Purify Yourselves!

Blood Moons and Solar Eclipses all on the Biblical Holy Days in the next 3.5 years.  This is UNPRECEDENTED!

The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. - Acts 2:20

Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. - Revelation 3:3

It is time for His bride to prepare herself for His coming!

"Put away the foreign gods that are among you, purify yourselves, and change your garments." Genesis 35:2

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. - Titus 2:11-14


Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. - James 4:8


Then Samuel spoke to all the house of Israel, saying, “If you return to the Lord with all your hearts, then put away the foreign gods and the Ashtoreths from among you, and prepare your hearts for the Lord, and serve Him only; and He will deliver you from the hand of the Philistines.” - 1 Samuel 7:3


Major portions of scripture pertaining to end times - Daniel 2,7-12, Matthew 24, 25, 1 Thess 4,5, Revelation.  There are MANY more scriptures as well.  Don't be caught unawares.  Keep your lanterns full of oil!


Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path. - Psalm 119:105

Is Your Worship Sunburned?


Another information packed video from 119 Ministries.  Compared to some of their other videos, I would say this one seems rather rushed at times and at times seems to jump around a bit.  HOWEVER, there is soooooo much information, I can hardly fault them for trying their best to provide it to us without too much delay.  Honestly, this video could be considered a jumping point for a serious and in depth study of religious history.

Sharing My Incomplete Thoughts - Is Daniel Unsealed?

A couple of weeks ago I watched a video.  As I watched my eyes were glued to the screen, my brain SUCKED in the information, and my heart and mind questioned.... 'Could it be true?"

To say the least... this video floored me.

Since that moment I have been reading and reading and praying and reading and reading and praying.  I have contacted a few people who are knowledgeable about scripture as well.  Don't feel bad if I didn't contact you.  I was trying to keep a tight lid on this subject until I felt reasonably sure I wasn't missing some GAPING hole in my research.

I am not done researching.

But I feel I must share the direction of my thoughts with you.  Please understand that I am not sure about this.  I have seriously questioned it and will share my findings fully with you.  But there may be something, or many somethings that I am missing.  So I prayerfully continue and ask that the Ruach Ha'Kodesh, aka The Holy Spirit, lead me, my family and all those whose names are written in the Book of Life to the wisdom of YHWH.

If, after watching the video and reading this entire post, you think I have missed something, PLEASE let me know.  I welcome an honest discussion.

The video is Daniel Unsealed presented by 119 Ministries.






My mind immediately went to


Matthew 24:36
“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.

So I pulled out my interlinear and examined it closely.
http://www.scripture4all.org/OnlineInterlinear/NTpdf/mat24.pdf

And I find it says...
NOT YET

Not yet one man knowing, not yet the messengers....

Could it indeed have been hidden, sealed, closed knowledge???  Until now?


Another friend pointed out that the scripture must be preached in all the world before the time of the end.

So I searched for scriptural references to that and found

http://www.ecclesia.org/truth/mat03.html

This shows strong evidence that the word would be preached through the whole world before the destruction of Jerusalem and was.

"Paul said that the gospel was made known to all nations (Romans 16:25-26). Paul also said that the faith of the Romans was spoken of throughout the whole world (Romans 1:5,8). We know that Paul traveled through Asia Minor, Greece, and Crete; that he was in Italy, and probably in Spain and Gaul (Romans 15:24-28). During this time the other apostles weren't sitting around idle; all the apostles went abroad and preached the gospel to everyone (Acts 8:1-5,14,25); and there is much proof that within thirty years after this prophecy was spoken, churches were established in all these regions (Acts 9:31).
The following verses all fulfil Acts 1:8. Men from every nation heard Peter preach the gospel (Acts 2:5,9-11,14); and Peter said it was published throughout Judaea (Acts 10:37, 1 Pet.4:6). Paul says he fully preached the gospel (Romans 15:19; 16:19), and it appeared to all men (Titus 2:11.), and it was preached and believed on in the world (1 Timothy 3:16). In Romans 10:18, the word "world" is oikumene, same as Mat.24:24, and the word "earth" is ge, same as Acts 1:8. In Romans 16:25-26, the word "nations" is ethnos, same as Mark 13:10. In Colossians 1:6, the word "world" is kosmos, same as Mark 16:15. In Colossians 1:23, the word "creature" is ktisis, same as Mark 16:15. Hebrews 4:2 says the gospel was preached."

Yet another friend has told me they reject this teaching because they believe the Holy Days are calculated incorrectly.  So I delved into research on the biblical calendar and most specifically the definition of the new moon, which is the beginning of the biblical month.

