The 7 Most Important Questions Asked In Scripture

The Bible asked the most profound, piercing and penetrating questions that is relevant to every generation. No human being on earth can escape these questions, even if you do not know the Bible well, you will have to encounter these questions, because they are part of the human existence.

The most importantly unique feature about Elohim’s questions in scripture, they can have different levels of meanings based on the context in which they are used. Questions in the Bible are asked by Elohim Himself, some by angels and others by men.

Some of these questions arise out of direct confrontation by Elohim and mankind, others through casual dialog, some are rhetorical questions intended to provoke food for thought or to make deep introspection of our relationship both horizontally (person-to-person) and vertically (person-to-Elohim).

Elohim ask questions of us, not because He doesn’t know the answers, because He knows all things. The questions from Elohim in the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, are to get us to think, to repent, and to get us back in right standing with Himself and our fellowmen.

Here are my seven most profound biblical questions I believe are so designed to make us think and reflect on more than just a good answer.

Biblical Question 1: “If a man dies, shall he live again?”

(Job 14:14,)If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come”. I make this question the number one for two reasons, first it is the oldest soul-searching question in the world, because it is recorded in the book of Job which is the oldest book in the Bible. It was written approximately 3,500 years ago. The second reason I prioritize this question, it is more relevant today than at any other time.

Barring the rapture and the return of Christ in our lifetimes, we will all die someday. Is there life after death? Everyone wonders about this question at some point.

Why is their suffering? Why do bad things happen to good people? If a man die, shall he live again? As Job pondered on that question, so it still plaques humanity until this day! Is death the end? What lies beyond the veil of death if anything? (6)




Job answers his own question as inspired by the Spirit.

He answers it here, and then again in Job 19:25-26 “For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see Elohim”.

Jesus answered his question at the grave of Lazarus when he said: “I am the resurrection, and the life, he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: John 11:25

Paul answered his question when he wrote to the Church at Corinth: “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed”. 1 Cor 15:52

The believer in Christ shall experience:

a. Change in Address

One day whether through death or through the rapture of the church, we are going to change locations, addresses. We are going to our heavenly home that Christ has prepared for all those who have believed on him!

b. Change in Appearance

“Beloved now are we the sons of Elohim, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is”. 1 John 3:2

Biblical Question 2: “Where are you?”

(Genesis 3:8-12) They heard the sound of Elohim walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Elohim among the trees of the garden. (9) Then Elohim called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?” (10) He said, “I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.” (11) And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” (12) The man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.”

Did things turn out like you wanted or how I predicted?” The question also shows the heart of Elohim, which is the heart of a shepherd seeking out the lost lambs in order to bring them into the fold. Jesus would later come “to seek and to save the lost” (Luke 19:10).

This is the first recorded question by Elohim Himself in the Scriptures. It is not the first ever question mind you. That one was the infamous ‘Did Elohim really say?‘ posed by the serpent. But this is the first question from Elohim and on the surface level He is calling out to Adam, asking where He is. Of course, Elohim knew exactly where Adam and Eve were physically located. And yet He asks the question.

Why?

The question was for their benefit. Elohim was essentially asking, “You disobeyed me; how is that working out for you now? Elohim obviously wants Adam to acknowledge where he is and why he is there.

Where was he? Well, Adam was hiding! Why was he hiding from Elohim? Because he had disobeyed, fallen into sin and he was now fearful.

On the deeper level this question from Elohim goes beyond Adam, it is one that He has asked all mankind over the ages. Humankind has continued to run and hide from Elohim, and Elohim, in His compassion, has sought and continue to seek out the lost. (4)

That question is for everyone, how do you respond to Elohim asking that question of you? ‘Where are you at now?’ Are we hiding from Elohim or fully walking the path of righteousness in the light? Do we know that Elohim is ever seeking us out to draw us back/closer to Himself?

Biblical Question 3: “Am I my brother’s keeper?”

(Genesis 4:8-12) Now Cain talked with Abel his brother; and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him. 9 Then the LORD said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?” 10 And He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground. 11 So now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. 12 When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield its strength to you. A fugitive and a vagabond you shall be on the earth.”

That was Cain’s question in response to Elohim’s question of where his brother Abel was. Similar to Cain’s parents Elohim commenced His response with specific Where? and What? Questions with the intent to bring the child in error face to face with his sin and hopefully to the point of confession and repentance.

Cain was claiming to be ignorant and innocent, but his ignorance was a lie, and his innocence was sarcastic with the intent to be harsh and hurtful. But all of Cain’s responses were rejected by Elohim who said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground”. Elohim’s omniscience countered Cain’s lies.

The result of Cain’s unrepentant sin were twofold: The ground would not yield productively when tilled by Cain, and secondly, he would be a fugitive and a vagabond throughout the earth. Elohim cursed the serpent in Genesis 3: 14, He also cursed the ground in Genesis 3:17, and now Cain.
Whereas Cain’s parents confess, although in an imperfect manner, Cain did not. However, Elohim did not pronounce a damnation that would prevent him from being saved. But he was driven away from his vocation. (5)

In effect Cain became the symbol of the unregenerated man in his straying and shifting in the earth without rest or peace. However, Elohim extended to Cain preemptive mercy by not giving to him the full penalty his sin deserved, but withholding from him, despite his lack of remorse.

As the Psalmist David says in Psalm 103: 8” The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. 10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. 11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him”.

Beyond the fact that Cain had just murdered his brother Abel, Cain was expressing the feeling we all have when we do not want to care about or look after other people. Are we our brother’s keeper? Yes, we are. Does this mean we have to know where they are and what they are doing 24/7? No. But, we should be invested enough in other people to notice when something seems to be out of place. We should care enough to intervene, and look out where the needs exist that we can help. (2)

Yes, we are our brother’s keeper, and Elohim is expecting us to look out for others who are created in His image, because that is a criteria for our salvation. Jesus said in Matthew 25: 31-46

“31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.

33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’

44 “Then they also will answer [d]Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

Biblical Question 4: “Is any thing too hard for Elohim?”

(Genesis 18: 9-15): “ And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent. 10 And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him. 11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. 12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also? 13 And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old? 14 Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son. 15 Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh”.

ReadingTheWord

Elohim is omnipotent, omniscient, all-powerful, and almighty. He can do anything according to His will and purpose. In these days many of Elohim’s people are discouraged, despondent and crippled with doubt. This ought not to be, for discouragement always comes from the Devil, despondency paralyses us of useful service and doubt dishonours the Lord.

Our focus must always be on the promises of Elohim. When we lose our focus we become distracted, and distraction leads to deception. If our faith needs to be fortified, then meditation in the Word of Elohim will do the trick! Because there is nothing, absolutely nothing is too hard for the LORD.

There is no PROBLEM too hard for the Lord to solve,
There is no PRAYER too hard for the Lord to answer,
There is no PERSON too hard for the Lord to save,
There is no PROMISE too hard for the Lord to fulfil,
There is no PLACE too hard for the Lord to revive, (8)

We so quickly get discouraged in our work for the Lord. The people of Elohim are frequently heard to say, ‘The work is very hard; it has gone down terribly, and it’ll never be the same again!’ But why should we accept this defeatist mentality when Elohim is LORD of the impossible?

I agree with every word of this song by Ron Kenoly: Whose report Will you believe?
We shall believe The report of the Lord.

His report says I am healed, His report says I am filled, His report says I am free, His report says victory.

With this in mind, we can have the confidence that GOD WILL ALWAYS BE IN CONTROL and that no matter what life brings, it will ultimately be for our own good.

Biblical Question 5 “How can a young person stay on the path of purity?”

