Jonah 4 (The Message)

“I Knew This Was Going to Happen!”

 1-2 Jonah was furious. He lost his temper. He yelled at God, “God! I knew it—when I was back home, I knew this was going to happen! That’s why I ran off to Tarshish! I knew you were sheer grace and mercy, not easily angered, rich in love, and ready at the drop of a hat to turn your plans of punishment into a program of forgiveness!

 3“So, God, if you won’t kill them, kill me! I’m better off dead!”

 4God said, “What do you have to be angry about?”

 5But Jonah just left. He went out of the city to the east and sat down in a sulk. He put together a makeshift shelter of leafy branches and sat there in the shade to see what would happen to the city.

 6God arranged for a broad-leafed tree to spring up. It grew over Jonah to cool him off and get him out of his angry sulk. Jonah was pleased and enjoyed the shade. Life was looking up.

 7-8But then God sent a worm. By dawn of the next day, the worm had bored into the shade tree and it withered away. The sun came up and God sent a hot, blistering wind from the east. The sun beat down on Jonah’s head and he started to faint. He prayed to die: “I’m better off dead!”

 9Then God said to Jonah, “What right do you have to get angry about this shade tree?”

   Jonah said, “Plenty of right. It’s made me angry enough to die!”

 10-11God said, “What’s this? How is it that you can change your feelings from pleasure to anger overnight about a mere shade tree that you did nothing to get? You neither planted nor watered it. It grew up one night and died the next night. So, why can’t I likewise change what I feel about Nineveh from anger to pleasure, this big city of more than 120,000 childlike people who don’t yet know right from wrong, to say nothing of all the innocent animals?”


I then play a promo for Appytimes, from my friend Tim.  Good stuff.

I then play a promo for Waffle On, the podcat with Meds and Kell.

I play some of Iron Maiden’s song “Number of the Beast” as an intro to the subject – “666 The Number of the Beast”

I was fascinated by spiritual things.  Dark things were cool to me.

I talk about the origin of Lucifer and his role in Heaven and Hell. 

We talk about Lucifer being and Archangel along with Michael and Gabriel.

We do some mythbusting.

Names:  Satan, the Devil, Lucifer, Beelzubob, The Serpent, Slug, the unholy one, etc.
Authority on who the devil is.  What do we trust?
I was fascinated by the whole idea of dark power and secret magic. 
Books on the Devil include a HUGE amount of information, but really in my opinion the only true authority on the Devil is the Bible.
Origin of the Devil.
Lucifer was an Arch Angel, there were two other Arch Angels that we know of mentioned in the Bible.  Gabriel and Michael are their names.  Each one of the Arch Angels have a specific job description and have angels under their juristiction.  
Through reading the Bible we can piece together a pretty good picture of what happened. 
Angels are eternal beings- actually all of are, but for this podcast we are talking about Lucifer.
His main job as an Arch Angel was to play music and bring honor and glory to Father God.  The Bible actually talks about the way that Lucifer was created.  It says that he had pipes, like you find in an organ, drums, and instruments and was beautifully adorned with precious stones.  His entire being was geared toward glorifying and bringing attention to God.  He was given the abilities of music, persuasion and talent to do just that.
Here is where things started going south.  No pun intended. 
The Bible says that one day he got to looking at himself-  he felt that he was something else!  He felt he was beautiful, and made a huge lap in judgement when he felt that he could do better than God was doing with Heaven. 
The Bible says that he exhalted himself above God and attempted to overthrow Heaven with a third of the Angels, most assume these were the angels under his command. No one knows how many of them there are, but most theologians believe that they are what we know as demons now.  Angels that have for a lack of better words “gone to the dark side”  🙂
We then find that Lucifer was banished by God from Heaven and was exiled to the planet Earth for a certain period of time.  He is allowed to interact with God’s creation, mankind.   Adam and Eve are warned, but do not heed the information.  Adam was told to “guard and keep garden” but he doesn’t, and that is why we have the account of the “Serpent” in the Bible, who tempts Eve to eat of the fruit she was commanded NOT to eat from.    People all blame Eve for the fall of man, but in truth, the very next verse in Genesis says that she turns to Adam and he eats too.  So they both blew it, and were taken in by the persuasion of satan.
As we read in the book of Revelation and other places in the Bible we find that he doesn’t take this well and winds up trying to wreak havoc on Earth, with emphasis on getting back at human beings for being close to God.
The bible says that he has only a certain amount of time on the Earth, and because his time is short he plans on making it miserable for people, thus the pain and suffering and godless attempts at removing Jesus from picture.
His greatest triumph, he thought, was the trickery of Adam and Eve, and the supposed killing of Jesus Christ, the son of God.
Of course he overplayed his hand.
One shot the entire human race into “sin”  and the other redeemed them from it.
He is not dumb, he is crafty with the power of deception and persuasion.  He uses the same old vices to tempt and lead people astray…. 
Money, Sex and Power–  he has specifically targeted the entertainment industry because of it’s mass appeal and worship potential.
The Devil is the ultimate sociaopath and narcisist.
We do find that in the end, according to the bible, Satan is thrown into the lake of fire, and ultimately suffers in Hell for eternity along with all those who have not recieved the gift of salvation offered through Jesus Christ.   People were never meant for hell- the bible says it was reserved for the devil and all his angels (demons) 
Here are some Biblical references to all that I talked about on the podcast.

