This Baked Bible Story is less about sleeping with the lions (we prefer bears) and more about corrupt politics written to disenfranchise and persecute. Sadly, the theme of laws targeting people for being their true selves is still happening. Join us while we bible wonder and admire coming out of the lion’s den intact and with dignity.
If you want to check out the best worst movie idea ever, we reference ROAR in today’s show.
To see the campaign referenced in our praise report from Susannah, check it out here.
Yass, Jesus! is hosted by Danny Franzese and Azariah Southworth. Our producers are Ross Murray and Meredith Paulley. Sound, music, and post-production by Chris Heckman. Special thanks to Sophie Serrano and Sam Isfan.
Yass, Jesus! is brought to you by Audity. Audity execs are Ryann Lauckner, Steve Michaels, and Jessica Bustillos.
Get to know us better:
Daniel: [00:00:00] Hello, Kings and Queens and in-between sinner saints. I don't know if I is or I ain't. Welcome to another lionizing episode of Yass Jesus. I'm Daniel Franzese and as always, I'm here with my big pussy best friend.
Azariah: Rawrrrr, Meow, Azariah Southworth.
Daniel: And don't worry kiddies, cause here at Yass Jesus, we believe that man caves are biblical.
Azariah: And you can spend a night in a lion's den and yet emerge totally intact. It's fine.
Daniel: You, you better not be lying.
Daniel: Love that. Perfect. So don't worry about it. Just sit down and the pew, pew pews and you're gonna learn all today about Danny's lion's den. That's all right. The story I've been hearing ever since my birth. And now it's your turn to hear it. So, um, here we go. We'll be there right after a little bit of [newswire beeping noise] Gay Christian News.
Azariah: Okay. We've all heard the news, I think. Bob Saget, best known as Danny Tanner, the [00:01:00] single dad of full house has passed away. Um, and he wasn't gay. So all of you, out there, Danny, um, I'm sorry to crush your dreams there, but, um-
Daniel: Yeah Bob Saget was not on that list, but I do, I did love him. I mean, he was a hot dad, he was a hot dad on that show.
Azariah: He was, and although he's not gay and he's not even Christian he's Jewish, he still fits our gay Christian news segment here. Um, so here's where it all comes together. Okay. Bob Saget was in a really creepy Broadway show called 'H to God'. And he played, he played the minister there. So that's how he ties in. He played a minister in this really creepy show called 'Hand to God', and it was such a disturbing show, um, they had a demonic hand puppet that was attached to a kid in the church basement and the minister, played by Bob [00:02:00] Saget, was dating the mom of the main character and he was trying to be a good pastor and trying to flirt in a really tragic way that straight guys, especially religious straight guys, tend to do.
Daniel: Oh, if nothing else, this is also the show where an audience member got up from the audience and went onto the stage to try to plug his cell phone in, into like one of the fake outlets on the set to charge his phone during the show.
Azariah: Yeah, those aren't...no, there's no juice in there. That was me. I admit it.
Daniel: Um, but, well, we're gonna miss Bob Saget for sure.
Azariah: Sad news for sure.
Daniel: Uh, definitely Betty White and all the, you know, it's so hard when we lose pop cultural icons, I think because not only do we love them for all the work that they've done, but also it just reminds you about mortality because when you're, when you're young, especially in your watching stars, you always think they're going to live forever.
Azariah: Did you hear about Daniel Franzese??
Daniel: What about him? What about him is [00:03:00] living?
Azariah: Cultural pop icons, I don't know. Amen.
Daniel: Um, so that segue will take us to the praise report, and the prayer request. This is the portion of our show where we have a little something extra that you want to add to our prayer list and our listeners' prayer list. And you can request that... with a prayer request. And if you have a little something that you want a praise report, a little testimony, something that you just want to hallelujah about and let everybody know the good news, uh, then let us know and we will magnify that for you with our praise report. But we're going to start this one out with a prayer request, Azzie.
Azariah: Um, pray that I, uh, for my sense of humor, um, that's one, but the real prayer request is this: that our families both had COVID, but we're able to get through it and they are healthy again. So that's a prayer and praise. My prayer request is I talked to my dad, cause he's, you know, in his late seventies and had pneumonia and got COVID and I was really nervous for him. But [00:04:00] he's fine now, but he got the infusion that a lot of people talk about and he started going off on he's like Azariah, did you know, if you take that, uh, you take that, uh, vaccination, it decreases your immune system by 400%? And then, you know, and then by the, you have 45% more chance to get COVID if you get it... just quoting these false, this misinformation, right? And I was like, where'd you hear this from dad? And he goes, well, I heard it on YouTube.
