The following is a prerecorded program you got some great questions today. We got answers for you right here on the line of fire is time for the light a fire with your host will scholar and cultural commentator Dr. Michael Brown your voice for more savvy and spiritual clarity called 866-34-TRUTH to get on the line of fire and now there's your host Dr. Michael Brown has I am in Poland there the first time some nationwide meetings with the brief for God to move in that country and got intense schedule through the weekend so if you could remember to pray, that would be awesome. Obviously, because I'm in Poland right now at the moment that you're listening to this I can't be taking her calls but I solicited questions a few days ago on twitter all right got a bunch of really interesting questions and I get to get to as many as possible.

So sit back, enjoy the broadcast I believe you will be blessed all right. Let's start with identity in Christ Jesus is praying for us to save.

As stated in the Bible. Is it possible for there to be people who he didn't pray for who aren't prayed for by a single person. If so, it should motivate us and encourage us to pray for those who aren't saved. Of course there are people who pray for the entire world. All right, so the fact that Jesus prays for believers in John 17 does not mean that he is not actively seeking to draw all people to himself.

I believe that he is the John 1232 Jesus says, if I be lifted up so meaning both on the cross and then as we lift them up. He said I will draw all men to me. So I believe on a daily basis.

On the moment by moment basis based on Scripture around the world. God is drawing people to his son and says in first Timothy two that he wants all meant to be saying I don't simply take that to mean all categories is my Calvinist friends do this to many other verses that speak of God's desire for everyone to repent and believe. I believe he desires all people to come to his son and because he works with us that many times when he wants to work in someone's life.

He lays it on our hearts to pray for them. Sometimes we take the initiative out of a burden. Sometimes God takes the initiative the ultimate initiative though is always taken by God because he starts the outreach before we even care so yes, our prayers make a difference, but don't think that will.

Jesus prays for this one and I will got left out.

I better pray for them, just prays you feel led greater burdens prays you meet people that need the Lord all right this is a statement from Wayne TV or read it, even though it's not a question but it contains typical anti-Semitic tropes. Typical anti-Semitic stereotype similar read it to expose it. For that reason, is a Jewish families owned the central banks, a majority of global 1000 there.

The globalist puppeteers don't notice because they control the media read creature of Jekyll Island. It's all a matter of public record and not conspiracy theory though they program that association in you going.

The fact of the matter is I've studied these issues for decades and through the centuries. Different lies have been raised against the Jewish people, Jewish people were powerless in country after country, and cast out of country after country effect, or sometimes the only real jobs they can get work when the minutes of the got into banks because they couldn't do other work, there was still being lied about. This is just the latest live. The fact is, if Jews control the world media there would not be such world hatred of Jewish people, but world adoration of Jewish people, Jewish people to just pull the strings of what's happening globally. Then Israel would not still be so hated Jewish people around the world would not be so persecuted, led us grow up to reality and cast out these conspiracy theories which are just that Jews in America have a disproportionate influence based on their numbers. Yes sir gaze based on their numbers was at Missouri worldwide gay conspiracy, this time with all Jewish gaze having how far you go with us and when you look say the site the sexual revolution of America was built by Zionists, you know it's interesting, but Alfred Kinsey and you Hefner the fathers of the sexual revolution in America were both raised in Gentile Christian homes actually strict tones.

They rebelled against that enough with this nonsense okay Josh Billy Graham said something about evil Jewish people owning the banks Nvidia where people get this from the more they believe it's interesting these things were posted about an hour apart.

Billy Graham made some comments that he regretted to Richard Nixon and apologized for them to get the exact nature of them, but he did apologize categorically many many years ago, but Jewish people through the years because of a calling by God on our lives to be world changers and world impactors. If we get things right.

We do a lot of good.

Think of the prophets of Israel think of Moses Lake of Paulding of Peter and of course the Messiah himself the center of the Jewish people. We get things wrong it really wrong by Karl Marx and communism were George Soros today find these ultra leftist groups and in organizations and individuals so we have a disproportionate influence ugly because a call you for good or bad. So then it gets exaggerated and there are all kinds of of Hollywood producers in Hollywood directors and and and Hollywood leaders behind the scenes when a Jewish probably of Steven Spielberg's Miller had Artie wants is all Jews, so all you need is a few examples and it becomes everybody in that it becomes exaggerated and we take the little picture that we have in America.

And then we exploded all around the world.

