Believe – what do you believe in, return to the basics

Below is a video which contains a song called “This I Believe (The Creed)” by Hillsong Worship



(This I Believe (The Creed)” by Hillsong - www.youtube.com/embed/FtUNQpu2b7Q)

If you are an Anglican or Roman Catholic, you may have said these words below in church on a Sunday, you may have said these words as part of the service, if you are not Anglican or Roman Catholic you may have also said these words or sang the song above or other songs with similar words in your church, the words from the song above are based on Apostles’ Creed the words of the creed can be found below, but what does it all mean, why is it important .
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church *, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
catholic – adjective (*) - including a wide variety of things; all-embracing. synonyms: diverse, diversified, wide, broad, broadbased, eclectic, indiscriminate; open-minded, broadminded, liberal, tolerant, undogmatic, flexible, unbigoted, unprejudiced, unsectarianecumenical; general, universal, widespread, global, worldwide,comprehensive all-encompassing all-embracing, all-inclusive, unlimited
The link below tells you of the history of the Apostles’ Creed https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Apostles’_Creed

Apostles’ Creed is an early statement of Christian belief, basis of faith and what the church which is the people should be like the church should never be inward looking but outward looking, in the creed it states Catholic, (note this word is not referring to the Roman Catholic church as such) Catholic as we can see above means all-embracing, the church should be diverse and all, embracing it should love and welcomes everyone and want to help people.

How far have we come, when some of our churches are inward looking, we need to go back to basics, we need a new view of God, the church which I said is the people i.e us and we need a new view on how god views us.

God’s love and revelation - God’s love is unconditional you can, not earn God’s love, God’s love is unlimited you can, not put god in a box, he is unlimited so we need an unlimited view of him and allow him to work in our lives. God is for us and has our best interest at heart and wants to bless us, even if we mess up God still loves us and will not let us down, we need a daily revelation of who, God is and what he thinks of us. We need to change our view of God and how he views us. We need to ask God and read the word to find out what God thinks of us daily.

The Father heart of god and his holiness - God wants us to come to him as we are, but he loves us so much he does not want us to remain the way we were, so he changes us into the people he wants us to be. God does not want us to carry the baggage of the past around with us and wants to heal us of it. God sent us his son to die on the cross to take away our sin and pay the price for that sin which is death, he died in our place, because he loved us. He wanted to save us from our shelves and our destructive patterns and make us right with him. We need to allow God to take away our baggage and allow him to heal us

The cross images and victory - Jesus paid a price for our sin because he was the only one that could do it. We have been brought from slavery, of death and sin, this means we are free. The price for that freedom was high and a sacrifice, the only one that could pay it, was God so he sent himself, the only response, to it is gratitude and to accept what he has done as a gift to us.

He has restored our relationship with god and he restores our identity and purpose for being. Jesus turns victims into victors and Jesus wants us to help people. Jesus has wiped the slate clean, he does not keep a record of our sins and gives us a new identity; we don’t need to hold onto shame. In the light of this, we need to get rid of negative things people have said to us or things we are ashamed of, by writing them down praying over them and throwing them away.

The Nature and the correct handling of God’s word - Sometimes our life is like the computer term GIGO which means Garbage in, Garbage out, in other words, if we plant bad things i.e., things that harm us spiritually, we produce fruit that should not be there. We need the plant good seed into our lives i.e. the word and what God thinks of us, we need to spend time with God, we can sometimes be too busy running around for God that we forget the spend time with God.

God’s words do not return void if God says it will happen. God’s word can harm people if used wrongly, we need to learn to use it correctly and we should always use God’s word in love. In the light of this we need to build in down time in our lives where we can spend time with God and using the use the wasted times in my life i.e. traveling by bus productively by reading the word, praying and spending time with God

Correct handling, purpose of God’s word - God word has the power to direct us, and empower us, set us free and tell us the truth about us, but used incorrectly it can harm people we should always use God’s word to build people up and use it with love and grace to help people and set them free. Jesus is our role model and we should always use God’s word as Jesus used the Word and we need the Holy Spirit to do this. God words don’t return void if God says it will happen, we need to trust God that the words placed on our lives will come true. God has a plan and a purpose for our life we need to trust God that he will lead us into it.

