The question: should Canada prioritize climate change adaptation or should Canada spend more funds on mitigation. Today Canada, like many other western nations, is following a chaotic pathway to solving GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE. These countries have spent a fortune rejigging their energy system while barely reducing emissions.
Global Affairs Canada’s spends $7.0 billion in 2018–19, including $298 million (4%) for various climate change initiatives such as greater energy efficiency and better public transit systems.
Emissions of carbon dioxide – the greenhouse gas most responsible for global warming – reached an all-time high in 2018. The extra CO2 caused temperatures to rise to levels that cannot be explained by natural factors, scientists report. In the past 20 years, the world’s temperature has risen about two-thirds of a degree Fahrenheit, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said. Much more needs to be done, because if countries stick to the commitments they have already made, we are on track to see 3 degrees Celsius of global warming. http://africapitalism.us/carbon-tax-failure/
This year, the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere reached its highest level in recorded history, at 410 parts per million. CO2 levels were about 280 parts per million before the Industrial Revolution in the late 1800s.
The map identifies seven “greening clusters” circled in red – including (1) across central North America, (2) southern Brazil, (3) the European Union, (4) Central Africa, (5) India, (6) China and (7) South Australia. Cropland expansion has contributed the most to greening. Six out of seven “greening clusters” (shown on the map) have highly intensive agriculture.
China and India account for one-third of the greening but contain only 9% of the global vegetated land area. China has, according to its government, planted 35 billion trees since the 1990s. This greening trend we see from human activity cannot offset the loss of rainforest. Africa has lost 2.6 billion tons of CO2 in just seven years.
Let us examine a car tire that represents our world but it has serious leaks, which are hardly being addressed. Canada is obsessed with it small leak and it has budgeted for a very large carbon tax plug which does little to solve the flat tire.
What is sadly needed is more realism. There is a very large hole that needs to be plugged. Canada must show leadership by encouraging international cooperation. Global problems require global solutions: countries must work together to solve their common problem.
Trees are the strongest weapons we have in the fight against climate change. Planting of trees absorb CO2, but trees must be planted now in countries like Uganda that have lots of sun and rain. – not sometime in the future. The situation requires more swift and energetic action.
It starts with one tree nursery in Uganda that is self-sustaining. Such a model is already in place at a bare bones cost of $40,000. Since our own tree nursery still has a lot of unknowns, it can be assumed that the budget will be much higher. There are additional costs involving scooter trucks for delivery of seedlings, which only cost $1500, and later can be also used to transport produce.
Storage of easily spoiled fruit becomes a necessity. Simple inexpensive storage facilities are explained on the web sites of AfriCapitalism.us
THE CARBON TAX FUND FOR TREES
The fund can support 500 trees on one farm for a total cost of $250 for a period of 25 years plus an initial $500 for a total of $750 for one orchard.
There will be 500 trees with a NPV of $0.49/tree seedling: at the rate of $15/ton, the Net Present Value (NPV) is $250.
Add $1.00/tree for reporting and auditing for 25 years (that’s a one-off total – not per year): $500 to be audited by Living Water MicroFinance Inc. for 25 years. This will be monitored by a local cooperative.
This part of the fund will support each 1.5 acre farm that will have access to $150/year in the form of micro finance assistance complements of the Carbon Tax Fund. Each $150 will be recycled nine times for a total of $1,350.
This calculation does NOT include income streams from the fruit and nut produce, which are reserved for the women farmers and their families. Later, irrigation can be added for a remunerative 275% crop improvement.
Since it takes up to two years for an orchard to be productive, a reliable source of income in the meantime will come from vegetable gardening like yams that would be planted in between the trees.
THE MODEL TODAY’S TALL TREE NURSERY
The model tree nursery should be located near a developed area in order to access more professional manpower like a technical agricultural school. The school can provide training for the necessary expansion of tree nurseries throughout Uganda or other parts of Africa.
The nursery must be located at the banks of a water source, preferably near fast moving water like rapids or waterfalls in order to tap into the production of electricity. See http://hugenergy.us. Badly needed electricity can be used to support a host of small industries in the area.
