Most men hesitate to speak of their own spiritual experiences. They are deterred by the fear of making "self" too prominent, or are ashamed to confess how much practical unbelief and half-hearted allegiance to their Lord exist in their lives.

The writer of this book knows his own unworthiness; but he humbly believes that he also knows something of the worthiness of an All-sufficient Savior.

The manner in which this knowledge came -- through an apparently trivial incident -- is itself remarkable.

The immediate result was a joy which no bridling could restrain. But whenever this Victorious Life was spoken of, requests were made for "something in print." After much pressure from many directions, and with much hesitation on the part of the writer, he ventured to put down his reflections.

These appeared in the columns of THE LIFE OF FAITH, through the kindness of the Editor.

They are here republished with practically no alterations. These chapters show the pathway by which one seeking soul found its way from "life" to "life more abundant."

They endeavor to reveal the helps and the hindrances which a seeker after the Victorious…...

World War 2 seize power. The desire of dictators in Germany, Italy, and Japan to conquer additional territory brought them into conflict with the democratic nations. After World War I ended, representatives of the victorious nations met in Paris in 1919 to draw up peace treaties for the defeated countries. These treaties, known as the Peace of Paris, followed a long and bitter war. They were worked out in haste by these countries with opposing goals; and failed to satisfy even the victors. Of all the countries on the winning side, Italy and Japan left the peace conference most dissatisfied. Italy gained less territory than it felt it deserved and vowed to take action on its own. Japan gained control of German territories in the Pacific and thereby launched a program of expansion. But Japan was angered by the peacemakers' failure to endorse the principle of the equality of all races. The countries that lost World War I--Germany, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, and Turkey--were especially dissatisfied with the Peace of Paris. They were stripped of territory, arms and were required to make reparations (payments for war damages). The Treaty of Versailles, which was signed with Germany, punished Germany severely. The German government agreed to sign the treaty only after the victorious powers threatened to invade. Many Germans particularly resented the clause that forced Germany to accept responsibility for causing World War I. World War I seriously damaged the economies of the......

...on our desires and motives but to His purpose and plans! He who made us by His foreknowledge will fulfill His promises to us completely! We must just need to go with the same accord to His plans and purpose and don’t take life to our own way. You are victorious to this life!

...1812 as a commander of a militia in Tennessee where he was living. He managed to fight many tribes of Native Americans and negotiated treaties that caused the Native Americans millions of acres of land. His skills as a lawyer helped him greatly. Jackson was commissioned a US major general in May 1814. American heroes as Sam Houston and Davy Crockett served under his command now. He went on to fight in may battles always come out of the fight victorious. When the US needed him the most they sent him to fight and the next year Jackson managed to stop a British assault on New Orleans. The fighting was hard but the US was able to win for many reasons. First of all they expected a large British naval force with twenty five thousand groung troop but in reality it was much less than once thought. They had dug in (literally dug into the ground) and had been preparing for a fight for days. The British had been ready because they poorly prepared their assault and failed on the most important of their attacks. Major General Andrew Jackson emerged victorious and he only lost thirteen and killed over two thousand British troops. The British were ashamed by the loss and the war was finished. After this battle Andrew Jackson was given the endearing nickname “Old Hickory.” Though the Treaty of Ghent was signed and the battle was pointless Jackson still managed to defeat the British one last time. After the battle Jackson was seen as a great hero of America, second only to George Washington.......

The Nigerian Constitution in 1960

...or so amendments, covers 9,500 words; South Korea 13,000 words; former Soviet Union 15,000 words; China 2000; and South Africa 50,000 words. This is very interesting: China, which is 10 times the size of Nigeria in population, has a constitution three per cent the volume of that of Nigeria; the United States of America with a little more than twice the population of Nigeria has a Constitution whose volume is 13 per cent that of Nigeria; and South Africa with a third of the population of Nigeria has a Constitution two-thirds the volume of that of Nigeria. Let us attempt a partial explanation. The American Constitution was a product of a revolution. It was the will of the victorious forces in the American Revolution. The Chinese Constitution was the product of a world historic revolution, the will of victorious revolutionary forces (1949); the South African Constitution (1996) was the product of a grand compromise between the apartheid forces, the international community and the revolutionary forces under the leadership of the African National Congress (ANC). The 1960 Constitution of the Federation of Nigeria was a compromise between the British colonial power and the ruling blocs which emerged from colonialism. The present Constitution is a continuation of that compromise, but with the international community replacing the colonial power. It would appear, therefore, that major revolutions with definitive conclusions produce concise constitutions and that compromises and......

