PLANET X WAVES ON EARTH

b64beea69243108f538bb2b987ac9755.gifHigh waves on the earth are happening all over the world in extreme situations beyond expectations. Strong radiation of changes seawaves due to high waves built-up of sea’s energy. The rate of these rampart waves are so many people feel some cities will be drowned from them. Global warming affects the tidal waves still debated so the frontiers in Marine Science launched new section on changing Physical Oceanography to show undercurrent changing patterns in modern times. Combined with plenty of available information data from the climatology records rapid changes must be noted by those living in coastal areas. Planetary magnetic tidal impacts core of earth causing volcanoes, tsunamis and high waves. These waves of destruction are being forecast to rip through some mainlands globally, killing millions of people yet governments doing nothing about it as a documentary has claimed. Manmade efforts trying to curb, prevent or stop global warming seems to do the opposite. Flash floods in some places is now more common than ever before with damaging effects of earthquakes. Furthermore, fracking, aluminium and other toxic chemicals being pumped into atmosphere damage ozone layer of earth. The green house effect is causing acid rain back in soil seeping in oceans repeating the cycle.wave-crash-cinemagraph.gif

The UN is warning that we are now on course for 3C of global warming. This will ultimately redraw the map of the world. UN climate negotiators met for summit talks this month on new figure on data available. Until now, global efforts such as the Paris climate agreement have tried to limit global warming to 2C above pre-industrial levels. However, with latest projections pointing to an increase of 3.2C by 2100, these goals seem to be slipping out of reach. The situation is most people love the sea and are drawn to live as close by as possible. Surfers do wonders by courageous daring displays which attract more people in search of adventure. It is good to enjoy life, have fun but equally important to educate people about imminent risks involved. These rapid changes require decisions to do enough to save precious hundreds of millions of people from a miserable future,” said Erik Solheim, the UN environment chief, ahead of upcoming Bonn conference. The biggest resulting threats to cities around the world is sea-level rise, caused by expansion of water at higher temperatures and melting ice sheets on the north and the south poles. Scientists at the non-profit organisation Climate Central estimate 275 million people worldwide live in areas that will be flooded at 3C of global warming.a-musician-just-played-the-violin-while-surfing-mile-high-waves-in-portugal

Asian cities worst affected

The regional impact of these changes is highly uneven, with 4 out of 5 people affected living in Asia. Although the sea levels will not rise instantaneously, the calculated increases will be “locked in” at a temperature rise of 3C, meaning it will be irreversible though warming eventually slows down. In Osaka, Japan 5.2 million people affected At the end of a month battered by unseasonably late typhoons and relentless rain, Japan is already confronting the threat posed by climate change-induced flooding. Data recorded by meteorological department shows swaths of Osaka the commercial heart of a region whose GDP is almost as big as that of the Netherlands would disappear beneath water in a 3C world, threatening local economy and almost 1/3 wider region’s 19 million residents. Millions of people live in the urban area surrounding Osaka. A sea-level rise will reshape densely and sparsely populated areas. As a result of global sea-level rise, storm surges, other factors, economists project that coastal flooding could put almost $1tn of Osaka’s assets at risk by the 2070s, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists.article-0-07838117000005DC-359_964x592

The costs of protecting cities from rising sea levels and storms are likely to rise so is costs of repairing storm damage,” it said. “Decisions made today can have a profound impact on security, culture and lives of people of this ancient city. Like much of Japan, Osaka has network of seawalls and other coastal defences in place to combat tsunami although their effectiveness disputed in the aftermath of the 2011 triple disasters. Osaka city authorities are investing in other infrastructure to mitigate effects of flooding, but public education is vital, according to Toshikazu Nakaaki, Osaka municipal government environmental bureau. Past response was focused on reducing causes of global warming, but given that climate change is inevitable, according to Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), discussions turned to how to respond to the natural disasters that will follow,” Nakaaki said. Like other major coastal city areas it is anticipated Osaka will be affected by natural disasters caused by the climate change. So needs to establish exactly what might happen in advance to help prepare adequate tools for survival and how much financial damage it causes.Tsunami_(19)

The expected sea levels rising is a point worth noting now rather than in the future as seas are already rising. Keiko Kanai is aware that her home city is susceptible to natural disasters. She heard historically, tsunamis caused by earthquakes put many parts of Osaka underwater and knows some parts of the world are at risk too from rising sea levels,” said Kanai, who teaches at local university. But didn’t put two and two together until now did not give much thought to the idea Osaka too could be engulfed by rising sea levels. Kaori Akazawa, a nursing care consultant, said flooding was a consideration when she was deciding where in Osaka to live. When she moved there she talked to her colleagues about risks, she said. That is why shr always rented apartments on the fourth storey or higher. Alhough it is worrying, never considerd moving. In Alexandria, Egypt 3 million people are affected. On the Alexandria Corniche, waves slowly lap at a shoreline dotted with plastic chairs and umbrellas from beachside cafes. Students perch on steps of imposing Alexandria library. Its the same coastline that draws locals to its scenic vistas threatening to slowly engulf historic city as sea levels rises. 847-waspadai_perairan_babel_hujan_petir_dan_gelombang_tinggi-696x341

The IPCC reported that Alexandria’s beaches would be submerged with a 0.5-metre sea-level rise, while 8 million people would be displaced by flooding in Alexandria and the Nile Delta if no protective measures are taken. A 3C world threatens far greater damage than that. Yet for many residents, there is little public information to connect the increasingly chaotic weather and floods with climate change. The vast majority of Alexandrians do not have access to knowledge so quite worrying. Experts say governments must raise awareness of problems not wait until it too late as already happening, said 22-year-old student Kareem Mohammed. It is necessary to train people to prepare in advance for high waves damaging a city impacted by storm surges. Some do not realise urgency of such impending disasters so everyone thinks we should act on this problem 50 or 80 years from now, agreed his friend, Hazem Hassan, a student in marine biology at a nearby Alexandria University. FANTASY_Moses_Ocean_Freeway Officials maintain protective measures are being taken as Egypt spends 700m EGP [£30m] annually to protect north coast,” said Dr Magdy Allam, head of Arab Environmental Experts Union and was part of the Egyptian environment ministry. So miracles are needed to save humanity from drowning by highwaves towering over cities breaching walls too small to contain such pressures. Allam cited Mohammed Ali sea wall, built in 1830 as key protection as well as the concrete blocks lining the shoreline designed to detour flood water away from residential neighbourhoods. But critics say this is far from enough given the large-scale high wave problems. So studies indicating the city, one of many coastal human settlements around the world will be partially submerged by 2070 if nothing is done,” said Ahmed Hassan, of Save Alexandria Initiative, a group that works to raise awareness of the effects of climate change on the city.2DDC00D000000578-3294639-Photos_of_yesterday_s_remarkable_attempts_to_surf_Atlantic_swell-a-4_1446107336034