(Psalm 119:9)How can a young person stay pure? By obeying your word”: By living according to God’s Word, as the King James says, “by taking heed according to your word”. When we “hide” God’s Word in our hearts, the Word keeps us from sin (Psalm 119:11). The Bible does not tell us everything. It does not contain the answer to every question. But the Bible does tell us everything we need to know to live the Christian life (2 Peter 1:3). When we instruct young people on purity, we most often use it in terms of sexual purity, and it certainly includes that. It is also far more far reaching than just that aspect.

Why the focus on young people? Don’t us old folks fail in these areas too?

Of course we all do suffer similar temptations! So, this lesson, while directed towards a young person in the developmental stages of life, also applies to all of us at all time. It is just easier and longer lasting for some lessons to be taught and learned while a person’s mind is still transformable, teachable and able to change. In other words, before we become heart hardened and stiff necked.

Now back to our question: How does a person stay on the path of purity? As the Word of Elohim so often does, this question answers itself. We stay on the path of purity by living by and heeding the Word of Elohim, or put another way, by obeying the Word of Elohim. That’s easy, right? How do we know this is enough? God Himself tells us of the sufficiency of His word in our daily lives. (10)

Psalm 119:11 says: “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee”.

2 Timothy 3:16,17 says: “All scripture is given by inspiration of Elohim, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of Elohim may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works”.

The Word of Elohim tells us our purpose and instructs us how to fulfill that purpose. The Bible gives us the means and the end. Elohim will help us and enable us to live lives that are pure before Him. Elohim likely will not just deliver purity to us in a sack for us to unwrap. We have to actually take what Elohim gives us and apply it to our hearts and to our lives. (9)

Biblical Question 6 “Who do you say I am?”

(Matthew 16:13-17) “ When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven”.

Caesarea Philippi is a district about 25 miles north of Galilee, at the base of Mt Hermon. It is different from the city of Caesarea built by Herod the Great on the Mediterranean coast. (2)

People then and even today see Yeshua the Christ in so many different ways. I was shocked (not anymore), to discover that a man who should be a brother in the assembly where I fellowship, declared that Yeshua is not Elohim the Son, but an angel who is there with the Father from the beginning. Sound like some New Age doctrine.

The truth is, only the Holy Ghost can reveal the real identity of Christ. So Yeshua said to Peter, “…..flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven”. Elohim the Father opened Peter’s eyes the fulness of those claims, and reveal to him who Yeshua really was. To put it another way, Elohim opened Peter’s heart to this deeper knowledge of Christ by faith.

Peter was not just expressing an academic opinion about the identity of Christ, his was a personal confession of faith, made possible by a divine-regenerated heart

This question from Yeshua, is one of the most important that a person will ever answer. For most people, He is a good teacher. For some He is a prophet. For others He is a legend. Peter’s answer, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living Elohim,” is the correct answer (Matthew 16:16). C. S. Lewis addresses the issue of the various understandings of who Yeshua is in his book Mere Christianity:

“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic—on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg—or else he would be the Devil of Hell.

You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” (7)

Biblical Question 7 “What shall I do then with Jesus?”

(Matthew 27:19-26) 19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him. 20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. 21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified. 23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified. 24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it. 25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children. 26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

Everyone of us must make a decision about Elohim in our lifetime. This was Pilate’s question to the crowd gathered at Yeshua’s’ trial. Their answer: “Crucify Him!” Their shout a few days earlier had been different: “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” (Matthew 21:9).

The Christ was betrayed by Judas and arrested by the Roman soldiers. He was then facing Pilate who thought he held Yeshua’s fate in his hands. Unbeknown to him, what Pilate really held in his hands was his own fate. As Pilate was sitting on the judgement seat with Yeshua standing nearby, he asked a question that should cause each of us to stop and think.

It is doubtful whether Pilate truly understood the magnitude of the question, nor did he understand that he was making a decision that would affect his soul for all eternity. (11)

It is amazing how unfulfilled expectations and a little peer pressure can change public opinion. In first-century Jerusalem, people who had an errant view of Yeshua and His mission rejected Him; so, today, people who come to the Christian faith with an errant understanding of who Christ is will eventually turn away.

We must make sure we accurately present who Yeshua is and what Christianity is all about when we share our faith.

Conclusion

Those seven questions are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the number of questions in the Bible. One reason for the vast number of questions in Scripture, is the Jews way of answering question with a question, it is a part of their culture. You can typically identify this trend in Jesus’s discourse, for example, the encounter with the rich young ruler in Luke 18: 18-27;

 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God. 20 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother. 21 And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up. 22 Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me. 23 And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.

Another example is recorded in Luke 20: where the spiritual leaders of the day was questioning His authority. “…..the chief priests and the scribes came upon him with the elders, And spake unto him, saying, Tell us, by what authority doest thou these things? or who is he that gave thee this authority? And he answered and said unto them, I will also ask you one thing; and answer me: The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men?…….

And just one final example in that same chapter of Luke 20: with the same religious leaders trying to trap Jesus…..

22 Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no? 23 But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, “Why tempt ye me?” It is just normal to here a Jew answering a question with another question. That is cleaver way to get out of a trap or difficult situation. 

Questions in the Bible are placed there by the author (Elohim) to keep us on our feet thinking, and reflecting where we stand spiritually, personally, relationally living a God-centered life.

5. Getresponse full review is the preferred marketing medium

According to both the DMA and Adobe, most people prefer to be contacted and receive offers from companies through email rather than other channels.

The results of these studies make perfect sense since well-designed email marketing campaigns are relevant and non-intrusive – emails wait in the inbox and subscribers decide when’s the right moment to open and read an email. And if they no longer want to receive the content, they can unsubscribe in just a couple of clicks.

Traditionally, digital marketing strategy is divided into paid, earned, and owned media. Email falls into the owned media category (unless we’re talking about sponsored mailing). It means that your business has full control over this online marketing channel.

In fact, over time, my email list becomes my greatest online marketing asset: a massive database of people who want to hear from my brand.

If you use professional email marketing services, your emails will reach almost everyone on your email list as opposed to e.g. social media, where you cannot control your organic reach. That’s why investing too much in social media following is often called building a house on rented land.

Review Getresponse Full Review Simplify Marketing Automation

Quoting from their very own webpage, “Marketing automation is a suite of powerful conditions, filters, and actions. You combine all of them to create workflows that reflect a subscriber journey or experience. When building a workflow, you can use one of our predesigned templates or build a workflow from scratch”.

GetResponse Marketing Automation starts with easy tools that enable me to build a scoring model to find my best leads and a tagging function that automatically remembers subscriber behaviors I want to encourage and follow up.

Getresponse full review provides a very sophisticated option for sequencing emails automatically. This is called ‘Marketing Automation,’ and is available on ‘Plus’ plans or higher.

This feature allows you to create automation workflows using a drag and drop editor — you basically set up an ‘automation flowchart’ that instructs Getresponse what to do if a user opens a particular offer, clicks on a certain link etc.

Automatically following up on prospects with nurturing messages to boost intent to purchase.

Automatically qualifying leads against preconfigured metrics and passing to sales without human interaction (this capability is only really relevant to B2B).

Using A Landing Page In Review Getresponse Full Review

A landing page is a tool that you can use to convert your visitors into subscribers and eventually into customers. Typically a landing page consists of key content, offers, and an easy point of sale for prospective clients to register for or purchase your goods and services.

Landing pages not only help to promote your business but can also help you build your list.

landing page is a standalone web page that has:

  • brief text promoting a single product, service, or a marketing event. It can include information about a lead magnet, e.g. a guide, report, or a video. You can share it with site visitors in exchange for their contact information.
  • contact form or call to action (CTA) button to encourage people to take advantage of the offer. In fact, turning site visitors to subscribers is the main goal of a landing page.

Landing pages are a perfect marketing tool because they can:

  • increase conversion rate by keeping the visitors’ focus on the form,
  • improve your SEO ranking with targeted and relevant content,
  • build your brand recognition and business credibility.

What can I do with GetResponse landing pages?

