—— “The prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” ~ James 5:15-16
—— “Save the sick” does not mean only illnesses of our flesh but of all things that affect righteous behavior, “faults” that impede the “purification” process. We have prayer requests for others; and, Sister BonnieQ comes to “confess her faults” to our brethren and to seek only “your fervent prayers” on her behalf. First, the following is an excerpt from one letter-of-four mailed by her daughter, Sister María, in order to give you an idea of the what and why for Bonnie’s confession; which follows thereafter:
—— “The undersigned is both daughter and State appointed caregiver for HSN customer Ms Quesinberry (67yo in June). About 8 months ago, her Multiple Sclerosis— since age 8, diagnosed at 23yo— was diagnosed as having entered “rapid progression.” She also has Lupus, RA, heart problems and other health issues. In the last 5 years, she has suffered a statistically fatal brain aneurysm, broken back 4 times, broken ribs, and has been living in a HUD subsidized housing nightmare of management and tenant abuses.
—— “At the onset of seizures, convulsions and black outs, my mother elected to give up driving and lost most of her independence; which resulted in depression and actions totally unlike her usual financial restraint; the most damaging of which are the sudden orders from your company and 2 others we are petitioning. Her excellent credit is in jeopardy, for she cannot pay 2-Visa credit charges amassed near or at $20,000 and she has nothing to collect from an estate at death. She does not remember making most of the orders and was unaware of all charges until recently notified.”
—— Dearest Brethren, “Truth is Love” and I love each of you; so, please know that what has happened was not intentional and it has not in any way affected my ability to fulfill God’s assigned tasks. The hardest thing I had to do was tell my daughter what I had done: aside from the fact she is my daughter, she is also my caregiver and communicates with all my doctors. When I added that she must want to ground me or some other measure of punishment, her response was, “Wow! That is totally unlike you; but I don’t think I need to do anything, Mom. You already are beating yourself up terribly and are seeking solution.” The next hardest thing is to confess to you, my brethren in Christ. Still, I must do as James’ scriptures direct.
—— I have gone to our Lord for His forgiveness and guidance to understand what happened and why, the best solution and to find what there is to learn from the awful experience. Added to the reasons in the above letter is the fact that, for the last 10 years I have been persecuted for God’s Truth I give the world, and for the last year I have been a prisoner in my apartment because of abuses and false complaints. I am a people person, so not interacting with my neighbors and speaking my mind are foreign to me.
—— In March, I became aware of what happened between November 2010 and March 2011, four months of being brainless and temporarily insane: excessive charges to my two Visa accounts for purchases from QVC, HSN and ShopNBC. One of my Visa’s allowed $5,000 in over limit charges “before rejecting” additional charges and notifying me. In fact, it was HSN that first notified me because a “flex- or value-pay” was denied. At the time and not knowing the full extent of damage, I gave them my other credit card.
—— On top of the above charges, in February I made a $200 error in my check register, for which my bank took a cash withdrawal on my bank Visa but did not contact me; thus, I was oblivious of the overdraft. I have never made a mathematical error regarding my checking account because I always run a double calculation to prove balance. Apparently, that time I did not: another nail of depression. I did not even do a bank reconciliation and did not notice the $200 deposit on the next bank statement. I learned of it when the cash withdrawal showed up on the Visa statement; although, at first I did not question it; thinking it was part of the charges I had made. Du—uh!
—— I was devastated upon learning just how much I had charged as well as the bank overdraft. Until now, I was debt free, “owed no man,” and never in my life had I done such a foolish, irresponsible act. In addition to prayer, my first response was to accept a pre-approved credit card offering no interest for 18 months and had planned to transfer my outstanding balances knowing that no interest would mean lower payments. They withdrew their offer when it was learned I had co-signed a loan for my foster daughter’s car a year ago; which was not a problem in that I knew she would pay and has been paying that loan. She desperately needed the car for her job.
—— God’s response to my prayers was that I contact QVC, HSN and ShopNBC to ask them to willing take back all that I ordered in exchange for credit to my Visas. They have their money, so they are not obligated to accept returns for credit; especially considering their 30-day return policy has expired. María mailed those letters; and, she is mailing a letter to the Amazon Visa who allowed the over limit charges. Another letter might go out to Bank of America Visa, if needed. While I did make a few payments of about a total of $1000, before the balances soared, I cannot continue to make payments now that they total almost $700 per month, OR I will not eat and cover co-pays on necessary meds: my monthly SS income is only $1011, about 65% below poverty level.
—— Never in my life have I experienced depression; burnout yes, but that is an entirely different situation and set of behaviors. As a counselor, I understood the malady to some degree but had no idea what it felt like or how it affected behavior and memory. María lives in Oregon and comes up as caregiver when I have doctors’ appointments; so, she had no idea that something was wrong. When I received notice and by God’s plan, it jarred me out of depression’s darkness; though I still have no memory of most of the orders I made but do have the proof in products and current billing statements. It seems I simply kept putting away the items and, sight unseen, was not aware of the volume of clothes, shoes, bags and jewelry: things of this world, which also greatly troubles me.
