    49 Everyone will be salted with (the Holy Spirit.)

    50 “Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other.”

    None of the above.

    For the same reason that a prayerful blessing to an evil person is like placing hot coals upon their heads..

    And, in the parable of the tares in the wheat, the weeds will be burned....

    When the Holy Spirit moves in and encounters evil, it burns it in the process of transforming it.

    God is Love... and Perfect Love casts out fear.

    A problem is created when a person holds onto the fear and becomes afraid that the Light of the Divine Bliss will kill them. They experience the feeling of burning in hell.

    I’ve been around quite a few people for extended periods caring for them up to and at the time of their death. Usually, there is a period of Divine Bliss just prior to death and I can feel the person slip away into this beautiful feeling as they transcend their physical body and enter Heaven.

    But recently, my 97 year old mother died after me caring for her 24/7 for over two years. Three weeks prior to her death, she was crying and said that she was afraid that she was going to hell. I could feel the fear in her hips as it was so strong that it would cramp my left hand if I held it over her hip area of her body.

    The next day she stopped eating. Each day I would spend hours in meditation and prayer, asking for the portal to open up and shine the Divine Bliss upon her. But to no avail... I could however see the liquid light of the Holy Spirit upon her.

    This continued daily for two weeks. The hospice nurse and I both noticed the entire time that her body temperature was very, very hot to the touch, yet she had no infection.

    At the end of two weeks she stopped consuming liquids, except for the small dose of morphine I would give her every 4 hrs. She brought her knees up in a fetal position and her body became stiff, making it awkward for me to turn her over every four hours to prevent bed sores. It was like turning a mannequin. This continued for three days upon which time her body relaxed and straightened out. Again, her body was very, very hot to the touch the entire time. It radiated heat it was so hot. She survived a week with no liquid consumption.

    Two things happened that were very odd during this dying process. She began this process at about 90 lbs and during the three week period of dying she stopped eating for two weeks and then no food or liquids the third week, but yet she still had multiple bowl movements and urine purges every day right up to her death. Where they came from was beyond me.

    When she died, I was with her. It was about 10 pm. I called the hospice nurse and told her not to bother coming until the next day as I was ok with her being there for the night. I straightened the limbs in order that the body could be moved easily after it became stiff.

    The next day when the hospice nurse arrived the body was not stiff at all. I put a clean long sleeve blouse and long pants on her and the body was completely limber and easy to move. There was no rigor mortise... Puzzled the heck out of me.

    It was not until after she had died that I realized that the Divine Bliss confronting her fear energy would have been to much for her. Thus the portal did not open. She was afraid of the bright Light of Heaven. It would have been too much and created the discomfort she had feared.... i.e burning feeling of hell!

    However, the Holy Spirit came upon her which was not as bright as the Divine Bliss. This Holy Spirit stayed with her for all three weeks transforming the fear to Love and gently cleansed her soul. This is why her body was so hot during the three week period up to her death. (I did notice that all of the fear energy was gone from her hip area prior to her death.)

    She slipped from her body and only then did the bright Divine Bliss come upon her to assist in transcending to Heaven.

    My point in sharing this story is that the energy of the Holy Spirit was like salt of fire being placed upon her body as it cleansed her soul of the fear. It reminded me of when Jesus went into the wilderness without food or water in his cleansing process, prior to becoming “One with God.” It’s how the process works.

    “We are to preach the gospel as He commanded so that souls can come to Him. He is not hiding Himself from mankind in this church age.”

    He is still hidden to most. But for those who have eyes and ears, they are fully experiencing Him now.

    Jesus, to anyone who is truly one with Him, is like the lightning in the East that is seen in the West. We are in Him and One with Our Father through Him, just as described in John 17.

    Much of Christianity today is far from Jesus’ teachings.

    Satan made Christianity a government and bureaucracy to control people.

    Christianity when followed correctly does the exact opposite of controlling the people. It sets them free.

    “How do we ascertain if they are NOT ready for it?”

    Plant seeds. Speak in parables...

    But for the most important knowledge, guide them to go within in prayer and meditation to get it direct through the Holy Spirit.

    A person must know enough to ask the right questions before you can answer with the highest knowledge.

    For example, a person who is given the ability to heal is also given the ability to harm. Just as Jesus healed, but also cursed the fig tree and it lost its leaves.

    We must be careful when teaching. Plant seeds by speaking in parables. If the seeds sprout and the person returns with questions, share your knowledge by answering their questions, but don’t share God’s best knowledge with those who are not ready for it. The knowledge of God is very powerful and in the mind of a person with an impure motive, can cause harm. Lead a person to the well, but they must choose to drink.

    Matthew 7:6 “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.

