August 6th The D. L. Moody Year Book

 

Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.—Acts 13:43.

HOW much would Paul and Barnabas have accomplished if they had pronounced the benediction and sent these people home? It is a thing to weep over that we have got thousands and thousands of church-members who are good for nothing toward extending the kingdom of God. They understand bazaars, and fairs, and sewing-circles; but when you ask them to sit down and show a man or woman the way into God’s kingdom, they say:

“Oh, I am not able to do that. Let the deacons do it, or some one else.”

It is all wrong. The Church ought to be educated on this very point. There are a great many church-members who are just hobbling about on crutches. They can just make out that they are saved, and imagine that is all that constitutes a Christian in this nineteenth century. As far as helping others is concerned, that never enters their heads. They think if they can get along themselves, they are doing amazingly well. They have no idea what the Holy Ghost wants to do through them.[1]

New World Order Epidemiologist And Climatologist Bill Gates Says ‘Coronavirus Misery’ Will ‘Happen Regularly’ Until Climate Change Fixed — Now The End Begins

Bill Gates estimated that the death toll from climate change would match that of the pandemic by 2060, and exceed it five-fold by 2100. The economic impact of climate change over the next two decades, he added, could be “as bad as having a COVID-sized pandemic every ten years.”

What a burden it must be to be Bill Gates, a virtual expert on anything and everything, on a mission to remake the world in his own image. He has cast himself as the savior of the world as a viral pandemic is raging, but the sad truth is that Bill Gates is not even able to prevent viruses on his own Windows operating system. But please, pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

“The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?” Jeremiah 5:31 (KJB)

Remember back in 2005 when Al Gore and his ‘Inconvenient Truth’ slideshow was all the rage? Remember how his ‘predictions’ and ‘calculations’ showed that the seas were rising so fast that New York would be underwater by 2015? Yeah, he really said that. Well, not only did none of that actually take place, the very same Liberal billionaires who tried to make us believe that nonsense now all live in seaside mega-mansions. Why would you buy a multi-million dollar home at the ocean when the sea levels are rising?🤔 Moving on…

The inconvenient truth here is simply this: liars like Al Gore, Bill Gates and all the others are only after two things, money and power. After they grab the cash, the only other thing they desire is power and control over everybody else. Al Gore, having gotten his loot, has faded from view, but Gates is still hungry for more. Bill Gates is a 21st century robber baron, but unlike his predecessors the Rockefellers, the Morgans and others, he is in the unique position of controlling the entire world through technology. Something that they could not do.

Bill Gates, if you are reading this, you are Goliath, there is no doubt about that. You have more money, power and influence than someone like me could ever imagine having. But the 5 smooth stones in my pocket say that you can, and will be beat on the field of battle. All your money can’t stop me from exposing you, your lies, your deadly vaccines and your Mark of the Beast digital ID system. You are a Philistine, Bill Gates, and I am a soldier in the army of the Living God of Israel. Game on.

Bill Gates claims coronavirus pandemic’s ‘misery’ will ‘happen regularly’ if climate change is not stopped

FROM GATES NOTES: A global crisis has shocked the world. It is causing a tragic number of deaths, making people afraid to leave home, and leading to economic hardship not seen in many generations. Its effects are rippling across the world.

Obviously, I am talking about COVID-19. But in just a few decades, the same description will fit another global crisis: climate change. As awful as this pandemic is, climate change could be worse.

I realize that it’s hard to think about a problem like climate change right now. When disaster strikes, it is human nature to worry only about meeting our most immediate needs, especially when the disaster is as bad as COVID-19. But the fact that dramatically higher temperatures seem far off in the future does not make them any less of a problem—and the only way to avoid the worst possible climate outcomes is to accelerate our efforts now. Even as the world works to stop the novel coronavirus and begin recovering from it, we also need to act now to avoid a climate disaster by building and deploying innovations that will let us eliminate our greenhouse gas emissions.

Barack Obama latest climate change hoaxer to purchase an oceanfront home

You may have seen projections that, because economic activity has slowed down so much, the world will emit fewer greenhouse gases this year than last year. Although these projections are certainly true, their importance for the fight against climate change has been overstated.

Analysts disagree about how much emissions will go down this year, but the International Energy Agency puts the reduction around 8 percent. In real terms, that means we will release the equivalent of around 47 billion tons of carbon, instead of 51 billion.

