    Re: Coronavirus Plague was sent by God to show His Wrath

    I've been thinking about that, especially in the light of James Hutchins' post. Those people were resurrected after an unspecified time buried in graves. Some could have been there for centuries. Did the regenerative process commence at the time of The Crucifixion or was it spontaneous at the moment of Christ's revivification?
    .1235 BC.
    .Deborah and Barak.Judges 4
    1235 BC.
    .The Song of Deborah and Barak..Judges 5
    30 AD.
    .Jesus' Betrayal, Trial, Crucifixion.Matthew 27.
    30 AD.
    .Jesus' Resurrection.Matthew 28

    In the case of Deborah (were she to have been among the resurrected) that would be over twelve centuries. Quite a lot of tissue to reassemble and hence my curiosity about when that process started. Could it have been during the time when Mary was visiting her cousin? Something happened then. From the historical record:
    Luke 1:35, 38-41 The angel answered [Mary] and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God … Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her. And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; and entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost

    The leaping baby was John Baptist, his mother was Mary's cousin. Clearly a rapport existed between John's nervous system and whatever was happening (or about to happen) to Mary. The same vivifying spirit was active then as in those graves later and I do wonder if there was a simultaneous effect on the deceased causing them to start reassembling.

    Additionally I've always wondered at what point they regained consciousness? I know that not everyone accepts New Testament events as ever having happened at all but this is a Christian forum and those people would not be Christians. Perhaps they could be Episcopalian bishops or weird Nordic Lutherans, OK, but I can't see what basis they have for their beliefs once they've decided there's nothing historical in The New Testament. It's really quite sad.

    But anyway, I don't come into that category and God explains that plague blasted Christians (if there are any) will be resurrected to life eternal. Which is why I thought about Deborah. Would the early signs of future resurrection be present in Christians today?

      Re: Coronavirus Plague was sent by God to show His Wrath

      I'm trying to make sense of this new data. It shows men in New York City are twice as likely to die of the virus as women.

      I keep going back to Eve. She persuaded Adam to share in the original sin. Could it be women are back in business manipulating things like Eve did with Adam? Are they tempting men in some way causes men to contract a more deadly strain of the virus?

      I have to admit I cannot get this question out of my mind. Maybe someone here can help.

      Isaiah 24:1-3 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty (2)...as the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. (3) The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken his word.

        This is an interesting question and I wonder whether the answer is that they did not recover consciousness? The verse talks about bodies which arose and appeared to many. Based on the description, they seem not to be chatting among themselves nor with the living.

        Maybe they were just animated but soulless bodies in different states of decomposition* that were hanging around in celebration of Jesus' death and resurrection?

        * It would have been quite a lot of decomposition for Deborah, although there's a chance she would have still some desiccated flesh or even some chunks of hair, if she had been buried in a very arid environment.

          Yes, I see your point. The somatic experience devoid of breath.

          And yet, when presented as supporting evidence for the breath of life reanimating Jesus, the idea of personal spirit is at least implied. The witnesses to this event are not named but we could assume that Matthew was one of them and since the cadavers could be identified (as specific saints since otherwise you couldn't tell whether it was a saint or not) something less general that mere "flesh" is suggested. A degree of restriction of action such as applies to individuals, although neutral as regards actual identity, comes through here so as not to exclude Deborah or Habakkuk but not to include them either. Flesh, or tooth and hair, could be anyone: male/female slave/king eagle/pig. Individuals do not have that degree of liberty, humans for example can't choose to be eagles.

          Flesh endowed with personality however—and these "bodies" were identifiable as saints—could be male or female. That suggests a portion of the breath vivifying Christ's cadaver was distributed sufficiently for the bodies to resume their authentic personæ.

            So it turns out Texas is the new New York when it comes to coronavirus. Who knew there were so many sinners in the Godly State of Texas?

            Still, God is clearly showing who the sinners are, as He is mowing through the sinful Catholic masses of Hispanics.

              Sister, I must report that Christians have mostly moved out of the big cities in Texas, due to the overwhelming presence of Roman Catholic Mexicans and Central Americans, blatant sinners, other Democrats and murderous thieves of every description.

              The cities are turned over to sin and depravity everywhere, including drive through teat viewing, drinking, gambling on dice and dominoes, card playing, dope using and fornication. There is no love for Jesus among them and they are all going to Hell, there to burn in unquenchable fiery punishment for their Godless existence. Many have already gone on to their reward and more will follow as God lays waste the cities with His Chinese Virus.

              Edit- I forgot to mention the daincing. There's daincing and some of them are nekid.


              Out here in the hinterlands, among Christians and deer, no one has the virus and all are healthy and waiting for Jesus to come. Surely, He will be here soon.
              God judgeth the righteous, And God is angry with the wicked every day- Psalm 7:11

                People need to move to those places on the map of America where there are fewer cases of the plague.

                They need to build churches and Praise Jesus in a strong, unified voice. Then the un-plagued areas will spread out to the plagued areas and the map will be one color.
