"You got junk read sixteen member. I can do some serious damage that the kingdom of darkness for the kingdom of god. We need to be prepared to share the gospel with everyone. But what if that person who needs jesus. The most is not really a friend. More of an enemy we'll pastor. Greg answers that question in just a moment. Everybody greg laurie here. You know my uncle fred. Jordan had one of the first christian. Tv programs out there. It was called church in the home. I remember watching it as a little boy. When i was living with my grandparents while we have church in the home for you every weekend it's called harvest at home and you can find it at harvest dot org. We have worship and a message from god's word so join us this weekend for harvest at home at harvest doddle. Well today pastor. Greg is passing along practical insight on how we can share the hope of christ most effectively and he continues his council now number three. Where should we share the gospel. Where should we show the gospel. Simple answer wherever wherever go into all the world freaks gospel. That's a christ said let's personalize it go into all of your world and preach the gospel go into your family and preach the gospel go into your workplace and preach the gospel go into your neighborhood and preached the gospel go to your campus in preach the gospel go into all of your world. Think of it this way we call it fringe realism frenjal. Ism simple way to remember fragile as f. r. a. n. f. is for go to your friends are go to your relatives a go to your associates. And go to your neighbors friends. Eliza you know someone named fran out there right. Take the gospel to them. That's what we're called to do now. Maybe you have a neighbor. That really irritates you. And you don't want to take the gospel of them. In fact there might be someone. You're thinking of right now that you sort of think of as an enemy. Well i don't want to share. Jesus with them wait a second. Wouldn't that be the perfect person to share with did not jesus tell us to love our enemies and would that not be an amazing way to turn an enemy into a potential friend. Was abraham lincoln that said quote the best way to destroy an enemy is to make him a friend and quote. That's true but listen. If you don't want to take the gospel to someone you dislike here not alone. The prophet jona comes to mind. remember him. god told him to go to the nation of niniveh and to preach to them and jona flat out refused. Why well the ninna bites the enemies of israel and they happen to be known for their exceptional cruelty. There were almost like the precursors to the nazis and some ways even worse they were done only kill the people that they conquered but they would skin them alive and they would take their skulls and stack them up as monuments to their horrid accomplishments. This is a city that was so wicked. God said it's like they're an overflowing trash. Can they stink to high heaven. So god says did join a golden in uva in preach them. Joni didn't wanna do that. Why because he was a patriotic israelite and then invites were the enemies of israel. And he reason if i go to them they might repent and god will spare them. But if i don't go to them. They won't repent and god will destroy them and that's one less enemy. We have to deal with so he got on a boat going in the opposite direction. Instead of going to niniveh as god commanded he went to a place called tarshish he chicken down joyner was the original chicken of the sea. So here's what happened. God said go. Jonas said no god said oh and he swallowed by this sea creature and they're inside of the belly of this piece. He saw pinocchio no wrong story so for three days and three nights. He defied god's seaweed wrapped around him fish smacking him in the face humidity. Like you can't believe. He refused to break pilots so they can't take it anymore. Alright lord. i'll do what you want me to do. And the lord directed the great fish to regurgitate jonah on the shores of niniveh. Talk about having a dramatic entrance. Dinovite down at the beach gets some raise checking out the surf. It's really nice all of a sudden. Well what does that. A boat butts was. Way of thing is huge. He comes up for. Hey everybody joni here forty days and then we'll be overthrown. Whatever dude you stink so bad. Just keep your distance. So johnny began. Is little ministry warning people. So joanna was repentant and now regurgitated he believed now he was barbed he was righteous. And yes he was ralph. That's right right at the place. He did not want to go to. So here's my question to you. Is there someone that the lord has been nudging you to share the gospel with and you have been saying. No one of my favorite stories on the bible is the story of haddassah. She was the great beauty queen as it turns out and the nation of persia the queen was thrown out so the king wanted a new queenie. Hey best way to do it. Let's find the prettiest girls in the kingdom and i'll pick one of those and so all the beautiful young ladies were brought into the palace there and some were selected to be sort of presented to the king and they went you know the whole treatment and got all the beauty treatments and so forth and and they're finally brought out and the one that shines above all the others was the jewish girl haddassah. I think it wasn't just outward beauty. I think it was that inequality to and we know her better as queen esther so she became the queen. This is that fairy tale it would have ended with these words and the happily ever after there might have been a couple of talking animals or something but this isn't a fairy tale. This is a true story of the nation of israel suddenly a billon emerges more sinister than any child story with produce. He has a plan to exterminate the jews. His name was hayman he gets the king to unwittingly signed a decree that if you are jewish you will be put to death not realizing as he signed it that the king was effectively sentencing his own beautiful queen esther to death as well. Well let's know about a bench. She's living in the lap of luxury. She's being pampered. She's up there in the palace and so our uncle mordecai wants to bring it to her attention and he goes and stands outside of the palace. He's covered at sackcloth and ashes. Like hello esther things are not so good out here for us in your people and some it says your uncle mordecai out there and he's all dirty. Well here send them some clean clothes talk about missing the point so mordechai center a message. And here's what he says. If you keep quiet at a time like this deliverance and relief of the jews will arise from some other place. But you and your relatives will die. Listen who knows. Perhaps you were made queen for such a time as this loose paraphrase esther. This is your wakeup call. You're in a position to potentially save your people. You don't do it. god will find someone else. Say you what greg. that's nice. What does that have to do with evangelism. Did you ever stop and think that you are where you are right now because god puts you there because maybe you don't like your circumstances.

"But we find a kind of anger in many atheists and certainly in Marx and others That doesn't seem to be cool and rational on merely anti faith in God, But that seems to be demonically inspired. That seems to be Satanic rather than merely atheistic. Another atheism seems to be often a cover for some kind of Satanism. And when you talk about wanting to destroy everything, obviously, that spirit is alive. In some parts of America today.

