Pastor Tom Ascol resumes his series on 2 Corinthians. In a message entitled “Characteristics of a Faithful Ministry, Part 1,” the pastor examines 2 Corinthians 4:1-6. We have seen in the series so far that false teachers had attacked Paul’s ministry, yet like to Corinthians we also may have trouble detecting false ministers. Sometimes they are not all easily detected. In this passage, Paul assesses some of the characteristics of a faithful ministry which should be evident in the work of faithful ministers. This sermon was given by Dr. Tom Ascol on March 13, 2016 at Grace Baptist Church in Cape Coral, FL.

The intelligent digital twin continues to transform the way that business is done in today's digital landscape. On this episode of the Digital Enterprise Society Podcast Thom Singer and Craig Brown welcome back one of the show's earliest guests, Dr. Michael Grieves, Executive Director and Chief Scientist at Digital Twin Institute. His life's work is dedicated to moving from the physical to the digital world, and he has returned to the podcast to share insights on exactly why and how the usage and effectiveness of the digital twin has exploded so dramatically over the past few years. On today's podcast, you will learn: Defining the Digital Twin There are over 400,000 definitions of the digital twin, and which one you're accessing will determine what it means to you. There are three key types of digital twin instances that provide instances of how a product is going to perform- the prototypical digital twin, digital twin instance, and the digital twin aggregate. Products that are created virtually can be designed to perform exactly the way the user expects. Industry 4.0 aims to decrease the time between having a problem and being able to remediate it, and the digital twin can help with this. Overcoming roadblocks to effectively using the digital twin Overhyping the digital twin is not helping the cause. It needs to be driven by use cases. Digital natives are very comfortable with the digital twin, more often it's senior management that is the holdup. An inability to articulate the value of the digital twin hinders adoption. The digital twin has to effectively and clearly show its value. Characteristics of the intelligent digital twin The intelligent digital twin is intended not to replace but to help humans. The intelligent digital twin is passive- it collects the data but the humans are responsible for its application. AI is simply predictive and will have a front-running simulation. The application of computers has transformed so drastically over the years, the digital twin is more essential now than ever before.

Anger is one of the most complex, demanding, and difficult emotions we deal with on a regular basis, in part because it has both many costs and many uses. It burdens our bodies, relationships, and the world around us. And at the same time, there is a vital energy associated with anger that is extremely powerful and, when harnessed effectively, quite useful.On this episode of Being Well, Dr. Rick and Forrest Hanson explore the varied ways anger surfaces, how we can relate to it, and how in recognizing what it has to tell us we can channel its energy towards good ends.Watch the Episode: Prefer watching video?

00:00:04,740 --> 00:00:06,280 Hi and welcome back. 2 00:00:06,290 --> 00:00:08,130 This is Dr Theresa Regan, 3 00:00:08,140 --> 00:00:10,070 a neuropsychologist, 4 00:00:10,080 --> 00:00:13,210 mother of a teen on the spectrum author, 5 00:00:13,210 --> 00:00:17,250 speaker and your podcast host for autism in the adult. 6 00:00:17,740 --> 00:00:27,800 You are joining us for the 3rd episode in a four part series on variations in the characteristics of autism across the lifespan. 7 00:00:29,140 --> 00:00:46,260 Our first episode focused on just foundational knowledge about neurology and why we can expect neurologic characteristics to feel and be expressed with some variation across time and also across context. 8 00:00:47,640 --> 00:00:56,760 The second episode focused on adolescents as a season of the lifespan during which some of these variations can become really noticeable. 9 00:00:57,440 --> 00:00:59,470 There's chemical changes going on, 10 00:00:59,470 --> 00:01:00,730 physical development. 11 00:01:00,740 --> 00:01:09,260 A lot of increase in independence is requested of the person and also just the demands of social interaction, 12 00:01:09,270 --> 00:01:11,010 academic demands, 13 00:01:11,020 --> 00:01:15,560 all these things converging to sometimes make that perfect storm. 14 00:01:17,140 --> 00:01:32,790 This third episode is going to focus on women because there are really some pretty market hormone shifts that females experience across their lifespan and these can be accompanied by shifts in the experience of autism. 15 00:01:32,800 --> 00:01:37,000 So we want to focus specifically on that topic today. 16 00:01:37,000 --> 00:01:38,450 For the episode, 17 00:01:40,740 --> 00:01:49,760 we're going to review issues related to a woman's monthly cycle to pregnancy and post pregnancy issues and also to menopause. 18 00:01:50,940 --> 00:02:04,160 I'm going to include links to some articles in the show notes for those who want to read more and I'll let you know that many of the articles really focus on solely identifying that this area needs more study. 19 00:02:04,170 --> 00:02:08,570 So you may start to read thinking that it's going to tell you something. 20 00:02:08,570 --> 00:02:10,420 We don't know when really, 21 00:02:10,420 --> 00:02:11,260 it's just saying, 22 00:02:11,260 --> 00:02:11,580 gosh, 23 00:02:11,580 --> 00:02:13,110 there's not much out there. 24 00:02:13,120 --> 00:02:27,920 We really should be looking at this more in particular and then other studies focus on gathering comments and taking surveys of women on the spectrum and really listening to the experiences of autistic women, 25 00:02:27,930 --> 00:02:30,830 which I think is really informative and helpful. 26 00:02:30,830 --> 00:02:37,310 So we are going to kind of focus on that side of things for the majority of this episode. 27 00:02:39,540 --> 00:02:42,960 So we focused on adolescents in the second episode. 28 00:02:43,340 --> 00:02:52,270 But here we're going to focus specifically on the seasons and a female's lifespan beyond adolescence. 29 00:02:52,270 --> 00:02:57,050 So we are going to start with the topic of monthly cycles in particular. 30 00:02:57,740 --> 00:02:59,850 So these begin during adolescence, 31 00:02:59,850 --> 00:03:06,690 but they continue across much of the female's lifespan and they can impact individuals differently. 32 00:03:06,700 --> 00:03:07,280 So, 33 00:03:07,280 --> 00:03:09,560 across all human females, 34 00:03:09,560 --> 00:03:18,830 there is a lot of variation on how that cycle impacts them how much um consistency they experience in that area, 35 00:03:18,840 --> 00:03:22,500 what kinds of changes in their physical state, 36 00:03:22,500 --> 00:03:24,950 their emotional state they might experience. 37 00:03:25,830 --> 00:03:28,860 And this is really true for the autistic female as well. 38 00:03:29,540 --> 00:03:45,260 One overall theme in the comments of women who are on the spectrum is that many of the issues that can be a challenge for them on a day to day basis can really feel like more of a challenge just before and also during their cycle. 39 00:03:45,940 --> 00:03:50,240 Many of the characteristics specifically mentioned by women on the spectrum. 40 00:03:50,240 --> 00:03:56,260 Focus around sensory sensitivities emotional regulation. 41 00:03:56,570 --> 00:04:02,550 So that ability to feel calm and centered social communication. 42 00:04:02,940 --> 00:04:05,760 So figuring out what am I feeling, 43 00:04:06,240 --> 00:04:08,230 Finding words to express, 44 00:04:08,230 --> 00:04:17,450 that communicating with others in a social exchange and also feeling flexible in everyday situations. 