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.

    Natural Herbs For Energy


    GO-W | Herb no. 1 For Energy

    There are times when an individual must rely on a stimulant to fulfill their commitments and duties. The trouble with most stimulants, such as coffee and tea, is they operate on the fly now and pay later principle. In other words, they act like a whip for a tired horse. They burn your reserve nutrients to squeeze out the last ounce of energy and then the crash comes.

    This leaves you feeling empty and drained inside unless you practice heavy supplementation of vitamins and minerals. The concept here, for a good stimulant, would be to use the principle of pay as you go. And that is what GO.-W does.

    A generous provision of energy and nutrients run side by side. Liquid Bee Pollen and licorice root are instant energy for the adrenal glands [glands, one on top of each kidney, that produce numerous anti-stress compounds] that balance out the boost provided by the herb bitter orange.

    Prickly Ash sweeps away fatigue products such as acids and carbon dioxide, and capsicum provides the spark to drive oxygen to the brain and vital organs carried by the herb Eyebright. A person is refreshed and ready to go. When you have miles to go and promises to keep before you rest this night there is help in the form of GO.-W.

    This combination herb includes the following herbs | MaHuang, bitter orange, bee pollen, eyebright, licorice root, gentian, prickly ash and capsicum.

    Dose | 30 to 40 drops, as needed

    E. & F.-W [energy and fitness]  | Herb no. 2 For Energy

    With an increased awareness of physical fitness and a demand for natural energy in unlimited quantities, the energy and fitness formula was developed. A body that will do what it ought to, when you want it to, is a goal worth working for. A body that won't is a traitor. So, oxygenate your tissues and your body into the friendly camp.

    Enjoy your exercise or jogging or walk and develop a new you in the process. For the athlete or athlete-to-be who shuns steroids and other drug substances to build an honest body, this can be part of the answer. It has been said that the more you can move around, the more alive you are. This is true. You know a child is sick if he or she does not enjoy moving around.

    What do you think about an adult? That's right, the same thing is true for an adult. Be prepared to work for four months to derive the maximum benefits, as well as the immediate benefits.

    These herbs make up this combination herb |Siberian ginseng, dong quai, juniper berry, bee pollen, licorice root, peppermint leaf, capsicum, gentian, blessed thistle and eyebright

    Sow Thistle | Herb no. 3 for Energy

    Sow Thistle
    is also known as Hare Thistle or Rabbit Thistle. Our American Native peoples have been able to learn much and teach us much by their observation of wild animals. It was observed that the hare [rabbit], in desperation, while being worried by wolves or foxes, has often been observed to snatch a mouthful of this plant in mid-leap, during full flight, to get the extra burst of energy necessary to evade its tormentors. This is an emergency energy source for quick pick-me-ups with no harmful aftereffects. Non-addictive, pure energy. [Combines well with Siberian Ginseng]

    Dose | 10 to 40 drops as often as needed

    To order Sow Thistle, click here.

    Sarsaparilla | Herb no. 4 For Energy

    During the 1800's, Sarsaparilla, as a drink, was as well known as the coca-cola drink of today. The reasons it was enjoyed were many. First of all, it is an excellent source of energy to recover from exhaustion; secondly, it helps a person conquer stress; thirdly, it is a frisky hormone source for both men and women; lastly, it handles and prevents venereal disease, especially when mixed with half Golden Seal. Sarsaparilla can also be effectively employed for relief of menopause, skin eruptions, lymphatic problems and the heartbreak of psoriasis.

    Dose | 40 to 80 drops following meals or as an in-between meal pick-me-up. Apply externally daily, as needed, to skin problems and swellings. As an hormonal source for women or men, 80 drops 3 times per day.

    Rice Bran | Herb no. 5 For Energy

    Source of original B-complex discovery - outer layers of rice grain. Vitamin B-Complex source for strong, steady nerves and sustained energy. The B-Complex could comfortably be described as the don't go crazy vitamins. The B-Complex has been proven, again and again, as the vitamins to use when you feel there is nowhere to find cessation from aggravation. Rice Bran, being a very rich source of a balanced B-Complex profile of vitamins, can be vital to maintaining normal blood sugar levels for those suffering from low blood sugar.

    The B-Complex allows the nerves of the body to feed on blood sugar and function normally for an harmonious personality and a clear head for memory and clear thinking. To develop natural stamina, take Rice Bran and eat high quality protein foods on a regular basis. Persist until results, no matter how long it takes, whether you feel the results within minutes, or it takes months and much recuperation is required.

    Dose | 40 to 80 drops following meals. Stress and increased mental and physical activity burn up more of the B-Complex vitamins. If a trying time arises, double the normal amount on that day.

    To order Rice Bran, click here.

    Brewer's Yeast | Herb no. 6 for Energy

    Is a microscopic plant without chlorophyll [green colored structures in plants that eat light as their food.] Therefore, it must have much the same right kinds of foods you do to live on. By feeding yeast a good diet [things you might not eat] and letting them grow, they assemble a rich natural mineral complex and manufacture the entire vitamin B complex of vitamins. By making an extract of Brewer's Yeast cells, which involves removing their cellular contents from their external covering, we obtain their treasures on which we can run our bodies.

    The nerves can carry messages properly, the brain functions properly, our emotional environment stabilizes and life is pleasurable again. Natural energy levels soar. Hypoglycemia [low blood sugar] is stabilized by the beautiful protein profiles provided by Brewer's Yeast, as well as it's complete natural profile of B-Complex Vitamins.

    Diabetes, or high blood sugar, is likewise favorably influenced by the same properties. Brewer's Yeast also has an additional property to correct pancreatic function. When the diet has chromium restored to it the pancreas, in many cases, will again make the hormone insulin needed for the digestion of blood sugar.

    And, Brewer's Yeast just happens to be one of the best, most reliable and easily obtained sources of organic chromium. The tongue is a very sensitive indicator for what is going on in the body, much like looking at a dip-stick of an automobile. Sore tongue, red tongue, black tongue, groove down the center of the tongue, vertical lines in the lower lip, loss of upper lip, scalloped tongue [where teeth indentations are shown on the side of the tongue] and cracks at the sides of the mouth corners disappear.

    Persist no matter what, until the condition is corrected. Correcting these abnormalities of the tongue has a much greater effect on the entire nervous system and brain than just the cosmetic effect which is seen.

    Dose | 40 drops to 80 drops 3 times per day

    Bee Pollen | Herb no. 7 for Energy

    Plant sperm from male portion of flowers, collected by choosey female experts known as bees. Promotes longevity, quick energy, stabilizes and corrects low blood sugar, contains all the elements for new life such as genetic materials named RNA and DNA, rejuvenating, excellent antibiotic, and can be used for internal and external dressings of wounds.

    If painful sore throat, soak cheese cloth or absorbent gauze with Bee Pollen Extract and wrap around throat, cover with plastic wrap and a final layer of cloth on top of this to hold all in place. Change morning and night. Repeat until well.

    To restore the stamina of youth even under severe stress, 1 - 3 tbl. per day. Start with 1 tbl. per day. Persist even if it takes months. There is a nasty rumor going around, which says a man with a vacuum cleaner can collect pollen from flowers cleaner and riper than choosy female bees.

    The rumor also states that Bee Pollen is hard to digest. In an extract form, however, the contents of the pollen grains have been removed and are free of the cellulose [wooden] pollen husks. This makes the Bee Pollen extract very digestible. The proof of this is that Bee Pollen extract works and it works beautifully.

    I sincerely hope that you will squelch this nasty rumor about Bee Pollen extract and bees when you hear it. Leave it to the bees, the real specialists! Bee Pollen extract from ripe selected pollen is so good that it is used to counteract allergies even those caused by wild, unripe, air-born pollen.

    Dose |10 to 40 drops once a day for energy or as desired. 40 to 80 drops per meal as a correction and prevention for allergies. For rejuvenation, longevity, rebuilding stamina and for all other internal uses 1 tsp. to 1 tbl. 3 times per day.

  • 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.

    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.

    Apostle Of Hate — Minister Of Healing By Melanie Hemry

    Eagle Mountain International Church, Incorporated, aka Kenneth Copeland Ministries

    "Is this Johnny Lee Clary?" A voice asked on the other end of the phone.

    "Yes ..."

    "The Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan for Oklahoma?"

    "That's right."

    "Mr. Clary, I'm calling on behalf of a local radio station. We would like to invite you here to the station next Sunday evening for an interview. The program will be live. During that time, we would allow you to read your literature and share your views openly."

    Share my views on the radio? There's no telling how many new kids I can recruit! Johnny leaned back in his chair and propped up his feet.

    "I'd be most honored to be your guest," he answered, a slow smile spreading across his face. Unlike most Klan members, Johnny Lee didn't shun publicity. He hadn't even minded when television cameras followed him around to schools in the Oklahoma City area, where he recruited kids. The way he looked at it, a man ought to stand up for the truth. And one thing Johnny Lee Clary knew for certain - the Ku Klux Klan stood for the truth.

    Seeds of Hatred

    His own education in that "truth" began early. He'd been only 5 when he looked out the car window in amazement. "Look, Daddy!" he'd said. "There's a chocolate-covered man!"

    His daddy blew cigar smoke out the window in disgust. "That's not a chocolate-covered man," he said. "That's a n-----. Can you say, 'n-----'?"

    Johnny Lee had leaned out the window and shouted, "N-----!" His daddy laughed and patted him on the back.

    Johnny Lee's training continued when his Uncle Harold would visit from Georgia and tell his stories about the KKK. "I shot a black man for crossing my property," he once bragged to Johnny Lee's father. "The police didn't care that I shot him. But they did fine me for firing a gun in the city limits!" The two men laughed until their faces were red.

    Johnny Lee's dad wasn't a member of the Klan. He couldn't be. He was Catholic. One group the Klan hated almost as much as blacks and Jews was Catholics. Johnny's daddy never attended Mass, but he made sure that Johnny Lee was on the Sunday school bus every week to the First Baptist Church.

    That is, until the day Johnny Lee leaned out the bus window and screamed, "N-----!" to a black child on the street. That day, Johnny Lee's Sunday school teacher pulled him aside and taught him a song. At home, he proudly sang it for his father.

    "Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world. Red and yellow, black and white ..."

    Johnny Lee's daddy never let him go back to that church. He found one closer to home -- an all-white church.

    Everyone in their neighborhood hated Johnny Lee's family. The neighbors considered them white trash. Of course, nobody dared call them that. They were afraid to.

    The Clary family's popularity took a sudden turn, however, when a black family bought a house in the neighborhood. The whole neighborhood came to Johnny Lee's daddy and asked him to help them get rid of the family. They were willing to buy them out, if they'd leave.

