I hope you appreciated the programming that we have. We did some special teaching on those days was recording but here we are back in studio live 866-34-TRUTH 866-34-TRUTH 87884. Any question of any kind. Any subject under the sun that relates in any way to material we talk about on the broadcast phone lines are open. Often we start the show and before even start every line is jam actually looked well that's the case, but keep calling you get through 86634 to. Let's start over in Fort sill, Oklahoma with Eugene.
Welcome to the line of fire. Are you doing very well thank you alternate it had a question concerning right and unrighteous anger at one of it being the and found 139, for example, 21. Speaking now do, and I hate those who hate your Lord and going out loco to rise up against the I hate them a complete hatred.
I count them as my enemies anything. Search me oh God, and know my heart try me and know my God and see if there be any grievous way in me leaping to the way of everlasting and inept how I feel with the culture. Dr. Brown would like little, not acting, creating a new shoes and getting little bit more involved in politics. That is a danger of it because I have a growing irritation for the hypocrisy I speed mainly on the left.
To be honest, and it irritates me to see evil irritate the people have such a lack of reverence for the name of Jesus Christ and yet I feel like there is a biblical side to having a sense of righteous anger.
Being angry at evil but I also see warning in Scriptures like in Ephesians believers chapter 4 talking about not letting the sun go down in your angry in James chapter 1 be angry but do not be angry but do nothing. Ephesians 4 is be angry.
Johnson and James following is is about right that human anger does not accomplish God's righteous will. Yet in Psalm 139. The psalmist is expressing his hardness in God search it so it's really important to catch this early on, Eugene, especially if you do get more involved in politics. If I preach a primarily political sermon against the evils of abortion and things like that people will leave not just burned about abortion, but angry people angry at the Democrats angry at Planned Parenthood and that'll be the attitude if I preach a gospel based sermon on the evils of abortion, the leave deeply grieved over the was of abortion but with a broken heart as well to see people on the left saved to see people Planned Parenthood turned to God, so that will be a hatred of the evil itself and the hatred of what that does to two women and babies in society but a tremendous broken heart of love and care for the people. So like the loan-loss thing alone and all obviously but I feel terrible for the guy mesial towel for a young guy that is so lost and so famous and and having so much negative impact heart breaks for him and I'm convinced there's as much hypocrisy on the right as there is on the left and when you begin to dialogue with folks on both sides.
You. You can see it so you have to come in with a sense of humility. You have to come in with a heart. We are, you get along and pray for the people that are on the wrong side of an issue and you pray for them.
Even with tears. When God first Brittany about gay and lesbian issues was about issues back in 2004, it was about the issues in our society about gay activism and where it was going, but I knew in order to have God's heart in perspective could just thing about issues I need to think about people so I'm I made appointments and will meet with the local gay activists have lunch with them, but I'm sure story with me read as many books as I could the perspective of no gay Christians. That said, hey, this is right for you. This is why I am at those who try to change and couldn't and it was a red enough and I took in enough until I get a loan in my room get on the sweep so got all will hurt these people just want to help so love and out of that comes the idea that we often speak of in our ministry hearts of compassion, backbones of steel so that's what you have to have Eugene and I see often those who get very political they get nasty. The mean-spirited, they just insult and provoke it on both sides and and then you have the others. This we just have to love love others. There's a happy union so spotted from that from the outset, when you have hostility towards the person instead of God's heart to see the person redeemed and repent and set free vent then you kind of cross the line so I hope that's helpful. Using yet.
I think a good warning mechanism for me is having) that I communicate regularly with an they know my heart for God.
I have issues that they call and I might now in my life thinking that maybe a healthy love them for so I think that the good thing is having people on the outside looking in on a monitor to absolutely and then go over and visit sites on the left calling out the hypocrisy of the right neuropsych and we often get interfaces.
