      Virus-hit Wuhan has two laboratories linked to Chinese bio-warfare program
      Virology institute there has China's only secure lab for studying deadly viruse
      ---------------------
      Here is more info from reddit user DodgeyEdgey:
      Here you go. In 2015 there was a test done at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. It was headed by Ralph Baric. https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/lab-made-coronavirus-triggers-debate-34502 The purpose of the lab test was to manipulate a bat coronavirus to see if it could infect humans. It was discovered that it could. https://www.nature.com/articles/nm.3985 
      One of the people who co wrote the paper was a Chinese researcher by the name of Xing-Ye Gi. Google scholar shows Gi has written or co-written numerous papers on SARS, ebola and coronavirus. https://scholar.google.co.uk/scholar?as_q=&num=10&btnG=Search+Scholar&as_epq=&as_oq=&as_eq=&as_occt=any&as_sauthors=%22Xing-Yi+Ge%22&as_publication=&as_ylo=&as_yhi=&as_allsubj=all&hl=en Gi works in Wuhan.

      The Trump administration will impose a fresh round of sanctions on 11 individuals, including Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam, as tensions between the United States and China accelerate.
      The Treasury Department designated Lam for her role in overseeing and “implementing Beijing’s policies of suppression of freedom and democratic processes.”

      couple things to put in perspective.
      we have only eradicated 2 diseases from the planet, smallpox and rinderpest.
      the bubonic plague is still around. there was another case this year in the us. antibiotics have rendered the once greatest plague in history almost an afterthought.
      H1N1 was the common flu strain in 2018. that is the same viral lineage that spawned the spanish flu of 2018 and swine flu.
      these plagues continually fade away and resurface. So yes, covid will fade, but it may come back a later date. the key is keep an eye out for aggressive strains, and take appropriate actions to contain them.

      The truth is that this pandemic could still potentially be in the early chapters.  The Spanish Flu pandemic lasted for three full years, and we could possibly be facing a similar scenario.
      And this week WHO official Mike Ryan warned that this virus could even become “endemic”, and if that happens it “may never go away”

      In other words, Ryan is saying that this virus could become like a flu that keeps reappearing year after year.
      So what are we going to do if that happens?
      Are we supposed to have shutdowns every year whenever a new wave of COVID-19 infections starts happening?

      genetic analyses of the virus have not found any substantial changes which would effectively disguise it from the immune system.

      There was a twitter rumor going around in the last 48 hours that Zhengli SHI the chief scientist from the Wuhan institute of virology who used to study the different bat coronavirus, that she escaped China and is currently in Europe, specifically in France with her family seeking asylum and protection in the us consulate there.
      The same rumor also mentions that she has thousands of documents with her showing that the virus in need come from the lab (though she herself publicly denied this couple of months back when the lab leak runour started spreading likely due to CCP pressure).
      Since all this is rumor we have to take it with a grain of salt, however if this were true and she essentially becomes and whistleblower and defector from China with information that can prove the criminal negligence (or intentional) by the CCP, this can lead to the fall of the CCP as we know it and radical change to CCP vs the world relations.

      "Morning worship announcement at Bethel.
      In the United States, 9,000 of our brothers have contracted the Corona Virus, 2,500 have recovered, 563 are hospitalized and unfortunately 219 have fallen asleep to death.
      This was mentioned April 14, 2020 in the morning worship in New York's bethel.  It was asked that this be shared with the brothers so that we continue to pray for the entire association of brothers and understand the reason that the governing body has taken the measures that have been taken so far.  Cheers!"

