I know this post is long and in-depth…..but it is what God showed me to share with you today.

This is what God has placed on my heart today to share with you. I have been up since 3:30am hearing from God! I love to listen to God speak to me. I love having such a close, personal relationship with God. I love the peace and comfort, the covering of the Holy Spirit, the love, the messages.

I am very sadden that some Churches here in New Mexico are closing up for fear of the coronavirus. This just does not sit well with my Spirit. The Church is what we need now, the body of Christ gathering together to pray to our Lord. I think people are smart enough that if they are not feeling good they will stay at home. I think we all are smart enough to wash our hands.I serve a very wise congregation that has many elderly people and they will make their own Godly decision whether to come or not.This is a time when the Church needs to lead and not retreat.Just my thoughts.More at FGGAM.ORG The Church is the hospital, we are to feed people spiritually, feed the souls, give people love and hope in Jesus and pray. We are not to have the spirit of fear.
I will be preaching on Sunday at the First Baptist Church in Reserve, NM! PTL!! My favorite day of the week is to share the love of JESUS!
We must not feed into the fear and anxiety.

Fear is crippling America in so many ways.

It’s absurd to suppose you can have the Spirit of Christ within you and not see, feel, and experience his presence. The Holy Spirit will produce holy living. Paul says in Galatians 5:22-23 that “the fruit [or evidence] of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” From Joni Eareckson Tada

Rather than viewing Scripture as a book that merely teaches us how to believe and how to act, Jesus shows us that everything is rooted in how we ought to love. By distilling all the doctrinal and behavioral truths of the Bible down to a simple two-part statement—love God and love each other—the Lord of the universe showed us that the dual boundaries of what we believe and how we behave are intended to be understood and experienced within the framework of deep, loving relationships with him and with one another.

Josh McDowell

Where is America? I hear no call for God’s people to pray. I have asked for people here at FGGAM to go into prayer for 30 days and pray against the virus and for unity in America, the end of hate.

What do you think?

On Sunday, mass prayer session will be held at the Western Wall in the to stop the COVID-19 epidemic. Report Here

My prayer is that America will come together as one. We are being destroyed by hate and division. Turn off the TV news and talk radio, it is adding to the fire. I have never seen such horrible journalism. Have we become so dumb we need to be told to wash our hands? In all my years in media, 40 plus, I have never seen such horrible TV and radio news. Even Christian TV has to take its share of responsibility allowing snake oil salesman Jim Baker on the air pushing his fake cure for the virus. I have never seen it in such bad shape. It is mostly “nothing noise” Soak in God, nothing noise, keep your eyes on Jesus! Help lead others down the path to a personal relationship with Jesus.  Love on people like Jesus tells us to.

In baseball, we always say to the hitter to keep his eye on the ball. If you do that well enough you will become a good hitter, Many here in America have taken their eye off of God and focus on things of man, leaving God out. This is why we are striking out so much.

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another:
just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
 
By this all people will know that you are my disciples,
if you have love for one another.
John 13:34-35

My life verse…..

“But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.” -Acts 20:24

This present America gets stranger to me everyday. I do not know much of it anymore. The hate has reached new highs. Hate destroys. Hate blinds one to the truth of God. Panic takes your eyes of God. I encourage you to read this long post, grab a cup of coffee and soak in God.

We continue to pray for the good health of all! Yesterday I went to the grocery store and all the toilet paper was sold out at the two Smiths I visited. I found some at our little neighborhood hardware store! So much of our society is in a panic. God is here for you. Keep your eyes on God and all of His promises. How would America react under a deeper crisis? It seems that America is not spiritually prepared, this is what happens when many have left the God…Panic, fear, irrational thinking. Times have been very much tougher in America. The Great Depression, World War II, and so on. Where is our Godly backbone?

I was talking with a couple yesterday in Smiths and the husband had served in Vietnam. We both were saying that the American people do not seem have much of a backbone. So much hate, not working to solve the problems we have, so divided. We both said this present America we live in, never would have never made it through the depression or WW II. So many Americans have walked away from God.

