The Ebola Vaccine - Vaccine Ethics


With the recent release of the Merck's new live ebola virus in a vaccine in Japan in early December 2019, the question has been asked if this is ethical considering that aborted foetal tissue is not being used to make this vaccine, though many other vaccines are made using aborted foetal tissue. This is a live virus and studies have shown that it is not only contagious for up to 2 weeks later but that it is heavily linked to auto-immune diseases.  If that wasn't enough to make it not ethical, here are a few more, from a biblical perspective. A virus from a monkey should not be injected through the skin into a human being. The immune system will have an enormous allergic reaction to such an invasion. And that is what has been found. Anaphylaxis is one of the side effects that has been found. That makes it potentially life threatening for any one trialing this vaccine.  Touching a monkey or patting one, caring for a pet one etc is totally different to injecting oneself with a bit of virus/blood product from a monkey, with the bizarre vain 'hope' of improving your health. The intent in the latter is wrong. The intent is to deceptively trick the population into believing they are immune from a money's disease, which the vast population would not come into contact with naturally anyway. 

You could say the same about shellfish. Someone who is allergic to shellfish is able to swim in the ocean, where they might imbibe minuscule particles of fish, that might just be floating in the sea water. They also might be able to touch a bit of dead crab shell lying on the beach without an allergic reaction. What they can't do, is sit down at a table and eat a prawn or have rice cooked in prawn broth, without having a severe life threatening allergic reaction.  It's about intent. 

In the Bible, we are warned away from eating/consuming shellfish and monkey because they will make us very sick. I don't fry up monkey and serve it for dinner. Neither do I take a bit of it's blood and inject it into my body to 'improve my health.' Eating not touching. In the garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were warned by God, to not eat one fruit. They were not told they couldn't touch the fruit. satan told them that. God's intent in warning us, is that He doesn't want us to get ill. He knows how we are created. He made us and designed us. We are also severely warned in the Bible to stay away from eating/consuming blood products (animal and human). We are not told we can't touch blood, human or animal. We are told to not eat or consume blood. A vaccine that injects a blood product into the human body in the vain hope 'that your health will improve' is deceptive at it's root. That is why it is called a pharmaceutical. Pharmakeia is Biblical greek for sorcery. It means to drug into a stupor. The intent is evil. The intent is to thwart God's law. God told us not to eat or consume blood products and or monkey and or shellfish. He warned us because he knew it would hurt us. He made us to work one way - His way only.  

Deliberately doing something wrong is way worse than accidentally doing something wrong. The brain is wired on intent. There are sins of omissions and sins of commissions. Omissions - means I didn't know I was doing the wrong thing, but afterwards my conscience warned me that something was wrong. Commissions - means I know that I am doing something wrong and I don't care anyway. Commissions have a much higher penalty - as we all understand. An accidental death of a man or woman or baby, through a car accident or plane crash where no one is at fault and it's just a glitch in a computer system where there was never an intent to create such a glitch, is not the same as the deliberate murder of an innocent person with malice and aforethought, in that in the latter, an appointment is made to go to the 'clinic' to have the child killed. A baby that has been aborted is the death of an innocent person with malice and aforethought. By law, after 20 weeks it legally requires a death certificate and burial and a name. The intent was to kill the innocent baby for convenience. The unjust death is celebrated not mourned. 

God says it never even enters his mind to do such a thing. 
He asks us to trust Him to provide for our needs. 
He asks us to ask Him for our needs in prayer and then he will direct our path as to how that need is provided for (we might get a pay-rise etc or a new job). 

The idol behind abortion is molech.  If we then use that blood product from the aborted foetal tissue and inject it into another human being in the vain hope that it will improve their health, the Bible says that is sorcery and a crime according to the Word of God. 

We are to worship and serve God only. Both can be forgiven by God when we truthfully say sorry. But once we say sorry, we are not supposed to continue to do that action - though there is a small window of grace, whilst we change our previous habit. 

God loves justice but he also loves to forgive us more. Thank you Jesus, that you came and died for us to save us from ourselves. As human beings, we are broken and in desperate need of your holy wisdom and grace. We give thanks for that and trust in you as our only saviour. Thank you that we worship and serve a Living God, not a dead one.

Don't let the sun go down on your anger.
"Forgive us our debts as we forgive those who trespass against us."

    Raise a Signal!

    Announce and proclaim among the nations, 
    lift up a banner, a signal 
    and proclaim it: 
    keep nothing back, 
    but say 

    "Babylon will be captured;
    Bel will be put to shame, 
    Marduk filled with terror. 
    Her images will be put to shame 
    and her idols filled with terror."

