NPR's Rage Over Laws That Stop Individuals From Infiltrating Elections

"Here's an interesting headline in NPR, private funding saved a 2020 election. Now some GOP led states are banning it. This article by miles parks, raises the immediate question. How can private funding save an election? You have an election. Elections, by the way, is supposed to be run by, I shouldn't just say the government, but by the states themselves. Using state money. They're not supposed to be vulnerable to private funding for the simple reason that private funding comes with private leverage and private leverage can lead to control manipulation, even the takeover of an election process. Now the point here is that NPR knows that this is in fact kind of what happened, at least in certain key places, like Wisconsin, in the 2020 election. It was so brazen. It was so outrageous that no one even thought to pass laws against it. And so Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan put in almost half a $1 billion. Other people put in money as well, and then using front groups, these so called nonprofits. They were able to go to election offices and essentially say, listen, we'll give you money, but on the condition that you let our people in to help run things. Wow. So talk about manipulation of an election by private individuals using the pocketbook. I mean, here are the left rails about campaign finally campaign finance laws, big money has too big a role in the election. Dinesh, you gave $20,000 over the campaign finance limit. It's a real pity you aren't locked up for two full years for that. Your contaminating democracy, but somehow, here it comes to Mark Zuckerberg when I'm talking about $20,000 when I'm talking about $200,000, we're talking about $400 million.

What Will We Say About Election Integrity if Dems Surprisingly Win?

"What are people going to say about election integrity then? When you've got CNN, confidently predicting that Republicans are going to win in a landslide, are you feeling what I'm feeling? Shades of driving through America in October of 2020, Trump yard signs everywhere, thousands of people jamming stadiums to see president Trump, Biden never left his basement 11 people would show up once in a while in a parking lot, honking their horn at him. And he won. It won't that feel like this all over again. When people on the right say we shouldn't look back at November 2020, I want to rip my hair out. I want to just pull my hair out. They hope people aren't paying attention to any of this. Election integrity does matter. Getting this right does matter. Because we are facing something we've never faced before. The fact of the matter is they're doing everything they can. To change to transform America. In a way that Barack Obama never dreamed possible.

Well, the very vicious and they fight very much harder than we had, we had Bill Barr. He didn't want to be impeached, so how do you not get impeached? Don't do anything. And you know, when somebody like that says that, oh, no, the election was just fine. And then you watched 2000 mules, or you watch many other things, too. Well, you just look at the proof. Look at Arizona. Look what happened with the audit. Look even the attorney general who is very weak, very weak in Arizona because he showed this massive fraud that was presented to him by the Senate and others. He showed this massive fraud and irregularities. And then he goes, we can't let it happen again. Well, what about taking care of the stuff that happened? Not just saying we can't let it happen again. So he's gone way down in the polls now because of that people are very unhappy about it. But if you look at Georgia, if you look at Pennsylvania where there are subpoenas all over the place, if you look at Wisconsin with the nursing homes where almost everybody voted, but historically very few people vote in nursing homes because they have other problems, frankly. But you look at what happened in Wisconsin with the nursing homes and other things. It's an take a look at Racine Wisconsin. The sheriff, there's a real patriot. Take a look at Racine Wisconsin, where the sheriff went out. He went to see if it was true. And he said, it's far worse than I ever anticipated. Not better, but far worse. No, we have corrupt elections that we have open borders. You know, nobody would have thought this. I always said, you need strong borders to have a country. Well, we have the worst part is we had the best borders in the history of our country two years ago. Now we have the worst borders in the history. And the other thing we have is corrupt elections.

AJ Benza Recalls His Encounter at the Amityville Horror House

"I recall that night, the me and my buddies were parked outside that house. And we sat there, 5 years to the night and time of the murders and just quietly listened to the minimal amount of noise emanating from the neighborhood. Maybe there was the occasional whoosh of a car passing ocean having you at two 30 in the morning. Maybe the coups and chirps of some night birds, the blow birds, they called it because of the many nights I'd heard them while I was wide awake and way too high with no sleep in sight when I was in my 30s and had my relationship with cocaine. But this was different. Because I wasn't high, per se. I mean, we all felt a little good, but that was it. We were at the giggling stage, which at 17 years old was everything. I still remember some of the last we had that night, some 40 years later. So anyhow, we're sitting there. Some of us are doubters, some of us are believers, but we could all agree that what happened that night was unexplainable. As we sat and watched in quiet, suddenly, and without warning, Ronnie kinnear's Elton John's 8 track tape slammed into place and the song funeral for a friend began to play at a decibel. We were never used to playing any song at that level. Now the beginning of that song has a lot is a long instrumental for a good four minutes and change and it gets scary music to say the least don't listen to it. When it comes on full blast, we all jump and scream. And Ronnie, can we lift his hands to show that he had nothing to do with it? Of course he didn't. I sat right next to him. I saw the a tac a track gets sucked into that machine, an inch or so. Without the aid of anybody's hands. I don't know what that means or how the hell that happened, but I watched it with my own eyes. And that's not all that happened. Ronnie had no control of the HVAC player. He couldn't inject the cassette. He couldn't even lower the ear bending volume. I'm not saying the lyrics to that song had anything to do with death or being frightened, but I can tell you, after that song came on so loud, we banged a U turn across someone's lawn and ripped it up as we high talented back to west Iceland.

