Psalms and Wisdom: Psalm 51 Psalm 51 (Listen) Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. 51 Have mercy on me,1 O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin! 3 For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me.4 Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment.5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.6 Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart. 7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.8 Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that you have broken rejoice.9 Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right2 spirit within me.11 Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me.12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit. 13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will return to you.14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, O God of my salvation, and my tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness.15 O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.16 For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. 18 Do good to Zion in your good pleasure; build up the walls of Jerusalem;19 then will you delight in right sacrifices, in burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings; then bulls will be offered on your altar.

And they ravaged the Ammonites and besieged Rabbah. But David remained at Jerusalem. 2 It happened, late one afternoon, when David arose from his couch and was walking on the roof of the king's house, that he saw from the roof a woman bathing; and the woman was very beautiful. 3 And David sent and inquired about the woman. And one said, “Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?” 4 So David sent messengers and took her, and she came to him, and he lay with her. (Now she had been purifying herself from her uncleanness.) Then she returned to her house. 5 And the woman conceived, and she sent and told David, “I am pregnant.” 6 So David sent word to Joab, “Send me Uriah the Hittite.” And Joab sent Uriah to David. 7 When Uriah came to him, David asked how Joab was doing and how the people were doing and how the war was going. 8 Then David said to Uriah, “Go down to your house and wash your feet.” And Uriah went out of the king's house, and there followed him a present from the king. 9 But Uriah slept at the door of the king's house with all the servants of his lord, and did not go down to his house. 10 When they told David, “Uriah did not go down to his house,” David said to Uriah, “Have you not come from a journey? Why did you not go down to your house?” 11 Uriah said to David, “The ark and Israel and Judah dwell in booths, and my lord Joab and the servants of my lord are camping in the open field. Shall I then go to my house, to eat and to drink and to lie with my wife? As you live, and as your soul lives, I will not do this thing.” 12 Then David said to Uriah, “Remain here today also, and tomorrow I will send you back.” So Uriah remained in Jerusalem that day and the next. 13 And David invited him, and he ate in his presence and drank, so that he made him drunk. And in the evening he went out to lie on his couch with the servants of his lord, but he did not go down to his house. 14 In the morning David wrote a letter to Joab and sent it by the hand of Uriah. 15 In the letter he wrote, “Set Uriah in the forefront of the hardest fighting, and then draw back from him, that he may be struck down, and die.” 16 And as Joab was besieging the city, he assigned Uriah to the place where he knew there were valiant men. 17 And the men of the city came out and fought with Joab, and some of the servants of David among the people fell. Uriah the Hittite also died. 18 Then Joab sent and told David all the news about the fighting. 19 And he instructed the messenger, “When you have finished telling all the news about the fighting to the king, 20 then, if the king's anger rises, and if he says to you, ‘Why did you go so near the city to fight? Did you not know that they would shoot from the wall? 21 Who killed Abimelech the son of Jerubbesheth? Did not a woman cast an upper millstone on him from the wall, so that he died at Thebez? Why did you go so near the wall?' then you shall say, ‘Your servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.'” 22 So the messenger went and came and told David all that Joab had sent him to tell. 23 The messenger said to David, “The men gained an advantage over us and came out against us in the field, but we drove them back to the entrance of the gate. 24 Then the archers shot at your servants from the wall. Some of the king's servants are dead, and your servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.” 25 David said to the messenger, “Thus shall you say to Joab, ‘Do not let this matter displease you, for the sword devours now one and now another. Strengthen your attack against the city and overthrow it.' And encourage him.” 26 When the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she lamented over her husband. 27 And when the mourning was over, David sent and brought her to his house, and she became his wife and bore him a son. But the thing that David had done displeased the LORD. (ESV) Chronicles and Prophets: Ezekiel 11:14–25 Ezekiel 11:14–25 (Listen) Israel's New Heart and Spirit 14 And the word of the LORD came to me: 15 “Son of man, your brothers, even your brothers, your kinsmen,1 the whole house of Israel, all of them, are those of whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, ‘Go far from the LORD; to us this land is given for a possession.' 16 Therefore say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: Though I removed them far off among the nations, and though I scattered them among the countries, yet I have been a sanctuary to them for a while2 in the countries where they have gone.' 17 Therefore say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: I will gather you from the peoples and assemble you out of the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.' 18 And when they come there, they will remove from it all its detestable things and all its abominations. 19 And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, 20 that they may walk in my statutes and keep my rules and obey them. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God. 21 But as for those whose heart goes after their detestable things and their abominations, I will3 bring their deeds upon their own heads, declares the Lord GOD.” 22 Then the cherubim lifted up their wings, with the wheels beside them, and the glory of the God of Israel was over them. 23 And the glory of the LORD went up from the midst of the city and stood on the mountain that is on the east side of the city. 24 And the Spirit lifted me up and brought me in the vision by the Spirit of God into Chaldea, to the exiles. Then the vision that I had seen went up from me. 25 And I told the exiles all the things that the LORD had shown me.

Then he took him and healed him and sent him away. 5 And he said to them, “Which of you, having a son1 or an ox that has fallen into a well on a Sabbath day, will not immediately pull him out?” 6 And they could not reply to these things. The Parable of the Wedding Feast 7 Now he told a parable to those who were invited, when he noticed how they chose the places of honor, saying to them, 8 “When you are invited by someone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in a place of honor, lest someone more distinguished than you be invited by him, 9 and he who invited you both will come and say to you, ‘Give your place to this person,' and then you will begin with shame to take the lowest place. 10 But when you are invited, go and sit in the lowest place, so that when your host comes he may say to you, ‘Friend, move up higher.' Then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at table with you. 11 For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” The Parable of the Great Banquet 12 He said also to the man who had invited him, “When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers2 or your relatives or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return and you be repaid. 13 But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, 14 and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.” 15 When one of those who reclined at table with him heard these things, he said to him, “Blessed is everyone who will eat bread in the kingdom of God!” 16 But he said to him, “A man once gave a great banquet and invited many. 17 And at the time for the banquet he sent his servant3 to say to those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.' 18 But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, ‘I have bought a field, and I must go out and see it. Please have me excused.' 19 And another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to examine them. Please have me excused.' 20 And another said, ‘I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.' 21 So the servant came and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house became angry and said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor and crippled and blind and lame.' 22 And the servant said, ‘Sir, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.' 23 And the master said to the servant, ‘Go out to the highways and hedges and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled. 24 For I tell you,4 none of those men who were invited shall taste my banquet.'” The Cost of Discipleship 25 Now great crowds accompanied him, and he turned and said to them, 26 “If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. 27 Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple. 28 For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? 29 Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, 30 saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.' 31 Or what king, going out to encounter another king in war, will not sit down first and deliberate whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? 32 And if not, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks for terms of peace. 33 So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple. Salt Without Taste Is Worthless 34 “Salt is good, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? 35 It is of no use either for the soil or for the manure pile. It is thrown away.

Psalms and Wisdom: Psalm 50 Psalm 50 (Listen) God Himself Is Judge A Psalm of Asaph. 50 The Mighty One, God the LORD, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting.2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth. 3 Our God comes; he does not keep silence;1 before him is a devouring fire, around him a mighty tempest.4 He calls to the heavens above and to the earth, that he may judge his people:5 “Gather to me my faithful ones, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice!”6 The heavens declare his righteousness, for God himself is judge! Selah 7 “Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, I will testify against you. I am God, your God.8 Not for your sacrifices do I rebuke you; your burnt offerings are continually before me.9 I will not accept a bull from your house or goats from your folds.10 For every beast of the forest is mine, the cattle on a thousand hills.11 I know all the birds of the hills, and all that moves in the field is mine. 12 “If I were hungry, I would not tell you, for the world and its fullness are mine.13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of goats?14 Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving,2 and perform your vows to the Most High,15 and call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.” 16 But to the wicked God says: “What right have you to recite my statutes or take my covenant on your lips?17 For you hate discipline, and you cast my words behind you.18 If you see a thief, you are pleased with him, and you keep company with adulterers. 19 “You give your mouth free rein for evil, and your tongue frames deceit.20 You sit and speak against your brother; you slander your own mother's son.21 These things you have done, and I have been silent; you thought that I3 was one like yourself. But now I rebuke you and lay the charge before you. 22 “Mark this, then, you who forget God, lest I tear you apart, and there be none to deliver!23 The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me; to one who orders his way rightly I will show the salvation of God!” Footnotes  50:3 Or May our God come, and not keep silence  50:14 Or Make thanksgiving your sacrifice to God  50:21 Or that the I am (ESV) Pentateuch and History: 2 Samuel 10 2 Samuel 10 (Listen) David Defeats Ammon and Syria 10 After this the king of the Ammonites died, and Hanun his son reigned in his place. 2 And David said, “I will deal loyally1 with Hanun the son of Nahash, as his father dealt loyally with me.” So David sent by his servants to console him concerning his father. And David's servants came into the land of the Ammonites. 