—— While this is devastating to me and I am desperate to clear my name and accounts, I have learned much from this experience: now I understand how those who suffer depression think, which they do not, and act. For over 21 years, I was married to a man who suffered depression as far back as he could remember; yet, I never understood how he could look at a $5 monthly increase in debt yet not understand the impact on our full debt obligation, how he could appear to function normally yet blind to what he was doing, how he sabotaged himself in the process: all I knew at the time.
—— Now I understand how depression functions on a daily basis and the fervent prayer needed from us for all who suffer. Fortunately and unlike those many, I am not and will not need meds for depression. In fact, I was on an antidepressant several years ago as solely a remedy for chronic pain. It had the negative effect of causing me to sleep walk and suffer mild depression that I could recognize. I was off the med immediately; albeit, that med possibly could have added to this experience. I have learned by God’s reasoning that this was due to combined, unrelenting events that ultimately overwhelmed me.
—— What I do remember is watching those programs, another thing I had never done, seeing something I liked, thinking I needed a few new clothes, and noting that the “flex-pay” or “value-pay” was only $8 or $12 or $19 per month for 2 or 3 or 5 months coupled with what I thought were only a few full price charges. I saw only those value-pays, surely easy to pay. In all cases, I thought I ordered only one of an item, yet I found in my closet “one in every color” of a number of garments; yet, I remembered only that I wanted it in, say, gray or blue or black.
—— To see now what I have done is disconcerting at best and, at worst, frightening that I could do these things with very little memory of it. There is no doubt in my mind that God snatched me out of a depression that many people suffer for ever. The moment I exited depression, I instantly asked our Lord for His forgiveness and asked for the understanding of not only what happened but also to comprehend how it happened while also seeking guidance in how to remedy the disastrous results. It especially concerns me, not only because we are instructed to “owe no man,” but also because we are so close to seeing our Savior in the clouds. I desperately want to be in the clouds with him.
—— I asked God if this could be due to MS because depression is common among MS patients, though I had not experienced it, or could it have occurred due to part of my right temporal lobe now gone and possibly affecting short-term memory. The understanding He gave me was that it was not due to either possibility; instead, it was due to emotional overload during the last 5 years or so, as noted in the letter excerpt above, compounded by continued abuse and being a prisoner where I live. If I had been aware, I might have avoided these consequences: it was so gradual over the past year that I was not aware, instead I thought I handled well the persecutions, abuses and loss of independence.
—— Perhaps even, this also happened because I had always taken “pride” in the fact I was self-disciplined and handled my finances responsibly, that I would NEVER do such a thing. We all know “pride goes before a fall” and it is not a part of Christ’s righteousness. I thought, erroneously, that I had shed “pride” at least 15 years ago when it was made known to me that it was “pride” to NOT ask for or accept help when needed. Well, I obviously did not cover all the pride and assumption bases. Still, I feel compelled to add another charge to my sins: coveting. Surely I coveted the many “things” those programs offered. I do not recall ever coveting anything, but it does make sense in this situation. As you have read, my sins are many in this case, sins I sincerely never want to repeat.
—— To ease your minds, however, please know that I have cut up and thrown away the only two credit cards I had in order that this never happens again. A few have suggested bankruptcy in that the credit card companies can charge off the debt, but I do not want to do that. In my mind, to take that route would be equivalent to theft. I desire a solution that is equitable and do-able for both them and me; it is neither my wish nor God’s will that I avoid financial responsibility. My greatest fear, for which I earnestly pray, is that I do not lose God’s Seal upon me since 1976.
—— For total purification to occur before Christ arrives, as Biblically taught, God made it clear to me that I still had a part to erase: not only of pride but also in thinking people choose to be depressed when there is an easy remedy that they are not willing to pursue; so here I go again. All they had to do was reject it in Christ’s name? True, but on the other hand, how does one reject something of which they are unaware?
—— Pride and assumption, two thoughts man has taught we should have: believe a person chooses a negative path as opposed to choosing a positive; pride in our work, pride in success, pride in self-sufficiency, pride that God chose us, pride-pride-pride. We have nothing, are nothing and are not chosen by our own strength, also of which we have none on our own. Thus, I ask that you also ask our Lord for Him to show you if there is “assumption” and/or “pride” or “coveting” or, as the Pharisee, “thanking God that you are not like the lost” or any other sin of which you might not be aware; for we all must be purified of all sins, be we aware or unaware, “before” Christ returns so to Him we can be “presented a righteous people presented.”
—— I humbly ask each of you to pray on my behalf that Jesus not only forgive these actions but also that a fair remedy occurs, one I can handle, and that this never happens to me again or happens to any of you. While my mind always has been clear concerning the gifts God has given me and of the tasks that come with those gifts, I never again want to experience such a total lack of self-control and self-discipline. It amazes me that a person in depression can be clear in one matter yet blind of another: know this to be true.
