[ lori ] when i see that, i get emotional, because that's not me. it's not me. this is me, living my life, being there for my kids. we had kids much later in life, and i wanted to be the mom that was on the jungle gym, that was coaching their volleyball team, that was running around with them
i didn't want to be the mom anymore that said, "no, honey, i can't go swimming with you right now", you know, secretly because i'm petrified to put on a bathing suit, you know? and now i'm present for them and for me. [ marie ] no more excuses. [ applause ] ahh. okay, so, i just -- can i just hug you? yeah. are you kidding? [ laughter ] are you kidding me? because i know -- don't you feel like life has just begun? it's absolutely just begun. i love that. what about you, vanessa -- when you see you before? [ vanessa ] when i see me before, it takes me back to -- i travel a lot for work. and it is a mortifying experience to walk on a plane and somebody look at you like, "oh, don't sit next to me. don't sit next to me." at my heaviest, i was this close to having to get a seat belt extender on the plane. and it's an uncomfortable feeling feeling like you got to suck it in just to put a seat belt on. so how do you feel now when you fly? [ sighs ] [ laughter ] it feels so good.
and i put that seat belt on. and i stretch that sucker as far as it will go... [ laughter, applause ] so, i'm just like, "yh!" how about beautiful kelly? when i look at those pictures, i see a sad person. i see a person who was hiding. i see a person who was comforting myself. my husband and i lost a child in my late 20s. and i was always a thin person before. so, i turned to comfort food. and we had two more beautiful children, but i was never able to get that weight off. for 20 years, i couldn't get the weight off and i just turned to food. what do you think -- you give yourself a reason why did it. i know what loss is. i'm so sorry. thank you. sorry. and you always can find a reason to excuse yourself or to justify why you've done something. mm-hmm.
because you -- that's huge. after 20 years... -yeah. ...of being a ceain weight, what did that to you? well, it was a series of things. i couldn't do the things i wanted to do. i didn't feel like the person i really was. and i also could see it affecting my children, who are now in college. and by the way, they've improved their lifestyle. my son has actually lost 10 inches off his waist in the last year. how does that make you feel? oh, it's an amazing thing. -isn't it awesome? -yeah, it's awesome. and to hear my daughter tell me how proud she is of me, um...means everything, you know? and so, now i'm able to just enjoy life. all right, so, that's so awesome. and you need -- let's do that fun thing. should we do that? -let's do it. you know why? -tell them. -because it's so easy to forget how much the weight was that you really lost. you lose perspective on the amount of 40, 50, 65 pounds, even 10 pounds. yes. so, we have this fun thing today.

[ male announcer ] the preceding was
announcer hello and welcome to through the bible with les feldick. an oklahoma rancher and farmer, les feldick has been teaching home-style bible classes for over twenty years in iowa, oklahoma and texas. les feldick's unique style of bible teaching has made e books of the bible come to life. when les is teaching, it's so interesting that people say, 'time just seems to fly by.' and now here is les feldick. les feldick okay, again good to have everybody back and for those of you joining us on television, we just welcome your attendance in our class. and as you have written so often, you feel like you're sitting right back there and that's of course, exactly of course how we like to project it.
