I feel that it would do us well to question our understanding of when the "Good News" began. Was it at the outset of Emmanuel? At the Cross? Perhaps at the Resurrection? Surely at the Upper Room, right? No. It is ancient and Yahweh has been extending Good News to mankind since their inception. As we're willing to expand our view, we expand our understanding of Yahweh's great love for us.

The Book of Jasher records an event when the Amorite kings desire to assault the sons of Jacob for what they did to the city of Shechem. They literally wanted to annihilate the Hebrew people entirely and were conspiring a plan to do just that. What transpired is fascinating and is recorded in Jasher. In this episode I read an entire chapter and discuss what it is saying to the Church of 2020.

This episode examines Psalm 40:2 which has many layers of awesome truth within it. What does it even mean to "wait patiently" and what is God doing when "He turns toward us and hears our cry?" Listen and find out!

This episode discusses the warning from God to His people in Ezekiel 14:6. He commands His Church to repent and turn away from Her idolatry and abominations. What does this mean for us today? Are we ourselves guilty of the same practices? I will answer this for you - yes. Yes, we are. So what do we do about it? (We'll even briefly touch on unclean animals being eaten as food.)

All about me, in this hour, I see the constant struggle of men laboring alongside other men to endure, within the Body of Messiah. Within the account of the golden calf (Genesis 32) and Paul's reference of pleasing men (Galatians 2:10), I believe we see some things that can help us rightly carry out our roles, in humility, as we venture into the future of being God's people.

In the latter chapters of Genesis we see Jacob's incredible pursuit of Rachel. For fourteen years he surrendered his own life in order to have her as his wife. Even after he was deceived, he remained - unmoved. In our culture today, this is absolute foolishness - working and laboring in order to attain something our heart desires. I think it would do us well to revisit this principle. Are we, today, willing to serve and give up our very lives in order to pursue pure desires and have all that God has for us?

We've been discussing a lot recently the understanding of being ones who are set apart, fulfilling our priestly function. While those episodes have been primarily focusing on our own actions and deeds, today we will look at Psalm chapter 4 which tells us that "God sets apart the godly man for Himself".
