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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    DSK.| Herb no. 1 for degenerative discs


    Between the vertebrae [neck and back bones] there rests a disc-shaped structure that could be described as a tough, fibrous, elastic, shock absorber pad made essentially of protein with a gelatinous fluid-filled center. This makes it possible to walk without discomfort and also be able to bend the back and neck easily. Since we normally walk on our hind two appendages [legs] and not the front two [arms], we support the entire upper body on a column of bone, in the lower back especially. If we do not maintain our protein intake properly and or put too much stress on the discs and or gain too much weight, they can deteriorate or rupture. This brings bone into contact with bone and great discomfort results.


    The DSK. combination of herbs is composed especially of Knitbone, a type of body glue and rapid repair herb, assisted by Valerian Root, a pain reliever, Papaya fruit, which contains a digestaid, papain, to digest out any damaged material that can not be repaired and Willow bark to relieve pain and inflammation. The Willow Bark and Valerian portions of DSK allow the sufferer to, at least, get some rest due to to their relaxing and pain relieving qualities.

    DSK is a combination herb made of the following Pure Herbs: knitbone, valerian root, papaya fruit and willow bark.


    Dose | Internally, 40 to 80 drops, 3 to 4 times per day and externally, apply in quantity needed to cover the area. If trouble sleeping, then 80 drops to 1 tsp. internally, and apply liberally to the distressed area. For more involved conditions also do as follows.

    Note | In cases where serious damage must be repaired, a more elaborate and quicker approach can be taken. Make an application to area to be repaired in the manner described here. Apply to the area: Vitamin E with Selenium from 100 i.u. capsules to make oxygen more efficient in the repair process; Oil of Cajeput as a decongestant and pain reliever; and Herbal Adjustment to increase circulation and release muscle spasms.

     

    Then place a single layer of cheese cloth or absorbent gauze saturated with DSK. over the area. Cover this with plastic sandwich wrap, fix in place and leave on overnight. In the morning, remove the application and discard it. Wash the area and allow to dry. Prepare and apply a fresh daytime application like the one for the night. Repeat this regimen until repaired.

    Big Five | Herb no. 2 for degenerative discs


    Repair and relief of pain for back, neck, joints and headaches. Sports activities, accidents, injuries, sports injuries, massage therapy work, arthritic and sore joint problems. Swollen discs, seizures, folk remedy for diseases described as M.S., M.D. and Lou Gehrig's disease. Release of tension in area before massage therapy or chiropractic adjustment and benefits last longer.

    Big Five is a combination herb made of the following Pure Herbs: arnica, B.& N.C.-W [brain and nerve cocktail], Herbal Adjustment, Ol' Number 11 [Old Number 11] and Rue.


    To order Big Five, click here.


    Big Five Addendum | The object of this formula is to have a powerful, premixed herbal formula for relief and repair of back, neck, joint and headache problems. External applications are made to the areas in trouble. Arnica removes the physical shock to the nervous system which allows healing to take place and prevents further trauma.

     

    The Brain & Nerve Cocktail portion of the formula provides nourishment for the glands in the brain, the pituitary, pineal, hypothalmus, the brain itself, and the involuntary nervous system of the body. Herbal Adjustment is a combination of herbs which promotes better circulation and releases spasticities. This promotes rapid repair and relief of pain. Ol' Number 11 is an excellent tried-and-true repair combination for any bone, flesh or cartilage structure in the body. Rue is a specific for sore muscles and injured joints.


    Caution | Rue may bring on the menstrual flow, and as such it is not advisable to use if pregnant or if pregnancy is desired. Formula Four can be used in place of Big Five as it does not contain Rue. This multi-combination is a formula that incorporates many functions into one application, each of which has proven its function separately.

     

    Together, they make a powerful tool in the hands of a person for repair and relief of pain. Apply to the spine, from the tip of the tailbone up the spine [the width of the hand] on to the neck and on the scalp to the top of the head. Additionally, around the ears, down the neck and out to the shoulders, and on the temples and forehead. Do not apply to underarms, private areas or get in eyes.

     

    No permanent damage has been known to occur, but if the person does not know this, they may panic, as the formula produces the sensation of great heat. If an accident occurs, remain calm and flush with water. Peace will return again soon. This same procedure can also be used for correcting headaches.

     

    After application of the *Big Five, also apply either Peppermint Oil or Oil of Cajeput to complete the pain relieving, corrective procedure. In the area where the injury has occurred or physical shock of the nervous system has occurred there may be an increased sensation of heat. Thus, the problem area is especially benefited. The effects of the combination usually last for at least 3-4 hours.

    Directions for use | *External application only. Repeat as needed, one to three times per day for relief of pain and then daily until healed. In conditions described as seizures, M.S., M.D. and Lou Gehrig's disease, after application of Oil of Cajeput or Peppermint Oil, apply peanut oil to the spine and neck, after warming first in the hand, as an insulation for the nerves. Use peanut oil, without a preservative, from the health food store and keep refrigerated after opening.

     

    A novel use of the Big Five for sports use is to put 1 oz. of the extract in a 1 pint [1/2 liter] spray bottle of distilled water, then add three drops of peppermint oil. Shake the mixture well to mix the peppermint oil with the water and extract each time before using.