    Take up your positions around Babylon,
     all you who draw the bow.
    Shoot at her! 
    Spare no arrows,
    for she has sinned against the LORD.
    Shout against her on every side!
    she surrenders, 
    her towers fall, 
    her walls are torn down,
    since this is the vengeance of the LORD, take vengeance on her.
    Their arrows will be like skilled warriors 
    who do not return empty handed.

    So Babylonia will be plundered;
    'all who plunder her will have their fill' declares the LORD.

    In those days, at that time, declares the LORD, the people of Israel and the people of Judah together will go in tears to seek the LORD their God.

    They will come and bind themselves to the LORD,
     in an everlasting covenant
    that will not be forgotten.

    in those days, at that time, declares the LORD, 
    "search will be made for Israel's guilt,
     but there will be none,
     and for the sins of Judah, 
    but none will be found, 
    for I will forgive the remnant I spare!"

    A black horse thunders in the dark night, racing, racing, it's rider clothed in black, cloak lit only by the light of the sliver of the moon. Hunched, the Rider speeds his horse, faster, faster towards the stone wall. The wooden door in the wall is open.  He steers his stead towards the door where men are waiting. The trail is muddy, winding and wet. The Rider turns his head to look behind him as the horse continues to gallop towards the wall. Faster. Faster. Urgently he rides bringing a message of hope. A large tree looms. The Rider crouches lower on his horse as the horse gathers speed to avoid the overhanging branch.

    Suddenly, the men shut the door, fearful of the rider. They lower the bar to secure the door from the inside. Peering through the peep hole they watch the Rider rapidly approach. Scared. Timid.

    More men are hiding in the tree. Hidden by the shadows of the dark night. They set the trap. A branch swings down and whacks the rider from his horse. He falls to the ground, in the wet mud. Stunned. The dark shadowed night obscures his identity.

    The men peer down from the tree. Those behind the wall begin to open the door.

    Can the rider be trusted?

    What was he doing racing towards them in the dark of night?

    Who was he?


    Stunned the Rider lay on the ground. Unable to comprehend what has just taken place.

    "Get up! Get up!"An unknown woman's voice urgently calls. "Get up!"

    "Shut out? Shut out?
    Why? 
    I mean them no harm".

    "They do not trust you" she says.
    "For all they have known is abuse, not love."

    "Who is this woman?
    Where is she?"

    Slowly the Rider re-mounts his horse.
    Slowly he walks his horse towards the wall.
    Again the door is quickly shut.
    Timid and fearful, the men await the approach of the Rider....

    In gentleness and trustworthiness is your salvation, in quietness and rest is your peace.

    Learning to Fight Illnesses Naturally



    Growing up, my generation habitually was raised to fight illnesses with pharmaceuticals including antibiotics and vaccines. However this is strongly warned against in the Bible. Even a cursory read of a pharmaceutical or vaccine insert will assert that there are complications and contraindications, let alone the growing mountain of research and antidotal evidence supporting the worldwide existence of vaccine injury and pharmacology injury, proving once again that God was correct all along, when He warned us to  “Stay away from vaccines. Stay away from drugs,” as we would say these days.

    79.4% of babies who died from SIDS had more than 1 vaccine administered on the day they died. That is a significant finding, despite what some might try to argue. Herd immunity is not promised in the vaccine inserts, nor is it observed in the community. Children vaccinated against chicken pox develop chicken pox soon after. A hospital staff member contracts TB from a patient despite up-to-date TB immunisation. A child develops polio from a polio vaccine and remains paralysed for life. Families are fed 'fear driven lies'  to pressure them to conform to the sorcerers. Money is stolen and not returned. 

    Who covers the cost of that?

    Allergies are on the rise. Why? Over 100 years ago, a link was found by Nobel Laurete Charles Richet to food proteins now used in vaccines.  The Rotarix, Rota Teq and Zostavax vaccines are all made using pork, a very common food allergen which God lovingly warns us in His Word, will make us sick.

    Did we not listen?

