The world’s version of population day is completely different from God’s version of the “VERY GOOD” world HE created in Genesis 1:28 in the Bible. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. Govern and reign over the fish in the sea, birds in sky… with ABUNDANT RESOURCES. God said, be fruitful, multiply and replenish earth but alternative global messages bombards people about over-population birthrate false assumption ideas inciting multicultural racial hatred. Trump leads way pointing accusing fingers at least in society. The global population majority hardly benefits from all God’s over-abundant resources owned by 1% few, while 99% live in abject poverty, barely making it daily in life in this world. All resources belong to God for all but is taken over by the few 1%. A third round exploiting post slavery colonialialism is the OZONE tariffs trade driving ethnic minorities from the forest reserves. And those cultures that preserved the forests and climates for centuries like Amazon, Asia, African etc. globally persecuted or deprived from their homes for palm oil, soya, private animal farm tourism. This crisis has imposed Western industrial emissions key causes of global heating. But blame others by projecting a fear of ‘shortage’ of all the world’s resources on “overpopulation by the racially impure.” To add insult to injury their rubbish and toxic wastes are dumped in such places. The West is not willing to change excess consumption lifestyle that is destroying countries at their expense, as it is not in their backyards. Exploiting resources to build the West and marketing processed their natural resources back to them. Majority don’t enjoy superfluous wealth or the global capita gain of wealthy 1% controlling all resources on earth. Sadly their standard of living improves at the higher cost to environment, toxic plastic waste luxury packagings destroying the majority of the world’s flora and fauna. They patronise those they blame, who earn less than 50 cents a day. And many are sterilised by forced family planning or a one child policy. They are blamed for West’s luxury in society propaganda political platforms there is not enough resources, food, available to share with all. Yet Western societies bury billions of tons of good quality foods and clothing, shoes burnt, materials, goods in perfect conditions thrown away everyday. They claim insurance for “loss” like the slave masters paid for loss of earnings from abolition of slave trade. But slaves not compensated for loss of blood, sweat or lives that build the resources in the rich Western countries luxury enjoyed today.As Malcom X once said, “if not careful perpetrators will play all victims against each other and instilling divide and rule hatred in the down trodden to hate each other. Tyrants point accusing fingers at people deprived, exploited daily by the self-serving greedy. Then blame others for lack of resources they freely enjoy and waste. It is travesty those suffering due to greed are victimized as cause of global overpopulation. So large number of population targeted by individualistic drive to force their own ideas on others by any means and at any imposed cost. Replace the desire to know what is right and what is true but victims hardly live long enough to enjoy lifestyle like them. Calculate the family in upper super rich luxury 1% life’s costs, daily paid for tax payers deprived. You see it’s not size of population but it’s the disproportionate distribution of a lion share of resources taken by 1%. A hundred acre policy to one aristocrat and hundred people put on one acre is minimum land allocated. But blamed lack of land or farmlands to feed families forced off ancestral lands like Ahaz or Jezebel in taking Naboth”s vineyard. Sadly, in God’s plans for mankind a day is coming when HE AS PATENT OWNER TAKES IT ALL BACK. GOD HAS STARTED process, will complete it giving POWER BACK TO JESUS. This is not delusion God is fed up with world PORTRAYING HIM as incapable of providing for people as JEHOVAH JIREH. Humanity failed to live in “VERY GOOD” world God created due to greed. So God is actively demolishing things and will live exclusively with all those willing to abide by HIS standardsSadly God says many people perish for lack of knowledge so this opportunity is being given to all to make wise choices. And nobody brought anything into the world and will take nothing out. Take a look at Tutankhamun’s burial chamber, a pretty good insight of luxury and the futility of mankind to provide for after life. Those golden items didn’t