"Welcome to probably science. My name is Andy. Would I'm mccutchen. Thank you thanks for remembering we have. We're pinned down. Let's just jump straight in this. 'cause this is some one we've won it for a long time. He's always bouncing between New York and La. We worked together a while back on comedy knockout but he since lowered himself from that great height eight to the multiple. Emmy winning marvelous. Mrs Mazel is no. God dishwashers Hey. Nah Hey the wonderful to be here. I'm sorry about the rapid decline New Yorker in it. No I mean when you start off on a program like comedy knockout. It's all downhill from there. It is oh so I just kind of accepted my reality and tried to pick up the pieces. How you doing? I'm doing great lot of things happening in your life since so you lost a whole lot. There's a ring on your finger. I married married married expecting a child but again biggest news finally got on probably science rank them in order marriage and child would be retied slightly lower than guest on probably science because this episode is forever. Exactly exactly that should be like if there is a podcast the alliance that should be the fucking slogan this cast is forever. I mean it's going to be out there some diamonds. Just the Christmas of podcasting. You have a boy just announce it instagram. It's public knowledge and it's on this podcast now. Yes we're having a baby boy doing may have you pick a name is the name of secret we have picked a name. The name is kind of like. We're we're not going around advertising it but esther has a joke about it so if anyone goes and sees her performed on so it's as much of a secret is comedians can keep you know it's like we're already building material off of it yet. That right I'll I'll tell you is my name is Noah. Her name is esther and we are keeping with the biblical trend and it's slightly early more Jewish than no arrester so it's it's an aggressively Jewish name EXE- Keel. No but it was nebuchadnezzar there. It is Desert Gardens to you may twentieth. Just GonNa start going through the different champagne bottles at the people who are eight years old or have shipping lane for them. Yeah yeah no Nebuchadnezzar and Magnum. We're actually making sure people pronounce it with the Hebrews. Were going to be NABUCHODONOSOR. I didn't realize that esther was even a the name. I didn't know that Kramer Queen Esther the poor the poor story more than mcgilla than the Torah but still with Jewish Pantheon. emporiums like the Jewish thanksgiving kind of. Well it's kind of celebrate like the Jewish Halloween so everyone dresses up. Yeah I know there's a there's an analogous thing and there's a Jewish version Jewish burning man right living I would say Suco is Jewish Thanksgiving Harvest Festival. But you live outside and look at makeshift thing. Right yeah so if you have cool Jewish parents and it's burning me I guess. I think we'll be recording. Sometimes my neighbors would be living in that in the back in the day. When when did you actually live outside in that you know my orthodox you have to be too I I mean we? We had a sucker in our backyard every year. Like I grew up observing. SUCO weedon sleep out in the second we would just have our meals out there but yeah the the most religious is people sleep out there we would just have dinner. Seems Pretty Fun just like a family camping trip in the yard I separate for the religious part of it. I grew up in Denver. So it'd been a little too koker sleep out there that's right. I could pick your brain because you had a denver wedding. Did I'M GONNA be at some point in the New Year having a Denver wedding. Oh Yeah Muslims. Thank you say from Denver she is. Yeah Oh well we had a wonderful time. I Ne- needs as a photographer names. Caterers all right. Let's take advantage of this medium right here on probably science or probably Ju- getting married. I was wondering like how many because we've got some we. He got some solid hookups. In the past I'm sure we listeners photographers in Denver. If anyone makes suits or wedding dresses I will have. We give you references to any people people that you need in the industry because we're very happy with all of our vendors but more importantly I will tell you that as far as destination weddings go because most of our friends are not from Denver. They are all. It's a city city that people are happy to travel to. It's one of those ones where they're like excited to get to go to Denver for variety. Yeah we're planning outside activities for the family. Well we look at a whole. We had a mountain. I tend to guide but but on the top of the things to do. Here's a great dispensary. Because you're going to get that question a million times from Chico our age especially in the comedy how many community we'd yet just go here. Worry they're going to have too much. You'RE GONNA have to leave it behind when you fly home. You knows interesting though is before the wedding we called called one of our favorite dispensers and basically ask. Can we get a discount code or can we get like joints for the gift bags for our friends and we're happy to say you provide the sponsorship. And they they were like we would love to but because we can't prove that everyone consuming the we'd be twenty-one legal liability so we can't be involved in any kind of event promotion promotion like that you wouldn't be able to get donated booze for things either but you can. I mean I doubt maybe I don't know I doubt if you called coors and we're like can we get a keg. Well Yeah but I've I've heard of cases where people have like in the early days of PABST when they were when they were starting to get their hypocr thousands. I had a friend who would throw parties and then just email PABST. It'd be like hey it's like a party. Do you want it to be a PABST branded party. They would just set a beer. Yeah oddly enough. The wheat industry is more of a stickler for I guess Hey Nah let's get into firstly. We like to ask this before we get into the stories. What if anything thing is? Your background is science. My background in science is fascination but not success like I. I was always a good student. I'm very good in English. Math history all that science. I've always struggled with love. Biology Chemistry physics. Don't do well with the academically. It's been my it's been a rough spot for me academically but I'm fascinated by tonight's that's cool. That's that puts you in this up a third of August in terms like people. We definitely had a lot of guests who just horrified I by the subject to really put off. No I love it like I'm I'm intrigued to hear what stories you have coming up. I'm just not good at understanding or speaking technically about. Yeah which is totally fine. Well should we just get straight into a story. We've got a bunch of Stories that were sent in by multiple listeners. Sometimes we we have a story that comes in. That's right in our sweet spot and listeners seemed to know that and they're like you guys are definitely going to talk about this evolve and spiny counselors involved in so many people's at this story as party one million and Cannibal aunts trapped in a Soviet nuclear bunker have escaped every part of that sending sounds correct by the way just sends with US recorded. I finished watching watching shirt Chernobyl because watched it. I have watched it. Holy Shit. I don't know how it escaped me until now how bad it was. I thought it was a bencher. Noble crisis averted. Not The show. Do Right the the tragic like I was alive for that and I remember you know the stories here. I thought it was like Oh man this could have been really bad. No it was really bad. It was. Yeah Yeah I. I didn't watch it because I heard people talking about who are all praising what a good show was saying like how depressing and watch it was. I don't really get scared of scary movies. He's like I love horror movies. They don't actually scare me or stick with me. This kept me up at night. So Y- there were few very brutal episodes Anyway you know that story but it's somewhat related with your noble answer. Nobody has a colony course. I'm on the Newsweek article. Sent him by Chris Nelson Awesome but a bunch of people sent in versions of its. Thank you as a colony of up to one million cannibalize trapped in a nuclear bunker for years escaped say scientists in Poland. The ants dance. We had no food source of dead nest. Mates were first discovered in twenty thirteen and were found to be solely made up of wealth around meaning they could not reproduce how how the numbers grew so large was a mystery in a study published in the wall. I've strange word here very strange. Would