You can probably tell I like to play with words, this one above has some real power to it I would say. As you will hear at the beginning of the show today when a car or lemon,(as you may think) seems that it can’t be fixed the real story may be that God is up to something. Once you understand what God has done in a situation you have a voice like Mr. Ed and your witness to what God has done has power beyond what I can grasp. Acts 1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
The power of declaring the mighty works of God that you have personally witnessed crosses all language confusion as explained in Acts 2: 11 “Cretans and Arabs—we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.”
This morning I had a break through. I have to confess that I had a long standing view that cars weren’t the lemons but the people who drive them are. I can explain, for many, many years I ran car dealerships and a couple times a year or so we would run into a car that seemingly couldn’t be fixed, and I discovered a long time ago that buying that car back was an easy fix; not so much because it made the owner happy but because once that person no longer owned it the car could be fixed. Listening to Marty’s Story as we will hear this morning explains a lot. after I get it this morning I’ll place the audio here
You see God was up to something, and now that I think about all those cars we couldn’t fix for the original owner but easily fixed after they no longer owned them I can see that God must have been up to something in those situations as well.
The part of this I can’t under emphasize is the power that we now have at our disposal as we witness to these mighty, wonderful works of God. The Passages on Declaring the mighty works of the Lord and the pure language they provide are numerous. Psalms 19:9, Job 33:3, Zech 8:3….Zephaniah 3:9 is one of my favorites ““For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language,
That they all may call on the name of the Lord, To serve Him with one accord.”
When we share what we have seen God do in our own lives we bring the Kingdom, the Truth and the Life… Can you think of a situation in your life that just wouldn’t get fixed until it became clear what God was doing? There are people everywhere dying to hear it literally, so share it today on the show 866-348-7884 or by all means every chance you get. Remember Lemon-Aide = Hoarse Power.

The sign of Jonah itself is a wonderful thing to ponder, above is William Gurnall’s take on it the disciples sure thought during those three days before the resurrection the Big Fish Had them, but the dry ground they were spit out on was more real than Jonah’s in my view…. Have you experienced it? Pray today.
Last weeks show ‘Think and Grow Rich’ we discussed, Andrew Carnegie’s secret to riches as explained in Napoleon Hill’s Book ‘Think and Grow Rich’, you can read about that in last weeks post . Before I go on to this weeks ideas I want to extend last weeks for a moment. Since I believe that Andrew Carnegie’s secret was unity and the reversal of the curse of the tower of Babel, this morning my mind finally opened up to what I believe is part of what Jesus was teaching His disciples to pray in what we know as the Lords Prayer.
The shear immensity of what it means to pray “give US this day our daily bread.” Yes, everyone, feed the whole planet, Lord, or even more mind blowing, “forgive US our sins as we forgive WE forgive those who sin against US.” Yes, I mean that everyone in the world would forgive and get forgiven. Yes, Hilary Clinton would forgive Donald Trump and Donald Trump would forgive the 9th Circuit Court. That the President of Iran (Hassan Rouhani ) would be forgiven and that Benjamin Netanyahu would forgive Hezbolla after he himself accepted Christ and was forgiven. Even closer to home that your brother would accept Christ and forgive your mother and your Boss would seek forgiveness from Jesus and forgive the production guy he is getting ready to blast on Monday. What a prayer, and now, “lead US not into temptation but deliver US from evil”. It’s like Paul said in Ephesians 6: “Our Battle is not against flesh and blood but spiritual forces in high places”. We are all under attack by the one who has come to steal, kill and destroy and here is our chance to ask God to come save, His Bride… Like it ends “For Thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory Forever, AMEN”… May it be True.
The ‘Think And Grow Rich Two’ aspect I am processing today is ‘Your inheritance’, and as A.W. Tozer points out in his book, ‘The Pursuit of God’ which by the way can be had on Kindle for 99 cents, the Levites and Priests got an amazing inheritance if they only understood. They did not get the land or the stuff, the got the prize, they got God. If you have ever tasted God and experienced a moment with Him, how much more would you want your family to inherit That from you rather than a 1966 Iso Grifo.Please, take a good long look, it’s junk it rusts it needs brakes. We let our stuff take that place in our heart and we inherit pain, loss, destruction. As, Tozer pointed out so beautifully, the shear love God had for Abraham that he would pull, Issac, however brutally from the patriarch’s heart’s throne so that, God would be Abraham’s inheritance and boy oh boy have, we to this day benefited from father Abraham’s inheritance passed down to me.
