The great compromise
By: Beloved Bondservant
           
Discovering the missing link of Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils has been only one part of what I believe is YHWH’s call to Israel to return to Him.  In light of the current meltdown of every world system in which we have put our confidence, many of us have begun seeking for truth.  Time and error has armed the systems that be with appropriate documentation to relieve itself from any responsibility for the consequences of undesirable outcomes.  As a result we as consumers are becoming more aware of our personal responsibility to safeguard our health.  This is a healthy response to the crisis at large; because it is only as we see the existing systems of the world crumble that we will search for the truth.  It is this search for truth that will bring us back to our Heavenly Father.  It is our desire to beat His system that has driven us to Spiritual bewilderment, social catastrophe, and physical devastation. 
As a result of this current top-to-bottom meltdown many of us have been convicted to return to a more practical lifestyle.  The insatiable “American Dream” is for all intensive purposes in foreclosure causing many of us to accept that it is indeed better to have a bird in the hand then reach for the two in the bush.  No longer are we striving to compete with the Joneses next door.  The dream is finally over, and the alarm clock is loudly beckoning us to wake up.  We can no longer afford to push the snooze button any more.  It is time to pay the piper, and assume ownership for the outcome of the choices we make.  As more of us become aware of our responsibility to be informed consumers concerning the choices we make, many of us are experiencing a true liberality in this acquisition.  We are finding that conservative living represents true freedom.  It’s becoming more acceptable to be conservative in our spending, conscious of the resources we use, and informed about the impact our wastefulness has on the world around us.  Being conservative in our living allows for us to be liberal in our love for others.
     This acceptance of personal accountability has been a wake up call to which there is no snooze button to push.  The time to wake up is now, because our procrastination has dyer consequences for the future generations.  While from the top-to-bottom we have neglected responsibility, the bottom up has paid the ultimate price for any system glitches.  The ultimate price for any undesired results will rest solely on the shoulders of the bottom, even if it was a result of the tops advice.  Our existing system creates a sweet deal for the institutions at the expense of the people.  In any war you must know how to expose your enemies’ vulnerability to your advantage.  In this war the weapon of warfare is information.  The litmus test involved in this endeavor is based on the Source of the information given.  Begging the question, who is the source of your information?  Who determines when time is up for you in the hard cases of health scares?  Who has the final say concerning your talent or ability?  Who decides if you are college material? Who can tell you the outcome of the decisions that you make today?  The irony is with all the government agencies, regulations, and stimulus packages we still suffer as a people from misdiagnoses, medication failures, environmental toxicities, joblessness, and homelessness.  
     The economic crisis and the healthcare crisis of government insurance to accidental deaths and drug recalls has caused all of us as consumers to question the systems that be.  However, we shouldn’t eject from the plane just yet.  It is necessary that we become disenchanted with the systems that be.  It is essential that we experience the failure of all that we have put our trust in, so that we will return to the only One who is worthy of our trust.  Many people think we are headed for an economic collapse, a government collapse, a military collapse, and a healthcare collapse.  As the scriptures have accurately predicted, men’s hearts are failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are to come.1  The evidence of this is revealed in our own statistics, the number one killer is heart disease.2  It is being reviewed by many analysts and taken more seriously in the science field how our emotional state affects our health.  Yet at the core of this systems malfunction signal that is going off in every strata of our nation is the greatest cause of our demise and it is called a moral collapse. 
     Next year will be the 40th year anniversary that we, a nation that declares that all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, have allowed death to reign through our pro-death policies under the guise of preferential rights.  For those of us who make it out of the greatest war zone in the U.S., the womb, we have an opportunity to go to combat for that right, a voice to speak, a fist to fight, and a finger to pull a trigger if necessary to secure that right.  This right to life was so important to the founders that they even followed up in the Bill of Rights with the second amendment right to arm ourselves against anyone including our own government if such rights should be taken from us.3  The Founders having to fight against their own country to secure their own rights here made sure provision was made in our Constitution to prevent government from becoming a tyranny upon its people. 
