As Many People Have Died From The Covid 19 Vaccines As From All Vaccines In The Last 20 Years Combined

I firmly believe the numbers have reached the point where we now have as many people who have died from the vaccines as have died from covid.

That is my personal opinion. But it's not without merit. I don't believe it is.

Dr. McCollough is a world-renowned cardiologist and virologist. He has well over 45 peer-reviewed papers to his name, and is one of the most widely respected specialists in the world.

At least, he was one of the most respected specialists in medicine until he started speaking out against the vaccines. But money and power take a lot of low blows at people.

Check out THIS VIDEO from Dr. McCollough.


The Epoch Times summarized Dr. McCullough’s answer this way:

Though it may seem counterintuitive, Dr. McCullough said that sudden deaths that happen during sleep are biochemically similar to the sudden deaths during or just after vigorous exercise.
The reason people die seemingly inexplicably in their sleep, Dr. McCullough explained, is sometimes because of a surge in catecholamines during the end of the sleep cycle. This natural biochemical change is the body’s signal to wake up.
These catecholamines can increase our heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing rate, among other things. A surge in catecholamines, whether it happens during sleep or during exercise, can stress the heart and cause it to beat arrhythmically, and if a young person’s heart has been damaged by an infection, vaccination, or for any other reason, the surge of catecholamines can be lethal. This is the reason, McCullough said, that people seem to die in their sleep. They’re really dying just before dawn.

Aloe Vera – Effects on Blood Glucose and Benefits

Aloe Vera for blood sugar management?

According to an article in Principia Scientifica, there are a number of studies that show Aloe Vera is good for managing blood glucose levels.

From the article:

  • In a 1999 study, researchers indicated that oral aloe vera “might be a useful adjunct for lowering blood glucose in diabetic patients.” Since then, experts have continued to explore aloe vera’s use in managing blood glucose and diabetes. Thus far, some of their findings include the following:
  • In a study involving 90 individuals with non-insulin-dependent diabetes, the participants were given either no treatment (controls), 100 mg of aloe vera gel powder, or 200 mg of the powder daily for three months. The authors noted a significant drop in fasting blood glucose levels and post-prandial glucose levels in the groups that received aloe vera but not in the controls. The participants in the aloe vera groups also saw a significant reduction in total cholesterol, triglycerides, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and very low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and a significant increase in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. Blood pressure declined significantly in the aloe vera groups but only slightly in the controls.
  • In a 2013 animal study, aloe vera extract was administered to diabetic rats. The extract significantly reduced glucose levels while also significantly increasing serum insulin levels.
  • In a systemic review and meta-analysis that involved eight trials (470 patients) with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, the researchers found that the use of aloe vera significantly improved fasting plasma glucose levels in people with prediabetes. For those with Type 2 diabetes, aloe vera may improve glycemic control and significantly improve hemoglobin A1c levels.
  • A 2022 study looked at the impact of aloe vera on dyslipidemia (elevated triglycerides, decreased high-density lipoprotein [good] cholesterol, elevated small dense low-density lipoprotein [bad] cholesterol) in individuals with Type 2 diabetes. The authors noted that oral aloe vera may help improve blood glucose stability and the metabolism of lipids.

Aloe Vera is a "wonder drug" in many respects besides the benefits for managing blood sugar.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are other benefits to drinking aloe vera juice:

  • it can clear acne;
  • it can keep you  regular (relieve constipation);
  • it can reduce heartburn;
  • it is good for your eyes;
  • it is a good boost for vitamin C.

If you are concerned about managing your blood glucose levels, there are supplements on the market that help with that.

Glucoberry and Gluconate are two products on the market that are specifically designed to lower your blood glucose levels. Check them out if you're having issues in that department.

Principia Scientifica is an interesting site with some good finds. It generally passes Cogny's "smell test." Read more here: https://thecognitiveman.com/health/aloe-vera-effects-on-blood-glucose-and-benefits/

The Obedient Yes That Changes History

 


When God is beckoning to you and there are specifics to the
call, you can know that your obedient ‘yes’ to God will lead to outcomes that
actually change the course of history. Your story will be changed and so will
those that God gives you to serve.

 

Later in Corinth, Paul would address the whole problem of
people who thought that personal might and power were essential to God’s work.
By comparing themselves to others, much of the church was missing out on the
importance of their own high calling to be on mission with Jesus.


 

1 Corinthians 1:

26 Brothers
and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were
wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble
birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to
shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God
chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things
that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one
may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in
Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness,
holiness, and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let
the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”

 

 

How can you be so sure that you are the wrong person for
God’s purposes? Can we not see that our own sense of inadequacy is gold to God?
How else can God receive the glory He deserves if we think that we are the ones
that should get the attention?

 

You may not like the sound of your own voice, but who is to
say that God might not want to train you in His choir? Are you teachable and
can you learn to listen?

 

I always tell those that sing with me in worship, you need
to get comfortable with the voice God has given you and learn to enjoy hearing
yourself use it. That requires humility and an appreciation for the opportunity
to make a clear presentation. You cannot shyly sing and hope no-one is
listening.

