Fresh from a vacation to Greece and England, my return home brought on a whirlwind of reflections, starting with a cherished lost ring I found, originating from Israel. It's fascinating how such a small, seemingly insignificant event can trigger a chain of contemplation about weighty global issues. Tune in to hear about our upcoming discussions on these matters, from China and Russia's provocations to the West, the threat of civil unrest within Israel, to the potential construction of the prophetic Third Temple.
This episode also paves the way for exploring the heated question of Temple Mount ownership and the prophetic Third Temple in future episodes. But it's not all geopolitics and prophecy! Our book club members, Hillary, Daren, and Brian, share their insights on chapters four, five, and six of Dr. Richard Gallagher's 'Demonic Foes'. in our upcoming episode... and finally... If you'd like to join our next book club discussion, we're meeting on October 28. Meanwhile, stay connected on our Instagram page, Intelligent Design Collective. These are unique and prophetic times that we live in, and we hope our discussions can provide some illuminating insights. Stay safe, keep praying, and as always, God bless!

Welcome to the IDC Podcast. This is Aleko and I hope you're doing well. So it's been a little while since I have posted. Melanie and I took a vacation to go see family in Greece. I saw my brother, who lives in Athens, and then we went to our ancestral islands, the Ionian Islands, and we got to visit Corfu and it was absolutely beautiful. It's my first time going there. And then we went to see Melanie's family, who live in England, just north of London. So it's been a fantastic vacation. And then I got back to a flurry of work and it's been quite busy. I'm very glad to be able to sit down and just record a little bit here in this preview podcast to discuss some of the things coming up. So while we were in England, I was on a bit of a mission. We lived with my in-laws for several months as we were taking a break, transitioning between Asia For those who don't know, I lived in Asia for 10 years and moving back to the States, and so we were there for several months just kind of exploring and using their home as a base, and I left my ring my favorite ring in one of the bedrooms and I knew I was going to find it when I got there and it was a very special ring because it was a birthday gift from several years back and it was handmade in Israel. So we came back and I searched for the ring. I knew it was lost somewhere and I had this inclination that it was under the bed somewhere. And sure enough, I looked under the bed that we had stayed on and it was there and I was so happy that I found it and it was really really exciting news. And this ring from Israel that was handmade and had this really ornate design of the Ten Commandments on it, I thought it was absolutely beautiful and not that expensive. It wasn't. I don't really like lavish things like gold or whatever, it's just silver but beautifully designed. But lo and behold, I found my beautiful prize from Israel and then, within a day or two of finding it might have even been that day Israel was viciously attacked by Hamas, as I'm sure many people know. It certainly has been very harrowing news coming out of the Middle East, everything that's going on. I mean there's no shortage of conversations one could have about the current situation of Israel and Palestine, so much so that it seems frivolous to talk about anything else. I mean I had a whole list of things that I wanted to get into simulation theory, the case for Exodus, demons, you know just a number of different episodes that I really wanted to cover, diving back into science a little bit, and it seems that there are more pressing issues. I mean with China and Russia creating provocations toward the West, the Al Aqsa Mosque raising the black flag as a sign of intimidation to the Jews, and the potential for civil war within Israel, with the Muslims who have been generously allowed to live there and the Jews, which could of course, potentially lead to the destruction of the Al Aqsa Mosque and the potential rebuilding of the prophetic Third Temple. So there's a number of things I want to talk about in the upcoming podcast which I intend to record in a few days. Here. The main thing is the I suppose you would call it the ownership of the Temple Mount and to the potential Third Temple, which I think is a very fascinating topic and very poignant and relevant at this point. And I'm also going to read some of these stuff from the book club. We had actually planned on doing the book club while I was in Greece. I thought it could be kind of fun seeing as Hillary and Brian are in the UK but it didn't quite pan out. But they did record their answers and I intend to play some of their recordings and maybe discuss. I believe it's chapter three no, sorry, it's four, five, six of Dr Richard Gallagher's demonic foes. So I'll be reading their, or playing their, answers and maybe discussing some of mine. And then, if you want to join in on our book club, our next one is going to be on October 28. Let me open my calendar here. Yes, october 28, at nine o'clock Central US time. So you can send in emails with your thoughts on chapters seven and eight of Dr Richard Gallagher's demonic foes, or you could maybe even send in some digital voice files or, you know, if we could arrange it, maybe even bring you into the call, which would always be great. But for those of you who would like to email in some response, please send your responses to cosmologylife at gmailcom. That's COSMOLOGYLIFE at gmailcom. If you'd like to see other updates in the meantime, you can head over to Instagram. Our page is intelligent design collective, where I try to post tidbits there every now and again. Of course we did take a little time off, but I am posting again as often as possible and, once again, I will be gone allowing uploading the podcast at some point soon. So I pray that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy and that you yourselves are praying in this very unusual, very prophetic, very biblical time, because at this moment, there is nothing more important than communing and talking with God as much as you can. God bless.
