Rest matters. You can get in some pretty funny and embarrassing situations if you don't have rest. Every single person has probably had their picture taken at least once while asleep in the car or in a classroom with drool rolling down their cheek. I could tell story after story of hilarious instances where lack of rest has caused people to be embarrassed. – Sara seeing man fall asleep at Christmas Eve service and put money in communion – Pictures
Great Shakings Bring Man-child Revival (4) (Audio) David Eells - 7/31/22 Eve Brast in a dream saw 7 large earthquakes that went around the world. Our consideration at that time was that this was caused by an earth tide which would go around the world disrupting the crust as it spun in the face of the passing Planet X. These first 3 revelations resemble this in magnitude and scope. Bill Weather was shown 8 signs by the Lord as a countdown to the date September 12th 2022 for a Mega Japan Quake and tsunami to ruin the U.S. West coastline as a sign of, weeks later, the coming of the California Mega Quake. (Dates are always subject to change due to the Lord's people praying and judgments delayed etc. A delay is not necessarily a delete. Link: Prophecies, Dreams & Visions: Date setting and delays? How to judge the false.) Below are prophesies by Joe Brandt and William Branham from the 1930's that confirm what the Lord is showing Bill Weather: In 1937 Joe Brandt saw an Earthquake sink Los Angeles, much of California and Japan The Coming Earthquake Introduction by Jessica Madigan (Mei Ling) On Christmas Eve, in 1965, my husband—my closest friend, Fran Brandt, and her husband, Joe, were celebrating with sandwiches, and coffee, and fruit cake...For some reason, Joe—Fran's husband—ventured to speak of the coming California earthquake. ... Joe was saying that he had an accident—a fall from a horse when he was 17, and for days he had a concussion. During this period, a continuous dream came again and again—as if he were viewing a tremendous earthquake and inundation in California and other parts of the world. I listened—politely—made some comment, and turned to talk to Fran about a new movie—or some equally world shaking event. I was vaguely aware that Joe had brought in a sheaf of papers—and he said he would put it in my downstairs desk [in 1965] until I had time to read the "dream". That time did not arrive, until, by accident, I came across them this last week [in 1967]—pages upon pages—written in a boy's handwriting, about the coming California earthquake. It would take weeks to research all this material—but I phoned my former geology professor and read portions to him. COULD THIS HAPPEN? COULD CALIFORNIA GO DOWN IN JUST THIS WAY? WOULD OTHER AREAS BE AFFECTED IN A MATTER OF HOURS? He answered in the affirmative. Joe had written (sleeping and dreaming—and in drowsy awakening—about positions of various FAULTS, strata of rock, earth movements, so much material that a geologist of many years would scarcely attempt such a work [this geological data was omitted from Jessica's book]. Yet—here it was—waiting for me to find it for two years. ... Consciously, he knew nothing of geology or of the possibility of a coming earthquake. The notes are 30 years old—yellowed with age—and yet there is a clarity and an unbelievable reality in them. Some of the highlights must be given—because, I am certain now, as I was not certain on Christmas Eve of 1965, that the California earthquake WILL come . . . and its coming is close at hand. Since Joe covered the AREAS AROUND THE WORLD WHICH WOULD BE AFFECTED, not all of these can be given, ... but for those of us in THIS LAND . . . especially CALIFORNIA, these are the highlights of that vision. Dream of an Earthquake Sinking Los Angeles, Much of California and Japan Joe Brandt - 1937 (Link) I woke up in the hospital room with a terrific headache—as if the whole world was revolving inside my brain. I remember, vaguely, the fall from my horse—Blackie. As I lay there, pictures began to form in my mind—pictures that stood still. I seemed to be in another world. Whether it was the future, or it was some ancient land, I could not say. Then slowly, like the silver screen of the "talkies," but with color and smell and sound, I seemed to find myself in Los Angeles—but I swear it was much bigger, and buses and odd-shaped cars crowded the city streets. I thought about Hollywood Boulevard, and I found myself there. Whether this is true, I do not know, but there were a lot of guys my age with beards and wearing, some of them, earrings. All the girls, some of them keen-o, wore real short skirts. . . and they slouched along—moving like a dance. Yet they seemed familiar. I wondered if I could talk to them, and I said, "Hello," but they didn't see or hear me. I decided I would look as funny to them as they looked to me. I guess it is something you have to learn. I couldn't do it. I noticed there was a quietness about the air, a kind of stillness. Something else was missing, something that should be there. At first, I couldn't figure it out, I didn't know what it was—then I did. There were no birds. I listened. I walked two blocks north of the Boulevard—all houses—no birds. I wondered what had happened to them. Had they gone away? Again, I could hear the stillness. Then I knew something was going to happen. I wondered what year it was. It certainly was not 1937. I saw a newspaper on the corner with a picture of the President. It surely wasn't Mr. Roosevelt. He was bigger, heavier, big ears. If it wasn't 1937, I wondered what year it was. . . My eyes weren't working right. Someone was coming—someone in 1937—it was that darned, fat nurse ready to take my temperature. I woke up. Crazy dream. The next day: Gosh, my headache is worse. It is a wonder I didn't get killed on that horse. I've had another crazy dream, back in Hollywood. Those people. Why do they dress like that, I wonder? Funny glow about them. It is a shine around their heads—something shining. I remember it now. I found myself back on the Boulevard. I was waiting for something to happen and I was going to be there. I looked up at the clock down by that big theater. It was ten minutes to four. Something big was going to happen. I wondered if I went into a movie (since nobody could see me) if I'd like it. Some cardboard blond was draped over the marquee with her leg six feet long. I started to go in, but it wasn't inside. I was waiting for something to happen outside. I walked down the street. In the concrete they have names of stars. I just recognized a few of them. The other names I had never heard. I was getting bored, I wanted to get back to the hospital in Fresno, and I wanted to stay there on the Boulevard, even if nobody could see me. Those crazy kids. Why are they dressed like that? Maybe it is some big Halloween doings, but it don't seem like Halloween. More like early spring. There was that sound again, that lack of sound. Stillness, stillness, stillness. The quiet is getting bigger and bigger. I know it is going to happen. Something is going to happen. It is happening now! It sure did. She woke me up, grinning and smiling, that fat one again. "It's time for your milk, kiddo," she says. Gosh, old women of thirty acting like the cat's pajamas. Next time maybe she'll bring hot chocolate. Where have I been? Where haven't I been? I've been to the ends of the earth and back. I've been to the end of the world—there isn't anything left. Not even Fresno, even though I'm lying here right this minute. If only my eyes would get a little clearer so I can write all this down. Nobody will believe me, anyway. I'm going back to that last moment on the Boulevard. Some sweet kid went past, dragging little boys (twins, I guess) by each hand. Her skirt was up—well, pretty high—and she had a tired look. I thought for a minute I could ask her about the birds, what had happened to them, and then I remembered she hadn't seen me. Her hair was all frowzy, way out all over her head. A lot of them looked like that, but she looked so tired and like she was sorry about something. I guess she was sorry before it happened—because it surely did happen. There was a funny smell. I don't know where it came from. I didn't like it. A smell like sulphur, sulfuric acid, a smell like death. For a minute I thought I was back in chem. [Chemistry class]. When I looked around for the girl, she was gone. I wanted to find her for some reason. It was as if I knew something was going to happen and I could stay with her, help her. She was gone, and I walked half a block, then I saw the clock again. My eyes seemed glued to that clock. I couldn't move. I just waited. It was five minutes to four on a sunny afternoon. I thought I would stand there looking at that clock forever waiting for something to come. Then, when it came, it was nothing. It was just nothing. It wasn't nearly as hard as the earthquake we had two years ago. The ground shook, just an instant. People looked at each other, surprised. Then they laughed. I laughed, too. So this was what I had been waiting for. This funny little shake. It meant nothing. I was relieved and I was disappointed. What had I been waiting for? I started back up the Boulevard, moving my legs like those kids. How do they do it? I never found out. I felt as if the ground wasn't solid under me, knew I was dreaming, and yet I wasn't dreaming. There was that smell again, coming up from the ocean. I was getting to the 5 and 10 store and I saw the look on the kids' faces. Two of them were right in front of me, coming my way. "Let's get out of this place. Let's go back East." He seemed scared. It wasn't as if the sidewalks were trembling—but you couldn't seem to see them. Not with your eyes you couldn't. An old lady had a dog, a little white dog, and she stopped and looked scared, and grabbed him in her arms and said: "Let's go home, Frou, Frou. Mama is going to take you home." That poor lady, hanging on to her dog. I got scared. Real scared. I remembered the girl. She was way down the block, probably. I ran and ran, and the ground kept trembling. I couldn't see it. I couldn't see it. But I knew it was trembling. Everybody looked scared. They looked terrible. One young lady just sat down on the sidewalk all doubled up. She kept saying, "earthquake, its the earthquake," over and over. But I couldn't see that anything was different. Then, when it came, how it came. Like nothing in God's world. Like nothing. It was like the scream of a siren, long and low, or the scream of a woman I heard having a baby when I was a kid. It was awful. It was as if something—some monster—was pushing up the sidewalks. You felt it long before you saw it, as if the sidewalks wouldn't hold you anymore. I looked out at the cars. They were honking, but not scared. They just kept moving. They didn't seem to know yet that anything was happening. Then, that white car, that baby half-sized one came sprawling from the inside lane right against the curb. The girl who was driving just sat there. She sat there with her eyes staring, as if she couldn't move, but I could hear her. She made funny noises. I watched her, thinking of the other girl. I said that it was a dream and I would wake up. But I didn't wake up. The shaking had started again, but this time different. It was a nice shaking, like a cradle being rocked for a minute, and then I saw the middle of the Boulevard seem to be breaking in two. The concrete looked as if it were being pushed straight up by some giant shovel. It was breaking in two. That is why the girl's car went out of control. And then a loud sound again, like I've never heard before—then hundreds of sounds—all kinds of sounds; children, and women, and those crazy guys with earrings. They were all moving, some of them above the sidewalk. I can't describe it. They were lifted up. And the waters kept oozing—oozing. The cries. God, it was awful. I woke up. I never want to have that dream again. It came again. Like the first time which was a preview and all I could remember was that it was the end of the world. I was right back there—all that crying. Right in the middle of it. My eardrums felt as if they were going to burst. Noise everywhere. People falling down, some of them hurt badly. Pieces of buildings, chips, flying in the air. One hit me hard on the side of the face, but I didn't seem to feel it. I wanted to wake up, to get away from this place. It had been fun in the beginning, the first dream, when I kind of knew I was going to dream the end of the world or something. This was terrible. There were older people in cars. Most of the kids were on the street. But those old guys were yelling bloody murder, as if anybody could help them. Nobody could help anybody. It was then I felt myself lifted up. Maybe I had died. I don't know. But I was over the city. It was tilting toward the ocean—like a picnic table. The buildings were holding, better than you could believe. They were holding. They were holding. They were holding. The people saw they were holding and they tried to cling to them or get inside. It was fantastic. Like a building had a will of its own. Everything else breaking around them, and they were holding, holding. I was up over them—looking down. I started to root for them. "Hold that line," I said. "Hold that line. Hold that line. Hold