First – It Is Ridiculed
When Rhonda and Rev. Malkmus first launched Hallelujah Acres on February 12, 1992 in that little town of Rogersville, Tennessee, the concept of regaining health through simple diet and lifestyle changes was not received very well.
The very idea that by simply changing what a person ate or drank people could regain their health and eliminate further physical and even mental problems was ridiculed by most in the Christian Community, with pastors being the most vocal critics against this new concept.
Second – It Is Violently Opposed
The ridicule was often followed by violent opposition as pastors and Christian writers castigated Rev. Malkmus for his attempt to get Christians to stop putting harmful substances into their bodies – which he claimed were the cause of their physical problems.
Many in the Christian community grew especially upset when they were encouraged to stop consuming animal sourced foods which these ridiculers said God told us we could eat in Genesis 9:3.
Third – It Is Accepted As Being Self-Evident
Well, here we are almost 20 years since Hallelujah Acres had that humble beginning in the little town of Rogersville, Tennessee. Almost all the ridicule and violent opposition has ceased.
It has stopped because during these years, tens of thousands have given testimony that, as a result of making the diet and lifestyle change Hallelujah Acres has been teaching, they have recovered from over 170 different physical problems — including even terminal cancers.
Today, Hallelujah Acres sits on 170 acres of beautiful land, publishes a FREE bi-monthly magazine read by over a half-million people; publishes a FREE weekly electronic Health Tip which goes out to over 40,000 homes weekly, has a staff of over 50 employees, and has trained over 9,000 Health Ministers to help take this health message to the world.
These Health Ministers are located in every state in the United States as well as in 45 foreign countries. Over 900 pastors have gone through our Health Minister training and thousands of churches around the world now provide a health ministry within their church, offering people an alternative to the medical/drug approach.
Currently Hallelujah Acres is building a village that will include some 600 residences, including 190 condominiums where people can come and live in a Christian Community that emphasis healthy living. Available to all residents will be all the support provided by Hallelujah Acres to assist in living a healthy active lifestyle – complete with paved street-lighted sidewalks, Café serving healthy tasty food, the area’s largest Health Food store, along with many other amenities and nearby shopping.
You would be absolutely amazed to read the mail received daily from people around the world telling of the improvements they have experienced in their health after applying the teachings of Hallelujah Acres. One lady who had been recently diagnosed with cancer said that she had received letters from over a dozen friends and loved ones encouraging her to check into the Hallelujah Diet and Lifestyle as an alternative to conventional treatment.
All “new truth” goes through three phases. It is so exciting to have finally reached that third phase!
Reaching that third phase has not been easy, but it for sure has been worth it! We get to see multitudes of God’s people being restored to health by simply applying these Biblical truths Hallelujah Acres has been sharing with anyone who would listen.
And to think that we have been able to share this life-restoring and life-saving information without cost to those who listened and applied makes it even more exciting.
Jesus said, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
