CBS News discovers a new, dangerous conspiracy theory and ABC News does the “mostly peaceful riot” meme. Yeah, how could people ever harbor such bizarre and dangerous thoughts about the WEF? I hope John Kerry will set them straight!https://twitter.com/RNCResearch/status/1615395129606406155?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1615395129606406155%7Ctwgr%5E870148308d6a1cc63c337288469744ae19af58f3%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.powerlineblog.com%2Farchives%2F2023%2F01%2Feverybody-wants-to-rule-the-world.phpIf not Captain Ketchup, perhaps Klaus himself! https://twitter.com/TPostMillennial/status/1616441180291584001At least there were no “peaceful riots” in Davos . . .https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1617020906504609792How can journalists not see what is plainly a fact? So many factors play into this, I contend the core of it is Spiritual Blindness, they have removed themselves from The Source of Truth. There is also this, though, the dumbing-down of American college students. The IQ of the current class of college graduates today is what the IQ of high school graduates were in the 60's! That dynamic makes it easier for people to write pieces in the Politico where they pretend that the Lizzie Warren established Consumer Fraud Protection Bureau--designed to operate with NO control by Congress, to even their budget and NO control by the Executive branch--is “our financial system.” What does God say?The Lord Jesus Himself told us that He needed God The Father!John 5:19“Jesus gave them this answer: ‘Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.'”How much more do we need God?

The Unchanging Word with Dr. John G. Mitchell continues in the Gospel of John chapter 17. We will be looking at verses 18-23 in this lesson. Once again, Dr. Mitchell brings out the great importance of the Word of God in a person's life. One major difference between the believer and the world is the Word of God. The believer is in the Word of God and reads it daily, while the world does not. Reading the Word of God sanctifies the believer to God from out of the world just as the Father sanctified Jesus and sent Him into the world. Dr. Mitchell emphasizes how the believer is qualified and sent on a mission just as Jesus had been sent on a mission. Turn with us to John 17 verse 18 as Dr. Mitchell speaks of unity in the body of Christ. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/unchanging-word/message

Aided by supernatural signs and wonders, he will help usher in an era of death, destruction, and devastation the likes of which the world has never seen. The false, deceptive system he represents is already in place--enjoyed by the deceived faithful every week. And that system is destined to grow in power and influence until it impacts the lives of every human being on the globe. Who is this man?

Comes now the great year 2023, yet another year which the Lord God has made.  You and I are alive, with the wonderful opportunities, challenges which this new year offers. The issues for Christians and American Patriots have never been greater. The demands of citizenship, this world and HIS world are clear, challenging, requiring the strong response of real men and women.  YOU are called upon as never before to be a Patriot in the fight for America and a Soldier of the cross of Jesus Christ this year with all your might now more than ever. Always remember, my fellow Christians, that YOU are unique. You are one of a kind, made for a special purpose by GOD THE FATHER. You have been called, challenged by HIM, sent into the great year 2023 on a special mission, a mission only you can accomplish. You should feel the strength of that calling, believe, with the guidance and help of the Holy Spirit that you can and you will, and be glad and rejoice therein. YOU are as special in the eyes of God as anyone. Whoever you are, whatever you do, do what you need to do as God leads with all your might. Stand tall for the gospel. Let your light so shine before all mankind so that they may see your great works and glorify OUR FATHER in heaven. Witness with words and deeds. Some are called to preach, testify and others by works, by life, by love. The life you live is more important than the words you speak. PREACH THE GOSPEL AND IF NECESSARY USE WORDS, so said Saint Francis of Assisi. A loving life is more important than even the wisest words. WORK and work hard. Whatever your hand finds to do, whatever God calls you to do, do it with all your might. Work for the night is coming when no man or woman can work. Work knowing that a workperson is worthy of his or her hire and that your work will be rewarded by mankind and by Him. You are given certain talents, every human being different. Know them and use them the very best you can.  