Photo of the Day – Obama Martin Luthor King MLK Day Painting. Artwork By Ben Heine. Beautiful Piece

Obama Martin Luthor King MLK Day Painting By Ben Heine

Absolutely gorgeous painting.

Martin Luthor King Jr. and Barack Obama together in this amazing painting by Ben Heine via DevianArt. Two major events collided recently that are absolutely incredible: The 2nd inauguration of the first ever black President transpired on the same day as Martin Luthor King Jr. Day, a day that celebrates all MLK did for the civil rights of minorities and African Americans in America.

It was a historical moment of epic proportions whose historical impact cannot be denied by anyone. Martin Luthor King Jr. paved the way for Barack Obama’s and other blacks who aspire to the highest office in the land; and gives them hope that they can too, one day, lay claim to it. Hopefully it will be someone like Herman Cain, Condoleezza Rice, Mia Love, Allen West, Collin Powell, Tim Scott or Bobby Jindel… But I digress.

This is an absolutely gorgeous, beautiful painting. Kudos to artist Ben Heine of DeviantArt for drawing it. Check out his DeviantArt profile and give him some love!

Photo of the Day – Martin Luthor King Jr. With Billy Graham

Martin Luthor King Jr. With Billy Graham Photograph

Two titans together. Amazing.

Billy Graham with Martin Luthor King Jr. Before his death, Martin Luther King, Jr. developed a friendship with Billy Graham who once said, “He (King) asked me to call him just plain Mike.”

Such an awesome, beautiful photograph of two amazing men of God. I am glad that this photograph exists, proof of the bonds that develop between different individuals who share a faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Here’s an awesome video where you can hear Martin Luthor King Jr. in his own voice praying for Billy Graham! So awesome! This documentary video talks about how the two worked together and what they did. I love history.

Martin Luthor King Jr. Encouraging Quote of the Day – Like Anybody I Would Like To Live A Long Life. Longevity Has Its Place. But I’m Not Concerned About That Now. I Just Want To Do God’s Will. And He’s Allowed Me To Go Up To the Mountain. And I’ve Looked Over. And I’ve Seen the Promised Land

Martin Luthor King Jr. MLK Great Quote Gods Will Over Longevity to the Promised Land

Absolutely awe-inspiring words from someone who walked the walk and carried his cross.

“Like Anybody I Would Like To Live A Long Life. Longevity Has Its Place. But I’m Not Concerned About That Now. I Just Want To Do God’s Will. And He’s Allowed Me To Go Up To the Mountain. And I’ve Looked Over. And I’ve Seen the Promised Land.” Celebrate MLK’s inspiring Spirit of God with this amazing quote.

The pulse of Christ pumped through this man in so many powerful ways. His thinking was profound beyond human understanding. That’s because he yielded his life to the guide of the Holy Spirit, allowing God to speak through him and change the world. This quote gives me shivers.

If you’ve ever seen the last speech that MLK ever gave, the Holy Spirit was literally dripping off this man. According to interviews with a guy who was with MLK the day he was assassinated, he told people that MLK was the giddiest he had ever seen him. In fact he said Martin Luthor King was actually playful. So playful in fact that he started a pillow fight! This was completely unlike MLK, who was usually stoic and serious. He said this was manifest evidence to him that MLK was divinely inspired and knew that it was his last day on Earth. And even in the midst of that impending doom, he had the joy of Christ. A joy only the peace of God brings. This is from first-hand accounts. You can believe whatever you want to believe, but its clear to people who were there that God flowed through Martin Luthor King Jr. in powerful, powerful ways.