letters so much. even though the ministry is growing and the mail is growing, we still read every letter. either iris gets at t ememirst or i do, but we still ready every letter. and we appreciate so much your comments and your encouragement as well as of course, your financial help. because after all we do have to pay for tv time. i think a lot of people think we get it free, but we don't. we have to pay for it, so always remember that. okay, all the past programs, remember, are available on books, videotapes and audios. if you're interested in any of that you give us a call or drop us a note. okay, we're here for bible study and so we're going to go right back where we left off in galatians chapter 5 and actually, we only got to the first word or two in verse 19, and 'the works of the flesh.' the works that old adam promotes. that playground of old satan
nature, which of course, is the only nature that a lost person has. and that's why the world is so saturated with immorality, and wickedness of every sort, is because that's all they have is the old adamic nature and inow some are inhibited to a certain degree by their background and their training but they still can't get victorious over that old adam, because that takes the power of god. all right, so whether it's in the life of a believer who under a moment of weakness lets old adam, take over. or, as i think paul is dealing mostly though with the unbeliever and his lifestyle, the works of old adam are manifest. they're obvious and they are - and we covered the first one, adultery and fornication. in other words, sexual immorality. and we closed with a picture of even old
he was destitute of faith. and then of course, the one before that was ishmael and you remember that ishmael also did not have that unction to be obedient to the will of god and so even ishmael went and married an egyptian, which was contrary to what god wanted for the off sprig of abraham when he had instructed that they not marrthe canaanites. and of course, getting back to esau again, that's exactly what esau did. esau married canaanite women who were already steeped in immoralitytynd wickedness and so this is one of the first things that paul mentions. and it isn't just here, in some of his other classifications of human sins, the sexuality thing is almost always number one. all right, but now let's go into the next area, because verse 19, i think, for the most part,
uncleanness, lasciviousness' are all more or less dealing with sexual sins. but now look at verse 20, "idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, and resies." now all those can be lumped together when you get into the area of idolatry or pagan worship. now let's go all the way back to jeremiah. this is one example that i can turn to quite quickly and i think you'll appreciate what i'm trying to show, is that this too, has been plaguing the human race ever since the tower of babel at least and that is that bent to worship a false god. it's just innate in the human nature to want to follow that drawing power to worship a false god, idols
even israel, jeremiah h and i'm going to start at verse 18, honey. jeremiah 44 verse 18, and even israel, israel who had the proof of the living god, all the way back from their beginnings and they should have known better. but here they would follow after these pagan gods, and you remember that was the controversy that elijah had up on mount carmel with all the prophets of baal. and israel had been following them. but this one lays it out so distinctly as to what the results are going to be if a people or a person or a nation are going to go into the worship of false idol gods. all right jeremiah 44 verse 18, and the jews or the israelites are speaking back, and they say, "but since we left off to burn
heaven (that was one of the pagan goddesses) and to pour out drink offerings unto her. we have wanted all things and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine." they by the famine." they weren't recognizing that god was trying to deal with them. but what were they trying to say? 'the reason we're having all our problems is, is we have quit worshipping the queen of heaven.' the jews were saying that. can you imagine it? but they did. all right, verse 19, "when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, (now remember this was one of the primary goddesses of mythology).when we burned incense to the queen of heaven and poured out drink offerings unto her, we did make her cakes to worship her and poured out drink offerings unto her, without our men?" in other words, the women were the primary culprits here. verse 20, "then jeremiah said unto all the people, (to the men and the women) and to all
him that answer saying, the incense you burned in the cities of judah, and in the streets of jerusalem, you and your fathers, your kings, your princes, the people of the land, did not the lord remember." now do you see from that verse right there, how far pagan worship had penetrated the worship had penetrated the jewish or the israeli community? it wasn't just a few. it was the whole. men and women. pces of authority. kings and government people. they were all worshipping false idols and pagan gods. all right, verse 22, "so that the lord could not longer bear." he couldn't take it any more. scares you doesn't it? because i think most of you realize that america can be identified with ancient israel over and over. i'm not thfirst
