Glenn Clark Quote

      Glenn Clark was/is one of my mentors even though I never met him.  He founded Camps Farthest Out in 1930.  We attended CFO as a family for 20 years which totally wrecked us for anything less than the fullness of the Holy Spirit operating in our lives.  I have listened to as many Glenn Clark messages as I could get my hands on.
      The speakers we met through CFO were forerunners, I believe, of what God is doing/saying today in many churches, such as Bethel in Redding, CA and conferences sponsored by those connected to them.   (Matt Leach has a website here where you can listen to many of the talks from early CFOs--the link is also posted on the Resources Page of this blog.  I highly recommend you check it out and see how inspired the messages given were.)
      As I was cleaning out drawers in my office, I found this quote of Glenn's that I had copied into one of my journals:
                                                                                                                                                                       
    "When we treat every person as an end in himself (apply the Golden Rule) and not hold a single negative, condemnatory thought for anyone in the world, and when we keep our prayer secret and sacred, and have absolute faith in God's power and willingness to grant the right answer at the right time, the answer will never fail to come."    The Way, The Truth, & the Life,  Glenn Clark, p. 52

Potato Leek Soup

I can't recall ever cooking with leeks, but when I was at the Fresh Thyme Market last week I decided to buy some and look for a leek soup recipe.  Tonight I made the soup.  We thought it was terrific, so I am posting the recipe here and on the Recipes #1 page.  I found a basic recipe online but changed it a little.  This is the recipe I made with changes included.

 Potato Leek Soup 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 leeks, sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 quart chicken broth
 
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 6 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk

Directions

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter. Cook leeks in butter with salt and pepper until tender, stirring frequently, about 15 minutes.
  2. Stir cornstarch into broth and pour broth into pot. Add the potatoes and bring to a boil. 
  3. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for a few minutes till potatoes begin to soften and then add the cream/milk.  Continue cooking for a few more minutes.until potatoes are tender. Season with salt and pepper before serving.

"2018: A Time of War and Victories" by Johnny Enlow

      As any of you who have checked my blog over a length of time knows, I am very impressed by Johnny Enlow's prophetic words.  He is one who prophesied Donald Trump would be president long before it happened.
     This word is no exception!  It  excellent with some exciting predictions and words of instruction.  It is encouraging, informative, and well...prophetic.  Since it is rather long, I have hidden much of the word, but you can click on "Read more" at the bottom to continue reading.  I encourage you to read the entire word. I'm sure you will be as encouraged as I was/am.



2017 has been a year that has exceeded every projection of disruption. A year ago I wrote a word entitled "Trumpquake" that described the upheaval that Trump's presidency would usher in—ensuing tsunami waves of change. If anything, that word understated what actually has become reality.
2017 in Review
The first full year of Donald Trump as President shook seemingly everything that could be shaken. A most sensational war has been engaged with the dominant media all year, with no truce coming from either side. "Fake news" and "alternative facts" are now household concepts and realities. Also, an overall vicious, political atmosphere was in effect for the entire year.
We have also had very extreme weather patterns, as creation seemingly caught itself up in the turmoil of everything. Many severe weather stories became relegated as compared to the three big storms—Harvey, Irma and Maria—that each in its own way was a historical hurricane, which I have previously covered. Interestingly enough in Zechariah 9:14 it says (emphasis mine):
"Then the Lord will appear over them; His arrow will flash like LIGHTNING. The Sovereign Lord will sound the TRUMP and He will march in the storms of the south."
The Hebrew word for the word "lightning" is "baraq." It is no coincidence that this verse speaks of a time where the Lord intervenes with "baraq" (or Barack), and then that He would sound the "trump" (or Trump) and march in the storms and hurricanes of the south. God is neither Trump nor the hurricanes, but He is sounding the "Trump" and He has marched IN on the hurricanes of the south. Put together the first letter of each storm and you have HIM. In the seeming mayhem of it all, He is there.
In 2017 we also experienced an almost unprecedented total, solar eclipse that carried its own message. Then we had a constellation assignment so unique that again, the "doom and gloomers" came out of the woodwork with another false, prophetic narrative. All these events and phenomenons were significant and telling of a special day, but it was all about Kingdom of God advancement and notkingdom of darkness advancement.
Somehow, each of these "once-in-a-lifetime events" seemingly paled in comparison with the "Harvey Weinstein effect" that has seen literally hundreds of the "gate keepers" at the tops of all 7 mountains (media, economy, government, education, family, arts and entertainment and religion) forced from their stronghold positions. Suddenly and before our very eyes, tsunami waves with a new cultural appetite for justice are vacating the high places and making room for the new. A line has been drawn in the sand. God's daughters will be better protected as they rise and shine. The accompanying story line of the hit movie "Wonder Woman" is all interwoven into the new narrative of the day—a movie where not only were women positively highlighted, but the central star was an Israeli actress named Gal Gadot. No coincidence there either.

