Call 866-34-TRUTH to get on the line of fire and now there's your host Dr. Michael Brown on the line of fire or are you ready can I pour my heart out today.

Can I speak honestly. Can I share with you what's burning inside of me while I know I can and I know that's why you have tuned in to the broadcast knelt foam eyes are open any question you want to ask me of any kind that relates in any way to the content of this broadcast or to anything I've written. I think you got about 5 million words of writings to pick from and thousands of sermons to pick from. So anything you want to interact with me on 866-34-TRUTH it's 866-348-7884 and I mean it when I say I'm wide open to hear from those who differ with me on any number of subjects. Okay let me be as honest and clear as I can as is your voice for moral sanity and spiritual clarity. I have been grieved as many of you have over much of the state of the church in America for many years and in particular the charismatic church because that's what I've been part of special elements are preached in many settings all around the world. Of course all over America, but primarily I've been charismatic Pentecostal circle. So I've seen so much good.

I've seen so much, that's wonderful.

I've seen so much that's healthy that's thriving and I see a lot that's not healthy is not thriving. And of course it looked body as a whole. I'm not sitting here as the policeman I'm not sitting here is the corrector in chief.

I'm not sitting here is the answer I got it together oh know it all you were doing. I got it together. No, all of us live by mercy, all of us live by grace. If we got what we deserved.

Even as believers we be fried relived by mercy, by grace by the kindness of God and we need one another. So I am not here throwing stones. I just want to be honest and candid.

When I wrote the political seduction of the church is not to bash brothers or sisters. But to say we gotta get this right. We gotta get this right, especially with the 2022 midterms Lynn 2024 elections.

If we lose our vision if we get obsessed with politics, to the point that it blurs our vision of the Lord. If we become an appendage of of a political party.

If we compromise our ethics if we behave like politicians rather than as followers of Jesus having politicians in the negative sense of the word, then what good are we. If the salt is lost its saltiness. What good are we simply will you just care about what the left has to say.

You just care about that you want to look woke to people. You friends. I lost my credibility with the radical left a long time ago. Do you honestly think friends you honestly think for a minute that if I said I'm no longer voting for Donald Trump if he runs again.

I won't vote for him that MSNBC was all Dr. Brown. Please come on our show and tell us what you don't believe same-sex marriage is valid in God's sight. You think the New York Times reach out to music what you write an essay explaining why you oppose transgender activists using CNN with the whole week be so pleased if you come on and talk to us about why you believe abortion this is all love you the viewer will reach out to me and so Dr. Brown will harm to them a big and homophobic Transvaal bomb onto them at a fundamentalist hater I'm I'm not to be taken seriously on I may be good for quote here and there and talking generically.

I'm sure there individually good journalists in these different organizations that are seeking truth, and so on.

But all your appealing to the others you want to appear woke all yeah I'm going appear woke, I believe in one God and one holy book, the Bible and one way of salvation through Jesus. Yeshua alone for all people on the planet. I believe that there is a real devil. I believe that there are real demons.

I believe that there is a real heaven that there's a real help. All yeah I'm good to appear woke everybody's going like me all yeah if you don't support a particular political leader and you're still a fundamentalist Christian, the world's gonna love you know also that I hate you to be one thing if you renounce your faith to be one thing if you said there is no future punishment if you do one thing she said I don't believe the Bible is the word of God in your subnormal Christian. We are all love you so some of the book. You're just your say these things you wrote that book because your interior trying to appeal to those on the left to buy your book. All you come flocking they'll love Mike Brown books all yeah maybe they'll get some others, like Jezebel's war with America. The really like that one, or the silencing of the lambs, the ominous rise of cancer culture how we can overcome.

I'm sure one of their new favorites will be outlasting the gay revolution. All I'm going to become one of the all the beloved of the woke crowd friends.

We've crossed the line as followers of Jesus.

We've crossed the line I doing what I'm doing and saying what I'm saying in many ways speaking for you with the platforms that I have because though the world has been laughing at us. The world has been mocking us that the world is not taken as seriously beat because we compromised their testimony in so many ways.

Just look at the way we treated each other.

Just look at how rather than uniting around Jesus, we divide over Trump were ever you stood for him or against him.