the Journal of claim I'm an OP research. which that's the one that he I I I need? A high monotonous origins plays is that the is that the scientific where for ends I. Don't what is I'm googling this as we speak speak in real time. It is a large order of instant insects comprising the Soul flies wasps bees and ants. Okay all right. I wonder if it's somehow related related in terms of like what. What's The an analogy? You keep going with this. I'M GONNA investigate highlands females Asia females typically have a special lovie positive inserting eggs into hoes. So places that are otherwise inaccessible. So I guess yeah if any if any of our listeners out there always shelling eggs in places. They shouldn't be then. You might be a High Tourist Jeff Foxworthy. Yeah school if you by the way. They're both related. Time in that part of it means membrane so the whole word means winged membrane or membrane wing obser- alike geico comfort for research as nell studied the colony to understand how functioned an instant an escape. Route disease his members would leave their home given the option. The team led by Walsh Alec Chipper Kofsky from the museum and his students. Zoology oggy and the Polish Academy of scientists scientists were carrying out a survey of bats leaving living in an abandoned Soviet nuclear bunker when they came across the woodlands living in an munition they nuclear weapons were once kept the ants had no access to the outside world and appeared to have come from a nest above that was positioned over ventilation pipe when the ants fell down the pipe they were entombed in the Bunka. Entombed sounds pretty intense jammed into Russian nuclear bunker. I love it I mean. I can't think of things rather investigate less that nuclear ants in Russia. Everything about it. Yeah this this isn't a site that's like unsafe for humans ends to visit or anything it's not like is this. A nuclear bunker is a bunker that a shelter from nuclear activity right rather than a bunker full of nuclear stuff I thought this one was a storage facility for nuclear weapons was it. I'll let you check that out while I carry on with the story. However after returning to the site two years later scientists found the colony was not only still there eh had grown in numbers? This was despite that being no obvious. Food source no heat. No light a population estimate suggests there were hundreds of thousands. If no one million living living in Bunka Antonoff to set up colonies in unusual places necessarily found in the chassis of a car inside a wooden box in complete darkness that could only be accessed by tiny skip at the base however no oh cases the answer able to come and go the masses of FORMICA. Police police net police I- Tanna I think Public Tina. How do you pronounce it? I think you're probably right now. Who knows trapped in the boat? I would definitely not pollute enough. Not No yeah that would be. That'd be my least favorite PRONUNCIA. None of us know out. Let's let's look that up in the second. This is lot of tricky words. A hanging and Google for Mike. APPLICA- workers trapped. The bugger. Had No choice. The team wrote through merely surviving and continuing their social tasks on the conditions set by the extreme environments in two thousand sixteen scientists found. The county was still there. The team set out to analyze. Behavior the install the boardwalk that led to another ventilation Asian pipe at the ants could use to escape the bunker a year later they return to the site to find. The county had almost completely vanished. The team inspected the corpses. They left behind and found bite marks and holes mostly mostly in the abdomen. This they evidence the answer eating and their deceased nest mates in order to survive. After being provided an escape route the ants appear to have made their way back to the original nest on falling down the original ventilation pipe. They able to make their way back. So the bunker was deserted survival and growth of the bunker county through the years without producing its own offspring was possibly owing was possible to continuous supply of new workers from the upper food. Follow from the. In the form of your brother that's from the upper nets and accumulation of corpses the team concluded the corpses served as an inexhaustible source of food which substantially allowed survival the ants trap down and otherwise extremely unfavorable conditions.

"Queen esther puts on her royal robes and i'm sure with great fear and trembling. She goes to the inner court of the royal palace. That's directly in front of the kings hall. She doesn't know if she will be executed immediately or she will be granted in favor when the king looks out because he can see from his throne and he sees esther standing in the court. His heart is pleased. He holds out to her. The gold sceptre that it was in his hand sparing her life so queen esther approached and touched the sceptre and the king is said to her. What is it queen esther. What is your request even up to half the kingdom. It will be given to you pleases. The king replied esther. Let the king together with heyman come tomorrow to a banquet that i have prepared for them. Oh oh jesus has set the trap now. She didn't come up with this plan by herself. She came up with this plan out of three days of fasting fasting and prayer where she could hear the word of god to her the raimo word of god. I'm sure initially when the lord said to her our invite the king and heyman she must have no i can't do that. How can i treat heyman with kindness and courtesy the lord said said doing the lord is working out his plan. There are times when god will tell us to do something. That seems utterly foolish but he's calling us to do it. When the word of god comes to you give this go here do do that obey quickly. The holy spirit's voice will be silenced in your life. If you rebel and do not do what he calls you to to do but if you do what he tells you you will be strengthened. You will be encouraged. Encouraged and god will meet you so the king says look go get him in right now. This banquet is being served. I wanna go eat with esther. So the king and heyman go to the bank with esther. They're you're drinking wine at the banquet and after the meal is over and the king is happy. He says to esther okay now. So what is your petition. It will be request even up to half the kingdom. It will be granted. That's what they said when they really wanted to show favourite as somebody esther replies in the culture of that day she says my petition and my request is this if the king regards me with favor and if people.'. Pleases the king grant might petition and fulfill my request. Let the king and heyman come tomorrow to the banquet. I will prepare for them. <hes> then i will answer the kings question. She's being very very polite in that culture you. You don't just blurt out what you want. You wait you go a second time and you ask ask again so him and goes home. He's happy he's being honored by. Both the king and the queen he's he's the only one invited to this banquet but as he's going out of the palace he sees mordechai at the kingsgate who who does not bow down to him doesn't even acknowledge his presence and he's filled with rage against mordecai so he goes home and he calls his gather and his wife and he boasts to them him about his mighty wealth about his power about how the way the king has honored him he boasts about his being elevated above all the other nobles and officials and then he adds on the only person queen esther invited to accompany the king to the banquet she gave dave. She has invited me along with the king again tomorrow. He is so puffed up and so happy he is. The man honored honored above all other men. He doesn't know that god has trapped him. You see sometimes. It looks like we're on the bottom and the enemy has gained the upper hand. Were being wiped out. We don't have what we need to have. Everything everything is looking very very dark. God has a plan trust him with his plan. Don't quit sometimes when everything is looked very dark. I've wanted to quit and then the lord comes in the strength of the holy spirit and says. I have a plan for your life. Don't quit a member what he said to joshua be strong great courage. Wanna see that to you today. Almost named this broadcast be a strong of great courage. Don't quit that god workout is plan your life and then mordechai talks to us or heyman talks to his friends he says but all of this gives me no satisfaction as long as i see that june mordechai sitting there at the kingsgate in the wife and the friends say don't worry about got it just have a gallows built