For our persecuted Chinese brothers in Christ.....
1Peter 4:1 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; 2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
v12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. 14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified."
v16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf."
19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator."
""refused to join the government-controlled Three-Self Patriotic Movement and is thus considered illegal by the Chinese Communist Party.""
It is amazing how the communists are so fearful of Christianity. But it is Satan's method of closing down churches.
John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you."
Matt 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved."
Matt 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake."
""Representing Ofsted, Sir James Eadie QC said inspectors had concluded Cornerstone's recruitment needed action "because they were unlawful in terms of discrimination law".""
OFSTED is morally corrupt.
The Liberalist sodomite pandemic affects bureaucracy.
GOD states:- Jude :7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. The Lord rebuke thee.
10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. 11 Woe unto them!"
Has the lockdown achieved anything? What was it supposed to achieve in the first place? The virus continues to spread. A cure? Obviously not. A precaution? More likely. The politicians were trying to protect and save lives. The politicians were advised by the medical and science department.
Doctors previously when confronted with patients with colds and flu told them to go home stay in doors drink plenty fluid and wait till the symptoms go away.
This in effect is the same as lockdown only for a shorter period. However this remedy has been given to people who did not show symptoms. Problem!
One detail which everybody has been talking about in corona is that it is new and we don't yet know how to deal with it. Vaccine is months away.
Practical reality tells us that we have to go back to work and start the economy rolling again. BEFORE vaccine arrives.
There is no alternative.
If lockdown is lifted and the cases and deaths numbers go up again we still have to reopen education and industry.
So what is the solution? 1. Continue lockdown and destroy economy? 2. Lift lockdown and test the water? 3. Lift lockdown and wear protection? 4. Deal with the question: "Does the lockdown actually achieve anything besides economic decline? ......
If Satan is to control man with deception and the dreaded Liberalim then he puts the necessary team in place to achieve his evil aims. Putting Liberalists anywhere in society has one goal which is to spread corruption and deception. Thus control the sinners.
Truth is misconstrued by changing its argument and twisting it's true meaning. This is what Liberalism does with the Bible.
Thus Liberalist churches don't teach the Bible - they teach man's sinful interpretation of the truth - A pseudo version of truth.
""According to the data, roughly 66 percent of hospitalized coronavirus patients within the state were admitted from the safety of their own homes""
So self isolating did not work? How then does the virus work? If it can pass to those who are staying away from contact with other people then it must be floating around anywhere and everywhere. The virus would have to be capable of travelling (with purpose) from a previous source to search out a new victim - objective?
This little microbe is even smarter than we thought!!
""When government schools start up again in Washington State, so-called Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) will be even more ubiquitous than before""
"more ubiquitous" ???
In a fallen world this is impossible. Satan and sin is ubiquitous throughout the world.
What Washington State is actually saying is that they are going to increase the accessibility of evil to dominate the moral corruption of future generations. If these people actually had moral standards they would never agree to this. The question then is WHY?? Are they doing this today?
How can ANY decent adult choose to corrupt the minds of their children in their community?
What has changed in this generation?
1. Satan has increased power? 2. People have less control over sin? 3. God has allowed a new development to 'prove' His servants? 4. The end times are closer. Viz:- "21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened." Matt:24.
Jim Lincoln wrote: I doubt that, Mike. Churchill's domestic behavior was much more better than Boris. I don't think anybody knows how many children boris's actually had and with who. Also, while Boris is more literate than some world leaders, he is still not at the same standard as Churchill.
Totally different generations. Churchillâ€™s generation held to traditional Christian morals.
Borisâ€™s generations have rejected morals, Christianity and authority.
Liberalism now rules the roost in the modern generation which means anarchy and ignorance rules their hearts.
Modernism and so called post-modernism illustrates this ignorance and its effect on authority and leadership. Weakness and decline of civilisation is ongoing. From the top down.
â€śGod said to Adam that if he disobeyed he would die. What is the meaning of that death? Well, it includes physical death; there is no question about that. But, alas, it also includes far more than physical death. It includes spiritual death; it includes the death of the soul unto things that are good; it includes the death of the soul unto God. The dreadful penalty of that sin of Adam was that Adam and his descendants became dead in trespasses and sins. As a just penalty of Adam's sin, God withdrew his favor, and the souls of all mankind became spiritually dead. The soul that is spiritually dead, the soul that is corrupt, is guilty not only because of Adam's guilt but also because of its own sin. It deserves eternal punishment. (J. Gresham Machen.)
"What actually does happen, God intended should happen. Although his purposes or intentions cannot fail, He uses no influence to secure their accomplishment, which is incompatible with the perfect liberty and entire responsibility of rational creatures. As God is infinite in power and wisdom, He can control all events, and therefore the course of events must be in accordance with his will, because He can mould or direct that course at pleasure. It is, therefore, evident, first, that events must be the interpretation of his purposes, i.e., of what He intends shall happen; and secondly, that no objection can bear against the purpose or decrees of God, which does not bear equally against his providence. If it be right that God should permit an event to happen, it must be right that He should purpose to permit it, i.e., that He should decree its occurrence." (Charles Hodge: The Plan of Salvation)
""The Confucius Institute serves as the international propaganda arm of the CCP. The group deploys Chinese teachers to push the regimeâ€™s narratives, and chapters have established presences on roughly 90 American college campuses.""
So this is where Bernie was taught Marxist commie theory. Wonder how many other Democrats came through this education?
