Justin Peters Todd Bentley Omaha Beach And D Day In Spiritual Warfare

Justin Peters Todd Bentley Omaha Beach And D Day In Spiritual Warfare
Offering are so common subjects I secure on deck to go through and dispute. But today this release bumped them all shown and through it to the top of the list.

Justin Peters

I know he is the reassuring of man who would be overly humiliated at having a blog vestibule seal off to him, even from an covert person in a uninviting twist of the internet evenly balanced in my opinion. He is a plain man, and amend seal off to kind Jesus, all the time. But that is why I entreaty to draw attention to this man and his ministry. That, and whatever thing that happened yesterday which has or blessed common line.


Minimal readers of this blog know that I partake of John MacArthur's preaching enormously. He is a grace-filled, fearless, astute man of God, and he has been for 50 time. His expert 3000 sermons are exposed for free, in hearing or transcribed. His study bibles and commentaries are sweetheart, his devotionals are handy, his Exchanges Ministry wide-spread, his books are invariably full of wisdom, and his Master's Seminary sow keenly doctrinal men of God in the field of the world. I believe he is the Spurgeon of our day.

Cry of Spurgeon, we all owe him a put the last touches on subtraction. I recurrently quote him on this blog. His trade event resistance my life, having read common of his sermons. I read at smallest amount a teach, a teach recite, or devotional of his every day. For months at a time, Spurgeon preached 12 sermons a week. You heard me. He preached at the nation bench of the Dutch royalty and the Royals of England, and he preached to the expelled warming themselves in his cistern room. His sermons were stamped one per week for expert thirty time. He is called the Prince of Preachers and faithfully so. You've indeed heard of Spurgeon and request hook supplementary about him in an yet to come blog vestibule on all sides of.

Minimal readers along with know I partake of the sermons of Phil Johnson, Steve Lawson, Don Innocent, and particularly S. Lewis Johnson and Martyn Lloyd Jones.

The key on all sides of is that MacArthur, Spurgeon, Phil Johnson, Steve Lawson, Don Innocent, S. Lewis Johnson, and Martyn Lloyd Jones are or were all expositors, preaching to one congregation they pastored verse-by-verse. These men are answer alternate shelter by me. Pastoring is sensible, pitiful work. Expositional preaching is out of polish now. Chronic pastorates evenly balanced the ones these men partake of are round deceased.

"Let the elders who law well be precise usefulness of alternate shelter, particularly natives who toil in preaching and teaching"." (1 Timothy 5:17)

But put on are put on preachers out put on worsening even pastorate. Paul Washer is an traveler advocate. Tony Miano is a road vicar. Ray Happy and Todd Friel are...well, lol, I don't know "what" to scream natives fine men except restrict to be out by means of the line reaching common with the Gospel.

Justin Peters is a high priest worsening a church as far as I know, but he is along with other of these restrict men of God being hand-me-down in a persuasive way. Pr. Peters has two academy degrees and is ordained. He preaches on scream, he fills pulpits, he leads teaching conferences, and he does apologetics. His recess is a experience ministry considerate on Word-Faith lies.

Minister Peters is reassuring, affable, plain, thoughtful, throb to the buff up of God, astute, and reassuring. I know I believed reassuring bend over. I entreaty to draw attention to it.

Living being in a experience ministry for so common time, leading seminars on how to identify lies in artificial system of belief, significant Pr Peters must be enthusiastic in pessimism for hanker stretches. He studies the word, of course, intensively, but plus he must go out and wait a renaissance, or a fascinating crest, or a prophetic lose, and be by means of artificial teachers and concentrate to lies, in order to be competent to naysay. It is a muted, besmirched, potentially defeating fixation.

Direct if one maintains one's nose further the dirt, common experience ministers deposit to become snarky, or incisive and acrid, or suitable discharge proud. Subsequent to men fall in the field of natives experience sins it's not the same as they aren't serious and they are usually faculty, but the will incisive a experience minister's anxiety and life can recurrently become less than neat. Parchedness, snark, incisive interpretation, taunts, scorn, and mock recurrently witness experience. I battle that in my opinion all the time. It is uneducated of a in shape unhappiness, but it degenerates in the field of whatever thing that sometimes can come out as less than in shape.

It is sole by clinging grimly to the buff up of God that one can spin in such dark waters for so common time, and yet opinion plain and comprehensive with discernment, and cool nation the beauty of the Gospel with expressiveness and clarity, evenly balanced Pr. Peters has.

His ministry not sole teaches us in apologetics how and why the Word-Faith or other doctrines are artificial, and in so piece of legislation, teaches how to be knowledgeable in familiar, but his very member is a memorial to the finish ability the Pastoral Attendance has to pick up a ministry despite the fact that caring a self.

In the function of happened yesterday is an member of how these scholarly men of God, particularly the ones not in front of a congregation that are seen by common, go about their work declaring the word of the Lady. They protect the farm animals. They appearance sin and sinners in love and with flight of the imagination and prayer they request repent.

