Philippians 4:13 vs Silva Mind Control

Someone I know was involved in Silva Mind Control during the 1970s. I was a teen and shook it off. The topic was brought up again recently, so I did deeper research, now as a Christ-follower.

The Silva Method (Silva Mind Control-Satanic Practice) is an occult practice

(  ,   and should never be used by born-again Christians! Warning: everyone stay away from this Satanic practice, which allows evil spirits to enter and control your mind through demonic channeling, visualization,

( )

( )

transcendental meditation, self-hypnosis, and spiritism (contacting spirits of the dead) –  all divination, which God’s word forbids in Deuteronomy 18:9-13 and says that those who practice it are an abomination and detestable to the LORD!

While alive, its founder encouraged priests and nuns to take the course. Others in the Christian Church are being deceived by visualization used in medicine, education, psychotherapy, sports, and human potential seminars, among others! It was first developed by José Silva in the 1960s, after starting experiments with it in 1944. Silva believed it could improve IQ, develop clairvoyance, and use the mind to heal the body, but it pretends to give you Christ-consciousness, and is, in fact, a Satanic religion.  Participants are taught to repeat positive sentences to themselves before falling asleep at night, so that they will wake up the next morning with a positive attitude.

SMC puts attention on the power of the human being to supposedly perfect himself. Constantly repeating the positive sentences could work a person into a frenzy, in my opinion. Worst of all, SMC ultimately allows communication with evil spirits. Never have anything to do with this deceptive trickery of the devil!

The only wise option? If you trust in Christ as your Savior and Lord, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Controlling your mind with the Silva Method puts much confidence in the flesh, and sometimes unknowingly in evil spirits that are allowed into your body! The apostle Paul said in Philippians 3:3, “… we who serve God by His Spirit, who boast in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh.”

Philippians 4:13 – ”I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” It’s wiser and easier to rest in Jesus by faith, than to repeat Silva’s positive-thinking mantras over and over! I choose to rest in Jesus who saved me, holds my hand, and fills me with His Holy Spirit! He will “never leave me nor forsake me.” – Hebrews 13:5. With His presence, you can have peace, joy, Christ-confidence, grace, power, and love filling your life, as you study the Bible and yield to His Holy Spirit.

No counterfeit, including Silva Mind Control, can give you real peace and eternal security. SMC will put you in touch with Satan, who wickedly approves! If you have tried the Silva deception, confess your sin, and give your life to Jesus, who will be your Lord and Savior. If you are a Christian already, run from SMC, the deception of Satan so cleverly disguised, confess your sin, and be cleansed. – 1 John 1:9.

Tim Tebow has written Phil 4:13 under his eyes with eye black. This made people ask who “Phil” was and what Phil 4:13 meant. Then he told them, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” This means that we can do all things that God wants us to do through Christ, who strengthens us. See your life changed after you give your life, body, soul, spirit, and mind to God, the only way to live, not by demonic power released in Silva Mind Control!

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God, and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard  your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6,7.

Romans 12:1,2  – ”Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is true worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will.”

Then go tell others about Jesus; fight Satan’s attack by being that “city set on a hill” as you let your light shine! Matthew 5:14-16.


Report: Psychiatrists, DoD & VA Spent Billions Not Treating Veterans

Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Department of Defense (DoD) spend $3.3 billion a year on psychiatric medications and therapy for US veterans diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) without any proof that their efforts are “successfully treating” our military.

While the VA spent billions in taxpayer money not treating PTSD, “nearly 80 percent of its senior executives got( performance bonuses ) last year.”

Gina Farrisee, assistant secretary of human resources for the VA spoke to Congress, stating that “more than 350 VA executives were paid nearly $3 million in bonuses last year. The VA needs to pay bonuses to keep executives who are paid up to $181,000 per year.”

The Institute of Medicine (IOM)( released a report ) stating that psychiatrists and psychicians at the VA and DoD do not communicate with each other when dealing with patients diagnosed with PTSD.   )

Outlined in the( 2010 National Defense Authorization Act ) (NDAA), the DoD and VA are tasked with providing “a spectrum of programs and services to screen for, diagnose, treat for, and rehabilitate service members and veterans who have or are at risk for PTSD.”