And I was like, Okay. Um, anybody can say anything that they want on YouTube. And he goes, well, it was a doctor. I'm like, okay, that doesn't really mean anything. He was like, well, he was at a school board and I was like, I was like, school boards are often public meetings. Anybody can go there and say whatever they want.
So I remain prayerful for my family that they'll continue to use caution and wisdom to stay safe and that our families will continue to stay safe.
Daniel: You know, I think we went through a really tough time. We had to cancel Christmas, um, at one point [00:05:00] to just like, just be graphic and be honest, like my mother was vomiting and gasping for air in between each, like it was wretched.
It was like horrible to watch and a really difficult thing to be a part of. I mean, I was staying up all night and making sure she was okay. There was touch and go she was gonna have to go to the hospital for all. My dad had a touch of pneumonia and also went to the emergency room and they're not even together or living together. It was just like everybody in the family was getting it and it was a really tough time. My mom had it for like 18 days until she started testing negative. It was just a rough thing because she's also, her immune system was compromised from an operation or whatever, but we also have an anti-vaxxer in the family and, you know, everyone's got one, you know, and it was like this huge thing where I found myself having to take the position of the anti-vaxxer in order to come to make peace, you know, um... my mom who is a devout Christian and sometimes leans a little bit too that way, to some of the Christians that we talk about sometimes on the show.
[00:06:00] But, um, I was like, mom, if it was a microchip, would you take it? You know? Cause they're all waiting for that microchip moment, you know, that the end of the world's coming... I'm not during the microchip. I don't even know where it says microchip in the Bible, but we should probably talk about that in a future episode.
But like, you know, cause I heard that Elon Musk actually was trying to like, fund development of this microchip that can actually help people at school with scoliosis and other things to help, um, adjust things in the brain to heal spinal injuries and I mean, there's probably be like major medical advancements that are ahead of us that are going to include technology within the body.
I mean, there's like nanobots, you know, like, and all these other things that they're talking about. And I don't like as Christians even, I don't think that people should be terrified of ways to help us grow with science and technology. So this was a great thing that I brought up, you know, cause it was just like something that kind of like shut everybody up for a minute.
And they were like, well, that's true. Like I was playing devil's advocate for the other [00:07:00] side. Cause I think everyone should be vaccinated and everyone should do everything they can to keep everyone else safe. It's almost selfish not to. That's my personal opinion. And so I was still trying to keep the peace and, but you know, this was a trying time.
It was a trying time emotionally. It was very sad. I mean, we have a 91 year old Nana, that thank God is still with us. She's our prayer warrior. And we had to cancel Christmas and she cried. She couldn't come to Christmas. It was sad. You know, we're actually going to have her over this week. Um, in January to kind of like make up for the time or whatever, but it was just... thank God.
I mean, my praise report is that this didn't happen a week later. Just one shift in the week and all of us being sick during the holiday, we could have really compromised a lot of relatives who have had heart surgeries and cancer in the past. And my Nana who's 91 and everything else, we were able to all handle it.
And my mom did. She's bounced back. She's much better now, you know, now she has the antibodies, you know, so we're, um, she's like. But we're all excited about, you know, waiting a little bit and then getting that booster. Cause it's just [00:08:00] like, damn, but for all the people who, you know, are going through this, it is tough and it seems bleak and try to, you know... I pray for you that you can keep your spirits up and your mental health together while you're also working on your physical health.
Because while you can get infusions and you can take a Z-Pak and you can get rest and all these other things you can do for your health, your mental health is really important too in keeping it together during all that time. So we'll definitely be praying for all of you. You know, we are very blessed and we know that so many other people have suffered.
So this is just another prayer to just end COVID and it's mutations and variants. And it's a prayer for people to get vaccinated, wear masks and be able to social distance for sure. Um, and well we have a praise report as well. Um, this comes from Susanna. Susanna says I am a transgender Christian woman, and I had just completed my legal name change.
