September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

‘Faith Healer’ Reportedly Tricked Women Into Giving Him Nearly $100,000 to Cleanse Evil Spirits

A man was arrested and booked by police in Hallandale Beach, Fla, last week after reportedly telling two women he was a faith healer who could cleanse them of evil spirits and impurities.

These women claim he subsequently defrauded them of nearly $100,000.
The individual in question, Joe Alvarez, 32, is somewhat of an anomaly, as police are unsure of his real name or identity and are still working to confirm the details.

In addition to pledging to cure these women of impurities, Alvarez also reportedly told his victims that money was evil and that only he could help them improve their spiritual health.
He reportedly performed a “ritual” in which the women were asked to give him their money, which he would then burn in front of them. But police claim that, unbeknownst to the women, Alvarez would change the real money out for fake bills before setting the cash ablaze.
“The money that you got that you have is unclean so you have to take it out of the bank and keep it with you, like sleep on it, just keep it with you because of all the cleansing that I am doing with you and your body,” one unnamed victim told KNBC-TV, apparently paraphrasing what Alvarez had told her.
She added, “That money was supposed to come back to me but then it’s like we got to burn it now, so if you have this big bin and he just threw it in there and then I’m like ‘My money!,’ and he’s like ‘You have to leave, you have to leave, like everything’s getting dark, there are spirits that are going to come in, leave fast before they follow you.’”

Two women, Evelyn Taveras and Cassandre Soray, have gone on record, claiming they met Alvarez on separate occasions at the Aventura Mall in Miami, the Sun Sentinel reported. They claim that, over time, he collectively defrauded them of nearly $100,000.
Taveras said she first met Alvarez on Feb. 6 when he complimented her aura and offered to help her “align her chakras” (major physical or spiritual energy points in the human body).
Alvarez, who introduced himself as a faith healer named “Dorian,” then sold her three crystals at the tune of $5,200 each, claiming that they would help maintain her aura.
Later, Taveras, who had told Alvarez that she was storing $39,000 under a mattress that she planned to use to open a business, said that he came to her home unannounced; after Alvarez left the house, the $39,000 was allegedly missing as was jewelry, adding up to a total loss of $48,700.
“I was very upset for being so naïve and gullible,” Taveras told the Sun Sentinel. “I felt like, ‘What an idiot. How could you fall for this?’ It was very demoralizing.”

Soray, too, reportedly had a similar encounter. After meeting Alvarez, who told her his name was Robert, in Dec. 2012, she said she ended up giving the man a total of $37,000 to “cleanse the impurities” within her.
Police tracked the man down and arrested him on Nov. 27 after he ordered materials pertaining to astrological readings and spiritual healing from a printing company.
Hallandale Beach Police Det. Edward McGovern called Alvarez’s ability to peg the women for being spiritual and use this information to get into their personal lives “impressive.”
The total sum allegedly taken from the two women is $85,700. It is unclear how many women aside from Taveras and Soray were involved with Alvarez or if the sum is higher.
He is now being held on $16,000 bond and is charged, as KNBC-TV noted, with two counts of grand theft and two counts of obtaining property by gaming.

Yeah, what these FAKE 'fake healers' have in common is, 1) They are heavily into the occult, and 2) They rarely even mention the name of Jesus.
