I'm Josh, and there's Chuck and Jerry's here, and we're all jacked up because Halloween's coming and we've been eating candy for six weeks straight. Short Stuff. And things are getting spoopy in here. Spoopy? Spoopy, it's a word. It means not quite spooky, a lighthearted version of spooky. Is that like your own word? No, it's a real thing. You can look it up and we'll wait. Okay, hold on a second. Yep, your story checks out. It's a real word. All right. Well, let's talk about bedsheet ghosts then because I picked this one out when I was looking for something spoopy and I just, I kind of had a bit of nostalgia for the old school bedsheet ghosts and I was like, oh, where in the world did that come from? Who started doing that? Because it's a thing. You see people still do it as a cut real costume occasionally, whether or not you don't have the money to scrape up for some expensive costume or if you're just lazy. Either way, it's great. And it's also been in a gazillion pieces of pop culture like Beetlejuice and Scooby Doo and Charlie Brown, all kinds of stuff. Our friend Toby produced a movie that it featured in recently, A Ghost Story. I still haven't seen that. I got to see it. It's interesting. It is art house. It's very art house. Like, there's a lengthy scene where Rooney Mara just sits there and eats pie quietly in her kitchen. Like, that's the scene. It's really interesting. But it's cool. It's a cool concept. But the ghost is just wearing a bedsheet the whole time. Yeah, it's iconic. Exactly. I think that's the point. And I never stopped to question that. I think that was a great question that you had in your head. And it's really, I love things where you just stop and think, where did this come from? And there's a definitive answer that makes complete sense. And this happens to be one of those things. Yeah, I love those. So we dug into Salon .com, Tuft & Needle .com, and The Daily Beast. And everyone's story is the same. So it has to be true. But it comes from the fact that back in olden days, and specifically, I mean, we can go back to the time of Jesus, if you'd like to. But specifically, forward a bit to 17th century Britain, when people would wrap their deceased loved ones in white sheets, burial shrouds, to bury them. They used to do that, you know, just routinely back in ancient times. But then as we got a little more modern and coffins came around, if you had money, you could still go with a coffin. But if you didn't, you were still using that linen sheet probably. Yeah, and it's actually come full circle again, because one of the hallmarks of a green burial is using a burial shroud instead of a coffin. That's right. So a burial shroud is associated with dead people. And if a dead person returned from the grave, i .e. a ghost, you would think that they're probably still wearing their burial shroud or the bedsheet that they were buried in. And that, that is how bedsheets became synonymous with ghosts. Yeah, and we could stop there. This could be the shortest short stuff. Yeah, but it gets even more interesting if you ask me. It does, because all these great websites found some pretty cool stories to tie into this. And this is something I never knew. It was so synonymous with spooking people that thieves in London, and dare I say, go to England, greater would wear this stuff sometimes. I read some sites that said they would wear it just to scare people sometimes, and rob them on the street. And I also saw sometimes they would scare them from their home, so they could then just be like, all right, we got the place to ourselves. Let's rob it. Either way, I mean, don't you deserve to be robbed if a ghost scares you? Maybe they were just like, oh God, a robber. And that's really why they were running out, not that they thought it was a ghost. Sure. And he's wearing a sheet, so he must be dangerous. So clearly by this time, sheets and ghosts were fully in the mind of the pop culture, I guess, right? Yeah. The thing is, is at this time, around this time, in the early 1800s, like I think 1805 maybe, there is a very famous case of a person being mistaken for a bedsheet wearing ghost who paid with their life basically for walking around wearing a white outfit and refusing to wear anything but that.
A highlight from Matthew: Emmanuel (Which Means God With Us)
"You know, there is a world of difference between saying to someone that I am for you and telling them that I am with you. These two things do not mean the same thing. There's a world of difference between telling someone, I'm for you, I'm in your corner, I'm rooting you on, you've got this. There's a world of difference between telling someone that and telling them, I'm with you. In World War I, there was a lieutenant. His troops were getting ready to go over the edge. They were ready to take on the enemy. They were ready to cross the trenches. And this lieutenant, he's anxious. He's nervous about what might happen, and he sees a commander coming down through the trenches. The commander looks at this man, and he can see the anxiety. He can see the nerves there, and so he comes alongside him, puts his arm on him, and he points out. He points out to where they're going. He points out to no man's land. And he tells them, when we go out there, I'm going to be with you. We're going to do this together. And that gave the younger man a sense of confidence. It wasn't the old grizzled veteran just saying, you got this, from a distance, and go do it. Rather, he was saying, I'm going to be with you as you do it. I'm with you in the trenches, and I'm going to be with you in the battle yet to come. As we said, it's one thing to tell someone I'm for you. That's easy. You can do that to anyone. It's another thing to say, I'm going to invest myself in the outcome of what you're going through. I'm going to enter into the crucible of your pain with you, at your side. There's a comfort when a commander or a general does it, but how much more so when a god does that. When god not only gives us a word and says, hey, you got this. I'm for you. I'm in your corner. But rather when he says, I am with you as you face this. There's something encouraging about that. In today's text, it's exactly what we see. In today's reading, the birth of this child, the one who had come from a throne down to a manger. In this text, we see that this one was to be named Immanuel. That this one was the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. And that his name literally means God with us. God with us. Not just God for us, but God with us. Verse 23 of our text will say, behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son. They shall call his name Immanuel, which means God with us. This is one of the primary attributes, one of the primary things that makes our god cool, that makes our god awesome. One of the primary things is because he didn't just create the cosmos, spin it like a top, and then go off and watch us from a distance to see how things would turn out. Rather, from the get -go, from Jump Street, from the garden, that which he created, he dwells with. He creates Adam, he creates Eve, and then he walks and talks with them in the cool of the afternoon. The pagan gods didn't do this sort of thing. They didn't pay attention necessarily to everything that was going on. The god of the deists, the people who think that God is just this aloof god out in the cosmos somewhere that has nothing to do with us, who wants that kind of god? Thank God that's not the god we have. Rather, we have a god who is with us in the midst of everything we're going through. This was true in the garden. It was true at Sinai. It was true in the tabernacle. It was true in the temple. That's true for even us as New Testament believers because where does God reside now? God is with us. Do you know how the book of Matthew closes? Do you know what the very last verse is? Here we see as Jesus is introduced, his name means, I'm with you, God with us, the very last verse in the book of Matthew, the very last block of text in the book of Matthew says the same thing. In the Great Commission, we see this. Go therefore, make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, teaching them to serve all the things I've commanded you, and lo, I am with you even to the end of the age. You see that? There's a bookend. The moment Jesus is introduced in chapter 1, the message is that God has come down from the throne to be with his people. And then prior to his ultimate ascension, he says the same thing because I'm going to leave my helper. Oh, and by the way, I am with you even to the end of the age. That's a God we can love. That's a God we can worship. A God who is not just for us but a God who is with us. All right, if you would, let's look at verses 18 and 19. We're going to talk about the God who is with us as we see of his birth. In verses 18 and 19, we're going to see what was going on with Mary Joseph, and then we're going to work our way through the text as time will allow. Okay, verses 18 and 19. Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows. After his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph, her husband, being a just man and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. All right, at the start of this passage, we see something just very ordinary, something as natural as natural can be. There's a woman, an individual who's pregnant, a pregnancy that will lead to childbirth. Very natural, happens all the time. However, in these verses, we see that there's something unnatural or at least unusual that's going to take place. Verse 18 adds an unordinary qualifier. It says that there's going to be a pregnancy, normal, but in this case it will occur without physical union. Now I'm not a physician, but I have studied anatomy and the like, and I know that's just not the way that this works. Well, verse 18, we're seeing the seeds for something that we call the virgin birth, and this is one of the most important things to understand with regards to Christ's birth, with regards to the incarnation, because this is not an average everyday event. Rather, this is a miracle, and it's not just a miracle, but it's a fulfillment of prophecy, because Isaiah said this is the way it was going to go down. Behold, there be a virgin who would give birth to a child. Now verse 18 clarifies it. It's not Joseph's child, and for these verses, we know this much. They're betrothed, but there's been no physical union then. Now if you've seen Fiddler on the Roof, you remember the matchmaker? Remember the matchmaker? Well, they had similar things throughout Jewish history. They would have a season in which people were brought together. This was tradition. They were brought together by matchmakers and parents and others. They were put into a union, and yet there was a year. I know you want to sing it. There was a year of time after they were brought together in which they were sort of betrothed. We might consider it engaged. It's not really a point -for -point analogy, but they were betrothed. They spent a year in this estate prior to physical union. That's what's going on here. It's actually much stronger than an engagement. This is a strong relationship that they have, and yet it has not been consummated physically at this point. And so, all of a sudden, out of the blue, Mary is with child. Uh -oh. Now, we have lost touch with the word scandal. We really have. I mean, dear heavens, everything is a scandal. It doesn't matter what news. Whatever you pick up, there's a scandal on every page from every direction. It seems like every aspect of celebrity or politics or athletics or what have you, scandal, scandal, scandal. We've lost touch with it. In fairness, it didn't always used to be this way. If you're watching a TV show, if Barney Fife stole part of Andy Griffith's sandwich, they can make a whole scandalous episode out of that. There was things in the past that seemed scandalous at the time that now it's absolutely nothing. We've lost touch with scandal to the point we look at this text, and we don't understand what Joseph's going through. And his culture and his time, what he and Mary were just experiencing. She's pregnant, and there's no father. There's been no physical union. He is betrothed to someone who's pregnant, doesn't know what's going on. This was a scandal of scandals. And in his day, based on an understanding of Deuteronomy, this could even have led to her death. This was not a small thing. This is a huge, huge event that's taking place. And so, in verses 18 and 19, we see Joseph in the middle of a conundrum. He's betrothed to this individual who has this situation going on. He doesn't know how it happened. He doesn't know exactly what's going on, but he has concern. Now, he cares for Mary enough that he doesn't want to see this become the public spectacle that it otherwise very well could be. And so he attempts to find some way to accommodate her well -being, but apart from being able to marry her, because he's a just man, and there's obviously been in his mind an infidelity that's taken place that would disqualify that union. Now, before he could act on that impulse, an angel intervenes. Let's look at verses 20 and 21 to see what happens in this intervention. Verse 20, but while he thought about these things, while Joseph thought about all this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she'll bring forth a son, you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins. All right. As we said in verses 18 and 19, Joseph and Mary, Mary is now pregnant. Joseph is trying to figure out what to do. And in verse 20, we see that while he's contemplating, which I'm sure this took some time for him to work this through, but while he's thinking about these things, he goes to sleep. He's worried, he's anxious, he falls asleep, and in the midst of his sleep, an angel of the Lord comes to him in a vision, in a dream. And this happens at other intervals as scripture as well. And when the angel comes to Joseph, it's a simple message. It says, Joseph, what you think has happened is not accurate. But let me tell you, you're worried you should take Mary as your wife. You shouldn't be. Do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. Now, I don't know what kind of theologian Joseph was at this point. We believe him to be older than Mary, but we don't know what kind of theologian he was. But whatever his theology was, he probably didn't fully understand that last statement. That which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. Joseph didn't have John Calvin around to explain all the Trinitarian implications of this. And I imagine Joseph had more questions than answers, even when he hears this news. And yet he knew this much, even if he didn't have all the Trinity figured out at this time, even if he doesn't know what it means for the Spirit to overshadow her, even if he's still going, what does that mean? He at least knew this much, that Mary's pregnancy was not a function of her sin. He knew that there was not some other father in some tent down the street. He knew that the child that she was pregnant with was from God. And some way that he probably couldn't fully articulate, but he knew it was from God. And then God, through the angel, tells Joseph what to name him. Now naming rites in Jewish culture or any culture come from seats of authority. If you think about it in the garden, in the garden, Adam and Eve, you know, they're given the garden and all the animals are frolicking about as animals do. And Adam and Eve had a job, they actually had a couple of jobs. One was to take dominion over that which God had given them, and another thing was to do what for the animals? To name them, right? The greater names, the lesser, right? That's why parents named children are not children naming parents. Kind of glad it doesn't work that way. In this case, we see that God himself, through the angel, takes ownership over the name of his own son. It's not up to Joseph to name. He says his name will be Jesus. His name will be Jesus. We'll see that a little bit more in the verses yet to come. Whatever the case here is, the idea is that as this child is born of the Holy Spirit, this child comes with a purpose. His name will be Jesus because Jesus means what? It means the Lord is salvation. His person is yoked to his work. The angel identifies his person and his origins from God, the Holy Spirit, but he also identifies here's what he's come to do, and we're going to see that a little bit more in the verses yet to come. What we're also going to notice here, just a minute, is that when the angel talks about who will come to save his people from their sins, remember last week we talked about this. The people didn't necessarily have a problem with their sins. You know what the great irony is? You give someone a cure for a disease they don't think they have. If you come running up to someone on the streets of Gulfport with a vial of some cure, some medicine, or what have you, for a disease they don't understand they got, they'll just say, you crossed the other side of the street. They won't care because they don't recognize what you're holding is the cure for a problem that they have. The same is true with sin. The culture around us doesn't really think they have a problem with sin, and if they do think sin is a problem, they do this thing that's convenient. They redefine sin to be something that is external to them, a problem other people have. Whatever the case, when people had no understanding that they need to be saved from sin, if anything that they need to be saved from, it was going to be from Rome, which is what we talked about last week. Their fear, their concern, Joseph's concern, Mary's concern, the people down the street's concern was not so much that, oh, my sin is going to get me. And yet, that was the spiritual guillotine that was over their necks and ours apart from this child that was born. Every man, woman, and child has stood condemned under sin. You read the Book of Romans, the first five, six chapters, as Paul is condemning the human race and saying, well, this is our problem. Then, of course, he introduces the solution. Well, the angel introduced the solution too and says, this one has come not just to make your life better, not just to pour a little Jesus seasoning on things to give you your best life now. This one came to this end, to this object, to save you from your sins, to save you from a problem that you might not even understand that you have and that our culture certainly doesn't understand it has. That's why he came, and here's the thing. That's what the whole Old Testament said he would do. The Old Testament said when he shows up, when the Messiah we've been waiting from since Genesis 3 .15, when the seed shows up, he will come to save people from their sins, not what they were looking for in the first century, not what they were looking for in the 21st century. And yet the Old Testament prophecy said that's the guy to look out for, one who is not what you expect, one who will come to save you from your sins, one who is not going to come down on a red carpet from God, but will be born in a place like a manger. Isaiah 53, one of the most famous chapters that speaks to these issues, says this. This one would be wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement for our peace would be upon him. By his stripes we'll be healed. All we like sheep have gone astray. We have turned everyone to our own way, and the Lord has laid upon him the iniquity of us all. The angel got it, and he says in the manger, Joseph, and in the womb of Mary right now is the one that has come to do just that. And the cruel irony is the people won't be looking for that. As he gets older, they'll reject him. They'll reject what he came to do, and yet this is the one. This is the child. All right, let's take a look now at verses 22 through 25 and just kind of build on this case. Okay, verse 22. So all this was done, that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken by the Lord through the prophets, saying, Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a son. They shall call his name Immanuel, which is translated God with us. Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and took to him his wife, and did not know her until she had brought forth her firstborn son, and he called his name Jesus. All right, as we just said a moment ago, Christ's person is yoked to his work. The great problem in our age is that our culture doesn't do the same thing. At Christmastime in December, you just watch, people don't have a real problem with the person of Jesus so much. They like cute Jesus, even divine Jesus. That's not really the problem. The problem is his work. He came to convict us of our sins, to turn our hearts to God, to cause us to repent, and to rescue us from sins that most of us don't acknowledge that we have. But in this text, the angel spells it all out. He says this is the reason he's coming. This is the reason he's coming, in order to save them from their sins. And as he saves them from their sins, he will be the fulfillment of prophecies that said he would do just that, which is why even the angel quotes the Old Testament here. End of verse 23. Behold, the virgin shall be with child, shall bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel, which is translated God with us. There's a continuity you're supposed to see with that which is written down recorded in the Old Testament and that which comes on the scene here in Matthew chapter 1. God wants us to see that, and Matthew was desperate that his contemporaries saw it. Remember, their problem when they killed Jesus was they didn't recognize him for who he was. I mean, they had other issues too, but that was chief among them. They just didn't know what they were doing. Isn't that what Jesus said? Father, forgive them. They don't know what they're doing. Same idea. They had a Messiah on their radar that they wanted, and it wasn't this one, this guy. So at Matthew, when he's writing chapter 1, when he's writing to the Jews, he started with the genealogies we talked about last week, and he said, all right, this Jesus is going to be a son of Abraham, which makes him a Jew, and it's going to be a son of David, which makes him a king, or in the line of kings. His objective was to tell the Jewish audience who this Jesus was. Well, here, as chapter 1 continues, he gives the biography even more so, and he says that this one, this Jesus, which means God is salvation, is also named Immanuel, which is an Old Testament prophecy that means God with us. Matthew's making the case, even here in chapter 1, clearly in chapter 1, to a Jewish audience, that this is the Jewish Messiah. Now, would that be compelling? Well, to some, yes. To others, not so much. Now, the past 15 minutes or so, we've quoted Isaiah a few times. I think I referenced Malachi as well, but there in verses 22 through 25, we see the reference again to Isaiah more acutely, more specifically, and this is a reference that to the Jewish audience should have resonated with him, but again, as we just said a moment ago, the irony is that it didn't. The reason that's ironic is this. Matthew knew that many of his fellow Jews had rejected Jesus while simultaneously longing for a Messiah, and his objective here in chapter 1 is to say, hey, guys, they're the one and the saint. The one you rejected is the one you were looking for, and that's what Peter does in Acts 2. He tells the Pharisees, you know the one you killed, the one you nailed to a tree, the one you hung on the cross? That was him, and when they finally get it in the book of Acts, when they finally get that, what happens to them? Scripture says they're just broken to the heart because then they understand what they did. They understand that the light of life had come to them. They didn't recognize it, and then they killed them. As we look to wrap up, we're going to build on all these things as we head towards baptism, as we go towards the temptation, and the things that are going to follow in the book of Matthew, but as we wrap up, I want to return briefly to the word Emmanuel, which we've already established means God with us. Now, earlier I used the term, the term deus. Let me explain briefly. I know many of us know it, but let me explain briefly for those who don't. Every culture, when it comes to religion, there's two camps that they fall in. One, assuming that they believe in God at all, one is the camp of the deist. That camp believes God exists, but we can't know him. He formed the world around us, but then he went off and he does his thing and we do ours. That's deism. As Christians, we're not deists. The alternate is what we call theism. Theism posits that God exists, but you can know him, and what's more, he wants you to know him. You and I are theists, and if you drill into that term even more, we're monotheists. We believe in one God. We're not polytheists that believe in a lot of them. We believe that there is a God. You can have a relationship with him. There is a God and there is just one. Now, that's highly desirable because the alternative is you have a God you can't know that doesn't care about you, and that's what a lot of agnostics in our day do. They go, I think there might be a God somewhere, but they really don't think you can have a relationship with him. Who wants that? Who desires that? Well, the picture in Matthew 1 and throughout the book of Matthew, the picture that's painted here is completely different. It's not about a God who formed the cosmos and went away. Rather, it's a God who is ever -present with creation and undergoes the life experiences, the human experiences that we do up to and including birth. You have a God that can relate to you. You know, one of the greatest hardships or plagues on our age is the plague of loneliness. It's this idea that no one can relate to what I'm going through. The life circumstances have conspired in such a way that I'm going through something that no one can really understand, no one can really relate to, and then there's an isolation that comes with that, even a withdrawal. Maybe some people withdraw from us, and then we're left in this estate. Some of us, maybe many of us, are left in a state of loneliness, maybe for a season, maybe for a lifetime, and it's the hardest thing if you've experienced it. If that's you or someone you know, this message of God with us, and this word of manual should hold a special meaning. Others leave might us, others might forsake us, others might let us down, and yet the God who walked with Adam and Eve, when there was just two of them in the cool of the afternoon, walks with us still. Even we're just one of us. God is with us no matter what we're going through. He's not just munching popcorn, watching what you're going through this week. Some of us have a picture of God that He's up there in the clouds somewhere with a long beard, a long robe, and He's just kind of doing this to see what we do, and He's ready to punish us and the like, and He's there and we're here, and there's this distance. That's not the God of Scripture. The God of Scripture is a God who is intimate and close and wants to be close to you and wants your hand to fit in His. He doesn't call you a peon in the kingdom of heaven. He calls you a son or daughter, and that has meaning. What father or mother among us has not held the hand of our child and felt that proximity, felt that closeness, felt that bond, felt that unity that comes with holding your own? Well, that's what God wants with you. And even now, even if we've been fleeing from Him, His arms are open to this. He came as a babe and a manger, the most defenseless thing that you can possibly come. He came from a state of great glory into a state of great hardship, great difficulty. It would ultimately lead to His death, and yet He did it because He loves His people. He's not indifferent to us. He's not indifferent to us. The other problem that we can sometimes verge into is we can think that He's indifferent to me, but He's cool with other Christians, but I've done something that is so egregious or He knows my past or He knows the things I did yesterday because of that there's this gap. If there's any gap in your walk with God, it's not because He's drifted away from you. It's because you're pushing Him away. The God of this book does not withdraw from children, from sons and daughters, but He's like the parable of the prodigal son. His arms are open wide. Matthew 1, God with us. Matthew 28, God with us. Behold, I am with you even to the end of the age. Whatever you face this week, this book is not an abstract thing that just applies to other religious people or you on occasion. It applies to you today. God's with you as you face whatever you're facing, whatever hardship you're walking down, whatever valley you're traversing, God is with you, and that's a great encouragement of Scripture, and no other faith can present it except this alone. God is with us. We see it in Matthew 1. We're going to see it in Matthew 2 and the balance of the book. Let's pray. Join Dr. Toby Holt and Dr. Dominic Aquila for a tour of Israel in February of 2024.

