The essential Christian truths

 Personal depression is also related to having a God shaped vacuum in our own life, and from deviating from God, his words in the Bible, God’s will and plan for our life too. 
 
– God is the center of the Universe, and not any man, mankind. Man’s sin includes falsely still doing his own thing, following after mere men instead of God.
– The Bible is the word of God, is God’s complete truth, it is all inspired, written by God himself, and it is still teaches us filly God’s truths that we must know, follow, practice today as well.
– Jesus is God and he undeniably loves each one of us that he died for our sins so we can accept his forgiveness and be with him in Heaven. Everyone can be solely saved by Jesus Christ alone, Jews included, and there is no other way a person can be saved from hell.
– The Holy Spirit is  a person, the sprit of Jesus Christ, and whether some admit it or not, like it or not his gifts are all in operation today including the gift of prophecy, speaking in tongues, interpretation of tongues, healing, deliverance as well. The Holy sprit is given to us to help each one of us personal walk in reality the Christian life.
– God does and can speak to us also outside of the Bible as well, he through His son Jesus, the Holy Spirit leads and guides us personally too, and we all can and must learn how to listen to, hear  his voice.
– Prayer is an essential ongoing aspect of God’s will for each one of us, we must give God permission to act here on earth and in our life, and we all must personally seek, follow, get to now  know his ongoing  will for each one us as well.
– A daily quite time, Biblical devotions and prayer is a must for every person.
– We have a responsibility to share the good news with others, and  to look after our own family, as well as to help the poor and needy persons as well.
– There’s only one place we all can be saved, and that is  here on earth for  after death  it is too late for everyone to be saved.
– All sin is still an affront against God and each sin must be daily, continually admitted, repented, turned from  as well, including cheating, lying, stealing, adultery, fornication, alcoholism, drunkenness, divorce, abusing ourselves and others too.
– God is not mocked, in spite of His grace of forgiveness, next what a person continues to willfully, deliberately sow, do wrong as well, they next will also reap here on earth and elsewhere.
– Jesus Christ alone is Still the head of the Church and not any man, pastor, elder, priests, apostle, prophet.

How many real Christians now do what Jesus said..

 
 I often see on search engines remarks as  to how many Christians practice abortion,  divorce, adultery, have premarital sex, or take drugs, drink wine or alcohol, or  whatever?
.
Many  still do not understand that there is a real difference now between a real born again Christian  and merely a false, lip service professing Christian ..
 .
Being born into a Christian family, being even baptized with water in a church, becoming a member of a church, giving money to the church, reading the Bible, praying , or  attending a Christian Church, or whatever does not make you a Christian still too
 .
and there is no such thing as a little but pregnant, and the same applies to being a Christian, for you are either a real Christian, or your are not, you are merely a pretender, imposter or what ever to…
 
 .

 In reality less than 30 percent of persons who go to a Christian churches are actual genuine, born again, real Christians still these days too.

 .
(John 3:5 KJV)  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.6  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7   Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 8  The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
(1 Cor 6:9 KJV)  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10  Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11   And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God
 
 
and  as per  does God answer prayers of non-Christian, but WELL FIRSTLY GOD DOESN’T EVEN ANSWER ALL THE PRAYERS OF THE CHRISTIANS NOW , even because one’s  prayers being answered are often conditional , even as to our own genuine repentance,, admitting, renouncing, confessing our sins, and as to how you still  do treat God, the Bible the Holy Spirit,  others, your spouse too…
 
and so is the prophetic outcome for the Nation’s and personal economy, For God blesses the righteous and not the still wicked persons.
 
(Gen 18:23 KJV)  And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? 24   Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein? 25  That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
(1 Ki 8:32 KJV)  Then hear thou in heaven, and do, and judge thy servants, condemning the wicked, to bring his way upon his head; and justifying the righteous, to give him according to his righteousness.
(2 Chr 6:23 KJV)  Then hear thou from heaven, and do, and judge thy servants, by requiting the wicked, by recompensing his way upon his own head; and by justifying the righteous, by giving him according to his righteousness.
(Job 17:9 KJV)  The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.
(Psa 1:5 KJV)  Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
(Psa 1:6 KJV)  For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
(Psa 5:12 KJV)  For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
(Psa 7:11 KJV)  God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
(Psa 11:5 KJV)  The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
(Psa 11:7 KJV)  For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.
(Psa 14:5 KJV)  There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.
(Psa 34:15 KJV)  The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
(Psa 34:17 KJV)  The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
(Psa 34:19 KJV)  Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
(Psa 34:21 KJV)  Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
(Psa 37:17 KJV)  For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
(Psa 37:25 KJV)  I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
(Psa 37:29 KJV)  The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
(Psa 37:30 KJV)  The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.
(Psa 37:39 KJV)  But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.
(Psa 55:22 KJV)  Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
(Psa 58:10 KJV)  The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
(Psa 58:11 KJV)  So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.
(Psa 69:28 KJV)  Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.
(Psa 118:15 KJV)  The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
(Psa 125:3 KJV)  For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.
(Prov 2:20 KJV)  That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.
(Prov 10:3 KJV)  The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked.
(Prov 10:16 KJV)  The labour of the righteous tendeth to life: the fruit of the wicked to sin.
(Prov 10:25 KJV)  As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.
(Prov 10:28 KJV)  The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
(Prov 10:30 KJV)  The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.
(Prov 11:8 KJV)  The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.
(Prov 11:21 KJV)  Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
(Prov 11:23 KJV)  The desire of the righteous is only good: but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.
(Prov 11:28 KJV)  He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.
(Prov 11:31 KJV)  Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.
(Prov 12:3 KJV)  A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.

(Prov 13:9 KJV)  The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.
(Prov 13:21 KJV)  Evil pursueth sinners: but to the righteous good shall be repayed.
(Prov 13:25 KJV)  The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want.
(Prov 14:9 KJV)  Fools make a mock at sin:
(Prov 14:19 KJV)  The evil bow before the good; and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.
(Prov 14:32 KJV)  The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death.
(Prov 15:6 KJV)  In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.
(Prov 18:10 KJV)  The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
(Prov 21:12 KJV)  The righteous man wisely considereth the house of the wicked: but God overthroweth the wicked for their wickedness.
(Isa 3:10 KJV)  Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.
(Ezek 18:20 KJV)  The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
(Ezek 18:24 KJV)  But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.
(Ezek 21:4 KJV)  Seeing then that I will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked, therefore shall my sword go forth out of his sheath against all flesh from the south to the north:
(Ezek 33:18 KJV)  When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.
.
But God still uses sinners, even  for prophets, God saves all repentant sinners but as to can you live in sin and be anointed by Holy Sprit more likely you will be filled with an evil sprit, be demon possessed instead..
 
 
 Living by FAITH in God..
.
(1 Tim 6:17 KJV)  Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
(1 Tim 6:18 KJV)  That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;
(1 Tim 6:19 KJV)  Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
(Rom 1:17 KJV)  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
(Gal 3:11 KJV)  But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
(Heb 10:38 KJV)  Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
 .
I know for absolute certainty certain events happened solely cause I lived by faith in God.
 .
When my daughter Marlene was born I had  bought a nice tape player and I used to play Bible versed songs in her room. When my daughter was born she next shortly was diagnosed as being hydrocephalic, a serious medical condition that seriously threatened HER LIFE, BUT BEFORE SHE WAS TO BE OPERATED ON SHE WAS HEALED, AS DOCTORS HAD SAID, HEALED HERSELF Miraculously.. http://pbulow.tripod.com/healing.html  After she had been healed God had said to me he had let her live cause I had put my faith in God and had put the tape player that played Christian songs  in her room..
 .
When I was seriously ill and need major treatment, heart operation God had said to me specially ” I had let you live cause you had served me” and I had often been glad as a result I had served the Lord.
 .
I pray when I need finances, cause my bank accounts were always low, caused said he to me he did not keep his money in the bank, and that I was to choose the least likely person to give to me and he would have that person donate on his own, willingly money to me and do it next happened that way too.
 .
Now many pastors had lied to me when they said they too lived by faith, while they asked people for money, had a fixed salary, had an additional expense account.. they were lying in these matters.. their faith in God is not living by faith in his will, his provisions but even rather falsely demanding God to meet all their needs, wants, desires. lusts.. any way.