With electricity it is possible to introduce large pumps that can provide irrigation: https://livingwatermicrofinance.org/carbon-pollution-irrigation/
The secret of this success is a sustainable approach to a tree nursery: fertilization is assured from both rabbits and fish that are part of the project. The system provides rabbit fur and meat and fish. The expansion of the project can happen very quickly to other parts of Africa once success has been proven. https://livingwatermicrofinance.org/rabbit-fish-farm/
There is a social, spiritual and economic goal of the project:
- Socially it supports women farmers and widows and their families.
- Spiritually small community groups of women gather weekly for support and spiritual guidance.
- Economically the successful orchards provide needed employment rurally and can take the pressure from the high unemployment rates in the urban parts of Africa.
THE LAND ISSUE
Historically, Uganda has an abundance of land that became available upon the expulsion of white settlers by the horrific eight year rule of Idi Amin in the 1970s. Much of this land is held by the government but also to the “lucky” supporters of Amin.
Presently, there is a problem of adequate service of roads which require government funding. Taxation is the usual way to raise funds for benefits received. Many landlords are not paying adequate taxes to support such a project of good roads. In any other country the land would be seized by the government for non-payment of reasonable taxes.
For our purposes, our project needs the stability of a long term arrangement up to 50 years in order to support women farmers and their families over many generations. If Canada agrees to initiate the necessary initial investment, the Uganda government should equally share the load with free land. Uganda should also be in a position to help provide agricultural expertise that would be supported by the carbon tax fund.
Within two to three years, this same land will be providing taxation support for Uganda. Alternatively, the land can be leased on a long term contract (50 years) and the landowner must then pay for the taxes. Canada could entertain the idea of an offer-to-purchase available land at a reasonable rate.
Some land can come initially from Church lands, which will be used to support farming parishioners who in turn will support the Church clergy and buildings. Small spiritual communities are an important aspect of church life.
Lands that are donated to support this project will inherit a legacy https://livingwatermicrofinance.org/living-water-microfinance-legacy/ One can also benefit from charitable tax deductions in the western world: http://africapitalism.us/african-landlord-donation/
Tree Nursery & Carbon Tax Fund
SO THAT OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS CAN LIVE IN DIGNITY Living Water MicroFinance Inc. has an operating micro model in order to deliver a solution for the Carbon Tax Fund.
The Marginalization of the Poor in the Tropics
WHICH MODERN SOCIETY ITSELF HAS CREATED
We envision a world that solves the carbon emission problem by creating the tree nursery concept in Africa.
In the past four years, global prices of staples such as maize and wheat have twice hit record levels, driving hundreds of thousands of the world’s most vulnerable people further towards hunger and poverty.
The 100-year trend of falling food prices may be over and food prices may increase by 30-50 percent within decades, severely impacting on the very poor, who spend up to 90 percent of their income on food.
Domesticate indigenous fruit trees could help provide much-needed vitamins to millions of sub-Saharan Africans. The diversity of forest, fallow and agricultural margin foods can often help provide the range of micro nutrients needed for the human diet.
The trees’ natural habitats are being lost, mainly to widespread deforestation resulting from population growth, the cutting of trees for firewood or charcoal. Due to years of unsustainable farming practices, the soil across much of Africa has been degraded. African farmers only have access to 5% of the level of fertilizer per unit area of land as compared to their East Asian counterparts.
Farmers may see little incentive to intentionally grow indigenous fruits as a crop, because the trees are perceived as taking years to mature. This may be true in the wild, but not always when trees are cultivated.
With just 37% of the land, small farms produced 73% of agricultural output. Small farms are getting smaller because, with population pressure, farmers have to share access to existing land among more people while gaining no access to new land.
Land access for women is specifically part of the Millennium Development Goals. According to FAO, fewer than 2% of landholders worldwide are women. Many men can make decisions about the land on behalf of themselves and their spouses, but women cannot. Another impediment is that in giving credit, governments and banks require women to present some form of authorization from their husbands or fathers: only 10% of agricultural loans go to women.
A fresh approach both to food production and the use of natural resources is needed if we are to avoid the food crises expected to touch every country in the world by the middle of this century. We can reverse the trend by giving small farmers, especially women, the means to feed the world: with intensive/market oriented agriculture on a 1.5 acre piece of land.
The Secret is the AgroForest
Tree Nursery & Carbon Tax Fund
- To absorb carbon dioxide in order to solve the global warming crisis
- To produce more food economically in order to deal with world famine
- To produce fruit, nut and fodder trees that will be used for furniture and not for burning.
