i am doing great today i had a great week last week my

[lc]:

week

[dr__j]:

wife celebrated her birthday so we were away at the beach so i can't complain oh

[lc]:

you know i am still not been to the beach after

[dr__j]:

a

[lc]:

being here for a

[dr__j]:

ah

[lc]:

couple of months and i don't remember the last time i touched

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

the atlantic ocean

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

i spent a lot of time in the

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

pacific though i'm thinking it's probably pet cold this far north at least

[dr__j]:

no where we

[lc]:

m

[dr__j]:

were we were in north myrtle beach the water was warm

[lc]:

a

[dr__j]:

it felt like it was in maybe the eighties very comfortable it was it

[lc]:

that's

[dr__j]:

was

[lc]:

way

[dr__j]:

great

[lc]:

better

[dr__j]:

the time to go to the beach if you're not used to it on the east coast is wait till the month of

[lc]:

exactly

[dr__j]:

beginning of september or the end of august

[lc]:

yes

[dr__j]:

the water is really really warm m ye

[lc]:

good to know because in the paget sound

[dr__j]:

ah

[lc]:

it is outside seattle is it is cold the year round

[dr__j]:

yes

[lc]:

you could you can probably get away of wearing a wet suit and it's

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

full of gilly fish well thinks so

[dr__j]:

i

[lc]:

i'm

[dr__j]:

had

[lc]:

excited

[dr__j]:

a

[lc]:

to live on a lake now

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

yeah

[dr__j]:

i have a twin sister and she used to live up in boston and no matter when you went to the ocean up there it was but you get down further south it's nice

[lc]:

okay

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

we've established on the show this is the top of the south and

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

so i'm learning that there are palm trees and that apparently the water is warmer than

[dr__j]:

no

[lc]:

i thought

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

i have no problem admitting my ignorance when it comes to that and and that's kind of a good transition to what we want to talk about

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

to talk about and act sixteen

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

the demonized who tells

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

fortunes that paul and silas come into contact with during their time in philippi and

[dr__j]:

i

[lc]:

being associated with people so i mean you're associated with me now and in the my complete ignorance to the east coast culture as a whole

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

a transplant here i mean what are your thoughts like is there a time in your life or maybe

[dr__j]:

a

[lc]:

you had repaired with someone that maybe brought you down a little bit

[dr__j]:

yeah well i think what it matters who you're associated with you know who you hang out with

[lc]:

an out

[dr__j]:

will have an impact

[lc]:

you have

[dr__j]:

on you and so

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

when i was in third grade there was this guy in my class

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

that i really looked up to because he

[lc]:

is

[dr__j]:

was sort of

[lc]:

oh

[dr__j]:

a non conformist to the rest of the class

[lc]:

oh

[dr__j]:

his name was carl roy

[lc]:

yea

[dr__j]:

and he had problems the first to simes s are the first two quarters is what we had in great school and so the teacher decided to put me next to him because she thought i could have a positive influence

[lc]:

like

[dr__j]:

on him and carl

[lc]:

yeah

[dr__j]:

and i long just great we goofed off throughout class we got in trouble together i learned

[lc]:

ah

[dr__j]:

a whole bunch of new words because i had lived a sheltered life and i'd come home and introduce

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

these words to my family and then get a spank for saying those words and so what was interesting is

[lc]:

yeah

[dr__j]:

at the end of that year karl flunked third grade so i didn't have an impact on him but also at the end of the

[lc]:

a

[dr__j]:

year my grades

[lc]:

so

[dr__j]:

went

[lc]:

at the

[dr__j]:

down a little i was a straight a student so i just got some bees in our school you would

[lc]:

or

[dr__j]:

get and o for outstanding and s for

[lc]:

and

[dr__j]:

satisfactory

[lc]:

they

[dr__j]:

in the letter n meant it's improvement and i got a bunch of ends

[lc]:

m

[dr__j]:

on my

[lc]:

ah

[dr__j]:

report card so what i learned from that as i look

[lc]:

ye

[dr__j]:

back is that you have to be very careful because those who you associate with

[lc]:

yes

[dr__j]:

have a great ability to influence you may be better than you have an ability influence

