God’s joint heirs are kings and priests of God in Christ Jesus. There is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; you are ALL ONE IN MESSIAH YESHUA. In MESSIAH you are Abraham’s seed heirs according to promise in Galatians 3:27–29. Today know Jesus better by READING BIBLE to STUDY LIKE BEREANS not just do what so called fake control freak cult pastors order you to do to manipulate your life. Messiah Jesus is coming to decide your reward based on if you are HIS SHEEP. Not what the fake prophet misquoted in Bible designed to lie to you because you lack knowledge. God says MY PEOPLE are destroyed for lack of knowledge of Bible. God says Study to show yourself APPROVED TO GOD not show off Bible verses you memorized. But APPLY the Bible to each need you have, read the specific TEXT daily to meet your need.Each one faces God alone on judgement day so remember God will not ask about what the pastor told you. God demands account of your PERSONAL LIFE not the total social media number of followers, bank accounts, mansions, private jets, size of your family, your status, class, colour or race. Each person must share Gospel to DIRECT PEOPLE TO GOD IN CHRIST. The Church you attend or the denomination is IRRELEVANT TO GOD. Letter to seven Churches in Bible warns Churches. Israel and Jewish people are ONE IN CHRIST JESUS to fulfill all God’s feasts, prophecies covenant promises. Isaiah 27:6 says, God will cause them that come of Jacob to take root Israel shall blossom and bud to fill the face of the world with fruit. The people of Israel return from parts of the world their ancestors dispersed take root. The land is blessed and people blessed in the world. Israel’s desert desolate is a major exporter of food to the world. The crops are major export by companies in Israel Isaiah predicted. Isaiah predicted in the Word of God over 2,600 years ago fruit of the land blessing Earth with physical food exported and fruits of God’s Word confirms by Holy Spirit in Christ Jesus. Zechariah says all nations on earth will come yearly to Israel to celebrate Feast of Tabernacles to worship LORD of Hosts. Zechariah 14:16. Isaiah points to road connecting Egypt to Assyria and through this area access road is being built called King’s Highway. Building a super highways links them with all the surrounding nations. These prophesies of Isaiah and Zechariah prepares way in advance in time for Messiah’s rule from His Throne in Israel. Jesus Rules whole Earth and all people will know God in the millennial kingdom in Israel after rapture and His second coming on earth after Armageddon. The land is prepared today to fulfil prophecy of Messiah Jesus as KING of Kings and Lord of lords. And above all countless multitudes of people of all nations, tribes, languages, colours, BELONGS TOGETHER IN HEAVEN AND LATER DWELL ON EARTH WITH GOD. God is not a respecter of persons to put any person above others by class, race, colour, wealth or status. Death is their leveller making all equal before God. No man is bigger or stronger than Jehovah God no matter how powerful they may feel in own eyes to inflate their ego.
The Modern Bible Jonah, is the South African marine conservationist who has narrowly survived after being caught in the jaws of a whale. Rainer Schimpf, 51, was swept into the mouth of a large Bryde’s whale off the coast of the South African town of Port Elizabeth while snorkelling and filming a sardine run last month. Looming up out of darkness below came a Bryde’s whale shooting up into the ball of fish, gulping all in its path, as he told AFP, adding that his legs were hanging from mammal’s mouth during incident at end of February. And Rainer Schimpf, said he went back into the water straight after incident. Schimpf’s wife, Silke, a photographer watched on in horror from their boat, chartered to watch the sardines which creates a marine feeding frenzy off Africa’s southern coast. “I felt pressure around my waist and I immediately knew what happened. It accidentally included me in its mouth together with its main meal the sardines.” Schimpf, an award-winning conservationist with 20 years’ experience, said the ordeal lasted a “matter of seconds”rather than three nights Jonah spent in whale’s stomach, according to the Bible story.Whale realised mistake so opens mouth releasing me. I was washed out with what felt like tonnes of water from its mouth,” he said. Bryde’s whales can weigh up to 30 tons when mature and typically eat krill and fish. When he finally reached the surface he took a breath and rejoined fellow snorkelers who were unaware of the unfolding drama. “We swam back to the vessel, climbed up and checked if I and the camera were OK with no broken bones, no cracked ribs all was good,” he said. I was so “Pumped up with adrenaline and not wanting to miss the bait ball action, I went back into the sea this time looking for sharks,” he added with a smile. Schimpf extensively documented Orcas killing dolphins and their hunting behaviour. Is an authority on sardine tracking and predators that follow the sardine runs. Schimpf is undeterred following his narrow escape, telling AFP that “if I was to be reborn, I would like to come back as a whale.” Like Jonah’s miracle another story of modern event happened to this woman fished in sea. This miracle happened in Ghana when fishermen caught this woman alive in the sea trapped in the net while fishing. The woman said a stranger took her to a beach in a taxi so it’s a miracle that she survived three days in sea. She was free to go for refusing to turn to a mermaid. She is a modern-day Jonah found in the deep-sea waters and so survived human ritual sacrifice gone wrong. Said she met a stranger who took taxi and asked any nearby hotel with a seafront beach. In taxi to hotel nearby he administered substance to numb her senses she found herself inside the sea. Then a mermaid told her to join her in the sea but she refused so was told she must leave the sea. It was then she found herself in the net caught by the fishermen in Ghana. She was sacrificed by the stranger who thinks her life thrown away into the sea will be offering to gain the ritual money called sakawa. Lazy people want money for doing nothing deceived to murder innocent victims for ‘money’ rituals. Not knowing they are recruited by the devil to be destroyed by committing murder. God’s Creation will be given account for on judgement day and go to hell if they do not repent. Do hard work, live within your means it’s the best policy for your life not envy and jealousy to copy other people. The root of all evil is the greedy LOVE of money by those who do not love fellow human beings because evil spirits deceive them. Nobody brought anything into the world, no matter how rich they will take nothing out of world except your spirit soul back to God. So important to value all precious lives to preserve life not to kill for money. The Bible says in John 10:10 the devil comes to steal, kill and destroy but Jesus comes to give life to give life more abundantly in Jesus Name. The eternal life in God’s Kingdom is more precious than all gold, silver, diamonds and rubies. Why gain the whole world and lose your soul for material things of no value in heaven?
