This is Hans Schile from the Finishing Well Podcast.

On Finishing Well, we help you make godly choices about Medicare, long-term care, and your money. Your chosen Truth Network Podcast is starting in just seconds. Enjoy it, share it, but most of all, thank you for listening and choosing the Truth Podcast Network. This is the Truth Network. Welcome to the Christian Car Guy radio show.

I say this calls for action, and now! Satisfaction today on the Christian Car Guy show. You can't get it, but you can have it. What?

I'll say that one more time. Satisfaction. You can't get it, but you can have it. So certainly Mick Jagger could not have said it better, right? We all long for it.

We strive for it, but how do you get it? So it's very interesting to me, I find this fascinating, is you just study the phrase. I can't get no. Now that doesn't sound like all that good English, does it, Bob? Sounds like something I would say.

Sounds like mine. As I've really pondered this, I've had a chance to ponder it, it's actually a great answer to the question. But the question has everything to do with burning, okay? So if you're trying to get satisfaction, you're burning, right? And that's why today's show is brought to you by the letter Shin. So if you know the Hebrew letter Shin like always, like our show is brought to you like by Sesame Street, you know, letters, well, today's show is brought to you by the letter Shin, because it looks like fire and is oxidizing that's going on and actually drives your car. So here you go in your engine, right? Your engine is burning. And, you know, since we're talking about burning inside of an engine, what a great time to play Name That Noise.

It's time to play Define That Defect. Resolve that roar. Trace that tick.

Highlight that hubbub. Name that noise. Chronicle that clatter. Oh, it's so much fun to play Name That Noise. We're going to play a noise and give you a chance to call in and win today. So if you think you can identify what this noise actually is, you call us at 866-348-7884, 866-34-TRUTH, and if you can name this noise, you'll be able to win. So here's the noise so you can begin to process. What is this noise?

Go ahead, Sean. All right, so as often I have to clarify that that is an automotive noise because sometimes people call in with interesting answers, but this is I promise you it's from a car and it has everything to do with the topic of today's show. So if you can name that noise, Sean, tell them what they'll win. All right, Robbie, if you are able to name that noise, like you said, they are going to win a Truth Network t-shirt. So that sounds like a lot of fun, doesn't it, Robbie? Oh, I'm going to tell you not only a Truth Network t-shirt, but specifically the Christian car guy t-shirt that has on the back the Jesus labor love.

So you get to style and profile as the Christian car guy, and I see the lines are lighting up already. My people that want to play name that noise. Always fun. Always fun.

If you think you can identify that noise, you call us 866-34-87884. So I can't get no satisfaction, but you can have it. So if you're looking for that, you know, Bob, I'm thinking why not ask King David, right, since he claims to know, you know, that he will have it. So if you look in the 17th Psalm, you know, he says something very interesting here. He says he's surrounded by, as King David often is, shenanigans.

There's people that are gnashing their teeth at him and tell him how horrible he is, and all this other stuff, and essentially evil people. And so not unlike several other Psalms, all of a sudden King David in verse 13 says, Arise, O Lord, disappoint him and cast him down. Deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword. What?

You confused me with that one this morning when you told me at first. So if you listen carefully, you'll note that, and he says that, and I could, you know, looking at the Hebrew and studying it thoroughly, what he is saying is the wicked are his sword, right? And so I'm going to just bet you in your life, if you think about it, there has been a time where wickedness was the sword of the Lord to separate you surgically from something that was totally dissatisfying you. So we're getting down to where David's going to say he's going to get satisfied, and we're going to take on Mick Jagger here in a minute. But before we get there, I think this is absolutely fascinating.

Part of the story is that if you think about it, in order for Jesus to make it to the cross, some wickedness had to look like it was winning, right? Absolutely. And I bet you have a story in your life where that will work, but first we're going to play Name That Noise because we got Laura who wants to play. Laura, you're on the Christian Car Guys show. Good morning, Laura.

Where are you at? Laura, are you with us? Hopefully we'll turn on the... There you are. There you are. We got you. I'm sorry.

I was in the other room. I apologize. Good morning. Good morning. I always think it's like a car in a garage was my first thought, but then it also sounds like driving in the rain. I like that. Driving in the rain. You know, I wasn't there when they recorded this noise, and they could very easily have been driving in the rain. Laura, where are you calling from today?

From Raleigh. Oh, wonderful. Wonderful.