The Governor here in New Mexico said in her health emergency speech, that we should not go to Church! The Church is where we should be. The Church is the hospital for us all. The Church started the first hospitals in America. I pray that you are healthy enough to go to Church. I am sadden that the leaders of this nation are not calling for a month of prayer! Have we forgotten God in all our panic and all the hate that is going around?

Hate and division has blinded many in America. No politician has ever healed anything!! JESUS HEALS!

The state of New Mexico has ordered all Public Schools closed.

Albuquerque Journal Report

Look at our history:

AMERICAN MINUTE WITH BILL FEDERER:

WHO invented HOSPITALS?-The History of HEALTHCARE

“I t is not just about sterilization, abortifacients, and chemical contraception… It’s about religious freedom, the sacred right, protected by our constitution…”

– Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, October 29, 2012, responding to the President’s HHS healthcare mandates.

Cardinal Dolan, as President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), 2010-2013, continued:

“The President announced…the choking mandates from HHS would remain – a shock to me, since he had personally assured me that he would do nothing to impede the good work of the Church…that he considered the protection of conscience a sacred duty…

…There was still no resolution about the handcuffs placed upon… Catholic charitable agencies…just because they will not refer victims of human trafficking, immigrants and refugees, and the hungry of the world, for abortions, sterilization, or contraception.”

The Catholic Church is the oldest institution in the Western World and the originator of ‘hospitals’.

Though some ancient cultures had superstitious medical practices, they were primarily for the royalty and wealthy.

Healthcare for the poor traces its roots to Christianity.

Just as the Syrian Church did in the East, the Catholic Church in the West pioneered putting into practice the words of Jesus: “I was sick and you visited me,” and “Whatever you have done to the least of my brethren, you have done unto me.”

In the 4th century, under the ministry of St. Jerome, a wealthy Christian widow named St. Fabiola gave money to build a hospital for the poor in Rome and cared for the sick herself.

Around the same time, St. Basil distributed food to the poor of Caesarea, then built a poorhouse, hospice, and hospital.

In 325 AD, the Council of Nicea directed that every city having a cathedral should also have a hospital, as people traveling on pilgrimages would often arrive ill.

The word “hosp” is Latin for “traveler,” the root word of hospital, hospitality, host, hostel and hotel.

Hospitals were staffed by religious orders.

In the 6th century, the Benedictine Order had every monastery establish an infirmary.

When Muslim warriors invaded Christian Syria in 634 AD and then conquered Byzantine Christian Jerusalem in 638 AD, the hospitals needed to be defended, giving rise to the order of Knights of Hospitallers.

As education was pioneered in the east by the Syrian Church, the Catholic Church was responsible for founding the first universities.

The Benedictine Monastery in Salerno, Italy, founded the oldest and most famous medical school.

Charlemagne decreed that the hospitals which had fallen into disrepair should be restored.

In the 1300’s, the Bubonic Plague, or Black Death, ravaged Europe killing 75 million people.

Crops were left standing in fields as there was no one to harvest them.

With often no one to bury the dead, an order of Catholic men called ‘Alexian Brothers’ collected the bodies and gave them a Christian burial.

They also ministered to the dying who were banished from the cities.

More Catholic religious orders formed to care for the sick, nurse the ill, change bed pans, and start leper colonies, such as:

Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul (founded 1633);

Sisters of St. Joseph (founded 1650);

Sisters of Mercy (founded 1827);

Little Sisters of the Poor (founded 1839);

Sisters of Providence (founded 1843);

Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine (founded 1851);

Fr. Damien’s colony for lepers in Hawaii (founded 1864);

Sisters of St. Mary (founded 1872);

Sisters of the Little Company of Mary (founded 1877),

Sisters of the Sorrowful Mother (founded 1883);

The nuns’ habit developed into the nurses’ outfit with its distinctive cap.

Some Catholic religious orders also collected alms and sailed to North Africa to ransom Europeans who had been kidnapped into Muslim slavery.

One of the oldest hospitals in Europe was the Hôtel-Dieu in Paris, founded in 660AD.

