So what do you do with all that Halloween candy anyway? Listen in as Maree and E.J. talk about another issue that seems ubiquitous: junk food. Notably, they discuss how a weekly, cyclical rhythm -- extending from and anticipating toward the Sabbath -- is the key.How can we be intentional about junk food? If you don't have a plan, it's easy to get caught up in all the sweets and treats. Someone brings donuts to work Monday morning, you brought cake leftover from church to go with your lunch and then there are cookies at Trail Life that night. All of a sudden, you're having 3 desserts a day! And your body can feel it; you're tired, impatient and craving more junk. We do not need to live in bondage to junk food. There is freedom in Christ! We want to take good care of our bodies in order to work hard, play hard, love and serve others and to go on adventures. To live in the freedom that Christ gives to us, we have to use the Spirit's gifts of self-control, discernment and faithfulness. We want to do this as a family and train our children in good habits and rhythms that will last generations! Our bodies are instruments of righteousness. - Matthew Henry's Commentary on Paul's letter to the church in CorinthYour body is not your own.

“CALM AND CRISIS” - A Prophetic Insight For Today's Troubled Times

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit   Jeremiah was known as the 'weeping prophet'.  Some say he was called at the age of 17.    He was called to reprove a crumbling nation. The Israelite nation.  Unfortunately for them they didn't  listen to him. But during his day, people were so hardened by sin that they neither believed God nor feared him. They seem to find Jeremiah's constant warning of judgment overbearing and frankly, annoying.   It's the same with us now.  Those that hear our warning find us obnoxious!  But as believers we are supposed to follow God's instructions to warn a lost and dying world of upcoming judgment. Even though most are not listening, we still have to persevere in courageously speaking truth in order to rescue some from the terrible judgment that will inevitably come. If we are so easily discouraged at fighting the rude behavior of our peers what are we going to do, when we are confronted by demons?    The LORD rebukes Jeremiah for his impatience, in Jeremiah 12:5 saying,  “If you have raced with men on foot and they have tired you out, Then how can you compete with horses? If you fall down in a land of peace [where you feel secure], Then how will you do among the lions in the flooded jungle thicket beside the Jordan?”   If we are distraught when we can't make a car payment, what will we do when we lose our job? If the footmen weary you what will the horses do?   If we are distressed at the terrorism going on overseas, what will we do when it's in our own neighborhoods? Because it already is! If the footmen weary you what will the horses do?   If we are overwhelmed with the work we have now, what will we do when a double or triple portion is required of us?  If the footmen weary you what will the horses do?   God is reminding Jeremiah (and us) that there is much more to be concerned about than what we're complaining about .  There is something ahead of us in this season my friends that is of more concern than petty grievances against those who seem to be better off or live easier than we do.  God is telling Jeremiah “ If you are not able to encounter lesser dangers, how will you be able to overcome greater ones?”  Jesus said to us in John 16: 33 “I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! Take Courage! I have overcome the world.”   It's natural that our hardest days and most difficult trials are ahead of us, not behind us. If you are worried and in great upset about these things, what are you going to do when you are forced to face extremely difficult trials and troubles that are most certainly just around the bend?   Matthew Henry said, “The faith even of strong believers may sometimes be sorely shaken and ready to fail them. There will be storms that will try the firmest anchors.” Now, Isn't that the truth?  Jeremiah was consumed with grief about the prosperity of the wicked in Anathoth when just in a short time He would be beaten in Jerusalem by order of the priest Pashhur (instead of worrying about the prosperity of heathens in Anathoth, he was about to be severely punished by a priest in Jerusalem).    Let's take a sneak peek of what is in store for Jeremiah: “He had Jeremiah the prophet beaten and put in the stocks at the Upper gate of Benjamin at the LORD's temple.” Jer. 20:2   God saw this coming when Jeremiah was crying about the prosperity of the wicked! If Jeremiah had known what was going to happen ahead of him, He wouldn't have wasted time complaining about the men of Anathoth. Jeremiah was concerned about something insignificant when something greater needed his attention.  And, His own family was secretly conspiring against him — they spoke well of him to his face but were trying to incite a mob against him behind his back. They seemed to be friendly but they were really his enemies.   God's faithful servants shouldn't think it's strange that their enemies are in their own family, some living under their own roof.   Jesus told us in Matthew 10:34-35  “For I have come to turn a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. A man's enemies will be the members of his own household.”   So friends, If the footmen weary you what will the horses do?  I know I keep repeating the statement because it's what the Holy Spirit would have me consistently say so that you hear the challenge and that you are strengthened to stand up and be courageous, now!   God's answer to Jeremiah was to be absolutely determined to stay solid and immovable in his walk with God, because there were bigger trials ahead of him that needed his attention. But God does let him know what will happen to Israel and her enemies. Although God punishes Israel by allowing her enemies to overtake the land, God would not let her enemies sacrilegiously use that land which belongs to Israel. Even their land is blessed! “But after I uproot them, I WILL AGAIN HAVE COMPASSION and will bring each of them back to his own inheritance and his own country.” (Jeremiah 12:15) God will again deliver his people from their enemies by uprooting them just as he did when they were suffering in Egypt.    