Background News

"This is very exciting because it suggests that PAK inhibitors could be used for therapeutic purposes to reverse already established mental impairments in Fragile X children."

FOUNDING EDITOR'S NOTE [Breaking Christian News]: We don't often post fulfillments of prophetic words. But some words are so very specific, and the fulfillment may also be specific, that to NOT post [it], would be a disservice to our readers. Kim Clement spoke of Autism in a word we posted on December 23rd from a December 8th session given in Portland, Oregon. We've included the portions of Kim's word—specific to autism—below. You can read the whole word in its entirety by CLICKING HERE.

Part of Kim's word also mentioned "corruption in the pharmaceutical" areas. After recently publishing a story about the connection between the mercury found in childhood vaccines and Autism, we felt this may be what the word was about. We've also included a link to that news story below that paragraph. –Steve Shultz, BCN.

Excerpt from word given by way of Kim Clement—December 8th, 2006

"But because there has been corruption in the pharmaceutical regions and the political areas, they have held back some of these cures which could have taken place..." (BCN News article on vaccines and Autism)

"The Spirit of God says, 'There is a very unusual matter regarding the field of medicine, where they will not allow certain ideas regarding creativity, but once it happens, there will be a breakthrough in May or June of next year...I [the Lord God] already sent out cures where some great, great discovery shall take place, a neurological discovery that will bring those with certain disorders into a place of healing. Look to the autistic children.' For God says, 'Autistic children—if they survive and they come out of it, and the discovery is made, they shall be the geniuses of the world.'"

(Chicago-AFP)—New research from scientists at MIT—performed on modified lab-mice—has found that by inhibiting a certain enzyme that effects brain-cell connections, the brain damage found in children with Fragile-X syndrome (the most common genetic cause of Autism) could actually be un-done.

According to the AFP report, tests revealed that electrical communication between neurons in the brain was restored by the PAK-blocking action, and that abnormal behavior was also corrected.

Eric Klann, a professor at New York University's Center for Neural Science, remarked, "This is very exciting because it suggests that PAK inhibitors could be used for therapeutic purposes to reverse already established mental impairments in Fragile X children."

There are definite behaviors associated with autism, and also things that can be done to confirm it — I’m no expert but have learned a little about it. Whatever is done to diagnose this in humans must also work to diagnose it in mice.

Very narrow in this case. It’s strickly relates to Fragile X which is a genetic issue apart from Autism.

My autistic grandson just got his ACT scores today and he had a perfect score in math.

Bless you and your family.. My grandson is autistic, with the same symptoms and challenges as it appears that your son exhibits.. I am grateful that there are some glimmers of light in the offing, and can only hope that they are even slightly successful in treating this all consuming and heartbreaking illness.. That said, with all of the challenges, our boy is the sunshine in all of our lives..

Let me further add that I have seen this child come further then I ever thought possible. It is thought that one day he will drive and go to college.

What a bizarre thing to say. I won’t “chill out” at your command. I have a bigger picture of this than you do, apparently, which includes parents who agonize over their autistic children, wanting them to be able to speak, etc.
