Learning The Voice Of The Lord - burst 1

"Welcome to live behind the veil and atmosphere where men and women of God speak his word to this age and bring his kingdom to this earth. Do you have ears to hear and eyes to see what God is doing in this hour? Let us join our host and the family's conversation as the Holy Spirit is unfolding. The word behind the veil. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. Hello, everyone. I'm Ron, your host, and on this podcast will be focusing on learning the voice of the lord. We must wait before him and have our spiritual ears train to hear that still small voice. There's this thing called head knowledge. Where you can have a head knowledge of the scriptures and you can acknowledge in your mind and believe in your mind but have no experience. Yeah. Exactly. With the word at all, and it's crucial to have experiential knowledge with his word because that's what works at in your heart and in your spirit. Otherwise, you know, it's not real. It's not a lie. And so, you know, you ask the question, how are we able to hear the voice of the lord? The ear that hears is the ear of the servant. The love slave. The man who humbles himself before the lord. Those are the folks that actually hear what God has to say. And he says my sheep know my voice. You can tell it so obvious when somebody's speaking is that the lord speaking or is it just somebody talking? It's probably one of the hardest things to teach because it's an individual experience. You know, honestly, you get somebody that praise for you to have ears to hear. That really is where it comes from because none of us are here except that somebody prayed for us. Right. Jesus said that my sheep hear my voice and they follow me, a stranger they will not follow and is that there's something innate when you open up your heart and accept the lord. Yeah, that's an important key what you're saying Laurie because hearing the voice of the lord is based upon a relationship. Right. And you were talking earlier about head knowledge. Yeah, you can know that Bible from one end to the other. The whole bit, but unless you have a relationship with the scriptures, it's never going to mean anything to you. Right. I think one of the things that kicks off a true relationship is Salvation. Because he can yell at you all day long, but when you turn around and you say, I open my heart to your lord, that's the beginning of a relationship. And I think that's where the voice of the lord, as we learn it over our growing in that, that it starts with you speaking back because he's been speaking for a long time. You just weren't listening. Right. When you answer, here I am, lord. What Samuel say? Would Eli teach Samuel to do? Here am I. Here am I. That to me is a place of beginning. What I love is that the actually the voice of the lord can come and appear in many forms and in many applications. You know, I mean, the worst case you have is balaam, right? The donkey. We'll say the donkey talk with him. That was the voice of the lord. But your circumstances can talk to you as we are talking, you know, and the lord speaks through a vessel that's like, I know that voice. I don't care who's talking. I know that's the lord coming through. Here's the question, what are some safeguards? We are believing that like Jesus, we actually must hear from God. Right. There is a natural response of skepticism when someone says God spoke to me. Yeah. I love it. Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God. And that's first John or one. And some of the safeguards here are humility, authority, submission, witness, confirmation and covering. Regardless of how much God reveals to you, even if you could write a whole new Bible, you still must submit it to those who are over you in the lord. There has to be confirmation. Right. Right. And we're learning that we have confirmation with each other. That we can trust in each other if they're looking for it. Because some people don't don't try and look for it. They just, I just want to hear the voice of the lord. And then they run with it. They just go on from there and say, that's a voice of the lord. Without confirmation without anything. So yeah, you're right. There's a couple of other things about the voice of the lord. There is a couple of keys in the scriptures that help us fine tune our hearing God speak to us, Romans 8, verse one. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Right. If you're listening to somebody speaking, there's something just not right, and you, you feel a condemnation, that's not from the lord. The accuser of the brethren, a rat poison, 99 and 4400 percent pure, there again, you develop an ear for that. Yeah. God not going to come and accuse you of anything. He's going to come to you and he's going to say, come up higher. Yeah. He'll say, I've made a provision for you called grace. I'm going to teach you I chase in every son whom I received. And that is hugely positive. If you hear a voice telling you that a chastening is a bad thing, that's not God. Yeah. That's right. So you're saying it was a good thing because it's what God puts you through by his hand to make you a son. And God has been speaking to you. Since the dawn of your conception. All she wants to do is bring you into his family. Yeah. And listen carefully to what that voice says and Ron and I were talking about this the other day. I flat out asking misses Ron what voice is used when God speaks to you, and he says, my own, I laughed, I said, there's nothing wrong with that. God uses your voice to talk to you so you'll listen and understand. But that's true. Many times, as we are one on one with God, he's using your voice. What did Jesus do his entire ministry? He did what he saw the father do, and he spoke what he heard the father say. That is the revelation of the father. Where does the father speak? Samuel classic example, Samuel. Four times before he understood what he was supposed to do. And then you have people like Elijah, who lived in the presence of the lord, I am sure they communed quite a bit. You know if you're in his presence, at least you're listening. You may not have a lot of questions. Because in his presence, there's no nothing amiss, if you will, it's peaceful, it's really calm, it's wonderful, place to be. I recommend it. I really do. But we used to talk about practice the presence of the lord. Yes. If you hear the voice of the lord and your response, he will give you the confirmation or he will show you what he's doing. But when you hear what he's saying and you act upon it, what you're talking about earlier, Lori, it's that action upon his word that were Dale's talking about where he will talk to you again. You create that relationship, you build it up. By listening and acting upon what he speaks. Right. This is critical though, what you're saying. This waiting on God and tying it into learning his voice before you will understand on how to wait on him. I really believe that God may 1st put you through some very deep afflictions. And difficult dealings basically drives you into him. Yeah. Out of those deep dealings though, you get this motivation to seek his face and to hear what he has to say. So it's very critical, semantics work, your relationships, and having it confirmed and that's the only way to have a 100%, you know, you're on the right track with the lord. And hearing this and walking with him. One of the things that always struck me was it seemed like Christ spent a lot of time in prayer. There was a term that I've heard for a number of years now. And that's the prayer of listening. I really think that Christ spent a lot of time doing that. His prayer was a prayer of listening. I think that is, that's something that we develop in a relationship. Yes. We learned to be quiet, saddle our mind, take control of our spirit, end listen. Lord said be skill and know that I am God. Today we've heard that it is crucial that we have experiences with the lord in the scriptures and not just a bunch of head knowledge. This is the experiences with him as the word of God that opens up a deep relationship with him to truly hear his voice. The lord is speaking to each one of us, are we listening?

"Well, Greg, you know, and I know that the only answer to all of our ills, cultural, personal, is Jesus. Let's be blunt about it. And there's a lot of misunderstanding on that, but sometimes there's no way around it. That's the answer. Now, you've experienced that. Viscerally, changed your life. You've walked it out over the decades. I experienced it in a different way. Visually changed my life. How many people we know whose lives were totally transformed. And we know we're not perfect. We know we still have a long way to go. But you can not, once you've experienced that, you can't pretend that was nothing. It was an emotional thing. It wasn't. It's utterly transformative. And so, but the fact that your story and Kathy's story is going to be on film, I'm very excited about it. I'm amazed that Kelsey Grammer plays chuck Smith in this. And I know if Kelsey hadn't gotten the job, I know it would have gone to me, but I'm not bitter because I'll get other parts. You know what I'm talking about, man. I'm going to get on the course. But I'm right behind you, Kelsey. Seriously, it's so terrific. You know when I know because we've talked about this, we've shared about this. But to reach the culture with Jesus, to do it in film, to do it in these different ways. It's vital. And we also know that we need revival in America. We need Jesus in America. So I'm just I'm absolutely thrilled. So the film is coming out when February of next year. February of next year. Okay, well, in the meantime, people can read your books, Lennon Dillon, Alice, and Jesus. And the bahnhof for film is coming out next year. We just got real on how far I can't talk about it. I can't talk about it on the air. They might shoot me. But it's very exciting. So God is at work in this messed up culture. God is at work. It's just a joy to spend a few minutes with you, Greg Laurie. Congratulations on the book on the movie and give my love to Kathy. God bless you, my friend. Thank you so much for having me here. Caught out. Make like a little lamb and wham you're shorn. I tell you chum, it's time to come blow your horse. Make like a mister. So I'd like to know where uh oh. We just have a few minutes left album. We got a lot of stuff to get in here before we go. First of all, we can't talk about the Ron Howard film. You and I and Chris saw it last night. It's astonishing. I think probably this week Friday, I think I'm supposed to interview Ron Howard about it. So we can't talk about it. But astonishing stuff, it's called harrowing realistic astonishing filmmaking. 13 lives. At least say it's called 13 lives. We'll talk more about it next week, I think, or maybe on Friday. But yeah, 13 lives. Okay. So that's going to be a big deal interviewing Ron Howard. I also should mention speaking of interviewing big deals, we are taping the late night show. The talk show with Eric meta taxis in the studio downstairs here at TBN, August 3rd, fourth, 5th, and 8th. This is a huge deal. Let me say if you can't be there, would you do me a personal favor? Would you pray if you're praying person? Would you pray? Because this is a very big deal. We're taping four inaugural episodes. We have huge guests. We have George Hamilton, talk about a Hollywood legend. There's nobody he doesn't know. It's kind of like my friend pat Boone. I mean, it's just insane that this guy has been, I mean, he knows everyone from the 50s to the present. He has been everywhere. And I aspire to have a tan just like his. But he's going to be my guest. We've got Danny Bonaduce. I mean, if you're not impressed by that, trust me, I'm impressed enough for the both of us. I am out of my mind that I get to hang out with Danny from the partridge family. Some of you will get that. If you don't get it, just go with it. It's going to be nuts. Nuts. I am so excited about that. We have Vincent pastore of The Sopranos. We have the guy behind Rao's the restaurant. Some of you buy Rao's sauce. Well, there's this tiny restaurant up in Italian Harlem. It's like barely exists anymore like a mafia hangout. We're going to be talking to him about mafia cooking and murder. And also the soup the supermodel Carol alt, he's becoming we've got a lot of the guests that are. I just don't talk to her about those things. No, at the murder, no. But we're going to, and by the way, we stand firmly against murder. We do. Yeah, publicly. Privately, some people need killing. But the point is, publicly, we're against murder. Again, and we're getting it. And so we want to say that those dates, if you go to Eric metaxas dot com, you can see under the schedule how to sign up to be here. It's going to be fun. I'm telling you, it's going to be a blast. You're going to meet some of these people. You're going to meet me in Albin and whoever this is going to be an amazing, amazing thing. And if you can come or you know anybody who can be there, we've got a gorgeous theater downstairs. I mean, it's gorgeous. It's amazing. It's where we filmed our Christmas special three years ago, so I want to remind you that if we had many of you there, if you can get there, it'll be more fun for us. But we're going to have a full audience. Don't worry. There's people who come to New York looking for stuff to do. So we will have a full audience. So that's good. But also, I want to ask you very sincerely to pray because this is a big deal. You know, this is not just a, hey, we want to put on a show. We want to change the world. We want to do some things that maybe haven't been done. And I want to say that really. And sincerely, yes, well, there's no question about that. So anyway, that's important, and I also want to say, did I mention about nutrimetics? No, you didn't. Just a couple days left. I didn't mention that? No. At the beginning of this segment, no, I didn't. No, you didn't. Oh, yes, new traumatic dot com. Only a couple days left for you to get 30% off everything on the website.