      Coronavirus is not the end of the world’By Manolo
      20th April 2020 By Manolo Gatt
      Jehovah’s Witnesses all around the world have reacted quickly to stop the spread of the Coronavirus. Since the initial stages of this, now pandemic, rigorous measures have been taken including the suspension of all public religious activity including large assemblies as well as local meetings usually held in Kingdom Halls.
      Locally, working very closely with the Civilian Contingencies Committee, we have implemented all recommended measures as and when required including the suspension of our main activity of going from house to house and public witnessing with our recognisable trolleys.
      However, we have been using other means at our disposal such as video conferencing to continue to “meet together”, thus encouraging one another whilst also continuing, to the extent possible, to receive much needed spiritual instruction and comfort.
      We of course continue in our determination to fully collaborate with the health authorities, which we thank for their invaluable work, as we endure these challenging times.
      Please note that our website, JW.org, is open to everyone, where you can find encouraging and up building information for all age groups, including Bible-based movies which are very practical for our days.
      In the meantime, our younger members are helping out as volunteers and are offering themselves to help their neighbours and the elderly going to supermarkets, pharmacies and taking them to the hospital to the doctor when they have an appointment.
      We also very much take into consideration the needs of the deaf and the blind by providing them with programmes transmitted by video conference to their own homes in sign language by a team of translators and also Braille publications for those who need them.
      Finally, although some people may say that Jehovah’s Witnesses are saying that the coronavirus is a sign of the end of the world, the fact is that we would never make such an affirmation.
      What then? According to the Revised Standard Version (Catholic Edition), Jesus, responding to a question asked by his inquisitive disciples: “Tell us [
] what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?” Jesus answered, and we are quoting only in part: “There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences (epidemics)” (Luke 21:7, 11).
      So it would be wrong to say that the Coronavirus is the sign of the end of the world. The truth is that epidemics and diseases have plagued and continue to plague the human race. As we all know humanity has been plagued in recent times, like “the Spanish flu” (1918-1919), that killed more than 40 million persons, the ‘simple flu’, that every year causes the death of between 250,000 and 500,000. Or aids that has infected more than 76 million persons and caused the death of 35 million with deceases related to this ailment. Only in 2016 1.8 million died because of Aids.
      Therefore, what can certainly be said is that we are living in the time Jesus foretold when he answered his disciples question.
      However, anyone that aims to take advantage of such a tremendous situation as the one we are experiencing today, so sad and tragic with its many deaths and economic instability, to frighten or intimidate the people that are our neighbours, does a great disservice to the real message of hope that the Bible highlights and Jesus taught us to pray for, saying: “Let your Kingdom come”.
      That hope is the promise of a better world that everyone can aspire to where God Himself “will wipe away every tear from our eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things shall pass away.” And they will pass away. The Kingdom of God will accomplish this. (Matthew 6:9; Apocalypse 21:4; RSV Catholic Edition).
      That is why Jesus wanted everyone to know about this, so he told his disciples that: “this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14).
      This is the true essence of real Christianity.

      France and Australia first reported a spike in domestic violence figures since the outbreak of COVID-19 and issue of stay-at-home orders. Research has shown that a forced domestic life and isolation only spurs domestic violence within the household, considering factors like financial stability and unemployment which are both rising concerns during the pandemic.

      Dr. Joshua D. Raninowitz, M.D., Ph.D told ABC News, “When you get exposed to the virus, your immune system immediately starts mounting a response. At the same time the virus starts spreading within the body. An outcome depends on which wins the race, viral spread? or the immune response? When you start with a high dose of virus, it gives it a head start in the race.” Dr Rabinowitz was the NIH Pioneer Award recipient in 2016 and is a researcher and professor at Princeton University (scholar.princeton.edu/rabinowitz).

