They were planning a training convention for 1400 students and hundreds more investors and politicians. President Cliff Maloney's has Austin forced him to cancel. So they made plans to move to the Omni Dallas We took a bet, and we lost that that that that was that the leadership in Dallas would be competent. It would be rational. He says They got a call this week after the group had already started moving supplies and equipment that the hotel would not allow the convention. It's hard to not see this as a biased decision when the city is allowing protesters and then we slowly straight days of protest in the city of Dallas is the company managing the army made the decision, but large indoor gatherings have had to be cancelled to comply with the governor's order. Company managing the hotel says it gave a refund and offered to reschedule. Maloney says it's too close to the election.
City of Dallas Cancels Young Americans for Liberty Convention
"To to Dallas Dallas this this weekend weekend for for a a convention. convention. Organizers Organizers say say this this city city waited until the last minute to cancel over fears of covert 19.

Everybody had to stay together while they're here, and they would serve boxed lunches instead of using of a fame. He says they had already arrived with equipment, signs and materials to set up on the stage of the army. But they got the call this week they could not hold the convention. I think where we got frustrated was the city of Dallas through a bunch of curve balls at us over the last month, and we continue to adapt and comply, and even about 10 days before the event, I mean, they gave us full sign off from the fire marshal. So that's why it's frustrating. They waited till the last minute. Riding kind of giving us a heads up that the city of Dallas has management at the Omni Hotel made the decision and says they offered to postpone the convention centers to cancel it. The Omni says it did not want to hold a convention because of the pandemic, but has offered to reschedule. Young Americans for Liberty had moved the convention to Dallas when they were not a lot before in Austin and Pony says they're just gonna have to cancel instead of try to reschedule again.

A broken system, a broken city: Beirut
"In Beirut yesterday countless people began the painful work of fixing homes devastated by a massive explosion on Tuesday. One woman who'd mlk posted a video of her mother-in-law playing the piano as others swept up broken glass. The music is bittersweet, the city is reeling. The moment of the blast no one was quite sure what had happened there was a deep bass sound for seven or eight seconds there was a rumbling. and. We thought it was a localized explosion, maybe a gas main that had blown up across the street or a car bomb in the neighborhood. Greg Carlstrom is our Middle East correspondent. I A cafe. everyone, of course, left the cafe and started making their way home and it was only on the way back down towards the three Indian towards the ports that I started to realize the scale of the damage. There was, of course, broken glass everywhere carpeting, all of the streets all at the sidewalks pass through an intersection where there were several women sitting in the median holding cloth scraps of fabric bleeding from the head they'd obviously been hit by glass. And every building that you pass by not only the windows blown out but the aluminum window frames blown off. So. You realize that this was not a localized incident, but rather something that had affected the entire city center. The blast was felt as far away as Cyprus it registered as an earthquake in Jordan. It had come from the port of Beirut or something had set off an explosion of staggering size sending up a white mushroom cloud then a vast bloom of orange smoke. Yesterday the government placed a number of court officials under house arrest and again investigation. Declared a two weeks state of emergency. Residents are still coming to grips with the shock of the blast. Felt like it went inside us like a best our soul the way. I saw something bright and I lost my hearing for few seconds. An explosion just went out. The human toll of the explosion has been catastrophic the death toll officially more than one hundred so far, and that number continues to grow as rescue workers find victims who were buried in the rubble more than five thousand people injured by the blast and many of them had to go into a hospital system that was already stretched thin. We've had a spike in corona virus cases in Lebanon over the past few weeks, some hospitals themselves were damaged by the explosion hospital Saint George Hospital across the street from where I live. was so badly damaged that it had to halt operations and when I went by the hospital, you saw patients some of them still wearing their hospital gowns with intravenous lines in their arms bloodied from flying debris and shrapnel for nurses were killed. Fifteen patients on respirators died when the machines failed the other immediate impact is according to officials in Lebanon about three hundred thousand people were left homeless by the explosion. About five percent of the population of the entire country and what do we know so far about what caused the explosion? It seems to be the result of unbelievable negligence even on the scale of the perennially negligent Lebanese government back in two thousand thirteen customs officials in Lebanon confiscated the cargo of a Russian ownership that was traveling to Mozambique. The cargo was two, thousand, seven, hundred, fifty tons of ammonium nitrate, which is highly explosive chemical that is used mostly to make either fertilizers or explosives from mining and quarrying and other industrial uses. So this material was confiscated, it was put in a warehouse at the port and for six or seven years it just south there there was some talk of maybe exporting the stuff for giving it to the army to use but this required approval from the Lebanese judiciary that approval never came you've had officials at the ports and with insecurity agencies who warned this was tantamount to keeping a giant bomb on the doorstep of the country's capital. Those warnings went unheeded and of course, tragically on Tuesday it all exploded but I mean what kind of government would ignore warnings about tons and tons and tons of explosive material just sitting in a city centre the Lebanese government would it's almost par for the course for Lebanon's political class. This is the government that for more than a decade could not agree on a budget. This is the government that for almost thirty years allowed the same central banker to run the Central Bank Lubin, and to run effectively state-sanctioned Ponzi scheme to defend the currency peg it's a country that created a political and economic model that was totally unsustainable. Invested hardly at all in basic services even in good times, Lebanon can't provide twenty four hour electricity routinely struggles to pick up the trash piles up in the streets. It is a perennially negligent government and this is of course, a catastrophic example of that but it's of a piece with the behavior of this government over the past thirty years. So this is a population economy that was suffering quite a bit even before the blast it was the country has been slipping into a profound economic crisis since October the the currency. Lebanese. Pound which for decades has been pegged to the dollar. Began to break away from that since October? It's lost about eighty percent of its value on the black market which has contributed to runaway inflation in a country that imports almost everything from food and fuel to consumer goods. So, inflation running around eighty percent right now and for food around two hundred percent prices have become astronomical this summer we've had fuel shortages that have caused blackouts in Beirut normally three hours a day stretch as long as twenty hours a day this summer and the backup generators that people rely on to provide electricity when the state cannot those are either burning out from overuse or running out of fuel just one crisis after another point. which has led to widespread poverty in the country the the official figures the government thinks around half the country is now below the poverty line that could rise as high as seventy five percent. By the end of the year, there's been a spike in petty crime driven simply desperation. There was one man who was caught on TV robbing a pharmacy for diapers another man who robbed someone at knifepoint on the streets and a once busy part of town, and then came back to apologize for doing it and said, he he needed the money to his family. So it sounds a a years long problem has gotten really quite a lot worse very recently mean why hasn't the government been able to sort of keep things from getting so much worse? The current government was installed in January meant to be a technocratic government that would tackle this economic crisis and negotiate a rescue agreement with the IMF but. Six or seven months later it's made almost no progress. The negotiations with the IMF have really stalled at this point they've had about twenty rounds of talks. But is not even really negotiating with the IMF yet it's still negotiating with itself. You have the cabinet on one side. And the parliament on the other backed up by the banking sector. which are having this very arcane dispute about the scale of the losses in Lebanon's financial sector about how bankrupt the country is effectively. And so you have this surreal situation where instead of Lebanon negotiating with the IMF Lebanon is negotiating with Lebanon. The Fund has told Lebanon that talks are not going to advance unless there's an agreement on the size of the losses or if the cabinet pushes through a few meaningful reform of capital controls, law changes to the electricity sector things like that. Neither of these things have happened and there are increasing calls for the government to step down. Do you think that's the way forward I? Mean, what do you think should be done here to to bring Lebanon back to? A functional state though the problem is if this government steps down what replaces this government and a lot of the pressure on the government right now is is coming from the traditional powerbrokers in Lebanon the sectarian X. warlords who have divvied up power in this country for decades since the end of the civil war in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, this power sharing agreement they have it was designed to keep the peace and prevent a return to conflict after the war. But it's been captured by the. Hands up power based on sect, which runs a massive patronage network The World Bank estimates that it costs the country about nine percent of its GDP each year but if it were to step down without broader changes to the country's political system in this power, sharing system would simply be replaced by the same cast of characters who have ruined the country over the past thirty years. But that power sharing system was was there to to keep the peace to prevent a return to civil war, and that was the argument for years for decades when people in Lebanon would complain about the corruption and. The negligence and the inefficiency of their government, the response would be well at least this is better than a return to the bad old days even before what happened on. Tuesday even before the explosion though that argument was beginning to lose its weights with a lot of people here you have a younger generation of Lebanese who don't have the same memory of course of the civil war that their parents or their grandparents had, and so as the country slipped further and further into crisis over the past year, people have been more willing to to break away from this system than they were before. And I think the argument that well, there could be violence if the power-sharing system was stripped away after what happened on Tuesday after half of Beirut was destroyed by the incompetence of this government I think that argument is not going to carry with a lot of people.