God shows that even his enemies may receive compassion and grace. “And if they learn well the ways of my people and swear by my name, saying, 'As surely as the LORD lives' even as they once taught my people to swear by Baal – then they will be established among my people.” (v.16)   God's Expectation Is Plain.  If Israel's enemies would pay homage to God the way they did for Baal, (a dead and dumb idol) if they could humble themselves to follow the God of Israel instead of teaching Israel to follow idols they would be rewarded, but if not... “'But if any nation does not listen, I will completely uproot and destroy it,' declares the LORD” (v. 17)   God's call and Plan and Instructions for us can be summed up in  I Corinthians 16:13 “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.”    Our greatest difficulties are ahead of us, not behind us. (If our troubles were always behind us, we would never grow as a Christian.)  We mustn't waste time complaining about petty things.  Quickly put on your helmet, take up your sword and shield, tighten your armor and get ready! Get ready to run with the horses!   God offers Jeremiah a beautifully wise word picture for him to consider.  He essentially asks Jeremiah, “If footmen weary you, what will the horses do?”    Paul referred to life as a race.  Makes sense, after all, it has a beginning, a middle, and a strong determination to finish strong. It requires endurance, patience, devotion and a resolution to finish strong. At the end of his life Paul said, “I have finished the race.” And referring to Jeremiah's race God is saying: If running with others on foot, when everything is equal, what are you going to do when they are given horses?   In this verse the prophet Jeremiah has been complaining about his persecutors. God Divinely answers, and warns Jeremiah about his impatience, and then tells him that harder trials are in store for him.  What? More distressing times?    We all have had the experience of how in our lives, there are long stretches of uneventful days, and then, generally without warning, some crisis is sprung on us, which demands quite a different set of gifts to cope with it. Our monsoons in Colorado, generally come without any warning from a falling barometer.   We can at any moment be confronted with some hard duty which will exhaust our energy. We may at any moment be plunged in some huge calamity and the quiet course of our lives for years suddenly is interrupted with fierce storms and devastating fallout.    We won't always have the easy foot race with footmen; there will some times come a call to strain our muscles to keep up with the gallop of the cavalry. We will have to struggle to keep our feet in the rising waters of difficultly, and must not expect to have a continual leisurely life in ‘a land of peace.'   With the power of Jesus in our spirits we shall never have to attempt a duty that we are not first strengthened by Him to take on.  And we never have to face a danger in which He won't defend us.    With His life in us we will be ready for the long hours of uneventful, unexciting duties, and for the short spurts that make precise calls on each of us to respond to. We ‘WILL run and not be weary; we will walk and not faint.'    As I finish this podcast I'd like to share what Oswald Chambers said about patience during the time of great difficulty and when the world is filled with uprising.  It is so powerful and quite comforting.   The Duty of Patience "Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth" (Rev. 3:10). Jesus says we are to keep the word of His patience. There are so many things in this life that it seems much better to be impatient about.  The best picture to explain this is that of an archer:  He pulls the bow string further and further away from his bow with the arrow solidly fixed in its slot, then, when it is adjusted, with his eye on the target he lets it fly.  The Christian's life is like that. God is the archer.  He takes the saint like a bow which He stretches, and we get to a certain point and say,"I can't stand any more, I can't stand this test of patience any longer," but God goes on stretching.  He is not aiming at OUR TARGET mark, but at His own, and the patience of the saints is that we hold on until He lets the arrow fly straight to His goal.   Are you ready for a time of strengthening to come into your life?  The Lord promises that a dramatic transformation will take place in us when we abandon our agenda and open ourselves to His plan for us.    We can see this so clearly in the life of Saul before he had become the Apostle Paul. Saul had been intent upon his own evil strategy to persecute Christians. Then came his life-changing encounter with Jesus, when he asked the most important question of all in Acts 9:6:  “Lord, what do YOU want me to do?”   Are you ready to ask the Lord that same question?  Are you ready to give up your own fruitless designs in return for God's better plan? Let's pray that together now. Lord Jesus, I have been moving forward persistently with my own thoughts and plans. I have been intent upon seeing those accomplished. Now I see that despite my good intentions, my plans may not be in line with Yours. Right now, I humble myself before You.  I take this moment to ask, “Lord, what do You want me to do?”  In Your presence, I place my agenda on the shelf, and I open my heart and my hands to Your plans and purposes. I belong to You, Lord. Please forgive me for any stubbornness that may have captivated me.  I pull down that stronghold right now—any thought that needs to be taken captive to the obedience of Christ.  I place my future in Your hands, Lord Jesus.  Have Your way—and only Your way—in my life.

