日本で一番安いプロテイン(トップ20)(Cheapest protein in Japan)

むきむきボイ

最近、プロテイン(たんぱく質)が足りないと感じるようになりました。 数ヶ月前から腕の筋肉が痛くなり、頭がモヤっとして悪化しているような気がして、精神状態もいつものようにハッピーではなくなってきました。 昔から超痩せ型で、丸いBMIメーターでは目盛りがマイナスになるほどで、それは40年ほど前にベジタリアンになる前からそうだった。

プロテインが足りないのでは? この素朴な疑問から、最も安いタンパク質を摂取できる方法を探すことにしました。

植物性は最高

大学時代以来、肉や魚を食べていないので、植物性タンパク質が第一候補です。 植物性の食事は神の計画であり、多くの動物や魚は病気であると信じています。 しかし、自分的には「肉=タンパク質」というイメージがあります

神が創った動物を殺して、血を抜いて食べるというのは、自分にとってはめっちゃ気持ち悪いことです。 今、このことを書いているだけで、胃が痛くなってきた。 ウェー!。 肉にはたくさんのタンパク質が含まれていることは知っているけど、神様が「生きるため食べなさい」と言わない限り、食べないつもりです。

しかし、魚は別物だと思います。 イエス様が魚を食べたところを聖書で読んだ。 魚を食べただけでなく、祝福して増やし、他の人にも食べさせたのです。 イエスはそれをあるところで「良い」と言ったのです。 そして、最も驚くことは、復活した体になってからも魚を食べていたということです。 これには驚きました。 蜂蜜も。 だから、イエス様は菜食主義者ではなく、ベジタリアンでもなく、魚を食べるベジタリアン(ペスカタリアン)だった。 羊肉を食べていたと言う人もいるけど、霊感を受けた言葉の中には、その事を確実に証明する言葉はどこにもありません。

では、日本で最も安いタンパク質源は何でしょうか? 勝者は「大豆」で、間違いなく第1位は→
1. きなこ(焙煎大豆パウダー)
他に近いものは→
. おから
. 豆腐
. 高野豆腐

リストアップした物は、元となるタンパク源の種類にグループに分けていています。 この記事の下の方に、これらの物を順番に並べた簡単な表があります。

きなこは、日本で一番安いタンパク源です

きなこは、甘くないまろやかな味を出すために、お餅などのお菓子にトッピングする日本の伝統的な食材です。 この写真のように薄茶色で、通常は何も加えていません。 たまに砂糖を入れる人もいる。 もう大きな袋を買う人は少なく、小さな袋に入っていてわらび餅に振りかけるものとしてしか知らない人は多いかも。 この袋には、カナダとアメリカ産の大豆が入っています。

しかし、タンパク質の量を見てください!

100gあたり36.5gとは、すごい! この袋には200g入っていて、お値段は? 業務スーパーで買った。 https://www.gyomusuper.jp/
日本全国に店舗があり、安いことで知られている。 ここでは、73gのタンパク質が65円で摂取でき、1円で1g以上のタンパク質が摂取できることになります。 1円で1g以上のたんぱく質が摂れる商品は、現在私が知る限り日本ではこれだけです。 ちょっと待った! 今、きなこブームになってて、今日買いに行ったら、1kgの袋がなんと298円でした。 367gのプロテインが298円で!? 信じられへん! 1gあたり0.81円、つまり1.23gが1円です。

きなこの栄養表、日本で一番安いプロテイン

Cheapest sources of protein in Japan (Top 20)

muscle bound boy

Recently I’ve started to feel like I’m not getting enough protein in my diet. For several months my arm muscles have hurt, my brain seems to be in a fog and getting worse, and my mental state is not as happy as I normally am. I’ve always been super skinny, registering off the scale on the downside on those little BMI meters, and that was true even before I became vegetarian around 40 years ago.

Maybe I’m not getting enough protein? This simple question has put me on a quest to find the cheapest method to get me protein in my body.

