Keep Climbing Higher!

And you shall remember that the Lord your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not. 3 So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord. 4 Your garments did not wear out on you, nor did your foot swell these forty years. 5 You should know in your heart that as a man chastens his son, so the Lord your God chastens you. Deuteronomy 8:2-5, NKJV

Your mountain of adversity is God's University which prepares and equips you for your life's destiny. So study God's word diligently, learn to pray fervently and trust Him relentlessly. You will be blessed to pass each and every test. Just look to Jesus Christ, He's the One , He's the best. He&#…

Daniel and Revelation Unsealed!

And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy…

Colonial sins return to haunt former world powers: Commentary

Colonial sins return to haunt former world powers

I read this article with interest because I believe in social justice and in restoring those who have been wronged.  While there is literally no amount of money that can begin to compensate the victims of inhumane, cruel treatment, torture, rape, and brutality, the concept of restoration and reparation is a symbolic gesture in which the perpetrators freely acknowledge their wrongdoing and seek to make their victims and/or their survivors and descendants, whole.