Lamentaciones 3:22-23, RVC«LOS “RÍOS” DE LA MISERICORDIA DE DIOS -escribe Matthew Henry— fluyen plena y constantemente, pero nunca se secan. [Sus corrientes) son nuevas cada mañana». * Como el maná alimentaba diariamente al pueblo de Israel en el desierto, cada mañana recibimos una provisión nueva y fresca de la misericordia de Dios. ¡Nunca se agota!Para que tengamos una idea de lo hermosa que es la promesa de nuestro texto de hoy, basta con saber que la palabra hebrea que aquí se traduce como «misericordia» (Heb. jésed) aparece unas 245 veces en el Antiguo Testamento, aunque el término ha sido convertido mayormente como «misericordia», también ha sido convertido como «bondad», «clemencia», «piedad», «benevolencia», «gracia», «fidelidad», «amor permanente» ...**¿Captamos la idea? Cuando la Escritura dice que la misericordia de Dios «se renueva cada mañana», lo que nos está recordando es que, no importa cuán difíciles sean las pruebas que hoy nos toque enfrentar, habrá gracia suficiente a nuestra disposición, misericordia suficiente, bondad, suficiente piedad, porque el Dios que fue fiel a sus promesas ayer también será fiel hoy y lo será mañana. ¿Por qué es así? ¡Porque «nunca su misericordia se ha agotado»!No hace mucho leí un relato de HMS Richards que ilustra muy bien lo que queremos decir. Cuenta Richards que en una congregación que pastoreaba Rowland Hill había un hombre muy pobre y también uno muy rico. Un día, el rico le dio al pastor Hill una suma significativa de dinero para que se la entregara al hombre pobre de la forma que a él le pareciera más conveniente. Podía darle todo el dinero de una vez, o por partes. El pastor prefirió el segundo método. Así que le envió al hombre un sobre con un billete de cinco libras esterlinas, y una nota que decía: «Viene más en camino». Cada cierto tiempo, el pastor le enviaba una cantidad similar, con la notita: «Viene más en camino».¿No te parece que así es la gracia de Dios? Recibimos «una porción» abundante ayer. Pero para hoy habrá una nueva provisión. ¡Y para mañana «viene más en camino»! Con razón Elena G. White escribió que «la fuente de gracia siempre está fluyendo. Es inagotable» (La maravillosa gracia de Dios, ed. 1974, p. 124). ¿Qué significa esto en la práctica? Pues que si, por ejemplo, en el pasado has conocido el gozo de la paz de Dios, hoy «viene más en camino». Si ha disfrutado de su perdón, hoy «viene más en camino». Si ha disfrutado de su compañerismo, hoy «viene más en camino». Padre bendito, mi corazón hoy te alaba porque tu misericordia nunca se agota y porque se renueva cada mañana.*Comentario de Matthew Henry, Grand Rapids, Michigan: Zondervan, 1961, p. 1029. ** Comentario bíblico adventista, t. 3, pág. 727.

The 260 Journey
A Pillow for Your Head

The 260 Journey

Day 187 Today's Reading: 1 Thessalonians 5 My mentor R. T. Kendall said: “The happiest pillow on which you may rest your head is the knowledge of God's will. I cannot imagine a more miserable situation than consciously to be out of God's will.” Paul gives us two pillows to rest on in 1 Thessalonians. Those pillows are the clear will of God. And Paul makes it very clear that we know this is what God wants for us. My friend Winkie Pratney says, “Many say they can't get God's guidance, when they really mean they wish He would show them an easier way.”  Yesterday we looked at the first verse: “For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality” (1 Thessalonians 4:3). Sexual purity is God's clear will, that is pillow #1. Here is pillow #2: “In everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:18). Paul couldn't have stated God's will and guidance for us any clearer: sexual purity and thanksgiving in everything. Difficult verses to live out? Absolutely. Possible to live out? Absolutely. But not without God's help. Always remember, God will never ask us to do anything that He will not give us the power to obey. Paul wrote to the church at Thessalonica about AD 54 while he was staying in Corinth. This was also the first letter of his fourteen Epistles Paul ever wrote. It was written mainly to Gentile converts, and was in effect, a design for discipleship, a practical primer on living the Christian life. So here in the fifth chapter of his first letter he ever wrote, he tells them, in everything give thanks. Paul did not say for everything but in everything. To say “for everything” would almost seem inhumane. No one can give thanks for everything, because some really horrible things happen to us. But when it gets hard, we can find thanksgiving in the situation. We can always find something to thank God for. And that's what Paul is telling us to do: in every situation find something to give thanks for. How was your day? Terrible. I had a flat tire on the way to work. No. Give thanks in everything. We can thank God that He gave us a car to get a flat tire with, a job to pay for the car that we got a flat tire in, the jack in the back that was there when we got the flat, and breath that we still have because the flat tire did not go bad and hit any other cars causing a fatal accident. Want to read the craziest I'm-thankful-in-everything scenario ever said? It has only been said in this place by only one man. Strange sounds, organs, all around him and here is the verse: “I will sacrifice to You with the voice of thanksgiving” (Jonah 2:9). No big deal, you think? It is a big deal when you realize who said that! Jonah—while he was in the belly of the whale. He gave thanks when he was inside a whale. If Jonah could say it where he was then you and I can be thankful in whatever situation we find ourselves. Famous English Bible scholar Matthew Henry was once attacked and robbed. Afterward he wrote in his diary: “Let me be thankful, first, because he never robbed me before; second, although he took my purse, he did not take my life; third, because although he took all I possessed, it was not much; and fourth, because it was I who was robbed, not I who robbed.” I believe it's God's will to thank Him before you ask Him. As Philippians 4:6 says, you are to make your requests known with thanksgiving.” Thank Him before you ask Him. It will purge your asking. How does thanksgiving purge the ask? Thanksgiving reminds you of all that God has already given to you. Former New York Yankees second baseman, Bobby Richardson, who is also a strong Christian, prayed at a meeting of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. This was his short prayer: “Dear God, Your will: nothing more, nothing less, nothing else!” Remember what Paul said, “in everything,” not “for everything.” That's the pillow R. T. Kendall speaks about. In The Hiding Place, Corrie Ten Boom relates an incident that taught her this principle of being thankful in every situation. During World War II, she and her sister, Betsy, had been arrested for hiding Jews. They were both transferred to the concentration camp at Ravensbruck and found that their living quarters were infested with fleas, making a bad situation worse. She was complaining about it one day, when her sister reminded her of Paul's words to give thanks in everything. Then she challenged Corrie to give thanks for the fleas. She made a choice to offer thanks for the fleas anyway. Later, she found out that the fleas had actually protected them from the assaults of the German soldiers. Christian poet George Herbert wrote these powerful words: “Thou who hast given so much to me, give me one more thing—a grateful heart!”