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

1.8 million people affected as residents of Brazil’s postcard city with plenty of reasons to fear global warming even if they do not quite know it. According to Climate Central temperature rise of 3C would cause flooding of not just Rio’s famous beaches such as Copacabana and its waterfront domestic airport, but also inland areas of the Barra de Tijuca neighbourhood, where that last year’s Olympic Games were held. Barra is built around a network of heavily polluted lagoons that empty into the sea. The prospect of it being underwater alarms resident Sueli Gonçalves, 46, who runs pensioners’ health projects, with a 23-year-old son Yuri Sanchez carrying the shopping past Olympic Park. “My God. Oh Jesus,” she said, with nervous laugh  will leave there, go to United States, To Canada.” The family knew about global warming but unaware of potential scale of impact on upscale neighbourhood of smart condominiums and the shopping mall. She said, Nobody takes it seriously people do not think longterm. The storm surges recently destroyed hundreds of metre’s beautiful beachfront pavement overlooking Macumba beach, a popular surfing spot on Rio’s western fringes. Last year, heavy waves in other storm surges felled an elevated, clifftop cycle path between Leblon beach and Barra de Tijuca which had not been built to survive high seas, killing two people.Tidal-wave-Tsunami-Spain-portugal-796446

So last year, Rio’s city government and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro produced a study entitled Strategy for Adapting to Climate Change. Current challenge consist of the need to deepen knowledge and monitoring of oceanic phenomena and the evolution of the sea bed and coast,” a spokeswoman for the city’s secretariat of the environment said in an email. An “adaption plan” for climate change produced with the help of professors from federal university suggests strategies to deal with needs and vulnerabilities in areas such as transport, health and housing. But so far little has been done. Nara Pinto, 38, who lives in the sprawling Rocinha favela and sells snacks on the pavement overlooking Copacabana beach, said the loss of Rio’s famous beaches would cost a lot of jobs. “The beach is tourist point,” she said. What can be done to stop this?U414P886T1D12824F12DT20120416143632

Shanghai, China

17.5 million people affected if Shanghai is completely gone some think they will move to Tibet!” says the resident Wang Liubin, when he is shown projections for the city after 3C of global warming. When it comes to flooding coastal city is one of the world’s most vulnerable. As one of the world’s biggest ports, former fishing village is bordered by Yangtze river in the north and divided through the middle by the Huangpu river; the municipality involves several islands, two long coastlines, shipping ports, and miles of canals, rivers, and waterways. In 2012, a report from a team of UK and Dutch scientists declared Shanghai the most vulnerable major city in the world to serious flooding, based on the factors such as numbers of people living close to the coastline, time needed to recover from flooding, and measures to prevent floodwater. According to those Climate Central projections, 17.5 million people could be displaced by rising waters if the global temperatures increase by 3C. Projections show a vast majority of city could be submerged in water, including much of the downtown area, landmarks such as Lujiazui skyline and historical Bund, airports and outlying Chongming Island. Since 2012, the government has been making steady inroads to tackle the threat, including building China’s largest deepwater drainage system beneath Suzhou Creek waterway, made up of 15km of pipes to drain rainwater across a 58 sq km area. It has rolled out 40bn yuan (£5bn) River Flood Discharge project stretching for 120km between Lake Taihu and the Huangpu river to try to mitigate the risk of upstream lake flooding. Flood prevention walls are being built along waterfront in places so high the river is blocked from view and 200km more are promised across city’s outlying districts. Flood controls are put in place along famous Bund waterfront, where walkway was raised to help counter flood risk, as well as a series of water controls and dams.b4adfbf40ebb52097fa252ab0eead7c4c38bb9536dc408b439e85280e8b4d467ce67cc4064d7e525c51d2c39fd68607b40ddd90a6bb5b6bf6a234408756de1af (1)Ingeniero afirma que Harvey e Irma fueron creados por el hombreat195403

Miami, US

2.7 million people are affected but few other cities in the world have as much go lose from rising sea levels as Miami, and the alarm bells sound ever louder with each successive the king tide that overwhelms coastal defences and sends knee-deep seawater coursing through downtown streets. Locals consider this the “new normal” if the biggest city of Florida’s largest metropolitan area is to cease to exist with 3C temperature rise. At 2C, forecasts show the entire bottom third of Florida area south of the Lake Okeechobee currently home to more than 7 million people submerged, with grim projections for the rest of the state in a little more than half a century. In Miami-Dade county alone, almost $15bn of coastal property at risk of flooding in the next 15 years. A sense of urgency is evident at city hall as commissioners are asking voters to approve a Miami Forever Bond in the November ballot including $192m for upgrading pump stations, improving drainage to raising sea walls. As a really precious city many people love it willing to invest right now but it is going to take lots of more funds to protect it,” said Ken Russell, the city commission’s vice-chair. Last year, the city of Miami appointed sea-rise expert Jane Gilbert in newly created role chief resilience officer with instructions for a robust stormwater management plan to look at storm surge like Hurricane Irma in September which brought significant flooding to downtown Brickell and the neighbouring Coconut GroveProposals include elevating roads or abandoning neighbourhoods to the water to protect others. Needs universal recognition all in this together, to protect this amazing global city that it has become,” she said. Natalia Ortiz, grew up in Miami, fears the future as its very scary,” said Ortiz, who works with Cleo, a climate change advocacy group. Says son is 11 daughter nine, so they’re young but thinks about their future, will they be able to raise their children in Miami the way had the luxury of raising mine?” San-Andreas-Faultmaxresdefault

California and Canada

California is said to be awaiting ‘big one’ caused by the stress faultline increasing earthquakes and subsequent tsunamis. Since September 2017, CALIFORNIA has been rocked by 28 earthquakes in just 24 hours, sparking fears “big one” could roar any moment soon.  Big One WILL hit California soon as huge earthquake rattles Mexico scientist said. California could be in for a huge earthquake as a scientists warns potentially catastrophic San Andreas fault could be about to rupture following the deadly tremors in Mexico. In days following the powerful 7.1 quake in Mexico City which killed more than 200 people warnings are being issued to prepare survival kits of food and water and be alert daily while going about normal business. California is preparing for next big earthquake as a leading Los Angeles News reported on ‘The Big One’ 03:43 (CNN) Channel, 30th September 2017. The scene is terrifying as entire sections of a Mexico crumbled so people are being warned to get ready for any changes that will take place. San Andreas Fault in California stretching in continental fault extends roughly 1,200 kilometers through California. It forms tectonic boundary between Pacific Plate and North American Plate and motion is right-lateral strike-slip.

