents you know with very little in common no wage growth. We were very lucky in two thousand eighteen and it was because of our ties to China. That's why we're insulated. It feels like as lucky as we were that time. That's exactly how unlucky we are these time around because we were so closely tied. They pulled us out they. They saved global capitalism Communist nations club captains from itself. But it's a toss China is probably going to wipe down this time rather than let us sell through. That's it for the signal today.