    A large number of the vaccines are made using aborted foetal tissue. Their human remains are trafficked to the sorcerers. That is not ethical healing. That is not sanctioned by the Bible. That is not holy. It never even entered God’s mind. Abortion is demonic at it’s root. Approximately 100 000 babies are brutally aborted each year in Australia. That is not a comfortable number. It took 99 aborted foetuses to make the rubella vaccine. The number of babies being aborted are growing not decreasing. The community is demanding more and more that the law makers allow the innocent slaughter of the unborn child. Now it’s legal in Queensland, Australia, after a failed abortion to leave the child to die - even if the abortion is conducted at 40 weeks. This new found 'pagan freedom' is proudly celebrated by those in 'leadership', not grieved before the LORD God. The demonic attempts to raise it's ugly head to rule.

    Who is to blame?

    Sexually transmitted diseases from human blood infected with sexually transmitted diseases is marketed and injected into to our daughters at 12-13 years of age, despite the fact that they are not sexually active or legally sexually active. Quarantine laws are not upheld and an STD disease spreads to the girl. 

    Is this love?

    Live viruses are injected into human beings and the human being becomes contagious for 2 weeks, spreading the virus to others, though the unvaccinated are blamed for passing along the virus, yet all they did was lovingly warn others of the impending crisis. Oppressive taxation is legally sanctioned by Governments towards those who lovingly raise concerns. Threats of incarceration are made. Threats of child abuse are made towards those lovingly protecting their young, inciting hatred and vilification towards loving parents.

    Did we just shoot the messenger? 


    "Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill all the prophets. How I long to gather you under my wings, like a chick underneath the wings of it's mother. But you would not listen!" - Jesus

    Best practice is not upheld. Patients are left on pharmaceuticals indefinitely, without a trial off them. Pharmaceuticals are prescribed though they are contraindicated, for mammon rules the heart not God. Warnings regarding the high heavy metal content in vaccines are ignored. Family are discouraged to raise concerns and threatened with legal action for voicing what they observed. Many pharmaceuticals use bizarre ingredients such as ‘humanised mouse cells’ and Chinese hamster ovaries or pregnant horse urine, in the case of Premaline a pharmaceutical later easily linked to poor health in women. Blood transfusions are carrying diseases to their recipients as documented in the literature. Organ donor recipients quickly develop cancers from the significant pharmaceuticals they must consume to attempt the body from rejecting another person’s organ. Medical doctors know this, though most are very, very uncomfortable discussing it. They also know there is documented evidence vaccines trigger auto-immune diseases. They write it in the medical charts when they are taking the patient’s history - “recently vaccinated with flu vaccine”. Did they warn their patient before administering the vaccine or pharmaceutical? Informed consent is NOT the same as informed refusal. 

    What do the pharmacist’s propose is the solution to this problem? 
    Increase the vaccines schedule and increase the pharmaceuticals? 
    Isn’t that promoting a drug addiction? 
    Does that not break quarantine laws further? 
    Do babies need to be given Hep B? 
    Does a baby need to be given Gardasil 9- a vaccine for an STD?  
    Why would they want to do that? 
    Yet they promise us that this is good for us.

    How do we discern who is right and who is wrong? 
    Must we all continue to touch what God clearly told us not to? 

    “Stay away from pharmaceuticals. Stay away from blood and blood products. Stay away from sorcery. Stay away from sexual immorality. It will hurt you.” Yahweh Elohim Jesus Messiah.
    “There are six things that the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to Him; Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that run swiftly to evil, a false witness who gives false testimony, and one who stirs us discord among brothers.” Proverbs 6:16-19
    This is what the Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says: "In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it. 
    Yes, the blood of Jesus Christ covers our debt. But what then, shall we deliberately sin all the more so that His grace can abound? No! Romans 6:15

    Q. So what do we do when we find our old ungodly illness fighting habits are no longer an option? 

    We look to God’s word for the way forward. The Bible teaches us to fight sickness and illnesses differently, using a more godly, natural, prayerful, praised based approach. 

    Our family has done this for 7 or so years now and we have been a lot healthier for it. Our severe food allergies and anaphylaxis have faded away. The debilitating fatigue that went along with that has gone too. Do we ever get sick? Yes! Everyone gets sick at some point. Our approach is to fight the illness naturally, to stay away from blood and blood products (Acts 15:20) and pharmaceuticals (sorcery).

    Learning to fight illnesses naturally was a steep learning curve for me. Natural alternatives were given only a cursory glance in my bachelor's degree. Most doctors I've met, don't know the first thing about how to fight common illnesses naturally. they are taught to prescribe pharmaceuticals, not promote healing. Personally, I think that is something that could be improved upon in their training, So, how does our family approach illness naturally? Check out our new habits below, all of which are sanctioned by the Bible in aiding health. 