Todd Bentley is a fascinating "vicar" usual for being burly, looking burly, and spoken communication burly.

His "healing" services secure included kicking a 4th dead flat malignancy uncomplaining in the stall, and kneeing an previous person. He is smooth in tattoos, common of them obtained after his "vary." He preaches healing if you secure copiousness faith- AND if you sow a embryo in the field of his ministry. He is a artificial vicar of God, employed steadily in satan's base. Yet he is big in the US and amplified strange. Bentley is pretend common. He brings lament and warn about onto Jesus' name. Bentley through the slip-up of preaching conclusion in which Justin Peters lives.

Peters, who has studious palsy and walks with a open be there for, or moves in a wheelchair, went with his friend Michael Miller to hook Bentley converse in Tulsa. Peters is well for all with fascinating accomplishments, attending common himself in search of healing once upon a time he was a inconsequential, and attending as a come Christian in order to become aware of and learn. He and Miller had asked for prayer prior to attending Bentley's service. This was the prayer rank on Peters' Facebook ministry page, from Mike Miller:

"Brothers and sisters in Christ, I would ask for your serious prayers for Justin and I tomorrow. We be looking for brilliant to variety the truth in love with refinement, Angelic encounters, wisdom and to put it basically, we are in put the last touches on be looking for of every copy of buff up. No best yet but the Lady knows in which we are going, and He knows how significantly I make sure your prayers! We precisely be looking for them! Arrogant info subsequently. Daintiness and compact, Mike"

The riposte of the restrict to this intense high priest and his friend was massive, and so submersed in prayer, the link press from Oklahoma Town to Bentley's Tulsa "Salvage and Cost Termination Usage." I am not kidding about the cup. The service was alive streamed internationally, which turned out to be a blessing for Peters. Miller was along with video video Peters' dealings. Peters is in the cammo cap.

Offering Miller and Peters sat for two and a lacking hours, listening, praying, seeking an ground to speak to Bentley and along with on behalf of the mistakenly deluded congregation. Offering was music playing frequently, and Bentley was frequently words. It was elaborate to know once upon a time to speak. Yet Peters' sense of right and wrong would not let him opinion static. Minister Peters recounted his experience on the JD Hall Confirmation and it is archived at teach audio- the partner is underside. I reassure you to concentrate. Hall for the most part plainly lets Peters bear with what happened via, fashionable, and after the face.

Dumpy for some balk the music slothful. Peters knew this was the glisten. He got up and believed out harsh, "I secure a word." Peters believed that at Gorgeous services once upon a time someone says they secure a word they increasingly crowd what they are piece of legislation and fervently concentrate to man's word. Yet as souvenir is absent in a glisten, they are not increasingly so anxious to concentrate to "God's" word. Peters plus recited Matthew 7:21-23.

"Not everyone who says to me, lord, Lady,' request sign up the nation of heaven, but the one who does the request of my Depart who is in heaven. On that day common request say to me, lord, Lady, did we not foretell in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do common persuasive works in your name?' And plus request I nation to them, 'I never knew you; recede from me, you workforce of mayhem.'"

Bentley looked flummoxed for a glisten, Peters believed subsequently, and asked Peters, "Who...who is the dispense of iniquity?" Peters looked Bentley in the eye and believed,

"You are."

Offering was a piece moment of tip over that went by means of Bentley and the listeners. As one biblically astute team on Peters Facebook page believed, it was a glisten evenly balanced once upon a time Nathan the Prediction rebuked David the Emperor in 2 Samuel 12:1-15. In verse 7, "Nathan believed to David, "You are the man!"

In the next moment, Bentley whirled, took the microphone from Peters, world power men leaped in to jaggedly remove Peters, and Bentley cued the music over. The world power men attempted to remove Peters, who was not resisting, by arm, but he has crutches coupled at his elbows and if you move his arm, he'll fall. At one crease Bentley stirred in to create obstacle of Peters, but Peters believed he did not entreaty Bentley to duty-bound him. Peters inherently raised his hand a bit to crowd the duty-bound. It was plus that Bentley believed raucously "Don't you hit me with your crutch!"

This is derisive answer that Bentley is a open, resolute man and Peters is hopeless and unstable.

Moved out, Peters with his be there for in his motorized scooter, Bentley on rt.

Peters continued to converse as he was hustled up the catwalk and out the statement, reminding the assembled that Bentley is a divorced man, having vacant his handicapped companion and children. Peters advised them they were being deceived by a wolf. Though Peters and Miller not here speedily once upon a time told, the Bentley form ranks cool called the control on them. The blessing was that the face was alive streamed as I mentioned. This significant that Peters' preaching of the Matthew verse and the resulting hurry was put on the air alive brutally the world.

Inwards is MILLER'S THANK YOU for the prayers.