The way we treat one another was shameful in the way that some of us it will put our whole trusted all perennial exhibit goes down is over.

As long as God is God's not over all, you just don't care about the way the Democrats were things I care deeply. I haven't voted for Democrat candidate maybe ever in my lifetime. Maybe I did.

When Jimmy Carter was running and I was a new believer in her become a born-again president the first time. And of course Reagan after that this unregistered independent but just my own convictions.

The way voted on deeply grieved very concerned about where things are going. It could get really really bad it could get much worse than is that it could be were broadcast like this get shut down by the federal government could be agog. It was another platform. Another way to get the message out. More people try to kill it stifle it.

The lateral get but it could be really bad. I fully aware that I've been warning about for years and years and years, but as long as Jesus is Lord. That's what matters and it could be the going through adversity.

The church will grow and get healthier and give up some of our foolishness and get back to preach the gospel while we stay involved politically by all means we should stay involved politically by all means we should not abdicate by all means, even though it's a fallen, corrupt system because you got people running it people involved in it. By all means we should not abandon it, we should raise up godly people run for school board city Council and pray for godly people to be raised up right up to the president and for those in office.

We should be praying for their conversion and their salvation and end all along the way we should vote should be informed. I encourage pastors to speak out about moral and cultural issues so the flocks are informed and these are the things the kids are dealing with school, it's that's if informants equip the receipt to do every day here in future with faith and truth. Encourage this. Our goal that's are calling our purpose. By all means, but not at the cost of our testimony, not at the cost of a witness. Yes, people will lie about us, but please hear me when the name of Jesus is mocked because of us. We speak as a charismatic movement. Let me share my heart for moment as a charismatic when the name of Jesus is mocked because of our failed prophecies in our false prophecies that should grieve every one of us.

When the things of the spirit are mocked because people not only got things wrong, but they refuse to repent and acknowledge it just added false prophecy to false prophecy that should grieve all of us and listen. Many of you know I differ with some of my brothers who are critics of charismatic Pentecostal things, who I believe go too far in their criticism, and often right people off who are believers, but in error and and and sometimes through the baby out with the bathwater. You know of differ with it and some I feel are doing instructive work because of their methodology, but let me be as plain as I can be.

If we as charismatics and Pentecostals cleaned up our own mess cleaned up her own house and took more responsibility and and and had more accountability and didn't exist sometimes into some flaky fantasy world were to say anything can be said anything goes. Then these men and women would need to do a lot of what they're doing because as much as I differ with some of what they're doing or how they do. So what they do, somebody's gotta do it if we don't do it, then there is a look at this mess and and they will. Fair enough.

Make a mockery of some of the stupid things we've done yeah I'm totally at home in a meeting with the Holy Spirit falls in and people are shaking in his presence because the power of God is there lay hands on thousands of people see the power of God touch them, ready to follow the other days did you pray for me.

Three years ago the fire of God fell in the lives that I haven't been the same your message. Touch me and then you pray for as the fire got fell I been braces.

I haven't been the same estimate, loving God and walking hole and I rejoice with it. Some people have a problem with it okay we differ. Some people say it was really God they would be shaking okay. We differ we can have some differences. Some people say if it's really God people be healed. 100% of the time and onto not fine.

We differ fair enough, but I fully understand why some critics have done what they done it they see all the prophecies about covert it's going to end by dissipate, but by Passover of 2020 doesn't happen in the people. He prophesied that can't continue. Donald Trump will serve eight years in the White House, such as when elected, will serve eight consecutive years in the White House is going to happen doesn't happen just dance what we can't do that Sesser with the political seduction of the church friends of the burden for the bride. If you have the book. I really encourage you to get get on a website Esther to or online. Amazon you get the Kindle version or other websites as well. Make sure you read it the second chapter.