“HOW TO ASCERTAIN THE WILL OF GOD
.
1. I seek at the beginning to get my heart into such a state that it has no will of its own in regard to a given matter. Nine-tenths of the trouble with people generally is just here. Nine-tenths of the difficulties are overcome when our hearts are ready to do the LORD’s will, whatever it may be. When one is truly in this state, it is usually but a little way to the knowledge of what His will is.
.

2. Having done this, I do not leave the result to feeling or simple impression. If so, I make myself liable to great delusions.

3. I seek the Will of the Spirit of God through, or in connection with, the Word of God. The Spirit and the Word must be combined. If I look to the Spirit alone without the Word, I lay myself open to great delusions also. If the Holy Ghost guides us at all, He will do it according to the Scriptures and never contrary to them.”

Missing the point!

 
I read an interesting search question, “Specifically what sins of ours did Christ die for on the Cross?”
 
Answer: All of them, No sin  is acceptable to God.. not one.
 
Next I am alone in this, many people are still really Surprised as to how many crooked people there still are these days even within the professing Christian Churches and why is that?  I too have often been surprised as to the reasons some persons give for going to a church, it had nothing firstly to do with humble repentance, worshipping and serving God, rather it was them falsely still following their worldly lust, a place to find a baby sitter, a soul mate or a spouse, a place to make business contact, a place to get friends, etc., I have also always found it so strange that the churches in Canada tend to be so crooked.. too often mere social or cultural clubs and not rather God’s house.. so for some the Churches seem  to be still too often more like a den of vipers too often.. https://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/11/12/as-to-why-some-have-left-their-church/ 
 
(Isa 56:1 KJV)   Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. 2  Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil. 3  Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree. 4  For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant; 5  Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off. 6  Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; 7  Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.
 
(Mark 11:17 KJV)  And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
 
(Josh 22:16 KJV)  Thus saith the whole congregation of the LORD, What trespass is this that ye have committed against the God of Israel, to turn away this day from following the LORD, in that ye have builded you an altar, that ye might rebel this day against the LORD?
 
(Judg 9:16 KJV)  Now therefore, if ye have done truly and sincerely, in that ye have made Abimelech king, and if ye have dealt well with Jerubbaal and his house, and have done unto him according to the deserving of his hands;
 
(1 Ki 18:18 KJV) in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.
 
(Jer 44:8 KJV)  In that ye provoke me unto wrath with the works of your hands, burning incense unto other gods in the land of Egypt, whither ye be gone to dwell, that ye might cut yourselves off, and that ye might be a curse and a reproach among all the nations of the earth?
 
(Ezek 44:7 KJV)  In that ye have brought into my sanctuary strangers, uncircumcised in heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in my sanctuary, to pollute it, even my house, when ye offer my bread, the fat and the blood, and they have broken my covenant because of all your abominations.
 
(Mal 1:7 KJV)  Ye offer polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say, The table of the LORD is contemptible.
 
(Heb 6:10 KJV)  For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have showed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
 
(Mat 18:1 KJV)  At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
 
(Mat 18:4 KJV)  Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
 
Yes I too have often met unreal Christians still  who wrongfully, unacceptably  use their religion as a false tool to try to be superior over others, to try to enslave, dominate, bully or oppress others.. You can note this on such too typical bad professing Christian  sites such as “Born again Christians”.. who also so state that “we do not accept any Charismatic Christians”.. even though Charismatic, Pentecostal  Christians now are also born again Christians. These born again  still sound like the bad Ku Klux Klan and not the  genuine, real born again Christians.
 
(Mat 7:16 KJV)  Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19  Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
24  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26  And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
 
(Gal 5:22 KJV)  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,23   Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
 
(Gal 5:24 KJV)  And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25   If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
 
(Gal 5:26 KJV)  Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
 
(Gal 6:1 KJV)  Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
 
 Take the time to read all of  the pages here, it will help you or someone else. Life requires our personal positive continual adaptation to the ongoing, changing events that surround our life.

McCain to Leno: ‘I couldn’t be happier with Sarah Palin’

McCain to Leno: ‘I couldn’t be happier with Sarah Palin’   November 12, 2008  LOS ANGELES — In his first interview since conceding the election, John McCain said Tuesday that Sarah Palin did not damage his presidential bid, and he dismissed anonymous criticism aimed at her. ”I’m so proud of her, and I’m very grateful she agreed to run with me. She inspired people. She still does,” McCain told Jay Leno during a ”Tonight Show” Tuesday night. ”I couldn’t be happier with Sarah Palin.” Asked by Leno about griping about Palin from unidentified McCain operatives, he said, ”These things happen in campaigns. “I think I have at least a thousand, quote, top advisers,” he scoffed. Asked if Palin had drifted off message during the campaign, he responded, ”Did you expect mavericks to stay on message?” Meanwhile, in a series of national interviews Tuesday, Palin talked about the future and indirectly put her name in play as a possible future presidential candidate.  When Mr. Leno asked Mr. McCain about a run in 2012, when he would be 76, he responded: “I wouldn’t think so, my friend. It’s been a great experience, and we’re going to have another generation of leaders, and I’ll hope I can continue to contribute.” AP  http://www.suntimes.com/news/politics/mccain/1274594,CST-NWS-mccain12.article
 
False Smears. In addition to mounting criticism about pricey wardrobe purchases for her during the race, a recent Fox News Channel report cited unnamed campaign sources saying Palin did not know Africa was a continent and could not name the three countries that had signed the North American Free Trade Agreement. Palin has dismissed such criticism as false smears planted by “jerks” too cowardly to speak publicly. William McGurn, a former speech writer for President George W. Bush and editorialist for the Wall Street Journal, urged McCain in a newspaper column on Tuesday to condemn the attacks on Palin. Asked about them by Leno, McCain suggested such criticism amounted to sour grapes from people claiming to be campaign insiders. http://www.reuters.com/article/newsOne/idUSTRE4AB0MR20081112

John McCain’s former campaign manager Terry Nelson says that if Sarah Palin plans to run for president, she should follow Barack Obama’s example and seize on her momentum. Nelsons suggests she take a shot at the presidency in 2012.  “Republicans are very interested in her, and some very excited by her,” Nelson told The Daily Beast. “I’d say strike when the iron is hot.” Nelson, who was the political director of the Bush-Cheney reelection campaign in 2004, served as McCain’s campaign manager until he was forced to resign in a staff shakeup last summer. While he says he is not (yet) plotting Palin’s ascension, he can see a clear path for her to take the Republican nomination in 2012.

 Now why will she Sarah Plain not go away to the dismay of the too often ungodly liberals, democrats  and why is it that she is still so popular?

Remember 49 percent of the Americans voted for John McCain .. and to a lot of Christians Sarah Plain still represents  decent leadership..

as to why some have left their Church

  

I have written about this before, if you do not like your church, merely start your own church, most churches historically are splinter, break away groups http://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/10/16/who-founded-the-church/
 
There are many reasons people still do give for quitting, leaving their church, reasons  even such as ,
 
1: There are too many hypocrites in the church
2: all they want is my money
3: I do not support a one man ministry
4: they only practice a small portion of the Bible, they pick and choose what they like,
5: it is just a cultural, or a social club
6: they kicked me out cause I was poor
7 The Church was imperfect and it reminded me I was imperfect
8 They did not recognize my spiritual gifts or ministry
9 God told me to establish my own church
 
Sadly most Christians still really do not know God, Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit, and the Bible  personally too.. less than 5 percent of Christians read their Bible 5 minutes a day, so they talk about things they really do not know, that they have not experienced, and yes the Holy Ghost especially.. undeniably too,  but they still love to judge the others but why?Their ignorance of the Bible is alone not the issue, most Christians, church leaders  also wrongfully personally do pick and choose what parts of the Bible they will practice, and which one they will not. All professing Christians daily need to practice what they know, even the ten commandments. Too many wolves in sheep clothing in the churches today We live in an epidemic of adultery fornication divorce and abortion in the church. – the reason we live in such an epidemic in the church is that Christians of every stripe. Evangelicals, Fundamentalists, Pentecostals, and Charismatic, have no foundation of the Holy Spirit in their life. Most believers that I have met have never once read the bible cover to cover. They have come to believe that if they mumble a few words about accepting Christ in their heart, that it is now all good, that they have passed from death unto life, and so they do not have to worry anymore about such mundane things as their having to obey the Words and Commandments of Jesus Christ and the Apostles. Nothing could be father from the truth, disobedience and rebellion no matter where when or what you may have mumbled at some point of your life – brings forth eternal death in your soul. (Mat 7:13 KJV) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. 15
 
It is very ironic that I have often said that if you really want to know how spiritual someone is, do first see how they do in regard their emphasis on the  importance of money, for their related greed for it will show their true spiritual values, or rather the lack of it.But if you have not been baptized with the Holy Spirit, and clearly admit you do not speak in tongues, and that you do not have the gift of healing, anointed gifts, so how  can you really honestly judge any of the others by comparisons, even by the discerning gift of the Holy Spirit..
 