that line." I wanted to cheer, to shout, to scream. If the buildings held, those buildings on the Boulevard, maybe the girl—the girl with the two kids—maybe she could get inside. It looked that way for a long time, maybe three minutes, and three minutes was like forever. You knew they were going to hold, even if the waters kept coming up. Only they didn't. I've never imagined what it would be like for a building to die. A building dies just like a person. It gives way, some of the bigger ones did just that. They began to crumble, like an old man with palsy, who couldn't take it anymore. They crumbled right down to nothing. And the little ones screamed like mad—over and above the roar of the people. They were mad about dying. But buildings die. I couldn't look anymore at the people. I kept wanting to get higher. Then I seemed to be out of it all, but I could see. I seemed to be up on Big Bear near San Bernardino, but the funny thing was that I could see everywhere. I knew what was happening. The earth seemed to start to tremble again. I could feel it even though I was high up. This time it lasted maybe twelve seconds, and it was gentle. You couldn't believe anything so gentle could cause so much damage. But then I saw the streets of Los Angeles—and everything between the San Bernardino mountains and Los Angeles. It was still tilting towards the ocean, houses, everything that was left. I could see the big lanes—dozens of big lanes still loaded with cars sliding the same way. Now the ocean was coming in, moving like a huge snake across the land. I wondered how long it was, and I could see the clock, even though I wasn't there on the Boulevard. It was 4:29. It had been half an hour. I was glad I couldn't hear the crying anymore. But I could see everything. I could see everything. Then, like looking at a huge map of the world, I could see what was happening on the land and with the people. San Francisco was feeling it, but she was not in any way like Hollywood or Los Angeles. It was moving just like that earthquake movie with Jeanette McDonald and Gable. I could see all those mountains coming together. . . I knew it was going to happen to San Francisco—it was going to turn over—it would turn upside down. It went quickly, because of the twisting, I guess. It seemed much faster than Hollywood, but then I wasn't exactly there. I was a long way off. I was a long, long way off. I shut my eyes for a long time—I guess ten minutes—and when I opened them I saw Grand Canyon. When I looked at Grand Canyon, that great big gap was closing in, and Boulder Dam was being pushed, from underneath. And then, Nevada, and on up to Reno. Way down south, way down. Baja, California. Mexico too. It looked like some volcano down there was erupting, along with everything else. I saw the map of South America, especially Colombia. Another volcano—eruption—shaking violently. I seemed to be seeing a movie of three months before—before the Hollywood earthquake. Venezuela seemed to be having some kind of volcanic activity. Away off in the distance, I could see Japan, on a fault, too. It was so far off—not easy to see because I was still on Big Bear Mountain, but it started to go into the sea. I couldn't hear screaming, but I could see the surprised look on their faces. They looked so surprised. Japanese girls are made well, supple, easy, muscles that move well. Pretty, too. But they were all like dolls. It was so far away I could hardly see it. In a minute or two it seemed over. Everybody was gone. There was nobody left. [Brother Branham said: "Japan . . . she's ready to rock to pieces right now. And there's no way you can stop it, because they have neglected to do exactly what God told them to do. Instead of preach of Gospel, they have built buildings, and had fine scholarships, and educations" (Uncertain Sound, #61-0415E)]. I didn't know time now. I couldn't see a clock. I tried to see the island of Hawaii. I could see huge tidal waves beating against it. The people on the streets were getting wet, and they were scared. But I didn't see anybody go into the sea. I seemed way around the globe. More flooding. Is the world going to be drenched? Constantinople. Black Sea rising. Suez Canal, for some reason seemed to be drying up. Sicily—she doesn't hold. I could see a map. Mt. Etna. Mt. Etna is shaking. A lot of area seemed to go, but it seemed to be earlier or later. I wasn't sure of time, now. England—huge floods—but no tidal waves. Water, water everywhere, but no one was going into the sea. People were frightened and crying. Some places they fell to the streets on their knees and started to pray for the world. I didn't know the English were emotional. Ireland, Scotland—all kinds of churches were crowded—it seemed night and day. People were carrying candles and everybody was crying for California, Nevada, parts of Colorado—maybe even all of it, even Utah. Everybody was crying—most of them didn't even know anybody in California, Nevada, Utah, but they were crying as if they were blood kin. Like one family. Like it happened to them. New York was coming into view—she was still there, nothing had happened, yet water level was way up. Here, things were different. People were running in the streets yelling—"end of the world." Kids ran into restaurants and ate everything in sight. I saw a shoe store with all the shoes gone in about five minutes. 5th Avenue—everybody running. Some radio blasting—bigger—a loud speaker—that in a few minutes, power might be shut off. They must control themselves. Five girls were running like mad toward the YMCA, that place on Lexington or somewhere. But nothing was happening in New York. I saw an old lady with garbage cans filling them with water. Everybody seemed scared to death. Some people looked dazed. The streets seemed filled with loud speakers. It wasn't daylight. It was night. I saw, like the next day, and everything was topsy turvey. Loud speakers again about fuel tanks broken in areas—shortage of oil. People seemed to be looting markets. I saw a lot of places that seemed safe, and people were not so scared. Especially the rural areas. Here everything was almost as if nothing had happened. People seemed headed to these places, some on foot, some in cars that still had fuel. I heard—or somehow I knew—that somewhere in the Atlantic land had come up. A lot of land. I was getting awfully tired. I wanted to wake up. I wanted to go back to the girl—to know where she was—and those two kids. I found myself back in Hollywood—and it was still 4:29. I wasn't up on Big Bear at all, I was perched over Hollywood. I was just there. It seemed perfectly natural in my dream. I could hear now. I could hear, someplace, a radio station blasting out—telling people not to panic. They were dying in the streets. There were picture stations with movies—some right in Hollywood—these were carrying on with all the shaking. One fellow in the picture station was a little short guy who should have been scared to death. But he wasn't. He kept shouting and reading instructions. Something about helicopters or planes would go over—some kind of planes—but I knew they couldn't. Things were happening in the atmosphere. The waves were rushing up now. Waves. Such waves. Nightmare waves. Then, I saw again. Boulder Dam, going down—pushing together, pushing together breaking apart—no, Grand Canyon was pushing together, and Boulder Dam was breaking apart. It was still daylight. All these radio stations went off at the same time—Boulder Dam had broken. I wondered how everybody would know about it—people back East. That was when I saw the "ham radio operators." I saw them in the darndest places, as if I were right there with them. Like the little guy with glasses, they kept sounding the alarm. One kept saying: "This is California. We are going into the sea. This is California. We are going into the sea. Get to high places. Get to the mountains. All states west—this is California. We are going into the. . . we are going into the. . ." I thought he was going to say "sea," but I could see him. He was inland, but the waters had come in. His hand was still clinging to the table, he was trying to get up, so that once again he could say: "This is California. We are going into the sea. This is California. We are going into the sea." I seemed to hear this, over and over, for what seemed hours—just those words—they kept it up until the last minute—all of them calling out, "Get to the mountains—this is California. We are going into the sea." I woke up. It didn't seem as if I had been dreaming. I have never been so tired. For a minute or two, I thought it had happened. I wondered about two things. I hadn't seen what happened to Fresno and I hadn't found out what happened to that girl. I've been thinking about it all morning. I'm going home tomorrow. It was just a dream. It was nothing more. Nobody in the future on Hollywood Boulevard is going to be wearing earrings—and those beards. Nothing like that is ever going to happen. That girl was so real to me—that girl with those kids. It won't ever happen—but if it did, how could I tell her (maybe she isn't even born yet) to move away from California when she has her twins—and she can't be on the Boulevard that day. She was so gosh-darned real. The other thing—those ham operators—hanging on like that—over and over—saying the same thing: "This is California. We are going into the sea. This is California. We are going into the sea. Get to the mountains. Get to the hilltops. California, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, Utah. This is California. We are going into the sea." I guess I'll hear that for days. Confirming Prophecies of William Branham A prophecy that I made about 1935 or something like that, said: "The time would come that the sea would weep it's way into the desert." Look what'll take place. If that thousands of square miles falls down into the lava of the earth and slides in, there'll be millions die at one time. And that'll cause such a tidal wave. . . Remember, plumb up into the Salton Sea is a hundred or two hundred feet lower than the sea level. That water will probably come almost to Tucson with that tidal wave coming across there. And the sea shall weep its way into the desert (William Branham, Trying to do God a Service without being in the Will of God, p. 6:25). [The Spirit of the Lord came upon the Prophet as he was preaching in Los Angeles]: "We don't know what time. And you don't know what time that this city one day is going to be laying out here in the bottom of this ocean." "O, Capernaum," said Jesus, "Thou who exalted into heaven will be brought down into hell, for if the mighty works had been done in Sodom and Gomorrah, it'd have been standing till this day." And Sodom and Gomorrah lays at the bottom of the Dead Sea, and Capernaum's in the bottom of the sea. Thou city, who claims to be the city of the Angels, who's exalted yourself into heaven and sent all the dirty filthy things of fashions and things, till even the foreign countries come here to pick up our filth and send it away, with your fine churches and steeples, and so forth the way you do; remember, one day you'll be laying in the bottom of this sea. There's a great cavernous honeycomb under you right now. The wrath of God is belching right beneath you. How much longer will He hold together this sandbar hanging over that? That ocean out yonder ,a mile deep, will slide plumb back to the Salton Sea. It'll be worse than the last day of Pompeii. Repent, Los Angeles. Repent the rest of you and turn to God. The hour of His wrath is upon the earth. Flee while there's time to flee and come into Christ." Let us pray." (Choosing a Bride, p. 35:3-5). [And again]: "The last meeting I had in California, while speaking, and didn't know nothing happened till I got on the street, It told California, I said, "Capernaum, Capernaum, the city that's called by the name of the angels (that's Los Angeles), you've exalted yourself into heaven, but you'll be brought down into hell. For if the mighty works had been done in Sodom that's been done in you, it would've been standing till this day." "Now, the last few days, the great roaring and popping. Then, here come out a paper of science that said, "It's all honeycombed; it's got to go under." They just know it." "And you watch, the water will come plumb back into the Salton Sea. Los Angeles is doomed for judgment. I tell you before it happened, that you might know when it does happen. I never spoke that by myself. And I've never had Him to tell me one thing but what happened. And you can bear record of that. That's right. When? I don't know." "I went out, and they told me what I said. And I listened, went back and searched the Scripture. You know, Jesus said, almost in them same words about Capernaum; and Sodom and Gomorrah was in the bottom of the Dead Sea, I suppose was then. And later, about a hundred years later, Capernaum slid into the sea, and it's in the sea. The same God that put Sodom in the sea for its sins, the same God that put Capernaum in the sea for its sins, the same God will put Los Angeles in the sea for its sins, that city of corruption." (Works is Faith Expressed, p. 8:61-64). (Physical earthquakes and tsunami's can be a sign of spiritual earthquakes and tsunami's. A division of peoples and judgments upon peoples can be signified here. Lets look at the latter spiritual scenario now.) Three Tsunami's of Judgment Hit the West Coast Living in His Glory Ministry - YouTube - 7/7/22 (David's notes in red) In the dream me and my wife were in our house and we were just doing our regular stuff around the house. All of a sudden, we see water start to pour into the house. (Physical tsunami's don't start slowly pouring into a house. They can travel 500 - 700 miles per hour. These are the waters of the Curse of Judgment that begins at the House of God and then makes its way to the rest of the wicked outside of the Church. 