Biblical And Natural Law Principles Regarding War – Message by Dr. Chuck Baldwin on Aug. 13, 2017. Note: In this sermon, Chuck Baldwin recommends the book War is a Racket by USMC General Smedley Butler.  It is a very thought-provoking treatise.  It was first published in 1935 and Butler’s observations were quite prescient.

Nature’s Way Valerian Root 530mg, 180 Capsules. JWR Notes: This is my preferred muscle relaxant for back pain, and also my favorite sleep aid for very stressful times. It is important to note that it is not habit-forming!  It is wise flor every prepper family to keep some Valerian capsules on hand.

  1. May I recommend “Raven Rock(The Government’s Secret Plan to Save Itself, While the Rest of us Die)”? Drives home to me another reason to be very well prepared. And fascinating reading.

  2. Another related message by Pastor Chuck Baldwin was “The Crime of Aggression”. DVD is available and inexpensive. It was so powerful and helpful to me to look at wars (and nations) as Christ would.

  3. If one is looking for a sturdier alternative, albeit will cost more, to the locker that is recommended above. Look at/check out Strong Hold Products. http://www.strong-hold.com/ They are American made and constructed of 12 gauge steel. We have them at my work as well as the more common type of lockers of thin sheet metal and as of yet not had one of the Strong Hold lockers have any issues. Where as the others are all in poor shape. Dented and or warped from being moved about and so the doors won’t close correctly, handles are broken or broken off. Not to say they won’t work fine for home use as these get pretty heavy use day to day but the Strong Hold ones are very sturdy and the shelf’s can hold a lot of weight.

  4. Does valerian roots work for severe back pain. Example: back pain caused by arthritis in the spine? Case of fused bones?

    Heat helps suit the pain as well. Massotherapy can help. It has been prescribed by a doctor for people with bone fracture. When it hurts we want relief. We cannot have to many bullets to aim on target. I am talking about pain.

    JWR,Thank you for your Valerian suggestion as pain relief. Your Valerian is on my list of suggestion for people who ask me for what works for pain. And they are many people,with this kind of problem, so your efforts on this page, will hopefully help quite a few of them.
