Nearly half of the Country believes we are experiencing a ‘wake-up call’ from God

Apr 2, 2020

OPINION (ETH) – A new National Survey is indicating that nearly half of the country now believes that the deadly coronavirus pandemic sweeping the Nation and the Globe is a “wake-up call” from God, and one-third see this as the “last days” foretold by the Bible.  This new key finding was revealed in the Joshua Fund’s survey.

According to the survey, Some 44% believed that the current pandemic is a “wake-up call for us to turn back to faith in God” and “signs of coming judgment,” said the Joshua Fund, a charitable organization created to mobilize Christians to “bless Israel and her neighbors in the name of Jesus.”

Bestselling author Joel Rosenberg who created the fund with his wife, Lynn Rosenberg, stated: “Americans in near full lockdown are anxious, and understandably so. Yet millions are turning to God, the Bible, and Christian sermons for answers, some of them for the first time.

That may be the most important silver lining in this crisis so far.”  One-third of respondents of this poll also said they fear the end really is near. The Joshua Fund said that “29% said they believe that this crisis indicates that ‘We are living in what the Bible calls the ‘last days.’” (Click to Source)

5 Natural remedies that boost immunity for protection from the coronavirus

Monday, April 06, 2020 by: Divina Ramirez

(Natural News) The rapidly spreading coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a viral respiratory infection that causes flu-like symptoms. Despite the growing number of cases worldwide, the disease itself is not particularly fatal, especially given a functioning immune system and a lack of underlying conditions. Experts suggest that the disease can cause severe, life-threatening symptoms especially given immunocompromised individuals and preexisting respiratory and cardiovascular conditions.

Fortunately, it appears that recovery is possible. But it is largely dependent on the individual’s immune system and medical history. Ideally, the immune system should be able to identify and eliminate viruses and bacteria. However, the immune system can be compromised by factors like poor lifestyle and nutrition, thus rendering the body susceptible to infection and disease.

Natural remedies that reduce the risk of infection

Fortunately, natural remedies can strengthen immune functions and enhance immune responses to infection and disease.

Vitamin C

As a powerful antioxidant, vitamin C is commonly linked to immunity enhancement due to its ability to stimulate the production of antibodies and white blood cells. It also has antibacterial properties that can inhibit the growth of bacteria given an infection. Moreover, vitamin C works alongside plant compounds that can also be found in vitamin C-rich foods, such as carotenoids and flavonoids. Together, these antioxidants enhance the body’s antiviral responses. Additionally, a recent study published in the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine revealed that high doses of vitamin C are effective against the influenza virus. Common sources of vitamin C include citrus fruits and cruciferous vegetables.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D also plays an important role in immunity enhancement. Technically speaking, vitamin D is a prohormone produced by the liver and pancreas upon the skin’s exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. That being said, its presence can significantly affect the body’s immune responses to disease-causing pathogens. In particular, vitamin D combats pathogens that cause respiratory conditions like asthma and pneumonia, according to a recent study published in The British Medical Journal. Foods that contain high levels of vitamin D include fish, eggs and mushrooms. Additionally, adequate sun exposure can boost vitamin D production.

Vitamin E

Like vitamin C, vitamin E is also a popular antioxidant that is linked to immunity. White blood cells are known to contain high concentrations of vitamin E. As a vital component of the immune system, vitamin E regulates the number of natural killer cells that combat pathogens. Additionally, adequate vitamin E intake is linked to enhanced immune responses to infection, improved muscle strength and a reduced risk of chronic and degenerative diseases. To enjoy the health benefits of vitamin E, eat plenty of nuts and seeds like almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds.

Elderberry

The elderberry is an excellent source of antioxidants known as anthocyanins that enhance immune functions. As a natural remedy, the elderberry is commonly used to treat symptoms of the common cold due to its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Clinical trials suggest that the elderberry can also be used as a potent antiviral agent against the flu virus. Additionally, the elderberry contains high amounts of vitamin C that enhances its flu-fighting properties.