     In the past two decades we have seen what happens to a nation that gives up its rights for security.  We have found truthfully that as Benjamin Franklin stated, “He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither.”4  As Christians if we truly desire to live in the freedom that Yah has provided for us we have to go back to the wilderness.  Learn the lessons again of living a life in obedience to Yah’s written word and spoken word.  Begin prayerfully seeking the Father to show us ways to lead a more simplistic life.  We must change the desires of our heart so that we desire the things He desires for us. 
     As we look forward to Thanksgiving this year I hope we will truly focus on giving thanks to our Creator.  It is my prayer that we will return to the simplicity that is in Messiah Yahoshua in our lives.5 (2 Cor. 11:3)  Live within our means, and begin valuing the things that our Creator values.  I hope we would begin appreciating the resources He has given us, but distinguishing that from worshipping it.  Recognizing He is the one who gives us all things richly to enjoy.6(1 Tim. 6:17) 
     As His children it is time for us to return our hearts back to Him, engage in the beautiful relationship He desires to have with us.  Begin recognizing that we don’t have the answer, but rather we know the One who is the Answer to our economic dilemma, healthcare crisis, educational shortfall, and He is the only one able to keep the enemy from crossing our borders.  History reveals to us that although the desire to be one nation under God has been the goal, we have yet to achieve it.  We are further from that reality today then we have ever been.  Amidst all the technological advances, magnificent architectural works of art, Institutions of higher learning, and religious retreats we still find ourselves on the verge of a national breakdown.  Regardless of all the promises from politicians, threats Al Qaeda makes, or good intentions doctors may have only God can correct the mess before us and only our love for Him and one another and His love for us has the power of not failing.
     My advice to my readers is to truly evaluate what it is we value.  Yahoshua said, “where your treasure is there will your heart be also.”7  What do your possessions say you value?  Don’t be deceived into believing you value life if your investments are tied up into things that lead to death.
     Everything we purchase represents our vote. While many of us want to blame the President, or Congress for the state of affairs we have today, I say the buck stops with us.  We are a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.  We affect change with everything we purchase.  If we don’t like what our nation is serving us, we should stop buying it. 
Guarding our most prized possession!  
     Since everything we want to acquire in this life is subject to and takes place within time it is important that we value it.  We have a limited amount of time to achieve what God put us on earth to accomplish. This is why we should make sure that we are spending time with the Father for direction.  Begin teaching our children the value of time. 
      What we eat can shorten the amount of time we have.  Every time we choose to eat a donut, or a pork chop we are choosing to limit both the quality and quantity of our life.  What we eat, say, and do reveal whether or not we choose death or life.  Life or death is in the power of the tongue and indeed, they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.8 Think it not strange that the same thing we use to speak with is also the mechanism by which food gets into us. 
What is functional living? 
     Everything stated up to this point was a necessary foundation to get into the meat and potatoes of the plate. How do we live a more functional life?  Since the greatest commodity we have is time, it stands to reason that our lifestyle should take in consideration a means of living that efficiently makes proper use of it. 
     As I started in this article I told you essential oils were one part of the puzzle.  By incorporating essential oils into our wellness plan we accomplish preserving our time in three distinct ways. 
  1)      Flexibility – The versatility of the oils allows you to incorporate a plan that doesn’t limit you to oral supplementation.  Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential oils can be used in various ways including internally.  (As with taking anything please make sure you do your own due diligence in researching, following precautions if any, and adhering to application directions when using.  An EODR (Essential Oils Desk Reference) can be purchased for further instructions on use.)
2)      Potency – While it is impossible to catch up on our sleep, or make up for not drinking the proper amount of water in a day, therapeutic (Grade A) essential oils provide the most promise for catching up on what we are missing.  For instance one drop of peppermint oil is the equivalent of 26 cups of peppermint tea.9 
3)      Deterrence – Even with the facts mentioned above the greatest potential of these oils are its ability to attack sickness exactly where we would want to, before it starts.  High potency oils such as the high antioxidant power of clove, the immune stimulating qualities of lemon, the stomach protecting benefits of cinnamon, the respiratory protecting properties of eucalyptus and the liver protecting properties of Rosemary, when thrown together in a synergistic blend known as thieves has proven to be 99.6% effective against airborne bacteria.10
    
