THE SINKING SHIP - a dream by Jack Ely

I had this dream a good many years ago. Recent talk about the Titanic
brought it to mind so I thought I would share it.

I was aboard a ship with my family. It was some sort of "Christian
Cruise" or something. All about the deck were families of Christians and
the atmosphere was one of merriment and socializing, kind of like a
Church picnic.

The ship was slowly sinking and this was not hidden from anyone for all
knew it to be absolutely true. As we socialized and talked we would
occasionally go to the railings and look overboard to try to gauge how
much longer we might have.

There seemed to be two mindsets about our plight. Most believed that we
would be rescued long before the ship sank. Others, like myself, thought
we would probably have to abandon ship. The former group accused the
latter of being pessimists and having no faith. The latter, smaller
group thought they were wiser.

Even though there were no lifeboats, there was no sense of panic.
Regardless of which belief you held, you could look and see that the
shoreline was not too far away. It would be a strenuous swim, to be
sure, but we all figured we could make it if we had to.

Looking over on the shore I saw the figure of a man and as I watched I
realized that it was an old Apostle. No one seemed to notice him except
me, or at least, if they did, they chose to ignore him. He was jumping
up and down loudly and cupping his hands to his mouth in a frantic
effort to make himself heard.  The distance was much too far for his
voice to travel but I understood that he was warning of danger and this
caused me to try to figure out for myself what he was saying.

Suddenly, in an instant, it dawned on me. We were slowly but surely
drifting farther and farther from the shore and the currents were
getting stronger all the time. Not only was the swim going to be more
difficult the longer we waited, but if we waited too long, the suction
of the ship would pull us under and we wouldn't be able to escape. I
started telling everybody as frantically as the old Apostle on the
shore that we had to get off NOW before it was too late!

I pointed people to the old Apostle and told them to listen to him. Very
few believed that what I was telling them was what he was actually
saying though I knew with absolute certainty that it was. They watched
him with amusement but they found me annoying. The message burned inside
of me deeply though and I both reasoned and pleaded with the men to take
their loved ones and swim for their lives.

Some jumped overboard with their families and swam for shore. The old
Apostle ran up and down the shore line helping them out of the water,
embracing them and drying them off while I was on the ship pleading with
all earnestness. We were working together with all of our might and
effort, united in one spirit to save as many as we could.

Though the situation was perilous, there was also joy unspeakable and
full of glory shared between myself, the old Apostle, and the families
warming themselves on the shoreline.

I would have gone down with the ship if the Lord wanted me to but I had
my own family with me and when I realized that no one else was going to
listen, I threw them overboard and told them to swim as fast as they
could and not look back. I gave one last warning and jumped over to help
my own family to shore.

That was the end of the dream.  I awoke immediately and knew the Lord
had spoken to me from heaven, thus qualifying me as an "old man"
according to Joel and Peter.

Seeing the movie "Titanic" I was amazed to learn that the "suction"
principle was actually true. I also found it interesting that an
explosion on the ship caused many of those who were being sucked down to
be pushed back up to the surface. This spoke to me that Got is not
willing for any to perish but wants ALL to come to repentance.

UN Warns Next Global Recession May Trigger Sovereign Debt Default Contagion-Update World Economy



Read more: https://sputniknews.com/world/20160926/1045691714/global-recession-sovereign-debt-crisis.html

The UN Conference on Trade and Development rang the alarm on the possibility of a global debt default contagion due to international economies' over-reliance on deficit spending, low interest rates to stimulate economies.

The next economic crash may be the last warns trade economists at the United Nations cautioning that the next global recession could quickly get out of control plunging the world into an economic depression and resulting in a post-apocalyptic failing of major governments as the world’s bond market teeters on the precipice of a full-on meltdown.

As capital begins to flow out, there is now a real danger of entering a third phase of the financial crisis which began in the United States housing market in late 2007 before spreading to the European sovereign bond market," said the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

In the wake of the 2008 economic collapse, countries around the world forced their economies afloat by flooding the market with cheap money by artificially lowering interest rates to near zero – an unprecedented rate point at which benchmark rates have remained for nearly 8 years now.

Alarm bells have been ringing over the explosion of corporate debt levels in emerging economies, which now exceed $25 trillion. Damaging deflationary spirals cannot be ruled out," the report remarks. In the event of an economic slowdown, the experts caution, the massive debts held by bondholders may not be redeemed forcing whole economies into default.

