New iPhone 7 Case Brings Back the Headphone Jack (thenextweb.com)

Apple removed the headphone jack in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, forcing users to use either create an iPhone 7 case with a built-in 3.5mm headphone jack.
Bluetooth, the Lightning port or included Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adaptor in order to listen to music through headphones. However, one company took it upon themselves to

The company is called Fuze and they recently launched an Indiegogo campaign that promises to bring the audio port back to the iPhone 7.

The Next Web reports: To achieve this, the company is taking Apple's Lightning to 3.5mm adapter and building it straight into a case, where you can plug your headphones with "no dongles, no adapters, no problems."

 In addition to the audio port, the Fuze Case will also serve as a battery pack as it adds 2,400mAh of extra battery life to the iPhone 7 and 3,600mAh to the 7 Plus.

 It will be available in five different colors including white, black, gold, rose gold and blue.

 The case is currently available for $49 to "super early bird" backers, but will increase to $59 once more people have chipped in and will eventually sell for $69 in retail.

 The company expects to start shipping the accessory in December later this year. 


The net price for the case will be much higher than quoted because they will be charged an initial fee by Apple to use the lighltning port in the product and then there will be a "per unit price" tacked on to the products cost. 

But none the less this case makes it possible to now purchase the stupid jackless iPhone 7.

Four States Sue To Stop Internet Transition (thehill.com)

Republican attorneys general in four states are filing a lawsuit to block the transfer of internet domain systems oversight from the U.S. to an international governing body. 

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt and Nevada Attorney General Paul Laxalt filed a lawsuit on Wednesday night to stop the White House's proposed transition of Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions. 

The state officials cite constitutional concerns in their suit against the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, U.S. government and the Department of Commerce.

 "The Obama Administration's decision violates the Property Clause of the U.S. Constitution by giving away government property without congressional authorization, the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution by chilling speech, and the Administrative Procedure Act by acting beyond statutory authority," a statement released by Paxton's office reads.

 The attorneys generals claim that the U.S. government is ceding government property, pointing to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) review that "concluded that the transition does not involve a transfer of U.S. government property requiring Congressional approval." 

Paxton also echoed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's warnings that the transition could harm free speech on the internet by giving Russia, China and Iran a voice on the international governing body that would oversee internet domain systems.

 "Trusting authoritarian regimes to ensure the continued freedom of the internet is lunacy," Paxton 

"The president does not have the authority to simply give away America's pioneering role in ensuring that the internet remains a place where free expression can flourish."

Spotify Is Growing And Is Wanting To Absorb SoundCloud Now

Spotify is in advanced talks to acquire rival music service SoundCloud, according to a report by the Financial Times.

 An announcement of the acquisition could be made soon, according to the Times. 

The acquisition would come just months after SoundCloud launched its own paid streaming service.

 A Spotify spokesperson declined to comment on the report when contacted by Variety; SoundCloud didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

 Spotify is the market leader in the growing paid streaming business, disclosing earlier this month that it now has more than 40 million paying subscribers.

 Its biggest competitor is Apple Music with 17 million paying subscribers.

Commodore C64 Survives Over 25 Years Balancing Drive Shafts In Auto Repair Shop (hothardware.com)

One common gripe in the twenty-first century is that nothing is built to last anymore. 

Even complex, expensive computers seem to have a relatively short shelf-life nowadays.

 However, one computer in a small auto repair shop in Gdansk, Poland has survived for the last twenty-five years against all odds. 

The computer in question here is a Commodore C64 that has been balancing driveshafts non-stop for a quarter of a century

When New
The C64C looks like it would fit right in with a scene from Fallout 4 and has even survived a nasty flood. 

This Commodore 64 contains a few homemade aspects, however.

 The old computer uses a sinusoidal waveform generator and piezo vibration sensor in order to measure changes in pressure, acceleration, temperature, strain or force by converting them to an electrical charge. 

The C64C interprets these signals to help balance the driveshafts in vehicles.

The Commodore 64 (also known as the C64, C-64, C= 64) was released in January 1982 and still holds the title for being the best-selling computer of all time.

Apple research center in China

According to Chinese media, Apple is launching its first research and development center in the country, located in long-time technology incubation area Zhongguancun Science Park, Beijing. While Apple has yet to comment on the matter, a statement issued by the Zhongguancun Park Management Committee to several Chinese media outlets has identified Apple's presence in the area. According to reports collated by Digitimes, the center has a budget of about $15 million, with a long-term expenditure goal of $45 million over the next few years. The center is allegedly seeking to hire around 500 workers, with no particular focus beyond Apple products and software. The move mirrors similar setups in Japan, and Israel.

It's Done! And By The Lord God It Will Stay Done!

One of the deadliest enemies of our walking in God's promises is the state of passively coexisting with the enemy.

Our own hearts must stop submitting to situations that are not right.

We have come to the time of which Jesus spoke, when the angels are to be sent to the four corners of the earth to separate the wheat from the tares ( Matthew 13:30,40-42 ).

We will not enter further into the bringing forth of the Kingdom until He separates the tares from the wheat.

We must not let time slip by and fail to redeem it.

How much time do we have left?

What will happen if the enemy delays us long enough?

We will miss the plan of God completely.

Then another, more violent generation will have to arise, who will get a Word from God and stay with it until t is fulfilled.

  At this particular time Satan cannot stop the revelation that comes to people's hearts.

The Living Word that is coming in this hour is very decisive.

It opens up heart after heart, but the hearts that are not open to God become completely closed to the Word.

  You must realize that you do not have a whole lifetime to seek God.

Jesus explained these present days with the parable of the ten virgins ( Matthew 25;1-12).

At a certain time the door will be shut.

Those who do not have their oil ready will be shut out; that will be the end of it.

There is an ominous foreboding in what is happening in these days.

A thousand prophets must come forth to execute God's purposes, but they will not come forth merely as the result of months and months of training.

To become true prophets of God, they must somehow break through the barrier of time.

  The conspiracy of Satan and hosts of demons will try to keep you tied down and preoccupied with many things.

The right teachings that God is bringing today, along with your own hope and expectations, could bring you into a full prophet's ministry.

But Satan will do everything he can to rob you of your time in order to delay you and slow you down.

He wants to hinder you and shackle you until you cannot win this end-time race.

  Learn what the enemy is doing to time.

Do not plan on becoming old and dying, with others coming on the scene merely to rehash the truths that have been given for this time.

Something must change the present pace.

You will not come forth into God's perfect plan without explosive faith and determination.

Something must happen in your life to prevent you from being drawn back from the full, intense fervor that you should have.

There are a thousand tricky situations, with little weights here and there, to make you lose the race.

  Luke records the parable of the sowing of the seed.

Some of that seed was ready to bring forth mature grain, but the thorns choked it out ( verse 7).

That is happening right now.

The rocky soil is not the problem.

Demonic birds are not plucking up the seed before it germinates, nor is persecution making it wither.

The main problem is the thorns that come and choke the Word.

You may be just short of breaking through to a mature ministry, to that manifestation of the sons of God ( Romans 8:19).

You may love the Living Word and feed upon it.

However, you must not only know how to feed upon it; you must also be able to reject the thorns that come to choke and strangle it.