45 00:04:17,460 --> 00:04:18,430 So, 46 00:04:18,440 --> 00:04:33,460 um I really prefer routine and now this unexpected barrier has happened and I also happened to be in that time of my cycle where dealing with these unexpected things feel so much harder. 47 00:04:34,640 --> 00:04:45,460 One woman said it can become much more overwhelming and harder to maintain control of the things that already take a lot of effort for us to keep on top of during our period. 48 00:04:46,740 --> 00:04:52,460 One woman said I have more meltdowns and worse meltdowns just before my period. 49 00:04:52,840 --> 00:05:02,970 And she also noted that understanding that this is what happens in her life makes those episodes in those periods of time more manageable. 50 00:05:02,970 --> 00:05:04,130 So they don't feel, 51 00:05:04,140 --> 00:05:09,650 she doesn't feel quite so thrown off now that she understands what to expect, 52 00:05:10,040 --> 00:05:11,660 although it is challenging. 53 00:05:12,940 --> 00:05:20,260 Some women on the spectrum reported that self injury behavior was more common before periods as well. 54 00:05:20,640 --> 00:05:28,970 Uh for some women's self injury includes um cutting or biting themselves, 55 00:05:28,980 --> 00:05:30,740 hitting their head on something, 56 00:05:30,740 --> 00:05:31,860 hitting their body. 57 00:05:32,440 --> 00:05:36,360 And there was a 2008 study which, 58 00:05:36,370 --> 00:05:36,870 you know, 59 00:05:36,870 --> 00:05:43,150 that's been a while ago and it used some diagnostic criteria that are out of date. 60 00:05:43,540 --> 00:05:47,700 And there weren't a lot of follow up studies in this regard, 61 00:05:47,700 --> 00:05:49,650 but I will link it in the show notes, 62 00:05:49,910 --> 00:06:08,350 but they found that if they looked at women who experienced Um greater than or equal to 30 difficulty with emotions and other things just prior to their periods and during their periods, 63 00:06:08,740 --> 00:06:24,950 that the prevalence of this significant shift And their ability to stay centered was 92% in the autism group and 11% in the control group, 64 00:06:25,340 --> 00:06:28,110 meaning that in their study again, 65 00:06:28,110 --> 00:06:31,090 this has not been replicated that I can see, 66 00:06:31,090 --> 00:06:38,090 but it does really um hold true as far as what we typically see in women, 67 00:06:38,090 --> 00:06:44,260 that this significantly more difficult experience of emotions. 68 00:06:44,540 --> 00:06:52,700 Um that's really much higher in the autism female group than in the neuro typical group who are experiencing monthly shifts. 69 00:06:55,240 --> 00:07:05,650 The hormone shift themselves can really heighten sensory experiences and they can make emotions more intense or even just come out easier. 70 00:07:05,650 --> 00:07:10,580 Like um I might be able to think or feel something inside typically, 71 00:07:10,580 --> 00:07:13,230 but now during this period of my cycle, 72 00:07:13,230 --> 00:07:32,860 it just really easily comes out and I feel like I don't have as much control over that gate of what I let out and what I keep in another layer seems to be that monthly cycles really increase the amount of sensory experiences and also often involve pain or discomfort. 73 00:07:33,340 --> 00:07:40,200 So the women on the spectrum is processing quite a bit more experience and discomfort than typical. 74 00:07:40,210 --> 00:07:47,630 So it's not only that hormones make the common things more disruptive, 75 00:07:47,640 --> 00:07:52,450 but also you're experiencing even more sensation than typical. 76 00:07:53,140 --> 00:07:59,120 This can increase the difficulty that women have during their periods with focusing, 77 00:07:59,130 --> 00:08:00,640 communicating, 78 00:08:00,650 --> 00:08:03,360 staying centered in their experiences. 79 00:08:03,740 --> 00:08:06,860 And one female on the spectrum said, 80 00:08:06,860 --> 00:08:07,330 you know, 81 00:08:07,340 --> 00:08:12,330 there's so much more coming at me and life is intense enough as it is, 82 00:08:12,330 --> 00:08:20,360 but every month I go through this time of even more intensity and that's really challenging for me to sort through. 83 00:08:21,540 --> 00:08:35,090 In addition to descriptions of the shifts and experience a subgroup of autistic females also expressed that they really wish they had more preparation for what the experience would be like. 84 00:08:35,100 --> 00:08:39,630 So for many on the spectrum who love routine or repetition, 85 00:08:39,630 --> 00:08:41,200 preparation detail, 86 00:08:41,200 --> 00:08:43,260 knowing what's going to happen ahead of time, 87 00:08:44,140 --> 00:08:44,580 you know, 88 00:08:44,580 --> 00:08:52,260 having as much information as possible related to monthly cycles would have felt more grounding to them. 89 00:08:52,640 --> 00:08:52,850 Mhm. 90 00:08:54,040 --> 00:09:00,170 The information they wanted more of included practical things like where do I get these supplies? 91 00:09:00,170 --> 00:09:03,280 What kinds of things do I need to buy also? 92 00:09:03,280 --> 00:09:06,150 How long is this expected to last every month? 93 00:09:06,640 --> 00:09:12,460 How to communicate their needs if they're at school and they need to leave to go to the restroom, 94 00:09:12,940 --> 00:09:13,360 you know, 95 00:09:13,360 --> 00:09:19,750 having some preparation as to what kinds of things they could do in different situations. 96 00:09:20,340 --> 00:09:20,550 Mhm. 97 00:09:21,240 --> 00:09:30,000 They also said that they wished they had understood that women experience variation um across time and also between women, 98 00:09:30,010 --> 00:09:37,150 you know that their best friend may have quite a different experience than they do and that's common. 99 00:09:38,040 --> 00:09:48,520 Um So their experience is likely to be somewhat different than their peers experience and that doesn't mean that something is wrong or that they need to feel anxious about that. 100 00:09:48,530 --> 00:10:03,050 The important thing is for them to notice what is typical for them and to communicate with family or doctors if they're typical experience shifts or it's disrupted steps in some way or changes. 101 00:10:04,440 --> 00:10:09,440 They also voiced that they wish they had understood that pain and discomfort was really normal. 102 00:10:09,450 --> 00:10:14,780 Sometimes they felt like it meant something that was really dangerous to them. 103 00:10:14,790 --> 00:10:19,200 Like maybe this was not supposed to be true, 104 00:10:19,200 --> 00:10:21,260 Maybe it meant that something was wrong, 105 00:10:21,260 --> 00:10:22,260 that they were dying, 106 00:10:22,260 --> 00:10:28,980 that they had a medical problem and also that emotional intensity and shifts were very common. 107 00:10:28,990 --> 00:10:32,490 So sometimes they had the basic physical information, 108 00:10:32,500 --> 00:10:40,260 but they really didn't understand that they can expect emotions to feel different during this period of time. 109 00:10:42,240 --> 00:10:55,560 Some individuals on the spectrum really struggle with health anxiety anyway and may quickly feel nervous if they think that they might be sick or if they don't know what to expect in their physical experience. 110 00:10:56,440 --> 00:11:02,360 Other women said it was quite a struggle because there was variation for a month to month. 