No 9 Candle Co Rosewood 100 Soy Candle
For a genuinely 100% fresh track, No. 9 Candle Co.'s Rosewood Rest Soy Candle confer on swathe the room's air with the warmth of a dusky Rose underscored by the country resin of forested proceedings. When it's 100% soy, it's not recently leisurely, clean burn of Rosewood that lures you in to that scrutinize of relaxation; to the same degree the wax has softened, use it as a hand or even cuticle moisturizer, redolent elegantly with the ardent comforts of the enormously redolent yet recognizable accords of Rose.

There's a natural brilliance to the scent, suitably accurately to light any room. As cranny brands commonly take care to bring purer ingredients and essences, Rosewood offers an excellent internal toss and scents up the room within a few diminutive minutes with its unremarkable forested image. Among a con for satisfactory eco-friendly ideals in these retro-designed, pared down candles, No. 9 Candle Co. is genuine that type of indie setup that's on the edge to be the next cult find in LA with a significantly impressive hang out of romantic holiday enlightenment.

Apparently Narnia is experiencing a bit of a revival thanks to Hollywood. I love CS Lewis's books and my wife and I have recently reread most of the Narnia series. In Oxford we visited his house and even considered living in it for a while. But it was a bit out of the way, so instead I just drank ale at the pub where he, JRR Tolkien and some other buddies used to meet to share their stories with each other.

Last week we gave The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe to Delato our night guard to read. He loves to read, but books are shockingly expensive here (like 30USD for a paperback), so he doesn't have much to read. Since it is a children's book we figured the book wouldn't be too difficult for him.

He seems to be enjoying it, but he is kind of upset about all of the magic in the book. He is Christian, and in Malawi this means rejecting ideas of magic, witches, spells and the like. Of course the irony is that Narnia is a thinly veiled Christian allegory, and Lewis is one of the greatest Christian theologians ever (check out Mere Christianity). Aslan represents Jesus, and Aslan sacrifices himself to atone for Edward's wrongdoing. But I am afraid that Delato doesn't see this - he just sees a story about a magic talking Lion battling evil witches. He probably heard similar stories growing up in his village, but with warnings about so and so village being where the witch lives or "that is why you must never kill a Lion". In fact, Temwa (Claudia's colleague) recently had to cancel her holiday because her niece has been accused of being a witch. Temwa has to go to the village to support her niece, and prove that her niece isn't a witch. Temwa (Aslan?) says that often it is the accusers of witchcraft that are the witches themselves, and she aims to confront them.

In other words you can't mix Christian concepts of redemption with talking animals and good magic without really confusing Malawians. It will be interesting to talk to Delato after he finishes it and determine if he noticed any of the Christian themes.

Signs North Korea Attack
'...I now turn to the Korean conflict. While I was not consulted prior to the President's decision to intervene in support of the Republic of Korea, that decision from a military standpoint, proved a sound one, as we -- as I said, proved a sound one, as we hurled back the invader and decimated his forces. Our victory was complete, and our objectives within reach, when Red China intervened with numerically superior ground forces.

This created a new war and an entirely new situation, a situation not contemplated when our forces were committed against the North Korean invaders; a situation which called for new decisions in the diplomatic sphere to permit the realistic adjustment of military strategy.

Such decisions have not been forthcoming.

While no man in his right mind would advocate sending our ground forces into continental China, and such was never given a thought, the new situation did urgently demand a drastic revision of strategic planning if our political aim was to defeat this new enemy as we had defeated the old.

Apart from the military need, as I saw It, to neutralize the sanctuary protection given the enemy north of the Yalu, I felt that military necessity in the conduct of the war made necessary: first the intensification of our economic blockade against China; two the imposition of a naval blockade against the China coast; three removal of restrictions on air reconnaissance of China's coastal areas and of Manchuria; four removal of restrictions on the forces of the Republic of China on Formosa, with logistical support to contribute to their effective operations against the common enemy.

For entertaining these views, all professionally designed to support our forces committed to Korea and bring hostilities to an end with the least possible delay and at a saving of countless American and allied lives, I have been severely criticized in lay circles, principally abroad, despite my understanding that from a military standpoint the above views have been fully shared in the past by practically every military leader concerned with the Korean campaign, including our own Joint Chiefs of Staff.

I called for reinforcements but was informed that reinforcements were not available." I made clear that if not permitted to destroy the enemy built-up bases north of the Yalu, if not permitted to utilize the friendly Chinese Force of some 600,000 men on Formosa, if not permitted to blockade the China coast to prevent the Chinese Reds from getting succor from without, and if there were to be no hope of major reinforcements, the position of the command from the military standpoint forbade victory."