Kefir

Kefir is a fermented beverage that contains yeast, milk proteins and bacteria. Like yogurt, kefir is also a great source of protein and probiotics that aid digestion and prevent gastrointestinal infections. But kefir also contains high amounts of B complex vitamins that keep the immune system strong. Moreover, kefir is known to have antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

You can easily create kefir milk by mixing active kefir grains and four cups of raw milk. Transfer the mixture into a jar or container and cover using a coffee filter or butter muslin. Let it rest in a warm spot to facilitate fermentation. Let the bacterial culture thrive until the mixture begins to emit a pleasant aroma. The mixture itself should have a thick consistency.

Protective measures against infection

Natural remedies can only do so much if you do not make an effort to lower the risk of infection. Therefore, it is recommended to observe protective measures that can not only prevent infection, but also give you peace of mind amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Practice personal hygiene

Good hygiene plays an important role in the prevention of infections. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends frequently washing the hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds to ensure the total elimination of germs and bacteria. Observing proper cough and sneeze etiquette in public places can also safeguard against transmission. If you are a member of a household, it is also good practice to leave alcohol-based sanitizers or sanitizing wipes around common living areas.

Clean and disinfect surfaces

Contagious infections, such as pneumonia, influenza and COVID-19, spread via respiratory droplets. However, viruses can survive, so to speak, on solid surfaces. For instance, SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, can remain viable on plastic and stainless steel for up to 72 hours. Therefore, an individual can still contract the infection by touching contaminated surfaces and then touching the eyes, nose or mouth. To minimize the risk of exposure to contaminated surfaces, regularly clean and disinfect surfaces that are often touched, such as doorknobs, light switches and remote controls.

Exercise regularly

Exercise can go a long way toward enhancing the immune system. For instance, physical activity keeps the nasal tract clear of toxins and irritants. Depending on the type of exercise, physical activity can also strengthen the lungs, build stamina and improve endurance. Moreover, physical activity is linked to higher levels of antibodies and white blood cells that combat pathogens.

A strong immune system is well-equipped to combat pathogens. Given the current coronavirus pandemic, it is becoming increasingly important to strictly follow protective measures against infection, as well as prepare the body’s natural defenses by consuming immune-boosting foods that contain high amounts of nutrients.

Yes, they WANT you to STARVE: Walmart blocks customers from buying garden seeds, claiming seeds aren’t “essential” supplies

Saturday, April 04, 2020 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) By now, you might be coming around to the truth about the global depopulation agenda we’ve been trying to warn about for years. If you want the full details of this agenda and who’s behind it, watch all my free videos at OblivionAgenda.com.

Now, the agenda to starve as many people as possible is becoming abundantly clear as Walmart and other big box stores are blocking customers from buying garden seeds, claiming gardening supplies aren’t “essential.” This is being done under the order of state authorities.

“The [Vermont] state’s Agency of Commerce and Community Development announced on Tuesday that to reduce the spread of the coronavirus, it has ordered big-box retailers to limit its in-person sales to only essential items, including food, beverages and medicine,” reports Today.com. Also in the article:

The order declared a host of goods — from clothing, toys, electronics and jewelry to paint, gardening and sports equipment — off limits to in-store customers.

Garden seeds are not allowed to be purchased, in other words. No seeds means no food for millions of people who will soon discover just how horribly the food supply lines have collapsed.

Newswars.com also reports:

Walmart stores in New England are sealing off entire aisles with products deemed “unnecessary” in attempts to combat the scourge of shoppers wandering around to relieve coronavirus quarantine fatigue.

According to CBS Boston, Walmart in addition to Home Depot and BJ’s Wholesale stores in the town of Chicopee, Massachusetts, worked with the city health department to “reduce unnecessary roaming around aisles and putting others at risk.”

Under this “retail tyranny,” growing food is not considered “essential.” And if you claim to want garden seeds, you’re a “hoarder,” see?

Yes, they want you to starve to death… it’s the plan

In World War II, Americans were told to plant “victory gardens” to help feed the masses and create food redundancy. That’s because in the 1940s, the government wanted people to survive and continue to work in factories to grow the economy. But today, you are barred from buying garden seeds because the bureaucrats and politicians in charge quite literally want you to die. They’ve declared human beings to be the enemy of the world (climate change) and the enemy of globalism (because people want to be free, which opposes their globalist agenda).

