Mentoring

Season 6, Ep. 117
A lot of attention is given to mentoring and spiritual mentoring today. There is debate today on the origins of the concept. But, one thing is clear-real mentoring is a God orchestrated connection built on friendship and connection. Contrived mentoring is hollow and misses the point. This is the story of a simple little note I received from one of my mentors, Jerry, forty five years ago. It is profound and robust, though it is only a few sentences long. May God bless you with people like Jerry in your life, and may you be a person like Jerry to others!#mentor #mentoring Cut & Paste Personal Invitation to invite your friends to check out “gwot.rocks” podcast:I invite you to check out the podcast, “gwot.rocks: God, the World, and Other Things!” It is available on podcast players everywhere!

Plain Revelation Chapter 8

Season 6, Ep. 116
Friend, when you and I pray, we set a supernatural process in motion.In Revelation chapter 8, we see our prayers are supremely important to God, they are supernaturally energized, and they are soberly efficacious.The prayers of the Saints is the catalyst for the outpouring of God's wrath in final judgement. The first four of seven trumpets that call forth the divine action are featured in this chapter. This is the most serious subject we can discuss, so hold tight and stay with the show to the last note of music is played - in the end the podcast closes out with some encouraging and comforting words from Psalm 46.As featured in the Geneva Bible Study Notes, the verse breakdown for the seven cycles of judgements, each of which leads to a description of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ: 4:1-8:1; 8:2-11:19; 12:1-14:20; 15:1-16:21; 17:1-19:10; 19:11-21; 20:1-15."Studies in Revelation-Lesson 16: The First Four Trumpet Judgements" notes by J. Hampton Keathly, III, were used in the preparation of this podcast. It appears since that original posting the study may now be in book form. Anything he writes is worth the read!Revelation Chapter 8 US>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>All of the links below have been updated and are valid.

Plain Revelation Chapter 7 Part 2

Season 6, Ep. 115
We pick back up with the series "Plain Revelation" in Chapter 7 part two. Jesus gives us a big word of encouragement to all the saints BEFORE we get into the vision of the Great Tribulation. Those who are really saved can worship God in the all the fullness He deserves and we can face the most difficult trials as children of God because he reminds us death can't derail us and in the end we resurrect and WIN!

Bitter Sweet Symphony

Season 6, Ep. 114
Richard Ashcroft, song writer and lead singer for the British rock band "The Verve" penned one of the most memorable songs in rock history. He fought for the rights to it for twenty-two years and finally won. He said in a way "it felt life-affirming." The lyrics to his song were sadly mimicked in the two decade long battle for his song. He hauntingly asks in the chorus, "have you ever been down?" This podcast fits under the heading "Other Things." My hope is that it inspires you to keep on pursuing your dreams and your artistic creativity! God will push through the things he wants to flourish in spite of the garbage the world throws at you!#bittersweetsymphony #theverve #richardashcroft #urbanhymnsHere are some links to Ashcroft's song, the symphony recording they contracted to use, The Rolling Stones' song, and The Staple Singers original song.

The Amazing Woman Who Brought "The Lord of the Rings" Trilogy to Life!

Season 6, Ep. 113
This episode originally aired as episode 17. Due to the newness of the podcast series the episode was not heard by a lot of people. This is a profound message about an amazing person I had the opportunity to know as a teenage kid. Little could I imagine that Carla Fry would grow up to be the second in command of a major Hollywood movie studio and bring her childhood fantasies to life, culminating with "The Lord of the Ring Trilogy". This episode is worth the listen! Friend, it really is true, DON"T JUDGE BOOK BY ITS COVER - you might just miss a really good read!(On the replay of episode 17 you may need to turn up the volume! The audio quality is not as good, the mic was a lot cheaper at the start! But, I include the original because it contains my heart at the moment. I think the old adage may be "You can't judge a book by its cover, but I quote it here as "Don't judge a book by its cover.")#thelordoftherings #lotr #tolkien #jrrtolkien #middleearth #thehobbit #lordoftherings #hobbit #gandalf #legolas #aragorn #fantasy #sauron #silmarillion #frodo #z #thetwotowers #thefellowshipofthering #bilbobaggins #gollum #frodobaggins #elves #art #y #thesilmarillion #gimli #peterjackson #elf #thereturnoftheking #bhfypCut & Paste Personal Invitation to invite your friends to check out “gwot.rocks” podcast:I invite you to check out the podcast, “gwot.rocks: God, the World, and Other Things!” It is available on podcast players everywhere!