The NDAA empowered IOM to “assess those PTSD programs and services in two phases. The Phase 1 study, Treatment for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in Military and Veteran Populations: Initial Assessment, focused on data gathering. Treatment for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in Military and Veteran Populations Final Assessment is the report of the second phase of the study.”

(Phase 1 ) of this study looks at the “psychiatric consequences” of soldiers who served in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Sandro Galea, chair of the IOM committee who conducted the study commented: “We are hoping this serves as a clarion call and blueprint to guide where we should be.”

Galea said: “We found it surprising that no PTSD outcome measures are used consistently to know if these treatments are working or not. They could be highly effective, but we won’t know unless outcomes are tracked and evaluated.”


Mormonism, Satanism Repackaged …

We will take a look inside Mormonism,(, and are most grateful that YouTube offers videos presented by former Mormons(,who have been set free from this bondage by the Lord Jesus Christ. Hallelujah to the Lamb of God!Confronting demonic doctrine(,whether within what today passes for evangelical Christianity, or false religious ideology of various sects is unpopular because well-known personalities (presidential or media)(,

pose as victims portraying us as “haters” merely for denying all roads lead to heaven. Mormonism’s founder claimed to see both God and Jesus, contrary to Scripture.







Moreover, Smith claimed to see an angel Moroni from whom he received the Book of Mormon, just as Mohammed claimed to receive the Qur’an. Anyone see the connection? The Bible warns of this possibility (  Gal 1:7-8, 2 Cor 11:14   )

Six Principles for Developing Humility as a Leader

Whether we’re looking at business or politics, sports or entertainment, it’s clear we live in an era of self-celebration. Fame is equated with success, and being self-referential has become the norm. As a result we are encouraged to pump ourselves full of alarming self-confidence. Bluster and the alpha instinct, contends Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, professor of business psychology, often get mistaken for ability and effectiveness (at least for a while). It may well be why so many (incompetent) men rise ahead of women to leadership positions, as Chamorro-Premuzic argued in a recent HBR post.

Yes, we have scores of books, articles, and studies that warn us of the perils of hubris. The word comes from the Greek and means extreme pride and arrogance, generally indicating a loss of connection to reality brought about when those in power vastly overestimate their capabilities.

Karl Marx-Atheist or Satanist?

Communist doctrine preaches atheism loudly, clearly, and consistently. This religious world view supposedly originated with Karl Marx, the Founding Father of Communism. Atheism is defined as “disbelief in or denial of, the existence of God”. Since this is the definition of atheism, a practicing Satanist cannot be an atheist. A Satanist believes in the existence of God and Satan, of Heaven and Hell. The Satanist( chooses, with his Free Will, to serve Satan, thus taking upon himself the characteristics of Satan, especially his unbelievable, supernatural, hatred of God, Christians, and Jews.




But, a Satanist will never be an atheist. (

Since Karl Marx has been depicted as the creator of the greatest atheist system in world history, we should expect that he did not believe in God at all. Surprise!! Marx was a practicing Satanist,( could not, therefore, be an Atheist. Karl grew up in a Christian family, and earlier in his life, confessed Jesus Christ as Savior. Consider this exerpt from a work Karl wrote as a youth: “Union with Christ could give an inner elevation, comfort in sorrow, calm trust, and a heart susceptible to human love, to everything noble and great, not for the sake of ambition and glory, but only for the sake of Christ”. What a wonderful expression of love and devotion to Jesus Christ!! None of us could have done better. When Marx graduated from high school, the following comment was written under the heading Religious Knowledge: “His knowledge of the Christian faith and morals is fairly clear and well grounded…” Thus, we know that Marx knew Scripture well. However, soon after high school, Karl began an abrupt shift toward the adversary, Satan. Again, this time in a poem, Marx writes, “I wish to avenge myself against the One who rules above”. This statement is quite consistent with a Satanist,(, who believes in God, Who rules above, but who has made a personal decision to side with Satan against God. One of the key understanding of Satan is that he hates all mankind, and wishes them dead and in hell with him, simply and only because all human beings are made in the “image of God” (Genesis 1:26). Satan wishes eternal damnation for every human being God has ever created, even those people who serve him. Now listen to Marx:”…Yet I have power within my youthful arms- To clench and crush you (i.e., personified humanity)

with tempestuous force,

While for us both the abyss yawns in darkness.

