This video and the previous two describe the context and reason for "the blessed hope," the rapture of the Church. We have a few brief hours now before the rapture to embrace a divine mission, a “charter” of the church, if you will, that we've largely forgotten. That is the Christian's responsibility to Israel. If we've believed in Jesus Christ, 1st Peter 2:5-9 tells us that we are “a royal priesthood.” Why are we a royal priesthood? Because the high priest is a King, namely, the Lord Jesus Christ, who is also the “King of Righteousness and the “King of Peace,” and the true Melchizedek. The Church is a priesthood chosen for a specific purpose under true Melchizedek. To start, we learn in the Book of Genesis that God called a man who would be the head of two races. Abraham would be the father of many nations, but really the head of two spiritual races. Abraham would have a “seed,” of which Paul tells us in Galatians 3:16 speaks of Christ. But that seed would be “more in number than the stars of the heavens and the sand of the seashore.” A “heavenly people” anticipated the church, and an “earthly people” anticipated the nation of Israel (and those who “enter into her fold,” including Gentiles of every other nation.) The “seed” would be heavenly and earthly, and ultimately it would all be one. As Jesus said in John 10:16, “one flock, one Shepherd,” yet distinct and unique, but brought together as one. In Genesis Chapter 14, there's a story of nations hostile to Israel who come into the land. Abraham, of course, is living as a nomad. Five armies come into the land under Chedorlaomer, and they sweep through the land. And as they're snatching up captives, they take Lot and his family. Abraham hears about it. Genesis 14:13 says “One who had escaped came and told Abraham the Hebrew.” The word “Hebrew” means “the one who crosses the river.” And from Abraham comes a new Hebrew nation. He dwelt, “by the trees of Mamre,” which means “the teacher.” Abraham was staying at the trees of the teacher. Who's the teacher? Well, that is left for us to discover. Genesis 14:14-18 says, “Now when Abraham heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his 318 trained servants, ... and he divided his forces against them by night, and his servants attacked them and pursued them as far as Hobah, which is north of Damascus. ... he brought back all the goods, and he brought back his brother Lot and his goods, as well as the women and the people. And the King of Sodom went out to meet him at the Valley of Shaveh (that is the King's Valley,) After his return from the defeat of Chedorlaomer and the Kings who were with him. Then Melchizedek, King of Salem brought out bread and wine ...” Isn't it interesting? 4000 years ago, a man steps on the scene to refocus Abraham, to deliver him from distraction, to deliver him from temptation. And he uses the same elements that Jesus used with the disciples in the upper room. Genesis 14:18 says Melchizedek "brought out bread and wine; He was the priest of the most high God, And he blessed him and said, ‘Blessed be Abraham of God, most high possessor of heaven on Earth, and blessed be God, most high, Who has delivered your enemies into your hand.'” Melchizedek blessed Abraham. What did God say in Genesis 12:3? “I will bless those who bless you and I will curse those who curse you.” And Melchizedek, who, I believe was Abram's mentor, the teacher who taught at the Oaks of Mamre, blessed Abraham. In Hebrews 5:1, we meet Melchizedek again: “For every high priest” not talking now about a general priesthood, but the High Priest, “is taken from among men is appointed for men in things pertaining to God.” High priests do have the role of standing between God and man, but the primary role of any priest is intercession. Genesis 5:3-6 says, “Because of this, he is required as for the people, so also for himself to offer sacrifices for sins. And no man takes this honor to himself. But he who is called by God, just as Aaron was.” Now, the crux is verse five. “So also, Christ did not glorify himself to become a high priest, but it was He who said to Him, ‘You are my son today. I have begotten you.'” We know from the Psalms that this was spoken to Jesus Christ after the resurrection. “This day I have begotten you. And he also says in another place, you are a priest forever.” This is a quote from Psalm 110:4. Jesus Christ became the High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek on His resurrection to form a priesthood of a new order. This new order did not follow the Levitical priesthood. It was not of the lineage of the Levitical priesthood, and had a completely different purpose. The priesthood of the order of Melchizedek, takes its cue from that shadowy, mysterious figure, who comes on the scene in Genesis 14. At at a critical time