THE DEADLY CONSEQUENCES, (Of Improperly Removed Mercury Amalgam Fillings)


My Tragic Story of a Dental Filling Gone Rogue October 2018

It is a beautiful fall day and I’m sitting in my room waiting for this itchy Bentonite clay to dry, so I can wash it off and move forward with my day. You may ask, why do I have clay on my face? Bentonite clay is known to remove toxins, so since I’m desperate to get this mercury out of my face, my clay application has been a part of my detoxing routine. After almost of decade of enduring tormenting, uncontrollable spasms of my throat muscles, (Platysma) and jaws. I have been on a relenting quest to solve this neurological mystery. Only just a few months ago, I found a medical journal link about an Asian woman who had the same issue as I. Imagine it taking that long to assure myself I wasn’t crazy and there had to be someone else, somewhere on this planet with a condition as mine! This lady’s solution was surgery.

So each week, I spent innumerable hours researching on the internet, anatomy photos of the face, neck and area, as well as researching everything I could find about TMJ, Dystonia and other movement disorders.

I’ve decided to write a comprehensive article on my condition which was caused by Mercury poisoning from one improperly removed amalgam filling. My misery has been so extensive and my life so drastically affected by this horrific phenomenon, that I vow to share with everyone I can so they don’t have endure the hell I’ve been through for over 11 years.

I feel it nesseasary,  as an ordained minister and journalist to make available any information that leads to wholeness and wellness. Many have no idea how toxic mercury is to the human body. Mercury is a deadly substance and yet dentists continue to fill the teeth of children and adults with it.

My husband and I were serious natural health people and we had read health articles about mercury amalgam fillings, so we decided to go to the local dentist ion our town. Today, we are regretful for our ignorance about what kind of dentist should do such a serious thing as amalgam removal. Just my one molar filling caused incredible damage and my life was turned upside down. I suffered relentless and unimaginable pain, isolation and impaired physical bodily functions.

This TMJ-Dystonia affliction also plunged my husband and I into a six thousand dollar debt for detox treatments. Our environmental MD, Dr. Rasa, trained in Dr. Klinghaddts mercury detoxifying program, was very concerned and compassionate when she saw me. She had never seen such intense symptoms in a metal-mercury issue. She did everything she could with no results.

I suffered a myriad of symptoms all relating to the compressed nerves intertwining in that jaw joint area. I had blurred vision when in certain positions, spastic tongue, (and also biting on my tongue so hard, I bled for half an hour and had excruciating pain). My masseter muscles, (chewing muscle) made me clench so hard, I cracked a back molar and had to get a crown. Other times, my mouth would open so wide, I could feel the hard tension and it hurt!

When lying in bed on my side, trying to sleep my sinuses would clog up and I could only breathe through my mouth. Most of the time, my vision is slightly blurred, but when I lay on my stomach, I can read the finest print and even see clearly the hole of the tiniest bead.  (One day, I was repairing a damaged beaded necklace and found that in my focusing on the beadwork, my throat and jaw muscles relaxed)! It was glorious to now get a respite from the tormenting and distracting pulling of my platysma muscles.

My symptoms were so distracting, troublesome and often so painful, I would have certainly had suicidal tendencies were it not for my intimate relationship with my Heavenly Father and Jesus. At the end of each day, I could wait to be entirely unconscious so I could enjoy some peace. It was a struggle every day to not speak death or negativity upon my coming into consciousness. My immediate thoughts would be, “I don’t want to have to go through another day again suffering this torment”. The average person without the Lord would ask for death. I also was getting more adept at praying fervent and victorious prayers to my Heavenly Father for strength and grace not to go insane with the pain. Without God also, I would be as mean as a snake because of my pain and discomfort. It is incredibly difficult living with a movement disorder. For me, there is no relief and no cure, (except for God). I minister to many Facebook Dystonia (and Lyme disease people), having also suffered from this vicious ailment). They suffer with isolation, damaged marriages and family lives and being unable to live their lives in a normal and productive fashion.

Please watch Dr Nicoles informative video. She is a blessing:

The Damaging Physical Manifestations of Mercury Poisoning

Platysma-TMJ Dystonia  also took a great toll on the teeth. The bruxism caused  my upper and lower teeth to clench and at other times the jaws open and close very wide every second or so. That makes it hard for me to eat, (and I avoid eating in public, because the food falls out of my mouth). Almost the whole first year my teeth clattered so hard that one of my back molars got cracked and I had to spend money on a crown. My wonderful holistic dentist, Dr Piela, from Lake Como, NJ insisted I pull it, but I lost a molar 15 years ago and didn’t want two empty spaces, (making a huge gap). And the possibility of a cavitation. I have problems with the tooth and either have to stick a hot needle to release the pus, or go to Dr Piela for an Ozone shot in that area. The Bentonite clay has been a help in keeping the infection and inflammation down. This bizarre ailment has made me go through the more crazy things to deal with.

During the first several years of this Dystonia situation, two different neurologists ordered MRIs. One prescribed pain drugs and muscle relaxants, (which I told him would not give me relief). The other neurologist give a quick glance and suggested my problem could be related to my past Lyme Disease episode. No one even approached the idea that my jaw could be dislocated. My husband Mark was severely affected by my trauma and pursued every modality he thought could help, including acupuncture, magnets, special TMJ supplements and Rife machine. None helped at all. It was becoming a great crisis for both of us and affected our marriage in ways we never thought of.

About eight years into the TMJ Dystonia nightmare, I was feeling excruciating pain in the other jaw joint. (Around the end of my first year after being diagnosed with Dystonia), the right jaw also became extremely greatly affected and I had to put heat and ice several times a day to endure the pain. I could feel an abnormal bump when I felt that area. Many times, sobbing hysterically, I would beg Mark to find another doctor to help me.

