CALL ON JESUS TO BE SAVED

wp-1578310337242.gifCall on Jesus to save you in eternal life to rescue you in Rapture if you believe in Jesus Christ. The world is changing as Jesus warned so Revelation is unfolding in all parts of earth. Trust God to help to face challenges going on. The Bible says in 2 Samuel 24:1-24 David’s sin against the LORD God for counting God’s army.” David’s went against the advise an army Captain gave him. David put his trust in chariots and horses in defeat of enemies forgot Jehovah Nissi fights his battle by heavenly host armies single handedly!!! 11 The LORD sent prophet Gad a seer to tell David, 12 ‘Choose your punishment for your mistake. 13 Gad gave David the options of three years hunger in land or enemies chasing you three months? Or three days of disease in the land” 14 So David told Gad, “Let the LORD punish us because God is merciful, don’t let people punish us!” 15 The LORD sent a disease on the land until chosen time to stop the plague by His mercy, thank God!

In Dan to Beersheba, seventy thousand people died 16 As angel raised his arm to destroy Jerusalem the LORD changed His mind felt sad about terrible things to happen told angel to stop destroying people. “The angel of the LORD at the threshing floor of Araunah Jebusite. 17 David saw angel that killed people and David told the LORD, “I sinned against God not the people God punish me and my family.” 18 Gad told David, God said “Build altar to the LORD on threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite. 19 David did as commanded. 20 Araunah saw the king and servants bowed to the king. 21 asks “Why did you come here?” David said to buy your threshing floor to build ALTAR to LORD for the disease plague to stop.” 22 Araunah said, “Take the land to sacrifice oxen for burnt offering and threshing board and yokes for wood. 23 The LORD God be pleased with you.” 24 King told Araunah “I will pay for your land not offer the LORD burnt offerings that cost me nothing. David paid for the floor, oxen, two and fourth pound silver 25 Built ALTAR to the LORD burnt whole offerings God accepted, disease stopped. Call on God for mercy on family, friends and nations in Jesus Name. Thank God for Jesus our Messiah sent to save from punishments of sin Jesus took away.

Jesus warned 3000 years ago there will be plagues in end times. Revelations 22 says those who change word of God will suffer plagues. China said they will soon change Bible to communism man-made ideas corona came immediately. When a Chinese doctor warned people of virus he was accused he spread false rumour but caught the virus and died. Haiti said satan was their god so earthquakes hit them immediately. End time plagues or wildfires and volcanoes, the tsunamis, mudslides, plagues, floods or tornadoes, locust, pestilence perilous times famine, droughts Bible says one third of all trees destroyed by fire, ships sink, seas, rivers asteroids, comets, meteor toxins pollute earth to cause death. Revelation 6 says spirit of death causes people to die until Rapture. Later is GREAT TRIBULATION death God mockers who reject Jesus the Son of God must repent. All who accept Jesus even if they die in Christ will go into heaven but those who reject Jesus after death go in a hellfire punishment. ALL THESE ARE IN BIBLE FROM GOD AS JESUS WARNED 3OOO YEARS AGO. Today when you hear His Voice accept Jesus to be saved. During attacks it was said some children just received Christ when they were attacked and died. The people who died in Christ resurrect into eternal life in Christ live in infinity. The coming disaster is worse than COVID-19.

Once you are caught unprepared then you are doomed eternally.

COVID-19 will soon end, *but if you don’t put your ways right, and JESUS’ second coming take you unaware then it is worst than coronavirus.*

Do self examination:
*✓Wash your heart*
*✓Keep a social distance from evil*
*✓Avoid the crowd of wickedness and wicked men*
*✓Cover your mind from being infected from the sneeze of sin and hatred*
*✓Do not shake hands with abomination*
*✓Do not hug heresy and false teachings.*
*✓Be safe so that you will be saved.*
*✓Sanitize your life with the Word of God*.
*✓In case you notice symptoms of sin, call the helpline of Christ in PRAYER.*
*✓Remember to boost your spiritual immunity system with Faith and the Power of the Holy Spirit.*

Romans 8:35-39 SAYS GOD LOVES YOU
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Calculating ploy used to buy her clothes to copy Diana tricked Harry and took advantage of impressionable Harry to fall in love her strategy worked. Refused to wear tights, hats wore black nail varnish broke protocol for negative attention “racism” to justify her excuse of ‘intense media scrutiny’ to leave UK.

IMG-20200212-WA001520200207_16202020200209_010814People don’t care what you know until they know you CARE because ACTIONS speaks LOUDER than word salads. So all achievements in life is nothing if self-centred, selfish, self-indulgent and rude to her majesty bamboozled by lies. Says will stay at home for quiet birthday but flys on private jet to celebrate in Ibiza. Said its a home birth and money spent to build room warned against by expert doctors. She wore fake prosthetic moon bumps but pretends to be pregnant and given “birth” in private hospital. Wasn’t pregant but lied nobody asked if she is OK going through “pregnancy.” Baby’s detail kept secret, a first in British Royal family history created more suspicions hiding surrogate birth? The privacy ten commandments to neighbours is don’t talk, touch, ask, go near them so people obeyed, isolated themselves but moans nobody asks if OK. The fake pregnancy announced on Eugene’s wedding day at their family meal, megxit announced on Kate’s birthday, hands on belly 300 days till ‘birth’ hands on hair. Royals not hold hands in public office insult queen or a family publicly on TV washing her dirty linen in public. They sue British press or demand more “progressive royal family and their financial independence.” But £100,000,000 is wasted by their reckless squandering of tax payer’s money. Uses royal titles but complain family “toxic” she does not want their child raised yet none saw baby. Insults and sues media by her artogant rules against 1000 year established royal family’s rota contract over 100 years. Fixated newspapers and media exposes their shenanigans trying to pull wool over British people’s eyes. Told queen St George church smells to spray perfume during wedding. Wanted red carpet treatment like a celebrity of Hollywood. She wants painful memory scandal crown of Russian family killed to embarrass queen stopped spoilt brat behaviour of ‘what she wants she gets’ “she gets what she is given.” Merching clothes, jewel, endorsing adverts a with royal eats cake and have it but despises royal duty. Lies the press chases her like Diana killed by drunk driver in France. Rejects royal protocol on duty members obey and insults the British stiff upper lip. Refused to go to Balmoral baby too young to travel flew baby. Refused visit to queen Prime Minusters visit. Refused to join family Christmas time took away Harry loved bombed from his brother, family and UK people. Preaches climate change but flies more unnecessarily has high carbon footprints. Threw out staff of listed property and took whole house, stopped them using carpark, rebuilt this listed property outdoor kitchen without planning permission. 5 million total for this home not good enough to live. Plans queen absent at son’s christening thinks a minor royal. Wakes her staff at 5am to give orders non stop during day but the working day from 9am to 5pm. Rejects security advise so swamped in a market security steps in to remove her. Royals are not allowed to earn an extra money alongside the money given them but got contract from Disney to do voice overs she did a conflict of interest. Took Harry from military duty to red carpet Disney event to ask for work said “this is why we are here.” Rate of spending spree on clothes so high engagement dress alone £80,000, maternity to Morocco £98,000+ queen stopped high costs before royals get bankrupted. Refused to wear a dress in the royal box so royal paranoia won’t allow anyone near her at tennis cleared viewers sat in a public domain with her guests from US so her security told off a man taking selfie. Pharrel and Beyonce told, “British don’t make her life easy yet taxpayers paid for £50 million wedding including security. Private jets £500,000 baby showers not allowed in this Royal family in austerity Britain. Seven staff members resigned in 18 months for no consideration for others. Abandons her father, siblings, family, friends over 30 years except her mother. Claims “toxic” “racist” ‘suffocating’ family hates son due to racism but holds on to their title, as an “internationally protected person” funded 24 hour security but wants “financially independence.” And gets millions from royal family for pocket money. Don’t gain whole world and lose soul. Foresight could have set up better plans. Coincident birthday is 4th August of Queen mother, dogs corgies, so these actions people see through and call out is racism?

Articles rebloged from public domains are views and opinions of other people. So ‘Meghan can’t have it all’ says Royal author Anna Pasternak who warns that Meghan must realise she can’t live like an ‘A-lister’ while enjoying privileges of her role in the Royal family. Anna insists it is crucial to the monarchy to have respect, value to honour the queen and the nation as a whole. Do you think these views are fair and accurate? What do you think about these comments?

AUSTERITY POVERTY BRITAIN

Photo of Dr Roberts helping her colleagues by securing bin bags on their headsDr Robert shows alarming facts medical professionals who care for critically ill patients for 13 hour’s day use plastic bin bags for personal protective equipment (PPE) out of clinical waste bags, plastic aprons and skiing goggles. The public keeps social distance of two metres but NHS staff are asked to examine patients suspected of coronavirus at a distance of 20cm without any proper protection. Nurses in ITU(Intensive Treatment Unit) doing procedures at risk of the aerosol spread of virus. They wear theatre hats with holes, don’t provide any protection. The government’s distribution problems affects national supply team and armed forces “working around clock to deliver equipment. NHS England said a million respiratory face masks delivered on 1 April with no mention of much-needed head protection or long-sleeved gowns. Dr Roberts says hospitals don’t  receive help from the government is cause for concern. The respiratory protection face masks used past best-before end dates:  expiry 2009, 2013, 2021 so are recycled.20200405_144317Dr Roberts pulls expiry dates from a face mask's packaging20200405_180527IMG-20200411-WA0004Intensive care doctors need correct PPE to patient use ventilator to support their breathing or body contact resuscitation.