1 Pe. 4:17 For the time is come for judgment to begin at the house of God: and if it begin first at us, what shall be the end of them that obey not the gospel of God?) We left the house and took the keys, the wallet, the phone and the stuff we needed and ran out the house up this huge flight of stairs. (The wallet represents provision. The keys represent the key of David. The phone represents our constant communication with the Spirit of God. Rev. 3:7-10 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth and none shall shut, and that shutteth and none openeth: I know thy works (behold, I have set before thee a door opened, which none can shut), that thou hast a little power, and didst keep my word, and didst not deny my name. 9 Behold, I give of the synagogue of Satan, of them that say they are Jews, and they are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10 Because thou didst keep the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of trial, that hour which is to come upon the whole world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. As we were running up this flight of stairs, I remember telling people, “God's done with it! He's tired of the homosexuals and of people living in sin! He's tired of people fornicating! He gave you time to repent and the same God that flooded Noah's age is the same God that's about to flood you! Repent so you can make it up the stairs!” (Pro 18:10 The name of Jehovah is a strong tower; The righteous runneth into it, and is safe. And 2 Pe. 2:4-9 For if God spared not angels when they sinned, but cast them down to hell, and committed them to pits of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5 and spared not the ancient world, but preserved Noah with seven others, a preacher of righteousness, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, having made them an example unto those that should live ungodly; and delivered righteous Lot, sore distressed by the lascivious life of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their lawless deeds): 9 the Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment unto the day of judgment.) When I said this, I was referring to this long staircase that was a very tall platform. (Since it's very unlikely that you would see such a platform near the beach and you couldn't outrun a tsunami anyway, this platform represents that in Pro 18:10 The name of Jehovah is a strong tower; The righteous runneth into it, and is safe.) The people on the beach were dressed however they wanted to be, and they laughed at me, as well as the rush of other people that were with me to go up these stairs. (Along with the righteous, those in apostate Christianity may escape some of the initial judgments but ultimately, without repentance, they will be judged for their idolatry with the world and its ways.) So me and my wife go up these stairs and we were looking down from the balcony and we saw this massive tsunami. It was as high as a skyscraper. It hit the West coast and the beaches and killed everyone on the beaches. (Now we do not deny that this could physically happen but, over all, this is obviously a spiritual dream.) And this is the crazy part, we were in a very very high platform that had a staircase going up and on the platform there was a bunch of other people we didn't know. But we were all looking at each other and some people were cooking and talking and other people were just looking down and I was with my wife. This was a massive platform like the size of a small city. (Now if you believe this is literal, I will show you a 7 headed monster with 10 horns that some people also say is literal because they manipulated their DNA. Psa. 9:7-12 But Jehovah sitteth as king for ever: He hath prepared his throne for judgment; 8 And he will judge the world in righteousness, He will minister judgment to the peoples in uprightness. 9 Jehovah also will be a high tower for the oppressed, A high tower in times of trouble; 10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee; For thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. 11 Sing praises to Jehovah, who dwelleth in Zion: Declare among the people his doings. 12 For he that maketh inquisition for blood remembereth them; He forgetteth not the cry of the poor.) The tsunami was not high enough to reach where we were on the balcony. There was a comfortable amount of separation between us and the tsunami. So we came back down after the tsunami hit and everybody that was on this platform came down and we go back to our regular life. We went back into the house and we were talking and we went back to cooking and to our regular life. (This indicates that the judgments will come in waves because the house was not taken out by the tsunami.) Then the second time, the same thing happened. We saw water coming into the house again, so we went in a hurry, drove our car, parked and this time, there's people arguing in the parking lot! I was like, “Y'all just drop the argument! Let's go up to the platform quickly and this time we didn't try to evangelize, we just ran straight up to the the balcony to this platform. (Rom. 14:1-4 But him that is weak in faith receive ye, yet not for decision of scruples. (Or doubtful disputations) 2 One man hath faith to eat all things: but he that is weak eateth herbs. 3 Let not him that eateth set at nought him that eateth not; and let not him that eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him. 4 Who art thou that judgest the servant of another? to his own lord he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be made to stand; for the Lord hath power to make him stand.) The tsunami was even taller this time but the platform was taller too. Everybody was on the beach again the same way as was the first time. I remember thinking to myself and telling everybody around me on the platform, “They just saw the first crowd get wiped out not long ago! This is ridiculous! Why don't they repent and join us?” (I'm sure Noah felt the same way.) Everyone on the beach were a bunch of homosexuals again dressed real nasty. People were drinking and smoking; doing all that they wanted to do on the beach and the wave came again and just took them all away. I saw these sea creature beasts in the waters mingled in. Again the platform was even higher. So once the tsunami swept everything out to sea then we went down the platform again. Then it happened the third time. This time I remembered more vividly the path that we were taking to run to the platform. And as we were running, there were people looking at us like we were crazy. I said, “Y'all are crazy! You don't understand!” But they just looked at us like we were out of our minds because we had everything we needed like: our ID's, our wallet, some cash, house keys in case we came back again. We just had enough to actually make it to the platform to survive on the platform. But everybody around down on the streets were just talking and so casual, but I and my wife knew in the Spirit that something serious and terrible was about to hit. (Yes it will.) So we ran up to this platform the third time and when I saw the wave coming, we were still very comfortably above the tsunami. This last tsunami was massive because the platform was shaking like an earthquake. It wasn't rocking but we knew there was a seriousness to this last one. Then I woke up and I couldn't go back to sleep for awhile and I prayed about it, that God would account me and my wife worthy to not go through that wave of judgment. (Luk 21:34-36 But take heed to yourselves, lest haply your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that day come on you suddenly as a snare: 35 for so shall it come upon all them that dwell on the face of all the earth. 36 But watch ye at every season, making supplication, that ye may prevail to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.) My interpretation of the dream is that there's going to be a series of judgments that's going to be passed upon the West coast because this place, where I live, is full of wickedness and perversion. (There is a larger interpretation of this dream that involves all of apostate Christianity as well as the wicked of the earth receiving these judgments.) About six months ago, I had a very similar dream where I was on a beach and I was looking. No one was there and it was really dark and cloudy; really ominous feeling. I heard thunder but I didn't see lightning and I knew in the Spirit that a tsunami was coming. Then a couple months later, I dreamed I saw our family members that don't want to go with Christ and I was on a boat with Jesus and I reached my hand out and said, “Y'all get on the boat in Jesus' name and they said, ” We'll get on the boat but don't say, “In Jesus' name.” I said, “What are you talking about?! Get on the boat so you don't drown, in Jesus' name!” They just crossed their arms and said, “No” and they drowned and died. Then I woke up. God isn't playing y'all. When the Word of God tells us to repent it means, “Stop living in sin!” You can stop living in sin. You can carry your cross…You need to be walking by the Spirit to not get swept away; walk by the Spirit and you will not satisfy the desires of the flesh and get ready. We're not going to make it … trusting in our own wisdom to get out of judgment. Household Salvation from Tsunami's Angelica Garza - 7/14/22 (David's notes in red) After watching some videos concerning prophetic warnings of tsunami's, I was praying for all the people, and for my family that lives on the Gulf Coast of Texas. I asked the Lord to show me if my family was in danger, or if any tsunami would hit Corpus Christi. I am not sure if this dream is literal or spiritual or both, so I will just share what I remember. In the dream, I was at my aunt's house which is a small wooden house, only in the dream the house was not exactly the same as it is in real life. The inside layout seemed bigger and different. (This represents the larger corporate apostate Church. Which many of our loved ones are still trapped in.) God likens Israel and Judah as two sisters, represented by the Aunt and Angelica's mom, in Eze. 23:1-31. In verse 4 it says, Oholah the elder, and Oholibah her sister: and they became mine, and they bare sons and daughters. And as for their names, Samaria is Oholah, and Jerusalem Oholibah. These two played the Harlot with the surrounding nations and were judged by God.) I was looking out from what should be the back door or porch area, only it was not the backyard... The “porch" looked like the sea wall we have in downtown Corpus Christi which has steps leading down to the sea level. Instead of seeing the sea, it seemed I was looking out at a dried-up river bed.My brother and sister's home was way out in the distance to the right. It seemed the water had already receded way beyond their home. I knew that it was still receding even beyond my view. It was building up to be something terrible or massive like a huge tsunami. (Representing huge judgments coming upon the apostate Church. But many of God's elect will be sparred or preserved through it.) I called my mom and aunt out to come and see, as I was alarmed about it. I told them it was coming and we need to get back inside the house before it came. My mom was being stubborn and was not concerned. This upset me but she reluctantly went inside. (The apostate Church has been ignoring God's true prophets and His warnings for many years. Their doctrine allows their stubborn, self-willed rebellion to the Word of God because of their false doctrinal beliefs. The Lord will have mercy on many who are trapped in apostasy so that they can be saved in the coming judgments.) The water now began to rush in slowly (sort of in a controlled fashion). It seems that it should of come in much faster in natural terms, but it didn't. (This is just like the revelation above where the water started coming in to the house but they had time to make it to the tower of safety.) The water was coming up the steps and above the house. The odd thing is that I was still watching it through a glass door that I had not seen before. It was like watching fish and things in an aquarium with mirky water. (Mat 13:47-50 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: 48 which, when it was filled, they drew up on the beach; and they sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but the bad they cast away. 49 So shall it be in the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the righteous, 50 and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.) Now somehow, I was in the bathroom on the right side of the back door and I was now trapped in there with the same aquarium-type view of the murky water above the house. (The bathroom is a place where we get rid of spiritual waste in our lives, then we will be on the right side.) I was thinking, “Can I breathe in here?”, “I just have to wait until the water goes down.” (Being able to breathe under the water represents that the "new man" is safe, but the “old man” dies in the baptism.) I knew the water would go down and that somehow the house would still be left standing. Then I woke up. (The house is our external vessel which is now taken over by the spiritual man.)I asked the Lord for a word by faith at random and my finger was on “a centurion came to beseech him.” (This story represents the household salvation that we receive for our loved ones through faith in the promises.) Mat 8:5 (5-13 in context) 5 And when he was entered into Capernaum, (In William Branham's prophecy above the Lord is calling Los Angeles, “Capernaum”. Los Angeles will fall into the sea just as Sodom and Gomorrah did. Just like the Centurion's servant was saved in Capernaum through his faith so will our loved ones be.) there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, 6 and saying, Lord, my servant lieth in the house sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. 