     

    Spray on legs or joints before activities such as bicycling, skating or running to keep muscles from cramping and extend performance abilities. If applying the extract full strength, avoid prolonged contact with sunlight, as some individuals have rather sensitive skin and need extra protection to avoid redness or soreness occurring due to interaction with sunlight.

    * As this formula contains Arnica, which can, in rare instances be somewhat toxic to some individuals and the sensation of heat is produced by Capsicum, the precaution of external use only is applied to this combination. Oil of Cajeput and Peppermint also produce a great cooling and or burning sensation, so avoid contact to eyes, underarm or private areas as well.

    Formula Four | Herb no. 3 for degenerative discs

    Is the same as Big Five Extract, except that it does not contain the herb Rue . The herbs and herbal combinations, Herbal Adjustment, Ol' Number 11, Arnica and B.& N.C.-W form this highly effective team for external applications to the spine and neck. For best results, especially where pain is involved, apply either Oil of Cajeput or Peppermint Oil to the spine and neck and then Formula Four.

     

    Formula Four can also be carefully applied to the temples and forehead and other areas of distress. Avoid contact with eyes, underarms and private areas. No permanent damage is known to occur if there is an accident, however, if the person does not know this, panic can ensue as there is the sensation of great heat. Flushing with water helps some, but patience and time are best to restore harmony.


    Formula Four relaxes cramping and relieves many kinds of pain, including headache [Herbal Adjustment], repairs body structures [Ol' Number 11], removes trauma [physical shock] to the nervous system [Arnica] and nourishes the voluntary and involuntary nervous systems [brain and nerve cocktail].

     

    Rue is an excellent herb for the repair of sore and damaged muscles and joints. Historically, however, Rue has also been used to bring on the period, if it is suppressed. To avoid any possible complications in case of pregnancy, Rue has been excluded from Formula Four.

    Formula Four is a combination herb made of the following Pure Hebs: herbal adjustment, Ol' Number 11, arnica, B.& N.C.-W.


    Dose | Apply externally as given above and as needed.

    L.P.-W [liquid pearle]| Herb no. 4 for degenerative discs


    Arthritis and correction of circulation are closely associated. When the circulation returns, usually the arthritis goes away. L.P.-W also provides the energy for this to take place. L.P.-W is especially for frozen joints where there are waste mineral deposits in the joints or on the bones.

    L.P-W is a combination herb made of the following Pure Herbs: Angelica, Echinacea, Ginger, Marshmallow, Broad Beans, Spikenard, Eucalyptus, Gentian, Lady's Slipper, Bee Pollen, Prickly Ash and Myrrh.


    Dose | 40 to 80 drops per meal, or 3 times per day


    To order L.P.-W, click here.


    Ol' Number 11 | Herb no. 5 for degenerative discs

     

    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 Four.

     

    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.


    Ol' Number 11 is a combination herb made of the following Pure Herbs: white oak bark, marshmallow, mullein, mugwort, indian tobacco, scullcap, knitbone, black walnut hull and 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 3 to 4 times per day.


    To order Ol' Number 11, click here.


    R.S.T.-C [repair of scar tissue]| Herb no. 6 for degenerative discs


    Formulated by Pat Courter and Lynn Scott. Scar tissue can form in areas of low oxygenation, and in areas that have been traumatized. Pat has come to the conclusion that when stored shock or trauma are eliminated, it helps to relieve aches and pains caused by shock and trauma. It has been said that scar tissue can form within 48 hours after injury.

     

    For the best results: take R.S.T.-C internally, and apply externally along with Arnica, on the area of the skin near or on the affected organs, muscles, nerves, ligaments, bones or vertebrae. Arnica and R.S.T.-C work great together.

    R.S.T.-C is a combination herb made of the following Pure Herbs: All Cells Salt, Chickweed, Ho Shou Wo, Skunk Cabbage and Oriental Mustard Seed.


    Dose |Internally: begin with 10 to 20 drops 2-3 times a day; gradually build up to 40-80 drops 2-3 times, a day. Externally: enough to cover the area.

    Caution | Do not exceed 80 drops three times a day of R.S.T.-C. The lymph glands carry most of the debris away and we do not want this cleansing action to occur so quickly that discomfort might result.

    Herbal Adjustment | Herb no. 7 for degenerative discs

    Is 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, apply first 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 crampin
    g | 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,
    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. 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 Oil with Selenium from capsule(s) on the area first and then apply Herbal Adj. 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 3 to 4 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' Number 11 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 3-4 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 is a combination herb made of the following Pure Herbs: Black Cohosh, Blue Vervain, Capsicum, Indian Tobacco and 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.

  • halloween

    By Redge Peifer

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

    Halloween

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

    The Druids And Human Sacrifice

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

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

    Reincarnation

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

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

    Sacrifice Of Children

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

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

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

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

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

    The Pumpkin

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

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

  • Beloved, biblical, Chester Kylstra

    If you are going to do business with God, the currency is forgiveness.

