Herbs have been used traditionally for healing by mankind for many thousands of years. They represent the ancient way of harmony, wherein nature provides the healing powers to energize, recharge and re-balance. There is increasing interest in herbs today as we become disillusioned with the strong and imbalanced drugs and chemicals of the western medical model. We have brought together some of the finest herbal texts available, including texts from a number of different herbal healing traditions, including Ayurveda and Chinese Herbology. In their internationally based research, the two best-selling authors made an almost sensational discovery: as the most recent scientific investigations show, the natural plant extract from the grapefruit has a previously unimagined range of effects and applications that can be employed with great success both internally and externally in general preventative health care, therapy, cosmetics, and baby care.
Preachers mount the pulpit steps terribly burdened by the conviction that they are somehow responsible for the growth and spiritual well-being of their congregants. How, they ask themselves, can mere words communicate the reality of God, bring life to a congregation, or foster spiritual growth? This study argues that effective sermons function much like Jesus' parables--by bearing witness to divine power. Parables and preaching both testify to something beyond themselves: to a life-giving dynamic that far outstrips the force of words alone. Preachers are not go-betweens or gatekeepers for the kingdom of heaven: rather, they imitate Jesus by dying to themselves in the very act of proclamation, relying directly on God for their sermons to bear fruit. As well as offering a novel interpretation of Jesus' agricultural parables, Of Seeds and the People of God presents a Christ-shaped theology of preaching. Beyond exegesis or rhetoric alone, faithful proclamation is a question of spirituality, of preachers and listeners together yielding to God's gift of new life.
It almost takes your breath away when you realize the tremendous power of the tongue. It can do things that are dastardly, destructive, degrading, and distressing. The tongue can lie. It can accuse. It can exaggerate. It can curse. It can deprave. It can slander. It can gossip. It’s the match that lights the fire! But when the tongue is under Christ’s control, it is mindboggling what it can do to the contrary. It can encourage. It can tell the truth. It can bless. It can speak love. It can bring hope! And the highest, most noble thing the tongue can do: it can praise Almighty God and proclaim redemption in Jesus Christ. This little body part that has the power to be so destructive when out of control, when under control has the power and the privilege of praising, adoring, exalting, and making known the living God.
In August, 2007, something extraordinary happened in the life of Mrs. Jennifer Isabirye (not her real names), a short, slender, middle-aged career teacher whom I had not met until that day. It was at a conference organized annually in Kamuli, a small town district in the eastern region of Uganda. The conference was held at Bethel Church. It was the first time I attended this prophetic event upon invitation to speak. Seated in the crowded room were people from the surrounding area and beyond, about 200 of them. This was not your usual event; strange things were happening as I singled out individuals, uncannily describing facts about their lives with amazing accuracy. Mrs. Isabirye happened to be one of them. You are angry at a certain man for financial reasons, I said to her. Forgive him, for if you dont you will hold back your progress. I also see a problem with your fibroids, I added. I see you had an operation about them, but it wasnt successful. I see a swelling around your lower abdomen (that part of her body was fully covered by her dress) and its because of those fibroids. I was not through with Mrs. Isabirye. Today you will experience a strange discharge from your body, but have no fear about it, for it will be God dealing with you. However, make sure you neither let your doctor nor your daughter know about it. If you do this if you keenly follow my revelatory directions you will receive a miraculous healing shortly. In her subsequent testimony, a day later, Mrs. Isabirye verified everything. Astounded at how I could know these things, she said, The man I was bitter with was my employer, because for six months I had not received my salary. Also, I have fibroids, and a few months ago I had an operation about them that wasnt successful. However, what surprised me even more was when he (implying me) said I should neither tell my doctor nor my daughter after the strange discharge from my body. I only see one doctor and I only have one daughter for a child; how he could have known that is beyond any earthly explanation. I experienced the strange discharge from my body that day, but unfortunately I told my doctor and daughter about it. Because she did not keenly follow the revelatory directions, Mrs. Isabirye did not receive her miraculous healing. However, the following year I was back there and I was taken to her house where I prayed for her. I called the experience extraordinary because that is what it was for Mrs. Isabirye and for several other people who got to witness or experience the mystical for the first time. But to me, such uncanny comprehension and the supernatural world are, for the lack of a better word, commonplace. And they can be for you too, if you are daring enough to read through. Atheist or agnostics may dismiss Mrs. Isabiryes story as spiritual mumbo-jumbo. They will undoubtedly have a perfectly logical argument why such supernatural occurrences are not possible. Denominational Christians who think of faith as nothing more than a set of dos and donts might similarly dismiss it, perhaps with less fervour. They too would have sound arguments in support of their positions. What I am presenting in this book, however, are experiences. The world abounds with arguments, every man or woman has one to back their position and most of them make good sense. But in her time of need, Mrs. Isabirye didnt need an argument, she needed an experience. Someone with an experience is never at the mercy of someone with just an argument. So whatever your disposition; believer, agnostic, atheist or anything in between, I dare you to read this with an open mind, you will undoubtedly find this text eerily challenging. Early experiences The mysterious world of the supernatural is not a reality I discovered in my latter years. Growing up as a child in Bugolobi, a middle-class suburb of Kampala, I frequently experienced close enc
In this world, success is often measured by the wealth and prestige that one acquires. So anyone who does not possess these things is considered a failure. However, for Belu Mabandla, her financial stability and her social status do not matter at all if she cannot ¿sow the seeds that benefit others.¿ With this in mind, she wrote The Power of Choice, a journal about her personal journey as a successful mother and career woman who was able to weather the storms of her life through her undying trust in God. The book also tells about the experiences of other people that can be a source of inspiration and valuable lessons

Multidisciplinary perspectives on musical arousal, expression, and social control

Pubpsher: OUP Oxford
How can an abstract sequence of sounds so intensely express emotional states? How does music elicit or arouse our emotions? What happens at the physiological and neural level when we listen to music? How do composers and performers practically manage the expressive powers of music? How have societies sought to harness the powers of music for social or therapeutic purposes? In the past ten years, research into the topic of music and emotion has flourished. In addition, the relationship between the two has become of interest to a broad range of disciplines in both the sciences and humanities. The Emotional Power of Music is a multidisciplinary volume exploring the relationship between music and emotion. Bringing together contributions from psychologists, neuroscientists, musicologists, musicians, and philosophers, the volume presents both theoretical perspectives and in-depth explorations of particular musical works, as well as first-hand reports from music performers and composers. In the first section of the book, the authors consider the expression of emotion within music, through both performance and composing. The second section explores how music can stimulate the emotions, considering the psychological and neurological mechanisms that underlie music listening. The third section explores how different societes have sought to manage and manipulate the power of music. The book is valuable for those in the fields of music psychology and music education, as well as philosophy and musicology
It was only a few years ago, God shed his light on me. Anointed me with the gift of writing poetry. He opened my eyes to understand from the scripture that I read. A powerful message came down from above and descended here on me. The grace of God bestowed on me, the special gift that was given. Burns in my soul, lets the words flow on this paper it is written. O may I thank him daily for what he has given to me. May my heart yearn to do his will, to use this gift he placed in me. To see the mighty hand of God, the creator of all things. Who used a humble servant, made her a child of the King!