      I have noticed many friends seem to be stressing about the acquisition of the memorial symbols during the coronavirus lockdown. There have been quite a few discussions on social media and in person.
      These discussions were mainly regarding the necessity for memorial symbols if such became troublesome to purchase and if no one in the household was a partaker. The elders sent out information, one  of which was the 85 WT 2/1/ p. 31 "question from readers" (
      Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. )which says in part: "On occasion, raging storms or floods have prevented a congregation, or some of its members, from meeting together as planned. In rare cases, martial law has been in effect with armed soldiers barring citizens from being out-of-doors after sunset. Other Christians have not been able to be at the congregation’s celebration because of being hospitalized or seriously ill. What can be done in such instances?
      While it is fitting for the whole congregation to unite for this important event, circumstances such as noted above may make that impossible. When extreme weather, a natural disaster, or the like, absolutely prevents a family or a portion of a congregation from meeting with the congregation, the isolated ones can meet and discuss Scriptural accounts such as found in Luke 22:7-23, 28-30 and; 1 Corinthians 11:20-31, as well as discussing the meaning of the occasion. Similarly, if an enforced curfew makes it impossible for a congregation to gather on the appropriate night, meeting in Congregation Book Study groups or neighborhood groups might be the best alternative, the sum of those in attendance serving as the congregation’s attendance report. A brief talk may even be given if a capable, dedicated brother is in the group. There need not be concern that no suitable emblems are available as long as no one in this emergency situation previously partook of the bread and the wine as an anointed Christian".
      It made me think about the whole topic a little bit more. To observe the memorial was a command by Jesus for the anointed, and as far as I am aware, there is nothing in the Bible commanding the great crowd to observe it, even as spectators. However, at the beginning, before the great crowd was identified, all were partakers. After that, the emblems kept being passed, and those who were anointed partook, and those who were not obviously didn't. Fast forward to today, in a congregation setting, even if we "know" that currently no one partakes, that can change. So while all the anointed are not sealed yet, we cannot assume, and stop passing along the emblems on the account that we think no one is anointed in our congregation. No one is asked beforehand if they are going to partake, that only becomes evident when the emblems reach them, and they eat the bread and drink the wine. That way, no one is put on the spot. Of course, on top of that, since we are one flock, and we support the anointed in everything, we observe the memorial with them, as spectators, and also to show appreciation for what Jesus did for us. But, under lockdown circumstances if we know for sure no one is going to partake in our family, then there is really no need for the emblems. That's how I see it anyway. But some prefer to have the emblems to help them visualize things better. Although we are supposed to be walking by faith, not by sight...😀
      I like how our website puts it: "The purpose of the Lord’s Evening Meal is to remember Jesus, showing our gratitude for his sacrifice in our behalf. (Matthew 20:28; 1 Corinthians 11:24) The observance is not a sacrament, or a religious practice that imparts merit such as grace or the forgiveness of sins. * The Bible teaches that our sins can be forgiven, not by a religious rite, but only through faith in Jesus".—Romans 3:25; 1 John 2:1, 2.
      Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Unfortunately, it seems like some are viewing the memorial as some kind of religious ritual, and are even going to pass the emblems among themselves as if touching them somehow makes all the difference....Because I come from a Catholic family, I find this kind of reasoning a little disappointing...
      Also, I don't know if anyone has listened to the memorial talk, the brother says that Jehovah's Witnesses would risk their lives to be at the memorial. In view of all the above, isn't that statement a little far fetched?
      Any thoughts?

       the title is inaccurate. According to la Repubblic the 40 didn't test positive to the antibody tests, but rather to antigen tests.
      Edit:
      Antigen is a part of the virus (think a protein in the virus’ capsule). If that’s present the infection is likely still ongoing.
      Antibody is your body’s defense.
      ——————-
      Keep in mind that an ANTIBODY test can be made for 2 types of antibodies: IgM (short term immediate defense) or IgG (long term defense).
      If you’re negative for IgM but positve for IgG, you’re probably immune. If you’re positive for IgM but negative for IgG, you’re probably still dealing with the infection.
      SO: You can only be sure that an asymptomatic patient won’t develop symptoms if they’ve overcome the infection - and that is measured by IgG+IgM, not by single antigen test.

      Pets cannot carry the coronavirus, experts have said, after authorities in Hong Kong quarantined a dog and pledged to isolate more.
      The Hong Kong quarantine is the first reported case anywhere in the world of a government restricting pets over the outbreak.
      The canine, a Pomeranian, has been placed in quarantine for 14 days as a precaution but has no "relevant symptoms", Hong Kong officials said.
      "Nasal and oral cavity samples tested weak positive for COVID-19," a government spokesman said without explaining why they tested the animal in the first place.
      He said it was unclear whether the dog had actually contracted the virus or tested positive for low levels due to environmental contamination of the dog's mouth and nose.
      The animal was collected from the owner's home on Wednesday after the 60-year-old woman was diagnosed with the contagion and placed in a hospital isolation ward.
      It would be closely monitored, undergo further tests and held in quarantine until it returned a negative result, authorities said.
      There is no evidence domestic animals such as dogs and cats can catch the virus or transmit it to humans but the department said all pets of infected people should be quarantined and tested for the virus for 14 days.   However, Professor Jonathan Ball, a molecular virologist at Nottingham University, said testing the dog was a “red herring”.

