The Asthma Epidemic is preventable!

Someone is going to be asthma free, might as well be you! Some family is going to be asthma free might as well be yours! Following Biblical advice, can help you and yours avoid this devastating and costly disease.

 

Asthma, epidemic, preventable, disease, Bible, Dr. Wallach
Asthma is the leading chronic disease in children.

Exodus 23:20-26 states, in a nutshell; If you listen carefully to all that I (God) say, and do it, I will remove all sickness from you, and I will give you a full life span. We believe that this sickness-free promise includes asthma.

How prevalent is asthma?

  • According to the Centers for Disease Control, 1 in 13 people have asthma.
  • Asthma is the leading chronic disease in children. It is also the top reason for missed school days.
  • Asthma causes almost 2 million emergency room visits each year.
  • Each day, ten Americans die from asthma.

What is asthma?

Asthma causes swelling of the airways. This results in narrowing of the airways that carry air from the nose and mouth to the lungs. Symptoms include trouble breathing, wheezing, coughing and tightness in the chest. In severe cases, asthma can be deadly.

What does Dr. Joel Wallach say about asthma? 

Asthma, epidemic, preventable, disease, Bible, Dr. Wallach

Asthma is actually a deficiency of three nutrients: magnesium, manganese, and the essential fatty acids (EFA).  And by taking the Pig Arthritis formula twice a day you’re going to get the optimal amounts of te plant-derived colloidal and the chelated magnesium and manganese.  And then by taking minimum daily requirements of the 9 grams of the essential fatty acids, that would be 3 of the Ultimate EFA capsules with each meal, 9 a day, that’s going to give you the minimum daily requirement of the essential fatty acids, and those three nutrients together – magnesium, manganese, essential fatty acids, will allow you to produce what’s called prostaglandin.

Prostaglandin’s are little short-lived hormones that last in your bloodstream 30 seconds, 60 seconds.  So your body is continuously making them, kind of rapid-fire, and when you don’t have those three nutrients you’re not making the proper prostaglandin’s to keep your bronchi and your tracheae open, and that’s when you develop asthma.

It’s very common when people take all 90 essential nutrients including the magnesium and manganese and the essential fatty acids, within weeks or months the tightness that’s a constant tightness in their chest is significantly reduced, or even totally relieved.  The frequency and severity of their asthma attacks significantly is reduced.  Certainly still keep an inhaler available in case you have some unexpected emergency, kind of like wearing your seat belt.  Even though you’re on a smooth flight and you’re not going to anticipate sudden turbulence, you need to be prepared for emergencies, but you have every honest expectation of doing very well.”

According to Dr. Wallach, these are the foods to avoid that can lead to asthma and foods to eat that will reduce your risk of an asthma attack.

Foods to avoid.

Wheat and any food with gluten

Barley

Rye

Oats

Fried foods

Oils in a bottle

Well done Red meat

Nitrates or Nitrites

Crispy skin or baked potatoes

Carbonated drinks/Soda

Foods to eat.

Eggs

Butter

Salt

Dark leafy vegetables

Nuts, except peanuts

Rice and Beans

Red meat

Poultry

Fish

God’s word!

Once again, the foods God said to eat will help you avoid asthma and other diseases. The foods that God said not to eat will increase your risk of disease. (see our article “Where to begin”)

Asthma, epidemic, preventable, disease, Bible, Dr. Wallach

None of our children or grandchildren have asthma. Our daughter Leah, the one pictured above, did started developing asthma symptoms while going to college. She had an athletic scholarship at Oregon State University. Her sport was crew, which required a lot of heavy breathing and many, many hours of practice. Getting good grades and competing at the Pac-12  level created a lot of stress. My wife Shary, got her to increase her Essential Fatty Acid consumption, so by changing her diet she was able compete without any more symptoms. She is now a health teacher and mother of two beautiful children; she and her family are asthma free.

Horrifying study finally puts an end to the PRO-VACCINE crowd!

Vaccines, vaccinations, drugs, medications, Bible, science, disease, children

In December of 2016 we published a blog that questioned the safety of vaccinations. A shocking new study has come out that confirms our earlier conclusion!

Vaccines, vaccinations, drugs, medications, Bible, science, disease, children
http://www.cmsri.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/MawsonStudyHealthOutcomes5.8.2017.pdf

The conclusion, “Vaccinations are not safe”

According to the Children’s medical safety research institute. “Thirty-two million American children – a full 43% of them – suffer from at least one of 20 chronic illnesses not including obesity.'” Illnesses caused by vaccinations.