    Hello Beloved reader. I decided to write this unforgiveness article for you because it helped me. A few months back I attended an open-to-the-public ministry session where these questions were asked. I think many of us Christians were surprised at how many times we answered yes. Remember now – be honest with yourself. No one will see your paper but you.

    Unforgiveness is one of the most powerful enemies in the body of Christ today. Do you know how many illnesses or infirmities are directly related to unforgiveness? One thing all people who are called to work in healing and deliverance should know when dealing with illnesses is to learn if the person standing or sitting before them has an issue with unforgiveness.

    It is critical to learn if there is a single person that they’ve not forgiven. It is necessary to ask the person when exactly in their life were they diagnosed with the illness. Proceed to ask the person what life events were going on at or near that time. Often, the following are typical responses a person might give.

    I've experienced betrayal. I lost my job and the boss could have let another person go because I was there longer. These are two of many reasons any person could share as to why they’ve not forgiven someone.

    Now listen, beloved reader, do you know that sometimes people have instantly been healed of their infirmity on the spot once this unforgiveness has been taken care of spiritually. Keep in mind this is one of four things that must be addressed in an integrated healing & deliverance ministry session.

    Will you get out a piece of paper and a pen, pretty please? Now, read the statements below. Each time the statement is true for you, make a check mark on your paper. Once you’re done reading each statement on the unforgiveness stronghold, you’ll talley up your score.

    Answer these unforgiveness questions honestly


    1) I find myself holding grudges.

    2) I retreat into isolation from others.

    3) I erupt in anger or I boil inside.

    4) I think of ways to get even with others who hurt me.

    5) I just bury the wrongs done to me without really addressing them.

    6) I pity myself.

    7) I carry bitterness and anger towards those who have hindered me or willfully, purposely wronged me.

    8) Instead of stating the truth, I make excuses for those who wronged or hurt me.

    9) I often feel sorry for myself.

    10) Occasionally I think I truly am some kind of martyr.

    11) Nobody has had it as bad as me.

    12) I want to get even with people who’ve cause me pain.

    13) I insulate or protect myself behind the walls of defensiveness.

    14) I don’t trust others.

    15) I just can’t forgive [which really is you want forgive].

    16) I’m anger with God for allowing bad things to happen to me.

    17) I act like nothing happen instead of confronting issues that have hurt me.

    18) I can’t get over my past.

    Please talley up your check marks to see how you scored.

    If you have 1 – 4 check marks, you’re in the lower percentile [25%] of operating in unforgiveness.

    If you have 5 – 9 check marks, you’re in the middle percentile [50%] of operating in unforgiveness. This is average for most Christians. Now, we all know what the Bible clearly states about any unforgiveness, right? So even if you scored in the lowest percentile, it needs to be taken care of.

    If you have 10 – 14 check marks, you’re in the upper percentile [75%] of operating in unforgiveness. Yep, you betcha – this sure enough has to be addressed because you’re in bondage beloved.

    If you have 15 or more check marks, you very likely have the stronghold of unforgiveness. If you don’t know how to break this stronghold and remove the demons holding it in place in your life, learn or go receive ministry please. What book would I suggest that’s a must read, Biblical Healing & Deliverance: An Integrated Approach to Biblical Healing Ministry by Chester & Betsy Kylstra.

    Beloved reader, you already know the key to forgiveness is releasing the debt. By forgiving, you are not justifying what the person did to you is okay. By forgiving, you are not minimizing the devastating impact what they did has had on your life.

    Well, here's the age old question – why is it that it’s so darn hard to forgive some things, some people. It is because the one time hurt or the repeated hurt has wounded your soul or wounded your spirit or wounded both. Usually the hurt(s), even though they can’t be seen, have really crippled you inside. The crippling could be mentally and/or emotionally and/or physically. Some hurts have downright debilitated some of us to the point that illness occurs.

    And if we're transparent here, not forgiving the person make some Christians they have a [false] sense of power over the person [especially if the person wants to be forgiven]. As long as we choose to not forgive any person for any thing, we literally carry that person with us daily. What do I mean? You have a shackle attached to a ball-and-chain at the bottom of your ankle.

    The weighted ball-and-chain is directly attached to each person you've not forgiven. You literally carry their body weight around with you all day long. In the shower, to bed with you, in the car with you, to the grocery store with you. More importantly, you carry those you've not forgiven with you mentally and emotionally every day, which is yet another reason you're weighted down internally. Although we still respond to people saying, "We're fine, blessed, highly favored."

    So beloved reader – we’re at a crossroads here. The Bible says to forgive and that forgiveness is non-negotiable. Well yeah, this is true. What’s been learned in integrated healing & deliverance is sometimes we first have to have the Holy Spirit take care of the hurts at every spiritual and emotional level before the forgiveness can even be approached. And in very extreme cases, the forgiveness takes times, like in layers, which is better than not at all.

    Please know if you are a person who works in ministry or if you are a leader of any kind, people will violate you. You cannot afford to allow this unforgiveness to place you in bondage. Let’s look at Joseph’s life in the Bible. He had so many reasons to not forgive his brothers. What did Joseph do [Genesis 39]? He stayed before the Lord, and yes, he forgave his family. Even though Joseph was a grown man, he sobbed like a child.

    What is forgivness?

