  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

Seek only Jesus' elation, and this will make you strong.

    • “For we ourselves also were once foolish, disobedient, deceived, slaving for various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another.” (Titus 3.3).

    There is a time for all things (Ecclesiastes 3: 1-9), for example, a time of love (Ezekiel 16: 8). In the old days, we were all that is written in the above verse. And now? What time is this in which we are living?

    • “Hypocrites! You know to discern the face of the heaven and the earth, but how is it that you do not discern this time?” (Luke 12.56).

    Many times, people are carried away by things that made them elated. And the worst is that many time we are caught up in them, whether is because we need to supply our family, because our flesh loves it or we desire to catch up with what other people own, what it is contrary to the teachings of the Holy Scripture (1Peter 4.3,4).

    For us to have a whale of a time, we don’t need to goof around in vain diversions or get entangled in addictive entertainments. It’s sufficient to seek out what pleases Jesus and we will get force (Nehemiah 8.10) and beauty (Proverbs 15.13). After all, what time is it in which we are living?

    • “This also, knowing the time, that it is already time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we believed.” (Romans 13.11).

    31 of october, lamentably, populace commemorate Halloween (antagonizing Deuteronomy 18.9-12). On November second, people fete the Day of the Dead. And we? By any chance, are we celebrating, at all moments, the resurrection of Jesus Christ in our daily life, in everything that we live?

    Have a magnificent day in Christ Jesus and HURRY UP to do what it is good. Retrench time (Ephesians 5.16,17; Colossians 4.5). Do now what is important. Tomorrow, perhaps, you won’t have what you have now, or won’t be what you are, or, maybe, you or someone that you love won’t be here.
