This is the Truth Network. Welcome to Truth Network. The Truth Network. The born-again body of Christ.
The vision we have at Running With Horses is to influence all three. To have a voice, to bring an awareness, and to make known the supernatural intervention of God in the lives of people because He is God. And His love for every individual, no matter what group, is that great. That His capacity for miracles, signs, and wonders would be on demonstration, in demonstration, spotlighted in every place. That there would be a compelling voice, you know, to be heard with something to say. You know, we need to have something to say. Something that is relative, that relates, but also does not bring about, in any way, a diminishing of the greatness of the Almighty God.
I can't say it enough. He is the Almighty God. And so, I would love to hear your feedback, because honestly, sometime, often, as I pray before we initiate the recording of this podcast, I know that the vision here is strong, concerning this supernatural part of God's nature. It is His character. And the reason I say so is that, you know, He spoke the world into existence.
Actually, the word is plural. Worlds, so, more than one world, all of creation. He did that with His voice. He also spoke into existence light. He separated the day from the night. He caused the firmament to separate into waters and dry land. All of that depiction in the book of Genesis, in the opening chapters of Genesis, that is the Genesis of the revelation of our God to people, to the Jews, to the Gentiles, that is the non-Jews, and the non-churched world, and the church world, the born-again body of Christ.
Three distinctions. In that regard, we believe here that everything that we say carries a prophetic anointing, that is to say, the way that God moves through the voice that He has given us is to move people from where they are to where they need to be, to provide help for that, assistance for that. Something that we say or relate or convey in any way would bring about a forward movement, actually an upward movement, in the way that we grow and accelerate in our walk with the Lord. So the prophetic aspect is the very essence of the calling that we have in our ministry.
So that's important. Secondly, we see discipleship as absolutely, completely imperative to the life of the believer. So that would be the concern of that group, the Church of God. So of the three groups, the Jews, the Gentiles, the Church of God, concerning the Church of God, discipleship in our lives, not just at the beginning of our walk with the Lord, but throughout our lives. So important, so valuable so that there is the prophetic aspect, the prophetic anointing, the prophetic call that we believe God has given to this ministry. Also, the effect and the prioritizing of discipleship for those that are in our path.
That is a goal. We're looking for a way to do that. I'll have more to say about that in the coming episodes. But then thirdly, we love Israel. We love the Jewish people. And the reason we do is because God said to. He said to. We are students of His Word.
And He said to do that. And so that's what we do. And so we direct our thoughts, our prayers and intercessions, our prioritizing to the nation state of Israel, all that that means, but the Jewish people and the land God gave them in particular. These three things, the prophetic calling, the emphasis on discipleship and the life of the believer, and then a caring, a heart for Israel and the Jewish people. And so this word out of 1 Corinthians that anything that we do, whether we eat or we drink in the context that we're talking about today, we do that for the glory of God.
Meaning we think, we stop and think before we do something. Does it edify the hearer? Does it edify those who are around observing? Does it glorify the Lord? You could actually say that is a priority for my life. I know that it is a priority for the lives of many people that I know and admire. Does this glorify the Lord?
I know what I want to do. I know what I think would be advantageous or cool, but that said, does it glorify the Lord? So whether you eat or drink, whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God. And don't give offense to Jews or Gentiles or the church of God, the three people groups that are in the earth. According to the word, the Lord sees three groups and you are in one of the three. You're either grouped with the Jews, with the Gentiles or with the born again church of God, one of the three. And so my desire for this podcast is of course to put a spotlight on the way that the supernatural element in my life and the supernatural element in your life equates to the story, the Old Testament account of how the Spirit of God came upon the prophet Elijah and he was able, because of that empowerment, the presence of God, the hand of God, because of what happened to him, he could run faster than the horse.
Of course, that meaning that the horse was pulling Ahab's chariot and the chariots that were with him in his company and the man, Elijah, arrived back at the city before the horses did, therefore before Ahab and his company did. That influence in your life, that influence in my life is our focus when we say running with horses, that that is the element in our life that we do not want to become unfamiliar or diminished in some way, that the spotlight on that aspect of who we are as believers would diminish because frankly it can be. It can be diminished. We can become so thoughtful and so intellectually savvy, so theologically correct, and so individually accomplished that we rule that out. We don't think about it as much. Well, we don't really think about it at all because after all, who is talking about that? It's not really politically correct and in some places it can really get you into trouble.
It can actually get you banned because it's not considered socially graceful to talk about those kinds of things. But believe me, in the courts of heaven, this emphasis has not diminished at all. It's increasing around the throne of God, increasing in the heart of the Father, in the mind of the Spirit, and in the working of Jesus Christ in my life and yours, increasing. Increasing. You just have to remember that.
The Bible word that comes to my mind is selah. You know, pause and think of that and go, wow, that's really something. I think it's a wow. I think it's big.
So that's what I'm doing. And I'd love to know what you think about it. I'd love to know if it affects you, if it builds you up and edifies you.
If you have suggestions, that would be great too. We are at the end of the summer of this year, nearing the end of the summer, so headed into another season. And I remember last year this time, about this time, one year ago, we began communicating with The Truth Network, and that conversation led to other conversations that led to launching this podcast. And so we believed in our ministry, those of us who pray about what to do and not do to impact your life and bless you and others that we haven't heard from yet or do not yet know, but that we will. And those who are at The Truth Network, we prayerfully entered this arrangement, and we believed that God had great things in mind.
And therefore here we are today. About seven months into this podcast, this episode is to reach out to you and ask for your honest and your thoughtful response. In the show notes today, there will be specific ways for you to respond, and we'd love if you could take the time to rate the podcast, leave a comment or a review. You can do that at several places.
We're going to outline that for you in the show notes. It isn't difficult, and for those of you who are very aware of doing that kind of thing, I find that in the generations, some generations are more acquainted with that. Some of the folks that are 20-something, 30-something, 40-something, they're very familiar with leaving a rating, leaving a review or a comment, and they don't hesitate to say something that you might consider maybe constructive criticism.
That's good too. We want to hear from you. And for those that are in a different generation, maybe a little older, this might be a great learning curve. But regardless, any time we get a concrete response from you like that, it lets the platforms where we operate know that you are engaged because you appreciate this content. And that makes a big difference in the way that we are able then to resonate on those platforms. So it's not hard, and it doesn't take a long time, but it makes a big difference.
Let me say that another way. I shouldn't say it doesn't take a long time. I should say it actually only takes minutes. And if you've never done it before, it's good to know. It's good to engage this way in the areas, other areas even, where you are online and engaged. So either way, we need to hear from you.
I personally want to. It means so much to hear from you. To know that what we do here resonates with you, makes a difference, brings about change for you personally, and elevates you in some way because it edifies you on some level, means everything to me, makes it worth it to spend time in preparation and prayer to deliver that kind of content. 1 Corinthians 10 verse 31, whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, if you're making a podcast, if you're communicating content locally, nationally, or to the whole world, whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God. And when you do, remember three groups of people that are in the heart of God, the born again church of God, the Jewish people, including the state of Israel and the land, the God given land of Israel and the Gentiles, those who do not yet know God personally, but who are destined to do just that. If you fall into one of those three groups, God says you do, then we care about you. Let us hear from you. We have the mind of Christ. That means we have the thought life of the King. Amen. Amen.