Faith - You can be a Christian a long time and not know fully who Jesus is, we need an intimate relationship with him, to know who he is, We need to go deeper and have a more intimate relationship with him, how we view God determines how we view our world and our identity. We need to have passion, to know who he is and please him, worship is not just singing songs on a Sunday, worship should be our whole life, and it’s not about us it’s all about him.

We should be in God’s amazing story not him in ours. We need to trust who God is, if God says it will happen, God words don’t return void, also God knows us and knows what we need. We need to trust God and praise God in faith that things, we are praying for will come about
Releasing power of faith - God has a plan for our lives, God knows what he wants us to do, God knows our destiny and the way to go, God prepares us for the thing he wants us to do. To grow in faith, we need to operate faith by doing what he wants us to do. When we pray about situations we need to be specific. Living in faith can lead to God giving us dreams and visions, God can give us specific words in our lives that impact our lives, we need to keep these words and stand on them. We need to find out what God wants us to do and do it

New covenant blessing and living in the power - We had messed up, we could not meet God’s perfect target for us to live by, so God sent his son Jesus to willingly die in our place and pay the price, because only he could meet the target and he loved us. God wants us to spend quality time with him, God wants us to be in his Amazing Story, he wants us to do life with him and do amazing things for god.

We should not rule our, selves out from God using us. God gives us the Holy Spirit to empower us for the work he wants us to do in our lives, and he gives the Holy Spirit freely and without limit. The same God who made the earth and the heavens is inside you. God wants to bless us and God wants the very best for us, God knows what we need, god does not want us to live in mediocre lives. We should allow God to use us more, and find out what he wants us to do, and spend more time with him.

Worship - Worship should connect you to God, and it should change you and restore us, Worship is powerful, when we worship things happen. Worship is not something we do it’s who we are we should be worshippers it’s in our DNA, it involves all of us, not just singing songs on Sunday morning, we should be Extravagant with our worship, we should give our all for God. Worship comes out of a loving relationship with God and is our hearts response to a loving God, worship or service comes from our heart not because we have to do it but we want to do it, because we love him and he loves us, we should fall in love with him daily, we need to worship in the secret place, Worship is all about God, When we worship it’s not for us, it’s not for anyone else it’s all for God, God is the audience of one and all we do is for god.

You can, not earn God’s love he loves us anyway and loves to be with us. One of the root words of Worship is service, we need to serve God and Others, we need to reach out to the Least, The last and The lost and be Jesus and take Jesus to them, we need to allow him to love people.

God does not need our gifts and talents, he wants you. When things go wrong we should praise God, even when it’s hard to worship, god meets us in worship. We should fall in love with daily, and give him our all, the only way is to spend time with him

Holy Spirit - The Holy Spirit is a person, not an it, he is not gas, or an object he is a him, he has a personality and can be hurt or grieved, he also speaks. The Holy Spirit is like Jesus living inside us and helps us live life and to pray. Holy Spirit guides us, the Holy Spirit is a gentleman and never forces us to do something we don’t want to do and The Holy Spirit never goes against the Gods word or will. Holy Spirit helps understand we are loved and accepted by God and confirms we are Gods children and belong to God Holy Spirit transforms us into the people God wants us to be and helps us do the things he wants us do. We need to receive the Holy Spirit daily, Holy Spirit Glorifies Jesus and points to him

Holy Spirit helps understand we are loved and accepted by God and confirms we are Gods children and belong to God Holy Spirit transforms us into the people God wants us to be and helps us do the things he wants us to do. We need to receive the Holy Spirit daily, Holy Spirit Glorifies Jesus and points to him

Conclusion - God’s love is unconditional you cannot earn God’s love, you cannot put god in a box, he is unlimited so we need an unlimited view of him.

God has an amazing plan for our lives and he wants to bless us God wants us in his amazing story, we should be in Gods story not he in ours God is for us not against us,

God wants us to come to him as we are, but he loves us so much he does not want us to remain the way we were but changes us into the people God wants us to be.

When Jesus died on the cross he restored our relationship with god and he restores our identity and purpose for being, it’s all about God, it’s not about me, we are doing everything for God because he first loved us. God’s words do not return void if God says it will happen.

