A highlight from The Ministry of Evangelism
"Welcome to the Heart for God podcast. With many years of experience pastoring and helping to start churches, Dr. Jim Townsley has some practical and biblical advice that can be a great help to you and your ministry. On this podcast, Dr. Townsley and other guests with special expertise cover a variety of topics. His goal is to help you lead your church to be a healthy, strong, and balanced ministry, and for your family to be happy, healthy, and living for the Lord. Welcome to the podcast today. I'm glad that you joined us. I have with me here Brother Matt Barber, and he is an evangelist. He's been at our church since Sunday. This is now Wednesday, so he's had several opportunities to speak to us and preach the Word of God. Matt, it's good to have you with us this morning. Good to be here. It's a pleasure. So I want you to just say a little bit about your background, who you are, your family, what God has called you to do, and where you were before. Well, I was raised in a pastor's home. I had great opportunities to hear the gospel. I got saved as a child. When I was 16, the Lord finally got a hold of my heart, and I surrendered to him, and that's when I felt called to preach. I went on to Bible college. I went to Baptist College of Ministry up in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, back in the early days of the college there, and that's where I met my wife. So a lot of good things happened in those days. And then our first ministry was in Woodridge, Illinois, where I went there as an assistant pastor. So that's in the Chicago area? Yep, that's right, southwest suburbs of Chicago. And within six months, I found myself the pastor of the church, and we stayed there for 13 years. And you have family? Yes, sir. Yep. So my wife, Chelsea, and then we have five children, and so the Lord's blessed us richly. And the years at Woodridge were wonderful. We learned a lot. The church grew. It had been through a lot, and we were kind of in a re -establishing, rebuilding phase at the church. And then in 2018 and 2019, I began to feel the Lord stirring my heart towards evangelism, and that's where I felt called originally. And by 2021, the Lord finally gave us the green light, and we stepped out by faith. And so we've been traveling full -time now the last two years. So stepping out by faith is no small exaggeration, because for an evangelist, to get started, people don't know you, they don't know your name. So how does that all come about? How do you end up getting meetings? Well, that's a good question. When I first announced it to our church, they were shocked that we were moving on, but I felt that the church was ready for another hand at the till, so to speak. The church was established, and I guess they thought that I was going out into evangelism by popular demand, and that was not the case. I didn't have anything on the schedule, and I was just trusting the Lord. I expected to be working full -time or part -time as we got meetings lined up, but God and His mercy just allowed the meetings to come in. And they didn't come in all at once, but the Lord stayed ahead of us by three or four weeks or a month or two, and He just filled up our year. We found ourselves traveling two or three weeks a month, plus Sundays and Wednesdays here and there, different places that first year. This second year has been a lot more busy. We spent the whole summer just packed all the way through. We're out west and got to see some beautiful country. But the best thing is we've been seeing God's blessing and seeing God just confirm the step of faith with meetings and with fruit. Dr. Darrell Bock So you're traveling with your family. So you've got a pole -behind trailer, and you've got seven people in that thing. How do you live in that? David Jones Well, you know, the Lord already provided the Ford Excursion. That's right. It's a 2002 Excursion. It's the gas kind, the gas guzzler, but we already had the Excursion, and when the Lord was stirring us up to go, of course, the first question is, can we do this? And the first thought is, no, we can't do this. This is impossible. But then we began to look into it, and we found some pole -behind travel trailer options that would work for our family. In fact, we only found one option big enough that I could actually haul with our truck. And so it's got several slide -outs, and it has a lot of roomy space for the kids to sleep. I say roomy in relative terms, but it works for us. It's tight, but we've been doing fine the last couple of years. Dr. Darrell Bock So you've been a pastor. Now you're traveling as an evangelist. There's got to be a pretty good perspective you have. What is the difference in what are some of the things that people might be interested in, the difference between being a pastor and being on the road as an evangelist? David Jones Well, there's some stark differences, and I guess just going back to the root of it is there are two different gifts in the Bible. We have them listed in Ephesians, Chapter 4. Of course, you have the foundational gifts of the apostles and prophets. Those are no more because the foundation has been laid. But then it goes on to mention evangelists and then pastors and teachers, and I think pastor -teacher is kind of the one idea of pastoring and teaching a flock. So what is the evangelist? Well, if you think about it in the order of events, before you have a church, you have to have gospel preaching so people can be saved so you can have a church, right? So evangelist, an the word evangelist comes from the word evangel or gospel. So an evangelist preaches the gospel, but all of us do that, right? But it's a special gifting that focuses on the gospel. So as an evangelist, I think God gives a special desire, burden, boldness, or even I think also clarity in preaching the gospel so that people can understand. And that's not something to boast of, it's just something that God begins to reveal what your strengths are, what his giftings are. So evangelism is a pioneering gift. Oftentimes evangelists will plant churches, but that's not always the case. My older brother Nathan is a pastor. He planted a church. He would not call himself an evangelist, but he planted a church. So God can use different gifts for different things. I was an evangelist, but I was pastoring for 13 years. But the whole time, I knew I was an evangelist who was trying really hard to be a pastor. It's hard to explain that, but I knew that. But I'm thankful for that background so I could understand the ins and outs of being a pastor and how a church works. But an evangelist is a pioneering gift. You lay the foundation. But an evangelist can also be a restorative gift. I think of Paul. Obviously Paul was an apostle, but if you look at the way he traveled, he was trailblazing. And that's not something just an apostle can do. There were others who did that. In fact, when Paul and Barnabas split up, Barnabas took Mark, and he went off in a different direction doing the same thing that Paul was doing. So there were many who were traveling around in an itinerant way, preaching and laying new foundations through church planting. But then Paul continuously came back and had a desire to circle back and establish and strengthen the churches that he had been a part of. Well, that's itinerant work. I think in America we see a lot of the typical evangelist who travels itinerantly, preaches revival meetings. But that's not unfounded. There's a basis for that in Scripture. I just think the evangelist is more than a revival man. An evangelist can plant churches. An evangelist can go to the mission field. But I think there is a desire in evangelists to not only plant or lay a foundation, but then to be used of God to establish or to even bring an outside perspective that can help a church. And the pastor is there day in, day out. God uses that outside perspective and that special outside gifting to complement the pastor and to help the church grow. Dr. Darrell Bock So what would you say your goal is? As you go from church to church, what is your purpose and goal? What do you feel you want to accomplish by doing that? Dr. Mark Bock Well, a lot of evangelists focus on the word revival, and that's a good word. It's actually more of an Old Testament word, although we see the concept in the New Testament as well. But basically the way I look at it is churches need to thrive and new churches need to be started. My role in that would be to preach the gospel so folks can be saved. But then if I'm going back through established churches, then my goal is to see churches restored, revived to a place where they can grow again. And obviously individuals in that church being, to use another word, quickened. David talked about that. He says, quicken thou me according to thy word. And I think the evangelist can be used of the Lord to have God's power to open eyes, to quicken, to revitalize a church so they can grow. Not that he brings revival with him. Not that he has anything better than the pastor has. But it's a different gifting that complements the work of the pastor. Dr. Darrell Bock So a different train of thought here. From the perspective of a pastor, having an evangelist come into your church, how can a pastor best prepare to have an evangelist come, and how can he take care of him while he is there? Well, I mean, going back to Ephesians 4, they're called the gifts of the Holy Spirit to the church, right? So the pastor, I think people see that clearly, the pastor is a gift to a church. If you have a pastor, you have a gift. God has gifted and blessed your church. But I think sometimes pastors forget that the evangelist is also a gift to the church. And there are many pastors now who aren't having evangelists for various reasons. And I would say they're robbing their church from a gift that God wants to give them. Not because the evangelist is so special, because it's a gift God designed for the health of the church. So knowing, seeing it as a gift that God has established, make room for it, you know, promote it.

A highlight from John Zmirak
"Welcome to the Eric Mataxas Show. We'll get you from point A to point B. But if you're looking for point C, well, buddy, you're on your own. But if you wait right here, in just about two minutes, the bus to point C will be coming right by. And now, here's your Ralph Kramden of the airwaves, Eric Mataxas. Hey, folks, welcome to the program, I like to call it. John Zmierak, you are such a special guest on this program that we were willing to just do a phone connection. Normally, we have to have our guests on video, but you're such a big shot now that you can demand phone only if you if you choose. So welcome to the show. Thank you, Eric. I'm sheltering in place in an undisclosed location. Well, the weird thing is we're both in Dallas. And I was at an event last night. Now, of course, I want to talk to you about the news of the day. But I was at an event last night where a guy claiming to be your landlord came up to me. And I just thought Dallas is such a great place where where where, you know, people like John Zmierak live, there are landlords that that that actually, you know, think the way that we do, it really was. It was a very encouraging event for me, I have to tell you, and I'm sorry you couldn't be there. But I know that you've got you've got a busy life. What I've got is dozens of an open boxes, I'm moving apartments into the house of this wonderful new landlord is really good guy and a fellow believer in America and in Christ. And but I've got two beagles who have to be taught that this new apartment is not a place to go to the bathroom because it's all new to them. And I just am moving everything I own from one place to another. And so we're not doing video because if we did video right now, you would think I was actually Hunter Biden at a Motel six hiding from my Chinese handlers. Yeah, we don't want to look like that. I do not look my best because I do not have any of my toiletries. I can't I have one toothbrush. I can't find any soap. It's not brushes. Do you need, John? I know you got the two beagles, but you really need one toothbrush. I want you to downsize. At this point in life, you should be downsizing to one toothbrush and maybe one and a half beagles at most. No, my God. I look if I my girlfriend would allow it, I would have nine beagles, but nine beagles. OK, negotiated. We negotiated. I told her I have a two beagle minimum. So I rescued two twins together and brother and sister. And they lick each other's faces and they play fight. And they still act like seeing them. They're so you could die. You could die just looking at them. All right. So what shall we talk about? There's a lot in the news. We could talk about any of it. What are you writing about, thinking about? Well, I took a few days off of the moon, so I don't have as many columns. But I did. I did have one that I I spent was actually inspired by a conversation you and I had here. And then I talked about it with the great Charlie Kirk for a full hour. And it relates to my new book, which is coming out in a few weeks. No Second Amendment, no first. The title of the piece, the stream is called Liberal Christians see us as pets who need to be declawed. And this is a theme we've talked about before.

