How, you ask? By simply addressing the roots of your life, health and relationship issues. That's what this Web site is about. It's about helping Christians live the abundant life you're entitled to. Because hurting people continue to hurt people, this site provides resources, services and products for Healed People to Heal People.

Life If you address the symptoms of your life, health and relationship issues, they will continue. That's why we prefer to identify the roots, then dismantle them according to biblical principles. Then, the symptoms will eventually go away.

Health Do you know one of the most preferred ways to distract a person? It is to inflict pain, illness or addictions in your physical body. This includes mental illnesses. That's why you’ll find information and products about health, the human body and what the Bible has to say about disease and illness on this site. Inclusive is life-changing information about the biblical roots of disease and illness. Be In Health Global owns this information and is gracious enough to allow it to be shared on this site.

Relationships My goodness, every day we have the opportunity to improve our relationships. The question is do we have the desire, the mental capacity and the willingness to give it another try. The other question is since what we've tried hasn't worked to improve our relationships, what should we do differently? Might we suggest learning how to identify the roots behind the issue -- that is what you can't see with the natural eye.

How We at Healed People, Heal People facilitate the healing process by offering personal ministry, group ministry, consulting, educational teachings and training. Our training was at Restoring The Foundations International, Be In Health Global and Pure Herbs Ltd.

Roots How do we identify the roots of life, health or relationship issues? First, we asses what happened generationally in your life and family; this contributes to your issue. Second, we present what you really believe about yourself, what you really believe about others and what you really believe about God that does not align with the truth of the Bible; this contributes to your issue. And please know that most people rarely know what beliefs they operate out of daily that is contributing to them being trapped in the same life, health and relationship issues. Next, you need to receive healing for who and what has caused pain in your life; this keeps your issue in place.

Joy We've had the privilege of seeing the Holy Spirit positively change lives on every continent using simple, biblical healing and deliverance. Be encouraged to browse the site to participate in the forums, listen to healing music or consider supporting this marketplace ministry. Your life, health, and relationships and can change for the better!

 

 



  • Success with Bladderwrack!

    My son suffered with blotchy skin and a cold sore that just wouldn't go away. He also had candida that I could not get under control no matter what I tried.

    I wrote to Solomon and he recommended the Pure Herb Bladderwrack for the both of us to get rid of excess aluminum we had.

    After two weeks my son's skin became much clearer and the cold sore he had for six months went away!

    Finally, I am able to keep candida under control. The high levels of aluminum that we had caused many of our problems and the Pure Herb Bladderwrack has halped us to eliminate the dangerous metal from our body.

    Thank you so much! I swear by your Pure Herbs. They are the highest quality and work so well!

    Ginkgo | Herb no. 5 for memory


    Ginkgo - The leaves and other parts of these ancient trees, of which there are two kinds, male trees and female trees, have been found fossilized in layers of rock from the time when dinosaurs roamed the earth. The ginkgo tree was thought to be long extinct. Then, during the last century some seeds turned up in a hollow rock in China. No one knew what kind of seeds they were. They were planted and they grew! Low and behold, they turned out to be the seeds of the long extinct ginkgo [ginkgo biloba] tree.

    Recent clinical testing has revealed both long and short term memory are improved, for all ages and body conditions, by the use of ginkgo leaves. Tests indicate ginkgo solves the memory problem caused by a condition known as cerebral ischemia [brain anemia] where the blood vessels to the brain do not carry enough blood, also sometimes described as cerebral vascular insufficiency.

    Whatever it is called, the results are impaired mental performance. Tests indicate ginkgo solves this problem. Tests also indicate, one of the ways ginkgo solves this problem, is by acting as a vasodialator [an agent which opens constricted blood vessels]. The importance of proper circulation in the maintenance of good health and the reversal of diseases can hardly be underestimated. We are indeed grateful for this gift to memory and its presence with us again today.

    Fossil records indicate, in the ancient past,ginkgo grew throughout North America and many other regions. Many people now have a ginkgo tree again for its beauty and thick shade. You might say, it has come home. Ginkgo's role in memory improvement is to bring oxygen and blood sugar to the brain and thus, normalize brain function.

    Those who suffer from hypoglycemia [low blood sugar], hyperglycemia [high blood sugar] and Alzheimer's disease  [thought disturbances occurring in the onset of senility] are benefited by ginkgo's assistance in the proper release of energy to the nervous system for normalization of mental activity.

    A Textbook of Natural Medicine, Vol. I, Ginkgo biloba, published by Bastyr College, Natural Health Sciences, Seattle, Washington, 1993, Drs. Pizzorno and Murray, presents extensive and careful research to show, as circulation to the brain normalizes with the use of ginkgo, these conditions are reversed: "... senility, dizziness, headache, lack of vigilance, macular degeneration [deterioration of the fine focus area in the back of the eye], diabetic retinopathy [fat in arteries causing poor circulation and subsequent deterioration of the image reception area in the back of the eye], ringing in the ears, hearing loss, depression, short term memory loss, angina [heart pain due to reduced blood supply], intermittent claudication [klaw-duh-ka'-shun, pain in the calf of the leg(s) due to insufficient blood circulation], impotency [when due to arterial insufficiency] and asthma [ginkgo acting as an anti-allergy agent]."

    This information clearly indicates, ginkgo can be taken for prevention of problems as well as their reversal. Certainly, in the prevention of strokes and heart attacks and those conditions mentioned, ginkgo should be considered as a valued herb.

    Dose | 40 to 80 drops 3 times per day as maintenance. 80 to 120 drops 3 times per day in therapeutic use for the reversal of serious conditions.

    Gotu Kola | Herb no. 6 for memory

    Gotu kola is a tiny, delicate water lily from the island of Sri Lanka [ormerly Ceylon] off the southeastern coast of India. This is the plant the famed elephants of Ceylon snatched up a mouthful of before going into the water for their frolic.

    The memories of these elephants were said to be phenomenal and the subject of many stories and much amazement. Guess what? People can eat Gotu Kola leaves also and their memory can improve. Memory temporarily winking out is not just a problem of the aged, as you well know. Younger folks just don't talk about it.

    If you would live, and live well, for a very long time you must have a very powerful nervous system and this is what gotu kola produces. Gotu Kola reduces brain fatigue and revitalizes worn out bodies. In many religious orders, Gotu Kola is used to correct conditions of the skin that look like fish scales [ichthyosis], and parasitic swellings of the body [elephantiasis], leprosy, syphilitic ulcers and bruises.

    Mental disorders and blood pressure problems have also yielded to the blood cleaning and brain restoring powers of gotu kola. Gotu kola also deserves its reputation as a poison antidote.

    Dose |Therapeutically and for memory, 20 to 40 drops three times per day after meals, but you must remember to take it. For a stronger nervous system, brain, and memory, a year of use can made a great difference and thereafter, 20 to 40 drops per day as a maintenance.

    To order Gotu Kola, click here.

    B.& N.C.-W [brain and nerve cocktail] | Herb no. 7 for memory

    The combination herb is used to feed and repair the glands in the brain, [pituitary, pineal and hypothalmus, as well as the brain itself] and the autonomic nervous system [involuntary nervous system composed of its two divisions, the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems]. In the eye, the autonomic nervous system is shown as a ring [the autonomic nerve wreath] about a third of the way out from the pupil toward the edge of the iris [brown or blue part of the eye].

    This combination of herbs provides alfalfa to clean and feed the pituitary, barberry for the hypothalmus, chamomile for the pineal gland, gotu kola [does not contain caffeine] for the entire brain and memory, parsley for the involuntary nervous system and black walnut with its cleaning and corrective electrical properties for all of the nerve tissues. If you don't know what else to do, clean the blood and the bowel. Clean and nourish the nervous system and repair it at the same time.

    The brain and nervous system function better when they are clean and nourished. You feel better. People seldom eat any food for the purpose of a body part or parts. They eat their food with their tongues and eyes. You can be different and consciously eat something just for your brain and nerves. B.& N.C.-W can also be of assistance in getting off of drugs.

    The B. & N.C.-W is a combination made of the following natural herbs: alfalfa, parsley, chamomile, gotu kola, barberry and black walnut.

    Dose |40 drops, 3 times per day. Also rub on temples, around the ears and back of the neck in quantities needed, 3 times per day.

  • health

    Do you take prescription meds? Does someone you love take prescription meds? Did you know that properly prescribed medication is the number three cause of death in USA according to the American Journal of Medicine?

    In 2003, my cancer test came back 80% positive and I asked The Holy Spirit to help me get through this and if He did, I would change.

    It's 2009, and I'm still keeping my word.

    When I told the Lord I'd change, I meant:

    1) change the food I purchase and the food I eat; LocalHarvest.org can help you access local organic farms.

    2) change how I treat my body internally;

    3) change how I treat my body externally through daily exercise; I eat every day, therefore, I exercise every day.

    4) not change in keeping my body sanctified as a living sacrifice for the Lord, which includes sexual morality whether you are married or single.

    5) change by educating myself on the origins of the food I purchase; You understand our food supply in America is severely contaminated.

    6) change by switching to natural herbs instead of prescription medication; for every thing that could possibly be wrong with the human body, internally, externally or mentally, the Lord provided an herb for it that's still available today. I'm a distributor for Pure Herbs and this has changed my life. For example, I used to suffer from sinus infections every six weeks. I may have one sinus infection a year, but no more. In 2009, I chose to address the spiritual roots of my sinus infection.

    7) and change about by getting off of prescription medications.

    Three Web sites that changed my life are www.BeInHealth.com,
    www.HAcres.com, www.DrDay.com and www.NotMilk.com.

    Yesterday, 6.15.09, I spoke with my mom who is trying to eradicate her high blood pressure.

    I shared with mom please do NOT overlook the spiritual side of your high blood pressure or any illness whether life threatening or a functional illness.

    Almost everybody in my mom's family had or has high blood pressure [not me, I broke the generational curse off of me and the children I have to come].

    A generational curse is not difficult to break.

    You're familiar with the scriptures that repeat many times in the Bible, satan comes to steal, kill and destroy.

    It's real and active in every believers life.

    The question is how active or passive are you in YOUR life by being an offensive participant to experience the promises of an abundant life.

    The primary mode of operation satan uses to destroy, steal and kill YOU, your family, your church members and your friends is through attacking your body.

    For some satan uses illness.
    For some satan uses drugs.
    For some satan uses sex.
    For some satan uses mental torment.
    For some satan uses food or the lack thereof.
    For some satan uses laziness or the lack of exercise.

    You see the pattern, right?

    You understand that each of the things listed above are not simply coincidence, but are controlled [unseen] by the demonic.

    You are familiar that with repeated scriptures that boldly declare the issues we wrestle with are rooted in the unseen evil, demonic, principalities.

    So, the operative question is, are you dealing with your issues, including your health issues, by eradicating them also on a spiritual level?

    You know what I don't like about satan is that he's not even that clever.

    His intelligence quota is pretty low, because he doesn't even try new stuff.

    Think about it, think about how many things are repeated in your family throughout the generations.

    Even as Christians, we tend to say comments like the following:

    "I don't know what's wrong with that boy."

    "She ought to know better, no good will come of this."

    "We raised them in the church, so they know the truth; I just can't get through."

    "The men in the family just can't seem to make a go of it."

    "Is he is jail again? He ought to stop that and take care of his family."

    "Has she had another baby out of wedlock? So how many is it now."

    Okay, so what's my point here.

    Many times we completely overlook the spiritual in our day-to-day lives.

    The active operation of generational curses simply and realistically explains many of the common statements we all hear in our families weekly.

    Now, what I wrote above, are the things that are seen.

    As you know, many of us wrestle with things are are unseen, in our minds, things we are too ashamed to let others know including spouses, children, parents and church members.

    Satan's done a good job keeping Christians focused on the symptoms and the natural, instead of being focused on eradicating the [spiritual] roots of our issues, even health issues.

    By putting an axe to the spiritual roots, then the symptoms are forced to die.

    As some of you know, I graduated in May 2009 from an int'l school for biblical healing and deliverance.

    I learned that the liver is the major organ that filters our impurities.

    I know none of us in class had ever cleaned our liver.

    Most issues in the kidney and gall bladder starts in the liver, but doctors will not share that out.

    Why, because the medical profession typically treats symptons and not the roots of your issues.

    If they treated the roots of your issues, then you would not need to come back or continue to get all those prescriptions refilled for the rest of your life.

    Oh -- just seems like there's a stream of slight greed or self-serving in that.

    One of my teachers in school, who is 72 years old, is the most healthiest person I know personally.

    He said when he cleaned his liver, he did 3 liver cleanses in a row.

    He passed more than 2,000 liver stones [no they don't hurt when passing because they are soft].

    If we don't clean our liver, the bioducts in our liver get clogged -- they have no choice.

    If you're interested, this is the Web site for the cleanses -
    www.drclark.net.

    www.LocalHarvest.org is where you can find local organic farmers for your food.

    A More Excellent Way is a book that must be in every library; you can order it here.
    The author is simply a gift from God to the Christian community. He and this book has helped many, many, many Christians -- that's all I know to say.