      So these were pictures of people collapsing were posted on social media in the past few days til yesterday (2/23) but no mention in the news. This makes sense because there is no freedom of press in South Korea and everything gets censored. (I know this first-hand because I worked in public radio for half a year in Seoul) The situation may be even worse than what is reported considering these photos are all in very recognizable spaces in Seoul, not Daegu. What's crazy is that I have personally walked by all of these areas shown on this pictures as have most people from Seoul. As of this moment only 31 people are confirmed to have SARS-COV-2 in Seoul.

      I thought this was pretty interesting, as I was unaware of how common pneumonia really is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epidemiology_of_pneumonia#United_States
      Given that there are about 1.86M emergency room encounters with pneumonia per year, consider that everyday over 5000 patients show up with pneumonia in US ERs.
      Goes to show how difficult it must be to separate signal from noise when it comes to early detection of COVID19 cases in the absence of mass testing!
      Further, I was unaware of how deadly regular non-COVID19 pneumonia already is, with 5%-10% of all hospitalized patients dying: https://www.medicinenet.com/pneumonia_facts/article.htm

      According to the Heraldo portal, a 48-year-old female tourist landed at Toncontin Airport. She flew from Los Angeles with a transfer in Honduras. She reportedly was recently on vacation in Taiwan.
      The woman showed symptoms such as cough, runny nose, and sneezing, so the tourist was sent to a specialized hospital in the capital of Honduras, Tegucigalpa, where she is now under surveillance.
      According to a deputy health minister, if the test results after 48 hours confirm the disease, the woman will be isolated.

      Ceux qui me haĂŻssent sans raison
      sont plus nombreux que mes cheveux.
      Ceux qui voudraient me supprimer,
      mes ennemis sournois, sont devenus nombreux.
      J’ai Ă©tĂ© forcĂ© de rendre ce que je n’avais pas volĂ©.
      Ô Dieu, tu connais ma bĂȘtise,
      et ma culpabilitĂ© ne t’est pas cachĂ©e.
      Que ceux qui espùrent en toi n’aient pas honte à cause de moi,
      Î Souverain Seigneur, Jéhovah des armées !
      Que ceux qui te recherchent ne soient pas humiliés à cause de moi,
      ĂŽ Dieu d’IsraĂ«l !
      Car je subis la honte pour toi ;
      l’humiliation me couvre le visage.
      Je suis devenu un inconnu pour mes frĂšres,
      un Ă©tranger pour les fils de ma mĂšre.
      Le zÚle pour ta maison brûle en moi,
      et les insultes de ceux qui t’insultent retombent sur moi.
      Je me suis humilié en jeûnant,
      ce qui m’a valu des insultes.
      Je me suis habillĂ© d’une toile de sac,
      et je suis alors devenu pour eux un objet de mépris.
      Les gens assis Ă  la porte de la ville parlent de moi
      et les ivrognes font de moi le thĂšme de leurs chansons.
      Mais que ma priùre vienne jusqu’à toi,
      ĂŽ JĂ©hovah, en un temps oĂč tu y es favorable.
      Dans ton immense amour fidĂšle, ĂŽ Dieu,
      réponds-moi par tes infaillibles actes sauveurs.
      Sauve-moi de la boue ;
      ne me laisse pas m’enliser.
      Sauve-moi de ceux qui me haĂŻssent
      et des eaux profondes.
      Ne laisse pas le courant m’emporter,
      ni les profondeurs m’engloutir,
      ni le puits fermer sa bouche sur moi.
      RĂ©ponds-moi, ĂŽ JĂ©hovah, car ton amour fidĂšle est bon.
      Dans ton abondante miséricorde, tourne-toi vers moi
      et ne détourne pas ton attention de ton serviteur.
      Réponds-moi vite, car je suis dans la détresse.
      Approche-toi de moi et sauve-moi ;
      rachĂšte-moi Ă  cause de mes ennemis.
      Tu sais qu’on m’insulte, qu’on me couvre de honte et qu’on m’humilie.
      Tu vois tous mes ennemis.
      L’insulte m’a brisĂ© le cƓur, et la blessure est incurable.
      J’espĂ©rais de la compassion, mais rien ;
      des consolateurs, mais je n’en ai pas trouvĂ©.
      Ils m’ont plutĂŽt donnĂ© pour nourriture du poison,
      et pour apaiser ma soif, du vinaigre.
      Que leur table devienne pour eux un piĂšge ;
      et leur prospérité, un filet.
      Que leurs yeux s’obscurcissent pour qu’ils ne voient pas,
      et fais trembler leurs hanches constamment.
      DĂ©verse sur eux ta fureur,
      et que ton ardente colĂšre les atteigne.
      Que leur campement soit désert ;
      qu’il n’y ait pas d’habitants dans leurs tentes.
      Car ils poursuivent celui que tu as frappé,
      et ils ne cessent de raconter les souffrances
      de ceux que tu as blessés.
      Ajoute de la culpabilité à leur culpabilité,
      et ne les considĂšre pas comme justes.
      Qu’ils soient effacĂ©s du livre des vivants
      et qu’ils ne soient pas inscrits avec les justes.
      Moi, je suis affligé et je souffre.
      Que ton pouvoir de sauver, ĂŽ Dieu, me protĂšge.
      Je veux louer le nom de Dieu par des chants
      et je veux le glorifier par des remerciements.
      Cela plaira Ă  JĂ©hovah plus qu’un taureau,
      plus qu’un jeune taureau ayant des cornes et des sabots.
      Les humbles verront cela et s’en rĂ©jouiront.
      Vous qui recherchez Dieu, que votre cƓur reprenne vie.
      Car JĂ©hovah Ă©coute les pauvres
      et il ne méprisera pas son peuple captif.
      Que le ciel et la terre le louent,
      les mers et tout ce qui y vit.
      Car Dieu sauvera Sion
      et rebĂątira les villes de Juda ;
      son peuple y habitera et le possédera.
      Les descendants de ses serviteurs en hériteront
      et ceux qui aiment son nom y résideront