see so much that god has to look down on america who was as a nation steeped in the word of god, our founding fathers based everything on the word of god. the constitution was almost you might say, biblically oriented. and now what are we seeing? a constant tearing down of all of these principals. all right, israel went through the same role. read on, verse 22, "so that the lord could no longer bear (he couldn't take it any more) because of the evil of your doings and because of the abominations which you have committed. therefore is your land a desolation and an astonishment and a curse without an inhabitant. because you have burned incense and because you have sinned against the lord and have not obeyed the voice of the lord, nor walked in his law nor his statues. therefore, is this evil happened unto you." it
worshipping the female goddesses, it was because you turned against the god of abraham, and isaac, and jacob, see? and then verse 24, "the prophet says to all the people and to all the women, hear the word of the lord. thus saith the lord of hosts." and then he goes on to say, that god is not going to continue to deal with them except in gross judgment and punishment. god won't stand for it. all right, now let's come back to galatians. fortunately we're still in the day of grace. and god is not pouring out his wrath on wicked men, but their day is coming. and we're getting closer and closer. i think the world is getting more and more aware of the trials and tribulations that are going to come upon the planet. i think all our weird weather is just a little bit of a
world has ahead of them. and i ththk there'e'no whole world, it isn't just here in oklahoma, or anyplace else,e,ut the whole world, is having a complete upset of normal weather patterns and of course, the tremendous increase in earthquakes. in fact, i have a little clipping at home that i took out of a magazine way back in the early 70's when already the incidents of earthquakes were just multiplying every year, they've been doing so every since. and i think you'd find out and you'd be shocked at how many earthquakes are taking place everyday. the press doesn't even bother with reporting it. but they're happening; except on thehe real strong ones. and so the whole planet i think, the lord is trying to warn. in fact i think in my prayer time, i just refer to it over and over, we are in the closing seconds, not minutes. not hours. i think we areren the closing seconds of this age. we
time left, i believe. well, anyway back to galatians chapter 5 and again most of these can all be lumped into that one area of false worship. "idolatry, witchcraft. (see that's associated again with the powers of satan and it's a form of worship, a form of religion.) hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies." now, israel when we just taught back in jeremiah 44, and they were trying to elevate the worship of this goddess, whichever one it was, there were too many of them to name. what was it? it was heresy. that was absolutely false. and yet they were falling for it and were so blinded that they thought
weren't doing enough to please this female goddess that they were in their problems. never entered their mind that it was god, the god of abraham who was displeased with them. that never even entered their mind. they were so steeped in idolatry and of course, we're getting there. we're getting there fast. when dilemmas can come upon our nation, oh fortunately you know, we still have a few leaders who at least call for prayer at times. and we thank god for that. but, the general population, it never entered their mind that maybe god's got something to do with this. and maybe god's trying to get our attention. never entered their mind. he is so far removed from the thinking of the majority anymore that it doesn't bother them. but all right, now let's move on. verse 21, "envyings." see now this is all tied together. justs soon as you have sexual immorality, what
envying. see? "murders." my land, how many triangles haven't ended up in a murder of one or more? it all comes together. see? "drunkenness." now i don't like to quote statistics because i never know how accurate other people are, but i have read all ready that we would obably be shocked at what the percentage of our prison inmates are because of alcoholism. it's their alcohol that got them in trouble. now of course, we've got the drug culture that fds in as well, but all of these things and again, i may have put it on the program way, way back. but i'll never forget when i was visiting with a group of young medical interns and of course at that time interns just barely had ough to buy their toothpaste. and they were
$25.00 a month. and i'll never forget, one of those young interns made the statement, he says, fellows, let's face it. there's really only one place to make a lot of money. and one of the guys says, what's that? and he said, anything that will degrade society. and i've never forgotten the statement. now you think about it. anything that degrades society will create wealth for those people. it's just one of the facts of life. all right, and that's what paul is bringing out here. these people thre on these wicked activities. the "envying, the murders, the drunkenness, the reveling." now what does reveling imply? what do they think they're having? good time. isn't that right? oh they think they're having a good time and for the moment, maybe they are. but oh, listen what does it invariably lead to? just