"park " Discussed on Lincoln Park Church of Christ Sermons

"Nobody on this planet could believe in. Christ jesus for you. There's a reason why so many of our children as they go off to college. Don't return to the church of their you because they never learned to have their own. They had their parents faith or maybe their grandparents faith but they need to learn how to have their faith. because they're gonna stand before god in judgment and so when we think about loads or or burdens in this life that only week at bear. Nobody can believe in christ for you. Nobody can repented the send your life for you. Nobody answer for you when you stand before god in judgment for each one must give an account of his life before a holy and righteous god and that means that nobody gets lost in the crowd that means that nobody gets to hide behind others then nobody gets to hide behind organizations because each one will stand or fall on his own merits. Each one will stand or fall based on the choices that they make in their life and choices could have either positive or negative consequences to them and so there is a man back in the colonial days who was a preacher. His name was john and he wrote in a diary in his diary. He said he said. I resolved that every man should do right. Whatever the cost his second resolve was whether it whether any other man does right or not. I will so help me get and i love that. Because that is the supreme being the supreme business of every christian and every man or woman child who follows god makes jesus the lord of their lives that everyone will bear his own load. Everyone should bear his own burden and so when he says whether any or other man does right or not by the will of god i will for god knows us as individuals. He judges us and he he he knows our thoughts. He knows our actions. There's nothing that's done in secret for. Knows all things and so whether anybody else does right or not. We as christians must be determined to do what is right whether anybody in the world is true or not. We must be determined as christians to be faithful and true as individuals begins first and foremost with us as individuals. So that's why when we read what it say in galatian chapter six in verse five. Each one was bear is owned load. Bears owned burden. That's what it's talking about. Because we know that because when you go back to verse four and if i go back if you slides and you were to look at this notice that verse four says that each one must examine his own work and then he will have reason for boasting but only regards to yourself not enjoyed another so you need to examine your life examined. The fruit of your life randy said this morning we can be fruit inspectors and we should examine the fruit either that we produce as righteous individuals. Do we produce good deeds or do we produce bad deeds. Do we produce bad works. Are we living in said. Are we the bad tree. Bears bad fruit. And so these are the things that we're looking to talk about here this morning because the highest contribution that we as individuals as we bear our own load can make any community. Whether it's lincoln park trenton. South grade allen park woodhaven no matter where you live each and every one of us the greatest Contribution that we can make to. Our communities is a life well lived a life. Well lift a life that is lived in righteousness with high integrity and high moral character. And we need to offer the world the right kind of life and the most beautiful portrait that we see in five words of jesus is said he went about doing good. He went about doing good and so should we. Someone once said that one example is worth thousand arguments. And i want you to think about that for a second. One example is worth a thousand arguments. Well let me give you an example. There's little story in the old testament is called sodom and gomorrah. Do you remember how many righteous individuals were needed in order to save an entire village of people telling people were needed so i asked the question. Would you been one of the ten because what they say is the greatest gift that we give to our individual communities to the world. A life. Well-lived are we the righteous tree or the battery are we producing righteous. Good works we're reducing bad food meaning son in our lives. It's you press forward. That story to the twenty first century over here in lincoln park michigan. And we all live in lincoln park and we need a ten righteous individuals to save the entire community of people. Could you be counted as one of those. Then you can answer that question. But don't forget. God knows all things he knows. If you're living faithful he knows if you're the good tree he knows if you're the battery. He knows the fruit. That's being produced from your life. And so the the most one of the most beautiful five word portrait of jesus is that he went about doing good. Another example would be jesus had twelve apostles. And then i know but when we think about the twelve men they went outside after jesus given a commission he goes back to have any gives them a commission the holy spirit comes in them and they turn the the world right side up living amongst a torturous regime like the roman empire in those twelve individuals. Along with all the disciples they went out into the world and made a world of difference. And so when you think about what i said a moment ago one example is worth a thousand eight thousand arguments how we live. Our lives matters. It's so it's very important that we understand these things the best contribution that we could ever offered this world is to is to set the right example and think about the second aspect of this and now we get to verse too because when you get a galatian and you get to chapter six and you you look at verse two. It tells us that we are to bear one another's burdens and thus fulfill the law of christ right. Well what is he saying here well. Burdens oftentimes should be shared with others. And we'll talk about this here this morning. It is also important to check the context of this passage because it says in verse five. That only only you can bear your own. Load your own burden but yet verse two so that we could bear the burdens of others and that we should in so many of the problems that we have in religion in the church is because scriptures have been taken out of their proper context and so we go back and we look at galatian six one. In what did it say in the verse before verse two it says brethren if a man be overtaken in a fault it's talking about sin you who are spiritual meaning right just restore such a one in the spirit of gentleness considering yourself less you be tempted brother. That's what we're talking about a bible study this morning. That is brothers in christ as sisters in christ that we are to go to one another when we find sin in the church and when we find sin that is a glaring obvious. one another's lives. We are to go each other to each other individually and that they don't listen to you then you take two or three more so they can be witnesses. They don't listen to them. You take it to the church. They listen to the church. Then the you allow those christians those brothers and sisters who have gone apostate to be like tax tax collectors heathens and so what is the point here when we look at this passage of scripture. The apostle paul says that we are to bear one another's burdens dust fulfilling the.

"Our country and learn about all the rising percentages of depression, suicide, sin, crime, volatility in society, towards people who think differently than you, it becomes very clear, very quickly what the world needs and his name is Jesus. But it begins and ends. Not only in the word of God, but it begins and ends with you. Every single one of us hear this morning have a role to play. Every single one of us in this building this morning are integral to the furtherance of the congregation here at Lincoln park, but more than that, the universal kingdom of God. We all have to do our parts. And it starts with stepping out in faith. By sharing the word of God and by living out your faith and doing some of the things that I set forth as an example here this morning. Brothers and sisters as disciples of Christ we must all take the living word of God out into the world because God has said, go. And share. And teach and preach. And so I leave you with this this morning. When's the last time you've went? And you shared and you taught, when's the last Bible study you've had? When's the last time you sat down with the family member or a friend and had a Bible study? I know that most of the time people are going to say no. But that's why living your life as a Christian is so very important. But when's the last time you made an offer, I know many people will say no, but when's the last offer you made? With a family member, a friend or a coworker. I'm not talking about going out and talking to strangers. People you know. Ask yourself that question. Along with the last time I had somebody in my home with the express purpose to build a stronger bond with those individuals. Because brethren, that's where it begins. We are the living representatives of Jesus Christ. And he needs us to go into the world. He's done his part. Now it's time for us to do our part. Are you willing to stand up, share your faith in lip sacrificially for the kingdom of God? If you're hearing this message this morning, brethren, there's a challenge that has been set forth. And I pray to God that each of us accept that challenge. Because our eternal destination hangs in the balance. We will all stand before Christ Jesus. It tells us, and second Corinthians chapter 5 verse ten. And it says we will give an account of our lives. What do you want that account to read? You get to decide what Jesus sees. Brother, sisters, if you hear this morning and you need the prayers of the church, you can come forward this morning. We'll pray for you. It will help you in any way that we can. You may be may have been away from the church for a time. And you wish to be restored because you know you haven't been living for God. We know you haven't been living the Christian lifestyle and you want to make today the day that I start moving forward. You can come forward this morning and do that. We'll pray for you. And you may have not been a child of God. Yeah, you may have not come to Christchurch. You may not have been washed in the blood of the lamb. Well, you have an opportunity to be baptized this morning. For the forgiveness of your sins to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit and God himself will answer to the kingdom as we come in as we stand and sing..