It was staffed from about 1217 on by Sisters who followed the Rule of St. Augustine.

In 1633, the Sisters of Charity began helping at the Hotel-Dieu of Paris.

They then established hospitals for the poor throughout France.

In that day, the wealthy had doctors visit them at their homes.

By 1789, there were 6,000 Sisters of Charity running 426 hospitals in France, and more in countries across Europe, such as Poland, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, and Silesia.

During the atheistic French Revolution’s Reign of Terror, mobs broke into the Sisters of Charity’s mother house.

The nuns refused to deny their faith and embrace the new secular order so the government shot them in front of firing squads and beheaded them with the guillotine.

In 1793, France’s new anti-Christian government attempted to disband the order.

The order survived, and in the 19th century spread healthcare for the poor across the world, to such countries as: Portugal, Hungary, England, Scotland, Ireland, North and South America, Turkey, Syria, Egypt, Persia, Abyssinia, China and Jerusalem.

American Minute-Notable Events of American Significance Remembered on the Date They Occurred

In 1809, Mother Elizabeth Ann Seton brought the Sisters of Charity of the United States.

In 1830, Sisters of Charity established the first hospital west of the Mississippi River in St. Louis, Missouri.

At the request of President Abraham Lincoln, over 200 Sisters of Charity served during the Civil War on battlefields and in military hospitals.

Over 250 Sisters of Charity served during the Spanish-American War of 1898, where diarrhea, dysentery, typhoid fever, and malaria killed more soldiers than combat.

Beginning with the Industrial Revolution, hospitals were also founded by Protestant Christian denominations, most notably Seventh Day Adventists, Baptists, Episcopalians, Lutherans, Methodists and Presbyterians.

Whereas Catholic healthcare began by focusing more on the hereafter, being motivated to prepare a person’s soul for death and meeting God, Protestant healthcare focused more on the here and now, being motivated to clean up the slums in crowded cities and send medical missionaries to undeveloped countries.


Wealthy individuals donated and provided in their wills to continue these religious ministries of charity.

Both Catholics and Protestants pioneered free healthcare for the poor ‘uninsurable’ because they were motivated by Christian religious convictions.

The New York Times wrote, August 20, 2011, that Catholic nuns were trained to “see Jesus in the face of every patient.”

Mother Teresa reaffirmed this with the Sisters of the Missionaries of Charity being dedicated to: “Wholehearted and Free service to the poorest of the poor.”

They began by gathering the sick from the gutters in India, and bathing them, clothing them, and ministering to their needs.

Mother Teresa stated:

“I see Jesus in every human being. I say to myself, this is hungry Jesus, I must feed him. This is sick Jesus. This one has leprosy or gangrene; I must wash him and tend to him. I serve because I love Jesus.”

It is ironic that in the government’s takeover of healthcare it would force providers to abandon the very religious convictions which created healthcare.

The Judeo-Christian religious convictions which motivated people of faith to selflessly provide free healthcare for the poor for over a thousand years are now considered insignificant by utilitarian central planners.

The Catholic Church is the largest religious denomination in the United States and is the nation’s largest medical care provider with 624 hospitals and 499 long-term health care facilities.

10 of the 25 largest health-care networks in the U.S.are Catholic affiliated, including:

-Catholic Health Initiatives-78 hospitals
-Ascension Health-67 hospitals-Daughters of Charity, Congregation of St. Joseph, Sisters of St. Joseph
-Trinity Health-44 hospitals, 379 Clinics, Catholic Health Ministries
-Catholic Healthcare West-41 hospitals, Sisters of Mercy
-Catholic Health East-34 hospitals, 9 religious congregations & Hope Ministries
-Catholic Healthcare Partners-33 hospitals, Sisters of Mercy, Daughters of Charity
-Providence Health & Services-26 hospitals, Sisters of Providence, Sisters of the Little Company of Mary
-Marian Health System-25 hospitals, Sisters of the Sorrowful Mother

On May 21, 2012, the Archdiocese of New York filed a historic Federal lawsuit against the HHS mandate:

“In order to protect our religious liberties from unwarranted and unprecedented government intrusion, the Archdiocese of New York has filed suit in federal court today seeking to block the recent Health and Human Services mandate that unconstitutionally attempts to define the nature of the Church’s religious ministry and would force religious employers to violate their consciences.”

