*THERE IS MORE SAID IN THE PODCAST AUDIO THAN IN THE NOTES BELOW
Welcome to the How to Stay the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #33. My name is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International.
Numbers 11:33 says, “And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the LORD smote the people with a very great plague.”
The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “After the 70 had been selected and properly validated the Lord sent a strong wind from the sea that blew uncounted numbers of quail across the camp. The normal flight pattern of these quail to this day is northeasterly, from the interior of Africa. The wind must have been from the southeast, a most unusual phenomenon, and drove the birds northwest across the Sinai. Moreover, the Lord caused them to fly about three feet above the ground so the people could easily capture them or club them to the ground. This seems much better than the commonly held impression that the quail were piled up in a layer three feet thick a day’s walk in every direction from the camp. The problems in such a scenario are obvious. For two days and a night the overflight continued till every gatherer had accumulated at least 10 homers of quail. Soon after the people began their orgy of lustful gluttony the Lord unleashed His wrath against them and sent a severe plague that killed many of them. The reason for this is clear in the statement that the place where this happened was named Kibroth Hattaavah because there they buried the people who had craved other food. Their sin was, in effect, a rejection of the Lord and His bountiful provision in favor of an unbridled appetite. As Paul later said of the enemies of Christ, “Their god is their stomach”. No doubt terrified by their experience there, the people moved on to Hazeroth (possibly present-day ’Ain Khadra), just south of the Desert of Paran.”
2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Revelation 2:4-5 says, “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.”
Leonard Ravenhill said, “Sodom, which had no Bible, no preachers, no tracts, no prayer meetings, no churches, perished. How then will America and England be spared from the wrath of the Almighty, think you? We have millions of Bibles, scores of thousands of churches, endless preachers—and yet what sin!”
According to the AP the death toll from the coronavirus in America has crossed 50,000.
According to the Hill The economy will shrink at an annualized rate of 39.6 percent in the second quarter, according to the latest projections from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), its first to take into account the effects of the coronavirus plague.
According to NPR More than 190,000 people have died from the coronavirus globally, and case totals have reached over 2.7 million, as of Friday afternoon.
In a Popular Mechanics article, Expert Disaster Preppers Explain How to Ride Out the Coronavirus Plague, “Use common sense. If it’s dangerous, if it seems wrong, don’t do it. Like if you have to go outside during lockdown—for example, if you have to walk the dog. If the military stops by and asks you what you’re doing, don’t fight them, don’t argue with them.
Replenish canned goods frequently. Get as much as you can. Every time you go out, just get more canned goods.
Do business during the day. You’re less likely to run into problems with criminal elements. As police get sick or exposed to the virus, there will be less police on the streets.”
13 Benefits of Living and Traveling in an RV During the Coronavirus Plague
5. We can stay in campgrounds pretty much anywhere around the country. So far, we aren’t having trouble getting reservations anywhere. And there are thousands of RV parks and campgrounds, state parks, and city parks to choose from, when we’re ready for a change of scenery.
6. We can even camp off the grid, with our own power and water. Right now, we’re boondocking (also known as dry camping without hookups) in a dessert. We’ve been parked out here in solitude, in a location that is popular among RVers, especially in winter. Our power needs are provided by lithium batteries, solar panels and on-board generator. We have a large holding tank of fresh water on board, plus two waste holding tanks. By conserving our usage, we can easily stay in one place for 2-3 weeks at a time, without having to break camp or go anywhere.
7. We can keep connected with people via Facetime, Skype, social media and email. Whether it’s communicating with our family, friends, or our community, we are using technology to stay in touch with our loved ones and customers, just as we always have. And while we still love to meet up in person when we can, we’re embracing social distancing for the next few weeks at least. In the meantime, Facetime, Skype and Zoom are great for digital face to face connection.
If you want to move into a more traditional living situation, move into off-grid housing. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines off-grid as “not connected to or served by publicly or privately managed utilities (such as electricity, gas, or water)”
You can buy off-grid housing form Survival Realty. Survival Realty is an independent real estate marketplace for rural, off-grid and self-sufficient properties with hundreds of listings featuring solar powered homes, cabins and remote land adn many agents experienced in rural and off-grid living and relocation.
Proverbs 18:9 says “He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.”
Dave Ramsey said, “Have you ever asked yourself what kind of leader your team members want? If you want to lead, or you want to grow or hire leaders, they and you must have good character qualities. We all have some of these qualities and we all have some we can work on. The big deal here is to remember that the very things you want from a leader are the very things the people you are leading expect from you. You must intentionally become more of each of these every day to grow yourself and your business. And to the extent you’re not doing that, you’re failing as a leader.”
Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.
First, please understand that you are a sinner and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Please understand that because of your sins, you deserve punishment in hell. Romans 6:23 says “the wages of sin is death…” This is both physical death and spiritual death in hell.
But here is the good news. John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
The phrase “For God so loved the world” means that if you are in this world, God loves you no matter what you have done.
The next phrase, “that He gave His only begotten Son” refers to Jesus Christ. He is God’s son who suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins and for mine, and He was buried and rose again.
Our next phrase is “that whosoever believeth in Him”. The word “whosoever” means anybody at anytime. The phrase “believeth in Him” means to trust in Him, to depend upon Him, to rely on Him, or to have faith in Him for your salvation.
Our next phrase, “should not perish”, refers to eternal punishment in a place called hell.
And, lastly, the phrase “but have everlasting life” means to live eternally in Heaven with God.
The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Dear friend, if you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.
If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!