seventy five feet high and ask king in the morning to have more to kaya hanged on it then go to the king with the dinner winner with esther and be happy so he's delighted. He immediately orders the workmen to go to work to build a seventy five foot hanging place for mordecai. That thing was visible all over town home that night. The lord's hand begins to intervene again. He can't can't sleep. The king can't sleep so he tosses and turns and finally he says look bring bring into me the chronicles. I wanna read some chronicles. I want to know what's happening so in that they read to him about wrote mordechai and revealing the assassination attempt against the king insurgencies asked what honor and recognition has more decay i received for for this. Nothing has been done for him. The attendant answered and the king says well who's in the court. This is the early hours of the morning benun sleep all night. He's been troubled. I love it when god troubles us. He wants us the prey to cry out to him so the attendant looks and heyman is just entered entered. The court to ask for more decay is life to hang him on the gallops. Will the king mm said to heyman which should be done for the man. The king delights to honor. He's so full of himself. He sure that he is the one that king getting with desire to honor. Pardon me and the king answers have them bring a royal robe. You do everything for him. You're saying so more to heyman and once the royal robe brought a horse with royal crest on it. He wants to be ridden and led all over town with a crier saying thing. This is the man the king desires to honor he wants he wants sue to see this but then the king says go at once get the row. Get the horse do as you have suggested for mordecai. The jew who sits at kingsgate do not neglect anything you've recommended and suddenly haymond is broken. God's hand has begun to close the trap. This is the triumph bryant of esther heyman knowing that he will lose his position of honor if he does not quickly obey in fact he knows he'll lose his life if he does not quickly obey so he robes mordechai he rides them through the city streets proclaiming reclaiming before him. This is what is done for the man. The king delights to honor this this. This is an important immortal. He goes back sitting at the kingsgate like he was before it was done but ayman he rushes home. His head is covered covered in grief. He tells his friends and his wife what has happened and they say since mordechai. Before whom you're downfall has started is of jewish origin. You cannot stand against him. You will surely come to ruin and while they're saying this to him. The unix from the king arrived arrived. Take him to the bank with queen esther so the king and heyman in esther the seventh chapter dine with queen esther and as their drinking wine on the second day. The king asked queen esther. What is your petition. It will be given you what is your request even up to half the kingdom it will be granted and queen queen esther answers if i have found favour with you oh king and if it pleases your majesty grant made my life. This is my petition and spare my people. This is my request for. I and my people have been sold for destruction and slaughter an annihilation. If we had merely been sold as male and female slaves flavor i would have kept quiet because no such distress would be justified before the king.

"The jews had the upper hand over those who hated them who threatened them. The jews assembled in their cities and no one could sand up against them because of the nobles of the provinces the satraps the governor's the kings administrators all helped the jews because fear of mordecai had seized them them mordechai was prominent in the palace his reputation spread throughout the provinces he became more and more powerful and the a juice struck down all their enemies with a sword killing and destroying them and they did what they pleased to those who hated them. Just in the citadel of sousa the jews killed and destroyed five hundred men they also killed in the suns that ten sons of amen and hung them now. The king said the queen esther the jews have killed five hundred men and the ten sons of haymond. What have they done in the rest of the provinces. What is your request. It will be granted to you. She says if it pleases the king give the jews and sousa permission to carry out their days addict tomorrow also and let hayman's ten sons be hanged on the gallows. That's a public shaming of of them. So the king gave the command the next the kingdom. The then began again to celebrate and that's where the celebration of the param began to be celebrated by the jews even as it is every every year even to this day now king xerxes in all of his power and mike uh with the greatness of mordecai to which the king had raised him. They're all recorded in the books of the persia in media. Now i look at this story and i say why was she not content. Why was she not content to simply have her her life and the let it go. I want to be very very specific now about the parable. She was not content to stop halfway there. She pushed through all the way to victory. She did not take a middle ground. She gave heyman no no ground to destroy the jews she took full advantage of her right as the queen of this empire to push all all the way through so that there was no longer a threat against the jews. Everybody knew don't play with the queen. She is all all powerful with king xerxes and now mordechai is the ruling man in the realm next to the king and he is active as an administrator. Do do not threaten the jews or you will die in the same way we as christians now. I'm using that term because i wanna speak now to those men and women who have received jesus christ as their lord and savior and if i were to ask you are you a christian you would answer immediately. Yes i am but you have only taken the first step. You have never pushed on the second step where you have gained total victory victory. Someone wrote to me this last week and they said you're a false teacher and they quoted a passage of scripture to prove that i'm a false teacher. Let me read it for you. I john the first chapter verse eight. If we claim to be without sin we deceive ourselves elves and the truth is not in us now this dear person not understanding biblical truth not understanding that you must read everything in context takes that as his statement to justify continuing to walk in sin before almighty god he is refusing and has been taught such by the sending christian heresy the nostra schism of our day. Hey taught by those such as better not name the names the most popular teachers on radio today they teach that if you sin all you'll lose are some rewards in heaven but you'll still go to heaven. You can't lose your salvation. They're lying to you. They would've told queen esther. Don't push through to the second level and clean out the devil. I want to say to you. The story of queen esther is a parable teaching us to push through to total victory and jesus jesus. I spoke with the dear brother yesterday. He said i'm following jesus but i'm not completely there yet now. Let me be very clear with you. If you say that. Don't begin into imagine that it's a question of christian growth. It's not there is a place. We are called to dwell. Oh where we have total victory over sin to where there is no longer any any residual sin in our systems in our hearts in our minds we are cleansed by the blood we are set free by jesus christ. Show you this in the scriptures. I want you to push through total victory and jesus. It is not again. It is not a matter of personal growth in jesus. You can't go to seminars and workshops and gained strategies to be successful in following jesus. This is the work of repentance. It is a work of grace. It is by faith alone in the blood of jesus. It is a work that he must do in us and for us. Our work is to repent and to invite him to come and do this work in us and he will do it. He will cleanse us of of all sin. The blood of jesus is not like the blood of bulls and goats in hebrews ten where the blood of bulls and goats this covers over our sin until we die. That's not what the blood of jesus does the blood of jesus cleanses and washes so that there is no longer any sin remaining now. Let's read the passages of scripture. Don't believe greenlee believed the word of god we'll go to several passages and then we'll go to what jesus said because he is atonement all oh how i love jesus his mercy and his grace his love their beyond my understanding never have oh. I've been loved. I've been loved by jesus. I find it beyond me to even talk about right.
