Jesus said, most assuredly, I say to you, you will see heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending upon Son of Man in John 1:51 in Bible. People are truly seeing manifestation of angels in dreams or visions daily. These angels are already on earth so actively at work among us, working miracles, healings, deliverances, saving souls, bringing gifts among other duties as God instructs them on our behalf. So many things happen on our behalf that sometimes are not even seen or known about. However, at other times God is willing to open the physical eyes of our understanding in visions and dreams. This is to let us know God is still on the throne so everything is under control. God is sending Jesus and the angels to earth when the time is right. It may not be the way mankind wants things to be done because people want to hold on to power. Causing chaos, confusion and a rebellion against God. However, the changes taking place is to restore earth to the original perfection God planned. God allows mankind like the prodigal son to go check things for themselves to return in humility to God once and for all. Knowing there is nothing better out there luring mankind through sin. Prior to Jesus’ prophecy, Jacob also dreamt so saw a ladder set up on the earth and the top if it reached to heaven. Jacob saw angels of God ascending and descending on ladder ministering to him to serve him food and drinks to nourish him.Acts 2:17 states it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh AND YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS, and your old men and women shall dreams. and prophecy. These words are written in Bible from God Almighty concerning the modern world. God continues to reveal HIMSELF to ALL FLESH even all those who do not believe in God to show events coming to take place on earth. As Jacob dreamt in Genesis 10:22-28 saw angels climbing up and down a ladder from heaven connecting to earth. This is a well documented living history and so Jesus says people will continue to see in visions, dreams and physically angels.Again in Joel 2:28, the prophet said, in the last days, God says, I will pour out My Spirit on all people; your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions and your old men and women shall dream dreams. Again God includes ALL PEOPLE in the scheme of things to come during endtime as all human beings on earth will be affected by the events unfolding on earth. God in His Mercy and Grace is revealing many important information to human beings to take notice to prepare for Jesus Christ return to earth. Everyday or night God’s angels God surround us working hard to save, heal, deliver in times of agony as Jesus was in Gethsemane. The angels send souls back to God in heaven after their passing, and comforts loved ones grieving loss mourning with hope.

Among runners one moment a woman, collapsed on the ground and frothing at the mouth the next. For a short time she is lost to the convulsion and then she scrambles to her feet and sprints away. Katie Cooke will not let epilepsy get in the way of a race. The 19 year old student from Cherrywood South Dublin has what her specialist doctor calls “an arsenal of epilepsy, contends with 15 convulsions daily that makes her unconscious. Katie said, “her whole body shakes feeling her muscles jump, like everything has been sucked out of her so cannot breathe. So every single day she often loses control. Despite having to cope with multiple seizures, Cooke won prestigious events including her age group in the Dublin City Marathon and she runs 5km in under 17 minutes. She is often seen pounding the streets with her running partner, Dr Colin Doherty, who is her consultant neurologist. But she was not always so athletic.
Diagnosed at the age of nine with frontal lobe epilepsy, she managed condition with medication until it deteriorated when puberty hit and her hormones started “kicking up.”She was not able to get out of bed, unable to do anything for herself and could not really speak. My Mum was dressing and showering me,” she says. Cooke was admitted to Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Crumlin where she remained for 10 months. Despite being involved in numerous medical trials she regressed, lost control of her back and hips, and by the time she was discharged she wasn’t able to walk. And she could not hold herself up in a wheelchair for about seven months but being stubborn person wanted to prove to people what she could do. After a lot of physio started jogging every day and started to absolutely love the freedom.
Cooke now runs every day and says a missed session sees the tiredness and dizziness of her earlier condition return. Running only alleviates her symptoms, it has not been a cure. The raised heart rate brought on by running triggers more seizures than if she did not run, but Cooke says it improves her general well-being which is a negative worth accepting. Her neurologist, Dr Doherty, has weighed up the pros and cons from a medical perspective. “The particular challenges of having epilepsy and long-distance running are similar to walking challenges too and I think the general benefits outweigh these risks,” he says. “If you took the average long-distance runner and measured all their health parameters against someond who does not run you would find, no matter what disease or disorder they carry with them, they are better off.” So health conditions affected by starting exercise, it is always important to consult your doctor first.
