The World's Hardest Foot Race Ever Is The Most Secret.

The Barkley Marathons: 

The Race That Eats Its Young(2014) the hardest trail race in the world that you have never heard of; in its first 25 years, only 10 people had finished it.

The documentary follows the story of unlikely athletes pushing themselves to their limits.

SpaceX Is Livestreaming A Hyperloop Pod Competition (spacex.com)

SpaceX is livestreaming a competition between hyperloop pods from outside their headquarters in Hawthorne, California, and at least one Los Angeles newspaper is also covering the event live on Facebook.


 "This competition is the first of its kind anywhere in the world," SpaceX writes, noting that 27 teams put their pods through a "litany" of pre-qualifying tests hoping to qualify for a run on the track on "Rocket Road".

An anonymous reader writes: The mile-long track is "roughly half the width of a full-scale Hyperloop system," according to Fortune -- but it's still a near-total vacuum inside, making it possible for the magnetically-levitated pods to attain extremely high speeds.

 "The winning team will be the one that hits the highest top speed -- then stops before hitting the end of the tube.

 'There'll be a bit of tension," Elon Musk mused. 

'Will it brake in time?'" Sunday's event "will mark the first time anyone gets to see the Hyperloop pods in action," according to Business Insider, which has photos and descriptions of the 27 pods -- including the MIT Hyperloop and the crowdfunded non-profit rLoop.
 
SpaceX will also host a second competition will be held this summer focused on one criterion: speed.

The Rapture


Let us consider the Rapture Index. 


This is a real thing prepared by serious Biblical people.
 
 If it makes you laugh, you have not gotten the memo. 
 
You probably have not read any of the 12 volumes of the "Left Behind" series, the best-selling books in America today. 
 
Those Left Behind are those who did not experience the Rapture, which is an instant in time when all the truly holy people are taken directly to heaven, leaving their clothes in small neat piles behind them. 
 
The rest of the ungodly stubborn losers are left to deal with natural disasters and wars and the armies of the Antichrist, after which they die in various colorful ways while the ranks of the saved watch with compassion.
 
The Rapture Index, as of this writing, stands at 153.
 
 Anything over 145 is labeled by the Rapture Actuaries as "Fasten your seat belts." In other words: 
 
Repent for the End Is Near.
  "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" Acts 16:30

#183 Brant Baker Shekinah Fellowship "Understand your own weakness." 6-28-83

Why am I putting Brant Baker's preaching from Shekinah Fellowship on the internet?

What I looked like when Brant Baker first met me.

My name is David Sloane.


I was first introduced to Brant by Lonnie Frisbee at Brant's clothing store on 17th street in Costa Mesa.

( Lonnie was my "spiritual father" in the Lord. )

Ya...I know...Brant always told people that it was in Newport Beach...but it wasn't actually.

It was on the border between the two cities.

A few years after I having met Brant, a girl, Sandie Hoxhurst, told me about an anointed man of God in Long Beach CA.

We were in Laguna Beach, where I lived in Woodland drive, at 1195 Victory Walk.
David Sloane And Friend Karen

I was 20 at that time.

David Sloane with Gary and Larry Arthur
Sandie drove me and another guy to Long Beach on a Saturday night.

 We were at a small store front on 7th street.

Inside there was a small stage in one corner.

The room was dark and there were lights pointing at the man on the stage.

Brant in his puffy sleeve white shirt.
He had a white puffy shirt on and black slacks and was well groomed, unlike us hippie kids from Laguna.

The place was packed with people that night.

The man spoke on one small scripture, These therefore came to Philip, who was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying: Sir, we would see Jesus.

John 12:21

Here I am now 66 years old and I can still vividly recall that night and the sermon, it was that powerful!

I couldn't believe how anointed the man of God was, his every word had incredible impact upon his audience.

Soon the room was heavy with the manifested presence of the Holy Spirit, Whom I knew well.

How could one simple scripture hold so much power and anointing that was evident in the room.


I was deeply impacted as was everyone else present.

Suddenly it dawned on me that this was the same guy from the clothing store in Costa Mesa!

Needless to say I made the long trek from Laguna Beach to Long Beach every Saturday night to experience what this man of God presented.

It wasn't until Shekinah Fellowship had moved to pastor Billy Adams church that I got to speak with Brant one on one face to face in the fellowship hall.

Brant said to me, "David, you belong in this ministry."

My twenty year old mind did not get a witness to that either way.

So in my hippie way, at that time, I just let it slide and remained in Laguna Beach and continued my street evangelism ministry.

I would fill my hippie van to capacity and bring anyone I could to Brant's Saturday night meetings.
Hare Krisna Saffron Robed man.
I even brought a saffron robed Hare Krisna man to one meeting.

He was so confused after having experience the power of God during that healing ministry night.

It wasn't until after I had uploaded my first Brant Baker video to the net that those long forgotten words of Brant's came streaming crystal clear back to me.

As I sat in my chair watching the video on the Internet, the Holy Spirit pressed down upon me heavy and Brant's words were reviewed to me.

Tears uncontrollably streamed down my face as I realized that neither Brant nor i  had understood the full impact of his words to me so long ago.

Do you know what it is like to have the "real of God" impact you in a moments time?

I thought about how there were no computers, cell phones or Internet when Brant spoke those words to me.

But there I was in front of a computer and I had uploaded a Brant Baker video to the Internet.

Then I knew.

I was called to bring "extension of presence" for Brant even though he had passed on.

Brant is absent but his preaching ministry can now go on to generations beyond his own life time.

A new generation will get to hear his preaching as well as all of us old timers who were originally there.

I will continue to do my best to get as many of his tapes up on line as I can.

Currently i am going through quite a few health issues, so like apostle Paul, I ask for your prayers that I might be healed and able to continue what I have started.

Of course there have been my detractors who have said bad things about me and those who have participated in this Internet ministry.

Stuff like,"Your just trying to become somebody by using Brant's coat tails etc..."