We couldn’t even enjoy activities a normal couple enjoyed, a nice meal at a fine restaurant, bike-riding, socializing, movie theaters and even a car ride was unfeasible because of the pain and discomfort of sitting up for a long period.
http://amalgam.org/education/scientificevidenceresearch/mercuryamalgamfillingsmajorfactorperiodontaldiseaseoralhealthproblems/

I suffered other manifestations of mercury and metal poisoning, including mineral deficiencies and digestive/ malabsorption problems. The condition of my hair, skin and nails was terrible, dry and brittle and as of late, my hair has not grown and has even broken up to the extent that I have almost shoulder length hair instead of the very long, luxurious mane I used to sport. The mercury seems to have accumulated because of my love for tuna fish, which I ate several times for the protein content. Under my new detox regimen, (nutritional Balancing), no tuna or fish is allowed.

When Mark and I lived at our water front home, we did twice weekly FAR sauna sessions in our downstairs music room. He had also reminded me to stay on distilled water, (I’ve been faithfully drinking distilled water since I married him) and now I am certain that this was a mistake because it robbed my bones and joints of the necessary minerals and nutrients it needed. Today, I don’t advise anyone to drink distilled water without the guidance of skilled natural physician who has expert experience in detoxification. I’m paying a heavy price for following  wrong health advice.

The past year and a half, the TMJ-Dystonia issue was unmanageable and I begged Mark to take me to a Doctor Jeffrey Brown, who shares a Sleep-TMJ practice in Church Falls Virginia. I’d done much research about jaw joint damage and treatments and found amazing You Tube videos of the work Dr Brown and Dr Stack were doing with a Gelb mouth appliance for Tourette’s syndrome and TMJ sufferers. I was convinced that the Gelb appliance was the only thing I’d seen which had the effect of stabilizing a spastic and maladjusted jaw joint. The mouth piece itself was a staggering $4,000, (and out of our budget) but I was constantly in excruciating pain and the quality of my life was worsening. Something had to give or I’d be good as a vegetable. I was desperate for some relief, from the teeth grinding and the opening-closing movement of my mouth really hurt my jaw joints.

I was so sure that I had a jaw issue that I asked my primary care physician to refer me to a specialist who could order an MRI of my jaw joints. He agreed and I made my appointment with Dr Carlson, EMT specialists. I greatly anticipated the MRI results and as I had known, the MRI showed extensive damage and no more cartilage. I sobbed hysterically when I shared the details with Mark when he got home from work. At least my suspicions were confirmed so I could move forward with a treatment.

Mark and I finally drove to Church Falls, VA for my first appointment, X-rays and mouth appliance fitting with Dr Jeffrey Brown, TMJ-Sleep Center. I told Dr Jeffrey, I believed the integrity of my head, mouth and throat tissues were compromised because of the mercury spillage and here was the result. I also mentioned that being I was a professional vocalist for many years, the belting and long hours of performing made my jaw joint “pop” and that must have been the joint getting out of the socket. So much for a vigorous singing career and drinking distilled water.

What have I learned from this health crisis? I lost so much living my formerly creative and active life. My confidence has plummeted, because the facial and mouth spasms are so apparent, strangers stare at me in the grocery store, the library or even just walking down the street for a walk. Singing, which usually comes so easily and naturally is now a physical feat of exhaustion. My Platysma and SCM muscles are so tight, I can barely breathe or get air. I believe the mercury may have also made me extremely sensitive to EMF and WIFI, as well as bright lights.

Thankfully, my strong prayer life and a life of walking in thankfulness and praise to my Heavenly Father and Jesus has kept me sharp enough to continue my journal blogs- on WordPress and performing-recording my compositions. I keep encouraging myself, remembering my upscale Jazz gigs and teaching my classes. One day, soon, I will be doing what I love uplifting people! Though being housebound has been a bummer and the vicious spasms have prevented me from bringing joyful music to the elderly residents at Buttonwood Hospital. I often struggle with feeling ugly and freakish, but I refuse to allow this brutal beast to keep me down forever. There are too many people I need to teach, encourage and inform on health and wellness in Christ. That is my hope, Christ is my healer.

I hope my sharing all the details of my mercury amalgam filling disaster will make you nervous and concerned enough to carefully research a highly qualified Holistic dentist to remove you or your loved ones mercury filling. Please make sure to watch the informative videos. I want to thank Dr Nocole for her excellent video. She is the kind of dentist you can trust to protect your health and future. I also recommend my dentist Dr Elizabeth Piela, Lake Como, NJ for east coast people.

I’d like to mention that many Cancer survivors fare better than victims of mercury poisoning. Their neurological dysfunctions and TMJ issues may be misdiagnosed and many thousands of dollars can be wasted for treatments that don’t address the true issue. I hope this article helps you to make good decisions about your dental health and treatments. Please feel free to contact Dr Nicole, Dr Piela or me to answer any questions you may have. God bless you and stay healthy!

 

 

 

WHAT NOW?


WHAT NOW?
The Election Of Donald J Trump as our 45 President
I woke up to the glorious news, that our new president is Donald J Trump.

Trump’s victory is monumental shift in the spiritual, political and economical atmosphere of our nation. Why? Because the United States has plummeted to the depths of depravity and staggering decay. You may ask, how is that so?

First I want to say that I write this expository not as a republican, but as a devote daughter and servant of Jehovah God most High, the Creator of the universe. I aspire to walk in the ways of His Son, Jesus Christ and His commandments .I am first a Christian, than a musician and then a woman.

