God cannot sustain this free and blessed country, which we love and pray for, unless the Church will take right ground. Politics are a part of a religion in such a country as this, and Christians must do their duty to the country as a part of their duty to God. — Reverend Charles G. Finney, Minister in the Second Great Awakening.

Going For The Gold, Silver and Precious Stones for Almighty God’s Glory!

February 8, 2014   ·   By   ·   0 Comments

gold_medalIn the “spirit” of the Olympics; many have trained and have anticipated this present week for years. These individuals have worked extremely hard and have made countless sacrifices to maintain their competitive edge. Finally, all of their hard work and effort has paid off and they are ready to compete. These individuals have subjected their bodies under strict disciple with one goal and one prize in their vision: the gold medal. Oh beloved, how much more should Almighty God’s children(John 1:12) run the race – which is before them – for ETERNAL glory and an ETERNAL prize.

At Christ’s Judgment Seat for the saints the rewards will be handed out and the “well done My faithful servant” will be given to those who have run the race and went for the gold for Almighty God’s glory (2 Cor 3:10-20).

Sad to say, many will be ashamed in His Presence in that day. They will have NEGLECTED their Heavenly calling for the temporal delights and comforts that this fallen world has to offer. They will be saved by fire but with nothing to show for God’s glory (1 Cor. 3:12-18).

The victory is gained when a person puts his or her faith and trust in the Person of Almighty God. As believers in Christ, we can by faith go for the gold and win the victory through the many faceted adversities and calamities that comes our way. We know that God indeed loves us and has a wonderful plan and purpose in our lives to make us winners, not losers.

Listen to this promise: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose (Romans 8:26).

Almighty God has a wonderful plan for you and wants you to be a winner!

In these last days may we be strong and of good courage and have faith in Almighty God. May we see – with the eyes of faith – past this physical world into the very throne room of Heaven, and be more than a conqueror in Christ and for Christ. May we go for all that Almighty God has called us to be for His Glory.

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Plil. 4:13)!

“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses” (1Tim 6:12)!

“Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place” (2 Cor. 2:14)!

“But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Cor. 15:57)!

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through himthat loved us” (Romans 8:37)!

“Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to theglory of God” (1 Cor.10:31)!

“For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto theglory of God by us” (2 Cor. 1:20)!

“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath preparedfor them that love him” (1 Cor. 2:9)!

“Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing” (2 Tim 4:8)!

“Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place” (2 Cor. 2:14).

Remember, Beloved: “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you [i.e., Christ], than he that is in the world [i.e., Satan and his minions]” (1 John 4:4).

Now go for the gold beloved for Almighty God’s glory!! God speed!!

The Ten Commandments

Today many persons have a great misunderstanding in thinking that if they follow Christianity they don’t have liberty. That is far from the truth. In fact, Christianity when followed correctly brings liberty – not bondage.

Marriage Still Matters

Ken Connor

Marriage still matters. Historically, marriage – marriage between one man and one woman – has been the foundation of civil society. It is this unique relationship that has produced children, secured the inter-generational transmission of values, provided a solid foundation for the economy and security for women and children, etc. Marriage is and always has been more than the sum of its parts, more than a mere social convention.

Environmentalism Hurts Poor Families Worst

Tom Toth

One of the largest energy providers in New England announced recently that energy costs for a typical household could increase 37% over last year. For many poorer families, that $40 per month increase will force a choice between purchasing enough food to feed a cold family or warming the bedrooms they return to — malnourished, or suffering otherwise from a lack of household resources to fund Obama’s jihad on affordable energy.

How to Defeat the Left: Understand the Enemy

I plan to share a few excerpts from David Horowitz' new book "Take No Prisoners: The Battle Plan for Defeating the Left." over the coming days, in the hopes that Republicans and conservatives might become enlightened--or at least more informed--about the nature of our current conflict, that they will buy a copy of the book, and read it...and then get to work.

Sex Trafficking Is Big Business: Our Dirty Little Secret

John W. Whitehead

It is estimated that there are 100,000 to 150,000 under-aged sex workers in the U.S. The average age of girls who enter into street prostitution is between 12 and 14 years old, with some as young as 9 years old. This doesn’t include those who entered the “trade” as minors and have since come of age. Rarely do these girls enter into prostitution voluntarily. As one rescue organization estimated, an underaged prostitute might be raped by 6,000 men during a five-year period of servitude.This is America’s dirty little secret.

We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