      L'amour de JĂ©hovah nous modĂšle vers l'excellence de notre ĂȘtre 
      Ô JĂ©hovah, tu es notre PĂšre. Nous sommes l’argile, et tu es notre Potier ; nous sommes tous l’Ɠuvre de ta main. Isaie 64 :8  » Un potier a le pouvoir de faire avec l’argile le rĂ©cipient qu’il dĂ©sire. L’argile n’a pas son mot Ă  dire. Il en va de mĂȘme de l’homme par rapport Ă  Dieu. Il n’est pas plus en droit de contester les actes de Dieu que l’argile du potier, qui, de ses mains, lui donne forme (lire JĂ©rĂ©mie 18:1-6).
      JĂ©hovah a montrĂ© sa capacitĂ© d’agir sur l’IsraĂ«l antique comme le potier agit sur l’argile. Nous notons cependant une grande diffĂ©rence. Le potier peut transformer sa motte d’argile en n’importe quelle sorte de rĂ©cipient. Mais JĂ©hovah façonne-t-il arbitrairement les personnes, ou les nations, faisant les unes bonnes et les autres mauvaises ? D’aprĂšs la Bible, ce n’est pas le cas. JĂ©hovah a dotĂ© l’homme d’une facultĂ© trĂšs prĂ©cieuse : le libre arbitre. La maniĂšre dont il exerce son autoritĂ© souveraine ne nous prive pas de cette facultĂ©. Chacun doit dĂ©cider s’il se laissera façonner par le CrĂ©ateur (lire JĂ©rĂ©mie 18:7-10).
      Et si un humain refuse obstinĂ©ment de se laisser modeler, comment le Grand Potier exerce-t-il son autoritĂ© ? Pense au sort d’une argile qui devient impropre Ă  l’usage que le potier veut en faire. Eh bien, il peut soit en faire un autre rĂ©cipient soit la jeter ! Toutefois, quand l’argile est inutilisable, c’est gĂ©nĂ©ralement de la faute du potier. Mais en ce qui concerne notre Potier, ce n’est jamais le cas (Deut. 32:4). Quand une personne ne cĂšde pas au modelage de JĂ©hovah, c’est toujours de sa faute Ă  elle. Le Grand Potier exerce son autoritĂ© sur les humains en s’adaptant Ă  la maniĂšre dont ils rĂ©agissent Ă  son modelage. Ceux qui rĂ©agissent bien sont façonnĂ©s en rĂ©cipients utiles. Par exemple, les chrĂ©tiens oints sont des « vases de misĂ©ricorde » qui ont Ă©tĂ© façonnĂ©s en « rĂ©cipient[s] pour un usage honorable ». En revanche, ceux qui s’opposent obstinĂ©ment Ă  Dieu finissent par ĂȘtre des « vases de colĂšre devenus dignes de destruction » (Rom. 9:19-23).
      JĂ©hovah modĂšle les humains notamment en les conseillant ou en les corrigeant. Voyons comment il exerce son autoritĂ© sur ceux qu’il façonne en nous intĂ©ressant aux deux premiers rois d’IsraĂ«l : SaĂŒl et David. Quand David a commis l’adultĂšre avec Bath-ShĂ©ba, il a causĂ© du tort tant Ă  lui-mĂȘme qu’à d’autres. JĂ©hovah ne s’est pas retenu de le reprendre avec fermetĂ©, il fut ainsi avec les hommes qui furent sous Sa direction. Par le prophĂšte NathĂąn, il lui a adressĂ© un message sĂ©vĂšre (2 Sam. 12:1-12). Comment David a-t-il rĂ©agi ? TouchĂ© en plein cƓur, il s’est repenti et a bĂ©nĂ©ficiĂ© de la misĂ©ricorde divine (lire 2 Samuel 12:13).