Three years ago, I was immersed in my career and talent as a performer-recording artist. My life was centered around music, learning songs, getting my other band-mates prepared for the next gig, enlarging our fan base, promotion and booking gigs. Most of us adults have our own agenda or itinerary for our busy lives. Many adults are also parents, so most of their energy and time goes into their children and the kids affairs. In a nutshell, very few of us, (except many journalists and reporters) are adequately informed about the details of the various national ills, (and there are many, including abortion, child molestation, sex-trafficking, pornography, lawlessness, violent protesting, fraud, occultic influences, police assassination, racial division, and many more. My heart breaks for the diminishment of His creation because of deceived and demonic leadership. One only has to read the old testament prophets accounts of what happens to nations who surrender to rebellion, debauchery and disobedience. Truly, the mainstream population refuses to have anything to do withe honoring and keeping God’s commandment. I’ve seen many examples of downright disrespect towards Jehovah God by YouTube liberals, atheists and democrats would spit in God’s face if they could. I fear and cry for their souls!

The Dystonia condition which I was diagnosed with in 2006 worsened, but with its worsening came an urgent unction to pray and seeks God’s face. With that seeking, came His directives to address the crisis and ills plaguing our nation and which was drawing us closer and closer to the abyss of divine destruction,. God cannot tolerate sin and it seems very few (including professing Christian) have any desire to understand the mechanics and consequences of rebellion and disobeying His commandment.

I want to point out that my understanding regarding God’s perfect plan and mandate for His people in America came from the burden and weakness of enduring this Dystonia battle. Though it has been a daunting struggle each day, I must now consider it a blessing in disguise because it has established in me the calling of intercessor. It is in the war room that I find God’s strength to travail for the souls of men, women and children before the hammer of judgment comes down. .

I desire to see (through His wise eyes) and partner with Him to heal humanity from sin and depravity. My blood curdles in grief as I read about or watch the videos of the street massacre, violence and terrorist attacks here and abroad. Sadder yet, is the deceived responses of our professing brothers and sisters who are cussing and cursing Donald Trump. I wonder who has blinded their eyes?

Rest assured, those who are tweeting ” “Assassinate Donald “will be held accountable to God. Haters of Donald are haters of God because Jehovah God has chosen him to be His King Cyrus for America. God help those deceived who are thinking to do harm to our new president. God told us in the Bible, “Touch not mine anointed” Donald Trump was anointed by God for such a time as this. “Be not mocked, God will hold accountable. and woe to anyone who despises who God has appointed.

Here is a message for scoffers, God-haters, Donald J Trump Haters and haters of Gods commandment. For anyone ignorant of God’s commandment, I will give you a list of what Biblical righteous is and how it brings God’s blessing.

1. Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not murder. The murder of the innocent unborn since the passing of Roe VS Wade in 1973 is one main reason God has to judge. Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer. It’s been revealed that the Clintons and their circle has been involved in child sex-trafficking and occultist satanic rituals. This is an abomination to God!

2. Micah 6:8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Are most of the leaders, politicians and citizens walking justly or showing mercy? The murder of our police officers is certainly not showing mercy and neither are the violent threats by the Black Lives Matter entity. Violence and retaliation is the opposite of what Jesus Christ, the Messiah taught. He said we are to forgive and pray for our enemies. Mat 5:44 How can the leaders of anarchist groups expect God’s blessing on their hatred. It’s not going to happen.

Most of the American people have lost their direction and the ability to discern between good and evil because their spiritual compass has been damaged by demonic influences and strongholds. Jesus gave us a simple guideline as to how to deduce a righteous person or leader. You check their fruits.  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control . Gal 5:22.

If a person or leaders person exhibits bad fruit most of the time, they are unrighteous. The acts of the flesh are sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery; idolatry, sorcery; hatred, discord, jealousy, rage; rivalries, divisions, factions, Galatians 5 19&20. Any moral and sensible person would clearly discern that the Black Lives Matter (and any other violent group including ISIS, Hamass, Neo-Nazi groups and the like) group is ruled by anger, hatred and unforgiveness. Why would the American people support any candidate or leaders who has strong ties to the Muslim leaders who support Sharia Law? Obviously, many of our brethren are very uninformed, ignorant or just don’t care to do their research and educate themselves about righteousness and liberty. It is astounding to me the ignorance and stupidity of many of our college students and  professors who  support socialism! They should go to Cuba or Venezuela if they love socialism that much. And remember to take extra toilet paper because the people can’t  get it!

Too many of us are immersed in our own, small world.  I was certainly that way  five years ago.  I’ve spent thousands of reviewing t articles and videos of crisis-laden nations and cultures.  Many of us have no idea of the suffering and hopelessness  crushing citizens living under communist regimes.  Freedom of religion, freedom to defend themselves and entrepreneurship is denied. Under Sharia law, women are the victims of great abuse and suffering. Their husbands are allowed to beat them, they  suffer genital mutilation and not allowed to drive. A far cry from the democracy of the United States of America!

3. Work is good and the heartbeat of  a healthy American economy. Free entitlements also seem to be the deciding factor for voting democrat. Since when is the government  responsible for supporting the needy and especially able-bodied men who don’t want to work?

The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” 2 Thes 3:10  Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 1 Tim 5:8  God ordained work,  Adam and Eve were required to tend and keep the garden.  Support from the church was for certain widows who passed the criteria of lifelong service and godliness. The bottom line, history has proven that Socialism doe not work in the long run and nations who adopted it have failed miserably and put their citizens in dire straits. That is a fact.

