      It would sure be an easy way for them to explain why so many people suddenly “died”.

      Announcement!!

      It’s truly a break-through of advanced science and mortuary arts!  Millions of people have clearly died of COVID-19.  Disinfecting was going to be a messy chore before this breakthrough.  But to save the world from unnecessary postmortem dangers, the mortuary industry perfected, as a service, the immaculate removal your loved-one’s dead body without a trace, leaving only the telltale clothing last worn, if any, and their embedded prosthetic devices behind intact, as cherished memorabilia.

      And for only $5,500, the cost of the casket your loved one ultimately didn’t need, they’ll create an official death certificate for insurance and probate purposes, having a quality equal to or exceeding the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate.

      A windfall boon to the left-behind unbelieving mortuary science specialists.  Think of the possibilities!

        :mdrmdr:   Yes!  And how does the left behind loved one receive the life insurance or spousal retirement benefits, etc. without a dead body?   They can’t prove the person died … and can you just see the insurance company getting tons of calls to process claims and they quickly have to write into their rule book “sorry but you can’t use your loved one simply “vanished into thin air” or “flew away”.  So all the benefit money set aside … will likely stay in the hands of  the insurance company. :wacko:

        I believe insurance companies call that an “Act of God. ” Yup.  :yahoo:

        :mdrmdr:   Good one!  I should have remembered that … I used to read the contracts for the conference trade shows before my boss would sign them and any calamities were considered “an Act of God” and no refunds.  It happened once when our sales team and a couple of programmers were  suppose to be in San Francisco the week of 9/11 but they shut down all air travel.  The trade show got cancelled and all the companies who rented booths and hotel rooms (discount lodging was also thru the same organization that sponsored the trade shows so no refunds given for the hotel rooms either)

      Yes!  Something is fishy … because now they don’t want us to leave the house … not even go grocery shopping.  You have to wonder are they going to force people to stay off the streets with martial law?

      This latest news headline – they are expecting high numbers of deaths … how fitting if the church disappears during that timeframe!

      “White House suggests avoiding grocery stores and public places over the next few weeks, as the COVID-19 battle escalates”

        They’ve also been saying for about 2 weeks now that the virus will peak around Easter. I wonder why they keep saying that or how they could even know that.

      Yes, I read something somewhere that was talking about how the first Passover the Hebrews were locked in their houses, but ready to go on a moment’s notice.  Not unlike this year on Passover.    But also the first Easter and for the few days after the disciples were locked away for fear of the authorities.

      I see alot of loose ends and keep trying to tie them all together to explain what it all means……all i know for sure is i have not been singing anything sadder than “zippity doo dah” over the last month or so.  Time is short.

      So, I have laughed :mdrmdr:  and chuckled through this forum chain. Much of it makes sense too!
      First, when a person dies, by law, the last known physician of record must sign a death certificate, that is proof of death that is acceptable for the next of kin or legal entity to collect insurance and must be in place before cremation or burial is legally allowed. But, I loved the string of comments. Cremation has always been an all consuming, by fire, :mdrmdr: removal of body parts. Always cheaper too. Pretty heated up conversation! Just saying! B-)

      I have thought this quarantine is a great and brilliant concept for people just being gone. No mess, no fuss! :prayer-hands:

      Yep … its a modge podge thread … let me throw in the super moon!  I went outside on my front porch and was surprise to see it so soon.  Its much more spectacular in person than from this iPad shot.  I reckon the next 2 nights its will be even bigger and pinkish! :whistle:    Hey, if you have a clear sky and can take a better picture of it, I would love to see it in your region!

        That is neat you saw the pinkish tint.  Perhaps tonight you can get another chance to take a cool pic.  Do you live right near the beach?

        I had the same issue with hazy sky and then the trees were in the way.  I did notice it was much bigger than the prior night and still bright out even though it was behind the haze when I walked my dog at midnight. No flashlight needed.

        Regina and Arthur,

        Are your summer months like Alaska with 20 something hours of sunlight and winters of about 5 hours worth?

        And do you ever drive over to the US side to visit?

        I live 5 minutes from the US border.  Can’t cross now,  though.  :(

        We have mild winters.  Usually doesn’t get below 27F.  Dry,  not too hot summers.  Daylight almost to 10 pm on June 21st.