A highlight from 1243. Should You Trust Pet DNA Tests?
"Celebrating the connection with our pets, this is Animal Radio featuring your dream team, veterinarian Dr. Debbie White and groomer, Joey Vellani. And here are your hosts, Hal Abrams and Judy Francis. Do you know what kind of pet you have? Well, certainly if it's a cat or dog, you probably know the difference. But do you know what kind of breed? Is it a mutt? What is making up the DNA of your dog or your cat? And do you care? A lot of people do. There's about 10 different tests on the market right now where you can send in saliva or cheek spittle, I guess? Yeah, cheek swab. It's actually the epithelial. So it's the cells that you're getting off the cheek, not necessarily the spit. Epithelial? Is that what you said there? I learned so much from you. And they'll tell you if it's what kind of breed it is or if it's made up of several different breeds. You did this, Judy. I think your results came back like lion and elephant. They weren't even dogs. It was so bizarre. She's full grown now. She weighs nine pounds. And it came back all these St. Bernard's, German Shepherds, Belgian Malinois. I thought, really? So that was a cheek swab. And then when I did the blood... Oh, you did a blood test too? I did a blood. It came back Jack Russell, miniature pincher and Maltese. And are you going with that? Oh, definitely. She's definitely Jack Russell. It came out 50 % Jack Russell. And that's what she is. Now, why did you want to know this information? Well, first of all, I didn't want a Jack Russell because I did my research and I know how hyper they are. And I'm not that hyper person. I want a more laid back dog. And so I did my research and got her from a rescue when she was eight weeks old. They said she was a Chihuahua, but there was no Chihuahua in this girl. And I questioned that as she got a little bit older. And I thought, okay, I got to find out. And I wanted to know what she was because people ask, people look at her, and everybody had their guesses. And it's like, I don't know. And I wanted to know what my dog was. But would it be safe to say you didn't want a Jack Russell, but you love your dog? Oh, I would not trade her for the world. I'll keep that little 50 % Jack. So the blood test really made little difference in anything, really, except telling people. Just what it was. It was kind of like bragging rights to know what my dog is and be able to say when people ask. That's basically why I did it. But then again, still, at least I know if there's anything I should look at, you know, with the breeds that she may be predisposed to down the line. You mean like a sickness or a disease? Health? Yeah. If she starts doing something or something happens and I can say, well, that's typical of this breed. So what kind of diseases and sicknesses are typical of, what did you say? Was it Jack Russell? Jack Russell, 50%. And a Min Pin? Well, we can see a lot of things with knees, so we can see patellar luxations. She's had two knee surgeries, two back legs. But that also fits with a lot of other small breeds. But, you know, there can be some host of skin diseases, allergies that we may not have like a specific test for. You know, but there are some conditions in some breeds, like say golden retrievers have a genetic linked with seizures. So if you had a yellow large breed dog and you didn't know what it was and it started developing seizures. And if I knew this dog was a golden retriever, I'd say, wow, you know, sometimes golden retrievers can be very challenging to manage with seizures. And we really have to use every means at our disposal to try to get those seizures under control. So it wouldn't change necessarily, you know, would I treat or not treat, but it might make us say, okay, our expectations are this is going to be a more challenging patient to try to manage. So that's one example. But there's a whole tons of things, you know, cataracts are inherited, heart diseases with certain breeds can be inherited, and kidney problems with cats. There's a type of polycystic kidney disease, a kidney disease in Himalayans and Persian type cats that can cause different problems. So, you know, there's all sorts of things that there are genetic tests for. It doesn't mean your dog or cat will get them. It just may mean they have some genetic tendency or genetic marker for that. So I see these online tests and but you do it in your office there? Do veterinarians offer these tests? Yeah, I mean, not everyone is going to do that. But we we do like that. And it's one is it's kind of the ooh, cool factor, you know, so you can, you know, have a party and people will ask and you can actually have some answer that sounds, you know, like you didn't just make this up. That's one important thing. But I do think it can help guide some decisions on awareness and potentially your pet's health down the road. So I wouldn't say it will make me do something different for a patient as far as putting them to sleep. But I do think it's important information to be armed with to know what you need to worry about to watch for in your pet's life. I agree. And if you can't afford it and somebody asks what kind of dog you have, say snuffle up against it really will throw the middle. It'll be different. So we're going to talk to a lady today, a doctor, Dr. Lisa Moses. She practices pain and palliative care at the Angel Animal Medical Center in Boston. And she says you may not want to bet the farm when you do one of these tests, as sometimes the information may not be accurate. And I wanted to find out about this. How important is it? Are people making decisions with bad information? So we'll have her on the show in just a few minutes to talk about that. Also today, we're going to be talking to the folks over at Smoke Alarm Monitoring. What's this guy's name? It's spelled really weird. Z -S -O -L -T. Zolt. Is that Hungarian? What is that? Sounds like it could be. He says our pets are starting fires. He sells smoke alarms for a living. And he says that our pets are actually, while they're unattended, starting fires in our house. See, I hide the matches. You do? Little delinquents. Oh my goodness. Yes. What do you expect? But first, your calls toll free from the free animal radio app for iPhone and Android. Let's go to Gary. Hey, Gary. How are you? I'm very good, sir. How are you? Very good. Where are you calling from today? You have kind of that southern twang. North Carolina. North Carolina. How is North Carolina today? It's kind of warm. It's not unbearably hot, but it's a warm day. What's going on with the animals? I have the whole team here for you. Okay. Well, I've been listening to your program lately over the last several weeks and was interested in the discussion that I've heard about yeast infections, skin conditions, and the treatments. And then also, there was also somewhat of a separate discussion about the use of human products on animals and how effective they can be, or harmful, or whatever the case may be. And I wanted to tell you about my little guy. I'll give you a little background on him, a little of the tale of the tape. He's approximately eight years old, as far as we know. He's a Yorkie mix, he's a small guy, just a shade under eight pounds, and I found him abandoned out in the country. And he was in pretty bad shape. He was missing hair and had a lot of parasites and skin infections, yeast, and all that. And we've been battling it for nearly three years now, but he's made much improvement, just great improvement. I kind of took it upon myself to use a product that's designed for human females, actually, who might have that kind of affliction, and rubbed it liberally on the elephant skin areas of my dog. And after doing that for three or four days in a row, it really seemed to help clear it up. What do you think of that, Doc? Well, we have to be precise when we talk about different products, because there's some products that actually can have harmful ingredients in them, and some won't hurt, and actually have active ingredients that might be appropriate. So I'm going to back up, because when we talk about elephant skin, and kind of that thickened skin, like for anybody who's not seen this in dogs, it typically is when their skin gets real thick, leathery, they lose the hair in the area, and it actually, from a distance, looks like elephant skin. And that's a combination of what we call hyperpigmentation, so the skin turns dark, and lichenification, which is where the skin becomes thick, and there's extra layers, if you will, that kind of are put on top of the skin. Those things happen from a couple possibilities, and we can see it with allergies, but really with things like yeast and bacterial infections. So it sounds like you're certainly barking up the right tree there, but the cautions I have with some of the female yeast products that are used for vaginal yeast infections, there are some that actually contain anesthetics. A vagus cell, for example, contains an ingredient called benzocaine. And this can be highly - Well, that's actually what I used. I used the generic, but yeah, you're on the right tree there. Okay. Yeah, so actually, benzocaine can cause toxicities in both dogs and cats. So just licking it off their skin, it can actually be toxic to the red blood cells, causes what we call hemoglobinemia. So if it contains that ingredient, I would say, put it back on the shelf and save it for your wife in the household. But there are certainly, say, athlete's foot creams that contain chlorotrimazole, which is an antifungal. In that, we've used that on surface yeast infections. But the reality is, if we've got that kind of change in the skin, most of those pets actually need kind of a two -pronged approach. So the topicals only get you so far, and they really need to be on some kind of oral or systemic therapy. So most of the pets that I have with that kind of skin can take a course of maybe three months to get them improved, controlling the itch, controlling the infection. If they've got yeast or bacteria, then we put them on either an antibiotic or an oral yeast form, like ketoconazole, per se.

Higher across the board for all of the major indices here in the U .S., the Dow Jones Industrial Average up by more than 100 points back around that 33 -600 level, about a three -tenths of a percent gain on the day. The S &P 500 just a smidge below 4300, higher by about six -tenths of a percent. The Nasdaq Composite higher by eight -tenths of a percent, and the Russell 2000 posting a similar move higher, about nine -tenths of a percent on the day. Yeah, it was kind of like a civil kind of day. I feel like we trade like that, right? It's like multiple different trend lines in a day, if you will. But in terms of the equity markets, what really caught my attention was what went on with the SOX, the Philadelphia Stock Exchange Semiconductor Index, 2930 names higher in today's session. The index up 1 .8 percent. Micron obviously a bit of a bummer, and that was the only name that was down on the day on that forecast for worse than expected loss. But man, Katie, that was definitely a group that was a standout in today's session. Yeah, really interesting to see the rest of the industry rip on a day where Micron obviously did the opposite of that. You take a look at some of the industry groups. You also had autos having a good day, up 2 .4 percent, and then semis, as we were just talking about, up 1 .7 percent. Those were your biggest gainers. You go down the list, there were a few names in the red, not too many, but down there at the bottom you can see utilities once again in the red.

Governor Jay Inslee is doing all of his work digitally remotely uh today because uh he has COVID -19 tested positive this morning he got his shot the updated booster shot last night but we're told that he'd already been exposed at that point and as the of supply home sales drop or the supply of homes for sale drops the price for homes is rising U .S. mortgage rates are at their highest level since 2000 according to the mortgage bankers association two weekend deadlines could cripple the federal aviation administration as Ian Duncan reports in the Washington Post. Let's check in now with Ian Duncan who joins us on Northwest News Radio. Ian if you would take us through each of these scenarios separately first if there's a government shutdown how much of the airport would be working for free next Monday yeah that's right so you would have air traffic controllers would be continuing to come to work planes would be able to continue to fly safely but they would be unpaid and then some of the behind the scenes work that goes on at the FAA those workers would be coming in unpaid as well and then on the TSA side you've got the same thing officers that that bring you through security they would be required to continue to show up but they also be working without pay and I think more people probably have heard of the looming government shutdown than this second scenario when it comes to renewing the law that allows the existence of the FAA. Tell us about this. That's right so there is a sort of technical term is the FAA authorization that requires at the same time as the government funding Congress aims to kind of reauthorize it for several years at a time and they haven't been able to get that done and so this deals with some of the kind of the taxing that the FAA does to raise money to pay for technology and to help fund projects at airports and so that would also expire and just kind of further complicate the picture for the agency amid a broad government shutdown if we that's where end up. And as you report Senator Maria Cantwell from here in Washington State chairs the committee that oversees the FAA what is her strategy there in the Senate and how does it differ from the House? So the Senate has tied the extension of the FAA in with a measure that would end funding. government It's not really clear if the House would even take that up if it passes the Senate and so the House has kind of got a plan B which is to have just a sort of very short bill that would just keep the FAA going until the end of the year. But likewise, clear it's not that that will get through the House in time and then if it does the Senate will pick it up in before Saturday's deadline. You and I know this probably won't be the last government shutdown that we talk about in our careers, but when you think air about travel and security playing into shutdown negotiations, how has that played out before? So in the last shutdown which went on for over 30 days in 2018 and then into the beginning of 2019, what you started to see was TSA officers not showing up for work, going and finding other work because they just needed a paycheck. And then on the very last day the of shutdown, a kind of critical handful of air traffic controllers didn't show up to that quite quickly translated into delays at big airports and that has been credited with kind of helping bring President Trump, then President Trump back to the table to end the shutdown. So we'll see if maybe air travel can play a pivotal role this time as well. In any case, Sunday is the day to mind keep in when we consider this looming government shutdown. And the FAA is an organization, 2023 so far. You can read much more about that online at washingtonpost dot com. Money update, the markets have had a very strong trading day so far today, but with 40 minutes left to go in the trading day, we have seen some of that momentum falter here and there. The Dow still up by triple digits, 172 points or half percent. The S &P
Rep. Troy Nehls: Garland, Wray Will Do Everything to Cover Biden
"Willing to stop arresting political opponents and going full commie. So, until that point, we need more people willing to, cause it's radio, bust us bells if you know what I mean. We need bell busters. And you seem like one of them and I like that. So, this hearing is happening with Derek Farland the other day, otherwise known as Merrick Garland, and you were having none of this. You just sliced into this guy. This guy I think makes Eric Holder know what I mean? I'm a legitimate attorney general. This guy is the most corrupt person I in that office in my life. And I was glad you didn't get interrupted when you were calling him out. Your thoughts on the status of the Justice Department under Garland? Well, thank you. It's a great question and we I all know think the American people are figuring this out that there is that. We talk about the two -tier justice system, the justice system under Garland and even the FBI Director Wray that will do everything to provide that cover for the crime family named Biden and then what you're asking and what they've done to Donald Trump over the past several years. So no, there is a two -tier justice system. I guess I am one of those bell busters and I know that you served in NYPD for years. I'm a 30 -year lawman myself. I was a chair of a large county in Texas. So I just call it the way it is. I'm authentic and I think I think people appreciate it, but AG Garland, you know, you get five minutes and you want to seize that that moment sees that opportunity. I didn't give him a lot of time to answer the questions that I had for him because I knew I would just get nothing but delay tactics and lies. So I answered the questions to him, but he did the video, the video of Joe Biden up there talking about firing Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor, or Ukraine and get the one billion dollars to me. That is bribery. The quid