That’s a meaningful reduction, and we would be in great shape if we could continue that rate of decrease every year. Unfortunately, we can’t.

Consider what it’s taking to achieve this 8 percent reduction. More than 600,000 people have died, and tens of millions are out of work. This April, car traffic was half what it was in April 2019. For months, air traffic virtually came to a halt. Health advocates said for years that a pandemic was virtually inevitable. The world did not do enough to prepare, and now we are trying to make up for lost time. This is a cautionary tale for climate change, and it points us toward a better approach. If we start now, tap into the power of science and innovation, and ensure that solutions work for the poorest, we can avoid making the same mistake with climate change. READ MORE

Gates Tries to Justify Side Effects of Fast-Tracked Vaccine

Article Image
 • LewRockwell.Com – Joseph Mercola

As vaccine companies rush to bring a COVID-19 vaccine to market, billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates — who routinely funnels hundreds of millions of dollars to various vaccine projects — warns you will probably need “multiple doses” of any given COVID-19 vaccine for it to be effective.1

In speaking with CBS News, Gates said, “None of the vaccines at this point appear like they’ll work with a single dose,” adding that in order to wipe the virus out through universal vaccinations it will require “unbelievably big numbers” of doses. To be effective, he also predicts we will need to vaccinate around 80% of the global population so, yes, we’re talking about tens of billions of doses.

100% of Moderna Vaccine Participants Suffered Side Effects

Gates visibly struggles to maneuver through the pointed questions posed by CBS about the safety of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine (currently known only as mRNA-1273), which was recently found2 to cause systemic side effects in 80% of Phase 1 participants receiving the 100 microgram (mcg) dose.

Side effects ranged from fatigue (80%), chills (80%), headache (60%) and myalgia or muscle pain (53%). After the second dose, 100% of participants in the 100-mcg group experienced side effects.

In the highest dosage group, which received 250 mcg, 100% of participants suffered side effects after both the first and second doses.3 Three of the 14 participants (21%) in the 250-mcg group suffered “one or more severe events.”

Despite these worrisome results, the trial is being heralded as a big success, and vaccine expert Dr. Paul Offit has been quoted4 as saying we now know “that it’s safe in 45 people,” and that “it doesn’t have a very common side effect problem.”

Clearly, we have very different perceptions of reality on what “very common” means. If 80% to 100% is considered uncommon, then just what level of harm must be inflicted in order for a vaccine to be viewed as having a questionable safety profile?

According to Gates, those side effects are largely due to the high dosages Moderna had to use in order to achieve the desired antibody levels. But, if high dosages are required to create a robust-enough immune response, and higher dosages also cause systemic side effects in a vast majority of people, just how safe will this global vaccination campaign be?

Keep in mind, the 45 participants in Moderna’s Phase 1 trial were healthy individuals between the ages of 18 and 55.5 Meanwhile, over 90% of Americans are metabolically unhealthy and struggle with chronic health conditions that can make them more prone to vaccine complications.

What’s more, frail elderly are unlikely to survive serious vaccine side effects, yet people over 80 are the most vulnerable to COVID-19 and would theoretically stand to benefit from the vaccine most.

Coronavirus Vaccines Have Been Notoriously Prone to Failure

High risk of side effects is probably to be expected, considering a) the history of coronavirus vaccines in general, b) most of the COVID-19 vaccines under development are relying on mRNA technology that have never been used in vaccine production before now, and c) the vaccines are being fast-tracked, forgoing animal studies.

35-Year-Old Florida Roofer Struck by Lightning Listed as Coronavirus Fatality — The Gateway Pundit

A 35-year-old Florida roofer struck by lightning in late May was listed as a Coronavirus fatality.

An investigative report by Alachua Chronicle revealed several Covid-19 death certificates with multiple co-morbidities.

A 35-year-old male who was struck by lightning on May 28 and died from serious spinal cord and brain injuries on June 9 was listed as a Dade County death from Coronavirus:

“The decedent was working on the roof of a home in Middleburg on 5/28. It started to rain and the decedent and his coworkers stopped working. Bystanders in the neighborhood and the workers on the roof observed a flash of lighting and heard a loud explosion, and several workers were thrown off of the roof. Immediately following the lightning strike, a worker on the roof observed the decedent collapse, fall off of the roof, and land facedown on grass.”