STUDY to show yourself approved unto God and mankind so that you will never be ashamed of the gospel knowing its power and truth, and with the help of the Holy Spirit, understand the truth and the power of the gospel so that you can live it with all your might. Beware of false teachers. They abound, as Paul and our Lord so rightly said in the last days. If these are in fact those last days, make every one count now more than ever. Beware of false Christianity, WOKE and progressive Christianity which adds to the simple and stand – alone concepts of grace and faith. Never forget that by grace or you and I saved, NOT OF WORKS but less any man or woman should boast.  PRAY, thankful in all things to GOD THE FATHER, ALL THINGS good or bad. God provides what we need whether we like it or not. Thank God for THE SON and the salvation HE brings. Pray for our leaders. Pray for our enemies. Pray for family and friends. And pray with all your might for:             YOU Ask and you will receive, in due course, at the right time and in accordance with the WILL of God. Wait patiently for that answer. PRAY WITHOUT CEASING! And in private (in the closet). There is nothing more powerful than prayer. FORGET those things which are behind. FORGET where you failed. Forget your mistakes, the sin of before. It is gone, all of it, WASHED in the blood of the lamb. Nothing harms anyone more than GUILT. Guilt renders one impotent, weak, living in the past. Press on, says the Apostle Paul, PRESS ON! Get on with your life and never, ever let the past CLOUD the present and the future, NEVER! FORGETTING becauseyou are forgiven, not only washed but a continual washing by the loving blood of the lamb. What glorious thoughts to guide all of us in the great new year. GOALS AND OBJECTIVES, set them. Set goals for your life spiritually, financially, lovingly. Set the goal to grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Press on and strive for those goals. ENDURE, do whatever it takes to reach those goals. Carry with you the words of Sir Winston Churchill, who so well said:             NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP!  The reward comes to those who never quit, press on and ENDURE the wiles of the devil.  GIVE. Tithe and more. Give, says scripture to anyone who asks, who needs, where that gift will be used to better the life. Be ready to lay all on the altar. And more than money. Give, tithe and offer to the Lord your time, the really most valuable thing you have, more than money. Give work to others and charities. Give expertise as you have it for worthy causes and the Church of Jesus Christ. Give from the heart, knowing that the act of giving itself is its own reward.  HAPPY NEW YEAR! Joyfully celebrate the coming of the grand year 2023. Be blessed and enjoy every minute of this God given precious time. Live it well and most importantly, live it with all of your might for:             GOD (JESUS CHRIST) AND COUNTRY.

Doctrine of the Incarnation of Christ - Christmas Special 2022

BIBLE IN TEN

Play Episode Listen Later Dec 23, 2022 25:26


Sunday 25th December 2022   Exploring topological typologies of Christ's Incarnation at Christmas!   Rivers of Tears Flow from My Eyes Because They Will Not Keep Your Word    Psalm 119:136   The Doctrine (or teaching) of Salvation is revealed clearly within the Bible but it is also legitimate to find revelation of it through the Creation, confirmed by the opening chapter of Romans verse 16 to 21:   16 I am not ashamed of the Good News. It is the power God uses to save everyone who believes—to save the Jews first, and then to save the non-Jews. 17 The Good News shows how God makes people right with himself. God's way of making people right with him begins and ends with faith. As the Scripture says, “The person who is made right with God by faith will live forever.”   Faith means believing in something unseen, in the Bible it has the same word meaning as believe or trust.   18 God's anger is shown from heaven against all the evil and wrong things that people do. By their own evil lives they hide the truth. 19 God shows his anger because everything that may be known about God has been made clear. Yes, God has clearly shown them everything that may be known about him. 20 There are things about God that people cannot see—his eternal power and all the things that make him God. But since the beginning of the world those things have been easy to understand. They are made clear by what God has made. So people have no excuse for the bad things they do. 21    Thus the Word of God tells us that God has clearly shown us everything that may be known about him within the Word and without.   There are things about God that people cannot see,  but since the beginning of the world those things have been easy to understand.  They are made clear by what God has made.   The Bible teaches that God has made the world and everything in it, in such a way as to reveal things about Him.  