Understanding Vegan Types -


Vegan-Food-Pyramid-New

The difference between a vegan and a vegetarian is that a vegan eliminates all animal products from his or her diet, including dairy. Those following a vegan lifestyle generally do not wear leather and avoid products made from animals such as wool, silk and down. Vegans’ tremendous humanity for animals is an abiding, overriding conviction in their lives.

 Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish or poultry, but may from time to time eat dairy products such as cheese, eggs, yogurt or milk. Vegetarians are not as predictable in their beliefs, as there are many reasons to become vegetarian that don’t necessarily include altruism as a primary motive. For example, many vegetarians have eliminated meat for the sake of their health or just other personal but simple reasons. As far as health is concerned – I am VERY ANEMIC ( low blood levels ) and it is a MUST that I ENDURE chicken, fish and red meat on occasion.

Now eating chicken to me does not make me gag ( most times ) but I must get a high dosage of protein and iron due to my body levels. Therefore, eating chicken in varied ways 2 to 3 days a week is something that I must do and I mix it up in salads or pastas etc. so it is not a killer -

BUT – THE WHOLE RED MEAT THING – OH GOD – KILL ME NOW!!

I have NOT eaten red meat in over 20 years until like 2 years ago – my doctor said that I needed to be admitted for an emergency iron infusion. I am like huh – what is that etc. Iron pills is not enough so I MUST eat a small portion of red meat EVERY WEEK! How do I do this you may say – I psych my mind up to find previous dishes that my father used to make and go to a RESTAURANT where I know that they will make it edible. I do not cook red meat so me trying to make something would cause me to BARF like I have done plenty other times.

In fact, there are a great many people lumped into the group of vegetarian. Lacto-vegetarians will eat dairy, but not eggs. Ovo-vegetarians will eat eggs, but not dairy. Lacto-ovo vegetarians will eat eggs and dairy products. The reasons for these choices are varied and based on individual beliefs. In some cases they are based on moral choices, and in others on dietary needs or simple preference.  Octo-vegatarians ( WHERE I FALL ) prefer not to eat meat and only eat what is necessary for the sake of their health and nothing more or less. However, they do enjoy the pleasures of dairy products and nuts.

Thanksgiving-Dinner

Nonetheless, you would be shocked to see how pleasant vegan food actually is! Think of a huge Thanksgiving feast – I EAT ALL OF THE SIDES but do not touch the meat –

It is indeed all of the “side items” that really make everyone so full and stuffed during the holidays!!

 

Music is Healing –

Music has long been used as a healing remedy – there are accounts of the healing powers of music in the Bible. The Ancient Greek also believed in music as a healer – Apollo was the god of music and healing. Instances are recorded of the beneficial effects of certain types of music on anxiety and depression. It is often used with forms of therapy to induce a sensation of calm.

There is no doubting the powerfully emotive effect of music, which can marshal men to battle, soften rage into affection and romance, calm torment and, conversely, cause intense emotional suffering by means of its exquisite beauty. It has been used since time immemorial to induce all these states of mind; and also to heal disorders of the body, mind and spirit.

Music has long been used as a healing remedy – there are accounts of the healing powers of music in the Bible. The Ancient Greek also believed in music as a healer – Apollo was the god of music and healing. ( DON’T GO CRAZY – I am still a JESUS Follower – just sharing some ancient history! )

Instances are recorded of the beneficial effects of certain types of music on anxiety and depression. It is often used with forms of therapy to induce a sensation of calm: for example, on relaxation tapes; and may be played in meditation. It plays an important part in dance therapy, where the combine effects of music and movement release inner turmoil and conflicts.

The Spirit of Pride –


Pride ………….. It Works in many subtle ways within the body of Christ. It gives a false feeling of peace and well-being. You may feel growth, peace, and comfort, but Leviathan gives false gifts and false worship. Jesus, the very image of the Father, stood for humility. Without humility, love and submission become only hollow words. Pride prevents obedience to God. Humbling ourselves in the sight of the Lord is the very key to any form of exaltation.

Matthew 11:29 I am meek and lowly of heart.

 

THE SPIRIT OF PRIDE/LEVIATHAN IN YOUR LEADERSHIP: Father of the Children of Pride Leviathan flops on and over the church like a wet smothering blanket stopping revelation from coming into the house of God when this level of pride is in your leadership. The breath doesn’t exist in this church. One of the focusing objectives of this spirit is to stop deliverance and deliverance ministries. When Leviathan is in your leadership, you can pray deliverance over people and nothing happens. Leaders don’t feel like ministering deliverance and others don’t feel like they need any deliverance. This spirit is also one of the reasons why miracles, signs and wonders are not taking place in our churches. You will also find people experiencing sleepiness in service, or difficulty in reading the word of God. The only way this spirit will be defeated in a church is by way of the LEADERSHIP REPENTING and Humbling themselves.
