How is Everyone Doing ?
« on: March 23, 2020, 04:34:44 AM »

I just wanted to check in and see how the BT family is during our time of  distancing ourselves from others . Iím praying that God is giving you Peace .  I have to admit at times peace wavers  for me , but Iím blessed in so many ways .  My husband worked from home even before this happened.  We have enough food , our home is warm , and I read to my grandchildren  most days over Alexa . But we canít go see them and my oldest daughters family lives outside of Seattle .
This feels like a pestilence from Revelations -  weather it is or not , it is in the hands of God .
  Praying you all are safe and well. ❣️

For me is quite tough going as had car accident in December and my wife died. I am still injured and waiting for another operation which is getting delayed now because of the virus. The court case against the other driver is also delayed now. Any negative news makes it hard on my mental condition. I feel like everything got much harder after the accident. I have no peace and full of uncertainty about the future. Is difficult also when I need people in my life but now get told I need to stay away. Just hoping everything gets better soon.

Iíve noticed that I have changed in many ways since Bible Truths and the forum and one of them is living life much too seriously.

Another one is learning to rest in God and truly trust Him.

I'm still a work in progress.

We're in Michigan and we're  starting a stay at home order. My husband works at a grocery store so he can still work, I'm very thankful for that.  I pray that staying home for many states will help with stopping this virus. Or slow it down.

  I had 3operations to get bloodflow thru my artery in my leg. I found out on #2 I don't do well on morphine and had 2 stents put in. After the operation my artery collapsed within 48hrs. Surgeon blamed me for not taking Plavix. My wife and I convinced I was taking meds on time. He said if I was indeed taking plavix on time, I was in the 10% "lucky ones" that Plavix don't work  on. So #3 was scheduled (baloon) to re-open artery and I thnk it was successful, follow up next month. Now I'm one of the at risk citizens(7o yrs old, almost 50 yrs as a type 1 diabetic) so I don't go anywhere crowded. Good thing I love being around my wife of 46 yrs. Prayers for all in tougher straits than I.

Me and my house are doing ok so far, thank the LORD. Praying for one another is the best remedy always especially during these trying times. Our 46 year old daughter insisted that we do the online grocery ordering and side door pickup thing so my wife did that and it went pretty well. Even shopping on line doesn't mean you get everything you ordered, such as paper towels and toilet tissue.

In all things give thanks unto GOD the Father and our LORD and savior Jesus Christ.

In these recent uncertain and troubling times. I am reminded of what relying on God in all things really means. It can transform how you perceive and react to situations.  I've had plenty of practice with social distancing over the past few years, while caring for my mama who will soon be 92.  This situation has not altered my life in a negative way, as it has many others.

I feel blessed to have this time with my beautiful mama, and the ability to shop online for many things, as well as the grocery pick up service which is a great option.

I'm mostly feeling grateful for God's mercy and grace in my life, and the many blessings I've been given, especially my BT family. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Wanda,

Your sincere encouragement is appreciated.
Even in tough times we have the assurance that in the end we win and the prize is amazing.
please give Mother a hug from me, bob

1Co 15:54  So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 
1Co 15:55  O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 
1Co 15:56  The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

1 John 4:14

And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the son
to be THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD.

1 Tim.2:4

For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God Our Savior, who
WILL HAVE ALL MEN TO BE SAVED and to come unto the knowledge
of the truth.

Things currently are not as locked down as what I've seen on the news in more populated areas.  I have little concern for myself, but working at home is not an option and people are coming and going here at work all day so I don't want to bring anything home (including more worry) to my mother. Certain changes at work are stressful but they would be in the absence of Covid-19 too.  Anyway, that's mostly why I've been absent more than usual.

All this will pass, and the Lord is preparing a place for every last stinking one of us   Here or there, whether we live or die,, we're with Him.  Let's love one another while we're here.

It can be overwhelming and my heart goes out to those who are in dire difficulties because of job losses, social isolation and the economy.  Remembering those in prayer who are on the front lines and those that have to work and put themselves at risk.