Getresponse offers something very useful in this regard that many of its competitors don’t: a landing page creator (and one that’s mobile-friendly too).

Not only can it be used to build squeeze pages, but you can test the conversion rate of these pages against each other in real time, and roll out the best performing one. This can a very positive effect on the number of leads you capture and improve the reach of your email campaign.

Similar products often require you to make use of a third-party landing page creating tool — like Unbounce or Instapage — to attain this sort of functionality, so the inclusion of the landing page feature is a really useful — and cost-saving — piece of functionality to have in your email marketing toolbox.

In the Review GetResponse full review landing page editor, you you can choose from 100+ customizable templates. We keep adding more designs to meet your marketing needs.

The drag-and-drop editor lets you create a landing page even if you don’t have programming skills. It makes it easy to add, edit, and remove elements such as text, images, buttons, or videos. It offers a quick way to add and embed a sign-up form, so you don’t need to build a separate one. It’s all in one place for your convenience.

Want to to create different versions of the same landing page to see which converts better? You can use the A/B testing feature to create up to 10 design variants displayed at the same URL. Want to optimize your landing page for mobile devices? You can go to the mobile workspace to preview and modify the mobile version of the page.

If you prefer to use your own design, you can use the HTML editor or design your landing page from scratch.

Third Party Integrations

GetResponse has a number of third party integrations. Some of the ones I am more familiar with are, the WordPress integration that allows you to create a page in the GetResponse landing page editor, then select a page in WordPress, assign your directory name, and then publish the page.

By integrating your landing page with WordPress, you can build webinar and promotion pages as well as use pop-ups to generate more conversations.

The company also integrates tightly with platforms like, Shopify, Magento, and PrestaShop, or an affordable hosting plan. When these apps talk to each other, you can get e-commerce data and quickly import it into GetResponse. You are able to do some fairly advanced audience segmentation when you are creating data like those.

Review GetResponse Full Review Cons of Using 

  • The drag and drop interfaces for creating landing pages and forms are a bit fiddly — they need improvement

    from a user experience point of view.

  • Although you can use the Facebook pixel with Getresponse’s landing page feature, you can’t do so in a GDPR compliant way.

  • Improvements could be made to how newsletter sign up forms work, so that users have the option to switch them on or off on mobile devices.

  • There’s a hard limit of 500 webinar attendees.

  • No phone support is provided (unless you’re on a “Max” plan).

  • Split testing functionality is limited to subject headers and content — it would be good if you could test using sender and send time as well.
  • Quite a lot of the integrations for Getresponse involve a third-party syncing tool like Zapier.

  • The website builder needs improvement to truly compete with more established solutions.

7 Principles of Healthy Living By God’s Design

god design 1

 Introduction

The Bible which is the accurate Word of God, speaks volume about our health and how to live healthy.

There are substantial undisputable data to show that God so designed us to experience and enjoy good health.

The Scripture is more than enough to guide us into good health, in fact, it’s “The Manual” for healthy living God’s way.

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth (3 John: 2).

We maintain good health through the working of the physical and spiritual immune system.

We boost our physical immunity by three basic methods, healthy eating, regular exercise and adequate rest and sleep.

We all want to apply the principles for maintaining good physical health through nutritious food, exercise, pure water, cut out junk foods, get plenty of sleep, healthy eating and loving relationships.

We need to have a better understanding of nutritious foods that boost immunity like citrus fruits, red bell peppers, broccoli, garlic, ginger, spinach, yogurt, almonds, sunflower seeds, turmeric, green tea, papaya, kiwi and others.

The same is true for all Christians to approach their spiritual health by keeping their spiritual immune systems in tip-top shape. Every believer in Jesus Christ should boost their immunity through prayer and fasting, reading, studying and meditating the scripture, cultivating pure thoughts, assemble and worship with other believers, develop and maintain good quality relationships, practice Christian service in giving, caring, and witnessing.

We need to strengthen our spiritual immune system so as to develop the ability to withstand, survive and overcome the intangible disease such as fear, anxiety, hatred, anger, bitterness, doubt, resentment, envy, unhealthy relationships, depression, unbeliefs, gossiping, complaining, and negativism.

Let us take a brief dive into some principles of healthy living according to God’s design.


Principle #1: Believe What God Says About Healthy Living

The first principle is to accept without questioning the Word of God. Believe the Bible as God talking to you face to face. In other words, it is your faith that will make all the difference in what you experience in your life.

Hear what the scripture says “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper” (2 Chronicles 20:20). Prosper comes from the Hebrew word ‘shalowm’, meaning safe, well, health, prosperity.

Everything boils down to our quality of belief, it must be pure from all unbeliefs, doubts, questions, or fear. Jesus told His disciples that it was because of their unbelief that prevent them from seeing desired results, (Matthew 17: 20).




Principle #2: Watch Out for Hidden Time Bombs

Hidden timebombs mean danger is ahead that can suddenly explode. The good news though, there are usually some warning signs both in the physical and spiritual realms.

Physical timebombs in your life could be early warning stages of your body heading toward chronic illness or disease: showing signs such as fatigue, brain fog, energy spikes followed by crashes, acid reflux, hormonal imbalance, constant need for antibiotics, or even premature aging.

Spiritual timebombs could be, you are indifferent about the church and the things of God. You have a gift of complaining and criticizing almost everything. You are on a missionary journey of fault finding, and rejoice when you see or hear about a wounded soldier on the battle field. Your Christian walk is compromised with questionable and double standard living.

 

Principle #3: Manage the Quality and Quantity of Your Food Intake

Proverbs 23: 1-2 says “When you sit down to eat with a ruler, Consider carefully what is before you;  And put a knife to your throat If you are a man given to appetite.

Even though it may be lawful for you to eat whatsoever is set before you; because every creature of God being good, if it is received with thanksgiving, and sanctified by the Word of God and prayer.

Notwithstanding, it is a piece of wisdom to make use of that which is most beneficial to the quality of your health, and offering less risk. You should remember to observe moderation in all, and not indulge to gluttony and drunkenness.

Whether you are sitting at the King’s table or sitting at your own dining table at home, same principle should apply. Be consciously careful to select your food wisely.

There is a saying that says,  “We become what we eat, or we are what we eat”. There are physical foods and spiritual foods, and we have to select our daily portion to maintain good health.

 

Principle #4: Exercise Regularly

1 Timothy 4: 7-8 says, “But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.  For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come”. The Apostle Paul is saying here that exercise is essential, more so spiritually, to healthy living.

There is a quote that says – “Those who do not find time for exercise will have to make time for illness.” Edward Stanley. Both exercises should be conducted daily, in order to get maximum benefits. The real substance is in the regularity and consistency of bodily and spiritual exercise.

 

Principle #5: Seek Proper Rest and Sleep

Our body was designed to rest and sleep. In so doing, the cells of the body get rest and repair themselves, to rejuvenate and recharge. Lack of rest and proper sleep lead to mental breakdown, sickness and premature aging. Most adults need 7 or more hours of good-quality night sleep on a regular basis.

Getting quality sleep is not only about total hours of sleep. It’s also important to get good-quality sleep so when the Spirit of God wake you up, and you feel well rested.

The Word of God tells us about the importance of enjoying good quality sleep: “When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet”. (Proverbs 3:24). “At this, I woke up and looked around. My sleep had been very sweet“.(Jeremiah 31:26)

“I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained me”.(Psalm 3:5). “It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep”. (Psalm 127:2).

 

Principle #6: God’s Design For Healthy Living

God’s design for good health is based on Faith, Obedience and Consistency. Faith and belief are one and the same to an extent. It is our belief that enhances our faith;

and as our faith grows, unbelief will diminish. Romans 10:17 says “Faith cometh by hearing and by hearing the Word of God“. So as we read, study and meditate the Scripture our health with improve.

Faith and obedience work hand in gloves. We have to believe the Word followed with obedience. Listen to the Word Of God, “……. If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee”. (Exodus 15:26).