Branch Davidian Update:
—— Sunday night, 04/17, CNN aired a special 2011 documentary about the Waco travesty that began 28 February 1993 and ended 19 April 1993, supposedly in memoriam to all who died— “Faith, Fear and Fire.” RDK found it odd that CNN did this just one month after RDK presented its 03-18-11 “Extra Oil: EG White Warned,” which included the Davidians’ story. Until two weeks ago, there was no mention of a new documentary. This led some RDK members to suggest it was a Federal response to RDK’s presentation.
—— After all, we do know that the Feds have been monitoring RDK’s online activities for quite some time, as is the World Council of Churches who in the last month began sending emails to us that contain only a title of topic but no link to it. As you might recall, in the year 2000 RDK sent an email to the World Church requesting its list of members. They either checked their archives for our email address or gained it from one of our websites, either Remnant Doctrine Keepers and/or Seventh Seal Library.
——We feel certain Federal authorities were not amused with the truth about the Constitutionally illegal and unnecessary assault that killed 86 Davidians, among them at least 24 children according to CNN. Their presentation showed numerous film clips of ATF’s attack on Waco’s Davidian compound in Texas, and included interviews with only three survivors; two of which were a married couple actually in the compound at the time and a woman who had left the Davidians well before there was any threat. Another survivor was interviewed but not taped live. And, they interviewed yet another man currently clearing the property with the intent to rebuild both the buildings and the faith.
—— The couple evacuated their three youngest kids but lost their four oldest children to the fire those tear gas canisters forced into the building at high velocity, had caused several explosions of either natural gas and/or butane. In mere minutes, the building was fully engulfed; only a precious few adults and children escaping through a nearby exit.
—— As they previously blamed the Davidians for everything, ATF and an FBI negotiator, that CNN interviewed for the 2011 documentary, claimed Koresh ordered the fires set and said they had an audio tape of him giving the order; which they did not play despite having aired numerous tapes of talk between the negotiator and Koresh. The couple, on the other hand, denied Koresh ordered fires set or that he set them. Koresh already was suffering several gunshot wounds, one of which he showed on video, thus was not moving about the compound.
—— The FBI negotiator stated that, based on his numerous conversations with Koresh, he had determined and reported to ATF that Koresh was “a manipulative narcissistic with psychopathic tendencies,” further stating, “The members are low self-esteem people easily manipulated into following whatever Koresh said.” The couple declared, “Wow, they didn’t give us much credit,” and adamantly stated they would not have joined the faith if they had felt that Koresh was not directed by God. To this day, they feel he was an oracle of God. On the other hand, the above woman said everyone believed Koresh was the Messiah incarnate and accused him of saying he was the Messiah.
—— On one video Koresh, taping a plea for ATF to back off, said ATF was “putting members and my wives (plural) and children in danger.” This does not really support ATF’s claim that Koresh was sleeping with a lot of women and certainly does not prove “sex with kids,” the latter of which the couple denied ever happened. Koresh also videotaped only two “wives” with children, one of the wives pregnant with her second.
—— Contrarily, the above one survivor woman said a number of women began having children by Koresh after he purportedly delivered a “message from God:” the men were not to have sex, even with their wives, and that he was the only one to have sex in order to increase pure membership numbers for the time of Christ’s return: she was afraid of being the next woman, though she did not state why she believed this but did leave the Davidians, nonetheless. The couple declared her statement to be untrue. The other man interviewed but only his picture shown, joined the Davidians later. He found nothing amiss and believed Koresh was gifted with God’s Word of Truth.
—— As for the “arsenal” the Davidians supposedly had, an ATF video of weapons purportedly retrieved after the building burned to the ground was aired. It might be difficult to prove all those guns belonged to the Davidians; however, during the 51-day siege Koresh did a video showing how the group repaired weapons to sell at various gun shows, which is well documented and which, as he said, is not against the Law in Texas.
—— The last man noted above is currently in the process of rebuilding the compound buildings for the purpose of restoring the original California Branch Davidian faith established in 1955 by Victor Houteff, whose leadership later was succeeded by Koresh. The man was the one who first warned the Conference SDA church of Koresh’s activities and, at the time, suspected he was a danger to the church. He later learned the truth about the Branch Davidians’ beliefs and of Koresh’s teachings, deciding then to rebuild the compound and faith for these perilous Laodicea times.
—— While it is obvious that Koresh erred when it came to having more than one wife, he was nevertheless willing to die for God, Christ and his belief in both as well as God’s Word Truth; at least concerning God’s seventh Sabbath. Like the Mormons, Koresh showed scripture that he felt proved God wanted him to have several wives and many pure children to increase the size of Christ’s church. None of the members disagreed.