The Taste of Victory Is the Burden of Responsibility

...feelings make us worth living for others. It is a joy of victory that brings the package of responsibilities. But very few of great people realize this responsibility and make themselves successful one. Successful man should not feel himself free from any responsibility. Every victorious man is attached with responsibility to discharge. There is no doubt to say that the taste of victory is the burden of responsibility. Firstly, victorious teacher has to translate the taste of victory by imparting quality education similarly a successful politician has to take the responsibility of qualitative legislation. No character is free from the burden of responsibility. Great people like Nelson Mandela ,Quaid-e-Azam enjoyed the taste of victory by demonstrating responsibility therefore we should learn that in whatever capacity we may be we are bound to show responsibility. Secondly, life examines everyone through victories and responsibilities and it’s up to us whether we fall back or stay firm and achieve success. As it is rightly said by John Kennedy “Every test in our life makes us bitter or better, every problem comes to make us or break us, the choice is ours whether we become victims or victorious”. All victorious people have one common enemy to fight that is poverty, disease and war so before enjoying the taste of victory one should ponder over that how he can meet his responsibilities in order to stand unique. Hence; this is proved that the taste of victory is the burden......

Getty Villa Art Pieces

...Getty Villa Art Pieces The Getty Villa is home to many interesting and amazing art pieces. It was founded by J. Paul Getty in 1954 to display his beautiful collection of art. It was heavily influenced by Greek Architecture especially the Greek Villas. The Villa is known for having some of the more unique statues. Most known for the “Lansdowne Hercules” and the “Victorious Youth” which is actually one of the only bronze statues still intact in the world. Plenty of art pieces are unique and on display at the museum. Focusing on Greek Art and Sculpture is fairly easy as they have their own section clearly labeled Greek. This was a huge help in finding the artwork I needed. Three pieces in particular are interesting and have their own story and style. Prize Vessel from the Athenian Games, 363-362 B.C. is a “Panathenaic amphora” used as a prize to give out to the winner of the Games. The contents of the vase were usually just olive oil pressed from the sacred trees of Athens. These were made in their own unique way and almost always included a narrow neck and a standard decoration pertaining to the games. These vases are always decorated with Athena, the goddess of war, who watches over Athens. On one side, the vase is decorated with Athena in her quintessential gown and a helmet worthy of a goddess. She is depicted in sort of a stride armed with her shield and spear showing how strong she is. The other side is in this case a painting of the goddess Nike, Goddess of Victory,......

...seemed like a good idea for war. “Once we win, we can make the world a much better place for democracy to succeed,” Wilson must have thought to himself. “With the help of our allies, we can win this war and help make a better future for everyone.” This sounds like a desperate girlfriend trying to fix her cheating boyfriend, it just will not happen. But when America indeed come out victorious in 1918, Wilson saw that his vision was coming true. He had his Fourteen Points all set up, which was the blueprint for the postwar world. “No more secret agreements, free navigation of all seas, an end to all economic barriers between countries, etc.”, just a few of the points that would go in effect once the Versailles Peace Conference was finished. Versailles, France, 1918. All of the countries who took part in the war met to get this peace treaty signed and to start off fresh. Wilson went there thinking everyone attending this event would be on his side and would agree to the terms of the Fourteen Points he had drafted up earlier in the year, considering the United States just came out of this war victorious after only being in it for under a year. The French, Japanese, Italian, and English, all of whom were Wilson’s Allied counterparts and were coveted former German colonies and spheres of influence, basically organized a well-thought out plan to outsmart and outmaneuver Wilson and get their own “Fourteen Points” on the treaty and for all to agree to the terms. This is not at all......