God has given His people a great and merciful reprieve and we must be diligent in redeeming the time to bring in the harvest of souls. Our parents and grandparents slacked off in their calling to be the salt of America, so now we must take the Holy baton and run for the finish line.   May we pray for President Trump to seek the counsel of many advisors and that he will humble himself to God’s guidance. Here is where the saints must commit to strong intercession on his behalf in order that Father grants us the glory of a massive harvest of souls. Here is where we can love and support the refugees with Christ’s love.. Here is the opportunity for God to endue His people with new strategic solutions for the support of veterans,  the homeless, our unborn and their pregnant, unwed mothers. Their needs to be education and rehabilitation for boys and men to respect and honor girls and women. They need to know how disgraceful it is to see females as nothing but  entertainment for their pleasure!  Date rape, child molestation arises because of a disrespect for  the female race..We girls and women must also erect  strong boundaries regrading our sexuality and identity. Here is where parents, teachers as well as law enforcement must work together to  establish guidelines for respectful behavior.

We truly have our work cut out for us!. When pastors and leaders get the revelation that they need to teach the people how be properly and powerfully equipped for spiritual warfare, America will be a safer and more blessed nation. Demonization of even the godly is becoming more common because of dabbling with the occult and witchcraft. Satan will try to access any toe-hold to our spirit, so we must be diligent to guard our hearts, eyes and minds. We must not even take a sneak peek at pornographic images on our TVs, computers and magazines.

And so my brothers and sister abiding in Christ, we will have the victory May we be totally devoted to God’s commends and His righteous precepts and we will be blessed.

If you do not know why catastrophe has befallen America,. God told Moses:: in Deuteronomy 30

15 See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. 16 For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.

17 But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, 18 I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess.

Nothing could be more clear as what pleases God and . If you do not agree with His command, than you’ll have to wait for the day when we will stand before Christ as the Bema seat. Here we will be judged for what we have done  whether good or evil in our lives.

And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.
Revelation 20:12

May you choose life, so you can live and be blessed. Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

VOTES on the PRECIPICE


Image result for free pictures of the precipice t

The trumpet has blown and  we prayer warriors of the most High God, Jehovah are positioning ourselves for the greatest  spiritual battle of all time. For such a time as this, many have bee groomed and primed for Father’s exclusive use. As the prophet Joel, prophesied, many would have dreams and visions of the end times. God gives  visions of judgment and disaster so that His people know how to pray against it, (or at least to pray for the least amount of damage ). Visions are not always written in stone, so rather than we just sitting on our hands and doing nothing, it behooves us to consider the privilege of intercession and fasting. When disaster comes, so comes a great loss of life. This is exactly what satan loves, people meeting their end without God’s salvation.

Satan has many of us distracted and focused on the circus  and chaotic results of the debates and campaign. Meanwhile, we’ve lost sight of God’s concern…souls.  The righteous are faced with addressing the consequences of  a certain candidate inheriting the office.  Life in American as we know it will be so radically different that there will be rioting and  maybe even civil war…and most horrific yet, World War III!

The stability of our national destiny should be the urgent prayer priority of every believer in God and we should be considering how to get our lives in order and our hearts right with God.  We should be imagining  how difficult life would be for our children and grandchildren.  At this crucial time in history, how we should be often in our war rooms, petitioning and crying out to our Heavenly Father to intervene  the behalf of ourselves and loved ones.

We  stand at the precipice of the  future of our nation and we must seek God to correctly  interpret the words of his prophets, his servants who gave us insight about righteous and  wrong political and civic choices. ever before.  Sadly wisdom  and information online  still evades many of our brethren who are still slumbering  and those who are partially awake are still misguided by demonic deception..

God’s people can make an educated guess by deducing a candidates past and present fruits. Jesus said, “You’ll know them by their fruits. Mat 7:15 . No good tree gears bad fruit and no bad tree can bear good fruit. None of the candidates are perfect. and that has made many American citizens,  frustrated and confused.  We should do some investigating regarding the success of the candidates civic service.

While driving home from work, I recalled the many comments from people on YouTube and Facebook regarding the coming elections. .Many say they want no part of the circus hoopla.  God’s word rose up in me regarding Donald Trump,

                      God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those     who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. He chose the lowly and despised things of the world, and the things that are not, to nullify the things that are,…so that no one may boast in His presence!. 1 Cor 1:27

Some odd thing  God used for His purpose Balaam’s donkey.

Then the LORD gave the donkey the ability to speak. “What have I done to you that deserves your beating me three times?” it asked Balaam. Num 22:28

And God used Samson’s donkey jawbone to destroy his enemies!  Then Samson said, “With the jawbone of a donkey, I’ve piled them in heaps! With the jawbone of a donkey, I’ve killed a thousand men!” Judges 15:16

Did God care about the undignified objects he used for His purpose? He also used undignified people; the  cowardly, (Gideon), an orphan, Queen Esther-Hadasah,  a  gentile  widow, Ruth,  Rahab, a harlot, and impulsive, loose canon, Peter.  In this election, God is using a modern Cyrus, to  modern Cyrus to preside over his people.

In such a time as this, God is calling His people to ascend to higher heights of  faith-trust so we can weather the great political, social and spiritual storm facing us  Holy Spirit is wooing us to deeper levels of discernment/ wisdom and obedience. The body of Christ is embroiled in a tug-of-war  on earth as also in the heavenlies)as we watch the two candidates duke it out.  The hosts in heaven are embroiled in a huge battle engaging the hosts of hell, with  Satan at the helm, directing the demonic  battalions to wear out the saints of the most high God..

As the masses complain and  ridicule, we intercessors, reporters and journalists try  to make sense of it all and  for those who are still in limbo regarding voting. My interest in the presidential race goes beyond the  fanfare and media hype.The results of the elections provoke my humanitarian and philanthropic concerns.  The unborn, children and victims of Obama care have suffered under the bills of  the present administration. The elderly, hospice patients and veterans could also join the ranks of the aforementioned.

Many Black and Latino brethren have also been misled by propaganda,  ignorant and uninformed about the truth behind the  genocide of the Black unborn by Planned Parenthood.