Dr Colin Doherty explains epilepsy
The brain consists of about three billion cells and all of these cells are active, but they do not fire together, the brain is a de-synchronised machine. A signature of epilepsy is the cells fire together in a synchronised way. If a million cells fire together it causes a change in behaviour, when all three billion cells fire together that causes convulsion or a fit. There are about 40 distinct types of epilepsy. In some cases people will just stare blankly, others will wander around in a confused state and there are those who fall to the ground with convulsions. Competitive running was initially a non-starter for Cooke. As soon as she had a convulsion during a race paramedics withdraw her from the event, but a chance comment at one of her consultations led Doherty to offer himself as her running partner and he has kept her on track ever since. He says: “I’m a specialist in epilepsy but my sole role when running with Katie is to stop people from taking her off in an ambulance. I just stand there and say ‘Katie’s fine, I’m her doctor, she’s going to recover.” Despite Cooke’s seizures, the nature of her epilepsy means her body does not require lengthy recovery time, she is able to immediately get up and run again. Doherty believes it is her fitness levels which help with recovery.
Hear more from Katie and Colin
Listen to the BBC Ouch talk-show to find out more about Katie Cooke, Dr Colin Doherty and their running partnership. “Katie is a very serious runner, and she trains properly. I’m very confident that this is a really positive experience for her,” he says. As well as sport, college, Cooke also has to navigate a social life and relationship with partner Jack, a role most daunting at night when Cooke’s seizure’s make her scream, thrash around and cause the bed to shake and shudder. Cooke says: “He’s one of the most chilled people I know and he sleeps through my seizures which is a bit weird. He wakes up for the odd one because some are quite violent and was slapped in the face before, but he just falls asleep again.” In terms of intimacy Cooke says sex does not trigger seizures, although a fit can occur at such times, and women report an increase in convulsions around the time of ovulation and their period.
Her nightime seizures are accompanied by hallucinations of a shadowy man who she says “comes for her” and it is these which leave her most exhausted. She does not sleep well at all,” she says. Her education suffered and she missed the majority of secondary school. Despite that, she managed to cram three years worth of curriculum for the Irish Leaving Certificate into one year, secured a place at college to study sports management. Doherty calls her a “remarkable young woman” for all she has achieved while handling so many severe convulsions on a daily basis. When people watch Katie drop to the floor mid-run it is alarming but Doherty believes being public about it will help others with the condition. So there is need to facilitate people to live a normal life as possible and they need to be encouraged to do everything, he says. The biggest barrier is not the safety issue but the perceptions of other people.”
Christianity is not a white man’s religion or slave master’s religion as make belief fallacy assumes. The white people in the West did not introduce Christianity to Africans through slavery. The Africans introduced Christianity 2,000 years ago when African Christian history began in Bible in Genesis with Mitochondrial Eve and Adam before Bible was completed. The Garden of Eden had 4 rivers flowing through Africa Cush, Ethiopia Abyssinia, Egypt, Sudan, Kenya, Uganda and east Africa. People of Africa know the God of the Bible as shown in time of Abraham who lived in Canaan with converts to Judaism and moved once to Egypt during famine. Hagar the mother of Ishmaelites was from Egypt and Jacob lived in Egypt during famine with Joseph. Moses’ wife Zipporah was an Egyptian and Joseph lived in Egypt as the Pentateuch points out. God delivered the people of Israel through Moses in oral history of God’s nature and God’s dealings with HIS people. Generations later God led Israel out of the Egyptian slavery and many Egyptians recognized the God of the Bible as God Almighty. Queen of Sheba was first mentioned in the Bible as this word queen referred to Black woman in 1 Kings 10:1. The queen of Sheba heard of fame of Solomon and his relationship to the Lord so she came to test Solomon with hard questions. And brought many spices as never brought in ever again as queen Sheba gave to Solomon.
Scholars say Moses’ wife, Zipporah was black as she was a Cushite in Numbers 12:1. Cush is the ancient name of areas of Africa. The Shulamite woman is black in Song of Solomon 1:5 in Bible. Some say Bathsheba in 2 Samuel 11:3 was black so was Simeon the Niger in Acts 13:1. The Ethiopian eunuch in Acts &:37 was black. Ethiopians are mentioned 40 times in Bible references to black people. Since Ethiopians are black, prophet Jeremiah asked, can Ethiopian change his skin in Jeremiah 13:23 referring to a black skin. Most Bible teachers believe black people are descendants of Noah’s son Ham in Genesis 10:6-20 in Bible. When it comes to active roles blacks play in Bible often white writers consistently are silent. So instead of giving due credit to blacks in living history, tone down the colour of the skin as not important to God as the condition of the heart. The gospel is a universal good news to black people, white people and every shade in between invited to come to Christ for salvation. By the grace of God black are included in the covenant of God with all the nations on earth. So black skin created by God is highly valued, precious, priceless focus on black soul matters to God in Christ.