In 2000, living in landlocked region with no sea whatsoever I was completely surrounded by the high sea waves yet not drowned in a dream. It was before popular internet data readily available or current events recorded on tsunamis so the dream bothered me. I went to an environmental lecture the next day and the lecturer’s topic was on exactly what I saw in the dream. He showed us maps and gave notes on the rising sea levels and the earthquakes happening. I did not mention my dream to anyone just was amazed at the information given. The lecture said it was all happening so continues to happen. He gave namelist of same cities and many more in lecture notes that will be submerged if nothing is done about them advance. It sent a chill down my spine as I pondered over those lecture notes. I recalled my dream and felt spirit of heaviness crying tears over the details. I mentioned to some people affected if possible to move or do something about it to help others. On the whole not long after dream so many cities shared on TV high wave disasters we were taught about. The lecturer said he had friends who owned tourist travel businesses in some of those places so was also deeply concerned. Then other places like Louisiana, the Philippines, Japan among other started experiencing the highwaves. In addition, tidal Sun and moon magnetic waves compound a sea warmed up to produce huge waves. As Fatima predicted in 1917 tsunamis to be shared in 1962, it was sealed and was never made public so many perished. In Isaiah 52:7 God’s word says beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of one who brings good news to publish peace bringing good news of happiness and publishes salvation saying to Zion, Your God reigns. In same way God extends HIS Mercy and grace by delaying these disasters so people can hear the Gospel before it is too late. As Moses and Israel faced red sea and were miraculously saved and delivered from danger so God is able to save those crying unto Him to save humanity once again. With God all things are possible ask for God’s miraculous protection and deliverance. Jesus calmed storm at sea so call Jesus to help and be kind to yourself listening to instructions on the weather forecasts. Take action in advance to preserve lives in Jesus Name because God is able.moses-parting-red-sea-prince-of-egypt

This happenings sadly are part of end time judgements of WRATH of God and Wrath of Christ. Humanity is given a choice to change behaviour patterns since invention of electricity damage to earth increased. From planes throwing nuclear bombs to chem trails or missiles there comes a point God wants earth to be restored from destructions. People are unwilling to accept change or live simple lives that does not destroy earth with plastic wastes, damaging flora and fauna.  Toxic chemical destroy nature, organic plants and human lives now suffering from previously unheard of diseases. God decided enough is enough so sending Nibiru wormwood to cause havoc to shake earth. God waited 6,000 years patiently by hoping all mankind would come their senses by their own choice to submit to God. Although It is true billions love God and devoted to HIM transition is taking place by God wanting to restore HIS earth to original perfection again. The great Tribulation cataclysmic events are beggining to unfold and sadly it gets worse before it gets better. If you are reading this article make sure you are in God’s Kingdom by accepting His Son. This is the condition God gives for HIS salvation plan through Jesus to endure ETERNAL life. After Rapture things get even worse than happening now and one does not want to be left behind in Jesus Name. Afterwards the new earth will be brought into existence replacing the old destroyed planet. This is in the Bible orchestrated by the creator of the universe to take back HIS property. In the past God destroyed people by flood waters in Noah’s days and fire, Sodom and Gomorrah. Jesus said as it was in days of Noah, Sodom and Gomorrah so will it be until Son of man Jesus returns to take back power to rule and Reign as KING of Kings on earth in Israel.

HAVE CONFIDENCE IN GOD

291754852_640

Confidence in God is inbuilt in the brain to receive information, process, to take an action, store, apply or discard based on relevance. So scientists successfully have mapped parts of brain enhancing positive thinking to enable reinforcing good thoughts. When we think about ourselves positively, we are stimulating parts of our brains involved in reward, motivation, pleasure, says Dr Stacie Grossman Bloom. According to Dr Stacie Grossman Bloom a neuroscientist who has three daughters who also has a successful career at the NYU Langone Medical Center in New York. She has examined the role neuroscience plays in boosting confidence. This is particularly useful to many people who need exactly that, she writes as part of this year’s 100 Women Challenge. As primary carers or nurtures the mother’s confidence rubs on a child in the formative years of growing up. A happy mother is a happy child and happy family so is important to ensure the confidence of the mother is especially enhanced and supported. It takes a whole village to raise a child so the woman’s confidence is essential for the happiness of the spouse and vice versa. Confidence radiates in a person so is felt by those around that person so necessary to promote positive thinking. The world is so full of negative news it may seem impossible to think or to feel positive at any given moment. However confidence in God is the anchor of hope and joy in spite of adversity.images

confidence-in-the-lord2Confidence in God is unshaken by those circumstances of life having assurance God is still on the throne. Confidence is something many people want but do not know how to get. We need to embrace our abilities, our values and have a self-esteem to be successful. Without it, we are less likely to seek promotion, speak up in meetings and rise into leadership positions. This ultimately has enormous impact as various studies after studies shows having confident people at work in position of power correlates with the profitability collaborative environment and improved problem solving. So with some practice, we can use neuroscience to help to be more confident. The most influential or the inspirational names around the world every year are full of confidence. In 2017, challenging people to tackle the 4 biggest problems facing people today like glass ceiling, female illiteracy, harassment in public spaces and sexism in sport. With the help of all hopefully can be coming up with many real-life solutions and so we want you to get involved with your ideas. 8aa3408d68e32286c91a4aeea3380fd6 CONFIDENCE-IN-GOD+copy

Thinking positively we know enhances self-confidence like all other personality traits reside within our brains. Alhough a large part of architecture of the brain is predetermined yet experiences and the choices we make continue to shape us. Over the course of life we acquire new knowledge, abilities by modulating the intricate and malleable connections between the cells and circuits in brains. We can utilise neuroscience to silence our negative inner voices and boost our confidence. These strategies work by engaging “value areas” of the brain. When we think about ourselves more positively, we are able to stimulate the parts of our brains that are involved in reward, motivation, and pleasure. One output of this pattern of neurological activation is we literally feel good when confident, we hold our heads high.Dr. Bloom with her three daughtersDr. Bloom with her three daughters

A healthy positive feeling is contagious so promotes those around us to be more engaged with us, whether its colleagues, our friends, or troops. The reinforcing reactions we see and feel in response to our confidence feedbacks to our brains to encourage more activity. So the first step is to push back against obstacles we know stand in our way being mindful of situations and deciding to be confident. Making complex decision is a multi-step process that taps into our emotions and engages many other parts of the brain.

Train your brain

brainWhen we have made the decision to be confident, we have to start training our brains. The Above brain scan details by DR. GYORGY BUZSAKI, NEUROSCIENCE INSTITUTE, shows the orange structure here as one of billions of neurons that is often stretching out to make connection (synapses) you see in yellow (more than 75,000). Those connections are what we are tweaking when we learn to choose confidence Just like mastering any other talent, gaining self-assurance requires repetition and time. Every time we do or learn something new, our brains adjust to store our new skill or bit of knowledge. This happens because parts of our brains are plastic and synapses that connect our brain cells, called the neurons, to each other can be modified, strengthened, and even newly created to store what we have acquired in this case confidence boost communication. From a scientific perspective people can blame both nature nurture for stacking the odds against them when it comes to valuing themselves. A biological reality is that women secrete different levels of hormones than men so react differently to the same world around us.brainThis brain scan shows “value areas” of the brain. DR PAUL GLIMCHER AND IFAT LEVY’s image caption reveal the areas of the brain in these images that are coloured to show they are activated “value areas” of the brain. Women tend to have a desire to please others, to seek acceptance, inclusion and avoid conflict. The way women respond to a stressful situations is different to men. While the men tend to take more risk when under pressure, the women look for the surer solutions and reach out to connect with others to manage stress. These genetic differences are compounded by the fact that we are socialized differently from the moment we are born and a pink hat is placed upon our heads.

Boys and girls

As we grow up, young women are not necessarily taught to exhibit any self-confidence, and if we do, we are often criticized for being “snobby” or “stuck-up” or “bitchy” words seldom associated with men. We hear damaging terms like “women’s intuition” suggesting that we aren’t making strategic analyses, but basing our decisions on some ethereal gut feeling but study after study shows women and men equally data driven. And the relentless emphasis placed on how we look erodes our self-image and for most of us, gets worse over time. As a mother of 3 young girls, this resonates every time daughters receive another impossibly-proportioned doll designed for dress up, caregiving, or primping.