Congratulations. Um, and then this happened- I was filmed, uh, several weeks ago for a video for Sephora's 'We Belong to [00:09:00] Something Beautiful' series on Instagram, and now it's live. The video is titled Susanna and Kendra's story. As of my writing, the video has over 70,000 views. Congratulations again, uh, during the, uh, interview time, the interviewer said she could tell that my writing slash storytelling background, she was evident in all my answers, and I'm still amazed that this actually happened.
Many people have already viewed it and they're passing it along to their own connections. And on top of that one person that I connected with on LinkedIn recently has now posted the video on LinkedIn through one of his comments. So what a blessing that is, uh, congratulations, uh, Susanna on, um, finally getting...I know that that name change is so important to so many trans folks.
And we really are always filled with such joy when we hear that our siblings are finally being able to like live their truth out in the open, um, as who they are. So congratulations on that and praise God . Azzy, you that's some good news there, right?
Azariah: Yes, we [00:10:00] praise!
Daniel: Speaking of the good news, stay tuned. Cause right after this, we'll be right back with the scripture of the day.
Okay Azzie, once I get this pizza out of my mouth, it's time for this scripture of the day[repeat 3x] soul food that's right. It is soul food, and it comes from me. No, it comes from Daniel, the book of Daniel. Azzie, tell us all about it.
Azariah: From the book of Daniel chapter six, verse 22, my God sent his angel and shut the lion's mouths so that they would not hurt me because I was found blameless before him. And also before you, I have done no wrong. Wow. You guys, have you ever been in a dark enclosed space with lions who might tear your apart from limb to limb and devour you? Just asking? No, but I have been in a few dark spaces with some bears that might have torn me from limb to limb..[00:11:00]
Daniel: I think I've seen that happen at a few parties we've been to, um, you know, I was actually on a cruise ship with bears, otters, wolves, silver foxes, and daddies, and that wasn't so bad.
Azariah: And I didn't get an invite. What a good friend!
Daniel: Well, I was afraid they'd tear you limb to limb.
Azariah: I wasn't, well, today we are going to get into a story of political intrigue, one of corrupt politicians, writing laws that will persecute and disenfranchise people.
And then immediately use that law to persecute...does that sound familiar?
Daniel: I do love me a political thriller. This will be much less problematic than house of cards though.
Azariah: I'm not sure if anything could be less problematic than house of cards right now.
Daniel: True. Yeah well, you know, is there a better 2022 political thriller that we should be referencing maybe?
Azariah: Yes. And we actually want to get into it and it's the story of Daniel and the lion's den.
Daniel: Oh Yass Jesus, my namesake. Now my name means 'god is my [00:12:00] judge'. And this story shows exactly why that's true. It's also a mantra that I carry with me now- who can judge me? Not you, not the industry, not politicians, not judge Judy or mama Ru, not the church...
Only God, only God can judge me. I have carried that with me my whole life. And it's the thing that's gotten me through so many different things.
Azariah: Now mother Ru may be able to, but that's for another time, but you know what? It's going to make this story so much better, Danny.
Daniel: What is that Azzie?
Azariah: Making it a baked Bible story.
Bible story. It's our favorite. It's our favorite. We love to Bible wonder.
Daniel: Yes, with a big Bible story, we light up and we open our minds just a little bit more just to make the story a little more well heightened and interesting.
Azariah: And funny.
Daniel: And [00:13:00] profound, at least in our own minds. So let's get ourselves lit up and get into it.
Azariah: Get into it, honey.
Most of the story of Daniel and the lion's den is found in the sixth chapter of the book of Daniel, but we're going to have a little bit backstory here first. So here's the tea.. Israel had been conquered by the Babylonians and the Israelites were taken into captivity. So they were living in exile, away from their country under the dictatorship of foreign king.
Daniel: Side-note- wasn't Babylon the name of a gay night club in the original grids folk.
Azariah: Yes. It sure was. Yes. It's also the name of my gay bar back home in Indiana. So Babylon. Yes. Babylon always has had a pretty homoerotic tinge to it. And there's good reason for that. The Babylonians were actually very, very sexually free, [00:14:00] much freer than we are today...
Daniel: even though it was an ancient civilization. They were pretty obsessed with sex in general. Now here's a quick history lesson.
Azariah: The Babylonians didn't see being gay as taboo and expressed it openly.
Daniel: And additionally, the people of Babylon also encourage heterosexual, anal sex as a mean of contraception.
Azariah: Okay, well, they were wrong about that. Sex was always an option and the people were good to go at any moment's notice- rooftop, temple, town, town square, my bedroom.
