Carpe Diem – Seize the Day!

INTRODUCTION

 

There is a latin saying – Carpe diem!! Which translates to Seize the day!

That is my challenge to you today!

You were born so the Earth would be better off because you were here.

Place your hand over your heart. Feel that? That’s called purpose. You’re alive for a reason!

Always wear your invisible crown!!

I am fairly certain that given a cape and a nice tiara, I could save the world!

When we put our lives in Christ’s hands and yield ourselves unreservedly to Him, we can be certain that He has a great plan for us. He can use everything that has happened to us in the past and every circumstance in our present experience to help carry out that plan.

Predestined

  1. You were predestined. You have a destiny.
  2. In simple terms destiny is God’s purpose for your life.
  3. Your destiny existed before you did.
  4. The purpose of life is a life of purpose

Positioned

 

POSITION:- condition with reference to place; location; situation. Status or standing

  • God has placed  you here in this time, in this country, in this city, in your family, in your workplace.
  • It is no accident that you are in the street you are in, the workplace, the family, the Church. God has a plan for you!
  • He has appointed the places you shall live.
    “From one man He made every nation of men that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.” (Acts 17:26)
  • Esther was in place as Queen before the threat to the Jews was apparent. God placed Esther on the throne even before the Jews faced the possibility of destruction, so that when trouble came,  a person would already be in the position to help.
  • Where you are positioned expect favour from both God and man. “The girl pleased him and won his favour” (Esther 2:9)
  • Also – how many women had already presented themselves to the King? Don’t worry about where everyone else is – your gifts will make way for you! God will make way for you.  

Prepared

 

PREPARATION:- To put in proper condition or readiness. Waiting

  • I will prepare and some day my chance will come.” (Abraham Lincoln)
  • Be comfortable in the waiting – 12 months before the encounter that would change Esther’s life forever.
  • Be the ant – do a little everyday (John Grisham)
  • Esther began 6 months of treatment with oil of myrrh. Myrrh is both bitter and pleasantly fragrant. It was used to embalm people and cover the smell of flesh. It also heals many ailments. It removes impurities and softens the skin. Treatment with myrrh represents repentance, dying to self
  • 6 months of perfumes and cosmetics. Frankincense releases its fragrance when set on fire. This treatment represents praise and worship. Sweet aroma. Saturated with perfume! Intimacy with God.
  • Charlotte Gambil said this “how you are internally poised will affect how far you go in living out the destiny God has for you.
  • The Power of Planning – If we want to live a life of significance, we need to understand that it won’t happen by accident. We must be intentional about the choices we make in relation to our dreams. We must also set goals to ensure we are moving toward them daily. Plan your time according to your priorities rather than letting life just happen. Be intentional about what you do / do not do. Let your God given dream fuel you. Many people live life “going with the flow” or “taking life as it comes.” They have no strategy or infrastructure in place to facilitate the realization of their dream. The fact is, when it comes to fulfilling our destiny, we can’t hit a target that we cannot see. Esther had a plan to follow – 6 months of myrrh, 6 months of perfume. Then choose what you want when you go to the king.

    As you pursue your dreams set very specific goals along the way. only a succession of small, daily, measured steps would take me into the future I envisioned. Of course this was coupled with God’s favor, anointing, and opportunity. Esther had to be in the palace for her opportunity to be Queen.

    It’s not enough to see the future we want; we have to be deliberate about the actions we take to make this future a reality.

 

Purposeful

 

PURPOSE:- The reason for which something exists or is done, made, used

We now move from Esther’s preparation and jump past her being made Queen, to Esther summoning the courage to appear unsummoned before the King. She has one question in mind  – how to save her people.

Purpose is what drives you. Purpose is what gave Esther the courage to appear before the King. Purpose is what gave Esther the courage to risk her life.

Zaccheus was a man of action. He heard that Jesus was coming to Jericho (Luke 19:1-10) and went to great effort to be sure he could see him. He climbed up a sycamore tree. He didn’t care what others thought – he moved toward the goal to see Jesus. He postioned himself to be found. The rest is history – Jeuss saw him, Zaccheaes was blessed and hten the entire town benefited from the encounter – he gave the poor ½ his wealth and paid back everyone 4 times what he tool.