Balance of nature is fruits and vegetables in a capsule, changing the world, one life at a time. I could not get along without my balance of nature. And I want to tell you that because of the change people I know have seen in me since I've been taking balance of nature, they are now taking it. And even my manicurist told me the other day that she seemed such a change in my hands that it made a believer out of her and she's taking it. I'm 74 years old, the right my bike, 25 to 30 miles a day. I feel gray, people tell me I'm looking great..

"We're talking to my friend pastor Greg Laurie, who's written a ton of books, and we're now talking about the film that is coming out in a few months, Jesus revolution. Greg, you have to frame this. This is the Jesus movement. You were right there in the middle of it. You met your lovely wife of almost 50 years. Now, this is mind-blowing to me that it's that long. In the middle of this time, people getting baptized in the Pacific Ocean right not far from where you live and minister and you've made a film about this. So you said past your chuck Smith who's this icon just died a few years ago. He's played by Kelsey Grammer. I am so thrilled that Kelsey Grammer is an unbelievable actor. Did you get to interact with him? I know on your social media I saw something. Yeah, it's a lot actually. I spent a lot of time with Kelsey. Very gracious man. Amazing actor. And what I love, he just brought such authenticity to this role. And I asked Kelsey because Chelsea is obviously being very successful. Frasier and other projects he does. And I said, why did you take this role, Kelsey? The play a pastor. And he said, well, I was at a point in my career where I was thinking, I want to do something that's meaningful. I want to do something that matters. And he says, in his words, I was just meditating and thinking about this. And that day, the script for Jesus revolution came. I said, well, Kelsey, I think that was an answer to your praises. I believe it was. And he played it so powerfully. And it's just, I think people are going to be blown away by his role in Jesus revolution. And then we have Jonathan rumi, who plays Jesus in the chosen. If you've seen the chosen Eric, I've seen some of the chosen. Everybody tells me I got to see it. I got to see it. So I've only seen a little bit of it, but it's kind of on my to do list. Well, Jonathan, I think is the best cinematic Jesus I've ever seen. He's managed to take it to a place I've never seen it taken due before. And he's a wonderful guy. And he does a fantastic job in the role of this evangelist named Lonnie that chuck welcomed into his home and then Joel Courtney is a very, very popular young actor. He was part of The Kissing Booth on Netflix and super 8 directed by Spielberg a number of years ago. He plays Greg, a very outstanding actress named Anna grace Barlow, plays Kathy. And there's a beautiful love story. And so there's laugh out loud moments. There's tear up and maybe cry out loud moments, but here's the coolest thing about this film. Is John Erwin who's the director? I just said, John, I think it's really important that we show a conversion in a legitimate, yet a cinematic way. It's never been done. Every time I see a conversion portrayed in film, they just don't get it right. And so John said, I agree. So he wrote it into the script and so there's a moment when Greg accepts Christ and loni leads him to Christ and we have this on the screen, then Lonnie baptized his Greg. It is such a powerful scene. And Eric, I think done when this scene is shown in theaters literally around the world. It'll be a global release in stream in its streams later on different platforms. I believe people watching this scene which happens halfway into the film will be some moved that they will be praying that prayer and asking Jesus to come into their life. That is just like the greatest thing ever, it's amazing. So this is what happened to you. Yes. I want to be clear. You're saying, Greg, you mean yourself 50 something years ago. This happened to you. Well, did 100% and I wanted a funny thing too because this is set in 1970, but for some reason, 1970 really parallels this moment that time we're in. I don't think the 80s do. I don't think the 90s do or the early 2000s. There's something about that era because we're still listening to a lot of the same music. And we still, you know, a lot of young kids that have rediscovered discovered for the first time, you know, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, you know, et cetera. And so all these cultural touch points in the film feel like it's now the movie doesn't feel like a time capsule. It feels like this is happening now and our hope is that as people watch it, especially young people and by the way, when they test marketed it, they were really surprised by how many young people, especially young women liked it. Usually they find older Christian women like the Christian films. In this case, it was younger Christian girls, which I'm very happy about. And so I think that this is going to be a movie that hopefully would inspire a young generation to say, lord, we want to see it in our generation..

"Pastor Greg Laurie, who is writing books, making films, they haven't seen you at church in years. What's going on with you, man? Are you back? No, listen, this is exciting. The new book is a Lennon Dillon Allison Jesus, the spiritual biography of rock and roll. I want to talk to you about the film, the new film. But before that, in your book, do you mention Chris christofferson? Because obviously he's not really thought of as a rockstar. But I know he's somebody that came to faith at some point. Yeah, I do actually talk about him. I also wrote about him in my book, Johnny, on Johnny Cash. Funny thing you talk about recognizing celebrities. So I was working on this documentary film about Johnny, and I watched some interviews with Chris that were more recent. So I flew out, came back to LAX. I'm walking to my car. I see this guy from the back and somehow I recognize him from the back. From the back. See, that's next level crazy stuff. That's like, that's like Holy Spirit stuff. Flesh and blood is not capable of recognizing somebody from the back, you're telling me you're not kidding from the back, you said, I think that's Kris Kristofferson. Yeah. So I walked over and I said, oh, Chris, and Greg Laurie, I've written this book and I held up my Johnny Cash book, and I said, and I quote you in the book, Chris, and I'd love to send you a copy. He gave me his address. I sent it. He wrote me back. And said he was going to read it. He was very nice men and there's a series that Ken burns did on country music. I just watched it. Wasn't it great? It was great. I only have one question, though. Is it really was great? But I have one question the whole film to about country music and Ken burns is going to be soup to nuts encyclopedia is going to cover everything. They never mentioned Glenn Campbell. And I thought, what was that? What was that about? Is that not odd? It's like they decided no, no, no. He was pop. He was popular. But it was just bizarre, because it's a really good I spoke about it on this program. And in fact, Glenn Campbell really popularized country music, especially when his TV show came on. He was part of what was called the wrecking crew. Which is an illusion. He was the ultimate session musician who then made it big, yeah. And one of the thing Glenn kemble became a Christian as well. So he was very upfront about his faith. And so anyway, so coming back to Chris, I gave him the book. When were we talking about Chris sergeant? I want to tell you a freaky story about, but you and I talk about recognizing celebrities. Nobody else sees them. Where? What are you talking about? I may have told you this story. This is a true story. I was in Berlin, Germany. With my wife and daughter, I never have time, but we had a day, and I thought, well, we have a day with nothing to.

So Greg, you're sharing some fascinating stuff that John Lennon called in, I mean, I had heard that he was watching Christian TV kind of hanging out in the Dakota during this strange period in the 70s kind of raising his son there just being a house husband and watching Christian TV and that he called up Billy Graham's whatever called up the number on the screen and professed faith in Christ and then you said wrote about it in his diary. Yeah, I wrote about his new film faith in his diary and he recorded two Christian songs. If you go to YouTube and Google John Lennon comet Christian songs, you'll find that they were rough songs, one almost made it on his final album, a double fantasy. But even a double fantasy, you can see him beginning to soften. He writes in his song beautiful boy about his sunshine before you go to sleep, see a little prayer every day and every way gets better and better. John was changing. Now, here's a tragedy, and we all know that. John was murdered by Mark David Chapman. And so I begin this book with this statement. There'll be three surprises when we get to heaven. Number one, some of the people we thought would be there won't be there. Number two, some of the people we never thought would be there will be their number three, we will be there. So here's my premise on John Lennon, because I wasn't there at that moment. He did survive the shooting. They put him in the back of a police car and rushed him to the hospital. The officer asked him, do you know who you are? John did if in the final moments of his life, John called out to the Jesus. He professed faith in his prayer would have been heard just as surely as Jesus heard the prayer of the thief on the cross. So

Greg Laurie Explores Faith in 'Lennon, Dylan, Alice, & Jesus'

"Listen, this book is exciting to me, Greg. And you have written you've written many books, you're an evangelist. You're at harvest church in Orange County. But you write about the lives of people and their intersection with faith in Jesus. So this one Lennon Dylan Alice and Jesus, I just read a whole book talking about the spiritual Bob Dylan, the spiritual side of him. And it seems so clear that he still is a believer in Jesus. He doesn't talk about it the way he used to. But that do you cover that in the book? Yeah, I have a whole chapter on bob and you know, that's exactly my premise. I've heard it said that we'll Dylan abandoned his Christian faith, and returned to his Jewish roots. Well, he is Jewish. But he did not abandon his Christian faith. The fact that I just read a review of his recent concert Dylan never stopped touring is on the road constantly. He's playing this song, got his service somebody from slow train coming, which is an overt Christian song. And as another newer song that he's written, that is very much a faith song. So, you know, bob came under such attack when he came out publicly as a Christian. I don't know if he just got tired of all the drama and controversy, but I don't see that he ever stopped believing what he was saying. Not that long ago he did a Christmas record of all things above Dylan Christmas record and sing those old songs just as you would expect. Bob Dylan to sing them, but at the same time, one interviewer said, using those songs as though you believe them, he says, I do.