- To restore land by planting nitrogen-fixing trees among the fruit, nut and foliage trees
- To develop organic agriculture without using chemical fertilizers or pesticides.
- To provide all requirements of daily vitamin needs.
3. Micro Financing for women farmers financed by the Carbon Tax Fund: Small Farm: 1.5 acre: 500 orchard and foliage trees:
- Carbon Tax Fund Support: $15/tree (brought forward) over the expected lifetime of 50 years. The $15/ton is equivalent to $0.14/US gal.
- The cost of a HUG Irrigation System: $7,000,000
- 14,000 acres to support 9,400 farms x 500 x $1.49 (NPV) = $7,000,000
NPV: Net Present Value of a tree is its value over its 50 lifetime of absorbing CO2 emissions at the rate of 1.5 tons/tree.
Please Note: another calculation of NPV of fruit trees living for 25 years = $0.49/tree plus $1.00/tree for maintenance: $1.49/tree. (Fruit trees are productive for 25 years and then are replaced.)
The $0.49/tree is based on $15/ton of carbon dioxide emissions. Canada will levy a $20/ton next and increase this to $30/ton . That means the new NPV will be $0.66/tree & $0.99/tree respectively for a total of $1.66/tree and $1.99/tree.
4. Training with Field Officers and Agronomists
5. Market facilitation with HUG electricity for cold storage of produce
II. Living Water MicroFinance Inc. macro model includes:
- Maximizing the benefits of including women.
- Catalyzing committed partners: collaboration of partners committed to African agriculture.
- Overcoming constraints to investment through innovation, learning and tools.
- Committing to agricultural transformation in Africa in manageable divided units.
- Focusing on helping smallholders and domestic companies to succeed commercially.
- Introducing Vertical integration with Irrigation and Electricity from the HUG
The following trees will be among those chosen as cash crops (while capturing carbon dioxide):
- Fruit Trees: Lychee, Apricot, Black Cherry (150 years old), Cherry Tomatoes, Passion fruit, Jackfruit, Avocado, Mango, Kiwi, Dragon Fruit, Peach, Strawberry, Raspberry, Palm, Apple, Orange, Pomegranate, Guavas and Pawpaw trees
- Nut Trees: Walnut, Hazelnut, Almond, Macadamia, Pecan, Pistachio, Lychee, Coconut, Cashew and Chestnut trees and compete with larger interests.
- Legume or Nitrogen Fixing Trees: Gliricidia Sepium, Albizia Lebbeck, Leucaena Leucocephala, including Beans, Cowpea, Groundnut, Bambara groundnut, Chickpea, Pigeon pea, Soybean
- Fodder or Foliage Trees: Cassava, including Napier grass
- Timber Trees definitely need to be planted, but they are slow-growing and will not give immediate benefit to the community. They should be planted for their grandchildren. Grevillea Trees are rot resistant.
- Pole Trees: are blue gum (eucalyptus) which are fast-growing and produce excellent poles. They can be coppiced regularly.
Other Types of Trees:
- Neem: Azadirachtin, the active ingredient in neem, is a very effective pesticide. It repels insects and disrupts their growth and reproduction. A neem solution can be sprayed directly on plants to deal with existing insects and to help repel further insect attack. Neem can also be used on animals to kill fleas, ticks, intestinal parasites, and repel blowflies.
- We can place Artemisia thorns on the outside edge as a barrier, which prevents dogs (and humans) from trampling the beds.
- Moringa Oleifera tolerates a wide range of soil and rainfall conditions. Moringa leaves are a nutritional powerhouse. They are a rich source of essential amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. They also contain a significant amount of vitamin A, B-vitamins and vitamin C. The mineral wealth of Moringa includes calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and zinc.
Fresh leaves can be added to salads or cooked and used like spinach, and are commonly dried and crushed into a powder added to foods (such as porridge, relishes, etc.) to add flavour and nutrition. Their flowers are used for tea making.