    If you're not a member, you can join this online Healed People, Heal People community for free here. You'll receive regular updates of encouragement wrapped in biblical truths.

    Please know that you can have lasting, healing and deliverance from any issue today. It's available and the Lord is simply waiting for you to surrender and bring your issues to the cross.

    Psalm 118:8

    It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man. Help me sweet Jesus to write this article. Okay, beloved readers, a part of this Healed People, Heal People community. Why am I stammering at the keys on my keyboard today? The Holy Spirit taught me a lesson about 10 years ago that I will never forget. It’s about s-o-m-e people, good people, Christian people, loving people, those who love you, those who surround you on a regular basis, or those who may even be in your corner.

    Psalm 118:8 declares it's better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man.

    Okay, here goes.

    We all have churches that are headed by pastors and leadership teams.

    We all have family members, some of which we love, some we don’t care for too much – and some we just can’t stand [sorry, but it’s a reality for some].

    We all have confidantes.

    We all have those fun-to-hang-out with partners.

    We all have those let-your-hair-down with friends.

    We all have those kicking-it with buddies.

    And we even have those select Christian people we like being around who will not check us when we are clearly stepping outside of the boundaries and principles of the Lord.

    We even have accountability people -- we still have a choice in how much we disclose to them.

    We all had or have secrets, some are not-so-big secrets, some are closet secrets, some are in-the-dark secrets, some are go-to-your-grave secrets, some secrets just cripple the hell out of you.

    You decide what you do with your secrets. I can tell you this, the Lord never intended for us to carry the internal weight of the secrets. Many of our illnesses come from keeping secrets. Some of our constant mind racing comes from not being able to still the secrets.

    Much of depression spurs from buckling secrets that people try to keep the lid shut down on. Many of your spiraling urges come from trying to holster your secrets. Many things we do to escape, including sleep, is to not deal with the harshness of our reality -- the secrets, the impending, unnecessary, illegitimate weights.

    We all have those ride-and-die friends – no matter what, these friends will be there for us. Make no mistake about it, this is an extremely short of list people – it may even be one person – it may only be the Lord Himself.

    But, beloved readers, you know what our Lord taught me 10 years ago that I’ve n-e-v-e-r forgotten?

    Don't ever put anyone's word, advice, counsel, approval, consent, guidance or direction above what I say, says the Lord.

    This was a very hard lesson for me to learn and live by.

    Why?

    Because some of those Christians who loved me, then, and still love me, now, gave me advice, counsel, guidance – that didn’t line up with the Word of God.

    Did they love the Lord and do they love the Lord? Yes, these Christians did and do love the Lord.

    Did I own a Bible? Yes, I did own a Bible, then, and; yes, I do own several Bibles now.

    Did I know the Word? Yes, I knew the Word and; yes, I know even more Word now.

    Did a little flicker go off inside of me when these loving Christians told me what I wanted to hear? Yes, the Holy Spirit pushed that flicker button inside of me. But, I knew what some of the loving Christians said to me over the years did not line up with the Word. [I'm not being sarcastic when I use the words loving Christians; I'm sincere.]

    They padded their advice, lined their counsel and justified it with scripture – I think the Bible calls this itching ears, on my part. And let's mention this, there are a lot of Christians, even Christians in leadership positions, who are so wounded they believe life's experiences more than they believe the Word of God. And accordingly, they give advice, counsel, approval, direction based on experience. It's your responsibility to know the Word for your life. It's your responsibility to know when scriptures are being misaligned.

    Now, what each of us reading this article knows, is that we tell people, even Christians exactly what we want them to know. An ole' pastor once told me, it’s just human nature to do this – tell folk o-n-l-y what you want them to know.

    Beloved reader, do you disclose every single, slither of information to the people you’re seeking input from? I’ll leave that for you to answer.

    I always flinch, in particular, when Christians say, “Follow your heart.”

    Excuse me, beloved readers, I am not trying to be disrespectful, but that statement above is just plain dumb.

    “Follow your heart.”

    Do you know when I graduated from undergrad, I did a Bible study for two years just dealing with the different conditions of the human Christian heart.

    You know what’s an even better question, beloved reader, Do you know what’s in your heart?

    If so, how do you know what's in your heart? What have you done about the contents of your heart?

    How often do you inspect your heart?

    How often do you present your heart to the Holy Spirit?

    Do you know what to do once the Holy Spirit has revealed the contents of your heart?

    Well – I offer several versions of the scripture below.

    Jeremiah 17:9 [NIV]
    The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?

    Jeremiah 17:9 [NASB]
    The heart is more deceitful than all else, And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?

    Jeremiah 17:9 [KJB]
    The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

    Jeremiah 17:9 [AKJV]
    The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

    Jeremiah 17:9 [ASV]
    The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly corrupt: who can know it?

    Jeremiah 17:9 [Bible in Basic English]
    The heart is a twisted thing, not to be searched out by man: who is able to have knowledge of it?

    So, beloved reader, help me understand again why so many people, especially Christians, throw out the statement so casually, “Follow your heart,” or “I just follow my heart.”

    I’m choosing to believe based on the Word of God and based on my experience in integrated healing and deliverance and based on the experience of veterans in the ministry of integrated healing and deliverance – that people, Christians, are simply making this statement, “follow your heart,” out of ignorance.

    I used to wrestle with the following questions when I really respected and esteemed some Christians who gave me counsel. Now keep in mind these were internal thoughts I had in my mind about these Christians. I am still in relationship with the majority of these Christians.

    Thoughts I had after receiving advice, counsel, direction from some respected Christians

    - but, look at their position in the community, they are so visible
    - but, look at how much they study the Word of God
    - but, look at their leadership position in the church
    - but, look at how much influence they have
    - wow, I really need to stay in their good graces, they can help me
    - but, they seem to be pretty close to the Lord, do what they say
    - I know they wouldn’t tell me wrong, I’ll do what they say
    - but, look at their walk with the Lord [what’s visible to me]

    Beloved reader, what I have painfully learned from our Lord is this scripture, It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man. Psalm 118:8

    Why do I use the phrase painfully learned? Because I had to go around the darn mountain over and over – I sound like the Israelites, right? The first time I realized the advice from the respected, respective Christians landed me in hot water, why didn’t I confess to the Holy Spirit, I’m sorry for not listening to Your whisper in my ear.”

    Each time, beloved reader, I remember the Holy Spirit placing that little flicker inside of me saying, ”That’s not the way to go;” “Don’t ignore Me.” But I yielded again and again, beloved reader, because I respected Christian people more than I esteemed the Word of God. These respective, respected Christians said what I wanted to hear and what they said aligned with my desires, my will -- a recipe for impending disaster.

    Now, in Psalm 118:8 the end of the scripture says, … than to put confidence in man.

    Well, who is man?
    Man is any human being breathing who is in your life, male or female.
    Man is any human being, Christian or non-Christian.
    Man is any human being in any income level.
    Man is any human being on any status level.
    Man is any human being in every rank of the Christian church.
    Man is any human being in your family.
    Man is any human being who is your friend.

    The beginning of Psalm 118:8 says It is better to trust in the Lord …

    Yall, I’m literally b-e-g-g-i-n-g you, trust the Lord.
    If you don’t know how to trust Him, just tell Him, He already knows.
    If you’re scared to trust Him in an area of your life, just tell Him, He already knows.
    Wherever you’re deficient in trust, ask Him to build that in you for you since you’re not able to do so.
    If you’ve not dealt with the issues preventing you from trusting the Lord, would you consider asking the Holy Spirit to reveal these things to you.
    Would you consider receiving ministry for integrated approach to healing and deliverance for these issues?
    Why?
    So, you can experience freedom in this or these areas of your life.

    Don’t have itching ears like I did; ask the Holy Spirit to remove your itching ears.
    The Holy Spirit knows that we all have desires and dreams and wills.
    He truly has better plans for us than we’re able to muster up for ourselves.
    His plans for you don’t even involve manipulation and maneuvering and dodging.

    Yall, I guess by now, you know I’m a born and breed [USA] southerner – that’s fine.
    Let's ask the Holy Spirit to reveal our spiritual blind spots.
    Let's ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the areas of our lives we’re in denial about.
    Let's ask the Holy Spirit to reveal areas in our lives where there may be self hatred.
    Then when He reveals, please, please, take action to do something about it.
    If you don’t know what to do, I’m willing to find a resource to help you, if I can’t.

    Yall, I understand that you may not disclose everything to people, but please, don’t lie to yourself. You desire the abundant life the Lord speaks of so often in scripture, right? Well, the abundant life is short circuited when we choose to do the following things:

    - pretend you don’t know the Holy Spirit is nudging you
    - cut corners to try to get what you want
    - only disclose so much information and purposely conceal other pertinent information to those you seek counsel from
    - you choose to turn a deaf ear to the Holy Spirit
    - you choose to forget that some blessings and some promises of the Lord are conditional; Have you met the
    condition(s) without compromising?
    - wrongly use scripture, people, situations, [conditional] prophecy to justify something you want
    Please remember that satan and his demons have strategy too for your life.
    And his strategy is presented very nicely, not in a questionable fashion.

    Whatever word, advice, counsel, approval, consent, guidance or direction you receive, even from Christians, put it before the Lord, please, before moving forward. And wait for His confirmation or His denial and His instructions.

    Now, let me share this with you. I know the respective Christians throughout the years didn’t provide advice to hurt me on purpose. Although we’re Christians, we are humans. We have good days. We have days when we’re not as sharp, when we’re not on point. Well-meaning, God-loving Christians have been and can be used strategically by demonic in your life -- even without them knowing it and you knowing it.

    We all recall when Jesus spoke to Peter in Matthew 16:23. Jesus was very aware that the demonic was working through Peter. Yes Peter, a man who literally was chosen and walked with Jesus. I'll keep this brief by simply asking these questions. Are your spiritual tools keen enough to discern when God-fearing Christians are off kilter who give you advice?

    Do you even know what your spiritual tools are? What do you do to improve your spiritual tools? How often do you use your spiritual tools? Spiritual tools are similar to the physical muscles in your body. They becomes stronger the more you exercise them and use them on a regular basis. Spiritual tools become stronger they more they are stretched out of their comfort zone.

    People ask me and you for advice in areas that we may be weak in. When you realize that a person is asking you for advice in an area you're weak in, do you disclose that this is one of your weak areas, up front? Do you or have you chosen to do what's in the best interest of the person by stopping the conversation and sharing in integrity that this isn't an area you're strong enough and disciplined enough to provide counsel, advice, consent, approval, direction or guidance.

    You and I ask people for advice in areas that they are weak in, but we don’t know that because they don’t disclose it [the majority of the time]. And even when we see -- through people’s repeated actions that they’re weak in certain areas, we sometimes still choose to seek their advice, their counsel.

    This is not wise, beloved reader. So this begs the question, why do we ask them? Because they’ll tell us what we want to hear. This is a clear sign of spiritual immaturity and/or lack of exercising godly wisdom in this particular area of your life.

    Psalm 118:8 reads, It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man. Please do not esteem man, woman or Christians words higher than the Word of God for your life, please.

    The Danger of Celebrating Halloween
    by Kim Daniels
    CharismaMag.com
    10.27.2009

    Halloween—October 31—is considered a holiday in the United States. In fact, it rivals Christmas with regard to how widely celebrated it is. Stores that sell only Halloween-related paraphernalia open up a few months before the day and close shortly after it ends. But is Halloween a holiday that Christians should be observing?

    The word holiday means holy day. But there is nothing holy about Halloween. The root word of Halloween is hallow, which means holy, consecrated and set apart for service. If this holiday is hallowed, whose service is it set apart for? The answer to that question is very easy—Lucifer's!

    Lucifer is a part of the demonic godhead. Remember, everything God has, the devil has a counterfeit. Halloween is a counterfeit holy day that is dedicated to celebrating the demonic trinity of: the Luciferian Spirit [the false father]; the Antichrist Spirit [the false holy spirit]; and the Spirit of Belial [the false son].

    The key word in discussing Halloween is dedicated. It is dedicated to darkness and is an accursed season. During Halloween, time-released curses are always loosed. A time-released curse is a period that has been set aside to release demonic activity and to ensnare souls in great measure.

    You may ask, Doesn't God have more power than the devil? Yes, but He has given that power to us. If we do not walk in it, we will become the devil's prey. Witchcraft works through dirty hearts and wrong spirits.

    During this period demons are assigned against those who participate in the rituals and festivities. These demons are automatically drawn to the fetishes that open doors for them to come into the lives of human beings. For example, most of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches.

    I do not buy candy during the Halloween season. Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent whether they get it by going door to door or by purchasing it from the local grocery store. The demons cannot tell the difference.

    Even the colors of Halloween [orange, brown and dark red] are dedicated. These colors are connected to the fall equinox, which is around the 20th or 21st of September each year and is sometimes called Mabon. During this season witches are celebrating the changing of the seasons from summer to fall. They give praise to the gods for the demonic harvest. They pray to the gods of the elements [air, fire, water and earth].

