We Will Rise - Victorious in Jesus

The unrelenting bribes and push for the terrible ObamaSCARE HELLcare bill is enough to drive all of us crazy with grief over what this awful ObaMAO administration and Liberal Dem Congress is doing against the wishes of a great majority of the American people!

While driving home from the grocery store, I was listening to Chris Tomlin's beautiful song "I Will Rise." For some reason, a statement uttered by the actress Olympia Dukakis in the movie Moonstruck came to my mind. Dukakis played the role of an older, married Italian woman (Rose Castorini) who knew that her husband (Cosmo Castorini played by Vincent Gardenia) has been cheating on her with another woman. Knowing that her husband had just come home from being with his mistress, she simply stated, "Cosmo - no matter what you do one day you are going to die, just like everybody else."

Later, she asked the "can't commit" fiancee (Johnny Cammarini played by Danny Aiello) of her daughter Loretta (played by Cher), "Why do men cheat? Why does a man need more than one woman?"

He told her in a questioning fashion, "Because they fear death?"

And Rose Castorini replied, "THAT'S IT! Thank you for answering my question!"

She is correct. One day we all will die. Me, you, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Rahm Emanuel and all the rest of those who one day will have to answer to God for all that they have said and done - the good, the bad, and the ugly - while on this earth.

Do YOU fear death?

Depending on whether or not a person is born again in Jesus Christ will determine how, where, and when they will each face Jesus Christ - the Lord of the universe. Believers will face Him at the Judgment Seat of Christ, where the Worthy Lamb's shed blood at the cross of Calvary will have saved them from the punishment for their sins. It will be a judgment of rewards.

The unsaved, will meet a different fate. They will face Jesus Christ at the White Throne Judgment. Without Christ's sacrificial death on the cross and Resurrection to life to atone for their sins, they will each have to face eternal judgment with their own sins on their souls. The result of their choice not to believe in Christ will be separation from God forever.

No matter what happens with this gangster government regime while they are in power (for a brief moment in time compared to eternity!), all that they think that they have (or will accomplish) will fall to dust and blow away when the Lamb of God calls his own unto Himself and ushers them into the Kingdom of God.

The fact that Jesus is the ONLY ONE worthy enough to open the scrolls at the end of the age shows how foolish those who do not believe in Him will be.

Listen carefully to the great lyrics (many taken straight from Scripture!) of Chris Tomlin's "I Will Rise" in this music video!

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes will not be hurt at all by the second death. - Revelation 2:11 (NIV)

I never cheated on my wife, I don't worship any gods, and I don't fear death.
Where does that leave your ranting?

Then you have to ask yourself, 'why am I reading this blog?'

What does that say about you?

Where does that leave you?

Why am I reading this blog? Oh, Christine!...

Do I need to remind you that you invited me here?
That you boasted about the direction you were going (as opposed to your forum site)?
That you warned me “you're probably gonna hate it”?
That when I mentioned that I didn't like the format, you claimed the real truth was that I was frightened by the strength of the opposition?
Remember that?

No, it hasn't been especially pleasant for me. But someone has to do it.
I've read the bible. If I can deal with that, I can deal with this, and this place does have better entertainment.

What does that say about me? That I'm persistent, I guess. That, and that I must work hard every day to maintain my status as your “favorite nemesis”.

Where does that leave me? Right here! Riiight here!!
For as long as necessary!
