In several areas, medical specialists dealing with the Ebola virus seem to contradict themselves. Are respirators necessary parts of protective gear for medical personnel treating Ebola patients? Can Ebola travel airborne through cough’s or sneezes? Do all persons with this disease display the same early symptoms––i.e. high fever––before the virus is transferrable?, etc., etc. etc.
For instance, newly published studies say 21 days of isolation after exposure to Ebola may not be long enough. According to Dr. Charles N. Haas, a microbiology threat researcher at Drexel University, who recently published a paper in the Journal ‘PLOS Current Outbreaks’:
“There is no quarantine time that will provide absolute assurance of no residual risk from contagion. While the 21-day quarantine value, currently used, may have arisen from reasonable interpretation of early outbreak data, this work suggests reconsideration is in order and that 21 days might not be sufficiently protective of public health.” Haas adds the 21 days “. . . is based on potentially flawed data from the 1976 Ebola outbreak in Zaire.”
He points out that while symptoms typically start appearing after nine days, the World Health Organization (WHO) has records of persons catching the disease from someone 30 days after the sick person was diagnosed. “Even if you go out to a 30-day time, it only gives you a risk of about eight in 1,000 that someone would still progress to symptoms after that period,” he insists.
In his article, ‘New Ebola Study Supports WHO Findings: A 21-Day Quarantine is Not Long Enough,’ Dave Hodges of thecommonsenseshow.com quotes Mike Adams of Natural News:
“A jaw-dropping report released by the World Health Organization on October 14, 2014 reveals that 1 in 20 Ebola infections has an incubation period longer than the 21 days which has been repeatedly claimed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.” The actual WHO Report states: “95% of confirmed cases have an incubation period in the range of 1 to 21 days; 98% have an incubation period that falls within the 1 to 42 day interval.”
So why does the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) insists 21 days is enough? And why do ‘experienced’ medical personnel––such as Dr. Craig Spencer, who roamed in New York before he was officially tagged a Ebola patient, or Nurse Kaci Hickox, who refuses to be quarantined––insists that they know best?
In dealing with leprosy, Leviticus, chapter 13, of wholesale Christian Bibles, priests, who served as medical doctors as well, had a person suspected of having the disease remain quarantined for several periods of seven days each:
“And the priest shall look on him the seventh day: and, behold, if the plague in his sight be at a stay, and the plague spread not in the skin; then the priest shall shut him up seven days more (verse 5). . . . And the priest shall look upon the plague, and shut up it that hath the plague seven days (verse 50) . . .”
All of which may match the U.S. medical standard of 21 day isolation or a period of three weeks, or three seven day periods. However, a full reading of the chapter indicates that indeed the time period may be much longer. One more question: Why do many Christians still trust doctors more than they trust God?
Rites of evil increase in these last days. Supposedly well-meaning Christians become swept-up in bewildering satanic activity. Pastors, parents, and prayer warriors must be on alert during the coming Satanic high feast day of Halloween.
Ask police departments in any small town or large city about Halloween! Those who will admit it know the truth. For instance, a PDF on ‘Halloween Sex Offender Laws’ says: “ . . . a growing number of states that have enacted laws restricting the activities of sex offenders on Halloween. . . restrictions imposed on sex offenders during Halloween hours generally range from “no passing out candy” to “no driving after dark” . . . the laws are primarily meant to protect children from potential threats by former sex offenders and child predators on Halloween.”
Or ask vigilant news reporters like Haley Smith who writes: “Police and parents are . . . more careful because of the latest suspicious activity . . . where there have been two reported attempts of a stranger trying get kids into the car. Two kids said a woman tried to get them into her car while they were walking . . . another reason to be concerned—a Safe Kids report shows twice as many children are hit and killed on the roads on Halloween than on any other day of the year.”