You will sink down and I shall follow laughing,

Whispering in your ears ‘Descend,

come with me, friend'”.I cannot imagine a more terrible personal conclusion, that Marx knew, and accepted, the knowledge that he had made a lifelong choice for Satan and Hell. Reverend Wurmbrand( shows many instances in which Marx possessed great hatred for all mankind and wanted nothing more than to destroy it and to enjoy that destruction. Because our space is so limited, we will quote just one representative sample:With disdain I will throw my gauntlet

Full in the face of the world,

And see the collapse of this pygmy giant

Whose fall will not stifle my ardour.

Then will I wander godlike and victorious

Through the ruins of the world

And, giving my words an active force,

I will feel equal to the Creator

Again, we see the two Satanic(,characteristics of desiring to destroy all mankind and to become God or godlike.

Then Reverend Wurmbrand states his belief that Marx was actually possessed of demons, as he quotes Engel’s written statement that Marx was a “monster possessed by 10,000 devils”. This certainly explains Marx’s many evil statements and the evil fruits of Communism so amply displayed before the world. Wurmbrand then proceeds to document the many instances in which 20th Century Communist leaders have either practiced aspects of Satanism or have actually worshipped Satan. He succinctly states his conclusion, “Communism is collective demon- possession”. For our purposes, we have studied the above material simply to ask the following question. “If Karl Marx was a practicing Satanist, and demon possessed, he certainly believed in the existence of God.(, why did he supposedly write The Communist Manifesto, which established a system of Government and Economy professing absolute Atheism?” Wurmbrand unknowingly hits the truth squarely on the head when he states, “Marx’s chief aim was the destruction of religion. The good of the workers was only a pretense”. Remember our thesis, that Communism was created deliberately by the Masters of the Illuminati/Illuminist Freemasonry(,as the perfect Anti-Thesis to the Western Thesis (Capitalism) so that, according to the Hegelian Doctrine of Controlled Conflict, a planned protracted struggle between Thesis and Anti-Thesis would produce the new Satanic system, the New World Order.( We know that, in 1848, “a highly select body of secret initiates who called themselves the League of Twelve Just Men of the Illuminati, financed Karl Marx to write the Communist Manifesto.” If Illuminist Freemasonry really did create Communism, we should be able to see a firm connection with Freemasonry in Marx’s life. Reverend Wurmbrand shows us this link perfectly, when he states, “Giuseppe Mazzini, who knew him (Marx) well, wrote that he had ‘a destructive spirit’,…[but] he maintained his friendship with him. The Jewish Encyclopedia says that Mazzini and Marx were entrusted with the task of preparing the address and the constitution of the First International. This means that they were birds of the same feather…” Guisseppe Mazzini was an Italian Illuminist Freemason who, with Albert Pike (Supreme Leader of North American Freemasonry), received that supernatural vision that three world wars would be required to establish the New World Order. And here we see he and Marx cooperating in leading the First Internatlonal, the first global Communist conference, in 1864. This is firm evidence of Freemasonry in Karl Marx’s life. Mazzini and Marx were friends, which strongly suggests that they undoubtedly spent much time and effort discussing, planning and sharing ideas. Since Mazzini was a very influential Freemason, he would have logically been part of the plan to create the perfect Anti-Thesis to the Western Thesis to produce the desired Synthesis, utilizing the precepts of the Hegelian doctrine of Controlled Conflict Producing Controlled Change. The final part to this puzzle is the question as to whether there was any direct link between the German Professor Hegel and the German Karl Marx. There certainly was, as Reverend Wurmbrand states emphatically that Professor Hegel was Karl Marx’s first university professor! Marx even wrote a poem eulogizing Hegel. Wurmbrand has this to say about Professor Hegel, “Christianity has been satirized in Germany before Hegel. But, he was the first to satirize Jesus Himself….We are what we feed upon. Marx fed upon Satanic ideas; therefore, he set forth Satanic doctrine”. Our circle of understanding is now complete. Professor Hegel taught Satanic doctrine in his Controlled Change By Controlled Conflict, and he convinced a most enterprising pupil, Karl Marx. Marx and his friend Mazzini could very well have perfected the plan, or, if Marx had no direct input into perfecting the plan, he would have been willing to act as the mouthpiece to put it into public print. I personally believe Marx had little to no involvement in creating Communism, because he was so out of control in his personal life; however, he was the perfect disciple to serve as the mouthpiece for propagating the Anti-Thesis, Communism. One final note: Christian author and former Satanist/Illuminist, Doc Marquis, states emphatically that he was taught that Communism was created by the Illuminati. In fact, the very name, Communism is simply another way of expressing, Illuminism. This much is clear — Communism was created by Freemasonry as the perfect opposite system (Anti-Thesis) to the Western system (Thesis) to produce the desired system (New World Order). Karl Marx was a willing accomplice in publicly propagating this Satanic Plan, and Communist leaders from Lenin to Stalin to Mao Tse-tung, to Gorbachev have also been willing deceivers, all knowingly cooperating with Western leaders in a global plan to produce the New World Order.