We look interfaces. I thank you for the call 866-34-TRUTH let's go to Blake in New Brunswick welcome Salina fire. Well, thank you very much sir I have been a mess for about three weeks in response to started in response to movement your teaching on healing and I just driven to repentance and weeping in prayer on behalf of not any specific church leadership leadership in general for for a lack of faith in him and started putting on programs last week on revival and during much of the antenna almost daily sir. I'm tripping and especially anything in praying for them and weeping and the end of my wife has received from some prophetic words read beyond the limits of an effort to the we believe in the coming harvest. The coming revival. We believe about I am and I'm in grief over the state of the church and my own state in the but more so my wife is having a different reaction.
She she's having anger because of of seeing marriages break up. The company jumped God ministry and the music of the things that you got the word that wanted credit word that God is bringing revival but revival felt his judgment to the church and then the and I keep seeing Ezekiel 9 which is so good. Yeah, because it's a very intense passage so likely sure you have things this is a wonderful healthy saying to be broken to be a spiritual pain and desperation to find it difficult to function in normal life. That's a wonderful thing that it reflects God's burden and you there is no revival in history that came without this kind of brokenness and pain and desperation. The thing where you have to push meals away because you have to meet with God and and can't sleep because you're on your face, seeking him in your strategy. Your normal job. But you break down crying. That's that's me is very sacred. That to me means that the culture and more of his heart with us and your wife's anger, obviously against the works of Satan and the effects of sin in the world and that that if that reflects another aspect of of gods of God's heart which you have to do is just first understand that this means you are in harmony with God, you're not fighting against him, but joining with him for salvation and healing and deliverance. As for revival, and judgment for sure they are related in that when God comes in revival.
He brings that intense holy scrutiny that was mentioned by James admin, or that that revivals like Judgment Day. The erosion have to give account. Almighty God Almighty God, your on your face before literally all my God on your face before repenting within.
With that to whom much is given much is required when God really comes and visits. Then there's a great responsibility. If we respond rightly this great blessing if we ignore what he's doing a push away then then there's great loss with it, like I just want to pray with you and encourage you to keep hungering and thirsting, if you go online and just put in my name and then holy desperation you'll find it on YouTube. Proxima website as well. But it's a message I preached in 1998 during the Browns were revival that I believe will will will deep in the heart cry and in you and your wife and I remember being like this but I think I I can't live another day with Reich. I cannot live another day without the breakthrough and then in another state, another day in within that deepens the prayer deepens the cry deepens the fasting and then when when God visits boy.
It's all worth it. It's it's very very sacred. So Lord I pray for Blake and his wife and for others the sea right now so that's my horns will deepen our hunger and thirst for you, deepen our hunger and thirst for revival for your presence for your healing power to set the captives free mere love for you in union with you be deeper than ever hear the cry of your people and work once more.
Behalf of North America behalf of the nations in Jesus name amen hate like thanks thanks for calling and sharing your heart. May the Lord be glorified, just pause for a moment. Jesus said in Matthew five Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled part of the hunger and thirst we have is is we want to see God's righteousness in the earth was he his saving arm in the earth, and we hunger and thirst to see things set Reisch Jesus said in in John seven whoever's thirsty, let them come to me and drink. The psalmist said in Psalm 107 that that God satisfies the hungry feels that thirsty with with good things. Psalmist talked about hungry and thirsty for God in some 63 spoke of that burden hungering for God and his holy presence might like someone in a dry and thirsty land just dying to get a drink of water as the deer pants for the water so my soul pants there for you. These are biblical expressions when the burden deepens and intensifies. It's often a sign that God is drawing near. So it may be intense, it may be new for you to go with the burden express your heart to God he's near the broken hearted. Everybody look up Isaiah 5715 Isaiah 5715 will be right back in the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown voice of moral cultural and spiritual revolution.

Let's go right back to the phone since I get some a screen here only a full and open to great-aunt to call 86634 let's go to Stephen in chagrin Falls, Ohio. Welcome to the line of fire. Thank you Dr. I appreciate your talk.
