I am sure you have heard the statement by Edmund Burke that “Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.” You have probably heard the United States being compared to the Roman Empire.

“Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the ‘new, wonderful good society’ which shall now be Rome, interpreted to mean money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious. ‘” – Marcus Tullius Cicero.

The Roman Empire was split in two by Constantine with two capitals. Over time, the east thrived, while the west declined. In fact, after the western part…

God's Got This ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ photo IBible Verses

God’s got this,
He has a handle on it
and I know to me . .
it’ll be a benefit.

I know better than,
to do this on my own
for I know if I did . . .
I’d complain and moan.

God’s got this,
I’ve given it to Him . . .
even though right now
things are looking grim.

He will make something,
beautiful out of this . . .
if I get in His way
His blessing I will miss.

God’s got this,
it’s entirely in His hand
and one day this too . . .
I will come to understand!

and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the
righteous to be moved.”

Faith And Holiness

“If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.” Galatians 5:25 (NASB)
“The two most important things in our holy religion are the life of faith and the walk of faith. He who shall rightly understand these is not far from being a master in experimental theology, for they are vital points to a Christian. You will never find true faith unattended by true godliness; and on the other hand, you will never discover a truly holy life which has not for its root a living faith upon the righteousness of Christ. Woe unto those who seek after the one without the other! There are some who cultivate faith and forget holiness; these may be very high in orthodoxy, but they shall be very deep in condemnation, for they hold the truth in unrighteousness; and there are others who have strained after holiness of life, but have denied the faith, like the Pharisees of old, of whom the Master said, they were ‘whitewashed sepulchers.’ We must have faith, for this is the foundation; we must have holiness of life, for it is the superstructure. Of what service is the mere foundation of a building to a man in the day of tempest? Can he hide himself therein? He wants a house to cover him, as well as a foundation for that house. Even so we need the superstructure of spiritual life if we would have comfort in the day of doubt. But seek not a holy life without faith, for that would be to erect a house which can afford no permanent shelter, because it has no foundation on a rock. Let faith and life be put together, and, like the two abutments of an arch, they will make our piety enduring. Like light and heat streaming from the same sun, they are alike full of blessing. Like the two pillars of the temple, they are for glory and for beauty. They are two streams from the fountain of grace; two lamps lit with holy fire; two olive trees watered by heavenly care. . .”
Charles H. Spurgeon