Nothing could be further from the truth.

I loved Brant and Shekinah Fellowship.

I loved the manifested presence of the Holy Spirit at Shekinah Fellowships services.

I craved it.

I had no knowledge about what transpired within that ministry since i was only a faithful "attendee" back then.


When I initially tried to contact some of those who were in that ministry, I was met with resistance.

Randy West sent a message through a third party telling me to leave him alone, he wanted nothing to do with me.

I was flabbergasted to say the least.

I knew Randy and even talked with him when he worked at Hover Printing in Costa Mesa.

At that time I was shocked to see him working there and no longer in the ministry of Shekinah Fellowship.

It was he who kind of indicated that things were not well at Shekinah Fellowship, but he would not give me any details at all.

I now know what happened behind the scenes of Shekinah Fellowship from all of the emails to me and people I was able to speak with over the years.

I tried to reach Joe Dallas with Pastor Tilson Shumate, but Joe only wanted to meet in the controlled environment of his office and not on neutral territory as it were.

Both Pastor Tilson and i felt that the Holy Spirit was indicating to cancel that meeting because Joe was going to control it.

Tilson and I would always speak with people in neutral territory for all parties involved for a balanced comfortable conversation.

Pastor Jim Ewing has been an incredible researcher and has dug up information and audio tapes of the ministry.

I want to say that with each tape I upload to the Internet, the "views" tally quickly surges up into the hundreds.

Which indicates to me that people are getting fed by Brant's preaching once again as planned so long ago by the Holy Spirit!

Strange thing though, YouTube views tally is artificially low on the videos on their own website while my blogs stats represent how many times the videos are actually being watched, which has been into the hundreds.

I think it might be something to do with how the videos are being accessed or some kind of Internet tech stuff of a sort.

Anyway, if your blessed by Brant's preaching, won't you let me know in the comments section below?

It's always nice to hear from others and to receive encouragement from them.

One lady who had commented was very angry and said vile things in the comment sections of the videos on YouTube so I was forced by her venom to have YouTube block her from being able to comment there.

As I type this my laptop is whirring away processing another video to up-load today.


It takes hours to record the tapes to digital and to try and clean them up as best as possible then add the audio to video so I can upload them to YouTube.

This is work.

And it is good.

Pray that the Lord blesses this work that i freely do, desiring nothing in return.

All I ask is that you pass along these videos to others through all of the media channels available to you personally so that a new generation can get real Holy Spirit inspired teaching instead of some of the crap coming from America's mega church pulpits today!

Play your part in this ministry please.

I am doing what I can and now it is your turn.

Draw your own conclusions if you will...

En Agape'

Brant Baker Shekinah Fellowship Long Beach "Without doing a thing Jesus paid it all!" #608 8-11-84

Vicarious Paramotor "Scout" Ride

First Human-Pig 'Chimera' Created in Milestone Study (theguardian.com)

Scientists have created a human-pig hybrid in a milestone study that raises the prospect of being able to grow human organs inside animals for use in transplants.

From a report: 


It marks the first time that embryos combining two large, distantly-related species have been produced

The creation of this so-called chimera -- named after the cross-species beast of Greek mythology -- has been hailed as a significant first step towards generating human hearts, livers and kidneys from scratch. 

Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte, who led the work on the part-pig, part-human embryos at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California, said:

 "The ultimate goal is to grow functional and transplantable tissue or organs, but we are far away from that. This is an important first step." 

The study has reignited ethical concerns that have threatened to overshadow the field's clinical promise. 

The work inevitably raises the spectre of intelligent animals with humanised brains and also the potential for bizarre hybrid creatures to be accidentally released into the wild. 

The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) placed a moratorium on funding for the controversial experiments last year while these risks were considered.

***

It is interesting that these Frankenstein dudes always mention and say stuff like:


 "The ultimate goal is to grow functional and transplantable tissue or organs, but we are far away from that. This is an important first step." 

No one ever talks about bridging the God ordained safety gap between animal illnesses and human illnesses.

This kind of messing around with God's creation could quite possibly lead to pandemic, epidemics of infectious disease that might spread through human populations across a large region; for instance multiple continents, or even worldwide.

But: 

 "The ultimate goal is to grow functional and transplantable tissue or organs, but we are far away from that. This is an important first step." 

As if their bazaar experiments should be permitted.

God is not behind their actions!

The bible clearly states that as in the days of Noah so shall the last days be...

Go ahead and click on the above link and learn the truth of what is going on now

As in the days of Noah: Is history repeating itself with manipulation of human genes?

They apparently modified a gene in a number of embryos thought to cause disease.

 It is less than exacting because of the 28 embryos they tampered with only seven attempts were successful.

This is the first time that scientists have openly admitted to modifying human genes is an effort to create “designer” humans, even though in this instance the embryos did not survive, or so they said.

Three weeks earlier in a letter to Science a group of scientists hearing rumors this was happening came out publicly opposing gene manipulation in humans.

They don’t want it monitored.

They want it stopped.

An Incredible Innovative Life Guard Tool That I want To See In Usage At Every Public Beach



Self propelled life guard bouy

Mavericks
North Shore
Jaws

This thing could be deployed from Jet Skis where ever surfers are in big waves.

It has real potential.

A remote control thumbstick gives an operator the ability to drive it as a small watercraft - and it's quite nippy as it makes its way across the water.

It looks like about the quickest way we can imagine to get a piece of lifesaving gear out to a distressed person in the water, particularly in difficult surf.

Once a victim has been reached, the U-safe has enough power to help drag them back toward safety - which could make it very handy on large ships that might have to launch a rescue boat otherwise.

Pastor Jim Ewing "Cisterns that hold no water."

In A Dry Parched Land Nothing Is Worse Than...

Cisterns that hold no water


Dear people of God, I was literally in tears as I prepared this message today.

Looking out at the Body of Christ, and especially at the leadership- not with a critical eye, but with an aching heart- I am weeping with the prophet Jeremiah, "My people have committed two sins: 

They have forsaken Me, the Spring of Living Water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water" (Jeremiah 2:13).