I will call and just briefly discussed. Romans eight 2930, familiar with the Garmin & author, and I probably watch your debate with Dr. Lake Avenue to two half hours long. Okay. In the Q&A session at the end you give an answer on or known at chain of production God or knew he could not recall the trust article archive and I know you had to be quick in your answer, but you went to the Greek definition to start the chain and unique that that is not exclusively tied to meeting preordained and what I wanted to offer what is going Greek definition of the foreknowledge actually offers its own usage of the work or known in Roman Chapter 11 verses one and two he actually refers to anything and I wanted to just quickly read is definitely part out, and then repeat that chain as being specific to Israel and not exactly trying to explain who Satan is not okay Roman Chapter 11 verses one and two. He says I have been have got rejected his people by no means pry myself an Israelite, a descendent of Abraham, a member of the tribe of Benjamin.
God has not rejected his people compete for new and at that exact thing Greek word for now we reread Romans 829 to 30 starting that chain with Israel, it actually had a little bit of a different trip in the traditional explanation with Celica for new being Israel. He also predestined to be conformed to the image of it on to be the firstborn among many brothers to the foregoing being Israel and firstborn among many brothers. This reference to Jesus and then Israelite, confessed an idea from Roman effect. Salvation is offered to the Jew first, and Greek and those whom he predestined he also called and a calling is to a summoning and there's an Old Testament verse Israel I called you by name your my toes and he called he justified, meaning justified, never spent, and God did give Israel different laws of the different sacrifices take away their thing, and he ultimately the Messiah for the floodlight looking to justify glorified and in context. I think Paul is referring to is glorified nonconformity 21 just a few verses earlier you talk about the glory of being a child of God and Israel is referred to as being God's children in the Old Testament. Deuteronomy 41 and I think the most important thing about the first is the conflict of predestination is a hotly debated topic right if he really is starting this chain with Israel you typically think Israel was predestined and yet he goes on the fan Romans 911. Not every Israelite, broken off for lack of faith Gentiles graph on your thoughts on right so so first thing it's it's not an unfair reading of the text in any way in. In other words, it's not like yours your squealing and squirming to get out of something coming up with something outrageous just as you were saying this I was checking so as far as I can see this particular verb in question here to lose five times in the New Testament. And Paul uses it twice so it is Romans 829 Romans 11 to so are you aware of. Paul ever using this anywhere else… I can think of right okay actually yeah I may I may have done the search wrong but I had. I hadn't search that before of first Peter 120 is is speaking of Jesus was chosen or foreknown before the creation of the world. Second Peter 317. In the next 26 five sold the fact that you so rarely and that Paul uses it twice in in this section. Here, which is all the related section that that argues in your favor. It then leads into Romans nine in a more logical way because that's was one of the big questions as to how do you get from the enrollments not to be Romans a to begin a Romans nine and one answer is is as is. Paul is been saying that nothing can separate you from love of God than a natural question what happened. Israel hence this again to to 91, but you would give it even more clear bridge so might my biggest question I don't I have a justified debatable, but perhaps that could be understood in terms of God calling Israel out and giving them a fresh start. You you that that this seems slightly forced but not impossible. What I have to do is look at all of Paul's uses for that and see where he explains because he does say later. Of course that with Israel was seeking. It didn't find in a name the justification which the Gentiles found to say pursued by faith was Israel did by a works glorified, that doesn't trouble me either, and those that that does not seem unnatural and in even if it's not about being a believer is that God dwelt in their midst. God glorified Israel by dwelling in their midst, etc. so it's it's definitely a viable reading, and it would it would be one that again I'm not. I'm not looking to refute Calvinism noticing another.
There was a Calvinistic reading from a Calvinistic viewpoint works works great exegetical works just fine. The question is is is that we Paul saying is in harmony with what is written elsewhere. When she gets Romans nine Israel that some of predestination is for salvation, but as far as calling it in terms of you know that Jacob was was Jacob of of the so hated.
Does anyone goes to heaven. It was to help his will was selected for special service from commentaries you study how many have you found the goal in this direction. I never got it all right so I I will be checking my my pretty large Romans library just to see others have gone this direction and one that when I when I come to some further conclusions I'll mention it on the air when David great.
I appreciated again.
This is the kind of thing you look for in terms of inter-textual. Hence, usages in the early stages of Isaiah commentary but not I'll see you would like to ferret which is beauty, glory, splendor that all is in my head.