3 But the princes of the Ammonites said to Hanun their lord, “Do you think, because David has sent comforters to you, that he is honoring your father? Has not David sent his servants to you to search the city and to spy it out and to overthrow it?” 4 So Hanun took David's servants and shaved off half the beard of each and cut off their garments in the middle, at their hips, and sent them away. 5 When it was told David, he sent to meet them, for the men were greatly ashamed. And the king said, “Remain at Jericho until your beards have grown and then return.” 6 When the Ammonites saw that they had become a stench to David, the Ammonites sent and hired the Syrians of Beth-rehob, and the Syrians of Zobah, 20,000 foot soldiers, and the king of Maacah with 1,000 men, and the men of Tob, 12,000 men. 7 And when David heard of it, he sent Joab and all the host of the mighty men. 8 And the Ammonites came out and drew up in battle array at the entrance of the gate, and the Syrians of Zobah and of Rehob and the men of Tob and Maacah were by themselves in the open country. 9 When Joab saw that the battle was set against him both in front and in the rear, he chose some of the best men of Israel and arrayed them against the Syrians. 10 The rest of his men he put in the charge of Abishai his brother, and he arrayed them against the Ammonites. 11 And he said, “If the Syrians are too strong for me, then you shall help me, but if the Ammonites are too strong for you, then I will come and help you. 12 Be of good courage, and let us be courageous for our people, and for the cities of our God, and may the LORD do what seems good to him.” 13 So Joab and the people who were with him drew near to battle against the Syrians, and they fled before him. 14 And when the Ammonites saw that the Syrians fled, they likewise fled before Abishai and entered the city. Then Joab returned from fighting against the Ammonites and came to Jerusalem. 15 But when the Syrians saw that they had been defeated by Israel, they gathered themselves together. 16 And Hadadezer sent and brought out the Syrians who were beyond the Euphrates.2 They came to Helam, with Shobach the commander of the army of Hadadezer at their head. 17 And when it was told David, he gathered all Israel together and crossed the Jordan and came to Helam. The Syrians arrayed themselves against David and fought with him. 18 And the Syrians fled before Israel, and David killed of the Syrians the men of 700 chariots, and 40,000 horsemen, and wounded Shobach the commander of their army, so that he died there. 19 And when all the kings who were servants of Hadadezer saw that they had been defeated by Israel, they made peace with Israel and became subject to them. So the Syrians were afraid to save the Ammonites anymore. Footnotes  10:2 Or kindly; twice in this verse  10:16 Hebrew the River (ESV) Chronicles and Prophets: Ezekiel 10–11:13 Ezekiel 10–11:13 (Listen) The Glory of the Lord Leaves the Temple 10 Then I looked, and behold, on the expanse that was over the heads of the cherubim there appeared above them something like a sapphire,1 in appearance like a throne. 2 And he said to the man clothed in linen, “Go in among the whirling wheels underneath the cherubim. Fill your hands with burning coals from between the cherubim, and scatter them over the city.” And he went in before my eyes. 3 Now the cherubim were standing on the south side of the house, when the man went in, and a cloud filled the inner court. 4 And the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub to the threshold of the house, and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was filled with the brightness of the glory of the LORD. 5 And the sound of the wings of the cherubim was heard as far as the outer court, like the voice of God Almighty when he speaks. 6 And when he commanded the man clothed in linen, “Take fire from between the whirling wheels, from between the cherubim,” he went in and stood beside a wheel. 7 And a cherub stretched out his hand from between the cherubim to the fire that was between the cherubim, and took some of it and put it into the hands of the man clothed in linen, who took it and went out. 8 The cherubim appeared to have the form of a human hand under their wings. 9 And I looked, and behold, there were four wheels beside the cherubim, one beside each cherub, and the appearance of the wheels was like sparkling beryl. 10 And as for their appearance, the four had the same likeness, as if a wheel were within a wheel. 11 When they went, they went in any of their four directions2 without turning as they went, but in whatever direction the front wheel3 faced, the others followed without turning as they went. 12 And their whole body, their rims, and their spokes, their wings,4 and the wheels were full of eyes all around—the wheels that the four of them had. 13 As for the wheels, they were called in my hearing “the whirling wheels.” 14 And every one had four faces: the first face was the face of the cherub, and the second face was a human face, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle. 15 And the cherubim mounted up. These were the living creatures that I saw by the Chebar canal. 16 And when the cherubim went, the wheels went beside them. And when the cherubim lifted up their wings to mount up from the earth, the wheels did not turn from beside them. 17 When they stood still, these stood still, and when they mounted up, these mounted up with them, for the spirit of the living creatures5 was in them. 18 Then the glory of the LORD went out from the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubim. 19 And the cherubim lifted up their wings and mounted up from the earth before my eyes as they went out, with the wheels beside them. And they stood at the entrance of the east gate of the house of the LORD, and the glory of the God of Israel was over them. 20 These were the living creatures that I saw underneath the God of Israel by the Chebar canal; and I knew that they were cherubim. 21 Each had four faces, and each four wings, and underneath their wings the likeness of human hands. 22 And as for the likeness of their faces, they were the same faces whose appearance I had seen by the Chebar canal. Each one of them went straight forward. Judgment on Wicked Counselors 11 The Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the east gate of the house of the LORD, which faces east. And behold, at the entrance of the gateway there were twenty-five men. And I saw among them Jaazaniah the son of Azzur, and Pelatiah the son of Benaiah, princes of the people. 2 And he said to me, “Son of man, these are the men who devise iniquity and who give wicked counsel in this city; 3 who say, ‘The time is not near6 to build houses. This city is the cauldron, and we are the meat.' 4 Therefore prophesy against them; prophesy, O son of man.” 5 And the Spirit of the LORD fell upon me, and he said to me, “Say, Thus says the LORD: So you think, O house of Israel. For I know the things that come into your mind. 6 You have multiplied your slain in this city and have filled its streets with the slain. 7 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: Your slain whom you have laid in the midst of it, they are the meat, and this city is the cauldron, but you shall be brought out of the midst of it. 8 You have feared the sword, and I will bring the sword upon you, declares the Lord GOD. 9 And I will bring you out of the midst of it, and give you into the hands of foreigners, and execute judgments upon you. 10 You shall fall by the sword. I will judge you at the border of Israel, and you shall know that I am the LORD. 11 This city shall not be your cauldron, nor shall you be the meat in the midst of it. I will judge you at the border of Israel, 12 and you shall know that I am the LORD. For you have not walked in my statutes, nor obeyed my rules, but have acted according to the rules of the nations that are around you.” 13 And it came to pass, while I was prophesying, that Pelatiah the son of Benaiah died. Then I fell down on my face and cried out with a loud voice and said, “Ah, Lord GOD! Will you make a full end of the remnant of Israel?” Footnotes  10:1 Or lapis lazuli  10:11 Hebrew to their four sides  10:11 Hebrew the head  10:12 Or their whole body, their backs, their hands, and their wings  10:17 Or spirit of life  11:3 Or Is not the time near . . . ? (ESV) Gospels and Epistles: Luke 13:10–35 Luke 13:10–35 (Listen) A Woman with a Disabling Spirit 10 Now he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 11 And behold, there was a woman who had had a disabling spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not fully straighten herself. 12 When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said to her, “Woman, you are freed from your disability.” 13 And he laid his hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and she glorified God. 14 But the ruler of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, said to the people, “There are six days in which work ought to be done. Come on those days and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day.” 15 Then the Lord answered him, “You hypocrites! Does not each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the manger and lead it away to water it? 16 And ought not this woman, a daughter of Abraham whom Satan bound for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?” 17 As he said these things, all his adversaries were put to shame, and all the people rejoiced at all the glorious things that were done by him. The Mustard Seed and the Leaven 18 He said therefore, “What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? 19 It is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his garden, and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.” 20 And again he said, “To what shall I compare the kingdom of God? 21 It is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, until it was all leavened.” The Narrow Door 22 He went on his way through towns and villages, teaching and journeying toward Jerusalem. 23 And someone said to him, “Lord, will those who are saved be few?” And he said to them, 24 “Strive to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. 25 When once the master of the house has risen and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, open to us,' then he will answer you, ‘I do not know where you come from.' 26 Then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.' 27 But he will say, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you come from. Depart from me, all you workers of evil!' 28 In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God but you yourselves cast out. 29 And people will come from east and west, and from north and south, and recline at table in the kingdom of God. 30 And behold, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last.” Lament over Jerusalem 31 At that very hour some Pharisees came and said to him, “Get away from here, for Herod wants to kill you.” 32 And he said to them, “Go and tell that fox, ‘Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I finish my course. 33 Nevertheless, I must go on my way today and tomorrow and the day following, for it cannot be that a prophet should perish away from Jerusalem.' 34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing! 35 Behold, your house is forsaken. And I tell you, you will not see me until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!'” (ESV)

