amazing-planDon’t give up.

Maybe you have been working on a relationship for several years and it looks like it just won’t get any better. Perhaps a child is going the wrong direction in life or ignoring you. Maybe your spouse doesn’t understand you and causes you grief. Or maybe you are working on a promotion at work and it just seems to be impossible to get it.

Don’t give up, but learn to enjoy life while striving for your goal.

I remember a lady telling me that her husband had ideas for a number of different businesses to start here in the USA. He would start one business and if it didn’t do well after a couple of years he would move on to something else. She said he didn’t have the patience to stick with something until it was successful. The average new business takes five years before it becomes profitable. We help you start a home business.

If you have friends who seem to have a knack for solving relationship problems or career challenges, maybe you feel unlucky, like you are just not blessed in life. But when you compare yourself with what someone claims they have (maybe their claims are overstated) you often get discouraged.

To those of you reading this who have goals and dreams in life that just don’t seem to be possible, just remember, Jesus said that with faith all things are possible. Not only Jesus, but many other successful people said the same thing.

Don’t give up, you will make it.

Abraham Lincoln failed many, many times before becoming president of the United States. Many consider him our best president. Winston Churchill also failed many times and struggled with depression almost constantly before becoming the outstanding leader who guided Great Briton through one of their most dangerous times in history.

When discouraged, there are many things that can get you feeling better. Read or listen to encouraging, motivational books and sermons. Take a walk. It is amazing how much better a person feels after exercise because it releases the “feel-good” chemicals into the bloodstream.

Count your blessings.

Gratitude not only helps you make it through the day with a happier mindset, it also makes you stronger and it certainly makes your prayers more effective. Gratitude is one of the 10260032_733336706703961_741405142712697955_nkey faith lifters, and Jesus said many times that faith is a key to answered prayer.

So if it seems that God is not listening to you, don’t give up. Remember, he loves you more than you love yourself and he is always looking out for you.

Remember, the people Moses led to the Promised Land had to fight sword to sword with giants (or more correctly, they thought they would have to) and you probably never will fight a giant. However, you may have to fight against your impatience. It may take longer than you expect to see success.

Maybe you don’t believe it is true. But stop and think a minute. Jesus said “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Mark 9:23 He also said “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed you can move a mountain. Matthew 17:20.
Henry Ford said “Whether you believe you can or believe you can’t, either way you are right.” That means if you believe you can do something, you will figure out a way to do it. If you don’t believe you can do something, you won’t even try. You are probably skeptical about this. I was when I started.

Street kids

Brad Stanton —  June 12, 2015 — 3 Comments

feeding street kids in the PhilippinesI met Jericho for the first time at Christmas 2013. He was at the orphanage I visited in the Philippines. He was about eleven years old. His mother had dropped him off there a month before I arrived to visit. He didn’t have a father, and apparently his mother felt she just didn’t have the money to care for him. I watched him talking to my mother-in-law. I couldn’t understand the language he spoke, but it was obvious that he felt heartbroken and embarrassed that his mother had left him at the orphanage. I wished I could find his mother and help her find a job so that she could afford to keep him.

As I talked to some of the older orphans who spoke English, I realized how fortunate they were that the orphanage had been built. I had seen kids living on the streets there and it was a sad sight. I just can’t imagine how it would feel to be alone at such a young age. Children are sometimes abandoned and they have to learn how to find food. Some are so desperate that they fall into prostitution.

My mother-in-law (in the photo above) often feeds street kids who wander the neighborhood there. One boy comes to her house often. His father is in jail and his mother spends her time gambling. He sometimes doesn’t have anything to eat during the day so goes to her house and sometimes brings his friend who has no father or mother. Sometimes the meal she gives them is the only food they get all day.

There are children in Wichita, Kansas who don’t get enough to eat. Chances are there are children in your city in the same situation. Some kids have only one parent who might be so addicted that he/she spends all the family money on drugs. The kids can eat at school, but during the Christmas holiday they have nothing to eat. I have friends here who buy food and donate it to the social workers at the schools so that the kids can bring food home during the holidays.

Want to help street kids? There is so much that can be done. You can pray, donate or volunteer. We need people who are willing to spend some time on social media like Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc. to get the word out about this problem. Click here for more information.

world-map-in-retro-style-design-913-2129aIs it possible that the seven year cycle that seems to drive the US stock market and the rise and fall of nations in the last hundred years is the same cycle of the Old Testament given by God?

The seven year cycle of the Old Testament mandates that every seven years the land must rest. Leviticus 25:1-6 says the seventh year will be a Sabbath, solemn year (the Shemitah). The people were told not to plant or harvest anything in the land. It was to remind the people that all they had and all blessings came from God.