7 And he saith unto him, I will come and heal him. 8 And the centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof; but only say the word, and my servant shall be healed. 9 For I also am a man under authority, having under myself soldiers: and I say to this one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. 10 And when Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 11 And I say unto you, that many shall come from the east and the west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven: 12 but the sons of the kingdom shall be cast forth into the outer darkness: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth. 13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And the servant was healed in that hour. I was thinking of Isa 43:1-21 for the dream: 1 But now thus saith Jehovah that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed thee; I have called thee by thy name, thou art mine. 2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. 3 For I am Jehovah thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour; I have given Egypt as thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in thy stead. 4 Since thou hast been precious in my sight, and honorable, and I have loved thee; therefore will I give men in thy stead, and peoples instead of thy life. 5 Fear not; for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; 6 I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back; bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the end of the earth; 7 every one that is called by my name, and whom I have created for my glory, whom I have formed, yea, whom I have made. 8 Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears. 9 Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the peoples be assembled: who among them can declare this, and show us former things? let them bring their witnesses, that they may be justified; or let them hear, and say, It is truth. 10 Ye are my witnesses, saith Jehovah, and my servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. 11 I, even I, am Jehovah; and besides me there is no saviour. 12 I have declared, and I have saved, and I have showed; and there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith Jehovah, and I am God. 13 Yea, since the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who can hinder it? 14 Thus saith Jehovah, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and I will bring down all of them as fugitives, even the Chaldeans, in the ships of their rejoicing. 15 I am Jehovah, your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King. 16 Thus saith Jehovah, who maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters; 17 who bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the mighty man (they lie down together, they shall not rise; they are extinct, they are quenched as a wick): 18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now shall it spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. 20 The beasts of the field shall honor me, the jackals and the ostriches; because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen, 21 the people which I formed for myself, that they might set forth my praise.

This piece originally appeared as a sound installation at the Dar A Ouvir festival in Coimbra, Portugal in July 2022. The voice of the world - as heard by Cities and Memory Whether we're protesting or worshipping, joyful or angry, sound is at the very core of human existence - we can hear before we're born, and sound is perhaps the closest and most evocative sense we have. Field recording captures the voice of the world in all of its glorious forms, and in this collection we listen to a series of recordings captured by Cities and Memory founder Stuart Fowkes in various countries around the world, and placed in dialogue with one another. Recordings complement and oppose one another as we are transported from place to place. An anti-terrorism protest in Germany is transformed into a crowd celebrating wildly at a football match. A pagan ritual in a field in England bleeds into a Muslim call to prayer in Saudi Arabia. A pro-Ukraine, anti-war demonstration sits in opposition to a plaintive song by a Russian folk singer. We hear traditional music from performing street troupes, klezmer bands, flamenco dancers and beatboxers, expressing community, hope and sadness in unique and profound ways. This truly is the voice of the world. List of sounds: 1. Pagan ritual at the sacred Rollright Stones, England 2. Maghreb call to prayer in Deera Square, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia 3. Traditional performing street drum troupe, Santiago, Chile 4. Michael Jackson beatboxer, Piccadilly Circus, London, England 5. Festival show introduction, Oxfordshire, England 6. Anti-ISIS protest on the Reeperbahn, Hamburg, Germany 7. Amongst the ultras at a football match, Venezia vs. Cittadella, Italy 8. Pro-EU demonstration 2017, The Mall, London, England 9. Jewish band plays Shalom Aleijim in a metro station, Paris, France 10. Flamenco performance at La Carboneria, Seville, Spain 11. Hare Krishna procession, Cardiff, Wales 12. Ukraine anti-war protest 2022, Oxford, England 13. Traditional Russian folk singer in Red Square, Moscow, Russia 14. Evening vespers prayers sung by monks, Abbazia di Praglia, Italy 15.

Full Text of ReadingsSeventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 111All podcast readings are produced by the USCCB and are from the Catholic Lectionary, based on the New American Bible and approved for use in the United States _______________________________________The Saint of the day is Saint Sharbel MakhloufAlthough this saint never traveled far from the Lebanese village of Beka-Kafra where he was born, his influence has spread widely. Joseph Zaroun Maklouf was raised by an uncle because his father, a mule driver, died when Joseph was only three. At the age of 23, Joseph joined the Monastery of St. Maron at Annaya, Lebanon, and took the name Sharbel in honor of a second-century martyr. He professed his final vows in 1853, and was ordained six years later. Following the example of the fifth-century Saint Maron, Sharbel lived as a hermit from 1875, until his death. His reputation for holiness prompted people to seek him to receive a blessing and to be remembered in his prayers. He followed a strict fast and was very devoted to the Blessed Sacrament. When his superiors occasionally asked him to administer the sacraments to nearby villages, Sharbel did so gladly. He died in the late afternoon on Christmas Eve. Christians and non-Christians soon made his tomb a place of pilgrimage and of cures. Pope Paul VI beatified Sharbel in 1965, and canonized him 12 years later. Reflection John Paul II often said that the Church has two lungs—East and West—and it must learn to breathe using both of them. Remembering saints like Sharbel helps the Church to appreciate both the diversity and unity present in the Catholic Church. Like all the saints, Sharbel points us to God and invites us to cooperate generously with God's grace, no matter what our situation in life may be. As our prayer life becomes deeper and more honest, we become more ready to make that generous response. Saint of the Day, Copyright Franciscan Media

每日英語跟讀 Ep.K403: About heat waves - Heat Wave Killed Marine Wildlife en Masse An early estimate points to a huge die-off along the Pacific Coast, and scientists say rivers farther inland are warming to levels that could be lethal for some kinds of salmon. 一項初步估計顯示，（美國）太平洋沿岸海洋生物大量死亡；科學家則說，更內陸的河川的水溫，正升高到恐令某些鮭魚致命的程度。 Dead mussels and clams coated rocks in the Pacific Northwest, their shells gaping open as if they'd been boiled. Sea stars were baked to death. Sockeye salmon swam sluggishly in an overheated Washington river, prompting wildlife officials to truck them to cooler areas. 死掉的淡菜與蛤蜊佈滿西北太平洋沿岸地區的岩石上，牠們的殼有如被煮熟似地張開。海星被活活烤死。紅鉤吻鮭在過熱的華盛頓河中緩慢游動，促使野生動物官員將之載運到較涼爽的區域。 The combination of extraordinary heat and drought that hit the Western United States and Canada over the past two weeks has killed hundreds of millions of marine animals and continues to threaten untold species in freshwater, according to a preliminary estimate and interviews with scientists. 根據一項初步估計以及對科學家所進行的訪談，美加西部過去兩週來慘遭異常高溫與乾旱襲擊，導致數以億計的海洋生物死亡，並持續威脅無數淡水物種。 Next Article Arctic heatwave could break records 北極熱浪恐破紀錄 Temperatures at the North Pole could be up to 20 degrees higher than average this Christmas Eve. Temperatures are forecast to peak on Christmas Eve around the North Pole - at near-freezing. Climate scientists say these unseasonably warm weather patterns in the Arctic region are directly linked to man-made climate change. 今年耶誕夜的北極氣溫，恐將高出平均溫度達20度。氣溫預報顯示，北極周邊耶誕夜的溫度將升達高峰—接近冰點。氣象科學家說，北極地區這些不合時令的溫暖天氣模式，直接與人為造成的氣候變遷有關。 Temperatures throughout November and December were 5C higher than average. It follows a summer during which Arctic sea ice reached the second-lowest extent ever recorded by satellites. 整個11月與12月的溫度，要比同期平均溫度高出攝氏5度。而在夏季期間，北極海冰的規模達到衛星紀錄以來的第二低程度。 Dr Friederike Otto, a senior researcher at Oxford's Environmental Change Institute said that in pre-industrial times "a heatwave like this would have been extremely rare - we would expect it to occur about every 1,000 years". 牛津大學環境變遷研究所資深研究員奧圖博士說，在工業化前時代「諸如此類的熱浪極為罕見—我們認為大概每1000年才發生一次。」 Dr Otto added that scientists are "very confident" that the weather patterns were linked to anthropogenic climate change. 奧圖博士補充說，科學家「非常確信」該氣溫模式與人為造成的氣候變遷有關。 "We have used several different climate modelling approaches," she said. "And in all our methods, we find the same thing; we cannot model a heatwave like this without the anthropogenic signal." 「我們使用好幾個不同的氣候模型途徑，」她說。「然而在我們的方法中，我們發現相同之處：在缺少人為導因下，我們無法形塑出如此的熱浪。」Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1527294 ; https://news.ltn.com.tw/news/world/paper/1066371

They worked together for raising funds for Ukranian refugees. 51:33 - I think a great topic for a future show would be uniquely New Orleans charities and non-profits. Bridge House Grace House comes to mind and so many others would be great to highlight and celebrate. There is so much good being done in our city 53:04 - Perhaps you could interview someone from the Krewe of Red Beans about their community work. 53:54 - What are a couple food/drink, New Orleans History and Voodoo/Ghost tours you would recommend? 56:43 - I've heard that taking a ferry ride to Algiers and walking the bank is a good way to spend an hour or two seeing New Orleans from a different point of view, but I've also read that the ferry schedule can be inconsistent and somewhat unreliable to plan a day around. What are your thoughts? 58:53 - I am a big planner- planning is part of the fun for me, even if we don't stick to all my plans. Many others, however, believe the best way to enjoy a few days in New Orleans is to go light on the planning and just let the trip happen on its own. What are your thoughts? 1:02:57 - Have you interviewed Sam Malvaney? He lives in the FQ and his home is called the Museum of Bad Taste. 1:03:20 - How did you start your podcast and what has been the best and worst things about it that you didn't expect? 1:07:49 - Is there TV or local icons that are New Orleans Legends ? Such as kids show hosts or guys that did local tv variety shows or similar? Who are celebrities that claim New Orleans as home that might surprise us ? 1:13:52 What's the deal with BIG SHOT soda? Was a New Orleans based soda company with flavors including grape, pineapple, strawberry, black cherry, root beer, creme soda and more. Now owned by a national company 1:15:25 - Is there something happening in town that's causing businesses to close besides the current economy? 1:19:43 - Been a yearly visitor since Mardi Gras 1990. Just got your book this week. It's a definite thumbs up! 1:19:52 - Someone in here asked about the history of the fleur de Lis in New Orleans. French, Italian, Catholic, French Canadian? I'd love to hear an episode on that. 1:20:13 - How easy/hard is it to get into Kermit Ruffin's Mother-In-Law-Lounge? Is it safe to travel to and more importantly from?