I pray as I give this message that it is received by believers as their hearts are reaching out to Christ in the most sincere way, that they- WE- all of us together- would seek nothing but His Own Heart at this very moment...

In the passage here, God's heart is grieved as He watches His own people seeking after other things than Himself.

 He knows that only HE is the true spring of living water. He created man with an unquenchable need for Him, and we were designed in a way that we require Him ultimately and Him alone.

 He knew that nothing of our own devises would ever satisfy the genuine longing that He put in our heart for Him, yet here He is, watching His beloved children attempt do just that...

Now Jeremiah, as you know, was called 'the weeping prophet' because he could actually feel the pain in God's heart for His wayward people, as he was constantly calling them back to Him.

 It was a very deep, intimate calling that Jeremiah had. It was also very intense and painful, but it was God's call on his life, and he was faithful in it throughout his life.

 "They have forsaken Me, the Spring of Living Water, and have dug THEIR OWN cisterns- BROKEN cisterns that CANNOT hold water".

What was a cistern for? For holding water!

What can you do with a broken one?
\
 Leaving God and going our own way, even in 'small areas' in our life, will always prove to be a 'broken cistern'- always!.....

I have watched as some of Christanity's leaders today- people who probably started out with a passion for Christ and Him alone, falling prey to the 'good life', the 'comfortable life', the 'way of least resistance', or the 'prosperous' life.

They got a taste of the gold, and slowly began to go after it, then they began to run after it, then to crave it. 


They have forgotten their Lord, though they use His name all day long!

They have dug their own cisterns, and all the while God's heart grieves for them!

Look at Israel throughout the old testament- starting with God's promise, then bragging that "we will do all that the Lord our God has told us!", then falling away and following their own devises- again and again and again.

 Turning their backs on the very One who would gladly have given them all their heart's desires if they would only seek Him... yet their God would bring them back every time, many times through extreme pain and suffering....

I'll tell you that today's new believers are being cheated!

 How will they grow in grace?

How will they stay passionate about their Savior when God's 'leaders' have gone their own way?

Where is the proclamation of the cross?

 Why won't God's ministers preach Christ as He is, not as we would have Him?

 How will the Savior's wonderful Presence ever come forth, when His preachers are more interested in manufacturing their own cheap imitation of it?

 Who are they fooling? Beloved, the world TODAY needs to see Jesus!

Not our own impression or imitation of Him, but HIM!

He is here, and He is here now! Covet His Presence in your life, and covet to have the grace to show Him to others.

Only He can heal this lost world.

Look only to Him.

En Agape',
Pastor Jim Ewing

Bol Bol has finally been cleared by the CIF to play high school basketball in the state of California. 


Bol transferred to Mater Dei but had to sit out for the beginning of the season.

 Today he came out with a bang. His first few buckets were all dunks and he finished the game with 21 points, 10 rebounds and 3 blocks vs Orange Lutheran in his first high school game of the 2017 season.

OK Folks Time To Update Your Firefox Browser

Mozilla today launched Firefox 51 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android


 The new version includes a new warning for websites which collect passwords but don't use HTTPS, WebGL 2 support for better 3D graphics, and FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) playback. 

Mozilla doesn't break out the exact numbers for Firefox, though the company does say "half a billion people around the world" use the browser. 

In other words, it's a major platform that web developers target -- even in a world increasingly dominated by mobile apps.

Hi ,

On clear and sunny days, you can look in the sky and see them.

For the longest time, I thought it was totally harmless.

Until I started digging...

And what I found out was shocking to say the least.

I guess you shouldn’t be surprised that this company created such a thing under the guise of protecting the earth from global warming via weather control.

Not only is this not the case, but what they’re doing is damaging our food and water.

In this recent blog post, I lay out that facts of what’s really going on in our sky and you’ll also learn who’s responsible for letting it happen.

Go here to learn more

Don’t forget to share this with your friends and family on Facebook and Pinterest and as always… let me know what you think in the comments section below.

Moment of Worship Kathryn Kuhlman

Brant Baker Shekinah Fellowship Long Beach California. "That I May Apprehend That For Which I Was Apprehended."

Brant speaking in San Diego California. From the audio acoustics it sounds like a big church.

Brant shares how Shekinah Fellowship started and what it means.


Pastor Tilson's Logic

School of the Prophets and Pastors

A man introduced himself as a prophet and the pastor ridiculed him for it.

The prophet had attended a school to become a prophet and the pastor had attended seminary to become a pastor.

 Each had to pay a fee for their education.

The pastor went on to say that no school of the prophets should charge people money to become prophets.

 The prophet replied that no man or school can decide the ministry office of an individual but it does take money to run a school.

 The pastor was certain of his own calling but felt the prophet was being presumptuous of his.

 Both the prophet and the pastor felt a strong calling to the ministry.

They both began preparing for it by attending schools that charged a tuition.

Bible college, seminary, and prophetic schools of ministry for advanced Christian education are different names for the same thing.

 A pastor that attends Bible college is no different than a prophet that attends a school for prophets.


 The school does not make a person a pastor or a prophet, it only helps to equip them for what God has called them to be.


The pastor who ridiculed the prophet said that he could not think of anywhere in the Bible where a prophet called himself a prophet.

The prophet said. “Come to think of it, I can’t think of anywhere in the Bible that a pastor called himself a pastor.”

Pastor, senior pastor, associate pastor, we hear it all the time and we see it everywhere in print; the sign at the church, the church bulletin, business cards and web-sites.

With every church there is a pastor that calls himself a pastor, but where are the prophets?

The office of a pastor is not superior to that of a prophet.

 Both are listed in the five anointings of Christ in (Ephesians 4:11).

 If there are true pastors, there are true prophets.

 If there are false prophets, there are also false pastors.

 Self proclaimed prophets are not any more dangerous to the body of Christ than self appointed pastors.