Moringa oil is perhaps the best natural perfume base of all oils. It absorbs the aroma of essential oils and other fragrant compounds like herbs, spices and chemicals (‘enfleurage’). It also has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, helps clear acne and minimise dark spots and can be applied over scars. It can boost the immune system of humans
- TheJackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus) is a very large, oval fruit. A good yield is 150 large fruits per tree annually, although the wastage is estimated around 75% because they deteriorate very quickly after ripening. They are rich in carbohydrate, proteins and vitamin A. The juicy pulp of the ripe fruit is eaten fresh as a dessert or preserved in syrup. The seeds are eaten cooked, roasted or fried. Unripe fruits are consumed as a vegetable which is similar to breadfruit.
All parts of the tree have been reported to have medicinal properties for: aphrodisiac (increased sexual desire), androgenic (male hormone), and healing for asthma, fever and diarrhoea. The green leaf is also sold for fodder.
Jackfruit timber is highly valued. It is highly durable, resistant to termites and decay, seasons easily, resembles mahogany in appearance, and takes a beautiful polish.
- Tree grapes (Lannea microcarpa) look and taste more like grapes and hang from trees in grape-like bunches. The leaves are 18% protein and 5% mineral, which is acts as foliage for humans and animals. The leaves can be boiled up as a sweet beverage. The 1 cm long fruit can be eaten fresh or dried like raisins for longer-term storage. The flowers are very attractive to bees, and beekeepers often hang their hives among the branches of this tree.
The Cost of Doing Business:
The best time to plant NUT TREES was 20 years ago
THE SECOND BEST TIME IS NOW
- A tree maintained over 25 years has a Net Present Value of $0.49/tree based on its capture of carbon dioxide over this lifetime.
- The cost to grow and plant trees in Africa over the long run is another $1.00/tree: additional cost of maintenance: weeding, pruning, mulching, slashing, care against disease and infestations:
- With the support from the Carbon Tax Fund, the Tree Farm is scalable to produce over 1,000,000 trees in a short time.
- Wages: $600/year ($2/day)
- Nursery Time: 8.5 man hours/tree
- Total Time for Preparation and Maintenance for only 3 years: 5 man hours/tree
- Time allotted for 5000 trees: 10 man hours/tree: $1.49/tree. This cost is partially covered by the value of planted trees: Firewood: K 333/tree/year ($3.30) after 3 years and Poles: K400/tree ($4.00) in 4 years. The fruit and cacao trees are very productive.
There is no incentive to maintain a forest on a short term lease: the lease must be 50 to 100 years or perpetuity.
Preparation at the Tree Nursery: Tricks of the Trade
- Planting out should be carried out after the start of the rainy season in wet soil, ideally from early December to the end of January.
- Root pruning: All tree seedlings should have their roots pruned three weeks before planting out so that the roots can recover.
- Selecting the tree seedlings: Select the healthy tree seedlings of a uniform size, and organize these into groups and quantities for each planting site.
- One month before planting, remove the shading from the tree nursery and reduce the morning watering to half a watering can for 200 tree seedlings. This will harden off the tree seedlings and get them used to direct sunlight and reduced water before being planted out.
- Origami-style banana leaf cups can be filled. Tree seedlings should be carried using the metal basins. Planting out must be done either early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the midday heat.
- The top of the soil around the tree seedling must be at the same level as the top of the soil in the pit. Form a basin of soil 60 cm in diameter around the tree seedling, which is used to capture water.
- Compost making process: The first layer of many layers in the bottom of the pit is 10 cm (4 inches) of forest or dambo soil. The second layer is 10 cm (4 inches) of leaves or grass which should be compacted by walking on top of it. The third layer is 10 cm (4 inches) of manure.
The Notch Planting Technique
Notch planting utilizes a simple “planting bar”, a blunt wedge attached to a T-shaped handle to make a 6″ wide slit in the soil, ideally just large enough to invite the seedlings’ bare roots Be careful not to creating a large pocket of air at the bottom of the hole
Grab the seedling you intend to plant and then carefully ‘swipe’ the plants’ roots into the notch. Then use the planting bar to create a notch an inch or two uphill from the seedling and use the tool to firm up soil against the planting notch, removing all air pockets. Use the tool to carve away the soil around the edge of the final notch, creating a smooth basin for water to collect just above the seedling. Firm up the soil on either side of the seedling by stepping lightly around the perimeter of the young tree.
The Orchard: Mix tree varieties – diversity rules!
- Diversifying your orchard will boost its productivity.
- Fruit tree varieties bear fruit at different times. For home fruit growing, you are better off having a continuous supply of fruit with early, middle and late season fruiters, rather than a big glut of fruit all at once.