It looks like it's just the A team today. Trace is not here, but yeah, we've got lots to cover anyway. Heaps of exciting stuff as always. So yeah, let's jump in. Yeah. So first story we'll cover off is the market nose dive. I've been talking and joking with you guys for a few weeks now, had the markets been boring. It's been the same price feels like for months and then all of a sudden the whole market dropped about 10%, Bitcoin dropped 9 % on Thursday. Blake, why do you think this happened? We tend to see this in bull markets, so it's quite odd that we would see it now. What do you think Blake? Yeah. You know, crypto has been on a pretty good run over the last six months, you know, trending up since the market found its bottom. So it can't go up forever. It needs to take a breather for a period of time. And I think that's what we're seeing now. You know, a lot of technical guys are saying that we just need a breather. And this is kind of what happens around this time of the bear market. There's a pullback just to test the lows before moving into the year of the halvening. So there's a lot of analysis out there looking at how this compares to previous bear markets. And some people are drawing some pretty interesting correlations. Yeah. So one of the reports that no one can be sure that it's actually true or not is that the report that SpaceX had written down their $373 million Bitcoin acquisition in 2021. And it also comes as news that Tesla sold 75 % of its Bitcoin holdings after a $1 .5 billion investment. So this price drop, you know, that was getting all the headlines, but then I've also seen people on Twitter saying that it's not actually true and that it can't be verified. It could just be something that markets do sometimes. Yeah. Sometimes markets need to take a breather. It's run pretty hard this year. I think it's doubled in price since the bottom. So you know, that's pretty good for a bear market. And yeah, I think your effort relaxes here for a little while. It gives us that strength to move on up later in the year, if not early next year. Next up, we're going to circle back on a story that we covered last week with regards to Fireblocks. And Fireblocks is the software provider that provides many businesses in this ecosystem with software to help self -custody their own private keys for the cryptocurrency. And we made a small mistake in the story last week where there was actually no vulnerability in the Fireblocks software. Rather, it was the Fireblocks research team who analyzed dozens of publicly available MPC protocols and other wallet providers. And they actually uncovered a vulnerability in one of the Bitforge libraries or in some of the code that they found. And they were able to notify these other 15 digital wallet providers so that they could patch the vulnerability just in time. So great job from the Fireblocks team and just a small correction there, ladies and gentlemen. Yeah, that's a really important distinction. And we're just going to reach out and say thank you to the Fireblocks team. We know they're listeners of the show. And yeah, great job on their end. Moving on. Now this next story, we've got a new crypto app being dubbed the next crypto super app. It's called Frantech. It's making all the headlines and it's the talk of the Twitterverse or the Xverse now. They have just recently released a decentralized social media platform that's generated $1 million fees in in 24 hours from August 19th, outperforming established players like Uniswap and the Bitcoin network. Blake, have you heard about these guys? No, not at all, mate. Have they just come out of the blue or what? They just came out of the blue. They're a project that's in beta. And I actually just signed up last night to give the crypto curious community my due diligence. And this is how it works, Blake. And I actually think this has legs. So it's built on Coinbase's layer two called base, which you've covered about on previous episodes. And how it works is that each person that signs up, you link in with your Twitter or your X profile and your profile will have a share price. So my share price right now is like $0 .007, it's like $1 in Ethereum. No surprise there. Yeah, no surprise. I'm a nobody. But guys, come talk to me on Frantech. So what happens is when people buy your share price, that means that my DMs are open. So Blake, you know, obviously you're a CEO, people aren't want to get advice from you, they might buy a dollar worth of Blake coin or whatever it is, and then they can talk to you, get advice from you. But the hype has really started in the last few weeks because an NBA player called Grayson Allen, his share price has surged to 0 .2 Ethereum, which is about a fifth of the Ethereum price now, which is about $500. So people are really spending that and then DMing him. Toby, who's a big crypto influencer, his share price is two and a half ETH. I can't imagine why you would spend that much to talk to Coby. He seems to reply to everyone. So they've actually got over 100 ,000 users already, Blake, and their total project revenue $818 stands at ,000 with over 650 ,000 transactions on the platform. Well, that's pretty impressive. And I really like the idea of having to pay for, even if it's a nominal amount, to send a message or to create a post because it stops, creates a barrier entry for spammers as well, that it's putting out heaps of automated messages. I think it makes a lot of sense. Do you reckon this is going to stick around, Craig, into the next run or it just be a bit of a hype for a few weeks and it'll die off? I think this is interesting because it's obviously a good idea, but it really all depends on who's going to join the platform. If you think about it, you probably have a few people that you'd pay to have access to. Like for me, it would be maybe Gary V or someone that's an entrepreneur, maybe like a soccer player or something that you want to talk to. So if I pay the two ETH to say chat with Koby, does that go to the platform or does that go to Koby or is there like a fee split between the two? So the platform earns 5%, but I would assume that if Koby's share price is going up and he would be able to take some profits, but I'm not really sure how that would work. Right. That makes sense if the platform's taking 5%. Is there anyone that you would pay for access to? Oh, maybe Kesha.
A highlight from The God Who Keeps His Promises
"Welcome to the podcast of first presbyterian church of gulfport, mississippi to learn more about our church our beliefs And our pastor, please visit fpcgulfport .org Throughout the old testament god made a series of incredible promises Promises that defied his people's expectations And in his time he fulfilled every last one of them in today's study of first kings 8 We'll consider the god who always keeps his promises Including those that he's made to you and I You know one of the very lowest or worst times for god's people Occurred back in the book of numbers is in the wilderness god's people were in the wilderness now Why were they in the wilderness? Well, they're in the wilderness because that's where they chose to be You see if you remember the story god had told them I have made you i've created i've set aside for you a promised land It's yours go for it And so they sent in spies to check it out to see what it was like to see if they indeed could take it However, when the spies reported back the majority of the spies said no way They said the land is great. No problems there. The land is great the problem is There are giants there. The problem is we're just a bunch of people in the wilderness They've got cities like jericho with walls that are high. They've got armaments. They've got soldiers who stand one and a half times above us God may have told us to go there, but we can't because we'll die And so they spent their time in the wilderness. And in fact a whole generation died out Of that level of distrust or lack of confidence what god told them to do So they're wandering in the wilderness. That's what made the book of numbers so sad They're in a place No one wants to go doing things that they shouldn't be doing and they do it for a whole Generation and they did it based on fear They did it on the basis of that. We just can't do what god has told us to do We know god is strong. I mean, of course, he's strong. Look what he did to pharaoh. He brought all those plagues 10 of them and yet And yet he won't do that for us. I mean he did it back then but You know that was then this is now They had enough faith to remember moses. They had enough corporate honesty to know what happened In their recent past and yet they didn't have enough faith to think that what god did in the past had any bearing on What he would do in the future god says go into the land. They say no We'll die despite the fact That one generation earlier god had literally swapped the armies of pharaoh under the red sea that god had brought down all these plagues If you're god, you're thinking to yourself, you know, I think i've made a pretty good case for myself Am I willingness to protect you? What are you doing? But the people were were fearful They're anxious God had made them a promise They just doubted his ability to come through on it Is that where you're at matters of faith a whole generation of israelites That's where they were at They had enough faith to believe god was there Do you believe god's there I hope so The problem was not that they didn't believe he was there And their problem was not that they didn't believe he'd done some really cool things a long time ago. The problem was They didn't think they would come through for them in this particular instance. No matter what he had said. They knew he'd promised They just doubted the reliability of that promise and for some of us That's our concern We don't doubt god exists. We know he's there Sometimes we doubt whether he loves us enough to count us in that promise And other times we just doubt whether he's actually going to do the very things that he said that he was going to do Well today's text we're seeing psalm is stopping the presses. He's taking the people by the lapel He's shaking him and saying dear heavens. Do you see what god has done? Not a word failed Of what he said not a word not a syllable has failed what he said he would do And he made some of the most amazing promises You could possibly make to people who are in no position to believe that they'd ever be received He told abram old abram and old sarah that they'd have a not just a kid But a progeny the more numerous than the stars in the sky It was a promise seemed unbelievable to fulfill and he fulfilled it to a t He's done everything that he would say he would do and the reason that was important for them And the reason that's important to us is because he's made you a promise, too He's made you a promise about your future And the question is can he come through will he come through In today's text psalm wanted to encourage his people and god wants to encourage us that the answer is yes Let's look at the first couple verses. Let's start with verse 54. Then. Let's work our way through the balance verse 54 And so it was when solomon had finished praying all this prayer and supplication to the lord That he rose up from before the altar of the lord from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up To heaven All right. Let's stop there in the verses immediately preceding today's passage The temple was done it had taken a while But the temple is now done and king solomon if you read earlier in chapter eight, he had prayed a lengthy prayer That's okay. He had a lot to say so he praised this lengthy prayer and during this prayer. He'd recounted god's faithfulness Sometimes that's okay, too We pray to god and we thank god and we remind god of what he already knows the things that he's done And by virtue of us reminding him of what he already knows we remind ourselves of what we need to hold on to going forward So he prayed this lengthy prayer and then he rises up and stands but as he stands he swivels And he looks out a bunch of folks whose faith was probably like a sine curve Ups and downs from person to person maybe from day to day maybe from hour to hour Solomon was looking at those who had doubts and anxieties not that different from those that many of us had He's also looking at some folks that he knew to be hard -headed You ever read moses experiences in deuteronomy ministering to god's people just hard -headed people David had had the same experience psalm and already as a young king. He had seen the same thing the people are hard -headed They not only tended to reject a lot of things that the prophets and leaders said But they also tended to reject what god had said, but god had still been faithful That was part of his prayer. Thank you god You've been so faithful we've been such such goofs we've done all the things we shouldn't do we've really messed up But you've never let us down You fulfilled everything to a t meanwhile. We're just staggering around the wilderness Even as they'd come into the promised land It's still their faith was like a sine curve and psalm praises says god. Thank you that you don't operate the way that we do Thank you that your promises are reliable So in verse 54, he wraps up this prayer and now again as he swiveled to talk to the people He wants to both encourage them and to challenge them. Let's see what he says in verses 55 and 56 Verse 55 then he stood and he blessed all the assembly of israel with a loud voice sang Blessed be the lord who has given rest to his people israel according to all that he has promised There's not failed one word of all his good promise which he promised through his servant moses If someone were to make you a promise What's the first thing your brain does? So it makes you a promise. What's the first thing you do? Well, here's the first thing I do You think through and you say well what other promises have you made in the past? Because I think i'm going to adjudicate Your ability and willingness to come through on this particular issue On the basis of whether you came through on other issues If someone makes you a promise you immediately you can't help it you think of the track record You think is this a reliable source? Of information promises and the like we consider a new promise in light of what has been done with the old ones Well in verses 55 and 56 Solomon says look there are still better promises yet ahead if you think that this promised land is cool Just wait till you see what is yet to come there's better promises of a better land. There's a better moses coming down the road There's all sorts of stuff in the future that we have to hold on to By faith and in order to believe those promises of that outcome you need to look back and ask Did god come through and what he already said he would do and in verses 55 and 56 he says yes He says look god said some amazing stuff in the past And he delivered he delivered on things that seemed impossible for him to fulfill and so with a loud voice in verse 55 He basically tells the people he says You are the most fortunate of all people because your god Unlike the gods of the philistines and the canadites and the moabites and the amorites and the hitites and the jebusites and every other Ite he says unlike them your god has an unbroken track record Unlike the pagan prophecies and pagan gods of stone and marble and wood That have failed consistently habitually That have let down the very people who have bent the knee to them unlike those people You have a god who came through on every last thing he told you he would Blessed be you and blessed be the name of the lord And he wanted them to remember some of the things that god had done in fact, that's healthy. That's why we read the book That's why we study the old testament And the new as we