"Because the word of God gives direction to our lives and the word of God is that guide that light to our path that gives that makes the crooked past straight. So every one of us has an important role to play in the kingdom of God. For the furtherance of the Lincoln park congregation, but for the furtherance of the kingdom of God. If too many people don't fully understand that you have a role to play, and showing up here on Sunday, really isn't part of that rule. We show up here on Sunday to give thanks for the sacrifice. Do this and remember to me that Jesus made on our behalf. So as Christians, we come together to worship God sing songs appraised to his holy name. To lift him up in prayer. It's a gift thanks to encourage one another. But then we are to leave this building, go into the mission field of the world and do what? Share your faith. Teach and preach and allow your changed life to be what sets the example. Brethren, noticed the first passage description here this morning. As we look at this first pass as a scripture in a first Peter, brother, we need to understand that by living out our faith and by living changed lives, people are going to see that something is different about you. Where does that concept come from in the scriptures? Because the scriptures are what guys are lives. It all begins and ends in scripture. First Peter one, 14 through 16 tells us this. As obedient children do not be conformed to the former lust, which were yours and your ignorance. What does it mean that we're yours and your ignorance? It says you didn't know what you didn't know. You didn't know what righteousness looked like. You didn't really know what sin was because you haven't read the word of gajah. You haven't been directed in holiness. And so Peter tells us that as obedient children, we're not conformed to the world, like we used to be in our ignorance, but like the holy one who called you, be wholly yourselves in all of your behavior. Why? Because I myself am holy. Brothers and sisters, you look at this passage description here this morning. And when you think about it, prolong sent in our lives has a way of defining us. Does it not? If you have consistent prolonged sin over a long period of time, when people see you, what do they usually see? The sin in your lives, they know you're knowing by the sin in your life, but that same concept is true of righteousness. You could change your past doesn't have to define you. It doesn't have to define you, and you can allow a new found righteousness and holy living to be what defines you. But it's gonna take time to change the perception that they have of you from years gone by. That's why Jesus says it's hard for a profit to be a profit in his own hometown. Because many people aren't willing to let go of the past. What they think they know about you. And so brothers and sisters. We know that righteousness has the same effect that prolonged righteousness over a period of time consistent, holy righteous living will then change the perception that people eventually have of you. And when you allow your soul, when you allow your attitude when you allow the sin problem that you have in your life to be brought into subjection to the word of God, a beautiful transformation begins to take place. And it's like a budding flower. That's opening slowly. But as it opens slowly, it gets more and more beautiful every day. And that's what our Christian faith our Christian walk is like. Brothers and sisters, when you allow your life to be washed by the blood of Christ, a marvelous transformation takes place. Why? Because it says at that point, you become a new creation. God says, stop dwelling on the past. Stop dwelling on the sin. Stop allowing people to find who you are based on past actions. You're no longer that person. You buried that person. He's dead in God. And now we understand that when we've been washed in the blood of Christ and we're a new creation, rather and gossip stop dwelling in the past because I remember it no more. He says, why are you still dwelling on that garbage? It's like it never happened. But we have to allow that concept to sink in. It stopped dwelling on what used to define us. A fees chapter one number 7 tells us, in Jesus, listen to this, and Jesus, we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace. Brothers and sisters, we need to be a people that immerse ourselves in the word of God. Why? Because we're now a new creation, there has been forgiven by the rich, graces of God, and now you look at the next passage description. And I think of what young what Paul told young Timothy who was an evangelist. And this is this concept in this thought process is for all Christians that we are to be diligent to present ourselves. What? As a proof to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, who accurately handles the word of God. Brothers and sisters. By doing so, we could teach others. We could go and share our faith and teach others about the love and the grace of Jesus Christ of God the father and the Holy Spirit, which we lived out, which as we transform our lives, we live out the sacrifice of Christ. Because now while living sacrificially because we buried the old man of sin, we're living a new, and now we're living sacrificially, not for the desires of the flesh, not for the sins that we used to enjoy, but now we live a sacrificial life in service to God and service to the kingdom. And we can confidently teach others how to be freed from bondage is sin. You know why? Because who else here has been freed from the bondage of sin? Anybody here have been freed from the bondage of sin? What freed you from the bondage you said? The blood of Jesus Christ. Don't you think it might be helpful if we let other people know that they too can be freed from the bondage of sin? That they too have a hope for a better tomorrow and that's your past doesn't have to define you in that there is hope in that God's great love and grace brethren is waiting for them. We look at the scriptures here this morning and we need to remember that as we teach people about the golden rule, we need to make sure we're living it out. And you think about Matthew chapter 7, you think about verse 12. This is where what we oftentimes and Christian them call the golden rule, right? It says in everything, therefore, treat people, the same way that you wish to be treated. For this is the law. This is the profits. How you treat others will say a lot about your faith. Remember what I said? You may be the only Bible that somebody ever reads. What is the impression that you want to leave with them? What's the impression that you want to leave with them of God and of his people? That were just like them. That we send constantly that they can't tell a difference between us. I've often said, if God looks out over the sea of humanity. And he can't tell a difference. Between his people, the church, the bride of Christ and the rest of humanity,.