Faction Cannot Prevail (12) (audio) David Eells - 9/6/23 I was told by the Lord to declass all that we know. Some of these first few minutes might be borderline for teens and pre-teens so if you like they can leave the room. The Angels told us that in the future we would be speaking to one another in dangerous territory by the Spirit. Emails and texts and other physical forms of communication are hacked by governments and others and are dangerous. This is true if you are a Christian missionary among an unfavorable religious society. The Lord impressed me to practice this. I went to our head UBM angel Baruch and asked if we could talk this way. We did. So this morphed into total communication between us. This involved either spoken words or thoughts. All I had to do was address him by name and the angel and this would open a line of communication between us that was totally natural like you were sitting in the same room. This morphed into not even calling on the angel just speaking or thinking communication with the angels. I saw a vision of Eve with different colored hair and it was straight. Another had a dream of her looking the same way. I asked Eve if she looked like this and had an alias and she said, yes. This way she could work for Kevin, whom she was completely submissive to because of the demons he had put on her; Including witchcraft, voodoo, slander, lust, fornication, and adultery so she would do her job for them. You say, David why would you not cast these demons off of her. We have in the past but now the Lord is bringing her through this whole experience to humble her and to be an advocate for those taken advantage of by filthy satanists. The Spirit continued my education and experience regarding what seemed like natural communications. I asked Eve some questions that would have been dangerous for her to answer, which I will explain later. She answered them because the Spirit overruled her demons. I asked her “Are they farming you out to other men besides them.” She said yes, so I said how many? She said she couldn't say. But Baruch, who was standing by, interjected “with 12 men”. She then said this was correct. I said in one week, no wonder you say you are tired. I asked are you doing this from your apartment? She said, no, we have a building. I asked are the other girls also in that building? Baruch said they have 14. She said, yes, but she could have no communication with them. To say the least, this sickened me that satanists all over the world are trafficking men, women, children and babies. I asked, are Kevin and Eddie making a lot of money off of you all. She said, Yes. I said are your customers men of importance who would defend Kevin if he got caught trafficking women and she said some of them are. Are some cops, lawyers, judges, politicians, type people, she said she believes so but does not know their names. I thought, good, that is safer for her. Then I asked, are the rooms equipped with hidden cameras and sound recorders, She said, yes. This is Epstein Island all over again and all over the world. They recorded the politicians, big business, judges, etc. and blackmailed them to take over the countries. I said, Lord if I declass this it will be dangerous for them. These men do not want to be known. I heard that we are so close to the end of this it won't make any difference. I asked for 3 heads to confirm this and got them. Also Vanessa received from the Lord, “No weapon formed against Eve shall prosper.” I believe this is for the other elect women also. Just to let Kevin and Eddie and all the satanists know, be careful with these women, men, and their children you have captured because like Trump, “We have it all.” Oh, you think not? These angels see and know everything and they are talking to more people than me. God was speaking to me so I said to Baruch, The problem is that these sinners are enjoying this too much to stop because of the demons they have received. Do you think ED and symptoms of disease would fix that? He said, yes, and he would take care of it. (They all would know there was just one common denominator to cause disease, Kevin and Eddie, since they insist on molesting them all.) (A few days before this, I asked God and did a test. I was talking to Eve and she said kind of frustrated, “something is wrong”. I said, Is it ED? She said how did you know that?) Shortly after Baruch released this larger judgment, Michael had crazy things happening to his computer and phone at the same time, so he rebuked it and it left. So we knew it was retaliation and we bound all retaliation against our body. I think it is Mordecai and Esther's cancelling the Jews curse with their edict and putting it instead on Haman and his sons and people as we just studied. Seducer Preying On Young Women Anna Stewart 9/1/23 (David's notes in red) I had the following dream last night. I don't know if I'm representing other young women we know about who were stalked in the same way. I dreamt that I was a teenager in high school. The high school campus was at my childhood home. It seemed that I was 16 years old. (Predators, Sixteen is still an adolescent teen and not an adult.) There was a scene where I was on the roof of our old pump house, chipping away and scraping off years of accumulated gunk from the rooftop. (The rooftop represents covering and protection.) As I removed the blackened gunk (sins) I was surprised to find that there was honey underneath. (The Lord's cleansing process to bring restoration to their personal fountains of living water for Eve/the women. Through our prayers, we are “pumping” the Words of Life into Eve and the other captured women.) Pro 24:13 My son, eat thou honey, for it is good; And the droppings of the honeycomb,which are sweet to thy taste: Psa 119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! The scene changed back to the campus and Kevin was there and he was 35 in the dream. He seemed like a nice man. It seemed like he and I had known each other in the past. (Because we used to be in fellowship as brethren. Both she and her husband had dreams that Kevin molested her. He broke into their phone and emailed me from there.) He was very nice to me, and it seemed like he was in love with me. He was following me around but not pushing the issue of wanting to talk to me. I wasn't attracted to him, justattracted to the idea of him loving me. (The spirits of lust Kevin sent out use the emotions and make one “feel” like they “want” him but are deceptive. He had a spirit of seduction and acting.) But I had this subconscious feeling that something wasn't right; it was like I knew that a 35-year-old man pursuing a 16-year-old should be a huge red flag, (Being only 16 years of age is considered “below the age of consent for sexual contact.” Knowing the difference between right and wrong, having our senses exercised by the Word. Heb 5:14 But solid food is for fullgrown men, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern good and evil.) but I couldn't quite get my mind around the fact that he was just lusting after me—it was like I was blinded because of my desire to be loved. (The spirits of lust blind the young by using the emotions and desires for love and confuse the mind.) I wanted to walk away from him, but he seemed so nice, and like he really cared about me. I subconsciously knew that he wasn't as he seemed, but it was like my knowledge of who he was had been taken away. I knew he really wasn't a good man, but I couldn't remember why. (The factious send witchcraft spirits of “confusion” doubt and unbelief.) I was really struggling between wanting to be loved by him and wanting to walk away and not look back. There was this strange pull trying to draw me to him. With my reasoning I wanted nothing to do with him, but my emotions were being manipulated towards him. (We bind all their witchcraft of control and manipulation to seduce and capture other women.) Kevin's truck was a pretty blue (a righteous facade). The scene changed and I was standing next to Kevin's truck and David and Michael were there. David was smiling and kind but urging me to flee from Kevin. (We must resist the devil and all his tactics of deceptive charm and lustful seduction. 2Co 2:11 that no advantage may be gained over us by Satan: for we are not ignorant of his devices.) He was so calm but told me I should flee like it was for my life and to go where Kevin couldn't find me. (We are hidden and abiding in Christ.) I knew it would be hard to flee because he was always hanging around close by. (Remain fully armored with the Word (Eph 6:10-20) and continue to bind the demons operating through their witchcraft and curses and loose the angels.) Then I saw a GPS map with my vehicle, driving this way and that, trying to flee in unpredictable ways. I saw a line behind mine that was Kevin's vehicle following my trail. He was far behind me, yet he always caught up close to where I was. I suddenly realized that he was actually stalking me and just how creepy he was. There was no way for him to know where I was at, yet he was always able to follow me, short-cutting close to where I was every time.(Philip had an app on his phone so he always knew where his wife was even when she ran away one time. We bind all Kevin's spying and stalking spirits and declare they are all null and void. We cast down the powers and principality operating through him in Jesus name. I caught him stalking other other women.) End of dream. I had a dream a couple years ago where Kevin was in a blue truck spying on us. There was a fire in the house where we met, but Kevin ended up fleeing for his life after being shot at by David who was target shooting into the field where Kevin was spying from. I wanted to send this to you as I thought it might be some direction for warfare for Eve and the other women. A Word David Timoshchuk 6/2/23 (David's notes in red) Last night I was led to pray for all the persecutors and family and I kept repeating, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do." Then this morning while preparing the jalapeños, these words kept repeating in my head, "Kevin and Eddie have fallen by their own swords." And shortly after, I heard the words, "It is finished." Psa 37:12-15 The wicked plotteth against the just, And gnasheth upon him with his teeth. 13 The Lord will laugh at him; For he seeth that his day is coming. 14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To slay such as are upright in the way. 15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, And their bows shall be broken. Dream of Judgement Coming Alenna Timoshchuk 8/30/23 (David's notes in red) I dreamt that I was in the Walmart parking lot with my mom and daughters. We had set up camping chairs in the back and were there to watch a meteor shower and to see a sign in the sky. While we were waiting, I saw chaos happening all around me. I knew that everyone was boycotting the grocery stores and anyone who was weak and would enter to get groceries for their family, the people boycotting would attack them. Some were even lighting their cars on fire to scare off anyone else from trying to shop. I thought that I needed to wake up and tell my husband my dream but then slipped into another one. I was with my husband in my parents' house and my girls were asleep in another room. I started sharing my dream with him and noticed a massive storm approaching. I knew we needed to be in a safe room during the storm, so I went to get my daughters and I saw that my oldest had woken up and gone outside and was playing with a cousin. I ran out and got her and told the other little girl to run home because a huge storm is coming and the wind had already picked up to really strong winds. My little cousin excitedly asked me if we were going to heaven, and I told her not just yet. Then again, I started thinking that I needed to tell my husband my dream but that I need to get a verse by faith at random first and two places from the Bible popped into my mind Matthew 11:22 and Mark 11:13. I had no idea what these verses were but I knew the Lord put them in mind. Then I woke up so I could write them down before I'd forget. Mat 11:22 But I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment, than for you. Mar 11:13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find anything thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for it was not the season of figs. I felt that this dream was telling me the Lord's judgement is coming very quickly. Tsunami Judgement Coming Tianna Fire 2/8/23 (David's notes in red) I dreamt we were with the local brethren, and we all lived next to each other in a community. A warning came from God in an audible voice, and He said, "A tsunami is coming." (Tsunamis are destructive surges of water that can hit land. This could represent a spiritual tsunami bringing judgement on the wicked. 1Jn 4:17 Herein is love made perfect with us, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as he is, even so are we in this world.) The brethren were all cheering that God had given warning this time. The brethren spoke about the last time there was a giant tsunami and storm, but God didn't tell them it was coming and that it had wiped out everyone except the UBM brethren. (God gives us warnings of judgments so we can be ready ourselves and warn others so they can repent from sin and turn to the Lord. Many judgements will wipe out the wicked.) Last time everyone was in the water and having to tread over all the wavesand all the brethren were gathered near each other in the water. (The Body of Christ needs to stay together abiding in the water, which is the Word of God and not let faction separate them.) It was so dark and there were storms and vicious waves and for three days they had to do this. (The storms and treading the waves of water represent the trials and tribulations we go through being tried by the Word in our death of the old man. The three days represent the time Jesus was dead in the tomb.) Because of their faith and strength in Christ, they were preserved, but all the other people were taken out by the tsunami. (We need to obey the Lord and walk the crucified life of death to self. When we do, we save our souls.) Mat 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved. Joh 12:25 He that loveth his life loseth it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. I asked some of the sisters how they were able to tread on the water with their three children each and a few of the children were able to tread themselves or the children were strapped to their parents with a carrier. (Parents are to teach their children the Word and how to walk by faith so they know how to go through trials too. Deu 11:19 And ye shall teach them your children, talking of them, when thou sittest in thy house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. Pro 