From The Den

July 18th, 2015 – From The Den

A promise has come to me very clearly that over the Middle East and specifically over Iraq and those regions, something has opened up. Now, somebody says, “Well, what does that something mean?” It means there are people, not praying in America necessarily, but in Iran, in Iraq, in those regions, God has heard the prayers of the Christians on that territory where there is blood being shed. As a result of it, and this came to me, just came to me two days ago, three days ago, that there will be provision for the world because of what’s opened up over the Middle East. Now that sounds crazy, I know, because there’s so much wickedness going on with the leaders there. That doesn’t matter. So God spoke about the fact that there would be blessings that would come as a result of their prayers being answered. As a result of it, there will be a surrender. There will also be a financial issue concerning the dinar that I clearly heard because of this opening up as well.

So the angel of God appears to Gideon and Gideon hears the promise where God says, “I’m going to free you from the stronghold of the Midianites after seven years.” After seven years of America being under the cloud of judgment and depression and America being for seven years in a state where it has had no freedom and no liberty, that is coming to an end. That is the promise that God has just given.

The Spirit of God is speaking now over the region of Iraq, over the region of Iran, over the regions of the Middle East and southern Asia. The earth has shaken and shall shake again. But God said I am speaking that I may release resources, and there will be a grave surrender that will take place in the months to come. I want to free you, every one of you, My people, to be able to stretch out their hand to the lonely, to the hungry, to the poor, and feed them and clothe them. This is My desire, says the Lord. Therefore, there shall be a break in the financial system in the Middle East, the dinar. And then he shall say, “Why? Why now?” And God said, when things seem at their worst, I shall bring it forth and I shall free them up. There shall be a prosperity in a place where you least expect it. The prayers of My people in Iran and the prayers of My Christian people that have come forth from Iraq and from Palestine – yes Palestine – and even those regions, I will hear their prayers and I will do something marvelous and will affect this nation, says the Lord. You put your hand in the hand of Iran? I say to you, I will remove the hand of America out of the hand of Iran, says the Lord, and I will free up My people for the promise is yes and amen. Yes and amen! Yes and amen! Yes and amen!

Something has opened up, and please hear me when I say this. Many people don’t see it or even receive it because they say, “Oh, I’ve heard that before.” You’d better listen very carefully because when God declares because of the youth and the prophetic sound in the youth, and there is, believe it or not. The heavens are opening up – not the old system of Eli the high priest, but a new system that will be set up as the result of God releasing a Samuel to the earth. Your children are important to God. You are important to Him. He’s looking to your future.

From The Den

July 25th, 2015 – From The Den

The Spirit of the Lord says, I hear what you are saying. I hear you are saying you will take it back. But do you realize that I’m taking it back, says the Lord? It’s not just you, but it is I that is taking it back, says the Lord. For yes, I’ve watched as the soil and the elements of this nation and the world have rebelled and said, “We wish to erupt; we wish to shake.” And I have stopped them for there has been one that I have stopped the latter part of last year, says the Lord, that would have destroyed buildings all up the Pacific Northwest, all up the Pacific Northwest. But I stopped it. I said, “No, you will not.” For there shall arise leaders that shall speak the truth in this nation and I will give them one more chance, says the Lord. And because of that, I have extended My period of grace and I will remove from this office those who have corrupted the truth and lied and spoken to their enemies at the gate as if they were their friends. This has insulted me, says the Lord. Therefore, I will give you peace, I will give you righteousness and there shall arise men and women that shall pray in the White House and they shall bring the latter rain into this nation and onto the earth, says the Lord. All I want you to do is shout and these walls will come down, says the Lord.

Don’t Serve the Problem

Don’t Serve the Problem

Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him.

– Isaiah 55:7

You can’t win a victory as long as the problem is the biggest thing in your life!

The Lord woke me up to that fact a few years ago. At that time I was facing some difficulties in my ministry that seemed so big to me, I thought about them from morning till night. Even though I was standing against them, I was thinking more about those problems than about the scripture promises I was standing on.

Then I saw something in Matthew 6:24-25: “Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life….”

I’d read that scripture hundreds of times, but that day I saw something I’d never noticed before. I saw that immediately after Jesus said, “No man can serve two masters,” He said, “Take no thought.” Suddenly it hit me: We serve our thoughts!

That’s why Isaiah 55 says for us to forsake our thoughts, and by the Word, take God’s thoughts. That’s why 2 Corinthians 10:5 says to cast down thoughts that challenge the Word and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

Do you want deliverance from your problems today?

Then quit serving them! Quit allowing them to consume your thought life. And don’t wait until circumstances change to do it. Instead, realize that circumstances won’t ever change until you switch from wrong to right thinking.

I know that’s not easy to do, especially in the midst of heavy darkness and trial. But you can do it if you’ll do these three things:

First, remember you aren’t alone. You have the Word (God’s thoughts). You have the Holy Spirit to strengthen you and you have the mind of Christ.

Second, get around people who are full of faith. Instead of rehearsing your problem, let them do the talking. Make yourself listen. Join in with their faith and resist darkness.

Third, praise God. Do whatever it takes to make yourself praise. When you begin to praise, God’s presence will turn back those worried thoughts and make them fall!

Your problems are not the biggest thing in your life. Jesus is. Serve Him with your thoughts and He will set you free!

Diene nicht dem Problem

Der Gottlose verlasse seinen Weg und der Übeltäter seine Gedanken und kehre um zum Herrn, so wird er sich seiner erbarmen.

– Jesaja 55:7

Du kannst keinen Sieg erringen, solange das Problem die größte Sache in deinem Leben ist!

Der Herr rüttelte mich vor einigen Jahren bezüglich dieser Tatsache wach. Zu jener Zeit hatte ich in meinem Dienst einige Schwierigkeiten, die mir so groß erschienen, dass ich von morgens bis abends darüber nachdachte. Obschon ich gegen sie anging, dachte ich mehr über jene Probleme nach, als über die Verheißungen der Schrift, auf die ich mich berief.

Dann sah ich etwas in Matthäus 6:24,25: „Ihr könnt nicht Gott dienen und dem Mammon. Darum sage ich euch: Macht euch keine Gedanken um euer Leben.“

Ich hatte diese Schriftstelle Hunderte von Malen gelesen, aber an jenem Tag sah ich etwas, was ich nie zuvor bemerkt hatte. Mir fiel auf, dass unmittelbar nachdem Jesus gesagt hatte, „Niemand kann zwei Herren dienen“, Er hinzufügte: „Macht euch keine Gedanken.“ Plötzlich dämmerte es mir: Wir dienen unseren Gedanken!

Deswegen werden wir im 55. Kapitel des Buches Jesaja aufgefordert, unsere Gedanken zu verlassen und durch das Wort Gottes Gedanken anzunehmen! Und deshalb heißt es im 2. Korinther 10:5, dass wir Gedanken, die im Widerspruch zum Wort sind, austreiben und jeden Gedanken zum Gehorsam gegen Christus gefangen nehmen sollen!

Möchtest du heute von deinen Problemen befreit werden?

Dann höre auf, ihnen zu dienen! Höre auf, ihnen zu erlauben, dein Gedankenleben zu beherrschen. Und warte damit nicht, bis sich die Umstände verändern. Begreife stattdessen, dass sich deine Umstände nicht ändern werden, solange du nicht vom falschen auf das richtige Denken umschaltest.

Ich weiß, dass dies nicht leicht zu bewerkstelligen ist, besonders inmitten tiefer Finsternis und Versuchung. Aber du kannst es, wenn du Folgendes beachtest und tust:

Erstens: Denke daran, dass du nicht alleine bist. Du hast das Wort (Gottes Gedanken). Du hast den Heiligen Geist, der dich stärkt und du hast die Gesinnung Christi.