Tackle coronavirus pandemic and help millions of people across the globe whose lives you throw into crisis by Covid-19. Billionaires like Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey committed huge amounts of money to eliminate humans is not solution to their man-made crisis. Members of the wealthy elite criticised for pledging small fractions of fortunes to address the worst-ever global health emergency set to trigger economic crisis on the scale of 1930s Great Depression. Its killing highly skilled ethnic doctors and ethnic minorities. Donald Trump ‘lost $1bn in a month’ from coronavirus lockdown Jeff Bezos, founder, Amazon world’s richest person donated $100m (£80m) to the food bank charity Feeding America. The charity runs a network of 200 food banks, said Bezos’s donation is the biggest ever received so “countless lives will be changed by his generosity”

The ambulance drivers must wear PPE, and crew should wear the appropriate proteftion because of aerosol molecules level of exposure risk faced. A frontline  staff cannot keep 2m away from patient so should wear protective masks kits to be sent by government. The £10,000:00 extra allowance to each MPs on top of a second home allowance and £1000 pay increase should be used to buy PPE for the dictire and nurses, The government says it provided over 761 million pieces of PPE in UK to hospitals, hospices, care homes /care providers, GPs, dentists and pharmacists. These disposable items are replaced to stop the spread of Covid-19 from staff to patients. So 761m includes body bags, pulse oximeters, swabs, and clinical waste containers, plus cleaning equipment and detergent to NHS Trusts. Is not enough for the 1.58m NHS staff in UK hospitals and community requiring PPE used once per patient others can be used for whole sessions during a ward round visit to many patients. The gowns aprons, gloves surgical masks should be disposed of after single use or session. A PPE worn during highest risk situations  lots of splatter from infectious droplets needs single use. Goggles or face shields reused if decontaminated. Staff need to use lots PPE following the guidelines:IMG-20200411-WA0003Pregnant nurses, healthcare assistants said they were working in direct contact with patients who tested positive for Covid-19 or suspected of contracting it, despite government guidelines forced to work. Classifying as a vulnerable group, are disgusted with treatment and stress put on them at this stressful time,” said one healthcare assistant. Lobby groups and charities, including Pregnant Then Screwed (PTS), Maternity Action written to the Royal College of Obstetricians and the Gynaecologists (RCOG) on guidance changes to women less than 28 weeks pregnant continuing to work in a non-Covid patient role if all necessary safety precautions are taken.

It is run by clinician Dr Roberts points out, could be looking after patients..Almost 400 care companies providing home support across the UK told BBC they still do not have enough personal protective equipment (PPE). Without protection, providers say they are unable to care for people awaiting hospital discharge. Of 481 providers, 381 – 80% – said they don’t have enough PPE to support older and vulnerable people. The government said it was working “around the clock” to give the sector equipment it needs. The BBC sent questions to nearly 3,000 members of UK Homecare Association. A quarter of them said they run out of masks or have less than week’s supply. Coronavirus doctors say hospitals were not made to use so much oxygen.Member of medical staff adjusts oxygen supply in French hospitalShortages are dogging the fight against the coronavirus. At the Bradford Royal Infirmary (BRI) only possible to test six staff for virus per day, consultants make own personal protective equipment and BRI’s Dr John Wright reports there’s an urgent need to save oxygen. Estimated peak of epidemic mainstay of treatment is to keep patients breathing are issues preoccupying us for ventilators, oxygen.  UK is low down international ventilator league table but put in orders for more, appears to be a bit of run on them and we’re worried our order won’t arrive in time to meet the Covid-19 peak. There is growing evidence simple machine used by patients with sleep apnoea (snoring and interrupted breathing) in their own bedrooms is effective alternative. Dr Tom Lawton, one of ingenious intensive care consultants, managed to get a 100 from local manufacturer. Safety screens protect pharmacists at Boots but others put at risk. High street pharmacists “at risk”of catching, spreading, coronavirus by lack personal protective equipment (PPE), professional body says. The Royal Pharmaceutical Society members don’t have right equipment, masks, gloves or aprons. Health Secretary Matt Hancock said pharmacists are the key health care professionals entitled to PPE from NHS England millions of PPE is needed. Chief pharmaceutical officer Keith Ridge said government arranged for equipments to pharmacists who feel abandoned on the frontline. Doing their jobs to help others but feel endangered putting lives at risk. A Boots pharmacist speaking to a customer from behind a safety screenThe government is accused it failed to deploy the 5,000 contact tracing experts employed by councils to limit spread of coronavirus. The environmental health worker’s local government experienced contact tracing prevents infections to spread, outbreak norovirus, salmonella, legionnaires’ disease. A spokesperson for Public Health England (PHE), which leads on significant outbreaks, said the organisation did not call environmental health workers to carry out contact the tracing for coronavirus and local health protection teams not effective.

Airlines adopt problematic practice Slot resale: Airlines buy and sell slots like currency. In February 2016, Oman Air paid the Air France-KLM $75m a pair of prime early morning slots. Slot sitting: Airline can’t find buyers for slots give it away free to partner airlines to hold a slot long term, Airlines don’t make or lose money. And Ghost flights: Airlines send the empty planes to fill slots. Airlines lose money on empty flight not as much as lost slot. Covid-19 decreased demands force the airlines to fly ghost flights to stop losing slots but is not enough. UK airline Flybe declared bankruptcy due to strain. The Airline industry to lose $113B decreased demand. So critics say UK authority slot coordinator must relax rules to prevent airlines losing money, wasting jet fuel and damaging environment. Its not first time industry stopped,  “use it or lose it” rule 9/11, credit crunch financial crisis. Care homes ‘refused kits because stock reserved for England’GlovesProtective equipment needed for staff to who work in care homes deprived by an excuse its for England only. A care home owner in Wales says she was refused a personal protective equipment(PPE) her suppliers are reserving stock for English customers. Ceri Roberts runs two care homes in Porthmadog and Criccieth in Gwynedd. She told BBC Wales two suppliers declined to sell to her when she tried to buy aprons and gloves for her staff. The Welsh Government said care homes could access PPE through councils if they experienced issues. One supplier told her it was selling stock “on behalf of Public Health England.” Ms Roberts said she was aware of problem on Wednesday morning. “I tried to buy them, but only customers in England allowed to,” as said. Supplies, protective equipment two care homes needs for 78 residents in each home and cared for by two people respectively. Prince Charles sent a letter of gratitude to all posties.20200510_09470820200410_151345Royal Mail puts “profits before safety” as postal workers say company is failing to protect them from risk of catching coronavirus. Shortage of gloves, masks, hand sanitiser employees tolď the BBC. They claim social distancing at work is “almost impossible.” Royal Mail says it invested £15m in protective equipment and the health and well-being of staff is their top priority. Last two weeks, staff at eight Royal Mail sites and three in Scotland left over safety concerns. The BBC saw footage of employees working shoulder -to-shoulder in a sorting office, without social distancing measures.Watford General HospitalJohn Alagos, 24, became ill and died on Friday worked at the Watford General Hospital in Hertfordshire. His mother Gina Gustilo told BBC the family waiting to hear if he tested positive for Covid-19 to help them isolate. The hospital closed to new patients on Saturday due to the problems with oxygen equipment now opened. It said it ensured staff had right level of protection but tell people to stay home to avoid spreading virus. People told to stay at home not to go to hospital if its without the adequate equipments. Many people lost jobs some given loans they are held responsible for in default. The worst austerity is suffered by those who raised family to replenish the earth discriminated against by government pension at 60 years. Some postcodes of 60 years in London and Coventry given pension and bus passes to 60 years olds. They enjoy retirement pension but their AGE MATES born on same dates denied, pension age is extended by government. Young graduates have no jobs but old pensioners forced to work doesn’t make sense forced to continue working after pension age. In Wakefield a man in his 80’s still working didn’t want to stop but didn’t realise to claim a state retirement pension and continue to work. Pension service pays a backdated lump £140,000 and extra £185 a week but deprives age mates by unfair treatment of pensions.

Caroline, who wants to use her first name only said without help of support from Stoke-on-Trent food bank “I don’t know where I would be right now.” “The volunteers are amazing people,” she said. “The biggest thing in my experience is you are not judged, no matter what your background, nothing matters, just that you are made aware so educated in where to go to get help and move you from that situation.”People talking about using food banks said, “It means they can eat get healthy.” She earned up to €1,000 in week with a commission before becoming pregnant with her daughter now nine. Caroline returned to England about 18 months later fell pregnant with her son, seven, but the relationship with her children’s father broke down and he remained in the Netherlands. She had no support with childcare and complications after her children’s births left her unable to work full time. Rising damp in their privately rented home meant she was spending £400 a month on utilities and had to top-up the rental payments not fully covered by housing benefit. She said at times it felt like “chaos” where she had “no control over anything.” “I had ebbs and waves when living off barely anything,” she said. And so while volunteering at children’s centres given her first token for the food bank.Stock food bank image20200409_122015Scant food cupboardDeprived families without food still face government delays a £15:00 weekly free school meal voucher unfit for aristocrat cat and dog a day. Government scheme UK to poor children in school lockdown, lack emergency food supply. Some food banks are stolen so no donation schools buy their own vouchers for desperate families. Parents wait 10 days for such a government voucher. Department for Education to provide extra cash to schools facing unavoidable costs. Under government scheme, families eligible for free school meals in England must receive £15 a week per child. Edenred company appointed to manage scheme struggles to meet demand, even after its website rebuilt Easter weekend. The nation’s class system ensures upper class multibillionaires are paid millions of pounds each year to indulge in their lavish luxury wasteful lifestyle but can’t provide for children they deprive from God’s resources available to all people.

