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!

    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.

    -- Dr. A.B. Howard

    Cranesbill | 2nd Pure Herb for Diabetes

    Derives its name from its appearance after its flower petals drop and its resulting resemblance to the bird bill of a crane or stork. Don't under estimate the ability of the root of this wild geranium. Cranesbill does not resemble the tame geranium in appearance or smell. It is a distinctly different plant.

    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

  • We thank God for Dr. W who saved our friend from dialysis. With the diagnosis of a shrinking kidney and possible dialysis, Dr. W advised us to rub the Pure Herb Arnica on the skin over the kidney area on the lower back for any nerve damage, the Pure Herb Herbal Adjustment for circulation, the Pure Herb Vitamin E with Selenium for oxygenation and the Pure Herb Black Cohosh to remove any poison.

    Also, so soak absorbent gauze or cheese cloth with the Pure Herb Ol' Number 11 to lay on the area and cover it with plastic wrap and repeat for a day time application.

    Within a week, there was noticeable improvement. Within two weeks voiding began with copious amounts. Her remardk was, "I'm going like a race horse."

    Within three weeks the pain was gone. By the way, this lady is in her 90s and never expected a recovery like this! She is rejoicing in the new found health.

    Thank you Dr. W. May God bless you!

  • needtoforgive
    You hear a lot about forgiveness and how we need to release those who have sinned against us. But what if the person you need to forgive is yourself? What if you can’t move forward because of something you know you’ve done wrong and it haunts you? When taking people through biblical, integrated healing and deliverance it's been learned over decades that the most difficult thing for people to do is forgive themselves.

    There are always three parts to forgiveness: 1) forgiving others and others forgiving you; 2) forgiving or really releasing God [cause many of us are ticked off at the Lord and just afraid to admit it; it's okay you can admit it, you will not be sinning or loose your space in line to get into heaven]; and 3) forgiving yourself.

    Satan speaks many lies to us that simply are not true. So what does he speak? He says the following lies to us.

    a) What I did so such a big sin the Lord cannot forgive it.

    b) I knew better and still did it, so it's not forgivable.

    c) I've continued to repeat this same behavior and I'm so ashamed, I just can't ask for forgiveness again.

    d) I've downed others and have now done what I said I wouldn't do. I'm a terrible person.

    Remember, that these four things I wrote above are lies from satan. And the Bible clearly repeats that the father of lies is satan. So I encourage you today to release yourself from false guilt and accept the forgiveness that is available for you today.

    Cry in private if you need to and wail out your pain. Write yourself a letter to get it mentally out of your head. Speak the words out loud saying you forgive yourself and ask the Holy Spirit to supernaturally work the self-forgiveness down into the granules and crevices of your hurting, almost numb, heart. Ask the Holy Spirit to bring life, no abundant life, into your heart, mind and life.

  • anger
    We’ve all seen people out of control with [habitual] anger – they drive dangerously, they start fights, they are out of control at home. Some of you may remember the famous basketball coach Bobby Knight who was fired because of his top temper – in other words he was out of control, a-n-d he was out of a job. Maybe you are this person who has the anger stronghold residing in your life daily. The Bible tells us that anger rests in the bosom of fools.

    We are all unified in a sense because each of us has been good and angry before, but in Ephesians 4 we are told when angry, do not sin. So this means it is possible to be angry without sinning – this would be called righteous anger. Jesus Himself was livid with anger when he saw the hardness in the hearts of people in Mark 3. God is angry with the wicked everyday as written in the Psalms.

    What’s important for you to know, Beloved, is that anger distorts your perception – of everything including all of your relationships. What’s a fact is that anger if left unattended will, can and presently manifests itself in disease and illness in our bodies, in our families’ bodies and in our church members’ bodies. Former U.S. Surgeon General Everett Koop said anger is the number one health problem. Did you know that one-third of all women who come to emergency room or doctors’ offices for immediate care is because they’ve been battered – that’s irrational anger.

    The goal of an abuser [anger as a spiritual root] is to continually destabilize his or her victim – emotionally, spiritually and physically. The goal of satan as the source of all of the anger stronghold is to destroy and kill you [even if that means you kill and destroy other people literally or figuratively through your words, actions, lack of action or silence.] We can easily and logically conclude that any person [Christian] who has the stronghold of anger definitely has problems in all relationships [eventually].