Go back to American history hundred years ago and see much power juicer go back 200 years ago.

So much influence due to go back to country after country around the world.

The Jews were kicked out of those countries because they wouldn't get baptized become Christians and see and see how much influence they've had again standard disburses there is with these specific ones come from as the protocols of the Elders of Zion. So look into that.

These are still widely believe this true forgeries by Russian police over hundred years old but look into the protocols of the elders design because that's where these current myths come from all right in let's see this, try to get one per person.

David Christian still under the law of tithing as set forth in the Old Testament was adjusted freely give.

Now what you feel led to do actually wrote an article on that. The Bible really says about tithing in daily wire for subscribers or if you happen to be a subscriber. There you can read that also is, website ask ADR ask Dr. just check their search for tithing and you'll see more full teaching I've done on it. In short, I do not believe as New Testament believers that we are under the law of tithing.

However, we are called to generosity. We are called to sacrificial giving. We are called to systematic giving.

We are called to give the firstfruits we are called to give proportionately. So I believe that the tithe is a great practice is a great discipline is something that says I take the first 10% of what comes in and give it back to God. I believe the principle of honoring him first is important in doing it proportionately is important so those that make $1 million a year giving 100,000 or more.

Those that make $10,000 here.

Give me a thousand or more.

It's proportional, but as you go through all the principles the teaching of Jesus and then in the writings of Paul is you'll see these principles that we are called to give that we are called to give generously given sacrificially at times that we are called to give proportionately systematically in the first week of even first Corinthians 16. As Paul was receiving and offering to help the poor Jewish we was in Jerusalem he said the first of every week put aside money. So this the first thing you do is put aside money for the gospel of obviated aviator. It's obvious, or aviator, would you vote for Trump if you were to somehow win the GOP nomination for the office of president in 2024. I don't know that this time around I'm even get a share who I'm voting for you to pray for God's wisdom and whether it's good for me to assure that publicly or not there quite freely in the past under pray about whether I should in the future. Let me simply say this.

I believe we can do better this time around that with all respect to the good Donald Trump did. There is too much baggage with him and too much collateral damage. We have plenty of time to select another candidate.

I believe the most important thing is the witness of the church.

Even more importantly than the candidate in the White House that the man that the woman that sits in the White House so just be plain now.

I would love us to see a different candidate for the Republicans and was the Democrats radically dramatically completely change their platform and and get rid of all the bad stuff that's in there and the pro-abortion and pro-LGBT Q trans extremism and other things missing were those things. I couldn't even countenance for split-second voting Democrat. All right, Stuart can a Christian eat blood sausage or black putting both of which would have blood in can they yes should they know can lay well irregular hell for doing it. That's one thing and another thing is it will actually defile you spiritually because what you eat goes in your mouth and leaves your body exits out of the disposal system. So what you eat doesn't defile you.

Jesus lays it out in Matthew 15 Mark seven.

However, it's a violation of the sacredness of blood is a failure to recognize that the life of the flesh is in the blood and therefore there is sacredness to blood now I have you ever cut your finger pierces that all first thing you do is you suck the blood or I can go to hell for that is all I got. But I believe that generally speaking, when it comes to actually eating things I that the blood is sacred because the life is in the blood and we are to recognize that and therefore not eat it so should they. In my view, know, and I believe acts 15 would back that up. Can they yes all right Scott. Jews do not believe Jesus is the Messiah Jesus is the only way to heaven is through him believing he is the Messiah, the Jewish people go to heaven. There, God's chosen people again and again they go against this teaching is this correct thinking being chosen also means having greater responsibility. Amos 31 God says there's really only have I known, out of all the families of the earth. Therefore, I will visit you all punish you more severely for your iniquities Jewish people go to heaven the same as anyone else to faith in the Messiah through repentance, to the mercy of God that God is the judge of every individual.

God is the judge of a traditional Jewish person who never once heard the truth message of the gospel saw the side of the entity was God's I tell you today is a lot like God, Messiah, the 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.

I guess today is because I am in Poland and not broadcasting live to really pray the fire got the full really pray that the believers there would be deeply and dramatically impacted the evangelical church in Poland is very small compared to the population compared to the that the number of Catholics in many of the Catholics or leaving the faith, especially younger ones, and many others are caught up in a very traditional faith instantly connected them to God. In any case, it's a place that is ripe for the gospel in Protestant, Catholic and nonreligious circles of pray for the fire to fall. Also, I'd love to stay in touch with you.