    Mother earth is highly celebrated during the fall demonic harvest. Witches praise mother earth by bringing her fruits, nuts and herbs. Demons are loosed during these acts of worship. When nice church folk lay out their pumpkins on the church lawn, fill their baskets with nuts and herbs, and fire up their bonfires, the demons get busy. They have no respect for the church grounds. They respect only the sacrifice and do not care if it comes from believers or non-believers.

    Gathering around bonfires is a common practice in pagan worship. As I remember, the bonfires that I attended during homecoming week when I was in high school were always in the fall. I am amazed at how we ignorantly participate in pagan, occult rituals.

    The gods of harvest that the witches worship during their fall festivals are the Corn King and the Harvest Lord. The devil is too stupid to understand that Jesus is the Lord of the Harvest 365 days a year. But we cannot be ignorant of the devices of the enemy. When we pray, we bind the powers of the strong men that people involved in the occult worship.

    Halloween is much more than a holiday filled with fun and tricks or treats. It is a time for the gathering of evil that masquerades behind the fictitious characters of Dracula, werewolves, mummies and witches on brooms. The truth is that these demons that have been presented as scary cartoons actually exist. I have prayed for witches who are addicted to drinking blood and howling at the moon.

    While the lukewarm and ignorant think of these customs as just harmless fun, the vortexes of hell are releasing new assignments against souls. Witches take pride in laughing at the ignorance of natural men [those who ignore the spirit realm].

    Decorating buildings with Halloween scenes, dressing up for parties, going door-to-door for candy, standing around bonfires and highlighting pumpkin patches are all acts rooted in entertaining familiar spirits. All these activities are demonic and have occult roots.

    The word occult means secret. The danger of Halloween is not in the scary things we see but in the secret, wicked, cruel activities that go on behind the scenes. These activities include:

    * Sex with demons
    * Orgies between animals and humans
    * Animal and human sacrifices
    * Sacrificing babies to shed innocent blood
    * Rape and molestation of adults, children and babies
    * Revel nights
    * Conjuring of demons and casting of spells
    * Release of time-released curses against the innocent and the ignorant.

    Another abomination that goes on behind the scenes of Halloween is necromancy, or communication with the dead. Séances and contacting spirit guides are very popular on Halloween, so there is a lot of darkness lurking in the air.

    However, Ephesians 1:19-21 speaks of the authority of the believer and the exceeding greatness of God's power in us [the same power that raised Christ from the dead]. It goes on to say that that Jesus is seated in heavenly places far above all principalities, power, might, dominions and every name that is named. The good news is that because we are seated in heavenly places with Jesus, the same demonic activity that is under His feet is under our feet, too!

    People who worship the devil continue to attempt to lift him up. But he has already been cast out and down! Many are blinded to this fact, but the day will come when all will know he has been defeated once and for all.

    When we accept Jesus but refuse to renounce Satan and his practices, we are neither hot nor cold but lukewarm—and the Word says that God will spit us out of His mouth. The problem with lukewarm is that it attempts to mix the things of the devil with the things of God. It is God's desire that we serve Him alone.

    Second Corinthians 6:15 asks the question, And what agreement has Christ with Belial? As believers, we need to answer that question in our hearts. We must avoid the very appearance of evil. I would not want a demon spirit to mistake me for an occult worshiper.

    There is no doubt in my heart that God is not calling us to replace fall festivals and Halloween activities; rather, He wants us to utterly destroy the deeds of this season. If you or your family members have opened the door to any curses that are released during the demonic fall festivals, renounce them and repent. I already have. Then declare with me: As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!

  • Herbs are plant food substances. This is not a scientific definition, it is a practitioners definition. It is used by the people who make recommendations about how to build better health naturally. Herbs have been used since people began eating. They are not new and they were used long before there were people who called themselves doctors or scientists and they worked and they still do.

    There is a solution to every physical problem. It was meant to be that way. It is not experimental. Since there are so many physical differences between us, it stands to reason one herb may do more for a certain person than another but do not despair. There is an herb for you too. Often there are many herbs that are especially helpful for you, just waiting, to be discovered.

    Luckily when eating an herb if the wrong one is taken, nothing much happens and if you do eat too much of it, body mechanisms usually reject it and you leave it alone.Part of the fun is discovering your herb or herbs and in the process an acquaintance with herbs that help other people is gained.

    One of the ways to tell what an herb will do is to taste a little of it. This is much easier to do with a liquid herb than a tablet or a capsule but in any case it should be done before you ask anyone else to try an herb so it will at least be known if what the label says is in the bottle, is in the bottle.

    Please accept this offer to build better health naturally. The information was written because you are respected and appreciated, and loved. Someone does care about you and would like to see you well. Herbs are your birthright. Discover yours. - Dr. A.B. Howard

    Does someone you love take prescription meds?

    Did you know prescription meds is the leading cause of death in America?


    THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN AMERICA: CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE

    Cause of death

    9/11 terrorist attacks - 2,986 killed

    Chernobyl nuclear accident - 4,000 killed

    Murders each year - 16,000

    Americans killed in Vietnam war - 58,226

    Americans killed by Vioxx - 60,000

    Americans killed by prescription drugs (each year) - 106,000

    Americans killed by conventional medicine (each year) - 783,936


    (page 99-112) “How dangerous are prescription drugs, really? The FDA insists they’re safe enough for widespread consumption, even when one drug, all by itself, has killed more Americans than the Vietnam War.

    The truth is that the vast majority of prescription drugs are not compatible with human biology. Rather then working to support human biology, they typically attempt to hijack the body’s biochemistry to achieve a desired measurable result, and a silent massacre is enacted on the people.

    NATURAL HERBS FOR IRON

    HERB NO. 1 FOR IRON

    Bilberry

    Bilberry [huckleberry] - In the 1920's the discoverer of Vitamin C, Albert Giorgy, was concerned about the spark of life and where it came from. After years of careful research he concluded it was vitamin C that put and kept the spark of life in the body. When food is eaten, vitamin C is the substance that puts life back into the food to make it part of the body's living tissue. We now know why Bilberries, black currents, chippewa pine and wild rose hips are used for so many different conditions to recover good health.

    Bilberry is a good tasting berry that contains the much sought after natural vitamin C. Natural vitamin C is not just one vitamin, it is many related vitamin C's. Therefore, we call it, more properly, vitamin C complex. Chemical vitamin C, known as ascorbic acid, is just one synthetic type of vitamin C. Bilberries contain all of this naturally occurring complex and the related substances found with it. The compounds rutin, hesperidin and bioflavidnoids are found right along side the natural C complex. These compounds are the glue that sticks your body together so it does not fall apart. Bilberries affect rapid repair of broken blood vessels and prevent them from breaking. Hence, you hear take Bilberry to prevent bruising. The result of taking the natural C complex and related substances together as an extract is that of greater activity. They are far more active than a chemical vitamin C and you don't have to keep increasing the amount as with chemical vitamin C to get the same effect. In fact, historical evidence shows, Bilberries have been gratefully acknowledged for a very impressive array of help. Many are the conditions that fall within the influence of Bilberries.

    When we look at mineral sources, Bilberries are one of the highest known sources of the mineral zinc and provide a generous source of iron, manganese and selenium. Iron is required for energy, and both zinc and manganese are closely associated with production of healthy connective tissue. Selenium takes special care to ensure proper cell division and prevent harmful mutations. These prevented harmful mutations could very well have been cancerous or bad cells. If not out-right cancerous cells, then they might have been of a type seen by the body as foreign protein, and set off a war between the body's immune system and this foreign protein. This is the case with conditions like osteoarthritis and other auto-immune or allergic reactions where the body is fighting itself. According to current nutritional research, both zinc and selenium (from natural food sources) are active in ensuring proper cell division and the prevention of cancer cell formation. Bilberries are such a valuable source of so many essential mineral complexes, it is no wonder then, that a long list of healing actions have been recorded and attributed to this marvelous wild berry.

    Here is a partial list: Bilberries are a tonic (good for all body systems), strengthen and restore eyesight (it should be noted that many and persistent are the accounts of improvement in eyesight through the use of Bilberries, including correction of macular or fine-focus degeneration of the eye), correct tonsillitis, sore tongue, laryngitis, violent continuous diarrhea with blood loss, intestinal putrefaction, bowel disorders, act as a bowel regulator, mouthwash, gargle, discourage roundworms, and ease vomiting; apply directly for skin problems and inflamed gums; gastric colitis, water retention, typhoid fever, sore tongue with white patches, wound healing, rheumatism (sore joints), bladder problems, gravel in urinary system and mucus in breathing passages. All in all, a very impressive champion of good health. Bilberries blend in with the body's natural functions to give them all a boost and herein lies their secret.

    Dose: 40 to 80 drops on or under the tongue three times per day or hourly if condition is severe.

    HERB NO. 2 FOR IRON

    HI.I.-W

    HI.I.-W [high iron] - It is the most beautiful of iron formulas and it tastes good. It is upsetting to see other sources of iron on the market that proclaim how excellent they are and their taste is downright disgusting, something like licking a rusty tin can. And, they are about as good as they taste for your body. That is because they use an iron source, just about like rust, mixed with sulfur.

    You can be assured, when iron is organized by a living green plant, it has a far greater attraction for your body cells than rust from the ground. But then, the rust and sulfur form is cheap and after a while it may severely constipate you and destroy the vitamin E in your system, as well as clog up liver functions. This is especially detrimental to pregnant women as they may become sick and the baby born nearsighted. The proof that vegetable iron is good for you is, after a short time of taking it you will probably feel a lot better, men included. With the iron ore type of iron, after a while you will probably feel pretty terrible. Iron is constantly needed to manufacture new red blood cells, especially in women.

    When the right kind of iron enters your body, in a liquid extract form, you can readily absorb it. As it hits the oxygen in the body, you feel the spark of life tickling your whole system again. It is alright to banish constant fatigue and feel frisky and stay that way. Breathe and enjoy it.

    HI.I.-W is a combination of the following herbs: Thyme, yellow dock, red raspberry leaf, indian tobacco.

    Dose: 20 to 40 drops per day. If deficient or time of menstruation, 40 drops, 3 times per day. For babies and small children, 1 - 5 drops per day. Can be rubbed into soles of feet. For older children, 5 - 10 drops per day. Adolescents use same amount as adults, as they are growing and need more of everything, even though they have not yet reached their full growth.

    HERB NO. 3 FOR IRON

    Papaya Mints

    Papaya Mints - It is a peculiarity that most of the things that are good for us don't always taste very good. This formula is an exception. For thousands of years, tradition has delegated admiration for the cooling and refreshing effects of peppermint [Egyptian remembrances to the departed from as far back as 1,000 B.C. contain peppermint as a farewell for the hereafter]. There is no adequate description for its flavor and oxygenating qualities unless you have tasted it. The same can be said for spearmint. Both of these mints have a very soothing and pleasing affect on the stomach and tongue.

    Both peppermint and spearmint are much used and loved as tea and flavoring for toothpastes, candies, mouthwashes and chewing gum. Peppermint also provides a rich source of iron for energy and is one of the truly good tasting sources of the mineral potassium for muscular strength and stabilizatiom of blood sugar. Peppermint tea expels gas and has long been a favorite of mothers for baby's bottle. This is especially useful for the gas condition known as infant colic.

    Spearmint has proven itself successful to reduce fever and correct burning urination and difficulty urinating. The ripe yellow-orange Papaya fruit is the vegetable digestaid of the south seas. It is gentle, and as a bonus, good tasting. Folk wisdom in those areas dictate its daily use as a treat and an aid to proper digestion. Modern science has now confirmed the fact that Papaya does indeed contain digestive enzymes [complex substances produced by a living system that cause changes necessary for life without themselves being changed] that do digest protein and other types of food in the stomach. Once again folk wisdom has been reaffirmed.

    The combination of Papaya and the double mints of peppermint and spearmint produce a winning team for the stomach and digestive tract, taken from all vegetable sources. Its taste is such a treat to even the most stubborn sufferers, that they look forward to its use and stop spewing out so much venom from digestive upset. For us normal digestive sufferers, we too now have a digestaid that tastes good.

    Papaya Mints is a combination of the following pure herbs: Papaya, peppermint leaf, spearmint leaf.

    Dose: 40 to 80 drops or more, if needed, as needed, at each meal.

    Spring Greens

    Spring Greens - [Source, Missouri, USA, Mr. & Mrs. William H. and Ola Dell Watkins]

    During the war between the states of North America, food became scarce and people were desperate. Desperation became the mother of invention. To prevent widespread starvation and sickness, people turned to the land and the plants that had managed to survive on their own. It was from this experience that each family developed its own unique meal from what was available at the time it was collected. It was never quite the same twice, but somehow always pretty much the same in its overall effect. Not only did people not get sick or starve [they lost some weight], they either got well or developed better health than they had previously known. As a result, many families still continue this tradition as a matter of taste, and in preference to store bought vegetables. If you want energy, the iron in Spring Greens will give it to you.