God has created the world and done so like an artist or sculpture would do, leaving his signature or fingerprints on it for us to clearly see.     In this episode, we will look at how the mountains, rivers and seas in the Jordan Valley provide some fascinating pictures which glorify God and support teachings found throughout His Word.    Many thanks to Charlie Garrett whose analysis was the spark to light this work and further insight provided by other contributors to the body of Christ at the Superior Word church whilst studying the book of Joshua.  Thanks to Nikki Higgins for her fellowship and love including thoughtful discussion on the apologetic aspects of this presentation.  Thanks to Elsa Higgins for her observation about the Pre Tribulation rapture pictured by clouds that form before falling as rain on the Mount of Olives.   Thanks to Samuel Higgins for finding the Jordan River in Job 40.    Thanks to Joel Higgins for drawing my attention to the brother who was dead but now is alive.   Thanks to Grace Higgins for her love of the Rivers of Tears song we made up to soothe her when she was crying.   Thanks most of all to the Lord Jesus for guiding me through this study and comforting me with the two passages from 2nd Kings on the 8th Dec 22 when I found out the news of my brother's passing.   2 Kings 5:14 Elisha sent a messenger to Naaman. The messenger said, “Go and wash in the Jordan River seven times. Then your skin will be healed, and you will be clean.” The Doctrine of the Incarnation of Jesus our Saviour      The Christmas story.  The virgin born Saviour who took on flesh in order to live a perfect life which qualified as sacrificial atonement to be made as payment for the sins of all mankind.      “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son. God gave his Son so that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life. 17 God did not send his Son into the world to judge the world guilty, but to save the world through him. 18 He who believes in God's Son is not judged guilty. He who does not believe has already been judged guilty, because he has not believed in God's only Son.    (John 3:16-19)   It is marvellous that this is illustrated through the Jordan River!   From the origination at Mount Hermon to the termination at the Dead Sea, God has provided a stunning picture to support the Bible narrative of Jesus coming down from Heaven, setting aside his divine attribute to Earth, Dying on the Cross for our sins, being buried and Rising again according to the Scriptures (1 Cor 15:3-4).   Please seek to glorify the Lord in your heart as you follow these ten steps and praise our Lord, the Creator God !   “One that descends”.    The name "Jordan" means "descender."   Its name comes from the root ‘YARAD,' to descend.      Paul writes in Philippians 2:   “Christ himself was like God in everything. He was equal with God. But he did not think that being equal with God was something to be held on to. He gave up his place with God and made himself nothing. He was born as a man and became like a servant. And when he was living as a man, he humbled himself and was fully obedient to God. He obeyed even when that caused his death—death on a cross. So God raised Christ to the highest place. God made the name of Christ greater than every other name. God wants every knee to bow to Jesus— everyone in heaven, on earth, and under the earth. Everyone will say, “Jesus Christ is Lord” and bring glory to God the Father.    (Philippians 2:5-11)   The name of the majestic mountain which is the source for the Jordan River is Mount Hermon .  in the (Hebrew it is Chermon Phonetic Spelling: (kher-mone')  "sacred (mountain)"     In one place it is called Chermonim (Psalm 42:6) using the Hebrew plural ending as seen in the word Elohim which means God but has a plurality distinct from El.     Mount Hermon has three roughly equal sized summits, situated like the angles of a triangle, and equidistant about a quarter of a mile from each other. Hopefully you can imagine how this symbolises the Holy Trinity - three equal persons of God sharing one essence.   God The Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.      It is on this mountain that the scholars at Bible.org believe the transfiguration event occurred.  The transfiguration is a biblical event that appears in each of the Gospel books as an important moment in the life of Jesus and evidence of his divinity. After Jesus performs a series of miracles and foretells His own death, Jesus leads exactly three of his disciples, to Hermon and his appearance was radiantly transformed.     In Mark Chapter 9 we read: While these followers watched, Jesus was changed. 