Stop dreams of swimming, drowning in floods of water struggling to keep afloat to survive in the sea, flashfloods, rivers. This types of dreams shows disturbance by the water and the marine spirits that are oppressing your life to attack you. The marine spirit through evil covenant of the person by an occult means, initiations, ancestral rituals and mind bending spells sent to try to enter your life to sabotage you. The ancestors perform river rituals affecting family or villagers who drink or wash in the river with taboos and totems to live by not to offend the gods and idols. The network of satanic bondage subjects the people’s spirit under their control. The moment swimming or drowning in the dream, it is an indication you are under soul tie covenant with water spirit relationship with spirit spouse. Families offer annual sacrifices to marine powers at riverside to reinforce covenant idol worshippers made. The evil spirits are invited to take good success and good fortunes away to destroy people. Unknown that they are being deceived to seek their ‘protection’ and wealth hidden under water. So the rituals of ancestors guarantee families to the devil to experience difficulties in business, career, no promotion progress in life. Dreams warn of such an attack if you decide to reject evil covenant as a result of salvation in Jesus Christ. The devil fights the person leaving to follow Jesus so thinks a spirit spouse dedicated from birth divorced them. So sabotages progress at the edge of breakthroughs. These dream causes anger, frustration, discomfort, affliction and bondage. The dream means difficult battle to prosper in whatever they do. Some have series of marital problems and marine spouse and children under the sea or in river. God rescues people in a flood drowning in their dreams by angels sent to save and deliver people’s glory caged to limit good success through dreams.

Rivers take away valuables shows loss from the devourer are after your glory and finance. When a dream is about a child taken away by water it means child dedicated to water spirit so child needs deliverance in Jesus Name. Child covenanted by an ancestral river or sea becomes stubborn and struggles with marriage and finances as an adult. If no child, it means a spirit child blocks natural human child so a problem with marriage or child-bearing. Washing the clothes in a flowing river/sea symbolises spiritual cleansing purification by God’s deliverance. It is shows you are washing dirts or curses placed on your garments. Disappointments or rejections by people replaced by new garment of restoration blesses your life to cooperate with your destiny. If in a dried water/river bed, its spiritual wilderness desert dryness so a disturbing dream. It means your plans will not work as planned except by your prayer and fasting to stop the dryness in your life and be revived in Jesus Name.
Supernaturally overcome if in a dream of floods or a river dried in the process or water stopped flowing towards your direction it means wrath of God descent on the water performs your deliverance to set you free from bondage. If dreamt something enters river or met, you need serious deliverance. All your hopes and endeavours captured in dreams dashed in real life so everything crumble before you. If waterspirit lives in you long time without spiritual alertness is threatened with eviction notice after salvation you became spiritually discerning. A wicked spirit controlling your life, possessions, progress in the water hates deliverance to cast it out. So this dream means seek deliverance pastor in Jesus Name to do powerful battle through Jesus to set you free to take you from grass to Grace in Jesus Name. Reject, renounce, break all evil covenant ties with satan, study and meditate on the Bible daily to remain in New Covenant with Jesus. If in dream a flood enters a room its sign of spiritual attack to waste people with troubles or problems. That wicked spirit does not want you to experience joy or comfort in your home. Pray God raises standard against them in Jesus Name. Fetching a clean water from the tap is purification by Jesus, LIVING Water. Your life will flourish to bring stability of mind, peace in your heart to do your responsibilities. Fetching water from stream or river is a sign struggling with various hardships of financial progress to rebuke in Jesus Name. Fast 3days, pray from 6am-6pm.

Break backbone of witchcraft against us, burn territory of marine spirit, break ancestor covenants affecting our lives. In the Mighty Name of Jesus We Command the spouse spirits to jump out and escape back to the cage of marine kingdom. We bind spirits of stagnation and shall not borrow to eat. We cover ourselves with Jesus BLOOD.