Skepticism on Vegetarianism

      I have contiued to watch Mark Virkler's video series (mentioned in the previous posts) even though he almost lost me on the second one.  He seems to have become a vegetarian for the most part.  I can agree that we need to eat a balanced diet which includes lots of fruits and particularly vegetables but I'm not ready to go "all in" when it comes to eating only those things.
     As I was discussing this with Country Guy yesterday I told him I had just read of Jesus feeding the 5000 and he didn't do it by multiplying fruit and vegetables!  So I am still not ready to become a vegetarian, but I am trying to add more fresh produce in my diet.  I know it is important.
      Nevertheless, Mark has some very good points and gives good information concerning health and healing.  I recommend listening to the remaining series.
       Here is the link.

Watch Today's Session

     I highly recommend watching today's session (the first of 10) of You Can Take Charge Of Your Life by Mark Virkler.  As I posted a couple of days ago, he is offering one free video/day for the next 10 days.
     Today gives you a very good indication of whether you agree with Mark's philosophy and want to learn how to follow it, so take a look, and then decide if this is for you.

Take Charge of Your Health Video Series by Mark Virkler

     I thought you might be thinking about changing the way you eat, as I am, after eating nonstop for the past week or more.  I really like Mark Virkler's materials so I am eager to be a part of watching the series he is offering starting January 1 on taking charge of your health.  Here is the info he sent in case you want to watch it, too.

Feast Days Are Over—NOW It's Time to Take Charge of Your Health!

Isn't it nice that God ordained feast days in the Bible (Ex. 23:14)? During some of these feast days, the Israelites were encouraged to eat anything their heart desired (Neh. 8:10; Num. 6:20; Deut. 14:26), after which they went back to their normal healthy lifestyle (Lev 3:17, 11:10-12; Gen. 1:29).

For many of us, Thanksgiving and Christmas are two big feast days, which I feel no guilt over. If God has commanded feast days, then they are important to my overall health. Science has confirmed a feast day keeps your metabolism from slowing down and they recommend one every week, and I take full advantage of their recommendation! We just need to be sure we return to living our healthy lifestyle the rest of the time.

Now a new year is beginning, and we need to go back to our regular, healthful routine. The Lord would say,
Behold I have prepared for you times and seasons. There is a season of feasting to be followed by a season of fasting. Intermittent change is necessary for vital life and existence. Have I not woven this pattern into all of life? You observe it in the seasons of the year, the cycles of the month and the winds of each day. Static means no growth, change means growth. Change is to be constantly upon you, for then you are growing and then you are alive. So celebrate change. Look for it, expect it and embrace it. For then, you are fully alive, then you are moving forward, saith the Lord of Hosts.
I ignored this whole area for the first 40 years of my life, until I felt totally miserable and had arthritis. Then at age 40 I took personal responsibility for my health, exploring the topic in-depth and adding to my distinction of being an ordained minister of the Gospel, that of becoming a certified naturopath. Today at age 65 I am healthier than I was at age 30 and I haven't been to visit an MD for 25 years, since I took charge of my own health.