      Par contre, SaĂŒl, le roi qui a prĂ©cĂ©dĂ© David, a mal rĂ©agi aux conseils. Par l’intermĂ©diaire du prophĂšte Samuel, JĂ©hovah lui avait formellement ordonnĂ© de vouer Ă  la destruction tous les AmalĂ©qites et tout leur bĂ©tail. Mais SaĂŒl a dĂ©sobĂ©i. Il a Ă©pargnĂ© le roi Agag ainsi que les meilleures bĂȘtes. Pourquoi ? Notamment pour s’attirer des louanges (1 Sam. 15:1-3, 7-9, 12). Quand il a Ă©tĂ© conseillĂ©, il aurait dĂ» ĂȘtre mallĂ©able, se laisser façonner par le Grand Potier. Mais il a rĂ©sistĂ©. Il s’est justifiĂ©, prĂ©textant qu’il avait agi Ă  bon droit parce que les bĂȘtes seraient offertes en sacrifice. Il a minimisĂ© le conseil de Samuel. Il a donc Ă©tĂ© rejetĂ© par JĂ©hovah. Il ne mĂ©ritait plus d’ĂȘtre roi et n’a jamais retrouvĂ© de bonnes relations avec le vrai Dieu (lire 1 Samuel 15:13-15, 20-23).
      DIEU N’EST PAS PARTIAL
      JĂ©hovah offre la possibilitĂ© d’ĂȘtre façonnĂ© non seulement Ă  des individus mais aussi Ă  des nations. En 1513 av. n. Ăš., les fils d’IsraĂ«l, libĂ©rĂ©s de l’esclavage en Égypte, sont entrĂ©s dans une relation d’alliance avec Dieu. Étant sa nation choisie, IsraĂ«l avait l’honneur d’ĂȘtre modelĂ© par lui, d’ĂȘtre en quelque sorte sur le tour du Grand Potier. Cependant, le peuple n’a pas cessĂ© de faire ce qui est mauvais aux yeux de JĂ©hovah, allant mĂȘme jusqu’à rendre un culte aux dieux des nations voisines. Maintes et maintes fois, JĂ©hovah a envoyĂ© des prophĂštes pour le ramener Ă  la raison, mais il n’a pas Ă©coutĂ© (JĂ©r. 35:12-15). Son obstination lui a valu d’ĂȘtre sĂ©vĂšrement repris. Comme des « vases » devenus « dignes de destruction », le royaume du Nord, formĂ© de dix tribus, et celui du Sud, formĂ© de deux tribus, ont Ă©tĂ© vaincus l’un par l’Assyrie et l’autre par Babylone. Quelle leçon puissante ! Nous ne tirerons profit du façonnage de JĂ©hovah qu’à condition de bien y rĂ©agir.
      Jéhovah a également offert aux habitants de Ninive, la capitale assyrienne, la possibilité de tenir compte de ses avertissements. Il a dit à Jonas: « LÚve-toi, va à Ninive la grande ville, et proclame contre elle que leur méchanceté est montée devant moi. » Ninive était vouée à la destruction (Jonas1:1, 2 ; 3:1-4).
      Cependant, quand Jonas a annoncĂ© son message de condamnation, « les hommes de Ninive se mirent Ă  avoir foi en Dieu ; ils proclamĂšrent alors un jeĂ»ne et se revĂȘtirent de toiles de sac, du plus grand d’entre eux au plus petit d’entre eux ». Leur roi « se leva de son trĂŽne, ĂŽta son vĂȘtement officiel de dessus lui, se couvrit d’une toile de sac et s’assit dans la cendre ». RĂ©ceptifs Ă  la tentative de modelage de JĂ©hovah, les Ninivites se sont repentis. JĂ©hovah n’a donc pas fait venir le malheur sur eux (Jonas 3:5-10).
