“Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour. In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the Lord. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not. He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.” (Psalm 15:1-5)
“Righteous” is simply “Right Standing” with God. “Right Standing” with God is Living the Word of God. God’s Process (Posted at this Website) is how people get to “Righteous” and Live the Word of God. God’s Process has four Levels, Death, Burial, Resurrection and Ascension. Finishing our Death Level is what prefects our “Called.” Finishing our Burial Level is what prefects our “Justified.” Finishing our Resurrection Level is what prefects our “Glorified:”
“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.” (Romans 8:29-30)
“Righteous” is our Ascension Level. People must do their Ascension Level Act of Faith to finish their Resurrection Level. People must be on their Ascension Level to Enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Again my daily Bible reading says it best:
“The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.” (Psalm 24)
Our Ascension Level is also our “Pure State.” Our Pure State is the State we were in before the Foundation of the World. “Integrity,” which also comes from God’s Process is the Foundation “Righteous” is built on. “Integrity” is what people do when no one is Watching. “Integrity” is people know the difference between Right and Wrong:
“Judge me, O Lord; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the Lord; therefore I shall not slide. Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my reins and my heart. For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.” (Psalm 26:1-3)
I said in my “Are You Fighting Aging?” Blog “For ‘Fighting Aging’ for my Body my Focus is my Core, my pH and my Gut.” I said in my “Have You Done The Math?” Blog “Inflammation not Cholesterol is the underlying cause for Heart Disease, Diabetes and Cancer.” This e-mail articles titled, “5 Ways To Boost Your Gut Health & Fight Inflammation” from “MBG” states:
Whether you’re struggling with stubborn belly fat or the smarting twinge of knee pain, you’re likely dealing with low-level inflammation’s effects upon your body.
Inflammation is a necessary part of our immune system — without it, we would not heal. Acute inflammation is the response in your body you might notice when dealing with a cut on the finger or a sprained, swollen ankle. The best part about acute inflammation is that it goes away.
However, our immune system can go a bit haywire and create low-level inflammation that not only stays but spreads throughout the body. Low-grade inflammation is associated with many chronic diseases as well as faster aging and weight gain.
An important component to cultivating optimal health is to reduce low-level inflammation in the body. And what research is now showing is that our gut is the core center of optimal wellness. The health of our gut flora is crucial if you want to live a healthy, vibrant life.
Here are five key steps that will help you create optimal gut health to reverse inflammation in the body and put you on the path to wellness:
1. Plant your gut garden with probiotics.
We have roughly 100 trillion bacteria in our gut. Unfortunately, because of the types of unhealthy foods the majority of people are eating, our gut bacteria balance favors the unhealthy microbes that are promoting inflammation and weight gain.
Adding cultured and fermented foods or as a supplement, also called probiotics, actually “plants” healthy, friendly gut microbes to help create optimal health and reverse inflammation. Probiotics are cultured or fermented foods that colonize our guts with health-boosting micro-organisms. Add a probiotic or cultured and fermented food to your daily diet such as yogurt (without sugar), kefir, natto, kimchee, sauerkraut, pickles, and cheeses.
2. Fertilize the gut garden with prebiotics.
Our gut garden needs fertilizer for optimal results. That fertilizer is called prebiotics. Prebiotic foods contain unique nondigestible plant fibers such as inulin and oligofructose that help your healthy bacteria flourish.
Foods that are high in prebiotics include garlic, beans, bananas, artichokes, oats, jicama, avocado, leeks, onions, chicory root, asparagus, or any green leafy vegetables. Friendly bacteria need these specific foods in order to thrive and help reverse inflammation.
3. Enrich the gut garden with nutrients.
Further support your gut garden with nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, which are powerful in reversing low-level cellular inflammation. Add anti-inflammatory herbs and spices to meals or smoothies such as turmeric, rosemary, quercetin, and ginger.
4. Pull the weeds in your garden by removing toxins.
Unhealthy gut bacteria require refined foods such as sugar (especially sugar), junk foods, sodas, white rice, and white bread to flourish and promote inflammation. Gut microbes outweigh our cells 10 to 1 — so imagine the power they wield in our food choices and our cravings. These unhealthy gut bacteria need these foods, extract more calories from these foods, and store them as fat. Remove these refined, unhealthy foods from your diet to create optimal health, lose weight, and reverse inflammation.
5. Add digestive enzymes.
Enzymes are critical to every cell and every physiological process in your body, including digestion. Unfortunately, our natural enzyme production begins to decline by age 20, so by the time you reach middle age, your body is operating with much lower enzymatic activity. And what is more, even the healthiest of foods are of little use if they are not digested and assimilated properly. Digestive enzymes not only help promote optimal digestion and health, they also help avert inflammation. Add a digestive enzyme supplement between meals to help reverse inflammation, or before a meal to aid in digestion.
Taking care of your gut, and the friendly bacteria that reside there, may be one of the single most important things you can do for your health. Remember to plant, fertilize, and enrich your gut garden to reverse inflammation.
I also said in my “Have You Done The Math?” Blog “Body Fat is Very SERIOUS because it produces ‘Inflammation.’” Most of the Inflammation in our bodies are coming from Body Fat. That is why it is Important to get rid of Body Fat. The Body Fat I was talking about is Visceral Fat. There are actually three types of Body Fat. Subcutaneous Fat is under the skin. Visceral Fat is around the organs and Intramuscular Fat is in between muscle like a marbled steak. As people age their waistline grows, which means their health risks are growing too.
Subcutaneous Fat, which can be grasp with your hand is not the problem and usually stays the same as we age. Visceral and Intramuscular Fat increases with age. Visceral Fat is the biggest problem because that Fat is deep within the abdominal cavity in the spaces between abdominal organs. Visceral Fat is also associated with a higher risk for Cardiovascular Disease and Type 2 Diabetes. Along with that in women it is associated with breast cancer and leads to the need for gallbladder surgery. Men’s waist should be no greater than 40 inches and women’s waist should be no greater than 35 inches.
I have no regrets in my life because if I thought it I tried it. Not things I knew that were bad for me, but things I thought could help. Digestive enzymes are one of the things I tried. I do not use them anymore because I found natural things like “yogurt (without sugar), kefir, natto, kimchee, sauerkraut, pickles, and cheeses” and “turmeric, rosemary, quercetin, and ginger” are better than taking a pill. On our Ascension Level or “Pure State” we must keep everything “Pure:”
“Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall
see God.” (Matthew 5:8)
HAVE YOU GOTTEN TO PURE YET?