Large emerging economies including Brazil, Russia and South Africa may be the worst hit in the event of another economic slowdown as they are the most likely to face a credit crunch from lenders who are unwilling to renew their debt or buy more pushing borrowing costs to unprecedented levels.

The US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power © AP Photo/ Virginia Mayo US Ambassador to UN Hints at Removal of Russia From Security Council Over Syria Nonetheless, major Western economies may also feel the squeeze in the event that international credit markets freeze up due to massive issuances of debt. In the United States the national debt is quickly nearing $20 trillion with the danger that interest payments may soon overwhelm the budget – particularly if credit is limited forcing interest rates on repayment upwards. The pressure would most likely be felt most immediately on companies in emerging market economies who are forced to borrow money in a depressed financial sector with risk appetites festering but the decrease in national growth in countries around the world could quickly spread the contagion to the nation-state level.

Deutsche Bank Stock Plunges To All Time Low After Merkel Rules Out State Bailout; Default Risk Surges

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-09-26/deutsche-bank-stock-plunges-all-time-low-after-merkel-rules-out-state-bailout-defaul

See site for the graphs and Pics.

As reported over the weekend, in an unexpected announcement Angela Merkel announced that she has ruled out state aid for Deutsche Bank, and the market reaction has been swift and brutal, with the bank's shares tumbling to a new all time low, sliding more than 6% this morning to €10.70, amid concerns that mounting legal bills, including a looming fine over its pre-crisis mortgage bond business, may force the lender to raise capital.

The 38-member Bloomberg Europe Banks and Financial Services Index slipped 1.5 percent, with Deutsche Bank the worst performer.

The company's contingent convertibles have been likewise dragged down. The lender’s 1.75 billion euros of 6 percent additional Tier 1 bonds, the first notes to take losses in a crisis, fell about 2 cents on the euro to 73 cents, near a seven-month low, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Quoted by Bloomberg, Daniel Regli, an analyst at Main First, said that “clearly headlines around the DoJ settlement and those $14 billion continue to weigh on the stock. Nobody believes that they will end up paying that amount, but for some investors it might be a concern that even the German government is discussing Deutsche Bank’s situation."

For those who missed it on Saturday, chancellor Angela Merkel ruled out state aid for Deutsche Bank ahead of national elections in September 2017, Focus magazine reported last week, citing unidentified government officials. The German leader also declined to step into the bank’s legal imbroglio with the Justice Department, the magazine reported.

Germany’s biggest bank would be “significantly under-capitalized” even assuming enough provisions to cover the settlement in the mortgage securities case, Andrew Lim, an analyst at Societe Generale SA, said in a note earlier this month. A settlement range of $3 billion to $3.5 billion would leave the bank room to settle other legal issues, while any additional $1 billion in litigation charges would erode 24 basis points in capital, JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts wrote.

Meanwhile, the government is stepping its rhetoric, with Merkel’s government saying it sees “no grounds’’ for speculation over state funding for Deutsche Bank, top spokesman, Steffen Seibert told reporters in Berlin moments ago, adding that there "are no grounds for such speculation" Seibert tells reporters in Berlin. "The government won’t participate in any such speculation."

Seibert responded to report in Focus that Merkel has ruled out state assistance for Deutsche Bank. Merkel regularly meets German banking executives, Seibert says, declines to confirm a meeting with Deutsche Bank CEO John Cryan. Seibert reiterates Germany expects a "fair result" in Deutsche Bank talks with U.S. authorities.

Not everyone is sad this morning, however: short sellers have renewed their wagers against the bank. Bearish bets rose to 3% of shares outstanding on Sept. 22 from almost a three-month low of 1.7% on Sept. 16, according to data compiled by Markit Ltd. At this rate, many more short sellers are expected to join the fray.

Dave Hodges Insider, 'Trump Told, EMP To Halt Election If He’s Selected'... Trouble??

NOTE: I do not endorse Lisa Haven. Sometimes OK , but sometimes a bit out there. All in All She means well and works hard. This is a video with Dave Hodge, this is why I post it and insight from the maker of Ammerigidon (Gary Heavin.). A True , honest, great man. I just saw it, great movie, saw it free, free is always good, a must see.

Dave Hodges is in with Steve Quayle, and others, and so I also do not fully endorse Dave Hodges . I agree it may not be an EMP so TPTB will still have power where needed but an attack on all, maybe some, of the power grid.

