Reading about the Israelites in the Old Testament can make us feel pretty superior. After all, these people, so cherished by God, often got it wrong. God repeatedly blessed them, and in turn, they repeatedly abandoned God for things that seemed better and more appealing. They forgot His Word and His promises. Uncomfortable yet? Does this sound familiar?  Our world looks pretty much the same way today! There's a famine of hearing and knowing God's Word, both in and outside our churches. Something is missing spiritually, and it affects every other facet of our lives. In this riveting message by Stuart, he explains what we need to do, and what will lead to true life transformation. 

Open Line with Dr. Michael Rydelnik

When God created humankind, He created them in His own image (Gen. 1:27). Not only that, we were each woven together in our mother's womb. This gives people a special value that other created things don't have. We also have intellect that God has given us that we can use to study His Word. Join Dr. Michael Rydelnik this Saturday for Open Line as he answers the questions you have about the Bible and how it relates to your life.

GUEST: CARY GORDON, Pastor and Executive Producer, Enemies Within The Church As first century churches were established by followers of Christ, it didn't take long for false teachings to creep in through people with persuasive personalities and ideologies. In response, Paul and others needed to constantly point out to churches what misrepresented God and His Word to keep professing Christians from going astray. Paul wrote, “…mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them” (Romans 16:17). Today, a tidal wave of false teaching has flooded evangelical churches, seminaries, colleges, schools and bookstores. Some of the most notable evangelical leaders are propagating a Christian-sounding version of Critical Theory, known colloquially as Woke-ism. This is the false idea that oppressive “systemic injustice”—by whites toward blacks, men toward women, heterosexuals toward homosexuals—is the rule and reason for the ills that afflict the nation and church and therefore “equity” or “social justice” must be enacted. A new documentary film entitled Enemies Within the Church shows just how insidious, pervasive, and destructive Woke-ism has become and who the main proponents are. Pastor Cary Gordon, the executive producer of the film, joins us on The Christian Worldview to warn believers and call the church to stand against this.

Bible Reading: Psalm 98:1-9"Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus; just to take Him at His Word. Just to" The words of the song floated up the stairs, invading Harrison's sleep. He yawned and rolled over with a groan. Grandma was singing, just like any other morning. As her voice rang out, tears escaped Harrison's eyes and trickled onto his pillow. How can Grandma sing? he wondered. Isn't she sad that Grandpa died? As Harrison ate breakfast a little later, he asked her about it. "Grandma, how can you sing this morning? I don't feel like singing at all. I miss Grandpa." Grandma wiped a tear from her eye. "I miss Grandpa too, but singing about the Lord comforts my heart. It reminds me that Jesus is always with me--even in difficult times.""But Grandpa died," Harrison blurted out. "We had his funeral yesterday.""I know," Grandma said gently. "But I also know Grandpa wouldn't want me to stop singing. He's finally experiencing the joy of seeing Jesus face-to-face, and he'd want me to remember the joy I have in Jesus too.""Do you think Grandpa is singing now?" Harrison asked quietly. Grandma smiled. "What better place is there to sing than in the presence of Jesus?" She sat down next to Harrison. "Grandpa always said singing hymns helped him feel God's love and peace. Singing does that for me too. So many songs help me remember that God is truly good and that He is in control. Death is terrible, and I grieve because I feel lonely and miss Grandpa. But I can still sing because I know Jesus conquered death when He died and rose again. And because Grandpa trusted in Jesus, he'll be raised from the dead one day too!"When he finished eating, Harrison pushed away from the table. "I think I'll go outside for a while."Harrison went out to the barn, climbed up on his grandfather's old tractor, and thought about what Grandma had said. He decided to try singing one of the verses of "Amazing Grace" he'd often heard his grandparents sing. "When we've been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun," he sang softly, "we've no less days to sing God's praise than when we'd first begun." Tears trickled down his cheeks. "Dear Jesus," he prayed, "please tell Grandpa I'm still singing." -Barbara J. WestbergHow About You?Do you like to sing? Singing is a great way to remind ourselves of the joy we have in Jesus. Yet it can be a lot more difficult to sing when we're going through a hard time. But even then, we can remember what Jesus has done for us and sing to Him. He died and rose again to save us, and He promises to give us comfort and peace. He is good, so keep on singing!Today's Key Verse:Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! For He has done marvelous things.