understand we remember what god has done and how that applies to us We think about the things he did how amazing they were and if he did those amazing things Maybe yet there'll be a resurrection from the dead. Maybe yet We'll all go to heaven. Maybe yet all the things for the future will be fulfilled if he's done all these things in the past You know, as we said some of the things that god promised Defied expectations and the belief of everyone who heard them at the outset I already mentioned abraham and sarah You take the old couple tell them that they're going to have a child and they've been barren all these years and where time has passed Sarah's reaction. I was just to laugh it seemed utterly implausible God made them a promise that seemed utterly implausible and yet he he came through Psalm looked out and saw the descendants He saw the fulfillment of this one promise Think even further back think of noah god promised to this one guy this one Paragon of virtue and just a sea of apostasy and unrighteousness he says it's going to rain But you're going to make it because you're going to build a boat However, it's not going to be just any boat You're going to build a boat big enough to fit all the creatures within the creative realm within it now dear heavens If there is a promise that just defies expectation and belief that it could ever be fulfilled. This is it Of course noah trusted god and went about building a boat in god's time It was filled with animals and god's time the rain came God made a promise that defied expectation then then he fulfilled it Just after the time of when they entered the promised land they came up to the city that god's people You know, they crossed the jordan they come in. All right, so we're in the promised land. Uh -oh. Uh -oh What's that big city with a big wall just right over there? Oh my stars. We made it across the jordan We're in the promised land, but now surely we're gonna die God says no, I promised you got this you got this I got this i'll take you through this And they're like, well how we don't have any weaponry We barely made it across the jordan. We've been in the wilderness. We don't look at that wall And god says hey and rolls up his sleeves. So this is proverbial sleeve so to speak and says tell you what Just march around the city playing the instruments in the light Do that. Sometimes the wall is going to come down who would believe that? Well, they did And god responded God made a promise and god delivered Back in deuteronomy 12 god had said this he says when you cross over the jordan and dwell in the land Which lord your god's giving you to inherit and he gives you rest from all your enemies all around so that you dwell in safely Then there will be the place with lord God your god chooses to make his name abide in deuteronomy 12 written during the time of moses long time before solomon God says this is going to be a future you're going to have a place and there's going to be a temple and in that temple My name will abide well again Psalms looking out at people who had anxieties about what would god do in the future and he says, please Look what he did in the past Please if you have anxiety about what the future holds if you have trouble believing Aspects of what the future the promised future to the church as a whole or use an individual, please Look at what he did in the past and see how he came through and understand. Nothing's impossible In fact god honestly a hundred percent delights in doing things you don't expect in ways that you wouldn't expect That's just the way he operates So he says here just hear the promises evaluate the promises against promises of old and understand That there is a track record that you can turn to whenever doubts strike whenever these concerns come to mind So in verses 55 and 56, this is what he's saying and he goes even further than that He says not only has god fulfilled all his promises, but not a word of them has failed It's not like he did everything in the abstract that yeah, he delivered, you know largely what he said he was going to do You're at a contractor If a contractor is going to build a house or you know Put up a shed or doing a number of different things and they go out They start to work on the thing and so forth and then when you're done you look and you say well He did largely what he said he was going to do. I mean, I don't love everything It's not all perfect, but it largely honored what he said That's the way most contracts with most individuals and everything work largely they're fulfilled Solomon says the contract the covenant the promises that god has made. It's not just that he fulfilled them largely He fulfilled them to the letter not a word had failed of all the impossible things That god told his people to expect unbroken track record. Let's look at verses 57 through 60 verse 57 And so may the lord our god Be with us as he was with our fathers May the lord god who did all that stuff long time ago to people that generations earlier May he do to us as he is done with them May he not leave us nor forsake us that he may incline our hearts to himself to walk in his ways to keep his commandments And statutes and judgments that he commanded to our fathers and made these words of mine with which i've made supplication before the lord Be near the lord our god day and night that he may maintain the cause of a servant and the cause of his people israel As each day may require god is the god of every day of your life Not just god of this whole thing or god of when you're finally saved and on the other side. He's god now Whatever you're doing today this week He is the god of this day verse 60 that all the peoples of the earth may know that there is a lord That the lord is god and there is no other All right. Let me ask you a different question. I asked one earlier. Let me ask you something different Have you ever had someone that you've loved or trusted? Leave you Have you ever had someone that you've loved or trusted leave you volitionally Have you had someone that you've loved or trusted walk away from you or reject you Neglect you although you needed them There's few heartaches for those who can relate to that There's few heartaches as great as being left by those that we love It can be just heart -rending to have someone's presence in your life there for a season and then in a different season in your Life when you desperately need them They're not there If you've experienced that You may find that even months or years later that the hole hasn't gone away It still hurts With that said notice what solomon said in verses 57 through 60 He said may the lord our god Be with us as with our fathers. May he not leave us or ever forsake us You know the gods of the pagans disappeared at times They went off and did their own thing, which is why elijah mocked bale and the others perhaps your god is sleepy We need to wake him up is what he told on mount karma what he told the prophets of bale The pagans had gods that could go away for a season the greek same deal That gods would be busy up on mount olympus, maybe they'd care for you one day maybe they wouldn't But here solomon tells his people and god tells us That he's with us just as he was with our fathers just as he was with moses Whether you're here your name is bob or stew or frank or fran God's with you. God's with you every bit as much as he was with moses That's an encouraging thought because We don't feel like moses most of the time But his presence is with us his presence is with our church And so solomon says, you know if we understand that and we cleave to him our future is bright It's so bright because the right man is on our side the man king. Jesus The right man is on our side, you know, even if the whole world should turn against you Which given enough time it might Even the whole world should turn against you. God won't even if every other promise is broken If even if every loyal friend breaks ranks with you in the time that they come god won't And when you're hurting in that midnight hour when you feel all alone, he says i'm with you And we got this together I'm with you and we got this. All right, let's look at our last verse verse 61 our last verse So now he's encouraging the people about how to respond to these promises and god's presence and the like verse 61 He tells the people and you can imagine his hands that he says it he says let your heart therefore Be loyal to lord our god Let your heart therefore be loyal to lord our god to walk in his statutes and keep his commandments as it is this day This is a benediction of sorts it's a blessing It's also an exhortation And in this exhortation king solomon tells people what he told them previously He says if we believe all this to be true if we believe there is a god in heaven if we believe that he loves us If we believe he's told us how to live Then the evidence of that belief is not simply what we profess with our mouth the israelis profess things all the time That wasn't their problem It's what they did with it how they acted how they responded Remember, we've talked about the difference between orthodoxy and orthopraxy orthodoxy is the easy part orthodoxy is just accepting propositional theological truth And saying amen. Amen what's harder is going out those doors and acting accordingly So solomon he puts his hands out and says hey Aaa Be careful to be loyal to our god and to keep his statutes his laws and his judgments Let me ask you do you remember you remember what your first car was? I got in trouble. I talked about cars recently What was it pinto? Was that what it was something like that? I got in trouble I called out a car and someone said that was my car. So i'm not gonna do that I'll call out my first car. My first car was a brown mazda b2000 pickup Man alive they were a lot smaller and they're making pickups these days pickups these days or something else You know, I had this little thing going down the road and like so I had this mazda b2000 pickup now I did love the car. It was my first car So of course, I loved it and I waxed it and polished it and shined it and like at first Then I went to college and still had the car and I had other priorities or other things that interested me other pursuits for my time and suddenly it wasn't even just a lack of washing the car Other things like I don't know oil changes just things that you just should do, you know, the common sense stuff I was like nah this This car hasn't let me down before right? I mean, I didn't give it an oil change in the last month So it probably doesn't need this one month. Well kick that forward a while. What happens i'll tell you what happens It ends up with me on i -5 north of eugene oregon on the side of the road having Say flipped a rod. I'm those you know cars better. I don't know what happened bruised a rod broke a rod Whatever there was a rod involved and it stopped working And so the car stopped working and it never drove again. That was it I kissed a goodbye it went on a tow truck and it was and it was gone We tend to prioritize the things that are important to us It's easy to ascend to propositional truth when it's right in front of us the people there at that time With the new temple and the hurrahs and you know the celebrations and the dinner on the grounds They were having back in this day. The people were excited. It wasn't hard to get them excited It wasn't hard for them to get amen and all that the hard part was in nurturing and caring For that which god entrusted to them down the road and for prioritizing the same things through their actions that they prioritize with their lips Right here and the sad thing was that they wouldn't When I say this is the high point of israel's history up to this point i've been it What does that imply? It implies that things got worse Which they did God made a promise I got you I got you in your future And they had made promises to the differences. They didn't keep theirs And so they backslid in the most egregious of ways to the point to the sad point as we studied in our review of ezekiel Last year whenever it was To the sad point that the same god who came to dwell in this temple in first kings chapter 8 would leave it and ezekiel 10 He would depart the temple leave it as ikabat empty of his glory There's things that have been trusted to matters of faith if you're a parent if you're a father There's things that have been entrusted to you to look out after your loved ones to nurture their faith To take care of their faith to take care of your own faith so that it doesn't get broken down on the side of the road When life circumstances throw you a curveball, which is inevitable There's bins in the road. You can't see coming So The way that we grow and sustain our faith is by immersing ourselves in the faith by doing what god has Said all right before we wrap up or in closing here I want you to notice at the very end of verse 61 He says something interesting and at first when I looked at this text a few years ago I missed it, but I don't want to miss it today verse 61 He said let your heart therefore be loyal to the lord our god to walk in the statutes and keep his commandments And then he adds these four words as at this day Solomon knew the people's history He wanted them to have that particular day emblazoned on their mind to do that Which they had promised to do that day in the time yet to come and yet As we said just a moment ago They wouldn't Roughly 400 years later after this text That day would be a distant memory and they would have forgotten it 400 years later there would be no more cheering There would only be what we call lamentation There would only be disaster Roughly 400 years later as we said before god's glory would depart the babylonians would show up. That's a bad trade They gave up the glory of god. They received the babylonians Ezekiel 10 says this the glory lord departed from the threshold of the temple and stood over the cherubim and the cherubim mounted up from the earth in his sight Same temple look Can that happen to a church to a denomination a nation? Yes, yes, and yes It can happen if we don't keep the first things first It can happen if we don't prioritize that which we're called to prioritize It can happen if we stop trusting god and start trusting ourselves It can happen if we ignore what god has said in his word And start coming up with our own precepts and following the wills and wants of our own hearts In this passage that we've read today Solomon god through psalm is reminding the people that hey, there's some intentionality i've made you a promise and yet and yet There is a degree of intentionality on your part That your future is going to be heavily predicated upon. What will it be? What will it be are you going to be zealous to do the very things that you promised me on First kings 8 that you promised you say you're going to do you say amen. Amen. Are you going to do that? You won't if you're not intentional about it and in time In time the temple might be empty and in time churches or denominations can follow suit and if you don't think that's possible Go to europe Go to new england Just see places that once not that long ago resonated that once With at least a cultural religiosity And all likelihood of something far stronger now be turned to just empty husks of what they once were If it could happen in israel if it could happen in europe if it happened to england it could happen in the bible belt Our responsibility Is to cling to that which god has delivered us once for all through the saints And to champion no matter what the world tells us no matter what's going on in the culture around us Let the culture go to the wind This is what we're called to adhere to and salman put it before the people in an old testament context Said do this and live The same is true for us Let's pray Join, dr. Toby holt and dr.