"queen esther" Discussed on National Prayer Chapel, Pilgrim's Progress
"His ugly head. This is all being played out as god has ordained it. Esther would not have chosen to go to the palace us. She would not have chosen to become the queen but she was willing to surrender to the direction of her god and so she was lead in pass she did not know. Have you ever awakened in the early hours of the morning as i have many times and had a heart distraught concerned and you don't know how you're going to make it. You don't know how you can make it financially. You don't know how you can make you could emotionally through another day of attacks and bitter trials by the devil and as you lay okay in your bed and your mind fastens on these terrifying things in your heart you press through and you see jesus i trust you. It's a new day. I want your name to be honored by what i do and what i say in how act i don't know how i'm going to make but i'm trusting you jesus to carry me through because i can't carry myself. I'm totally dependent upon you jesus. I i know jesus has brought me time after time to that place to test and see ed wood is in my heart he did the same to the children of israel over and over. He tested them it over and over. He tried them to see what they would do. Hebrews bruce the third chapter verse seven so as the holy spirit says today. If you here is voice do not harden your hearts. I would change that. I would say this morning running in the early hours. If you hear his voice do not harden your heart he goes on as you did in the rebellion during the time the testing in the desert where your father's tested and tried me for forty years they saw what i did that is why was angry with that generation and i said their hearts are always going astray. They have not known my ways so i declared an oath and my anger they shall never enter my rest. See two brothers that none of you has a sinful unbelieving heart that turns away from the living god but encourage one another daily as long as it's called today so that none of you may be hardened by sin deceitfulness. We have come to share in christ. If we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had i as has just been said today. If you hear his voice do not harden your hearts did you did in the rebellion who were they who heard in rebelled were they not all that moses led out of egypt and with whom was the angry angry for forty years was it not with those who sinned whose bodies fell in the desert to whom did god swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed so we see that they were not able to enter because of their unbe leaf therefore since the promise of entering his rest still stands let us be careful that none of you be found to a fallen all and short of it for we also have had the gospel preach to us just as they did but the message they heard was of no value to them because because those who heard did not combine it with faith will today in this broadcast. We're going to talk about what what needs to be combined with faith. If you're going to enter into the rest of god the lord some time ago said to me the rest in me ray first time he had ever used my personal name when speaking to me rest in me ray i know that means i in the early hours of the morning when i waken and fear grips my heart and i say i don't know how i can move forward. I don't know here's this block and this block and this block and lord. There's no way i can make it through this now. The question is will i walk an unbelieving belief and fear or will i stand by faith and trust jesus. I choose to trust him and i press on and i pressed through the lord said to me this morning. Push on through push on through. I immediately turned once. It's more to the story of esther. I wasn't sure that i should share this with you today but i am very confident now. It is the word of the lord to us. You remember the story we've covered it in the past three broadcasts heyman and now i'm going to give you esther as a parable heyman represents darkness he represents the devil and he's determined he will kill all of god's people. The devil is determined. He's going to kill l. u. He is determined he will utterly destroy you. So what do we do. Queen esther goes before the king she is accepted and heyman is hanged now. It seems that everything should be fine. Line now came out of the way she can be happy as queen but her heart is concerned for her people the people people in sousa and the people across the whole realm who are jewish there is a decree that they are to be utterly destroyed so now queen esther decides that she must once more go before the the king and risk her life. We find the story in esther. The eighth chapter king xerxes axes gave queen esther the estate of heyman. The enemy of the jews and mordechai came into the presence of the king for estra told him he was related to her. The king took off his signet ring which he had reclaimed from heyman and and presented it to mordecai and esther appointed him over hayman's estate the whole estate the tons of silver and gold old the home the properties everything the king gave to esther and she appoints mordechai as the head of of that property in all of that money all of the businesses he takes them over now esther verse i three again pleaded with the king falling at his feet and weeping this time she goes before the king not timidly she goes before the king and falls on the ground in front of him with weeping and she begs him to put an end to the evil plan of heyman that still in fact the king extends the golden sceptre she rises she stands before him and she behalf of the jews as seems best to you and seal it with the king signet ring for no document written in the king's name and sealed with the ring can be he looked at once. All of the royal secretaries were summoned and they rode out all of more decay is orders i to the jews to the set traps the governors and the nobles of the one hundred and twenty seven provinces stretching from india to kush these orders were written in the script of each province in the language of each people mordechai road in the name of of kings irks season sealed the dispatches with the king signet ring sent them by mounted couriers who wrote fast horses specially bred for royalty the kings addict granted the jews in every city the right to assemble protect themselves to destroy kill and annihilate any armed force of any nationality or province that might attacked them and their women and children and it was carried out mordechai left the king's presence wearing being royal garments of blue and white haymond was never given these royal garments he had a large crown of gold and a purple robe of fine linen and the city of susa held a joyous celebration for the jews it was a time of happiness and joy and gladness and honor in every province there was feasting and celebrating and many of the people of other nationalities became jews because fear of the jews had seized them.

"queen esther" Discussed on Pray the Word with David Platt
"Pre The word with David Platt is a resource from radical dot net esther chapter five verse two when the King Saw Queen Esther standing in the courtyard she found favor in his it is and the king held out the gold sceptre that was in his hand to Esther and esther approached and touch the top of the sceptre so here we see God's provision in response onto prayer and fasting in response to estrogen willingness to lay down her life to go see the king when the kings saw Queen Esther instead of casting her out he invites invites her and she found favor in his is this is evidence again. The name of God is not mentioned in the book of Esther but the fingerprints of God are all over this book and this is. One shining example she found favor in his eyes because God did this. You know this is one of the things I pray Mon life. I think about people people who don't know Christ and I'm trying to share the Gospel with I think about people groups in the world where the gospels not yet gone one of the things I pray for his favor not not favor so so that I can advance myself in someone else's is but favor so that there will be a hearing for the Gospel and pray for that and people groups not yet reached with the Gospel. I pray that his missionaries go that God will grant them favor that leaders in that people group that men and women in that people group would would look upon those who are bringing the good news the Gospel and grant them favor. See them in a favorable way and receive what they have to share so I think this is a good thing to pray Paul. When we get to the New Testament when he encourages or asks the church to pray for him he he praised the day would God would give favor that God would open doors for the Gospel through him the God would give him success in this work so let's let's pray for that now? God I pray for this my own life but not just life I pray this for every person who's listening as we have people in our lives that don't know Christ and our sphere of influence God. We pray that you would give favor in there. Is that so you would inclined him. Favorably toward us <hes> that you would do something that we can't control. We can't manufacture gotTA. We WanNa be faithful to live as salt and light. We want to be faithful to live. In a way that adorns the Gospel in a way that shows your love and your grace and your mercy your wisdom in our lives so help us help us and all those ways and as we live we pray more and more like Christ replay that you would it give favor that that leads to a hearing for the Gospel that leads to the accomplishment of your purposes so God we pray not for favor for own good so that will be light so that will be esteemed by others God. We want you to be esteemed by others. We want your name to be glorified. We WanNa be salt and lights and others may see us and give glory to you in heaven so we pray that you would give us favor that opens doors for the Gospel in God we pray the same for the spread of the Gospel around the world got among the Brahmin in Nepal. We've prayed for the Brahmin different countries. We pray specifically for the Brahmana Nepal no known followers of Jesus among this people group in Nepal please. Oh God 'cause your church to go to them. Raise up workers to take the gospel to them and give those workers favor. We pray in the eyes of the Brahmin the those.