in the beginning of the history of the Hebrew people, Melchizedek brings focus and devotion and dedication. Let's look at Hebrews Chapter seven. Hebrews 7:1 says, “This Melchizedek King of Salem, priest of the most high God who met Abraham, returning from the slaughter of the Kings and blessed him to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first being translated king of righteousness, and then also King of Salem, meaning king of peace without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God.” This is not saying that he didn't have a mother and a father or a human earthly line. It simply means that because the Scripture shrouds him in mystery, we don't know where he came from, nor know his lineage. “He has been made like the Son of God” by virtue of how he's presented. He is not the Son of God. Hebrews 7:4-7 continues, “Now consider how great this man was, to whom even the Patriarch Abraham gave a tenth of the spoils. And indeed, those who are the sons of Levi, who receive the priesthood, have a commandment to receive tithes from the people according to the law that is from their brethren, though they have come from the loins of Abraham, but he whose genealogy is not derived from them, that is not of the Leviticus order, receive tithes from Abraham and blessed him who had the promises. Now beyond all contradiction, the lesser is blessed by the better.” What was it God, said to Abraham, again? "He who blesses you I will bless and he who curses you, I will curse." And the author of Hebrews says, "the lesser is blessed by the greater. Here mortal man receives ties, but there he receives them, of whom it is written that he lives. And even Levi, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham, so to speak, or he was still in the loins of his father when Melchizedek met him.” Seven principles of the Melchizedek priesthood (from Hebrews Chapter 7) The priesthood is to bless the nation of Israel. You and I are not called to be their judge. We are called to be a priesthood standing in their behalf. We are to minister to them righteousness and peace. Here's our evangelistic outreach to the Jewish people. There are many ministries that are totally devoted to the evangelism of the Jewish people. All ministries should be devoted to some degree to the evangelism of the Jewish people. We are to be conformed to the character of Christ “made like the Son of God.” Romans 12:2 says, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” This priesthood is a royal and an eternal priesthood. In other words, it comes from the lineage of the King, but not through the lineage of Israel. And it lasts forever. That's your priesthood. “He remains a priest perpetually.” There is no end to this ministry. What are you and I going to be doing throughout the ages world without end? We're going to be functioning as a priesthood after the order of Melchizedek, ministering to them and to all who have come into their full faith. Our priesthood, after the order of Melchizedek, receives the spoils of victory as a tithe. There's a victory coming that is much greater than the victory Abraham had. There's a victory coming that is going to involve the entire world. It's going to be a tiny remnant of a shattered nation that is going to conquer the earth and they're going to win their victory because we'll be playing our part. The priesthood of Melchizedek is not of Jewish lineage. Notice verse six, “whose genealogy is not derived from them, received tithes from Abraham.” The priesthood after the order of Melchizedek is superior. Verse seven says, “Beyond all contradiction, the lesser is blessed by the better." You have the word "better." "Better" is a key word in the Book of Hebrews, and it means that which is superior by comparison. Hebrews 11:1 starts, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for in the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:6 tells us that, “Without faith it is impossible to please him. For he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.” And then Hebrews begins a roster of those who, through Old Testament times and generations of Old Testament believers, sought God, beginning back before Abraham. It's a lineage of faith and interesting to ask the question, “Why did he include the people he included, and why did he leave out the people he left out?” Notice what he says, starting in Hebrews 11:33, “Who, through faith, subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtain promises, stop the mouths of lions, quench the violence of fire, escape the edge of the sword out of weakness were made strong.” This is the key to whom the writer of Hebrews chose to list. Hebrews 11:39 says, “And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise.” Do you remember 1st Peter 1:10-12, where Peter reports that the prophets were perplexed because they saw that something was coming? Both "sufferings" and “glories.” How does this fit? Old Testament believers thought, “what kind of a time can this be?" Old Testament writer could not put it all together.” 