Avoiding the Damage that September Rapture Hype Teachings can Cause

Share


In less than an hour, I’ll be resting for 24 hours. No work. No food as I fast. Me, my family, and God will be together for Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Thousands, maybe tens of thousands, will be waiting for the Rapture as predicted by several prominent bloggers, vloggers, and “spiritual leaders” leading up to this crazy month.

When the new day dawns, many will have their faith shaken. The arguments that were made for this coming day to be the day were often pretty compelling. There were mathematical calculations made against the Bible and other documents. There were visions and dreams attempting to confirm September 23, 2015, marked the great Rapture.

Those who heard and believed will have to question their theology, their value systems, their discernment, and who to trust. A few months ago, we made a video to help those hearing these “prophecies” and either starting to believe in them before or wandering what went wrong afterwards.

The Day of Atonement is being called a Jewish holy day. It’s not. It’s one of God’s Holy Days, His Moadim. The modern day church has disregarded them and called them too Jewish, but they have been and always will be for all of God’s people, Jew or Gentile.

With that noted and understanding that we cannot know the day or the hour of our Lord’s return, we do know that certain events must take place first. Some have. Many have not.

If you’re reading this before, during, or after September 23rd, do not allow your faith to be shaken. These times are definitely special. The idea that we weren’t Raptured at this time is not a sign to lose faith. It just means you need to refer to the Bible and be more selective about your teachers.

Yes-Sir takes a look at ways to prevent sun damage.

It’s summer again, and while having fun in the sun is probably your main priority, it is important to ensure you keep your scalp protected from harmful UV rays – it’s just as prone to sun damage as anywhere else. Here are some tips to maintain healthy looking hair in the sun.

Hair damage, while a lot less serious compared to skin damage, is still be important. UVA and UVB rays damage the cuticle strands, resulting in weak, dried out hair that is prone to breakage. Hair previously dyed, or weak is a lot more vulnerable to the rays.

If you have a short haircut use a sun cream with a high SPF factor. Oil free prevents any unnecessary grease while absorbing easily into the skin. Jack Black Double Duty Moisturiser, has a SPF of 20, while also adding extra moisture to prevent the sun from drying out the skin.

Applying a treatment oil, such as, Argania Spinosa Treatment Oil which adds extra moisture that stays locked in. This oil prevents from breakage and softens coarse hair. Application is simple – add a small amount to wet hair – so if you come from the sea it can ensure the sea water doesn’t dry it out. For bearded men use a few drips of “Sir Henry’s Beard Oil” to lock in moisture, and prevent a dry, frizzled look.

Wear a hat. Keeping the sun away from your hair is the best type of protection. Covering it with a baseball cap can protect the hair from any damage.

If hair has already been damaged use a good conditioner such as, Billy Jealousy Hair Strengthening Conditioner or Jack Black True Volume Revitalising Conditioner to restore vitalization. Leave the product on for a few minutes to allow the hair to absorb all the nutrients.

On a final note, be careful in the sun. Ensure to always wear sun protection to prevent burning. Be extra cautious during the hours 12pm – 3pm in a hot climate – this is when the UV rays are at their strongest. Stay hydrated, out of the sun and rest up if burning occurs.