Reverence for the Lord brings good health – “Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones”. (Proverbs 3: 7-8).

 

Principle #7: Thoughts Are Things – Examine Them Closely

When I say Thoughts Are Things, I am not about to gone down the “New Thought Movement” path. I am remaining in the undiluted Word of God that says, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect”.

Thoughts created and issued from our mind, but those thoughts are not created in vacuum, it’s a result of what we feed our minds on. Isaiah 26:3 says, “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you”.

We must therefore concentrate and think on the right things, according to Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things”.

Thoughts are things is not a cliché, it is reality. Our thought fashion and determine our life. There is an anonymous quote that says, “Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny”.

 

Conclusion

God health ultimately comes from God, through our faith, obedience and persistency. The Lord will keep us from all pestilence including Covid-19. No evil will come near your dwell, because He will command His angels in regard to you, to protect and defend and guard you in all your ways through our obedience and service. (Based on Psalm 91).

“The Lord will take away from you all sickness; and He will not subject you to any of the harmful diseases of Egypt which you have known, but He will impose them on all [those] who hate you”. (Deutoronomy 7:15).

We were all designed by the Creator to experience and enjoy good vibrant health all our life. Sickness comes because of the fall and continues by rebellion against God.

Yeshua came to bring salvation, which includes our health; by His stripes we are healed. God made us to be healthy and remain so. Remember this, we are healthy by design and sick by default.

The SiteGround TEAM

There is a wide range of hosting services online, I use SiteGround services because they are the leading game-changer in the hosting space — from easily accessible software solutions to arguably the number one customer support system I have ever experienced.




My Review SiteGround: I have been using SiteGround for the past 2 years, (at the time of writing this review), as a happy and satisfied customer. I am overly confident that if I get stuck with a challenge, live chat tech support is there 24/7 to get me up and running.

They have honestly never failed to solve my concerns. They are always willing, polite and incredibly helpful support staff I find delightful to deal with.

SiteGround is officially recommended by WordPress.org, Joomla and Drupal. They have grown to accumulate 800,000 plus domain names worldwide, with data centers across United States, Europe and even Asia in the short 13 years since they started out with only one employee back in 2004.

That is putting them among the youngest in the web hosting business today. That is certainly an impressive growth rate, therefore they must be doing something right to achieve such ascent faster than many of their older rivals. And speaking of speed, SiteGround has a reputation for how fast websites can load.

Custom-Built Customer Service: Chat and Ticketing Systems

Why is SiteGround so *hostfully* strong? Let me tell you, their customer service has been their claim to fame, without the shadow of a doubt.

I’m telling you, customers come to SiteGround for the support, only to be pleasantly surprised by the level of custom solutions built in to make the hosting experience a stress-free relationship.

SiteGround has created an in-house chat-room software. This allows you to select and give your own rating with thoroughly vetted customer service agents with whom you’ve worked previously. They have designed their own ticketing system too, which enable technical support representatives quickly and easily help customers in specific tasks.

Their entire business is now tied to their in-house software solutions for customer support.

All of their infrastructure, and their code beds are done internally. SiteGround has a well known reputation for up-time rates of 99.996% annually and 99.999% monthly. All SiteGround hosting service users benefit from their unique downtime prevention system, I cannot remember when my site has ever been down.

SiteGround has a one-of-a-kind server isolation system for their shared hosting service.

That system prevents vulnerable servers from taking down a whole network. They have replaced their Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting by building their own cloud container platform, featuring thousands of containers and top-of-the-line scalability and security. And security on the web is synonymous with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificates.

Review SiteGround Solid Security

The World Wide Web is obviously moving into the direction of making HTTPS the preferred, if not the compulsory, protocol. And these are just few of the reasons why this trend will continue to be massive in 2017 and onward: Google has officially announced that HTTPS will be a factor for search results standings.

SiteGround has made the transitions to HTTPS for their users easier than ever.

 

FAST WORDPRESS LAUNCH

Click-and-Install WordPress

SiteGround saves you the trouble of downloading, installing, and configuring WordPress manually by offering a simple click-and-install option. Their system takes care of everything right at the beginning so you can start customizing your WordPress site faster.

Launch a Beautiful and Functional Site

Once you install WordPress through their automated installer and you log into your site’s admin panel, you will be able to use their unique WordPress Starter. This tool allows you to choose from a selected collection of professional site designs and add key functionalities like contact forms, an online store, a portfolio, and more.

All the features you select are automatically installed on your site, turning the standard default WordPress installation into a beautiful and fully-functional website in minutes – no technical knowledge required!

What Are The Cons of Review SiteGround

When you compare SiteGround with other hosting providers is like comparing apples with oranges because plans generally come with various levels and features.

Having said that, there are certain functions and capacities you should look out for when comparing hosting providers: One is – Domains (how many websites you can run on your account), Secondly, Databases (how many software installs you can run), and thirdly Disk Space (how many files you can upload to your account).

One thing is for sure, with SiteGround, you are of course paying for top-notch quality. So if we are to focused on their raw price point for example, and not on overall value, we could say that they are a bit expensive than other high performing independent hosting companies.

Limitations of Their Plan
I have found their plan limitations to be some what of a disadvantage in and of themselves. Instead of limiting databases or domains, they limit disk space across all their shared plans.

Shared hosting servers sometimes experienced difficulties handling too many visitors coming to your site at the same time.

Say for example you get mentioned on Good Morning America. Therefore, it is the norm to go after the number of websites that are bringing in visitors, instead of the number of files uploaded on to the server.

I am confident SiteGround has persuasive arguments for putting a cap on what they control – and it could possibly make their service more reliable.

After all, to be fair, their setup can more than handle over 100k visitors if your website should get mentioned on a popular website as a one time activity, and they will not suspend your account.

Even if you should have something going viral and generate a lot of traffic.

And technically speaking, no host can really offer unlimited plans – there is usually some form of abuse caps detailed in the terms of service.

Siteground Review 2020
Siteground Review 2021

The Orientation of Developer
Target market, that is, starting with small business is usually the initial starting point for most web hosting companies, and then work themselves towards complementary markets of medium to large businesses.

Review SiteGround-CPanel

SiteGround however, possibly because of their solidly unmatched support system, they seems to position themselves towards the professional developer market, that is, developers creating websites for businesses.

That may not be a bad thing of itself – it can be a good feature if you are a developer – but to the general audience it is more difficult to appeal to them. The majority of SiteGround’s overall feel is simply straightforward, many of their features do not have much appeal or use for a general audience, especially when compared to many of their competitors.

I notice their top tier plan offers a WordPress staging area and GIT integration. While these are outstanding features, the average person creating a website do not use them.

SiteGround also does not offer the range of marketing bonuses that other hosting plans have. I use to think such bonuses were common features across the board, but at SiteGround it’s not.

Comparing SiteGround with Other Host Providers

SiteGround vs. GoDaddy

These are two trusted brands in the web hosting industry. Undeniably GoDaddy is by far the biggest brand and has better overall and short term pricing. However, SiteGround’s support and technology are much better than GoDaddy, even though GoDaddy has made improvement in this area since 2013.

Unless you have reasons to go with GoDaddy, you’ll get a much better product from SiteGround. They both present a wide range of options to get your site online. SiteGround is a genius at customer support, with their custom-made ticketing and chat systems.

GoDaddy has the resources and technology because they support more than 13 million customers.

Despite that fact, the world’s number one domain registrar gives customers a free domain for only a year, while SiteGround gives you a free domain name for a lifetime.

SiteGround vs. InMotion

Review SiteGround
Siteground Review 2021

High performance, solid security, top notch speed, ascent scale — some of the buzzwords to describe either of these hosting providers. Both known in the hosting community for superior support, SiteGround and InMotion are industry leaders when it comes to helping growing businesses scale upward.