Glenn Kirschner Feels a Trump Indictment Is Overdue

"Glen, you just tweeted when the J 6 committee revelations about Donald Trump's crimes. It's time for the DoJ to indict Trump and his co-conspirators. I was saying at the top of the show being out with chairman Schiff last night, we were saying that I understand he Liz Cheney, Elaine Laurie, others, putting public pressure on DoJ. I think that's fine. And I know you're of the impatient crew like I am, but I'm just curious, you know, because other people point to, you know, whether it's the eastman, the Clark raids, as you just said, the Bannon indictment to say that the Justice Department is working. Where do you come down on this in terms of, I mean, are you saying when you say now you really feel like Trump should be being indicted now? Yeah, I think a Trump indictment is long overdue. I try to exercise patients because I appreciate you need to build the strongest case possible against a former president and his co-conspirators. But you know, I just did a piece for MSNBC daily and I said, look, at some point, it's great that you're involved in covert investigations, grand jury investigations, which are secret by law. You're doing things behind closed doors, but Steph, there comes a time when we have to see overt public law enforcement action, like when we have witness tampering, those people need to be arrested promptly and publicly one to neutralize that threat and to send the message of deterrence to others. The problem is, no one on team Trump is being deterred. Why? Because there's no overt public law enforcement action. That I fault the Department of Justice war. They need to start doing that now. I don't care if we don't see a Trump conspiracy indictment tomorrow. We need to see some of these people who are tampering with witnesses and destroying evidence. We need to see them arrested now, and then you build on that.

Family And Friends Talking

"Welcome to live behind the veil and atmosphere where men and women of God speak his word to this age and bring his kingdom to this earth. Do you have ears to hear and eyes to see what God is doing in this hour? Let us join our host and the family's conversation as the Holy Spirit is unfolding. The word behind the veil. Hello, everyone. And welcome to live behind the veil. I'm Ron your host, and today the family discusses the many different aspects of these deep love relationships in our father's family. No one will need to teach you because all will know the lord. We are just talking about the word. We're talking about the lord, and we're not trying to teach anyone out there. We're just sharing the love of the lord that we have with one another. That's very true. Not like teaching from the old school or bringing sermon from the old school sense of the world. And that's exactly what we're not doing. Right. We have a walk with the lord and we have a relationship with the lord and because out of our relationship, we're ministry to each other and tell us. Right. We just want to share that with each other and with right. You know, I believe it was our last podcast. We talked about the fact that we believe that the kingdom is relationships relating and communicating. That's exactly what we're talking about. I meet the lord when I'm speaking with you guys. Or with others of like mine. And I think that's incredible because he's moving differently. He doesn't come to Gideon and say, oh, man of valor now go defeat the media nights. He doesn't do that anymore. I don't think. I don't think it's a one man show. You know, I think he's doing away with a singular ministry who takes all the glory on the stage. I don't think he's doing that. I think he is communicating through vessels who are just open to communicate and love one another, and share what the lord is doing with them. Right. Basically to me what this podcast is all about is a group of men and women that come together, and they just want to speak what's on their heart. And then, as a listener, you can come in to that room and sit there and listen to the conversation. In the lord can meet you through that conversation, and hopefully he'll meet you enough that you will want to reach out to us and talk to us and create a relationship. That's right. Become part of it. Exactly. That's right. Preaching has never gotten anybody anywhere. No. You know, people come in and make the people sit down and they preach at them and stuff. That hasn't really met the church of Christ. What meets the church of Christ is when you come in and you relate to one another. What could the early church do? They came to each other's house and what did they talk about? How God was meeting them and what they were doing from day to day. That's what met them because my experience is going to be different than your experience with Christ. Right. But they're both Christ. You give me faith. I give you faith. And that faith moves us forward into his kingdom. So the relationship of love is the thing that the kingdom is made of. And that's what we're dealing with, we all respect one another, and we all know that Christ is in each of our hearts, and because of that, when we relate, we're glorifying Christ, and it's an awesome, awesome place. And as more and more of us and others do this, we're going to find the kingdom start expanding on the earth, more and more. Yeah. And that's what our heart crying. Yeah. Right. Our heart cries for the kingdom of God to come on the sir, to displace all other kingdoms. Right. To make his kingdom be the only kingdom on his earth. And we love each other. The love of the lord is so evident in our relationship with each other. I kind of like the word Friends, there's something really important about that said in the scriptures. Jesus really wanted his disciples to be friends. And I feel like as we walk with God, we learn to marry one another. As friends, the part of that love is speaking the truth and love to one another. Right. There's an aspect of it that we're talking about with this fire. The positive side of that fire is at the moment you're going through it, you're hearing this from those that love you because where do you get the wounds? Correct. It's a sign you need to take that as a sign to you that you're not illegitimate child of the lord and not a son. If you're walking through life and God is not touching areas of your life and you don't have people speaking truth to you, especially, you know, husbands and wives and in a family atmosphere and it's done in love and I think if you look at this one scripture, my son do not regard lightly the discipline of the lord. Nor fate when you're punished by him. Right. For whom the lord loves he disciplines. And he punishes every son whom he accepts. It is for discipline that you endure. God deals with you as was sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline. But if you are without discipline, of which you have all become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. And so I want to take the positive side of this because I know we've seen a brother or sister do something or say something and you pull them aside and you go, hey, you know, that really was it the right thing to do. And then they can take that and go before the lord with it or however they process that. But this fire that God has and that we're talking about is a very positive thing and we need that in our lives absolutely. Yeah. You know, real quick, Jim loop 12 is where you want to find out about Friends. I agree with you completely on that. Laurie, what you're talking about, too, and the fire. It is because God loves us that he puts us through the fire. Right. Did he test us? He puts trials in front of us so that we can come to the other end of it. So it purifies us scriptures talk a lot about the purification of gold. You know, you put the fire to it and then all the dross comes to the top. Also silver, silver is really known for their draws, but it's the purification process. You have to put heat to it so then all the dross comes to the top and you skim it off, and then you do it again and you do it again until the purity of the silver or the gold is evident and that's what God is doing with us. Creating us into his gold and silver vessels. Yeah, I like to go back to what Jim was saying because the thing about friendship. I want to connect that with what Laurie was saying. In my mind, what the lord is doing is he's bringing forth in many membered body. He's bringing forth his family. Although I believe that the lord does deal with us through circumstances, things like that. He does do that. But I think as we progress in the lord, that becomes less and less, the real things that deal with our spirits is from our brother, in our sister, but see, that's not going to happen unless we begin to develop the relationships of trust between us and like Jim was saying friendship. The truth. You just think about it. Somebody comes up to you and crosses your will, and you don't know them from beings. You're not really going to listen to that very readily. You're not going to be open in your heart to that. As we progress in God's kingdom, and this is what Alan started with, the kingdom of God is relationships, not any relationship, its relationships with people that are with Christ, full of God, full of the Holy Spirit. They're very special relationships that the Holy Spirit's created, and those special relationships can minister discipline to one another. We've seen the attempt at church discipline and most of the time, I don't think it's worked too well. I think it's been oppressive, suppressive, because the relationship wasn't at the depth there. There wasn't the deep, friendship, the deep trusting. I'm not saying that's a blanket thing. I'm sure there were some, but I feel like as the body of Christ, this is what we're reaching into is these deep, deep, deep relationships that we can be crossed by one another. And it's not going to be a blowout. Now, no. You don't blow out when your friend comes up to you and says, you know, Jim, that wasn't quite right, which you said. Because Jim knows my heart, he knows I have a love for him in a brokenness, and I'm not being arrogant or trying to hurt him. So that's the type of relationship I think we're entering into. That thing of silver you're talking about Allen. Here's something that's got precious metal in it. John 15 1213. My command is this. There you go. Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this to lay down one's life for one's friends. There is a discipline that we follow in God in Christ, the command that we are to be crossed. We are to be crossed up in our own will. That's the truth. And in doing that, we're laying our lives down for our Friends. The thing of trust versus the thing of judgment, judgment has a bad connotation because basically he's just purifying us as we get more purified we can come into the trust more of one another, and that oneness will start coming forth. Yeah. Unless you have that trust, you're going to react. And you're not going to open up to your brother. But as we come into the purification process, if we let the lord bring out the dross, then we can open up more, and actually start working in this thing that Christ wanted to put on the earth in the first place. Exactly. And that's where the church age has not done it. It's either you're sinning and you're going to hell or you're following all the rules. Or something. And that's not what Christ wanted. He wanted the thing of trust to start growing in humanity. Right. Right. The lord takes a step by step. And it's a young child. He would not allow them to do certain things, and he would discipline, and in one way. But as they grow as they become more mature, as they come into a relationship of knowing and trusting the lord, being able to know who the lord is, who others are being able to trust them, then they're able to open up more. And as you open up more, the lord brings different things to their brief to draw set. And as it draws comes up, because they trust in the relationship that they have, that have been developed for over a period of time. Then, the draw doesn't become a killing point. It doesn't become the issue, it becomes a thing that you just skim off the time. Right. And you become here before the lord, you know, a step by step most dirt as you walk people. Yeah. Yeah. You're talking line upon line precept upon precept. That's what I was going to say. Is that what you're going to say? Yeah. Okay, I just wanted to tie what Ron and what I said and what the others have been saying is that this lifestyle is a choice. Yeah. Not everyone, then there are different levels of walking with God. And different depths. And we're talking about becoming sons and becoming all in 100% disciples. And that's what I wanted at ties all this together. You as an individual Christian need to come to the place in your heart where you desire and choose this. There are so many dwelling places. In the kingdom of God. It's interesting because one of the places of division that has been huge is people think, well, I believe this way and this way is higher and this weighs more and so Lori is saying he goes, what we're holding up here is a very high standard. It's called a sun ship, but guess what? You may be starting out, or you may be walking, have walked with the lord ten years, but you're just not there. Your heart's not there. You know, God hasn't brought you to that place, and that is okay. That is fine. You're not less of a person, you're not less before the lord, he doesn't look at you. You don't look at your child, your two year old, and putting down because you can't do what your 18 year old can do. Correct. Your love just as much. There is no put down. And that's the subtle thing that tries to come in when you start speaking things of sun ship and resurrection life. And all these things that we're talking about, it's not a put down. If you're not there, it's fine. In fact, one of our great mentors told us when you hear stuff and it just doesn't click with you. You're just not there. Don't throw it away, just put it on your spiritual shelf. And the Holy Spirit will bring it to you when it's time for you. You're fine where you're at. I was just thinking, in my house, there's many dwelling places, and you can choose where you want to dwell. It doesn't matter. Once you accept the lord, you're going to have it. And if somebody wants to be there and just accept the lord, that's their choice. It's not the choice I would make. It's because I'm not them. Yeah, and so there's no judgment in it or anything. But if you choose to really become a mature son of God, these are the steps that you need to go, and it's a maturing process. In my father's house are many dwelling places which is true. There are many dwelling places. In the King James it says in my father's house are many mansions. So you can live in the penthouse so you can live in the basement. It's your choice. Today we've seen that the love discipline and maturity comes through these deep love relationships in the father's family. We've also seen that in our father's house there are many dwelling places. Many levels to live on, the question is, which level will you choose? Experiencing the impartation of God's word through his family is life.