God’s word has the power to direct us, and empower us, set us free and tell us the truth about us, but used incorrectly it can harm people which is something I have never thought before of that the word can harm people and that we should use it in love. Worship is in our DNA. God gives us the Holy Spirit to empower us for the work he wants us to do in our lives, and he gives the Holy Spirit freely and without limit.

World suicide prevention day



Some useful information from MIND for World suicide prevention day/week/month/year and beyond

we should never be afraid to talk about mental health issues and suicide they are issues that need to be talked about not brushed under the carpet, we should not alienate people who, suffer from mental health issues but help them, we should talk about Mental health the same as physical health.

Getting help in an emergency if you are feeling suicidal
If you don't feel you can keep yourself safe right now, seek immediate help.
  • go to any hospital A&E department (sometimes known as the emergency department)
  • call 999 and ask for an ambulance if you can't get to A&E
  • ask someone else to contact 999 for you or take you to A&E immediately
If you need some support right now, but don't want to go to A&E, here are some other options for you to try: contact the Samaritans on freephone 116 123, they're open 24 hours and are there to listen

Suicidal feelings can range from being preoccupied by abstract thoughts about ending your life, or feeling that people would be better off without you, to thinking about methods of suicide, or making clear plans to take your own life

If you are feeling suicidal, you might be scared or confused by these feelings. But you are not alone. Many people think about suicide at some point in their lifetime.

What does it feel like to be suicidal?
Everyone's experience of suicidal feelings is unique to them. You might feel unable to cope with the enduring difficult feelings you are experiencing. You may feel less like you want to die and more like you cannot go on living the life you have.

These feelings may build over time or might fluctuate from moment to moment. And it's common to not understand why you feel this way.

Warning signs to look out for
  • feeling hopeless, like there is no point in living
  • being tearful and overwhelmed by negative thoughts
  • feeling unbearable pain that you can't imagine ending
  • feeling useless, unwanted or unneeded by others
  • desperate, as if you have no other choice
  • feeling like everyone would be better off without you
  • feeling cut off from your body or physically numb
  • poor sleep with early waking
  • change in appetite, weight gain or loss
  • no desire to take care of yourself, for example neglecting your physical appearance
  • wanting to avoid others
  • self-loathing and low self-esteem
  • urges to self-harm
How long will I feel suicidal?
Suicidal feelings can be overwhelming. How long these feelings last differs for everyone. It is common to feel as if you'll never be happy or hopeful again. But with support and self-help, the majority of people who have felt suicidal go on to live fulfilling lives. The earlier you let someone know how you're feeling, the quicker you'll be able to get support to overcome these feelings. However, it can feel difficult to open up to people. You may want others to understand what you're going through, but you might feel: Suicidal thoughts aren't permanent - things do improve. You can find your motivation to live again

Mother Teresa








the cool inspirational quotes by Mother Teresa about helping people https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Mother_Teresa
Mother Teresa MC, known in the Catholic Church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta since her canonization,[5] (born Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu Albanian: [aˈɲɛzə ˈɡɔndʒɛ bɔjaˈdʒiu]; 26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997) was an Albanian-Indian[1] Roman Catholic nun and missionary.[6] She was born in Skopje (modern Republic of Macedonia), then part of the Kosovo Vilayet in the Ottoman Empire. After having lived in Macedonia for eighteen years, she moved to Ireland and then to India, where she lived for most of her life.

Teresa founded the Missionaries of Charity, a Roman Catholic religious congregation, which in 2012 consisted of over 4,500 sisters and was active in 133 countries. They run homes for people dying of HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis; soup kitchens; dispensaries and mobile clinics; children's and family counselling programmes; orphanages; and schools. Members must adhere to the vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience, as well as a fourth vow, to give "wholehearted free service to the poorest of the poor".[7]

Doctor Watson?


