    And we wonder why! Didn't the Bible say that people hearts will fail them due to fear! Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. Luke 21:26 Those who claim to love THE MOST have being follow a man that still give out mix messages. People are dying and many of the Governors being partisan have met together and need medical help a few Governors are listen to the man in the White House and people are fearful, sick and dying daily. Sad! A young man lick the toilet and now he has the Coronavirus. More will happen because we keep denying the power of YAHWEH! TIME IS RUNNING OUT! We are not following the principles outlined in the Bible and we like Nebuchadnezzar will see the handiwork of YAHWEH and the beginning of sorrow due to a dying sinful planet! HE Cried also in mine ears with A LOUD VOICE, saying, Cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man with his destroying weapon in his hand. And, behold, six men came from the way of the Higher Gate, which lieth toward the North, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer's inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brazen altar. And the splendor of ELOHIYM of IsraEL was gone up from the cherub, whereupon HE was, to the threshold of the house. And HE called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer's inkhorn by his side; And YAHWEH said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. And to the others HE Said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at MY Sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house. Eze 9:1-6 It is praying Time!

  4. A Few Thoughts On Freedom Of Religious Expression Canada has a rocky history when it comes to religion, in general, and to anti-semitism/hate more specifically. In the 1920s, the KKK in Canada was apparently very strongly supported by various Canadian Protestants; as the rhetoric of the Canadian version of the KKK resonated very well with The Orange Order, an anti-semite organization which I am sure would be banned today. Or, at least, very unwelcome. It was especially in Saskatchewan that Canadian KKK were sprung from; but in Canada they were always much different that the US counter-part. Here in Canada, it was mostly anti-Catholic, and anti-immigrant. So a bit of similarity, but also some differences. It would appear the the KKK in Saskatchewan were most active in the 1930s. I think they were even behind a bill then which was to prohibit religious symbols and garb. And very obviously aimed at Roman Catholic crucifixes, and nuns habits. But has this kind of sentiment really gone away with all of modernity's classic anti-hate legislation? Apparently, Quebec seems quite comfortable with similar anti-religious legislation, apparently aimed at Muslims, in particular. "the CAQ government tabled Bill 21 on March 28, 2019, entitled "An Act respecting the laicity of the State". The bill, since made law, bans public workers in positions of "authority" from wearing religious symbols, specifically while they are on duty. According to the text of the bill, the laicity of the state is defined by a neutral religious stance, keeping state and religious affairs apart, as well as promoting equality and freedom of conscience and religion among citizens" SOURCE And so it can be seen throughout Canadian history how the state and various religious have always been on a collision course. Such brinkmanship has never really gone away. Canadian History does reflect a wide variety of responses to any public villification of any religion. Even the weird ones. I once showed an Amazing Facts video to a New Age individual, and a few days later when I asked: "what did you think?" the answer I got was just one word: "divisive." The Canadian Conundrum is that "freedom of religion" is virtually guaranteed in The Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms. It is often seen that the courts are having ongoing difficulties in recognizing a tangible tort of "group libel" until or unless it can be shown that a specific, single individual is being singled out; and there is an actual "damage" to said individual that can be proven. Canadian law recognizes such individuals as being eligible for "action at law" to specified damages as a result of said libellous expression. Our 1970 Criminal Code prohibited both "blasphemous libel" and "seditious libel" and basically making it a criminal offence to "spread false news" that could potentially, or actually did cause, a specific "mischief to the public interest." This part of The Charted was adopted into legislation in 1982. Plus, in Canada, criminal law is usually carried out by the state; whereas, criminal libel can actually be carried out by a private, individual citizen. So, here is the question. What is the last evangelistic crusade you attended? Would said message of that crusade pass the Canadian law test? Could The Pope have a potential "action at law" as a potential response to "false news" or hate-mongering "evangelism?" He seems to be saying in recent headlines that "those protestants" are sheep-stealing" and I am sure that said "sheep-stealing" cuts into the "donations" that he would have raked in. Is that an "actionable" damage? Is there a tort there somewhere in the wood work? If you are from another country, not Canada, you can still ask the same questions. For Canadian legislation on this seems closely tied to international law on this point. Perhaps, the following counsel is more up to date than next week's news?

    5 Things You Didn't Know About Dwight Eisenhower_2 On this day in 1969, Dwight D. Eisenhower, the 34th president of the United States and one of the most highly regarded American generals of World War II,, died in Washington, D.C., at the age of 78. Here are 5 interesting facts you didn’t know about President Dwight Eisenhower... “Ike” Was the Nickname for the Entire Family If someone called another family member in the Eisenhower family, it must have been confusing because all of them were nicknamed "Ike." It was the name used for all seven of the boys in the Eisenhower family, with Edgar being called “Big Ike” and Dwight called “Little Ike.” By the time World War II rolled around, the future president was the only Eisenhower sibling who retained the name “Ike.” Camp David is Named After His Grandson Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry Truman originally called the Maryland presidential retreat, “Shangri-La” after the fictional Himalayan paradise. Eisenhower, however, wanted a less formal moniker so he renamed it in 1953 in honor of his 5-year-old grandson, David. “Shangri-La was just a little fancy for a Kansas farm boy,” he wrote in a 1953. Both the Republican and Democratic Parties Wanted Him Eisenhower became popular and famous during World War II as the Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces, and when the war was over, both major political parties wanted to claim him as their own. At first, Eisenhower refused, but his name was submitted by Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. in the Republican New Hampshire primary without Eisenhower’s knowledge or consent. When he ended up winning the primary, he decided to continue to run for president, and the rest is history. He served two terms as president. He Was The First President to Ride in a Helicopter At Eisenhower’s suggestion, the Secret Service approved of the use of helicopters as a more efficient and safer means of travel than limousines for short trips to and from the White House. On July 12, 1957, Eisenhower became the first president to employ the new aviation technology when he rode in a two-passenger Bell H-13J helicopter to Camp David as part of a test of White House evacuation procedures. His Hobby Was Painting Even rugged men such as Eisenhower need some downtime and relaxation, and the former president found it in art. While Eisenhower was the president at Columbia University, he received a gift of a paint kit from Thomas E. Stephens, the artist who painted portraits of Eisenhower and his wife. Eisenhower produced more than 250 works of art during his lifetime but was more than a little modest about his talent.

