Position for God encounter

Position for God encounter by Ivan Ho    29 Mar 2021   Position for God encounter God encounter is not a chance encounter. Rather, it involves purposeful positioning. When God first appeared to Samuel, the boy did not know who was speaking. He had to position himself attentively in order to hear from God. When the woman with the issue of blood heard that Jesus was in town, she had to purposefully move to where Jesus was in order to touch his garment. The moment she did that, she was set free. The disciples had to position themselves in the upper room to wait for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost. God is near you but unless you realise His presence and position yourself accurately, you will not encounter his presence. There is a meeting place between you and God made possible by Christ . When you purposefully move across to that God appointed place, you will...

Bad food Bad mood

Bad Food Bad Mood Many people crave for junk food when they are bored or depressed. In the long run, however, junk food is the cause of depression, according to studies.   Eating junk food increases the risk of becoming depressed, a study has found, prompting calls for doctors to routinely give dietary advice to patients as part of their treatment for depression. In contrast, those who follow a traditional Mediterranean diet are much less likely to develop depression because the fish, fruit, nuts and vegetables that diet involves help protect against Britain’s commonest mental health problem, the research suggests. Original article: junk food raises risk of depression   Researchers at the University of Melbourne examined over 1000 randomly selected women, ages 20-93, assessing for symptoms of depression and anxiety and comparing “traditional” diets to “western” diets. They...

Junk food and inflammation

on Mar 27, 2021 in Health | 0 comments

Junk Food and Inflammation Diets high in sugar and processed food make your immune system more aggressive, raising the level of inflammatory chemicals in your body. The harmful effects of junk food last a long time, even if you don’t eat it very often. Fascinating new research has shown the body reacts to a junk food meal in a similar manner as to a bacterial infection. This finding comes from a recent study from the University of Bonn. Eating unhealthy food makes your immune defenses more aggressive in the long term. Even if you switch to a healthy diet, the inflammation generated in your body through regular immune challenges becomes heightened. Such long term immune changes may raise the risk of arteriosclerosis and type 2 diabetes, both diseases linked to excess inflammation and a Western diet.  Read more on  junk food creates more inflammation Inflammatory bowel disease linked to...

Dream of beds in street corner

Dream of beds in street corner by Ivan Ho on 25 Mar 2021   This morning I had a couple of dreams which I initially thought were really weird. In the first dream I am walking on the street where I see a row of beds lying on the street corner just outside the pavement. My bed is right at the corner. I can also see someone I recognise but not yet met in person lying two beds next to me on my right. There is no one on the bed next to me. Then I walk over and ly down on my own bed in the corner, looking at the person across the bed in the middle. Afterwards God gave me the interpretation: Destiny is just around the corner, it is getting nearer. We need to rest in God and stay in our own place of assignment.  I also believe the empty bed in between is the place of meeting, the place of God encounter. Position for God encounter  

Single minded faith

Single minded faith by Ivan Ho 14 Mar 2021   And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me. And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.Mark 10:48‭-‬52 KJV   Jesus asked the blind man: “What do you want me to do for you?” I’m sure Jesus knew what the blind man wanted as it was quite obvious. So why did Jesus ask him what he wanted the Son of God...
