Bill Clinton & Veganism

Karlon Cromwell Article Leave a Comment

Being healthy takes more than just exercise, rest, sunlight, and staying connected to God. It is important that we eat the right foods and drink lots of water. In  a recent interview on the Letterman show former President Bill Clinton  talks about what caused him to change his  diet -

Dr. Esselstyn who did research in 1985 discovered some fascinating benefits of eating healthy foods -

In the above video we see how our bodies are truly made up of the food we eat. We also see that Nitric Oxide is produced by the endothelial cells when we eat a plant base diet, this process of plant based food brings to mind the system called Biogenesis which states that living things need other living things to live.

Men have polluted the soul temple, and God calls upon them to awake, and to strive with all their might to win back their God-given manhood. Nothing but the grace of God can convict and convert the heart; from Him alone can the slaves of custom obtain power to break the shackles that bind them. It is impossible for a man to present his body a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, while continuing to indulge habits that are depriving him of physical, mental, and moral vigor. Again the apostle says, “Be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.”

Joshua Network has had its share of changes. We started with just an idea of creating media that shares and glorifies God. Now we this website, our facebook page, Google+, twitter account, Pinterest instgram and even Soundcloud. The journey seems long, though it’s only been a year and a half. One of the key components for Joshua Network are our posters we try and create them as often as we can as we believe they spread a message quickly below is our most recent posters:   The above size is what was placed on instagram we also posted it to our Facebook page and google+. How this posted came about was only by God. Emily Perkins is the woman in the image and on a separate project out in Michigan I took the time to meet with her to shoot a few images and despite her schedule we were able to meet.   The idea was to capture a nature scene that gives the viewer the break down of how nature always has a lesson to teach us. After searching a bit I found a quote on how Christians should be like evergreens always wearing the spirit of Christ. Emily executed the focus and concept flawlessly she needed very little directing so I can only give credit to God for creating the location, time and talent.   Stay tuned there will be additional posters from this shoot.

Poster Quote from “My Life Today.”

The man who loves God meditates on the law of God day and night. He is instant in season and out of season. He bears the fruit of a branch vitally connected with the Vine. As he has opportunity, he does good; and everywhere, at all times and in all places, he finds opportunity to work for God. He is one of the Lord’s evergreen trees; and he carries fragrance with him wherever he goes. A wholesome atmosphere surrounds his soul. The beauty of his well-ordered life and godly conversation inspires faith and hope and courage in others. This is Christianity in practice. Seek to be an evergreen tree. Wear the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. Cherish the grace of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness. This is the fruit of the Christian tree. Planted by the rivers of water, it always brings forth its fruit in due season.

Work in March

Karlon Cromwell Updates Leave a Comment

March proved to be a very busy month at least for me. Though Joshua Network has been a bit quiet the opposite
has been true for myself. A big Part of the task has been photography and production work for individuals as
well as companies. Regardless of the busyness I took a day to work on a shoot with Deswacy and the results were
more than I expected.

The idea was just to get comfortable with doing a few concepts with Deswacy but we ended up with several great shots.

Blessings in Bible studies

sa Current events Leave a Comment

There is nothing more beautiful in coming together with other individuals who desire to grow into the knowledge of Jesus Christ through Bible study. There has been a quite a decent amount of lessons learned in having them.

Stemmed from our usual small group bible studies on Monday in home and local. It was decided to extend invitations of our bible studies to others who are not able to join us locally.  Technology certainly has its place and time, when most needed. After winning a $400 gift certificate for Best Buy, a place where one can purchase electronic, computer devices etc, I decided to dedicate this laptop to the Lord primarily for ministry purposes.

Of course, one can never replace personal touch, in the era that we are living in, and in reaching out to others who have a thirst to study and to connect with others across the nation, we have been having our weekly studies thus far on Daniel and Revelation.

