The problem with ones conversion is not, that a layman or pastor has presented the gospel to anyone in authority with a open heart. It is whether a person is heeded the calls and thus is convicted of their sin that leads to salvation. It is very doubtful that any Pharisee understood any word spoken by Jesus, unless theyâre conscious was disturbed. Yelling at Trump wonât save him any more than yelling on the street corner,â you say youâre a good man, so now, who decided what was good â. Preach the gospel, but please donât be so concerned about your results, it ainât up to us, whether we get the glory, but do it in love of the person, rather than your assumption, that sinners deserve hell, so yelling works real good.
The red wolf in Texas was thought to be extinct but has been found on Galveston island. Some for sure have paired off with coyotes. But the species on Galveston appears be the red wolf. If left alone, nature recovers.
There is also the chance many teenagers wonât return to school if schools canât open and if jobs of mom and dad dries up. Teenagers may end up leaving home or just running away. I hope parents take the online school format, and seriously consider how young children can benefit from being home schooled. But, the month we stay home may have a very hard time to return to work or school. I think China thought if their economy slows down , then everyone else should also. The cost of this virus is devastating for all.
This is India. You elected a Hindu nationalist and are surprised he wants to make war on Christianity. Many CEOâs practice some form of Hinduism. And any form of meditation or practice of calming or yoga, in fact all new age religion is a form of Hinduism. Itâs a religion that allows for class slavery, subjugation of women as lower class citizens and the infanicide of children. When Christians form ministry associations for the poor and handicapped, the average Hindi man asks, why waste your time. Maybe theyâll work themselves out of their own pit , in the next life. Whatâs dangerous as Iran with a atomic weapon is India and Pakistan already have theirs.
Churches have been running short for 3 weeks. If you have a church than runs 20,000 per week to operate and miss 3 weeks, with online giving only a 25%, staff will be laid off at the end of.month. Forward thinking can and does put many churches in a good standing; but if your church provides daycare, meals for indigent, nursing care, itâs a hard blow. If youâre in a church that is run by committee, and they ask you to be on the financial committee. Say yes, and youâll figure out that if all members tithed, you could weather most storms. But this one hurts people and the plate badly.
Oh yes there will be a public display of Godâs love for His saints during the rapture. More thoughts have come and gone since Paul dictated the words of the Lord. To be given these words as a command is quite miraculous. To comfort those who have gone before us, but make ready to those who wait. Or to warn those who simply donât heed His Call. Simply put, we donât have any idea when this is to come, but the birth pangs have become louder.
With the tragedy and vengeance of the Wuhan virus still enveloping this world, despite my utter contempt for the Chinese government, I can only surmise this virus is used by God to repent for both the believers and the unsaved.
Be wary of Chinaâs financial advice for small European nations hit hard by their Wuhan â Easter egg â virus. What better way to collapse the western economies than to make a bio weapon escape from a Chinese bio lab.
I think that there have been more cases that the victims can recover if they contact medical care and follow instructions. I have to calm myself, with my wifeâs help , am able to look at the dissuade my tendency to become depressed and worrisome. We only had 8 cases, all brought in from a high risk area and transmitted to family members. At the present time, no transmission from person to low risk grouping. The hysteria and panic is there. But keep a wary head on China. In a Tom Clancy novel, a enemy nation flies in thousands of advisors to an island state under the guise of tourism and medical assistance for an outbreak. I still believe this is a guise. Why just now does the press call Chinaâs â successful endâ of the Wuhan virus a plan for all. You start a incendiary fire, kill thousands, fire goes out and youâre now the hero. Really now, no Chinese apologists needed.
We need to pray for our own wisdom. With No groceries or essentials available , the elderly and handicapped are the last ones we need to offend. So check on your family , your neighbor, the old mean man across the street. We do not need another Katrina action committee or Rodney King rioting to think how to do things differently. Support your mayor and governor. But keep off Facebook unless to check on your folks. Donât watch the news, and stay off th Drudge Report. Read your Bible, pray incessantly, love always.
I think an alternative would be to go a brief service , M,W,F and have a service. Weâre at a small church, so we could offer 10 people gathering ( 97% recovery rate from Wuhan virus), and catch all members in a month or so. Online giving is the best option or mail in or deposit box in office. Missing church is depressing, I just think my âfamilyâ drove back home after spending the year with them. Pray the Lord will kick this problem and we can learn from this and be stronger in faith.
QC, Iâm in total agreement. You have Cuomo , who is screaming that the country needs to be on lock down. The problem is when local authorities start going house to house for welfare check and are met with an 80 year old great grandmother, holding a pistol. Thatâs when things will become a problem. In anti gun states, theyâll end up shooting the elderly woman and start a gun grab for the safety of first responders. It happened during Catrina in New Orleans.
We had a hoppin up and down pastor here in Lubbock who went on Facebook to announce he had Coronavirus, gave out live announcements. Was given a cease and desist order. Be quiet Mildred , get off line and go clean out your garage.
This is a highly contagious illness. The largest percentage of people in hospital on a vent is people of 50 plus of age with a medical condition. It remains on a surfaces over 72 hours , much like hepatitis. Keep at home be smart. We had a young foreign exchange student patient who was identified as having Wuhan virus, Then person was taken home by medical staff, told to stay home. But doe this person stay home? Nope, this identified patient leaves goes to a restaurant to eat, then goes back home. No Robert Jeffers is not the first online pastor. Umm, thatâs what SA does every Sunday. Kettle calling pot black , .. please.
Well , the Lord does use symbolic examples to get his point across. Not withstanding, a candle stick is removed from many denominations. But as for a anti christ religion, such as the LDS church, it would be wonderful if the temple collapsed.
Carl, you are so right. I pray, when this is over, Our business and pharmaceutical community, rethinks, the relationship with China is not worth our lives for the electronics, clothes, name brand shoes, and medication. Did the government or business community think that for 45 years our elderly, or youths, money, and inventiveness was worth this storm? Pay more for products? Weâve already paid more , dearly.