Unfortunately, the most gut-wrenching horror stories about Halloween are from women and girls forced to breed babies in hidden underground Satanic holds so their infant off-spring can be used for human sacrifice during Halloween season. As infowars.com recites the testimony of one girl in ‘The Dark Side Of Halloween: The Kind Of Stuff That Real Life Nightmares Are Made Of’:
“My father worked in the aerospace industry. My mother worked for a doctor. On the outside just looked normal, but nobody knew what was going on behind closed doors. My father was actually a Satanic high priest, so he did all kinds of evil things. He sexually assaulted me, took me to satanic rituals. My father actually used me as a baby breeder, which means I was impregnated so the Satanists would have a baby to sacrifice to the devil in their Satanic rituals. As soon as I was able to have a baby, I was pregnant.”
So why do ‘born again’ Christians want to do anything during Halloween season but pray? Ever since the 1950s and 1960s when most pastors in America substituted ‘Bible Study’ for regular Wednesday Night Prayer Services, evil has run roughshod over this nation: 1) Prayer was taken out of schools in 1962;
2) Halloween advanced to become the largest commercial spending season in America, second only to Christmas; 3) The numbers of kidnapped, missing and murdered children has mushroomed; 4) Satanism, demon cult worship, Satanic rock music, and horror films flood movie houses and television sets; and
5) Even some churches, claiming The Name of Jesus, began celebrating Halloween with ghoulish decorations, and evening parties, including masked costumes and ‘sweet’ treats. Again, the urgent question: “Why are Christian churches before and during Halloween night doing anything but praying?”
God’s Word in all used Christian Bibles makes absolutely clear: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them (Ephesians 5: 11).” One definition of ‘worship’ is “to feel an adoring reverence or regard.” So, again: why are ‘Christians’ showing such regard for Satan’s holiday? Only the prayer power of interceding Christians can break such a Satanic hold.
October is often a frightening month. It ends with Halloween, the highest Satanic witchcraft feast day of the year in which those dedicated to evil celebrate the devil, and their ghoulish accomplishments of sin and death. Yet some churches, claiming The Name of Christ Jesus attempt to make it a day of childish “fun.”
Stock markets dread every October. This month’s 400 point market fall was no different. Pundits and politicians fearfully look for different October surprises as well. They concluded the 2014 ‘surprise’ is the Ebola scare, but now terrorists’ attacks in Canada displaced that ‘old’ fear. And the month has nine days to go.
As the planet races towards this 14th year of the last century of man’s rule, October surprises multiply as Satan knows his time on earth is very limited. Thus, when he travels around the world to visit thousands of witchcraft burning sights in back woods and underground caverns, as he rewards human sacrifices, he will advance those followers proven to be the most capable disciples of evil.
Satanists and the various devils they serve are cowards, generally afraid to attack knowledgeable Christians who lean on God’s Holy Spirit for knowledge and insight into the spirit world. Thus, those serving the evil one usually attack and sacrifice children, either immediately on Halloween night, or else seducing them through drugs, sex or ignorance into a lifetime of almost unescapable misery.
Pastor Pat Holliday’s study on www.demonbuster.com explains: “October 31 is the most important day in the satanic year. [It is known as the devil’s birthday.] It marks the Celtic new year. It was the end of the growing season.
“It became a festival of death. On this day, the god of the Celtics was to have called up the spirits of the wicked dead who had died during the past year. At the same time, other evil spirits arose and went about the countryside harassing the people. On October 31, the Celtics expected to be harassed by ghosts, evil spirits and demons; and it was no fun and games to them.”
The Restored Church of God says: “ . . . today’s Halloween customs (black cats, parades, dressing up as ghouls and witches, parties, bonfires, tricks and mischievous pranks)—which most people take for granted—point directly back to the Vigil of Samhain, the false lord of the dead, pagan Roman holidays filled with immoral revelries, and the Catholic Church’s Hallowmas.
“In light of its historical pagan origin, can we honestly view Halloween as merely an innocent childhood indulgence? Is this the kind of tradition we want to pass on to our children?” Good question that many pastors need to ask themselves.
eaglecreekobservatory.org declares in ‘The History of Halloween’ that it is “ . . . a pagan religious holiday not a Christian day. Tom Sanguinet, former high priest in the Celtic tradition of Wicca (witchcraft) says: “The modern holiday we call Halloween has its origin closest to November 1, the witches’ New Year.