    Unfortunately, the neighbors' sudden acceptance of the Clarys didn't make Johnny Lee's family any happier. His parents fought constantly. Their marriage ended tragically when, one night, 11-year-old Johnny Lee walked into a room to see his daddy holding a gun to his head. "Daddy, don't!" he screamed, then watched as his daddy shot himself to death.

    After the funeral, Johnny Lee went to live with his older sister in California. But he wasn't happy there. As the months passed, Johnny Lee became more and more lonely. That's when he saw a talk show host interviewing David Duke, the Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Remembering his Uncle Harold, Johnny Lee decided to contact the Klan. Within a few weeks, a man knocked at his door.

    "I'm a friend of David Duke," he said. The man sat down and talked to Johnny Lee. "What do you like? Tell me about your life."

    Johnny Lee was in awe. Someone wants to hear what I have to say!

    "Son, you've had a hard, horrible life," the man said. "What you need is a family. A real family. That's what the Ku Klux Klan is -- a fraternal order. That means family."

    Week after week, the man took Johnny Lee to his house for meetings. It was almost as if he had a father again. Between meetings, Johnny studied about the Klan. He was amazed to learn what prominent people were former Klansmen, including at least three U.S. presidents.

    Johnny Lee trembled with excitement the day he joined the KKK. He was 14 years old. By age 20, Johnny Lee had worked his way up in the organization, first serving as Duke's bodyguard and later, becoming the Grand Dragon of Oklahoma.

    "It was 1979 when I was invited to do the radio interview," Johnny Lee recalls. "I was so excited, I told everyone to tune in. Then, a few days before the interview, I was listening to the radio when they announced the upcoming debate between myself and the state president of the NAACP, the Rev. Wade Watts!

    "I'd never actually met a black man. But I knew what to expect: A man in African robes sporting a huge Afro, a button that said, 'I hate white people,' and a sign, 'Black is beautiful.'

    "I wasn't prepared for a nicely dressed, older black man carrying a worn Bible."

    On the day of the debate, Rev. Watts walked up to Johnny Lee -- his hand outstretched. "Hello, Mr. Clary. I just want to tell you I love you, and Jesus loves you."

    Stunned, Johnny Lee shook the man's hand without thinking. The physical touch of a Negro is pollution, he thought.

    "Don't worry, son," Rev. Watts said with a grin. "It doesn't rub off."

    He has a sense of humor ...?

    "Why do you feel the two races shouldn't mingle?" the interviewer asked Johnny Lee as the debate began. "Because Christ ordered it," he explained.

    "Son," Rev. Watts interrupted, "where did you get that idea?"

    The only Bible verses Johnny Lee knew were the ones outlined in the KKK literature. Speaking slowly, Johnny Lee quoted, "What fellowship hath light with darkness...."

    Rev. Watts explained that the scripture was referring to the believer and the nonbeliever, and to sin and righteousness. Then he asked Johnny Lee, "What color skin do you think an Ethiopian has?"

    "Black as the ace of spades," Johnny responded.

    "I'm glad you said that," Rev. Watts answered. "If you'll look in Numbers 12, you'll see that Moses married an Ethiopian woman. His sister, Miriam, didn't like it either. She talked against Moses and was struck with a horrible disease." He paused for a moment. "You can imagine what is going to happen to you."

    Johnny Lee shifted uncomfortably in his chair. This wasn't turning out the way he expected. "Look here," he said, "white people are smarter than black people."

    "How do you figure that?" Rev. Watts asked. Johnny Lee told him about an intelligence test that proved white children were smarter than black children.

    "What color were the men who came up with that test?" Rev. Watts asked.

    "It doesn't matter what color they were!" Johnny declared.

    "Well, then," said Rev. Watts, "if it doesn't matter, I'll give you a test right now, and we'll see if you can pass it."

    "If you think you're so smart, go ahead."

    "How long is the average cockroach?" Rev. Watts asked Johnny Lee. "Do roaches walk, or do they fly? How long does it take a mess of chitlins to cook? What are chitlins?"

    "Rev. Watts, you rigged that test," Johnny Lee fumed. "White folks aren't supposed to know that stuff."

    "Mr. Clary, now you're getting my point."

    Johnny Lee had to do something to get control of the interview. "Look," he said, trying to stay calm, "Thomas Jefferson helped pen our Constitution, and he said emphatically that the two races should never mix."

    "I'm impressed that you know so much about our forefathers, Mr. Clary. Does the name Sally Hemmings mean anything to you?"

    "No."

    "She was Thomas Jefferson's mistress," Rev. Watts said. "They had seven children. She was his personal property. His slave. She was as black as the ace of spades."

    "I'm not going to stay here and listen to any more of this!" Johnny fumed, storming out of the room.

    Johnny Lee was surprised later when he saw Rev. Watts holding a baby girl. Lifting up the child, Rev. Watts said to Johnny Lee, "This baby's parents were teenagers. Her mother was white and her daddy was black. The boy's family said they wouldn't have a white child in their home, and the girl's family said they wouldn't have a black child in their home. So I adopted her. Tia is my baby now. Mr. Clary, how can you hate this baby?"

    Johnny Lee turned to leave.

    "You can't do enough to make me hate you," Rev. Watts said to Johnny Lee. "I'm going to love you and pray for you, whether you like it or not."

    A short time later, Rev. Watts' church was burned. His family was plagued with vicious, hate-filled phone calls, and often found notes ..."KKK is watching you."

    "During the next 10 years, I gained more and more power in the Klan," Johnny Lee remembers. "Yet during those years, we never stopped persecuting Rev. Watts. The only thing that bothered me was a recurring dream I had of that baby girl. She was beautiful. And she was the only seed of doubt in my life. Somehow, it didn't seem right to hate her. It didn't seem right for her to die. But I knew the Klan's final solution included extermination of the race -- including babies.

    "I didn't let that seed of doubt hinder my work, though. When Rev. Watts joined ranks with an Oklahoma senator to make the Klan's racist hot lines illegal, my blood was boiling."

    Johnny Lee called Rev. Watts. "I know you're behind this," he said. "We're coming to get you, and we're going to beat you ..."

    "Hello, Johnny Lee! How's the family?"

    "I said we're coming for you!"

    "You don't have to come for me, I'll meet you. How about Pete's Place out on Highway 270?"

    "Uh ..."

    "Johnny Lee, they have the best home cooking you ever tasted. And apple pie that'll make you cry for more. Iced tea in those Mason jars. I can taste it now."

    "Did you hear what I said?" Johnny Lee demanded. "We're going to beat you!"

    "You be sure and bring all the boys..."

    "I said we're going to beat you!"

    "I heard you, and that's just fine. But first, I want to buy you boys dinner. Did I tell you about their potatoes?"

    Johnny Lee hung up. "What did he say?" the Klan members asked.

    "He talked about home cooking, apple pie and iced tea. Said he wanted to buy our dinner."

    "That old man's gone pure crazy," someone said. "Let's leave him alone."

    And they did.

    "During the months that followed, a girl I had dated challenged me to go to church," Johnny Lee recalls. "I decided to take her up on it, so I called an elder at Crossroads Cathedral in Oklahoma City. He met with me, and led me to the Lord. I asked Jesus into my life and received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. A month later, someone asked me to speak at a Full Gospel Businessmen's Fellowship. I hadn't even broken ties with the Klan.

    "Soon, word of my salvation reached the media, and a local newspaper asked for an interview. I gave it, and the next thing I knew I got a phone call from the Klan. I broke into a cold sweat when they said they were coming after me. I was scared."

    "What are you doing, Clary?" they asked when they arrived.

    Frightened for his life, Johnny Lee turned his back on God and the Church, and begged forgiveness from the Klan. He was given a second chance.

    In 1989, Johnny Lee was appointed Imperial Wizard of the KKK.

    "I wanted to unify all the hate groups - the different factions of the Klan, the Skinheads, the Patriots, the Neo-Nazis, the Militias, the Populists and the Aryan Nations - under one common organization," Johnny Lee recalled.

    He spent months arranging a national meeting of all the white supremacist groups. Finally, all the players were in place.

    What Johnny Lee didn't know, however, was that the FBI had tapped his phone and knew his plan. They arrested him on his way to the meeting.

    Without his presence, the meeting fell apart. By the time Johnny Lee was released and arrived at the rally site, the different factions were fighting among themselves.

    Johnny Lee surveyed the scene in disgust. I gave up my wife and child for these people. I gave up my life for this organization, and all they want to do is kill one another.

    On his return home, Johnny Lee faced staggering legal battles and attorney fees. He was also disillusioned.

    Where was the loyalty? he wondered. What happened to brotherhood? Wasn't the Klan supposed to be family?

    Soon afterward, Johnny Lee resigned as Imperial Wizard, and walked away from the Klan. He took a good look at himself, and didn't like what he saw.

    "I'd hit an all-time low in my life," Johnny Lee recalled. "Whenever I applied for a job, people just laughed."

    As the months passed, Johnny Lee became more and more despondent.

    Then he had a thought: Daddy escaped it all. I could go be with my dad, then I wouldn't have to worry about some Klansman putting a bullet in me.

    Johnny Lee loaded his gun and put the barrel to his head.

    The afternoon sun filtered through the closed blinds, casting tiny lines of light onto a Bible that lay gathering dust.

    The only happiness, the only peace in my life, were those few months at Crossroads Cathedral, Johnny Lee thought. But now, it's too late for me ... The dusty Bible caught Johnny Lee's eye. He put down the gun, and picked up the Bible. It fell open to Luke 15 -- the story of the prodigal son.

    Johnny Lee read the story once, then again, then a third time.

    "I know what You're trying to tell me, God," he said, weeping. "That younger son turned his back on his father and wasted his life. But when he came home, the father welcomed him. You're telling me I can come home.

    "God, I have no one else to turn to except You. I ask You to forgive me for the way I lived ... for all the hatred. Please, come into my heart, Jesus, and change me."

    In the space of a heartbeat, the weight of years of hatred melted off Johnny Lee Clary. Weeping openly, he raised his hands and worshiped God. Then he picked up the Bible and read for hours.

    "I was living in Tulsa, Oklahoma, too far to drive to Crossroads Cathedral," Johnny Lee recalls. "I visited a few churches, and although I enjoyed them very much, I knew none of them was where I was supposed to be. Each one had an all-white congregation. I knew God would never allow me to join an all-white church.

    "That week, I saw an ad in the newspaper, 'Victory Christian Center - A Church For All Races.' The next Sunday, I walked into that church and knew it was right. There were blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Filipinos, every race seemed to be represented."

