The Episcopal church(?) is a false witness Their religion is clearly no longer Christian and certainly not Biblical.
The poisonous worldly ideology of Liberalism has obviously taken over the heart and mind of the Episcopalians.
Episcopalians are now a satanic group who do not have saving faith or the capacity to receive the truth.
The Episcopal church is described as ...... "Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness." Eph 4:18.
Sodom and Gomorrah proved that this satanic state of mind can and does take over many reprobates. The Anglican and Episcopalian diabolic rabble demonstrates this fact today.
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." = The Episcopalians have lost this battle.
"It is striking how frightened so many people are by this virus. It has shaken the world, perhaps especially the economically developed nations of the world, where people feel immune and secure against so many dangers. But now they are confronted by a force that their wealth and medical advances cannot save them from; there is no vaccine at present, nor is there likely to be any time soon. This virus is no respecter of persons. It cannot be contained. The world is at its mercy. And yet the vast majority of people will not contract this disease, and the majority of those who do will not die from it. How much more terrified should people be of the judgment of God when it sweeps over them suddenly, unstoppably, affecting every person who has ever lived, no matter where in the world they are? This pandemic, and every pandemic, is a small, pale shadow of the ultimate judgment of God." https://banneroftruth.org/uk/resources/articles/2020/a-christian-response-to-the-corona-virus/
As R. C. Sproul used to say, there cannot be a single maverick molecule anywhere in the universe that is outside of God‚Äôs sovereignty.
WCF: 3/1. God from all eternity did, by the most wise and holy counsel of his own will, freely and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass;a yet so as thereby neither is God the author of sin,b nor is violence offered to the will of the creatures, nor is the liberty or contingency of second causes taken away, but rather established.c"
""The Catholic Church on Friday granted forgiveness -- under certain conditions -- for the sins of the faithful struck by the novel coronavirus.""
Wow! "GRANTED" forgiveness - such power in a mere mortal? To 'grant' forgiveness is a divine prerogative - But the Vatican usurps this authority by popish presumption. Will God grant the Vatican forgiveness for this sin. NO!
Quote:- "First notice, that he has done this certainly. The apostle does not say he hopes so, but he says, "God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you." Eph 4:32. Are you in the number of the forgiven, my dear hearer? Hast thou believed in the Lord Jesus Christ? Then, as sure as you have believed, God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you. Have you put your trust in the atoning sacrifice? Then God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you. You have not begun to be a Christian, I hope, with the idea that one day, at some future period, you may obtain forgiveness. No. "God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you." Pardon is not a prize to be run for, but a blessing received at the first step of the race." (C H Spurgeon).
""Tony Spell, pastor of Life Tabernacle Church in Baton Rouge, said no "dictator law" could keep people from worshipping God""
I notice one of this churches tenets is that they don't believe in the Trinity. They state that the "spirit" is ..... Quote:- "The Holy Ghost is not a third person in the Godhead, but rather the Spirit of God (the Creator), the Spirit of the resurrected Christ."
Thus they appear to 'demote' the Holy Spirit from Trinity and Godhead!! Their version is that the Holy Spirit is NOT the third PERSON. ===
C H Spurgeon wrote:- "We are so accustomed to talk about the influence of the Holy Spirit and his sacred operations and graces, that we are apt to forget that the Holy Spirit is truly and actually a person‚ÄĒthat he is an actual life‚ÄĒan existence; or, as we Trinitarians usually say, one person in the essence of the Godhead. But I am afraid that, though we don‚Äôt know it, we have acquired the habit of regarding the Holy Spirit as an divine emanation flowing from the Father and the Son, but not as being actually a person himself."
CHS Goes on to say: "The second proof that the Holy Spirit is a real person is the fact that the Holy Spirit has actually made different appearances on the earth." (The Personality of the Holy Spirit)
The nations rise up against God His Word and His servants.
And now a pandemic is added to the mix!!
"It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart. 3 Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better. 4 The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth." Eccl 7:2-/
v8 Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit."
v10 Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not inquire wisely concerning this."
Ban all abortions as you would ban any sordid and demonic act.
Your life began at conception as all lives do. Abortion is an act of murder the taking of an innocent life.
God will judge and punish the evildoer.
"Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time." Rev 12:12.
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not."
"This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all: yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead." Eccl 9:3
Mark 5:36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe."
Rom 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."
"Prayer is an art which only the Spirit can teach us. He is the giver of all prayer. No man can progress in grace if he forsakes prayer. He who knows how to overcome with God in prayer has heaven and earth at his disposal.
Pray for prayer- pray till you can pray. If you want that splendid power in prayer, you must remain in loving, abiding union with the Lord Jesus Christ.
I would rather teach one man to pray than ten men to preach. But if one neglects his closet, then all evil comes of it. I believe that God hears your prayers because there is a secret work of the Spirit going on within you teaching you to pray. True prayer is an approach of the soul by the Spirit of God to the throne of God.
Prayer is the slender nerve that moveth the muscle of Omnipotence.
I know of no better thermometer to your spiritual temperature than this, the measure of the intensity of your prayer." CHS =====
‚ÄúPraying and sinning will never live together in the same heart. Prayer will consume sin, or sin will choke prayer.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúFaith is to the soul what life is to the body. Prayer is to faith what breath is to life. How a man can live and not breathe is past my comprehension, and how a man can believe and not pray is past my comprehension too.‚ÄĚ ‚Äē J C Ryle
The sodomites are targeting the wrong source. It's GOD they need to be disputing this with.
2Peter 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; 7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds) 9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:"
John 17:1 Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. 6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. 8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. 9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. 10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them." Amen. Amen.

Amazing what a tiny little virus can do to dynamic and powerful mankind!! Even to economics?
Atheists, humanists and Liberalists take note.
2Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust."