3 His clothes became shining white, whiter than any person could make them. 4 Then two men appeared, talking with Jesus. The men were Moses and Elijah  (Mark 9:3-4)    Then a cloud came and covered them. A voice came from the cloud. The voice said, “This is my Son, and I love him. Obey him!”    (Mark 9:7)    Jesus revealed his divine being.   Some rivers begin in mountains or hills, where rain water or snowmelt collects and forms small channels.   Some rivers begin where a natural spring releases water from underground. The Jordan River has three principal sources, all of which rise at the foot of Mount Hermon.  As the water springs up having descended from the holy place,  a picture of the virgin birth of Christ can be imagined. Isaiah 12:3 “With joy you will draw water from the springs of salvation.” As the river flows into Galilee the river path is quite ordinary picturing the humble early life of Jesus - Can anything good come from Nazareth?  This changes once the river reaches the sea of Galilee - picturing the extraordinary life which is revealed during his ministry which begins with miracles and teaching around this very place.     The change to a zigzag pattern after the Jordan leaves Galilee pictures Jesus' teaching and miracles across Israel.     The Jordan river zigzags at least 153 miles, although if one is precise one can measure a river bed distance up to infinity - picturing the divine essence of Jesus.   Jesus is God and  Jesus is man.   The God/Man Jesus Died for Our Sins - this is pictured by water entering the Salt Sea or Dead Sea which cannot support life -     Fish carried in by the Jordan die quickly  - the salt content is way too high for life, being ten times more than the average level of salt in the sea. Salt has a cleansing property.  The sins of the believers are washed away by the shedding of Jesus' blood.   Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins. Jesus was Buried (The lowest point on Earth in terms of dry land is the shore of the Dead Sea)   The days between Jesus death and resurrection where the lowest point in the lives of his friends. 39 Nicodemus went with Joseph. Nicodemus was the man who earlier had come to Jesus at night. He brought about 75 pounds of spices. This was a mixture of myrrh and aloes. 40 These two men took Jesus' body and wrapped it with the spices in pieces of linen cloth. (This is how the Jews bury people.)     John 19:39-42   International Children's Bible   Just as Jesus' body was encased in valuable minerals as it was buried so too the water arriving in the dead sea is sitting above a treasure trove of minerals.   Most Valuable Piece of Land on Earth ( approx 5 trillion dollar ($5,000,000,000,000) chemical and mineral wealth is deposited at  Dead Sea ).   This vast value in some small way pictures the infinite price paid for the sins of potentially all people in the world.      Interesting fact!  The Dead Sea is known for its unique climate and the area has approx 330, (or 33 times 10) sunny days a year and Jesus' earthly life was 33 years!      Jesus Rose again  -  Water in the Salt Sea evaporates and this pictures the resurrection.  Evaporation is the process by which a liquid turns into a gas. It is also one of the three main steps in the water cycle.    It can be easily visualised when rain puddles “disappear” on a hot day or when wet clothes dry in the sun. In these examples, the liquid water is not actually vanishing—it is evaporating into a gas, called water vapour. A river crosses two lands, picturing Heaven and Hell.  The Children of Israel had to cross the Jordan River to enter the promised land (amazingly Charlie deduced that this was on the very same day of the first Passover (which in itself pictures Jesus' innocent personal sacrifice on the cross to pay for our sins and overcome death).   This pictures our need to exercise faith in the Lord Jesus Christ's Sacrifice to escape the wilderness / Hell and enter The Promised Land / Heaven  The very stones and rivers bear testimony, to that invisible yet wonderful reality. The water descends so profoundly, picturing an all encompassing sanctity.   The Jordan River springs up at the foot of Hermon, continuing plainly until it reaches the Galilee.     Until His teaching ministry has yet begun, Jesus' life appears to be quite ordinary.    Now the river leaves Galilee,  its journey zigzags much more. Spreading across Israel teaching about the Door, The Father is revealed for everyone to see!   The Jordan River is where Jesus was baptised.  A voice from Heaven cried out “this is my beloved!” Yes the Father spoke! “this is My Son in whom I am well pleased” The Holy Spirit descended on Jesus, His ministry was started.       Now when he was at the age of thirty, Miracles abound around the Sea of Galilee. The lame walk, the blind see and the dead are no longer affected Jesus's offer to Israel of the Kingdom is rejected.   