> I LEFT THE TONGUES MOVEMENT BECAUSE OF:

>Miracles (divine intervention suspending natural law) have ceased (Zech 13:1-4). God is still all-powerful, but he is today working providentially. The miracles of the New Testament were temporary, confirming Jesus was the Christ, and the apostles were his messengers (John 3:2; Acts 1:8). When the New Testament revelation was completed (1 Cor 13:8-10), miracles ceased (Mark 16:19-20; Heb.2:3-4). The New Testament is complete (Jude 3, John 16:13). The word is what we need to guide us (2 Tim 3:160.

>As a Pentecostal, I never saw a miracle like the lame or blind healed or the dead raised. They came unhealed and left unhealed. One of the greatest “miracles” of Pentecostalism was that I did not have the eyes to see the truth (2 Thess 2:9-12), but let the power of suggestion and emotions blind me.

You went to the wrong church, for  I have seen miracles the last 50 decades, real ones and often, and if you humbly seek God and not do your own thing you will find him here on earth, he is all around all of us too.. http://afollowerofchrist.multiply.com/ 

A true Christian believers set of beliefs, doctrines is based on what the Holy Spirit himself who also is God himself now teaches you and me and his teachings they will not contradict the Bible.. and it is not rather based solely on what an angel or other men may teach us too. But of course if any others because they really still do not know God and/or because they are doing “your own thing”, following their own will, and/or have not died to Jesus Christ, they thus are not open to the Holy Spirit himself to talk with them thus they really should find out why too! otherwise they will mostly allow the false men, false angels to deceive themselves instead.. So how are they dealing with Jesus Christ firstly.. is he personally rightfully their Lord, Savior, or are they just playing a religious game? so I like to note that the type of response to my posts is also still reflective of the true spiritual nature of all of the posters as well and I can easily see those who have found the truth, and those who are still seeking for it or have wrongfully denied it..
 
Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, Dispensationalists too, and many others they also are not Christians- certainly thus not anointed by the Holy Sprit, and not by along shot.. for they had missed out as to who Jesus Christ the Messiah was, and not just who who the Holy Spirit is.. so how can they even be anointed ones.. Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, Dispensationalists, others have   a religion yes, but the true religion? certainly not.
 
Human reason logic, is corrupt and limited.. learning how to now hear God talking to you firstly is what everyone should learn.. I have absolutely no doubt the devil talks to me, but so do God, the Holy sprit and Jesus separately as well too.. for decades now too.

The Holy Spirit: Power from on High Power is also a  symbol of the person  of Holy Spirit  (Acts 1:8 KJV)  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. (Acts 10:38 KJV)  How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
 
Revelation 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 
 

And the answers to the question as to why some have left the church is not more important then as to why some persons have next left their Faith altogether. In my lifetime 50 percent of once loudly professing Christians, like the Apostle Judas left the faith altogether, basically cause God did not give them what they had wanted, hoped, expected initially..  so they no longer had any use  for God..  for they had falsely used   religion  as a mere   tool to advance themselves, or to prosper, or whatever.. and when they did not get what they wanted.. they gave it up on their religion too easily… and generally tend to blame  others for doing so in the process too 

 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.

(Rom 8:7 KJV) Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
(1 Cor 3:1 KJV) And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
(1 Cor 3:3 KJV) For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
(1 Cor 3:4 KJV) For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?
Mind you Jesus said by their fruits you tell what they are like.. which include their love, joy, peace, gentleness, meekness, patience’s, faith.. since gifts operating in faith, the amount you have or the lack thereof.. 

My real often reality is that even most so called Christians today when the see a miracle, they try to deny it, explain it away.. but they did that also in Jesus time now too.. so what else is new?

If you read the Book of acts then you did notice that the emphasis on the Holy Spirit, and distributing money, food to the local poor people was part of the reason the churches next were so popular and growing. While in contrast today many Churches. pastors, members, adherents, are selfish cheapskates. True pastors, elders, ministers would firstly daily read their Bible for one hour and pray daily for others. And what people need firstly is getting the book of acts Pentecostal experiences.. and they will naturally next care for the poor people, act like real anointed Christians.

I admit there are much too many even crooked pastors around these days for my liking, and in my own witness, experiences the last 4 decades too.. MONEY WAS THE SECOND REASON often that CHRISTIAN  FIGHTS have  ESCALATED.. MONEY, HOW IT WAS BEING COLLECTED AND SPENT BECAME AN ISSUE TOO http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/05/28/secret-tithing/

“The ignorance of the Bible and the works of the Holy Spirit have placed many people, churches, radio and television ministries, and itinerant ministries in jeopardy for their very existence because they are so desperate for success, numbers and money that they are ready to chase after any experience or anybody whom they think will attract people to them. There are many people today who do not know their Scriptures and the penalties that come from straying away from them. They are like the Sadducees of whom Jesus said, “You are wrong, because you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God” (Matt. 22: 29; Mk. 12: 24).” 

(Gal 6:7 KJV) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Actually the degree of negative personal consequences also are determined as to how quickly you on your own had repented of your major sins, or did Gold almost have to force you into confession of your sins as he did to King David And many People would know that already too had they actually read the Bible as they lying often claim they do too.

Where is the power of God that we see in the Old and New testament Prophets, in Christ and in the Apostles? And what are we doing that is now different in the Church from that I read of in the book of Acts in the Bible? Why do we not see this power.. Is it’s God’s fault or ours rather still?

 Too Many Christians are doing their own thing, trying to live a life without Jesus, without even taking to him now often too.. Jesus himself hath said without me you can do nothing.. nothing!!! we all should stop hero worshipping mere men and start rather to worshipping God alone.

The world is seeking scientists or money. The Church is seeking scholars. But God is seeking his true servant, true believers, true prophets. Most people even professing Christians have not experienced God goodness, power, manifestation, Holy Spirit, His Word too, cause they are too busy still doing their own thing even.
 
(Luke 14:26 KJV)  If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
 
(Luke 14:33 KJV)  So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
  
 

 Just like today in social aid, the people receiving social  aid they now cannot own major tangible property, real estate, so any of   the people, priests  receiving the old testament tithes they also could not own any major tangible, real estate  properties.. but today the false priest, pastors who are demanding on receiving tithes they falsely also do want to still own a home… to enjoy the monetary rewards of both.. they are still equivalent of welfare cheats!!!!

 

 

(Acts 1:8 KJV)  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
(Acts 10:38 KJV)  How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

The consistent, ongoing Symbols of the Holy Spirit In the Bible

 
The Holy Spirit: Power from on High
 
Power is also a  symbol of the person  of Holy Spirit  (Acts 1:8 KJV)  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. (Acts 10:38 KJV)  How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
 
The consistent, ongoing Symbols of the Holy Spirit In the Bible  include  Wind, Air, Breathe, fire, water, oil, truth, light, power  as well.
 
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send  in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things  to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. – John 14:26  And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened,  and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him.–Mark 1:10
 
Various symbols are used in the Bible to represent the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ, God now  including a dove, wind, light, oil, and fire and others, where  each symbol emphasizes a different, permanent, aspect, attribute  of the same the person of the Holy Spirit. 

The Dove – The Hebrew word for dove is yohnah and is derived from the word anah, meaning, “to mourn,” showing that the name comes from its characteristic mournful coo. The dove was the preferred bird for sacrifice if only one bird was used, and usually mentioned first when both a dove and a pigeon were required. Doves has been called “the sheep of the bird world” because of their gentle disposition. They are noted for their devotion to their mates.  The dove is thus used as a representation of the holy spirit apparently because of its sympathetic nature, compassion for the human race. Jesus by his Holy Spirit   demonstrated   compassion by healings and miraculous feedings of the multitudes, and by his willingness to give the ultimate sacrifice of his own life for mankind’s salvation.