Most who celebrate the biblical Holy Days follow the teaching that the new moon is the SIGHTED moon, as set out by rabbinical tradition.  The makers of the Daniel Unsealed video use the conjunction, NO MOON, as the new moon.  They explain why here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjaClo2TLtI.

This one factor would play a major role since their argument rests on the blood moons and solar eclipses landing on the actual Holy Days.

I agree that this point may indeed be the strongest evidence against this teaching IF they are calculating the Holy Days incorrectly.  However they show strong evidence as to their reasoning on calculating the calendar the way that they have, biblical evidence, not just the traditions of men.

And in 1270 Rabbi Judah Ben Samuels accurately prophesied the Turkish rule, Brittish rule and Jewish Rule over Jerusalem according to the Years of Jubilee.  He also prophesied that on the Feast of Trumpets BEFORE 2017 the Messianic Kingdom would arrive.

http://destination-yisrael.biblesearchers.com/destination-yisrael/2012/12/rabbi-judah-ben-samuels-jubilee-prophecy-gives-the-year-of-the-messiah.html


And even within the Catholic church there is a cryptic prophesy regarding this next and reportedly LAST pope....
http://www.wnd.com/2012/04/will-the-next-pope-be-the-last/
The entire prophesy with each pope's name and information included line by line....
http://www.catholic-pages.com/grabbag/malachy.asp
Note:  they say they do not know how the current pope relates to olives.  But what about this...
http://ivarfjeld.com/2013/02/04/israel-seems-to-have-sold-jerusalem-to-the-vatican/

It has long been theorized that the Papacy is indeed the Beast that will stand up next to the Antichrist.

And...


Lightning Hitting the Basilica

And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.”
Luke 10:18-20

And....

Obama will be arriving in Israel for his first visit March 20th.
http://www.wnd.com/2013/02/revealed-this-is-why-obama-is-visiting-israel/

"Obama will be arriving in Jerusalem on the 10th day of the first month on the Hebraic calendar.
For those who do not connect the date, that is the day Y'shua rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, fulfilling the Torah commandment to inspect the lamb for Passover on the 10th day." - 119 Ministries

Matthew 24:15-16
“Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.


Could these events be what the bible warned about?

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” - Daniel 12:4


I honestly say and share with you..... I don't know for sure.

But we can continue to look for the signs...
And keep your oil and lamps ready. - Matthew 25:1-13

(And, yeah..... verse 13 also says not yet.... http://www.scripture4all.org/OnlineInterlinear/NTpdf/mat25.pdf)

Did He Do The RIGHT Thing?

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jan/23/man-who-shot-dogs-biting-boy-could-face-charges/
"When the man, a neighbor, saw the boy being mauled by the dogs, he went inside his home and got a gun. The man killed one of the dogs. The gunfire attracted the attention of a police officer in the area near Eighth and Sheridan streets, where the attack occurred. The officer responded and shot the other two pit bulls as they continued to attack the boy."

Potential charges for this man now include, unregistered firearm, unregistered ammunition, using firearm beyond his personal property, carrying a pistol without a license.

This man should be heralded for SAVING A LIFE.  But will probably be wrung through the court system, have felony charges stamped on his record and possibly end up doing time.

Welcome to gun control.

The Career of Motherhood

"Every mother loves her children, but not every mother loves motherhood! This is why many mothers feel frustrated and hemmed in. They spend years training for their career and now mothering is a threat to their plans. Of course they love their children, but they reject the career of motherhood!

Dear mother, can I share with you a secret? It's not enough to love your children; you have to love and embrace your career of mothering to enter into the fullness and anointing of all that God intends for you. It is your highest destiny. It is God's plan for you. Why not stop "kicking against the pricks" and enjoy it?

Start right now and say out loud, "I LOVE MY CAREER OF MOTHERHOOD!" Come on now, say it again! "I LOVE BEING A MOTHER!" The more you confess it the more it will become part of you. You are going to become a motherhood lover! You are going to start laughing instead of frowning."

Apparently Where I Belong

"All of us, in long skirts, hair upswept, wore sturdy, serviceable boots on our feet. Each lady, unswervingly feminine, carried a weapon, concealed on her person and all of us daintily climbed into mud encrusted 4 wheel drive vehicles. In the back of each vehicle were multiple gas cans and propane cylinders, a testament to our rugged lifestyles."  Redoubtedly Normal from Paratus Famalia

Shabbat Shalom and Other - Graphics

I just wanted to make some simple graphics and I will gladly share them with any believers who would like to use or share them.




















Happy Purim!

Happy Purim everybody!