    Johnny Lee joined the church.

    "This time, I didn't tell anyone who I was. Eventually, someone recognized me, and I wrote a letter to the pastor, Billy Joe Daugherty, explaining that I'd been the Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. He wrote back, encouraging me to spend time getting grounded in God's Word.

    "God helped me get a job and, for the first time since 1982, I was happy. In addition to listening to the Word at church, I was introduced to the teaching of Kenneth and Gloria Copeland. I tuned in to their Believer's Voice of Victory program, bought their tapes and learned about faith.

    "In 1991, during one of Pastor Billy Joe's sermons, the Lord called me to preach. Billy Joe's wife, Sharon, walked over to me and announced, 'God didn't save you for you to sit in Tulsa. He's commanded you to go into the world and get people saved.' "A few weeks later, Johnny Lee heard the Lord again. Call Rev. Watts.

    He did.

    "Hello, Johnny Lee," Rev. Watts said warmly.

    "Rev. Watts, I wanted you to know that I resigned from the KKK in 1989. I gave my heart to Jesus, and I'm a member of Victory Christian Center, an interracial church. My mind is being renewed, and God has called me to preach."

    "Well, praise the Lord, son!" Rev. Watts said. "Would you do me the honor of speaking at my all-black church?"

    Johnny Lee choked back the tears. "I'd love to."

    When Johnny Lee arrived to speak at Rev. Watts' church, there were cameras and news reporters everywhere. Once inside, Johnny Lee Clary stepped up to the podium and looked out over the sea of black faces. He saw people made in the image of God, souls that Jesus had died to save. The contempt he once felt had been replaced with a love so great, so powerful, that his knees felt weak.

    This, he realized, is what real unity is all about. It was not what he had tried to do through the KKK. Real unity is only possible through love.

    Johnny Lee told his story, and what Jesus had done for him. Afterward, a teenage girl ran down the aisle. "I want to know the same Jesus you know," she said.

    As the altar filled with people wanting to know Johnny Lee's Jesus, he heard Rev. Watts weeping.

    "Do you know who that is?" Watts asked, pointing at the young girl Johnny Lee had just led to the Lord.

    "No," Johnny Lee answered.

    "That's Tia," Rev. Watts said. "She's the baby I shoved in your face that day at the radio station!"

    Johnny Lee turned to look at the beautiful face beaming at him. She was the baby he couldn't hate.

    Rev. Watts and his wife had 13 children. Nine of them had given their lives to Jesus. In the throng of people who crowded the altar that night, Johnny Lee was privileged to introduce the other four to the Lord Jesus.

    After the service, Rev. Watts and Johnny Lee embraced. An elderly black pastor wrapped his arms around a young, white, former Klansman. They both wept.

    "All those years I prayed for you!" Watts said. "I never dreamed that God would use you to bring my own children into the kingdom!"

    It's been more than six years now since Johnny Lee preached at Rev. Watts' church, and many things have changed. But both men still work untiringly - to spread the gospel and promote racial reconciliation.

    Today, Johnny Lee Clary's greatest thrill in ministry occurs when he ministers alongside Rev. Wade Watts. His second greatest thrill is being a godfather to young Tia Watts.

    Johnny Lee Clary stands amazed that one man - the man he persecuted - prayed him out of hell on earth and into heaven for eternity. Before, that kind of love was unfathomable to Johnny Lee. Now, it is a way of life.

    Pastor Johnny Lee Clary's Testimony

    Johnny Lee Clary learned to hate at a very young age. He was raised in a family filled with racism, anger, and bigotry. As a young teenager, after his father committed suicide and his mother abandoned him, Johnny found himself alone and looking for someplace to belong. At 14, he was seduced by the teachings of the notorious David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan, and he joined the organization.

    As an impressionable young man, Johnny became so enthralled with the sense of belonging and a need for “family” that he participated in KKK events as a security enforcer. His exuberance and dedication led to him being appointed as David Duke’s personal bodyguard.

    Johnny continued to advance in the organization, reveling in the feeling of finally fitting in. He went on to spend nearly 17 years in the Klan, as State Organizer and Public Relations spokesman for Imperial Wizard Bill Wilkinson of the Invisible Empire Knights of the Ku Klux Klan; then becoming Grand Dragon of the National Knights of the KKK; then Heartland Director and right-hand man to White Aryan Resistance leader Tom Metzger (by all accounts, one of the most violent men ever to preach hatred); and finally, to becoming one of the most nefarious national Klan leaders in America after being elected to the very top: Imperial Wizard (national head) of the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, a branch that originated in Mississippi and was considered to be the most dreaded Klan faction in history (and widely acknowledged by law enforcement as the most violent and militant of all the Klan), taking responsibility for bombings, murders, and countless other crimes—all in the name of hatred and racism. To this day, the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan are considered the real Ku Klux Klan.

    As the Klan’s national leader, during many appearances on such television programs as The Oprah Winfrey Show, the Morton Downey, Jr. Show, and many others, Johnny advocated, supported, and defended racism and violence.

    But then, the destructive mindset and lifestyle he had lived for so many years began to take its toll. Riddled with torment, angered over a false arrest in Tennessee on a weapons charge, disgusted with internal bickering between the various white supremacist organizations, and the discovery that his girlfriend was an informant for the FBI, Johnny Lee left the Klan.

    But life does not always repair so easily. Over the next few years he found himself derailed by issues related to his alledged daughter, two divorces, losing all of his friends, the FBI doubting his exit from the Klan, and struggling just to make an honest living. These challenges, combined with his feelings of guilt over the life of violence, prejudice, and hatred he had lived for so long, led Johnny to alcohol.

    On the verge of committing suicide one night, he cried out to God to deliver him from his nightmarish existence. And God answered. From that point on, Johnny Lee used his life, his experiences, and his near destruction to help others leave the same evil path that he had walked for so long.

    In 1995 Johnny was appointed by Roy Ennis to serve as West Coast Director National Director for the Congress Of Racial Equality. Since then, he has spoken at innumerable Universities, High Schools and churches, and has been a featured speaker for Youth Alive and Teen Challenge. He lectures for the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, educating officers on the mindset of white supremacists and how to best fight against domestic terrorism.

    As a renowned international speaker, he has set records for the largest crowds of any motivational lecturer in Australia other than Billy Graham, with literally thousands receiving his message of hope, healing and forgiveness for racism, low self-esteem, suicidal tendencies, and substance abuse.

    Johnny Lee Clary resides with his wife Melissa in Miami, Oklahoma. He has appeared on the Billy Graham Radio Show, on the television programs including:

    Geraldo Rivera
    Fox News
    Alan Colmes
    Sally Jesse Raphael
    Jerry Springer
    Rikki Lake
    Queen Latifah
    Montel Williams

    ABC World News Tonight
    Bertrice Berry
    The Today Show
    A Current Affair
    The 700 Club
    CNBC The Big Idea w/ Donny Deutsch

    He has also been a regular guest on TBN’s Praise The Lord show and has been featured in America’s top newspapers and magazines, including a seven page feature story in Charisma magazine in April 1999, Moody Magazine, GuidePost Magazine [September 1998], Kenneth Copeland's Believer's Voice of Victory magazine, as well as appearances on TV programs in Australia, England, Holland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Sweden, and Wales.

    I ask you to secure yourself with a Holy Spirit seat belt as you, the reader, and I have dialogue throughout this blog. Why am I even writing this today, July 2, 2009? My heart is heavy; I’m so very saddened by the choices of a few specific people I deeply care for.

    But we all have free choice, right, even as Christians. And along with our free choices, comes the free consequences whether good or bad for each and every choice each of us makes.

    I’m sure you identify with my feelings, right? You want the absolute best, which is God’s best, for those you love and they choose repeated choices that lead to bondage, which they call, “but I’m happy.”

    I’m left with the following questions and thoughts that have been pounding in my brain like a sledge hammer since 7 am during my daily morning 5.14 mile walk.

    Question 1
    Lord, I say I love you because that’s the politically-correct Christian thing to say, but I’m really consumed with myself and what makes me happy? You come somewhere down the line Lord; I gotta take care of me – no one else will.

    Question 2
    Lord, why isn’t the following question a part of my daily, mental grid as a Christian. What decision for my life would please You today Lord that aligns with Your biblical principles?

    Question 3
    Am I really that selfish Lord that my choices, my actions don’t even take into consideration what’s best for me [according to Your will] or my child/children. Wow Lord – I must really be hurting deeply and even living detached from my family to forsake what’s best for them and I’ve been entrusted to be a steward over them.

    Thought 1
    I really don’t know how to deal with the quiet, subliminal pain inside, so I gotta do something daily or weekly to distract me from me. I call it – making myself happy. Satan rejoices because he calls it – gotcha.

    Thought 2
    Why do I keep repeating actions and choices that I know aren’t good for me Lord? Aahh, I did it again. Although I’ve not wanted to call it what it is, I have some percentage of self hatred operating in my life. What else could explain the choices I make and the choices others that I love make that do not lead to the abundant life You promised for me or them?

    Lord, Why Don't I Care How You Feel … What Make You Happy

    Now, Beloved reader, where did all of this start? Allow me to share a few things that have saddened my heart.

    One
    A divorced, single parent gets pregnant two more times by the new person they are seeing.
    The person is Christian, smart, attractive and educated.
    The divorced parent chooses to allow the new person they are dating to move into their home.
    The divorced parent has a child in elementary school.
    They plan to marry someday.

    Two
    A single person who was molested as a child has a senior leadership position in a church.
    This person has received Holy Spirit healing for this strategy that was planned very early by the demonic for their life.
    This single person lives with another single person in their local church who is also in a leadership position.
    The head leader of the church remains quiet.

    Three
    Ty Adams has written a new book that I’ve not read.
    From what I understand it addresses the rampant sexual immorality in the body of Christ.
    Any person, in this case, Ty Adams, who chooses to state the Lord’s unwavering, uncompromised standards in 2009 loves the Lord and chooses The Truth.

    Four
    The fact that people are forgetting that Michael Jackson was a human, a son, a father, a friend, a brother, a uncle and a child of the Lord – saddens me. Many throughout the world are mourning and grieving including me. There’s been an utter disrespect to his family that he is loved globally and this time of bereavement is to be respected for any human being. In America, we have a court system and the court found him not guilty. In our democracy, this is where it ends. The establishment of government is biblical, even though there are many shortcomings.

    Five
    Daily I listen to the media, interact with Christians, listen to Internet radio, read letters from a federal prisoner who writes me, look at Oprah’s talk show sporadically and look at award shows on tv – it’s devastatingly apparent, don’t nobody hardly give a flipping care about – what the Lord thinks, what makes the Lord happy, what pleases the Lord.