“The decedent’s muscles were reported to be contracted and shaking and caused the decedent’s body to roll over onto his backside. It was also reported by the workers that the decedent’s eyeballs were rolled back into his skull. Bystanders in the neighborhood observed the decedent on the ground, called 911, and started CPR until EMS arrived on scene.”

When the decedent was taken to Orange Park Medical Center he was found to have spinal fractures with spinal transection, a skull base fracture and pulmonary contusions.

He was then transferred to UF Health Shands Hospital where he tested positive for Covid-19.

The list of the man’s injuries was extensive according to Alachua Chronicle:

In addition to acute hypoxic respiratory failure and neurogenic shock, he was found to have a subarachnoid hemorrhage, bilateral pulmonary contusions, C3 & C7 spinous process fractures, complete T4 spinal cord transection, a skull base fracture. Trauma surgery, neurosurgery, and neurocritical care continued to follow the decedent and the decedent’s condition did not improve. Examinations were consistent with severe hypoxic brain injury and his prognosis was poor. The decedent’s family elected to transition to full comfort measures on 6/9 and he was pronounced dead on 6/9.”

No wonder many Americans don’t believe the Coronavirus numbers being reported by the media!

According to the Palm Beach County investigation, only 27% of their fatalities listed Covid-19 as the only cause!

There is a MAJOR difference between dying FROM Covid-19 and dying WITH Covid-19 but the CDC and media are lumping both together to inflate the number of Covid deaths.

China Demands Churches Praise Communist Regime If They Want to Reopen — Faithwire

At the height of the coronavirus pandemic, churches within China’s government-approved network were forced to shut their doors. Now, if they want to reopen, they must first agree to praise President Xi Jinping and extol his communist regime.

According to Bitter Winter, a magazine covering religious liberty issues in China, the Religious Affairs Bureau of Zhengzhou released a 42-item list of prerequisites for churches seeking to reopen to congregants.

The list includes orders to “intensify patriotic education” and “study China’s religious policies.” Churches are also compelled to promote the so-called “four requirements” campaign that began in 2018 to advance the “sinicization” of religion, in which non-Chinese cultures assimilate to Chinese influence.

Bitter Winter defined the “four requirements” this way: “ritually raising the national flag, often while singing the national anthem; teaching beliefs about, and promoting, the Chinese constitution, laws, and regulations; preaching and promoting the ‘core socialist values’; and promoting ‘China’s excellent traditional culture.’”

“Instead of a normal sermon, the preacher talked about the patriotism of medical workers during the epidemic, and their sacrifice to the state,” a member of a Three-Self (or government-backed) church told Bitter Winter. “These things are important, but political things were discussed for half of the time. Many believers complained afterward.”

Churches, though, that fail to comply with the dozens of government-mandated requirements are now allowed to reopen.

One church in Henan was barred from holding services because communist officials didn’t approve the pastor’s sermon, even though it praised medical workers for their heroism at the height of the epidemic.

From Bitter Winter:

Congregations in the prefecture-level city of Luoyang were exhilarated even for the smallest glimpse of hope to gather again, despite strict provisions. A member of a local Three-Self church told Bitter Winter that she cried from excitement because she “had to stay from the church for six months.”

Despite many preparations, her church was not allowed to reopen because the Religious Affairs Bureau did not approve the preacher’s sermons about the heroes of the epidemic prevention, which he had to hand in ahead of time. When the preacher rewrote the sermons, fulfilling all the requirements, the reopening was still canceled. This time, the authorities claimed that it was because “the epidemic is severe in Beijing.”

The preacher, though, pointed out that a “nearby swimming pool already reopened in May.”

“Why is it so difficult for the church to reopen?” he asked.

One church deacon told the magazine: “None of the 11 places of worship in our area was approved for reopening. We were busy preparing to meet the requirements for reopening, but the government made things difficult for us in every respect.”

In addition to praising China, its one-party rule, and Xi’s handling of the coronavirus epidemic, ministers of government-backed churches have also been mandated to slander the United States. One pastor admitted he “had to preach as the state required” because, if he hadn’t, “the church would not have reopened.”