    Please be aware when you are researching this topic and doing your own homework, that not everything written in the references below I agree with, with the exception of the Holy Bible. Remember that the Holy Bible is Canon and as such, everything else must be read through 'its filter'. Before reading a book, article etc I have a habit of praying and asking the LORD God to show me truth, protect me from any lies and to help me discern, through the power of His Holy Spirit. This I have tried to instil in my children also, as a good habit. 

    "Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well." 3 John 1:2
    Natural Healing
    1. Prayer and Praise and Thankfulness - Put Jesus Christ first. He is the ultimate healer. As the Creator of our bodies, He owns us and He knows what is best for us. Always pray first and seek Yahweh in prayer, tell Him your needs with a thankful heart. Praise Him when you are sick. Praise Him when you are well. Sing unto the LORD God, the praise that is due to His Name. Make sure He gets the glory due His Name. Write a list if you have to of all the good things the LORD God has given you that you are thankful for.
    2. Clean Water and Air- Clean water is vital for our health, humanly speaking. We prefer filtered rainwater to town water with fluoride and chlorine. We prefer to swim in the ocean and in sea water pools than chlorinated swimming pools. The fluoride and chlorine destroy the lining of the gut and cause long-term health problems. You can easily boil water, use a charcoal filter or UV filter if you are concerned about the quality of your water. Please do you own homework. The quality of the air we breathe is also important. We all intrinsically know this. Avoid as much as possible fumes and toxins in the air. Control what you can control and leave the rest up to God.
    3. Organic Whole Foods - No one really likes food covered in pesticides and insecticides or other chemicals. Highly processed foods have less nutrients than processed foods. Fresh is best. Eat a wide variety of foods. Let no food become an idol. Avoid artificial additives and preservatives. You can either purchase organic fruit and vegetables at the markets or shops or grow your own. The choice is yours.  So how does God define ‘food’ in the Bible? There are some things He warns us not to eat as they will make us sick (meat fat, pork, rabbit, kangaroo, emu, camel, shellfish, shark, fungus, sea vegetables, crocodile, cashews (the seed is outside the fruit), mould, mildew, chemicals, drugs, etc (Lev 10 is a good start). Then there are the foods that the LORD has specifically told you not to eat. There is evidence in the Bible that some families were told not to eat certain foods or drink as part of their covenant with the LORD. Be aware of those too and respect others who have this covenant with the LORD. If you are not sure, ask Jesus in prayer. The other important thing to keep in mind is the ratio of foods that you eat. We are told specifically that too much alcohol makes us drunk, too much meat makes us gluttonous, too much honey makes us vomit etc. Food groups needs to be eaten in the right ratio. If you have 'over indulged' in the past for example in meat or sweets, you may need to 'under indulge' for awhile to balance you body's biochemistry. If you have eaten the bread of idleness for too long, ask the LORD to teach you about the bread of diligence and a healthy work ethic. If you have eaten the bread of malice, ask him to teach you about the daily bread of love and forgiveness. Watch out for the yeast of the pharisees.  Respect others for what they are eating. Don’t lead them into temptation. If you have concerns, first raise them prayerfully with God before quietly and gently approaching someone else about their eating habits. Spend time looking at what the Bible says about healthy eating practices. It's a wonderful Bible study.
    4. Quarantine - We isolate the ill person or persons to prevent the spread of the illness as much as possible. I was pleased to read in "None Of These Diseases" how the Old Testament pattern of quarantine has been found to be the most beneficial. Funny that! Yes, it means we may have to cancel previous commitments. Yes it means you can't always go to out. Yes it means we may need to stay home more and slow down and rest. But it has always been wisest to show love to others by not deliberately breaking quarantine.
    5. Feed vs Fast - My now 97 year old grandmother gave us a piece of her wisdom several years ago in regards to this. She said, "feed a cold; starve a fever". Practically, that means, we increase our healthy daily calorie intake when we have colds and flus and fast (abstain from food) when we are feverish. It's amazing how something as simple as this has helped our family so much.
    6. Broths - Never underestimate the wisdom of consuming homemade, organic chicken, lamb, beef or fish broth. This is a nutrient dense food, that is documented to heal the lining of the gut (stomach and intestines) quickly. This is made by simply placing an organic carcass (fat removed) in a large pot and covering it with clean, filtered water. Add salt and possibly a dash or two of apple cider vinegar. Bring it to the boil and simmer for 1.5 to 3 hours. The minerals and nutrients will come out of the bones and into the the water. You can sip steaming cups of broth or alternatively,  use the broth as liquid in stews / soups or when cooking brown rice. I know of a mother who used this with her son, with excellent success when he was required to be fed via PEG (tube into the stomach). I did a lot of broths successfully when I was breaking my drug habit. I needed to reseal the lining of my gut after it had been destroyed from the drugs.
    7. Probiotic foods - Fermented foods put back in the good gut flora that your body uses to digest it's food. Antibiotics kill off the good flora in your body. Probiotics put it back in. Eat your probiotic foods in the same proportions as a healthy diet. By that I mean, eat mainly probiotic vegetables (sauerkraut, kimchi, pickled onions/beans/carrots), a little dairy if you are able and even less of the fermented drinks like komucha or water kefir. You can learn to make anaerobic probiotic foods from library books, the internet, cooking courses or a friend. 
    8. Herbal teas - We educated ourselves through library books and the internet on the usage of herbal teas for common aliments. We keep a good selection of organic, herbal teas on hand. There are herbs that work as expectorants for chest infections, there are herbs that cleanse the liver, there are herbs that soothe sore throats, to name just a few. We've found this is an affordable solution to many illnesses. 
