Good morning, blog readers, from sunny and warm (32 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk in the dark, I did not scare any humans today, but did scare a deer back into the woods!
Wow! Wow! Wow! What is going on in and near New Zealand? Over the last two days, the northern island has experienced two “major” (7.3, 7.4) earthquakes which were followed by a “great” (8.1) quake which has since been followed by seven “strong” (6.1. 6.3, 6.2, 6.3, 6.1, 6.2. 6.1) quakes and an additional, by my count, 107 other aftershocks! Lots of “birthpains” over there! Stay tuned!
Here’s an interesting headline from Cindy Olmstead of Forbes: “Fauci Says Military Vaccine Refusers Are ‘Part of the Problem.'”
In the article, Cindy writes: “A high number of military personnel are declining to take a COVID-19 vaccine and, in response, Dr. Anthony Fauci is calling them out for being ‘part of the problem’ in efforts to stop the virus’ spread.”
According to Forbes, Fauci believes the military should be part of the solution to the outbreak by stepping to the plate and getting their vaccines, along with masking and social distancing. ‘In reality, like it or not, when you refuse the vaccine you’re propagating this outbreak,’ Fauci said.”
Okay, then, I guess I’m part of the problem too because I also refuse to get the vaccine based on the adverse reactions I have had to a previous vaccine and numerous medications.
So, in the meantime, I will wear a mask when it is required and practice some social distancing and trust God to see me through this difficult (and maybe prophetic), time, going about His work to reach the lost for Christ and build up the body of Christ, the church, that is, all who have been saved solely by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ, His death, burial and resurrection and not by works (Ephesians 2:8, 9; I Corinthians 15:1-4) like baptism, confirmation, the sacraments, prayer and giving money to the church, as some are wrongly taught. To God be the glory! Blessings, Doug (3/6/21)