[lc]:

and

[dr__j]:

them that sort of lines up with scripture

[lc]:

definitely

[dr__j]:

doesn't it uh yeah the bible says he who walks with wise men will

[lc]:

a

[dr__j]:

be wise but a companion of fools will be destroyed bad company corrupts good morals

[lc]:

no

[dr__j]:

blessed is the one who

[lc]:

good

[dr__j]:

does

[lc]:

morals

[dr__j]:

not walk in the council of the ungodly or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of the scorner so

[lc]:

a

[dr__j]:

um if that's who i was third grade

[lc]:

that's

[dr__j]:

i think that happens throughout your life even as an adult you have to be careful who you associate with yeah

[lc]:

definitely you know it's

[dr__j]:

okay

[lc]:

funny you say that because when i was in third grade i had a group

[dr__j]:

uh

[lc]:

of friends and i

[dr__j]:

h

[lc]:

was second grade second grade

[dr__j]:

m yeah

[lc]:

because i had second

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

grade in the country of england the state of california and in the state of washington all in the same year and

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

so it was kind of tumultuous part of my

[dr__j]:

wow

[lc]:

life growing up and that's probably why i still can't spell that's what i used as my handicap in reason and so anyways i had a couple of friends and you know we were we were sitting in class and we came up with this genius idea that if we if we didn't take our home work out of our cubbies

[dr__j]:

ah

[lc]:

we didn't actually have home work so

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

i probably we went like a week in hanna or so maybe more i'm not sure time feels different when you're in second grade than it does as adult right and my parents are like why does he get any work and then of course my teacher miss sunby she

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

she called my parents called my mom and as like hogan's not taking home any of his work and he's failing the

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

same way i was probably getting

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

ends or something equivalent in the same way and it was because i was being influenced by these people around me that

[dr__j]:

hm

[lc]:

we'd all made kind of a pack to do the same thing and it became an issue right and that's kind of what you see happening here as you have this girl and she's flowing around paul and silas and she's saying these are followers and worshippers of the most high

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

god and you know

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

we have slightly different opinions on this but you know all right you say your your portion of it but for me you know i look at this this portion de scription and i think about you know why why does in the next verse say that paul gets really irritated with this girl and he ends up turning around in the name of j is in casting this evil spirit out of her as giving her this supernatural ability well first you seeing you know counterfeit idea of of what god that girl is not getting knowledge from the holy spirit she's getting knowledge from statement

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

as minions and that's a form of demonic prophecy and but aside from that you know the

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

vagueness i think causes a lot of confuse and because in that greco roman

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

culture that you've got going on you've got

[dr__j]:

yeah yeah

[lc]:

most

[dr__j]:

ah

[lc]:

high god could mean a lot of things to whoever is just hearing it and so that's why you know when you're dealing with you're dealing with

[dr__j]:

ah

[lc]:

with other people you need to define your terms because you'll end

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

up talking to people that profess to be followers of jesus

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

or followers of god in this case and they are not

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

meaning the same thing as you do and and so you know the god of greece

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

would be zeus or

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

jupiter and roman when they do youtismm which is like a big word for to absorb all the cultures like oh yeah we totally worship the same people and so defining your terms is so important

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

when it comes to who is the most high god what are your thoughts i the interaction is going on right

[dr__j]:

well

[lc]:

there

[dr__j]:

you know in the old testament the most

[lc]:

a

[dr__j]:

high god is a very common name and people use that daniel uses it to

[lc]:

an

[dr__j]:

describe god but you know what's interesting here is in philip

[lc]:

interesting

[dr__j]:

piet

[lc]:

her

[dr__j]:

doesn't mention a synagogue and other places

[lc]:

and

[dr__j]:

that paul goes to he starts in the synagogue right when he's in becidian

[lc]:

h

[dr__j]:

antioch or when he goes to iconium he tries to start in the synagogue and he teaches