Some women in a perceived masculine job are treated with ridicule finding it hard to convince men they are as good and competent as required to do the job even with their identical qualifications trained by exact same Institute. These bias comes in underhand tactics, jokes derogatory of performance and hurtful comments that can affect confidence. It is sometimes deliberately done hoping it drives away unwanted females from an all male exclusive zone. These can be do traumatic for women that it is very necessary to educate men on how to act, behave or talk to women. Especially the women of diversity background raised in serious environments teach respect of the emotional feeling others. Healthy interactions are required in a civilised  society that prides itself on equal rights or equal opportunities. Women are still facing hitting a glass ceiling if they also desire promotion by climbing a broken ladder. It is well-documented we way we raise girls and women has a lasting impact on way they view themselves and their abilities. Negative messages will engender self-doubt and lead us to underestimate ourselves. The result is not only a nearly universal feeling of imposter syndrome but fear of making mistakes, suspicion of underperforming unattainable quest for perfection. This is what is shutting down when making a decision to be more confident.confidence-blog-Jan1-1

Practice, practice, practice

It doesn’t matter what level of self-assurance you start at, the more time and effort you dedicate to practicing being more confident, the faster your brain will change and the faster you’ll master it. So it is important to remove ourselves from situations and people who make you feel bad because confidence largely comes from being in supportive environment. Environment comprises people around us and what we choose to focus our attention on. It is beneficial to concentrate on things that are empowering and to steer clear of exposure to images and contents that make us feel bad about ourselves. The way we choose to hold and to conduct ourselves is another factor. The mental simulations help envisioning ourselves finishing a race, speaking in public to a standing ovation, mastering job, getting a degree can all help build ourselves up. Just as a coach gives encouraging pep talk to the team before taking the field, we can give ourselves a confidence lift. Notably, these practices have an impact on our overall health and wellbeing, serving as buffer to stress, depression, and fostering good mental and physical health. When we choose confidence, we are rewiring our brains and we are able to change ourselves and our world, for the better. So how would you feel if you can become more confident, happier go influence people in a more confident manner. With God all things are possible.

GOD’S LAMB BOOK OF LIFE

revelation-20Annual Remembrance Day celebrations triggers memories of passed loved ones once again. The timing of events of their pictures and composed messages brings floods of tears by reliving the trauma of loss and grief. The pain of loss is worse especially if person’s death, unexpected, suddenly taken, cutting short all grand plans of their future. The pain is intense unavoidable and unshakable with loss deeply felt almost to point of doubting if one’s own life is worth living without a loved one. Whether a loved one was old or a young person gone suddenly it is a shock to the system. The hurt and pain, tears, numbness, inability to function or think clearly, loss of appetite, sleepless nights or fears, affects lives of the living left behind. Some seem to handle their pain better than others although there is no perfect formula for grieving. So people get on with their lives with such gaping hole of sadness of the missing person in their lives. Others completely lose the plot drowning sorrow with any thing that masks the pain. Some fall into deep depression, mental health issues or even become completely mad from trauma they never recover from. It is written in the Bible to mourn with hope knowing there is eternal reunion with a loved one once again. So there, will be no more tears, crying, grief, sorrow or pain but all will live together forever. Jesus wept over the death of Lazarus his friend but resurrected him from death.jesuswepttop

slide_55thelordisnear.jpgIMG-20171115-WA0000This message of hope gives assurance life on earth is a temporary journey so death is not the end of life. The real life in heaven comes with permanent joy, love happiness and joy forever. Believe in God and Jesus Christ and let not your hearts be troubled. In heaven in Father God’s House are many mansion rooms. If it was not so Jesus would have told you so He goes to prepare a place for you so where God and Jesus live you will live also. Though feeling sad people who mourn or grieve in Christ know they will meet their loved ones again in the future. Loved ones who passed are no more in pain in happier place called heaven. Heaven gains souls returned to God whose names are written in the Book of Life remembered by God. They are happy so do not want those they left behind to be traumatized because they left earth and do not want to see them sad. God’s soul angels harvest and gather into heaven those who arrive each day. It is heart-warming and amazing Godly hope of assurance tells us one day of joy in heaven is better than a thousand years on earth. Thank God for Jesus who conquered death to give us eternal life forever. Those who accept and love God in Christ are in book of Remembrance of God. When people on earth cry, God collects tears in bottle and keeps on HIS altar in heaven. Bible says in Psalms 56:8 God takes account of sorrow and puts tears in HIS bottle on HIS altar in heaven and in HIS BOOKS of Life and Remembrance. Jeremiah 14:17 assures us God CRIES over tragic loss and people who rebel against God. Revelation 7:17 says, Lamb of God Jesus is at the center of God’s Throne as Shepherd to guide all to springs of water of life and God will wipe every tear from their eyes. The sheep of Jesus who hear His voice, follow and live in Christ return to God in heaven.great-council-in-heaven4-1IMG_20171115_080314

As those who fear the LORD God speak to one another the LORD gives attention to them in book of remembrance written before Him, for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name. ‘They will be Mine,’ says the LORD of hosts, ‘on the day that I prepare My own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him. God will distinguish between righteous and wicked, between one who serves God and the ones who does not serve Him.’” The book Malachi 3 is detailed account from the LORD God to people about issue of obedience. HIS charges against them are: offering defective sacrifices in 1:8, teaching error in 2:8, unfaithful to wives 2:13–14, complain it is futile to serve the LORD God and 3 divorce their wives on flimsy excuses. God pronounces strict judgments upon those guilty of offenses in Malachi 2:2. God makes it clear HE hears and knows intentions of heart’s desires so honours those who Honour HIM. HE knows all loyal ones who refuse to murmur against God as Numbers 14:27, 36 says or Deuteronomy 1:27 and Psalm 106:25. The Bible says the dead in Christ will be raised first during rapture to go with living into heaven to be in God’s Presence.revelations-king-jesusdanny-hahlbohm-the-invitation_a-l-925627-02002505IMG_20171113_180730