I have warned many times about an EMP, or however, we will see no power soon. I do not know how, but I know we will not have power. He also speaks of Germany falling and will be what starts the world economic collapse, also the use of bio -weapons . The lord told me 7 years ago, once he provides the Goshen Temporary save haven , 'we would not die, nor catch any global; virus'. I have spoken for years, also on my herb blog, about the super bugs and deathly viruses. Pray, and have on hand Chinese skullcap, it is a super survival anti viral herb.

Some do not agree, concerning a black out, I have said to them, 'when we have an economic collapse and you can not pay your bills, how long do you think utility Co. Will let you have free service'? So no matter what, we will have no power and all should prepare for this.

The Bank in Germany is in free fall, and Germany told recently for the citizens to have supplies, food, water, medical, another couple EU countries have said to do this, so it's coming .

Remember the word posted a long, long, time -the EU falls first and days after the USA. The EU is right now in an economic free fall. It is coming to pass.

Lastly, over the years, Dave Hodges, a lot of what he said never happened, like Quayle and others, so we do not know.

God knows and God has warned , again Sept to Nov end it's happening as the lord said, repent, accept Jesus, we are now in very serious times.

What Happens During An EMP Attack? Can You Survive?



This morning I published an article which detailed 4 different sources which leads on to conclude that an EMP may be used to derail the election.

This articles details the dangers associated with an EMP attack not including nuclear power plant meltdowns.

Top scientists and knowledgeable politicians (e.g. Congressman Trent Franks) tell us that it would cost the nation alone up to $2 trillion in the first year. It could take four to10 years to recover and would fatally impact 90% of the U.S. population, meaning widespread starvation and death. Yet, experts tell us the cost to harden the electrical grid would be no more than $2 billion, several times less than the cost of a single bail out paid to the bankers. What could possibly explain this inaction on the part of the Obama administration especially after they planned for this event? And why were our enemies, the Communist Chinese given a front row seat when this event was practiced on November 13-14, 2013? Why are we allowing the Chinese Solar Energy Zones to be constructed next to major energy sources such as hydroelectric and nuclear power? The treasonous implications are so obvious that Ray Charles could see what is coming. When the moment of the EMP attack occur, what will America look like a few seconds later?
Transportation

In one of the most dramatic effects, airplanes would fall from the skies. Untold thousands of people would immediately be plunged to their deaths. And their deaths might be considered merciful compared to the fate that the majority of the rest of us would face over the next two years. Most automobiles will not work unless they have all pre-electrical parts. Even then how long would gasoline be available? Many people on the various subways, would be hopelessly trapped depending on the time that an electromagnetic pulse would be released.

Hospitals

America would see catastrophic conditions immediately take place in our hospitals and convalescent centers. Within a few days, old age homes would lack the resources and services of the staff to help preserve the lives of those who are virtually helpless. Patients on the operating table would stand a good chance of not surviving. Hospital backup generating systems would be rendered unusable. Food and water would become a scarce resource. Many hospital personnel would walk off the job by the beginning of the third day. The only medical personnel that would stay would be those that live too far away from home to walk. People would not be able to get their life-sustaining medications and services, most of which are electrically powered. Our worst fears would be realized.
Schools and Children

One of the most tragic developments arising from an EMP attack with the fate of school children geographically isolated from their parents who have already commuted to work. Reuniting parents and their children would be next to impossible for the majority of Americans who have a 30 minute commute or more to work (20 miles). In an article published the past year, I identified and detailed the questionnaire which went out to all school personnel which was inventorying staff school individual skill sets such as law enforcement experience, construction, as well electrical and engineering talents. Sounds like a strange set of skills to be surveying at our public schools. What do the originators of this document know that the rest of us should? If you were a teacher, how long would you stay on the job and ignore the welfare of your family? Getting home and reuniting with family will be problematic.
Communications

Your cell phones, your land lines, text, twitter, emails and faxes will not work. Nearly all broadcast stations, especially television stations, would go off the air. Due to the high level of computerized automation, the equipment in most radio and television studios would be so completely destroyed that most commercial stations would be damaged beyond repair.

Radio studios are actually more vulnerable to permanent damage than many portable radio receivers. When America emerges from the event, the NSA police state surveillance grid would be permanently in place for the extreme martial law dictatorship that will follow. According to a statement of Damon Penn, a DHS official, made to a committee of the U.S. House of Representatives on July 8, 2011, a limited number of critical radio stations are being retrofitted with some EMP protection. However, most of us will be without the benefit of mass communication. Somewhere between 250,000 to 500,000 people will die in the first few minutes. Perhaps as many as 1-2 million would be dead within three days.