Most children are  exposed to, “50 doses of 14 vaccines by age six, 69 doses of 16 pharmaceutical vaccines containing powerfully immune-altering ingredients by age 18. The article also exposes the use of aluminum, mercury and tissue from aborted fetuses found in vaccinations.

Proponents for vaccinations still quote debunked study.

Proponents for vaccinations still quote a 2004 Pediatrics study claiming to refute a link between autism and vaccines even though one of its authors, their own top scientist William Thompson, has admitted that he and his colleagues colluded to obscure and then shred data (he kept copies) which showed a link between autism and the MMR vaccine. “Oh my God, I can’t believe we did what we did,” Thompson confessed in one taped telephone chat to Brian Hooker, a bioengineer professor at Simpson University and the father of an autistic child.

Permanent damage cause by mass vaccinations!

Every “magic pill” that promises help, but bypass God’s advice has a dark side. My wife Shary and I grew up in homes where the doctor’s word was gospel and indisputable. There was a pill or surgery for every ailment. We grew up in the fifties and sixties, when science was king, and vaccines were supposed to eradicate all disease. We grew up in a culture where there were mass immunizations.

Vaccines, vaccinations, drugs, medications, Bible, science, disease, children
Vaccine lines of the 60s

We were all lined up at schools like lemmings, to receive our sugar cube vaccinations. Later they found that some children received mild crippling from those vaccinations, My wife Shary was one of those children.  Shary had to wear leg braces after being vaccinated.  To this day, the effects from that vaccine means that shary has to buy two different sizes of shoes.; one size for her left foot and another for her right foot.  Because of the vaccine, one foot is a size bigger than the other. Another side effect of those vaccinations is that Shary has one leg that is longer than the other, which illustrates that there are no magic pills without harmful side effects. Today, polio vaccinations are the #1 cause of polio, is that crazy or what.

So what does God have to say about vaccines, drugs, and medications???

Vaccines, vaccinations, drugs, medications, Bible, science, disease, children
Sugar cube vaccine we lined up and took at our local school.

Our English word Pharmacy, is derived from the Greek word “Pharmakeus.”

According to Strong’s Greek Dictionary…

Pharmakeus can be translated…druggist, pharmacist, sorcerer or poisoner.

Pharmakeia can be translated…medication, magic, sorcery or witchcraft.

When the Bible uses the word Pharmakeia, it is referring to medications drugs or vaccinations.

When the Bible uses the word Pharmakeus, it is referring to a person who makes, distributes or uses drugs and vaccinations.

The following passages are Bible verses that contain the Greek words Pharmakeus and Pharmakeia. We have left the Greek word, untranslated, in each passage so you can get an idea how God views the use of vaccines and drugs and the giving and making of vaccines and drugs.

Galatians 5:19-21                                                                                                                              The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity debauchery; 20 idolatry and (Pharmakeia); hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Revelation 9:20-21                                                                                                                         “The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver bronze stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or walk. Nor did they repent of their murders, their(Pharmakeia) their sexual immorality or their thefts.

Revelation 18:23                                                                                                                                        “…By your (Pharmakeia) all the nations were led astray.”

Revelation 21:8                                                                                                                                          But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice (Pharmakeus,) the idolaters and all liars—their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

Revelations 22:15                                                                                                                      Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice (Pharmakeus), the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.”

God places vaccinations and drugs in the same category with murderers.

God puts the use of drugs and vaccinations, (Pharmakeus) in the same category, as drunkenness, sexually immorality and vile murderers; maybe because peoples lives are being ruined and people are dying. He says that those who practice, (continually commit) these sins will have their place in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. These passages from the Bible make no distinction between illegal drugs and legal drugs. Most importantly, your body does not know the difference either.

Vaccines, vaccinations, drugs, medications, Bible, science, disease, children
Schauermann family with many of the grand-kids and spouses.

Our kids are much healthier than Shary and I were as children, as can be seen, genetic predisposition to disease is extremely overrated. Most of them never saw a doctor while growing up, we never paid for health insurance because we never needed it.

Most of our children never got any vaccinations, though some were forced to by the military. One of our sons after receiving military vaccinations got really sick, which underscores the statement, “every “magic pill” that promises help but bypass God’s advice, has a dark side’.

Biblical principles to live by.

  • Doctors Are Not Gods.
  • Science Is Not King. Man’s Wisdom Is Foolishness to God.
  • Pharmacia (Drugs, vaccinations) Are Not Your Savior,
  • God has placed instructions in his word to help us. If we follow His instructions, God says he will keep us free from every disease and give us a full lifespan.