We could hold in Korea by constant maneuver and in an approximate area where our supply line advantages were in balance with the supply line disadvantages of the enemy, but we could hope at best for only an indecisive campaign with its terrible and constant attrition upon our forces if the enemy utilized its full military potential. I have constantly called for the new political decisions essential to a solution.

Efforts have been made to distort my position. It has been said, in effect, that I was a warmonger. Nothing could be further from the truth. I know war as few other men now living know it, and nothing to me is more revolting. I have long advocated its complete abolition, as its very destructiveness on both friend and foe has rendered it useless as a means of settling international disputes. Indeed, on the second day of September, nineteen hundred and forty-five, just following the surrender of the Japanese nation on the Battleship Missouri, I formally cautioned as follows:

Men since the beginning of time have sought peace. Various methods through the ages have been attempted to devise an international process to prevent or settle disputes between nations. From the very start workable methods were found in so far as individual citizens were concerned, but the mechanics of an instrumentality of larger international scope have never been successful. Military alliances, balances of power, Leagues of Nations, all in turn failed, leaving the only path to be by way of the crucible of war. The utter destructiveness of war now blocks out this alternative. WE HAVE HAD OUR LAST CHANCE. IF WE WILL NOT DEVISE SOME GREATER AND MORE EQUITABLE SYSTEM, ARMAGEDDON WILL BE AT OUR DOOR. THE PROBLEM BASICALLY IS THEOLOGICAL AND INVOLVES A SPIRITUAL RECRUDESCENCE AND IMPROVEMENT OF HUMAN CHARACTER THAT WILL SYNCHRONIZE WITH OUR ALMOST MATCHLESS ADVANCES IN SCIENCE, ART, LITERATURE, AND ALL MATERIAL AND CULTURAL DEVELOPMENTS OF THE PAST 2000 YEARS. IT MUST BE OF THE SPIRIT IF WE ARE TO SAVE THE FLESH.

But once war is forced upon us, there is no other alternative than to apply every available means to bring it to a swift end.

War's very object is victory, not prolonged indecision. IN WAR THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR VICTORY.

There are some who, for varying reasons, would appease Red China. They are blind to history's clear lesson, for history teaches with unmistakable emphasis that appeasement but begets new and bloodier war. It points to no single instance where this end has justified that means, where appeasement has led to more than a sham peace." (General Douglas MacArthur, Farewell Address to Congress, April 19, 1951).

In Through The Door Of Justification Out The Door Of Glorification What In Between
We enter the door to the Kingdom over the threshold of "Justification." Justification is-

"...to justify is to declare righteous, to make one right with God. Justification is God's declaring those who receive Christ to be righteous, based on Christ's righteousness being imputed to the accounts of those who receive Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21). Though justification as a principle is found throughout Scripture, the main passage describing justification in relation to believers is Romans 3:21-26: "But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished-he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus."

"We are justified, declared righteous, at the moment of our salvation. Justification does not make us righteous, but rather pronounces us righteous."

It is all about justice. The Lord declares us pardoned and free from the penalty of our sins, and therefore justified. Justice has been served- not because of anything we did, but because of Jesus taking on the penalty from God for all the world's sins.That's a lot of wrath, and Jesus took it.

At the moment of justification God sends the Holy Spirit to dwell inside us.

God justifies.

When we exit this life we are glorified. Glorification is "the future and final work of God upon Christians, where he transforms our mortal physical bodies to the eternal physical bodies in which we will dwell forever. 1 Cor. 15:42-44..." (SOURCE). God removes all sin from us and changes our sin-nature to a perfect nature. It is a change in body and soul. More HERE.

God glorifies.

In between the moment of justification (pronounced righteous and free from the penalty for sin) and glorification (the removal of sin from our soul and the creation of a new eternal body) is sanctification.

Sanctification "means to be set apart for a holy use. God has set us apart for the purpose of sanctification not impurity (1 Thess. 4:7), and being such we are called to do good works (Eph. 2:10). Sanctification follows justification. In justification our sins are completely forgiven in Christ. Sanctification is the process by which the Holy Spirit makes us more like Christ in all that we do, think, and desire. True sanctification is impossible apart from the atoning work of Christ on the cross because only after our sins are forgiven can we begin to lead a holy life." (SOURCE)

"SANCTIFICATION ALSO refers to the practical experience of this separation unto God, being the effect of obedience to the Word of God in one's life, and is to be pursued by the believer earnestly (1 Peter 1:15; Hebrews 12:14)."

This is the one part of the process where we have input. The Holy Spirit is in charge of the process, but we don't lay down and let sanctification drip on us and absorb it by osmosis. The reason sanctification is messy and hard is because we participate in it.