  In a rising crescendo, like a tidal wave, many are rapidly approaching the manifestation of the sons of God; yet something is stopping the process.

They have been in one spot too long; they have been wandering around a mountain when they should have been moving into Canaan.

The army of the Lord must march with faith, not with frustration.

They must worship the Lord, giving praise and thanks, voicing their proclamations, making their claims, and moving right on to see things happen.

  Believe in God's promises to you.

Anticipate becoming one of those prophets of God; but believe also that you are hindered in approaching that goal.

The barriers must be broken.

Either that, or you will totally reject the possibility of ever seeing God's promises fulfilled.

You will find yourself putting their fulfillment back on the basis: "I am not worthy of this. I missed the boat."

You have not missed he boat.

It is Satan who is working to destroy you through the time element of one delay after another.

There is a fixed time; and if Satan can delay you long enough, you will miss God's plan for you.

  For the first time in the entire Christian era, there is a fixed time.

If you do not get in by that time, you are through, and you lose out.

Then shall the Kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins... Matthew 25:1.

Then refers to this end-time.

Read all of Matthew 25.

It is filled with stories about the end time.

Today you have only a certain period of time to do what God wants you to do.

  The Lord prophesied that He would do a quick work in the earth and cut it short in righteousness
 ( Romans 9:28 ).

This has to be.

There must be a people who break through.

These days must be shortened or no flesh will be left alive ( Matthew 24:22 ).

Satan is raging because he knows that he has only a short time ( Revelation 12:12).

He is more aware of what is happening to time than you are.

He is doing everything he can to play havoc with time, to bring oppression upon it until it gets away from you.

Frustration comes; and instead of time being an opportunity to seize upon the things of the Lord, you find you are running on a treadmill and getting off at the same place where you got on.

You must not accept that.

You have a responsibility to dig in with all your heart and see changes happen.

  You will not accomplish anything just by trying to discipline your time.

If you try to do this in yourself, you will fall right back into the efforts of the flesh.

It has to be done in the Spirit.

Merely making out a list of the day's activities and trying to follow it through will not work effectively in the Spirit.

Do you want to be like a cork in the waves of the ocean, or do you want to see destiny fulfilled that God has presented to His people?

There is a foreordained portion for the sons of God to walk in, and you must get into it.

You must be delivered from the futility of time.

You must be released from the frustration that you feel.

Start by believing God, by working right up to the realm of the Lord.

Stay in His presence, claim what you are going to have and believe!

  People live too much in the future.

They live in the realm of anticipation instead of appropriation.

They have a built-in response that says, "Yes, tomorrow will be wonderful. We will see marvelous things happen."

That built-in response will cause you to live in hope instead of faith.

As great a virtue as hope is, rule it out for right now.

You might as well be swallowed up by despair, as to live with the kind of hope that Satan can use to prevent a genuine active faith from operation immediately.

  But now abideth faith, hope , love , these three: and the greatest of these is love. I Corinthians 13:13.

You know that this Scripture true, and it is good to have hope.

In fact, sometimes you survive by hope.

But there comes a time when hope becomes only a crutch to hold you up.

As long as you have crutches, you say," Eventually I will walk.

 Right now I am doing well just to limp."

You need to throw away your crutches of hope and say, " I am going to have faith and walk right now!"

Something within you must rise up for more than hope or a good beginning.

Tell yourself, "Right now I am going to do it! Right now I am going to do it! Right now I am going to do it!"

  God always puts a test upon you, but not to judge you or condemn you for something that is wrong.

He only wants to see whether or not you are going to walk in what He is setting before you.

God's promises can be a blessing or they can be a curse.

If God has given you a promise, and yet you excuse yourself for not walking in it now because you are hoping that after a while it will come to pass, then that promise is a curse to you.

The Fundamentalists think that way, saying in effect, "We have nothing now.

The day of miracles and gifts is past. We believe that after a while we will have them, but in the meantime we will just sit and wait for a rapture."

That kind of reasoning produces a deadly passivity.

Anyone who is believing to walk in God's promises now is labeled a heretic by the Fundamentalists.

They would rather believe  the Scofield Bible and Larkin's teaching which explains that God's provision is all for the future.

Consequently, they must live with hope and call it faith.

That is misguided hope.

Traditional Christianity feeds unbelief to good orthodox believers until everything of faith is put off in the future.

Let us not limit the Old Testament promises to a Zionist movement that rejects Jesus Christ.

We read in the New Testament about the true Israel of God, and we see that there is no other name but Christ whereby we must be saved ( Acts 4:12 ).

That applies to Jew, Gentile, or anyone else.

  With today's restoration of the New Testament truths, you can say, "I have my Bible back again. It's promises are mine."

But what for?

Are you going to limp along for years like the Fundamentalists, or are you going to believe that you can walk in your destiny?

In your own heart you must feel this: "I am what god says I am, and I will not wait another day longer.

Right now I am a prophet.

I am raised up by God, and I will not walk under any handicap.

I am going to speak the Word of the Lord."

  Do not anticipate- appropriate!

That is what God wants you to do at all times.

In Exodus 3:13 Moses asked, "Who shall I say sent me?"

God has many names, but He answered, "YHWY."

It means, "I AM THAT I AM."

"I AM" is a present-tense verb.

The only way that you can truly express YHWH is this: "I AM THE GOD THAT I SAY I AM.


The Pharisees wanted to stone Jesus when He said , ...before Abraham was born, I AM." John 8:58.

He was not saying "I WAS," or "I WILL BE"; He was saying "I AM THE RIGHT-NOW GOD!"

If He declared that, then you should declare that you are the right-now ministry that God has called you to be.

If he is the Right-now God, then you are a right-now prophet.

Right now!

This is the accepted time ( II Corinthians 6:2 ).

There is no other way; it has to be now!

If what God is bringing forth on the earth is true, then you must walk in it now.

  What is the answer for the futility of time?

By faith we understand that the worlds (ages) have been framed by the Word of God...Hebrews 11:3.

God has made a provision for this end time, but it will not happen until someone stands up and prophesies this new age into existence.

Let us stand and proclaim this age.

Let us prophesy!

An age is framed by a Word of God.

Do we realize how much initiative God has given His people?

In a true submission to the Lord, we could prophesy any kind of Kingdom we want.

Jesus said, "According to your faith be it unto you" Matthew 9:29.

Those who bow to Him as their King are the Kingdom.

Jesus told His disciples, "Fear not, little flock; for it s your Father's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom" Luke 12:32.

As we serve Jesus as Lord, God is giving us the Kingdom!

It is our Kingdom.

What do we want to do with it?

  If the Kingdom is ours to proclaim, and it is to be the way we want it, then God will look down on us a thousand years from now and see a people who believed Him and made it happen.

Otherwise, we will have been a sorry mess of people who lived only wishful hopefulness.

He has given us the Kingdom and that is exactly what we must walk in.

Aren't you sick of falling short of God's promises?

There is nothing wrong with what He has done.

There is nothing wrong with the way we believe to see the Kingdom come forth.

In this age it has been laid in our hands, and we must take it.

  Decide what you want.

If you do not quite make it today, you can make it tomorrow.

Stay with it.

Continually live in the present appropriation, not in some future anticipation.

Make the prophecies that came in the past happen.

Let their fulfillment be in the present.

