We just gotta get the numbers of the only buddy about that, we got it and I know what Bonnie I am actually a high point and write your High Point University and I'm looking at the bumper sticker on the car and the bumper stickers that God said if my people, which are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will and will forgive their spend will heal their land. And it will you pray? Second Chronicles 714. Man I tell you what to do and then liberty is on fire prevention was on fire not to call your cell phone.

You don't get in voicemail jail you learn about the importance of heaven and hell you get encouraged by this.
Just listen to her comes Michael not answering which is good God so well that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him. I love it, shall not perish but have aquatic life so that so cool Michael, thank you for that and for that for that voicemail. I'm introducing everyone listening. Maybe some haven't met you, but you have to show if not for God, tell us what the show is and tell us how you met Jesus because you're one of the few people I know that came to know Christ, trying to ask a cute girl on a date by my senior year of college and the girl from it was my junior year school we had African-American request together and that she sent me an email over the summer and the email that I don't know what you stated that girl, but I do not like I'd like to ask her out and I that I remembered she was really excited about the and I was a Christian at the time and and I said hey, I'd like to talk with you and meet you like to talk to you about the and I think she figured out pretty.
I would try to take her out but she can't that be that you kept bugging me and bugging me about anybody. One day I said yeah Jesus and the rest is history. Man, thank thank God. I think they call it missionary data. Well, in my case it works. We don't always advise it, but God bless surfer for sticking to your guns ensure the Lord with you. His name is Michael Zwick Yost a show called is not for God and is just a treat to have you with us Michael to hear about what God is doing your life. Why do show if not for God.
It's insert up on a lot of stations Truth Network stations. I believe on Saturday morning just one my favorite shows, listen to, but tell us the name alone is quite engaging in what happens on this program called, if not for God.
Yet if not for God. Stories of hopelessness turned and hope and I'm sitting here right now as I believe it was from 127 work that had not been for the Lord that keeps on going on and on that one Sunday we were in church and after spoke about that method that the name of the show. If not for God and what we talk about people who have really a lot of people look up and turn the other way and there why not know where they were going, not knowing where they were going. Things were rough in the Lord just really got them got their attention. I need it says in Scripture it says you will find me when you search for me with all of your and I 100% 100% believe that. But I also know many people wide. They were running from God and God just found that everything that yeah it is really interesting. You can't your Joan is a great example course. He he found himself in the in the in the in the belly of a giant sea monster before he really came back to the Lord, but there is just one you running from God is quite a quite in a conundrum concept is then that you know it it's so many people I just heard a with an interview from the guy who wrote the case for the case for Christ the case of fate. I believe it was Lee Strobel. What he did with the interview. The guy used to preach with Billy Graham when he was younger and what he did what he finally found this guy and when he when he when he found the guy interviewed him in a nursing home and in the guy had not only her right 80 until he started asking this guy all these questions.
Question after question and finally What you think about Jesus and the old preacher who is now a businessman and end he had start the starting stages of dementia. He started to think globally about Jesus all the what help wonderful person he was a great moral management. All of a sudden he started crying and sobbing uncontrollably and he said I missed I Mr. note there is something in the heart of man that I believe that for God and I believe that from time even if people of one from God. Even if people don't want to know God don't want to know anything don't want anything to do with them, especially if they want to know. And then they turn from them. It can be even tougher for their because one time. They knew the weakness of knowing Jesus and now they walk. Well, maybe that's why some of you naked to turn away from Christianity like what some of the maybe so angry. Yeah, maybe we should be a little bit more understanding. I don't know will. Maybe we should be kind to them that we should read over the head and and have a good conversation which you enjoy doing and it's really fasting some of the greatest minds of all of the face today you mentioned Lee Strobel and award-winning attorney and journalists you know from Chicago Chicago Tribune who sought out to describe the faith to destroy the face became a born-again Christian Faller cry Simon Greenleaf the great Harvard head of the Harvard Law school brilliant minds smarter than anybody I've ever share Christ with whose deny Christ and I bring about my city smarter than him. Are you smarter than Josh McDowell Lee Strobel.
All these names.
These are all men who set out to absolutely trample on the faces discredited. We talked our previous guest with progressive power of archaeology that proves the Scriptures veracity. The cruise that the Bible the word reading is absolutely real and is true in every page of its true. It's the word of God and is accurate not just historically but is accurate. Theologically, it's accurate archaeologically is accurate geographically in the places that you go to study. Acts chapter 27 every detail about Paul in being in the high seas in the shipwreck and was a dinner that vessel to brace it for the storm. Every detail Michael Zwick the historic history affects secular historians going to believe in the God of the Bible. They hold up. Acts 27 is one of the most authentic treatments of nautical mariner seafaring history.
It's right there in the word of God so you and I don't know if you noticed you but you were my favorite verses in the whole Bible Hebrews chapter 4 verse 12 for the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, even to the dividing the thunder of soul and spirit, and of the joint and marrow, and it is a discerner of the thought of the heart is not great well just if you want the word of God says about itself and then all the extra biblical evidences an extra bit of biblical truth and you love telling stories double-click story forced the power of narrative. It's in your show all the time.
What's what's a quick story this this is fresh in your heart will quickly have class. I think last week I went out the winter and in the morning I would burst out to myself. It was Romans chapter 1 verse 20 and I would think for the creation of the world God's invisible qualities in eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly being understood from what has been made so that people are without excuse. I went don't sell insurance that day and I saw this guy started talking to him that I used to be a Christian and I was a Jehovah's Witness and I read the Bible 30 time now I've given up on organized religion. So I started started sharing the gospel with them.
And then all of a sudden you know he said to me, but he quoted Romans one verses 20 and I said that's exactly what I was saying this morning there is something in the heart of man that seeks after God and I wonder maybe if there's listening today listening to your show noble so if they've never given their life. Jesus, I wonder what you would say to them well I just as the invitation from Isaiah 55, comes the water come and drink of everlasting life. Jesus says that this this water I give you will will overflow into eternal life. Jesus said, coming to me all you who are weary and hate heavy laden, and I will give you rest every other religion. Every other belief system. The world is about man climbing a ladder about people getting to God, trying to trying to keep the five pillars trying to try to keep the temple ordinances. Whatever it is but one belief system.
In all of history, God came down to us in that precious baby in the manger and he came to us and the Son of Man came to seek and save the lost. He's calling you right now. Michael Zwick is time to respond and open our heart to Jesus. Amen to that brother. And thanks for having me on your bus.