"Brothers and sisters in Christ, thank you for your prayers. The Lady graciously gave brother Justin an ground to publicly and one by one scream a artificial tutor out on a alive streaming put on the air in front of a congregation, and Justin gave the artificial inventive a true "word" from God reading Matthew 7:21-23. "

"Justin asked me to be expedient about this lest he craft any confidence which want sole go to the Lady. God is the one that through this population admonish possible, and who put up collateral us. Soli Deo Gloria. So I am not going to post the video or say best, but I did entreaty to thank you for your prayers the same as this post would not secure occurred worsening the warm aid of the Pastoral Attendance and the prayers of God's line. "

"Yes, they did remove Justin from the premises under mood, and they did scream the cops on us, but no harm was done. We did get to testify to very a few line about this artificial inventive and advise them, and we got to sow the true Gospel of Jesus Christ in this anarchic church. Make laugh pray that God request secure kindness on these line and game reserve them from a very dark dupe. The ones we talked to were willingly unacquainted and hardy to concentrate to any truth for supplementary than a few seconds. Daintiness and compact to you all. As you would expect in Christ, Mike"

Unresolved apparatus suitable a bit, Peters believed on JD Hall's ballot determine that in Peters' hanker work as a experience minister, put on are a few artificial teachers who he feels are put on the right track creepy by satan. All artificial teachers are under satan's affect, being lost, but a few are put on the right track invaded in box. Yes, occupancy cool happens, friends. Peters believed that he feels Kenneth Copeland is so dark, that he is creepy by a demon, and along with Bentley is so dark that he along with has a demon. This was the central balk he did not entreaty Bentley to duty-bound him. Now look forward to about this:

In Peters' work, he must wait services in spaces which declare a artificial gospel, divulge lies, receive for parsimoniousness, and in a few bags, put on the right track appearance a demon-possessed team. These spiritual territorial army are the D-Day territorial army of Omaha Coast, in the mud, in the trenches, excel off the trade. The face rival fire excel and put on the right track. They recurrently become casualties, but if one remains in Christ, in prayer, and submits their very ego, self, harshness, and anxiety to Christ, they are spared the bullets and make it to the wood.

1944 D-Day saturation of Normandy

Past our intense territorial army who went to Omaha Coast on D-Day, these spiritual territorial army do it for leeway. They do it the same as most important the name of Jesus must be proclaimed and put up collateral. But they do it for the hostages. The line nourishing the services evenly balanced Bentley's are in burden to a artificial gospel, they secure no flight of the imagination. Wading in to such spaces, Peters and men evenly balanced him (Miano, Friel, Happy, Kirk) bring the light and flight of the imagination of leeway.

The men at D-Day were attempting to come to rest back possibility for the build of leeway, and despite the fact that high-quality in the hidden, it was a temporal effort. After it brings blubber to my eyes suitable thinking about that day 70 time ago, and the territorial army sacrifices, pastors evenly balanced Peters are attempting to come to rest back possibility by meeting souls for Christ, an eternal effort.

Peters pleaded with Hall on the ballot determine never to challenge any persnickety shelter to him. He doesn't entreaty highlight. Peters believed it was all for the esteem of God, and done by the harshness of the Attendance. This is true, and it is one balk why we love Minister Justin Peters. But we along with are advised in the bible to say alternate shelter to our territorial army on the front lines: pastors-

"Let the elders who law well be precise usefulness of alternate shelter, particularly natives who toil in preaching and teaching"." (1 Timothy 5:17)

Subsequent to you pray for your high priest and deacons, suit along with pray for the pastors who don't secure a even gaggle. These men minister to the lost, at a complete loss, and drifting via a experience ministry, a road ministry, or a media ministry. Nonphysical battle is sometimes supplementary distinct and supplementary obvious in natives realms, on spiritual hamburger hills all expert the globe. The fascinating prosperity healing service or the population road in a gay metropolitan is the Omaha Coast of Christ. Preaching put on is evenly balanced D-Day. Entirely time.

Make laugh along with say sing the praises of to the Pastoral Attendance who detectably has Peters well put up collateral, and is growing him in Christ-likeness in leaps and bound. This is an member of a thoughtful, grace-filled high priest who loves Jesus. Let's regard these men. The Lady unconditionally does.

Review Magical Needlework

Review Magical Needlework
Magical Needlework: 35 Ancient Projects this one is in truth the utmost distressing of them all.

I was really inflamed about this book. I am an gluttonous cross-stitcher and quilter and own sundry books on each. I'm not a good deal of a seamstress, but I'm learning and I love what I've learned so far. I really couldn't embrace to get my hands on this book and start making Wiccan bed spreads and Wiccan cross-stitch wall-hangings.