Click below for the transcript Transcript A few episodes back, we took a look at the Who's early records, and in passing we talked about the Ivy League, the studio group who sang backing vocals on their first single under that name. In this bonus episode, we're going to look at one of the biggest hits any of the members of the Ivy League were involved in -- a record that became a massive hit, won a Grammy, and changed the career direction of one of the most important comedy bands in Britain. We're going to look at "Winchester Cathedral" by the New Vaudeville Band: [Excerpt: The New Vaudeville Band, "Winchester Cathedral"] In his book Revolution in the Head, Ian MacDonald makes the point that the quintessential line in British psychedelia is from George Harrison's "It's All Too Much", where Harrison sings "Show me that I'm everywhere, and get me home for tea". Whereas American psychedelia is often angry and rebellious -- understandably, since it was often being made by people who were scared of being drafted to fight in a senseless war, and who were living through a time of great instability more generally -- British psychedelia was tinged with nostalgia, both for childhood and for a lost past of the Empire that had now ended. Now, we're going to get into that in much, much, greater detail when we look at the records the Beatles, the Kinks, the Who and others made in this period, but suffice to say that *one* of the several streams of thought that shaped the youth culture of Britain in the 1960s was a nationalistic one, partly in reaction to a perceived dominance by American culture and a belief that there were things about British culture that deserved celebrating too. And part and parcel of that was a celebration of the popular culture of the 1920s and thirties, the height of Britain's influence in the world. This nationalism, incidentally, was *not* necessarily an entirely regressive or reactionary thing, though it certainly had those elements -- there was a strong progressive element to it, and we'll be unpacking the tensions in it in future episodes. For the moment, just take it that we're not talking about the sort of flag-waving xenophobia that has tainted much of modern politics, but something more complicated. This complex relationship with the past had been evident as early as the very early 1960s, with acts like the Alberts and the Temperance Seven reviving 1920s novelty songs in what would now be considered a postmodern style: [Excerpt: The Temperance Seven, "You're Driving Me Crazy "] That had temporarily gone into abeyance with the rise of the Beatles and the bands that followed in their wake, making guitar music inspired by American Black musicians the new popular thing in British culture. But that stream of the culture was definitely there, and it was only a matter of time before music business professionals would notice it again and start to try to capitalise on it. And Geoff Stephens did just that. Stephens was an odd character, who had entered the music business at a relatively late age. Until the age of thirty he worked in a variety of jobs, including as a teacher and an air traffic controller, but he was also involved in amateur theatrics, putting on revues with friends for which he co-wrote songs and sketches. He then went on to write satirical sketches for radio comedy, writing for a programme hosted by Basil Boothroyd, the editor of Punch, and started submitting songs to Denmark Street publishers. Through his submissions, he got a job as a song plugger with a publishing company, and from there moved into writing songs professionally himself. His first hit, co-written as many of his songs were with Les Reed, was "Tell Me When", the debut single for the Applejacks, which made the top ten: [Excerpt: The Applejacks, "Tell Me When"] Many hits as a writer and producer soon followed, including writing "The Crying Game" for Dave Berry: [Excerpt: Dave Berry, "The Crying Game"] And signing Donovan and co-producing his first two albums and earliest hit singles: [Excerpt: Donovan, "Catch the Wind"] Stephens had been making hits for a couple of years when he conceived the novelty record "Winchester Cathedral", which he recorded with John Carter of the Ivy League on lead vocals, imitating the style of Rudy Vallee, one of the most popular singers of the 1920s, who sang through a megaphone -- he became popular before electronic amplification was a big thing. The record was made by session players, and released under the name "The New Vaudeville Band": [Excerpt: The New Vaudeville Band, "Winchester Cathedral"] The record immediately began to sell. It became a massive, massive, worldwide hit, selling three million copies and inspiring a cover version by Rudy Vallee himself: [Excerpt: Rudy Vallee, "Winchester Cathedral"] Oddly, this wasn't the last time in the sixties that a major hit would be inspired by the sound of Rudy Vallee... But Stephens had a problem. People wanted the New Vaudeville Band to tour, and he didn't actually have a touring act. So he turned to the next best thing. The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band were a band of dadaist comedy performers who had a wonderful stage act, which among other things involved their lead singer Vivian Stanshall wearing a gold lame Elvis suit, their drummer Sam Spoons playing spoons and washboard, and comedy moments like band members holding up speech bubbles, so for example when someone took a solo, one of the other members might hold up a cardboard speech bubble saying "Wow! I'm really expressing myself!" Their repertoire largely consisted of novelty tunes -- some from the fifties, but mostly songs they'd learned from old 78s from the 1920s, like their first single: [Excerpt: The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, "My Brother Makes the Noises for the Talkies"] As Bonzos guitarist Neil Innes always told the story, Geoff Stephens was friends with the band's trumpet player Bob Kerr, and called him up asking if the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band wanted to be the touring New Vaudeville Band. Kerr was excited -- his band would get to be proper pop stars! But when he went to talk to the rest of the group, they were dismissive. They were conceptual artists and creative people, and didn't want to be a manufactured pop band. Bob Kerr, on the other hand, thought that being paid vastly more money to do exactly the same stuff he was doing for next to nothing sounded like a great idea, and quit the band. The next thing the rest of his bandmates knew, they were watching him on Top of the Pops, performing with a band with a spoons player, a lead singer who wore a gold lame suit, and band members holding up cardboard speech bubbles. Kerr had taken the group's entire act, and they had to reinvent themselves, turning from 1920s pastiche to modern rock music -- and the chances are very good that we'll be following them up in the future. But of course, as well as an act, the new group needed a singer, and for that Stephens turned to Alan Klein. Now, this is not the Allen Klein who we've mentioned in the main podcast, and who will be coming up again in future episodes. This Alan Klein was someone who had been on the margins of the music industry as a writer and performer for some time. He'd made records with Joe Meek: [Excerpt: Alan Klein, "Striped Purple Shirt"] and he'd co-written the musical What A Crazy World, which had been made into a film which featured his songs being sung by Joe Brown, Marty Wilde, Freddie and the Dreamers, and...Harry H Corbett: [Excerpt: Harry H Corbett: "Things We Never Had"] He'd also made a single solo album, "Well, At Least it's British", which took a satirical look at British life in the 1960s that was hugely influential on Britpop in the 1990s, though the record sold almost nothing at the time: [Excerpt: Alan Klein, "Twentieth-Century Englishman"] With Klein as the new lead singer, the New Vaudeville Band were a real band. And indeed, they had three more top forty hits in the UK, though their most successful song after "Winchester Cathedral" was a song that Stephens and Les Reed wrote for them which wasn't a hit for them: [Excerpt: The New Vaudeville Band, "There's a Kind of Hush"] That *did*, though, become a big hit for Herman's Hermits: [Excerpt: Herman's Hermits, "There's a Kind of Hush"] The New Vaudeville Band were shortlived -- they only had a handful of hits, and Bob Kerr soon left the group after falling out with their manager, Peter Grant -- another figure who we'll definitely be hearing a lot more from in future episodes of the main podcast. Kerr formed Bob Kerr's Whoopee Band with Sam Spoons and Vernon Dudley Bohay-Nowell, two other former members of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, and they had a quietly successful career doing the same act that the early Bonzos had -- all three men also joined in Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band reunion tours in 2006 and 2016. A revived version of the New Vaudeville Band, featuring only the drummer from the touring lineup, performed in the 70s and 80s to little success. But the group's biggest legacy remained their first hit, which actually won the Grammy for Best Contemporary (Rock & Roll) Recording in 1967, beating out a shortlist of "Eleanor Rigby", "Monday Monday", "Cherish", "Good Vibrations", and "Last Train to Clarksville". You can decide for yourselves if "Winchester Cathedral" was, in hindsight, a better record than those. But whether it was or not, it was a fun record that made a lot of people happy. Geoff Stephens, its creator, is unlikely to feature further in this podcast. He wrote many more hit records, but they were almost exclusively for artists like Dana, Tom Jones, Wayne Newton, Ken Dodd, and Mary Hopkin, whose careers lie largely outside the scope of a history of rock music, however broadly defined. He had a long and successful career, but died last Christmas Eve, aged eighty-six, from pneumonia, having been weakened by an earlier bout of covid. So as we enter a second Covid Christmas, I'd just like to say I hope you're all vaccinated, boosted, and otherwise safe. I'm hoping to get one more episode and bonus out before Xmas Eve, and I hope to see you all still here in the New Year. Vo-de-o-do [Excerpt: The New Vaudeville Band, “Winchester Cathedral”]

In celebration of the Fourth of July and as 2022 is the year of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 16 moon landing, Dan sits down for a conversation with Apollo 16 astronaut, the tenth man to walk upon the lunar surface, Charlie Duke. Duke is a retired Air Force Brigadier General and the CAPCOM "voice" of Houston for the historic Apollo 11 mission to the moon in July of 1969. It was such an honor and delight to speak with Charlie. It was like talking to family. His delight in telling his remarkable story is evident. We spoke about his time working as CAPCOM for Apollo 11, his own trip to the moon on Apollo 16 and ultimately how the Lord Jesus Christ saved both Charlie and his family. Here on part two Charlie looks back on his own landing on the moon with John Young, talks a little bit about Buzz Aldrin's communion on the moon after Apollo 11 had landed, remembers James Irwin of Apollo 15 quoting from Psalm 121 from the moon, and reflects on the Apollo 8 crew on Christmas Eve of 1968 reading from the first chapter of Genesis.