Kids don't belong to their parents…and more on today's CrossPolitic Daily News Brief. This is Toby Sumpter. Today is Friday, January 14, 2022. If you want to see more of this sort of thing, please consider joining the Fight Laugh Feast Club. For less than a few coffees a month, you can help us build a rowdy Christian media response to liberal legacy media, big tech, and build a Christian megaphone for the truth. Got to flfnetwork.com and click on “join the club.” This resurfaced video of then MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry from 2013 is currently making the rounds on twitter. Play video: 0:00 to 0:29 "We have to break through this idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families". What you're hearing there is exhibit A of the principle of “not whether but which.” Christians need to get this in their bones. It is not whether there will be a god: it is always: which god will be worshiped and obeyed. It is not whether there will be parents; the question is only who will do the parenting? And in this case: it is not whether there will be some concept of covenant community, the only question is who will the community be and how will it be ruled and governed. Related to this is the law of displacement. I just made that up. But the point is that when the God-ordained government fails to do its God-ordained duty, another government always swoops in or creeps in to take its place. So if you're a father or mother and you are abdicating your duties as parents, it's only a matter of time before some other government will step in to do your job. And when we disobey God in these matters, we are always invite tyranny, oppression, and slavery. And if you say, me and my family are enough. My kids don't need anything else. You're disobeying God. Children born into families of at least one believing Christian parent are called “holy” – and that means they are claimed by God. And therefore, they are to be raised in the covenant community of the Church. Either you will have God's way or you will have MSNBC's way. You'll have the Biblical covenant community, or else you'll have the creepy secularist cult community. While 1950s morality was a lot more Christian, there was a humanistic, secular perversion of that traditional family that was already a weakening of the family. The strongest way to raise kids is in obedience to God. The strongest is not you huffing and puffing about being the head of your family. The strongest is not you going to all the church things. The strongest is faith in God and simple obedience to His Word. The strongest is under the blessing of God. Speaking of families taking their duties seriously, I want to tell you about Armis Dei, a Christian, Classical, and Collaborative school founded in 2021 in the lake country of Rhinelander, WI. Armis Dei is currently seeking its first Head of School. Their goal is to partner with parents to mature students to love all of God's truth so that they might live with courage in the world for His glory. Armis Dei school currently has 5 staff members and currently serve grades 4K to 5th grade with 37 students. They are planning to add an additional grade each year up through 12th grade. Even though this is a new work, its funding is solid with a growing tuition base and fundraising that will cover salaries and other start-up costs for several years. Compensation is competitive and Armis Dei intends to provide a generous income based on experience. Interested applicants should submit a resume or CV to Pastor Jeremy Vander Galien at armisdeischool@gmail.com. Speaking of confused governments: Starbucks has announced the end of its COVID vaccine requirement for its U.S. workers in response to Supreme Court ruling https://www.cbsnews.com/news/starbucks-covid-vaccine-requirement-stop-supreme-court/?fbclid=IwAR0bf1sYCsZ77bKg1pRDnbelSZBn0onzAOYhSZn1fXh2W2xQNF-QrqAbV7w Starbucks is no longer requiring its U.S. workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19, reversing a policy it announced earlier this month. In a memo sent Tuesday to employees, the Seattle coffee giant said it was responding to last week's ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court. In a 6-3 vote, the court rejected the Biden administration's plan to require vaccines or regular COVID testing at companies with more than 100 workers. "We respect the court's ruling and will comply," Starbucks Chief Operating Officer John Culver wrote in the memo. Ahem. For the record, Mr. Culver, the court simply struck the Biden tyranny mandate down. The court is not god. You need to comply with God's word, not the word of man. Starbucks' reversal is among the most high-profile corporate actions in response to the Supreme Court ruling. Many other big companies, including Target, have been mum on their plans, although some businesses have said they will maintain plans to require vaccinations. Clothing maker Carhartt, for one, told its employees on Friday that it was sticking with its own vaccine mandate, citing the higher health risks faced by unvaccinated people.

Ghislaine Maxwell Asks Judge for New Trial h​​ttps://www.wsj.com/articles/ghislaine-maxwell-asks-judge-for-new-trial-11642696832?mod=e2tw Lawyers for Ghislaine Maxwell asked a federal judge to grant her a new trial after raising concerns about statements a juror made following the disgraced socialite's conviction last month on sex-trafficking charges. In a brief letter filed late Wednesday, Bobbi Sternheim, a lawyer for Ms. Maxwell, told U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan that the attorneys had filed their motion for a new trial and related exhibits under seal. Ms. Sternheim requested that material pertaining to the juror remain sealed until after Judge Nathan rules on the motion. Lawyers for Ms. Maxwell indicated earlier this month that they would seek a new trial. After the trial, the juror, a 35-year-old man, told media outlets that sharing his experiences as a sex-abuse victim influenced deliberations. The juror told Reuters that he talked about his experience after some jurors questioned how accurate the memories of Ms. Maxwell's accusers were. “When I shared that, they were able to sort of come around on, they were able to come around on the memory aspect of the sexual abuse,” the juror said, according to Reuters. Ms. Maxwell, 60 years old, was convicted of five of six criminal counts in late December. The most serious count, sex trafficking of minors, carries a maximum of 40 years in prison. Judge Nathan has scheduled Ms. Maxwell's sentencing for June 28. During the three-week trial, federal prosecutors said that between 1994 and 2004, Ms. Maxwell recruited and groomed teens for sex acts with disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein. @libsoftiktok: “NYPD arrest multiple people including a young child, for trying to enter a museum (@AMNH) without proof of vaccination” Play: 0:03 to 0:14 One of the young men arrested can be heard saying “God will judge you.” Psalm of the Day: 134 0:09-1:25 Remember you can always find the links to our news stories and these psalms at crosspolitic dot com – just click on the daily news brief and follow the links.