    Is a spiritual decision to release the person, entity, institution or group who hurt you, betrayed you

    Is cancelling someone from the consequence of falling short of God’s standard in your life

    Is releasing resentment toward the very person who exacted very real hurt on you

    Is dismissing our demand that the person owes us something

    Is releasing the right to be bitter

    Is releasing the right to get even

    Is of God

    Is releasing the right to hear the words, “I’m sorry.”

    Is an act of our spiritual will

    Is a process especially for those who’ve been abused/deeply hurt

    What forgiveness is not

    Is not a feeling

    Is not an emotion

    Is not being a doormat

    Is not conditional

    Is not stuffing your anger

    Is not based on what’s fair

    Is not excusing the wrong done to you

    Is not justifying the wrong done to you

    Is not you executing God’s wrath

    Is not repentance

    Is not based on what a person deserves

    Is not you waiting for time to heal all wounds

    Is not reconciliation [requires a minimum of two people] [forgiveness only requires 1 person]

    Is not enablement [a form of people pleasing and repeatedly having no boundaries]

    Is not letting the guilty off the hook, you are placing them on God’s hook

    Is not denying that the wrong happened to you

    The characteristics of an unforgiver

    Danger - If you persist in resisting and disobeying God by being unforgiving [or whatever the sin is], you can eventually to given over to the influence of evil, satan and immorality. Acts 7:42

    does not agree with God that sin is sin

    delayed or even the prevention of spiritual growth

    heart is turned away from God

    go through verbal acts of repentance

    an unforgiver often has diseases & functionally sick

    is limited in hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit

    an unforgiver can have psychological problems

    an unforgiver can be a person laden with stress

    elevate yourself above your offender

    you’re emotionally stuck to your offender

    you share negative information about offender

    automatically open the door to satan and his demons

    a hardened heart, a condemning heart

    tend to be verbally abusive

    blind that you’re becoming like your offender

    an unforgiver ages faster

    being an unforgiver affects your body’s ability to fight disease by weakening your immune system

    an unforgiver can have emotional instability – fly off the handle easily or show very little emotion

    Define the spirit of unforgivness, which is a stronghold

    A simple word to describe this spirit of unforgiveness – hurt, a person who is deeply hurt.

    A spirit of unforgiveness goes beyond temporary unwillingness to forgive.

    The spirit of unforgiveness is a spiritual acid that eats through the spirit within us.

    The spirit of unforgiveness is a supernatural cancer that slowly and deliberately eats you up.

    There is a long time period between the time you are hurt and the time you forgive the person who hurt you.

    When does unforgiveness become a stronghold?

    When you refuse to forgive and the unresolved anger develops a fortified place in your mind and heart; you become mentally captive to do the enemy’s will. Ephesians 6:16

    The three parts of forgiveness

    Part 1 |Horizontal line of The Cross -- Forgiving others and others forgiving you

    Especially needed toward family and church members because this is where most hurts come from

    Part 2 | Vertical line of The Cross -- Receiving God forgiveness and us releasing God

    Part 3 | Circle or halo where The Cross intersects -- Forgiving yourself and receiving forgiveness from self

    Why do Christians have the most difficulty forgiving themselves than any other person?

    Lie no. 1 - Sin we committed, the offense is too big to forgive

    Lie no. 2 - We knew better and committed the sin anyway

    Lie no. 3 - It’s a habitual sin and we continue to do it, it doesn’t deserve grace

    Lie no. 4 - We’re so shamed by the sin, we should not exchange the shame for forgiveness

    Lie no. 5 – You believe you don’t deserve forgiveness because of who you are

    Here, it’s effective to say your own name.

    For example, “Your name goes right here, I forgive myself for ____.”

    So why do you not forgive when you know to do so

    What was done to you or by you was too big

    The hurt was planned, intentional and/or repeated

    No modeling of forgiveness from our parents

    They didn’t forgive me, I will not forgive them

    You deny it never happened

    Don’t understand God’s forgiveness

    You believe the lie that bitterness is a normal response because God knows how you feel.

    The pain is so deep [even though it may be simple to others] you just don’t know where to begin.

    It is here where you allow the Holy Spirit to heal the pain completely first, then you’re able to forgive.

    How does unforgiveness affect your prayer life?

    blessings are withheld from us

    our prayer life is blocked

    we are spiritually dim

    God doesn’t forgive us

    God resists you

    What is unforgiveness?

    unforgiveness is a form of pride

    is of satan and his demons

    grieves the Holy Spirit

    showcases a godless heart

    keeps us in bondage to sin

    is an offense to God, which makes us an offender to God

    Forgiveness scriptures

    Ephesians 4:30 – 32

    Matthew 18: 21, 34 – 35

    II Corinthians 2: 10 -11

    Matthew 6:12

    Mark 11:25

    Luke 17: 3 – 4

  • harry
    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.

    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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    24 SYMPTOMS OF ANGER - Take The Assessment Now

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    17 – I see the faults in others quickly.

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

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

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

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

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

    23 – I become impatient easily.

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

    Now Beloved reader, total you marks.

