The following program is recorded content created by the Truth Network mobile show where biblical reality meets the everyday issues of life in your home, at work, and even in politics. Steve is an ordinary man who believes in an extraordinary God it on his show. There's plenty of grace and lots of true no sacred call Steve now 86 34 true 866-34-TRUTH or checking out online, Steve Noble Joe.com now here's your house and Mary Fran and what of wonderful, joyous celebration excited for that. So today I just want to give it to you straight from the shoulder up like what what does that even mean straight from the shoulder. Mr. Pres., so I'm not I want to spend my last live down there before Christmas talking about COBIT or Pres. Biden, but he did speak a little earlier.
I watched it and it was like Jan are pretty much the same stuff but he did open saying something about to get you straight in the shoulder. He talked about us unvaccinated people a lot and that and omicron, cold, depending on what Dr. talking to. I waited to hear.
They said anything but immunity of your natural immunity could you had COBIT and got over it. So God did and programmed your body to T cells and you know design, the God of the universe who I think knows what he's doing and natural immunity never comes up you got it. Your immune to it now T cells have the memories so your you're doing great. We don't know yet how long it lasted. It could be your entire life but then want to talk about that then and then want to talk about natural immunity because where's the profit in that there's no control there. You can't sell anything that shows God and so we don't want to do anything with that so he talked a lot about all on Sunday. Ask people. Many have a patriotic duty. Get your booster.
They said that on the 20 times. Apparently the present noncitizen.
Apparently, yet she's fine with vaccinating 5 to 11-year-olds even mentioned the vaccinating kids under the age of five. That's sick. We talked about that yesterday, and so on 42 minutes not one mid mention of net or natural immunity acquired immunity because like I said there's no there's no angle on that and then towards the end he did talk about the beam.
I think making available me by mail 500 million rapid tests okay, but that's good thanks I appreciate that I really do that. I'm done. Don't talk about that.

One thing that like that former caller that everyone involved in Christ for sacrifice much and the family unit is very easy for the sacrifice that then back to me and your obedient, you work calling, and all the answers ahead to get back and having no place to be here Easter and AlterNet. But if you sacrifice that he not only in it for that. Well, just such a great and powerful point. I love that word sacrifice and certainly they didn't know us personally. Jesus does but they didn't.
And the fact that they went through everything they went through and sacrificed for this greater calling, which is the bit to the benefit of all of us that are believers today really an awesome thing.
What about Maria what about just this week, in and of itself anything about the Christmas experience it's really special for you.

Yep, that's amazing what a great point, David. What about just the experience itself as we go through a Christmas week.
What aspects of it are most important are most special for you in my mind in it, and it may go off the board a little bit for Christian.
For many many years up to four years ago I was an active opiate addiction and Bob at dunamis and a shot here will the cooler with the dock shop and let me tell you people out there regularly and there's a lot here. Because numbers don't law that you don't know that her heaven mastiff issues with this situation and when I got clean.

Think about that for a second.
That's mind-boggling. The reason for the season. Reason for the season with everything in Jesus Jesus Jesus right and actually from that perspective.
The reason for the season as you me that that's why the incarnation had to happen.
By the way, if you want to read something that will absolutely blow you away, probably besides the Bible it very well could end up being the oldest book you've ever read. Okay it's only about looking at. I want to put the link up on Facebook live. It's only about 630 pages maybe 40 pages yet it's 40 pages. Okay it's 40 pages. It's called on the incarnation, the incarnation being God taking on flesh.
The God man, Jesus Christ. Okay, that's the incarnation on the incarnation by St. Athanasius. Okay St. Athanasius wrote on the incarnation and you wrote it a few years ago. Does anybody know what year. St. Ignatius wrote this in all I'll share little excerpt from it when we come back in the final segment, but what do you just just think about it, what year do you think St. Ignatius wrote on the incarnation like like what's up with that is it is a fairly recent book, was it written you know, back during the early days of American history, was it written you know maybe pre-World War I. What you think when he thinks St. Athanasius wrote on the incarnation and at some mind-boggling thing to contemplate and perhaps that's what it is for you, but would love to hear from you today 866-34-TRUTH 87884 Rachel's on hold in North Carolina reach out to get you right after the break them in at the breaker in about 20 seconds and I want to give you enough time to fully answer and share what's on your heart today.

From the time we were little kids we could not open any Christmas present. And Kelly all gathered hands together around our training training and think Silent Night and that mean I'm 57 and I remember that I have carried out through with my my family my kids and grandkids teaching them about the Lord make they were safe and in Christian and call it just so you know they know the Lord there off the bat that which is good because the world is crazy right now that what will it I had a shift yesterday in my life. My sister departed this crazy world went on to be with our Lord and Savior my heart. I'm so grateful that I listen to the Holy Spirit in 2012 and called her and if she knew Jesus as their personal savior and had a relationship with now. Should I I I I didn't understand that her children were going to church or adult children, purchased the painting ministries share the gospel with no I'm just so thankful that I live in my mind.

She was in Washington state. She would call me six or seven times a day while I know the only one that she could pour into over here what she was going through and what she was really she couldn't even do that with their own children so I'm crazy for that relationship and that God is the God of family and restoration is love where I come from the fear.