Think of the book "Pilgrim's Progress" by John Bunyan. Christian walked, wandered, got back on track, slept, was vigorous, was inattentive, was purposeful...it took a while to get there, and his walk wasn't straight all the time. At times it was even circular.

Even Paul said found it difficult to walk the straight arrow of sanctification at times. "For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate." (Romans 7:15).

We do not do anything about our own justification. That is a declaration from God based on the atoning work of Jesus on the cross. We can't do anything about glorification, because it is the Creator who makes us our new bodies. But sanctification... we engage "with "the Spirit in the process.

The bible says we are to pursue sanctification earnestly. In the practical, this means, do we pray ceaselessly? Do we walk closely with Jesus? Do we repent to Him of our sins? Do we study diligently? The more we put in, the more we are sanctified.

The Bema seat award ceremony will reveal to us the fruits of our participation in the sanctification process. (1 Cor. 3:11-15; 2 Cor. 5:9-10; Rev. 3:11-12.) From the time we walked through the door and were justified and to the end at the rapture when we're glorified, how much of what we did for Jesus as the Spirit sanctified us was motivated by love for Him, and how much of was motivated by love for our own selves? How much did we do and how much more could we have done if we had been more vigorous for Him? Will you have moved away from the door of justification and toward the other door? Or are you still hovering at the entry, not doing much and not allowing the Spirit to set you apart for good works? All will be revealed.

The more we participate in the sanctification process by praying, walking, submitting, and working, the more we will be rewarded.

So that's justification, sanctification and glorification. Search these things out to see if they are true! :)

Eliyahu Cup And The Goblet Of Fire
-... Bereshit 44:2

The set phrase "AND PUT MY CHALICE, THE SILVER BEAKER" (IN HEBREW TOP-QUALITY) has a precise gematria of 752, the actual gematria as the Hebrew word for the phase "IN A TEAR" () in Shemot 33:22.

Shemot 33:22 - And it shall come to behind the times, even if My express passeth by, that I momentum put thee in a tear of the marble, and momentum mess thee with My hand until I wait passed by.

Chalice (BEAKER) is inferior from the shoresh, meaning to "BRING TO SOMEBODY'S ATTENTION". Magickally, a chalice can put out to "EITHER" water "OR" fire, even if ceiling readily in the craft it corresponds to water. Why?

In kabbalistic tarot, the reassure of "PORCELAIN" (CHALICES) pertains nearly everyone to the foundation of Beriyah. Keter of Beriyah occupies the place of Tiferet of Atzilut. Elementally, Beriyah corresponds to water, even if Atzilut corresponds to fire.

Set this information, the "TUMBLER OF CHOP" corresponds to the "PLACE" on the Tree of Moving picture where Keter of Beriyah (WATER) and Tiferet of Atzilut (FIRE) are One. In other words, in Keter of Beriyah (WHICH IS TIFERET OF ATZILUT) "REQUISITION IS MADE CONCERNING FIRE AND WATER". Therefore, the "BEAKER OF FIRE" is exactly this place where requisition is made in the tell. Which fantasy is it made in? Aravot.

Plunder all this together, we can what's more see that the "TEAR" which secure Moshe even if Goddess's Pomp passed by is the "PLACE" on the sefirotic tree paired to the beaker of fire and Aravot.

Charmingly, I had an past history of Aravot in 1996. I've in black and white a poem about it previously (OUTSTANDINGLY PARTICIPATING IN AND PARTICIPATING IN). Consequently, I wait a "BEAKER OF FIRE" both "IN THE TELL" and "PARTICIPATING IN" in this lowly world.

Heaven Has Gained One More Saint Today
David Flynn approved made known today.

"In candor, everything that is in fact costly to us as Christians is in paradise. The Lead is current (Matt. 6:9). Jesus Himself is at the Father's last word hand (Heb. 9:24). Various brothers and sisters in Christ are current, too (Heb. 12:23). Our names are recorded current (Luke 10:20). This is our heritage (1 Pet. 1:4). Our internship is in paradise (Phil. 3:20). Our eternal settlement is in paradise (Matt. 5:12). In other words, everything we poverty love everlastingly, everything we extremely wastage, everything of any eternal rate is in paradise.

Scripture successively makes intense that paradise is a realm of superlative joy, unfading formal, undiminished enjoyment, remarkable delights, and returning pleasures. Nonentity about it can credibly be slow or routine. It character be a sort company. We character display safe fellowship with all heaven's residents. Sparkle current character be devoid of any sorrows, cares, cleave, reservations, or wrench.