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

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

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

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

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

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

    VICTORY OVER ANGER AT THE CROSS

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

  • freefrommasturbation

    Free at last, free at last … thank God Almighty I’m free at last! I clearly remember that sunny Saturday almost 15 years ago. It was the day my 20-year masturbation addiction finally died.

    Instead of sleeping in I got up early, determined to rake and bag a yard full of leaves. Around noon I was sweaty and tired, but felt accomplished as I finished twist-tying and hauling the last heavy bag to the sidewalk for pickup.

    Afterward a much-needed shower, my thoughts turned to relaxing in bed with a book or even dozing off. As I lay there reading, my still-damp hair cooling the back of my neck, that old familiar urge to satisfy myself suddenly visited. Quickly I thought of how many times in the past weeks I had said no to the urge and how good I had felt about these victories. Not wanting to lose any ground I had gained, I cried out to God for help and just as quickly I heard His still, small Voice, Take a walk.

    Much as I didn’t want to go back out into the heat and humidity after feeling so cool and clean, I knew that I needed to obey because the conditions were ripe for a fall. I forced myself up, put on some clean, comfortable clothes and called my dog who was always up for a walk. I don’t remember anything exceptional about that walk except that later I realized it really was my final victory lap in a very long and frustrating race. Yeah! The enemy of my soul had finally lost in yet another area and God and I had finally won!

    So how did masturbation get such power over me that I was hooked for two decades? Well, it all started when I was a kid -- where many life-controlling habits, good and bad, have their roots. As a pre-teen a friend loaned me a XXX-rated paperback and I, unwisely, read the raunchy rag. It planted some really rotten seeds in my mind and heart that years later sprouted into a garden of weeds. One of those weeds was masturbation.

    Nothing happened for five years. Then one day while I was alone -- and lonely -- [not a good combination, to say the least] the pornographic words [and resultant images] that had been imprinted on my mind revisited my thoughts and I bought their dumb lies! I listened to the thoughts telling me to just try it and rationalized what could just trying it’ hurt? A lot.

     

    Almost instantly I got high on a feeling [as the song goes], which led to another good feeling episode, then another and another till this little secret became a monthly, then a weekly, and sometimes a daily routine. I wanted it yet I hated it, always fearful of getting caught. Then what?! I couldn’t bear the thought! But then I couldn’t stop either ‘cause the urge was too strong by now. Yuk! I was stuck!

    And wouldn’t you know it, this insatiable lust brought its friends who soon became part of my persona [or so it seemed]: depression, roller coaster emotions, sarcasm, mocking, self-hate, and a bunch of other unsavory emotions. Yeah, right, just try it! Forget that! Try it and get hooked - by a crook [The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy John 10:10 reads.] is more like it!

     

    Sometime after I got hooked I overheard someone say that the woman who used to live in the room where my addiction began What I didn’t know when I had engaged in some really perverted sex acts. started this supposedly innocent, feel good habit is that I, who had already been seeded with porn trash five years earlier, had unknowingly walked into a major trap/ambush that further stole my innocence and other beautiful gifts God meant for me to enjoy -- plus take heaps of humility to shed.

    So now you know how I got hooked. Let’s move on to the good part - how I got free - and how you can too! In a word: accountability. I remembered the power of this amazing tool from when I attended an Anonymous program that helped me dump another bad habit -- overeating.

     

    The leader at one particular meeting I attended told the group that if the urge to pig out came, the solution was to phone someone in the Anonymous group. Wouldn’t ya know it, a few days later I needed that advice. I bravely got up the courage to call the number and guess what? It worked! With my pig out food in front of me and my anonymous friend on the line, I told her what I was about to do and sort of challenged her to talk me out of it.


    She didn’t freak out or get offended, she just asked me what had recently happened. [Later I learned it was to reveal what triggered my binge so that she could help me avoid future set-ups and upsets]. Then she listened, which helped a lot. After dumping a bunch of pain into her ear, I suddenly realized that I was breathing more easily and no longer wanted to stuff my face with junk food when I wasn’t even hungry! It was amazing! I couldn’t care less about pigging out now because I was feeling something far better -- self respect! Cool! So I told her that then thanked her and threw the rest of the junk food away.

    It wasn’t exactly that way with getting free from masturbation, but the whole ‘blowing the lid off the shame thing’ was almost identical. I had said I wanted to get free for quite awhile, but when the temptation to satisfy myself came - usually around the time of my monthly cycle - I would make excuses and once again fall.


    It seemed like fantasy had a lot to do with it too, and not always sexual fantasies either. Sometimes living-in-the- future-fantasies, like day dreaming about what a fairytale life I was going to have … some day. But once I climaxed, the fantasies and the good feelings both disappeared and I went back to my roller coaster life with some exciting ups, but also a ton of painful downs.

    Then I got into relationship with a person -- who later became my spouse. While he also had a bunch of addictive habits -- this wasn’t one of them and he didn’t judge me -- at least not in this area. [Now between us, unless you’re married to someone who won’t condemn you, make sure your accountability partner isn’t someone [male or female] who is going to tempt you to sin sexually or in other ways].

    So one day after falling … again, I decided to try the accountability thing that had worked with overeating. And guess what? It worked! Now, please understand, it took a lot of courage to admit to him what I had just done [masturbated], but I really wanted to get free. Because of this strong desire for freedom, I became willing to pay the price [of exposing my shame] and I did.

