Church Notes

11:00 AM US PDT — We stream at the top of the hour. Did you prepare for the hurricane? 

JLP requested this BQ response (read Fri on JLP show)

JayVTheGreat’s Coffee on — his answer on the Biblical Question: Are you in control of your life? 

I believe that we are in control of our lives.. the decisions that we make everyday is what shape our lives. Some people choose to do things for all of the wrong reasons & it leads them down a path of distruction (sic)… so how do people end up in prison for their decisions, or getting into toxic relationships, becoming addicts or becoming homeless for etc.? I know some will say that God control our lives, but what about those that don’t even believe in God?.. I look forward to hearing your 2 cents.

  23. 0:37:33 JLP: If you didn’t fill-in time? You’d go free. Time’s an illusion, an idea, not real
  24. 0:38:56 Lady and JLP speak: Demon of lies screaming, “Don’t you dare!”
  25. 0:41:43 (JLP: If everyone stopped thinking we’d have peace on earth. Devil wants you thinking; Ex: storm panic… Dopamine, high feeling vs natural energy. Thinking. Watch thoughts, never forget)

  29. 0:51:05 (JLP: Never think you’re doing a good thing or bad thing; another false idea from the Devil; he keeps you divided…) Devil will have you robbing a store! You’re not paying attention to the Devil! No ideas; the intellect gets in the way. The Devil quotes the Bible! 
  30. 0:54:06 Tomar (sp): Seven Guaranteed Steps book: In stillness, the universe was created. 
  31. 0:54:50 Man’s story: The Devil loves to argue. Catch the thought… 
  32. 0:56:58 Sean responds to man: World seems different after being lost in a thought. JLP: Practice watching the thoughts, the more you’re aware of them. 
  33. 0:58:13 Why do some want to overcome, others don’t? Most love the Devil, their Hell. 
  34. 1:00:44 Lady asks a question
  35. 1:02:48 Sean follows-up with a Q
  36. 1:04:16 (JLP: Most not gonna make it… When the Devil knows he has to depart…)

  40. 1:11:35 Lady responds…
  41. 1:12:57 (JLP Q: Why would someone make a decision to commit a crime, go to prison? Who influenced them to go to college? Come out crazy as a Betsy bug)
  42. 1:14:25 Hake responds to the read BQ response
  43. 1:17:18 Doug… Sounds like man
  44. 1:18:15 Doug: Do you believe God controls your life? I dunno!
  45. 1:23:17 Kamran repeats a Q: If a man acted as Christ without believing in God?
  46. 1:24:44 (JLP: Believing is not enough; you must know Him)
  47. 1:25:28 Doug adds to his answer… 
  48. 1:25:59 (JLP: Even the sinners get a job, and are fat, whether they believe in God or not) 
  49. 1:26:40 JLP: Satan controls sinners, not God. Never made a decision, no free will
  50. 1:30:14 Q: How do you deal with fear?
  51. 1:33:10 Franky endured fear a week ago, for the first time…
  52. 1:34:13 JLP: Overcoming. Most fill-in the empty space, make a short story long! Satan brings distraction. 
  53. 1:36:51 JLP: Go through the valley of the shadow of death; you have not yet. Most won’t face it. (People talk right, but overreact when their ego’s hurt by someone!) 
  54. 1:39:30 JLP: Face the Devil in trembling; everyone has fear, which is not real, but of the Devil. Live in the fear. The greater the fear, the better. You think it’s you. Do nothing about it; the light will show you it’s not you. You will see you’re the light, not the darkness. If you don’t live in it, you’re living with it, thinking it’s you. Those sincere, stop doing anything about your fear. Welcome fear… don’t tell people. Don’t let anyone save you from fear; you’re giving it life. 
  55. 1:44:18 JLP: You haven’t seen hell yet, until it has to depart from you. Walking through the valley of the shadow of death (Psalm 23)… None of you have done it, with lil lightweight fear… 
  56. 1:45:15 JLP: When it tells you: Go to the party, stay home. “Take a drink.” Wait till it passes. Act consciously. Watch every thought, so you can stop thinking. There’s no time to fill-in. 
  57. 1:48:39 JLP story: Man beat mother; she won’t apologize for giving him hell. 
  58. 1:49:00 JLP: Stay at the gate, and watch
  59. 1:49:47 Feedback… 
  60. 1:51:45 Doug/JLP: Every human being has fear
  61. 1:52:00 Christians wait for the rapture, like Jews waiting for the Messiah; the Lord is already here. 
  62. 1:54:08 Closing: Pray and watch the thoughts (you don’t even know you have)
