Praise report

We have posted many prayers for neuropsychiatric illnesses. The ketogenic diet has been proven beneficial for pediatric epileptics. In addition, there are anecdotal reports of patients with migraine headaches and psychoses improving on the diet.

To God be the glory!


South Carolina Litigation

September 23, 2015

The hearing of the appeal by TEC and its local agents against the Diocese of South Carolina starts on September 23.

We ponder the mystery that today’s court hearing for the South Carolina dioceses is on Yom Kippur, “the great day of covering over,”
and we honor Jesus, who paid the ransom for our sins with His precious blood.
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
We appeal to heaven and humbly ask for an alignment of this court case with Your perfect justice and righteousness.
We bless the South Carolina Court and Justices, the lawyers on both sides of this case, and the churches they represent.
May Your name be honored in all of the proceedings.
Your kingdom come to this hearing, Lord.
Your will be done as it is in heaven. Amen.

The upcoming hearing of the appeal by TEC and its local agents against the Diocese of South Carolina is due to start on September 23.

For the LORD’s portion is his people, Jacob his allotted inheritance.
You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.
In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste.
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive glory.
He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye,
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power.
like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them on its pinions.
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive strength.
The LORD alone led him; no foreign god was with him.
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive honor.
He made him ride on the heights of the land and fed him with the fruit of the fields.
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive riches.
He nourished him with honey from the rock, and with oil from the flinty crag,
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive wisdom.
with curds and milk from herd and flock and with fattened lambs and goats, with choice rams of Bashan and the finest kernels of wheat. You drank the foaming blood of the grape.
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive blessings.
Deuteronomy 32:9-14, Revelation 4:11, 5:12

Our Father in heaven,
We loose these songs of Moses and the angels over the courtroom hearings in the South Carolina litigation. Amen.

Ezra 6:22 (ESV)
And they kept the Feast of Unleavened Bread seven days with joy, for the Lord had made them joyful and had turned the heart of the king of Assyria to them, so that he aided them in the work of the house of God, the God of Israel.

Our Father in heaven,
We humbly request that You turn the heart of the judge to the Diocese of South Carolina in the upcoming litigation and aid the Diocese in the work of the house of God. Amen.

The upcoming hearing of the appeal by TEC and its local agents against the Diocese of South Carolina is due to start on September 23.

Psalm 22:3 (ESV)
Yet you are holy,
enthroned on the praises of Israel.

Revelation 4:6,8 (ESV)
And before the throne there was as it were a sea of glass, like crystal. And around the throne, on each side of the throne, are four living creatures . . . And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say,

“Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty,
who was and is and is to come!”

Our Father in heaven,

Enthroned upon the praises of Israel, enthroned upon the praises of the four living creatures, enthroned upon the praises of those who have been adopted as sons and daughters through Jesus Christ,

Holy is Your name.

We thank You for the blessings that You bestow upon the Diocese of South Carolina each and every day. You are her Provider, her Protector, and her Defender. You are her Good Shepherd.

The Diocese of South Carolina shall not want. You make her lie down in green pastures. You love her with a love that is beyond measure. You know her needs, and You sustain her, even in this season of litigation.

You lead her beside still waters. All of her fountains of joy are in You. You restore her soul.

You lead her in paths of righteousness for Your name’s sake. Your word is a lamp to her feet and a light to her path. Through Your precepts, You give her understanding.

Even though she walks through a valley of litigation, You are with her. She will fear no evil, for You guide her continually and satisfy her desire in scorched places and make her strong. Your rod and Your staff, they comfort her.

You prepare a table before her in the presence of her enemies. She delights in wine and milk without money, without price! She listens diligently to You and eats what is good. She delights herself in Your provision, and You anoint her head with the oil of gladness.

Her cup overflows, and she shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow her, and she shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Amen.


319! 319! 319!