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And even when he is old he will not depart from it.) I honestly had much fear of maybe having to tread in dark open water and I was worried about sharks. But the brethren said because God has warned us this time, we won't have to do that. (When we go through our trials in faith and obedience and overcome them, we don't have to go through them again and again.) We all grabbed what we needed and walked to the highest point on the biggest hill in the town. (Representing our walk to get to Mt Zion and be in Jerusalem, who is the Bride.) When we got to the top there was a giant treethat we all climbed and got on top. (This giant tree represents the Tree of Life, Who is Jesus. Pro 3:18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her:[Wisdom] And happy is every one that retaineth her. Rev 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches. To him that overcometh, to him will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of God. Rev 22:14-15 Blessed are they that wash their robes, that they may have the right to come to the tree of life, and may enter in by the gates into the city.15 Without are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the fornicators, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and every one that loveth and maketh a lie. Psa 92:12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm-tree: He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.) We could see the view over the whole town and the water and there was a giant storm forming and waves rushing. (This giant storm forming could be DS planned attacks as well as the tribulation period, which is soon to start.)We then saw other people from the town running to the hill to try and get up high. Then giant waves started rushing through the town and everyone not on the hill was washed away. (Many people are unaware of the coming storm. We need to be abiding in Christ now, dwelling in heavenly places which is by faith in His promises. Eph 2:5-6 even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace have ye been saved), 6 and raised us up with him, and made us to sit with him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus:) Some other people were on the hill and started running to the top. But then another giant wave crashed on the hill and everyone not on the tree was taken out. The storm lasted about 5 days but we were all content praising God from the tree and again UBM brethren were the only ones left alive from the town. This is Our Fathers Heart Debbie Fenske 8/6/23 I finished writing down what I was hearing from the Lord, I got hesitant about it. I was thinking about using coins for confirmation. So I asked the Lord, “Father, shall I blog this?” And Father said, “Be led by My Spirit. I simply said, “I know, Lord.” Then He said to me, “What did you hear? What did you feel?” I told Father, “I heard you speaking, and I felt you heart.” I received nothing back from the Lord then, and knew that I was being led by His Spirit, and that I had been hearing His heart. I was laying on my couch listening to this constant rolling thunder. It was beautiful. So then I heard: “Do you hear the thunder? I said, “Yes Lord. It's beautiful.” He said, “So is My voice that is continually speaking. I will not stop until all who I have called to Myself have heard My call. But, woe to those who have heard, but will not respond to Me. For them is coming tremendous woe. And there is much woe coming to my sheep who have become lost, and do not want to find their way back, ignoring any of My guidance. They have been lost too long, and no longer have a conscience. The day is nigh that will be woe to them! And woe to those who I have been calling to Myself, and out of My great mercy for them I have sent my ambassadors, My witnesses to them. And some of them only like the message they here. And some only like the thought of a life walking with Me. But, woe to them! For I almost had them, but they too, wait too long, and they let themselves grow cold to the slightest drawing they feel from me, to My slightest call of their name. Though they hear, they reject. Their life in this world is much too important. They are idols unto themselves, and will not be freed. So I let them go. Woe to them! But, there is glory coming! Great revival is coming that will bring back My lost but tender ones who have hearts still tender towards Me.” I felt to ask Father, “Lord, what is it you want to tell us to do?” “I tell you, and all, stop wasting time praying for those who by their lives, and their reactions to My Son, and the teachings they once knew, and embraced, but now have rejected. For I say, I have already rejected them.” So then I was thinking to myself, “Well, how do we know who those would be?” Father heard my thoughts and said, “Listen to My voice. You will know. Pray, instead, for the multitudes ready to embrace Me and My kingdom through the mighty Word preached from My Sons who I will fully dwell in, and the mighty signs, and wonders they will perform. Right now, see the glory! I know those who are mine. And I know those who never have been mine, and those who are mine no longer. Very soon all who I have chosen will be Mine, bearing My name. I will move in mighty ways for the final bringing in of My precious true Israel. This mighty move is close, and you believe it is close. But I tell you that it is yet closer than you think. Be busy preparing yourself in Me. My sons and daughters, I see that there is still much of this world in you that you need to let go of. Have you been understanding what I have been saying, what you have already been hearing? Do you understand the shortness of time? Are you being moved by the woes of the people of this world? I say, examine yourselves, and be moved by the state of your own heart. I say this is the time to let go. This is a call to you, My people. This is the time to be prepared. Put off any love you have for this world. Put off this slothfullness that I see! Be prepared. Be ready! Knock Out Punch Prophecy Dr. Patricia Green (David's notes in red) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1A1TDyzRQLE Today's video is called the Knockout Punch prophecy, which the Lord gave me on July 22, 2023. So, I just want to read what was given to me. As I sat down to receive this message, the very first words that I heard was, “Knockout Punch.” And the Lord said, “I am delivering the knockout blow to the worldwide elites who have controlled the politics, the financial world and the pharmaceutical industry; and yes, I say industry because that is what it is. By no means does Big Pharma have the interest of making people well or healing them. Just the opposite. They create drugs to make people dependent on them so they can line their pockets with trillions of dollars. The Lord said, “I have put my glove on and with one blow I will remove the global elites who hide in the shadows and control the people, says the Lord.” The Lord said, “I say enough. I have had enough of their wickedness. I have had enough of their deceit and control and manipulation. I have had enough of them controlling the wealth. For with My knockout punch, I will strip them of their wealth, which is built on a false system and layers of lies.” Patricia says, now I find this part quite amusing. The Lord said, “The wealthy elites will, be like, the emperor who wore no clothes, in this children's storybook called, The Emperor's New Clothes. It was a shyster who convinced the emperor that he was weaving him a beautiful robe, but in fact there was no robe; it was imaginary. He further convinced the emperor to parade through the city in his glorious robe that did not exist. (This could represent the fake Biden presidency, who is only a puppet, along with all the political parties, who are an “imaginary” show, and they will all be exposed and declassed.) This is the same fate as the global elites, says the Lord.” “It was the common people who revealed to the emperor that he was naked and without any royal apparel. It will be the common people who will strip the elites of their fine apparel, their riches and their properties; and the elites will be naked and exposed, says the Lord of host.” (The prayers of the righteous to bring down the DS globalist, satanist bunch. We continue to send the angels to drain the swamp!) “How, do you say, can this happen?” “Because they are so powerful and so rich and so hidden.” But the Lord says, “But I say, nothing is impossible with Me, says the Lord of hosts.” “How could the entire army of Pharaoh and Pharaoh himself be swallowed up in the Red Sea, and yet I did that, says the Lord.” “No one in Israel could have imagined that their enemies against them could be here one minute and the next minute forever gone. Forever annihilated. I Am that same God. I created the earth and everything in it. It all belongs to Me, says the Lord.” “The heavens are My throne, and the earth is My footstool.” “Who is man that I Am mindful of him, says the Lord.” “I say man is My creation and I will not tolerate the altering of men, women and children. For that is the work of the enemies to try and improve and alter and change My creation. No one knows My mind or My power except My Son. So, if you want a glimpse into My thoughts and a glimpse of My power, come to My Son and ask Him to reveal Me; to reveal Me, Your Heavenly Father. For I AM Almighty, all powerful, all knowing and ever-present. I AM the Great I AM, and I AM, has spoken.” “Now go My children and declare My words in this earthly realm. Declare all that I have spoken and already given to My true prophets; for when you declare My words, you are taking your spiritual authority on this.” Luke 10:19 Behold, I give you authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power on the enemy, and nothing shall by any means on you. The Lord said, “Use your voice, My children; lift up your voice in one accord for your voice has power, My power, says the Lord.” Our Heavenly Protection Marie Kelton 8/11/22 (David's notes in red) I had an open vision of the Lord sitting next to me. He said, “Eat from the hand of God.” He then opened his hand and I saw food in it. Joh 6:51 I am the living bread which came down out of heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever: yea and the bread which I will give is my flesh, for the life of the world. Pro 9:4-5 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: As for him that is void of understanding, she saith to him, 5Come, eat ye of my bread, And drink of the wine which I have mingled. I then saw two big angels standing by the side door with spears in their hands in the living room. I was asking the Lord about the demons that attack my mind all the time. One of the angels walked up to me and I could hear the clacking of his armor. I knew he was there to help me. I asked him to help with spirits attacking me. Heb 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to do service for the sake of them that shall inherit salvation? Mat 7:7-8 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Joh 14:14 If ye shall ask anything in my name, that will I do. I then saw a huge demon to my right. The angel took his spear and stabbed the demon with it. When the angel pulled out the spear, I saw black liquid on it. I then saw two angels walking with a demon in between them. They were holding it up. The angels then stopped, and the demon was kneeling. Php 2:9-11 Wherefore also God highly exalted him, and gave unto him the name which is above every name; 10 that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things on earth and things under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Eph 6:12 For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world-rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Col 2:15 having despoiled the principalities and the powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Then I saw the Lord walk up and take a sword and cut the demon's head off. Escaping Evil Anonymous 12/12/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamt that I was a child and living in an orphanage, in the middle of nowhere. There were many other children and workers there. (This represents the children who have lost their families in the DS wars and earthquakes, and hurricane destruction causing them to be placed in orphanages and foster homes; many of them are funded by the governments and used to traffic children by the satanists. In the recent event in Maui, there are over 2,000 children missing.) A group of the children had run away from the orphanage to the forest because some of the workers there had been sexually abusing children. (Representing the satanists and sexual perversion and pedophilia in the DS and the ungodly.) NENT Gen 6:11 And the earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. I wanted to leave too, because I didn't want anything to do with that. So, I and two other children planned to leave. (Lot and his 2 daughters escaped Sodom. NENT Gen 19:17 