Feedback was given how many were blessed including myself, and in initiating this others would be compelled to start their own small group bible study in their local regions.  In a time like this is so imperative and needed to understand the times that we are living in. Who knows, perhaps this can be an initiative of Joshua Network to host a study on these two important books. Many Christians may feel intimidated in leading such a study, or perhaps shy out in thinking they are not qualified to lead, teach or take the time to study these books for themselves, I believe sincerely that God does not called the qualified, but qualifies the called. All who are capable in exercising the brain and expanding the understandings of what is to many a “mystery” book.

My prayer is that as these studies continue, that we will internalize what lessons we can draw from these books and internalize also the blessings in bible studies. For it is another way of getting better acquainted with each other, but most importantly with our Savior.

Bible studies are essential especially it fortifies our faith, affirms our faith, and it is a constant reminder of Whom we believe.

God is indeed an awesome God, and what I love about His word is that it is never stale, always fresh and new, baked from the oven. Every time we open the Bible to read, we are yet to discover new treasures and new gold in the same passages! Most importantly, its life changing power and impact in our lives!

Your Heart

“There your heart will be also”

Last week we focused on the word “Heart”.
In our daily Tweets and Facebook statues we combed
the scriptures for these verses and shared them with you.

These scriptures support each other and help enforce
the thought behind them.

The scripture below was used as well and one has to wonder it’s meaning
particularly the sentence that says: “For where your treasure is, there your
heart will be also.”

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin
destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves
treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves
do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will
be also. – Matthew 6:19-22

The sentence shows us that where we set our minds
is where our desires will be including our money
look at Proverbs 23:7 and also Matthew 5:27-30 for more
clarity on our thoughts and actions.

“Holy Night”

After listening to the message “The Morning Star Rises: Oh holy Night” I felt compelled to write this article. The message speaks about infidelity a topic many today shy away from. In this message however the angle is a bit different, the unfaithfulness talked about here goes far beyond that of a husband and his wife click below to watch.

Reflection of Joshua Network 2012

sa Events, Updates Leave a Comment

Well, where can I start? I have to say it has been thus far this year, an interesting experience being involved in the ministry. I can recall the vision being born and the significance of the name Joshua. We know names speak volumes, knowingly the name Joshua means “He saves“, is indeed a reminder for us all that He saves. I do know that ministry does save not only others but ourselves. I recalled the challenges that were faced and the deadlines that had to be met, the hurdles that we had to leap along the journeys of this ministry. As a Canadian, I would not ever think I would be involved in a ministry based in the United States. So, what I learned from that was, our God is limitless beyond boundaries.

       Although, Joshua Network had some hiccups here and there, and yet still throughout the mountains and valleys, God has always intervened. Jesus comes to mind when He says that if we have faith as little as a mustard seed, we can indeed move mountains. He sure did alright, in every step of the way.  From the Food for Life shows, to the visitations and the reaching out, from the official launching of the network earlier this year, His glory was manifested.  Let us not forget, our first annual retreat this summer which was a blessing in and of itself, and out of this experience the outreach and the  divine appointments held in New York.

         God knew that He would hold us back from having our retreat in another state, but as usual He always had something bigger up His sleeve for us. We had the privilege to meet and minister unto many individuals who needed to hear messages of hope, healing and happiness, but also had the privilege to meet with a bible worker in the North Bronx Sda church, who gave us further advice in terms of  being recognized as a ministry.

We look forward to what will be in store for us in 2013 and onwards  by His grace, and as we anticipate His soon coming, we anticipate to grow as individuals and as a team, as we network with other like minded individuals, and to those who thirst and desire to have Christ as their best friend. We desire to put to fruition, the counsels outlined in Habakkuk 2:2-4, where it refers to writing the vision and making it plain, for we know the vision shall speak, and by faith it will come to pass, and that the just will live by faith.

By faith Joshua Network was born, its purpose, its goal, and by faith we desire to finish the work and hasten His soon coming through the gifts that God has entrusted to each of us so that, as a team, it will be a blessing to all, for He saves.

The best is yet to come, keep us, this ministry, and our future projects and current ones in your prayers and we thank you for your continual support.
