A Tragic Story

When God created life he gave to man complete dominion over all the food chain including all the fish of the sea.(Genesis 1:28) Fish has always been primary source of food from the very beginning of the age of man. When, Where and How did man go wrong and allow Satan’s evil action to contaminate this vital life supporting product e by invading it’s eatable flesh with a toxic poison. It has happened, but so far is limited but devastating .One such case is ciguatera which is a toxic poisoning which modern medical science has no cure and effects at least eight species of popular seafood that inhabit tropical waters. This popular seafood prepared in any restaurant could be dangerous to your health. I have a precious granddaughter who has been stricken with this devastating malady, and her story follows:
To everyone in attendance at the Wall-Toten wedding on June 2, 2007, the event seemed like a wonderful new beginning. The bride, Tandi, a devoted mom of four, had moved her family in search of a "new" life. It was no accident or vain chance that, she took a job as a teacher's aide at an elementary school where she chose to settle, and one of her second-grade students, Sarah Wall, fell in love with her and somehow was able to introduced her to her father. His name was Glade, a widower with three children .He had tragically lost his wife in a car accident three years prior. Tandi and Glade instantly fell in love, and it wasn’t long before they celebrated the joining of these two families. It was truly a day of great celebration. They were on "cloud-nine" and very much in love. The happy couple left the following day for their Fiji island honeymoon. Glade had made reservations to stay in an advertized resort village. When they arrived at their destination they found that it was a small and very primitive island village. While in Fiji, They ate some barracuda that some locals prepared for them, and within 12 hours Tandi becomes violently ill. There weren’t any medical facilities available on the island, and thinking it was a temporal condition they returned home. Her initial flu-like symptoms persisted and were soon accompanied by peeling skin, rashes, numbness and "pins and needles" in the lips and extremities, severe headaches, loss of coordination and fainting, muscle and joint aches, metallic taste in her mouth, depression, hallucinations and reversal of hot and cold sensation. Ciguatera fish poisoning is a common marine seafood toxin disease worldwide. It is largely under diagnosed and under reported in the world. Symptoms include gastrointestinal and neurological effects, as well as cardiovascular symptoms. Symptoms include headaches, muscular aches, numbness, pins and needles in the lips and extremities, muscle and joint pain, metallic taste in mouth, reversal of hot and cold sensation, hallucinations, depression and much more. My skin always feels like its burning says Tandi. Doctors are often at a loss to explain these symptoms and Ciguatera poisoning is frequently misdiagnosed as Multiple Sclerosis. There is NO known medical treatment or medicine which provides effective treatment or antidote for Ciguatera poisoning. The mainstay of treatment is supportive care. After countless doctor visits, Tandi was finally diagnosed with Ciguatera poisoning, a toxic reaction from eating fish contaminated with ciguatoxin. Ciguatera transformed Tandi, a once vibrant, active and fun-loving woman into someone bedridden and suffering from agonizing pain each and every day. Her days of hiking, gardening, biking, jogging, teaching and laughing were now spent in chronic pain. After getting home to Heber City, Utah and visiting medical professional doctors could not diagnose my sickness for weeks. As I became sicker and sicker, we saw an Infectious Disease Doctor and that is how I found out I have Ciguatera.