    When I confessed that first time I was really embarrassed and I sheepishly used a code word that I knew we’d both understood. Inside I braced myself for a look [of condemnation], a sarcastic remark [I sure had said a bunch of them!] or a lecture, but instead received a gift. Very simply and kindly he said, I forgive you.

     

    Wow, did that feel good! Before he could change his mind or say anything else I simply accepted his gift, got up and joyfully went on with my life. Wow, I remember thinking, I could get hooked on that feeling!

    As good as that high was, it only lasted a few days and then the M-demons returned to tempt me again. Yup, I gave in … again. Sigh. Bummer! But, inside I knew that I was gaining ground. Why? Because I knew I had a tool [accountability] that I could use to win -- if only I would use it. So, the next time the urge came, I told myself that if I gave in I would have to confess. I did fall … but I also confessed! And you know what? It worked!

     

    The urge to masturbate became less and less with each passing month because I used this have to confess approach, which made me think twice before falling again. Then finally I was able to confess before falling and then eventually not fall at all! I strongly believe that because the demons in me knew that I was going to expose them to the Light [Jesus said in John 8:12, I am the Light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.

     

    Like scattering roaches that hate being exposed to the light, they hid [quieted down] and eventually left. They had lost their captive [me] because they saw that I wasn’t giving them any more agreement or legal ground. From that sunny Saturday to today -- almost 15 years -- I AM FREE!

    I have to give God and my forgiving, patient accountability partner a lot of credit as it took me about 10 years from the first time I first confessed this shameful habit to finally get and stay 100% free. Another really big help in overcoming this and other addictive behaviors was praying A LOT in the Holy Spirit or praying in tongues, [aka one’s heavenly prayer language].

    Here’s some really good scriptures you can look up about this wonderful gift: Luke 11: 9-13; Acts 2; I Corinthians 14: 2, 18; and Jude 1:20. If you don’t have this awesome, powerful gift, I HIGHLY recommend you seek God to receive it because when you pray in the spirit, you pray beyond your own understanding [read Romans 8:26 - 28] and you allow the Holy Spirit to pray through you. He gives you all sorts of help in overcoming this and any other shameful habits because God doesn’t want you addicted to anything or anyone but Him. He’s so awesome!

    Also, I know that some Christian leaders say that masturbation is not so bad and they downplay its effects, but if you’ve ever been hooked, like I was, you know it’s such bondage! One leader, however, whose words really did help me said this, I’ve never known anyone who wanted to move on in the things of God who didn’t have to deal with this issue [referring to masturbation] if it was a problem for them. I agree.

     

    There are all sorts of rotten spirits that come with this package. One of them is independence: I don’t need men or women. I can satisfy myself is the attitude. Wrong! God made us to be interdependent, not independent. We do need each other -- a lot more than we sometimes think. Some of the other trashy spirits that often hang out with masturbation are uncleanness, lust, shame, self-hatred, mistrust, fear, fantasy lust, perversion, self-pity, sarcasm, mocking and the victim and predator spirits. Yuk!

     

    You don’t want that mess and God sure doesn’t want it for you either! So get honest with yourself and Him and confess the fantasy and selfishness [lust is selfish; love is selfless] as sin and ask Him to show you if there is anyone [including yourself] that you need to forgive so that you can really be really free. Forgive? Yes, forgive.

     

    You see, what I realized is that I could have gotten free a lot sooner if I had known that “the axe is laid unto the root of the trees” [see Matthew 3:10]. But I do now and so can you!! Also, ask Him to guide you to at least one other trusted human being who can help you as an accountability partner. He will and you too can get and stay free!

    Also, there are some really helpful books. One that rocked my world is The Broken Image [ISBN: 0-8010-5334-X], by Leanne Payne. On pages 77 - 81 she shares about a man named Randy, an artist, who struggled with habitual masturbation and how it inhibited not only his personal life, but also his artistic endeavors.

     

    This really made sense to me because soon after that sunny Saturday when I got fully and finally free [although it was the many coming clean times before that wonderful day that eventually led to my final freedom], I started writing poetry and joyfully dancing before God. And it was really cool ‘cause an artist friend of mine told me that she saw a real increase in my level of creativity. Another book that some friends highly recommended, but which I haven’t read is, Single, Saved and Having Sex by Ty Adams, [ISBN: 0-9740132-0-X].

    .

    I know it’s not easy to fess up, but it is so freeing and so necessary if you want to really enjoy your life and not be in bondage to this or other addictive habits. May I pray for you?

    Lord Jesus, you know everything about this person and you love him/her deeply. You know that he/she really wants freedom from this addiction or he/she wouldn’t be reading this right now. You set me free and You “do not show favoritism” [read Acts 10:34] so I ask you to give them this marvelous gift of freedom too. Help them recognize that You’re a good God, a loving Daddy and a Friend who wants to help them to be all they can be. Daddy, you gave me the courage and ability to obey I Corinthians 6:18, which reads flee from sexual immorality.