Farmers without buyers forced to throw away milk down the drain can donate it to food banks so government pays them. Caroline said staff at the Stoke-on-Trent food bank are “angels” And by collecting food once a month staff helped signpost her towards other support services. She was too proud to admit I needed help, she said. But I don’t think pride has any part to play these days in visiting a food bank because, if you need help, it is one of the best places you can go.” Caroline, who lives in Stone, added: “I am hoping for a brighter future. I am settled so the children are settled, I do not have debts, it feels amazing to be in this position. So “When I was at my lowest I never would have seen myself where I am now. “But if it were to happen again, I will go back to a food bank. These threats are always there for anybody, anything can happen around that corner.”Sarah too got help after she was seeking help from a food bank among millions of people suffering poverty in Britain. It is interesting people assume there in no poverty in advanced countries. So think people collect gold on the streets to live lavish super abundant lifestyles. This is far from the reality of millions suffering unable to feed themselves, unemployed disabled, wait three to six months to be assessed for basic necessities of life. And without money many starve to death in silence as treated like scum of the earth. Do not be fooled life is glamorous for all in Britain especially those taking huge loans given to human traffickers liars who promise them “jobs” in Britain. The truth machines took over millions of jobs, electric cars soon no needs for the humans drivers. AI robots will work so there is real concern of job losses as big brands close and lay off millions of workers globally. Do not let anyone fool you to deceive you about the wealth or riches in Britain. The carefully managed manicured lawns and riches are not just freely available as traffickers promised. Lie to cage you in shipping containers to suffocate you as found dead in Britain. People overloaded in boat drown at sea exploited by traffickers. Errol Graham death: Nottingham man starved after benefit stopped in Britain.Errol GrahamErrol Graham had history of depression and the relatives of this man starved to death after his benefits stopped said this evil cruel system is “not fit for purpose.” Errol Graham, 57, weighed four-and-a-half stone (28.5kg) when his body was found by bailiffs who broke into his Nottingham council flat to evict him. An inquest found his loss of income caused huge distress.”Daughter-in-law Alison Turner said it was “heartbreaking… it’s horrific to die like that.” The case raised in Commons by Debbie Abrahams MP, called for independent inquiry of cases people died after Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) reviewed care.Pine View flats, RadfordMr Graham’s last contact with officials approached about rent arrears. After rarely seen lost contact from DWP and his employment and support allowance (ESA) was stopped in August 2017. This affected his housing benefit it ceased on 10 October. ‘No food in his flat’ the last official contact with housing provider Nottingham City Homes, heard shouting and punching door on visit in February 2018. PC Emily Dunn told inquest no signs Mr Graham injured but he “looked very thin.” She added there was no food in the property, other than a couple of tins of fish in cupboard five years out of date. The flat had no gas, no electricity, inquest heard, with “significant mail” by front door. The medical cause of death was recorded as starvation. As assistant coroner Dr Elizabeth Didcock said: “The sudden loss of all income, and the threat of eviction caused huge distress, worry, and significant financial hardship. “Loss of income and housing final devastating stressors had a significant effect on his mental health. “Safety net surrounding vulnerable people like Errol in British society had holes within it.”Debbie Abrahams MPMP Debbie Abrahams said treatment of some claimants a “serious concern” Miss Turner told BBC: “It is so heartbreaking, horrific, for someone to die like that, the failure he suffered, he didn’t deserve it. “Its shocking the system is not fit for purpose. “He was without money for six to eight months. “Errol didn’t physically bring himself to talk to strangers or ask for level of help lost out not here today.” Sophie Corlett of mental health charity Mind, said: “Its the most vulnerable who we hear are slipping through net. “This gentleman as many people have lifelong conditions unlikely to change yet they are recalled again and again for face to face “assessments” people find very challenging.” DWP said its establishing a serious case panel to review its work. A spokesman added: “This tragic complex case and our sympathies are with Mr Graham’s family.” Over 5000 people in UK died in 2019 from austerity poverty. Benefits officials’ apologise after mum’s suicide due to her benefits stopped.Jodey WhitingJodey Whiting suffered physical and mental health issues. The mother of a disabled woman who took her own life after some benefits stopped was given a personal apology by government officials. Jodey Whiting, 42, from Stockton, had some payments stopped after she missed a capability assessment because she was in hospital with pneumonia. The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) later admitted mistakes were made and paid the family compensation. Senior officials travelled to Teesside to explain what changes have been made. Ms Whiting, a mother of nine, suffered physical and mental health issues, curvature of spine and a brain cyst, and took 23 tablets each day. Following her death in 2017, an independent inquiry found the DWP did not follow procedures to telephone and visit Ms Whiting after she missed the appointment. Process of complaints takes too long so people suffer without food, rent or heating living in the cold.Parents fightingThe most serious complaints about DWP agencies like Child Maintenance Service sometimes take years to be resolved. So children go to school without breakfast. Some become homeless, sleeping in the streets in freezing cold begging for food. People with the most serious complaints on Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) wait 18 months before the case is investigated. BBC Radio 4’s Money Box learnt nearly two-third of investigations miss the target to be solved in 20 weeks. A man in dispute with one of its agencies called the delay “obscene.” The DWP said it understands “the impact of waiting for investigation has on people and their families.” The most common complaints to DWP includes failure to follow proper procedures, excessive delays and poor customer service. Alan, not his real name, said it took four-year wait in total before his case is resolved. He complained to the government-run Child Maintenance Service (CMS) in November 2017. It took thousands of pounds of redundancy payment from his bank account. The dispute made his existing mental health problems worse left him “flatlining” he says. Unable to work is “getting poorer by the day.” And drained so ‘Exhausted’ by procedure after 18 months, Alan’s case unresolved was given the permission to complain to Independent Case Examiner (ICE) and CMS, pension payments and disability benefits. Alan’s complaint accepted, but took more than a year before someone was assigned to investigate it. After that Money Box saw figures suggesting two-thirds of cases take longer than 20-week target half take six months or longer. So this means that hundreds of people face a wait of more than two years for their complaints to be resolved once accepted by ICE. Many die before their case dealt with and becomes too late in one of the richest nations in the world. Money is returned to chest while millions die in austerity poverty Britain. The universal credit rollout is delayed again to 2024PaulaPaula’s universal credit payment wasn’t enough to live on its cuts down payment so sanctions people deprived. “It scares people” and siphons money to assessors not doctors who cut people off payment new delay pushed to September 2024. It denies claimants would lose money as a result of the change. Discussions lead to delays recorded by the BBC team series Universal Credit: Inside Welfare State, on Tuesday. Six payments into one beset by problems, with claimants wait five to six weeks for the payments to start and many reports of people falling into debt, and having to resort to food banks as a consequence.People queue at job centrePeople transferring to universal credit have to wait five to six weeks for first payment. Addvance loan payments of the benefit introduced to help people through the five weeks with no money coming is blamed for putting claimants into debt. Once the benefit comes through the payments are reduced to pay off the advance loaned claimants. These changing circumstances such as moving in with new partner affect some people. Fewer people report changes because it is said by film-makers allowed access to meetings inside Department of Work and Pensions. Officials ponder what to do to help as programme shows Bolton mum Paula struggling to feed family as her universal credit. Payment of £500 a month with deductions paid for loans of five-week wait. It includes rent, council tax, water bills, bus fares, electric and gas bills, shoes clothes for winter cold months,  TV licence, food. She ends up at food bank Paula told debt counsellor.Paula at foodbankPaula goes to a local food bank for food donated by the public to help the people starving. Universal credit cut off money of family without support falling into a loan taken in advance repayment.” She added benefit deductions to pay off the advance, leave people “constantly trying to catch up” often without food or basic necessities of life. Neil Couling, a senior civil servant in charge of rollout for past five years, is filmed telling a Whitehall meeting: “We’ve got a lot of anecdotal evidence of people scared of universal credit. “It’s serious issue for us, in terms of completing the project by December but I’m urging people not to panic.” The people seen as “projects” by privileged without understanding of poverty in UK cause more harm than good to the poor.Neil Couling in meetingThree, six, nine months doesn’t matter if headline says: ‘Delay, disaster he says’.“I will say, ‘Go safe, put claimants first and I’ll take beating.'”‘Hugely embarrassing’ Despite problems, Mr Couling thinks the universal credit if implemented will be successful as “right thing to do.” System to form bedrock of social security in the next 30 years.” Expects universal credit to continue to grow with 2.6m people in  September last year: “Cannot put brakes on, if we get something wrong disrupts their lives got no alternative bank to go to get help we are payer of last resort.” Labour Shadow Work Pension Secretary Margaret Greenwood says news “hugely embarrassing” for government called for universal credit to be scrapped. The public have little faith in it many afraid of it,” said Ms Greenwood. Government says universal credit introduced slowly. Its “biggest change to welfare system in a generation, bringing six benefits into one monthly payment offering support to the most vulnerable people in society said Mr Quince. Sad its least in society in need deprived to cater for the richest billionaires in society who can afford to provide for themselves. The stipends of £500million for repairs and £80 million annual pocket money plus £21 million lose change, £5 billion to cut 45 minute train journey millions dies in austerity poverty Britain. Some are given tents to sleep in freezing cold. Decaying corpse found at Harlow’s ‘human warehouse’Templefields House in HarlowA cleaner at a troubled former office block used to house homeless revealed she and other staff discovered a “weeks-old corpse” in a room. Tania resigned from her job after being asked to clean room where man’s body was discovered in June 2019. Investigation by BBC East and Panorama found evidence security staff “lost control”at Templefields House in Harlow Essex. The building described as “human warehouse” by a tenant, BBC found hundreds of families rehoused by London boroughs in office blocks and industrial estates in Harlow  living next to drug addicts and ex-prisoners. Robert Halfon MP for Harlow describe practice “social cleansing.” Essex Police confirms death not treated suspicious. Identity of dead man was not disclosed.Bikes at office turned into housingResidents complained of isolation and surrounded by warehousing or business centres. Tania did not want surnamed used became employee of the landlord Caridon, with partner Matt who is head of security at Templefields after they lived at the block as tenants. “The smell hits you before you opened door, there were flies everywhere its awful,” she said. “He’d been there five or six weeks decomposed.”The couple said a number of people took their own lives at the time they lived and worked there. Current staff told undercover BBC reporter other tenants died. A reporter was told “we’ve cleaned a dead man’s room was found hanging waited for the body bag stood in hallway to make sure no-one come in while he was cleared.” So management at building concerned with getting room cleaned and letting it out to a new tenant, Tania said. “I was in complete shock, but it was more of a concern to get another room needed to be cleaned that day”, she told the BBC.Terminus HouseProperty owner Caridon’s statement is “We break mould in social housing and stigma given to social tenants. “Unlike other private developers offer housing-related support to tenants vulnerable within community.” “We successfully helped tenants turn their lives around with supportive service provided going above and beyond for individuals.” The ordinary people treated this way many once successful in society. Their lives is made worse by austerity poverty that lacks resources for proper care. Many lost homes as mental health patients in  the community system so overwhelmed they are abandoned without adequate care. Sadly things are getting worse the way things are being handled.Disabled people ‘pulled into poverty’ as benefits falls short. Sydney, cares for disabled mother, says the current system isn’t working for her. Half 14 million people living in poverty in the UK are disabled or live with someone who is, research for a charity suggests. Joseph Rowntree Foundation blames high cost of coping with disability and struggles disabled people face in finding job to pay enough to live on after bills. Executive director Claire Ainsley said plight fundamentally wrong. Government says it is committed to tackling poverty, spending £55bn this year on benefits for the disabled people. Annual report, published for Friday, the charity urges: reform of benefits system to make it more flexible for jobs to help people with disabilities progress out of low pay. Correlation between disability and poverty analysis demonstrates how closely connected the two are across the UK. The “shamefully high numbers” of disabled people put in poverty by social security system fails to protect them. Its a fact disability as indicator of poverty shows economy is not working for all, Ms Ainsley said.purseResearchers found compared with rest of population people with disabilities less likely to be working or worked an average 13 fewer hours a week. Live in households worse off by £200 a week. So almost 4.5 million of informal adult carers in UK, s quarter living in poverty, with working-age female carers at risk. A ingle mum-of-three Jennifer Hobbs cares for both12-year-old son, Nathan, with neurodevelopmental disorder, and elder son Stanley 15 has heart problems so time-consuming gave up cleaning job relies on food banks. “It really infuriates me,” Jennifer from Bristol told BBC. Not much help out there for families with a disabled adult children forget disabled children turn are disabled adults. Think to myself, what’s going to happen to my son when my son gets older if he can’t work because of his disabilities. He will get penalised and end up on the dole or on disability benefits for the rest of his life. “I don’t want him to have to resort to food banks, like I do.”Jen HobbsJen Hobbs from Bristol cares for two disabled sons. Imran Hussain, Action for Children’s policy and campaigns director, said austerity problems with universal credit left too many families like Jennifer’s “fighting to keep heads above water”called their predicament “is appalling.” He urged ministers to: provide more support to help parents with caring responsibilities to find work to restore value of children’s benefits to pre-austerity levels for basic necessities. Disability benefits to help cope with the extra costs of life conditions research by disability equality charity Scope shows it falls short. Households with disabled members who claim any income-related benefits frozen for past four years while prices rise, says Scope. James Taylor, its head of policy, campaigns, said findings were shocking, but not surprising. “Life costs much more for disabled people on average £583 a month. “Huge numbers of disabled people denied opportunity to get into and stay in work cost more in terms support.” Department for Work and Pensions wanted one million more disabled people to be in work by 2027 compared with 2017 consulted on how businesses can support disabled people to thrive in work. It plans to introduce national strategy for disabled people. Its interesting £80 million can fix big Ben clock but no funds for the NHS hospitals with shortage of doctors and the nurses overworked by unGodly hours. So many overwhelmed are suffering needlessly others commit suicide due to extreme time tables and inhumane long hours of cutting budgets. Some doctors working days without sleep is happening in one of the most advanced nations on earth. A government civil servant described it as displaying “bleeding stumps” – where departments told to talk about scaling back their services drastically without money promised during election given to them. Empty promises deceive public for votes for politician multimillionaires who say” watch my lips no school fees for university students then increase fees from £3000 per year to £9000 per year for home students. Do not deliver fake promises but get increase in perks, free lunch and second home allowance, more pay but not hand over the money promised to hospitals and schools.Health Minister Robin SwannDepartment of Health facing waiting list in crisis pictured centre Health Minister Robin Swann. And Dr Esmond Birnie an economist from a University said all the parties can no longer have it own way if executives don’t find new ways to raise revenue need more cuts made. It leads to domino effect of shortage of staff and a longer waiting list for a desperately ill people.  “It’s a hard decisions constantly puts pressures on such systems allowed to build up. “The hope is money would arrive from London to ease the burden ultimately money didn’t arrive amounts people hoped for less its decisive crunch point so something has to give.” Holding Stormont purse strings is Conor Murphy interviewed on Thursday, would not be drawn on cuts could after a final budget drafted is no surprise to the taxpayers.Stock school pupil imageEducation needs a £billions of pounds to boost budget shortfall as schools are in debt. Its suggested Westminster must do something immediately to lend helping hand. That seems unlikely to happen as the government committed extra £1bn pledges in New Decade, New Approach deal but Mr Murphy heads to Whitehall again next week to try his luck. He’ll do that after sitting down with executive colleagues to decide if Stormont budget should be delivered but Westminster’s budget set for 11 March. Officials need funding to start addressing the backlog of debt issues. Ministers made elections  pitches publicly and privately now the nation waits as multi billionaires get all lavish luxury jet set lifestyle paid for by these poor tax payers indulging them to flaunting faces and whine and complain about not being happy or thriving.

