Health Note - Most Cancerous Food

Beloved,
I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health,
3 John 1:2

Microwave Popcorn

 

"Those little bags of popcorn are so convenient to just stick in the microwave, you wouldn’t think for a minute that they could be dangerous to your health, but they are.
First, let’s talk about the bag itself. Proved by Wikipedia, conventional microwave popcorn bags are
lined with a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid ( PFOA). This is a toxin you can find in Teflon also. According to a recent study at the University of California, PFOA is linked to infertility in women. Numerous studies in lab animals and humans show that exposure to PFOA significantly increases the risk of kidney, bladder, liver, pancreas and testicular cancers.
Now, let’s talk about the contents. Although every manufacturer uses slightly different ingredients, most of them use soybean oil (a GMO product) as well as various preservatives such as propyl gallate, a chemical that is causes stomach problems and skin rashes. Now they don’t actually say they are using GMO corn kernels, but that’s because the government says they don’t have to. Even if they don’t use GMO corn, you can bet they aren’t using organic corn!
Also, applied to the popcorn itself, is a chemical called diacetyl. Use of this chemical caused Conagra Foods to remove it from their brand of popcorn, ACT, because it was causing lung diseases in the workers at their factory." NaturalOn

The What, Why & Because of Sin

The What, Why & Because of Sin


And why dost thou not pardon my transgression,
and take away mine iniquity?

for now shall I sleep in the dust;

and thou shalt seek me in the morning,
but I shall not be.
Job 7:21

WHAT?
For the wages of sin is death;
Romans 6:23
WHY?
.....the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
Ezekiel 18:4
BECAUSE:
....for sin is the transgression of the law.
1 John 3:4

Footsteps of Paul: Jupiter & Mercury

And there sat a certain man at Lystra,
impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother's womb,
who never had walked:
The same heard Paul speak:
who stedfastly beholding him,
and perceiving that he had faith to be healed,
Said with a loud voice,
Stand upright on thy feet.
And he leaped and walked.

And when the people saw what Paul had done,
they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia,
The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men.


And they called Barnabas, Jupiter;
and Paul, Mercurius,
because he was the chief speaker.
Then the priest of Jupiter,
which was before their city,
brought oxen and garlands unto the gates,
and would have done sacrifice with the people.
Which when the apostles,
Barnabas and Paul, heard of,
they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people,
crying out,


And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things?
We also are men of like passions with you,
and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God,
which made heaven,
and earth,
and the sea,
and all things that are therein:
Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.
Nevertheless he left not himself without witness,
in that he did good,
and gave us rain from heaven,
and fruitful seasons,
filling our hearts with food and gladness.


And with these sayings scarce restrained they the people,
that they had not done sacrifice unto them.
Acts 14:8-18
"The apostles endeavored to impart to these idolaters a knowledge of God the Creator and of His Son, the Saviour of the human race. They first directed attention to the wonderful works of God--the sun, the moon, and the stars, the beautiful order of the recurring seasons,..." Acts of the Apostles p.180 E.G.W.

Creation Moment 11/30/2014 - Thought Control?

Genes can be switched on
using the power of thought,
a study reports.

"Brainwaves from human participants activated a tiny light which had been implanted in mice.
This LED then activated light-sensitive genes which had been genetically engineered to respond in this way.
"At first you may ask why should I think something and then control my genes? I could push a button and [also] induce the LED.
"The reason is, we've designed it for potential application for locked-in patients who can no longer
communicate with the outside world other than with their mental activities and brainwaves.
"This sounds like science fiction but it's an obvious interconnection of different technologies."
The team placed an electroencephalography device (EEG) on participants' foreheads to record their brainwaves. They asked them to adopt three different mental states, such as concentration versus relaxation.
The resulting electrical signals were then used to switched on the infrared LED light which activated a gene. The resulting proteins could then be monitored in the blood stream.
Illuminating genes
"In all of these three different mental states we saw very specific brain activities and these were translated via the LED to very specific illumination of the designer cells. In response those (genes) produced proteins that were then circulating in the animal," Prof Fussenegger explained." BBC
Think for a moment about the creation of the angelic hosts....created higher than man. Think of the kinds of "genes" they may have built in, such as things along these lines & more....
But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death,
Hebrews 2:9 which was like unto.....And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:8

THE little THINGS

"It is by small things that our characters are formed to habits of integrity. Nothing with which we have to do is really small. Every action is of some account, either on the side of right or on the side of wrong. It is only by exercising principle in small transactions of ordinary life that we are tested
and our characters formed. In the varied circumstances of life we are tested and proved, and thereby we acquire a power to stand the greater and more important tests that we are called to endure, and are qualified to fill still more important positions. The mind must be trained through daily tests to habits of fidelity, to a sense of the claims of right and duty above inclination and pleasure. Minds thus trained do not waver between right and wrong, as the reed trembles in the wind; but as soon as matters come before them, they discern at once that principle is involved, and they instinctively choose the right without long debating the matter."
Testimonies for the Church vol.3, p.22 E.G.W.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten:
be zealous therefore, and repent.
Revelation 3:19

Papal Notes - Animals go to Heaven?

