Fish oil outperforms statin in heart failure study

Italian researchers gave nearly 3,500 patients a daily omega-3 pill, a prescription-formulation pill derived from fish oils, produced by Norway's Pronova BioPharma.

In the group of patients taking the fish oil pills, 1,981 died of heart failure or were admitted to the hospital with the problem. In the patients on placebo pills, 2,053 died or were admitted to the hospital for heart failure.

Remember this man?

Seems like the sun was out and even one person got sun stroke. And now we see how right he was...I still have a hard time believing he did this, after so many respectable broadcast of focus on the family. I recall guys like him in high school smarting off to substitute teachers. Class clowns...

Shekinah Fellowship: Who was it?

Saturday, August 30, 2008


The following is a word-for-word transcript:

"The Spirit of God tells me, There will be a woman that will arise as a leader in the west. In her day much evil will take place. She will be very powerful.

"The Spirit tells me that, The church, once raptured--following the rapture--a woman president will be in the White House, and that woman president will destroy this nation, but My church will, will be gone. My saints will be home.

Prophecy delivered by Benny Hinn on December 31, 1989 at the Orlando Christian Center.

My Vision of the Destruction of America By A. A. Allen July 4, 1954 Atop the Empire State Building

William Branham (1933)

There arose up in America a most beautiful, but cruel woman. She held the people in her complete power.
I believed that this was the rise of the Roman Catholic Church, though I knew it could possibly be
a vision of some woman rising in great power in America due to a popular vote by women.
I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke
all over the land of America.
A.A Allen's Prophecy:

As I stood atop the Empire State Building, I could see the Statue of Liberty, illuminating the gateway to the new world. Here, spread before me like an animated map, is an area 60 or 80 miles in diameter. I was amazed that the Spirit of the Lord should so move me, there atop the Empire State building. Why should I feel such a surge of His Spirit and power there?

Then suddenly I saw from the Atlantic and from the Pacific and out of the Gulf rocket-like objects that seemed to come up like fish leaping out of the water. High into the air they leaped, each headed in a different direction, but every one toward the United States. On the ground the sirens screamed louder, and up from the ground I saw similar rockets beginning to ascend. To me these appeared to be interceptor rockets although they arose from different points all over the United States; however, none of them seemed to be successful in intercepting the rockets that had risen from the ocean on every side.

These rockets finally reached their maximum height, slowly turned over and fell back toward the earth in defeat. Then suddenly the rockets which had leaped out of the oceans like fish all exploded at once. The explosion was ear-splitting. The next thing which I saw was a huge ball of fire. The only thing I have ever seen which resembled the thing I saw in my vision was the picture of the explosion of the H-bomb somewhere in the South Pacific. In my vision it was so real that I seemed to feel a searing heat from it.

Brain Mysteries


When volunteers memorized word pairs as a compound word, the perirhinal cortex lit up, and this activity predicted whether the volunteers would be able to successfully remember the pairs in the future. The results suggest that the perirhinal cortex probably can form simple associations, such as between the parts of a complex object. This information is probably passed up to the hippocampus, which may create more complex memories, such as the place and time a specific object was seen.

Are Microwaves Killing The Insects, Frogs, And Birds? And Are We Next?

This person in China has done some homework...

The evidence keeps piling up as more and more studies appear that show that this microwave radiation is indeed insidiously killing ­ (not only ourselves but also) ­ our precious birds, amphibians, and insects. Many peer-reviewed studies relating to the destruction of birds, animals, and plants by microwave radiation . Many governments are experimenting with microwave weather control that is ultra high in radiation. You can see the striation in the clouds as they bombard the canopy of the sky and lift it up higher to diffuse any weather passing through an area. The net result is always no rain.

Diffrent Approach To Church



Last Saturday Matthew had to go out on a bid. While returning from his bid he came across something unusual.

He saw what looked like one of those old photo develop booths. Only this one was diffrent. “The Main Place Christian Fellowship”, an evangelical church located in Tustin outside Los Angeles, had converted a former photo booth in a nearby parking lot into a drive-though prayer booth. Any driver in need of a prayer can drive through and remain in his car while a pastor on duty prays for him through a window. In addition to free prayers, the booth also gives away free Bibles, bottled water and sometimes flowers.
Evangelical pastor Martin Mosier is one of the pastors on duty at the drive-through prayer booth in Tustin, CA.