 A pastor is in the position of a shepherd and capable of leading his flock astray.

 To lead innocent sheep away from the prophetic anointing of Christ is against the Word of God, and sometimes God calls upon the prophets to point that out.

It is vital to every calling of God, that the one called knows the office of his calling.

Paul the apostle was a man that knew what he was called to be and how to stand in the authority of that call.

 He said “Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me…” (2 Corinthians 13:3).

He continually reiterated the fact that he was an apostle called by God and not by man.

Paul was constantly dealing with unbelief concerning his anointing in Christ, yet he never allowed it to detour him from what he was called to be.

In the New Testament account, Paul knew who he was, and in the Old Testament, so did Elijah.

 Paul called himself an apostle of Christ, and Elijah called himself a prophet of the Lord (1 Kings 18:22).

When Ahab, the king over Israel had forsaken the commandments of the Lord, he said to Elijah, “Art thou he that troubleth Israel?”

 Prophets of the Lord have a long history of rejection because they are known to stir up and agitate a situation that God is about to judge.

Croatia Dog Walk

My Home Town Costa Mesa, a bad place for kids to grow up now!

When I grew up in Costa Mesa California there was a lot for kids to do in town.


We had a drive in movie theater and one movie theater.

We had two ice skating rinks and one roller rink.

We had a nearby go cart track.

We had a batting cage.

We had pony rides.

We had two bowling alleys.

We had a library.

We had safe parks.

Today all of this is gone except for a movie theater with multiple screens and one small expensive bowling alley and two libraries

Today, go to any park in Costa Mesa and you can find used hypodermic needles.

The parks are now havens for users of drugs.

The city fathers were interested in other things more important than it's kids.

They allowed increased building density in a haphazard who cares way.

In the process they left their kids to drift.

And to think that Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa started here...

Iceland knows how to stop teen substance abuse, but the world isn't listening. 



CIA Releases 13M Pages of Declassified Documents Online (bbc.com)

The truth is out there.

 For those of us who enjoy a good conspiracy there is now some new material to sift through that is online.


About 13 million pages of declassified documents from the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) have been released online.

The records include UFO sightings and psychic experiments from the Stargate programme, which has long been of interest to conspiracy theorists.

 From a report on BBC: 

We don't want to know.
 http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/
 The move came after lengthy efforts from freedom of information advocates and a lawsuit against the CIA. The full archive is made up of almost 800,000 files.

 They had previously only been accessible at the National Archives in Maryland. 

The trove includes the papers of Henry Kissinger, who served as secretary of state under presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, as well as several hundred thousand pages of intelligence analysis and science research and development.

Sitting Too Much Ages You By 8 Years (time.com)

So here you are once again just sitting there staring at a screen.

Sitting too much during the day has been linked to a host of diseases, from obesity to heart problems and diabetes, as well as early death.

 It's not hard to understand why:

Being inactive can contribute to weight gain, which in turn is a risk factor for heart attack, stroke, hypertension and unhealthy blood sugar levels.

 On top of everything else, sitting has detrimental effects on cells at the biological level, according to a new report published in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

From a report on Time:

 In the new study, scientists led by Aladdin Shadyab, a post-doctoral fellow in family medicine and public health at the University of California San Diego, traced sitting's impact on the chromosomes.

 They took blood samples from nearly 1,500 older women enrolled in the Women's Health Initiative, a long-term study of chronic diseases in post-menopausal women, and focused on the telomeres: the tips of the tightly packed DNA in every cell. 

Previous studies have found that as cells divide and age, they lose bits of the telomeres, so the length of this region can be a marker for how old a cell (and indirectly the person the cells belong to) is. 

The researchers compared telomere length to how much the women exercised, to see if physical activity affected aging.

Krebs Pinpoints the Likely Author of the Mirai Botnet (engadget.com)

The Mirai botnet caused serious trouble last fall, first hijacking numerous IoT devices to make a historically massive Distributed Denial-Of-Service (DDoS) attack on KrebsOnSecurity's site in September before taking down a big chunk of the internet a month later.


 But who's responsible for making the malware? From a report on Engadget: 

After his site went dark, security researcher Brian Krebs went on a mission to identify its creator, and he thinks he has the answer:

 Several sources and corroborating evidence point to Paras Jha, a Rutgers University student and owner of DDoS protection provider Protraf Solutions

About a week after attacking the security site, the individual who supposedly launched the attack, going by the username Anna Senpai, released the source code for the Mirai botnet, which spurred other copycat assaults.

 But it also gave Krebs the first clue in their long road to uncover Anna Senpai's real-life identity -- an investigation so exhaustive, the Krebs made a glossary of cross-referenced names and terms along with an incomplete relational map.

 This was taken Christmas morning/afternoon.

 It's a 22 minute video I processed at 4x as to not waste a bunch of time. You tell me what's going on! :) This is a great video and explains it pretty well.

Now More Then Ever Before You Have To Watch What You Eat!



Even Squirrels don't like GMO corn.


Left in the back yard. They ate the 'real' corn and left the crap.

There's a little known, dirty story about the International Space Station (ISS): 


It's filled with bacteria and fungi. 

A new study has found compelling evidence that microorganisms from human skin are present throughout the station, and some of the bugs could cause serious harm to astronauts.

The most concerning finding was from the "high-efficiency particulate arrestance" (HEPA) air filter used in the ISS: 99.65% of the viable sequences they retrieved came from Actinobacteria. 

The Actinobacteria phylum includes Corynebacterium and Propionibacterium; each genus was found in the ISS samples at a high level, which is "problematic," say the researchers, because they both have species that are opportunistic pathogens

Astronauts who live in microgravity for prolonged periods also can have compromised immune systems.

Here on earth we are also under heavy relentless attack by products from Monsanto.

Glyphosate Interferes with Biochemistry of Bacteria in our guts, bacteria needed for our immune systems to be healthy.

Many of you are justifiably concerned about the toxic effects of pesticides in our environment and in our foods since so many have proven harmful to us.