Going old Turkey: a regional power spreads
"A decade ago, Turkey's Foreign Minister Audit of Attalou used to boast his country was on good terms with everyone police fantasia want. less confrontation, less tense attitude. Especially, in the region, he spoke at the Council on foreign, relations with the will of the principal. In. Two thousand three. Zero problems with our neighbors. And the made a huge progress. All, that now seems a distant memory Turkey is growing its international influence and not always with a light touch. The country has been backing Libya's government in its civil war. Last month. The Turkish Defence Minister landed in Libya to inspect his troops and opposition warlord warned them to get out or else. Turkey prompted an angry statement from Egypt last week by allegedly planning gas exploration and Egyptian waters. And yesterday Turkish officials railed against an American company for its dealings with ethnic Kurds in neighboring Syria. That Turkey believes to be terrorists. To some, all this adventurism is reminiscent of past chapter of the country's history when the Ottoman Empire ruled all of Syria and far beyond. Turkey, has been playing an especially prominent role in Syria since protests spread into a full blown civil war. Turkey has really become a meshed in Syria since the start of the our spring, the uprisings that took place in two thousand eleven across the Middle East it back. The Islamist. Movements that initially took to the streets and then took up arms. Nicholas Pelham is our Middle East correspondent. But as those fighters were false back towards its border, it's really stepped into try and protect its southern border, stop any more refugees coming into the country and to provide some sort of safe zone for the proteges, and it's also very nervous about the current state law that emotion the northeast of the country. It feels very threatened by the emergence of Kurdish power on the southern borders, and is it reasonable for Turkey to think that those Kurdish forces are really a threat historic? The have been links between the PK, the cuts down Workers Party, which has been waging a thirty five year a war for. Autonomy and separatism inside Turkey. Many of those fighters did flee sought refuge in Iraq and in Syria, and so Turkey is worried about what it sees very much kind of PKK influenced state emerging on its southern borders. So this year it's been launching pretty heavy attacks inside Iraq, it's been sending tanks across the border. It's established positions inside northern Iraq. It's been carrying out drone bombardments, such two hundred kilometers from its border in Saint, John More, Kurds all the way along its southern border inside Syria inside. Iraq see a new Turkish assault, which is pushing deep into their territory and not just unsettling. Kurdish aspirations for sovereignty in Iraq and Syria, and this is also unnerving Arab leaders as well. Who Turkey pushing deep into territory, which was part of the Turkish Republic predecessor. The Ottoman Empire, which ruled the Middle East centuries until its dissolution about a century ago, which is to say that Turkey is expanding its influence is doing this adventurism beyond Iraq and Syria all over the Middle East of the moment. There's a this year has seen the new intervention of the Turkish, Army. Libya. They came to the rescue of the besieged government of National Accord. In Tripoli, which has been fighting a civil war against a renegade general. Khalifa. After Turkish forces established at base on the borders of Tunisia, we're seeing it's frigates make a bid for control of looking coastline and even ward off French frigates. We're really seeing a substantive increase in Turkish. Power across the Middle East and it's not just happening in Liberia. It's happening in Gaza, which is an ally of Turkey. Turkish forces there have tried to help. Cut Break Its blockade by Saudi Arabia they're. A. Few hundred to a few thousand Turkish forces that are they're wasting more Turkish interested in Yemen civil war. We're seeing interest in a Sudanese port and actually Turkey's largest overseas basis in the point of Africa. So really this is a massive increase in Turkey spread across the middle, East and do you believe that the the the Ottoman history plays into that as a return to former glories? In some way? It's very much the in the rhetoric certainly saw Mr. Osman tropes at the at the height of the Arab spring wanted to appear to be the leader of the Muslim world. He was promoting his version of governance across the region hoping to clone the Turkish model across the Middle East. But since the collapse of Islamist movement since its as from power in Egypt and the retreat of many of its forces, he's really kind of played much more on Turkey's national interests. He's ally domestically with what had been his nationals opposition. He seems to be much more concerned on trying to maximize Turkey's economic claims in the. The Mediterranean this since much more about promoting Turkey's national interests than flying it systems colors. This is really an exercise in in hard power and trying to exploit the weakness of others, the retreat of Europe and America from the Middle East. The policies of many Arab governments, and try and push Turkey to fill what seems to be a vacuum of power across the Middle East, and so is that push to serve Turkey's national interests working is, is it benefiting from this from this expansionism? If you're trying to put together a balance sheet of profit balance sheet? Sheet Turkey has benefited from Khatri investment cutters, loans, and investments have helped prop up the Turkish lira. It may be that country's also hoping to fund part of its military costs in Libya Turkeys, keen to promote its companies when it comes to eventual reconstruction of war-torn Libya, which after all is energy rich state, and so long term, there may be benefits, his critics home highlight, the cost it's estimated that Turkish operations in Syria have cost anything up to about thirty billion dollars, and of course, there is a threat that you're going to see a major escalation. Escalation in the Middle East, which could embroil Turkey. It's not just Turkey is entering the middle, East enforce. It's also Russia. Many Arab states are trying to gain Russian support to push back Turkey, not just Syria Egypt the United Arab Emirates looking to Russian support in Libya, and Egypt is sending its tanks to the Libyan borders. The UN warned that the risk of a of a regional war focused on Libya and beyond that that risk was huge. So this is a massive gamble and it looks as if the stakes are going to be increasingly hyphen

The Alamo was just a hunter in his youth tessie was still a wilderness out one time. He supplied food through skills of hunting for an entire army. While in Congress, he opposed add Jackson's argument to relocate local Indians. Congress. Crockett became a freemason. He spent time in his entire legislative career fighting for the rights of impoverished settlers who felt dangled on the precipice of losing title to their land. Due to the states complicated system of grants. He introduced a resolution to abolish the United States Military Academy at West. Point. New.

He spoke out against Congress giving a hundred thousand dollars to the widow of Stephen Decatur citing the congress was not. Empowered to do that, he opposed Andrew Jackson Eighteen thirty Indian removal act and was the only member of the Tennessee delegation to vote against it. Chief John Ross, sent him a letter on January thirteenth eighteen, thirty one expressing his thanks for Crockett's vote is what was not popular with his own district and he was defeated in the eighteen thirty one election by William, Fitzgerald and here's a quote.

Washington, DC - Maryland family’s quarantine garden is thriving, so they’re giving away free produce
"At home during the pandemic, decided to plant a backyard garden. Things and it grew so much a lot of produce on their hands, and they're giving it away for free and trying to raise money for charity to Andrew Camilla and his 11 year old daughter.