    The knowledge of God’s Law is written upon our hearts. If we have a calloused heart it cannot be written upon. Do not judge others as in doing so we callous our own hearts.
    **************************************************************************************

    The profound joyous experience of being “One with Jesus” is much as Jesus described the “Joy” of the experience that quickly falls away. ***

    Matthew 13:10——

    10 The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?”

    11 He replied, “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. 12 Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. 13 This is why I speak to them in parables:

    “Though seeing, they do not see;
    though hearing, they do not hear or understand.
    14 In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah:

    “‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
    you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.
    15 For this people’s heart has become calloused;
    they hardly hear with their ears,
    and they have closed their eyes.
    Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
    hear with their ears,
    understand with their hearts
    and turn, and I would heal them.’

    16 But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. 17 For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.

    18 “Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: 19 When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path.

    ***20 The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.

    22 The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful.

    23 But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”

    Possible Intention Tremor

    These are not diagnostic comments. They are for information only.

    Broad Classification of Tremors

    TREMOR TYPE:

    Action Tremor: Includes postural, isometric, and kinetic tremors

    Occurs in conjunction with a voluntary contraction of muscle

    Kinetic Tremor: Occurs with any form of voluntary movement Includes classic essential, cerebellar, dystonic, and drug-induced tremors

    Intention Tremor: Subtype of kinetic tremor amplified as the target is reached

    Presence of this type of tremor implies that there is a disturbance of the cerebellum or its pathways

    The woman holding the cell phone in front of Hillary just below eye level could have triggered an intention tremor.

    Alcohol, caffeine and other drugs could influence this type of tremor.

    Diagnostic algorithm for tremors.

    DRUG- AND METABOLIC-INDUCED TREMORS Dozens of medications can cause or exacerbate tremor. Patients with new-onset tremor should have a comprehensive medication review with specific attention to medications (prescribed and over-the-counter) started proximal to the onset of tremor. Medications particularly prone to inducing or exacerbating tremor are those that stimulate the sympathetic nervous system (e.g., amphetamines, terbutaline, pseudoephedrine) and psychoactive medications (e.g., tricyclic antidepressants, haloperidol, fluoxetine [Prozac]). When medication review reveals a likely culprit, a trial off of this medication should be attempted.

    Selected Medications and Substances That May Exacerbate Tremors

    Amiodarone

    Amphetamines

    Atorvastatin (Lipitor)

    Beta-adrenergic agonists (e.g., albuterol)

    Caffeine

    Carbamazepine (Tegretol)

    Corticosteroids

    Cyclosporine (Sandimmune)

    Epinephrine

    Fluoxetine (Prozac)

    Haloperidol

    Hypoglycemic agents

    Lithium

    Metoclopramide (Reglan)

    Methylphenidate (Ritalin)

    Pseudoephedrine

    Terbutaline

    Theophylline

    Thyroid hormones

    Tricyclic antidepressants

    Valproic acid (Depakene)

    Verapamil

    Hope this helps.......

    Most tremors are symmetric, but brain tumors can cause tremors to lateralize to one side. Caffeine and fatigue are often exacerbating factors in essential tremor; alleviating factors are difficult to find. A search must be made for associated diseases (e.g., sleep disorders because fatigued muscles may amplify physiologic tremor; polyneuropathy because lack of innervations may cause small involuntary movements that are interpreted as tremor).

    A family history of neurologic disease or tremor suggests a genetic component, as is often seen in essential tremor. A thorough medication history should be obtained to rule out drug-induced tremor.

    The patient should also be screened for drugs of abuse and alcohol consumption because alcohol overuse and withdrawal can cause tremor. Conversely, small amounts of alcohol can temporarily relieve essential tremor and can be a clue to the diagnosis.

    I’ve done quite a few exorcisms and demonic deposession sessions. It’s really not me doing it as it is always done through prayer.

    Once I got stung pretty bad by a dark demon that threw me across the room and it took me a few days to get rid of it. Afterward I asked in prayer why it happened. The response was that I needed the experience so as to not fear it in the future.

    Remember, when you turn on a light it fills the room. While darkness can exist inside a box, when the box is opened the box fills with light, the room does not fill with darkness. Love and Light is always more powerful.

    Responding to evil with Love destroys it, just as a prayerful blessing for an evil person is like placing hot coals upon their heads.

    I do not fear evil. I’ve encountered pure evil a few times in my past. Each time I treat it like a road sign to pray and stop and thank the evil for reminding me to pray.

    Always strive for God’s Love as His perfect Love casts out all fear.

    Per the article

    The class of representatives in the class action lawsuit is currently in the thousands and continuing to grow, as any donor to Bernie Sanders’ campaign eligible to join. The Beck & Lee Law Firm has set up a Facebook Page with updates on the progress of the lawsuit.

    The DNC also rescinded a ban on donations from lobbyists and super-PACS—first enacted by Barack Obama in 2008—by organizing a joint fundraising committee with the Clinton campaign called the Hillary Victory Fund. According to a report by Politico in April 2016, the Hillary Victory Fund laundered money to the Clinton campaign under the pretense of funding down-ticket Democrats.