So that is a car, and the engine is running, so it could be driving in the rain. So we're going to send you out a t-shirt. However, I will say for those who want to call in and win, and we have plenty of t-shirts to give away, that there's another thing involved with that particular noise that I would want to highlight, but I'd love that.

And let Melissa have you on the line. Okay. Thank you so much. Oh, I'm just thrilled to death that you called in. Yeah. No, no, it's okay. You're a winner.

That's the reason they're clapping. But anyway, has there ever been a point in your life where it seemed like something really evil was happening to you, and everything was going bad, but then all of a sudden you realize it was the sword of the Lord God was delivering you from something that would have really hurt you? Oh, wow. Hello? Yeah. Do you have a story like that? Oh, I thought this was the...

Okay. Yeah. Like Romans 8, 28, several times in my life, and I thought... Yeah, I went through some hard times, but I'm on solid ground now, but definitely. But then looking back on it, there was a lot of different stuff. But looking back, it was like it all was meant for good. And I'm still here loving the Lord. Yeah. Just like the Joseph story, right?

His brothers threw him in the pit, and that looked really, really bad. But it turned out it was the sword of the Lord, because what they meant for evil, God meant for good. So very cool. That's been my verse for a long, long time. Isn't that wonderful? Coincidentally, right? Yes. Yes. Well, wonderful. And lean not, because I don't understand, in all thy ways, acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. So it's... Yeah.

Yeah, he's got a... Thank you so much. Oh, thank you, Laura. God bless. I appreciate your courage to call in today and play.

Oh, well, thank you. I enjoyed it. I appreciate it. I appreciate what you do. I really do. Okay. I keep Truth Radio on 24-7. Oh, well, that...

If I'm not here, the cat listens to it. That's good to hear. Thank you, Laura. God bless. All right. Thank you. Bye-bye.

Bye now. So, Sean, can you play that noise one more time so people can hear maybe what I'm talking about? So... Now, that's an engine running. But there's a noise in there that I'm wondering if you can identify. All right.

Besides the engine running, at 866-348-788486634 Truth, if you think you know what I'm getting at, I would love for you to do that. But, Bob? That's a poser. I'm not 100%. I didn't find out what it was before the show because I wanted to play along with everybody else, and I'm not 100% sure.

I've got a guess, but I'm gonna keep it under my hat for a moment. It's kind of an interesting one because I've heard it a lot, and the noise that I'm going after is I've heard a lot more in a domestic car than I have heard in a foreign car. And as you might hear in that soundbite, that that is actually a foreign car engine that's happening with, so the sound's a little bit more higher pitched than would be on a domestic car. But when we get to all this, we're gonna see, wow, how do we get satisfaction and might have to do with the sword of the Lord? Well, we got all that stuff. We got all sorts of lines lit up, so we're very anxious to take your calls and name that noise. So much more on Christian Car Guy Show coming up.

Stay tuned. Satisfaction today on the Christian Car Guy Show. You can't get it, but you can have it. We'll get into that a little bit more. As I mentioned, today's show is brought to you by the letter Shin, and we have been playing Name That Noise, which has a little bit to do with this idea that what David was getting at in the 17th Psalm, which is absolutely a wonderful place if you're in search of satisfaction, because David here shares how we got there.

– You really confused me this morning when you first said that, you know, you can't get it, but you can have it. And I was sitting there scratching my head a little bit, but with a little further elaboration, I was able to pick up what you was putting down there. – Which we're gonna put that weapon down. You know, to some extent, it's interesting to me how David tracks us there from a standpoint of this sword of the Lord. So we've got Orlando is in high point.

He wants to play Name That Noise. So Orlando, you're on the Christian Car Guy Show. Good morning. – Good morning, Robby. How you doing? – I am doing wonderful. I'm gonna play that noise one more time so our listeners get a chance to see what you are trying to identify.

Go ahead. – It sounds to me—I'm not sure what it is, but it sounds to me like the rotor is being eaten up by the brake pads, the brake pads gave out, and the rotor is being eaten up, being destroyed. And since you're using the letter sheen, that means destruction also. That's what I thought.

I don't know. – I love that. I love that. And once again, Orlando, because I wasn't there when they recorded as possible, it is possible that the brakes were scrubbing. And like you say, tearing up the rotors, that's horrible. And that's a good noise.

Like, when you hear something and you think it might be—if you're putting your foot on the brake and you're hearing that noise, you got problems. – You better talk. – Yeah, it's time to get somebody to look at that thing. So we're gonna give you, send you up, because if anybody needs a Christian Car Guy t-shirt, it's Orlando.

