ever so relentlessly

The 5th Proverb this morning was so piercing and yet sweet.
wisdom is crying again. "drink from your own water! why should your springs run in public places?"
are the sources of my life found in common place, thoughts originated in the flesh, in something as good as human rationality, or natural morality... the discernment of right or wrong has never brought forth Life.
can the dreams i have for my life be found on a computer screen or in a fantasy book? what a waste of goodness! such goodness He has for those who walk uprightly, He multiplies and makes blossom, He enriches and adds no sorrow, He encourages the weary and enpowers with divinity.
The promise of a kiss from God bountifully suffices every yearning the human heart may feel.
Oh the carefulness of His gentle, gentle love, the faithfulness of His commitment to our relationship, the determined perseverance to relentlessly draw me back to the Springs of my life.

Urgent Call to Prayer: Signs of the Times
It is critical that the church in America understands the times and what needs to be done now. The natural things speak of the invisible. Natural happenings on the earth are revealing something that is going on in the spiritual realm. There is a great spiritual conflict with a rising tide of Islamic boldness being manifested. Several happenings are converging this week. First of all, our President has recently proclaimed, honored, encouraged the Muslim holy days of prayer and fasting called Ramadan. He was very silent on the National Day of Prayer but very vocal on the support of Ramadan. Interestingly at the same time a major Christian leader of the Emergent Church called for forty days of fasting and prayer in the same Ramadan period with the goal that the church will better understand our Muslim friends. We are all for understanding but we must have spiritual discernment as to the spiritual dark powers that are being invoked into our nation.
Cause for Concern
At the same time, on the 25th of September, Muslims are calling for a Muslim Day of Prayer in Washington DC ( They are calling for 50,000 Muslims to gather and pray on the DC Mall. This is the exact word of one of the Sheikhs who is leading this historic gathering, “Muslims should march on the White House. We are going to the White House so that Islam will be victorious, Allah willing, and the White House will become into a Muslim house.” These are not empty words. They speak of a dark spiritual intent and a coming day of great trouble to America.
A Divine Moment
Now one of these events is enough to awaken us to this significant throbbing moment, but when they all converge it becomes a massive spiritual alarm that must be responded to by the praying Church. However, I believe in this moment of divine providence God has raised up on the stage of history a little “Esther” that if we pray and fast for her she could be a major voice to expose the dark under-belly of Islam and radiate a bright hope for a day of salvation for Muslims in America.
On Monday, Rifqa Bary, a young 17-year-old woman, will be in the headlines of US news. Four years ago, while living in a very devout and radical Muslim home, Rifqa met Jesus in a powerful way as her savior. She hid her conversion, began praying secretly, and began hiding her bible from her parents. Then, on Facebook, her love for Jesus was exposed to the radical Muslim community in Ohio. Rifqa’s father demanded that she renounce Jesus or he would kill her as is commanded by the Koran. As a radiant believer in Jesus she refused to renounce her Lord and fled to Orlando where she was taken in and cared for by a Christian Church and family. Now, the father is appealing to the courts to bring her back under his custody. Major television networks have already covered her story. How must the Church of America respond in this moment for our sister who is a part of the Body of Christ?
A Major Sign
This convergence, I believe, is urgently summoning us in the midst of the rising tide of Islamic influence in America to recognize that our God is above every god and that if we return to Him with all of our hearts and call upon Him with fasting and prayer then God could use what the enemy meant for evil to bring about a great day of salvation for Muslims in America, of which Rifqa is but a major sign.
Here is The Call
First of all, we cannot be passive as a Church to let these kinds of developments go on without being challenged in the spirit. Our fight is not against Muslims, it is against principalities, powers, and forces of darkness. We are calling the Church of America at the end of Ramadan, from September 21st through 25th, to five days of concerted prayer. On Monday, we must pray that God would grant supernatural wisdom to the courts so that the testimony of Jesus would be proclaimed and that the best situation for Rifqa and her family would take place. We must pray for Rifqa to be bold in proclaiming Jesus that even thousands of Muslims would hear and be awakened to the love of Christ. She has already said that this is not about her but about many Muslims coming to Jesus. We must pray for her lawyers who are being bullied, threatened, and challenged on every side. On Friday, September 25th, the Muslim Day of Prayer, we are calling the Church of America to fast and pray that Muslims would be moved by the Holy Spirit, convicted by the testimony of Christ, and even be visited by Jesus in dreams. We must pray that God would restrain the spiritual powers behind Islam and grant us the great awakening that we desperately need for America.
Let us hear the call to prayer and not miss this moment,
Lou Engle The Call