Bite Size Devotions – Terry Nightingale Do you remember there was a time when the purpose for technology was to “give us more time” to do other, more important things? Like spending more time with the family? I remember when they were bringing automation and computers into factories. There was a lot of push back from the workers who thought that management was just trying to eliminate their jobs. Management and the technology industry rebutted that and said the reason for using new technology was to make our lives easier. We would not have to deal with repetitive tasks all day long. We could let the machines do it so we are not as tired when we go home. We can have a better quality product; a better quality life and better quality time with our family! Let me just ask you, how's that working out for you? I constantly here (and am guilty of this, too) that “I'm so busy – it seems like I don't have time to do anything extra…”  Does that sound like you? There are folks who tell me they have a hard time giving God just 15 minutes a day. They fail to study His Word. They fail to pray to Him on a consistent basis. And the excuse is almost always, “I don't have the time…” Well, my guest today is going to help get back into the habit of study the Word and hearing from God and spending “quality time” with the Creator of the Universe. Amen! Terry Nightingale is a pastor from down under in Perth, Western Australia. He moved there from the United Kingdom in 2003, with his wife Sue and he has been involved in some facet of Christian ministry over the years in teaching, evangelism, music ministry and pastoral care.  Pastor Terry authors a weekly blog titled, The Best is Yet to Come” which is short messages for busy Christians on the go.  He has written a book based off of this blog and off of his podcast, titled, https://amzn.to/3DJLELR (“Bite-Size Devotions for the Busy Christian.”) Help me welcome back to the program, Pastor Terry Nightingale! Pastor, thank you for coming back on the program!  I appreciate it! You were on back in January to talk about your other books. But this one is a bit different. https://amzn.to/3DJLELR (“Bite-Size Devotionals.”)  Why do you think this book is so needful in the day and time we find ourselves in right now? This book is based off of your blog and podcast? What's the name of your podcast? I love it. That is sort of like my daily podcast “Prayer 2021.” I go a bit longer. I usually average 6 minutes!  But I've discovered that more people are tuning in because these can be consumed very quickly. Is that why you wrote this book? Is this like a 30 day devotional type of book? Give us the format. How does this work? You do a blog. You also do a podcast. You also write books. You also minister. How do YOU find time to do all these things?  Is that why your podcast is only 4 minutes? And you decided it was time to help others out with a short devotional that can be consumed quickly, too? What a lot of people do not realize is the time it takes “behind the scenes” to do a podcast. Even a short one. Yours is four minutes and mine averages six. But it takes me a good half hour to an hour, sometimes, just to prepare for that short duration. Do you find the same thing in your prep time? Pastor Terry, this is all so intriguing. I love it. How can someone get a copy of your book, https://amzn.to/3DJLELR (“Bite-Size Devotionals for the Busy Christian?”) Is it on Amazon? And if someone wanted to reach out to you, to ask a question or possibly to do an interview such as this. How can they do that? How can they get in touch with you? I'll put links to all of this down in the show notes. Folks, as I stated in the beginning, technology today has not given us “more time.” No, it has allowed us to cram MORE into the time we have. Which, when pushed to the limit, means cutting some things out. I believe Pastor Terry and I are in agreement, one thing... Support this podcast

Unlocked: Daily Devotions for Teens

Growing up in my village with my parents was a joyful and fulfilling experience. But I realize now that there are many things I did not bother to observe keenly during those years. My mum reared some local chickens at home, but I did not take an interest in observing their behavior. Years later, as an adult living on my own, I decided to rear local hens myself. After the hens hatched their eggs, I kept the mother hens and their chicks together in one shelter during the night, and then in the morning I let them all out at the same time. One morning after opening the shelter, I stood by the chicken house door just to see what would happen to the now mixed-up chicks. "Would the chicks recognize their particular mothers, or would they just follow any of the mother hens?" I wondered. Then I observed that each mother hen, as she came out of the shelter, was letting out certain sounds. To my surprise and amazement, each chick began to run in the direction its mother's sounds were coming from. Each chick knew and recognized their own mother's sounds immediately. In no time at all, each hen had her own chicks with her. Something similar happens with humans. A newborn baby learns to recognize their mother's voice as she continually talks to them. As a result, the baby learns to differentiate her voice from others' voices even without seeing her physical form. Jesus said His sheep hear His voice, recognize it, and follow Him. We learn to recognize His voice as we spend time with Him in reading His Word and waiting in His presence in prayer. His written Word is His voice speaking to us. He also speaks to us through His Holy Spirit, who lives inside Christians. Because Jesus is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6), when He speaks to us we experience peace in our hearts. • Charity Kiregyera • Why do you think Jesus compared Himself to a mother hen in Matthew 23:37 and Luke 13:34? • How can you tell whether it is the Lord speaking to you? When God speaks to us, He does not contradict His written Word, so the more we become familiar with the Bible, the easier it is to recognize His voice. And even when Jesus convicts us of sin, He brings hope and peace, not condemnation and fear (John 3:17). As we learn to listen to God's voice, why is it important to be in community with fellow Christians? “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” John 10:27 (NIV)

Rev. Rick Jones, chaplain and director of spiritual life at the Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch in Minot, ND, joins host Rev. Timothy Appel to study Luke 3:1-20. Jumping forward almost twenty years, St. Luke once again sets the historical context. A different emperor reigns in Rome, but the same God who spoke His Word though the prophets of the Old Testament reading now speaks His Word through John, the forerunner of the Christ. John's preaching in the wilderness fulfills the Word of the Lord spoken by Isaiah the prophet. By including a longer quotation than the other evangelists, St. Luke reminds us that Jesus has come to bring salvation to all flesh. John's preaching of repentance is to all, but it is not a matter of mere moral improvement. He calls everyone to turn from sins to the coming Savior. The fruit of repentance shows in specific ways in specific vocations, even in vocations that we might not expect to listen to John. As the expectation of the crowd bubbles up concerning John, he is clear to set the record straight that he is not the Christ, but the Christ is coming. This makes John a preacher of good news, and yet, it earns him the same persecution as all the prophets who came before him. “The Beloved Physician's Orderly Account” is a mini-series on Sharper Iron that goes through the Gospel according to St. Luke. The Evangelist wrote his well-researched account of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection so that Theophilus would have certainty concerning the things he had been taught. As we still read the Word of God recorded by St. Luke, our gracious Lord gives us that same certainty that Jesus is our Savior.

Rev. Dr. Scott Murray, pastor at Memorial Lutheran Church in Houston, TX, and 3rd Vice President of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, joins host Rev. Timothy Appel to study Luke 2:41-52. The Lord returns to His temple as a twelve-year-old boy. He goes there according to the custom of His family in order to celebrate the Passover. In this, Jesus shows Himself to be our Savior as the fulfillment of the Passover lamb, and Jesus also shows Himself to be our example by His attentiveness to the worship life of the Church. When the observance of the Passover is ended, Mary and Joseph make the honest mistake of leaving without Jesus. When they realize that He is not among their traveling family group, they return to Jerusalem where they search for Him frantically for three days. The length of time they search for Jesus is a foreshadow of those who will look for Jesus for three days, only to find Him risen from the dead, precisely as He had said. Mary and Joseph also find Jesus precisely where He had said, in His Father's house, doing His Father's work. Jesus still wants us to find Him doing HIs Father's work in His Word and Sacraments. Jesus again fulfills the Law in our place by being submissive to Mary and Joseph, and He continues to grow as a human being like us in every way, except without sin. “The Beloved Physician's Orderly Account” is a mini-series on Sharper Iron that goes through the Gospel according to St. Luke. The Evangelist wrote his well-researched account of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection so that Theophilus would have certainty concerning the things he had been taught.

