Everyone gives time for this noble show where biblical Christianity meets the everyday issues of life in your home, at work, and even in politics. Steve is an ordinary man who believes in an extraordinary God and on a show, there's plenty of grace and lots of true but no sacred down on Steve now at 86 34 through 866-34-TRUTH or checking out online, Steve Noble now here's your host Steve Noble rapid specialty broth and radio table here in the studio moving things around. For those of you on Facebook live baby you like to go right so calling an audible.

Because here's what I actually want to do both. Yesterday I said no. This is just this is just the life with me and I'm kind all over the map right not a big big ADD ADHD can guide but if I were, I think you qualify because I can. I'm like a ping-pong ball in the dryer sometimes and bouncing around all over the place. Okay now yesterday I said okay that's up the phone today and I saw your calling is very thankful for which I still want to do. And then last year. Last year the year before I and welcome the show. By the way, this is Steve Noble Dusty Miller the Steve Miller show page on Facebook if you want to join us, right here in our super awesome studio via Facebook like you could do that and then. Or we could talk to some of the history and some the actual writings going back into the 1620 1630s that form the foundational grit and soil of this nation. Contrary to New York Times believe, so I wanted to boat but I can't do both. Today, so I think I'm going to do history today and actually were replaying shows tomorrow, Thursday and Friday because of it to be not home out in a big someone sate illegal gathering with family. There's going to be governor Cooper is going to be like 18 of us to secure an undisclosed location for four days and that's gonna tell you so you know maybe I'll be broadcasting from governor Cooper jail and Monday I anyway, so I'm in a do some history stuff today.

Then on Monday or Tuesday, depending what happens on the other side of Thanksgiving working to do the thankfulness show. Okay, so I'm and open up the phones and when we do that and then I'm just back it up little say okay and this is just a little encouragement you if you want to this. I think giving we do this in our family and will be think a little more time to move it along is not the food get cold where we got on the table and do the same thing that I do every year in the air, which is okay sure one thing specifically that you really think before that the Lord is done in your life in the last 12 months and not something real generally get to see Jesus are health or I've a job.

I have a house in another wonderful things obviously but but no beat. Be specific, because I think it's challenging for us sometimes to count our blessings. Oftentimes, and especially this year you work on a focus on all the garbage out there, what's going on in the political realm right now knowing that they were listening to cortical governor of President-elect Biden in his crazy cabinet that is assembling in his trunk and a have a lawsuit that goes anywhere. Yada yada yada and so often times were like one might think of war.

I don't know. And that's just not the kind of life that were called to live as Christians hate the world can be burning you still things to be thankful for in many ways this so that's where you have an eternal perspective. And don't forget, I mean if you're born again resting in the loving arms of Jesus Christ through his death, burial and resurrection, his atonement, his propitiation for your sin, you have much to be thankful for and everything that flows out of despite what's going on in the world. Okay so determined that saw me take you down memory lane today with the real things going please stand up and at the end of the show. By the way I'm to get to 66 things to be thankful for from the 66 books of the Bible. Something I wrote several years ago that I'll take you through something from every book of the Bible just studied every book of the Bible say okay what's what's one thing I can blotter that we can be really thankful for and like in Genesis, which I'll get to later in Genesis thankful that God created us in his image, just simple one-liner like that for every book in the Bible, can we go to that list.

The last segment of the show only to some history and will start with this appropriately is on November 11, 1620 this is the Mayflower compact signed by 41 Puritans, having undertaken for the glory of God and advancement of the Christian faith, why did they come they got the have any honor of our king and country still some patriotism there avoids the plant first colony in the northern parts of Virginia do by these presents, solemnly and mutually in the presence of God and one another is work. It's interesting covenants and combine ourselves together into a simple body politic for a better ordering and preservation in furtherance of the ends at first set meeting for the glory of God right but by being what by being a collective.

Now when used when you spy set up and you bring it in the 21st century contacts and Rush Limbaugh talks about whoever they're going to start talking about socialism versus capitalism, and in a general sense. Okay fine with, but ultimately for me as a father, Jesus Christ is about socialism and capitalism about God's word and what it directs us to do what you want to be in the 10 commands you want to explain it to the whole of the law in the Old Testament you want to bring a New Testament teachings, which expands the law to the heart and there and there you go, you'll find these principles okay so this is the way they started combine ourselves together into a Sibley civil body politic, which is collectivism, which almost killed okay almost killed this half of them died that first winter, so what was going on. Mayflower compact, 16, 20, and William Bradford who was not the first leader. There was James Carver, Mayflower came over hundred two settlers on the Mayflower.