thought provoking/ by p matti

Jesus told his disciples to “beware of the leaven of the Pharisees,which is hypocrisy...” Lk.12:1Is it really possible to live our life with one face only?Isn’t it unwise?Hasn’t God given us an ability to mislead and cheat in orderto protect ourselves?What does it mean to be “wise as serpents and harmless as doves”?Matthew 10:16Didn’t Rahab leave us an example of a person who was led by Godto lie and therefore was later promoted and honored by God fordoing so? Joshua 2Can we lie at least to bad people, if not to the righteous ones? Jesus was not just full of truth, He is the Truth. John 14:6He identifies Satan as the Father of ALL lies. John 8:44I don’t believe that Rahab had to lie in order to save the spies.She was not honored for her lies, but for her faith.Spiritual discernment and wisdom sometimes look like lying.Even the expression of our faith looks like a lie in the kigdomof darkness. When a Spirit filled believer says that he is a newcreation , Satan accuses him for lying and living in a denial.All statements of faith look like lies to the faithless world. We don’t need to lie in order to help God out.However, when facts are distorted and used for evil we should obey God more than men. Acts 5:29When the 12 tribes returned from their mission, ten of thembrought back the facts. Numbers 13, 14They were the majority and they all agreedin their testimony. Joshua and Caleb brought a contrary report.They looked at the same place with the eyes of faith and gavea positive report. Were they lying? No, they were simply looking beyond the visible, beyond thefacts in order to see the truth.

Sunday 2 pm, it’s time for an afternoon lunch. Something quick, something tasty. Nothing comes to mind… Gotta brainstorm, what’s in my fridge? ha! Today it’s more like ‘what’s not in my fridge’…. Eventually a few things stick out (not literally) Leftover brown rice, tuna, something creamy, some herbs, stuffed into a couple tomatoes over a bed of lettuce, a little bit of corn sprinkled... That should work. Hmmm… only one precious slice of bread left. Dilemma, dilemma… share it with hubby or not? Zat is ze question. Us frenchies have to have bread with salad. It’s not really an option. Its like, do fish swim.
While I tragically consider that thought I put the lettuce on the counter; some spinach leaves, and a mix of iceberg lettuce, cabbage and carrots. There’s something – rather there are many things I can’t stand, such as dragging feet, whining, being sticky on the beach, not understanding how something works, weak coffee, and let’s just say this is a very non-exhaustive list. One more: lettuce that’s become brownish on the edges. Need I say more?
I started looking through the lettuce mix to pick out the few surviving leaves... As I throw the unworthy ones on one side of my counter, it occurs to me that the leaves that were clumped together weren’t brown at all. My interest levels rises, one eyebrow arches. What’s the secret? Oxidation?.. The leaves that were detached from the other ones had more chances to be exposed to air/oxygen… and so the moral of the salad jumps at me; there’s strength and protection in the bunch, don’t isolate yourself!
I’m smiling at myself. When I was a teenager my mom would always find a ‘christian’ analogy for any movie we’d watch. (if you know someone who does that, you’ll know just what I mean) I would secretly roll my eyes… but thank you mom; I guess I still got something out of it, that we can learn something everyday! Like the brown lettuce principle…

I had a good lunch and an even better lesson.

and P.S. Half a slice of bread was just right.