     

    All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. So please give them the peace of God, which passes all understanding too [read Philippians 4:7]. Would you also guide them to people and places where they can find one or more trusted accountability partner(s) so they too can get and stay free and then help others do the same? Thank You, Lord! I love and trust You to do what you promised in Your word: … and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.” [read John 6:37].

    In the might and marvelous name of Jesus Christ,

    Amen! [which means, So be it!]

    Victim and Predator Spirit Prayer That You Can Pray

    I give you permission God, to remove any and all traces of victim and predator spirit and I declare to you God that I need your strength and guidance to change.

    I repent of any actions on my part of submitting wrongfully to any predator spirit in any person.

    I repent of giving them authority over me. Lord Jesus, please forgive me.

    I fire every authority figure and person, who has preyed on me.

    Every teacher, mentor, boss, pastor, peer, babysitter and family member.

    I forgive everyone who has used me as a victim.

    I declare today that I am no longer a victim, or a predators’ puppet.

    I sever myself, body, soul, and spirit, from every ungodly attachment that has been made between myself and any predator.

    I take back from any predator, all wrong power and authority that I gave them over myself, that would determine a wrong identity in me, or any ungodly response. I give that authority back to the Lord Jesus, who really determines my identity and destiny.

    Where I have been a predator, I repent of any action and loose any control I have had over anyone in regard to that area. Please forgive me Jesus.

    I place You Jesus back on the throne of my heart.

    I declare victory over failure. I declare that I shall have dominion over my life, my circumstances and my responsibilities as appointed to me by the Lord Jesus, amen.

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

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

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

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

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

After years of careful research he concluded it was vitamin C that put and kept the spark of life in the body. When food is eaten, vitamin C is the substance that puts life back into the food to make it part of the body's living tissue. We now know why Bilberries, black currents, chippewa pine and wild rose hips are used for so many different conditions to recover good health.

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

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

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

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

    HERB NO. 2 FOR IRON

    HI.I.-W

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

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

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

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

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

    Papaya Mints

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Spring Greens

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

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

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

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

    Dose: 40 to 80 drops, 3 times per day

    B.P.-W

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Yellow Dock

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    HERB NO. 9 FOR IRON

    HYG.-W

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    In May on Twitter, I commented on i-n-t-e-g-r-a-t-e-d healing & deliverance. Here's what it is. Typically, when churches have deliverance service, it's either impromptu [during alter call] or it's a planned deliverance service. Both are fine because it's at the direction of the Holy Spirit.

    What's been learned by those who are veterans in healing and deliverance is many times parishioners don't stay healed and delivered for a long time or permanently. You know as well as I that those services are exhausting and a lot of work.

    Neither the pastor nor the parishioner wishes to continue redo-ing and redo-ing healing and deliverance on the same person for the same issue.

    It's even a bit disheartening to see when the person returns back to whatever they were healed & delivered from -- even if they elect not to return for another healing and deliverance service.

    Naturally, the healing and deliverance veterans within the body of Christ globally asked, "Well why isn't the healing and deliverance lasting?"

    Many books, articles and even ministries have been started around the world in response to this one question.

    Allow me to transition to me for a moment, please.

    There's nothing like my own story.

    My life bottomed out a few years back.

    That's the simplest way to put it.

    I went to talk to my [former] pastor, a great man of God and gifted leader to this day.

    He understood, prayed with me and I left.

    I told him I knew something was wrong in the spiritual realm.

    One thing I like about him, still, is he'll admit when he doesn't know something.

    Well remember -- my life was a wreck and I needed answers, which no one could offer.

    I have a [former] church member in OH who said, "Child, when you need help, you gon' find somebody to help you, somewhere, you don't care how long it takes you, you will not stay broken."

    And she's right.

    If the Holy Spirit is our all-in-all, then it didn't make sense that I had to operate in such a broken state daily.

    Long story short, I took about six weeks to fill out an application for integrated healing and deliverance ministry. I also completed prerequisites so I’d be prepared to go through the ministry.

    Integrated means two healing and deliverance ministers, also known as my ministry team, spent one week exclusively with me. There were also intercessors and prophetic intercessors praying for me, which I didn’t know until the last day. I never met them. They were interceding for me weeks before I arrived and definitely the week I was there.

    They prayed and studied over my application before I arrived in conjunction with the Holy Spirit.

    There were prophetic intercessors and intercessors [that I never met] prayed specifically regarding me for insight from the Holy Spirit.

    Their focus was, Holy Spirit help us, identify, show us the roots of where her issues began in her life that are still affecting her to this day.

    1st - That being said, they went back four generations in my family, on both sides [this is why it took 6 weeks for me to fill out that application]. They examined, studied and co-labored with the Holy Spirit regarding my family lineage to identify active generational curses that were affecting my life; we broke all those generational curses.

    It's so nice to use past tense now -- that were affecting my life. HA-LE-LU-JAH! The reality is, any person who is breathing who hasn't broken generational curses, is living actively with generational curses. It takes a good 40 minutes of simple teaching to show this reality to any Christian breathing.