While some have been banned, some persist in the U.S. though other countries have exercised more caution than us...than the U.S.!

Here is the first of two video interviews with Dr. Stephanie Seneff from MIT, who reveals how and why popular herbicides like RoundUp (and others) that contain glyphosate have a multiplier killing effect on creatures of planet earth.

So how should we eat to protect ourselves?

Woman Can And Should Be In Ministry, Let Me Explain...

 If your bull headed and have made up your mind about women not being eligible for the ministry, I suggest you move on.

Nothing here for you to see.

But if you honestly want to know what the Bible indicates concerning this topic then here is food for thought.

I Believe In Women

Are Women In Ministry In The Bible?

As you know, the Greek word APOSTOLOS translated apostle means "one sent forth," a sent one.

A true apostle is always "one with a commission" - not one who merely goes, but one who is sent.

A missionary who is really called of God and sent by the Holy Ghost is an apostle.

What marks do we look for in an apostle today?

1. Outstanding spiritual gifts.
2. Deep personal experience.
3. Power and ability to establish churches.
4. Able to provide adequate spiritual leadership.

If a woman meets this list then what are we to think of her.

Exodus 15:24: Miriam, the daughter of Aaron was a prophet and one of the triad of leaders of Israel during the Exodus from Egypt.

Judges 4 , 5: Deborah, a prophet-judge, headed the army of ancient Israel.

2 Kings 22:14; 2 Chronicles 34:22 Huldah, a prophet, verified the authenticity of the "Book of the Law of the Lord given through Moses" - the Book of Deuteronomy. She triggered a religious renewal.

Acts 9:36 The author of Luke referred to a female disciple of Jesus by her Aramaic name Tabitha, who was also known by her Greek name Dorcas. She became sick, had died; St. Peter brought her back to life.

Acts 21:8: Philip the evangelist had four unmarried daughters who were prophets. Philippians 4:2: Paul refers to two women, Euodia and Syntyche, as his co-workers who were active evangelicals, spreading the gospel.

Romans 16:1: Paul refers to Phoebe as a minister or deacon of the church at Cenchrea.

The Greek word which describes her function is "diakonos" which means literally "official servant."

She is the only deacon in the Bible to be identified by name.

Some translations say deaconess; others try to obscure her position by mistranslating the Greek as a simple "servant" or "helper".

Paul later refers to Phoebe as a woman, calling her "our sister."

This prevented later church leaders from hiding her gender as they did with Junia in Romans 16:7 below - by changing her name and implying that she was a man.

Romans 16:3: Paul refers to Priscilla as another of his "fellow workers in Christ Jesus" (NIV)

Other translations refer to her as a "co-worker".

 But other translations attempt to downgrade her status by calling her a "helper". The original Greek word is "synergoi", which literally means "fellow worker" or "colleague."

It is worth noting that Paul refers to Priscilla and her husband as "Priscilla and Aquila" in this passage and as "Aquila and Priscilla" in 1 Corinthians 16:19.

 It would appear that the order is not important to Paul. As in Galatians 3:28, he apparently believed that there is no distinction among those who have been baptized into Christ between male and female.

Romans 16:7: Paul refers to a male apostle, Andronicus, and a female apostle, Junia, as "outstanding among the apostles" (NIV)

Every Greek and Latin church Father until Giles of Rome (circa 1000 CE) acknowledged that Junia was a woman.

After that time, various writers and translators of the Bible resorted to deceptions in order to suppress her gender.

For example:

The Amplified Bible translates this passage as "They are men held in high esteem among the apostles."

The Revised Standard Version shows it as "they are men of note among the apostles."

The reference to them both being men does not appear in the original Greek text.

The word "men" was simply inserted by the translators, apparently because the translators' minds recoiled from the concept of a female apostle.

Many translations, including the Amplified Bible, Rheims New Testament, New American Standard Bible, and the New International Version simply picked the letter "s" out of thin air, and converted the original "Junia" (a woman's name) into "Junias" (a man's).

 Again, it was probably inconceivable to the translators that Paul would recognize a woman as an apostle.

There are many Gospels and other early Christian writings that never made it into the official canon.

 Some shed light of the role of women in various early Christian groups:

The Christian Gnostic tradition represented one of the three main forms of early Christianity - the others being Jewish Christianity and Pauline Christianity. Gnostic texts show that women held senior roles as teachers, prophets and missionaries.

They conducted rituals such as baptism and the Eucharist. They performed exorcisms.

The Gospel of Philip, was widely used among early Christian congregations.

 It portrayed Mary Magdalene as the companion of Jesus, in a position of very high authority within the early Christian movement.

The Gospel of Mary described Mary Magdalene as a leader of Jesus' disciples.

She delivering a passionate sermon to the disciples after his resurrection.

This raised their spirits and inspired them to evangelize the known world.

Philoumene, a woman, headed a Christian theological school in Rome during the second century CE.

...Paul mentioned 40 names in his letters...and talked about the big missionary enterprise of which there are dozens of people or participants...

Of those 40 people, 16 are women.

That's a considerable proportion of women involved in the Pauline missionary effort." Helmut Koestler 4

...it is not admissible to ordain women to the priesthood, for very fundamental reasons.

These reasons include: the example recorded in the Sacred Scriptures of Christ choosing his Apostles only from among men; the constant practice of the Church, which has imitated Christ in choosing only men; and her living teaching authority which has consistently held that the exclusion of women from the priesthood is in accordance with God's plan for his Church." Pope Paul VI 8

Fact be told...women are living souls just the same as men...and God looks at the heart, not the sex genes.

As in so many religious beliefs, we see a major split between conservative and liberal Christians concerning female ordination:

Many conservative Christian denominations allow only men to be ordained.

A major support for this decision is Paul's statement in 1 Timothy 2:11-15 in which the author did "not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent."

Further, 1 Timothy 3:2 specifies that overseers and deacons must be men. Finally, 1 Corinthians 14:34b-35 states that women must be silent and in submission when in church.