Washing on. Marching on. Christ count, everything. But loss at the crown him king. We'll call sing the better of the cross. Ladies and gentlemen. Listen to this. Gus full message from exodus, chapter seventeen entitled, the first battle, the first battle of the first war, Israel, ever fought begins with the ominous words, then came I'm Elec the Melkite was a cousin tribe of Israel. Amyloid was the grandson of saw, he saw Jacob did not get along well together and their descendants did not get along either. Then came amyloid. Israel had escaped from Asia when the waters of the Red Sea parted. They passed over on dry ground or as Paul says in Corinthians. They were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea. And we're all tired the Moses in the cloud into the sea, and it all eat the same spiritual food did all the same spiritual drink while they're drunk from a spiritual rock, follow them, and the rock was Christ. Moses struck the rock with his rod at referendum and water came out. And then the first bettle began. Is it not true with us today when we became Christians leaving in Christ who died to save us? Repenting our sins. Passing through the waters of design for the remission of sins. And then the battle began then came Emily. Moses in his farewell address, reminded Israel, that Emelec had attacked the old infirm week and stragglers first later on king, Saul felon, his sword and try to kill himself. It was an Melkite the came and finished him off. It wasn't a malachite that hatched the plot to kill all the Jews in the world. Today's of Queen Esther. Even the apostle Peter became fair game for his malachite when he left behind. And followed. Jesus of are off and denied three times he ever knew Jesus those in the church today, who lag behind in their prayer. Reading the word the tennis in worship are fair game for amyloid who attacks the week, I Moses told Joshua shoes out men and go and fight. Emelec Delara, I will stand on top of the hill with a rod of God in my hand bozos did not go to the top hill alone. It took with him are his brother. And the also took her who may have been his brother-in-law. Now there stands Moses Aaron and her when Moses held up the rod of God, and he's hands probably somewhat like a barbell raves overhead Joshua, prevailed. Whenever he put his hand down. I'm Elec prevailed. The rod was the same rod us just before he struck the rock and brought forth water out of the rock. When Israel, Saul, the raw lifted high. They knew that they had tapped in the power of God. When Moses foot down the rod, their faith wavered, prevailed. Remedy situation had to be provided so they took a stone and Moses sat on it. Then her stood on one side and her on the other. They stood at the hands of Moses until the going down of the sun in this matter, Joshua discomfited Emelec that his people with the issue of the sword Moses stood on top of the mountain with a rod of God, interceding for the people Joshua fought in the valley, it took to weapons to win the battle prior on the hill and the sword below. This is true with us as soldiers of the cross. There are three things this account that gave Israel victory over amyloid. I the rod uplifted in the hands of bows, at the top of the hill, second, the sword of Joshua down below and the third. The stoned, where Moses set these three things will provide victory today in our battle with, Emily. Remember the apostle Paul tells us Stanford after the Lord and in his mind, then he said take up the sword of the spirit. Which is the word of God with all prayer and supplication, praying all seasons for all the saints these the super weapons of God. The prayer and the sword considered a weapon. Prayer. Consider prayer as a super weapon because the lifting up of a Hans is suggestive that Moses was praying. Uplifted hands in scripture is a sign of prayer Moser's told Timothy God is are all man pray everywhere. Lifting up. Holy hands without wrath disputing. I didn't psalms twenty eight here, the voice of my supplication when I cry onto the when I lift up my hands toward by holy article, we must do the same pray while the battle is going on do not wait until the battle is over. You are tempted in any way start, praying right? Then, don't wait. When an immoral thought comes to mind pray, don't wait. When tempted to cheat pray, don't wait when tempted to be selfish in the offering plate being passed pray, don't wait for maximum effect. Prayer should always be used while the battle is going on. Don't wait. Pray Jesus had much to say about prayer. He's speaking to them to the end that they ought always to pray. Jesus said there are many things to pray about. He said, pray the Lord of the harvest that he send forth laborers into his harvest pray that prayer. Now, don't wait. Pray. The crying need today is more and more. The Lord will send in to the fields that are white into harvest. Jesus. Told you chose the apostles, he went up into a mountain. Done prayed all night. Watch and pray that you inter- not the temptation, the spirit indeed is willing. But the flesh is weak. Prayed, father, who is a secret. And I follow who is his secret show. Recommenced the James says the effectual fervent prayer for righteous van veil of much in his working, and Paul tells us pray though seizing prayer is a super weapon of God. But the other super weapon is a sword. Polled hills. Fijian's take up the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God. And we are reminded the Hebrews. The word of God is living an active and sharper than to its sword victory in the Christian life comes by prayer. And by the sword. Although word of God. In revelation the first Schefter the puzzle. John saw vision of glorified Christ. And part of the description shows Jesus with a two edged sword. Proceeding out of his mouth. The word of God is a sword. Daddy does appropriate that the sword was in his mouth. It is the preaching of the word of God, that Jesus included in the great commission. Go Ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature he that believe of and is baptized shall be saying. Jesus wrote to the church perga- bows, revelation because serving their need to repent. He said, repent or else, I will come and make war against them with a sword. The mouth. The sword of his mouth is a weapon that will be used on the day of judgement. Jesus said in John twelve he that rejected me and receive of not my sayings has won the judge of him. The word that I speak the same shall judge in the last day. In revelation nineteen there is another picture of Jesus coming in judgment, and, again, there is a sword proceeding his mouth, this time, the use of the sword is more explicit John's zoos, with it. He should swiped the nation's then rule them with a rod of iron prayer. And the sword are two mighty weapons Paul tells us Second Corinthians. For though, we walk in the flesh, we do not war, according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh. But my he before God to the casting, down of strongholds. Casting down imaginations down, every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God. Dan, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Jesus Christ. Ladies and gentlemen. The sword of the spirit is a powerful weapon. But it does not have any power if it is left in the scabbard. For the sword to have any power. It must be drawn out daily every Christian so powerful weapons of God prayer and the sword of the spirit. And now, though the stone as the basis of the power notice, how it says that Moses sat on a stone Moses could not hold up his hands indefinitely. Put the rod down. God knew that most couldn't do it alone. He was aware that Moses would need help. That is why Moses would instruct those two worthies. Erin stand, our my right hand. Her stand thou on my left. That is very suggestive the stone is always a symbol of the Lord. Jesus christ. In Matthew, twenty one. Jesus said the stone, which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner. Poses if Asians, the church is built on the foundation of puzzles, and profits. Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone. Peter referred to the prophecy, in our twenty eight behold alliens on for a foundation of stone, tried stone a precious stone. Assure foundation. Peter said to some it was stone of stumbling in Iraq of offense. They stumble at the word being disobedient, these prophesied qualities of the Lord and his church the Lord and his church tried precious. And sure the apostle Peter tells us in his first official if he have tasted that the Lord is gracious unto whom coming, Livingstone, rejected didn't eat a man, but with God elect precious, you also are living stones built up a spiritual house. According to the prophecy of our Zia the stone is tried the scripture is filled with the trials of Jesus and his church. Jesus himself was tried by the devil, among other places in the wilderness. Temptation, he was led into the wilderness to be tempted to the devil. The devil tried the stone. Jesus did not break the devil departed from him for a season, then return many times at always the same the stone, did not break down. Not only was the Lord tried by the devil. He was tried by man. They said the him in the closing days of his ministry. What I thought he'd do these things who gave the this authority? Many and varied whether trials is it lawful tribute to Caesar. Whose wife show she what is the greatest commandment in the law show us out from heaven. How you now say I am come down out of heaven. How can he give us his flesh to eat art valve, the king of the Jews? What is truth? How can a man be born? Again, when he's old all on the questions came through his ministry, Jesus. The stone was thoroughly tried by men. Was tried by the devil. And man, the heavenly father tried him on the cross. Jesus said my God. My god. Why has thou forsaken me the stone was tried stone than the stone? Did not break. Not only was stolen tried stone. But it was also a precious stone. Say, oh, said it was a precious. Cornerstone, and Peter called it a stone, elect and precious. Other normal circumstances. We take water for granted. He does near to us as the turn of attemp but to a person on the desert with no prospects of getting more. His canteen full of water is more precious to him at that time than gold. He will not wish to waste one drop of it. Jesus who gave us the water of life must be recognized as the most precious thing in our lives. Peter told the counselor Jerusalem. Were being tried for healing the lame man at the beautiful temple. There is therefore now though, other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Jesus is our only hope we don't have to hopes another lean back on. He is our only hope the stone is precious. The stone was also a sure foundation Paul told Timothy how the firm foundation of God's stand ashore. Lord no offense that are his that everyone that name the name of the Lord Jesus depart from iniquity. Remember, Peter said also are living stones. Built up a spiritual house. Again, Paul tells Fijian's that we are no longer strangers and Sojourner, but fellow citizens with the saints and the household of God built on the foundation of apostles prophets. Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone, all Christians have a piece of the rock. And the gates of heydays, shall not prevail against it. Jesus gives the best plan for a life.

"Was visiting Israel. And he said out loud into a microphone that he thinks Donald Trump is just like Queen Esther from the bible, the book of Esther. Trump clothes back on. Now. You heard Mikey? I thought he was going to be singing. Bye bye bye. As part of the beauty contest. Yeah. Absolutely. Here's a quick background on the Queen Esther story for context. It was around four seventy BC Zirk sees the I was thinking of Persia and he threw big party. And he told his Queen Queen varsity to come out, and you know, be hotter than everyone else's wife. So I look good. But she didn't feel like it. 'cause obviously that's noxious. So he banished her forever. Obviously that man it was time for a beauty contest to pick a new Queen which was won by Esther so spot on Donald Trump so far. Remind me when did Cirque sees cheat on his wife with a porn star right after she gave birth to on. I'm just trying to. This easy to think of something about our president. That makes him look bad in comparison to Cirque. Fuck. So eventually ester found out about a plot to have all the Jewish people in Persia get exterminated because some Persian Nazi advisor desert. Sees was like, hey, how should we pick a genocide since we have to pick one I know cast some lots so through some rocks on the ground, and they spelled out kill the funny ones with the money. I guess they always do. They always. The rocks are interesting, but Esther found out about the plot. She told her people to fast and pray and then she managed to talk the king into killing the Nazi guy instead of doing the genocide, and then the Jewish people lived happily ever after forever and ever Middle Eastern Europe. Because of all the great prang and other beloved minority here in the United States to one of down. Trump's best son-in-law's is Jewish and his daughter birth. Some amazing Jewish babies don't Trump is the ester of twenty nine clearly set our secretary of state's state. It's fifty fifty that at some point he'd had to talk himself out of ordering genocide. So I can see how Pumpido might get there that you're short. So getting back to Mike bump story. He was in Jerusalem, and he decided to do an interview, and he figured the best bet for a news outlet in the country of Israel would be the Christian broadcasting network fucking again, you know, he's an expert in diplomacy job. And during the interview he was asked quote, could it be that President Trump has been sort of raised for such a time as this just like Queen Esther to help save the Jewish people from the Iranian menace. And I gotta soom. This question happened as part of an elaborate wager. Here's the response from palm pale quote as a Christian. I certainly believe that's possible. So good start. I mean that fits after literally any sentence. He continued. We were down in the tunnels where we could see three thousand years ago and two thousand years ago, if I have the history, just right? You absolutely do not. Remarkable history of the faith in this place, and the work that our administrations done to make sure that this Jewish state remains and quote now if I'm correct magic Jews Doug Lea's, bottomless pits to poop into full billion years ago. I am the secretary of state. Tell them about the fun little reenactment village..