This week, while the bros spend their holiday weekend recharging their podcasting batteries (you ever seen a podcasting battery? They're absolute units), we take a trip down memory lane and bring you a little Christmas in July; specifically, our very first Broliday special from Christmas Eve 2018. Thanks for your continued support of Brose, and we'll see you next week with a brand-spanking new 'sode.
On Christmas Eve 2002 Laci Peterson took her dog for a walk, and around 11am the dog returned. But Laci was not with the dog. Her husband Scott called the police to report her missing, and the caused a nationwide search for Laci and their unborn son Connor. The facts surrounding this case become even more strange when Amber Frye Scott's mistress comes into the story. This case of Lust, Lies, and Murder is one of the most bizarre cases of it's time. Today we speak about this case, and what really happened on Christmas Eve 2002. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
Without rules and guidelines, would anarchy ensue? Isn't that what we (me, you, others?!) believe? Or are taught to believe? That anarchy is the natural outcome if there aren't any rules. I don't think it necessarily would be. Perhaps because I don't think we, humans, function without rules. That is, even if there weren't any rules, or they were removed, new ones would evolve. Because we are group animals, belonging together, rules will develop from the interactions of all involved. “…we are taught not to listen. We're taught not to hear what the system that is me is actually signaling.” ~Helena So when (or if) rules are enforced in such a way where I am not taught to listen within, to sync the rules with my own experience/feeling/sensation, what happens then? And how can I implement this in my parenting? Özlem is faced with some uncomfortable tankespjärn more than once during this, our second conversation, and his ability to sit with that discomfort honors him. “So much of parenting is the reactions of the parent. Now, we put it onto the kids, but it is our discomfort. It is our fear. It is our anxiety. It is our beliefs.” ~Helena Me trying to control my firstborn in so many ways –what she wore, how she acted, what she said, how she reacted– was the spark that made me seek out a therapist, because I finally faced the truth of being a different parent than I wanted to be. Writing this, I cringe inwardly because it sounds horrible. Makes me want to hide my face between my hands, or better yet, delete and start over, writing something completely different in this episode description. But owning what I've done, how I've been, as a parent, the good and the bad alike, is my current parenting-project. I am breaking the cycle of blaming and shaming myself for what I've done as a parent, owning it instead. All of it. So there's quite a lot of discomforting tankespjärn for me too in this episode. Perhaps you will find some as well?

The book I recently read and reviewed in our last episode - ‘Finding the Right Hills to Die On' by Gavin Ortlund - has a certain ‘How To Guide to Ecumenism' feel to it throughout. As I think about ecumenism, an awareness dawns on me how much of it has marked my own Christian life as a 35-year-old American. My father was raised Mennonite, my mother attended Pensacola Christian and Bob Jones University. They both met at Cedarville University. In high school, my part-time job was at the Highland County Family YMCA in Hillsboro, Ohio. I also attended the ‘One Way' non-denominational Bible Study. What's more, First Baptist Church of Hillsboro, Ohio - where Lauren and I met, and she grew up, held joint-services with many of the other churches in town, irrespective of denomination, for Christmas Eve every year. Before moving back to Montana in 2012, I occasionally listened to K-Love for years. But come to think of it, pretty much any Contemporary Christian Music is like this. Stripped of most lyrical particulars which might aggravate doctrinal differences between denominations, the mass market appeal is also a kind of ecumenism. After we left FBC, Lauren and I attended Good News Gathering in Hillsboro, Ohio. Though affiliated with Willow Creek on some level, the church nevertheless emphasized sticking to the gospel and being seeker-friendly. I also participated in Kairos Prison Ministry in Southern Ohio once. The volunteers - clergy and laymen - hailed from diverse denominations. The point was to focus on the gospel, and primarily to make converts among residents of correctional institutes and prisons so as to make them Christians without stressing a certain tradition or confusing anyone with in-depth theology and doctrinal concerns. When we moved to Eastern Montana, we attended CMA churches in Glendive, Savage, and Sidney. At the root, the CMA sets aside many historical denominational distinctions in favor of the making disciples of all nations, preaching the gospel all over the world. Besides this, I have encountered more and more in recent years the increasing influence of The Gospel Coalition seemingly everywhere online, with it seeming to be the preferred resource for weblink shares from pastor friends and family members of mine all over the U.S. Yet all of this brings me to a question that came up in reading Gavin Ortlund's 'Finding the Right Hills to Die On' this past week, and in reading so much on theology and church history the past year. The more I study both Church History as well as Modern History, the more unusual, superficial, and disproportionate the ideal of Unity as it's been presented seems in comparison to the level of depth to discussion and debate which seems to have marked the faith and practice of the Church the past two millennia. All over the U.S., the more in-depth the study and subsequent discussion, the harder the pushback seems to be to embrace a kind of latent liberalism which is called humility and peace in the interest of the core gospel message. And yet the more peace and unity with liberalism is stressed, on liberalism's terms, the less recognizable many examples and ideals of the Bible and the historic Reformation feel. Is this just my imagination, or is there a history to the past century of what we call ecumenical that can explain what forces and influences gave rise to this emphasis today on setting aside disagreements as often as possible in favor of ready agreement and a forgoing of more rigorous researching? --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/garrett-ashley-mullet/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/garrett-ashley-mullet/support
“It's like a train. It's going to pick up steam. If you keep at it, the referrals, the ideal clients will come. Do good work and do right by people. You can do it.”It's true what they say about your gifts making room for you: At the tender age of ten, Chip Dizárd received a piece of technology that would change the trajectory of his life.On Christmas Eve 1978, he opened a gift and fell in love with the magic technology could create. His Atari 2600 would open his mind to exploring things and creating memories that last a lifetime.As the years have progressed, so has his gift. Chip has been able to work with schools, churches, and businesses to grow their influence in their local and global communities. Skilled in web development, videography, photography, education, and public speaking Chip has taken his passion for technology and made it his mission to teach others. Our hostess Luci Dumas and Chip chat about finding your ideal client by “eliminating the worst and expanding on the best,” homing in on their interests and tastes, and knowing exactly where to find them. Chip also whittles the art of finding your niche down to three questions: What are you passionate about?, What are you good at?, and What drives your economic engine?Finally, Chip speaks on his mission to promote diversity and inclusion via his personal brand as a wedding photographer, and encourages others in the industry to do the same in their own way.The key to incorporating diversity and inclusion in your business successfully?