Review SiteGround

They both have superb features, experienced support team and high performance. They offer competitive packages with powerful hardware, round-the-clock monitoring, and premier service.

However, InMotion’s has a better pricing overall, especially once you factor in upgrade fees. But remember, we might be comparing apples with oranges. InMotion also has a 90 day guarantee, on boarding is better, and smooth WordPress installs.

But think about this, not to be outdone, SiteGround has features like automatic staging, free SSLs and global data centers.

SiteGround vs. Bluehost

These are two fierce competitors in the WordPress hosting arena, both SiteGround and Bluehost offer services for shared hosting, virtual Private Server (VPS), and dedicated server customers. Bluehost is a well-known brands on the market.

They are ahead of SiteGround on price, and they have better “bonuses” and side upgrade. However, SiteGround is light-years ahead with performance and core hosting features, If performance matters more to you – then pay a bit extra for SiteGround.

SiteGround WordPress plugin SG Optimizer is a tool that enhances the performance level. The PHP 7 brings considerable performance boost that make it easier for all the WordPress customers to change their PHP version to PHP 7. They have updated their WordPress plugin SG Optimizer for you to move to PHP 7 with a click!

SiteGround vs. HostGator

These two are best known for offering good web hosting with great features for very affordable prices.

Although they both seem to have offer it all, you can identify areas they have specialized in different hosting niches.

SiteGround Affiliate Programme

HostGator is better known for shared hosting, and SiteGround’s well developed hardware and higher cost make them better suited for the more experienced site owners.

SiteGround Payment Plan

However, SiteGround has better support and performance. So again, choosing between them, I would go with SiteGround for great value & better performance.

Summary

There must be a reason SiteGround Hosting is one of the fastest growing independent hosting companies.

They have a solid product and a great support system. SiteGround is among the highest rated and most popular hosting provider on the web in general and in WordPress community in particular.

Their headquarter is in Bulgaria which allows them to be much more globally oriented than many US companies. While at the same time offering a truly world-class product.

 Berserkers And The Coming Eschatological Judgment Of God

Are you familiar with the term Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP)? It’s the new name for Unidentified Flying Object (UFO). SkyWatch TV recently published the fantastical observation of UFO Berserkers. Originally, Berserkers were legendary Norse warriors who fought with a notorious, trance-like fury, a distinction that subsequently inspired the English word “berserk.”

While employed with creative license, the Berserker name was recently enlisted by writer Fred Saberhagen for a series of science-fiction short stories and novels. In his apocalyptic tales, the Berserkers are self-replicating flying machines sent to destroy all life on Earth.

We think it not by chance that these biomechanical entities find functional parallels with the demonic locust hordes predicted in biblical prophecy (Joel 2 c.f. Revelation 9). We are not the first to suggest a connection between these insectoid instruments of divine judgment and the UFO phenomenon.

In a posthumously released textbook, The Kingdom of the Occult, by Dr. Walter Martin, a portion of his 1970s UFO presentation is transcribed. Although not widely known, he not only took the UFO phenomenon seriously, but he was also an eyewitness to a flying saucer.

 In fact, he blew up a photograph of the craft he witnessed as a display supporting his lecture. Like ourselves, Martin was inclined toward the extradimensional hypothesis rather than space aliens.

He likewise ventured that UFOs might be instrumental in Jesus’ description of the events prior to His return: “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” (Luke 21:26, underline added). “Things which are coming on the earth” implies that they themselves are not of the Earth; rather, they are, by definition, extraterrestrial………..Continue reading

Pray For The Health Of The Nation

HEALTHY

Prayer For Healing Of The Nation

“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.” (3 John 1:2)

Heavenly Father, in the Almighty Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth,  we celebrate the amazing truth that You chose to live in us and that our body is Your temple.

We praise, worship and adore you. Please forgive us when we abuse this temple. Forgive us when we fail to spend time in Your Word and at Your feet in prayer.

We need Your strength and power to practice Godly discipline. We want to become healthy in every area of our life – for our good and for Your glory.

Father, You remind us throughout Scripture that You are faithful to Your people.  Jeremiah 33:6 says, “Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.”

So often, as in the Old Testament, we rebel, neglect to care for ourselves as You do, and end up tired and sick. But Father You are faithful to enwrap us in Your healing love each time we turn back to You.

We thank you for the provision of our body and the variety of foods that fuels them. Forgive us for dishonoring you, at times, by not taking care of this body.  

Forgive us also for making certain foods an idol.  May we remember that our body is your dwelling place, and treat them accordingly.  Help us to make better choices as we eat, and as we feed our friends and family.

Lord, your Word speaks promises of healing and restoration and we thank you for the miracles you still perform today. Today we claim those promises over our lives. We believe in the healing power of faith and prayer and we ask you to begin your mighty work in the life of this nation.

Please reach down and surround the people of Jamaica and all others nations with supernatural peace and strength and give us the faith to believe that all things are possible with you. Protect us from Satan’s lies and discouragement and let our miraculous healing begin

We claim your promise according to Exodus 23:25 “And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee”.

It is your will that we prosper and be in good health according 3 John 1:2 “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth”.

We speak to every broken heart to be healed according to Psalm 147:3 “He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds”. And those hearts begin to rejoice according to Proverbs 17:22 “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones”.

We speak to every spirit that is burdened to find hope, deliverance and salvation in God: “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, [who is] the health of my countenance, and my God”. Psalm 42:11; 43: 5. 

We speak to every sickness that controls the lives of many in this nation to dry up in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth who said in Matthew 10: 8 “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give”.

We praise and glorify you as King of Kings and Lord of Lords because of who you are and whose we are: “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s” 1 Corinthians 6: 19-20.

May we continue to make peace with the words of our mouth, because soft answer turneth away wrath, and that is good for our health according to Proverbs 16: 24 “Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Lord we thank you for the assurance of your Word  that command us to worship you and do what is good: “Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones”. Proverbs 3: 7-8.

We call forth health to invade this nation, in the physical, spiritual, emotional, mental, and other areas that need the healing light of God to shine: “Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward”. Isaiah 58:8.

We call forth the spirit of every healthcare worker in this nation to come into the knowledge of the one who keep us in good health: From the Minister of Health, and those in that ministry; every doctor and nurse, every physical, occupational and speech therapist; every laboratory and X-Ray lab technician.

We call forth the spirit of every Pharmacist to come to the knowledge that healing comes from God. Every dietitian who provides nutritional information to know that good health come from God in Jesus name.

Thank you Lord for hearing and answering our prayers, because we pray in the all powerful and everlasting power of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen, so let it be.

Missing Part From Astonishing 80 Years Harvard Study On Boys

The Missing Part From Astonishing 80 Years Harvard Study On Teenage Boys

Do you want to improve your success in life and business? The Harvard researchers seem to have the answer in an almost 80-year-old studying the lives of 724 men from their teenage years.

As a result of a very detailed and intensive effort, the researchers concluded that close relationships are what make men happy, and that social ties shield people from life challenges while improving mental and physical health.

The revelation according to Dr Robert Waldinger, a psychiatrist and professor at Harvard Medical School, “Taking care of your body is important, but tending to your relationships is a form of self-care too”.

Waldinger said in a “TED Talk” released in 2015, that “good relationships keep us happier and healthier.”




The ongoing Harvard study is believed to be one of the world’s longest studies of adult life, having started in 1938 during the Great Depression.

In the past 80 years, the researchers tracked the lives of 724 men, following up with each one on an annual basis to ask about their work, home lives and health.

The young men were divided into two groups. The first group were sophomores at Harvard College while the second was a group of boys from Boston’s poorest neighborhoods. They were investigated from the time they were teenagers all the way into old age to determine what keeps men healthy and happy.

Each year the researchers pay personal home visits and asked about their work, their lives, their health, without knowing how their stories were going to pan out. It turns out that flourishing in life is a function of close ties with family, friends, and community. It had nothing to do with fame, wealth, social class, IQ, genes, or any of the often celebrated variables.