All right, let's answer ministry apologist. Please address the objection that the Passover lamb doesn't take away sins by Toby Singer likes to bring that one up and why we should accept the way the New Testament quotes or uses the turnoff the Hebrew Bible. Toby seems to think that an interpretation is invalid if it's taken out of its context that some Italian true, so why do we listen when Jesus of the apostles do it for those who have been troubled by videos by counter missionary Toby Singer who is become increasingly aggressive in recent years and, increasingly, overtly attacking the faith of Christians, we have a series of videos with continuing to put out more. Rebutting him point of all you need to do is watch one or two where we expose his faulty methodology and demolish a shock, he almost every one of his videos and I've looked at.

I am afflicted. If he's got a thousand out maybe elected 20 or 30 all right but every single one of looked at the dozens that people asked me about that is for unbelievable misstatement. I like him watching Sean how could you say that so you need to do is watch a few bars, rebutting his and demolishing the falsehoods and you'll know. Hey, I don't need to worry about what is putting out and you go back to feeling secure in the word of God and in your faith, so as for the Passover lamb.

This was the Lamb, by which God passed over Israel and did not judge, which brought them liberation from Egypt was, it would've died in Egypt so because of its liberating role because of its role that that the blood of the Lamb. Then, because the angel of death to pass over. That's why issue is, is referred to as the Passover lamb also elsewhere in Scripture. Like Isaiah 53 the Messiah is pictured as a lamb without blemish or as a lamb. Excuse me, that goes to the slaughter quietly so in in in that way the Lamb image the Lamb picture fits but Messiah fulfills the entire sacrificial system that's just part of the city been comfortable also the prophets, but to fulfill. Three brings all these things to the phone when it comes to why we should take the New Testament seriously, it's because it rightly interpreted in light of Messiah. Messiah did come into the world. He did die persons. He did rise from the dead, that the authors of the New Testament were eyewitnesses to the issue it came from the father himself into this world and perfectly understood the word so they can point back to everywhere where he is foreshadowed.

Sometimes it's a direct and explicit prophecy born there.

It is that we all went astray. The Lord laid on him the iniquity of us all direct prophecy. There it is being born in Bethlehem. Direct prophecy others are foreshadowing's. Others are technological but what you have to understand is, once he came into the world, died, rose from the dead. They all saw his reality. Now he goes back and opens draws there is it's crystal clear. Have you ever watched a movie maybe a suspense thriller when those who done it. Movies from decades ago, and you're watching the and this was the onus that the Butler notes the maid notes the visitor know if this will not know if that and and then at the end is revealed who it is.

The next time you watch it's like EAA I see it I see it now much more clearly.

That's what happened with the disciples. They were eyewitnesses to the Messiah's death, resurrection they saw the miracles that he wore. They saw him open blind eyes and raise the dead, they saw him draw all attention to his heavenly father that they they and then also the prophecy spoke of destruction of the Temple. Other things so those come to pass. So now they go back and look there is it's always now the Hebrew Bible, and ultimately things are taken right and proper context.

When fully understood. All right, let's see here reverse the raw does the Lord give politicians and magistrates authority to put asunder, whom the Lord has made one flesh is custody: four kidnap okay we are under the laws of the land unless those laws contradict God's laws. So if we get married and we are married by the state. We are legally married by the state and also in God's sight. If we have divorce laws in our state. Then we can be divorce that may be sinful in God's sight may be no-fault and in no reason for but it it may be valid in the eyes of the law may be valid in the eyes of man. In that case, the divorce has its its legal implications out if the judge unjustly sinfully gives custody to someone who will be abusing those children and that must be for legally every way possible to take them oneself would be be wrong, but got to do everything you can legally get those kids out of their.

That being said, if you knew that their lives were in danger than you do Due to deal. It but if you don't believe someone should have custody in the courts given custody is that kidnapping may feel like that to you legally it's just going with the court system. That's how it has to be fought then of course if your believer with much prayer Frank. Why was the Bible character David allowed to go to heaven after having hundreds of wives and sex slaves. But any type of repentance for those sins. I think you're talking about Solomon and we don't know how Solomon died. We know that there was judgment because he worshiped idols, among other things, that was that the height of his sin. So I think you're thinking of Solomon 300 wives and 700 concubines in that sense, so they wouldn't been sex slaves. These will be in women who would've considered to be a high honor in most cases to be part of his harem would've been treated royally in different ways.

