Saturday, January 30, 2016


All they that heard it wondered at those things.
  Luke 2:18
"We must not cease to wonder at the great marvels of our God.
It would be very difficult to draw a line between holy wonder and real worship; for when the soul is overwhelmed with the majesty of God's glory,.... Our incarnate God is to be worshipped as "the Wonderful." ..... you will be afraid to sin against such a love as this.
Who can be astonished at anything,
when he has once been astonished at the manger and the cross?
Dear reader, it may be that from the quietness and solitariness of your life, you are scarcely able to imitate the shepherds of Bethlehem, who told what they had seen and heard, but you can, at least, fill up the circle of the worshippers before the throne, by wondering at what God has done."
Charles Spurgeon

Papal Notes - Jesuit "Dear Pope Francis"

.... that thou shalt be no priest to me:
seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God
Hosea 4:6
"Children may say the darnedest things, but when it comes to questions about faith they can make even the most learned parents and priests pause.
"These are tough," Pope Francis said when presented with questions from 30 children from around the world.
Jesuit Father Antonio Spadaro, who went through the questions with the pope, said half the time he personally was stumped when thinking about how he would have responded. But the pope wasn't.

The questions, illustrated with the drawings of the children aged 6-13, and the pope's answers will be published March 1 as the book "Dear Pope Francis."
"What did God do before the world was made?" one child asked. "Do bad people have a guardian
angel, too?" asked another.

In the book, coordinated and published by the U.S.-based Loyola Press, Pope Francis responds to those and 28 other queries; some of the questions are theological, others are practical and a few are about the pope personally, including what he wanted to be when he grew up.

Father Spadaro heads La Civilta Cattolica, a Jesuit journal filled with articles on philosophy, theology, literary criticism and political theory. He has never worked with young children and said he was in awe of how the pope handled the questions -- taking them seriously and responding to them honestly and clearly.
Some of the pope's answers, he said, are "inspired."

"This is important," Father Spadaro said. "It says a lot about the magisterium of Pope Francis; he knows his ministry can reach children."

At the request of Loyola Press, Father Spadaro asked Pope Francis last May if he would be willing to do the book.
Loyola Press then reached out to dozens of Jesuits and collaborators around the globe, asking them to solicit questions and drawings from children. Sometimes Loyola had to ship off crayons, markers and paper because the children had none.

For the answers, "I was not just taking dictation," Father Spadaro said. The pope enjoys a conversation; for the book, that meant the pope would sometimes discuss the questions and potential answers with the Jesuit scribe and, often, would return to add something to an answer after they had already moved on to other letters.
"He's a volcano," Father Spadaro said.

The pope would look off into space as if picturing the children and responding to them in person, usually in Spanish, but sometimes in Italian, the Jesuit said.
The questions stayed with the pope, who later referred to some of them in speeches and homilies, he said. The most noticeable example was the question from 8-year-old Ryan in Canada about what God was doing before creation.
In the pope's unscripted talk at the Festival of Families in Philadelphia in September, Pope Francis told the crowd, "A young person once asked me -- you know how young people ask hard questions! -- 'Father, what did God do before he created the world?'"

"Believe me, I had a hard time answering that one," the pope admitted in Philadelphia. "I told him what I am going to tell you now. Before he created the world, God loved, because God is love."

Although it might not be "theologically precise," the pope said that night, God's love was so great that "he had to go out from himself, in order to have someone to love outside of himself. So God created the world. ...  But the most beautiful thing God made -- so the Bible tells us -- was the family."
Pope Francis will have a chance to meet nine or 10 of the children in late February when he has promised a private audience for some of the people who took part in the project." CNS

Amos Analysis 8:10

Walk through Amos, verse by verse, with the great Bible Commentaries of Matthew Henry (1662 - 1714) & Adam Clarke (1760 - 1832)


And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day. KJV
{And I shall convert your feast days into mourning, and all your songs into wailing; and I shall bring
in on each back of you a sackcloth, and on each head of you baldness; and I shall put it as the mourning of [an] one begotten son, and the last things thereof as a bitter day.}Wycliffe's Bible
A bitter day - A time of grievous calamity.