.Our brother, David Harris junior, gives us a moving and  devastating account of why abortion has made our United States ripe for God’s judgment hammer. God’s true children deem infanticide as murder,  which is an abomination.  Thank you brother david for this moving video.

An unplanned pregnancy is not the end of the world or  a woman’s life. YouTube abounds with glorious stories of women who kept their babies and these babies fulfilled God’s wonderful plans.  God honored women who chose life for their babies!

Pastor Jim Garlow who recently guested on the Jim Bakker show, gave a succinct overview of the importance of voting. He touches on  how a socialist agenda doesn’t promote entrepreneurship, creativity or the health of our economy. The entitlement=driven  agenda also permanently depresses the underclass. He also gives a mini lesson on who and what Globalism is. It would behoove us all do our research, pray and fast for the future of our nation. This Jim Bakker episode has the most  information and resources for pastors, leaders and anyone who wants to be in the know about issues facing our nation.

How and Why You Need to Vote! (Day 2)

http://www.charismanews.com/politics/elections/60397-the-christian-vote-counts-in-this-election.

Here is a checklist of the issues a Godly candidate (for  our presidency should uphold and embrace..

Christian Voting Guide

1, The Sanctity of Life

2.  Our kinship and support of Israel

3.. Sanctity of  traditional marriage as one man and one woman

4.  The Empty seat vacated by  Judge Scalia

5. The Immigration (border)  Refugee Issue

We should not be focusing on trivial tabloid scandals, but focusing on the needful and crisis issues our next president needs to address. The future of our nation depends upon God’s people  being led by Holy Spirit.  We need to pray Father, thy will be done. Two dear pastor friends of mine, Pastor Augusto Perez and Pastor Ray Thoman have been blowing the trumpets for years now and say God’s people need to start seeking God’s face as never before. Pastor Augusto says that God’s people must stop looking at the natural. God wants us to acquiesce to His plan and purpose for America. He will bless when we are all in harmony. and walking in divine wisdom and revelation.

 

May God bless you as you stand as a good steward of the gift of voting which God has availed. I do not want to stand before Christ at the Bema seat and be ashamed that I squandered the many gifts He has blessed me with. May we all be His excellent stewards! God bless you all and may God bless America once again.j

THE GLORY OF KOINONIA, Part 2


Image result for free pictures of happy people talking

This week-end, my husband , Mark, struck up a conversation with a cook who was preparing his order. During the conversation, the pleasant young man remarked how he didn’t like the situation with the cooking oil that fried the pork also mingled with the other fried foods. He told Mark that his faith, Islam, prohibited the eating of pork. When the young man went outside for a cigarette break, Mark pointed out that he was concerned about defiling his body, yet he smoked. Then he shared about his Christian faith and his stance on dietary commandments. Then Jason told Mark he used to be a Christian.

A Facebook friend asked for prayer on her Facebook page. She was devastated about her boyfriend’s best friend committing suicide. She shared how wonderful and gifted he was and everyone’s shock about the shocking tragedy. As I basked in the warm sun, my heart suddenly ached for all the precious people who thought ending their life was the only way to end their torment. Even Christins were suicidal and I wondered what the missing link was.

Two other Christian brothers were also enduring a season of “disconnectness”.I continued to think about the various states of human emotion, embracing of life connection. The exquisite bed of soft solitude allowed me to even more deeply empathize with the emotion of alienation. I wondered what catalysts caused such separation in the spirit that ne would end their life. I continued to open my spirit to Holy Spirit for more understanding and insight. I thought of the Beatle’s Eleanor Rigby, John Lennona and Paul McCartney merely scratched the surface.

My thoughts went to a few relationships in my own life which had been severed suddenly by the other person. I felt very sad, having done all I could to reach out in love with a gifts and words of love. In both cases, the other person was a continual talker and most of the conversation was from their viewpoint. I must admit my weakness in not enjoying long, mostly one-sided long discourses . These people are insightful and intelligent, but their inability to venture out of themselves makes intimacy (and the continuation of the realtionship) difficult. Being so challenged with the TMJ- jaw-Dystonia issue, I need to limit my speaking. But if I am inspired by the equality and graciousness of the conversation, (not consisting extraneous verbiage and long-winded rambling). It can be draining and not edifying. And usually when the person talks for son long, I usually forget what I wanted to say!

Stimulation and inspiring conversationalist are rare. As I’ve often mentioned in many of my blogs and teachings walking in God’s excellence encompasses every aspect of life, particularly communicating and relationships. I believe poor communication, (with God and with each other) skills and self-centeredness is one great cause of sickness.

God ordained marriage and family for His glory and companionship Today, dependence on technology, (whoever instantaneous and far-reaching) has caused a great deficiency and quality of substance. Some keep in touch through emailing and texting, but there is truly nothing as fulfilling and nurturing as one on one, face to face contact.

Koinonia, (intimate fellowship) is a very fragile and complicated skill-attribute which can only be nourished by Holy Spirit. Koinonia is more than socializing, fellow shipping or hanging out. Koinonia is an unselfish desire to reach out with genuine interest and passion . It is also humbling ones own superiority in favor of allowing another to freely express himself.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or empty pride, but in humility consider others more important than yourselves. Pual wrote in Phil 2:4 4Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.

Koinonia, intimacy, is a very fragile and complicated skill which can only be nourished by Holy Spirit. Koinonia is more than socializing, fellow shipping or hanging out. Koinonia is an unselfish desire to humble ones own self in favor of allowing another to freely express himself. My prayer is that this precious revelation Holy Spirit gave me today, will will more illuminate the all in the body of Christ!

The Bible describes a special relationship between David and Jonathan in I Sam. 18:1 .

The soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.