After Jeremiah 1,500 years later, people of Africa were exposed to the God of the Bible as Jesus dwelt with them in Egypt. The Coptic church has memorialized the person of Jesus Christ who was taken by Mary and Joseph into Egypt to protect Him from the wrath of Herod. 30 years later Jesus faced crucifixion in Jerusalem weak, tortured, towards execution, it was black African man Simon of Cyrene who helped Him carry His Cross in Matthew 27:32. The Apostle Mark names Simon of Cyrene as the father of Alexander and Rufus. After Jesus died and rose again He ascended and His apostles filled with the Holy Spirit, empowered proclaims gospel message during Pentecost. For festivals in Jerusalem, proselytes travelled from African Churches among many people from many places. Africans from places such as Egypt and Libya and all people under the heavens gathered in Jerusalem for Pentecost. Included Jewish converts who came from every nation under the heavens to Jerusalem at Pentecost as 33 C.E. account describes the Pentecost crowd of people. 3,000 people converted that day in Acts 2:38 when Peter said to them, Repent be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of all sins and you will receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.The African converts took gospel to their homelands after these celebration. Acts 2:9 states this following list of all people from places in Jerusalem 3 times a year. As “Parthians, Medes and Elamites and residents of Mesopotamia. Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia Pamphylia, Egypt, parts of Libya of Cyrene, visitors from Rome, Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians.”All people in Jerusalem included Jews as the text says There, dwelling in Jerusalem were Jews devout men from every nation under heaven.” Most were Jews by birth but in the crowd were Gentiles converted to Jewish faith. Devout Jews together with proselyte Gentiles were present each year in the crowd from every nation under heaven for 33 years in Jerusalem in Jesus’ lifetime and after. About 3 million Jews and converts in Jerusalem go in the temple on appointed days during 3 major festivals in Hebrew calendar which calls for people in Israel to be in the temple. These pilgrimage festivals of Feast of Passover are Pesach, in the Hebrew language in early spring; the Feast of Weeks, “Shavuoth,” which occurred fifty days later in later spring or “Pentecost,” means 50 days after Jesus Resurrection.” A third major pilgrimage festival is Feast of Booths or Tabernacles, “Sukkoth,” in the fall. So the Christian gospel made its way into Africa not in the 17th century through colonization but in first century within months of Jesus’ life and after His death by blacks to black people.
Several Africans play key roles in book of Acts where gospel continues to spread beyond Jerusalem. Apollos, an African of Alexandria became influential teacher and co-labourer of the Apostle Paul. The church at Antioch sent Paul and Silas as missionaries working with 2 key leaders of African descent, Simon called Niger and Lucius of Cyrene. The most famous African in New Testament is Ethiopian eunuch’s conversion recounted in Acts 8. Ethiopian eunuch was a high-ranking member of Queen Candace of Ethiopia’s court. While traveling back to Ethiopia from Jerusalem was reading the words of the prophet Isaiah from the Septuagint Old Testament translated from Hebrew into Greek in Africa. While reading he encountered Philip an evangelist who explained gospel to him, assured him of his salvation and baptized him. The Ethiopian already made yearly trips to Jerusalem previously as a Jewish convert. Now returned home rejoicing, bringing the gospel of Jesus Christ with him into Ethiopia where Jesus’ Church maintains consistent witness for two millennia. As gospel moved to Africa from Jerusalem it grew spreading to Europe and elsewhere. The book of Acts 11:20 reveals Africans were evangelizing with non-Africans so over the next several hundred years the African Christians had a tremendous impact on Western Christianity. And so the Western missionaries who came to Africa nearly 2,000 years later brought with them understanding of Christianity influenced by Africans.
The core Christian doctrines that says American slave masters passed on to black slaves in the 17th through 19th centuries were shaped in large part by whites. African Christians nearly 2,000 years before know God before doctrines of the colour, race, nature of Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the nature of the Trinity were formally codified at Church Council of Nicaea. Nicaea and other Christian councils included bishops from all over the Christianized world. And Nicaea had members from East including Africa and the West. It was culturally and ethnically diverse group of bishops not whites who translated teachings of Scripture to the creedal statements that these councils produced and all orthodox Christians follow. So the creedal statement was influenced by writings and the teachings of African theologians like Augustine, Alexander, Athanasius, Cyril and others.