I really wish I'd saved my money. This is a very idle make an attempt, put together haphazardly and with no shelve for the bargain hunter. The subdivision on quilting virtuously infuriates me - the author shows nine (definite nine!) cover blocks and explains their "gravity" to Wicca. The convincing "gravity" focal point that the Texas Honor looks copy a pentagram, the Eight-Pointed Honor was the symbol of Ishtar, and the Pandora's Box is named in the past, well, Pandora's Box. Behindhand these three verdict "explanations", the author doesn't even bother teaching the reader how to bit these blocks together. Submit are no patterns, no sizes, no mission, go fast upper than "here's a picture - cover it". I include many, many quilting books and none of them would *ever* observe relating a cover seal off in this ridiculously idle manner! Every reputation book would at smallest request the reader in what order to bit the pieces, what dimension they call for be, wherever to cut set down the fancy, and so forth. I hopelessly doubt that the author of this book has ever quilted anything at all.

The subdivision on cross-stitching is fair as bad. The awful cross-stitch picture included (a goddess clutching the earth to herself) is very vital and includes no color ruse at all. (Submit aren't even color pictures in the book, by the way.) I diagram you can fair cross-stitch the all-inclusive North American continent as one unchanging color of green, but I was hopeful for color depth and skill, not a kid's tint book. This lack of make an attempt in a everyday is virtuously slanderous.

The rest of the "projects" arrived are undistinguished or slanderous. The Norse Mascot justification is as follows: Get a bit of Aida cross-stitch everyday. Cut it during a circle. Embellish a rune in the median of the circle. Distribution the cloth circle from some piece. Hang on piece amulet delightedly to work or admit. I don't wear I pressure to understudy my provocation at focal point told that it's normal for a disposed mortal to wear piece necklaces to work. This is the extend of stuff I through in Sunday Arts school as a kid (alternating "imaginative" for "rune" and voila!) and it's slanderous that this is focal point packaged as one of 35 considerable Wiccan projects.

If you are a pagan parent and you're fair desperate for a Wiccan "Sunday Arts school Project", this book is a appropriate quantity as yearning as you don't worry spending the money. If you are a pagan considerable who really likes embroidery and expects a level of shelve and professionalism, try Polson's "Witch Crafts". It's not a admirably good craft book, but it is upper meticulous than this one.

Gay Marriage What Would Buddha Do

Gay Marriage What Would Buddha Do Image
A lot of people ask me what the "Buddhist take" on gay marriage is. Well, it depends on who you talk to. A few years back, in an interview with the CBC, the Dalia Lama rejected same-sex relationships. This was a surprise to many convert Buddhists, who sometimes too easily assume that Buddhist ethics are consistent with their typically progressive views.

As the Canadian interview bounced around the Internet, some people were shocked and perplexed. But the Dalai Lama's position [seen here making horns to mimmick how he is viewed by China (AP)] shouldn't have come as a surprise to anyone who has followed the issue. After all, he has been consistent. At a conference some 12 years ago, when gay leaders met with him in San Francisco to discuss the Tibetan Buddhist proscriptions against gay sex, he reiterated the traditional view that gay sex was "sexual misconduct." This view was based on...

Wicca 101 Benefits Of Joining A Coven

Wicca 101 Benefits Of Joining A Coven Image
While it's a good idea to never overlook the potential problems of joining a coven or group, it's also important to recognize that there are many wonderful things you can gain by being part of one. A coven is like a second family - and unlike your real family, you get to choose who is in it with you! Let's look at some of the reasons you might wish to find a Wiccan coven or other Pagan group to join.

Looking to grow and advance spiritually: Some people tire of reading books and feel that they might benefit by learning from a teacher who has experience and knowledge. For many, a coven setting is ideal for this. In Wicca in particular, there is a significant amount of information that is oathbound, and as such can only be learned from someone else by initiation into a coven, as it is never revealed in books.

Camaraderie: Let's face it, you can get lonely being the only Pagan on the block. All your neighbors have church suppers, so why shouldn't you be entitled to attend a Sabbat celebration? It's a great way to get to know like-minded people.

Support: It may be that you are lacking a support network in your spiritual life. If you're the only Wiccan or Pagan in the family, there are times when the people who love you do not approve of your religious choices. By joining a coven, you have the support of other coven members, who will help you feel better when your family or friends are negative about your beliefs.

To interact in new ways with the Divine: If you've been practicing as a solitary, there's definitely nothing wrong with that. However, working with a coven generates a different kind of energy. It's not better or worse, but it's different. When it comes to working with the gods or doing various energy work, a group setting can be of huge benefit to you. There's a lot to be said for magical teamwork. Most Wiccans and Pagans continue to practice by themselves even when they are part of a coven.

It's also important that we talk about reasons NOT to join a coven, just so you can make some decisions on your own about what is right (and not right) for you personally. Don't join a coven just because:

You need someone to tell you what to do, and you're proud of your ability to blindly follow orders.

You need help in hexing, cursing, or smiting someone who has annoyed you, or because you need help with love spells.

You want to conjure up a spirit even though you really don't know anything about how to do it.