"Of course, the prime minister who's up for reelection in April and is under investigation at home will visit Trump at the White House next week. And yes, he'll be speaking at a pack this weekend as well. Well yesterday. Trump appeased his buddy Netanyahu by announcing that the United States would recognize Israel's with authority over the disputed Golan Heights that would reverse decades of US policy and violating United States resolution that the US voted for Netanyahu repeatedly encouraged Trump to embrace such a change which would grant Israel sovereignty overland taken in war. The United Nations says Israel must withdraw from territory seized by force. But that's not the only Netanyahu news or or well. There's more secretary of state Mike Pompeo was in Jerusalem with Netanyahu on Thursday yesterday and well throughout the week yesterday Pompeo sat down with the Christian broadcasting network. I know you're thinking is I do why the hell is there a Christian broadcasting network? But putting that aside he raised some eyebrows. When in an interview. Mike Pompeo said that well let he believes the Trump may have been sent by God to save the Jewish people. Now, I gotta tell you when I saw that headline. I'm like excuse me. And I listened to the clip, and it kind of pissed me off a little bit the way it's being positioned. It's sort of like when when they when the media L freaked out and said Oprah Winfrey is going to run for president. And and it turns out she never brought it up. She was asked the question, and they decided she's all thinking about it. No. She was asked the question. Are you going to run for president basically said no, well, here's what happened with Mike Pompeo and some idiot on the. Christian broadcasting network today's being poor of celebration Jews worldwide and here in Jerusalem. We're talking about the fact that Esther twenty five hundred years ago save the Jewish people with God's help from Heyman. And now twenty five hundred years later, there's a new Heyman here in the Middle East that wants to Aratu at the Jewish people just like Heyman did the state of Iran. Could it be that that President Trump right now is been sort of raised for such a time as this just like Queen Esther to help save the from an Iranian minutes as a Christian? I certainly believe that's possible. So we were down in the tunnels where we could see a three thousand years ago and two thousand years ago, if I have the history just right to see the remarkable history of the faith in this place, and the work that our administrations done to make sure that this democracy in the Middle East of this Jewish date remains I'm confident that the Lord is at work here. I'm confident that the Lord is at work here. I guess we are now living in a theocracy just saying for the second day in a row today schools in Charlottesville Virginia were closed because of a credible terrorist threat by a white supremacist new reports as of about an hour or two ago indicate that Charlottesville police have arrested a seventeen year old in connection with these threats charged him with threats to commit serious bodily harm to persons on school property, a classics felony and harassment by computer, a class one misdemeanor.

"The boy for a while. Okay. Just doing it through the story of the Boeing, so he goes in. And and and the king is taken by Queen Esther and says, listen, I'll give you whatever you want half the kingdom. And so she does a very curious thing. She she exhibits. Enormous patients as she says, you know, let's have another banquet tomorrow. Can says okay, we'll do another Bangla tomorrow. Meanwhile that night the can can't sleep. And so they opened up the book of chronicles trying to figure out if I can't sleep this reason, I can't sleep and they find out that earlier. Sometime earlier. There was a plot to kill the king and the king and more to high the Jew had saved the king's life. So what happened was the king says to him? You know, what do you do to the king wants to give honor to somebody? What do you do?

Exactly. So the king says cable don't kill.

"Okay. Well, so you mentioned before the break that pirating was sort of an equal opportunity profession, and that makes sense when you think about it, because if you're on the run from the Royal Navy or whatever the race or gender of your crewmates isn't going to be a top priority for the most part, pirates welcomed all comers, and that have to be pretty Tyson for people who felt repressed or restricted on land. I'm guessing. Right? Like what did they have to lose. Yeah, that makes sense. And I do think a great example of that mentality or the bands of Jewish pirates that took to the open ocean during the early seventeen hundreds. Now, this is honestly something I'd never heard about before this week and apparently historians are still piecing together their history as well. I was reading that just in this past decade, several graveyards were found in the Caribbean and many of the tombstones their feature Hebrew writing and stars of David, right alongside those iconic school and crossbones symbols. I mean, that is pretty wild. So I, I hadn't heard about this. Either. But what made so many Jewish people go pirate? Well, I guess the seeds of it were actually planted in the very same month at Columbus set sail back in fourteen ninety two. So after sending Columbus on his way, the king and Queen of Spain ordered the expulsion of all Jews and Muslims from the country. Portugal did the same thing just a few years later. So these Spanish Portuguese, Jews set out to find new homes and many of them wound up, settling on Caribbean islands. And in fact, by the seventeen twenty s when Jewish pirates, I set sail an estimated twenty percent of Kingston, Jamaica population was descended from Jewish exiles. Wow, yeah. So a few of these Jews started captaining their own pirate ships and christening than when Queen Esther and the shield of Abraham. And for the most part, these Jewish pirates would exclusively target Spanish and Portuguese ships. Not surprisingly, because this was really seen as payback for those generations of unjust. Treatment. I mean, this is fascinating. So it sounds like we're still uncovering the full history of Jewish pirates, but I am curious. Are there any notorious ones we should know about? Like who's the Blackbeard of Jewish pirates? You know, I'm not sure about that. Exactly. But I think my favorite was probably schmoozed Palaccio who supposedly joined in a number of pirate raids against the Dutch and Spanish ships. But here's the Wild Thing about plot cheat. He was actually a rabbi wait. He was a rabbi pirate. That's kind of an oxymoron, right? Apparently not. I mean, by most accounts, Palaccio was also pretty pious. Not only did he insists that his crew donate a tenth of their treasure to charity. He also made sure they all kept kosher during their voyages. That's amazing. So no, shellfish. But you know, we're talking about how piracy was this drastic kind of escape for repressed people. And I think another great example of that are the many women who built new lives for themselves at sea. So most of them earn their keep as servants cooks prostitutes. But a few also found work as merchant sailors naval officers and even pirates. For instance, there's Irish pirate named grace O'Malley and in the sixteenth century, she became one of the few female pirates to captain her own ship. And she made a pretty frightening name vers off all along the coast of Ireland. Like she had a bunch of really intense scars on her face which he claimed were from being attacked by an eagle. And if that wasn't bad ass enough, she also reportedly gave birth to her youngest son. While aboard her ship and then proceed to fight off invaders with her baby in one hand and a sword and other is on. Yeah, that's pretty impressive. And definitely something Blackbeard can't claim to have done. But I think for my money, the undisputed, Queen of female pirates and honestly, maybe just pirates in general, has got to be kept in ching. She in the early nineteenth century, she spent her youth working as a cortisone on a floating brothel in canton China. Now, during this time, she made a name for herself as this really shrewd businesswoman. Apparently she had a knack for blackmail and would often use the secrets that she'd heard as a prostitute and she would do this in order to control her wealthy and influential clients. So as you might imagine, this was a pretty attractive skill to a pirate which is house..