111 00:11:02,360 --> 00:11:06,440 And so they didn't really know exactly what day they're cycle would start, 112 00:11:06,450 --> 00:11:07,860 how it would feel, 113 00:11:07,860 --> 00:11:09,190 how long it would last. 114 00:11:09,200 --> 00:11:13,360 And even though they had a sense of their typical rhythm, 115 00:11:13,740 --> 00:11:14,750 there's always, 116 00:11:14,760 --> 00:11:15,070 you know, 117 00:11:15,070 --> 00:11:18,620 some variation is this going to start today or tomorrow, 118 00:11:18,630 --> 00:11:20,690 How heavy is it going to be? 119 00:11:20,700 --> 00:11:28,230 Uh and so that may not feel like a big variation to neuro typical females, 120 00:11:28,230 --> 00:11:34,640 but for the autistic female that relies on repetition and detail and knowing what's going to happen. 121 00:11:34,650 --> 00:11:35,280 You know, 122 00:11:35,280 --> 00:11:43,960 sometimes that anxiety about when is this going to happen and what's it going to be like can be kind of a real struggle. 123 00:11:45,640 --> 00:11:50,460 The next season we'll touch on is the season of pregnancy and post pregnancy. 124 00:11:50,840 --> 00:11:52,900 And this could include breastfeeding. 125 00:11:53,540 --> 00:11:55,960 For women who experience this season, 126 00:11:55,970 --> 00:12:08,260 there are many significant hormone changes of course and a lot of physical changes and some women really struggle with feeling like this isn't my body anymore. 127 00:12:08,540 --> 00:12:11,550 And I have all this increased discomfort, 128 00:12:11,560 --> 00:12:13,110 I have sleep problems, 129 00:12:13,110 --> 00:12:13,980 fatigue, 130 00:12:13,980 --> 00:12:15,350 I'm nauseated, 131 00:12:15,350 --> 00:12:17,560 my appetite is different. 132 00:12:17,560 --> 00:12:21,950 I don't fit in my favorite comfortable clothes anymore. 133 00:12:22,340 --> 00:12:27,860 And so having so much different about their own physical experience. 134 00:12:28,240 --> 00:12:32,460 In addition to all the shifting hormones can really be impactful. 135 00:12:33,940 --> 00:12:38,350 Many neuro typical women experience sensory symptoms when they're pregnant. 136 00:12:38,740 --> 00:12:43,260 So a lot of times that involves increased smell sensitivity, 137 00:12:43,270 --> 00:12:52,450 like I cannot stand the smell of food or cologne or the pets have such a strong scent to them now. 138 00:12:53,240 --> 00:13:03,060 And sometimes that's most noticeable in the early months of pregnancy and then just kind of peters out for the neuro typical female, 139 00:13:03,440 --> 00:13:07,420 but for the autistic female who has sensory characteristics. 140 00:13:07,430 --> 00:13:07,960 Anyway, 141 00:13:07,960 --> 00:13:21,200 this can really be a time of heightened difficulty with a variety of census rather than just smell Some women report needing more deep pressure during pregnancy. 142 00:13:21,210 --> 00:13:21,850 Um, 143 00:13:21,850 --> 00:13:31,730 we've talked about deep pressure and other episodes that this is something that can be calming and grounding and centering for the person on the spectrum. 144 00:13:31,730 --> 00:13:40,430 And that is why some will use weighted blankets and other methods to get really some deep pressure that's calming. 145 00:13:40,450 --> 00:13:44,280 And so the women who report this feel like during their pregnancy, 146 00:13:44,280 --> 00:13:48,850 they noticed they needed more in order to feel calm and centered. 147 00:13:51,440 --> 00:13:54,820 Some talked about using things like massage. 148 00:13:54,830 --> 00:14:00,000 Other women talked about wrapping things around like their fingers, 149 00:14:00,000 --> 00:14:00,820 for example, 150 00:14:00,820 --> 00:14:02,180 or their hands. 151 00:14:02,230 --> 00:14:05,010 Some would have their pets lay on top of them. 152 00:14:05,020 --> 00:14:19,290 So whatever way they could get some extra pressure really helped them feel more grounded and calm nausea and sensitivity to food textures and sent maybe heightened. 153 00:14:19,300 --> 00:14:26,280 And many of the individuals on the spectrum already have some repetition and how they eat. 154 00:14:26,290 --> 00:14:30,690 So they may go on what I call food jags where, 155 00:14:30,700 --> 00:14:31,380 oh, 156 00:14:31,380 --> 00:14:37,550 I'm so into yogurt and salami and they'll eat that for a couple of months and then switch. 157 00:14:37,840 --> 00:14:39,740 And that's without pregnancy. 158 00:14:39,740 --> 00:14:43,610 And so when you add the pregnancy and there can be cravings, 159 00:14:43,620 --> 00:14:48,160 there can be nausea texture sensitivities that are even more significant. 160 00:14:48,640 --> 00:14:55,530 Sometimes you'll get this reliance on a few foods for nutrition and that's not necessarily a problem, 161 00:14:55,530 --> 00:15:03,060 but it may be something that they want to monitor and make sure they're getting enough nutrition during their pregnancy, 162 00:15:03,940 --> 00:15:06,960 emotions can be extra challenging to manage. 163 00:15:07,340 --> 00:15:10,550 Similar to what we discussed about monthly cycles. 164 00:15:11,150 --> 00:15:16,350 The impact of hormone changes on emotions during pregnancy may be really noticeable. 165 00:15:16,740 --> 00:15:23,060 And many individuals on the spectrum also experience sleep disturbance at the best of times. 166 00:15:23,540 --> 00:15:29,360 And the extra physical changes during pregnancy can increase problems resting and sleeping. 167 00:15:30,240 --> 00:15:35,890 So this decreased sleep may reduce resilience even more for things like staying centered, 168 00:15:35,900 --> 00:15:36,960 staying calm, 169 00:15:36,960 --> 00:15:38,080 paying attention, 170 00:15:38,090 --> 00:15:43,150 handling unexpected changes and socially communicating. 171 00:15:43,480 --> 00:15:45,010 This is what I'm experiencing. 172 00:15:45,010 --> 00:15:46,250 This is what I need, 173 00:15:46,640 --> 00:15:51,510 what do you need And also similar to monthly cycles, 174 00:15:51,510 --> 00:16:00,000 having to process so much more sensation for such a long period of time can also be noticeable to the autistic woman. 175 00:16:00,440 --> 00:16:11,380 So once the baby is born there are hormonal shifts again and this can be impacted by whether or not the mother chooses to breastfeed or use formula. 176 00:16:11,560 --> 00:16:35,860 And so awareness of how hormone shifts can impact this experience and the expression of autistic characteristics that can help the mother and her partner and her friends and her family at least have this context for what she is experiencing and then they can think um kind of intentionally about what she needs and how to be supportive. 177 00:16:36,240 --> 00:16:37,980 So they can think about Heywood, 178 00:16:37,980 --> 00:16:39,150 deep pressure help. 179 00:16:39,740 --> 00:16:54,210 Um and thinking in that way may really help this season go more smoothly so that she feels more resilient as we talked about in the previous episodes, 180 00:16:54,210 --> 00:17:03,670 Physical changes are often occurring at the same time of life that a lot of just life complexities land on our doorstep. 181 00:17:03,680 --> 00:17:05,590 And when we talk about pregnancy, 182 00:17:05,600 --> 00:17:09,360 we're of course talking about all the life changes that go with it, 183 00:17:09,640 --> 00:17:12,300 so changes in the physical environment, 184 00:17:12,300 --> 00:17:13,010 for example, 185 00:17:13,010 --> 00:17:13,890 of the house, 186 00:17:14,240 --> 00:17:16,610 there's extra furniture in your space, 187 00:17:16,610 --> 00:17:18,630 people are moving things around, 188 00:17:18,830 --> 00:17:23,060 you might have to get rid of things that actually you feel kind of attached to. 189 00:17:23,540 --> 00:17:28,910 Uh and sometimes we just have to get used to having more clutter around and this, 190 00:17:29,340 --> 00:17:29,560 you know, 191 00:17:29,560 --> 00:17:35,270 maybe stressful for the person that likes their physical environment to be a certain way. 192 00:17:36,940 --> 00:17:43,140 Some autistics really depend on their physical environment to help them feel grounded and calm. 193 00:17:43,150 --> 00:17:46,670 Um there's a subset of people on the spectrum, 194 00:17:46,670 --> 00:17:47,410 for example, 195 00:17:47,410 --> 00:17:51,270 that really love a visually simple space. 