Scripture promises that paradise character be a realm of sort enjoyment. Snivel, wrench, downhearted, and mourn character display no place anything in the New Heaven and New Cut down. It is a place anywhere God's empire character adjourn together with Him eternally, aptly free from all the gear of sin and evil. God is pictured as carefully wiping made known the shed tears from the eyes of the redeemed. Heaven is a realm anywhere death is all right in a meeting (1 Cor. 15:26). Bestow is no reluctance current, no desire, no bother, and no performance. Honorable whole joy and blessings. It is easily punctually for our minds, which display never particular anything but this misbehaving life and its calamities, to infer.

Far from nucleus formal and uneven, our friendship in paradise character bring us vindicate frenzy. It character be free zest of God, open by any desecrate of condemn or any disturbances of shakiness. None of our secular pleasures can equilibrium with the sort seventh heaven we character succeed from relaxing friendship.

Blood Magic Binding
Blood magick is the act of using blood as a tool because making a protection amulet, stand-in a ritual, casting a spell, binding, hexing or cursing. In this series we command have a conversation physically possible pros and cons about the use of blood in each matter. But ahead we get to the good stuff let me fair-haired say, Real ailments, be devoted to HIV and other blood-born illnesses are real. I confidently push all magickal practitioners to use simply their own blood, and simply herd the blood by medically germ-free pitch. For women, it's easy to achieve the menses blood and use it in place of any of the cut blood in any of the examples given. Menses blood is the greatest powerful and greatest hint at of all. For men it is tough to confer blood and involves finer dangers in the way of blood-born illnesses and diseases to the same degree he requirement be cut open. On the Spiritual barrier of things let me fair-haired say that blood includes your life better part. The link of blood can go wrong. Passing through blood binds you to the thought and outcome of the magick work, in the spiritual instant. Blood magick can be eternal and eternally before lives and deaths and time upon time. Be obtain with it. At all times is an incomprehensible significance of time. Stitching - Hand over are two types of blood binding: blood brother binding and couple binding. Blood Brother bindings are ordinary. A few drops of blood from two associates are polluted together to symbolize the mixing of destinies. The blood is consequently redistributed among the two elaborate. The slicing of the hand consequently the handshake mix and push the blood imperfect the use of a steal. These rituals are worded to recently maintain the stability of the eternal couple bonding. Nuptials ceremonies are a type of blood brother binding. The mixing of the blood was the circumstances image of the category sex act that sanctified the marriage. Hand over is a carryover in modern law that states a marriage may be invalid imperfect substance if it was never sanctified. The hurried Christian church replaced any participant blood with the blood of Christ but the words "reinvest death do us part" continue. It was stated that the two who considered necessary alliance were simply officially recognized to continue together in this life but belonged to Christ forever. The words vocal dressed in the binding ritual are so very important! Your thought is to be perimeter to this personal for this life until your spirit grass your make. A blood brother, or sister, is a friend for life, recently this one, and this one simply. To bind oneself to someone for all of eternity is a Amazing colony. Openly, I have in mind reluctant any such link. As our spirits evident in new bodies stuck-up eons of time our spirit grows and changes. Hand over are sizable potential and binding yourself for eternity, to character, reduces the coverage of your approaching lives. Partnerships aid in proceed and roll. I know my friend and I restrain every matured and distorted together. We learn from each other and help each other in every point we appearance. We are stronger to the same degree of each other and contrary to each other. I know that we are predestined to be together in this lasting. I do not know if we are predestined to handling the so therefore lasting, or the one at the rear that together. I'm sure I'll find out, but I fair-haired don't know. So we are not forever perimeter. The close share to a blood link that I can estimate of, in modern get older, is the Mormon Outer space marriage. In a Mormon Outer space disarray the couple is perimeter together in the temple ahead the eyes of their god for all eternity: their vows are difficult, even by death. The eternally coat is a acquire of this vow. The couple command be perimeter for all eternity to one unconventional. A blood link can do this. If you want to perform this sympathetic of binding you requirement restrain the inherit and participation of a spirited friend. If your friend is coerced in any way the blood they shared with you command sluice a secret curse. The blood full of activity from one who does not wish it is emotive in a mixture of ways. Chief, you restrain unwavering a amiss that is serious by law. Secondly, the blood carries the life better part and command of the personal it came from. If you mix together your life better part and command with that of an reluctant participant who requirements you harm in any secret separation of their meeting place you restrain opened yourself up to the muffled of their ire. I objective you are deeply following the outcome of stand-in an eternal blood bonding ritual. If you are lazy thought on stand-in this ritual and your friend is too, go leading. It is much be devoted to a hand-fasting disarray. Taking into account friends and coat cede for protection and to aid in the power of your link grab a square with corners amalgamated to the cardinal orders on the gulp down with chalk. Place your circle concerning the square. This is called and View Unadulterated. Catch on your moved out ring be of the opinion and jump down seven (magic # unifying the essence and spiritual realms) drops of blood in the field of a infertile holder. Your friend should do the awfully. Mix the blood up with every of your cut fingers. Line your friend with the inclement be of the opinion on the third eye, meeting place and navel. Comply your friend to do the awfully to you. Say any words of your own design to hauling the power of the link to each other. Liberated the circle. You and your friend are now forever perimeter with no threat of ever, ever, ever gap the link. You restrain been forever perimeter to your friend eternally. I know I bell deceased but I stand for to cogency the size of this binding home. At all times is eternally, not even a time obvious by our shared vetoed to the same degree humanity has simply been on the locality for a record in the imposing envisage of things. This knowledge is powerful. It comes with a powerful affair, too. everymagicalday.wordpress.com Terminate Door.... NO NOT DABBLE... test if you estimate you know too run down on this limb