"And atmosphere where men and women of God speak his word to this age and bring his kingdom to this earth. Do you have ears to hear and eyes to see what God is doing in this hour? Let us join our host and the family's conversation as the Holy Spirit is unfolding. The word behind the veil. Hello podcasters, this is Ron you're host and tonight, we have a new family podcast member sandy Johnson. Hey, sandy. Hey, sandy. Hey, I just want to. I want to say that sandy and I have known each other for decades. Many decades. And I'm telling you, she is an incredible woman of God and she really has something to share. I'm anticipating the participation of her and the continued participation with Laurie and if Jim decides to come on then with him also, you know, the family is growing and I'm very excited about it. Well, family. Sounds like we're ready to go. Let's dive into the flow of the Holy Spirit. If a brother or sister, without clothing, and in need of daily food, and if one of you says to them, go in peace, be warmed and be filled. And yet you do not give them what is necessary. For their body, what use is, it's like saying bless you, be gone, you know, we love you. Take a hike. There is an expression God solo the whole world Christ when he moved around. He was moved with compassion for somebody. When we see a need, we should address it. Don't just, boy, I hope someone comes and gives you a $5 bill so you can go to McDonald's and have a lunch. No. Find what the real need is and let's find a way to support that need. What you did to the list of these, my brother, you did it to me, when did we visit you in jail? When did we give you clothes? When you did it to the least of these, that's faith, is seeing a need and addressing it. Now, we've heard the term, infinite God loves you. Okay, you know what? It's God through me loves you and hears his expression of how he loves you. I carry him with me wherever I go, and so I want people to be introduced to who the father is, because I care enough to dress a situation that someone is in need that you can help. If you can't help, ask the lord, show you. Is there a means? Is there some other place? Take it with a grocery store and buy them 20 bucks of groceries or something. It's that giving. It's the making things alive for someone else our heart can reach out to so many just because we take compassion on someone and address a need that they have. What makes that work, Alan is judge not lest you be judged. Right. Because who are we to come up to a situation? And judge it and then act accordingly. Our responsibility is to come and give of ourselves. Yeah. Without pre determining what is needed. Because the Holy Spirit will lead us. The Holy Spirit will fill our mouths our hearts. We humble ourselves, and that lets God come through. Yes. You know, how do we know the things that are happening in people's lives, this can be God dealing with them? We don't want to mess with that. We don't want to say, oh, you need to do this and you need to repent here and repent there. We just want them to open their heart to the Holy Spirit, open their heart to the father, and let God minister to them. I think we have to be led of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Then we will do the things that God has for us to do. If we start off our day, asking for the Holy Spirit to lead us to direct us, then we're going to be led of the spirit to those that the lord has prepared. You know, it's interesting you say that because I kind of take what Smith wigglesworth brought out once. Yeah. And he said, if I'm out in town, and I see a need, I'm headed over that way and God better meet me there because I'm going in his name. Because he was a man of the Holy Spirit, right? He didn't care if he was led to go talk to that person or not. He went to that person. But if I start out my day, leaving to be led of the Holy Spirit, then I'm believing that whatever I come across, that's going to be led at the Holy Spirit. Yeah, I agree with you. I see a knee, and I'm going to manage to turn that belief of the Holy Spirit and the lord to be there because I'm there. Yeah, I had a couple of experiences I wanted to share many years ago. I went with my daughter to go see my dad and step mom. They were elderly and the place was a mess. I mean, there was like knee deep trash and a little bathroom and the kitchen and everything and so my daughter and I started cleaning and got the place back in shape and when we were leaving my dad looked at me and said, you know, you guys didn't just come here. He says you brought something with you. And I had a similar experience when I retired I had to do an exit interview with the director of engineering and she was talking to me and stuff. She says, you know, you brought something here. Not something with you. And I think that people who are sensitive are going to see the lord. Yes. Yes. And who you are. It's not that you're, you know, was I perfect there? No, you know, but it just comes through. People know, it's not just you, you're bringing the lord with you. Yeah. Right. Exactly. I do feel like there are times when the Holy Spirit does specifically lead a person. Right. I've been finding that more and more. And you can confirm to yourself that it was the Holy Spirit when you see the results. When the lord leads you to talk to a person in a restaurant or just Sunday morning during the meet and greet that we had the Holy Spirit led me to this person who had been to the service several times, but I had never talked to her before. And I went over there, and by the time we were done, she was bawling on my shoulders. That wasn't me, that was the Holy Spirit, and I think, as we keep opening our hearts to the Holy Spirit. But it's because I knew the low Holy Spirit was leading me. And so exactly. Yeah, definitely you go there and you expect the Holy Spirit to be there, but there are those times when the Holy Spirit is specifically leading you, and what the human wants to do is to ignore it because you don't want to interfere with that person. But it is the Holy Spirit. I think you're talking a lot about awareness. Yeah. You can be in a crowd and like Christ, right when the woman touched his garment. Right. Who touched me? Because he was aware of what was going on around him. And what you're talking about isn't awareness. Holy Spirit. You want to administer somebody? Where? Who? Yeah. Which one of these people? Keep your radar open, and you know, you can be in a midst of a crowd talking, then you just know, I need to go over here. Right. I have left the middle of a conversation with someone to go meet somebody. And, boy, like you say, the results. Man, people open up. And there are people that I really don't want to listen to. But at the same time, who are they going to talk to? There are people who have issues because no body wants to hear their story, and sometimes you have to sit on a park bench and just let them talk. It will free somebody. And that's everything, and like you said, but I just want to go back to that awareness. It's being aware of where you're being led. And it's like almost like what I'm saying with what Smith did is sometimes you create it's your initiative. Father, I know the word, and I'm going to execute your word in this situation. Better meet me there because it's your word. Yeah. Can the lord minister that person? Of course he can. Well, are they open? Let's find out. It's one of the things that makes walking with God so exciting. Exactly. Because one minute you're kind of just floating along or whatever and the Holy Spirit will lead you to a person. Will lead you to a place, and then there is those times where you just knew what to do. Exactly. Because there is unawareness, and I would say there's something working in you. Things that are established. You don't stop and think to breathe. And I think the more we walk with God, the more his nature is imparted to us, that we do things that are automatic. It's fun to walk with God because we come to the place where we're willing to do what it takes. You know, take it back again to what sandy was talking about. And I love it because honestly, and we've talked about this before when Jesus received the spirit, he was compelled. Yes. He wasn't led by the spirit he was compelled by the spirit. He was driven into the wilderness. You minister, and you let God do it. You plant the seed and let God give the increase. You know, this conversation is creating such an excitement in me. Good. And I wanted everyone to know that everyone, no matter how old you are in the lord, has something to give. Yes, Matt, if you can approach this in your life where, you know, say you're going to a Sunday service, you ask the lord, well, what can I do? Who do you want me to meet and bless show me, you know? You can go with a servant's heart to give everywhere you go. I think that'll create something. You'll grow and develop. What's one of the key gifts of the spirit kindness? If you simply show kindness, you're expressing the lord to that person. When do we visit you in jail? When do we give you clothing when you did it to the least of these? That's faith, just saying we love someone and wishing them well isn't what we're called to do. There must be an action of faith to express our love and concern for our neighbor.