196 00:17:51,730 --> 00:17:57,670 Other people really love to have objects in certain places or facing a certain way. 197 00:17:58,040 --> 00:18:05,450 So having a shift in the environment can impact this sense of grounded Nous. 198 00:18:08,440 --> 00:18:27,790 Women may report feeling like they have less control over the environment and therefore they may need to rely more on other strategies to find that peaceful place in their own spirit preparing for baby often involves more social contact. 199 00:18:27,800 --> 00:18:35,890 And so people may come up to her and want to touch her or talk to her about their own birth experiences. 200 00:18:35,900 --> 00:18:39,010 They might ask questions about her pregnancy. 201 00:18:39,020 --> 00:18:54,380 So there can be less personal space in a social context and this can feel demanding and draining to the autistic woman who's already really managing a lot of physical and environmental changes. 202 00:18:55,040 --> 00:19:00,460 So this woman may want to decide ahead of time how much social context she wants, 203 00:19:01,040 --> 00:19:03,070 Does she want a baby shower? 204 00:19:03,080 --> 00:19:07,670 Does she want family to visit and stay over when the baby's born? 205 00:19:09,040 --> 00:19:29,000 She may want to practice comments that she can make when strangers want to ask her about the pregnancy in order to just kind of create a safe space for herself without feeling like people are kind of coming into her space more often than she can really handle and and balance. 206 00:19:31,840 --> 00:19:42,240 Some women on the spectrum realize that they have really high standards for themselves and they don't want to take risks or fail or make mistakes. 207 00:19:42,460 --> 00:19:47,440 Inattention to detail may be very important to them and getting this right. 208 00:19:47,450 --> 00:19:48,730 And in that sense, 209 00:19:48,730 --> 00:20:01,770 pregnancy and childbirth and parenting may feel really daunting because it's really difficult to get through that process without realizing that you don't have as much control as you wish you did. 210 00:20:01,780 --> 00:20:05,390 And it feels like a big risk in some ways, 211 00:20:05,400 --> 00:20:08,030 like I can influence the situation, 212 00:20:08,030 --> 00:20:11,170 but I don't have all the answers and nobody else does either. 213 00:20:11,440 --> 00:20:14,400 And that can kind of increase anxiety. 214 00:20:14,840 --> 00:20:21,100 And so having this self awareness if this is your um kind of rhythm, 215 00:20:21,100 --> 00:20:28,860 your internal rhythm that you try to stay on top of so many details and facts so you can get everything right. 216 00:20:29,440 --> 00:20:41,760 Um you may need to process how can you manage that during this really complex life change of pregnancy and becoming apparent. 217 00:20:43,240 --> 00:20:48,970 Some described feeling guilty when there were problems during their pregnancy. 218 00:20:48,980 --> 00:20:57,960 So if they went to the doctor in their blood pressure was high or their sugars were high or there was something that the doctor wanted to monitor more. 219 00:20:58,840 --> 00:21:03,720 They kind of felt like they had failed their doctor's appointment and you know, 220 00:21:03,730 --> 00:21:19,270 having this awareness of what the struggle is about and how to process that can really help um adjust to not having all the answers and not being able to get everything right and avoid risk. 221 00:21:19,740 --> 00:21:31,310 Many women describe to that pregnancy birth plans and breastfeeding and also parenting issues became their special interest and this isn't necessarily a bad thing at all. 222 00:21:31,310 --> 00:21:33,060 They become very informed, 223 00:21:33,440 --> 00:21:41,260 they have strong opinions and things they would like to choose in their parenting um in a really intentional way, 224 00:21:41,270 --> 00:21:58,050 but some also say they wish they had been more aware that this is what was happening so that when they hit obstacles or rough spots and they felt out of control um they could also focus on balance. 225 00:21:58,440 --> 00:22:01,320 Like I have some other interests. 226 00:22:01,330 --> 00:22:05,280 I have um ways of restoring myself, 227 00:22:05,280 --> 00:22:10,780 I have ways of grounding myself and this is a special interest that's okay, 228 00:22:10,780 --> 00:22:17,580 but I also want to seek balance and um and what I'm doing so that when these difficult, 229 00:22:17,580 --> 00:22:19,050 unexpected things happen, 230 00:22:19,050 --> 00:22:21,360 I can still hold the course and be okay. 231 00:22:23,740 --> 00:22:28,260 Also the increased chaos in the home after baby is born, 232 00:22:28,270 --> 00:22:30,190 that really needs no explanation. 233 00:22:30,190 --> 00:22:33,670 There are so many more demands on the parent. 234 00:22:33,680 --> 00:22:35,790 They have less rest time, 235 00:22:35,810 --> 00:22:38,240 there's a lot more sensory input. 236 00:22:38,250 --> 00:22:46,090 So really close attention to having strategies ahead of time and as you go along, 237 00:22:46,090 --> 00:22:51,170 adjusting strategies so that you know what you need, 238 00:22:51,930 --> 00:23:11,820 whether that's pressure or quiet time or um rest breaks and all of these things to really do this marathon of mothering rather than trying to sprint through doing everything perfectly all the time again, 239 00:23:11,820 --> 00:23:38,770 this is really a common experience for any woman who's gone through that season and it just maybe more so for the autistic female that they really want to figure out how to add balance and restorative kinds of activities in their life as we move on to menopause. 240 00:23:39,140 --> 00:23:40,020 Um, 241 00:23:40,280 --> 00:23:41,210 this again, 242 00:23:41,220 --> 00:23:50,020 is a season of a lot of hormonal shifting and some women report that they really did well, 243 00:23:50,020 --> 00:23:52,880 understanding their autistic characteristics, 244 00:23:52,890 --> 00:23:58,360 using their strengths to get ahead at work to get promoted to accomplish life goals. 245 00:23:58,840 --> 00:24:05,270 And they found compatible partners and they really got into this nice groove with um, 246 00:24:05,270 --> 00:24:15,660 a life that fit them and it fit their nervous system and all of a sudden menopause happens and there just was a lot of shift that they didn't expect. 247 00:24:16,040 --> 00:24:22,020 Um one woman described that she felt that her autism broke during menopause, 248 00:24:22,020 --> 00:24:23,790 that it kind of broke through, 249 00:24:23,800 --> 00:24:29,860 whereas she didn't really have to think about it a lot during other Seasons of Life, 250 00:24:31,040 --> 00:24:34,420 A quote from a woman in menopause said during menopause, 251 00:24:34,420 --> 00:24:42,070 I was on three meltdowns a week at times and my meltdowns were of the nature that people would call a basket case, 252 00:24:42,640 --> 00:24:46,660 I'd strip down to my underwear sometimes during a meltdown at work, 253 00:24:47,440 --> 00:24:50,750 so that feeling that my body, 254 00:24:50,750 --> 00:24:51,820 my nervous system, 255 00:24:51,820 --> 00:24:57,730 my my whole system is so overwhelmed that I need to just strip down. 256 00:24:57,730 --> 00:25:00,780 So I'm not getting so much sensory input, 257 00:25:00,780 --> 00:25:10,050 I'm not getting input that feels like it just takes me over the edge of feeling upset. 258 00:25:10,060 --> 00:25:17,770 Um and so I love these quotes because I feel like it really helps us here, 259 00:25:17,770 --> 00:25:19,370 the humanity of that, 260 00:25:19,380 --> 00:25:33,450 and we can probably all relate in certain areas or certain times of our life where we have felt um just overwhelmed by change or by things that hit us harder than we thought. 