This research is extraordinary in many way, because they not only received questionnaires, according to Dr Waldinger, but they were also interviewed in their homes, provided their medical records from their doctors, got their blood drawn, even their brains scanned and let the researchers talk to their children.

After these many years of gaining tens of thousands of pages of research data based on these participants, Dr Waldinger the fourth director of the study said, the clearest message from the study is that “good relationships keep us happier and healthier.”

These are the three important lessons to take away from the study about relationships.

Social Connections Are Good For Us; Loneliness Can Kill.

Dr Waldinger said social connections made people happier and physically healthier, which as a result, make them live longer too. He calls loneliness a toxic environment for anyone to live in. He points out that people can even feel lonely in a crowd of people or in their marriage.

To quote Waldinger: “People who are more isolated than they want to be from others find that they are less happy, their health declines earlier in midlife, their brain functioning declines sooner and they live shorter lives than people who are not lonely. And the sad fact is that at any given time, more than one in five Americans will report that they’re lonely.”

Quality Should Always Be Selected Over Quantity In A Relationship.

It is the quality of our relationships that really matters, because you can be lonely in your marriage or even in a crowd” says Dr. Waldinger.  He continues, and I quote: “It’s not the number of friends you have; it’s the quality of your close relationships that matters.”

Even with couples who nag each other, it was shown that the ability to count on one another contributed tremendously to their sense of stability and well-being.

In a similar way a parent or teacher may have warned you,  when it comes to friends, it’s not about the number of friends you have, but “it’s the quality of your close relationships that really matters.”

You should spend time and effort to make sure your relationships are healthy, because your willingness to commit to individuals can be devastating in random selections.

Instead of focusing on the quantity, it’s vital to focus on the quality of our friendships.

Living in the midst of constant conflict will eventually affects our health. High-conflict marriages, for instance, affect the health of those individuals negatively, perhaps more than getting a divorce. And living in the midst of warm, wholehearted relationships is protective and healthier.

This is what Waldinger and his team discovered: “When we gathered together everything we knew about them at age fifty, it wasn’t their middle-age cholesterol levels that predicted how they were going to grow old, it was how satisfied they were in their relationships. The people who were the most satisfied in their relationships at age fifty were the healthiest at age eighty.”

80 year-old men and women who were happily partnered reported that on the days when they had more physical pain, their mood remained just as happy. On the other hand, those in unhappy relationships had their physical pain magnified by being in more emotional pain.

Because Good Relationships Protect Our Body, The Brain Function Better

The study found that being attached to a good relationship in your 80s is protective. Such couples had sharper memories; while those who were in unpredictable and unreliable relationships where they couldn’t really count on the other person experienced gradual memory decline.

Waldinger explained that in addition to positively affecting your physical and emotional health, good relationships can empower your memory.

People who are in relationships where they feel they can count on their partner in times of need actually have a sharper, longer-lasting ability to remember things.

It’s important to note, it’s not that the researchers found that people in good relationships were without faults and weaknesses, or had to be easygoing all the time.

If you want to be happier and have stronger, positive relationships, Waldinger recommended, “replace screen time with people time,” “livening up a stale relationship by doing something new together, such as long walks or date nights, or reaching out to that family member who you haven’t spoken to in years.”

Waldinger said arguments didn’t affect the memories. They didn’t matter as long as those 80-year-old couples knew they could count on the other when the going got tough. “The good life,” Waldinger concluded, “is built with good relationships.”

“Relationships are messy and they’re complicated and the hard work of tending to family and friends, it’s not sexy or glamorous,” he said. “It’s also lifelong. It never ends.”

The Missing Part Of A Happy And Healthy Relationship

Dr Gary Chapman who wrote in his bestselling book; “The 5 Love Languages“, how to improve your relationship one language at a time. These five love languages are

  • Words of Affirmation which uses words to affirm each other.
  • Acts of Service for people whose action speak louder than words.
  • Receiving Gifts for people who feel most loved by getting gifts.
  • Quality Time for individuals who feel loved by getting your undivided attention.
  • Physical Touch is for those value nothing more highly than appropriate touch

The finding from that famous research at the Harvard Study of Adult Development, would naturally follow that those five love languages would in part or in totally enhance the lives of those couples.

Take physical touch for example, every normal healthy human being needs that therapy. As Botsio said in the Freedom Come Rain news paper, no amount of elbow-bumps can replace a physical hug. The fact is that physical touch is one of those fundamental needs of mankind, no matter what your other Love Languages may be.

The truth be told, all of us started out with the need for that love language of touch, in fact, scientists have discovered that babies who are hugged and kissed, developed more balanced emotional healthy lives than those who were deprived of  frequent physical touch during their early years.

Physical touch is crucial, however, spiritual touch is paramount. Having a closer relationship with your creator is second to none. Communion with God is a love relationship that is real and personal.

When we get closer with Yeshua, He fills our love tanks bypassing all the peculiar Love Languages we possess if He chooses.  Jehovah is the creator of Love, He is the real love, so He knows how to fill our Love tanks effortlessly, because that is what He is, Love.

There is but one condition apply; we need to choose to participate in His Love in this personal relationship, so we can live in His reality.

Maintaining Healthy Relationship During The Pandemic

Real question, how do those whose primary Love Language is physical touch cope in this pandemic? Considering that we are being starved of our human Love binding source, the fuel that fills our Love tank. We are being deprived of it, but there are other ways to cope.

This is the best time to get into a relationship with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost, the God of The Bible, the God of Israel.

God gave to Dr Gary Chapman the “Five Love Languages” as a description of how human beings give and receive Love. The Triune God is bigger than that formula, He will find ways to express Love to each of us the way He created us as unique beings to receive it.

This pandemic can work for our good, by pushing us to having our very own powerful Love tank filled with God through the reading of and obeying His Word.

Here is where I am choosing to live and experience healthy happy  and longer life by loving Yeshua and walking in obedience.

The Creator God promised us long life on Earth if we honor and respect our parents (Ephesians 6: 2-3).

His commandments are instructions to guide us to a good life on Earth. So if you want to live a long life, follow them with all your heart (Mark 12: 29-31).

Wisdom is the ability to discern what’s right from what’s wrong. If you are wise enough, you will surely refrain from making hasty decisions that will bring your life in trouble. Hence, get knowledge and wisdom to live longer on Earth. Choose to eat the right food, do exercise, meditate, and relax (Proverbs 3: 13-16; 9:11).

Choose to be happy and healthy, not sickly. We are healthy by God’s design, and we are sick by our own default.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mount Hermon Week 52

We dig deeper into the fifth trumpet judgment this week to explore the links between the locust-like creatures that fly out of the abyss and older stories from the Near East like the Epic of Gilgamesh and Inanna’s Descent to the Netherworld.

Then we compare the creatures from the bottomless pit to the apkallu of Mesopotamia, the Watchers of the Bible, and the Titans of Greek mythology, and conclude that they are one and the same.

Fallen Angel

With Revelation 9, we get into the real action that leads up to Armageddon. An angel fallen to Earth was given the key to the abyss, releasing the monstrous things that have been confined in the bottomless pit.

Who is that angel? Is he loyal to God? And what are those locust-like things? We discuss what we know from the Bible and compare that information with what the people of the ancient world believed about the old gods—the Titans, Watchers, and Mesopotamian apkallu.

Wormwood-2-Week-50

The order of the first three trumpet judgments (hail and fire, a mountain hitting the sea, and Wormwood) roughly follow the sequence of the events of the Exodus—a plague of hail and fire, the parting of the sea, and the bitter waters at Marah.

We discuss the significance of the pattern, and consider whether President Trump’s new Space Force might be connected to the potentially hazardous asteroid Apophis that will make a near pass of Earth on April 13, 2029.

