The White House is embracing discussion on controversial “Herd Immunity” of tackling the coronavirus. We should start at the beginning with a basic understanding of what is herd immunity and why is it important?
“Herd Immunity” takes place when a large percentage of the people in a community refer to as the “herd”, becomes immune to a disease, resulting in the possibility of spreading a disease from one person to another less likely.
As a consequence, the whole community becomes more protected — not just those who are immune.
Herd immunity can be reached through natural infection by allowing the virus to run its course until a sufficient number of people in the population have recovered from the disease and have developed antibodies against future infection.
It is a way to achieve mass immunity against an infection at a fast rate.
Why Is Herd Immunity Controversial?
The term “Herd” used to describe human is scoffed at as derogatory way to describe people. Also many looked at it as a risky move to intentionally expose 60-70 per cent of young and healthy population of a region to the novel coronavirus believing that their immune systems can develop antibodies against the pathogen and help them become immune to it.
Top medical adviser to US President Donald Trump is urging the White House to embrace a controversial “herd immunity” strategy to combat the pandemic.
This approach will entail allowing the coronavirus to spread through most of the population to quickly build resistance to the virus, while taking steps to protect those in nursing homes and other vulnerable populations, according to five people familiar with the discussions. Read full story here….
Our heavenly Father, the God of the universe who is the God of love. You are the one who created and instituted family. Your word tells us in Genesis chapter two that you are the God who created male and female and cause them to come together and live as husband and wife.
“And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.
And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.”
Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
You the God of love commanded the man to love his wife as stated in Ephesians 5:25 “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.”
And we thank you Lord God of this nation of (Jamaica) that true love covers a multitude of sin. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” – (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)
We thank you Almighty God, El Shaddai, who is, was, and is to come the everlasting God, who never change. You are the same yesterday, today, tomorrow and for evermore.
You see the wisdom in your will when you said to human whom you have created to be fruitful, multiply and replenish the earth.
Therefore, as written in your word according to Psalm 127: 3-5 …..children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.”
We thank your for the spirit of obedience in our children. Because it is in their obedience that they will prosper, experience good health and have long life. As it is recorded in Ephesians 6:1-3 “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise),that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.”
We declare Almighty God that the fear and reverence of God will come back into the hearts of the people of this nation of (Jamaica). Every household will pray to the God of heaven, read their Bible and worship as a unit and within the body of Christ.
We decree and declare that only two genders, male and female will be established in the nation. Only two genders will be taught to our children in the schools in this nation in the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
We declare that every child born in this nation will know himself or herself as a male or female, and there will be no confusion in this God-given role in which to operate.
We decree and declare that true genuine Agape love will dwell in, and emanate from the hearts of fathers and mothers of our children. Therefore, we condemn and cancel the spirit of incest, we cancel the spirit of rape, we cancel the spirit of adultery, we cancel the spirit of fornication, we cancel the spirit of every form of sexual immorality.
Our Father, we speak into the lives of fathers in this nation. Every man who has sown a seed into a woman and brought forth a child, will stand up as a man and live up to his responsibility as a father in Jesus name.
Fathers will forsake the gambling dens, fathers will abandon the rum bars, fathers will walk out of the forbidden home where he is stealing love on the side and come home. Come home to love and care for his family in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
These irresponsible fathers will know that the eyes of the Omnipresent God is watching and making notes of their activity. And they will realize that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
I declare that family life education will be taught in the schools, in the church and in the homes according to the will and plan of God.
I declare that as families grow in love, unity and in the knowledge of God, dangerous gangs will be destroyed, abandoned children will come to an end, mentally ill persons will disappear from our streets and live in their God-given mind and spirit in Jesus Name.
Family will play together, pray together, live together in good times and bad times. Every family will depend on and trust in God as their source, their deliverer, their shield and buckler, and never allow the enemy the devil to destroy the unit of the family.
The devil’s job is to steal, to kill and to destroy family, but I declare in the name of Jesus that this nation of (Jamaica) will never become a victim to the devil’s strategies.
Every family in this nation shall love and fear God, and the name of the Lord Jesus shall be on the lips of every citizen in Jesus Name.
I declare that salvation will come to every household in this nation of (Jamaica), and there will be a mass revival and a national transformation for righteousness in the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
More people will turn away from evil, shame the devil, and exalt the Messiah.
I declare that more people shall turn to God in this land of beauty, the devil will be terrified, the family will be edified and God of heaven will be glorified in Jesus name, so let it be.
Our Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus we come to you on behalf of our economy. You are the only good, true and living God who is the creator and preserver of all things. All things were created by You and for your pleasure they are created.
This nation of (Jamaica) will not go under, we will not suffer for lack, because it is in You we live and move and have our being.
You are the same God of yesterday, today and tomorrow. The same God of Joseph during the time of Pharaoh King of Egypt. When there was an impending famine, you selected a man to prepare for seven years of famine.