Oil- Note twenty-third psalm says, “Thou anointest my head with oil.”  Isaiah 11:2, “The spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, 1) the spirit of wisdom and understanding, 2) the spirit of counsel and might, 3) the spirit of knowledge and 4) of the fear of the LORD.” (See also Exodus 31:3.)-

Individuals were anointed for a specific service, the leaders and  Kings were anointed,   Priests were anointed, Psalm 133:1,2. A Prophet was anointed such as  Elijah was told to anoint Elisha as his successor (1 Kings 19:16). Jesus was anointed. “And Moses took the anointing oil and anointed the tabernacle and all that was therein, and sanctified them. . . . And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aaron’s head, and anointed him to sanctify him.” − Leviticus 8:10,12  “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek . . . ” − Isaiah 61:1  These two texts show direct close connection between the holy anointing oil and the work of the holy spirit. 

Oil for healing  “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord” (James 5:14). The word here translated sickness in the next verse is astheneo, and literally means “without strength” and may refer to spiritual depression as well as physical sickness. In verse 15 the word sick is the Greek kamnos and is translated “be wearied” in Hebrews 12:3. http://pbulow.tripod.com/healing.html

Oil for medical treatment: “From the sole of the foot even to the head there is no soundness in it, but wounds, and bruises, and putrefying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment” (Isaiah 1:6). The Good Samaritan “bound his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.” When Jesus  sent out the twelve disciples two by two, among other acts they “cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them” (Mark 6:13).

Oil  used as a moisturizer, Soap and toiletries.  . It was with this balm that a woman ministered unto Jesus in the Pharisee’s house. Jesus said, “My head with oil thou didst not anoint; but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment” (Luke 7:46). Likewise the prophet writes, “Then washed I thee with water; yea, I thoroughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil” (Ezekiel 16:9).

Oil   as fuel, source of light (John 16:13 KJV)  Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you.15  All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall show it unto you.

 
Note the golden lampstand in the holy of the tabernacle (Exodus 35:14). The operation of these lampstands can be seen by comparing Zechariah 4:1-14 with Revelation 11:1,2. In Zechariah the oil for the lampstand’s seven lamps comes from two olive trees, which are identified in Revelation as God’s “two witnesses” (the Old and New Testaments). The seven pipes carrying the oil represent the means of conveying this oil to the lamps, i.e., the seven messengers of Revelation 2 and 3.

The concept of the oil of the Holy Spirit being used for a proper light is also shown in the parable of the wise and foolish virgins (Matthew 25:1-13). There the supply of oil distinguishes the one group from the other. This illustrates how  professing  Christians with a sufficiency of the holy spirit become a part of the  final wedding party with Christ, while those having little or none next do not.   

 
Fire and light are symbols of the Holy spirit again. Fire itself also   signifies  destruction or purging as in the refining of metals. On Pentecost we meet yet another representation of the holy spirit. Along with the sound of a mighty rushing wind “there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them” (Acts 2:3).   (Isa 5:24 KJV)  Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
 
Wind is another common symbol of the work, presence of the Holy Spirit.  The Greek and Hebrew words translated “spirit” (pneuma and ruach) are also translated either “wind” or “breath ” Both the words wind and breath are also used in close conjunction with the Holy Spirit himself, as can be seen from these texts:
 
“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a mighty rushing wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting . . . and they were all filled with the holy spirit.” – Acts 2:1,2,4 “And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the holy spirit.” – John 20:22
 
We find, in the original creative process, that the breath of God was the activating force in giving life to Adam: “The LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7). Likewise it is the spirit that gives life to the true Christian and it is the same spirit that will eventually raise all mankind from the grave and endow them with new life.
 
Thus the distinct aspects of the Holy Spirit are shown by these symbols which picture the functions the holy spirit is to desirably  play in each of our lives:
 
 AND YET WHILE MANY EVEN PREACHERS TALK ABOUT THE HOLY SPRIT THEY HAVE YET TO EVEN TRULY EXPERIENCE HIM PERSONALLY. They Have not been born  even FROM above or anointed  by the breathe of Christ’s spirit. So they talk about him as an “it” rather.. and thus show their void reality.

  “The spirit breathes where HE  will, and YOU  hear HIS voice, but YOU DO NOT KNOW  FROM WHERE HE CAME , or where he goes; thus it is so with every one who has been born of the spirit” (John 3:8 ).

 
Not everyone next has yet been born from above too. But Ye Must be born again said Jesus to enter Heaven next.

 and what about you have you recieved the anointing of the Holy Spirit in full yet? Never to late to do so as well.

 http://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/10/16/who-founded-the-church/

 

“Someone once said ” Lord, fill me daily with your Holy Spirit for I am a leaky vessel. Let us come each day afresh to the Lord for that fresh in filling of the Holy Spirit. That our cup my be over flowing. http://peebles.wordpress.com/2007/09/01/psalm-23-v-5-he-anoints-my-head-with-oil-my-cup-over-flows/

Acts 1 V 8 says “ But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” God wants our lives to be power full for him, with joy in the Holy Spirit, for as the Bible says in Romans 14 v 17 ” For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit “.

We should never take for granted, that we are filled with Gods Holy Spirit. Each and every day, would it not be a good idea to ask the Lord, ” Lord please fill me a fresh with your Holy Spirit, anoint my head again a fresh with the Holy Spirit, fill my cup and let it over flow with the peace, power and joy in the Holy Spirit “. Thank you Jesus.

May the Lord anoint you head with oil, may your cup over flow.”

After the elections Sarah Palin?

 Now that the election is over, and Barack Obama has been elected as the 44th President… are we still going to hear about Sarah Palin? Or will her name become obsolete? After elections, the opponent that loses usually disappears within a week after the election… but this is Sarah Palin we’re talking about… 
 

75 percent of evenagelicals still did not vote for Obama, or 49 percent of the voting US population..

“The media is already harping on the fact that 60 percent of voters expressed doubts about Sarah Palin being ready to take over as President should something happen to John McCain.

But if you study the exit polls carefully, there is no evidence that this fact actually influenced the vote.

When people were asked if Palin’s presence on the ticket was an important factor in their decision, 60 percent answered yes, 33 percent no. But of the 60 percent that said yes, 56 percent ended up voting McCain versus 43 percent Obama.

On the other hand, of the 33 percent that said no, only 33 percent voted McCain versus 64 percent Obama.

What does this mean? People who thought Palin’s presence on the ticket was important were more likely to vote McCain by a significant margin. So the media is allowing their bias to influence the interpretation of the data.

You can look even closer than that. Palin was picked specifically to influence a few key demographics for the Republicans – women, independents, white evangelicals and gun owners:

– White women voted McCain/Palin 53-46. That’s within the margin of error for how Bush/Cheney score with the same group in 2004, 55-44.

– White independents voted McCain/Palin 49-47. There are no comparable data on this group for 2004, but we do know that independents went for Kerry 49-48 in 2004, and 52-44 for Obama this year. It’s safe to conclude that the swing to Obama in this category was caused by non-white independents voting overwhelmingly for the Democratic ticket.

– White evangelical/born again cCristians voted McCain/Palin 74-24 in 2008, which is slightly lower than the 78-21 breakdown in 2004. But their share of the total vote was larger this time than last time (26 percent in 2008 versus 23 percent in 2004), so on balance the white evangelical/born again contribution to the Republican vote was probably about the same size as it was in 2004.

– Gun owners voted for McCain/Palin in the same numbers they voted for Bush/Cheney last time round: 62-37 in 2008 versus 63-36 in 204

So, in those four major target groups, Palin delivered the goods for the McCain campaign. These are groups that were skeptical about McCain before Palin joined the ticket.

In all four categories, the McCain/Palin share of the vote was virtually identical to the Bush/Cheney share in 2004. That seemed impossible before Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin will be a force to be reckoned with over the next four years.”

Sarah Palin In 2012


It was a teary-eyed Sarah Palin who waved to the crowd in Phoenix last night and is now on her way home to Alaska to split time as Governor and Mom.

She has a son in Iraq, a daughter pregnant and an infant with Down Syndrome.

She has her hand’s full.