 I play the Stryper Song

 “To Hell with the Devil”

Speak of the devil
He’s no friend of mine
To turn from him is what we have in mind

Just a liar and a thief
The word tells us so
We like to let him know
Where he can go

To hell with the devil
To hell with the devil

When things are going wrong
You know who to blame
He will always live
Up to his name

He’s never been the answer
There’s a better way
We are here to rock you
And to say…

[Repeat Chorus]

Next week I will be doing a whole podcast on Jesus called “Oh my God!”  You are going to dig it!

Thanks againg to everyone that is supporting Take Him With You.  Amy and I really appreciate you!




The time has come.  Over 19 years ago on a snowy day my son Nathan was born at Community Hospital in Aberdeen WA.  We were listening to some music I created on piano and amazed at God’s grace and love for us by giving us a son. 

I remember vividly carrying  him to the nursery for his first bath and to be measured and weighed.  As soon as the nurse took him I turned toward my mom, who was watching through the window in the hospital hall and teared up.  I went and gave her a hug and thanked her for giving me life.  Wow, I had no idea what she had gone through.

But as with all children, Nathan grew up.  Through the years I have watched him come alive with creativity and talent.  I have loved him, I have disciplined him, I have cared for him, laughed with him, cried with him, held him and I have let him go.  All Amy and I could do we did.  We certainly weren’t perfect, but we were aware of his dreams and passions- and we have loved him.

He amazed me at how smart he was.  He was able to pick up on things at an early age, he is a communicator.  When he went to Grays Harbor College he blew me away with his grades and his English skills.  I was so happy that he graduated from high school with his college AA degree, something I wished I could have done. 

It has been a very hard few years for our family.  Things have changed so much, and mostly things that were out of our control.  We have gone through some hurt, but it hasn’t kept us down. 

So now our first born embarks on indendence in a new way.  He leaves in a few hours to George Fox University in Oregon where he will get his bachelor’s degree in Cinematography and Film (something like that)  Today we finally got all his loan paperwork figured out and everything is covered for his first year.  He now gets to live the dream of learning all that he can to communicate the things he sees in his head to the world around him. 

Letting go isn’t easy, but at the same time it is a natural progression of God’s love for us.  We love Nathan very much, but it is time for him to find his way on his own.  We will always be here to support him in anyway we are able, but it will never be the same again.  We can give advice when asked, but we have to trust that everything we have taught him comes out in some way or another in the way he lives.  He is his own person and will do very well with whatever he puts his hands too. 

Now the trust factor comes into play.  Nathan was never ours to begin with.  He belongs to God.  We were entrusted with his life for a very short time in the spectrum of life.  We did our best, now we trust that God will take care of him.  Jesus has had his hand on Nathan’s life from the very beginning and I am convinced that He will be with him all through the rest of life too. 

I am thankful for the years that I got to spend with him and look forward to what he will do in the future.  I am excited to be a father in law and someday a grandfather.  Mostly I am just blessed to be Nathan’s dad. 

Nathan if  you read this-  go for it.  Be who you are my son, never stop being the person God made you to be.  You are one of the most creative, fun and loving people I know.  I am proud of you and love you.  Have the time of your life and serve God with a passion.

I love you.  Spread your wings and fly.

Jonah Chapter 3 (Message Bible)

Maybe God Will Change His Mind

 1-2 Next, God spoke to Jonah a second time: “Up on your feet and on your way to the big city of Nineveh! Preach to them. They’re in a bad way and I can’t ignore it any longer.” 3 This time Jonah started off straight for Nineveh, obeying God’s orders to the letter.

    Nineveh was a big city, very big—it took three days to walk across it.

 4 Jonah entered the city, went one day’s walk and preached, “In forty days Nineveh will be smashed.”

 5The people of Nineveh listened, and trusted God. They proclaimed a citywide fast and dressed in burlap to show their repentance. Everyone did it—rich and poor, famous and obscure, leaders and followers.