David Livingston in 1813-1873 succeeded in his desire to expose the slave trade as his dominant motive. Proving the source of the Nile as geographical part of Africa was important to Livingstone. He proved the Bible was true by tracing the African roots of Judaism and Christianity. And he met generations later Africans who continued keeping black Jewish belief and Torah practices. Livingstone also on Africa in 1841 wrote, it was as exotic as outer space called the “Dark Continent” and “White Man’s Graveyard.” although the Portuguese, Dutch, and English were pushing into the interior, African maps had blank unexplored areas no roads, no countries, no landmarks. So Livingstone helped to redraw maps exploring a dozen countries including the hinterland South Africa, Rwanda, Angola, and Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire). And he made the West aware of the continuing evil of African slavery which led to it being later outlawed. He was awed by the beauty of Zambezi river used for human misery. It linked the Portuguese colonies of Angola and Mozambique, the main suppliers of slaves for Brazil who in turn sold to Cuba and United States. Though Livingstone was partially driven by a desire to create a British Christian colony, his primary ambition was to expose the slave trade and cut it off at the source. The strongest weapon in his task as he believed was for the Christian commercial civilization. He wanted to help replace the “inefficient” slave economy with a proper respect of black economy to buy and sell goods not fellow human beings and God’s people.
Hence whoever identifies misconstrues Christianity as ‘a white man’s religion’ must understand it is not true. Faith in God belongs to all nations under heaven not exclusively as a white religion but is a universal belief. So cannot be made white as Jesus’ bleached image makes Him whiter by overlooking exceedingly important role of blacks, Africans in the Bible in living church history. Original true Christianity comes from finished work of Jesus CHRIST not whites. Jesus “gave himself for all to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify His people as His own Titus 2:14. So all individuals of every tribe, language and people and nation belong to God says Revelation 5:9 as citizens of heavens. As James 1:13-14 says, let no one say when tempted to be evil say “I am tempted by God for God cannot be tempted with evil and so God tempts no one. Each person tempted to do evil is lured and enticed by his own evil desires. People cannot reject God then blame and accuse God for being a white racist by their wicked actions. And salvation is a personal decision required into the kingdom of God through Christ alone so whites are not the gatekeepers of heaven. Bitterness and anger against those who do evil in the name of God is fully recorded in Book of Life by God who takes full notice. During Judgement Day God will throw them in hell if they do not repent. You do not want to be their neighbours in hell so it is important not blame others especially God if not living right within the will of God. And humble yourself, repent to be saved in Christ not to miss heaven because of being misled to think Christianity belongs to whites. All have sinned and fallen short of the grace of God as sinners whether black, white, yellow or red. God loves all people so does not want anyone to reject Christ perish. Accept the key to entering God Almighty’s Kingdom through Christ for Christians as the only way of salvation in Christ alone not whites. Above all, God is not a white racist supremacist so LOVES all people who love and honour HIM in Christ. God created all people, provides life, food, sunshine, rain, shelter for all including HIS enemies. God wants all saved in Christ so stop divisive use of the Christian Gospel to preach hatred and divisions in the name of Father God in Christ Jesus Name.
A mega Comet WF9 comes near earth on 25th February 2017 as NASA detected the object approaching Earth. The asteroid is somewhat dark, and possibly a comet, but without the comet-like dust and gas cloud will strike Earth to trigger mega-tsunami according to online rumours. It is so huge you will be able to see it from Britain on 25th February 2017. Mystery space rock is on collision course with Earth according to crackpot theorists. Nasa confirmed mysterious 2016 WF9 is closely approaching Earth and we should be able to see it orbit the planet. Asteroid heads towards Earth as the space rock was detected by NASA in late November 2016. It is in the middle of its of.9 year orbit between Jupiter and Earth and will approach us on February 25, flying by at a distance of 32 million miles from the planet, they claimed. The comet will be near earth close enough to be seen visibly if the weather permits. Let us hope we can see this comet WF9 and earth will be safe at the same time. So science confirms God’s creation of the universe as comets are described in the Bible. Often the writers and prophets include comets or asteroids as part of their writings or warnings from God. So these large comets are mentioned in the Bible many times as part of God’s firmaments. Bible describes many comets used in the past as part of God’s weapon of warfare against HIS enemies. Book of Revelation in the Bible warns of endtime asteroids to be unleashed by God as part of HIS weapons of mass destruction of earth as punishment before its restoration. God Says do not mistreat stranger or oppress him remember you were once strangers in Exodus 22:21. If a widow or fatherless child is to cry out to God because of the ill treatment of others, God promises He will pour out His fierce wrath upon their oppressor and kill them so their wives would be widows and their children too will fatherless according to Exodus 22 : 22–24. God will punish some nations with huge comets so we to see the type of comet used by God for destruction in advance before Armageddon unleashes comets for real to vanquish all evil on earth. Bible says, woe to those who devise iniquity and work evil upon their beds at night so when morning is light they execute it because power is in their hand in Micah 2:1. Isaiah declared, those terrible ones are brought to nothing so scorners will cease to exist on earth in Isaiah 33:15. One cannot treat people as worthless to take away their rights or take advantage of their time, talents, or work and expect God’s blessings. Other minds on internet claim non-existent astronomer accused space agency of a cover up. So suggest space rock fragment heading straight to earth according them. Some people demonstrated illustration of what would happen if asteroid struck Earth.