But she has made it clear that this is not the last we will see of Sarah Palin.

“I’m not doing this for naught,” Palin said last week, when asked if all the mudslinging in the campaign made her long for a return to the more sedate politics of Alaska, where she is governor.

After McCain’s stinging loss, Palin, 44, has emerged as one of the strongest brands the Republicans have got.

As one of the most recognisable figures in a party searching for direction and new leadership, Palin’s future role will be a major theme when Republican heavyweights weigh up strategies for the 2010 mid-term congressional elections.

“She definitely is going to be the most popular Republican in this country when this thing is over,” Republican strategist Ed Rollins, and former political director to president Ronald Reagan, told CNN before the election.

And the carefully coiffed conservative Christian who cast herself as a maverick, a reformer and an anti-corruption star, has clearly indicated the 2008 run wasn’t an end-all to her national political ambitions.

“I think that, if I were to give up and wave a white flag of surrender against some of the political shots that we’ve taken, that would bring this whole” endeavour to nothing, Palin told ABC last week.

In the last pre-election episode of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, comedienne Tina Fey, in her much lauded role impersonating Palin, made a show of “going rogue” from the McCain campaign talking points by trying to hawk “Palin 2012” t-shirts.

At Republican rallies in recent weeks supporters too have been seen displaying “Palin 2012″ shirts and banners.

There has been talk in Hollywood of Sarah Palin getting a talk show; talk in Washington of Sarah Palin as the best fundraiser the Republicans have; talk in Alaska of Sarah Palin running for the Senate.

There is a world of options in front of Sarah Palin. She is the star of the Republican Conservative base and if you think she will stay in Alaska for long – you’re wrong.”

Obama triumphs, will be first black US president

Obama triumphs, will be first black US president The Associated Press –  WASHINGTON (AP) – Barack Obama was elected the nation’s first black president Tuesday night in a historic triumph that overcame racial barriers as old as America itself.

John McCain’s White House bid: What went wrong?

 Tue. Nov. 4 2008 10:21 PM ET CTV.ca News  For the second time in eight years, Arizona Sen. John McCain failed in his bid to reach the White House. In the coming days and weeks television analysts, newspaper pundits, and political scientists will likely try to unravel the reasons McCain fell short this year. But a few key causes may already stand out.  There is little doubt that Barack Obama ran one of the best organized campaigns in U.S. presidential history, and the Democrat and his staff were largely responsible for McCain’s loss. But McCain, himself, did not help his cause. http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/story/CTVNews/20081104/mccains_loss_081104/20081104?s_name=uselection2008

There was no doubt about it , it seems 80 percent of the news media supported  Obama.

 Prophetic vision over America a NOW Vision

 

In worship Wednesday night 29 October /08 I was taken up by the wings of love …far up above the earth, above the America continent.  I ascended being carried by such love and adoration for mankind. I could feel the gentle touch of the Presence that escorted me beyond the earthly realm. I was peering down into the earth when I spotted a ring of fire.

It surrounded the White House .

Then it surrounded the city of Washington DC the Capitol and all the Monuments and the ENTIRE CITY

 

Instantly coming from behind me was a new wind… in this wind was the American bald eagle he was soaring with great strength

 

He soared past me not one wing flapping in  his eyes were  blazes of fire.

He was totally focused on Washington DC. in his beak He carried an olive branch .

 

This eagle soared all across the DC. area and around the White House. He did this several times.

 

Then he took off and went north… Moving very fast  soaring

The wind of the Spirit was in His Wings and he moved not wing he just soared

 

It went to Russia ,China, Hungary ,Paraguay , South America ,Cuba  Hawaii At one point i saw the Dome of the Rock and I saw Him soar over it  three times.

 

And back to the U.S.A . soaring thru the entire country and landed in Washington DC.On the roof of the White House. Where I last saw him perched on the flag pole.

Then…..

 The word of the Lord spoke to me

“This olive branch is what I have placed in  the mouth of the prophets I place an OLIVE BRANCH IN THE PROPHETS MOUTH America Prophets .

 

Prophets of America, prophecy rightly in grace and save the world from destruction.

 

It will be the fire of the prophets who will change the course of a nation . A holy fire !”

 

“These nations that were circled are where the nations where many prophets are in hiding.

American prophets prophecy to them courage to speak and have grace “

 

“Judgment begins in the house of the Lord not on the land of men  I will begin to show great discernment in the House of My Children says the Lord!”

 

 “I have not sent judgment I am sending A Prophetic Grace which will speak to MY church so they will love again.”

 

For through this  OLIVE BRANCH will love be extended by the hand of the King  Of Kings across the earth

GOD bless the Mouth of the Prophets

Jesus is the nectar of the taste of GOD

Psalm 34:7-9 

7[The Angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe] and each of them He delivers.

    8O taste and see that the Lord [our God] is good! Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts and takes refuge in Him.

    9O fear the Lord, you His saints [revere and worship Him]! For there is no want to those who truly revere and worship Him with godly fear.

I heard the words” Favor comes from the Lord of Grace and it  is open  and free at this very present time”.

 

Yes Favor to learn to grow, to experience, and, to be. YES TO BE!

Be what? To be what He as called you to be. An Ambassador of HIS Kingdom advancing rapidly throughout the earthy REALM .

 

The Lord showed me a very large diamond it was faceted on seven sides.

 

Inside this diamond I could see a hot flame the flame is the light of GODS love for this Church ever burning.The Flame is Jesus.

 

In every facet is a move of GOD presently working thru the earth today.

 

We know 7 is the number of GOD

 

 Prophetic words concerning “The Revival” in Lakeland Florida  The Miracles in Africa, The U.K. is coming alive . The Latin regions are about to come alive with the blaze of Mercy and the Asian Countries will begin to groan like never before  ALL these prophetic words are in the Realms of GOD .

 

Each realm or facet is in a different place or level or dimension.  Yet this diamond carries a brilliance that is so perfect I could barely look at it.

 

It reminded me of  the brilliance on Moses’ face when he descended from the mount.

 

Exodus 34:30
When Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, his face was radiant, and they were afraid to come near him

 

 Could this be the “Glory Dust” we see on the faces of some people?

That is a realm of GOD!

 

Yes it the obvious. A realm many go and  peer into then stand back and feel an awe about that  . GOD says GO and look and be not afraid for it is ME I AM  in that!

 

I AM the Awe Says GOD.

 

Then another facet is  Lakeland Florida where the Great Outpouring is taking place. Many are going to peer into that GO says the Lord I AM in that  I AM.

 

I saw another facet this one is different. This one has children in foreign countries getting aid from the church GO says the Lord I AM in that! I AM!

 

I turned over the faceted diamond and saw each facet was fitly joined together to make a point and this point represented  Holy Spirit  pointing us to The central flame  which is Jesus Jesus is flared upward a to the top where the stone is smooth … That is GOD the  Father ..The Final Landing place of GLORY a place large enough be in  the Kingdom of GOD

 

The 4th facet is the word of GOD  a place where those who only will rely on the Word of GOD to get what they need …This is ME says the  Lord It is ME I AM in that do it. I AM.

 

The 5th facet is the ministry of Salvation to the lost..

 

Ephesians 4:11

11And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers

TO DO THE WORK OF THE MINISTRY ….

DO THAT! “I AM IN THAT” SAYS THE LORD I AM!

The 6th facet was the Warfare facet here I saw many who fight the good fight of faith and GOD says “do that I AM in that I AM!”.

 1 Timothy 6:12
Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses

 The 7th was Revelation. For it is in REVELATION we find the illumination of The Glory of GODS secrets to us.

 This is where we should  all find ourselves uniting. For the Cause of Christ is the Cost of Christ.. It is also the most secret place on the diamond.. It’s a  place hidden. There in all its beauty.  But, it is the most pivotal it is closest the point.  Pointing to Jesus the Flame of LOVE

Love is everything ..

 This diamond has fallen to the earth.  It has all the knowledge that the GLORY REALM is EVERYTHING GOD IS DOING.  This diamond carries all the BUZZ words we hear…

Zechariah 3:9
See, the stone I have set in front of Joshua! There are seven eyes on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it,’ says the LORD Almighty, ‘and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day.

When the Glory Appears all the earths battles and gross darkness fades away!