Scripture refers to God’s “BOOKS” in Exodus 32:23, Psalm 56:8, Daniel 7:10 12:1, Revelations 13:8, 2015. God keeps a written record in order to keep track of human deeds. God uses book of remembrance representing list of deeds of people for rewards. The kings of Persia kept book records of those who render services to the king so servants might be rewarded. The book of Esther 6:1-3 in the Bible has important notes so rewards given, even if delayed is seen as worthy deed for the king to reward. In Malachi 3:17 the LORD says, on that day faithful service is rewarded after taking notice. There is coming a day when HE will act to reward obedient but evildoers who think the LORD did not see or care as Malachi 3:14:15, Psalm 94:7, Ezekiel 8:12 says are punished. Scripture is clear loyalty to God is noticed and rewarded. Jesus spoke of this many times in Matthew 10:42, Mark 9:41, Luke 6:23, Revelation 22:12. Life is like storing treasure in heaven, making deposits into bank account as Matthew 6:20 says. What is done on earth is also forever recorded in heaven as shown in 2:Corinthians 5:10. Remembrance book is used by God to encourage His faithful ones their love and service for Him is appreciated and noticed. His promise is that during judgment those love Him He knows His own and will preserve them. The righteous man Noah was preserved by God for Honouring Him in Genesis 6:9. Jesus encourages His followers to rejoice because their names are written in heaven in Luke 10:20. Jesus knows all those faithful to Him despite all earthly troubles, heartaches, death says Bible in Matthew 24:9, Acts 9:6, 12:2. Knowing names are written in God’s BOOK helps disciples persevere to the end as shown in Matthew 10:22, Mark 13:13. Galatians 6:9 continues theme of future reward: “Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Those who continue to honour the Lord when some fall away can rest assured in the confidence their names are written in God’s book of remembrance in heaven. Revelations 8:3 says another angel, who had golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, along with the prayers of all the saints, on the golden altar before God’s THRONE. 4 So the smoke of the incense and prayers rose before God from the hand of the angel. Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it to the earth; and there were rolls of thunder, and rumblings, and flashes of lightning, and an earthquake.8709652ccf870f6b243c6009e3cfdc35bb1f1d6f5ff36ce96e0213155604432321TRIBUTE1-master768226456db3907f6789d896eab08dcc16f--tears-of-sadness-angles2044867.jpgIRAQiraq-war-photos-michael-kamber.sw_.4.photojournalists-on-war-ss01

In a recent revelation, God showed me Jesus preparing bodies of the saints to be awakened. The bodies are carefully wrapped in white garments and laid side by  side. Then the Lord said do not be afraid of these dead bodies. As we walked past them Jesus said “I will marry you” meaning invitation to the marriage supper of the Lamb as chosen bride among many to bridegroom Jesus. Suddenly, Jesus enters the graves again, some in flooded waters others in sealed tombs and continues his preparation of bodies. I walked towards Jesus in the grave and two angels pointed me out and said not that way go here on this path. The next day the revelations continued in church where a woman showed me pictures on the wall. She said these are the faces of those bodies you were shown and this group is from 1911-1921. She handed me a book of life and said their names are written in this book then revelation ended. I am sharing this message on the Lamb’s books of life and remembrance books of life recording accounts of life of all people who lived and in future. It also records unbelievers and atheists so to recall on judgements day by God. And those who Honour God though grieving are guaranteed ETERNAL life FOREVER. This is the reason why it is so important to understand living according to God ‘s plans and purposes. It is appointed unto man once to die but after death there is judgement of God in heaven. Do not let life’s sorrow overwhelm you to miss Lord Jesus Christ’s love for you. So no matter how much you love your loved ones or they love you God’s Love is the greatest LOVE for both you and your family. Remember God is watching and noting all actions on earth to reward as recorded your loved ones and your life in God’s Remembrance Books for eternity. Though time to weep and weeping may endure for a season joy comes in the morning to be eternally happy as citizens of heaven in Jesus Name where there is eternal joy. One final thing to note is there in only one marriage of the Lamb of God in heaven to His bridegroom His Church of God in Christ Jesus. God’s love in heaven is so perfect surpassing human love for one another so human marriages does not exist in heaven as no longer needed in heaven. But all will recognise loved ones and family members and friends in happy reunion.

 

THE VISION OF DEAD GOATS

goats-deadI had a vision of dead goats in a dream while owner of dead herds stood in the middle crying. We visited owner with soul food, cooked meals to fellowship but instead found him too grieving to enjoy meal then I woke up. I checked the Bible for prophecies on goats and I looked at the closest images on google that seeems close enough to recount and share my dream. This process brought me unexpectedly to goats being culled in Galapagos as I was about to write this blog. In the Bible Judas knew what he was doing when he double-crossed his friend Jesus. “What will you give me if I betray him to you?” he asked conspiring priests in the famous Bible story. The story of Judas Goat is more tragic. She had no idea she was leading her friends to their deaths. Her captors sterilized her first, coated her with hormones so she reeked of fertility. They collared her with a radio-tracking device and let her loose. Nearby male goats smelled and sought her out. As soon as they found her, people swooped in and shot them. The hunters saved Judas, so they could repeat the set-up again and again.Livestock-Perish-Due-To-Floods-in-Dukana-696x392

It was all part of a six-year, $6 million project in which conservationists killed nearly 80,000 feral goats on Santiago Island in the Galápagos. Similar goat genocides had happened on 128 other islands, including nearby Pinta, but never on any as large as Santiago, which spans 144,470 acres. The goats, introduced by sailers hundreds of years earlier, were decimating all flavours of vegetation there, putting ground birds, giant tortoises and species in danger. So officials conservationist in Galápagos National Park and the Charles Darwin Foundation decided the goats had to go. The logistical details are fascinating. The first phase, from December 2001 to January 2004, was ground hunting. Researchers recruited locals, many of whom had never hunted before, and taught them how to use hunting dogs, rifles, radios, telemetry and GPS. Then they started the cold and systematic business of killing let out a little gasp when reading a description of one of the techniques from a research paper:14bg_GBTVSHI-W0+15GB_NK_P1.jpg

During the first 2 years of the campaign, we corralled goats in the highlands where they concentrated during dry months. We constructed temporary corrals with winged extensions of netting (10 x 10-cm mesh) strung between trees or posts at an average of 1.8 m high, with a skirt hanging on the ground weighted down with rocks. We used winged extensions, up to 6.5 km long, to funnel animals into corrals. Goats were mustered into corrals by hunters on foot or horseback, along with the aid of air horns and rifle shots. We euthanized corralled goats in accordance with American Association of Zoo Veterinarians guidelines.

Looked up those wildlife management of goats, they recommend an overdose of succinylcholine followed by a stun-gun or shotgun to the head. The ground-hunting phase of project killed 53,782 goats. The second phase was 3 months of aerial attacks, by specialized hunters from New Zealand using semiautomatic rifles. This video tells you all you need to know about Phase 2:

Ground and aerial hunting wiped out 98.5 percent of the goat population on Santiago. But the thing about eradication is, you can’t just do a pretty good job. If one pregnant goat manages to escape, all of your progress could be reversed. As the researchers explain in that paper: “For large-scale eradication to succeed and maximize conservation return on investment, an eradication ethic is essential. Every animal, from the first to the last, must be treated as last animal on the island. The campaign embraces a zero-escape policy.” That’s why the Judas Goat is so important: she finishes the job. There were 213 Judas Goats involved in Santiago job: males, females and hormone-doused females. The latter, nicknamed Mata Haris, were most effective. Between June 2004 and November 2005, Judas Goats entrapped 1,174 others, completing eradication. A year later, the researchers came back and covered the entire island again with hunters and dogs. The only goats left were Judas Goats. At the time, it was the largest most successful mammal eradication project ever done. Previous efforts had taken two or three decades to kill far fewer animals, partly because they only used a few dozen Judas Goats. After the win on Santiago, authorities launched another eradication campaign on the much larger island of Isabela. The top half of the island, which is not inhabited by humans, is clear of goats. DC5W-rgW0AAQfGPOn both islands, after goats left vegetation came back with a vengeance, and so did some endemic species. In Santiago, population of Galápagos rail, a brown ground bird, went up more than 10 times. Rationally, I should have no trouble with the mass killings. as not a vegetarian and not particularly fond of goats. The researchers seem to follow ethical standards, and they’re doing it all in the name of biodiversity. Yet, emotionally, hearing about killing sprees makes it queasy not the only one. Back to States a traveler wrote in email:

I really enjoyed trip, but the one big downer for me was extermination of the goats and the donkeys and their very anti-Darwin approach…

Everything has a right to live. The goats could have been herded and shipped to Australia.  Not as cheap or as macho as slaughtering them from helicopters, but then no-kill shelters cost more to run than kill shelters. As you can guess I did not contribute to the continued extermination of non-endemic species in the Galapagos.