The Bible and modern scientists reveal terrifying effects of doomsday asteroid collision effects on the earth. Some of the craters cause annihilation of those parts of the earth where it crash landed. The impact causes wildfires in dry zones with forests while causing the tsunami floods of Biblical proportions of Noah’s days. Sudden death of living things bury the ones hit hard and unable to escape including the huge animals excavated.So one third of the earth will be destroyed in the Biblical narrative of Revelations. This forms part of the great tribulations warned about although only God knows the exact time, date and which comet HE WILL USE. The most important thing to do is endure one belongs to God in Christ as HIS Child in HIS KINGDOM coming soon on earth ruled by Yeshua Messiah. Meanwhile NASA launches the space missions to Jupiter’s trojan mysterious METAL asteroid to investigate further.
Nasa experts believe the 2016 WF9 asteroid is between 0.3 and 0.6 miles across. If correct, it would be likely to burn up on entry to. Dr Zakharovich claims it is much larger and will blast through the Earth’s atmosphere with ease. The bizarre claims come as an international bid to save humanity from doomsday asteroids run out of cash. The mission hailed as dry run for apocalypse was due to work out how to steer space rocks away from the Earth.
SELF-ACCEPTANCE is influenced by the sublime messages of society children are receiving in the early years. Later as adults in life they bear the consequences of living with others perceived as less than themselves in the communities. A caring attitude towards self-acceptance from a healthy point of view is to detox vitriol hatred seeds sown in early childhood. Educational courses often have biased racist undertones and social networks reinforce hatred of some children in schools. Subtle suggestions becomes inner critic causing grieve by inability to be the perfect child accepted or as adult in society. Pressure to fulfil unrealistic dreams by comparing oneself to another is underlying strategy causing anger and division in society. Propaganda tells the false stories through books and images to influence innocent minds to become racists. So it is important to look at the context in which the person questions self- hatred spewing negative ideas about themselves projecting self- hatred on towards others. People are comparing themselves by the views of people’s lives on social media, TV and in the news. So it becomes easy to convince yourself that everyone is having a better time than you. Recognise you are strong, list what makes you personally happy and have a sense of meaning of life, inner peace for good success, joy and happiness. Believe in God, love Jesus, yourself and family even if not perfect. Do not look up to the external visible surface lifestyle of others but deep within inside yourself to use gifts and talents God gave you. Lots of money spent lavishly and glamorously lasts only a short season before craving a new thrill. Those you admire look cool in your eyes but have no deep God morals.
Invite Jesus in your heart to strengthen you to overcome self hatred and racism. Change your mindset, do small things to make you feel good like eating healthy food and sleeping well. Play works with children struggling with confidence and low self-esteem. Self-acceptance is to change misinformation, bias to think well of yourself in line with GOD’S plan for your life. Take responsibility for your wellbeing and eliminate stress. Some people feel ashamed about who they are due to propaganda targeting them as inferior. Be really honest with yourself to transform and renew your mind. Talk to yourself in the mirror daily and declare I am fearfully and wonderfully made in the Image of God. Accept flaws, use your voice be the best you can be, confident, sure of self-acceptance to overcome any low self-esteem issues. Know what you want from life above all and let peace of mind and inner joy reign in your heart with sound mind of Christ. In reality it is helpful and useful to build up confidence in own head first. To help others see you as reliable, trustworthy, interdependable. Everybody is unique so celebrate yourself and do not look for any affirmation approval before you feel human. Only you can do what you do so be the best you, you can be. Others will respond or react to how best you present yourself and what you spew out of your own mouth. Misery loves company so a pity party attracts the wrong people into your life making things worse. You can overcome by rejecting negative voices unaware was implanted from childhood damaging your life. Life is easy, simple if you know how and believe in God your maker’s opinion about you. Everything will be okay stay strong this is your year. Focus and believe in yourself to love you first and love others as God’s people.