save him to enjoy a lifestyle prepared for in vain. Real after life is already PREPARED FOR BY GOD WITH GOLDEN MANSIONS so no need to worry by taking possessions there. A few rich people’s disastrous life styles has cost millions of lives but one cannot buy God. So remember when millions of climate refugees exploited in a scorched overpopulated nations seek salvation in other shores it is boomerang, caused by the West. But denies their responsibility to protect the exploited people without strength to fight back. God is DEFENDER of defenceless and OWNS all resources so warning the world of things to come. But ONLY GOD KNOWS EXACT DAY OR HOUR OF HIS WRATH. It is written on that day wealth, status or position will not save stated in Bible in Revelations 19:15. Consider others too while causing these devastations in the whole world.Change before its too late so when Jesus Name comes you will not perish but be saved in eternal life. Read the Bible to educate and teach yourself to know and to make informed choice. God’s plan for humanity is, live a VERY GOOD lifestyle on earth. So stop misinforming ignorant replacement followers misleading them to hate people NOT RESPONSIBLE for all the destruction by the greedy few. These world’s goods belong to God the OWNER causing birthpang warnings shaking the earth. Wake up be saved before too late. Micah says, “Woe to all those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds. In the morning they carry it out because it is in their power to do so. And covet fields, seize houses and take them to deprive people of their homes, their inheritance. The LORD says: “I AM planning disaster against those people, they cannot save themselves, no longer walk proudly for its time of calamity in Micah 1–3. God says if people repent and call HIS NAME ADONAI JEHOVAH NISSI in Jesus Name, HE WILL hear prayer, forgive and heal the land. So mankind needs to stop the self-destruction victim of own success to seek God’s original VERY GOOD earth supplied with more than all resources provided for Adam and Eve. Greedy desire for more than enough rich resources God provided continues DNA of sinful selfishness. So Jesus will take over all world powers incapable of ruling. The KING OF Kings and LORD of lords Jesus will take over all God’s Kingdom and Rule from Israel at Jerusalem. Material possession must not cause you to gain the whole world to lose your soul. GOD LOVES more than you know and provides equally for all.
For me ‘to live is Christ’ Philippians 1:21 is central focus of the Christian life. This statement points directly to Christ at the heart of the Gospel Message to Churches in Christ. To be like Jesus all through life journey from earth to Glory was Paul’s encouragement to the believers is, focus more on Jesus. First and foremost, “First Love” Christ in Revelations 2:4-5 says be “hot” in Christ for first love of Christian is Love is First for Christ. Our love must be expressed with passion actively seen as living sermon with personal intimate relationship with God in Christ Jesus. In Christ we live, move and have our being as Acts 17:28 says. God’s offspring joint-heirs with Christ First Born of Creation is to reflect Christ in the believer’s life. So set apart for God as a peculiar people saved by God’s Grace desperately need Saviour as anchor of hope secured only to Christ Master Captain of our life ship. Good success, spiritually or emotionally and physically requires a complete faith in God. Trust Jesus is with us always to end of the age as citizens of heaven, in the world but not of the world. So Paul preached the SACRIFICE of Jesus’ Blood to save people from all walks and ranks of life. Encourages us, “To live is Christ” by imitating Example of Christ, to do as Jesus did. Christian believers are to be like Jesus like Paul did, the Church is to follow the Godly Example of Jesus. Paul followed the Example of Christ in 1 Corinthians 11:1 shares Gospel Message of Jesus in living history to save people in the Kingdom of God. So “To live is Christ” is the daily pursue knowledge of Christ to get to know Christ better as a personal Friend. To understand Christ and know POWER of Resurrection of Christ in our heart as the focus of our goals and desires. Love of Christ is at center of our mind, heart, body and soul to live for Christ’s Glory. Christ is more precious, priceless, worth more than gold, silver, ruby, diamonds. Fixing our eyes on Christ is above all the things to run the race to win the prize to lay aside the entangling sin and worldly distractions. To fix eyes on Christ Jesus in Hebrews 12:1-2 means our life makes things of the world grow strangely dim.22 In Athens, Paul stood on the Mars hill and said, ‘Men of Athens I see that in all things you are too superstitious. 