Drink it in drinking deeply because that chapter will give you a picture of what Jesus is called his bride to be. We take hold of that will be jealous to represent him rightly in my sleep in your life. 66 line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown right now on YouTube. You have a question you'd like to ask me or comment you'd like me to interact with the grips of your YouTube questions and comments will haven't done that in a while. The first computer favor just help get this message out to more people to watch on YouTube just click on the thumbs up, take a second click on the thumbs up their great-nephew got a question this put Esther to Brown at the beginning of it at Esther to Brown, civil spotter team will spot it more readily enemy grips and YouTube questions as well as some comments are right 866-348-7848 6634 truth is the number to call any question of any kind to be a Bible question theology? We go totally off topic with some your calls. Now I just want you to know I am scheduled to leave for Poland tomorrow and then do three days of ministry in Poland Friday Saturday Sunday because of that we have some special programming the skin becoming awake the next three days all yours truly, but I will be able to take life calls and then Monday is my day of travel back, doubling we've got special programming. I really believe you can be blessed by the broadcast and stirred, encouraged and informed by by the shows but I will be able to take life call so if you want to call him of the question will vest on Thursday or Friday. That's why we've open the phones yesterday and today's will, 866-348-7884 okay just got a note from daily wire. They let me know when will my article. Supposedly I been writing the additions of articles on other websites every week. I'm really writing for general articles for all websites and the one exclusive for the stream. James Robison's publication stream daughter works in only five articles a week, but I've added a little bit.

Since daily wire reached out to be back in April to start writing content for them and I been writing probably an average a couple of articles a week so this is for daily wire subscribers, but I think they've got close to a million subscribers. By now I guess so it's it's a lot of folks we get to to share with Emil most of the content of what I'm writing for daily wire is biblical in nature. Yes so so good to do that and my latest article for daily wire subscribers is called brood of vipers.

The sun equate the sharp words of Jesus with today's angry rants and what what often happens is this went when I encourage folks and say look but speak the truth in love, let's let's go to what Paul wrote in Ephesians 429 that that nothing unwholesome to come out of our mouths, but only that which is good for the cure was to help the here all go to Colossians 46 that says that her speech should always be grateful grace and season with salt.

Ephesians 4 earlier that we speak the truth in love, that people seriously week rendered spin week. Lots of extra I would be like to Jesus that the call of the Pharisees called brood of vipers, I would be strong. Your two week you like the hippie Jesus in turn the other cheek a peaceful Jesus did say that that we should pray for those who persecute us that we should bless those who curse us right and that we should not retaliate on. He did say all of that, that's turn the other cheek, but but it and in point of fact, when Jesus rebuked the religious hypocrites. He did so out of love strong words, but because he loved people sometimes really staggered it out and give you piece of my mind, am I the only one who has responded quickly and then post the go. When I do that sometimes he retakes at somebody and you can pull out one back. You can't delete that there done that left a voicemail prematurely before you process something our last show will. Jesus did not speak out of the flesh, but out of the spirit. And then Jesus died for those people that he rebuked that hello we have is of the kind of love we get a loan you weep for those people in prayer crowd to God to to to help them that's gonna love you because when you do that, because we are called to rebuke. It's through the Bible is through the whole Bible. If you did want to subscribe. You can read the full article it's through the whole Bible, this call to rebuke and correct. So the question question is do we really care about the people we rebuke our hearts breaking for them or is it just angry with you. How dare you do that to him.

That's not righteous anger. That's fleshly anger. Jesus spoke with God gave the speak about really to say that post I just posted blasting somebody that was by the spirit.

So let's not compare our angry rhetoric with the words of Jesus.

Fair enough that some fair enough, 866-34-TRUTH. Let's go to the phones Paul in California. Welcome to the line of fire throughout. Hey for the minister. I learned a lot about their benefit will thanks hey Paul, what link we think are you speaking directly into your phone because it's a bit of a bad connection little authority. This got me on speaker is something you can speak directly into the phone. It would help our listeners immensely okay. Arianna got bigger. Hang on hang on. We all forgive you. Paul. But that's like. That's the radio, transgression man, I believe forgive you don't know if you are okay, yeah, yeah, my question my question or regard. There have.

I'm a firm believer of the work of the Spirit under the spirit as well on an I grew up I iconic the target of their support.

I had her encounter with the false Holy Spirit in our pursuit to monitor all not to go to contributors. The long story, but I was just not I really want to have you had experienced the encounter with the harvester to confront general false Holy Spirit both this church or different contact and an even even if you have examples of the working of the Senate of the spirit and conquer.