    If you want to clean the skin and purify the blood, the natural vegetable sulfur in Spring Greens will do this for you. If you desire the blood building, healing properties of spring chlorophyll (plant blood) and a gentle bowel cleanse, Spring Greens will give it to you. If you just plain have got a case of spring fever and the body is overwhelmed by having to switch from heating to cooling, Spring Greens can offer you relief.

    Combination: (As seasonally available) Lamb's quarters, inkberry leaf (poke salad), swiss chard, collard greens, dandelion leaf, narrow dock (yellow dock), radish leaves, kale, curly leaf mustard, spinach, horseradish leaf.

    Dose: 40 to 80 drops, 3 times per day

    HERB NO. 5 FOR IRON

    Three Bee's

    Three Bees - The best of three bee products are combined in this high energy, antibiotic formula. Bee Pollen [bee collected plant sperm] provides energy, the elements of new life for cell regeneration and antibiotic activity, as well as a high quality protein source and first-rate anti-stress adrenal gland nutrition. Bee Propolis [bee glue] possesses the antibiotic spark to raise immunity levels and get the life systems moving again. Putrid material is rendered harmless. Low-grade fevers disappear. Royal Jelly [Queen Bee food] is that elixir of life which extends the normal life span of an infertile worker bee from a few weeks to several years as a Queen with great fertility. Together, these three bee products provide a powerful formula for the entire nervous system. The body virtually glows with renewed vigor.

    Three Bee's includes a combination of the following herbs: Bee pollen, bee propolis, royal jelly

    Dose: 40 drops, 3 times per day. If needed to spark systems back into action, 40 drops per hour, while awake until well. Then as a maintenance, 40 drops, three times per day to stay well.

    HERB NO. 6 FOR IRON

    B.P.-W

    B.P.-W [blood purifier] - The combination effect of some herbal combinations is comparable to beautiful music played with all the necessary elements of harmony, rhythm and melody. The herbs blend and support each other and become much more than each separately. Such a combination is B.P.-W.

    Here the combined attention is to provide the strength to clean and normalize the blood stream. It cleans out anything touched by the blood, whether it be cancerous cells, tumors, yeasts and other types of fungus, germs, virus organisms, floating trash, irritating acid crystals, urea and heavy metals.

    B.P.-W also provides nourishment for the red and white blood cells as well as the bone marrow. B.P.-W can be taken with confidence to provide a generous supply of organic iron and rejuvenating materials.

    Note: B.P.-W has a companion formula known as B.C.-W [blood cleaner]. It is a matter of practitioners choice as to which is chosen for cleaning. Both are excellent blood cleaners. B.P.-W leans a little more toward also getting glandular areas to give up their poisons, whereas B.C.-W leans a little more toward also getting the organs to give up their poisons, but both will do a fine job of cleaning. In the process, many diseases just can't stay in the body.

    B.P.-W. is a combination of the following herbs: Peach leaf, stillingia, red clover, bee pollen, greasewood (chaparral), buckthorn, inkberry [pokeroot], prickly ash.

    Dose: 40 drops, 3 times per day. More can be taken, if needed, once accustomed to its effects. Take with a good bowel program to produce at least 2, and preferably 3, bowel movements per day. This handles the increased evacuation of poisons and prevents sick feeling when cleaning the blood. [See: Cascara Sagrada, C.C.E.-W, Buckthorn]

    HERB NO. 7 FOR IRON

    Yellow Dock

    Alma Hutchens cites Yellow Dock as, A favorite herb of ancient Indians, old time doctors, early settlers and herbal practitioners. Perhaps its prime function is due to its extremely rich organic iron content. Because of this, oxygen for the breath of life is combined easily with food materials for energy and to oxidize food materials and reduce them to easily eliminated ash from the depths of the cellular mitochondria [body's furnace].

    Yellow Dock is often recommended for prenatal cases so mother and baby can have proper oxygenation for a normal pregnancy. The rich supply of iron provides baby with enough iron to survive on a diet of breast milk for 6 months after birth without additional iron, as is expected.

    The solids of Yellow Dock when analyzed are up to 40% iron. This type of iron cannot be picked up by a magnet. Iron formulas often employed in the prenatal diet by modern doctors are straight from iron ore and can cause liver poison and black stools.

    Yellow Dock's iron is closely associated with the living plant processes and is easily absorbed. Modern science today will do well to recognize the relative activity rates of different types of iron rather than make false assumptions that iron filings are as good for you as Yellow Dock iron.

    Healthy mothers and babies speak much for the difference. Herbalists have traditionally used this mineral-rich plant for sore joints, blood from the lungs, tumors, leprosy, cancer, chronic bronchitis, diseased spleen, swollen lymph glands and as a valuable source of iron for male and female system.

    Rub the extract on spongy gums each evening until relief. Loose teeth are thus replaced in proper position. Use the extract for shingles by combining Yellow Dock with burdock to make an application. Apply vitamin E to the affected area. Then place a cotton cloth, with no dye, soaked in the extracts over the area followed by a plastic wrap and a cloth wrap to hold it all in place. [Ratio for this solution is 10 to 2.] Ten parts of water to one part of each two Docks. This may also be used on other types of skin eruptions and skin allergies.

    Dosage: Internally 10 to 40 drops one to two times per day. During pregnancy, 10 to 40 drops three times per day.

    Yellow Dock is good for the following: as an astringent, tonic, scurvy, skin problems, especially itch, lymphatic system, syphilis, spongy gums.

    Sources:

    HERB NO. 9 FOR IRON

    HYG.-W

    HYG.-W [hypoglycemia, low blood sugar] - Low blood sugar is a constant and ongoing problem for more people than you might imagine. Bad effects known to occur from low blood sugar could easily fill several, closely type written pages. Essentially what happens is that a person does not get and/or digest enough high quality protein and may also be deficient in the B-complex vitamins.

    Protein stabilizes blood sugar, and the requirement of blood sugar. To stabilize blood sugar problems, protein should be taken at least 3 times per day, and in some cases it is necessary to take several small protein meals 4 or 5 times per day. The B-complex of vitamins is also best taken 3 or more times per day.

    Rice bran extract is an excellent source of the B-complex. The B-complex vitamins provide a person with a sense of well being. When they are ot available, or digested, or absorbed and not present, the nerves cannot feed on the normal levels of blood sugar, and the sense of well being is lost. The major digestive organ-gland, known as the pancreas, and the anti-stress glands, knowns as the adrenal glands, go into a state of desperation in a frantic attempt to stablize vital body functions. The adrenal glands, one on top of each kidney, produce at least 2 dozen different anti-stress hormones and anti-stress compounds to stabilize the blood sugar and body.

    Many people are addicted to refined sugar and white flour types of food in an attempt to keep their blood sugar up. This causes more harm than good, as these types of refined carbohydrates [sugar and starch] are burned too quickly and, after a momentary surge of energy, are gone and leave the person feeling burned out. Eating more junk foods to solve the problem adds to the misery, because they do not contain the complete normal and natural profile of the B-complex vitamins.They actually take vitamin B's, out of the system to digest. The nervous system gets only a rapid spurt of energy, then crashes and the personality suffers. Bizarre symptoms can occur.

    In general, there is an over-reaction of the pancreas to make a hormone known insulin. Then, the refined sugar and starches from cakes, cookies, ice cream, candy bars, soda pop, sugary breakfast cereals, white bread and white pasta can cause us much grief. Some people have a steady diet of this sort of incomplete food, commonly known as junk food. A person could just as easily say robbed foods, as they are depleted of their proteins, vitamins and minerals in the refining process, to remove anything that could spoil, to increase shelf life and to look pretty.

    The point is, if it won't spoil, it probably won't digest properly. After the refining junk food gets a few unbalanced chemical vitamins and some crude elemental minerals from the ground added back to it, and then it is legally called enriched. The result is a perversion of nutrition. Eating this kind of food can produce just about any kind of unpleasant symptom around. A few examples are: headaches, skin problems, menstrual irregularities, surges of temper and/or destructiveness, inability to concentrate or reason, attention deficits, a feeling of drifting off, dandruff, hyperactivity, abnormal tongue appearances, sore mouth, sore tongue, cracks at the corners of the mouth, constipation, colds, flu, teeth problems, gum problems, over weight, etc!

    The way to break these vicious cycles of suffering is to have high quality protein, of your choice, at each meal, as tolerated, to satisfaction. Take a digestive aid with it, if necessary, adequate B-complex vitamins and, of course, eliminate the junk foods. These kinds of foods are generally composed of refined sugars such as white sugar, brown sugar [actually white sugar with a little natural coloring in it], corn syrup, white flour types of crackers, cakes, cookies, pies, assorted crummy yummies, brown breads that are spongy and not heavy when you pick them up, regardless of being called whole wheat or rye bread.

    Junk foods rely on chemical dyes, chemical flavorings and chemical preservatives to trick the tongue, make them look pretty, and extend their shelf life. Many people feel they cannot eat protein foods because they have allergies to them, or bloat when they eat them. With a digestaid, such as sweet root, they may be able to do so. HYG.-W contains the digestaids sweet root and juniper berry, as well as rice bran for the B-complex, and liquid bee pollen for protein. Rice bran provides the complete, natural, balanced spectrum of all the vitamin B's for proper nervous system nutrition and a sense of well being. Licorice root, juniper berry, and bee pollen, are a powerhouse combination for the adrenal glands, so that you have some get-up-and-go without having to crash after taking them.

    Sweet root and juniper berry not only assist the pancreas to digest food, they provide this digestive organ-gland with a helping hand to digest food. This give the pancreas time to repair itself from past abuses by sharing the digestive workload. When baffling symptoms occur and you see the person is more or less addicted to refined carbohydrates, it is a good bet to think low blood sugar and use HYG.-W.

    HYG.-W is a combination of the following herbs: Bee pollen, licorice root, rice bran, sweet root and juniper berry

    Dosage: 10 to 40 drops, 3 times per day. Increase as needed, to get results.

  • birthcontrolpills

    Do you take prescription meds? Does someone you love take prescription meds? Did you know prescription meds is the number three cause of death in America according to the Journal of American Medicine?

    Are birth control pills safe? Any drug that artificially manipulates the natural hormonal activity of the body will have negative implications and side effects.

    What is the birth control pill? How Does it work? Is it Safe?
    by Paul Weckenbrock, R. Ph.

    The birth control pill is any drug which uses artificial hormones to keep a woman from getting pregnant or from staying pregnant by interfering with her normal fertility.

    Are all forms of the pill the same?

    No. There are several types of the pill on the market, but they basically break down into two groups: combination pills and the progestin-only minipill.

    The combination type contain two artificial steroids that mimic the effects of naturally occurring hormones, estrogen and progesterone. Some pills work in a monophasic way, keeping the dosage of hormones the same throughout the pill cycle. Others work in a biphasic or triphasic manner which alters the dosage of artificial hormones two or three times respectively through the cycle of pills, attempting to produce fluctuations similar to what a fertile woman would undergo naturally.

    The progestin-only minipill uses only one artificial hormone, progestin, which is a steroid that has a progestational effect similar to natural progesterone.

    How does the pill work?

    The pill is designed to interfere with several normal functions of fertility in order to make a woman 1) unable to conceive due to temporary sterility or sperm immobility, and/or 2) unable to carry a pregnancy to term [an early abortion].

    This process can be accomplished in various ways.

    Suppressing ovulation: When a woman ovulates, hormones released from the pituitary , a gland located at the base of the brain, stimulate her ovaries to ripen and release an egg. The combination pill usually interrupts the release of these pituitary hormones resulting in no egg being released from the ovary, thus preventing pregnancy from occurring. With no egg available for fertilization, the woman is chemically sterile. The progestin-only pill, however, has a weaker effect. It generally does not suppress ovulation.

    1. Inhibiting Implantation: Another important aspect of fertility is the process by which the lining of the uterus is replenished and maintained. After an egg is fertilized, it normally implants in this lining [endometrium], drawing nourishment and sustenance. The progestin component of the combination pill and the progestin-only minipill cause the inner lining of the uterus to become thin and shriveled, unable to support implantation of the embryo [newly fertilized egg].

    2. Impeding Sperm Migration: Preceding ovulation, a woman’s cervix produces a watery mucus through which sperm swim to meet the egg. The mucus also provides nourishment to sustain the life of the sperm cells. This mucus thickens under the influence of a progestin and so impedes sperm migration.

    3.There are two other factors in a woman’s fertility that may be affected by the pill.

    Making changes in the Fallopian Tubes: Progestins lower the efficiency with which the fallopian tubes propel eggs from the ovaries toward the uterus. This can cause the embryo not to reach the uterus in time to implant successfully.

    4. Stopping a Pregnancy: After an ovary releases an egg, the woman’s cycle is controlled by a gland that is formed from the now-empty egg sack, the corpus luteum; this normally functions long enough to give an embryo time to implant in the uterus and for the placenta to begin to support the pregnancy.

    However, hormones from the pill can cause the corpus luteum to function inadequately, allowing the lining of the uterus to be shed before the embryo can successfully implant.

    In summary, a woman’s natural fertility requires several systems and organs to coordinate smoothly. The synthetic chemicals in any type of birth control pill interfere with this coordination, adversely affecting her normal fertility and any accidental conceptions.