23 As I passed by and saw your devotion to the altar with inscription, ‘To An Unknown God,’ you worship, HIM I declare to you. 24 God made the world and all things in it as LORD of heaven and earth, dwells not in temples made with hands. 25 And worshipped by mankind, God Almighty gives life breath to all things. 26 And HE made of one blood all nations to dwell on all the face of the earth, determines the times appointed and boundaries of their habitation. 27 That all should seek the LORD and find HIM although seems far from us. 28 For in him we live, and move and have our being; as your poets said, we are HIS offsprings. 29 Children of God do not think of the Godhead like gold, silver, stone graven by art as man devices. 30 The times of ignorance God overlooked in past now commands all people to repent. 31 God appointed a day HE will judge the world in righteousness by the man Jesus Christ HE ordained and gave the assurance HE raised Jesus from death. 32 When they heard of resurrection of the dead some mocked and others said, “We will hear you again on this matter. 33 Paul left the city but 34 certain men held onto his teaching and believed and among them, Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris and others with them. “To live is Christ” is the essential lifeline of Christian faith on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Christ is the ONLY Saviour who rise from death and so His grave is empty unlike all religions. Jesus Reigns and lives in heaven. Christ is the Only person to OVERCOME death in history to gives Christians the assurance of life after death. Eternal life is guaranteed by Jesus’ Resurrection to believers in Christ to live in heaven. The participation in the Resurrection of Christ from death in Philippians 3:10-11 means “To live is Christ” to gain an eternal life in heaven. So Paul understands having Jesus Christ has superseded all his material things in life. Paul’s testimony, since saved, ‘is to gain’ knowledge in Jesus Christ his Lord who for His sake lost things considered garbage. Paul gained Christ so found in Lord Jesus the promise of Eternal life in Philippians 3:7-9. Paul knew Lord Jesus in Mark 10:29-30 says sacrifice for Jesus’ sake will be repaid in the hundredfold. Paul preached Christ’s Resurrection, “To live is Christ” and to proclaim a Gospel Message of Christ Toured synagogues, the seaside resorts, prisons was apostle and tent maker. Paul’s constant message was Jesus Christ and Him crucified, in 1 Corinthians 2:2. Paul shared the Gospel Message of Christ’s Blood sacrifice to all people in walks and ranks of life kings, included the soldiers, statesmen, priests, philosophers, Jews, Gentile, wo/men. To Paul, to live is Christ and to die is gain to share joys of heaven central to Christian life. Paul looked forward to seeing Jesus Christ after his conversion but advances knowledge of Gospel to Church of Christ to bring Glory to Jesus Christ. He wrote many books in the New Testament and preached to all who listened. “To live is Christ” is live in Christ for Christ on the earth and in eternal life. The Rapture of Jesus and His Second Coming millennial Reign in Jerusalem is assured optimism and eternal hope of Christian believers.
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.
When did the clocks go back?
This year’s clocks go back early hours of Sunday October 28; at 2am, UK reverts to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) by goes back one hour, to 1am. This marks the official end of British summertime. A clever way to remember hour-change is “Spring forward, Fall back.” Relish extra 60 minutes in bed so mornings will be lighter for now, at least but the evenings will be darker. The event means making plans for the day despite prevalence of smartphones and other devices to alter time automatically, there is always one person who didn’t get the message.
When infernal darkness ends?
We won’t see lighter nights again until Sunday March 31st 2019, when clocks will wind forward at 1am and British Summer Time begins.
How dark UK gets in winter?
In the UK the maximum 16 hours and 50 minutes of daylight falls on longest day in June known as summer solstice. On shortest day, Thursday December 21, this dwindles to seven hours and 49 minutes when the sun rises at 8:03am and sets at 3:53pm in London.
Daylight Saving Idea Origin?
