Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 InspirationBy Doug BanksonRecently one of our bible school students shared a profound statement with me that she got from the Lord in prayer. She said the Lord spoke to her heart that,“My people are going from mercy to mercy instead of from glory to glory.”Wow! That’s powerful!We know that God is merciful, or none of us would still be alive! But in a watered down mixed up world (and I’m speaking sadly of what’s behind most pulpits) we are spreading a popular brand of gospel that keeps us from the victorious heights we were created for as children of God. We have fallen from a grace that frees us to live victoriously and abundantly, to a pitiful excuse for our indulgences.Intrigued? Follow my thoughts.God’s mercy is our starting place. It is found at the mercy seat where the precious blood of Christ had to be spilled for our atonement. And oh what mercy it is! What a precious gift that our Lord would pour out his sacrifice to atone for us! Mercy is what turns the valley of Achor into a door of hope. Achor was the valley where Achan the thief who cursed Israel was stoned, yet in Hosea God said he would turn it into a door of hope for backslidden Israel to give them a new start even though deserving of death. See Joshua 7:24-28 and Hosea 2:5-15.) In other words, through Christ our dead end has turned into a new beginning!But we must truly understand that the wages of all sin is death, and until we get past the place where we see ourselves as “good people” who have done bad things, to sinners who need a Savior, we will be relegated to a shallow salvation (if actual at all) that excuses sin rather than becoming victorious over it in our lives. We have anesthetized ourselves from the true power of redemption that not only forgives us of sin, but truly delivers and frees us from repeating it!Please don’t get me wrong. God’s mercies are new every morning, and it is the place we are to run to should we fall short. “…run boldly (with confidence) to the throne of grace and obtain mercy…” Heb 4:16But what I want us to see is that we have become like the perpetual dieter who keeps starting tomorrow rather than making a true lifestyle change. We are using mercy as a lifestyle rather than finding the grace that helps us overcome “the sin that so easily besets us.” (Heb 12:2) We are in a holding pattern, ever learning but never able to come to the truth.We are not called to merely go from mercy to mercy constantly having to restart, but to go from glory to glory!“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom). [Isa. 61:1, 2.] And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.”2 Corinthians 3:17-18 AMPCThe truth is that Jesus came to set us free! But it is a freedom that is more than turning back condemnation when we sin, (or the perverse teaching that there is never any more condemnation no matter how much we sin.) It is the truth that we can live victorious over sin! We can live a life of consecration and holiness in this present world by the power of God’s grace, just like we can live a healthy lifestyle and be in shape if we choose to crucify the flesh rather than serve it. Greater is He who is in us than he that is in the world!Mercy is always available to the repentant sinner both before and after receiving Christ, but better still is the admonition to the believer to now go from glory to glory! It is a life that starts with mercy and a salvation of grace through faith, and by that faith we can live free and in power over sin. This equips the believer to go from a “I’m a sinner just like you but it’s ok cause God loves us all the way we are” mentality (which by the way can actually build big churches) to a truly God ordained gospel that says “I too was bound to sin and its continual curse, but God saved and delivered me and now I’m free and you can be too!”“Glory to glory” living truly leaves a sin mentality in the rear view mirror as we live how God intended, free from the attitudes and actions of the past and in unhindered relationship and fellowship with God.So as Hebrews 6:1 declares, “… let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God.” Let is build upon the beloved mercy of God and live in the power of grace so that we don’t merely go from “mercy to mercy” but truly in the tremendous liberty of living “from glory to glory!” Doug Bankson is the Lead Pastor at the Victory Church World Outreach Center in Apopka and an Apopka City Commissioner.