Do we love each other as our own souls, or do we just tolerate each other. If an experienced elder gives us advice, are we resentful of offended> Do we disdain those who are not as intelligent or educated as us? Do we even go as far to severe a  connection because of an irreconcilable difference? There are times to separate, (if the difference is spiritually or emotionally wounding) and minister from afar if there are urgent physical needs. We should keep in mind the urgency of staying together in these very dark times. The government and the non-believing world will not be the shelter when disaster hits! It is the haven of the body of Christ which will be the safe place.

Since every child of God, is adopted into the royal family, we are all called to unity Eph 4:12

The following verses are some of the most sobering verses in the Bible regarding our quality of stewardship and collectively participating with the building of God’s house!

1 Cor 3 11-15 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

The bottom line, I ask holy Spirit daily, am I building up Father’s house or…am I tearing it down? God’s plan is to equip the saints for works of ministry, to build up the body of Christ, When God’s people start empathizing and show genuine interest in each other, we won’t feel, unloved, isolated and rejected. We will find purpose, joy and fulfillment in family, marriage and our love walk with God.

Heavenly Father, please pour you sweet Holy Spirit in even more glorious ways upon your body. So many lonely people are isolated, misunderstood and disregarded. Each one of us is special, fashioned by your won majestic hands, Father, let us continually forgive and let those who who hurt or offend us, also consider and ask forgiveness, so your family can be the LIGHT of the world You called her to be. Father mend the broken hearts in all of us and help us to be honest with You first and then with each other. Help us to take the lower seat, to get out of ourselves and to be interested in the interests of others! That will be a connective bond to draw us closer. Let us all, realize that none of us knows everything and if we humble ourselves and calls ourselves students of life, we will enjoy the wonderful of friendship and Koinonia. In Jesus name, amen.

God bless you beloved and may this post bring you into growth!

THE POWER OF COMMUNICATION 101


Apologizing the right way makes all the difference in a friendship. - JGI/Jamie Grill/Getty Images
Teaching Sunday August, 2016

As no time before in these turbulent and uncertain times has there ever been such an urgent need for productive and Godly communication…that discourse which builds bridges of courage (to weather the impending global events and prophecies) and hope, (that those who put all their trust in Jehovah and Yashuah Jesus. shall abide in safety and provision).

Communication blares everywhere, like a neon  light in the night, begging to be noticed.  New reporters and journalists vie for our attention and we are bombarded with reports via internet broadcasting, newspapers and word of mouth. The Bible says that knowledge will increase and indeed, information on just about everything can be taken from GOOGLE. Dan 12:4 4″But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”
One thing is sadly true, though, despite all the massive amount of information, mankind has not became smarter, but more hard-heated and arrogant.

The Bible has much to say about our words, (and even the intents of what we would say, but don’t). Jesus was not gentle when he confronted the hypocritical Pharisees. He blasted them and rightly so. Here is a case where He was angry, but He sinned not. Matthew 12:34N 34 Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. By the way there is a right time and righteous reason to be angry as long as you do not condemn or intend harm.

 

Those who are most fruitful in his/her Love walk and who greatly builds up the kingdom of God are those who are patient listeners, not just with their ears…but with their hearts. And they are longing for reconciliation

Ja. 1:19 19My beloved brothers, understand this: Everyone should be quick to listen, Leading worshipslow to speak, and slow to anger, 20for man’s anger does not bring about the righteousness that God desires.…

If Jehovah, the Creator of the Universe can beckon Isaiah to come and talk with him, why should not every one of us eagerly seek to talk, reason and be reconciled in peace with our brother or sister. There is a deep anchor of pride within us that craves the  possibility that our option or perspective is more valuable than our brethren s. This is called being arrogant or puffed up in our own wisdom. I’ve seen discord, misunderstanding and severed friendships  so often and by all kinds of people.  Some beautiful and long-time friendships ended because of pride and the refusal to listen with an open heart.

Can we just find a nice cafe or order a pizza and sit down at the table with the desire to be reconciled again? Well, it’s not going to  happen if one or both of us refuse to be humble, listen and discuss issues of difference. Stories abound where congregations divided because of sharp disagreement with their pastors. Very sad and how Father yearns that His children live together in peace. Peace and reconciliation are the things most needed in Father’s house.

As a communicator, I am passionate to see marriages, families, neighborhood, cities and nations resolve their differences thru telling the truth in love. This seems to be an impossibility in light of the nature of  people caught up in their own small whirlwind world.   We can visit YouTube any day and see countless examples of angry, seething crowds and groups at enmity with each other. Even brother and sisters in Christ  disagree about  Donald Trump and the candidates. And debates prevail regarding everything from the refugees, our borders, Christian genocide and Transgenderism.

How do we navigate the vicious maze of heated debate in a matter which would be gracious and illuminating? We American Christian are indeed facing the most challenging time in history and the lack of truth, righteous conversation, strategy and prayer are the missing ingredients to tackling the job at hand..making sense of. life and our nation’s future. The good new is…With God all things are possible, even the healing of our nation.

I’ve heard two prominent pastors confirm the need for wise strategy, and and intercessory prayer in the context of a reasonable round-table discussion. The barriers to solutions of our great problems are differences in perspective, religious backgrounds and ethnicity. .

In studying more in depth Spiritual warfare, I learned  that lack of truthful communication lends itself to resistant strongholds of the mind.

One of the most spiritually reputable Pastors whom I highly respect, the late Pastor Derrik Prince, discussed in detail three areas where there was a barrier to godly communication. In chapter thirteen of his book Pulling Down Strongholds, Pastor Derrick discusses areas which block freedom of righteous thinking. These three areas he calls modern high places, are

  1. The basis of nationality

Yashuah Jesus there is no nationality or gender. There is no Greek or Jew, Master nor slave, Male nor female. We are all equal, yet there are still denominations or sects which believe females are not allowed to preach or teach or have any area of leadership.