Talk about them now, and walk in them now.

Be like Peter : Get your foot over the edge of the boat and start walking on water.

Do it now, not because of any enthusiasm, but because you believe.

If you start sinking, someone will rescue you.

But start walking on water.

Right now!

  What happened to the Israelite's?

They looked at the giants and backed off in fear and unbelief.

God said, "That does it! You don't go into the promised land!"

Then they realized that they had sinned, and the next day they decided to go in and fight the giants.

God allowed the giants to slaughter them, and they were driven back into the wilderness where they were to wander for forty years until finally they all died ( Numbers 14).

They missed it by only twenty-four hours.

  In spite of all the promises that God has given for this hour, those who fall short of walking in them will be just like the Israelites; they will die in the wilderness of the tribulation.

Let us rather be today's sons of the prophets.

It is the accepted time.

Joshua would say, "Go and take the giants! You can do it"

Let us pull down everything that stands in the way.

Right now!

  This is not a time to relax.

It is a time to pursue Satan and his hordes to the gates of hell.

Stay with it until the victory is won perfectly.

Do not be satisfied with anything short of all that the Lord has spoken, ad more.

Now is the birth of the sons of the prophets.

From now on, move!

Accept the end-time ministry of Christ and His anointing upon you.

Walk in it!


40 Mile An Hour Drone!


It didn't take long for DJI to respond to GoPro's voice-controlled Karma drone


Today, the company has unveiled the Mavic Pro, an ultra-portable drone that can fold up into roughly the "size of a standard water bottle," DJI says.

 Of course, it also features a high-resolution camera and several autonomous software tricks.

PetaPixel reports:

  Despite its petite form factor, the drone packs a punch: there's a 4K camera on the front, a visual navigation system, a 4.3-mile (7km) range, and a 27-minute flight time. 

By comparison, the Karma has a range of 0.62 miles (1km) and a flight time of 20 minutes.

 The Mavic Pro can be operated with a remote controller for long-range uses, or simply with your smartphone if you're not planning to fly it far.

 For the latter, the drone can go from folded up to in flight in less than a minute. 

In the Mavic Pro is a new FlightAutonomy system, which uses 5 cameras, GPS and GLONASS navigation, 2 ultrasonic rangefinders, redundant sensors, and 24 computing cores to serve as the drone's "brain and nervous system." 

Using FlightAutonomy, the Mavic Pro can follow positions and routes while avoiding obstacles at 22mph (36kph), allowing you to create advanced flights with minimal input and flying skills. 

 What's more, the drone can even be controlled with your physical gestures, making it easy to shoot an aerial selfie if you so desire.

 A new compact remote controller has been designed for the Mavic Pro, and it features an LCD screen with essential data, dedicated buttons (e.g. Return-to-Home, Intelligent Flight pause), and a OcuSync video link system that provides live view at 1080p resolution.

 DJI is also announcing DJI Goggles to go along with the Mavic Pro. 

Wearing the goggles allows you to fly the drone with an immersive 85-degree view in full 1080p, viewing the world through the eyes of the drone.

 The DJI Mavic Pro will be available starting October 15th, 2016, with a price tag of $749 for just the drone and $999 with a remote controller bundled in. 


This looks like the one we all have been waiting for!

Nissan Debuts 'ProPILOT' Self-Driving Chair (pcmag.com)

A report via PC Magazine: 

 The Japanese automaker Nissan this week debuted what it's calling the ProPILOT Chair -- an autonomous chair that automatically queues for you while you sit back and relax.

 With its built-in cameras, the high-tech chair "detects and automatically follows the chair ahead of it, maintaining a fixed distance and traveling along a set path."

 Standing (or sitting) in line has never been so much fun.

 "Nissan drew inspiration for this new chair from its ProPILOT autonomous driving technology, which has been available in the company's Serena minivan in Japan since August," the report adds.

"The ProPILOT technology allows the vehicle to maintain a safe distance between the car ahead, and ensures that it stays in the center of its lane."

While the product appears to be a marketing stunt, Nissan is actively looking for restaurant partners in Japan who want to offer this technology to their customers.

 Japanese restaurants can tweet their name and website along with the hashtags #NissanProPilotChair #Wanted in an effort to be outfitted with the technology.

You can watch the joyful and jazzy launch video here.

Vladimir Putin Is Replacing Microsoft Programs With Domestic Software (bloomberg.com)

Image result for yandexMoscow city will replace Microsoft Corp. programs with domestic software on thousands of computers in answer to President Vladimir Putin's call for Russia's authorities to reduce dependence on foreign technology amid tensions with the U.S. and Europe.


 The city will initially replace Microsoft's Exchange Server and Outlook on 6,000 computers with an e-mail system installed by state-run carrier Rostelecom PJSC, Artem Yermolaev, head of information technology for Moscow, told reporters Tuesday. 

Moscow may expand deployment of the new software, developed by Russia's New Cloud Technologies, to as many as 600,000 computers and servers, and may also consider replacing Windows and Office, Yermolaev said. Putin is urging state entities and local companies to go domestic amid concerns over security and reliability after U.S. firms shut down paid services in Crimea following Russia's 2014 annexation. 

The plan poses a challenge to the likes of Microsoft, SAP SE and Oracle Corp. in the country's $3 billion software market. 

 Adding to pressure, Putin's internet czar German Klimenko wants to raise taxes on U.S. technology companies to help Russian competitors such as Yandex NV and Mail.ru Group Ltd.

FCC Official Asks Agency To Investigate Ban On Journalists' Wi-Fi Personal Hotspots At Debate (arstechnica.com)

Yesterday, it was reported that journalists attending the presidential debate at Hofstra University were banned from using personal hotspots and were told they had to pay $200 to access the event's Wi-Fi

The journalists were reportedly offered the option to either turn off their personal hotspots or leave the debate.

Cyrus Farivar via Ars Technica is now reporting that "one of the members of the Federal Communications Commission, Jessica Rosenworcel, has asked the agency to investigate the Monday evening ban."

Ars Technica reports: 

Earlier, Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel tweeted, saying that something was "not right" with what Hofstra did. She cited an August 2015 order from the FCC, forcing a company called SmartCity to no longer engage in Wi-Fi blocking and to pay $750,000. 

  Ars has since updated their report with a statement from Karla Schuster, a spokeswoman for Hofstra University:  

The Commission on Presidential Debates sets the criteria for services and requires that a completely separate network from the University's network be built to support the media and journalists. 

This is necessary due to the volume of Wi-Fi activity and the need to avoid interference. 

 The Rate Card fee of $200 for Wi-Fi access is to help defray the costs and the charge for the service does not cover the cost of the buildout. 

For Wi-Fi to perform optimally the system must be tuned with each access point and antenna. 

When other Wi-Fi access points are placed within the environment the result is poorer service for all.

 To avoid unauthorized access points that could interfere, anyone who has a device that emits RF frequency must register the device. 

Whenever a RF-emitting device was located, the technician notified the individual to visit the RF desk located in the Hall. 

The CPD RF engineer would determine if the device could broadcast without interference.


I report:

Bull Spittle I think they're worrying too much.

 I would suggest that they instead offer free WiF.

A couple of Apple Airport Extreme's around the room would have done the job with very little cash outlay. 