Extra £427m for education in Northern Ireland requested same as England too.

Its appalling austerity poverty, Sunday Mirror reports NHS England agreed a £7m contract with a US firm, praised by US President Donald Trump, to help the health service identify its most expensive patients. A company, Optum, running nine-month programme trains managers to rank people according to their risk of illness, the paper says. The contract raises fears people to be turned down for operations because of age or weight, the paper claims. The paper’s leader column says it makes it hard to believe Mr Johnson’s promise that the NHS is “not for sale” pledge repeated by the health service in its response to the story. Meanwhile government’s funding formula for flood defences in England is to be rewritten, according to the Sunday Times, because of concerns it favours wealthy southern areas over parts of the north.Its the third weekend in a row that parts of UK have been hit by flooding. And the Environment Agency’s formula is based on property values, explains the Times, meaning that nearly two thirds of the £2.6bn-budget goes to areas of London. The new model takes into account the impact on health potentially diverting hundreds of millions of pounds protects the country’s poorest flood-prone regions. And a pub that claims to be the inspiration for The Bull in The Archers is reportedly called last orders for final time, because of financial difficulties.The Bull Inn in Rippingdale, LincolnshireLocals say the Bull Inn in Rippingdale, Lincolnshire, is the inspiration for the Bull in Archers. According to Sunday Times, locals in the town of Rippingdale in Lincolnshire say the Bull Inn inspired not only the Ambridge pub but the idea for the Radio 4 series itself. The Times notes the claim is contested; villagers in Inkberrow make same assertion about their watering hole, The Old Bull. It is so beyond belief love of money and greedy wealthy allowed to reduce state of many roads to poor countries. Britain one of richest countries in the world yet the majority of people in Britain suffering.  The recent cold snap may have made the pothole problem even worsePublic spending watchdog is concerned about impact of funding shortfalls on roads. Years of underinvestment led to a deterioration of roads or Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon said. Ms Mallon was reacting to figures showing £1.7m in compensation paid for vehicles damaged by potholes between 2016 and 2019. The figures obtained by BBC News the under Freedom of Information (FOI) Act. In 2019 £500,000 compensation was paid to drivers.Dept for Infrastructure minister Nichola MallonNichola Mallon said winter weather had impacted condition of roads In 2018, more than £750,000 was paid out by the Department for Infrastructure. Ms Mallon said: “Like so many people, I am aware and concerned about upkeep of our roads. “Years of underinvestment as well as the impact of severe winter weather has led to deterioration in the road network and in recent years this has impacted on the level of vehicle damage compensation payments.”Top 5 roads in NI for defects in 2019.

The FOI statistics on the number of road defects across Northern Ireland were released to BBC News NI by the Department for Infrastructure. Road defects includes: cracks, potholes recorded carriageways, hard shoulders and lay-bys. The lack of investments by the Government is said to be the cause of poor quality roads in Britain. There are too many roads to be able to list in this post but in the public domain to do your own research to see the facts and data for yourself. As roads are essential transports for vehicles the drivers using such roads damage their vehicles due to poor conditions of the roads. Austerity poverty extends from working families sleeping in their car, tents or in bed and breakfast hotels because people do not have homes. The cost of social care has been cut many mentally ill people are homeless and sleep on the streets in UK which never happened in recent years. Social services in charge of the people unable to look after themselves have their grants and funding cut so they are roaming the streets in tattered clothes. Many often seen bare foot and unkempt without CPN community nurses to care for them or ensure they take medicines prescribed to control moods. May God intervene to save Britain in Jesus Name. Meanwhile expenses for peers in House of lords are spiralling “out of control” according to analysis by Sunday Times. The number of peerages is increasing, while money claimed by peers rose by 29% in a year and they recently voted to give themselves pay rise, the paper says. The result? A “triple hit for taxpayers,” the report claims.