    Exodus 20: 1 - 17 and Deuteronomy 5:6-21

    2nd - They [my ministry team] identified all the ungodly things [better known as lies] I believed about myself, other people [family, friends, white people, enemies, church members] and even God [based on my earthly experience with dad]. Just about every person [even if it's subconscious] draws some conclusions about God based on their relationship with their earthly father no matter how good, great, bad, absent or devastating he was.

    Women, in particular, [even if subconscious] draw conclusions about God based on relationship with men, brothers, husbands, dad, step dad, pastor, etc. [doesn't take long for me to find this by studying a person's life with the Holy Spirit]. Again, co-laboring with the Holy Spirit, we changed those many beliefs into godly beliefs.

    That is, what the Lord say is true about me, my family, my friends, white people, my enemies, men, what God says about Himself and my church members. This is a lot of work; the sentences here don't do this justice, but I have to keep it moving here.

    Isaiah 55:7 | Romans 12:2 | Psalm 139:17 | I Corinthians 2:16 | Proverbs 23::7 | Hebrews 11:16

    3rd - Oh Lord, this is the part I don't like here. You and I both know what it's so darn hard for people to forgive. You, me, the Bible and integrated healing & deliverance ministry teams around the world, agree that forgiveness is the key to freedom. Then why so many people keep having a forgiveness problem. It's preached about every single day -- 24 hours a day, on radio, tv, internet, streaming sites, tons of Bibles, tracks, CDs, christian music.

    Why? why? why? why?

    Even if a person cannot articulate it, it's the pain/hurt associated with the person or situation that they can't get beyond -- that the wall blocker. This lady said to me about 10 weeks back, Christians just outta live right, they know better -- then she quoted me some scriptures. I responded to her [as I was walking my four daily miles in the mall] that nothing matters day-to-day to any person in any kind of pain except how to get through the day dealing with their pain.

    Yep, folks are married and yes their families should be first, but dealing with the pain takes precedence. We both know there are tons of ways people deal with pain. This brings up to the next part of integrated healing and deliverance ministry. The ministry team co-labors with the Holy Spirit [in private] to deal with the roots of the person's pains.

    Ugh - I hated this part! Much needed, but I really didn't want to do this. Thereafter, forgiveness flooded like the waters of the Niagara Falls! to this very day.

    4th - The ministry team taught me in scripture my authority in dealing with the demonic activity in life. Now why I'd never learned this in church for three decades still fathoms me to this day, hell, almost makes me mad. Many churches and pastors generalize and talk about freaking freedom all the time and never gave me the tools to know how to engage daily with the warfare in my life. Can you believe this? Can you believe this?

    Do you know how many seminars, conferences, conventions, counselors, years of Bible studies, institutes, books, tv programs, pamphlets, ministries ... I've gone through in three decades.

    This is almost similar to the trillion-dollar pharmaceutical industry. Just give people drugs for a life time to treat the symptoms, but never the root cause -- all the while the meds are killing them daily and causing even more problems.

    The church -- just tells people they need to be free, have deliverance services ever so often to deal with the surface issue temporarily [but never dismantle the spiritual roots so the symptoms will be forced to die]. Well, the ministry team taught me what demonic oppression was and we commanded the demons out.

    Lastly, they showed me how to take the offense instead of always living my life in a posture of defense and reactionary mode.

    The integrated approach to healing and deliverance taught me how to stop operating day-to-day in the natural with people and address the spiritual [demonic] behind people's action.

    As you and I know every thing is spiritual. Let me underscore that again, e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g is spiritual. The more Christians operate day-to-day in the natural, the more they are frustrated, tired and defeated.

    Yep, I know we tell people to pray, and that's very much needed. But as we know, demons do not respond to prayer, demons only respond to authority. Authority which most Christians have no idea how to use daily. And no pastor and no counseling ministry in a church has the time to deal with this level of activity in every member's life.

    That changed my life!

    One week being taught was fundamental biblical tools every Christian should have and use every day -- changed my life and a 180 turn was made. I went back there [two years] to the int'l school to learn integrated healing and deliverance and I graduated with a certification in integrated, biblical healing and deliverance.

    I'm sharing this because I get tired of folk living in bondage.

    So many leaders in the church just aren't aware, but with the use of technology and continuing to co-labor with the Holy Spirit -- the body of Christ, at-large, and by denomination will have knowledge of integrated healing and deliverance.

    And you know what the benefits of integrated healing and deliverance are to a pastor.

    a) Fewer visits from your parishioners for the same issue, which means more time for you and your family

    b) The believer is empowered to deal with their own issues

    c) Your church operates in more freedom because the members have lasting healing

    d) People see the fruit of the healing and start asking the others, how'd you get like that, so multiplication begins

    e) There's no way for the church not to end up having a healing and deliverance ministry team that serves the body [or even the community] which changes families and heals up the bride of Christ so she [the church] is without a spot or wrinkle

    So many people are so deceived daily as you well know.
    They think they are just having bad luck.
    They think this is just the way it is.
    They think folk just got personality problems.
    They even think their common illnesses are just inherited through the family [rather than an extension of a generational curse that controlled by demons].

    There are healing and deliverance teams literally all over the world.
    Either people can come to us or we go to them any where in the United States or other countries.
    We are equipped to come to churches to train leaders in a group setting [healing and deliverance seminars].
