Gluten free has become a popular diet. Why all of a sudden we cannot eat gluten? I think there is a very good reason, and it has nothing to do with gluten itself. Like dairy, it is not the milk or the wheat that is the problem. It is what is in these foods. Milk at one time was a suitable food, but not necessary for good health. What has happened to milk and wheat? The wheat protein,gluten is contaminated as is the milk protein, casein. Milk is often infected with Leukemia Virus, and wheat is often contaminated with glyphosate (Roundup).

It may seem to be impossible, but it is an acceptable practice to spray wheat just before harvest with glyphosate. Not only wheat, but other grains and beans. There is evidence suggesting that this chemical poison injures humans in a number of ways.

It has also come to our attention that sewer sludge is now being used in farming. Sewer sludge is contaminated with toxic heavy metals and other injurious things that can contaminate our food. I know that there were and probably are wheat farmers that have used sewer sludge on the wheat crop. This can account for people having problems with wheat. It is serious. Root crops especially pick up heavy metals and hold on to them.

Sorry, cp. I thought I had successfully copied from the lesson, but my clipboard did not grab it, and I posted something from DA.   You asked "Is the author implying a modern application bing the scarlet woman is the US ?" The author identifies the scarlet woman on the beast.   

Lesson 12 *March 16-22

The harlot is pictured as extravagantly arrayed in purple and scarlet and adorned with ornaments of gold and precious stones and pearls; such adornment was a practice of harlots in antiquity to enhance their power of seduction (Jer. 4:30). As the color of blood, scarlet corresponds to the oppressive character of this religious system.

The harlot’s dress counterfeits the attire of the high priest in the Old Testament, attire that included the colors purple, scarlet, and gold (Exod. 28:5-6). The blasphemous inscription on the harlot’s forehead also replaces the priestly inscription, “HOLINESS TO THE LORD” on the miter of the high priest (Exod. 28:36-38). The cup in her hand reminds us of the vessels of the sanctuary from which Belshazzar, king of Babylon, and his guests drank wine (Dan. 5:2-4). The cup in the harlot’s hand uses the appearance of truth to conceal the wine - the falsehoods of Satan’s end-time religious system - in order to seduce the world away from God.

The harlot Babylon is further described as drunk with the blood of the saints and the martyrs of Jesus who died as a result of their witness to Christ. This bloodguiltiness links end-time Babylon to medieval apostate Christianity, which was led by the papacy and responsible for the deaths of millions of Christians who remained faithful to the gospe l.

Can the US be part of the system called Babylon? I think so, but the lesson identified her, the harlet, as being led by the papacy and a fallen church. According to the lesson, the beast would be the political power which would be the US being led by the papacy. Is this not the truth?   The "harlot Babylon" is the "scarlet woman" united with the power of the state.

God's character is the real measure of greatness. Jesus' outward poverty in no way detracted from His divine glory. He condescended to humanity to show the true dignity and glory God intended for us in character--available to all of us if we are willing to open up our hearts to Christ fully, invite Him in, and let Him transform us by His grace!

"Because their understanding was darkened by selfish prejudice, they could not harmonize the power of Christ's convicting words with the humility of His life. They did not appreciate the fact that real greatness can dispense with outward show. This Man's poverty seemed wholly inconsistent with His claim to be the Messiah. They questioned, If He was what He claimed to be, why was He so unpretending? If He was satisfied to be without the force of arms, what would become of their nation? How could the power and glory so long anticipated bring the nations as subjects to the city of the Jews? Had not the priests taught that Israel was to bear rule over all the earth? and could it be possible that the great religious teachers were in error?"  {The Desire of Ages, page 242, paragraph 3}

Let us humbly follow Christ in the path He has for us today--even if it goes against the grain of what many teach. We must hold firmly to the word of God and accept the humble Lamb, Jesus, in preparation for His second coming in glory as a Lion!

cp, I think Wednesday's lesson makes it clear what he thinks.

The burden of Christ’s preaching was, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent ye, and believe the gospel.” Thus the gospel message, as given by the Saviour Himself, was based on the prophecies. The “time” which He declared to be fulfilled was the period made known by the angel Gabriel to Daniel. “Seventy weeks,” said the angel, “are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most holy.” Daniel 9:24. A day in prophecy stands for a year. See Numbers 14:34; Ezekiel 4:6. The seventy weeks, or four hundred and ninety days, represent four hundred and ninety years. A starting point for this period is given: “Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks,” sixty-nine weeks, or four hundred and eighty-three years. Daniel 9:25. The commandment to restore and build Jerusalem, as completed by the decree of Artaxerxes Longimanus (see Ezra 6:14; 7:1, 9, margin), went into effect in the autumn of B. C. 457. From this time four hundred and eighty-three years extend to the autumn of A. D. 27. According to the prophecy, this period was to reach to the Messiah, the Anointed One. In A. D. 27, Jesus at His baptism received the anointing of the Holy Spirit, and soon afterward began His ministry. Then the message was proclaimed. “The time is fulfilled.”


I don't see how that answers the question as to who the scarlet beast is.

I agree with Dorine about the blackstrap molasses for anemia.  Also back to celiac disease.  I have a friend who was diagnosed with celiac years ago and ignored it because she didn't want to give up bread.  Her new doctor told her that was not an option anymore.  She is doing very well now on a totally gluten free diet.  Gluten free does not mean grain free or fiber free. 

Grains not allowed
Avoid all foods and drinks containing the following: 
Wheat
Barley
Rye
Triticale (a cross between wheat and rye)
Oats (in some cases)
While oats are naturally gluten-free, they may be contaminated during production with wheat, barley or rye.

There is a larger list of grains they can eat.  Gluten isn't in fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts or seeds.  Plenty of fiber there.

Amen, Sister Dorine! God does have a remnant that believe Jesus and the prophecies. All are without excuse. The time of the Savior's coming was written many years before He came. His death and the giving of the gospel to the Gentiles all was revealed in prophecy. The fact that the seventh and last church would be in a Laodicean condition, but would see revival and reformation is all revealed in the prophetic record. Also, we who believe the Record, know that Jesus is coming soon, just as some knew of His first coming.

They speak from both sides of their mouths, with forked tongue.  One the one hand they call it "climate change," to hide the fact that it is colder in some places, rather than warmer; and on the other hand, they claim that the earth is really (really, really, come one, please believe us) warming.  They can't have it both ways.  And all this hysteria over an alleged 1° C increase in a century.  And I'm supposed to panic?

Every day I hear references to "climate crisis" on the news reports.  Whether or not Goebbels said it or not is irrelevant, but "If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it."  And that's what the global warming alarmists are hoping.

Monday's application of the scarlet beast seems a little vague. Is the contributor making a double application for the scarlet beast which the woman rides ?  The scarlet beast on which the woman sits has 7 heads, vs. 3. In verse 9 it says the 7 heads represents 7 hills. Pagan Rome  was seated on or near 7 hills. Today Vatican city occupies this area. Is the author implying a modern application being the scarlet woman is the US ?