Salvation

(This eternal salvation information is adopted from two of my favorite online prophecy update pastors, namely: JD Farag from The Calvary Chapel in Kaneohe Oahu;  and Charlie Garrett from The Superior Word in Sarasota in Florida)

In the Bible, we’re taught that we are created. God created us to have a relationship with Him, but Adam, our first father disobeyed God’s law. Because he did, we inherited his sin. Now there is a divide between God and man.

God                                  /////// X ///////                                 Man

The Bible teaches that God is perfectly righteous and therefore, like a judge, he must convict those who are guilty of breaking His laws. Imagine looking at a person through a pane of glass. If the glass has mud all over it, you don’t see the beauty of that person, you see the mud. This is what it’s like when God looks at us. He sees our sins and because He is perfectly holy, he cannot accept us this way. Instead, he must judge our sins.

However, Jesus came and lived the perfect life that Adam didn’t. He repaired the divide. It is by faith in what God has done, through Jesus Christ – the God/Man – that we are restored to a right relationship with God. Jesus took all the sin and judgment that each of us deserves and was crucified on a cross. In that moment he became our sin and our guilt.

 

cross 1

Now when we put our faith in Jesus Christ, God no longer sees our sin. Instead He sees Christ’s perfect obedience and righteousness. God has done all the work necessary for man to again live in His presence. The cross is the bridge that made this possible. It was at the greatest cost of all that man has been bought back from sin and death to eternal life through Jesus.

There is none righteous, no, not one; Romans 3:10

The Bible tells us that because we have a sin nature, we are unrighteous in God’s sight.

– Don’t look to your own goodness to save you.

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Romans 3:23 

We all have sin in our hearts – it’s our very nature to sin. We all were born with sin and without Jesus we are under the power of sin’s control.

– Admit that you are a sinner.

 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

Sin results in death and we all face physical death, the result of sin.  But worse is our spiritually dead condition that has alienated us from God. Unless we’re reborn, it will last for all eternity.  The Bible clearly teaches there is a place called the Lake of Fire where lost people will be destroyed.   It’s the place where people who are spiritually dead will remain.

– Understand that you deserve death for your sin.

However, salvation is a gift from God to you!  You can’t earn this gift; instead you must reach out and receive it.

– Ask God to forgive you and save you.

 

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

When Jesus died on the cross He paid the penalty for our sin – all our sin. He bought us out of slavery to sin and death! The only requirement on our part is that we believe in Him and what He has done for us, understanding that we are given new life through Him, and that He is our life.  He did all this because He loved us and gave Himself for us!

– Accept the gift!  His love alone saves you — not religion, church membership, or family heritage.  God loves you, and the gift is waiting!

 

For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” Romans 10:13

Do it today! Make it known that you are standing for Christ and the Gospel.

– Call out to God in the name of Jesus!

 

that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9

The term “justification” as used in the Bible is a legal term. When you call on Jesus, you stand righteous in God’s eyes. You can never stand condemned again because Christ’s perfect righteousness has now been given to you. Every sin you have ever committed or ever will commit is now covered by the precious blood of the spotless Lamb of God.

– You know God is knocking on your heart’s door, so ask Him to come into your heart. Believe in your heart and confess it with your mouth!

To understand a little of what Jesus Christ suffered, take time to read Isaiah 52:13 through 53:12. Isaiah is the 23rd book of the Bible. It was written 700 years before Jesus Christ came and foretold His mission to save us.

See, my servant will act wisely;
he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.

Just as there were many who were appalled at him—
his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man
and his form marred beyond human likeness—

so will he sprinkle many nations,
and kings will shut their mouths because of him.
For what they were not told, they will see,
and what they have not heard, they will understand.

Who has believed our message
and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?

He grew up before him like a tender shoot,
and like a root out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.

He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering.
Like one from whom men hide their faces
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Surely he took up our infirmities
and carried our sorrows,
yet we considered him stricken by God,
smitten by him, and afflicted.

But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.

We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before her shearers is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.

By oppression and judgment he was taken away.
And who can speak of his descendants?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
for the transgression of my people he was stricken.

He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence,
nor was any deceit in his mouth.

Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
and though the LORD makes his life a guilt offering,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.

After the suffering of his soul,
he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities.

Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
because he poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.

If you’ve never committed your life, soul, and eternal destiny to Jesus Christ then do it now! Turn to God through Jesus and He will give you a new heart and a new direction which will be your peace.

“God, I know I’m a sinner, I’m lost, and I need to be saved.  I know I can’t save myself, so right now, once and for all, I trust You to save me.  Come into my heart, forgive my sin, and make me Your child.  I give You my life.  I will live for You as You give me strength.”

If you took the time to accept Jesus, you may now shout “Whoo Hoo – I’m saved by the precious blood of the Lamb!” I rejoice with you and I’ll see you in His presence some glorious day…

Thank You

 

Very Important To Your Health And Overall Success


Read To The End 

And Read As Many Times As Necessary

          ——————————————————————–

This is not some B.S. hype.

 

This will help make your life easier, and it’ll help you make more life changes faster!

 

OK, here’s the deal…

 

This is supposed to be a “thank you page” but typically those suck, so I figured I’d just give you a quick jump start guide to  A Healthy Robust Start To Bolster Immunity


Living a healthy lifestyle has been my passion and growth for over the last three decades.

 

Knowing how to succeed living a healthy life is very important to your consistency, discipline and determination.

 

This process is not half as difficult as it may sound to some people, only those who are forced and have no love nor desire to live a healthy life will find this lifestyle burdensome.

 

In many ways adapting a healthy lifestyle is the perfect way to experience life in its fulness.

 

You don’t have to create a different way of life, for the most part, you just need to make minor adjustments to what you are currently doing now.

 

Sounds good, right?

 

It sounds good because it is good. It can be a wonderful way to live the abundant life.

 

But the fact remains that some 93% (or more) of the world population never enjoy really good health, and very few of the 7% who do succeed robust health has a full life of consistent holistic health.

 

I believe this problem can be solved for the majority!

 

I want you to know that it is not too late for you. You have not missed the train at all.

You can begin today and find success as a successful lifestyle enthusiast if you consistently work at it and use simple and proven methods that I am using.

Today I’m giving you NINE key steps to a successful healthy life that I learnt from the past three decades.

I use each one of these disciplinary principles and share them freely with you in hopes they help you too as you apply them in your life.

Remember, every one of us were in the same boat at one time.

Where we end up depends on our choices, consistencies and compliance with proven alternatives that work.

You do not have to be an ‘expert’ to follow these methods.

You just have to want to change your mind and the way you think about healthy choices.

Ready?


       Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #1 – Eat More Foods Reaped     From  The Plant, And Less of Those Manufactured In The Plant

The hot topic all over the world today is bolstering immunity

Our eating habits and style is the best place to begin this important journey of lifestyle changes and strengthening your immunity. We must focus on eating raw organic and naturally grown foods

We should also understand and apply the correct portion of dieting each day.

The following represent the right portion of healthy dieting:

  1. 50% Green nutrients.
  2. 35% Yellow nutrients.
  3. 15% Red nutrients

We need to consume more foods that heal our cells.

Healing foods should be eaten raw in their natural state. The group of foods that heal include fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains, peas, and beans.

Healing foods that are cooked become neutral, they neither heal nor harm the cells of the body.

There’s a lot that people can do in regards to bolstering their immunity, and probably the first place to start is just with some basic nutrition.

One of the best aspects that you can do is adding lemons, limes and pineapples to your diet. Now this is not lemon and lime juice out of a bottle.

Those are pasteurized, it is not the same as the real fruits.

They are definitely not the same, and so whenever you take a lemon or lime, and I would certainly encourage organic, because it does afford a certain level of protection.

This first point of correct dieting is so important, so foundational, that if you get this first step right you will see results faster even if you bobble the others.