A highlight from 1415: Bitcoin Will Soon Hit $500,000 - Winklevoss Twins
"Welcome everybody to Crypto News Alerts, the number one daily Bitcoin pod. In today's show, I'll be breaking down the latest Bitcoin technical analysis as Bitcoin recaptures $27 ,000 and quoting Max Keiser, the high priest of Bitcoin, Bitcoin is the North Star guiding to the only safe haven asset in the world that protects against inflation, confiscation and censorship preach. Also in today's show, Ethereum futures ETFs can start trading as early as next week. According to top Bloomberg analysts, we'll also be discussing the SEC pushing back the deadline for spot Bitcoin ETF apps, definitely not a good look. And speaking of ETF apps, I'm also going to be sharing the five highlights of Gary Gensler's evasive testimony before Congress quoting Senator Warren Davidson. Gary Gensler's tenure at the SEC highlights two key problems. Number one, Gary Gensler's problem and number two, the SEC's structural problem. That's why I introduced the SEC Stabilization Act to fire Gary Gensler and restructure the SEC. Let's freaking go. Also in today's show, crypto analyst Michal van de Poppe predicts a very positive quarter four for 2023. I'll be sharing his targets in which he outlines. We're also going to be discussing the SEC's inaction on the spot Bitcoin ETF is a complete and utter disaster, according to the Winklevoss twins. And speaking of the Winklevoss twins, I'm also going to be sharing with you their $500 ,000 Bitcoin price prediction, which they say is coming soon. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market. All this plus so much more in today's show. Yo what's good crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at cryptonewsalerts .net. Again that's cryptonewsalerts .net. Welcome everyone. This is pod episode number 1415. I'm your host JV. Today is September 28, 2023 and Bitcoin is finally back above 27 ,000 as we're pumping right when I hit the live button. We're currently above 27 ,100 up over 300 % today and we continue climbing. Welcome everyone in the live chat. I gracefully appreciate y 'all. Yeah, who knows? Maybe we'll hit 28 ,000 by the time today's live stream is over. Let's see. And make sure to let me know where you're tuning in from in that live chat as I'll be giving everyone a shout out towards the end of the show. And with that being shared, fam, now let's dive into today's market watch. As you can see here, every major crypto back in the green. Bitcoin above 27 G's. We got Ether up three and a half percent trading at $1 ,655 BNB, XRP, Cardano, you name it. And checking out coinmarketcap .com, we're currently sitting above $1 .07 trillion with about $26 billion in volume in the past 24 hours, Bitcoin dominance at 49 .1 % and even the Ether dominance on the rise today at 18 .5 % and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past 24 hours, holy moly, compound up 20 % trading under 49 bucks, followed by Thor chain up 13 % trading at $1 .94, followed by Lido Dow up 8 % trading at $1 .59 and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past week, massive gains, which we love to see, especially after a pretty bearish altcoin season to say the least. We got CompLead in the pack here as well up 20 % and Rune up 13 .4 % and RLB up 13 % and checking out the crypto greed and fear index, we're currently rated a 46 in fear yesterday at 44 last week, a 47 and last month, a 39 in fear. So there you have it, fam. How many of you are currently bullish on Bitcoin and how many of you took advantage of the recent dip? If so, let me know. It's good to see we pump in once again. So hopefully those positions are now in the green. Now let's break down today's Bitcoin technical analysis, check out the charts and why specifically the market is pumping right now. Here we go. Let's get it. Bitcoin hit new weekly highs after the September 28th Wall Street open as markets awaited fresh cues from the US Federal Reserve. And here you can see in the Bitcoin one hour Campbell chart, pretty freaking bullish to say the least. Data from Cointelegraph and TradingView showed Bitcoin price strength staging a comeback, having delivered what some referred to as a classic pump and dump 24 hours prior during the performance. Bitcoin hit a high of 26 .8, which appeared on Bitstamp as a result of 2 % daily gains before Bitcoin retraced all of its progress, then a slower grind higher than took hold with the bulls edging closer to 27 ,000, which we finally just recaptured here a few moments ago. Now GDP for quarter two grew by 1 .7 % year on year below the projected 2%, while the PCE index data for August came in in line with the expectations, quoting analyst Keith Allen, bring on the volatility. Now meanwhile, data from Binance's order book uploaded by Allen showed little by way of resistance standing in the way of the spot price under the 27 ,000 mark. So as you can see, just more bullishness for the king crypto, the macro data constituted just the prelude of the day's main event. Meanwhile, Jerome Powell, the chairman of the Federal Reserve due to the comment later on today, Powell, whose recent words failed to deliver noticeable volatility to the crypto markets was due to speak at the Fed's conversation with the chairman, a teacher town hall meeting event in Washington DC at 4 p .m. Eastern today. Now commenting on the state of play on Bitcoin markets, popular trader Dan crypto trades was a little more optimistic around the strength of the day's move compared to yesterday, September 27th, quoting him here back to yesterday's highs, but with considerably less open interests. No doubt there is longs chase in here, but it is less frothy than it was yesterday. Would still like to see longs chill out and not get to a full retrace later on. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the analysts. Meanwhile, quoting another analyst, right, capital Bitcoin is right back at the bull market support band cluster of moving averages, challenging to break out beyond them. Let's freaking go. Now, elsewhere in the day's analysis, he acknowledged that 29 ,000 could make a reappearance and still form a part of a broader come down for BTC. As he shares here, it's important to remember the Bitcoin could technically rally even as high as 29 ,000 to form a new lower high, which would be phase A and B. He explained alongside this chart. So there you have it. Let me know if you are currently more bullish or bearish on the King crypto and quoting the high priest of Bitcoin, Max Kaiser, Bitcoin is the North star guiding to the only safe haven asset in the world that protects against inflation confiscation and censorship preach. Now welcome to y 'all just joining us in today's podcast. As always, I appreciate everyone's daily support and means the world. And now let's discuss our next story of the day as Bitcoin continues to pump, shall we? We're going to be discussing the Ethereum futures ETFs, which can get approval. They say potentially as early as next week. So let's break this one down, shall we? Ether futures ETFs could start trading for the first time in the United States as early as next week. According to top Bloomberg analysts on September 28th, which is today, Bloomberg intelligence analyst, James Safart said in an ex post, it was looking like the sec is going to let a bunch of Ethereum futures ETFs go next week. Potentially. His comments were in response to fellow ETF analyst, Eric Balchunes, who said he was hearing that the U S SCC wanted to accelerate the launch of Ethereum future ETFs quitting him here. They want it off their plate before the shutdown, he said, adding that he's heard various filers updates on their documents by Friday afternoon so they can start trading as early as Tuesday next week. As outlined here on X. Now the U S S government's expected to shut down at 1201 a .m. Eastern on October 1st. If Congress fails to agree on or provide funding for the new fiscal year, which is expected to impact the country's financial regulators amongst federal agencies. Now neither specified their sources for the latest update on the long list of crypto ETFs in the queue. There are currently 15 ether futures ETFs from nine issuers currently awaiting approval. According to the analysts in a September 27th note, which is yesterday, companies proposing an Ethereum futures or hybrid ETF product include VanEck pro shares, grayscale volatility shares bitwise direction, as well as round Hill. The analysts gave ether future ETFs a 90 % chance of launching in October with Valkyrie's ether exposure on October 3rd, quoting them here. We expect pure Ethereum futures ETFs to start trading the following week, thanks to volatility shares actions. However, we don't expect all of them to launch. So do note that now as previously reported that ether futures ETFs may be approved in October causing the 11 % spike in ether prices and probably why the Ethereum dominance is up as it's been stagnant and down for quite some time. Ether prices are on the gain, currently just under $1 ,700 and we'll see how high we continue to pump, but do note crypto future products aren't as hotly as anticipated as their spot based alternatives. There are already been Bitcoin futures ETFs approved in the United States since 2021, which is a fact, which leads us to the million dollar question. Why have they approved a futures ETFs, but continue to deny and delay all the spot ETFs? We're going to be getting to that a little later as I share with you the highlights from Congress pressing the chairman of the SEC, Gary Gensler. It's going to get very interesting here in a little bit, but now let's dive a little deeper and discuss specifically the spot Bitcoin ETFs and what is happening and why they're being pushed back and the latest updates of where we're currently at. So here we go and welcome y 'all just tuning in. Make sure to smash that like fam. The US SEC has delayed deciding whether to approve or disapprove spot Ether ETFs. And like I said, we're going to be getting in October potentially get some approvals, but in separate notices filed September 27th, the SEC said it would designate a longer period on whether to approve or disapprove these proposed changes. The commission finds it inappropriate to designate a longer period within which to take action on the proposed rule change so that it has sufficient time to consider the proposed rule change and the issues raised there within. The delay came the same day as the NASDAQ market filed the proposed rule change with the SEC for listing its mix ETH basically ETF, a combination of Ether holdings and futures contracts and also proposed rule changes with the New York Stock Exchange, ARCA for the Grayscale Ethereum Futures Trust, hashtag Bitcoin Futures ETF and the CBOE BXE exchange for the Franklin Bitcoin ETF were all filed. September 27th, that's right. If you're not familiar with Franklin Templeton, there are one and a half trillion dollar asset manager. They're also applying for an ETF. Now the SEC announced September 26th, it would designate a longer period to decide on these spot ETF applications. And as James Safart shares here, here's VanEx delay as expected. So another one, I mean, exactly what we were expecting from the SEC. Now in August, ARK investment manager, founder and CEO Kathy Wood speculated that should the SEC move forward with the spot ETF approvals, it would allow multiple listings simultaneously to avoid giving any single company an advantage over another in the market. Her remarks came before Grayscale Investments won a court battle with the SEC over its spot Bitcoin ETF app, which will likely be reviewed in which they're trying to turn their GBTC product into a spot ETF. So hopefully it happens. To date, the SEC has never approved the spot crypto ETF in the United States, but has allowed the listing of crypto linked futures ETFs and a leveraged Bitcoin futures ETF. Manipulation, fam. The next deadlines for the spot crypto ETF apps from firms, which include the largest asset manager in the world, BlackRock, Wisdom Tree, Invesco, Galaxy, Valkyrie, Bitwise and Fidelity are all scheduled for October. So we'll see how this is likely to play out considering October is now only three days away. Are we going to get some ETF approvals by then? Who knows? I think more than likely they're going to push it back again. However, Congress right now is pressing Gary Gensler to approve a spot Bitcoin ETF and ETPs immediately. So now let's break this down. If you missed Gensler, he was pressed by Congress just yesterday. And I know it's on everyone's mind. So let's break down some of the highlights from this recent hearing with Congress and the chairman of the SEC, Gary Gensler. Let's break it down, shall we? Here we go. Blame for kneecapping capital markets in the U .S. and slam for dodging questions around Bitcoin and Pokemon cards. SEC chair Gensler appears to have had one hell of a grilling from Congress this week. September 27th, the U .S. SEC chief again found himself in front of lawmakers in a scheduled hearing to discuss his agency's oversight of the markets. Here are some of the highlights. First and foremost, you are the Tonya Harding of security regulations. We should create a Gary Gensler diss track, right? One of the more colorful analogies came from U .S. Representative Andy Barr, who accused Gensler of kneecapping the U .S. capital markets with regulatory red tape. Barr referred to the old testimony from Gensler where Gensler argued that the U .S. is the largest, most sophisticated and innovative capital market in the world and that shouldn't have been taken for granted as even gold medalists must keep training. With all due respect, Mr. Chairman, if the U .S. capital markets are gold medalists, you are the Tonya Harding of securities regulations. Ouch. You are kneecapping the U .S. capital markets with an avalanche of red tape coming out of your commission. Preach. Barr is presumably referring to a scandal where U .S. ice skater Tonya Harding, I'm sure you all remember the story, I was a kid when this happened, and an assailant to attack her rival Nancy Kerrigan in the lead up to the 94 U .S. Figure Skating Championships and Winter Olympics. Kerrigan ended up not competing in the U .S. Championships and here is John Dickens who shared it here. Mr. Barr to Gensler, it's hilarious, you gotta watch these clips for yourself if you haven't seen them. So the next highlight, I wish the Biden administration would say, you are fired. That's right, shout out to Warren Davidson who also ripped into Gensler saying he hoped that the Biden administration would fire him. Powerful words. Davidson accused Gensler of pushing a woke political and social agenda and abusing his role as the SEC chairman. Preach. Massive shout out to the senators here doing their job. Damn good job. The U .S. Representative added that he hopes that the SEC Stabilization Act he introduced with fellow representative Tom Emmer could make it happen. Quoting him here, you're making the case for this bill, which is the SEC Stabilization Act. Every day you're acting as a chairman, he concluded, and Gensler wasn't even given a chance to respond. Now next highlight, Gensler reiterates Bitcoin isn't a security. That's right. When asked by U .S. House Committee Financial Services Chair Patrick McHenry whether Bitcoin is a security, Gensler eventually relented stating the Bitcoin didn't meet the Howie test. Quoting him here, it does not meet the Howie test, which is the law of the land. Then McHenry suggested Bitcoin must be a commodity, which Gensler avoided answering. Mr. No Clarity Gary, hence how he got the nickname, saying the test for that is outside the scope of U .S. security laws. Mr. Gensler, we're living in a clown world with this guy. Henry also suggested that Gensler try to choke off the digital asset ecosystem facts and refuse to be transparent with Congress about the SEC's connections with the FTX and former CEO SBF facts. Gensler also wasn't given the chance to respond to the claims made by McHenry. Next highlight, are Pokemon trading card securities? Gensler says it depends. Can't make this stuff up. Quoting Representative Richie Torres, I cross -examine SEC Chair Gensler about the term investment contract, which is key to determining his authority over crypto. Gensler struggled to answer basic questions like whether an investment contract requires a contract. His evasions are defeating and damning. Suppose I was to purchase Pokemon card. Would you constitute a security for this transaction? Gensler responded, well, I don't know the context before eventually concluding it isn't a security if you purchased it in a store. And then Torres asked if I were to purchase a tokenized Pokemon card on a digital exchange via the blockchain. Is that then a transaction? And then Mr. No Clarity Gary said, I'd have to know more because I don't know anything. Yeah, you can't make this stuff up. Gensler then explained to it when it's investing the public can anticipate profits based upon the efforts of others. Then the core of the Howie test, which it is, Torres called Gensler's evasions as damning to say the least. And the next highlight, a sign of defiance. Meanwhile, amongst the back and forth cross examinations between Gensler and representatives, the eagle eyed observers noticed a Coinbase stand with crypto logo behind the SEC chairman. Isn't that interesting? The Coinbase led initiative is a 14 month long campaign that launched back in August aiming to push crypto legislation in the United States. Coinbase also ran a stand with crypto day, which took place in Washington, D .C. September 27th to advocate for better cryptocurrency innovation and policy. So again, shout out to Warren Davidson, Tom Emmer, all the senators for holding Gary Gensler accountable. Hopefully they do something about it. What's your thoughts, fam? Do you think Gary is likely to listen to them and follow their instructions and approve a Bitcoin ETF immediately? Or do you think he'll continue kicking the can down the road as long as possible until he leaves his position as the chairman of the SEC? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now let's break down the latest prediction coming from crypto analyst Michael Vanay Pop for some price actions for Bitcoin for the fourth quarter, which we are currently in for 2023. Then we'll break down the latest from the Winklevoss twins and their five hundred thousand dollar Bitcoin price action as the price action of Bitcoin continues to pump, baby. Let's go. Here we go. Let's break this baby down. Crypto trader Michael Vanay Pop is expressing bullish sentiment on Bitcoin in the coming months. Despite the recent struggles in a new video, he says that Bitcoin is on the cusp of reaching levels that offer accumulation opportunities per inch. According to the analyst, the trader Bitcoin could subsequently start an uptrend. Ultimately, Bitcoin is into an area of consolidation here, which makes it very likely we're going to have to retest here at twenty five, six and twenty five eight. If we are having a recess in that region, then there is this zone where I want to start buying my entries because of the recess, which is the ultimate recess. And if we're not going to get that, the flip to twenty six thousand five hundred, that is going to be the area where I think I want to activate my positions as well. And then we can start targeting twenty eight thousand. And then we can also start targeting the higher numbers, thirty thousand dollars plus or even more in the projection of quarter four. That is going to be very positive overall. Let me know if you agree that we'll have an overall positive quarter as we about to enter October. Let's go. Vanay Pop also says Bitcoin's current price action is similar to what was witnessed in the prior pre halving year, quitting him again. As long as we stay above the 200 week exponential moving average, we most likely are going to continue to the upside. And it starts to be very comparable to the period that we witnessed in 2015 and 2016. In this case, we needed it, but we started to consolidate and start to trend up afterwards. It is very likely to this period to slowly but surely the price starts to crawl up. And then we are going to have a case of the upside in the markets overall. And to watch this video analysis, the analyst did check the show notes below the video in the description. It's entitled Bitcoin price. I am looking to buy. So there you have it. And let me know if you agree or disagree with the analysts and are you currently bullish on the King crypto or do you think we're going to dip and test the lower levels? Let me know your honest thoughts, fam. And now let's break down our next story of the day. And the Winklevoss twins on the spot, Bitcoin ETF continuously being basically denied and kicked back and pushed back for the past decade. And then we're going to dive into their half a million dollar Bitcoin price prediction and why they're so confident that the Bitcoin price is going to hit their big target. So here we go. Let's discuss them with the SEC first. This was a story which was, let's see when their tweet was actually, let's scroll down. This is Cameron Winklevoss. This was actually on July 1st, it got 1 .1 million views. Now let me read the tweet. Today marks 10 years since Tyler and I filed for the first spot Bitcoin ETF. That's right. Over a decade ago, the SEC governor's refusal to approve these products for a decade has been a complete and utter disaster for US investors and demonstrates how the SEC is a failed regulator. Here's why. They protected investors from the best performing asset of the last decade. They pushed investors into toxic products like the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, GBTC, which trades at a massive discount to NAV and charges astronomical fees. They pushed spot Bitcoin activity offshore to unlicensed and unregulated venues. They pushed investors into the arms of FTX, subjecting them to one of the largest financial frauds in modern history. Preach. Maybe the SEC will reflect on its dismal record and instead of overstepping a statutory power and trying to act like a gatekeeper of economic life, it'll focus on fulfilling its mandate of investor protection, fostering fair and orderly markets and facilitating capital formation. This would have led to much better outcomes for US investors. Preach. In the meantime, best of luck to all those fighting the good fight to bring the US spot Bitcoin ETFs to life onwards. So much respect. I mean, 10 years of denying this ETF. I mean, you can't make this stuff up. I think they shared perfectly some of the reasoning. It's to hurt the investors and keep you poor and keep you wrecked and keep you desolate and dependent upon a broken government that threw us overboard so frickin long ago. So much respect to the Winklevoss twins. If you didn't know, they're the owners of the Gemini exchange and they were the very first ever to submit the spot Bitcoin ETF app to the SEC over a decade ago. And obviously they're sick and tired of Gary Gensler, his no clarity and his shenanigans. Just like the rest of us, it's time to fire Gensler. If you think Gensler should be investigated and potentially fired, let me know in the comments right down below and I'll be reading your comments out loud here in a little bit. Now for our breaking story of the day, let's discuss the Winklevoss twins and their case for a $500 ,000 Bitcoin price, which they believe is coming soon. So let's break this down, shall we? And welcome to y 'all just joining us in the live chat. Much love and much respect. So here we go. Winklevoss twins' prediction, Bitcoin will soon hit $500 ,000 per coin. And why? And again, shout out to Tyler and Cameron. Let's get, we already know their background, early Bitcoin investors, OGs, early investors as well with Facebook. Some claim that they're the real creators of Facebook and Zuckerberg stole it. But nonetheless, in a recent interview with the National News, the twins explained they remain convinced of the future of crypto. The main reason is the revolutionary and technical properties as well as the potential of Bitcoin to act as a store of value similar to gold. And in addition, crypto has many other advantages, mainly through programmability. Hence, the Winklevoss brothers believe that Bitcoin could even replace the precious metal. In the long term, Tyler Winklevoss shared the following. If you look at the properties that make gold valuable, Bitcoin matches each attribute or does better. The gold disruption story of Bitcoin is super powerful. We believe in it. Tyler Winklevoss explained his reasoning for the $500 ,000 Bitcoin price action, quitting him here. If you do the math, 21 million in the supply of Bitcoin, the market cap of gold, let's say it's 10 trillion, maybe it's 11 trillion, somewhere in that ballpark, that puts one Bitcoin if it disrupts gold and gets that market cap at $500 ,000 per coin. The two brothers did not want to give specific investment tips. However, Cameron reveals the strategy that they use, which is generally the simplest, which is simply HODL. Hold on for dear life, quitting him here. Generally speaking, if you subscribe to Bitcoin being a store of value type investment, then that strategy is HODL. The same way you would HODL gold is you buy and HODL long term investments. So according to the Winklevoss twins predicting the Bitcoin price will hit $500 ,000, they say predictions are difficult, but they believe that Bitcoin will hit the milestone within a decade. And when they were more recently interviewed and asked, where do you see Bitcoin in five years time? Here's what Cameron Winklevoss responded. We usually take a decade view on it. When we wrote a piece on the value that predicted it being $500 ,000 Bitcoin, we said within the decade. And I believe they wrote that in 2020. So they're basically saying by the year 2030, they're anticipating a $500 ,000 plus Bitcoin price with Bitcoin overtaking that of gold as far as the market cap. Now is that in three years from now or nine years? The timing part is hard, but I think the Bitcoin created $1 trillion worth of value in under a decade. That is fact. I believe back in November of 2021, Bitcoin's market cap surpassed a trillion dollar milestone and the total crypto market cap surpassed $3 trillion. But as of today, we're closer to a $500 billion Bitcoin market cap with the entire crypto market cap down to a trillion. Now, it also spawned many huge productions such as Ethereum and the entire asset class. He continues. If you look at the value increases in Bitcoin, it is this punctuated equilibrium where it is steady, steady, steady, and then boom, it reaches a new price level. This is the new normal. So it can happen very quickly. So there you have it, fam. Ultimately saying when Bitcoin takes off, it explodes quick and vast. And especially considering that two of the most bullish catalysts in Bitcoin history were on the cusp of. Six months away from a Bitcoin halving, we all know the Bitcoin cycles every four years, it drives the Bitcoin price up as it increases the scarcity as well as increase demand, basic stock to flow, numbers must go up. And we also have the approval of a Bitcoin ETF likely to take place in 2024, especially with Congress on Gensler's. But we also have the ETF experts such as Eric Balchunes given a 95 % chance probability that a spot Bitcoin ETF likely get approved in 2024. Those two catalysts will absolutely make Bitcoin rip to new all time highs entering price discovery mode like we have never seen before. So how high do you think the Bitcoin price will likely climb by the time of this next halving? Roughly six months out, scheduled to take place sometime in April of next year.

