Revealing truth & fun puns; Michael’s highlights

"We are global" -M

“We are global” -M

“The majority of viral videos are cute animals, kids or stupid (yes I said it) kicks that make us laugh. Although Michael teaches that laughing is God’s medicine; he swings ‘out of the park’ revelations at us all on social media in the midst of everyday humor.

Those who follow Michael S Tyrrell on social media forms often find the silly humor mixed in with deep thoughts refreshing and realistic. I think maybe some of his favorite puns got more attention than did his one sentence revelations. So, below is a combination of the best “overlooked” puns as well as the heart-felt, often inspiring open-hearted confessions. In no order, enjoy and follow Michael for realistic revelations & humor.” – Shelley (admin)

Fear God and live…fear man and die-M

I laugh when ever someone tells me they are a “control freak.” I tell them lovingly… “you are not even in control of your next heartbeat, so technically… your just a “freak.”-M

Smoke and Mirrors: Resolve to Quit 2/2

Part 2 – Mirrors Revealed

Here’s the truth, what you believe about your smoking addiction, is an illusion! Addictions are predominantly divided into two categories mental (emotional) or chemical (physiological). The truth is, all addictions are a bit of both, because you cannot affect the mind without the body being affected and visa versa. Lets dispel some classic misconceptions and shatter the illusions that have kept you from quitting.

1) After quitting, you are always one puff away from being addicted again.

Really? A close family member smoked for years, she said she started to look cool. One day she read a report from the American cancer society and never smoked again.

2) Nicotine is a powerful highly addictive drug.

Really? No, cocaine, heroine and opiates like oxycontin are powerful highly addictive drugs. People have quit cigarette smoking with hypnotism, however you will NEVER find it effective with cocaine, heroine or oxycontin. Smoking is predominantly a mental addiction with a slight chemical interaction. I have never met anyone with a nicotine deficiency, likewise, I have never seen junkies snorting, shooting or dropping nicotine.

Here is a list of myths former smokers have shared with me to help you identify your own.

“Smoking makes me look more attractive, calms my nerves, keeps me thin, helps me cope, gives me confidence, helps me focus, makes me look “cool.” ‘

What do YOU believe? Do you believe a wooden stick can cure warts? Do you believe sugar pills can cure cancer? Do you believe a cigarette has power?

The truth is, your addiction is attached to a personal belief system or imagined rsmoke n mirroreality that you have created, all based upon an elaborate…illusion!

Every smoker I have encountered that has been unsuccessful quitting, says the same thing; “I can’t quit, I’ve tried everything!” Look at your words, can’t never could!

The truth is, you have tried everything that doesn’t work. Trying hard has made you skeptical, frustrated, tired and numb.

Lets change that now, first realize that your healing began the moment you started reading this article and truth is gradually replacing the lies that you have been telling yourself for years. Next, begin to laugh at yourself, seriously, see the humor in you, Gods greatest creation being afraid of a piece of paper with tobacco stuffed in it! (If your still not laughing) remember the scene from the “Wizard Of Oz” when Dorothy and her friends were shaking like leaves in the presence of Oz, the great and terrible, when all of a sudden, Dorothy’s dog, Toto pulls back the curtain revealing the real Oz, a short old man with a loudspeaker, smoke and mirrors! Now realize, you don’t have to work or try harder, just change what you believe, change your mind and you will change your LIFE!

Let me leave you with one last story: Years ago, a dear friend of mine (lets call him, David) was beside himself because after trying everything, he could not stop smoking. David’s wife was pregnant with their first child and he wanted to quit before the baby was born. Many of David’s well meaning Christian friends offered suggestions, but it was the advice of a new convert that changed David’s life, he said; forget the patch, forget will power, this is what you do. Every time you walk out to the dock to smoke, hold that joker in the air and say, “God, You know I hate this, but I have been powerless to stop, what can you do for me?” On David’s seventh trip down the dock, he threw his cigarettes into the lake, that was over seven years ago and he has never smoked again.

 I love the word, Emmanuel, it means: God with us! Friend, you are not alone in your struggle.

He is always there, and created you with the ability to overcome any obstacle in your way. I am looking forward to hearing your stories, please write and let us know if this article was helpful.