Jesus's first advent and the Jordan River end unexpectedly. Instead of the river making its way to the ocean  The water meanders into the Salt or Dead Sea. God has produced an amazing topography!    Water in the sea evaporates under the 330 days of annual sun. Leaving behind the minerals and salt, which make swimming in it such fun! Salt has a cleansing property - a metaphor for the believers sins,  washed away by the shedding of Jesus' blood, for the remission of our sins.   Jesus left the Jordan River filled with the Holy Spirit.    All believers now benefit from the full dwelling of His Holy Spirit.    The water in the river symbolises the Spirit work which glorifies the Saviour,  For the Spirit of God named this typological river, the Descender.   Joshua and the Israelites had to cross the Descender  In doing so the Promised Land they would enter, We must simply believe in the cross work of Jesus  In doing so the Promised Land of Heaven we will surely enter!   We face a choice, which is free and freely offered. Please make a one time profession  Change your eternal destination!  faith in the Lord Jesus!   Change from death to life and be saved!  Yes, just call upon Him and you WILL be saved! Overcome death Just as He did! Simply by faith in just what He did!   Choose wisely.  Choose life!  Choose God's offer of forgiveness, Found in Christ! 2) How wonderful is the Word of God!   Humanly speaking, the Bible was written by approximately 40 men and women of diverse backgrounds over the course of 1500 years. Isaiah was a prophet, Ezra was a priest, Matthew was a tax-collector, John was a fisherman, Paul was a tentmaker, Moses was a shepherd, Luke was a physician. Despite being penned by different authors over 15 centuries, the Bible does not contradict itself and does not contain any errors.   The doctrine of the incarnation is referenced explicitly or implicitly by type or picture by all these writers.   God declares that His Creation will also reveal his invisible attributes which are clearly seen.   The metaphor of the Jordan River is astonishing yet is not alluded to by the writers, some of whom may not have even made the allegorical link.     As well as the Incarnation the following doctrines are pictured in and around the Jordan River: The Doctrine of the Sealing of the Holy Spirit The Dead Sea is the only place on earth where you can sunbathe for long periods with little or no sunburn because harmful ultraviolet rays are filtered through an extra thick atmospheric layer which contains evaporated water particles from the Dead Sea. The Doctrine of Eternal Salvation - in Joshua 3, the Children of Israel cross the river on dry land, the waters then resume to their natural level and there is no way to cross back in the same way. The Doctrine of the Trinity  - Hermon means Sacred - three equal height, equidistant mountain caps arranged in a triangle formation.   The Doctrine of the Ministry of the Holy Spirit  - in the way the water level falls at a place called Adam and is restored when the Ark picturing Christ's priestly work is pictured. The Doctrine of the 2nd Coming of Christ after the Rapture -  God has provided a living breathing Bible Eschatological Map!   Water enters dead sea 15.3 miles due East of Mount of Olives.   Some water evaporates and forms clouds (picturing the saints rescued in the pre tribulation rapture), some water is left behind and remains in the Dead Sea signifying those heading into the tribulation period.      The doctrine of the Kingdom Inauguration - The dead sea comes alive, signifying all Israel being saved Zech 12-14; Rom 11 (Israelogy - helps refutes Replacement Theology?) The doctrine of the first week of Creation - The river visits a place called Adam, and ends in death when Adam disobeys God leading to the Curse  (Fish dying as they reach the Dead Sea) The Sovereignty of God over His Creation (implied from all the above).  God created the water cycle in such a way that it serves as a continuous model which at the Jordan River pictures the death burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Either God has created the Geography of Israel to support key doctrines of the Bible or the writers of the Bible studied the geography and water cycle in and around the Jordan Valley in order to weave a story which was inspired by the Jordan River, yet did so without seeking barely any credit for their ingenuity!   The only verse hinting at the powerful significance of the Jordan River compared to all over rivers was found by Samuel Higgins in Job 40.   If the river floods, he will not be afraid.     He is not afraid even if the Jordan River rushes to his mouth.     Job 40:23   It is interesting that this is in the oldest book of the Bible, yet no other Bible authors make such a reference to the Jordan as far as I can find.   The pictures found in the Jordan river are not lying on the surface but have been left just under it for us to discover..   