Methodists begin fasting period – The Time has come Ragone

I have been saying all along that each of you christian members are to ask church leaders to call for fasting the Methodist church has started it, go and sak you leaders of your denominations to follow suit nad fast and pray for the nation you will see Bainimarama will start running. 

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

Update: 5:32PM MORE than 5000 Methodist Church of Fiji Suva division members will be fasting, praying and yaqona and tobacco taboo in asking for divine leadership in the nation, church and vanua this month.

Suva Divisional Superintendent Reverend Sakaraia Koli said this would be conducted in all the divisions in the country and they had started theirs on July 1.

“It is a whole month of  fasting from 6am to 12pm , 24 hours chain prayer and no yaqona and smoking for committed members,” he said.

“We also have a torch that will be carried around the nine circuits in the division where they will conduct their 24 hours chain prayer while the torch is at their circuit.”

He said this was a directive from the church and there were a few issues being brought up by the church for them to pray for during the month.

Mr Koli said the members have been asked to pray for  divine leadership in the nation, vanua and church, allow for a cleansing in the country, peace to prevail, for the will of God to be done in the country and for the spiritual lives of the members to be strengthened.

“The fasting will help in asking the Lord to  move spiritually in the prayers of the members who will be praying for the  whole month,” he said.

Mr Koli said the chain prayer had started from the Suva division and the prayer torch was taken to Nauluvatu circuit and given to the members at Vunivau Church last week.

He said the torch would be taken up by him, Divisional steward Enele Malele and the Nauluvatu Circuit minister Savenaca Wilson and his members to be handed over to Tamavua Circuit minister Reverend Maikali Nakuta and his congregation at Ro Kuboulevu Church in Tamavua at 4am tomorrow.

He said the torch would be at the circuit for the next four days and 24 hour chain prayer sessions would continue until 6am on Sunday morning when the torch would be taken to the Navukavu Circuit.

“The prayer torch would be there for two days before it is taken to Burenitu Circuit then  to Nadera Circuit  and from there to Raiwaqa Circuit for another two days then to Raiwai Circuit for another two days before it is taken to Vunidilo Church in the Muanikau Circuit for another two days.

“On July 31, Muanikau circuit  minister Apete Toko and his congregation would take the torch to the Centenary Church where a thanksgiving service would be conducted to mark the end of the prayer and fasting,”he said.

He said everything was on schedule and police officers have been accompanying the church members while taking the prayer torch from one circuit to another.

Mr Koli said the church had  informed the divisions of the fasting and prayer month but it was the divisional superintendents that designed their own programs for the circuits to follow during the month

    The benefits of fasting must be preceded by a look at the body’s progression when deprived of food. Due to the lack of incoming energy, the body must turn to its own resources, a function called autolysis.

    Autolysis is the breaking down of fat stores in the body in order to produce energy. The liver is in charge of converting the fats into a chemical called a ketone body, “the metabolic substances acetoacetic acid and beta-hydroxybutyric acid”, and then distributing these bodies throughout the body via the blood stream. “When this fat utilization occurs, free fatty acids are released into the blood stream and are used by the liver for energy.” The less one eats, the more the body turns to these stored fats and creates these ketone bodies, the accumulation of which is referred to as ketosis. Detoxification is the foremost argument presented by advocates of fasting.

    “Detoxification is a normal body process of eliminating or neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph glands, and skin.”

    This process is precipitated by fasting because when food is no longer entering the body, the body turns to fat reserves for energy.

    “Human fat is valued at 3,500 calories per pound,” a number that would lead one to believe that surviving on one pound of fat every day would provide a body with enough energy to function normally.

    These fat reserves were created when excess glucose and carbohydrates were not used for energy or growth, not excreted, and therefore converted into fat. When the fat reserves are used for energy during a fast, it releases the chemicals from the fatty acids into the system which are then eliminated through the aforementioned organs. Chemicals not found in food but absorbed from one’s environment, such as DDT, are also stored in fat reserves that may be released during a fast. One fasting advocate tested his own urine, feces and sweat during an extended fast and found traces of DDT in each.

    A second prescribed benefit of fasting is the healing process that begins in the body during a fast. During a fast energy is diverted away from the digestive system due to its lack of use and towards the metabolism and immune system.