    9. Poultices - It is amazing how a simple poultice can heal. We had no idea how effective these were until we tried them. I do not understand the science behind these, but that does not stop me using them. On one occasion, my son had a severe ear ache involving cellulitis. For several days he was unable to eat because his jaw was swollen shut. We had been to the Dr but the pharmaceuticals we were given were causing severe diarrhoea, so had to be stopped. My son was becoming sicker. A friend came over and showed us how to apply a poultice. Within 1 hour of applying an onion and garlic poultice...the fever was gone and my son slept without pain all night! The next morning he was able to eat. We continued to apply the poultice 3 times a day for an hour at a time until he was really well. Like King Hezekiah in the Bible, the poultice was the right solution in this case.
    10. Essential Oils - There is a reason the Bible speaks so highly of the use of essential oils in healing the body! They are amazing! Within a month of our family introducing these, the doctor started weaning us off our expensive herbal supplements. Essential oils were more affordable. The library books we read documented them as anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic. They cross the blood/brain barrier in about 3 seconds, after being topically applied. The research we read said bacteria are unable to develop resistance to essential oils either. No super-bugs fostered here. We simply educated ourselves on the appropriate use of the oils through books and the internet and then tried them for ourselves to see if what we were reading about was actually true. We use essential oils topically on our body and dilute them in water to clean our home.
    11. Baths - There is such a thing as a healing bath. We've used salt baths, magnesium baths, epsom salt baths, bicarb-soda baths, apple cider vinegar baths and paprika baths, to name a few, to facilitate the body to heal a variety of illnesses and de-stress. We used baths to heat the body up to induce fever and we've used them to cool the body down when it is too hot. Do your own homework on this ancient remedy.
    12. Massage - Massage is a wonderful way to de-stress, soothe sore or inflamed muscles and help the body's lymphatic drainage or even constipation. We use either organic olive oil, almond oil or coconut oil as a lubricant. Be wise here though. There is not to be even a hint of sexual immorality amongst Christians. Personally, the ideal is for a husband/wife to massage each other and to appropriately and gently massage their own children, widows etc. You can remove oedema / swelling with gentle massage, ease tired muscles and release tension.
    13. Rest - Don't underestimate the importance of resting well. It is wise to rest without the influence of tv, internet, media, fb, and phone from time to time. You can rest outside in the sunshine and fresh air or inside on a bed. Listen to your body and it's needs. Learn to switch off naturally. Remember the sabbath and remember who is LORD of the sabbath.
    14. Exercise - a simple walk in the neighbourhood or local bushland can do you the world of good if your stress or illness comes from sitting around too much, a common problem in our modern desk-laden lifestyles. Get out side and enjoy the world that Yahweh made for us.
    15. Juicing - Technically, our juicing is probably more of a smoothy. Add fruit and or vegetables with a small amount of linseeds or chia seeds and blend in a food processor with about 1 -2 litres of clean, filtered water. or milk or a small amount of yoghurt. This way you will consume both the fibre and the nutrients in a drink. The chia and linseeds thicken the drink. Perfect for those who are ill who need thickened fluids as well, due to an in-sufficient swallow.
    16. Hygiene and Sanitation - Don't underestimate the importance of a clean house and body and your sewerage under ground. The Bible warns against mould, mildew and poor sanitation for good reason. Our dust, dust mite, cockroaches and mould allergies are kept under control by not allowing these things to get out of hand in our home. Use natural alternatives where you can. Regular cleaning will remove many of these problems. We don’t use chemicals within the home. Their odours irritate our airways. We use warm soapy water, bicarb and vinegar for cleaning as well as essential oils and microfibre cloths and a good vacuum cleaner. Our household uses eco-friendly soaps, that have no artificial perfumes and are suitable for our worm farm sewerage treatment system.
    17. Meditation - We are told over and over to meditate on the Word of God. 'Meditate' means to ponder or think deeply, or mull over in your mind. Ask the LORD God for a Bible verse each day to ponder and meditate on. It will bless you. 
    18. Solitude vs Crowds - Don't underestimate the importance of having some 'space' to yourself. Jesus often went up on a mountain top to pray alone. He also spent a lot of time with crowds, teaching them and showing them the way to live a holy life. Learn to keep instep with the Holy Spirit.
    19. Don't Reject the Miraculous - Over and over we are told in the OT and NT that the LORD God performed works of wonders and miracles for his people. Never rule that out, for yourself or your loved ones. Always have hope that God will intervene. Remember His goodness. Remember His kindness. His compassion is new every morning. Great Is His faithfulness. It's not over till it's over. Remember that. 
    20. Healthy Relationships - Surround yourself with healthy relationships. Those people who will love you with the same love that Jesus Christ gave, who will gently speak the truth to you in love, even when it is uncomfortable for both of you. Stay humble. Ask the LORD God if what others are speaking over you is His truth. Always take other's concerns or accusations to Him for wise counsel and discernment. 
    21. Laugh -  God has a vary good, sense of clean humour. He is supreme in all things. Ask Him to show it to you. It’s worth it. :)
    22. Always forgive. If your christian brother or sister sins against you, go to him, privately in person if feasible. Don’t let the sun go down on your anger. Restore relationships as far as it is possible for you, live at peace with one another. The LORD God gives us a sunset every night to remind us, to forgive our neighbours and loved ones. But you have to actually, practically put it into action and do it. Make every effort to say 'sorry' when you have wronged someone. Every effort. Sorry is the most valuable word in the English language. It's root is love. Love covers a multitude of sins. "Father, forgive us our debts as we forgive those who trespass against us," else your Heavenly Father will not forgive you.  - Jesus.