"Good morning, everybody. Everybody having a good weekend. Amen, all right. Well, yesterday we had our trunk or treat here and I just want to thank you to all the volunteers. I know Ashley and them are spearheading it. And it went out. It went off perfectly, and it was a wonderful time that was had by all. And so I want to thank everybody that came out to have some good times and have some laughs. And so it was a wonderful day yesterday. And as you see the various fellowship opportunities that are on that are in the bulletin, let's try to support those to the best of our abilities because I tell you what there's no better time and no better group of people that I can think to be around than our family here at Linkin Park. And so as you look around right now, we should look around the auditorium, right? We have a pretty good crowd here this morning, but we have some holes over here. We got some holes over here. And I know we have some sickness in the congregation right now. We're at that time of year now where you're entering into the fall time, the seasonal allergies. Obviously, we're still in a pandemic. We know about COVID, but we also are entering the flu season. So let's check on our brothers and sisters in Christ. I know that we have several families that are under the weather right now. We don't have to go in and be exposed, but you know what we can do? We could drop things off on the porch. We could run the ring doorbell and run. If you don't have to run. But we can ring the doorbell, drop some things off on the porch, let them know that they're there. We could drop some meals off. Let's check on them. Let's see if they have any needs. Because I tell you what, there's nothing better than a lift and lift your spirits when you're not feeling good, then know that somebody cares. Amen. And so as we get in the word here, this morning, if you look on the screen behind me, it says be careful how you live. You may be the only Bible some people ever read. Patrick, you read that. So be careful how you live. You may be the only Bible. Some people ever read. And I'm not going to tell his story, but we are having a funny little conversation before after Bible study this morning. And I told him, I said, hey, pay attention to the server this morning, because you might find this helpful. And it was a funny story. But we look at this this morning. We talk about the word of God. We had a wonderful Bible study this morning where we were digging into the word trying to understand what Luke was teaching us and Luke chapter 6. And to me, it all begins and ends in the word of God. We know that the word of God, it guides us. It gives us direction, it gives us comfort. It transforms our very lives. It pricks the hearts of the open minded. And the word of God, it gives us direction for our soul, doesn't that? It gives direction for our attitudes. Our temperaments. It gives direction to the sin problem that we have in our very lives. And so the word of God needs to be shared with all of our loved ones. It needs to be shared with our friends. It needs to be shared with the world. And that's why I kind of went off track a little bit on Bible study this morning, but it kind of all came full circle. And in the Bible study this morning I said, what was the point when Jesus did all that the father had commanded and what is the point for us that we are to go out and share the message that Jesus share the message that he was commanded to teach at the preaching to speak that the father had given him, and then he gives us a command at the end of the gospel and Mark chapter 16, 15 and 16, Matthew 28th, 18 through 20 to go and preach, go out into the world to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, share the message with others. Why? Because it's the one of God that your wrecks are very lives. It's the word of God that gives us comfort. That transforms us in the eyes of friends family and coworkers. And so brethren, if others you encounter, you know, if let's just be honest, right? Everybody that we encounter isn't always going to want to hear about your Jesus. Amen? Everyone you encounter isn't always going to want to hear about your faith. So I need you to understand that we have to be very careful at that moment in time. You know why? Because you may be the only Bible somebody ever reads. What do I mean by that? You may be the only Bible that somebody ever reads. What I mean by that is how you live. How you love. How you forgive. How you interact with people. How you speak, the various ways you respond to all the various life situations that are throwing at us. Every aspect of your life will be unfold display for everybody to witness and everybody to see. And so when I say that your life may be the only Bible that somebody reads, they should be able to see and understand what the scriptures teach based on the changes, the transformation process that takes place in your life as you as you internalize the word of God. You're all of a sudden are more forgiving person. You all of a sudden, you don't use the same language. You speak differently. You act differently. You love differently. You're willing to forgive because you understand all my God has forgiven you. You're all of a sudden your life is transforming and blossoming before the eyes of your friends, your family members, your coworkers, and those in the world. And so what I mean by your life may be the only Bible somebody ever reads, they shouldn't have to read about forgiveness when they understand how you're willing to go above and beyond to forgive them with the transgressions that they may have committed against you. About the love that you have. Not any type of love, but sacrificial love. Rather in the world doesn't know sacrificial love, like the church should know sacrificial love, amen. And so when you look at this by living out your faith, your life, your life should be a wonderful blessing. To everybody you come in contact with. We are called to be a blessing because we know that we're going to receive eternal blessings. And so in the here and now, we live our lives as a blessing to all we come in contact with. That's what it means to be careful how you live your life because you may be the only viable somebody ever reads. We need to make sure brethren that we're not a bunch of pew sitters. We need to be active in our faith. The guy calls us to be active in our faith. You're going to hear me to say this morning, like I said in Bible study, we have been called to go. Go where? Out into the mission field of the world and do what? Preach. Teach. And share your faith. And allow your transformed life, your changed mind to be the example that everybody sees. They say, man, I know Anthony, I manual Anthony from years ago, and he's a different dude now. He ain't the same guy. That's your goal. That's what you should strive for. So people can see that he's not the same man that he used to be. There's something different about him. But what is it? Where did that transformation start? What caused the transformation? And so brother, that's why I said, it all begins it ends in the word of God..

"We could call one another. You can call somebody and just take a few moments to say, hey, listen, I don't have a lot of time to talk man, but I just want to let you know brother that the lord puts you on my heart today. I want you to know that, hey, I hope you're having a good week. If I could do anything for you, please let me know. I'm gonna be praying for this week. I hope you have a good week, brother. I gotta get back to work, but I just want to let you know I was thinking about you. I guarantee you, if you did something like that. And same Matt's having a bad day. Just for a second, you're going to put a smile on that man's face. Even if it's just for a second, brother and we need to take more opportunities to send out letters to send out cards to make phone calls. It's a do all that we can to encourage each other. Sometimes the best way to encourage others is just by listening. Like listening to somebody, not always even offering device advice. If there's one thing I learned about marriage, many times my wife doesn't want me to solve all of her problems. She just wants me to listen to her problems, which is difficult for me, because I like to solve problems. But I learned that over the years, that sometimes it's better to listen and not offer the advice. They just sometimes want to vent. And sometimes we're in the same boat as well. Brother, that's an opportunity we have. We have brethren, like the bone family, and others who've lost loved ones recently. Guess what's coming up around the corner? Holidays. You know when it's the most difficult time anniversaries of the death, birthdays, holidays. Wouldn't it be great if people glide with their way to encourage them by knowing that somebody's suffering because the loss of a loved one that they just lost and invite them into your home for the holidays? Say, listen, I know you're hurting. But I also want you to know that you're not alone. And that I'm here for you. And then I want you to share in this meal with my family. And maybe they'll come maybe they won't. But what is the point? The point is that was offered, and they're going to remember that it was offered. Rather, there are so many ways that we can encourage one another if only will think about it as the scriptures teach. I get the hebrews three and 13. And it says but encourage each and other or to encourage each other every day and to help each other so none of you will become hardened because of because sin has tricked you. Rather and encouragement is to be a daily thing. I remember one Sunday morning and I'm gonna have to shut this down because I got so much more, but I'm already out of time practically. But I remember one Sunday morning. You guys have heard me say that if I'm leading singing, we're at the bottom of the barrel. It's just a fact, right? Some of us have abilities that others don't. That wasn't one of the gifts I received from my heavenly father. I was at sunset when I first came to the lord church and I was over there and we were joking around with some of our brothers and sisters at Christ's friends after service about how bad I sing and I mess up the words all the time. It's on the screen and I mess up the words, still mess it up. And this one elderly lady, I'll overheard our conversation. And she's so sweetie, I just want you to know you keep saying it. Because I guarantee you, if you keep saying, you're gonna get better. And I remember that. It's stuck with me. Literally a year went by. And I was sitting in the pew one Sunday morning like you guys are today and we were just got done singing to him and I'm not Christy with my elbows. I'm getting better. She looked me square in the eyes and says he'll never gonna happen. Obviously, encouragement isn't one of her strong suits. And so what is the point, brethren? The point tells me and I'm just gonna look at a couple more passages. We'll shut this down a little bit earlier. In progress, 12 to 25, it tells me on the screen behind me that worry ways a person down, but it encouraging word does what? Cheers up a person. I encouraging word cheers up a person. Listen to this, that was written by king Solomon. And king Salomon and Roberts ten and 18 through 21, he said, he who conceals hatred and has lying lips. And he who spreads slander is a fool. When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable. But he who restrains his lips as wise, the tongue of the righteous is like a choice silver. The hearts of the wicked is worth little. The lips of the righteous feed many, but fools die for lack of understanding. Brothers and sisters, that came from the wisest man of his time. And that the tongue of the righteous is like a choice silver. A choice silver that's always looking for individuals that they can encourage that they can lift up because we're to love one another. Serve one another. Forgive one another. Brothers and sisters encouragement is something that is a great and a powerful gift. We need to wake up every morning and we need to be determined to do one thing. It can be a phone call, it can be a letter. It could be a card. It can be picking somebody up for a doctor's appointment. It could be whatever it is. Think of ways. That's what the scripture says. We need to think of ways that we can encourage one another to be purposeful in our encouragement. Rather and instead of focusing on all the negativity of the 24 hour news cycle, we need to focus in on God his word and his great many wonderful promises. If you do that and you add love forgiveness and encouragements, sacrificial love agape type of love into your faith and into your daily lives, I guarantee you, you're going to be like a bright light in a sick and dying world. Rather and it's time to stand up. It's time to get out of these pews here in a few minutes. We're going to go out into the mission field of the world. And I want you to ask yourself, what can you do today? To make a difference. What can you do today to put a smile on somebody else's face? You may be sitting here this morning, and you may be one of the ones that are discouraged. You may be struggling in a marriage struggling in life, struggling with your kids struggling with your finances, struggling in your faith. I don't know what it is you're struggling with, but what I do know is we have a room full of brothers and sisters in Christ, who are here today and have come together with the express purpose of worshiping God, but to further than that to also encourage and love one another. We are a family here at Lincoln park. And as a family, we are to lift one another up. So if you're hurting, you can come forward today. The elders will come forward. You could speak with them. You could talk with them. They'll meet with you and they'll set up a plan to help you in whatever way it is we can. But you may be sitting here this morning and you're not a child of God. And you have all this regrets and you feel dirty because of the scent in your lives. Rather, you can get rid of that. You're this morning. You can have your sins washed away by going down into the waters of baptism and you can be raised back up out of the water as a new creation, your sins washed away. You receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. And God himself will add you to the kingdom. Come forward if that is your desire, as we stand and sing the song of invitation..