wow. we live in a wicked world. but what's new

Throwing children into oncoming traffic: The truth about AutismBy: Kenneth Stoller, MD, FAAP with Anne McElroy DachelTuesday, April 24th, 2007
I have been a practicing pediatrician for over 20 years. I saw my first child with autism in the early 90’s, before that I had never seen an autistic child, and I never saw an autistic child in all my years at school. The boy was 4 years old and you could see the frustration in his face as he wanted to speak but nothing intelligible would come from his mouth except shrieks of anguish.
As I studied his tortured face, it was as if there was an old time telephone switchboard operator inside his head trying to plug in the correct phone cables but not being able to complete the call. This family had known me from an old practice I worked at in another city, but they had traveled to see me because they trusted me and were looking for answers that no one seemed to have for them, but I too had no answers and I could see the mom was greatly disappointed. After the family left my office I poured over a few dusty textbooks and wondered if I had just seen a very rare disorder, a disorder that affected one child in 10,000 children’s autism.
I had been involved in pediatrics for a decade by the time I saw this boy and it wasn’t as if I had no experience working with rare disorders. I had been able to identify a boy with Fragile-X syndrome and his mom ending up starting the Fragile-X support group at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles.
I had noticed there was a strange upswing in children with attention disorders and impulsivity problems. I wasn��t a neurologist, but had studied with one of the finest at UCLA. While I was still a pediatric resident I spent time in his office where he helped me study the parade of unusual maladies that was starting to afflict children. I considered myself a closet neurologist, because that was what I had really wanted to specialize in, not pediatrics, but during my neurology rotation in medical school I learned some discouraging news. The attending neurologist, whom I greatly admired, had taken me on rounds for the first time and I watched him brilliantly explain to the family of a stroke patient how he had figured out where in the brain the blood clot had lodged. Then he stood up and walked out of the room and I asked him what therapy he was going to prescribe for the patient so he could recover from his stroke, “therapy?” he said, “there is no therapy.”
Well, I scratched neurology off my list, the diagnosis was only meaningful if you could offer a treatment and it seemed neurology had few treatments to offer.
My second patient with autism came to me in the mid 1990’s, but to my relief the purpose of the visit was only to treat worms. I dutifully prescribed the medicine for pinworms and went on to my next patient. Later that afternoon I received a call from the autistic boy’s mom who wanted to know what was that medicine I had given her son for pinworms. Her boy was starting to make eye contact, show affection and communicate with his family. She said it was amazing! I told her I didn’t really know what was in the pinworm pill but immediately prescribed enough pills for her son to take everyday for a month (normally you only take one or two pills to treat pinworms).
I called up the pharmaceutical company that manufactured the pinworm pill and spoke to one of their technical staff. They told me the pill worked by blocking the transport of molecules of a certain size from crossing cell membranes, so in the case of the hapless pinworms they were unable to absorb the sugars they feed upon in the lower intestines of their victims.
What did that have to do with this boy’s newly found improved behavior? Either one of two things were going on:
1) the drug was either blocking a molecule that shouldn��t be passing across the gut to the blood and then the brain and that molecule was having a drug-like affect on the brain, or;
2) the drug was blocking a molecule that normally crossed from the gut into the blood but in certain children these molecules had a strange drug-like affect.
I made several calls across the country to find a researcher who might be interested in this serendipitous finding which could be an important clue into this disease, because no where had I found anything saying that the guts of these children were involved in their disease. Unfortunately, no one I talked to was interested.
Testifying to Congress...
In May 2004, I had been invited to testify in front of the Government Reform Committee to discuss new developments in treating children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. I had been invited because of the work I was doing with hyperbaric oxygen in treating brain injured children, including fetal alcohol syndrome. Hyperbaric oxygen is where oxygen is given under pressure in chambers that are used to treat scuba divers who get the bends. I and several other physicians had found that hyperbaric oxygen was returning functionality to the brains of affected children.
Sitting next to me was a physician who told the story of his son who had become autistic after receiving vaccine and how he discovered his son was retaining toxic heavy metals, specifically mercury. Over the course of a year this physician had given his son a chemical to pull out the mercury and his son began speaking again and in fact jumped on his dad’s lap and addressed the Committee members having been restored to be a healthy boy without any signs of his autism.
In the 1990’s I had known there was a problem with many of the vaccines because they contained the preservative Thimerosal (50% mercury) and I had discouraged many parents from getting vaccine containing Thimerosal.
There is no safe level of mercury, and it didn’t make sense to inject the most toxic non-radioactive element on the planet into children, but I never made the connection between autism and mercury. I knew what Thimerosal was because while I was in college my brother had a very bad reaction to the Thimerosal that used to be used in contact lens solution.
I was taken aback that something so obvious had not registered with me, but I didn’t realize that I and my physician colleagues had been subjected to a disinformation campaign to make us think there was no connection between mercury and autism. It has been known for sometime that mercury was causing autism, but someone was running interference. The question was who was running interference?
In February 2007, the watchdog agency on America's health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), made the official announcement that a breath-taking one in 150 kids is autistic in the U.S. If you go to the CDC website on autism ( you’d see lots of pictures of smiling happy children with autism and we’d be told that autism spectrum disorders are “a group of developmental disabilities defined by significant impairments in social interaction and communication and the presence of unusual behaviors and interests.”
You won’ t be told that for many parents autism is a nightmare from which they never wake up. “Significant impairments” can mean that a child is violent and self-abusive, non-verbal, and physically sick. You won’t be told that this is a medical disease where most autistic children have significant inflammation in both gut and brain including colitis, super-infections and severe food allergies.Even though autism affects one in 90 boys (four boys affected for every girl) in the U.S., the CDC can’t seem to tell us exactly why. The CDC states, “We still don’t know a lot about the causes of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs). Scientists think that both genes and the environment play a role, and there might be many causes that lead to ASDs”.
The site also doesn’t mention that only one in 10,000 children in the 1970s, and one in 2,500 in the 1980s were autistic.

