  • Election Inspiration from the Book of Gideon: "Cutting Gideon's Army Down to the Lord's Size"

    11/06/2016 3:59:47 PM PST · by GoldenState_Rose · 11 replies
    ...We always want to be as strong as possible in facing any challenge; we prefer to have as many resources as possible at our disposal. We have no problem if the odds are on our side; in fact we prefer that to be the case. But God has a different perspective. Look at all of the furor stirred up over our country’s defense budget cuts – anything that would weaken our military advantage; we already have such a decisive advantage due to technology; but we hate to see our forces reduced or any steps taken that would put us at...

    The American Center for Law and Justice said it plans to stand up to the Freedom From Religion Foundation, which recently called for the removal of Gideon Bibles from state-run lodgings.The group noted that the latest battle began after FFRF Co-Presidents Annie Laurie Gaylor and her husband, Dan Barker, stayed at the Holmes Student Center Hotel in DeKalb, Illinois, and discovered a Gideon Bible placed in their hotel room. "No one is making any guest open the Bible. No one is making them read it. In fact, the university is not 'providing bibles;' it is allowing a Christian group to...
  • Is Donald Trump our modern day, Gideon?

    There are many stories out there about Gideon. The similarity to Trump is intriguing. Like Trump, he was not born into politics, but chosen. I'm sure Trump agonized over the decision to run for president. I'm sure too, that he felt called to do this. There are too many things going on, that make me think that he is the one, to lead us from the nightmare of the past six years, and what threatens to follow. We are on the verge of giving Iran nuclear weapons. We have a president who tosses aside our security now and for ever....

    “And the LORD said unto Gideon: ‘The people that are with thee are too many for Me to give the Midianites into their hand, lest Israel vaunt themselves against Me, saying: mine own hand hath saved me…’” (Judges 7:2) The Israeli Defense Forces is preparing for a possible future which includes a nuclear-developing Iran, a senior defense source told The Jerusalem Post. According to the paper, the IDF must assume the worst to properly reshape the military, improve training and cut costs. New IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot and a team of military planners spent four years developing...

    People upset that a grandmother participating in drone protests was sentenced to a year in jail have fired off a series of angry e-mails directed at the judge who sent her to jail. Several of the notes to DeWitt Town Judge David S. Gideon contained four-letter words, and one made anti-Semitic references against the judge who is Jewish. Another called him a "fascist." "Would you please take early retirement soon and move to the country of your forebears?" reads one e-mail. Another e-mail reads "Please convey to the Dishonorable David S. Gideon that he should go f--- himself for abusing...
  • Vanity: Ted Cruz is Gideon

    The story of Gideon is all about God sending a man in to battle with what appeared to those around him to be a weak army. God continued to whittle his army down until such time as Gideon felt he was going into battle with an enemy FAR greater than him and his 300 men. But God had a perfect plan; that Gideon WOULD win and Our Lord would receive all the glory as there was no way Gideon would recieve glory based on strength of his army. Continue or start, to pray fervently for success! We can win this...

    1 Early in the morning, Jerub-Baal (that is, Gideon) and all his men camped at the spring of Harod. The camp of Midian was north of them in the valley near the hill of Moreh. 2 The LORD said to Gideon, "You have too many men for me to deliver Midian into their hands. In order that Israel may not boast against me that her own strength has saved her, 3 announce now to the people, 'Anyone who trembles with fear may turn back and leave Mount Gilead.' " So twenty-two thousand men left, while ten thousand remained. 4 But...

    I will go to hell and back for Sarah Palin, literally. Why? Because this woman loves America as much as I do. She wakes up everyday, works hard, and does her best to do what is right for America and her family. She is truly an eloquent, inspirational person that conveys the greatness of America and displays dutiful American exceptionalism. Though extraneous, the Liberal mainstream media despises Palin because she isn’t afraid to speak out and express her concerns with the direction this country is taking. She has the efficacy, the influence, and a spine that’s built of steel. Even...

    A new California law that gives poor residents the right to an attorney in civil matters such as child custody and foreclosure is being hailed as a model that could transform the nation's legal landscape. But critics argue that the law will result in a wave of case backlogs and could further burden court budgets. The law, signed this month by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, assures the poor legal counsel in an array of civil cases. Advocates for the change say poor people often wind up in court facing life-changing consequences -- such as eviction -- but go through the process...

    We all know Moses story, but do we remember Gideon? No one gives much thought to Gideon, but the Lord has chosen him to save His people. Gideon reminds the Lord his family is the poorest and in his family he is the least thought of. Has God called you to a task? Are you feeling unqualified and unequipped? Read on and see how Gideon handled the situation. We all know the story about Moses and the burning bush. We all know God called Moses to save His people, but how many of us remember Gideon?

    Some parents in Frisco, Texas, are fuming because their public school district allowed Christian evangelists to provide Bibles to students on school grounds, which administrators say was done to stop even more proselytizing outside the schools. Frisco Independent Schools allowed Gideons International to display Bibles on tabletops in all 13 of the district's middle and high schools last week. Officials say it didn't violate the law, but some parents say school is not the place to be offering the Good Book. "I was never notified by the schools that they were going to allow this. I was a little shocked,"...

    And what more shall I say? I do not have time to tell about Gideon...Hebrews 11:32 God chose Gideon to free the people of Israel and to condemn their idol worship (Judges 7). Gideon began with 32,000 men and God narrowed down the number to 10,000 and finally to 300 men. Three hundred men held torches and trumpets, and at Gideon's command all 300 men shouted "A sword for the Lord and Gideon" and blew their horns. The men in the camp turned on each other, and it was a complete routing for Gideon. This is one of those fascinating...

    Officials say they have no way to disinfect books If you're scheduled for surgery in New Brunswick, Canada, bring your own Bible if you need a source of comfort – one hospital has removed copies of the Good Book from patients' bedside tables in order to control infection. "We have disinfection processes to disinfect other surfaces, but we don't have anything to disinfect books," Jane Stafford, a spokeswoman for the River Valley Health Authority, which operates the Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital, explained to Canada's CBC News