    “My son, if you have put up security for your neighbour, if you have struck hands in pledge with a stranger, if you have been trapped by the words of your lips, ensnared by the words of your mouth, then do this my son, to free yourself, for you have fallen into your neighbour’s hands: go, humble yourself, and press your plea with your neighbour. Allow no sleep to your eyes or slumber to your eyelids. Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler.” Proverbs 6:1-5
    Who do you say that I am?   
    You are the messiah, the son of the living God, who came as a baby, in the flesh, to live a holy life before dying for us, to take away the sins of the world. On the third day, he rose to new life. His name is Jesus Christ and we are believing in Him only for our salvation. 
    I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. Whatever is bound in heaven will be bound on earth and whatever is loosed in heaven will be loosed on earth. Behold, I have given you the keys of the kingdom. When I open a door, no man can shut it!  I bind up the strongman. See I am returning quickly and my reward is with me. - Jesus.
    We are no longer slaves to fear! We are ultimately children of the Living God.  Our Sovereign King. Our Priest. Our Prophet. We worship and obey Him only. We don't bow to idolatry. The demonic is defeated. To God be the Glory, great things He has done!

    10 Tips for Successful Homeschooling

    So you’re considering homeschooling and wondering where to begin? Or maybe you’re just not happy with the way things are going in your current homeschool? Here are 10 tips to help your homeschool be a success.

    But first, let me define ‘success’. It may not be what you think. You see, success in Yahweh’s eyes is a totally different concept to what we as humans sometimes like to think it is. I learned this lesson the hard way, so let me encourage you to not make the same mistake.There’s no point reaching the highest pinnacles of success in life if we loose our soul along the way. Where is the gain in that? Let me put it another way. What’s the point of being the best in the whole world at your chosen career, if you lose the very essence of who you were created to be, along the way? As humans, we were created to worship God and serve him forever. I’ve learned that when we do THAT, everything else falls into place and I have perfect peace.