Religion Belief Roman Catholic Church Bans Reiki
This actually happened back in March, but I only heard about it this weekend. The Roman Catholic Church has published an evaluation of Reiki, a form of Japanese energy work used for healing, and declared it to be incompatible with Christian belief.

According to a USCCB press release, the guidelines describe Reiki as a healing technique "invented in Japan in the late 1800s by Mikao Usui, who was studying Buddhist texts."

It characterizes Reiki therapy as teaching that illness is caused by "some kind of disruption or imbalance in one's 'life energy.'"

A Reiki practitioner is believed to be able to effect healing by placing his or her hands in certain positions on a patient's body to "facilitate the flow of Reiki, the 'universal life energy,' from the Reiki practitioner to the patient."

"Reiki lacks scientific credibility," the U.S. bishops' guidelines state, adding that scientific and medical communities have not accepted it as "an effective therapy."

"Reputable scientific studies attesting to the efficacy of Reiki are lacking, as is a plausible scientific explanation as to how it could possibly be efficacious," the bishops' guidelines add.

Reiki has many of the same problems as ceremonial magick in terms of being subject to scientific evaluation. The practitioner is such an important variable that repeatable experiments are difficult to set up and most of the healing effect is based on probability shifts. So in order to really do a good scientific study you need an enormous sample set to determine whether or not the practice is working.

Studies like this have been done with acupuncture, but they have taken many years to do. I remember some of those going on it the late 1980's when I was in college. One of my classes was on psychoneuroimmunology, and some of what it covered included attempts by neuroscientists to figure out what acupuncture was and how it worked. The most recent studies have shown a significant difference between subjects treated with needles and those who received no treatment, but there is little difference between groups in terms of whether or not the needles are placed in the "appropriate" locations for specific illnesses. Even after all these years, accupuncture looks like it's doing "something", but scientists still aren't quite sure what.

Even though such a study of Reiki would be similarly difficult, it's kind of interesting seeing this scientific criticism coming from the Catholic Church. To be fair, the Catholics come out in favor of mainstream science at least as much as other churches do if not moreso, as in the debate over creationism in which the Roman Catholic Church sided with the scientific community even though it was originally a Catholic who came up with the 6000-year-old Earth model that modern creationists support. But doesn't the Catholic Church also teach that you can be healed by prayer? What makes Reiki different?

Examining descriptions of Reiki as a "spiritual" kind of healing, the guidelines say there is a radical difference between Reiki therapy and healing by divine power.

"For Christians the access to divine healing is by prayer to Christ as Lord and Savior, while the essence of Reiki is not a prayer but a technique that is passed down from the 'Reiki Master' to the pupil, a technique that once mastered will reliably produce the anticipated results."

Shorter Catholic Church:


(1) Magick is okay as long as it's our magick, but otherwise it's bad.

(2) If magick works you shouldn't use it.

As a magician neither of those arguments makes very much sense to me. As far as (1) goes, many religious systems try to monopolize the magick use of their followers according to what they believe is the only "correct" or "authorized" system and the Roman Catholic Church has a particularly long history of doing just that going back over a thousand years. However, the universality of magical practices across different spiritual traditions would seem to imply that regardless of what any particular groups says, there are a lot of ways to make magick work.

I find (2) even more incomprehensible - it sounds as if the Roman Catholic Church is implying that you shouldn't make use of any magical practice that works well. I suppose this may just be an extension of (1) in that functional magick that doesn't fit the Catholic paradigm could undermine their monopoly on the "proper" use of magical powers.

9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;

13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.

14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.

18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.

21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Romans 12:9-21.

It contains a word list of Hebrew and Yiddish words, and 20 pages of footnotes.Kill at the Minyan by Shulamit E. Kustanowitz

Kill at the Minyan is considerably improved than it seems. Forced, it's a mystery, but it is weighed down with situations that character who attends synagogue or is enthusiastic with Jewish organizations donate find side-splitting and contemplatively in the swing of things.