Card Board Church







Seems like some artist set out to prove the myth of people needing a Mega~Church building to worship God in. They made a portable church out of cardboard that transcends some of our most enduring stone cathedrals. Apparently a few street people availed themselves of this church...and I am sure God was every bit there as any where else. You can see the artist churches being dispersed across the city by bike church planters...

Mushroom extract demonstrates immunity benefits

Japanese researchers in conjunction with the Yale School of Medicine have found the mushroom extract, AHCC, can strengthen the immune system and fight the onset of cancer among over-50s.
AHCC (Active Hexose Correlated Compound) is an oligosaccharide that is extracted from several mushroom species and has been recommended to the elderly by Japanese health professionals since 1987, according to Maypro, a New York-based supplier of AHCC.

Burning incense may create a sweet scent, but regularly inhaling the smoke could put people at risk of cancers of the respiratory tract, researchers reported Monday.

In a study of more than 61,000 ethnic Chinese living in Singapore who were followed for up to 12 years, the investigators found a link between heavy incense use and various respiratory cancers.

TEACHING IN TONGUES

Is it possible?

The gift of interpretation of tongues is not to translate tongues, but to interpret what was said in tongues. On the day of Pentecost there were at least fifteen different languages being interpreted. Each understood in their native language what was being said, but only what was said in their own language. Those who heard their native tongue being spoken understood what was said, but they did not understand the many other languages being spoken. That is why today the gift of interpreter is necessary when ministering in a similar atmosphere of communication: declaring and or teaching the wonderful works of God.

Each heard in their own tongue the people praising God and declaring the wonderful works of God. Teaching the word of God is a declaration of the wonderful works of God. All ministries that are under the influence of The Holy Spirit declare the wonderful works of God. You cannot teach or even speak of God with out declaring his wonderful works.

A simple, but very important point in understanding the vastness of the Gift of Tongues is the word DIVERSITIES. You can speak in tongues, pray, teach, preach and any other form of ministry. There is a prayer and praise tongue, a warring tongue, a prophetic tongue, a preaching teaching tongue, and even a mourning tongue. In every way that tongues are used they will always declare the wonderful works of God. Like any other gift or work of God it will always bring Him glory.

Prayer in tongues is commonly exercised by many Christian today, unlike Pentecost where they were not so much praying, but declaring. Jesus commanded the wind and the sea and they obeyed Him. It was a command not a prayer. At the raising of Lazarus Jesus prayed and then for the people sake that were standing by He went from prayer to command: LAZARUS COME FORTH. Jesus gave us the reason for this: "That they may believe that thou hast sent me."

We must be careful not to limit or restrict the use of tongues or any other ministry gift to praying only. At some point prayer must move to action. And never discourage anyone desiring to speak with other tongues or prayer in an unknown language especially when it involves young people desiring to move in the supernatural. Forbid them not.

The apostle Paul never discouraged tongues. Even when he was teaching on a time to be silent he didn’t say stop. He said speak to yourself and to God, or when teaching he said, let it be by two or at the most three and let someone interpret. But you can see that he never ended it. He was a great promoter of every gift of God and said, "I thank God I speak with tongues more than you all" and "Forbid not to speak with tongues."

If your church or fellowship discourages the use of unknown tongues you might consider finding another church. There are many Spirit filled churches that would love to have you join them. Never stay long where the people do not believe in you, and if there is no faith for you, why stay? Do as Jesus did and move on. Life is too short to stay in an atmosphere of unbelief. Go where God can use you. Surround yourself with as much faith as possible, love everyone but take that love where it will have the greatest impact.

In your study of tongues, please remember the importance of the word DIVERSITIES. What applies to one type of tongues may not at all apply to another. Unknown tongues, tongues of men and of angels, praying or singing in the Spirit, they all have different functions and applications. There is one thing that we as believers will forever share in common, we live to glorify God. That is the purpose of every good and perfect gift.