It is my prayer that you will be ringing in the New Year with a prayer of gratitude on your lips, instead of a cigarette. LOL, which is short for: Lots Of Love, Michael

Sanctity: The Gift of Life

As I write (originally written Feb 2012) journalists regardless of their political persuasion are equally outraged at the Presidents decision to bypass the Constitution and usurp authority over the Catholic Church concerning birth control, contraceptives and surgery (a political term for abortion.) I will try to uncover the heart of God in this post in lieu of my own emotions on this “hot button” topic.

You see life is a gift, the greatest gift of all. You didn’t create your life, it was created for you.

Genesis 2:7 Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.

Always remember, life never requires a right to exist… it IS existence personified. Life does not depend upon man’s permission to begin anymore than it requires mans permission to end. Can you imagine if the government started legislating gift giving? Would you be comfortable with that?

China and some provinces in India are already legislating God’s greatest gift, children. In China, each family is limited to (2) children, with that being said, for years the Chinese have been aborting females so they could have (2) males to carry on the family name. In poor provinces of India they are doing the same thing for a different reason, though they are relatively poor, their culture demands a very expensive dowry upon marriage. Today the result of both countries attempt at “playing God” has dire consequences. For the Chinese, the ratio of men to women is astounding, thus a diminished race, increased homosexuality and an obvious rise in violent crimes, especially rape. In India, the problem is on a much smaller level and several orphanages have begun to take in girls to spare them from abortion.

Rule of thumb, whenever man tries to be God, the result will always be devastating.

As I am writing, I am finding that most (not all) dictionaries, Wikipedia entries and government periodicals try to domesticate abortion where it appears to be at the same level as having a tooth pulled! Then I found this definition: Abort: “To terminate or bring to a premature end because of a problem or fault.” So I looked up the word terminate and here is one definition: “To stop suddenly, murder or assassinate.” Look at these definitions, if life does not require a right to exist, who wants to take responsibility for something that is not theirs to take? And what was the problem or fault, a child is an inconvenience, not a gift?Newborn Gift

I am so thankful that several of my adopted friends had birth mothers who chose to bring them into the world so they could be adopted instead of deciding they had no reason to be. (BTW, you would be shocked to find out how many well-known, musicians, artists, poets and world changers came from the stream of adoption). Think of all the songs, sonnets, sculptures, seascapes and psalms the world would have never experienced if these lives had been terminated.

I read this quote by Ronald Reagan yesterday and marveled at its simple wisdom; “I’ve noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born.”

How can those who have freely received the gift of life deny another the same virtue? I don’t know about you but I am actually tired of everything people don’t want to talk about being branded as “politics,” I am not talking about politics I am talking about the sanctity of life. For me the term “political life” is an oxymoron! My life didn’t come from Washington D.C. it came from my Father in Heaven, and it is sacred. Psalm 139: 14-16 “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the Earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”

Whenever God wants to change something, He brings a child into the world! Isaiah 9:6 “ For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.” Verse 7 of this scripture tells us that this government and peace shall have no end. The prophet Isaiah is not talking about any Earthly government or system of man, he is talking about a world outside this world, a government far above Washington D.C. (in case you fear this post is political) which rests upon the broad shoulders of the Almighty forever! Every four to eight years our administration in Washington changes hands. Change comes and often the result is financial vulnerability or security, war or peace, love or hate but regardless, innocent ones are aborted and denied entry into our world. We take life yet God continues to give life. In fact, God loved this world so much that he gave the ultimate gift, His only Son!

The reason God did this was so that humanity that lived in darkness, beneath the drop ceiling of His glory could put their trust in a Son from heaven who was not corrupted by the Earth. How did we treat God’s Son? We tried to abort Him, but the grave couldn’t hold Him even our corruption was no match for His love. And because He lives today, there is one who redeems the children we abort and saves all who call upon His name. His name is Jesus. He is a redeemer, we are called consumers, He creates, we destroy His creations. Remember, this month’s topic is: Natural Pregnancy Health…. Pregnancy IS natural, Abortion is not.