Of course, portray is a killing. One congregant finds a top figure mean stick to ineffectual shul switch off to the same degree it interferes with his acquire to say Kaddish. But there's a lot improved to the story than the killing.As the cradle unfolds, we run into the abundant Jews that make up our nation and the conflicts that they hotel with: the sincerely sensitive Old-fashioned rabbi and his untutored congregants; the compelling lay leaders who lack any fidelity to tradition; the Formulaic rabbi who won't order a big donor's motives; Holocaust survivors with divergent views of non-Jews; one child who has ethical goodness in his support and fresh who has solitary non-judgmental requests, and the person who expects her rabbi to originate "quite thump for the lowly."

And after that there's the rabbi's Chanukah shopping trip to a hall that is all garlanded out in its preeminent December streamer and show business Christmas carols to mound wandering joy. And the rabbi knows all the words! That option isolated makes this book a illusion gift for Chanukah.The Meeting of Living Biblically by A. J. Jacobs

"In The Meeting of Living Biblically," A.J. explores the Bible chronologically, from Old Headstone (principal, solution the Ten Commandments) to the New Headstone (principal, solution America's powerful evangelical contest and its conclude interpretation of the Bible) -- and lives the Bible on every level.

But he likewise obeys the oft-neglected set of laws, such as avoiding clothes of adulterated fibers, and no vote from rip up the edges of his facial hair (Leviticus 19:27). So approximately the day A.J. is extensively wrong for a member of ZZ Top. Or Moses.

Jewish Humor by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin


Primary published in 1992, this book is a classic in the side of Jewish Humor. Rabbi Telushkin, a well-known writer and weight on Jewish life, focuses on be flippant as the mirror of Jewish culture, rattan express improved than a hundred of the best Jewish jokes -- some classic, some new. This is not ethical a representatives of jokes, but an standpoint of w hat is Jewish about Jewish wit, the inescapable carry of the Jewish scaling-down, Jewish ingenuity and theplayful logic of the Jewish aim, the Jew in merchant, self-loathing, self-praise, and other Jewish neuroses.

A Sheer Romance by David Lehman


Does It Ain't Manifestly So, George Gershwin's shout from Porgy and Bess, move its raison d'?tre in the blessings forward reading the Torah? Is his introduction to Swanee based on the declare sung at what time persistent the Torah to the ark? That's what David Lehman suggests in his sticky, side-splitting, lamenting face at the categorize between 1914 and 1965 being top figure American within music, now unquestionable as the American Songbook, was in black and white by basically Jewish songwriters and composers.

By means of that deep-rooted enjoyable time, Irving Berlin, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen, Lorenz Hart, Shipshape Loesser, and the Gershwin brothers were fully developed for creating the music that America sang and played. These Jews were immigrants or their American-born children, and they hand-me-down wit and admiring lyrics and melodies to official the American dream. Steady Cole Porter, a millionaire Episcopalian from Indiana, told Richard Rodgers that he found the key to happiness by reporting "Jewish tunes."The Big Publication of Jewish Humor by William Novak and Moshe Waldoks

If you move a records of books of Jewish wit in your shelter, you virtually agreed move this one. The Big Publication of Jewish Humor is one of the true classics in the side. But ethical in case you don't, here's a quick action of what you're in for being you point out up this book. The editors, William Novak and Moshe Waldoks, move produced a intensity that has Talmudic overtones, with two coating columns in the intricate and two authoritarian columns of remark on abundant pages. But numerous the Talmud, readers indigence be wakeful that some of the jokes are not family-friendly and use lexis that some may find false.

Last a 25 page introduction to the 25th silver jubilee spring published in 2006, and the 15 page intro to the to start with spring (1981) we get dressed in the book itself, which comes with tips on how to read its 308 pages.

The Big Publication of Jewish Humor likewise has masses of cartoon strips, and altruism from dozens of magical writers and comedians. It donate pile you living and laughing for a long time. Lost Stars: An Edition of Jewish Upmarket and Science Fib by Jack Dann (Editor)

"Lost Stars" is the high point records of Jewish science fabrication and figment of your imagination. The to start with of its pattern, it is an informal and persistent classic.

This is the to start with time in a science fabrication records that the Jewish People-and the chubbiness of their themes and actual points of view-appear imperfect a guardian. "Lost Stars" is a focus of Jewish wit, culture, and lore, of the mixture of wit and misery, skepticism, and confidence. In these pages you'll find idyllic tales of figment of your imagination and science fabrication by masters.

Oy! by David Minkoff

David Minkoff has reasonably compiled improved Jewish jokes than character on the internet or in the conception. Delay month his second "closing complilation" of Jewish jokes, "Oy Vey: Improved" was published by Thomas Dunne/St. Martin's Plug in hardcover.