Plants are best

Plant-based protein is obviously my first choice, as I haven’t eaten meat or fish since I was in college. I believe a plant-based diet is God’s plan for us, and that many animals and fish are diseased. But I have this mental image that meat = protein.

Now the idea of killing an animal that God has created, and draining the blood and eating it, is beyond gross to me. Just writing about it now, my stomach is starting to churn. Yuck! I know there is lots of protein in meat, but unless God tells me to eat it, or to stay alive, I’m not going to.

But to me, fish is different. I see where Jesus ate fish. Not only did he eat fish, but he blessed it and multiplied it and gave it to others to eat. He called it “good” in one place. And the most amazing thing about it, is that he even ate some AFTER he had his resurrected body. That astounds me! Honey too. So no, Jesus was nowhere near being a vegan, not even a vegetarian, but a fish-eating vegetarian (pescatarian). Some people say he ate lamb, but there is nothing in the inspired words to definitely prove that position.

Kinako is hands-down the cheapest source of protein in Japan!

OK, so what is the cheapest source of protein in Japan? The clear winner is “soybeans”, and without a doubt, number 1 is:
. Kinako (roasted soybean powder)
The only other things that give this a run for the money are:
. Okara (Soybean leftovers from making tofu)
. Tofu
. Koya dofu (freeze dried tofu)

The sources I checked are based on classification of the underlying protein source. There is a simple table at the bottom of this post listing these sources in order.

kinako is the number one cheapest protein source in Japan

Kinako is a traditional Japanese topping on rice cakes and other sweets to give a bit of a mellower, not-so-sweet taste. It is light brown in color, as shown here, and usually has no added ingredients. Sometimes people add sugar to it. Few people buy a whole bag of it anymore, and many people probably only know it as something in a tiny bag to sprinkle on warabi mochi. This bag has soybeans from Canada and the U.S.

But look at the amount of protein!

36.5 grams per 100 grams – wow! This bag has 200g in it, and the cost? I bought it at Gyomu Super. https://www.gyomusuper.jp/ They have stores all over Japan, and are known for being cheap. Here you can get 73g of protein for only 65 yen, which means you get MORE than one gram of protein for 1 yen. This is the only product I currently know of in Japan where you can get more than one gram of protein for one yen. HOLD THE PRESSES! It looks like there is a mini boom in kinako right now, as today when I went to get some more, they had 1kg bags for – drum roll – only 298 yen!!! 298 yen for 367g of protein! This is unbelievable. Only .81 yen per gram, or 1 yen for 1.23g!

Thomas Paine reappears to unite Left and Right

Recently I remade a video of Thomas Paine reappears and put it on Youtube:

What makes this important? Because Thomas Paine is mentioned in the inspired book: “The Great Controversy Between Christ and His Angels, and Satan and His Angels”. It is ONLY in the original, 1858 edition.

According to the inspired words, one of Satan’s angels is going to impersonate Thomas Paine near the end time, in order to get people to doubt the Bible.

Since many people do not know who Thomas Paine was, and why he was such a bad man, and even question the idea that he would be important enough for Satan to make a special effort to “bring him down from heaven” and make it look like Thomas Paine reappears, this video will try to make it all abundantly clear.

Thomas Paine was one of the most influential writers of the American Revolution. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Paine

Thomas Paine’s writings

His most famous book/pamphlet is “Common Sense”. This book, probably more than any other, helped spread the ideas of independence from Europe, and of democracy in America, and thus, the world. In his pamphlet “American Crisis”, which George Washington had read to his soldiers, he coined the famous phrase: “These are the times that try men’s souls”.

However, he later turned against the Bible and attacked it fiercely. In “Age of Reason”, he wrote: “Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel.”

“It is far better that we admitted a thousand devils to roam at large than that we permitted one such impostor and monster as Moses, Joshua, Samuel, and the Bible prophets, to come with the pretended word of God and have credit among us.”
And, “stupidity of the Bible”.

So we see that Thomas Paine, by his own admission, believes the Bible is just pretended to be from God, is from demons, and is stupid!