—— The FBI negotiator readily admitted everything that happened was unnecessary and, in the end, had pleaded with ATF to back off and leave the Davidians alone. Moments later and already angered by ATF’s four dead and six wounded, they launched the final full-scale attack using military tanks and armed ATF ground agents. The rest is a history that sent to all Sabbatarians a clear warning of what is to come soon. But only a few will die, if not already counted as Davidians, for Christ will not be far behind. We must be totally purified in time for that glorious day so incredibly near.
Dearest Brethren, please know that BonnieQ asks for nothing of you, only humbly asking your forgiveness of her confessed faults and asks for your prayers on her behalf as well as all the brethren. Bonnie gratefully thanks each of you for fervent prayers as she also prays for each of you to continue to have faith in God’s Word He has given her for all of you.
Also, we ask prayer for our brother and RDK member Weldon: his health failing rapidly and currently is in an Oklahoma City nursing home. Weldon is Sister María’s dad.
Do not put yourself in danger of losing your Seal, as Bonnie feels she might have endangered God’s Seal upon her. That has to be a painful feeling, for such a loss is the greatest fear we all should experience. Fear of God is a good thing.
Much love and prayers,
Sister BonnieQ, God’s Handmaiden

Dear Bonnie, Your story . . . and Mine
This is amazing! Actually, if I had not come to know you, I would have said this is impossible! Then, I thought back some 20 years ago when my eldest was three years old. She had a virus attack her brain and, to put this mildly, we experienced the start of an awesome ‘spiritual time’ in our lives. It was like God on one side and Satan on the other.
After two series of tests at Children’s Hospital, it was made clear that Seugnet had lost her ability to walk by herself, even to sit on her own— she had to be supported by pillows. At two she could run her own bath and at two and a half swim on her own. Within twelve hours, after being put to bed then awakening the next morning, she had difficulty doing what had been so natural to her. A Pediatrician directed us to Children’s Hospital for a series of tests. The outcome was unsettling. The medical team suspected cancer of the brain or the nervous system.
When my daughter’s health kept deteriorating, I made a second trip to Hospital. My wife could not accompany us, as she was too far pregnant and not allowed to fly. The tests were repeated and a CAT scan recommended.
We transported by ambulance, accompanied by a nurse, to another hospital where the scan was done. As we climbed into the ambulance, my daughter started to convulse. The co-driver of the ambulance took her head in his hands and she immediately settled down in my arms. At the same time there was deadly silence in the ambulance, as if a presence were there. It was so real that the nurse commented on it. The driver then asked me, “Did you see what had happened?”
I answered, “Yes, I will remember how you held her head, and do the same when this happens again.”
“No,” he said, “prayed for her, and she will be healed!” Although not understanding the power of prayer at that time, I could not dismiss what I had felt in the ambulance. I have never in my life experienced so much serenity. After arriving at Children’s Hospital I felt compelled to phone my wife to explain what had happened. She seemed distant, but I knew she was greatly concerned about Seugnet.
Over the years I would think back on this incident, each time I felt downhearted about my daughter’s condition. Also, I recall the over-whelming desire to phone Amor, as if not doing so would be like an act of disbelief. The presence of the Lord was so touchable— this kept me going in the years thereafter.
The next morning when Seugnet woke up, she asked for scrambled eggs! For the first time since her illness, she was able to eat by herself. Previously her trembling hands did not allow this.
The medical team led by a Professor physician came to her bedside while she was eating breakfast. He noticed the trembling had almost vanished and the strange movements of her eyes were no longer there. He had asked permission to film these movements the previous morning prior to her CAT scan. For some reason the film was not done. Puzzled, he asked, “Was she given additional medication that I ordered?”
It was then, the second time I felt compelled to explain what happened the day before. The medical team was extremely surprised and uncomfortable. They kept checking their files. Slowly the interns disappeared until only the Professor remained.
After the Professor left, I sat down by Seugnet’s bed and tried to make sense of what had transpired. It was then I realized what belief in God and His healing means. I had felt that to believe, to enable healing, one had to know and have the ‘art’ of believing— that it was something one has to do, and that I was not capable of that ‘doing.’ I also understood that if healing depended on my ability to believe, then my daughter would never heal. Telling others what I had experienced was like a healing. I also recognized that believing is not what you have to ‘do’ or ‘earn’ but to allow God to do within you— even if one does not understand any of it. I guess I am saying: “Believing is accepting what you cannot do!” Therefore, letting God do it for you.
From that morning on, Seugnet’s healing started. It took her 8 years to learn to sit, walk, and run again. She attended a special school where she received therapy. She later went on to mainstream school and completed her final school examinations— not failing any academic year prior to the incident. In this year of 2010, she will complete her final year of university, allowing her to enter school as a teacher!
As parents, our walk with the Lord has never been the same. And, of the 7 children that had the same condition, two survived— Seugnet and the son of another parent.
Getting back to your journey, Bonnie— amazing, but I believe it. Thank you for sharing … half brain and all (LOL!). Blessings. Frans
First, I would remind everyone that twenty years ago doctors did not know a fraction of what they know today about the brain; so, God’s power over Seugnet’s case was even more evident than in mine. Although, when it comes to our brains, doctors still know very little about how it works; especially when severely damaged.