Pastor Bill: [7:04] What is your most unusual Talent. Pastor Newms: [7:06] You go first. Pastor Bill: [7:10] Okay so my my most unusual Talent or at least what has seemed the most unusual to other people throughout my life is my ability to walk through a space a room of a hallway and anything and then at the end. [7:32] My mind took track of what every item in the room was that I can go oh well it's along the wall halfway down behind the bench, just sticking out a little bit I used it a lot when I was working at Gateway when we're setting up rooms we get to the end of the shift and they'd be like, and we be going through the rooms okay how's this room has that room has that room and I would and I had notes already in my head you know I will this room needs this that it was this room needs this this room has this there that needs to be picked up, and then around the house will be you know I'll be walking around the house and then somebody be like I can't find my blah and I'll be like. In the living room underneath the couch halfway back you just you can just see a little corner of it sticking out go look there, that's my unusual Talent subconscious tracking of items in spaces. Pastor Newms: [8:33] I don't know if I don't know if that's object permanence or just. Pastor Bill: [8:38] It's like the opposite of object permanence, it's always there like object permanence is when you don't you can't see it it doesn't exist anymore this is like the opposite of that like I can't see it but it will forever be in my mind there. Pastor Newms: [8:52] And if you get smooth. Pastor Bill: [8:53] Twenty years from now I will recall that space and it won't be there and I'll be like but it was here 20 years ago. Pastor Newms: [9:01] Yeah yeah and that that. Pastor Bill: [9:03] And makes driving around weird too because I'll be like oh that building is gone oh that trees gone oh they pre-painted their mailbox oh that billboard has a different number on it now and people are like, I don't what what are you even talking about. Pastor Newms: [9:18] Yeah it is. Pastor Bill: [9:20] You don't notice details. Pastor Newms: [9:21] No well that's the difference between noticing them and remembering them also, that's the weird thing is the remembrance of, like strange amounts of detail about little things what's weird about it it's not necessarily the noticing because there's a trauma response lots of us noticed lots of things but we, forget them on purpose because they take up too much space I don't know. Pastor Bill: [9:53] Marie I forgot Phoenix is Van fire. [10:00] I did you some ginkgo biloba but you wouldn't remember to take it. It's a memory aid supplement that's why that's. Pastor Newms: [10:10] Yeah yeah most well most people know that yeah, I don't think I have any odd talents. Pastor Bill: [10:22] You don't have any talents. [10:38] I think it's weird that you can 100% hate and 100% love a complete stranger at the. Pastor Newms: [10:45] I don't 100% hate and love everything at the same time. Pastor Bill: [10:55] I didn't say anything I said arson a complete stranger. Pastor Newms: [10:57] Oh yeah that is a talent. Pastor Bill: [11:05] Thank God he says he's been on the receiving end of that. Pastor Newms: [11:08] No he hasn't. Pastor Bill: [11:13] Kind of yes but it's funny that he said. Pastor Newms: [11:15] I can't. Pastor Bill: [11:20] She says you have that Talent too. Pastor Newms: [11:29] I'll stick if you just I'm a good liar on one way or the other. Pastor Bill: [11:34] Mmm. Pastor Newms: [12:02] It's really not. Pastor Bill: [12:05] It is so uncommon statistically to be for to have someone to be good at math. There are so many people that are like meth what huh. Pastor Newms: [12:14] That's just because of training not because of actual unskilled Miss in it. Pastor Bill: [12:21] Think so I think math is an art not even a science. Pastor Newms: [12:23] No it's a science. Pastor Bill: [12:29] Here like dude it's the definition of science because it always comes out with them the same answer every time it's repeatable it's. Pastor Newms: [12:38] I could sell an ice cube to the devil and I can talk to anything but, selling an ice cube to the devil written really be that hard but that's beside the point. Pastor Bill: [12:55] I'm not sure why the devil would buy an ice cube. Pastor Newms: [13:06] It's because I mean if you run cold at a biological level you would hate hot drinks see you would need ice in your coffee or else it would burn you, see. Pastor Bill: [13:24] Holiest use go now it's not a hot drink anymore. [13:37] All right all right if you say so. Pastor Newms: [13:42] All right so now on to the topic of the night. Pastor Bill: [13:47] The topic. Pastor Newms: [13:49] So I didn't really know what to, name this one and it's going to be interesting because me and Bill consumed completely different aspects of the talking points so. Pastor Bill: [14:04] I misunderstood the assignment. Pastor Newms: [14:06] I'm going to be interested to see what we're what we're going to how this is going to go you did it logically it's just, not what I did and not what, I thought we had talked about but I don't know that I ever said it out loud because you know we'll see so, I titled this one your concerns matter dot-dot-dot because. Pastor Bill: [14:36] The job. Pastor Newms: [14:38] Do they do all of them do some of them do they. So so you know when we think about concerns, you know I love the the word concern even because the diction of it is accurate but then the connotation of a concern versus a worry what is it really, you know what I mean like people like I'm not worried I'm just concerned about it and you're like but, is that a is that a spectrum level aspect or is it just, the same like do not worry, oh I'm not worried I'm just concerned you know concern is an interesting word what's wrong Billy. Pastor Bill: [15:33] So I just pulled my Eastward backup it's been in the background. Pastor Newms: [15:36] Aha aha haha. Pastor Bill: [15:44] Verse I guess one was the one I clicked I don't know I don't know for sure yeah and I look down in the study notes, which is you know the notes that you put in for yourself elf for later and the study notes say, Brianne Manifesto live recording exclamation point Korean Manifesto live recording exclamation point freedom freedom Manifesto live recording exclamation point Korean Manifesto live recording exclamation point space Jay. [16:31] Delete those notes out because that it won't let me delete those knots out. If