This is the background for the amazing quote in the original, 1858 Great Controversy Between Christ and His Angels, and Satan and His Angels (by Ellen White) detailing how Satan will make it appear that Thomas Paine reappears and is living in heaven now!

Chapter 30 “Spiritualism”

Thomas Paine, whose body has mouldered to dust, and who is to be called forth at the end of the 1000 years, at the second resurrection, to receive his reward, and suffer the second death, is purported by Satan to be in heaven, and highly exalted there. Satan used him on earth as long as he could, and now he is carrying on the same work through pretensions of having Thomas Paine so much exalted and honored; and as he taught on earth, Satan is making it appear that he is teaching in heaven. And some on earth who have looked with horror at his life and death, and his corrupt teachings while living, now submit to be taught by him who was one of the vilest and most corrupt of men; one who despised GOD and his law.

He who is the father of lies, blinds and deceives the world by sending his angels forth to speak for the apostles, and make it appear that they contradict what they wrote when on earth, which was dictated by the Holy Ghost. These lying angels make the apostles to corrupt their own teachings and declare them to be adulterated. By so doing he can throw professed Christians, who have a name to live and are dead, and all the world, into uncertainty about the word of GOD; for that cuts directly across his track, and is likely to thwart his plans. Therefore he gets them to doubt the divine origin of the Bible, and then sets up the infidel Thomas Paine, as though he was ushered into heaven when he died, and with the holy apostles whom he hated on earth, is united, and appears to be teaching the world.

Satan assigns each one of his angels their part to act. He enjoins upon them to be cunning, artful and sly. He instructs some of them to act the part of the apostles, and speak for them, while others are to act out infidels and wicked men who died cursing GOD, but now appear to be very religious. There is no difference made between the most holy apostles and the vilest infidel. They are both made to teach the same thing. It matters not who Satan makes to speak, if his object is only accomplished. He was so intimately connected with Paine upon earth, and so aided him, that it is an easy thing for him to know the very words he used, and the very handwriting of one of his devoted children who served him so faithfully, and accomplished his purposes so well. Satan dictated much of his writings, and it is an easy thing for him to dictate sentiments through his angels now, and make it appear that it comes through Thomas Paine, who was his devoted servant while he lived. But this is the masterpiece of Satan. All this teaching purporting to be from apostles, and saints, and wicked men who have died, comes directly from his Satanic majesty.

This should be enough to remove the vail from every mind and discover unto all the dark, mysterious works of Satan;–that he has got one whom he loved so well, and who hated GOD so perfectly, with the holy apostles and angels in glory: virtually saying to the world and infidels, No matter how wicked you are; no matter whether you believe in GOD or the Bible, or disbelieve; live as you please, heaven is your home;–for every one knows that if Thomas Paine is in heaven, and so exalted, they will surely get there. This is so glaring that all may see if they will. Satan is doing now what he has been trying to do since his fall, through individuals like Thomas Paine. He is, through his power and lying wonders, tearing away the foundation of the Christians’ hope, and putting out their sun that is to lighten them in the narrow way to heaven. He is making the world believe that the Bible is no better than a storybook, uninspired, while he holds out something to take its place; namely, Spiritual Manifestations!

Thomas Paine reappears to unite Conservatives and Liberals!

“So what if Thomas Paine reappears?” you say? Here’s what makes it such a big deal: Right now in America, there is a very bitter divide between Conservatives and Liberals. Conservatives call Obama the “antichrist” while Liberals call Trump unprintable names. Conservatives are usually for Christian morality (?), small government, and individual freedom. Liberals are more concerned with social justice (?), big government, and group consensus morality. The impasse seems to be too great to ever, ever be reconciled peacefully.

Except that Thomas Paine already does it! His writings on freedom and small government fire up even strong Conservatives, like the Tea Party members, while at the same time, his writings on social justice and against Christianity give the Progressives a warm feeling that he is on their side – the supposedly morally and intellectually superior side.