Reading and rereading Psalm 91 brings me a lot of comfort. 

God is in control and this virus, to me, is a huge test of faith in that we are to rely on Him and trust Him in ALL  cirumstances.  I'm sure these circumstances are really challenging a lot of people in their faith. 

Praying for all saints that we will soon see some light and to hold fast and for His guidance; that our faith not be just lip service.

Rhys, I don't mean to sound glib but time does heal; I lost my husband 2 years ago today and have been in a semi isolation during that time as no close family or friends to visit me on a regular basis; He did give me one great friend who kept in contact with me, long distance, once a week.  Thank God for the faith and friend He gave me as it kept me out of depression even tho it made me do a lot of self reflection of my life/character etc; it also made me speak to Him more often and read His word be it the bible, Ray's material etc.  Rhys that/His strength is in you!! 

May God's blessings be on you all. 

Diane

My daughter got laid off yesterday and has only five days to get out of her home so her
landlord can move in .She has a husband who doesnít work and two seven year old twins.
The government package wonít be available for ten days apparently and she is experiencing
much anxiety as many are. Joblessness abounds. People are panicking, and this virus is spreading
like wildfire. Many are not adhering to the stay at home rules so they have begun arresting people.
I watched in horror as a leading Premier of a big province stated regarding the hoarding of food.
And I quote ď there is a special place in hell for those who do such thingsĒ .
After reading again this morning the Origins of eternal punishment, I have a better understanding of Christian
doctrine in the bigger scheme of things . Itís evil and disgusting blasphemy.

From Rays teaching

God has sternly warned in Deut.12:30-31

We at BT are blessed to know that

There is always salvation on the other side of judgement.
God is good and God is wise, and God is powerful and God is Love,
and God is enlarging His family with billions of sons and daughters
who will truly be for the first time in history, purged and purified and
finally molded into the desire of Gods heart from the beginning of time
when He declared ď let us be making humanity ,,,,, in our image.

Meanwhile in South Africa,the country goes on a lockdown beginning of tomorrow.

Tough times lie ahead as winter is also around the corner.

What will happen will happen according to His.

Peace to you all according to His will.

  I was so glad to hear from so many! Don't you just wish in a time like this we could all be together? We would put our arms around Rhys and Tim, and have big dinners and study together and laugh  (while social distancing of course ).  And one day we'll do just that ( without the distancing ).
  This all feels to me like a pestilence we've been told to look out for, and I feel like we will be seeing more of this. 
  I'm trying to make the most of this time.   It's not what I would have wanted, but it does present an opportunity for quiet, for study, for doing the things we need to do at home, for health, for kindness and for thinking of others before ourselves.  I feel unsettled but not unrooted .
 May God continue to be with you all, because the days are getting shorter.  Be well.

That's what I'm talking about Dave. My wife has been a bit worried lately because the whole world is telling us to be scared, so I told her about how Jesus comforted those that were crying because their child had died, then Jesus telling them the child was only asleep and not dead, and then commanding her to come alive again. I think telling my wife about that helped. Jesus will make us whole again, not just physically, but especially spiritually.

Covid-19 may be real, but I think it's getting blown way out of proportion. More people die from the common flu (among other illnesses) than they do from this new over hyped virus. The person that modeled the virus and then predicted that the virus would kill 500k people in the UK is now changing his tune to say the new estimate is less than 20k people dead in the UK from covid-19. However, main stream media is still using the old data from the previous model, wonder why.

Don't know how reliable dailywire.com is, but for what it's worth, check this out. https://www.dailywire.com/news/epidemiologist-behind-highly-cited-coronavirus-model-admits-he-was-wrong-drastically-revises-model

Sadly, the person behind the covid-19 model is already crediting the quarantine efforts to his new less drastic model. This quarantine will set a new precedent for future biological emergencies. 

Just like with the flu, our elderly and those that are immunocompromised are probably more susceptible to this. So as always keep them safe.

BTW, I'm doing ok octoberose, thanks for asking. Lets all remember each other in prayer. God be with us all.