Zweitens: Halte dich an Leute, die voller Glauben sind. Zähle nicht deine Probleme auf, sondern lasse sie das Gespräch führen. Sei bereit, zuzuhören. Schließe dich ihrem Glauben an und widerstehe der Finsternis.

Drittens: Lobe und preise Gott. Tue, was immer es bedarf, um Ihn deinerseits zu preisen. Wenn du mit Lobpreis beginnst, wird Gottes Gegenwart diese sorgenvollen Gedanken zurückdrängen und zu Fall bringen!

Deine Probleme sind nicht die größte Sache in deinem Leben. Jesus ist es! Diene Ihm mit deinen Gedanken und Er wird dich freisetzen!

No le sirva al problema

Deje el impío su camino, y el hombre inicuo sus pensamientos, y vuélvase a Jehová, el cual tendrá de él misericordia

– Isaías 55:7a

Usted no puede obtener la victoria mientras el problema sea lo más importante en su vida.

Hace algunos años, el Señor me reveló esa realidad. En esa época enfrentaba algunas dificultades en mi ministerio, las cuales me parecían tan grandes que pensaba en ellas desde la mañana hasta la noche. Aunque los estaba resistiendo, pensaba más en esos problemas que en las promesas de las Escrituras sobre las cuales me estaba apoyando.

Entonces descubrí algo en Mateo 6:24-25:

«Ninguno puede servir a dos señores; porque o aborrecerá al uno y amará al otro, o estimará al uno y menospreciará al otro. No podéis servir a Dios y a las riquezas».

Yo había leído esos versículos centenares de veces, pero ese día observé algo que no había notado antes. Después de que Jesús expresó: «Ninguno puede servir a dos señores», dijo: No se preocupen. De repente esa frase me iluminó. ¡Nosotros le servimos a nuestras preocupaciones!

Por eso, en Isaías 55 se nos indica que dejemos nuestros pensamientos, y por la Palabra tomemos los pensamientos de Dios. En 2 Corintios 10:5, se nos dice que derribemos argumentos y toda altivez que se levanta contra el conocimiento de Dios, y llevemos cautivo todo pensamiento a la obediencia a Cristo.

¿Quiere usted liberación de sus problemas hoy?

¡Entonces deje de servirles! No les permita que consuman su vida. No espere hasta que las circunstancias cambien para hacerlo. En lugar de eso, comprenda que las circunstancias no cambiarán jamás hasta que usted cambie los pensamientos equivocados por los pensamientos correctos.

Sé que eso no es fácil de hacer, especialmente en medio de las pruebas y de las densas tinieblas. Pero usted puede si practica estas tres cosas:

Primero: Recuerde que no está solo. Usted tiene la Palabra (los pensamientos de Dios). Tiene el Espíritu Santo que le fortalece y posee la mente de Cristo.

Segundo: Acérquese a personas que estén llenas de fe. En vez de repasar su problema, deje que ellos hablen. Dispóngase a escuchar. Únase a la fe de ellos y resista las tinieblas.

Tercero: Alabe a Dios. Haga lo que sea necesario para alabar. ¡Al empezar a alabarle, la presencia de Dios rechazará esos pensamientos de preocupación y los derribará!

Sus problemas no son lo más importante en su vida. Lo más importante es Jesús. ¡Sírvale con sus pensamientos y Él lo hará libre!

Ne servez pas le problème

Que le méchant abandonne sa voie, et l’homme d’iniquité ses pensées; qu’il retourne à l’Eternel, qui aura pitié de lui, à notre Dieu, qui ne se lasse pas de pardonner.

– Esaïe 55:7

Vous ne pouvez remporter la victoire sur un problème, aussi longtemps qu’il sera ce qu’il y a de plus grand dans votre vie !

Le Seigneur me rendit attentif à cela, il y a quelques années. A l’époque, je faisais face, dans mon ministère, à des difficultés qui me paraissaient si grandes, que j’y pensais du matin au soir. Malgré le fait que je leur résistais, je passais plus de temps à penser à ces problèmes qu’aux promesses bibliques sur lesquelles je m’appuyais.

C’est alors que je découvris quelque chose dans Matthieu 6:24-25 : « Vous ne pouvez servir Dieu et Mammon. C’est pourquoi je vous dis : Ne vous inquiétez pas pour votre vie… »

J’avais lu ces versets des centaines de fois. Mais, ce jour-là, je vis quelque chose que je n’avais jamais remarqué auparavant. Je vis qu’immédiatement après que Jésus ait dit : « Nul ne peut servir deux maîtres », Il rajouta : « Ne vous inquiétez pas ». Soudain, cela me frappa : nous sommes au service de nos inquiétudes !

C’est pour cela qu’Esaïe 55 nous dit d’abandonner nos pensées et de les remplacer par celles de Dieu, à travers Sa Parole. C’est pour cela aussi que 2 Corinthiens 10:5 nous dit de renverser tout raisonnement qui s’élève contre la Parole et d’amener toute pensée captive à l’obéissance de Christ.

Voulez-vous être délivré de vos problèmes, aujourd’hui ?

Alors, arrêtez de les servir ! Ne les laissez pas occuper vos pensées. Et n’attendez pas que vos circonstances changent pour le faire. Au contraire, réalisez que celles-ci ne changeront pas, tant que vous n’aurez pas remplacé votre mauvaise façon de penser par la bonne.

Je sais que ce n’est pas facile à faire, en particulier si vous êtes au milieu d’épaisses ténèbres et de grandes difficultés. Mais vous pouvez y arriver, si vous faites ces trois choses :

1. Rappelez-vous que vous n’êtes pas seul. Vous avez la Parole (les idées de Dieu), le Saint-Esprit pour vous fortifier, et la pensée de Christ.

2. Entourez-vous de croyants remplis de foi. Au lieu de leur répéter vos problèmes, permettez-leur de parler, et écoutez-les. Joignez votre foi à la leur et résistez aux ténèbres.

3. Louez le Seigneur. Faites tout ce qu’il faut pour vous permettre de Le louer. Lorsque vous commencerez à louer Dieu, Sa présence repoussera vos pensées d’inquiétude et les fera disparaître !

Vos problèmes ne sont pas ce qu’il y a de plus grand dans votre vie. C’est Jésus qui est le plus grand ! Mettez vos pensées à Son service et Il vous délivrera !

Не служите проблеме

“Да оставит нечестивый путь свой и беззаконник – помыслы свои, и да обратится к Господу, и Он помилует его…”

– (Исаия 55:7)

Вы не можете иметь победу до тех пор, пока ваша проблема является чем-то самым большим в вашей жизни!

Господь открыл мне на это глаза несколько лет назад. В то время я столкнулся с некоторыми трудностями в своем служении, которые казались мне такими большими, что я думал о них с утра до вечера. Хотя я и противостоял им, но все равно думал об этих проблемах гораздо больше, чем о Библейских обетованиях, на которые опирался.

Но затем я кое-что увидел в Евангелии от Матфея 6:24-25:

“Не можете служить Богу и маммоне. Посему говорю вам, не заботьтесь…”

Я читал это место сотни раз, но в тот день увидел то, чего не замечал раньше. Я заметил, что сразу же после того, как Иисус сказал: “Никто не может служить двум господам”, Он говорит: “Не заботьтесь”. И вдруг я понял: мы служим нашим мыслям!

Вот почему в 55-ой главе книги Исаии сказано, чтобы мы оставили свои мысли и с помощью Слова Божьего приняли мысли Божьи. Вот почему 2-ое Послание к Коринфянам 10:5 говорит ниспровергать всякое помышление, которое противоречит Слову Божьему, и пленять всякую мысль в послушание Христу.

Хотите ли вы сегодня освободиться от своих проблем?