Joseph Shabalala, who helped introduce the sound of traditional Zulu music to the world died aged 78. The musician was best known as the founder and director of choral group Ladysmith Black Mambazo, won five Grammy awards and featured heavily on Paul Simon’s Graceland album. They reached number 15 in UK charts with a cover of Swing Low Sweet Chariot, for  1995 Rugby World Cup. Shabalala died in hospital in Pretoria, South Africa, the band’s manager said. “Yes it’s true. Mr Shabalala passed on this morning,” Xolani Majozi told the South Africa Times. “The group is on tour in the US, but have been informed are devastated because the group is family.” The South African Government paid tribute to the musician in a tweet, saying : “We would like to extend our condolences on the passing of Joseph Shabalala who was the founder of the group Ladysmith Black Mambazo. It added in Xhosa, “Ulale ngoxolo Tata ugqatso lwakho ulufezile.” (Rest in peace, father, your race is complete.)Ladysmith Black Mambazo remember singing and dancing with Nelson Mandela.Ladysmith Black Mambazo singing and dancing with Nelson Mandela. Born in 1941, Shabalala was the eldest of eight children living on a farm in Tugela, near the town of Ladysmith in South Africa. “When I a young boy I dreamt of becoming an educated person; maybe a teacher, doctor or something like that,” he told South Africa’s The Citizen in 2014 . However, he was forced to leave school at the age of 12 when his father died, working on the family farm and, later, in a local factory. In his spare time, he would sing with friends in a local group called the Blacks. “The young boys when they get together, they started to sing the songs, until the mamas and the neighbours said, ‘Hey, do it again,'” he told the BBC . “It was just like that. They were calling, ‘Do it again, do it again’.”Ladysmith Black Mambazo dominated South African Music in the 1970s and 1980sLadysmith Black Mambazo dominated South African Music in 1970s and 1980s. He became leader and main composer for the choir, fusing indigenous Zulu songs and dances with South African isicathamiya, an a capella tradition that was frequently accompanied by a soft, shuffling style of dance. They were re-christened Ladysmith Black Mambazo, a name that was significant on several levels: Ladysmith represented their hometown, Black referenced the black oxen that were the strongest on the farm, and Mambazo, from the Zulu word for axe, symbolized the group’s ability to cut down the competition. A radio performance in 1970 led to a recording contract, and in 1973 they released Africa’s first gold-selling album, Amabutho. They achieved global recognition after being recruited to sing on Paul Simon’s multi-million-selling Graceland album, most notably on Homeless, a song Shabalala co-wrote with Simon, based on the melody for a traditional Zulu wedding song.

The band joined Simon on a subsequent world tour. In return, he produced their next three albums in 1987’s Shaka Zulu winning a Grammy for best traditional folk recording. Shabalala retired from active performance in 2014 shortly after performing at a memorial concert for Nelson Mandela. He continued to teach traditional choral music, while four of his sons and one grandson continued his legacy within Ladysmith Black Mambazo. The musician was with his wife Thokozile Shabalala, in his final moments, said Xolani Majozi. As news of his death spread, tributes poured in from around the world. “My friend, a giant humble man, Joseph Shabalala, passed away this morning,” wrote South African singer Sipho “Hotstix” Mabuse on Twitter . “My sincere condolences to his family and friends.” “I am deeply saddened,” wrote Herman Mashaba, former mayor of Johannesburg . “You will be remembered as a giant of South African music and a pioneer of the industry.”

WORKPLACE HARASSMENTS

A woman in the workplace under pressure, as two colleagues talk behind her backNew advice issued to prevent workplace harassment includes pub banter and the social media attacks can be classed as workplace harassment, UK’s equality watchdog warned. New guidance is set to prevent harassment or victimisation in workplace issued by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). The advice includes developing of effective policies, training and knowing how to deal with complaints. In time, the new guidance to become statutory measures enforceable by law. The EHRC said there was “overwhelming” need for tougher action on harassment in workplace. And harassment of an offensive, humiliating, intimidating, hostile and the degrading behaviour relating to race, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability or religion. wp-1579880614012.jpgA survey conducted by trade union body TUC in 2019, more than 70% of LGBTQ+ workers said that they had experienced sexual harassment at work, while seven out of 10 Asian and Black workers reported experiencing racial harassment at work. Many incidents of Islamophobia and antisemitism were also reported. One-third of respondents had experienced age discrimination in the past year, and women were 8% more likely to experience age prejudice than men. “What one worker – or even a majority of workers seems harmless fun or ‘banter’ another find unacceptable. A worker complaining about conduct may be considered by others overly sensitive or prudish,” says the report. ” Important to understand a conduct can amount to harassment or sexual harassment even if not intended respect boundaries.”wp-1579880586693.jpgAnd the EHRC chief executive Rebecca Hilsenrath said guidance and updated in response to “widespread demand” to “Policies and procedures are only fit for purpose if organisational culture means transgression is treated seriously.” “Our employees at work must know they are safe protected not discriminated against victimised or harassed.” The seven-step advice from the EHRC aims to ensure the employers develop effective anti-harassment policies.  Ms Hilsenrath said recent high-profile cases had “shone an important light on the continued unfair harassment many women and men face in the workplace” and shows more still needs to be done to modernise working cultures. School play ground bullying has turned into workplace harassment and political racist rhetorics. wp-1579940729162.jpg“We know leading businesses are trying to make a difference in this important space and we want to support you to do that,” she stressed. Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) told the BBC that it welcomed the new guidance because employers needed to ensure employees are safe at work and there is “a zero tolerance approach to sexual harassment.” “Line managers should be trained and feel confident to implement organisation’s policies and dealing with concerns or complaints,” said CIPD’s head of public policy Ben Willmott. Leaders and managers as role models must help make an organisation as inclusive and respectful as possible and should be quick to pick up on any inappropriate behaviour to prevent any issues from escalation,” he said. wp-1579880604764.jpgThe watchdog wants businesses to:

  • Have an anti-harassment policy
  • Engage staff fairly in their roles
  • Assess and mitigate risks at work
  • Set up a direct reporting system
  • Deliver training for staff members
  • Know what to do about complaints
  • Deal with sexual harassment, third parties
  • Seek the Best Interest Of All Always
  • Have consideration for others
  • Empathise with people you meet
  • Be aware of hierarchy  protocol
  • Guard your lips on need to know basis

AUSCHWITZ TRUELIFE STORY

Survivors of Auschwitz leave through the infamous gates of Auschwitz I after the liberationAuschwitz true life story of death camps of Nazi Holocaust liberated 27 January by Soviet troops in 1945. On 27 January 1945, Soviet troops cautiously entered Auschwitz. Primo Levi – one of the most famous survivors – was lying in a camp hospital with scarlet fever when the liberators arrived. The men cast glances at the sprawling bodies, at the battered huts and at us few still alive”, he would later write. “They did not greet us, nor did they smile; they seemed oppressed not only by compassion but by… the feeling of guilt that such a crime should exist.” “We saw emaciated, tortured, impoverished people,” soldier Ivan Martynushkin said of liberating the death camp. “We could tell from their eyes that they were happy to be saved from this hell. In less than four years, Nazi Germany systematically murdered at least 1.1 million people at Auschwitz. Almost one million were Jews. Those deported to the camp complex were gassed, starved, worked to death and even killed in medical experiments. The vast majority died in the Auschwitz II death camp is Auschwitz-Birkenau. Six million Jewish people died in Holocaust Nazi campaign to ‘eradicate’ Europe’s Jewish population. Auschwitz was at the centre of the antiSemitic and eugenics genocide of those not of Aryan stock.

What was the Holocaust?

When the Nazis came to power in 1933 they began to strip Jewish people of all property, freedoms and rights under the law. After the German invasion and occupation of Poland in 1939, the Nazis started deporting Jewish people from Germany and Austria to Poland, where they created ghettos to separate them from the rest of the population. In 1941, during German invasion of USSR, the Nazis began campaign of extermination in earnest. Nazis spoke about their invasion as a race war between Germany and Jewish people, as well as the Slavic population and the Roma.Groups of German Einsatzgruppen soldiers out across newly conquered lands in Eastern Europe to massacre civilians. By the end of 1941, they had killed 500,000 people, and by 1945 they had murdered about two million – 1.3 million of whom were Jewish. Behind lines, Nazi commanders experimenting with ways to kill en masse. They feared shooting people too stressful for their soldiers, came up with more efficient means of murder. Experimental gas vans had been used to kill mentally disabled people in Poland as early as 1939. Poisonous fumes were pumped into a sealed compartment to suffocate those inside. By the winter of 1941, the Nazis had constructed gas chambers at Auschwitz. Nazi leaders met in January 1942 to coordinate industrial slaughter. At Wannsee Conference, as it became known, they agreed to what they called a “final solution to the Jewish question” – killing the entire European Jewish population, 11 million people, by extermination and forced labour.

What was Auschwitz?

Auschwitz was originally a Polish army barracks in southern Poland. Nazi Germany invaded and occupied Poland in September 1939, and by May 1940 turned the site into a jail for political prisoners. This area with the infamous lie Arbeit Macht Frei written above the entrance in German meaning work sets you free became known as Auschwitz I.But as war and Holocaust progressed the Nazi regime greatly developed the site. The first prisoners to be gassed were a group of Polish and Soviet prisoners in August 1941. Work began on a new camp, Auschwitz II-Birkenau, the following month. This became site of huge gas chambers where hundreds of thousands murdered until November 1944, and crematoria was where their bodies were burned. German chemicals company IG Farben built and operated a synthetic rubber factory at Auschwitz III-Monowitz. Other private companies like Krupp and Siemens-Schuckert also ran factories nearby, to use prisoners as slave labour. Both Primo Levi and Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel survived Monowitz concentration camp. When Auschwitz was eventually liberated, it had more than 40 camps and subcamps.

