hemp Q. Extra protein at breakfast helps me get through a hectic morning, but I'm sensitive to dairy and soy, so I have been trying hemp protein powder instead. Blended with fruit or juice it tastes OK and boosts my fiber intake, but does it really have the "good fats" it claims? Also, is there any chance that eating hemp protein would lead to a positive drug-test result?

A. For decades the Drug Enforcement Administration allowed foods made with hemp seed and hemp oil to be sold in the U.S. as long as the hemp was grown outside the U.S., in Canada for instance.

Such foods contain only a tiny fraction of THC or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana. In 2001, the DEA suddenly decided that the Controlled Substances Act applied to food with any amount of THC, and in 2003, it banned the sale of all edible hemp products. The ruling was reversed in 2004, and hemp food products are available again.

Although hemp protein is by no means a perfect food, it is a valuable source of fiber, proteins, and essential fatty acids. Compared to flax and soy, an analysis of the nutrients in hemp protein is impressive. Hemp protein has more fiber than flax seeds, a more biologically balanced protein than soy, and is a good source of gamma linolenic acid, one of the anti-inflammatory fatty acids.

The omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio is good, though not as good as flax. Some people have trouble with substances in flax seeds that release cyanide, and many people have trouble digesting soy products due to the presence of certain substances that inhibit protein digestion. Hemp protein does not suffer from these problems and, in addition, is easy to grow organically.

There is no doubt that hemp has been cultivated for centuries and used as a source of both food and fiber. There is also no doubt that its more potent relatives (marijuana for example) have been used for centuries to produce euphoria and other altered states of consciousness. As near as anyone can determine, the only real difference between hemp and marijuana is the higher concentration of THC in marijuana. Older studies, using less precise methods and instruments, indicated that consumption of hemp products could raise the urinary levels of THC above the limits used in drug screening.

More recent research has found that concentrations of THC are considerably lower than those reported earlier, due either to changes in the commercially available hemp food products or to improved analytical techniques. It is now estimated that, in order to excrete the lowest amount of THC that would test positive by current government standards, one would have to consume at least two-thirds of a pound of hemp seeds, supplying 0.6 grams of THC, on the day of the test. Although this is a manageable amount, it is unlikely that anyone would purposely consume this much.

Even though eating a hemp food product is unlikely to produce a positive drug-test result, bear in mind that the legal limit for THC is not necessarily the safe limit.

There has never been a documented fatality from THC overdose, but recent findings reveal changes in brain chemistry with even small amounts of THC. Most urine tests detect only THC carboxylic acid (an inactive metabolite) rather than THC or any of its active metabolites. Testing for the THC carboxylic acid metabolite may not relate to intoxication.

If it is a sin to ask for what I already have, and was bought for me at great cost...and I forget and do it anyway...that's covered, too.

I'm free in that way. Free indeed!

It was what you said. It was terrible and amazing. It made me feel so bad. No doctor had said anything to them that his time was short so they were planning on trying some other procedure. He was shocked when I said it but I knew I was suppose to. He confronted the Doctors at The Cleveland Clinic the next day and they confirmed it would be best to take him home.

That's a terrible and amazing story.

So much grief and sorrow.

How hard that must have been for you, too. It sounds like you handled it with truly amazing grace. Someone must have known you would handle it well and that's why the young man wound up coming to you. That's a hard but beautiful story.

Thank you for sharing it.

Life is too hard. Way too hard. But we do it...because we have to and to make the way a little bit better, a little bit more "right", for someone...that's a wonderful thing.

I have a friend from years ago that he got married when he was 18 because he had to get married. He didn't want to but we talked and talked alot about what he should do. They had a son named Zach. He was a beautiful child. One day he knocked on my door and was crying. He said Zack had an inoperable brain tumor and he was only 2 years old. It was very hard for them. He was on his way one day to his pastor's house and instead he felt he needed to come to my house. I made everyone leave the house and we sat and prayed together. I said do you want me to say what I feel I should say and he said yes. I said that he was going to die very soon and that scripture was what I gave him because that is what came to my mind. He ran out of the house and got sick. He went home and all of a sudden he knew it was ok. They brought him home to die that week with the family all around and he was the pillar of strength for his wife. When we walked into the funeral home they greeted us and couldn't thank me enough for what I said. I guess he would have died otherwise in a sterile enviornment at the Cleveland Clinic. God is good.

That amazing fruit and that Tree...
could very well be covered in what FoM said, "Eye hath not seen nor ear heard what God has prepared for those who love Him"...and it will be one of those things we just can't comprehend on what we know now and we can't or won't until we see it.

That screams of meaning though. It just seems to say, "I have secrets and mysteries. Can you find them?"

12 individual fruits on one tree that bear monthly? I did think of the twelve tribes of Israel. But after the twelve part it didn't seem to make any sense.

I wouldn't be surprised if that's beyond any understanding available on this plane of existence...but it's beautiful to even begin to imagine.

I intend to pray about it.

Amen FoM!
The Twelve Fruits of the Tree of Life? I don't know. I was thinking about that this morning after reading the scriptures you provided.

What came to my mind were things like Love, Mercy, Peace, Grace, Understanding, Tolerance, Trust, Honesty, Healing, Contentment, Freedom, Guidance. But that's just pondering. I haven't asked for the understanding yet...but even when I do...it can be years before it arrives.

GCW, all of what you say is right on...except, for me, one thing. I try not to ask God for forgiveness anymore. I don't have to ask for what I already have. I just thank him for it. When I've done something I realize is wrong, I say, I'm sorry and I thank Him for his forgiveness and Grace...but I don't ask for forgiveness because I already have it.

I believe you get that forgiveness when you first repent and ask for the forgiveness, when you lay the foundation of your faith...than it's taken care of....even for the wrongs I haven't done yet or for the ones that I might not realize or notice. I can't ask for a glass of water that I'm already holding in my hand. I can't ask for forgiveness that I'm sure He's already given me. "Once for all"! I am very thankful for it, though. Very, very thankful.

It's humbling and wonderful to trust Him so much that I know that I'm already forgiven. Otherwise, I'd be "crucifying him to myself all over again...and subjecting him to public disgrace...all over again.

I ask Him for guidance and help not to do again whatever it was that is on my conscience.

I have to ask people to forgive me when I wrong them...but as far as my faith is concerned...I've passed the milk stage, and the laying the foundations for repentance and forgiveness and moved on to solid food.

I'm dead to sin and alive to Christ.

(What then? Should we sin that Grace should increase? Of course not!)(Romans 6, 7, 8, are a very good guide on this.)

Hope,
Hope,

Hope asks, The "curse" is death, isn't it?

The general interpretation from some sources includes that the curse is death; before the eating of the tree of knowledge…, there was no death... It is also thought that the curse include child bearing pains for the woman who bears children and that before the “curse” there was no pain… The curse is also thought to be directed to the serpent, causing it to crawl on its belly; thinking it used to not crawl on its belly… see Gen 3:14

It is thought the ground is cursed because of eating of the tree of knowledge of good and evil (which is different than the tree of life; which are both mentioned in Gen. 2:9), which caused toil…

Realize these verses and their implications also; Gen 5:29 & Gen. 8:21.

Gen 5:29, He named him Noah and said, "He will comfort us in the labor and painful toil of our hands caused by the ground the LORD has cursed."

Gen. 8:21-22, The LORD smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: "Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though every inclination of his heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done. As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease

-0-

I have not spent time praying about the curse, lately; I do not know what to say…

-0-

Hope asks, What do you think the "Twelve fruits" that The Tree bears monthly are?

I also do not know the answer to that and I Am reluctant to think or guess, right now. It may not even be physical fruit.

-0-

Consider doing what I do and what You may already be doing…

Pray and ask Christ God Our Father to forgive You for Your sins (so He will face You)

Thank Him for that blessing.

Ask Him to show You the truth about those questions as He wishes for You to know it and to show You so clearly that You can help other people know it and understand it and know it so clearly that they will be able to help others still… Then do share what You receive.

I think that process is part of what helps Me and is a good example for other people. Theatrically, that is the process that will help You find the answers too, so You can help Us. It is also the way people can help check what I have said… along with checking what prohibitionists and other people say about other issues.

""News out of UK has it that 20 planes were stopped after explosives found.

Sound familiar? First the Bush Administration conspired for the 9/11 attack. Now they have to make this sh-t up just so we can bomb stone-aged Islam back to...the stone age.""

It's all about oil. No shit, it really is. The oil pigs don't want to pay top-dollar for it, so they fabricate and engineer wars so that they can STEAL it.

"When someone does wrong, we are not to kill them along with innocent people around them and rationalize it. That is taught on the Bible's third page, in the Ten Commandments and through out the New Testament." --The GCW's link:

US CO: PUB LTE: Regarding Gideons and Bible Hand-Outs by Stan White (Fri, 16 Jun 2006) Summit Daily News (CO) http://www.mapinc.org/drugnews/v06/n784/a07.html Newshawk: The GCW

Yes, The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares is a good example of the above when applied to people:

{ The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares

24 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares [aka weeds] among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’” Matthew 13:24-30 (New King James Version) }

{ 4For (J)everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is (K)received with gratitude;

5for it is sanctified by means of (L)the word of God and prayer. 1 Timothy 4:4-5 (New American Standard Bible) }

Yes, John P. Walters, that does include all your prohibited-by-man-not-by-God plants. Maybe, this is what the Rastas mean when they say, "It's all good."

BTW, Bolivian President Evo Morales is discussing, with the US Government, a new approach to cocaine, restricting the extract powder (cocaine trafficking) but allowing the coca leaves to be used in traditional religion, medicine and culture.

More, while reading last night, during prayer time
I've read this many times. Mentioned it and had it printed in LTE'S many times.

It was shown to Me many years ago.

But last night during prayer and reading time it seemed to reveal more, still.

See what You think.

1 Timothy 4:1-5 has been used by people to indicate the only Biblical restriction placed on cannnabis:

That We use it with thankfulness.

But now look.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?book_id=61&chapter=4&version=49

Does it further indicate, that for "those who believe and know the truth" - "God has created" - "foods" ? (verse 3)

It seems to be indicating that along with all the other foods God has created, there are additional foods created for those who believe nad know the truth. That co-incides with other thoughts and scripture that seems to indicate the tree of life has additional properties for those who obey... like what it says that I've included below in post #8, in Rev. 2:7.

-0-

Also last night in this verse it was exposed how the word "in" is used.

"men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared IN by those who believe and know the truth."

We don't just share a food, We share IN that food. Can We go IN it? That seems to be similar to the way it is also mentioned in Rev. 22 which is also listed below in post #8.

verses 2&3:

in the middle of its street On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

3 There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him;

-0-

You see, "the throne of God and of the Lamb will be IN it" - "the tree of life."

-0-

Consider reading the rest of the last page of the Bible; Rev. 22, for it has so much that sees to reveal what is going on that is told not to do, that some are doing anyway.

Get and stay connected.

GLA & even small amounts of THC.
1st there is mention of gamma linolenic acid again. GLA.

GLA is known to contribute to a strong immune system and is only available from 5 obscure places on the planet.

Borage, black current seed oil, primrose oil, mother's milk and hemp seed oil.

Containers of hemp seed oil available at better health food stores indicates the daily required amount of hemp seed oil only provides about 4% of GLA that We need.

Q. Can GLA in Our diet help reduce the rates of things like cancer?

Q. Is GLA in mother's milk one of the reasons infants who nurse have less chance of health problems?

-0-

2nd.

Some people in My culture believe cannabis / hemp / kaneh bosm... is the tree of life.

Perhaps We don't need more than trace amounts of THC to help receive the spiritual benefits of the tree of life.

That is one reason why George (Mr. Skul N Bones) is so bent on keeping even small trace amounts of THC away from the public.

The tree of life may help people resolve problems with out killing and murdering each other. It may help people obey and love one another. The leaves of the tree of life are said to be for the healing of the nations, on the very last page of the Bible.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?book_id=73&chapter=22&version=49

[Also read what the Bible says about those who overcome (obey and love one another) in Rev. 2:7]

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?book_id=73&chapter=2&version=49

If small trace amounts of THC help people receive the "Spirit of Truth" (see John 14-16 & 1st John [1-5]) then people like George will be exposed.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?book_id=50&chapter=14&version=49

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?book_id=69&chapter=1&version=49

And they know that.

-0-

So obey, love one another and receive the "Spirit of Truth." Disobey, do not love one another and You don't even know You don't receive, yet think You do. It's a Biblical catch-22. ( http://www.mapinc.org/drugnews/v06/n784/a07.html?244925 )

Q. With out the tree of life, are people not properly connected to the spiritual reality that We are capable of?

Q. With the tree of life in the body of more citizens, will less people join the military?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: JIM BYRUM

MONDAY, JULY 11, 2006 (517) 336-0223

Michigan's First Bio-Economy Summit set for September

The Michigan Bio-Economy Consortium brings together commercial/industrial, renewable fuels and biotechnology interests to learn about new opportunities with the Bio-Economy

EAST LANSING - The Michigan Bio-Economy Consortium announced today that it will host the first Michigan Bio-Economy Summit in Lansing from Sept. 20 through Sept. 21, at the Lansing Center in downtown Lansing. The Summit will bring together top state and national leaders in the fields of biotechnology, renewable fuels, methane production and commercial and industrial enterprises.

"The Bio-Economy holds tremendous potential for many different sectors of the economy," said Jim Byrum, President of the Consortium. "From ethanol, a bio-based fuel made from corn and other agricultural biomass, and biodiesel produced from soybean oil or similar oils blended with diesel fuel, to methane production from a waste stream, to opportunities to produce plastics and other manufacturing components from agricultural crops, there is tremendous excitement about the potential for the new 'Bio-Economy.'"

"By bringing all these researchers and policy leaders together, those attending will be able to learn about the latest developments in technology, how these developments may impact the economics and processes related to using bio-based materials and even new ideas for renewable fuels," added Byrum. "This truly represents a new private/public partnership to enhance and maximize the impact of these opportunities for the future."

The summit features such experts as Dr. Kris Berglund, with DNP Technologies, an entrepreneur who holds several bio-based patents, along with Dr. Bruce Dale, an internationally recognized Michigan State University scientist with tremendous expertise in the area of ethanol production. These and other scientists and researchers will explain their work and how it can impact energy and manufacturing technology. Others will be on hand to explain state and federal policies that can help businesses take advantage of these new discoveries.

"The Bio-Economy also holds tremendous potential for jump starting Michigan' s economy. The Summit will allow developers, investors and researchers to learn about the full potential of this exciting new field," said Byrum. "Through the Summit, we hope to forge new partnerships and explore new opportunities with bio-based renewable fuels and industrial materials produced from crops that we grow right here in Michigan."

Another focus of the Summit will be biotechnology, and the promise of new developments that will further enhance these opportunities. Representatives of major biotechnology companies will explain their research priorities and pending developments. Much of this new technology will help improve the efficiency of ethanol and biodiesel production, as well new commercial and industrial ventures.

Many believe that the real opportunity for the Bio-Economy is based on using crops to produce raw materials for manufacturing. From paint to plastics and car parts to glass, crops grown by Michigan farmers will certainly be in your future.

Some companies are already ahead of this curve. A joint venture between DuPont and Cargill produces fibers for carpet from biomass materials, and even plastic bags and cups are being made from corn-based materials.

"We want to find the best ways to take what's grown in our fields and bring new, renewable products to our factories, markets and fuel tanks in the safest, most efficient, profitable, beneficial and environmentally friendly way," Byrum said. "By bringing experts from all these fields to one Summit, we can all learn more about the full potential of the Bio-Economy."

Byrum said Michigan is already well on the way to taking the lead in the Bio-

Economy with researchers from Michigan State University providing new ideas, technology and processes, a dynamic biofuels industry, and leadership from the private sector with Monsanto and DuPont already having two of the largest seed production and processing facilities in North America located right here in Michigan.

Michigan's agricultural and biotechnology sectors currently account for more than $60 Billion in economic output and 1 million jobs annually. New ventures, many related to the Bio-Economy, especially new facilities to produce renewable fuels promise to create $1 Billion in additional revenue, and create up to 23,000 more jobs a year.

Ethanol production alone has the potential to generate an additional $400 million in annual revenue within the next few months. This past spring General Motors announced a joint effort with Meijer and CleanFUEL USA to build 20 new E85 stations across Michigan. E85 vehicles can run on a blend of 15 percent gasoline and 85 percent ethanol.

"Michigan is a very diverse state in terms of the number of agricultural crops produced here," said Byrum. "We have the expertise and ability to handle different crops, and maintain quality and integrity. These factors bode well as Michigan looks toward the bio-economy and using its crops as raw materials for new fuels, new products and new industries."

Sponsors of the Michigan Bio-Economy Summit include Broin, the Ethanol Promotion and Information Council, the Corn Marketing Program of Michigan, Michigan Soybean Promotion Committee, Michigan Farm Bureau and the Michigan Agri-Business Association.

Additional information on the Summit is available by calling 517/336-0223, or e-mailing the sponsors at charla@miagbiz.org.

http://www.nrel.gov/news/press/2004/3404_technologies_lauded.html Monday, July 12, 2004

Golden, Colo. - Two technologies developed by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory are among this year's most significant innovations, as judged by Research & Development (R&D) Magazine.

The Laboratory's two R&D 100 Awards for 2004 are for an innovative, lower-cost method for transforming plant material into the sugars that can be used to make fuels and chemicals, and a thin-film solar cell that produces electricity directly from sunlight, which has greater efficiency, and is lighter weight and more flexible than previous devices.

This year's announcement brings to 37 the number of R&D 100 Awards garnered by NREL.

"Once again, the technologies developed by our Laboratory's researchers are being acknowledged for their importance to the nation," said Stan Bull, NREL associate director for science and technology. "It's particularly gratifying that the R&D 100 Awards this year include two NREL technologies that can enhance our nation's energy security and reduce our reliance on foreign sources of oil."

The Enzymatic Hydrolysis of Biomass Cellulose to Sugars technology is expected to allow a wide range of biomass resources to be used to produce energy and chemicals. It is an important step toward realizing the potential of bio-refineries-in which plant and waste materials are used to produce an array of fuels and chemicals, analogous to an oil refinery today.

Through this technology, the cost of converting cellulosic biomass into usable sugars can be reduced by more than 20 times per gallon of ethanol produced.

They're looking for someone to debate 9/11 on the official side of things? Good luck - they'll find that about as quick as they'll get a DEA or ONDCP employee to defend the drug war in a public debate!!

C-SPAN show ...
DVDs asked for are in the mail, and I'm distributing copies around town.

I'll take one to the local media, soon.

All I know is that since C-SPAN aired the American Scholars Symposium on 7/29, the net has just been exploding with more interest in 9/11 government complicity than ever before. As someone said recently, "The 9/11 Truth movement now has reinforcements!" Even the local paper here just ran a story about Kevin Barrett,Steven Jones and Scholars for 9/11 Truth! The ptb are very,very afraid right now and they have good reason to be.

Terrorist Plot?
News out of UK has it that 20 planes were stopped after explosives found.

Sound familiar? First the Bush Administration conspired for the 9/11 attack. Now they have to make this sh-t up just so we can bomb stone-aged Islam back to...the stone age.