261 00:25:33,940 --> 00:25:35,360 Um So here again, 262 00:25:35,360 --> 00:25:40,020 we're talking about similarities with the report of many women during menopause, 263 00:25:40,020 --> 00:25:50,670 but it's really crossed with these common autistic characteristics that I feel more anxiety that I feel more sensory difficulty that I have more meltdowns. 264 00:25:50,940 --> 00:25:55,290 An autistic woman may feel that her attention to detail in getting things right, 265 00:25:55,290 --> 00:25:58,050 worked for her and so many aspects of life, 266 00:25:58,440 --> 00:25:59,820 but that during menopause, 267 00:25:59,820 --> 00:26:04,400 her hormone shifts have really led to this increased anxiety. 268 00:26:04,410 --> 00:26:08,060 This feeling of being overwhelmed by the demands of the environment. 269 00:26:09,440 --> 00:26:16,500 And she may feel like she's now getting stuck on detail rather than using that as a real gift. 270 00:26:16,500 --> 00:26:19,280 That helps her move forward with projects. 271 00:26:19,280 --> 00:26:25,850 So getting stuck to the point that it really makes it hard to move on with things to make decisions to feel calm. 272 00:26:26,640 --> 00:26:30,700 Women also report that changes in their physical form again, 273 00:26:30,700 --> 00:26:43,070 that our body really changes without our permission and there are weight changes and wrinkles and sometimes the ways that we use to exercise or have fun and do our leisure time. 274 00:26:43,070 --> 00:26:46,900 Sometimes we just can't physically engage in the same things. 275 00:26:47,340 --> 00:26:54,650 Sleep disturbance is common in menopause and of course for the autistic who already had sleep disturbance. 276 00:26:54,650 --> 00:26:56,760 That can be really challenging. 277 00:26:57,220 --> 00:27:10,350 And the emotional symptoms can all impact how this season feels the physical and hormonal changes impact many aspects of the autistic experience itself. 278 00:27:10,740 --> 00:27:14,380 And similar to other portions of our episodes, 279 00:27:14,380 --> 00:27:18,720 we need to look also at the life season changes as well. 280 00:27:18,720 --> 00:27:20,780 So life complexity, 281 00:27:20,790 --> 00:27:22,670 environmental changes. 282 00:27:23,510 --> 00:27:26,490 Some women are facing the need to downsize, 283 00:27:26,490 --> 00:27:27,560 for example, 284 00:27:27,590 --> 00:27:29,140 during menopause, 285 00:27:29,140 --> 00:27:31,060 maybe they're empty nesters, 286 00:27:31,440 --> 00:27:34,670 maybe they've gone through the loss of a partner, 287 00:27:34,670 --> 00:27:47,300 a divorce or the death of a spouse and they may be thinking about getting rid of their um possessions enough that they're downsizing into a new space. 288 00:27:47,310 --> 00:27:49,500 How will this new space feel? 289 00:27:49,500 --> 00:27:50,960 That can be really hard. 290 00:27:51,640 --> 00:28:00,380 Some women on the spectrum are going to be very attached to things in the environment in a way that feels stronger than a neuro typical may feel. 291 00:28:00,410 --> 00:28:05,260 And doing all this in the midst of physical changes can be really difficult. 292 00:28:06,640 --> 00:28:15,460 They may also be caring for ill or aging parents or have experienced loss in other aspects of their life. 293 00:28:16,340 --> 00:28:17,420 So as we said, 294 00:28:17,420 --> 00:28:31,160 these physical changes that occur in menopause also coincide with shifts and life experience and all of these things together can lead to some pretty big changes and how autism is experienced and expressed, 295 00:28:31,740 --> 00:28:38,040 A woman may feel like she needs to figure out how her system works again from the beginning. 296 00:28:38,050 --> 00:28:40,780 Like I used to have this figured out, 297 00:28:40,790 --> 00:28:43,800 I had come to understand myself and what I need, 298 00:28:43,800 --> 00:28:48,450 but now things have changed and I really have to figure this out again. 299 00:28:50,940 --> 00:28:51,550 Finally, 300 00:28:51,550 --> 00:28:55,850 it is important to recall that these are generalizations. 301 00:28:55,850 --> 00:28:59,810 So I I really want to emphasize that, 302 00:28:59,810 --> 00:29:07,400 I'm not saying that everything falls apart in certain seasons of hormonal shift, 303 00:29:07,410 --> 00:29:09,930 there's so much generalization, 304 00:29:09,940 --> 00:29:22,370 but I think that when the autistic woman goes through a season of life and the things that she thought she understood about herself really seemed to shift, 305 00:29:22,380 --> 00:29:29,520 I think it is helpful to know the context for that that has a context within the nervous system, 306 00:29:29,530 --> 00:29:31,730 within the autistic experience, 307 00:29:31,730 --> 00:29:36,960 within all these life changes and that in itself can be really helpful. 308 00:29:37,540 --> 00:29:38,290 And also, 309 00:29:38,290 --> 00:29:43,070 I think it allows us to be intentional about what do I need now? 310 00:29:43,080 --> 00:29:44,730 I didn't used to need this, 311 00:29:44,730 --> 00:29:45,870 but I need this now. 312 00:29:45,870 --> 00:29:48,500 And so I'm prepared to shift. 313 00:29:48,510 --> 00:29:58,170 I understand that it's not that I figure myself out for a lifetime and I need the same things all the time. 314 00:29:58,540 --> 00:30:04,480 It's that I figure things out for a season and I am prepared to shift when that changes. 315 00:30:05,440 --> 00:30:14,170 I hope this gives a nice overview of some of the physical and life season changes that impact autistic women. 316 00:30:14,840 --> 00:30:17,870 And in our final episode of the series, 317 00:30:17,870 --> 00:30:19,130 coming up next time, 318 00:30:19,130 --> 00:30:23,050 we're going to talk about shifts that have to do with aging. 319 00:30:23,060 --> 00:30:25,430 So we're going to talk about the aging, 320 00:30:25,430 --> 00:30:26,890 brain and body. 321 00:30:26,900 --> 00:30:34,550 We're going to talk about retirement and other aspects of just aging within the context of autism. 322 00:30:34,840 --> 00:30:42,270 I hope you join us for that next episode as we round out this series.
At the beginning of Acts 13 we will see another "first" in the early church. The church at Antioch became the first congregation composed mostly of Gentile Christians. Now as we begin chapter 13, this church will be the first to send out missionaries with the intent of strategically making the gospel known in other lands. And this is not the result of the goodness of the people or the desire of the Church. It was the Holy Spirit's specific command to this church as they worshiped and ministered to the Lord. The Holy Spirit called the church to set apart Barnabas and Saul for the work that He has called them to do. As these men are called, commissioned, sent, and engage in their mission on the island of Cyprus, we see the characteristics of missions and to be witnesses to the ends of the earth. Mission is the call of the local church because souls are at stake - eternity is at stake - and the gospel is the only answer for all of humanity.

Dr. Eric Cole discusses the key characteristics of a world-class CISO in this episode of Life of a CISO. If you want to advance in your career, you have two choices. Option 1 is to make your own mistakes. Option 2 is to find people who have achieved your desired career goals and identify their characteristics, patterns, traits, and habits.

You will discover that implementing this strategy will not only improve your mindset and reach but will improve your results. Watch this episode of Life of a CISO, to identify and implement ways you can excel in your cybersecurity career path.