Edwardian builder William Willett introduced the idea of British Summer Time, also known as Daylight Saving Time, in 1907. Willett is a great-great-grandfather of Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin. A keen supporter of the outdoors, he noticed that during the summer people were still asleep when the sun had risen and wanted to stop Brits from wasting valuable daylight hours. Clocks were set to the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) meaning light by 3am and dark at 9pm midsummer. So Willett published pamphlet called ‘The Waste of Daylight‘ to get people out of bed earlier by changing the nation’s clocks, arguing it will improve health and happiness so save country £2.5 million. He proposed the clocks be advanced by 80 minutes in four incremental steps during April and reversed same way during September. His idea was ridiculed and the Daylight Saving Bill got nowhere in Parliament but introduced in 1909. Willett, was not deterred. He spent the rest of his life trying to convince people his scheme was a good one. Sadly, he died of the flu in 1915 at the age of 58; a year before Germany adopted his clock-changing plan on April 30, 1916 when clocks were put forward at 11pm. Britain followed a month later on May 21 and Belgium, Denmark, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, and Turkey all followed. William Willett laid outserious proposition for daylight saving scheme. Britain and Germany had been fighting each other in the First World War (1914-18), and a system that could take pressure off economy and conserve fuel worth trying. So Summer Time Act of 1916 was quickly passed by Parliament and the first day of British Summer Time, 21 May 1916, was widely reported in the press. Back then hands on some clocks can’t turn back without breaking mechanism. Owners put the clock forward by 11 hours as Summer Time came to an end on 1 October 1916.
The Home Office put out special posters telling people how to reset their clocks to GMT and national newspapers also gave advice. Willett, died at his home near Bromley in Kent, commemorated for his efforts by a memorial sundial in nearby Petts Wood, set permanently to Daylight Saving Time. The Daylight Inn in Petts Wood is named in his honour and there’s a road there called Willett Way. Willett wasn’t alone in realising the potential of utilising wasted daylight hours. As far back as 1784, Benjamin Franklin, one of America’s Founding Fathers, wrote a letter to the Journal of Paris making fun of fact people sleeping through daylight and burning candles and fuel for light at night. Franklin even suggested tax on shuttered windows or public alarm clocks to solve problem.
Time difference of one hour?
Today clocks are almost always set one hour back or ahead, but in history there were several variations, half adjustment (30 minutes) or double adjustment (two hours), adjustments of 20 or 40 minutes used. A two-hour adjustment was used in several countries during 1940s and elsewhere at times. A half adjustment is used in New Zealand in the first half of the 20th century. Australia’s Lord Howe Island (UTC+10:30) of DST schedule in which clocks are moved 30 minutes forward to UTC+11, which is Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT) during DST. In 1940 during the Second World War, the clocks in Britain were not put back by an hour at the end of Summer Time. Years, later clocks continued to be advanced by one hour each spring and put back by an hour each autumn until July 1945. During summers Britain was two hours ahead of GMT and operating on British Double Summer Time (BDST). The clocks were brought back in line with GMT at the end of summer in 1945. In 1947, due to fuel shortages, clocks were advanced by one hour on two occasions during the spring, and put back by one hour on two occasions during the autumn, means that Britain was back on BDST during that summer.
Ditching Daylight Saving Time?
Those who want change say it’s not clear if any energy savings are made, while there are also potential health risks. Critics claim the darker mornings are dangerous for children walking to school and the energy saving argument may be invalid if people switch on fans and air-conditioning units during the lighter, warmer evenings. But unlikely to bother people in the UK. In 2011, Tory MP Rebecca Harris floated a bill calling for year-round daylight savings but failed to complete passage through Parliament before the end of the session and was dropped. A YouGov poll same year found 53pc of Britons supported moving clocks an hour permanently while 32pc opposed the change. The proposals were met less warmly by the Scottish population; Alex Salmond called campaign to “plunge Scotland to morning darkness” and SNP colleague MP Angus MacNeil said any change has “massive implications for the safety and wellbeing of everyone living north of Manchester. “It is no secret Tories in the south want to leave Scotland in darkness but fixing clocks to British summertime means the dawn wouldn’t break in Scotland until nearly 9am,” he said. He had a point. Following a 1968 to 1971 trial, BST employed all year round northern Scotland saw a net increase in the number of people killed or seriously injured. The sun wouldn’t rise fully until 10am in parts of Scotland and the country’s 1,000-or-so dairy farmers, who wake up before 5am, would have to work for hours in the dark. Other farmers and construction workers, who need sunlight to perform their jobs, would end up having to work later into the evening. Some folks keen to reach a compromise have suggested the clocks change at Hadrian’s Wall and not at Calais. Philip Broom writing on the National Farmer’s Union website in 2011 said: “A definite no. Combining will not start until midday and then have to go on until 11 o’clock. Our day is long enough now.” ‘A Thomas’ writing on the NFU site, was worried “younger people having loud parties or barbecues in gardens and youths hanging around on streets make itnightmare for people getting up for work early mornings.”