    The healing process during a fast is precipitated by the body’s search for energy sources. Abnormal growths within the body, tumors and the like, do not have the full support of the body’s supplies and therefore are more susceptible to autolysis. Furthermore, “production of protein for replacement of damaged cells (protein synthesis) occurs more efficiently because fewer ‘mistakes’ are made by the DNA/RNA genetic controls which govern this process.” A higher efficiency in protein synthesis results in healthier cells, tissues and organs.

    his is one reason that animals stop eating when they are wounded, and why humans lose hunger during influenza. Hunger has been proven absent in illnesses such as gastritis, tonsillitis and colds.

    Therefore, when one is fasting, the person is consciously diverting energy from the digestive system to the immune system.

    In addition, there is a reduction in core body temperature. This is a direct result of the slower metabolic rate and general bodily functions. Following a drop in blood sugar level and using the reserves of glucose found in liver glycogen, the basal metabolic rate (BMR) is reduced in order to conserve as much energy within the body as can be provided.

    Growth hormones are also released during a fast, due to the greater efficiency in hormone production.

    Finally, the most scientifically proven advantage to fasting is the feeling of rejuvenation and extended life expectancy. Part of this phenomenon is caused by a number of the benefits mentioned above. A slower metabolic rate, more efficient protein production, an improved immune system, and the increased production of hormones contributes to this long-term benefit of fasting. In addition to the Human Growth Hormone that is released more frequently during a fast, an anti-aging hormone is also produced more efficiently. (7) “The only reliable way to extend the lifespan of a mammal is under-nutrition without malnutrition.” (5) A study was performed on earthworms that demonstrated the extension of life due to fasting. The experiment was performed in the 1930s by isolating one worm and putting it on a cycle of fasting and feeding. The isolated worm outlasted its relatives by 19 generations, while still maintaining its youthful physiological traits. The worm was able to survive on its own tissue for months. Once the size of the worm began to decrease, the scientists would resume feeding it at which point it showed great vigor and energy. “The life-span extension of these worms was the equivalent of keeping a man alive for 600 to 700 years.”

    In conclusion, it seems that there are many reasons to consider fasting as a benefit to one’s health. The body rids itself of the toxins that have built up in our fat stores throughout the years. The body heals itself, repairs all the damaged organs during a fast. And finally there is good evidence to show that regulated fasting contributes to longer life. However, many doctors warn against fasting for extended periods of time without supervision. There are still many doctors today who deny all of these points and claim that fasting is detrimental to one’s health and have evidence to back their statements. The idea of depriving a body of what society has come to view as so essential to our survival in order to heal continues to be a topic of controversy.

    Fasting is something between you and God. It is not something to publicise like it is done here by the Methodists. I am sure that John Wesley will not be too proud of his followers as they are not being biblical in their actions.

    Jesus himself told about the pharisees who will try to announce their deeds for all to know to go into their secret chamber to pray and fast.

    On the carrying of the torch, I ask, Is this the olympic or what? We know that the Catholics carry the cross to announce their sorrow to all. Do we really need to go through all these rituals to please God?

    We are continously heading in the wrong direction folks. Our religious leaders have been influenced by the training they go through, by the organisations they subscribe to, like the Fiji Council of Churches where the catholic influence is strong, and more so is that though they know their Bible inside out, they refuse to humble themselves and follow it. More important to them is to please their fellow men rather than God.

    I advise my friends to be more independent, read and study your Bible and the Holy Spirit will guide us to do the right thing that is pleasing to Jehovah God.

    Hey guys do they “Fasting & Prayer get togethers” include meals?

    I like JW philosophy – ain’t giving up the beer.

    ..on the subject of fasting – I now see why them Muslims buggers get all the action – they fast for a month every year.

    BTW – all you guys with diabetes better watch out.

    In the book of Isaiah Chapter 58, God is speaking to the people of Israel about fasting. He told them that they were fasting for the wrong reasons when they were fasting and praying for reasons such as victory in war, wealth, and other worldly reasons.

    Isaiah related to Israel that the primary reason for fasting was to “deal thy bread to the hungry”, meaning to fast for the poor, the sick, and the needy. If the people were to fast primarily for this reason, then God promised them health, wealth and “then thy countenance shall be as noonday….and thou shalt cry, and God shall answer, ‘Here I am’ ” and a host of many other blessings would be in store for the people of Israel.

    Just my two-cent thought.

  8. Ika Soata Says:

    In The Book of Esther, Mordechai initiated a national fast after hearing of a conspiracy against his people. I suppose God heard the prayers of those people who were fasting as a group in response to what was clearly for them a national catastrophe. God answered their prayers favourably.

    In our case, whatever happens, may God’s will be done for our nation.

  9. True Weslian Says:

    To vakatakilai, I was praying for the very people like you. Those who criticise the good work of our leaders in initiating and touching our lives in such a life changing event to change our hearts and our souls in praying for our nation, vanua and lotu.