And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the Plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.) It was lunchtime and all the children were playing in the playground. My friends came up to me and told me they were going to run away right now. I said that I haven't packed my bag yet. They said they would go out of the school and wait in the forest for me, and they ran off and I went into my room to pack my bag. To get to my room I had to walk past one of the men that had been abusing children. I was praying in my heart that he wouldn't notice me, as if I was invisible, and he wouldn't see me. (NENT Col 3:3 For ye died, and your life is hid with the Christ in God.) I went into my room and packed everything I could in my bag including water. I was making a lot of noise trying to find everything quickly. I also was afraid because I was alone in the room and not only was I scared of getting caught trying to escape but I feared him trying to do something evil to me. I had the bag almost fully packed, when the man walked into the room, and he grabbed something from a desk. He walked straight past me and couldn't even see me even though I was in plain sight. (God answered the prayer to be made invisible and not be seen! NENT Luk 4:30 But HE passing through the midst of them went his way.) I escaped and ran off to join my friends in the woods. We spent the next few days trying to survive there, avoiding animals, trying to keep warm at night and not give in to fear of the scary animal sounds we heard. Also, we had a lot of trouble trying to find food and not going the wrong way. (NENT Rev 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath there a place prepared of God, that there they may nourish her a thousand two hundred threescore days.) We honestly had no idea where we were going. All we had ever known was this orphanage, so we had no idea what to expect because we never had contact with the outside world. (NENT Heb 11:8 By faith Abraham, when called, obeyed to go out unto a place which he was to receive for inheritance, and went out, not knowing whither he was going. 2Co 5:7 (for we walk through faith, not through sight.)) After about three days of being in the forest we found a house hidden in the woods. No one was home so we snuck in through a window and went through the house, took some food and we went and hid upstairs in a bedroom that didn't look like it was regularly used. We heard someone walking around the house and we knew someone lived there. We tried our best to stay hidden, we wanted to stay here because it was better than being in the woods, especially at night. And we could secretly go find food in the house when we felt the person wasn't there, or when we thought they were asleep. We stayed in this room for a little while, but we ended up going into the attic. We hadn't been in the attic long before thiselderly man came up and found us. He was very kind, caring and loving, which is something we hadn't experienced before. (The elderly man represents our Heavenly Father, or it may represent Jesus.) When we were in the orphanage all the children were always in fear of the workers and only had other children to console in. The man let us stay in his place for a while, feeding us and talking with us and he built up a trust with us and we confessed where we were from and why we ran away. (We all start out as children and learn to trust the Lord. By His grace we can have a healthy relationship with Him, where we can be nurtured and grow.) He told us that there had been many children before us that had run away for the same reasons. That he had his house here for a long time and that he had helped many other children in our situation. He told us there was a man, who ran away as a child, and that he had taken him in and raised him. Now this man lives in another town, and he always tries to help children in any way he can, because he understands and had experienced the same evil abuse as a child. The elderly man called him, and he said that he and his wife will take us in and raise us as their own. They came and picked us up, and we went to live in their house, and they were very friendly, gentle and understanding. Then I woke up. Declass The Angels told us that in the future we would be speaking to one another in dangerous territory by the Spirit. Emails and texts and other physical forms of communication are hacked by governments and others and are dangerous. This is true if you are a Christian missionary among an unfavorable religious society. The Lord impressed me to practice this. I went to our head UBM angel Baruch and asked if he could send a message to Eve and he said yes. He did and received a word back which Baruch gave to me. Then I received understanding that this was too primitive. So this morphed into total communication between us. This involved either spoken words or thoughts. All I had to do was address her by name and the angel would open a line of communication between us that was totally natural like you were sitting in the same room. This morphed into not even calling on the angel just speaking or thinking communication which was just like my former communication with the angels. I saw a vision of Eve with different colored hair and it was straight. Another had a dream of her looking the same. I asked Eve if she had an alias and she said yes. This way she could work for Kevin, whom she was completely submissive to because of the demons he had put on her; Including witchcraft, voodoo, slander, lust, fornication, and adultery so she would do her job for them. You say, David why would you not cast these demons off of her. We have in the past but now the Lord is bringing her through this whole experience to humble her and to be an advocate for those taken advantage of by filthy satanists. The Spirit continued my education and experience regarding what seemed like natural communications. I asked Eve some questions that would have been dangerous for her to answer, which I will explain later. She answered them because the Spirit overruled her demons. I asked her “Are they farming you out to other men besides them.” She said yes, so I said how many? She said she couldn't say. But Baruch, who was standing by, interjected “with 12 men”. She then said this was correct. I said in one week, no wonder you say you are tired. I asked are you doing this from your apartment? She said, no, we have a building. I asked are the other girls also in that building? Baruch said they have 14. She said, yes, but she could have no communication with them. To say the least, this sickened me that satanists all over the world are trafficking men, women, children and babies. I asked, are Kevin and Eddie making a lot of money off of you all. She said, Yes. I said are your customers men of importance who would defend Kevin if he got caught trafficking women and she said some of them are. Are some cops, lawyers, judges, politicians, type people, she said she believes so but does not know their names. I thought, good, that is safer for her. Then I asked, are the rooms equipped with hidden cameras and sound recorders, She said yes. This is Epstein Island all over again and all over the world. They recorded the politicians, big business, judges, etc. and blackmailed them to take over the countries. I said, Lord if I declass this it will be dangerous for them. These men do not want to be known. I heard that we are so close to the end of this it won't make any difference. I asked for 3 heads to confirm this and got them. Also Vanessa received from the Lord, “No weapon formed against Eve shall prosper.” I believe this is for the other elect women also. Just to let Kevin and Eddie and all the satanists know, be careful with these women, men, and their children you have captured because like Trump, “We have it all.” Oh, you think not? These angels know everything and they are talking to more people than me. God was speaking to me so I said to Baruch, The problem is that these sinners are enjoying this too much to stop because of the demons they have received. Do you think ED and symptoms of disease would fix that? He said, yes, and he would take care of it. (They all would know there was just one common denominator, Kevin and Eddie, since they insist on molesting them all.) Shortly after this Michael had crazy things happening to his computer and phone so he rebuked it and it left. So we knew it was retaliation and we bound all retaliation against our body. I think it is Mordecai and Esther's cancelling the Jews curse with their edict and putting it instead on Haman and his sons and people as we just studied.
Boil water notices will remain in force throughout Queenstown, until the council can prove it's filtering protozoa, or parasites, out of the town's supply. Drinking water for around 45,000 people is drawn from Lake Wakatipu. National rules require protozoa barriers - Queenstown's Two Mile water treatment plant doesn't have one. The Kelvin Heights water treatment plant does, but there are doubts about whether it's working. Taumata Arowai, issued Queenstown's Council with a compliance notice yesterday - and the council has a deadline of 5 o'clock Thursday to respond. Steve Taylor from Taumata Arowai the national water regulator spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.

Jason and Will Denis of the Flippin' SoFlo podcast discuss various aspects of the current real estate market and the impact of interest rates and inflation. They emphasize the importance of looking at data rather than getting caught up in fear-based news and offer insights into why the real estate market remains strong despite economic challenges. They mention that low-interest rates have led to affordable mortgage payments for many homeowners, making it unlikely for a real estate crash to occur without distressed sellers in mass quantities. Additionally, they discuss inventory levels and how they affect the housing market, emphasizing the resilience of real estate as an asset class. They talk about potential returns on investment in income properties, with projected returns ranging from 20% to 30%. Jason emphasizes that income property is a historically proven asset class with multi-dimensional earning potential. #RealEstate #HousingMarket #InterestRates #Inflation #Investment #IncomeProperties #Returns Key Takeaways: 1:22 It's all about inflation: Data not drama 3:41 News versus noise 4:33 Inventory levels and the sink metaphor 12:24 Wanted for an RE crash: distressed sellers 14:02 Credit scores and what it means to the housing market 16:01 Population and immigration: Demographics is destiny 18:18 Massive housing construction 23:31 The ‘Perma bull' of the housing market 26:15 Jason's crystal ball 32:04 Minimize exposure to ‘fear porn' Follow Jason on TWITTER, INSTAGRAM & LINKEDIN Twitter.com/JasonHartmanROI Instagram.com/jasonhartman1/ Linkedin.com/in/jasonhartmaninvestor/ Call our Investment Counselors at: 1-800-HARTMAN (US) or visit: https://www.jasonhartman.com/ Free Class: Easily get up to $250,000 in funding for real estate, business or anything else: http://JasonHartman.com/Fund CYA Protect Your Assets, Save Taxes & Estate Planning: http://JasonHartman.com/Protect Get wholesale real estate deals for investment or build a great business – Free Course: https://www.jasonhartman.com/deals Special Offer from Ron LeGrand: https://JasonHartman.com/Ron Free Mini-Book on Pandemic Investing: https://www.PandemicInvesting.com

Duke football looks to remain undefeated on the season when they host Northwestern tomorrow at Wallace Wade Stadium at 3:30 p.m. Mike Elko and the Blue Devils are looking to move to 3-0 against a program that could target Elko as their next head coach. Tim Donnelly and Dennis Cox discussed how this is an important game for both programs. Also, Wake Forest looks to get a win on the road against a program that has given ACC schools trouble in recent years. Can quarterback Mitch Griffis lead the Demon Deacons to a win against Old Dominion tomorrow?
The Miami Dolphins are halfway through a two-game road trip to begin the 2023 NFL season, and next up is a divisional battle with the New England Patriots. Two road wins against AFC opponents could help the Dolphins create some early-season separation in the standings. Nothing is ever that simple when coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots are involved. However, this isn't your parent's Patriots team led by Tom Brady and Miami quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is undefeated when facing New England. After throwing for more than 400 yards last week, will coach Mike McDaniel decide to take to the air or lean more on Raheem Mostert and the rushing attack? Teams expect to be healthy early in the season, but that's not the case for the Patriots. Two of the team's linemen missed two days of practice with a concussion, and cornerback Jonathan Jones, who was not on the injury report Wednesday, was not seen at training on Friday. While coach McDaniel said he wants to run the football more, it could be bombs away against a weakened New England secondary.

