1 Information will be Doubling Every 12 Hours? Just How Much Data does NSA have Stored Up?
LISTEN NOW! Greg, John, and Pat discuss the key to surviving the information overload with information doubling every 12 years. Today many are passing out over the incredible amount of information in which they come in contact with on a daily basis. They continue to discuss how recent research from CBS News has proven that when the brain knows it’s being overloaded it has a built in mechanism that releases phantom pain to the body and in some known cases to the back. It has been reported during the 1900’s information doubled every 100 years now every 18 months. They continue to share how today there is so much technology that is collecting data in connection with almost everything we do. Your brain has to submit to God. They continued to discuss the NSA, National Security Agencies, facility in Utah according to “The Blaze” which stores a lot of data from all over the world such as phone conversations, texts, computer data and so much more. In terms of how much data they can actually have room to store we need to understand some of the words used for data measurement such as megabyte, gigabytes, terabyte, petabyte, and presently Exabyte. In order to get a grid for the size and sheer volume of the NSA’s storage capabilities they discus that 1 Exabyte is equivalent to the diameter of the sun. According to “The Blaze” you can fit 1.3 million earths in the sun and in terms of “suns” storage capability NSA has 5,000; conclusion they have everything. They encourage us to remember that our awareness of this reality and the fact that knowledge will increase does not have to defeat us if we understand the key to surviving this is Godly wisdom. Proverbs 4:5-6 “Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.” Get wisdom to get understanding.
The Name of Jesus: The NAME above all names
Greg, John, and Pat discuss the power of Jesus’ Name and how His name is above all names. They share about an account that took place in Acts 3:2-8 “Now a man who was lame from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts. When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us!” So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.
Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God.” Peter was able to look into the man’s true need and prayed in the glorious, beautiful, and mighty name of Jesus. They continue to discuss how many churches today would address his clothing needs and food needs and those are good and Godly but maybe they would not pray in power and in the name of our resurrected Lord. Jesus’ name has dudamis power! There is so much power in the name of Jesus evil jumps and responds to His name. They continue to discuss the regret some will have when they come to realize they had access to so much power but never used it for God’s glory. The world is suffering right now and some who call themselves believers are ashamed of the one they say they profess as their Lord and Savior. Jesus didn’t cast people out of demons he cast demons out of people. It’s never about the one praying it’s always about the name of the one they are praying to, JESUS.
Supporting Israel by Standing Together with Dugit Ministry
Greg, John, and Pat discuss supporting and standing together with Israel. They continue to discuss how VFNtv and the Daily VFNRadio program has, is, and always will stand with Israel. One is by supporting Dugit Ministry in Tel Aviv. They continue to discuss how Greg had the opportunity to pray with Avi Mizerachi and repent for how the United States has treated Israel. They also shared how they partner with and support Avi’s ministry in Israel and how recently Avi, a Messianic Jewish pastor partnered with Edward, an Arab Christian pastor; both wore t-shirts that read both in Hebrew and Arabic that there is hope as they handed out Bibles. They remind us that if we are partnering with VFNtv and the Daily VFNRadio program we are a part of this.