To 1000 generation the righteous family is blessed because of Covenant with God flowing repeatedly in Christ Jesus Name says Deuteronomy 7:9;5:10; Exodus20:6. God’s love is devoted to family thousand generations because they love and keep God’s law and commandments. God’s Word means its perpetual generations mentioned in Genesis 9:12 as God said the rainbow token sign of the covenant made between God, Noah and people is for the perpetual generations in the Ark after the flood. Almighty God makes covenants with mankind so their future generations are blessed. God’s covenant establishes unlimited benefit to families for past good deeds or sins repented of. God lavishes HIS affection, kind Favour on 1000 generations beyond to infinity to bless families. The righteous in each generation adds to the previous blessing multiplies to next generations. Youngest birth of guiness record book is 5years so the family receives blessing deserved as the rollover inherited in Psalm 37:23-40. God’s Generational Blessing in Bible is Direct Covenant with Abraham to ALL NATIONS on earth says Genesis 12:2-32. Psalm 112:2 generation blessings affects descendants so mighty in their land because generations of the upright are blessed so is seed mighty on earth. There are 79 Bible verses about a generational blessing transcending the family to future descendants. God told King David, his throne will last forever, Jesus will Reign on it from Israel. God’s Covenant never dies because His word is eternal. After Joseph died his brothers and all that generation gathered to their fathers and took their bones to Canaan. Thank God for Generational Blessing is as Word of Hope and Inspiration to the families to stand in agreement with God reminding them of the Goodness of God. Families reap rewards of a generational blessing of the righteous ancestors who obeyed and followed God. Every parent should Ask God to Fulfill HIS PROMISE so their children will be mighty in their land. The generation of the upright will be blessed because in Isaiah 44:3-5 God pours water on the thirsty to satisfy and quench thirst for the Living water Jesus flows from their belly. In Psalms 145:4, one generation will praise God’s works to another to declare HIS MIGHTY acts. In Psalms 100:5 the LORD’s Blessing is a Covenant with condition attached. God is merciful and gracious so forgives sins of the righteous who repent so humble themselves before God. And Activating Generational Blessings means coming into God’s PRESENCE through BLOOD of Jesus in Jesus Name. God promises that generational blessing will last beyond a thousand generations. God rewards all who LOVE HIM and descendants to a thousand generation. God forgives and overlooks sins repented of by sinner or by intercession of others on their behalf for God’s Mercy in Jesus Name.On the other hand, Numbers 14:18 says the LORD is slow to anger abounding in love and mercy but HE does not leave the guilty unpunished; HE punishes the children for sins of parents to third and fourth generation. In Deuteronomy 5:9, Bible says I AM the LORD your God, and a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon their children to the third and fourth generation. Sufferings in the family can be the consequences of past actions that current generations knows nothing about. But Jeremiah 31:29 says, In those days, it will no longer be said: The fathers have eaten sour grapes and their children’s teeth is set on edge. “In those days people will no longer say, its parent’s eaten sour grapes that set their children’s teeth on edge. To set teeth on edge induces unpleasant sensation that irritates like grinding noise of machines sets teeth on edge. The father’s eaten sour grapes” written in Ezekiel 18:2 is a CHANGE of heart as the LORD tells HIS people the father’s sin like eaten sour grapes does not mean that the children should be punished to have their teeth set on edge too. God’s Goodness extends to descendants in families. Ezekiel 18:2 shows people quote this proverb about land or fights during argument but God says an innocent family cannot inherit enmity from the ancestors. Concerning the land of Israel the father’s eaten sour grapes will not affect children’s teeth no more. Each person’s own teeth is set on edge since their mouth chews the sour grapes. Ezekiel 18:1-4, 25-32 of parent’s eaten sour grapes, and children’s teeth set on edge was a series of legal rulings describing good deeds of the righteous fathers creates blessings for a thousand years so evil deeds will not affect their son’s families anymore. Bible mentions generational blesses in Deuteronomy 28 and curses in several places in Exodus 20:5;34:7, Numbers 14:18; Deuteronomy 5:9). God warns HE is, a jealous God so, punishes children for sins of the fathers to third and fourth generation of those who hate ME. So God punishes children for the sins of their fathers because the effects of sin are naturally passed down from one generation to another. People at times assume it’s their unique culture different from Bible so it’s their right to practice their “culture.” Not realising it is sin against God punished to their next future generation. Spiritual wickedness in high places displayed as evil power to control and dominated others to subdue them against their will. Operates by lies, secret hidden occult ritual initiation and deception due to perversion abuses.The father’s sinful lifestyle copied by his children who practice the sinful lifestyle automatically follows in footsteps of the examples modelled by their fathers who don’t know any better. The warnings of Exodus 20:5 is children not to repeat sin of the fathers. Why put next generations through exact pain suffered by father’s persistent pattern of ungodly behaviour leading to rebellious children? God only punishes sin to the third and the fourth generation to stop the next generations committing same sins of ancestors. The trend in Church blames sin or problems as generational curses inherited. God’s warning to visit iniquity on generations is a consequence of sins of idolatry. The living history in Judges contain records of God’s divine punishment meted out to those who hate God. The generations who repent are blessed by God. When a nation turns from idols to serve LIVING God a curse is broken, God saves them in Judges 3:9, 15; 1 Samuel 12:10-11. God visits sins upon the third and the fourth generations of HIS stubborn enemies who hate God refusing to submit to HIM but in the next verse HE shows LOVE to thousand generations of those who love ME and keep MY commandments stated in Exodus 20:6. God’s Grace lasts longer a thousand times more than HIS wrath. If worried about generational curse, the answer is salvation through Jesus Christ as Christian and new creation in Christ the Bible 2 Corinthians 5:17 says there is now no more condemnation for you in Christ Jesus. A child of God still needs a deliverance from an inherited initiation or under God’s curse in Romans 8:1 by activating blessings through prayers to cancel all generational curses. Jesus told His disciples some demons require they fast and pray despite repentance of sins in question. Faith in Christ Jesus and the leading of a life consecrated to the Lord God is good to some enough if you do not come from satanic strongholds then inherited generational blessing already covers you in Romans 12:1-2. However, for those initiated into deep cults with human and animal blood sacrifices they need more than prayer of repentance to be set free in Jesus Name. Some cultures practice generational curses by insisting family member pay for sins of ancestors Trokosi, Osu or dedicated to idol for life because of sins of past generation made covenants. To stop fear and abuse those family shrines and their rivergod name unacceptable to God. Christian believer is given CHRISTian name to show under NEW Covenant of Jesus Christ. Forever Translated from kingdom of darkness to GOD’S KINGDOM OF GLORIOUS LIGHT IN JESUS NAME.