It's like I think I say uses that a lot and then okay so that I search you will and is like yup yup he uses it more than a prophet anybody.
Also these things again that that's prove anything there but it's just you find these themes. This trend, so I will follow through on the Stephen you do the same but I appreciate you calling in and laying this out very much. Michael all right, 86634. Have I ever seen – something's ring a bell, something's ring a bell, but definitely haven't looked at it carefully and this the first, really well.
So thank you Steve appreciated 866-34-TRUTH. Let us go to Bob in Chattanooga, Tennessee walking to the line of fire.
Michael Auerbach, airport, or Christian love your show about natural law breakers are better, 73, ever Christian for 45 years I've never heard anyone except you and Erwin literature know the truth about the child. They all love the quote Malachi and I love the quote second printing is nonfiction about who service shows screaming Sharee to requote worship, but each one due just as he is proportionate torque not grudgingly or under compulsion or was a time it was compulsion relates. I had to do it but I never croaked it in the proper preachers its own radio, Internet, and everything today and I will not mention his name two years ago he had the ark – a teacher cited in his opinion, not the Bible. Speaking registered in my opinion if you're not tithing, to your local church and you're out of fellowship with Christ and I was very minimal.
Not only women walk with you. Yes, that's obviously extreme it is not an idea I've heard many people quote, not grudgingly, under compulsion, but hey enough is not said about this song. I'm glad I'm glad you found the teaching biblical life-giving. But anyway, your your question.
Thanks are water in the PART of Mosaic law on what people say about sacrifices to be forgiven. If this sin was intentional, not unintentional, which I gather from reading Old Testament dictated unintentional sin. That's what the shark brushes before them are wrong about better today cover unintentional as well as intentional sin no intentional since first and foremost had to be repentance write something unintentional you realize why did I need to do that you feel bad about it.
Something intentional. There must be clear repentance of that was always first and foremost, unintentional sins could be forgiven with repentance and the day of atonement, Leviticus 16, it does mention intentional since transgressions which is his outright rebellion.
So the day of atonement would cover that and then certain intentional sins. If you look at the beginning of Leviticus 600 were covered by the Schaum which is a guilt offering, so that was some specific sins of you defrauding your neighbor things and did it you repent you offer that sacrifice, but generally speaking it off if you just don't like somebody inside to beat them up. Though there was nonspecific sacrifice to offer you your appeal for mercy and you might offer sacrifice.
Just out of contrition, but the key sacrifice that would bring forgiveness for that was the day of atonement.
That's why he reset euros in annual saying where's the Jesus we receive the complete removal of Hill, thanks for the question write back and then celebrate her plan and it's the light a fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get into the line of fire now by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown nice friends for joining us on the line of fire. The questions we've got answers really quickly and and I'll share more in the days ahead. We recorded each shows for the new wakening TV network. That's a WK and G get a free trial subscription there wakening TV.com silly brand-new show called that's debatable with Dr. Brown. We recorded eight debates in two days that's in a half-hour formats with lively give-and-take back and forth and it was wonderful. It was amazing that the team production team did great of the guests were all just what we were hoping they would be used from their own perspective.
So from a gay pastor transgender pastor former Christian rock singer now agnostic former evangelical now activists atheist progressive Christian who votes pro-choice. Another believer who will use charismatic's overemphasize divine healing replacement theology to Bay Muslim omicron of the Bible be the word of God.
Each one different some more intellectual some more experiential personal but is is is wonderful. It was a joy and absolute joy to do it and I believe it's can be a really neat show and although it's a subscription TV network.
In point of fact we are we are to be able to play on the air. The three minute excerpt each week from the debates.
Everybody will get to be exposed to highlights of the subscriber, not those that want the full package broadcast can do that okay with that. We go to the phones and let's start with Scott in St. Louis, Missouri Romana fire are no pearly truth but yeah it was. It was a repeat show because I was recording TV yeah so we encounter the mom referring to Bob Wright early church fathers such as Iranian high colligative and even referring to Jeremiah 17. In our English translations of majority. The heart is above all things to know about you but translations that I go through and what you brought up in the early church followed primarily often wrong with being 23 around 330 with putting together the voltage translated wicked.