With family: 2 Samuel 11; 2 Corinthians 4 2 Samuel 11 (Listen) David and Bathsheba 11 In the spring of the year, the time when kings go out to battle, David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel. And they ravaged the Ammonites and besieged Rabbah. But David remained at Jerusalem. 2 It happened, late one afternoon, when David arose from his couch and was walking on the roof of the king's house, that he saw from the roof a woman bathing; and the woman was very beautiful. 3 And David sent and inquired about the woman. And one said, “Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?” 4 So David sent messengers and took her, and she came to him, and he lay with her. (Now she had been purifying herself from her uncleanness.) Then she returned to her house. 5 And the woman conceived, and she sent and told David, “I am pregnant.” 6 So David sent word to Joab, “Send me Uriah the Hittite.” And Joab sent Uriah to David. 7 When Uriah came to him, David asked how Joab was doing and how the people were doing and how the war was going. 8 Then David said to Uriah, “Go down to your house and wash your feet.” And Uriah went out of the king's house, and there followed him a present from the king. 9 But Uriah slept at the door of the king's house with all the servants of his lord, and did not go down to his house. 10 When they told David, “Uriah did not go down to his house,” David said to Uriah, “Have you not come from a journey? Why did you not go down to your house?” 11 Uriah said to David, “The ark and Israel and Judah dwell in booths, and my lord Joab and the servants of my lord are camping in the open field. Shall I then go to my house, to eat and to drink and to lie with my wife? As you live, and as your soul lives, I will not do this thing.” 12 Then David said to Uriah, “Remain here today also, and tomorrow I will send you back.” So Uriah remained in Jerusalem that day and the next. 13 And David invited him, and he ate in his presence and drank, so that he made him drunk. And in the evening he went out to lie on his couch with the servants of his lord, but he did not go down to his house. 14 In the morning David wrote a letter to Joab and sent it by the hand of Uriah. 15 In the letter he wrote, “Set Uriah in the forefront of the hardest fighting, and then draw back from him, that he may be struck down, and die.” 16 And as Joab was besieging the city, he assigned Uriah to the place where he knew there were valiant men. 17 And the men of the city came out and fought with Joab, and some of the servants of David among the people fell. Uriah the Hittite also died. 18 Then Joab sent and told David all the news about the fighting. 19 And he instructed the messenger, “When you have finished telling all the news about the fighting to the king, 20 then, if the king's anger rises, and if he says to you, ‘Why did you go so near the city to fight? Did you not know that they would shoot from the wall? 21 Who killed Abimelech the son of Jerubbesheth? Did not a woman cast an upper millstone on him from the wall, so that he died at Thebez? Why did you go so near the wall?' then you shall say, ‘Your servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.'” 22 So the messenger went and came and told David all that Joab had sent him to tell. 23 The messenger said to David, “The men gained an advantage over us and came out against us in the field, but we drove them back to the entrance of the gate. 24 Then the archers shot at your servants from the wall. Some of the king's servants are dead, and your servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.” 25 David said to the messenger, “Thus shall you say to Joab, ‘Do not let this matter displease you, for the sword devours now one and now another. Strengthen your attack against the city and overthrow it.' And encourage him.” 26 When the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she lamented over her husband. 27 And when the mourning was over, David sent and brought her to his house, and she became his wife and bore him a son. But the thing that David had done displeased the LORD. (ESV) 2 Corinthians 4 (Listen) The Light of the Gospel 4 Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God,1 we do not lose heart. 2 But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice2 cunning or to tamper with God's word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone's conscience in the sight of God. 3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 4 In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants3 for Jesus' sake. 6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Treasure in Jars of Clay 7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. 8 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; 10 always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. 11 For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12 So death is at work in us, but life in you. 13 Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, “I believed, and so I spoke,” we also believe, and so we also speak, 14 knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence. 15 For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God. 16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self4 is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. 17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

A Psalm of David. 62 For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation.2 He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken. 3 How long will all of you attack a man to batter him, like a leaning wall, a tottering fence?4 They only plan to thrust him down from his high position. They take pleasure in falsehood. They bless with their mouths, but inwardly they curse. Selah 5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him.6 He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken.7 On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. 8 Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. Selah 9 Those of low estate are but a breath; those of high estate are a delusion; in the balances they go up; they are together lighter than a breath.10 Put no trust in extortion; set no vain hopes on robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart on them. 11 Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this: that power belongs to God,12 and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love. For you will render to a man according to his work. My Soul Thirsts for You A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. 63 O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory.3 Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.4 So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands. 5 My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,6 when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night;7 for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.8 My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me. 9 But those who seek to destroy my life shall go down into the depths of the earth;10 they shall be given over to the power of the sword; they shall be a portion for jackals.11 But the king shall rejoice in God; all who swear by him shall exult, for the mouths of liars will be stopped. (ESV) Ezekiel 18 (Listen) The Soul Who Sins Shall Die 18 The word of the LORD came to me: 2 “What do you1 mean by repeating this proverb concerning the land of Israel, ‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge'? 3 As I live, declares the Lord GOD, this proverb shall no more be used by you in Israel. 4 Behold, all souls are mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is mine: the soul who sins shall die. 5 “If a man is righteous and does what is just and right—6 if he does not eat upon the mountains or lift up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, does not defile his neighbor's wife or approach a woman in her time of menstrual impurity, 7 does not oppress anyone, but restores to the debtor his pledge, commits no robbery, gives his bread to the hungry and covers the naked with a garment, 8 does not lend at interest or take any profit,2 withholds his hand from injustice, executes true justice between man and man, 9 walks in my statutes, and keeps my rules by acting faithfully—he is righteous; he shall surely live, declares the Lord GOD. 10 “If he fathers a son who is violent, a shedder of blood, who does any of these things 11 (though he himself did none of these things), who even eats upon the mountains, defiles his neighbor's wife, 12 oppresses the poor and needy, commits robbery, does not restore the pledge, lifts up his eyes to the idols, commits abomination, 13 lends at interest, and takes profit; shall he then live? He shall not live. He has done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon himself. 14 “Now suppose this man fathers a son who sees all the sins that his father has done; he sees, and does not do likewise: 15 he does not eat upon the mountains or lift up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, does not defile his neighbor's wife, 16 does not oppress anyone, exacts no pledge, commits no robbery, but gives his bread to the hungry and covers the naked with a garment, 17 withholds his hand from iniquity,3 takes no interest or profit, obeys my rules, and walks in my statutes; he shall not die for his father's iniquity; he shall surely live. 18 As for his father, because he practiced extortion, robbed his brother, and did what is not good among his people, behold, he shall die for his iniquity. 19 “Yet you say, ‘Why should not the son suffer for the iniquity of the father?' When the son has done what is just and right, and has been careful to observe all my statutes, he shall surely live. 20 The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself. 21 “But if a wicked person turns away from all his sins that he has committed and keeps all my statutes and does what is just and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 22 None of the transgressions that he has committed shall be remembered against him; for the righteousness that he has done he shall live. 23 Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked, declares the Lord GOD, and not rather that he should turn from his way and live? 24 But when a righteous person turns away from his righteousness and does injustice and does the same abominations that the wicked person does, shall he live? None of the righteous deeds that he has done shall be remembered; for the treachery of which he is guilty and the sin he has committed, for them he shall die. 25 “Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.' Hear now, O house of Israel: Is my way not just? Is it not your ways that are not just? 26 When a righteous person turns away from his righteousness and does injustice, he shall die for it; for the injustice that he has done he shall die. 27 Again, when a wicked person turns away from the wickedness he has committed and does what is just and right, he shall save his life. 28 Because he considered and turned away from all the transgressions that he had committed, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 29 Yet the house of Israel says, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.' O house of Israel, are my ways not just? Is it not your ways that are not just? 30 “Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, declares the Lord GOD. Repent and turn from all your transgressions, lest iniquity be your ruin.4 31 Cast away from you all the transgressions that you have committed, and make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit! Why will you die, O house of Israel? 32 For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Lord GOD; so turn, and live.” Footnotes  18:2 The Hebrew for you is plural  18:8 That is, profit that comes from charging interest to the poor; also verses 13, 17 (compare Leviticus 25:36)  18:17 Septuagint; Hebrew from the poor  18:30 Or lest iniquity be your stumbling block (ESV)
Today's episode of Hopp on Calls welcomes James Buckley. James is a dedicated professional in the field of sales, known for hosting shows as well as public and private events with Sell Better. He is focused on creating content that enhances the sales profession, with the goal to empower salespeople worldwide in order to help them excel and exceed their quotas. With a community of thousands of members, James and his team provide valuable insights and tactics to help sales reps navigate challenges and bring their sales game to the next level. In this episode of Hopp on Calls, James and Kevin explore different approaches to cold calling and engaging with leads. James shifts his focus from sales leaders to demand professionals, adopting a unique technique called "the survey script" for his calls. Kevin, on the other hand, continues to engage with sales personas. Kevin's first call leads to an unexpected but engaging conversation with someone on maternity leave. He takes the opportunity to build rapport by discussing their shared experiences as parents and plans to follow up in two months. James, in his first call, delves into questions about lead scoring, lead follow-up, and the focus of the sales team. He successfully sets up a follow-up meeting using the survey script technique. Kevin's second call takes an empathetic turn when he discovers that the lead has been laid off. He offers to connect on LinkedIn and provide value beyond his services by connecting the prospect to potential employers.James suggests using social media, like LinkedIn, to follow up with unresponsive leads, while Kevin believes in persistently following up with cold calls. The conversation also touches on the importance of tonality and adaptability in cold calling. Kevin mentions an SDR with a flat tone but excellent personal alignment, highlighting the importance of understanding the target audience. James: "We have something new to offer for demand individuals. I am going to be calling a marketing persona, it is going to be primarily demand folks. The whole idea is going to be that I am going to try a new technique that I learned from Ryan Perris, and he talked to me about the survey script. The idea is that I am going to call demand folks and open up by asking if they have a moment for a quick survey. I will ask them a few questions that lead them down a path where we talk about what we are doing and why we are doing it. I will then attempt to set up a call with our sponsorship director for the next week or the week after, and I am using this language so that they feel no pressure for a follow up call during the next few days."