[lc]:

just

[dr__j]:

people who know who the most high god is but when he comes to philippi there's

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

no man and of a synagogue he ends up having to go to the river right where people are praying and so you know this lady following them around

[lc]:

he

[dr__j]:

was probably not drawing

[lc]:

ah

[dr__j]:

attention ould argue that right to ya

[lc]:

yeah

[dr__j]:

way the most high god she was just speaking a term that

[lc]:

we

[dr__j]:

people would say okay this is the most high god it could have been a way to some it could have been zoos to other but

[lc]:

yes

[dr__j]:

i think the difficulty for paul

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

was is you have someone that's following you around that's appearing to be on your side but the truth is she's draw

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

ing more attention to satan's power

[lc]:

same

[dr__j]:

she's

[lc]:

m

[dr__j]:

drawing more people to look to him

[lc]:

a

[dr__j]:

than will look to jesus right because

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

people are looking at her and saying well she's been

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

great telling fortunes

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

she's successful at what she does she's got some special powers about her

[lc]:

as

[dr__j]:

and now she's accurate telling

[lc]:

he

[dr__j]:

that these are servants of the most high god does she follow and she

[lc]:

she

[dr__j]:

wasn't following the god of the bible

[lc]:

oh

[dr__j]:

right she's not following the most high god a way

[lc]:

not at all

[dr__j]:

she's not following jesus at all

[lc]:

jesus

[dr__j]:

she's led by satan and so if anyone follows her they're going to be following satan and paul doesn't want

[lc]:

yes

[dr__j]:

that connected with his ministry because it's powerful

[lc]:

it's

[dr__j]:

satan can speak prophecies

[lc]:

we

[dr__j]:

right he may not be able to see what's going to happen in the future but he

[lc]:

sure

[dr__j]:

s very good at what's happening

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

right now and he can pre it probabilities of what might happen in the future

[lc]:

yeah

[dr__j]:

and he certainly knows who god is and he certainly knows who jesus is so he can deceive oh

[lc]:

right and so i know from from some of my studies that you know

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

in english we get the weird demon from diamante which literally

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

just means intelligence

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

and so

[dr__j]:

m m

[lc]:

and that is

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

you know the anglocized version of it and that's this

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

idea that

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

demons are not dumb like i don't know why

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

people seem to think that demons are dumb and if you think they're dumb you're wrong there there very very old and very very wise that doesn't mean that they don't have to submit to the name of jesus but they are far smarter than us as humans at least in this this life

[dr__j]:

h

[lc]:

and

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

we can't underrate

[dr__j]:

yeah when

[lc]:

that

[dr__j]:

confronting yeah

[lc]:

right

[dr__j]:

when confronting a demon you got to

[lc]:

even

[dr__j]:

realize first he's smarter than you are he's stronger than you are he's faster than you are and that's why the only way we can overcome satan is in the

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

name of jesus

[lc]:

a jes

[dr__j]:

jesus is smarter he's stronger he's wiser he's faster than any demon

[lc]:

yes

[dr__j]:

and and then satan himself

[lc]:

yes and he has all authority under heaven and so

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

and

[dr__j]:

that's

[lc]:

that's

[dr__j]:

true

[lc]:

really kind of a good way to look at that

[dr__j]:

my

[lc]:

so what does paul do right this girl is coming around and it says

[dr__j]:

ah

[lc]:

that he gets really annoyed with her et around

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

he rebuts the spirit and says

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

in the name of jesus christ be and and then of course

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

this this the owner of the girl is a slave girl that was making all this money for them we're

[dr__j]:

a

[lc]:

extorting her they ended

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

up getting really furious

[dr__j]:

ah

[lc]:

and causing them to get beaten and stripped and thrown in prison all the things and that's

[dr__j]:

ah

[lc]:

one of the things that we need to expect

[dr__j]:

ah

[lc]:

i think you're talking before about how we define who we're talking about and how the name of jesus is so

