It’s still not the same as actually standing there in complete awe, but this particular video is one of the best ways to experience the northern lights without being there. Get’s really good at minute-5. Great to see the reaction of the two Hawaiian women too.
Also: “huge fireball that goes across the sky at 31:57!”
Abbott Loop celebrated 55 years, today. Rick Benjamin thanks Jesus for His faithfulness!

What the aurora looks like from above Earth!
Published on Nov 2, 2014
Aurora australis and aurora borealis (northern lights) as viewed from the International Space Station. Auroras are caused by charged particles entering the atmosphere from above causing ionisation and excitation of atmospheric constituents as they collide with the earth’s magnetic field.
This video was compiled using time lapse footage shot from the International Space Station obtained courtesy of the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit, NASA Johnson Space Centre.
This is really freeing!

“The prosperity gospel says that Godliness is a means to financial gain, and the Bible says that if you think that Godliness is a means to financial gain you have a corrupt mind….”
“The greatest danger of the prosperity preaching is that it glorifies luxury, but it despises simplicity.”
– Michael Grenholm
Paul in 1 Tim. 6:
3 If anyone teaches a different doctrine, and doesn’t consent to sound words, the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness, 4 he is conceited, knowing nothing, but obsessed with arguments, disputes, and word battles, from which come envy, strife, insulting, evil suspicions, 5 constant friction of people of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. Withdraw yourself from such.
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we certainly can’t carry anything out. 8 But having food and clothing, we will be content with that. 9 But those who are determined to be rich fall into a temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful lusts, such as drown men in ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some have been led astray from the faith in their greed, and have pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

The prosperity gospel is a popular teaching in many Pentecostal and neo-Pentecostal churches. Even though there are a lot of different views on prosperity, the concept is usually understood as economic blessings that God wants to give all believers. If you have a strong faith in God, you’ll get rich. Godliness is a means to financial gain.
But what does the Bible say? Well, in 1 Tim 6:5, Paul speaks about “people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.” So the prosperity gospel is simply corrupt and untrue.
Tithing or the Carriage Driver? [From the Let Us Be ONE prophecy]
Baruch: “Not only is DECEPTION of the church possible, it was PROPHESIED TO HAPPEN!” — Jesus said “IN THE LAST DAYS THE MAJORITY WILL BE DECEIVED, take heed that it doesn’t happen to you” — “FALSE TEACHERS are actually SPEAKING SPELLS with the words of their FALSE DOCTRINES!”
”Forgiveness doesn’t mean that what they did is okay.
It means that you are no longer willing to carry toxic anger
in your heart.”

Costco has this great, organic herbal tea! The first ingredient, Rooibos, is a yummy, South African tea that I discovered at a specialty tea shop.
These other ingredients also rock!
Rooibos, chicory root, natural flavor, rosehip, cinnamon, lemongrass, peppermint, chamomile, ginger root, anise seed, orange oil, orange peel.
It must be super healthy, and probably even fights diabetes, etc.!
I don’t remember the price, but it’s less than $10 for four boxes of 18, each.
The tea bags are individually packed in their own flavor-sealed aluminum pouch, which is really important to maintain flavor and health benefits!