    How can we experience the abundant life God intended for us to have when we keep getting tripped up by the stronghold of anger. Here are a few other strongholds intimately attached and intertwined with the anger stronghold that keep a person [Christian] bound:

    * the stronghold of injustice can be attached to the anger stronghold;

    * the stronghold of resentment can be intertwined with the anger stronghold;

    * the stronghold of shame can be a friend of the anger stronghold [1 example: growing up in poverty];

    * the stronghold of rejection most often is tied to the hip of the anger stronghold [1 example: one person being favored over another];

    * the stronghold of passive-aggression just sits in the lap of the anger stronghold [1 example: take your time getting ready for church when you know someone in the home wants to be on time]; and,

    * the stronghold of powerlessness seeks to make itself acquainted with the anger stronghold as early as possible in any relationship [1 example: a child who is molested by a parent, guardian, neighbor, family member or church member].

    24 SYMPTOMS OF ANGER - Take The Assessment Now

    There are 24 symptoms of anger [covered in this article]. Please understand there are thousands of symptoms of anger that are not listed here. You are very aware that on this Healed People, Heal People Web community, we’re completely focused on the Holy Spirit identifying & destroying the roots of any stronghold or recurring issue in your life [which is integrated healing & deliverance]. So, with that in mind, below are only 24 symptoms, but the spiritual root is anger.

    Anger can definitely be passed down generationally [as can any other stronghold]. This anger stronghold is especially more applicable with people who have step parents and it is also very likely to be passed down from your biological parents [even if you were adopted]. So basically, if you are breathing, this stronghold could have been passed down to you.

    If you’ll be kind, Beloved, to get a sheet of paper and a pen to answer the following questions. Please put a check mark on your paper for each statement that applies to you.

    1 – I feel relatively happy and then I’m struck with a mood change.

    2 – I raise my voice loudly to communicate something that I’m emphatic about.

    3 – I’ve expressed impatience with others and oftentimes play this out in exasperation asking, Why can’t they get a clue?

    4 – I often anticipate another person’s predictable behavior and I become angry when I see that anticipation being fulfilled.

    5 – I become angry when others people can’t read my mind.

    6 – I become angry when I’m not recognized for my contribution.

    7 – I become angry when I feel that I’m being disrespected or my words are not being taken seriously or when I feel like I’m not being heard. [This is real issue with the prophetic community, them feeling like they’re not being heard. One of the surest ways the enemy comes at prophetic people is to make them feel like they are not being heard or respected.]

    8 – I know I’m angry because of the language inside of my head.

    9 – I know I’m angry when I don’t want to hear what the other person has to say.

    10 – I get angry when others do not make me a priority.

    11 – I get angry when I do not have what I need.

    12 – I get angry when people don’t do what I say.

    13 – I get angry when I can’t control a given situation.

    14 – I get angry about suggestions that I’ve done something wrong.

    15 – I get angry when I feel added pressure on my job or with finances or pressure with personal responsibilities or even expectations others might have of me.

    16 – I easily become defensive about myself and about others.

    17 – I see the faults in others quickly.

    18 – I look for opportunities to bring up old, hurtful subjects. In other words, I keep beating that old dead horse.

    19 – I find myself speaking negatively or critically of others.

    20 – The phrase, I don’t deserve this, goes through my head frequently.

    21 – I say I’ve forgiven, but I continue to reprocess the same subjects.

    22 – I get frustrated easily about the perceived faults and mistakes of others.

    23 – I become impatient easily.

    24 – I feel like my life is harder than everybody else’s and it’s probably because I’ve been given a raw deal.

    Now Beloved reader, total you marks.

    If you have 1 – 6 checks for anger, you’re in the low percentile range of the anger stronghold.
    If you have 7 – 12 checks for anger, you’re in the average percentile range.
    If you have 13 – 18 checks for anger, you’re getting up there.
    If you have 19 – 24 checks for anger, you and the anger stronghold are extremely well acquainted.

    Did you know that most anger is masked, even in you? You don’t even have any idea how much anger is in the person sitting next to you at work, at church, at home, in your family or at the gym.