I'm just saying, because, you know. – I will wear it every day. – So by all means, make sure to tell.

I'm gonna have them put you back on hold so you can tell in a minute what size that you want them to send you out. But Orlando, have you had that situation where you felt the sword of the Lord was separating you from something that was dissatisfying? – Yeah. – Who hasn't? – Yeah, yeah. It's sharp, isn't it? – Yeah, when you read his word, I mean, it really gets into your heart and you say, I'm not doing right. I better get back into the right path. – That thing is a pruning shear, man.

It's like clip, clip, and away you go. So thank you, Orlando. I appreciate you playing today and for—I'm excited to know that you're out there wearing a Christian Car Guy t-shirt. God bless you. – God bless you guys.

– Thank you, Orlando. All right, we got Sarah in North Orchard, Washington. I think this may be actually Sarah Linda. So Sarah Linda, you're on a Christian— – Yeah, that's Sarah Linda. That's me, all right.

Well, you know, I'm just so excited. Sue Anna woke me up, my daughter, and I told her, well, wake me up, and then we were a little late. But when she told me the question, but when she told me the word chin, and that's like fire, you know, and I wanted to call you because I wanted to ask you about, you know, the high octane, because, you know, when did they start the, you know, octane is the oxygen, you know?

– Oh, that's a great question, Sarah Linda, just absolutely right on topic, by the way. – Well, I was so excited when she told me, and she said, well, what she said is, she said, it sounds like something to do with the belt, but she was listening, you know, and then she— – I like the octane question, because that's the closest anybody has come to what that noise might be. And certainly, using the wrong octane will lead to this noise that I'm describing, so that's a great question, and I would love to spend a minute on that, because I think all of us could learn a little something. I'll never forget when I learned about this, because— – When did they first change the octane to just, I mean, when did they— – When they started to raise the compression in gasoline engines, so clear back in the 40s, when they figured out they could get more horsepower by raising the compression, which means how much more pressure was in the engine, they needed to raise the octane in the gas, because what octane actually lowers the flash point of the gas, in other words, gasoline without any octane in it will ignite just when it begins to be compressed, and if it ignites before the cylinder gets to top dead center, before the piston does, then you get what they call pre-ignition, and you hear this ping-ping-ping, which doesn't happen to be today's noise, but it will lead to the noise that we have in today, ruin your engine, so when they started to make higher compression engines in the 50s and 60s, then octane became the thing.

Now today's engines, because we have computers to drive them, they can actually adjust when the spark fires, when they detect that there isn't enough octane in the fuel, that's a really interesting thing, but it costs you gas mileage when it starts to do that, so when you're buying gasoline, it's not a bad idea to try some different octane levels to see where you spend, where you get the best gas mileage and where your engine runs the best, because it could be that you're buying too low octane for your car, and it's costing you gas mileage, which is more expensive than paying extra for the octane. You see what I'm saying? It's a little complicated, but. You know, I'm in my old 1927 Ford, you know, I, well, I've been, I just have had my CPAP, you know, and, and I've been running on, well, I guess you say I was, I was, I had the wrong octane in my tank and I've been running on that for, I mean, most of my life, but now they're working on it. I've got really, well, I just last, I mean, I've had some real problems about it and, and now I've gotten this CPAP, I mean, I'm doing it right now and then I'm going along too quick.

So I mean, oh, it's yeah, well, absolutely. In order to have fire, it takes air, right? And your whole body is a little bitty flame going on.

So you got to have that air from the CPAP machine. I love that. That's absolutely beautiful. So when we come back, we're going to explore more on this whole idea of satisfaction.

Thank you for sharing Linda. We're sending you out a t-shirt anyway, cause you're so close. So we're going to put you on hold, get your size and you call in and tell us what you think that noise is. 866-348-7884. 866-34-TRUTH. You're listening to the Truth Network and truthnetwork.com. Satisfaction today on the Christian Car Guys show.

You can't get it, but you can have it. And, uh, we've got all sorts of folks playing name that noise today, which we're going to get to in just a minute, but I need to tell you that coming up at one o'clock, uh, Amy Cabo has to show the cure and she's going to be doing a show on divorce with an attorney. Wow. It's a live show. You can call in at one o'clock today on the Truth Network that definitely be, which, you know, wow.

I don't know. There's a lot of satisfaction in divorce one where they could be, you know, wow. So that's going to be coming on at one o'clock, but getting back to what King David shares in the 17th Psalm.