David did send you committed adultery with Bathsheba and he did repent as to having a number of wives. He was allowed to mature warned about having too many wives he might've said that he did but he did have hundreds of wives and sex slaves is not the case.

Solomon have hundreds of wives and concubines worshiped idols and came under divine judgment. David committed adultery with what he wasn't married to and repented God forgave him, but there were consequences to his sin. All right, Clay hi Dr. Brown thankful for your work in the Lord. Question what is the strongest argument against post-millennialism strongest argument in favor of historic premillennialism on Postville but I sincerely want to learn, grow and be challenged okay so first explain the systems for those that may not be familiar post-millennialist believes that there will be a thousand year reign of Jesus over the earth, where were the whole earth will come to know the Lord through the gospel and and the millennial reign that the reign of Jesus over the years with with righteousness and justice for all the knowledge of the glory of the Lord filling the earth as the waters cover the seas, but that will happen before Jesus returns.

And then we enter into eternity. The premillennial view says that Jesus will return and establish his kingdom on the earth where he will rule and reign for a thousand years. The strongest arguments against post-millennialism or that throughout Scripture over and over and over and over.

The end of the age is one of parallel extremes that you have the righteous and the wicked, the wheat and the tares in Matthew 13. Right up until the Lord's return. You have the harvest is the end of the age, right up to the Lord's return and in the harvest that that the giant net. It catches good fish and bad that the book of Revelation. If you read that is speaking of future times. It has time of great judgment and darkness along with God moving you to the end of Revelation. The sequence is clear, the Lord's return. Chapter 19 the millennial kingdom thousand years mentioned six times in chapter 20, and then the eternal age. Chapter 21, 22 of verse after verse in the Bible of speaks about evil times in the last days, which is from the death of Jesus to the end of this age and also great outpouring in the last days for the death and resurrection of Jesus to the end of the age so to me it's overwhelmingly clear.

The post-millennial position cannot be true. For these reasons as to why the Primo position is true. Well Peter says in acts three. Jesus must remain in heaven until the time spoken by the prophets for the restoration of all things toward restoration commonly used with the return of the land is similar Jesus is nothing 1912 tribes of Israel is governed by the 12 apostles. During this time the whole thing so everything the prophet spoke has to happen sense… I really had half height UV light to light a fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown five family members. We we still do have seats, but seating is limited its may 2023 and you know it's it's an uncanny thing that when you just walk the streets of some of these cities were biblical events unfold in and see that the ancient ancient buildings. I was talking to someone who'd been in England recently arrested old Oxford University that we have schools in America that are true hundred years older, or harbors of over 300 years old. Wow, that's incredible. Oxford was founded in 1099 Oxford is over a thousand years old are your own almost a thousand years old.

Remarkably, but then you go to sites in Israel and some of these are 2000 years old and some are 3000 years old is just something about it so I love to join you there in Israel go to the website my website asked Dr. Brown, the Lord asked K GR you'll see it right on the homepage get your reservation in.

Can't wait to be with you there to go back to a question that was asked about premillennial views and why I hold to them so strongly. Romans 11 clearly says that Israel will be saved will be a future turning of Israel. The Jewish people to the Lord.

This would be on the heels of of the fullness of the Gentiles coming in Romans 1125 and 26 and and clearly in context.

There is talking about the Jewish people turning to the Lord at the end of the age you go back to the Hebrew Bible and you see these many prophecies about it and they do refer to this millennial kingdom but but it's always after the coming of the Lord after his return.

When you look at passages like Zechariah 12 and 14 which speak of all the nations coming up against Jerusalem and more will that's that's obviously a final battle right that's gonna happen. Coming up against Jerusalem and the Messiah coming in the Jewish people looking to him and his kingdom being established in Jerusalem and the nations, the survivors of the nations that attaches them coming there to worship the Lord of hosts that's that's the millennial kingdom that's after the Messiah, so I take the promises literally in the New Testament reinforces them literally and throughout the Bible. I me through many Old Testament text. The New Testament text because we get to the end. The more intense the times, good and bad outpouring of spirit great harvest also great apostasy falling away wickedness.

These things can happen, side-by-side, right until the end. All right let us go to autistic seminarian.