    How effective is the pill?

    In theory, the pill reaches an effectiveness of over 99%, but in practice the rate is much lower. Between 1.9% and 18.1% of women will experience an unplanned pregnancy in the first year of using the pill.

    Surprise pregnancies with the pill are due to a number of factors. Interactions between the pill and some other medications interfere with the proper blood levels of hormones necessary for their birth control effect. These drug interactions may be significant with the commonly used low dose pill where slight alterations in hormonal blood levels can result in more frequent ovulations and hence unplanned pregnancies. Another factor in pill pregnancy rates is not following directions, sometimes due to the lack of motivation, especially in younger women [ages 15-24].

    Is ovulation always suppressed?

    No. Ovulation occurs in 2% to 10% of cycles of women taking the pill. If 60 million women worldwide are on the low-dose pill, there would be 1.2 to 6 million ovulations per cycle. This is known as breakthrough ovulation, and it is even more frequent with the progestin-only pill.

    What happens when ovulation does occur?

    When the pill fails to prevent ovulation, the other mechanisms come into play. Thickened cervical mucus may make it more difficult for the sperm to reach the egg; however, if the egg is fertilized, a new life is created. The hormones slow the transfer of the new life through the fallopian tube, and the embryo may become too old to be viable when it does enter the uterus.

    If the embryo is still viable when it reaches the uterus, under-development of the uterine lining caused by the pill prevents implantation. The embryo dies and the remains are passed along in the next bleeding episode which, incidentally, is not a true menstruation even though it is usually perceived as such.

    Does this mean the pill can cause an early abortion?


    Yes. Preventing the newly conceived life in its embryonic stage from being transported to the uterus and preventing implantation in the wall of the uterus are the abortifacient properties of the pill.

    Why haven’t I heard about this before?


    The Pill manufacturers and many in organized medicine are mainly concerned about the pill’s medical side effects and its effectiveness in preventing pregnancies and are less concerned about how the drug achieves its effectiveness.

    Unfortunately, many otherwise pro-life physicians and pharmacists find it hard to admit that these abortifacient properties exist because they would have to discontinue prescribing and dispensing the pill if they were to remain consistent in their respect for life at all its stages of development.

    Pro-abortion organizations and their lawyers readily admit the early abortion potential of the pill. In February 1992, writing in opposition to a Louisiana law banning abortion, Ruth Colker, a Tulane Law School professor, wrote, "Because nearly all birth control devices, except the diaphragm and condom, operate between the time of conception ... and implantation ..., the statute would appear to ban most contraceptives." In 1989, attorney Frank Sussman argued before the U. S. Supreme Court that " ... IUDs [and] low dose birth control pills ... act as abortifacients."

    Is It Safe? What are the common side effects of the pill?

    There is a range of risks from serious or fatal to minor and trivial. The following is a list of the most common side effects experienced by women taking the pill. These effects are dose related and not every woman will experience them, but the risks still exist. The synthetic estrogens of the combination pill cause many of these; the progestin causes others and is the only risk factor in the progestin-only pill.

    Heart and blood abnormalities

    Blood clots can form, restricting or blocking the flow of blood to critical organs and other body systems, possibly causing permanent damage. For example, a blood clot in the heart would cause a heart attack; in the brain it would cause a stroke or brain hemorrhage; a clot which moved from elsewhere in the body and lodged in the lung would cause a pulmonary embolism; in the kidneys a clot would cause a renal artery thrombosis and kidney damage; in the retinal arteries it would cause temporary or permanent blindness.

    Studies continue to indicate approximately a 2-fold increased risk of fatal heart attacks among users of the current low-dose pill when compared to non-users. This risk is lower than the risk experienced with the older high dosage pill, but it continues to be significant. Similarly, the risk of a fatal brain hemorrhage is increased 1.4 times when comparing users to non-users. Among women who smoke, there is a 12-fold increase in fatal heart attacks and a 3.1-fold increase in fatal brain hemorrhage.

    High blood pressure and alterations in the blood clotting mechanisms may be seen in women on the pill. This may contribute to a 3-11 times increased risk of developing blood clots in Pill users compared to non-users. The risk is especially great for women who smoke and/or are over 35 years old.

    Cancer

    Breast cancer has been repeatedly associated with using the pill.

    Breast cancer has been increasing at an alarming rate in recent years, especially among young women. Breast cancer will kill more than 44,000 American women this year alone, a 1991 report noted, predicting 175,000 more new cases, especially among young women.

    Why is there such an increase of breast cancer among younger women? Note first that women rarely develop breast cancer shortly after they start taking artificial hormones. It is generally not until ten or more years after usage was initiated that women develop breast cancer. Then note that in the United States, since the mid-1970s, it has been common for the pill to be prescribed for girls in their teen years.

    Common sense connects the link between giving the pill to young girls in the 1970s and the later increase in breast cancer 15 to 20 years later among women in their late twenties and thirties. This conclusion was demonstrated in a study which found that Swedish women who took the pill in the 1960s incurred a five times greater increase in breast cancer when compared to non-users.

    The increased risk of breast cancer is seen in younger, nulliparous women [never having borne children], and in long duration groups [greater than five years] of pill users. Large tumors and a worse survival rate are associated with the pill’s use at an early age.

    Will the newer formulated low-dose pills decrease the incidence of breast cancer? A consensus of understanding has not been reached, and another 10 to 20 years of experience with women using this form of the pill must be gained before more definite conclusions can be reached.

    Breast tenderness, enlargement, lumps, and milk secretions also may occur in women using the pill. Doctors are warned not to prescribe the pill to women who are known or suspected to have breast cancer. It is difficult to say what aggravating effect the pill’s hormones would have over a truly random sample of women taking the pill.

    Cervical cancer and cervical dysplasia increase among women who use the pill. How long the pill has been taken, how many sexual partners a woman has had, at what age she began having intercourse, whether she smokes, the hygiene of sexual partners and the transmission of the human papillomavirus [HPV] are also factors in cervical abnormalities. Because of these several factors, the connection of the pill and cervical cancer may be clouded over. However, there is no doubt that the promotion of the pill has resulted in early intercourse which may be the more direct cause of cervical cancer.

    Endometrial and ovarian cancer appear to have a lower incidence in both women on the pill and in those who have been previous users of the pill. Much of this data comes from studies of women who were using the higher dose estrogen/progestin pill. Currently the low dose monophasic and triphasic pills [less than 50mcg of estrogen] are the only birth control pills available on the U.S. market. It is not known if a similar protective effect will be experienced with the currently used pill. More time is needed to study this issue, and the slight protective effect is hardly a reason to take the Pill at the risk of so many other side effects.

    It should also be noted that these forms of cancer are rare and primarily occur among postmenopausal women in their fifties and sixties. Second, these cancers tend to occur in those women who had long cycles [i.e., with a prolonged estrogen-dominant phase] or those who have a family history of these types of cancer. Third, extended breastfeeding amenorrhea offers the same type of protection against these cancers since the menstrual cycle would be suppressed and therefore the exposure to estrogen suppressed.

    Liver tumors in younger women [15 to 40 years] have increased as the use of oral contraceptives has increased. Almost unheard of in this age group before the use of synthetic hormones became commonplace, liver tumors usually do not occur until the sixth decade of a woman’s life.

    A study by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer found a large peak in the 26-to-30-year age group which corresponds with the increased use of oral contraceptives in this age group. Liver cancer in women on the pill is typically associated with those over 30 who have used it more than four years, but cases of liver cancer in younger women have been cited.

    Other cancers: Skin cancer [melanoma] has also been found to increase among women on the pill. Naturally occurring estrogen is involved with maintaining healthy skin tissue. It is reasonable to suspect that exposure to the more potent synthetic estrogen in the pill increases the risk of this type of cancer.

    Cycle irregularities

    Women who take the pill have been reported to experience bleeding or spotting in mid-cycle, changes in menstrual flow, and even loss of menstruation, which can lead them to wonder if they are pregnant. For some, painful menstruation [dysmenorrhea] has been reported to worsen, even though many women take these hormones in an attempt to relieve the problem.48

    Although some women are given the pill for irregular cycles, it does nothing to improve the underlying problem causing the irregularity. Often the irregularity returns when the pill is discontinued, sometimes more severely.

    Are there other side effects?

    Yes. Some side effects are minor while some may be more severe and call for discontinuing the drug.

    The following adverse effects have been experienced by women on the pill:

    Headaches, migraines, mental depression [even to the point of suicide and/or suicidal tendencies], a decrease or loss of sexual drive, abdominal cramps, bloating, weight gain or loss, and water retention; nausea and vomiting [in about 10% of users]; symptoms of PMS, vaginitis and vaginal infections, changes in vision [temporary or permanent blindness, and an intolerance to contact lenses]; gall bladder disease and either temporary or permanent infertility, when discontinuing the pill, in users with previous menstrual irregularities or who began the drug before full maturity. Several of the symptoms, such as migraine headaches, contraindicate the use of the pill because of life endangering complications.

    Consult the Physicians’ Desk Reference at your public library or consult your pharmacist for a more complete list of the pill’s harmful effects.

    Is the pill safer than pregnancy?

    No. The health risks of the pill outweigh by far the risks of pregnancy and childbirth to a woman’s health, and any claim to the contrary is based on erroneous comparisons between healthy women on the pill and women who do not receive normal care during pregnancy.

    A precondition for obtaining the pill is routine medical care and checkups. For example: if such a woman on the pill is diagnosed as precancerous, or if some other side effect is exhibited, she has the advantage of early detection. However, many pregnant women do not receive routine medical care. A clearer picture of the safety of the pill compared to the safety of pregnancy would be made if healthy women receiving routine medical care during pregnancy and delivery were compared with women receiving routine medical care while taking the pill.

    The mortality statistics of childbirth have continuously declined since the early part of this century, mostly due to better maternal healthcare. Most of the high risk pregnancies and deliveries occur to women who have not sought proper medical attention. This is most evident in the third world where adequate health care is sparse.

    Mortality statistics of pregnancy and delivery, usually called maternal mortality, include the mortality rates due to abortion. Abortion is clearly used as birth control, preventing the birth of the child; therefore it must be included with the mortality statistics of birth control methods. In one study, 25% to 50% of the reported maternal mortality was a result of deaths from abortion.

    Fifty percent of woman taking the pill discontinue it within the first year because of side effects, the development of benign breast disease, or some abnormality of the sexual organs. Studies of pill usage do not include these women, and the result is an unbalanced picture of only the healthiest of women who tolerate the pill. This is compared with the general population of women who are pregnant.

    The fact is that there are 13.8 million women in the U.S. and 60 million women worldwide who use the pill [conservative numbers]. And there are 7.9 pill-related deaths per 100,000 women ages 15-44.

    Therefore, one can calculate that there are over 1090 deaths each year in the U.S. alone simply due to the pill.

    But I’ve heard there are no side effects with the pill I use.


    All drugs, including all brands of the birth control pill, have potential side effects. There is no telling in advance how any particular woman will react to the pill, but there is a good chance of some type of reaction. It is possible that a woman will be unaware that there is any connection between the reaction and the pill especially if it takes years to manifest itself.

    Aren’t there any therapeutic benefits from the pill?

    The only indication, or use for the pill that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration is the prevention of pregnancy in women ... as a method of contraception. Some unapproved uses, considered experimental, include its use as a morning after pill [causing an early abortion], and for relief from the symptoms of mild endometriosis.

    I’m breastfeeding my baby; can I use the pill?

    No. Artificial hormones pass from breast milk to the baby; the pill also decreases both the quantity and protein content of the milk produced.

    What is my alternative to using the pill?


    Natural Family Planning is safe, healthy and effective and it’s also inexpensive. A woman observes and records changes in her basal body temperature, the normal flow of cervical mucus, and if she wishes, the physical changes in the cervix itself. She then cross-checks these signs of fertility to follow, day by day, the natural course of her fertility cycle. No drugs, no devices, no surgical procedures, no threat of death, no side effects, no chemical abortions!

    Does NFP really work?

    Yes. Married couples can achieve a 99% effectiveness if they learn the method, correctly interpret the fertility signs, and follow the rules. One positive side benefit for couples who are committed to making this method work is the potential for a healthier marriage — psychologically, physically and spiritually.

    Scriptures: Matthew 6: 31 – 33; Psalm 37:4

    Have you ever allowed petty differences to interfere with relationships? Marriages are breaking up and churches are breaking up and fellowship groups are breaking up and prayer partnership groups are breaking up Over petty things where people are not mature enough to say when it’s all said and done, “I need you.”

    You will run into Christian people and non-Christian people who inadvertently disrespect you or inadvertently make you feel bad.

    Let’s take a look at Hannah in I Samuel, chapters 1 and 2, who’s making her annual trip to Shiloh.

    According to scripture, Hannah has been weeping, praying and pouring out her heart to the Lord.

    Her mouth continues to move; Hannah’s voice is just above a whisper.

    Since you’re probably familiar with this scripture, you remember that Eli thought that Hannah was drunk because he saw her lips moving and she wasn’t speaking to anybody else. Eli could not figure out why Hannah was murmuring to herself. In what Eli had experienced in his life, the only reason a person muttered to herself or himself, was they’d had some wine.