1st Peter 1:12 answers, “But it was revealed to them that what they were ministering was not to themselves, but to us.” They didn't even know who we were. “A people that are not a nation of people yet to be created," but a people who one day are going to read their story and be made strong because of it and accomplish something because of it. A people who are “grafted in” so that “the root,” Israel, doesn't die. So that the root survives. So that the Olive Tree finally blossoms again and bears fruit. Look at Hebrews 11:40. “God, having provided something better for us, better again, superior.” Why did He do that? “So that they should not be made perfect without us.” So that they would not fulfill the plan of God for them as a nation without the help of the Church. So that God's plan for them could not be fulfilled until He created a new people, a nation that could “provoke them to jealousy,” a nation that could be an example to them. A nation that they would be able to look back like you and I look back at Hebrews 11 and the roster of 2000 years. They will look back at a roster of 2000 years, and they're going to read the stories of John Wesley, Charles Spurgeon, and D.L. Moody. Future Israelis are going to hear about Church Saints, great and small. They're going to be affected even by you and I. They're going to say, "how great were those people? How great was the love that they had for us?" They're going to know, once their eyes are opened at the rapture of the Church, and they see their foolish leadership sign a seven-year covenant, and those 144,000 evangelists get sealed, that the time of the tribulation period starts. And seven years later, preserved through horrible, unimaginable circumstances, they are going to meet Jesus Christ on the Mount of Olives. They are going to be gathered there waiting when He comes back. And guess who else going to meet them there? Us. We have a few brief hours to embrace this aspect of our mission. I think we've largely forgotten about our responsibilities to Israel and these yet-future people. Three Corrective Actions to Take Intercede on behalf of Israel. That's the greatest and the strongest thing you can do. Don't just pray for the nation now. Don't just pray that they will be delivered from their enemies. Now think ahead. Look ahead into the story and lodge prayers before the throne of God that are going to get answered. Then you pray for the 144,000. You pray that God might use you to start something, to send out a ripple that's going to have an impact on them. A book that you send a prayer that you pray. A witness that you give, you never know. Stand up for Israel. Stand up for them in the arena of world opinion. Stand up in the arena of your sphere of influence. Don't hold your tongue when people bad-mouth Israel. Shelter the Jews. The day may come that you'll have to shelter them. Anti-Semitism is sweeping the world again. Isn't it interesting hostility of a kind that we haven't seen since Nazi Germany is now in Germany, France, Britain, America? I would wrap all of this up under one phrase, “Don't let the blessed hope lose its blessing for you.” It's a blessed hope for a reason. And that is that we have fulfilled our mission and that God is now going to be able to bring the children of Israel to the knowledge of Him.
The All Local afternoon update for November 15th.
David Bunker, who currently serves as the chaplain of Judson University's Music Business and Entrepreneurship program, and has a long history as both a music industry leader and as an artist and songwriter himself, joins JJT to talk about the idea of "artist care" from the perspective of both creatives and those who wish to serve them. Bunker has been deeply embedded in the True Tunes DNA since John first shared his vision for a store, venue, magazine, and community that would dare to engage music - and art in general - with brain, heart, and guts fully engaged. John was just 16 years old then - the newly minted "music buyer" at a Christian bookstore in Wheaton, IL, and Bunker had recently transitioned from being in the Terry Taylor-produced band Shelter to working for a record label. "He was the first adult to take me and my crazy ideas seriously," John remembers. "And all through our journey - from the exciting highs to the devastating lows, he has been by my side with words of wisdom, compassion, encouragement, and care." Bunker, who is also a poet, author, and leader of creative care retreats, joins JJT nearly 35 years into their friendship to talk about the growing importance of Artist Care.

