Who Knows Who Else

Smallpox. It was a deadly disease. But the world did not shut down for it. 
It was a long-standing disease. But the world did not shut down for it. 

The origin of smallpox is unknown;[13] however, the earliest evidence of the disease dates to the 3rd century BCE in Egyptian mummies.[13] The disease historically occurred in outbreaks.[10] In 18th-century Europe, it is estimated that 400,000 people died from the disease per year, and that one-third of all cases of blindness were due to smallpox.[10][14] Smallpox is estimated to have killed up to 300 million people in the 20th century[15][16] and around 500 million people in the last 100 years of its existence,[17] as well as six monarchs.[10][14]As recently as 1967, 15 million cases occurred a year.[10]

A child with smallpox in Bangladesh in 1973.

The bumps filled with thick fluid and a depression or dimple in the center are characteristic.

A horrid picture isn’t it?! 
Smallpox was horrible for anyone, especially children.
More children died than adults. Thirty (30%) percent of the people who contracted smallpox died.  That’s a lot.  Even so, that is a 70% survival rate, but some had residual blindness. 

Horrible does not really describe it, does it?
Use the link and read more if you can stomach it – horrible does not even begin to describe it! 

So, Science gave us a VACCINE. One dose and no smallpox – ever.  


The facts are different with Covid 19. 

If a child gets it all – very few – for teens and young adults, the recovery rate is 99.997%. Presently, no residual effects. 
And according to the CDC, 70 years and older, your recovery rate is 94.6%.  Source
And with these horrible death rates the WHO and who knows who else, set out to give us a vaccine!

But alas this ‘vaccine’ is a two-dose and must be renewed annually and the recipient is still not assured that he or she will not get Covid, however, if you do, it might not be as bad.
Actually, there are NO guarantees with this Covid ‘vaccine’.

The risks are still unknown and I am told when one is injected with this ‘vaccine’ a waiver must be signed, resulting in, NO ONE is responsible for any ill effects.
In summary, NO ONE can be legally held responsible, be the effects minor or even result in death.

What’s wrong with this picture?

Please do not let the blindness of this world prevent you from seeing.

Additional Reading. 

Lions

We are reading 1 Peter 1:13 and following today. 

13 Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; 15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.” source

Going back to verse 12 we can know the reason for the, therefore.  Verse 12 reminds us Holy Spirit has come and because He is here with us we can do this.
We can gird up the loins of our minds.
We can be sober and we can REST our hope in Jesus Christ who has been revealed to us and will yet be further revealed to us. We can be holy in our conduct. 
We do want that, don’t we?

Gird. I like the definition I found for this word: gird.

To prepare (oneself) for action

It is with our minds yielded to Holy Spirit that we are prepared for action. 
And there are plenty of actions to be taken in this present season. Right?

A silly observation and I’ll end this for today.
Loins. 
Swap the o and i  in loins and we get LIONS.
If we gird up the loins of our minds, will we become more like the LION of Judah? 

Spring Forward

Luke 14:25  (NKJV)
25 Now great multitudes went with Him. And He turned and said to themsource

This verse is speaking of Yeshua, of course.
Multitudes followed Him to hear Him preach. 

After Jesus’ resurrection, ascension, and Holy Spirit had come the Disciples preached.

Acts 2:41 (AMP) 
41 So then, those who accepted his message were baptized; and on that day about 3,000 souls were added [to the body of believers]. source

Acts 2:46-47 (NKJV) 
46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved. source

Acts 4:4  (AMP) But many of those who heard the message [of salvation] believed [in Jesus and accepted Him as the Christ]. And the number of the men came to be about 5,000.  source

Spring forward from Century 1 to now the 21st Century – what happened? 
Multitudes followed Yeshua to hear what He would say.
Thousands upon thousands, even 3,000 in a day heard Peter preach and believed The Gospel. They got SAVED.

Where are the multitudes in the 21st Century being CHANGED by The GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST
What happened? 

Will you pray?
Will you pray according to Luke 10:2?

Luke 10:2  (AMP) 
He was saying to them, “The harvest is abundant [for there are many who need to hear the good news about salvation], but the workers [those available to proclaim the message of salvation] are few. Therefore, [prayerfully] ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest. source

 
21st century
The 21st century is the current century in the Anno Domini era or Common Era, in accordance with the Gregorian calendar. It began on January 1, 2001, and will end on December 31, 2100. The 21st century is the first century of the 3rd millennium. Wikipedia
 
How many millenniums will we have? 

Eating

Just a quick word. It seems important. 

2 Timothy 2:15 and 1 Peter 2:2
Both are familiar.

2 Timothy 2:15  (NKJV) 
15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. source

It takes work to eat. You have to be intentional.  Good nutrition does not come without effort. 
Planning, prepping, preparing, and actually eating. 

1 Peter 2:2  (NKJV) 
as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, source

Newborns. Have you noticed Moms don’t have to beg healthy newborns to take milk?
So, based on 1 Peter 2:2 why do Christians not desire the Word of GOD as intently as babies desire milk?

That’s it. I promised quick. 

The Winter of 2021

Psalm 37

Psalm 37 tells us to Fret Not because of Evil Doers. 
Does that give us a license to care not that evil is operating in our world?
Does Psalm 37:1 mean that we should give the doers of evil no thought?
And if not what thoughts do we give?

1 Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. source

Would you agree that in this Land there is an abundance of Doers of Evil?  
I for sure would. (And many of them are congregating on a Hill.)

Yet I wonder if I have been guilty of being envious of them?
Envious that they go on year after year in many cases and reap no visible signs of justice. 
But I don’t know that, do I? 
And what business is it of mine anyway?
What is my business where the evildoer is concerned?
Especially the evildoer that makes laws that bear on my life or the lives of others. 
Should not I be concerned about such?

What is our duty before GOD when we see what we are seeing here in the Winter of 2021?
Fret not for sure.
I won’t ask how to fret not because the rest of Psalm 37 explains in grand detail how. 

Even so, I still have the question, beyond not fretting:
What can the average Mary and James do about corruption? 
What should the average Mary and James do when they encounter an instrument of evil?

As you may have noticed, I have more questions than answers today.
Albeit, I do have this to offer: 

2 Corinthians 10:
For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man. 
The weapons of our warfare are not physical [
weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.
We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [
true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ,
being ready to punish every act of disobedience, when your own obedience [as a church] is complete.  source