Habakkuk 2:14
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea

FILLED? Yes it will be filled with  the radical ones  and the conservative ones , Demonstration and Proclamation, coupled with meekness and humility and power. All blessed with HIS Grace to get the tasks done.

SO what the Buzz all about these days? It’s about HIM and that HE is everywhere doing all HE can at once to win this great Harvest set before us. And there is enough for everyone to get what they need …. SO… “Go” says the LORD “IAM IN THAT, I AM”!

DEALING EFFECTIVELY with Computer Viruses, Spyware, etc.,

00health-7
 

 
 
Computer problems, ISP support services,  Viruses, spyware and what else.. Tech-savvy users willing to put up with an at-times annoying interface, as well as a daily pop-up ad, might prefer the stronger malware detection rate in Avira AntiVir Personal, which took top billing in the free AV ratings. Microsoft’s New Free Antivirus Hits the Streets. MSE, now available for download, Microsoft Security Essentials is a rerun no one should watch.   The free Security Essentials can be downloaded for Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 from the Microsoft Web site.
 
Computer problems and who eventually does not have them? Caused by viruses, spyware, malware, faulty computer equipment, or corrupted software, even a faulty ISP services. So where do you start? Note and write down what the symptoms are firstly. Secondly start with the security software.
 
But do note that if you are having a continual problem with your computer, ISP,  web access, spyware, or whatever, and are looking for a quick, simple, easy fix, solution in 5 minutes.. you can generally go back to sleep and dream on.. first turn off the alarm buzzer as well
0cmpt2
 
So, what is a good virus protection to use?
 
Again… as we learn … that there is no one program that gives 100% protection against viruses and malwares.  ** Not all computer problems are caused by viruses and malware. But first and foremost, do immediately get some computer protection. This includes anti-virus software, anti-spyware software, a firewall, anti-bot software and overall malware protection. One other way to help prevent spyware and other unwanted software is to make sure all your software is updated often too.
 
I am a pretty secure guy when it comes to using and maintaining my computer and so here are my  suggestions that I rely on  for a pretty trouble free computer   for my Windows PC  Keep your system up to date – visit http://www.windowsupdate.com to run a scan. It’ll step you through it.
 
Get Windows defender – head to www.windowsdefender.com  to grab this. It’s free and is from Microsoft. It does a pretty decent job of preventing spyware from entering your machine. Also, I love it for the feature of removing programs that start when your computer starts up . . . 
 
Get an Anti Virus software – Certain anti-virus software could bog down your machine  However, I’m using Avast and it’s doing great, it’s effective. And, best of all, it has a free version. Now,  to find from their website you head to www.download.com  and search for Avast 
On top of that since I found not one security software does everything still, periodically I also use the freeware Ad-Aware 2008 and/or  Spybot – Search & Destroy  and they are easily obtained on the same site  www.download.com  and also do See all of the most popular downloads
 
For anti-spyware I would recommend Ad-Aware 2008 or  Spybot – Search & Destroy. Simple enough. Install and update although I wouldn’t recommend the extra features (teatimer and whatever the other one is) because they can get kind of annoying.
 
Also do take a look at Free: Comodo Internet Security Suite  Its main program window presents the three major defense components: Antivirus, Firewall, and Defense+. Configuration options are plentiful on all three. The virus scanner supports automatic updates, flexible scheduling, multiple scanning profiles, excluded directories and files, and detailed logging. As you’d expect, the firewall offers a myriad of rule and configuration options. Granting and revoking trust from applications, ports, and networks is a clear, simple process. Novice users will either want to leave the default settings alone or spend some time reading the detailed (and user-friendly) help files, as a couple of wrong clicks can quickly create networking headaches. An active connections screen is also available and it presents information similar to Sysinternals’ TCPview, providing insight as to which applications are transmitting or receiving data. To download CIS, please visit: http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/download_cis.html
 
I do urge you to update your operating systems, security software, updates  regularly, even at least every other day,  and do also perform virus & spyware scans frequently. The question is not if you will get a virus or spyware, but rather when?
 
As for other security recommendations, download and do use Mozilla Firefox. It is a faster, more secure, and easier to use. I would also recommend installing addons called Ad Block Plus and Fasterfox.  Mozilla Firefox Install note: by default, some software  may or will install a toolbar and/or also change your home page. Pay attention to the install screens, and deselect them if you’re not interested.
 
Other notes:
– GOM is  most favorite media player, cause it lets me readily access so many options too. GOM Media Player Play back video files in most of the popular video formats.

-Resolving the Windows Update 0×8007043b Error.  Windows Update is a service provided by Microsoft for users of Microsoft Windows which provides updates for the operating system and its installed components is also not error proof,  sometimes things can go wrong and errors occur. This article on the Windows Update 0×8007043b Error should help you fix the problem:  http://www.updatexp.com/0×8007043b.html
 
– A Windows “Updater” Alternative…  Microsoft sends out the monthly operating system updates and/or the updates for Microsoft Office (if you have it installed); Or if your computer crashes, you do a complete restore and now you have to download all of the updates all over again (very time consuming). Another scenario is that your Windows updates become corrupted and the updater is not working properly or one of the updates from Microsoft is basically dead in the water… Well there is a solution that may assist you in each of the scenarios. It is called “AutoPatcher“…  this is “techie” software and I  Really it is not that hard to do…   Description of AutoPatcher from the website: What is AutoPatcher? AutoPatcher could be described as an offline Windows Update. AutoPatcher provides an interface to a large collection of updates, common applications and registry tweaks, that can be easily and quickly applied to your computer system. What are the advantages of AutoPatcher over Windows Update? The main advantage is that you just have to do one download in order to have all the patches and add-ons, such as Sun Java, MSN Messenger 7.x and Windows Media Player 10. If you have many computers or if you format your computer frequently, it saves both time and bandwidth. With AutoPatcher, you can install critical patches offline,  You can also come in handy when updating a friends PC, if he/she can’t access the Internet (or uses a narrowband connection).  AutoPatcher – http://www.autopatcher.com/
 
And yes even the macs are very easy to hack. Just look at this list is known exploits http://www.milw0rm.com/platforms/osX
 
– As for computer cleaning software I would recommend CCleaner.  CCleaner Clean up junk files and invalid Registry entries. Just click “Run cleaner” and “Scan registry for issues” (blue square) and that should clean out most of it. Also, running disk cleanup and disk defragmentor should speed up your computer significantly (Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools).
http://www.ccleaner.com/download
 
–  DriverMax  Extract and back up your Windows drivers and reinstall them easily after a new Windows setup.Now that you have some of the knowledge you need to know. Help others now too. Pass it on  http://www.drivermax.com/download.htm
 
–  uTorrent Download torrent files to your PC.  Be still wary of popular “free” music, free files and all of the free movie file-sharing programs, and be sure you clearly understand all of the software packaged associated with those programs.
http://www.utorrent.com/download.php
 
– Install two web  browsers at least, Internet explorer and Firefox,  and if you have web page connectivity problem check it with both of them first.
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/
 
– But Do see More great software
http://www.snapfiles.com/
 
– Plus avoid emails from people you don’t know.

– Don’t just download stuff you really don’t know anything about.

– Avoid always going to risky sites (you can probably guess).

-Make sure you use secure passwords. These should be 8+ characters, consisting of numbers, letters and alphanumeric characters. It should also be something more complicated than a name or nickname. And for a  few examples would be SkAl2134!$ or S0mT1Ng$%#.

Your Windows PC – Best Practices Here are some more basic tips on keeping your computing experience as trouble-free as possible.

1.   Backup your files/information monthly at least
2.   Use Firefox instead of Internet Explorer for web browsing
3.   Use a reliable web based email like Gmail, so you have a backup of your emails online as well as onsite… you can set up POP access or access via web browser.
4.   Don’t download software from unknown sites
5.   Don’t use peer-to-peer software like   Limewire; if you must use them, remember: caveat emptor
6.   Ensure MS Windows is updated
7.   Ensure MS Office is updated if equipped
8.   Ensure the Windows Firewall is enabled
9.   Use a hardware firewall like a router if possible
10.   Don’t leave a wireless network unsecured/unencrypted
11.  Ensure antivirus software is installed and updated
12.   Ensure antispyware software is installed, updated and run periodically
13.  Defragment hard drive monthly
14.  Disable unused/unnecessary programs from startup in MSCONFIG
15.  Use Google Desktop Search for more efficient document retrieval and processing
16.  Keep all software disks that came with the computer and any peripherals; especially any software installation keys
17.  Don’t turn off your computer by unplugging it

   The  PC World’s and other’s quick fixes for your worst security nightmares that will happen likely if you do nothing about it.. 