Should I Say Watson supercomputer? or Should I say Doctor Watson now, not to be confused with a character in Sherlock Holmes, recently a computer did what doctors failed to do, a computer identified Unknown illness a Japanese women had, this illness was a rare type of leukemia, the Japanese Doctors were Stumped, until Watson one of the Smallest Super computers the world built by IBM helped them, Watson is famous for going on the USA Quiz show Jeopardy 2011. 

http://siliconangle.com/blog/2016/08/05/watson-correctly-diagnoses-woman-after-doctors-were-stumped
"After treatment for a woman suffering from leukemia proved ineffective, a team of Japanese doctors turned to IBM’s Watson for help, which was able to successfully determine that she actually suffered from a different, rare form of leukemia than the doctors had originally believed. Watson managed to make its diagnosis after doctors from the University of Tokyo’s Institute of Medical Science was fed it the patient’s genetic data, which was then compared to information from 20 million oncological studies. This analysis found a different diagnosis for the type of leukemia from which the patient suffered, and it suggested a different form of treatment, which proved far more effective than the original methods doctors had been using up to that point."
This is so cool people should the power of Watson more to solve problems that can change the world, this opens a window on to the future where computers help in the diagnosis of illnesses, but I hope Computer don't replace Doctors completely. mote Information

Yusra Mardini


this is a cool inspirational story of Yusra Mardini a refugee and now competing in Olympic games 2016, it teaches no matter what happens to you, even when it seems, all hope is lost, never give up!
“How tough is your journey? A year ago, 17 year old Yusra Mardini was stuck in a broken down dinghy with 20 other Syrian refugees between Turkey and Greece. Facing death like so many who had failed to make the trip, she and her sister jumped in the water and swam the boat all the way to land, saving everyone on board (almost all who couldn’t swim). 
The story could end there but - incredibly - today Yusra will be representing no country, with no flag and no National Anthem, when she enters the Olympic Stadium to compete as an Olympic Athlete as part of the very first Olympic Refugee Squad. If you lost everything - your home, your family, your country… 
Would you quit on life? Would you lay low and rebuild? Or would you - like Yusra - go all in and make a stand for your greatness? In 2012, Yusra’s family home was destroyed in the Daraya Massacre, when Assad’s forces killed hundreds of his own citizens in their homes. For the next three years, Yusra and her family tried to return to normality, but school was cancelled practically every week “or someone is shooting, and then you have to run.” So Yusra and her sister made a bid to escape - getting smuggled to the Turkish coast to board a dinghy heading to Greece. 
As Mardini remembers, “There were 200, 300 people there, everyone waiting until there are no police in the sea so they can go.” Yusra’s crowded dingy’s engine died within 20 minutes of leaving. Only four in the boat could swim, but the two men who jumped in with Yusra and her sister soon gave up. Yusra says “I’m thinking, what? I’m a swimmer, and I’m going to die in the water in the end?” 
So it was up to the two girls to keep going for the next three and a half hours: “The little kid kept looking at me, scared, so I was doing all these funny faces.” They made it to Lesbos, then were smuggled through Serbia to Hungary, Austria and finally, Germany - where she spent the winter queueing for days at a time to get asylum papers. 
So how did she end up at the Olympics? Yusra says “I remember everything… I never forget. But it’s the thing that’s pushing me actually to do more and more. Crying in the corner, that’s just not me.” She continued her passion for swimming, and joined a local swimming club in Berlin, where her talent was seen by the National Team and IOC. 
She decided to make a bid for the Olympics despite having no country to compete for, and qualified for the 100m Freestyle & 100m Butterfly. Now - one year after her swim across the Aegean Sea - Yusra is competing in the Rio Olympics as part of 10 athletes in the very first Refugee Olympic Team. She will be in the Stadium tonight, for the opening ceremony, saying “I want to show everyone that, after the pain, after the storm, comes calm days. I want to inspire them to do something good in their lives.” 
However tough things get, remember it’s the tough times that make you tougher. So when you’ve got the option to sink or swim, keep on swimming. Pierre de Coubertin, who founded the modern Olympics, said about the Games: “The important thing in life is not the triumph, but the struggle.” 
Yusra adds to that: “My message at these Games: Never give up.”“

"Naturally Supernatural"
Staffordshire county showground - Stafford
22ND July - 27TH July 2017