There are 40 pilgrims led by James Carver the first governor of Plymouth. Those English separatists were ill-prepared for the hideous and desolate wilderness going." As William Bradford would later describe it. Carver died within a month of arriving Leavitt Bradford in charge Bradford's own wife died even before disembarking from the ship, fully happy pilgrims died in the first harsh winter sometimes two or three per day. Oftentimes we can occur. Have a cartoonish approach to Thanksgiving, but there are very very serious things, and very, very serious lessons to be learned okay so couple articles here and I'll put some links up one and these are both at several years old one that was in a Forbes capitalist lessons from first Thanksgiving night I nor the going and I appreciate the way they tell it. I don't think it's necessary to nest 22, infuse modern language into it. Collectivism is basically like socialism. Okay hey will all destroy everything will big pot we can trust each other.

Human nature but were basically good and ready to be fine.

So there's that article but I prefer this Ottawa by Jerry Bowyer. This came out several years ago called lessons from a capitalist Thanksgiving day based on his interactions with so many named Jared Bernstein of economic policy Institute.

They were on on Larry Kudlow's shelf cases and got into it about the first Thanksgiving. Something to take you through this because he talks about the history of BUT also uses actual writings of William Bradford okay actually store full account of what happened so that we can learn less work for God so right. Monday coming at Thanksgiving thing here.

Let love this one is lessons from a capitalist Thanksgiving.

This was the Jerry bow your who got into it on Larry Kudlow show once with a guy named Jared Bernstein of economic policies to Jared being very influential on left the kind of economic guy use advisor to Barack Obama and also so this is Jerry writing.

I explained that the first things giving was a celebration of abundance after period of socialism and starvation back and install collectivism okay. It seems Bernstein never heard about this chapter in US history called it an exercise in revisionist history.

Of course, admitting that he never read the memoirs of Plymouth Gov. William Bradford all yeah why would we go to original source material because it's an inconvenient truth. That's why so you ignore you leave it out. You don't teach the kiddos that is not convenient when you want to de-publicizing nine states of America you get that stuff out. He nevertheless dismissed.

The story is untrue, but the facts are undeniable.

There's nothing to revise Bradford's historical accounts which I quote below and read by schoolchildren for over three and years not hear that there is the Plymouth colony had arrived in the New World of the plan for collecting property ownership reflecting the current opinion of the year aristocratic aristocratic class in the 1620s. Their charter called for farmland to be work communally and for the harvest to be share is a Bradford set the strong or manna parts had no more in division of Vic Scholes and clothes than that then then he that was weak and not able to do 1/4 of the other could.

This was thought injustice someone one person should have more than another, even if they were capable of having more than another. They should, and that was thought to be unjust probably will not be surprised to hear that the colonists start. Many were unwilling to work to feed for someone else's kids swear human depravity comes in okay a biblical worldview. Women were unwilling to cook for other women's husband fields lay largely until then implanted.

Bradford said, quote, and for men's wives to be commanded to do service for other men as dressing their meat washing their clothes, etc. they deem to the kind of slavery you could many husbands well broke it unquote the Bradford going okay this is working so well.

Famine came as soon as they threw their provisions after famine came playing Colony.unlike most socialist they learn from their mistakes, giving each person a parcel of land attend themselves.

Bradford said and I quote at length. After much debate of things. The governor gave way that they should set corn every man for his own particular means you take care your stuff in that regard trusted themselves you be printed productive provide for your own family. The Bible says the man that doesn't provide for his own families worse than an unbeliever. So personal productivity matters to God and so assigned. Bradford said to every family a parcel of land. According to the proportion of their number for that in yet you have a bunch of kids and Ben's people in your family get a bigger piece of land right. The results were overwhelmingly beneficial. Men worked hard even though before they constantly pleaded illness fields were not only tilled implanted but also diligently harvested colonist trade with the surrounding Indian nations and learn to play made squash and pumpkin and rotate the scraps from ear to ear ours of Bountiful and the new colonists immigrated to the thriving settlement.

Bradford said, quote this had very good success, for it made all hands very industrious. That's the image of God day so is much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been, by any means. The governor and the others could use and save them a great deal of trouble and gave far better content. The women I went willingly into the field and took their little ones with them to set corn, which before would allege weakness and ability whom to have compelled would have been thought great tyranny and oppression the colonist throughout the state as intellectual fashions of their day. They concluded that the ancient principles of private property is recorded in the 10 Commandments were superior to the utopian speculations of Plato in the 17th century, imitators human nature was a fact of life.