Ready for some good news?
  • You can reverse aging with a healthy lifestyle.
  • Your body does not need to degenerate as it ages; it can grow stronger.
  • God's prescribed diet in Genesis and Daniel has been proven to be the healthiest.
  • Healthy food and drinks can taste delicious, if you know where to get them.
Starting January 1st, I am posting a full set of 12 videos (one per day) that will clearly show the way Scripture and science agree on how you can live in vibrant health. We are also going to explore miracles and 30 gifts of healings!

Blessings,
Dr. Mark Virkler

New Blogger App

     Well, as you can see the app worked but needs a little improvement in my application of it.  The photos posted larger than the width of the text.  Hopefully, I can figure out what to do about that.  I am at least pleased to be able to add photos from my iPad now.
     I guess all the problems advanced technology presents me with is good for my brain!

Christmas 2017



     Did you have a wonderful Christmas?  I pray you did.

     As I was cooking yesterday I continued to meditate on a thought that was triggered by the devotional for the day in Jesus Calling. What a sacrifice it was for Jesus to come to earth!  Of course I had often thought of His sacrifice on the cross but I had never thought much about the sacrifice to come as a helpless baby dependent on others to care for Him. The creator of the universe, King of kings and Lord of Lord’s unable to do anything for himself and trusting himself to human care!  Can you imagine the sacrifice?  That thought kept my mind occupied all day.

    I got a new iPad for Christmas mainly so I could take it when we travel to have a place to store photos. Because I like to post photos to my blog while traveling, but couldn’t figure out how to do it on my old iPad, that has been my goal this morning.  The only way I could find to do it was to download an app specifically for Blogger. This is my first attempt to use it.  I thought I might as well post a photo of our tree before I take it down.  Hopefully this app is the solution I have been looking for.

      This year I decided to forego our usual huge live tree and instead pulled out the artificial one I have used in the basement. I set it on a small table and since it already had white lights I decided to decorate it in silver ornaments with a silver tree skirt (tablecloth) and wrap all gifts in shiny silver paper.  I then followed through with the silver theme on the fireplace. I was pleased with the results.

    And I am eager to see if the app works!

The Woman Who Bore 69 Children

       I have been a little obsessed with the woman who gave birth to 69 children!  How could she handle that?  If she was a peasant, surely they had only a small house so how did they house them, feed them. clothe them and generally care for them?
     Country Guy suggested since it was the 1700's probably many didn't survive. I just had to know more about this, so I looked on the Guinness World Record site.  I was astounded at what I found!  Not only did they survive but her husband had a second wife who gave birth to 18 more children in 8 births--6 sets of twins and 2 sets of triplets!  The total is 87 offspring with only 2 dying in infancy!!

Here is the information posted on the website:



Who
MRS. VASSILYEVA

What
69 PEOPLE

Where
RUSSIA (SHUYA)
The greatest officially recorded number of children born to one mother is 69, to the wife of Feodor Vassilyev (b. 1707–c.1782), a peasant from Shuya, Russia. In 27 confinements she gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets.
***
Numerous contemporaneous sources exist, which suggest that this seemingly improbably and statistically unlikely story is true.
The case was reported to Moscow by the Monastery of Nikolsk on 27 Feb 1782, which had recorded every birth. It is noted that, by this time, only two of the children who were born in the period c. 1725–65 failed to survive their infancy.
The Gentleman's Magazine (1783, 53, 753) recounts: "In an original letter now before me, dated St Petersburg, Aug 13, 1782, O. S. Feodor Wassilief [sic], aged 75, a peasant, said to be now alive and in perfect health, in the Government of Moscow, has had–
By his first wife:
4 x 4 = 16
7 x 3 = 21
16 x 2 = 32
----------
27 births 69 children
By his second wife:
6 x 2 = 12
2 x 3 = 6
---------
8 births 18 children
In all, 35 births, 87 children, of which 84 are living and only three buried. . . The above relation, however astonishing, may be depended upon, as it came directly from an English merchant at St Petersburg to his relatives in England, who added that the peasant was to be introduced to the Empress."
In Saint Petersburg Panorama, Bashutski, 1834, the author notes that:
"In the day of 27 February 1782, the list from Nikolskiy monastery came to Moscow containing the information that a peasant of the Shuya district, Feodor Vassilyev, married twice, had 87 children. His first wife in 27 confinements gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets. His second wife in eight confinements gave birth to six pairs of twins and two sets of triplets. F. Vassilyev was 75 at that time with 82 of his children alive."
And the Lancet (1878) refers to a twin study carried out by the French Academy and:
"Apropos of the enquiry, the Committee of the Academy recall an account of a quite extraordinary fecundity that was published by M. Hermann in his "Travaux Statistiques de la Russie," for Fedor Vassilet [sic]. . . who, in 1782, was aged 75 years, had had, by two wives, 87 children."
Aside from this, not much is known about the first Mrs Vassilyev - even her first name (although some sources claim her name was Valentina).
It is thought she lived to the age of 76.
Although this historic record should be taken with a pinch of salt, it is certainly conceivable that Mrs Vassilyev could have had a genetic predisposition to hyper-ovulate (release multiple eggs in one cycle), which significantly increases the chance of having twins or multiple children.
It is also not impossible for a woman to have 27 pregnancies during her fertile years.