you let me delete those notes are we gonna have to leave it one character at a time. Pastor Newms: [16:41] I don't know how you broke your study notes. Pastor Bill: [16:43] How did I break my study notes in e-Sword that's so weird. Pastor Newms: [16:46] It is so weird who oh he go, not the question is is if you see someone yawn in person or someone's in a room and you yawn in person it makes them young if you're recording a podcast and you hear someone yawn as you're listening to a podcast does that make you yawn subconsciously. Pastor Bill: [17:09] Okay so I had a friend in high school. [17:21] The instinct to yawn after you hear someone else yawn and you don't have to see it just to hear it, is actually an emotional response if you feel an emotional connection to the person that's yawning, then it triggers the Yan response if you don't feel an emotional connection to that person that it does not trigger the Ian, and it works over the phone it works over radio it works with animals and you don't have to see it you just have to hear it. Pastor Newms: [17:54] I don't know I think I disagree with his control group or something because. Pastor Bill: [18:02] He looked up a bunch of studies and other people had done he did a bunch of experiments to test the results that he had found other people had done. Pastor Newms: [18:09] I don't think it has to do with an emotional response I mean an emotional connection. Pastor Bill: [18:17] If you don't care about the person then their Ian won't make you young it's not contagious you have to actually care about the person or thing Young. Pastor Newms: [18:25] No because I've been in a room with people that I can't stand and hate everything about them. Pastor Bill: [18:35] And in that case I would say you're lying to yourself. Pastor Newms: [18:38] No no if I said the names you would agree that these are people I do not like in any way shape or form. Pastor Bill: [18:45] Says says says empathic response it's exactly what it is it's an empathic. Pastor Newms: [18:50] Yes mmm now granted, what the best said is true hate is an emotional connection so that that would actually make sense so that's why I yawning if any ever anyone yawns because I. Pastor Bill: [19:11] Because you hate everyone. Pastor Newms: [19:12] Hate or love everyone in the planet so. Pastor Bill: [19:15] Some of those people hate and love at the same time. Pastor Newms: [19:16] Yeah yeah that's weird Okay anyway just thinking about it while I was yawning on a recording because that's you know so so so. Pastor Bill: [19:27] Yes it's some random Joe heard you yawn that didn't give a rip about you they would not trigger the response. Pastor Newms: [19:41] Back to the back to what we're actually talking about um you know with concerns and with, you know we're talking about discipleship you know we said last week we're talking about discipleship for like the next six weeks including that week and, you know so it's interesting when we look at being a disciple, and as a disciple what should our concerns be, what are the types of things we should be concerned about and what are the types of things we shouldn't be concerned about now when we look at, those aspects and the. You know what is concerns you know what are worried what are you know what are the things we should be, concerned with and working towards so if you have concern for something you care for it whether you're worried about it or you you know, it's what you are semi focused on if you have a concern so, one thing and a main thing that we should be seeking. [21:10] Is you know the kingdom of God we should be seeking Jesus we should be seeking, those aspects and so are our concerns should lie in the, our concerns should not necessarily be of, this world to a degree and this is where the that question comes is do your concerns matter because they do in that it's important what you're concerned about, you know certain concerns matter in the grand scheme, scheme of things and some concerns are just you know we shouldn't be but we are let's be honest there I cannot imagine a single person on the planet, currently that has not at some point felt concerned about money, as an adult as children though this is a  true so the first place I want to look tonight here is. [22:28] Matthew 6:25 334 so, this is straight, sermon from Jesus you know when a very famous sermon, and so this isn't like you know one of the Apostles or you know Matthew himself riding it, supposed to be direct sermon from Jesus so we say he starts off therefore I tell you do not worry about your life what you eat or what you will drink about your body what you will wear life isn't, isn't life more than food and the body more than clothing consider the birds of the sky they do not sow or reap or gather into barns yet your heavenly father feeds them aren't you worth more than that, can any of you add, one moment to his life span by worrying and why do you worry about clothes observe how the wild flowers in the fields grow they don't labor or spin yet, I tell you even Solomon in all of his Splendor was adorned like one of these, if that's how God clothes the clothes the grass of the field. Pastor Bill: [23:51] One of the things. Pastor Newms: [23:52] What. It was thrown into the furnace tomorrow when he do more for you of you of little faith. [24:07] What do you mean. Pastor Bill: [24:08] He dropped the word not. Pastor Newms: [24:10] That not even I didn't say that. [24:21] The knot. Pastor Bill: [24:23] With not before Solomon. Pastor Newms: [24:24] It's not before Solomon that not even Solomon no you're fine so don't worry saying, what will we eat or what will we drink or what will we wear for the Gentiles eagerly seek these things and your heavenly father knows that you need them but seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be provided for you there for don't worry about tomorrow because tomorrow will worry about itself each day has enough trouble for its own and, you know one of the aspects we know when we break this down it's interesting because. We know that worry is one of those things that's extremely hard not to do it's very hard not to be concerned with you know what are we going to do how are we going to do it, you know we've all most have all had those types of issues but. [25:25] It's true that, shouldn't worry as much as we do and I like one of the aspects that's here is can any of you add one moment of his life span by worry which we know for a fact, worry does the opposite psychologically