2. The Basis of a particular  Doctrine

Many people who are devout Catholic refuse to even consider the concept of being born-again or the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and   idolize Mary and the saints. Some Christian sect want nothing to do with anything related to prophecy or even  the existence of demons.

3. The Basis of Loyalty to a specific Leader

Some people will listen only to pastors or teachers whose doctrine they follow.  Their minds are completely abhorrent to even listen to others  anointed teachers who preach the correct doctrine.

Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. We must continue to declare with our mouths,  God’s word and truth when we hear it preached.not just our hearts God’s truth

King David lived by his Psalm 19:14

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

May we be like David who pleaded with God  May my prayer be counted as incense before You; The lifting up of my hands as the evening offering. 3Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips. 4Do not incline my heart to any evil thing, To practice deeds of wickedness With men who do iniquity; And do not let me eat of their delicacies.…

Oh,  my we  be ever careful that our words do not decree a curse or block a blessings from anyone. And may our goal be to  refine the way we respond to someone who hasa differing opinion. We would be very wise to watch the company we keep, because God has called us tp peace and harmony. The NIV version of proverbs 22:24 says,

..Do not make friends with a hot-tempered person, do not associate with one easily angered,

I WILL NOT LAY DOWN

Ministering to elderly and sick nursing homes residents with Pee-Wee.

Note to Readers: My journaling of my battle with Dystonia-TMJ is to bring awareness to friends l loved ones in the hopes of giving more help, compassion and understanding to our deficiencies. I also hope doctors and medical personnel can understand the various areas of our lives that are restricted  and inhibit by inability to administer to our former duties, responsibilities and personal creative endeavors.  These journal entries and (medical personnel involved) . Our symptoms may even affect our judgement and/or mental-emotional prowess before we  had our condition. The utmost patience and compassion is needed for us to be contributors to our father’s kingdom. May our prayers, not just  for Dystonia, Alzheimer, Dementia ( or any other victim of a health disorder,)  not just be for our immediate healing, (so we don’t have to be inconvenienced) but to teach us patience and forbearance.

Journal Entry,  July 5, 2016

Just woke up to another overcast day, promising more rain. I don’t complain because many states are in a water crisis. My vegetable garden is flourishing, but the barometer and humidity has wrecked havoc with my jaw joints. When atmospheric pressure changes,  my neck muscles, nerves and jaws go berserk, making it almost impossible to accomplish any thing with merit. It’s going on two weeks trying to get together two of my best story to send to Guidepost inspirational magazine. I’m also waiting to get motivated to send m art package to a greeting card company here in Paterson, NJ.

Each day is different in this season of TMJ Dystonia in regards to what I’m able to accomplish, but it’s always the same regarding my determination to receive my miracle manifestation of healing. God has still not answered my question regarding what purpose this tormenting condition persists.  At times my flesh reminds me that it’s going on nine years and if God had a great plan for me, how could He be so cruel to allow it to linger and so curtail my vivaciousness and productivity. I remind myself that Abba is a good God and everything He gives is wonderful and needful to His children. One thing I know for sure ..that His ways are perfect and He does know how much I’m suffering. Satan’s plan is always to ambush our minds and barrage us with a continual spray of doubting questions, physical pain and our focus of it.

At times when I have a moment of peace, such as when I’m pulling acorn seedlings in my yard, I feel His gentle presence. Oddly, my muscles rest and my jaw is calm. My jaw and throat also seem to get calmer while I’m focusing on my fine bead work. But mostly, I’m groaning in agony as I press forward, (much like pushing through a tropical impenetrable forest),  through each hour to make it to bedtime. Here is where I rely on Father’s strength each day for sanity! When the neck spasms get so bad that I fall on the floor and writhe in pain, I can’t bare to be alive. Here is where I have to take captive that demonic spirit of suicide, death and insanity. I can’t explain to anyone except someone enduring daily pain on a scale of 8 or nine every waking moment of their lives.

After these many years, I deal with  the grief of losing a good chunk of my life. A dark season of nine years is a lot. I know brother Joseph, in the Bible, had to bear thirteen years of incarceration, but having a agonizing and distracting bodily condition is a whole new ball game. The most painful thing for me is deducing my relationship with Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit. I’ve always believed that valid and thriving  relationship with the Lord had to be true and breath-takingly reverent. My prayer times are anything but reverential  There’s a whole lot of shaking and  jerking going on, hardly my idea of anything pleasing to God!  My focused prayer and devotions to Him are at best , sporadic. (I’m just being transparent with you). I often go in to prayer expecting  the outcome to be detached and superficial because  mostly… I weep through the whole time! Whew. Imagine struggling through your talking to father God?

“Father forgive me for being this way.”

Maybe tomorrow, I will have no more spasms and I can joyfully never and praise him. This is the uncharted waters that the Bible doesn’t address, so I have to contend with disgust of my inability to give Father my best and to even give Him His proper due.

The other devastating thing i that doctors I’ve seen have no idea where to even start for a treatment program. They look at me in surprise and apologize that there is nothing they can do. I’ve been researching and GOOGLING for over six years and have  found only a few doctors who specifically treated Dystonia of the mouth and.or upper cervical area. A girl freind  messaged me a few weeks ago telling me she also was researching my condition and found a  Dr LEE, who has a private practice   in South Korea. Many of his  Dystonia and TMJ patients were getting successful results with his treatments!  I also found a doctor  in  DE who treated TMJ. Unfortunately, they are very few and far in between in NJ and to travel to other states like the doctor in Teaas would be very costly and inconvenient for my husband to take off work. I continue to ask and pray whether father wants me to wait for His divine supernatural creative miracle for my jaw or travel to a  TMJ physician. Father be merciful to us who are suffering.