So Satan’s angels will impersonate Thomas Paine, and bring “peace and safety and unity”, to get the world to follow them as they call for a law to make Sunday a holy day, and put restrictions on people who keep God’s 7th day Sabbath holy. They will look like they have won for a while, but God will destroy them in the 7 Trumpets and 7 Last Plagues, and then Jesus will destroy the rest of the wicked when he comes in the clouds.

Dead people are dead, not in heaven

Here is a forum showing some connections to Thomas Paine reappears:
https://21804.activeboard.com/t26136017/thomas-paine-spiritualism/

Let’s be prepared with God’s words that “The dead know not anything.” (Ecclesiates 9:5).

Corona gets real in India

Not having a TV or reading newspapers, and having been raised with a skeptical mind, I’ve looked pretty objectively at the corona crisis, and have seen that while it is bad, it has killed just a few more people than the standard flu does every year, and it is not anywhere near as lethal as viruses in other pandemics, such as the Spanish flu in 1918 which killed over 20,000,000 people worldwide. The vast majority of those killed by the Corona virus have been elderly, or those with major health issues already, like diabetes or obesity etc.

India melts down under corona cases

Indian hospital with corona patients

Now, however, my mind is changing on the matter, as two Brothers in India that are very dear to me have contracted this new strain, and one has written:

I am admitted in covid positive center. survival due to oxygen. Please uphold me in special prayer so that I can have speedy recovery and be in His vineyard.

I am under observation for one week strictly and doctor will give final decision. I hardly communicate because my throat is chocking and having serious breathing problems. I am battling for life. Please pray and thank you.

Change mind on corona?

Some might be tempted to say that I’ve changed my mind just because it’s hit home, but that’s not it. Something is different now. I can feel it. Here in Japan too a healthy-appearing 50 year old man came back from India last week, had the pcr test at the airport, was confirmed positive, was sent to a dormitory for quarantine, 3 days later developed breathing problems and lots of coughing which subsided the next day, but then died just three days later. Japanese man dies from new Indian corona

Hospitals in Japan are basically refusing new patients. I read just this morning of a case where a 60 year old in Tokyo went to to the nearest hospital where he was told to go to the govt. health center because they couldn’t help him, and he died the next day. One other man was left in an ambulance for 1 1/2 days.

Vaccine savior?

Many people are pinning their hopes on the vaccines, but I read yesterday that a fair percentage of vaccinated people contract the corona virus again, and some of them die too. So I’m still not convinced of the effectiveness of vaccines. Of course the vaccine is not the Mark of the Beast, but it may be a precursor to get people used to the idea of taking some kind of object from the govt. that can confirm your identity. I believe that the Mark will be Sunday worship after it is enforced by the govt., but there will obviously be some kind of visible aspect to it also.

May we prepare for the end times, get out of cities, grow our own food, evangelize the people around us, and study our Bibles to learn what is going to come over the world like a tsunami (and probably literally too in the 7 Trumpets!)

Please pray for my two friends in India too.

Forecast record cereal crop harvests

Many Climate Change believers want to gloom and doom everything, but the facts are, the world is growing more food all the time.

Here is a snip of the FAO report: “In addition to its record forecast for global wheat production in 2021, the FAO said it’s expecting a new and higher estimate for world cereal production in 2020, now seen at 2.76 billion tonnes, a 1.9% increase from the previous year”.

This is cause for rejoicing!

Catholic “Father” more righteous than SDA “President”

A Youtube video by Life Site News, a Catholic organization that fights to protect the least of these my brethren, has an interview with “Father” James Altman. His straight to the truth message is so refreshing, especially after all the hemming and hawing done by our own SDA leaders. He really calls to task many of the US bishops who are openly defying the words of God in the Bible. He even rightly says at the 5:30 mark something so straight, that it made me write this post: “You cannot be Catholic and a Democrat”.

Wow!
https://youtu.be/rWBkZ6B7QYE

Some other gems are that he says we can expect to be persecuted if we are truly (Catholic), we have to build our spiritual arks, preach from the pulpit to put an end to abortion, “we have it pretty good, maybe that’s why we have this problem with faithlessness, Satan loses in the end, but Christ conquers!