I love the closing of your letter, Frans: “Half brain and all.” I am rolling on the floor, laughing out loud! Oh, well, dear brother! You are not the only one who has found the humor in all this. ROFLOL! You, myself, María, my foster sister Helen, my best friend Anita and more. I am so glad they see it as I see it. Even Dr. Hakimian began teasing me after pointing out the loss of brain tissue. My COPES rep laughed with María when she called to update my file. He recalled that I find humor in almost everything, even the seemingly tragic. And, you are right, Frans; it IS God on one side and Satan on the other. Time is so short that the old snake is enraged and relentless against Christ’s own.
It is a good thing, though, that it is not “half” my brain gone missing. LOL! It is about 1/3 or more of only the right temporal lobe. Praise the Lord for that! Interestingly, however, there are cases both in England and the US where a child was born with only half a brain: the parents were told they would not live very long and then only as vegetables. Both grew up to graduate college with no visual evidence of functioning with only half a brain.
As you so graciously pointed out, Frans, the finite impossibility of my case allowed me to realize that many readers might feel the miracle untrue; so, it was a good thing María was a witness as well as neurologist Dr. Hakimian at Harborview Hospital in Seattle and, as a result, my neurosurgeon Dr. Sekhar, Multiple Sclerosis Dr. Kraft, primary care Dr. Lauinger and numerous other University of Washington specialists on my convoluted case. As all know, I have many detractors in the world; each hell-bent on discrediting me and/or God’s Truth I speak. They might find this one a gold mine for dishonor. LOL! Sad for them, as the Lord says their lies are “blessings unto me and curses unto them.”
The University of Washington’s MS Research department found that MS patients’ brains constantly rewire themselves, one of the reasons we suffer chronic fatigue. Every spot an MS lesion appears, a small portion of that brain area dies, then the brain immediately sets about rewiring another section to do the job of the dead part. There are 100s of lesions all over my brain, a great number of them first found when I was 23-years old.
Obviously, my brain has been rewiring itself since I was between 6 and 8 years old. This work seems automatic when a young child. If it occurs in adults, they often have to be taught to instruct the brain to rewire itself through intensive therapy— mainly because most adults BELIEVE death results from even a small portion of the brain dying— but, we know that “ALL things are possible with God.” There is nothing He cannot change and/or overcome for us and through us to His glory!
Remember that, my precious brothers and sisters in Christ. Nothing is as it seems in this old world, just one vast illusion. Keep your chins up, stand fast in God’s Truth and speak it to all whom you encounter; for you know not whether you speak to someone who is cold or lukewarm or of a perverted mind, this latter of whom cannot be reached or turned. Keep going! The days are short and Christ is returning quickly.
Please do share all RDK posts and testimonies, which includes Frans’ shared miracle, with everyone you know. You never know, one of them just might reach a lukewarm or cold or both. Praise the Lord! And, I thank each of you for your ever-present love, prayers and support. I can do nothing without God and Christ and YOU.
Much love and prayers in Jesus,

P.S. By the way, María finally got a return call from UW Surgery on Monday afternoon 12-27. Wow! Only 10-days after their panicked call. The doctors feel that back surgery is not necessary at this time, unless I sustain a full break: findings were a “compression” fracture typical in people my age. Great! I did not want anyone cutting on my back. It means no delay in the oral surgery on 01-20. Praise the Lord! Although, I must be very careful until it mends. They are instructing my primary Dr. Lauinger to do follow-up MRIs on the T5 fracture as well as the T6 growth— sometime in the future, I suppose.
Health Update Letter and Prayer Requests
shared by Remnant Doctrine Keepers (RDK)
29 October 2010
Hello, my dearest and beloved brothers and sisters in Christ! “Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: according as He has chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.” ~Ephesians 1:2-4
Please forgive RDK’s lack of communication lately. My daughter María and I are spending much time seeing doctors and enduring tests at the University of Washington Medical Center— 176-mile round trip from Shelton 3 to 5 times per month since April. The trips are very hard on me, putting me down for a few days each time. Those miles do not include María’s 320+ miles r/t from Portland-Shelton-Portland: she is so tired.
First, I attempt here to express an inexpressible gratitude to and appreciation for all of my brethren and my daughter’s mega efforts on my behalf. As a professional caregiver, she goes way beyond the call of duty— miles beyond, both figuratively and literally— for all her clients, including her mother. She is the perfect daughter much adored and loved, a precious blessing from my Father God. I pray she knows this: I do tell her.
If some of you are not on FaceBook, you might want to join; I do put links there to prior Bible poems, visions and lessons posted in this last church age: it is much easier on me because I cannot sit long enough to prepare new or updated lessons. When you join FaceBook, then look for Bonita M Quesinberry, add me as a F/B friend and I will add you to my list of friends! If you look at my FaceBook Wall, you will find the links already up; after joining me, new links will appear on your F/B home page.
Dr. George Kraft, chief physician of UW’s Multiple Sclerosis (MS) research center (est. 1888) and MS Clinic, has conducted numerous tests and MRIs as well as called in a number of specialists— i.e. spine, neurology, rheumatology, dental, etc— and finally, after 2.5 years, I got a primary care doctor last week. Dental work is almost complet— perhaps February 2011— with the exception of oral surgery to remove a very large cyst holding infection in the left side of the roof of my mouth: to be scheduled soon. God is so awesome: He has protected my brain! His miracles in my life never cease.
The powerful MRI Dr. Kraft did, as well as escalating symptoms of MS, confirmed— again! —Bonnie has relapsing/remitting MS but now in rapid progression: no doctor can delete the diagnosis as Dr. Teuseco had, my former primary care doctor. Symptoms also reveal Lupus; albeit, blood tests do not, which is not uncommon as it is very illusive but causes one’s immune system to attack vital organs/connective tissue: very painful.
Also, a large tumor— or cyst, not sure which at this time— was found sitting on the T-6 (thoracic spine) nerve root, which is causing considerable pain and MS spasms in my upper chest and back: feels like being squeezed to death and difficult to breathe. Another MRI will be done to see if it is growing, then they will determine what to do about it. All of the cervical discs are bulging due to the cervical spine being curved in the wrong direction; which has resulted in me now being 1.5-inches shorter: now 5-ft 3.5-in. LOL!
My new primary doctor reinstated the few medications needed, especially for blood pressure; the latter of which has helped immeasurably. It was thought it would be safe for me to take once-daily injections of Copaxone®, a relatively natural MS treatment that has shown to prevent more brain lesions and, in some cases, even deleted existing lesions. It does not, however, reverse existing nerve damage. Alas, the sixth and seventh injections resulted in violent seizures, the first of which lasted 1-hour and the second at 1.5-hours. This likely happened because I have seizures anyway but nothing as bad as these two; so bad it could have caused another brain aneurysm: praise the Lord, He did not allow it. Needless to say, I no longer take Copaxone®; but, many patients have good results.
Dr. Kraft also tried me on Naproxin® to treat MS inflammatory pain. The third dose resulted in a severe MS episode that lasted 8-weeks of excruciating MS spasms/pain. So, it was back to prescription Ibuprophen®. I do not know why he wanted to make the change in the first place. Alas, I am still recovering from both drugs and begged off trying any new meds. Hopefully, these new doctors now understand that my body does not tolerate, for the most part, man’s pharmaceuticals: God’s herbs are most effective!
This year has been spent getting on HUD and public housing waiting lists in an effort to leave Fir Tree Park Apts, better known as “A Vipers’ Nest.” The torment and harassment against me continues to escalate and includes management, to the point I cannot even go outside: the last time I did, I was falsely accused of confronting the neighbor who assaulted me, arguing with her and calling her names— never happened.
Last week, María and I both were confronted by two angry neighbors— the two worst— when we returned from a medical appointment: anger based on management telling them I had filed ID theft charges on them: after discovering they had gone through some of my specific garbage. I had not; rather, I contacted my bank and credit reporting agencies to have each ‘Fraud Alert’ flagged for the ‘possibility’ of ID theft occurring: this required a police report but no charges, unless or until ID theft occurs. Management knew this fact; thus, it is obvious she is part of the problem as well as three specific tenants.
On Sept. 16th, someone hit the back of the building at my unit (bedroom) so hard it shook me on my living room sofa. Rachael above me ran to her friends outside, they all went to management saying I pounded on my bedroom ceiling so hard they could hear it fifty feet away at the front of the building; and, once again, management served me with a Notice of Violation that included threat of eviction. This, during 8-weeks of suffering a severe MS episode: I could do nothing, not even lift my 2-lb. Ferret. If I pounded the ceiling so hard, there would have been a huge, gapping hole in it!
As a result of numerous false complaints followed by management’s repeat Notices of Violation, I have engaged my attorney in case they attempt to wrongfully evict; which would result in never again being able to rent in subsidized housing. That would put me on the streets. Sadly, this all began when management discriminated against my disability 3.5-yrs ago and, after moving in, they shifted to retaliation/harassment. After moving Rachael in above me, they began/continue to encourage her drunken torment of me.
The above are just a few events among an average of 1 to 2 or more per month. We know the above is part of Satan’s persecution of Christ’s sheep; but, it still is difficult to endure, though I can only with prayer. So, please add your prayers that our Lord gets me out of here as soon as possible: it feels like the stress is killing me and certainly is responsible for MS going into rapid progression with added neurological events that include total blackouts. Our Lord’s grace is sufficient for me, just as it was for Paul.
