Water, Water, Everywhere; 
But Not a Drop to Drink

The human body is 70% water just like the earth. Water is the universal solvent. Almost all the events which happen in the body require a solution in water. Therefore it is very necessary to drink good amounts of water daily. I recommend that you drink at least 8 ounces before you drink any other kind of beverage. Tea, juice, milk, or coke does not count as water. In fact, your body does not require any of those fluids.

Municipal water treatment plants are not adequate to clean your water. They allow minimum levels of poisons and organisms which cause disease. And they add chemicals which are also harmful, such as chlorine and fluoride. Chlorine may contribute to miscarriage. And fluoride accumulates in the body and over time may contribute to decreased ability of the immune system to fight cancer and other diseases.

Can anything be done? Yes. You can filter your home’s water which will remove most things. But remember to change the filters often; bacteria and pollutants will render them ineffective eventually. Also, if the organisms are alive your filter may become a breeding place for them. Another solution is bottled water. But the industry is not regulated well and labeling is poor. Therefore you have no sure way of knowing what is in the water.

The method which I prefer is Steam Distillation. A distiller imitates the water cycle designed by God. As the sun warms the oceans, water evaporates leaving all solutes behind. As the water vapor rises, it cools and forms droplets which fall as rain or snow to the earth. If you collect your rain water, use it to wash with. It is probably safer to drink than the tap water. But it may have picked up unknown chemicals from the air. A distiller will remove all impurities found in water. And it kills the organisms so that they cannot grow in the machine. When you first wash out the debris in the bottom you will be shocked by the slime which was in the water.

I bought my distiller at Sears. I did not want to purchase it there, because Sears supports Planned Parenthood. I searched for weeks to find another source. But I did not find one. If any of you know of another source for a steam distiller, please write to us.

Many Roles Can Lead To Stress

We have many biblical roles to play in relation to people because we are Christian; servants, leaders, healers, peacemakers, etc. All these roles are good as long as the role is not our goal, but a means God has given us to reach His goal. In the first epistle to Timothy, chapter 3, Paul explains that the office of a deacon or bishop is a good work. But the candidate for the position must have demonstrated that he is able to handle the added stress inherent in such an important office. Our most important role is that of child of God.  Our roles in the Church are chores in God’s household. They are important, but not more important than fellowship with our Heavenly Father.

He may change our chores at anytime. And if we put the chore above our relationship with Him, we won’t be accomplishing what He desires in our lives. Therefore, talk to Him about everything. Ask Him questions all day long. And listen for Him to answer you. 

Many Roles Continued...

He is always waiting for us to walk in faith. And that is what pleases Him. He is never late. Remember Jesus said, “Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.” Mark 10:15. I believe we must continue to be as children, after we are saved, in order to be blessed and handle the stresses of this evil world. Later in the same chapter when his disciples were saying among themselves, “who then can be saved?” Jesus responded, “With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.”

I love the story in Mark 9:14-29 of the man whose son had a spirit tormenting him and he complained to Jesus that the disciples could not cast it out. In order to expose the man’s heart he asked him how long had he been like this. If we monitor what we say and think we will know what our spiritual problems are. The father responded, “Of a child. And oftimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him; but if thou canst do anything have compassion on us, and help us.” Now Jesus reproves the man’s unbelief “if thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” How can we correct our unbelief? Just as this man did, pray. He said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.” Every day and in every situation:

1.     Acknowledge who is Lord.
2.     Confess that you believe.
3.     Ask for help in believing.

Sometimes we forget who we are dealing with. Our Father in heaven knows how to help us and wants to help us. But we must ask. Believing is simple, just observe a young child with a loving parent.

Most people believe in God. Do you believe in God? Or do you believe God?