It is incredible that we are being blessed to know this now!   So the non believer has a choice to make. If the Bible was written without God the authors took this innocuous reference in the first book and then proceeded to weave the Jesus story ever more complex, without contradiction and yet consistent to the geography of the Jordan River  OR the almighty God made this to glorify Himself OR the connection is just a coincidence.   God graciously leaves the philosophical possibility of a coincidence open to us since it is not an understanding of evidence which pleases God it is faith alone. We all need to simply have faith or trust or belief in the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins.  Have you put your trust in Christ for the forgiveness of sins? Nothing can compare to the water that Christ offers us.   Let us close now by understanding how we can receive the forgiveness of God by believing the Gospel.  Salvation by Grace alone through Faith alone.   Grace is undeserved love. Faith or Belief is the act of trusting in something without seeing.    Ephesians 2 8-9  8 … you have been saved by grace because you believe. You did not save yourselves. It was a gift from God. 9 You cannot brag that you are saved by the work you have done.   We are saved only by believing in what Jesus did for us!   Any person regardless of swimming ability can exercise faith that they would not drown in the Salt Sea and they would float without any effort.   Undeserved floating instead of drowning as would occur in any other body of water on the planet.   The Doctrine of Salvation by Grace through Believing is pictured at the Dead Sea where the Descender dies.   The default position of man is one under condemnation (because of Adam's sin).   We all deserve to die because of participation in a world of sin, but there is only one place we can be to avoid this penalty.      The message of the Gospel is exclusive and non negotiable.  Jesus is the way the truth, the life, no one comes to the Father except through Him.  “. . . for whatsoever is not of faith is sin” (Romans 14:23) Closing Verse:   2 Kings 5:14 14 So Naaman went down and dipped in the Jordan seven times. He did just as Elisha had said. Then Naaman's skin became new again. It was like the skin of a little boy. And Naaman was clean! Thank you Uncle Charlie's for your excellent sermons at SuperiorWord.org.  We learned that the water flow in and out of the Jordan river can be examined alongside the Bible record to highlight many important features of the Incarnation of the Second person of the Trinity, the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, the God/Man.      RIVERS OF TEARS FLOW THROUGH MY EYES BECAUSE THEY WILL NOT KEEP YOU WORD!    Ps 119  --     Praise the Lord for he has provided us with a teaching model within the very place in His created world in which the Bible story unfolds.  This wonderfully reaffirms His Salvation plan through the Person of Jesus Christ.    Hallelujah and Amen

God, the Father, Is Spirit; Jesus Followers Must Worship the Father in Spirit and Truth with Reality and Honesty and Not a Façade MESSAGE SUMMARY: As Jesus, in John 4:23-26, tells the woman of Samaria by the well: “But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” The woman said to him, ‘I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ). When he comes, he will tell us all things.' Jesus said to her, ‘I who speak to you am he.'”. Not just God but the Father will be worshiped in Spirit and in Truth. The father desires the kind of worshipers that worship in the Holy Spirit and worshipers that worship in Truth – not a façade but a reality and an honesty before God. God is Spirit, and His worshippers must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth because Jesus told us, in John 14:6: “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'". We serve a God who is Spirit, in His essence, as well as The Truth.   TODAY'S PRAYER: Keeping the Sabbath, Lord, will require a lot of changes in the way I am living life. Teach me, Lord, how to take the next step with this in a way that fits my unique personality and situation.

Human love is a complex thing. It's flawed and imperfect and can often be conditional and damaging to us. But God's love for us is different; it's perfect, absolute, and ever-unconditional. Through Christ, his Son, we have been redeemed and all our sins forgiven when we receive Christ as Lord and Savior. Abiding in the confidence that comes from God's love[1] removes all doubts and fear. It's the only transforming love that will never diminish or come to an end.In this episode of the Revelations Podcast, Delaney Dobbs and Beverly Coniaris of She is Becoming Podcast joins us to speak about God's love. They talk about our role as Christians in speaking His truth and embodying and bringing His love to others.