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

necessary

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

but

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

also offensive right

[dr__j]:

it's interesting that

[lc]:

just saying

[dr__j]:

satan

[lc]:

there

[dr__j]:

lets this girl over and over again say the most high god and i think satan is

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

fine

[lc]:

think

[dr__j]:

if we mention god

[lc]:

yes mention

[dr__j]:

his way of deceiving people is not through atheism for the most part yes there's atheism it's on the rise today

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

but i think satan

[lc]:

think

[dr__j]:

sends a a lot more people to hell who say i believe in god they don't believe

[lc]:

acres

[dr__j]:

in the god of the bible that is revealed to us

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

through his

[lc]:

be interet

[dr__j]:

son jesus christ and so

[lc]:

oh

[dr__j]:

you can see why people are fine

[lc]:

a

[dr__j]:

if we mention the name

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

of god

[lc]:

mention

[dr__j]:

movies right that they talk

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

about god and no one has a problem with that

[lc]:

oh

[dr__j]:

but the minute

[lc]:

m

[dr__j]:

you start using the name jesus people get offended and that's not new right

[lc]:

yea

[dr__j]:

that happened in the book of acts

[lc]:

and they should

[dr__j]:

the

[lc]:

be offended

[dr__j]:

right the chief

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

priest right

[lc]:

iras

[dr__j]:

they said hey it's okay if you apostles talk about god just don't you

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

ever

[lc]:

just

[dr__j]:

mention the name of jesus again

[lc]:

cases

[dr__j]:

and that's where they took their

[lc]:

that's

[dr__j]:

stand i had a situation

[lc]:

in

[dr__j]:

years back where i was asked to pray for the opening of a town council meeting in perseville

[lc]:

m

[dr__j]:

virginia

[lc]:

oh

[dr__j]:

and i opened up with prayer and always do this i end every prayer i pray it in the name of jesus and when i

[lc]:

definitely

[dr__j]:

finished one of the ladies on the town council came up to me and she

[lc]:

yeah

[dr__j]:

was jewish and she said you know we have just i did this as a talent council that when we asked chaplains to pray we asked them not to pray specifically in the name of jesus is that could be offensive to people and

[lc]:

yeah

[dr__j]:

i said to her well then i won't be praying for your town council

[lc]:

it

[dr__j]:

meetings and here's why i explained to her is you know the people that came before me the apostles were willing to die in order to

[lc]:

m

[dr__j]:

speak the name of jesus and they were told by

[lc]:

a

[dr__j]:

jewish leaders

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

don't mention the name of jesus and they said we're going to obey god rather than men and there is no soul ation under any other name except the name of jesus and i said to her for me not to mention the name of jesus would dishonor him the person that died on the cross to pay for my sins and in my

[lc]:

ah

[dr__j]:

belief it would dishonor his father the

[lc]:

no

[dr__j]:

most high god right the one

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

and only true god if you don't honor the son you're not honoring the father right you all have if you have

[lc]:

you

[dr__j]:

a child

[lc]:

have

[dr__j]:

and someone this is your child how does that make you feel if you have a child and someone

[lc]:

the

[dr__j]:

ignores

[lc]:

child

[dr__j]:

your child continue how does that make you feel it offends you and so to be faithful to my father in heaven i have to do things in the name of jesus

[lc]:

oh definitely yeah it makes me think about of course the military

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

and you know

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

the idea that the people that have died in battle you know have have died for a reason that's you know for the benefit of our nation and i had when i was serving the for kind of a similar situation

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

where i had a few different times where i'd give the complication to the for for the ceremony it was like a promotion ceremonies and different different events on the base for for different things and one of the things that that i would be talk to afterward was that i would name all name jesus in

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

all my prayers and be very specific and distinct

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

about which high god i am discussing

[dr__j]:

ah

[lc]:

because it's offensive is what was told as well and i'm not going to change don't ask me to pray then because

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

it's it's jesus or nothing and

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

so i'm like

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

go get get someone else because and that's one of the one of the things that you're seeing in all levels of government your politicians they say oh