At the end of the day, THE ONLY WAY TO EXCEPTIONAL EMOTIONAL, SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH, IS TO SPEND TIME EACH DAY LISTENING TO THE GREAT PHYSICIAN, JESUS CHRIST AND DOING WHAT HE SAYS!

The law and the prophets; friends or foe? Part 1

bible, God's law, old testament, curse, bewitched, nutrition, dietary laws

Most New Testament teachers say that it is definitely not biblical to follow God’s law concerning food!

bible, God's law, old testament, curse, bewitched, nutrition, dietary laws

In this weeks blog we will explain why they say that about God’s law, and give our explanation from our experience, from science and from God’s word.

The apostle Paul makes this statement about God’s law…

You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.” Galatians 5:4 

 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you?  It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified. Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith? Galatians 3:1-2 

Because of these passages, many bible scholars, believe that following old testament rules and regulations displeases God. Some have even told us that it puts us under a curse. Consequently, most preachers not only ignore the valuable information about healthy living found in God’s law, but teach people that it is something they must not do.

Deuteronomy 7:11-5 states that if we are careful to follow God’s law, he will keep us free from every disease. In Exodus 23:20-26 God says that if we are careful to do all that he says, he will take away sickness from us and give us a full lifespan. 1 Timothy 3:16 says that all scripture is God breathed and useful. This certainly includes God’s law as found in the Old Testament, since that was all the scripture they had when this was written.

So what is the truth, should we be careful to follow Gods law or not? Will it bring health or a curse?

We believe the proof is in the pudding, the answer is found in the results. Does following God’s commands bring a curse or blessing on those who do it? We see people every day who follow God’s law, are healthier than people who ignore them. There is a lot of science to back up what God has said about food choice. We believe that the reason so many very good, honest, God loving pastors die young, is because they ignore these conditions and promises from God’s word. Here are some notable examples; we could produce thousands.

bible, law, old testament, curse, bewitched, nutrition, dietary laws

  • Evangelist John G Lake,

Lake preached to hundreds of thousands of people in Africa and America. He died at the young age of 65. Lake was not overweight, he was fit as a man can be. He had a very powerful healing ministry and started the now famous healing rooms that are all over the world. His wife died about twenty years before he did of malnutrition. Lake died of a stroke ten years short of the average American lifespan of 75.

  • Aimee Semple McPhearson

Mcphearson started the Four Square denomination. She was one of our nations greatest evangelists and was a successful faith healer. Mcphearson looked as healthy as could be, she was not overweight, she led an active lifestyle, but sadly she died at the age of 54. She had been very sick, the day she died she had called her doctor numerous times to see if he could help her, he was in surgery and never got her call . God said we are to live to 120 and our strength should equal our days. If Aimee had lived an average american lifespan, she would have had 21 more years of ministry.

bible, law, old testament, curse, bewitched, nutrition, dietary laws
William Seymour is pictured in the front row second from the right. His ministry crossed all financial, age and racial boundaries and literally changed the world.
  • William Joseph Seymour

Seymour was an American minister, and an initiator of the Azusa Street Revival. Seymour was one of the most influential individuals in the revival that grew into the Pentecostal movement. That movement has now spread across the world. The largest denomination in the world is Pentecostalism. The largest most influential churches in the world are Pentecostal. It all started in Seymour’s church.  the Azusa street church walls were covered with canes and crutches left there by people who had been healed. At 52 Seymour had two massive heart attacks and died. He was a very healthy looking young man who loved God and loved people.

What went wrong?

So many great movements of God were hindered by the early death of their leaders. Leaders who believed God would heal them and keep them free from disease, but did not do what God said must be done to stay healthy and live a full lifespan. Other  great leaders did listen to God’s advice, consequently they where going strong long into their nineties. Following God’s law includes his dietary laws. Following God’s laws will keep Christians active in their gifts many years past the average american lifespan.

So what did Paul mean when he said, “You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.” Galatians 5:4

Paul is saying that if anyone thinks obedience to God’s Law needs to be added to his or her faith in Christ, so they can be justified or saved, he is alienating himself from Christ. In Galatians 3:1-5 Paul further states that such a person is bewitched.  Obedience to the Law cannot add anything to what Jesus did on the cross for us.

Christ plus nothing = salvation.

I know of one congregation in Portland Oregon that split over just this issue. Half of their congregation actually started to do animal sacrifices for the forgiveness of sin. From a Christian perspective, that is nuts, Christ died once for all and there is no need for sacrifices any more. Obedience to the law cannot save us from eternal punishment. Jesus also confronted the Pharisees on this point.