EQUIPPING THE CHURCH TO LIVE SPIRIT-LED LIVES

Naturally Supernatural is a brand new event aimed at anyone who wants to move in the ministry and the power of the Holy Spirit. This is an event for the whole church that will focus on spending time in God’s presence, making plenty of space for his Holy Spirit to move among us. We want to encounter Jesus, fall more in love with him, and go back to our everyday lives with both the passion and the power to proclaim him in word and deed. 
Our Naturally Supernatural conference in February has long been a highlight of our year, marked by a tangible sense of God’s presence which has often seemed like a Mount of Transfiguration experience. We have seen people glowing from beholding and reflecting something of God’s glory and are launching this event as we’re longing for more of us to encounter Jesus in this life-changing way. 
At Naturally Supernatural in Stafford there will be two main meetings a day, plus plenty of practical workshops with opportunities to put into practice what we’re learning. We’ll have social events and venues for all ages and life-stages with a full children’s programme that will reflect the themes of the conference. 
Each day will revolve around two main meetings hosted by Mike Pilavachi with lots of time dedicated to worship, spending time in God’s presence, looking at the Bible’s teaching on being naturally supernatural, exploring what that looks like in an everyday context, and praying for one another.

WORKSHOPS

Each afternoon there will be a range of practical workshops so we can get stuck in and not only learn what the Bible has to say about being naturally supernatural but find out what that looks like today and start practicing stepping out in the power the Holy Spirit.
Teaching will cover areas such as:
  • Hearing the voice of God
  • Physical healing
  • Emotional healing
  • Spirit-led worship
  • Spirit-led evangelism
  • How to lead a ministry time
  • How to grow your church in openness to the Holy Spirit
Many of these sessions will include time and space to minister to one another or for some, the opportunity to pray on the streets.
We will also have a prophetic team available to pray with you

VENUES

We’ll have plenty of places to relax and catch up with friends and to hang out as a family. There will be cafes, places to listen to live music, and a bar, plus community events for all ages and life-stages such as a huge picnic and Coffee for Six for any who would like to meet new people in a relaxed setting. 
There will also be a resource area where you can pick up books, DVDs and more to encourage and equip you in your relationship with God.

data storage that could record the history of humankind

Do you want to keep 360tb for life on a glass disc, backup entire libraries of data or more, with no damage over age and with thermal stability up to 1,000°C, well now you can, scientists at Southampton university have made a major step in making something that sounds like it came from science fiction into reality.

below are quotes from Southampton university's website about the project and can be found at http://www.southampton.ac.uk/news/2016/02/5d-data-storage-update.page
"The storage allows unprecedented properties including 360 TB/disc data capacity, thermal stability up to 1,000°C and virtually unlimited lifetime at room temperature (13.8 billion years at 190°C ) opening a new era of eternal data archiving. As a very stable and safe form of portable memory, the technology could be highly useful for organisations with big archives, such as national archives, museums and libraries, to preserve their information and records." 

"Now, major documents from human history such as Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), Newton’s Opticks, Magna Carta and Kings James Bible, have been saved as digital copies that could survive the human race. A copy of the UDHR encoded to 5D data storage was recently presented to UNESCO by the ORC at the International Year of Light (IYL) closing ceremony in Mexico." 

The documents were recorded using ultrafast laser, producing extremely short and intense pulses of light. The file is written in three layers of nanostructured dots separated by five micrometres (one millionth of a metre). The self-assembled nanostructures change the way light travels through glass, modifying polarisation of light that can then be read by combination of optical microscope and a polariser, similar to that found in Polaroid sunglasses" 

Professor Peter Kazansky, from the ORC, says: “It is thrilling to think that we have created the technology to preserve documents and information and store it in space for future generations. This technology can secure the last evidence of our civilisation: all we’ve learnt will not be forgotten.”

below a terrible guide to the internet, its amazing how much technology has changed and how we use computers, it also amazing that people take the internet and computers for granted these days and that so many people in the 90s never used the internet or a computer before

 

 then teens react to the guide above, its so funny what they say

 

as the people in the react videos said,,i also wonder what people in the future will think of our technology, I also wonder in the next 20-30 years where technology will take us and what it will look like.

it is also interesting that people these days can use things like computers and other technology without really knowing how the computer and other technology really works, this leads to people scamming you, because people don't know how they really work, check out the pc scams that are out there all over the internet, a good idea is for people to find out how their computer works not just use it.