“It was a time when the ‘spirits’ (devils) were supposed to be at their peak power revisiting the earth. Planet. . . Halloween is purely and absolutely evil, and there is nothing we ever, have ever or will ever do to make it acceptable to the Lord Jesus.” This October 31, Satan continues these deceptions on mankind.
The LORD Jesus instructs believers in wholesale Christian Bibles: “For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: . . . And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them (Ephesians 5: 8, 11).” Its time to face the truth about Halloween!
Repriestly: Ok John what’s wrong?
John: Well, before she went on vacation, Jael told us to cover the story on the U.N. Climate summit and the various marches around the world warning about Global Warming. But now nobody wants to do the story. Sarah Newsworthy told me to handle it as she was busy working with Mr. Butterman on the 35,000 walruses hopelessly stranded in Alaska, because of so much melted sea water.
Ally Feermeno said no one in Asia cares about that, and hung up the phone. Ida Wells said she could do an expose on the corporate conglomerates fighting against Global Warming, none of whom were mentioned at the U.N. meeting. And the kids scream that I must tell about all the animals Global Warming is killing.
Jim Seerfar said it had nothing to do with his work about space, unless I wanted to discuss more massive wastes of money, and Cecil Certifier said the whole U.N. thing was a show of insanity if I wanted him to write about that.
They just don’t want to do it. They say it is simply a matter of ‘too little–– too late.’ And they are angry that after this blog team has worked tirelessly for years to wake people up about Global Warming, governments have done so little. What am I to do? Jael will be back soon. She’ll be furious if we’ve done nothing.
Repriestly: Well John, it looks like you’ll have to write it yourself. So try!
John: O.K. here goes: John H, Cushman, Jr. says in ‘UN Climate Summit Achieves Successes, But Does It Really Matter?’: “At the end of his summit meeting . . ., UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon put out a list of accomplishments festooned with 46 bullet points, some of them marking concrete new pledges, others diaphanous phrases.” I looked that up. It means ‘ insubstantial.’
At the end he complains: “Unless the environmental movement provides the power to overcome the political resistance that for decades has hobbled U.S. negotiators at climate treaty talks, the demonstrators who thronged 50 blocks of midtown Manhattan might as well have stretched their legs on 310,000 treadmills.”
Mark Hertsgaard asks in ‘The People’s Climate March Was Huge, but Will It Change Everything?’ He pointed out that the Rockefeller Brothers Fund controlling that family’s wealth built by Standard Oil is totally divesting from fossil fuels, but that March leaders agreed it was only a first step, and many others must follow.
AFP News staff writers reveal in ‘UN Climate Fund Still Far Short of Goal’ that major nations have given little toward their pledge of $ 2.3 billion to help poor nations deal with ‘rising temperature disasters’. They quote Tim Gore from Oxfam:
“. . . the UN summit had offered “only a partial and piecemeal response. After four long years, the cash is starting to land in the Green Climate Fund, albeit at little more than a trickle.” They also report that world leaders are to meet next year in Paris to make ‘solid’ plans against Climate Change.
So Rev. anyway it looks like those main stream media writers agree with our motley crew––its all a matter of too-little and too-late. I told our gang I was going to tell you about their refusals and that said to ask you to pray for them.
Repriestly: And indeed I will John. Remember what wholesale Christian sweat shirts say: “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith (1 John 5: 4), and to overcome the world’s laziness about Global Warming we must increase our faith!
Not just Ebola virus! America and the world had best get ready for other attacks from old and new killer diseases assaulting the planet with no let-ups or vaccines in sight, including: Bird flues, West Nine Virus, Cyclospora, MERS, syphillis, measles, illnesses contracted in hospitals, i.e. drug-resistant superbug infections, Teen-striking virus EV-D68, etc. and the ever-looming Chikungunya.
While near-hysteria over possibilities of Ebola outbreak here seems to have wiped it off this nation’s emotional map, virus EV-D68 which centers its attacks on children and teens, continues to soar across this country.
Although the outbreak was first noticed last month in mid-western states, it has now spread throughout the nation and in Canada. At least four recent child-deaths are attributed to EV-D68, and children sickened from it multiplies.