 If they want to clarify some theological point, they should wait and approach their husband at home.
 
Any of these statements would totally preclude women becoming ministers or pastors.

Much of their opposition to equal treatment of women is derived from their concept of the inerrancy of the official canon of the Bible.

 Most believe that such books as Timothy and Titus were written by Paul prior to his death circa 65 CE.

Many liberal theologians note that:

In the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament), women's roles were highly restricted; they rarely held positions of power; they were often considered as property by their "owners" -- their fathers and husbands.

Jesus violated 1st century customs in Palestine by generally treating men and women as equals.

Of the dozen or so individuals who made up Jesus' inner circle, about half were women.

Paul appears to have also treated women in the early Christian movement as equals, as co-workers, and as deserving of positions of authority, including the ministry.

An equally valid translation of 1 Timothy 2:11-15 is "I do not permit a wife to teach or to have authority over her husband..."
Through the use of Biblical criticism, liberal theologians have dated the books 1 Timothy and Titus to 100 to 150 CE. That is perhaps a half century after Paul's death.
\
1 Timothy 1:1, and Titus 1:1 declare that Paul was their author. Religious liberals consider the books to be clearly pseudonymous (written under an assumed name).

The true author is unknown. Some theologians theorize that the books might have been written partly to counteract Paul's acceptance of women as equals, and to justify the church's gradual slide into a male-dominated institution.

Some would argue that the policies of Jesus and Paul in the area of gender equality are a higher standard than the oppression of women which is expressed in the Hebrew Scriptures and in some of the pseudonymous epistles.

They believe that the present North American secular standard should be followed with respect to female ordination.

They would prefer to abandon the restrictions on women that were implemented within Christendom, starting in the late 1st century CE.

Until the early years of the 20th century, very few Christian faith groups allowed women to be ordained.

 Since then, most of the liberal denominations have accepted female ministers and pastors.

 Mainline denominations followed. Very conservative denominations generally do not.

 The historical trend appears obvious - it may be just a matter of time before almost all denominations will remove their gender barrier, and finally match the rest of society.

Acts 9:36: Paul refers to a woman (Tabitha in Aramaic, Dorcas in Greek, Gazelle in English) as a disciple.

Acts 18:24-26 describes how Priscilla, a woman, and Aquila, her husband, both acted in the role of an official pastor to a man from Alexandria, called Apollos.

Various translations of the Bible imply that they taught him in the synagogue (Amplified Bible, King James Version, Rheims, New American Standard, New American, New Revised Standard).

However, the New International Version has an unusual translation of this passage. The NIV states that the teaching occurred in Priscilla's and Aquila's home.

Romans 16:1: This chapter is apparently unrelated to chapter 15 and to the rest of the book.

 It appears to be an independent note that has been attached to the epistle to the Romans.

It starts with a letter of recommendation which introduces Phoebe to a group of people associated with the church at Corinth. Paul refers to her as a "deacon in the sense of a preacher, a minister, because Paul uses the same word for himself.

He calls himself, in a number of instances, a deacon of the new covenant in 2 Corinthians."

 It is often translated "deaconess" or "servant" or "helper" in English translations - perhaps in order to disguise her true status.

The same Greek word appears in Ephesians 6:21 where it refers to a male and is normally translated "minister."

It also appears in 2 Corinthians where Paul used the word to refer to himself.

Dr. Helmut Koester comments:

"Most of the persons named in this list are not simply personal friends of Paul in the church of Ephesus, but associates and co-workers. 

This is shown by the repeated references to their functions.

 The fact that such a large number of women appears in this list is clear and undeniable evidence for the unrestricted participation of women in the offices of the church in the Pauline congregations."

Romans 16:3: Paul refers to Priscilla, a woman, as another of his "fellow workers in Christ Jesus" (NIV)

 Other translations refer to her as a "co-worker".

But still other translations attempt to downgrade her status by calling her a simple "helper".

The original Greek word is "synergoi", which literally means "fellow worker" or "colleague."

Romans 16:7: Paul refers to a male apostle, Andronicus and a female apostle, Junia, as "outstanding among the apostles" (NIV)

The Amplified Bible translates this passage as "They are men held in high esteem among the apostles."

The Revised Standard Version shows it as "they are men of note among the apostles."

The reference to them both being men does not appear in the original Greek text. "Men" was simply inserted by the translators - we suspect because the their minds recoiled from the concept of a female apostle.

Many translations, including the Amplified Bible, Rheims New Testament, New American Standard Bible, and the New International Version simply picked the letter "s" out of thin air.

They converted the original "Junia" (a woman's name) into "Junias" (which they considered a man's name) in order to erase all reference to a female apostle.

Junia was first converted into a man only in the "13th century, when Aegidius of Rome (1245-1316) referred to both Andronicus and Junia as "honorable men."

 One source  refers to Hans Lietzmann who studied names used in ancient times.

He found no evidence that "Junias" was ever used as a man's name.

"Junias" might possibly have been used as a short form for "Junianus," which did exist.

 But there are no references to it in antiquity.

It appears obvious that Junia was definitely an outstanding female apostle, and that many Bible translators have been trying to suppress this information.

1 Corinthians 1:11: Chloe is mentioned as the owner of a house where Christian meetings were held.

There is some ambiguity as to whether the women actually led the house church or merely owned the building. Similar passages mention, with the same ambiguity:

The mother of Mark in Acts 12:12, and

Lydia in Acts 16:14-5, and 40, and

Nympha in Colossians 4:15.

1 Corinthians 11:3: "...Christ is the head of every man, and a husband the head of his wife, and the head of Christ is God. (NIV)"

 Conservative Christians often quote this passage as proof that a husband should retain full authority over his wife in family matters.

This concept of women being in an inferior power position might logically be extended to the church organization as well.

Some liberal Christians note that the Greek word translated "head" is "kephale", which can be interpreted in two ways:

"having authority over," or alternately "source" or "origin." Looking at verses 3 to 12, each interpretation looks equally valid.