 6-9 When the message reached the king of Nineveh, he got up off his throne, threw down his royal robes, dressed in burlap, and sat down in the dirt. Then he issued a public proclamation throughout Nineveh, authorized by him and his leaders: “Not one drop of water, not one bite of food for man, woman, or animal, including your herds and flocks! Dress them all, both people and animals, in burlap, and send up a cry for help to God. Everyone must turn around, turn back from an evil life and the violent ways that stain their hands. Who knows? Maybe God will turn around and change his mind about us, quit being angry with us and let us live!”

 10 God saw what they had done, that they had turned away from their evil lives. He did change his mind about them. What he said he would do to them he didn’t do.

I finish up the podcast with a song from 90’s rockers “Novella”  and song they recorded called “I need you”


Can you see the reign
Kings of the king in another age
Can you hear the voice
Voice of the spirit call
Will you hear the noise
As thousands in a praise fall

See the wide road calling 
out for me Oh no 
Walk the narrow road
I can hear you when you try,
hear you cry

I need you Oh God
you’re everything to me
I need you deep inside
give me hope take my pride
I need you love from above
God I need you
I need you deep inside
give me hope always my guide

If you speak the word of truth
Power and glory like you never knew
Clean you’ll be free inside
Peace no need to run and hide

Per chorus
chorus repeat

Let me know what you think.

Next week we explore what the Bible says about the devil, Satan, whatever you call him.  It’s called 666 the number of the beast.    Should be intersting.  🙂

Here are the funny lyrics:

It’s Nomad
to the tune of Linda Ronstadt’s “Hurt so bad”
by Rick Moyer
Travelin’ through
Lost contact with the others too
Somethings coming at warp two

Well let me tell you that it’s, it’s Nomad
It’s acting really really bad
It’s the probe Nomad coming back again
Like M4 from Flint
Your programming it must have strayed
Roykirk didn’t program you that way

Well let me tell you that it’s, it’s Nomad
It’s acting really really bad
It’s gonna hurt Nomad, if you get your way

Why don’t you stay
let me mind meld with you today
It’s true I’m biological too
You served me before, now serve me again

I can’t let you go back to Earth
Please don’t go Nomad

Please don’t go
Please don’t go ooooo
It’s Nomad
bring Scotty back Nomad
Imperfect Nomad check your record banks for me

Oooooh oh oh oh

You’re imperfect Nomad
You know it’s really bad when Uhura must learn ABC’s
No, it’s Nomad
You see you’re just as bad



Jonah Chapter 2 (The Message Bible)

At the Bottom of the Sea

 1-9 Then Jonah prayed to his God from the belly of the fish. He prayed:

   “In trouble, deep trouble, I prayed to God.
   He answered me.
From the belly of the grave I cried, ‘Help!’
   You heard my cry.
You threw me into ocean’s depths,
   into a watery grave,
With ocean waves, ocean breakers
   crashing over me.
I said, ‘I’ve been thrown away,
   thrown out, out of your sight.
I’ll never again lay eyes
   on your Holy Temple.’
Ocean gripped me by the throat.
   The ancient Abyss grabbed me and held tight.
My head was all tangled in seaweed
   at the bottom of the sea where the mountains take root.
I was as far down as a body can go,
   and the gates were slamming shut behind me forever—
Yet you pulled me up from that grave alive,
   O God, my God!
When my life was slipping away,
   I remembered God,
And my prayer got through to you,
   made it all the way to your Holy Temple.
Those who worship hollow gods, god-frauds,
   walk away from their only true love.
But I’m worshiping you, God,
   calling out in thanksgiving!
And I’ll do what I promised I’d do!
   Salvation belongs to God!”

 10 Then God spoke to the fish, and it vomited up Jonah on the seashore.

I’ve decided to do some Senior portraits for a special deal- If you need some, or know of anyone looking for a good deal on some great pics, please send them my way.



I recently picked up my copy of “Who moved my cheese? by Spencer Johnson M.D.  I took it with me to lunch and read it all by myself.  It was great.  It made me realize how much I have a hard time handling change.  How do you handle it?

Basically we can either ignore change and whine about what is going on in our life, or we can embrace it and deal with it.  How we handle change is almost more important than the change itself. 

Change always happens. But we don’t always deal with it too well. 

In the book there are two sets of characters, some mice and some little humans.  The mice and humans come to their cheese station one day to see that no more cheese is there.  The mice, although upset, get their shoes on and go searching for new cheese.  The humans on the other hand over analyze the situation and sit in an empty room hoping for the cheese to come back.  They grow bitter and refuse to look for new cheese.  As the book progresses, we see some very interesting things happen.  Although it is a made up story it could be the story of my life when change hits me.  Sometimes I do well with change, while other times I don’t.  The longer I have been involved with my cheese, the harder it is to go look for new cheese when my source dries up.  