Purim comes from the story of Esther, Mordecai and Haman in the Bible.  It is a joyous Holy Day.  It is a reminder that no matter what evil rises against the people of YHWH, He will provide a way for safety and survival.  In this instance there were no 'miracles' used.  But a vast array of coincidences....

Esther 9:20-22
And Mordecai wrote these things and sent letters to all the Jews, near and far, who were in all the provinces of King Ahasuerus, to establish among them that they should celebrate yearly the fourteenth and fifteenth days of the month of Adar, as the days on which the Jews had rest from their enemies, as the month which was turned from sorrow to joy for them, and from mourning to a holiday; that they should make them days of feasting and joy, of sending presents to one another and gifts to the poor.

For our own celebration we have had grandpa visit and tell the story of Esther (he is a GREAT storyteller) and I prepared BBQ Chicken Wings (YUM) and a salad with many veggies and sunflower seeds, and an assortment of many fruits.  Daddy also added Cocoa Puffs for breakfast! LOL  We also made some gifts for our neighbors and will be delivering them today.  Oh yes, and my daughter and I dressed up like Queens.  I MUST remember to get my boys some suitable costumes for next year!

Here is a great video to share with children about the story of Purim.



And now for some fun songs to enjoy on Purim!

Mark Twain on Jews

"If the statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of star dust lost in the blaze of the Milky Way. Properly the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world's list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvellous fight in the world, in all the ages; and has done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it. The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed, and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other peoples have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?" -Mark Twain

For some additional quotes by Mark Twain discussing the Jewish people - http://www.twainquotes.com/Jews.html

I personally never considered it before but... wow.  HAHA!  I just googled it, Jews make up about .2% of the world population.

And Israel's population is around 7 Million. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_population_by_country

And yet... the whole world revolves around her doesn't it.

Please Pray For The Hendersons

Some of my readers are aware that I have been supporting and praying for a family, that we lovingly call 'Clan Henderson'.  My dear friend Erica and her husband Jeff have suffered through almost two years, jumping through hoops, phone calls, emails, filing court documents, court dates and counseling sessions.

Their children too have suffered.  I am so sad to report that these children have been truly abused in their foster homes.  The children have been mocked for and refused their religious rites.  As if that were not enough, the children have been covered in bruises on many occasions and are reporting that they have been in fights with other foster children, suffered inexplicable injuries, and, as my stomach turns, have suffered sexual abuses as well.

My heart cries for these poor babes.  They are so young, so little and so defenseless.  I look at their pictures and see little children that simply need people to love and care for them.

Unfortunately , it doesn't seem to matter to the courts that Jeff and Erica have fulfilled all their court requirements regarding parenting classes, counselling sessions, arbitrary visitation and court schedules, sometimes three court dates in one week.  It doesn't seem to matter that Jeff and Erica have struggled to maintain a home ready for the children at all times.  It doesn't seem to matter that there were no charges for abuse to begin or end with.  For a full review of this story see - http://supportclanhenderson.blogspot.com/p/the-story.html

On Thursday, Jeff and Erica will be returning to court.  It is rumored that the court will rule to terminate parental rights and put the children up for adoption.

I am asking for prayer.

Pray that the court would return the children to these parents who LOVE their children and have never abused them in any manner.  Pray that this family can be reunited and find healing after this ordeal.

If the children are not returned now.... I fear to think of what will happen to them.  Taken from their parents, half of them being too young to retain decent memories of them, torn even from the support of each other and thrown into half a dozen homes, where they have already suffered so much just in these two years. What will happen in the next 18?

How Do You Socialize Your Children?

Fortunately each conversation is not THIS painful.  However it always comes up!  Every single person I have spoken to asks and asks about socialization.  And no matter what I say, they don't 'hear' what I am saying.  And I get to look forward to the same comments from them almost every time the subject of homeschooling comes up.


As I watched this particular video, I considered, "What does it even mean to be 'Socialized'?

We can first look at a few definitions of the word and it's root.

Social: Adjective
Of or relating to society or its organization

Socialize:Verb
Mix socially with others.
Make (someone) behave in a way that is acceptable to their society

Socialism:Noun
A political and economic theory of that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated...
(in Marxist theory) A transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of communism.

What??? You don't think that applies?  You don't think that our Public Schools, which are paid for by the government, using only select teachers who were taught in government accredited schools, and use only curricula accepted by government agencies might have an agenda.... of socialism?

Where else does this ingrained concern come about socialization?  How many who ask us this question even know what they are asking?

How do you teach your child to "CONFORM" and "SUBMIT" to society?

The answer for me is simple.