Fulfilling your destiny requires commission – cooperation with God’s mission for you. A commission must be acted upon. It will affect not only you, but the world around you.

Action requires risk. Taking a risk takes courage. Esther took a risk to go see the King. Zacchaes had to climb a tree so he could see. Mary risked ridicule by pouring oil on Jesus feet. The men who broke open a roof to let their friend down in front of Jesus all took a risk.

God chose where you would be placed but we have a choice as to what we should do.

Keep your eyes on the goal and not the obstacles.

Risk born out of great determination is courage – the Old Testament word for faith.

Push past fear

Push past doubt

Push past anxiety

We must take advantage of the opportunities He has made available to us in the here and now. He may later open wider spheres of opportunity if that suits His purposes, but that is in His hands. Our responsibility is to let Him use us where we are.

The message of Esther is that God might engineer the circumstances, but what happens after that is ultimately up to us. God might prod us, but we might refuse. And if we refuse, people might die.

Say yes to opportunities

Opportunities exist that you need to catch

Joan of Arc – “I am not afraid….I was born to do this”

So you’re positioned, prepared, have a purpose…..but still quaking in your shoes! What now!

 

  1. BE YOURSELF –  ‘Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.’ St. Catherine of Siena.

Be yourself. Everyone else is taken (Oscar Wilde)

If Esther had tried to be like the other women she would not have been chosen.

  1. KNOW THAT YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE –

GOD + NOTHING = EVERYTHING YOU NEED!

“We need to do what we can do and let God do what we cannot.” (Joyce Meyer)

History is full of stories of ordinary people leading extraordinary lives as they stepped up to be change agents and shape their times. Churchill rallied a nation against Hitler. Martin Luther King had a dream that brought segregation to an end in the United States. Ghandi, a lawyer from India, broke the strength of the British Empire and a nation was born. In our own land, Kate Shepherd forged the way for New Zealand women to have the vote in 1893, before any other country granted women the same right. These ordinary people  demonstrate that one person can make a difference.

Even more so, throughout the Bible we see time and time again, God choosing the few to overcome the many; the small to overcome the large. We see it with David and Goliath, Gideon and his 300 soldiers, and Elijah against the prophets of Baal.

We may not be Kings or Queens, Knights or Prime Ministers, but we are all change makers. We all have a sphere of influence. You may be just one person – one Christian in your family, one Christian in your workplace but you carry within you the King and Lord of all! Don’t underestimate your ability to influence. You affect and impact the people you are around. You can be that tipping point for change that your family, your workplace, city and nation so need.

We were all created for a specific purpose by our God. A purpose to change the world in which we live, to do His divine will. Every pawn on the chess board has a role and is needed if the game is to be won. Don’t discredit yourself if you are not the Bishop or the Queen. We are all needed. We are all planned for. We all have a role to play. We are told in Daniel that “the people that know their God shall be strong, and do exploits” (Daniel 11:32). So we can confidently and boldly step out and impact every nation and every generation.

“It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, He had His eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose He is working out in everything and everyone.” (Ephesians 1:11)

When God looks at you, His focus is not on what you don’t have. His focus is on what you do have. He doesn’t care about your limitations, your IQ, or your education – He cares about what is in your heart. He is moved by people whose hearts are wholly on Him, and He will strengthen those people.

“For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.” (2 Chronicles 16:9)

So watch for that divine connection when you’re out with friends, with family and at work. Understand that there is more to what is going on around you than “you.” There is a divine purpose from God for where you are placed and who you are!

It takes just one person to stand. So don’t despise the day of small beginnings -just keep on being obedient to whatever God tells you to do. Those small acts of obedience to God, those small responses to God moving in your life all count. They are all part of you living your destiny!

Small becomes large – a minority becomes a majority when our God is involved. Your encouragement could be the fuel that someone needs to finish the race.

Small Things Make A Big Difference . Have you ever seen a big ship leave the dock as it prepares to sail the big seas? I recently watched a huge ship pulled out, turned around, and pushed out by a tiny tug boat as it left Port. I was totally mesmerized by the power of a small tugboat; I could not believe such a small thing could literally turn around an entire ship.