In an attempt to relieve the unbearable pain, a doctor prescribed Methadone, an opiod medication used to treat chronic pain. While some of her Ciguatera symptoms were eased by the medication, life did not return to normal. Many times Methadone put Tandi into a "zombie-like" state.
It wasn't until months later that Tandi and those around her became aware of the dangers of the drug Methadone, especially the large doses prescribed she take every day. Tandi made the decision to get
off the potentially lethal drug. However, as she quickly learned, getting off Methadone is not an easy task. She began weaning herself from the drug slowly (with doctor's assistance); but as she did, the withdrawal and Ciguatera symptoms began attacking her body with a vengeance. It is well documented that Methadone is the hardest drug to detoxify from and Tandi is currently struggling with this. More than ever her body is riddled with pain. She vomits daily, she can't sleep, and she hurts in ALL muscles and joints.
Tandi desperately wants her life back. She wants to care for and enjoy her supportive and caring husband and their seven beautiful children, but she needs support to make that happen. In order to get through the Methadone detoxify process and for hopeful relief from the Ciguatera symptoms, Tandi needs continued professional help; help that she simply cannot financially afford at this time. Family and close friends of the Wall's are asking for the public's support to raise aid by donated funds needed to get Tandi well. The Tandi M. Wall account has been established at "U.S. Bank". Any donations will be greatly appreciated. We know with Tandi's giving nature that she will make it her personal prioritized mission to reach out and help others which number is estimated to be from 10,000 to 50,000 effected consumers of this toxic poisoned fish per year are about the hazards and symptoms of Ciguatera Toxin (which symptoms are commonly mistaken for Multiple Sclerosis) and the dangers of prescription Methadone.
To make donations for the cause of Tandi, you can walk into any U.S. Bank or mail donations to: U.S. Bank (Tandi M. Wall Donation Account) 550 North Main Street, Heber City Utah 84032.

About one week ago I was awakened from a sound sleep and was led by the Holy Spirit to look-up and given to understand the following scriptures related to Tandi’s and others, unanswered prayers. It is due to the hardening of our hearts and our unbelief. I am aware that some of you will choose not to believe me, but I am not writing what I think, but what God has had written for our edification. He led me to Mark chapter 16 verses 16, 17 and 18. Where He divulged that He first gave to us the authority working with Him by using His name baptize believers into the Holy Ghost, and when it was manifest those baptized would speak with other tongues (for it is written, we know not what to pray for, but the spirit residing within us does), and during their sojourn through this mortal life, should any consume any poisonous substance, it would not harm them. This is why we ask God to bless our food when giving thanks. At this time I was referred to Mathew chapter 3 verse 11 where John the Baptist declared that he indeed baptized with water signifying acknowledgment of repentance, but Jesus would baptize believers with the Holy Ghost and with fire. (Power) The problem is with us, not believing and trusting God, for it is all done and finished through His blood sacrificed for us on the cross. We must obtain the true knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord and by faith put the devil to flight, and not ask, or expect our Father to do again what He has already done.

Jesus, (John 10:14-16, and John 14:6)
Object of Faith: The Cross (Romans 6:3-5)
Power Source Gods Holy Spirit (Romans 8:2, 11)
Results: Victory (Ephesians 2:8, and Romans 6:14)
Please take notice, salvation is a free gift from our Father, but requires from us faith, trusting him. This before it is activated and we have dominion over sin. Then, and only then, Sin Shall Not Have Dominion Over us.

God has made known that He wants now to unveil to all believers and non-believers a mystery which has been concealed from man since the beginning of time. It is truly a mystery and is something that can only be known by the revelation work of God. The mysteries of the scriptures cannot be discovered or comprehended by intellectual learning or personal experience, God Himself must make them known through the Grace-empowered, Spirit led proclamation of His concealed message within His written Word. The great mystery God wants to unfold is "Christ in you, the hope of glory." It is not an eternal home in Heaven, but a Heavenly home in a new world wherein which is spiritually founded, not carnally founded as this world is. It is this earth made new after the great white throne judgment to become our permanent home everlasting. Yet as we mature in the knowledge and wisdom of God in preparation for this glorious transformation we should have inquisitive wonderment and questions. For instance, why did God reveal the book and story of Job, and who are the sons of God? Ancient writings refer to them as fallen Angels, but could they include all angels. The story of Job portrays the horror and affect of sin when unaltered even though Job believed and feared God. I question how this might concern us today. Because Job had matured spiritually, believing and trusting in God even though his wife and friends abandoned God he was an overcome the evil of sin. Today, in this perplexed and evil world while all society and even most Christian churches and religious followers are adopting a philosophy of apostasy and a fear of physical terrorism they become unaware of a silent and more sinister attack from Satan. An act that is aimed at dividing be leaving people intellectually into alienation with Him, and the absolute truth, His Word, Jesus. Be not deceived, the Gospel is unchangeable and though we live in the 21st century, it will not and cannot be “modernized”. Remember If you have united yourself to God by receiving Jesus as Lord, and relinquishing selfness, everywhere you go....God goes with you!