    Fasting and prayer is truly a thing between person and God. But it is not forced or publicised but the Methodist church leaders have given us a choice whether to follow this period of fasting and prayer. Not one is forced to do it and I believe its been life changing especially for a youth like me.

    May God bless you and May God Bless Fiji.

    The Health Benefits of Fasting

    A study is now under way at America’s National Institute of Aging, in Washington. Two groups are being fed identical diets of burgers, ice cream and so on — eaten by the average American. One group is required to eat all they need between 4p.m. and 7p.m., and then nothing until the same time the following day. The aim is to find out whether consuming all one’s daily calories in a couple of hours is better for health. Dr Mark Mattson, chief of the Laboratory of Neurosciences at the Institute leading the research, says it is only recently, in evolutionary terms, that humans have eaten three meals a day. Our ancestors were fortunate to eat once a day and often went for days without food.

    FROM AN EVOLUTIONARY POINT OF VIEW, OUR BODIES ARE ACCUSTOMED TO FEASTING AND FASTING RATHER THAN GRAZING.

    Three or more meals a day may be good for young people, but not for adults. This idea — that we need to pay attention to the frequency of our eating as well as the amount consumed — was popularized in America in The Warrior Diet by Ori Hofmekler, in 2002. It is based on the idea that we should eat like early humans, consuming all daily calories in the early evening.

    The Warrior Diet is now a major brand in the US, used to market books, products and seminars. But it has received no attention in the UK. Its website proclaims:

    “Humans are primarily destined to follow certain feeding cycles and physical activities. In accordance with the ‘Thrifty Genes theory’, scientists speculate that humans have adapted to survive better during cycles of feast and famine, action and rest. The current epidemic of obesity, diabetes and impotence bears testimony to the fact that humans today have betrayed their biological destiny.”

    Nutritional Sex Control & Rejuvenation

    Since time immemorial, religious devotees abstained from meat or fasted for the purpose of controlling sexual impulses, and this explains the customs of abstention from meat and fasting during certain religious holidays. The ancient Orphics, Pythagoreans, Essenes, Gnostics, neo-Platonists, and Manichaeans all practiced vegetarianism in order to succeed in the practice of continence, which they regarded as essential for achieving the highest degree of physical and spiritual regeneration.

    Pythagoras, who was born a physiologist and a moral reformer, was the first to claim that protein foods augment sexual inclinations and that a low-protein, strictly vegetarian diet was essential for all who wish to live in continence and experience the beneficial effects of this practice in leading to better brain nutrition and in heightening intellectual and spiritual powers.

    Pythagoras taught that there was a direct connection between the semen and the brain and that loss of semen weakens the brain, while its conservation improves the brain’s nutrition, since the substances thus conserved act as brain nutrients.
    We now know that this is a physiological fact which the intuition of Pythagoras foresaw centuries ago since lecithin, an organic phosphorized fat which is a chief constituent of brain and nerve tissue, is an essential component of the semen and is lost with it. This means that the greater the seminal excretion, the more lecithin is lost from the blood and consequently from the brain; whereas conservation of semen through continence leads to better lecithin (organic phosphorus) brain nutrition and increased intellectual energy. Since a low-protein diet diminishes the tendency of seminal excretion, it helps conserve lecithin for brain nutrition.

    Since it is reasonable to identify spirituality with the regeneration of higher brain centers — the pituitary and pineal glands, the latter organ being richer in lecithin than any other part of the body — we can understand the reason why religious orders have always insisted on continence as a prime requisite for those who wish to live a spiritual life.

    Among the Pythagoreans, who included some of the greatest mathematicians, astronomers, philosophers, and physicians of antiquity, not only meat but all foods rich in protein, including concentrated vegetable proteins, were prohibited as inimical to reaching the desired state of continence. . . . While Pythagoreans married and bore children, they practiced continence as a physiological discipline of value to body and brain. . . .
    St. Jerome wrote: ‘The forge of Vulcan and the volcanoes of Vesuvius and Mt. Olympus do not burn more than those young men who live on succulent meats and indulge in wine.’ . . . ‘Wine and meat blunt the soul,’ wrote Plutarch in defense of Pythagorean vegetarianism. . . .