“ If you think you’re too small to have an impact try going to bed with a mosquito in the room”

“Act if what you do makes a difference. It does” William James

  1. GO! – The 1st step towards getting somewhere is to decide you’re not staying where you are.  In his book “Mud sweat and tears” Bear Grylls shares what his colonel in the SAS said to him upon passing selection: “What makes our work here exraordinary is that everyone here goes that little bit extra. When everyone else gives up, we give more. That is what sets us apart.” ….Sounds like something Jesus would do-go the extra mile, do something extra…and something Jesus would ask us to do. (Jn 15:13)

    We can ask God to be the “extra” something in someones life…to see the need and meet it…they will be blessed and will you step from the ‘ordinary’ into living an’ extra-ordinary’ life!

 

When the story of these times gets written, we want to say that we did all we could, and it was more than anyone could have imagined. (Bono)

 

 

THIS IS IT!

 

Time = Moments = Now

Destiny – you are living it now.

Don’t forget to remember to show up for your one & only life!

Don’t forget to remember to be fully here while on your way there!

Forever is composed of nows. – Emily Dickinson

Don’t forget to remember that life is not a series of accidents, it is a series of divine appointments! Don’t miss any today! Christine Caine

CONCLUSION

God has a purpose for you, right now, right where you are, no matter who you are, where you live, what you have experienced in the past, or what you are facing in the future. In fact He has allowed you to come to this place in your life for a definite purpose, “for such a time as this.” He has something specific for you to accomplish in your present situation, and He wants you to look for the opportunities in that present sphere of influence.

Kim Walker-Smith from Jesus culture said this “In the pursuit of following Him, He brought my destiny to me. I didn’t have to chase my destiny. It came.”

Your destiny is not something you choose, it is something you discover, It is in your dna already.

Don’t know what your purpose is? Start with this! Love God and let others know of God’s love for them.

Wesley offered this advice “Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, to all the souls you can, in every place you can, at all the times you can, with all the zeal you can, as long as ever you can”

Live with passion. Love extravagently, laugh often, be bold in faith and generous with grace

How different would your life be if you lived constantly aware of the fact that…
God is with you.
God has a purpose for you.
God’s power is in you.
Let these realities transform every moment of your day!

The question isn’t, “Who will God call?” The question is, “Who will respond?” God want us to take steps in reaching the lost, the blind, and the hurting. But we need to stop thinking it will happen once we are done with school, or once the kids are out of school, or once you get married, or once we have the job we want. The time is now.

You have a unique position. God has placed you with purpose. You right now.

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us? ”

And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Don’t count the days. Make the days count

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us” (Gandalf)

THIS IS IT!

SEIZE THE DAY!

 

Ogres, Onions and Layers

SHREK – Ogres are like onions.
DONKEY – They stink?
SHREK – Yes– No!
DONKEY – Oh, they make you cry.
SHREK – No.
DONKEY – Oh, you leave ’em out in the sun, they get all brown, start sprouting little white hairs.
SHREK – No! Layers! Onions have layers. Ogres have layers. Onions have layers. You get it. We both have layers.
DONKEY – Ohhh. You both have layers. Oh. You know, not everybody like onions. Cake! Everybody loves cakes! Cakes have layers.
SHREK – I don’t care…what everyone likes. Ogres are not like cakes.
DONKEY – You know what else everybody like? Parfaits. Have you ever met a person, you say, “Hey, let’s get some parfaits”, they say, “Hell, no, I don’t like no parfaits”? Parfaits are delicious.

Regardless of whether you are like Shrek and would compare yourself to an onion or prefer like Donkey to draw more palatable comparisons to Parfaits and cakes, there is one thing that we all have in common – we all have layers. Layers of personality, emotions, mindsets, beliefs and habits. For us as Christians removing these layers is the pathway to greater intimacy and fruitfulness with the Lord.