You diligently study the Scriptures (Old testament law and prophets) because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.” John 5:39,40

Jesus was teaching that God’s law never could save anyone and that he (Jesus) was the source of salvation. So; since salvation is only found in Jesus Christ, and by his grace, does that mean that God wants us to stop observing God’s  law. Does that mean we are to stop following its advice? (See Proverbs Chapter 1:29-33) Since God cannot love you and me anymore than He already does, since obeying the law won’t make him love you more, why should you obey the Law?

Because there are other reasons to follow the law apart from salvation.

First; what God likes and does not like has never changed. God’s law states that we should not bear false witness, that we shouldn’t tell lies. Everyone knows that if you continue to tell lies, people will not like you or believe you even if you tell the truth. No one would say that if you follow that law you would be under a curse; no, it is just the opposite.

Secondly there are unwanted consequences to disobeying God’s law apart from Hell. The law is for physical health, that is what the word states. It never says obedience to the law will save us from hell, it says that it will save us from disease and a shortened life.

A third  point to make, is that the followers of Christ did not stop obeying and teaching the law after Jesus was crucified. In Acts chapter 22:12-16 Paul is describing the Christian who guided him and healed his eyes.

A devout observer of God’s law!

A man named Ananias came to see me. He was a devout observer of the law and highly respected by all the Jews living there. He stood beside me and said, ‘Brother Saul, receive your sight!’ And at that very moment I was able to see him.” Acts 22:12-16

God obviously used Ananias in a powerful way and the scriptures commend his way of life by describing him as a “devout observer of the law.”

It is interesting how we are all disgusted with famous preachers who are not devout observers of the Law.

Men and Women who are drunkards, steal money, lie, or commit sexual sins. We reject them as poor representatives of God. God and the world are still looking for men and women that are living devout holy lives. The world is also looking for men and women to follow, men and women who are not constantly struggling with disease or struggling financially. The Old Testament has wise words to help us avoid, these problems.

Shary and I have some Christian friends that we have known for over 30 years. They love God and love people; are a tremendous blessing to us in many ways. They are givers, that is, they freely give to missions and to people in need…BUT… they have a strong belief that it is a sin to obey God’s Law, (found in the Old Testament), even though they are great givers they believe that if you follow the Old Testament advice, you are putting yourself under God’s Law and that is wrong. Let me give you an example of how that’s working in their lives. Malachi 3:8-10 states…

bible, law, old testament, curse, bewitched, nutrition, dietary laws

Will a man rob God?

 

“Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me. But you ask‘How do we rob you?’ “In tithes and offerings. You are under a curse—the whole nation of you—because you are robbing me. Bring the whole title into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this.” Says the Lord Almighty. “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.”

These friends of ours are convinced that tithing is wrong, simply because it is found in the Old Testament. They believe that they would be putting themselves under a curse if they follow this Old Testament teaching. Here are the results of their belief system. In the 30 years we have known each other, this couple has lost more money than most people will ever see in a lifetime. They have lost two inheritances; each one was hundreds of thousands of dollars. They have had numerous huge business ventures fail and they have taken out bankruptcy at least once that we know of.

What they are experiencing looks a lot like the curse that Malachi said would happen if you don’t tithe.

A retired pastor

I have another friend who is a retired pastor, he has stated that he believes Old Testament tithing is wrong . He struggled financially his entire life, which isn’t all that uncommon for pastors. When he retired he received a large inheritance, which he believed would take care of him and his wife, very well, the rest of their lives. It was all lost in a couple of years through unfortunate circumstances beyond his control. Again, what he experienced was exactly what Malachi chapter 3 says will happen to people who rob God by not tithing.

My point in relaying these stories is that if you obey God’s law, you will get what God says you will get…a blessing, not a curse. Again, I want to emphasize that observing God’s Law won’t get you to heaven.

So if God’s law won’t get you to heaven what good is it?

Proverbs 4:20-22 states…”My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body.”

The apostle Paul states in 1 Timothy 1:8…”We know that the law is good if one uses it properly.”

God’s Law is good for exactly what he says it is good for, in both the New Testament and the Old. It is good for producing life and health

So history, personal experience and science all point to the fact that listening to God and following his advice about food choices will bring life and health to any man or woman’s whole body.

Scientific Proof, God Wrote The Bible!

Disease, bacteria, Black Death, Church, Pastors,

Proof, God wrote the Bible!                                       

Disease, bacteria, Black Death, Church, Pastors,
God has not left or abandoned us. He has told us everything we need to know and written it in his book the Bible

Thousands of years before Louis Pasture discovered bacteria, God had already given Moses instructions that would protect people from diseases that are caused by  bacteria and viruses. It is an amazing testimony to the fact that the Bible is the inspired word of God. There is no other conclusion that can be made.  The bible is God’s love letter to us, His instruction manual to keep us from harm and it is being confirmed every day through scientific discovery.