worry actually takes time off of Our Lives not adding to it so I found that to be you know humorous, with that touch anything to say about that Pastor Bill. And concerns since that's the whole aspect so far. Pastor Bill: [26:30] The whole worry and concern stuff. Pastor Newms: [26:31] Right so part of that aspect is then to lead to of course where should we be concerned, and if we're not going to be supposed to be concerned with the things of this world what should we be concerned of what part of the car concern of course as we learned about last week should be about you know growing the kingdom and, making disciples not just salvation not just salvations working with people friendship evangelism helping people grow excetera etc etc, and then so when you think about okay we have, we should seek the kingdom of God, why why seek the kingdom of God and not seek something else and one of the verses that came to mind for me, that I found was Colossians 13 and it says. [27:49] And it reads he's rescued us from the Dominion of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the son he loves, and part of that, is reason I grab that verse is that whole thing of we have we are part of his kingdom so we should be seeking and we should be concerned with, that Kingdom the kingdom that we are now a part of through, salvation because he's rescued us from that domain in transferred us into his kingdom and so that's kind of the the area, of you know where we should be concerned. Pastor Bill: [28:56] Is translated. Pastor Newms: [28:58] Interesting. [29:13] Yeah so it's the word. Meadows mess is taemi is 10:00, which is to transfer that is carry away dispose of exchange seduced pull out remove translate or turn away so, yeah they're both valid translations for that word. Pastor Bill: [29:43] One of the one of the translations is seduced. Pastor Newms: [29:47] Yeah yeah. Pastor Bill: [29:51] Subdues his. Pastor Newms: [29:55] Well I mean if you think if you think about it it kind of is you're pulling. Pastor Bill: [30:04] They were seduced away from Darkness into the light. Pastor Newms: [30:07] Yeah or your seduced to Darkness from the I mean you are you're pulled that word technically means to draw in we use it in our culture as, it's really not. Pastor Bill: [30:34] All right so when we're when we're talking about what what we need to be, um concerned with and focused on and and and putting our metal to when we're talking about religiousness we're talking about, as far as being Christians and being disciples and moving forward institutionally and, as a group and as The Big C Church, the first place I want to look is Micah. [31:16] And kind he is sold each of you what is good and the he there is God he he has told you and it says and what it is the law. [31:43] Ideas that are being expressed in the Old Testament are being wrapped up in the books these books are prophecy and these books of you know, all these ideas are being wrapped up in the preparation for the Savior to come, and as we get you know starting in probably Samuel and moving forward we start seeing these aspects of God that Humanity never saw before whereas for the first time Samuel the prophet says, it's not all about the sacrifices it's all about the obedience it doesn't matter, you know that you're sacrificing and following the letter of the law in matters what your heart is doing is your heart obedient to the Lord, that's what matters. [33:08] The Pharisees, and the scribes and calling them out in public about all the things that they're doing wrong and you can go and you can go back and read it, and try to imagine all the things that we see in religious institutions today that match the things that Jesus is saying. [33:40] The mint dill and cumin all right so he's basically saying even in the smallest of the herbs that you grow in your garden. [34:01] Hit you have neglected the more important matters of the law Justice mercy and faithfulness, these things should have been done without neglecting the others, crank so he's saying you've neglected the most important part. Pastor Newms: [34:23] Uh-huh. Pastor Bill: [34:24] What you were given by the prophets by the law by everyone that came before that was pointing towards me Justice, Marcy and faithfulness you abandoned those, to emphasise tithes to emphasise purity of, sexuality to invite you know what I mean like there's this list it goes on and on and even today we see the same thing where the church has emphasized all these little. [35:08] Paul talks about faith hope and love but the greatest of these is love and in that love that's where we find that Justice and mercy and faithfulness, Luke writes about the same thing in Chapter 11, and we'll turn to verse 42 always like to pull it up from two different gospel accounts if I can because it's a good idea, to get it from the perspective of two different people because. Pastor Newms: [35:41] Uh-huh. Pastor Bill: [35:44] I can say yeah that car. [35:54] No I didn't see a pea green car but I did see a puke green car, and really it's a forest green car but because the two different perspectives the cops can go all right we're looking for this type of a shade of car that's between these it's better it's better to get that more perspective right. Pastor Newms: [36:14] Uh-huh. Pastor Bill: [36:16] Verse 42 but woe to you Pharisees you give a tenth of mint ruined every kind of herb and you bypass Justice and love for God, these things you should have done without neglecting the others so Luke goes well no he said Justice and love for God. Pastor Newms: [36:44] Haha. Pastor Bill: [37:40] Is paid instead of going out and using our finances to bless someone else it's not about that. You've missed the whole mark. If you're not helping your neighbor because you have to pay your size, well I'm sorry if I feed my neighbor I'm not going to be able to give 10% to God what do you think feeding your neighbor is, but giving to God oh but it's got its got to go through the church. [38:35] The grace and mercy and faithfulness says do not say to your neighbor. [38:56] So that's what I had to to share their about that part. Pastor Newms: [39:00] Now you know you were very serious so I did not interrupt you even though you know my mind works much different than yours, and so we were in Matthew and then we were in Luke right, I often like Matthew more than Luke right just because Luke's more clinical. Overall but I've now cemented that I like Matthew Moore, because he like I obviously enjoy certain areas