    Beloved, there are many things in this world I don’t know, but one thing I do know is anger. Why do I write this and share it with you so authoritatively? Because anger owned me for a long, long time. As a fact, as I’ve typed this article the Holy Spirit answered a question I’ve been wondering for a real time. Thank You Holy Spirit.

    Now, back to my former anger stronghold. I can recognize anger in its prettiest forms in the most gracious Christians. I can recognize anger on planet Pluto. I know mannerable anger in Christians.I know, I'm ticked offf anger and I don't care if you know. I know, I'm watching you, anger. I tell you, passive anger is so common it's like air, it's everywhere among Christians and non-Christians. I can recognize anger in the most agreeable, God-fearing people. I even know respectful anger, particularly from adult children to parents. I know indirect anger that's turned inward to harm oneself. And, I too am affiliated with the violent sides of anger – from death to threats to cat fights to murder to corruption to let me plan your demise. But, you know what, I probably know anger best in the workplace – even amongst evangelical Christians. Lord have mercy.

    Christians are very, very good at trying to justify their anger. For example, some parents show their anger in the form of being incredibly strict – so strict that some have quoted scriptures to their children in the process of being overboard in their seething inward anger.

    Beloved, would you simply ask God, Am I angry? He will answer you. If I can help you with other resources, my name on this Web community is, The Cross, A Place of Exchange.

    VICTORY OVER ANGER AT THE CROSS

    I very clearly remember the night the Holy Spirit removed the roots of this anger stronghold from me. It was such an unexpected experience. I sat on the edge of the bed and asked, Lord, why am I so angry at _________. And He answered me just audibly thereafter. I had been searching and wondering for decades and He finally ended it in less than two minutes. You know how a bath tub has a drain. The Holy Spirit put two drains on me, one on the bottom of my right foot, the other drain on the bototom of my left foot. The Holy Spirit supernaturally drained every ounce of anger physically out of my body. It was the most Holy, quick experience I've had. I simply tilted over on the bed and had the best sleep that I've experienced in decades. And in my mind as I lay on the bed, I said to myself, "It [the anger] is finished." Beloved, do you know when I walked out of the door the next morning and interacted with people, people noticed the absence of anger in me immediately. Now -- they didn't know to call it anger, but the difference was immediate. Thank you Holy Spirit. I like this side of anger much better, now. Remember Beloved, our God [who was Jesus in the flesh] is not a respector of people. He can and will remove your anger too.

    About 10 years I learned a spiritual principle that I've never forgotten.

    First let me give credit where credit is due.

    I learned this biblical principle by listening to a series by Dr. Tony Evans of The Urban Alternative in Dallas, TX.

    Dr. Evans taught, whatever it is that you need from someone, from the Lord, that is what you should give first.

    I decided to apply this to my life and it works.

    You are familiar with the universal principle of sowing and reaping, right?

    You know that sowing and reaping is a universal principle, right?

    Meaning that it, the biblical principle of sowing & reaping, is operating in your life, Christian or not, believer or not, a lot saved or not, a little saved or not.

    I'll allow you to do the homework to find the scripture where this is established in the Word of God, The Bible.

    When I was unemployed in 2002, I had to pay my mortgage.

    If my memory is correct, at that time my mortgage was $1,007.49. Yep, I remember numbers very well.

    I had about $500 of the mortgage for the upcoming month and I didn't know where the other half was coming from.

    A had a friend who was also unemployed, like many Americans during that time.

    Her car insurance was due and she didn't have the money either.

    Well, guess how much her car insurance was, $500.

    As I was backing in the garage one day, I clearly heard the Holy Spirit say, "Pay her car insurance."

    She was fretting about how she was going to have to park her car and would not have a means to go look for a job.

    She was used to her family coming to her financial rescue because not only did they work, they also owned companies.

    Her family would not deliver the money as she was accustomed to -- this didn't sit too well with her.

    Meanwhile, I'm having a major verbal spat with the Holy Spirit.

    The conversation went something like this.

    ME: Lord, you know I don't have all of my mortgage. I need that $500.

    THE LORD: You trust me, right? After all, you've been telling people that I'm going to deliver you. Don't you believe it.

    ME: Lord, I've got to figure out where the other half of my mortgage is coming from in less than two weeks. I ain't seeing how this is gonna happen.

    THE LORD: Are you going to take action and demonstrate what you've been saying to people about me. Show your faith.