oh vaccinations! we all thought you were for our good?!

this is going to be boring for those who are not interested in the topic of vaccinations, if that's the case please skip!


This is a comment following a thread on Katie Tompkins’ wall on facebook. I just didn’t want to put such a lengthy note on her wall and since a few pple had previously asked my opinion on the subject here it is.
I’d like to say first that regarding vaccinations,
each parent has to do their homework and make a decision based on their own personal convictions.

vaccinations are an extremely controversial topic – to say the least , and they are also very relative to what kind of medical education you have been exposed to. I know my mom vaccinated us 3 when we were kids but she said, she would never vaccinate us with what she knows now.
The hard part is that pple that should know, ie. medical professionals, don’t know for the most part. And let’s just say that SOME people in the medical field are so ....brain washed (what other word is there?), it's really sad. some of them though are amazing and stand for what they've discovered to be the truth and they've got the tough job, they have to face an entire world; we usually only face a handful of people (peds, and in-laws lol!)

And all this is just the little bit I’ve personally discovered on the subject – it’s not exhaustive, I’d be glad to learn more from anyone who reads this – if it’s from personal and thorough research.

i do agree with all the comments that were posted on katie’s wall: each parent stands alone before God for their decisions for their children.

but i disagree abt vaccinations having no links to SERIOUS disorders. historically speaking the multiplications of the immune system related disorders COINCIDES with the time when vaccinations started being administered 'in bulk', and to most children under age 2. of course there are cases when non-vaccinated children caught some diseases, but there are trust worthy studies that show cases where children that were vaccinated became more vulnerable than other ones. my own brother was vaccinated against whopping cough and litterally -no kidding- almost died of it. he had had all the follow ups...
Some ‘mandatory’ vaccinations only cover half of the different forms of the viruses for one disease…… hello?!?! So what are our children to do if they catch the ‘other half’? die? No they’ll survive because us parents can prepare them to face viruses with a strong immune system.

and yes some non-vaccinated child(AS WELL AS A VACCINATED CHILD) will maybe die- to go to the extreme- of some disease but this is what the whole topic revolves around, in my opinion:

PEOPLE DO NOT DO PREVENTION THESE DAYS! (what i mean by that is taking whatever is necessary to keep yr IMMUNE SYSTEM up- for adults and kids too, and little ones especially)
we live in such a corrupt world where most foods are completely depleted of vitamins and such, which are essential to maintaining a healthy immune sys.

a child whose immune system is protected, has a million more chances NOT to contract a virus (or at least to naturally combat it with success) than one that's vaccinated.

and as an FYI, white, regular, processed SUGAR is one of the leading causes for disabling kids’ (and adults’) immune system.

As far as our daughter goes (now 10 mths old) we've been giving her colloidal Silver (*see note)ever since she was a few weeks old. She had contracted thrush and by the time I realized the prescription wasn’t going to help, her tongue looked like it was covered with cottage cheese and her feeding was very painful. To make a somewhat long story short, we put her on colloidal silver and pro-biotics and cured it completely in less than a week. She’s been on the Silver ever since (in smaller doses of course).

A few other points I’d like to make on behalf of the no-vaccination …
since when is ONE remedy good for all? I thought each child had a unique body structure and genetic design (of course now they realize that kids that have asthma should not be administered vaccines) And since when can politicians impose something that has to do with medicine on the people? When did they go to medical school?..
I won’t even go into all, I mean ALL the links that have been found between vaccinations and autism, (the fact that the syndromes of autism and the syndromes of mercury poisoning are one and the same says a lot) ADHD and other immune system related dysfunctions… It’s absolutely mind bottling.

