Fr. Mike discusses the story of Jeremiah and the Ark of the Covenant, offering insight on where it was hidden and how that affected the people of God. He also looks ahead to the rest of 2 Maccabees and poses a question for all of us: What will the people who love us remember about us? Today's readings are 2 Maccabees 2, Sirach 42-44, and Proverbs 24:8-9. For the complete reading plan, visit ascensionpress.com/bibleinayear.

It was something about a dead man that Paul insisted was now alive. That's what Festus said. Festus got the message. Somehow through all the confusion and false accusations and pride and politicking and intrigue, that message was clear to him, a dead man is now alive. And this man who is now alive was God. And he radiated God's light into this dark world. He came to overcome deaths grip on humanity. He's come as the Prophet said he would to bring God's resurrection, life and light to people living in darkness. Isaiah, the prophet said, the people who walk in darkness will see a great light. For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine. That's what God has done for Paul. Paul was living in darkness, he was blind to the true nature and character of God. He was blind to what God was up to in this world, despite all his religious expertise, he could not see. So God helped him to see what he couldn't. He struck him blind. An object lesson he could not miss. And God opened his eyes. Scales came off, and he could see. And what he saw was God, revealed to him in Jesus. And what he saw in Jesus was nothing like Paul had ever imagined God to be. This Jesus was giving his light and life to Paul who had it all wrong. And this Jesus was giving his light and life to everyone who's had it all wrong. To Jews and Gentiles alike. God has come to bring the light and life to the whole world. And Paul could see it. Ours is to repent of all the ways we have it wrong about God, and follow him. Just like Paul. And when that happens, we can begin to experience the life we so deeply want the life that we were made for. Do you have it all wrong about God? Part of this Christian life is allowing God room to make those corrections, to remove those scales to help us see things we could not see. To expand the boundaries of our own heart, to give us eyes to see even more. Do you have him boxed in from loving people you are sure he cannot love and he cannot embrace? Well, then hear Paul's words today and begin to see what he saw. That's the prayer that I have for my own soul. That's the period that I have for my family for my wife, my daughters, my son, and that's the prayer that I have for you. May be so

Ministry can become heavy with burdens. What does the Bible have to say about that? Listen as Pastor Vlad shares a key lesson with our staff members here at Hungry Generation regarding leadership and people. Notes: Numbers 11:7-17 Babysitting is burdensome. God did not accept Moses' resignation. He shifted the burden. God didn't remove the burden. He made it be so that Moses didn't bear it alone. Choosing Leaders: 1. Whom you know to be the elders, not those who have the potential. - elders are made by God but recognized by men 2. That they may stand there with you. - leaders are supporting him and strengthened by the virtue of their presence 3. I will take the Spirit on you and put it on them. - they must share the same heart, the same vision… 4. Shall bear the burden of people with you. - they shall share the load of ministry The blessing of ministry comes with the burden of ministry.
The CabalaNeville Goddard1/15/1965 "This past Wednesday I had occasion to go to an old Bible of mine and there I found two letters of my friend old Abdullah. I had long forgotten them, for they were given to me back in 1930 or '31. They are now molding and falling apart. They were simply instructions on the Cabala. And the first portion of them would not interest you because it's all very technical in Hebrew, but there are other portions of it that I know will interest you. And this is what he said in one: “Creatures are never guilty of the seeming wrongs they do. The Lord ordained all deeds, and he alone performs all that is performed.” That's what it starts with. He accuses no one of evil, for all have fulfilled his command and performed his service. If there is evil, I the Lord alone am evil (Is. 45:7)."

We're covering several stories from the news today, starting off with the revelation that Dr. Fauci facilitated painful experiments on dogs, funded by taxpayer money. While that is awful and deserving of contempt, it's strange how much people care about this compared to how much people care about experimentation with aborted babies. We also discuss the mainstream media's complete misunderstanding of the "let's go Brandon" phenomenon. Then, Jason Whitlock, BlazeTV host of "Fearless with Jason Whitlock," joins the show to discuss the strange turn of events that has BLM in New York protesting against vaccine mandates, as well as one journalist's accusation that Condoleezza Rice is a "foot soldier for white supremacy" because of her views on critical race theory. We end things on a positive note, with a story from Louisiana about local dads helping out at a school that had previously seen a record amount of fighting and violence. --- Timecodes: (0:00) Intro (1:13) The National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Disease — led by Dr. Fauci — experimented on dogs & it was taxpayer-funded!?!

Ezra is an important book to understanding the history, context and place of Israel, God's chosen people, in the Bible. The Lord stirred Cyrus King of Persia's heart to release the Jews from Babylon, just as Isaiah had prophesied over a hundred years before. This is the story of those Exiles from Babylon returning, the difficulties they faced and how the Lord led them, corrected them and nurtured them through triumphs and hardship. I encourage you to read through Ezra once a week for ten weeks to get the most out of this study. -----------LINKS---------- Support 10WB on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/10weekbible The 10 Week Bible - http://www.10WeekBible.com Twitter: @DarrenHibbs - https://twitter.com/DarrenHibbs Sign up for my newsletter - http://www.darrenhibbs.com Get a copy of the 10 Week Bible Study today - https://www.amazon.com/Darren-Hibbs/e/B00B4I47CE/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=sl2&tag=darrenhcom0a-20&linkId=401f3d79974c70929517936977e32df9 My other YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChUU0XHSHuhSyN8qk-7efYg

Many Christians are victims of wrong assumptions about God's will. They think it's too hard to find, or they believe that God will force His will to happen regardless of what they do. These ideas hinder people from achieving their potential and fulfilling their purpose. But this teaching brings good news: God has a plan for you, and it doesn't have to remain a mystery!