Paul said that in the church (while teaching) he would rather speak five words with his understanding, that by his voice he might teach others, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue. Then he went on to explain how the gift of interpretation of tongues can be useful to accomplish the goal of communication (speaking with understanding). That by his voice, or the voice of the interpreter he might teach others.

Tongues with the interpretation can be equal to prophecy in teaching, "Greater is he that prophesieth than he than speaketh with tongues, except he interpret." When tongues are interpreted it is as prophecy. Then: "All may learn, and all may be comforted." In this context of Paul’s teaching he said, "In the law it is written, With men of other lips will I speak unto this people." God can and does most certainly speak to people by the use of tongues. "Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret."

Loud Church

Crown Point tells church to quiet down
Dana Bell can look from her front porch directly at the tent set up in the church's parking lot. Because the noise gets so loud, she said, the family opens the windows all day to get the house as warm as possible and turns on the air conditioning for at least two hours each night while her children fall asleep. She said she also runs the washer, dryer and a fan to stifle the noise.

Choosing to forgive -- or not

Even the world recognizes that it is important to forgive:
Luke 6:37Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
It is your choice, which side of these issues you will you be on.

Since I live in the area I am in Long Beach CA a couple of times a month. I go by the Shekinah Fellowship geographical areas when I am there.

Some times I get the sense of Shekinah's presence as it was so long ago. Almost as if God were allowing me to travel back in time and re experience those incredible times when the Holy Spirit was moving at Shekinah during Brant's watch.

At those particular moments this hope and optimism floods my soul. I recall Brant's enthusiasm and faith in every detail.

Then I drive back home wondering what I am supposed to do with these awakened memories of Shekinah Fellowship as it used to be...

Believe me when I tell you that there is a man that will one day appear on the scene who will restore the good things of Shekinah Fellowship that all of us can agree upon. He will be incredibly focused upon Christ and he will not have secret sin to anchor him down from moving forward as Brant had.

This man is a fighter who knows how to win. He is powerful in the Lord and you will recognize him the minute you come under his ministering. He is a loving husband and a loving father of his children.

God has placed the same anointing upon him as Brant Baker had. Pastor Tilson and myself agree that this man is the one that God has chosen to continue the healing ministry that Brant Baker had believed for.

God has kept this man hidden in the 'back~side~of~the~desert' until the right moment in time for him to take over.

We are not surprised at God's wonderful hand in this man's life. He has held the flame for years and years, patiently waiting on the Lord for the promise. Knowing that the day will come when he is released to minister full time.

And when that day comes all of us will rejoice with him in the power and presence of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Hell Heard



The story varies, but here are the basics:
1. After going only a few miles down, the drill began to spin wildly.
2. A ‘Doctor Azzakov’ is quoted as stating authoritatively that it has been shown that the earth is hollow.
3. Immensely high temperatures were experienced, much higher than expected at that depth. Usually 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit or 1,100 degrees Celsius is quoted.
4. Microphones were lowered into the hole (to ‘listen to the earth’s movement’). Human screams were heard—hordes of ‘tortured souls’.
5. Many of the scientists have quit the project in fear and/or have become total nervous wrecks.
.
Here’s the "quote" that has been making it’s way through evangelical circles:
"We lowered a microphone, designed to detect the sounds of plate movements down the shaft. But instead of plate movements we heard a human voice screaming in pain! At first we thought the sound was coming from our own equipment."
"But when we made adjustments our worst suspicions were confirmed. The screams weren’t those of a single human, they were the screams of millions of humans!"
Oh, you wanted to HEAR the screams from hell? But of course! Listen to it here (mirror ) .
.
More than forty years ago, researchers in the Soviet Union began an ambitious drilling project whose goal was to penetrate the Earth’s upper crust and sample the warm, mysterious area where the crust and mantle intermingle– the Mohorovičić discontinuity, or "Moho."
This type of drilling was completely new and the technology didn’t exist to go that deep, and so the Russians had to invent a completely new was of drilling to be able to do it. Unfortunately, the Russians never reached their goal, and many of the Earth’s secrets were left undiscovered, however The Kola Superdeep Borehole is still a scientifically useful site, and research there is ongoing.
.
When drilling stopped in 1994, the hole was over seven miles deep, making it by far the deepest hole ever drilled by humans. The last of the cores to be plucked from from the borehole were dated to be about 2.7 billion years old. Although the Kona hole was the deepest hole ever drilled (until this one) , seven miles was still very short of the 20-80km required to penetrate the earth’s crust.