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

we're praying to god

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

which oh

[dr__j]:

h

[lc]:

you know sometimes

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

you have to say which jesus because they re false christs

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

you know all about as well and and this idea i remember in twenty twenty one the united methodist pass yer prayed before congress at the opening of congress and he ended the prayer with a whole bunch of different

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

traditions being represented

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

of hinduism and of hristian and maybe jewish i don't know and so when he did that i feel like he failed

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

you know that was an opportunity

[dr__j]:

hm

[lc]:

before congress to speak the name of jesus as the exclusive god of the universe

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

and that is of divinity and because of that

[dr__j]:

yeah yeah

[lc]:

oh

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

and so anyways

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

you know in the same way we can we have the opportunity to either be obedient follow jesus name and his power specifically and declare

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

him or we can falter and i believe that's sinful especially as a pastor to be disobedient and not clarified who we're talking about

[dr__j]:

well i think jesus even said it right he said whoever confesses me before men him will i confess before

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

my father

[lc]:

like

[dr__j]:

in heaven but whoever denies me before men i will deny right and who it is ashamed of

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

me

[lc]:

shame

[dr__j]:

and of my words right i'm going to be ashamed and so i think the point here is

[lc]:

the

[dr__j]:

the turning point for paul

[lc]:

all right

[dr__j]:

and silas was when they pronounced the name of christ jesus

[lc]:

cite

[dr__j]:

over this demon possessed girl instantly

[lc]:

yesterday

[dr__j]:

she was delivered she was saved the bible says in that same hour she was set free but also in that same hour persecution was unleashed

[lc]:

satin

[dr__j]:

like

[lc]:

you should

[dr__j]:

almost they had never experienced before and i think you're going to find that that when you boldly proclaim the name of jesus you're going t see miracles place but then on the other hand all the forces of hell are going to come out against you

[lc]:

chap

[dr__j]:

and you know they grabbed them they took them

[lc]:

yeah

[dr__j]:

before the magic streets they were stripped of their clothes they

[lc]:

a

[dr__j]:

were beaten um it was just it was like

[lc]:

yeah

[dr__j]:

a whirlwind of persecution that happened because they mentioned the name of jesus and so you have to be prepared

[lc]:

this is a

[dr__j]:

that god is

[lc]:

favorite

[dr__j]:

going to do great miracles in the name of jesus but you're going to endure persecution for the name of jesus

[lc]:

right and that you know here in the west that's on something that we're really that used to at the level that we're

[dr__j]:

no

[lc]:

seeing in other parts of the world especially like china right

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

that's what comes to mind when i think of it because the church is growing it's interest how persecution causes

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

growth it

[dr__j]:

that's right

[lc]:

and and i don't really want to go down that trail on this one but

[dr__j]:

h

[lc]:

and

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

this is kind of part one of we want to talk about the same situation in another episode and one of the things we want to about is deliver it ministry and

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

if you're familiar with that that term it means it means casting out demons and you know where you want to discuss i'll be interested to how you guys thoughts are and and reading the book it's only a demon right now and i've done a lot

[dr__j]:

thank

[lc]:

of research on on this

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

but there's you know the bible is not very very clear about the procedures of coming against

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

the kingdom of satan and

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

but is it the responsibility of all christians to do you have a deliverance ministry that's one of the major things that jesus did in his life you know he had healings

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

and when healing is at times a deliverance and then then may it doesn't fix everything always but then maybe there's a time for counseling other things afterward but spiritual warfare is something that really needs to be discussed in the cure more especially

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

in maybe the southern baptist convention we don't talk about

[dr__j]:

right

[lc]:

it a whole lot

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

we like to

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

joke right that were wrebaptic hostiles i've adopted your

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

term because there's some truth there that i think is lacking that we all need to have this this supernatural

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

world view when it comes to scripture becase that's exactly what we see i don't the gifts have stopped at all and that we are commanded to do that doesn't mean everything is a demon but some things are very clearly even and