Hello podcasters, I am Ron your host, and today we've got a brand new member of the family or actually part of the podcast. She's not a new member of the family, but she's a new member of the podcast. Hi Laurie, how are you? I'm doing great. Yeah, we love having you on here. We know your heart and we know how much of an expression you are. Boy, I expect that there's a lot of people who are going to meet the lord because of you being with us. Yeah, I'm really happy you're here, Lori. Yeah, we keep talking about a family, but it sound like a boys club for a long time. It really did. So it's wonderful. Just wonderful to have another lady on, especially somebody like Laurie this completely fill the full of the words. Awesome. And we also have another tree. We have a podcast guest. Hi Jim, how are you? Hey guys. Good to be here this evening. Love having you here. That's another opportunity for another aspect of the word that's going to come out. I anticipating tonight's cast because boy, it's just going to be wonderful. I'm just excited. I asked me to big time. Thank you so much. I believe it for the same thing. It's exciting to greet two more of those who have a unique gift and to hear and participate in that gift being exercised and appreciated. Well, that's for sure. We've known Lori and Jim and his wife pat for gosh. I don't know how many years, a long time. Two or three. Yeah, two or three years for sure. Decades, at least at least decades. Well, family. It's going to be an exciting night. We'll be talking about the Holy Spirit and fire. This dive into it. What is the fire? Is the fire God? Yes. That's a good point. It's a fire all consuming. Yes. Is the fire deadly? To our flesh and to everything that keeps us from standing in the presence of the lord. Our flesh is living. It won't live in its presence. We have to have the fire in us to consume that. I was thinking about the three Hebrew children when they went in the fire. What was consumed by the fire? Their bondage is, that's what was burned. Because they came out with not even a smell of fire on them. The presence of the lord is what the fire is. But the fire is something that we have to have working in our lives so that we can see that burn off. I thought long and hard about this question at first I didn't quite understand what the fire was and then I remembered when I very first accepted the lord. Everything was joyful. You go through this honeymoon experience. Then the lord starts putting his finger on things in your life. Yep. And so one way to look at the fire is the dealings and the process that God puts you through to purify your spirit and to purify your heart before him. Exactly. That was the simplest way I could think of to explain the fire spiritual warfare would be contained in that, because it's that warfare that brings the fire to our adamic nature or who we are and what Debbie's talking about in the flesh. But also dab I wanted to remind everybody that when the three Hebrew children were thrown into the fire, that those guards who threw them into the fire were consumed. Yeah, they were. The fire has a dual purpose. We hear this thing about hardening the clay or making the making the wax soft and pliable. And it's all dependent upon our reaction to the word, that is going to determine whether we're going to be softened or hardened by the fire. That's true. Your damn nature is going to be less and less. We receive the Holy Spirit. And this is the thing that he's to work in us until we can come to the point where we can stand before the father face to face. Right? Right. To have the blood of Christ is honest, but everything else has been burned out. That's what the Holy Spirit is bringing to us. Is that fire to take care of this a damn nature that, unfortunately, it was put on us, because of the sin of atom. Seems like there's an element of our choice as to how the fire is perceived. Exactly. There is an element of how the fire is applied. As well as perceived, and I think one thing that's important is the foundation of the fire. Christ, ministry began he came preaching the Holy Spirit and fire. From the very beginning, fire was of a very much a part of the word that Christ brought to the earth and as we have come into a greater revelation of who he is by virtue of walking in his footsteps were coming to understand a lot more about the fire. Right. Yeah. You know, I think one of the real wonderful things about the fire is the fact that if we were to wait until the final judgments, then we're going to be all burned up, and they're like dibs that there will be nothing left. But I think we go through little tidbits here and there, and it's like maybe it's only a match that's burning a piece of your nature. Right. Right. When you conquer that one thing, you've been through a portion of the fire and you've come out on the other side. It's like the thing of The Rock falling on us. We want to fall on The Rock and we'll be broken. But for those who The Rock is going to fall on, they're going to be crushed and completely destroyed. And that's why we want to go through it now. We want to go through the judgments where God gets control of our spirit. Gets control of us so that we can actually walk in his presence, look back on your lives and see, you know, when you first became a Christian, there were ups and downs in this trial, and that trial in testing. I know there are so many points in my life I'm going, okay, God, what are you doing today? Exactly. And as years later, as a season saint, you don't see as much of that. Right. Because God has worked in your spirit a lot of these things that were that he wanted removed. He's worked in your heart already. He may do a small part, have a small area like a match that burns up a small area. And then there may be larger areas as time goes on as you grow in the lord. You find more things falling off. More things being burnt, more things enabling you to stand in his presence for a longer period of time. What seems to be really clear here that we're all talking about, is that God is a consuming fire. Exactly. I think a lot of people miss that. They love the sweet and gentle Jesus. And they love when the lord helps them in blossom. Blesses them. Yep. But if you, if you won't walk into the fire, you're missing the father, you're missing. I mean, you can't just take part of somebody, right? Well, I know that person because they're always happy. Yeah. You're missing 90% of the person. And it's the same with God. You know, there are so many people out there that they accept so much of God, but they don't want to accept the dealings. They don't accept the fire on their lives and they run from the fire. They run from the dealings, and yet they still feel like they have this walk with God, and then what's the scripture say? They come to the last time in the lord lord and he goes, I don't know you. You did all these mighty works, but I don't know, yeah. 'cause you never allowed the fire to burn out the lawless thing within your nature. You know, the thing without the three heaver children. Okay, they were thrown into the fire. But they weren't in there alone. Right. There was a fourth person that was in there. That was the lord, and no matter what fire you go through, he's going through it with you. Right? He's going to bring you out the other side because that's his joy. That's right. I think we're going to raise a question for some people listening in the fact that what he talking about progressive judgments isn't there going to be one big judgment in the last day? Yeah, there's people who are going to bring this up and there's scriptural backing for what we're talking about. We talk about Daniel in different things and bring these things out and may not be a bad idea, there are those who believe that there's one time set for all, you know, maybe sometime we want to address that. But you know that one time set for all when it comes up to that time. Those that have gone through the fire in their lives are not going to be going through the judgments, judgment was never meant for the children of God. That's right. Though it was standing right in the midst of her floating right in the midst of judgment, but he wasn't touched. God gives us as children of God away to go through them, and when we come out the other side, we've been affected by it, but we have not partaken of it. The goring threw it to church talking about Ed, the scriptures very simply related to the agricultural days in which the scriptures were written. They planted the wheat, you know, this parable, long came a bad person, and so tears. They discovered them as they started to grow. Do we take out the tears now? No, wait till they mature. And that's where a lot of where we're living now is those tears are of matured, there being taken out, and what's left is the wheat. But the wheat is not usable the way it is. At the Shell, around the kernel, the life of the wheat, the chaff has to be removed, and that's what you're talking about in these judgments, judgment begins in the house of the lord, and that judgment that comes by the fire of the Christ was talking about is burning away the chaff, and what's left. That's a question, what's left? The colonel, the colonel of weight, the very center, the thing that God wants. To use. You know, I think when people think of fire, they're afraid of it because it's going to hurt them. It's going to bother them. It's going to affect them in a negative way. Instead of seeing it as the means of the lord has of getting rid of everything that keeps us from his presence. I'd like to throw some scriptures in here and James, the book of James is one of the most convicting books to read, but he does say here consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance and let endurance have its perfect result. That you may be perfect and complete lacking in nothing and one of the things that the lord is looking for is where to become like him. As the Christian were to emulate and be Christ on the earth. The only way to do that is to go through the fire, exactly. That's perfect, Laura, because again, there are many people out there and I'm sure everyone's met them. That are trying to be christlike. You can't try to be christlike. Right. Doesn't work. It doesn't work. The lord has to come and burn out that which is not Christ like in you. He's the what they call, he's the Potter, and we're the clay, the process that the father gave us at Jesus gave us, at the Passover, the communion, and that's where, as we eat of his body and drink of his blood, we turn away. And that turning away is that separation, where the chaff is separated from the wheat. That turning away repenting or repentance as not an easy thing to do. But by partaking of his communion the power gives an in his blood, given in his body, makes it possible. It enables us I'm going to bring out hebrews, right? He was 12, do not regard lightly the discipline of the lord, nor faint when you are reproved by him. Does it hurt? Yeah, it does. Because you tell me one person, especially a young person who loves getting Spain. The discipline, it's not comfortable. Because he is changing our nature. And that's the issue. He's changing our nature. We have this wonderful story about a man we know, who, when his mother would grab a belt, he would grab a hole to her really tight because then she couldn't swing that belt. He knew how to not get hit so hard, the more you run from someone with a belt boy. That whiplash effect or the whip effect, boom, at hertz. Yep. You know, I think that a lot of this discipline, the scripture says all discipline for now for the time being is sorrowful, not joyful, but it produces how to say the righteous rights of God. He skirted every son whom he receives, the discipline that you endure God deals with you as with sons for what son is there, whom his father does not discipline the thing that I think is important to really realize is each step that we go through that we finally win a victory over. Yes. Yes. We then have authority in that particular area over Satan. He can't touch us in that realm any longer. That's true. Right. Are we perfect yet? Oh, no. We got a few more things to go through still. As each level is accomplished, he can't touch us anymore, and I think that's huge. That's something to really rejoice about. You know, we've been crying out for immunity. Yeah. You know, I mean, I know that people are crying out for immunity all over the earth from whatever you want to call it disease is sickness, all this type of stuff. How do you get there? Well, there you go. You go through the fire. Got test you, you go through the fire, you finally die out and overcome that specific thing on that specific level of life that you're living, and like Alan saying, then you walk in authority and dominion in that specific area of your life. But if you refuse the fire, you're refusing the very deliverance and the immunity. And the growth and the transformation that God's trying to bring to your life. You have to look at it through God's eyes because he's trying to perfect your spirit for eternity. He's trying to create a relationship with you for eternity and he's doing it through his fire. So you can stand in his presence and be in his kingdom. Getting close to him is the key to going through that fire. If you cry out to him and you reach into the fire, you reach in, you want that discipline. You kind of the place where you want that discipline. You want to be disciplined by the lord because you know that when you come through that, you're going to be able to have victory in that area. That's the one thing about God, you know? He starts putting you through the fire, and you say, no, no, no, I'm not going to do this and you walk away. Well, when you come back, you're going to get booked right back in that situation of the fire that you just left. Yep. Go through it when God gives it to you the first time. I think it brings us back to an understanding of hebrews three 15. It says today, if you hear my voice, do not harden your heart. And it's those who reject the fire or the chastening of the lord that pardon their heart and then they have a hard time with God any more after that. You know, it's by the grace of God that hopefully people open their hearts again. I love the details it's coming out as we're talking about this fire. Because it's a detail, this necessary in every step with God. It's exciting to know that the fire has a product. That it's not just an endless cycle, there is a promise, and that promise is the kingdom of God. That's what that fire is all about. So you press on. And as we get deeper and deeper into our walk with God, we go like David did. Created me a clean heart O God. Right. That very cry of David was all about the fire. All about burning off his flesh, his everything that was not pleasing to God. This is so, so important, you know, this is not a popular message in Christianity today. No. They just want the dear Jesus. You know, they're acting like gods and Santa Claus, but really what he's looking for is he wants all of you. Right. And the process of getting us so that we can even relate and see him as we have to be purified. Right. And this is the way to become purified so that you can see the lord. Have been kind of searching the scriptures a little bit while everybody's been talking. This is kind of a takeaway that I'm going to that I'm going to take with me from this conversation first Peter one 6 and 7. I'll just read it here for you. Though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith, of greater worth than gold. Which perishes even though refined by fire. May be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. And that is being revealed in me. As I receive and allow the fire to be applied to me and my nature.