"Animals, too, go to heaven. That, at least, was one interpretation of remarks made by Pope
Francis in his weekly general audience in the Vatican.
The endlessly controversial 77-year-old pontiff said: “The holy scripture teaches us that the fulfilment of this wonderful design also affects everything around us.”
The pope went on to quote from St Paul, St Peter and the Book of Revelation in support of the view that “what lies ahead … is therefore a new creation”.
He added: “It is not an annihilation of the universe and all that surrounds us. Rather it brings everything to its fullness of being, truth and beauty.”
Italian daily Corriere della Sera was in no doubt about his meaning. “It broadens the hope of salvation and eschatological beatitude to animals and the whole of creation,” wrote the paper’s Vatican specialist in an article published on Thursday." TheGuardian

Uhmmm.....with all due respect Francis....when U say....
"It is not an annihilation of the universe and all that surrounds us"...
Oh yes it is.....

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
2 Peter 3:10
For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven;
Malachi 4:1

I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.
Jeremiah 4:23


Creation Moment 11/29/2014 - Quasar's Missing Ingredient

" * Quasars are galaxies with very active supermassive black holes at their centres.
* These black holes are surrounded by spinning discs of extremely hot material that is often spewed out in long jets along their axes of rotation.
* Quasars can shine more brightly than all the stars in the rest of their host galaxies put together.

"The first odd thing we noticed was that some of the quasars' rotation axes were aligned with each other -- despite the fact that these quasars are separated by billions of light-years," said Hutsem├ękers.
The team then went further and looked to see if the rotation axes were linked, not just to each other, but also to the structure of the Universe on large scales at that time.

When astronomers look at the distribution of galaxies on scales of billions of light-years they find that they are not evenly distributed. They form a cosmic web of filaments and clumps around huge voids where galaxies are scarce. This intriguing and beautiful arrangement of material is known as large-scale structure.

The new VLT results indicate that the rotation axes of the quasars tend to be parallel to the large-scale structures in which they find themselves. So, if the quasars are in a long filament then the spins of the central black holes will point along the filament. The researchers estimate that the probability that these alignments are simply the result of chance is less than 1%.

"The alignments in the new data, on scales even bigger than current predictions from simulations, may be a hint that there is a missing ingredient in our current models of the cosmos," concludes Dominique Sluse." ScienceDaily

I got your "missing Ingredient " right here---

SDA News - Egyptian Classification of Church

"Seventh-day Adventist Church officials in Egypt are expressing concern over a proposed draft of the nation’s Personal Status Law that would classify the Adventist Church as a non-Christian denomination.
Local Adventist Church officials said the new classification would have a negative impact on the Church’s work and image among other Christians in Egypt.
Johnny N. Salib, Assistant Secretary of denomination’s Egypt-Sudan Field, said the current draft of article 112 of the proposed new civil law for non-Muslim minorities would put the Adventist Church in different category of religious denominations. 
Salib said the current draft of the law was submitted to the Egyptian government more than three decades ago but was not adopted. Over the years, Adventists have made several attempts to meet with leaders of other Christian groups in Egypt to explain the denomination’s Protestant identity. Still, no steps have been taken to remove Adventists from the list of non-Christian churches.
Now, as Egypt is heading toward building a more democratic Constitution, the law proposed by the Christian minority is under serious discussion.
“I am saddened by the fact that some churches consider us as a non-Christian denomination, while the government recognizes us as Christians and gives us our full freedom to worship,” Salib said.
On Sunday, a delegation from the denomination’s Egypt-Sudan Field will meet with the Ministry of Transmitting Justice to discuss the matter. Church officials have already sent a letter to news agencies pointing out that the Adventist Church has existed in Egypt for more than 100 years and was officially registered in the early 1950s, Salib said."

