Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Forget Not All His Benefits
God wants you to remember all the benefits that Jesus has purchased for you with His blood! It is His heart to see you enjoying every single benefit, every single blessing and every single favor from Him in the new covenant of His grace. Forgiveness of sins is yours. Health is yours. Divine protection is yours. Favor is yours. Good things and the renewal of youth are yours! These are all precious gifts from the Lord to you, and it brings Him unspeakable joy when He sees you enjoying these gifts and succeeding in life.
What we need today are not more laws to govern believers. What we need is a greater revelation and appreciation of Jesus and everything that He has done for us! In Hosea 4:6, God lamented, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge...” Let’s not be numbered among these people. Instead, let us be a people who are full of the knowledge of Jesus, His person, His love and His finished work.
Beloved, don’t allow your ignorance to rob you any more of any of His benefits. Find out all about your covenant rights and benefits in Christ today. Each day, remember them and meditate on them, and see His goodness toward you!
Dear Trumpkins, There's No Way for Real Cruz Conservatives to Support Trump
https://pjmedia.com/trending/2016/05/08/... #Trending @pjmedia_com
by Newt Gingrich
No one imagined three days ago that a month would disappear from the campaign calendar.
The morning of the Indiana primary virtually everyone assumed there would be a fight for the GOP nomination at least to June 7 when California, New Jersey and several other states vote.
Many thought the contest could go on after June 7 because Trump might still be a few delegates short.
Some hoped there would be a contested convention in July.
Suddenly, Tuesday night, Senator Ted Cruz cut either one or two months out of the calendar.
In a very wise, realistic step he suspended his candidacy. This allows him to avoid a month of negativity. It will serve him well. He leaves the race a much bigger, stronger figure than when he entered. He is plausibly a candidate for the Presidency in 2020 if Trump loses. (Actually, Cruz is so young he is plausibly a candidate for President in 2040). He has the name recognition and financial network to become a future governor of our second biggest state. He would be a superb choice to fill the Scalia role on the Supreme Court. He can now take some time to think long and hard about his future.
The Cruz decision had a big effect on both Trump and Ryan.
First, the Trump team was focused on winning the nomination. They were consumed by delegate hunts, future primaries, and winning a convention with a lot of opposition trying to stop them.
Suddenly the Trump team has had to shift direction, focus, and scale.
Trump himself has to move from an enthusiastic gladiator fighting Republican rivals to a national leader seeking to unify both the party and the country. The shift has been huge and sudden. It will take weeks to complete.
Second, Speaker Ryan represents a serious, policy oriented Washington based approach that is somewhere between skeptical and hostile about the Trump candidacy.
On the morning of the Indiana primary the Washington policy Republicans still had hopes of a contested convention. Most thought that, at a minimum, they had six or seven more weeks to negotiate with Trump as he tried to win the last few delegates.
In some ways the Cruz withdrawal was the worst possible world for Washington policy Republicans.
Suddenly, Trump was unchallengeable. He was the nominee. None of the reconciliation and communication process had occurred.
Furthermore, by winning so early and so decisively, the Washington policy Republicans feared there was a very real chance Trump would now wander off into whatever policy inventions and maneuvers he wanted to.
Speaker Ryan was looking for a maneuver to slow down the Trump consolidation of power and force a negotiated dialogue toward some kind of accommodation between two very different set of policy goals.
Ryan’s Thursday statement that he could not yet endorse Trump was dangerous. It was also in some ways a demonstration of fear and weakness.
Faced with an amazing avalanche of personal victories for Trump, Ryan apparently felt he needed a big enough event to get Trump’s attention.
This is a very dangerous game.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is correctly trying to develop party unity now that there is a nominee.
Ryan’s statement may have been given a bigger play because of the same day announcement by the two Bush Presidents and Mitt Romney that they would not endorse Trump or attend the convention.
As someone who supported all three for President it was a bit outrageous to have them suddenly wiser and purer than millions of Republican voters. It is fine to have them skip Cleveland which ought to be focused on the future not the past. It is not acceptable to have them desert the party which made them national figures.
Hopefully Ryan and Trump will work through to an accommodation in the next week or so.
Running for president is hard.
Governing is even harder.
This is just one more bump on a road that Trump has triumphantly been on for a year. There will be a lot more bumps and his ability to solve them will determine if he becomes President.
Ryan also faces the challenge of leading a House GOP which could rapidly split into unmanageable factions.
There is a lot at stake.
Although I would rather have seen Ted Cruz represent us in the general election, I will fully support Trump to win over the continuing assault of the progressives on our nation. Please tell me your plans for the future. We cannot endure more Progressive Obama style rulers. Watch the short video below and share your thoughts and plans.
GOD IS WELL PLEASED WITH YOU, HIS BELOVED
…He [God] made us accepted in the Beloved. Ephesians 1:16
Studies have shown that in the heart of every child is a cry for his father’s approval. Something happens when a father says to his boy, “Daddy is so proud of you.” Or when a father says to his girl, “You will always be Daddy’s favorite girl.”