    Well, this little verbal tennis match went on for a while between me and the Lord.

    I ended up finding my friend's insurance agent and paying her car insurance.

    I asked him not to tell her who made the payment, ever.

    He said to me, aren't you unemployed too?

    I said, yes, and walked away.

    To this day, she doesn't know I paid her insurance.

    She called me a few days later saying, you'll never guess how the Lord provided for me. I was mad at my family for not giving me the money. I should not have tried to determine how the Lord was going to provide.

    I listened to her rejoice, smiled and rejoiced with her. She's still working and doing well to this day.

    I simply wanted to share this with you to let you know I tried, in leariness, applying this biblical principle to my life --> Give, What It Is that You Need, First, To Someone Else.

    I know the title of this article is "You got these people in your life?" Bare with me please, and keep reading. Some ground work needs to be established first in this article, before we get to are these people in your life?

    WHAT'S GOING ON AT YOUR PERSONAL ALTAR?

    In the history of the tabernacle, the same altar was used for 270 years.

    II Kings 16: 10 - 18; Isaiah 7: 3 -9

    Do you have a personal altar in your life?

    If you're sliding or drifting from God, it starts with you drifting away from your personal altar.

    If you don't protect the altar in your life, you'll begin to replace your personal altar with carnal things.

    Is your prayer life's standard set according to the world i.e. like a hybrid, watered-downed religious activity?
    Or, is your prayer life's standard according God and of heart-wrenching transparency and honesty before the Holy Spirit?

    Once you loose the personal altar, you loose your direction.
    Once you loose conviction in your life, you begin to pick up the very things the Holy Spirit has delivered you from.
    Once you loose your personal altar, your begin to slowly lower your standards.
    Once you loose your personal altar, you choose to shut the door on the Holy Spirit convicting you.

    The altar is not a place where you simply inquire when you are in trouble.

    The altar in its ultimate purpose, is a place where you die to your flesh and you die to yourself, where you die to your own will and your own desire.

    When you little-by-little remove your altar, your prayer life [which should include praying in your heavenly prayer language] and killing the flesh is no longer a priority.

    You and I need the altar, the old fashioned altar of God, because as long as you and I breathe, the following will be continuous:

    a) your flesh continues to try to override your spirit.
    b) another part of yourself will always need to die.
    c) you and I will always need to pray constantly, specifically when we don't feel like it.

    Every Christian believer needs the following three types of people in your life.

    YOU got THESE PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE?

    Who are the Paul's in your life? These Paul-type people are above your spiritual level, they can check you and hold you accountable? The Paul-type people in your life are a very select, few people that you'll rearrange your schedule for when they call you up because they have heard from the Holy Spirit specifically for you.

    - the relationship with these Paul-type people should NOT be codependent
    - the relationship with these select Paul-type people should NOT have a trace of manipulation
    - your relationship with these few Paul-type people should NOT have any trace of fear in it

    Who are the Timothy's in your life? These are people that you pour into their life spiritually? Your spiritual maturity is more developed than theirs. This select group of people seeks you out, they respect you, your character draws them.

    - the relationship with these Timothy-type people should have boundaries established up front
    - the relationship with these Timothy-type people should NOT have a trace of control from you in their lives
    - the relationship with these few Timothy-type people are usually for a season
    release and conclude the relationship amicably when the season ends with each of these people

    Who are the Barnabas' in your life? These are your spiritual peers, you all are on the same level of maturity. These are people you sharpen and they sharpen you. You need to hang out with these like-minded people because you all are of like faith.

    When you show signs of loosing the altar in your life, REMEMBER the Paul-type, Timothy-type and Barnabas-type people are in your life from God -- so do not resent these chosen people. When these people speak, correct, challenge, irritate and admonish you about the "its" in your life, don't shun them, please beloved reader.

    - these Paul/Timothy/Barnabas people can be any age in your life
    - these Paul/Timothy/Barnabas people should NOT represent any form of temptation in your interaction
    - the character of these Paul/Timothy/Barnabas people should show evidence that they thirst and seek God regularly
    - these Paul/Timothy/Barnabas people should themselves be surrounded with people who hold them accountable

    GET YOUR PERSONAL ALTAR BACK IN YOUR LIFE.
    GET YOUR FAMILY BACK AT THE ALTAR.
    GET YOUR MARRIAGE BACK AT THE ALTAR.
    GET THE YOUNG PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE BACK AT THE ALTAR.