    Havelock Ellis notes the mild sexual feeling among the Irish who live chiefly on potatoes and buttermilk, as against the extreme sexuality of the French who live on a highly stimulating diet of meat, sea foods, and wine. In view of Tissot’s and Deslandes’ observations on the effects of an alkaline diet in reducing mucous membrane irritation in the prostatic urethra, which is the seat of sexual feeling, it is interesting to refer to Dr. Hindhede’s observations which have shown that a potato diet has a marked alkalizing effect on the blood and helps it to counteract and neutralize uric acid. In view of . . . the action of uric acid as an aphrodisiac, we can understand the reasons for the diminished sexuality of the potato-eating Irish as compared with the meat-and-wine-using French. . . .
    Speaking of the type of diet best suited to reduce sexual irritability, Dr. Napheys writes:
    ‘From ancient times, it has been well known that a wholly or chiefly vegetable diet favors the subjugation of the passions and hence was recommended to persons of violent desires and enjoined on celibate orders of priesthood. Particularly those vegetables which contain a large percentage of vegetable fiber and water, as cabbage, turnips, beets, melons, and carrots, and those which contain acids and some soporific principle as sorrel, sour fruits, lettuce chicory, endive, and other salads are reported to have especial virtues in this direction.’

    There is a definite relation between constipation, with its associated autointoxication, and sexual craving. This results from two causes: direct physical pressure of the overdistended colon on the one side and the full bladder on the other side on the seminal vesicles (or uterus in the female) which lies sandwiched in between, and the irritating action of the intestinal toxins formed through the decay of protein remnants, which act as stimulants to the sexual centers, in addition to uric acid and other foods formed through their metabolism. Since the diet recommended by Dr. Napheys will help overcome constipation and autointoxication, by introducing plenty of vegetable cellulose into the intestinal tract, it is clear that it will, for this reason, aid to counteract sexual tendencies. Intestinal cleanliness and freedom from autointoxication through protein putrefaction is the first step in sexual control. On this subject, the following quotation by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, director of the Battle Creek Sanitarium, who for over sixty years was a strong advocate of a low protein diet and also a believer in the physiological value of continence, writes:
    ‘Flesh, condiments, eggs, tea, coffee, chocolate, and all other stimulants have a powerful influence directly upon the blood; and through nervous sympathy with the brain, the passions are aroused. Poor blood, filled with crude, poorly digested food, is irritating to the nervous system and especially to those extremely delicate nerves which govern the reproductive function. Irritation provokes congestion; congestion excites sexual desires; excited passions increase the local disturbances; and thus each reacts upon the other, ever increasing the injury and liability of future damage.

    Thank you True Weslyian for you enthusiasm, you are our future and I have a great respect for the young who show interest in the events we are going through. This is about our future as a race (Fijian).

    I have the view that our leaders, not only religious but also political and our traditional and we as the people are at times following blindly even when what they are telling us to do is wrong.

    I have taught myself to stand back a little and analyse, look at what the Bible says, see what History has to say about similar events in the past and then make a decision. This has made me at times look like going “against the flow” but I’d rather be independent than to be following blindly.

    Why I spoke up against the fasting organised by the Methodist leaders is this.

    One, they should have contacted each denomination leaders and without any publicity we all together as a common race do this together. Modechai contacted all the Jews of the land to fast because it was the Jewish race that was under threat.

    Two, I just do not see the significance of the torch. If it is not Biblical, then I just resign myself that the whole process can be easily derailed by Satan. What other publicity are they after? They want the press to get hold of this story and blow it up in the media so that they can be seen as the Initiators?
    These are some new things that have slowly crept into the Methodist church which were not practiced in the past. What we should ask is, Where are our Church leaders bringing all these new traditions?

    I used to see our ministers in the past with their coats and white round collars and that is what I as a young person usually picture our ministers to be. Today I see our ministers being clothed up in the ministerial garb as if the Pope himself is there in our midst. Have the Methodist tradition being influenced by others.

    True Weslyian, I appreciate your concern for the Fijian race and like myself, I will continue to fight for us till the end. But I also realise that we are fighting not human flesh but principalities. Without the Holy Spirit to open our eyes to allow us to see the enemy and their plans which are being carried out by our own brothers and sisters, some unknowingly, we will all end up in the ditch.

    The Israelites were punished because of their leaders being led astray and the people followed blindly.

  17. Budhau Says:

    Listen you guys – this ain’t about the Fijian race or Christianity and all that crap.

    This is about liberty, freedom, human rights etc.

    Stop making this into race/religion based issue.

  18. Striker Says:

    @Vakatakilai: What’s dress (collars etc) got to do with God’s righteousness? Did you know that robes were worn by John Wesley? So what are you driving at? All you’ve done is show ignorance. Please don’t infect us with your lack of knowledge

  19. vakatakilai Says:

    Well Budhau, When you talk about liberty, freedom and human right you need to bring it down to the context we are applying it to.