Тогда перестаньте служить им! Перестаньте позволять им занимать все ваши мысли. И не ждите, пока изменятся обстоятельства. Сделайте это сейчас. Поймите, обстоятельства не изменятся до тех пор, пока вы не поменяете неправильное мышление на правильное.

Я знаю, что это нелегко, особенно посреди непроглядной тьмы и испытаний. Но вы сможете сделать это, если соблюдете следующие три условия:

  • во-первых, помните, что вы не один. У вас есть Слово Божье (Божьи мысли). У вас есть Дух Святой, чтобы подкреплять вас, а также у вас есть ум Христов;
  • во-вторых, постарайтесь быть поближе к тем, кто полон веры. Вместо того чтобы без конца повторять о своих проблемах, лучше позвольте говорить этим людям. Заставьте себя слушать их. Соедините свою веру с их верой и противостаньте тьме.
  • в-третьих, прославляйте Бога. Чего бы вам это ни стоило, заставляйте себя прославлять Бога. Когда вы начнете прославлять, Божье присутствие поможет вам избавиться от этих тревожных мыслей!

Ваши проблемы не являются самым большим в вашей жизни. Самым большим является Иисус. Служите Ему своими мыслями, и Он освободит вас!

Righteousness triumphs over evil.  Do what it takes to win every battle and in so doing you will win the war.  I have given you the authority to defeat the powers of darkness regardless of how they manifest, but you must exercise your legal right to overcome.  Discern your spiritual environment to know when and what to fight, says the Lord.  Luke 10:19  “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

Prophetic Alert by Kim Clement

Prophetic Alert

April 1st, 2015 – From The Den

How you have fallen, O Lucifer – you who once carried the praises and the songs. How you have fallen. The nations shall look upon you and they shall say, “Was this the one who caused the nations to tremble? And yet you want My, you want My Eden, do you? says the Lord. You want My Israel? You want My land? Was it not good enough for you to have the nations? Until My Son came. You offered Him the nations of the earth, but He took possession of Israel and He took possession of the soil. You said in your heart, I will exalt myself above the stars of God. And you said, I will climb upon the mount and I will sit. You said, I will be El-Elyon, possessor of heaven and earth. Ha! And yet today you seek to avenge.

Father, I pray today for Your will to be done. I pray today for Yeshua to manifest Himself. I pray today that the words that You have spoken would come to pass. I pray today, Lord, that You would shake this nation, but Lord that You would give us an understanding today of what You intend doing. We pray and we call to You, oh Lord our God. We call to You, King of the Earth. We call to You, mighty One. We call to You today and pray – we pray as a people together, not a thousand, not ten thousand. Hundreds of thousands and millions of people today, we declare together that there is no fear in the perfect love of God. We declare today, Israel, you are protected by the very preservation of the words of the prophets of old. You are protected because God sent His only Son to come through that land. Israel, we pray for your protection! And Lord, I pray today that every word that You have spoken would come to pass.

Demonic forces are raging. Demonic forces are raging, saying what do we do now? For there is a spirit of confusion that has set upon the people. What do we do now? For a spirit of confusion has been set upon the people. What do we do now? For we, the creator of confusion – we are the ones who create confusion – now the Lord Himself has caused the stir of confusion. What do we do now? What do we do now? And the Spirit of God says, I will arise with My people and we shall make a sound on this earth so that there will be terror with the princes of darkness. There will be terror amongst the principalities of the earth. There will be terror because of the blood that will cry out, the Blood of Christ, the Blood of Christ, the Blood of Christ. The Blood of Christ cries out against the powers of darkness!

Father, we stand before You today. We will not bow to fear. Lord, we have watched and we have waited. We just heard the Word of the Lord. Did you hear what I heard? God said together, with His people, He will stand and speak and that there will be terror amongst the princes of darkness. Terror!

What? What is this I hear about Turkey? What is this I hear about a man who says “I am God?” What is this stench that comes to Me, says the Lord, that a man who calls himself a king says, “I am no longer a king, I am a god.” And Yemen, what about you? The Queen of Sheba came from you to bring gold to Solomon. And now what of this? The Queen of Sheba honored My Solomon, My Israel. What are you doing now and what of this king that says he is a god? I say to you, it shall be a very short time and you shall find out that you are not a god. You shall find out that I am the Lord and I stand no one to say he is a god when he is not a god. Why from Russia is that one saying he is a god? I’ve already told him, I will slay him. Why in this nation do we have a Messianic man who says I am like the Messiah? No, you are not! says the Lord. No you are not, and I will show you!

John Kerry, you stand and you itch with power. You itch and you say I want more power, for I shall be the President of the United States. No, you will not! For the Spirit of God said enough! Israel is My land and Israel shall stand and I will be the God of Israel, says the Lord!

The words that came today were under a great unction that was upon me before we even started, of great spiritual warfare. I could hear and sense powers of hell gnashing their teeth with anger because someone would dare to rise up and pray with the people called the Warriors of the New Millennium. Those whom I raised up in the 90’s was never a waste of time, to pray. All of you standing watching, you know that we have entered into a realm that has touched God and removed the presence of gloating spirits of darkness. Confusion has been sent to course.

I want to get this to you as soon as possible. This is a Prophetic Alert. I stood there for five or six or seven minutes under a tremendous baptism of the Holy Spirit with fire. I could barely breathe when I got to the piano because it takes it out of you. But when I heard this about Turkey . . . (to team) do you know anything about this that was spoken about Turkey? So let’s find out. He said he’s calling himself a god – who? Whatever it is, He didn’t seem very happy about it, God. And then He got to Putin and said he’s also calling himself a god. And then He came to America and addressed someone who has a Messianic mentality and yet has opposed Israel even to the point of hatred and rage. I am so disappointed because I prophesied this President, years ago, and said after President Bush, God will give a President to America who will be an African American, but He also said, would teach America a lesson. I’m not here opposed to President Obama. He had a warning from the prophet years ago in 2010 – “If you do not love Israel, My Israel, with a captivating love, your power will be removed.” The test of his life and his administration and his legacy is present. We need to pray like we’ve never prayed before. God addressed that today and said Israel is taken care of, do not worry, because it’s His Eden. You know, I found some of the prophecy that came out absolutely fascinating. And then He spoke about Yemen and the Queen of Sheba. These are things that we need to read and pray over. Not only must you listen to it over, send it to people, send it to friends, put it on Facebook. Send out your message, “Go and listen to the Word of the Lord.” Stop listening to lies about this person. Just listen to what God is saying about our nation and about this world.

This is a week to remember. This is the first of April.

I see a king falling. I see a king falling. Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Solomon. Lord, You’re not pleased. The wall, there’s a wall being built that will not be completed, for a takeover already a plan. Iran, you have wicked plans. Your wickedness cannot be covered. I’ve seen you, says the Lord. I’ve already spoken about you. Father, I just pray You’d stop, just for a minute. There are some people that are receiving visions, and I’m not making this up, please. Some spiritual leaders mock people that have visions. Well then, you may as well mock the great prophets of old. You may as well mock Daniel. You may as well mock Joel who spoke about young men and women having visions, and they are, and I release that upon you. Don’t believe that lie. Some have been caught up and getting glimpses of stuff. Just do it! I’m not going to stop you. While the Spirit of God is present, I release you to see visions. Visions will be seen. You’ll have glimpses of the future, flashes of light.

One of the greatest and most powerful churches will rise out of Yemen, Saudi Arabia – already, Iraq, God is raising up tens of thousands. Every time ISIS kills, God says I’ll give you 100 and a thousand more. It’s not going to stop, the growth. Enough, enough.

