      Psalms 119:1-8                                         Sep. 5 - Oct. 2, 2019
      1 ALEPH. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
      2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
      3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
      4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.
      5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
      6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
      7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
      8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
      The following verse stood out to me...
      5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
      At first glance it seemed to me this person’s soul is poured out with intense desire to have God’s direction in keeping His Word.
      I made a small wood fire in our backyard for my granddaughter, Julia, since she would be staying overnight with us. My wife and Julia stayed outside at the fire for about half an hour. Then, I found myself alone to watch the fire die out on a particularly lovely evening. So I took my verse from above and began to repeat it for memorization. As I repeated the verse, I tried to contemplate the words and apply them to what I was seeing around me. 
      The moon and stars were out now peering through the scattered clouds above.
      [Genesis 1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. Genesis 1:17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, Genesis 1:18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.]
      Thought 1         
      The moon has stayed his course since the day God created him, also the stars, obeying the statutes directed by God from the first day they were created. Can you imagine God’s direction to the Moon and stars, “moon you will have a path through the sky above the earth, stars you will occupy the firmament above the moon and be clearly visible in the cloudless night sky.”
      Then, the trees, grass, even the air we breathe obey the statues God gave them from the beginning. None of these creations have souls, none have hearts, none have intelligence, but they all observe God’s statutes, His instructions for their limited time on earth.
      Thought 2
      What if we were like the moon, stars, trees, grass, or the other creations which have no soul? We would be directed to keep God’s statutes without choosing to keep them. This is not the image of God, there would be no dominion over other creatures, or over the earth. We would not be capable of experiencing the joy and peace of learning the love of God
      Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
      Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
      Thought 3 (October 2, 2019)
      Is the psalmist pleading God to force God’s statutes to become the man’s ways? No, he is speaking of his own failure in keeping God’s statutes and his desire to keep them, very much like Paul in Romans 7:14-25.
      God doesn’t work through force to turn men from their ways that they would desire His statutes or desire God Himself. Men must reject (repent) put aside his own ways and voluntarily seek God and His statutes.

Just imagine how bad the Covid testing is here in the states if it's this bad in the UK! More proof that this is becoming a farce of unimaginable magnitude! Not the virus, but the testing itself...and the vaccine as well!

SUMNER COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — The head doctor at Sumner Regional Medical Center said the delta variant of COVID-19 “has burned through us with a ferocity that’s hard to describe,” adding “there are no beds.”

About 99.9999% of fully vaccinated Americans have not had a deadly COVID-19.

Tennessee: More COVID-19 hospitalizations in August than any other month of pandemic

There have been 1,023 new hospitalizations in Tennessee in the first 15 days of August, more than any other full month of the pandemic. The next worst month for COVID-19 hospitalizations in the state was November, when new hospitalizations surpassed 900.

Really? UT doing well. Hmm.

UTMC said non-essential procedures are being delayed again on a case-by-case basis starting Monday as COVID-19 hospitalizations surge.

This comes as COVID-19 hospitalizations continue to grow rapidly to the point East Tennessee regional hospitals reported they running low on ICU bed space.

On Wednesday, the Knox County Health Department said there were only five ICU beds available in all of East Tennessee's 19 regional hospitals. While ICUs typically stay busy during the summer months, the rapid growth in COVID-19 cases has led to a rapid rise in new hospitalizations -- almost entirely in unvaccinated people according to local and state health officials.

Learn to READ and COMPREHEND, BB...I stated MIDDLE TENNESSEE...Get with the program! UT Medical Center is in Knoxville...nowhere NEAR Middle Tennessee. Nowhere did I state that UT was doing well. So, again, I say to open your eyes and learn how to read and comprehend. Seems that's one thing you haven't learned how to do yet.

Channel 10 News..NBC...Nazi Broadcasting Corporation...still nothing conservative, BB...you wouldn't know a conservative site if it bit you on the butt!

African American's are the ones who are disproportionate in their getting the vaccine...They want to try and make this an issue that will go along with the voter ID laws, stating that it's discriminatory, but have to flip flop over and over and over....UGH!

So, the doctors admit my mother's blood clots probably came from the vaccine but want her to take a third booster anyway.

Many doctors no longer care for what's best for the patient only hawking an experimental vaccine for the stakeholders. 

Gates did say he could reduce the world's population 15% with his vaccine.

Mr. Gates has advocated for elminating a percentage of the worlds population for the last thirty years. I couldn't believe what I was hearing, but he believed that this was one way to stop "Global Warming" and over farming. I believe that is one reason he started buying up a lot of the farm land. This manufactured Wuhan Flu has been one of his goals for years, and I'm sure that he's got at least one of two other virus' in store for us. He also spoke of having several pandemics going at once a couple of years back that could possibly eliminate up to 25% of the people who weren't part of the "fittest."

I believe God has built into mankind population control measures that doesn't require mankind itself killing or sterilizing people. God must have forseen this if he commanded mankind to be fruitful, multiple and replenish the Earth. 

For example: As people become more affluent they tend to have less children. This seems to be universal and not just cultural. Also, the reduction in male fertility could be a natural buffer against overpopulation. Just my theory.

One phenomenon is how after war when a large part of the male population is wiped out the balance between male and female births leans toward the male to rebalance the population again. There's a "boom" in births also this the term "baby boomers".

So, I do not believe God would allow the population on planet Earth to surpass Earth's ability to sustain it.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who is fully vaccinated against the virus, has tested positive for Covid-19.

Does anyone know any stats of the % of vaccinated people catching covid? 

 

BTW: Again for clarification, I am not anti vaccine, just against government forcing mandatory vaccines.

As far as I know, John, there are only one or two people here that believe some of the things that this man mentions, are in these vaccines. He's still not saying anything about the efficacy of the vaccines, addressing the breakthrough infections, the blood clots caused by the vaccines, etc. I don't think many here are going to be swayed by a PH.D. who only addresses certain things that have been propelled through the Q-Anon group. This hyper-sensationalist group is really off their nut! Still, I wouldn't ever want to stop people from posting their opinions or concerns either way...I don't believe in censorship. At least he says the vaccine should be voluntary.

I can easily post many videos of PhDs contradicting this man. 

We shall find out within the next five years how the experimental vax turns out. Until that time I will not be Fauci's or Gates guinea pig.

The creator of the PCR test has stated the test is not designed to test for infection.

Q-Anon is far more than a creation of the media...I have too many friends who were involved in that junk, and I had to distance myself from their idiocy! Anyone can post a bunch of video's disputing this man's reporting on the vaccines...and I agree...I won't be a guinea pig for the vaccines either. The government has made it pretty clear that they're collecting data on everyone that has the vaccines and using THIS as their research...people can be such fools and fall for nearly anything the ruling classes have to say. I can't and won't.