    Beloved reader, it breaks my heart – need I say more. The witness of every Christian is a combination of our conversation, character and conduct. And to be direct with you here, actions still speak louder than words. Folks, including many Christians, simply don’t give a rat’s patuddy about what the Lord thinks.

    Lord, Why Don't I Care How You Feel … What Makes You Happy

    Well, let me offer a few answers to the questions and thoughts I’ve posed above. What is the basis on the responses I’m getting ready to share with you?

    The principles, covenants, commandments, contingencies, prophecies and the universal law of reaping and sowing in the Bible;
    My experience in healing and deliverance; and, my colleagues experience globally in in healing and deliverance.

    Those we love in our life hurt deeply.
    They hurt so much more than they’ll ever share with you.

    Let’s quickly look at one common coping mechanism of Christians. I’ll keep myself surrounded with middle-of-the-road Christians that way I don’t feel so bad about my public and private choices.

    A wise Christian once imparted to me, your left hand should be outstretched upwards for those who are where you want to be are pulling you upwards. Your right hand is outstretched downwards, and you are pulling those who desire to be where you are at. There’s a small inner circle of people who should surround you.

    Your inner circle are those appointed by the Holy Spirit who actively participate in having their own lives healed and who strategically sow the following in your life -- support, counsel, advocate, a regular lover of the Word of God and they hold you accountable in a loving Christ-like manner.

    Many Christians are so weak, they continue to relish in the world’s standards. Why are many Christians weak? Would you consider taking a survey from seven people you know well by the end of this week? Ask how much time they spent daily in the past seven days with the Lord including study, meditation and fasting [fasting is a regular part of the Christian lifestyle].

    Quite simply, strength comes from the Holy Spirit and His Word. Making Godly choices comes from having God’s perspective mapped in your heart and mind. There are only four ways I know to achieve this that humans can employ – read, listen, write and recite.

    I heard someone pray earlier this year for God to release a person from the consequences of having committed adultery. My spirit quickened and the scripture God is not a respector of people popped in my mind like red neon lights. The ways, character and attributes of the Holy Spirit are like a two-sided coin, a penny for example. On one side there’s love, grace and mercy and on the other side of this same coin is justice, judgment and wrath. It still baffles me why Christians do not equally teach about this other side of God.

    The main issue with interacting with God as only having one side is we are then engaging in a game of Russian roulette. Because the Holy Spirit is gracious, doesn’t mean He’s foolish. And the Lord specifically determines for each of us the day and what will be the last time He’ll extend his grace and mercy in a first time or repeated choice we continue to make.

    The operating of generational curses are so real and active in Christians lives that many Christians simply don’t identify the daily and weekly manifestations of these generational curses as what they truly are. For example, someone shares they’ve had repeated extra-marital affairs in a casual conversation.

    This same person on another day mentions their child had a sleepover and overheard the very young children saying, “I’m going to _uck you to death.” The same person says casually on another week that their mother has had a life of promiscuity. This same person shares in yet another week casually that their cousins engage in bisexual relationships. This same person says, “You know what, I just remember that my grandmother was molested too like I was.”

    Beloved reader, I counted four generations of sexual immorality as I listened in the spirit to these casual conversations that took place over a number of weeks. These are not merely choices of each person. There is a BONA FIDE generational curse of sexual immorality rampant in this family line that can easily be broken in less than 30 minutes. I pray that if you see repetition in your life or your family’s life – learn, study, examine and break each generational curse and command the respective demons assigned to EACH CURSE operating in your life to leave.

    Lord, Why Don't I Care How You Feel … What Makes you Happy

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I continue looking at the person just a little bit longer than I should?

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I take my personal issues out on those who report to me?

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I secretly deny sexism and racism in my heart although my consistent actions and thoughts reveal this truth?

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I envy those in my church who You've blessed more than me; I'm wrongly comparing Lord?

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I allow the person I'm not married to to spend the night and I use anything to justify my actions?

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I wrongly classify personal expenses as business expenses?

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I pretend to celebrate others, but my heart is reeked with jealousy?

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I continue to proclaim I'm a Christian and not speak up when I should?
    Will You deny me and not speak up for me Lord like I do You?

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I enable my family members and call it love? Love does not enable.

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I create co-dependency for my own adult children and call it love? Love does not operate in the same space as co-dependency.

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I continue to live a life without godly boundaries? So, I'm not a good steward of my life and my time so I don't achieve what You've directed and ordained.

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I continue to take anxiety and nerve medications that abuse my body instead of being responsible to deal with my life issues now?

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I shine the light of my spouse's imperfections when my spouse is a direct reflection of me?

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I continue to masturbate?

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I continue to steal from my job, my family and steal from You in ways that I try to justify?

    Why don't I care Lord about how You feel when I rarely keep my word with any person? You have always honored words Lord and I am to be an ever-becoming spotless representation of You.

    LORD, WHY DON’T I CARE HOW YOU FEEL … WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY

    Holy Spirit, I give you permission to do heart surgery on my heart?

    Why Lord, do I choose to give you this permission?

    Because what saddens You, I want to sadden me since I'm choosing to work on being more like You as one of Your devoted followers.

    Why Lord, do I choose to give you this permission to do heart surgery on my heart?

    Because what please You Lord, I want to please me.

    Change my heart, soften it where it needs softening.

    Remove from it the ills and worldly vices that I've become to familiar with.

    Create in me a clean heart, O Lord, I choose You and make my heart most sensitive to Your ways, Your principles in my life.

    In the name of Jesus, I pray, I expect and I thank you.

    I had an unconventional business meeting late yesterday afternoon. There person and I had been trying to connect for some weeks, but you know how the schedule thing goes. So I asked the person would they be willing to try one of my unconventional meetings, and the person said yes. We did a walking meeting.

    Two things were achieved. We exercised and completed our business. At the close of the walking meeting, the person asked, “How long did we walk?” I looked at my pedometer on the right side of my waist and replied, “7.25 miles.” There was silence by the other person.

    One non-business thing I shared was it’s extremely difficult to identity Christians from non-Christians on any day of any week of any hour. We Christians have chosen so many times to blend in, we are now hardly, if at all, identifiable. Thus, there goes our salt, our savor, our ability to draw the unsaved. So, what are we going to do? Will we continue to choose to operate daily with no power?

    II Timothy 1:7 paraphrased reads, For God gives you a spirit of power.

    Are you a Christian who chooses to remain politically correct in your neighborhood – a primary place to be a light?

    Are you a Christian who chooses to remain quiet at work repeatedly when others choose to be vocal repeatedly in sharing non-Christian values?

    Are you a Christian who chooses to be too busy daily to learn 1 thing by studying in the Bible?

    Are you a Christian who chooses to remain passive by not signing petitions that will uphold Christian values in our communities?

    Are you a Christian who continues to choose to mismanage His time He allows you each day, which directly affects His kingdom business being achieved in your family, your church, your relationships, and your spheres of influence?

    As Christians [who do not have children] and as Christians parents, it is our responsibility to provide safe boundaries and safe environments for our children and the children in your local church body.

    John 10:10 paraphrased reads, The thief comes to steal, and to kill, and to destroy your children.

    How does satan plan to steal, kill and destroy your children?

    One way he strategizes on YOUR children in your home and the children in your church is he looks for open gates.

    Two open gate he, satan, commonly uses are the eye gates and the ear gates of your children and the children in your church.

    Taking YOUR children to see the new Harry Potter movie is a very sly, entertaining, deceptive way you can introduce your children in your home, in your community and in your church to the occult, which is directly controlled by the demonic. And the demonic is directly controlled by satan.

    Many of you know that I’m certified in integrated, biblical healing and deliverance. It is my heart’s desire and my colleagues desire around the world who labor in integrated, biblical healing and deliverance to see less parents before us who weep and wail over their children.

    One way we can see fewer parents pained over our children, is for parents to make better, educated, Christian choices early and repeatedly in the lives of your children and the children in your church.

    John 10:10 paraphrased reads, I come that you might have life more abundantly.

    Beloved reader, may I share two ways I employ as a Christian to live the more abundant life I’m entitled too.

    One, I choose to live life on the offense daily.

    And two, I choose to not willingly open gates in my life to invite the demonic, which are directly controlled by satan.

    As a Christian, you are aware of the biblical fact that demons are active 24-hours a day just as the Holy Spirit is.

    You are aware that Christ can be everywhere at the same time.
    You are aware that satan cannot be everywhere at the same time.
    You are aware that since satan imitates Christ, his substitute for being everywhere at the same time is his minute-by-minute use of demons.
    He dispatches his demons and specifically assigns them to you, your children, your family, your community, your church, your company, your institutions and your city.

    Would you consider, please beloved reader, not willingly opening the door to the occult in YOUR children’s lives in your home and in your church by taking them to see the new Harry Potter movie?

    Consider, please, setting a precedence and planting a seed in the mind of your child(ren) and the children in your church of how to make godly decisions. After all, as a Christian parent you are responsible for training them up in the Lord. If you’d like them to make godly decisions later, they are watching you and learning how you make godly decisions for them as a child(ren).

    Please read the two movie reviews below, beloved reader. Every time there is a reference to the occult, I’ve inserted the word [occult] in the appropriate place.

    Thank you for reading this article. If you are not a member of Healed People, Heal People, I invite you to join and invite others to be a part of this online Christian community. There are weekly updates of encouragement.

    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – movie review no. 1
    What Parents Need to Know
    www.CommonSenseMedia.org

    Parents need to know that this is no PG movie -- in all ways, it's very similar to the previous two movies, which were rated PG-13. This film continues the series' trend toward darker [occult] , more intense material. For young children, the death of a major beloved character could be extremely upsetting. Other characters are bloodied, kicked, and cursed in frightening [occult] ways, and a very scary scene involving scary, skeletal [occult] characters is sure to scare the pants off of little kids.

    There are also some big emotional upheavals and scary [occult] attacks. And there's notably more [premarital] sexuality -- albeit playfully [plants seeds of sexual immorality in your children’s minds to premarital sex and seeds do grow] depicted -- than in the past movies. Because the characters are now teens, much of the interaction between them and their friends centers on getting a boy or girlfriend, and there's plenty of [premarital] snogging [making out]. While Harry and his friends continue as strong positive role models, other characters' motives and plans become more ambiguous.

    And there are also a few scenes that include alcohol consumption [plants seeds in your child’s mind, please consider if there are generationally any alcohol drinkers on either side of your family] -- including one in which a professor serves his students [person in both and authoritative and leadership position leading children, students to engage in alcohol, it is no coincidence that liquor stores advertise signage that read SPIRITS, and this is not the spirit of the Lords, notice the word spirits is plural with an S] .