Creation Moment 1/31/2016 - VO

I will praise thee;
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
Psalm 139:14
"The vestibular organ (VO) resides inside the semicircular canals of the inner ear and senses head motions in all directions and all six rotations. It must have a process to dampen its sensitivity when the body itself causes motion. Without this dampening function, intentional body movements would disrupt balance—imagine getting motion sick every time you go for a jog. How does your VO protect against self-inflicted motion sickness? The answer involves a mechanism with precision parts and precise timing that has every characteristic of fine-tuned, intentional design.

The team found that when tadpoles initiated swimming motions, their tiny spinal cords sent out two copies of the swim signal—one goes to the body's swimming muscles, and another goes to the VO. They published their results in Nature Communications.
This second signal notifies the VO that voluntary motion is about to happen, instantly calibrating the super-sensitive, miniaturized, motion-detecting equipment. By dampening the intrinsic sensitivity of the hair cells, the input from the spinal cord effectively adapts the VO's dynamic range

How could a system with this kind of exquisite timing—the brain, brainstem, spinal cord, spine, ear, VO, neurons, and muscles all working in exacting and concerted harmony to make seamless locomotion—have originated?" ICR

....and all the world wondered after the beast.
Revelation 13:3
"Oscar-nominated actor Leonardo DiCaprio had a private meeting
with Pope Francis Thursday, Vatican Radio confirmed.
DiCaprio, a long-time environmentalist, ..... the two share an interest in climate change issues and an ability to influence others.
Earlier this month, DiCaprio received an award at the World Economic Forum in Davos,

IN the NEWS - Al Gore Prophecy Fails

They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creation rather than the Creator, ....And many false prophets shall rise,...
Romans 1:25NET/Matthew 24:11

The High Priest of the GREEN RELIGION, Al Gore, has been exposed as also being just another False Prophet of their Religion....

"In January, 2006 — when promoting his documentary, An
Inconvenient Truth — Gore declared that unless we took “drastic measures” to reduce greenhouse gasses, the world would reach a “point of no return” in a mere ten years. He called it a “true planetary emergency.” Well, the ten years passed today, we’re still here, and the climate activists have postponed the apocalypse. Again.
Gore’s prediction fits right in with the rest of his comrades in the wild-eyed environmentalist movement. There’s a veritable online cottage industry cataloguing hysterical, failed predictions of environmentalist catastrophe.
In reality, I respect the wild-eyed rapture-pastors far more than the climate hysterics. They merely ask me to believe, they don’t use the power of government to dictate how I live. Pastors aren’t circumventing the democratic process to impose dangerous and job-killing environmental regulations. Draconian fuel-economy standards have actually cost American lives. And now the coal industry is reeling in part because of stringent EPA standards." NationalReview

IN the NEWS - Trump the one???

And he causeth all, both small and great,
 rich and poor, free and bond,
to receive a mark in their right hand,
 or in their foreheads:
Revelation 13:16
Glenn Beck gave a warning about Trump......

"Glenn Beck penned a lengthy Facebook note Tuesday night reacting to Donald Trump’s decision to skip Thursday’s Fox News debate, calling the Republican frontrunner a “bully” and warning about what his presidency could mean for America.