Toby Harnden Shares a Story From on the Ground in Afghanistan
"You mentioned this story, the prison uprising, Mike spann, a former marine CIA paramilitary. For those who know nothing, give us the story of that incredible event and what that man did. Yeah. It is incredible. And so November 25th, 2001. Two CIA officers walk into this fort called calla jangi, which means literally like fort of war outside mazar I Sharif. Now, backing up a little bit mazarin Sharif had fallen to northern alliance forces, aided by our allies. Our allies aided by the CIA green berets and air force combat controllers and the awesome might have U.S. air power overhead on November 10th. Now, less than a month earlier, Mike spann had been one of 8 CIA officers who landed in the Darius souf valley, aboard two Black Hawk helicopters that had flown in from Kashi Khan about K two, a former Soviet air base that Uzbekistan government had given over to the Americans for this post 9 11 mission. So October 17th, 2001, they land at dropped into the unknown. First Americans behind America. So we are barely barely a month out since 9 11. Yeah. First Americans behind them enemy lines. Now there had been a CIA team called jawbreaker that had landed in the pantry of Ali on September 26th, but that was, you know, relatively speaking safe territory controlled by the northern alliance. But this was enemy territory, Taliban controlled territory. So 8 of them, four of them were paramilitaries, one of those was Mike span. So when paramilitary is somebody who's been seconded, usually from the military and is working in the CIA using their skills for the CIA. Yeah, usually they actually in the CIA sometimes their contractors or people who've been seconded and on some of the other teams that were actually serving members of the Delta force and seals. But the four paramount trees on team alpha were serving CIOs special activities, division. Scott spellman, who was on the cover of the book, he was later became very senior, it was the senior CIA guy on the National Security Council during the Trump administration. He became station chief in Kabul, but then a young officer, but already battle hardened he had been wounded in the battle of Mogadishu in Somalia in 1993. It was a guy called Alex Hernandez, who was the deputy chief, who was a sergeant major, gone full career in special forces and then joined the agency and two case officers, JRC, who was the chief who'd worked with the CIA out of Islamabad in the 1980s against the Soviets for the supply and stinger missiles to the mujahideen and David Tyson who you mentioned at the beginning who was with Mike span on November 25th 2001. So they're in unfriendly territory. This is the Ford of war, walk us through that event. So David was a case officer based in Tashkent and spoke Uzbek almost fluently. And so he's the linguist and the main linguist on the team, although JR, seger also he spoke diary, which was the sort of lingua franca in Afghanistan. But on that day, the team split, there's a big fight, a hundred miles to the east. It expected in Kunduz so the bulk of American forces are there. But the night before 400 Al-Qaeda prisoners had arrived on the eastern edge of mazarin reef to surrender, and it was extremely murky why they were there. They should have been surrendering in Kunduz. And basically, I mean, what I was able to establish almost beyond doubt is that this was a Trojan horse operation. It was a deliberate trap. Yeah, it was a Taliban Al-Qaeda operation to put pretend that for these 400 fighters had surrendered, but in fact they were made up remained armed. They sort of exploited Afghan custom to keep their weapons with them and they were planning an uprising. Because you can have lots of people surrender at once if it's a regular army during the Gulf War, we had thousands of Iraqis surrender at once. When it's irregular fighters, you don't usually get hundreds of them surrendering at the same time. It's a little bit
Toby Harnden Shares a Story From on the Ground in Afghanistan
"You mentioned this story, the prison uprising, Mike spann, a former marine CIA paramilitary. For those who know nothing, give us the story of that incredible event and what that man did. Yeah. It is incredible. And so November 25th, 2001. Two CIA officers walk into this fort called calla jangi, which means literally like fort of war outside mazar I Sharif. Now, backing up a little bit mazarin Sharif had fallen to northern alliance forces, aided by our allies. Our allies aided by the CIA green berets and air force combat controllers and the awesome might have U.S. air power overhead on November 10th. Now, less than a month earlier, Mike spann had been one of 8 CIA officers who landed in the Darius souf valley, aboard two Black Hawk helicopters that had flown in from Kashi Khan about K two, a former Soviet air base that Uzbekistan government had given over to the Americans for this post 9 11 mission. So October 17th, 2001, they land at dropped into the unknown. First Americans behind America. So we are barely barely a month out since 9 11. Yeah. First Americans behind them enemy lines. Now there had been a CIA team called jawbreaker that had landed in the pantry of Ali on September 26th, but that was, you know, relatively speaking safe territory controlled by the northern alliance. But this was enemy territory, Taliban controlled territory. So 8 of them, four of them were paramilitaries, one of those was Mike span. So when paramilitary is somebody who's been seconded, usually from the military and is working in the CIA using their skills for the CIA. Yeah, usually they actually in the CIA sometimes their contractors or people who've been seconded and on some of the other teams that were actually serving members of the Delta force and seals. But the four paramount trees on team alpha were serving CIOs special activities, division. Scott spellman, who was on the cover of the book, he was later became very senior, it was the senior CIA guy on the National Security Council during the Trump administration.