    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – movie review no. 2

    By Christa Banister, Crosswalk.com Contributing Writer

    Cautions

    Drugs/alcohol: Harry, Hermoine and Ron drink butter beer.

    Language/profanity: A few uses of mild profanity including “hell,” “damn” and “piss off.”

    Sex/nudity: Romance is definitely on the brain in Hogwarts this time around. There are a few kisses between different teen couples, but nothing more.

    Violence: “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” has an even darker [occult] tone than any of the other “Potter” movies to date. And the first scene definitely sets the pace when the Millennium Bridge is destroyed and several civilians are thrown off. A couple of fights break out between Harry and Draco, and their faces are bloodied.

    There are violent exchanges between the Weasleys and the Death Eaters, and more precarious spells [occult] are concocted than ever before, especially when one of Harry’s classmates is possessed [occult] and nearly dies. The last 20 minutes are the most violent and action-packed of them all when Dumbledore and Harry make their way to the cave. What eventually goes down is different than what actually happens in the books, so I won’t spoil it here.

    Be forewarned, however, this isn’t stuff for younger children, despite the PG rating.

    Please consider printing this article and doing one or several of the following.

    1) Give a copy of this to people in leadership at your church.

    2) Give a copy of this to parents you know.

    3) Use this as a Vacation Bible School topic.

    4) Use this as a topic in your youth group.

    5) Place copies on the windshields of your church members.

    6) Consider using this as an insert in your church bulletin.

    7) Place a copy of this article on several of your church bulletin boards.

    8) Tape a copy of this article on the inside door of bathroom stalls in your church.

    9) Tape a copy of this article near the exit doors of your church.

  • womancrying

    Wow, this is a subject that tugs close to my heart strings, how about yours? Do you know how many people have blocked emotions? I do. Guess I kinda used to be one of them. I remember saying, I just really don't like crying -- especially not in front of people.

    Well, why not? The Lord created emotions, actually in the book of Genesis. There must be a reason He created tear ducts, and even biologically and physiologically there's a reason for them.
    I've typically preferred crying alone, you know, it's private, no one sees you and if it messes up your make up, you can straighten it up. Right now, my mind rolls back to two crying episodes I had where I just couldn't control the tears.

    First crying episode

    I was on a business trip in South Carolina and I was tired after landing at the airport.
    I was exhausted emotionally and mentally.
    I decided, I'm not going to work today, instead I'll eat lunch and rest, after all, I don't know anyone in this city.
    I ate lunch and when I finished, a stranger in the restaurant walked up to me and said, "Baby, the weight on you is so heavy, I felt it across the restaurant and I've been sitting over there praying for you."
    I remained quiet, I didn't know her.
    She asked while standing at my table, “May I pray for you?”
    I said yes and she began to pray while touching my hand [the waitresses are now looking because they know we didn't come in together].
    Bear-sized tears began racing from my face because this woman called out everything that was wrong with me and I didn't know her.
    Yes, people in the restaurant are really looking now.
    After praying the lady said, do you have car, did you come here in a car.
    I said yes, my rental is outside.
    She said, go in the car, roll up the windows and cry as hard as you need to.
    I did just that.
    I exited the restaurant, drove across the street to a bookstore parking lot, went way in the back of the parking lot -- and baam, I wailed like an animal in the forest who was wounded and no one was there to rescue them.
    I'll never forget that cry.

    Second crying episode

    I'm now in another state years later and I spontaneously decided to have a meal with a lady I'd met like about two days prior.
    I'd been doing some reflecting on my life and thought I was fine.
    The Lord was dealing with me on an issue I really didn't want to talk to people about.
    After all, nothing is ever going to change, so why bother even addressing it.
    Sometimes you just have to accept things the way they are right?
    No, wrong!
    Why is that wrong, because what I believed DID NOT align with The Bible, the Word of God.
    If what I believe doesn't align, then what I believe is not true.
    The Word of God is true, it is the truth, which meant what I believed was a lie.
    Yes, it had been a reality for a long time, but it was a lie I believed because the situation had been that way for so long.
    Well, let me tell you.
    I sat at that meal table with just about a perfect stranger.
    We were eating.
    And I tried to be civil and talk, do the small talk exchange.
    Lord, that didn't last for two minutes.
    The tear ducts RIPPED and there was no way I could conceal the tears.
    This wasn't a simple cry, the veins in my soul had ruptured and here I am with a complete stranger.
    It's a beautiful thing when you can communicate with a person -- human spirit to human spirit -- without using any words.
    Really in this particular situation it was the spirit of the Lord in me connecting with the Spirit of the Lord in her.
    That lady rubbed my right shoulder and the top of my back.
    She didn't say a word.
    Underneath my breathe I eked out the words repeatedly, "They are not better than me."
    I just kept repeating that because that had been my inner struggle that started centuries before I was born.
    I just bought into the lie because it had been passed down generation to generation to me -- and in ignorance I accepted it.

    Well, Beloved reader, I simply share with you today, you have the freedom and are released to cry.
    Cry in public.
    Cry in private.
    Cry with friends.
    Cry with enemies.
    Cry with your spouse.
    Cry with the Lord holding you.
    Cry in your car.
    Cry in the bathroom stall at work.
    Cry in your woman's lap.
    Cry on your man's shoulder.

    It's okay; you are now released and have the freedom to cry.

    What is a demon?

    Demons have distinct and unique personalities just like human beings. Remember that neither satan nor his demon spirits are things. Neither should they be taken lightly. Demons are beings who have all the normally accepted marks of personality: they possess will, intelligence, emotion, self-awareness, and the ability to speak.

    Satan is the leader of all demons. Because satan is prideful, his demons follow his lead, which means all demons have a degree of pride like their leader. Demons even compete against one another while operating in your life. The name of the demon reveals its characteristics or manifestations. See the following examples.

    Lucifer - Isaiah 14:12

    Prince of the power of the air - Ephesians 2:2

    Ruler of the demons - Matthew 12:24

    Destroyer - I Corinthians 10:10

    Angel of light - II Corinthians 11:14

    Serpent of old - Revelation 20:2

    Great dragon - Revelation 12:9

    Devil - Revelation 12:9

    Wicked one - Matthew 13:19

    Father of lies - John 8:44

    Murderer - John 8:44

    The following are examples of the characteristics of demons in the Bible.

    Here the demon exercises his will, a 1st characteristic
    In Matthew 12:44, the demon who has gone out of a man says, "I will return to my house from which I came." The demon here exercises its will to make a decision, and then follows it up with the corresponding action.

    Here the demon shows emotion, a 2nd characteristic
    In James 2:19 it reads “You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe - and tremble!" Trembling is an outward mark of strong emotion. Derek Prince writes that at times he has seen a demonized person, who when confronted with the authority of Christ, began to tremble violently. This may be an outward manifestation of fear of the demon inside.

    Here the demon shows intellect, a 3rd characteristic
    Demons have knowledge not derived from natural sources, rather evil sources. The first time Jesus confronted a demonized man in the synagogue in Capernaum, the demon spoke out of the man and said in Mark 1:24, "I know who You are - the Holy One of God!" It was more than a year before Jesus' own disciples began to realize what this demon had discerned immediately.

    Here the demon shows self awareness, a 4th characteristic
    When Jesus asked the demonized man in the country of the Gadarenes in Mark 5:9, "What is your name?" a demon answered on behalf of itself and the other demons, "My name is Legion; for we are many." The demon was aware of both its own identity and that of the other demons occupying this man.

    Here the demon shows their ability to speak vocally, a 5th characteristic
    In the first three gospels and also in Acts, we see several examples of demons able to speak through the vocal organs of the people they are occupying. The demons could and still do answer questions and carry on a conversation. Normally we regard the ability to speak as a distinctive mark of personality.

    Demons display a wide range of character traits. Some are vicious, violent, supernaturally strong. Others are weak, cowering, even ridiculous - characteristics one would not expect to find in a demon, which is a fallen angel.

    Where did demons come from?

    If mankind, Adam and Eve, had never sinned, we would never have been vulnerable to demons. From the beginning, ever since man, Adam and Eve, turned from God in rebellion, all males and females born have been subjected to two main spiritual evils: sin and demons.

    Where do demons live?

    Each demon desires to express himself through a human body, preferably yours. A demon is not happy unless he has a human body, again, preferably yours. Because demons do not possess physical bodies of their own, demons seek to inhabit or use the bodies of humans or animals.

    How do demons work?

    God can be everywhere at the same time. Satan cannot be everywhere at the same time. Since satan was booted out of heaven, there has been a fight for dominion. Satan tries to accomplish his goal of dominion of your life through demons since he cannot be everywhere at the same time.

    He, satan, dispenses or assigns his demons or demonic spirits to babies in the womb, people, you, your family, your church, cities, denominations, governments, countries, hospitals, institutions, leaders, through music, through television, through drugs, through immoral sex, through perverted sex, through alcohol, etc. In very simple terms, God represents the light or the good and satan represent the dark or the bad. Just as God and His Holy Spirit is active daily, so is satan and his demons or demonic forces and principalities.

    What can I do about demons?


    There is an urgent need for Christians to learn all we can about the nature and activity of demons. This knowledge is important for all believers, since none of us can claim immunity from the attacks of demons.

    It is especially important for pastors and other Christians certified in integrated healing & deliverance to be trained and available for each Christian who desires help. Only with trained, revelatory knowledge are those called to healing and deliverance able to make a correct diagnosis and apply the appropriate remedy so Christians can experience freedom ministered by the Holy Spirit.

    Are demons associated with illnesses or health challenges?


    Many sicknesses are actually caused by demons, and they should be treated as such. Let's look at a scriptural example where this actually happened.

    In Luke 4: 38 – 39, it reads "And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon's house. And Simon's wife's mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her. And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them."

    If this fever was only a physical problem, then how foolish to rebuke it! It makes no sense whatsoever to rebuke an inanimate thing. One can only rebuke something having intelligence, and Jesus knew that a spirit caused this fever. The fever left Peter's mother-in-law because it had to obey Jesus' authoritative command.

    How many demons are there?


    The Bible specifically names many, many demons and there are also categories of demons based on their function. For example, if a person [illegitimately] controls things and people, the specific demon in the Bible that's operating in this person is the Jezebel demon [you understand that Jezebel is really a super stronghold because four demons make up the Jezebel head.]