CBS News reports last night: “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has confirmed nearly 600 cases of Enterovirus D68. Most victims are children, and the virus is in 43 states, plus Washington, D.C. The CDC has confirmed 594 cases of Enterovirus D68. It has been detected in specimens from five patients who died, including a 10-year-old girl in Rhode Island.”
Yet these cases have not garnered nearly the same attention as that of African-born Thomas Eric Duncan, who succumbed to death from the Ebola virus this morning in a Dallas hospital. Is that because exotic diseases from Africa appear more threatening than those home-grown in the U.S.?
David M. Morens, M.D., and Anthony S. Fauci, M.D. write in ‘Chikungunya at the Door—Déjà Vu All Over Again?’: “We now face a new threat posed by the unrelated chikungunya virus, which causes a disease clinically similar to dengue in a similar epidemiological pattern, which is transmitted by the same mosquito vectors, and for which we also lack vaccines and specific treatments.”
In ‘Chikungunya Virus in the Americas—What a Vector-borne Pathogen Can Do,’ J. Erin Staples, M.D., Ph.D., and Marc Fischer, M.D., M.P.H. add: “In December 2013, the first local transmission of chikungunya virus in the Western Hemisphere was reported, beginning with autochthonous cases in Saint Martin.
“Since then, local transmission has been reported in 31 countries . . . throughout the Americas, including. . . the United States and its territories (Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) . . . As of August 8, 2014, a total of 576,535 suspected and laboratory-confirmed chikungunya cases had been reported in the Americas, a case count that had nearly doubled over the previous month.
That is a half-million cases of this illness in the U.S. Why has national media concentrated on a disease from Africa when other viruses originate at home? Is it about politics? Or because media earlier ignored thousands of African victims? Is it because the medical industry won’t admit that with its billions of dollars in manpower, education and laboratories it is still not ready for major attacks?
For blog readers who claim Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior, a crucial question also looms: Who do you trust more for your healing and health: God or doctors? Don’t say both, they cannot be equal. Do you call on the church for prayer when sick? Does your church believe in God’s power to heal?
When under such attacks, God’s Word in wholesale Christian Bibles commands: “He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: keep the munition, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily (Nahum 2:1),” i.e. sickness and death is from Satan so man-up and pray!
Weather prognosticators seem to agree: Winter 2014-15 for most of the country will be colder and more snowy than normal. Some even predict the snowy season will start as early as mid-October. So time to prepare!
Andrew of the Weather Center, who reports to this blog daily, predicts: “The potential for a wintry storm in the October 10-15 period is being monitored, as well as its impacts on the new Lezak Recurring Cycle”––i.e. continuing for weeks, etc.
In one graphic he sees: “ . . . a storm system pushing north through the Midwest . . . dropping impressive rains over Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and parts of Michigan. However, the 850mb temps appear to be near to just below freezing over central Michigan, where we see a rather sharp cutoff in the precipitation shield.
“The 850mb level, located about 5,000 feet off the ground, being below freezing can indicate snow . . . The temperature profiles for the atmosphere in general . . . where snow appears the most “likely” to occur . . . the backside of this storm could drag down some cold air, which might allow for some flakes to fly in parts of the North/Central US.”
In ‘Chicago Winter Forecast Could Be Wild In 2014-15’, John Dodge warns: “Meteorologists don’t take much stock in predictions from the Old Farmer’s Almanac, which is calling for a frigid winter season, but there are more scientific signs that Chicago would see a wild one in 2014-15.
“The 2013-14 winter went down as one of the worst in Chicago’s history, both in terms of the amount of snow and wicked cold.” Like most T.V. broadcasters, he doesn’t admit global warming contributes to such weather, but cites warmer temperatures from El Nino, which is, in effect, the same thing.
Moreover, Dodge reminds his audience of last winter’s term ‘Polar Vortex.’
As he says, ‘professional weathermen’ don’t ‘believe’ in Farmer’s Almanac. But that tried and true old reliable book says the same thing in its 2015 edition: “ . . . the winter of 2014–15 will see below-normal temperatures for about three-quarters of the nation. A large zone of very cold temperatures will be found from east of the Continental Divide east to the Appalachians.