      Its potency and accuracy as Yah designed them is skin penetrable and can be used in multiple ways addressing multiple problems simultaneously, which makes it affordable as well.  Having the ability for instance to provide the benefit of 26 cups of tea in 1 drop of peppermint oil with none of the side effects of conventional drugs is an obvious plus to its use. 
     Why is this important fact a part of functional living?  Do we have a responsibility to teach our kids how to live responsibly by modeling it before them?  Is our current state of crisis a result of not having the values of the Creator taught to us by our parents?  As I have been told and more recently discovered, what we do will have a far greater impact on our children then what we say.  Do we have a responsibility to be successful in our lives?  Not by the lie Hollywood has sold us, or the wealthy have given us, we need only turn on the television to see the fruit that springs forth from money not guided by a value of the Word of Yah.  I would say we have done a great job of training our children well if the goal has been to lead our posterity to extinction.  It’s the way of righteousness we are having a hard time finding, in our, if it feels good do it, eat it, say it, share it society.  Who needs terrorist from without when most of us are being taken out by the friendly fire from within?
     How does one teach their posterity about proper values?  Do we teach them to value the life of others by consuming and holding on to things that we don’t use or have any use for?  Do we teach them proper values by wasting time, talent, and treasure on things that have no true value?  While many believe the answer is population control, rather then preventing life could the answer to preserving our environment and resources be more appropriately answered by not consuming or hoarding resources that we don’t use?  Is it possible that if we would not fix a plate of food we can’t finish eating or didn’t consume more calories a day then we need, or didn’t live in extravagant homes that are two thirds empty that we would have enough resources to accommodate people being able to have as many children as they desire?  What if with the resources we have above our need we went to these nations and taught people how to fish rather then merely give them fish?  We must also remember the revelation the Messiah shared with us before He died, “the poor ye shall have always.”11  Nevertheless, even those who don’t desire to come out of the impoverished state that they find themselves in have a right to live the life they have, knowing the greatest testament to humanity is at any moment the light bulb can go off inside them and they can change. For many of us were lost and then found, poor in spirit and then revived. 
     Functional living requires guidance by the Word of God both written and spoken, and in our willingness to obey, character is developed.  Do we bless our children as Yah blessed His Son?  When Yahoshua was baptized His father blessed Him, how many of our young men and women would be better off if they received a blessing from their father?    How many of us would be more secure if we received one? 
     We are such a wasteful nation.  We waste space in a house like we waste food on our plates.  We are conditioned to believe it is efficient to have a room called a “living room” that functions as a mausoleum.  While the bible tells us, “He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.”12 Those who are sold out on saving the planet have this one thing correct; they are right about how we waste resources.  The motivation behind our respect for the universe comes from two different places.  Yet, I will say this, God doesn’t make mistakes I cannot fathom God producing more people on earth then the earth could accommodate.  The argument so many who desire to control the population base their premise on is a shortage of resources, when based on how we live alone in the West it would be more accurate to say it is not a shortage of resources that is the problem but rather an abuse of our resources.  When ever we eat more then we need, use more energy, more water, or buy more clothes then we can wear, we are inadvertently taking from someone else. 
     Technology has afforded us the ability to ship items from here to anywhere in the world that someone in need can have.  However, our greed and our abuse of the resources we have been blessed with is the issue, not that there is not space to accommodate the needs of the downtrodden.  I have been convicted this month about so many things that we have that we don’t use.  Many of those things haven’t been used for years and the space that we have that could be used for a more beneficial purpose has only become a place of storage.  Making both the things we have and the space we have it in unusable.  It has got me to thinking about not only the responsibility we have to our family which I discussed earlier, but what responsibility we have concerning the resources Yah has given us. 
     I encourage you if you have wasted space in your home to consider the responsibility you have before you concerning what you are doing with what you got.  Did Yah provide us with abundance so that we could waste the resources He has blessed us with or has He called us to be responsible stewards over the wealth we have?  As passionate as I am against abortion, this month this functional living idea has caused me to really evaluate things differently.  To look at where I bear some responsibility for the state we are in.  Many women who get abortions do so because of the economic weight a baby brings upon them. 