People were open to having sex whenever and wherever.
Daniel: Now, if you attended a simple dinner party in Babylon, you were more than likely to end up having sex with at least one person. It sounds like hell's kitchen. Uh, which now listen, would your partner pair better with a red or a white wine?
Azariah: Um, red. Here's the real ringer- chastity was considered a sin. The Babylonians believed that everyone was entitled to and should [00:15:00] have sex.
Daniel: Some people think this captivity was punishment from God for not being faithful enough.. '
Azariah: Interesting. Kind of, it sounds like Babylonians were like the antithesis of purity culture.
Anyway, Daniel is an old man ...familiar? And he's in captivity and he pulls a Joseph and interprets a really troubling vision for the king of Babylon.
Daniel: That's also a fun side story where a hand appears out of nowhere and starts writing words on the wall. And that's what Daniel interpreted.
Azariah: I thought that was going in a different direction, like a hand from behind the wall, that battle on Indiana.
I was the hand. We need to do an episode on the hand it sounds like.
Daniel: A handsy episode. Let's do it.
Azariah: Yes. So now Daniel is in the good [00:16:00] graces of the king and there are folks, other government officials who are jealous of him and jealous of the Israelites in general.. Like, why is the king treating them so well when they're supposed to be the exiles and captives? They should be living in poverty and squalor.
See so this is when we get to the lion's den part. This is the good part. Okay. Daniel has proven his worthiness of the king through honesty and hard work. He basically rises in the ranks to become one of the three presidents of the land and others have to report to him.
[horn sound] 'here comes president Daniel...'
and we know that folks don't like others, not staying in their place. Racism and xenophobia existed as much in the ancient world as it does today.
Daniel: So these other government leaders devise a plan. And in so many of these ancient empires, the king was considered a God. So the other leaders [00:17:00] wrote a law that people must pray to the king as their God for the next 30 days.
Azariah: Hmm. Here's the passage, Daniel six verse six through nine. So the presidents and satraps conspired and came to the king and said to him, oh, king Derrius live forever. All the presidents of the kingdom, the perfects and the satraps, the counselors and the governors are agreed and that the king should establish an ordinance and enforce an interdict that whoever prays to anyone divine or human for 30 days, except to you, oh, king shall be thrown into a den of lions.
Now, oh, king, establish the interdict and sign the document so that it can not be changed according to the law of the Medes and the Persians, which cannot be revoked. Therefore king [00:18:00] Derrius signed the document and interdict, interdict, not sure what that word is.
Daniel: Yes. Go, yeah, go ahead and feed the King's ego and he'll sign whatever you want. Just tell him how great he is and tell him that everyone has to constantly say, yeah, you're great. That's dictator action right there.
Azariah: I feel like the story should have been more relevant with our last President, but that window has closed. I don't know her. I don't know her. We can't make, we can't make any jokes about his ego and trying to enshrine it into law. Right? No? Okay. Well, I won't make any jokes about trying to use the law to feed it, to feed an ego.
Daniel: Like Daniel knew this law had been signed. He didn't fight the law. He didn't say anything, but he still went home and prayed to God three times a day. Daniel 6:10- Daniel knew the document had been signed. He continued to go to his house, which had windows in its upper room, open towards Jerusalem.
And he got down on his knees three times a day to pray to his God and praise him just as he had done previously. [00:19:00]
Azariah: So he wasn't working to defeat the law. He was just quietly defying it. And of course he got caught. This law was written with him specifically in mind. So they had to be watching to see if they could catch him.
And as soon as they did those tattletales ran to the king to tell on him.
Daniel: Snitches, get stitches.
Azariah: But here's the real kicker. Here's the real kicker, Danny. The king really likes Daniel. He doesn't want to have to kill Daniel. So listen to Daniel 6:14- 'when the king heard the charge, he was very much distressed. He was determined to save Daniel and until the sun went down, he made every effort to rescue him.'
Daniel: See but this raises so many questions. Okay. So did the king know if Daniel was Jewish? Did he ever realize that the law would harm one of [00:20:00] his favorite employees? Did the king ever think about the consequences of his actions before this point?
Or was it only just made clear once he was told that Daniel broke the law?
Azariah: Or was Daniel the King's power bottom? We don't know. Or Dom top. We don't know.
Daniel: We don't.