Now we are thinking...
If it was so hot "How come da heat didn't boin da wires?" The mike would have been melted.
The following article appeared in the well respected Finland newspaper, Ammenusastia:
.

As a communist I don’t believe in Heaven or the Bible; but as a scientist I now believe in Hell," said Dr. Azzacove. "Needless to say we were shocked to make such a discovery. But we know what we saw and we know what we heard. And we are absolutely convinced that we drilled through the gates of Hell!"
.
Dr. Azzacove continued, ". . .the drill suddenly began to rotate wildly, indicating that we had reached a large empty pocket or cavern. Temperature sensors showed a dramatic increase in heat to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit."
.
"We lowered a microphone, designed to detect the sounds of plate movements down the shaft. But instead of plate movements we heard a human voice screaming in pain!
.
At first we thought the sound was coming from our own equipment.""But when we made adjustments our worst suspicions were confirmed. The screams weren’t those of a single human, they were the screams of millions of humans!"
'The information we are gathering is so surprising, that we are sincerely afraid of what we might find down there,' stated Dr Azzacov, the manager of the project in remote Siberia. 'The second surprise was the high temperature they discovered in the earth's center. 'The calculations indicate the given temperature was about 1,100 degrees Celsius, or over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit,' Azzacov pointed out. 'This is far more then we expected.
.
It seems almost like an inferno of fire is brutally going on in the center of the earth. 'The last discovery was nevertheless the most shocking to our ears, so much so that the scientists are afraid to continue the project. We tried to listen to the earth's movements at certain intervals with supersensitive microphones, which were let down through the hole. What we heard turned those logically thinking scientists into a trembling ruins. It was a sometimes a weak, but high pitched sound which we thought to be coming from our own equipment,' explained Dr Azzacov.
.
'But after some adjustments we comprehended that indeed the sound came from the earth's interior. We could hardly believe our own ears. We heard a human voice, screaming in pain. Even though one voice was discernible, we could hear thousands, perhaps millions, in the background, of suffering souls screaming.
.
After this ghastly discovery, about half of the scientists quit because of fear. Hopefully, that which is down there will stay there,' Dr Azzacov added.
.
'What really unnerved the Soviets, apart from the voice recordings, was the appearance that same night of a fountainhead of luminous gas shooting up from the drill site, and out of the midst of this incandescent cloud pillar a brilliant being with bat wings revealed itself with the words (in Russian): 'I have conquered,' emblazoned against the dark Siberian sky.
.
'The incident was absolutely unreal; the Soviets cried out in terror,' says Mr. Nummedal. Later that night, he saw ambulance crews circulating in the community. A driver he knew told him that they had been told to sedate everybody with a medication known to erase short term memory. The Soviets use this drug in the treatment of shock victims.
.
As a communist I don’t believe in heaven or the Bible but as a scientist I now believe in hell," said Dr. Azzacove. "Needless to say we were shocked to make such a discovery. But we know what we saw and we know what we heard. And we are absolutely convinced that we drilled through the gates of Hell!"

.
Do you know why Jacques Costeau, the famous underwater explorer, quit deep sea diving sometime before he died? It is said that he stopped because he had heard in one of the underwater caves he was exploring, the sounds of people screaming.
.
There was also another time, when one of his men, who was in a diving bell in the deepest trench at the Bermuda Triangle, also had a similar experience. He signaled to be brought up immediately. After being revived from his shock, he told others of his frightening experience of hearing "Screams of people in pain".