As your Word says in Genesis 41: 33-57: – “Now let Pharaoh look for a man discerning and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt. Let Pharaoh take action to appoint overseers in charge of the land, and let him exact a fifth of the produce of the land of Egypt in the seven years of abundance.
Then let them gather all the food of these good years that are coming, and store up the grain for food in the cities under Pharaoh’s authority, and let them guard it.read more.
Let the food become as a reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which will occur in the land of Egypt, so that the land will not perish during the famine.”
Now the proposal seemed good to Pharaoh and to all his servants. Then Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find a man like this, in whom is a divine spirit?” So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has informed you of all this, there is no one so discerning and wise as you are.
You shall be over my house, and according to your command all my people shall do homage; only in the throne I will be greater than you.” Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.”
Then Pharaoh took off his signet ring from his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand, and clothed him in garments of fine linen and put the gold necklace around his neck. He had him ride in his second chariot; and they proclaimed before him, “Bow the knee!”
And he set him over all the land of Egypt.
Moreover, Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Though I am Pharaoh, yet without your permission no one shall raise his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.” Then Pharaoh named Joseph Zaphenath-paneah; and he gave him Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of On, as his wife. And Joseph went forth over the land of Egypt.
Now Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh, king of Egypt.
And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh and went through all the land of Egypt. During the seven years of plenty the land brought forth abundantly. So he gathered all the food of these seven years which occurred in the land of Egypt and placed the food in the cities; he placed in every city the food from its own surrounding fields.
Thus Joseph stored up grain in great abundance like the sand of the sea, until he stopped measuring it, for it was beyond measure.
Now before the year of famine came, two sons were born to Joseph, whom Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of On, bore to him. Joseph named the firstborn Manasseh, “For,” he said, “God has made me forget all my trouble and all my father’s household.”
He named the second Ephraim, “For,” he said, “God has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction.” When the seven years of plenty which had been in the land of Egypt (Jamaica) came to an end, and the seven years of famine began to come, just as Joseph had said, then there was famine in all the lands, but in all the land of Egypt (Jamaica) there was bread.
So when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried out to Pharaoh for bread; and Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, “Go to Joseph; whatever he says to you, you shall do.”
When the famine was spread over all the face of the earth, then Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold to the Egyptians; and the famine was severe in the land of Egypt.
The people of all the earth came to Egypt (Jamaica) to buy grain from Joseph, because the famine was severe in all the earth.
We declare that this nation of (Jamaica) will be blessed because we obey the voice of God, we obey the commands of God. We love, reverence, respect and venerate the God of Moses who wrote in the book of Deuteronomy 28: 1-13:
“And if you faithfully obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth.
And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God.
Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field.Blessed shall be the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your herds and the young of your flock.Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.
“The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you. They shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.The Lord will command the blessing on you in your barns and in all that you undertake. And he will bless you in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.
The Lord will establish you as a people holy to himself, as he has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in his ways.
And all the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you.
And the Lord will make you abound in prosperity, in the fruit of your womb and in the fruit of your livestock and in the fruit of your ground, within the land that the Lord swore to your fathers to give you.
The Lord will open to you his good treasury, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hands. And you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.
And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you shall only go up and not down, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, being careful to do them”.
We will continue to be the head and never the tail, we are going up, not down, we are victors not victims in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
I declare and decree that we are blessed and being abundantly blessed by God who revealed Himself through His Son Jesus Christ as recorded by the Apostle John in the book of Revelation 1: 1….
“The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who bore witness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw.
Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near. John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth.
To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood……” Hallelujah !
We will always remember to look to you our Jehovah Shammah, we trust in you always because it’s You Lord our God, who gives us power to get wealth, that You may confirm Your covenant that You swore to our fathers, as it is this day.
And we will use our wealth to advance your kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven. We recognize that everything we possess comes from you. As Ecclesiastes 5: 19 says “Everyone also to whom God has given wealth and possessions and power to enjoy them, and to accept his lot and rejoice in his toil—this is the gift of God”.
We will not fear, we will not be afraid, because our God is our rock, our strength, our strong foundation, our defense, our provider, and all our needs are supplied. Because Jehovah Rohi is our shepherd, we shall not want any good thing.
I declare that the economy of this nation of (Jamaica) will grow in double digits every year. The people will become more industrious. Entrepreneurship will become the normative activity in every community in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
Natural resources will be discovered in the earth in this blessed land, because we believe and embrace and live your word as recorded in 2Chronicles 7: 14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Your word is forever settled in heaven oh Lord, and we are confident that you who have started a good work in us, will carry us to its completion.
At the same time we will be careful to manage our possession and not let our possession manage us. As we heed the words of Jesus who said, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
Instead we will obey your word as recorded in Proverbs 3: 9-10 “Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.”