“The government said that churches must preach about national affairs if they want to reopen,” one church-goer from Sanmenxia said. “With Xi Jinping’s speeches as the main content, it’s better for churches not to reopen.”

Meanwhile, as Faithwire has reported at length, the Chinese government is continuing its assault on Christianity, tearing down crosses from churches and destroying worship centers around the country.

The country’s communist leadership is also committing what some have called genocide against its minority Muslim population, forcing them into concentration camps Xi’s regime has dubbed “re-education camps.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), though, thinks China is “a respectable nation among nations.” You can read more about that here and listen to my conversation about it with Faithwire Managing Editor Dan Andros here.

On the Road with Pence’s FAITH IN AMERICA Tour: 2020 Election Will Decide if ‘America Will Still Be America’ — Faithwire

 

By David Brody

TAMPA, Florida – Vice President Mike Pence is sending a strong message to pro-lifers: Wake up! Because the destiny of the Supreme Court lies in the 2020 election. In an exclusive interview with CBN News, Pence called Chief Justice John Roberts “a disappointment to conservatives” and called on Joe Biden to step up to the plate and debate President Trump.

A humid, August trip to Florida seemed the perfect place for Pence to turn up the heat and motivate the base. At one of his signature “Faith in America” campaign events, he spelled out the stakes in the upcoming election.

“The question is not whether our country will be Republican or Democrat or blue or red, but whether America will still be America,” he said.

In our time together on the road, the vice president was animated throughout, lowering the boom, especially with his thoughts on what a Joe Biden presidency could mean for the country.

“Joe Biden and the Democratic Party have been overtaken by the radical left,” Pence said. “He’s calling for a historic increase in funding to Planned Parenthood of America. He would appoint activist judges to our courts, who would literally trample on the progress that we’ve made on life and religious liberties.”

And speaking of the courts, the vice president made very clear that the Supreme Court will be of paramount importance in this election, especially because he sees a chief justice who can no longer be counted on to be a reliable conservative.

“Look, we have great respect for the institution of the Supreme Court of the United States. But Chief Justice John Roberts has been a disappointment to conservatives,” Pence told CBN News.

He cites multiple examples, from Roberts’s key 2012 decision to uphold Obamacare to his more recent decision to side with liberals to strike down a modest Louisiana pro-life law.

“I think it’s been a wake-up call for pro-life voters around the country who understand, in a very real sense, the destiny of the Supreme Court is on the ballot in 2020,” Pence said.

Biden: Blacks all think the same way | WND

After insisting that any black person who doesn’t vote Democratic isn’t black, Joe Biden has now made it clear he believes the African-American community lacks diversity of thought.

“What you all know, but most people don’t know, unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things,” Biden said in an interview with Yahoo News.

He had been asked whether or not he will “reengage” with Cuba and how he will address the issues that matter to the nation’s Latino community.

See Biden’s remarks to Yahoo News:

In May, Biden declared to a black interviewer “you ain’t black” if you don’t vote for him.

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” he said in an interview on the “The Breakfast Club,” a nationally syndicated radio show based in New York City.

The interviewer, Charlamagne Tha God, responded to Biden: “It don’t have nothing to do with Trump, it has to do with the fact — I want something for my community.”

Republican Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina, an African-American, noted at the time on Twitter that 1.3 million black Americans already have voted for Trump.

“This morning, Joe Biden told every single one of us we ‘ain’t black,” he wrote. “I’d say I’m surprised, but it’s sadly par for the course for Democrats to take the black community for granted and brow beat those that don’t agree.”

The comment comes shortly after the 17-minute mark:

Black Voices for Trump, an extension of the president’s reelection campaign, called Biden’s remark in May “racist and dehumanizing.”

Trump adviser Katrina Pierson said in a statement at the time: “White liberal elitists have continuously dictated which Black Americans are allowed to come to the table and have a voice. It is clear now more than ever, following these racist and dehumanizing remarks, that Joe Biden believes Black men and women are incapable of being independent or free thinking.”

Pierson said Biden “truly believes that he, a 77-year-old white man, should dictate how Black people should behave.”

While about 90% of black voters typically support the Democratic nominee in presidential elections, the Trump campaign has drawn the support of some prominent black personalities, particularly with economic policies that reduced black unemployment to the lowest levels in 50 years before the coronavirus pandemic.

