Sunday April 5th – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    You Can Make a Difference

    By Pastor John Fredericksen

    One person can always make a difference. By one vote America voted to make English our official language over German, Texas was added to the union, Andrew Johnson was saved from impeachment, and Adolf Hitler gained power over the Nazi party.

    In the spiritual realm, one person has frequently made an enormous difference. Only Jehosheba hid young Joash from being killed, enabling him to become a godly king (2 Kings 11). Elijah stood alone against hundreds of false prophets, and a wicked king and queen (1 Kings 18). Jonathan alone protected David from the murderous plots of Saul (1 Sam. 19). Nathan stood alone to rebuke David, influencing him to get right with the Lord (2 Sam. 12).

    God used one man, Paul, to reveal our new dispensation of grace, and Onesiphorus to encourage Paul in a time of great trial (2 Tim. 1:16-18). God can also use you to make an important difference in your sphere of influence. “Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might” (Eph. 6:10), seeking to make a difference through ministry to others.

    To the Reader:

    Some of our Two Minutes articles were written many years ago by Pastor C. R. Stam for publication in newspapers. When many of these articles were later compiled in book form, Pastor Stam wrote this word of explanation in the Preface:

    “It should be borne in mind that the newspaper column, Two Minutes With the Bible, has now been published for many years, so that local, national and international events are discussed as if they occurred only recently. Rather than rewrite or date such articles, we have left them just as they were when first published. This, we felt, would add to the interest, especially since our readers understand that they first appeared as newspaper articles.”

    To this we would add that the same is true for the articles written by others that we continue to add, on a regular basis, to the Two Minutes library. We hope that you’ll agree that while some of the references in these articles are dated, the spiritual truths taught therein are timeless.

    2 Kings 11:1 And when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed royal.
    2 But Jehosheba, the daughter of king Joram, sister of Ahaziah, took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him from among the king’s sons which were slain; and they hid him, even him and his nurse, in the bedchamber from Athaliah, so that he was not slain….
    17 And Jehoiada made a covenant between the LORD and the king and the people, that they should be the LORD’S people; between the king also and the people…..

    1 Kings18:15 And Elijah said, As the LORD of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, I will surely shew myself unto him to day.
    16 So Obadiah went to meet Ahab, and told him: and Ahab went to meet Elijah.
    17 And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?
    18 And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.

    1 Samuel 19:1 And Saul spake to Jonathan his son, and to all his servants, that they should kill David.
    2 But Jonathan Saul’s son delighted much in David: and Jonathan told David, saying, Saul my father seeketh to kill thee: now therefore, I pray thee, take heed to thyself until the morning, and abide in a secret place, and hide thyself:
    3 And I will go out and stand beside my father in the field where thou art, and I will commune with my father of thee; and what I see, that I will tell thee.

    2 Samuel 12:13 And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.
    14 Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.

    2 Timothy 1:16 The Lord give mercy unto the house of Onesiphorus; for he oft refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain:
    17 But, when he was in Rome, he sought me out very diligently, and found me.
    18 The Lord grant unto him that he may find mercy of the Lord in that day: and in how many things he ministered unto me at Ephesus, thou knowest very well.

    Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

    At 10:30 pm Saturday (last night) my mother’s nursing home called to say my mother tested positive for CV19. Test administrated 4/1. Results returned evening of 4/4.

    Mom is 89 years old. Had severe ischemic stroke last June. Paralyzed entire left side. Incontinent. Needs to be Hoyered into/out of bed. Has trouble swallowing and hence, has PEG feeding tube. Diagnosed with onset vascular dementia.

    Despite all that she’s remarkable cognizant of what’s going on around her. Still feisty. But she doesn’t know she’s never going home. Says of her paralyzed left arm “It’s been that way for years”. Tells me she wants to go home. I say “The doctor said as soon as you can walk you can go home. Let’s try PT again, ok?”

    She answers the same every time “I can walk!” When I say ok, show me, she says not now.

    Nursing homes in my state were directed by state DPH to close to all visitors about a month ago. That means staff transmitted CV19 to my mother. The night nurse told me (last night) “several” residents are being treated for CV19! “How the hell many is several?”, I asked. “I’m not allowed to tell you”, she answered.

    If “several” are infected, and no visitors have been allowed since early March, then staff transmitted CV19.

    Have already requested my state rep, state senator, US rep and US senator immediately investigate nursing home’s protocol to determine if breached or followed DPH instructions.

    If you value your loved ones, follow the oft seemingly stupid sounding instructions of the medical community.