 
Follow all of these simple tips to reduce your own Computer vulnerability.
 
Hackers tend to  exploit  known security holes that many users haven’t bothered to patch even by relying on the sad propensity of the millions of computer users who had failed   to do things they’ve been told over and over to do,, or done what they have been told not to do.. And you don’t have to be a Computer Guru  to avoid these  common computer attacks either. Implement a few simple fixes, and for a start you’ll avoid most  of the bad stuff out there.
1:Do get and install adequate computer firewall protection immediately
 
2: Did you listen to the so called experts, and  Have you wrongfully turned off the automatic updates for Windows and other programs on the rationale that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?” Dream on in reality tfor the still he unpatched  software gives hackers the perfect opportunity to do exploit still your computer by launching  a series of probes against your PC in search of just one unpatched  vulnerability that a probe can exploit. If it finds one, you really better hope your insteleld, adequate antivirus program catches the ensuing attack. Otherwise you likely won’t even notice anything amiss as it infects your system until it is too late, and your computer slows down, acts funny  now instead. Hackers like to find the holes es in seemingly innocuous applications such as QuickTime and WinZip as well as in Windows and Internet Explorer or whatever. So do get and do turn on the  automatic update features for any and all software that offers  the service–it’s your quickest and easiest option for getting patches.
 
3: Fix all of the potentical security Holes now and Get the free software updater  http://www.filehippo.com/updatechecker/ at http://www.filehippo.com/
 
4:  No browser, software  completely eliminates the risk of  being hacked, damages, but do regualry stay update with the updates ..
 
5:  Check your downloads at  http://www.virustotal.com/  Virustotal is a service that analyzes suspicious files and facilitates the quick detection of viruses, worms, trojans, and all kinds of malware detected by antivirus engines. More information…You can  easily upload any file (up to 10MB) to the site and have it scanned by a whopping 35 different antivirus engines, including ones from Kaspersky,  McAfee, and Symantec. A report tells you what each engine thought about your  file.  the  lack of warnings doesn’t guarantee a file is safe, but it does give you  pretty good odds. Use a good virsu chekcer Virus   to check every e-mail attachment and download you’re not 100 percent sure about, and you’ll likleyt avoid hcaker’s induced catshrophes. Do also download the  free VirusTotal Uploader. Once you’ve installed the utility, just right-click a file, and you’ll see an option (under Send To) to upload it to  the VirusTotal site.

 

 

 

 

6: Rescue Your main mail Inbox From Spam. Use as well  disposable e-mail addresses. Such an address is something you create every time you encounter an online  shopping site, forum, or other service that requires you to enter an e-mail  address. If that address gets flooded with spam, you can terminate it.
That’s a better system than the alternative, creating a multiple of  free Web mail such as Gmail , Yahoo Web mail  and a good, free service is available from http://www.spamgourmet.com/ a service that’s quick and easy to set up and use; it allows you to create disposable addresses on-the-fly that will forward e-mail messages to your regular address next.
 
Fix 7: Develop an Antiphishing Habit  The best approach, and the most straightforward, is never to click a link in  any e-mail message to access your financial accounts. Instead, always type  the URL or use a bookmark. That one habit will protect you from almost every  phishing attack.
Tthe latest version of Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Opera  they All have built-in  features to block known phishing sites ( Avoid Safari, which lacks
any built-in antiphishing protection.

 

 

 

 

8: Make Your Passwords Secure–And Easy to Remember Use at least both letters and numbers for a start
 
9: Do not hesitate to Get Extra Cleaning Help for Stubborn Infections.
 
Sometimes even the best antivirus program misses an infection. And once a  virus or Trojan horse gets in, removing it can be incredibly tough. If you  suspect some nasty got past your defenses, then it’s time to bring in extra  help. Many antivirus makers offer free and easy online scans through your Web  browser.
Trend Micro HouseCall: Will detect and remove malware; works with both IE
and Firefox.
BitDefender Online Scanner: Detects and removes malware; requires IE.
Kaspersky Online Scanner: Detects malware, but doesn’t remove it; works with
IE and Firefox.
F-Secure Online Virus Scanner: Detects and removes malware; requires IE.
ESET Online Scanner: Detects and removes malware; requires IE.
 
Help yourself by now helping others too, pass this and other security tips to them as well.,
 
** Quite often even if the ISP, Internet Service Provider lies to you and says the internet problems are solely on your computer it can be in fact be rather with the ISP itself, their  cable or phone lines still too. As too often is the case with Bell. But anyway next do also test your own computer also
 
“Here are some basic hardware troubleshooting steps:

 

Open the computer and run it open after cleaning out all dust bunnies. Be careful when you clean; use compressed air and be gentle. Observe all fans (overheating will cause system freezing and/or crashing). This includes the fan on your video card if you have one. Obviously you can’t do this with a laptop, but you can hear if the fan is running and feel if the laptop is getting too hot. For a desktop, without touching anything, hold your hand close to the inside of the case and feel how hot things are getting.

Test the RAM – I like Memtest 86+ from http://www.memtest.org . Obviously, you have to get the program from a working machine. You will either download the precompiled Windows binary to make a bootable floppy or the .iso to make a bootable CD. If you want to use the latter, you’ll need to have third-party burning software on the machine where you download the file and burn as an image, not as data. In either case, boot with the media you made. The test will run immediately. Let the test run for an hour or two unless errors are seen immediately. If you get any errors, replace the RAM. It is extremely important that you get RAM that is compatible with your motherboard (and the RAM already in the machine). Crucial Technology has a Memory Selection Tool on their website.
 
Test the hard drive with a diagnostic utility from the drive manufacturer. If you aren’t sure what drive you have or can’t find a utility for it, Seagate’s SeaTools for DOScan test non-Seagate drives. Download the file and make a bootable floppy or CD with it. You need third-party burning software and to burn as an image, not as data. Boot with the media you created and do a thorough test. If the drive has physical errors, replace it. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools
 
The power supply may be going bad or be inadequate for the devices you have in the system. The adequacy issue doesn’t really apply to a laptop, although of course the power supply can be faulty. For a desktop, test by swapping out the PSU for a known-working one. If you have one of the higher-end video cards that requires a separate power supply connector, make sure it is in place.
 
Test the motherboard with something like TuffTest from http://www.tufftest.com  or the Ultimate Boot CD. Sometimes this is useful, and sometimes it isn’t.
 
Testing hardware failures usually involved swapping out suspected parts with known-good parts. If you can’t do the testing yourself and/or are uncomfortable opening your computer, take the machine to a reliable professional computer repair shop. Check with others as to who is reliable and who is not first too.  . Have all your data backed up before you take the machine into a shop. “
 
Diagnosing your internet connectivity issues
 
Testing your ISP- Understanding Your Internet Connection
 
PING TEST- CONTINUAL PING TEST-TRACE ROUTE TEST If you question the speed or reliability of your ISP, your  Internet connection please run the following Internet connectivity tests. These two tests are a great way to see how you are connecting to the servers. 
 
Now what about also still testing the reliability of your ISP, your Internet service provider.. with a speed tests  http://www.acanac.ca/speedtest/  which still alone are not an adequate solution  here too. So what is? Old fashion Hard work, reading, evaluating, talking to others is often required still too. And often much more..
  
*You may need to run a software program as an administrator   To run a security software or any , other program as an administrator, go to the software short cut, Right click on  it,  got to the properties,  Go  to the Advanced box, click on it,  And select Run as Administrator,  save the settings
 
Resolving Cable, Broadband Internet Connection Problems in Windows Vista  “If the computer is still having issues connecting to the Internet and the network test passes or repairs the connection, it is possible that the service is down, the Internet connection software that was provided by the ISP is not configured correctly. Call the support phone number for the ISP for help with configuring the settings in Windows and the ISP software. Be sure to provide the ISP with the information from the network diagnostics utility.”   http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00829717&dlc=en
 
Internet Explorer 7 Freezes Or Crashes Frequently In Windows Vista.
 