Several polls have showed Trump with an approval rating of more than 30% among black voters.

McClatchy noted “young men of color” are a “potential problem for Democrats” in the 2020 election.

“Male African American and Latino voters — particularly those under the age of 35 — are showing a surprising openness to President Donald Trump’s re-election bid, according to interviews with leading Democratic and Republican strategists and a review of polling data,” the report said.

“Driven by a once-strong economy and a greater acceptance of the president’s behavior, their interest is significant enough to alarm Democrats that the overwhelming support they traditionally count on from this group could be diminished in November, with potentially serious consequences in a tight election.”

It continued: “Critically, many Democrats who have done research on this voter group say the concern runs deeper than young minorities simply not turning out in the upcoming election — an issue that plagued Hillary Clinton in 2016 — but casting their ballots for Trump.”

“Democrats need to take this seriously,” warned Michelle Mayorga, a New Mexico-based pollster who has conducted extensive focus groups with Latino voters.

Rudolph W. Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer, on Thursday said Black Lives Matter is a domestic terrorist group and that African Americans have suggested to him that they’re not being labeled as such “just because they’re Black.”

The former New York mayor said both Black Lives Matter and the anti-fascist group Antifa are “domestic terrorist groups — without any doubt.”

“You know who knows that best? African Americans,” Mr. Giuliani said on “Fox & Friends.” “I’ve actually had them tell me — why aren’t they classified as a terrorist group? Is it just because they’re Black, and nobody can say it?”

He said some of the people instrumental in the group were “big shots” in the Weather Underground.

Mr. Giuliani named Susan Rosenberg, who has sat on the board of Thousand Currents, a group that has done work for the Black Lives Matter Global Network Project.

Over 80% Of Black Americans Don’t Want To ‘Abolish Police’ | ZeroHedge News

While BLM would have one believe that cops are inherently evil and must be abolished, a new Gallup poll finds that’s most minorities in America don’t feel that way. Of those surveyed, 61% of Black Americans are just fine with current levels of police presence in their area, while 20% say they want more patrols.

Overall, 67% of all US adults prefer the status quo while 19% say they want police to spend more time in their area.

Which group wants the most reductions to policing in their area? Asians, at 28%, followed by Black Americans at 19%, Hispanics at 17% and White Americans at 12%. On average, 86% of American adults want the same or more level of policing in their area.

When it comes to how often police are seen in a neighborhood, Asians report the most at 47%, followed by Whites at 42%, Blacks at 41% and Hispanics at 37%.

According to the poll, “the slightly elevated frequency with which Black Americans see police in their neighborhood has limited impact on their preferences for changing the local police presence. About a third of Black Americans who say they often see the police in their neighborhood think the police should spend less time there (34%); however, the majority of adults in this group think they should spend the same amount of time (56%) or more time (10%).”

That said, while Black Americans are about as comfortable as the overall population with the amount of police presence in their area, less than 20% of Blacks feel ‘very confident’ that they would be treated with courtesy and respect by the police. 24% of Asians say the same, while 40% of Hispanic Americans and 56% of Whites are confident they would be treated well in an interaction with cops.

When factoring in those who are at least somewhat confident that the police would treat them well, a majority of Black Americans (61%) are generally confident, but this is still below the 85% seen nationally, including 91% of White Americans. -Gallup

Overall, of the small proportion of Black Americans who are “not at all confident” that the police wouldn’t treat them well, 59% of them want police to spend less time in their area – while the majority of Blacks in America, including those “not too confident” about receiving positive treatment, want cops to spend the same amount of time or more where they live.

Gallup also found:

Notably, simply having an interaction with the police in the past year has no bearing on Black Americans’ preference for local police presence in their area:

  • Seventy-nine percent of those who have had an interaction with the police in the past 12 months say they want the police to spend more or the same amount of time in their neighborhood; 21% favor less time.
  • Eighty-two percent of those who have not had an interaction want the same or greater police presence; 18% want less.

What does matter is the quality of the interaction:

  • Forty-five percent of Black Americans who report not being treated with courtesy or respect by the police within the past 12 months want less of a police presence in their neighborhood. Meanwhile, 55% want the same or more police presence.
  • By contrast, just 13% of those who did feel they were treated respectfully want the police to spend less time in their neighborhood; 87% want them there as much or more often.