of people in certain types of food if he's going to call out cumin, and that's all I'm going to say about that looks like cumin. Pastor Bill: [39:56] Luke focus on the Rue and Matthews like the cumin the. Pastor Newms: [40:00] Yeah the thing we've got to. Pastor Bill: [40:02] Matthews like Europe I've got this I've got this thing I've been working on mr. editor I need you to look through it and they that is like did you got three pages of verbs here listed couldn't you just list like three herbs people would get the point. Pastor Newms: [40:15] Which which makes me wonder, did you know it's about perspective like you said and we all take things when we hear someone say something we take it in our own way so it makes me wonder how many herbs Jesus actually listed, because he's talking to Pharisees who are who take everything extremely and so it makes me wonder. Pastor Bill: [40:40] Nothing I just Pharisees the scribes are there right she's talking about two groups of people who record everything in minut detail. Pastor Newms: [40:52] So it would be interesting to know. In a situation like this was there other things that he listed because he was making a point, in the gospels they only recorded, you know they're like if I record this mini I'll get the point across Luke's like I can get the point across into Matthews like we need at least four you know and I'm going to say other spices and you're just going to say every kind of herb will be fine, but it does make me wonder because Jesus was, had a lot of attitude when you really look when he's dealing with these religious people so I just wonder how long he actually sat and just said things that they grew in their Garden. Pastor Bill: [41:36] It was probably at least seven herbs and spices. Hey if we're going to have some levity about the topic we might as well. Pastor Newms: [41:48] Just enough to make some chicken now. Pastor Bill: [41:50] Some levity just a dove take to make chicken. Pastor Newms: [41:54] So I do find it interesting though that, you know the different things that people record when they're hearing someone speak, I mean we all we see it all the time we know this is the kind of thing that happens in real life you know we you have a bunch of people that are listening and bunch of people write it down differently now I wanted to point out, the next verse in Matthew because for people who don't know when, read I can't read one thing I tend to consume Pages at a time not sentences which is really funny because when Pastor Bill edits the transcript, it takes him a while and he, and it's perfect when he's done when I do it it's like 30 minutes and it's pretty close and that's how our minds work differently from each other because I consume the whole like I just I scroll very fast and I'm looking for things that don't look right so, when I'm reading a little thing because Pastor Bill is reading it I'm consuming the things above it and the things below it just because it's on a on a page. [43:10] And so when, first 24 he says blind guides you strain out a gnat but gulp down a camel and I just like that because it's one of those things where. [43:27] Punches that that aspect of. [43:33] You really just don't get it you're so worried about you know as a special said you're so worried about the spices you're so worried about the this and that but it's like, he takes it that step farther of like you literally, strained in that and drink a camel and that's just funny to me to see a bunch of. Pastor Bill: [43:58] Got to be some that's got to be some kind of reference to something I'm trying to see here. Pastor Newms: [44:02] And one second. [44:14] I'm back nibbles was up on something that she shouldn't have been and looking at me crazy, so I got on to her and now she's decided to join me since I got onto her because I said her name so that must mean that I want her, but no I just found that to be interesting you know that this whole section is like straight up I'm going to tell you religious people what you're doing wrong and he really gets after it, and some of these other verses to I mean they're pretty they're pretty you know you clean the outside of a cup but inside is full of greed and self-indulgence you know, so yeah I thought it was pretty good you know looking at some of this. Pastor Bill: [45:23] Matthew Henry says it's as simple as what you're saying is just. Pastor Newms: [45:27] He's just comparing an at in the camel so this isn't. Pastor Bill: [45:29] On the little and then it just by their size as if you know. You focus on the smaller sins of others while you're literally consuming camels over here in your own sin. Pastor Newms: [45:46] Yeah, yeah and you're like you like you know you're you're worried about the tenth of the meant but you're not worried about, clothing the the people, so I think that's I think that's one of those things that's so important with the capital c church is that we seek after the things that are important, we are concerned with the things that are important we shouldn't be concerned with. Our tenth of meant as much our as we are concerned with, our brothers you know we shouldn't be as concerned about you know are are the floors of the church the right color, verses are the people we let in, all the right people and what I mean by that is not that we turn away people from. [47:14] That aspect you know now that we're turning people away that's not what I mean by that, letting people in that should be let in meaning everyone should but so often we keep our doors closed and we keep our people inside that we want to be inside and we don't let people come in that we don't like but yet, we are so worried about what the Pew color is what the color of the floor is our is our lighting correct is our you know and. We lose the important parts which is the conversation the fellowship the things we should be doing worried about the little things that don't matter, in the whole of the kingdom of God because even as Christians you know I worry about the light sometimes you know I die, I freaked out about the technology if it's not working correctly I when the important part is getting the words out there so we can have the conversation so we can talk to each other so we can enjoy each other's fellowships so we could oftentimes that is lost on me because of the small things that I focus on we all focus on different things and so that's something that we, really have to look at and figure out, where else do you have Pastor Bill. Pastor Bill: [48:38] I