    You never know if it’s going to infect or take away someone you love.

      I’m so sorry that your mother is going through this. Do you know if they are using an accurate test? Up to 80% of some tests were coming back with false-positives. Can she get the treatment that has a high rate of success – the hydorchloroquine – and Z-pack antibiotics. A doctor in the news says he is using, the hydrochloroquine with doxycycline instead, as it has less effect on heart arrhythmias. You can research each of those things I mentioned, and they should pop up on a duckduckgo – maybe google search.

    Solace pt. 2. This piece is one of the most heartfelt laments that I think I’ve ever heard. Wil Ackerman, the founder of Windham Hill records, was a German war orphan who was adopted at age 9 by a Stanford professor. In itself, that experience had to have been wrenching for a little kid. But then, his adoptive mother committed suicide when he was just13 (and, reportedly, he was the one who discovered her body). By his early 20’s Wil had become an accomplished guitarist and so he used his musical skill to compose a remembrance this life-changing event.

    The song’s title is a bit mysterious because we’re asked to decide just who’s impending death the song is really about. I’ve listened to this song many times over the years and, at first I thought his music was a tragic expression of his adoptive mother’s grief just before her death. I no long that is what the song is about. Instead, I think the virgin spirit is Wil himself and the impending death was his own experience of grief. Losing one’s real parents and then his adoptive mother only a short time later was something that could easily persuade a lonely child that perhaps his death might be next. But, of course, he wasn’t next and, instead, went on to discover remarkable creativity and drive within himself. I think this song is about Wil’s personal resurrection. The virgin spirit that he saved is his own.

      Wow, excellent post lgstarr! His theory that the current treatment paradigm could be way off and that COVID generates symptoms closer to severe altitude sickness — which is not treated by a ventilator– is very interesting. I just emailed a former guest speaker of mine, Dr. Peter Hackett, a leading high-altitude medicine expert and ER physician (not the notorious serial killer of the same name), to try to put him in touch with Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell (not “Dr. Ken,” the host here gets his name wrong.) These two should compare notes…

      Also, I’m glad to finally hear a physician go on the record about how ventilators, in the certain situations, can do more damage than good. While they are godsends in cases where a more-or-less healthy person needs to get through a temporary medical crisis, this whole COVID episode is making the public think of ventilators as having absolutely no downside. Wrong. They are akin to torture even with sedation and they can cause multiple system organ failure within a few days of treatment. Meanwhile, Cuomo is talking about people being on ventilators for 21 days — crazy! The MBAs who more-or-less run our hospitals these days like it when distraught family members are manipulated into putting end-of-life patients — people whose conditions will be 100% fatal with a very short time-frame — on ventilators during their final hours or days. It’s greed pure and simple…and it’s heartbreaking.

            A NYC physician named Cameron Kyle-Sidell has posted two videos on YouTube, pleading for health practitioners to recognize that COVID-19 is not a pneumonia-like disease at all. It’s an oxygen deprivation condition, and the use of ventilators may be doing more harm than good with some patients. The ventilators themselves, due to the high-pressure methods they are running, may be damaging the lungs and leading to widespread harm of patients.

        I can remember during my LE experience some guys in the military huffing halon out of gloves and similar containers. The halon was meant to stop fires by severely reducing the amount of oxygen in an enclosed environment, like a room. These guys (firefighters) would put a quick shot of halon into that glove and snort it. It produces what’s been described as a “high,” though it’s akin to passing out from oxygen deprivation. Would what the dr is discussing be similar to symptoms caused by halon ingestion?

          Right. I believe he is saying just that: oxygen deprivation. The rub is determining what is the cause. Doctors are assuming that the lungs aren’t processing and delivering it to the blood. He is suggesting the lungs are working just fine, but the blood can’t receive and carry the oxygen the lungs are delivering. Should be able to determine that from a blood test. How many red cells and are they damaged or somehow rendered ineffective by the virus. Perhaps an aplastic or sickle cell anemia treatment could be tried.

They would be delivered by a standard gas or chemical artillery/rocket projectile, or sprayed from aircraft or helicopters. What you essentially do is suffocate, and no chem-bio mask in the world will stop it AFAIK. Fortunately its effects are very short-term, measured in minutes if I’m remembering right. If you can find and read any information on this sort of chemical weaponry it might help you learn some facets of how it attacks blood hemoglobin and stops oxygen transfer from the blood which may in turn apply to what you are describing.

      This post brings to mind an article I recently read, or at least a portion of it.