Creation Moment 11/28/2014 - Invisible Shield Found

Scientists Discover An Invisible Shield Surrounding Earth, Baffled At How It Formed


"Scientists have discovered something truly remarkable in the Earth’s atmosphere. An invisible shield is located approximately 7,200 miles above Earth that scientists are likening to “force fields on Star Trek.”

According to Front Line Desk, the shield was discovered in the Van Allen radiation belts, two
doughnut-shaped rings above Earth that are filled with high-energy electrons and protons. Held in place by Earth’s magnetic field, the Van Allen radiation belts swell and shrink in response to incoming energy disturbances from the sun.


According to their research, the third belt is located between the previously known inner and outer Van Allen radiation belts. This belt is different in that it seems to come and go as space weather changes.

The purpose of the ring was quite clear to the researchers — the ring is used to block killer electrons from entering deeper into the Earth’s atmosphere. These electrons can be extremely devastating at their near-light speed and have been known to threaten astronauts, fry satellites and damage space systems.

Prior to the invisible shield discovery, scientists assumed that electrons making it into the upper atmosphere of the planet would be dispersed by air molecules, but it looks like these particles don’t even get that far thanks to Earth’s invisible electron shield.
Now that the scientists know the invisible shield exists, they are trying to determine how it was formed and exactly how it works.

“It’s almost like these electrons are running into a glass wall in space. It’s an extremely puzzling phenomenon.”" Inquisitor

Papal Notes - Pope at EU Parliament

The 14 Papal phrases that triggered applause
in the European Parliament
As the Pope addressed the European Parliament,
legislators broke out in applause a total of 14 times. 

1.- HUMAN DIGNITY 2.- LIFESTYLES 3.-LIFE 4.- RELIGION AND VIOLENCE
5.- RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION AND SILENCE 6.- OUTSIDE INFLUENCES
7.- FAMILY 8.- ENVIRONMENT 9.- HUNGER 10.- EMPLOYMENT 11.- IMMIGRANTS
12.- IMMIGRATION POLICIES 13.- PEOPLE AT THE CENTER
14.- STANDING OVATION "The time has come for us to abandon the idea of a Europe which is fearful and self-absorbed, in order to revive and encourage a Europe of leadership, a repository of science, art, music, human values and faith as well. A Europe which contemplates the heavens and pursues lofty ideals. A Europe which cares for, defends and protects man, every man and woman. A Europe which bestrides the earth surely and securely, a precious point of reference for all humanity! Thank you!” RomeReports

P.S.-  MEP Mizzi responds to opponents of the Pope speaking there.....
"MEP Mizzi pointed out that Pope Francis is not only a religious leader, but is
also a Head of State, and he should be received with the courtesy normally accorded to Heads of State by the EP, as had been done on other numerous occasions.
Mizzi further stated that ‘’nobody is obliged to agree with his religion or politics. Nobody is obliged to accept his ethics or opinions. But few would doubt that the message of this man will be that of unity, peace and goodwill – values which should be everybody’s irrespective of political or religious beliefs”." Independent

When was the last time the head of the Methodist, Lutheran, Episcopal, Presbyterian, 7th Day Adventist, Orthodox, or other church was allowed to speak to the EU?
  Pope Francis isn't the Little Horn (of Daniel) or the Beast (of Revelation) but he is the head of that entity-Papal Rome

ARCHAEOLOGY: Arctic Cancer


For we know that the whole creation
groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
Romans 8:22


The Greenland mummies



"The inuit were confirmed to have cancer, while eating a purely native paleo style diet.

The inuit bodies were riddled with carcinoma

The inuit while on their paleo primal diet were found to have extensive bone joint lesions.

The inuit gave birth to children with birth defects while eating paleolithic type diet.

The inuit were found to have given birth to a child with downs syndrome (sloped forehead, demented) while on paleo diet

Inuit bodies were found stricken with perthes disease, a wastage & disintegration of the leg bone (hip), and may have gone limp.

A female inuit, on the inuit traditional primal solution diet, was possibly hit with breast cancer.

The inuit cancer in the woman had metasticized and spread throughout her body in multiple lesions while eating paleo.

All of the inuit person's teeth had fallen out, while eating paleo, and appeared to be infected with gum disease.

While on the meat based paleo diet, they got infected with pinworms - small parasites living in their abdomen, often sourced from ingesting meat.

All of the paleo inuit meat-eaters were infested with head lice - nits. As well as egg-larvae.