Russia-Ukraine war: Some pastors wonder about "end of days"

"Russia's invasion of Ukraine has prompted some of America's prominent evangelical leaders to raise a provocative question they're asking if the world is now in the biblically prophesied end of days that might culminate with the apocalypse and the second coming of Christ among those broaching the issue recently are high profile mega church pastors Greg Laurie and Robert Jeffress Laurie says he believes we're living in the last days and the Christ could come back at any moment but evangelical theologian Russell Moore says it's wrong to try to connect world events to end times prophecy noting that Jesus himself said his second coming would be unexpected I'm Walter Ratliff

Congressman Matt Gaetz: 'I Wouldn't Measure the Speaker's Office for Drapes Quite Yet'

"It looks like the Republicans going to take back the house. I see almost no possibility. That isn't the case. Is that right? Well, I wouldn't measure the speaker's office for drapes quite yet. The macro generic ballot gives us a lot of tailwind. But you actually have to go win specific campaigns in specific candidates. You got to go beat golden in Maine. You got to beat a slotkin in Michigan. And you got to be Laurie and spanberger in Virginia. And these folks have run competitive campaigns and they have won them. And so I don't take it for granted. We have to have compelling candidates. And that's why what turning point has done with this America conference, this pro America conference we've been enjoying is so important because it actually gives our candidates the right tone, the right message, the right infrastructure to be able to go and win and I think that if we just say, well, the generic ballot looks good for us. We could look past some of these specific tactical things. I think what you're talking about is we also have to play to win, not as if we've already won and just play defense and taboo corporate tax cuts, right? Zombie Reagan isn't coming to save us. And so, you know, just sort of harkening back to the zombie Reagan issue matrix won't be helpful.

Lorie Loves All Things Creative but Colorado Wants to Censor Her

"There is a case in other case in Colorado and it raises an interesting question. Our Colorado courts, particularly goofy or is it just a coincidence? Well, a few months ago, the tenth circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Colorado officials could force a website designer to create custom website celebrating your viewers that goes against her biblical beliefs. Lori Smith is a website designer and she wants to create website celebrating the biblical view of marriage that is between one man and one woman. But if she does so, Colorado would punish her if she declined to create website celebrating a different view of marriage. And so unlike she looked around, she saw what the state was doing to Jack Phillips and she didn't want to be punished before she found out her constitutional rights. If she sued, and three months ago, the tenth circuit Court of Appeals said she could be punished for exercising her First Amendment right now to express a message that goes against her core beliefs. I'm quiet because I'm actually assimilating what you're saying. So according to the courts in Colorado, a person has to actively celebrate, for example, same sex marriage if they believe, even if they believe that religion demands that marriage be between a man and a woman. Do I have that correctly? That's what the ten circuit recently held that if Laurie Smith creates custom websites celebrating biblical marriage, the state would force her to also create custom websites celebrating differences, including same sex marriage.

"laurie her" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show

"So i'm not afraid to ask for your help. Hobie right back. Thank you span. And so tall okay. Before we go into our two albany. Yes i wanted to read people. You ask some friends to read the book ahead of time and to give you an endorsement if they like it and i asked dennis prager and this is what he wrote first of all. He sent me four. Blurbs three of them were nasty jokes making fun of me. one of them was a real blurb. This is the real blurb. He wrote. Dennis prager wrote when eric metaxas comes out with a new book. I have a problem i know i will have to read it. I have read all his books. Because i learned an immense amount from them because they are difficult to put down this latest book features metaxas versus atheism. It's not a fair fight. Read is atheism dead. And you'll understand why now that's very nice of him to say that and i don't i mean the funny thing is. It is the new atheists. With whom i take issue in this book because somebody who says i'm an atheist or something i think you know we have to respect people especially in america. We have a tradition of religious liberty which means we don't tell people what to think but when you find people really being nasty to people for what they think like the new atheists have been. I find that off pudding as an american now. Many of these extremely nasty new atheists are british but americans we. We have a culture here where we try to respect each other's beliefs. But in the book i take. Christopher hitchens and richard dawkins to task for their unbelievable intellectual sloppiness. When i really looked at their stuff. I thought i never dreamt that the new atheists could be this superficial hollow nasty. When i say nasty i mean. They're being nasty because evidently they have no actual arguments except to sneer and be nasty him to to to to try to say christians have said and done things that they've never done or just horrible stuff but there's their pictures in the book color pictures which if you're listening on radio you can just see them. If you win at your radio speaker you'll get a show. But squint at the speed would just be but i but i have some funny pictures in here. I have one picture of galileo looking through to actually trying to get people to look through his telescope and this is kind of at the center of the book. Science and faith have always been friends and i make that case from history in the book in a kind of madness overtakes people where they don't want to look at the evidence and so i'm daring people to read the book and to deal with the evidence. You don't have to like me. You don't have to like other christians or what. Forget it but just try to deal with the evidence because we have to live truthfully. Listen folks. I don't like eric but i'm going to reassess he's saying yes and i don't like you and you're gonna read my books. I want you to right away. I will be interviewing you about the book and it'll probably week from our so so get ready for that. Okay so i did about this. Here's something you're going to see. Okay i get into something. That this is gonna plum. I don't know it's it's gonna flat out for freak out people who read this okay in nazareth. Recently very recently published a book in which the findings of somebody who's been excavating since two thousand and six were revealed. This came out a few months ago. This is blockbuster. Stuff folks you're gonna you're not gonna believe it. An archaeologist found what amounts to the first century home of jesus. Mary and joseph in nazareth. Now that sounds insane. And mythical like that's like you know somebody who did who said he found the garden vida or somebody who found the santa's workshop at the north pole folks. I give you all the details in here and there is a photograph. I took some trouble to get this of the stone foundation and the door and everything it just crazy stuff and i'm just wanting to challenge people to look deeply into this stuff because the evidence gets absolute crazy absolutely crazy. You can tell him as good as a school girl. Just getting a new copy of my book. That i've not seen before excited please pre-order it at eric metaxas dot com. We could use your help there thank you..

I'm even more excited about it. Because i can see the photos. Oh my gosh. Some of these photos are hilarious. Some captions are unintentionally hilarious. But i'm not going to tell you what they are. I want to say that this would make a great birthday present Speaking of which yesterday was oz. Guinness's birthday i owe so much to my friend oz guinness. I've mentioned my book if he can keep it. I never would have written that book if not for happy. Birthday ause guinness. God bless you and tomorrow. Oh no today. Today is katie. Madonna's birthday katy. Used to work here until i fired her five minutes ago. But then i retired. 'cause you can't find somebody. I'm their birthday birthday. So katie. happy birthday birthday to you.