But, now, you are no longer deceived!!

“We inadvertently stated that the name of the statute in Odessa, Russia. The statute was of Satan, and had the name, Baphomet underneath. However, our point was the same, that Communists were not atheists, but were secret worshippers of Satan. Communist leaders were secretly worshipping this statute.”


The Benefits of Rose Hip Syrup

A couple of decades ago it was the norm to give children a spoon of rose hip syrup to top up their vitamin levels and ward off colds. Then, almost overnight rose hip syrup vanished from the shelves due to the outcry that it was too sweet and damaging children’s teeth.

Admittedly it is sweet, very sweet, but the damage came from ill informed parents dipping pacifiers into the concentrated juice to soothe their little ones off to sleep.

Now, years later rose hip syrup re-appeared on pharmacy shelves. It was re-branded and was not as you would expect in the childrens or (vitamin )sections of the pharmacy. No, it was in with the highly expensive supplements section lauded as a major step forward in the treatment of arthritis.

The price of a small bottle of rose hip syrup has rocketed, almost a 1,000% increase now it is a ‘cure’ for something that affects so many.( Big Pharma strikes again. )
This has given birth to a plethora of preparations, many of them tablets stating that they ease the pain of arthritis. Most of these things have no effect at all as there is little of the active ingredients left. Fresh, unadulterated rose hip syrup on the other hand has a good deal going for it.

Personal experience and the trying of dozens of products tells me that rose hip syrup eases arthritis pain. For me at least. In addition, it still provides a decent vitamin boost for the young, the old, the infirm and anyone in between.

Making your own rose hip syrup is by far the cheapest way to secure your supply. Its simple and tastes great as well as having the benefit of no additives or fillers put into it.

As well as vitamin C, rose hip syrup provides a welcome boost of vitamin D, something that should be welcomed when our exposure to sunlight is minimal and our vitamin D manufacture is at its lowest. Vitamin A is naturally present in the hips so pregnant women should seek medical advice before taking rose hip syrup. Although a single spoon is unlikely to cause damage if the pregnant woman is already eating a diet high in vitamin A problems could occur.

Excessive vitamin A during pregnancy can cause blindness in the baby. There is a small amount of calcium and bioflavonoids that all become bioavailable when the hips are prepared as a syrup.

Any rose hips can be used, including those from wild briar roses in hedgerows. Wait until the hips are softened by the first frosts and the process is quicker and easier.


A Slap in the Face at a Gas-fired Power Plant

Archimedes once said, “Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.”  Thanks to my high school math teacher Robert Burns, I have always admired Archimedes.  I remember the day he was talking about him in class, and he was explaining how Archimedes had sat down in the bathtub and when the water overflowed, and he suddenly realized how to calculate the volume of the king’s crown, he jumped out of the tub and ran down the street in his birthday suit yelling “Eureka!  Eureka!”  Meaning… I have found it!  I have found it!  I especially remember Mr. Burn’s eyes tearing up as he told this story.  To Mr. Burns, mathematics was an adventure.  He instilled this love into me.

So, how does a discussion about Archimedes tie into a story about a Gas-fired Power Plant in central Oklahoma?…