Almighty God Jehovah Nissi’s MIGHTY POWER strikes fear in the enemies that tremble at HIS fearful WONDERS when they hear about victory won for God’s Children. Daniel was protected by God’s POWER from the lion’s and from a fire heated seven times that killed soldiers stoking the fire but did not singe Daniel is among miracles. The Ark of covenant kept in an idol temple caused dagon to fall and break to pieces. The Holy Ghost POWER works through Jesus, disciples, and Churches empowered who believe to save people, heal the sick and deliver people from demons by casting out evil spirits in Name of Jesus. God’s MIGHTY POWER is used to build lives to restore people from bondage, afflictions or evil covenants. GOD’S MIGHTY POWER also is known to destroy Koresh and insolent rebellious friends talking against Moses by opening ground to swallow them all with their families. Though some cried to God and were spared. Elisha has used God’s POWER to kill children mocking his bald head eaten by bears he called to devour them. Paul and Peter manifest POWER of God in ministry to the extent Simon the sorcerer thought he can buy God’s POWER to show off to people vain glory. God’s POWER is desired by some people facing accusations of witchcraft mixed with belief and faith practices of God by some disciples. Authentic faith in God in Christ is confused with those using witchcraft activities to activate so-called miracles. Its important, necessary to successfully deal with accusations to set people free. God’s POWER is not for sale in witchcraft coven to compromise worship and service to God if mammon is the source of dangerous power. Bible warns of the angels of light performing the counterfeit miracles and wonders, calling fire from heaven but Jesus said beware of them. They will plead with Jesus, we did it in your name, but Jesus rejects them and says depart from me you doers of evil. And Elijah told God’s people not to hop in- between God and idols. So if God truly, exclusively, LORD choose God alone not both at the same time. Church’s hold onto selfprotection against evil attacks from witches and wizards causes their accusers to brag of control of such churches. So challenge and accuse them openly to respond or to deny sources of power. The church of satan declares their source of power is from satan seen by all know what they stand for. Spiritualist Church externally has Christian logos, decorations, Cross, pictures of Jesus, a holy water, worship God, mix ‘transfiguration’ with invoking spirits in air to give psychic messages to members of congregation from the dead relatives. This types of practice admits new age applications as part of religious experience but do not think that makes them evil as they help people to ‘know’ future predictions. Some accuse other Christian Churches supposed to live by Godly principles alone practising a false religion founded on deception. Spiritual circumstantial proof misunderstood or imagined evidence in some cases. The witnesses cannot easily share secrets or dismissed. Regular rituals imposed on pastor ensure incantation power works or sexual immorality is chosen method using members for sacrifices, death tax category is hidden from view but inner circle denies ‘satan’ accuser of brethren targeting the righteous people of God. In response to an accusation message, first the Church must discern the nature of accusation, source, purpose or evidence provided. Witchcraft practices if alive in Church Christian faith mixes traditional rituals of the community. Some pastors, reverends have a shrine at home, uses fetish in the home, travels with it in clothes or ties it around arms, waists and legs. The pastors often make statement revealing belief, involvement with witchcraft. Parishioners see use of fetish hidden in seclude corner of office by doors, wall, concealed underground in close proximity to important building pastors after visit to witchdoctor shrine for consultation. Or send ‘go-betweens’ to seek counsel on their behalf. The shy ones use a ministry assistant, spouse, friends or parishioners. Some pastors threaten enemies with evil witchcraft retaliation. The deeply involved pastors consult local, regional spirits. Prosperity gospel proclaiming independent church pastors travel for consultations. Clergy reports includes presents of animal and human sacrifices. Some pastors go out at night to carry out secret assignments as part of condition required to gain the power to be rich and famous to attract people to follow them. So the question is why is there need for a pastor ordained by the Living God to seek power from a source contrary to the Spirit of God. The people of God saw miracles but asked Aaron to make a golden calf to worship. As Moses went up the mountain, people of God in the valley already forgot God’s Goodness in crossing the red sea. Some doubt God’s LOVE in Christ in miracles falsely alluded to power of Beelzebub.