It’s one thing for vaccinations to be reinforced when there were plagues and deadly epidemics, but to force them on people, or rather little children, in countries where we have the means to treat most diseases, and especially knowing some of the life threatening side effects of those vaccines is not acceptable.
don't get me started on the financial side of vaccinations.

I know this note is not exhaustive or even remotely thorough (and I’m probably forgetting something I meant to say) but this is what I’ve discovered so far, and what time allows me to put down.

Oh and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t put your kids in any school if they’re not vaccinated. Of course schools will give you a hard time but for example in the state of MD (do the research for where you live) a parent can legally excuse their child for either ‘medical or religious reasons’. There are ways to make this be a ‘religious’ affair. Not by quoting verses and chapter but by going back to the principles and laws of nature ordained by God. (more on that next time :)

*Colloidal Silver in a nutshell -How It Works
The presence of
colloidal silver near a virus, fungus, bacterium or any other single celled pathogen disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme, its chemical lung, so to speak. Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies, and is cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and elimination systems. Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics, which destroy beneficial enzymes, colloidal silver leaves these tissue-cell enzymes intact, as they are radically different from the enzymes of primitive singe-celled life. Thus colloidal silver is absolutely safe for humans, reptiles, plants and all multi-celled living matter.

I buy mine at health concern (towson,md) the best brand name seems to be the 'sovereign silver'

COLLOIDAL SILVER... just amazing.

How It Works
The presence of
colloidal silver near a virus, fungus, bacterium or any other single celled pathogen disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme, its chemical lung, so to speak. Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies, and is cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and elimination systems. Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics, which destroy beneficial enzymes, colloidal silver leaves these tissue-cell enzymes intact, as they are radically different from the enzymes of primitive singe-celled life. Thus colloidal silver is absolutely safe for humans, reptiles, plants and all multi-celled living matter.

Product Quality
Many brands of
colloidal silver are inferior. The highest grade is produced by the electro-colloidal / non-chemical method where the silver particles and water have been collided, i.e., dispersed within and bound to each other by an electric current. The super-fine silver particles are suspended indefinitely in demineralized water. Ideally, colloidal silver is clear to a very slight golden yellow. Darker colors indicate larger silver particles that tend to collect at the bottom of the container and are not true colloids. If a product contains a stabilizer or lists trace elements other than silver, or if it needs to be shaken, it is inferior. If a product requires refrigeration, some other ingredient is present that could spoil. Some brands with high concentrations of silver may actually not be completely safe. High concentrations of silver do not kill disease germs more effectively than the save range of 5 to 15 parts per million (ppm.).

Ingesting Colloidal Silver
Taken orally, the
colloidal silver is absorbed from the mouth into the bloodstream, then transported quickly to the body cells. Swishing the solution under the tongue briefly before swallowing may result in faster absorption. If only small doses of colloidal silver are taken it may take three to four days for silver to accumulate in the tissues sufficiently for benefits to begin. Colloidal silver is completely eliminated form the body by the kidneys, lymph system and bowls after several weeks. If routinely exposed to dangerous pathogenic germs, to have continuous protection, some recommend a regular daily intake of colloidal silver. In cases of minor burns, an accumulation of colloidal silver may hasten healing, reducing the possibility of infection and scar tissue. (A fine spray mist or compress soaked in colloidal silver can also be very helpful.) It is believed by many in the natural healing arts that the lives of millions of people who are susceptible to chronic low-grade infections can be enhanced by this preventative health measure.

Chronic or Serious Conditions
One teaspoon of 10 ppm.
colloidal silver equals about 50 micrograms (mcg.) of silver. One to three teaspoons per day (50-150 mcg.) is generally considered to be a "nutritional amount" and is reported to be safe to use for extended periods of time. Amounts higher than this are generally considered "therapeutic amounts" and should only be used periodically. In cases of illness, natural health practitioners have often recommended taking double or triple the "nutritional amount" for 30 to 45 days, then dropping down to a smaller, maintenance dose. Amounts from 3-32 ounces per day have reportedly been used in acute conditions.

I am actually giving some to my 4 months old daughter and so far it has cured her from a very acute case of thrush (which prescribed medication didn't do anything for) and has kept her healthy though in close contact with sick babies and her parents sick with stomach flu at christmas!
