Revelation 2: The Church at Ephesus

Season 4, Ep. 87
The resurrected, glorified Jesus Christ is seen walking among the lamp stands with the seven stars in His right hand of power. The last verse in chapter one reveals that the seven stars are the seven messengers of the seven churches in Asia. The messengers are the pastors of those seven churches. Christ is physically showing that he holds His under shepherds in his mighty power. No one can snatch them from his hand. Consequently, he also has the power to remove their power and influence in the world. He is giving his evaluation of each and expects them to repent and obey his commands. Though we don’t fully understand all that is implied by having the lamp stand removed, it obviously is severe chastisement that results in great loss for the pastor and the church he leads. This first point of evaluation of Jesus Christ’s leader and church is a hard hitting, transparent, illumination of a sin that can be hidden under the mechanics of Christianity. As we obey Jesus and go back to the love we had at first, manifested by obedient works of service that show God’s love in clear and tangible ways, “…the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers, I will givethe right to eat from the tree of life, which is in[c]the paradise of God.”Revelation 2:1-7https://www.gotquestions.org/Ephesus-in-the-Bible.html The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia is referenced regarding the background on Ephesus.The Hokey Pokey VideoThe Love Dossier- Romans 12:9-21Plain Revelation-Rebirth may not be the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about the book of Revelation, but in the final chapters we see the new heaven and the new earth coming down.Plain Revelation-simple, straight forward talks about how it all will end and begin again…a chapter by chapter look at the book of Revelation.

Through life events that came together between yesterday evening at the time of this writing and this morning, God emphasized some additional thoughts regarding chapter one and the book as a whole. Stay with me through my mental path and it will all make sense by the end of this podcast that is a little under fourteen minutes long.

The Flagella Motor-High Tech in a Low-Tech World

Season 4, Ep. 82
Episode 82Title: The Flagella Motor-High Tech in a Low-Tech WorldSubtitle: Thoughts on BeginningsAs we look toward the book of Genesis and the story of how things started, we will see that God’s fingerprints are all over his creation. If you do not come to the knowledge of the truth that your survival and daily sustenance come from beyond the system, then the system will become your God and Savior, and from the looks of at the political systems that have come and gone in history, your long-term prognosis is grim if you are trusting in the constructs of man. The first book in the Bible, Genesis, starts off declaring, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” The entire rest of the Bible rises or falls on this opening statement. Each human’s right and privilege to self-governance & freedom rests on this fact. To deny this fact, makes you subservient to humans, who in the end, left to their own devices, always do the wrong things.The flagella motor imagesTaylor & Francis OnlineReview Article: The biophysicist’s guide to the bacterial flagellar motorGraphic Image of the Flagellar Motorhttps://www.researchgate.net/figure/Schematic-diagram-of-the-proton-driven-bacterial-flagellar-motor-The-flagellar-motor_fig2_263513554https://www.nano.gov/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!

Smoking

Season 4, Ep. 81
Smoking was on my mind today. I've buried a lot of people who died from lung cancer. It's for the most part preventable, if people would just stop smoking. It's a heavy habit that is hard to break. But the consequences of continuing are predictable and merciless. I am tired of people suffering because of cigarettes. So, this episode is not preachy, just caring and concerned. I do start off on a lighter note as we get into the reality of smoking. Share this episode with a smoker you care for, it could change their life. At the end of the podcast I tell about what God told me when he woke me up at 3:48am this morning about the present condition of our world.