was all I had. Pastor Newms: [48:39] Liar try again liar try again. Try again all right fine meanie. So next week I don't know man I'm just. Pastor Bill: [49:01] I don't know two. Pastor Newms: [49:02] I'm at that point I had a headache for 2 days this week so I'm just now today feeling better so, next week we're going to be continuing to talk about discipleship and hopefully will be better on the same page of what we studied, because I studied focused on the front part of the book that we are using as our kind of you know Bible study that we're doing that that is Flowing to this but, Pastor Bill focused on board the week itself and so, it'll be interesting to see how that portrays into next week stuff so if Pastor Bill doesn't have anything else or if no one in chat has anything else, looking at you chat people. Not actually physically I'm physically looking at one person that's in chat but not the rest of them. Pastor Bill: [50:05] Twitch let's see chat. Pastor Newms: [50:08] Yeah it's over there over there over over no no for you it's in the right spot yeah yeah yeah. Because you you because you said well that's because you turned your camera don't start with me like making it my fault. Pastor Bill: [50:28] Because I moved my camera. Pastor Newms: [50:30] Haha alright well. Pastor Bill: [50:34] You couldn't stand me being in the middle of the screen you had to move me. Pastor Newms: [50:37] What do you mean. Pastor Bill: [50:40] Well if I was still on the other side of the screen where I was before. Pastor Newms: [50:45] So actually I had your box right your box you can look you can watch this look I can't, I can't figure out how to do a box okay so your box, Master box okay so your box was over here, because you were so actually for the viewers you stayed in the same place more of your stuff is now shown, you are pretty much in the same place because we can. Pastor Bill: [51:17] We didn't have to show more of my stuff. Pastor Newms: [51:19] I did or else it would have been just your stuff and only from your ear over because the rest was hanging off of the which is why I was like can you. Pastor Bill: [51:32] That's good to know. Pastor Newms: [51:33] No it's fine it's fine you're allowed to be big it's okay that's weird don't be adjusting stuff in the middle you're in give people, vertigo or something that's what people in the middle of the lot alright so thank you guys so much for joining us those that listen to live if you want to join us live you can we record this at 6:30 Central whatever time on Twitch YouTube, and Facebook it goes out and our chats all come together that we see on Twitch if you want to know where you can see that you can go to our website whatever that address is and, which is ekk.house and yes nibbles is very loud it's gonna be very interesting to see how that comes out of the transcription, and so. Pastor Bill: [52:28] Bill and I connect the Here and Now. Pastor Newms: [52:30] Yeah no I mean she's just walking around the room mad because Heather closed her door she does not like closed doors, and so come join us and then you can be part of our conversation as well and we can all, enjoy each other's company because that's what this is all about is being buried together coming together and studying and learning and reading and and all those and hanging out with our cats and our dogs and are random, you know other things that interrupt Us in the middle of in the middle of church and so come join us, and we'll talk to you guys next time.

Ignorance seeks leadership, power, and glory, says a modern commentator. A couple centuries back, Matthew Henry wrote that we are idiots when we ask for the glory of wearing a crown instead of for grace to bear a cross. Jesus said we need to forget about trying to be in charge and focus on being servants or, better, slaves, to others instead.What do you think you rule over? Should you rethink that?Questions, comments, and wild sputtering about the way I'm obviously misreading how Jesus said we should backstab our friends to get ahead in this life can be posted here or emailed to roger.mccort@usw.salvationarmy.orgDonations to support the work of The Salvation Army as we strive to meet human need without discrimination here in Nevada County, CA, can be made here: https://bit.ly/donateGVPodcasts of our messages can be found as The Shield Online at any major podcast archive or app, or by visiting our host site here: http://bit.ly/shieldonlineGrace and peace to you all.

"When the work of patience is complete, it will furnish all that is necessary for our Christian race and warfare. We should not pray so much for the removal of affliction, as for wisdom to make a right use of it. And who does not want wisdom to guide him under trials, both in regulating his own spirit, and in managing his affairs?" - Matthew Henry

Song of Songs 4:5 Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins, which feed among the lilies. Awkward  question but clearly God is asking us to consider this as He here describes His Bride and as Matthew Henry pointed out these seven attributes line up with the seven anointings in Isaiah 11with the seventh being a delight in the fear of the Lord. All this is discussed as well as Rashi the great Jewish commentator considered these two twins to be the two tablets as they mirror each other and as promised here is his commentary .... "the twins of a gazelle: exactly corresponding in one measure; the five commandments on this one (side of the Tablets, correspond to) the five commandments on the other (side of the Tablets), each commandment corresponding to a commandment. “I [am the Lord your God]” corresponds to “You shall not murder,” for the murderer diminishes the semblance of the Holy One, blessed be He. “You shall not have [any other gods before Me]” corresponds to “You shall not commit adultery,” for one who commits idolatry is like an adulterous woman, who takes strangers instead of her husband. “You shall not hear [the name of the Lord your God in vain]” corresponds to “You shall not steal,” for one who steals will ultimately swear falsely. “Remember [the Sabbath day to keep it holy]” corresponds to “You shall not bear [false witness against your neighbor],” for one who profanes the Sabbath testifies falsely against his Creator, saying that He did not rest on the Sabbath of Creation. “Honor [your father and mother]” corresponds to “You shall not covet,” for one who covets is destined to beget a son who slights him and honors one who is not his father."
