Shopping on the 2A battlefield

The Liberty First Foundation

Before my transformation into a gun rights activist, I used the internet for normal people things. I searched for worthless info, I enjoyed a good video now and then, and occasionally posted on social media platforms. I never really thought about what my actions meant, and I thought very little about protecting my 2nd Amendment rights.

Now I routinely scour social media for the latest tidbits of info and consider myself a front-line soldier in the war against the right to bear arms. This has shaped the way I approach many ways of life, some good (I am more prone to carry a firearm) and some negative (I get grumpy after reading too much news). It has made me re-think some of my life choices. Many of the choices have to do with how I spend my time, and my money, both of which may go a longer way to…

Minnesota: Muslims say they will show their power next week at Vikings stadium

Refugee Resettlement Watch

“There’s been nothing else like this, promoted anywhere in the United States which is a message in and of itself.”

(Minnesota resident Bob Carrillo)

But, it isn’t too late for Minnesotans and others to tell the powers-that-be at the US Bank Stadium that you object to the event—an event that celebrates the ritual slaughter of animals.

The Secret Plan of Muslims to Sneak Tens of Thousands Into the U.S. Bank Stadium for a Historic “Show of Power” in Minnesota

There is a secret plan to literally sneak fifty thousand Muslims into the Minnesota Vikings US Bank Stadium.

Well it’s called EID AL ADHA – Feast of the Sacrifice.

Seeing Thorns as Blessings……..

Seeing Thorns as Blessings

August 16

“To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me” (2 Cor. 12:7).

Have you ever had something in your life you wish was not there? If God gave you one wish, perhaps it would be to change that one thing. Perhaps it is the source of pain or challenge in your life. You seek God continually for relief from it, but He seems strangely silent.

Paul also experienced an ongoing burden that he called a “thorn in [his] flesh.” Bible scholars have speculated as to what this thorn might have been, but no one knows for sure. We do know that it was so hurtful to Paul that he asked God on three different occasions to remove it from his life:

To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong (2 Cor. 12:7-10).

Paul had a great calling on his life. The revelations and faith experiences that God gave him would have been too much for any man’s humility. So God, in order to insure His investment in Paul’s life, allowed this man a thorn in his flesh to help him maintain a humble, godly perspective.

Perhaps God has given you such a thorn designed to allow you to place greater trust and reliance upon Him. Ask God to reveal to you the blessing of the thorn He has placed in your life.

The bloom of a rose is beautiful, but the thorn of a rose produces only pain. Thorns hurt us yet they humble us. That is the blessing of thorns.

Transferring the Ownership……………

Transferring the Ownership
For reading & meditation – Genesis 22:1-19
“… because you … have not withheld your son, your only son, I will surely bless you …” (vv. 16-17)

We referred yesterday to the man who was broken by a financial disaster, but came out of it enabled to say, “Never again will I be broken by material loss.” And why? Because he built for himself a biblical framework which enabled him to see the whole issue of finances from God’s point of view. Here are the steps my friend took in moving from financial bondage to financial freedom. (1) In a definite act of commitment, transfer the ownership of all your possessions to God. Whether we acknowledge it or not, we do not in reality own our possessions. We are stewards, not proprietors, of the assets which God puts into our hands. After reading the story of Abraham and his willingness to sacrifice his son, my friend got alone with God and offered every single one of his possessions to the Lord. He said, “I continued in prayer until every single item I had was laid on God’s altar, and when it was over I was a transformed man. That act of dedication became the transformation point in my finances.” If, in reality, we do not own our possessions, then the obvious thing to do is to have the sense to say to God: “Lord, I’m not the owner, but the ower. Teach me how to work out that relationship for as long as I live.” When you let go of your possessions and let God have full control, the whole issue of stewardship becomes meaningful. You are handling something on behalf of Another. Money is no longer your master – it becomes instead your messenger.
Prayer: Father, I’m conscious that, once again, You have Your finger on another sensitive spot. I wince, but I know I can never be a true disciple until I make this commitment. I do it today – gladly. For Your own dear Name’s sake. Amen