With family: 2 Samuel 10; 2 Corinthians 3 2 Samuel 10 (Listen) David Defeats Ammon and Syria 10 After this the king of the Ammonites died, and Hanun his son reigned in his place. 2 And David said, “I will deal loyally1 with Hanun the son of Nahash, as his father dealt loyally with me.” So David sent by his servants to console him concerning his father. And David's servants came into the land of the Ammonites. 3 But the princes of the Ammonites said to Hanun their lord, “Do you think, because David has sent comforters to you, that he is honoring your father? Has not David sent his servants to you to search the city and to spy it out and to overthrow it?” 4 So Hanun took David's servants and shaved off half the beard of each and cut off their garments in the middle, at their hips, and sent them away. 5 When it was told David, he sent to meet them, for the men were greatly ashamed. And the king said, “Remain at Jericho until your beards have grown and then return.” 6 When the Ammonites saw that they had become a stench to David, the Ammonites sent and hired the Syrians of Beth-rehob, and the Syrians of Zobah, 20,000 foot soldiers, and the king of Maacah with 1,000 men, and the men of Tob, 12,000 men. 7 And when David heard of it, he sent Joab and all the host of the mighty men. 8 And the Ammonites came out and drew up in battle array at the entrance of the gate, and the Syrians of Zobah and of Rehob and the men of Tob and Maacah were by themselves in the open country. 9 When Joab saw that the battle was set against him both in front and in the rear, he chose some of the best men of Israel and arrayed them against the Syrians. 10 The rest of his men he put in the charge of Abishai his brother, and he arrayed them against the Ammonites. 11 And he said, “If the Syrians are too strong for me, then you shall help me, but if the Ammonites are too strong for you, then I will come and help you. 12 Be of good courage, and let us be courageous for our people, and for the cities of our God, and may the LORD do what seems good to him.” 13 So Joab and the people who were with him drew near to battle against the Syrians, and they fled before him. 14 And when the Ammonites saw that the Syrians fled, they likewise fled before Abishai and entered the city. Then Joab returned from fighting against the Ammonites and came to Jerusalem. 15 But when the Syrians saw that they had been defeated by Israel, they gathered themselves together. 16 And Hadadezer sent and brought out the Syrians who were beyond the Euphrates.2 They came to Helam, with Shobach the commander of the army of Hadadezer at their head. 17 And when it was told David, he gathered all Israel together and crossed the Jordan and came to Helam. The Syrians arrayed themselves against David and fought with him. 18 And the Syrians fled before Israel, and David killed of the Syrians the men of 700 chariots, and 40,000 horsemen, and wounded Shobach the commander of their army, so that he died there. 19 And when all the kings who were servants of Hadadezer saw that they had been defeated by Israel, they made peace with Israel and became subject to them. So the Syrians were afraid to save the Ammonites anymore. Footnotes  10:2 Or kindly; twice in this verse  10:16 Hebrew the River (ESV) 2 Corinthians 3 (Listen) Ministers of the New Covenant 3 Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, as some do, letters of recommendation to you, or from you? 2 You yourselves are our letter of recommendation, written on our1 hearts, to be known and read by all. 3 And you show that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.2 4 Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God. 5 Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God, 6 who has made us sufficient to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 7 Now if the ministry of death, carved in letters on stone, came with such glory that the Israelites could not gaze at Moses' face because of its glory, which was being brought to an end, 8 will not the ministry of the Spirit have even more glory? 9 For if there was glory in the ministry of condemnation, the ministry of righteousness must far exceed it in glory. 10 Indeed, in this case, what once had glory has come to have no glory at all, because of the glory that surpasses it. 11 For if what was being brought to an end came with glory, much more will what is permanent have glory. 12 Since we have such a hope, we are very bold, 13 not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end. 14 But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. 15 Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. 16 But when one3 turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. 17 Now the Lord4 is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord,5 are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.6 For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

He set it like a willow twig, 6 and it sprouted and became a low spreading vine, and its branches turned toward him, and its roots remained where it stood. So it became a vine and produced branches and put out boughs. 7 “And there was another great eagle with great wings and much plumage, and behold, this vine bent its roots toward him and shot forth its branches toward him from the bed where it was planted, that he might water it. 8 It had been planted on good soil by abundant waters, that it might produce branches and bear fruit and become a noble vine. 9 “Say, Thus says the Lord GOD: Will it thrive? Will he not pull up its roots and cut off its fruit, so that it withers, so that all its fresh sprouting leaves wither? It will not take a strong arm or many people to pull it from its roots. 10 Behold, it is planted; will it thrive? Will it not utterly wither when the east wind strikes it—wither away on the bed where it sprouted?” 11 Then the word of the LORD came to me: 12 “Say now to the rebellious house, Do you not know what these things mean? Tell them, behold, the king of Babylon came to Jerusalem, and took her king and her princes and brought them to him to Babylon. 13 And he took one of the royal offspring2 and made a covenant with him, putting him under oath (the chief men of the land he had taken away), 14 that the kingdom might be humble and not lift itself up, and keep his covenant that it might stand. 15 But he rebelled against him by sending his ambassadors to Egypt, that they might give him horses and a large army. Will he thrive? Can one escape who does such things? Can he break the covenant and yet escape? 16 “As I live, declares the Lord GOD, surely in the place where the king dwells who made him king, whose oath he despised, and whose covenant with him he broke, in Babylon he shall die. 17 Pharaoh with his mighty army and great company will not help him in war, when mounds are cast up and siege walls built to cut off many lives. 18 He despised the oath in breaking the covenant, and behold, he gave his hand and did all these things; he shall not escape. 19 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: As I live, surely it is my oath that he despised, and my covenant that he broke. I will return it upon his head. 20 I will spread my net over him, and he shall be taken in my snare, and I will bring him to Babylon and enter into judgment with him there for the treachery he has committed against me. 21 And all the pick3 of his troops shall fall by the sword, and the survivors shall be scattered to every wind, and you shall know that I am the LORD; I have spoken.” 22 Thus says the Lord GOD: “I myself will take a sprig from the lofty top of the cedar and will set it out. I will break off from the topmost of its young twigs a tender one, and I myself will plant it on a high and lofty mountain. 23 On the mountain height of Israel will I plant it, that it may bear branches and produce fruit and become a noble cedar. And under it will dwell every kind of bird; in the shade of its branches birds of every sort will nest. 24 And all the trees of the field shall know that I am the LORD; I bring low the high tree, and make high the low tree, dry up the green tree, and make the dry tree flourish. I am the LORD; I have spoken, and I will do it.” Footnotes  17:5 Hebrew in a field of seed  17:13 Hebrew seed  17:21 Some Hebrew manuscripts, Syriac, Targum; most Hebrew manuscripts all the fugitives (ESV)

Dr. Jeff Moore // #LeadershipThursday // www.ptonice.com In today's episode of the PT on ICE Daily Show, ICE CEO Jeff Moore discusses the concept of excessive humility and being overly open-minded, discussing how it can hinder individuals from taking action and being useful. While acknowledging the importance and benefits of open-mindedness in considering different perspectives and possibilities, Jeff also points out that excessive open-mindedness can render one unable to take stances or make decisions, rendering it useless. Jeff emphasizes the need to strike a balance between open-mindedness and the ability to take a stance. He cautions against being so open-minded that one loses their ability to make decisions and take action. Excessive open-mindedness, according to Jeff, can lead to a lack of direction and clarity, making it difficult to make progress or contribute effectively. Similarly, Jeff addresses the issue of excessive humility, particularly in relation to feeling inadequate to take action due to a lack of knowledge. While it is important to acknowledge and respect the limits of one's knowledge, Jeff argues that excessive humility can be detrimental. Constantly waiting for more information or certainty before taking action, they assert, can result in paralysis by analysis and prevent individuals from being useful in their professional careers. Jeff encourages individuals to have a level of humility that allows them to act even in the presence of uncertainty. Jeff highlights the importance of being willing to make choices and decisions, even if they may not always be perfect. By embracing the imperfection of action and remaining focused, individuals can gather data and fill the gaps in their knowledge. This approach allows for continuous improvement and growth while avoiding the pitfall of doing nothing. Take a listen to the podcast episode or read the full transcription below.

EPISODE TRANSCRIPTION 00:00 JEFF MOORE Okay, team, what's up? Welcome to Thursday. Welcome back to the PT on Ice Daily Show. I am Dr. Jeff Moore, currently serving as a CEO of Ice, and always thrilled to be here on Leadership Thursday. I cannot wait to jump into this topic about choice and the need to make one. Before we do, it's Gut Check Thursday. Let's not ignore the workout. Let's talk about it. Let's take it on head on. It's a doozy. We've got five rounds for time, okay? We've got 12 handstand pushups, nine toes-to-bar in six squat cleans. Okay, it's gonna be at 155, 105, so a little bit heavier than we usually encounter our cleans in Gut Check Thursday, but the volume's a little bit lower there on that set. Five rounds of that for time, bang that out, you're probably gonna have some rest on the handstand push-ups and the heavier squat cleans. Try to keep moving steady, make sure you tag Ice Physio, hashtag Ice Train, we love tracking those videos. Get it in, it's Thursday, get the work done. All right, upcoming courses, I want to highlight CMFA Live this week. We've got Newark, California coming up. I think there's only two spots left in that course. That's with Zach Long and crew. It's going to be September 30th, October 1st, so in a couple of weeks over in California. We've got Linwood, Washington coming up October 7th, 8th, and then down in Hoover, Alabama, November 4th, 5th. So if you want to get out on the road, learn all things barbell movements, get into some basic gymnastics, talk about programming, demystify a lot of things around resistance training. That is the course you need to be in. It is, of course, part of our CMFA certification, which includes Essential Foundations, Advanced Concepts, also known as Level 1 and Level 2 on the fitness athlete side. And, of course, during that live course, you get testing in person if you want to obtain that certification. So hit that up. PTonICE.com is where all that good stuff lives. 