And I think it's absolutely amazing. Um, when you get to the last verse and this may help you out with Nick, if you've been wondering all these years and you happen to be listening today, checker that is. Anyway, 15th verse of the 17th Psalm, it says, as for me here, King David says, I will behold thy face in righteousness and I shall be satisfied when I awake with thy likeness. And, and that word satisfied as we described does have a shin in it that that fire of satisfaction. But I want you to think about something with me for a minute that when you were born, when you were a little bitty baby and your parents were dying to see you and one of the first things you experienced was a face that absolutely was delighted that you were on the scene. Now, not for everybody, and I understand everybody's parents weren't what God had designed them to be.

However, for a lot of us, our parents were dying for us to show up. They've been waiting nine months. They were more than delighted. And we sensed this absolute love and acceptance because at this point in time you have done absolutely nothing. You've done nothing. You haven't gotten in any trouble yet. In other words, you just have total love and acceptance for who you are, Bob.

And, uh, yeah, like say you haven't done the knuckleheaded things that causes them displeasure after a while. And, uh, I just I've got a new granddaughter. And, uh, you know, it's just sheer delight, you know, to see her every time. She hadn't hurt my feelings.

She hadn't done. You're looking at her and she sensed that love and acceptance. And the beauty of that is when you think about it is you're looking at her.

It isn't something she can get. She can't strive to make you want to look at her. She you just look at her because you love her. And oh, by the way, that's how and can't take my eyes off of her.

You know, it's right whether she's awake or asleep or or whatever. You know, you just mesmerized by this little. So when you were when you were born, Jesus was dying to look at you. But unfortunately, we were born into sin, right? And so this sword that God is talking about, Lord, the evil that came in and killed him so that we could be bathed in his blood so that he could, in fact, love us. And for those of us who have ever even begun to get a glimpse of his face, maybe you got it through reading the word or maybe you got it through somebody that you knew is love and acceptance, whatever that looked like for you, you got begin to get a glimpse of it. And what David knew there is is something that God showed me years ago that, oh, my goodness, when you think you're going to see his face, there will be a fire that lights in you that you have no ideas there that will just just burn like crazy. I'm going to see his face. And when we get to see it, Bob, there's going to be a satisfaction unlike anything we've ever experienced.

Well, before the show, we kind of were talking about some I'm guilty of it. I've kind of suppressed that desire to see Jesus's face because I thought I had a picture of Jesus in my house. And I would look at that. Oh, well, there he is.

I know what he looks like. And so it kind of suppressed that desire to see the face of Jesus. And you were pretty quick to enlighten me that there's a commandment along those lines.

You should. But anyway, yeah, yeah. I mean, it is it is really something that I hope all of us get a chance to spend what David is talking about right here. And in order to do that, unfortunately, sometimes God's going to have to surgically remove us from something that was totally dissatisfying.

Like, he surgically removed me through a lot of internal theft and things from the car business or otherwise. I wouldn't be here today on a Christian Car Guy show. I know that. And oh, my goodness, the satisfaction I've had of all these years with being with you, my audience, and with Bob and Jerry and think about all that.

It's a. It's you've had me process and stuff all morning long. You know, I've been surgically removed from a lot of things.

My first building at the place that was removed. You know, I was removed from a marriage. I was, you know, there's just several things that. And I got to say, my son and you've just that gets in my head and I'm not sure where I am on all this, you know, because it's a little confusing.

It's a little heart wrenching, but it sure has got the wheels turning in my brain right now. That's been turned in mine all week, I can assure you. Well, I got Anita wants to play.

She's in Silverdale, Washington. Anita, you're on the Christian Car Guys show. Good morning.

Good morning. I'm so glad you called in. Oh, thank you.

That's kind of an interesting contest. Do you want to hear the noise again? Sure. Okay.

There you go. So, Anita, can you name that noise? Well, I'm not sure, but is there maybe a spark plug that's misfiring or it's sounds like it's got crackling in there in the engine. You're exactly right. There's crackling in the engine.

And of course, there may be a spark plug misfiring. So I'm not going to take that away from you. Certainly a winner.

We're going to send you a T-shirt. There's something else that I'm actually going for in there, Anita. But I love that you try and and and and. And she did hear the crackling. Yeah. And there's crackling. A hundred percent.

There's crackling. So beautiful. So I'm guessing that that maybe the Lord has done some pruning in your life, too, at some point in time.

Yes. I, too, have lost a son and many, many years ago. And when I see the Lord's face, that is going to light a fire like no other. And I know that I just feel that right behind him, I'll see my son again, too.

