Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
Everybody wants to be a somebody, or so it seems. So many people want to be a star, to be out in front, and they think that will make them happy.
Yet Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit” (Matthew 5:3 NKJV). In other words, “Happy are the nobodies.” To be poor in spirit has nothing to do with how much you have in your bank account. This is about your attitude toward God.
Here’s another way to translate this: “Happy, or blessed, is the person who sees his or her real spiritual condition.”