THE THESIS: The Party wants more violence. It's right there in their message. Satan cannot create, he can only twist. He cannot experience love, only hate. The Party refuses to build, they cannot really love, their power is fueled by hate and avarice. The rhetoric around this election proves this entirely. We cannot fight for Heaven using the tools of Hell. So . . . how do we fight? THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES: Modern politics is about the creation of hatred and envy. These things are not of God. We must be good citizens who seek law and order, structure, good leaders. More so, we must put God in our hearts and minds in His rightful place: at the top! Give God the respect to follow His word and let the politicians to their own hating (let the dead bury the dead). Mark 12:17 17 Then Jesus said to them, “Give back to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's.” And they were amazed at him. Most of us are praying for our Country. But, are you--like I have been doing--praying with a hardened heart? 1 John 4:19-21 19 We love because he first loved us. 20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. 21 And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.

Can I bring something for you to sign? Hahaha Anyway, a song popped into my head. Listening to your ideas about red state firewalls, and how so very many good conservative people (and moderate people who are just not crazy leftists) are moving out of destroyed blue cities and states. Although Bruce Springsteen is a leftist, his song "My Hometown" seems to really hit the themes of being forced to leave somewhere that you've spent most-or all-of your life, because of things changing. In the song, the narrator and his family make the hard decision move south because the local economy has collapsed and there are no jobs left. My understanding is the song is based on Springsteen's real experiences growing up in New Jersey. The song may be about leaving for economic reasons, but it makes me think about leaving somewhere for cultural or social reasons.

"Based upon my own experiences, I have made the following additional observations about unhealthy and abusive church situations. Institutional Pride: The system is never the problem. If something goes good, the system gets credit for it. But if something goes bad, the system is not at fault, but rather some individual gets blamed for it. If anyone identifies problems with the system, that person will be marginalized, put down and discredited. Nobody is good enough to criticize the system. The church may consider itself the best church or perhaps the One True Church, meaning no others are even saved. When pressed about its own shortcomings, the group may reluctantly admit that "no church is perfect" and say it is "changing," but do substantive changes that would improve the health of the group ever take place? Exploitative: The system uses the people, often abusing them with harsh and demanding treatment. People serve the system and its agenda, not God (indeed, the agenda of the church is equated with God's agenda). Though deliberate efforts are made to make the group meetings appear "fired-up" or joyful, on the inside the people feel sad and trapped. Leader-centric. Because leaders are the custodians of the system, they are considered superior and often isolate themselves from the members. Leaders usually lead by control and authority, not by nurturing or humble service. Getting closer to the leaders relationally or in the leadership "pyramid" is a goal and sign of advancement in the system; real spirituality and spiritual growth may not be important objectives at all. Subordinate leaders may be more genuine in their faith and approach, but they can be replaced at any time. Look at the highest levels of leadership to see the true values of the church. Manipulative. The objective of leaders is to advance the system, not to do what is best for individuals. Thus, leadership direction that is given to members is biased towards what is best for the system, not the individual. For example, members may be discouraged from moving simply because the leader loses stature (and maybe even his position or salary) if his membership decreases. Leaders may use a call for "unity" to insist that everyone participate in some event or action, warping the Scriptural idea of unity. Failing to conform will lead to shaming and charges of being "independent," "unteachable" or "not a real disciple." Leaders may draw people close to them with encouragement one minute, then tell them they are terrible the next. This is a control ritual that is designed to make people perform in order to get the praise of the leadership. But alas, the member can never do enough to guarantee that praise; no matter what he does the leader can find something wrong with it if he is so inclined. Dishonest: The system does not communicate straight. Communications are ambiguous or vague, events are "spun" the way the leadership wants to present them. Pertinent information is hidden from members. Straight answers are not given; different people may be told different things. Dishonesty may show up in deceptive recruiting or leaving incorrect but favorable impressions uncorrected. Finances may be kept secret, with misleading financial statements that hide where the money really goes. There might be front organizations and secret doctrines or practices that are not normally revealed to outsiders. Frankly, there is so much dishonesty in unhealthy and abusive churches that people may not even know they are being dishonest. The ability to "spin" things to make the system look better or to get people to conform becomes a second language to members." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/support
Episode 262 is about overcoming our emotions. Leonard Pearlmutter is a spiritual mentor and coach. He is the founder and the director of The American Meditation Institute, which offers programs for people who wish to transform their lives with meditation. He is also the author of several self-help spiritual books such as The Heart and Science of Yoga. There is a new frontier between science and the metaphysical, and Leonard is at the forefront of that. Life doesn't come with a blueprint, that's why Leonard is here to teach us how to become the architect of our lives, identify our fears, examine our pain, AND use this pain of life to teach us. We can always learn from our failures by controlling our emotions. In this episode, Leonard will show us how to manifest our purpose by knowing the dynamics of our emotions. Emotions can serve as a blueprint, provided we know what questions to ask. Like do you really know who you are? When you look at yourself in the mirror, who do you see? Our Men on Purpose community can help you find your true self.

Series: All: All Authority, All Nations, All AllegianceScripture: Matthew 4:1-11 (Main); Hebrews 2:18, 4:15; James 1:13-15; 4:7;Title: How to deal with temptationHeavy credit: David Platt and Douglas Sean O'Donnell (See below for bibliography)Summary of chapter: “The Holy Spirit leads Jesus into the wilderness to be tempted by the Devil.” (Outline Bible)Bottom Line: We handle temptation by following Jesus' examples of preparation and action.Jesus' temptation was…God-ordained but not God-inflicted. Therefore, we trust God's sovereign authority. (Spirit leads)When his flesh was weak. Therefore, we deny ourselves and rest in his power. (Weakness)Unique yet universal. Therefore, we rest in his faithfulness.He resisted with the word of God. Therefore, we believe his word.Tough but temporary testing. Therefore, we embrace the season of testing.Opening:In the Lord of the rings trilogy Frodo Baggins has to deal with the temptation that comes whenever he put on the ring of invisibility or the ring of power. Because with that power he could envision himself doing all kinds of things. That power was corrupting him over time and tempting him to change. It is a reminder of how the enemy tempts us through power.We're all tempted every day via flash, by the world views were surrounded by, and by the enemy himself. Temptation itself is not evil. Being tempted is part of the test. Sin comes when we give into temptation.Last week we said sin has consequences.Two weeks ago we said repentance and faith removes the penalty of sin.This week we'll deal with the enemy, the flesh and the world tempting us to sin.Discussion questions for group and personal study:Note: We encourage you to use our sermons and discussion questions to gather with some friends and talk about the passage together. Pray and ask God to guide you. He is faithful. Questions? Email us at info@GraceToday.netFind our sermons, podcasts, discussion questions and notes at https://www.gracetoday.net/podcastGoal: The goal isn't to ask every question. The goal is to encourage people to engage the scriptures together.Reflect and Discuss1. What images come to mind when you hear about demons and spiritual warfare? Are these thoughts biblical? If not, explain why.2. List some things that distract us from seeing the spiritual battles all around us. What are some specific ways we can battle our ignorance and apathy toward spiritual warfare?3. Which sins are especially prevalent in our