That’s why they first tried to block all the news about hydroxychloroquine, a lifesaving drug that, when combined with supplemental zinc, has a near-100 percent cure rate for coronavirus patients.

They’ve also silenced this website, blocking everything we’ve tried to share about zinc, vitamin D, IV vitamin C therapy and other natural cures that save lives and help end human suffering.

We publish a website called Depopulation.news where we’ve documented the depopulation agenda that’s now being run by globalists. The entire “climate change” hoax was all part of pushing global depopulation, and now the coronavirus is being used to imprison everyone in their own homes while denying them the tools they need to grow their own food.

Yes, to repeat, the powers that be literally want you to die. Get it through your head. They are at war with humanity. You have been scheduled for termination, get it? You can no longer write this off as a “conspiracy theory.” You will die if you don’t come to grips with reality. (They will make sure of it.)

And the coming coronavirus vaccine shot will be the final euthanasia “kill switch.” It will be loaded up with deadly viral strains and toxic chemicals that will make sure a second wave of mass deaths is unleashed across the planet. After all, Bill Gates himself — “Mr. Depopulation” — is funding seven different coronavirus vaccines to make sure they all achieve the real goal: Eliminating humanity from planet Earth.

I urge you to watch the videos at OblivionAgenda.com to learn the truth about why our planet is being prepared for what I call the “post-human era.” There is a plan for planet Earth, but that plan does not include billions of humans living on it. (Click to Source)

Bill Gates Calls for a “Digital Certificate” to Identify Who Received COVID-19 Vaccine

Bill Gates recently stated on Reddit that “digital certificates” will be used to identify who received the upcoming COVID-19 vaccine. And these certificates will also be used to identify who can conduct business or not. Here’s how this plan is already backed by a massive organization called ID2020.

Published on April 1, 2020 – By Vigilant Citizen

For years, Bill Gates has been at the forefront of research regarding global pandemics and mass vaccination campaigns. In the past decade, Gates went on record several times stating that the world was not ready for a global pandemic.

In October 2019 (only a few months before the apparition of COVID-19) the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (in cooperation with the World Economic Forum) hosted Event 201, a 3.5-hour table-top simulation of a global pandemic.

Bill Gates Calls for a "Digital Certificate" to Identify Who Received COVID-19 Vaccine

Oddly enough, this simulation was about a novel coronavirus that would kill millions. About eight weeks later, an actual novel coronavirus spurred in China. This lead to some people wondering if this exercise actually predicted the spread of COVID-19. In response to these questions, a statement was posted on the Event 201 website.

Statement about nCoV and our pandemic exercise

In October 2019, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security hosted a pandemic tabletop exercise called Event 201 with partners, the World Economic Forum and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Recently, the Center for Health Security has received questions about whether that pandemic exercise predicted the current novel coronavirus outbreak in China. To be clear, the Center for Health Security and partners did not make a prediction during our tabletop exercise. For the scenario, we modeled a fictional coronavirus pandemic, but we explicitly stated that it was not a prediction. Instead, the exercise served to highlight preparedness and response challenges that would likely arise in a very severe pandemic. We are not now predicting that the nCoV-2019 outbreak will kill 65 million people. Although our tabletop exercise included a mock novel coronavirus, the inputs we used for modeling the potential impact of that fictional virus are not similar to nCoV-2019.

On March 13th, about a day after COVID-19 began shutting down the entire Western world, Bill Gates stepped down from the public board of Microsoft to “dedicate more time to philanthropic priorities including global health and development, education, and climate change”. As the pandemic spread across the world, Gates became an outspoken and authoritative figure on the pandemic crisis, appearing all over mass media to share his views and recommendations.

On March 18th, Bill Gates took part in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit titled I’m Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. AMA about COVID-19. where he answered questions about the pandemic. In one of his answers, Gates referred to a “digital certificate” to keep track of who got vaccinated.

A Reddit user named RemoteControlledUser asked this question:

What changes are we going to have to make to how businesses operate to maintain our economy while providing social distancing?