      Bien qu’étant une nation choisie, IsraĂ«l n’a pas Ă©tĂ© exemptĂ© de la correction. Les Ninivites, quant Ă  eux, n’étaient pas dans une relation d’alliance avec Dieu. Pourtant, JĂ©hovah leur a adressĂ© un message de condamnation et leur a fait misĂ©ricorde quand ils sont devenus de l’argile mallĂ©able entre ses mains. Ces deux exemples ne prouvent-ils pas que JĂ©hovah « ne se montre partial envers personne » ? (Deut. 10:17).
      JÉHOVAH EST RAISONNABLE ET SOUPLE
      La maniĂšre dont Dieu est disposĂ© Ă  nous modeler indique qu’il est raisonnable et souple. TĂ©moin des situations oĂč il prononce des jugements justes mais les rĂ©vise ensuite selon la rĂ©action des concernĂ©s. Au sujet du premier roi d’IsraĂ«l, les Écritures dĂ©clarent que JĂ©hovah a « regrett[Ă©] d’avoir fait rĂ©gner SaĂŒl comme roi » (1 Sam. 15:11). La Bible dit encore que, lorsque les habitants de Ninive se sont repentis et sont revenus de leur voie mauvaise, « le vrai Dieu regretta le malheur qu’il avait parlĂ© de leur causer ; et il ne le causa pas » (Jonas 3:10).
      Le terme hĂ©breu traduit par « regretta » se rapporte Ă  un changement de point de vue ou d’intention. JĂ©hovah a changĂ© de point de vue Ă  l’égard de SaĂŒl : il l’avait choisi pour ĂȘtre roi, mais il a fini par le rejeter. Ce changement s’est produit non parce que JĂ©hovah avait fait un mauvais choix, mais parce que SaĂŒl a manquĂ© de foi et est devenu dĂ©sobĂ©issant. Le vrai Dieu a Ă©prouvĂ© du regret dans le cas des Ninivites : son intention Ă  leur Ă©gard a changĂ©. Quel rĂ©confort de savoir que JĂ©hovah, notre Potier, est raisonnable et souple, compatissant et misĂ©ricordieux, prĂȘt Ă  rĂ©viser son jugement quand un transgresseur se rĂ©forme !
      NE REJETONS PAS LA DISCIPLINE DE JÉHOVAH
      Aujourd’hui, JĂ©hovah nous façonne principalement par sa Parole, la Bible, et par son organisation (2 Tim. 3:16, 17). Ne devrions-nous pas accepter tout conseil ou toute correction que nous recevons par ces moyens ? Quelles que soient les annĂ©es que nous avons passĂ©es Ă  servir Dieu, ou nos attributions de service, continuons d’accepter les conseils de JĂ©hovah, laissons-nous façonner en vases pour un usage honorable. 
      Le Grand Potier est notre PĂšre. Et ne l’oublions jamais, « celui que JĂ©hovah aime, il le reprend, comme un pĂšre reprend le fils en qui il prend plaisir ». Alors, « ne rejettons pas [...] la discipline de JĂ©hovah, et n’ayons pas son blĂąme en aversion » (Prov. 3:11, 12).