 The former would support rejection of women in positions of authority; the latter would not.

1 Corinthians 11:7-9: "For a man...is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man.

For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither was man created for woman but woman for man.

 For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head." (NIV)

Paul is attempting to give an explanation why women should cover their hair while in church.

 This passage is often quoted by conservative theologians to justify the inferior position assigned to women and thus deny them access to positions of power in churches.

Liberals might point out that this passage is largely ignored in practice; most women today do not cover their hair during church services.

Also, it does not appear to say anything about female ordination.

1 Corinthians 14:34b-35: "As in all the congregations of the saints, women should remain silent in the churches.

They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says, If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church." (NIV)

There are many interpretations of this short passage:

Many conservative theologians accept this passage in its plain and literal meaning and interpret it as prohibiting all talking by women during services in every society, forever.

This would of course prohibit a woman from accepting a position of pastor, minister or priest.

Bible scholar Hans Conzelmann concluded that this passage is a forgery*, inserted into St. Paul's original text by an unknown writer.

Thus, it cannot be regarded as the writing of Paul.

The verses were not in the original version, and thus cannot be considered inerrant. He cites a number of reasons for this conclusion:

this passage contradicts Chapter 11:5 where women are described as taking an active role in church assemblies by praying and prophesying during services.

Either the above passage or 11:5 must be invalid.

There are "peculiarities of linguistic usage, and of thought" in this passage which are not found in the rest of the Epistle.

 There is a discontinuity between verse 36 and 37. Verse 37 links up neatly with verse 33a.

If verses 34to 36 are simply removed, then the chapter flows smoothly, as it was probably originally intended to do.

 The forgery* was rather crudely done.

Others point out that Paul would hardly cite the Torah (the Law) as justification for restricting roles of women; his entire ministry involved the exact opposite: he preached liberation from the Law.


Some Biblical scholars say that Paul is here describing divisive practices being promoted by the Jewish Christians in Corinth - those who believed in Jesus as Lord while still following the Torah.

 They were generating discord by teaching that "As in the synagogues, women should remain silent.....as the Torah says."

That is, they wanted to translate synagogue practice, as defined by the Torah, into the Christian assemblies.

Women were not allowed to speak in synagogues, so they should not be allowed to speak in Christian assemblies.

Paul follows up this passage with verse 15 which severely criticizes the Jewish Christians for this position by asking "Did the word of God originate with you?

 Or are you the only people it has reached?"

From this interpretation, restriction on women, as taught by the Torah, should be rejected; men and women should be treated equally with respect to their behavior and roles in church.

Still others point out that the purpose of 1 Corinthians was to answer a number of questions raised by the Church at Corinth.

Paul's style was to write a brief quotation supplied by a Corinthian Christian, and then respond to it.

Verses 3:1, 5:1, 6:1, 7:1, 8:1 are some examples.

Following this same pattern, Verse 14:33b to 14:35 is not a comment by Paul.

Rather it may be a question raised by a Corinthian who objected to women speaking in church.

The church member may have asked:

 "As in all of the synagogues of the holy ones, women should remain silent in the synagogues.

 They are not allowed to speak but must be in submission, as the Torah says.

 If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the synagogue."

Paul would then have responded with an attack in Verses 36 - 38, and concludes the chapter with Verse 39, an instruction from the Lord to his "brothers and sisters" to be eager to prophesy, but in a fitting and orderly way.

All that is required to come up with this translation is to rearrange the original Greek slightly.

 Ancient Greek was written without punctuation marks, divisions into sentences or spaces between words.

This leads to a single passage having many different interpretations.

Others speculate that St. Paul is restricting the roles of women, but referring to:
a temporary problem of a local nature at the church at Corinth.

women chattering during services

women interrupting services with emotional outbursts

women speaking about certain specific items in church

Still others regard the passage as an indicator of St. Paul's poor regard for women, which originated in his Greek and Jewish background and was not overcome by his religious conversion to Christianity.

That is, it was an expression of his personal beliefs and can be safely overlooked in the present day.

Just as we have learned to ignore Biblical passages regarding slavery, passages concerning women covering their hair in church, passages prohibiting certain types of jewelry, we should learn to recognize the evil of Paul's sexism and recognize that this passage should be disregarded.

1 Corinthians 16:3: Paul refers to two, a married couple: Priscilla and her husband Aquila as his fellow workers in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 3:28: "There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." (NIV) This is perhaps the most famous passage in the New Testament that assigns equal status to individuals of both genders (and all races, nationalities and slave status). Some religious conservatives believe that this equality refers only to salvation and not to status.

Philippians 4:2: Paul refers to two women, Euodia and Syntyche, as his co-workers who were active evangelists, spreading the gospel.

This study could go on, but you get the point.

Women are living souls with minds and hearts and spirits just the same as men.

No one is self generated.

No one can minister outside of God's anointing upon their life.

A male apostle relys upon God for his anointing.

 A woman can and does rely upon God for her anointing!

The idea that women are less then men is ridiculous!

It is only the container that we are in that determines our sex.

Paul refers to this container as a "tent."

Our human body is only a "space~suit" that allows us to function on this earthly plane.

Its sexual orientation has nothing to do what~so~ever with our living soul that Christ died for.

Caffeine May Counter Age-Related Inflammation, Says Study (stanford.edu)

According to a new Stanford study published in the journal Nature Medicine, caffeine may help to counter the inflammatory process that occurs in some older people


The researchers have found a connection between advancing age, systemic inflammation, cardiovascular disease and coffee consumption by analyzing blood samples, survey data and medical and family histories obtained from more than 100 human participants in a multiyear study.

 Stanford Medical Center Report adds:

  The study implicates this inflammatory process as a driver of cardiovascular disease and increased rates of mortality overall. 

Metabolites, or breakdown products, of nucleic acids -- the molecules that serve as building blocks for our genes -- circulating in the blood can trigger this inflammatory process, the study found. 

