My Prayer For You


Today I pray that like Job, God would surround you with a hedge of protection and that you would have greater blessings in the latter poart of your life from this day forward.

I pray that like Abraham, you would grow wealthy with cattle, gold, and silver.

That like Isaac, you’d plant a field and reap a hundred-fold harvest.

That like Jacob, with wisdom and discernment, you would grow your flocks and herds.

That like Joseph, the dream that God’s given you will be salvation to many.

That like Moses, the Lord will reveal himself to you and show you His glory.

That like Bazalel, who helped build the Tabernacle, that the Lord would anoint you for the specific task that He’s called you to accomplish.

That like Joshua, God will fill you with the spirit of wisdom.

That like the children of Israel, you’d live in land that you didn’t buy, with barns and houses that you didn’t build, drinking from springs and wells that you didn’t know existed and eating from vineyards that he didn’t plant.

That He’d bless the fruit of your trees, the grass of your fields and the calves of your herds. That He’d bring the spring and autumn rain, and that there would be none sick among you , and none barren.

That like David, God would give you a blueprint of  what He would like you to build for Him.

That like Solomon, He would give you a wise and understanding heart.

That like Uzziah, there would be good men caring for you r cattle in the foothill and that you’d have a love and understanding of the soil.

That like Danie, God would give you ten times the wisdom, favor, and discernment of all those that don’t know Him.

And that like Peter, you’d cast your net on the right side of the boat and catch one hundred and fifty-three fish in

Jesus’ name, AMEN!

What’s “white poison”?

Have you ever heard milk be referred to as “white poison.”? It is a term known in natural circles when referring to cows milk. You may, hold this opinion your self, regarding it as well. I think we are all well versed with the term “lactose intolerant”. Lacstose is a carbohydrate in the form of a disaccharide. To you and me that means, it has two molecules of sugar that are linked together. It’s no surprise to many people across the nation and else where find it very difficult to digest, because,  of it’s dual sugar molecule. It must be broken down before being absorbed into the small intestine. Unlike a monosaccharide  it is a single sugar molecule that can be directly absorbed into the lining of the small intestine with out having to be broken down first. Other examples of disaccharide carbohydrate’s are, white and brown refined sugars, cookies, cupcakes, brownies, pies, boxed cereals, breads, bagels, dinner rolls, muffins, and cinnamon rolls.  Examples of monosaccharides are most fruits, vegetable, natural cheese, cultured dairy, nuts, and raw honey.

There are also “people groups” such as those with Jewish decent, African-American’s and people who’ve decended from the Middle East and India find it more difficult to break down the lactose or disaccharides. YET, in those areas, (countries and continents) their diets were based around dairy. So why such allergies here and not there? I’ll get back to that question in a moment. Also, here in the U.S, hormone-ridden, pesticide residue laced commercial milk attributes to sixty percent of ear infections in kids under six years of age. And Lactose intolerance is the most common food allergy in the U.S today.

If you havn’t heard before I’m going to tell you what the conventionally raised cows are being fed.  It includes GMO soy and corn  which can also include animal products, antibiotics, and other unnatural substances such as chewing gum, candy with the wrappers still on, chicken manure, and other cow’s blood. Obviously their health is put in jeopardy and they are unhealthy. They are also given a wide array of antibiotics, hormones and vaccines. All of the things that are given to the cow remain IN the cow from the meat to the milk that comes from it.

So getting back to the question I asked earlier in this post. It is believed that a small genetic mutation occurred up to two thousand years ago, that is found in modern dairy cows populating North America, Europe, and Australia. This very mutation may play a huge role in dairy intolerance. Milk proteins come in two types, whey and casein. Casein comprises about 80% of the total protein in milk, and of that protein there are A1 and A2 beta-casein. Cows pass down either A1, A2 or both to their offspring just like we pass down eye color to our children. Years ago the majority of cattle were A2, then the genetically mutated A1 strain appeared. The original A2 milk is generally produced in Africa, Asia and France, and also in goats milk. Upwards of 90% of cattle in the US are A1 cattle, but Beyond Organic’s dairy herd is 100% A2 beta-casein cattle.

So what does this mean? It means that the dairy products from Beyond Organic are “Highly Tolerable” so say’s many people with “lactose intolerance”. What makes their products even more desirable is although their products are pasteurized, they are Truly Raw keeping the most vital probiotic cultures (more than thirty) that create a wide array of beneficial compounds, including organic acids and enzymes. How do they pasteurize and not kill all of the beneficial probiotics? So glad you asked. In addition to their Olde World production methods, it is never heated above the cows body temperature of about 101 degrees Fahrenheit. You can find other products labeled “raw”, except,those cheese makers are legally allowed to heat the milk to just a single degree under pasteurization temperature, a process that kills the important probiotics and enzymes. So if you’re wanting to find the best organic products under the sun. Click here OR here.
