A bit of this and that...

                                                   Happy Wednesday to y'all!
     My mind is literally brimming with thoughts and I am not sure what direction this post is going to take....haha! All that is going on this world today pretty much boggles this mind of mine. Ebola virus, cancer, wars and rumors of war, it just goes on and on! One could sit down and ponder all of this and panic or the other option is to sit down with the Word of God, the Bible, and be comforted as ALL of these things have been foretold long ago. None of the things going on today should come as much of a surprise because God has spoken of all of this in His Word, addressed each of them one by one. And as a Christian, who has been renewed by the  Holy Spirit, I am able to be discerning and knowledgeable regarding the past, present and the future. I am certainly not saying I am a fortune teller but by reading the Word of God I can see how all of this will turn out!
     I grabbed my Bible this morning to read a bit as I awaited the awakening of my extremely slow and turtle-like computer...... I opened up to the book of Jude which God strategically placed right before the Book Of Revelation, the telling of the end times! Yesterday I read of the mayor of Houston who is demanding to examine the sermons of 5 Christian pastors in that city who have opposed the appointing of this mayor. These pastors, who are leading the flock of Christ and preaching the Word of God, in season and out of season,  who are calling what God calls sin, sin, are being threatened for doing what God has commanded them to do! She wants to be sure that these church leaders are being politically correct?! And has threatened to fine and/or imprison those who do not comply by handing over their sermons and any private communications with church members.....Uhhm, pardon me for a moment, do we not reside in America, the land of the free and the home of the brave? Seems to me that we do have freedom of speech according to our First Amendment rights, at least last time I checked we still had that intact!!!! Meaning that a pastor or any citizen of the United States of America, for that matter, can speak their mind regarding truth...Hhmm, but now it appears that maybe we can only speak the truth if it is agreeable to the mayors of our cities. I'd sure like to know how that works!
     Starting in the book of Jude verse 11 of the King James Bible, I quote:
                             " But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life."
     So I can see here that God, speaking through Jude, the brother of James, has addressed this issue for us! I truly believe that we are living in the last days, my friends. So many things are changing, even regarding our basic rights as citizens, changes to the constitution, the basic principles that this country was built upon. We are supposed to watch what we say or we shall be silenced!!  But I pray that we, as brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, will stand up for all that we believe and for the things that we do NOT believe. Let us pray for those being persecuted for their faith in Christ Jesus that they may remain steadfast and faithful to God and His Word, not only all around the world, but also for those involved in the beginnings of persecution in our own cities, as we see happening in Houston. Let us remember to pray for those who are NOT of the body of Christ, that they might turn from their sin and be saved as Jude states in verses 21-23: "Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: and others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire: hating even the garment spotted by the flesh."
     I will end these thoughts with the last few verses of Jude verses 24-25:
                "Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and  to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God or Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen."

MUST share this info regarding the healing of cancer but not only cancer! This readily available and very cheap substance can control many other diseases running rampant in our world today. Honestly, who DOESN'T have someone in their life that has cancer or has had cancer or WILL have cancer? Cancer knows no socioeconomic status, it can hit any of us, at any time across the board! So, can you guess what this substance is?
                                                             Vitamin C AKA Ascorbic Acid
   Yup, it is true! And we can thank Dr. Linus Pauling, the "father of Vitamin C" himself for all of the research and studies to prove this. In his book, Cancer and Vitamin C  A Discussion of the Nature, Causes, Prevention, and Treatment of Cancer, with Special Reference to the Value of Vitamin C,(which I was able to find at my local library),  Dr. Pauling along with Dr. Ewan Cameron, a surgeon involved in the treatment of cancer patients, explain in laymen's terms how Vitamin C can turn this whole cancer ridden world around!

     "Cancer is caused by agents and conditions that change the genetic material in the cells of our bodies. It is clearly sensible for us to strive to prevent these changes and thus to prevent cancer. High-energy radiation causes cancer; hence we should avoid being exposed to it- no unnecessary x-rays, no over-exposure to sunlight, no radioactive pollution from nuclear weapons tests or nuclear power plants. Many chemicals cause cancer; hence we should try to identify and ban them.  Moreover, as will be pointed out later, vitamin c is a general detoxifying agent and its proper use can help to protect us against carcinogenic chemicals, even those in tobacco smoke, although here the only sensible course is to stop smoking. Our normal tissues and organs fight the renegade malignancy; it is our duty to ourselves to help strengthen them in this fight, and there is evidence that vitamin c and other nutrients provide this strengthening influence." (p.17 of Cancer and Vitamin C
     Seems almost too good to be true but reading through this book has truly made me a believer that we are all deficient in vitamin c and this simple little vitamin can do so much to help our bodies maintain their defense in fighting off and attacking the many diseases that are plaguing so many people today! Drs. Pauling and Cameron go on to explain the nature of cancer, causes, common forms, various treatments available, controlling cancer, and spontaneous regression in cancer.  Then they go on to discuss vitamin c, the immune system and vitamin c and the utilization of vitamin c in cancer patients. The test trials are discussed and case histories are presented which I found to be very interesting! Last but not least, the prevention of cancer is discussed and in conclusion, the role of vitamin c in the treatment of cancer.
     Now, you may look at the publishing date of this book, which happens to be 1979, and think this is an outdated source but I think not! This book, compiled 35 years ago is right on! And when you look at the success rates and cure rates of our present treatments for cancer, I think we need to give these studies way more credit. I hope that doctors that are treating cancer today might stop and reflect for a moment and carefully examine the cases presented in this book and learn from them. The options available for cancer treatment today are basically the same as they were in the 1950's: cut, burn and poison. When does the healing take place? Where is the nurturing of our bodies, these delicate systems that God so wonderfully put together? When do we address the issue of boosting our immune system? There is a better way, there really is and we as intelligent and thinking people must step up, research these things for ourselves and present these ideas to the medical community. Otherwise we will be drug down the path(literally), our choices severely limited by the doctors that refuse to see the value of vitamin c and many other remedies that can help our bodies heal instead of harm!  As the old saying goes,  "There are none so blind as those who will not see,( or in this case "C" as in vitamin c!)

Praying for the persecuted

Pastor Behnam Irani, who is currently serving a six year prison sentence for crimes against national security, is now facing new charges for spreading corruption on the earth. This is an Islamic sharia charge that carries with it, if convicted, the death sentence. The reason for the charges against Pastor Behnam is that he continues to speak out on his own behalf and encourage believers in his church by phone. Which, for Islam, the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ is indeed spreading corruption on the earth.
This is used as a political charge in Iran against anyone who does not submit to the government. The same charges were brought against two presidential candidates in February 2011. 
Their purpose is to silence Pastor Behnam and put fear in the hearts of Iranian Christians. Pray for Pastor Behnam and for the Christian community in Iran to stand strong and firm in the face of rising persecution. 
You can help Pastor Behnam as well by filming a short video saying "Free Pastor Behnam", posting it on facebook or youtube and sending it to us at speakout@freebehnam.com.