Thousands of people of many nationalities and religions gathered outside the stadium here Sept. 22 to protest the fascist rally held for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Donald Trump. Under the guise of signing a trade deal to strengthen economic relations between the countries, both Modi and Trump used their platform to stoke intensifying violence against oppressed peoples. The current Indian and U.S. regimes see one another as allies. Modi, with regard to the India-Pakistan border, and Trump, the Mexico-U.S. border, proclaimed they would use their borders as battlegrounds to keep their countries “safe from terror.” Both Modi and Trump deliberately left out the terror they inflict. Both heads of state have used religious differences as well as colonial divisions like race, gender, sexual orientation and class to incite violence against minorities. Hate crimes against minorities saw significant increases after the respective elections of Modi and Trump. The highly organized protest particularly called out Modi for his ties to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a Hindu nationalist volunteer organization whose founders trained directly under Mussolini in Italy; his gross violations of human rights, religious persecution, extrajudicial killings, police brutality, illegal detention, blatant destruction of the environment in favor of economic gains; and his revoking of Kashmiri sovereignty. Modi found an ally in Trump, who is willing to overlook Modi’s crimes and, in many cases, is committing similar atrocities in the name of empire.The event with Modi and Trump was titled and advertised as “Howdy Modi.” However, some 15,000 people in Houston vehemently rejected oppression and monuments to fascism when they chanted, “¡Adios Modi! Liberation for Kashmir!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
2018 Friend of the Industry Award recipient Randy Haymaker with Hoosier Energy, Phillip and Patty Dow, Outstanding Cattleman of the Year Indiana Young Cattleman of the Year Excited for 2019The Indiana Beef Cattle Association honored the state’s top cattlemen during their Annual Convention last Saturday. Dr. Paul Hodgen from Roachdale in Putnam County was named the 2018 Young Cattlemen of the Year. He told HAT that he came back to the farm in 2012 after spending time in corporate America. He has a diversified corn, soybean, and cattle operation. With all of the rolling ground in his area, he wanted to expand the livestock operation.“That includes utilizing cover crops for grazing. We’re a cow/calf operation mainly. This past year we started bringing in some feeder calves as well. We’ve got a lot of byproduct from our corn side that we need to utilize, and it’s cheap feed.”Looking back at 2018, Hodgen said things started out great, but took a turn with a cold, wet March that brought a lot of health issues to his calves.“Surprisingly the calves really rebounded from that, and then we had a pretty decent growing season. Then we got into October and, just like on the crop side, it was a mud bog trying to get the crops out, it was also tough on the cattle. Trying to fight a lot of rain, a lot of mud, and cattle mud do not mix.”Despite some of those challenges, Hodgen is looking forward to 2019.“We did some embryo transfer work for the first time in years on our farm and really excited to see these calves hit the ground that we’ve done the ET work on.” Facebook Twitter 1 of 4 Robert C.

Today, we’ve got lawmakers trying to reach an agreement, an abandoned tiger, a former astronaut announcing campaign run, and a man accused of having four different wives. U.S. lawmakers reach an agreementIt was announced late Monday that key lawmakers have a tentative deal that would avoid another government shutdown. According to the Washington Post, the agreement happened during closed-door negotiations at the Capitol. The proposed deal includes $1.375 billion for 55 miles of fences along the border. Trump previously asked for $5.7 billion for more than 200 miles of fences. To avoid another shutdown, the proposed deal has to be written into final legislation, passed by the House and Senate, and signed into law by the president. California governor plans to withdraw troops from borderNearly 400 troops will be withdrawn from the southern California border. Governor Gavin Newsom made the announcement Monday and said that the troops will be assigned to other duties. He plans to redirect some withdrawn troops to the state’s central fire agency. Others will be redirected to a statewide service aimed at international criminal drug gangs. This announcement follows a similar move made last week by the governor of New Mexico, according to The New York Times. Newsome is expected to speak publicly about his decision in his State of the State address today. Tiger found in abandoned home A man planning to smoke marijuana at an abandoned home in Houston found a tiger in a cage, according to a report by CNN. Authorities were suspicious at first because they thought he might have been under the effects of the drug. Once authorities arrived at the house they found the caged tiger in the garage of the home. The tiger is being transferred to a facility that is trained to handle exotic pets. Winter storm spans part of countryA winter storm that swept across the Midwest hit the East overnight.

The bureau produced a regional edition.“We deplore the insidious nature of the pressure being put on this newspaper, which has brought its regional bureau to a standstill,” the press freedom organisation said. “This closure is above all the result of a political will to bring the Russian press into line in the run-up to the parliamentary elections.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We reaffirm our support for Novaya Gazeta, whose problems in Samara are linked to a ‘March of the Dissenters’ in the city in May that was organised by the bureau chief’s daughter.”The bureau chief and editor of the Samara edition, Sergei Kurt-Adzhiyev, said the bureau had been operating under “critical” conditions for two months and that it was clear the authorities had wanted “to strangle the newspaper on the eve of the elections.” The harassment began with the seizure on three computers on 11 May, on the eve of the “March of the Dissenters.” Kurt-Adzhiyev’s own computer was confiscated on 8 November. Samara is 900 km southeast of Moscow.It has emerged that Kurt-Adzhiyev has been the target of a judicial investigation since 14 May for the alleged use of counterfeit software. He did not discover this until 17 October.The Samara bureau’s closure is not an isolated case. Novaya Gazeta’s Nizhny-Novgorod’s edition has also been paralysed since the seizure of software from its bureau on 29 August on a similar pretext.The use of pirated software is widespread in Russia and does not normally give rise to prosecutions.