culture today?4. Explain how Jesus' triumph through temptation is both our example and the basis for our own victory in temptation. What is the danger if we only see Jesus as our example?5. How would you answer the following question: "If Jesus was fully God, then how can His victory over temptation help a weak and sinful person like me?"6. Of Satan's three temptations in this passage, which one do you struggle with the most? What promise from Scripture might help you battle that temptation?7. Explain the following statement: Jesus triumphed where Adam and Israel failed.8. What attributes of God strengthen you during temptation?9. How do Satan's temptations seek to undermine the purpose of the cross?10. How does the promise of eternal life and the believer's future reign with Christ affect your everyday battle with sin?Scripture:“Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'” Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “ ‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'” Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'” Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'” Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.”Matthew 4:1-11 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/mat.4.1-11.NIVOpening:We all struggle with temptations. (Examples in my life??)God helps us when we are being tempted (Hebrews 2:18)God sympathizes with our weaknesses (Hebrews 4:15)So we're looking at Jesus'IdentityExampleOutline:5 Characteristics of Jesus' temptations so we can become resistors of temptationJesus' temptations were…I. God-ordained but not God-inflicted. Therefore, we trust his sovereign authority.A. Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness (God-ordained) to be tempted/tested by the devil (not God-inflicted).B. Jesus is bothTested: Is he really the true Son of God? Will he hold fast to God's plan of salvation?Tempted: To exalt himselfTo avoid the pain and suffering of the crossTo bow to Satan's ruleC. Lesson: “If you want to follow Jesus, know that the road to Heaven is not paved with gold and lined with daisies. Jesus who was loved by God was sent into the wilderness to be tested. If you are his follower, you can expect the same.” —DSO“Perhaps you have heard the story of a congressman from Tennessee who, after serving his first term in Washington, was seeking reelection. He returned to his home state of Tennessee to seek support for reelection, and in those efforts he went to the home of a wealthy farmer who had been a key supporter in his first election. The congressman said to the farmer, “I'm running for a second term. Will you support me again?” The farmer shook his head no and said, “No, I'm sorry, Mr. Crockett. I'm not going to support you again.” He continued, “Do you remember what happened last year when there was a fire in Washington that displaced people from their home? You voted to give the displaced people the money they needed to build a new house. You didn't take that money from your own pocket, but you voted to take it from mine.” In other words, the money distributed by the congressman had not been his to give.”Excerpt From Matthew - An Expositional Commentary, R.C. SproulII. When his flesh was weak. Therefore, we deny ourselves and rest in his power.A. Wilderness/desert, no shelter, hostile nature, extreme weather, no creature comforts.B. Solitude - alone, no companionship.C. No food.D. “We should be prepared to fight when we are most weak.” —DSOOr think about Adam and Eve. Read what James Montgomery Boice says about them in contrast to Jesus:“Adam and Eve were in paradise; Jesus was in the vast, desolate wilderness of Judah. Adam and Eve were physically content and satisfied. They werefree to eat from any of the trees of the garden, save the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; Jesus was hungry, having fasted for forty days and forty nights. Adam and Eve were together. They had each other for company and mutual support; Jesus was alone. Yet Adam and Eve rapidly succumbed to Satan's wiles, carrying the entire human race into sin, misery, destruction, and both physical and spiritual death, while Jesus stood firm as the Savior who was to bring life and salvation to the race.What Adam didn't do, Jesus did. P. 85III. Unique yet universal. Therefore, we rest in his faithfulness.A. Unique temptation—because he is uniqueRemember who he is: (Matt 3:17; Psalm 2; Isaiah 42) Son of God Suffering ServantOf course, this is why Satan's point of attack centers on Questioning his identity, andChallenging him to take the crown without the cross.B. Universal temptations—Aren't we all tempted to grab the crown without the cross?To think that the physical > spiritual?Seek out the gospel through gimmicks, entertainment, and worldly means—our own version of turning stones to bread?By the desires of the flesh, the desires of the eyes, and the pride of life. (1 John 2:16)From holy reliance on the Father to an unholy independence?The tempter tempts him to take the shortcut to glory by bypassing Gethsemane and Golgotha. That's what all these temptations are about.Just look at the least obvious—verses 3, 4. Here it's as if Satan says,“Look, Jesus, you're hungry. The whole world is hungry. If you can turn these stones into bread, which I know you can- because you're God's Son!—then feed yourself, and feed the world. Use your power for what people most need and want—their bellies to be filled—and then watch the whole world"run after you like sheep, grateful and obedient." You will have the world literally eating from your hand. Give people what they really want—not the Word of God but food from God.” -Douglas Sean O'Donnell, p. 87IV. Resisted with the word of God. Therefore, we believe in his word.A. While we could go to the sword analogy (Eph 6:17) as the word of God, DSO suggests we go to the shield analogy instead: The shield of faith.B. Because we acknowledge God's word is powerful. But do we really believe it? Do we live by “every word” of God?C. The shield of faith is more defensive by nature. It extinguishes the fiery darts of the enemy.Not darts tempting towards obvious evil but good things that can trip us up as well.Romans 10:17 Faith comes from hearing…D. Questions to considerDo you know the word of God? It's content?Do you know how to interpret it correctly?Do you trust what God has said and written?V. Tough but temporary. (10-11) Therefore, we embrace the season of testing.A. James 4:7B. 1 Cor 10:13 makes it clear, there's no temptation that isNot common to everyone,Not beyond your ability to resist with our Lord's help (Heb 2:18),From which God does not provide a way of escape—if you say “NO!” he will go.C. “Our God only allows Satan to tempt us for our good, to try and test and refine our faith.Conclusion:Satan cannot break jesus because…He rests in his identityHe praysHe fastsHe's following the Holy SpiritHe knows the word of God He knows the futureHe speaks the word aloud in the face of the enemy believing it's powerLet's do this and lead others to do the same!PrayMy Other notes:Resist seems a key action (requires faith)Fasting seems a key strategy or power source (prayer = faith in action)Scripture seems a key weapon (requires faith) (truth)“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”James 4:7 NIVhttps://james.bible/james-4-7“Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”1 Peter 5:9 NIVhttps://1peter.bible/1-peter-5-9Verse 1“Then” - follows his baptism where he's affronted in his character and identity as the Son of God.“led” - Jesus followed, didn't just lead.“By the Spirit” - Holy Spirit/Spit of God is who Jesus followed modeling this perfectly for us.“Into the wilderness” - the most uncomfortable place to be is away from shelter, food, family, and friends. Especially for an extended length of time.“To be tempted” - This is why the Holy Spirit led him there. This is the Spirit testing and preparing Jesus for what is to come.“By the devil” - the Tempter, the Accuser; Father of lies.Verse 2“40” - A significant Bible number—combination of 4, earthly things and 10, divine perfection. A long time to not eat! No wonder he was hungry! Also, the number of years Israel wandered in the desert with Moses being tempted, tested and led by the Spirit of God.Verse 3“the Tempter” - Satan, the devil; what he does.“Came to him” - Has Jesus in his crosshairs.“‘If you are the son of God'” “If” is his way of introducing doubt. Satan knows exactly who Jesus is.“Son of God” - who Jesus Christ is.“Tell these stones to become bread.” Jesus could have done this. He likely was tempted as a man. Yet he did not give in.Verse 4He resisted this temptation by fasting, praying, and recalling scripture and quoting it to Satan.“Answered” - Jesus dialogues with Satan, whom he knows well.“Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” LIfe is spiritual as well as physical. God's word feeds our soul and faith even as food feeds our body. We need both. And God still speaks (through) his word.Verse 5“Took” - Jesus willingly follows Satan to the highest point on the temple; could have been literally or just visually. This would have also been the highest point in Jerusalem overlooking the city and the region.Verse 6“If” - once again, Stan questions/raises doubts to tempt Jesus to doubt his own identity.