As it were, right now they look like profiteers seeking to make a buck.

YouTube-MP3 Ripping Site Sued By IFPI, RIAA and BPI (torrentfreak.com)

Two weeks ago, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry published research which claimed that half of 16 to 24-year-olds use stream-ripping tools to copy music from sites like YouTube.

 The industry group said that the problem of stream-ripping has become so serious that in volume terms it had overtaken downloading from 'pirate' sites. 

Given today's breaking news, the timing of the report was no coincidence. 

Earlier today in a California District Court, a huge coalition of recording labels sued the world's largest YouTube ripping site

UMG Recordings, Capitol Records, Warner Bros, Sony Music, Arista Records, Atlantic Records and several others claim that YouTube-MP3 (YTMP3), owner Philip Matesanz, and Does 1-10 have infringed their rights.

 The labels allege that YouTube-MP3 is one of the most popular sites in the entire world and as a result its owner, German-based company PMD Technologies UG, is profiting handsomely from their intellectual property.

 YouTube-MP3 is being sued for direct, contributory, vicarious and inducement of copyright infringement, plus circumvention of technological measures.

 Among other things, the labels are also demanding a preliminary and permanent injunction forbidding the Defendants from further infringing their rights. 

They also want YouTube-MP3's domain name to be surrendered. 

  "YTMP3 rapidly and seamlessly removes the audio tracks contained in videos streamed from YouTube that YTMP3's users access, converts those audio tracks to an MP3 format, copies and stores them on YTMP3's servers, and then distributes copies of the MP3 audio files from its servers to its users in the United States, enabling its users to download those MP3 files to their computers, tablets, or smartphones," the complaint reads.

"Defendants are depriving Plaintiffs and their recording artists of the fruits of their labor, Defendants are profiting from the operation of the YTMP3 website.

Through the promise of illicit delivery of free music, Defendants have attracted millions of users to the YTMP3 website, which in turn generates advertising revenues for Defendants," the labels add.


On another note Google has a new app, YouTube Go, designed to broaden the accessibility of the behemoth video-sharing service. 

Designed and developed with Indian users in mind, who will be able to test the app first before a broader rollout,

YouTube Go is intended to work more effectively in areas where connectivity is more limited.

 YouTube Go allows users to save videos for offline viewing, giving options over quality and file size so it's clear how much data a download will use.

The app also allows for local sharing with nearby users without using any data.

YouTube Go builds upon the Smart Offline feature that YouTube launched first in India earlier this year.

 We’ve always believed that connectivity should not be a barrier to watching YouTube.

 In 2014 we launched YouTube Offline so you could watch videos without suffering from buffering.

" A few months ago we rolled out Smart Offline, a feature that allows you to schedule videos to be saved offline later at off-peak times, when there’s more bandwidth so data is faster and cheaper.

 But we realized that for the next generation of YouTube users to fully discover all that YouTube has to offer, we had to reimagine the YouTube mobile app from the ground up. 

That’s why I and a team of engineers, designers, and researchers have been travelling to India, collecting ideas and testing prototypes with hundreds of people across 15 cities.

 They’ve helped us build a brand new YouTube app that’s faster, more relevant, and more affordable, with innovative new features. 

 Meet YouTube Go: a new YouTube app built from scratch to bring YouTube to the next generation of viewers."

Roller Coasters Could Help People Pass Kidney Stones, Says Study (nbcnews.com)

Two researchers who took science to the amusement park say they've found that a thrilling roller coaster ride just might help people shake out pesky kidney stones

 Dr. David Wartinger of Michigan State University said he'd heard patient after patient tell him about how they had passed kidney stones after riding one particular ride:

 the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad roller coaster at Walt Disney World in Orlando. 

He and a colleague, Dr. Marc Mitchell, had also seen some media reports about people who passed kidney stones while bungee jumping and riding roller coasters. 

So they decided to leave East Lansing to head to Orlando in the name of medical research.

  To simulate the human body as best they could, they made an artificial human kidney model out of clear silicone gel and loaded it up with real human kidney stones.

 They rode the roller coaster holding their kidney contraption between them in a backpack positioned at kidney height. 

They took 20 rides and noted what happened to each kidney stone. Riding in the back of the roller coaster train seemed to really knock the kidney stones out, they reported in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association.

 "Front seating on the roller coaster resulted in a passage rate of four of 24," they wrote.

 "Rear seating on the roller coaster resulted in a passage rate of 23 of 36." 

They mainly tested the one roller coaster ride, and it's a fairly simple one. 

"The Big Thunder Mountain roller coaster is not a terribly dynamic ride," Wartinger said.

 "It's not very fast. It is not very tall. It makes sharp left and right turns that have some vibration." 

Wartinger suspects many different thrill rides would have the same effect.

 "It's not like there anything unique about this one coaster," he said. 

The pair have now run their test 200 more times and say the findings are consistent. 

Now they want to try other amusement park rides.


"Ride The World Famous Kidney Shaker!" 

Custom designed to shake and quake like never before.

This Has Got To Be The Most Needed Lesson For Today's Church




This is apostolic level teaching.

 What is spirituality and what is religion?

 How do we keep from becoming legalistic and mechanical in our lives?

This teaching makes it quite clear and comprehensible.

 Most current day Christians are caught up in religious bondage of one sort or another.

I would read this over and over until it got into my spirit.

 This is the kind of teaching one would expect of an apostle.

I present to you:


A great deal of discipline and austerity will be found in the life~style of true prophets in the days to come.

 Unless they are exceedingly careful, they could fall into the trap that destroys prophets: the trap of a legalistic approach to God, thinking that this is the only way to get a Word from God.

Therefore, we must define circumcision and grace respectively, in order to measure up to what God wants and not fall back under bondage.

The fifth chapter of Paul's epistle to the Galatians is like a great charter of all liberty and grace.

Read in its entirety, verse by verse, it will be more than just a review of doctrines; it will penetrate your very being until you begin to think and feel and to react according to its phrases.

If you are not careful, these terms and phrases will only become mechanical to you; but if you absorb the meaning of them, they will become tremendously liberating.

We must be free in Christ.

 For freedom did Christ set us free (the purpose of freedom is freedom): stand fast therefore, and be not entangled again in the yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1.

Notice that bondage is defined here as a yoke.

However, the word "yoke" does not always have a negative connotation.

Paul wrote to his true "yokefellows" (Philippians 4:3).

Jesus said, "Take My yoke upon you..." (Matthew 11:29).

The yoke is pictured in the New Testament as the symbol of harnessing us for service and for the battle before us.

 It ties us irrevocably to another, to Christ, or to a fellow~worker.

 To be true yokefellows may look like bondage, but it is not.

There is a difference between a yoke of bondage, a yoke of service, and a yoke of love.

Galatians 5 deals with the origin and nature of bondage.

 Whether that bondage comes through the flesh at one extreme, or through religion, it is still the yoke of bondage.

God does not desire to see us under a yoke of bondage.

In Galatians 5, "circumcision" is applied as a term of religious bondage.

 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that, if ye receive circumcision, Christ will profit you nothing.

 No statement could be more blunt.

 What is circumcision?

 Circumcision is an outward religious sign or expression or ritual or austerity of the flesh that is given as evidence of God's acceptance.

 It may also be a rule by which one is accepted.