Good morning to all of you Cafe Bitcoiners. Good morning, Don Bay. Morning, Peter. Morning, Terrence. Welcome back, Tomer Strohle. How are you? Morning to Jacob. Hey, good morning. Took me a second to get the mic off, slow reflexes, got to exercise and back up. What did I miss? I really tried to tune out for like a solid 12 days. Absolutely nothing, Tomer. The price didn't change. And I guess no ETFs were approved and no charges were laid against anybody. And so it's just picked a good two week window to take a vacation, I suppose. Yeah, it's been much sideways crabbing. And, you know, everything that goes along with sideways crabbing. So I've been actually trying to tune out too. Like when I'm not doing the show, I try not to look at Twitter at all. So like my Twitter time is basically doing Cafe Bitcoin now. Well, and like prior to. Prior to Cafe Bitcoin, we also do show prep, which kind of gets me caught up, I hope, a little bit. Yeah, I wish there was an easier way to curate Twitter from all the truly psychotic stuff that's on it, because when I was away, I noticed myself relaxing. And then you come back to Twitter and every tweet seems to be. Some deeply concerning insinuation about something or other. So it just it's really it's really tough to take the constant barrage of the Twitter zeitgeist, which is it may be accurate in many regards, but it's also very impactful on your mental health. Yeah, your mental, spiritual health, emotional health, all that stuff. I wonder, like how much of it is actually encouraged, exacerbated, incentivized by the algorithms and social media? Like if you go and you watch certain interviews with like Ph .D. behavioral scientists who have done interviews with like one of the one I'm thinking of was. I think it was the chief engineer of Facebook who designed the algorithm and they literally said that we tune this thing to show people things that are going to make them upset. And the reason why is this has the highest level of stickiness, meaning like it gets the eyeballs looking at it, it gets people staying on, it holds people's attention. And we're living in the attention economy. Whoever is able to keep people's attention longest wins, so to speak. And it's essentially like constantly feeding people really dysfunctional stuff. It's like Jerry Springer 24 -7. Yeah, there's a couple of really good TED talks about this. And it's interesting now that AI is in the zeitgeist, everybody is focusing on AI, but AI algorithms, not ones that were writing perfectly grammatically correct English text for you or drawing images, but selecting what content to put in front of you have been around for a long time. And this is like the YouTube algorithm, the Facebook algorithm and the Twitter algorithm. And what's interesting about these TED talks that discuss this issue is they point out how you simply optimize for engagement. You tell the AI algorithm, learn what maximizes engagement and put that in front of people to continue to maximize engagement. The AI has no actual understanding of what content is in there, but what emerges is it is exactly, as you said, content that is radicalizing, emotionally aggravating, terrifying. If you're in terror, you keep coming back to the thing to see, is my terror justified? Has the next domino fallen in this disaster scenario that I'm coming? If everything's hunky dory, you don't have to go back and check. But if you're constantly in a state of fear, you are. And that's what ends up being game theoretically or algorithmically what these things put in front of people. So there's one really good scientist who says, you know, if you start to look at vegetarian dishes, it will turn you into a radical vegan by doing these things. Or if you start to look at meat dishes, it'll turn you into a radical carnivore. But it'll just continue to radicalize the content by finding something that's more extreme until it gets to the most extreme thing that it can to keep you on there. And I think that, and again, the AI algorithm isn't conscious. It doesn't know what's going on. It just knows what works and what works happens to be the stuff that is filling and fueling you with terror. And I don't think that there's a solution for that right now. The best solution is some solution that where your attention isn't the business model of the of the entity you're interacting with because you're dealing with something that has artificial and no sense of morality and no sense of understanding even what it means to suffer as a human being to be a human being. So it just does its thing. It's just a machine that does its thing. And the second that you engage with it, you're participating in something that doesn't understand anything about you other than it understands its world, that it's trying to maximize its engagement with these entities on the other end of it. Yeah, and I think we need to ask the question, like, what are the second and third order effects on human culture from this? Like, if you think about it, people are constantly staring at their phones like they're just sucked into them and they're being essentially programmed all day every day. The question is, with what? And, you know, you're starting to see this shift in the in the culture. Like I call, you know, I've talked about this kind of stuff a lot, probably to the point where many people are tired of me talking about it maybe. But like cluster B personality disorder type stuff is it's becoming super common. The behaviors are starting to become super common. Like you at least that's what you see all the time on social media. Like how many people are actually out there that are like this? I don't know what the percentage of the population is, but it seems like that's all you see on social media anymore is these cluster B disordered behaviors. And it's it's really mind blowing. And I wonder, can you take a normal person and expose them to those behaviors? Because that's what's getting the engagement. That's what they're being fed. That's what they're being programmed with. You take a normal person, expose them to those behaviors continuously over and over and over again. Will it turn somebody into somebody who behaves like that? I don't know, man. It's pretty freaky thing to me. And it concerns me a lot because you're starting to see the rise of this.
A highlight from MARKETS DAILY: Crypto Update | SEC Chair Faces Harsh Questions as Ether Spot ETF Proposals Hit Delays
"This episode of Markets Daily is sponsored by Kraken. It's Thursday, September 28th, 2023, and this is Markets Daily from CoinDesk. My name is Noelle Acheson, CoinDesk collaborator and author of the Crypto's Macro Noun newsletter on Substack. On today's show, we're talking about Ether ETFs, SEC confusion, and more. So you don't miss an episode. Be sure to follow the podcast on your platform of choice. And just a reminder, CoinDesk is a news source and does not provide investment advice. Now, a markets roundup. Well, Bitcoin has been busy over the past 24 hours. After that nice run -up yesterday that I thought was a sign of strong investor support, the Bitcoin price rapidly fell back down again. It has been climbing since, however. At 10 a .m. Eastern time, it was more or less flat, trading at $26 ,532. Depending on what happens over the next couple of days, Bitcoin could break the trend of negative performance in September. The ninth month is typically a weak one for crypto's leading asset, delivering negative returns over the past six Septembers. Bitcoin's average performance for the month is almost negative 5%. As of this morning, however, the asset price is up more than 2 % month to date. That kind of a break in the trend would be welcome news. In Ether, interesting things are happening. Like Bitcoin, it climbed yesterday and then fell back, only to start climbing again, but with a more consistent slope, suggesting a steadier over the past 24 hours. Relative to Bitcoin, Ether has notably outperformed over the past week, climbing two tenths of a percent versus Bitcoin's drop of 2 .3%. This could be due to the likely listing next week of the first Ether futures ETFs, which could boost demand and market volume. I'll talk more about this in a moment. In traditional markets, US stocks closed more less flat yesterday, rising in the second half to recover early losses. Over the past 10 days, the S &P 500 is down more than 4 .3%, the steepest 10 -day drop since March. You may remember that March was banking stress month. Investors are rattled by the surge in 10 -year Treasury yields, which yesterday rose above 4 .6 % for the first time since October 2007. The rising rates are investors for three main reasons. One, there's the patterns last seen just before the great financial crisis of 2007 -2008. Two, there's also the impact on company earnings. An article in the Financial Times this morning pointed out that interest expenses for the S &P 600 small cap index hit a record high in the latest batch of second quarter earnings. And 30 % of companies in the S &P 500 are now trading at a higher rate. Reason three, there's the message the market is sending. This is that it expects rates to remain higher for longer. This is likely to keep the dollar strong and inflict more pain on global markets. In Europe, stock indices have been taking a breather from their recent drops, with most showing moderate gains so far today. Over the past month, however, the Euro Stoxx 50, which tracks Eurozone blue chips, is down over 4 .3%. An index of Eurozone economic sentiment released this morning showed a fifth consecutive monthly drop in September. Inflation expectations rose. In commodities, oil prices continued their climb in the face of fears of supply shortages. The Brent crude benchmark rose above $96 per barrel for the first time this year this morning and is now almost 6 .5 % above its level a year ago. However, the market is signalling that this could abate soon. The prices of futures contracts six months out is lower. This suggests a scramble for spot delivery. In other words, oil now and not later. This has been most likely triggered by reports of reserve drawdowns in the US and the need in many areas to build up stocks as winter approaches. Moving over to gold, after a brief attempt at a recovery earlier today, gold slumped back to its support at $1 ,874 per ounce. Like Bitcoin, gold is holding up surprisingly well given the strength of the dollar and of real yields, which are yields adjusted for inflation. Gold normally moves inversely to real yields. When these are high, gold is less attractive as it doesn't produce an income. As measured by the 10 -year Treasury inflation -protected securities, real yields are at their highest since 2009. The last time they were at these levels, gold was roughly half the price it is today. One key macro data point to watch out for is the US Personal Consumption Expenditures Index, or the PCE. This is the Federal Reserve's preferred inflation gauge as it measures goods and services bought by all US households and non -profits, while the CPI only measures purchases by urban households. Tomorrow morning Eastern Time, we get the latest data for August expected to show an uptick. This will largely be due to higher energy prices. Stripping out higher energy and food prices gives us the core PCE index growth, which is what the Fed focuses on. This is forecast to show a continued downtrend. Remember, though, that August's core CPI grew by slightly more month -on -month than expected, so there may be a negative surprise tomorrow as well. This will be relevant for interest rate expectations. Stubborn inflation means that rates will remain, and you've heard this before, higher for longer. Stay tuned, after the break we'll take a look at more SEC frustration and at the likely listing of Ether futures ETFs.