Where the Battle is Won or Lost

Where the Battle is Won or Lost

12

27

2014

“If you will return, O Israel,” says the Lord… —Jeremiah 4:1

Our battles are first won or lost in the secret places of our will in God’s presence, never in full view of the world. The Spirit of God seizes me and I am compelled to get alone with God and fight the battle before Him. Until I do this, I will lose every time. The battle may take one minute or one year, but that will depend on me, not God. However long it takes, I must wrestle with it alone before God, and I must resolve to go through the hell of renunciation or rejection before Him. Nothing has any power over someone who has fought the battle before God and won there.

 

I should never say, “I will wait until I get into difficult circumstances and then I’ll put God to the test.” Trying to do that will not work. I must first get the issue settled between God and myself in the secret places of my soul, where no one else can interfere. Then I can go ahead, knowing with certainty that the battle is won. Lose it there, and calamity, disaster, and defeat before the world are as sure as the laws of God. The reason the battle is lost is that I fight it first in the external world. Get alone with God, do battle before Him, and settle the matter once and for all.

 

In dealing with other people, our stance should always be to drive them toward making a decision of their will. That is how surrendering to God begins. Not often, but every once in a while, God brings us to a major turning point— a great crossroads in our life. From that point we either go toward a more and more slow, lazy, and useless Christian life, or we become more and more on fire, giving our utmost for His highest— our best for His glory.

A Baby Changes Everything -Faith Hill Lyrics

Teenage girl, much too young
Unprepared for what’s to come
A baby changes everything
Not a ring on her hand
All her dreams and all her plans
A baby changes everything
A baby changes everything
The man she loves she’s never touched
How will she keep his trust?
A baby changes everything
A baby changes everything
And she cries!
Ooh, she cries
Ooh, oh
She has to leave, go far away
Heaven knows she can’t stay
A baby changes everything
She can feel He’s coming soon
There’s no place, there’s no room
A baby changes everything
A baby changes everything
And she cries!
And she cries!
Oh, she cries
Shepherds all gather ’round
Up above the star shines down
A baby changes everything
Choir of angels sing
Glory to the newborn King
A baby changes everything
A baby changes everything
Everything, everything, everything
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
My whole life has turned around
I was lost but now I’m found
A baby changes everything, yeah
A baby changes everything

The Real Reason for Christmas

And being found in fashion as a man,
he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death,
even the death of the cross.
— Philippians 2:8

Do you plan on taking the time this Christmas to tell your children or friends about the purpose of Christmas? If so, what will you tell them?
Although we usually meditate on the birth of Jesus at this time of the year, His purpose in coming to earth was not to give us the sweet picture of a baby in a Bethlehem manger. That little baby was born to die for you and for me and thus pay for the forgiveness of our sins. He was born to die on the Cross that we might be reconciled to God.
For this reason, I always told our sons when they were young, “Don’t just think of a baby in a manger at Christmastime. Christmas is about much more than that. It is about God coming to earth in human flesh so He could die on the Cross to pay for your salvation and destroy all the works of the devil in your lives! That is what Christmas is all about!”
People rarely think of the Cross at Christmastime because it is the time set aside to celebrate Jesus’ birth. But in Philippians 2, Paul connects the two thoughts. As Paul writes about God becoming a man, he goes on to express the ultimate reason God chose to take this amazing action. Paul says in verse 8, “And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.” Because today is Christmas Eve, I want to use this Sparkling Gem to discuss the real reason for Christmas, which is contained in the truths found in this verse.
Philippians 2:8 says that Jesus was “…found in fashion as a man….” That word “fashion” is the Greek word schema. This is extremely important, for this was precisely the same word that was used in ancient times to depict a king who exchanged his kingly garments for a brief period of time for the clothing of a beggar.
How wonderful that the Holy Spirit would inspire the apostle Paul to use this exact word! When Jesus came to earth, it really was a moment when God Almighty shed His glorious appearance and exchanged it for the clothing of human flesh. Although man is wonderfully made, his earthly frame is temporal dust and cannot be compared to the eternal and glorious appearance of God. However, for the sake of our redemption, God laid aside all of His radiant glory, took upon Himself human flesh, and was manifested in the very likeness of a human being.
This is the true story of a King who traded His kingly garments and took upon Himself the clothing of a servant. But the story doesn’t stop there. Jesus — our King who exchanged His royal robes for the clothing of flesh — loved us so much that He “…humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross”!
The word “humbled” is the Greek word tapeinao, and it means to be humble, to be lowly, and to be willing to stoop to any measure that is needed. This describes the attitude God had when He took upon Himself human flesh. Think of how much humility would be required for God to shed His glory and lower Himself to become like a member of His creation. Consider the greatness of God’s love that drove Him to divest Himself of all His splendor and become like a man. This is amazing to me, particularly when I think of how often the flesh recoils at the thought of being humble or preferring someone else above itself. Yet Jesus humbled Himself “…and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”
The word “obedient” tells me that this was not a pleasurable experience that Jesus looked forward to in anticipation. To humble Himself to this extent required Jesus’ deliberate obedience. As preexistent God, Jesus came to earth for this purpose. But as man dressed in flesh, He despised the thought of the Cross (Hebrews 12:2) and could only endure its shame because He knew of the results that would follow. For Jesus to be obedient as a man, He had to choose to obey the eternal plan of God.
The word “obedient” that is used to describe Jesus is the Greek wordhupakouo, from the word hupo, which means under, and the word akouo, which means I hear. When these two words are compounded together, they picture someone who is hupo — under someone else’s authority, and akouo — listening to what that superior is speaking to him. After listening and taking these instructions to heart, this person then carries out the orders of his superior.
Thus, the word hupakouo tells us that obedient people are 1) under authority, 2) listening to what their superior is saying, and 3) carrying out the orders that have been given to them. This is what the word “obedient” means in this verse, and this is what obedience means for you and me.
You see, even Jesus had to come to this place of obedience. Although He knew that He was the Lamb slain before the foundation of the world, that didn’t mean His flesh was excited about dying as the Lamb of God on the Cross. According to this verse in Philippians 2:8, Jesus had to humble Himself and become “obedient” in order to follow God’s plan. He wasn’t looking forward to the experience of death on a Cross; He made a choice to humble Himself and to go to any measure in order to accomplish the Father’s plan.
Part of the Father’s plan was for Jesus to humble Himself “…unto death, even the death of the cross.” The word “unto” is from the Greek wordmechri, which is a Greek word that really means to such an extent. The Greek word mechri is sufficient in itself to dramatize the point, but the verse goes on to say that Jesus humbled Himself unto death, “…even the death of the cross.” The word “even” is the Greek word de, which emphatically means EVEN! The Greek carries this idea: “Can you imagine it! Jesus humbled Himself to such a lowly position and became so obedient that He even stooped low enough to die the miserable death of a Cross!”
I heartily recommend that you take the time today to read the April 24Sparkling Gem in order to refresh your memory on the full process of crucifixion. It was genuinely the worst death a person could ever endure. For Jesus to humble Himself to the point of death, EVEN the death of the Cross, demonstrates how much He was willing to humble Himself to redeem you and me.
Just think of it — Almighty God, clothed in radiant glory from eternity past, came to this earth formed as a human being in the womb of a human mother for one purpose: so that He could one day die a miserable death on a Cross to purchase our salvation! All of this required humility on a level far beyond anything we could ever comprehend or anything that has ever been requested of any of us. Yet this was the reason Jesus came; therefore, He chose to be obedient to the very end, humbling Himself to the point of dying a humiliating death on a Cross and thereby purchasing our eternal salvation.
So as you celebrate Christmas tonight and tomorrow, be sure to remember the real purpose of Christmas. It isn’t just a time to reflect on the baby boy who was born in Bethlehem so long ago.
That baby was God manifest in the flesh. He was born to die for you and for me. Jesus was so willing to do whatever was required in order to redeem us from Satan and sin that He humbled Himself even unto death on a Cross!That is what Christmas is all about!