 

The famous statue of David by Michelangelo was a result of thousands of thousands of perfectly directed hard and soft blows. And these blows yielded a work of unparalleled beauty. Michelangelo had chiseled away stone and revealed David. Likewise, God works on us to chisel away what covers us and to let the real us emerge – new aspects of our personality, new talents, fruit and more importantly more of Christ in us.

 

While God identifies what requires removing, we influence the strength of the blows required to remove the layers. We can deal with them proactively, privately and promptly, thus limiting the pain or we can wait until God has to deal with them when they are bigger issues and more public, this making the removal much more painful. It is rather like choosing to deal quickly with a niggly sore tooth resulting in a small filling fixed at a convenient time or procrastinating until the damage to the tooth is much worse and must be dealt with immediately.

 

“Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom.” (Song of Songs 2:15)

 

So what are some of the layers that need removing?

 

  1. Self      – when we keep ourselves at the centre and not God. We are exhorted to die      to self.
  2. Scabs      – old hurts, bitterness and unforgiveness
  3. Old      habits and reactions
  4. Fear
  5. Insecurities
  6. Our      Past
  7. Disappointment      due to unfulfilled hopes and dreams can create a layer that precludes us      from intimacy with the Lord. Disappointment causes us to move away from      our appointment with God.
  8. Mindsets.      Romans 8:4-6 Fleshly or spiritual

When you look at the Tabernacle you see a transition from the outer courts to the inner courts. Behaviour that was acceptable in the outer courts is not acceptable in the inner courts. As we get closer to God, the more that is expected of us, so some things must die. What was acceptable in the outer courts is not acceptable in the inner courts. Others will be able to get away with more than you can. Movies that others can watch without any check in the spirit, begin to make you feel uneasy. It is not that what the others are doing is wrong, it is that God has different expectations and standards for you as you continue to grow in intimacy.

Any time that God draws our attention to an aspect of our lives, we need to look beyond the discomfort that it brings and the desire to bury the issue. If we want to be transformed into Christ’s likeness and live a victorious life, we should take the challenge and like Job be sifted.

You Are Loved

What Is God’s Love Like?

Why does God love us as imperfect as we are? Because He wants to, it pleases Him. It’s in His very nature to love us, no matter how sinful our actions may be.

God conquers evil with good (see Romans 12:21). He does that by pouring out His limitless grace upon us so that when we sin, His grace becomes greater than our sin. And just as it is impossible for God not to love, so it is impossible for us to do anything to keep Him from loving us.

God loves because that is His nature. He is love (see 1 John 4:8). He may not always love everything we do, but He does love us. God’s love is the power that forgives our sins, heals our emotional wounds and mends our broken hearts (see Psalm 147:3). God’s love is unconditional; it is based on Him, not us! Once you realize that God loves you regardless of what you have or haven’t done, you can experience incredible breakthrough. You can quit trying to earn His love and simply receive it and enjoy it.

The Door

As a child I was enchanted with the books from the Chronicles of Narnia Series by C.S. Lewis. The world of Narnia, Aslan and the adventures of the children intrigued me. Even now, as I read these books again as an adult, I can’t help but be captivated by the world of Narnia that greeted Lucy as stepped through the door of the wardrobe – a world so unlike that of what she had left.

This weekend as we celebrate Easter we look at another Door that takes us from where we are today into another world, another realm, another reality. This door offers us salvation, eternity, life restored and relationship with God, the Creator of all. This door however isn’t part of a mere wardrobe taking a child into a fantasy world. For us, this door is Jesus – Son of God, crucified on a cross. And the world is not a fantasy – it is the Kingdom of Heaven.

“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

The way to eternal life, the way to God is offered to us all through the sacrifice and death of our Lord Jesus on the Cross. His crucifixion all those years ago is the one time for all times sacrifice for us. The cross did what we could not do ourselves – it gave us the right to talk with, love and live with God. The Lord Jesus Christ’s death took away all our sins and His Resurrection gave us life, a new life and a new identity as a new person. His death gave us a life of freedom – free from guilt, no more reproaching ourselves and most importantly an opportunity to grow in relationship with God.