"A Vision of the Spirit of Offense" Ryan Johnson,

A very good word posted on The Elijah List today.



Offense! It's a word that we have either experienced or seen others walk through. It's a hot topic word as it seems more and more individuals are going through battles of being offended. Whether it is being offended over politics, religion, freedom, protest and choices, etc., the list is long with so many dealing with being offended on some level.
To understand more about how offense works against individuals who have a relationship with Jesus, I began to consider how the mindset of offense works. That's when I saw an octopus. Yep, I know it sounds strange, but it was the image that first came to me. I began to see how offense operates like the arms and the legs of an octopus. Offense has the sole purpose to attach itself to you (to entangle you), and I believe that the Lord is detailing how a spirit of offense will come against you in 8 different ways.
1. Mind
"Guard your heart, your mind, and keep your spirit devoted to The Father."
"For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are in the flesh cannot please God." (Romans 8:5-8)
When offense takes root, the first place it's coming after is your mind. If offense can attach itself to your thoughts, it owns your ability to process understanding. The moment offense attaches itself to your mind, the ability to have clarity and peace is diminished, as everything now becomes about feeding every thought that is only directed at the hurt through offense.
2. Sight/Vision
"Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he" (Proverbs 29:18 KJV). "If people can't see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; but when they attend to what He reveals, they are most blessed." (Proverbs 29:18 MSG)
The problem now becomes about what you are seeing verses what isn't actually there. Once offense attaches itself to your vision, you now become bombarded by everything that you see. You begin to see things as though they are something that they are not. Every post, every picture, every action is something that you see as a direct attack against you. What is a general or a normal statement now looks as a direct shot against you. Offense shifts your vision from fulfilling your purpose into a place of opposition—from everyone/everything. You're now unable to recognize what God is doing as you're devoted to see what is being done to you. (Photo via Flickr)
3. Heart
"There are six things which the Lord hates, yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that run rapidly to evil, a false witness who utters lies, and one who spreads strife among brothers." (Proverbs 6:16-19)
This is a very dangerous place to find yourself. The moment that offense attaches itself to your heart, many things you do becomes toxic and dangerous. It's out of the abundance of your heart that everything about your true intentions are revealed. It's the moment that your heart becomes so infected that your actions become destructive to those that are around you.
4. Relationships
"Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it separates close friends." (Proverbs 17:9
This has to be one of the saddest things to witness as offense attaches itself to your relationships. Offense will eventually put a wedge between you and your family or friends. Your relationships will change over time as you search out certain people to tell your side to who will be on your side or who is now your enemy. Offense will divide your most devoted friends to now become an enemy because they didn't see it your way.
5. Hearing
"This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God." (James 1:19-20
Offense will attack your ear gate! A spirit of offense will attach itself to your hearing in such a way that not only will your natural hearing be affected, but also the ability to hear spiritually will be tainted. Naturally, we will begin to hear what others are saying and process those things to be slanderous towards us. More dangerously is when that affects your ability to hear what the Lord is saying. Your spiritual ear will become more tuned to the lies, manipulation and deception of the enemy.
6. Body/Health
"Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."(Proverbs 16:24
Many don't like to talk about it, but the truth is, offense will begin to become a natural issue in your body. The negative thoughts, bitterness, unforgiveness, rage, frustration, unwarranted worries, strife, etc., eventually take a toll on your physical health.
7. Time
"Offense shifts your vision from fulfilling your purpose into a place of opposition—from everyone/everything."
"Honor your father and mother (which is the first commandment with a promise), so that it may be well with you, and that you may live long on the earth." (Ephesians 6:2-3
If honor produces life, what will offense take from life? Time! When offense attaches itself to you, your time becomes consumed with proving others wrong and you right. You become consumed with payback or restitution to what was done to you. Instead of being about the Father's business, your number one priority is you. Therefore your time is now robbed from your own offense.
8. Finances
"God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please Him. But if a sinner becomes wealthy, God takes the wealth away and gives it to those who please Him. This, too, is meaningless—like chasing the wind." (Ecclesiastes 2:26
I know that it's a touchy subject these days, but money is still a relevant issue that must be acknowledged in the Kingdom. Part of the lack you will experience when it comes to finances can be rooted to a spirit of offense.
When offense attaches itself to you, you soon welcome bitterness toward others in ministry, pastors, apostles, prophets, networks, churches, organizations, etc. When that offense digs deep, you will begin to withhold your finances from what you once supported. Offense will convince you to do so as a plan of strategy. Offense will convince you that they will come crawling back to you because they need your money. Truth is, offense attacks your finances and not the finances of those who are pleasing God.
Don't Let the Spirit of Offense Destroy You
A spirit of offense has but one purpose: to DESTROY YOU! Offense is straight from the enemy and if you allow an open door, it will not be long until you see how it affects one of the 8 (or more) ways mentioned above. Guard your heart, your mind and keep your spirit devoted to The Father. When offense comes knocking, and it will, please walk out what the Bible declares. Don't be the type of person who calls everyone without going to the one with whom the offense first began. (Photo via Wikipedia)
"If your brother sins, go and show him his fault in private; if he listens to you, you have won your brother. But if he does not listen to you, take one or two more with you, so that by the mouth of two or three witnesses every fact may be confirmed. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector." (Matthew 18:15-17) (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Remarkable!!

