This is Sam from Alaska journey podcast of our goal with the podcast was. Hope you try to find your way in this difficult world. Your chosen Truth Network podcast was starting just seconds. Enjoy it shirt but most of all, thank you for listening and choosing The Truth Podcast Network. This is good Truth Network welcome to mannitol and brought you by T8 W CM is talking and walking Christian men's ministry where they are devoted to breaking down the walls of race, challenging, and they take their God assigned as our host will Hardy and Roy Jones Junior, a black guy and a white guy we are back welcome again to and talk radio on. Will Hardy number Roy Jones Junior and you know we were talking last week Roy we was speaking to the listener and where I think we could probably go speak more to the listener again this this week because now that we've talked about a little bit in list of some things when I did my word from the street that maybe if a future segment of the show world we just go out and have a question we interview people they go so praise God. It may work in May a man so but when I think I'm coming around the my son nowon the lack of everybody got math and not metabolic so this week we would talk about born-again believers out there.

You listeners, we are not to be partial, we are impartial and we are objective in our thinking because it's so easy for us to start to drift one whale of the other and start defending a political position instead of looking at what people are saying and then will taking what they're saying and filtering that through the gospel because the gospel is absolute. The gospel is truth and if we are walking by faith as we say we are walking by faith, then we need to again let the world see differences in us because we are change people and if they don't see the difference in us versus the world should ask yourself why exactly look too much like the world they don't know the fall of Christ and that's really problematic and I gotta ask the question again. Who is your king is your king, the president is your king. Justices is your king, even the individual who are laying beside you in the bed.

If you if you make a individual your king, then that means Jesus Christ is not sitting on the throne of your life is definitely not the first priority and typically a person has several other priorities and Christ might be the fifth 06 down on that list.

So we have to be careful of that.

So my question is are we serving the king of politics. Why are you serving the King of Kings because a lot of folks out there were doing just that they were serving the king of politics and still continue searching absolute and that doesn't just go to the person sitting in the pew goes to pastors or certain particle, absolutely, absolutely. Which is really concerning. And that's one thing that you not continue to question whatever one-on-one conversations what is it look like to be a follower of Christ and folks, we've got to be different and we've seen over the last tens of tens to 5200 years that we just continually slow fade onto a complete slow fade right in word there's not much difference to the general public between a believer and nonbeliever. Listen to what the Lord says in Isaiah 55, 139. Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts let him return to the Lord and he will have mercy on him and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. I we looking for a presidential pardon, or are we looking for God's pardon and I just want to throw it out there while I'm reading while my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor your ways my ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. That's when you get the Millie sings and something happens. It totally makes no sense. But for phone Christ doesn't need to make sense, because when we get through that journey through that storm. It's going to make sense. You have talked about this in the past will leave the through personal journey is ways are ways, but when you in the middle of the storm. You can't quite understand what it's all about when you get to the other side, you realize that he had complete control through the storm and the question is though is are we willing to go through the storm to see what God does have for us.

On the upside, most people these days I would say no to convoke a good they can avoid the tempering they're going avoid the tempering because see again we're letting the natural processes precede the supernatural were putting the natural in front of us because we are receiving things through the eye gate ear gate and so all of these gates are open.

We're letting this information come in and what it's doing its diluting down the, the word of God because we're letting those other things have present so true, so very true. If you're listening today.

Ask yourself that does my life would more like the world is it look more like a follower of Christ and see when when God say my thoughts are not your thoughts, see that that's in, and always because it it is so easy for us to fall into the pit of the enemy and see the enemy has a lot of years on all of us. He he he has the ability to do and put in front of us, those things that are enticing to us because he watches he not know the future.

He can't predict the future but he knows what's coming for him and he knows what's coming for his lesions that followed him when he was cast or cast out of heaven. So when when God says, my thoughts are not your thoughts. That means you, we cannot think like we used to anymore and when you do, then you allow yourself to be pulled back into the the quagmire. If you will and and will being pulled under by this and so we start to go along with the world.

Start listening to all these things are unhealthy will move from seniors listed today.

The canoe how do I keep my thought process. Clear how to learn how to stay on track. Cover description before Romans 12 right but renewing of the mind and that's what it's all about.

So if you with the amount of information overload is coming today that you have will agree with this piece that you just cannot keep it all straight. And if you're not putting equal amount of time into the word of God and prayer time in meditation and listening time for him to speak with you. How do you ever expect to get on track.

You really can't than I don't know what the average usage is today of the cell phone tablet and computer tablets gotta be in several hours a day in people between work, personal time, Facebook, Instagram, all those things the average person spends bravery little time in the work and when we do get in the word and we read what you do with it after you read it. How are you applying that to your life because reading is one thing but application is another we got to go out and do don't be a hearer of the word is James say that would be a doer of the word go out in the see the word requires you to to act on it and it it wants to act through you. The word of God wants to act through you.