02:16 YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE Let's talk about the topic. You have to choose. Team, it has always driven me nuts. From the very, very first entrance into my professional career, this comment or idea of more research is needed has always driven me crazy. Now, I don't mean from the actual research side. Like, I get the idea of why that statement is made, at the end of papers, like, hey, to get to a certain level of statistical significance or confidence, we have to have more data, right? Totally understand where that comes from in the research world. But the ridiculous incorporation or discussion of that into patient care has always blown my mind, right? So you see so many folks saying that, we don't know, we don't know, we don't know, as though we can't do anything. This is absurd from a patient care perspective. Like, I always imagine these people, like, are you really sitting in front of your 8 a.m. and saying, hey Lynn, I know your shoulder's really bugging you. Problem is, the jury's still a little bit out on the best rehab for this until we know, we're gonna pause here, I'm gonna have you come back. Like, are you really doing this all day, every day, every 30 minutes with a new patient? Of course not, it's absurd. To be of any use, we must decide and act in the presence of uncertainty. This is true literally everywhere in our lives. It is obviously true in patient care, right? We've got to do something for Lynn, right? We know it's not gonna be perfect, but we've gotta act with the knowledge we have and do our best. We have got to decide and act in the presence of uncertainty. And this goes so far beyond patient care. This is true in every aspect of our professional journeys and lives. We've gotta be willing to say, we've gotta be willing to choose to say, From what I've learned and experienced thus far, I currently believe X. I don't care what domain you're talking about. I don't care if you're talking about business, sports, hobbies, patient care, nothing moves forward with waiting. I was thinking about this last weekend. So for those of you who haven't followed my recent journey, I'm getting into enduro motorcycling, right? So I'm signing up for some races next year and I'm terrible at it. So this weekend I'm up in the mountains and I'm flying down this trail, moderately out of control per usual, and having to choose lines in real time, right? So you're coming up on obstacles, going relatively fast, thinking I've got to do something in real time in this moment. I have to choose. Now, knowing full well in that moment that if I was to go back to that same trail two years from now, I have no doubt that I would choose a different and by different I mean better line because I'll be better at the activity. But that does not mean right now I don't have to choose. I just have to choose, thinking with the experience that I have, what is the best way to move forward, knowing full well it isn't going to be perfect. In a couple years when I come back, I'll choose something different. This is the process. Just because you know down the road, you will know more and do better, doesn't mean right now you do nothing. not in patient care, not in business, not in sport. Yet, people are always trying to remain neutral and I want to discuss a few of the reasons why they do this and I want to challenge them a little bit. So, number one, people are often proud of themselves for being open-minded. What I would say is excessively open-minded. Being open-minded is great. Always remaining vigilant that better options are out there and keeping an eye open that you're not missing them because you're so tunnel-visioned, that's great. But being excessively open-minded to the point where You say, yeah, I'm open to that, I'm open to that, I'm open to that, I'm open to that, I'm open to everything. 06:23 “AT SOME POINT, BEING SO OPEN-MINDED IS HAVING NO MIND AT ALL” Well, at some point, being that open-minded is having no mind at all. And having no mind at all isn't useful to anybody. Being open-minded is great. Being excessively open-minded to the point where you can't take any stances is useless. And you've gotta be careful of which side of that line you're on. Number two is excessive humility about what we don't know yet. People love to say, yeah, but we aren't sure yet. We will never be sure. That's the nature of the game. So while, again, some of that humility is useful, so you're not excessively betting on something that you truly don't have the requisite data for yet, understanding that we are never gonna hit a point where we say, we are absolutely certain about this, Knowing that and owning that will allow you to act even in the presence of some level of uncertainty. So this excessive humility of, we never know enough to do anything, again, simply isn't useful. Number three. People don't wanna be seen as falling into a guru camp, and there's some good reasons for that. Looking back historically, and again, speaking to physical therapy, it's the area I know the best, there have certainly been plenty of extremists in guru camps that have led the collective astray, no doubt, but don't be one of those. You don't have to be an extremist in a camp to go in and say, hey, I think most of what's going on here is pretty useful. There's no reason you can't go into it with that frame of mind. But people are so afraid of being labeled, of being in this camp, or that camp, or that camp, that they stay, again, doing nothing. And unfortunately, doing nothing doesn't serve anybody. Number four, they don't want to step on toes. Once you say, hey, I believe this, you are naturally going to rub some people the wrong way because now you've committed a bit. You've said, I kind of looked at everything that I could and I'm going to go this direction. I think this makes the most sense. Well, other people that made other commitments are going to be rubbed the wrong way by that. If that is not happening, you are not doing anything of merit. If you are never rubbing anybody the wrong way, I can promise you, you aren't moving anything forward in a relevant fashion. So reflection point number one of this episode is are you doing that? In the past couple years, have you rubbed some folks the wrong way? I mean, give this some serious thought. Like really think, have your stances, have your actions bothered some folks? If that answer is no, you're not standing for anything. And if you're not standing for anything, you're not being useful. So just give yourself a little pause today and really think, like, am I committing enough that people who have made contrary decisions are a bit bothered by that? That should be a constant in your life. As you're working through decisions and emerging and making choices, some people aren't gonna love those, and if you aren't feeling some of that pushback, I think you're holding yourself back and trusting yourself and making commitments that actually allow you to decide and move things forward. But the number one reason is I look at folks who are forever trying to stay in this kind of neutral ground that I really feel this static posture doesn't get anybody anywhere is because they don't want to be wrong. They don't want to be wrong. They don't want to look back in two years and know the line they took on that motorcycle trail was the worst one they could have chosen. They don't want to be wrong. They're perfectionists. Team action is always imperfect. Action is always imperfect, especially in hindsight. There is not a single action you are ever gonna take that you're gonna look back with five more years of data and say that was perfect across every domain. That's never going to happen. So if you can't embrace that you're gonna be wrong, at least in some percentage, every single time you make a choice, You are forever going to be paralyzed. It will be paralysis by analysis for the rest of your professional, business, patient care career. You've got to get over that. You've got to embrace that every single action will always be looked back as imperfect, and that is a beautiful part of the process. That's what allows you, as you recognize that, to alter it, shape it, and make it better. This is the process. 10:55 “IF YOU CAN'T CHOOSE IMPERFECT ACTION, YOU CAN'T CHOOSE ACTION. PERIOD.” But if you can't choose imperfect action, you can't choose action, period. And that's a problem if you're trying to be useful as you're moving forward. Bottom line is this, the people that I've observed who have been the most useful, and of course, the most useful meaning the most successful, because these two things tend to go together. You provide a lot of value, you're useful, success follows, are always those who took really deep dives. They said, I think this makes a bunch of sense, I'm going all in. Like I'm gonna learn as much about this as I can, I'm gonna try to replicate it, I'm gonna try to leverage it, I'm gonna try to use it. But as they're doing that, they're aware and okay with acknowledging the shortcomings of that model. So that they can in real time be seeking out solutions to fill those gaps. They're learning through action, which necessarily followed decisions, choosing. You have to do anything besides nothing. You have to do anything besides nothing, because if you don't get out there and go, you can't evaluate the shortcomings, because you aren't doing anything. The people that I see that act with the most, again, it's not arrogance, it's not even confidence, it's out of necessity to act. They know they have to say, I know this isn't perfect, but I have to go anyways. Those people that are willing to be in that space, first of all, provide the most value, and absolutely learn and refine at the highest rate of speed, simply because the data's now coming back at them because they're out there. And because they're out there, it's a bit vulnerable and emotional, and you tend to learn a ton in those phases. Now, all of that being said, Your decisions should always change. This is a critical part of this conversation, right? Your decisions should always change with emerging data. If they aren't, you're just being arrogant. And now you're falling into the other side of the problem, which is not having one eye open. If your decisions aren't changing consistently, if that's not just a part of your growth and process, where you look back and say, ooh, shoot, should've done, now that I know better, I'm definitely gonna do better because that was imperfect. If you are not regularly doing that, you are also going about this process wrong, but on the other side, right? Remaining blind and over-trusting your actions. So reflection point number two of the episode is have they? In the past couple years, Have you reversed course on a couple of key philosophies, beliefs, decisions, directions? If not, I think you're erring on the other side, where you're not keeping one eye open. You think your action's perfect. You aren't aware of the imperfection and looking for the gaps. You're going in blind. This is every bit as errant, maybe even more dangerously, than the former. In this case, not only are you probably not being as useful as possible, but you're probably leading folks excessively astray by not being aware of what's emerging. So reflection point number two is are you every couple years realizing something you believe strongly had some pretty significant flaws and are you willing to incorporate emerging data to change them? Team. If you aren't willing to embrace that action's always imperfect, you're never gonna choose, decide, and move forward. If you don't do that, you can never get the data that fills the gaps of what we don't know that you're so concerned about, it's holding you back from action to begin with. Trust that your intentions are good. Remain focused. Humble in the face of everything emerging, so you're not totally just tunnel visioned in one direction. Allow that to shape your actions, but make sure that you're actually playing the game. So when you get information, you can modulate in real time, forever become better, but always stay away from the pitfall of doing nothing. 14:49 “PARALYSIS BY ANALYSIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO ENSURE YOU'RE USELESS YOUR ENTIRE PROFESSIONAL CAREER.” Paralysis by analysis is the only way to ensure you're useless your entire professional career. Do anything besides nothing, stay humble, be ever evolving, but be willing to choose. You'll be wrong. I guarantee it. Me too. Let's be wrong bravely and let's adapt in real time. You have to choose. I hope it makes sense. Hit me up with questions, comments. Thanks for being here on Leadership Thursday. PTOnIce.com where everything lives. We'll see you next week.

Jason and Will Denis of the Flippin' SoFlo podcast discuss various aspects of the current real estate market and the impact of interest rates and inflation. They emphasize the importance of looking at data rather than getting caught up in fear-based news and offer insights into why the real estate market remains strong despite economic challenges. They mention that low-interest rates have led to affordable mortgage payments for many homeowners, making it unlikely for a real estate crash to occur without distressed sellers in mass quantities. Additionally, they discuss inventory levels and how they affect the housing market, emphasizing the resilience of real estate as an asset class. They talk about potential returns on investment in income properties, with projected returns ranging from 20% to 30%. Jason emphasizes that income property is a historically proven asset class with multi-dimensional earning potential. #RealEstate #HousingMarket #InterestRates #Inflation #Investment #IncomeProperties #Returns Key Takeaways: 1:22 It's all about inflation: Data not drama 3:41 News versus noise 4:33 Inventory levels and the sink metaphor 12:24 Wanted for an RE crash: distressed sellers 14:02 Credit scores and what it means to the housing market 16:01 Population and immigration: Demographics is destiny 18:18 Massive housing construction 23:31 The 'Perma bull' of the housing market 26:15 Jason's crystal ball 32:04 Minimize exposure to 'fear porn' Follow Jason on TWITTER, INSTAGRAM & LINKEDIN Twitter.com/JasonHartmanROI Instagram.com/jasonhartman1/ Linkedin.com/in/jasonhartmaninvestor/ Call our Investment Counselors at: 1-800-HARTMAN (US) or visit: https://www.jasonhartman.com/ Free Class: Easily get up to $250,000 in funding for real estate, business or anything else: http://JasonHartman.com/Fund CYA Protect Your Assets, Save Taxes & Estate Planning: http://JasonHartman.com/Protect Get wholesale real estate deals for investment or build a great business – Free Course: https://www.jasonhartman.com/deals Special Offer from Ron LeGrand: https://JasonHartman.com/Ron Free Mini-Book on Pandemic Investing: https://www.PandemicInvesting.com
