Rebecca Latimer Felton: Senator for a Day | Georgia Stories

"There has only been one female senator from Georgia in United States history, and even then, she only held the position for one day. To this very day, Rebecca Latimer Felton is the only woman to represent the state of Georgia in the U.S. Senate, but many people may not have heard of her. So, who was Felton — and why is she so important to remember as we close Women's History Month?.. As we close Women's History month, it's important to remember Felton in totality — not only for what she meant for white suffragists, but what she meant for civil rights in the South."

“Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.”

John F. Kennedy

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”

Bill Keane

"The Bible has been divinely inspired. Prophecy is the demonstration in word that God knows all of history from the beginning to the end as well as all the hearts of men involved in history — nothing is hidden from Him. In 2 Timothy 3:16 we read that “All scripture is given by inspiration of God”, so Scripture must have the stamp of God upon it. The prophecies of Scripture show a major part of this wonderful stamp, revealing the great wisdom and power of God. The student of Scripture will surely be strengthened by an in depth study of Biblical prophecy. Bible prophecy is unique. There is no other religious book on Earth that even remotely matches the exactness, accuracy and majesty of the Bible’s statements concerning history and God’s control over history. Prophecy is God’s mark on history to let mankind know that He is providential and will do His perfect will in both Heaven and Earth. “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10). We must believe that God is in control of history and that sinful circumstances cannot undermine this fact. While it is evident that on the Earth sin and its curse are present, it is also evident that it is contained, curtailed and judged. “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” (1 John 5:19). The Devil (also called Satan) rules over his kingdom — the kingdom of darkness — because of the presence of sin on the Earth. The present fallen world is his domain. “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” (2 Corinthians 4:3,4). Satan is the spiritual ruler of fallen mankind — “the god of this world”. Christ stated: “If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand?” (Luke 11:18a). Hence, Satan’s kingdom is organized and hierarchical.." from the article: Understanding God’s Role in History