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops stated October 12, 2012, regarding a supposed “exemption” to the HHS mandate:

“Last night, the…statement was made during the Vice Presidential debate regarding the decision of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to force virtually all employers to include sterilization and contraception, including drugs that may cause abortion, in the health insurance coverage they provide their employees…

That exemption…does not extend to ‘Catholic social services, Georgetown Hospital’…or any other religious charity.”

Georgetown Hospital was founded in 1898 as part of Georgetown University.

Georgetown University was named for George Washington.

It was founded JANUARY 23, 1789, by John Carroll, America’s first Catholic Bishop.

Regarding freedom of conscience, Bishop John Carroll sent a report to Rome in 1790:

“In 1776, American Independence was declared, and a revolution effected, not only in political affairs, but also in those relating to Religion.

For while the thirteen provinces of North America rejected the yoke of England, they proclaimed, at the same time, freedom of conscience, and the right of worshiping the Almighty, according to the spirit of the religion to which each one should belong…”

Bishop Carroll continued:

“Before this great event, the Catholic faith had penetrated two provinces only, Maryland and Pennsylvania. In all the others the laws against Catholics were in force.

Any priest coming from foreign parts, was subject to the penalty of death; all who professed the Catholic faith, were not merely excluded from offices of government, but hardly could be tolerated in a private capacity….

By the Declaration of Independence, every difficulty was removed: the Catholics were placed on a level with their fellow-Christians, and every political disqualification was done away.”

Regarding religious freedom, Bishop John Carroll wrote in the National Gazette, 1789:

“The establishment of the American empire was not the work of this or that religion, but arose from a generous exertion of all her citizens to redress their wrongs, to assert their rights, and lay its foundations on the soundest principles of justice and equal liberty…

An earnest regard to preserve inviolate forever, in our new empire, the great principle of religious freedom.”

John Carroll was the cousin of Charles Carroll, the only Catholic to sign the Declaration of Independence, the longest living of the signers, and the wealthiest man in America.

John’s brother, Daniel Carroll, was one of two Catholics to sign the U.S. Constitution, who provided the land where the Capitol is built and was elected a Congressman.

John’s nephew, Robert Brent was Washington, DC’s first mayor, reappointed by Jefferson and Madison.

John Carroll founded the nation’s first Catholic seminary, parochial school system, and persuaded Elizabeth Seton to start a girls school in Baltimore.

In 1776, the Continental Congress had John Carroll accompany Ben Franklin to Canada in an attempt to persuade that country to join the Revolution.

Esteem for Bishop John Carroll led several States to extend equality to Catholics.

Bishop Carroll wrote:

“Freedom and independence, acquired by…the mingled blood of Protestant and Catholic fellow-citizens, should be equally enjoyed by all.”

Bishop Carroll wrote of Catholics who fought in the Revolution:

“Their blood flowed as freely (in proportion to their numbers) to cement the fabric of independence as that of any of their fellow-citizens.

They concurred with perhaps greater unanimity than any other body of men, in recommending and promoting that government, from whose influence America anticipates all the blessings of justice, peace, plenty, good order and civil and religious liberty.”

Assuring protection for freedom of conscience, President George Washington wrote to Bishop John Carroll, March 15, 1790:

“America, under the smiles of a Divine Providence, the protection of a good government, and the cultivation of manners, morals, and piety, cannot fail of attaining an uncommon degree of eminence…

All those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the community are equally entitled to the protection of civil government.

I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations in examples of justice and liberality…”

President Washington continued:

“And I presume that your fellow-citizens will not forget the patriotic part which you took in the accomplishment of their Revolution, and the establishment of their government;

or the important assistance which they received from a nation in which the Roman Catholic faith is professed…

May the members of your society in America, animated alone by the pure spirit of Christianity, and still conducting themselves as the faithful subjects of our free government, enjoy every temporal and spiritual felicity.”