     God called us (the church) to be the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath.13  He has fulfilled His end of the deal, but have we?  In the midst of the economic crisis we face, we have not lacked food in our refrigerator, clothes on our backs, or an income to accomplish anything we choose.  On a national level consider this, one of the issues we have a problem with as Christians in this nation is with welfare.  Yet, welfare became an answer to the economic crisis and taken out of the hands of the church because quite frankly we were not applying it to the needs of our area.  We have taken the funds that were intended to bless God’s people and invested it in things rather then people.  Our greed has prevented us from becoming the kinsmen redeemer we were called to be. 
So this is how the trickle down effect works,
  1) On a personal level – for every room I don’t or can’t use
            2) I waste needed space that can be used to house the poor, provide teaching to the ignorant
                        3) I waste resources because all the space will be heated and air conditioned whether it is used or not.  I waste time because I will need to clean it,
                                    4) The resources I waste means less time to seek Yah four counsel, start a business, help the poor, instead I will have to spend it caring for that portion of the house that is not producing anything, but generating a lot of work.  Thus my resources work against me rather than for me. 
     We are supposed to have answers that work not just within the pages of scripture, but in the pages of our lives.  Since sickness and disease was not so for the believer, the blessings listed in scripture for the believer didn’t focus on health care because if we applied the principles of the word of God we would walk in divine health.  We likewise were expected to provide for the strangers and poor who were among us, which implies that, we would have the resources to give to those in need.  Functional living would allow for us to share space with others, live a life not just within our means, but in a way that is adequately more functional to helping us fulfill our purpose.  Consider the time, talent, and treasure we would harness if we built our lives based on what we needed to fulfill God’s purpose?
     Functional living is based on harnessing your resources based on how you live.  Consider how the choices you make today to live beyond your need will impact the future?  How important is it for us to be good stewards of the resources the Father has blessed us with?  How important it is for our posterity?  Functional living focuses on freeing up resources to be a blessing, and trusting that YAH will bless our faithfulness.
     Functional living allows us the time, provides the contentment that comes from exiting ourselves out of the rat race, the comparison game, and the self-indulging life that many of us have been handed down, and makes it possible for us to focus on what really matters in life.  It makes time for caring for people rather then the buildings they vacate.  Learn valuable skills that can help our children survive when we aren’t around, and show them how to value the gift of Yah that is within them.    We are so busy cursing our kids with worldly things that we don’t have time to bless them with the Word of God.  Functional living allows you to prioritize your time based on those things that should be a priority in your life. 
     How many of us would have spent more time with our children if we didn’t have to work overtime to pay for the things we have acquired? Whether an expensive house, repairs on an old one, etc…  It’s the way we live life that makes it difficult to accommodate growth.  Our misunderstanding of the purpose of wealth is the cause of poverty. 
     How is a country in debt going to help another country in debt?  Sounds to me like the blind leading the blind, in which the end result is they both fall into a ditch.  Having proper priorities are going to be essential to true sustainability.  Not sustainability for its own sake, but sustainability as it relates to learning in this life how to live in the Kingdom of God.  You’d better believe when Yah rules things are going to be fair, just, and some of the principles of communism that we don’t like will be instituted because Yah cares about community, while some of the principles of free enterprise will be instituted because our position in Him will be based on every man’s work.  Those who obeyed Him more faithfully will be given more then those who obeyed Him least faithfully.14  The awesome part is the riches you didn’t acquire is not what determines your prize it is what you did with the riches He did give you that determines your prize.  Functional living teaches us how to connect with the Creator,  prioritize wealth, and love all that He has created.   For these reasons we should strive to be conservative with our spending, and liberal with our love for Yah and one another.
1 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.  (Luk 21:26)
5 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
(2Co 11:3)
6 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
(1Ti 6:17)
7 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
(Mat 6:21)
8 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
(Pro 18:21)