Today I was reading an article in The Times of Israel  which was recounting the birth of the 20th child of a 42 year old Israeli woman.  Amazing, isn't it?  She only had one set of twins, so she had given birth 19 times.

The article ended with this even more astonishing information:

"While it is not clear what the Israeli birth record is, the most prolific mother according to the Guinness World Record website was Mrs. Vassilyeva, an 18th-century Russian peasant woman who produced 69 children. During 27 labors the Vassilyeva gave birth to a remarkable 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets."

I can't even imagine this, can you?  Where would they sleep?  How could you feed that many?  Or even remember their names!

I have a remarkable friend who had 8 children of her own (one died in infancy) and then she adopted 11 more from other countries.  I was always in awe of how she took care of so many children!  Every time I prepare a dinner for a large gathering, I think of Lori and that she cooks for that many three times a day, every day!  No more quick trips to McDonald's if you don't feel like cooking.  They wouldn't all fit in one car and can you imagine the price tag?  Think of the laundry!!

Bob Jones: Question the Lord Will Ask

Bob Jones had a death to life experience in 1975 where he was caught up to heaven.  When he returned, he said the Lord will only ask one question of us when we stand before him in death:

             "Did you learn to love?"

It sounds as if this is a pretty important assignment, doesn't it?

Thank Trump Campaign

      Joseph Farah of World Net Daily has launched a "Thank Trump" Campaign.  I think it is a great idea--especially since there is so much determination to sabotage what he is doing. I have sent one of the cards they provide and added a note of encouragement.  Hopefully, you will want to, also.
      Here is an excerpt from his article (you can read it in it's entirety here) that asks us to help "Thank Trump:"

SHOW TRUMP HOW MANY SUPPORT HIM

Exclusive: Joseph Farah asks readers to thank the man 'fighting for America's heart and soul'

... in the meantime, I want to enlist you and all your friends and every supporter of President Trump’s agenda for America to let him know you are with him.
I believe this is so important, I launched the ThankTrump.us campaign as an easy way to allow your voice to be heard with a personalized message or blessing.
Specifically, I was thinking about that verse in 2 Kings when Elisha said: “Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.”
Do you believe that?
Then let President Trump and his White House team know we’ve got their backs – with our votes, with our energy, with our feet, with our voices and with our prayers."

A Travesty of Justice in the Case of Judge Roy Moore

      I wish I was a better communicator because I feel deeply about what happened to Roy Moore! Doesn't the Bible say, "Those without sin can cast the first stone?"  I guess that would exclude all of us, wouldn't it?  We are all sinners.  It seems to me those who have been shouting the loudest agaisnt Roy Moore have a lot in their lives they wouldn't like to see exposed.  But there is much more that causes me to be incensed!