The Black Death

Proof, God, Bible, Black plague, church, pastors
Young and old, men and women,  rich and poor; the plague was no respecter of persons.

The Black Death was one of the worst tragedies in human history. It could be said that it was one of the darkest reasons for the dark ages. It claimed the lives of over 60 million people. The disease was not prejudiced; it took the lives of the young as well as the aged. It killed rich and poor alike, men and women. Before it was eradicated, it prematurely wiped out approximately one third of the populations of China and Europe. It was not brought to an end by science or medicine; it was brought to an end by church leaders and the Bible.

Proof, God, Bible, Black plague, church, pastors
2000 years earlier, God gave man a plan to stop the spread of disease. If only men had listened, this could have been avoided.

Medical science had tried everything it knew and everything had failed!

It was at this point the Church and Bible believing pastors stepped in and suggested that the commands found in Leviticus chapter 13, 14 & 15 concerning contagious diseases should become the law of the land. People were desperate and decided to follow the Biblical instructions concerning contagious disease.

In the Law of Moses, God instructed his people not to touch dead bodies and to quarantine diseased people.  It stated that even clothing could transmit disease. It was originally thought that rats were the cause of the plague, but new research disproves that theory and places the blame at human to human contact.

God also instructed his people to wash infected clothing with water, if that didn’t work, burning the thing with fire was the final solution. We understand all these things today because we can see bacteria through microscopes. In Moses’ time and during the dark ages they could not see bacteria, but God could, and instructed them appropriately.

Jewish persecution broke out in Europe  during the plague because the Jewish people were not effected like the Christians. This gave some speculation that the Jews were to blame, consequently whole Jewish communities were murdered by local mobs. Had the Christians of the day listened to Jesus words before the plague, “who ever teaches and practices the law will be called great in the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:19) they not only would have been spared but would not have mistakenly blamed the Jews for their misfortune.

God’s instructions more than 2000 years before the discovery of bacteria!

As long as he has the infection he remains unclean. He must live alone; he must live outside the camp.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Leviticus 13:46

 “he shall order that the contaminated article (of clothing) be washed. Then he is to isolate it for another seven days. After the affected article has been washed, the priest is to examine it, and if the mildew has not changed its appearance, even though it has not spread, it is unclean. Burn it with fire”,                                                                                                                                                  Leviticus 13:54 

 “The person to be cleansed must wash his clothes, shave off all his hair and bathe with waterthen he will be ceremonially clean. After this he may come into the camp, but he must stay outside his tent for seven days. On the seventh day he must shave off all his hair; he must shave his head, his beard, his eyebrows and the rest of this hair. He must wash his clothes and bathe himself with water, and he will be clean.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Leviticus 14:8

Bible instructions concerning contagious disease, “Superstition”?

Proof, God, Bible, Black plague, church, pastors

Believe it or not, during the dark ages, these instructions found in the Bible were thought to be superstitious and out-dated. Without knowing anything about germs but simply following God’s instructions, the Black Death was not only stopped, but it was completely eradicated, it no longer exists.

In the Book, “None Of These Diseases”,  S.I. McMillen tells of Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis who practiced and taught medicine at the Vienna General Hospital in 1847. The hospital was celebrated at the time, as being one of the world’s best, hosting a school of medicine. But in that great hospital and at that time, eighteen percent of the women, who delivered babies at the celebrated hospital and were attended to by doctors, died of “Labor Fever.”

Dr. Semmelweis observed that only 3% of the women who were attended to by the midwives died. He postulated that the only difference was that the doctors did autopsies and the midwives did not. Semmelweis had also observed a close friend who had cut his finger while doing an autopsy on a woman who had died of labor fever. His friend came down with the same symptoms and died.

Proof, God, Bible, Black plague, church, pastors
Doctors would routinely go from doing an autopsy to delivering a baby without washing their hands.

Something was being transferred from one person to another.

Semmelweis postulated that something from the dead woman was transmitted to his friend and had caused his demise. Semmelweis then did the unthinkable. He changed the traditions of the day. He ordered everyone doing autopsies to wash with chlorinated water before seeing any other patients. The hospital was in an outrage, but Semmelweis would not be dissuaded. Consequently, the death toll dropped immediately to an all time low of 1%.

You would think that that would be the perfect end of to a wonderful story. Instead, Semmelweis got fired! The other doctors didn’t want to wash their hands all the time, so the hospital went back to its previous traditions and the death rate went back up to 18%.