Sign of the Man-child Birth and Anointing (Audio) David Eells - 6/15/22 Journey to Kazakhstan Garrett Crawford - 6/10/22 (David's notes in red) I had a very vivid dream that I was inside the continental United States. I started a journey, that took me from the US and into ‘Iran', and lastly my final destination was ‘Kazakhstan'. For some reason Iran and Kazakhstan were actually inside the United States. (Kazakhstan birthed the Khazarians who are our DS Babylon faction which is in US and throughout the World. Iran represents the apostate church system in the US. The Iranians are Semites like the Jews and not Hamites like the Arabs. Their leadership apostasized and factioned against their brothers like the factions in Church and state now. And as we will see, within Kazakhstan, is the Bride that the Man-child is to be born out of. In a Dream Garrett had back in 2020, there was a virgin girl in Kazakhstan who was about to give birth to the Man-child. The Khazarians became a nomadic people and have been a criminal entity many times called the DS. To be born in Kazakhstan is to be born from Babylon as Zerubbabel, was a type of the Man-child whose name means, “Born from Babylon.") In the dream, Iran was a place where many of my unsaved childhood friends lived and had assimilated into the native culture there. (The unsaved childhood friends represent factions in apostate Christianity because they are spiritually stunted in their growth. 1 Co 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child: now that I am become a man, I have put away childish things.) I realized it was very dangerous for me to be there. (Because of their faction. Worldly Christianity is factioned and cannot see one another's points of view.) I was not sure why I really needed to go to Kazakhstan in the dream. The dream ended with me leaving Iran and making my way to Kazakhstan. (Kazakhstan representing Babylon DS is a dangerous place because of their depopulation agenda.) There was a little house that I saw in a vision that I was to go to. When I woke up I remembered this dream and words from 2020… (The little house is the House of the David Man-child reformers that is being rebuilt.) The Lord Induces Labor of the Man-child Garrett Crawford - 5/25/20 (David's notes in red) In this dream I was walking up to a large coliseum. (A coliseum is a place of larger and larger circles of people representing an exponential revelation being passed on.) It was a large venue and an event was going to happen inside. I remember I was quite early for the show; they were not letting anyone in just yet. As I was in front of the coliseum, I saw David Eells walking over to me. I could not believe he was there too. It was a pleasant surprise. We had a brief conversation and as we were talking we saw a group of protesters across the street making some commotion. They kind of caught my attention but David told me not to pay them any mind. (The factious apostates in the Church and state protest and fight against the Man-child and the Bride and against God Himself.) I walked away from David and then walked back up near the coliseum and saw a man standing behind a table... But he had a lot of materials on his table and he was giving them out. Although he doesn't really exist in real life in the dream, He was David's right hand man, and assistant pastor. (He is not a physical individual person but a representation of many pastors who pass on the Man-child's wisdom and knowledge.) ... I was quite familiar with the assistant. (And we are with many of them) He was very happy to see me and I him. We talked for a while and he had great news to tell me. (The good news of the Gospel that sets people free is always great news.) He said, "UBM has an orphanage or mission in Kazakhstan and the surrounding area. God is doing many mighty works there." (Yes He is. Kazakhstan is a land that had been conquered by the mongols but was later set free. The Mongols were a fierce and vicious people who regarded not the lives of others and were factious against all, very much like the D-S which has also conquered many lands that are now being set free. UBM does have an orphanage and mission in other countries. The pastors hand out UBM materials in the midst of peoples who are just like the vicious factious protesters mentioned above. We can't mention these people specifically for now because the faction has already tried to spiritually kill them.) He told me the Man-child is about to be birthed and they know the young girl in whom He is coming. She was a poor virgin girl in the Church (Among the factious peoples) there in Kazakstan and she is with child. (Rev 14:1-5 And I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on the mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty and four thousand, having his name, and the name of his Father, written on their foreheads. … 3 and they sing as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures and the elders: and no man could learn the song save the hundred and forty and four thousand, even they that had been purchased out of the earth. 4 These are they that were not defiled with women (factions); for they are virgins. These are they that follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were purchased from among men, to be the firstfruits unto God and unto the Lamb. 5 And in their mouth was found no lie: they are without blemish.) He said they have seen the sign that He was ready to be birthed. I said "But it's too soon!" He said "No, He is coming and we have seen the sign!” (We have been shown that the Man-child is coming sooner than many believe; He will come early.) (Mat 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not on what day your Lord cometh.) As he was explaining all this to me in greater detail, I had a vision of the womb of the young girl and I could see the fetus of the Man-child. It was a supernatural fetus, translucent and luminous... It was not a normal flesh and blood fetus but a supernatural one. (A spiritual virgin birth. Jesus said He is coming again in the Man-child, and that by Word and Spirit. Joh 16:21-22 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but when she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for the joy that a man is born into the world. 22 And ye therefore now have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one taketh away from you.) As he continued speaking my vision continued: I saw a hand stick what appeared to be a hooked rod like a tiny little shepherd's rod inside the womb of the mother. (David received the heart of a shepherd defending the sheep from the lion and bear before he was birthed as the anointed Man-child King.) The rod was meant to induce labor, I saw the little rod scrape against the umbilical cord and at that very moment the little fetus made a quick reaction and assumed the position of a woman who was about to give birth. He was mimicking a woman in her labor position, knees up and legs open. It reminded me when a drill sergeant gives a command to a disciplined soldier and he stands at attention immediately. This little fetus reacted just as fast to the command. I was very impressed with the little guy. He was so little, not even a full grown baby yet but had an intelligence that was beyond his age. When I saw this vision I had trouble comprehending how such a small fetus was ready to be birthed, but labor was being induced and he was coming out regardless. (We have had many dreams of the Man-child being birthed and maturing very rapidly; even walking and talking right after birth. However this Man-child is maturing rapidly even in the womb as we will see.) (I feel like we have to be prepared that the Man-child will come sooner than we think or what he has planned for. Usually, a baby is born at 9 months but this baby was only about 5 or 6 months gestation.) Christmas, the Man-child is Coming! David Eells - 6/7/22 On 6/7/22 I went out to sit on the porch and saw a pine tree lit up with lights that flickered on and off as droplets of water on the tree were reflecting the sun that was at just the right angle. It was beautiful and very surprising. I said, "Christmas, the Man-child is coming.” (In the natural, the holiday of Christmas has nothing to do with Jesus since it is actually the celebration of the birth of Tammuz. But the Lord will often use Christmas in dreams to represent the coming of the Man-child in our day since people relate Christmas to the birth of Jesus.) I thought, “If Michael would hurry back, I would have a witness because some wouldn't believe this.” Even though I thought God was using a natural phenomenon. I took a picture but the lights didn't show up. Michael did come back and I showed it to him and he saw it and tried to use his phone camera but it wouldn't pick up the tiny lights even though they were very bright. I said to him, "Christmas, the Man-child is coming”. He thought it was very surprising too. Then I received the next two revelations right after... Christmas Tree with a Dove Vanessa Weeks - 6/6/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamed that I was in our living room and I saw a small Christmas tree in the corner. I went over to it and saw that there were several ornaments on it. ( Eze 17:22-23 Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: I will also take of the lofty top of the cedar, and will set it; I will crop off from the topmost of its young twigs a tender one, and I will plant it upon a high and lofty mountain: 23 in the mountain of the height of Israel will I plant it; and it shall bring forth boughs, and bear fruit, and be a goodly cedar: and under it shall dwell all birds of every wing; in the shade of the branches thereof shall they dwell. This is speaking of the Man-child reformers represented by the topmost young twigs of the cedar tree.) I was amazed to see it, and I thought, "Why is this tree here? We don't celebrate Christmas, and Christmas was months ago." (I think this points to the birth of the Man-child ministry rather than the pagan holiday. The branches made me think of Isa 11:1-4 And there shall come forth a shoot out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots shall bear fruit. And the Spirit of Jehovah shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Jehovah. 3 And his delight shall be in the fear of Jehovah; and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither decide after the hearing of his ears; 4 but with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth; and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth; and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.) (Some mistake this for Jesus' first coming but Jesus didn't slay the wicked. It is when He returns in the Man-child that He will judge and slay the wicked. A friend had a dream that this was speaking of the David/ Man-childs.) All the ornaments were white on this very green tree, but the only one I remember was a large white dove, on a branch toward the top of the tree. (Representing the latter rain anointing of the Holy Spirit upon the Man-child reformers.) Mar 1:9 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in the Jordan. 10 And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens rent asunder, and the Spirit as a dove descending upon him: 11 and a voice came out of the heavens, Thou art my beloved Son, in thee I am well pleased. (And, as we saw, Jesus is coming again as a Man-child in John 16.) I thought of this dream when David talked about the evergreen tree (which represents eternal life.) and Winnie's dream of Christmas. Christmas Eve/What is Coming Winnie Osegueda - 6/8/22 (David's notes in red) ... I prayed and asked the Lord to show me what was coming and when I fell asleep He gave me the following dream: I dreamt that I was in a very nice suburban area and it was the evening time of Christmas Eve. (Wow Christmas again! Another confirmation that the baby boy Man-child is coming.) I could see all the houses decorated with colorful Christmas lights throughout this neighborhood on my left. My mother's house was also located on the left side of this suburban neighborhood. (Winnie's mom is being used to represent the apostate church that all of God's elect are born out of. Many apostates are in idolatry with the world and its traditions of men represented by the celebration of Christmas which is a pagan holiday. There is a connection between the modern day Christmas tree and the ancient symbol for the fertility goddess named Asherah Jer. 10:1-5 Hear ye the word which Jehovah speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: 2 thus saith Jehovah, Learn not the way of the nations, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the nations are dismayed at them. 3 For the customs of the peoples are vanity; for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman with the axe. 4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. 5 They are like a palm-tree, of turned work, and speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither is it in them to do good.) There was a remake of an older movie being made except it wasn't actually a movie; it was really happening. Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. 10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. I recognized and remembered this old movie that they were remaking and it was starring Kiefer Sutherland (... Keifer Sutherland is an actor who played a great villain in movies in the 80s and 90s, and he was a villain in the movie in this dream as well). (The meaning of the name “Keifer” is a German nick name for someone who was quarrelsome, from an agent of Middle High German kiben, kiven 'to quarrel'. All of the factious are quarrelsome.) They brought in a new "actor" for the remake of this movie who looked just like a younger, rounder-faced version of Kiefer Sutherland. His haircut was like the one Kiefer Sutherland had in the movie "The Lost Boys," a film in which he played a vampire. ("The life of the flesh is in the blood." The spiritual vampires of the apostate churches who are “lost” children who “bite and devour” and suck the life out of people with their contentious and slanderous ways.) Because I had already seen and knew this movie very well, I knew that this Kiefer Sutherland look-alike had a plan to enter into each suburban home in this neighborhood and kill every family. I could see him lurking in the shadows of his brick house spying on the neighborhood through his window on the top floor. (Their leaders are stalkers and “peeping Tom's”.) These families were not suspicious, as he made himself appear to be trustworthy and friendly… (Rom 16:17-18 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them that are causing the divisions and occasions of stumbling, contrary to the doctrine which ye learned: and turn away from them. 18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Christ, but their own belly; and by their smooth and fair speech they beguile the hearts of the innocent. Remember, they are actors.) I was now inside my mother's home... and this new "actor" was there as well. He handed my mother a box of Marlboro Red cigarettes and she accepted them. (She actually smoked these in real life when I was much younger.) As soon as this actor walked off, I said "NO! NO! Why did you accept them?! Now you're marked!" and she said "I like Marlboro Reds, so if he gives me Marlboro Reds, I'm going to take them.” (The cigarettes represent receiving bad and false spirits.) (Breath and spirit are the same word and taking in smoke represents taking in an unclean spirit. If you receive slander from a factious person, you will receive that same spirits.) She seemed to be very bothered by my objections to her receiving these