Who Is 'First Casualty' Author Toby Harnden?
"Before we get into these amazing stories, Mike span, David Tyson, John walker lind, who is Toby Honda. Tell us about what you did in the British armed forces and your life as a journalist before you became an author. Yes, well, you know, we share a somewhat similar accent as listeners and viewers will detect. You still got yours. Our minds kind of rubbing off a little bit, but I don't know. I'm worried. I'm worried about mind getting a little bit Americanized. But I trust yeah, you're a bit soggy in the middle of the Atlantic somewhere. Yeah, I mean the ace. So yeah, I'm 56 years old, I was born in 66. My father was in the navy. We moved around, we sort of ended up in Manchester, industrial city in the northwest. You don't have a mancunian accent. I think the Royal Navy actually did for the mancunian accent, which was pretty skin deep anyway. But you know, I sort of, you know, I wanted to follow in my father's footstep, I guess there's so many sort of young men do. And I also wanted to get out of Manchester and see the world and it just seemed like a very kind of insular sort of small sort of place. And so all that teenage angst was just channeled towards working hard to get out. And so I got a sponsorship from the I joined the navy at 18. Went to Dartmouth, which is the Britannia royal naval college, kind of the equivalent of the U.S. naval academy at Annapolis, but not really because it's more basic officers training. It's like santas is shorter. Yeah, that's right. I mean, I was there for less than a year. And I threw the navy I got a sponsorship to Oxford to study modern history, so I went off whilst serving naval officer, although I barely wore the uniform for those years apart from a few months sailing around sort of Hong Kong and the far east and Australia. So I had some good times. Yes, exactly. So I was serving naval officer for three years at college and then graduated from college and was pitched in to a career. Which I enjoyed immensely, but you know, it was after the Falklands War, which was 1982, I was joining and supplying to join just sort of join the Falklands actually, age 16. But I missed that. I was stationed in Scotland for the Gulf War, tried very hard to get involved. They managed to that's a long way away from Iraq. I know. They managed to win it without meeting my services. And I remember my boss at the time said, listen to, we don't worry about it. There's going to be plenty of time for medals. And I remember thinking, no, there won't. And of course I left after ten years of service without a single
'First Casualty' Author Toby Harnden on the Early War on Terror
"Him. He is toe behind and he's the author of a book called first casualty the untold story of the CIA mission to avenge 9 11. Toby, welcome to one on one. Thanks very much to the best in great to be with you. So we could you have kind of reinvented yourself in the last year or since this book came out. I see this very, very nicely curated posts on Instagram elsewhere with these iconic photographs from the battle zones from the mountains of Afghanistan, where you're taking a snippet of this incredible story and illustrating an individual and event. Let me start with the big picture. So I came to this issue of the gwa as a guy who done can a terrorism stuff. I was in the reserves in the British territorial army, then worked at the Rand corporation on Al-Qaeda issues. And then I looked at this question of insurgency and counter insurgency foreign internal defenses brack calls it. And I was convinced of the following. For all the weaknesses of the last 21 years, what America, with a very select number of allies and locals did, in the October of 2001, was absolutely incredible. In terms of small footprint, special operators paramilitaries with a tiny investment of manpower, creating a strategic effect, should be a case study of how it's done. And I think your book shares that analysis. I think in a way it is that case study, I agree with you absolutely. I mean, this is a period in time when we had hundreds of Americans on the ground. We're a handful. Yes. Not the 100,000 we had a decade later. And they were CIA paramilitaries, CIA case officers, green berets, U.S. Air Force combat controllers, and they were working by with and through. Which is the phrase. If you're not familiar, this is the, you know, the green berets, the in theater, irregular warfare, by with and through is how you look at the locals. That's right. By with them through the indigenous allies, and the indigenous allies were the northern alliance in the north a few pashtuns in the south, who were the resistance to the foreign invaders. The Americans weren't foreign invaders. My sort of contention really is that there wasn't an American invasion of Afghanistan until
EQT Corp. CEO Toby Rice Defends U.S. Natural Gas Prices
"Now, Toby rice is a CEO, oil and gas, listen to this. It's an old stale left wing argument. It's like gas stations are going to collude to have higher prices. But have you responded to that or what would you say if she comes at you for that? If referring to Kamala Harris also talking about price price gouging on the part of oil and gas companies. I think it's an amazing argument. It's a tough argument to make because the reality is natural gas is a commodity. The price is set by supply and demand. And if people were able to set the price for this product, tell that to the dozens of energy companies that went bankrupt over the last 24 months. Clearly there's no ability to control gas prices. But what people can do to influence gas prices is what a lot of anti infrastructure people have done, which is prevent our products from getting to market. And it's as simple as blocking pipeline infrastructure, and this is a reason why Elizabeth Warren is importing gas into her state of Massachusetts and by the way, penguins, international prices. When she's got the biggest natural gas deposit in the world, 200 miles away in Pennsylvania. It's all about just connecting this market with the demand. Isn't it Russian gas? By the way. Yeah, it's Russian gas and actually a lot of it's coming from Trinidad and Tobago. So we're talking about moving gas 3000 miles away to get it to actually my mom's where my mom lives in Boston. It's completely ridiculous. Actually, when you think about it, we're exporting around 12 and a half BCF of gas a day. That's an amazing thing. But our tankers with LNG are passing as they're heading to as they're heading to Europe. They're waving as Russian LNG cargoes are bringing gas to Elizabeth Warren's home state. I know it's a remarkable bizarre approach. So when the prices go up, the left accuses the olding gas company of price gouging when the price goes down. Well, they change