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

that it's going to be a good

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

discussion

[dr__j]:

yeah hey i'm looking forward to that

[lc]:

a

[dr__j]:

i think something you have

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

to deal with is you know there are people today that

[lc]:

thank

[dr__j]:

very much

[lc]:

very much

[dr__j]:

overplay satan but then there i think many more in evangelical circles that down play satan's involvement in the world and you have to come to terms with this every historical book in the new testament which would be matthew mark luke john and ax so if you're looking to what was recorded in the

[lc]:

ah

[dr__j]:

early church and during jesus's ministry

[lc]:

right

[dr__j]:

had

[lc]:

so

[dr__j]:

a strong emphasis

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

overcoming and fighting against satan

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

the end of mark says you know one of

[lc]:

makes

[dr__j]:

the signs that will company those who believe is they'll cast out demons

[lc]:

hm

[dr__j]:

in my name and when we stand before the lord right they're

[lc]:

a

[dr__j]:

going to be people who say oh i cast out demons in your name and they didn't truly follow the lord right they didn't truly follow jesus so they're not going to go to he and but the fact that jesus mentions

[lc]:

jesus

[dr__j]:

that means that

[lc]:

m

[dr__j]:

there were people who weren't even truly saved that in jesus's name were casting out demons how much more

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

mark should those who are truly born again and saved be used by the holy spirit and in jesus's name to conquer and defeat the kingdom of satan so i can't wait to talk about

[lc]:

you

[dr__j]:

that next week

[lc]:

definitely

[dr__j]:

i guess

[lc]:

and just the the comfort in his

[dr__j]:

go

[lc]:

name

[dr__j]:

ahead

[lc]:

right

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

because like i was here last night at the church until about nine thirty and i was the only person in the church and it's kind of creepy to be in a church by yourself like

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

very dark and you know what like the comfort that i get is just openly just pray

[dr__j]:

right

[lc]:

to jesus as i'm walking around i don't know if that's some weird insecurity thing but

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

biblically and theologically that is the right answer claim to jesus right for comfort and

[dr__j]:

oh

[lc]:

i think that's

[dr__j]:

is

[lc]:

way that we should

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

be operating

[dr__j]:

so next week we get to talk about the power of jesus's name and and conquering satan but you know just a thought to sort of leave you with if you're listening to us today or watching us today is when have you used the name of jesus

[lc]:

this

[dr__j]:

right

[lc]:

great

[dr__j]:

the apostle paul didn't just talk about the most high god he pronounced the name of jesus christ

[lc]:

it's

[dr__j]:

and i think we have opportunities

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

to do that every day you can speak the name of jesus over your children if you have children if you are at your place of work

[lc]:

a

[dr__j]:

have you mentioned jesus's name today to someone at work when you go out to a restaurant right go out to

[lc]:

m

[dr__j]:

eat have you taken time to speak the name of jesus if you do a

[lc]:

cases

[dr__j]:

good deed for someone which is great to do but the bible as we're to do everything in the name of jesus

[lc]:

yeah

[dr__j]:

when you eat and drink right

[lc]:

yeah

[dr__j]:

just before you eat a meal you should be thanking jesus and you should actually include him at the table with you right he says i stand at the door and knock and if your left and i'll dine with you

[lc]:

i

[dr__j]:

i think every meal you can

[lc]:

you

[dr__j]:

invite jesus to sit at you with the table

[lc]:

thank

[dr__j]:

and take part with you and so let's speak the name of jesus to

[lc]:

cas

[dr__j]:

others over others this week

[lc]:

absolutely i think that's a great way to end you know and

[dr__j]:

ah

[lc]:

he only thing i would add to that is

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

you know i recently moved

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

into a new house one of the first things like it was dedicate my home to jesus and i went around

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

and every

[dr__j]:

m

[lc]:

room and bless that and i think we're gonna be doing that to one of our members here soon this

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:

sunday so thank you

[dr__j]:

yeah

[lc]:
