How you feel about Jewish people and how you treat them will all be judged one day.
Galatians 3:28-29 is very clear about our relationship with them: "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female, for ye are all one in Christ Jesus."
"And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."
Judiaism does not need Christianity to explain itself; but Christianity cannot explain itself without Jesus and Judiaism.
Love your brother is a commandment; not a choice.
The holy bible warns us that we must not feel superior to the Jews and explains why.
We continue in Romans 11:19-26 (Living Bible translation): "Well, you may be saying, those branches were broken off to make room for me, so I must be pretty good.
Watch out! Remember that those branches, the Jews, were broken off because they didn't believe God, and you are there only because you do.
Do not be proud, be humble and grateful-and careful. For if God did not spare the branches he put there in the first place, he won't spare you either.
Notice how God is both kind and severe. He is very hard on those that disobey, but very good to you if you continue to love and trust him. But if you don't, you too will be cut off.
On the other hand, if the Jews leave their unbelief behind them and come back to God, God will graft them back into the tree again. He has that power to do it. For if God was willing to take you who was so far away fro him-being part of a wild olive tree-and graft you into his own good tree-a very unusual thing to do--don't you see that He will be far more ready to put the Jews back again, who were there in the first place.
I want you to know about this truth from God, dear brothers, so that you will not be proud and start bragging. Yes, it is true that some of the Jews have set themselves against the gospel now, but this will last only until all of you Gentiles have come to Christ- those of you who will. Then all Israel will be saved." Amen
How can caregivers help their elderly to change their ways and make life easier for everyone?
The great majority of platinum age seniors have developed habits of whining & complaining about their bodies and circumstances. This serves as an outlet for inner feelings due to pain and helplessness. They often miss the attention of others and the activities of endeavor when they were younger. In other words, they develop these attitudes due to lack of communication with those about them. This inability to participate in and be an influence with others leaves a huge void. This is gradually filled with efforts to regain or salvage lost
roles and restore relationships that are fading.
Once caregivers understand these problems and their cause, they can take action to solve them.
First, caregivers must bring the truth to light for all parties concerned.
Make a list of the most frequent complaints of the elderly and note when they most often occur. Then think about what was said or done; or what was not said or not done that caused the complaint. This helps understand the elderly one's attitude.
Caregivers will find that love & understanding works better than pain pills.
Find the right time and circumstances to have a face to face discussion about the problems.
Then urge the loved one to consider making changes to develop new habits and attitudes.
Be frank and truthful while explaining future actions, as a caregiver, you may be forced to take
if things remain the same.
Caregivers need to do self-examination of their words, actions and attitude prior to the elderly one's response.
The elderly develop a kind of inner radar that senses the real attitude and motivations of others.
Many times, the signals they get are false readings
and not truth.
This too, should be openly discussed and verbal agreements made. This establishes a method to
make every effort to clarify intent on both sides.
Tomorrow we will discuss caregiver attitudes and habits that affect relationships and communication.
Christians have the blessings of Abraham through faith in Jesus Christ. Galatians 3:13-14 (KJV) explains
how: "Christ hast redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written,
cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree."
"That the blessings of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ. That we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith."
Abraham received his blessings by faith under God's
Old Testament Law. We get our blessings through faith in the New Testament Law of Faith. Amen
The Jewish New Year will begin September 20, 2017
and is called Rosh Hashanah. It is celebrated as a Day of Remembrance and a day of judgement.
Understanding their holidays and traditions honoring God helps Christians remember that our faith came forth from their roots. It is a petition for a good year and remembering the birth of Isaac
(child of God's promise) and how Abraham released Isaac from binding sacrifice and spoke in prophecy that "God himself will provide a lamb for sacrifice".
During services, the blowing of the shofar (ram's horn) recalls the binding and releasing of Isaac and
recognizes God as ruler in the New year.
We wish them-'A good inscription and sealing
[in the Book of Life]. Amen
OUR PROGRAMS CAN DELAY THE ONSET OF DEMENTIA AND ALZHEIMER'S DISEASES AND HELP PREVENT THEM.
iN MANY INSTANCES THE SEVERITY OF DISABILITIES CAN BE REDUCED AND IMPROVE THE PATIENT'S
MENTAL, PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL WELL BEING.
YOU SHOULD CONSIDER THAT 1 IN 4 SENIORS WILL END UP IN NURSING HOMES OR OTHER INSTITUTIONS. THIS 25% RATE OF ADMISSIONS INCREASES TO 50% OF THOSE AGE 95 AND OLDER.