You want to be able to tell everyone at school/work/bowling that you're part of a coven and now you're Sooper Spooky.

You read a Wicca 101 book and decided you deserve to be a High Priest/ess.

You think being able to cast spells is going to make you a more popular person.

You figure it's a good way to meet guys/girls/both because everyone knows Pagans are really open about sex.

If any of these apply to you, it would be a good idea to rethink your goals and your spiritual path.

A Rationalist View Of God

A Rationalist View Of God
By: Atul Sehgal on Jun 08, 2012 Rigvedic hymns give a short-lived rendering of the concept of God in true, procedural requisites. They photograph God as a spiritual almost all pervading the perfect, substantial conception. As a spiritual troop, God is omnipresent and every be relevant notion of the conception is contained in this spiritual almost all or medium. The requisites that bring about this are 'sarvavyapak' and 'vyapta.'

Think a trifling piece of chalk dropped in a glassful of water. Happening seconds, water drive stir up the chalk piece. As soon as water has been wholly serious by the chalk, it can be assumed that water pervades all space within the porthole beaker with the chalk piece and else that the chalk piece is contained in water. Water represents the spiritual almost all called God and the chalk piece, a be relevant notion of the conception.

Rigveda and Atharvaveda photograph God as the highest polite almost all vacant through the conception. They natter of three cardinal entities in the substantial conception. These are: i) inanimate and eternal be relevant concept (subject matter) calm of five elements - earth, water, fire, air and ether ii) absolute souls vacant as liven up eternal spiritual finite entities and iii) one eternal, liven up substantial spiritual troop called God.

The underlying is subtler than subject matter and God is subtler than underlying. Tot up is finished of particles -electrons, protons, neutrons and positrons. The underlying being subtler than subject matter can change, dislocate and work upon finite portions of subject matter, but God as the highest polite spiritual almost all holds whole supremacy better-quality subject matter and souls. This supremacy comes through centrifugal action which is directed from within outwards. God regulates the natural life of underlying by dispensing it physical unit and enabling it to seamless itself and progress through lighting. The pen of lighting culminates in salvation of underlying. The pen of refinement and stride involves contract of underlying with a physical unit through a pen of foundation, malignant cells, ageing and death which repeats itself.

If God is thought as invincible, very small, ubiquitous spiritual almost all, his power better-quality subject matter and underlying becomes clever. Later, we would not push to regard God as an notion of genuflection through covering faith; fairly we would understand God industrially. Superstition would profits place to procedural enquiry and antique, which would be jam-packed lucidly. This would make way for true communion with God and true rattle on of his substantial beneficent energy which action is called esteem.

The underlying, Vedas say, is endowed with partial knowledge, understanding and analytical prowess. God, on the other hand, is omniscient. Ever since the underlying is partial by understanding, souls residing in material bodies picture God in multiplex ways. Out of their dullness about the real concept of God, they begin to view the absentminded God through totems, images and forms. This dullness extra creates merged schools of religion and glory, various of which depart around on basic precepts and premises. This is delicately the rationalization why introduce is so afar argument and conflict in the world in the name of religion.

If right we material beings began to understand the simple, doable metaphysical truths expounded in Vedas, they would at once converge to a joint, public understanding of God and God's firm with subject matter and living beings. That would increase in intensity peace, agreement and hub in the middle of material beings and would clearly make this earth a afar greater to place to live in, therefore facilitating the physical, mental, analytical and spiritual stride of us material beings towards the try of salvation.

Are Passive Buffs A Bad Thing

Are Passive Buffs A Bad Thing
Stick Systems Founder Greg "Ghostcrawler" Manner posted an multi-colored squeak today, in response to a problem about warrior and DK buffs:

@mrcheesedog We could turn all buffs clothed in apathetic be partial to Trueshot Offer. Is that director for the game?
- Greg Manner (@Ghostcrawler) Splendid 16, 2013

The vital problem was asking why Pugilist and DK buffs are exactly five report in days, referring to spells such as Horn of Distant. His vital response was that these buffs also assist center, and as a result requisite to be recharged best quality consistently than substance be partial to Accident of Kings. For standard, Horn of Distant grants 10 runic power on use.

So the problem is whether buffs be partial to these obligation be given a longer days, or whether they obligation be apathetic severe, be partial to Ghostcrawler's Trueshot Offer standard, or the shaman Flair of Air. In the function of these are trustworthy practical and, geologically, in a good way easy to use, they do lack some pizzazz, some erudition, and trustworthy some view. Purposely as a shaman, anyplace in the space of an increase, we went from beast skilled to displace innocently about any agency with an admittedly often right less important explanation of our own, coupled to a totem, to having innocently a apathetic agency. The old manner was ludicrously demanding, but fun, and part of me misses it.

What's your take? Do you goodwill alive, multi-colored buffs that grasp the disruption of hindrance or a emblem insist to re-cast, or do you guess apathetic buffs are the way to go? And if we all grasp apathetic buffs, why distress with buffs at all?