Yes, so St. Paul again. I can track with your own experience and asking me to because I have to sit in and find out the whole history details number one court. I have come under attack by demonic spirits is right right knew for a fact this is a demonic spirit attacking. It could've been physically or otherwise work. What right knew you not. I remember distinctly the night after very intense confrontation with some really demonize people going going back home getting in bed and I was on the right side of of our bed. That's were sleep on the right side that's in the left, and I distinctly felt something someone touch my right shoulder.

So again it's on the far side of the bed distinctly felt someone touch my ritual. What was that woke up the next morning with 104 fever ended up with pneumonia and I got hit with viral or bacterial pneumonia. At the same time that was most distinct demonic attacks in that regard. I've had other things were people were delivered and there is some demonic pushback's of course of encounter that I've seen people who claim to be speaking by the spirit but were were either just in the flesh or in some cases operating under a demonic spirit. I've seen many times where people said I had this confirmation that confirmation and or is some specific instances come to my and I said that's contrary to the word or contrary to what we know the Lord sent you and those like the spell broke. There was a composer just like tests but I would say Paul that the the thing that is most real to me right now is that I have to believe that on some level, some of those who falsely prophesied, trumps the election were demonically deceived. Some were presumptuous.

In other words, they got it right in 2016. They just kind of felt the same way and were presumptuous and thought they get it right again in 2020, and I deal with this is a whole chapter in my book the political seduction of the church about the false prophecies.

Then the another chapter in the genesis of false prophecy how it happened. Some just got caught up with the crowd. All these people prophesying trumps reelection. They prophesied it as well. But those who claim to have supernatural dreams and visions encounters with a were told the Trump will be eight years in the White House, then in less it's just figments of their own imagination. They've got a very fruitful imagination and is just figments of their own imagination. In some cases, I do believe that they came under deceiving spirit that their lives were so out of line with God that they've open themselves up over the years to so much false revelation that rather than seeking God and his truth. They just open themselves up to these encounters that God gave them over to deceiving spirits. I'd have to believe that that happened in some cases as a spoken in a different context. In second Thessalonians 2 were were the answer Chris. God gives people over to deception because they refused to love the truth so those that would not be corrected. Those that have departed from truth of Scripture and a lot of exterior revelation for years.

No surprise if they're given over to deception that's a dreadful dangerous thing to think about a Paul, I appreciate the call will get back with more of your calls, 866-348-7884 is the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown got on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown 7884.

Do you get my emails. We've got a really important a blaster about to send out old big news really good news about to send out emails you won't know all so go the website asked her to Brown, the SK your and sign up for our E blast will put your welcome tour if not more about my testimony from LSD to PhD more about our 3Rs revival in the church gospel based moral culture revolution society and redemption in Israel. Speaking of Israel brother Jerry on YouTube was wonder what my take on the red heifers being taken to Israel so II talked about it on the broadcast last Thursday so Jerry can check out the broadcast line of fire from last Thursday. So from what five days ago and just to say very quickly. I never pay attention to these things myself but because it is big news for orthodox rabbis in Israel and gets not all rabbis, but many and gets them talking more about the coming of the Messiah, than that's that's a positive.

To me that's of interest to me it's it's interesting that they came from a Christian farm in Israel Christian scientists.

The file name I believe is Bonilla's veil which is builder of Israel. So go the builder of Israel there participating with them. I guess that I was looking at it but five red heifers and and is a Blemish.

I guess you have some identification like we pierce the ear and would and would put some in the earlobes identification, but they didn't do that because that would a blemish that so these Christians are very much aware of what's happening there. So that's what interest me.

I will follow the prophecy thing myself with the effects of interest to religious Jews in Israel interest me all right let us go to Joshua in St. Cloud, Florida. Welcome to the line of fire by Dr. Brown how are you doing well. Thank you think McCall should have a question regarding the property.

Remember that I called out couple months back and you mentioned that I get to respond, but you mentioned that drop it through the church there.

You know I do not enter the country. They said but something about there being profit throughout the age of the church and I wanted to ask you about the specific profit the you know like them by name, or is there a specific work that they've written or anything like that that I can look up or is it just something that others have said is wrong. She sings, but by the way, I appreciate the fact that you think so highly of my memory that I remember every call, but I do happen to remember because your name was spelled differently than normal so that's the area that's either there okay little advantage or from several different name. I remember better okay number one, I've made the statement that I believe that there been profits operating through church history, even if we haven't called them by that name.