“I warn you:
Donald Trump or anyone that is
* a big government progressive
* with narcissistic tendencies
* who will preach populism and nationalism
* in a time of economic and social unrest
is a dangerous road to go down,” he wrote."  TheBlaze

Consider our times in Biblical Context....
* The 2300 days/years have expired and the Judgment is under way (Daniel 8:14)
* Knowledge has rapidly increased in the last century...and now we are a "global village" (for when the debate over the mark of the beast begins everyone will hear)
* The counterfeit Latter Rain Lucifer through into Christianity at the turn of the last century..sort of a pre-emptive strike. (the gibberish tongues, signs & wonders crowd)
* The Little Horn/Beast has had it's deadly wound healed over the last is an actual LITTLE HORN. (the Vatican is a nation/"horn" power with ambassadors and a member at the U.N.)
* The "Nations are angry"....united in anger at ISIS
* The "shaking" among the "remnant" group for the end is in full swing--from celebration services dividing God's congregations, to woman ordination, to evolution, spectrum magazine, to leaders embracing emergent church speakers, a transgender elder now in California, etc.
* The rise of the GREEN Religion calling for a "Green Sabbath" to let the earth rest and the Papacy releasing it's Green Encyclical calling for a Sabbath rest for earth (MIT alumni just organized to push for a GREEN Sabbath)
* The whole LGBT-mania sweeping the earth including America in just the last 3 years...(like "the days of Lot"/SODOM)
* The level of time spent on entertaining of self - --video games, movies, music, sports, ipads, etc... (like the partying in the "days of Noah")

So will Trump be the next President, be a "bully" on the world stage to help implement the mark???
WHO KNOWS?.....He may not even get the parties nomination...and if so, may not win....

P.S.----WE ARE NOT saying that IF Trump wins he will implement the mark of the beast....ANY President could be the one, especially one you wouldn't expect....we're just saying it's something on the world stage to watch...that's all....

Amos Analysis 8:9

Walk through Amos, verse by verse, with the great Bible Commentaries of Matthew Henry (1662 - 1714) & Adam Clarke (1760 - 1832)


And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day: KJV
{And it shall be, saith the Lord, in that day the sun shall go down in midday, and I shall make the earth to be dark in the day of light.} Wycliffe's Bible
I will cause the sun to go down at noon - This may either refer to that darkness which often
precedes and accompanies earthquakes, or to an eclipse. Abp. Usher has shown that about eleven years after Amos prophesied there were two great eclipses of the sun; one at the feast of tabernacles, and the other some time before the passover. The prophet may refer to the darkness occasioned by those eclipses; yet I rather think the whole may refer to the earthquake.
 Job’s sun went down at noon; many are taken away in the midst of their days, and their sun goes down at noon. In the midst of life we are in death. Thus terrible are the judgments of God to those that sleep in security; they are to them as the sun’s going down at noon;

Psalm 136:5
"To avoid the circular fallacy, logic dictates that
the cause of nature must be beyond nature. That, right there, falsifies scientism but it also establishes the requirement that the supernatural must be taken into account in humanity's pursuit of answers -- not just with respect to the origin of the cosmos and of life, but in discussions of justice, beauty, morality, love, and honor." — Kirk Durston, Evolution News & Views 8/07/15

The Race

"In the hope of impressing vividly upon the minds of the Corinthian believers the importance of firm
self-control, strict temperance, and unflagging zeal in the service of Christ, Paul in his letter to them made a striking comparison between the Christian warfare and the celebrated foot races held at stated intervals near Corinth.

Of all the games instituted among the Greeks and the Romans, the foot races were the most ancient and the most highly esteemed. They were witnessed by kings, nobles, and statesmen. Young men of rank and wealth took part in them and shrank from no effort or discipline necessary to obtain the prize.
The contests were governed by strict regulations, from which there was no appeal. Those who desired their names entered as competitors for the prize had first to undergo a severe preparatory training. Harmful indulgence of appetite,
or any other gratification that would lower mental or physical vigor,
was strictly forbidden. For one to have any hope of success in these trials of strength and speed, the muscles must be strong and supple, and the nerves well under control. Every movement must be certain, every step swift and unswerving; the physical powers must reach the highest mark. As the contestants in the race made their appearance before the waiting multitude, their names were heralded, and the rules of the race were distinctly stated.  Then they all started together, the fixed attention of the spectators inspiring them with a determination to win. The judges were seated near the goal, that they might watch the race from its beginning to its close and give the prize to the true victor. If a man reached the goal first by taking an unlawful advantage, he was not awarded the prize.  In these contests great risks were run. Some never recovered from the terrible physical strain. It was not unusual for men to fall on the course, bleeding at the mouth and nose, and sometimes a contestant would drop dead when about to seize the prize. But the possibility of lifelong injury or of death was not looked upon as too great a risk to run for the sake of the honor awarded the successful contestant. As the winner reached the goal, the applause of the vast multitude of onlookers rent the air and awoke the echoes of the surrounding hills and mountains.
In full view of the spectators, the judge presented him with the emblems of victory
--a laurel crown and a palm branch to carry in his right hand.
His praise was sung throughout the land; his parents received their share of honor; and even the city in which he lived was held in high esteem for having produced so great an athlete.