That's human depravity. The sin nature of mankind. Okay this is completely saturated with the truth of God's word and human nature was a fact of life, self-centered and fall. No cadre of elite philosopher kings could change the cold hard facts of that reality. Bradford said, quote the experience that was had in this common course and condition may well evince the vanity of that conceit of Plato's and that the taking away of property would make them happy and clergy as if they were wiser than God. Unquote Bradford pretty funny and generally scary. It's generally scary to me scaring me that a leading member of the left intellectual establishment, a group that will shortly will both were elected branches.

This was written a couple years ago doesn't know about America's first experiment with socialism on top of that doesn't care to know you the did the philosopher kings who ignorantly blindly imposed on our forebears a system that led to malnutrition, pestilence, and mass totality, but it's always been that way men in ivory towers IV halls foundation funded think tanks are bustling newsrooms dream up new forms of social organization. They write books, policy papers and five-year plans telling us all. What's wrong with the way we live now, what can be done if we simply adhere to their analysis when the famine start to your riots or credit collapse comes the rest of us have to deal with the consequences.

It is been proved that the vanity and conceit Bradford phrase, not mine of the philosopher Kings ends in disaster.

But by then they've already moved on something else.

When remind them when we remind them that their ideas have been tried and found wanting in the past. They cavalierly deny history, clap their hands over their ears and cry even more loudly for change. If we listen to them will get what we deserve and so we are right okay fast-forward a couple years 1639. So this is expressing to us showing us the gospel saturated soil out of which this nation rose not perfectly. I will talk about that, but it arose. Nevertheless, out of a biblical worldview and the love of God's work right.

That's the deal, be thankful for that. That the vestiges of that still have an impact on the way we live our lives here in America it's dwindling but is still there, and most Americans don't even know it's there and don't know that they're operating on anything because they're ignorant why they're ignorant because we haven't taught them. I'm doing what I can with my family and with the five classes I teach high school homeschoolers and I hope that you're doing what you can, but most of us haven't fundamental orders of Connecticut.

The preamble in 1639. Listen to this for as much as it hath pleased Almighty God, by the wise disposition of his divine providence, so to order and dispose of things that we had a habit in the inhabitants in route. Residents of Windsor Hartford and Westerfield are now cohabiting indwelling in and upon the river of Connecticut in the lands thereof adjoining and well knowing where people are gathered together, the word of God requires that to maintain the peace and union of such people there should be an orderly and decent government established according to God's order and dispose of the affairs of the people at all seasons. All occasions shall require do therefore associate and join ourselves to be as one public state or Commonwealth and do for ourselves and our successors there that thought it again and our posterity right now based on we run in this country, both socially, economically, governmentally, we don't care about those coming behind us were burying the our successors. Whatever way we look at our posterity these days and such a shall be adjoining to us at any time hereafter entering the combination Confederation together.

Listen, this 1639 to maintain and preserve the liberty and purity of the gospel of our Lord Jesus, which we now profess is also the discipline of the churches, which, according to the truth of the said gospel is now practiced amongst us. What is is all based on belief and trust and faith in God and adherence to his word and his teachings. 1630 9K at 1639 and that is in the soil whether you like it or not that's in the soil I'm and have time okay to get to 66 things to be thankful for from the 66 books of the Bible want to jump over this ring at the breaker but I'll come back to the city upon a hill by John Winthrop, an amazing sermon. 1630 so this was up from a sermon that he gave called a model of Christian charity was written 1630 by the Puritan leader John Winthrop on the first group of Puritans immigrants is still on board your ship felt waiting to disembark the creative for settlement what would become the new England.

Another thing to be thankful for the incredible rich gospel centered history of this nation learn that for not thinking that says if it never happened except for that noble show never appears hosted here.

So when I said yesterday, when I think of all the people experience face with my right now this is really cool specific things that they think before the Lord is done in their lives. In the past 12 months and today I decided to do some history, some things giving history and then I went back in her God willing.

On Monday next week will set aside one day next week noble of open up the phones and will talk about what we think before it'll be on the other side of things giving but who cares we should live that way. 52 weeks here not just this one week in November so will do that when we come back to make sure we'll get back to that. So just wanted to make sure were all kind of understanding. One of the things to be thankful for. As an American citizen is the rich soil out of which this country spray in that rich soil was saturated with the word of God in a biblical worldview. Not perfectly, but meant there was an amazing by a significant portion of the people here, as the nation grew and then became its own independent nation, a significant number of Americans who just love the Lord loved his word taught his word, lived his word as best they could not perfectly.