So, I don't mean that everyone is had the title profit or it was looked at as your giving prophecy, but I believe there been many prophetic voices. For example, Francis Schaeffer, I look at as a prophet people. Others would've called and that of course he was a Christian philosopher, but I believe that he had prophetic insight and that he function as a prophet. I've seen people that are non-charismatic, their Baptists, but I believe they they speak as profits they have insight by the spirit is what's happening in the world and and speak for the Lord in these ways that sin, thus saith the Lord, but still prophetic people. So on the one hand, those people you just go through history. Sometimes it's the reformers it's the ones that were bringing wake-up calls to their generation.

They would be the prophets and their and their generation. David Wilkerson would refer to Leonard Ravenhill as as as a prophet or a W toes are. Even though he never would've taken the title. They recognize that prophetic calling on his life. So that's just a generic thing I've upset. As for attestation of prophecies that you have church leaders talking about through history different centuries gifts being operating demons being driven out sick being healed. Prophecies being given.

Yet you have different examples of that you very usable compilation is by Eddie Hyatt HY ATT 2000 years of charismatic history.

I think that's the name it's simply about to what I was going to try have the name exactly right. If you look it up but that's that's a book you can get and it'll just list things.

Let's see here 2000 charismatic yet Eddie Hyatt HY ATT 2000 Hyatt it a try.

ATT 2000 years of charismatic Christianity.

So this is just a book you can go through and you may accept every example using may have difference here and there but bottom line is that you will see many examples through history of church leaders speaking about this. Speaking of miracle. Speaking of healing. Speaking of demons being prevailed. Speaking prophecy the whole idea that this ceased when the canon was completed, which is of course is a completely un-biblical illogical argument, and his historically false.

On top of it. It really breaks down when you look through church history so that that's nice for the ago had good sorry. I think that every time I dialogue with someone about prop B or the charismatic good. I end up realizing that we have different definitions of what profit is. For example I have friends that I love you not there, my brothers and all but don't go talk to me about prophet who can prophesy falsely and I think there's a big difference between what I consider true profit what they consider true prophet and I think that name-calling one another is just not helpful and I learned the more clarity in these discussions, even though I know that people may have assumptions about me even though I don't like the comic book of the patient. I do believe in the continuation of the good. I just don't. I don't see any real clear-cut examples of how it was in and I know that a lot of my friends will tell me that while it was different in the time of the apostles because there was somehow. You know more mightier backbend or something like that what they would say, but I did. I just I'm afraid that I have so many friends to our nonbeliever or nonbelievers that are confused by what charismatics often say that that I know you have been subdued again. There's two sides to this one is there's been a lot of foolishness.

I just addressed it earlier in the show and we brought reproach and we've we've made a mockery of the things of the spirit. We propose to the name of Jesus for the gospel. We've heard of the Christians by some of her charismatic foolishness. I grieve over that that's on us. That's her lack of accountability. That's our our lack of policing things within within our own movement and that shameful. That's one side of it and I don't deny it, and I don't I don't diminish the seriousness of it.

On the other side.

It's very clear in the New Testament that prophecy is to be tested that everyone Paul writes you can all prophesy, so everyone potentially could prophesy by the spirit to the point that Paul has to write in first Thessalonians 5 don't despise prophecies if if it was all powerful words and and nobody ever spoke in the flesh. No one is ever out of order and nothing ever came that seem strange or obscure, he would need to say that in and then AIDS is also the one don't not the Spirit's fire test everything and hold fast to the good. This is something that's supposed to be happening in an ongoing way our church is there's there's not a stitch of Scripture not a stitch of Scripture that hits in any way that this activity will stop or that those words that Paul spoke of in first Corinthians 14, when he says eagerly desire the gifts especially should prophesy is unassailable.

In Scripture that rescinds that the take setback. Therefore, if we can be Bible people word people should be eagerly pursuing the gifts especially we can prophesy and understand that there has to be testing and critical judgment because potentially everyone can do it and therefore you may have something for the Lord and share it and and and you went on sharing too much God gave you something and you added to it so this correction that's brought as opposed to stone the person because this is not a national prophet speaking to the nation when no one else has the spirit in that same way, their massive distinctions. There yeah I guess I would have to disagree with the idea that true profit. For example, I go about people say that on yet inaccurate prop Through the Scriptures that and I miss you question Joshua Mr. question first Kings 19 God tells Elijah that he is to anoint because L King of wrong.