 The door is always there, it is just up to us to walk through it.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

Love Story

Do you have a favourite Easter egg? Perhaps it is the traditional hollow chocolate egg or a marshmallow one or maybe you prefer the caramel centred ones. One thing is for sure, at this time of year you’re spoilt for choice. But while the Chocolateries may think Easter is merely an opportunity to sell large quantities of chocolate shaped into eggs or rabbits and decorated with brightly coloured foil, it is more than that – much more.

Easter is a time to remember, to celebrate and to be part of the greatest love story of all time.  

It begins with Good Friday as we remember the path that Jesus took to His death. From the judgment by Pilate, the floggings, the arduous walk to Calvary, the nailing to the tree, the mocking and insults hurled at Him and ultimately to His death on the Cross.

Yet this terrible day is the greatest day – because it is the day that we were reconciled back to God. What was supposed to be defeat was victory. It is the day when sin lost its power to keep us from the Father who loves us. Good Friday recalls the day that Jesus took your sin and He took my sin and He died on the cross in punishment for it so that we could all live in fellowship and intimacy with God our Father.

“God put on Him the wrong who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with God.” (2 Corinthians 5:21 Message)

Jesus died when we were still all sinners. He didn’t wait for us to attain perfection, to be good enough to be granted forgiveness or to be worthy of His sacrifice – because we never will be. The old Hymn asks “O who am I, that for my sake, My Lord should take frail flesh, and die?” The answer is He died because He loves us. Easter is part of God’s eternal plan to bring us home and to give us life.

The wonderful thing about Easter is that it doesn’t end with the death of Jesus. On the third day our Lord ROSE again! By this He proved that He is truly God! By rising from the dead He conquered sin and death forever – for eternity – for you! That is what we celebrate!

He is risen! He is alive!
Happy Easter!

The Champion

In the 1973, in the United States, a horse named Secretariat came out of obscurity to win the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stake and the Belmont Stakes, thus winning what is known as the Triple Crown. Setting new track records in winning these races, he became not only one of the greatest race horses of all time, but one of the greatest athletes. At the Belmont Stakes, the third jewel of the Triple Crown, his performance was so awe inspiring that it stunned the world, and even today remains a notable feat.

Secretariat won the Belmont Stake by a huge margin of 31 lengths. A margin so dramatic that it was a challenge to keep him and the other racers in the same camera shot. His win is remembered as one of the most incredible events in thoroughbred racing history and one of the most amazing individual athletic achievements ever, both human and non-human. Such was his win that in the same week he graced the covers of Time Magazine, Newsweek and Sports Illustrated.

 

Phrases like “to watch him run was like a supernatural event” were common. The commentator at the time was reported to say “An amazing, unbelievable performance by this miracle horse.”

What fans did not know was that Secretariat had a secret. One that was only discovered after his death. An autopsy revealed that the horse’s heart was precisely 2 ½ times larger than the average horse of his weight. It weighed some 22 pounds!

God had given this horse a supernatural heart. He had greater capacity than any other horse in recorded history. His large heart meant that he could sustain a fast pace for much longer than an ordinary horse. Having come into the races as an outsider, judged on his outward appearance, this hidden secret quickly made him a favourite.

Through Christ in us, we all have supernatural abilities. The world may disregard us based on external qualities – status, wealth, appearance and position. But God’s standard and purpose for us goes further than that, it delves into our hidden spirits. We are living in a time when God is demonstrating His power and love through ordinary people. He is using those who have supernatural hearts – that is a heart totally surrendered to Him. Much like Secretariat, these people will become champions, emerging from obscurity to run some of life’s greatest races, demonstrating God’s power.

In other words, ordinary people living extraordinary lives for our God!

The Tipping Point

 

Tipping point :> The point at which a slow, reversible change becomes irreversible, often with dramatic consequences. The moment of critical mass, the threshold, the boiling point.

In the vaulted halls of the Vatican, home to the Sistine Chapel, amongst the glorious collections of paintings by Michelangelo and Raphael are three maps depicting the Siege of Malta of the 16th Century. This was no ordinary battle, however, and the inclusion of these paintings alongside the great Renaissance Artists is deliberate. For these paintings depict a battle that saved Christian Europe from conquest by the Islamic Ottoman Empire. It was a battle that defied all odds and proved that majorities do not always rule.