SBF TRIAL: 09/28 UPDATE
"Welcome to The SBF Trial, a Coindesk Podcast Network newsletter bringing you daily insights from inside the courtroom where Sam Bankman -Fried will try to stay out of prison. Follow the Coindesk Podcast Network to get the audio each morning with content from the Coindesk regulation team and voiced by Wondercraft AI. After multiple consecutive setbacks for the former FTX CEO and his defense team, Judge Lewis Kaplan seemed to have been in a slightly more generous mood yesterday. The once celebrated crypto mogul will be able to use an air -gapped laptop to take notes while in court during the entirety of his trial which starts October 3rd in New York City, the judge said in a ruling. We will spare you the Google search for what that means. Since the laptop is air -gapped, Bankman -Fried will have no connection to the internet or local area networks. The computer is physically isolated from unsecured networks which also means that data can only be uploaded through the computer via USB and the like. In other words, Bankman -Fried will have no way of messaging with reporters or attempting to contact witnesses. All he is able to do is take notes. Judge Kaplan also ruled that Bankman -Fried can wear suits in the courthouse as opposed to his prison uniform which he had worn to some court hearings since being remanded into custody in August. This may help with potential bias from jurors who might unconsciously perceive the FTX founder as an already convicted criminal just by his look if he wore the beige prison garb. Even though this week marked three wins for Bankman -Fried's team, Judge Kaplan on Tuesday said he will let Bankman -Fried's lawyers ask some of the Department of Justice's witnesses about their recreational drug use and other questions tied to their running of FTX and Alameda Research. These motions seem to be a lot less significant than some of the requests that the defense team had filed that had been denied. Bankman -Fried's lawyers, for example, are still fighting to release the FTX founder for the duration of his trial to ensure fairness. Judge Kaplan had previously denied the defense's motion to release him ahead of his trial. The prosecution late on Wednesday afternoon opposed the latest motion, saying that it largely recycles the defendant's generalized claims regarding the manner in which he would like to assist his counsel in his defense, it said in a filing. There will be a hearing at 10 a .m. Eastern time today on the motion. Want to follow along? Sign up for Coindesk's new daily newsletter, The SBF Trial, bringing you insights from the courthouse and around the case.

A highlight from How To Turn Your STRESS Into SUCCESS! (Part 2)
"Welcome to Real Estate Coaching Radio, starring award -winning real estate coaches and number one international bestselling authors, Tim and Julie Harris. This is the number one daily radio show for realtors looking for a no BS, authentic, real time coaching experience. What's really working in today's market, how to generate more leads, make more money and have more time for what you love in your life. And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. Welcome back. This is day two. We're talking about how to turn your stress into success. And as you've learned, hopefully from yesterday, a lot of this has to do with your making the decision to actually get in control of all the head junk that's floating around in your head. If you didn't listen to yesterday's podcast, please do go back and listen to the podcast again, especially with regards to the brain dump. Indeed. That's such a great technique. You guys should all do it virtually every day. You're going to feel a lot better. So we're going to start with point number five because we did one through four yesterday. What to keep and what to let go of when you're getting back into control, how to turn your stress into success. Let me relabel this one and then we can read specifics. So one of the things again that we've been advocates of for decades are, it's called basically having media free life. And you can start out by having a media free morning, but really at the end of the day, you should do everything in your power to purge from your mind anything that's going to have an adversarial influence on your mindset. And a lot of that's going to come from the things that you choose to passively allow into your head. Now, it's interesting. When Julie and I originally started talking about having a media free life, let alone media free morning, people would take offense to it because they thought it was almost like their, I don't even know what their obligation to watch the news kind of like they had to watch it every day. It was almost like brushing their teeth. And people really would struggle with the idea of not ever consuming any media. But now I don't think people feel like that because I think what's happened over the last really maybe 36 to 48 months is people have realized almost all of the media is designed to essentially cause a reaction within your lizard brain that is going to not necessarily be putting you in a mental emotional state that you want to be in. And really it's I think at this point proven that a lot of them, especially mainstream media, it doesn't matter if you're blue or if you're red, it does not matter. A lot of it really is just propagandized garbage. So talking people into being media free now is a lot easier than it used to be. Now what's replaced it though is a lot of you guys are spending way too much time on social. So being media free, if you're just taking what you're picking up from cable news before and now you're filling your mind with all these really off the hinge websites and things like that, you've actually put yourself in a worse position. So one of the, again, things that you all should be considering doing is having completely media free lives. Literally purge all forms of media except for this podcast from your life. Well podcasts actually are I think very good because you can prune the content and of course obviously you can slide off one side or the other and you know, but you can curate what you're putting into your brain far easier than just turning the TV on and just, you know, being passive and you know, zoning out for whatever it's going to feed to you. And I think that it's, you know, I am with you on the media free a hundred percent, but knowing that they're going to naturally be on it now and then, you know, that brings us to this point of what should you, you know, to, to a large extent, take a break, go media free. You're going to feel a lot more peaceful because it has gotten to be very aggressive and contentious. Well, what a lot of people will realize is when you do go media free and you should just test this just for the sake of your own, I think, you know, intellect, go media free just in the morning or just in the afternoon, like afternoon today. Don't listen to any, you know, don't input anything that's going to cause you to feel a certain way that you're not in control of. And by the way, that is a really good, I think, introspective technique you can all use as whether or not something's good for you or bad for you, frankly, after you've listened to something or you've read something or just even talked to somebody, monitor how you feel. How do you feel inside? Do you feel happy, jubilant? Do you feel optimistic, excited? Do you feel, you know, love? Do you feel friendship or do you feel fear? Do you feel loathing? Do you feel defeat? Do you feel like monitor how you're feeling? What is the dominant emotions that you have after listening to today's podcast? What are the dominant emotions you have after listening to CNN or Fox News or whatever it is, right? And notice that what, for the most part, you feel when you're consuming media, especially if stuff's not good for you, you feel like the world is against you. You feel like there's a, you know, there's us and then there's them. You feel tribal. You feel maybe even superior, oh, you know, I listen to CNN so we think this way versus all those other people think that way and of course it's true on the other side as well. So just monitor how those things have psychologically evolved to manipulate you and the result of the manipulation is you frankly lose control of your mindset but your world gets smaller and smaller and smaller because eventually what's going to happen is you're only going to feel comfortable around other people that think and feel exactly like you do and at that point you're just living under a bridge. Well, you've got to make room in your brain for the good stuff, right? And so when you go, you know, you've listened to, you've watched whatever, something and it does make you feel yucky, guess what? You have control. Delete that app. Don't go back to it. If you, if you're watching like your news apps or whatever and you feel really horrible after reading something, sometimes it's not even that it was bad, it was just wasting your time. It was about nothing. I know. Right. So, so that's ultimately just monitor how you feel and then notice that when you go media free in the morning, for example, you know, I would like you guys to completely jump off the deep end and go media free period, but you will notice that you will go through forms withdrawal. of And I mean that in the literal sense. Now fortunately it's easy to get easier to get off media than it is, you know, getting off caffeine or something, you know, especially for somebody like me, not that we'd know because we're never going to try. I mean, why would someone get off caffeine? That makes no sense. That's like getting off oxygen. I know. Anyway, so wrong. Yeah. So anyway, when you go media free, what you're going to feel is you'll actually feel honest to God feelings of withdrawal and it manifests as a sense of lack of control. Oh my gosh, what is something going to happen? I'm going to miss out on the news. I'm not going to know what's going on. You actually start to feel this sort of literal feelings of withdrawal that comes from you're not getting that constant dopamine hit from really knowing the latest, greatest of everything is going on. All the news crawls and all the, you know, breaking news and all that stuff, it's all designed to trigger a little emotional response in your head. Somewhat like frankly, a lot of other things that people consume online, porn has that same effect. It releases a tiny little hit of dopamine and it causes you to feel a certain way for it. You get a little bit of a high from it. That's all that crap is. It's all designed to essentially start. Now you get, Oh, I want more of that feeling. So now I'm going to go and watch Fox news. I'm going to go to this website that's going to tell me that, you know, the human eating aliens are about to land, whatever it is, doom scrolling, doom scrolling, right? That is what people do. And you got to break free of that because you can't break free of that, or you can't be free of that until you break free of that. And when you do nature, it hoards a vacuum. In other words, once you are purging that stuff from your life, you will all of a sudden after you go through the withdrawal, it is real. I promise you after you go through the withdrawal, then all of a sudden you're going to start to feel lighthearted. You're going to, you're going to stop feeling divisive towards other people. You're not going to start seeing us in them. You're not going to, you're going to start feeling completely different. You're going to go back to your baseline, which for most of you are really good, nice, honest, loving, you know, people, not what the media wants us to all feel like. And look, look at the constant battle that seems to be happening socially right now in the United States and other places in the world as well. Don't you think the media, I don't think they created it. I don't. I think what they're doing is just parroting back to people what they're clicking on. Oh, they clicked on the fact that there's this, you know, horrible locust invasion that's happening in the Midwest or whatever. Well, people must want to read about horrible locusts with their big, you know, beady red eyes. Boom. You're seeing nothing. Let's give them more of that. Exactly. So the media is not, you know, creating the horrible red locusts. The locusts are there, but they're seeing that people want to read or see more information on that. Thus, that's what they're feeding you more of. People don't click on or read positive news. That's the reason. You try to find, try to find a story today anywhere that's going to be positive. And the reason that the media doesn't produce, and even, you know, amateur media people, they don't do positive because people don't click on it, because people don't view it, because people don't consume it. Why? Because you don't get that little dopamine hit. You only get it when you get the fear -based thing gets triggered in your head that comes from the bad news. So don't be surprised when you choose to go media -free, that you go through withdrawal. Don't be surprised after you've gone through that, maybe a week, maybe two weeks, that you're feeling this incredible feeling of relief, because that is how you'll feel if you give yourself the opportunity to get there. And then, what do you fill that? You fill that with the proactive lead generation and the other things that you should be doing to make yourself better, to improve the lives of your family and your loved ones, and obviously, to make a contribution to the people who choose to use you as a real estate professional. So that brings us to point number six, lead with proactive lead generation. You might be wondering, now that you've broken up with the media, what are you going to do with all of your time, right? So lead with proactive lead generation every day. You are either self -employed or self -unemployed based on the actions that you take. The things that agents avoid the most are the same things that are the most efficient and the most profitable. Proactive lead generation is your number one job, because without it, nothing else happens. You'll have leads to follow up on, no presentations, no deals to negotiate, and no closings. So remember that the answer to all stress in real estate is, take a new listing. Do it immediately. Your financial, emotional, and spiritual well -being all depend on this when you are earning your living in this business. All good things come from listings. And I can tell you, coaching call after coaching call, where today's call, the agent was kind of in this zone, stressed and maybe a little disorganized, feeling out of control. And guess what happens? In the next couple of days, they take a new listing. Next coaching call, it's like you're talking to a different human. Well, people need three things, right? People need someone to love, something to look forward to, and something to do that gives your life a sense of purpose. Those are the three fundamental things that it takes to have a happy, balanced life. I'll be even using the word balanced with air quotes. Someone to love, ideally they love you as well, right? Something to do that gives your life a sense of purpose, and something to look forward to. If you have those three things going on, and you can manifest all those things, it's not difficult. Discovering a sense of purpose, your sense of purpose is obviously your family and learning to be an amazing real estate practitioner. Something to look forward to, something to look forward to as a result of you helping other people through your real estate services and the money that you have as a result. And obviously your family is going to benefit from that as well, or maybe it's your dog that's someone you love. Dogs are great too. You guys get it? Stop making it so complicated. Go back to the essentially core principles of really what real estate is all about. It's not complicated to be very successful in real estate. Doesn't require all these multi -level, billions -level step systems and all the rest of it. It just comes down to five core activities. Proactive lead generation, pre -qualifying, presenting, negotiating, and then obviously closing, and then lead follow -up, right? That's six, but you do those things at a high level, you will have unlimited, unending levels of success, not just in your business, but in your personal life. If you believe that becoming more successful in your business won't make other aspects of your life more successful as well, I need you to shed those thoughts, because here's an interesting little challenge that some of you might have. If you have got caught into the, and again, this is going back to the point number six with regards to the media, but if you've got caught into this sort of never -ending loop of negativity, and you have actually convinced yourself that tomorrow is not going to be better than today, you're actually going to lock in and ensure that tomorrow is not going to be better than today, because you're not going to do the things today that would actually make tomorrow better. What do I mean? Julie's last point. Proactive lead generation. Julie, why would I go and proactively lead generate? Why would I go and do this? Why would I go and do that if tomorrow is going to be the alien invasion? I'm trying to make you guys laugh, but I want you to realize the fragility of all of our mindsets, especially if we're allowing ourselves to be overwhelmed with negativity. When you purge the negativity, and all of a sudden you start replacing that time, energy, and sort of the mindset that's been wasted on the negativity, and you start doing the things that are actually going to ensure or lock in that tomorrow is going to be better than today, there's a compounding effect to it that is, I think it's a law of nature, basically. Probably. But it is all within your control. I think that's what it gets down to. So we're talking about the next point. This is a big black hole right now. Stop pursuing less than motivated or nonresponsive, with air quotes, leads. Let them go. If you've been doing a good job with your lead follow -up before you lost control of your schedule, remember we're talking about turning your stress into success here, and those leads just aren't responding, chances are they are not real leads anyway. Now let's demonstrate that. Real buyers are responsive. They call you as soon as they see the right house, or when you sent them the right house. They update you about their financing. They send you listings they've seen. Well we have a list of things that you guys should be using before you actually consider working with a buyer. It's all part of the buyer prequalification script. It's all part of the process. A buyer isn't just somebody that says, I want to buy a house. They actually have, before you give any of your life energy, which you do not get back, your time, which you do not get back, you have to make sure that they are prequalified. Julie gave you an overview. All of the scripts are going to give you answers to all the questions, and once all the questions are answered, then you'll know whether you have a buyer. Because the real challenge with buyers, guys, is they never actually have to buy. And if you're spending all of your time, to Julie's point, working with buyers, even buyers that are really motivated, oftentimes what will happen is they'll demotivate themselves because guess what? They just read something on the news that scares the crap out of them, and now they're deciding to take some time off from buying a house. Are they just ghosts, Jill? Or are they something, something, something? So there's no such thing as a buyer that has to transact. So when Julie and I lean into hoping you guys are going to learn to be listing agents, it's because there are lots of examples of sellers that absolutely positively have to sell. Now that said, real sellers are also responsive. How do you know? They're following, they're answering your questions from your prequalification script. They're responsive. They're easy to schedule a listing appointment with. They're cleaning. They're packing. They're staging their home. They're doing the things that sellers do. If your leads are not acting like real sellers, they're probably not ready to transact. Just say next. But not until you've actually used the seller prequalification script. Now here's the thing. This is an especially hard lesson for new or newer agents who haven't had the experience to know the difference between real buyers, real sellers. Whether you're new, newer, or experienced, using the buyer and seller prequal scripts will cure that issue. Brian Tracy said, your greatest asset is your earning ability, and your greatest resource is your time. So in order to know who you should be spending your time with, you have to ask those questions and actually get the answers. If they're not answering you, they're not calling you back. They're not acting like real buyers and real sellers do. But sellers are very easy. Sellers are way easier to know. Right, because a buyer's motivation to buy, a buyer can always stay put. They can always stay renting. They can always extend their lease. They can always do a room addition, all those types of things. But when a seller, when you're using a prequalification script, you'll know their time frame, you'll know their motivation, and so sellers have to sell. They have to sell because they are closing on another house and they need the equity out of their current one. They are getting relocated to another part of the country and they need to sell their existing house. They bought the house as a VRBO and now it's not cash flowing, they need to get rid of it for whatever reason, right? All these types of things. So they maybe have to sell the house because it's a probate listing or maybe it's a financial reason. Much more specific. And there are examples. So when does this house have to be sold by? With sellers, there's going to be a date if they're a truly motivated seller. The ones that, well, if pigs fly, you know, when pigs fly, then if I can get my price, okay, Mr. Seller, so if the home doesn't sell for the price that you're thinking about, what is your plan B? Well, we'll just take it off the market and we'll try again next year. Not motivated seller. Now you can still dig down and ask more questions and find out, well, so just so that I'm clear when this home sells, Mr. Seller, where are you going next? Oh, well, we already closed on the house in Florida and we're planning on moving there in 60 days. Okay, hold on. So you just gave me a bunch of wishy -washy motivation and now you're telling me you actually have a house you want to move to? And I mean, that's why you have the script though, because most agents, if they ask the first question, that's the only thing they ask, then they declare that that person is not that motivated. They haven't drilled down to the point to find out what's really going on with them. Same thing with price. You know, a lot of times sellers will say, well, if I don't get my price, what if their price is realistic? What if that's completely fine? You drill down more. And yes, they do have actual motivation. And don't find out the seller's motivation over time. I'll find out what the real motivation, some questions after I waste months with them. No, find out on the first contact or maybe the second contact, ask the prequalification prequalifying questions, and then find out what the heck is going on in their lives. Because here, I'll tell you guys a little secret, which anyone who's listed real estate before knows this. When you know the seller's timeframe, when you know what their actual motivation is, at that point, you basically have the answers to all the questions, right? If you know that they have to sell within the next 90 days, that's the only thing that truly matters, because they have to sell the house. You guys get it? Which means you have to take the listing. Which you have to take the listing, which is what we teach you how to do. So keep these things in mind. It does come down to that. Isn't that funny? But here, I'm going to do a little mindset check. See, I'm tricking you guys back into thinking about that. How do you feel right now? You probably feel excited because you're realizing, Julie and I are not asking you to do things that are very complicated. You're realizing that, hey, I can read a script. I can ask questions. Yes, it would actually greatly benefit you to do so. Yes, and you're now feeling optimistic, and you're feeling excited, and you're thinking you're going to go do these things. Yes, you are. You see, the form of media, the things that you allow in your mind and your heart and your soul really, truly do matter. Next point, Julie. Okay, our last point for today, we're talking about how to turn stress into success. What should you keep? What should you dump? Well, guess what? Number eight, your fitness and nutrition routine cannot suffer when you're busy. Change it instead of skipping it. If you can't find time in your normal work to do your normal workout at the gym, replace it with a Saturday morning workout or a nighttime yoga class or something where you're not just deleting. Don't delete. Just modify. You need your energy, and it's a great place to find new leads. It's also a great way to work off that stress. So bonus point. What are you going to do about this?