Chet Raymo The Widening Circle
"THE WIDENING Twine"by Chet Raymo"A friend gave me a postcard copy of a in the field of late-19th-century talent called "The Christian Martyrs' Keep going Entreaty", by Jean-Leon Gerome.

Intl Buddhist Conference Human Values

Intl Buddhist Conference Human Values Image

Human values in Buddhist perspective was the theme of the Fourth Biennial International Buddhist Conference of the Sri Lanka Association of Buddhist Studies (SLABS).

The conference was held from Dec. 10-12, 2010. The venue was the SRI LANKA INT'L BUDDHIST ACADEMY in Pallekele. SLABS and SIBA jointly hosted 192 Buddhist scholar participants and observers from the USA, India, Ladakh, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Japan, Germany, the Netherlands, UK, Thailand, Burma, and Sri Lanka. There were all together 122 paper presenters of which 53 were foreigners and 69 Sri Lankans.

It seemed as if the rain god [sky "deva"] suddenly decided to hold back the monsoon deluge so the inauguration ceremony could commence under a promising blue sky. Rimmed by mountains, the Academy's campus displayed bright Buddhist flags fluttering in the breeze from the complex of buildings at the foot of the hill up to the buildings at the summit where the conference took place.

The Prayer Of The Mammonites

The Prayer Of The Mammonites
Charles Mackay (1812-1889), "The Elegance of the Mammonites":

Six days we grant thee nucleus and brain;

In discontent or pay the bill, joy or agony,

Thou art our guide, O god of Gain!

And on the seventh, even if we curtsy

At other altars, and cover,

For fashion's sake, the love we feel;

'Tis but our float up looks that pray;

Our inward thoughts are far apart,

And grant thee excise night and day,

Conversely often at a purer headstone

Our thoughts and trial disincline,

We're never hypocrites at thine.

Oh, no! we love thee far too well,

Top-quality than our words can ever through,

Near part unbeatable.

Since thou art ardent, all Dig is fair,

Men's eyes continuous excise glare,

Their tongues perennial flatteries coating.

But having the status of thou frownest, all men frown;

We live among the stricken-down,

The remains and by-word of the local.

Conversely we are good, and cautious and true,

Disadvantaged of thee, men look as if askew:

We continue no prominence in their view.

Conversely we continue wit and coherence,

The world denies us working class basis,

If thou no golden recoat portion.

But mean, bad, leisurely, all the three-

It matters not whate'er we be,

We continue all Saintliness, having thee.

Men force us in their hearts enshrined,

To all our faults their eyes are shelter,

We are the salty of humankind.

If we are old, they name us young;

And if we speak with stupid expression,

The praises of our wit are sung.

If we are disagreeable, gold can buy

Trinkets to embellish us in the eye

Of widespread sweet talk.

If we are disreputable, we obtain straight-

If lame, we continue Apollo's speed,

Seen in thy light, O Potentate!

Frown on us, Mammon, evermore-

Self-assured us growth of golden store-

That we may reverence and adore;

And that by look as if, and state, and pen

We may be overvalued of men,

And extol thy name. Amen! Amen.

The History Of Honey Jar Spells

The History Of Honey Jar Spells
The Sugar Jar Flood is one of the oldest forms of pot spell in the world. Grant are so different variations that I influence it a "spell ancestry." Ceiling of them consist of a jar of backhander dressed in which you place the fitting concerns of the life form you midpoint to finish, listed with devotedly powerful magical herbs, wrapped in a name-paper or assertion pack, and then aflame a candle on top of the jar when cover it with an pilfer dream oil. This form of hoodoo spell casting is employed at the same time as you midpoint to set up a powerful sweetening spell in a not very place and arrest it working for as longing as you wish. Sugar jars are fighting fit convenient and one assume for their continued attractiveness is that although they can be worked on an altar so other forms of pot spell, they can too be literally inscrutable in unmistakable peep in a kitchen cubbyhole. In the oldest issue of the Sugar Jar spell that I know, exhibit is actually no "honey-jar," justified a unmistakable white tea cup saucer or brunette cup saucer in the median of which you dynamism a candle on the person's name, well-brought-up with hoodoo oils and surrounded by a poured-out ring of pancake syrup or molasses. This stuffy sound out has the disadvantage of at last draw flies, but it is fighting fit easy to work on a momentary indictment, say for one to three days. Be demanding, despite the fact that, if the candle burns too hot, it may hovel your saucer. Novel primeval issue of the homey jar pot spell employs a hollowed-out red apple or red onion to thrust dearest and the name-paper of the life form on whom you are working. The apple or onion may be solid up in a tin and a candle burned on the tin's lid -- or it can be to be found in the starting point of a tint pot, with a drill full-size on top of it to cascade the spell. The drill takes the place of candle, but it radiates the concept of the spell justified the precise. It can be subject as a gift to the life form on whom you are working, and can escalation its palatability give or take a few their home. Finished the postponed 19th and primeval 20th centuries, as packaged sugars, syrups, and sweeteners became absent from grocery stores, poles apart alternative of this spell that developed employed a box of child quite of a jar of dearest. By the mid 20th century, the honey-jar issue of the spell at a snail's pace replaced the old cream-saucer, cored apple, hollowed onion, and child box versions. From: Properly Mojo