      BĂątissons chaque but de notre vie avec amour
      L'homme à toujours chercher le sens véritable de l'amour. L'homme réfléchissant à cette vertu, il sépara cette qualité en trois phases et uni en une seule.  Les millénaires passÚrent et l'homme à compris que les trois phases de l'amour sont des étapes que l'on ne peut trépasser.
      La premiĂšre partie est appelĂ©" L'Éros."
      L'Ă©ros fut le premier chemin que Dieu entama dans son Esprit ( pensĂ©e en action) (verbe) intĂ©rieur avant de faire ce monde magnifique que nous vivons. L'Éros est le feu qui nous anime dans le dĂ©but d'une pensĂ©e qui nous traverse l'esprit.
      L'Amour Ă©ros est une Ă©nergie trĂšs puissante, car d'elle, d'une seule image non rĂ©alisĂ©e, l'Ă©ros active cette image en rĂȘve, uni à notre pensĂ©e et propulse dans notre vision, un rĂȘve ultime qui nous pousse Ă  chercher au fond de nous, le sentiment qui nous anime puissamment.
      Nous recherchons en nous d'autres images pour connaitre d'avantage cette vibration qui se manifeste, telle un feu ardent.
      D'un rĂȘve, l'amour de ce but te pousse à crĂ©er et fonder ce rĂȘve dans ta rĂ©alitĂ©, construire le but ultime de ta vie.
      La flamme de Yah, s'anime en toi ( Chant de Salomon)
      Le désir sexuelle ne fait pas parti de cet Amour.
      L'Éros te propulse dans tout les cĂŽtĂ©s des variantes d'un but non rĂ©alisĂ©, dont tu ne connais point comment construire ce but qui s'anime en toi; et mĂȘme comment pourrais-je rĂ©aliser ce but?
      Quand le rĂȘve d'un projet d'avenir est dans l'Éros, il ne faut pas qu'il devienne en nous une obsession intense. Nous ne savons pas comment contrĂŽler notre feu intĂ©rieur de ce but, de cette vision qui anime nos pensĂ©es, jour aprĂšs jour et souvent dans les images de notre sommeil, elles peuvent envahir nos nuits.
      L'amour " Éros" nous confrontes Ă  plusieurs dĂ©sirs qui nous anime et qu'avec le temps nous apprenons Ă  assembler le casse tĂȘte de la rĂ©alisation de notre vie, les piĂšces maĂźtresses de notre rĂȘve qui nous poussent sans cesse Ă  trouver les outils et l'instructions nĂ©cessaires Ă  notre cheminement qui s'accomplit pendant une grande pĂ©riode de notre vie, pour atteindre l'objectif premier de notre vie, le vrai but que nous voulons accomplir.
      Quand notre but est assemblĂ©, telle un film intĂ©rieur, de sa premiĂšre image (dĂ©but), Ă  son dĂ©nouement et cela jusqu'Ă  son accomplissement , alors notre rĂȘve se voit construit dans notre esprit alors nous sommes prĂȘt; nous pouvons commencer la deuxiĂšme Ă©tapes de l'amour qui construit notre but.
      L'AMOUR PHILIA UNE ÉTAPE TRÈS IMPORTANTE DE L'AMOUR
      La connaissance de l'amour apporte Ă  rĂ©aliser le rĂȘve de notre but vers la rĂ©alisation de notre projet en ce monde au bonheur de chacun.
      Les Ă©tapes de rĂ©alisation de chaque but, doit ĂȘtre construit avec l'Amour philia Ă  (suivre)...