How Auschwitz worked?

People from all over Europe crammed into cattle wagons without windows, toilets, seats or food, and transported to Auschwitz. There they were sorted into those who could work and those to be immediately killed. The latter group were ordered to strip naked and sent to  showers for “delousing” – a euphemism used for the gas chambers.

The gas chamber at Auschwitz IGuards used Zyklon B pellets to murder people in gas chamber. Nazis cremated victims in ovens.Crematorium ovens at AuschwitzGuards from “Hygienic Institute” drop powerful Zyklon-B gas pellets into the sealed chambers, and wait for people to die. It took about 20 minutes. The thick walls could not hide screams of those suffocating inside. Sonderkommandos – other prisoners, usually Jews forced to work for guards or killed would remove artificial limbs, glasses, hair and teeth before dragging corpses to incinerators. Ashes of the bodies were buried or used as fertiliser. Belongings of those gassed and those sent to work were taken for sorting in a part of the camp known as “Canada” so named because country was seen as a land of plenty.

Who were the victims?

SS guards sought to hide their crimes as Soviet troops closed in tried to destroy their extensive prisoner records making it hard to fully quantify the number of victims. Academic studies since agree that in total close to 1.3 million people arrived at Auschwitz. About 1.1 million of them died there. Jews from all across Nazi-controlled Europe made up the vast majority of the victims. Almost one million Jewish people were murdered at Auschwitz. One specific example was Hungary’s Jewish population. In the space of just two months, between May and July 1944, Hungary transported 420,000 Jewish people to Auschwitz.Hungarian Jews arriving at Auschwitz in June 1944So many Hungarian Jewish people were killed in such a short time that victims’ bodies were dropped in pits near the camp and burned. Tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews were sent to Auschwitz every day. Three quarters of them were killed on arrival. 75,000 Polish civilians, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, 25,000 Roma and Sinti, as well as Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals and political prisoners were also put to death by the German state at the Auschwitz complex.

Auschwitz Is liberated

German authorities ordered a halt to gassing and the destruction of the gas chambers and crematoria in late 1944, as Soviet troops advanced westward. The stockpile of stolen valuables in the Canada sector was shipped to Germany shortly afterwards. Determined to erase evidence of their crimes, Nazis ordered tens of thousands remaining prisoners to march west to other concentration camps, such as Bergen-Belsen, Dachau and Sachsenhausen. Those too sick to walk were left behind all who fell behind on the march were killed. Soviet forces found a few thousand survivors when they entered the camp on 27 January 1945, along with hundreds of thousands of clothes and several tonnes of human hair. Soldiers later recalled having to convince some survivors that the Nazis had truly gone. Elie Wiesel later said in a speech to mark the 50th anniversary of the liberation that the Nazi crimes at Auschwitz “produced a mutation on a cosmic scale, affecting man’s dreams and endeavours.” “After Auschwitz, the human condition is no longer the same. After Auschwitz, nothing will ever be the same.”

GOD EATS EGGS, FISH/MEATS

15688921209301073659835930686689.jpgGod ate meat with 70 elders on Mount Sinai in Exodus 24:1-18 with Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu and elders saw God of Israel and lived. They ate and drank magnificent meal. God invited 70 elders imparted with Spirit of God to help Moses. Genesis 1:26; 2: 19-20. God gave sovereign power over the animals permitting man to eat meat as part of Covenant fellowship in Genesis 26:27-31; 31:44-46; 2 Samuel3:17-21. Food is covenant meal in the Bible. In Genesis 3:21 the LORD God made garments from animal skin’s fur for Adam and Eve. The LORD God fashioned garments from animal fur skins and clothed Adam and Eve in Garden of Eden, ate meat. Genesis 1:26; 2:19-20 3;9:4, says eat flesh of animals killed in Paradise garden sacrifice as part of man’s diet but pour life blood to God into ground in Deuteronomy 12:24. God killed animals to clothe Adam and Eve and provided food eaten. God skinned animals to clothe Adam and Eve. God killed animals in Genesis so used the furs to clothe them in Bible. God ate the meat with them and told them be responsible for animals HE created for food. Treat animals well, not to splatter their blood but dig holes to pour blood into because life is in the blood their lives belong to God. God says kill and eat meat provided for food. God told Cain and Abel to hunt and cook meat for HIM in Genesis 9:1-3 so Able did. God blessed Noah and sons told them be fruitful multiply to fill earth eat animals and birds kept in Noah’s ark. Creatures crawling on ground, fish in sea man control and eats. Living things and green plants eaten as food God gives choice to eat meat and vegetables, is personal decision not FORCED on you. In Genesis 18:8 God Yahweh visited Abraham with two angels ate meat together. Abraham took some curds, milk and calf prepared set these foods before them under a tree. Foods Abraham and Sarah prepared are bread, curd, milk, and calf meals eaten together. Jesus ate meat cooked by Martha and Mary, and ate with tax collector. Jesus ate meat Passover lamb with disciples and He cooked fish for disciples at seaside.