And so in any event obviously Katie and her husband brian. They get a copy of this book whether it's her birthday anyway. But i wanna say that if you wanna preorder this book you can pre-order this book by going to my website. Which is eric metaxas. Dot com air protects dot com dot com. We we need to get the preorder up. I wanna. I'm just gonna lay it on the line folks this book okay. It's about getting the truth out. It's it's not about selling books okay. I write books all the time. It's what i do. But what's in this book. There is information from science. That is staggering. Now i didn't. I'm not a scientist. But i read all these books over the years and i said i have to write about that so i put it in this book so the stuff in here about the limits of science about the what what the big bang teaches us about the limits of it's crazy. You're gonna you're gonna laugh. It's a lot of this stuff is actually very funny stories. Einstein embarrassed himself horribly because he didn't like the idea of a universe. The beginning i write about that. It's it's it's funny. I read about the fine tuned. Universe if you're at my book miracles i talk about the fine tuned universe. This goes woj a beyond that there is stuff in here. Water is something that when you study. Water this guy. Michael denton wrote a book about it. Nobody would believe that water again. A chapter in here about water. And you say what could it look. How boring it's going to blow your mind when you realize. How outrageously designed water is you know. God had to design it. It's insane and actually a lot of people water. H two o right. i would like to rename it h. Two whoa whoa h. To wo- because it's that crazy h. Two now you know. Yeah yeah nobody. There's things there are things in here that are going to take your breath away and again it's not because of my writing is because the facts the more. Here's here's the thesis of the first part of this book is that the more science learns the more it makes it impossible not to believe god designed the universe and it's getting freaky the thing about water and the thing about sunlight when you read that if you really understand what i'm saying in the book and it's gonna freak you out you're gonna say there is no question. God designed the universe. That's just one part of it. Then go into the james tour stuff. We're going to have him on this program. Then i go into biblical archaeology. The evidence from biblical archaeology is freaky. Right and stephen collins was on stephen collins. There's a chapter about the stephen collins stuff in here. oh and newsweek is publishing. I wrote a piece about the stephen collins the discovery of biblical sodom. And all that stuff. It's gonna be newsweek. Al put it on my get my this section. Why haven't we heard this before. And that's what the book is all about. The book is saying like this is a stuff you never heard before. Now you're hearing. Well i mean i'm not kidding you when i say that i believe god had to lead me to this stuff because i didn't spend years researching. This is just. I bumped into stephen collins because of my friends skipped heights. It is freaky thing that no one has heard of the discovery biblical sodom. And then when you get the details you think this is probably the most astonishing evidence for the for the for the truth of the bible. It's crazy nobody knows it. I mean christians. Don't know non-christians don't know it. How's it possible that people this wasn't on the cover of the new york times well anyway elite there so but the third part of the book. The weirdest thing to me is that nobody knows that. Two of the greatest atheists actually three of the twentieth century all came to believe in god. It's it's you can't make this up category stuff. We're talking jean-paul sartre albert camus. Anthony flu and i have a chapter devoted to the three of them..

"Don't have to be judged. We don't have to go to call lewis. Put the gates of taller luck from the inside and the person that ends up in this place of separation from god has to be fairly determined. Get there they have to reject guts offer give forgived. I think people are afraid that it will offend if they give this message. But as far as i'm concerned if i don't give this message i'm concerned all them because they have to build the truth. It's interesting isn't it. When you know. God is real. You worry about what he thinks. But if you don't think he's real you just you don't think about that but it is a funny thing. I've just come to the conclusion that unless you have a personal relationship. I mean people. Use that all the time. But i don't mean like a mental assent to these ideas i say okay. I believe that i believe that. Well you have to have a personal relationship with him. He has to be real in some visceral way but when that happens it does it changes everything.

"If you can start at you know with an early show. Say six o'clock and go till two. Am you might be able to get you. Know six or eight sets in depending on how far apart they are you know it was a good other is always a good run if you could do the comic strip which was on eighty second second and stand up new york which is seventy nine th and broadway because you could just go right through the park in every ten minutes apart so you like an eight o'clock at the strip and get a gas stage by eight fifteen twenty grab your cash run into a cab and be at stand up for your eight forty and they go back to the strip for their next show and back to stand up for the next show because they would each have usually at that time you know three shows a night just being being being being being an all you would spanish your cap fair and the rest of it is cashing keep and that's always exhilarating. I mean it's so stressful. And when i used to always do that as much as i could. And then when i would get came out to la for conan. And i would go back to new york to do that. I realized well. This is really stressing me out. And before i didn't even notice i'm like that's how you live. This is in right right. So i stopped being aggressive. I filled. I have one spot and our you know it. It is very tiresome in. You aren't necessarily getting good work done on your act you're just trying to not you know especially if you like your club on the eight o'clock show then you could do a senator club then you come back to the ten o'clock it feels like you're tells us to this audience because i was just on the stage you know at fifteen minutes ago and you can't remember see from me i would have i. This is my settlers for the night. An telling these shifts in this order eight times tonight and i can't deviate because a otherwise. I will probably ended up repeating something or go insane. I was going to ask you alluded to a little bit. There does it hurt. Does all that stress and all that rushed is hurt. The the work. I don't know. I don't think so. I feel like the audience is as stressed but in different reasons like we're all just sort of this high anxiety. I i think on the weekends. That's it's like your money gigs. So artistically maybe you're not going to come up with new tax maybe you might but you probably your just banging stuff out and trying to get off on time. Get out and get to the next thing on time. And then weeknights are a little more you got one spy you got to and there two hours apart. And they're in different burroughs. The crowd is weird because only weird people come out to the tuesday night show which is good. It's just fine. You need some weird people you want. You don't want every crowd to be date night from new jersey. Which is friday and saturday. Yeah that's new jersey est. I told you before. I consented to this. Podcast.

Html real coding languages but back then if he just knew and f. html to throw page together you get work like twenty five dollars an hour. I was paid in ninety nine to work for a couple of media companies. So that was my job in manhattan. Which i couldn't believe i was. I had a job in manhattan and and then in ada would do spots and so i just thought well let me. Just stay here for a year or two or whatever and just you know. Get my clause in the scene and become part of the scene So that was my. That was my goal. And then i kept up. Some road works. I went and lose my long set chops. I guess but mostly i. I tried to turn myself from a road comic to a new york city comic. Yeah which is so different and it's single-aisle and it was people. Can you make a living as a new york city comic at the same level that would be as as a road comedy. I mean if you're working weekends. I think you can make enough money. If you're you know you're in rent stabilized housing. Like i mean you have to work every weekend and you have to be one of those comics that gets like six eight spots on friday and saturday and then you just boom boom boom and it's exhausting but there's couple little cash from each one. Yeah yeah I don't know many that only do that. Though that everyone tries to balance it out with roadwork and you know if you lose a clever to if the booker changes or someone gets annoyed with you said you have no income. Is your cat every week you find out that week. If you're going to be making money you know. It's a comedy because usually avails her down a week in advance. So it's sounds so like.

I started getting more work as standard. I didn't like move to la like everybody did like my class. I stayed back. And maybe it was about kerr tourist. But i i do feel like i got. I got those teenage years in my twenties with my dad. So that was that was pretty. That's that's pretty important and especially if it worked out that way. I mean it would affect if you'd stuck around for seven years and you didn't. You didn't have much fun with him. Yeah yeah yeah did you. Did you get along a lot. Better with your dad than with your mom. Yeah you know. I mean i think the mother daughter relationships really really tricky really tricky. And you know my mom was probably a little in emotionally invasive. And i'm still like she died a year ago and i'm still trying to understand who she was. What at all. What what our relationship was you know what i mean. She's not here like room to evaluate a little bed and you know her intentions. Were really good if you know her you everyone else in her family. The execution wasn't great. Yes yeah well. It is kind of like especially since you're a mother you do end up kind of feeling like well.

We have my ex wife and i have a boy and a girl in. I definitely think that there's something there's just less clutter in the emotional relationship between me and my daughter and between her and my son you know it all gets the tunnel to different ages shakes all up anyway. So who knows. I do feel like your head a boy. I have a son so i don't i think the part of the parent that wanna do over in their life they they apply to the same gender child you know.

What happened in college did swim. Ucla for a year but he dropped down my freshman year. I think the buildup of stuff with my old coach. And then i had some unchecked bulimia. That was like out of control when he went to college. It was one of those things ram like soon as they get away from my parents or i suze away from the house and go to college. I'm sure this will stop. And of course. The hours to the point of where i wasn't i was just going to swim practices and then staying in my dorm room and you know get eating and getting rid of food the entire time so we're going down the toilet now and then again i was like right. I'm just going to drop out. And i'm going to get this under control and we'll be back in three months and then i never came up so i might still be enrolled at ucla insurance. You'd be bills.

You're you're not really catching it Rick i wanna say like i'm. I'm kind of making fun of notes. Through thomas notre dame was a fifteenth century. French versa. Fire the who wrote these These trains And at one point he says something about his sister or something. It's almost like hitler a lot of stuff could be seen as potentially true but listen. We need understand that prophesying. The future god can do that but the dark side can do that too so if you just want information you don't care where it comes from. Hey you know the devil and his minions are happy to provide you with secret knowledge as long as you give them. They're your eternal soul. That's all they ask. So when you're dealing with somebody like notre damase. I would never suggest that. I think much of him. In fact what i would do is make fun of him by calling kevin mccullough votes predominance so i am in fact not praising notre thomas as much as i am kind of teasing anybody who thinks that he's taking seriously and kevin mccullough by the way Far from being disgraced by that appalachian. He is honored by it. Okay you're honored than anything in his life beyond his marriage. His children being called votes domicile. His number one thing now see. I saw a different side of him because when he was in the green room after this last interview people can watch on. He was weeping. I mean he's this grown man because he's so honored by this honorific tears and that's what it is. Here's a weeping. He's like eric and chris. Thank you thank you.