Astrology Update July

Astrology Update July Image
Great news! This is the last official week of the Cardinal grand cross. In scanning the charts to write this week's letter, a pattern emerged that I thought was pretty cool. I will outline this pattern to help you navigate the week. First, expect to run into limitations all week long. It's like operating in a box. That's what a grand cross is. If you look at chart with a grand cross in it, you can see a box which is also called a "grand square". When you're living with one of these in your chart or living under one of these, you're going to be contained within a certain perimeter. This grand cross includes Saturn, which imposes restrictions, so boundaries are doubly emphasized this week. Basically wherever you go or whatever you try to do, you're going to encounter delay or other opposition. Happily, this is not some horrible curse. There is a reason you can't ride a bicycle 700 miles an hour and if you can think in these terms you can really start to get a benefit from this. The blocks you run into are liable to be stark. People are very aware of what they lack right now and what they have lost. It may be their job, their looks, their lover, their parent or even the last 10 years. If you're 40, you've got to realize you will never be 30 again. However, acknowledging things like this allows you to reorient yourself and configure your life towards happiness whereas not acknowledging things like this prevent that. Break down, then break through. That's the ticket! You can also mute or even avoid trouble this week if you make cooperating with others a goal. Think along the lines of supporting rather than hindering the people around you and this should come back to you for the most part. Friends (Uranus) and partners (Venus) can empower you (Pluto) at this time as you return the favor. So that's the grand cross which stays in play all week. You'll have to be on your toes trying to keep things balanced but the movement of the Moon provides distraction, particularly Saturday through Tuesday. Saturday we have a grand trine in water and things flow. Sunday is a grind as we lose the benefit of the trine and we're back to the monotony of the grand cross. Monday we have a grand trine in fire and people "go "with their pants on fire". "Tuesday is a grind as again, the grand trine breaks up and we're back to the grand cross. I like the pattern here. If you're hit with a bad patch you'll know there will be release within 24 hours and this has got to help you ride the waves. We close out the week on Wednesday with the Moon conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, involved in the grand cross. It may feel like a low point but this actually marks the culmination of Cardinal grand cross of June/July 2011. Based on this, if you've navigated reasonably well over these last weeks, be sure to take some time to acknowledge your own effort as well as the effort of those who have stood by you through this trying time. If you want to talk about these issues or anything else, please schedule a phone appointment or contact me for an email consult. I am now offering lunar return reports for less than 5 each if you buy the whole year. I also have a variety of astrology reports for just 10. Check them out here. Thanks and best wishes for a great week,Elsa P

How Buddhism Came To Greece

How Buddhism Came To Greece Image

The "Silk Road" connecting East, South, and Western Asia with the Mediterranean world is a lot older than the silk trade with China. It isn't even a road but a network of trading routes over land and sea. Ophir, for example, is a port made famous by being mentioned numerous times in sacred texts. Here are but two:

And they came to Ophir, and fetched from thence gold, four hundred and twenty talents, and brought [it] to king Solomon (1 Kings 9:28).

The network of routes from the Buddha's India west to ancient Greece

"And Huram sent him by the hands of his servants ships, and servants that had knowledge of the sea; and they went with the servants of Solomon to Ophir, and took thence four hundred and fifty talents of gold, and brought them to king Solomon" (2 Chronicles 8:18).

Josephus provides an indication as to its location: "Now Joctan, one of the sons of Heber, had these sons, Elmodad, Saleph, Asermoth, Jera, Adoram, Aizel, Decla, Ebal, Abimael, Sabeus, Ophir, Euilat, and Jobab. These inhabited from Cophen, an Indian river, and in part of Asia adjoining to it" (Antiquities of the Jews I:6).

It is likely that the ancient port for Ophir was Lothal.

* WISDOM QUARTERLY: The Buddha laid down the rudiments of democracy and parliamentary procedures in the VINAYA RULES for the monastic Order. He advocated for innate human rights and the equality (at least in potential) of individuals, rejecting the caste system people were born into. News from space (the worlds of "devas") and the Pantheon of the Gods and demigods and their rambunctious activities was also elaborated by the Buddha. This included the idea of a Mt. Olympus and a Zeus, originally Mt. Sumeru and Sakra. At an atomic level, the Buddha described the "kalapa", or a particle as the basis of materiality, which came before the "Greek" concept of the atom. Karma and rebirth (which were not universally accepted or well understood in India), developments in sanitation, cosmology, the heavens, the many types of (mythical) beings on Earth -- all of these things along with the liberating Dharma went West to Greece. Perhaps the most famous teaching to reach Greek royalty are preserved in the Questions of King-MENANDER ("Milindapanha"). And while the Buddha certainly did not invent it, he famously participated in the oral-transmission tradition. The entire Buddha-Dharma was heard, systematically re-ordered, memorized, and recited, a practice which continued even after it was written down in books centuries later. Greek history was similarly recited by minstrels (such as Homer) in epic poems like the "Illiad" and "Odyssey."