    For we are God's masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Eph 2:10

    Each and everyone of us is uniquely created by Yahweh for a own special purpose on this earth. As mothers it is vitally important that we remember that. Some of our children were born natural lawyers, doctors and diplomats. Some of our children are naturally gifted carpenters, bakers, cleaners, artisans and farmers. ALL roles are of equal value. ALL roles are needed in a healthy society. ALL wholesome roles are honoured by God. (1 Cor 12; Eph 4) 

    When we nurture our children to worship God and serve him with the giftings that He has put in them, then we can not help but be successful in our homeschooling. Our children will be successful for they will be doing what they were created to do. That is where they will find fulfilment in life. Having said that, below are 10 practical tips to help you along the way.

    1. Focus on the majors and the minors will naturally fall into place. In all the crazy busyness of homeschooling, don’t forget to ‘meditate on the law of God day and night’. For me, that means day and night, I take time out to read my bible, pray and seek God’s face. Jesus said “But seek first God’s kingdom and God’s righteousness, and all these things [food clothing, provision] will be given to you as well.” Matt 6:33
    2. Roster in solitude and time alone with hubby. Having your children home 24/7 means you will need to be disciplined in putting time aside where you can just be alone and think and ponder and just be still without interruption and the constant demands of family life. It won’t naturally happen. Sometimes stress can come from not having time alone. The same can be said for our children. Allow them that space. Love them like you would like to be loved. Strong families need strong marriages. http://www.gotquestions.org/Bible-solitude.html
    3. Have a flexible weekly routine. A flexible routine provides stability in the home. Develop a habit of regular eating times, schooling times, chore times, leisure times and rest times. Give each child a written roster to work towards. They will like that. They need clear expectations.  It gives them a sense of achievement when they can fulfil it’s demands. Children are also more relaxed when they know what is coming next. They don’t like big changes all the time. Make sure if you need to make big changes, that where possible, they are introduced slowly, with plenty of warning. The Lord God gave us all a routine when he set the times and seasons in place, when he named the days and weeks and gave them all a different purpose.
    4. Include chores and daily life skills in your curriculum. Having once dated a man who didn’t know the first thing about cooking and cleaning when he first moved out of home, let me remind you that ALL people need to know the basics of good hygiene, food preparation and safe travel. Children are much more likely to flourish in life if they are confident in the basics when they first move out of home. 
    5. Repetition is important. A skill is mastered when you do a lot of it. A skill becomes intuitive when you have performed it so often, that the knowledge has been transferred from short-term memory into long-term memory. This principle applies to reading, writing and arithmetic as much as it does to cleaning a toilet, catching public transport and cooking nutritious food. When my children become discouraged because they FEEL like they have failed, I simply remind them, that the way you become good at something is to do a LOT of it. Practice, practice, practice.
    6. Have a healthy homeschool support network. Surround yourself with other experienced homeschool mums who will build you up. The value of this is inestimable.  They will be the ones to give you wisdom and encouragement when life looks hopeless. They will be the ones to share this journey with you. As human beings we were designed to live in community. Choose your friends wisely, for you will become like the people you hang around with. “He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm” Proverbs 13:20 Practically speaking, this may not always be easy. The first year we homeschooled we were very isolated because we simply didn’t know any other homeschoolers. That was very hard. My advice these days is to look on fb and the web, to find homeschool groups within your community. Tag along to some of their events and see how things go from there.
    7. Test are important. Don’t leave these out, but at the same time, don’t over do it either. Children like the success of passing a test. It gives them a sense of achievement. They also sometimes need the motivation of knowing there is testing to prevent them becoming blasé. The Lord God tests us to see what is in our hearts and to strengthen our weaknesses. Without test, you will not know how your children are performing and what their strengths and weaknesses are. Explain to your children that the purpose of testing is to determine what skills they have mastered and what skills still need more practice. It has nothing to do with their integral value and worth as a person. http://www.gotquestions.org/why-does-God-test-us.html
    8. Don’t forget to reward and praise. As humans we are designed to need rewards and encouragement. It brings us joy. I am not talking about overindulgence here, but appropriate, healthy rewards for appropriate healthy behaviour. Reward good character most of all. Remember, you are teaching your children what to value the most, when you reward them. Practically speaking rewards need to be individual and matched to the level of achievement for that particular child. If it was easy for the child, then give a simple reward. If it was more akin to climbing Mount Everest, them give a big reward.   Look at the child’s currency to see what motivates them. What feels like a reward to one child may feel like a punishment to another. You will only determine this by listening to  their heart. Some children like to be rewarded with ipad time, some with gifts, some with food, some with special events, some with playdates, some with money. Rewards don’t have to be expensive. It doesn’t have to be the same thing all the time. It can be as simple as a sticker in their book for a job well done. 
    9. Buy bulk non-perishables. This may seem like an unusual homeschool tip but I can assure you this will save you a lot of time and energy, not to mention money. Homeschooling does take extra time, but I have found along with many other homeschoolers that this time can be redeemed back through bulk buying. The less you need to go to the shops the simpler life is. The more stocked a pantry is, the simpler it is to prepare quick nourishing meals and avoid the temptation of fast-food.
    10. Relax! Let me say it again, just relax. Although the thought of homeschooling can be completely overwhelming, don’t stress. Start with the basics - reading, writing and arithmetic. Add other subjects in as you feel comfortable. Start with just a few hours a day, especially for young children. Remember that young children NEED a lot of play based learning. They NEED to have unstructured learning. They NEED to have lots of art and craft and messy play. They NEED lots of role-based play and dress-ups.  They NEED nature based learning. Remember that boys LOVE to move and run and jump and climb. Remember girls LOVE to sit and colour-in and be still. The Lord God has made girls and boys differently, with different learning styles and milestones at different ages. Relax.