“Throw yourself down” - i.e. test. Psalm 91:11-12 by jumping so the angels will rescue you. But to what end? To prove to himself he's really Son of God? To prove to Satan? The world?“He will command his angels concerning you…” - The Lord protects his son when he wants to…but not before and on the cross.Verse 7“It is also written” - more scripture to combat temptation.“Don't put the Lord your God to the test.” There's a only one time in scripture where God says test me and this isn't it.Verse 8“Again” - third time“Took him to a very high mountain” - another epic view. This time of the entire world. “Showed him all the kingdoms of the world.” To tempt him to rescue the world without having to go to the cross.Verse 9“All this I will give you…if you will bow down and worship me.” - Because Satan has this authority right now. Price? Allegiance and worship of Satan. This is what Satan ultimately wants.Jesus responds with scripture once again to resist temptation powerfully as his leaning on the same authority that gave Satan temporary authority over the world.“Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.” - Ourallegiance is to the Lrod God alone. Even the Son of God bows to him while in the flesh. He submits to him as well (the cross; incarnation)Verse 10“The devil left him“- Satan cannot break jesus because…He rests in his identityHe praysHe fastsHe's following the Holy SpiritHe knows the word of God He knows the futureHe speaks the word aloud in the face of the enemy believing it's powerVerse 11“Angels came and attended him” - His physical needs are eventually met.Notes from RC Sproul's commentaryTemptations rise from within.“When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.”James 1:13-15 NIVTherefore, God isn't tempting Jesus—Satan is.God led Jesus there knowing that would happen and using it to test him.Adam & Eve failed a similar test but under much different conditions:They were in paradise (Garden of Eden) vs. the wilderness/desert that Jesus was in.They had unlimited food around them vs. Jesus fasting for 40 days and nights.They had each other (plus the Father each night) vs. Jesus being all alone.Yet, same issues is at stake: The serpent came to Adam & Eve with a question: “Has God really said…?”In the wilderness, Satan suggested three times, “If…”The Devil's point of attack is the same in both cases—the trustworthiness of God's word. Adam and Eve did not believe God's word. Jesus did. RCSJesus submitted to baptism in part to identify with his people.Maybe a bigger miracle is Jesus' sinless life. If he's not sinless, then he's not an acceptable sacrifice. No cross, no salvation. So all that is on the line here in the wilderness.Could Jesus have sinned?Divinely speaking, no.Humanly speaking, yes. But he didn't. As a man, Jesus had the ability to sin, or he'd not have been truly human nor truly tempted. It would have all been a scam.Satan used a simple desire to satisfy a legitimate need to tempt Jesus.Satan plants the suggestion that if Jesus really was the son of God, he'd not have to endure suffering but use divine authority to eat.“It is written” is Jewish shorthand for the words of God or scripture.Life requires more than physical food. We need bread plus spiritual food.What else? “Every word” not just some words of God.“Jesus' meat and drink was to do the will of the Father. He had a zeal that consumed him.”“The word that came from the Father was more important to him that his bread.”“Let's see if the Bible is true. Jump and see if the angels catch you.”Hermeneutics - laws/rules that govern the interpretation of scripture. First principle: the “analogy of faith” = scripture Has it's own interpreter. That is we interpret scripture with scripture. God never speaks a lie.God's word is coherent and unified.God never contradicts himself.Therefore, what he says in Judges can never contradict what he says in Ephesians.Therefore, if we set one part of scripture against another we violate this first principle of bible interpretation.This is exactly what Satan is doing.BQ: Have you ever considered your personal point of vulnerability if Satan were to come to you with a test?What would he put in front of you?Glory?A kingdom? (A company, an organization, an institution)Riches?Power?He offered all of these things to Jesus in exchange for one thing—worship.Jesus already knew he was getting all of that. But Satan was tempting him to get it with a shortcut—without the cross.BQ: How do you respond to Satan's temptations when you're alone and no one can see you?“Get our of here, Satan!”Notes from Warren Wiersbe's commentaryTemptation 1: Satan appealed to the body; the flesh.Satan suggests that if Christ were God's son, he wouldn't let Jesus stay hungry as if God were holding out on him. (Does God really love you? Answer, see Matt 3:17)God tests us in ordinary things in life.Word > BreadTemptation 2: Satan appealed to Jesus proving himself.Satan leaves out “in all your ways” (Psalm 91:11-12) when quoting this Psalm.Temptation s3: Satan appealed to Jesus with an “easier way” to become king. Appeal to by-pass the cross and suffering.Kingdom already promised to Jesus (Ps 2:6-9)Kingdom received after dying on the cross.“Whatever we worship (what we order our lives around) is the god we serve.” -WWWe cannot serve both God and god. Matt 6:24Says Jesus was tested so that every creature would know that Jesus Christ conquerors. Jesus exposed Satan's tactics and defeated him.We have victory because he was victorious here and ultimately at the cross.Adam & Eve Jesus vs SatanGarden of Eden Wilderness/DesertPlenty of food, drink FastingShade, shelter No shelter from the weatherCompanionship AloneSuggestion 1: Satan always suggesting that God is depriving you of what's good (is God really good; does he really love you?); he must not love us!Suggestion 2: Use your divine power to meet your own needs and those around you.“When we put our physical needs ahead of our spiritual needs, we sin.” -WW“Jesus could have turned the stones into bread, but he would have been exercising his powers independently of the Father; and he came to obey the Father.” -WWGod's word IS our food. John 4:32-34Third temptation: Shortcut to the kingdom.“Satan has always wanted worship, because Satan has always wanted to be God.” -WW“Worshipping the creature instead of the Creator is the lie that rules our world today.” -WW“If we want to share in the glory, we must also share in the suffering.” (1 Peter 5:10)No cross—no crown“Whatever we worship, we will serve.”Worship and service go together.Jesus calls others to obey after he obeyed.References/Bibliography:“Preaching the Word” Commentary, Douglas Sean O'Donnell, Edited by Kent Hughes“Matthew” by RC Sproul“The Bible Knowledge Commentary” by Walvoord, Zuck (BKC)“The Bible Exposition Commentary” by Warren Wiersbe (BEC)“Exalting Jesus in Matthew” by David Platt (CCE)Outline Bible, D WillmingtonNIV Study Bible (NIVSB)ESV Study BibleESV Gospel Transformation Bible (GTB)

In this encouraging Mother's Day message, Pastor Kong Hee draws four characteristics of a godly mother from the unlikely example of Bathsheba. Despite the abuse and tragedies she endured because of King David (2 Samuel 11), Bathsheba clung on to God and kept her consecration, resulting in her being listed in the genealogy of Jesus (Matthew 1:6). Pastor Kong teaches four things a godly mother does: one, she reads the Bible. It is believed that Bathsheba's words to her son Solomon formed Proverbs 1 to 10. Two, a godly mother prays and trusts the Lord (Prov 3:5). Three, a godly mother loves unconditionally (Prov 3:3-4) and four, a godly mother forgives unceasingly. Mothers, listen and be strengthened by the word.
Notes:Definitions:- Fantasy is a sub-genre of speculative fiction involving magical elements, typically set in a fictional universe and sometimes inspired by mythology and folklore. Its roots are in oral traditions, which then became fantasy literature and drama.- Science fiction is a sub-genre of speculative fiction that typically deals with imaginative and futuristic concepts such as advanced science and technology, space exploration, time travel, parallel universes, and extraterrestrial life.The Verbivore reads two quotes towards the beginning of the episode. They are:- “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” - science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke- “Any magic that is sufficiently systematized is indistinguishable from science.” - science fantasy writer N. K. JemisinThe Verbivore talks about a conversation between James Cameron and George Lucas about if Star Wars is science fiction on James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction series.

There are ten generations which have been given names, and these date back to births starting in 1890. The naming of generations is a sort of haphazard process, and is usually , but not always, predicated upon a book title such as 'The Greatest Generation' or 'Generation X'. In this story we discuss all the named generations, how they got their names, why and to whom they are important, and the characteristics common to those born into those generations. You should find it interesting as to how well the characteristics match those of you and your family.