At the beginning, Abraham received the sign of circumcision, because he had been accepted and had received a covenant with God (Genesis 17:9-14).

 When God gave him this sign, Abraham was uncircumcised; but he received the covenant by faith.

The minute you divorce the faith of Abraham from the circumcision ritual, you have destroyed it.

Nothing profits from it; nothing of any benefit results.

Do you see why we must be careful not to set certain standards and rules and regulations whereby prophets are accepted?

God forbid that we would ever create an order of prophets who all wear sackcloth or burlap, and hold their austerity to the flesh as a sign that they are accepted by God.

The Word says that if we were to pursue such a course, Christ would profit us nothing.

 That is why Jesus condemned the Pharisees.

 There was no evidence of any spiritual walk among them, but they had all kinds of outward evidences, religious rituals and observances- pool it all together and call it circumcision.

Circumcision signifies that something has been cut off.

 Circumcision was a ritual by which the foreskin of the male was cut off.

This was supposed to be a sign of God's acceptance of Abraham and all of his descendants.

There is still disagreement about circumcision from a medical viewpoint.

 For quite a season doctors circumcised boy infants almost immediately after birth, because it could be done easily when the child was very small.

 Now there is a growing tendency to believe that the foreskin should remain and that circumcision makes no difference in promoting better health.

Circumcision came into the picture because it was originally a sign of God's favor upon Abraham and the covenant of faith that God had made with him.

But if it becomes just an austerity of the flesh to prove that a man is accepted by God, and if it is like the word "shibboleth" that at a certain time some had to pronounce to prove that they were people of God (Judges 12:6), then true freedom will not work for us.

Yea, I testify again to every man the receiveth circumcision, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.

As soon as a man attempts to please God by religious ritual, then he has to please Him in every respect.

He then loses the benefit of substitutionary righteousness, transference of righteousness, and identification with Christ's righteousness.

 He loses it all the minute he undertakes to be righteous in his own self.

A spiritual walk with God cannot be a program of discipline. It has to be an appropriation from God.

Ye are severed from Christ, ye who would be justified by the law; ye are fallen away from grace.

 Righteousness has to come from an outside source by a miracle transference of nature until you are no longer unrighteous, but righteous by virtue of a nature from an outside source.

 Otherwise, you will try to generate righteousness within yourself.

Religious people without faith set about to build up their own respectable righteousness through discipline, asserting that every day in every way they are becoming better and better.

 They would be the type that loves the recent slogan, "WWJD", (What would Jesus Do) since they are at the controls of their righteousness.

In their eyes and by the standards which they have established, they claim to be accepted by God.

That typifies the oldest religious effort there is.

 It was manifested at the tower of Babel, when men tried to build their own way up to heaven (Genesis 11:1-9).

You do not work up to God; God reaches down to you.

In no way can you come with any works of righteousness that have a merit before God.

You do not work up to the cross to receive salvation, but you surely work diligently from the cross.

As soon as God takes hold of you, you go to work.

 Because your life is redeemed, you are qualified.

But you do not work up to God.


 When God touches you, you work outward from what God has done in your life.

God lifts you to Himself, and you reach into Him.

If you try to take the stairs, you will never get there.

Take the elevator.

Take His provision.

 Be lifted into His very presence.

Paul said, "You are fallen away from grace if you believe that righteousness is generated from within you."

 No real righteousness can come forth that way.

That is why the Law was imposed in the Old Testament; every man making an effort to keep it would be proven a sinner before God.

 The Law came to give the knowledge of sin.

 If there were no Law, we would not know what sinners we really are.

 The Law came that we might see sin to be exceedingly sinful and realize that we cannot with our human nature produce in any way the righteousness that God will accept.

The Law had to come in order to reveal the fact that grace was the only route, yet invariably believers are deceived into trying to keep a few rules and regulations to be righteous (WWJD).

 You absolutely will not be righteous because you keep certain laws, even if you write your own laws (which is what many people do).

Galatians 5:5 presents the way to righteousness so simply.

 For we through the Spirit by faith wait for the hope of righteousness.

 Righteousness has to come from an outside source to our inward nature.

We do not produce it, but we actually receive righteousness from another.

Whose righteousness?

 Christ's righteousness.

 What can we do for that righteousness?


Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness (James 2:23).

God, foreseeing what He would do through Abraham, reached ahead to the work of the cross by which salvation was to come; and because Abraham was faithful to believe, God accounted the righteousness of Christ to him and laid it all before him.

 Abraham was righteous in God's sight, even though he still made many mistakes.

As we walk on with the Lord in these times, there is no reason we cannot have a far greater understanding of righteousness than Abraham had.

 This is a time that the Lord is going to rain righteousness upon us.

Hosea 10:12 says that it is time to seek the Lord until He comes and rains righteousness upon us.

 The work that Christ does in the earth will be finished quickly in righteousness (Romans 9:28).

 The King James version says that He will cut it short in righteousness.

We may need to increase austerity and discipline in our approach to God, but this does not mean that we can attain righteousness through that.

We must discipline ourselves to the course of faith and to the course of grace, not to the course of law. Let us give ourselves over to the grace of God and believe for Him to rain righteousness upon us.

The Body of Christ today will not be focused on cleaning itself from the little problems of people who walk into the spiritual sanctuary of God with "muddy feet."

 Those who come from a background of sin where they have become tolerant of sin and abounding inquity and the changing moral standards often do not even have a conscience about sin.

When they finally come to God, they trample into the holiest of holies with very "muddy feet."

 But God says to them, "I will make you clean and righteous. What counts now is not what you were, but what I am going to rain upon you. I will give you My righteousness."

We shall never be able to come into true righteousness by all sorts of discipline.

Although we are not under the Law but under the grace of God, and God does not look upon us to enforce little rules and regulations, yet God's sense of righteousness and holiness remains the same whether we are under the Law or under grace.

 What God wants out of us does not fluctuate.

God looks at a the man who is under the Law and He says, "You will never make it because your righteousness is like filthy rags" (Isaiah 64:6).

He looks at the man who sees grace as only an excuse to cover up his sin nature, and He says, "That is not grace either."

Grace brings a hope of righteousness and a faith.

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision (the austerity of the flesh that tries to please God) availeth anything, nor uncircumcision.

The Christian world is filled with people who through the years have taken truths from the Word of God, and instead of finding the spirit of them, they let them deteriorate into a legalistic observance.

 For instance, some people cling to religious modes of dress.

Such customs have become to them like circumcision, a sign of goodness that they hold; but in truth they are filthy rags.

 Christ said that the outward appearance of the pharisee is like a whited sepulchre, beautifully polished but rotten inside, filled with dead men's bones (Matthew 23:27).

Inside is the filth and the evil just the same.

We certainly do not want that form of deceit. Dead men's bones are dead men's bones.

Whether you polish the outside of the tomb of circumcision, or rip it open and let the bones lie there in plain sight, they are still filthy bones.

The basic nature of sin is still there.

If circumcision does not avail anything, and uncircumcision does not avail anything, then what does?

 But faith working through love.

Believe God.

 Take hold of God, and let Him transform you.

You can change, but because of willpower and a regimentation of your thinking and of your life.

You will change because you are going to be a believer.