    When you are engaged in spiritual warfare, it is important to know your enemy. Part of spiritual warfare is getting rid of your demons on a lasting, permanent basis. Demons manifest themselves through you, your family and your church members under many different names. The following evil spirits, demons, or devils are mentioned in the scriptures, but this list is not exhaustive. Each one is a personality, and the word used expresses their nature:

    The nature of specific demons shown in the Old Testament that remain active today.

    Jealousy/feelings of jealousy - Numbers 5:14, 30

    Ill will/evil - Judges 9:23

    Distressing/evil - I Samuel 16:14-23; 18:10; 19:9

    Lying/deceiving - I Kings 22:22; II Chronicles 18:20-22

    Perverse/distortion/dizziness - Isaiah 19:14

    Deep sleep - Isaiah 29:10

    Heaviness/fainting/despair - Isaiah 61:3

    Harlotry/prostitution - Hosea 4:12; 5:4

    Unclean/unclean/impurity - Zechariah 13:2

    Familiar - Deuteronomy 18:11

    Infirmity/causing sickness/ crippling - Luke 13:11

    Divination/predicting the future - Acts 16:16

    Deceiving/deceitful - I Timothy 4:1

    Fear/timidity - II Timothy 1:7

    Error/falsehood - I John 4:6

    Unclean - Matthew 10:1

    Divination - Acts 16:16

    Bondage - I John 4:6

    Deceiving - I Timothy 4:1

    Error - I John 4:6

    Death - Hebrews 2:14-15

    Are there new demons?


    No, there are not new demons. The demons established in the Bible are it, but that's a whole lot of them! Demons can take on many, many, many manifestations in each person's life.

    How do you identify demons?


    The easiest way to identify a demon is by how it manifest in your life. There are many lists of demons, strongholds and generational curses. Again, the easiest way to identify each demon in your life is by how it manifests in your life. For example, one lady was severely overweight and she struggled with her weight for years. When she came for healing and deliverance, the demon was simply identified as the sugar demon. See how simple that is.

    Why are so many Christians scared of demons?


    Christians are scared of demons because:

    a) you may not understand your authority based on scripture - An excerpt of Luke 10:18-19 reads, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

    Christians are scared of demons because:

    b) you may have a fear of using your authority once you know your authority; fear is a stronghold that is controlled by the demonic.

    Christians are scared of demons because:

    c) you may believe the authority the scripture states is for all other believers except you; this unbelief is a stronghold that is controlled by the demonic.

    Christians are scared of demons because:

    d) you may be deceived into thinking the demons active in your life will not obey your command when you use your authority; this is a lie. Satan is the father of lies. Demons are under the leadership of satan. So, this lie you believe is from what, the demonic.

    Christians are scared of demons because:

    e) you may not understand your position based on scripture - An excerpt of Romans 8: 16-18 reads that you are the child of God and a joint-heir with Christ.

    Christians are scared of demons because:

    f) you may choose not to exercise your authority daily; angelic and demonic activity take place 24-hours a day. As a Christian, you are automatically enrolled in a battle known as spiritual warfare. There are only two positions in this Christian battle, offense and defense. Most Christians choose, by default, to live their lives operating on the defense and in response mode. Most Christians choose to be passive in the battle. Why are you passive? Because your church does not regularly teach and train the church body and regularly teach and train those called to healing & deliverance how to engage in spiritual warfare daily.

    Christians are scared of demons because:

    g) you may have been deceived into thinking that demons have more power than you do -- as a child of the King who inherited all spiritual blessings. Smile -- I'll let you find this scripture reference : )

    Christians are scared of demons because:

    h) you may choose not to read and study your Bible regularly to be reminded of and operate daily in your God-given authority. Meanwhile, you, your family, your church and your country suffer needlessly. It really ain't that deep yall -- sorry about the incorrect language here.

    Why do so many churches not teach on the demonic?


    God is not interested in our church membership or denominational labels – we all use the same Holy Bible where all of these scriptures in this article can be found. No believer wants to be exposed and many of our sins, including our private, secret sins, create shame. Confidential, healing and deliverance ministry does not expose you, the person, rather it exposes the demonic strategy that’s been operating in your life and keeping you in your private bondage.

    You think what you’re going through is not transparent to other believers, but it is. The Holy Spirit is still waiting on you to surrender -- at any minute of any hour of any day. You know what the beauty of confidential, integrated healing and deliverance is? It will be the last time you deal with the pain, the shame, the secrets, the coping mechanisms. You may remember, but the pain historically associated with the memories, the experience, is over!

    There are three parts to the God-head: 1) God the Father; 2) God the Son; and, 3) God the Holy Spirit. In the church, we are comfortable with the first two parts of the God-head, but many churches are not comfortable with teaching and training about the third part of the God-head, the Holy Spirit.

    Any church that does not teach, train and operate in the supernatural realm of the Holy Spirit and regularly teach and train those called in to healing and deliverance is a crippled church. Why is the church crippled? Because the leadership and the membership will not have an available arm of ministry where hurt people can be healed. And you know that every breathing human in the church has something the need healing and deliverance from, right? After all, the church is a hospital for the spiritually sick.

    What is the purpose or goal of demons?

    As stated in John 10:10, the thief [satan and his demons] come to steal from you, and to kill you, and to destroy you. This is true for every human born, which includes you and every person in your family lineage. Satan and his little demons are so pleased the more you choose to remain unlearned about him and his demons. Why does this please satan? Because he can continue to have dominion in your life or parts of your life. All the while, you continue to blame things in your life on coincidence, bad luck, you being different or you just can't stop doing something.

    Why is it critical for you to understand demons as a Christian?


    Picture a green plant in a flower pot. Most Christians when dealing with life’s issues deal with the symptoms. The symptoms are the green leafs on the plant. Integrated healing and deliverance deals with the roots of the plant in the flower pot that you cannot see. The green plant represents your life. The demons represent the roots of your life challenges and problems. Unless the roots of your life issues are identified and dismantled, you continue to see manifestations in your life.

    Let me give you an example. Let’s say there’s a person who has a drug stronghold. Typically, you’ll hear people talk about the drugs, the lack of responsibility the person shows, how the person steals, how the person will not keep a job, etc. While all of those things are a reality, none of those symptoms are the root(s) of the person’s problem. Integrated healing & deliverance targets, identifies and dismantles the root system of your life’s problems.

    What do demons hate?

    Demons hate many things, but I’ll share four things. One, demons hate God. Two, demons hate believers using a heavenly prayer language because they cannot understand what’s being prayed; demons can understand you praying in English or your native language. Three, demons hate scripture, which is why scriptures must be used when actively dealing with the demonic. And four, demons hate humans, which includes you.

    Demons do not play fair in your life. Demons show you, your family and your church no mercy. May I ask the next logical question? Why do you choose, by default, to exercise grace toward the very demons that are still stealing, killing and strategizing to destroy you, your family and your church? Have no mercy on demons in your life; be brutal with them in exercising your authority!

    How do demons manifest or show themselves in daily life?

    How do demons relate to generational curses and strongholds?


    Exodus 20:5-6
    … For I The Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me.

    Exodus 34:7
    … visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and fourth generation.

    Numbers 14:18
    … visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fouth generation.

    Deuteronomy 5:9
    … visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.

    Now, why did I share these four scriptures with you? One, because they are true because they are in the Word of God, the Holy Bible. Two, because these scriptures clearly establish generational curses.

    Each of you reading this article have parents, grandparents, great grandparents and so forth. Because none of us came from perfect families, that means that both sins and iniquity were present in their lives. More than likely, most of us didn’t even know the people extending back to the 4th generations on our mom and dad’s side of the family.

    One thing you must understand about God is God sees me and you as part of a family unit. We are born into a family unit and remain in a family unit until we die. You can’t get into the world bypassing a family structure. Most of us think of ourselves as an individual. I’m sorry, but that’s not how God views us. We are all connected, and initially that’s through the family structure, which links you into the generations referenced in the four scriptures above.

    So, what’s the bottom line here? Did every person in your family on both sides of your family repent and confess of all their sins and iniquities. Probably not. Because each of us is born into our families, the iniquities of our parents and the other people unto the fourth generation weigh against us from our inception in the womb. What does this word iniquity mean? Iniquity is inner heart tendency from your fore fathers sins pressing, weighing, leaning against you to do the same thing [sins] they did.

    Do you and I have to give in to the pressure? No, but many times we do. Why does this pressure exist? Well, satan’s job is to kill, steal and destroy your life. We know that satan doesn’t play fair, that’s a given. Well, how early should satan start working on you? As early as possible. Well, how early is that? He, satan, starts when you’re in the womb, the moment of conception plotting and strategizing on how to take you out.

    Click here to listen to the audio titled Demons Entering Through The Womb. Be encouraged to listen to this; it is a good, sound, biblical teaching.

    Well, how does satan know what to try on you? One thing we know about satan is he looks at what’s worked well historically, generationally in taking out your family. Since your parents, grand parents and those back to the fourth generation probably didn’t do anything about their generational curses, he automatically starts with those sins and iniquities to see if you’ll give in to the pressure and follow suit – yet adding on another generation continuing the bondage.

    Well, reader, most of the time, this works so flawlessly, that satan and his demons have very little work to do in our lives. So the question for you reading this article is, what are you going to do about the operation of generational curses in your life? You can try to deny them, but that is not effective.

    How do demons relate to generational curses? One way generational curses have power is they are held in place to operate through the demonic realm.

    In many cases demons transmit from one family generation to the next family generation, and so forth, through a) genes; b) the environment children grow up in [we all were children at one point]; c) the universal, biblical law of sowing and reaping [that is active in every single family]; and d) demonic oppression.

    Can the transference of demons occur?

    Yes. In some cases, the transference occurs during a formal, ritualistic ceremonies.

    How do I get demons out of my life?

    Temporarily, you can bind demons and temporarily stop their mission, which is to block you from receiving God has for you. Why do I purposely use the word temporary with demons. After you bind any demon, you should complete the process by commanding each demon from your life.

    If you don’t do this, then the binding process is temporary, which means each time you see the demon manifest, you’ll need to rebind. This can become laborious, so it’s just makes sense to complete the process by commanding the demon the leave. Commanding each demon active in your life will not take place until you take care of the root reason(s) that gave each of the demons entrance into your life.

    Matthew 16:19 reads, And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.


    What are demonic voices?

    As a Christian, you should know the different ways the Holy Spirit can speak. A few examples of how the Holy Spirit speaks to us are following:

    a) in a still small voice, Acts 9: 3 – 7;
    b) by external or outward visions, Joshua 5: 13 – 15;
    c) with dreams, Daniel 2;
    d) through and inward vision, John 8:38;
    e) via personal prophecy [that should be tested and prophecy can be conditional], I Corinthians 12: 7 - 11;
    f) illumination of scripture;
    g) hearing His voice audibly, I Samuel 3:10; or
    h) in any way He chooses.