Medical evidence now confirms that the inuit got cancer while on a pre-contact primal paleo diet.
"Few hunter-gatherers survive long enough to develop cardiovascular disease or cancer, major causes of mortality in America and Europe today." -(Dunn pp. 223-224)

[In other words, claims of Hunter-Gatherers or the Inuit not getting cancer or heart disease were merely because they were already dead, due to the poor lifespan of Inuit, African Tribes, and Hunter-Gatherers. They had already died from yet another disease before budding cancer tumours could fully manifest, before it metasticized, or they
were already dead potentially from meat parasites, botulism, ecoli, salmonella or bacteria from spoiled decaying meat, or DNA damage from heme iron which is only in meat and heme-iron damages human DNA.Mann writes:

"Occasional writers have claimed that certain primitive populations are "cancer-free" or "heart disease-free," but sound evidence to support such contentions is lacking, and evidence to the contrary has been steadily accumulating."
-(Mann et al., 1962).
In other words, if you see a claim that the Inuit diet is healthy, or that primitive tribes, hunter-gatherers, cavemen, or the Inuit were somehow "amazingly" free of cancer or heart disease, that is false. That claim breaches science. It is fallacious. And the individual making such a claim is either not fully scientifically competent in the subject, or, they are intentionally trying to advance a non-scientific agenda or perhaps some product such as a book or a product such as "fishoil", and making claims that the inuit or primitive populations were healthy in order to promote a diet or product of some sort. If you see any claim that the Inuit or some native tribe did not get cancer or heart disease, it is a known ruse, unscientific, and no matter how convincing they might appear, it has already been proven medically false."

The Greenland Mummies
by Jens Peder Hart Hansen
                    pages 192  Publisher: Mcgill Queens Univ Pr; First Edition edition (March 1991)

"How did they die? Why were they buried together? What had been the nature of their culture and beliefs? How had they survived in the harsh Arctic climate? To solve this icy mystery, a team of archaeologists, historians, and medical specialists used modern, innovative investigative techniques. They carried out their detective work with keen scholarly curiosity, combined with respect for these people of the past. While many puzzles have been answered, others remain unsolved. The
investigation has revealed that the younger child was buried alive at the age of only six months, while the other, two and a half years old, had been born with Down's syndrome. Analysis of the hair of the mummies revealed evidence of air pollution at levels similar to those of today. Speculating on reasons for a mass grave -- a form of burial the Inuit normally used only because of some catastrophe -- the researchers have reconstructed the possible events of the past. The contents of the grave shed light on the every-day life of these people, allowing the investigators to place this evidence within the larger context of Thule culture and knowledge of Inuit contact with the Norse settlements which dotted the outer margins of Greenland during the medieval era. The Greenland Mummies brings the compelling story of this fervent collaboration to the attention of the world. Not only does it provide a fascinating and insightful look into the life and culture of the Inuit in the fifteenth century, it offers an impressive testament to one of the most successful archaeological investigations ever conducted."
Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
Genesis 11:9

Cold Case Christianity
by J. Warner Wallace
Pages: 224  PublisherDavid C Cook 2012

"A riveting journey through Christianity using the analytical lenses of a former atheist and L.A
. County homicide detective!
Christianity, with all of its claims could easily be described as a "cold-case"; a case for which insufficient hard evidence exists to make any sound conclusions about its truth claims. However, in Cold-Case Christianity, J. Warner Wallace uses his nationally acclaimed skills as a homicide detective to look at the evidence and eyewitnesses behind Christian beliefs.
He includes gripping stories from his career and the visual and interrogation techniques he developed in while a police officer. Along the way, he uses analogy and anecdotes to examine the powerful evidence that validates the claims of Christianity.
A unique apologetic that speaks to readers' intense interest in detective stories, Cold-Case Christianity inspires readers to have confidence in Christ as it prepares them to articulate the case for Christianity."

ARCHAEOLOGY: Arctic Indians

Therefore is the name of it called Babel;
....:and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
Genesis 11:9
"A single founding population settled,
and endured the harsh conditions of the Arctic,
for almost 5,000 years”
Dr Maanasa Raghavan

“The Dorsets were the Hobbits of the eastern Arctic -- a very strange and very conservative people who we’re only just getting to know a little bit,” anthropologist William Fitzhugh," IBT

"Archaeologists mapping ancient cultures in the North American Arctic—a region spanning present-day Greenland—have long puzzled over how different cultures relate to one another. Now, an unprecedented large-scale genomics study has traced many such cultures to the Paleo-Eskimos, a
people who early inhabited the harsh environment continuously for 4000 years, only to vanish mysteriously about 700 years ago. The discovery could change how scientists understand migration patterns in the North American Arctic.