What other Old Testament scholars do recommend the works of on the topic of the Pentateuch and its ancient near Eastern context, any good academic commentary that you get on on the, the, the Old Testament is going to give you ancient near Eastern background. Some more than others. There is the IVP Bible background commentary. Edited by John Walton and others of that goes along with the IVP Bible background commentary to the New Testament of the Herculean work of one person her friend Craig Keener so I use that often IVP Bible background commentary simply because a lot of great information is compiled there by specialists ancient recent specialist New Testament Greco-Roman specialist so depending on which value so that's a quick reference guide on Zondervan, has one with more pictures for old and new Testaments argument also has the cultural studies, Bible so that the cultural background Bible with John Walton, Craig Keener editing that for Old Testament and New Testament. Otherwise John Walton is probably the evangelicals publish most in this John Oswalt another top Old Testament scholar has some excellent work on the Bible is just one. One book, among other books of myths or is it something that stands out John Oswalt going back a little bit further. Kenneth kitchen the great Egyptologist has some great books on this Asian oriented Old Testament on the reliability of the Old Testament of the works like that and then there are there great compilations, beginning with the famous work by, edited by JB Prichard Princeton University decades back to ancient near Eastern texts and pictures relating to the Old Testament two-volume cement many other volumes updating that since Scripture in context being the most recent so there are there a lot of resources out there. Some will break it down for you. Some you gotta do the digging through them. Dana was the most effective way we can help the people were close with become fixated on predicting end time prophecy from current headlines were become captured by Christian nationalist vision regarding the second question, try to get them to read my book the political seduction of the church. How millions of American Christians have confused politics with the gospel. See if you can get them to read it. It'll be eye opening. It could change their perspective dramatically. My friend theologian Masumi theologian Dan Juster just finished the book, posted a review on Amazon. A glowing review and wrote to me privately set II can't think of a more important book to read right now than that.

So I wrote with urgency strongly encourage you to see if you can get that into their hands.

If not, at least get them to look at articles are written about Christian nationalism and the difference between a healthy patriotism and merging American identity was Christian identity if they become fixated on predicting the end times. So the my article when Gorbachev was the antichrist. When Gorbachev was the antichrist just so they can see how many silly predictions have been made and all these different candidates that have been the antichrist or all the different people that that set times talk to about 88 reasons why Jesus is coming in 88, which then the second edition came at 89 reasons was coming in a not yet even the third edition and reasons why was coming 90 prazosin that or the failed prophecies of Harold camping in 1993 was going to be the other approach that's come through this and then above all the biggest thing is helping to fixate on Jesus open to really get close to the Lord just get excited at the word for being the word and share their faith with others. If will do that or wean them from some of these other things of Joshua. All this is this is a new one. Are we sinning against God to know. Okay, I misread it. Start a resume against God to drive above the speed limit. I thought it's a drive at the speed limit, even if it's one small problem speed limit that's illegal. The Bible says we are supposed to obey laws and society as followers of Christ so they don't go against the word or am I thinking too legalistic with first one encourage you to honor the Lord and to do what you feel is right in his sight. Okay so I want to quench that because that is precious and that that is beautiful and I don't want to quench that but you have to ask, how is the law interpreted right in other words, we have the law on the books what is expected in many cases, if you drive the speed limit, you are more prone to get in an accident because of people not expecting you to be doing that and now I was he driving superfast is the most dangerous but okay. Statistically, I can tell you if you drive the speed limit from her pocket accident because people are not expected but often on the road.

Peter people buzzing body because everyone is expected over the speed limits or forget my stats is not that what you want to do is talk to place and asked them what is expected.

Is there a grace period or a grace limit for me if if I see something that says 30 miles an hour so you're on the smaller roads that I assume I can go up to 35. Without penalty, and I could drive right by policeman and he wouldn't bat an eyelash. If I'm on a main road with higher speed limit. If it's a 65.

I assume I can go up to 75 without penalty and that that's what's understood on the ground if it's different than, although differently in other words, what is a violation that would cause me to get a ticket.

That's what I am sensitive to and I understand the guidelines are there is guidelines so they don't want. If it's the 16th that obviously fungal or alien getting a ticket like a ticket going 69. If that's the case, and that southern forcing it. Then I got a little morsel, but I personally would not think speed limit alone simply because of the way that is in force and many a time, as I'm driving and there's a car going the speed limit slows up everybody behind this mission 1 Lane Rd. and you and the people try to pass and can be dangerous in that regard, but you work it out between you and the Lord and you can tell the police officer people general. Dr. Brown said a lot is on the radio show. I'm nobody to them.