Thank you Lord for hearing the cry from our hearts, and the prayer from our lips, so that this nation of (Jamaica) under God will increase in beauty, fellowship and prosperity, and play her part in advancing the welfare of the whole human race in Jesus Name, so let it be, so it is and so shall it be.
The second angel blows his trumpet and “something like a great mountain, burning with fire,” is thrown into the sea. We discuss the evidence from scripture and the extrabiblical Book of Enoch to show why this is not a meteorite or an asteroid, but an angel sent to bring judgment to Earth.
Revelation 8 introduces us to “the seven angels who stand before God,” who blow the trumpets heralding a new set of judgments to come upon the earth. We speculate that these angels may be the seven archangels named in the Book of 1 Enoch, representing the belief of Jews during the Second Temple period.
Then we begin our study of the first trumpet judgment of hail and fire mixed with blood. This echoes the plague of hail and lightning that devastated Egypt (Exodus 9:22-25) and explain why “hail” (Barad) and “thunderbolts” (the reshephim) may be a “company of destroying angels” (Psalm 78:48-49) as well as a natural disaster.
We dig deeper into the exclusion of Dan from the list of twelve tribes in Revelation 7, and we note that a belief that the Antichrist would come from Dan dates back to within two generations of the apostle John. (Note: The excerpt Derek read was from the Treatise on Christ and Antichrist by Hippolytus, a student of Irenaeus. While Irenaeus also wrote that the Antichrist might come from Dan, what Derek read was not from that book.)
Then we explain why we believe the multitude that appears before the throne in Rev. 7:9 is evidence that supports the “earthquake resurrection” theory proposed by David W. Lowe.
After the earthquake that accompanies the opening of the sixth seal, four angels are directed to hold back the winds and refrain from harming the earth until the servants of God are sealed with the Father’s name on their foreheads.
We discuss the 144,000 from the twelve tribes of Israel who will be sealed, whose role is further explained later in Revelation, and why the tribes of Ephraim and Dan are excluded from the list.
We discuss the souls under the altar and the connection between the opening of the sixth seal, the Day of the Lord, geological evidence that the earth literally split in the distant past, and divine judgment that literally divides the earth.
Jamaica For Jesus Christ Of Nazareth – Freedom Come!
Everyone wants to be FREE! But no one can be totally free! There has to be boundaries, restrictions, limitations, or conditions for operating and living your life.
Many of us fool ourselves to believe we are free since slavery was abolished in Jamaica in 1834.
The most important area in our lives we should be liberating is spiritual liberty of freedom. To be spiritually free, we become slaves to righteousness. Living to do what is right is the highest level of freedom a human being can achieve.
Jamaica for Jesus Freedom Come Ministry is about releasing the people and setting them free from spiritual bondage. Spiritual freedom can only be experienced in and through Yeshua Hamashiach.
Jamaica For Jesus Freedom Come started by the leadership at the Tarrant Baptist Church at 51 Molynes Road Kingstom 10 Jamaica.
The Radio station (TBCRadio) is the main vehicle carrying the move of God lead by the pastor Apostle Jeffery Shuttleworth.
The mission of the movement is to bring back Jamaica from the unrighteous and ungodly path, by saturating the seven pillars of the nation with prayer to honour God.
This is being accomplished by taking the nation one community at a time until the whole nation is affected, which will flow into the region and the world.
We started with a mass gathering in Half Way Tree in November 2017, where the Honorable Prime Minister lead the nation in a Prayer of repentance.
The freedom come movement continues to gather momentum and made its presence felt in different parts of the nation, like Montego Bay, May Pen, Lionel Town, Rocky Point, Spanish Town and other places where a one day saturation of prayers and declarations destroying the kingdom of darkness and establishing the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom of Light.
The movement staged its first community evangelist outreach in Port Royal (The Royal Port) from November 2018 to February 2019.
An event that should last for one week, turned out to over ten weeks of Holy Ghost revival in Port Royal.
From Port Royal the Freedom come train made the next stop in Waterhouse St Andrew. Another record time from April to June 2019.
From Waterhouse the Freedom Come Train moved over to the Sunshine City of Portmore, and the first stop was at the Climate Change Park from October 2019 to January 2020.
Freedom Come Climate Change Park Portmore November 10, 2019, Pastor Devon Johnson
The Freedom Come Gospel Train Remained in Portmore, but at a different location in Newland and Southborough Communities intersection. The Coronavirus outbreak disrupted the smooth flow, however, as a result, other outreach arms were created under God.
The first outgrowth was the Freedom Come Morning Blitz. A team of persons goes into a strategic location in a community early in the morning a proclaim the gospel message and invite persons to Christ.
Another tool to reach people is the SWOT team. This is also a group of intercessors who target communities all over the island and use portable bill boards to advertise the gospel and current events that is of serious consequence within the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
The next big and great event was the launch of the Newspaper called “Freedom Come Rain“. The launch was on Saturday August 1, 2020, at the historic location at Emancipation Square in Spanish Town.