When you believe, God's nature will be given to you and imparted to you.

All change comes from outside of you.

 It is not generated within you.

 It comes to you, and it is put within you; then it grows and develops.

God gives you a transplant of righteousness.

 He takes out of you a heart of stone, and he puts in you a heart of flesh (Ezekiel 36:26).

He takes out the heart of wickedness, and he puts in another heart.

Medical science has begun to make heart transplants, but God was doing this first.

 He promises to take out of you what is wrong and put in you of Himself what is right.

 God imparts and imputes His righteousness to you.

God sees you functioning with His heart, His faith, and walking in His righteousness, and He exclaims, "That is better!" 

You look up and say, "I love you, Jesus." 

And He responds, "You love Me because I first loved you. If I had not beamed My love to you, it would not have transformed you.

You are only loving me back with my own love. You are believing with My faith. You are walking in My righteousness and in My holiness. You are moving in My power and in My grace."

This is what is acceptable in the sight of God.

This is righteousness that you want. God wants to bring it forth in you.

 See it!

Embrace it to your heart!

Let the Lord minister to you and make it alive to you.

We seem to sense our total dependency on God's grace in elementary salvation, but then we forget it.

We start a new life in the grace of God, but later we tend to think that it is all up to us.

There is an austerity and a diligence that we must exercise, and the Word constantly exhorts us to that.

 The only caution is not to go back to deadly legalism, thinking that we can produce righteousness of God.

The Galatians fell into a great deal of difficulty when they forgot that the only thing that works is faith working by love.

 Paul wrote to them, "Ye were running well; who hindered you that ye should not obey the truth?"

 He looked at all of the Galatians who had fallen, and he said, "You were doing well running the race. Who tripped you? God did not trip you. These hindrances must have come from some other source."

Hindrances come from the devil and from our own flesh. If we are not open to them, we will not be subject to them.

Above everything else, remember that Satan is a religious spirit who comes as an angel of light, and his ministers are transformed as ministers of righteousness (II Corinthians 11:14).

There will be those who will rise up full of the devil, using their egotistical religious judgment to condemn those who are really walking with their God.

 Satan will be walking around in men who appear as ministers of righteousness.

That is the way the devil comes.

More people will go to hell over religion than will ever go to hell over sin.

 Would you like to have that explained?

First of all, sin is sin, and every human born is shaped in iniquity; thus all are assumed to be condemned already (Psalm 51:5).

But how many will go to hell as sinners with a focus on religious observances which make them think they are going in the right direction?

That is where the great multitudes are being deceived.

 Everyone has some kind of religion, even atheists.

 The Russians who do not believe in God are building seminaries that train people not to worship God.

 Representatives of the Greek Orthodox Church of Russia are predominant in the World Council of Churches.

 Men raised and steeped in atheism are controlling many Christian churches.

Years ago, a preacher came to a sawmill to preach.

 The lumberjacks were rough, accustomed to going into town to carouse and drink, and they did not want to hear any preacher tell them that they were sinners.

 But they agreed to listen the next Sunday if they could give him the subject.

 The deal was settled.

The next Sunday the lumberjacks all sat down and said, Reverend, we decided that you are to preach on the subject, "To hell with Religion."

 That was like baiting a bear, and so the preacher then preached on how people were going to hell with religion.

It is not how orthodox you are that counts; it is how transformed you are.

 A man may be very orthodox in his style of religion and adhere to it very closely; yet all his he is doing is going through an outward religious sign or ritual or austerity of the flesh as his evidence to the world that he is accepted by God.

But God does not accept that, and such a man will go to hell with religion.

Paul wrote to the Galatians, "You were running well, Who tripped you?" 

When you slip back into that legalistic pattern, you will fall on your face every time.

 He asked, "Where is the joy? Where is the blessedness that you spoke of?" (Galatians 4:15).

They were once bubbling over with joy.

Whenever God is performing a work in your life, there is joy and a rejoicing in everything.

When that goes, it is just a heavy burden, and you are carrying your heaven on your shoulders.

This persuasion came not of him that calleth you. (It did not come from God.)

 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.

 Every time we see that little leaven of legalism, it should strike a godly fear in our hearts.

How we must keep it out before it permeates everything!

 It reaches through to a person's spirit.

 You can see it in a person, but you do not know how to stamp it out.

 Even after almost all of it has come out, the little that remains will start festering again and corrupt the whole nature of that person.

Legalism is deadly, because it is the lie of Satan, which says that the flesh can religiously produce righteousness.

The lie of the devil says that if you try real hard, you can produce righteousness.

 It is true that we must bear hard on the way that we live and the way that we walk, but it cannot be with a legalism to produce righteousness.

 Instead, we must refuse to give expression to the flesh, in order that we might seek God according to the Spirit and receive.

 There must be a great deal of worship and appropriation.

The idea must always be in your mind that by the grace of God His prophets will come forth.

An end~time apostolic company will be a ministry of grace in the earth.

If you produce everything that legalism can produce, you have conformed to a certain straitjacket of conduct, and you do not violate it.

You have the old nature harnessed up.

You are able to name a long list of sins, though it be a vast catalog, and say, "I am not guilty of doing any of these things. I am in my religious straitjacket which I have worked hard to produce."

That is like trying to manufacture a living person.

 Suppose all the necessary tissue and the flesh were somehow put together; there is still the problem that no one has breathed into him the breath of life.

 There is no generation of divine nature in him.

If he can go through the motions he is still an imitation.

We may be able to produce something and say, "see, God, we have measured right up. We have everything here."

Will He accept that?


 The artificially good man is a foreign and a strange thing to be banished from His sight, because it is not His creation.

 If we are anything at all, we are a new creation (II Corinthians 5:17).

If we are not that, we are nothing.

We are to be a new creation of God, created in Christ Jesus unto good works (Ephesians 2:10).

 It is true that the growth and development of our natural bodies depend upon the way we eat and the way we exercise.

To grow spiritually, we must learn the rhythm of drawing from God and ministering out; then drawing from God and ministering out.

 Soon we will find ourselves growing.

Exercise is a factor in our growth in the grace of God, but it remains exactly that- a growth in the grace of God.

 It is not a legalistic conformity we adhere to, until we produce something that looks like God.

 A new creation will not just look like God; it will be God!

It is very difficult even for an Evangelical Fundamentalist to grasp this truth.

Many are still trying to imitate Christ in every way.

That is where their doctrine breaks down. Paul said, "For me to live is Christ" (Notice: is Christ). Philippians 1:21.

 In other words. "I am appropriating Him in everything I do.

When I am running, I am running in Jesus; I am not running for Jesus. 

When I preach, it is Christ within me coming forth.

 I am not working for the Lord."

Many young converts want to go out and work for the Lord.

 They want to go out in the harvest field and work for Jesus.

He does not need anyone to work for Him; He just needs someone to be a channel through whom He can work. Jesus wants to work through you!

There is a difference!

 Although it looks like the same, there is as much difference as between night and day.

Take a close look at the man who is out working for Jesus.

He may have the right expression on his face; he may look more religious and more spiritual than those through whom Christ is working because they are relaxed.

They do not wear a certain pained expression.

They are not bound in a disciplined straitjacket.

 They are free.

 Every time they breath, they are breathing Jesus.

 Every time they speak, they speak Jesus.