It would be great to hear something like this from an Adventist……

President Trump loves the “least of these my brethren” to the end

One of the very last things President Trump did as president was to make a statement regarding protecting the lives of those still in their mother’s wombs. This is tremendous! I doubt America will ever have such a godly president again, at least until the fireball judgments from God basically force people to consider their evil ways.

This article
https://www.theepochtimes.com/roe-v-wade-a-constitutionally-flawed-ruling-trump-says_3661285.html
says:

President Donald Trump on Jan. 17 called the landmark Supreme Court decision that dramatically expanded access to abortion “constitutionally flawed” and noted that it’s led to the termination of tens of millions of unborn babies.

“This month, we mark nearly 50 years since the United States Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision. This constitutionally flawed ruling overturned State laws that banned abortion, and has resulted in the loss of more than 50 million innocent lives,” Trump said in a proclamation.

“But strong mothers, courageous students, and incredible community members and people of faith are leading a powerful movement to awaken America’s conscience and restore the belief that every life is worthy of respect, protection, and care. Because of the devotion of countless pro-life pioneers, the call for every person to recognize the sanctity of life is resounding more loudly in America than ever before. Over the last decade, the rate of abortions has steadily decreased, and today, more than three out of every four Americans support restrictions on abortion.”…

“As a Nation, restoring a culture of respect for the sacredness of life is fundamental to solving our country’s most pressing problems. When each person is treated as a beloved child of God, individuals can reach their full potential, communities will flourish, and America will be a place of even greater hope and freedom. That is why it was my profound privilege to be the first President in history to attend the March for Life, and it is what motives my actions to improve our Nation’s adoption and foster care system, secure more funding for Down syndrome research, and expand health services for single mothers.”

Would that God’s remnant church leaders would have one tenth the courage to protect the life of baby Jesus that President Trump has! God bless you sir!

Too much iron (as in meat) reduces lifespan

That is the conclusion of a study published in Nature Communications, and accessed on Science Alert

Put simply, having too much iron in the blood appeared to be linked to an increased risk of dying earlier.

“We are very excited by these findings as they strongly suggest that high levels of iron in the blood reduces our healthy years of life, and keeping these levels in check could prevent age-related damage,” said data analyst Paul Timmers, from the University of Edinburgh in the UK.

“We speculate that our findings on iron metabolism might also start to explain why very high levels of iron-rich red meat in the diet has been linked to age-related conditions such as heart disease.”

While correlation doesn’t necessarily mean causation, the researchers used a statistical technique called Mendelian randomisation to reduce bias and attempt to infer causation in the data.

As the researchers noted, genetics are thought to have around a 10 percent influence on lifespan and healthspan, and that can make it difficult to pick out the genes involved from all the other factors involved (like your smoking or drinking habits). With that in mind, one of the advantages of this new study is its sheer size and scope.

Ellen White warned us of the dangers of meat eating.


Of course we Seventh-day Adventists have been told by God’s messenger, Ellen White, starting over 160 years ago, that meat eating was not best for the body. Then, in later years, she wrote that God’s people will eventually give up eating meat before Jesus returns.

I had only considered this from the angle of the diseases in the animals led to the slaughterhouse, but now I see that even the iron, which I’ve been taught is a good thing to get as much as you can, may be a large factor in making us die earlier.

If we really want to follow God’s will and keep this temple pure for Him, we should quit eating meat today.

Mass shooting rates in America are lower than in many countries

Another Liberal canard has been bitten by the big, bad bug of hard data. We hear often on the news about how bad America is with guns, and if we would just give up our guns, the world would be a dreamy, peaceful place (I don’t have a gun myself). One of their scariest talking points, is all the mass shootings we have in America. Of course, even one murder from any source is terrible, but we don’t often hear the facts of the case, like that more people were killed by bare hands last year in America than by rifles.

Now a research paper by John R. Lott titled: “Comparing the Global Rate of Mass Public Shootings to the U.S.’s Rate and Comparing Their Changes Over Time” blows away the media myths regarding this subject, and shows that many other countries have higher rates of mass shootings than in America.