Cry of where's the bloody air force is a wonder of a short film. In itself, the lack of dialogue works perfectly for what this movie wants to achieve with. Hans. Zimmer's relentless scored doing all the audio work that's necessary among all the chaos. There are frequent moments of grace. Kenneth. Branagh face as Commander Bolton as the cavalry arrives in the form of the civilian vessels the empathy as Peter Tells Killian Murphy's PTSD soldier. The young George will be okay and no moment more than the shot. Be Okay and no more than a shot of Tom Hardy's planes silently gliding over the beaches of dunkirk knowing his job has been done. dunkirk is also uniquely Christopher Nolan Movie One where his signature use of time has never melded together better and more cohesively than it does in the final twenty minutes of this film while Dunkirk will understandably never be a wholly enjoyable or easy rewatch. It's one that gets richer and richer with repeat viewing. Now, Adam Mention Nolan signature use of time, and that is one aspect of dunkirk among others that certainly connects to his entire body of work. But there are other aspects that Mark Dunkirk is unique. It is only film that is based on historical events, which means it is inherently rooted in the past and yet I'd argue it is only film that truly feels present tense meeting there are no. Dead parents or wives or forsaken children or other tragic events haunting the air's barrier played by Tom. Hardy the Moles Army private Tommy fiene whitehead or for the most part the sees Mr Dawson played by Mark Rylance like all Nolan protagonist there's plenty of personal sacrifices on display but no guilt no sense of futility about toning past actions just the seemingly futile need to survive the current event that they. Are Tragically experiencing here's something else that argues unique about dunkirk as we every other commentator on Dolan's work is discussed in some form or fashion for all those dead parents and wives and foresaken children. There's nothing so emotional or borderline sentimental in any of his previous films as the climax of inception and yes, mileage may vary there which led to interstellar and not only mcconaghy's crushing breakdown watching twenty three. Years Worth of miss video messages from his family but the verbalize message love is the one thing we're capable of proceeding that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that even if we can't understand it, it's hard to imagine any character in previous Christopher Nolan movies saying something like that which led to Dunkirk am I crazy josh this is his most blatantly sentimental and even heart film. And if so is that what establishes Dunkirk as his best its balance of coldness the sober portrayal of the hell of war of life in the misguided choices, some men will make when facing death with warmth. In the compassionate inspiring choices some men will make to maintain a way of life. So a lot of subtleties in that question and you're onto something so you're not crazy I think I would distinguish. The word blatantly, I. Don't think this is blatantly emotional or moving, but I do think you're onto something in the fact that it is maybe his most heartwarming in where it ends up and let me kind of try to parse those. You're right as long as the Nolan Canon has convulsing McConnell. Interstellar is going to be his most blatantly emotional I mean you can't have a scene like that without registering that on it surface. That's his most emotional movie. But I will also say that I find Dunkirk to be his most emotionally affecting movie maybe even more. So than inception, which we about how I did find that very moving especially in the character of Mal. So yet dunkirk is really a unique thing even as it's working within the strands and trends that we have been tracing in Nolan's other films, I. Think the heartwarming aspect is probably a part of that. You've nailed it there in that it brings us to a place that. Is One of Constellation and I think it's earned because I think up until that point we have just been suffering alongside all of these other characters in so many ways and we've also been recognizing as the movie does that this is You know a an account of a military failure, a huge defeat and so for the movie to kind of offer, some sort of solace at the end of that I think is. In proportion and well
"So you'll high, what was working on this piece like for you, what? Did you learn first of all I learned how difficult it is for community that so knit to separate itself all of a sudden like what valiant effort. They did to actually do that once they realize what was going on. And the price is heavy prices. They paid I learned how lockdown affects people very differently lockdown, not the same for a young couple with the one kid or a bachelor living alone or with some roommates, as it is for a mother of you know six seven thirteen kids. Another thing I learned. Is You know these people are very positive? Even when I talked to them, and I talked to remember, I talked to people who had very strong complaints. That's that's how I reached them. Even those people at the end. All of them felt it was very important to end with a positive message. Hopeful message that we can all learn to get along better and. They'll never complain. They'll say you know. It's very very hard, but So. That was really inspiring for me. Being myself stuck with three kids at home and much. Full of. Self pity. That story was produced by High May. Together with our amazing production intern Marie Huda. Ari Jacob wrote and performed the original music. We don't usually think the interviewees in our stories, but this times different since for many of them, talking to the media, especially to non Hundred d media isn't a trivial matter. So. Thank you willy. Dick Mantova Henny Judy near Hyme Teitelbaum. You the elite Menachem Tokyo Shag leak and many others who preferred to remain anonymous, a special thanks to a wicked Zana the national anti-racism coordinator for the Department of Justice, who was incredibly helpful throughout the process of putting this piece together. Before we sign off. Let's check back in with sergeant. Alex Smith the Home Front Command squad leader patrolling the streets of. His assignment like that of many other soldiers was really a bit strange. After all the deem, don't buy large. Go into the army. In fact, some of them are quite hostile towards the arm. So Alex wasn't sure how it would all go down I. Thought I would be getting things thrown at me or like getting shouted from the other side of the street stuff. Like what is the army doing? Hugh, get out of place. I can tell you that as soon as they see us coming there like and they put on the face mask or go to another place. So what do you do you go and knock on people's doors or where? How'd you? How'd you convey this information? No, we do not going to people's homes. We are going close to supermarkets to hospitals. Two clinics in how the hundred received the soldiers so far so good. We have not had any problems set. Like what are you doing you or what? Why is your army coming into a neighborhood? Not all. You're not the right I. Am not I am a secular you I I would say. And is this the first time that you've had significant interaction with with him? Yes, and say that it's nothing like I would have expected I. Not all the like for real are taking us the way we are and leading. Do what we are intending to do, which is to help them and they're cooperating. Also which I think is fantastic
Professor Mohammad Fadel Returns to Discuss the Current Political Climate
"BOCOM professor frontal a really happy to have you on I know you've been on the show in the past prior to when I joined when we had different co host, but I did over the weekend a that episode I think he was episode thirty, three, thirty, four from summer, two thousand sixteen, and I listened to it just to catch up and hear a little about Your your background and your points of view. Is a super interesting. kind of got me thinking of of all the craziness that that's happened. Since two thousand sixteen, right life has been crazy in general since maybe nine eleven you could say but We've kicked it into high gear since the trump election, and now of course everything that's going going on with the virus of macro level. But It's like I said it's been crazy year. And you explain the rise of trump through economics, and that really that really resonated with me. You were talking about how things have gotten global and whatnot, and because there's more supply and demand you talked about more more more supply of workers may be flat or left Earth's or lower demand of of of jobs in the capital, potentially for the for the lower class. things have only gotten worse right so. Do you see. Do you see that that pattern continuing and potentially leading to more and more extremism or are you? Are you hopeful? Well I mean. covid changed a lot of things. So I mean. So let me back up I. Guess Trump from the beginning. Began to charge reorient trade policies began posing lots of openly protectionist measures. And then Cova conflict celebrated that. And layer on top of that a certain kind of anti Chinese Stanton. That Kobe has reinforced. That was already pre existing. and. So now. Yeah was situation where there's a kind of broad consensus among the political class that something has to be done about China. Now it's not clear what that will mean. In terms of global trade, because the global trading system is highly dependent on Chinese purchase patient, but as you, you know just in the last few months atop has been ratcheting up the pressure on China Army Right now trae closing council it's. Posing greater greater sanctions on Chinese tech firms, etc, odds greater confrontations with China in the in the South China Sea among other things. and then coverted has caused a lot of people that make me. We need to bring back a lot of production of things back to the United States. Now I don't know how realistic that. Ambition is particularly if it's more than a few products that might be viewed as critical in the public health emergency. but the General Point that I made twenty sixteen I think about global economics remains the case today. That is of great benefit in the aggregate to the United States. Particularly United States but at the same time there are a lot of losers from globalization The trump response to bat has been to try to engage protectionism. In a in a certain sense kind of change, the terms of trade in a way that slanted the United States by imposing tariffs on trading partners now United States can get away without just an extent because the united. States has such a leading role in the global economy, no country. Wants to be excluded from the US market. So they are. Willing to go along, and there's very limited steps that they can take in the short term. To retaliate against the US, the problem is. Over the medium to long term. States wants to take that approach to global trade. It's likely that it's going to produce. Reactions, right! You might see a rise of different kind of trading bloc centered around China for example centered around Europe right in which other countries enter into our French trading relationships with each other. To protect themselves in the United States. You also see this going on with the role of the dollar. Nice, as has been very aggressive in using the role of the dollar as the world's reserve currency to impose sanctions, Willy Nilly, all over all over the world thereby effectively. Telling the rest of the world that if you want to trade with us, you can have to adopt our sanctions regimes. and so even places like the EU or trying to build out. Heyman systems that can bypass the dollar right so they can escape the kind of US stranglehold on the global, market! So our costs while twice as there are costs involved to trying to either export you use US economic our to impose its will in terms of geopolitics with the dollar or with Tariffs Charles. Trade. In order to protect US workers. There's a much easier route. which I would like to see A. Dog! And it's possible it could happen. If there's a large enough democratic featuring, remember namely we preserve the gains of the post. World War Two liberalize trading system, but combine it with a much higher level of taxation. That would allow the government to redistribute the gains from International Trade and compensate the losers. What we've had going on the United States since the Reagan Revolution is a double whammy to the working class in that. Global. Association has undermined security jobs on the one hand and I guess conservative. mark pro-market policies domestically destroyed the the welfare state internally. Right. And so. Yeah, you have cheap TV's. Education is unbelievably expensive. Helped expensive. Real estate is on XP. Unbelievably expensive right. So. The most fundamental goods are outside the reach of the average worker, even even professionals right. consumption goes are really cheap an audit it feels like the current administration is doing if you look at the two by two of of what you just laid out right like less less fairness, and Lester is redistribution, more fans, smartest redistribution, globalization versus nationalism that the current administration is going towards nationalism without fairness, and you want to go towards globalization, which is good for everybody in the long run plus Mauri, distribution and fairness. Strategy of trump and Publican party is to. Push back against globalization where the United States does not have apparently advantage by using tariffs. Right. And then imposing. Her fragile trading charms on its trading partners where it does. And then instead of we distribute Gel redistributionist policy to to. Income! WHAT THEY WANNA do is used tariffs to protect its France.
2 Kings 19 and Psalm 46, 80, 135
"Today, we revisited part of the story. We I read on Day, two. Oh, six including! HAS ACI response to Kingston Aker ABS threats. We're reminded of how humbly he responded when troubles came as way, and since we've read this story before you probably recall that after this when he's been blessed, and has stockpiled fortunes, and he gets to live an extra fifteen years, his heart Arc's away from God, it becomes prideful doubts God's words and live somewhat airless Lii. One of the things we didn't touch on home. I read this story. A few days ago was the part where God puts a spirit and snacker. That will cause him to hear ally. There are a few noteworthy things about that burst. God is in charge of evil spirits there on a leash, and they have to do what he says and go where he commands that comforting second God himself didn't mislead snacker. Scripture tells us repeatedly that God cannot lie. Bruce Sixteen eight says he's incapable of it. It would be contrary to his character because according to John. Fourteen one of his name's is the truth. Is the truth, but God's certainly does use equal for his own purposes when Romans eight twenty eight says he works all things together for the good of those who love him. Evil is included in that list of all things, the good, the bad and the ugly the truth he speaks, and the rumors other speak. So. He allows snacker up to be misled. If you think that might be an unjust response, try to zoom out and remember how sin. Acura of has been Lee bought your way and his leaders tell the people of Judah that they shouldn't let y'all way. Trick them into trusting him. This is a merciful response based on what's inaccurate. Deserves from God. Isaiah also tells has a that they will win this war without even putting gas in their horses, and he's right before a Syria can fire an aero toward Jerusalem God's Army, an army of one shows up and wins, but it isn't really a balanced fight. The Assyrians are way outnumbered by the angel of the Lord who kills one hundred and eighty, five thousand of them and one night, plus he has the home field advantage since he owns the whole earth and whatnot, then eventually, king inaccurate is assassinated just as God promised. Next! We jumped back into the psalms. There were two verses in Psalm, Forty forty-six that stood out to me in light of what we just read. Burst this reference to Jerusalem in verse five stood out. It says God is within her. She shall not be moved. God will help her. When morning dawns, this is certainly what played out over the course of the night. When the angel of the Lord showed up and won the battle for them while they were sleeping when morning dawned, they laid eyes on God's victory. The second verse I loved is the most famous one in this chapter Burston be still and know that I am God. One of the things we've seen repeated as you've been in Isaiah lately. Is this idea of quietness and rest and trust? This stillness fits right in with that, doesn't it? In Psalm Eighty the corporate cry is for God to save them and restore them. In this song Israel knows its identity and echoes it back to the God. Who gave them that identity to begin with? I love this imagery in verses eight nine? It says you brought a vine out of Egypt that vine reference to Israel the people the ones he rescued from Egypt. Then it continues saying you drove out. The nation's and planted it. You cleared the ground for it. This is a reference to Israel the place God drove out the Canaanites and planted them there, and now they've been burned up cut down plucked up and they ask God to restore them and promised to praise him for it. Someone thirty five is where my God showed up today. I really love this psalm. I went through it and circled all the action verbs where God is the subject and here's everything. God does in this chapter. Chose Jacob in Israel. Does whatever He pleases, he makes the clouds rise. It makes lightening brings forth the wind. You struck down. The Egyptians is sent. Signs wonders you struck down many nations. He killed mighty kings, then gave their land to Israel he will vindicate his people. You will have compassion on his servants E, Doyle's in Jerusalem. God does a lot of things here, and as we look back on all of them. We see his hand to bless his people. To restore and redeem the very ones who have repeatedly gone astray from him. and. He doesn't do it begrudgingly. He does it willingly joyfully. You know we know that because I six says he does whatever He pleases. It pleases God to adopt centers into his family, and call them sons and daughters. It demonstrates his great art bore redemption. You will vindicate his people. He will have compassion on his servants. It leases him. Wow, ease where the joy