misery, it leads to broken homes, it leads to broken health, it leads to just about anything you can think of that will break them and yet, they continue on in this lifestyle of the old adam, which remember, i've said over and over now today. it's the playground of satan himself. all right, and so they have "revelings and such like of the which (paul says,) i tell you before as i've told you in times past, those people will not inherit the kingdom of god." let's go back again to romans because of course, galatians and romans fit hand and glove anyway. so, i guess it's only natural that i keep coming back to romans. but again, come back to romans chter 1 where paul for the first time in the chronological order, not the chronological but the biblical order of his letters, begins to lay out
nature. all right, let's come on downo verse 29. well, verse 28. romans 1 verse 28, "and as they even did not like to retain god in their knowledge." almost identical with what i said a moment ago, isn't it? they have no concept of the things of god. they have no concept of eternity. they're just living for the here and the now. all right, look what he says again. "they did not like to retain god in their knowledge and so god gave them over to a reprobate mind." he says, in other words, if that's the way you want to life, then have at it. and that reprobate mind then causes them "to do things which are not convenient, (or they're not normal, or not natural.)" now verse 29. look at the
right with galatians 5. "they are filled with all unrighteousness." now what's unrighteousness? well, it's an opposite of righteousness. and what's righteousness? the opposite of all these things, see? all right, so "they are filled with all unrighteousness (and here again is the word, what's at the top of the list? sexual immorality) fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; they're full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity, whispers." boy, now this isn't pretty is it? no, we'd rather skip verses like this. but listen this exposes that true sin nature of man. now granted the vast majority of people, by inhibition and training are able to keep these things under control. but, when they lose control what happens? any of these, and our newspapers are full
become despiteful (verse 30) backbiters, haters of god, boasters, inventors of evil things." boy now that reminds me of something. keep your hand in romans, come all the way back to gesis. all the way back to genesis. genesis chapter 6 verse 5. and as you read this for goodness sakes, remember what did the lord jesus himself say about the days of noah? 'as it was in e days of noah, so shall it be at the coming of the son of man.' and again, all you have to do is look you have to do is look around you. read your paper. listen to your news.
"and god saw (now this is st before the flood remember).and god saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that (now here's the part i wanted you to see).and that every imagination of the thought of his heart was only evil continually." does that tell you something? that's all they could think about. all that they could think about was that which was unrighteous. and we're getting there fast. all right, verse 6, "and it repented (or made the lord sorry) that he had made man on the earth." and then come downo verse 11 and 12, "and the earth was corrupt before god and it was filled with violence. (verse 12.) and god looked upon the earth and behold
had corrupted his way upon the earth and so god said, the end of all flesh has come before me for (or because) the earth is fied with violence. and behold, god says, i will destroy them with the earth." well, now that's what led up to the noah flood. but we're also now approaching the same kind of a judgment when god will pour out his wrath and vexation on christ-rejecting men in what we call the final seven years of tribulation. all right, now another place where paul lists all of these deeds of the ungodly of course is in romans chapter 3. come back there a moment. now i hate to deal with negatives and it's almost depressing i know, but on the other hand we have to realize what we are seeing in the world around us. and listen, it's not limited to america. i've alwaygiven america credit; we're still better
world. but, it's worldwide; this whole idea of wickedness and unrighteousness is not limited to the western hemisphere whatsoever. all right, romans chapter 3, i almost have to read 12 in order to get the preview. "they are all (the whole human race outside of salvation) are gone out of the way. they are together become unprofitable (that is to god). there is none who doeth good, no not one." and now look at the picture. and of course, when we taught romans, what did i say? this is where we were. this is where everyone of us as believers were in god's eyes, when we were still yet sinners. and someone called just this morning, just before we left for tulsa. les, he said, the thing that got my attention when you presented the gospel was that you pointed out that we have to recognize that