Of course, and we need to understand that. Be thankful for that because that worldview is what drove with God's blessing is what drove the prosperity of this nation which is enabled in the physical realm. Every good thing in your life. As a result of being a person that has been raised, most likely, and employed in living in the United states of America. The freest, most prosperous nation on the history of the world. Not perfect. Lots of holes in that Swiss cheese but amazing nevertheless lushly relative to the rest the world. This is really fascinating.

1630 city upon a hill was out of a sermon called a model of Christian charity was written six 1630 by the Puritan leader John Winthrop. Okay, really beautiful as some excerpts of this and then some explanation. This is a great article from 2010 called the city upon a hill by John Winthrop.

What is it about now. The only way Winthrop said to avoid the shipwreck and to provide for our posterity is to follow the counsel of Micah to do justly, to love mercy and walk humbly with our God shipwreck. The author writes Winthrop refers to as the wrath of God that falls on peoples or nations who fail to do God's will and this is applicable today. Obviously earlier in the sermon Winthrop is been that one. Once warning the people that they must not fail in their efforts to set up a godly state in the New World and reassuring them that this does not mean they can never make a mistake, God's with them and will suffer small feelings, but if like the government and church of England. The Puritans forsake their mission to create a truly godly society. They will suffer the wrath of God is the shipwreck to be avoided. That's what he was talking about Winthrop goes on for this, and we must knit be knit together in this work as one man we must entertain each other and brotherly affection. We must be willing to abridge ourselves of our support annuities for the supply of others necessities.

We must uphold the familiar commerce together and all meekness, gentleness, patience and liberality. We must delight in each other make others conditions our own rejoice together more together labor and supper together always having before our eyes are commissioning community and the work our community. As members of the same body. So shall we keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

The Lord will be our God and delight to dwell among us as his own people will command the blessing upon us in our and all of our way.

It's a beautiful passage right is reminiscent of the sermon on the Mount and its focus on mercy, kind of sharing other selfless qualities. The Puritans will not succeed by carrying out the center otherwise mighty evil, but by loving each other, caring for each other in a bridging ourselves as he said of our super fluidity's for the supply of others necessities. That is, there will be equality well, with no one living in luxury while others starve, meaning generosity, not government force, not redistribution of wealth, but actual generosity. Christian generosity. I can have a lot and I can share part of my lot with those who have little Christian generosity, not compelled by the state not taken and then redistributed.

I get no I get no credit for that with the Lord. That's not volitional. I had nothing to do with that. In the choice generosity only is generosity. When you choose to do it like love with her brought on to say, so that we shall see much more of his wisdom and power. Goodness and truth. Informally, we've been acquainted with and how that's an understatement. The projected society would be almost unequaled anywhere in the world known to man. Again, this is a sermon from 1630 do it God's way will be blessed. Don't do it God's way, will be cursed. Take a look around you goes on to say this, we shall find that the God of Israel is among us. When tenant shall be able to resist a thousand of our enemies, we shall make us a praise and glory that men shall say, of succeeding plantations. The Lord make it like that of New England.

While we want to be like America well hello not the people still want to come to this country.

Even people of color. Here comes the crux of the X or Y will later settlers hope their societies will be like New England because the love and comradeship care and goodwill of New England. Notice that so far. Winthrop is been urging his people to be caring and loving and selfless he is in same area are all these things isn't boasting about a pre-existing condition. He's urging them to become caring and loving and selfless in the name of their godly mission so that they will truly succeed. The beautiful thought and if you don't do that and we haven't then you fall away from that. You don't experience God's blessings you experience God's curse is with most of the times. I'm just allowing you to receive and you that which you created for yourself.

Is that correct this nation. He went on to say this is one of the city in a hill part comes up for we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us, so that if we shall deal falsely with our God.

In this work we have undertaken and so cause him to withdraw his present help from us, we shall be made a story and a byword through the world, we shall open the mouths of enemies to speak evil of the way of God and all professors for God sake, we shall shame the faces of many of God's were the servants and cause their prayers to be turned into curses upon us till we be consumed out of the good land whether we are going while Sadr said. First, we see that city on a hill root what it really means visiting perfectly means visible they will be under a microscope, unable to hide their failures from all the eyes trained on them.