- Keep the orchard trees small, so you can cover the fruit, or even the whole tree, thus dealing with the bird problem.
- Only grow fruits that are not attacked: Apricots, nectarines and peaches are highly vulnerable to fruit fly, whereas most plums, citrus and other fruit trees are not.
- Encourage wild birds into your garden by putting in a bird bath and planting native bird attracting shrubs around.
- Fallen fruit is food for the fruit-loving rabbits and fish
- With heavy mulching to prevent evaporation, the water use can be cut by more than half.
- Typically, an orchard comprises between 60 and 80 trees per acre. Average yield may be between 500 and 2,000 nuts per tree depending on nut.
- About 80 Pecan trees are planted per acre. Given the right climate and sufficient water, an acre can produce between 60,000 and 80,000 Pecans per acre.
- Typical plantings of 80 Macadamia trees per acre is pretty much standard.
- Typical orchard plantings space Lychee trees 30 feet apart to produce 18,000 Lychee nuts per acre.
- Typical chestnut plantings spaced 40 feet apart produce 80,000 chestnuts per acre.
- Typical orchard plantings spaced 30 feet apart produce 90,000 Cashew nuts per acre.
- Cacao and coffee are major cash crops in humid parts of West Africa, and both grow well in shade, which the fruit trees can help provide. This may be considered a form of crop intensification—
The mixed orchard is the way to beat the monoculture nonsense. God has designed nature as a self-healing system, provided we work with her rather than against her.
The extra trees on intensely cultivated parcel of land on their 1.5 acres can be sold, when they are mature. The African farmer can make enough money to pay school fees for all his children who are still in school and to start a business buying and selling cattle.
Farmers’ first banana plants have taken 13.2 months on average to harvest. They then harvest every 5-7 months thereafter, providing a source of food and income even during the annual hunger season prior to the maize harvest.
Seedlings initially take more time to produce crops but they are much more robust than cloned or grafted trees, and they live longer.
Seeds will keep for four weeks in the fruit after harvest, but begin to lose viability within a day if removed, and none germinate after four days at low humidity. More seeds germinate when stored in water for a day than when stored in vermiculite or air.
A sprouting table is a simple plywood and lumber-framed table with a roll of plastic sheeting in the bottom and 2 inches up the sides, with a drain fitting at one end to drain the water back to the aquaponics troughs. For this small a table, you can just bring a 5-gallon bucket of water or two over from the aquaponics trough and dump it slowly and carefully into the uphill end of the table.
After the starts reach their optimum maturity in the sprouting table (which is when the little plants are about 11/2-2 inches tall), they get moved into the rafts in the aquaponics system.
Don’t neglect to water them for two to three days at a stretch. This may not be enough to kill them, but is enough to shock them so that they wouldn’t grow.
In aquaponics the nutrient wastes from the fish are used to fertilize hydroponics beds via irrigation water while the plant roots and associated bacteria remove fish waste, algae, and excess fish food from the water that would otherwise build up to toxic levels in the fish tank.
A recirculating system is used to raise fish and vegetables that uses less land, water, and chemicals than traditional methods. It is 3 to 9 times more productive and requires one third or less of the man hours than a traditional dirt farm. It uses less than 80% of water and can be set up in very arid climates.
The plants can be put in the aquaponics system in a variety of ways:
- Seeds planted in seed trays and then transferred to grow beds when they germinate.
- Plant from cuttings and grafting directly into the AP grow beds.
Hydroponic vs Conventional Farming
Below are common fish species used in an aquaponics system of which Tilapia is the favorite:
|Perch||Koi||Freshwater mussels||Freshwater prawns||Barramundi|
Below are some of the crop favorites that have been tried and tested on aquaponics systems.
One can choose polystyrene sheets that are at least 3 cm thick to hold the weight of the vegetables. Painted plywood can also be used. Drill the plant holes using a circular drill bit: hole size can range from 16 mm (for planting seedlings directly into the rafts without cups to 30 mm.)
The water flows into rectangular tanks that have bird netting.
Alternatively, a trough is dug and covered with a roll of thick plastic sheeting.