The book and DVD “The Mystery of the Shemitah” give insight into this. Jonathan Cahn wrote this New York Times bestseller.

Deuteronomy 15:1-2 says debts shall be released on the 29th of Elul (the Jewish month of Elul) on this year.

Shemitah defined

Shemitah can mean several different things. It meant release of debts, but it also means blessing and judgement. The city of Jerusalem was destroyed, and the Jews were taken into captivity by Babylon on the Shemitah. Jeremiah was told the judgement would last 70 years. This was one year for every Shemitah year that the Jewish people had strayed from God.

So the Shemitah could determine a nations existence or lack of it—the rise and fall of nations.

What would this look like in modern times? It turns out that recessions, depressions and stock market drops follow the seven year cycle of the Shemitah. In the past 40 years every single financial turning point followed this seven year cycle. Not just one but every single year of financial drop was a year of Shemitah. So what happened during these years?

1994: During Shemitah of ‘94, the bond market collapsed. The great bond market massacre of 1994. It was the biggest bond collapse in US history. Not only that, $1.5 trillion was lost worldwide.

1930-1931 The great depression was the year of Biblical Shemitah. The Tishri is the most sacred of Hebrew months. Shemitah begins and ends with month of Tishri. For ages financial analysts could not explain why so much happened in autumn. September to October is the month of Tishri. This was the secret to the financial happenings.

The five greatest stock market crashes in history land on these special dates of the Jewish calendar.

The Rise and Fall of Nations

Shemitah can also mean release, shaking, fall, and collapse. The kingdom of Judah was wiped out during this special time.

1917 was a year of Shemitah. One of oldest empires collapsed that year– Russia. The US Entered WWI in 1917. Three more empires collapsed, the German Empire, the Austro-Hungarian and the Ottoman-Turkish Empire.

This year marked the rise of US becoming a superpower. Britain was deeply in debt to the US due to the war and because of this the financial center of the world departs London and switches to New York.

1938 (Shemitah year) was when Germany began taking over Austria and Czechoslovakia. Japan signed the surrender document Sept 2, 1945 which was a Shemitah year. Sept 7 was when parades celebrated the victory. That is the Jewish month and date of Elul 29 and that is the day that ends the 7 year cycle.

America had became a superpower but in 1973 the US legalized abortion. That same month began long term financial collapse. That same year, a Shemitah year, the US lost the war in Vietnam on August 15th. It suffered its first defeat on the exact same month and day of victory in WWII– August 15, 1945. Japan surrendered on that date.

From 1973, move forward 4 Shemitahs to 2001, the fall of the twin towers in New York City. The 2001 Shemitah, in the last week, brought in 9-11. The fall of the twin towers happened on a Shemitah. Shemitah can mean fall or collapse. That is what the towers did, and to a certain extent, so did the US economy.

In 1945 the World Trade Center was conceived, the idea for building it was first planned. Construction began in 1966 a Shemitah. It took seven years to complete. It was finished and dedicated 1973, another Shemitah year. In the year of Shemtiah 2001 it was destroyed. Just as Shemitah can mean fall, the towers fell to the earth. So is it possible that in that year of 1945 the symbol of US financial power was born, and on 2001 the symbol died?

A nations blessing come from God alone. If a nation drives God out, the blessings will be removed.

The most amazing events

1917 was a Shemitah year, 1918 was year of Jubilee. In the Old Testament, the year of Jubilee was a time of giving back the land to the rightful owners. It was the time of freeing slaves. You can read more about it in the Old Testament, or just Google it. Jubilee happens at the end of every 7th Shemitah year, in other words at the end of 49 years. So what happened in this 1918 Jubilee? The Ottoman Empire was crumbling and gave up control of the land of Israel which they held for over 400 years. Great Britain signed the Balfour Declaration stating the land would be restored to the Jewish people (November 1917) It was the first time in 2000 years that the Jewish people got their land back. What a year of Jubilee it was for the Jewish people!

Ok, so go one more Jubilee later, which would land in the years 1966 and 1967 of our calendar. Remember, all these dates are according to the Jewish calendar, not ours. What significant thing happened during those two years? By ancient Bible prophecy, the Jewish people must be restored not only to their homeland, but also to the holy city of Jerusalem.  In the midst of the Six Day War, the Israeli solders entered Jerusalem and wept at the holiest wall. This was the seventh Shemitah, the Jubilee. They regained their long lost possession on the Jubilee.

The next Shemitah will be September 2015 to September 2016. What will happen? We don’t know, maybe nothing. But if this trend continues, it may bring about war in the Middle East, a war in Israel and a war that brings about prophetic restoration.