Water Borne Diseases

The greatest threat to human survival, in the aftermath of an EMP attack, is the public’s availability to obtain clean drinking water. This access would be greatly imperiled. In 2010, when Haiti was hit by a major earthquake which killed over 200,000 people, the misery did not stop with the survivors. Six weeks following the earthquake, Haiti announced its first cholera outbreak in over a century. The cholera outbreak went on to claim 8000 more lives. The disease thrives in places where there is insufficient water treatment, poor sanitation and inadequate hygiene. This is what precisely would happen in most areas following an EMP attack. Keeping drinking water clean and separate from human sewage and other contaminates would prove to be humanity’s biggest challenge. Cholera would also prove to be the biggest threat to long term survival. It is likely that in the 24 months following the event, that most people would succumb to cholera and other water-borne diseases. Cholera is a horrible disease which grants its victims a very painful and agonizing death. In the 20th century, human lifespan in United States increased by 35 years. Thirty of those 35 years was due to improvements in sanitation. Following an EMP attack, effective sanitation would all but disappear.
Access to Water

Human beings require approximately 2 Liters of water per day in order to survive. If we do not get that water, we will die in approximately 5 days. With regard to an EMP attack, our water supplies are especially vulnerable. The power to distribute water is highly concentrated within the United States. Only eight municipalities provide 82% of the drinking water in the United States. There are multiple technologies which are used to pump water from the source to its final destination. Some require no electricity, however, most do. And even if your water system was powered by non-electrical means, how would the personnel and staff, who monitors and maintains your water supply, get to work without proper transportation? In all of Southern California, the water must make its way over mountains. What will happen when all electricity is gone? The resulting casualty rates stemming from civil disorder and death due to lack of water would be unimaginable. In a time of an EMP attack, the availability of water, as well as the safety of water would come into question for the vast majority of Americans. The availability of clean water supplies would be the most critical threat and would claim the most victims. These grim possibilities makes one wonder why T. Boone Pickens is buying up the Ogallala reservoir. What does he know that the rest of us should know?

Food

The food supply would be imperiled as well. What do crops need to grow? With hydroelectric power gone, where would the water come from for many food-growing regions in the country? Our food supplies would dry up and disappear, thus exacerbating the threat. Most people will perish within 30 days of famine, thus, making water shortages the greatest threat to survival.
How Bad Will It Get?

Sociologists tell us that there are five levels of societal development.

1. Nomadic Hunting and Gathering

2. Horticulture and Pastoral

3. Agriculture

4. Industrial

5. Post-industrial.

Much of America is entering into the Post-Industrial phase. An EMP attack would reduce most Americans to a violent existence in the first stage, Nomadic Hunting and Gathering. Without easy access to water, most would not be able to maintain a Horticulture and Pastoral society for long. And those that did would face dire threats from those seeking resources. This would make the death curve for the elderly and the infirm skyrocket. Child mortality would dramatically rise. A pre-Revolutionary War existence would largely be out of reach because of the lack of obtainable clean water. Water is the organizing foundation for any society. Society, as we know it, would collapse.

I have read the Naval War College projections which tell us that within two years of the event, 90% of all Americans would be dead. In the video below, Congressman Franks predicts a 60% mortality rate. The fact remains that nobody knows for certain how many of us would perish. However, it is safe to say that most of us will die. Both Steve Quayle and Doug Hagmann have been warning about the dangers posed by Chinese troops on our soil. In the following video, feast your eyes on what many say could not happen, Chinese troops on American soil!

For a mere two billion dollars, the United States has the ability to mitigate most of the damage of an EMP attack. It is the height of treason to not make this national defense priority number one. And then to make matters worse, we give the Chinese the keys to the car when we invite them to participate in a drill which allowed them to see how to take down the grid.

Don’t you just love and admire the patriotism of Senator Harry Reid for promoting and profiting from the Chinese Solar Zones which now provides the Chinese with easy access to our energy suppliers?
Conclusion

The biggest threat to our society is the melt down of nuclear plants following an EMP. However, as the readers can see, there are literally a thousand ways to die when an EMP hits. Do you have your guns, ammo, medicine, gold, Bible and allies. We could be in for a wild ride.