"Put the phone away and talk. And so that's something that we're seeing that it's becoming more and more of a problem in society. And so there's too many people that are experiencing let down and discouragement. And they don't feel like they can have somebody that can turn to. You can't get that same effect on social media. As you can in the flesh, there's nothing that can replace a hug from somebody who loves you. And cares about you. There's nothing that can replace that listening ear when you got something going on in your life and you need that person. You need that one person that you can talk to. Not on a private message that I send you on Facebook, but now on a one on one basis. And so brother and proverb 17 and 22 tells us a joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones. And why is that such a crucial passage of scripture? Because when we become discouraged, there will be times when our spirit starts to dry up. Our spirit starts to dry up and there will be times when our strength is gone. We don't feel physically or emotionally or spiritually as strong as we once did. And what usually happens when that happens, we start to withdraw ourselves from one another. We start to withdraw from worship. We start through withdrawal from fellowships and Bible studies. We start to seclude ourselves in our homes. We start to cancel plans that we once enjoyed. Why? Because depression is setting in. And because I start to feel sorry for myself. And I start to allow all this constant stream of thoughts to be fueled by negativity instead of positivity. And so brother and when we look at this here this morning, once in a while, I'll sit down and I'll meet with various individuals and if you've been an elder or a minister for any length of time, you do counseling from time to time. Individually as well as Mary's and couple counseling. And sometimes after I'm done, I'll sit there for a few minutes. Sometimes I'll pray, sometimes I'll just take a few breaths. And I'm usually left astonished at the amount of hertz that people are dealing with in their lives. But they're not reaching out generally to others whom they have a good personal connection with for advice. Because too often, the advice they get is worldly advice. And not godly advice. And so brother and we think about this. All around us in our communities are various peoples. Various people who are dealing with marriage troubles. Marriages are falling apart. Finances are a mess. They're worried about their jobs. They're worried about their kids. They're worried about the sin in their lives. They have regrets huge regrets from things they've done in the past. Their health isn't when it used to be. Their life, the life that they live in our lives that we live have a way of wearing us down. And when we become discouraged, when we become disappointed and depressed, what do we usually do? We seclude ourselves. That's exactly what Satan wants you to do. Say it and want you to think that nobody cares. He wants you to think that you're not as important. He wants you to think that you're kind of like the oddball out now, and he wants you to start to pull away from the church. He wants you to start to pull away from family members. Start to pull away from various friends. Rather, and when we start complaining and feeling sorry for ourselves, Satan begins to win. Because our faith begins to suffer. And when our faith begins to suffer, well, then we start to find excuses about why we can't make it to worship. Why we can't make it the Bible study. Why we can't make it to church fellowship opportunities. And why we stop actually fellowship being with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Satan begins to win if he could get you to seclude yourself off from the brethren. It's sad when that happens, brother, because that's when we need each other the most. God calls us to be a unified body of believers. And that seclusion is should be the last thing that ever happens. We should never be secluding ourselves from one another. Instead of secluding ourselves, we need to come to God. We need to rely on his strength and we need to rely on the strength of the saints that are sitting in this pew here this morning. And so when you're struggling here at Lincoln park, don't seclude yourself off. Don't start to miss and forsake worship service and Bible study and fellowship opportunities. We probably had a dozen people, maybe 12, 15 people had showed up at the Kaggle berry farms yesterday. We had a great time the ones who showed up. And if you weren't there, you could have had a great time too if you were there. Brother and so I encourage you to take advantage of it as many of those type of opportunities as you can. I know sometimes life gets in a way and you can't attend every event, but you should try your best to attend as many of the fellowship opportunities as you can. And so when we look at this, remember what Jesus said why is it so very important that we and that we show the love to one another that we encourage one another that we lift up one another? Because Jesus said in John chapter 13 of her 35, he says your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples. And so brother and were to be a bright light in the world a world of darkness and sin and of depression and rising suicidal rates, people need to see that there's something different about us here at Lincoln park. There's something different about the way we carry ourselves. The joy that we have, even in difficult moments, knowing that even though when we lose a loved one, that we could take joy and comfort knowing that they're in Paradise that they went on to receive the reward, selfishly, yes, we want to hold on to them. And we want their for as long as we can. But they're now in a place that we all desire to get to. And so we can find the level of comfort in that, even though we're still sad. And so brother and we think of the word of God, we think of how we need to love one another and times of difficulty and the times of joy. We need to cry at each other's shoulders and lift each other up. We need to be willing to laugh with each other and to do all that life all that happens in life. Together as a unified body, constantly encouraging one another because that will show the world that we're Jesus's disciples. It makes me think of what the apostle Paul had to say. The way that we could show our love for Christ is by loving others without reservation. And first, thessalonians in chapter 5 and adverse 11, it tells us that we are to encourage one another. Encourage one another and build each other up just as they were already doing. But he gives us as a reminder. Some of us do a great job of building each other up and encouraging one another. I mentioned what Randy does for me every Wednesday and Sunday. Every time I preach a lesson, every time I do a Bible study, he always has a word of encouragement. It makes me think of calcium, who's gone out to his reward when I was an Allen park. A wonderful brother in Christ. That man encouraged me and encouraged me and encouraged me constantly. And what a joy he was to my life. Because there are days where there were days where I didn't feel like I did my best. I didn't feel like I presented the message to the best of my ability. Then maybe I could have done more at times. And yet he finds ways to lift you up into encourage you when he was on this earth. And why do we do that? So others can know that we are the disciples of Christ. And so brother and I makes me think of a Jesus had to say.