    And its not an easy thing for people in our situation where someone in the house is a primary caregiver with a sick loved one who needs constant care. Caregivers for respite simply isnt happening, but we gladly take all precautions recommended by authorities. Its just something that has to be done. People need to wake up and smarten up. Regardless of conspiracy theories one may believe in; nothing that jeopardizes other people's health or their life is acceptable. There have been people arrested and jailed for knowingly giving AIDS or STDs to people. I wouldnt be surprised to see it happen with C19.

    COVID-19

    Well I can see by such things as this; they will have to do something about it. There are a number of reports from here, and other places where the social distancing thing is seen widely as preventing any major problems, and indeed, lessening the problem in areas where C19 has already hit. I didnt even let my own son within 10 feet of me when he came to pick up groceries I had stored away for him. he just came back from a remote location for his work and I knew two weeks ago he would have a hard time getting anything substantial from the stores when he got back. So I got some supplies for him, including hand sanitizer etc. I left it on the back porch for him and said I love you out the window. NO flu bugs in our house.

    The struggle is real! Seems New Yorkers are fleeing their city and people where they are going are getting uneasy. Rhode Islanders are stopping New Yorkers at the border. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-03-27/rhode-island-police-to-hunt-down-new-yorkers-seeking-refuge People in Apalachia are becoming concerned about the people flooding in. West Virginia was one of the last states to have an active case of Covid. People in Appalachia will be at increased risk of severe illness and death from Covid. Many apparently healthy looking individuals are actually black lungers. And the proportion of people not looking healthy seems to be far higher than the US population in general. https://www.100daysinappalachia.com/2020/03/people-are-fleeing-to-appalachia-to-escape-covid-19-that-needs-to-stop/ Donald J.

Donald Trump posted the above on FaceBook today. Comments from readers say as far as N. Dakota/Minnesota border are seeing New York license plates around their summer homes. Will be worth watching to see how this all plays out. Many have reported that these New York escapees are not following isolation and are just mingling with the population, and by reasonable thinking, are spreading the disease.

    Days of Praise

    March 28, 2020 Mindful of the Words “That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour.” (2 Peter 3:2) There has long been a tendency for certain Bible teachers to water down the doctrine of verbal inspiration by arguing that it is the “thoughts” of Scripture that count—not the precise words. They forget that the transmission of specific thoughts requires precise words. Ambiguous language is bound to produce fuzzy thinking and uncertain response. Thus the apostle Peter, in his last chapter, urged his followers to heed the words written by the Old Testament prophets. And Paul—in his final epistle—stressed that “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God” (2 Timothy 3:16). That is, all the writings are “God-breathed.” The “Scripture,” of course, means the writings, the actual words written down—they are “God-inspired,” not just the concepts. Similarly John, in his last chapter, warned of the grave danger incurred by anyone who would either “add to” or “take away from,” not just the ideas, but “the words of the book of this prophecy” (Revelation 22:18-19). Actually, “he which testifieth these things” was not just John but the glorified Jesus Himself (see Revelation 22:16, 20). In fact, Jesus frequently quoted passages from the Old Testament, sometimes basing His entire thrust on a single word (e.g., John 10:34, 37; arguing on the basis of the word “gods” in Psalm 82:6). In that connection, He stressed that “the scripture cannot be broken” (John 10:35), referring to the actual words written by Moses and the prophets. Near the end of His earthly ministry, He made a startling promise: “Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away” (Mark 13:31). Thus the actual words of the Bible have come ultimately from God, and we do well to learn them and make them a part of our lives. HMM

    Trivia Quiz?

    Answer: Uno is a classic card game where players take turns matching a card in their hand with the current card shown on top of the deck either by color or number. The object of the game is to be the first player to score 500 points, by being the first to shed of all of one's own cards and scoring points for the cards still held by the other players. According to the official rules, a player who plays their next-to-last-card must call "Uno" as a warning to the other players. If a player does not call "Uno" and is caught before the next player takes a turn, they must draw two cards as a penalty.

    Answer: On this day in 1953, medical researcher Dr. Jonas Salk announced on a national radio that he successfully tested a vaccine against the virus that causes the crippling disease of polio. Polio, a disease that has affected humanity throughout recorded history, attacks the nervous system and can cause varying degrees of paralysis. There is still no cure for polio once it has been contracted, but the use of vaccines has virtually eliminated polio in the United States. Globally, there are now around 250,000 cases each year, mostly in developing countries.