If Attention is FOCUSED more on God’s POWER FIRST so focus on human needs supplied by God’s Will demand increase LOVE of God not witchcraft magic. And a few mindbending spells craved to do fake miracles is not God approved so irrelevant. Towering evidence of idols, witches’ charms, lotions and the potions administered by humans is considered more powerful than praying to invisible unseen God. Looks like being not heard by God quickly leads people to seek an alternative instant results. So something felt or touched as their point of contact reassures them but is not fullproof good success. The result lasts for a while until more top up of ritual repeated reinforce power to repeat a cycle for generations. As pressure mounts on society for more materialist competitive fewer resources selfishness leads greedy in clique lodges affiliations, brotherhoods, illuminati all have solidarity code to control domains to rule and subdue others. In the same way, divide and ruled societies require a loyalty to secret cult members for the privileges of resources, class and status. Attention on members to recruit more to maintain flow of funds and resources abide by secret codes for promotion. So the new members take some time to be included in the highest level if reliable to the seniors. By the time they are now fully fledged members and sucked into an initiation ritual it’s too late to leave. A daredevil leader threatens them with death or retaliation if they leave. Fear is instilled in members who invest time or money for years fooled by a discovery of evil. This urge to control all people at all times so witchcraft terms conditions of rituals include sleeping Often a guise of spirit of unity of ‘one accord’ like the day of Pentecost is used to blackmail the ones refusing to conform. Any person challenging authority of spiritual abuse labeled Jezebel or Jonah so spewed out. Does this mean all churches depend on power of witches or wizard as if God’s Authority, Power no longer available to believers? Not really, because God told Moses Levites did not bow to golden calf just as the 7000 faithful people refused to bow in Elijah’s day to Jezebel’s idols. Righteous men and women devoted to God faithfully serve God in Spirit and in Truth. Congratulations to all the faithful believers appreciated, standing strong in the midst of adversity. Few badapples mislead naive people who do not know deeper things behind scenes. Endtime is approaching for rapture so important to know where one stands with God. Bible says even the very elect can be deceived if not careful and alert. All must watch and pray to be sure their salvation is in Christ Jesus in God. In Acts 8:9-25 Simon the Sorcerer for some time followed and observed God’s POWER at work desired power to buy without an understanding of direct connection to God in Christ. It is a similar mindset today that things of faith in God like a pick and mix sweet shop. A little bit of this and a little bit of that faith trend is popular for thinking all roads leads to heaven. ABSOLUTE POWER OF Authority from God vested in Christ alone approved by God is the authentic power at work through Jesus Christ. Simon the Sorcerer recognised a true POWER different from the sorcery familiar spirit he used. The man named Simon had practiced sorcery in the city amazed people with counterfeit magical powers. Until he crossed paths with the servants of God and now wanted God’s POWER for working miracles. Instead of repenting, casting away evil spirits and asking forgiveness from God he wanted to combine both to deceive people. And in Acts 8:18 when Simon saw the Spirit was given through laying on of hands he wanted to buy that power. But God’s POWER is not for sale, never will be for freely given and freely received to the GLORY of GOD ALMIGHTY. Simon saw the Spirit was imparted when apostles laid their hands on people, so offered them money to buy God’s POWER. How much can anyone pay for God POWER? How much do you have worthy of God’s POWER when Jesus paid Ultimate price with His life and BLOOD to set us free!!! Seek first, Kingdom of God’s salvation in Christ, all these things are added by God for HIS GLORY and TESTIMONIES of the BLOOD of the Lamb Jesus defeats devil.
Assurance of Christ in eternal life is for all because Jesus LIVES you live also in eternal life Jesus Name. Notice soldiers sign up to work boldly facing death and fully aware they not live. Christians face death knowing eternal life awaits them in heaven. Life and death are two sides of life so look at this coin with hope and know Jesus at the right of God watching waits for those in Christ as Justinian and Tiberius on his right. David R. Sear provides a Certificate of Authenticity for this coin with explanation: “The Portrait on coin was based on ICON believed by the people of time bears this miraculous resemblance to Christ’s appearance.” So did Constantinople the Christian king’s gold bust testifies of his Christian faith.Constantine I, AD 307-337. Gold Solidus (4.2g) minted in Nicomedia. Two sided coin shows angel associated with death and life helping in grief afterlife passing of loved ones. Words used in grief helps for good to heal or hurt and succumb to overwhelming pain. And Proverb 18:21 says power of life and death in a tongue strengthens faith in God or weakens it. Two strong emotions surface by a death to mourn with hope in Christ in God for future reunion with loved ones.
Henry VIII of England’s Angel gold coin measuring 29mm, with a weight of 5.12 grams. This was among the King’s first coinage struck at the Tower, Royal Mint.
The legend around the coin: HENRIC VIII DI GRA REX AGL Z FR around the image of the Archangel Michael slaying the Dragon.