In short, most Black Americans don’t want changes in police presence, though nearly 40% feel they’re less likely to have a positive encounter with cops than other races.

Government is Not God, and the Church IS Essential — David Fiorazo

Christian Pastors are threatened for holding church services while Bibles and American flags are burned in our streets; athletes who stand for the National Anthem at sporting events are now considered courageous while kneeling in protest is practically expected. Pro-life protesters are arrested outside an abortion clinic for writing “Black Pre-born Lives Matter” in chalk on a public sidewalk, but vandals and rioters are free to spray paint buildings and public property in cities across the country.

Double standards abound and our religious freedoms are in jeopardy. In case you haven’t noticed, America is at a tipping point. Moral decay, cultural decline, political division and protests, the Democrat media using the ‘Rona’ to stoke fear and panic, and threats to our very way of life.

There’s never been a time that we’ve needed God more – and many churches are still closed; others not operating at full capacity. Why? According to government and the secular culture, church is not a priority. But is that true?

If the church is not essential, what hope is there for people struggling with depression and anxiety or suffering as suicide rates skyrocket and call-ins to help lines are up 600 percent? Drugs and alcohol? In the last several months, a time more people have been faced with major life changes and their own mortality, many are feeling hopeless, looking for answers, and even open to the good news of Jesus Christ.

But churches have been severely handicapped by government. Was this necessary to ‘flatten the curve’? Was this right?

Some pastors are pushing back, particularly in California against Governor Gavin Newsom’s draconian orders. Thanks to Jack Hibbs, Shane Idleman, and others who are either gathering normally or are finding ways around the restrictions. Grace Community Church assembled last weekend with a full house in obedience to the Word of God, after which Pastor John MacArthur received a letter from Los Angeles county officials threatening fines and even possible arrest. We’re talking about fines of $1,000 a day if the church does not comply with Emporer Newsom’s order.

He responded by saying, “it has never been the prerogative of civil government to order, modify, forbid, or mandate worship,” so they plan on continuing to meet every Sunday. MacArthur appeared on Fox News and host Shannon Bream asked him about the seriousness of COVID-19. Part of his reply was in a state with 80 million people, close to 9,000 have died related to the virus, which is a 99.98% survival rate!

This is something I’ve also struggled with; the fact the Constitution doesn’t give government power to regulate church services. MacArthur added:

“We feel like we are the most essential reality in the world,” Look, Jesus is Lord … He is the head of our church. Governor Newsom is not the head of the church. [Los Angeles] Mayor [Eric] Garcetti is not the head of the church.”

God is faithful, and we need more church leaders to contend for the faith, equip the saints, and preach the truth without wavering. The Bible says we are to gather together and encourage one another. How do we do that by watching an on-line sermon? The writer of Hebrews states:

“and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, 25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25

Jesus is the Head of the church, all authority belongs to Him, and we don’t need the government’s permission to serve others and worship as He has commanded.

The real danger isn’t a virus or a physical health issue; the danger is spiritual, and America is on life support!

Even before the chaos and mayhem of this year, in the decades leading up to 2020 our culture had been declining spiritually, morally, and politically. At stake was our Christian foundation, true history, religious freedom, the 2nd Amendment, national debt, free speech, and more.

America has well over 300,000 churches, but few would deny the fact our Christian influence has decreased dramatically as the nation has become secularized. Biblical values are no longer being demonstrated and promoted and therefore, do not impact culture like they used to.

What has happened to the salt and light? Too many have conformed to this world and an entertaining, seductive culture.

Because the church has been so busy with life, preoccupied with other things and because most believers have been silent, we have been struggling as a nation. For Christians who seek to honor a holy God, shouldn’t we be living differently?

The world is imploding, time is running out, and the door through which people can be saved is closing. If God rebuked the early church for being lukewarm and leaving their first love, what would He say to us today?

In a message to Christians in the Book of Revelation, Jesus said:

“Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God. So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you.” Revelation 3:2-3

We know Jesus is returning but we don’t know when. That should sober up every one of us and repentance should be a priority. Judgement will begin with the house of God. This is such a pivotal time in our history! Where are the bold, voices of faith confronting culture, speaking truth and refuting the lies?