And so, yeah, there. And I've also lost through divorce. My husband left me also many years ago. They say that when you lose a child, that really takes a toll on the marriage.

And I don't blame the divorce on that. But it's been a hard role, but the Lord's been there and proven to me that he has been a husband and he is a husband. And he's with those of us who are in deep sorrow and and brings us through and gives us strength. That is so beautiful and really is, Anita. It kind of makes my day. And thank you for sharing that. Yeah, because, you know, it was interesting.

I interviewed a lady from Columbia a few weeks ago and she called herself, I forget her first name, but I know she went by whatever, let's say it was Anita. She went by Anita Christ because she said, Christ is my husband. And, you know, it struck me and she meant that. She had sensed that comfort, that love and acceptance. That sense of, I love you just because I love you. That, you know, he has to offer. And it's a beautiful thing.

It's going to be interesting to see, you know, what all God has in mind. But I know that what you shared today, Anita, is going to certainly, I think, encourage many people, don't you, Bob? Oh, it encouraged me. And if you've never lost a child, there's no words to describe, you know, the pain and anguish from that. But I hope you were able to push forward in a timely fashion because so many folks just completely shut down and looking for an answer. And I just decided there was no answer available at that time and chose to go forward the best I could and realized that God would give me my answer and that we would be back together. And it's already been seven and a half years. And so before I know it, he and I will be back together and doing our things. Yeah, it's so true. He is so close to the broken hearted.

And, yeah, there's, you never get over it, but you do learn to live with it through the strength of the Lord. Oh, yeah. Thank you, Anita, for listening to KCIS up there. I know that's a wonderful station. I'm so grateful that they carry my show. Oh, me too. Yeah, I love your show.

I have a great mechanic here in Silverdale, and he's a Christian. And I just, I gain some knowledge from your show, and then I go to him with my little bit of knowledge. Well, I hate we got to run, but thank you, Anita, so much. You're welcome. Thank you so much. God bless. We got Larry and Lawrence and Jonesy. Oh, yeah, they're all lined up. They want to name that noise. So we got so much more Christian Car Guys show on tap for you.

So stay tuned. Satisfaction today on the Christian Car Guys show. You can't have it. Excuse me. You can't get it. I had to say it backwards, Bob. You can't get it, but you know, I can't get no, right? You can't, Mick.

But you can have it. So I don't want to miss our list, or I don't want anybody to listen, miss the conversation I just had with Bob. So we were talking about it during the break, and he said, so are you saying that David said, because he does say it, he says, as for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness. He said, so was David saying he was righteous? And for me, that was, I don't think I could ever say that.

And Robbie was like, explaining a little here and a little there. But I would just never, I'm a sinner. I'm going to do something wrong before I get to the house. Maybe before I get out of the door here, you know, because I'm just, I don't consider myself a righteous person. I don't live righteously.

I don't, I do things wrong, but I try to do the most I can for God in spite of my wicked ways. And then Robbie just explained to me that I'm not righteous because of my actions, but I can be righteous through the blood of Christ. And it was just such a. And David knew that too, because he was a shenaniganser, just like me and you. What an epiphany, you know. Yeah.

So David knew Jesus was going to die on the cross. I'm always coming in here, hoping that somebody in the audience, somebody out there listening on the radio gets something from it. And, uh, but some days I get more out of it than anybody possibly, you know, anybody else possibly could. It just. Yeah.

You can't get righteous, but you can have righteousness. It's just the, you know, and that's the only way you get to see his face in that love and acceptance. Oh my goodness.

What a what a treasure it is. Unfortunately, sometimes we have to be removed from things that are dissatisfying. So we've got Larry is in Winston Salem. He thinks he can name that noise. Larry, you're on the Christian car guys show. What'd you think, Larry? You want to hear it again? Please. Okay.

We're going to play it one more time here. There you go. So what do you think that is? I think it's a diesel engine.

That actually is a great answer. Uh, although not exactly what I had in mind and nor is it a diesel engine, but that is the noise that diesel makes. And the RPMs are up a little bit on this noise.

It's not at idle. Would you say? Oh, it's not.

They revved it up in order to hear it. Okay. In other words, they want you to hear what it is that we're trying to describe, but I love your answer, Larry. And I get that completely.

