April 25, 2012 journal, this week Hallelujah Acres shows a big hamburger with horns, referring to the devil's diet. This reminds me of my painting of the tree of life and the tree of death both on one canvas. I am quoting George Malkmus because I believe what he is saying is true for God's diet from Genesis 1;29, "The leaves of the tree are for our meat." If you want to help fix the abomination medical mess then begin eating a biblical diet. This is the most important information coming from Hallelujah Acres in my opinion. "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour. Whom resist steadfast in the faith." (I Peter 5:8-9) Those who follow my writings know that I believe the Bible to be the only source of true knowledge on planet earth. "To the law and to the testimony if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." (Isaiah 8:20) I also believe that man isn't as smart as he thinks he is: "For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. Therefore let no man glory in men." (I Corinthians 3:19-21) Sadly, and in most instances, academia accepts the wisdom of the world over the wisdom of God. For example, with regard to the origin of man, the Bible tells us God created man (See Genesis 1:1, 26 -27, 2:7) as well as this earth and every-thing in and upon it. "All things were made by him and without him was not anything made that was made." (John 1:3) Academia on the other hand tells us man originated with a "big bang" when some dead minerals collided eons and eons ago, and that this entire earth and everything in and upon it originated from natural causes and without any assistance from God. Sadly, in the academic world, those who believe in creation are ostracized while those who believe in evolution are promoted and their teachings almost worshiped. And with regard to the origin of man, what are our children being taught in our public schools by their degreed teachers - God's truth or man's wisdom? Here's another example. In this 21st century in which we live, most people listen to and follow the advice of degreed nutritionists and dieticians who tell them what they should eat in order to be properly nourished. These degreed nutritionists and dieticians control the foods served in our schools, hospitals, prisons, nursing homes and to our military. Then we have degreed doctors who tell us what we need to do to rid ourselves of all the physical problems we are experiencing as a result of following the dictates of the degreed nutritionists and dieticians. Next we have degreed pharmacists who prepare the drugs these degreed doctors prescribe in order to cover up the symptoms being experienced as a result of following the dictates of the degreed nutritionists and dieticians. Finally we have laws that protect these degreed people when fellow citizens do not get well and die after following their dictates. And what is the cost of all this false information? We are currently spending over $2.7 trillion annually on what is called "health care" while the cost of health care is forecast to double in coming years. If the Supreme Court does not strike down "Obama Care", every man, woman, and child in America will be forced into a system controlled by these degreed individuals-a system that has already proven it to be an abject failure! Can I prove the current system is a failure? I believe I can... The Health Of The American People-To make my point, let's take a look at the health of the American people, those who have been nourishing their bodies according to the dictates of nutritionists and dieticians. Then let's take a look at the results being obtained by those who go to the doctors and take their prescribed drugs in an effort to recover from their infirmities. Friends, it's not a pretty picture: Cardiovascular diseases affect 80% of all Americans. 26 million Americans suffer with diabetes. (In addition, an estimated 79 million U.S. adults have pre-diabetes) 77% of the adult population sufferers from arthritis or rheumatic disorders Over 25 million Americans suffer from asthma, bronchitis or emphysema 16 million suffer from ulcers 10 million are migraine sufferers Over 50% suffer chronic digestive disorders 80 million suffer from allergies 22 million suffer mental illness 98% of our population has bad teeth, and 31 million have no teeth at all Some 70% are overweight and 80 million are classified as obese 90% of our children cannot pass a minimum physical fitness test. For a close-up look at the health of the American people, take note of the number of prayer requests in your church for the healing of God's people, Christians who are just as sick and experiencing physical problems to the same percentages as the non-Christian community. We live in a sick nation and attend a sick church - why? Why Are The American People So Sick? With all the degreed people involved in teaching the American people how to nourish their physical bodies, and with all those degreed doctors attempting to repair the bodies of the sick, and with all the money being spent on drugs and on so-called health care - why are the American people so sick? My answer to that question is: "Because we have been following and listening to the teachings of this world, rather than listening to and following