Landaas & Company newsletter November edition now available. Advisors on This Week's Show Kyle Tetting Steve Giles Kendall Bauer (with Max Hoelzl and Joel Dresang, engineered by Jason Scuglik) Week in Review (Nov. 7-11, 2022) Significant Economic Indicators & Reports Monday The Federal Reserve reported that revolving consumer credit rose at an annual rate of 8.7% in September. The increase suggests consumer spending – which drives about two-thirds of the U.S. economy – remained resilient in the face of high inflation and rising interest rates. It also indicates consumers are financing more of their spending as government subsidies from the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic have dwindled and as wage increases have not kept up with inflation. The pace of credit card debt slowed from an 18% annual rate in August and was the slowest since May. The indicator took two years to recover from its pre-pandemic peak. It took a decade to recover from the financial collapse and the Great Recession. Tuesday No major releases Wednesday No major releases Thursday The broadest measure of inflation showed price increases easing in October, though they're still outpacing Federal Reserve Board targets. The Consumer Price Index gained 0.4% from September and 7.7% from October 2021. Shelter costs, the price of gasoline and food bills weighed heavily on the monthly increase, though food prices rose at the slowest pace since December, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. The year-to-year inflation rate marked four months of declines from 9.1% in June, which was the steepest pace since 1982. The core CPI, which excludes the volatile categories of food and energy, rose 0.3% from September, the lowest in three months. Compared to October 2021, the core CPI was up 6.3%, just under the 6.6% peak hit in September, the highest in 40 years. The Fed's long-range target for inflation is 2%. The four-week moving average for initial unemployment claims declined marginally for the second week in a row. Data from the Labor Department showed the four-week average still down 41% from its 55-year average but 14% above its low just before the COVID-19 pandemic. Nearly 1.3 million Americans were claiming jobless benefits in the latest week, up 1% from the week before but down from 2.6 million the year before. Friday The University of Michigan said consumer sentiment declined from the end of October, losing about half of the gains made since slumping to an all-time low in June. Uncertainty from global factors and U.S. election outcomes mean continued instability for sentiment, which economists consider key to consumer spending. Survey respondents registered broad declines in their both their outlooks and their assessments of current conditions. Rising interest rates and high inflation dampened plans to buy big-ticket durable goods. Expectations for inflation were little changed at about 5% for a year from now and around 3% long term. MARKET CLOSINGS FOR THE WEEK Nasdaq – 11323, up 848 points or 8.1% Standard & Poor's 500 – 3993, up 222 points or 5.9% Dow Jones Industrial – 33748, up 1343 points or 4.1% 10-year U.S. Treasury Note – 3.81%, down 0.32 point Not a Landaas & Company client yet?

"The October 2022 Consumer Price Index or CPI report has shifted the markets. However, shelter and the housing market are still a big part of inflation. Jerome Powell has just mentioned that there is no plan for a pause with interest rate hikes. There has been so much volatility this year that it will not change most investors' sentiment," says Ashlee Walton. Walton also weighs in on how investors should position themselves in the current market environment.
The sound was that of a loud footstep, or so it seemed. Then another, and another were heard until a strange shape loomed up from the mist. The figure receded and then suddenly came charging at me! Without hesitation I whipped out the revolver I had and fired three times at the figure. When it still came towards me after those shots I turned and hared it down the path, reaching Glen Derry in a time that I have never bettered. You may ask, was it really the Fear Laith Mhor? Frankly, I think it was.
Genesis Women's Shelter & Support offers a robust program of residential and non-residential services to women and children who have experienced domestic violence.

This is an encore presentation of a special Soul Path Sessions episode from season 1. In 2020, Deborah began a poetic journey to share her experiences as a therapist and spiritual life coach during the pandemic. The result is "Shelter In Place" a book of incredibly thoughtful and vulnerable poetry. Brenda interviews Deborah about the process and the inspirations that informed her poems. From the book's foreward: "As a therapist and spiritual life coach I work with clients who experience anxiety and pain. This challenges me to work with my own shifting mental and emotional states. A poverty of personal experiences would deprive me of that ability to help myself and others. Some of my poems reflect deep suffering and fear that therapists generally hide from their clients. I experience my vulnerability as an unavoidable reality that helps me connect deeply with myself and others. My compassion rises from our shared humanity. I can be a therapist because of my own wounds and profound search for true healing of my mind. body and emotions.Hiking in the forest or desert, lying on the grass, feet in a stream, walking by the sea, floating in water, warming on boulders, resting under trees, drinking in moonlight and stars has always been a path of healing. I know that if we lose ourselves in this beauty we heal. I know that deep surrender and humility allow us to connect to wisdom and love. Sharing our journey of awakening with each other provide strength, faith and community. It is in this spirit that I offer you these poems. May they provide shelter and a sense of belonging."(Shelter In Place is available on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Shelter-Place-Deborah-Meints-Pierson/dp/B0B42P7G97/ref=sr_1_3?)

Our conversation for Tourism Tuesday - Shenandoah County edition - took place last week with Kary Haun from Shenandoah County Tourism at the Woodstock Garden Cafe located inside of Woodstock Gardens Nursery & Garden Store. Many of our listeners will know this location as Fort Valley Nursery. It was sold about a year ago to Beaune Brothers Landscaping. Kary & I chatted with John Fogle for a few minutes at the top of the show about his family's sale of the business and the transition which brought him back to the business as the retail manager. We talked about all the things one can experience and enjoy while shopping at the garden center. He also explained how Woodstock Gardens Cafe came to be - it's a separate company that's operated inside the garden center. You can get more information about Woodstock Gardens on their website: https://www.woodstock-gardens.com and by following them on Facebook. You can follow Woodstock Gardens Cafe separately here. In the second segment, Kary gave us a quick rundown of several events that are happening in the coming weeks including Shenandoah UnCorked, an empty bowl supper in support of Shenandoah Alliance for Shelter, Kary's Holiday Open House, as well as a few holiday markets happening at Star in the Valley Winery & North Mountain Vineyard & Winery.

Does PETA kill animals? And other questions about PETA's shelter answered. By Katherine Sullivan PETA.org Original post: https://www.peta.org/features/peta-kills-animals-truth/ People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) was founded in 1980, is the largest animal rights organization in the world, and PETA entities have more than 9 million members and supporters globally. PETA believes that animals have rights and deserve to have their best interests taken into consideration, regardless of whether they are useful to humans. Like you, they are capable of suffering and have an interest in leading their own lives. PETA opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview, and focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in laboratories, in the food industry, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment business. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of rodents, birds, and other animals who are often considered “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals. PETA works through public education, investigative newsgathering and reporting, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.

Mayor Bronson's shelter project funded by five million taxpayers dollars seems like an episode of the Sopranos. Governor Mike Dunleavy has a sexual harassment coverup problem. We talk Alaska's judiciary and the judges on the ballot. A book about Leslie Jordan and the Rasmuson Foundation is doing amazing work.
Ms. Brown details the help available to veterans that need help, ranging from a place to live, food to eat, clothing and life skills. Are there rules and regulations that need to be adhered to? Of course there are, but don't let that stop you veteran ! Turn your life around, try something different, you deserve better than shelters and outdoor grates and homeless camps! We believe in you and thank you for your service.
Last year, Sacramento mayor Darrell Steinberg and his council members approved a comprehensive homeless shelter siting plan that included 20 sites to be located throughout the city. Today? Not a single one of those sites is in operation, and the region's unsheltered population is at unprecedented levels. One silver lining is that the city appears to be pivoting from its failed shelter plan to a renewed focus on building affordable housing with the help of state and federal funding. Just this week they approved some 820 affordable units to be built throughout the city in the next two years. Could it be that the city is actually listening to advocates? Likely not. On Monday, officials swept some 1,000 people from their campsites without offering shelter or services. And they've got plenty more punitive measures in the works.

This Fall, we are doing a special 5-part bonus series of the "Josiah Venture Stories" podcast featuring some original worship songs by Josiah Venture missionaries. These songs are connected to the theme we studied during our annual Spring Conference this past May. The theme was "Burden to Blessing: A Journey Through the Psalms." We learned about five soul paths highlighted in the book of Psalms: Lament, Sovereignty, Repentance, Wisdom, and Praise."During this series, each songwriter interviewed will share their music background and songwriting process. Then at the end of the episode, you will hear their original song. This bonus episode features Korban Miller, the author of the original song inspired by the soul path “Sovereignty” entitled “From This Shelter.” For the past nine years, Korban and his family have served in Poland with the Fusion ministry. For the Millers, leading Fusion at a local and national level allows them to serve in a way that maximizes their gifts and passions --mainly, their desire to see the next generation in Poland know the saving love of Christ. Listen to "From This Shelter" *All of these songs were recorded live during our conference.

About Our Guest: Sarah, a Boston native, has been planning events of all sizes for more than 15 years. She is the owner and founder of Without A Hitch, a premier New England event planning company focusing on day-of coordination. Since starting the company in 2013, Sarah has worked with more than 300 brides, grooms, celebrants, and their families.

As we discussed last week, our breath profoundly impacts every area of our life. We start and finish life with a breath. However, there are other basic needs that play a role in keeping us alive and healthy. Without attending to these needs, we cannot focus on anything else. In this episode, we will look closely at the 6 things we need to survive and thrive. The truth is, that there are only five basic needs; Oxygen Water, Nutrients, Sleep, and Shelter. In order to focus on anything else in life, we must first attend to these basic needs. Once one of the needs is met, we can move on to the next level of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. I think many of us feel our basic needs are being met. Until we get sick or our health is challenged. Many of us are getting a say about our bodies and we are being left to deal with the consequences of our choices. I think many people realize to be grateful for what they have. I realized I had all of the material things I needed and my health and my family are what mattered most. What do you want? Is what you are doing making you happy? If not you may want to take a look at where you are and where you want to be and see if the choices you are making now are getting you closer or farther from that goal. Key Takeaways: -Most of our basic needs are provided by our parents until we are old enough to fend for ourselves.-There are 6 things we all need as humans need to survive and thrive.-Experts do not recommend plain water for infants before 6 months.-Children over 12 months of age should be encouraged to drink water.-You lose eight to 12 cups of water daily through breathing, perspiring, urination, and bowel movements.-It's essential to replenish your body's water supply.-An adult person can survive 3 weeks without food.-Sleep is essential for building memory, and skills, feeling more alert, as well as repairing our body.-The effects of sleep deprivation on physical health.
Adam talks with British film maker Lorna Tucker about her documentary profile of fashion designer Vivienne Westwood and how she felt when Westwood publicly disowned it. Lorna also explains how she found herself homeless on the streets of London as a teenager and the struggle with addiction that ensued; experiences that informed her new documentary Someone's Daughter, Someone's Son, which considers what can be done to better tackle homelessness.This episode was recorded face to face on 17th October, 2022Thanks to Rachel, Tom and the staff at the Universal building who made us welcome for our recording Thanks to Séamus Murphy-Mitchell for production support.Podcast artwork by Helen GreenRELATED LINKSST MUNGO'S - ENDING HOMELESSNESS, REBUILDING LIVESRough sleeping can become a relentless cycle that's incredibly difficult to escape from.

The Animal Foundation (local shelter) in Vegas has come under fire for a long time for many reasons, most of them deserved. For many years it was run by a corrupt woman, who was later charged (along with her daughter) with crimes involving another animal shelter in another state after being run out of Vegas. […] The post #340 Animal Foundation Volunteer speaks out about shelter procedures appeared first on Heidi Harris Show.
Nahum 1:3, 73 The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.7 The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