repeating it. keep repeating it! all right, now this is the perfect picture. this is what god saw when he looked at our potential. now it doesn't mean that we've all done these things, but potentially we could have all been guilty of it. "our throats an open sepulcher, with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps (of serpents) is under their lips. their mouth full of cursing and bitterness. their feet swift to shed blood." do you remember at the flood, violence filled the earth? "destruction and misery are in their ways. the way of peace they have not known." now look at verse 18, doesn't that say it all? "there is no fear of god before their eyes." now that's the world in general. they don't even give god five-minutes of their time. see? "there is no fear of god before
let's come back to galatian 5 for juom a few ments, our time is gone. back to verse 21. and so, "envyings and murders." see just exactly like the human race was living before the flood and i think it's in matthew 24, i don't know if i should take a chance on it or not. i guess i will, i'll take a chance. if i don't find it, well the television audience will just have to bear with me and realize that sometimes i do these things without having made a note to make sure that where it is. but, yeah, it's in matthew 24. matthew 24 and dropping all the way down to verse 37. because i want you to see it with your own eyes. it's not something that i've cooked up, but it's in your bible as well as mine. matthew 24, jesus is speaking, now remember he was god. he was the creator. he knows the end
exactly what was coming on the earth. and so he says it explicitly. matthew 24 verse 37, "but as the days of noah were, so shall also the coming of the son of man be. for as in the days that were before the flood, they were eating and drinking and marrying and giving in marriage." now stop a minute. there's nothing wrong with that is there? no. there's nothing wrong with your daily supply of food and drink. there's nothing wrong with marrying and weddings and starting families. so that wasn't the problem. it doesn't show it as that which brought god's wrath upon them, but they were so occupied with all of these human mundane events that, they did it until the day
ark. and now verse 39, "and knew not until the flood came and took them all away." but, now you have to compare the lord's statement, 'that they were so busy with their daily materialistic activities of eating and drinking and marrying' d then i think in luke 21 it even adds, 'and they builded.' well, every time we drive someplace, that's the first thing that iris and i notice is all the activity of construction and building of whatever, office buildings, homes, highways. and that's why i just can't quite reckon the y2k thing as being the thing that's going to stop the world january 1, 2000, because that wouldn't fit with all this. the bible says that at the coming of christ, and i think especially for us who look for the rapture, there is going to be such a world
we're seeing it. and people are so caught up in this today; this is why you can't get them interested in spiritu things. hey, they've got it too good. they're making big bucks. the stock market is roaring and who's got time for eternity. and so that's why i have to feel that the world is not going to collapse january 1. now i'm not going to pooh-pooh the idea. i'm not going to ridicule that it's of no account, but it just doesn't seem to fit that the world n be in the situation that jesus described so far as their materialistic bent and their wicked activity, which of course, they couldn't do if they couldn't be mobile, they can't travel, they won't have all this opportunity for the sinfulness that we saw. so, i have to feel in my own mind that up until at least the mid-point of the tribulation, that's when the sky is going to
everything is going to go into a chaotic condition. no doubt about it. but, i can foresee nothing that the world is going to fall apart, that the world is going to stop all their materialistic activity before the lord comes. and so keep these things in mind that genesis tells us 'the world was filled with violence.' all they could conceive of was things that were iniquitous and wicked. but at the same time they were doing all the things that are part and parcel of everyday living. ty were eating, , ey were drinking, they were marrying, they were giving in marriage. and so that's the way we can indicate that the time is short. the lord's coming is seconds away in the view of the whole time period. announcer thank you for watching through the bible with les feldick, if you would like more information about the les feldick ministries,

[all cheering] - what a blast, especially on the hills. [shouts] there's gripman lem. he uses that big lever to grip on to the moving cable to make the car go. it's also his job to release the car fromhe cable at just the right time so it stops where it's supposed to. since cable cars don't have a steering wheel like a regular car does, they need help turning around to go back where they came from. well, that's where the turntable comes in. it's how the hardworking crew from the san francisco municipal railway keeps the trains running on time.
oh, wow! - [laughs] - that was great. - gripman lem, thank you so much for the great ride today. - anyte. - oh, wow. - had lots of fun. - that was awesome.