"Monday. The second of April seventeen seventeen thirty nine marked a significant day in the history of Christianity and it was on that day that John Wesley finally abandoned his reticence to preach outside the church and at King's Wood in Bristol. He took to open air. Evangelism Wesley's decision Asian brought him face to face with the common people and ignited a revival. The likes of which this country has never seen before. I may never see again regarding not great day. Wesley wrote in his diary. These words at four in the afternoon I submitted to be more vile. I love that. That's crazy man. I submitted to be more vile and proclaimed in the highways the glad tidings of salvation speaking from a little eminence in underground adjoining to the city to about out three thousand people the Scripture on which I spoke with this the spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor hair. Sent me to heal the brokenhearted to preach deliverance to the captives recovery of sight to the blind to set at liberty them that are bruised to proclaim the acceptable year of the lawsuit when Wesley finally abandoned the church approach to go and preach to the world to preach to the common people the portion of scripture that he chose to preach on. Was this passage that we're looking at this receiving subsequent history of course records that John Wesley lived out about text bringing the Gospel to the disenfranchised and to the needy masses of this country. Again if you know anything about ovation on me you know that the Salvation Army is as a grandchild of John Wesley. He's in our records he's in our DNA in the early days. At least our battle cry was for all the world in our early days offices went and appointed to call. They were appointed pointed to towns and they were that focus on those in spiritual and physical and emotional need in that community not not just on their congregation. So what's changed. Jesus still has that worldwide mission not sense of being for the world for our community not exclusively for Christians uh-huh and for the church. The question is if Jesus does do we whereas our our focus. It's lovely to come together. It's lovely to care and love each other as we do here to feel as if we're family. I'm we should never lose that. But Jesus came for those outside the family that should be why basingstoke core is here to we exist not for ourselves but for those outside of our doors for some reason which perhaps we will never fully understand this this side of heaven. Jesus is counting on us to get out there in the world and prepare the way for him in the way that we look and act like like him around those we spend our lives with our mission is an extension of Jesus mission. Our Holiness is a mobile holiness. It's not something we leave the doors when we leave here this evening we take it with us. It's a holiness cleanest that he's lived anywhere and everywhere. So ask yourself this evening. Do you have a heart for the world. Do you still believe that we can win. The world for Jesus could basingstoke being stoke core win basingstoke for Jesus the answer is only in Holy Spirit power and only if we consistently focus on rescuing the perishing around us. We must love them. We must care for them. We must ache for them. We must hurt for them. We must weep for them. We must open up to them to give ourselves away to see the needs in the community around us and to meet them finally crosby right in Hasaan rescue the perishing duty demands it strength ally ally Labor the Lord will provide back to the narrow way patiently win them. Tell the poor wanderer. A Savior has died. Rescue the parachuting care for the dying. Jesus is Merciful. Jesus will save. Will you join that mission of Jesus this evening.

