FEAR NOT! 

Do you think Ebola is in the Bible? There are many references to pestilence and disease. Ebola is not there by name, but in principle. God has often allowed pestilence to come into a people, even His chosen people, when they defy Him with their abominations. It is His judgement against their incorrigible sinfulness and rebellion. Yet, He also offers a way out through repentance, a turning back to His ways. My concern is in this context for America. Here are my thoughts on the Ebola crisis.

  1. Our President said it would not come here. He was wrong.
  2. Our President said it would not spread. He was wrong.
  3. He refuses to stop incoming commercial flights from West Africa. He is wrong. Twenty other nations have already done this. The CDC reason is ridiculous; saying that we could not send helpers to Africa. Of course we could. And we should. They would travel on supervised charter flights and be quarantined for 21 days upon their return.
  4. Ellis Island. Hello? Isn’t that what we did in the early days?
  5. Early astronauts returning were quarantined to protect against any space germs.
  6. One proposal would have an Ebola unit in every state. (I thought it is not going to spread in the US.) This would involve astronomical costs in money and personnel, that would possibly bankrupt some hospitals. Even now, the Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas has converted its ICU to Ebola and sends their own patients to other hospitals.
  7. So, here’s an idea. Let’s fight this disease at its source (10,000 new cases each week) and stop importing 150 potential Ebola carriers per day to the US!

FEAR NOT! Why should we be afraid if God is with us? Here is just a sampling of encouragement from the Bible:

When they came to the oasis of Marah, the water was too bitter to drink. So they called the place Marah (which means “bitter”). Then the people complained and turned against Moses. “What are we going to drink?” they demanded. So Moses cried out to Yehovah for help, and Yehovah showed him a piece of wood. Moses threw it into the water, and this made the water good to drink. It was there at Marah that Yehovah set before them the following decree as a standard to test their faithfulness to him. He said, “If you will listen carefully to the voice of Yehovah your God and do what is right in his sight, obeying his commands and keeping all his decrees, then I will not make you suffer any of the diseases I sent on the Egyptians; for I am Yehovah who heals you.” Exodus 15:23-26 NLT
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about Yehovah: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. Psalm 91:1-7 NLT
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

(I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!   (for deeper study click here.)