I ask that you pray for María: her body has been retaining massive fluids due to steroid treatments for asthma. We are looking for non-steroid remedies and have started a few appropriate herbs. She also has an overflowing plate: regular Oregon caregiver clients, caregiver to me, raising her 3-yo granddaughter, a home and husband. She never has a moment for self. Further, please add sister Tammy in Florida to your prayers: much has happened there causing temporary unemployment to only this week getting a new job: put added financial burdens on her. Tammy also needs to move into her own place.
Thank you so much, my precious brothers and sisters, for your prayers and bearing with me during this last of our trials and tribulations. There truly are no new Bible lessons to post that are not already at our websites and, as you see on the news, the elements are continuing to worsen: as are all signs of Christ about to arrive in the clouds for our ascension. Take advantage of all we have posted at Remnant Doctrine Keepers as well as Seventh Seal Library and Biblical poetry at All Poetry —
God’s Word, all of it, strengthens and encourages us during this painful age: take advantage of it being gathered together in one place— “In these end days the wicked will lose all they have but God’s people will not go without.” It will not be long now! “Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace be with all of you that in sincerity love our Lord Jesus Christ.” ~Ephesians 6:23-24
Much love and prayers in Christ,

TN, KY, record floods claim 41, more bodies expected, water receding, Nashville hard hit in damages, new storm approaching; NYC, Times Sq. car bomb, bus bomb, ice chest bomb each of last 3 days; Gulf of MX, one leak capped but still spilling 250,000 gallons a day (5K barrels), sea turtles and jelly fish dead on shores, “waters as the blood of a dead man;” Indonesia, Sumatra hit Wed with M6.6 quake, small local tsunami expected, no reports yet of injuries, deaths, destruction; Iceland volcano disrupts Ireland air traffic again; Greece, 10s of 1000s protest banks’ debt crisis, 3 die in bank by molotof cocktail fire; AZ, protestors swarm over Immigration Bill, 2 people killed;
AZ: After years of legal protests, the Apache nation lost to the Vatican, aided by the University of Arizona, over high powered telescopes built on their sacred Mt. Graham: FED and ST Govs used imminent domain on Apache reservation, despite age-old treaty. Vatican named powerful scopes LUCIFER but defended the name as an acronym for the equipments’ lengthy title and cited their need to monitor the heavens. Does the Vatican and her daughters really believe they can stop Christ before He reaches earth? NOT!
VGIIc Fungus aka cryptococcus gattii revives in Oregon and spreads rapidly north and south to engulf California, Washington, Idaho, and Canada, reported MSNBC.com. Duke University scientists believe it is a mutated fungus common to tropical climates, the spread likely caused by global warming. It is airborne and deadly; strikes humans, animals, porpoise, trees, soil and water: thus it is inhaled and might be ingested. The threat targets healthy and immune compromised individuals. Currently, it is only airborne but not in Oregon’s water, soil or trees: it has hit Washington’s trees. How this fungus will impact plant life, soil and water is not known at this time. However, since it can be fatal to living beings, we feel it safe to assume it will be deadly to living plant life as well.
VGIIc demonstrates a 25% mortality rate with 20 out of 218 patients having died to date. It is difficult to diagnose due to most doctors not knowing about this fungus; therefore, it is crucial for people to be informed and aid in their own illness diagnoses. Many could be diagnosed with black mold spores when, in fact, it might be VGIIc.
ANIMAL SYMPTOMS: Runny nose, breathing problems, nervous system issues, possible fever and small to large bumps form under skin
HUMAN SYMPTOMS: Unabated cough for weeks, sharp chest pains, shortness breath, eventual night sweats, fever, weight loss, and headaches resulting from onset of meningitis as well as small to large bumps form under skin.
TREATMENT: There is not yet a vaccine, so current treatment is antifungal meds that can take months up to years for a cure. The under skin lesions may even require surgeries if they impede vital organs and other bodily functions.
~~~~~~~~~~ end of news brief
Threats and Health:
Threats: This last week delivered another threat, albeit somewhat veiled, in our Seventh Seal Library tag, aka key words surfers use to locate our websites and/or writings. This one is specifically intended to bring the government down upon BonnieQ: “bonnieq is a terrorist.” Already, the proper entities have proven that her phone is tapped, both her computer (despite having only dialup Internet) and webmail hacked into, the later of which had her email diverted to Hong Kong; so anything is possible. We are compelled to remind Christ’s remnant of His expectations for our behaviour, to which BonnieQ strictly adheres and strongly encourages in brothers and sisters.
We have only to observe Christ throughout His 3.5 year’s ministry and subsequent arrest resulting in His crucifixion. Even when He was called a liar, false prophet and doing the Devil’s work— which He said we also will be called— He never argued, never fought back: either argumentatively or physically. This attitude followed His arrest. In spite of beatings, badgering, humiliation and pain, Jesus remained mute: except over two issues brought up by Pilate, who found Christ without fault and washed his hands of the case.
Pilate asked if He were the Son of God. Jesus responded with only three words, “As you say.” Near the close of Pilate’s interrogation, he expressed frustration with Christ’s silence, “Do you not know I have the power to save you?” Jesus simply said, “Do you not know I can have 10,000 angels instantly at my defence? This must be.”