Here is the complete report available for download:

The Constitution founded on Christian principles made America greatest country

Everywhere in America today one hears that America is not a Christian nation. They say that the founding fathers were Deist or Agnostic or Atheist or anything but Christian. While it is true that some of the more prominent ones weren’t Christian in the traditional sense, over 90% of the founding fathers were either openly, avowedly Christian, or seemingly Christian, or had made statements in support of Christianity.

The Constitution of America did not just miraculously arise without any kind of articles of law being published in America before that time. Some of the prior documents that influenced the later Constitution in 1787 were the Mayflower Compact (1620) which showed that the Pilgrims had undertaken their voyage to the new world “for the glory of God, and the advancement of the Christian faith.”

The Constitution of Connecticut was penned in 1639, and a Christian minister – Rev. Thomas Hooker, was the driving force behind that document.

Basically all the colonies, and what later would become states, based their legal codes upon a Christian legal foundation. These all played important roles in the later writing of the Constitution of the United States of America.

The Second Continental Congress, who made the Declaration of Independence in 1776, did a very interesting thing – they formally sought for an American printer for the Holy Bible, and eventually found a willing printer who would print what would become to be known as the “Aitken Bible”.

Aitken’s Bible was completed by early September 1782. Congress passed the following resolution on September 12: “the United States in Congress assembled, highly approve the pious and laudable undertaking of Mr. Aitken, as subservient to the interests of religion … , and being satisfied from the above report, of his care and accuracy in the execution of the work, they recommend this edition of the Bible to the inhabitants of the United States.” This means that with a congressional endorsement, Aitken’s Bible was the first English-language Bible published in North America.

Over half of the signers of the Constitution had gone to seminary to receive Christian religious training. Charles Thomson was the long time Secretary of Congress in the early days, and an accomplished theologian. His translation of the Septuagint, the Greek New Testament in 1808, was the first translation of the New Testament directly from the Greek into English ever written. All previous English New Testaments were translated from the Latin.

The Northwest Ordinance, which was made by the Continental Congress in 1787, determined how the states would be admitted into the Union. The first article assured the freedom of worship, and the third article placed the government in the role of insuring a special place for “religion” in America: “Religion, morality, and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.” Of course in those days, “religion” was synonymous with “Christianity”.

It is interesting too to note that the individual states had to ratify the Constitution in order to make it into binding law. 11 of the 13 states had state recognized churches, so the new federal government was not needed or wanted in taking over the states’ power in the religious realm.

Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson are usually triumphantly held up by Agnostics and Atheists as proof that the founding fathers were not Christian and did not intend to instill Christian principles into the U.S. Constitution. However, Franklin signed Pennsylvania’s Constitution in 1776 which said: “I do believe in one God, the creator and governor of the universe, the rewarder of the good and the punisher of the wicked. And I do acknowledge the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be given by Divine inspiration.”

Thomas Jefferson had an eclectic view, seemingly his own private religion. It can be fairly said that while he rejected all the miracles regarding Jesus, and many of the doctrines to be found in the Bible, he very much loved the teachings of Jesus that he considered “pure”, and even went so far as to try and promulgate those teachings. He wrote in 1821: “…Jesus, when, in short, we shall have unlearned every thing which has been taught since his day, and got back to the pure and simple doctrines he inculcated, we shall then be truly and worthily his disciples: and my opinion is that if nothing had ever been added to what flowed purely from his lips, the whole world would at this day have been Christian.” Some have said his views align somewhat with the Unitarian denomination.

Patrick Henry, in 1776, stated, “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great Nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For that reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here.”

Ellen White has written that America is the “greatest country on earth”, and makes it clear that it is because America introduced the ideals of the Bible into the country in a way superior to any other country.

May we repent as a nation for our many sins and turning away from our Creator – Jesus Christ, and may we stand up and tell others how great things God has done for us as a nation!

Peace breaking out all over

Many people believed that President Trump would be a warmonger, starting wars here and there just to show how powerful he was. But the facts of the matter are, since he has taken office, exactly 0 wars have been started by him, and one or two have been ended.