    To me, in the case of events taking place in our beloved country, I am looking at liberty in the perspective of the Fijian race which is currently under attack. As for freedom, the Fijians need to be free to have their say about their lifestyle, traditions etc. On human rights, we also as Fijians have our rights.

    This New World Order recognise that there is a lot of power in the indigenous rights and that is why they are targetting places where the indigenous population is still strong.

    Whether you are a Fijian, Fiji Indian, or whatever ethnicity, we should be aware that what the NWO is planning will still go ahead and will result in one world leader, one world currency, one world constitution etc.

    When this happens, Budhau and his follower will realise that human rights, freedom and liberty they are championing is one of the tools of the devil that has been placed in the system sometime back to combat indigenous power, loosen our grip on our lands, and most importantly cloud our minds and liberate us from Jehovah God who we have relied upon to lead us along earth’s dark hours.

  21. tosotiko Says:

    At times like this when somebody starts something good, we should get together in support. Fijians are always good in expressing their independence where it is crucial to work for unity. For goodness’ sake, our future is being molested right before our very eyes.

    The Methodist Suva Circuit have started something good because it is concerned about the same things we are concerned about. You may not support their method or some of their methods but look at the big picture. Work out a way in which you can support the cause without compromising your standards. Same as Jese Waqalekaleka – he is being honest about what he cannot give up but he is one with the cause.

    Thank you Methodists of Suva Circuit!

  22. Mark Manning Says:

    I think some of the Methodist leaders should fast themselves to death . This would be good thing for Fijian society given that some have involved themselves with these traitors in the I.G.

  23. Belijo Says:

    Congratulations to the Methodists for their suggestions of fasting. I believe they did it because they loved their country and the most peaceful and effective Christian way of doing this is to seek their God through this means. Just as Mordecai asked his people the Jews to fast, the Methodist leaders have sought their church denomination members to do the same. These leaders know their flock and would definitely NOT KNOW the other Christian denomination members due to the differences in the way denominations worship. I believe the call to fast is A WAY of seeking The Almighty’s divine help and intervention in these difficult times in our beloved Fiji. So rather than be critical of the Methodists move to pray and fast, I suggest we pray and fast in whatever way the Holy Spirit guides us to do. Secondly, the torch to me is a reminder of the burning bush which Moses encountered when God spoke to him commanding to lead His people in His ways. It to me is also a reminder of the raging fire that engulfed Shadrach, Meshach and Abendigo but without hurting them the fire, a sign of hope and victory for believers.and finally, it represents the fire poured down from heaven on the day Jesus, the Son of God ascended into heaven. It is the fire of the Holy Spirit poured upon all who seek the Lord and wish to worship Him in all entirety. May the period of fasting be blessed by our Heavenly Father. God Bless You All.

    You shouldn’t test the Lord !
    I think all Fijians should get off their fat bums and do something about this coup coup clan and go on a fast , perhaps it would reduce the diabetes in the Islands .

  25. Waraka Says:

    So Mark Manning, will you be the first to get off your fat ass and fast, or are you a non Fijian who just loves sticking his nose into Fijian affairs, and stirring shit!

  26. Mark Manning Says:

    I like challenging peoples perceptions of thinks and have them think outside the square for the own benefit . Isn’t that what the illegal junta is doing . I don’t have to be an outsider to stir up shit or stick my nose into Fijian’s affairs , you have enough in the military doing that for you now as they destroy the GCC , the Government , the economy , their Children’s future , ( except for their own Children ) . Yes I’m an outsider , but I have not abducted , raped , tortured , detained nor murdered my fellow citizens .
    And yes , it’s only Fijians who can win this fight and I am referring partly to the report that too many are over weight , but we have the same problem in Australia in that regard . So , I want you fired up to take action , as it’s only a matter of time before Frank refuses to have elections at all . And if you wait for that to happen , it won’t matter if you stay seated or not .

  27. Neutral Says:

    Glory to GOD for the initiative. Hope the rest of Methodists follow suit. July is not yet complete and already we have seen the effect . 3 PS’s in the IG have gone, today it’s Parmesh , who’s next?

  28. LUVfiji Says:

    Yesterday it was Parmesh, today its the chandra guy at Youth and Sports. Who shall it be tomorrow?

    PSC says it is already looking for a replacement for Parmesh. Is it likely that they will go for experience, (with a capital E!) and bring back the man who has worked directly under all Fijian prime ministers this country has had? Nah, he is way past his ‘use-by’ date. Or maybe wise at FT can whisper something to us!

