Wake Up and Smell the Froggy

If you take a cold blooded animal, like a frog, put it in a pan of water and raise the temperature ever so slowly; he will just sit there even as he boils. Many of you are aware that our nation is in a similar situation, ever so slowly it has lost the ability to make sensible judgments. We have sacrificed our rights, and our authority as citizens on the altar of complacency. And no matter what issue you discuss, the solution to the root problem is boldly teaching the power of God that is available through the knowledge of His Word. If we don’t take back the land by speaking the truth in love, we will soon be reminiscing about the freedom of religion.

WE THE PEOPLE of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Do you know what the constitution says? Do you understand how it is being undermined by corrupt politicians and judges? Do you realize that our over dependence on predigested education and entertainment is the cause of this American Frog Cook-off? Why do you think most people call the U.S. a democracy? The founding Fathers called it a Republic. What we really have today, is a socialist democracy like the U.S.S.R. The only thing that is different is that our constitution documents our God-given rights with some power delegated to the government. The U.S.S.R.’s constitution established the power of the state and gave certain rights to the people.

All that has changed in the U.S.S.R. is the name and the maps. Now the Commonwealth of Independent States can have “free” elections and a new excuse to extort money from the west. The rights of those people, according to their constitution are still given by the government and therefore can be revoked. And the children are still the property of the state.

Start reclaiming your rights by studying our godly heritage in the “Red” books published by Foundation for American Christian Education. F.A.C.E., Box 27035, San Francisco, CA 94127, (415)661-1775 or visit

Old Mother Hubbard's Cupboard


This common culinary herb has remedial uses also. As everyone knows, cayenne is hot! It can be used to temporarily bring on a therapeutic fever, when the body is sluggish, as in cold conditions. It increased the circulation and causes perspiration. And therefore can be used in conjunction with other herbs to increase their perfusion and absorption.

Cayenne is also helpful when digestive troubles are caused by lack of stomach acid.

Cayenne can be taken as an infusion, wow! Or in capsule form. It is contraindicated in cases of extreme high blood pressure or gastric ulcer.

Parts used: dried fruit

Systems affected:digestive, circulatory, and any tissue directly applied to.

Properties:antiseptic, stimulant, diaphoretic, carminative, counter irritant.

Infusion: ½ tsp. powder in 1 cup boiling water. Steep until cool enough to drink. Store up to 3 days in frig. Take 1 Tbsp. 3 X a day.

Plaster: Mix part cayenne powder with a paste of 5 parts Slippery Elm powder.

Make it Your Own

Burdens, burdens, we all carry so many burdens. Which ones do we give away to the Lord? Which do we keep and which do we share? What does the Word say?

Well, this is what I found under “burden” in the Young’s Concordance:

9. Weight, baros.
Matt 20.12 to us, which have borne the burden and
Acts 15.28 the Holy Ghost…lay…no greater burden
Gal. 6.2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so
Rev. 2.24 I will put upon you none other burden

10. Freight (of a ship), gomos
Acts 21. 3 there the ship was to unlade her burden

11. Load (to be borne), phortion
Matt 11.30 my yoke is easy, and my burden is light
Matt 23. 4 For they bind heavy burdens and grieve
Luke 11.46 for you lade men with burdens grievous
Luke 11.46 and ye yourselves touch not the burdens
Galo. 6.5 For every man shall bear his own burden

BURDEN, to – to weigh down
2 Co. 12.16 be it so, I did not burden you: nevertheless

BURDEN, to be a – to become a burden

BURDEN selves, to – to burden, load
Zech 12.3 all that burden themselves with it shall

BURDENED – Pressure
2 Co. 8.13 not that other men be eased, and ye

Of all the Greek words listed, these seemed to apply to the question at hand; baros, and phortion. As I went back and forth from the English words in the Young’s to the Greek index-lexicon in the back, a new list formed:

Baros, n. – burden (4 times) or weight (1); Mt. 20:12, Acts 15:28, Gal. 6.2, Rev. 2:24; II Cor. 4:17.

Barunomai, v. – to be overcharged (1); Luke 21:34.

Barus, adj. – grievous (3), heavy (1), weighty (1), weighty matter (1); Acts 20.29, 25.7, I John 5.3; Mt 23.4, II Cor. 10.10;

Now, go through your Bible and mark these words with a B or P to tell you their root. If you have room write the whole word. Then, when you read them again, you will have a much deeper understanding.

Another reference tool that is useful is the Bullinger’s Critical Greek Lexicon and Concordance. It is set up a little differently.

There are burdens which we must bear alone. Some are put upon us by Jesus, But His are light. Some are put upon us by people, which we must bear, because they are God-given authorities over us, such as, parents, and rulers. In Matthew 23 and Luke 11:46, we see that before the day of Pentecost, even when Christ was walking the earth, the Levites had God-given authority over the people, even though they were evil. They bound the people to specific burdens that must be born. And those burdens were oppressive. And the scribes and Pharisees did not do “the weightier matters of the law; judgment, mercy, and faith.” Today, the priesthood is not held by men. So this burden, obeying men’s traditions, is overcome in Christ. Hebrews 9:28 and I Peter 2:24 speak of the burden that Christ had to bear to fulfill God’s Word. Now, what about government? Must we bear the burdens put on us by the ungodly politicians today?

This is my paradox: I believe our founding fathers were led of God to throw off the yoke put upon them by England. But the Bible seems to say in Romans 13 that we should do what the government says. Yet the revolution in this country was after years of prayer and revival. And God blessed them. I realize it was not a light decision on their part. I want to stir you up to fervent prayer over what is to be your part in the current war between those who hate God and those who love Him. We must be free to preach the Word. And we must begin by studying those principles which were set down for our nation, in order to preserve the God-given freedoms for our children. While our parents watched, America became a socialist democracy. Pray that God will grant us the wisdom to reclaim our once Godly nation. I am not a socialist; I am freeborn according to the Constitution. And so are you. How did this socialist take over happen? Parents stopped teaching the weightier matters to their children. And to fill the time they watched television. That may seem too simple. But the dominant change in family life in the last century has been television and federally controlled education.

The burdens we must bear are those that God has revealed to each of us. That is what He sent the Comforter, holy spirit, to do in us. Lead us individually to the truth. He has burdened me to exhort people to be courageous in the areas of health and freedom. We.....??????