 Paul emphasized the preparation necessary to the success of the contestants in the race
--the preliminary discipline,
the abstemious diet,
the necessity for temperance.
"Every man that striveth for the mastery," he declared, "is temperate in all things." The runners put aside every indulgence that would tend to weaken the physical powers, and by severe and continuous discipline trained their muscles to strength and endurance, that when the day of the contest should arrive, they might put the heaviest tax upon their powers. How much more important that the Christian, whose eternal interests are at stake, bring appetite and passion under subjection to reason and the will of God! Never must he allow his attention to be diverted by amusements, luxuries, or ease. All his habits and passions must be brought under the strictest discipline. Reason, enlightened by the teachings of God's word and guided by His Spirit, must hold the reins of control."
Acts of the Apostles p.309,310 E.G.W.

SCAM ALERT - "LOVE GIFTS" to Bakker....? - WHY would you?

....neither did my shepherds search for my flock,
but the shepherds fed themselves,
and fed not my flock;.... Behold,
I am against the shepherds;
and I will require my flock at their hand,
Ezekiel 34:8,10

"Jailed televangelist and accused rapist Jim Bakker is back in business hawking survivalist kits including everything from padded clothing to buckets of beans to enemas
  • The 74-year-old pastor served five years of a 45-year sentence for stealing MILLIONS from The PTL (Praise the Lord) Club
  • 'Money's gonna be worthless when disaster strikes,' Bakker shouted to the audience of his new TV ministry, urging them to buy his supplies
  • While married to Tammy Faye Bakker he was accused of raping church secretary Jessica Hahn and had to resign 
  • He paid her $279,000 to keep quiet
  • Tammy Faye divorced him in 1992; she died of cancer in 2007

The disgraced 74-year-old pastor, who served five years of an original 45-year prison sentence for fraud and conspiracy, has also got a daily TV broadcast that airs on various Christian TV stations. On it, he's promoting his Morningside Church – a Christian retreat and retirement community set on 600 acres of land near Branson, Missouri.
Of course, Bakker doesn't technically own Morningside.  He still owes the IRS more than $6 million in taxes he neglected to pay in the 1980s. 
And their big push right now is on survival products, which Bakker calls 'Love Gifts.'
Among the offerings are the Time of Trouble Beans Offer, consisting of 14 totes full of black bean burger mix for $3,000; Bakker's Dozen Extreme Canteen Kit, including 13 packs of ponchos, thermal blankets, glow stick and whistles for $500; and his Survival Food Brick Monthly Club with 90 servings of food for $50 per month.
And $3,000 will buy you seven whole years of food packets with a bonus of TWO survival DVD's – providing your DVD player still works post disaster. 
There's one more bonus if you hurry… A LARGE PRINT Bible – perhaps in case you misplace your glasses while running for your life. 
But that's not all folks! You're gonna need a survival suit.
'Bakker's survival gear is made out of a sort of Khaki green padded nylon,' says a source familiar with the line. 'But by the time you dress everyone in your household – it could cost you a small fortune
'You'll pay $200 for each pair of suit pants, and another $200 for each jacket. And if you're a plus size… add in an extra $50. The hood will also cost you $50 bucks, and add another $40 for each pair of padded mittens. Of course you can't forget the boots – they're gonna add another $50 to your bill. 
'So if you have a family of five, plan on spending about $2700 on each outfit. Of course if you live in the south, you can forgo the heavy survival gear and just make sure you ordered enough food buckets in case the neighbors drop by."
Hey people....let's STOP with the "Love Gifts" to the Bakkers.... you're just lining his pockets again....

Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein? and it shall rise up wholly as a flood; and it shall be cast out and drowned, as by the flood of Egypt. KJV
{Whether on this thing, the earth shall not be moved together, and each dweller thereof shall mourn?
And it shall go up as all the flood, and shall be cast out, and shall float away, as the strand of Egypt.} Wycliffe's Bible
Shall not the land tremble for this - It is supposed that an earthquake is here intended, and that the rising up and subsiding as a flood refers to that heaving motion that takes place in an earthquake, and which the prophet here compares to the overflowing and subsiding of the waters of the Nile. But it may refer to commotions among the people.

Creation Moment 1/29/2016 - Sputnik Planum

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son,...
 by whom also he made the worlds;
Hebrews 1:2

"Pluto: It’s officially published in peer-reviewed literature: the

surface of Sputnik Planum on Pluto cannot be more than 10 million years old......Elizabeth Howell writes, “There’s a lack of craters on its surface, making it a unique area on Pluto and a rare spot in the solar system — it turns out it could be very young terrain indeed.”

The article goes on to postulate 3 ways the surface might have been rejuvenated:

(1) relaxation of nitrogen ice, erasing the craters;
(2) ice on the bottom rising to the top (the lava lamp theory);
(3) The ice could be partially melted at its bottom and from time to time, erupt on to the surface as cryo-lava.

Each of these ideas, though, would have to explain how such processes could be ongoing for billions of years on a world that should be frozen and geologically dead.

Pluto’s “huge” ice volcano named Wright Mons. It’s the largest such feature in the solar system, but on one of the smallest of planets—and it may still be active. The article begins, “Pluto’s weirdly dynamic and ‘young’ surface...."

If it looks young, let it be young! They won’t ever consider that, we know, because Charlie, their idol, needs lots of time for Tinker Bell do her evolutionary magic on Earth." CreationEvolutionHeadlines

Letter of Giovan Paschale

And he shall speak great words against the most High,
and shall wear out the saints of the most High,
Daniel 7:25
A glimpse into that wearing out of the saints during the 1260 year reign of the Little Horn power

An excerpt from a letter of Waldensian pastor Giovan Paschale, who was hanged in Rome in 1560.


. . . we are 80 to 100 persons held in this dark place, and although we may escape being devoured by the lice, we are at the same time near to death by hunger. Who will doubt that all of us would willingly forego all that we possess in this world rather than to be condemned forever to this misery? . . .
Some will say that they do not sense in themselves the strength to die for Jesus Christ. I reply to them that those who fear to be overcome ought at least to struggle and to achieve a fleeting victory. For to flee is permissable, but to bow the knee before Baal is forbidden under the penalty of eternal punishment . . . .
I can testify that with a little bread and water the body can be satisfied, whereas the soul will never find satisfaction until it finds food which nourishes the hope of eternal life. And what is that if it is not the preaching of the Holy Gospel, of which you may be deprived? If, therefore you desire satisfaction, prepare yourselves to go to the place where your soul is peaceful. Thus you will quieten your conscience, you will find rest, you will confess Jesus Christ, you will edify the Church, and you will confound your enemies.
Your brother in Jesus Christ,
Giovan Luigi Paschale


SCAM ALERT - Hank Kunneman

Hank Kunneman (a self proclaimed charismatic "prophet") recently
claimed on camera that God came down and discussed politics with him--- specifically Obamacare & gay marriage. He claims he asked God about the legalizing of gay marriage in America and that God turned and looked at the Mercy Seat.....he also claimed this year in 2016 God will burn the weapons of North Korea.
He also claims God showed him someone in Israel will make a major breakthrough in cancer research...
Do you really believe Hank Kunneman has seen the Mercy Seat? Do you really believe God will strike North Korea in 2016 because Hank says so?