    Prophetic Utterance through Vincent Xavier

    November 8th, 2007

    This is what the Sovereign Lord say’s; on this day, November 8th 2007, a work of restoration has begun within the ranks of the UNCOMPROMISINGLY RIGHTEOUS. These are the elect in the earth that I have reserved unto this hour. This work of restoration that has begun will culminate in exactly fourteen months. At that time this remnant will be walking in the fullness of their destiny and calling, functioning with all the power and authority they will ever need to execute their offices in the earth and in the heavenlies.
    This mountain top of destiny will afford the righteous with every provision and every good thing. They shall walk upon the mountaintops rejoicing and skipping forth like the calves from the stalls. The air will be clean and fresh and the skies marvelously blue. A fresh wind of powerful anointing will carry them to glorious places beyond their greatest expectations.
    These are the princes and rulers who have been found worthy to rule and reign with me within my Kingdom. And rule and reign they shall do! These are my glorious ones, the overcomers at the end of the age. This is the end of the age, the period of time spoken of in my word. It is a time of unprecedented opportunity in the midst of unprecedented crisis.

    These be the days of EXPLOITS! These are the days wherein my beloved ones shall arise and shine forth out of the midst of obscurity and darkness and appear without fault or blemish before my throne, and are worthy to stand in my presence and execute the judgments that have been written!
    I have said it! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! I will not tolerate the world systems any more! I am here to make war with the beast governments of the earth! I am come to cast down dominions and authorities! I am come to cast down to the ground those who have been seated in heavenly places in the lower atmosphere. I am come to seal up all things! I am come to finish the work! I am releasing my mighty ones and I am turning the world systems upside down! I am bringing my rule and dominion into the earth and I am shattering the works of darkness.
    During the next fourteen months my body shall be revealed. My body shall move according to my divine will and plan. Each member will operate according to the impulse of my heart. During the next fourteen months a total breakdown will occur around the world. However, in the midst of this collapse my people shall be preserved. For I have prepared habitations where I will nourish my elect until the day of release.
    Everything concerning my uncompromisingly righteous elect is going vertical! The climb will be rugged and teamwork required, but the reward of your faith shall be great, for it is by faith that you now understand that from this day forth a new level of restoration is being accomplished within you.

This increase shall glorify the HEAD! Bondages shall be destroyed! Listen to what I say for I am speaking concerning individuals, families, Churches, towns, cities, states and nations! I am destroying the demonic influence over your life and over all that is in the earth! For the earth is the Lords and the FULLNESS thereof! As I increase your power I will increase your influence in the work place, in the City, in the field and as I do your harvest shall abound. For I will give you favor among men as you will walk and live in my favor say’s the LORD! Yes, you shall INCREASE IN EXPONENTIAL WAYS! What has taken a long process shall end and a sudden impact of glorious power shall cause you to ascend to heights beyond the limitations of your greatest thoughts.

    For my ways are not your ways and my thoughts are not your thoughts says the Lord, for as the heaven is higher than the earth, so are my ways HIGHER that your ways. For I am the Almighty God who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all you can ask or think! Through my Strength you will know that you need not any institution in the world to be your WAY into fulfillment, for I AM THE WAY, says the Lord. I will bring you to the heights of Glory and there you shall rule and reign over all the earth! You are my kings and priests and I have ordained you in this hour to go forth and bear fruit! Your fruit bearing season has been slight and slow in the coming but now, watch now as your fruit shall abound in exponential ways. You say to me what is EXPONENTIAL! It is the SUDDEN GROWTH AND RAPID ADVANCEMENT INTO THAT WHICH I HAVE DESIGNED FOR YOUR LIFE, AND THE FULFILLMENT OF MY PURPOSE AND PLAN IN THE EARTH IN THIS HOUR! I want to Blow your mind with the knowledge of what I am able to do! I want you to understand that I am FINISHING MY WORK AND CUTTING IT SHORT! I am launching you with divine, supercharged and massive forces of energy, so HOLD ON! You will not be able to tolerate the speed in which you shall be advanced in this hour, but will need to rely and depend upon me so much so that it will only be by my grace that you arrive without being utterly destroyed by the force in which you shall be advanced!