MY PRAYER FOR TODAY

Lord, I thank You for coming to earth so You could redeem me. When I think of the extent to which You were willing to go in order to save me, it makes me want to shout, to celebrate, and to cry with thankfulness. You love me so much, and I am so grateful for that love. Without You, I would still be lost and in sin. But because of everything You have done for me, today I am free; my life is blessed; Jesus is my Lord; Heaven is my home; and Satan has no right to control me. I will be eternally thankful to You for everything You did to save me!

I pray this in Jesus’ name!

MY CONFESSION FOR TODAY

I confess that Jesus Christ loves me! He demonstrated His love to me by leaving behind Heaven’s glory and taking upon Himself human flesh. And He did it for one purpose: so that one day He could go to the Cross and die for me and thus reconcile me unto God. There is no need for me to ever feel unloved or unwanted, because Jesus went the ultimate distance to prove that He loves me!

I declare this by faith in Jesus’ name!

QUESTIONS FOR YOU TO ANSWER

1. When you compare Jesus’ ultimate act of obedience to God with your own willingness to obey God in every area of your life, are you satisfied with your level of obedience to Him? Or do you find yourself falling far short of what He requires?
2. What can you do on this Christmas Eve to more fully “let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 2:5)? Are there specific ways you can show humility toward others or prefer someone else above yourself?
3. Now that you’ve read today’s Sparkling Gem, what will change in the way you talk to your children or your friends about the real purpose of Christmas?

TODAY’S TOP 5

1. Army: Bergdahl could face court-martial
(Army Times) The Army’s decision Monday to forward the investigation of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for possible court-martial means the former prisoner of war will remain on active duty and in legal limbo for months to come.
2. Afghan commander orders attacks on insurgents in Pakistan
(Stars & Stripes) The police chief in Afghanistan’s southern province of Kandahar has ordered his forces to attack Pakistani-based Tehrik-i-Taliban insurgents inside Pakistan, adding fuel to rising tensions along the countries’ shared border.
3. Rethinking Our Strategy in Iraq and Syria
(Rethinking Our Strategy in Iraq and Syria) The war against the self-styled Islamic State is beginning to look more and more like the late, unlamented war in Vietnam. The Obama administration has placed self-imposed limitations on the use of ground forces, thereby creating the kind of sanctuary that North Viet Nam represented from 1963-75. Like President Johnson, Barak Obama had pledged no ground troops, but eventually sent in “advisors” and “defensive forces” to protect the advisors bases as well as the aircraft that were supporting the host nation government’s forces who were supposed to be doing the actual fighting; albeit poorly. This looks exactly like the Vietnam War in 1964-65 that I remember watching on TV and reading about in high school.
4. Gunman who ambushed NY police also injured AF reservist
(Air Force Times) The woman reportedly shot and injured by the man who ambushed two New York police officers has been identified as Air Force Reservist Staff Sgt. Shaneka Thompson

COMMENTARY AND ANALYSIS

What Changed And What Stayed The Same: How 2014 Impacted The Veterans Community
(Stephen Carlson in Task & Purpose) 2014 has been a tumultuous year for veterans and the military. A country where many thought the war was over is back in the headlines, while another faces an uncertain end. The Department of Veterans Affairs has taken a serious black eye, and day-to-day issues such as homelessness and veterans unemployment are starting to improve. As the year comes to an end, here is a look at the issues that have affected us all.
Merry Christmas, Defense Contractors!
(Veronique de Rugy in The Daily Beast) Congress’ abomination of a defense spending bill is all about pleasing weapons manufacturers and diverting funds to useless projects.
After Peshawar, Expect Business as Usual in Pakistan
(C. Christine Fair in War on the Rocks) Last week, the Tehreek-e-Taliban-e-Pakistan (TTP or “Pakistani Taliban”) outraged the world when it attacked an Army Public School in Peshawar. The attackers sprayed bullets frenetically, killing 145 persons among whom 132 were children. Ostensibly, this slaughter was a retaliation for the Pakistan army’s ongoing security operations in North Waziristan against those elements of the Pakistani Taliban who could not be persuaded to leave Pakistan to either fight Americans and their allies in Afghanistan or kill Indians in and beyond Kashmir. Amidst the bloodshed, Pakistan and international observers alike hope that such a watershed event will jolt Pakistan out of its somnolence and take its terrorist problems seriously. However, as with most things in Pakistan, such optimists should brace for disappointment.
A Broader Definition of Security in Post-2014 Afghanistan
(Catherine Powell in the Council on Foreign Relations) Earlier this month, the United States and NATO lowered the flags over their mission in Kabul in the first of two ceremonies that mark the end of the international combat mission in Afghanistan. Over the next few weeks, foreign troops in Afghanistan will be transitioning to a training and support role.
Why the U.S. Can’t Punish North Korea
(Adam Chandler in The Atlantic) The FBI formally accused the isolated country of the Sony hack, but the White House is basically powerless to do anything to respond.

New Christmas Bible Study: The Message of the Magi – Part 2 – by Daniel Kolenda

Christ for all Nations

The Message of the Magi: Part 2

Enter

“After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was.” Matthew 2:9

The Message of the Magi

Part 2 of 3 – The Mysterious Star

This Bible Study was written by Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

Many theories have been suggested as to what the Magi might have actually seen in the sky over Israel. Some have speculated that it might have been a concurrence of bright stars, a comet or a supernova. But all of these explanations based on natural phenomena fall short in my opinion.
First, if it had been a literal “star” it would have had to defy the laws of physics (stars usually travel across the sky from east to west. But the “star” the Magi saw led them from Jerusalem to Bethlehem traveling north to south).
Second, it led them to the precise location of a certain individual house, which of course a heavenly body, millions of light years from earth, could not do. There was something very different about this star.
The Scripture doesn’t tell us exactly what is going on here. And since we are left to speculate, I might as well give a theory of my own. It is possible that what they had seen was actually similar to something witnessed hundreds of years earlier by the prophet Ezekiel. He had seen how the glory of the Lord had departed from Jerusalem. It’s interesting that Ezekiel could actually trace the movement of the departing glory as it left over the Mount of Olives (Ez. 11:22-23) much like the wise men were able to trace the moving of the star to a residential address. Could it be that what the Magi were seeing was actually the Shekinah glory of God that had once departed; now returning to Israel?
Hundreds of years earlier, Isaiah had said, “Thus says the LORD: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me, and what is the place of my rest?” (Is. 66:1) Now Isaiah’s riddle was being answered. Yes, God’s glory had returned, but not to the temple in Jerusalem. Christ’s coming introduced a new era of history where God’s presence would not dwell any longer in tents or buildings, but for the first time in history, a suitable resting place would be found for God’s glory in Christ in whom Paul says, “dwells all the fullness of the God in a human body” (Col 2:9 NLT)
Whether or not my theory is correct, the point remains true. When Jesus came into the world it was the ultimate “Shekinah” and the ultimate dwelling of God among men. No wonder multitudes of angels announced his birth and worshipped God! Such a marvel the earth had never known. No wonder of creation or of human invention could compare to the miracle that God had wrapped Himself in human flesh and made his home among us. John says that, “The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.” When we celebrate Christmas, we are literally celebrating the fact that God came to live among us. Did you hear that? The one who Solomon said, “Dwells in thick darkness” became the light of the world and the one of whom John went on to say, “and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father…” (Jn. 1:14) What Ezekiel had seen departing from Israel had returned to dwell among us.
“Christ, by highest heaven adored;
Christ, the everlasting Lord;
Late in time behold him come,
Offspring of a virgin’s womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;
Hail the incarnate Deity,
Pleased with us in flesh to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel.
Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King.”
He came to dwell among us, and He remains among us by His Spirit, never to depart again. He said, “Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). He said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). His incarnation was not a brief 33-year condescension. He remains a God/man. He has chosen to forever identify as one of us. Even now, as He sits at the right hand of the Father, He still has a human body. He still bears the scars of love that He received on the cross. He is one of us. He is for us. He is Emmanuel God with us!
That is the message of the Magi.