    Beloved reader, I derived the contents of this article by listening to a teaching by Jentezen Franklin titled "All Directions Come From The Altar." If you have any interest in having and transferring generational blessings to those in your life, I encourage you to listen to this teaching in its entirety.

    Audio Teaching | Why We Fight With Those We Love

    You're all too familiar with how we can sometimes be kinder to people we don't know -- at work, at church and in the community -- than we sometimes are to our own family, children, siblings and spouse.

    Why? Because they know more about us than anyone. And, yeah, sometimes they tend to not forget even when we've confessed and the Lord has forgiven us. The consequence -- quarrels and fights that others are usually exposed to. Darn.

    Please click the audio file above [where the blue text is] and download this pdf, Why Do We Fight With Those We Love, that includes study notes with scriptures to accompany the audio.

  • halloween

    By Redge Peifer

    People everywhere carve out pumpkin faces, hang skeletons on their walls, buy costumes … getting ready for devil’s night and, of course, halloween. Do you know where halloween originated?

    Halloween

    The een in the word Halloween refers to the een or evening before the day known as All Saints Day. But, what kind of saints were these? The saints of the Bible. No, All Saints Day was originally a festival honoring the druid priests who were into the occult and who were priests of satan.

    The Druids And Human Sacrifice

    Halloween has clear connections with their primitive and savage rituals in 2 BC [the pre-Roman, pre-Christian Celtic communities of northern and western Europe, especially in France [Gaul], Britain, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. They were the builders of Stonehenge where they would bring humans to be sacrificed in Britain.

    The druids worshipped pagan gods that included the sun god, the earth mother goddess and Sambain [lord of the dead]. Stonehedge was constructed to calculate the sun’s movements and then determine the most suitable day to worship the earth mother goddess – by the sacrifice of a human! The date selected was October 31, halloween! Think about it.

    Reincarnation

    The druids believed in reincarnation that is contrary to the teaching of the Bible. Hebrews 9:27 reads, And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment. According to their religion, the god Sambain judged the souls and decreed in what form their existence was to continue whether in the body of a human or in an animal. They believed that sinful souls of those who had died during the year had been relegated to the bodies of animals and through various gifts and sacrifices, their sins could be forgiven and the souls freed to claim a heavenly reward. It was common for horses to be sacrificed, but there were also a lot of human sacrificed.

    Men, mostly criminal, but not all – were imprisoned in wicker and thatch cages shaped like animals or giants. The druid priest set fire to these cages and the men were burned to death. They eventually included women and children in their horrible sacrifices.

    Sacrifice Of Children

    Please note from the Bible that Molech is the demon directly associated with the sacrifice of children. Molech was the Canaanite god of fire. To bring this more current, beloved reader, Molech is the demon directly associated with abortions. In the Bible, Molech was a demon god, that’s still active today, who demanded the sacrifice of living children. As Christians, we understand that children are living at the moment of conception. Thus, abortions are the killing or sacrifice of living children.

    They not only sacrificed unto false gods, but the druid rituals included eventually direct human sacrifices to the devil. They acknowledged him and worshipped him and multitudes of men, women and the little children were murdered.

    Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
    Exodus 20:3

    And he ordained him priests for the high places, and for the devils, and for the calves which he had made.
    II Chronicles 11:15

    And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom; also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger.
    II Chronicles 33:6

    The Pumpkin

    The men, women, or children to be sacrificed on halloween would simply be selected by the druids. They would leave a pumpkin on the doorstep of the house to replace the victim and to let the other members of the family know that no one else would be harmed. Now, every time you look at a pumpkin on somebody’s front porch, you’ll know what it really represents.

    If you, your family, your friends or your church members have engaged in these occult practices, you should know you have opened the door to the occult. No one said that that satan or his demons play fair. If you open the door to the occult, then the respective demons enter. Demons do not leave because you come into knowledge. The Bible is very clear on how to break strongholds. The Bible is very clear about how to take of care demonic oppression in Christians. I strongly suggest you do so ... else you, your family, your friends or your church members are living with the presence of demonic influence. I'm more than pleased to answer any questions you may have. Please post your comments.

    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.