I don't.

Society has enough conformists and submissive drones.  What we really need out there are some WEIRD, CRAZY, COURAGEOUS, and UNIQUE people who don't think like EVERYONE else!

The Cry Of The Orphans


Remember, O Lord, what has come upon us;
Look, and behold our reproach!
Our inheritance has been turned over to aliens,
And our houses to foreigners.
We have become orphans and waifs,
Our mothers are like widows.
We pay for the water we drink,
And our wood comes at a price.
They pursue at our heels;
We labor and have no rest.
We have given our hand to the Egyptians
And the Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread.
Our fathers sinned and are no more,
But we bear their iniquities.
Servants rule over us;
There is none to deliver us from their hand.
We get our bread at the risk of our lives,
Because of the sword in the wilderness.
Our skin is hot as an oven,
Because of the fever of famine.
They ravished the women in Zion,
The maidens in the cities of Judah.
Princes were hung up by their hands,
And elders were not respected.
Young men ground at the millstones;
Boys staggered under loads of wood.
The elders have ceased gathering at the gate,
And the young men from their music.
The joy of our heart has ceased;
Our dance has turned into mourning.
The crown has fallen from our head.
Woe to us, for we have sinned!
Because of this our heart is faint;
Because of these things our eyes grow dim;
Because of Mount Zion which is desolate,
With foxes walking about on it.
You, O Lord, remain forever;
Your throne from generation to generation.
Why do You forget us forever,
And forsake us for so long a time?
Turn us back to You, O Lord, and we will be restored;
Renew our days as of old,
Unless You have utterly rejected us,
And are very angry with us!

Is The Rapture Biblical?

Many Christians look forward to the hope of being "taken into the clouds" with Jesus.  But is this biblical?  While it is taught as gospel at many churches, I began to doubt this teaching after a friend of mine spoke with me about it.  He said, "So many people are hoping they will be taken.  So many people are putting all their hope that they will not suffer in the tribulation.  How many will fall away if the Rapture doesn't happen?  How many fair weather Christians will be completely shaken and lose faith?  Seems like it would be a simple lie from the enemy to destroy a large segment of those who call themselves followers of Christ."

Below I include the full text of three segments QuietBuck shares.  There may be some repetition between the three sections, but you will see that there are MANY bible verses that we must test this idea of the Rapture against.

***

Many try to make the point of the rapture from using 1 Thessalonians 4. But if we use Strong’s and other passages we realize what the passage is saying.

1 Thessalonians 4:17
Then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them in the clouds,
to meet the Master in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Master.

Clouds G3507
the cloud which led the Israelites in the wilderness

Air G109
the air, particularly the lower and denser air as
distinguished from the higher and rarer air

As we can see clouds does not mean puffy clouds in the sky and air does not mean the upper sky either. This is a repeat of Deuteronomy and Exodus where the Pillar of Fire showed up. Those who are “alive and remain” are those who were gathered into the barn in Matthew 13:30.

Matthew 13:30
Let both grow together until the harvest:
and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers,
Gather ye together first the tares,
and bind them in bundles to burn them:
but gather the wheat into my barn.

Here we clearly read that the tares are gathered first to be burned. So if someone thinks they get to get out first. They have been deceived into the lie of the tares.

AND


To those with itching ears of the rapture fable (2Timothy 4:2-4). The following passages clearly state the righteous, the saints, the meek shall remain, never to be removed.

The Living Word cannot contradict itself. The fairy tale is proven a blatant lie by the Living Word of YHWH, the only truth (Psalm 33:4, Psalm 138:2, John 17:17, 1Thess 2:13).

•Proverbs 10:30
The righteous shall never be removed:
but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.

•Psalm 37:9
For evildoers shall be cut off:
but those that wait upon YHWH,
they shall inherit the earth.

•John 17:15
I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world,
but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

•Matthew 13:30
Let both grow together until the harvest:
and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers,
Gather ye together first the tares,
and bind them in bundles to burn them:
but gather the wheat into my barn.

•Zechariah 13:9
And I will bring the third part through the fire,
and will refine them as silver is refined,
and will try them as gold is tried:
they shall call on my name,
and I will hear them:
I will say, It is my people:
and they shall say, YHWH is my Elohim.

•Psalm 37:11
But the meek shall inherit the earth;
and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

•Matthew 5:5
Blessed are the meek:
for they shall inherit the earth.

•Malachi 4:3
And ye shall tread down the wicked;
for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet
in the day that I shall do this,
saith YHWH of hosts.

•Psalm 37:18
YHWH knoweth the days of the upright:
and their inheritance shall be for ever.