(Luk 3:11)
13 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:
(Deu 28:13)
14Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
(Mat 5:19)

Read Your Labels
By Beloved Bondservant
 
Modal
     Have you found yourself having rashes in private places? Have you noticed itching, redness, or irritation? While it could be a yeast infection or some other disease, or if you have had it checked out and your doctor can’t figure out what it is, check your closet? Have you purchased a new pair of pants? Purchased new bedding or bought a new blouse?  While modal is being labeled the “wonder” fabric, your skin might react back as to wondering what is in it.  This fabric is gaining popularity over its cotton counterpart because it is less likely to shrink when washed and its softness to the touch.  Nevertheless, might I suggest that you not get rid of your vintage 100% cotton just yet.  Modal created in Austria is made strictly from beechwood – but is considered bio-based rather than natural because, though the raw materials used to make it are natural, they are heavily processed with a variety of toxic chemicals, including formaldehyde when manufactured in some countries of origin.1
     Modal is used alone or with other fibers (often cotton or spandex) in household items such as towels, bathrobes, underwear and bedsheets.2 So why buy it?  Here are the listed advantages:
Like rayon, it is soft, smooth and breathes well
Its texture is similar to cotton or silk
Its cool and very absorbent
Like cotton, it dyes easily and becomes color-fast
Its resistant to shrinkage
Less likely to fade or pill as a result of friction
Stays softer in hard water laundering
Drapes well and keeps its shape 

Here are the reported allergic Responses:

They are many. The following list is not complete but will give you an idea of what to watch for if sudden symptoms develop after wearing or being exposed to Modal.
Skin reactions (itching, blisters, hives, welts, etc.)
Headache accompanied with brain-fog
Swollen glands
Widespread muscle aches (not previously experienced)
Widespread muscle aches (previously existing such in fibromyalgia patients)
Disorientation
Respiratory symptoms (bronchitis, asthma-like symptoms, etc.) Sinus infections
    I don’t know if you check the internet often but you may find that your vintage clothing may turn out to be a wall street winner in the future as many people begin to find that all these new scientific innovations have their drawbacks. Of course the word of God clearly identifies the defilement involved when we combine unholy mixtures through intermingling fabrics.3 
     It is important to remember that the allergy is not due to the natural products used to make the product, but rather in the toxic chemicals used to combine the material, usually spandex, rayon, etc.. with cotton. While the ingredients are derived from a natural source, there is a chemical process they undergo to become the soft fabric that you wear on your body. I know some people may think I am going overboard with a lot of this, and may be thinking right about now, oh no, you mean its not just what I eat or the make up I wear, or the soda I drink, but even the clothes I wear? That’s right. I always thought it a strange thing anyway when I began to see “organic” cotton. Since when has it been necessary to state that the cotton used to produce a product was organic? Since the biotech ‘geniuses’ and I use that term loosely decided they could improve on God’s design by producing their man made engineered cotton and chose to pedal it as if it was the same as the original. The reason they have to say organic is because it is no longer organic, but rather a concoction produced from the laboratory of Monsanto, Bayer, or the like.  Bottom line is its better to stick with the natural.