the teachings of God and His Word, the Bible." God says the problem is this: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." (Hosea 4:6) Yes my friend, rather than listening to God and the knowledge He has provided us in His Word, the Bible, we have sought the wisdom of this world of which God says is "Foolishness"! (See I Corinthians 3:19) Satan's Deception-Satan's first attempt to deceive man took place in the Garden of Eden some 6,000 years ago according to biblical history. And what did Satan use to tempt Eve so many years ago? Satan used food! Satan's first attempt to deceive man was getting man to eat something God told him he shouldn't eat. And the penalty for listening to Satan rather than to God regarding what should and should not be eaten was a heavy one - death! "Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die." (Genesis 3:1-3) Satan's response to Eve was "Ye shall not surely die" (Genesis 3:4), and guess what? Eve believed Satan, went against God's word, and ate of that forbidden fruit. The consequences: Sin entered the world and man was separated from God. (Read the complete account in Genesis 3:1-24) Ever since Satan's deceptive victory over man in the garden, Satan has been using food as his primary tool to deceive man - yes, to this very day! Think about this for a moment: If you are a believer in Christ, did not Satan attempt to deceive you in an effort to keep you from coming to Christ? But you fought your way through that deception, defeated Satan, and became a child of the King. Hallelujah! So Satan lost that battle, but he is not done with the believer yet. Satan's next goal is to prevent that believer from serving Jesus, by destroying their physical body. And his tool? Food! Sit down for a meal in most Christian homes today and what is on the table and over what do we pray God's blessing? "Satan's alternative diet" (SAD)! Go to a church fellowship and see what they serve. Is it not barbeque ribs, southern fried chicken, desserts oozing with sugar and washed down with soft drinks loaded with sugar and caffeine? Now compare what is being served in your home and church with what God told us we should eat in Genesis 1:29: "And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb (VEGETABLE) bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the FRUIT of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat (FOOD)." Proper Fuel For Your Automobile Most people wouldn't think of pouring sugar-laden sweet tea or a soft drink into the fuel tank of their automobile! Why not? Because they know their car was designed by its designer to run on a certain grade of gasoline and if they were to put a sugar-laden liquid into the gas tank it would not run right, harm the engine, and possibly destroy it. Change the fuel and place into the fuel tank the proper grade and octane of gasoline and the car will run right. It's that basic and that simple. People are aware of this necessity if their car is going to run right and so they follow the instruction book as to what grade of gasoline they place into their automobile no matter the cost. Well, God designed our bodies to run on a certain grade or octane of fuel, and when we follow the instructions found in the Bible for proper body fuel, our bodies start running as God designed - physical breakdown ceases and we don't get sick anymore. When we put the wrong fuel into our bodies it causes pinging and knocking (physical breakdown), and when we change the fuel from the world's fuel to God's fuel, pinging and knocking ceases and our bodies begin to function as God designed. Friends, it really is that simple and basic. Is There A Better Way To Fuel Our Bodies? Is there a better way to fuel our bodies than the world's way? You betcha! And Hallelujah Acres has found that way! For over 20 years we have been attempting to bring Christians back to nourishing their bodies the way God designed them to be nourished, using Genesis 1:29 fuel. In the early days preachers and lay people alike severely criticized what we were teaching because they had been programmed by the world's system. But gradually a few Christians listened to the health message we were proclaiming and changed their diets. The result? People started getting well! They recovered from all kinds of physical problems - from the normalization of blood pressure, the elimination of arthritic pain, no longer needing insulin, even cancers simply going away! All the while, energy was increasing, brain fog was disappearing, weight was normalizing, and so much more. Testimonies of these almost-miraculous healings started to spread throughout the Christian community from Christian to Christian and church to church! The number of people adopting God's diet began to increase - slowly at first - but gained momentum as years passed. Today, we have millions of Christians around the world on The Hallelujah Diet! Through the years, tens-of-thousands of Christians have written to share with me that after they made the diet change from Satan's diet to God's diet, they recovered from over 170 different physical problems - and they don't get sick anymore. You can read thousands of these testimonies here. Has Satan Been Devouring Your Health? If you are experiencing physical