Then a couple of weeks ago, there was big news that the United Arab Emirates (Dubai) had signed a big agreement with Israel, with Bahrain following just a week or so later. Saudi Arabia allowed Israeli airplanes to use its airspace for the first time, several countries including Guatemala and Chad announced plans to move their diplomatic missions/embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalm, and Kosovo signed an agreement to work towards peace with Serbia at the White House.

These are all very welcome news that in a normal world would be lauded loud and far, to see peace breaking out in the Middle East, but the Progressive media hates the president, so anything he does well is buried, and any barb that can be launched against him is tried, even when it is utterly false. (Yes, CNN tried to put down the peace agreements by saying that the signers weren’t “social distancing”!!!)

Fortunately, there are a few people recognizing the significance of these events, and have nominated President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize. Here is what one such group from Australia has to say:

“He went ahaead and negotiated against all advice, but he did it with common sense. He negotiated directly with the Arab states concerned and Israel and brought them together,” Professor Flint said.

Professor Flint told Sky News host Alan Jones the Trump Doctrine is “something extraordinary” and is emblematic of the two things which guide the president.

“He has, firstly, common sense, and he is only guided by national interest … and therefore an interest in the western alliance” he said.

“What he has done with the Trump Doctrine is that he has decided he would no longer have America in endless wars, wars which achieve nothing but the killing of thousands of young Americans.

“So he’s reducing America’s tendency to get involved in any and every war.

“The states are lining up, Arab and Middle-Eastern, to join that network of peace which will dominate the Middle-East.

“He is really producing peace in the world in a way in a which none of his predecessors did, and he fully deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.”

Let’s pray for the president, that he and his family will stay safe, and that he will keep working to make peace and save lives.

Support declines for Black Lives Matter – Praise God!

This is good news! Even with a very biased question by the polling service, they found that support for the BLM protests has gone way down:

Forty-four percent of poll respondents said they disapprove of the protests, and only 39 percent approve of them. This marks a dramatic decline of support for the Black Lives Matter protests over the past three months. When the same question was asked by the same polling organization in June, 54 percent of poll respondents said they approved of the protests, while only 32 percent said they disapproved.

This represents a huge swing of 27 points against the Black Lives Matter protests, from a +22 point approval rating in June to a -5 point approval rating in September.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/09/25/poll-more-disapprove-of-black-lives-matter-protests-than-approve-support-plunges-from-54-to-39/

And in other good news, the BLM website has removed their “beliefs” section which showed clearly that they are a Marxist front, which wanted to “disrupt the western nuclear family”.

Perhaps my Seventh-day Adventist Church leaders will withdraw their support from this ungodly organization one day soon. 🙂

tallest building in Japan

Currently, the tallest building in Japan is Abeno Harukas in Osaka. It is 300 meters tall. I enjoyed watching it slowly going up and up and I walked past it nearly every Friday for a couple of years around 2013 or so. I even made a video about it:
https://youtu.be/YP0H-vuWMU8

Now today I read where: “Mitsubishi Estate has unveiled plans for the Tokyo Torch, a 390-meter (1,280-foot), 67-story skyscraper that will become the tallest office building in the country, and the second-tallest structure behind the 630-meter (2,080 ft) Tokyo Skytree.” https://newatlas.com/architecture/tokyo-torch/

But that won’t be completed until 2027, so I still have a few more years left to amaze tourists, like the Hong Kong lady, who refused to believe me when I pointed to Harukas and said it was the tallest building in Japan. That might be because the little area of Hong Kong has 6 buildings that are taller!

The Return 2020 in Washington D.C.

Last week I heard about an even to be held in Washington D.C. called “The Return 2020”. It is in progress now up to the end of the year, but the main event will be on September 26, 2020. They are specifically targeting the time from the Feast of Trumpets up to the Day of Atonement. They are saying this is from September 18th to 28th, but actually they are off 2 days, as September 26 is the real Day of Atonement.