Following  procedures found in the Bible, got him fired over and over!

Semmelweis was hired by a hospital in Budapest and again he instituted his revolutionary procedures and, you guessed it, the death toll dropped to almost nothing. But as before, his colleges ridiculed him in person and through books. Semmelweis became so angry that he publicly denounced one famous physician of the day with these words “Your teaching… is based upon the dead bodies of new mothers slaughtered through ignorance. I denounce you before God and the world as a murderer, and the History of Labor Fever will… perpetuate your name as a medical Nero.” Again Semmelweis was fired and the old traditions returned.

He died a broken man!

Semmelweis’ discovery was never embraced during his lifetime and he died a broken man. Had the people of that day simply listened to God’s advice and loved God’s wisdom and knowledge, countless young mothers and wives would have been spared pain and death.  If the husbands, fathers and mothers of those young women read God’s word and put it into practice, they would not have been at the mercy of the foolish experts of their day.

God speaks to this situation in Proverbs!

How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? If you had responded to my rebuke, I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you. But since you rejected me when I called and no one gave heed when I stretched out my hand, since you ignored all my advice and would not accept my rebuke. I in turn will laugh at your disaster: I will mock when calamity overtakes you—when calamity overtakes you like a storm when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind. When distress and trouble overwhelm you. Then they will call to me but I will not answer: they will look for me but will not find me.

Since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the Lord, since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke. They will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes. For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them: but whoever listens to me will live in safety and ease, without fear of harm.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Proverbs 1:22-33

The unfortunate thing is that Christians and their doctors are still not listening. Listening to God’s word and putting it into practice will lead to safety and easy fearless living. It will also lead to faith. Jesus said that if you do what he said you would believe, because God’s word works. 

Truly; the only way to exceptional emotional and physical health and wellness, is to spend time each day with the Great Physician, Jesus Christ!

Tried everything, still sick, maybe it’s spiritual?

Spiritual warfare, sin, sickness, disease, fear, confession, Bible, name of Jesus, armor of God

Not all disease and pain can be fixed by medicine or nutrition. The source of your problem may be spiritual!

Often people spend all their time and money pursuing a physical answer to a spiritual problem.

Spiritual warfare, sin, sickness, disease, fear, confession, pruning, Bible,
When everything else has failed; Jesus can you help me?

She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse.

Mark 5:23

A woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. She had spent all her money on physicians, but no one was able to heal her.                                                                                                      Luke 8:43

In both of the preceding passages, Jesus healed these women who had run out of medical options.

When you have spent thousands on doctors and drugs, and gotten worse. Then you bought every nutritional supplement known to man and are no better. You followed the advice of friends who told you to stop eating foods with chemicals, gluten, sugar, saturated fats, dairy, etc. Now you are starving and still sick as a dog.

You may not have a physical problem, you may have a spiritual problem.  

A good example is of this was when one of our girls was 7, a babysitter exposed her to the movie “It.” The “monster” in this movie disguises himself as a clown. I am told, the monster lived in the sewers and would come out of toilets to get people. This movie was written by Stephen King  and was designed to scare the heck out of people. The problem with movies like this is they can do just the opposite.  They scare something into people and it is not good!

Spiritual warfare, sin, sickness, disease, fear, confession, pruning, Bible,

It wasn’t her fault!

Our daughter didn’t want to watch the movie, but  the house was dark and she was afraid to go to another place in the house alone. While watching the movie, she was overcome with fear. She understandably believed the lie, that this monster was real and was going to get her. The Bible says,  “the devil is a liar and he is the father of lies.” The devil uses lies in order to accomplish his goals.

After watching this movie our daughter could hardly sleep, and when she was able to sleep, she had to have the lights on. She was afraid to go to the bathroom; fear ruled her life. Even though it was not her fault, she was exposed to this horrible movie, it had a spiritual effect on her. The devil  never  plays fair.

Lying spirits bring disease.

The spirit of fear that gripped our daughter brought with it the most severe case of shingles I have ever heard of.  She broke out with painful fluid filled blisters, they completely covered her stomach and looked like fish scales. We tried everything to get rid of the shingles but in the end it was prayer that did it.

Are you dealing with fear or do you have a physical ailment that won’t go away?  It may be  time to seek the Lord and do some spiritual warfare.

“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”

1 Peter 5:8

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground”

Ephesians 6:10-13a

Notice, it’s not our armor, it’s God’s full armor!

It’s not our power; it’s God’s mighty power!

In every case, Jesus is  the answer.

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5

What our daughter needed was to take some thoughts captive, but we need God’s weapons to do that!