The Hebrew word being called relationship to Jacobs heel not taken or the story to committee thought, but in the early church fathers of majority, look at that in the big translated as man heart beating thought being, and who can understand that there is not not necessarily in the 18 negative or wicked light or anything close to just try to get your Masoretic came along that Mozart translations come from the everything comes from the Hebrew text. That was the Masoretic that's the original text.
Everything is translating the Hebrew text system. Tuition comes after that felt all these others come after that. So, so any of the church leaders that understood our Cove to mean deep, which would be kind of like as if it was borne out cut out there would be a different route. So there. There there there different means front for the root cause okay but if they came to the conclusion screws the reading Greek there was no mystery. If the reading Greek that's with the translation said they could read Hebrew, so if there translations the deep. That's what they thought Mensa did not if it's three or five or 50 of them there all reading the same translation of but you have to go back to two Hebrew when you when you're looking at other early traditions of, for example, the target, which is the Aramaic translation of the Hebrew that that uses Nokia which would be deceptive when I'm looking at. Let's see of the Syriac sheet which comes little bit later. That's more, there'd be strong and yeah it it is it is true that that the subject to geniuses but they are there, which is deep but I've never seen any reason to question this, that another was to question the cold reading. I've never seen about reading. So here are some of the interesting for you to do and and often encourage people to do this go to Bible Gateway.com okay but Bible Gateway.com then type in words looking for your verse, Jeremiah 17 nine I then it'll have different translations on the right to sleep. Whatever translation is there and then when you scroll down under the verse. It'll say Jeremiah 17, nine in all English translations you click on that and that this will give you a list of 3040 different English translations. And when you see virtually all of them say the same thing then you say okay there's there's a reason for this. So why ever the Septuagint went in a different direction. It's certainly not the most likely meeting of our Cove. It's not what I would think when I would read it and the only reason that these other church leaders understand like that is because there translation said that. So if if the only Bob you have say is the King James Bible in English and you read the text a certain way because that's the only reason English right so again there's no mystery as to why Greek speaking Greek writing church leaders would follow the Septuagint, but a Cove. There's really I've never seen a serious debate that's worthy as to not meaning evil places me deceitful wicked in that sense, but it's it's deceitful, it's unreliable in a negative who can know it. Not like we can plumb the depths of it a definite see that there yeah you are you are very welcome 866-34-TRUTH and we go to Christian in Toledo Ohio. Welcome to the line of fire broke a man of like to personal courses on the Bible related operative work equipment on your life where you only care about will go to cripple negative things people say about the line about. You be you. You look on the crystal where you go to the Lord how to pick it up right. Well, not my natural inkling is to be self-confident and God really had a purge that to be more got confidence in self-confident, you know, some people are very shy incident was never me but when God save me the salvation was so radical and dramatic and that meant being rejected by Jude the whole Jewish community Sunday one I was an outsider and I was told I was wrong so I had to deal with that from day one, but I knew that I knew that Jesus was real in my life and when you when you look if if I see you are not Christian from did that is not who you are, you're lying.
It's like you just feel bad for me because you know that you are Christian you know is who you are right so that's been the biggest thing to know that you know that you know that your foundation got a solid and that what you believe is real and true and then you feel bad for those who differ. You know, if someone says I know you don't live in Toledo Ohio man your line your from Mars think Newport economist McAfee, so that's a really big thing to to so it was out of the gate that I have to be confident and then the more I got challenged. It drove me to study that drove me to pray it drove me to my knees and in the more you do that, the more God affirms the more the more God blesses that over the years as I've seen so many people that attacked me in the line you then later, and apologize or I've seen them tell me this will never happen in your life and you will never do this and you will never do that, God, you promised me in any does it so that that it's been that initial thing and then the experiences over the years have dismay that kinda lifestyle for me and that you might challenge me. Have a question like some I hope it's like that's a great question and never thought about that but the things that are core foundation man I'll die for those I feel terrible for those who are missing.
