Questions/Issues Discussed:

What did the Alabama Supreme Court do in February of this year that sent the IVF industry into a frenzy? Kristen Ullman discusses details of the case and the major blow to devastated families.

Over 4.1 million embryos were created in recent years with only 90,000+ live births. What happed to the other 4 million babies? Kristen Ullman reveals that many embryos are used for medical experiments and this must be stopped immediately.

GOD MEETS WOMEN WHERE THEY ARE
Discussed by Sara Tracey
with The What's UP Radio Program

Have you ever noticed how in the scriptures men are always going up into the mountains to commune with the Lord?  Yet in the scriptures we hardly ever hear of women going to the mountains.

But we know why — right?

Because the women were too busy keeping life going. They couldn’t abandon babies, meals, homes, fires, gardens, and a thousand other responsibilities to make the climb into the mountains!

I was talking to a friend the other day, saying that as modern woman, I feel like I’m never “free” enough from my responsibilities - never in a quiet enough space I want with God.

Her response floored me: “That is why God comes to women. Men have to climb the mountain to meet God, but God comes to women where ever they are.”

I have been pondering on her words for weeks and have searched my scriptures to see that what she said is true. God does in deed come to women where they are – when they are doing their ordinary, everyday work.

He meets them at the wells where they draw water for their families, in their homes, in their kitchens, in their gardens. He comes to them as they sit beside sickbeds, as they give birth, care for the elderly, and perform necessary mourning and burial rites.

Even at the empty tomb, Mary was the first to witness Christ’s resurrection. She was there because she was doing the womanly chore of properly preparing Christ’s body for burial.

In these seemingly mundane and ordinary tasks, these women of the scriptures found themselves face to face with divinity.

So if you ever start to bemoan the fact that you don’t have as much time to spend in the mountains with God as you would like, remember, God comes to women. He knows where we are and the burdens we carry. He sees us. If we open our eyes and our hearts we will see Him, even in the most ordinary places and in the most ordinary things. He is using a time such as this to speak to women around the world.

REASONS TO VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

A testimonial by Dennis Prager reads: “I read it twice.

On the front cover is this from President Donald Trump: “A great book for your reading enjoyment.”

A New York Times bestselling author, Katie Pavlich, states: “The most efficient way to learn about the issues that Democrats really care about. This is a must-read.”

The title of this must-get, must-read, must-give to those on the fence: “Reasons to Vote for Democrats.”

Yep, just under reading the Bible, this is next on the list. If the pages were numbered, it would run close to 200 pages. It is an easy, quick read and very memorable. Each page is basically blank. There are NO reasons printed to ever vote for Democrats. Order your copy today. Proudly display it in your home or office. Everyone who sees it and reads the title will pick it up and flip through all the empty pages. Their reaction will tell you immediately where they stand. Make note, for now you know who to take with you when you vote.

Who is the Church? How does the Church share in the triumph of Jesus Christ? Will we recognize the warnings/signs? Will those with the Mark of the Beast be redeemed or are they doomed to hell?

POINTS FOR HOME:

God keeps ALL of His people! (Revelation 7:4; 14:1)

We sing a new song! (Revelation 14:3)

We have been sealed! (Revelation 14:13)

NO CONDEMNATION
Discussed by Pastor Jarrett Stephens
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 5

Pastor Jarrett Stephens continues his summer series this week entitled: “Promise Keeper”. The focus each week will be on a different promise from God found in the Bible – both the Old and New Testaments. His sermon this week is on Romans 8:1 “There is, therefore, now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”

Find Pastor Jarrett Stephens’ sermon here.

QUESTIONS / ISSUES DISCUSSED:

OUR FUTU
RE

British New Testament scholar and retired Anglican Bishop N.T. Wright once stated: “The Greek word nyn ‘now’ is important here. There is therefore now no condemnation. This is both logical (now therefore) and temporal (in the present time). The future verdict can be announced in the present, because the Messiah has dealt with his people’s sins, and the spirit indwells them to bring them to resurrection.”

Why did Paul bookend Romans 8 with “no condemnation” with “no separation”? (Romans 8:31-39)

FINAL THOUGHTS:

No separation” is possible because “no condemnation” is a reality. It’s a promise that we can claim and cling to from now until the day we stand before God.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, text the word JESUS to 77069 and a pastor or counselor from CFBC will call you back.

PRAYER
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program



Father,

Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things and by your will they existed and were created.

The heavens declare your glory, O God, and the sky above proclaims your handiwork.

Forgive us when we walk outside your guardrails.

Hide not your face from your children. Turn not your servants away in anger, O you who have been our help. Cast us not off; forsake us not, O God of our salvation!

Create in each a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within us. Teach us your ways, O Lord, and lead us between your guardrails, for the devil and his minions are prowling, seeking those to devour.

Now, let’s be going, doing battle against the enemy, sharing the Good News.

May new souls be added to the kingdom in abundance.

For it is in His name we pray,

Amen