"Let's pray together. Ebony father as we open your word this evening we ask you to speak to Louis to challenge US where we need challenging to require us to help win the weld. It's for Jesus to nourish US and help us to live for you in this coming week. We pray these prayers is in your name over the last couple of weeks. We have looked at this. This three part series all about change that horrible seaward that lots of don't like particularly in this modern autumn world where everything seems to change every five minutes but what we've learned over the last couple of weeks. I hope is that God wants Change Zhou a few weeks ago. We thought about changing ourselves last week we thought about changing now call and this evening. We think that it's time them to change the World Catherine booth once wrote if we are back to better the future we must disturb the present if we to better the future. We must disturb the president. God wants changing our lives in our core on in the world around around us. And what he needs us to be is ever-growing ever-changing disciples who are his change agents in the world this evening. We're thinking about winning the world for Jesus that comes from the Great Commission. We Find Great Commission. Matthew Chapter Twenty Eight Verses Eighteen to twenty twenty where Jesus comes to his disciples and says all Party and Heaven and on Earth has been given to me go there for a make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son of the Holy Spirit teaching them to observe all that I've commanded you and behold I am with you always to the end of the age. Jesus commanded his disciples and by extension his checks including ourselves to go and make disciples of all all nations to win the world for Jesus. Now if you know anything about the Salvation Army's history and I guess that most of you know in quite a bit about the salvation history then you know that. Our founders William and Catherine booth and their peers those Christian mission and in the Salvation Army in his early day early days took that great commission very very seriously they took it on. They run with it. So when the Christian mission changed its name to the Salvation Army in eighteen. Seventy eight William Booth who had become the general of the Salvation Army wrote in the Christian Mission magazine. These words the Christian mission has met in Congress to make war. It is organized the Salvation Army to carry the blood of Christ and the fire of the howdy ghost into every corner of the world. That's what he thought. The Salvation Army's purpose was to carry the blood of Christ and the fire of the holy. Any ghost into every corner of the world and Catherine Booth wrote around about the same time the decree has gone forth. Both the kingdoms of this world should become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ and he show rain. Who's right it is from the river to the ends of the Earth? We we shall win. It is only a question of time and then she wrote. I believe that this movement is to inaugurate the Great Final Final Conquest of our Lord. Jesus Christ she truly believed that the Salvation Army was going to be the movement inaugurated the Great Final Conquest of our Lord. Jesus Christ what do you think about that one on exactly. Why not because we we may say well? Let's Victorian arrogance to say that this movement is the one to inaugurate the Great Final Conquest of our Lord. Jesus Christ but they really believed it. They really believe there and from this conviction that they would be the ones that would inaugurate this great final conquest of our Lord. Oh Jesus Christ the growth of the Salvation Army mission in the world grew at breath taking speed and it only grew with that breath taking speed because God was with them and they truly believed that this was what was going to happen that they really would take Jesus easiest on his blood and fire the hardy ghost into every corner of the world but they would win the world for Jesus. How could they have that kind of conviction? How could they have that kind of confidence? Will they believed in God. He wanted to win the world for himself. John Three Sixteen says God so loved the world. It doesn't say for God also love Christians. For God's love the Church for God so loved some people and not others says for God so loved the world that he gave gave his only son whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. They knew that God's mission was for the world not just for the church which not just for the Salvation Army not just the Christians and that Jesus lived and died for the world. Not just for you you and for me. How did they know that? Because Jesus Christ said that throughout his ministry on this evening we're we're looking at the words that he said at the beginning of his mystery his mission and ministry. I was more difficult to saying. I thought I'll try that again this evening. We're looking at the words that he said at the beginning of his mission and Ministry Luke Chapter Four if you want to turn to do it in your Bibles Luke four verses fourteen to thirty and that's on page ten thirty one of our call bibles and if you remember to bring your copy of Grapevine and you'll you'll find some notes on the page to help you as we read these words together. So barrels can income and read Luke Chapter Four Verses Fourteen to thirty Jesus Return to Galilee in the power of the spirit. A news about tim spread throughout the whole countryside.

The attendant sat down the ice of everyone in the synagogue. Functioned John Him and he began by saying to them today. This scripture is fulfilled in your hearing all spoke. Well of him were amazed at the gracious words that came from his lips. Isn't this Joseph. Suddenly Jesus Said said to them surely will quote this program to me. Physician heal the ill south to here in your hometown. What we pudge that? You didn't companion. I tell you the truth. He continued. No Prophet is accepted in his hometown. I assure sure you were many of those in Israel in the largest time when the skies was shots for three and a half years and there was a severe farming's route at lund yet.

Do you ever get tired of the pace of change. Do you ever think to yourself what I could just do it. Getting off the world for a moment and catching up catching my breath and catching up a little bit. Ah The pace of change today can make us feel like if everything's changing. Almost nothing standing still is moving at a faster. Doing foster pacing the prevailing culture of today is that we want bigger and better for me and for mine. Well it's our response. What's the salvation is response? Sometimes I think that salvation chaumet coal not this one of course their responses to retreat from the world to hide in citadels and to await. Jesus turn and let the change go on outside.

God wants change in our lives. He wants changing our core and he wants to change in the world around us but for that he needs ever-growing ever-changing disciples. You are God's change agents then in the world around us. We're going to think about that in the context of our passage this evening from Luke Chapter Ten Verses Twenty five to thirty seven is a very well known. Passage is the story of the Good Samaritan but I think it has something to say to us about the change that God wants in ourselves. Let's listen to these words.

"To understand the full revelation of God that he has shown to us otherwise what happens is we define I find God in our own image and we try to put him in a box so the first thing is we need to be renewed in the spirit of our minds uh-huh so that we are right thinking about God's then Paul moves onto lots of other practical ways in which we can live out our holiness and model will Jesus life for highly liquid. He says we can speak. Truthfully we can deal with reality as it really is and we can assume responsibility when things go wrong rather than trying to pass the buck or sweep it under the carpet and pretend it didn't really happen. Paul says we can control our anger. We can show that. We don't use anger in a simple way. which is show that when we are angry? It's a constructive destructive anger rather than a destructive and Paul says we can refuse to hold a grudge. We can let go of an unforgiving spirits we can decide not to descend into petty passive aggressiveness grudges. VEGGIES and bitterness are one of the best ways the devil has for causing splits and divisions in his people one of the best weapons Z. has grudges and bitterness. They separate people from each other either forcing individuals from the core or separating core into cliques factions. Paul says give no opportunity to the devil. Let's very practical concrete holiness us. Just don't give the devil foothold. Paul says we can accept our responsibility in life and worked to supply our practical needs when we have more than enough for practical nieves. Then we can choose to share with others and if we're able all to work and to be productive we can share with those who are unable to work and be productive.