Deuteronomy 8:1-10
Remembering the Lord Your God (Part 1)

Deu 8:1-10 "All the commandments that I am commanding you today you shall be careful to do, that you may live and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the LORD swore to give to your forefathers. (2) "You shall remember all the way which the LORD your God has led you in the wilderness these forty years, that He might humble you, testing you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not. (3) "He humbled you and let you be hungry, and fed you with manna which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD. (4) "Your clothing did not wear out on you, nor did your foot swell these forty years. (5) "Thus you are to know in your heart that the LORD your God was disciplining you just as a man disciplines his son. (6) "Therefore, you shall keep the commandments of the LORD your God, to walk in His ways and to fear Him. (7) "For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills; (8) a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; (9) a land where you will eat food without scarcity, in which you will not lack anything; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills you can dig copper. (10) "When you have eaten and are satisfied, you shall bless the LORD your God for the good land which He has given you.

It seems the ancient Israelites needed to be reminded repeatedly that if they followed the commandments of God then they would have many wonderful blessings in life. These blessings did not necessarily come automatically based merely upon the fact that they were believers, but were also the byproduct of simple obedience. Forty years of wandering in the wilderness was ordained by God in order to produce both faith and obedience. The Israelites were a "stiff necked" people-just as we can be today, even as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Let's break the first 10 verses down.

Verse 8:1
Deu 8:1 "All the commandments that I am commanding you today you shall be careful to do, that you may live and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the LORD swore to give to your forefathers.


I found several very good commentary sources on this verse. Here are some I thought were especially worthy:


All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do,.... It is repeated over and over again, to impress it on their minds, and to show the importance and necessity of it, how greatly it was expected from them, and how much it was incumbent on them:
that ye may live and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers; for their temporal life, and the mercies and comforts of it, the multiplication of their offspring, and of their substance, their entrance into the land of Canaan, possession of it, and continuance in it, all depended on their obedience to the commands of God; By John Gill


Here is the new generation, standing on the east bank of the Jordan River. They are ready to cross over into the land with high anticipation and hope. As Moses is preparing them to enter the land, he encourages them to obey God. McGee




Lastly let's look at this excerpt which I found to be an outstanding introduction to Chapter 8:




Remember the Lord's Blessings When Things are Bad
The words of Moses in Deuteronomy 8 impress upon Israel the need to learn a significant lesson from their past: Their experience of God's care in the wilderness period, when they were unable to help themselves, was to teach them humility through the Lord's providential discipline. The memory of that experience should keep them from pride in their own achievements when entering the secure and prosperous land of Canaan.
The Value of the Wilderness Experience
Every difficult situation carries with it the possibility of an equal or greater benefit. Our willingness to learn from our trials will determine whether or not we attain those benefits. George Mathison prayed, "My God, I have never thanked Thee for my thorns. I have thanked Thee a thousand times for my roses, but not once for my thorns. I have been looking forward to a world where I shall get compensation for my cross; but I never thought of my cross itself as a present glory. Teach me the glory of my cross; teach me the value of my thorn, show me that I have climbed to Thee by the path of pain. Show me that my tears have made my rainbow."
This was the attitude Moses wanted for his people. He wanted them to "remember" their wilderness experience. "Remembering" is a common theme throughout Deuteronomy. Thirteen times in this book Moses asks the people to "remember." Usually they are reminded of their deliverance from Egypt, but here the emphasis is on their wilderness journey. Many valuable lessons are to be learned from this experience.
The Preacher's Commentary


Verse 8:2-3
Deu 8:2-3 "You shall remember all the way which the LORD your God has led you in the wilderness these forty years, that He might humble you, testing you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not. (3) "He humbled you and let you be hungry, and fed you with manna which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD.
God led them into the desert where they had no alternative but to trust Him or to murmur against Him. In the desert they could not produce their own food but had to depend on God for food and thus for their very lives. When Moses reminded them that they did not live on bread alone he meant that even their food was decreed by the word of God. They had manna because it came by His command. It was therefore ultimately not bread that kept them alive but His word! “Bread alone,” that is, bread acquired independently of His word, could not keep them alive.
Bible Knowledge Commentary


God wanted them to remember all that He had brought them through, all the testing and all that He taught them.