    Eli made a presumption about Hannah.

    Okay, the key word here is presumption.

    Eli assumed what he thought, was so, based on what he saw -- that is, what he presumed about Hannah.

    Eli drew conclusions about Hannah without having any facts.

    Has anyone made presumptions about you and been wrong?

    Has anyone disrespected you and been dead wrong?

    Has anyone thought they knew what you were thinking, didn’t check with you to substantiate the facts, and they were wrong?

    Have you ever had somebody look at you and based on what they think they see, then reach conclusions and operate on assumptions about you – they even begin to talk to other people about you based on presumptions.

    You are aware there are some people who decide they know what is going on in your life based on what they think they perceive.

    Now remember, Eli was a called man of God.

    He was anointed and appointed by God – this is very important to remember.

    Presumption has no place in the kingdom of God, and Eli, a man of God in a position of authority, presumed.

    When you presume to know what people are thinking,
    When you presume why they are doing something,
    When you presume what’s really in their hearts, you dishonor the integrity of these very people.

    Eli said to Hannah, a precious woman of God, “How long have you been drunk? Get rid of your wine.”
    Eli did not ask Hannah any questions to gather facts and to be respectful of her.

    He did not ask, “Have you had some liquor Hannah [this one time]?”
    He did not ask, “Do you drink regularly?”
    He did not ask, “Are you in a drunken state Hannah; I’m concerned about you?”
    Eli presumed Hannah had been a habitual drinker.
    Now -- if we’re remotely honest, most of us would have been insulted and offended, especially since Hannah was tarrying before the Lord.

    Can’t you just imagine how Hannah could have felt?

    Do you wanna know why I had to type this article for you, beloved reader?
    Do you wanna know why I so respect Hannah, dear reader who’s still being healed and delivered just like me?

    Hannah was focused.
    Hannah was so focused, she didn’t forget her purpose.
    Hannah was so focused, she chose not to operate in offense.
    Hannah was so focused, she chose to interact with Eli in a posture of l-e-g-i-t-i-m-a-t-e submission.
    Key word = l-e-g-i-t-i-m-a-t-e.
    Hannah was so focused, she remembered and let Eli know that she needed him to achieve her goal.

    Beloved reader, you can’t afford to take the well-intentioned people in your life and begin to set them aside, and break fellowship and relationship with them, so that you end up isolated and unto yourself. The enemy knows when you are walking by yourself, you can get ambushed. You and I are prime prey for the enemy when we isolate and withdraw.

    When we have Christian companions walking with us, the enemy has to think twice about attacking us. He knows the power of agreement. He knows the power of unity. He, satan and his demons, takes the good intentions of people that cause us to be so offended and cause us to feel so disrespected that we dis-fellowship with these Christian and non-Christian people. Oouchh!
    Ecclesiastes 4

    Beloved reader, some of the people who are getting on your nerves, not all of them are your enemies. Some of them are people God has brought into your life, but you have to learn how to navigate. For example, Peninnah, was a bona fide enemy of Hannah. Eli was not Hannah's enemy, although she could have easily chosen to exclude or distance him from her life. Hannah knew Eli was a divinely appointed person in her life.

    Beloved reader, building good, solid relationships is not easy. You know this, I know. Don’t let taking flight, be your first tendency. It takes work, on your behalf, to be big enough, to be mature enough, to work through some of these l-e-g-i-t-i-m-a-t-e offenses. And yes, the person, the people, were wrong.

    We need the imperfect Christian people, God has appointed in our lives.
    We need the imperfect Christian people, who will presume sometimes and come to us in attack mode.
    We need one another desperately.
    You need the support of those God has raised up to be in your life – to achieve your destiny, to get through this mental valley your in.

    Do you have enough grace in you, to initiate the process and go get the issue straight with the person?
    If you don't, let's ask the Holy Spirit to impart more grace to us for a specific issue with a specific person.
    Oouch!

    As Christians, the last place we expect to be disrespected is in the church and by church members.

    But may I share something with you beloved reader, the majority of Christians who come for personal, confidential, integrated healing and deliverance ministry, have been disrespected or even abused repeatedly by Christians in leadership positions either in the local church or in the marketplace i.e. your neighborhood, your professional groups, your workplace, your exercise partners, your family, etc.

    If you’ve not read I Samuel 1 – 2, be encouraged to read it so you can know how Hannah respectfully and calmly explained to Eli her issue, her condition and her need of his help in her life. Hannah even goes a step farther, and reconciles. Oouch!

    NATURAL HERBS FOR DIABETES

    My people perish for lack of knowledge. Hosea 4:6 For all of you who desire answers to physical problems and desire to build better health naturally here is some information on the historical use of herbs.

    The natural Pure Herbs information shared below about arthritis is an excerpt from the book Herbal Extracts: Build A Better Health With Liquid Herbs.

    This information is not intended to be a substitute for medical advice by licensed physicians. A reader should consult a physician regularly in all matters relating to medical problems, especially in matters of diagnosing, treating or curing diseases or other physical or mental conditions.

    Herbs are plant food substances. This is not a scientific definition, it is a practitioners definition. It is used by the people who make recommendations about how to build better health naturally. Herbs have been used since people began eating. They are not new and they were used long before there were people who called themselves doctors or scientists and they worked and they still do. There is a solution to every physical problem. It was meant to be that way. It is not experimental.

    Since there are so many physical differences between us, it stands to reason one herb may do more for a certain person than another but do not despair. There is an herb for you too.

    Often there are many herbs that are especially helpful for you, just waiting, to be discovered. Luckily when eating an herb if the wrong one is taken, nothing much happens and if you do eat too much of it, body mechanisms usually reject it and you leave it alone. Part of the fun is discovering your herb or herbs and in the process an acquaintance with herbs that help other people is gained.

    One of the ways to tell what an herb will do is to taste a little of it. This is much easier to do with a liquid herb than a tablet or a capsule but in any case it should be done before you ask anyone else to try an herb so it will at least be known if what the label says is in the bottle, is in the bottle.

    Please accept this offer to build better health naturally. The information was written because you are respected and appreciated, and loved. Someone does care about you and would like to see you well. Herbs are your birthright.

    Discover yours.

    Culver's Root | 3rd Pure Herb for Diabetes

    Culver's/black root is a native North American plant is well established in Native American herbal medicine. In France, the herb is known, and appreciated, as Veronique and in Germany, as Leptandrawurzel. This pure herb Black Root was introduced by Dr. Culver into white man's medicine and is hence also known as Culver's Root.

    In the South, where it is still used extensively in folk medicine, it is known as Black Root. The very broad range of maladies, with seemingly no specific origin, which respond favorably to this herb, make it easy to understand why it is so widely and effectively used throughout the South for many kinds of the miseries.

    Certainly, Black Root is, observably, a good bowel cleaner, but much more. It also works especially well on the vital area of the duodenum [first 12 inches of the small intestine], where acid treated food from the stomach meets with the anti-acid secretions in the small intestine and produce a great deal of the body's heat.

    It is vital to the body that this area be balanced between acid and anti-acid activities, otherwise so many kinds of unpleasant disorders and just plain, feeling bad and miseries can occur. Black Root works on lazy and or congested conditions of the stomach, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, both the small and large intestines and restores them to normal and balanced activity.

    Here is a partial list of disorders for which Black Root is given effectively: to remedy fevers [including serious types], expel worms, jaundice [yellow whites of eyes and skin due to congested liver and gall bladder and or infection], swollen glands, infant diarrhea, chronic constipation, syphilitic impurities, sallow complexion, dull frontal headache, thick and white coated tongue and to remedy the condition of pleurisy [excess fluid accumulation around lungs and or heart, with stabbing pain and shortness of breath, short, dry cough, chilliness].

    Dose | 40 to 80 drops each evening. Follow with a little juice, if desired, as its taste is bitterish and somewhat acrid. In stubborn cases, take 3 times per day.

    In serious cases, give hourly, as needed, 10 to 40 drops and at the same time rub into affected areas, [abdominal and or chest areas] in quantity needed to cover the area.

    False Unicorn Root | 4th Pure Herb for Diabetes

    The uses are as varied as they are useful. When kidneys lose protein into the urine, as in Bright's disease, large, persisting bubbles remain on top of the urine.

    This is corrected by False Unicorn Root; as is the condition known as diabetes. When there is an agony or lack of tone in the kidneys or uterus, think False Unicorn Root; as well as in relaxed vagina. Nor are the healing powers of this root confined to the female system. Prostate problems, as well as involuntary loss of semen without orgasm, yield to False Unicorn Root.

    It can be used to correct almost any problem in the reproductive system of either the male or female body. So gentle is this root, that it is also used for a stomach that would reject almost anything else to repair it. If this were not enough, tape worms have been expelled by its use.

    When mixed with Crampbark, fertility has occurred in the most amazing cases where it was thought absolutely impossible due to a variety of good medical reasons. Please, do not use for pregnancy or impotency until the general system is strong enough to bear such activity. When used to promote fertility, mix with Crampbark.

    Dose | 40 drops 3 times per day for the prospective mother and father, taken faithfully for up to a year, if necessary

    Jerusalem Artichoke | 5th Pure Herb for Diabetes

    These are actually the tubers, or potatoes, on the roots of tall growing, small, yellow flowered, wild sunflowers. They require no insulin hormone, from the pancreas, for their digestion, and, as such, are a safe source of carbohydrate for use by diabetics or those suffering from low blood sugar.

    This sunflower is probably one of the most competitive, successful plants in nature. Once you get a start of the plant in your garden, it spreads from its roots with great determination and is hard to kill. An excellent source of food for all.

    One of its primary virtues is a very active enzyme system. The digestive body processes receive a direct and immediate boost. You do not have to be diabetic to use this food from the roots of the wild sunflower.

    Dose | 40 drops after each meal. In more serious cases, one teaspoonful after meals.

    Protein | 6th Pure Herb for Diabetes

    [High quality pre-digested protein fraction of milk] Milk has often been introduced as nature's most perfect food. It probably would be if it could be digested. 18% of the North American population, for instance, has a milk intolerance to cow's milk. That means, for them, milk is a foreign substance that cannot be properly digested. Hence, allergies, skin problems, colds, flu and worse occur.

    This is unfortunate when a person cannot eat the food that might help them. Milk was meant to be a fully sustaining diet for the young, in humans, for at least the first six months. Now, if you could find a way to digest milk, it could become one of the most important protein sources in the diet. A way has been found. Digestive enzymes [proteins that break down food substances] have been added to the finest proteins in milk.

    The result is a life-sustaining source of very high quality protein with very few calories. Remember, cancer patients die, finally, unless mishandled through ignorance, from protein starvation. This can be prevented by giving an adequate protein intake of high quality digested protein.

    For the normal person who wishes to slow down the ravages of aging and its sorrows, protein, vitamins and minerals come to the rescue. Take enough so that you see the difference. For training athletes, a protein supplement, plus protein in the regular food, gives a double intake of protein for rapid development. Heal injuries and surgical operations quickly with increased protein intake.

    To stabilize high or low blood sugar levels, an adequate amount of high quality protein intake, taken frequently and well digested, is vital for normalization of either condition. For young women developing tissue integrity, protein is a must. It may take several months to re-develop true natural stamina from adding adequate protein to the diet, or longer, if under continuing stress. Think about it.

    A person could have gotten worse under stress. To not get worse and actually get ahead of the game is quite something. At any rate, what else would you have been doing? Hence, be patient and rich rewards will be yours, my friend.

    Dose | 40 to 80 drops, daily, following meals, or if need be, in place of meals. If diabetic [high blood sugar] or hypoglycemic [low blood sugar], then up to 1 tsp. or more taken 5 times per day

    Elecampane | 7th Pure Herb for Diabetes

    Uses | Sugar diabetes, mucous membrane irritation, heaviness of pelvic organs, bronchial complaints, tonic, expectorant, emmenagogue [encourage menstrual flow], diuretic, sweating, deobstruent, skin disorders The mystery of sickness has long plagued mankind. There is little doubt that most of our systems today need what the car industry jargon calls a major overhaul. Indeed, most of us could use this and Elecampane performs just that service. With the pure herb Elecampane, parts of the body are cleaned, renewed and reset for proper function.

    Since the time of the Greeks, Elecampane has discovered its use in diabetes. They declared it to correct the sweetness of the urine. Elecampane is a powerful herb much sought after in the field of herbalogy. It may be employed to promote the correct function of the organs of the body.

    Elecampane, gentian, juniper berry, and ginger perform powerful service for failing digestive systems as a digestaid. Since the time of the noted herbalist, Nicholas Culpepper in medieval England, Elecampane has been used for fluid retention, firming gums and lessening tooth decay. In conditions where the body is wasting away, Elecampane and echinacea will restore new vigor and zest for life.

    Dosage | 10 to 40 drops after meals. If on insulin, advise the prescribing physician so the insulin dose can be reduced as the sugar problem is corrected.