    Remember these are only a few ways you can hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. Many times many, many, many Christians are challenged in hearing the Holy Spirit in their daily lives. Why?

    a) Unrepented or unconfessed sin hinders you from hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit

    b) You feeling unworthy to hear the voice of the Lord;

    c) You being afraid [fear] to hear the voice of the Lord;

    d) You don’t even believe you, as a Christian, are able to hear the voice of the Lord, so this is boldface unbelief.

    e) Not spending regular, daily, intimate time with the Holy Spirit makes His voice foreign to you. As in every relationship, we learn to recognize someone’s voice by hearing it over and over again. This is even true for the Lord’s voice.

    John 10: 4 – 5, 16 – When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice … They too will listen to my voice …

    f) Your unexpressed disappointment or anger towards the Lord can hinder you from hearing His voice.

    g) The presence of demons operating in your life block your spiritual eyes and ears. There are certain demons that specialize in trying to prevent our receiving anything from God.

    h) Read I Samuel 3:2-10 where Samuel did not recognize the voice of the Lord

    How do demons strategize?

    One strategy demons use is to see what has worked successfully on those in your family lineage – particularly your parents, grand parents, and so forth. If no one in your family line has broken the generational curses held in place by the demonic, the curses continue.

    A biochemist once explained to Derek Prince, "A human body is attacked regularly by cancerous cells. When that body is healthy, its immune system identifies and attacks the cancerous cells, and they are unable to harm the body. But when the body has been weakened by illness or some kind of emotional shock, the immune system is unable to do its job effectively, and some form of cancer can develop somewhere in the body."

    Immediately Derek Prince said to himself, that's just how it is with demons!

    A second strategy demons use | Demons continually seek to invade you, but when you are spiritually healthy, the spiritual immune system within you identifies and attacks the demons, and they are not able to move in and take control of you. Any kind of unhealthiness or emotional weakness on the other hand, makes you vulnerable to demonic attack.

  • adjustment, anxieties, attacks

    Did you know that properly prescribed prescription meds is the number three cause of death in the USA, according to the American Journal of Medicine?

    Natural Herbs for Brusitis

    If you have brusitis, you'll need each of the six Pure Herbs below. Two to four times a day, you'll apply each of the six pure herbs to the respective area on your body. At night before you go to bed, you'll apply pure herb Vitamin E with Selenium and pure herb Ol' Number 11 by putting both liquid herbs on a piece of gauze. You'll then secure the gauze to the respective part of your body using something like saran wrap.

    Rue | Herb no. 1 for Brusitis

    Rue is so valuable was it considered in the Old Testament times, along with Mint, a person could pay their tithe [monetary offering] in Rue or mint. Rue is for strong eyesight. It strengthens the eye muscles. Also esteemed to give one insight. Kills parasites when strewn on the floor or when taken internally.

    Can be rubbed on stings and bites to allay their torment. Wonderful functional aid to the ovaries and uterus to insure regular periods [do not use if pregnant]. Calms anxieties and irrational states brought on by daily strife and worry.

    Used to cure sprains, aching tendons and pain in feet and ankles. Rue works on the cartilage between the bones to remove and prevent deposits. Think Rue for tennis elbows, damaged joints and carpal tunnel syndrome.

    For example, if carpal tunnel syndrome problems [pinched nerve problem at the wrist with resulting soreness, weakness, tenderness and reduced thumb movement], rub Rue on the shoulder, wrist, back of hand and thumb along with Herbal Adjustment and Oil of Cajeput and Arnica.

    Also take internally, A.C.S. [All Cells Salts], 40 drops, 3 times per day for minerals, to prevent cramping. Use Rue to relieve dizziness and glandular enlargements. Relaxes tense shoulder and neck muscles. Corrects whooping cough and croup [alarming raspy breathing]. Apply externally to the troubled area, in quantities needed to cover the area liberally, three or more times per day.

    Dose |Internal use - 5 to 20 drops in water or fruit juice before meals. Children: 1 to 5 drops in water or fruit juice [if whooping cough, every hour while awake]. To strengthen eyes: 10 to 40 drops daily. For falling sickness and all other purposes, 40 drops before meals, diluted in water or fruit juice.

    To order Rue, click here.

    Arnica | Herb no. 2 for Brusitis

    Arnica is for external use only. Excellent first-aid for bruises, sprains, broken bones or concussions. Make several applications externally to the area until relief is felt. This is a very swift remedy.

    An overnight soak can be made for serious cases by putting 40 to 80 drops in ½ cup of water and dampening a cloth or gauze with the solution and covering the injured area. Cover this with plastic sandwich wrap and hold in place with a bandage. Change the dressing once a day and allow the area to dry before reapplying the dressing.

    If the skin is sensitive, then apply Vitamin E with Selenium oil from 100 i.u. capsules prior to the dressing. The area can also be washed between dressings. Be sure to discard old dressings and never reuse. Most sprains respond rapidly and are usually corrected with a single overnight dressing or a simple single external application by rubbing in the drops.

    Arnica can also be used on the pulse points - 5 to 10 drops on each wrist and temple and back of the neck for emotional and physical shocks, upsets, anxiety or when frightened. One to five drops a day reduces cholesterol when rubbed on the pulse points in a similar manner.

    For an excellent sore throat remedy, spray with a spray bottle the sore area, using a mixture of 10 drops of the extract to one tablespoon of water.

    Dose | External use only

    To order Arnica, click here.

    Vitamin E with Selenium | Herb no. 3 for Brusitis

    Vitamin E with Selenium is one of many compounds found normally in foods that is essential for the body. That is to say, the body needs it and can't get along without it.

    What does it do?

    It is now fairly well established that Vitamin E with Selenium acts to make sure all of the structures of the body receive enough oxygen. This is a good idea in order to stay healthy and to rebuild health regardless of what the problem is. When there is enough oxygen, the body can go about its business burning fuel and destroying poisons.

    This is why a list of conditions, which have been observed to be helped by Vitamin E with Selenium, could fill up a closely typed page. Hence, you do find improvement with the health of the blood, hormone levels, the ease with which the heart works, fertility, nerves, eyes, muscle strength, brain, skin, digestion, energy, breathing easier, and just about anything you would care to mention, including the rate at which you age.

    Keep in mind, for Vitamin E with Selenium to do its job properly you must do those other nutritional and life style things that help it to work. It does not operate in a vacuum. This means, make it part of an overall health improvement approach.

    Examples of life style change are: clean the small intestine and bowel so it can be absorbed and moved around, and thus can be pumped through the body. It is a team player and it also needs the rest of the nutritional elements the body requires in order to get the most out of it. The most active form of it is called d-alpha tocopherol by scientists. The most common source for it today, in capsule form, is soy beans.

    Note | Vitamin E with Selenium oil from capsules can be applied externally to areas in need that have trouble absorbing it from the digestive system. It can be applied to skin disturbances, injuries, and burns, to lessen discomfort, speed recovery and minimize scarring.

    Caution
    | It is not known to be toxic when a person takes it as a supplement to the diet. The question is, how much? Therapeutic doses in scientific literature may range from 40 i.u.  to 4,000 i.u. Of course, anytime you take what is called a therapeutic dose, it is recommended to do so on the advice of your doctor or health care provider.

    Adult dose | 2 capsules per day or as advised by your doctor or health care provider.

    Ol' Number 11 | Herb no. 4 for Brusitis


    Ol' Number 11 is used to repair or strengthen any type of brain, nerve, flesh, cartilage or muscle injury or weakness. If you cannot work on the area directly, then take Ol' Number 11 internally. 40 to 80 drops, 3 times per day for repair or adding strength to the body. For severe injuries or heavy athletic training, 1 tsp. to 1 tbl., 3 to 4 times per day.

    Additionally, for serious injury, you can work on the area directly. One very successful procedure is as an overnight application. Apply several things directly to the area externally. Apply the herb arnica directly to the skin of the area or around the site to get the physical shock out of the area. In this way, the injury can heal rapidly.

    Next, apply Vitamin E with Selenium from 100 i.u. capsules to improve the action of oxygen for repair and to prevent irritation if very sensitive skin. At this point, apply externally, either peppermint oil or Oil of Cajeput and Herbal Adjustment and then Formula No. 4. This relieves pain and improves the circulation in the area to be repaired. Next, soak a single layer of natural fiber cheese cloth or absorbent gauze with Ol' Number 11.

    Wrap this cloth, soaked with Ol' Number 11, around the injured area and cover it with plastic sandwich wrap. Then, wrap a cloth around all to hold in place for overnight. The next morning, remove the application and discard. Wash the area and allow to dry. [Never reuse the application, as this thermal and moisture barrier application also draws poisons out through the skin, as well as driving the repair herbs internally.]

     

    Repeat the application procedure for the daytime. Continue with an application for the day and night until well. As an aftershave, to baby the skin and make it smooth and soft, apply a few drops of Arnica followed by a generous amount of Ol' Number 11.

    Combination includes | White oak bark, marshmallow, mullein, mugwort, indian tobacco, scullcap, knitbone, black walnut hull, gravel root

    Dose
    | For internal use, 40 to 80 drops, after meals and as given above. For external use, soak a cotton ball with Ol' Number 11 and apply to the injury three to four times per day.
    To order Ol' Number 11, click here.

    Oil of Cajeput | Herb no. 5 for Brusitis


    Oil of Cajeput comes to us from the tropics of India and the Molucca Islands of Indonesia. This small tree, or tall bush with drooping limbs, is much like a weeping willow, with multiple layers of paper-like-thin bark.

    Cajeput oil is related, in function, to something called tea tree oil, but the action, and not unpleasing taste of Cajeput, is preferred by a great many herbalists. In spite of its tropical home in a humid, hot environment, the Cajeput tree does not fall prey to fungus or infections because of the antibiotic oil which circulates in its sap [circulatory fluid]. It maintains very good health, thank you.

    This oil can be taken by people for the same purpose. If candida yeast infections are a problem, then mix three to four drops with a little food and eat at each meal. Naturally, to prevent reinfection, drug antibiotics must be eliminated from the diet, as well as meats, where the animals have been fed on antibiotics as part of their diet.

    Another thing to consider, is possible reinfection where the yeast problem would be traded back and forth. In this respect, sexual partners must exercise care to prevent reinfection.