All right, that's not better cut it all right.

Blaine, with all that's going on in our world how you think preachers can help truly be calling out false statements made by politicians should be adjusted to the issues that people were dealing with.

When the Bible was being written. They absolutely need to apply the Bible to situations today there there are situations that we must interpret from then to now, knowing God commanded Israel to build a power pack around the rooftop so that people could not fall off as easily as her flat roof tops in many countries in which we live, or states in which we live. The roof tops are angular nested to keep snow from crushing them and things like that other parts the world is different if you build a power pet around the slope roof is not as amazing to it. So everything must be interpreted and applied to our day. Of course, so the question is if this politician is hurting your church or hurting the society and what they're saying should be called out then call it out for politician to say things and it's causing division in your church and ask God for wisdom is to how to address it.

If the politician is doing things that are detrimental to the society you want to call on your church to do what's right and to do the opposite of that then asked for wisdom, so preachers are not to be politicians or to be primarily politically focused. But because politics intersects with culture and culture intersects with morality and all of us are living in this world we should be practical and holistic. I'm perfectly fine, go to church services and hear messages but never one say a word about politics or executing text in the practice of politics is to save the life of the people in the politics of practical wisdom, some practical application for use of the 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 asked because I see partly charismatic preachers behave in ways that don't seem very fruitful networking signs and wonders. Thanks for all you do. If it's genuine miracles that are being performed to honor the Lord Jesus then those are from the Holy Spirit by the Holy Spirit but doesn't mean that the person being used by God is necessarily mature right relationship with God. They might, they might have a gift operating them like Samson did, and Samson ended up destroying his life by the gift still operated in him unless his hair was cut through the spirit has to do with our growth in God has to do with our maturity in God has to do with our self-discipline has to do us becoming more like Jesus, love, joy, peace, the fruit that the Spirit produces in us self control those things so dollars per produces that fruit in us brother would assist self-control is a mean of the Holy Spirit upon someone that they might not a quake under the power of God that makes perfect sense that they might self-control is his moral discipline, self-control is watching your eyes and watch your mouth control your appetite.

Things like that. So when you're judging someone's fitness for ministry. We don't look to see if they are supernaturally anointed by God, have the gift of prophecy the gift of working of miracles or something like that that somebody judged by you, judged by their soundness in the word. Their soundness and character. Their soundness and service maturity that's will be judged by all right, so having some type of of powerful anointing of guy that can that can hurt someone with an aperture because they'll have a lot of open doors and people wall while amazed dislikes on the incredible voice or summons incredible speaker people might be pulled into that when you're not ready or mature.

Let's see, Cedric. The Scriptures speak of 1/3 Jewish temple as best as understand. Yes, first in this age, it seems that there will be a Temple rebuilt before the Messiah returns based on the, the fullness of what is written in Matthew 24. Based on what would seem to be the meaning of second Thessalonians 2 based on other scriptures. It seems to be the case and then a millennial temple.

It could be that the Temple in Jerusalem, glorify could be yet something more supernatural than that. It seems that will be there based on passages like Ezekiel 43, 48, and Zechariah 14 speak of sacrifices I'm not dogmatic on it but it seems to be the case of Isaiah 2 verses one through four were all the nations of the earth will come streaming to the house of the Lord in Jerusalem, the temple of the Lord that's that's the millennial temple so it's it seems based on Scripture.

That's the case, and of Revelation 11 is speaking of a future temple reply to that as well.

David with me to bring revival in our own lives. Revival starts with us. Thank you for answering love what you do so. Number one, we have to realize that God wants to pour the spirit on us more than we desired that God wants us to be passionate for him more than we want to be passionate for him. So we are appealing to God to do something which is important to him. There is the old anecdote with Gypsy Smith evangelist Gypsy Smith when he was asked how to pray for revival.

How does he pray for revival.

He said I take out a piece of chalk I draw a circle on the ground.

I stayed inside a circle is the Lord, revive everything in the circle sometimes is just getting before God saying I need a fresh touch of grown coal of complacent fours are burning in me like it once did you just go before him start afresh far in my life.