Be on the lookout for Part 2: “The Mysterious Star” in two days. The Live Before You Die Series will continue in January 2015

Investigation: “Factory Farms” Producing Massive Quantities of Organic Milk and Eggs

Cornucopia Institute

Dear Cornucopia members and organic stakeholders,

Our approach at Cornucopia is to not comingle our media/policy work with fundraising. But in this particular case, the results of the flyover investigation, examining factory farms operating outside the spirit/letter of the law, is so shocking that we intend to take the USDA to court.

These gigantic “farms” make a mockery of the law and difficult for legitimate organic family-scale farmers — operating ethically — to compete. It’s not right, and it’s not fair. And it’scheating you, too. Real food advocates like you understandably believe you are supporting humane husbandry and buying legitimate nutritionally superior food when you buy organic.

We are breaking from our standard approach and asking you to financially support this work so that we can aggressively and fully address this issue. We have a legal team assembled working on abuses at the USDA’s National Organic Program. And today’s Washington Post carried a big story on our investigation that we know that will end up on the USDA Secretary’s desk. With your help we will ramp up the flyover investigation and bring these scofflaw operations to justice.

Sincerely,


Mark Kastel and Will Fantle

Investigation: “Factory Farms” Producing Massive Quantities of
Organic Milk and Eggs

Regulations Not Being Enforced—Watchdog Asks
for USDA to Remove Program Management

http://www.cornucopia.org/2014/12/investigation-factory-farms-producing-massive-quantities-organic-milk-eggs/
CORNUCOPIA, WIS: In what has been called one of the largest fraud investigations in the history of the organic industry, The Cornucopia Institute, a Wisconsin-based farm policy research group, announced filing formal legal complaints against 14 industrial livestock operations producing milk, meat and eggs being marketed, allegedly illegally, as organic.

Aurora Dairy, Stratford, Texas
18,000-head, gaming the system.

After years of inaction by the USDA, Cornucopia contracted for aerial photography in nine states, from West Texas to New York and Maryland, over the past eight months. What they found confirmed earlier site visits: a systemic pattern of corporate agribusiness interests operating industrial-scale confinement livestock facilities providing no legitimate grazing, or even access to the outdoors, as required by federal organic regulations.

A photo gallery of the apparent abuses by the giant certified organic operations in question can be found athttp://www.cornucopia.org/organic-factory-farm-investigation.

“The federal organic regulations make it very clear that all organic livestock must have access to the outdoors and that ruminants, like dairy cows, must have access to pasture,” said Mark A. Kastel, Senior Farm Policy Analyst at the Wisconsin-based Cornucopia Institute. “The vast majority of these massive, industrial-scale facilities, some managing 10,000-20,000 head of cattle, and upwards of 1 million laying hens, had 100% of their animals confined in giant buildings or feedlots.”

The family-scale farmers who helped commercialize the organic food movement starting in the 1980s did so, in part, because agribusiness consolidation and control of the food supply was squeezing profit margins and forcing farmers off the land. Consumers enthusiastically made organics a rapidly growing market sector by supporting farmers and processors that were willing to produce food to a different standard in terms of environmental stewardship, humane animal husbandry, and economic fairness for farmers.

“Shoppers, who passionately support the ideals and values represented by the organic label, understandably feel betrayed when they see photos of these massive CAFOs (concentrated animal feeding operations) masquerading as organic,” Kastel added.

The organization recommends consumers consult Cornucopia’s organic brand scorecards so they can choose from the many organic brands that partner with farmers and that truly deliver on the promise of better environmental stewardship, humane animal husbandry, and economic justice for the families who produce organic food.

“Many of our dairy farmer-members have animals, they truly care for, that have names, not numbers,” Kastel added.

Cornucopia filed their first legal complaints against these industrial operations, with varying degrees of success, beginning in 2004. As a result, the largest dairy supplying the Horizon label (now controlled by WhiteWave Foods) was decertified, and the USDA placed sanctions against Aurora Dairy (producing private-label organic milk for Walmart, Costco, Target and various supermarket chains). Both WhiteWave and Aurora are still being investigated by the USDA for improprieties.

But the wheels of justice, according to Cornucopia, are now turning slowly or not at all. One example is Arizona-based Shamrock, which operates a vertically-integrated dairy in the desert outside of Phoenix that jointly manages over 16,000 organic and conventional cows. The USDA eventually confirmed the basis of a complaint filed in 2008 by the nonprofit public interest group, finding the dairy operating illegally — but not until 2011, three years after the complaint was filed. Now, more than six years later, Shamrock still has a pending appeal and is still selling milk in the Southwest undercutting ethical farmers and competitors that comply with federal organic law.

“The inaction by the USDA places thousands of ethical family-scale farmers, who are competing with a couple of dozen giant dairies, at a competitive disadvantage,” said Kevin Engelbert, a New York-based dairyman, milking 140 cows who, along with his family, was the first certified organic dairy producer in the U.S.

The Cornucopia Institute website maintains research-based scorecards rating all organic eggs, dairy products, soy foods, and several other food categories for their adherence to organic ideals, with the stated goal of “empowering consumers and wholesale buyers in the marketplace — accessing authentic food and rewarding the true heroes in the industry.”

Engelbert, who also previously served on the USDA’s National Organic Standards Board(NOSB), stated, “When serving on the NOSB, I was always reminded that the recommendations we made to the National Organic Program (NOP) had to be scale-neutral. I would like to see the Organic Food Production Act enforced on a scale-neutral basis as well.”

With enforcement of neither the letter of the law nor the intent, many traditional organic dairy farmers are in financial stress right now, with some selling their cows and exiting the industry. “Allowing these illegal dairies to continue to operate is a travesty and significantly undercuts the supply-demand dynamic that should be rewarding farmers in the marketplace and providing a decent living for our families,” Engelbert added.

Although Cornucopia was critical of the USDA’s operation of the National Organic Program(NOP) during the Bush administration, it says it finds the current conduct of the Obama administration even more “insidious.” Engelbert, Cornucopia’s board vice president, continued, “The so-called ‘Age of Enforcement’ the organic community was promised, when the new administration took over in 2009, has been anything but with regard to large-scale ‘organic’ operations breaking the law.”

During the Bush years the USDA was charged as being hostile to organic interests delaying the implementation of the law and then being recalcitrant in carrying out the will of Congress by enforcing the standards.

“Since President Obama was elected they’ve greatly expanded the budget of the NOP, added competent staff, and said all the right things,” lamented Kastel. “These people know better, but they have sided with the powerful industry lobby, the Organic Trade Association, and institutionalized corruption that started before their administration took office.”

In the chicken industry the USDA has allowed corporate agribusiness to confine as many as 100,000 laying hens in a building, sometimes exceeding 1 million birds on a “farm,” and substituting a tiny screened porch for true access to the outdoors.

Herbruck’s in Saranac, Michigan,
85,000-hens per building and none outdoors.

The loophole, “porched-poultry,” was first allowed in 2002 when the NOP director overruled organic certifiers and allowed The Country Hen, a Massachusetts egg producer, to confine tens of thousands of birds in a barn with an attached porch that might, at best, hold 5% of the birds in the main building.

The USDA staff person running the organic program at the time later waltzed through what is commonly referred to as “the revolving door,” between regulators and the industry, and went to work as a consultant for The Country Hen lobbying against outdoor access standards for poultry.

“Quite frankly, even if Miles McEvoy, who currently directs the NOP, believes that a porch, with a floor, ceiling and screened walls, constitutes ‘the outdoors,’ if only 5% of the birds have access or can fit in that space, then 95% of the others are being illegally confined,” Cornucopia’s Kastel stated.