Psa 77:11 I shall remember the deeds of the LORD; Surely I will remember Your wonders of old.
2Pe 1:12-13 Therefore, I will always be ready to remind you of these things, even though you already know them, and have been established in the truth which is present with you. (13) I consider it right, as long as I am in this earthly dwelling, to stir you up by way of reminder,


It was God who led them in the wilderness.


Amo 2:10 "It was I who brought you up from the land of Egypt, And I led you in the wilderness forty years That you might take possession of the land of the Amorite.




Then, just as now it was a matter of pride which was theur greatest stumbling block.
2Ch 32:26 However, Hezekiah humbled the pride of his heart, both he and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that the wrath of the LORD did not come on them in the days of Hezekiah.


Isa 2:17 The pride of man will be humbled And the loftiness of men will be abased; And the LORD alone will be exalted in that day,


Jas 4:6 But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, "GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE."


They were being tested to know what was in their hearts.
Pro 17:3 The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold, But the LORD tests hearts.
And this from the book of Revelation. This verse comes with a warning: a woman named Jezebel-considered to be a prophetess taught the believers that it was OK to be sexually immoral.
Rev 2:23 'And I will kill her children with pestilence, and all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds.


We repeat verse 3:
"He humbled you and let you be hungry, and fed you with manna which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD.


Jesus quoted this verse when the devil tempted him to turn stones into bread (Mat_4:4). Many people think that life is based on satisfying their appetites. If they can earn enough money to dress, eat, and play in high style, they think they are living "the good life." But such things do not satisfy our deepest longings. In the end they leave us empty and dissatisfied. Real life, according to Moses, comes from total commitment to God and living by every word that comes from him. How can we live by his word? (1) Recognize our need for it. (2) Agree that God alone can truly satisfy us. (3) Pray for God's presence, wisdom, and direction as we read. (4) Savor the relationship you have with him through Christ. (5) Practice what he teaches you. The Life Application Study Bible


Concerning the manna that God provided for them, read this from the Psalms:


Psa 78:23-25 Yet He commanded the clouds above And opened the doors of heaven; (24) He rained down manna upon them to eat And gave them food from heaven. (25) Man did eat the bread of angels; He sent them food in abundance.


Also remember what Jesus said:
Mat 4:4 But He answered and said, "It is written, 'MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.'"


Verse 8:4
Deu 8:4 "Your clothing did not wear out on you, nor did your foot swell these forty years.
This sounds really good doesn't it? The Israelites were learning to depend on God for everything.
The Lord disciplined Israel by making her depend on Him for everything: food, water, and clothes. Since all these were provided by His decree the only logical response was to observe (obey) the commands of the Lord, following and revering Him.
Bible Knowledge Commentary


Verse 5
Deu 8:5 "Thus you are to know in your heart that the LORD your God was
disciplining you just as a man disciplines his son.
that as a man chasteneth his son, so the Lord thy God chasteneth thee; that they stood in the same relation to God as a son to a father, and therefore happy and honourable; that all their afflictions came from God, were appointed, sent, directed, and overruled by him for his own glory and their good; that these were the chastenings and corrections of a father, and were not done in wrath, but in love, and therefore should be patiently endured; and it became them to consider well from what hand they came, and in what manner, and for what ends and purposes, how they ought to behave under them, and what they should do, as follows. John Gill


2Sa 7:14 "I will be a father to him and he will be a son to Me; when he commits iniquity, I will correct him with the rod of men and the strokes of the sons of men,


Psa 94:12 Blessed is the man whom You chasten, O LORD, And whom You teach out of Your law;
Verse 6
Deu 8:6 "Therefore, you shall keep the commandments of the LORD your God, to walk in His ways and to fear Him.


Again we shall quote John Gill:
Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God,.... Not only because they are the commands of God, and of a covenant God and Father, which are reasons sufficient for the observance of them; but because the Lord had dealt so bountifully with them, in providing food and raiment for them in the wilderness, which always continued with them; and because, when he afflicted them, it was a fatherly chastisement, with great tenderness and compassion, and for their good; all which laid them under obligations to keep the commands of God, whatsoever he had enjoined them, whether of the moral, ceremonial, or judicial kind:
to walk in his ways, and to fear him; to walk in the ways he directed, to be under an awe of his majesty, a fear of offending him, and a reverential affection for him, such as children have to a father. John Gill


1Sa 12:24 "Only fear the LORD and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for
consider what great things He has done for you.