Wondering if eradication campaigns, for good done has a serious downside. Are they, anti-Darwinian in a way that matters, scientifically is the negative emotional reaction causing the lots of tourists to hold on to money otherwise donated to conservation organizations? How about encouraging people, export of goats to neighbouring countries or fences to contain them for the herders to sell globally. Australians encourage people to eat kangaroo meat so could a similar solution not be found there? In an age of famine and drought it seems meat destroyed could be eaten by those who eat meat. Why not processed meat to sell frozen or as used in pet foods?Goats-on-IsabelaProjectIsabela.GNPS_

The goat story has similarities in Bible from Matthew 25:31–46: “But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. Before him all the nations will be gathered, and he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. metaphorically speaking God uses imagery to give Gospel truth to warn people to learn the Bible message. Is it possible God is saying, although His perfect soul food to feed mankind has already been provided in Jesus yet some ‘goats’ may be too late culled by enemy before rescue? The Bible’s use of goats and sheep as metaphors for Christians is symbolic of the church compared with the sheep. Christ is the Good Shepherd and His sheep stated in John 10:11, 14. Traits of sheep in Psalm 23 and John 10 gives a picture of eternal life but goats condemnation. The goats are used by God to symbolize evil in numerous instances in the Bible. In  Zechariah 10:3 God says says HE will punish the goats. In Matthew 25:31-46 Christ’s Parable of sheep and the goats tells of His return to judge the nations. Verse 33 says, Christ will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.” The sheep are given eternal life, but the goats are cast into the lake of fire. This Scripture shows it is better to be a sheep and not those goats. God uses goats in negative light but as admirable, intelligent, sensitive, playful animals they quickly respond to individual attention affection. But goats are very capricious, impulsive, unpredictable, devious and contrary. When grazing, is not unusual to see their heads through a fence, straining to reach the grass that is always greener on other side. They climb trees to graze, stand on their hind legs, stretching for tender leaves out of reach. Goats are never content with what they have. They are experts in opening gates and squeezing through small gaps because they hate to be confined. Fences that will handle sheep, cattle, and horses will not hold goats so work tirelessly to spring themselves from situations they deem inhibiting.Goats_Alcedo_Josh

Consequently, goats are not very good followers. “Gregarious behavior” is the term referring to flock or herd instincts found in sheep, cattle or horses. Again, this quality is rather weak in goats; they prefer leading or going off on their own. Meat packers use this instinct in sheep and goats to their advantage. They train an old goat called “Judas,” to lead sheep to pen to slaughter. A well-trained Judas will lead group after group of sheep to slaughter all day long. Goats  possess a stubborn streak. A friend once tried to move a goat in a certain direction. Goats resist direction of shepherd so go off in own direction the goat wanted to go in. Goats are intelligent, playful, impulsive, unpredictable, and devious. The goat’s characteristics is clear, though not evil, is used as a scape goat. Some of their traits are similar to the spiritually found in some Christians as unpredictable, not listening to instructions or directions of God thinking above all. A goat is one who independently does own thing, so wants to take over and ruin it all. So has trouble functioning in a group, and does not want to be led under control of their leaders. In chapter 3:13 James’ advice to leader is follow higher standard of God:

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct his works are done in the meekness of wisdom of God.

In Halley’s Bible Handbook, p. 660, the commentator writes these verses:

This passage says teachers, must aim to teach doctrine of God, have personal affection for Christ, and produce ETERNAL good fruits.

sheep-and-goatsGoats in a congregation tend to divide it, leading the sheep astray. Many goat-like characteristics, some good, some bad so as understand in the biblical metaphor about goats, and what Christ says their ultimate end will be, we can look on this side of ourselves in a more urgent light. A Christian cannot stand still but not all movement is proper growth, Christian’s life must move in the right direction on path of Kingdom of God. Not want to be sidetracked by following own choosing on a whim out of stubbornness or need for independence. A sheep follows the Shepherd, peacefully moving forward with the flock, content to be led because faith in God. A sheep responds to their Shepherd’s voice and goes as directed. A goat follows own lead creating disunity when in contact with others in the flock. Because of an independent nature often finds in contention with the Shepherd for leadership of the flock, leading some astray. A goat eats things sheep would avoid because they have no value and cause sickness. These serious spiritual characteristics of sheep or a goat and goats leave room for food for thought. Some sheep and goats perish in storms seen on November 15, 2013, two days after a ferocious storm and after days of heavy floods in Somalia’s northeastern Puntland. And in drought striken zones suddenly die through starvation, lack of water or thunder strikes. The unforseen circumstances are challenging affecting both animals and humans especially the cost of causes beyond human control. In end times, prophecies predict uncertain weather patterns affecting nature as part of the bigger picture of changes happening globally. Despite misfortunes booming goat sales is thriving business with Nigeria flying 300,000 goats each week to Saudi Arabia so why not sell the goats to invest in restoring the land.

JESUS’ REDEMPTION STORY

64c4b35ad8e698245862bbd9ce869f9a

The wise men found guidance in the Star of Bethlehem, for they saw His star in the east, and came to worship Him. Let us establish the fact of a star-picture in the heavens, which was known to the writers of the Old Testament. “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows HIS handywork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language their voice is not heard. Their line is gone through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them He set a tabernacle for the sun” (PSALM 19:1-4).IMG_20171109_194224Further in this Psalm one sees the circuit through which the sun passes to clarify the heavenly lights. The Bible declares, “HE tells the number of stars, HE calls them all by their names says Psalm 147:4. In Job 38 we read of the Pleiades better known as the ‘Seven Sisters’; Orion, ‘The Pot’ Arcturus ‘The Bear’ and Mazzaroth old Hebrew word translates as ‘Twelve Signs.’ The Greeks translate these twelve signs into the word ‘Zodiakos’, meaning ‘circle’, and from then the word ‘Zodiac.’ The centre of the heaven is divided into 12 sections, and each year the sun passes through these twelve sections or ‘signs’. This path through the stars in these signs is known as ecliptic path. It is believed the major stars in twelve signs depict God’s message of redemption to mankind so each sign having a Hebrew star name inspiring the picture story drawn on the heavens.