McEvoy and the USDA’s National Organic Program have been a lightning rod for criticism, not just on their alleged inaction against illegal livestock operators but for recently changing the oversight responsibilities of the NOSB, a citizen advisory panel, and undermining powers bestowed upon it by Congress that severely restrict the use of synthetic and non-organic inputs and ingredients in the production of organic food.

In late 2013, McEvoy broke with 20 years of precedent and, unilaterally, stripped the NOSB of the ability to create their own work plans and set their agenda for addressing concerns in the organic industry. The USDA also fundamentally weakened the “sunset” procedures that require the review of synthetic and other non-organic ingredients in organic foods every five years.

“The current situation, applauded by the industry’s most financially powerful interests, and almost universally condemned by nonprofits representing farmers and consumers, is untenable,” said Jay Feldman, Executive Director of Beyond Pesticides and a current Obama administration appointee to the 15-member NOSB. “Someone needs to take responsibility for the divide in this industry which has begun seriously undercutting the credibility of the organic label and the livelihoods of ethical organic farmers.”

Some industry observers contend that even more important than organic farms and marketers adhering to the letter of the law, is meeting the expectations of consumers who are willing to pay a premium for food produced to a higher standard. Significantly, Consumers Union, publisher ofConsumer Reports magazine, recently downgraded the value of the organic seal from its highest rating due to their concerns about recent attempts by the USDA to undermine the power and independence of the NOSB.

“It is hard for us to discern whether the current policy failures start or end with Mr. McEvoy,” said Kastel. “But it’s time for someone to take responsibility and, sadly, we think an individual who is widely respected, and viewed as neutral at this point, needs to be brought in to clean up this mess.”

A photo gallery of the apparent abuses by the giant certified organic operations in question can be found at http://www.cornucopia.org/organic-factory-farm-investigation.

There is nothing in the federal organic standards pertaining to the size of any given operation.

“The organic standards are scale-neutral,” said Kastel. “However, if properly enforced the standards are scale-limiting. At some point the magnitude of these operations becomes preposterous — because their practical ability to meet minimum organic and humane livestock standards becomes impossible.”

Just like the debate over the farm bill, where limiting payments to large-scale operations has never gained traction with either political party, the problems in the organic industry appear to be bipartisan in nature.

“Follow the money,” said Kastel. “Although the food industry pretty much ignored organics when Congress passed the enabling legislation, as part of the 1990 farm bill, now that giant corporations like General Mills, Smucker’s, Kellogg, and WhiteWave have massive investments in organic pioneering brands, their lobbyists are all over the USDA making sure that the decisions that come out of the agency favor their preferred industrial model of food production.”

The prominent infographic, Who Owns Organics, can be accessed on the Cornucopia website:http://www.cornucopia.org/who-owns-organic/.

Peer-reviewed published research indicates clear nutritional advantages in consuming milk and meat from cattle that are grazed on fresh grass, including elevated levels of omega-3 fatty acids.

Eggs and chickens from birds that are allowed, as the law requires, to engage in their instinctive behaviors as omnivores in foraging on grass and insects, produce eggs that are coveted as being more nutritious and more flavorful.

“We keep expanding our flock but still can’t keep up with demand,” said Cameron Molberg, a certified organic egg producer who rotates 19,000 birds on pasture near Austin, Texas. “We are proving that this model can be highly successful in the marketplace.” Just as the Bush administration was accused of dragging out enforcement against mega-dairies, many of which were later found to be scofflaws in terms of not grazing their animals, and instead pushing them for high production in confinement, the Obama administration has allowed factory farms producing organic eggs to flourish during its tenure.

“The department’s claim that it needs more detailed regulations, specifying minimum amount of space outdoors, before they can enforce the law, is a specious argument,” Cornucopia’s Kastel affirmed. “If it was a question of whether or not these outfits were affording enough outdoor space to their birds, that would be one thing, but these are confinement operations with no, I mean zero, animals outside. They are flagrantly breaking the law!”

In addition to the published regulations, USDA Deputy Administrator Miles McEvoy issued a Policy Memorandum, on January 31, 2011, clearly stating, in terms of access to “outdoors,” that producers must provide livestock with “an opportunity to exit any barn or other enclosed structure.” Cornucopia contends that this memo clearly suggests that enclosed porches (“structures”) do not meet the legal requirements for access to the outdoors but the USDA has been unwilling to enforce their clear interpretive statement.

Cornucopia contends that consumers, who rightly assume that the animals producing their food are being treated respectfully, and consequently resulting in higher quality food, are being taken advantage of in the marketplace.

The widely respected and nationally prominent organic dairyman, Kevin Engelbert, chimed in when addressing the controversy regarding chicken production with, “If you think a porch represents true access to the outdoors, when your children or grandchildren ask to play outside allow them to do so, but note their response when you say they have to stay on the porch.”

In the case of the Horizon dairy in Paul, Idaho (WhiteWave), instead of the USDA sending its own agents to investigate complaints against the operation, the USDA sent in the same certifier that initially approved the operation to investigate alleged improprieties.

“This is just unconscionable,” said Kastel. “In this instance, the certifier, Quality Assurance International, has been implicated in a number of other improprieties. Our thorough investigation and legal complaint indicated this dairy, with no pasture, never should have been certified in the first place. The job of the USDA is to oversee the certifiers and ensure that they are doing their job. It is quite possible that, in this case, there could have been a conspiracy and/or negligence that the certifier was responsible for.”

“Although the organic oversight system can, to say the least, be improved, there are few alternatives in the commercial food stream if consumers, especially parents, want to avoid agrochemical and drug residues in their food and provide superior nutrition for their families,” said Kastel. “That’s where it becomes imperative that farmers and their customers work together to maintain the integrity of the organic label. In the meantime, Cornucopia’s scorecards provide guidance enabling shoppers to reward the true heroes in this industry.”

COMMENTARY AND ANALYSIS

‘Let The Damn Army Clean Up The Mess:’ An (Almost) Story Of Suicide
(Stephen Carlson in Task & Purpose) I nearly died by suicide in 2009. I don’t know how you can fight something like that, and maybe you can’t.
Don’t Run in the Pentagon
(Army Col. Michael Musso in Government Executive) Over the course of my 25 years of military service, I have acquired valuable lessons in leadership, time management, and organizational operations. Since soldiers are short on time, sharing these lessons with them as succinctly as possible communicates both the idea I want to get across and the value I place on their time. While the military is not the boardroom or the executive suite, fundamental ideas like these should be applicable to your own work as an executive.
Can Ash Carter Finally Tame the Defense Acquisitions Behemoth?
(Alex Haber and Jeff Jeffress in the Council on Foreign Relations) For decades, pundits and policymakers have bemoaned the Pentagon’s cumbersome, sluggish procurement processes and rampant overspending, especially compared to industry counterparts. Though these arcane protocols will be challenging to improve, the stars appear to be aligning for actual reform.
History of U.S. Weapons Proves Value of Realistic Operational Testing
(Director of Operational Test and Evaluation J. Michael Gilmore in National Defense) The purpose of operational testing is to assure the military services field weapons that work in combat.

Authorizing Military Force Must Have Limits
(New York Times Editorial Board) Nearly five months and 1,100 airstrikes into the American-led war against the Islamic State, Congress has barely begun to fulfill its constitutional war-making responsibilities. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday belatedly opened debate on legislation that would authorize the use of force, but there’s no expectation that the work can be finished before the session ends on Thursday. That means it will be put off at least until January, when the new Congress convenes.
The Obama Administration Wants a Super-Broad AUMF For the Islamic State (and Other Reactions to Yesterday’s AUMF Hearing)
(Jack Goldsmith in Lawfare) Secretary of State Kerry testified yesterday before the Senate Foreign Relations committee on the need for a new AUMF for the Islamic State (which Kerry referred to by the new moniker “Daesh,” and I will for now call “IS”). It was a revealing few hours. The Senators were well-informed and asked good questions with an unusual bipartisan flavor. Kerry was well-informed too and did his best to answer their questions. The big news is that Kerry laid the administration’s cards on the table about what it wants in an AUMF for IS. It wants quite a lot.