Hey Hank, tell us how the SCAM works....{this is a transcript of his words from Sid Roth's It's Supernatural online}... "SidNow when God calls people out by their name is it just the first name or is it the whole name sometimes.

Hank: Sometimes for example how it works with the word of knowledge at least in my ministry is sometimes
the Lord will say “There is someone here named so and so you have this symptom.” 
Other times I’ll look at somebody and like how the writing was over the wall in the days of Hezekiah, a writing, like a name, will appear over their head.  Sometimes it will appear above them. 
I’ll point my finger to a gentleman perhaps John, if that’s the name that I see and of course you know they say yes.  Sometimes it’s been their last name; other times it’s been their address."

Q: When was there writing over the wall in the days of Hezekiah? Did Hank mean in the days of Belshazzar? Or does the False Prophet not know the difference between Isaiah & Hezekiah / Daniel & Belshazzar?
But there were false prophets also among the people,
even as there shall be false teachers among you,

SDA History - Hotel Anthrax

Behold, we are servants this day,
Nehemiah 9:36
"In the 1950s, the Seventh-day Adventist Church struck an extraordinary deal with the US Army. It would provide test subjects for experiments on biological weapons at the Fort Detrick research centre near Washington DC.
The volunteers were conscientious objectors who agreed to be
infected with debilitating pathogens. In return, they were exempted from frontline warfare. Fort Detrick was working on weapons it could use in an offensive capacity as well as ways of defending its troops and citizens. Hotel Anthrax uses declassified documents, evidence from Senate investigations and personal testimony to trace the American bio-weapon programme during this period. The research involved anthrax, other lethal bacteria and biological poisons." BBC  "Other Adventists point to the mid-fifties when this shift occurred in the thinking of Adventist leadership. The church historically remained separate from the other Christian denominations, but changed that stance when it joined the Evangelical conferences of 1955-56. This move into the ecumenical movement coincided with the advent of Project Whitecoat, both a result of the church's quest for acceptance in the mainstream." PW

Creation Moment 1/28/2016 - Spiritual "Progressives" on the Creation

Cosmic-New Age psycho-babble on "creation" below--
"The grandeur of creation comes to full expression in the creation of human beings.  Complexly magnificent, able to be conscious of ourselves, able to transcend that which is and to move towards what ought to be,  human beings were “created in the image of God” and reflect the universe’s greatest outpouring of love and
But also, “nothing more than dust and ashes.”  We are part of the totality of all that is, and we are ever arrogant when we see ourselves as somehow better than everything else, as having the right to use everything else for our own ends.  We are here on the planet for a brief moment, and for much of that time we are deeply enmeshed in foolish schemes to perpetuate ourselves for eternity, imagining that if we amass enough power or control we can somehow live forever.
Emancipatory Spirituality offers a different kind of immortality, not a promise that our own individual personalities with their specific sets of memories and experiences will last forever, but the immortality of being part and parcel of the totality of all being.  To appreciate this second kind of immortality, we need to reach a fuller awareness of our place in the universe and our identity as manifestations of the totality of all that is.
We are “holons,” entities who are simultaneously separate beings seeking to maintain our own individual existence and parts of something much bigger than ourselves.  In the contemporary world, it’s easy to understand the consciousness of ourselves as separate beings, but it’s very hard to develop a sense of ourselves as part of the unity of all being." NetworkOfSpiritualProgressives

1- Adam was created as a unique individual being---not part of some vast spiritually interconnected cosmic plasma or energy field. Eve was created as a separate but distinct individual from Adam. All their offspring share the same unique individuality.
2- As for "using" things to our own ends....things of nature were placed here for mankind to use. Mankind was given dominion over the earth. The earth was not given dominion over man. Here we have the roots of the mentality of the GREEN RELIGION (modern environmentalism) on display - turning God's design upside gay marriage does.
3- What was a "Holon" again???
....always learning but never able
to come to a knowledge of the truth.