It's of the more they attacked me that the more my heart goes out to them.
No, of no legal beagles of people so blown I went with, you know like computers where like I was a little bit dull goggle sprinkle close how do you put the roast on the light will still just get complacent at this bill actually unloaded by little into interesting right now. Coastal reading cost of most of you and Ogata don't think so) nominal student praising the little horse boom boom boom out.
Note democracy was possible certain how do you get the strike on it will be assured you're not alone in asking that center of the word that that everyone that walks with the Lord long enough for most everyone's going to go through that.
So the one thing is to be honest with God about it right. He knows. Anyway, it's like gonorrhea and only read the Bible along pray as I find so boring right now. I've much rather do some analysis of much route, you know.
So first, just be honest and pour your heart out. Sometimes when you do that at length, you end up really come into communion you do that length and you end up really feeling now the kind of the relational aspect of things coming back on the other thing I've done with Scripture is is try to change things a little bit of like I remember once being in a rut we're just Bible just did not interest me and reading it didn't psychos get anything out of it and it was a matter of just going through the religious exercise of reading it. So I got down on my knees and for period of time I would read the Bible in a communing way with God. In other words but some reading. First Timothy and I reading this verse and I say while God that really speaks to me and how do I do that how you get there and I was so the whole way I read was interactive and everything turned into to God.
Note that sink more.
That's what an amazing truth but II think I'm missing something here are that convicts me. I got that seem strange, I'm gone. I don't understand why you would do that and is just that honest, interacting with God loves you like to read through as much Scripture, but then it didn't take long before things really, lit up again and the key thing is don't stop it out better to say God I thought.
I feel totally bored praying I feel like I'm talking to the wall but never do it anyway because otherwise you can just fall out of habit of praying and reading the word but be honest, change the routine do more. The interactive kind of thing. As I've said in Scripture, and soon enough you find the joy coming back.
The interest coming back.
The passion, the hunger, the thirst out one time. I just went on a short faster like six days with with juice only just saying God things. Things are dry and then came out of it greatly refreshed, but be an honest man.
That's where it all starts.
Be honest with God and with yourself and turn that into sound like you to have a chat with me to sit down like we haven't we have doubletalk here is things are just another outworking sums wrong in the fellowship store. Thank you for asking. Starts with honest, it's the line of fire with your host activist, author, international speaker and theologian Dr. Michael Brown voice of more cultural and spiritual revolution get into the line of fire now by calling 6643 here again is Dr. Michael Brown.

Okay 866-34-TRUTH, let's go to Kevin in Mississippi. Welcome to the line of fire and chemotherapy are being armed today. I'm calling because I was wondering.as a believer when it all, but a person is praying to be free from from a particular strobe fan. Why is it that God from time to not take away the struggle initially but like you don't have the leverage struggle with it and you know, for a particular reason but if the real purpose behind that yeah Kevin it's it's a serious question that most of us had to deal with at some point or another. There are several possible answers I see possible because every situation is different. Sometimes were double minded. You know, and we want to be free one day, but we don't. The next and we have to get to that point of really hating that sin and wanting to be free when God comes in the deliver so that sometimes is the process going on. The reason it's delayed is because of our own double mindedness, sometimes the reason is that we need to take practical steps in other words, if if I'm working in the bar, I clean up the bar and I'm an alcoholic and every day I get free drinks because I work there and I'm struggling with alcohol. God help me to get free from alcohol.
I have to quit my job I have to get another job so sometimes we don't take the practical steps we need to take and because of that we don't get an answer. We don't need a miracle.
We just need to take practical steps and we do then then God will help us walk that out.
Another reason can be that we are in a fallen world, and that things are often battles their there are often long-term strongholds in our lives.
The result of many years of living a certain way and that, to turn the ship doesn't necessarily happen overnight and but out of that crying out out of that determination. Character is built.
In other words, such as the deliverance from the sin, but now a mindset of the heart and attitude has been raised up within us that is very different than the way were living. And then we can make that lasting turn so it could be again because a double mindedness.