It wants to fulfill its mission through you is vastly better but how will you let that happen. If you're not letting it perform what God wants to perform through you to the unsaved, and your site sitting there listening yourself we mean I don't whether perform well if you're tied up on your phone tied up worried about things you should be worried about if in the middle. Political discussions are those things were talked about before, that are not of God, then that's how it happens. That's how you missed the opportunity. That's what is a pulley down distraction gives the hook so that you don't realize your off-track and then you start showing partiality again. Instead of being impartial because it's so easy for our thought processes to slip right back into the world it that's that's a thin line so you have to you have to practice let God bless you to practice what you reading you hat you have to go out and do it in.

If you just listen and and let it sit there and and ill do nothing because you're not acting on the word you're not yielding yourself to as instruments of righteousness. Romans six and 16 you're not letting the Holy Spirit do what he wants to do so will one know the other day my wife lined up to watch this movie social dilemma on Netflix. I don't know if you seen it or not, but is now goes back to this whole thing about the. The logarithms that are being built around your search history around your viewing history that just in the background is been developed systematically is yours. Looking at material that also that starts to be what you're getting targeted with if you go up a particular line of thinking within the political influences or beliefs or desires or interest of Senate distorts that's what you start saying you don't get a balanced view of anything because now it's feeding everything that you shape this machine if you will the computer to tell the sender so that's part of the problem that were dealing with in today's society it was never dealt with before and generations earlier. It's not no longer just sitting down to read a book. If you gotten thousands of thousand things come that you based on your your criteria that you develop unknowingly yes but and also I think we have a tendency to fall back into that line of thinking is when we hear other people's remarks that we disagree with.

So immediately we want to come and we want to make that challenge and so what happens again is when we make that challenge him if the answer we don't get doesn't line up with what the person should be saying to us. Then all of a sudden we get on the defensive end and the if you're doing this on social media via Facebook or Instagram commentary. Whatever than the system. The logarithms are being built in the background by your comments by your responses. All those things are setting of triggers in the system so that it continues to feed the monster if you will, of more more distractions and more more things it got your interest or that it will get you wound up with pushbuttons and that's the if you haven't, what's that that documentary go online and watch the document is called social dilemma on Netflix and folks. If your parent if your usual telephone and you have any talk to it all get on the water to good education for to understand what's going on and then it also impacts your well-being and quite honestly it impacts your well-being because it's it's feeding things that are necessary.

Wholesome for you and the wills point could be a responses got you dandruff if you will.

Your negative response that this continues to feed behind the scene so be aware of that. Go to watch the documentary social dilemma Netflix and when I get paid to have because Netflix so when we come back we going to continue this conversation and it's it's all about not being partial, don't be partial, being impartial, the object don't be subjective. Let God bless you to know the truth so the truth can set you free. Will be back here in a moment's 10 AW CM and would love to have you join their community of men for breakfast every first and third Friday of every month and Bible discussions and fellowship at the best breakfast in town meeting location is in their gracious posterior First Christian Church in Kernersville, 1130 N.

Remember, affordable chiropractic on the W. Lexington Ave. in High Point Hall 336-885-1987. Welcome back to man talk radio, this is Roy and this is will and were talking about born-again believer. Don't be partial. Don't be partial in your thinking be objective when it comes to listening to things that have got us all up in an uproar and and pulling us back into got have a way to filter the onset of sanity check will so that sometimes comes in the form of putting manual filters on what you're looking at what you listen to the other things accountability with somebody sits and talks with you so that you can bounce the stuff off of when you when you're if you ever doubt you pick up phone call brother or sister in Christ to look this just doesn't sit right. What are your thoughts absolutely and look what Jesus said in Matthew 2531 through 46. That's a lot of reading there, but while we probably want to summarize this use of S and N segment is a result of what Jesus is saying here is, he said that there's going to come a time when the sheet are going to be separated from the goats. And then he's going to say to those on his right hand, come, ye blessed of my father, inherit the kingdom and then he's going to say to those on his left.

Apart from me, for I never knew you. And then he is going to say full for the bless the ones who did it. He said I was hungry you gave me food, I was thirsty, you gave me drink, I was a stranger, you took me and I was naked you closed clothes me I was sick, he visited me, I was in prison and you came to see me and then Jesus answered, you know, then the people answered the righteous answered when doing all these things when we do we give you drink with Chloe. We visited in hospital in prison and all these things, and Jesus said if you did it unto the least of these my brethren noticed my brother in you did it on to me in the beautiful. It is and see. So what are we doing to each other when we get into these conversations into the political weeds that God wants to us to be pulled from. We have to listen to what is being said regardless of who it is. Listen to what's being said take whatever is being said filter that through the Scriptures and don't formulate your own opinion about a matter just because you disagree with that. There's going to be people who disagree with things that we say regarding the word of God.

But does that change the word got really nodded off. It doesn't change at all. You want to come to mind will talk about the redundant least these redundant of the know everyone is for listen on the Sunday afternoons is going past someone standing on the corner. This homeless that said, it does have food and what you and I know resealing the panhandlers on just about every corner that any major intersection.

One thing only just discovered him hard to read through this.

Those who were most of my hungry yet and granted some of the controlled substance government work situation somewhat uncontrollable things that happen tonight so just encourage you to listen today to take a moment's thought is that five dollars and seven dollars and $10 is going to Holland for that person and don't stand judging the person you are and pray about as important as intersection.