The odds for the defenders of Malta – the Knights of St John – were pitiful, yet these brave and noble Knights managed to repel the most powerful army of their time. They faced down a force that consisted of some 180 warships carrying approximately 30,000 men. Yet this great Turkish army was defeated by a mere 600 knights and some 6000 soldiers and volunteers.

The Knights of St John proved to be the tipping point for their time in History – they thwarted the power of the Ottoman Empire and saved Christian Europe. Through their determination, the tide of Islam across Central Europe was halted. They had stood against the most powerful army in the world and through their courage and endurance they had prevailed. So great was their achievement that all of Europe celebrated and honoured these noble Knights, and even their enemies recognised their courage. Still today, over four hundred years later the exploits of these valiant men are remembered and the Knights of St John continue to represent honour, courage and tenacity.

History before and after the brave Knights of St John is full of stories of ordinary people leading extraordinary lives as they stepped up to be change agents and shape their times. Churchill rallied a nation against Hitler. Martin Luther King had a dream that brought segregation to an end in the United States. Ghandi, a lawyer from India, broke the strength of the British Empire and a nation was born. In our own land, Kate Shepherd forged the way for New Zealand women to have the vote in 1893, before any other country granted women the same right. These ordinary people, born for such as time as theirs, pressed against History and transformed their world. They were the tipping point and they demonstrate that one person can make a difference.

Even more so, throughout the Bible we see time and time again, God choosing the few to overcome the many; the small to overcome the large. We see it with David and Goliath, Gideon and his 300 soldiers, and Elijah against the prophets of Baal.

In the book of Esther, we read how an extraordinary Queen saved her people. Yet her story begins not as a Queen, but as an ordinary girl who “won the favour of everyone who saw her” and secured “the approval of the King” (Esther 2:15-17). Then in her position as Queen, yet still with the threat of death, she appeared unsummoned before the King to save her people. She took a stand, found favour with the King and saved the Jewish nation. She changed the course of History.

We may not be Kings or Queens, Knights or Prime Ministers, but we are all change makers. We all have a sphere of influence. You may be just one person – one Christian in your family, one Christian in your workplace but you carry within you the King and Lord of all! Don’t underestimate your ability to influence. You affect and impact the people you are around. You can be that tipping point for change that your family, your workplace, city and nation so need.

We were all created for a specific purpose by our God. A purpose to change the world in which we live, to do His divine will. Every pawn on the chess board has a role and is needed if the game is to be won. Don’t discredit yourself if you are not the Bishop or the Queen. We are all needed. We are all planned for. We all have a role to play. We are told in Daniel that “the people that know their God shall be strong, and do exploits” (Daniel 11:32). So we can confidently and boldly step out and impact every nation and every generation.

“It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, He had His eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose He is working out in everything and everyone.” (Ephesians 1:11)

When God looks at you, His focus is not on what you don’t have. His focus is on what you do have. He doesn’t care about your limitations, your IQ, or your education – He cares about what is in your heart. He is moved by people whose hearts are wholly on Him, and He will strengthen those people.

“For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.” (2 Chronicles 16:9)

So watch for that divine connection when you’re out with friends, with family and at work. Understand that there is more to what is going on around you than “you.” There is a divine purpose from God for where you are placed and who you are!

“From one man He made every nation of men that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.” (Acts 17:26)

Resist the efforts of the world to keep you as one of the crowd. Look beyond the present conditions. Look beyond the obvious and see the future of your dreams. Ghandi did, Churchill and Martin Luther King did. They saw a future and so they stepped out from the crowd and fought for it.

It takes just one person to stand. So don’t despise the day of small beginnings -just keep on being obedient to whatever God tells you to do. Those small acts of obedience to God, those small responses to God moving in your life all count. Small becomes large – a minority becomes a majority when our God is involved.

A Queen of Persia risked death for her people. The Knights of St John fought against insurmountable odds and changed History. Something happens when a person steps out from the crowd and pushes against History. Are you going to be that someone?

You have a place in History – You were born for such a time as this!