You only have to look through this list to see how counter culturally is. It's different from the way the world works totally the opposite to the way the world works. Paul calls us to live out our salvation. ISM by living out a changed life Christian living requires us to continually tenuously put off our old self and continually put on new life. Just as many of us take off and put on a uniform said there are kind of symbol of that taking off our old life and putting new lives but sadly over the years. Maybe I've even been one of them on occasions too many salvation. This limit their discipleship. They limit their holy living. They limit their holiness to what they do when they put their uniforms on on Sunday. They live what looks like a holy life in their salvation. EST World when they're at the core or doing call ministry wherever that happens to be but look very different when you go out into the secular world and observe them there in the world where they spend most of their time in the salvation is worlds they can be seen proudly wearing their prestige and cleaned uniforms. Worshiping Learning Bain Disciples enjoying fellowship with fellow salvation this welcoming newcomers into the core and using their spiritual Gifts but when out in the secular world they change the guided by different families. They follow the world's values even though those world values often clash with the values of the Kingdom of God consumerism. Tempts them to buy more things thinks. Because that's just the way that things are in the real world the tempted to earn money in a fraudulent way or morally questionable way. Because that's just the world works. It's what everyone does in the world. I find themselves elves in conversations where other people are insulted or demeaned and they failed to challenge those in the conversation and to offer compassion respect. Instead Jesus calls us all of us to put off our self centered. Mines and I'll self-centered false Selves and to put on his self emptying mind put on our new selves. And he calls us to do that. What Day by day and to do it out there as well as in here? He calls us to put on his character and to put on his righteousness justness. He wants us to live lives. That are marked by his truth and his love. It's counter cultural. It's radical it's radical. It's holy shakes us out of any sense of complacency and it's a full-time calling a part time job but it's also concrete and practical all these things in the list that Paul this in seventeen thirty two and if Asians chapter for all practical things we could do. Tomorrow I'm many of us will because it's concrete and practical. It's not beyond around our capability. Something we are capable of doing in the power of the Holy Spirit. So let's ask ourselves taking. What is it that we're willing to risk to live out the values of the Kingdom of God wherever we find ourselves tomorrow? What is it that we're willing to risk to live out the values of the Kingdom of God wherever we find ourselves tomorrow? We're we live a tame drawl dry dull insipid lukewarm holiness.

Seventeen to thirty two if you want to find that in your bibles now if you're using one of us. It's on page and Lebanon seventy-five Fijian's chapter four verse. Seventeen seventeen to thirty two and if you picked up a set of message notes when you came in then they will help you as we go through this passage together. I want to start with a nice big question. What is the Salvation Army? What is the Salvation Army? Why does the Salvation Army exist? What's its purpose? I also that because sometimes I look at the salvation particularly in the Western world. and I wonder if we're not in a crisis of identity that we don't know what the Salvation Army's that we're not quite clear on in ways that perhaps we used used to in our very early days we were most definitely a radical Christian movement that called people to Jesus radical way of living and just think about our early days. We actually had the brass neck. Do use up phrase down here next year. That's good. We have the brass neck back to go to the poorest places of Victorian London to go to the gutters to go to those Victorian slums and we have to brass neck to say eight to those people the people who are marginalized and on the fringes of our society you can be saved and you can live a radical holy me life you can live a life of radical discipleship unholy living but when I look could our recent history in Western world. I wonder if we're prepared just to settle for complacency when we we compare ourselves to our early forefathers have we just settled for complacency for the last forty or so years we seem to have been content in just to become another institutionalized church. We've we've worked hard to become just another denomination and we've become enlarged pie are very well loved and well supported charity whenever I go out and collect or stand collecting people. Paul always say we love the Salvation Army always prepared to give to the Salvation Army. Sometimes it looks as though we're barely Christian Social Services Agency ED prepared to deliver a very high level of professional social service help. But sometimes when we've done that we've downplayed our faith and we've been unwilling to help those that we've helped seek help with their spiritual journey as well as with their physical and emotional needs. What's I wonder sometimes if we simply expected out decline the you know the way the trajectory that we're on particularly in the the Western world is just the way that is that we content just to Peter out until we simply cease to exist? Maybe we think think. Limited lifespan is simply inevitable as far as the Salvation Army's consent. Well I believe that. That's not our only option. How about you? I believe. That's not our only option. Jesus is still calling the Salvation Army to be credible followers Of his where the Salvation Army has become dry and dull. I still believe that those dry bones can live where we become lukewarm. I believe in the Holy Spirit can ignite US and direct us once more where there are salvation in this core and elsewhere who's holiness is dying for lack of oxygen. I believe the Holy Spirit can breathe new life into them do. Do you believe that there is still time for the Salvation Army and for Beijing. Cortin live out. Its calling as a vital movement kind of compassionate APP committed followers of Jesus and already see around me I see compassionate followers and committed followers of Jesus business living out their lives are salvation is around me all the time. So how can we ensure that we are the radical cool disciples that Jesus still needs today. We'll eat versus from a vision chapter four. I think can help us.

"Let's pray together Lord. We have just stunned that we love you that we want to be in relationship with view that we want to be in relationship. We also as we open your word this evening that you will help us to be in ever closer relationship with you. Help us to live like you help us to display your likeness to those around us because we abide in you because of our close relationship with you well in your name and so the passage. We're looking at this evening. Is John Twenty one John. Chapter Twenty One verses fifteen to twenty five if you picked up one of our bibles is on the way in. And that's on page one zero nine zero and if you picked up some message notes on the way and then you can follow those as we look at this passage together the is a holiness movement. One of the great themes of love salvation. EST Life is holiness and living that holiness living that holy life to full measure. But do you ever get the impression impression that holiness holy living is all about living by the rules. You get ever feel that way some vacation as you're allowed to say yes or no sometimes thank you Mike. Can you remember some of the rules that we followed in days gone by. I can remember the days when the rule was that we were expected to go to every meeting on Sunday and in my situation that meant to who Sunday schools to open meetings three meetings and the only time that we weren't allowed to go to those meetings we'll when we were on holiday and then we were expected to go to the Salvation Army somewhere else. That was one of the rules that we followed. Do you remember the rule that said that. If you were involved in core activities then they came first before everything else. Lots of young people throughout the years probably still today today have that conflict between the activities that they're involved in the salvation army and then other activities that take place in school and other places. We had a rule about having family devotions every day around the table and saying up prayers before we went to bed. Some of US had rules that we didn't watch. TV TV on a Sunday ends up. If you follow that rule yes a few of you. Some people never went to the cinema or went to watch live sport. Some wouldn't go dancing. Obviously those suits their mini skirts in uniform. Probably not such a problem. I've lived with rules over the air. About what color socks have to wear uniform in fact I still have those rules today as an officer. I'm what kind of shoes were allowed to wear fien in Salvation Army music sections where there were rules about what color tights the ladies wore usually. Just the ladies and what type of back act carried and all those sorts of things and even today the soldiers covenant that we sign when become when we become Salvation Army soldiers. We sometimes are tempted to see as a set of rules to keep. But here's what I see. In Jesus's life he preached to ordinary people who had enough trouble making ends meet. They didn't have enough time or energy to pursue the laws of holy living that was demanded by their Jewish religion. Many in the crowds follow. Jesus were crippled and disabled. Some of them had lifestyles which were well somewhat less than wholly and you think it's strange how Jesus spent so how much time with the Publicans on the tax collectors and the prostitutes the people that Jesus spent time with we're rule breakers not rule keepers. And yet somehow they were the ones in which Jesus placed the most hope he came saying the Kingdom of God for such as them. The Kingdom of God was open to those who believe in Jesus but closed to those who placed their confidence and security in keeping the religious rules. Now before you start writing your emails and your letters to the divisional commander. Let's just say that I'm preaching salvation. Heresy I'm not suggesting that living out the Christian life in a dedicated and disciplined way isn't good for us because after all the Publicans and the tax and the prostitutes and everybody else Jesus met had transformed lives because they met Jesus us their lives were different after they met. Jesus just think about Jesus story of the Prodigal Son who was forgiven so that he could start all living like the child of God that he wants all the adulterous woman. He was forgiven not so that she could continue in her adultery but so that she he could live a totally new and different life. Perhaps the greatest example of this transformation is poor the chief of sinners as he called himself. Alf was justified by God's grace so that he wouldn't fall back into the sin of of spiritual legalism that he'd indulged in until Jesus on that. Damascus wrote it is a real temptation to reduce the holy living to a set of rules after all an army stopped rules. Doesn't it but you know all of those rules off sacred. Let me just take one. There are times when we hold up uniform wearing as a sacred rule so just should wear it on if one soldier turns up without on will then actually means there's something wrong with them and something wrong with their spiritual temperature except that when you think about it. There are officers and than soldiers who've used the uniform distraction from their unhealthy lifestyle. Suddenly the rule doesn't make much sense. I'm sure you haven't but I've met uniform. Salvation exists with hearts of stone. Doesn't matter about the uniform they wear then and I have to confess for myself. There have been times when I've been guilty of following all the rules of being a good salvation. s whatever that means whilst being aware that my relationship with God was totally less than ideal so hardly in a season about uniform. Although women proudly on holy living is not about the rules that we is easier to live holy life if we have some discipline that makes exit concrete. Only living isn't about wearing ourselves into the ground three service in order to prove how good we all to God into other people people will is a call to be fruitful so we have to ask ourselves in all of this then. What is holiness? What does it mean to live the holy life to live a life of holiness? I believe this passage from John. Twenty onto one can help us and listen to fill now. She reads versus fifteen to twenty five.