Psa 128:1 A Song of Ascents. How blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, Who walks in His ways.
Verse 8:7-9
Deu 8:7-9 "For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills; (8) a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; (9) a land where you will eat food without scarcity, in which you will not lack anything; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills you can dig copper.
This stands as quite a contrast to the life the Israelites had experienced the past 40 years. There would now be plenty of water for their them, their crops and animals. There would be plenty to eat with a variety of choices. They would lack nothing in the good land that the Lord was bringing them to.
Psa 65:9 You visit the earth and cause it to overflow; You greatly enrich it; The stream of God is full of water; You prepare their grain, for thus You prepare the earth.
    Psa 81:16 "But I would feed you with the finest of the wheat, And with honey from the rock I would satisfy you."
Jos 22:8 and said to them, "Return to your tents with great riches and with very much livestock, with silver, gold, bronze, iron, and with very many clothes; divide the spoil of your enemies with your brothers."


Verse 8:10
Deu 8:10 "When you have eaten and are satisfied, you shall bless the LORD your God for the good land which He has given you.


We will conclude part 1 with verse 10. I find this verse to be interesting as explained by the following two excerpts:


When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God,.... For as the Lord would furnish them with plenty of food, they might eat of it liberally, provided they did not indulge to intemperance, as everyone may whom God has blessed with a fulness of good things; and this shows that we are to return thanks to God for a plentiful meal, as well as to ask a blessing on it:
for the good land which he hath given thee; which supplied them with such plenty, that they enjoyed full meals every day. John Gill


Psa 103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits;
I had never known that verse 8:10 was cited as the reason we say grace for our meals. The following comes from the Life Application Study Bible:
This verse is traditionally cited as the reason we say grace before or after meals. Its purpose, however, was to warn the Israelites not to forget God when their needs and wants were satisfied. Let your table prayers serve as a constant reminder of the Lord's goodness to you and your duty to those who are less fortunate.


Mat 14:19 Ordering the people to sit down on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed the food, and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds,
1Co 10:31 Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1Th 5:18 in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
1Ti 4:4 For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude;


As we conclude part 1 today I believe we would do well to consider how God has brought us up out of our own bondage to sin, how He has personally brought about humbleness of heart, allowed us to become obedient to His will, and disciplined us where we have fallen short of His perfect will for our lives.


(6) "Therefore, you shall keep the commandments of the LORD your God, to walk in His ways and to fear Him. (7) "For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills;

IS It REALLY REVIVAL?

by Bryan Hupperts

There has been so much in the Christian news about a worldwide
revival taking place that I just had to start looking for it. Revival
properly understood is essentially a new beginning of obedience
to God. Jesus said you would know something by the fruit it
produces. Look at the fruit of what is occurring and then ask: Is
it really revival?

When the Spirit of God is poured over your city but husbands will
not love their wives, and wives will not obey their husbands, is it
really revival?

What the Bible is mocked and doctrine called "a divisive tool of
the devil", when the "old" gifts of the Spirit are thrown out in favor
of a new, secret gift allegedly from the Holy Spirit, is it really revival?

When the love of Unity supercedes the love of the Absolute Truth,
is it really revival?

When a move of the Spirit of God is measured by bodies piled
on the floor and not by the number of repentant prayers baptized
by tears at an altar, is it really revival?

When leaders openly confess some personal lust of their heart
and publicly challenge God with statements like, "This is the
desire of my heart and I demand this from you, Lord. If you do
not produce it immediately, on the authority of your own Word,
I declare you a liar," and then the crowd of on-looking fools
squeals "Amen!" - where is the fear of the Lord? Is this really revival?

When tried and tested prophets of the Lord warn of impending
judgment for sin and are mocked by the Christian media who
want to whoop it up with the pervading party spirit in the church,
is this really revival?

When the church is more concerned with her own welfare and
well being and not that of a lost, dying world, and calls it
"intimacy with God," is it really revival?

When "don't judge anything" is seen as a litmus test for spiritual
maturity instead of honoring the Lord who loves "righteous
judgment," is this really revival?

When churches who are claiming supernatural visitations of all
manner of angelic beings but cannot seem to open their doors
to welcome mere humans of differing color and social and
economic status, is it really revival?

When the saints of the Most High run from marathon meeting to
marathon meeting blind to the needs of the widow down the
street from them who cannot get her lawn mowed or has no one
to help her get to the market to buy food, is it really revival?