In our lifetime we would be hard pressed to find a more outspoken advocate for the unborn than Mother Teresa. Whether she was home in Calcutta with the Sisters of Mercy, or receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 1971 or the guest of honor in Washington D.C. at the National Day of Prayer, her message was loud and clear “Stop aborting your babies, if you do not want them send them all to me.” With a speechless audience including Bill and Hillary Clinton and Al and Tipper Gore, this weak, tiny (in stature only) nun pointed her finger and said “Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching the people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.”

On another visit to America, Mother Teresa was invited to the White House to have lunch with Hillary Clinton.

During lunch, Mrs. Clinton asked Mother Teresa this question; “Mother Teresa, why do you think America has never had a woman president?”

Without skipping a beat, Mother Teresa replied, “Because you have probably aborted her.”

There is no fear in love and Mother Teresa was fearless, fearful people never change the world, selfless love always will. So what is my number one tip for natural pregnancy health? Keep your baby… and receive the greatest gift of all… Life! – Blessings, Michael

The Yeast of Your Problems

Have you ever walked into a kitchen right about the time a fresh baked loaf of bread comes out of the oven? The aroma of fresh baked bread is intoxicating and it fills the entire house with…. Temptation! Then there is the aesthetic value of the golden brown crust virtually spilling over the pan, crunchy on the outside yet hot and moist on the inside. Ok, I confess I just took a break from writing and toasted two slices of bread and covered them with real butter, yum! It is amazing to me that a tiny little organism called yeast makes the bread dough raise and expand; it doesn’t take much a little goes a long way!

This month’s topic is candida albicans, a fungal yeast that can cause numerous health conditions if allowed to proliferate in the human body. If you have read any of my previous articles you are well aware of my angle, I find a spiritual application for each months health topic and leave the clinical info to the guys (or girls!) in the lab coats! With all of that said, candida albicans can make your life miserable, I know I suffered with it for years.

As a teenager, I was blessed with great skin. In high school I would see kids walking the halls with acne covered faces and thank God for my clear skin. When I entered my mid twenties however, things began to change! I developed a form of cystic acne that left untreated usually resulted in permanent scarring. I made an appointment with a dermatologist and he gave me a prescription for tetracycline and said I would need to stay on it indefinitely. Before long the acne disappeared. A few months later other symptoms started to surface, a toenail fungus, bloated abdomen and brain fog (spacey feeling). I went to the doctor and he could not find anything wrong. My health continued to decline, I became weak, tired and started to develop pain in my joints and trigger points for this the doctor prescribed prednisone. Now remember at this point I am a twenty-five year old musician with a poor diet and absolutely no idea what I was doing to myself!

After taking prednisone the joint pain subsided however the bloating got worse and I started bleeding when I used the bathroom. I didn’t notice it for some time but I even started withdrawing socially, my bubbly outgoing personality was morphing into a depressed, isolated survival.

After a year of antibiotics and months of prednisone my immune system started shutting down. I had to avoid sick people like the plague, as I had no defenses left. One day as I was walking in downtown Atlanta and I came across a heath food store and went in. I had no way of knowing that I was about to meet a man who would change my life forever.

I looked past the counter at a man with a kind face and a name tag that said “Bill”. He looked over his glasses at me with that; “you have never been in a health food store in your life” face, then he said, “can I help you son”?

Maybe it was his kind face, maybe it was my desperation but I broke down and told him everything, without emoting he said, “It won’t be easy, but we will beat this thing” What “thing” I asked, the next sixty minutes was like Neo meeting Morpheus!

Bill took saliva samples, checked my pulse, looked at my eyes, had me fill out an exhaustive questionnaire and finally the verdict… you guessed it, candida albicans! Little did I know this “chance” meeting with Bill would catapult me into a lifelong study of health and wellness which would eventually bring me to you today dear reader.

Like I previously mentioned, I will leave the research data and clinical research to the professionals, my job this month is to bring hope and peace and a little spiritual correction to those who suffer or have loved ones who are suffering with this potentially devastating condition. I know what you are thinking, “did you recover”? And if so “how did you do it”? Yes, I recovered, how I did it is another matter all together. You see, there is no “one way’’ of attacking candida albicans it is a living organism that plays a vital role in the body, as long as it remains in check.