There can be 20 grow bed troughs built on a 1 acre field. Each trough measures 96 feet long by 8 feet wide, for a total growing area of 768 square feet per trough and 13,800 square feet for the entire system. There is only 10-12 inches of water depth in each trough. The troughs can be covered with Styrofoam floats, so there is minimal evaporation.
An alternative plan is to use a media bed of 30 cm deep: the medium is used to support the roots of the plants. Volcanic gravel is the most popular medium to use for media bed units and is recommended where available.
Growth medium can be normally gravel, roughly 10 ~ 20 mm in size, not too small and not too big. Even floating in the water would be fine if properly held together. Gravel height should be about 1” above water level, or the stand pipe height initially, with time as the plant grow this water level can be adjusted lower. The best medium to use actually should not contain soil. These wicking beds can have earthworms too.
When the system is in balance, both the fish and the plants benefit from this relationship. Fish produce most of the nutrients we need to grow our plants. The only supplements we need to add are iron, and occasionally calcium and potassium which help buffer the water PH.
Many plants are suitable for aquaponic systems, though which ones work for a specific system depends on the maturity and stocking density of the fish. The tilapia are in the tank to eat, pee, and poo. In fact, they will be expected to consume around 4000 g of fish food a day. This results in a harvesting 1 cohort during a 4 week period, or 30 fish a week.
The nutrient rich water is circulated through long canals at a depth of about 20 cm while rafts (usually polystyrene) float on top. A shallow excavation with a roll of plastic will suffice for the container that holds the rafts. A low netting system will provide a bird net protection.
Unlike the plants, the fish do not need direct sunlight. In fact, it is important for the fish tanks to be in the shade. This will prevent algae growth and will help to maintain a stable water temperature during the day. Either locate the system away from overhanging vegetation or keep the tank covered with a screen.
Fish tanks are vulnerable to predators. Using shade netting, tarps or other screening over the fish tanks will prevent all of these threats. It is also worth preventing leaves and organic debris from entering the fish tanks, as the decaying leaf matter can stain the water. Agricultural shading nets block 80–90 percent of sunlight. The shade cloth can be attached to a simple wooden frame to support the weight and make the cover easy to remove.
Omnivorous fish (tilapia, bluegill, koi and catfish) require a lower protein feed (typically 32% protein). Younger fish require more protein than mature fish. Only feed the fish what they will consume in 5 minutes – no more than 1 tablespoon per 20 fish per day. As a guideline, mature tilapia typically consume about 1% of their body weight in feed a day, while fingerlings can consume as much as 7%. The fish can be fed from the earthworms and vegetables grown within the grow beds of the system. Algae is one of nature’s richest sources of Omega 3 fatty acids.
The ratio between fish and plants is based on the feeding rate ratio. The feeding rate ratio is the amount of feed fed to the fish daily per square meter of plant growing area. For a raft hydroponic system, the optimum ratio varies from 60 to 100g/m2/day.”
Once a week one can flood the pond with new water. The fish like Tilapia are quite hardy, but they still need dissolve oxygen.
Duckweed is a natural foliage floating plant. Mulberry and Bamboo can also be grown. Fish and rice can grow together:
Ducks and Chickens:
Ducks and chickens are warm blooded and can carry salmonella, where the potential for broken eggs to fall into warm water is high. Some bacteria from chicken waste will even embed themselves in the leaves of the plant and potentially not be able to be washed off.
Growing Your Vegetables in Fish Water rather than Soil
It is a common fact that growing rice requires enormous amounts of water and other nutrients too. Rice also offers protection for the fish against sun and predators. It takes about 2 square meter to yield 1 kg of unprocessed rice, but then comes drying, storing, milling and processing. It may not be commercially viable, yet locally desirable.

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.
HOW DO WE KNOW THIS?
Some Christian disciples use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.
2. COMPLETE SENSE OF PEACE?
After you have been delivered from evil influences, you will have a definite physical experience of a complete sense of peace.
Once you experience a physical sense of peace because of deliverance, you know that you will be healed. This helps you build up your faith, which is very crucial: No faith! No healing!
Some Christian disciples have the gift of healing. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.
THE WHOLE FAMILY BENEFITS
In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ. No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions shows a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17 (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.
The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.
Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.
Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.
He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?
- Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.”
- Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
- Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength.
- Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
- Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
- Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
- Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.
Christianity on a Table Napkin:
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin. “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.” Luke 1: 49
Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”? And Jesus saved them both.