      FTA: “We find that whole communities suddenly fix their minds upon one object, and go mad in its pursuit; that millions of people become simultaneously impressed with one delusion, and run after it, till their attention is caught by some new folly more captivating than the first.’

      In the case of this video, it sounds like the medical community has become fixated on the delusion of ventilators as a treatment for the Chinese virus, but that the treatment may actually be not only ineffective but harmful. Not uncommon, and not the first time. A century and a half ago doctors would have been bleeding their patients.

      We are always our own first responders. We are also always our own best experts. Question everything. Use your own intelligence and common sense. And if the recommended treatment doesn’t make sense to you, keep questioning. Challenge it until you are satisfied, even if it pisses everyone off. Take charge. Your life depends on it.

    HIS AGONY AND OUR FELLOWSHIP

    “Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples,…tarry ye here, and watch with Me.” Matthew xxvi. 36, 38

    We can never fathom the agony in Gethsemane, but at least we need not misunderstand it. It is the agony of God and Man in one, face to face with sin. We know nothing about Gethsemane in personal experience. Gethsemane and Calvary stand for something unique; they are the gateway into Life for us.

    It was not the death on the cross that Jesus feared in Gethsemane; He stated most emphatically that He came on purpose to die. In Gethsemane He feared lest He might not get through as Son of Man. He would get through as Son of God – Satan could not touch Him there; but Satan’s onslaught was that He would get through as an isolated Figure only; and that would mean that He could be no Saviour. Read the record of the agony in the light of the temptation: “Then the devil leaveth Him for a season.” In Gethsemane Satan came back and was again overthrown. Satan’s final onslaught against our Lord as SON OF MAN is Gethsemane.

    The agony in Gethsemane is the agony of the Son of God in fulfilling His destiny as the Saviour of the world. The veil is drawn aside to reveal all it cost Him to make it possible for us to become sons of God. His agony is the basis of the simplicity of our salvation. The Cross of Christ is a triumph for the SON OF MAN. It was not only a sign that Our Lord had triumphed, but that He had triumphed to save the human race. Every human being can get through into the presence of God now because of what the Son of Man went through.

    I am curious about something and wanted to post here about it.

    On Friday we received in the US mail from our local supervisor of elections, unbidden, two applications for mail-in ballots for the November election. We have not requested absentee ballots for that election, on the premise that if they were submitted now it would give the Democrats among the election workers 7 months to falsify our ballots in their favor. I’m old-fashioned and prefer to bury the elections people in ballots at the last minute to make vote falsification at least a little harder.

    If this was a routine mailing, its timing is terrible, almost 7 months to the day prior to the election. If it’s not routine, then the unspoken message here is, “Get ready to have your movements curtailed for at least 7 more months, and in the meantime, here are your absentee ballots – to at least give you the appearance of having your ballots count for something.”

    Has anyone else received such applications yet – even if you have not asked for them? This just brought me up short because normally you’ve got to in person to the election office to ask for an absentee ballot, whereupon you’re subjected to what amounts to an old-fashioned police interrogation about why you won’t be available to vote on 11-3-20.

    Pope Francis drops ‘Vicar of Christ’ title in Vatican yearbook

    The title ‘Vicar of Jesus Christ’ stems from Holy Scripture where Jesus grants St. Peter the power of the keys in the Church

    April 2, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – In a surprise move, Pope Francis has dropped the historic and essential title “Vicar of Christ” from the 2020 Pontifical Yearbook, the Holy See’s annual directory, relegating the title to a footnote, calling it a “historical title.”

    While previous yearbooks listed the title “Vicar of Christ” and the name of the reigning Pope under that title, this year’s annual directory simply lists the name “Jorge Mario Bergoglio,” the name of the man who became Pope Francis in 2013. A photo of this year’s yearbook was published by Rome-based journalist Marco Tosatti.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    A prayer for Justice Kavanaugh and Gen. Flynn:

    Prayer to St. Michael

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    An Orthodox Prayer for Deliverance from COVID-19

    O God Almighty, Lord of Heaven and earth, and of all creation visible and invisible, in Thine ineffable goodness look down upon us, Thy people gathered in Thy Holy Name. Be Thou our helper and defender in this day of affliction. Thou knowest our weakness. Thou hearest our cry in repentance and contrition of heart. O Lord who lovest mankind, deliver us from the impending threat of the Corona Virus. Send Thine angel to watch over us and protect us. Grant health and recovery to those suffering from this virus. Guide the hands of physicians and preserve those who are healthy. Enable us to continue to serve our suffering brothers and sisters in peace that together we may glorify Thy most honorable and majestic Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages.

    Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