Bill Gates’ answer:

The question of which businesses should keep going is tricky. Certainly food supply and the health system. We still need water, electricity and the internet. Supply chains for critical things need to be maintained. Countries are still figuring out what to keep running.

Eventually we will have some digital certificates to show who has recovered or been tested recently or when we have a vaccine who has received it.

Bill Gates Calls for a "Digital Certificate" to Identify Who Received COVID-19 Vaccine

While most of Gates’ answers were received with praise, this one raised lots of eyebrows. The most upvoted reply highlights the similarities between Gates’ solution and the “Mark of the Beast” in the Bible.

Bill Gates Calls for a "Digital Certificate" to Identify Who Received COVID-19 Vaccine

This concept of a “digital certificate” to store medical information (including vaccines received) and to grant access to rights or services was not a mere suggestion. It is part of a massive project that is propelled by a powerful group called ID2020 which is backed by the United Nations, the Rockefeller Foundation and … Bill Gates’ Microsoft.

ID2020

Bill Gates Calls for a "Digital Certificate" to Identify Who Received COVID-19 Vaccine

Simply put, ID2020 is looking to create a digital identification system that would store a wealth of personal information and that would go beyond the limits of national governments. The official website of ID2020 states that a global digital identity is necessary to keep track of refugees and ID-less people in developing countries. Of course, people in developed countries would be ID-ed as well. The website states:

We Need to Get Digital ID Right

Unfortunately, current models of digital ID do not meet everyone’s needs. They are generally archaic, insecure, lacking adequate privacy protection, and for over a billion people worldwide, unavailable.

Everyone should have access to a digital ID that enables them to prove who they are across institutional and international borders and across time, while giving them control over how their personal information is collected, used, and shared.

In an article published by ID2020 in 2018, vaccines are the perfect way to introduce digital identity to the world – especially infants. Appropriately titled Immunization: an entry point for digital identity, the article states:

Because immunization is conducted in infancy, providing children with a digital child health card would give them a unique, portable digital identity early in life. And as children grow, their digital child health card can be used to access secondary services, such as primary school, or ease the process of obtaining alternative credentials. Effectively the child health card becomes the first step in establishing a legal, broadly recognized identity.

In short, according to ID2020, vaccinations are the perfect opportunity to introduce a digital ID that would store the medical history of each individual. This identity would also be used to grant access to basic rights and services.

ID2020 is already testing the introduction of digital IDs in Bangladesh. On August 2019, ID2020 published a “Request for information” article stating:

A2i and its partners Gavi and ID2020 are committed to jointly researching and implementing a unique ID for infants through digitisation of vaccination processes in Bangladesh.

The program will provide infants and children with a portable, biometrically-linked digital ID either at the point of birth registration or at the time of their immunizations, simultaneously supporting three shared objectives:

Driving improvements in CRVS (Demographic and Social Statistics) coverage and process

Supporting improvements in vaccination process and equity

Ultimately, supporting access to rights and services throughout one’s life-course.

In this Bangladesh experiment, digital ID is “biometrically-linked”, meaning that it is based on the fingerprints of individuals. The article describes the process in place:

Information is required regarding biometric scanners capable of capturing the fingerprint biometrics of parents during phase 1 with the ambition to also effectively capture infant biometrics in phase 2. Scanners can be cabled or Bluetooth. Scanners must be a minimum of FBI certified FAP30, portable, robust and capturing a minimum of 500 pixels per inch. Please state the port type on the scanner(s), for example, micro USB, USB C, or other.

While this project is linked to biometrics, Bill Gates has been funding research on a different form of vaccine identification: The quantum dot tattoo.

Quantum Dot Tattoo

In December 2019, a group of researchers at the MIT published a study in Science Translational Medicine about the use of quantum dot tattoos to identify who people who received a vaccine.

Bill Gates Calls for a "Digital Certificate" to Identify Who Received COVID-19 Vaccine

An article in Futurism titled An Invisible Quantum Dot ‘Tattoo’ Could Be Used to ID Vaccinated Kids reviewed this study:

For the people overseeing nationwide vaccination initiatives in developing countries, keeping track of who had which vaccination and when can be a tough task.