He he is to anoint Jay, who King of Israel and Elisha as his successor. This is a word from the Lord to him.

Okay does that happen over what first Kings chapter 19 this is that this is the word that that God gives them.

I first Kings chapter 19 I just want to ask if this this is God speaking to. This is not for profit.

This is a direct word from the Lord and hero of a reader to for those that are Lord said to him, go back. By the way you came this verse 15 onto the wilderness of Damascus when you get there.

Anoint because L is king.

Overall, anoint Jay, who some of them. She is king of Israel and anoint Elisha Sen. Shaw thought of as of April, Holland to succeed was profit right did Elijah do that I have to go ahead look into it. He didn't. He he only anointed Elisha Elisha then had the prophetic word for house L.

And Elisha sent someone to anoint Jay so you can send Douglas a false prophet based on the criteria God spoke falsely or could be just like I got was his prophecy and X 21 that it doesn't always unfold exactly as we spent with was spoken. Overall is true but often prophetic language. Things don't unfold exactly as we expect certain instead of that, Joshua based on your criteria would you say that God prophesy falsely would you say some things unfold in ways a little different than we expect and belong to the whole thing out like a man talking again.

I will light a fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown got on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown are broadcast. If you think of me.

Listen to the broadcast of the days ahead a pray for safe travels to Poland for the first time of been out of the US. The 200 times include Canada and Mexico overseas over hundred 60 times slotted trips a lot of hours a lot of flights and that's something I enjoy doing. Love to be with the people of the country 00 meetings a great of the ensuing meetings, Indonesia, South Africa.

You have to leave the house. India, but the way that I love being with people of experiencing God with them together and even though I've been to Europe scores and scores and scores of times of their been to Poland so really looking forward to this. Thanks for praying will meet those hungry and thirsty.

There and it will because what its six hour time difference is not as bad as some places words 1214 hrs. time differential but six hours time difference and then travel that like things in a good size ministry schedule so pray for rest, strengthen, and for the clarity of the word.

The spirit to the touch.

The people are really appreciated and I think you can enjoy each day of special broadcasting. We have prepared for you. I with that we go back to the phones will start in Dayton Ohio. Glenn walking to the line of fire. Dr. Brown I just wanted to call this afternoon and I just wanted to say thank you so much. I'm very thankful also for the Truth Network and and our program.

What programs like yours the mortgagors I listen every day on my way home from work and my dad used to be a Baptist preacher in Indiana and grown up a preacher's kid. As many of your listeners may know, you really live under a a spectacle and I had got away from the church for a long long time. I saw the politics of it. I really appreciate what you're highlighting with the way that it can sour the milk so to speak, both outside of the church in business inside of the church just got absolutely sick of it and my father always have the painting hanging in front of the entryway of our homeless. As for me and my house we will serve the Lord, almost to an extent that the kind of forced us to do so.

So I had not only walked away from the church but ran and now I'm much more freely on my own able to listen to your broadcast very interesting conversations that you engage in and provoke us to think about owners your quick story with you. I recently took my boy out fishing as we love to do and my boy man with his words. At eight years old. He he just convicted me on my shoes just about he said no when you're fishing. As you may or may not realize a lot of times you want to be as quiet as possible so that you don't scare the fish so to speak the word out there and it's coming on the dust can and I'm a boy says to me at eight years old that if we get lost in the woods. Do you think the bill sending want to send anyone to come looking for some and I civil leukocytes that I would like to think that if we take off in the woods were to be able to find a way back out, but yes, surely if we get lost in the woods and were gone a while.

Surely the goodness mom will send someone looking for us.

So a little bit goes by you and and he still thinking and I'm just wanting to be quiet, but he still thinking in his mind still working.

He said that I was recently watching the YouTube video and he said these guys were out fishing at sea. One guy fell overboard and after his crew realized he'd fallen overboard. They turned around the search warning, but they couldn't.