July 4th was spent praying for a breakthrough rest with my jaw and neck spasms. The day was already almost half over and I needed to express my love for my Heavenly Father. it was so frustrating, picking up my Taylor and just jerking so wildly, I had to lay down. Uselessness and despair threatened to ruin my day, but finally picked up my guitar anyway and started to sing my favorite energetic hymns, like Onward Christian Soldiers.  Anyway, I am more than a conqueror!

Fast forward today, brought my Bible, a Max Lucado devotional and Jewel’s book, Chasing The Dawn into the bedroom. I prayed that something would awaken my heart and I’d be able to move forward into my day. My eyes fell upon the subtitle of Jewel’s book, Melbourne, Australia. I’ve always dreamed of Australia even as a young girl. Down Under seemed a glorious utopia far away from the chaos and heartache of my present circumstance of my parents plan to divorce. I often dreamed in my bed at night that I would somehow end up there and live a peaceful and creative life!

So Jewel expressed the sensations of her entering the stage to perform her repertoire to her Australian fans. Her writing was so elegant and enticing, making me miss my own performing and composing tenure. I felt a profound sense of loss that I was so far and disconnected to that glorious season of my life. Words cannot describe a performance were the performer “feels” her audience and they feel her. It is an indescribable connection that infuses the artists expression of singing-performing (and doctors have no idea the profound effects that a neurological disorder as Dystonia-TMJ can have on the creativity of a talented singer-composer. This has been a major grief, few realize  the extent of loss when a performing artist is unable to perform (and compose)  at the high level she was used to. I feel less than human and disconnected that this condition has so disrupted the  beautiful overflow of expressing my music-soul.

When I perform before an audience, it’s like I gently fall off a trapeze like a leaf  I lose all sense of the present, of time and the faces that gaze at me.  Father placed me in a I  a divine bubble and I’m floating in His love. Everything around me fades into nothingness and all I’m aware of is the holiness  (and lightness0 of His presence. This has happened several times. Twice, when I sang at dying persons’ deathbed and at a funeral service, where a seer told my husband she saw cherubim dancing joyously around me as I sang my Psalm 91 original. Another recent time, was just last month while singing two of my favorite Hymns His Eye is on the Sparrow and It Is Well at a church concert. . Despite the fact I was miserable and my neck was inflamed with pain and my mouth was  moving violently, I grabbed Father’s hand and took His strength. No one could have been more surprised than me, when everyone stood up and joined me on the heart-rending chorus, It is Well With My Soul. I knew it was God and God alone who carried me through the song.

10-17-2012-205THE VOICE of an ANGEL

A girl, her voice and Guitar, Proclaiming the Love of Christ!

This dark season I’m immersed in is complicated, daunting and bizarre with its untold repercussions. I can’t bare to be seen in public because of the embarrassing facial grimaces and my arms and upper shoulder jerking. Even standing in line at the post office for fifteen minutes is main achievement. With these negative symptoms molding me into something no one would want to be, I’ve learned to make some adjustments. I’ve long discarded the activity of complaining and have made a lovely habit of making someone’s day a little better. If I’m at the grocery store I find something attractive about the person near me and compliment them. I so delights me to see them smile and to make their day by a compliment. The practice of being a blessing to someone is a high point of my day. I refuse to give the enemy any ground or make him think that his attacks on me will sully God’s wonderful destiny for me. I want to please my Father by serving and being a blessing no matter how hard it is! I feel sad for mean people because I know that they’ve not practiced and seen the results of kindness in spite of their physical misery, stressful relationship or mundane life. Persistent acts of kindness and serving cheerfully is evidence of a God-infused lifestyle.
All this being said, I’m reminded of President Abraham Lincoln, One of the greatest presidents who ever lived, who endured and succeeded despite countless failures and  disappointments, shut doors and heart-aches. Amazingly, he grabbed the bull by the horn  in all his tenacity and audacity…his faith in God almighty.  He prevailed, head held high even during one of America’s most horrific times, the Civil War. Though I’m not faced with anarchy, riots and the threat of assassination, I still am facing a mountain which shall be moved by my obstinate faith in the God who restores and rewards all things.

http://www.school-for-champions.com/history/lincoln_failures.htm#.V3v21hJ4K1s

Weathering Dystonia,  (as president Lincoln faced his own giants) I know that God must have a very important job for me to do in the future and He is preparing and training me for such a time as this. Thankfully, July 5, 20016, we are still in peace here in America and life is somewhat normal. I recently watched a Christian outreach organization,  Ezra International outreach who focused their relief efforts on the refugees from cities near Ukraine. Soldiers had all but demolishes the businesses, neighborhoods and banks by bombs and machine gun fire. I couldn’t believe my eyes as I gazed at the footage of such devastation. Thousands were killed, there were bodies in the streets and many holocaust survivors were starving and left on their own. America could soon be enduring the same fate and I prayed that God would be merciful to the sick, elderly and young ones. Any of us American citizens could suddenly face the terrible war atrocities as our brethren in war-torn Ukraine and any other middle eastern city!

So… it would behoove me…and everyone to thank God that our country is still somewhat intact and not facing the atrocities and hardships of war and judgment.  Maybe for a short time, we are still the land of the free and though my own personal suffering is challenging, t’s nowhere near the suffering of people who’ve had their homes destroyed by bombs and have no where to go to get their next meal.

Dystonia reminds me of the need to be more compassionate, empathetic and giving of my resources to those who have less. Though I’d never wish anyone to endure a condition that robs and diminishes so much of our lives, the blessing in disguise is the  awareness and empathy of others sufferings and the motivation to do something about it!

Perhaps that is the gift Father looks to glean when we face a loss or bodily suffering. May father use you and I greatly to strengthen someone who has a deformity, impediment of disability
