Today we are reading one chapter in Paul’s letter to the Romans and two chapters in 2 Kings.

May 27: Romans 5, 2 Kings 3, 2 Kings 4 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Romans 5. This is a great chapter and tells how faith triumphs in trouble, one quote: “God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” And so it is: Death came through one man, Adam, but “if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.” Let that sink in. The rest of the chapter is just as great.

2 Kings 3. There was trouble all around: Moab Rebelled against Israel. Israel called for Judah and Edom to help.  They gathered their armies and horses, but after seven days without water they called for Elisha. He told them to dig ditches in the desert. They obeyed, and without rain the ditches are filled, they all got water and quenched the rebellion. Then they punished Moab, but the King offered his firstborn son as a burnt offering. This was too drastic even for Israel, so they drew back.

2 Kings 4, Like Elijah, Elisha multiplied a widow’s oil, like Elijah, Elisha raised a person from death, this time the Shunammite’s son. Elisha purified a pot of stew, and at another time he fed one hundred men with twenty small loaves of bread, and there were leftovers, much like Jesus did, but on a much smaller scale.

Today we are reading one chapter in Paul’s letter to the Romans, and starting with two chapters in 2 Kings.

May 26: Romans 4, 2 Kings 1, 2 Kings 2 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Romans 4. Abraham was justified by faith, not works and definitely not circumcision. Where there is no law, there is no transgression. Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed, and it was credited to him as righteousness. And “for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;  Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.

2 Kings 1. God Judged Ahaziah. Elijah the prophet delivered the messages from God, and so Ahaziah died, left no heir, so Joram, son of Ahab became king.

2 Kings 2, Elijah was taken up to heaven, Elisha asked for a double portion of Elijah’s spirit, and received it, because he witnessed Elijah’s ascension.

A stunning result for HCQ +Az treatment for COVID-19 patients in Qatar! A Limerick.

The HCQ test made in Qatar

is stunning, that is all I can utter

For the death rate is low

A great fearmonger blow

Ignore it! The media mutter.

Qatar is an interesting country. It hosts America’s biggest Air base in the Middle East. With a population of only 2,8 million people it has 45,465 people that tested positive for the coronavirus, or 1.58% of the population, the highest in the world reported so far, bur only 26 deaths so far, only 0.009%, and there are nearly 400 recoveries for every death, the highest in the world.

How can that be? Does Qatar have a very unusual population profile? Yes, indeed

but it is not because of many children, no, over half of the population is working age males, nearly all guest workers. This explains a lot, but even that is not the main cause.

No, they have done a nearly universal medical protocol for all that test positive for the COVID-19 virus. All will get Hydroxychloroquine + Azithromycin , but a random sample will be selected for a small, double blind study. It started April 14 and ended May 14. The results will be published May 30 of so, but we don’t have to wait for the results of that test to verify the effectiveness of this medical treatment if begun as soon as symptoms materialize. To have the highest infection rate and the lowest death rate in the world is sufficient reason for me to advocate HCQ + AC for all eligible testing positive. Maybe if you include Zinc in the protocol the results would be even better, but we cannot wait for all the results to come in. Let us save lives now!

Today we read one chapter in Paul’s letter to the  Romans, and one chapter in 1 Kings.

May 25: Romans 3, 1 Kings 22 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Romans 3 is full of memorable quotations: “let God be true, but every man a liar.” It speaks of God’s faithfulness and God’s Judgment, “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one” , “ For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God,“and “Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law,” just to name a few. Read them all, and marvel.

1 Kings 22. Micalah prophesied against Ahab, Ahab disguised himself for protection but died in battle by a stray arrow. Jehoshaphat became King of Judah, followed by Ahaziah.

Today we one chapter in Paul’s letter to the Romans, and two chapters in 1 Kings.

May 24: Romans 2, 1 Kings 20, 1 Kings 21 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Romans 2. Paul pointed out that you have no excuse,  God’s judgement is righteous, Jews and Gentiles are equally guilty, and circumcision is of no avail.

1 Kings 20. Ahab defeated the Syrians and he did it twice. After that Ahab made a treaty with Ben-Hadad, and that led to the prophecy of Ahab’s Condemnation.

1 Kings 21. Naboth was killed for his vineyard and for that the LORD condemned Ahab.

Today we are the first chapter of Paul’s letter to the Romans, and one chapter in 1 Kings.

May 23: Romans 1, 1 Kings 19 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Romans 1 starts with an eloquent greeting to all in Rome, and it is just as valid for us today as it was then. Paul longed to visit Rome and impart scriptural spiritual wisdom, such as “the Just shall live by Faith.” Then he explained how the wrath of God was to come on mankind because they “changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator.

1 Kings 19. After the fantastic victory at Mount Carmel Elijah fled from Jezebel, the “exhibit A” of names of evil women featured in literature and films.  He fled, got strengthened by an angel that fed him a meal that gave him enough strength to go all the way to Mount Horeb. There he heard “The Still Small Voice.” God reminded Elijah  that “I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.” Elisha then received the call to follow Elijah.

Hydroxychloroquine + Zinc is the answer? Check the death rates of nine countries that use it.

This is a very interesting chart:

But wait. Not so fast. These countries have a younger population, and the death rate is much lower for younger people. This chart tells it all.

The death rate doubles for every 8 years as you age or about 9% per year. The world median age is 30.4 years. So let the world death rate be the norm

World death rate as of May 21 is 6.42% of diagnosed cases.

Turkey: Death rate 2.77%, median age 30.9, adjusted death rate 2.64%

South Korea: Death rate 2.37%, median age 30.9, adjusted death rate 2.26%

Malaysia: Death rate 1.61%, median age 28.5, adjusted death rate 1.91%

Senegal: Death rate 1.13%, median age 18.8, adjusted death rate 3.00%

Costa Rica: Death rate 1.11%, median age 31.3, adjusted death rate 1.02%

United Arab emirates: Death rate 0.88%, median age 30.9, adjusted death rate 0.84%

Bahrain: Death rate 1.43%, median age 32.3, adjusted death rate 1.20%

Morocco: Death rate 2.70%, median age 29.3, adjusted death rate 2.92%

Russia: Death rate 1.00%, median age 30.9, adjusted death rate 0.95%

Taking the average, not adjusted for the size of the populations we get the average adjusted death rate for countries, where people are taking HCQ + Zinc when diagnosed positive, is 1.89%.

This means that the risk of death is reduced by a factor of 3.4 if HZQ + Zinc is taken as early as possible after a positive diagnosis for coronavirus!

These 9 countries are living proof of it. Why are we not implementing it today?