PER CRVCE TVA SALVA NOS XPC REDE. A ship bearing royal shield and cross, the letter “H” and rose flanking cross.Queen Elizabeth I’s gold angels differed little from Father’s her name positioned right of Archangel’s depiction minted between 1578 and 1581. At Kenilworth in 1575 Queen Elizabeth I often publicly prepared for healing ritual associated with Angel coins ‘prostrate on knees, body and soul rapt in prayer.’ Known to lay hands on subjects, and made sign of cross, with gold angel, over location of sore or affliction. The inscription on the reverse side of her Angel coins read in Latin: “This is the Lord’s doing and it is marvellous” for healing itself or words spoken by then-princess Elizabeth upon learning of death of older sister Queen Mary I to make her Queen of England!An angel example issued by King Henry VI as king of France. The coin weighed 2.34 grams and was struck between the years 1427-1449. The legend: HENRICVS: FRANCORV: AND: A(nglia): REX. Image of Archangel Gabriel over coats of arms of France and England. On reverse, the legend: XPE: VINCIT: XPE: REGNAT: XPE: IMPERAT’s simple cross flanked by a lily and leopard. People literally used death coins Chanol obol to pay the river crossing toll in afterlife. Others used the coins hold eyes shut during funerals. So yet again the expression of death has a function of duality just as life after grief is a double-sided. One remembers loved one’s memories but continues to live in the here and now simultaneously. And gratitude continues to increase in value as study after study has found a robust association between higher gratitude and wellbeing. Protection from stress and depression, fulfilling relationships, better sleep and greater resilience.” It can be a simple spending part of every day for two weeks writing a list of three things for which grateful. “As pages in diary fills up with a scribbled gratitude started to find concept less vomitous, so Sarner wrote. After four weeks counting gratitude keeps doing it. Even in a midst of death and grief can find joyful ending of pain and suffering, gratitude of years spent together, privilege of medical care and ability to see and bury loved one as friends gather to support or help family, memorial service, giving thanks to God for the gift of eternal life IN CHRIST and worship God, sing songs praising God use Psalms and Bible verses to reinforce trust in God. Faith comes by hearing the word of God, do not let grief overwhelm you to destroy you. Commit family into God’s Hands to protect you from further evil destructions and to cover you with Jesus BLOOD in JESUS NAME. unexpectedly death lost partner of 19 years. His 41-year-old wife Joy died suddenly about a year ago. Over the last 12 months discovered for him, the answer is doodling – a doodle a day to cope with grief. Gary, animator and illustrator worked on Fireman Sam and for Disney, began his doodle diary, shared on social media on 55th birthday in 2016. Uses digital media at night to do little sketch based on things happening daily.” Following her death, 27 October:Image copyrightGARY ANDREWSImage copyrightGARY ANDREWSImage copyrightGARY ANDREWSImage copyrightGARY ANDREWS. His week started with wife waving him off at Heathrow Airport on a Monday for a work trip to Canada. A few days feeling ill with flu-like symptoms, Joy was taken to hospital on Thursday with suspected kidney infection, condition deteriorated rapidly. On the Friday at 03:15 she died from multiple organ failure caused by sepsis. Gary, in the departure lounge in Vancouver waiting for emergency flight home, was told when he landed back in the UK. He had lost the woman he had been married to for 13 years, the person he describes as his best friend, and the mother of his two children Lily, then 10, and Ben, seven. At times a rollercoaster up and down sadness or joy depending on triggers of a music, favourite foods, scents friends, activities. Despite the pain must remain to live for that person too who wishes a happy life for loved ones after passing. It’s important to try for their sake to pull through and smile again, eat, dress well and begin living again. First few days of bereavement of grief, worse; sudden change of direction by unexpected death forces one to make life without the loved ones. God’s angels surround us to help with the family sent from God the Comforter. The Holy Spirit helps grief to be borne in hope through assurance of eternal life in resurrection. There is no specific formula for grief or sorrow so people deal with pain in their own way meaningful to them. Do what you can, ask friends and family to help with any issues made complex by death. It’s not weakness to ask for help and do not wait for people to “offer” help first because they may feel like giving you a private space to grief. Talk about loved ones, laugh over their jokes, keep on in life do not stop living because they want you to be happy even grieving for them.George Shelly on his sister’s death says “There are no rules when it comes to grief it’s about doing what feels right for you.” One thing that massively helped me is learning how vital exercise is for mental health. I started exercising when I started getting angry, towards the end of last year. I was punching walls in fits of rage and had load of broken knuckles and scabs, a mess taking frustration and force out on objects and on myself. So started doing meditation in my room, and went to yoga classes, a brother Will, who is a marine, taught me how to lift weights and it’s made me feel so much better mentally. I’d go into the gym with a knot of frustration, anger and turmoil in my stomach, and leave feeling it was untied. The documentary made about grief was trying to come to terms with Harriet’s death. When I started filming, I couldn’t say Harriet’s name out loud without breaking down. It was intense and so damn hard. But hearing other people’s stories of grief, and how they dealt with it, is part of learning how you deal with it yourself. And I learnt that it’s important to allow yourself to feel vulnerable, to accept the crutches that work for you or for antidepressants see a psychiatrist. There is no right way of dealing with this pain you need to know there is support out there, and to not be afraid to ask for it. GEORGE SHELLEY on BBC THREE shared his experience with mental health as it’s something I never thought in a billion years I had to deal with. Through shock, you question what life is a lot. When you have that much of a dramatic change in life, you change. You look in mirror and you’re faced with different person. Losing Harriet is something I am going to deal with for the rest of my life. I feel her smiling with me wherever I am. Her birthday is Christmas day so my future kids will know it’s Christmas, but that it’s also Auntie Harriet’s birthday. We’ll keep saying name keep to remember.Mandi Knepp wanted to show strength so brave for self and others but knew Kendall will not come back after death.

