      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.

Once again, turn off the Godless reprobate fake news and get your facts from those whom have no reprobate agendas to push. You have allowed your minds to be taken captive by Satan when you let the boob tube and all their associated Godless "news" websites brainwash you. You are not smart, nor are you informed if you get your "facts" from any of them.

Keep your eyes on the real facts and not the main stream media lies. FOX is simply opposition control, nothing more. FOX news promotes the same Godless agendas of abortion on demand and deviant sexual perversion as the other fake outlets. The globalists need a boob tube source that would be viewed as somewhat normal sharing an opposing worldview of the blatantly obvious satanic outlets (cnn, msnbc, pbs, abc, nbc, wapo, nyt, etc) to the majority of citizens or they would be way too obvious with their propaganda:

Your reprobates in congress all follow the instructions from their masters in China:

Trump Supporter Wh fo Protested Against Vaccinations Dies of COVID-19

You forget to mention, though, BB, many who have supported the vax have caught Covid and died, or died from the virus. Hmmm....what a dilemma for you.

I wish his supporters would listen to him on the vaccination. I saw that Hannity encouraged people to get their vaccine on his show recently. As someone, I don't know who, said, "I trust science more than anything I read on Facebook". 

There have been anti-vaccination folk beginning with people who opposed Jenner. People fought the small pox vaccine. Fortunately they did not accomplish their goals and now there is no small pox anywhere in the world. 

That will not happen with COVID because it will continue to mutate. We can hope and pray it mutates into a less dangerous disease. A virus can mutate in either direction.

 

Sorry, BB...but there is a variant of smallpox that was just recently reported on. It's possible that within all your Republican bashing you missed it:  https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/16/health/monkeypox-case-import-dallas/index.html

Sorry, BrotherTony, monkeypox is not smallpox just as chickenpox is not small pox ... different diseases. Smallpox was much worse and killed many people. The World Health Organization declared the world free of smallpox on May 8th, 1980. In 1978 Jane Parker was the last known person to die of smallpox.

True, BB. I mistakenly read the wrong reports in my virology files. Thank you.

No problem. None of us want any of the 'pox' diseases.

No, we don't! One of my distant relatives had smallpox back in the 1940s in France during WWII. Not sure if it's true or not, but know the US Military has kept a strong hold on the records.

Florida, Missouri, and Texas now account for 40% of all new COVID cases ... and all went Republican in the last election. Fortunately people may finally be getting the idea that vaccinations are a good idea. Each is above the national average for people getting vaccinations. 97% of all the deaths have been unvaccinated people.

Funny how most all the new numbers positive are false positives with NO SYMPTOMS,  isn't it ?

 

Oh , wait,  no, it is not funny at all.  PHamakeia has deceived the whole world now, as written in The Apocolypse ...  only a few, a remnant,  are saved from the overall deception.   That's good !  ? >> It means the end is so much more close now than yesterday !  JESUS COMES SOON!  (no one knows the time or day, but we do know it is already the last minutes of time,  since IN THE BIBLE, it was already "the last hour" ).

 

Be happy in Jesus Plan.  Be aware the politicians and doctors are liars, hypocrites, deceivers, deceived .

Search >  the virus theory.

Many proofs for hundred plus years the pandemic is totally fraudulent,  (of course for money)

Just because the state went Republican doesn't mean that a majority of the people who aren't getting the vaccination are Republican. The largest group of people not being vaccinated are African American males. They decline the vax more than anybody else.

At a recovery rate of 99.8% the only "less dangerous" it could become is 0  zero.

So..they al went Republican! Your point, BB? It doesn't prove that the people declining the vaccine ar all Republican. Again, you're being intentionally obtuse!

97% huh? Might that number be because of the majority of them died before any vaccine, rather than because people declined to get  the jab?

The answer is such an obvious "No" that I will not bother to explain it. I am sure you can figure out why your questions is so amazing.

Not all, BT, but the majority. The majority of the people who vote in those states are registered Republican, thus it follows that the majority who become ill are Republican. This is especially true as conservative talking heads and some GOP politicians have encouraged people not to get vaccinated. Some of those politicians and talking heads have changed their tune, but not all. The deaths of many people, in both parties, are on their heads IMHO.

Well, BB, if they ARE Republican, then good for them! They've learned to look at all sources and to come out with the correct conclusions...that this "pandemic" is something that wasn't, that it was nothing more than the hugest transfer of wealth in world history, and also a trial run to see if the public could be scared into submission by world medical establishments and governments. I'm glad to know there is at least a remnant who can still think for themselves and not swallow the government Kool-Aid!

I only personally know of two individuals who caught the Wu-Flu one was my nephew's wife. She felt "down" for two days. Apparently, she was a hardcore mask wearer too. My barber's son got it and he had mild like flu symptoms for three days. Other than that I received about 2-3 emails from school of people who got it, all staff members, but never heard anything after that like they were hospitalized or dead. 

I never heard of any students contracting the Wu.

Now, I'm not denying it's real but I would think a "deadly pandemic" would be more noticeable around me. When the Spanish Flu hit America it could be seen all around. You didn't need the news to tell you it was there.

Alabama governor, Kay Ivey, says 'it is time to start blaming unvaccinated folks' as pandemic worsens. 

When asked what it would take to get people to get the vaccination she replied;

"I don't know. You tell me. Folks [are] supposed to have common sense. But it's time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It's the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down."