    EXTREME:

    You say this all sounds so extreme! And so it is for you have come to the extreme hour, the time in which all things are coming to their outer limits! All things are going beyond the lines of limitation and are exceeding that which has hindered. For I am raising up a bold people in this hour who will take the KINGDOM BY VIOLENCE! Their Violence shall propel them into realms of Glory that will enter into areas of authority. Even as My servant Moses entered into Egypt, so shall my Bold ones carry with them the ROD of my divine power and Authority which is the name above all names! Through my name and faith in my name shall they release the plagues upon those who will not surrender their will to mine. The strongest of men will cry out for the rocks and wish to die! Yes, extreme power that belongs to MY CHURCH AND MY CHURCH ONLY! That which you have seen in the natural with physical weapons shall pale in comparison to the weapons of mass destruction I am sending forth in this hour! I am launching my missiles and arrows and have unsheathed my Sword!

    I have launched my SPEARHEAD and it shall strike the heart of the Satanic authorities unto their death and destruction! Again I will say to you that DEATH is the LAST enemy and I have an army that has been prepared in internal ways to destroy this last enemy! What will be the UNDOING of this final enemy? The release and manifestation of my kingdom in the earth! The heavens shall be rolled back like a curtain and My presence shall appear! There will be no SUN in that DAY for my Light and Glory shall illuminate the Universe and every dimension of life that has been created! Yes, EXTREME times have come and I am the one who is calling it forth say’s the LORD! I AM calling it forth through the trumpet ministries I have ordained in this hour! Watch for miracles, signs and wonders that glorify me says the Lord God almighty!

    GREAT ENERGY:

    Where do you think the great energy of man has come from? Where did the ability to make things powerful and massive begin? Where did the Locomotive come from? Where did the Rockets that soar into the heavenlies come from? Are they not mere inventions that come from the imagination? Was it not I that gave forth this knowledge and inventive creativity? Yes, it is I, yet I say unto you that eye has not seen and ear has not heard what I am about to do IN THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN ME! All that which has been physical and natural is now swirling within the inner man of the new creation that is in the earth. Has there been any greater power than to see one raised from the dead. Do the rockets and locomotives compare to the resurrection? NO! Yet I have called you into the THIRD DAY the DAY OF RESURRECTION POWER!

    This is the INTERNAL force that I am releasing within MY CHURCH at this time! SICKNESS, DISEASE, FRAILTY, TERMINAL INFLICTIONS.. ALL OF THEM SHALL BE DESTROYED! Was not this force in the earth in JESUS, my firstborn from the dead? Was not this force in MY CHURCH the FIRST of the NEW CREATION RACE? Am I not the Alpha and the OMEGA, the beginning and the END? Did I not say that the FIRST shall be Last and the Last shall be FIRST? Yes, and so it is in this the LAST of times that I will do the FIRST works with DOUBLE PORTION POWER! I am depositing with you all the riches of my Glory says the LORD for the PULLING DOWN OF STRONGHOLDS! Through this Great energy MENTAL CAPTIVITIES SHALL BE DESTROYED, OLD THOUGHT PATTERNS SHALL BE RENEWED, WHEREIN YOU ONCE SAID I CAN’T, YOU WILL NOW SAY I can do all things, AND ALL THINGS SHALL BE DONE CONCERNING YOU IN Christ Jesus!

    THUNDER AND LIGHTENING:

    You say when will these things be? I say to you that they are here, in the atmosphere! Swirling all around the world is the sound of the SEVENTH TRUMPET! At the sounding of this trumpet all things come to their conclusion! All mysteries are finished and the revelation of the truth abounds. The SEVENTH SEAL is being broken off the mind of the CHURCH and perfect understanding of who I am is being known, and as one sees me for who I am their life shall become apparent. For these have been hid in me and now that I AM appearing they are appearing with me! You now hear the sound of THUNDER and the LIGHTENING is about to strike! This is the CONTACT that I have been preparing you for! MY lightening struck two thousand years ago in an upper room but now, oh but now my lightening is about to strike in a final expression of glorious power in the dimension of absolute and total completion! There will never be the need of this thunder and lightening again say’s the Lord for this thunder and lightening is finishing the work fully, and is ushering in the new heavens and the new earth!