I've i can't think clearly lately you know my i've lost my memory all the i'm having these weird cognitive symptoms you know then we could look at okay. What is what is the brain doing right now. And how is that different from the last. Eeg that you had done in which you were feeling a lot better. So i think. I think you know incorporating neuro technology neuro therapy into you. Know it really. It could go as as broad as your general practitioner but i. i think that that could be super powerful. Going forward in the future right. So i'm hearing you say basically making sure that the brain is included as part of the general health care. That's being provided listen. I'm toby thank you so much for being here.

Today's perspective comes from toby. Pass men. He is a neuro therapist. He is right now. Based in oregon he is going to be moving his operation down to miami florida. He is a millennial. A member of generation y and he joins us today. Toby thanks for being here man rob. It's a pleasure. Thanks for having me on. You bet so. Tell me a little bit about yourself. And your role in healthcare. Because i'm not familiar with what a neuro therapist is as. I'm sure a lot of people are in it's a it's kind of a new emerging role. I'd say in healthcare. So how i got into this work i would say i kind of always had curiosity revolving around. You know why we think the way we do. Why our brains work. The way they do and that curiosity led me into taking some psychology classes in college and i really fell in love with the bio psychology class where we understood kind of the biological basis the electrical and chemical functioning of the brain and the fact that we could actually measure. That was super cool to me. So i ended up working in What's called an eeg lab. So eeg short for an electro encephalogram which is basically a swim cap looking device that is placed on person's head and is able to actually record the electrical activity that emanates from your brain up to your scalp so actually able to detect the electrical What are called brainwaves. And that kind of led me that that was kind of my introduction to this kind of field of of neuro technology if you will and then a couple years after college i took a job working at a substance abuse and mental health treatment facility in south florida where i was actually using a neuro technology to actually alter the eeg so because With the eeg were able to see which areas of the brain producing healthy quantities of different brainwaves When that is not the case when there's abnormal electrical activity which can result from head. Injuries substance abuse mental health conditions. We can actually use certain types of neuro technology to actually alter the electrical brainwaves..