Recent Barna research shows an overwhelming majority of church-goers want their pastors to address the moral, social, and political issues people are dealing with in society, but the report also shows just 10 percent were willing to speak to “controversial” issues from the pulpit.

So, we have to do our part.

Christians must know the Word of God, be led by the Holy Spirit, and speak some clarity into our chaotic culture. People are searching for something to help them make sense of this world, of the difficult circumstances in their lives. Many of the things people have been putting their hopes and dreams in are now falling apart, and they’re starting to see how temporal this life and its pursuits are.

Regardless of whether or not the world understands how essential the church is to the health of a society and the world, we know better! Christians still have the best message of hope for depressed, desperate people. Jesus is not only essential, He is the only hope for sinners to have eternal life.

The country is divided over many things, including the concern about how to keep people physically healthy during this pandemic, and over decisions by power-grabbing governors and mayors to regulate businesses, entertainment, sporting events, and schools. But bans on churches, singing, caps on attendance, or limitations on religious gatherings are outside legitimate bounds of God-ordained authority for civic officials.

People need hope and places of refuge. The body of Christ needs freedom to minister and its members to be ministered to! The church needs to be the church, and that includes being free of government control and influence.

JAIL FAUCI: Massive International Study Shows Countries with Early HCQ Use Had 79% Lower Mortality Rate — THIS IS HUGE! We Are Talking Over 100,000 American Lives! — The Gateway Pundit

 

THIS IS HUGE!
PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO ALL OF YOUR LOVED ONES!

The latest international testing of hydroxychloroquine treatment of coronavirus shows countries that had early use of the drug had a 79% lower mortality rate than countries that banned the use of the safe malaria drug.

This means that Dr. Fauci, Dr. Birx, the CDC, the liberal fake news media and the tech giants have been pushing a lie that has had deadly consequences!

America has lost (reportedly) over 150,000 lives.

And that could have been lowered by nearly 80% if HCQ use would have been promoted in the US!

We are talking over 100,000 American lives could have been saved!

On Wednesday night Dr. Ramin Osoui went on with Laura Ingraham to discuss this study that involves the populations of 2 billion people.

Dr. Ramin Oskoui says there needs to be consequences for such glaring and deadly errors that cost tens of thousands of lives.

 

Dr. Oskoui: It’s really devastating to Dr. Fauci, Dr. Hahn, Dr. Redfield and their performance.  I think not only should they be embarrassed but I think they really need to be held to account…  Physicians have a fiduciary responsibility to act in the best interests of their patients.

Please take the time to listen to this.
It could save your life!

And here is the website that has compiled all of this international data.

This is a gigantic story!
Over 100,000 deaths could have been prevented!
This is mass murder.

August 6 Life-Changing Moments With God

 

Whom the Lord loves He corrects.

I confess, Lord God, that You, even You, are He, and there is no God besides You; You kill and You make alive; You wound and You heal; nor is there any who can deliver from Your hand. The thoughts that You think toward me, Lord God, are thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give me a future and a hope. And You say, “My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways.”

You will allure me, will bring me into the wilderness, and speak comfort to me. As a man chastens his son, so You, Lord God, chasten me. Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. I humble myself under Your mighty hand, Lord God, that You may exalt me in due time.

I know, O Lord, that Your judgments are right, and that in faithfulness You have afflicted me.

Heavenly Father, You love me enough to chasten me.

May I humble myself under Your chastening hand,

confident of Your love,

and anticipating the fulfillment

of the good plans You have for me.

August 6 Thoughts for the quiet hour

 

Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.… Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might

Col. 3:2; Eccles. 9:10

If we are to live separate from the world, how, since men only do well what they do with a will, are we, with affections fixed on things above, to perform aright the secular, ordinary duties of life? If our hearts are engrossed with heavenly things, how are we to obey this other and equally divine commandment, “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might?”

The two are perfectly consistent. Man standing between the celestial and terrestrial worlds is related to both; and resembling neither a flower, which, springing from the dust and returning to it, belongs altogether to the earth, nor a star which, shining far remote from its lower sphere, belongs altogether to the heavens, our hearts may be fitly likened to the rainbow that, rising into heaven but resting on earth, is connected both with the clods of the valley and the clouds of the sky.