A massive wind-up for some…
Spare a thought for the staff of the Royal Collection. They spend over 50 hours adjusting over 1000 clocks spread across the official residences of The Queen. Following months of planning, staff at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh start work in the early hours of the morning to ensure that the time is set accurately. There are 379 timepieces at Windsor Castle, 500 at Buckingham Palace and 80 at the Palace of Holyroodhouse including organ clocks, astronomical clocks, musical clocks and mechanical clocks.
Why keep Daylight Saving Time
There have been various trials over the decades from double summer time (GMT + 2 hours) during Second World War to permanent British Summer Time (GMT + 1 hour) during late 1960s but the current system of changing the clocks at the end of March and October has been in place since 1972. Those in favour say that it would reduce traffic accidents, save energy, boost tourism and encourage more people to exercise outdoors. In the 1980s, the golf industry estimated one extra month of daylight savings could generate up to $400 million (£246.6 million) a year in extra sales and fees. Daylight Savings Time “affects everything from terrorism to the attendance at London music halls, voter turnout to street crime, gardening to profits of radio stations,” said David Prerau, author of Saving the Daylight: Why We Put the Clocks Forward. This debate stretches years into the past, and the future of British time is still unclear.
Sandringham Time GMT/30mins
Added complication for Royal servants between the years 1901 to 1936 was the concept of ‘Sandringham Time’ which was introduced in by Albert, Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII. A keen fan of shooting, he wanted to make the most of winter daylight, so he ordered all clocks on the estate to be set half an hour fast. The tradition was continued by King George V after he acceded to the throne in 1925 but King Edward VIII abolished it in 1936 shortly before his abdication Sandringham House
Coping With The Time Changes
- When the clocks first go back, mornings are lighter so ensure bedrooms are kept dark with blinds or curtains.
- Alter bedtime by around 10 minutes over a few days beforehand to adjust to the new time.
- Maintain bedtime routines. Get ready for bed in the same order e.g pyjamas on, tooth brushing, bedtime story.
- Turn off all screens at least an hour before bedtime.
- Offer a milky, warm drink to encourage sleepiness and avoid stimulating food and drink just before sleep.
- Make sure all the clocks are correct.
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 the 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.

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.

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, where she wants to remain and be close to friends. She said: “The kindness people show is unbelievable so has reinstated my faith in humanity.” More than 250 people donated to the fund to help her parents Elizabeth and Gordon pay for her funeral, as well as 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 that in year King Uzziah died, Isaiah saw GOD Sitting ON HIS Throne in heaven, looking like a man in Isaiah 1:1 in Bible. Isaiah’s grief over the king’s death made him seek Face of God more than ever before. GOD Comforts people through Holy Spirit comforter so lifted above sin and sorrow into PRESENCE of the LORD. And King David encouraged himself in the LORD in time of adversity and sorrow. Grief is an occasion people run to God, churches are full if disaster strikes. People recognise their human limitations and need a Saviour so turn to God in pain. Its best time to maintain Covenant with God consistently not only in good times but vulnerable times too. Do not blame God and become angry to denounce 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. A temporary loss by death is for only a short season in life, compared with joy believer have in Resurrection in Christ to live forever in Jesus Name. GLORY to God.