Can you relate?  Well, the mice had a cool little saying when they would run out of cheese.  They would say “Maze time!”  in other words, it was time to pick themselves up and quit worrying about why everything happened and simply go searching through the maze for new cheese. 

I think we as human beings can spend way to much time wondering where we went wrong, and although it is important to review our mistakes, we can often times over analyze our situation. 

In one of my favorite Star Trek episodes, “Peak Performance” Data, the android officer on the Enterprise is beaten in a computer game called “Stratogama”  He is beaten by a humanoid competitor.  He then relieves himself from duty thinking that since he did not win that he is broken in some way.  Many of the crew come to him and try and talk him back into coming back to work.  But he refuses until his Captain Picard comes in and says the following words.  “Commander, it is possible to commit no mistakes — and still lose.  That is not a weakness that is life.”

You see many times in life we go through tough stuff where our cheese is removed and many times it isn’t our fault.  We are wrong when we spend so much time dwelling on the why of the event instead of moving on to the new cheese.  

Let it go.  That is my own advice.  Let it go.  Let go, get your tennis shoes on and start searching for new cheese.  You will feel so much better!

I highly recommend reading or listening to the little book “Who moved my cheese?” by Spencer Johnson M.D.

The whole book reminds me of a wonderful scripture:
Philippians 3:14

Focused on the Goal  12-14I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.

Jonah Chapter 1

Running Away from God

1-2 One day long ago, God’s Word came to Jonah, Amittai’s son: “Up on your feet and on your way to the big city of Nineveh! Preach to them. They’re in a bad way and I can’t ignore it any longer.” 3 But Jonah got up and went the other direction to Tarshish, running away from God. He went down to the port of Joppa and found a ship headed for Tarshish. He paid the fare and went on board, joining those going to Tarshish—as far away from God as he could get.

4-6 But God sent a huge storm at sea, the waves towering.

The ship was about to break into pieces. The sailors were terrified. They called out in desperation to their gods. They threw everything they were carrying overboard to lighten the ship. Meanwhile, Jonah had gone down into the hold of the ship to take a nap. He was sound asleep. The captain came to him and said, “What’s this? Sleeping! Get up! Pray to your god! Maybe your god will see we’re in trouble and rescue us.”

7 Then the sailors said to one another, “Let’s get to the bottom of this. Let’s draw straws to identify the culprit on this ship who’s responsible for this disaster.”

So they drew straws. Jonah got the short straw.

8 Then they grilled him: “Confess. Why this disaster? What is your work? Where do you come from? What country? What family?”

9 He told them, “I’m a Hebrew. I worship God, the God of heaven who made sea and land.”

10 At that, the men were frightened, really frightened, and said, “What on earth have you done!” As Jonah talked, the sailors realized that he was running away from God.

11 They said to him, “What are we going to do with you—to get rid of this storm?” By this time the sea was wild, totally out of control.

12 Jonah said, “Throw me overboard, into the sea. Then the storm will stop. It’s all my fault. I’m the cause of the storm. Get rid of me and you’ll get rid of the storm.”

13 But no. The men tried rowing back to shore. They made no headway. The storm only got worse and worse, wild and raging.

14 Then they prayed to God, “O God! Don’t let us drown because of this man’s life, and don’t blame us for his death. You are God. Do what you think is best.”

15 They took Jonah and threw him overboard. Immediately the sea was quieted down.

16 The sailors were impressed, no longer terrified by the sea, but in awe of God. They worshiped God, offered a sacrifice, and made vows.

17 Then God assigned a huge fish to swallow Jonah. Jonah was in the fish’s belly three days and nights.

Change is always hard when our attitude isn’t good.www
We can have a victim or victor mentality.
People that change move further in life than those of us that don’t change.
There is a price to pay for being comfortable.
I talk about the book “Who Moved My Cheese” by Spencer Johnson
Highly reccomended resource.
available at Amazon, or through itunes in audio.
The basic premise– be ready to find new cheese when yours runs out. Listen for details.
Bottom line is: Change isn’t easy- it requires us to anticipate, focus and keep a good attitude–
1. Be open to change
2. Get a support group
3. Read some information on change
4. Embrace change and the benefits from it.
I end the program by playing a really cool song by Rusty West called “Hung out to dry” you will love it. I then pray for everyone.
Next week: Losing my religion- aka- don’t get religious.