“The most frigid temperatures will be found from the Northern Plains into the Great Lakes. The coldest outbreak of the season will come during the final week of January into the beginning of February, when frigid arctic air drops temperatures across the Northern Plains to perhaps 40 below zero. As the frigid air blows across the Great Lakes, snow showers and squalls will drop heavy amounts of snow to the lee of the Lakes.
“No region will see prolonged spells of above-normal temperatures . . .
Over the eastern third of the country, we are expecting an active storm track with a number of storms delivering copious amounts of snow and rain. . . . The Central and Southern Plains are expected to receive above-average precipitation.”
So remember the drills for house, car and clothing, as well as what Apostle Paul begs: “Do thy diligence to come before winter . . . (2 Timothy 4: 21),” i.e. prepare each soul for salvation through The LORD Jesus Christ as well.
Of course, strong Christians, like David’s warriors, can win great battles this winter: “ . . . he went down also and slew a lion in the midst of a pit in time of snow (2 Samuel 23: 20).” Now that’s a verse for plus-sized Christian sweatshirts!
Every time staff workers sit down to mark up the story on Ebola in the U.S., new questions emerge: 1) Why shifting numbers on number of U.S. patients with the disease; 2) Causes for mistakes in the most recent case in a Dallas hospital; 3) Just who is ‘patient zero’ in U. S.; 4) Why air traffic not stopped from Liberia?; 5) Mainstream media insisting Dallas is ‘first’ case?; 6) Is this a scripted result?, etc.
At least 50 or so of the over 300 Ebola internet and newspaper stories on file at this blog site, state or imply that Thomas Eric Duncan is the first person bringing the Ebola virus to this country from Liberia. But that is simply not true.
Only Susan Heavey of Reuters states plainly in yahoo.com’s ‘Factbox: U.S. Faces Sixth Case of Ebola’: “The United States has seen six cases of the Ebola virus in recent weeks affecting five Americans and a Liberian. Two of the cases surfaced this week, raising concerns about wider spread of the disease, which has killed at least 3,439 people in the current outbreak in West Africa.”
One of the cases she mentions is of course Mr. Duncan’s, but who are the others, and why have they not received as much attention? They include: “An unnamed American who contracted Ebola in West Africa being treated at . . . at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. There have been few. . . details made public about the patient, who returned to the United States by air ambulance on Sept. 9.
And why no public details? Also, “About the same time, the World Health Organization said one of its doctors tested positive for Ebola at a treatment center in Sierra Leone . . . and WHO has not identified the physician.? Again unknown!
While the cases of physician Kent Brantly and nurse Nancy Writebol, treated at Emory, were rather publicized, the case of Dr. Rick Sacra from Boston was not. He was treated for three weeks at Nebraska Medical Center.
Heavey adds: “Additionally, an American doctor remains under observation at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, has not been confirmed to have the disease. The physician was exposed while volunteering in Sierra Leone. . . An NIH spokeswoman on Friday declined to give any further updates on the case, citing privacy reasons. The patient was admitted on Sunday [September 28th]. If kept for 21 days, the patient would be released @ Oct. 19.”
Heavey then blithely says: “Another patient was also isolated in Hawaii.” So why has the man in Dallas received so much attention and the media has so well guarded most of the others? Have dozens of people around them been tested and watched? Further, with all of this secrecy can officials please explain:
“Why are airlines flying planes out of Liberia where thousands are sick and dying with Ebola? How can Liberian officials sue Duncan saying he lied about being sick, when they know his hometown overflows with Ebola victims? So why fly anyone out of there? Can officials and airlines answer! Is this about profits?
Is it unreasonable to suggest that these inconsistencies seem to come from a ‘scripted plan’since: 1) U.S. health services hold the patten on Ebola, and stocks of companies testing for Ebola vaccines soaring up 200%; 2) Nurses across the country scream their hospitals are not prepared for Ebola; while 3) U.S. military is equipped with anti-Ebola ‘medication,’ and protective gear?
More in future blogs. This site, as well as worldscollide-culture-Christianity-endoftime.com, begs its readers to triple-down on prayers in these last days. Maybe this Ebola ‘outbreak’ will encourage them to do so. As wholesale Christian sweatshirts implore: “But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer (1 Peter 4: 7).”