Wonderful Message

Before further explaining these signs and subsidiary stars, with their wonderful message, it is important to note the profound difference between astronomy and astrology. The term ‘astro’ means ‘star’ in both words. The term ‘nomos’ means ‘law, arrangement or plan’, whereas word ‘logos’ means a ‘word’ or ‘doctrine.’ It is from the study of astrology that the reading of the horoscope has developed. This word comes from the Greek hora meaning ‘know’ and skopein, to ‘view’. It applies to observation of the hour of birth and the practice is to endeavour to tell a man’s fortune by the position of stars at the time of his birth. The Bible presents the wonders of the heavens as proof of a Creator and the details of the zodiac as a series of pictures giving details of the plan of the ages. The horoscope is a pseudo and vain attempt to transfer this story into individual prophecies, lucky days and personal direction. God has challenged the claims of the astrologers on numerous occasions. His warning to Israel in ISAIAH 47 speaks for itself:882002eecca1612fe9f2534158cd653d--names-of-jesus-jesus-is

“Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up and save you from these things that shall come upon thee. Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them…”(Isaiah 47:12-14). The practice of astrology and reading of horoscopes is unreal and useless.stars4

The Twelve Signs

The twelve signs are fairly well-known. They commence with Virgo, the Virgin, and conclude with Leo, the Lion; these two signs being associated directly with the birth and subsequent return of our Lord Jesus Christ. In Egyptian archives the sphinx is shown inserted as an asterisk between these two signs, thus dividing the circle and solving its own riddle of the ‘woman and lion.’ From here on each sign depicts some aspect of the Bible narrative: Virgo (the woman) with the branch lies amid 140 stars, with the sun taking 43 days to pass through this constellation. The brightest star in this sign is Tsemech (Hebrew) or Al Zimach (Arabic) means ‘branch’ or a woman and the branch.orion-star-guide

Isaiah 7:14 states, “Behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a Son…” There are three smaller constellations in each sign, also depicting similar aspects of the Bible story. Next is Libra, which in Hebrew is Mozanaim, meaning ‘the Scales’. Note that our own Southern Cross is in this constellation. Then comes Scorpio, which in Hebrew is Akrab, meaning ‘Scorpion’ or ‘stinging conflict one.’ Arabic word translates as ‘wounding him who comes.’ The Bible tells us that the “seed of the woman” would bruise the serpent’s head. The sign Sagittarius, the Archer, depicts a disciple of conquering Lord given us in REVELATION 6. The dragon, Draco, is shown cast down in constellation. Next is Capricornus, the Sin Goat. Our Lord was scapegoat and we are His fish, a wonderful symbol of the redemption plan as written in heavens. Aquarius, the Water Bearer, depicts the pouring on of water (See JOHN 7). One Hebrew star in this constellation, Deli, means ‘water container’, and other star, Saad, means the ‘one who goes and returns.’1369Belt

Pisces is known as Pisces Australis, the ‘southern fish.’ Hebrew word means ‘the fishes’, and speaks no doubt of the great ingathering of revival, restoration as promised. Innumerable scriptures speak of all these terms. Andromeda, the ‘chained woman’, is also shown in this constellation, symbolising Israel as the woman still chained in unbelief. Aries, ‘the Ram or Lamb’, which in Hebrew is Teleh, is an obvious picture of the many times our Lord is presented both in the Old and New Testaments. Cassiopiea, ‘the enthroned woman’ is in this constellation and speaks of the restored and crowned Is-ra-el people of God. The sign for Taurus signifies ‘the Bull’. The brightest star is Al Debaran, meaning ‘leader’ or ‘governor. Prophesy of Jesus in Isaiah 9 says the government shall be upon His shoulders, Isaiah 9:6.January-Orion-eastern-sky-m

In this same constellation we have a cluster of stars called Pleiades, ‘the congregation of the judge or ruler’, with its brightest star Al Cyone, meaning ‘the centre’. Many astronomers believe this star to be the centre of whole universe. In this constellation is Orion, means ‘the coming prince.’ In Hebrew Oarian mean ‘light’and Hagat ‘the triumphant one.’ Amos refers to Orion, which in Hebrew is Chesil, meaning ‘the strong one hero giant’ In the right shoulder of Orion we find Betelgeuz ‘the coming branch and his left foot Rigol the foot that crushes. A star in his left shoulder, Bellatrix, means ‘quietly coming’, and in the belt of Orion the star Al Niyak, means ‘the wounded one.’ Next is Gemini Twins. The Hebrew word is ‘Thaumin’ meaning ‘unites.’ Jesus the man, Christ the God in unity of man and God has provided the recommendation for sons of God. We find the star Apollo, meaning ‘ruler’ or ‘judge.’ Cancer, derives from the Arabic words ‘al sartan’ and means ‘one who holds or binds together.’ One large star in the sign of Cancer is Acubene, which means in Hebrew ‘the shelter’ or ‘hiding place’. Also in this constellation is Ursa Major, the ‘great bear’ recorded in JOB 9 and 38. Many other stars with Hebrew names are associated with this sign, and depict the lamb and the gathering of the sheep with the Lord. Finally we have Leo, the Lion. The end of the Zodiac circle. The riddle of the sphinx is solved with the head of the woman Virgo and the body of the lion Leo, which in Hebrew is Arieh. There are six Hebrew words for lion. This one means ‘the lion herds its prey.’ Star of first magnitude in constellation is Denebola, meaning ‘the Lord who cometh.’ “Weep not: for behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open book in REVELATION 5:5a4-flyer-01

Our future is written in God’s Word and declared in the heavens. Satan, as the master of illusion or delusion, still captivates the gullible. The present increase in the “occult,” the ouija board, seances, and horoscopes, all side-track the unsuspecting and superstitious, and endeavour to replace the ideology of God with that of man. As an alternative to the wonderful “outpouring of the Holy Spirit” as shown in the Word of God confirmed in the Zodiac, millions have now turned to the vanity of their own devices. Don’t read your horoscope read the Bible. At Christmas look for your Guiding Star to appear in your life. The Lord Jesus Christ our personal Star of Bethlehem, and as you place that star on top of tree remember true meaning, not its pagan godless alternative, but its message of hope and redemption. “We have a more sure word of prophecy, whereunto ye do well that ye take heed as unto a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawn and Day Star arise in your hearts”(2 PETER 1:19).

SLEEP SLEEP SLEEP SLEEP

IMG_20171102_114202 A recent study says sleep deprivation  actually causes brain cells to eat parts of brain’s synapses. The study found astrocytes went into overdrive in sleep-deprived mode more brain connections were broken down in chronically sleep-deprived people according to the Sleep Council. On average Britons gets a six-and-a-half hours sleep per night but for most people is not enough. Lots of these studies show that cutting back on sleep, deliberately or otherwise has serious effects on the body. Continuous nights of bad sleep is really messing blood sugar control and causing overeating. It even messes with DNA. A few years ago, Dr Simon Archer help ran experiment and found getting an hour’s less sleep a night affected activities of a wide range of volunteers’ genes in about 500 in all, including the effects associated with the inflammation and diabetes. And a good nights sleep uplifts body, mind, thought processes and moods or outlook on life.A woman after a good night's sleep

As much as wholistic benefits is gained by sound sleep on the other hand other studies shows negative effects on bodies of sleep deprivation. The clear effects of lack of sleep on mental health is shown by Trust Me I am a Doctor team with the sleep scientists at Oxford University by their experiments. They recruited some volunteers who normally sleep soundly fitted them with devices to accurately monitor their sleep. The first 3 nights of study they got a full, undisturbed eight hours. The next 3 nights, had restricted sleep to just four hours. Each day the volunteers filled in the psychological questionnaire designed to reveal any changes in their mood or emotions. So they kept video diaries of experiences of what happened. Sarah Reeve, a doctoral student who ran the experiment was so surprised by how quickly their mood changed. There was increase in anxiety, depression and stress, also increases in paranoia and feelings of mistrust about other people” she said. “Given that this happened only after 3 nights of a sleep deprivation that is alarming. Volunteers found experience unpleasant but one of them Josh claimed to be unaffected. Yet the computer data evidence showed the effects to be different. Although a week may not have as much toll as he thought it would on him, he said. “felt perfectly fine, not happy, sad, stressed, anything.” But tests did on him showed something very different. His positive emotions fell sharply after 2 nights of disturbed sleep, while negative emotions began to rise. Even though he felt OK there were signs he was mentally, beginning to suffer.sleep-deprived-woman-brain

What happens in body without enough sleep?