As mentioned in a recent Oil, Truth needs no defence. Only the wicked argue and defend the lies they believe, over which they become enraged when faced with Truth. They do not like to believe they are “dogs eating their own vomit.” We must never argue God’s Word or defend our obedience to it. We are not to protest or speak against governments, or in any way be combative or in any way violate moral law. Rather, we must be willing to die for Christ as He died for us: in silence or speaking only as the Holy Ghost moves us. Jesus fulfilled prophecy for us and we now fulfill prophecy for Him: as it should be.
Anyone intending to bring harm upon BonnieQ is totally unaware of just how greatly she is covered by both God’s angels and remnant brethren; the latter of whom take nothing for granted and never at face value. Even now, there are those who are investigating new things and people anytime she is contacted, after which the brethren reveal findings to her. True brethren have said they will follow where she goes but properly added, “It is not her we follow: it is God’s Truth.” — As it should be.
Jesus said, “IF it were possible, even the elect could be deceived.” This is to say: we are nobody’s fool to be deceived— except as fools for God; for the Holy Spirit will not allow it. No move is ever made or person accepted before every pro and con is explored and final word has been received from on high. Also, BonnieQ is a trained Christian Counselor, after God the Great Psychiatrist’s teachings, whose expertise is in the nuances of manipulation: that most insidious of tools Satan wields through the twice dead. She does not miss the multiple red flags manipulators are unaware of flying in the midst of their vile games— the ability of discernment by only God’s Grace.
As our Father pointed out in Revelation, a “few” of the saints will die shortly before Christ appears: IF one is to be her, then so be it. She has no fear of any man or of what he can do to her flesh garment, as Jesus advised. So do not fear for her or yourselves and loved ones. Fear is the Devil, not of God and His Holy Spirit. They give only peace of mind, safely delivered by the Spirit: the peace of God’s wisdom and knowledge.
Health: BonnieQ’s neurosurgeon Dr. Sahkar, upon learning she has had no primary doctor in over 18 months, moved up the date for a follow-up CT Angiogram scheduled for August (re: 2005 brain aneurysm). He was most chagrined that no one was treating the high blood pressure or managing her pain. Her daughter took her to Harborview Hospital on 14 April. The blood vessels in her brain “look good” and will not have to be seen again for 5 years: unless . . . But! God is not going to allow Satan to go there again.
Dr. Sahkar, fully apprised of the former primary doctor Tiuseco having so badly falsified Bonnie’s records that no local doctor would take her case, brought in another physician to get her set up with a Harborview primary doctor, and who said, “We are not afraid of complicated cases.” Sahkar, himself involved in MS research, also was instrumental in getting her in to see Dr. George Kraft, one of UW’s primary pioneers in MS research and head of UW’s MS Research Dept and clinic. Recently, UWTV began airing a series of 9 segments entitled “MS From A to Z,” the first of which Dr. Kraft presented and one of the other 8 by Dr. Sahkar. Could this be “it is about who you know?” BQ really did not want to see any doctors but felt compelled in order to alleviate her family’s concerns.
The appointment clerk at first said, last week, that it would be 6 to 8 weeks before she could schedule Bonnie. God obviously had other plans, for while the girl was on the phone with Bonnie, her computer suddenly announced a cancellation on 05/06 with Dr. Kraft. Yesterday proved more than an a hopeful hour: 3.5 hours.
Kraft is obviously devoted to solving MS and improving its victims’ lives; an unassuming man with not one whit of arrogance but a great sense of humor. Kraft and Louisa, a ‘fellow’ training under him, had spent an inordinate amount of time, prior to yesterday, studying her case history all the way back to age 6, as well as Harborview’s aneurysm records, and had lengthy conversations with Dr. Sahkar. They informed that Dr. Sahkar had told them, “She is an amazing woman with an iron will over all the afflictions.” Bonnie calls them “thorns” in her side: like Christ’s minister Saul called Paul.
By the time Bonnie and her daughter left, Kraft and his “fellow” Louisa had established a series of dates with various doctors, dental, and the pain clinic, all to be followed by another meeting with Kraft and Louisa on 09 July. First on the agenda is an MRI of her brain and spine next week: according to Kraft, he has the most powerful of MRI machines in the country and will be able to see what no one else has seen in previous MRI’s. He assured her, “By the time we get through no doctor will dare do the damage Dr. Tiuseco has done to your file and housing will never refuse your herbal expenses again.” Praise the Lord! When He moves, it is in big ways. Never doubt God’s power to back up Truth, brothers and sisters!
This is it for now, our precious brethren! Keep your chins up, your eyes on the clouds, your speech only Truth, and stand as strong as Jesus in the onslaught about to come upon us. Few are aware of just how fast it is approaching. God’s promises never fail; therefore His Christ’s promise to return for us will not fail. It is time!