What else can you do Bobby C. Setting aside time to really be with the Lord set aside time to really be in his in his presence of that's that's that's key you're telling God I'm really really serious about this shutting down other things. Maybe your favorite show or sports event or habit is hobby or something new set of the psychos have to be with Gabor crying out that's key when you get so moved and stirred that that you fast that you need to, to separate yourself to fast that something else then reading things in the in the Bible that stir your heart and ignite something of my book revival or we die is meant to ignite something the hearts of people so listening to messages that stir you reading past accounts of revival.

All these different things can really help spark something afresh within us and then we don't let go until the breakthrough comes.

Jacob, a nurse, maybe recent posts are in disagreement with Doug Wilson would love to hear your debate monthly autonomy, Christian nationalism, etc. actually haven't seen his post. To be honest I have no idea what you're talking about. If you say one thing I seem to be saying another that just so happens the only thing I was sent by him, which is a bummer. My staff members asked me to look at it as always it was great. I item minor difference on point, but overall I thought when you say was great.

So if we differ on these things, which could well be. I'm totally unaware we had a friendly debate about the gifts of the spirit for today that was hosted by Justin Brierley and unbelievable. I think that was a real good interaction real eye-opening and of course cordial and spirit, but debating Christian nationalism of the Army.

Sure glad to do it if we have different views on it.

But now I'm I'm completely unaware. Haven't tweeted anything with regard to what he said having seen his comments, videos, articles 0 with all respect to Doug Wilson have no clue what he saying on any of these things haven't seen any of it so no none none relate to that at all. I just been writing when I'm writing by rhinology does remedy or eschatological beliefs, eschatology, lease, and if I may ask another what is your position on full progressive so as someone pointed out that Chad thank you. You can read the book I co-authored with Prof. Craig Keener not afraid of the answer. Christ why we don't believe in a pre-tribulation rapture. So we are historic premillennialists.

We believe that Jesus will return to this earth. When is returning we are caught up to meet him in the air and to escort him back here by glorified bodies. Many establishes his kingdom on the earth. I'm not a dispensation must I'm historic premillennialists a full printer is him is absolutely unbearable. Absolutely un-biblical and some would even say heretical. Even the full prioress would in fact preach that salvation is only through Jesus and that he died for sins and rose from the dead and would be Trinitarian, etc. the fact that it denies the future resurrection that we are really spiritually resurrected and that's it. The fact that it says that were in the new heavens and the new earth. The fact that it says that Jesus is not returning physically that is ready return. Those are dangerous un-biblical doctrines and there certainly heretical statements in and out. Can you be a believer and hold the full prioress of that, so that's a fair debate to have because you're denying the second coming and denying future resurrection is a fundamental doctrines of the faith so seriously in error seriously wrong amid full prioress in its full-blown way serious error seriously wrong. It's just see here will quickly Jeffrey Miriam and Aaron have any justification for speaking against Moses marriage to the Cushite woman. What a God punished Mary Malone while the punisher should a good reason for speaking is that there's no justification in speaking against it. That's one thing, there is nothing stopping someone from joining the people of Israel and worshiping the God of Israel, and why Miriam was singled out could have just been what you said how she said it, it's all speculation.

It's all speculation as to why she would be singled out my trap whether any early Jewish philosophers are thinkers that we should read to gain better insight into the Old Testament Jewish concept mindsets just seems like most my understanding comes from a Western monster try to grasp Old Testament makes us open to projecting. I would suggest you you can look at the ancient Jewish philosopher Philo, but if you look at Maimonides he's in the 12th-century are really looking at every different system right that that it is his later Greek philosophy and encounter brought into Jewish thinking. If you want something that's more back in the time of Jesus and Philo of Alexandria would be worth reading and looking at and some books that the chair some of his thought compared to the New Testament thought. And any good commentaries that you read now on the New Testament, though, will give you a lot of background into the culture of the day SGA who is the woman Revelation 12 what will this is massively debated, massively debated this moment, a Catholic tradition often sees it is Mary because of the woman who gives birth to the son, but the larger account that the the images with 12 involved with suggested speaks of the people of Israel. Many scholars believe that speaking the people of Israel, either in history through the Messiah comes in and every persecution and attack comes, or the Messiah coming into the world through the people of Israel and now the Jewish remnant that continues being persecuted. I think that's the best way to read but that there is a lot of debate about it all right automatic time I got 30 seconds left about a tie. I got to as many questions as I could and maybe I'll get a few others in some random settings but also the will of the late Mrs. lives over literacy has a fabulous rumor. Please pray for God's grace to be on the ministry of holiness is half-life is the great died.