wp-1579384711666.jpgIn Leviticus 11:1-3 The LORD told Moses and Aaron,“Speak to the people of Israel of living things to eat among all animals on the earth. Whatever parts hoof, cloven-footed, chews cud animals you can eat. Though God didn’t like how Israel in the wilderness demanded flesh to eat with bad attitude HE provided them with quail to eat in Numbers 11:4, 13, 31 – 33. Eating meat is not sin or God will not send them quail. Jesus ate meat in Luke 24 : 41-43 with His disciples when Jesus asked them, Do you have anything to eat they gave him piece of broiled fish. He took it and ate as they watched him after Jesus resurrected. Jesus cooked fish for His disciples at seaside on return ate together. In Luke 5:3-6 Jesus used boat belonging to Simon asked him to push ashore. Jesus sat and taught crowd in boat. After speaking, He told Simon, “Take boat into deep water, and lower your nets to catch fish.” Simon said, Rabbi we worked all night and caught nothing but if you say so, I’ll lower nets. They caught large number of fish nets tore net call other boats to share fishes harvested. Martha and Mary cooked meat for Jesus eaten with His disciples.20200214_191604wp-1579384729458.jpgIMG-20190829-WA0012.jpgIn Mark 7:19 Jesus said food in the stomach affects not their heart. And in Luke 22:7-15 festival of Unleavened Bread Passover lamb killed. Jesus told Peter and John “Go prepare Passover lamb for us to eat. They asked Him Where do you want us to prepare it? He told them, “Go in city to meet man carrying jug of water, follow him to house he enters. Tell owner of house teacher says, ‘Where is thenroom to eat Passover meal with my disciples?’ He will take you upstairs to show you a large furnished room. Disciples found room Jesus told them prepared a Passover lamb. Jesus ate Passover meal with apostles to celebrate Passover Exodus from Egypt. All who smeared Passover lamb’s blood on door post were not killed by death angel in Egypt.angelofdeath.jpgJesus said He is New Passover lamb of God for eternal life Jesus declared all food clean. Jesus was not a vegetarian as Bible records Jesus eating fish in Luke 24:42-43 and lamb in Luke 22:8-15. Jesus’ miracles fed crowds with fish and bread in Matthew 14:17-21. In Peter’s vision Jesus declared all foods clean including animals in Acts 10:10-15. After flood in Noah’s time, God gave permission to eat meat in Genesis 9:2-3. God never stopped permission to eat meat Christian vegetarian is a choice in Bible. God says abstain from a meat strangled, sacrificed to idols. The Bible didn’t say force your conviction on others or judge them by what they eat or don’t eat. In Romans 14 :2-3 Bible says, “One man’s faith allows him to eat everything but another’s faith is weak, eats only vegetables. The man who eats everything must not look down on him who does not or condemn the man who does for God accepts him. God says eat meat after flood in Genesis 9:3. Old Testament law commanded Israel not to eat certain foods in Leviticus 11:1-47 but never commanded against eating meat. Jesus declared all foods, clean in Mark 7:19. Christian eating meat is acceptable to God who provides food in 1 Thessalonians 5:18. If you eat and drink do it for GLORY of God in 1 Corinthians 10:31.wp-1577100682177.jpgHunting in Genesis 27:2-9 shows Isaac said, “I am old man so do not know day of death, get your quiver and bow in country to hunt wildgame for me. Prepare food for me to eat to give you blessing before I die.” Rebekah listened as Isaac spoke to Esau and Esau left to hunt game but Rebekah told Jacob, “Your father told Esau, ‘Bring game and prepare food to eat, to bless in presence of the LORD before I die.’ My son listen, Go to the flock to bring two choice young goats I will prepare food your father likes so she did, Isaac ate meat from Jacob not Esau. Proverbs 12:27 says lazy do not roast game but the diligent feed on riches of a hunt. Leviticus 17:13 “If Israelite or foreigner goes hunting and kills animals, bird for eating drain its blood into soil and cover it with earth. Proverbs 12:10 says care for animals treat them well even if you eat it. In Numbers 22:31-32 the LORD’S angel standing in road held sword in hand Balaam bowed to ground. The angel asked Balaam, “Why did you hit the donkey three times, donkey stopped you being killed treat animals kindly even if they work for you.A5dr.gifIn Romans 13:1-3 God gives power to rule by government with God’s commands do right thing to honour rules free of fear of man do what God says is right. In 1 Samuel 17:34-36 says David told Saul, “Your servant keeps sheep for his father kills lion or bear that took lamb from flock, struck, delivered out of his mouth by bare hands. Your servant struck down lions and bears uncircumcised Philistine will be like them for defying army of the living God. Solomon’s sacrifice moved God’s heart in 2 Chronicles 7:5-9 the 22,000 cattle, 120,000 sheep sacrifices to the LORD God. Solomon in 1Kings 3:2-8 sacrificed 1000 sheep as people worshipped God in Israel at Gibeon, returned to Jerusalem, stood before the ark of the Lord’s covenant and sacrificed burnt offerings to God. And in Matthew 3:3-4, John, “A voice cried out in desert ‘Prepare the way for the Lord make his paths straight wore clothes of camel’s hair and leather belt on waist his diet was locusts and wild honey and wore carmel fur. God’s law commands approve eating meat. God created humans and creatures for HIS purpose on earth. So social media needs God’s accurate biblical knowledge not radical negative emotions. Plants and vegetables are living things too harvesting fruits, seeds, berries, roots and potatoes, leaves deprives trees or orchards of their fruitful produced reserved stocks.William_Holman_Hunt_-_The_Scapegoat.jpgLamb sacrificed to God in Bible on altar and scapegoat set loose bear sins of people until Jesus died to set people free from sin. Every beast on earth and bird of the air everything creeping on earth with breath of life is given to eat and green plant for foods in Genesis 1:30. Daniel did not defile himself with food sacrificed to idols or wine asked to be given vegetables to eat and water to drink for few days eats Passover lamb. After ten days they appeare better and fatter than all the young men eating pagan foods in Daniel 1:8, 11–12, 15 Daniel refused to eat meat and the wine sacrificed to gods and idols was not vegan. Jesus returns to reign on earth the wolf and lamb will feed together so lion eat straw like ox but serpent’s food will be dust so not hurt or destroy on MY HOLY mountain in Isaiah 65:25. After Rapture and restoration of earth in the New Jerusalem creatures will be Very Very Good again perfect, death is conquered and vanquished in resurrection. So animals not hurt again because of curses from God it meat for food. Eve, Adam lived with serpent didn’t hurt them until after sin and curses. God clothed Adam and Eve with animal fur in Garden of Eden Paradise in Genesis 3:21. In Leviticus 1:6 priest given all animal skins and meat cuts in 1:3-9 performing Levitical duties. Animal hides are given to priests in Leviticus 7:8 as God’s Covenant clothing for Adam and Eve covered with fur on body.20190904_192054.jpgGod says the watch ants learn wisdom from them. Global warming impact worse rethink buying questioning eating animals, wearing leather and fur. Animals fur ethic dilemma questioned but agrees Eskimos depends on seal animals not in danger of extinction and none of the animal is wasted. The animal is put to good use accepted and consumed by them. Pasture cultivation of animal manure replenish the soil to grow crops. Many types of animal products protect weather element fashion clothing affects the climate change weather danger to life. Society fills landfill wasting prime land with good food rubbish. In cold countries clothings needs to protect elements use leather, fur animal products as viable natural productd. The environmental matters of water, food, clean air sustainable fashion product of production processed not harmful if biodegradable. The animal skins, leathers, furs use natural chemical process, finishing textiles, urine and natural organic dyes. A high-quality fur coat, leatherbag last generations compared to synthetic lifespan.faux leather, wear leatherLeather, fur have no viable alternatives that are biodegradable. Synthetic faux fur fake ‘leather’ biodegrades 50 years longer than a treated leather 5 years biodegraded. Plastic particles in soil in oceans and inside fish but genuine leather fur process proves real fur biodegrades faster than fake “faux” results more dramatic than is expected. Synthetics petroleum by-products are not renewable resource causes extraction and transport problems. God’s animals are renewable, so sustainable and God said kill and eat as lion and bears kill and eat. Extinction caused by destroying habitat of birds, bees or animals worse since veganism globalism alternative. Almonds milk drinks produces greenhouse gas effect than the plant-based milk. Vegan options have drawbacks of their own as an average person eats 2lb (900g) of almonds each year more than other countries in US almond milk sales grown 350%. In the past five years reached $2.2bn, over four times that of plant-based milk. Damages trees and carbon cycle. Versatility of almonds in foods Richard Waycott, president, CEO of Almond Board of California advocacy organization, represents majority of farmer’s enormous orchards loss can’t function without bees in agricultural honeybee. The late 20th century titanic shift taking place is depriving nectar bees from transporting pollen. Birds and insect suffer from deadly truth behind your almond milk obsession damaging the earth. Some birds have monogamous loyal partner for life caring for young’s places abandoned. Male sea horse gives birth to babies is a life lesson to the righteous to treat animals right in mercy. The greedy evil wicked are cruel to animals like Baalim says Proverbs 12:10. God gives animals food so young ravens fed when they cry in Psalms 147:9. Farmers take care of animals calm them producing better foods for good return on investment. God in covenant with wild animals, birds of the air creeping things on earth, ground to abolish bow, sword, war from land, lie in safety in peace with mankind in the New Jerusalem. Hosea 2:18, after Armageddon war Jesus comes to rule perfect earth with eternal life. This is time mankind restore to God to relate in peace with animals. Do not  misquote Bible to justify personal choice decision imposed on others. How long will the land mourn and grass of fields wither by greedy wicked exploit of animals, birds but people think God is blind to their evil ways in Jeremiah 12:4. Change will take place in man made use of resources but does not mean stop eating meat. God provided Adam with all kinds of animals named told to kill and eat in Garden of Eden.downloadfile-59.jpgGod sent Seed Jesus to crush serpent’s head to defeat death. Mugabe said if the Chinese were in the Garden of Eden they would eat snake to shut it up for good to stop sin entering the world. But Jesus did better job of letting snake live to face the consequences. God cares for sheep and five sparrows sold for two pennies not one forgotten in God’s sight in Luke 12:6. God’s righteousness like mighty mountain, judges deeply to save humans and animals, treat all well Psalms 36:6. Blessed are the merciful for they will receive mercy in Matthew 5:7, treat animal well for food. People fight for rights of animals must know God will judge those who reject Lord Jesus, fed to animals as lions ate Daniel’s enemies; Jezebel eaten by dogs without burial. In Bible animals eat people God slaughters during HIS winepress wrath judgment in Armageddon and eaten by birds and fowls in Gog and Magog wars in end times. Genesis 37:20 says, Come and let us kill and throw him in pit and say, wild beast devoured him to see what becomes of his dreams people fed to animals. In Genesis 37:33 examined it and said, my son’s tunic a wildbeast devoured him thought Joseph was torn to pieces saw animal blood.

In 2 Kings 9:36 word of LORD said Elijah the Tishbite said, ‘In property of Jezreel dogs eat flesh of Jezebel. In Ezekiel 39:17-20 the LORD GOD says to birds, beasts of field come from seas to great sacrifice on mountain of Israel eat flesh, drink blood, eat flesh of mighty men, drink blood of princes of earth rams, lambs, goats bulls fatlings of Bashan. “Eat fat and drink blood until drunk from sacrifices. In Revelation 19:17-18 angel standing in sun cries out with loud voice to birds in heaven assemble for a great supper of God to eat flesh of kings, commanders, mighty men and horses, all who sit on them, flesh of all men, free men, slaves small and great. In Revelation 19:21 Those who reject Jesus killed with sword from His mouth as He who sat on white horse and birds filled with their flesh. Isaiah 56:9 says beasts of field forest eat flesh.

In Revelation 12:4 his tail swept away the third of stars of heaven threwn to the earth. The dragon stood before woman gives birth to devour her child. In Revelation 17:16 Ten horn beasts hates harlot make her desolate, is naked eats her flesh so burn her with fire. Veganism driven by new age pagan thinks mankind reincarnate as animals so ‘killing’ fellow animal beings is not in Bible and true Christianity. Evolution misguides people to think humans evolve from animals not true. God creates all mankind in HIS OWN IMAGE AND LIKENESS AND SAID HIS CREATION IS VERY VERY GOOD in Bible in Genesis. God created a whole Adam and Eve so didn’t evolve in stages as evolution says. Mankind fell into sin but God provides the Seed Jesus to restore mankind to God. So God demands animal sacrifices on the altar in His Temples many generations since Cain and Abel, and Solomon’s highest number animal sacrifices pleased God in Bible to visit him in dreams on many occasions. You are highly valued by God to eat well to get nutrients in body. Many people lack vitamins and essential minerals necessary for healthy growth and development. Wild fires confirm mankind’s climate damage consequences so millions of animals die, petrol leaks kills fishes, whales birds in seas globally. Earth is destroyed and damaged but not exclusively by meat eating. Close-up of RikkiOceans are polluted by plastics in areas of 100% natural recycling zones losing islands paying price for luxury of West. Extreme actions don’t convince or bring change but its vendetta conflict battle between religious beliefs and new age animism. Vegan is good if adult decides but nursing mothers need to feed dietary requirement the children need growing up. Ethical animal production need education to treat animals right God says if even for food. Many fight for animal rights hardly care about how they treat the fellow humans. Its freedom of choice to exercise a right to eat meat or not to eat meat and God gave laws in society permit personal choice to kill animals to eat to ‘save’ earth from too many of them. Personification of an animal is why slaughter seems against animal life. People defend animals but trained experts deal with animals humanly not a paradigm shift rebels fighting for animals is necessary to understand God’s view as the creator of animals handles it appropriately. Processes takes years of training to qualify to ensure meat products are safe to eat. Meat industry is educated in proper ways to process meat ethically according to the Bible. Those who do not eat meat cannot decide whole world must stop eating meat. Life does not work that way as Bible shows Daniel had CHOICE to eat meat but he didn’t force the nation to stop eating meat. In Exodus, when Israelites demanded meat in a desert wilderness they complained against God to return to slavery in Egypt. God gave them meat but punished them for arrogant demands not because he banned them eating meat. After settling in Canaan they eat the Passover lamb for over 3 thousand years Moses instituted from God.A close-up of RikkiDeal with your meat eating choices at home from cooked foods.