    Feast of Tabernacles - A Christian Feast

    It's October 13, 2019 and tonight at sunset, the Feast of Tabernacles will start in God's calendar - The Mazzaroth. Our focus will be on what Jesus Christ gave up to save us. He broke every rule in the book to rescue us and they crucified him for it. He took on the form of a babe, the very likeness of human form, humbled himself and became totally helpless. Remember that when you see a tiny, helpless, baby. 

    Australia has passed laws that give the unborn no protection. None at all. Remember that. Babies can be legally aborted up until the day of birth and left to die and this is now legal in QLD. 200 babies were left to die after botched abortion in QLD this past year. 200. This weekend we mark the 1 year anniversary of that law. Yet Jesus came as a helpless babe to a young woman. You think He's okay with this? 

    Defend the weak. 
    Defend the oppressed. 
    Defend the defenceless. 
    Rescue those being led away to death.
    Uphold the weightier matters of the Law - Justice, Mercy and Faith He commands. 
    All life is sacred. 
    He sees the aborted babies. 
    The unnamed. Unwanted. Uncherished.
    But they are not invisible to HIm.
    He calls them Named. 
    He calls them Wanted. 
    He calls them Cherished.

    So as I remember Jesus's birth this Feast of Tabernacles, in the context of horrific abortion laws in QLd Australia, I ask that we continue to fight for the unborn. 

    You see the birth of Jesus reminds me that God thought I was important enough to fight for. Very few people fight for the ordinary people in this world. But Jesus - He fought for me. That makes me weep. That He cared that much for me.

    Born in a stall, into an unimportant family, in an unimportant town, his actual birth date is forgotten. He knew none of this world’s prestige or wealth, only scandal and rejection. The stars announced his birth, but the majority missed that - the bright lights of the city got in the way. The angels sang of his birth, but only a few country shepherds saw that and the very important don’t typically listen to simple country folk. They were too busy;  They missed it. They wanted a ‘Somebody’ and Jesus was a ‘Nobody’ in their eyes.

    From his birth, the kings and rulers of the earth wanted Him dead. They hated his goodness - it threatened their current way of life. They hated His truthfulness. It made them deeply ashamed. In the end they violently murdered Him thinking it would quieten their consciences. After all, He was the ultimate whistleblower about all that was ugly and evil in this world. He was love personified.

    If you’ve ever been hated for doing the right thing. Or hated for speaking the truth in love, then you know the courage that requires. If you’ve ever had questionable parentage, been over looked, considered unimportant, not worth listening to, had your birthday forgotten, had your party forgotten, had your identity stolen or had your life declared worthless, then you know what Jesus went through. It takes infinite courage to continually do what is right in the face of massive opposition and difficulty. Yet He did it - proving his deity. 

    But, you see, you can’t kill God. That would be an oxymoron. You can try, but innocent blood always cries out from the land, demanding justice.

    And so, God in his justice, resurrected Jesus Christ, from the dead by the power of his Holy Spirit. Thousands saw his resurrected body. And now over 2000 years or so later, thousands of ordinary folk, still know that Jesus is God and remember his birth. It doesn't really matter whether you remember it in December or October or every single day of the year. Just know that He's God and He gave up everything for your salvation.

    “If you confess with your mouth, Jesus is God and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, then you will be saved.” The Bible (Romans 10:9).

    That’s why I worship Him.  
    The aborted babies are not invisible to Him.
    Mothers are not invisible to Him either.
    So we Feast on Justice, Mercy and Faith.