No one wants to live in the city on a hill because all your faults and feelings are in plain view. Second Winthrop wasn't just speculating the state of becoming a byword for failure and Artie befallen every English colony in North America by 1630 Road Oka disappeared in Jamestown was so well known in England, for the horrors it done on its unprepared settlers suffered that by the time to Puritans sailed their main goal was to avoid Jamestown's very well-publicized failures among many reasons. Puritans did not want to settle in Virginia was to avoid contamination with Jamestown's perpetual bad luck. Puritans put down a large part of colony's lack of commission from God and this is that this is to share this whole article. Read it for yourself.

This is such a valuable lesson to us and we see it happening at an increasing rate in right now with what's going on in the political realm was happening with the election what's happening with the Biden most likely taking office on January 20 in the commissioning setting up good old John Kerry's back in there and he's given him a wall of a $2 trillion in at the start to enact the new green deal if we lose that the Republicans lose the Senate.

January and January 5. This country will be forever changed fundamentally in two years you thought 2020 was crazy as much as is happened since March 1, you ain't seen nothing yet.

If that happens, and if that happens, it's because John Winthrop's thinking here and all the way back to Bradford and all the first Puritans. The people that love the Lord that came her early.

We don't do it God's way working to suffer to suffer, and we are suffering in just one point, we have the blood of 61 million children flowing underneath our streets that we drive on every day because we turned our back on God right really funny.

I saw an article in the New York Times ripping into Rush Limbaugh and Rush Limbaugh talks about Thanksgiving and anally wraps it up in mostly Free-market capitalism versus socialism language that which ticks them off in the New York Times gets all nutty right I like and then he talks about George Washington's first thanks giving proclamation and is no scripture in their I love the way they play this game so funny.

I happen to have George Washington's face, giving proclamation New York City third of October 1789, if you think this sounds Christian enough for you, whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor to recommend the people United States a day of public things giving in prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God.

Now that's a secular document totally. Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the people of the states to the service of that great and glorious being who is the beneficiary and author of all good that was, that is, or that will be that we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks for his kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation. This would be something good to read and Thursday. By the way, for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interposition's of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusions of the late war the great degree of tranquility, union plenty which we have since enjoyed the peaceable and rational manner in which we which we have since enjoyed to the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted talk about the Constitution for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge in general for all the great and various favors which he had been pleased to confer upon us.

Where is George Washington giving credit where credit is due. To the God of the Bible that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually to render our national government, a blessing to all people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue in the increase of science among them and us is generally to grant unto all mankind degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows who are you talking about GW talking about the GOP I see noble 56 things the back that go away very government good for him to be with a group of more than 10 people, but you can try combined 66 things to be thankful for from the 66 books of the Bible.

So on Facebook live today. If you haven't jumped in on our Facebook wiping. You can always go to the page later.

Obviously the Steve Noble show on Facebook and I posted there in the Facebook libel posted once I get up here in a little bit and etches the big long list. I just took some time one year. Several years ago and I'm just gonna go and I you know one thing come up with one particular thing from each book of the Bible to be thankful for. Obviously that Liz could be exhausted but I was trying to boil down for myself out of each book. One thing that just kind of the Holy Spirit just cannot pull that wrap the page and just put it right.

My face felt that's what I did took some time to do it and I usually start this too late. I saw him starting in early this time.

In Genesis thankful that God created us in his image in Exodus thankful that God will lead us out of bondage in Leviticus thankful to God provide the path to holiness you read the Leviticus going to have to read it to finish it then I can say I read it, but that's what it is. It's a path to holiness loss and numbers equal to God stays will that despite our rebellion. Can I get an amen in Deuteronomy thankful to God's chosen people are promised an inheritance.

I love that in Joshua thankful to God stands by our side as we follow his commands. 11 leave you nor forsake you reset right in. Judges think that God is always in string restoration to brings events and circumstances in your life. The chastisement of the Lord is upon us, but he chastises those he loves to you when you're being chastised. You can feel the love of the Lord's awesome and Ruth.

What a powerful book thankful that God loves everyone, regardless of where they come from some you need to hear that in first Samuel thankful that God answers prayers and raises up strong leaders for his people and that he is our ultimate king not trump not buying, not whoever you want to put on the ballot.

First Kings thankful to God reigns supreme second Kings thankful to God stays with us even when we disappoint is not amazing that shocks me all the time on my kitty given you so many reasons to abandon you not love but that's exact opposite of what he does in first Chronicles thankful to God is sovereign over every detail of history.

Amen and Job thankful that God is able to bring about righteousness through our offering we can all make sense to Job now several thousand years later.

How many times do you think Job is heard the awesome and something for the God hears and honors our heart felt prayers even when we are mad and discouraged improper single to God provides practical help for everyday lives.