But researchers from MIT might have a solution: they’ve created an ink that can be safely embedded in the skin alongside the vaccine itself, and it’s only visible using a special smartphone camera app and filter.

In other words, they’ve found a covert way to embed the record of a vaccination directly in a patient’s skin rather than documenting it electronically or on paper – and their low-risk tracking system could greatly simplify the process of maintaining accurate vaccine records, especially on a larger scale.

(…)

The invisible “tattoo” accompanying the vaccine is a pattern made up of minuscule quantum dots – tiny semiconducting crystals that reflect light – that glows under infrared light. The pattern – and vaccine – gets delivered into the skin using hi-tech dissolvable microneedles made of a mixture of polymers and sugar.

“It’s possible someday that this ‘invisible’ approach could create new possibilities for data storage, biosensing, and vaccine applications that could improve how medical care is provided, particularly in the developing world,” MIT professor and senior author Robert Langer said in the statement.

The article states that this study was the result of a direct request from Bill Gates.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded the team’s research, which was published in the journal Science Translational Medicine on Wednesday.

According to a Scientific American story, the project came about following a direct request from Microsoft founder Bill Gates himself, who has been personally involved in efforts to eradicate polio and measles through vaccinations.

In Conclusion

While answering a question about conducting business in the era of social distancing, Bill Gates replied that “digital certificates” will be used to determine who had COVID-19, who recovered from it, who was recently tested for it and who received the vaccine. This short (and unexpected answer) opened a gigantic pandora box of what could be in store in the near future: The inevitable mass vaccination campaign to eradicate COVID-19 would be the perfect opportunity to introduce a worldwide digital ID. This system would store a wealth of information about each individual (including vaccination history) and would be used to grant access to rights and services. Although Gates did not go into specifics, “digital certificates” could be linked to biometrics or a quantum dot tattoo.

Considering the fact that this entire project is eerily reminiscent to a passage in the Book of Revelation (a Mark of the Beast that is received on the “right hand or forehead” and that is required “to buy or to sell”), the introduction of such a system would most likely be received with a great deal of resistance. And not only from religious people. (Click to Source)

Locust numbers exploding: Swarms gather as heavy rains, closed borders and the coronavirus curbs delay pesticides: Millions of poor people poised for the second wave

Monday, 6 April 2020

Desert Locust situation update.

Widespread rains to cause further deterioration in the situation. Widespread rains that fell in late March could allow a dramatic increase in locust numbers in East Africa, eastern Yemen and southern Iran during the coming months. The current situation in East Africa remains extremely alarming as hopper bands and an increasing number of new swarms are forming in Kenya, southern Ethiopia and Somalia. This represents an unprecedented threat to food security and livelihoods because it coincides with the beginning of the long rains and the planting season.

Although ground and aerial control operations are in progress, widespread rains that fell in late March will allow the new swarms to mostly remain, mature and lay eggs while a few swarms could move from Kenya to Uganda, South Sudan and Ethiopia. During May, the eggs will hatch into hopper bands that will form new swarms in late June and July, which coincides with the start of the harvest.

Several swarms appeared in the past few days in Amudat district of northeast Uganda. The situation in Iran and Yemen is becoming increasingly worrisome. Swarms laid eggs along 900 km of coast in southwest Iran that are hatching and hopper bands are forming. The widespread heavy rains that fell in late March will allow another generation of breeding and a further increase in locusts during May, which will extend to Baluchistan, Pakistan.

Several swarms were reported in the past few days, including today, along both sides of the Oman/Yemen border in the interior and on the coast. The March rains will allow swarm breeding in eastern Yemen that will cause hopper bands to form and a further increase in locust numbers. fao

East Africa locust swarms gather as coronavirus curbs delay pesticides.

NAIROBI (Reuters) – Coronavirus-linked flight restrictions are hampering efforts to wipe out locust swarms on the verge of devastating crops in eastern Africa, the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said. The curbs have delayed deliveries of pesticides and, at the current rate of spraying, stocks in Kenya will run out within four days, Cyril Ferrand, FAO’s head of resilience for Eastern Africa, told Reuters on Thursday. “If we fail in the current (regional) control operations, because of lack of pesticides, then we could see 4 million more people struggle to feed their families,” Ferrand said.