The rise of the superclass

In the first chapter of David Rothkopf's "Superclass: The Global Power Elite and the World They Are Making," the author quotes Mark Malloch Brown, a British minister of state and former deputy secretary-general of the United Nations, recalling what it was like to walk with his wife through a reception in New York for the World Economic Forum. The WEF puts on the famous annual meeting of business leaders, political figures, NGO heads, scientists and other movers and shakers, nicknamed after the small Swiss alpine town where it takes place, Davos. After crossing the room and shaking countless manicured hands in the process, the couple turned to each other and marveled that "we walk though the Davos party and know more people than when we're walking across the village green in the town we live in."

Listen to these wind chimes

Accurately hand tuned. I like to have these play sometimes while I am searching the net for stuff to post here.

You weren't expecting anyone, so you were startled by the doorbell ringing. You didn't recognize the man at the door. He introduced himself as the neighbor to the rear of your property.

You immediately took a mental inventory of your backyard, and were satisfied when you came up clean. He couldn't be here complaining about any eyesores on your side of the fence.

Quite the contrary. He wanted to know where you got that CD that he could hear playing in your home. His wife loved it, and had sent him to find out what it was. After narrowing down the direction from which the music emanated, he ended up at your house.

He was pleasantly surprised to discover that it was your Wind Carillons that made the tranquil music she liked so much. And even happier when you told him where he could get them.

Does God Still Speak?

The Bible records God speaking audibly to people many times (Exodus 3:14; Joshua 1:1; Judges 6:18; 1 Samuel 3:11; 2 Samuel 2:1; Job 40:1; Isaiah 7:3; Jeremiah 1:7; Acts 8:26; 9:15 – this is just a small sampling). There is no Biblical reason why God could not or would not speak to a person audibly today. With the hundreds of times the Bible records God speaking, we have to remember that they occur over the course of 4000 years of human history. God speaking audibly is the exception, not the rule. Even in the Biblically recorded instances of God speaking, it is not always clear whether it was an audible voice, an inner voice, or a mental impression.

Evangelical Protestant faith has always affirmed, as a central tenet of its understanding of divine revelation, that the Word of God must have supreme authority in religion. Evangelicalism has historically held this view in close conjunction with the work of the Holy Spirit. The truth can be stated this way:
The living and true God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is supreme head of a living church, is not mute. He speaks — and He speaks clearly — by His Spirit and through His written word, the Bible.’
.
I heard an excellent message this past weekend by my Pastor entitled “Hearing God’s Voice” in which he explored the various ways Gods speaks. Does God still speak in this day in age? You bet he does! In fact, God has never stopped speaking not only to those who love and serve him but to those who don’t as well.
.
Does God still speak to us today?
Let me tell you a little story, and you be the judge.
.
(This one brought tears)
A young man had been to Wednesday night Bible Study. The Pastor had shared about listening to God and obeying the Lord's voice. The young man couldn't help but wonder, "Does God still speak to people?" After service he went out with some friends for coffee and pie and they discussed the message.

Christianity Is Under Attack

Recently more and more people have rejected the God of the Bible. As belief in God has been abandoned, people have questioned the basis of the society in which they live. For instance, if there is no God, then why should they obey the Ten Commandments? Why should anyone say that homosexuality is wrong? Why should women be barred from having abortions whenever they desire? Once people eliminated God from their consciences, they set about to change any laws based on Christian absolutes that held God as Creator (and thus owner) of everything.

PRAISE THE LORD FOR SADDLEBACK.

A heart for the youth:

SADDLEBACK CHURCH
In my 37 years of ministry, I have never witnessed a church with such a heart for the youth. Like the expression ‘Put your money where your mouth is’ Saddleback has certainly passed the test. The REFINERY, their newest youth facility, is outstanding and includes a large skateboard park.

Instead of giant signs that offend and discourage skateboarder, Saddleback has welcomed them.

As a near by pastor of a small church just three miles away, I watched closely the early stages of construction and they have always spent major money on children. I have rejoiced with them through the years for all that God has done and is about to do. I believe Rick Warren the senior pastor to be a very humble man of God. "Humble thyself in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up."

Rick Warren has a gift of wisdom that has promoted him to great honor and I certainly number him among the faithful.

Pastor Tilson Shumate