Thank you have a look at those versus in your Bible if you have it be great if you did. have it. Be Good if we were looking at. God's Word together have look those verses. What do they look like doc? I glance they might look like a set of rules. There's a whole list of things that you shouldn't do and then a whole list of things that you should do instead but it's not really a set of rules because has the key comes in the two versus before the passage that we started reading versus twenty three and twenty four visions chapter four. You'll find those in your message. Notes Paul says put off your old self which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful rule desires and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds. The key to this passage is that believers arte put put off the old self that to strip away the old self so that God can give them their new self. We go from the old self to the new self when we're baptized by the Holy Spirit. That's really what we talk about. That's what we really signify on symbolize. His when we put on our Salvation Army Uniform House ovation. I'm a uniform is useful in lots of ways but the biggest thing is that they they are a symbol of the fact that we've taken off our old lives we've stripped off our old lives and we have put on our new life baptized by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit kills off our old self and raises us us with Christ into the new life when we are baptized by the Holy Spirit we are reborn by the Holy Spirit Parrot. We renounce the forces of darkness and we embrace the Kingdom of light the habits of our old self no longer have control over us because we've stripped off and we've put on our new life. The Holy Spirit empowers us to resist the evil powers. How is of the world and gives us the motivation to put our whole trust in Jesus Grace and love? So can you see now that this passage is not a set of rules to follow things that you shouldn't do and things that you should do. It's not like the cub scouts or the brownies where we get a merit badge whenever we take one of these off. I'm not I'm not talking any me falsehoods anymore. Tick speaking truth with my neighbor tick. I'm not angry angry. I don't let the sun go down on my anger. Take haven't given an opportunity to the devil take. It's not that kind. Aww List living the holy life is not like collecting merit badges as a as a scout or Brownie and by the way since we're in a salvation army meeting can I just say the soldiers covenant is just the same the soldiers covenant is not a titlist list of rules to follow things to do when things not today and I say that because in my interactions with salvation is here in this core and elsewhere in the salvation army world. It seems that sometimes. That's what we reduce the soldiers covenant to another set of rules and regulations to follow. It isn't both this passage in a Fijian's and our soldiers covenant marks of the new life given to us when we're baptized by honey spirit when we take off our old selves and we put on new selves. God puts this way baptized by the Holy Spirit. Then this passage and our soldiers covenant is what our lives begin to look like. We're a new creation if we're a new creation than we cannot go back back to being our old self. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is not some kind of make ova paper over the cracks and hope that things will last. It's replacing one old self with a completely new self. The old all self is cast away and we focus on new life instead of turning back to the ways of death so so Paul says in this passage that when God gives us new life if we told lies in our old self the now we tell the truth if we had a tendency to be angry in our old life well then now we seek the peace of God's not as a take list to put because that's a mark of the new life that God has given us if we're a thief than we stop stealing and we look at ways of sharing doing what we have with those around some working honestly with our hands if our talk is unwholesome in our old self than when we take that often we strip off allow God to put new life into us then we start encouraging people and so on. This is what this passage is about. It's not list. It's the way life begins to look when we're baptized by the Holy Spirit and God gives us. He's new life. So what's our part in this hour. These verse one of Chapter Five Life if you want to memorize some scripture this week then this might be the verse to memorize. It's only one two three four five six seven eight words long. That's quite good for memorization. I think Paul says therefore be imitators of God as beloved children. That's our part therefore be imitators of gold is beloved children say with May therefore be imitators of God as beloved children therefore be imitators of God as beloved children like the small child in our video learns the way of life by imitating his parent so we learn Holy Life by imitating being got and we imitate God by simply following his example in his son. Jesus Christ on emulating his character in our lives. How many times have we send in the words of John Gallons down there in your message notes? I'm from southern number. Three hundred twenty eight to be like Jesus. This hope possesses me in every thought and cree undead. This is my aim my creed to be like Jesus. This hope possesses me his spirit helping me lie a came. I'll be. I'm afraid to sermon isn't rocket signs. Just take those middle lines if each and every one of us really really allowed going to grow in us that we could say in every thought and this is my aim mike create then we would be like Jesus that's just logic his net. It's not rocket science. It's logic in every thought. Indeed this is my a Mike creed to be like. Jesus if that was really what we wanted to do then we would be like Jesus. A disciple of Jesus longs to live the holy life. He or she is a student fully committed to imitating tasting their teacher. We read about Jesus in the Bible. Not Justin Oh more about him but in order to imitate him. I'm because of our relationship with God through Jesus Christ and the power given to us by the Holy Spirit we become godly characteristics An obedient cycles. In the way relief later we read about Jesus unlearn his example. But we also read each other. Have you noticed that we also so read each other you see. It's not enough to read about Jesus in the Bible and seek to put and then seek to put his example into practice because if we think about the analogy of the young child.

"If you'd like to turn to the evening's main passage we're looking at a Fijian's chapter four Fijian's chapter four starting at Verse Twenty Five and we're going into chapter five in verse two if you're using one of our bibles on page eleven. Seventy six eleven seventy six fees in chapter four verses twenty five to trump to five I to pray together. Jesus we come together this evening as a people who declare corporately and individually you load on. We declare our willingness US and wish and desire to live a harley life. We ask that through through the words that you will speak to us this evening. You will help us to live that hardy life better day by day so that we become more and more like you and we all sees praising your name so over the last few few weeks when I've been here we've been thinking I've said about this. This early Christian Dogma this early Christian creed this early Christian expression of faith. Jesus is Lord. And we've been thinking about what that means when Christians and salvation EST say Jesus this is Lord. What we reminded ourselves in? The past few weeks is that there isn't just a belief we don't just say we believe that Jesus is Lord but that in in saying Jesus is Lord that lives that brings us to a particular way of life that our lives say. Jesus is Lord and the way that we live day by day it means a life of obedience and surrender to him a holy life a life of holiness sinus and so our Salvation Army's tenth article of faith or doctrines. If you look at a message notes if you picked up on the way this evening say we believe that. It the privilege of all believers to be holy sanctified and their whole spirit soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord. Jesus as Christ what does that doctrine. Meanwhile does that article of faith mean well not is first of all that it says that it is the privilege of all believers leave us not of some believers but all believers and so all believers are called to be holy a sanctified and that their whole spirit soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord. Jesus Christ it says it's a privilege privilege but it's not privileged in the sense of. We often say society that there are some privileged people who are rich and have been given everything in life and then there are some that are not privileged when we talk about privilege in this article of faith we mean but it is a free the an undeserved gift from God. That's what it means to be a privilege. So we don't mean that there are some holy Christians and some unholy Christian questions. You don't believe in unholy Christians. Do you know if you're a Christian. Then it is the privilege of all believers of Air Free Christian to be holy to live the holy life. It's clear through his teaching and three poles else teaching as well. Look this evening that Jesus really intends to make every believer a radical follower that we should be his holy people holy living was always the plan. It wasn't just about getting people saved wasn't just about Out Jesus dying on the Cross to save us but that we should live a holy life afterwards so we need to know if that was always a plan what is is it. What is hardly living? Well it's to be like got holy. Living is to be like God now. I could leave the sermon here and we can say yes. We all agree with that and that would be fun. We could all go home. I'm not going to living a holy life means to be like God to imitate Gods. Now have you ever noticed how children imitate adults. Yes those of your parents will have noticed how children imitate adults. It's a way of learning in fact. Probably the main way that they learn just as a reminder have a look at a screen three.