Undertaking a Work Not Called to

"I have been shown many who will claim to be especially taught of God, and will attempt to lead others, and from mistaken ideas of duty they will undertake a work that God has never laid upon them. Confusion will be the result. Let everyone seek God most earnestly for himself that he may individually understand His will."
Testimonies For The Church 14,p.181 E.G.W.

Health Note - Magnesium

I pray that you in health,...
3 John 1:2
"Most people are magnesium deficient.
If you drink soda,
 eat white bread,
white rice,
saturated fats or
other processed foods – you’re most likely deficient.

It’s a challenge to avoid these foods all the time. But, at least we can replace needed vitamins and minerals when we need to.
According to a study from the University of Southern California School of Medicine, Magnesium (Mg) deficiency commonly occurs in critical illness and correlates with a higher mortality and worse clinical outcome in the intensive care unit (ICU).”

Health Benefits of Magnesium

Magnesium is a mineral that is essential for our survival. Treat it as a secret weapon against sickness and disease.
We need it not only for strong bones, healthy immune system, energy production, it also helps regulate other vitamins and minerals in our body.
Health benefits of Taking magnesium:
  • Improves sleep
  • Reduces stress
  • Loosens & relaxes muscles
  • Detoxification support
  • Healthy teeth
  • PMS relief

Many health experts suggest adults need about 1,000 mg of magnesium per day, even though the RDA is between 310-420 mg. You can get your levels checked by your doctor to see just what your body is doing. Other factors to remember are that proper levels of vitamin D3, vitamin B6 and selenium also play a role in maintaining healthy levels of magnesium.
Severe deficiencies can lead to depression, osteoporosis, diabetes, ADHD, among many others chronic illnesses. But here are a few signs you may be suffering from magnesium deficiency…
Signs of magnesium deficiency:
  • Exhaustion
  • Confusion
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • You can’t sleep
  • Abnormal heart rhythm
  • Muscle cramps
  • Tantrums
  • Asthma
  • ADHD/Austim
  • Constipation
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • High blood pressure
  • IBS
  • Obesity
But, simply getting the amount of magnesium your body needs may just be enough to reverse many of these chronic illnesses." NaturalHealthyConcepts

The "Really" File - (MUXES - 3rd Gender?)

Because that, when they knew God,
they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful;
but became vain in their imaginations,
and their foolish heart was darkened.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness
through the lusts of their own hearts,
 to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Romans 1:21,24

"Every November in Juchitán, Oaxaca, the four-day long celebration ‘La Vela de las Auténticas Intrépidas Buscadoras del Peligró’ (The Celebration of the Bold Seekers of Danger) takes over the streets, as locals gather in honor of the members of their third gender.

Muxes (pronounced Moo-Shay) are born men, but are trained from
a young age by their family and friends to dress and live as women, in a Zapotec tradition that began before the Spanish colonisation of Mexico. They are considered a blessing in Zapotec culture, with most families consisting of one Muxe, who now often resumes the role of caretaker in the family.

Locals say that they have “fallen from a broken pocket of San Vicente Ferrer”, the patron saint of Juchitan, during his holy walk over the town (a local expression to say they are lucky, chosen people).

Los Muxes (which in Zapotec language means homosexual) are a distinct third gender. They are not necessarily gay. Some take female lovers, some take male lovers. And while many dress as women (these are called Vestidas), some do not. The less common Pintadas wear make up but dress as men.

Each year, up to 5,000 other men, women and muxes come 
From the "Really" File
together for the huge, four-day celebration which ends in the crowning of the Queen.

The celebration has grown vastly over the past 40 years, since its beginning as a humble reunion-style party for a few older muxes celebrating their lives together. Today, it stands as a booming testament to a tradition that has withstood time and its many political and cultural upheavals and conflicts." BuzzWorthy