        Very nice here but expensive.  My earthbound dream is to live in Ecuador and garden year round.  :)

        I think you will get your wish of being a farmer year round in the millennium kingdom. :yes:    And perhaps there are vegetable gardens up in heaven besides flower gardens. :whistle:    Just think no more weeds to pull, insects or critters to destroy the crop or fungus root rot …

        I just planted about 250 zinnias seeds in flower pots.  They are the early bloom so I should have flowers like this … by early June, if we are still here. ;-)

        Beautiful!  Gardening was the very first profession.  Jesus was also mistaken for a gardener.  :)

        Yes,  I yearn to garden with no thorns and thistles to contend with.  Perhaps in the Millennial Kingdom but definitely for all eternity.  :rose:

        Arthur, we will have to garden close by. What started as a hobby for me about 35 years ago, is a passion every growing season. I start looking at seed catalogs and readingb5he farmer’s almanac in November. Do seed planting during winter. I stared the garden after our frost is over on April 1. I’m a raised bed gardener, have 18 Earth boxes, 3 raised beds, and 8 pots (planting corn in pots for the first time). I just love being outside in the garden. Oh and I have the farm bug so bad that I do hydroponics with my “farms” throughout the year. There is not too much I don’t grow, veggie wise. Although, I didn’t start zucchini this year and I’m having a hard time finding starter zucchini plants this year. :unsure:
        Geri – love your flowers, I do plant some to ward off bugs, but that’s a lot you have. :good:
        If God sees fit to call us home soon, the garden and hydroponic plants are set up for someone or group of folks to have food for a while. The watering system should continue via the timer.
        praying to see everyone soon! :prayer-hands:

        Regina,  I live in Southern Vermont.  Parallel to Saratoga Springs, NY.  I used to shop there almost every Sat.  Northern Vermont reminds me of Lancaster, PA with the farms and more stores, restaurants and people.

        Yep, the maple syrup is mainly processed in the southern region because we have the red maple trees.  The northern part of the state has more white birch trees and pine trees so the foliage isn’t as spectacular up there.   My family used to buy the syrup directly from our neighbor down the road who has a sugar shack. It’s a lot cheaper than buying at the local grocery stores or tourist shops where they really jack up the prices for the out-of-staters. :negative:    I love maple candy.  On my waffles I prefer ice cream and I make ice cream sandwiches.  That’s a snack we learned from the boardwalks while growing up vacationing at the New Jersey Shore.  I do have a small bottle of syrup but I use it for cooking or baking.

      back to cover for the rapture…

      there are two main ferry options for us to get off this island. one that goes to the mainland by Vancouver has been cancelled for two months, and the other that is about 40 minutes away has had sailings cut and only half the passengers are allowed on now per sailing.  every other sailing time is cargo only.

      it has never been this way. some food is grown on the island, but ferries are needed to bring all kinds of goods to the island. float planes aren’t taking off in those waters in the picture. if the Lord takes us home while this is going on, the believers wouldn’t be so obviously missed.  most of the population would be left behind.

      my family is in the US, so if it wasn’t for the virus, I would be looking forward to have them come here or me there for visits. It’s mild weather on the island compared to the rest of Canada. It’s pretty much like Seattle weather and daylight here.

      I really think this is it with the results of the virus.  Whoever thought we would see Vegas dark and dead.  It is the heart  of Sodom and Gomorrah there and I believe the Lord shut it down for His coming!

      Also all the bars shut down.  God is beyond a genius (but we already knew that)

      And after all, God put restrictions on the people when He appeared at Mount Sinai:

      Exodus 19:

      10 And the Lord said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow. Have them wash their clothes 11 and be ready by the third day, because on that day the Lord will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people. 12 Put limits for the people around the mountain and tell them, ‘Be careful that you do not approach the mountain or touch the foot of it. Whoever touches the mountain is to be put to death. 13 They are to be stoned or shot with arrows; not a hand is to be laid on them. No person or animal shall be permitted to live.’ Only when the ram’s horn sounds a long blast may they approach the mountain.”

      14 After Moses had gone down the mountain to the people, he consecrated them, and they washed their clothes. 15 Then he said to the people, “Prepare yourselves for the third day. Abstain from sexual relations.”

      A friend just alerted me that  “Israel is set for a nationwide coronavirus lockdown in the lead-up to the Passover holiday.  The lockdown is set to take effect at 4 pm this afternoon, and to remain in force until early Friday morning.”  Geoffrey Grider @ NowtheEndBegins has an article about it called ”Saved by the blood: Israel gives the order for a nationwide Passover lockdown in stunning similarity to the first Passover and the destroyer”

      Staying on high alert all this week thru Sunday, Easter morning!   :popcorn

      The last time I felt so much Rapture excitement was Autumn 2015. It seems more likely to happen this time and I will be quite surprised if we are still here past Sunday. But even if we are, God is still in control and has all of this totally in His hands.

      I have been thinking about this verse all week long and Hoping around the house like a Bunny Rabbit with excitement … Mat 27:52  And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
      Mat 27:53  And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many . Each morning I receive a bible verse on my phone and it was this … Psa 27:14  Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.  Now I am Hopping a little higher today .. I pray our Blessed Hope is soon but if not I will continue to wait upon the Lord :prayer-hands:
