Today we read the fourth chapter of the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians and three chapters of the Song of Solomon.

August 6: Ephesians 4, Song of Solomon 4, Song of Solomon 5, Song of Solomon 6 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Ephesians 4. Paul urged the believers to walk in unity, because there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism and one God, even though there are different spiritual gifts. He reminded them they are children of light, do not grieve the spirit, and “do not let the sun go down on your wrath“.

Song of Solomon 4. The bridegroom praises the bride.

Song of Solomon 5. The Shulamite’s troubled evening.

Song of Solomon 6. The bridegroom and friends praise the Shulamite’s beauty.

Today we read the third chapter of the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians and the first three chapters of Song of Solomon.

August 5: Ephesians 3, Song of Solomon 1, Song of Solomon 2, Song of Solomon 3 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Ephesians 3. “The meaning of the Greek word mysterion is a truth hitherto hidden from human knowledge or understanding but now disclosed by the revelation of God.”  With that in mind this chapter reveals the mystery of Christ,  its purpose  and the appreciation of the mystery.

Song of Solomon 1. The Song of Songs stands unique in the Bible. It has no obvious religious content, just beautiful poetry. But it fits with the theme of love permeating the Bible. It starts with the Banquet.

Song of Solomon 2, the Banquet, the Beloved’s Request.

Song of Solomon 3, a Troubled Night, the Coming of Solomon.

Good news on the corona-virus. Death rates are down drastically in most countries. Sweden is now a leader in COVID recovery.

The Corona-virus pandemic has now been with us half a year and for the first time the trends ate looking better, giving us hope that the worst is over.

In the beginning the worldwide death rate was 8,65% and it is now down to 2.23%, a reduction of 74.2%. Total deaths worldwide are about 700,000 which is still less then the annual TB deaths that amount to 1.6 million, of which 300,000 are HIV positive.

The corresponding numbers for U.S.A :  7.02%  death rate at the beginning of the disease. Ir is now down to 1.84%, a 74% decrease. With unrestricted availability to take HCQ+ we can reduce the death rate even further.

Now it is getting interesting. While nearly all industrialized nations shut down their non-essential functions, such as schools, elective surgery, elective medical diagnostics, non food stores, flights, travel, restaurants, non essential government services and the like Sweden took a different approach. They kept their elementary schools open, did not close stores and restaurants, only mandated increased hygiene and practice social distancing, and then they let the virus rage as a normal flu, and waited for the so called “herd immunity.” Sweden did their best. though to protect the vulnerable.

In the beginning the results were disastrous. The initial death rate was over 21%, it seemed  like a failed attempt, but then things started to calm down. In late spring the death rate had settled down to 9.2%, but then came a second wave of cases and everyone was bracing for the worst. But the death rate  did not rise, and is now down to 0.41%. Let the charts speak for themselves:

New cases do not disappear altogether, they may even rise as sporting events and large gatherings resume.

Deaths are way down. Maybe “herd immunity”  is achieved? Time will tell.

The death charts from Sweden gives me hope, even for a state like Florida. It escaped the early peak of cases, the most vulnerable were protected, so the max death rate was held at 7.74%. In June the teal wave of cases came, and was climbing until mid July, after which the daily new cases have declined. The deaths were rising until Aug 1, after which they too will follow the Swedish decline and “herd immunity will be reached in three months, if personal hygiene and social distancing protocols are still obeyed.  Here are the charts for Florida:

 

These charts follow the Swedish charts, but with a 3 month delay.

Today we read the second chapter of the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians and the last four chapters of Ecclesiastes.

August 4: Ephesians 2, Ecclesiastes 9, Ecclesiastes 10, Ecclesiastes 11, Ecclesiastes 12 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Ephesians 2. This is the famous chapter explaining that we are saved by grace through faith and brought near by His blood, and, once saved, we are His ‘poem’  (ποιημα). Furthermore, Christ is our peace and our cornerstone. There is much more in this chapter.

Ecclesiastes 9. Death comes to all,  and wisdom  is better than folly.

Ecclesiastes 10. Yes indeed, wisdom is better than folly.

Ecclesiastes 11 explains the value of diligence. One advice: Seek God early in life.

Ecclesiastes 12. “Remember now thy creator in the days of your youth“. “Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”

Today we read the first chapter of the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians and three chapters of Ecclesiastes.

August 3: Ephesians 1, Ecclesiastes 6, Ecclesiastes 7, Ecclesiastes 8 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Ephesians 1. This letter is a wonderful explanation of the Christian Gospel. Paul started out with a greeting, then explained what it means to get redemption in Christ and ended up with a prayer for spiritual wisdom.

Ecclesiastes 6. Vanity is the theme, this time the vanity of desire.

Ecclesiastes 7. There is value in practical wisdom.

Ecclesiastes 8. Obey authorities for God’s Sake, and yes, this too is in Ecclesiastes: “Eat, drink and be merry.” It fits with the theme of vanity.

Dr Fauci knew of the cure for SARS-Coronavirus in 2005. It was Chloroquine. Please release the hydroxychloroquine + Zinc + Zitromax now!

The SARS-Coronavirus appeared first in China in 2002. It spread rapidly, and NIH tried to develop a vaccine it disappeared. What they found instead was that chloroquine (same as hydroxychloroquine, but with more side-effects) was an effective anti-virus fighter, so effective that it could completely abolish the SARS-Covid infection. This was in 2005

Fast forward to 2020. This time they were not going to let the cure get established before the vaccine. Hydroxychloroquine + Zinc + Zitromax is an effective cure if taken as soon as symptoms occur. HCQ by itself is a good prophylactic, completely safe for nearly everybody (even for pregnant women and nursing mothers), and has been approved for Lupus and rheumatoid arthritis for many years without problem. These people take HCQ forever.

It is time to provide HCQ as an over the counter drug.

Here is the WhiteHouse petition. Please sign it if you care to save lives.

In between The Apostle Paul’s letter to the Galatians and his letter to the Ephesian we read one Psalm and three chapters of Ecclesiastes.

August 2: Psalm 69, Ecclesiastes 3, Ecclesiastes 4, Ecclesiastes 5 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Psalm 69, of David. When you get that sinking feeling, this Psalm lifts you back up, “I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.”

Ecclesiastes 3. There is a time for everything. The gift of God is that He has set eternity in our hearts, yet injustice seems to prevail.

Ecclesiastes 4. There is oppression but no comforter, there is vanity of selfish toil. There is value in having friends “a cord of three strands is not quickly broken,” yet, popularity passes away.

Ecclesiastes 5. Fear God, keep your vows. There is vanity in amassing riches, even vanity in seeking honor.

Hydroxychloroquine should be sold over the counter in limited quantities, It is safer than Aspirin, Tylenol and Benadryl. Sign the petition

We are making great strides in the fight against the corona-virus. In the beginning the disease had an 8,67% death rate. It is now down to 2.19%.

For all states, June 15, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revoked the emergency use authorization (EUA) that allowed for chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate donated to the Strategic National Stockpile to be used to treat certain hospitalized patients with COVID-19 when a clinical trial was unavailable, or participation in a clinical trial was not feasible. The agency determined that the legal criteria for issuing an EUA are no longer met. Based on its ongoing analysis of the EUA and emerging scientific data, the FDA determined that chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are unlikely to be effective in treating COVID-19 for the authorized uses in the EUA.

By the time the patient is hospitalized it may be too late to have any benefit of HCQ+ treatment. It works best as a prophylactic or taken as soon as the telltale sign occurs, loss of taste and smell, shortness of breath, etc. Then is the time to start the HCQ + Zn + Zmax treatment, even before a positive diagnosis is established.

Release HCQ to be sold as over the counter medication. For LUPUS and rheumatorial arthritis patients it is even prescribed to pregnant women and nursing mothers. It is that safe.

Here is the petition to the WhiteHouse to release it to over the counter dispensation. (19287 signed so far)

 

August 1, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

In between The Apostle Paul’s letter to the Galatians and his letter to the Ephesians we read two Psalms and the first two chapters of Ecclesiastes.

August 1: Psalm 67, Psalm 68, Ecclesiastes 1, Ecclesiastes 2 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Psalm 67, a Song. A short, beautiful Psalm of praise and singing. It ends with the prophetic “God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.

Psalm 68, of David. George Horne described how this psalm was assigned to Pentecost in the Anglican liturgy, no doubt because it describes gifts given upon ascension and is quoted in Ephesians 4. “This beautiful, sublime, and comprehensive, but very difficult Psalm, is one of those which the church has appointed to be used on Whitsunday.”

Ecclesiastes 1. The author, king Solomon spoke of the vanity of life and the grief of wisdom.

Ecclesiastes 2 King Solomon continued with the vanity of pleasure, the end of the wise and the end of the fool.