Learn to tolerate individual differences not dictate how other’s household is run. Soya  milk production destroys the environments and forests are cut down to plow lands for soya beans. Cattle eats grass so carbon cycle properly helps the food chain. Vegan society food brands big market interest in cities and internet searches are of noticeable increase in online. Citicisms of veganism is sensitive, public is outraged to provide vegan menus. Kitchens asked in advance to get ingredients cater for vegans. Attitude towards others is important so its not your way or high way.

Fast food business has detrimental effect on environment debates show extreme plastic material of death of animals. Gory images of animals manhandled must educate people in God’s correct process in Bible. Veganism options ensure animals cared for but those with strong sentiment act like animals are humans killed. Don’t be stuck in your ways, to condemn meat eaters scarred for life by bitter revenge anger so change. Live and let others live for they do not force meat down your throat do not force to eat meat if over 18 years you make choice to eat freely what you prefer. Traditional foods as hamburgers grilled gets rid of fats. Burger recipes can be made healthy to eat. If vegan and non-vegan meals eaten at home plan menu, traditional chef must not feel slighted if meat not eaten. Do not force it on them adjust your portions and provide their vegan menu. Veganism is whole life change health needs considered if stopped eating meat. To stop killing animals is good but do the vegans campaign against killing human beings? Don’t force on other people to bother them request a vegan meal. Non-dairy milk with Dan in the backgroundStatistics show veganism popular with some younger people unappealing to community depending on meat or furs if only resources available. Asda and Greggs,”among others provide vegan foods. Local cafe owners start vegan options and breakfasts ask or prepare own foods. Vegan message reaching people turn off by hardline tactics violence in news, damage to property, shaming diners in siege of vegans vrs meat eaters.” People arguing must understand choice to respect others, if vegan don’t show video killing animal shock factor to make people think they will not eat animals. Fiery vegan’s aggressive attitude is not diet its whole life concentrated on being vegan. Dietary needs of allergies and health needs met if vegan choice is given to decide what you eat. God provides food for people to choose what to eat in Bible so study word of God to educate yourself before you decide to eat or not eat meat. In Matthew 3:11 John the Baptist said, “I baptize you with water but one coming after me is stronger and his sandals I am not worthy to tie his laces will baptize you with holy spirit and with fire in Mark 1:7. Jesus wore leather sandals laced.Ancient Biblical Jesus sandals

Leather Sandals, Purse, Bags in the Bible 

In Bible sandals is important item Solomon said, “How beautiful is your feet in sandals” in Song of Solomon 7:1. God clothes with the garment and fine leather sandals, fine linen clothes of costly garments in Ezekiel 16:10. Jesus sent twelve disiples two by two and he gave them authority over all unclean spirits told carry nothing on trip except staff, so no bread, food pouch, no money in their belts  to put on sandals not to wear two garments in Mark 6 7-9. In Luke 15:22 the father said bring robe, clothe him and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet.” In Acts angel said, “Get dressed and put on your sandals, garment and following me.” 40 years in the wilderness, your garments and your sandals didn’t wear on your feet says Deuteronomy 29:5. Ancient sandals made from flat sole of leather, wood or fibrous material strapped to feet by laces from natural leather straps in Bible times are durable and comfortable. Natural leather essential for living without transportation people walked days, months and years. Israelites walked 40 years in the desert wilderness. God’s people traveled by foot to Jerusalem 3 times a year and Jesus’ disciples traveled ancient world to proclaim the good news of God’s kingdom. So leather sandals was very important. The resources were limited. Leather is sourced locally and processed in natural environments.

TACKLING DIFFICULT PEOPLE

wp-1578833977605.jpgQuestion: “What does Bible say about dealing with difficult people?”

Answer: We all know people we find so “difficult”and deal with difficult people. A difficult person is very condescending argumentative, belligerent, selfish, and flippant, obtuse, simply rude. Difficult people “push one’s buttons” and stir up trouble. Dealing with difficult people is an exercise in patience, love, and grace. Response to difficult people from Jesus’ interactions He never displayed attitude of harsh superiority or dismissive pride. He showed His authority under control to rebuke when necessary in John 8:47 to deal with the difficult people, remain silent in John 8:6 when asked questions in Mark 11:28–29 in Scripture in Mark 10:2–3 tells story in Luke 7:40–42. In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus dealt with difficult people in love and humility: “I tell you: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you pray for all who mistreat you.wp-1578834206139.jpg If someone strikes you on a cheek turn the other. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. Give to who asks you, if anyone takes what belongs to you don’t demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you” in Luke 6:27–31. Never give tit for tat: “Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult repay evil with blessing, for this you were called inherit blessing” in 1 Peter 3:9. In dealing with difficult people guard against pride.wp-1578834096919.jpg Its important to recall advise given by apostle Paul in Romans 12:3: “By grace of God I say to you don’t think too highly of yourself. Think of yourself with the humility by faith God has given you” in Philippians 2:3–4. When difficult people approach you deal with the situation in meekness. Love is the key to “Love your neighbour as yourself” in Galatians 5:14 to show God’s love to all difficult people. Wisdom is needed to deal with difficult people. In Proverbs 12:16 patience is the key to such relationships: “A fool shows his annoyance at once but the prudent man overlooks insult.” Proverbs 20:3 says peace-making of honour to avoid strife but fools quickly quarrel.”wp-1578834341622.jpg Proverbs 10:12, encourages giving love, “Hatred stirs up conflict but love covers all wrongs.” Proverbs 17:14 is foresight on “Starting quarrel like breaching dam as disputes breaks out” Best to avoid the situation altogether choosing carefully whom we associate with: “Do not make friends with a hot-tempered person, do not associate with one easily angered” in Proverbs 22:24. Dealing with difficult people in life is unavoidable but do not respond in the flesh to bring out worst in you. Deal with difficult people by the fruit of Spirit in us in Galatians 5:22–23.wp-1578834322634.jpg By the grace of God, deal with difficult people in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, and self-control. Extend love, grace, and mercy God extends to us, careful not to be difficult people ourselves. 2 Timothy 3 says in the last days the perilous times shall come. People will be lovers of  self, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful and ungrateful. 4 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, fierce, despisers of those who are good traitors, 5 heady, highminded lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; wp-1578833839523.jpgHaving a form of Godliness, but deny HIS power from such turn away. 6 This sort creep into houses and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of truth. 8 As Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses they resist truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9 They will proceed no further their folly manifests to all 10 Know God’s doctrine for life’s purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, love, forgive like Jesus.wp-1578833896562.jpg9 They will proceed no further 11 So endure persecutions afflictions for the LORD delivers out of all. 12 Live Godly life in Christ Jesus despite persecution. 13 Evil people and seducers get worse deceiving and deceived 14 Continue in the things you learn and know 15 From childhood. You know Holy Scriptures to make you wise unto salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God is profitable doctrine for correction and instruction in righteousness 17 so the people of God perfectly furnished to do good works.

A MARRIAGE PROPOSAL FILM

Cartoon of Sleeping beauty with an engagement ring

Picture this – you’re in the cinema watching your favourite Disney movie, Sleeping Beauty, but the character’s look oddly familiar to you and your boyfriend.

The Prince then proposes to the Princess, you turn to your side – and your boyfriend is down on one knee with a ring.

This fairytale moment (literally) was created by filmmaker Lee Loechler when he proposed to his girlfriend Sthuthi David, a cardiologist.

He rented a cinema room filled with their friends and family, played the film and popped the question – and thankfully she said ‘Yes.’

Presentational white space

“When Lee first sent me an email saying he had a proposal idea for his girlfriend, I thought he just meant a Disney-style portrait of the two of them,” says Australian illustrator Kayla Coombs, who worked with Lee for six months to recreate the 1959 film.

Kayla says that after months of late night Skype calls “it was really, really satisfying to see in the video that Sthuthi picked up on a lot of the little things that we did.”

Even details like the way Sthuthi furrows her eyebrows and looks at Lee when she’s confused were put in the cartoon.

“This is probably the biggest personal commission that I’ve ever done, it was just awesome – a pleasure to be a part of,” says Kayla.

The video has gone viral, with more than 1.5m views on Youtube and Twitter seems to love it. Marriage proposals seem to be getting bigger, better and more public – with YouTube full of people finding extravagant ways to pop the question.

A man from Gloucester proposed to his girlfriend in November last year by getting a “Will you marry me?” tattoo with a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ tick box for her to fill in. For him, his girlfriend said ‘Yes’ and ticked the correct box.Picture of a tattoo saying 'will you marry me' with a 'yes or no' tick box

At the 2018 Emmy awards, Glenn Weissproposed to his girlfriend on stage whilst accepting an award – with approximately 11.5m people watching at home. It doesn’t always have to have millions of viewers though – Adam King proposed to his girlfriend Lucy Rogers in 2011 on a packed train, with a whole choir singing Bill Withers’ Lovely Day.

And finally, Nick Fenton from New Jersey proposed to his girlfriend Bridget Moore with a banner plane carrying the message “Briget will you marry me? Love Nick, she said “I do.”

Is it too much pressure?

We asked Bernadette Chapman, founder of The UK Alliance of Wedding Planners.

“It definitely increases the pressure. Personally I would hate a public proposal and I think most people would find it really embarrassing.”

However, she did like the idea of the Sleeping Beauty proposal.

“It was imaginative – there’s a difference between creating a proposal that will resonate with your loved one and creating a proposal because you are egotistical.

“People who want to propose in public need to ask themselves are you doing it for yourself or are you doing it for the person to celebrate her or showing off to impress her? Ensure its risk free and if the ring falls can be easily retrieved in safe location without death. Don’t let the extreme desire to outdo others cause you to risk your life or be in danger. To propose is good stay alive to marry her.

A most elaborate marriage proposal ever?