     One: Aren't we supposed to be deemed innocent until proven guilty?  Roy Moore's reputation has been tarnished, if not altogether ruined, because of allegations that have yet been proven. Why did these surface only 30 days before the election when he has been in public office for 34 years.  One would think it had something to do with the election, wouldn't one?  Thirty days is not long enough to prove innocence so there would always be the lingering doubt that the allegations could be true. How cruel!!  I do not believe Roy Moore is a pedophile in any sense of the word, but that is what the news media is calling him.  I have seen headline today that read "Jones defeats Pedophile Roy Moore!"  When was his trial!!
    Two: Those things he has been accused of happened 34 years ago!  Even if they were true, is there no room for change?  Do we blackball a person for something he did a long time ago but has never attempted to do it since.  There is no hope for any of us if this is true!  What is the point of living if we cannot grow and learn from mistakes?  The whole point of recognizing sin is so that we can repent.  There is no sin that God does not forgive, but we must know that it is sin so we can ask Him.  If Roy Moore treated teens inappropriately, he obviously has repented and been forgiven because there is no trace of the behavior in his life in the past 34 years!
     Three: Mainstream Republicans did everything in their power to see him defeated. They voted against him, spoke openly and often against him, disparaging his reputation, planned meetings to figure out how to keep him from participating in the Senate if elected.  How embarrassing!  They would rather a Democrat win the seat than have someone who will stand for his convictions no matter what the consequences be in their midst.  This says much about their character, I think.  Whatever happened to loyalty?  How about acceptance of those who have different opinions?  I have been a fan of Judge Roy Moore for many years.  He has been persecuted for his beliefs throughout his career but has stuck to his convictions.  He refused to remove the Ten Commandments monument. He had the commandments posted in his courtroom.  He has called homosexuality a sin.  He actually believes the Bible!!  Amazing isn't, it to find someone in public office who is willing to say the Bible is true and is the moral compass we should base our laws upon.
     Four:  I am disappointed in President Trump (I am a strong supporter of him).  He didn't endorse Roy Moore in the beginning, only coming in at the end and then blaming Steve Bannon( who in my opionion is one of the few who acted rightly in the whole situation) for his loss. He is now saying he didn't endorse him in the beginning because he knew he couldn't win.  I believe we should endorse those who stand for righteousness whether we believe they can win or not, so I am doubly disappointed in him for this admission.
    It is my hope and prayer that those who were so quick to judge will have the same judgment turned upon them.  I pray Roy Moore's reputation will be restored and that good things will come to him and his family because of what they endured.  And I pray that President Trump will endorse only those who have the best interests of our country in mind.  I pray that those who lead by deception and lies will be exposed and removed from office and that our country will return to the laws of God--that integrity, honesty and loyalty will be the new norm.
    I hope you will pray with me.
