Welcome to the Christian Car Guy radio show. His truth is marching on. His truth is marching on. Glory, glory, hallelujah. Glory, glory, hallelujah. His truth is marching on. Glory, glory, hallelujah. Freedom has everything to do with dirt today on the Christian Car Guys show.
Yes, freedom has everything to do with dirt. And that was the United States of America's Army Field Band. And that was recorded in 2017. And I would point out it has over 17,548,000 views on YouTube, and that's all very recently if you think about it.
So let that sink in a minute, okay? That was the United States Army's Field Band. And did you hear the pure, I mean, absolutely pure Christian message and a double bill, a double amen, a glorious double amen at the end of that particular piece? I mean, you just can't, I mean, I really am so encouraged really to hear that. Go ahead. You're on the other mic. I said it's a beautiful song.
It came from the abolitionists during the Civil War. Yeah. And so as I was obviously thinking about that in so many different ways, let me tell you why. So my father loved that song. I mean, he loved that song. And if you grew up in the Dilmore household on the 4th of July weekend, we had a big, what was called a Magnavox stereo hi-fi that was as big as TVs were back then.
It was a great big console thing. And it had a six record changer changer on it that would hold six albums. And he would load up that song with about six other John Philip Sousa grades.
And we would hear it all over the house starting at about seven o'clock in the morning. So when I listen to that this morning, I mean, what it means to be in our generation, right? We're in our generation. And clearly, if there's 17,500,000 views, the love of Christ in America is still evident. I mean, don't get me wrong, we got a long way to go, but oh my goodness, is that not clear? I mean, could it not be a more Christian message that then comes at the end of that song? It's a beautiful song. It's a shame how they keep trying to change our Christian founding and revise what the truth was. It's amazing. The truth keeps marching on and it will always.
It just does. And so today's show, as always, is going to be brought to you by the Hebrew letter, Shen. I like that letter because it begins the word lily and it also begins the word soil, right? Which that word lily, if you translate it, you could translate it rejoice as much as you could translate it lily.
In other words, when you look at the thing, it's a trumpet. I mean, and it was kind of designed by God that way to glory. And so as, right, in the beauty of the lilies, Christ was born across to see. Well, that passage, I'm just guessing, came from the second chapter of the Song of Solomon, where lilies were mentioned actually three times. And lilies quite clearly of the valleys, right? The richest soil.
I don't know if you've ever thought about this. Obviously, John Bunyan did and I've spent a lot of time thinking about it. But the richest soil is in the valleys. And the reason it is, is it's broken up topsoil that came off the hills and it came off the mountains. And so, you know, as we think about that, Jesus taught it in his parable of the soils. Now, I never noticed it in Mark chapter four when he's talking about the parable of the soils and he's explaining it to his disciples. He is said to them, do you not understand this parable? Then how will you understand all the parables? In other words, the parable of the soil is sort of a meta parable. In other words, in order to understand other word pictures, you need to understand this word picture. And this word picture is telling you very clearly in the parable of soils that your soil has got to be broken up. It can't have rocks. It can't have weeds, right?
That it needs to be plowed soil. And the idea is actually, if you think about it, is that when we end up in the valley of humiliation, and I'm hoping that at some point in your life you've been there with me. Well, I'm just saying that's what John Bunyan's character Christian ended up in the valley of humiliation.
Well, humiliation is lower. And so, at the very beginning of the second chapter of the Song of Solomon, she says, I'm a rose of Sharon. I'm a lily of the valleys.
Which is an interesting thing to say because Sharon is in the swamps of Israel if you were going to look for it. So, it's a low place and the soil is really good there. And then she says, not I'm a lily of the valley. She says, I'm a lily of the valleys. And so, you can't help but wonder. That's interesting. And he very clearly...