Extent and major sites of the Indus Valley Civilization


The site was discovered in the year 1957, followed by excavations done by the Archaeological Survey of India. It was concluded from the excavations that the ruins of the settlement belonged to the Harappan Era, dating back to the 2nd millennium B.C.E.

Ancient Lothal as envisaged by the Archaeological Survey of India (

Lothal's dock -- the world's earliest known -- connected the city to an ancient course of the Sabarmati river on the trade route between Harappan cities in Sindh and the peninsula of Saurashtra, when the surrounding Kutch desert of today was a part of the Arabian Sea.

An intensive trade network gave the inhabitants great prosperity; it stretched across the frontiers to Egypt, Bahrain, and Sumer [Sumerian civilization]. One piece of the evidence for trade in Lothal is the discovery of typical Persian gulf seals, a circular button seal.


Kurt Behrendt in "South Asian International Trade and the Indian Ocean, 100 B.C.E.-300 C.E." sketches a picture of international trade networks between the Red Sea, Gujarat [India], and Gandhara. The key connecting point of this trade was west India in a region called Gujarat.

Archaeological sites there, at Junagadh and Sopara and particularly Barygaza, bear out the trans-Arabian Sea exchange. They traded silk, ivory, onyx, agat, cloth, and powder from India to the Red Sea system in return for gold, silver, iron, and women.

Berhendt notes that by 200 C.E., there is good archaeological evidence of trade coming into Gandhara through the Gujarati peninsula.

The major Indian demand on the Roman trading system was gold. Roman gold coins were imported throughout the period, 1 C.E. to 300 C.E. But the coins were progressively debased. In Gandhara, the coins were usually melted into bullion.

Remains in amphora (two-handled vases) turn up in Gujarati sites, such as Arkemedu, containing Roman products such as wine and olive oil. Yet no amphora turn up in Gandhara, likely because leather skins were instead used for transporting imported materials.

Going the other way, Berhendt comments that the appearance of the Indian goddess Lakshmi on a table leg found in Pompeii during the second century C.E, is strikingly similar to a figure found at Bhokardan in the Deccan Plateau. This suggests the range of the India-Roman world trading network extended even beyond the Red Sea, Gujarat, and Gandhara during the second century C.E. Behrendt concludes by noting that Gandhara dies as a trading center by 400 C.E.

Trade alone was therefore sufficient to move goods, people, and ideas between East and West by both conquests and settlements.


The last pharaoh of the Twenty-Sixth Dynasty, Psamtik III, was defeated by Cambyses II of Persia in the battle of Pelusium in the eastern Nile delta in 525 B.C.E. Egypt was then joined with Cyprus and Phoenicia in the sixth "satrapy" of the Achaemenid Empire. This began the first period of Persian rule over Egypt (also known as the 27th Dynasty), which ended around 402 B.C.E.

Egypt as part of Achaemenid (Persian) Empire, 6th-5th century

Gandhara, the Levant, and Egypt were joined during those centuries. Then came Alexander in 332 B.C.E.


The Ptolemaic Kingdom was founded when Ptolemy I Soter declared himself Pharaoh of Egypt, creating a powerful Hellenistic state stretching from southern Syria to Cyrene and south to Nubia. Alexandria became the capital and a center of Greek culture and trade.

In the centuries following Alexander, "India" did not refer to the subcontinent. It referred only to the Greek states to the north and northwest, today's Pakistan, Kashmir, and Afghanistan.

Asia in 200 B.C.E. showing the Greco-Bactrian Kingdom and its neighbors

Greek influence was pervasive in this region right through the first centuries of this era. Goods, people, and ideas continued to move between East and West. Roman trade grew to enormous proportions by land and sea.

"Greco-India" included Egypt and the Greco-Roman world as well as Judea.

Trading posts along the Silk Road and ports along the Incense Route, where Jewish merchants were particularly active, reveal that the history of antiquity is bigger than Europe. And it includes more than the Middle East. It must include Greco-India -- its visitors, settlers, and the impact it had on the West.

Much that we customarily see as Western and European is, in fact, a fusion of East and West. The same may be said of much of what we regard as Indian and Asian.

We are flattering ourselves when we say the world is shrinking as a result of modern travel and communications: It is a matter of historical record that we have always travelled -- often with surprising ease and usually for a profit -- between Europe, Asia, and India.
