Great Sermon! This was a great and very interesting message. Thank God that we have a Bible today. This is a great series of messages I Can't wait to hear the rest of the story. Thanks Doc Jim for all your research on this very interesting subject.

Carl, your comment was right on and simply demonstrates the hypocrisy of governments. They simply donâ€™t care about the lives of these poor and destitute people. I sometimes try to imagine what it must be like to live in an area where there is this kind of evil taking place around me and I simply canâ€™t comprehend it.
Matthew 24:7 â€śFor nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.â€ť
I know that the above scripture has been misused to centuries, but 1 day to God is the same as 1,000 to us. But, we should always recognize these signs when they take place and remember the Lordâ€™s words.
I always pray that the Lord will return quickly and when things like this happen I pray it with more sincerity.

And whether it returns to the fringes or not I think will depend on whether people in office can resist using it.â€ť

which is absurd since Indians and Arabs love to point out their cultures' contributions to mathematics, e.g. our decimal number system and the work of this man: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammad_ibn_Musa_al-Khwarizmi
James Thomas wrote: guess .. the verse that speaks of the effects your referring to and that the virus is one of those plagues?
Good Morning James,
No, your guess is based upon what you think I am saying, that I'm not. I wasn't looking for proof texts on plagues? Holding an historacist interpretation of prophetic scripture, I was looking at the time line of history. I believe the 6th trumpet (civil judgments on usurpers) and 6th vial (judgments upon false churches) is now effecting the eastern section of the former R. Empire, places visited in Paul's missionary journey's there. But that is why you ended your sentence with a ? isn't it?
On the Lord's day the topic's under my consideration began in Ezekiel 9 and Isa 6 but the application was relative to 1 Co 11:3,10 as I was trying to understand what the LORD was showing me in answer to prayer. The loss of the visible church Ephes 4:1-13 is the real judgment in the west, but that started long before the "virus".
I post here because of loneliness and a want of fellowship but not unlike other matters of choice it the best of 2 evils. Evil is not a choice for a Christian. There are many precepts violated.
Forgive my lack of modesty as the weaker vessel. I will trust the Lord for 1 Pete
US- last one to you. You are using a common tactic on this forum, rabbit trails and diversions. I addressed your error of stating the Gospel demands a response, which is what I took issue with. From your 8/7 8:55am post, "If you donâ€™t see the need for a response that is clearly taught in Scripture then maybe I am not communicating it well." My partial response-",Likewise, if you don't see the fact God already determined the elect and the reprobate, therefore He already knows the outcome-14What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. 15For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. 16So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. 17For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. 18Therefore âť¤ď¸Źhath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardenet1hâť¤ď¸Ź." Since you can't stay on topic, there's no point in continuing. False accusations wear thin after a while. I am done with your childish games and endless rabbit trails.
Our miserable pro-Islamic Foreugn Office, as a matter of urgency, should summon the Pakistani High Commissionsr (equivalent to an ambassador as Pakistan is in the Commonwealth of Nations,, basically nations with a former imperial link to Britain), to explain this disgraceful decision, and we should threaten to suspend any foreign aid, until dreadful laws like this one, and the infamous blasphemy laws are rescinded. In Britain and the USA, this rapist and paedophile would be in gaol, and the judge would be unceremoniously kicked off the bench!!!
Nigeria and the U.N. should stop pussy-footing around and send in some commandos and take these evil people out for good. If it were Christians slaughtering Muslims it would be an international scandal labelled as an holocaust.