"All right, just doesn't sound the same as what it normally is. So Jim is gonna turn me up a little bit. If you look on the screen behind me, this morning's lesson is gonna go into new direction. We've done a series of sermons over the last couple months, looking at first and second Peter. And why those letters were written why they're important, but now I want us to look at something else here this morning. You think we live in a time when we might need a little extra encouragement? You think there's some frustration in society? Do you think there's some problems in life? Is anybody tired of the pandemic? Right, we're tired of the pandemic. Life is difficult, life is busy. Our careers are hobbies, our children. I mean, we run ourselves ragged and I want us to really stop and consider for a little bit about encouragement. I want us to really look at the art of encouragement. I tell you what, here at Lincoln park, I think we do a pretty darn good job when it comes to encouragement. We have lots of us within this auditorium who like to like to encourage. I've said before, I said, Randy's got almost like my burnaby. You know why I say that? Every Sunday and every Wednesday, even now that I'm down a Tennessee and I do my lesson and I summed it up here for you guys. I still get a text from him on most Wednesdays, encourage me about the lesson. And it'll always make sure he comes up to me afterwards and gives me some form of encouragement about the lesson. And every time I see him, he's trying to offer encouragement. And I love that because really, isn't that really what the Bible calls us to do? How can we become that unified body of believers that family a believers if we're not always looking for ways to grow in the area of encouragement? And although we do a good job here at Lincoln park, we can always be better, right? And there's some of us that probably do some more encouraging than well, probably others. And so that's what I want us to concentrate on here this morning. I want us to think of encouragements. And I'm sorry that Jim used a slide that replicates and kind of really looks like me this morning. I didn't ask him to do that. But I wanted it to be an encouragement for you all to know that you chew. Can look like that if you just put a little time in the gym. So while we look at this, like this life have a way of kind of just bringing us down, right? Life has a way of weariness down. And when we become discouraged what usually is one of the some of the first things that happen when we become discouraged, what's one of the first things I usually have. And what do you think, Russ? Faith? Face starts to kind of wander a little bit, but don't we also start to start complaining a little bit? Anybody here ever complain? Anybody here have some difficult days and you start to complain? Well, that is usually something that starts to happen. We start to feel sorry for ourselves. Has anybody during the pandemic? Kind of followed yourself complaining and feeling sorry for yourselves? Has anybody who watches the regular news, whether a local or national news, do you start to kind of complain and feel sorry for yourself? It starts to feel sorry for this nation. And so brother and we need to know that complaining and feeling sorry for ourselves is something that's really inherent in humanity. But it doesn't have to be. Because there's this little stream of thoughts that go through your head all the time. And psychologists in them they'll call it self talk. And you get to determine that little stream of thoughts as I'm speaking right now. There are some of you that have a stream of thoughts that are going through your mind, some of them may be focused on encouragement, some of it might be focused on something else completely that has nothing to do with this worship service. But there's always thoughts going through our mind. You get to determine if they're positive or negative. You get to determine what you're doing with that little stream of thoughts that's constantly going through your mind. And so in today's world, it appears that everyone is becoming more and more connected. Well, you think about it, most people have smartphones. Most kids nowadays have smartphones. And it would appear that through social media and all the various platforms that were more connected than at any other time in human history. What's the problem with that? We're becoming more and more disconnected, personally. In the flesh, personal relationships. One on one fellowship time. Why? Because I got 700 Facebook friends. Even though I haven't seen probably 678 of them in 25 years, I got 700 Facebook friends. Even though I have no idea what's going on in their lives, I have 700 some Facebook friends. I really don't. But I'm sure there are people out there that do. What's my point? I don't care how many Facebook friends you have. If you're not interacting on a one on one, face to face in the person and the flesh relationships and interaction with people. While we are more connected at this point in time from a technological standpoint at any other time in our history of the world, we are dealing with higher levels of depression and higher levels of suicide than at any other time. Well, how could that be? We got all these social media things that people love my posts and they think my posters are funny and they think they're so great and I have all these social media friends and I have this great social media following. And yet, I'm suffering with depression. And suicidal thoughts. Well, how can that be? Brethren has God designed us to be separate and apart from one another or did God intend for us to become to spend time together. The God desire for children to leave their mothers or fathers and for sons, find a wife, it's a cleave to their wife and become one flesh, both in mind, body and spirit. When God created mankind on the 6th day, and then we know in genesis chapter two, when God created man, he said, it is not good for man to be alone. When you want to punish somebody in the judicial system in the system, where do they put the criminals when they really want to punish them? It's solitary confinement. Why? Because we know as human beings we're designed got designed us in order to be in fellowship with one another. So the worst thing you could do to a criminal is to separate them from the masses. And to make him be in an area that he's by himself. Why? Because what usually sets starts to set in regrets and depression and all these other things that go along with it. So as I said earlier today. I don't care how many Facebook friends that somebody has. It will never make up for the lack of personal in the flesh relationships with individuals. And brother, and that's something that we need to really fully consider. Because we're made with the desire to connect with people on a personal level. Don't people feel good about themselves when they feel like they belong? I mean, those doesn't it feel good after, and then I know sometimes we don't always want to break up our routine break up our schedule and schedule some fellowship time or go visit somebody. But how many times, even though you really didn't want to do it, but after you did it, you felt so much better. Like, man, I'm glad I went out of my way and I went and met with so and so because I actually, I actually enjoyed it. I felt good about it. And so we have to remember rather than that, while we are connected more from a technological standpoint, we're less connected personally and one on one basis than at any other time in our history. Young kids are having trouble because they have a hard time knowing how to talk with one another nowadays. I can't tell you every time you go to a restaurant every time you're out in public, you'll see a family of 5 sitting around the table and they're all on their phones, doing this. They're not even talking. They're not even enjoying the people that are literally right there in their presence. I had a friend who used to come by once in a while. And so some of the Christian fellowships over my house. And he would always be playing words with Friends. Anybody play words with Friends? And he would be playing words with Friends while we're all setting their talking. I said, why don't you use your words with your Friends? I mean, we're literally sitting three feet from one another and you're playing a game on your phone..

"I don't know if i could have a better introduction. Thank you matt now. The pressure's on. I wanna share with you this morning. The theme for walker water this year. And then we're gonna take that from talking about walk into. I think a thing that we can all relate to we. We talk about the word change. That's a scary word for some of us change but before we get into this morning for those of you like what in the world has walked for water. Well if you haven't been here for the last twelve years that your new than this being the thirteenth walk for water. Maybe this will help understand so last year and this year we've gone with the theme chains the cycle and you'll have shirts in some of your wearing the shirts and on the back or four icons and that is what to look at those real quick because when you wear the shirt you blast questions. I don't want to be like. Oh i don't know where to shirt comfortable. There's four logos on their done. What you like. The first one is the need for those who struggle to have water hunt daily basis that little person silhouette with the bucket turned over. Just a daily struggle that those around the world go through the don't have access easy access to clean. Water the icon is it comes down to the little of point you to two little silhouettes walking and that's what we're doing today. That's what you all have done for thirteen years including today. The nikon breezy around that water dropped with a nice little squiggly lines and that represents clean water. Which is why we walk for water. And then my favorite is. They're choreographing in the church of christ but the celebration the dancing that takes place at the will but also when we rejoice. So maybe this afternoon. When you're walking you get done. Walk in your four miles. You might still have energy to celebrate the fact that you're making a difference but ultimately that is and i've countless times when i've been to haiti in other places and i've seen someone at a will when the water pumps for the first time or if it's been repaired and flows again i've witnessed cure joy in that kind of celebration and then the aero. Obviously the cycle is changed. Now that cycle that we're talking about is a cycle that they get up every morning every afternoon. They'd take their journey that get dirty water. They get sick in the cycle starts over and over but with you all everyone else helping to change the cycle the cycle is broken and subtly. Thus who here this morning obviously here for common purpose we give the credit to god. And that's where the arrow points up. So that is what your shirt icon means and that is what we'll be doing today but i wanted to show you this for those of you have not worked lie. We walk could you imagine that is your water source. There's a lot of words that can be described but difficult insane dangerous but guess what's in there something. We need for life water. That looks yummy. I mentioned this class this morning. Kind of we kinda laughed. Because i know you guys experienced rainy and dry season but around the world. There's literally rainy and dry season. That is a riverbed in dry season. It'll continue. The water will continue to go down that a river bid many in the rainy season. Where you see brown is full of water is a river bid so the struggle is real but last year we worked together but we were still together and i just wanted to share a couple of memories last year. Madness had this deal still detention pitcher. But you all still found a way to walk for water in various locations. It looks like you walk in december tennessee. With all the geared murray. I don't know i. I usually look like that in october. When i come up for the ball and you guys are short. So i don't know must have been miller chillier and there you go just a flashback to show you it helps you remember the fine even though we're apart you still made that difference and that is what you walk for my favorite pitcher. We don't usually get that high quality photos back but in ghana there was a professional photographer taking pictures at some well. So so that is why we walked for water in the theme is change the cycle and this morning though. We're going to go down a different kind of theme with that. We're gonna talk about changing the cycle in our lives. I'm just gonna leave that up to the rest of the time you can see that in the background. But let me ask you this. When jesus came to this earth. Why did he come. You may very well say. He came to change the cycle in the gospel of john throughout the gospels. We read many accounts where we encountered jesus going into a situation and bringing chains do not specifically in john chapter five. Where we're gonna go to our story this morning to look if you want to go ahead and flip there. John chapter five but right there the chapter before john chapter four jesus encounters woman at the well bring change to her life change to that community then a chapter eight. Is you go on down. You see another counter where jesus brings change with. The woman caught in adultery when jesus encounters us change must take place when jesus encounters us. We have to ask. Are we willing to change. Now i'm gonna tell you this do do you like to change. Do you like change. No i want you to know and don't raise. Your hand confessed this morning but how many of you did not like the fact that some of your parking spots were blocked off. That is frustrating. Who is blocked. My how many of you come into church on a sunday morning. You look at somebody in your seat. I've sat there for twenty years. That's my seat. I don't change by sitting on the left side of the preacher looks different. We do not like change. So when we encounter jesus did he asked us to change our cycle. It's tough john chapter five. Let's go ahead and flip in our bibles they're fitting at a guy who works for an organization that his job is to talk about. Water would take you to the scene of water. John chapter five. We're gotta read versus through nine. Then we're going to focus on one part of the story now. There is in jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool. An aramaic called bethesda which has five five ruth colonnades in these lay a multitude of invalids. Why lane in paralyzed. One man was there who had been invoked. Kim it for thirty eight years when jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time. He said to him. Do you want to be heal. The sick man answered him sir. I have no one to put me into the end of the pool when the water is stirred up and while i'm going going another steps down before me. Jesus said to him.

"Individuals disciples of jesus christ who are not afraid to stand for the truth even if it brings this persecution even if it costs us a job even if it costs us family members even if it costs us friendships speak the truth. Never reject christ. Jesus and as i was reading on the plane yesterday as i was coming back from tennessee and i was reading about church history and they were talking about some of the murders and when they're talking about polycarp and it was at the end of his life he says for eight hundred six years. I have been blessed by the man that you are. You are encouraged me to curse. You want me to curse the man who has blessed me and taking care of me and provided for me for eighty six years. He says i'd rather go. I'd rather go to my death than ever curse or reject my christ jesus and reject the sacrifice that he made on my behalf. And there'd be have all mankind and they burn them at the stake brothers and sisters. We need to not be afraid to stand up for the truth. We must never be afraid for speaking out the truth in fear of retaliation or persecution. If you're hearing this message this morning and you need the prayers of the church. Let us pray for you. Let us know how we pray for you. Come forward this morning. The shepherds will be up here this morning. I'll be up here. We'll pray for you. We'll help you in any way that we can.