So what are those weapons?

  1. The Name of Jesus is the most powerful weapon. Simply call on the name of the Lord.
  2. The Word of God. Take thoughts captive, and command those thoughts that are opposed to God’s Word to leave! Every time one of those lies comes to your mind, quote God’s word that is the truth. For instance, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” Find scripture that applies to your situation or thoughts.
  3. Faith. Jesus said that when you are praying and believe what you say, you will get what you are praying for. (Matthew 21:22) You and I must have faith in God.
  4. Confession. James 5: 14-16 tells us to, “confess our sins to each other and pray for each other so that we may be healed.” Often people are healed when they confess their sins. Find someone you trust, and don’t leave anything out, then receive God’s forgiveness. (1 John 1:7-9)

Our daughter was eventually healed. Sometimes spiritual warfare takes time, not every war is won in a moment.  Sometimes you have to battle for an extended period, and if you do not give up, you will prevail.  Our daughter now a mom with 5 very healthy kids.

We have prayed with countless people who have been set free from all manner of illnesses. God will do it for you as well. Jesus is the answer, God’s weapons are mighty and they are always available.

Truly; the only way to exceptional emotional and physical health, and wellness, is to spend time each day with the Great Physician, Jesus Christ!

Vitamins and Minerals part 1

Woman with iodine deficiancy

Vitamins and Minerals in the Bible?

 vitamins-1

Vitamins and Minerals. Twenty plus years ago, I was helping coach my son Peter’s high school soccer team. One day after practice, he challenged me to a foot race. He was the captain of the team, but I thought I could still keep up with him (oh, the foolishness of midlife). So we lined up with the other players and coaches watching; someone yelled go, and off we went, male egos and all. We were neck and neck about halfway down the field when it felt like a giant hand grabbed my ankle and threw me to the ground. As I struggled to stand up, I looked and there was a huge indentation in my left thigh. That pulled muscle created a hole that is still there to this day.

Pulled muscles had always been a problem for me, but the problem got much worse after I had a physically traumatic experience climbing Pikes Peak in Colorado. When we began the climb, we were told that we had to make the summit by a certain time because there was increased lightning danger after that. So with very little air, and quickly trying to climb from 6,000 ft. to the 14,000 ft. summit, I evidently pushed myself too far. I just remember the last hour or so, it took every big of will power to just put one foot in front of the other. I now realize that that event had depleted my already low mineral levels.  I just didn’t feel right for months. This is a common experience for people who have had any kind of trauma.  Joel Wallach says, “Exercise without supplementation is suicide” When I finally realized what I was suffering from, I took massive amounts of vitamins and minerals. About two weeks later the symptoms were gone.  I was my old self again; except for the pulled muscles.

If you have one or more of the following symptoms, you probably have a copper deficiency: chronic pulled muscles, gray hair, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, sagging skin, crow’s feet, to name a few. I had most of these, especially pulled muscles.  It got to the point that every time I went to play soccer, I would warm up and stretch for at least 15 minutes and within five minutes I had pulled a muscle.  Some of them were quite serious. It just about ended my participation in soccer, one of my favorite pastimes.

After listening to a lecture by Dr. Joel Wallach, I realized my problem was not old age, but a severe copper deficiency.  So I followed Dr. Wallach’s advice and began taking 2 mg of copper a day. In only a couple of weeks, I was able play soccer with only a minimum amount of warming up and stretching. The pulled muscles were gone!

Copper is the necessary nutrient for elasticity in our tissues, muscles, skin, arteries and veins.

vitamins-2

Now for the most important information about copper; the most permanent symptom of copper deficiency is a ruptured aneurysm, which usually ends in death.  If your veins aren’t elastic, they, like your muscles, will break or rupture instead of stretching.  If you have any of the above mentioned symptoms, get some copper today.   It is cheap and the capsules are some of the smallest and easiest to take. They could literally save your life.

Otherwise healthy people who may only lack one or two vital vitamins or minerals die by the thousands each year; I could have been one of them. So, where in the Bible does it say we need to take vitamin or mineral supplements? It doesn’t but there are some instructions in the bible that could keep us from having so many vitamin and mineral deficiencies.