When fellowship chat lines are filled on the net with loving, wise
believers who cannot seem to spare 15 minutes outside of
cyberspace to pray with their flesh and blood spouse and children
before bed, is it really revival?

When believers can "bind the strongman" over a city but cannot
rule their own tongues, is it really revival?

When practical holiness is branded as fleshly legalism, it is really revival?

When people walk away from awesome spiritual encounters only
to then be plagued with thoughts of suicide, depression, the ability
to see demons but not angels, and a pervading sense of
hopelessness, is it really revival?

When the love of the saints is not extended to those who cautiously
question your movement, and who are then labeled, branded really,
as being possessed by "a spirit of criticism," is it really revival?

When believers flock to get a word from the prophet but cannot
seem to take the time to lock themselves in their prayer closet to
get a word from God, or better yet, simply commune with Him, is
it really revival?

When angel worship (which means paying honor and homage) is
welcomed and embraced in the church, and being touched by an
angel is somehow more glorious than being touched by the Lord,
is it really revival?

When Jesus is honored with passioned cries of "Lord, Lord," but
is then not obeyed, is this really revival?

When you finally have God figured out and can order Him around
to suit your desires, you can prophesy on cue, and behave in
such an other-worldly bizarre manner that even the cults are
afraid of you, is it really revival?

When being filled with the Holy Spirit is evidenced by all manner
of manifestation EXCEPT Holiness, is it really revival?

Have you gone to the Cross daily to die to self? Have you come
to a place of total surrender to Christ, to a new obedience to the
Living God, to a true love of the Truth and genuine worship that
springs from a cleansed, joyful heart? Is there a declaration of
the absolute Lordship of Jesus Christ in your life? If so, then
you have experienced true revival. If not, ask yourself: Is this
really revival?

Be revived, and strengthen the things that remain.

A Post From My Herbal Teaching Blog-Willow Bark and Honey-Pain Killer

Good For Pain -White Willow Bark ( Salix alba) Decoction- Strong, And Honey

http://dabaldoherbals.blogspot.com/2016/09/good-for-pain-white-willow-bark-salix.html

 Good For Pain -White Willow Bark ( Salix alba) Decoction- Strong, And Honey
Willow bark is our herbal aspirin. It is better as it does not cause stomach upset. The thing with Willow Bark , and how it works is different than OTC aspirin. Willow bark works up to 24 hours, but not one does. It normally works like this.

You take one dose, normally it may seem it did nothing, after a couple hours take a second dose, why, I am not sure, but its a fact the second dose kicks in and it last a very long time.

You can take powder caps, but far better is as follows.
A tincture dry herb 1:5 WV ratio.
A decoction-The standard decoction is 1 part herb to 32 part water,( 1 Oz herb to 32 Oz water) like an infusion, some call for an infusion to be 1oz herb to 16 oz water, Some herbs are to be done cold, this herb like most, is a hot decoction. The average for a normal strength is let it slow boil, or high simmer 20 min or so. Strain and bring back up to 32 oz water, by measuring the end product , if its 25 Oz fluid add 7 oz more water.

That is the so called rule, I like breaking rules in herbs and so should you, as an herbalist we should often try different, new was of extraction, measurements and different formulas and such. Herbalist practice is a science , but it also an art.

I have a way of using willow for pain a different way, I find it better and more effective, give this a try.

Make a decoction, a strong one, yes I know herbs if it says take 2 caps many thing 4 will work better, not always the case, so breaking some rules , I like that.
I take 1 oz willow bark, in 32 oz water, I slow boil until its reduced to 8 oz. I take the strong decoction of 8 oz and add to quality honey and put in the refrigerator. It keeps a long time. 8 or 16 oz honey and cap. Honey is a good antibacterial esp when applied on a wound, also internal and has other great things honey does. It goes hand in hand with willow bark. Take 1 Tsp, wait 2 hours or 3 and take another tsp, and in a little while you will see the difference, no side effects and you will feel better than OTC N'saids.

Honey is soothing , when taking willow you are doing so because you have pain, not just a head ache , could be head, throat , body, the Honey and willow make a great combination. Make sure to make the decoction strong and add honey, but not to much to this, like a 32 oz jar, only 6, 8, 12 oz of good honey. It will help throat pain, head, body. I take it, it works and no chocking on an OTC pill.

Note, I do the same thing with licorice root and with honey -licorice root its the best. I use this for many reasons it can be used for congestion, and cough, sore throat, but also all the other things licorice root can do.