Sorry Not Me

 


It’s not like Moses was in a crowd of willing participants
and bowing out in a show of false humility. He was alone with God at the
burning bush and being very specifically asked to respond to God’s call. God
could not be any more personal in specific. So, how does Moses reply?

 

 

Exodus 4:

13 But
Moses said, “Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.”

 

 

Moses’ fifth excuse was to respectfully decline. He used his
manners, but his heart was giving a flat out ‘no’. How many times can God ask,
and a person reluctantly bow out? Moses makes me realize that God can ask us to
do difficult things and it’s in our human nature to resist. Compare this to
Isaiah’s response, ‘Here am I. Lord, send me.’

 

What would it take for Moses to have a change of heart?

 

 

Exodus 4:

14 Then
the Lord’s anger burned against Moses, and he said, “What about your brother,
Aaron the Levite? I know he can speak well. He is already on his way to meet
you, and he will be glad to see you. 15 You shall speak to him
and put words in his mouth; I will help both of you speak and will teach you
what to do. 16 He will speak to the people for you, and it will
be as if he were your mouth and as if you were God to him. 17 But
take this staff in your hand so you can perform the signs with it.”

 

 

Have you ever had a disagreement with someone and gave every
reason to support your position until the conversation had been exhausted?
Then, when it’s over you realize that the other party was right and that you
had difficulty accepting the inevitable.

 

Finally, after God reiterated the call and gave every
accommodation to help Moses see the validity, Moses went home to his
father-in-law and announced that he had to go to Egypt to see if any of his
relatives were still alive. Moses’ will, is slowly bending toward God but he
cannot fully admit yet that God is right. That would have to come later.

 

When God is calling, he wants to answer all of your
objections and give you assurance of His direction. It may come in the form of
providing you with people that will assist, miracles of provision and open
doors, and a way that you can respond.

Me No Talk Good

 


It seems that Moses was shy and self-conscious. He had a
difficult time communicating with people and defaulted to doing things himself
instead of inviting others to be part of his team. We see this later when he is
trying to be the only one to settle disputes in Israel. It would be his
father-in-law that gives him insight to create a team of listeners to settle
matters.

 

 

Exodus 4:

10 Moses
said to the Lord, “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent,
neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of
speech and tongue.”

11 The
Lord said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or
mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord? 12 Now
go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.”

 

 

What if my friend Ken had decided that his communication
struggles excluded him from God’s call? Instead of rebuttal and dismissing the
call, Ken received the call and prepared his heart to learn new things.

 

Moses did not believe that he could be eloquent or
quick-witted in responding to the Pharaoh. One more reluctant excuse to the God
who asks.

I’m Just Not Believable


 

In spite of God’s assurance, Moses has an exhaustive list of
excuses. The third expression of reluctance centres around his doubt that
people will believe him. What he needed to learn was that it was a partnership
with the God who performs signs and wonders. If Moses would take care of his
obedience, God would take care of the miracles.

 

 

Exodus 4:

Moses answered, “What
if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, ‘The Lord did not appear to
you’?”

Then
the Lord said to him, “What is that in your hand?”

“A staff,” he replied.

The
Lord said, “Throw it on the ground.”

Moses threw it on the ground,
and it became a snake, and he ran from it. Then the Lord said
to him, “Reach out your hand and take it by the tail.” So, Moses reached out
and took hold of the snake and it turned back into a staff in his hand. “This,”
said the Lord, “is so that they may believe that the Lord, the God of their
fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has appeared
to you.”

 

 

Like Moses we may put too much stock in human persuasiveness
and talent. When we do, we may be taking attention away from what God wants to
do to reveal Himself.

 

Then, when God does a miraculous sign, Moses runs away from
it. He is freaked out initially by God’s demonstration of power to transform.

Why Would Anyone Listen To Me?

 


Ken Desmarais was one of the first people at New Song Church
to make a clear decision to become Jesus’ disciple. He had no history with the
Lord prior and as he began to encounter Jesus, he was convinced to follow Him.

 

He would begin dating Leigh-Ann Lachine and they would
marry. They began having a family and got involved in serving at the church. In
those early years, we ran a series of elective courses that people could take
on a Sunday.

 

I asked Ken if he wanted to teach a class and he agreed
without any prior experience. As I sat in his teaching, he had a difficult time
getting to his point and mumbled a lot. His voice would trail off, he would
clear his throat and talk without a clear direction.

 

I remember sitting listening to him teach and felt the
strangest notion that I later shared with him. “Ken, have you ever thought
about taking Bible College courses and become a pastor?”
There was nothing
in his presentation that would suggest that he should do that, but I was
listening to what God was saying about him.

 

“Actually, I have been thinking about that. It’s strange
that you would say that.”

 

I went on to encourage him to respond to God’s call and he
did so. Today he pastors a church in Mactier, Ontario and speaks with authority
and confidence. God’s call in your life includes seeing things that you cannot.
The character of Jesus being formed in Ken spoke louder than the skills he had
yet to develop. Ken could go anywhere now and be God’s choice servant. He became confident and eloquent with practice.