[bell jangles] [wind howling] huh. whoa. hey, rich. - [grunting] hi, bob. - looks like you're sure dressed for the weather. is it really that cold outside? - you can never be too careful, bob. it's a good thing i know a thing or two about surviving with hypothermometerism. - rich, i'm pretty sure you mean hypothermia.
with this extreme weather we're having. always make sure you wear your mittens and your hat. - well, that is a very good plan. - uh-huh. you especially need to dress like this when you are a dog musher and when you're competing in a dogsled race! [brass fanfare] - oh, wow! you're a dog musher now? - yup. - but wait a minute. - what? - i thought that you were a champion water-skier. - i was, bob, but the lake froze over. dogsled racing fits better with the weather these days. but i do have one teensy problem. - what's that, rich? - no dogs for my dogsled team. i've been practicing all week, and without dogs, well, it's-- uh, well, i guess it's actually kind of easy. i just have trouble moving the sled anywhere. - well, that does seem like a little bit of a problem, rich. - yes, and i'm pretty sure that moving the sled is a vital part of the whole dogsled race concept. - hmm. to do? [bells clanging] holy smokestacks! i think there's a train coming!
look out, rich! [train whistle blowing] wow! that train shook the whole clubhouse! you know what? i think this calls for a little further investigation. hey, rich, do you want to help me suss out what kind of train that was that just passed by? - that's okay, bob. i'm a little tied up right now. i think i'm gonna stay here where it's nice and warm and toasty. - all right. well, i will be right back, dog musher rich. - see you, bob. - see you. - oh, i don't mean to sound unsympathetic, but all i really came out here for was to see if one of you two dudes knew what kind of train that was that just passed by. - that was the canadian national. it was sporting a wedge snowplow. it clears the snow and ensures a safe passage for trains of all sorts. - wow. at snowplow was amazing,
- sure was, boberino. now, if you don't mind, i'm contemplating a checker move that will revolutionize the world of winter checkers for all time! - what? [shouting] what are you doing? you ruined the game, conductor hambone. - you left me with no choice. and, what, with this weather and all? okay, i panicked, all right? i panicked! - hey, "panic" kind of sounds like "pancake." should we take a snack break? - excellent idea, my food-minded compadre. - bob, you coming? - as long as there's hot chocolate involved, i'm there. - great, hot chocolate and pancakes on bob! - [laughs] - yay! - what? [shivering] - oh, hey, bob. - hey, rich. say, don't you have to be down at your big sled dog race now? - no can do, bob. i just got off the phone with the race officials at the bobville i-rode-a-dog 5000 dogsled race, and if you don't have any dogs, they don't even let you enter. - oh, that's weird. - i know, but them's the rules. - hmm. - mm. - [humming]
what is it? disco fever? - no. we should go down to tinyland and see if blithers won't be your sled dog. - that's a great idea. do you think he'll do it? - i don't know. we should ask him. plus, i kind of want to see what they think of all this fake snow down there. - sounds like a great plan. - awesome. shall we? - we shall. - going down! [both shouting] [shivers] oh, man. uncouple my cabooses, rich. it's freezing down here! - and snowy. - oh, it's too cold. engineers, we got to go find blithers and then get back to the clubhouse. come on, rich. - okay, okay, i'm coming. - [shivering] oh, man. oh, hey, blithers. hi, finneus. - hello, bob and rich. i say, we could really use your help. - the snow has buried all the crops. - what in the name of union jack could have caused this to happen? - [chuckles] well, let's just say i might have sprinkled just the tiniest bit of snow on the train layout. - you did what?
all i've got to do is go back to the clubhouse, get rid of all of this snow, and everything will be fine. rich, please unshrinkerate us. - uh, yeah, bob. no can do. - but it's urgent, rich! we need to go back to the clubhouse, get rid of all of this snow, and the farm will be saved! - um, i think i kind of sort of maybe left the shrinkatron back there. - rich, why did you do that? - uh, so i could go like this.