 You see it was created to live in symbiosis in your body. God created your body to operate flawlessly as long as there is balance (homeostasis) When we abuse antibiotics, take prednisone (steroidal) and live on a high carbohydrate low protein diet, we create an imbalance in our body which in turn creates the ultimate environment for candida albicans to proliferate. Candida albicans favorite food is sugar, the more you feed it, and the more it grows. So even though candida albicans is more prevalent in females, it is extremely opportunistic anyone with a diet of predominantly carbohydrates (sugars and starches) who is using antibiotics and/or suffers from a deficient immune system is a prime target. Another problem with candida is it doesn’t want to leave it likes the environment you have created for it so it will morph into resistant strains that will require you to occasionally change your protocol to have success beating this stubborn foe. In advanced cases Candida albicans can permeate the blood/brain barrier, which can cause a myriad of problems including psychological issues like, forgetfulness, depression, confusion, brain fog, mood swings even mania. Likewise candida often permeates the intestines causing digestion problems known as leaky gut syndrome. I suffered from all of the above and recovered and so can you IF YOU DON’T GIVE UP!

I wish I had more space to go into detail on my personal protocol, I will share what I can in the space allotted and I would highly recommend reading every article in Barton Publishing “home cures that work” so you will have a comprehensive attack plan.

THE PLAN! 

The first thing you will need to do is radically change your diet! For some of you, removing sugars, starches and most dairy products (especially cheese) from your diet will be a titanic challenge however it is nigh unto impossible to succeed if you don’t. Believe it or not the candida in your body is causing you to crave the food it needs to survive! When I learned this it made me mad enough to do something about it, there was no way I was going to let an opportunistic fungus tell me what I was going to have for dinner!

The next step was realizing that doctors were not initially the modality that offered the best solutions, as many were in denial of the condition all together. There are many wonderful natural alternatives that are extremely effective. Outside of the multitude of candida cleanses available online or at your local health food store, here are four things that you can try that helped me initially.

  1. Pau de Arco tea, a wonderful and unique tea made from the red lapacho tree bark is your new best friend, drink it as often as you like.
  2. A quality probiotic, I used “Bio K” but any good “multi specie” probiotic will help as you will need to get as much “friendly” bacteria in your system as possible to offset the candida overgrowth.
  3. Deodorized (social) garlic capsules at least three times a day and finally
  4. Caprylic acid, this little dynamo is derived from coconuts and will create a ph environment that creates havoc for candida! (Important side note) remember, candida albicans is a living organism if your case is advanced, any remedy that is effective is actually “killing off” the candida, and therefore during the die off stage you may experience a Herxheimer reaction or healing crisis. This healing crisis is completely normal yet can be uncomfortable, symptoms may include, headaches, body odor, dizziness and flu-like aches and pains.

There is nothing to be alarmed about and the quickest way to get instant relief is an old school coffee enema (instructions can be found on google). Everyone responds differently to candida protocols, if you are uncomfortable going it alone you may want to seek a naturopathic doctor in your area or contact one of our qualified contributors.

 Mark 8:15; “Be careful,” Jesus warned them. “Watch out for the yeast of the Pharisees and that of Herod.”

Finally, here is a secret to overcoming your condition. The medical community has an overarching description of candida interestingly they call it a yeast infection. When baking bread the yeast or leaven is added to the dough to make it rise. In the Old Testament especially the book of Exodus, twelfth chapter we see the Israelites are instructed to rid their homes of yeast for seven days and to, verse, 20, “Eat NOTHING made with yeast. Wherever you live, you must eat unleavened bread.” A closer examination of the text will help us unlock the mystery. The yeast of the Pharisee and of Herod had a root… PRIDE, which fueled their hypocrisy. You see, leaven or yeast causes the host to rise, become puffed up, self-absorbed, self-centered just like it causes bread to rise.