"And he had a very close relationship with president clinton as well. So i think belly always tried to build. Bridges did people and and to point them did jesus and he would no matter who they were or what their lifestyle was or what the meaning engaged in. He would try to help them. And of course. That's i mean. Really what is it an evangelism. you know. We have to enter people's world. How can we influence people if we don't talk to people and if you want to take your patient applied to billy and he was attacked because the interface with all kinds of people he would have liberal clergyman sip on his platform catholic priest on his platform. People would criticize him but the key is what did he say. Because if you're meeting with these people in union in you engage them in conversations about christ and about the word of god that's the whole point of evangelism and to engage them. You must talk to them. Well this is why i mean. Obviously my earnings knows. I was joking. But that's the problem. Today is that it's very selective judging right well. So people apply a different Different standard to people who have associated with trump as though that implies that you approve of his past i'll bet he doesn't himself approve of his past so very little big race today. And the reason billy graham is such an icon is because he was a symbol a living symbol of that kind of grace To be somebody willing to meet with trump and with barack obama and with their everybody he he didn't play that game. And that's a sad to me that we've gotten so divided. I hope we can go back there. Greg because i know that you can never share the good news of jesus unless you live that way unless it's not about judging people but about sharing the the love of lord When you wrote this book I assume because you own brothers have made these other films. You're planning to make a documentary about this book as well. None of this. Let me just kind of go back to what you said earlier. 'cause it's an interesting point. I read a barn pool that was done. It said that ninety five percent of nonbelievers would like to have a conversation with a believer if they could speak to them without being judged and i found that interesting. Because you know when you look at jesus with the woman at the well. He was very patient with her and there was a lot of give and take a lot of exchange there and then ultimately called her out for sin but then he gave her the truth the answer and she believed in him so. I think that it's an important thing to be a good listener. When you're sharing your faith the best form of evangelism is not a monologue. It's a dialogue. Were you listen and then respond fun. But no we're not at this moment. This is not made into a documentary film. That could happen very easily. But still we're hopefully going to start filming something we've talked about for jesus revolution this year. Oh i forgot about that my well. If you do fill in the billy graham thing i wanna play george beverly shea. I'm saying that now. Okay so you can pray about it. Is that okay. I i think that. I really believe he play the role of george beverly shea and i will freak you out. People will just be charles templeton to roll. Thank you Well look i just. I love the idea that you're doing all these things. We're gonna go to a break folks. I'm talking to my friend. Pastor greg laurie. The book is billy graham. The man i knew. Don't forget folks go to neutral. Medics dot com. Please and use the code eric. For twenty percent off of them right back loneliness john stone dry. Wow that was that mugsy reading over the top or what. You're chewing the carpet. There i was. I was really i was just. I was just I i left it all on the field album. I had nothing left to give. Oh man i got nothing left to give got a whole couple of segments. We gotta fill. And i'm just emotionally drained man. You know what. Now's the time to do an ask. Metaxas segment people right in and they have questions and asked metaxas or technically should be axe. Metaxas is where you read the questions. And i try to answer them. Let's try it. Yeah and we're going to combine it a little later on with a listener rights time powerful segments vary probably shouldn't be combined they're so powerful your hats ladies and gentleman here. We go the i ask. Metaxas question comes into us from brad somewhere in america or the world or the universe similar brad. We are huge fans. never add. this is brad is writing. We are huge fans written in all caps while we are visiting greece in september. Do you have any recommended history books or biblical readings before we go. That's easy yeah no okay. That's a necklace. let's move on. Okay ben right right okay. We're yard moving on dear misdemeanor. Metaxas he calls mr. I am writing to you to ask a question. Neither didn't have to write that. But he did. When will your sequel to seven women being released. Okay most people. I wrote a book called seven men. Yes then i wrote a book called seven women. Then i was gonna write a book called seven drag icons share lies minelli joan crawford bette davis but thomas nelson didn't want to publish it. It was too controversial. So i thought okay. Why don't i just do a sequel to seven man. I'll call at seven more men. Okay so i did. And then i said of course i'm gonna do seven more women but thomas nelson and zondervan. I think they got cold feet because sequels they say don't sell as well so i don't know if i'm gonna do i mean look i know i'm going to write the book In fact it's more than half written but When we publish seven more women is an open question. Seven more men came out last year during kovic so it probably didn't sell as well even as as we thought that's the problem with cova so try to launch a book not during a global pandemic. That's just the tip of advice from a longtime writer yay and that was the only problem with kovic. That was the that my book didn't do as well as expected what actually people read seven men and seven women and they want more and seven more men. Is that book seven. More women We will publish it. We just need to find the right publisher And or you know what. I would publish it myself because so many people keep asking me about it. I'm getting sick of it. I'm thinking. I just wanna go here. It is and. I can't do that until i finished writing. So thanks for for asking yes and write an email to your favorite publisher and ask them why they're not publishing it. That's honestly. I can't wait to get it out there people. I'm not kidding. All around the country they love these books and That's all say great now. This next question is terrific. Because yesterday or the day before we had kevin mccullough on and you call him votes through domino's chris came up with that great name. But you use it all the time this listener named rick says i like listening to your program however i wonder why you disgrace kevin mccullough by calling him notes. Stra dominates no stress dominance. It's actually votes through dome. But no stir. Dominance was a false prophet. Who had a few wild guesses cloaked invade terminology. That could be interpreted as accurate prophecies by an interpreter biased in his favor. Just wondering well. Rick brings up a very very important issue. Unfortunately this is not that important issue. No this is a kind of a silly thing he says why would i disgraced. Kevin By calling him notes drew thomas first of all. I don't call him notes..

Laurie how are you. It's called a jean jacket. Thank you very mud. Buff waistcoat buff waistcoat. We'll wait a minute. What is that The tri corner hat with the cockaded. And the no no. I'm sorry that's wrong year. That's why you need to watch video. Because they would not know this if they had not technically the term for the hat you're wearing i realize is a busby Yes the horse guard at buckingham palace. They were busby's well. Listen gregg your pastor in california your friend of mine so my instinct of course is to joke unto death. So i'm going to try to shut up and be be a normal host you ever in a lot of books So your your pastor but you you write these amazing books. Tell us about the three books you've written and the new one about billy graham. What is this. What are they called the series. What's it called. well we call them basically icons of faith and So basic lamb looking that the lives of interesting people. I didn't set out to write three books on notable people. But it started with steve mcqueen. And i'd always heard them. Mcqueen had become a christian later in his life. But i wasn't sure that was true so it started with the google search steve mcqueen christian and i started finding a lot of information about his life. His passenger was mentioned. So i thought i wonder if this guy leonard dewitt that pastor steve mcqueen is still alive will as it turns out. Leonard was alive and well. In fact i'd met him earlier didn't even realize who he was so starting with leonard. I begin to discovered this incredible story of the legitimate real conversion of mcqueen. Who is at that moment in time. The number one movie star and the world. I mean this would be like if. I don't know who to compared to brad pitt. George clooney are leonardo dicaprio or tom. Cruise came to christ. And and we're talking about it. And so i met steve's widow. She helped me with this story. Details right and so. It became a book. Steve mcqueen this ovation of an american icon also became a documentary film. Then i can johnny cash and people at asked me if you ever wrote another. What would you write it on. I said probably johnny cash. He's such a colorful character. Wait a minute wait a minute. He's not colorful. He's the man in black. He's the until colorful. Did you know coloreds occasionally. But i just wanna tell you since you and i joke so much. I have to tell you this because you weren't there twice. I've interviewed rabbi jonathan. Cahn who always wears black and both times. I have put the question to him. Are you the jewish johnny cash. And the first time he said no and the second time he said. Oh yeah yeah. I am but anyway a lot of people don't know this johnny cash always wore black. That's a whole story to. That's that's another very important book that you wrote. At what point did you decide okay. it's going to be a trilogy. And i'm gonna write about billy graham. When did when did this occur to you. Yeah well and by the way. The johnny cash book is being made into a documentary right now with the erwin brothers are working with a conscious state. Can billion parts with roseanne. He can give me a part in this. Because i'm trying to break in acting. I can play june carter cash as a teenager. You don't think i can do that. You don't think the acting child. I'm gonna make reese witherspoon as a point of reference so you could start there. I think you could be you have to think about that. But anyway it's documentary film so it carlin perkins as a teenager. They go call perkins. And what song did he is. he is known for. Call perkins I don't remember blue suede shoes I was say blue shoes is that that's the one see anyway. So china. okay. So billy graham billy. Sorta like the glue. The two stories because stephen interesting encounter with billy. He didn't know billy but later in his life. After stephen come to christ he found out he had cancer. He was unable to get any kind of treatment. There was nothing they can do from the hospitals here so we actually went for some very an orthodox treatments done in mexico. And he requested that his pastor leonard dewitt would try to get hold of billy. Graham khazei would like to meet billy. Billy very gracious took time out of his schedule. Met steve on the tarmac whereas jet was to take him to mexico they had prayer together. And then steve misplaced as bible and billy gave his divas personal bible which steve took with him. The surgery was successful but unfortunately he died in recovery and they came into the recovery room and steve was holding the bible. Billy gave him in the last words. Steve said to billy were. I'll see you in heaven. And of course billy was a good friend of johnny cash The would vacation together. They fish together their wives or friends. And johnny play a lot of billy's crusade. So i thought he's the glue in the story and to me. He's kind of the coolest of all of them. If i can use that word. Steve was the king of call as he was called. Johnny was called the godfather of but billion my estimation was the coolest of them all because of the impact. He had on men like that but people around the world some well-known some unknown We have to think of what You said that you said steve was the was the what of cool the king of the king of cool and and johnny cash was what the god cool so what would be the preecha of cool. How would you say he would be. Maybe the coolest of the cool the and because to me cool is justified this authenticity. Its unique. You know you're a trailblazer. You're a groundbreaker. You're someone that thinks outside of the lines that people think in new are willing to take risks and you're your own person. You don't follow culture. You try to influence culture. So i think billy was. All of those. Things are more because he. He was so innovative. You know when we think ability think of the older elder statesman lion in winter version of graham. That could be carved into mount rushmore. But i spent a lot of time exploring the young brash fun-loving innovative billy who did so many things before anybody else did them. He was the kingdom media. Long before howard stern claimed the title. Of course you're the king of all media now erin but thank you for eric.