Azariah: But the King's efforts to save Daniel are shut down in Daniel 6:15- then the conspirators came to the king and said to him 'no oh king, that it is a law of the Medes and Persians that no interdict or ordinance that the king establishes can be changed.'
Daniel: But you just signed it, repeal it repeal baby.
Azariah: So the king reluctantly orders Daniel to be thrown into the lion's den. But, he also wishes him the best of luck. So, you know, it's fine. And Daniel has been pretty upfront about his faith. So when he did the interpretation for the king, Daniel gave the credit to [00:21:00] God. So the Kings good luck wish is more of a hope that God can rescue Daniel.
In Daniel 6:16-18 the king said to Daniel, may your God, whom you faithfully serve, deliver you. A stone was brought and laid on the mouth of the den and the king sealed it with his own signet. And with the signet of his Lords, so that nothing might be changed concerning Daniel. Then the king went to his palace and spent the night fasting.
No food was brought to him and sleep fled from him, sleep fled from him, darling fled.
Daniel: Um, so if this were a movie, this would be a very long montage of people sleeping, looking out of a window and worrying. So I think there'll be a wistful song playing in the background and the song would probably be nominated for an Oscar. I don't know, something like that. That's what I'm thinking right now.
Azariah: Lady Gaga would play Daniel.
Daniel: Right. Or James Corden.
Azariah: So then [00:22:00] it's the next morning. In Daniel 6:19-20- then at break of day, the king got up and hurried to the den of lions. When he came near the den where Daniel was, he cried out anxiously to Daniel, 'oh, Daniel Surfin of the living god. Has your God, whom you faithfully serve, been able to deliver you from the lions?
Daniel: This part's fascinating because the king isn't a believer. He honestly, probably still believes that he's a God himself, but he's been hoping and praying that God is going to come down to save Daniel. It really seems like his heart is turning through this whole process.
Azariah: Here's the answer from the lion's den Daniel 6: 21-22- Daniel then said to the king 'oh, king live forever. My God sent his angels and shut the lion's mouth so that they would not hurt me because I was found blameless before him. And also before you, oh, king, I have done no wrong.'
Daniel: Oh, see, Daniel is still so respectful. [00:23:00] He doesn't seem to be like blaming the king. He wishes that the king would live forever and he just says, yep. God saved me.
Azariah: So the king is happy that Daniel's still alive. And he orders him to be taken out of the lion's den and checks him out to see that he's not hurt. It turns out he wasn't hurt at all.
Daniel: What do you think the night was like in the lion's den? Were the lions really friendly with Daniel, like a bunch of kittens, just like licking them and playing around with them or did they just ignore him? Or do they try to attack, but God placed some of those like invisible shields that you see in superhero movies in front of Daniel? Did he spend the night fighting with the lions and winning? Was he like a lion wrestler? Like, well, you know?
Azariah: I hope it's like when some of those Tik TOK videos that I've seen where like the person raised to them and I haven't seen them in like five years and they're reunited with their lion, the lion comes running towards them and like hugs them in a...it was cute. I hope it was gonna be like tiger lions.
Daniel: You think it would be like tiger king with lions? My, [00:24:00] um, what would you call that? What would you call the tiger king with lions??
Azariah: What would I call the tiger king with lions, with Daniel?
Daniel: Yeah. What'd you call the movie if it wasn't tiger king with lions?
Azariah: The book of Daniel?
Daniel: Oh, God, I'm trying to get you to say lion king so I could be like, nah, forget it, you're ruining it.
Okay. I'll just try to get you to do that for like so long. Um, okay. This is a total aside, but relevant at this moment. Have you ever seen the movie Roar?
Daniel: No? Okay. The film was written by Noah Marshall and starred his real life family Tippi Hedren, Melanie Griffith, John Marshall and Jerry Marshall and the real life collection of over 150 lions, tigers, and other giant cats who were not trained at all.
The movie is about a family that ends up in a house overrun by lions. And they are their real life family pets, but it's supposed to be a thriller, except because none of the animals were trained. There was over 70 injuries among the cast crew during filming and production. None of the lions were hurt, just like every person involved was.
Anyway, I think that [00:25:00] is exactly what I imagined life was like in Daniel's lions den.
Azariah: Train your lions. That's the moral of the story.