THE PLAIN TRUTH IS, NO ONE WANTS TO GO LIVE IN A NURSING HOME KNOWING THEY ARE THERE TILL THEY DIE. SO WE USE WHATEVER METHODS WE CAN TO MAINTAIN INDEPENDENT LIVING AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. THESE MEASURES ARE CONTROLLED
FOR THE MOST PART BY FINANCES. WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD DICTATES WHAT YOU GET. THIS RESULTS IN THE PRIMARY FOCUS ON WEALTH INSTEAD OF HEALTH.
SENIOR HEALTHCARE TODAY IS DESIGNED TO TREAT DISABILITIES AFTER THEY OCCUR AND PRIORITY IS GIVEN ACCORDING TO THE SEVERITY OF THEM.
THIS TRADITIONAL APPROACH WILL BE CHANGED
BY THE NEW GENERATION "BOOMER AGE" SENIORS.
THERE WILL EMERGE AN AGGRESSIVE PREVENTIVE CARE LIFESTYLE FOR THE MIDDLE-AGE AND YOUNGER SENIORS. RECOGNITION OF DIETARY IMPACT ON HEALTH, ACTIVE PHYSICAL & MENTAL ACTIVITIES AND AGGRESSIVE TREATMENT FOCUSED ON MINOR HEALTH PROBLEMS WILL DEVELOP A NEW ERA OF SENIORS.
DEMENTIA & ALZHEIMER'S DISEASES WILL BE FOUGHT BY PREVENTIVE MEASURES INSTEAD OF PROLONGED DISASTROUS TREATMENT.
WHAT YOU DO IN YOUR TODAYS DETERMINES WHAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DO IN YOUR TOMORROWS.
DO SOMETHING NOW FOLKS!!! Amen

What is God's Love and how is it different from the love others have for one another?
We find the answers in Luke 6:31-34 (Living Bible
translation): "Treat others as you want them to treat you. Do you think you deserve credit for merely loving those who love you? Even the godless do that.
And if you do good only to those who do you good- is that so wonderful? Even sinners do that
much. And if you lend money only to those who can repay you, what good is that?
Even the most wicked will lend to their own kind
for full return."
When we call out to God for his blessings in these special times, we must remember that he is looking at us to see how we treat one another today and tomorrow. Amen

The Jews are still God's chosen people whether the world likes it or not.
Romans 11:11-18 (The Living Bible translation) shows the relationship between Jews and Christians and why it is that way:
"Does this mean that God has rejected his Jewish people forever? Of course not! His purpose was to make his salvation available to the Gentiles, and then the Jews would be jealous and begin to want God's salvation for themselves.
Now if the world became rich as the result of God's offer of salvation, when the Jews stumbled over it and turned it down, think how much greater a blessing the world will share in later on when the Jews, too, come to Christ.
As you know, God has appointed me a special messenger to the Gentiles. I lay great stress on this and remind the Jews about it as often as I can.
So that, if possible, I can make them want what you Gentiles have and in that way save some of them.
And how wonderful it will be when they become Christians. When God turned away from them, it meant that he turned to the rest of the world to offer his salvation. And now it is even more wonderful, when the Jews come to Christ. It will be like dead people coming back to life. And since Abraham and the prophets are God's people, their children will be too. For if the roots of the tree are holy, the branches will be too.
But some of these branches from Abraham's tree, some of the Jews, have been broken off. And you Gentiles who were branches from, shall we say a wild olive tree, were grafted in. So now, you too, receive the blessings God has promised Abraham and his children, sharing in God's rich nourishment of his own special olive tree.
But you must be careful not to brag about being put in to replace the branches that were broken off. Remember that you are important only because you are part of God's tree, you are just a branch, not a root. continued tomorrow...Amen
How do you feel when you read announcements like,
"Cure for dementia & Alzheimer's disease promised by year 2035?
Those of us age 60 & over do not get encouraged by these words. It stirs fears of hidden dangers that we strive to find the courage to resist. The great majority of us still live in the dark ages in this rapid advancing
new communication era. Most of us lack the skills required and have no desire to learn. Those that are willing, don't have access anyway or simply cannot afford them.
This generation gap will continue until my generation no longer exists over the next 10-20 years.
The "younger Boomers" and the following "Bloomers"
will take our place in society.
The medical oriented community has pretty well milked the cow using fear to generate vast sums for research & racing each other to find the cure.
Over the last ten years, there has been a reluctant
recognition & admission that diet, exercise, social interchange and brain stimulation are major factors in
preventing or delaying the onset of dementia & Alzheimer;s diseases.
Simply stated, evryone has focused on the wrong end of the barrel. Prevention training & education for a revitalized lifestyle is the solution. This must be done now for my generation to reduce the fear, avoid the agony for patient & family and avoid financial disaster
for them and Medicare, We have the answers and help is on the way today. Amen