It has been my experience that with God’s love comes a fierce jealousy, (that’s a good thing believe me), and as William Gurnall pointed out in the, concept above, God will pull whatever is on the throne of our hearts besides Himself in an all out effort to provide us with, Abraham’s inheritance. Think about it, when did God do that in your life. Call us today on the Christian Car Guy Show February 11, 2017 10:05am ET- 10:58am ET and share your Story of when God took your rusting treasure. Once again, His Kingdom Come.
Napoleon Hill’s masterpiece ‘Think and Grow Rich’ in my view is the worst pick for a title in the history of literature, yet in a way it was part of his genius to attract what the world values; wealth. With that title I am sure many read it with that in mind, but what Hill outlined in that book for me was the secret he cleverly hid in every chapter as he told you of in the introduction. Every chapter of the book mentions the money-making secret that made fortunes for more than 500 wealthy people. Hill describes the first time that Andrew Carnegie told him about the secret of riches. “If you are ready for the secret, you already possess one half of it,therefore, you will readily recognize the other half the moment it reaches your mind.”
The “secret” after reading the book time and time and time again until apparently I was ready, in my view was best illustrated by Charles Schwab’s visit to an under performing Steel Factory. He walked in before the shift change early in the morning and asked how many pourings, (meaning how many times they had done there job working together to get the molten Iron turned to steel ready to go into molds) that shift had accomplished. He took that number which as I recall was 6 and took a piece of chalk and wrote it on the floor. The next shift came in naturally hearing that the big boss wrote that 6 on the floor was an extremely clear way to encourage a better result and as you might guess, they got 7 done that day and crossed out the 6 and wrote 7 and next next shift got 8 and so it went on until that plant was the number one producer of Carnegie’s plants.
The curse of the Tower of Babel reversed. When we work together we can accomplish anything. God said it himself in Genesis 11: 5 “But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. 6 And the Lord said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. 7 Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”
Fast Forward to the Book of Acts Chapter 2: “When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.” Yes they were all in one Honda…Or can you see Ezekiel 11:19 coming to pass, “Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh,”
Unity, one heart the Body of Christ, together we can change the world… Getting us all in that Honda is where you have to call on Dad and Jesus and The Holy Spirit…..
Oh what peace we often forfeit. At 399,830 miles Old Red started to wobble and wobble badly. Immediately, I started to worry even fret thinking, “400k Miles the front end has to be worn out, I’ll bet it needs a tie rod end, or a ball joint, could this be the end of Old Red?” It got so bad within the day that I didn’t want to drive it, would I never reach the 400,000 I had been waiting for for a couple years?
I went over to 109-U-Pull it and asked Terry if he could find me some good used tires, hoping a really praying that was all it was as the tires I had were used and already about 4 years old, maybe 5. As I waited honestly I worried and fretted, last Saturday while I was on the air I got a text from Bob at 109. “We have new shoes for Old red”. Monday I got them mounted and balanced and got Old red aligned and guess what? Smoooooth as silk, “Oh, what peace we often forfeit, Oh, what needless pain we bear,”
Are you wobbling, car wise, is your vehicle fitted and running in peace, like it has good news? Here are a few tips to find peace.
- What a friend we have in Jesus (pray) don’t forfeit your peace
- Yes tires separate it could be a bad tire even if it has tread.
- Bald tires
- Out of balance
- If you wobble when braking it’s warped brake rotors
- Out of alignment either camber or caster
Not surprisingly Monday morning when I went into my quiet time and ask Jesus what we needed to look at he sent me back to William Gurnall’s ” The Christian in Complete Armor” and it just so happened to be the chapter on the feet fitted with the gospel of peace. A Long time favorite peace of armor…just saying … I had lost my peace and wobbling like Old Red, this fits all together with these passages. What do people see when I am running, am I at peace?
There are strange happenings around the two messengers who brought the news to David about the final battle with Absalom in 2 Samuel 18:27 “So the watchman said, “I think the running of the first is like the running of Ahimaaz the son of Zadok.” And the king said, “He is a good man, and comes with good news.”