Finding they had to get the Coast Guard helicopter involved and as they came up to search and look boring, but the Coast Guard finally found in his own men didn't but it took the Coast Guard helicopter to find him and he was cold and he was scared Micah Boyd Luca but he sure was happy he was. He was found and saved and he said oh yeah, that he was he was freezing cold. So another 30 seconds or so goes by, and he says dad and I said yes. Luke just want him to be quiet at this point and and slowly sinking in and creeping on me, so I'm doubly wanting him to settle down with this conversation. He said that he said if we die and go to hell, not even God is going to come to save us. There now while I mean along at yellow stuff fee is always said that he will my father was a preacher and pastor and so was my grandfather. People always ask me and I said no, no, no, I'm not a preacher. I don't have no interest in obscene the, the business member that my thought, I'm not interested but my boy probably tells folks that he wants to be a game warden in a preacher both and I laugh laugh at it because he says he wants to save animals and save people, and I love him to death. What a tremendous blessing that the kid is valid.

It's not all safety. I'm sorry didn't address it but thank you for the good word that's quite a story. If we die and go to hell believing God can send people to find us there are save us from their cross that line. There is this no return. There is no U-turn.

There is no take it back is no Mulligan out.

Do I get another shot. Losers were and thank you for sharing this. Dayton, Ohio, get a couple big stations in Ohio and the Truth Network that we got on the last year or so, so, so glad to have you as our listeners make sure that pass that on to her friends that the truth accordance going. Thank you so much and you believe may have a little more preacher and you then you realize yeah I think so think so alright let's go to Lancaster, California Keisha, welcome to the line of fire. Thank you Dr. Brown call. Thank you so really quickly on number one.

I have been I'm no longer there. Number two, bought my husband and I love you both work HOW awful separate income or I cover I will have the head of the house is good that can answer the second question first. Think of in terms of get to not have to get to do we get the ties on all the income or just part how much of your income. Do you want God to bless how much of your income. Has God helped you to earn.

That's what you should ties from so if if you believe in tithing then yeah it's on everything and you're saying the firstfruits of everything we get more belong to you may want to honor you with that.

And as you do the bless. I remember pastor someone said to him, to be tied on the net or the gross. He says what part you want God to bless them that, or the growth the gross and you can don't do it in a legalistic way doing roughly, I encourage you to meditate on. Second Corinthians 8, and nine significance eight and nine and then go from there. Okay.

As for attending different church that's for you and your husband to decide who it's it's not ideal, it's not. It's not the best situation because you want to be impacted together. You want to serve together you will be involved together. You know, in many many ways it's it's it's counterproductive because you can't operate as a couple in the church. You can bring your gifts together to the church, you can't receive together if you're in a situation. We're just kinda climb in the wall. If you had any another outlet you noted to go to like Sarah go with you. And so the more but I really want to go this midweek Bible study or the Sunday night service or take this and on YouTube or something of try to do that. If he says hey look right now. During the season.

It's not ideal, but you go here and I'll go there again.

It's not an ideal situation, especially for kids you're bringing them in regulation. But if he says hey you do that. I do this, but we know it's just temporary until we can get God's mind and figure out a solution. Obviously sucked into the world and that's that for the tube you sit to work out you don't say that ever yeah go ahead and go hand back there and my relationship with them before we met together for 20 clear and we've been going to church maybe about eight or nine of the year and I packed three or four years, he still does, but also in the health ministry and thank you.have a really close relationship with them as well. But before Navy Titanic, you know. Imagine what they eat and I'll try to balk at their church in the first and I live but you really really want to stay there and I'm like I want to be. I really want to get into chargeback about having been in a church for the pandemic act as the yearly people want you to do my Bible study every day I happened to be desired are not ability. It is not.

I just minutes is just just jump in just think just because of got that in the show coming up.

Listen, if your husband gives you his blessing to be married 22 years right so if if his husband if your husband gives you his blessing and your glycerol since arriving in bless the health and he's serving you know it it again is not ideal, but what if he wasn't saved you know you be in different settings. What if he was in a traditional church. It did know the Lord. So you're to be a vibrant church if if you can do it with his blessing and with harmony and it's not hurting relationship, then who am I to tell you not to so may the Lord guide you and and may you both find his very very best will and plan friends is my prayer that the smiley golf course for future closer to the Lord, you have been that he revealed himself fresh placements.