"She was laughing. But everybody's laughing. I'm so embarrassed. And you know what what it rustu. I'm gonna pull tom's here the next time we stood up. We went to sit down and tom landed up on the floor. My best friend and everybody laughed. And i laughed and i can even remember what room this took place in the flag. Shirts is just vivid in my mind and sister watson looked at me and said russ vengeance is suite isn't it and it was for about ten seconds on never forget that i love sister watson. She taught me a lesson. She didn't scream at me or yell at me or take me to my parents. I'll never forget her. And i'll never forget that. Say vengeance sweet. We have to think about our actions. Jesus did not retaliate. I should not have retaliate. But it sure was sweet for a minute but later on i was ashamed. I'd never shared this with my parents. I probably should have. But i didn't. I'm sharing with you this morning. But jesus didn't retaliate and we don't need to retali- because of the lord knows what he's when he suffered he made no threats whereas twenty-three he lifted himself up and spoke from the clock cross. He spoke about the people he spoke about what he was going through spoke to his father. He spoke to the thief on the cross but he never talked about his suffering. He didn't scream out his suffering. He didn't threaten people from the cross because he knew what was going to happen. You know one of the things that amazes me the most is if you go into the old testament read about the relationship between king saw and david david was in the court. He was playing this harp and what did saw do he picked up a spear that's right lewis and he threw it at david didn't he. He missed him. And do you know what david did nothing. Nothing somebody said nothing. He didn't throw the spear back. And i thought isn't that a great example for us christians. Don't throw the spear back. Don't get upset and you have that about. Jesus we've gotta hurry. We're almost done here. It steady and trust himself to him who judges justly. That's exactly what we're talking about a twenty three verse twenty three we have to entrust ourselves. God he's going to take care of it on the judgment day. Don't forget that that's what jesus did. He said i'm going to let god. I'm gonna let my father take care of this on the judgment day. I don't have to be god. I don't have to be a judge and in verse twenty three. Jesus entrusted himself to him who judges justly. That's powerful. If jesus can trust god to take care of him then maybe we should. Don't you think i just love that. Verse what peter saying. Christians give up the right to get even. That's what it comes down to chuck you have to give in. Don't give in to try to take engines. That's the one guy. I know he take vengeance right. We have to give that right up. Because god will take care of it. He's going to act on our behalf. That's what faces all about. If you really have faith in god doing it taking care of business. That's what faith is all about. The world says someone's gotta pay. We're going to pay back. We're going to take vengeance. I'm gonna get even. That's not what christian should do. That's what the world says. That's not what we need to say. No one gets away with anything. Put that down on that outline. Nobody gets away with anything with that in the back there and remember god's gonna take care of it. He's going to take care of his time is coming. His action is coming and when we have faith enough to realize that will entrust to him. He's going to do it. That'll make us feel so much. Better fact enrollments. Chapter twelve verse. Fourteen says i will repay. Who do you think you are trying to pay people back. Those are words for russ in second grade. I should said that. Let the lord take care of these things. I don't think the lord cares about that. Cherubini pulled out from under me. He has more important things on his mind. Don't you so let's trust. Let's let him do it. Let's let him repay for us unforgiving and this is what happens. Unforgiving hinders our prayers are singing. Our lord's supper are giving our worship. Our marriage our life our children everything is affected because of this and not only that but it makes our life miserable when you have to repay somebody for something it takes a lot of planning and we have to get back at them and we have to get angry and we have to make things happen and try to organize our lives so we can repay them. That makes her whole life miserable. That's why i wanted to think about this as we close. I want you to think about what the lord did because this is. What's.

"In our sunday morning bible studies. It's because that's how we're going to be judged we're going to be judged by the new testament. God has said the times of ignorance over and he is sent his sons dying on the cross. He's given us the complete revelation he tells us how the story ends. We know that jesus has already has the victory. The question is do we want to tag along and be included in that victory if we do then with jesus comes with his winnowing fork in the threshing floor to separate the wheat from the shaft. We have to ask ourselves. Do you want to be the wheats or the chef. Because the sheriff is going to be going into the birds up. So we understand in verse. Three god has given us granted to us all that we need through the complete revelation of god and he tells us as we go on here through the true knowledge of jesus who called us by his own glory and excellence for by these. He has granted to us as his precious and magnificent promises. So that by them you may become partake of the divine nature. Having escaped the corruption. That is in the world by lust. You look at verse four and it says he has granted to us his precious his magnificent promises brother. You guys have heard me talking about faith before amen. And you've heard me give you the definition of faith and i've often said faith real biblical faith is is threefold. You have to come to the word of god. You have to fake from hearing hearing from the word god romans sense seventeen right but it doesn't end there. You have to hear the word to determine if you believe it so it starts with hearing that it started with trusting and then it starts and then it ends with obedience you have to trust in those great magnificent promises that he's talking about right here in verse four so verse three is telling us we look at these and we break these verses down verse. Three is telling us that humans can know god only by the degree that god has revealed himself to us his revealed himself to humanity in. Why do i say that well did. God give the profits when they came the whole story or did he give them little little tidbits of information. He gave them tidbits of revelation a prophecy to pass onto the jews. And so that we can look back to see when prophecy will be fulfilled. Its so we know that now. We have the complete revelation of god. We know how the story is. We know how the story began. We know that jesus is the seed line. Jesus is the one that was gonna come from the seed line from the tribal judah of the family of david and for what purpose the save mankind from their sins and this was a plan that was put in place since before. The foundation of the world is so for god so free humans we can only know god to the extent that he had revealed himself. For example we can know the goddess creative. We can know that he's powerful. We can know that he's wise just by looking at creation but we can't know through creation is that god doesn't reveal recreation doesn't reveal what god thinks creation doesn't reveal with god wants for man creation doesn't reveal what the future will be with the spiritual world will be like it's a we're limited in what we can know from creation. We could see that there is a guy through creation that there is a designer because there's designed in nature but that's about the limit of what we can know in order for us to know more about god. He has to reveal himself to mankind. And we have that revelation through jesus christ through the holy spirit who jesus said he was going to send john chapters fourteen in john chapter sixteen for what purpose so that he could. The holy spirit would remind. The early disciples the early apostles everything that got ever sudden. Did everything that jesus ever saw and everything that he ever did. And so the knowledge of these things is only available to the point or the extended god reveals it. Well what did it say in verse theory. You go back and you look at it. And what did the same verse three seeing that his divine power has what granted to us everything that we need that pertains to life ansa godliness. Brethren all the information that humanity needs to live a good and godly life to be found acceptable in the eyes of jesus christ in the day of judgement is contained in the new testament. So when i ask you the question why is it important that we study out the new testament because it all begins and ends there because we're new testament christian so we don't follow the law because we don't we didn't live under the old law and the old law wasn't for us it was only for the jews and so you look at this information and as we continue on brother at true knowledge gives us access true knowledge of god and his revelation gives us access to godliness. It gives us access to spiritual living a spiritual life and that's why we said earlier that there needs to be a transformation that is taking place as you read as you study the word of god and he's you become more knowledgeable in the word of god you make sure you transform your life in versus five through eleven. Peter is going to describe as we continue on. He's going to describe what man's part is knowing. God he's also going to describe how this affects our life and how it's going to affect our salvation. So peters going to explain that growth is a process. Well what is the process. A process as a series of steps that build upon one another amen. It's it's a series of steps that build upon one another should there notch chew. We not see a growth. Transformation it a transformation be taking place in the lives of every child of god. Let's continue on now as we look at versus five through seven. His second peter one five or seven. Notice what it says now for this. Very reason. also apply diligence. All diligence in your faith supply moral excellence and in your moral excellence knowledge and in your knowledge self control your self control perseverance and your perseverance brotherly kindness or godliness your godliness brotherly kindness and then you brotherly kindness love. Peter tells us at the process of knowing god begins with what diligence it begins with diligence effort commitments resolved resolving commitments or want to the process to the process of transforming our lives to become the type of man and woman that god is desired us to be to become righteous in holy in his sight. That is the transformation process that we're not. We're not viewed as.