They do not pray for God to do something; they stand with Christ who proclaims it through them.

 They are moving in God, and God is moving in them.

By the time Paul had reached the ninth verse, all the prophets had been convinced to go the route of grace, and so he continued: "I have confidence to you~ward in the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.

 But I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still persecuted? then hath the stumbling~block of the cross been done away." Galatians 5:10,11.

 That stumbling block of the cross comes when you believe for the imparted righteousness.

Who are the legalists?

Anyone who is persecuting the living Word of grace.

 The reproach, the stumbling block of the cross, is on those who walk by grace.

 What is the real message of the cross?

 To believe that you morbidly go through the sufferings for the work of the cross is a distortion of truth.

The work of the cross and what Christ did in the cross are rarely understood by people.

The stumbling block of the cross should be defined.

The Lord laid upon Jesus the iniquity of us all (Isaiah 53:6).

Christ suffered vicariously on our behalf.

The cross was an instrument by which one man suffered for all of us.

One man was suffering for the sins of another, in order that He could see those sins forgiven and put the man in the place where, without condemnation, He could minister life from God to him; and that man could become a new creature.

As the work of the cross is being done in you and you suffer, you are not dying, but you are appropriating Christ's death.

 What you suffer in the work of the cross is just God putting pressures on you to push you to the place where you will appropriate the merits of His death and submit to an experience of His death.

 It is the work of His cross in you.

 Never get the idea that it is your cross, or you will go back to a legalistic effort which believes, "Well, Christ died; now I have to go and die too." 

No, you have to appropriate His death.

 Do you understand the difference?

The work of the cross takes place under pressures that God puts on you so that you will not stop short of going right on to the perfection and the resurrection life that He has provided for you.

You are not really dying, though you may feel as if you are dying.

The symptoms are all the same because the pressure is on you.

You are put under such pressure that nothing of the carnal life is worth living for.

You are forced to appropriate more of Him.

Necessity places you where you need something from Him so desperately that you reach out and grab it from Him.

 Afterwards, you strut around, saying, "You know, I had a real meeting with God. 

You would just be amazed to see what the Lord made so real to me.

 It was wonderful!"

 The Lord looks down and chuckles, "If I had not put him in a vice and squeezed him, he would not have hollered and cried to Me, and his heart would not have been met like that."

The work of the cross is found in the pressures of the Spirit of God upon you to get you to appropriate the full measure of the sufferings of Christ on your behalf.

Paul said, "If I am preaching circumcision, then why am I being persecuted?" 

Pharisees are never persecuted. No one ever persecuted the legalist's circumcision.

 They experience a little trouble now and then over minor things, but there is no real persecution against them.

 Persecution comes upon the people who are on the trail of true righteousness, because they come forth with real righteousness.

The other people look at their own substitutions; and knowing that they do not have true righteousness, they get angry at those who have it.

Why did Cain persecute his brother?

 Because his own deeds were unrighteous and his brother's were righteous.

Do not think that Cain was not religious.

He brought the fruit of the earth to the altar, and he must have had quite a display.

 He went through the motions, probably calling on God, "O God, be pleased and look at what I am doing!"

Meanwhile Abel was being exceedingly blessed because he approached God in the right way.

So Cain, because his own deeds were unrighteous and his brother's were righteous, persecuted him (Genesis 4:1-11).

The pattern is always the same.

Persecution comes from people who are religious against people who are spiritual.

The people who are religious condemn the people who are spiritual, but they do not condem the people out in the world, no matter how wicked they are.

The wicked are not a challenge to the ones who esteem themselves to be religiously superior.

 A man never persecutes those who in his opinion are inferior.

He tends to be condescending and tolerant of the man who he thinks is on a lesser scale then he himself.

 He always persecutes the one who he knows has the truth.

 II Timothy 3:12 gives the reason behind the persecution: ...all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

Galatians 5:12 defines what the circumcision party was in the mind of Paul.

 "I would that they that unsettle you would even go beyond circumcision (an entire cutting off of the unit).

The New American Standard Bible says, would even mutilate themselves.

 In other words, if they want to be religious, let them be extremely religious.

"For ye, brethren, were called for freedom. 

Freedom from what?

 Freedom from the religious program, freedom from the circumcision bondage, freedom from the yoke of bondage, as it is identified at the beginning of the chapter and described thereafter in every verse.

"Only use not your freedom for an occasion of the flesh." 

You were called to be free.

 Even though you are not bound by some legalistic discipline in a religious sense, be careful that your freedom is not diverted to an occasion to the flesh.

Years ago, young people who were raised under legalism dressed austerely and always had a chaperone when they went on dates.

 They could hardly even hold hands.

Where that no longer exists, what will happen to those who go out and cuddle for a while, thinking they are free?

 In their so~called freedom, they will awaken the flesh.

Where circumcision does not avail anything, uncircumcision surely does not either. Only a new creature, only a new creation, avails anything.

You can tempt the flesh and give an occasion to the flesh and fall right back into sin.

Just because you are not on a religious course of legalism does not mean that you cannot fall into a pitfall on the other side.

There is only one way that you can go~ by the grace of God and becoming a whole new creature.

Faith which works by love brings freedom. Only do not use your freedom for an occasion to the flesh.

Why is that so many single girls lose their virtue in the bedroom?

A girl can blame the man who tempted and seduced her, but she had no right to be there with him.

 Stay away from the occasion to the flesh. That is not legalism; that is just good sense.

"But through love be servants one to another."

That is the whole purpose of our freedom.

One of the best safeguards we have is that we can take our liberty and determine how to use it.

We are free to become servants of one another.

That is the approach that should exist even in courtship.

 If people are drawn together by a mutual attraction, it indicates an inferior relationship.

It is better if they are drawn together by the manifestations of God's love, rather than a fleshly capacity of love.

Christian girls who seem to be attractive are the handmaidens to the Body of Christ.

 Likewise, Christian men who seem to be desirable are not those with the image of a seducer, but men who serve the people of God.

  The divine love that emanates from them draws every relationship that exists in their lives into a rightness before God, because they have used their liberty to choose to be servants of one another.

There are new standards of acceptance among the members of Christ's Body.

We shall look to see the emanating love of a new nature in a brother.

 We shall look to see the evidence of grace, the faith that is working by love.

 We will see the liberty that has deliberately chosen the bond~servant role to fulfill.

 These will be the qualities to look for in one another.

"For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, even this: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

 But if you bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another."

 Love edifies and constantly makes an addition of Christ to your brother.

 It constantly appropriates more of Christ in yourself. But criticism and viciousness that exist in your spirit and your attitude becomes destructive.

The Body of Christ is self~destroyed if we bite and devour one another and are consumed one of another.

"But I say, Walk by the Spirit, and ye will not fulfill the lust of the flesh."

 As we come up into the realm of grace and learn how to walk in the Spirit of the Lord, what takes place for us then?

 The mechanism for the fulfillment of the flesh disconnects within us.

The Bible tells us how this mechanism works.

 When lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin; sin, when it has had it's perfect work, bringeth forth death (James 1:15).

So all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, the pride of life, starts a certain process going (I John 2:16).

A man is just as good as dead if he gets on the first rung of the ladder - that particular process by which his old flesh leads him to sin - because he will surely climb right to the top and jump off.