Further study of the passage even shows how undaunted Ahimaaz was to deliver the message and how he even out ran the other runner. “19 Then Ahimaaz the son of Zadok said, “Let me run now and take the news to the king, how the LORD has avenged him of his enemies.” 20 And Joab said to him, “You shall not take the news this day, for you shall take the news another day. But today you shall take no news, because the king’s son is dead.” 21 Then Joab said to the Cushite, “Go, tell the king what you have seen.” So the Cushite bowed himself to Joab and ran. 22 And Ahimaaz the son of Zadok said again to Joab, “But whatever happens, please let me also run after the Cushite.” So Joab said, “Why will you run, my son, since you have no news ready?” 23 “But whatever happens,” he said, “let me run.” So he said to him, “Run.” Then Ahimaaz ran by way of the plain, and outran the Cushite.”
It would appear from the passage that Ahimaaz was the good news messenger, while the Cushite was, at best, the not so good news messenger.
With all this in mind let’s have another look at all those good looking feet passages.
Isaiah 52:7 (New King James Version)
7 How beautiful upon the mountains
Are the feet of him who brings good news,
Who proclaims peace,
Who brings glad tidings of good things,
Who proclaims salvation,
Who says to Zion,
“ Your God reigns!”
Nahum 1:15 (New King James Version)
15 Behold, on the mountains
The feet of him who brings good tidings,
Who proclaims peace!
O Judah, keep your appointed feasts,
Perform your vows.
For the wicked one shall no more pass through you;
He is utterly cut off.
Romans 10:15 (New King James Version)
Ephesians 6:14-15 (New King James Version)
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Getting back to the basics, “What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
Clean Blond Joke
Two blonde friends were going on a trip to Florida. A neighbor told them that they’d be fine as long as they paid attention to the road signs along the way. But they’d driven just 30 miles when they saw one that read, “Clean Restrooms Ahead.”
Two months later they arrived in Florida exhausted, having used up 86 bottles of Windex, 267 rolls of paper towels, and three cases of toilet-bowl cleaner. Total restrooms cleaned: 450.
The Drunk and the Fire Engine

Immediately, the drunk starts chasing the engine, running as fast as he can until eventually he collapses, gasping for breath.
In a last act of desperation he shouts after the fire engine, “If that’s the way you want it, you can keep your blasted ice creams!”
When my girlfriend said she was leaving because of my obsession with the Monkees, I thought she was joking. And then I saw her face……
Wait for it, wait for it…. Are you saying it???

His Favorite Green Rubber Boots
I loved the slick inside of the boot, and wiggling my toes around all the space in the toe.
Nothing screamed freedom for me as a kid like green rubber boots. Each winter meant new boots for my little brother and me. Sometimes they were Christmas presents, but more often they were simply necessities for two boys who took their job of getting dirty very seriously and whose feet grew like they were steeped in fertilizer each night.
Sometimes we would go with our folks to pick them right off the shelf at the store. The boots generally stood straight and proud on metal shelves with a little forward lean, giving them an air of bowing soldiers ready for service. They came shackled together with a length of thin white cord or plastic thread.
Depending on the model, they might sport long yellow laces all the way up the front and a strip of yellow rubber around the top. Sometimes we got the plain slip-on kind, but I liked the lace-up version better.
I loved threading those laces in and out and in and out and then cinching them down tight at the top to lock the legs of my overalls or jeans in place and make the denim puff out at the knee.
You couldn’t maintain the billowy effect with the slip-on kind, so you couldn’t look like a British soldier for very long with those.
The only drawback to the laces was that over time the plastic tip would wear off and the laces would fray. Then threading them through the eyes got to be a chore—especially when cockleburs and beggar’s lice would grab hold of the ends and make a spiky wad.
Getting boots at the store was nice, but nothing was better than getting boots in a wrapped-up box. Rubber boot boxes are big. They are wide. They can double as a lap desk. The best ones have a hinged lid and open like a treasure chest.
I still remember several Christmases, putting a wonderfully wide box in my lap—with the faint scent of vulcanized rubber seeping through the bright wrapping paper—and awaiting the command for my brother and me to open our boxes together.
Of course we knew what was inside. We knew the weight distribution of heavy on both ends but light on the sides meant new boots hiding in a cardboard treasure chest. Sometimes a big sticker with a picture of the boots greeted us from under the shredded paper. But every time, raising the lid released a sweet smell of rubbery goodness. We folded back that sheet of paper and pulled out the cardboard inserts before trying them on.
I loved the slick inside of the boot, and wiggling my toes around all the space in the toe. There was always plenty of space for growing feet. You just had to wear more socks. Then came the requisite walk around the room and up and down the hall, booming along on the hardwood floor.
Best of all was the bang of the back door, the clumping down steps, and the heavy, thunderous thunk, thunk across the yard to the nearest hole of Mississippi mud and freedom.