Week Two Reflections with Hunter https://youtu.be/LnEfwjAyYzA Never give up. That's a popular sentiment these days. It's used in sports and business. It's found on T-shirts, bumper stickers.  Giving up as easy. I've done way too much in my life. I've given up on goals, I've given up on hopes I've given up on relationships. I'm sad to say that I've given up on way too much that I needed to hold on to in this life. And I've also held on to things I should have given up long ago. I've held on to resentments and angers, my need to be right, my need for approval.  I've held on to these things way too long. I should have given up on them right away. Maybe you can relate. It seems like the trick is to give up on the wrong things and never give up on the right things. And Luke 18 Jesus says that we should keep praying and never give up. Prayer seems to be connected to our ability to hold on to the right things. Prayer is a two way conversation. It's relational. We share our hearts our fears, our failures are life with him. And he shares his life. His Word, His heart, his hopes for us. It's a two way thing. God is speaking to us in prayer and we are listening to his voice, his leading. We hear from him and respond and we worship Him. Without this relationship giving up is inevitable. It's just way too easy. But when we do pray, we are given the strength to hold on to endure to never give up. In today's reading, we hear Jacob listening to God speak to him late at night. He hears the voice from heaven. And it happens to be in a place called Beersheba. The last time God spoke to Jacob in Beersheba was many years before. He had been preparing to leave home and head to the land of Huran. fleeing from his brother. As he was leaving, he laid his head on a rock and he fell asleep. And while he was sleeping, he saw a stairway to heaven. And at the top of the stairway he saw the Lord. And the Lord told him, I am the Lord, the God of your grandfather, Abraham, and the God of your father, Isaac, the ground you are lying on belongs to you. I'm giving it to you and your descendants, your descendants will be as numerous as the dust of the earth. They will spread out in all directions to the west and east to the north and south. And all the families of the earth will be blessed through you and your descendants. What's more, I am with you. And I will protect you wherever you go. One day I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I have promised. Well, then Jacob wakes up. And he says Surely the Lord is in this place. And I wasn't even aware of it. But he also said, What an awesome place this is it's none other than the house of God, the very gateway to heaven. That awesome place that gateway to Heaven is where we see him sleeping right now in our passage today. It's years later, and God comes to him once again. And once again Jacob is having to leave this land that God had promised to Him. God is speaking to him. And you might say that God is telling him to keep praying and never give up. Surely this journey of Jacob's didn't look anything like the fulfillment of what God had promised him all those years ago. In that very place. God had promised to make Jacob a great nation, that Canaan would be his inheritance, and that his descendants would be a blessing to all the nations of the world. It didn't look like that promise would be fulfilled anytime soon. Jacob was going in the opposite direction. Jacob would die in a different land all together without seeing this promise fulfilled. But out in the distance. too far for Jacob to see. God was bringing about the fulfillment of all that he had promised. Jacob needed to keep on praying and never give up. He's told that Joseph his son would be with him to the very end, that Joseph would close his eyes. God is saying the same thing to us. Keep praying Never give up. It may look like God has you going in the opposite direction from what he promised you. But out there in the distance too far for you to see. He's bringing about all that He promised.    Someone far better than Joseph is with us. It's not Jacob's son, but God's Son, who will be with you to the very end. Hebrews 11:13 says all these people died, still believing that God had promised them. They did not receive what was promised. But they saw it all from a distance and welcomed it. They agreed that they were foreigners and nomads here on Earth. So keep praying, never give up. God is faithful. If we live a life of faith, a life of prayer, a life in relationship with Him, then we will have the strength we need to never give up. He who promised these things is faithful. He will fulfill all of his promises. We are the recipients of the promise that he made to Jacob, you and I. That promise that Jacob never got to see with his earthly eyes. God has fulfilled. Most of you aren't Jewish, you're not from the nation of Israel. You are the fulfillment of that promise. You have been included in that blessing. So let's keep praying. Let's never give up. The Son, God's son is with us. And He will be with us to the very end. He will close our eyes and he will wake us up.  hallelujah!