It could be because they're simple, practical steps to take. It could be of because they're just deep issues that the take time to change our lives. And lastly every so often we need help from others.
Every so often it's the way God set things up were in a body were not independent. Sometimes there other gifted people that can help us know so a lot of former drug addicts work in ministries like teen challenge and they help people get discipled to start a new life because they they had the right foundations that were raised right things work. The outward sin is the manifestation of other problem areas in their lives. So now they just get an environment of encouragement, discipleship and discipline like an intensive year and that relays foundations in their life.
So those would be some of the potential reasons that it can sometimes let this be an instantaneous deliverance, but be assured that God does want to help you help anyone and give them lasting victory in areas with a struggle.

Welcome to the modifier. I can hear user yeah, thank you so much for the work are going and you think your going. Thank you.
I do have the I do have equation and obtain data maybe 21 about the about the code. The things that have never covered with like me to back out when I was younger, but now data married and that God has blessed me with everything and now the time to be blessed but I did not realize that the past few months from think about them. Sometimes a beauty parlor they eat it feeling like me.
Yeah, the point.com you know I like I'm trying to spend the night trying to find boxes to connect because they know assured that my calling to place other than they have to travel to do that and that means you have not been time for so I have that incomplete. He will be old YM, but now I can't even crop micrograph. Here the to me the green that I had with them, the media, something that we need to struggle with the checked meal.
Now David did David let let me jump in but first justice down okay justice down the book called restore the roar defeat the spirit of fear with the breath and power of God restore the roar and it's Pat and Karen Schatz line so S CH A-T CLI and E Pat Karen Schatz line but you restore the roar. That's all you need to get and you have the book title okay okay alright so first I recommend you read the book. I had Pat Karen on the year we talked about her battle with cancer and the fear of it but to listen. This can be crazy for you to hear this, but I understand. I I've never dealt with fear as a believer. Basically I do.
I don't I don't mean that that I'm happy to go on like the world's craziest roller coaster ride. You know, but in terms of ministry, fearful situations, danger, I was think about God says is I go for travel around the world loved it and enjoyed it. Crazy schedules crazy environments. The dangerous mob on the preached him.
I don't care no fear. So I was flying to Phoenix for a debate years ago with my friend rubbish movie and it was after an event in 2002 were I had been sick. I went out to ministry me to to service driving back on the fast food sandwich was eating it started which almost choked to death was found unconscious on the side of the road and sometime after the few years afterwards traveling I got hit with this. I looked like a panic attack I was on the plane was was an upgrade is that I was in the back and window seat and I just just felt squeezed in the next thing I like what you having a panic attack q. week as Extech can't be it's not possible. But somehow, some was triggered by like the almost being choked to death strangling that whole thing, whatever it was, you know, I talked a flight attendant, Dr. Constantine, I was completely embarrassed like what in the world. So I had to deal with that thing try to attack me for years. Fine. I never missed a flight. I never did get on the plane, but trust me, there were times when I did want to go on the plane when I wanted to get off the plane when a and and I had to find ways to get help and they would be before you preach. I get hit what you're going to collapse you dislike what in the world is going on so I was able to pray with some folks and and again, never stop me from ministering, but trust me, there was a battle and an attack and and I never did what you're saying but I can relate. Trust me I deeply, deeply relate and we were able to trace back some of the roots of war that was coming from and what was triggering it in prayer just just get God to get to the roots of it and get me free from it. You know and and and then just renew my most biggest thing and renew my mind to the freedom you know but anyway in my book Jezebel's war with America talk about the paralyzing fear is good. So I fear I said you're about to say paralyzing because I understand it, it's terrible. It's miserable.
It's part of this larger Jezebel like attack intimidated by fear but Pat and Karen will book that really focuses on soliciting once you get the book and read it and and work it through shoeless a note tell us if if God's really help you and and father right now. I pray for my brother David and we join together as a prayer team get to the root of the fear when it was triggering it and set him free for life in Jesus name, amen. 15 minutes from now asked Dr. Brown YouTube channel a SK DR Brown on YouTube right back there for 15 another program powered by the Truth Network