Leviticus 25:1-5 “The Lord said to Moses on Mount Sinai. Speak to the Israelites and say to them: When you enter the land I am going to give you, the land itself must observe a Sabbath to the Lord. For six years sow your fields, and for six years prune your vineyards and gather their crops. But in the seventh year the land is to have a Sabbath of rest, a Sabbath to the Lord. Do not sow your fields or prune your vineyards.  Do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the grapes of your untended vines.  The land is to have a year of rest.”

vitamins-3

From a Report of Bureau of Soils, U.S. Department of Agriculture, 1923.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture stated as early as 1923, that our soils were completely depleted of minerals and that they must be supplemented. They also stated that it only takes 5-10 years to deplete the soil.3 God said let it rest every seven years, which gives the soil time to release its minerals and allows needed minerals to be available again to plants. By the way, some people assume that organically grown food is always better. Not if it is grown in depleted soil; plants cannot manufacture minerals that aren’t readily available in the soil. Plants can only absorb minerals that have leached out of the larger rocks and that takes time.

vitamins-4

Christopher Byrd, a bestselling author, had the idea that all you need to do is eat organically grown food. He wrote “Secrets of the Soil” and “Secret Life of Plants.”4 He practiced what he preached and lived on organically grown food.  He did not supplement with any vitamins or minerals.  He believed that organically grown food was the answer to long life.  He died at the age of 68, seven years short of the average American couch potato. He had a ruptured aneurysm, and died of a simple copper deficiency.  Either letting the soil rest every seven years or supplementing his diet with a few pennies of copper per day and he might have lived to be 100.

According to Harvard Medical School, there are 14 essential vitamins and 16 essential minerals that you need to be conscious of for good health. Essential means that you cannot live without them in your diet. According to Dr. Joel Wallach there are 60 essential minerals, 16 essential vitamins, 12 essential amino acids and 3 essential fatty acids that have been identified so far.1 These nutrients are necessary for our bodies to function properly. The normal way for us to get the 60 essential minerals is for the plants we eat to extract them from the soil.  Also, the best way for the animals we eat to get those minerals is to get them from plants that live in soil rich with those minerals. To sum it up, if it’s not in the soil, or not in the soil in a form that is available to the plants, it won’t be in the plants and if it’s not in the plants, it won’t get into you!

So, what did the Agriculture Department recommended to farmers in order to solve the problem of soil depleted of available minerals. They suggested adding nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. These three nutrients will make the plants grow big and green.  But, if you have done your math lately, you will realize that three minerals are 57 minerals short of the 60 essential minerals that we need.  I believe that had we followed God’s advice of allowing the land to rest every seven years, we would still have mineral rich land. Just a thought! And for you Bible history buffs. The people who followed these instructions lived long healthy lives.  The Caleb. mentioned in the bible, was 85 and still strong enough to fight in hand to hand combat, with heavy swords.

vitamins-5

“and now behold, I (Caleb) am eighty-five years old today.  “I am still as strong today as I was in the day Moses sent me; as my strength was then, so my strength is now, for war and for going out and coming in. Joshua 14:10b-11

What a stud, at 85 he was still as strong and healthy as he was when he was 40. He was also ready to prove it by physically taking on 20 to 40-year old’s who were in their prime.

Another interesting fact is that pre-flood mankind, according to the Bible, lived a lot longer than post flood mankind.  Some excavations of preserved pre-flood vegetation have produced amazing findings. Unlike our present vegetation, this pre-flood vegetation had all 60 essential minerals.5 This would suggest that the crust of pre-flood earth had an even mixture of minerals whereas post flood mineral deposits are not nearly so uniform. If pre-flood vegetation had all 60 essential minerals and in the proper ratios. Wow, you don’t suppose that might be one of the reasons that pre-flood men and women lived to be 800 plus years old.

vitamins-6

Woman with severe iodine deficiency goiter on her neck. and the tell-tale eyes.

My family lives in what is referred to as the goiter belt. It includes Oregon and Washington and extends across the top of the United States to the Great Lake region. This area has virtually no iodine in the soil. Doctors made the correlation between low iodine and goiters, so in response, our salt is almost all iodine enriched, (iodized salt).  Before Iodine was added to salt, people living here were plagued with goiters. Unfortunately, Goiters are not the only problem with low iodine consumption. My wife does not get goiters but she often has a hard time maintaining a comfortable body temperature. She will be too cold or too hot. Taking Iodine supplements gives her body back it’s natural ability to adjust to temperature changes. Are you often too hot or too cold? You might need more Iodine.

The main point I am making is that we need all 60 essential minerals to live comfortably and healthfully past 100 years of age.  If the soil has been depleted of minerals by overuse or the soil simply never had all 60 essential minerals, then you will either suffer or you will have to supplement your diet with minerals.

Next week I will share with you some very helpful resources, that you can use to find out what minerals and vitamins you may need in order to solve any lingering ailments you may have. I will also share with you some more common minerals and vitamins that you may need. I will also show you what to look for when buying vitamins and minerals, so can get the maximum benefit from them.