breakdown, the chances are extremely high that the reason you are experiencing these physical breakdowns is because you have been following the teachings of this world. You have been fueling your body with the world's SAD diet, rather than nourishing your body with God's Genesis 1:29 foods. Also, if you are not getting well from your numerous infirmities, it no doubt is because you have been following the world's system of using drugs and the advice of this world's doctors as to how to recover from the physical breakdowns you are experiencing. The following verse tells of the results the world's system was producing 2,000 years ago as well as the results the world's system is obtaining to this very day. "And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse." (Mark 5:25-26) As long as man continues to follow the world's way of nourishing their bodies and dealing with the physical problems that result, these results will remain the same into the future. If the Supreme Court does not rule Obama's health care plan unconstitutional, the current health care plan that has already proven to be so ineffective, dangerous, and expensive, will be the health care plan all Americans will be forced to become a part of and pay for into the distant future. "Be sober, be vigilant; because your advisory the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour. Whom resist steadfast in the faith." (I Peter 5:8-9) Is There A Better Way? Hallelujah Acres is a Christian ministry that for the past 20 years has been teaching health from a Biblical perspective! Hallelujah Acres is trying to help the Christian community (and anyone else who will listen) realize that God's Original Diet - the "GOD" diet if you will, as found in Genesis 1:29 - is God's perfect plan for the nourishment of the human body. Multitudes have made the switch from the world's diet to God's diet and experienced the cessation of their physical and psychological problems, and they don't get sick anymore, while life and serving Jesus becomes an increasingly exciting and healthy adventure. Next week we will take a long look at the SAD diet (what Rhonda calls "Satan's Alternative Diet") and learn why it creates havoc in the bodies of Christians as well as non-Christians alike. Trust you will join us next week for another exciting and informative Hallelujah Acres Health Tip". by Jo-"WOW! Well said, follow the world and what they do and you will reap the consequences. We are brainwashed to think the SAD diet is normal. The lunch at school is full of fatty grease, (And pink slim) fried foods and chocolate milk to top it off. The term "Health Care" should be changed to, go to your "disease care/drug promotion" doctor and hope you come out without more problems". The Autism Epidemic and Disappearing Bees: A Common Denominator? Dr Brian Moench, Truthout: "On a recent front page of The Salt Lake Tribune, a frightening, oversized headline read, 'Highest rate in the nation, 1 in 32 Utah boys has autism.' Less well publicized, another national story ran the same day: 'New pesticides linked to bee population collapse.' If you eat food and hope to do so a few years from now, this should be equally frightening. A common denominator may underlie both stories." Monsanto Is Bad for the Bees and Bad for Us- Mark Karlin, BuzzFlash at Truthout: "Rather than risk restrictions on GMO crops and mega-toxic pesticides such as Monsanto's Roundup, Monsanto purchased the company looking into saving bee colonies ... In short, a company that was independently looking at the collapse of bee colonies and believed that pesticides and GMO development may be contributory factors is now owned by the primary multinational company that creates those products likely contributing to the bee die-off." Proverbs 9;7 He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot. 8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee. 9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning. 10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. 11 For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased. 12 If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it. "Wise Or wisdom, a moral rather than an intellectual quality. To be "foolish" is to be god-less" (Psa 14:1; compare Jdg 19:23; 2 Samuel 13:13). True wisdom is a gift from God- "10And Amnon said unto Tamar, Bring the meat into the chamber, that I may eat of thine hand. And Tamar took the cakes which she had made, and brought theminto the chamber to Amnon her brother. 11And when she had brought them unto him to eat, he took hold of her, and said unto her, Come lie with me, my sister. 12And she answered him, Nay, my brother, do not force me; for no such thing ought to be done in Israel: do not thou this folly. 13And I, whither shall I cause my shame to go? and as for thee, thou shalt be as one of the fools in Israel. Now therefore, I pray thee, speak unto the king; for he will not withhold me from thee. 14Howbeit he would not hearken unto her voice: but, being stronger than she, forced her, and lay with her." Now the government has outlawed prayer in the military- Then why do we need chaplains in the military? Replace them with psychology doctors. Believe in the Lord (Yesu) Christ and thou shalt be saved.