When we become prideful or self-centered we begin to believe the whole world revolves around us! God was not concerned with the yeast from a nutritional standpoint, it was a symbolic decree, which rightly interpreted said, I want a humble people not a prideful posse of self absorbed worshippers. You see, he asked them to eat unleavened bread, or as it is commonly referred to, humble bread. You see friends, when I was suffering with candida I completely adhered to the proper diet, took all of the right supplements, read every book on the subject, consulted with experts and ultimately only found an element of success. And one day (with help from my wife Lillian) I realized the truth, I had become so obsessed with my “cure” my wellbeing, that everything became about me! As a minister, counselor, friend, husband, I had abandoned my call to give and was only concerned with receiving! When I began to help others with their burdens, mine became lighter, when I began to push past my discomfort to comfort others I was comforted. When I resumed my place as a healer, I was healed! Was the therapy helpful? Yes! Was the diet important? Yes! But the healing came quickly once I determined not to make candida albicans the motivating factor of my life. Pride is subtle it cloaks itself beneath suffering so stealthily that you may believe that nobody cares how much you are suffering, you can actually believe that your condition is more important than anything else in the world.

I read this once and it cut me to the heart, “I once complained that I had no shoes till I met a happier man with no feet.” Friend, if you have candida you WILL recover, but if you live a self-absorbed life of pride, candida will be the yeast of your problems. When you help another hurting soul you will soon discover the healing power of these words, “ It is more blessed to give, than it is to receive.” Be Well! Michael

The End?

Three days after 9/11, I made a prediction that angered many. I said: “As terrible as this is, it is not enough to bring the harvest.. great disasters of epic proportion will occur around the globe until man once again repents of pride, arrogance and ambivalence toward God.” We are a superpower? There is only one superpower… God ALMIGHTY! If He is ALMIGHTY, how mighty could we possibly be? We can’t even plug a 6″ pipe in the gulf that we opened! Superpower? we are dust. You can expect a lot more disasters to come, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, solar flares, blighted food and water and economic collapse, wars between nations, all until man bows down and proclaims HIS LORDSHIP. We are seeing “Humpty Dumpty” lived out in real time, all the kings horses and all the kings men, couldn’t put Humpty together again. Only God can save our nation, not another politician or pope or poet, GOD ALONE. If you are a true believer, you have nothing to fear, if you are not, you have everything to fear! Everyone is making a big deal out of 2012.Someone asked my opinion the other day, I replied: It makes no difference to me, I live EVERY day as if it were my last day on Earth. Those who put their trust in God will never be ashamed… People always focus on what they don’t want, I am awaiting the greatest harvesting of souls in history. Did we think there would not be a cost? The end will NOT come before a final ingathering of souls. Simple equation: if you don’t see an explosion of pure evangelism before 2012, then chalk up another “Y2K” hysteria. I personally could give a crap what the mayan calendar indicates as well as any other pagan literature, I have in my possession THE WORD OF LIFE! Food for thought, If the Mayans were such keen prognosticators of the future… how come they couldn’t forecast the demise of their own civilization? Yet Millions will trust their word over THE WORD! Things that make me go… Hummmm? God is a man of His word, it alone contains all the information I need pertaining to life and Godliness. Christian… Come out of her (world system) and be separate unto HIM as an ambassador of His KINGDOM. Don’t be fooled by fear mongers and fortune tellers, Hear the voice of God for yourself… If the “elect could be fooled” the only compass to follow is His voice, Selah …. Let those who have ears HEAR what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to His church-

P.S. I a friend of mine said this during a discussion of this very topic “yes and your right, we go out and evangilise on the streets and it’s like people don’t care anymore, they are hard, like a total disrespect for the things of God. I really don’t understand.. ” and I answered with “It is simple, we have shown the world a cardboard cut-out of Jesus instead of the genuine article. They have only experienced an industrial “self-seeking” form of Godliness, sans any real power. The good news my friend is that a Romans 8 people is emerging in time to gather a harvest… just in time!” Yes Amen!

Man Centered Church

Something to ponder, perhaps our “western” theology greatly differs from God’s actual divine nature. Is what we call worship, worship to Him? Is what we call beautiful, beautiful to Him. Are the celebrities we have created on Earth, known in Heaven? Have we become a little to familiar with a God we barely know?

To quote a friend “Shame on the preachers that preach cunningly shaped doctrine of men. Shame on the teachers that teaches what serve only to enrich and exult themselves. Shame on the prophets that prophecy for profit. Shame on the evangelist that goes only after the numbers shame on the pastors that fleece the sheep. Shame on the worship leader that made it entertainment. Shame on the people who wanted it this way.”

check out this link below for a parody of what I am talking about.