Fresh update on "last day" discussed on News, Traffic and Weather
"Your information station with Manda Factor and Brian Calvert sponsored by ApolloPlumbing .com. Frank Lindsey is our editor on this Thursday morning it's 546. Last night's Republican presidential debate went on without front -runner Donald Trump. Two of the seven candidates took shots at the former president. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said Trump was missing in action and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said Trump would rather hide behind his golf than clubs defend his record. President Biden calling on Republicans in the house to do their job and fund the government. Biden spoke with reporters in San Francisco yesterday and says he doesn't believe a shutdown is inevitable. National Security and law enforcement would be highly impacted by a shutdown. On the Northwest News line ABC News crime and terrorism analyst and former FBI agent Brad Garrett. Brad what happens when the federal coffers close down? News. There jobs are that are considered essential like components of the FBI, not private, a chunk of it. Border Patrol, TSA, and or military there's several others obviously are in order go to to work, but you're not going to get paid initially. You'll get back paid once the government reopens. So you start with that. But the big concern is what people don't see. Agents on duty, yes, of course. But will the support system around those so agents, in other words, surveillance teams, cybersecurity, crypto folks, some of them yes, maybe some of them no. But when you branch out from that and you go even to contractors at the FBI, at DOJ, DOD, et cetera, they may or may not be considered even though they're doing sensitive, important work and are maybe sort of the underpinning of making whatever they're doing work or function. It not may be at work. And so you can see how these systems will be more vulnerable to, you know, if you go right down to violent crime in your to eyes folks who want to do bad things to this country, Russia, Iran, and China, I mean, they'll look for vulnerabilities in things we're not keeping as well track of as we were in the past. And, you know, and even TSA, obviously, that would be essential. You know, will there be enough of them on duty? Will they call in sick because they can't? They've got to go find another job because they're not making enough money. That's going to slow down your ability to take off. It goes on and on. I could talk about the Border Patrol, et cetera. But it's a big deal that I don't think people really understand how big a deal it potentially is. Brad, we appreciate your insight this morning. ABC News crime and terrorism analyst and former FBI agent Brad Garrett on the Northwest News line. A groundbreaking marijuana bill has advanced in the Senate and the Senate Banking Committee yesterday gave their approval to the secure and fair enforcement regulation banking act. It allows legal marijuana businesses to use banks and financial institutions. Current law prohibits banks from providing services to the cannabis industry. And a California woman granted clemency by then President Trump is being indicted again. A judge previously sentenced Diana Cambaros Isabel to just over two years in federal prison for selling counterfeit five -hour energy drinks. President Former Trump wound up cutting her sentence in half on his last day in office back in 2021. Last week the San Diego U Attorney's .S. Office unsealed a new 11 -count indictment against Cambaros and her brother. Prosecutors allege they purchased products for cheap in Mexico that were manufactured and labeled for sale there. Then made fake labeling for sale in the U .S. and sold the items across the border at a higher price. If convicted prosecutors would seek the forfeiture of several properties and sports cars. It's $5 .50. Time to get to our stockcharts .com money update. The UAW pledged to widen its strike on Friday barring significant progress in talks with Detroit bankers as the companies take steps to keep critical parts flowing to their dealerships. Parallel
A highlight from Ep383: Best Morning Habits Podcasters Should Practice - Ahna Fulmer
"Podcasting would be a good option. And interestingly, it combined a skill that I didn't realize I'd been honing, which was interviewing an interesting element of interviewing as well as podcasting. This goes into the next question, but what makes a successful one? And it is learning the art of asking better questions. Most hosts never achieved the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. Hey, podcaster. It's your host, Adam Adams. And we're with Ana Fomer today, who is a client and a friend and somebody that inspires me. And I think you'll also find yourself a little bit inspired at the end of the podcast. She's got a show, obviously, or else how could we help her? And it is called, I said it wrong earlier. I said, I don't know what I said, but it was not right. It's imperfectly empowered, imperfectly empowered. I love it. And you also are doing something new in your business. It's kind of recent and it's about waking up early and having a morning routine. I think I would like to hear a little bit about, and maybe the listener would, what's important about a morning routine and why did you pick those two things? Yeah, I think one of the first things that's important to clarify is that waking up early is not natural for about 50 % of the population. And I happen to be one of those 50%. And I was, it was about four or five years ago in 2018, I was a busy working mom. I had three kids. My youngest was one and I was a dual certified nurse practitioner working in emergency medicine at the time. I was also the assistant medical director for two stroke programs that I helped create from the ground up. On top of that, we were renovating houses. We were in our second fixer upper at that time. That was like a side hustle for my husband and I. And on top of that, I had just started a home DIY decor blog just for fun because I didn't have enough going on. But it was at that point that a lot of us reach as moms where I desperately needed time for me. I was sick of waking up every morning, rushed and feeling like I was starting stressed and behind before I even got going for the day. And so I decided I was going to start an early morning routine because it was the only time I could find quiet. So I hustled to make this happen. And I fought this news button for about two years and really reprogrammed my biology to fall in love with the early morning quiet. And I fell in love with it so much and realized how many other women desperately want the same thing. But when it's not natural, it's incredibly difficult. And there's no program out there teaching you how to become an early morning person ultimately. So as a health and fitness coach, I ended up leaving bedside medicine and my online presence as a blogger actually turned into a virtual health and fitness professional, which is really neat. Now I help people prevent disease instead of treat disease, which is exciting. But what happened is I realized there was this gap for many of us as women in the health and fitness space because we go hard for six weeks and we transform our life for six weeks. But it's sort of like a bandaid on a gaping wound because we haven't created a habit of life change. And not that that six weeks wasn't important, but what we need is we need another program to partner with those fitness and nutrition programs who are able to also teach people how to create a habit to help sustain and offload some of the stress during our day so that we can really focus on nutritional changes, which is a full -time job for any of you. Adam, you've certainly undergone a lot of health transformation. You know, I mean, tracking macros in and of itself is like a full -time job. So the bottom line is we are in the process of creating this premier virtual program for busy women to learn how to become an early morning riser, establish a routine they can sustain that starts with being not doing. We don't get up earlier to hustle harder and do more. We're trying to press pause and actually be still and renew our hearts and minds in the calm of the quiet. And then we get a time efficient, effective workout done before our kids wake up. So that is early morning habit. If that's not cool enough, we are also an adoption fundraising program. My passion is to help women really manifest the sense that you are worth investing in because you have the power to impact the world because you've been made in the image of God and that alone makes you enough finding your value, not in what you say or do, but in the God that created you and really tapping into that to manifest this idea that you have the power to change the world. The small choices that you make for yourself have a massive impact. So when women successfully complete the program on the app, my company gives them back a significant portion of the money they paid for the program to give forward to an enrolled and adopting mom. Who's raising funds through life song for orphans. We are also adopting. So this is another heartbeat of mine. So anyways, there's a lot going on behind the scenes over here, but early morning habit, we're ready to change women's lives and bring more children home to their forever families. I like it. I have a question on the 50%. You mentioned that there's about half of us who it's not natural for us to wake up early. It's not normal. It shouldn't be normal maybe for us to wake up early. It's not our in our body, but that we can fix it. Is that part's true, right? And you fixed it. I'm living proof of that. Yes. What I'm curious about is who is your 50 % that it's not natural for or is it anybody? It's absolutely anybody. And to be clear in early morning routine is beneficial, whether you are a man or a woman, it's just my avatar specifically for this program. We are really honing in on busy women. And what I have found is it tends to be moms who recognize the need for an early morning routine. And this would have been true of me as well. It wasn't until I had kids. I mean, we think we're busy before kids. And then you have kids and suddenly you realize your time is no longer your own. And so you have to create time. And as there's only 24 hours in a day for most of us women as moms that tends to be before our kids wake up, if we want to maintain our sanity, not to mention our health. So my perfect avatar for early morning habit is really busy women. And a familiar business adage is you are best positioned to serve the person you once were. And so for me, that is I think I'm quoting Rory Vaden. He might have been quoting somebody else I don't even know. But for me, that was the busy Christian mom who wanted to start her day grounded in the truth of God's word, and then wanted to pound out a workout. But I knew I needed to start being still because I was constantly surrounded by chaos and noise of society, my own family, the own expectations I put on myself. So busy Christian moms is the very hyper -targeted audience, but it's really, it's just busy women. Any busy woman benefits from this, whether you're an early morning riser by nature or not, to answer that part. Okay, perfect. I was going to ask again, but no, perfect. So in the two big parts are reading the scripture and getting a workout in. So I've got this friend, he wrote a book about early morning, Hal Elrod. He's got this thing called Savers, and I think that must be like six things to do in the morning. Why do you pick those two? And is there anything else that you might think of adding on to it? It's a great question. And it's an interesting dynamic that a man would create six things to do, and a woman is going to create two. And I'll tell you why I think that's an important thing to highlight is one of the issues we frequently face as women is simply that it's the to -do list. We are constantly exhausted by our to -do lists, and we also feel the pressure in our society, as well as from ourselves, to do more, to hustle harder, and ultimately to be more. We think that we need to prove ourselves and our home or outside of our homes in order to reach a standard of success, however we're defining that. Our family is well put together and our kids are thriving. Maybe that's our definition. Maybe it's financial. Maybe it's the professional goals. But the problem is we are constantly moving, and the reality is, scientifically speaking, socially speaking, all five elements of our health, there are ways to prove that one of the best things we can do ourselves is to actually be still, practice the art of being still. So when we teach our community how to start their day being, not doing, we are specifically honing in on three things. Truth, or God's word, prayer, some people might practice meditation, and then gratitude. And there is a scientifically proven concept called emotionally intelligent gratitude practice, and that is what we teach our community how to implement. Whether you are somebody who prays or doesn't, emotionally intelligent gratitude can change every single aspect of your health and ultimately your life. So between that and a workout, I want women to be able to create a habit they can sustain, and if you go much beyond two things in the morning, I'm already peaced out because I'm looking at my to -do list, and I need it simple and sustainable. I love the simply part. I have a question, emotionally intelligent gratitude. In 2018, it was December of 18, I was overstressed, overworked, trying to do too much, and wasn't making all the best choices, wasn't working out enough, and that's where the health journey that you mentioned earlier came, but it was more like a life journey. There was a lot that changed, not snapping at the kids as much. But it started with something called gratitude. Now I didn't have you in my corner at that time, so I didn't know what emotionally intelligent gratitude was. What I would do is, when I'd wake up, I would try to express some gratitude before I got out of bed. When I went to bed, I tried to close my eyes and express some gratitude before I slept, and almost any time that I got overstressed, things were just compounding on me, and I wasn't sure what to do, and I was thinking about how stressful it was. I was thinking about how bad it was. Then I would have to re -hone during the day a few times and just, I guess, talk about my many blessings, because all of us have so many blessings. We just got to think about them, like the relationship with our kids, the relationship with our sweetheart, the air that we have to breathe, the roof over our heads, etc. So I would, when it was hardest to feel gratitude in my busiest of times, I would also just take a moment to try to close my eyes or even open them and think about what I'm grateful for. It ended up making a humongous impact on who I am as a person, and I still try to do it. Not as much, to be honest. I wish I did. I should. I should definitely get back to doing it more often every morning, every night, and any time I'm stressed. But I don't know what emotionally intelligent gratitude would mean if I was even close to it or not. What would you say to a listener who heard that and doesn't know what it means? Yeah, so I should also clarify emotionally intelligent gratitude practice is a concept that I have created, so this is proprietary to my program, but why I have clarified something, and I've taken gratitude practice and, one, infused a lot more science into the actual practice, so there's more intention to it, but one of the concerns with gratitude practice that I see for a lot of us is that it starts to border on good vibes only, and anyone who's listened to my podcast knows I am not a fan of that concept. The good vibes only concept is detrimental because what it is subconsciously telling us to do is to keep hustling harder and ignoring the stress, ignoring the fact that we're an absolute mess, ignoring the fact that our family is not perfect, that we actually feel terrible, we're anxious, we're stressed, so good vibes only is almost this concept of just ignore the bad, we're only going to focus on the good, and that's not true for everyone practicing gratitude, but it is very, very easy to start to lean to that corner of gratitude as though it is simply only focusing on the good in our life because, if we're honest, we are terrified of acknowledging the fact that we're actually a hot mess. Clearly not the corner I stand in as my podcast is quite literally titled Imperfectly Empowered, I'm all about the concept of embracing the mess, so where we incorporate emotionally intelligent gratitude practice is that in the actual practice of gratitude, before we are even diving into the very specific things that we are grateful for, we are first improving our emotional intelligence. Intellectual intelligence, we're familiar with IQs. It is something that, for the most part, cannot be developed. You have a naturally given IQ. Obviously, circumstances can depress somebody's ability to fully live out or up to that IQ potential, but typically speaking, it does not change. Emotional intelligence is something that can be grown, developed, and worked on, and it has three components. It is number one, being able to identify emotions, and this is where something as simple as an emotions wheel comes in. If you have a kid who struggles with behavioral issues or emotions, I have one of those kids, these emotion wheels come into play because you see like the little happy, do you feel happy, do you feel sad, or there's like these wheels that I like that have all kinds of emotions described on them, which is really helpful because half the time we don't even know how to put the words to what we feel. You're like, I don't know, sad, or it might be more specific than that. So number one, emotional intelligence includes being able to identify what you're feeling, but number two is being able to communicate what you're feeling, which is an entirely different concept. So number one, being able to identify, number two, being able to then communicate that, which is called emotional literacy, and then number three, this is truly where gratitude comes into play, being able to convert uncomfortable emotions, the emotions that we try to suppress and ignore and push down, being able to embrace them, and then convert them into a positive or more comfortable experience. That is the most difficult part of emotional intelligence. But it is also where gratitude comes in. Because what it's saying is basically it's me sitting at the restaurant and feeling really frustrated because my kids have effectively turned the table into a playground.
"last day" Discussed on Mojo In The Morning
"Fm in toledo and one zero four point. Five sx in grand rapids. Only my kid could do this. The last day of school for luke and he got a detention and he has after you know his last day of school. He has like abbreviated days. There's like three or four abbreviated like finals. Days where they go in and they take like a final day and then they go home so they don't have to show up to school at the normal time they show up at like nine or something and then they get picked up like at eleven o'clock. Well the problem is with getting that detention was he got out of school at like eleven but then had to come back later in the day to serve as detention when all the school was over with the detention was going on. And i only bring this up This morning because i want to know are there any kids who have ever gotten a detention on the first or last day because we need to celebrate you guys so in honor of luke. I'm celebrating all of the detention kids. If your kids or you got a detention on the first or the last day those are the most important as i remember one kid got suspended and kicked out of school at our class picnic. Which was the last day of the year. The kid got kicked out. He said to us he goes yeah. I'm a huge trouble. I said what what happened. And i guess he did something at a class picnic. We had it at one of the metro parks and he. He later that evening called all of us to tell us guys. I'm really sorry. But i just got kicked out of Out of school like it's not even there's no school anymore like school's done is a i can't go back to school. He couldn't come back to school. That's ridiculous now wild in the last day. Well i think what he did. Was i think he lit a fire or something and he got expelled on the last days while we had to do all he had to do was get after one free day and it wasn't even a school day.