It's important for the Church and culture.Women want to hear from women of all ages. The older and younger generation have a lot to learn from each other.[05:26] How to Love an Angry CultureYou will feel the angst and anger of people by simply living in the culture.In the episode with Reagan, they talked about how to love with healthy boundaries from Scripture while sharing the gospel and reflecting God.The country has never been so divided. It's the role of God's people to have a different voice and bring people together amidst this.It's our job in the Church to love and to be sure of God's love.[07:33] What Stands Out about Love in 1 John 4:7-19 for Delaney1 John 4 was written to a group of churches believing a Gnostic gospel. The false gospel says that the body and mind are separate and evil, and any emotions that have to do with love and joy must be suppressed.The evidence of a Christian that has been changed by Christ is to love and love well.In the passage, John is encouraging Christians on how to love fellow believers and how to be confident in God's love. He also advocates for Christ's divinity and humanity.1 John 4 says that the love of God was made manifest in us. It's rich in doctrine and theology and is practical at the same time.[09:34] What Stands Out about Love in John 7:19 for BevJohn used love as a test of faith and eternal life.Beverly [10:03]: “One of the fruit[s] of the Spirit, if we have the Spirit of God living in us through faith, is love. So if love is not there, the Spirit may not be there, and we may not be God's child.”John is writing to believers; fellow Christians were to love one another.The emphasis is for our love to be a witness of the world. If that disintegrates in the Church, there's no hope for the world.The people of the Church are the ones who have to bring God's love to others.[11:17] On Not Feeling LovedFeelings trump faith and truth. That's our culture.Feelings come and go; they're unreliable. We can experience an up and down in feeling God's love, similar to our relationships.In this situation, we must first recognize why we doubt God's love. Guilt is a big reason why we feel the need to turn away from God. Other causes are disobedience, other people not loving us, and not knowing the Scriptures.What you have to do when you're doubting is to return to the truth that God loves you and believe it.[15:33] Love is from GodGod is the originator of love. We don't come to God and start loving Him; He starts by loving us.The idea that God has initiated His love for you is a foundational truth you can return to when you don't feel loved.God's love is different from human love. His love is agape love or meeting the needs and caring for the receiver of His love.God's love is sacrificial on behalf of the beloved. The cross is God's demonstration of His love.Similarly, loving one another is setting aside our own selfish needs on behalf of others.[18:46] How God's Love Makes a Difference in Our Everyday LifeHis love enables our love. You can see the impact of God's love with how you love those who are hard to love, even from afar.Love is not a feeling; it's a choice and a commitment. It also manifests in discipline and telling truths and consequences, not just affection.Delaney [24:13]: “You can't experience God's love and not love other people.”Just smile at people. It's a small thing, but it's an act of love.God's love gives us the confidence to love ourselves and other people and speak the truth.Tune in to the full episode to hear more examples of how love makes a difference in our everyday life![32:50] Being Confident in God's LoveBeing confident in God's love means that you don't have to do things to earn it.We can express our love back to Him by obeying Him, living in truth, and living as he loves us.There's nothing we could ever do that would cause God to stop loving us. The way he shows us love is never skewed and is always perfect.We try to find the love God gives in all the wrong places. But the only way we will meet that need for love is in Him.[36:18] What the World says Love isOne thing is that love is love and whatever you want it to be. The root of it is nobody in culture knows how to define love.Desensitization to intimacy has impacted our view of love.We've taken a picture of how God is supposed to love and devalued it.Thinking that love is a way to rationalize sin and put it on a pedestal. But if you don't have a relationship with the Lord, you are not equipped to love.The world's love is all self-love and is the opposite of God's love. God affirms that we are to love ourselves, but it can't be void of Him.[41:45] Justification for SinSuppressing all feelings, such as the premise of the church John was writing to, is also unhealthy.The idea that people could do whatever they want with their bodies because it's not associated with the spirit life is a justification for sin.