I know the guys usually late at wedding and so they don’t want be there. But got a surprise when all the guys were there standing in the spot where they would have been at the church. I was in shock they took time and they cared enough to do that for me. The images went viral when her photographer posted them on Facebook. Although that changed what Jessica had wanted to be that personal moment, it also brought extra meaning.“I got messages from grieving people I don’t know, telling me stories and how strong and brave I was. They said if I do it so can they. Photos highlighted many ways people grieve if they lost loved one particularly at a young age. After photos felt did something good, felt bit stronger but next day comes and brings back all the sad moments and emotions about him.” She says the photos made her feel closer to Kendall sees him now laughing at it going viral. He brought the strength to those pictures honestly felt presence.Speaking to The Telegraph at Christmas Miss Lamplugh’s father opened up on how he wondered how his daughter’s life would have turn out. Mr Lamplugh, former solicitor aged 87, East Sheen south-west London does not dwell on the thought for long. Ever since his 25-year-old estate agent daughter Suzy disappeared, believed murdered, July 28 1986, he displays stoic dignity even though hers has been one of the most high-profile and enduring cases of a missing person in recent times. Thirty years on, Mr Lamplugh says: “Time passes. You move on. I don’t picture her or daydream about her. Diana and I brought it to an end when we held a press conference at Scotland Yard to announce that we felt we had done all we could to find her. “You can go on to destroy your life and other people’s lives,” he adds. “Take control over your life again, we imagined she would have said, ‘You have done enough,’ while it doesn’t stop you thinking don’t agonise.’ No trace of his daughter was ever found and no one has ever tried or convicted of her murder. He won’t say if he thinks Cannan or anyone else is to blame. “It was a good lead. It may be right, I don’t know. The fact is, she is never going to come back and that is the way it is,” he said. “My grandchildren may know they had an Aunt Susan who mysteriously vanished 30 years ago,” he admits, “but I have never talked to them about it. My wife Diana and I determined the lives of our other children Richard, 57, Tamsin, 54, and Lizzie, 47, would not suffer as a result of our loss. Suzy herself always believed life was for the living. It was one of the last things she said to Diana before she disappeared.Terminally ill Miss Hellyar wants to stay in Newcastle where she has lots of her friends. This terminally ill woman who had hoped to raise £5,000 to pay for her funeral has smashed her target. Shirley Hellyar, 40, from Glasgow, thought she beat cancer travelled to Newcastle to celebrate her 40th birthday this month. However, while visiting friends suffered chest pains and scan revealed condition was terminal. An online fund has raised £5,570 so far. Ms Hellyar is in a hospice in Newcastle with weeks left to live. She was diagnosed with the lymphoblastic lymphoma in 2017 as a tumour detected in her lung. Early September this year, she said the tumour had shrunk and she was well enough to travel to Newcastle where she lived for years and used to work as a sexual health worker. Miss Hellyar is in St Oswald’s Hospice in Newcastle she wants to remain and be close to friends. She said: “The kindness people show so unbelievable reinstated my faith in humanity.” More than 250 people donated to the fund to help her parents Elizabeth and Gordon pay for her funeral and travel costs. Message of support offered to provide services at funeral or places for her family to stay in Newcastle. Val Campbell called it a “tragic situation” so Martin Robson said he was moved to tears. He wrote to Miss Hellyar: “I can’t imagine what you are going through but I wish you love and more. Holding your hand from afar.” If you believe in God you know in year King Uzziah died, Isaiah saw GOD ON HIS Throne in heaven, looks like a MAN in Isaiah 1:1 in Bible. Isaiah’s grief over king’s death made him seek Face of God more than ever before. God’s Comforts through Holy Spirit by lifts above pain sin, sorrow into PRESENCE of the LORD. King David encouraged himself in the LORD in time of adversity and sorrow said he will see his son again in heaven. Grief is occasion people run to God and churches are full when disaster strikes. People recognise the human limitations and need a Saviour so turn to God if in pain. Its best time to maintain Covenant with God consistently not only in good times but in vulnerable times too. Don’t blame God, become angry to denounce or reject God for not preventing death of a loved one. It’s not God’s fault so be realistic about circumstances of life and human decay. The devil comes to steals, kill and destroys but God gives eternal life more abundantly so GOD is still in the Throne despite death of loved ones. Eternal life brings reunion of the family and friends to live forever in eternity into infinity. Temporary loss death is for only a short season in life, compared to joy of believer in Resurrection in Christ to live forever in Jesus Name. GLORY to God though death of a loved one is sad, shocking, makes you feel hopeless and as if life not worth living. It is the worst complex loss pain triggers by memories, music food, other sounds, scents, places etc. Yet possible to MOURN WITH HOPE not give up life in immediate aftermath of death loved one. Hold onto God in Christ by CONFIDENCE in Jesus’ words you will meet again in eternity if you believe. Do not lose hope and ask for help from others to support you in the early days of grief. With God you will overcome in Jesus Name because Jesus conquered death forever in eternal life.