Locust numbers exploded late last year, encouraged by unusual weather patterns amplified by climate change, and swarms disbursed eastwards from Yemen, with Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia the hardest-hit countries. The first invasion that terrorized farmers in a region where 20 million people struggle for food has given birth to a second wave of insects just as new-season crops are being planted. “They are very active, very voracious, and very mobile,” Ferrand said. “

If we don’t have pesticides, our planes cannot fly and people cannot spray and if we are not able to control these swarms, we will have big damage to crops.” In Kenya, the FAO was now looking to secure pesticides from local sources, Ferrand said, should the delays continue. The spreading of the new coronavirus has forced governments to close their borders, reducing cargo flights and disrupting global supply chains, including the production of pesticides in Europe and Asia. Reuters

Portion Summary

The twenty-fifth reading from the Torah and second reading from the book of Leviticus is called Tzav (צו), which means “Command.” The name comes from the first word of Leviticus 6:9, where the LORD says to Moses, “Command Aaron and his sons …” Tzav reiterates the five types of sacrifices introduced in the previous portion but this time discusses the priestly regulations pertaining to them. The last chapter of the reading describes the seven-day ordination of Aaron and his sons as they prepared to enter the holy priesthood.


In 1 Corinthians 15:53, Paul speaks of the resurrection, saying, “This perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.” As a Pharisee and a follower of Yeshua from Nazareth, Paul firmly believed in the physical resurrection of the dead. He looked forward to that day when our failing mortal flesh will be transformed into an immortal state.The laws of sacrifice allude to the transformation from mortality to immortality and from corruption to incorruptibility. In Leviticus 7:16-18, the LORD commands that the meats of the sacrificial service are not to remain beyond the third day:

But if the sacrifice of his offering is a votive or a freewill offering, it shall be eaten on the day that he offers his sacrifice, and on the next day what is left of it may be eaten; but what is left over from the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burned with fire. (Leviticus 7:16-17)

A person who offered a peace offering needed to eat the meat of the sacrifice within two days. One who ate of a sacrifice from the altar on the third day or later invalidated the sacrifice. Eating of the peace offering on the third day incurred the penalty of excision. The person was to be “cut off.” Three days after the slaughter, the meat began to turn rancid. As an earthly reflection of the heavenly dwelling place of God, the Sanctuary naturally shuns death and mortal corruption.

Though the sacrificial system requires the death of the sacrifice, it avoids the decomposition of the sacrificial meats. Better that the meat be burned than decompose. The same striving toward incorruptibility explains why all the sacrifices were salted, as Leviticus 2:13 says, “With all your offerings you shall offer salt.” Salt functioned as a preservative. The same striving toward incorruptibility explains why the construction of the Tabernacle used only the resinous shittim wood. Like cedar wood, shittim resisted decay.

The Tabernacle and its services symbolize immortality. The sacrifices and the Tabernacle worship point toward life, the imperishable world, and the worship of the Immortal One.

The peace offerings allude to the Master’s resurrection on the third day. The Master rose on the third day, as Scripture says of Him, “You will not abandon my soul to Hades, nor allow your Holy One to undergo decay.” The mortal body of Yeshua did not undergo decay. In this regard, the worship system of the Tabernacle foreshadows our transformation in Messiah. Through the resurrection in Messiah, human bodies will be changed from corruptible to incorruptible: “He will revive us after two days; He will raise us up on the third day, that we may live before Him” (Hosea 6:2). We will pass from the mortal to the immortal:

For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “Death is swallowed up in victory. O Death, where is your victory? O Death, where is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:53-55) (Click to Source)

Your Daily Readings – Verse of the Day – Mark 15:16 – 20 – The Scriptures by Institute For Scripture Research – 2009 Edition – April 6, 2020

Mark 15

Mark 15:1 And immediately, in the morning, the chief priests had a council meeting with the elders and scribes and all the council. Having bound יהושע (Yahshua, Jesus) , they led Him away, and delivered Him to Pilate.
Mark 15:2 And Pilate asked Him, “Are You the Sovereign of the Yehuḏim?” And He answering, said to him, “You say it.”
Mark 15:3 And the chief priests accused Him of much, but He made no answer.
Mark 15:4 And Pilate again asked Him, saying, “Have You no answer? See how much they witness against You!”
Mark 15:5 But יהושע (Yahshua, Jesus) still gave no answer, so that Pilate marvelled.