God wants you to do something, to do something and open your eyes and be be the feet of Christ to the person standing on the corner. A band be led by God knows what he said. Roy and second Timothy two and nine if you got that you want to read what he says there second Peter sums a second is out of oil sit on my list to second Peter 29 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment. So you you say listener you say how can I be delivered or how can I change my thinking when my thinking is a certain way.

Well, it says it right here.

The Lord knows how to deliver you out of your temptations it says it right here so so you have to believe that whatever it is you're going through that God has the ability to take you not only through it but also to bless you. Once you go through it.

On the other side with whatever blessings you have waiting for you and we don't know what those blessings are until we go through it and he'll never show us what the bless exist until we go through it, look, look at the life of a joke that's a prime example Joe had to go through all of the suffering that he went through and endure all of that, even his three or four friends that he had their so-called friends. I would say but but all those individual India once he got to the other side. God gave him blessing upon blessing upon blessing and and restored to him everything that he had not some and see again went with Joe. It was material but we not talk we don't have to talk about material as the blessing it could be that you need more wisdom in order and and that's a blessing. So how Vermont to get that. However, if I don't know that God has the ability to deliver me, deliver me out of temptation and if I'm saying I'm godly then you qualify as an individual who God want to deliver out of temptation. Laura feel like I'm on a roll now. I just so so. Second Peter chapter 2 and two 2122 for a little bit better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them, but is happened to them according to the true fraud proverb, a dog returns to his own vomit in the cell having washed, to her wallowing in the mire. Roy don't return to be the dog returning to the vomit.

The vomit is the pollution the partiality of the world see here Israel Saints is right here don't return to that which God have delivered you from this because you covered by the book doesn't give you the right to stay in the mind, absolutely. And it's so easy to go back to it because God said you can go back there if if if you allow yourself to remain out there continue with this line of thinking that you have and you never be delivered from that then where does that put you in the body of Christ, then you're just like everybody else like you made a commitment to not turned away from absolutely exclude leads us into the next Scripture.

Second Corinthians 517 therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation old things have passed away.

Behold all things, behold all things have become the code as beautiful and if you're sitting here listening and made a commitment for Christ in all things have become new. After decision, then you need to ask God help you with listings or if your thinking hasn't changed and you still thinking the same way then you have to look at yourself and say am I a truly a new creation because if you keep going back doing the same sin over and over and over and over and over and over again I have to ask the question, have you truly allow God to deliver you from that. Or are you harboring that because that's your quote unquote secret sin or rationalized Saints convince you rationalize it it's okay because you're covered by the blood. A man and you're not. You're not that snotty rationalize it. You should not you're covered by the blood but you have to repent and turn away from it back to earlier Scripture you know he knows how to deliver us out of out of the temptation. So if you're if you struggle something dentist you need to immediately take that thought captive to the Lord and just turn it over to him. A man and and first Corinthians 2 and 12. He says that we have not received the spirit of the world, but we have received the spirit which is of Christ, that we might know the things that are freely given to us of Christ. And if you've accepted Christ in the tip of the Holy Spirit resides in you and your temple the Holy Spirit as I so so why are we going to put the Holy Spirit through things that he has delivered us from or wants up to deliver us from and was still holding onto these things were still talking about the things that we should be freed from and again it's the over and over and over McKesson. What is it due to Holy Spirit will and if I as a believer green for those grieve the Holy Spirit exactly that's well, God knew that do not grieve those. Absolutely that's a and that's that's the reality of it right is no different than a loved one with the hosted dwelling in you picture standing beside the loved one is doing something to hurt that loved one writing from with posters you residing in you and as you do these things in your committing sin.

Your grieving the Holy Spirit and you say well you know that's that's easy to say but hard to do know it's not hard to do. It's not hard to do if we understand that we are new creation in Christ.

So our talk about this, grieve the Holy Spirit guides, heart.

This is taught this a black man in white missing or talking fearlessness program will challenge you to look at a person that looks different, you list differently new speaks different than he walks different than you and create a relationship and love. The love that person about your black-white doesn't matter whatever your ethnicity is for your background or history you need to be changing and being a follower of Christ, which means loving your neighbor as yourself and doing things differently than the world's doing, and that's what were this shows all about is breaking down the walls showing how to love each other right will absolutely and you know it so easy for us to just get into trivial matters and we we let the smallest things become mountains, a man and we need to let them remain molehills instead of mountains but but we take the smallest of things. And if someone quote unquote offend us. Now we are ready to jump down their throat and say why did you say this to me. Why did you do this to see if you're walking in the spirit and in if the enemy in the in the person who who is saying these things are yielding yourself to the enemy, then we need to understand. It's the enemy working through them and not that in the choicest images created from absolutely nothing.

Again he want to pull your side right into your foreign you should be forgiving because Christ forgave us God doesn't give us God calls persons right covered all the sins but if you don't forgive your brother, then you're no different than the world's right don't be overcome evil, but overcome evil with good choice as the word of God. Romans exactly right will send funds. We've enjoyed being with you.