For some reason this day, October 9, 2009, my spirit is being stirred into action to write this message. Somewhere, someone's well being is being threatened and persecuted badly and needs comforting and assurance from God. You are under His wings and He will never fail you for He has grafted you into His family and His
Love for you is absolute. Because of the situation you allowed to engulf you, He has allowed Satan, the spirit of evil to use your frailty of spiritual knowledge to try your trust and faith. Don’t be deceived. If Peter had not allowed evident situations to divert his attention when he stepped out of the boat and onto the water, he would not have required Jesus to save him. I am led to a scripture that may not seem to be relevant, but all scripture is living word, and as we read it we hear God talking to us. The scripture is Isaiah 49:5 and verse 8. For you it says that He has formed you for a purpose and mission, and in verse 8 He assures you that in His acceptable time He will help you and preserve you. This means if you need anything, it will be done, and you along with many others will know that He provides. To Him is all the Glory. For some reason you need to know that God is on your side and wants to hear from you as well as talk with you if you will only listen. Right this moment Jesus is in intercession for you and He wants to bless you, right now be you made whole.
This messaged concludes with my prayer for you to believe and trust in the goodness of God.

The other day while talking with my son the subject of truths written in God’s Holy Word, the Bible becomes the subject of conversation without contention. Are the words to be taken literally or are they idiomatic. God so majestically designed the structuring and computation of each word and phrase to communicate with faithful born-again believer’s divine truths that assure their growth and maturing in the knowledge of His character and nature along with the development of their faith and trust in Him
During my learning of the Knowledge of God and Jesus, which is a continuous process, I come to acknowledge there are three things impossible for God to do, It is impossible for Him to lie, is impossible for Him to learn anything new for He is omniscient, and it is impossible for Him to make any individual to love Him for He has given to all the ability of free choice and will not rescind His word. His living and written word (the Bible) is an integrated message written to teach and lead His children to understand and apply His righteousness to daily living. I have to study each word and phrase to apprehend and then comprehend in order to gain understanding His loving message to me.
Recorded in Genesis chapter 22 is the account of God tempting, (KJV version) or tested, (Amplified version) Abraham by asking him to offer Isaac his son of promise as a burnt offering to Him. When Abraham had gone as far as he did to comply with the request of God before being stopped by an angel of God from harming the lad, God is reported as saying to Abraham “For now I know you fear and reverence God.” If God is truly omniscient, He knew the outcome before the task began, and this action was for the benefit of Abraham. Earlier by relying on his own sufficiency, he had attempted to help God by fathering the child Ishmael with his wife’s hand maid Hagar, and in so doing failed God. God’s purpose for this ‘test’, or ‘tempting’ action was not only to seal forever Abraham’s faith and trust in God, but is as much the same for you and me today. For it is God’s living word written, He is the author and finisher of our faith. This message to us is a strong witness for the requirement that except we all convert from this world’s rudimental theory of self responsibility for the accomplishment of God’s perfect plan; we shall not enter the Kingdom of God. (Mathew 18:2-3) There is an ungodly, self-sufficient exaltation that leads to defeat and dishonor. Jesus was the ultimate example of humility. Here, we see that He is also the ultimate example of godly exaltation. Jesus humbly surrendered Himself to the will of the Father, which our salvation might be secured through His atoning death. We must not think too highly of ourselves but relinquish all selfness, pride, egoism, arrogance and selfishness to God and trust Him for all needs. We must not believe, or proclaim that because we are human, we are unable to accomplish this for so doing we make the word of God of no effect. I offer the following prayer:
Lord Jesus, What an astounding joy to know that in the near future I will join you in the exaltation serving You eternally. Lord, I humble myself before you anew. Use me your faithful servant now to make known the Excellency of knowledge concerning our Heavenly Father and you while I await the glorious privilege that is before me, Amen.