(Diana Ohlbaum in The Hill) In a recent column for The Washington Post, Jackson Diehl excoriates the Obama foreign policy for its “sloppy thinking” that there is no military solution to the key international challenges facing our country. “Political and military solutions are not mutually exclusive but intertwined; political solutions are often dictated by military conditions,” Diehl argues. He goes on to suggest that what’s harming our national security is the failure to take aggressive enough military action in Syria and Ukraine.
America Trades Torture for Drones
(Kathy Gilsinan in The Atlantic) The Senate’s report on CIA interrogation closes one dark chapter-and leaves another open.
Explaining Pakistan’s Confidence
(Myra MacDonald in War on the Rocks) When Lt-Gen Asad Durrani, a former head of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency, delivered a speech on Afghanistan in London last month, it was hard to miss the note of triumph. Afghanistan, he said, had already seen off two major world powers – the British Empire in the 19th century and the Soviet Union in the 20th. Now a third, the United States, was heading for the exit. For anyone who believes Pakistan’s aim in Afghanistan all along has been to turn the clock back to Sept 10, 2001 – when it exercised its influence over the country through its Taliban allies – it could almost have been a victory speech.
Where Is Putin Leading Russia?
(Stephen Sestanovich in the Council on Foreign Relations) Russian President Vladimir Putin’s annual state of the nation address on December 4 failed to answer many questions about his intentions in Ukraine and his plan for dealing with Russia’s economic estrangement from Western states, says CFR’s Stephen Sestanovich. “It was a very eclectic, even incoherent, speech,” Sestanovich says. “There was a certain evasion on his part to some of the big economic problems that the country faces.” While Putin has not acted as aggressively in Ukraine as some Russian nationalists wish, Sestanovich says, he has continued to take measures in support of pro-Russian separatists while not pursuing compromise that could end the crisis over Ukraine.

(151) JAPAN EARTHQUAKE TO TRIGGER AWAKENING [Warning word #3] (Note 505)

(151) JAPAN EARTHQUAKE TO TRIGGER AWAKENING [Warning word #3] (Note 505).

JAPAN EARTHQUAKE TO TRIGGER AWAKENING [Warning word #3] (Note 505)

This morning I begin to receive very important words and I heard him speaking again about Japan. (Note:  I first heard this word on Dec. 3, but held it to pray over it knowing He wanted me to continue to pray before release of it.  Now this morning I am moved to WRITE IT after having a vision this morning of the event (awakening to come) because of it.   This is the THIRD (3rd) earthquake warning I have received concerning Japan.

Hear these words coming now upon you for I am speaking to you to warn my people living in Japan that they need to heed this warning and earnestly pray seeking to know its origin and truthfulness.  Many of “My People” will not listen to me speaking through my Prophet/s, nor will they believe that they even speak for me.  Yet, I will turn their spirit to seek the truth for they will be greatly moved to seek me and stirred to awaken.

WARNING:  Japan is on Very Shaky Ground and is shaking daily and even sinking slowly.  There is much danger in all of Japan from the Northern most Island to the Southern reaches.  All of Japan will be affected by the coming earthquakes.  Millions are literally in very much danger as I speak and many many could perish forever because they will not listen. 

I hate Idolatry and have I not said, If you worship Idols and not me, I will move to destroy the idol, and all who worship them will suffer great loss.   I am never changing and will not change what I have said.  I cannot fail to keep my words, I would no longer be who I Am in the eyes of the World.  I am who I am and I change not.  Hold to the words of my book written and know that if I destroyed even many of my chosen Israel when they turned to idols, then I will move again in like manner on all who turn to idols.  Like I said, I HATE IDOLS and I Am a jealous God of my very nature, and will not share my glory with another.  An idol is NOTHING but wood or stone or that which cannot speak, yet men fall down to worship them.  My question I ask now: Do they who worship idols not see they answer not nor do they help in time of trouble?

I will remove them who worship idols and I will set an example in Japan because I have taken note of the extreme worship of idols, which I detest.

Many in Japan are held tenaciously by bands of traditions of idol worship and refuse to change or listen.  I warn them to turn and rend your heart of idols and serve me your only God and Creator.  I am seriously provoked by the hardness of your heart toward me as you hold to your gods of wood, stone, metal, or others, burning incense to them and offering prayers and homage to them.  I am moved in my heart toward the many thousands of young people and helpers who live in your land held by the cords of tradition and blinded by the past mistake of idol worship religion.

Japan will shake yet many will be AWAKENED.  I will stop the travesty and deception of idol worship, by destroying the very foundations of which it began and I will open the heart of Japan for me.

I am speaking to many even now to flee Japan to safety, yet you must know many will return later to help, from that number who flee out of the country.  I am preparing even now a WITNESS ARMY of helps to reach the masses of hurting.  I will move in mercy and snatch many from the shaking to stand with me.  They will stand on Solid Ground as they stand with me.  I open harts and shine in Grace Rays of Light so Bright.  Yet know this: Many refusing to hear will perish forever, because they do persist to cling to their idols.

The Earthquakes are already in the ground.  I did not send them, but they are part of the Earth.  Yet you must know, I am able to hold them in my might and power, and to restrain and protect.  This I have done now for a long time.  Know this that I will not protect idol worship now, because I love my people and desire now millions blinded to come to me.  I will reach into the shaking and take them out in mercy.

I see the big shaking coming and warn you in advance:  it will shake the very ground of Japan to its foundations. I will walk in the shaking with arms out stretched, turning things around for my people. All Japan will be greatly changed in days ahead.

If you are reading this word and I have spoken already to you previously to flee and leave for safe places elsewhere, you will see and know this word is your answer to your question about really leaving.  I the Lord will be the one to speak to each of you (not Ken Dewey) and you will know it is I who speak.

This word is an advance warning concerning a great shaking to come.  Flee its path and prepare to move to higher ground.  Seek the mountains away from low ground because much lower ground near the ocean will sink and water will overflow those areas.  Many will never rise again to be inhabited.  Flee the Low Land.  Flee to the Mountains but most of all, seek me for I am the way to escape.  I am your help and I am your only God.

[As I sit looking back at this word, shaken by its urgency I heard him speak again and say: ADD THIS CLOSING REMARK:]

“I will stand idols on their heads for all to see they cannot help you.”

********************************************************************

I have obeyed the Lord to write this word.  This is the third warning that the Lord has given to me to write concerning the coming big earthquake.  I have been moved to tears and great concern by these words.

As I received this word I heard the Lord saying to me that HE HAD HEARD THE PRAYERS OF THE MANY MISSIONARIES AND  CONCERNED AS THEY HAD CRIED OUT TO HIM FOR JAPAN TO BE SAVED.  I saw a vision of MANY ON THEIR FACES CRYING OUT FOR THE JAPANESE TO OPEN THEIR HEART TO RECEIVE HIM.  I also have seen the many years that much seed has been sown in Japan by concerned missionaries etc. and how those seeds would come up and MANY WOULD TURN TO THE LORD.  What has seemed like a impossibility (to change the Japanese from Idols to Jesus) to many who have gone to Japan to preach the Gospel, I hear him saying now that they will see Him move to open the hearts of thousands (very many) to the Gospel.  Japan will experience A GREAT AWAKENING and a multitude will RISE TO RECEIVE THE LORD AND BE SAVED.