The study also provides evidence that caffeine and its own metabolites may counter the action of these circulating nucleic-acid metabolites, possibly explaining why coffee drinkers tend to live longer than abstainers. 

Notably, this inflammatory mechanism was found to be activated only in some, but not all, of the older study participants. 

Those in whom it was relatively quiescent tended to drink more caffeinated beverages. Laboratory experiments revealed that the mechanism was directly countered by caffeine and associated compounds. 

 For the new study, the researchers compared blood drawn from older versus younger study participants to see which genes tended to be more highly activated in older people. 

They zeroed in on two clusters of genes whose activity was associated with the production of a potent circulating inflammatory protein called IL-1-beta. 

The genes within each cluster appeared to work in coordination with one another.

 The researchers found that incubating a type of immune cell with two of those nucleic-acid metabolites boosted activity in one of the gene clusters, resulting in increased IL-1-beta production.

 When injected into mice, the substances triggered massive systemic inflammation, along with high blood pressure. 

In addition, immune cells infiltrated and clogged the animals' kidneys, increasing renal pressure substantially. 

 Intrigued by the correlation between older participants' health, gene-cluster activation and self-reported rates of caffeine consumption, the researchers followed up and verified that blood from the group with low cluster activity was enriched for caffeine and a number of its metabolites, compared with blood from the group with high cluster activity.

 (Examples of these metabolites are theophylline, also found in tea, and theobromine, which abounds in chocolate.) 

Incubating immune cells with caffeine and its breakdown products along with the inflammation-triggering nucleic acid metabolites substantially prevented the latter from exerting their powerful inflammatory effect on the cells.

Quite Possibly The Greatest Rose Bowl Football Games Ever

It's a matchup of teams that in September, were left for dead.

 If you had asked them about the Rose Bowl then, they would have said, "maybe next year" but Penn State won 9 consecutive games and USC won 8 consecutive games to reach top ten status and indeed the Rose Bowl.

 Freshman QB's Trace McSorley and Sam Darnold led their teams back from the abyss and into the Pasadena night.

 The game was a gem, rivaling the 2005 game for excitement so sit back and enjoy one of the best Rose Bowls of all time.

And the other best game...

Where Are Those Who Speak The Words Of Christ?

There Is A Famine In The Land


Amos 8:11
11Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:


Millions have been spent on evangelistic enterprises since I first accepted Christ so long ago, 1967.

There are hundreds of gospel messages on radio, television and the internet daily. Book shelves are full of Christian materials telling every sort of angle point imaginable of how to do this and how to do that to increase your Christian experience.

Wonderfully eloquent preachers are everywhere.

There are large prosperous Christian organizations all across our nation.

But where are those who can prophetically bring to us the Word of God?

 Where are the prophets?

There is a vacuum in Christianity today.

There are missing persons...


Prophetic ministry is the recovery of God's full purpose and thoughts towards His people.

A handful of men and women turned their world upside down as they proclaimed the Lordship and Saviourhood of Jesus Christ.

 The book of Acts shows a people working together with a sense of purpose, not organizations with missionary enterprises throwing money and people around while the world is still not evangelized.
'
The institutionalism, ecclesiasticism, commercialism, organizationalism has not been able to do the real work and purpose of God.

In the year that Paul the apostle died there were churches in Jerusalem, Nazareth, Caesarea, Antioch and all Syria; Galatia; Sardis, Laodicea, Ephesus and all the towns on the West coast throughout lesser Asis; in Philippi, Thessalonica, Athens, Corinth, and chief cities of the islands and the mainland of Greece; Rome, and the Western Roman Colonies; and in Alexandria.

How did a few unknown men and women, looked upon as poor and ignorant, associated with one 'Jesus of Nazareth'-which very designation was despicable in the minds of all reputable and influential people, accomplish so much?

They were not theologians or experts in doctrines.

With all that we have today, the internet, cell phone etc...why can't we produce the same fruit?

The Word of God says...He gave some...prophets.

People with a special function and faculty among God's people.
.
Voices of interpretation and explanation, voices that interpret the mind of God to people.


Ephesians 4:11
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

There are some somewhere right?

There has to be because the Word of God says so.


Prophets bring a declaration and a pronouncement of God's mind to the course and drift of things to God's people.

They bring about a clear view of the thoughts of God against the prevailing course of things.

 God's purpose has to be reached in God's way and by God's means.

 Not by man's methods, ideas, programs and schemes.

God could have said to Moses, "build Me a tabernacle, OK?


 I leave it to you how you do it, what you use, for you know what I am after.

But God didn't do it that way.

 God did not leave a single detail up to Moses.

 Every peg, stitch and thread was dictated by God.

God sends His prophets where needed to bring about detailed knowledge of God's purposes and intentions.

Only the Holy Spirit of God is acquainted with all the thoughts of God and He alone can speak and work and bring things about in true consistency with Divine principles.

The Church is the Body of Christ- a heavenly thing.

Not an earthly thing.

It is related to Christ in Heaven, Christ the head.

The mind of God comes to us through the Holy Spirit.

 He is in charge, not man.

Therefore there is knowledge that is imparted to us by means of revelation and the Word of God.

With this knowledge we can be in conformity to God's thoughts.

So it is that often God uses people to remind us of His thoughts, eternal counsel and vision brought to us.

Those who are among us that God will use to speak His Words through, get our attention.

 We react to what they bring to us.

 We respond towards heaven. We, as the Bride of Christ are uplifted to see Jesus our beloved.

We are brought into relationship with Christ.

So where are the prophets?

There is a famine in the land for the Word of the Lord!

Ask God to send His prophets, to give some prophets.

And when they do show up, do not reject them!

Whoever welcomes a prophet as a prophet will receive a prophet's reward, and whoever welcomes a righteous person as a righteous person will receive a righteous person's reward.
Matthew 10:41

Meaning that if you receive them, you get rewarded with what they can and are able to bring to the table.