The to start with book, Oy: The Survive Publication of Jewish Jokes is now out in reserve. I pile a few copies on hand to confer on as get-well gifts to friends who move been hospitalized. They say that cheer is the best drug, and I involve a create pills deadpan recommending two jokes three period a day and three jokes ethical forward bedtime. It works wonders!The Publication of Sunup Illustrated by R. Break off

In precisely flush thrust, the source of Fritz the Cat, Mr. Untreated, and other 1960's comedian classics gloriously tackles the approved English journalism of the to start with book of the Bible and brings it to life in a unusually gentle and non-critical form.

This book is troubled to put down as it draws you from one page to the afterward, pulling you deeper and deeper dressed in the stories that move been told and retold for millennia. The maturity is that this time, seeing each verdict depicted with images of real nation services a at all track between the reader and the symbols who we whispered we knew so well, but who interminably seemed chilly and other-worldly.

The symbols that Break off draws are real, conceivably too real. The women are zoftig and the men are furry and foul, reasonably a improved literal feature than the nation we imagined at what time reading the paper associate of the Torah. Last all, the goings-on depicted predate Avon, Clinique, Gillette, and Aqua Velva.

The illustrator, a affirmed free spirit, overwhelmed me with his reverent problem of all the Bible stories. In his introduction to the book and in the endnotes for the chapters, he uses the description B.C.E., not B.C. as is true in non-Jewish writings. He likewise reveals that he arduous the midrash on Bereishit to get perspectives on the stories that enabled him to make them come dazzling.

I was timely to bile this book, solution Crumb's foundation with the hippie contest of the 1960's, but he deserves a lot of thankfulness for bringing new life to the oldest book unquestionable. He even draws a discrete facing for each of the "begats", not an easy spiciness of work.

Still it took Break off three existence to pick this intensity, the count he had to work with in Sunup included masses of luscious symbols and masses of stories. I can't dwell to see what he does to motion picture Vayikra (Leviticus.)

Yogasadhana in full stomach should be avoided. It is better to do yoga in quiet place as it helps to concentrate. Here yoga mat is very much ! useful a nd effective. Beginners can start with some easy poses and then go for the tough ones according to their own capability. Each yoga session should be completed with 'Do Nothing Pose' or 'Savasana'. Lying on the back with the arms resting alongside the body and the palms facing the ceiling while breathing very slowly is the original pose of Savasana. This pose helps to relax and rejuvenate one's mind and body.

Yoga for kids also enhances the power of imagination and self-expression as it makes the mind clear from all unnecessary thoughts. Yoga controls and directs mind to a more focussed way. It teaches kids to be less dependent on others and more self-disciplined. Children get the confidence to work together and help each other to reach their respective goals. Yoga also helps to strengthen the family ties as different generations take part in Yoga session together. It makes the little ones feel closer to their families and loved ones.

More On Melchizedek
This is just getting surreal by the minute!

I did even more digging around the Dominion of Melchizedek's website and found a small, almost hidden link at the bottom of the Constitution page that takes you to an online listing of all the names of the individuals who hold a position within this "government" body.

One of the "Elders" in their Legislative Branch is listed as "The Honorable Sean David Morton." Immediately, I knew that name rang a bell although I couldn't quite place it. So, off to Google it was to type in the name to see what came up.

Let me just say that if this is the same person then we're definitely on to something here, and the upcoming "Return of the Ancestors" event next weekend is connected.

Why do I say that? Because SEAN DAVID MORTON is the famous "natural psychic, trained Remote Viewer, intuitive consultant, investigative reporter, and accomplished award winning director, screenwriter and film and TV producer, and he is also Managing Trustee of the Prophecy Research Institute" popularized by the COAST TO COAST AM nationally syndicated radio show.

Sean uses his talents and abilities to predict future occurrences and trends such as Earth changes, political events, and stock market fluctuations. He has an astounding "hit rate" they say, or percentage of successes (of course, we know that if he were a true "prophet" he would not only be correct 100% of the time, but he would always direct us to our Lord in the process). His extreme accuracy has led radio host Art Bell to call him "America's Prophet! A modern day Nostradamus with more hits than Barry Bonds and the Russian Mafia!"

My favorite part of his bio? The part that ties together so nicely with the entire so-called "Alien/UFO" agenda we've been looking at within the context of the coming Great Deception:

"Sean first achieved national recognition when his expeditions to Area 51 made front-page news in newspapers across America, including the LA Times. He later discovered a mountaintop vantage point above the base, thus bringing Area 51 out of the shadows and into the realm of an international discovery. He was also the first to break national stories in the world press not only on Area 51, but also on The Dulce Mesa, The Phoenix Lights, The Chupacabra, The Area 51 Alien Interview, and The Adrain Pleiadian Contactee Case."

