We have proclaimed to the world our determination ‘to die freemen, rather than to live slaves’ … we have appealed to heaven for the justice of our cause, and in heaven have we placed our trust. Numerous have been the manifestations of God’s providence in sustaining us — Samuel Adams

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 Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

GOP ‘Surrender Caucus’ Sounds Horn of Aggressive Retreat

You know it's bad when the so-called "leaders" of a party harbor such pure contempt for their base that they are willing to drag the good name of their own party through the mud in an attempt to undermine that base. Yet that is where we are with this latest report from the RINOs.

Thinking Reasonably Part 2

Dale Pflug

Did you ever have someone tell you that something was too political, or that they hate to discuss politics? If you mention the word politics, you will probably offend at least one person in any group. To shut off a conversation, just say “sorry, but I don’t talk about politics”.

One Guaranteed Way to Kill the Church in America

Steve Deace

Suppose you wanted to eradicate your opposition. However, you wanted to do so in a way that avoided any blowback, and lulled your opposition to sleep so that they wouldn’t know what hit them until it was too late. Rather than a full-frontal assault, you might try subtlety instead. Say, the introduction of a lie that became repeated so often by those with influence it was accepted as truth. Despite the fact all of the actual hard evidence says to the contrary it is not.

Instruction on How to Speak Leftist

Bob Ellis

The Revolting Truth has some instruction for us on how to speak Leftist. It is somewhat reminiscent of my Guide to LiberalSpeak, compiled after many years of interactions with liberals and intended to help the less-experienced conservative filter through the propaganda and nonsense that makes up 99% of liberal "thought."

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. 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