•Proverbs 12:7
The wicked are overthrown, and are not:
but the house of the righteous shall stand.

•Proverbs 29:16
When the wicked are multiplied,
transgression increaseth:
but the righteous shall see their fall.

•Psalm 37:22
For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth;
and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.

•Zephaniah 2:3
Seek ye YHWH,
all ye meek of the earth,
which have wrought his judgment;
seek righteousness, seek meekness:
it may be ye shall be hid in the day of YHWH’s anger.

•Psalm 37:34
Wait on YHWH, and keep his way,
and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land:
when the wicked are cut off,
thou shalt see it.

•Ezekiel 13:18-23
And say, Thus saith the Master YHWH;
Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes,
and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls!
Will ye hunt the souls of my people,
and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?
And will ye pollute me among my people
for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread,
to slay the souls that should not die,
and to save the souls alive that should not live,
by your lying to my people that hear your lies?
Wherefore thus saith the Master YHWH;
Behold, I am against your pillows,
wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly,
and I will tear them from your arms,
and will let the souls go,
even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly.
Your kerchiefs also will I tear,
and deliver my people out of your hand,
and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted;
and ye shall know that I am YHWH.
Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad,
whom I have not made sad;
and strengthened the hands of the wicked,
that he should not return from his wicked way,
by promising him life:
Therefore ye shall see no more vanity,
nor divine divinations:
for I will deliver my people out of your hand:
and ye shall know that I am YHWH.

There are many others as well.

AND


Many go around desiring a rapture, a gathering up stating they leave first.

But does not scripture teach us that those gathered up are the tares? And the tares go first?

•Matthew 13:28-30
He said unto them, An enemy hath done this.
The servants said unto him,
Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
But he said, Nay;
lest while ye gather up the tares,
ye root up also the wheat with them.
Let both grow together until the harvest:
and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers,
Gather ye together first the tares,
and bind them in bundles to burn them:
but gather the wheat into my barn.

•Matthew 13:38-43
The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom;
but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
The enemy that sowed them is the devil;
the harvest is the end of the world;
and the reapers are the angels.
As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire;
so shall it be in the end of this world.
The Son of man shall send forth his angels,
and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend,
and them which do iniquity;
And shall cast them into a furnace of fire:
there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.
Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

•Enoch 69:27
And he sat on the throne of his glory,
And the sum of judgement was given unto the Son of Man,
And he caused the sinners to pass away
and be destroyed from off the face of the earth,
And those who have led the world astray.
(be carefull rapture teachers)

•Psalm 37:9
For evildoers shall be cut off:
but those that wait upon YHWH,
they shall inherit the earth.

•Proverbs 10:30
The righteous shall never be removed:
but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.

Making Candles Today

We use candles quite often.  Most particularly for the Sabbaths.  They fill the house with a warm gentle glow that encourages quietness and peace.  For the most part candles are inexpensive.  But cutting a little here and there from the budget is always a good idea.
And knowing how to make something for yourself is always a great idea!
I just got this double boiler on my local Freecycle.  I highly recommend joining any similar programs in your area.  The woman also had boxes of old half used candles.  She just never got around to using them.  Trust me, I understand!
Before I had the double boiler I would use a large tin can inside of my stock pot.  It did work well.  But the double boiler is very nice too!
Melting the wax down is quite simple.  Boil water in your bottom pot and put pieces of wax in the top pot adding more as it melts.  Carefully pour into your desired containers.  I put a piece of cardboard under my containers.  Last time I did not and spent a ridiculous amount of time scraping wax off my stove top.
Place your wick (I ordered premade ones from amazon, a huge bag of them) in the middle of your container before the wax cools,  I then place a small piece of cardboard with a hole in the middle over the wick to keep it upright in the middle.
It is slow work, melting the wax.  I called it a day after I had six of these cans made into candles.
With a little work these would also make nice gifts, if you only added specific colors of wax (I just threw it all in for these), used pretty containers, add a scent, a ribbon, etc.
This size will burn three or four days straight.  Or many many nights if only used during the dark.

Doctors Kill 2,450% More Than All Gun Related Deaths

Doctors Kill 2,450% More Americans Than All Gun Related Deaths Combined

"How do 700,000 doctors manage to kill 783,936 people each year (that’s over one death per doctor), while 80 million gun owners kill only 31,940?"


This is a great time to point out that word SORCERY in the bible is actually the word PHARMAKEIA - which is basically pharmacology.  Denounced and warned about numerous times in the bible.


Revelation 18:23
The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your PHARMACOLOGY all the nations were deceived.
