More Than 100 Are Dead As The Worst Flu Epidemic In Years Sweeps Across The United States

By Michael Snyder, on Jan 14, 2017

This flu season is already off to a record-setting beginning, and many believe that it could ultimately be the worst that we have seen in decades.  In fact, it has been reported that if we stay on this current pace that this could truly be the worst flu season in more than 50 years.  As you will see below, the CDC is reporting widespread flu activity from coast to coast, and the death toll has already crossed 100.  Here in the United States, flu season usually begins in October and ends in May, and so we still have a long way to go before it is over.

Normally the mainstream media tries very hard to keep the public calm about these things, but even the Washington Post admits that we are having “a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad flu season”…

The nation is having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad flu season.

Flu is widespread in 46 states, according to reports to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Nationally, as of mid-December, at least 106 people had died of the infectious disease.

Usually a flu outbreak is centered in one portion of the country, but this one is different.  According to the CDC, this outbreak is affecting the entire nation, and the number of cases climbed another 5.8 percent within the past week…

“Flu is everywhere in the US right now,” said Dr. Dan Jernigan, director of the CDC’s influenza branch. “This is the first year we’ve had the entire continental US at the same level (of flu activity) at the same time.” It has been an early flu season that seems to be peaking now, he said, with a 5.8% increase in laboratory-confirmed cases this week over last.

Most people that get the flu don’t die, but it is very important for all of us to understand that this is a very serious outbreak.

In California, things have already gotten so bad that some hospitals have started to run out of Tamiflu

California has been particularly hard hit, with at least 27 deaths of people under 65 attributed to the flu, according to reports. As the number of cases continues to climb there, hospitals are beginning to run out of Tamiflu, the anti-viral medication used to treat the illness.

If you live in an area where the flu is running rampant, it may be wise to avoid public areas for a while.  Unfortunately, the vast majority of us cannot do that.  Most Americans have work or school commitments that cannot be avoided, and the flu can often spread very rapidly in those environments.

Back during the bird flu scare a few years ago, some schools actually closed for a time, and we are starting to see that happen again.  For example, one school down in Texas had a “flu day” on Friday…

A school in San Antonio will be closed Friday for a “flu day” amid an outbreak of influenza.

“While closed, our school will be launching a Super Clean of each classroom for the health of our faculty, staff and students,” San Antonio Christian School posted on Facebook.

Texas has been especially hard-hit by the flu this season, topping Walgreens’ Flu Index, which compiles data from prescriptions used to treat the virus’ symptoms.

Every year the authorities relentlessly promote the flu shot, but large numbers of people that got the flu shot this year are getting sick anyway.

Sadly, the flu shot is not likely to protect you from the very powerful strains of the flu that are dominant this flu season.  In fact, the experts are telling us that the flu shot was only “around 10 percent” effective during the flu season in Australia this year…

U.S. flu specialists say they won’t completely know how powerful this present season’s antibody is until the point that the season is finished. In any case, Australia’s experience recommends viability was just around 10 percent. In the United States, it is 40 to 60 percent powerful in a normal season. Immunizations are less defensive if strains are not the same as anticipated and if sudden transformations happen.

Hopefully everyone out there is stocking up on Vitamin C and echinacea.  We still have more than two months of winter left, and the spread of the flu appears to be accelerating.

If you do get sick, please stay home and don’t expose others.  Many of us like to try to battle through an illness, and in the process we can inadvertently share it with others.

Eventually this flu epidemic will pass, but for now we need to be smart as we weather this storm.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem – Psa 122:6 (KJV)

It’s Time to Seek and Know the Lord

Do You Have a Relationship with God?

“Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, 24- but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”.” -Jer 9:23-24 (ESV)

We live in a fast-paced world and the days seem to be whizzing by like a fast moving train. We go here and there – to work, to shop, to play, and then back home to eat and sleep. The next day we recycle the previous day’s events and regimen. But when as Christians do we just stop and get alone with Almighty God? No distractions and no one else around? When do we as so-called Christians take (make) the time to seek the Lord in prayer and communication creating an ongoing relationship with Him?

Friends it’s time to quiet yourself before Him (Psa 37:7), continue in constant prayer (2 Th 5:7), meditate on His word (Psa 19:14) and let Him speak to you through His word – the Bible. Seriously and in full honesty – how many of us actually do these things? Great men and women of the Bible did and drew close to God, loved Him and obeyed His word. Do we?

The verse above (Jer 9:23-24) says that we can have boastful wisdom, be a mighty person in strength, honor, wealth, but these are not what the Lord looks for. He says that we should understand and know Him for in this He delights. Is this not the bottom line to our Christianity? It’s not about how many times we attend church or do good things. It’s about our relationship with our Creator God. Do we strive to stay on that narrow road despite all the pressures of this life to push us off onto the wide road that leads to destruction (Luke 13:24; Matt 7:14)?

Are you serving God and the Lord Jesus Christ or are you serving Christianity and all the things that this present world and church define it as? We need now to focus in on developing a rock-solid relationship with our Father in heaven. This is of utmost importance. This is were our faith is created, strengthened and established. This is about who we rely on now and when the really tough times hit.

So is your faith in Christ built on your relationship with Him or on your church attendance, listening to the music and the sermon and seeing all your friends there? Is it more about optics that a deep spiritual relationship with Jesus? Don’t get me wrong, it’s fine to attend a good Bible-believing, Bible-teaching church but please examine why you attend church in the first place. It is about being entertained, seeing your friends, talking the dribble of the world or it it solely about seeking the Lord in worship and truth?

But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” – John 4:23-24 (NASB)

It’s time friends to get right with God and develop a sincere love of your heavenly Lord and Father. We must focus our worship in spirit and in the truth of Him. Which brings me to the question, again we all must face – how often do we read His word, the Holy Bible? This is how He can speak to us. If you are serious about developing a true relationship with the Lord you will read His word (provided your in a country that allows His word to be available). The flip side of this fact is, if you don’t, putting it off for this excuse or that, your Christianity is in vain, fake and only in name only. Therefore in light of these words being said, it’s time for all of us to reassess where we stand in Him, where our faith is, where our hope and trust is and return to Him with sincerity of heart in truth. One day we will stand before Him, are you ready if that days was today?

Shalom and amen.

The Nations Are Against Israel

“Norway, EU call meeting in bid to ‘speed up’ efforts for 2-state solution”, The Times of Israel – 1/10/2017

Bible Prophecy Commentary: Watch Israel-

Want to know where we are at in the timeline of Bible Prophecy? Look at what’s occurring around Israel. Norway joining the 2-state solution fray is fueling the fire of Jerusalem becoming a burdensome stone to all nations – Zech 12:3.

Watch Israel for we can get a good picture of what could happen next according to what is written for the last days in the Bible. All nations will eventually come against Israel, which is pretty much the way it is today. Yet the US stands strong behind them. It’s conceivable to say that the Gog/Magog coalition of Russia-Iran and Turkey can’t happen until America is removed from being world power. How will that happen? Well, let me say it’s already started: weak and timid, sexually infected military, poorly maintained military and a Congress and White House that cannot live in peace. Scandals, double talk, back peddling, lies, untruths are defeating this nation without firing a single shot. Civil unrest is plaguing this nation like an infection. Deception is reigning strong and destroying the most prosperous and militarily superior nation this world has ever known.

Are you aware of these things? Do you read your Bible? The Lord is returning … will you be ready?

“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nighWatch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” -Luke 21:28, 36 (KJV)

WOES TO THE NATIONS THAT COME AGAINST ISRAEL!

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.”  -Zech 12:3-4 (KJV)