My dad would always use the that name. All the time she describe. This kid got suspended my final week but your son definitely beats with the final day but i was goofing around and clowning on career day and the problem is when you get suspended that late in the school year. You're missing out on all the fun stuff because there's no hardcore to do no wrong. I did a day one day. Short michael data number one day one in each year of high school we would have one of those assemblies or whatever where they would they would. K- this is what's going to happen this year blah blah blah and every year. I don't know why what got into me or what. I was bored. I have no idea. I would stand up our do something crazy. I'd make joker inappropriate joke and then right after assembly. Mike luckily reports the office where you trying to establish comedy dominance on the first day of school or like. Maybe everyone notices you i. Maybe that was really dive into it. Maybe that was. i mean. I'm not criticizing your class clown ism because that's what made us all end up here in this room together.

I really thought that. I would make the film very differently. Like i thought it was gonna be this observational film but then there was a point win. Rabo told me. I don't like to be filmed by myself. He said like he was to him walking away from the camera and he said no. I don't want to and they said oh really so. I turned off the camera. But i had a microphone on me and he said yeah you know i don't like being filmed alone when you guys are around me. It's fine but when it's just myself like he said. I feel really awkward because the neighbors will ask ray boyer they film you so he felt really embarrassed somehow and i said oh okay and it made me super nervous because it means oh my gosh like everything that i know of documentaries like people from afar so i thought how are we gonna do this and then i remember. I had a meeting with a crew. There were four of us then. And then i said okay really doesn't like to be filled by himself. What are we gonna do. We decided okay.

"Don't offend anybody. You're tolerant like the world. Whatever is is okay. Look i just want to be loving and kind. I just wanna care. I want my beer alcohol. I want my club. I want this. I want that. I want my football. I want and the devils blowing on you. And he's cooling your heart and if you don't recognize the devils breath he will win and you will totally lose out with jesus. Jesus wants you to be hot on fire alive not lukewarm. Not cold you want you to bear witness to him. We have come literally to the end of time. And we see in america every kind of wickedness is being promoted as being righteous not just by the world but by the church well by the episcopal church by the united methodist church by many other churches by the anglican church by the baptist church. I just read a news. Article in a baptist pastor who congratulated joe biden on again funding planned parenthood one of the most evil organizations that ever existed on the face of the earth and yet this pastor is complementing the president for restoring their funding. How is that possible. The devil's been blowing on that man soul and he's almost gone. There's almost no hope for him. I hope you hear what i'm saying. Today you have to decide. We are at literally the end of in this end daytime. What message must be preached. If there's going to be that last day revival was very clear if you come to romans the sixth chapter. This is the message. I'm going to be much more specific out of the book of revelation. But first let me just share. This begin reading with verse two. We died to sin. How can we live in it any longer. Or don't you know that. All of us who are baptized into christ were baptized into his death. We were there for buried him through baptism into death. In order that just as christ was raised from the dead to the glory of the father we to may live a new life. If we have been united with him like this in his death we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection. Gender stand there is a death. There is a taking up of your cross denying of yourself. Ah taking up your cross and following of jesus. We know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with that we should no longer be slaves to sin because anyone who has died has been freed from sin and yet the modern church teaches that you can never be freed from your sin until you die but paul says that your old self was crucified and this body of sin is done away with that. We should no longer be slaves to sin. The modern church. Says you're going to always be a slave to sin. That's the devils breath blowing on you comforting. You and your wickedness convincing you that. You're okay just keep going because anyone who has died has been freed from sin. That's present tense now. If you die with christ crucified with him you are then also resurrected with him. Currently now in a resurrected state and you've been freed from sin. No it it is important. It's vital that we claim that in the name of jesus and we stand by faith that we are utterly freed from our sin and we stopped condemning ourself and we stop calling ourselves centers and we stopped saying. Nobody can be perfect speaking. Those lies of the devil that he's been blowing upon our spirit from the pulpits of america. Instead we make new affirmation that i left my sin walking clean. I'm now walking in the power of the spirit. Remember the passage that i just shared with you out of acts i want to go back to it very quickly just so you can hear it. Repent turn to god that your sins may be wiped out that times of refreshing may come from the lord. We need those times of refreshing now and there will be a great outpouring of the holy spirit in refreshing power at the end of time. But what is that final message. That comes the final message of grace that comes from the heart of jesus for you. What is that message to. You know where it's found in the book of revelation. I grew up with this..

"Finney. And then as oozes street. The jesus movement in america times of refreshing refer to times of the holy spirit coming. He is the one who refreshes us. He is the one who brings to us the water of life that jesus promised we could drink of if we would come to him now in the sermon that he gave that peter gave at pentecost. He quoted the prophet joel in the last days. God says i will pour out my spirit on. All people lured the spirit of god is going to be poured out on everybody. Everyone will not respond. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions. You're old men will dream dreams either. My servants both men and women. I will pour out my spirit. In those days and they will prophesy wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below blood and fire and billows of smoke and the sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the lord and everyone who calls on the name of the lord will be saved. It was quoting from the book of joel so there will be a time of refreshing. That will come after the devil has blown on the church and cooled it down and certainly if you would ask today in the american church. Has it been blown on by the devils breath and you would have to answer yes. It is lukewarm. It is the church at layered assia. Now it's very clear. The church could not live this way. Jesus said i'm about to spit you out of my mouth. I'm about to vomit you out. You make me sick. He saying that to his church at the end of time because they have been chilled down by satan's gently blowing on them so that they don't even realize what's happening they just slowly slowly slowly. They watch television. If you watch the super bowl you were blown on by the breath of the devil and he series your mind and you'll have a hard time reading scripture. Now you'll have a hard time praying with any fervent city. The devil blows on us with the television. He blows on us with the sports events. He blows on us with clubs with novels pornography with every kind of perversion in wickedness. And the church just goes right along with. It doesn't seem to have a problem with it. So the church can accept every kind of deviancy. The church can accept. Every kind of wicked thing seems to be okay and people even argue against the word of god for the right to be tolerant of wickedness and to stop even calling it wickedness. But to say we're just being loving people. Jesus is not nearly as interested in us being loving people as he is in are being obedient people obedient to the word hell's going to be filled with lots of people who call themselves christians and even have a heart of love but they've been cool by the devils breath as he blew upon them and they enjoyed and participated in the darkness. Some of you love your alcohol and you say there's nothing wrong with it. Timothy was told by paul that he should have a little yes. He didn't say four or five glasses. It didn't say a bottle. Some of you are becoming alcoholics and as you become an alcoholic you slowly have been blown upon by the devils breath. You lose your irvine. See you become argumentative. You become hard to deal with. Your family doesn't know how to deal with you because if they say to. You explode in defensive anger. You're in trouble. Mr. you're in trouble. You guzzle your beer and you watch tv and the devils blowing on you. And he is causing you to have no interest in the deep things of the lord. Many of you will go for days without even cracking your bible but you say you do read your bible but in reality. You don't read your bible. You might pick up a devotional book once in a while and look at it. Why because the devil's been blowing on you and you have gotten very cold in your heart. You know you take a hot soup. Take the spoon and you who you blow on that spoon of soup and you put it in your mouth and it's nice. It's just perfect temperature. It's not hot doesn't burn you. It's called a lukewarm christian.