    Hibiscus Flowers | 8th Pure Herb for Diabetes

    Contain an astonishingly large amount of two valuable trace mineral elements, chromium and selenium. While it is true that many sea vegetables do contain these trace elements as well, no other single herb has been found with levels as high for these two vital trace elements combined, as in the flower petals of this splendid tropical and sub-tropical flower.

    In order for us to tolerate and use the glucose [blood sugar] normally present in our blood stream, chromium is needed so the nerves and brain can function properly.

    The body makes a substance with chromium in it called glucose tolerance factor. With this glucose tolerance factor the body can then produce and use the hormone, correcting the disease condition know as sugar diabetes [where insulin is not produced in sufficient quantity or even at all].

    The trace element selenium functions much like the oil based vitamin complex known collectively as vitamin e, when it comes to destroying harmful cancer causing compounds in the body, known as free radicals.

    Selenium does this by protecting the genetic machinery of the cell nucleus or cell headquarters, when it is in the process of division to form new body cells. Selenium also corrects heart and circulatory diseases by preventing the break down of the circulatory system.

    Dose | 40 to 80 drops 3 times per day

    Yarrow | 9th Pure Herb for Diabetes

    Uses | Vulnerary [healing], stimulant, tonic, diuretic, high blood sugar The honorable Greek hero of legend, Achilles, said the juice from fresh Yarrow put into the eye will take away redness. The American Indian knew Yarrow as a swift remedy for the rundown feeling and indigestion.

    He further used Yarrow as a remedy for increasing the urinary flow from the kidneys. Although sweating has become socially unacceptable, it is essential to the health of the skin. For those able, sauna and exercise are recommended. Yarrow settles nerves and thus reduces high blood pressure. It relieves shortness of breath and wasting of spinal marrow.

    Its list of successes is legion. Beneficial results in this partial list confirm its revered status among herbalists: childhood diseases, including infant diarrhea, uterus problems, Bright's disease [egg white material in the urine], gas, piles, sore nipples, fistulas, flu and hair loss. Yarrow may be taken for involuntary loss of urine, bed wetting, spitting up of blood, as a nervine and as a remedy for common colds and high blood sugar.

    Dosage | 30 to 60 drops three times per day in fluid or under the tongue

    DB.8-W | 10th Pure Herb for Diabetes

    This is a combination herb. [diabetic 8] The eight herbs of this combination are all known to have, by themselves, corrected high blood sugar for many individuals. Every case of high blood sugar is not alike.

    There are different causes that can plague the pancreas and its proper production of the hormone insulin to break down blood sugar and provide energy for the nerves and brain. The idea here is to put all the known solutions into one team and use a double-barreled-Texas-shot-gun approach to clearing the hall; point both barrels, close your eyes, squeeze the triggers and let the problem have it.

    Although the complete knowledge of how some herbs work is not fully known, we can tell by what they do, something about how they work.

    In this combination herb DB.8-W we have the following pure herbs. The Pure Herb Lapacho that is known to kill and dissolve bad cells sometimes known as cancer.

    Elecampane cleans and reconditions the entire digestive and respiratory system. All things generally work better when they are clean. Mugwort is known to kill parasites, including those that can affect the pancreas.

    Golden Seal is an herb that can perform many functions of discretion depending on what it finds to be corrected: lowering blood sugar, performing as a first rate antibiotic, as well as reducing inflammation of veins and arteries.

    Blueberry Leaf may provide minerals and trace elements that correct pancreatic function, as well as cleaning and toning of the area.

    Bugleweed helps the body retain valuable protein leaking through the kidneys and thus, helps stabilize blood sugar if high or low.

    Gentian is a digestaid that gives direct assistance to the pancreas, as well as the stomach, liver, gall bladder and small intestine.

    Yarrow provides a rich mineral array that calms and repairs the nerves, including those that go to the pancreas. The idea here is, just about any contingency is covered and something, or the combination of some things there of, is bound to work and may do so powerfully.

    Combination includes | Lapacho, Yarrow, Blueberry Leaf, lecampane, Golden Seal, Gentian, Mugwort, Bugleweed

    Dose | 40 to 80 drops, 3 to 4 times per day

    Minister G. Craige Lewis

    I listened and watched several videos videos by Minister G. Craige Lewis. Below, I've typed notes from the revelation the Holy Spirit has given him. I thank God for imparting different callings and revelation to people within the body of Christ. Enjoy and please send a link to this article to as many Christians as you can. Thank you.

    HIP HOP MUSIC -- There’s something that’s now rocking America; it’s worst than a bomb. It’s now created a bunch of young [Christian and non-Christian] people who totally defy order. The churches have now embraced it, hip hop, and the whole world is being rocked by the impact of it. The enemy started planning this demonic hip-hop strategy in the Zulu nation in Africa and even all the way back to Pharaoh. The enemy began to prepare something to catch and captivate the minds of young people to pull them straight into his own belly. This is the hip-hop culture. This means church youth [and adults] will and are beginning to worship the devil through hip hop music. It’s plain and simple. Our youth [and adults] need deliverance from this because the music and videos have created an open door into their young lives.

    Why do Christian parents allow their children to buy clothes that promote godless, perverted artists – like Sean Jean, Rocawear. Biggie Smalls, when he was living, had a group called The Junior Mafia – it was broken into three groups. Each group was called a 6. The entire junior mafia was called 666. Right before Biggie Smalls died, he was preparing to start a clothing line to be named 666. And had this come to fruition, would Christian parents have allowed their children to purchase these clothes and wear even wear them in the house of God. Of course, 666 is the mark of the beast. So what’s a simple strategy the devil uses to promote the anti-Christ agenda, he raises up superstars – like Biggie Smalls, like Beyonce, like Jay-Z.

    Russell Simmons [former husband of Kimora Lee Simmons] is the owner of Phat Farm clothing line. His house looks like a gym and in his basement he has a statute of Kali. Kali is the Indian yoga goddess of death and destruction. He prays to this statue every morning. Kali had followers that would worship her stature back in the 19th century. They sacrificed money, jewels and possessions to this goddess. When people came into the temple to worship Kali, men came into the temple to beat up whoever was worshipping Kali. They were robbers and thieves. These men would put the jewels in their mouths and hide all of the possessions they stole. These men were named thugs. Russell Simmons is pegged as a godfather of hip-hop and he worships the goddess that rules over these thugs. The word thug is synonymous to the hip-hop culture. Many people in hip-hop refer to themselves as thugs. There is a new show getting ready ready to air [at the end of 2009] about Tupac titled Thug Angel.

    These artists in the hip-hop culture begin to take on thug characteristics and conjure up and channel these very demonic spirits of the thugs back from the 19th century. [There are pictures available to compare facial expressions of body mannerisms so you can see how identical.] 50 Cent, Slim Thug, Mike Jones, Young Buck, Lil John – these guys are glorifying being thugs. This is demonic worship or familiar spirits as scripture calls it. Notice the facial expressions of these hip-hoppers [view videos on YouTube by Minister G. Craige Lewis]. In the form of entertainment, satan is using these hip-hoppers to promote the anti-Christ agenda. Yes, they even put their extravagant jewelry in their mouths, just like the thugs from the 19th century that stole from those who worshipped the idol god Kali in the temple.

    Jay-Z calls himself jehovah god. He believes he is god. He does not believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He believes the Black man is god. His clothing line is Rocawear. And why are Christians buying these clothes and even sporting them to church? He has an album called The Black Album and there’s a song on there that you have to play in reverse. These are the lyrics when the song is played in reverse – 666, murder, murder Jesus, 666. [The video of this song being played backwards is posted on this site for you to hear.] Yes, these are the subliminal messages Jay-Z is sending to those listening to this song. And why are Christians supporting him again? Have you noticed that hip-hop clothing is in every department store now. Wake up saints! We wonder what's wrong with our youth and young adults. We wonder why the atmosphere in our homes are not peaceful. Well -- this hip-hop music and the videos create many open doors for you, your children and young adults to invite the demonic right on in to your home, car and life.

    Remember the old song, Another One Bites The Dust. When that song was played backwards or in reverse, it said, I like to smoke marijuana. When kids were interviewed, the kids said, they just wanted to get high, they wanted to smoke weed. The kids and adults didn’t have any idea why these thoughts and urges were coming upon them. Christians, saints, believers -- there are only two forces in the world -- God who was Jesus in the flesh and satan. God who is available to us now through The Holy Spirit is omnipotent. As we know, satan can only be in one place at a time. So, what does satan do? He uses demons to do his work. He has assigned demons everywhere. To you, your family, your community, your church, your denomination, your city, your country, your institutions, your governments, your companies, your vocations, and, of course, the media, education and entertainment industries.

    The following article is property of EX Ministries' Web site. The information that Charisma did not publish!

    A few months ago we were approached by Charisma magazine to do an interview. We have been asked by several national talk shows and publications to give interviews. We always pray and proceed with caution. EX Ministries is not in the business of seeking to promote our cause or message through nationally distributed magazines, however when we were approached by Charisma, we agreed to do the article. We agreed partly because, Charisma has a reputation of being edgy and also they informed me that they were doing an article anyway, whether I agreed to the interview or not.

    So I gave them the whole story and answered their questions only after they promised that they would print exactly what I said. Further more, I found that just a year or so prior to this, they had released an issue with a very lengthy cover story on holy hip hop and its use in the black church. I hoped that they would give us the same consideration and print the information we gave them so that it would answer questions and warn others about the dangers of hip-hop.

    In the February 2007 issue, they printed the article about us, and much to my surprise, they were very reserved with editing my answers and hardly printed any thing that we addressed in our interview. Although we do not feel the article was directly negative towards our stand, we do feel that the meat of the matter was never really dealt with. I would think that this information would be important enough to discuss with as much intensity as the article they did on holy hip hop, but once again, the booty shaking, grilled mouthed, inmate mimicking, embarrassment to our race, hip hoppers, were lifted up and the truth behind hip hop was snubbed.

    Since Charisma didn’t print our interview in its original format, we decided to give you the full list of questions and answers uncut and unedited, as I corresponded with their journalist. This is the information that the 700 Club, Gospel Today, Charisma, and many others will not print for whatever reason.


    Charisma Magazine Artical Uncut

    JB of Charisma Magazine -What is the goal of your DVD series The Truth Behind Hip Hop?

    G. Craige Lewis - Actually, we have no goals for the DVD because we never pursued or planned to record a DVD. One of the most dangerous things that I believe has infected the body of Christ is self-promotion. Yet, this is what most pastors or traveling evangelist are told they must do to get the word out. If the word they were trying to get out was their own then promoting it would be fine. However, if its God’s Word then I believe that God is responsible to promote it. The Truth Behind Hip-Hop is definitely an example of that. The series came about as a result of my traveling and preaching The Truth Behind Hip Hop for two years prior to the DVD. The 1st DVD was recorded in 2002 at the request of a ministry in my area. Initially, I turned them down, because I didn’t want to change the way God was getting the message out. However, after I prayed, the ministry approached me again and the Lord told me to let them record it. The recording didn’t cost me a dime of my own money and besides that, we never mass-marketed it, signed a distribution deal, or tried to promote it ourselves. Yet, through word of mouth and just making them available on our site quite a few people have ordered the DVD’s. What are my goals and desires for the DVD’s? I never planned for DVD’s in the first place. Simply put, I want what God wants and that is for every believer to deny himself and follow Christ!

    JB of Charisma Magazine -Your message on secular hip-hop is clear, however, I didn't see where you offered an alternative or solution to what our young people should be listening to. Could you please explain further on this?

    G. Craige Lewis - This is dealt with in our 3rd DVD, Antichrist Superstar. We believe that God is not an alternative! He should never be put in the position to replace something that should have never been there in the first place. Consider this, a young person is saved and delivered from an addiction to drugs and the church gives them holy drugs as an alternative? This is absurd. Yet this what so-called holy-hip-hoppers are doing. That young person doesn’t need an alternative drug; the drugs should have never been in their lives in the first place. We teach young people that Jesus Christ is the WAY! Seek him and find him and you will know then what is good and acceptable according to the unction that is within you, called the anointing! We are here to push people into the face of God not by offering replacements, but rather using the written word of God and exposing the darkness and deception that exists in their lives whether through music, or any other form of idol worship. God is first. Once you seek him, you will know in your heart what is good for your mind and soul. Some people think that I am anti-music. As a musician and former producer, I have recorded plenty of music; I have friends who record good Christian music; and according to some trends in ministry, I should be taking the bad stuff and then selling them my stuff—but God has not told me to do that. I preach the message that God has told me to preach and let the Holy Spirit, PASTORS, YOUTH PASTORS, and parents do the rest.

    JB of Charisma Magazine -What are your feelings toward the holy hip-hop movement?