And in some translations I know the Holy Spirit is actually referred to as the comforter which is probably even a better word so in the old chessmen the people had to rely to some extent on the words of the Prophets Spring Comfort to them and I had also most of the time had to see with their own eyes. Miracles being performed cyclope leaving God only a few individuals filled. We've got spirit for example. Tehran me we read Joe Joshua being filled with the spirit however we members of I've got family and got children members whose family Jesus told us the promised us that we will be filled his spirit. What Jesus did not say and I think sometimes we do tend to forget this is that why not be a bread of roses? Jesus I did not promise that nothing bad will happen to us and everything will be easy and present in fact John Fifteen. We read that Jesus says they are persecuted it million they will persecute you so to summarize. We are members of God's family because we love and obey him he he acknowledges that by knowing our names and sending his Holy Spirit toss his spirit he guides and comforts suss either directly using the words. He's word in the Bible or by using other Christians by prompting. Some coming onsite site. US be to us what we require of him that day as I mentioned at the beginning all these folks came initially because I was thinking of songs the song and we're now going to listen to that song and the key words words in this song are do not be afraid I am with you and I love you for your mind while this is playing out.

"Thank you any. So shall we say. Shall we get the controversy out of the way I do notice. There's a controversy in this passage. Anybody faith without deeds yes so whole says actually. It's mother works that save you. It's not the deeds that save you. It's only faith that saves you. And that's what we follow as Protestant Evangelical Christian. So if you look at the first burst in your outline Romans Three Twenty eight Paul says for we maintain that a person is justified by faith. Apart from the works of the the law. In other words you'll save by faith not by works in Galatian strapped to to sixteen. That's the next verse in your outline. Paul says yet. We know that a person is justified. Fide not by the works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ and we have come to believe in Christ Jesus so that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by doing the works of the law because no one will be justified by the works of the law. So did Paul and James Contradict each other. Well let's have a look at the context first of all. They were confronting different issues. So Paul in his letters was confronting false teachers. Those false most teachers would take teaching networks in particular things like being circumcised and observing Jewish ceremonial laws. They were all necessary for salvation vice. You couldn't be saved. You couldn't belong to God unless you went through those ceremonial laws. James is is arguing. Something different he's arguing with those who believe that simply agreeing with the Gospel in other words. Having a kind of intellectual faith in their minds was enough to obtain salvation. There's also a difference in the timeframe of the believer's faith journey. Paul is talking about salvation -ation right at the beginning of the Christian journey and he's saying no one at this point at the beginning of the Christian journey no one can ever earn God's forgiveness and salvation. It's a gift. We were thinking about not over Easter when we saw Vatian is gift. It's a gift of grace and we obtain Tena through faith not through works. All we can do is to accepted James Speaking to Christians who are further along that journey mature Christian believers those who already accepted that gift of forgiveness and salvation and he is saying in essence for well them they must live a new life if through faith they have obtained salvation and the gift of forgiveness and salvation. Then it must look like a different different life as mature believers. James isn't saying that works. Have to be added did to faith but that genuine faith includes works. So that's a controversy out of the way now we can focus on what James wants to say to us this evening. Kiva is not verse. Seventeen James says so with faith if it does not lead to action it is in itself lifeless thing faith if it does not lead to action is in itself a lifeless thing now among many Christians today they say. Do you know the days have gone now for preaching. That's black and white. We need it to be a little bit more gray. We needed to be a little bit more nuanced well. James clearly didn't believe in that because we have this stark warning here. It's black and white. It simply believing in God is not enough. Can't get much more black and white and that Kenny simply believing in God is not enough conviction and intellectual belief kind of a belief in our minds that refuses to obey Christ comes is lifeless date again. There's this quite black and white isn't it isn't it. You're either alive or dead. Sometimes we might feel between but honestly either alive over it. How do we know that our faith is the real thing? How do we know that our faith is alive and not dead because it does what it says on? The Tin Action is the fruit of living faith. If we don't respond to others needs if we don't respond to those social issues that we thought about a few minutes ago then whatever faith eighth we possess is dead black and white. It's dead just in case we don't get not James. Has This hypothetical example for us to go through in verses fifteen to sixteen suppose brother or sister is in ranks with not enough food. For the day I'm unwanted says well good luck to you keep yourselves warm and have plenty to eat but does nothing to supply their bodily needs. What is the good of that? And what are we all say to dot. It's no good a toll. That's quite straightforward. Isn't it really. James Raises is hypothetical socialist. You have his day and I'm sure that there were people who are actually in that kind of situation and simply asks what would we do. What would we do? Would we really see someone in rags and with no food for the day and simply say well good luck to you keep yourself warm and have plenty to eat. Well if so then our faith is nothing but empty words because those words mean nothing. It's certify inadequate isn't it to say to someone on him not situation. Well Good luck to you. Keep yourself warm and I hope you're okay. It doesn't work because nothing changes now. We might actually actually be really sincere. And those words that we say it's not that we dismiss them and say we're good luck to you. We might actually mean keep yourself look after yourself goes well words might be well many but nothing altars in the end. I'm that's why James says our faith is date because nothing changes something more than simply talk is required if however we see see someone in ranks and with no food for the day and our faith stirs Stark Shen if we find them some warm clothes to wear or we find them shelter or something thing warm and comforting tweet actions. Confirm that our faith is alive. It's the real thing because it's doing. What exactly what it says on the tin gene our faith changes the situation? I'm that's what shows that our faith is alive. Now this is in the Salvation Army's DNA. I'm preaching to the converted tonight. Salvation is believe this. Don't worry yes good about twenty of you. That's pretty good. William Booth said you cannot warm. The heart of hearts people with God's love if they have an empty stomach uncalled feet. He got it. He got those words from James. He realized that real faith real faith makes a real difference in human life and it was his belief and good works as the fruit of faith that led us to set up homeless hostels soup kitchens match factories freeze job clubs all sorts of different things many of which still going on today need oriented evangelism. Him as the phrase goes is still one of the strengths of the army. Today God continues to call us to share God's love in ways that are relevant to the needs of those around us we are called as the Salvation Army. We cold basingstoke core. We are cold. As individuals individuals salvation exists to meet the relational material emotional and spiritual needs of those op community. Who Most need it so the question tonight? It's quite easy isn't it. Is our faith the real thing does our faith say exactly what it does exactly what it says on. How are we using our spiritual gifts? Our energy we are experiencing our contacts and a time on material goods to meet the felt needs of the people of basingstoke or do we have to admit admit to ourselves that actually we quite content to wish them well and hope they find the help that they need so if we want our call to grow then it's the job of every believer here to ensure that their faith does what it says on the team. There are people in the world out there who need you they need me May need Christ. Will you ensure that yours is a fighting faith.