Christianity in Beowulf

... The good entity in this battle lies within Beowulf. The battle consists of a fight between Beowulf, and an evil and angry Grendel, whom massacres over thirty men with ease in Herot. Grendel comes to Herot as a result of his annoyance with the noise coming from the hall. By massacring multitudes of men, the demon breaks the commandment of ‘Thou shall not kill’, exposing his evil self. As far as the fight goes, “The monster wrenched and wrestled with him but Beowulf was mindful of his mighty strength, the wondrous gifts God had showered on him: He relied for help on the Lord of All, on His care and favour. So he overcame the foe, brought down the hell-brute” (1269-1274). Beowulf slays the demon, but according to the text, was not victorious. The text states that good won the battle in the sense that God had predetermined good, Beowulf in this instance, to win the battle. The constant battle between good and evil is again shown in the battle between Beowulf and Grendel’s mother. Grendel’s mother, in a similar manor as her son, enters Herot and murders an innocent civilian in the hall, seeking vengeance for her son’s death. Her thirst for vengeance can is indicated when Andy Orchard states, “Grendel’s mother… called to mind her misery, she who had to inhabit the dread waters, the cold streams since Cain became the sword-slayer to his only brother, his paternal kinsman” (Orchard 139). The critic is stating that Grendel’s mother was forced to live in the depths as a......

The Battle of Little Big Horn

...what he did see, he ran away from. However, this does not mean the Indian accounts were the most credible. Being filtered by white interviewers, there is no doubt that the stories told were not as they are in the book currently. In She Walks With Her Shawl’s account, she says,”The brave men who came to punish us that morning were defeated;” She refers to the U.S. soldiers as “brave man”. This does not make any sense as she should have shown hatred toward these soldiers, not complement their bravery. In conclusion, there was likely a bit of bias on all three eye witness accounts. However, all accounts do support the fact that the U.S. Army, primarily General Custer, were outnumbered drastically. The Indians were not victorious in the end, they were only victorious in this one battle. And many would argue that the victory did not come from the overwhelming might and skill of the Indian forces, but from the poor judgment of a few U.S. Generals; most famously, General Custer. The battle, however, is correctly labeled today as a massacre. Work Cited: N.p., n.d. Web. . "Battle Of Little Bighorn." History Net Where History Comes Alive World US History Online RSS. N.p., n.d.

Battle of the Ants

...thousands shared the fate of Davis and Hosmer (two colonists killed)....I have no doubt that it was a principle they fought for, as much as our ancestors, and not to avoid a three-penny tax on their tea; and the results of this battle will be as important and memorable to those whom it concerns as those of the Battle of Bunker Hill, at least. Clearly, Thoreau satires the importance that men have put upon going to war on "principle." Facetiously, he earlier compares the red ant who runs into battle to the the Spartan whose mother told their sons to return victorious or dead: "It was evident that their battle cry was "Conquer or die." Studying the red and black ants fighting for no other reason that they hate each other, or one has taxed the other, brings Walden's passage to the point/thesis of the futility of war as well as the terrible waste of life that it is. FUTILITY: I never learned which party was victorious, nor the cause of the war; but I felt for the rest of that day as if I had had my feelings excited and harrowed by witnessing the struglle, the ferocity and carnage, of a human battle before my door.... WASTE OF LIFE: Whether he finally survived that combat and spent the remainder of his days in some Hotel des Invalides (a veteran's hospital where the injured of the long Napoleonic Wars were sent).

Assess the Aims of Two Countries Entering the First World War. to What Extent Were They Successful in Achieving Their Aims?

...Powers of Europe took part in. This conflict led to the destruction of two of Europe's oldest Empires, namely Russia and Austria-Hungary and brought about terrible hardships to countries which in turn led to the rise of fascism and socialism. This historic event in human history started on the 28th of July, 1914, when Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia as a result of the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand, heir to the Austria-Hungarian throne. Unlike the Great Powers, specifically France, Russia and Germany who joined World War I as a result of the alliances they had in place, what lured Bulgaria and Italy to take up arms was the promise of new territories if victorious. Unfortunately this greed would lead to both nations suffering as a result of their participation in War. Italy, although victorious in the end, had to endure economic hardships and Bulgaria ended up with even less territory compared to when they joined the War. Bulgaria officially entered World War I on the 14th of October, 1915 by declaring war on Serbia, thereby joining the fight on the Central Power's side. Although Bulgaria and Serbia - once members of the Balkan League, fought side by side during the first Balkan War, which resulted in the end of Ottoman Rule in Europe, Bulgarians were dissatisfied about how the former Ottoman Territories, the most coveted one being Macedonia, were divided. This led to a second Balkan War in which Bulgaria fought against its former allies but lost,......
