In vain, without the Bible, we increase penal laws and draw entrenchments around our institutions. Bibles are strong entrenchments. Where they abound, men cannot pursue wicked courses, and at the same time enjoy quiet conscience. — James McHenry, Signer of the Declaration of Independence

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!

What Happened to the Gold Standard?

David John Marotta

A gold standard helps protect a currency from rampant inflation. The Fed could perform this function only if it could somehow display perfect self-control. Such an ideal may never occur and will never last when the temptation and incentives for the Fed to manipulate other parts of the economy are so great. Reform is necessary to protect our currency.

Would We the People Ratify the Constitution Today?

Dr. Robert R. Owens

We the People are the opening words of the preamble to the Constitution. Many patriots glory in that name, “We the People” holding it aloft as a banner against the encroachments of an ever expanding central government. In the minds of many, it is connected somehow to Lincoln’s famous description of America’s government, “Of the People, by the people and for the people.”

He’s Not There!

Paula Dagnel

During the time of the early Church, when one believer would greet another, he would say “He is risen!” And the other believer would respond “He is risen, indeed!” I’d love to see that brought back to the present day; and if not every time we greet our fellow believer, at the very least, on this Easter weekend.

"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
