He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all- how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things. So be strong in the Lord and in his Mighty power. For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. ♥️✝️ Romans 8:32; Ephesians 6:10; 1 John 5:4 ✝️♥️ #therevivalofficial1 #god #jesus #love #lord #christ #alphaandomega #yahweh #kingdom #king #behold #believe #victory #trust #faith #courage #discipline #obedience #deliverer #godisgood #godislove #godisgreat #jehovah #hope #healer #redeemer #refuge #fortress #heart #helper
🖤 breathless Princess Tarakanova by #KonstantinFlavitsky The story of the Princess Tarakanova has two origins from which the #painter Konstantin Flavitsky could have drawn his inspiration. The first tells of an illegitimate daughter of empress Elizabeth the Great, who spent her days in a monastery, under a watchful eye of guards. Her last days would be spent there as well. The second story entails far more interesting details. During the reign of Empress Catherine II, a #beautiful young lady living in Italy but with her sights set on the Russian #throne presents herself to the Roman society as a #Russian #Princess. Catherine II ordered Count Orlov to travel to Italy and bring the #impostor back. The Count pretended to fall #inlove with the “Princess” and enticed her to board the ship bound for St. Petersburg. There she was shackled and taken to the Petropavlovskaya #fortress. According to #legend, Catherine ordered her imprisoned in a cell that was known to flood each time the waters in the #Neva River rose…. Historians have their own reasons to doubt the documentary claims of this painting. According to official records, Tarakanova died two years before the historic flood of September 21, 1777 when the waters in the Neva River rose 310 cm above normal levels. The #painting caused quite a furor among the members of the #royalfamily as the #secret of the #Countess Tarakanova was closely guarded and here Flavitsky presents the story and its heroine with such great mastery. The painter was subsequently forced to announce that the subject matter was drawn from a #novel that was in no way connected to the royal family. #inevitability #emotional #storm #oldmasters #art #painting

Hwaseong, Suwon's world heritage listed fortress/castle stretches for 5.7km, built in 1794 in an attempt to move the capital from Seoul. The plan failed. Should you have time to see only one fortress, this is the one.