Looking at their main event calendar for that weekend: https://thereturn.org/downloads/TheReturn-Program.pdf it looks like their focus in on repentance. That is wonderful! And that is so much more nice to see when one realizes that this is the part always missing from our SDA “Revival” programs. Yes! Repent!

But is this program really to lead to God, or…..? Explanation video here: https://youtu.be/cn9wlzsFKzc

There is one other huge factor at play here. Progressives are planning a “Siege the White House” from September 17th to election day. Their plan is basically to make Trump hole up so he cannot move about freely. It is basically an open attempt at a coup. http://republicbroadcasting.org/news/the-white-house-siege-occupation-starts-sept-17-2020/ Some people are already starting to wonder if there will be fireworks between the Leftists and Rightists being such close proximity to each other. Really, I believe America is nearly at the point of Civil War, where such a spark could result in sweeping changes to how America is governed.

Or, could a charismatic leader arise who could make peace between both sides? Some SDAs are saying this is a good opportunity for Satan to make his appearance, but he hasn’t laid the groundwork well enough yet. First, his fallen angels will appear to people, and get them all stirred up to hate Sabbath-keepers. When things are at fever pitch, and most likely after God has already started his fireball judgments, Satan will make his appearance as an imitation Christ, and try to deceive the world.

In any case, yes, we need to pray for America and for its leaders to do the right thing, to repent and turn to God and follow his ways. It may be that God will have compassion, and hold off on his dregs of wrath for the land of light for a while longer. But as long as America kills its babies, and legalizes an abomination, and God’s people refuse to vote to stop those immoral acts, then the wine in the cup keeps getting closer and closer to the brim.

Ellen White’s prophecy of “blasphemy to speak against spiritualism” soon to be fulfilled by BLM?


I got quite electrifying news last week that Black Lives Matter is based on spiritualistic, African “voodoo” ancestor worship.
It sounds crazy, but here is what went down at a BLM event in LA in 2015:

“Participants arrived dressed in white, in keeping with traditional Ifá ceremonies. Ifá is a faith and divination system that originated in West Africa and involves rituals of chanting, dancing, calling on deities, magic, ancestor worship and traditional medicine like reiki and acupuncture.
At the ceremony, participants joined hands and a preacher facilitated the ritual, conjuring Ford’s spirit and transferring it to the crowd.

BLM and affiliated groups like Dignity and Power Now have been working together to blend a variety of spiritual practices, including Ifá rituals and other traditional African practices, with the idea of “transformative justice” with origins in Quaker and Native American groups. …..

Thomas aims to integrate elements of African spirituality like pouring libations and invoking the presence of deceased relatives into Black Christianity. ”

If you don’t know why it electrified me, it’s because while I’ve already seen that this movement has the power to sweep everything in front of it, I did not know it had the possibility of fulfilling one of the greatest prophecies of the 1858 Great Controversy book by Ellen White, about how evil angels will appear as dead people who went to heaven and came back to tell us things, and how Ellen White writes in other places how it will be seen as “blasphemy” to speak against this almost overpowering delusion of Satan. Even without the visible manifestation of Satan’s angels now, many people are losing jobs and more for speaking out against this madness. The section of the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. that has to do with African-American history, came out with a very strange thing this week, saying being on time, working hard, having a normal family, following the scientific method etc. basically were all related to “white privilege”! Of course they always have to put their dig in against Jesus Christ too, as He is their number one enemy.

“I saw that soon it would be considered blasphemy to speak against
the rapping, and that it would spread more and more, and Satan’s power
would increase, and some of his devoted followers would have power to
work miracles, and even to bring down fire from heaven in the sight of
men. I was shown that these modern magicians would yet account for all
the miracles wrought by our Lord Jesus Christ by the rapping and
mesmerism, and many would believe that all the mighty works of the Son
of God, when he was on the earth, were accomplished by this same power.
I was pointed back to the time of Moses, and saw the signs and wonders
which God wrought through him before Pharaoh, most of which were
imitated by the magicians of Egypt; and that just before the final
deliverance of the saints God would work powerfully for his people, and
these modern magicians would be permitted to imitate the work of God.”