And if it is impossible for God to lie – then He will do what He said He would do. But, I can guarantee you from the Word of God, He will ONLY answer prayers that are in accordance with His will. That's in 1 John 5:14. Amen.  If you are experiencing a dry season in your prayer life – check yourself. Get back into the Word. Get back into agreement with the Word. Get back into an alignment with the Will of God and then you will start to see a change in the results of your prayer life. Amen! You cannot know what the Will of God IS unless you know His Word. His will is His Word. So the first thing you need to do is start to study His Word in more detail. You should be reading it on a daily basis. If you are not doing so – there is a big red flag right there! Amen! Next, you must renew your mind. When you get into God's Word on a consistent basis, it will transform your life. And it all starts in your mind. Remember, you are a Spirit. Your Spirit man was created the instant you were born again. That's what the term BORN AGAIN means. The Old you died and you became a new creation. Created in the image of Christ who is the image of God. So you are created in God's image – and that makes you His Child. A Child of God. Amen. But your mind, your will – notice I said YOUR WILL and your emotions – are your soul. All of the bad things you've ever done are still in your memory – your mind. This can make you sad, angry, feel condemned, or whatever. WHY? Because you know you sinned. But – you must remember, if you are born again, that has been forgiven… But, the devil will try to bring up those things you've been forgiven of. Those thoughts are housed in your memory. So you need to transform your MIND. Allow God's Word to purify your thoughts.  I've done things, before I was born again and yes – even after – that I feel absolutely terrible about. Things I would never do now. But, the good news is – I've been forgiven! Praise you Jesus! Amen!  And the good news for you is – if you are born again – YOU have been forgiven, too! Can I get an AMEN on that one! Praise God! So, although those thoughts are there, you need to start speaking the Word against them. You can only do that IF you know the Word. And you can only do that by getting INTO the Word.  Once you start to realize this, you become more noticeable of what God's WILL really is as it concerns situations you are facing. And once you know what God's Will IS in any given situation – that is what you need to start praying and walking out. As you do that – VICTORY comes! Amen! Victory in JESUS – Praise God!   All of that comes simply by YOU renewing your mind. When you realize that – you will realize that YES – you need to “upgrade” your prayer account and your prayer life. Shout Amen Somebody! Let's pray that God will help you to make the time in your schedule to start getting into His Word. Begin the process of upgrading your prayer account by transforming you thought life with the Word of God.

On today's episode we are talking about 5 things you can do to jump start your marriage... or 5 things that we should all be continually doing in our marriage, if we want them to be healthy and God glorifying.   NOTES: This Weeks Whiskey: J.T.S. Brown Kentucky Bourbon - Heaven Hill Distillery Pappy Van Winkle Cigar Christian B. was a guest on Chad and Tyler's podcast, "The Honest Cigar Experience" recently, to talk marriage and gave 5 Tips to Jump Start Your Marriage.

It leads to pursuing immediate gratification and neglect the hard thing and commitments we've made As Christians, God and His Word is our highest authority... not ourselves, not our minds, not societal trends. In the Bible, God designed men to protect and defend their family, property and stand up to evil. While many Christian men are willing to physically "lay down their life" for their wife or family... it's more likely that our greatest threat to our marriage is not external... but internal. The greatest threat is internal - The greatest threat is the husband not leading well and sinning against his own family. Ephesians 5 To steward our marriage well means to recognize that the marriage and your spouse doesn't ultimately belong to you but rather, it belongs to God and you are to take good care of it, as if it was yours. How would we treat our view our spouses differently if we saw God as our Father-in-law? We as husbands need to "practice" at our marriage. Marriage is a perishable skill and we have to work at it to get better and cultivate our wife.   Call To Action:  Follow us on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/the_old_fashion_dad_podcast/) & Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/oldfashiondadpodcast/) for more content & DM us to connect!

Scripture of the Day:   Matthew 21:22“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer…” Pray for ResultsHave you ever heard someone finish a prayer and say something like, “for Jesus sake, amen.?” That is so foolish. We are praying for our sake – not Jesus sake. AMEN? We are to pray to the Father – IN THE NAME OF JESUS! We are to pray for RESULTS. Jesus said if we believe whatever it is we are asking God for, that God WILL answer our prayers…if we believe that – THEN we will receive our prayers as answered. DO NOT DOUBT. Amen! How can you believe in something you do not know? In order to receive your prayers as answered, you must believe they will be answered. To believe they will be answered, you must base them on the Word of God. How can you base them on the Word of God if you do not know the Word of God? Quick answer – You can't! So, first, you must READ what God's Word has to say about your situation. Whatever it is!  If you need healing, go to the Word and look up – AND READ – every single scripture that deals with healing and Jesus healing the sick. “Well, brother bob, that would take a lot of time…” I didn't say you had to do it one sitting. But you should spend at least 30 minutes scriptures. And, in my opinion, if you truly are in need of healing, do it three or four times per day! “Three or four times per day?”  I don't have that much time…!  Really? What are you doing at 5am every morning?  “Well, brother bob, I'm sleeping…I work all day…” Look at where I am right now. It is 5am and I'm doing this every single day. WHY? Because I need a deep dive in prayer. And I'm in the Word every single day. But I needed to FOCUS on prayer. And the Lord impressed upon me to share this study with you. That is what I'm doing. But I have been getting up between 5 and 515 am for years, just to spend the first few minutes of each and every day with the Lord. In His word and in prayer. Some people want to do that at the end of the day. That's ok too. But you need to make it part of your daily schedule. Not something you do when you remember. It has to be part of your routine. Amen. And, if you need an answer to something in particular, like healing – then you need to spend 30 minutes reading healing scriptures. Over and over and over. If you need an answer to financial pressures, read about finances. What to do, sowing and reaping, giving and receiving, etc. Tithing…hello! The point is – when I said three times per day, if you were truly sick and the doctor told you to take these pills and go for a half mile walk three times per day for the next six months and you will be healed – would you do it? Most people would say yes! Even if you had a job. You would wake up 30 minutes early and go for your walk before work. At lunch time you would go for a walk instead of McDonald's or whatever. Then after work you go for your third walk. You would find a way to fit it into your schedule because your doctor said if you would do it – you would be healed… So why won't you believe the one who gave the doctor's their wisdom? Why won't you believe the One who created all things, including your body. Why won't you believe the One who created all the silver, all the gold and all the cattle on a thousand hills? Do you think He who did all that is incapable of helping you? Then start believing and asking for specific prayer, like we already talked about – and, as we are talking about today – PRAY FOR RESULTS and then, as our scripture says today – BELIEVE YOU RECEIVE those prayers as answered. Amen! I want to pray for you right now, that you would take this seriously. So seriously that you will repent for not doing so before…so seriously that you will start to spend at least 30 minutes each day in God's Word. So seriously that, if necessary, you will get up 30 minutes earlier to start your day with God in His Word.  IF you will do that, THEN you will see...

