Breaking the Poverty Spirit, David Hino, June 22, 2012
The spirit of poverty is more than a lack of money. People with wealth can have the spirit of poverty. I have seen poor people who have a wealthy mindset and wealthy who have a poverty spirit. People who are never satisfied and hoard demonstrate a poverty spirit. A poverty spirit says, “I can’t” and a wealthy spirit says, “God can.” A poverty spirit feels weak, and a wealthy spirit feels strong. Revelations 2:9, says we can be in physical poverty yet still be rich.
I have gained much understanding about the poverty spirit from A Framework for Understanding Poverty by Ruby K. Payne; Culture Of Honor by Danny Silk and Generational curses from Paul Cox.
Payne has a number examples of people living in a poverty mindset, a middle class mindset and wealthy mindset. One example is looking at food, a poverty mindset derives value in the “quantity” of food. A middle class mindset wants “quality” food. People with a wealthy mindset want food with a beautiful presentation. Payne’s study has implications into the education system. Children with high intelligence but with a poverty mindset will continue to have poor grades. Children have to be taught to move from a poverty mindset to a middle class mindset and finally to a wealthy mindset in order to improve their grades.
movie reviews from a spiritual perspective
February 3, 2012, Carol Wong
It seemed to me that of all the pictures that have come out recently, this one would be the last one I would choose simply because it is “silent.” However, much to my surprise, it turned out to be one of the most outstanding pictures I’ve seen. True, it is a “silent” film, but to simply judge it by that standard is to miss out on a completely charming picture.
Newsletter, David Hino, May 30, 2012
Recently, my prayers have been directed to people battling cancer: Frank from The Light; Harrison from Northern CA; Joyce from Northern CA and Nancy from Oregon. So many people need a touch from God for their physical problems. Even as I write this, my mother-in-law is in the hospital for a broken hip.
“Thoughts on Physical Healing” are based on scripture and my journey for the past five years. Even though I believe in a wholeness approach to healing which includes emotional, generational and spiritual issues; when I read the Bible, God heals people instantly. Having seen some incredible healings and reading the Bible, why can’t we raise that level of healing to the Biblical standards. At the end of this article are many scriptures to declare over yourself or to another for healing.
Thoughts on Physical Healing
The Book of Eli (Feb. 5, 2010), Carol Wong
As the scene opens to a post-apocalyptic world of desolation, dust and debris, I thought to myself, "uh-oh, this is going to be a downer." It is filmed in black and white with sepia tones to give it a "gritty" look. At first, it seemed like the introduction is long and drawn out but in retrospect perhaps we were allowed a small peek at the lonely life of Walker, who at first appears to be the only man who has survived a global disaster.

May 13 was Mother’s Day, and I would like to highlight five mothers in the Bible who lived through difficult challenges. At then end of this article, I will pay tribute to my mother.
Eve, mother of Cain, Abel and Seth
She was first mother of the the world and did not know the nurturing love of a mother or father. In an terrible moment, she loses two sons. Cain, her first son, is lost to violence as he commits the first murder. Abel, her second son, is lost in death as a result of Cain’s murder. God gives her the name, Eve which means life. Her name is prophetic message to bless her spirit in the worst of moments. God calls her life even though she is surrounded by death.