Lindsay, 36, a writer from Kent, and her Australian husband Glen, 38, first tried living without plastic in 2012. It started out as a month-long challenge so turned into a way of life for the pair who live in Perth, Western Australia. “I’m more the driver than him but we got involved at the same time,” she says. “I’m the one that puts in more work but he agrees with all the values.” So going plastic free for their wedding, in 2014, was a no-brainer.Plastic finds way into weddings in many forms of food storage, drink packaging, decorations, flower delivery – that’s just the start. For Lindsay, who blogs about living without waste, trying to make her special day plastic free came first ahead of any other wishes. “We said we want to be plastic free ‘how can we do that,’ rather than saying, ‘We want roses, we want to have canapes, can we do plastic free memorable but not break the bank. Simplicity was key. To me simple means no fuss and devoting whole weekends to projects was out, says Lindsay.Involving suppliers from outset was the most effective way of making a plastic-free event happen, she says. “It’s really about having conversations with people and explaining why you want to do it. People are willing.” But its about taking matters into you own hands. “If you get stuff delivered to you, that’s when it comes in packaging. It was making sure on the day we went to all the deli, the bakery et cetera so we could guarantee there was no packaging.” Eco Wedding Styles done includes recycled materials.
- Invitations: electronic, sent via email or Facebook
- Flowers: freshly picked by family and friends from their gardens, arranged in old jam-jars
- Decorations: borrowed lace bunting from old tablecloths and curtains • tins fished out of recycling bins and wrapped in twine and in hessian ribbon, which was also used for table runners • hired tablecloths and tea cups • bought beeswax candles in jars
- Food: local businesses focused on locally sourced produce • hired pizza oven • cakes from a bakery that didn’t use plastic packaging • Indian snacks donated by a friend as a wedding gift
- Drink: tap beer and cider • local wine • pre-made soft drinks served in jugs • loose tea and coffee • no straws
- Tableware: venue’s own crockery and cutlery (although having pizza minimised amount needed) • borrowed glasses
- Gifts: guests told not to buy presents – to avoid any waste and wrapping
- Dress: rather than spend hours trawling charity shops, the bride bought a High-Street dress she wore again and then sold on eBay
- Hair and make-up: used make-up bride had • washed hair with bicarbonate of soda and vinegar
- Favours/confetti: did without it
Lindsay and Glen married local bowling club in Perth Lindsay accepts achieving a 100% plastic-free wedding also meant relying on other people. For wedding, they hired a pizza oven and used a local deli to provide fresh ingredients without plastic packaging but did they know what went on behind the scenes? “It’s possible some plastic that I didn’t see… whether he got a packet of salad in a plastic bag, I don’t know were counterbalanced by air miles required to fly her family albeit just four people to Australia. “In hindsight, I should have fallen in love with the guy in the village – but I didn’t,” Lindsay jokes. “I fell in love with a guy in Australia, so it’s one of those things you have to compromise. My parents, my sister and brother flying out for a wedding – it’s a one-off.” They did decide to have the wedding as local as possible in the city of Perth, rather than the countryside, to reduce driving distances. How difficult for Eugenie to achieve? Wedding planner Katrina Otter says working with the right people is key, as some of the more “old-school suppliers” are less keen to adapt. “Make sure you have the right team on board, work with a team willing to do it or one where it’s already part of their ethos.” She adds: Bride and groom might not know plastic involved cutlery wrapped in cling film. No royal wedding is complete without a vibrant floral display.Flowers were a big part of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding day And, traditionally, a key part of those has been the floral foam – the bricks of green, spongy foam that provide a foundation for floral arrangements, as well as a water source. Katrina says finding an alternative to the non-biodegradable plastic material has become a big issue for the industry and many florists are looking to do it another way. The florist who created the displays for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding, Philippa Craddock, says she didn’t use any floral foam for their big day. The number of couples requesting plastic-free weddings is on the rise, says Katrina, although it remains a small proportion. Another issue to consider for any bride having live TV coverage is the hair and make-up. Kate Arnell, who blogged about her zero-waste wedding, in 2014, says she found it tricky to find plastic-free make-up and hair products. There are a lot more available and since swapped to plastic-free alternatives she says. Whether Princess Eugenie opts for Lindsay’s bicarbonate of soda, vinegar concoction on hair yet to be confirmed. Eugenie wedding wants plastic free on big day. In addition to venue, food and drink, music, the dress, hair and make-up, a bride’s checklist goes on. And also Princess Eugenie added another factor into equation her wedding to be plastic free. The Queen’s granddaughter, who is marrying Jack Brooksbank on 12 October, told British Vogue the couple’s house was anti-plastic and want our wedding to be like that as well.” So how realistic is it? Lindsay Miles discovered, there are quite a few things to take into consideration. If it is just one day, why bother? “A wedding is such a significant day that it’s even more important to be true to your values than on any other day,” says Lindsay. “You can’t go back on your values just because you’re getting married.”