"A final great conclusion in the coming of jesus. Christ i believe that before the coming of jesus there will be a great falling away but there will also be a very straight preaching of a message that will bring revival. Many who are in the will find themselves leaving the church and many who are on the outside will come now. I have several passages of scripture. I could not say such a thing. If i did not turn to the word of god and give you very clear direction regarding this final message that will bring revival in the end of time and we are there now in matthew twenty four. Jesus begins to speak about what is going to happen at the very end of time. It's in response to questions that his disciples are asking. I'll begin in matthew. Twenty four burst nine. Then you will be handed over to be and put to death. You'll be hated by all nations because of me and at that time many will turn away from the faith and betray and hate each other and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Many false prophets have shown up and they have deceived. Many people burst twelve because of the increase of wickedness. The love of most will grow cold. That phrase in the in the greek grow cold means literally a verb to breathe gently to chill slowly. So what we've watched in my lifetime and the church is the world the devil blowing gently upon the church chilling. It and it has grown very chilly. This is what jesus said would happen. As we came to the end of time and then those who have been blown upon and have become very chilly they will blow out of the church or they will be revived as in the revelation. Three passage with live to see a where they will once more be ignited with a fire of the holy spirit verse. Fourteen and this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations and then the end will come. I want you to notice. At the end of matthew. There is what we have always traditionally referred to as the great commission. It reads like this in matthew. Twenty eight all authority in heaven on earth has been given to me therefore go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the father the son and the holy spirit and preach and teaching them to obey everything i have commanded you and surely i am with you always to the very end of the age. This gospel commission is different than this final matthew. Twenty four preaching of the gospel. This matthew twenty four passages in the face of the church that has grown chilled cold. Lukewarm and this gospel of the kingdom will be preached to the whole world as a testimony to all nations and then the end will come so you see there is a difference between this last and day proclamation and the gospel commission this n day does not have the emphasis on teaching everyone to obey everything that jesus has commanded instead. It is a testimony to all nations that the end has come now. There's another passage. We need to turn to to get a full understanding of what's being said here. And it's found in the book of acts in the book of acts in the story of peter. Healing the crippled man after the man is healed and everybody is listening. Peter preaches men of israel. Why does this surprise you. Why do you stare at us. As if by our own power or godliness. We'd made man walk the god. Of abraham isaac and jacob the god of our fathers has glorified his servant. Jesus this is what we're going to see at the end of time. We're going to hear a message. That will bring glory to the name of jesus christ as a testimony to the nation's now that message i'm going to share from the scripture. What that message is going to be an exact words. It may shock. you burst fourteen. This is acts three verse fourteen. You disowned the holy and righteous one. And ask that god and ask that a murder be released to you. You kill the author of life. But god raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this. By faith in the name of jesus this man whom you see and know was made strong it is jesus name and the faith that comes through him that has given complete healing to him as you can see. Now move with me. Bursts nineteen repent. Then turn to. God that is stretch your heart out to god so that your sins may be wiped out that times of refreshing may come from the lord so we've seen through all of history that when there was a time of earnest repentance. On the part of god's people when men and women began to turn to god and search after him to have their sins wiped out then times of refreshing or times of revival. The word revival is not found in the scriptures but these times of revival would come. I think of jonathan edwards and the first great awakening. I think of george whitfield jonathan and john wesley i think of charles.

They had an inscription to the unknown. God and paul and silas came in and they said we want to proclaim this. God that you don't know we want to tell you who he is so people you know they have the witness in themselves but we need to tell them and direct them to jesus who they're looking for because that when they knew god through the witness of creation they glorified him not as god. They didn't give way to what they were seeing. And as a result they weren't thankful but they became vain or empty in their magic nations and their foolish heart was darken. Go to go to the next verse professing themselves to be wise. They became morons. That's what the greek says. They became professing themselves to be wise. The greek word The last letter there should be o. M. o. r. a. That's my fault it means They became fools. It means there were made flat. They were made tasteless and of assault. That has lost its strength and flavor without an edge. They were made stupid or silly or to play the fool you. Let's go to another realm of stupid here already. A man or a woman okay.

And i want to get into that and i even want to cover matthew twenty four which is parallel to mark thirteen and luke. Twenty one probably from matthew's account and in mad these account it is true that the destruction there was judgment upon jerusalem. It is true you can't read it in context and not see it but there are characteristics from then that are directly parallel to when jesus physically returns. And i'm gonna cover that. These are things. I'm trying to cover. And like i said. I want to get into the mark of the beast and the mark of the beast will be different. Then you've probably ever heard and i've alluded to it before in the past but we don't get what the mark of the beast is.

Peter bubby loved so. Who's the beloved the believer right. Be not ignorant. Be ignorant of a lot of things but don't be ignorant of this one thing. I'm emphasizing that. Don't be ignorant of this one thing. Ignorance ignorant comes from ignore. Don't ignore this don't being ignorant is not stupid. Well my definition of stupidest willful ignorance. So i guess but ignorance. We're all in terms of certain things right amen. I always tell people everyone you meet knows things you don't know so if you're listening you can learn but so be beloved figure. This one thing watch this that one day say one day is with the lord. In god's is like a thousand years in our is wow and you know ninety where talks and one guy figured if you live to one hundred. That's about two and a half hours. In god's is think about that saying we think we're here for so long i mean think about it. Twenty thirty forty fifty years from now it's going to be vastly different than it is. Now we got a little bit of time. Are we in the last days. Well let me start off with this. I believe it's jack. Hey i said this. And i love it. I know it's the last days for me. And you because whether the lord physically returns are not in my lifetime we will go by the way the grave if he doesn't physically return so we really need to keep that in perspective. If we really believed that what we do matters as far as in the eternal picture we would change things a lot of us. I wouldn't be so selfish. I wouldn't be this. We're not saved by works. But there are rewards. Which is another lesson i want to get into. I heard these people. I know i know these people personally and i gave him a book on near death experiences. And it's it's called imagine heaven by john burke and that's really good book kind of a thick book but really good and i gave him this book and they said they had a nephew. I think it was that they lend some money to and they finally figured out they. They're not going to see this money. This person just took advantage of them.

"I'm just kidding. I added that last part just thought it was funny. Prophecy has speaking for the mind of god. But here's what i want you to see. I will pour out my spirit. This goes back to what joe prophesied. When did that happen. I hear people saying god's going to pour out of spirit gone already poured out of spirit on the day of pentecost. that's when god poured out of spirit. You hear people. They're praying for revival. Oh god gives us revival and then they got this idea that god's turned around he's ticked off and as soon as you pray hard enough okay. There's some revival taking it back. You made me mad. That's not at all revivals already here. We just need to have it. What what. I mean by that. Everything and jesus has done everything until the second coming of christ when we get a glorified body. We're we're here. i'm well. I'm getting ahead of myself. When did the last day start go to hebrews one versus one to. I don't want to get ahead of myself. And then why answer this question. And we'll get started getting into the characteristics. Hebrews chapter one. God who at sundry times that means various times in different ways and manners spec in time passed under the fathers by the prophets. Now stop does that mean. There's no such thing as new testament. Prophets know if he gave apostles prophets evangelists pastors and teachers. But there's a difference between an old testament prophet and a new testament. Prophet and under the old covenant. They weren't born again so god had to have people come to them and speak to them. Because they couldn't hear. God individually like you and i can now we have apostles prophets evangelists pastors and teachers in these are gifts from god to equip you and your relationship with god not to be your relationship with god. Can you hear the difference. We're not called to be anybody's relationship got an. That's the problem that people have. They think well man that church is supposed to be my relationship. No church supplementary relationship govett never substitute for it. And i tell people in titus two verse eleven and twelve it talks about the grace of god shall teach you to the niane godliness. Live soberly righteously and god in this present age the job of a new covenant minister. Pulpit minister is not to get people to live a certain way. It's to expose them to the true grace of god which will teach them. Amen see people. Don't get that. I told someone recently i said i got i can do to figure out my life let alone figure out. Why other people do what they do. A man and you know. I also find that that. When i'm always looking at how other people need to change and never see how i need to change.

"Significance here. You know they. I think it's john twenty one. They brought forth one hundred and fifty three fish. Why one hundred and fifty three. Those numbers are significant. I'm not gonna get too far into this. But i'm just gonna say this back to genesis when noah's ark after the flood after the judgment came upon the earth when noah's ark rested on mount arafat in genesis chapter eight erat means the curses reversed one hundred and fifty three. I believe john twenty one eleven somewhere around there. A hundred and fifty three. I think that's fascinating. Because that was on the seventeenth day the seventeenth day of the seventh month. And if you if you look at that and you study that and seventeen is is seventeen have been called the number of victory and times nine. Which is the number of the holy spirit nine gifts of the spirit nine fruit of the spirit seventeen times nine one hundred and fifty three. What a coincidence. None of that stuff is coincidence. I mean it all has significance so when he says in revelation thirteen eighteen here is wisdom. Here is wisdom let him that has understanding cow the number of the beast and it goes on for his numbers six hundred three score and six or six six six. Let's just start with her outline. Now we'll get to that. I wanted to say that this is the template for study. Are these last days. We talked about the characteristics of the last days and we will get to that when we get to second timothy chapter three where it says this no also that in the last days and the word there for last is the very last days. The last of the last days it's perilous times shall com. Dangerous time shall come. I was told recently since the whole stupid moronic defunding. The police thing took place that you can't even go in downtown seattle. Now it's so dangerous. I'm sorry. I had a little bit of anger bursts there because it's demonic garbage when i first heard de-fund the police. I thought it was a joke. I did. I thought this is a joke. There's somebody's somebody's making summa on facebook or something. You know what i mean but no it's real but that's that's because jeremiah ten twenty three says the way of man is not an himself. It is not in man that walks to direct his path. So the more society operates without god the dumber. It's going to get and you're gonna look and you think how can anybody think that. Because that's man without god i mean how can how can they come up with some of the things they come up with a you. Don't even know if.

"You should have this. I know it says december twentieth on it but It's actually january. The third right. Is that what we are third. This is part two of a message we started. Are we living in the last days. This is called this. This lesson is called the mark of the beast. And it's going to be. I guarantee it'll be different. Probably than what you've heard i've. I'll talk about the traditional view. But i think it's important that we understand this. I really believe it's important that we understand everything in scripture man. Before i get to the outline i just want you to look at revelation. Thirteen eighteen revelation chapter thirteen verse eighteen. A lot of people. Stay away from the book of revelation. Because it is symbolic and there's been a lot of fruity tutti stuff taught from the book of revelation. Because of that. But i'm here to tell you according to revelation chapter one verse one. It's the revelation of jesus christ and if you're born again that's a good news and if you're not born again it can be good news if you'll say yes to jesus amen. Sometimes we wanna put god in a box. Am i talking to anybody here. Would you agree with that. We put got a box. And and what. I mean but i was talking to jimmy bratcher and he's a blues guitar player christian man from kansas city missouri. And he's powerful. Real good friend of jim richards. That's how i kind of got to know him. And but i was talking to him and he was talking about how he got born again like years and years ago. He said he was at a place in him and his girlfriend at the time they were living wild. They weren't born again. They were doing all this stuff and he said you know then. They got back together and they decided they. I may not have the story perfect. This part getting ready to say i do. He said and they went to a place and the preacher said. Listen if you don't accept. Jesus christ i'm not marrying you. And so he goes. I did didn't even have any idea. He didn't even say this is what you're doing discipleship. He didn't say any of that he goes. I did it and get all these years later. He's in love with. Jesus so i'm thinking well that's not how you do it right but you know this is why guys anything we get. We need the ministry of the holy spirit even the truth. God's word the holy spirit guide you into the truth. The bible is the written truth..

"If there was fraud. I would think anybody would want that no matter what political party you are europe but this is what we're seeing. This is what happens. But it's the roughness in man's heart but notice. God has been declaring the end from the beginning. So the judgment that occurred on jerusalem and seventy ad is a picture pointing the day in which you and i live the same characteristics that were going on there are magnified in our time. Because we're at the end of the end of the age. I i've only lived in the end of the age. The last they started two thousand years ago. Do you know that. Over two thousand years ago. Because god says one day in his eyes is like a thousand years in man. So it's been a little over two days in god's eyes that's not very long i mean oh god views time a little bit different than we do amen. So god's been declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things that are not yet done saying my council chef stand and i will do my pleasure so god has been declaring the from the beginning. I believe matthew twenty four mark thirteen and luke. Twenty one are very simple. There definitely was a judgment that occurred upon the jews in jerusalem for rejecting the messiah in seventy ad. But that wasn't that wasn't the final end. Okay man like. I said the gentiles are the people that were non-jewish by natural. We got off then right. No go back to matthew. Twenty four verse. Five god's been declaring the end from the beginning for many shall come in my name. Saying i'm crisis showed us men many go to the next verse and you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars. Some people say well that's been going on forever. Yes gossiping declaring the end from the beginning there will always be wars among men because men need jesus amen jumbo james chapter four verse one and we'll come right back to matthew twenty four six how to work from whence wars and fighting's among you they come because it's god's will trying to teach us something no they come thank you they come come they not hands from your lust that warn your members. That's where they come from. People want their own way. This country wants its own way. That's where these things come from now. Back to matthew twenty four versus watch live and you shall hear of wars and rumors of war. See that you be not troubled. Whoa whoa could. We can't hear see that you be not troubled. That's why you gotta careful little ears what you hear this and we got to watch the fear consumption as i said earlier staying alert but do not be you. Want to be consumed be consumed with the word of god. And that's what. I was just reading in genesis. About how the even though there was excuse seeming genesis into exodus genesis the society and the fable was still favorable to the children of israel. But you get into. The book of exodus arose. Another president was elected. That was not doing godly..

"To solve one thousand nine hundred from the amplified verse one. This is reviewing new. The witness of creation the heavens declare the glory of god and the firmament the sky expand shows and proclaims his handiwork. I love sunrises and sunsets anybody else. Aren't they beautiful. But they testify of god. The glory of god. Now go to the next verse day. After day pours forth speech think about bat and night after night shows knowledge of what the glory of god the glory of god amen next verse. There is no speech nor spoken word from the stars. Their voice is that their voice or their voices heard. There is no speech where their voice is not heard from the stars. Now let me say this. I talked about this last week. The masire off what people call the zodiac. But it's in scripture. It's called the master in other words. The story of creation is written in the stars. You studied that out from virgo. The virgin virgin birth to leo the lion. Next verse yet. Their voice in evidence goes out through all the earth they're saying to the end of the world of the heavens have made a tent for the sun next verse which is a bridegroom coming out of his chamber and it rejoices as a strong to run his. Course it's going forth from the end of the heavens at circuit to the ends of it and nothing. Yes no one is hidden from the heat of it. That's why they've gotta pump a theory. That does away with god because the witness of god is all around us. it's everywhere even your body. I mean is an amazing creation. Did you know that your body's amazing though aaron's backer.