"Look isn't this the problem. I mean i. I've been following a lot of this news around this aid tip in the ua peas and all the different terminology and the people who were pushing this agenda getting the government to officially report on this. And i guess the thing is it's like there's videos coming from the navy and these stories here from the air force. Nobody's going to general quarters. Nobody's sounding an alarm. Nobody's like putting everybody an alert. Nobody's firing like you know it's like you've got a few people who happen to have the authority of government job. You know talking about this stuff and the entire. Ufo community is leaching relevance like. They're they're like pulling all the importance because people within the government talking about it but the government's huge is not a monolith. It's it's all these different compartments and departments in in in so of course when you've got hundreds of thousands of people you know in government positions. Some of those people are going to be ufo enthusiasts of the kind that skeptics are annoyed by. You know I find it. I find it really disturbing how the media lately latched onto this This lease late late. The recent themes around around these press releases the new york times story. That kind of stuff but in your in your show. You're going back and looking at the historical use of the government's research into this. And so you talk about how. There's these different government programs to investigate the the the question. Now i know some people may think well that's flying saucers. That's not the same as what we have now. But it's still the same kind of scenario and i. I really think you do a good job of Contextualising that and looking like this really nice historical Look at these different approaches. And i can't wait to see where you're going next. But can you talk a little bit about Some of those early government programs to try to find out what was going on or whatever their agenda may be because a lot of people knew afo community would argue. Those weren't sincere investigations. Talk a little bit about that. And i realized that was a rambling question. So please state your question in a question form. Yeah exactly. Can you tell me about project. Blue book the condon report grudge those programs. What is the blue book so project. Blue book is the one that's best known. It was the first one in nineteen forty seven Let's take a step back as listeners. May nineteen forty. Seven is sort of the kickoff of the modern ufo era. It's kenneth arnold seeing a bunch of flying sort of that wing type things around mount rainier than a couple of weeks later. It's roswell even though that doesn't sort of pablo to public attention for a few more decades but in nineteen forty seven against there's enough of that stuff that The air force starts a small project to try to figure out what's going on Is call project sign that becomes renamed project grudge couple years later and then finally becomes project blue book around nineteen fifty and so the idea there. Is you know it's late forties early fifties. So what's going on the skies a lot different than what's going on in the sky now just in terms of you know there arm satellites wide fewer planes and i can't remember what book i was reading but somebody who's making the interesting point that people just you know you didn't look people didn't look up in the sky is much there just wasn't as much there to concern you and so suddenly people are seeing things in the sky and it's like what it. What is it in an edge. You would imagine the early days of this of this kind of thing. Things are pretty easily explained. Whether it's it's planets that people are seeing or or birds or you know whatever whatever kind of natural phenomenon you can think of that debt. Now we would say well of course but about twenty percent of things that they're having a little harder time figuring out exactly what they were put together a panel called the robertson panel in the early fifties to kind of take a look at what they found Suitors anything that's interesting. They sort of come to the conclusion that there is not and that really the big concern. Is that the russians might use your foes to kind of freak us out General panic that's what they're most concerned about and so they suggest that we do better job of educating our students about about science critical thinking so it continues it continues goes on until about nineteen seventy. I kind of focus on j allen hynek who was the consulting scientists for project mubarak is served this interesting character in that when he he signs on very early. Nineteen forty seven and and he's initially a skeptic and just figures you know he'll be able to solve these things pretty quickly and as time goes on he does a lot of investigations and again. He's find that most of the stuff is very easily explained but there's a small percentage that that's harder and there are specific. Case is that he kind of runs into that he you know he has a hard time coming up with a satisfactory answer. For and by the time project blue book starts to wind down. So in the late sixties he's starting to waver a little bed and he's starting to think that maybe the air force is in is interested in finding out which really behind these things as it is just sort of explaining them away so the other thing. That's interesting about high. Nick is that more than you'd expect from a guy who's a scientist. He's also really into paranormal stuff. So from an early age he's been interested in serve esoteric topics and in the sixties and seventies gets interested in sort of out of body experiences and psychic photography and Different things like that and he starts have these ideas that maybe. ufo's are actually actually extra dimensional They're not they're not extraterrestrial they're from another dimension that we can sort of interact with them every once in a while so.