The earliest printed collection of William Shakespeare’s plays appeared in 1623. Now called a First Folio, there are only 235 copies still in existence, and only 56 are complete or intact. In 2020, an intact copy was sold for a record-breaking price of nearly $10 million—it was the most expensive work of literature ever sold at auction. Shakespeare may be valuable, but the worth of God’s Word is beyond calculating! When the day came that Israel would ask for a king, Moses taught that he should center his leadership around Scripture. To spur the king toward this goal, he set down an interesting requirement: He should write out his own copy of the Torah (v. 18). For the king to write out his own copy of the first five books of the Bible would require a great deal of time, labor, and attentiveness. It would be an effective way to become familiar with Scripture. He was then to read this personal copy throughout his life in order to “learn to revere the Lord his God and follow carefully all the words of this law” (v. 19). In other words, the future king was required to learn and obey God’s Word just as everyone else did (v. 20). There were other requirements as well: The king should be chosen by God, reminding everyone that the Lord is their true sovereign (v. 15). He should also be an Israelite, one of the covenant people. He should not acquire many horses, that is, he should not put his trust in military strength (v. 16). The same was true for wealth. He should also not acquire many wives— which at that time would have been part of building alliances—because they, being foreigners, would worship idols and could lead the king’s heart astray (v. 17). >> Consider putting today’s lesson into practice by memorizing or copying out a passage of Scripture. Handwriting Scripture into a blank notebook forces us to slow down and focus on what God is saying, allowing His Word to take root in our heart and mind.

This week on Real Talk with Rachael I'm talking with speaking coach Amie Stockstill. Amie is a fun-loving Southern who is passionate about training women to communicate the Gospel with confidence and clarity through her organization Let's Echo. Key Points from Our Conversation: There is not a calling that God gives us that doesn't involve using our voice. Despite our feeling, we know we're surrendered to what God is calling us to when we say yes even when we don't want to. Fear stops us from using our voice - fear that it won't work, that we'll be wrong, even fear that we're appointing ourselves. If you're worried about stepping outside of submission, that is proof of your submission and surrender. If you're wrestling with whether or not God has appointed you to something, first you have to wrestle with it with God. Take your time. If the vision multiplies, take it to the right people and have them partner with you. You can't do the exterior things without doing the internal work that lays the foundation and that can be a long process. The most powerful part of using your voice is saying yes to God. Even if I don't have any of the things I think I should have, I still surrender and say "here I am." If God says I can do it, then who am I to say no? Wherever you are, you can use your voice. All we have to do is echo the heart of the Father. If we simply repeat what He tells us in His Word, that's a no-fail system. The daily pursuit of holiness builds character. In order to have a character that sustains our calling, we must stand before the Lord daily and ask Him to refine us, purify us, and point out what's wrong in our hearts. We're never going to be perfect; God can use us anyway. We're not deserving, but we can choose to be obedient and humble. Be open to correction and rebuke and respond in a way that lines up with the Word. Resources Mentioned: Let's Echo free resources M'Cheyne One Year Reading Plan - digital | PDF Let's Get Real Practical: Let's debunk some myths we might believe about having something to say with these two questions - When you think of someone being used by God, what personality traits do they possess?

Wisdom is more than just knowing the truth -- it requires applying that truth in a way that brings life transformation. Having knowledge about the truth of Scripture doesn't mean anything unless we're also applying it to our lives. When God makes Himself known to us through His Word and we choose to act on what He says, a discernible transformation occurs that's visible to others and that reveals His glory to them.

Scripture of the Day:   Mark 14:39“Once more he went away and prayed the same thing.”Stay Positive and Resist DoubtIn order to receive the answer to your prayers, you need to let every single thought about the subject of your prayers to remain positive. Call it as already done – in Jesus Name. If you are believing for a financial answer to prayer, stay positive, even in the face of negative reports. If you are believing for a healing, same thing. Stay positive, even in the face of a negative report or feelings. How you feel does not affect the Word of God. Amen! After you pray in Faith, according to God's Word…you MUST stand on scripture at all times – NEVER allow a picture of failure to try and replace that Word that is LIVING on the inside of you. We are talking about receiving answers to your prayers. Once you have prayed and asked God for something…and when I say “something” I am not being a generalist here. It has to be SPECIFIC. But I don't know what you need or what you are praying for – so I have to be general as I'm talking to you today through this platform. For example, if you need $1,314 dollars to meet a financial obligation, don't just say, “Lord, I need a break through here. I need to see an increase in my finances…”  If you walk out to the parking lot and found a $5 bill on the ground, wouldn't that be an increase your finances? So God answered your prayer! “Well, brother bob, He knows what I need…”  YES – He does!  More so than you do…  “What do you mean by that?” Let's talk about praying for finances for a minute. This is a unique form of prayer because God is not going to rain money down from Heaven like manna. He has already put “all of the silver, all of the gold” into the earth at creation. They don't make that stuff anymore. And God isn't making it anymore either.  So, for Him to answer your prayer for financial increase, he has to get it from someone who already has it. When you say, “God I need $1,314 and I need it now” – God knows what you really need.  I know, I've had this conversation with God. I was praying a prayer like that a few years ago when God arrested me in the Spirit and said, “No you don't.” That shocked me!  I said, “Yes I do” and He replied again, “No you don't.”  Then He said, “If I give you this money now, next month you will be right back here asking for more.” And you know what, He was right. Then He showed me in His Word, that living by debt instead of Faith is wrong. It goes against Biblical principles. And with this pandemic, you can see why… People have been living for the here and now instead of saving. They should have been saving for an emergency fund that experts say should have a minimum of six months expenses and preferably an entire year. Most people do not even have one month of expenses in savings. I was the same way. But several years ago, as I was praying for a miracle in order to keep the bills paid, that is when God said “No, that's not what you need. What you need is to do stop borrowing and living on credit and start saving and paying cash.” When I did, man – life got better. Yes, we went several years without vacations. We went several years saving for an emergency. But, during this pandemic, when everyone was panicking around us, we were secure. That's just one example. But the point of what I'm sharing today is not how to live secure financially. My point was to stay single minded and focused on your answer to your prayer request.  In my example of asking God for increase and you finding $5 on the sidewalk, that was increase. You cannot say God did not answer your prayer. But, if you are praying specifics, “God, I need this amount of money by this day. I now SOW a seed to someone else…because your Word says to “Give and it shall be given back to me, a good measure, pressed down, shaken together and, RUNNING OVER, men shall give into my bosom.” But you...