Poor sleep is linked to a whole range of disorders. A review of 153 studies with total of more than 5 million participants found that the short sleep significantly associated with diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease and obesity.

how lack of sleep can affect your body: links with diabetes, heart disease, dementia, low mood and cognitive functioning, vaccinations less effective, lower immune response linked to coughs and colds, greater risk of obesity

Studies have shown that depriving people of enough sleep for only a few nights in a row can be enough to put healthy adults into a pre-diabetic state. Moderate levels of sleep deprivation damaged bodies’ ability to control blood glucose levels. And the vaccines are less effective if sleep deprived because sleep deprivation suppresses immune system making people more prone to infection. One study found participants who had fewer than seven hours of sleep were almost 3 times more likely to develop a cold than those who slept for 7 hours or more. People who do not sleep enough produce too much hormone ghrelin, associated with feeling hungry, and not enough of hormone leptin, associated with feeling full, which may contribute to their risk of obesity. There are also links to brain function and even in the long term to dementia. Prof. O’Mara explains that toxic debris builds up in brain during the course of the day and waste is drained from the body during sleep. If not sleeping enough ends up in a mildly concussed state, he says. The impact of sleeping too much though less understood is linked to poorer health including high risk of cognitive decline in older people. Different types of sleep to repair body and brain. After falling asleep body goes through the cycles of “sleep stages” lasting between 60 and 100 minutes. Each stage plays different role in the many processes that happen in our body during sleep.

sleep cycle through the night from awake to drowsy to light sleep, deep sleep, REM sleep and back

The first stage in each cycle is a drowsy, relaxed state between being awake and sleeping breathing slows, muscles relax, the heart rate drops. The second stage is a slightly deeper sleep may feel awake and this means on many nights, may be asleep and not know it. Stage three is deep sleep. It is very hard to wake up during this period because it is when there is the lowest amount of activity in body. Stages two and three together are known as slow wave sleep which is usually dreamless. After deep sleep we go back to stage two for a few minutes, and then enter dream sleep, also called REM (rapid eye movement). As name suggests is when dreaming happens. In a full sleep cycle a person goes through all the stages of sleep from one to three, then back down to two briefly, before entering REM sleep. Later cycles have longer periods of REM, so cutting sleep short has a disproportionately large effect on REM.

‘Stuck’ In Negative Thoughts

The outcome of this small test reflects results of other much bigger tests done by other university researchers all over the world of sleep deprivation affecting  mental health. The research recruited more than 3,700 university students across the UK who reported problems sleeping and randomized them into two groups. One group received 6 sessions of online CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) for improving their sleep; the other group got standard advice. Ten weeks into the study, the students who received CBT reported a halving in rates of insomnia, accompanied by noticing the significant improvements in scores for depression, anxiety, big reductions in paranoia and hallucinations. This is the largest random controlled trial of psychological treatment for mental health in UK. And it strongly suggests that insomnia really causes mental health problems rather than simply being consequence of them. Daniel Freeman, the professor of the clinical psychology, Oxford University led study and thinks one of the reasons why sleep deprivation is bad for brain is because it encourages the repetitive negative thinking seen. And negative thoughts happen if sleep-deprived and gets stuck in them,” he said. He does not think a few nights of bad sleep means you becoming mentally ill but think it increases the risk.a1bb7cc18e609b3436edc80883d82dcd--interesting-health-facts-interesting-information

One in three people have difficulty in sleeping about 5% to 10% of the general population has insomnia but so many people get on with their lives and they cope with it. But it does raise the risk of a whole range of other mental health difficulties.” The positive side of this research is it implies helping people get a good night’s sleep goes a long way to helping improve a sense of well-being. And Norbert Schwarz, the professor of psychology at University of Southern California, has even put a figure on it. He claims: “Making $60,000 (£48,400) more in annual income has less of an effect on your daily happiness than getting one extra hour of sleep a night.” So, sleep well. In children, their sleep deprivation seems to have a slightly different effects on kids vs. adults. One recent study found the brain changes so half-night of sleep deprivation affects the back regions of the brain instead of the front regions as it does in adults.howthebrainrbrainscan

Effects of Sleep Deprivation on Brain

Lots of studies reveal damaging effects of sleep deprivation on the brain. Scans from various research shows difference in brain between sound sleep and those of deprived sleep. Biological and social influences converged to create a perfect storm keeps some awake at night. In the pre-industrial times, people woke up at first light and naturally wind down at sunset. Little work could be done in the dark by candlelight but the invention of artificial light altered sleep experiences by turning night to daylight. Lightbulbs, television screens, smartphones confuse bodies’ internal clocks to interrupt the natural sleep cycle. Modern society has been conditioned to think sleeplessness is a badge of honour and productivity. Some people naturally adapted to these changes but for others these changes are against nature so has exacerbated an underlying biological deficiency and created a cycle of sleeplessness.

Neuron Synapse

Fig 2. Neurotransmitter GABA flowing between neurons. 2 natural compounds play an essential role in regulating sleep cycle: GABA and melatonin. As the day wears on absence of light and the body’s internal clock trigger the production of melatonin works with neurotransmitter GABA to help wind down mind and to prepare body for sleep. When the sleep cycle is interrupted by anxious thoughts levels of GABA and melatonin does not reach the threshold necessary to induce sleep. More concerning is how a lack of sleep affects the brain. During a healthy sleep cycle a nervous system functions like a dishwasher cleaning up the waste proteins and toxins produced by active brain cells during the day. But without enough sleep, the body does not have enough time to completely clean up the waste produced by brain. In the same way dishwasher cannot properly clean dishware if turned off in mid-cycle. If feeling groggy after a restless night it is actually experiencing effects of a toxin buildup in brain. If sleeplessness cycle continues for extended period of time, there is a longer lasting detrimental effects on the brain and overall health.

Sleep, sleep,
Don’t peep,
Night is coming soon;
Mama tucks her sleepyheads,
Snugly in their cozy beds;
Sleep, sleep,
Don’t peep,
Night is coming soon.
Soon…

Good night,
Sleep tight,
May your dreams be sweet;
Twinkling stars, their watch will keep,
While the angels guard your sleep,
Good night,
Sleep tight,
May your dreams be sweet.
Sweet…