We're going to give you a t-shirt by all means. We're going to call you a winner because that, that thing could be diesel in a little bit. We don't know. I had to ask, I had a guest and I was wrong. And, uh, one lady while ago, uh, pretty much described what I was talking about. I thought it was a spark knock, but, uh, you know, maybe the next caller will get the right answer. Thank you, Larry. I appreciate it so much. God bless. Thank you. All right. I've got, uh, Lorraine is in Durham, um, North Carolina.

Lorraine, good morning. What, what do you think that noise is? I, I remember having an old, um, some about 25 years ago and it did make that sound similar to that sound when I used the long octane in the, um, tank. Um, so I was thinking that it was, um, it was, was this a valve knocking?

A spark knock? Yeah. Again. Great answer.

Absolutely. And I love that you had a Datsun. Was it a 210, a 310?

What was it? It was a 210. Oh man. I love those Datsun.

Believe it or not, I worked for Datsun, um, like 1979 back then when it wasn't Datsun before it became Nissan. That is so cool. Once again, we're, you're a winner Lorraine, cause it just like a stark park knocking.

It might be doing that, but we're going to give you the t-shirt. So thank you for calling in today. God bless.

Thank you so much. All right. And last up we got Jonesy is in Greenville, South Carolina. Jonesy, you're on the Christian Car Guys show. Good morning.

Good morning. So I'm counting on you Jonesy. The pressure's on you. You got to get it. Oh goodness. Okay. Um, well, first of all, I want to say, this is the first time I've ever listened to y'all's show and I'm in love. It's like everything that y'all have said, the Lord has spoken for y'all to me.

So, um, that's wonderful. But I was going to say, my guess for the noise is we had a car and it was, um, kind of had the same thing. It was the throttle body wasn't opening in the right way.

Oh wow. Something, the throttle body and the oxygen sensor or the crank shaft sensor. And we replaced both those and it just, but it would have the same noise. Like it just, something with the oxygen just wasn't going through the right way and you could rev it up.

It had a lot of power. Well Jonesy, I, I'm going to tell you that that's a great answer. I mean, that just is because here, here's what's actually going on. And since there's nobody else calling, I don't want to spoil anybody's magic, but anyway, what's actually going on is we in the car business would call that the death knock. Like when an engine, right.

Right. So a death knock. So you have spark knock and a spark knock and a death knock are very, very similar in that they both are the sounds of the rod clanking up against the piston. Uh, because what's happened in the case of a spark knock, which is what is happening with your throttle body or when you don't have enough octane and the fuel is the lady was the Datsun was talking about is that the piston is trying to get up to the top and the spark plug goes off before it's supposed to. And so the pressure of the fuel expanding causes the piston to push down on the rod and you get this knock. Well, when, uh, when, when you, when your engine develops a death knock, what's happened due to loyal pressure or just wear and tear the bearing surfaces between the rod and the crankshaft wear to the point that there's too much clearance there. And so every time the engine comes up, it knocks like that on its way to breaking the crankshaft, which is not funny by anybody's imagination, but the whole point. Yeah. So, and, and so sometimes the Lord is surgically removing this engine from our car because it's not getting any satisfaction.

Okay. I mean, it just, you know, you've, you've gone as far as you're going to go perhaps with this car or perhaps with this engine. And I can tell you time and time again, where people, they threw a rod and then, you know, six months later with their new car, they got in an accident. This car had an airbag that saved their life. Right.

I mean, it's, it's, it's, we don't know what God's up to when things happen that just really like, man, what the heck? Right. Right. Absolutely.

But again, I know it's a complicated thing, but I thought it was a perfect example of what David is getting at here is, you know, we're, we can't know all the things that we've become attached to that are drawing our attention away from the phase that would actually give us satisfaction. And so I am so grateful for your call. And of course, you're a winner and we're going to send you out a t-shirt too. So thank you for calling and thank you for listening today. God bless. Thank you. Y'all have a good day. You too. So now I want you to think about, okay, with me that what we call the Aaronic blessing. Okay.

Because you've been thinking about this ever since you were born and you got that love and acceptance from you parents when you were a child. And now you're going to hear this, right? Where it says, may the Lord bless you and keep you. May he make his face shine upon you, right? May he lift up his countenance. That's his face, by the way, upon you and give you Shalom. Well, that Shalom starts with a shin because it's a burning. All right. And like Moses, he got lit up for a long time because he just got one glimpse, right? We got it coming for those of us that can receive his righteousness.

We can't get it, but we can have it, right? Amen. Thank you.

Clarity is everything brother. Thank you for making such a difference in my life today. Oh, God did it all. Believe me. He showed it to me first. Thank you for listening to Christian Car Guy.