Abide means to remain or stay, and as we remain and stay in Christ we will begin to live our lives in a more God-honoring way. This is how we were meant to live, to glorify God, to know Him more and to make Him known more. To know Him more intimately and make Him known more broadly. One of the primary ways we do this is through engaging with God through His Word, the Bible. With the help of the Holy Spirit we read, comprehend, believe and obey the Word of God. As we learned last week, Jesus was the Word made flesh. Jesus is the eternal Word, the Living Word, the written Word. As we continue in the book of John throughout this series, hopefully we will see what John wants us to see even more clearly, who Jesus really is.

Scripture of the Day:   Luke 22:45“Why are you sleeping?” he asked them. “Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.”Demonic Truth versus Spiritual Truth As we continue our study in prayer, I want to emphasize over and over for you the importance of BELIEVING THE BIBLE over believing what any other person has to say. I don't care if your doctor tells you that you only have a few weeks left to live.  You should just ask him, “So there is nothing else you can do?” When he says no, then state a Spiritual FACT – “Then I trust God to do what HE says He will do…”  Then start quoting some healing scriptures… Praise God! “Well, brother bob, that actually seems a little silly, don't you think? I mean, after all, that doctor is trained in this field. He knows when there is nothing else that can be done… I'd look like a plum fool to say I was believing God for my healing when the best doctors and medical sciences says I'm going to die…” It is belief like that which probably got you into this predicament in the first place. Maybe, just MAYBE, if  you would've gone to God and His Word at the first symptoms – you wouldn't be in this mess right now.  BUT NOOOO – you sought the best advice from MEN rather than God. Now, don't get me wrong. I love doctors and modern medical technology. If it were not for doctors and other medical staff – so many people would've died before they even had a chance to get born again. Amen. But, let's look at from a natural verses spiritual perspective for just a moment. Who came up with all the latest ideas and concepts in modern medical breakthroughs? I guess a better question would be, who GAVE these people the IDEAS of the concepts and the WAY they would work on the human body?  That would be GOD, right? Who created these bodies in the first place? God… Who contaminated these bodies so they would start to die in the first place?  Satan… Who established death in the body and death in the earth?  Satan… Who overcame death in the body and death in the earth?  JESUS… Who triumphed over Satan in all things?  JESUS… Who took all the authority Satan had in this earth?  JESUS… Who gave US that authority over Satan?  JESUS… In whose name can we pray and watch every demon flee?  JESUS… In whose name can we pray and believe sickness must flee? JESUS… Do you start to see a pattern here? Amen! There are two kinds of truth at work here.  Natural truth, based up on natural laws and consists of things we can see, touch, hear, taste and smell. Things that pertain to living in this fallen world. Then, there is God's Spiritual Truth – which supersedes natural truth. Supersedes natural laws. Supersedes what your five senses perceive and operates on a Godly plain that only God's children can operate in.  His Truth is contained in His Word. “Thy Word is Truth.” Amen. So, when you are faced with bad news like that…go ahead, ask the doctor, “So there is nothing else you or anyone else can do?”  When they say NO – Praise God! Tell them, “So, I've been praying for years that when I die, I will get to see Jesus. You're telling me that day is approaching! That's Good News!  And, you know what is even better, Doc?  I'm still believing God for my healing – so when it happens NOW – it ain't because of YOU – ALL PRAISE will be His. Bless God! This is exciting!  And, what's the worst that can happen, Doc? I die like you said and immediately step into Glory with Jesus and I'll be healed forever! Praise God! Now, I'm telling you right here, you will not be able to say things like that unless you truly believe them. Because when you start praising God like that, the devil doesn't like it. He will probably move immediately to shut you down by having the doctor start to intercede, “Well, now…I wouldn't get all...

Unlocked: Daily Devotions for Teens

People make promises but often fail to fulfill them. Sometimes people change their minds about the promises they've made, or lie about them, or even forget they made a promise at all. Other times, promises are broken because of human limitations or unforeseen circumstances. There are many reasons people cannot always be depended upon to keep their promises. But when God makes a promise, He always fulfills it. Because He is not limited in any way, God cannot fail to do what He has promised. He does not lie or forget what He has said. So it doesn't matter how impossible it may seem for God's promise to be fulfilled; it will come to pass because God has said so. One example of this is when God promised that Abraham and Sarah would have a child together (Genesis 17-18). Although Abraham and Sarah were very old and, naturally speaking, it was impossible for them to have a baby, that didn't stop God from keeping His promise. Sarah gave birth to Isaac at just the time God said she would (Genesis 21:1-3). God gives us promises through His Word, and we see many of these fulfilled in Jesus. In the Old Testament, God promised to send a Messiah to save us. Jesus is that Messiah. Because God loves us, He came and willingly died for us, and then He rose from the dead three days later, just like He said He would (Matthew 28:6). We can rely on Jesus to do what He says He'll do. As Christians, we can know He will be with us through the Holy Spirit, and He will return one day to judge the world justly, raise us from the dead, and restore creation! As we wait for Jesus to return, we can rely on God's promise in Hebrews 13:5, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” And the Holy Spirit helps us believe what God says, hold on to His promises, and wait for their fulfillment. God is dependable. When the winds of unbelief and the waves of doubt come, God will still keep His powerful and precious promises to us. • Enid Adah Nyinomujuni • How are God's promises different from people's promises? God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through? Numbers 23:19 (NLT)