cigarettes, but I knew how this movie was going to play out, so I was desperately trying to warn her to no avail. (Many in apostasy aren't heeding our warnings currently. They will have to experience judgment before they turn back to righteousness, and still, many won't repent of their wickedness and they will be killed spiritually with an eternal death.) At this point, I knew that this actor was going to come back and kill her because she was marked, and that I had to go. I couldn't stay with her there, or I would be killed as well, as much as it pained me to know what was going to happen. I didn't understand why no one else could see what was happening here. Since this movie was a remake of an old film, it should have been obvious what was going on, but it wasn't to them. (I know people who have seen this happen to others fall into the trap because of disobedience. John 12:37-40 But though he had done so many signs before them, yet they believed not on him: 38 that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? And to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed? 39 For this cause they could not believe, for that Isaiah said again, 40 He hath blinded their eyes, and he hardened their heart; Lest they should see with their eyes, and perceive with their heart, And should turn, And I should heal them.) I left this suburban area to find an escape and I entered into the city. I stopped by a clothing store that I used to go to when I was younger. (We should not shrink back represented by visiting the younger clothing store. Heb. 10:39 But we are not of them that shrink back unto perdition; but of them that have faith unto the saving of the soul.) I recognized one of the women that worked there in the dream, but not in real life. She was an overweight black lady with a fake ponytail. (This represents people who are walking in darkness; who feed the flesh.) She met me outside with a hug and said "Merry Christmas!" I said Merry Christmas as well ... (I don't personally celebrate Christmas, but I believe the Lord is just using this as a parable.) (A parable of judgment on the apostates at the time of the Man-child's birth.) I noticed that I had a large overweight, gray, striped cat with me and it walked into the store. The cat wanted to stay behind and I agreed that it was best, because I could not escape what was happening with this cat tagging along. (The fat cat represents an abundance of flesh, self will and rebellion. These people will not escape the faction demons because they must be separated from the Bride and ultimately the body itself.) I thought about the verse Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore let us also, seeing we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising shame, and hath sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.) (We must leave the weight of our rebellious sin nature behind, represented by the fat, grey cat, if we want to escape the judgment of faction that is coming.) The lady in the store agreed that the cat could remain there in the store, but again, I was sad because I knew what was coming and that they would not be safe if they did not escape. This "actor" would come and kill them too, including the cat. (Psa 37:38 As for transgressors, (or “rebellious”) they shall be destroyed together; The end of the wicked shall be cut off. And 2Pe 2:12 But these, as creatures without reason, born mere animals to be taken and destroyed, railing in matters whereof they are ignorant, shall in their destroying surely be destroyed.) I left the store and continued up a flight of stairs to leave this area as well, and then I woke up. The dream felt so real that when I woke up I felt like this was still happening, and I was trying to figure out what movie this was that they were trying to remake. (The people who don't learn from His-story are doomed to repeat it.) I asked the Lord for a verse by faith at random and received: Joel 2:19 (15-20 in context) Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly; 16 gather the people, sanctify the assembly, assemble the old men, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts; let the bridegroom go forth from his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. (Notice: At the time of the attempted attack on the Bride she and the Man-child will be revealed and delivered.) 17 Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O Lord, and give not thy heritage to reproach, that the nations should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the peoples, Where is their God? 18 Then was the Lord jealous for his land, and had pity on his people. 19 And the Lord answered and said unto his people, Behold, I will send you grain, and new wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith; and I will no more make you a reproach among the nations; 20 but I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive it into a land barren and desolate, its forepart into the eastern sea, and its hinder part into the western sea; and its stench shall come up, and its ill savor shall come up, because it hath done great things. (The northern army is like Pharoah's army at the Red Sea. It is the end of the persecutors and the beginning of the wilderness tribulation.) Come up Here Vanessa Weeks - 6/10/22 (David's notes in red) As I was praying in the Spirit on 6/10/22 I saw a staircase going up to heaven, and a man, which I saw from the back, was walking up it and I heard, "Come up here.” (The Man-child reformers will be caught up to the Throne of authority soon to bring God's people through the wilderness tribulation.) Rev 4:1 After these things I saw, and behold, a door opened in heaven, and the first voice that I heard, a voice as of a trumpet speaking with me, one saying, Come up here and I will show thee the things which must come to pass hereafter. (The tribulation.) Joh 1:51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye shall see the heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man. Pro 25:6 Put not thyself forward in the presence of the king, And stand not in the place of great men: 7 For better is it that it be said unto thee, Come up hither, Than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince, Whom thine eyes have seen. I believe the Lord is giving us a picture of the soon anointing of the Man-Child! Thank you Father. Vision of Bride Chosen at the Throne Claire Pienaar - 5/25/22 (David's notes in red) I had a quick vision of myself in front of Jesus' throne. I was bigger than I am in real life, as was the throne and the setting. (I believe this “larger than life” presentation of myself in the dream denotes the corporate body of the Bride). There was a very good looking and well-dressed man walking all around me and sizing me up. He reminded me of a very well-known fashion designer who can, just by looking at his models, make clothing that fits them perfectly. (This man represents satan, the accuser of the brethren, who always tries to get the Bride to put on garments of filth or unrighteousness.) I had a veil over my head, but not my face. I was glowing. Jesus put out his hand to me and said, “I choose you”. Then I started telling this man to stop. I did not speak, but I was rebuking this man's words and actions in my mind. (Rev. 12:10-11 And I heard a great voice in heaven, saying, Now is come the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, who accuseth them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life even unto death. And James 4:7 Be subject therefore unto God; but resist the devil, and he will flee from you.) The man who was sizing me up could not dress me up the way he wanted and I began glowing even more. (Rev. 19:7-8 Let us rejoice and be exceeding glad, and let us give the glory unto him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And it was given unto her that she should array herself in fine linen, bright and pure: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.) Jesus turned to say something to Father, but I could not hear it. As I reached out to touch Jesus' hand, similar to how Esther waited for Ahasuerus to hold out the golden sceptre, I woke up.

Christmas Eve, 1945 was a night that changed the Sodder family forever. Sometime after 1 AM, a fire broke out on the first floor of their Fayetteville, West Virginia home. George and Jennie Sodder were able to get their four kids, sleeping on the first floor, out of the house safely. However, the fire spread so quickly that George could not get up to the five kids sleeping on the second floor The investigation into the fire said the fire was caused by faulty wire and the five Sodder children died. This is where the story gets interesting. No remains of the children were ever found in the burnt rubble. George and Jennie Sodder were convinced their children did not die in the fire. If they didn't pass away in the fire, what happened to them? This is the question Phil and Travis will cover.

It is a point of pride that most of their podcast episodes are longer than the movies they cover.David Michor grew up in a video store and knew right away that he wanted to be a filmmaker. He started making movies when he picked up a video camera at just 7 years old, and he hasn't stopped ever since. David attended film school at Columbia College Chicago and majored in Directing. For his final semester, he was chosen out of a large pool of applicants to attend the Semester in LA Program. Studying on the CBS Radford Lot, he honed his craft and got a job in the mail room. This eventually led to a writer's assistant position on the WB sitcom, “The Help,” working directly for the show's creator, Ron Leavitt, who also created “Married with Children” and “Unhappily Ever After.” David went on to write and direct several short films that premiered at the Columbia College Film Festival held at Sundance, including “H1N1” about a zombie apocalypse, “Snooze, Charlie” about an addiction to the snooze button, and “The Hoarder” about a demonic lamp that attacks its possessor. David is currently developing his feature directorial debut and resides in Los Angeles as a writer, director, and editor. In the meantime, you can catch his cinematic TikToks starring his baby and his dog at @albertsbucketlist.
In the third hour, Danny Parkins and Matt Spiegel were joined by Kim Coates, most famously of "Sons of Anarchy" fame but more IMPORTANTLY good friends with our buddy Bill Fichtner. He's going to help us get Bill here for the Bills-Bears game on Christmas Eve. Later, Parkins shared a bizarre athlete comparison for Warriors guard Steph Curry.
Today flying is one of the safest forms of transit that exists. Out of the millions of flights every year, only about 30 of those result in an accident in the US, and very few result in any serious injury. However, this hasn't always been the case. In recent history, regulations on air travel were much laxer and allowed for a far greater rate of failure. On Christmas Eve 1971, Juliane Koepcke witnessed how dangerous air travel can be when her plane broke apart in mid-air and plummeted 10,000 feet into the Amazon rain forest. Defying all odds, Koepcke survived the fall. Unfortunately for Juliane, it was an out-of-the-frying pan into the fryer sort of a situation. She awoke after the crash to find herself stranded in the heart of the Amazon rainforest. Her story has inspired for decades.

Government contracts aren't for the faint of heart. Rick Lamb, marketing manager with Frank's Supply in Albuquerque, NM, understands the arduous truth of that statement better than most. Jason chats with Rick about the complexities inherent to General Services Administration (GSA) certification and why it might make sense for other suppliers to jump through those hoops. When Frank's found itself in a position to bid for its first government contract in 1996 for Los Alamos National Lab, Rick found himself in the thick of it. “We had never even attempted something like that,” he says, but two Frank's employees who knew just enough about GSAs to convince the company to put together a bid. Nine months later, Frank's phone rang. “It was Christmas Eve, 1996. We get a call from the head of purchasing at Los Alamos, and they go, ‘Be ready to start the contract April 1st.'” Frank's first scramble was on. While the bid timeline has shortened somewhat since the mid-90s, other aspects, like authentication and security clearance, have grown increasingly rigorous. Vendors must detail every level of the contract's implementation, from the level of support to chain of responsibility to security clearances and quality assurance programs, But is the GSA route profitable?

Welcome to another episode of the Plutus Awards Podcast. Our community is filled with hundreds of stories from creators and entrepreneurs just like you. And through this show we share these stories of challenges and successes from bloggers to podcasters from writers, speakers and more. In today's episode I share how and why I decided to monetize my personal finance brand. It wasn't an easy decision and for those of you making the decision my monetization story will highlight the fears and concerns I had about the process leading with the following question that I needed to answer “Will monetizing my brand impact the authenticity, brand mission and purpose of my project and negatively impact the community that I serve with my content?” In the first episode of this season I spoke with Harlan Landes, founder of the Plutus Awards, Plutus Foundation and Plutus Voices events. It's a great conversation about the evolution of the Plutus ecosystem and what motivates Harlan to do the work that he does. The main question that the Plutus Foundation will be exploring this season is the tension that content creators in the personal finance space feel when deciding whether or not to monetize their brand. I absolutely felt this tension and nervousness at the time that I decided to monetize my brand partly because I had to ask myself if I was being inauthentic, greedy or disingenuous as a person in the personal finance space. I thought it would be interesting to share what I thought about, what I was afraid of and how and why I ultimately decided to say “yes” to making money as a personal content creator. The Beginning I started blogging about money in 2012 and honestly, what I put out for the first couple of years was messy. I started with Blogger, a free blogging platform until eventually I decided that I liked blogging enough to tackle using Wordpress. I'll never forget sitting in Eric Rosenberg's apartment in Denver wanting to use his turntables on Christmas Eve and hanging out with his girlfriend who would become his wife as he transferred my website to Wordpress. Something that I couldn't afford to pay for at the time. I wasn't a prolific blogger, but I was passionate about the space, the community and the content that I was putting out there and my hope was that if I could help at least one person by sharing my story-I'd made a difference. 2012 soon became 2013, 2014, and then 2017 arrived. It was around that time that I was really having some deep private conversations with myself about the value of my time vs. what I was putting out. I still had debt that I was paying off, I had made the leap into self-employment and was navigating what I enjoyed doing as an entrepreneur and I was increasingly asking myself the following question “Does it make sense for someone in the personal finance space to say “no” to money…especially when they needed it? They… meaning me. And the other question that I literally spent years working through is how can I make money, still be authentic and still advocate for the financial changes and empowerment tha