Go ahead, Victor. There you go. Um, I'm calling in because, um, I'm legally blind and I just don't watch new t V or movies that much at all anymore. Um, it's become much much too visuals, and I prefer watching the old T V shows of YouTube when my fiance is over at the House. And the few times I have gone to the movies in the last few years. The audio description never works right and she has to end up describing. What's what's going on. And I really and truly wish that the script riders would do what they used to do. Um, when television first came out They were so used to writing radio scripts that I could follow the dialogue and know what was going on. For instance, if there was a fight scene, one of the characters will say, beaten and sobbing. Made this guy tell me where he hid the gold. And, you know, stuff something like that. Or if there's a letter being read, Um you'll hear the person reading the letter. Um, as you know, thinking out loud. It sounds like a little bit of an echo, and you can Hear her reading the letter. Now someone's got to read that because they don't even bother, uh, doing that anymore. So I guess that's my big beef with With Hollywood make the movies more audio descriptive. Just write it into the script, and then you don't have to have audio descriptions. Okay? Alright. Victor's follows wcbm night and day, So thank you, Victor. Kate, I know you have something. Someone that died this week. What? We're gonna do a break first, right then. And then we'll get back to kill. Okay again. This is movie talk. We're coming back..

With ‘The Underground Railroad,’ Barry Jenkins looks squarely at Black trauma
"Underground railroad was a network of abolitionists routes to free slaves. But what if it was an actual railroad with a train chugging toward freedom? That's the premise of Colson Whitehead's Pulitzer Prize winning novel, now adapted by Barry Jenkins into a 10 episode miniseries. This isn't a straightforward, inspirational narrative like Harriet. This combines the brutality of roots with the social commentary of watchman and a hint of magical realism like the Polaroids.

This, however, is the first time chili that we're hearing about her crazy first date experience. Tell us what happened How you met this guy? And what made it so cuckoo.

He had me stop at the liquor store, and I thought, Okay, it's gonna run you to get maybe some gum or surely you're back in to buy something to take into the theater and comes out with the bag. You know, there's something in the bag of that holiday persuasion and too little violence soda, So we're driving to the theater, and he's literally cracks open the liquor and he's taken.

And suddenly you anything do you know he's like No one find all the while His stone is going off and he's ignoring it. Hitting the ignore button. I'm like, OK. You sure you're good?

So I did finally talked to him and tell him, you know, I don't think you know you get to work on Monday.

Concerts Are the Best Kind of Medical Experiments
"Without herd immunity society is bound to start reopening so over in the uk researches trying to figure out what kind of events people can go to without causing the virus to stop spreading out of control again and the way they are trying to figure it out just maybe the greatest science experiment of all time live. Music is starting to make a comeback as a way to track krona virus progress. The english city of liverpool hosted a one off music festival yesterday to test whether such events spread the virus about five thousand people ditched face coverings and social distancing rules to attend outdoor event. And they just had to test negative for covert i and agree to follow up. Tests and five days data from the festival will be used by the governments of research program to help understand the effects of crowds on the spread of the virus. And the festival's organizers says. He hopes the project will help get outdoor events back on the calendar this year all year a concert. That's my kind of medical experiment of louis. Pasteur in bullshit with a dog. The best part of it is no one court covert but sadly one hundred people did. Come down with indian. But that's right. Thousands of people showed up to a concert and the purpose was to see see if they would catch covert which must be honest. Doesn't seem like a real idea right. That seems like some are ruled that happened. You can get it right fire and if you ask me i think an experimental concert is a great idea. Not just for covert. I mean you can test for all sorts of things you can test for the effect of constantly dropping. The beats can finally find out. Does that hurt. The beat can the be even feel pain and will the beat be able to go on. One of the most here is how many volunteers they got to submit to medical experimentation. Just because they wanted to see a concert. I mean you realize this means. They could ramp up experimental on everything just based on. Who's performing can we. Please take your kidneys. We need to test something. What no we'll give you tickets to be on say. Oh my god take them both. Toby answer their mind telling their my kidneys. Maybe she'll say about the

Okay, night with sometimes in my local bar, and I saw a guy at the bar. I wish you don't happens often, and we made eye contact within seconds and I am a very outgoing person, So I went right over and started talking him and leave. Up real good. And and I'm taking it home s o. You know, the next morning, we wake up and I assume he could leave. But he says no. I want to hang out with you. We were both off from work, and I said to him, Well, that's great. But I am due to get my own changed by my ex boyfriend today, and he's like, okay, I'll come along, so I said, Are you sure he's like, Yeah, so we drive over to my ex boyfriends and they start talking. They seem the legs together. He's my ex wife and I were cool. We don't just broken off two months before they change my oil together, which was really weird to watch. And then my question was like he seems cool. Let's go out on the boat, so he had a boat on the lake. So we all three went out on the boat. And we spent like, four hours just pulling around the lake and the new guy making out in the back of the boat, my ex boyfriend driving the boat. This is super awkward on a whole lot of levels. I'm texting my mom the whole time. You're not gonna believe what's happening right now. I'm shocked at the break up. It only happened like two months before. That's not a whole lot of time. No, and we were together. We were together two years. We? It was It was a good break up like it wasn't horrible if we were so, like, talking and being friendly, all right, So here you are out on the boat with the guy from last night and the ex, Um did they compare notes like that in my present? Okay. So after what I did go to the bathroom at one point Who knows what they talked about? When I was in the bathroom. This is all. Technically still your first state and the day you had this guy it's now over 24 hours later. What happened next? Oh, it racket longer so way, leaving the boat and go back to my place. And he wants to stay another night. I'm like, Okay, Cool. We both had the next day off by Friday. We will take Friday off days. The next night. They say that night again. We spend all day and then Friday everything you think of we really like each other, apparently. And then Friday night. We leave each other Friday night because we both had work the next morning, and he and I made plans to meet after work the next day, and then we were together for three years. You know, we're no longer together. But it was a three year relationship from a three day date. Three days first date. Wow. From the moment you met you took off running with this guy. Good Greek girlfriend. You are the Alfa female apex Predator of all Alfa female Apex predators. The extroverts in the personality profile OMG. My acted comment to me after he said he seemed really cool. He handled his own. So that was good. Sounds like the two of you handled each other's own. Just saying Just out of curiosity for me, Amy, did you stay friends with him to like you did your other ex or no? Well, he and I actually got engaged, and it actually ended way worse. And the other acts don't know We're not friends anymore. That's one of the greatest crazy first date stories we've ever heard.

I decided that I had always wanted to go to being up in Harpers Ferry. So asked her to go and she was game for it and so awfully headed. We're getting to the edge of the rapid. She looks up River and she says it looks like there's a storm on its way. I looked and I said, Ah, you know, well out run, it will be on the run. Happens here, she says. I don't know. I think we should go back. I'm not having it because I paid for the date and it's not really a cheap date. I said no, we're doing this. We're going down the rapids and then the storm starts coming. So she says, I'm going on these rocks with these other people. And I said Fine by now. I knew it was really not going too well. I went on ahead well, the storm breaks and people are clinging to the rocks in the middle of the river and stuff covering themselves and me and a study group of Of other paddlers kept on with it, and I mean it rained so hard you couldn't see 20 ft. It's lightning, and it's just a heck of a storm. My only last 10 minutes, you know, blows right over us. And finally I get down to the end of the rapid and I'm looking for my date, and I don't fear and people keep coming ashore. And so finally, after about 30 minutes, I see two tubers with two guys and a girl in between them and they're bringing order show and she does not look places. And she staggers up onto the shore. And I'm like, Oh, boy, I was I was kind of great. I didn't know where you work. She doesn't say a word to me. When we get back on the past, we go back to the staging area and we get to look to the car to come home. She turns to me. What point did you think this was a good idea? Shrug and I dropped her off at her apartment. You know, after I pulled away, I laughed so hard. I had to pull into the Wegmans parking lot. I laughed and So I cried because because of such a disaster that itwas and that's my story, and there was never a second day. I should add that no Tex return. No calls were picked up. That was it. I never thought that would be it, Joe. You know, you really are such a chivalrous man. What the heck were you thinking? How do you think she'd react? You just you just completely deserted her.

Well, you're back in the studio, and I was impressed that they took down all the Christmas decorations from the holiday time. But I don't know that you could say the same for your place. Like what is wrong with you? Well, my Christmas tree is all white. I used the all white 6 ft variant this year with the pre lit, you know, canned lights and stuff.

I like the fact that it's lit up and I think over the weekend I'm going to take the Christmas ornaments off and safely stashed those And instead I'm going to put on the tree for the next week, Little red hearts so it'll become kind of like a Valentine's tree. We've heard this before. And then there's ST Patrick's Day. And then there's springtime themes and such. But these red hearts that you speak of. Are you cutting them out with little cardboard pieces of paper? Or are you buying heart ornament? Why would I cut them out when I can get them for 9 99 on Amazon delivered same day with prime delivery. You actually looked at it? Oh, yes. And my search history algorithms are all screwed up. Because Amazon thinks I've lost my mind. And after Valentine's Day you're right. I'm gonna find green shamrocks. And then I'm gonna put Easter eggs up and cherry blossoms. Don't forget that.