Take time to get point #1 in the bag,  because this is where 93% of individuals fails to do it right.

   Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #2 – Drink More Purified Clean Water Daily

Drinking more water is one of the simplest habits many people are missing. Most of us do not drink enough water every day, which is necessary for our bodies to work properly.

Water is absolutely essential for carrying out our bodily functions, removing waste, and transporting nutrients and oxygen throughout our bodies.

The lymphatic system carries five times more liquid than blood in the circulatory system.

Since water is expelled every day through urination, bowel movements, perspiration and breathing, we need to replenish the amount of water in our bodies constantly and consistently.

The amount of water we need depends on a variety of factors, but generally an average adult needs two to three liters a day.

A good way to tell if you are getting enough water is by your urine—which should be either colorless or pale yellow.

   Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #3 – Cultivate Daily Exercise

Now, it doesn’t necessarily have to be just what we call “exercise“. I’m talking activity, that could be mowing your lawn, it could be playing with your kids, it could go for a bike ride, it could be dancing, it could be singing, it could be any number of things that’s interesting.

Because I think a lot of people when you say exercise, they immediately think the gym, guys in tights doing aerobics or lifting weights.

But I’m suggesting this could be anything that you actually enjoy doing.

That isn’t just monotonous in nature, that could be you riding a bike outside or playing with the kids.  

I would certainly suggest that if there’s something that you have fun doing, there’s something you have enjoyed doing, promote that. It’s a good thing, those produce all kinds of biochemical, hormonal biophysical responses that are anti-aging.

That protect your immunity, that protects your bones and your joints and make you happier during the day, and it could be anything.

Our bodies really were meant to be used.

Yes, as one holistic doctors said, when you just sit around all day, your body starts to think you’re dying.

Get active in spirit, soul and body

     Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #4 – Practice Good Quality Sleep                                             Nightly

Sleeping, and I can’t even say how this is so important. It’s more important than food, than water, and we don’t think that way. But you can go exactly three days without sleeping and you’ll find out what matters most.

You know you can go that period without food, but you can’t go without sleep.

It’s when everybody shuts down, two-thirds of the body shuts down itself.

I’m generalizing here, but that’s when a third of the body goes to work, when the flushing happens, that’s when the cleansing happens, that’s when the repair happens, that’s when the immunity happens.

Your memories are made at night.

I mean when you’re asleep, so many of the vital functions, the anti-aging functions and the health functions, happen during sleep, and that’s why it’s so important to make sure you get quality sleep to bolster your immune system.

Again this is so important, that’s when detox mostly happen, when inflammation mostly happens.

It’s just so many layers, but you have to get great sleep to hit those maximum benefits.

 

Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #5 —  Engage In Deep Breathing Daily

In every human being is what they call the vagus nerve, and it’s a nerve that runs from the back of the neck all the way down, pretty much through every organ.

It goes through your lungs, your gall bladder, liver, kidneys, and it’s because it both picks up and distributes information to those organs.

So every time you take a deep breath, and you don’t have to be a master breather.  I’m literally talking about just a deep breath into the diaphragm and then all the way out and then another one, deep into the diaphragm.

What happens is, that sends a signal up the vagus nerve to the brain to calm down, so that’s why we get this feeling, and it’s not really a feeling it’s biochemistry.

You could do it right now, somebody’s like, hey step back, take a deep breath and calm down, which we all know, it’s universal.

Right now we can actually see the signal go up and down the body and it tells these organs and glands to relax. 

So it’s definitely a good habit to develop and breathe deep whenever you can.

Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #6  —  The Medicine Of Laughter

One healthy habit is that of laughter, yes laughter really is a medicine! It really is. 

We secrete and release useful substances whenever we laugh.

And so if you find yourself being so stressed out, and you just can’t get out of that place, then take timeout, a little escape moment.

Go search for something that you find funny to watch, some kids play, go do something to that effect and see if you can find some of the places in your life that make you happy and want to laugh.

It will help break that mental cycle of being trapped in this kind of stress oriented place which with so many of us live in.

Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #7 — Prevent And Reduce Stress  

Stress is part of being human, and it can help motivate you to get things done.

But if not manage, it can easily drops immunity faster than any other thing. For a thousand reasons, it’s like whenever we get stressed the body can’t interpret stressors.

It really doesn’t know much of a difference between, I can’t pay my bills or if I’m being killed by a bear.

So the body shuts down memory.

You don’t need to fight a cold like you need to fight a bear, like it’s telling you, and burning through your B6 reserves. It’s like thousands of things are taking place when you are stressed.

It’s telling you, you don’t need to digest food, you don’t need to eliminate waste.

Stress shuts down everything concerning immunity.

So with that in mind the first thing I would say is, mindfulness, be aware. If you find yourself being stressed, realize, oh, I’m getting stressed!

I need to step back and just take a moment, and realize that my legs are not on fire.

I’m not literally in dire jeopardy, so that right there does wonderful things for helping us reset our mind, and not put you in a kind of worry and anxiety, which suppress our immunity through that mechanism.

Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #8 — Do Best Form Of Meditation

The word “meditation” has developed some what of a bad reputation in certain Christian circles. And the worst part about it is, some Christians believe in and embrace Transcendental Meditation as a good thing to do.

I simply want to reclaim the term without going too deep, as one of the essential spiritual disciplines for all believers.

I would like to make three fundamental points:

Meditation begins, but by no means ends, with thinking on Scripture, the Word of Yahweh.

Meditation therefore means, being completely attentive to Yahweh, and….

Meditation on Scripture is essential to Christian living.

This is one way to “keep our eyes on the things above where Christ is” (Col. 3:1). It is an active, present, and continuous engagement of the mind with God (Yahweh).

Our mind has to be renewed (Rom. 12:1-2) as part of the process by which the word of God can penetrates our soul and spirit with the Truth.

Christian meditation combines our soul, mind and heart.

Our soul reflecting upon what our mind have ingested and our heart rejoicing in what our soul have grasped. We have truly meditated when we slowly read, prayerfully imbibe and humbly rely upon what God has revealed to us.

All of this, of course, in total dependence on the internal, energizing work of the Holy Spirit.

 

Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #9  —  The Health Benefits Of Fasting

The ninth healthy lifestyle key is fasting, which we think is becoming the absolute nutrition.

By giving the body a metabolic break, where it’s not constantly trying to digest food, allows it to turn its energy towards other things which are healing, and cleaning up the body. 

And there’s a whole lot of data, and hopefully we can do a program to really look into more depth about the topic of fasting.

But suffice it to say that to refrain from eating and drinking, is an act of worship that is good for your spirit, soul and body.

It brings a new sense of satisfaction.

When you complete your fasting, you feel renewed and full of energy. You also detox your body and mind, with a new desire, a new praise and a sensitivity to God’s voice.

You’ll find that the absence of food was small in comparison to what you gained.

We’re just giving you an overview about the kind of simple things what you could do today, in order to boost your immunity right now to fight coronavirus.

These are the daily practices that would keep us from being stressed.

When we do this, we really absolve ourselves of so much of the worry, fear and anxiety.  I mean we can, absolve ourselves of everything. This is what lets us know we did the work that we can on our end.

What you are seeing, hearing, experiencing at any moment is changing not only your mood, but how your nervous, endocrine, and immune systems are all working.

Last but not least…

(Episode 001) Everything Was Created By Him and For Him

Today we are going to read the first three chapters of Genesis, Bereshit, the book of beginnings, in the beginning.

If it is at all possible, I invite you to get your Bible and follow along with me. And remember you can download the lesson on your personal device and listen at your convenience.

So let’s begin today’s reading of the Word of God as written in Genesis Chapter one:

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Word Of God

The Bible known also as the Scripture is accepted by Christians and in part by Jews as the inherent, infallible, and inspired Word of God. Therefore, the path I will trod through this podcast is the Judeo-Christian worldview