God calls us into His story through Christ. But before we place ourselves in the middle of His story, we need to remember the Bible is God's grand story of redemption through His Son, Jesus Christ. Olivia Lane's new song "Woman At The Well" inspires us to explore a story in John 4 afresh. Join me as we study this story in context and learn more about Jesus.

I love this encouragement from the book, Everyday Faithfulness. She says, “As you press forward with regular faithfulness admit a mountain of laundry, a rotation of diaper changes and nighttime feedings, or basic acts of care for an aging parent, the Lord sees you. He knows you are weary, and he is working good from it. He has compassion on you when you struggle to pick up your Bible or sleep through prayer. Christ is your example, but he is also your helper as he intercedes for you to keep following him in faithfulness (rom. 8:34).

Today's readings are Job 16 and Acts 21-23. We are reading from the New Living Translation. Jesus appears to Paul and tells him to be encouraged. Paul, you're going to be my witness here, and in Rome. Paul had every reason to be discouraged. Many of his Jewish brothers who had come to Christ, were looking with suspicion on him. They didn't quite understand his teaching regarding grace. Those who had rejected the Way, looked to kill him. He had been beaten and locked up, once again. He was, no doubt, discouraged. And then there were those people who warned and begged him, all along the way, not to go to Jerusalem. And all those ominous signs that they had spoken of were coming to pass. It seemed to be playing out just the way they said it would. It was at this lowest of points, in the midst of discouragement, that Jesus appeared to Paul. Notice that Luke doesn't say that Paul saw Jesus in a vision. Jesus didn't send a ‘holy hologram'. Jesus showed up himself, inside the prison cell. And he told Paul to be encouraged. What an incredible moment that must have been for Paul. Imagine Jesus in the cell with you, talking to you, encouraging you. No doubt, that moment sustained him for a long time. It encouraged him for many more days to come – hard days. He had met with Jesus so he knew that Jesus was somehow directing and overseeing all of this messed up life that he was in the middle of. Some of you have experienced something like this. Maybe Jesus didn't physically show up in the prison cell with you, but at your lowest, when you were most discouraged, at that moment you experienced God's presence. It was at the moment, or during that season of your life, more than any other, that you experienced God's presence like no other. You experienced an overwhelming sense that God was with you, far more than when things were going right. The Holy Spirit has been given to us and He is a Counselor, a Comforter, and an Encourager. He is someone who can encourage us when we are in the midst of our hardest moments. The Holy Spirit will shine the light on Jesus, and shine the light of Jesus into our life. He will direct our heart to his Word – his word of encouragement to us. And when Jesus encourages us, we can hold on, we can keep going, we can find strength. Allow the Holy Spirit to shine his light on Jesus. Jesus is in the room with you now. He wants to encourage your heart, by letting you know that He has a plan in motion and he's with you each step of the way. It might seem like what's happening around you is chaos on wheels, but he wants you to know that he's with you. Live encouraged and strengthened by his abiding presence. He is with you.
We all want to know that someone is going to be there for us, no matter what. In this episode, Sr. Mariae Agnus Dei, SV and Sr. Marie Veritas, SV expand upon Chapter 3 of The Gospel of Life, and talk about how we can let Love into one of the most vulnerable times of life: the end of life. They break open the reality of treating the whole person, the Christian view of death and dying, the sacred gift of the person, the Christian meaning of human suffering, the freedom to love, and the power of vulnerability and compassionate presence. We invite you to bring others along with you in this journey of unpacking The Gospel of Life. Share it with your family, friends, parish group, or Bible study! If you'd like to, you're more than welcome to join us in reading the Chapter 3 of The Gospel of Life, and to think and pray with the reflection questions*! *There has been a slight delay in posing the reflection questions.

What do the verses say? 2. What's the backstory? What's the context? 3. What does it mean? What are the principles of this passage? What does it say? There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Outline of Romans 8: Romans 8:1 —The Promise Romans 8:24 — The How of the Promise Romans 8:14-15 — The Permeance of the Promise Romans 8:26-27 — The Confidence Romans 8:31-39 — Circling Back on How Awesome The Promises Are What's the backstory? Jesus is the fulfillment of the entire Old Testament system, which means he gets the set the conditions and declare that it is finished. He was the only perfect sacrifice who came as a man and embodied sinlessness. What does it mean? We have permanent adoption as sons and daughters of Christ Jesus. Because of this, holiness will become more evident in you as you see more of your darkness and sin. What does it mean for me? God is actually very involved and interested in being a part of your everyday life and decisions. The Spirit of God is living and has taken up residence in you. Resources: Help!
