Government leaders are frantic to do something, anything, to assuage concern about the potential spread of Ebola. But air travel is neither the problem nor the solution.
Nonetheless, the government answer is, as in so many crises, that even doing a useless thing is better than doing nothing. So we now have “increased screening” at several airports, including JFK. But the problem is, the Ebola patient who died recently in Dallas arrived from Brussels, while the increased screening targets passengers arriving from Liberia, Sierra Leonne, and Guinea. One connection later, as in his case, the possibility of detection is beyond the “new” screening.
Meanwhile, no mention is made of special screening of international arrivals in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle, all of which have seaports and airports with regular international arrivals from Europe…

I know it’s hard waiting patiently but I’m a witness that’s if you hold on God always proves himself faithful. S/O to the one and only Jesus Christ who died in the cross that you and I might have life and the right unto the tree of life. That was no small deed in fact it was so grand that it’s granted me access place my flesh could never take me.
Only You Lord
This is a quick personal testimony of how we all are sinners saved by grace. I’ve recently been extremely busy, boggled down with the toils of life and mundane rituals some of us call errands, daily duties, obligations, careers, etc. Now in those daily duties you’d think it common to say I’m just living life or doing whats required of me however to those of us who are in deep servitude to Jesus Christ find that these things take a toll on our offerings to the God of Heaven. Yes it seems right to say Jesus understands or God knows my heart but in all actuality it’s times like these when he (the Father) would be most moved by my early AM 20min prayer, or by my mid-day Lunch fast, or simply by me stopping all the task that the world requires and saying “Thank You Jesus for loving me yet and still today”. I’ve found myself so wrapped up in trying to keep up that I easily had begun to stray from my everyday sacrifice. To some these are menial task and of what seems to be no value but to the God of heaven if it’s from your heart these simple offerings are what the scripture defines as a sweet savor.
Today try to take advantage of your down time. Those moments when you think to pick up your cell phone and browse social media; instead download a bible app and read a scripture, when you think to make a call and speak into the air that which is of no value, feed your spiritual man, instead of over-eating push the plate back and eat something untangible and of substance. Lets began to take back that which we’ve freely given away in destraction of things that will profit us nothing. Remember you didnt wake yourself up this AM nor did youre alarm clock but the God of heaven who continuously dares to show us the meaning of unconditonal love even though we be ignorant or blatantly reject it. Prove your flesh wrong today by training it up the ways of righteousness. I’m learning that these things drive us unto eternal live…..what’s that you say ask?? Oh it’s simple, to know the the Father and his Son Christ Jesus.
After all when I know him who created the heavens and the earth, don’t i know all I’ll ever need to know…….
Save Us Now :: J D C
Have you ever come to a holding point in your life? A place where you say to yourself, “I need a miracle?” Have you ever felt as if you’re standing before a brick wall? A brick wall that’s proving relentless? Let’s take a brief journey back to 1BC when people of our faith were in great distress and see how they coped. If we sum up the four Gospels, you will find that the world was in chaos. The government was crooked, people lived in bondage, and the religious government was corrupt. The people only found hope from the prophets, and by way of testimonies (past and present). People witnessed martyrdom on a regular basis. Food was rationed and often hard to come by. There were several ailments without a cure, people without employment, and even more people without homes.
As you read these things you begin to wonder how we still progressed as a people. When I read these passages, I see so much selfishness, greed, hypocrisy, and tyranny. The people of Israel had gone for years seeing these things plague families, friends, comrades, and even innocent bystanders. Their only hope was that the God of Israel would send the Messiah, who would deliver them out of all their captivity.
As I read the book of Mark I became inspired. I was uplifted and found myself in a euphoric state of happiness.
When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it. Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted,
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!”
“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
After reading this, you see a ray of hope. A sense of promise and virtue go out into the atmosphere. With all the turmoil and trauma plaguing the lives of the people, here comes Jesus, the promise they’ve awaited. The Messiah, who had been spoken of, was now coming to their cities and streets. The people shouted Hosanna, which translated in Hebrew means “Save Now.” It’s a cry of adoration. The people recognized that Jesus is so much bigger and more powerful than any problem they faced.
I encourage you to look at your situations; look at your trials with a new perspective. Smile, take a deep breath, and simply say Hosanna. I’m encouraged to take all my problems to Jesus and cry with excitement because I know what he can do.
Let me remind you of what Jesus said:
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
With adoration and glee I can say Hosanna who comes in the name of our Lord. Save me now!!