You can catch such a similar special moment in the Bible when God the Father displayed His approval of His Son—“This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17) The Bible shows us that Jesus’ ministry began with the approval of the Father, even before He had performed any miracle.
Now, you may think that God would naturally say that of Jesus, but not of us. My friend, the truth is that Jesus came for us and as us. He died for us and as us. He received the approval of the Father for us and as us. He came as our representative. And if that is not enough, God tells us in His Word that we are “accepted in the Beloved”!
Why did God specifically say “accepted in the Beloved” and not simply “accepted in Christ”? I believe that it is because He is calling to our remembrance what had happened at the Jordan river where He said, “This is My Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” God wants us to know that we are His beloved and that He is well pleased with us.
God sees us as His beloved because He has made us accepted in the Beloved. He wants us to wake up every day knowing that we are His beloved, unconditionally loved and wholly approved.
The more we know how much we are loved and treasured by God, the more we can expect good things to happen in our lives. We can expect to be healthy and whole. When we realize that we are the objects of God’s love, instead of becoming easily frightened or threatened by anything or anyone, we become confident that we will win every fight of life.
That, my friend, is how your heavenly Father wants you to live. So live life today confident that you are God’s beloved!
Abortion Part III: Roe v. Wade
It is clearly stated in the Declaration of Independence that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Life is an unalienable right. It’s straightforward. Furthermore, the Constitution passes our rights to our posterity. Who is that? Our unborn children yet to come. Progressives have done everything possible to discredit our Founding documents, with even President Woodrow Wilson saying, “You can’t listen to the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution is an old dusty document.” Progressives would have you believe that abortion has always been a constitutional right, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. In this four-part series on abortion, we’ll look at the history of abortion in America, including our Founders’ clear beliefs that abortion was murder.
Explaining What Happened in Arizona
The battle between the left and right continues to grow hotter this election cycle. The Bernie Sanders movement and their strong push for increased socialism in America has highlighted a large number of arguments, mostly based on ideas of economic equality and fairness.
While many frightening propositions have come from this group, the scariest is the resounding call for raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. This movement is so strong and terrifying that two states, California and New York, have already signed legislation that will make this a reality.
To no one’s surprise, layoffs have already begun, almost a full year before the first increases go into effect. As you worry about how this movement will hurt job growth in America, I am here to tell you that you’re missing the bigger picture. With this movement, Sanders doesn’t have to win any political positions to get the socialized America he wants.
The Importance of Small Business
You’ve often heard that small business is the backbone of the American economy. This is more true than you think. Research shows that small businesses account for more than 50 percent of the U.S. GDP and supply 60-80 percent of all jobs. They also account for 63 percent of job growth in the country.
The primary argument against major minimum wage hikes is how they hurt small businesses. The left knows this, and it is in fact their goal. Annihilating independent businesses is the key step to seizing control of our economy. They push the movement on the principle that corporate America can absorb the increased labor and that the increased wage is really just “rich tax” that will improve economic equality. The truth is that this will virtually eliminate economic mobility, ushering in the class system necessary to sustain a socialist system.
Why the Left Hates Economic Mobility
Economic mobility is hotly debated. Many studies claim that America has seen drastic mobility decline and that Canada and Europe have us beat. In terms of relative mobility, this is partially true. The U.S. has a low instance of seeing children in the bottom tier make it all the way to the top. The primary reason for this is absolute mobility.
Since the 70s, Americans across all demographics have enjoyed better income than their parents. In fact, after adjusting for inflation, 83 percent of Americans are better off than their parents by $26,000 or more.
This is why the definition of poverty has had to change so much in order to support the idea that prosperity isn’t reaching the bottom percentiles. As it turns out, economic freedom and the relative ease with which Americans can start their own business is the key to this mobility. The current generation is much better off than the previous because of the wealth generated by small business.
This brings us back to the $15 an hour minimum wage. Its purpose, under the banner of morality, is to destroy small businesses. Without the capital to pay double the current wages, small business will be choked in their early expansion days. This will drastically reduce the GDP and job growth and slay the American dream. As job opportunities disappear and people find it increasingly difficult to negotiate their incomes or change their economic status, there will only be one place left to turn: the government.
Tying it All Together
Creating a depression, or at least a major recession that most economists predict will be the result of a major minimum wage, is the catalyst to justify substantial increases to government employment and welfare programs. When half of the jobs are gone, the morally responsible choice will be to increase taxes to feed, house and care for the unemployed. Surely you can follow this to conclusion and see the path to establishing a completely socialist economy.
In short, making America socialist requires a devastating blow to our economy. We survived the dotcom bubble and the housing bubble. So, the new tactic is to claim a morally superior stance of investing in the poor by increasing minimum wage. This is actually an attack on small business, without which the U.S. cannot hope to sustain economic growth or mobility. The resulting stagnation can and will justify increased government involvement, increasing taxes and welfare programs until the only possible outcome is Mr. Sanders’s socialist dream. He doesn’t have to win an election to achieve his goals; he only needs the minimum wage to go national.