Benson Idahosa came out and waved at pilot frantically. The plane stopped and steps lowered so pilot came down to know what the issue was. Idahosa said “I have God’s servants who must go to Lagos.”And Captain said “we are loaded to capacity all seats full.” Idahosa said, “Never mind. Let me on board. They all know me through ‘Redemption Hour TV Idahosa’s program. Let me talk to them” so Idahosa climbed onto the plane and walked down the crowded aisles prayed silently as he returned to the front. He turned round facing the passengers and started “Excuse me friends, I have God’s two special servants in my car going to Lagos today on this plane. Two of you get off so God’s servants can board. God will bless you, he waited a minute, no one moved but seemed praying Idahosa slowly walked aisle again, approached the rear, a young man rose from the back of plane and asked person sitting next to him to get up. Idahosa pointing, said you can go tomorrow, travel later. They both gathered their belonging and proceeded from plane. Benson Idahosa stopped the first man in in the aisle of plane. He asked him “young man, what is your name and what do you do?” My name is Aliko Dangote and my assistant the young man replied. “I am a trader, a businessman impressed Benson Idahosa responded, “The World will get up for you” Christian passengers responded “Amen.” My God will bless you! God will take you and your business beyond Africa and bless you beyond measure.” Before descending the steps, Idahosa turned and raised his hands with tears in his eyes, praised the Lord and blessed the remaining passengers for their patience. As all spontaneously clapped, he said see you on ‘Redemption Hour’ on Sunday. T.L and Daisy Osborn boarded plane for their next flights. God blesses the obedient to eat the good of the land says. Isaiah 1:19 says helping others makes God Help you. Indeed, the world stands up for Aliko Dangote Nigerian Billionaire($16.3Bn networth) presently the 23rd richest in the world and the richest in Africa. He flies one of the best jets in the country. So believe in the LORD GOD to Establish you, believe his Prophets to prosper according to 2 Chronicles 20:20. Dangote employs over 11,000 people, excluding contrators and the vendors, businesses that depend on Dangote to thrive. A humble man, above all God blesses anyone in any country of the world because God is not respector of persons so not biased exclusively to only a selected privileged few. The most interesting part of this true living story is that the Christian Prophet blessed the Muslim man and his assistant willing to honour God’s WORDS through Benson Idahosa HIS servant now passed to be with the LORD in Glory.
All was well for Alhaji Kassim Ajisebata. Business was booming, prospects were looming and he had friends in high places. He was a well-known business man in Kaduna, Nigeria, well established and wealthy. But these good times ended all too soon as his life took a tragic twist. His business collapsed and his close associates flee. Having lost everything he had labored for, he found himself moving from one spiritualist to another, desperate for a way out. The ‘way out’ they offered him came in the form of charms and mysterious items. In one extreme desperation, he was taken to a stream and taught some diabolical incantations. He was also given various evil items supposedly to restore his fortunes but he discovered that they did the absolute opposite. The items included pots with sand inside, black soap, a sponge, oil and other strange substances. He was also given a cloth from the graveyard which he was told to keep under his pillow. These practices isolated him from normal life. His friends became the dead and his comfort was the graveyard. Both day and night, he would be tormented by dead people, following him and hunting him down. He was a dead man living. With his body plagued with sickness, he began in earnest to seek for deliverance. One night in a dream, he saw many elderly people coming towards him and then he heard a voice say, “Go to Prophet T.B. Joshua”. At that instant, he woke up and determined to visit The SCOAN. Alhaji Kassim Ajisebata Sitting in The SCOAN Sunday Service the previous week, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua pointed him out, prophesying that he had some mysterious objects in his house. Confirming the prophecy, he declared that it was 100 percent accurate. He went back home and returned last Sunday with his diabolical items. He displayed the mysterious diabolical items before the children of God, exposing what he had previously hidden, even from his own wife. Emphasizing that these items are now rendered powerless, Alhaji Kassim Ajisebata spoke of the freedom he had received in spirit, soul and body after receiving the prophecy. Now, he no longer has nightmares or sees dead people. He has peace and rest of mind and is free from diabetes and many other afflictions that had turned his body into an altar of sicknesses. He advised people to run to God and not away from Him. Short of words to express her joy at the freedom that has now taken over her once fetish home, his wife thanked God for delivering the family.