It is not legalism for a man who has been an alcoholic to know that he should not even smell a cork, let alone go to a party where drinks will be given to him; he knows better.

 He knows that he must not take that first step, or else the lust will start to conceive, and it will bring forth one sin after another.

The next thing he knows, he will be hopelessly lost in it.

 So he does not give an occasion to Instead, he spends his time worshiping the Lord.

He walks in the Spirit, and he does not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

He does not walk into the area where that first trigger will be pulled, that first domino will be toppled.

A man who knows that he is weak morally does not allow himself to be in a situation where the sparks start flying, where he knows that he is already set to commit fornication before he is through with that route.

  He does not want to sin against God and make a bond that will be destructive to his walk with God, and then have a difficult recovery.

 If he knows better, he wears blinders against such a situation.

That is not legalism; it is just good sense.

 He knows that he cannot start out on a toboggan and decide to slide for only ten feet.

He knows that if he goes ten feel, he will go all the way to the finish before he stops.

So it is not legalistic for him to declare, " I am going to walk in the Spirit, and I will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh."

 It is just that certain. "I will walk with God, and I will be interceding and praying."

Intercession for today's apostolic company to come forth has resulted in more people being liberated from the bondages of flesh then every before.

When they spend all night praying, they are too tired afterwards to think about the things of the flesh.

They are rejoicing in the will of God.

They are sowing to Spirit, and they are reaping life everlasting (Galatians 6:8).

 If they had been sowing to the flesh, that is what they would reap.

One reason that laziness is closely aligned with sin is that laziness invariably throws a person into the place where the first trigger is pulled.

Lazy people have little resistance to sin, because they are constantly exposed to the things in the flesh that trigger off the actions and reactions in the fleshly world.

 A man who is busy serving God is able to subordinate every instinct of the flesh, every process of his body, and bring them into subjection.

 In his dedication to walk with God and to walk in the Spirit, everything else is completely dominated.

Walk in the Spirit, and you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.

This is grace; it is not legalism..

Ask the Lord to make this real to you and to teach you to walk in the Spirit.

For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are contrary to the one to the other; that ye may not do the things that y would.

 But if ye are led by the Spirit, ye are not under the law (Galatians 5:17,18).

You are not under the law if you are led by the Spirit of the Lord. Galatians 5 contrasts a man who is spiritual with a man who is religious.

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these: fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry.

  These sins have a religious origin.

Do not think that the flesh cannot be religious.

 Your religious instinct comes from the flesh; it does not come from the spirit.

 Sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousies, wraths, factions, divisions (denominationalism and everything that divides the Body of Christ is included here), parties (a kind of divisive spirit), envyings, drunkenness, revelings and such like; of which I forewarn you, even as I did forewarn you, that they who practice such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

 Verses 19-21.

 The flesh leads a person into these things.

But what does walking in the Spirit and walking in the grace of God lead us to?

 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, self-control.

Self-control is not another legalistic measure.

 It is one things to be legalistic, and it is another thing to be in complete control of every faculty, every desire, every interest, every function and every instinct of one's self.

 By the Holy Spirit you become completely able to walk as a new creature coming forth in Christ.

Against such there is not law.

You are not under the law, because you are actually motivated by godly incentives that are not controlled by man.

 The flesh is motivated by motivations that have to be controlled.

Lust leads to fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry.

All these things are the instincts of the flesh, and they must by regulated.

 Consequently, in ancient times every such work of the flesh was under control.

 In this sophisticated day, sorcery or witchcraft in America is not put under the category of the works of the flesh to be regulated by laws.

Nevertheless, when it is operating, the individuals involved often break certain other laws for which they can be prosecuted.

The law is set to keep down everything that the flesh produces.

Almost all works of the flesh are put under some kind of law or control.

Every government has had to enact laws to control the weaknesses of the flesh.

 However, no government that exists at the present time should control the way that people worship God.

 Someone who moves in the Spirit with pure love finds the will of the Lord and conforms to all the divine principles which are not under the law.

The civil law cannot make any rule about them.

 There is no law about joy.

You can be just as joyful as you want to be.

You can draw in the Holy Spirit and be completely filled with joy, for there is no law against it.

What about peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, and faithfulness?

No one has invented a law to regulate any of these yet.

That is why Paul said that against such there is no law.

And they that are of Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with the passions and the lusts thereof.

 If we live by the Spirit, by the Spirit let us also walk.

 Let us not become vainglorious, provoking one another, envying one another.

This is the way to pursue a life in the Spirit.

We are not to be just a free, happy-go-lucky people, but we must seek to walk in God and have this faith which will become very real to us.
 Corinthians at approximately the same time, telling them that he brought his body into subjection in order to fight a good fight and not be as one who beat the air (I Corinthians 9:26,27)
The same apostle who wrote this epistle to the Galatians also wrote to the Corinthians.

The Apostle Paul was determined.

He placed a discipline upon his body, but only so that he could do the will of God.

 It was not to merit favor with God.

 It was not a religious form of circumcision or a religious, fleshly austerity.

He disciplined his body to make it serve him.

All of us would be wise to follow Paul's example.

We want God to direct us in finding ways to promote our health and strength.

But the objective is not just to be healthy, but to be able to handle the whole flow of ministry that God would require of us.

 For instance, we do not want to be subject to headaches when we want to move in revelation.

 We want our bodies to be able to serve the Lord, to be temples of the Hold Spirit (I Corinthians 6:19).

We may not end up health food faddists, but we certainly do not want to be junk food addicts either.

Let us look to the Lord to teach us how to take care of our bodies.

By revelation, born of the Spirit of the Lord, we can set ourselves to become today's prophets of God in the earth.

That is grace.

It may look like the same kind of discipline that the legalist has, but the legalist goes nowhere with his discipline because it is sterile and abortive.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh.

 A boar and a sow will never produce anything else but PIGS, PIGS, PIGS!

Likewise, that which is born of the flesh is FLESH, FLESH, FLESH!

It may be legalistic and disciplined, but it cannot rise to the new level of life, because you cannot generate and produce that.

 Your flesh can produce nothing but religious flesh, It just gets a little m ore religious and little fleshy the harder you try, but it is still PIGS, PIGS, PIGS!

But that which is born of the Spirit is SPIRIT!

Reach out for the grace of God, because what has to come forth is GOD!

 Not PIGS, but GOD!

We have to born of the Spirit.

 This sets our goal.

As we walk with God, having come out of that which has religious contamination in it, we must beware that we do not become smug, because we still may have some of it in ourselves.

Just because we climb up twenty feet, and look back over where we have bee, does not mean that we do not have a long climb to go before we really understand how to appropriate grace perfectly.

We must be careful not to compare ourselves among ourselves, but to see how God is speaking to us specifically (II Corinthians 10:12).

There may still be too much legalism left in our walk with the Lord for us really to break through to the miracle that God is to do through us.

Let us very diligently and personally seek the face of the Lord on this, for just a little leaven will leaven the whole lump.

It does not take much.

Seek God to take it all out.

Lord, we thank You for purchasing this wonderful priceless freedom that we have in Christ.

Thank You for Your righteousness.

We believe.

We know that Your grace is sufficient.

2 Corinthians 12:9 "And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