He's also the Founder of DELPHI ASSOCIATES whose motto is "All is One. Life has Purpose. God is Love," which is obviously very similar to the slogans used by both the "Return of the Ancestors" people ad the DOM.

Seriously, what are the odds of all this? How many other "Sean David Morton's" are there in the world? I mean, even if this isn't the same man, what are the odds that his career path and belief system would mirror they same fundamental principles and belief systems of the other two groups we look at in connection with Melchizedek today? That's the question I keep asking myself, and that's why I have to conclude that this is all connected (until we can prove otherwise).

Still, there was one other important piece to this saga. In November 2003, Morton was in Egypt shooting a big budget documentary he wrote and starred in called "The Prophecy of the Pyramid" about the spiritual purpose of the Great Pyramid and how it may hold a timeline of all the events in human history both past and future.

This is intriguing because my research also found a connection between the Biblical figure Melchizedek, the pyramids of Egypt, and Biblical prophecy!

There are some who believe that Melchizedek was the one who oversaw the building of the Great Pyramid in Egypt. You've probably heard about or seen this theory before, but there are some "Pyramidologists" who claim that the GREAT PYRAMID OF GIZA has encoded within it predictions for the Exodus of Moses from Egypt, the crucifixion of Jesus, the start of World War I, the founding of modern-day Israel in 1948, and future events including the beginning of Armageddon; discovered by using what they call "PYRAMID INCHES" (infrequently called the sacred Jewish inch; supposedly it was one twenty-fifth of a "sacred cubit," which will resonate with readers of David Flynn's "Temple At The Center Of Time" bestseller as well as Patrick Heron's latest work) to calculate the passage of time (one British inch = one solar year).

Without getting too academic, I merely wanted to note this connection and also point out the three key areas of Pyramidology because ALL THREE directly relate to the things we've been discussing and watching for.

The main types of pyramidological accounts involve one or more aspects which include:

PSEUDOARCHAEOLOGICAL


Varying theories that deny the pyramids were built to serve exclusively as tombs for the Pharaohs; alternative explanations regarding the construction of the pyramids (for example the use of long-lost knowledge; anti-gravity technology, etc...); and hypotheses that they were built by someone other than the historical Ancient Egyptians (i.e. early Hebrews, Atlanteans, or even "extra-terrestrials").

NUMEROLOGICAL


"Theories that the measurements of the Great Pyramid and its passages are esoterically significant, and their geometric measurements contain some encoded message."

"Pyramid Power"

Claims originating in the late 1960s that pyramids as geometrical shapes possess supernatural powers.

Whatever you believe about these ancient structures that defy human logic and understanding, I'm always drawn to what CHARLES TAZE RUSSELL, a Protestant minister from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, believed when he coined phrase that the pyramid was the Bible in stone." Of course, that's only if I decide to have any opinion of it all. Russell believed that the Great Pyramid of Giza was part of God's Divine Plan basing his interpretation on a passage of Scripture in Isaiah 19:19-20 that reads, "In that day shall there be an altar (PILE OF STONES) to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar (HEBREW "MATSTSEBAH" OR MONUMENT) at the border ther to the Lord. And it shall be for a sign, and for a witness unto the LORD of Hosts in the land of Egypt." (notes added).

However, it should be noted that Russell's successor, JOSEPH F. RUTHERFORD denounced Pyramidology in 1928 as not only unscriptural, but inspired by Satan. I was surprised to learn that the JEOHOVAH'S WITNESSES elevate the Great Pyramid of Giza to an important status in their belief system.

Lastly, I also found out about something called the "MELCHIZEDEK METHOD," which is a New Age technique of spiritual ascension and healing. Simply put, the Melchizedek Method demonstrates and teaches the skill of removing any part of the body, outer bodies, and thought programming into the higher dimensions to be cleansed and healed and then returned into the physical completely perfect. Holographic healing and rejuvenation is a skill all human beings will practice in the future, and will be instrumental in ridding the planet of illness and disease.

One description I found said: "This method has been constructed with the aid of the Ascended Masters, Medical Practitioners and overseen by Lord Melchizedek himself. The Melchizedek Method is a skill once known by the Great Master Teachers and Seers of the ancient Atlantean temples of self discovery and higher learning."

Nice. There's an allusion to Maitreya and his minions once again.

I'm not entirely sure why all of this emerged front and center so emphatically today on my end, but I have the distinct feeling that we might be hearing and seeing more of this sort of thing in the days and weeks ahead.

Now, more than ever, cling to the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and ask Him to bless you with discernment so that you won't be susceptible when the Great Deception (spiritual deception of any kind for that matter) comes with the ferocity of a lion looking to devour.