    G. Craige Lewis - Holy hip hop is ridiculous. It makes no sense. It's just another tool of the enemy to make our young black males act, dress, and behave in a manner that is only beneficial to a rap star and those that profit from it. Although, these antics may be entertaining to some, to the average black man, these behaviors are roadblocks that halt their forward progress in the true culture we live in called the American culture! Dressing like gang members, wearing your hair like women, sagging your pants like inmates, and speaking broken English is, by the American standard, unacceptable behavior and will continue to be a hindrance in the future of our generation. Why would a church embrace that? Why would a church promote that? Out of desperation, many churches are resorting to holy thugs and gospel gangsta's to entertain their youth while the adults are worshipping. You see, you can't minister to teens about self-love, self-promotion, self-empowerment, and all the fluff messages that our new mega-church era is overrun with. Kids won't sit through, what I call the top-pop sermons of the neo-penecostal movement: Miracle, season, harvest, breakthrough, favor, destiny, and purpose. Only adults will chase that stuff. Kids want it real. Therefore, to keep them entertained without a true heart for their souls, you must do what is popular to them. You must mimic the world, follow the world's lead, and subscribe to the current trends and fads if you don't have a true call to minister. Therefore, the holy hip hoppers have found a way to masquerade as the answer while they sell their music and promote themselves. They sound just like the secular stuff. They look just like the secular stuff. They even listen to the secular stuff to get their sound and flavor. So, all they really do is build the desire for the kids to go out and get the real stuff but just do the imitation while at church, cause that's what is available!

    JB of Charisma Magazine -Jesus translated the gospel into terms that people could understand [i.e. parables and storytelling]. Do you feel this can be OK for our culture as well? Can hip-hop be used in this way? Why or why not? I think of it as the same as different publishing companies providing different translations of the Bible. I also think of Paul's verse that said he is all things to all men [1 Corinthians 9:22], except a backslider and unrepentant sinner, of course!

    G. Craige Lewis - First of all Jesus didn’t translate the Gospel He was the Gospel, the Gospel is the record of His life, death and resurrection. Secondly, He didn’t speak in parables so that people could understand. Ironically, it was just the opposite: He spoken in parables so that the truth would be hidden to those who thought themselves wise and prudent.

    Matt. 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

    Matt. 13:10 And the disciples came and said to Him, Why do You speak to them in parables?

    Matt. 13:11 Jesus answered them, To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been granted.

    Matt. 13:12 For whoever has, to him more shall be given, and he will have an abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has shall be taken away from him.

    Matt. 13:13 Therefore I speak to them in parables; because while seeing they do not see, and while hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.

    If anyone has seen any of our DVD’s or have ever heard me speak, they will know that we teach and preach that hip-hop is not just a genre of music. Hip-hop is a lifestyle. It is a manner of life. When a person comes to Christ He changes his lifestyle. Furthermore, hip hop's origin causes it to be useless when it comes to ministry. The word hip hop, according to the founders of the culture and the pioneers of the music art form, was first used in the clubs by the Sugar Hill Gang. Remember that song that said, hip hop, hippy to the hop, don't stop rocking ...? Well, that song was using the two words hip hop to describe women's booty's shaking to their beats in the club. Basically, in it's simplest form, hip hop means booty shaking! Your hips hop to the beats. Just look at the last twenty-years of hip-hop videos: the clothes changed, the music changed, even the lyrics changed but one thing that always remained the same is the gratuitous camera shot of girls hips hopping. We can quote “I became all things to all men …” all we want to; but I don’t think Paul ever meant that he would make the people’s booty shake to win them to Christ. Moreover, how in the world can you have holy booty shaking? Sure, the youth will come to shake their butts and throw up their hood signs, but will they be changed? We have seen millions of youth saved, set free, and delivered, and we have never used any kind of music to draw them.

    JB of Charisma Magazine - Since I have begun to research this article I have come across some interesting observations. If it is OK, I would like to explore these with you. It is said that hip-hop culture can be looked at the same as American culture. Both have their up sides and their down sides. If you showed someone from another country all the American strip clubs, bars, jails, and ghettos, perhaps they would see America in a terrible way. But if we showed that America also had churches, good will and charity organizations, sports, great universities [that is up for argument, but anyway] :-)), one would see American in a more realistic light. It has been said that the hip-hop culture is also the same way. The bad is very bad, but there are very positive things that come out of the culture -- creativity, holy hip-hop, political voice, a point of connection to express and release the pain of this generation. How do you feel about such comments/observations?

    G. Craige Lewis - Hip-hop is a sub-cultural movement, and cannot be compared to an ethnographic or demographic culture. A subculture is defined as a group with distinctive characteristics within a larger culture. This is why we say that hip-hop is at best, a subculture. Furthermore, its not a movement based on it's own concepts but it is a subculture that uses basic deconstruction of words and concepts to cause those that are apart of it to strive to be more visible in our present society. Initially, hip- was created out of lack and fatherless-ness. Young boys whose father's were absent began to adhere to the streets rather than abiding by the rules that govern success in society. The streets life became their expression and selling drugs, murdering, and fathering illegitimate children became their motes operandi since they had no authoritative male figures to look up to. This birthed the clothing, the language, and the social rejection that gave way for this subculture to emerge. All that we see now is a result of lack and fatherless-ness. Should we adapt to that? Or should we show a better way? Should we promote Christian gangsta's and holy thugs? Or should we teach them that the street life is not the only way there is? There is no way to compare the American culture with a street life subculture that was birthed out of rebellion and recklessness. You can't rebel against a culture that you are apart of and expect to excel in that cultures system. So, if you are not a rapper or DJ or some other occupation that is financed by the subculture of hip hop, then you won't make it in the true American culture. Rebellion will only label you an outcast or reject and cause you to be ridiculed and immobilized.

    JB of Charisma Magazine - Another thing I would like to better understand is that you mentioned that hip-hop comes from the devil and that it is satan's trick to cause people to worship him and receive his mark. Did you mean all hip-hop?

    G. Craig Lewis - Please allow me to restate your question referring to my earlier definition: Did I mean all booty-hop came from the devil? Hmmmm … ultimately yes. However, before I answer where hip-hop came from, let me clear up where it didn’t come from. Obviously, booty-hop did not come from God. I hear a lot people [mostly holy-hip-hoppers] trying to refer to hip-hop in its purest form. Referring to hip-hop as a pure form is like trying to refer to crack as a pure form. crack in itself is a hybrid of cocaine and other chemicals used to cut it. Yet the reason holy hip-hoppers try to make this quantum leap in logic, is so they can somehow say that hip-hop is a gift from God. One very popular Grammy nominated Holy-hip-hop group suggest that on judgment day God will judge us based on what we did with Hip-hop. God has nothing to do with hip-hop. The founding fathers of hip-hop all readily admit that men created hip-hop out of rebellion. So technically, man created hip-hop, but rebellion inspired it. The Bible clearly states that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft. What spirit governs rebellion and witchcraft? The devil. So what about holy hip-hip? Surely, they distinguish themselves from the rebellious element of hip-hop don’t they? No, they can’t. Jesus said a kingdom divided against itself can’t stand. Holy hip-hoppers dress like secular hip-hoppers; behave like secular hip-hoppers [throwing up gang signs] and even listen to secular hip-hop so they can emulate them. At one of the holy hip-hop awards shows, a fight broke out east coast against west coast just like secular hip-hop.

    When most holy hip hop artists rap, they never refer to it as Holy, but just hip hop. Why is that? Because, there is only one subculture of hip hop and it is not holy! KRS-ONE, the lead prophet and spokesperson for hip hop says that Biggie was [the counterfeit] John the Baptist and Tupac Shakur was [the counterfeit] Jesus Christ and they died for our sins! He is revered and looked up to as the father of holy hip hop. He says in hip hop there are no gods and goddesses, we are the gods and goddesses! He even has T-Bone and BB Jay on his CD called Spiritually Minded, which is sold in Mardels, Family Christian, and all major Christian bookstores. He says he is a prophet and is here to teach the truth about Jesus. He says we are all Jesus Christs and should not worship him or call his name out, but be Jesus. He has Temples of hip hop all over the country and is meeting with holy hip hoppers to join together in efforts to promoting hip hop in the church! In our discussion with Ambassador of the Cross Movement, we urged him to call what he was doing Christian rap and not subscribe to hip hop culture. We asked him why couldn't he just rap for the Lord and use his ability to create rhymes for God without giving credit or props to hip hop. He said he couldn't. He is apart of the hip hop culture and would not denounce it. All rappers believe that rap is the music, but hip hop is the lifestyle or the way of life. This tells us that all hip hoppers have an agenda. Not to just rap, but to promote a rebellious way of life! Hip-hop takes what was once seen as bad and makes it good. Thugs, pimps, and gangstas was once seen as bad but hip-hop says that its good. Holy hip-hoppers are governed by this fundamental element and try to sanctify hip-hip by adding one word holy to everything. Now they say holy thugs, and gospel gangstas as if this will change the essence of hip-hop terms.

    JB of Charisma Magazine -And also, what did you mean when you later said that satan can't create anything, that he is anti-God and anti-creation? Just to clarify, it appeared that there was a contradiction in that point. Could you explain your complete thoughts on that?

    G. Craige Lewis - Satan did not create hip hop, but he used man to create it. Man has a unique ability that was not giving to satan. Man has God's attribute of creation. The devil took the music, the fatherless-ness, and the false god worship of the Zulu nation, and fused it together to form an anti-Christian movement of Hip Hop. I don't believe the devil created all the things that make up the movement, but he did mastermind the culmination of them all.

    JB of Charisma Magazine - Also, how would you respond to the argument that people may bring up from Colossians 1:16-17: For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist? I have heard this text used to defend that use of hip-hop to glorify God and to win people to Christ.

    G. Craige Lewis - There is NO biblical example of music ever being used to win souls to Christ or to evangelize. Music as a unique ability to coerce your mind and physiologically causes the release of pleasure chemicals in your brain. Because of this, it's hard for a person to make a good sound decision for Christ with the emotional trappings of music involved. Their decision will be based on feeling rather than fact. I believe that this accounts for much of the schizophrenic Christianity of the modern Church. Many churches heavily use music during their altar calls and people make a decision for Christ without being soberly minded. This leads to a conversion that is based on their emotions rather than their sound judgment. When they go back to their former environment and their emotions change they turn away from God. There is no biblical account of music being listed as a fold in the five-fold ministry or used by the apostles to draw a crowd. Jesus said no man cometh unless the Spirit of God draws him. If you notice, the only people that are really pushing hip hop in the churches are those that profit from it. Since when did the resale industry's method become our model for winning souls? When I speak, we never use music and hard core gang members, pimps, whores, drug dealers, drug users, etc. have come to Christ by the thousands without hip hop or any music!

    JB of Charisma Magazine -What do you think of holy hip-hop churches and ministries?

    G. Craige Lewis - What's next? What is the church going to do to reach the red-light district? Or the strippers? Are we going to dress up like whores and start whore ministries to reach them? Are we going to dress up like pimps to reach pimps or cross dress to reach homosexuals? [Believe me, some are probably behind the scenes trying to set up these movements even as we speak.] People need the power of the Holy Ghost to change them, not our methods. These are the purpose driven churches that are really people driven! They want big numbers and large offerings, so they turn to fleshly methods and the promotion of their own ideas rather than preaching the truth of the Word of God without compromise. If the holy hip hop churches and ministries were really affective, they would be in the streets with their kind and not in some building acting street! I want all pastors and ministries that are holding on and not giving in to this perverted move of carnality by embracing this demonic sub-culture to know something. You are not alone!

    There are hundreds of thousands of churches and ministries out there that are not giving in and just because you see the mega pastors and conferences trying to push this hip hop agenda, stick with what God is telling you. There is something wrong with boys sagging their pants and tattooing their bodies. There is something wrong with girls dressing and acting like prostitutes and hookers. There is something wrong with gospel gangsters and holy thugs wearing grillz and speaking broken English. Stay true to what you know God is saying. Teach the parents and they will effectively minister to their children. Don't sideswipe their authority by bringing in the very images and lifestyles that parents and the education system of America is trying to change.

    JB of Charisma Magazine - Thank you Elder Lewis for your responses. I see in one of your answers that you asked to one of the members of Cross Movement to call their music Christian rap. It appears from this dialog that you do not have a problem with someone rapping Christian lyrics -- just not subscribing to the hip-hop lifestyle. Is this assumption correct? Also, what style of music would you say is appropriate for Christians to listen to? Or maybe you wouldn't tell someone what to listen, but how would you teach someone to choose the kind of music that truly glorifies God?

    G. Craige Lewis - I am not against rap, or any style of music, but I do not believe that Christian music should exalt the performer at all. If it's Christian, or Christ-like, it should exalt only Christ. The holy hip hoppers promote themselves all in their music because hip hop is self expressive and self serving. That is against the plan of Christ, self denial! I believe a Christian should seek God in every way possible and deny their flesh in every way possible. This includes selfish music that causes us to move in an inappropriate manner or songs that lift up people as idols and do not lift up Christ. Self denial is the root of Salvation and must be practiced as Paul said, daily. So, with our investigative estimations of the gospel music industry being over 95 percent homosexual, self worship is being promoted in music and self promotion is key in being successful as an artists. The only example of this in the Bible is Lucifer, the angel that the bible says iniquity was found in him because of his much merchandising! It also states in Ezekial that the iniquity of his traffic [self promotion] got him cast out and labeled profane.
