The President, CoronaVirus, and the Economy

I don’t believe the President will let the economy be destroyed. We should be back up and operating in two weeks or so. That is my prediction. That gives enough time for REAL information and statistics to come out about the spreading of the novel Corona Virus.

Currently, the whole state of Illinois is shut down and the virus is only noticeably spreading in the Cook County area. Saturday, of about 4700 tests done, the confirmed cases were 588 (12.5%), with 6 deaths (1%). The highest concentration (and only concentration) of the confirmed cases is in Cook County and surrounding areas. That is to be expected with Chicago being such a large population center. So much so, they control the politics of the whole state. Lesser, single cases, at most 5 or so, have been determined in downstate Illinois, with even less in the far southern and eastern half. Two highly populated counties across from St. Louis, Madison and St. Clair, still show only 1- 3 cases after the first reporting of those 4-5 days ago. Spreading is not happening, unless increased testing shows us otherwise.

Of course, when the President determines that industry should start up again, the progressive, nutty media will scream in holy terror. Too bad for them. People will be desperate to get back to work and will ignore their prognostications, eventually finding them to be totally made up. I am always suspicious of “the sky is falling” people. You should be too.

Spiritually speaking, President Trump poked the Chinese dragon with his tariffs and decoupling from that county. The “dragon” struck back, but his tactics will fail. Of course China is laughing in their tea cups, but it does not matter, because this thing is on takedown. The Church has responded and is on the increase, as is the Democrat party, with conservative Democrat voters changing sides because of the madness. Ask me how I know. I am a poll worker in my precinct. Voters talk. I can see they are having a hard time staying with the Democrat party. The country has had a scare. Now many are turning away from evil and the Democrats’ Socialist agenda.

I read this morning that 21 million cell phone accounts in China have been canceled and 840,000 land lines closed. Beijing authorities announced this, but since they are so unreliable and devious, I can’t say I am sure about it. They usually don’t reveal things that make them look bad, unless by some warped brain fluke, they don’t think this does that. It is speculated by the writer that the deaths of coronavirus victims may be the cause. That makes sense.

The coming week should prove interesting as more testing is done in the U.S. and more statistics come out. We will know more by next weekend about how this thing is going. Hang on to your hats, because the lame stream media really wants to milk this for all it’s worth. We haven’t seen them tone it down yet, have we?

If You Feel Lost…

“If you’ve got pain, He’s a pain taker
If you feel lost, He’s a way maker
If you need freedom or saving, He’s a prison-shaking Savior
If you got chains, He’s a chain breaker.”     Zac Williams song

Get Rid of the Grasshopper Mindset!

A scripture read by our speaker this morning at church set off fireworks inside of me. It was really a continuation of a spark lit in intercessory prayer earlier in the morning when the prayer leader brought up the word “courage.” The church needs some courage right now, as well as commitment. Our society is in dire need of the love of God, and it will take courage to go out in this society and demonstrate that. It will take courage to believe God as society appears to crumble.

There is a mass exodus from our state (IL)  happening because the progressive scythe is swinging throughout the state, demanding more and more money from its citizens and killing businesses, by all kinds of methods, some of them quite amazing. Who thinks of these things, really? Who actually comes up with the idea to tax a car on trade-in value after one has already paid sales taxes when they purchased the car? What’s next? Taxes on yard sale items? Oh wait… do we already have that? Maybe.

Persistence pays

Persistence pays! It’s that catchy little slogan that I’m sure most of us have heard throughout our lives! It’s what your parents told you as they encouraged you to hang in there and keep at something until you mastered it. The fact is, persistence DOES pay, as I will share with you.

Lately I have been seeing some things about the lame man at the Pool of Bethesda. The story is in John Chapter 5:1-15. At the pool, the bible says a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, would come and sit on five porches around the pool, waiting for the moving of the water. They were waiting for a supernatural event. Why? Because an angel would show up at certain times and stir the waters of the pool; then whoever could get themselves first into the pool, would experience a physical healing of their ailment. This would be the equivalent of standing in  line for a surgery and they call one name maybe once or twice a day. I wonder who discovered that when the waters moved, a healing would happen…

Count it All Joy…

The book of James, Chapter 1:2-4 says “My brothers, count it all joy when you fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith works patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that you may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

What in the world is James talking about? This doesn’t sound like something human nature is even capable of. No one enjoys going through adversity. It is not an idea that makes sense. Even Jesus, on the night He was betrayed, prayed that the coming adversity would pass from Him.

Loving the Invisible God

“To know, know, know him, is to love, love, love him…” Remember that old song? It’s a 1958 single by the Teddy Bears. It wasn’t written about God, but I like to use it about God.

We humans are very tied to our natural world, what we can see, touch, smell and hear. We very much depend on the concrete things in life. Invisible things are too intangible for most humans. The debate about the existence of God has been going on since the beginning of time, and it continues to this day. Many cannot fathom an invisible God they cannot see, touch, smell and hear, a God outside of their natural senses.