Daniel: I think they have a lion sanctuary for movie lions that didn't, you know, so that's what it was like Tippi Hedren, like lives on like this giant sanc, like in California somewhere, it was like sanctuary of animals who were like movie animals. But anyway, we can return back to this story.
Azariah: I wonder if like the king and because Babylon was really like such a like sexual city, right? And he's living in that city and like one of the presidents, one of three presidents and like close to the king of some sorts, you know? So like, I wonder maybe if like, it was their past time that as lovers, they raised lions together and this was like, yeah, throw them into lion's den, you know?
Daniel: Like the Sigfried and Roy story.
Azariah: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It's, the Sigfried and Roy story. Anyway, but back to our story, the king [00:26:00] was very unhappy with the people who tricked him into signing his law in the first place. Daniel 6:24- the king gave a command and those who had accused Daniel were brought and thrown into the den of lions. They their children and their wives before they reached the bottom of the den of lions, overpowered them and broke all their bones and pieces.
Daniel: Ahh, paybacks a biatch.
Azariah: And the king signs, a new law that protects and honors God. Daniel 6: 26-27- let's see if I can read it correctly. 'I make a decree that in all my Royal dominion people should tremble and fear before the God of Daniel for he is the living god enduring forever. His kingdom shall never be destroyed and his dominion has no end. He delivers and he rescues. He works signs and wonders in heaven and on earth for [00:27:00] he has saved Daniel from the power of the lions.'
Daniel: Oh my God. God is trending. This is wild. You know, this story is applicable to so many things today.
Azariah: The old vice laws that outlaw being queer dressing in a gender non-conforming way or dancing with someone of the same sex. Yes, those are still really laws, uh, in parts of the U S.
Daniel: Yeah in Burbank there's a law for people who have the same sex to dance together, they just won't remove it. There's also anti transgender bills, bucking kids from playing sports or getting medical care. And it's the same thing still happening.
Azariah: Yeah. Yes. Laws designed to make it harder to vote for queer and transgender people, people of color, the elderly and students.
Daniel: Laws, holding back people with HIV laws, banning the feeding of homeless people. Yes. This is still going on in so many places around the country.
Azariah: And laws that allow people to run over peaceful protesters in their car.
Daniel: I think of a quote that Laverne Cox has said. It is revolutionary for any [00:28:00] trans person to choose to be seen and visible in a world that tells us we should not exist.
Azariah: And just by existing, just by being you, that alone is being faithful and is a revolutionary act.
Daniel: Yes, power on siblings.
Azariah: Yes, our Thai love offering charity act of good this week. We just mentioned a lot of laws that are being written to target people for being who they are. And they're still happening today, even in 2022, especially bans on transgender youth. So research to see if you have one in your state. And get involved in the efforts to protect transgender youth from laws that make them criminal.
Daniel: And also we have songs and acts of praise now. So we want to spread the love to other queer Christian music and artists, so if you're queer Christian musician and you want us to play one of your songs, just send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to where we can find an MP3 file of the song that you want us to consider.
Azariah: We have discovered so [00:29:00] many good ones too, Danny, so far I'm loving the ones that have come in. So send them please. We're loving them.
Daniel: Yes, more and more and more.. Um, and so we will end now with the closing prayer. So please bow your heads unless you're driving. Cause Jesus can't actually take the wheel. Father God, we just want to pray as a thanks for coming together here on Yass Jesus, always, it's a pleasure to be here with our community. Um, we are so grateful for the opportunity that even when we're traveling and doing things that we're still able to get together and have this fellowship. We'd like to pray for everyone who is out there living, working and sleeping in hostile places, their own lion's den of sorts. Uh, give them strength, lord. Let them know that there's places for them. Really to pray for everyone who is mourning the loss of Bob Saget and Betty white and some of the other great pop culture people that we've lost recently.
Azariah: And for everyone who is still dealing with COVID recovering, preventing, knowing what is good information and bad information. [00:30:00] Helping them stay strong physically and mentally and spiritually. And for Susanna who is getting to live her truth and get to change her name and have her story told on Sephora, we give praise for that.
Daniel: Yes, we are so grateful God. And we're so grateful for all the people who are listening right now. And we would like to wish them well and bless them as well. Amen.
Azariah: Yes. Amen.
Daniel: Yeah. Amen. Oh, thank you all so much for listening to another episode of Yass Jesus. You can find us on social media at Yass Jesus' pod or on our website yassjesuspod.com.