September 1, 2015

ABRAM AND HIS 318 MEN DELIVER LOT AND HIS FAMILY (Genesis 14; 319 warriors)

DAVID’S TABERNACLE OF PRAISE (1 Chronicles 25-26; 3 seers + 288 musicians + 28 gatekeepers=319 worshippers)

BIBLICAL RECORD OF TRUMPETS IN WAR
I. The Israelites execute the Lord’ vengeance on Midian–presumed two trumpets
Numbers 31:6
And Moses sent them to the war, 1,000 from each tribe, together with Phinehas son of Eleazar, the priest, with the [sacred] vessels of the sanctuary and the trumpets to blow the alarm in his hand.

This passage doesn’t say how many trumpets Phinehas took to war, but an earlier passage in Numbers gives a clue:
Numbers 10:1,2,9 (AMP)
And the Lord said to Moses,
Make two trumpets of silver; of hammered or turned work you shall make them, that you may use them to call the congregation and for breaking camp. . . .
When you go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresses you, then blow an alarm with the trumpets, that you may be remembered before the Lord your God, and you shall be saved from your enemies.

II. The fall of Jericho–seven trumpets
Joshua 6:4 (AMP)
And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams’ horns; and on the seventh day you shall march around the enclosure seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets.

III. Ehud kills the King of Moab and the Lord delivers the Moabites into Israel’s hands–one trumpet
Judges 3:27 (AMP)
When he arrived, he blew a trumpet in the hill country of Ephraim, and the Israelites went down from the hill country, with him at their head.

IV. Gideon conquers the host of Midian–301 trumpets
Judges 7:16-18 (AMP)
And he divided the 300 men into three companies, and he put into the hands of all of them trumpets and empty pitchers, with torches inside the pitchers.
And he said to them, Look at me, then do likewise. When I come to the edge of their camp, do as I do.
When I blow the trumpet, I and all who are with me, then you blow the trumpets also on every side of all the camp and shout, For the Lord and for Gideon!

V. Saul calls Israel to war against the Philistines–one trumpet
1 Samuel 13:3 (AMP)
Jonathan smote the Philistine garrison at Geba, and the Philistines heard of it. And Saul blew the trumpet throughout all the land, saying, Let the Hebrews hear!

VI. Joab calls Judah to stop pursuing Israel–one trumpet
2 Samuel 2:28 (AMP)
So Joab blew a trumpet, and all the people stood still and pursued Israel no more, nor did they fight any more.

VII. Joab calls David’s servants to stop fighting Absalom’s servants after Absalom is killed–one trumpet
2 Samuel 18:16 (AMP)
Then Joab blew the trumpet, and the troops returned from pursuing Israel, for Joab restrained and spared them.

VIII. Sheba calls Israel to rebel against David, and Joab calls off his pursuit after Sheba’s death–two trumpets
2 Samuel 20:1,14,15,22 (AMP)
There happened to be there a base and contemptible fellow named Sheba son of Bichri, a Benjamite. He blew a trumpet and said, We have no portion in David and no inheritance in the son of Jesse! Every man to his tents, O Israel! . . .
Joab went through all the tribes of Israel to Abel of Beth-maacah, and all the Berites assembled and also went after [Sheba] ardently.
And they came and besieged Sheba in Abel of Beth-maacah, and they cast up a siege mound against the city, and it stood against the rampart; and all the men with Joab battered and undermined the wall to make it fall. . . .
And they cut off the head of Sheba son of Bichri and cast it down to Joab. So he blew the trumpet, and they retired from the city, every man to his own home.

IX. Israel ambushes Judah
2 Chronicles 13:14-15 (AMP)–presumed two trumpets
When Judah looked, behold, the battle was before and behind; and they cried to the Lord, and the priests blew the trumpets.
Then the men of Judah gave a shout; and as they shouted, God smote Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah.

The number of trumpets is not recorded. Based on Numbers 10, I am surmising two.

X. Nehemiah prepares to fight the Arabians, Ammonites, and Ashdodites while the wall is being rebuilt–one trumpet, never sounded
Nehemiah 4:18,20 (AMP)
And every builder had his sword girded by his side, and so worked. And he who sounded the trumpet was at my side. . . In whatever place you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us.

The sum of the record of trumpets in war is 319.

O Lord, may there continuously be 319 intercessors warring for the establishment of Your kingdom in the United States as it is in heaven! Amen.