Maanasa Raghavan of the University of Copenhagen and her colleagues collected bone, teeth, and hair samples of 169 ancient humans from different time periods in the New World Arctic region. The team generated mitochondrial DNA and low-coverage whole genome data from these samples. They also sequenced genomes from present-day Inuits and Native Americans—the latter marked a first in research, as Native Americans often refuse DNA testing. The team obtained tribal permission with help from an indigenous woman.

After comparing the ancient and modern genetic data, the researchers found that the Saqqaq and Dorset cultures belonged to one Paleo-Eskimo people, whose genetic lineage continued in the region for more than 4000 years, from 3000 B.C. to 1300 A.D., contradicting previous theories that the diverse cultures came from different peoples.

The Paleo-Eskimos are genetically distinct from Native Americans and Inuits, which means they represent a separate, later pulse of migration into the New World. This contradicts previous theories that humans arrived in the Americas in three waves, painting a scenario of four waves instead—the Amerinds, the Na Dene Native Americans, the Paleo-Eskimos, and the Neo-Eskimo Thules.


Those residing in southern Canada would have shared the land with Native Americans for thousands of years, he says, yet genetic and archaeological evidence indicates no signs of mingling or intermarriage. “When we see people meeting each other, they may fight each other, but normally they also have sex with each other,” he says. “That does not seem to be the case here.”
In fact, genetic analysis shows that all Paleo-Eskimos shared the same mitochondrial DNA, which is passed from mothers to children. This unusual homogeneity suggests few women were among the early Paleo-Eskimo settlers, Willerslev says.

The finding is consistent with previous Y-chromosome analyses that suggest early Paleo-Eskimo settlers could have ranged from as few as 40 to 50 people closely related to one another, says anthropologist Theodore Schurr of the University of Pennsylvania, who was not involved with the research. Science


DNA sequences from living and ancient inhabitants show a single influx from Siberia produced all the "Paleo-Eskimo" cultures, which died out 700 years ago.
The lack of any genetic cross-over may indicate that the previous inhabitants died out before the Thule arrived; it also "raises the question", according to Prof William Fitzhugh, another author of the study, of a possible "prehistoric genocide".
And yet Inuit legend suggests only friendly relations between their Thule ancestors and the "gentle giants" who preceded them.
Prof Fitzhugh emphasised he was only speculating: "We don't have any good evidence that there was hostility between the Dorset people and the Thule people." BBC

So basically, the migration from Babel included people heading east. It took apparently 4 waves (that they no of so far---the Amerindian, Na Dene, Paleo-Eskimo & Neo-Eskimo Thules) to cross into the North American region. As you can see, they suspect from DNA sequencing, that the Neo-Eskimo Thules were maybe as small as 50 people to begin with. All these groups spreading around the globe and populating, with a few exceptions, would likely be small bands of closely related people. 
Basically family clans.

Creation Moment 11/25/2014 - Both sides of the "Pond"

"When it comes to ideas about how life on Earth originated, Americans and Brits see things very differently.
While 40% of British adults think living things arose because "conditions here on Earth happened to be suitable," (a basic tenet of evolution) just 15% of  Americans  believe that's what happened,...

Practically the reverse is true for creationism, which is much more popular in the U.S. While just 15% of adults in the UK think all living things were created by God, more than half of Americans  (53%) do.

American beliefs about evolution fall pretty strictly along political party lines. While just 43% of Republicans said in 2013 that they believe humans and other living things have evolved over time, 67% of Democrats said they think that's the case...."

The Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6

So Why did Christ come down here?
1) To show us the Father
2) To die on mankind's behalf
3) To show He can sympathize with our feelings
4) To qualify Himself in the eyes of His creation to be our Redeemer

IN the NEWS - Rain Tax the Churches?