Mark 15:35 And some of those standing by, when they heard it, said, “See, He is calling for Ěliyahu!”

Mark 15:44 But Pilate wondered whether He was already dead, so summoning the captain, he asked him if He was already dead.
Mark 15:45 And when he learned this from the captain, he gave the body to Yosĕph.

Revised Biblical Names of Elohim – God, Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh By Bill Perkins

March 10, 2019

Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh.

Can I give such a gift as this,

To the Son of Yahweh – God

Born in Bethlehem?

Wise men from the East

Came bearing their gifts,

Searching for the One born King of the Jews.

They spread their valuable presents of

Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh,

Before the Child and worshipped the One named Immanuel (Yahweh – God with Us).

Then I came to the realization,

That no gift I could give Him,

Would compare to the gifts that

Yahshua – Jesus gave to mankind.

Free Salvation, Forgiveness of our Sins, and Eternal Life

in Heaven with Him for Eternity.

There will be a time in the Future,

That every tear will be wiped from our eyes.

A time will come,

When there will no longer

Be any sorrow, suffering, or pain.

These are the gifts Yahshua – Jesus gives to you and me.

They compare better than Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh.

Tucker Carlson: The WHO Helped China Cover-Up COVID-19

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,
Tucker Carlson exposed during a powerful monologue last night how the World Health Organization helped China cover-up the severity of coronavirus and how the U.S. media turned a blind eye.

The Fox News host noted how World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom “got his job with Chinese support after he covered up cholera outbreaks in his home country” of Egypt.

Tedros has denied the allegation, which centered around claims he had downplayed cholera epidemics in Ethiopia in 2006, 2009 and 2011 by passing them off as “acute watery diarrhea,” a symptom of cholera.

The United Nations later said that more lives could have been saved if the epidemic had been accurately labeled as cholera.

Carlson then accused Adhanom of setting the standard for corruption within the WHO by congratulating China for its “speedy” response to coronavirus in late January despite widespread evidence that China covered up the outbreak for over a month, lied about its severity and then silenced whistleblowers who tried to warn the world.

“Everything you just heard him say there was a lie,” said Carlson, highlighting an Australian 60 Minutes piece which features an expert explaining how China knew human to human transmission of COVID-19 had happened back in December.

Indeed, as we previously highlighted, on January 14th, the WHO was amplifying Chinese fake news that no human to human transmission of coronavirus had occurred.

Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China🇨🇳.

“So the World Health Organization’s leadership tells you that China ‘set the standard’ for the response to the outbreak, apparently that standard includes disappearing doctors who tell the truth about it,” said the Fox News host.

Ai Fen, a doctor at the head of emergency at Wuhan central hospital, asserted that Beijing stopped her from warning the world and subsequently disappeared with her whereabouts being completely unknown.

Your Daily Readings – Verse of the Day – John 12:13 – Restored Name King James Version – April 1, 2020

John 12

Then Yahushua six days before the Passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.
Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Yahushua, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him,
Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
Then said Yahushua, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.
For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.
Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Yahushua’s sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.
But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;
Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Yahushua.
On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Yahushua was coming to Jerusalem,
Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of Yahushua.
And Yahushua, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,
Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass’s colt.
These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Yahushua was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.
The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.
For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.
The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.
And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast:
The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Yahushua.
Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Yahushua.
And Yahushua answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.
The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.
Yahushua answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.
Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
This he said, signifying what death he should die.
The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that the Messiah abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?
Then Yahushua said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Yahushua, and departed, and did hide himself from them.
But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
That the saying of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, יהוה (Yahweh) , who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of יהוה (Yahweh) been revealed?
Therefore they could not believe, because that Isaiah said again,
He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
These things said Isaiah, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.
Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of יהוה (Yahweh) .
Yahushua cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.
And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.
I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