If you find that your IE 7 Freezing or Crashing frequently in Windows Vista, here are some trouble-shooting steps you may try:
 
A – Run your anti-virus and an anti-spyware like Spybot, to check for malware infections.
 
B- Clear Cache. Or else run your Junk Cleaner or CCleaner.
In IE 7, click Tools > Internet options > Security > Reset all zones to Default level
 
C- If still you find your IE7 giving problems, close it and run IE (No Add-ons)
This opens up the browser without loading any add-ons, toolbars or plug-ins.

If you find it running OK, then the problem is most probably caused by an add on.
In such a case then you have two options :
1) use the manage Add-ons tool, and disable each one after the other to find out which one is causing the problem.
2) Else in Internet Options, go to Advanced Tab and click on Reset tab. Restart IE. This step deletes all temp files, disables any add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars and also resets all changed settings to default. Although this is a quick-fix, you will have to re-install the add-ons. The settings which are affected by this are mentioned here.

MY ISP
 
Recently I had problems with my internet connection for a whole week, and I get different advice from the so called experts to last a life time too.. Trouble shooting problems with computers can be a complex undertaking caused by a very small unresolved problem even.
 
Many times logging off your Internet service provider and then back on will resolve the problem. If you continually have a problem, you may want to have your line tested for noise or dropped packets by your ISP or you may want to get a different Internet service provider. http://www.mastertrader.com/education/intconn.asp 
 
 
Me being Unable to connect to the internet from my home..   A Bell technician finally after 2 years  showed up today at my home at 1:30 PM at Acanac’s suggestion and he reduced my internet, modem speed from 10 megs to 5 megs.. because he thinks the Acanac modem is the problem, it does not want to accept the 10 meg causing the recent past internet connectivity problem.. Somehow I doubted it .. there also had to be other factors elsewhere? Everything works great so far, web page connectivity and Utorrent download, so how can I complain, and let’s hope it lasts that way.. But I also suspect the peak line demands, capping, and line balance is part of the problem. The problem   came  back.  I am still having problems  to access my internet sites even http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/   and also to access my email, The next  morning at 10 am I saw 2 Bell trucks, and two employees  working at the closet   Bell telephone junction box about 10 yards from my home near my home, and I bluntly went and asked them if they were responsible for making my internet ineffective, but it appears they next  did not solve my internet problems. Now do tell the Bell to fix the problem. I have often rightfully said it  that  what Bell fixes on one hand the other hand makes it worse next. Reality.
  
Here is what I know for sure from my last two years of experiences in dealing with Bell..
-If I make enough noise, somehow next the bell tech fixes the problem for one week at least.. and next it comes back it seems.. someone has asked me if this was deliberate by Bell the return by Bell, and my reply was not they are generally pretentious incompetence.
-That includes Bell techs who visited my home, Bell support managers I talked to on the phone about 5 different ones, and the many Bell support personal I had talked to only line, by phone, and I had generally followed by email, the results of this action, and copies of them can be found on the web on many sites too. Almost all of  Bell tech who came to me did not know how to sue a computer or the software on it, seemed to have very little real computer expertise.. none of them were electrical engineers forma  University
-They all tried to say the same basic useless things to me, connection between the computer and the phone jack, line fitter, line connection, modem inadequate, possible other connections to the phone line. I have one phone, one computer, connected to one phone jack. a simple installation. The home connection is not the issue.  also they Bell have also  replaced 9 modems in one year so for sure it is not the modem as well.
 
Being a past  professional engineer, contracts manager too,  I have been ready to look into all the possible problem aspects in detail for the last 12  months too.. including management of Bell and it’s support personnel. It is very Inadequate for sure.
– I tend to be a  heavy, systematic, daily  user, and I have many different blog sites, about 16 at least..  wordpress.com, windows live, multiply.com , windows group, etc.,
-I tend to deal often with the same sites regularly, daily, I do try to access and post on my many of blogs daily, or weekly.. posting or accessing  many of my own blogs has become difficult,
-the connectivity problem is generally a more consistent one. meaning it last for days, weeks  and not a periodic one meaning where it fluctuates from day to day, or site to site
– The problem is not my Internet  download, internet speed, I am happy with the download speeds presently
 
I also do know that different people will speak on the subject from the degree of their level of expertise, ignorance and actual knowledge.
-Some people said it was  my firewall, or my anti virus security causing the problem.. but when I had removed both I still had the problem.
-Some people said it sounded like a virus.. well I checked my computer with 5 separate anytime virus, antispyware software.. no problem, clean bill of health
-Some people say it sounds like a computer, operating system problem. I used 3 different computers with different software, each with different operating systems and got the same problem. It is not the cache, hard disk, Vista, XP problem for sure. I have a new HP high speed computer and it had the same problem that my Dell windows 98, etc., did, and also my high speed Clone XP did too
-Some people said it was related to windows upgrade, but there has not being any direct proof of  that.– Hey yesterday I could not even access http://www.acanac.com/support/

 Like I have said before.. I learned long time ago just cause some one has a degree, a title, does not mean I have to believe his word, or believe that if he has a degree he has any  professional competency  now too. That includes all kind of professionals now too. My dad pay hundreds of dollars for a new set of glasses, and had to wait a month to get them, wore them for a moth, and could not see.. when I went to see the optometrist he said he had done his best. Crap I said, my father did not pay him to do his best but only paid him to do professional job and I next demanded my father’s full money back and we got it. We went immediately to another competitive optometrist next door and got a new pair of glasses at half the price in one hour and they worked well, my dad was happy.. so much for the so called professional.

How come access to my internet site is not continually reliable? The internet, computer and the tech support services, are like one big jig saw puzzle, leave out some pieces and the puzzle is not pretty any more. I cannot believe it I have had 10 bell technicians come to fix my internet problems, and none of them seem to know how to use a computer, One Bell tech  had even asked me to give him some instructions on how to use his windows 98 laptop. One persons tells me to put it on, the other one next says take it off.. includes the local network connection  configuration setup internet version protocol version 4 Preferred and alternate DNS server

apply Microsoft’s latest IE patch as soon as possible,

Microsoft Releases Critical Patch For IE Zero Day Flaw

 Dec.   2008   Microsoft (NSDQ:MSFT) issued an out-of-band emergency patch Wednesday for a zero-day Internet Explorer vulnerability that has opened the door for hackers to install malware on susceptible computers without any user intervention.  

The flaw, which is given the highest severity rating of critical, affects all versions of Microsoft’s IE Web browser. Specifically, Microsoft’s IE update affects versions of Windows 2000 for IE 5.01: XP, XP Professional, Server 2003 for IE 6; and XP, Server 2003, Vista, Server 2008 for IE 7. The vulnerability was reported after the release of Windows IE 8 Beta 2, but Microsoft still recommends in its advisory that users apply the patch.

The IE security problem is the result of a fundamental flaw in the browser’s data binding function, which ultimately leaves a hole in the memory space that can be accessed by remote hackers. Internet Explorer can then quit unexpectedly while in an exploitable state.

Unlike other exploits, users have only to visit a malicious site infused with Trojans or other malware in order to become infected. Hackers can also entice victims to visit a specially crafted site, usually via some kind of phishing or social engineering scheme, or place infected banner ads on legitimate Web sites.

Once users open an infected Web page, malicious downloaders are then installed on their computers, which are designed to record keystrokes and steal passwords, credit card numbers, or other financial information. The users’ computer could also become part of a botnet, an infected network of compromised computers, operated by a central command and control center.

Security experts strongly recommend that users apply Microsoft’s latest IE patch as soon as possible, which can be downloaded from the Microsoft Web site.

** Quite often even if the ISP, Internet Service Provider lies to you and says the internet problems are solely on your computer it can be in fact be rather with the ISP itself, their  cable or phone lines still too. As too often is the case with Bell. But anyway next do also test your own computer also
 
 

 

Someone said that Hell is here on earth for a start.. based on the number of daily viruses, Trojans increasing now that seems to be true.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/10/28/consumer-complaints-abuses-and-their-increase-was-so-predictable/

Lately supposedly  the reason many even Vista personal computers seem to freeze up  is that some people have not updated all of their software, especially their Adobe software,  that Microsoft explorer also uses such as http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ http://get.adobe.com/reader/   http://get.adobe.com/air/ http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/02/22/windows-7-vista-computer-operating-systems/