....but he taxed the land to give the money according to the commandment of Pharaoh:
2 Kings 23:35

"Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley made national news last year when he fought to pass and signed a tax bill that levied a tax on Marylanders, businesses and churches for the amount of “impervious surface” they have on their property.
Though the O’Malley administration calls it a “fee,” it is commonly called the rain tax throughout the state. It is wildly unpopular and the promise to fight to repeal the tax was a large factor in Maryland electing Republican Larry Hogan governor this month.
Now Prince George’s County is offering a way for churches to avoid paying the tax, which is estimated to be an average of $744 per year for them — preach “green” to their parishioners.
So far 30 pastors have agreed to begin “‘green’ ministries to maintain the improvements at their churches, and to preach environmentally focused sermons to educate their congregations” to avoid being hit with the tax, The Washington Post reports." Frontpage

Creation Moment 11/24/2014 - Difficult holding View

"When one considers that * the most reasonable explanation for the
fossils in various rock strata is a sudden catastrophic burial--along with * the absence of transitional fossil forms in the rock strata, the * presence of collagen in dinosaur bones supposedly millions of years old, and * the measurable 14C in that collagen--it becomes very difficult to hold an old earth view." Dr. Vernon Cupps (former evolutionist)

3 Lessons from the Temptation of Christ


Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness
to be tempted of the devil.
Matthew 4:1

3 Lessons from the Temptation of Christ
1) Appetite- He was tested on self
2) Presumption- He was tested as to His pride to sin willfully
3) Love of the world- He was tested to see where His heart lay

IN the NEWS - "Christian" Stampede


Then the LORD said unto me,
The prophets prophesy lies in my name:
I sent them not,
neither have I commanded them,
neither spake unto them:
they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination,
and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
Jeremiah 14:14
"Eleven people were killed and dozens injured in a stampede at a stadium in Zimbabwe, as thousands of people at a church service tried to leave through the same exit, police said on Friday.
Around 30,000 people packed into a stadium in Kwekwe, 130 miles west of Harare, on Thursday evening to listen to Walter Magaya, a pastor who draws huge crowds, Senior Assistant Commissioner Shadreck Mubaiwa told Reuters.
When the service ended the congregation rushed toward a single exit, in a stampede that killed four people on the spot. Another seven were pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
"Police tried to rescue people but they were overwhelmed by the crowds. It is unfortunate that people wanted to rush out, which made it difficult to contain the situation," Mubaiwa said." CN

1) What kinda atmosphere is present for a sermon for this to happen? What is this guy preaching & who is he?
2) Christ fed thousands with the fish & loaves, yet I don't remember a stampede-to-death after He spoke....just saying...
SO....a little about who Mr. Magaya is----Apparently is a charismatic/fluff/prosperity style preacher like on American TV- "After receiving the Holy Spirit in 1996, he started Ministry work in line with Preaching and Healing. In 2003 he organised his first All-night prayer, that was when he first witnessed manifestation of different spirits (demons) as Jesus used him to cast out demons
tormenting his people. God moved in a Mighty way that night.
The first notable miracle was that of Mr. Nyandoro in 2013,  who was blind for 3 years had his sight restored by the power of Jesus Christ of Nazareth working through the Man of God Prophet Walter Magaya.  After this miraculous healing Prophet Magaya only shouted  "MBIRI KUNA JESU " as the whole congregation screamed with joy for what the Lord had just done."

Nationalistic Turf Fight- "Magaya was however up in arms with some Zimbabweans and the media who are quick to dismiss and cast aspersions on local prophets but reserved all the admiration for church leaders from countries such as Nigeria and Ghana.
"We got a problem, it’s actually a national crisis in Zimbabwe because people seem to easily accept foreign prophets ahead of their own," he said.
"If you check, for the many years we have been ministering nobody is really finding the good things that is happening to PHD and promote it.
"But if were to make a single mistake, you will find every paper writing about it."
Prophet Magaya said he was, in his own right, a spiritual father to over 100 local and international pastors and prophets but that has never been publicised with the same gusto that is displayed when he falters." NewZimbabwe

Adultery Scandal- "HARARE - Prophet Healing and Deliverance (PHD) Ministries leader Prophet Walter Magaya’s adultery charges have taken a new twist after the woman alleged to be having an illicit affair with the celebrity preacher dispelled the claims.
This comes after Denford Mutashu filed a lawsuit against the popular prophet, demanding $500 000 in adultery damages from Magaya for allegedly having an affair with his wife, Memory Nomsa Ruvazhe.
Mutashu has also filed criminal charges against the prophet, accusing him of bigamy and making death threats against him.
But in a July 30 affidavit seen by the Daily News, Ruvazhe strenuously denies having an affair with Magaya.
She claims that she began having problems with her husband after she visited Magaya’s guest house in Marlborough, where she stayed for three days seeking spiritual guidance and divine healing.
Mutashu claims Ruvazhe was cohabiting with Magaya for the three days and the prophet was having an inappropriate sexual liaison with his wife.
“When I returned from the guest house, I started having problems with my husband with him accusing me of being in love with the prophet,” Ruvazhe said in the affidavit." DailyNews