 

If you doubt God’s choice of you, you will anticipate how
people will respond to your leadership. You will project your own insecurity
upon those that you are called to. Why would anyone listen to me? That is the
second excuse that Moses demonstrates.

 

You may recognize that something is taking shape inside you
toward a particular mission, but how do you know that it is not your own
insecurity trying to find some heroic significance? That’s a good question to
ponder.

 

You do not want to embark on some mission and hope that God
is in it. You want to know who is asking you to do this. And if you want that
certainty, what will you say to people that ask you why you’re doing this?

 

 

Exodus 3:

13 Moses
said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your
fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what
shall I tell them?”

14 God
said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I
am’
has sent me to you.”

 

 

If you are going to invoke the name of the God of your
fathers, they need to know that it is really Him. Up to this point, God has not
given Moses His Name. The response to Moses is to self-identify as ‘I Am’.

 

Who is God?’ people ask. ‘I Am’ is the reply. This
God is personal. It is in your obedience and alliance with God that people must
determine what God is doing through your relationship to them.

I Am Nobody Special

 


Moses is the classic example of someone called by God that
has every excuse to prevent him from obedience to the call. Instead of a call
and response, Moses demonstrates a call and rebuttal.

 

We are going to look at five excuses that the copycats of
Moses still use to this day.

 

Moses started off with all the best opportunities and
privileges to be a national leader. He was raised in Pharaoh’s house and would
have all the educational opportunities and hand ups to be a prominent man.

 

God will often prepare us to serve by setting us apart from
the most likely to succeed, though. Moses’ ethnicity as an Israelite would
always give him ‘the other’ status and the biases associated with his
people.

 

I have often met people that realized the call of God in
their life but struggled with their sense of otherness.

 

 

Exodus 3:

11 But
Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the
Israelites out of Egypt?”

 

 

Much reluctance is associated with the call of God when
people assume that they are nobody special. I do not have an active
relationship with those that I am called to, and past experiences have shown me
that I do not have influence. This is the first excuse – I am nobody special.

 

Moses’ had a major life failure when he murdered an Egyptian
that was beating a Jewish slave. In turn, he had to leave and become an exile
in a faraway place without privilege or notoriety. In the wilderness far from
Egypt and far from people, God would call Moses through the sign of a burning
bush.

 

Moses heard the call and gave his first rebuttal. Who am I
to go to Pharaoh and lead Israel out of Egypt? Responding to God’s call meant
responding to his own broken relationship with Pharaoh.

 

A person’s past failures seem like good reasons to question
God’s choice in calling them. What we may easily miss is that God’s calling for
you will have you process the past reasons you could not get involved.

 

Answering ‘yes’ to God is to answer the question, “Who am
I?” You know your weakness and you will learn to trust in God’s strength and
accept the identity that he places on you.

Singing With Imperfect Voices


I entered into full-time ministry as a youth pastor in 1985.
I was invited to be the first youth pastor of a church outside Ottawa. Parkway
Road Pentecostal Church was on the outskirts of the village of Greely and not
far from Metcalfe. Clearly this was a little country church.

 

The pastor who brought me on was a Maritimer from Boom Road,
New Brunswick. Not only was I coming to work in the church, but I was also
moving in with his family next door to the church. His name was Clair Mullen,
and he was a firecracker. I have so many good memories of him.

 

Of note were the times when he would lead the singing on
Sunday. There were others that were more capable, but he loved to sing even
though he was off key in a most dramatic way.

 

What he didn’t have in pitch, he made up for with woo. Like
an old-time Pentecostal he would speed up and slow down, bend his notes and add
particular emphasis to the words. I think everyone knew that his singing was
imperfect, but you couldn’t doubt his enthusiasm and encouragement for us to
join in. Maybe that gave other imperfect voices the freedom to sing from the
heart.

 

From the starting point of weakness, God will teach and grow
his people to be useful in his hands. God’s music is not limited to cultural
standards of beauty and performance. It is the language of the heart, and he is
the genius arranger that creates pleasure from unlikely sources. Often God will
use a person’s weakness to demonstrate his strength.

 

In the Christian life, there is a particular call and
response. God is the caller, and we are the responders. We listen to God’s
voice and reply with an echo, an answer, or an affirmation.

 

It is not beyond God to call you to some act of service or
mission that is beyond your present capability. In our understanding of what a
leader should be, we often have an idealized version that is dependent on their
talent and proven track record of successes. While there are certainly
strengths and weaknesses in each person, we sometimes choose talent over
character.

 

God has a bad habit of calling people that do not feel
qualified, talented, or especially capable. Unfortunately, too many people
dismiss God’s call in their life by giving reasons for God to choose someone
better.

Welcome To Choir Practice


 

How do we get in harmony with one another and sing this song
of Heaven? If this is choir practice, what piece of music are we working on
today?

 


 

Colossians 3:

15 Let
the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were
called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ
dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom
through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude
in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or
deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father
through him.

 

 

As one called to sing the song of Heaven, you have a very
important part to play. Listen to the director and listen to better voices
around you. We are going to keep practising this number and we are going to
sing for the whole world to hear—or at least for an audience of One.