From Yesterday:

Listen, it is way overdue that we cut ties with this evil empire and stop relying them for the manufacturing of ingredients that go into our prescription drugs! They can hold us hostage! Why have we allowed this????!!!! Crazy stuff! Dealing with a country that kills and lies is just awful! They kill their own people, they persecute Christians, they blow up churches, lock up pastors!!! And we think we can deal with such evil????? The Bible teaches us you cannot deal with fools! We Americans get to greedy, money hungry and get into these relationships with China, Russia and other evil empires! The leaders of China and Russia are fools. Very evil! Dictator Putin assassinates many of his opponents!

Isaiah 5:20

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

Proverbs 8:13

The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.

Proverbs 28:26

Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.

A fool’s mouth is his ruin, and his lips are a snare to his soul.

From Sister Shonda Savage:

Which is worse—the coronavirus or fear?

While I believe the coronavirus is a genuine health concern and safety precautions need to be taken, I believe the spirit of fear is the greater epidemic.

Actually, fear has turned into a pandemic. According to Dictionary.com, a pandemic “is essentially an epidemic that has spread even further than outside its epicenter.”

Fear is a tool of the enemy. Here’s what 2 Timothy 1:7 says,

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline” (NLT).

FEAR IS A SPIRIT THAT WANTS TO INCAPACITATE BELIEVERS SO WE WILL NOT ACCOMPLISH THE PLANS THE LORD HAS FOR OUR LIVES.

Here’s a testimony of John G. Lake:

John G. Lake, a great missionary to South Africa in the early 1900s. In his account, many people in South Africa were dying of disease. While assisting doctors during a bubonic plague outbreak, Lake was asked why he had not contracted the disease, since he used no protection. He said, “It is the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.” To demonstrate, he had them take live bubonic plague germs still foaming from the lungs of a newly dead person and put them in his hands, and then examine the germs under a microscope. The germs were dead! The energy and presence of God was invisible to the naked eye but magnified under the microscope’s lens—there proved to be a real formidable, existing power that killed the virus. This is how John G. Lake explained why he did not get sick—he carried the cure in his body and spirit to heal disease through the power of the Spirit through Jesus. In another amazing testimony, John G. Lake asked doctors to bring him a man with inflammation in the bone. He asked them to take their instruments and attach it to his leg while he prayed for healing. Then he asked them what they saw taking place on their instruments. They replied that every cell was responding positively! John G. Lake replied, “That is God’s divine science!”

The same power that Lake tapped into is available to every believer. The Lord has equipped us and gave us power to defeat the enemy, including the spirit of fear and any disease.

Here are our weapons against fear and disease …

  1. The Word of God

Believe what God’s word says more than what the news reports say. Confess the Word with your mouth every day. The word promises that “no plague shall come near our home” (Psalm 91:10).

  1. The Blood of Jesus

Revelation 12:11 tells us we overcome the enemy by the blood of the Lamb. And Romans 5:9 says, “Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him” (NKJV). 

  1. Pray in Faith

The enemy wants us to focus so much on the problem and bind us in fear to stop our prayers. Our prayers for ourselves and others are powerful.

James 5:16 says, “Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results” (NLT).

Pray for our communities, our countries, and the countries around the world. Pray for our President and other leaders to have wisdom.

Today choose to conquer the pandemic of fear and the virus by confessing the Word of God, applying the blood of Jesus, and praying in faith.

The prayer of protection from Psalm 91 plus more than 30 Scripture-based prayers are included in Appeal to the Courtroom of Heaven.

In Appeal to the Courtroom of Heaven: Petitions for Prisoners and Prison Families I share my unexpected prison family journey testimony. I also point out how the Lord redeemed the worst-of-the-worst offenders found in the pages of the Bible and explain an effective prayer strategy I learned from this experience.

I pray my transparency and vulnerability points to the source of HOPE for those who lost hope in the midst of despair.
