BECAUSE HE LIVES, I CAN FACE TOMORROW. As I sang this old hymn today, I contemplated how true it is. We often fail to focus on His solutions, and focus on our fears of the problems. Our minds exaggerate the problems, and often fail to see that solutions have been created and are waiting for us. I have a family member who faces death due to cancer, and all around cancer is taking people. The Blush Wood Berries found in the rain forests of Far North Queensland in Australia have been found to cure melanoma cancer quickly in 75% of the cases, and cure it so it doesn’t return. Sea cucumbers kill all kinds of cancers. This is in line with the Bible verse, “…and the leaves of the trees were for the healing of the nations.” The context of this verse is where people are in perfect fellowship with their Creator, and I believe would apply to us today if we were in close harmony with Him. The reason these cancer cures are not widely known or used is that greedy pharma can’t make money off of them. Good hearted people still have a voice, they can still share with each other globally using the Internet. If we realize what we have, we realize that we are not living in a hopeless world.
BECAUSE HE LIVES, ALL FEAR IS GONE. The song’s chorus goes like this: “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow, Because He lives, all fear is gone; Because I know He holds the future, And life is worth the living, Just because He lives!” We need to take a moment and pause and reflect…the World is sliding into a time of fear…the global economy wants to melt down…stock markets are crashing around the world…nations are devaluing their currencies…natural disasters are popping up…our govt. & the elite are creating civil disturbances in the U.S. between races & helping create Islamic terrorists even on own soil…certainly it seems normal to live in fear. But what about Yahshua’s time period? Those living back then faced many of the same kind of things. It is why the crowds gathered around Christ, because he had answers to all these countless problems. And people are still amassing around him to seek answers…just not much in the U.S.A. or Europe, because the masses have been taught to be politically correct with the World. As one political figure recently said, “Political correctness is killing this nation.” And that is one political statement I can agree with. God’s Word encourages us: “For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.” Life is worth the living, just because He lives!
A GENERATION LOOKING FOR SIGNS. We live in an age where American Christians are more anxious for signs of being divinely rescued than whether they are living holy lives approved by God. The churches are spending vast sums on their properties, even taking out loans w/ balloon payments. They should be using other loans, such as V5 logbook lenders who offer lower repayments and smaller balloon payments at the end of the term. Also, expecting that it will continue to work out. They are looking at the short term & neglecting the long term in several ways, in particular how the new young generation are being dealt with. The churches are finding entertaining ways to keep the young people busy to keep them coming to church, while neglecting to build overcoming spiritual skills into them. This is due in part to their rapture mentality. When difficulties come, and the churches can’t pay their overhead property expenses, & the older generation that is paying for things dies off, & the younger generation flakes off due to immaturity to overcome spiritual problems, then it is obvious many of these churches will close their doors. Perhaps missionaries from more spiritual areas of the world can bring a revival to America. (If it be Your will, grant us this help.) As I said earlier, there are answers—not the worldly quick fixes that the churches look for—but the answers that God has for us. These will be by the Spirit, not by the so-called worldly “prophets” with their revelations. God does speak to His loved ones on the Sonship level, & provides them understanding line upon line. It is a spiritually organic process between a Father and His collective adopted sons, who are willing to recognize His still small voice, rather than the flashy “signs” of the worldly church.
CANCER. I used cancer as an example of how God has provided us with solutions which are being neglected. Further along this line, I would call attention to some research. There is a book “The China Study” based upon 20 yrs. of medical-nutritional studies in China. A trilogy of authors wrote the book. The conclusion of all this research is that cancer is caused and can be stopped by diet. I quote a wiki report on the book: “The China Study examines the relationship between the consumption of animal products (including dairy) and chronic illnesses such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, breast cancer, prostate cancer and bowel cancer. The authors conclude that people who eat a whole-food, plant-based/vegan diet—avoiding all animal products, including beef, pork, poultry, fish, eggs, cheese and milk, and reducing their intake of processed foods and refined carbohydrates—will escape, reduce or reverse the development of numerous diseases.” This is certainly “food for thought”. Another idea for us to consider in dealing w/ cancer is cesium chloride therapy, which is a natural alternative cure. One more set of concepts to consider is the role the pancreas & its enzymes play in fighting cancer. Trypsin is one of the important pancreatic enzymes that has been supplemented w/ cancer victims that has helped. On the flip side…there are some cultures like the Maasai in Africa, and the Eskimos who eat a high intake of animal protein & don’t have our rates of modern diseases like cancer…. So there is certainly a vast set of factors involved in getting cancer, but obviously our modern processed food, our modern diet & the toxins in our environment & food are seriously contributing to the cancer problem. Again, if we look to the age-old wisdom, the diet given by God would help us.