      The fabric Yah made not only is healthier for your skin but has been found to be beneficial in other ways as well.  According to MV Style natural fibers have the following benefits:4

Organic Cotton
  • The arrangement of the cellulose gives cotton a good degree of strength, durability, and absorbency.
  • Unlike synthetics, it doesn’t pill, emit static electricity, prematurely age, or trap perspiration.
  • People with allergies and chemical sensitivity especially benefit because conventional cotton may retain harmful toxic residues.
Linen (Flax)

Linen is a material made from the fibers of the flax plant. We believe that no other type of material can be more comfortable and more satisfying than linen, for several reasons:

  • Highly absorbent – Can absorb and lose water rapidly, quickly removing perspiration from the skin.
  • Good conductor of heat – In winter it keeps the heat in; in summer it feels cool to the touch and creates a feeling of coolness and comfort.
  • Easy care for the long-term – Resists dirt and stains, has no lint or pilling tendency, and can be dry cleaned, machine washed or steamed. Withstands high temperatures and yields minimal initial shrinkage. Gets softer the more it is washed, and doesn’t fade.
  • Strongest of the vegetable fibers – Has 2 to 3 times the strength of cotton, enduring up to 20 years of use.
  • Unique antibacterial qualities – Linen contains natural antiseptic that prevents bacterial growth. Helps kill microbes, thereby preventing fungal diseases, inflammation, and damaged skin infection.
  • Environmental filter – To some point protects from a chemically aggressive environment, noise, dust, radiation, gamma rays, and electromagnetic waves.
  • Strongest energy of all fibers – Creates a feeling of calm, concentration and depth of thought. Psychotherapists agree that linen fibers have an ability to protect a person from depression, nervous and psychotic breakdowns.
Silk
  • The most hypoallergenic of all fabrics because of its natural protein structure.
  • An all-climate fabric, silk is warm and cozy in winter, without being bulky underneath, and comfortably cool in warmer temps. Highly absorbent: it can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling damp, so it absorbs perspiration while letting your skin breathe.
  • Relatively robust and strong – Its smooth surface resists soil and odors well; is wrinkle and tear resistant, and dries quickly. It easily competes with steel yarn in tensile strength.
  • Takes color well; washes easily; and is easy to work with in spinning, weaving, knitting, and sewing. Mixes well with other animal and vegetable fibers.
Wool

The utility of the fiber itself is evident in cold-weather and high-performance applications, offering:

  • Superior breathability
  • Temperature regulation
  • Inherent antimicrobial properties

3 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together. Deut. 22:11

A Hebrew Moment
Vav
Resembling the picture of a peg this sixth letter of the Hebrew Alephbet has the concrete meaning of peg and the abstract meaning to add or secure.  Unless added to the front of a Hebrew word in which this letter means and. The numeric value for this character is six.  This beautiful character points to how through the piercing of the Messiah with a nail on a tree we were joined together even as a nail joins together two objects.  It also speaks of how the Messiah secured eternity for us with His blood on that cross. 
Ka-vah
To Bind Together
Written in proper Hebrew order the characters above represent the actual character order in the picture from right to left, while the letters below it represent the English order of the Hebrew alephbet.  I chose this word because it so eloquently reveals the picture of what our Savior did for us.  The letter means to cycle, revolve, or make a revolution.  The other two characters we have already discussed their meanings.  When you bring the pictures together its abstract meaning is “to bind together” while its concrete meaning is “what comes after the nail”.  Because what connects us as family is based on what happened after the nails were pierced into the hands and feet of our Savior.

Renaissance Ronin

Usually I provide a quote to grow on, but in light of the topic this month I thought it would be better to provide some resources that provide some practical food for thought concerning living off the grid.  Our current lifestyle is more maintenance then God required us to deal with.  We are not learning the lesson that to whom much is given much is required fast enough.  Rennaisance Ronin website is a very practical website that helps you realistically discover what is doable on a budget and that one can practically do themselves.  Indeed be advised in order to make alternative living options work for you especially on an affordable budget you will have to begin using your own hands to make it affordable.  However, the richness involved in learning how to fish for yourself is its own reward and by making it a family project you train your kids how to live a more sustainable lifestyle.
