7 foods to look 7 years younger

*a Cease and Desist Order

Today from Jane Hamon:

A Spiritual Cease and Desist Order!

Daniel chapter 7 tells us about the activity in the court of heaven. God is the Judge and Supreme Ruler and we are the Ekklesia...the church... Which in Greek is the legislative body ruling over the land. 

As we at Vision Church at Christian International have pondered this concept, one of our leaders, Dr. Chuck Lorrain, felt it was appropriate to write a legal statement to be presented in the court of heaven during a time of corporate meeting.

Here is an example of a Cease and Desist Order he wrote for Believers to use in their Appeal to Heaven.

We, the corporate Body of Christ, as the legal representative of the Lord Jesus Christ here on earth, decree and declare to Satan and the powers of darkness the following cease and desist order:

You shall immediately—

Cease and desist your attacks on the physical bodies of the body of Christ

Cease and desist in robbing the financial resources of the body of Christ

Cease and desist in destroying the material possessions of the body of Christ

Cease and desist in stealing the vision of the body of Christ

Cease and desist in interfering with, or causing delay, in the promises of God to the body of Christ.

Cease and desist in causing lethargy and apathy in the body of Christ

Cease and desist in causing dullness of hearing in the body of Christ

Cease and desist in causing diminished vision in the body of Christ

Cease and desist in hindering the voice of the Lord from going forth to the body of Christ.

We further decree and declare that you shall return double of all that you have taken, stolen, or destroyed, with interest, to the body of Christ.

So shall it be executed on this day, the 23rd day of April 2014

So let it be done on earth as it is in heaven—
Amen

BOOK REVIEW: CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE


Two different people, two different world's and life experiences. Nick and Annie are headed for a
collision and it doesn't look like at first they have any idea its coming.  Annie remembers Nick, but he knows a whole lot about her life, way back when.  That life held nothing but pain so she's comfortable with her freedom on the open range.  There she was hiding from men, dressed like one and hunting like one.  Nick is a total opposite, a city man with high ambitions to continue to make his way properous. There's no way these can fit, is there?

I had mixed feelings about this book.  Although I really wanted to see Nick and Annie work things out and come together, I really had a hard time getting through a lot of this book.  On the down side, I didn't really like the business part of Nick's story.  The railroad and the political elements I didn't really enjoy that much. Now, Nick and Annie, the story between them I did find interesting.  Annie was an interesting story all on her own, she went through an incredible amount of pain and suffering.  The story also was about both of them finding God and letting Him really lead their lives, to trust Him.
I do have to admit as it got towards the end of the book, I did cry at the unselfish decisions that Annie had to make. The author definitely definitely roped me in on that part.

 I received a FREE copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers as part of their book review program, and I am under no obligation to write a positive review.



Is red wine really good for you? A Cardiologist explains - Fox 2 News Headlines

Is red wine really good for you? A Cardiologist explains - Fox 2 News Headlines



By Dr. Joel Kahn 

Many people, myself included, count wine as one of the joys in life.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Cannonau … the list goes on and many seem like dear friends.
We all know that there's a line between enjoying some wine and suffering the terrible consequences of alcoholism, but where do you draw that line?
Do you have a second, third or fourth glass? Do you drink regularly?
As I have to counsel patients on these questions, and deal with my own oenophilia, I turned to science for some answers.
To understand the connection between wine consumption and health, it helps to have an appreciation of the U-shaped curve in medicine.
Many aspects of our health can be described by a U-shaped curve, which is the idea that too much or too little of a behavior can be unhealthy, and the sweet spot (at the base of the U), is where you tend to have optimal results. This is true for blood sugar, blood pressure, how much you exercise, and how much you drink.

What you need to know about wine and health:

1. A drink in most research studies is 14 grams of ethanol or 0.6 fluid ounces of pure alcohol. This equates to a 12-ounce beer, a 5-ounce glass of table wine, or 1.5 ounces of hard liquor. If you remember that the typical Dixie cup is 3 ounces, that can help you judge the volume in a pour.

2. "Light to moderate" drinking (defined as 1 drink a day for women, 2 drinks a day for men) is associated with lower rates of overall mortality, heart deaths, diabetes mellitus, heart failure, and strokes and these benefits are easier to demonstrate in people over 50 years of age.

3. Women generally have lower levels of alcohol dehydrogenase, an enzyme in the liver that metabolizes alcohol, and therefore are advised to drink smaller amounts.

4. In an analysis of studies combining data on over 1 million people and overall death rates, the U shaped curve was "sweetest" at "1 to 2 drinks per day for women and 2 to 4 drinks per day for men." Why? There are many beneficial effects of alcohol, including enhancing insulin action, raising HDL cholesterol, reducing inflammation, and improving arterial function. Red wine is particular is rich in polyphenols, with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antiplatelet actions. 

5. In a separate analysis of drinking(and specifically heart deaths) in 250,000 US adults, researchers found that up to 7 drinks per week for women and 14 drinks per week for men was associated with over a 30% drop in mortality.

6. In an analysis of the health benefits of the Mediterranean Diet in almost 25,000 Greeks, moderate alcohol consumption (1 to 3 drinks a day for men and 1 to 2 for women) was the strongest factor in preventing death, with eating little meat and eating more vegetables numbers 2 and 3!

There is no doubt that the U-shaped curve of drinking for health is also a slippery slope that can lead to abuse. The American Heart Association advises people not to start a drinking habit for health gains. Nonetheless, for those that enjoy an alcoholic drink, a daily 5-ounce glass or red wine (or two) has scientific support.
Is drinking for everyone? Clearly not and you should listen to your body. If alcohol doesn't agree with you for any reason, skip it and work on other health prevention measures like diet, exercise and stress management.
Pinot noir is generally credited with having the highest concentration of resveratrol, while cannonau from Sardinia gets a nod for the exceptional longevity on that island.
Long ago, Benjamin Franklin said that "wine makes daily living easier, less hurried, with fewer tensions and more tolerance." If you will stick to the "sweet spot" and recognize that the dose makes the poison, it may make life longer too.