By Rick Shabi in Jacksonville, FL, Orlando, FL - January 1, 2022 - Christ makes it very plain to His people that “agape” love is a requirement for us. He summarizes the Commandments and God's way of life with “You shall AGAPE the Lord God with all your heart, mind, and soul,” and “You shall AGAPE your neighbor as yourself. On these hang all the Law and Prophets.” How do we learn to AGAPE God and abide by that first Commandment of Christ? The answer is in the Bible, as are all the answers to life. Let's look into His Word.

Unlocked: Daily Devotions for Teens

When anyone becomes a Christian, it's easy to become despondent when suddenly things go wrong. The dreams you had of walking in Jesus's footsteps and showing others what He's like can quickly turn sour when you lose your temper or do something you later regret. When this happens, don't give up or despair. It's easy to think, “I'm not good enough. I'm supposed to be a Christian, and I've really messed up. What will people think?” Or, “Does this mean I won't go to heaven? Have I blown it? Should I give up now?” However, this is the wrong mindset. Yes, we are given a fresh start and a new heart when we put our trust in Jesus. But this does not for one minute mean we will become perfect in this life. Perfection is impossible, because ever since the first humans sinned by going their own way against God, we are all broken and flawed. Our sin separates us from God, and this is why we need Jesus. We don't have the capacity to be perfect on our own. What we do have is an advocate who acts as the mediator between us and God (1 Timothy 2:5). When Jesus was born and lived among us as a human, He brought hope to the world. For generations, God's people had been looking forward to the Messiah—the promised rescuer. When Jesus died and rose back to life, He made a way for us to be in relationship with God. And when Jesus returns, all His forgiven followers will be totally restored from all brokenness. If we've put our trust in Jesus, His perfect love covers all our imperfections. So when we mess up, God doesn't want us to berate ourselves and just feel terrible. Rather, His Word says, “Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret” (2 Corinthians 7:10). When we fall short, God invites us to take a step back, acknowledge our weaknesses and wrongdoing, and admit that we need Him. Through His Holy Spirit, God helps Christians daily to repent and follow Him. Even though we will continue to mess up until Jesus returns, God still works through our lives to help others. We can be free to follow God out of love, knowing that our eternal life with Him is secure, not because of what we do, but because of what Jesus did. • Cindy Lee • We are not perfect. Trying to be perfect causes pain. How might remembering that Jesus covers our imperfections help us come to Him when we fall short? For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:17 (NIV)

Scripture of the Day:   Luke 1:13“But the angel said to him, “Zechariah, your prayer has been heard. Your wife, Elizabeth, will bear you a son and you shall call him John.”God Answers PrayerFirst of all, let me emphasize, that God is not a respecter of persons.  What He does for one person, He will do for every person….we have His promise on that.  So, why doesn't He answer the prayers of every person…?  It is up to US to get our Faith “tuned into” His Word.   Despite what you may have been taught by well meaning Christian people, God is FOR you and NOT against you!  So many people for far too long have been taught wrong.  I had heard from as far back as I can remember that God was out to “get you” if you messed up!  That is totally, one hundred percent opposite the truth! Where money is concerned, Christians have been taught that poverty is God's way of humbling us.  That people in the ministry have taken a “vow of poverty.”  That if preachers do “get” anything, they have to give it away.  We have been taught that Jesus was so poor, he did not even have a home to live in (Luke 9:58 “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head”). Jesus came to show us how to be Blessed!  Poverty is under the curse!  Jesus came to fulfill the Abrahamic Covenant.  Abraham was RICH!  Job was RICH!  David was RICH!  Solomon was RICH!  So why would Jesus be poor?  And, if he was so poor, why did he have a treasurer?  A poor man does not need a treasurer – a RICH man does! Judas must have been giving A LOT of money AWAY!  Because at the last supper, when Jesus told him to “do what you need to do,” Judas got up and left.  The other disciples thought he was going out to “give money to the poor.”  So he must have done that so often that the other disciples did not pay much attention to him leaving.  This was after Jesus told them that one of the disciples was a traitor!  So any unusual actions by any disciple would have raised immediate suspicion. But Judas' departure was just a natural part of their dinners, the other disciples did not think it was odd! Christians have been taught for so long that “money is the root of all evil.”  But the scriptures do not say that. “The love of money is the root of all evil.”  (1 Timothy 6:10). It costs money to preach the gospel. Just ask your Pastor the next time you see him!  If you are not on the church Board of Directors and just think you can show up and all is well…and you give your little offering thinking “others” will give and that you need the money more than the church does…you are WRONG! Granted, God will make sure that ministries which are doing God's work will be taken care of.  But, the responsibility falls to us!  God holds each of us responsible.   We have been taught that God allows sickness, disease or calamities to happen in our lives in order to “teach” us something.  That is not scriptural.  Sickness, disease and calamities are covered under the curses – and we have been redeemed from the curses! (Galatian 3:13-14). We have been taught that our children ran from God because of something we have done in our past.  We have been taught that our children must “find their own way.”  Both of these concepts are not scriptural.  It is our responsibility as parents to pray for our children and teach them that God loves them and is there for them when we cannot be. We have been taught that we can “never know what God will do.”  But the Bible says the Holy Spirit will show us all things! (John 14:25-27). We have been taught that sometimes God answers our...