    *A bowel program is also a must to eliminate the bowel residues which play host to, and furnish a convenient home base for the yeast to retreat to or attack from. If a cold or the flu, sprinkle a few drops of Oil of Cajeput on a handkerchief or tissue and breathe deeply, as needed, to keep nostrils open.

    To open stopped up sinuses immediately, put one drop of Oil of Cajeput in one half cup of water [distilled is best] and irrigate the nose, lean the head back and sniff several drops through the nose into the throat. An eyedropper is a good aid to this procedure. In cases of flu, fever, tight chest and or laryngitis, place one to two drops directly on the tongue and apply several drops to the throat and chest area.

    Cover up and sweat the mucus loose as the oil penetrates and breaks up the infected mucus. You may cough up mucus as tough as tire treads, but you will be well in a very short time. Oil of Cajeput is a pain reliever if sinus blockages or headaches occur. Apply the oil to the painful area and the pain leaves.

    The same can be done for toothaches or tooth abscesses, to clean them. Place one drop of the oil on a cotton ball and lay between the gums and cheek and leave there until relief. For external sores and abscesses that just won't heal, mix one part Oil of Cajeput with three parts olive oil, place on gauze and lay over the area.

    The area will slough off diseased tissue and build healthy, pink, repaired tissue in short order. For relief of swollen breast(s) due to congestion, apply full strength to breast(s) externally as needed.

    For boils and carbuncles [multiple boils involving an area], generously rub the Oil of Cajeput directly on the area. The oil will penetrate at once and relieve the pain, and mix with the purulent [pus] material and push it out or dissolve it.

    Oil of Cajeput is very handy to have around the house for ordinary cuts and scrapes, as well as, serious cuts and gashes. In these cases apply, as needed, full strength to heal without a scar and prevent infection. You need not medically wash the area and cause more pain. Just apply, or let drip on, the Oil of Cajeput.

    Swellings around the toenails or fingernails are repaired by a few drops directly applied. Ringworm and external fungus infection, such as athletes foot, are also quickly dispatched by Cajeput. If dryness occurs in the area where Oil of Cajeput is used, also apply oil from 100 units vitamin E capsules.

    If head lice, mix one part Oil of Cajeput with three parts of olive oil and apply to the scalp. Leave on overnight and shampoo next morning. Repeat each evening until free of lice. Then, 10 days after free of lice, repeat process to kill any remaining lice or hatched eggs. In cases of colitis problems with hemorrhages, apply 80 drops of Cajeput oil, three times per day to the abdominal area.

    When erosion of the cervix occurs, douche daily with 5 drops of Cajeput in one cup of distilled water. The same mixture can be used as a vaginal douche for gonorrhea. Impatigo [a highly infectious rash of yellow, pus-filled skin blisters] can be fully corrected in a short time by direct applications. Oil of Cajeput is truly a potent weapon among our herbal resources for building better health naturally.

    Dose | As given above. For mosquito and insect bites, apply directly to the area. To repel mosquitoes, apply externally to exposed area. Do not get in the eyes. If this happens accidentally, flush with water.

    Herbal Adjustment | Herb no. 6 for Brusitis

    Herbal Adjustment is a quick acting dramatically effective procedure for relief of headaches, leg cramps, menstrual cramping, arthritic discomfort, sports injuries, back discomfort, neck and shoulder tension, heart attacks, strokes and internal bleeding. For relief of pain and cramping two liquids are applied to the skin, one is peppermint oil which is cool and the second is a combination of herbs known as Herbal Adjustment which is hot . The peppermint oil is applied first and the Herbal Adjustment second.

    The procedure of using these two liquids together is called an Herbal Adjustment. In some cases, as given here, Herbal Adjustment is also taken internally and will be described individually. This procedure will not interfere with medication and will not make a person groggy. Needles and injections are not used.

    Headaches and tension
    For headaches, first apply peppermint oil from the tip of the tailbone, up the spine, and on to the neck and the back of the head, on the scalp, and on up to the top of the head. Make the application about the width of the person's hand. Next, apply the two liquids to the temples and forehead. Have the person lean the head back so as to avoid getting any of the liquids in the eyes. [Should an accident occur, flush thoroughly with water, remain calm and peace will return.]

    Also apply to any additional areas of the head which are hurting. Finally, apply in front of and behind the ears, down the neck on both sides and out to the shoulders. This complete application will have an effect on the entire nervous system of the body. The affects are quick and relief is swift. Repeat as needed.

    For additional help, if needed, put 40 to 80 drops of Herbal Adjustment in a cup of water and drink it down. Do not sip as it is hot and best to get it over with as soon as possible. If a mild headache is in progress, usually an application of the two liquids to the temples, forehead and back of the neck are all that is needed for headache relief.

    Chiropractic Adjustments
    The Herbal Adjustment liquids penetrate quickly into troubled areas. After application the liquids at once relax the nerves and muscles, which then allows the bones to go back into their proper places and the circulation resumes its normal function. In this way oxygenation and relaxation of cramping muscle pain is alleviated.

    The Herbal Adjustment liquids may be applied several times in extreme conditions and then repeated as needed. Do not get into eyes, and wash hands after application. Application before a chiropractic adjustment makes for a very easy and quick adjustment. It will be noted the adjustment is speeded up and sticks [stays in place] far longer.

    Arthritic discomforts
    For arthritic discomforts the two liquids are applied to the area as needed.

    Cramping and menstrual cramping
    If cramping or menstrual cramping, apply the two liquids directly to the offending area. If additional help is needed put 40 drops of the combination Herbal Adjustment in a cup of water and drink it. [Herbal Adjustment will not stop a normal menstrual flow as it is a natural bleeding.] Repeat as necessary.

    Heart attacks, strokes and internal bleeding
    To stop a heart attack, stroke or internal bleeding put 40 to 80 drops of the Herbal Adjustment in a cup of water and drink it. Also, apply to chest and neck or area(s) of bleeding. Repeat as needed. If stress is great and a heart attack is a real possibility while you are trying to repair the heart with other herbs such as myrrh and mullein, [and or others, see: Historical Uses of Herbs at the beginning of this work] use Herbal Adjustment to keep yourself alive during the process even if it takes months. Lives have been saved by doing this.

    Liver spots or age spots, as they are also called, dissolve easily with the continued daily application of Herbal Adjustment on the spots. Please consider that in some way, the body is not functioning as it should or these liver spots or waste dumps of concentrated pigment, would not have appeared in the first place. If they do occur again, then think in terms of improving overall health as needed, such as digestion and bowel elimination, to start with.

    For suggestions consult the Historical Uses of Herbs in the front of this work. [Remember to follow the advice about not rubbing your eyes after application of Herbal Adjustment or bringing Herbal Adjustment into contact with private areas. If an accident, then follow the advice as given earlier in this topic.]

    Skin cancers
    It must be observed, to be truly appreciated, how the daily and persistent application of Herbal Adjustment externally to skin cancers, dries them up, causes them to fall off and leave healthy, pink skin in their place. This process can take as little as a matter of days or two weeks and, in some cases, up to six and nine months or more, but it does work.

    It is suspected that when Herbal Adjustment takes so long to do its job, that it is working on a problem much deeper inside the body, of long standing, and you are working on something more than just skin deep. Nevertheless, praise the Creator, it does work.

    Persistence is the key here, no matter what, continue the application at least once per day and for more desperate conditions, three and four times per day until results. Before you heal anything you usually have to slow the condition down and then stabilize it. Then reversal can take place. But, in the meantime, you are not getting any worse and that is a kind of victory too.

    Many practitioners also use Vitamin E with Selenium oil from capsule(s) on the area first and then apply Herbal Adjustment on top of that. This reduces any possible irritation and assists in repairing the area more quickly, with the prevention of any possible scar tissue.

    Sports injuries
    For sports injuries such as sprains, twists, bumps, bruises, torn tendons, ligaments, etc., apply Arnica to the area to take the physical shock out of the nerves, then peppermint oil and then Herbal Adjustment to the area for relief of pain and to correct the circulation. Then, apply the repair formula Ol' Number 11 to start the repair process.

    This is done as soon after the injury as possible. Repeat every three to four hours as needed. However, it should not be thought that this procedure will not tackle chronic and old injuries with equal determination, because it will. The night procedure for sports injuries is to open capsules of 100 i.u. of Vitamin E with Selenium and apply the oil to the injured area.

    Then, soak a natural fiber cheese cloth or gauze with the repair formula Ol' Number11 and wrap the area with the cloth. The larger the wrap, the greater and quicker the affect. Wrap this then with plastic sandwich wrap, and an additional cloth wrap around this, to hold everything in place for the night. This procedure forms a thermal and moisture barrier, to drive the herbs into the area and pull poisons out, in a time-release action during the night.

    The herbs are driven into the body, congestion is broken up, swelling reduced and function restored. There is a two-way traffic flow here. Herbs are pushed into the body area and poisons are pulled up and sweated out of the body at the same time. The next morning remove the application and discard the herbal cloth as it is spent and contains poisons. Wash the area and allow to dry.

    Note |This process of applying an herbal tea or herbal extract to the body soaked in cloth is know as a fomentation. For the daytime, apply the herb Arnica, Peppermint Oil and Herbal Adjustment every three to four hours. Repeat this daytime and nighttime process until the area is repaired.

    Lower high blood pressure
    To lower dangerously high blood pressure, put 40 to 80 drops of Herbal Adjustment and 40 to 80 drops of Golden Bough in a cup of water and drink it. Repeat as needed.

    Herbal Adjustment combination includes the following herbs |Black cohosh, blue vervain, capsicum, indian tobacco, siberian ginseng.

    Dose | As given in the above work. Additionally, Herbal Adjustment can be given as part of a daily herb regimen, to spark an herbal program and get it to work, at the rate of 40 drops in a cup of water, 1 - 4 times per day.

    Note: Just the Herbal Adjustment combination is put in water to make the drink. If a peppermint tea is desired, only 1 - 2 drops of the oil to a cup of water makes a good tea.

    Chiropractic physicians
    When the area to be adjusted is too tense for the needed procedure, peppermint oil and Herbal Adjustment applied to the spine, neck and shoulders rapidly relaxes the areas. Then, minimal pressure is required to achieve remarkable results.

    Massage therapists
    Peppermint Oil and Herbal Adjustment applied to tense areas of the spine, neck, shoulder and other areas [avoid eyes, under arm and private areas] produce a warming and relaxing effect which makes therapeutic massage a very rewarding experience.

    General note
    | If for some reason a person should have an allergic reaction to peppermint oil, [if there is one, it is usually confined to temporary redness of the skin] many practitioners enjoy the use of Oil of Cajeput in its place.

    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.

    Thank you for taking your time to read this article, beloved reader.