[44:07] Hurting and Loving Each Other as ChristiansJohn 7:19 speaks about loving each other as Christians.It's easy to want to fight back when you get hurt by other Christians. It's not always the right thing to do.Speaking an honest word can be loving, but it's hard. You don't do anybody a favor by saying nothing when you see something.The huge reason culture is angry is because they don't have confidence in God's love.Having a good theology of God's love on top of living it out can help us live confidently in His love.[48:07] Combating Guilt and ShameSpeaking truth to ourselves in love is how we combat guilt and shame.Believe His word and forgiveness as true. Only then can you move on.We like to punish ourselves. If we don't allow Christ to do it, we will do it on ourselves.Perfect love drives out fear.[49:49] Perfect Love Drives out FearConfidence is the opposite of fear. Being confident in God's love is one of the ways you combat fear. It's God's love that's perfect, not our love. But because of that, we don't have to fear.Having fear is fearing losing God's love. But we don't have to because we're secure with His love.Jesus is our Savior. God is our Father.Bev [53:31]: “He is your father. It's not just a picture. It's truth, and that's why we all have the same Father, that's why we're sisters in Christ. So that's why you get the new family. You have that security that this Father's love is perfect love, and then it will drive out the fear of not being loved.”We have to rely on the love God has for us.[55:11] On PropitiationWe can't love people for doing what we need. The only transforming love is Christ.However, people can reflect God's love for you, and you can experience His love through them.Propitiation is a doctrine. It means that justice is needed and has been met.Christ has taken all of God's disapproval and anger towards our sins as born sinners. Our sins have been propitiated through Christ, and God's wrath is over.When you begin to understand that God's not angry with you, then you can start to accept his love.[58:36] How Delaney & Bev Have Come to Treasure God's LoveOurs is not the beginning or definition of love. The love of Christ is something outside of us; it's something not defined by us and is always. It's how Delaney treasures God's love.God's love helps Bev get out of bed in the morning and go to sleep at night.Life is hard sometimes. God's love gives her peace and a secure place to rest.What God's love meant for Bev personally is mending her relationship with her parents and letting God love through her.[1:01:30] Love Covers a Multitude of SinLove covers all wrongs. Christ's love covered the world's multitude of sins in history.Christ's love gives us more grace and the ability to be more compassionate toward people who are hard to love.Loving someone can help bring people out of their sins. Proverbs 10:12 tells us to be that example and not to be overly critical.The simple act of sharing the gospel is love covering a multitude of sins.About Delaney & BeverlyDelaney Dobbs and Beverly Coniaris are the co-hosts of the She is Becoming Podcast.

Fr. Mike confronts the hard truth Jesus preaches in today's readings: Many people will ultimately choose hell over heaven. While this can be deeply distressing, Fr. Mike reminds us to focus on Jesus's directive to each one of us: "[You] Strive to enter through the narrow gate." In the second part of today's commentary, Fr. Mike reflects on two of Jesus' most well-known parables: the parable of the Lost Sheep and the parable of the Prodigal Son. Today's readings are Luke 13-16 and Proverbs 26:10-12.

Fr. Mike reflects on the goodness and providence of God the Father, emphasizing how Jesus calls us to be shamelessly persistent in prayer. Fr. Mike also explains two difficult passages found in today's readings: what Jesus means when he tells the story of an unclean spirit who is cast out only to return, and what Jesus means when he says he comes not to bring peace but division.

Trumpets figure prominently in the prophetic language of the Bible. Most people have heard of the seven trumpets of Revelation. These trumpets will signal seven powerful plagues unleashed on the earth during the Day of the LORD. The seventh of these trumpets will signal the beginning of Christ's reign over the kingdoms of this world. And this trumpet will also announce the resurrection of the saints to glory. But who has ever heard of the “FEAST of Trumpets”? Just what is the “Feast of Trumpets”? The Feast of Trumpets is one of the seven biblical Feasts that are outlined in Scripture. These are holy days observed annually by a growing number of Christians around the world. These holy days are not just empty rituals,