    The Thunder you now hear is but the forerunner of the lightening that is about to strike! This lightening shall strike in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye and then, oh then …..SUDDEN BOLTS OF LIGHTENING shall open the heavens and remove the veil first of all within my people and they shall see me face to face. The world shall not see me at that time, yet in a moment all will see and all will know by the works that MY CHURCH shall do, for I and MY CHURCH ARE ONE! This burst of lightening shall be as surprising as the collapse of the World Trade Centers! Suddenly, unexpectedly to those who are not ready! Oh be ready people! Be sanctified in your hearts and minds and put off that old man and put on the new man! Allow my fire to purge out any remaining leaven and the love of this world! Oh listen my people says the Lord. I am a consuming fire and I shall purge the earth of all of its filth! The Hypocrites shall be surprised with sudden terror! The world shall crumble as billions shall wail in torment for their resistance to my ways and will! My Glorious CHURCH shall arise filled with every ornament of grace, as lively stones brilliantly lit with the passion of my love. Do not take lightly the things I say for many shall come to me in that DAY saying LORD, LORD, open unto us and I WILL SAY UNTO THEM, DEPART FOR I NEVER KNEW YOU!

    Fasting is not my cup of tea (ha ha) but some of my Fiji friends were fasting this past week and good luck to them. It’s about focus. When they fasted, they used the experience to pray, to reflect. That’s what it’s about. Many of the above posts are way out of line. Good luck to Tui and the men and women in Suva who take this up.
    Meanwhile the pope pats a koala bear in Sydney, so there’s another story going on at present. Best wishes to the 500 pilgrims from Fiji joining in the energy of so many youth together.

  32. Jose Says:

    Oh yes, the popi. Freemasonry handshakes and hand signals from him with Australian PM and govt officials and archbishops sa matailelevu.
    Interesting to note a bit of information he read from his speech…….”..what a great image of the Universal church………” and many other such references to a One World Religion and One World Order. Great Deception in Sydney. The abomination of desolation. The whore that rides the beast.
    in the sea and multitudes of thousands and thousands of goats…..sorry ..pilgrims…..????? Forgive them Lord Jesus for they know not what they do.

  33. church mouse Says:

    I am double-minded about the special events. Many of my friends are Catholic and nice people. But I do think there is manipulation and a hierarchy is not my thing. Rather ordinary music too. Old fogies up front instead of outstanding youth speakers. It could have been done better.

  34. Jean d’Ark Says:

    The tricky thing about fasting is you better be prepared for ANY answer the Lord gives.

    We all know that Frank is a charlatan, and Mahen is a snake, and the Charter is dead in the water before it’s even started, and that this IG is the main cause of the peoples’ suffering these days.

    But God’s first priority will always be His own Kingdom, and Christ’s first priority is always likely to be His church. So it is not unreasonable to expect Them to focus in on fixing the problems there first before concerning themselves with secular affairs which will all pass away with this world anyway.

    In 2000, the church came together and repented because they saw that the ugliness of that time came as a result of their own failures. So they repented and prayed and came together in unity, which was a good start, but didn’t go far enough to fix the real problems in the churches. And eventually, it mostly got side-tracked off into politics through the ACCF, and now here we are suffering from yet another coup.

    So hopefully, the church in Fiji will now be able to pick up where they left off post-2000, and go on to return the church back to the spiritual glory days of “Deep-Sea Canoe” and “Fire in the Pacific”, where the nation will truly be blessed by the effectiveness of the church, and the demonic powers will not be able to raise up another Speight or Bainimarama to punish and torment the people with injustice and stupidity.

  35. Jose Says:

    @ church mouse
    Trust in your instincts and that tiny little voice within that tells you something is not right there.

  36. Frida Says:

    Just been told by a friend that bainivore is already calling on the Methodist church leaders for HELP since the fasting began. Can someone verify the truth of this piece of news. The story goes on to say that he has confirmed with church leaders that he was given a large sum of money to undertake the coup. he is restless everynight and there are always men with big buiniga watching over him. Most of the night he is sleeping under the bed – rere tiko vei koya. Vosa vakavevelevu tiko vei ira na Turaga ni vanua, talatala ni lotu – your day will come and if this story is true, I am watching intently for the outcome.

  37. Neutral Says:

    Well, Frida I seemed to agree with you, but you don’t have to ask for verifications. What is happening before our very eyes is a clear signal that he is out of his mind and his SOUL is begging for mercy. From the comfort of his surrounding guards, how long will he continue to rule this country. He is being exposed for what he had been bragging about…transparency and accountability. Payment of his leave backddated to 1978 is a breach of leave policy. No one is allowed to accumulate his leave that long. Who approved the encashment of this leave ? Is this the reason why Chand , a man of priciple was asked to step aside because of his refusal to be part of it?
    As a matter of concern to the nation and mainly for pleading to the MOST HIGH to save a soul in the brink of plunging into HELL I salute the Rev Koli for calling the Methodists Suva wide to go on a one month(Jul) fastings and prayers . To you turaga nai talatala qase your call surely is a call from heaven.

    God bless the soverign nation of Fiji.
