  1. Magnificent website. Plenty of useful info here. I am sending it to several friends ans also sharing in delicious. And naturally, thanks for your sweat!

  2. I truly enjoy looking through on this web site , it holds superb content .

  3. Magnificent beat ! I wish to apprentice while you amend your web site, how can i subscribe for a blog website? The account aided me a acceptable deal. I had been tiny bit acquainted of this your broadcast provided bright clear concept

  4. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    • I agree, I’ve been doing Tai Chi since my mid-to-late 40s and continue now in my mid 55s. I combine this with a chair yoga and Pilates reformer classes, with the three it has helped me stay a lot more flexible than anything else. I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis since I was a child and have had one hip replaced due to AVascular Necrosis (dying bones) and these are the types of activities my rheumatologist has recommended for years.

      So i wonder did the author even ask a rheumatologist at all? Rheumatologist specialize in alll types of Arthritis (which is inflammation of the joints, organs, musles etc.) As there are over 200 different forms of Autoimmune disease that it would encompass for anyone with them no matter their age would be included in the over 50 physical challenges. Just sharing what ive learned over 50 years with the disease.

    Toward the comment that Judo is not a martial art, but an Olympic sport…you could not be more wrong as it is indeed a martial art. Just for your information, Tae Kwon Do is also an Olympic sport and is most assuredly a martial art. I have a 14 yr. old daughter who has been in Tae Kwon Do training for almost 8 years. She just earned her 2nd degree black belt last month, and has been a registered black belt in the Kukkiwon in Korea for 2 years. It takes a very certain personal discipline to achieve her level at her age, and her instructor does not cut corners or “hand out” belts due to length of time with the school like some of the what I call “Belt Mills” do. Bottom line is that if someone is considering entering into the martial arts, they should realize that there is a great deal of commitment involved, and it is not, nor should be like going to the gym once or twice a week.