    Hillary Clinton was never elected the Democratic presidential nominee, but was touted by the Democratic Party, who said it was her turn for the presidency—rather than leaving the decision to voters. Beck & Lee’s lawsuit the first of many consequences the Democratic Party will face for manipulating millions of voters.

    When they purchased Hoegaarden from Pierre Celles and moved the brewery from the city of Hoegaarden, the city sued to get their name removed from the beer as InBev moved production from the city. I understand InBev moved production back to Hoegaarden.

    I was a personal guest of InBev's Board Chair at an international brewing symposium several years ago at the University of Leuven in Belgium. For that I am forever grateful to them. Lot's of great beer in Belgium!

    InBev, the largest beer company in the industry, has over 200 beer brands produced and sold throughout the world.

    Its global brands are Budweiser, Corona and Stella Artois. Its international brands are Beck's, Hoegaarden and Leffe. The rest are categorized as local brands.

    In 2013, it had a net profit of US$14.4 billion (including extraordinary items) on sales of US$43.2 billion.

    They do make many excellent beers:

    Per the news reports:

    Ashe — who was facing trial for tax fraud — died Wednesday afternoon in his house in Westchester County. The UN said he’d had a heart attack. But the local Dobbs Ferry police said Thursday that his throat had been crushed, presumably by a barbell he dropped while pumping iron.

    Ashe was due in court Monday with his Chinese businessman co-defendant Ng Lap Seng, who is charged with smuggling $4.5 million into the US since 2013 and lying that it was to buy art and casino chips.

    Ng was identified in a 1998 Senate report as the source of hundreds of thousands of dollars illegally funneled through an Arkansas restaurant owner, Charlie Trie, to the Democratic National Committee during the Clinton administration. (Ng was not charged with any crime.)

    Ng and Trie had visited the White House several times for Democratic fund-raising events and were photographed with then-President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton.

    One source told me, “During the trial, the prosecutors would have linked Ashe to the Clinton bagman Ng. It would have been very embarrassing. His death was conveniently timed.”

    Ashe’s lawyer Jeremy Schneider told me he is sure Ashe’s death was an accident. “There is not one iota of evidence that it was homicide. This is nothing at all like Vince Foster.”

    Police in Dobbs Ferry village are keeping the investigation open pending an autopsy by the Westchester medical examiner.

    To all those people out of jobs...

    Remember that Hillary was on the Board of Directors of Walmart and how Walmart shipped our manufacturing jobs to China.

    Is this why Bill gave China “Most Favored Nation” trading status and Clinton received all the illegal contributions from Charlie Trie and the likes? Trie was never prosecuted as he fled back to China.

    And the missile technology that went to China under Clinton!

  • Could Delegate's New Lawsuit Derail Trump's Nomination?

    Beau Correll, a Republican National Convention delegate who served as one of Cruz’s campaign co-chairs in Virginia’s 10th district, is the only named plaintiff in the suit, but he’s filed it on behalf of Virginia’s 49 Republican and 110 Democratic delegates.

    It challenges a Virginia law that states: “Delegates and alternates shall be bound to vote on the first ballot at the national convention for the candidate receiving the most votes in the primary unless that candidate releases those delegates and alternates from such vote.”

    The complaint reads: “The First Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees delegates to the Republican Party’s and Democratic Party’s national conventions the right to vote their conscience, free from government compulsion, when participating in the selection of their party’s presidential nominee.

    Nonetheless, Virginia law acts to strip them of that right, imposing criminal penalties on delegates who vote for anyone other than the primary winner on the first ballot at a national convention. That law cannot be sustained under the First Amendment or as a legitimate exercise of Virginia’s authority under the United States Constitution.”

    “Based on these reports, Correll is concerned that voting against Trump at the convention may subject him to retaliatory litigation by Trump, Trump’s campaign, or other persons or entities associated with Trump, based in part on Section 545(D),” the complaint reads.

    Correll’s attorneys filed an injunction declaring Correll will need protection from prosecution under the state law because he plans to vote against Trump at the convention.

    “Correll, like many other Republicans, refuses to cast his first-ballot vote—or any other vote—for Virginia primary winner Donald Trump because Correll believes that Trump is unfit to serve as President of the United States. Yet, if he does not vote for Trump, he faces criminal penalties, including fines and imprisonment,” they write in the injunction.

    Germany should be next in a revolt against Merkel.

    Here is a tidbit that explains Merkel:

    At school, she learned to speak Russian fluently, and was awarded prizes for her proficiency in Russian and Mathematics. Merkel was educated in Templin and at the Karl Marx University, Leipzig, named after the German communist philosopher Karl Marx, where she studied physics from 1973 to 1978. Only after 1991, following the reunification of Germany, the University’s name was restored to the original Leipzig University.
