Low Octane

Certain formulas just make sense, as in the Hi-Performance engines of my younger days. We raced muscle cars every Friday or Saturday night if the weather cooperated on those days. Low octane fuel was for little less-powered engines. But, if we wanted great strength and power, high octane gave us a much better performance. Our health and well-being run on the same performance factors, and it’s equated to the relationship we have with God.

I’m sure some of us have observed people who sat in the back of a church and appeared as though they slept in their clothes. Some believers come to take up space and really don’t take part in the songs of praise. But in the front pews of God’s church, sat the brilliant Christians, praising the Lord, and magnified by God’s glow. Those beautifully dressed believers in the front rows, with their hands held high to receive God’s word… need I say more? They are full of high octane. Then, I examined those of ill-faded color, dull complexions, blemished, and disheveled, and it was apparent their spirituality may be (or was) filled with low octane. Their engine’s performance could be directly related to the quality of octane they put into their bodies.

“If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.” 1 Corinthians 3:17

Though a remarkable difference in the congregation is clear, there appears to be a more profound correlation not so noticeable. My theory is purely hypothetical, so I did some research to discover the accuracy of my prognosis.

“You shall serve the Lord your God, and he will bless your bread and your water, and I will take sickness away from among you.” Exodus 23:25

Jesus proved in His healing work that it is God’s will we have good health. Many examples in scriptures reveal the miracles of Jesus healing those with ailments. Our health is the inevitable result of knowing God and living a life filled with His love and direction. Let’s look at a few of these examples.

My wife’s mother was a devout, God-fearing Christian who lived her life by God’s commandments. When she passed away at ninety-five years old, she barely had a wrinkle on her face. She glowed in God’s spirit, and He took her from us peacefully, without pain and struggle. I have a high school friend who has not had a natural heartbeat since 1995. Pacemakers have been the source of her existence, but she praises the Lord for her health and life. Looking at her today, she is the epitome of health – glowing skin, smiling ear-to-ear, and shiny, beautiful hair. She runs on high octane and lives every day to the fullest. God bless her heart!

On a more notable scale, the evangelist, Billy Graham, was ninety-nine years old when he quietly passed away. He struggled with cancer and eventually died of pneumonia, but until the day he died, he looked healthy. He had God’s glow of high octane. The late Bishop Eddie Long, head of one of the largest mega-churches in the U.S., is another example of one who passed away from cancer. He maintained his youthful appearance and high octane looks until the day he left us.

Our health is a gift to all of God’s children. We can overcome disease and sickness, in some sense, by living a faithful life to Christ. Now do not misinterpret my words to mean we will never get sick or recover from terminal conditions if we live on high octane. God doesn’t promise us life with no pain or sickness. But one has to wonder… why are those with spiritually low octane, appear not so healthy, yet those who run on high octane rarely show any illnesses? Pay close attention to those around you who are suffering ailments and tell me if my observation isn’t correct.

The principles of well-being are not only our mental health but the condition of our physical health too. It’s simple – God is the highest octane you can receive for your body. Where can you get it? We obtain it through prayer and living a godly life. The more the Lord resonates in your life, the better you will look and feel. Let the love of God be Your octane bust!

‘Love Takes A Stand Against Slavery & Crime’: Michel Montecrossa‘s New-Topical-Evolver-Song for helping to end slavery – audio track, video and lyrics



Video © Filmaur Multimedia

About the song:
‘Love Takes A Stand Against Slavery & Crime’ is Michel Montecrossa’s New-Topical-Evolver-Song for helping to end slavery. Slavery in our days is a big business with big profits and is developing always more ways of dehumanization with the aim of creating cheap labor force outside of all human rights.

Michel Montecrossa says about ‘Love Takes A Stand Against Slavery & Crime’:
“Slavery must end. Slavery is the beginning of the end of humanity. Slavery in our days is a big business with big profits and is developing always more ways of dehumanization with the aim of creating cheap labor force outside of all human rights. I made this song when I came across the CNN Freedom Project.”

Love Takes A Stand Against Slavery & Crime
(Love Is A Child)

Slavery like every crime is made by our human mind
that does not know from where we come nor why,
does not know why we go, nor where.
But love is a child and love lets you know
from where you come and where you go.
Love takes a stand against slavery and crime.

Love is the freedom of our humanity.
You lose your humanity with every child slave
and every child soldier and every child trade.
But love is a child and love lets you know
what you should do, what’s there to prove
when man is a monster, devilish and cruel.

Slavery is there, killing mind and life and body,
a crime it is devouring our human hope.
Slavery must go and all the chains around our soul.
Yes, love is a child and love makes us go
into the future where freedom is given to all
and slavery is gone and love has won.

Communication technology magic

Isn’t it wonderful?
That we can drink from the spring
Of knowledge of great minds
Sitting in our bed room?
Isn’t it amazing!
That we can make a tour of the world,
To places never imagined
Sitting in our bedroom?
Isn’t it fantastic!
That we can rub shoulders
With stars, kings, and queens
In ivory towers
Sitting in our bedroom?
That is the reality of today’s world;
Magic of modern communication technology;
Fruit of the human mind;
Human mind more than magic;
Magic we have only begun to see;
The best is yet to come.

Endless ocean of thoughts

Every human mind is an endless ocean of thoughts. Continuously they flow. Along the way, some are captured as water fetched from a stream; but the rest just keep journeying. No one has more right over these thoughts than another. You are free to capture as many as you can, group them together to form ideas with which you can change your life and change the world.

A new airplane era is coming

There is nothing conceivable that the human mind cannot achieve.

A new airplane era is coming. Airplanes will be as common as the cars we have today. This shall be the airplane era.

Air planes shall be owned by individuals; and they shall be as common as cars today. Traveling even to visit a friend or relative in the same town shall be by air. There shall be airplane taxis. Cars will be the poor man’s means of transportation just as bicycles are today.

Do you see this as possible? I see it. There shall be air routes in the cities and parking lots for the air planes. The people who will be living in that era will know how to handle the issue. Many buildings may have to be put down to provide for the air routes.

Never say because you cannot understand how something can happen that it cannot happen.

The faculty or instrument called the human mind can do wonders. Do not let your own go to sleep. Use it to think of how to make the most of your life; how to make the world a better place than it is now. Use it to take yourself to greatness.
