    Drawing in crowds for a spectacle is as wanting to gain approval for the show.

    And such is the same when others are 'welcomed' to hear the Word of God.

    The inviters are not ashamed of what they have been hearing and so don't mind if they invite new spectators, per se, to 'enjoy' the same 'show' or message as they have been enjoying.


    And it is within these shows, messages, that the hearers learn of what The Messiah Christ is as. What is that 'message'? Is it a message of 'hope' or a message of endurance? Is it a message of being strong with fortitude? What could that 'message' be that the inviters seem so sure about?

    Well, nonetheless, if such spectators have been invited to a certain kind of 'show', message, and the theme has been the same throughout, then it wouldn't seem 'out of place' if the continuation of that 'message' continued. And some do enter into an arena where the message is one of strength and might and even exact retribution to wrong doing. And so when those involved in that show show themselves as being so, as driving out the villain and keeping the crowds safe, many can be led into believing that what they have seen and received is what The Truth actually is.

    This is not the case with The LORD and with God and with The Christ Messiah. Instead of 'driving' out the villains and wrong doers, they first need to show themselves the opposite. What do they do, how are they NOT wrong doers, how are they NOT villains, themselves? Because IF they do not show that they are NOT villains themselves, who's to say that they are not gathering a show to gain recruits to 'drive' out the non villains, the non wrong doers?

    And it is also like this... When a group of persons are unintentionally doing wrong, the 'righteous' ones do not 'drive' them out as if they have had opportunity to 'get better', even for themselves. Strangers do not 'drive' out members of another 'family' as if that person who is driving out, OWNS the entire area. But if any is to drive out persons, it can and has been done for other reasons. Such as in the case when true villains really do enter in a small community or such a case when a 'seller' of sex enters a small community. These have been shown to have been 'driven' out by the residents themselves. But as for any 'driving' out due to some preconceived notion that a person has 'wickedness' or 'wrong doing' in their life but unwilling to look to see if it might be detrimental to self yet not contagious like a 'epidemic', then for what reason would any seek to have them 'driven' out?


    What is a good remedy to 'contain' a non curable epidemic if the only 'cure' was for the individual to make that yes or no decision for self? If the only cure 'began' with that person's own choice and decision on the 'yes and no' available options, and if this person is part of the 'epidemic', what would occur if that person was allowed to NOT have to make any such decisions but was allowed to continue on all the while knowing that the condition he/she possessed was truly a virus of epidemic proportions?

    A disease outbreak happens when a disease occurs in greater numbers than expected in a community or region or during a season. An outbreak may occur in one community or even extend to several countries. It can last from days to years.


    It occurs when the 'containing' was not properly prepared for.. (when a disease occurs in greater numbers than expected)... expected.. known of but not prepared for....

    Epidemics, Pandemics, and Outbreaks of Contagious Diseases



    If Hawaii does not 'contain' this already existing virus which could lead to be of large scale, maybe even epidemic seeing that Hawaii is 'contained' already, being an 'island', and that if the disease did spread that it would truly be 'contained' in that 'small area', again an island, hence epidemic, then this spreading can continue, right? How else would it 'stop'?

    Hawaii continues to lead U.S. in number of antibiotic-resistant STD cases

    HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii has one of the highest rates of antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea in the country, according to staff at the Hawaii Health and Harm Reduction Clinic in Kakaako.

    The mutated sexually transmitted disease was first detected in the islands in 2016. And according to Jefferson Remo, the Hawaii health clinic's STD program coordinator — it's becoming increasingly difficult to treat.

    "We have a lot of people from southeast Asia who get treated, or they treat themselves with the wrong antibiotics," Remo said. "If you don't finish your antibiotics or if you're taking the wrong ones, what happens is that the bacteria is able to sort of mutate and build resistance."

    According to the Centers for Disease Control, 30 percent of new gonorrhea infections are resistant to at least one drug.

    "It creates a bigger problem of which medicines we are able to use because there is such a limited amount," Remo said.

    Now let us assume, hypothetically, that the spectators were called into some kind of 'show' or message but within this message or show, it called for the 'driving' out of all who were trying to 'help' 'contain' this virus rather than not.

    How would that 'show or message' be a Godly one?


    And yet there is another.. If a person knows with certainty that certain 'viruses' are within a community and if that person 'drives' on a continual basis against them, maybe that person who is 'driving' knows what he is doing. That 'driving' might not be against the persons but maybe against another 'thing' which only he or a few are or were made to be aware of. But for those who are part or within that 'infected' arena, they might not see it as such. They might find that 'driving' as if it were 'against' them and to 'who' they are..

    A person has to be wise and use wisdom when dealing with 'life'. Superstition can be a part of a person's life but that might be more for the 'spiritual ones', such as those that are into those sorts of 'spiritualisms'. As for the other side of 'life', practicality with skill and wisdom would be the more widely applicable and way to have cures or containings to be to the well being of the general public.


    There are mentionings of 'wisdom' and the 'like' in The Holy Bible. In the Old Testament and in The New Testament.

    The 'wisdom' in The Old Testament has to do with 'skill and practicality' in everyday situations.

    The 'wisdom' in The New Testament, or 'understanding' mentioned of in Revelation... 'let him who has understanding 'reckon' the number ...'...


    This sounds as if it is calling for 'wisdom'.. Although the 'wisdom' this is actually calling for is the type of 'wisdom' that deals with those 'other' sorts of spiritual pursuits.


    Looking into 'astrology' charts, looking at 'tarot' cards, etc.... for those who 'seek' to 'find' that 'man' whose number is .. etc etc etc.

    driving out anything.... asking yourself for what or for whom? For what 'love' being protected is that one/thing being 'driven' out? If there is nothing to be 'protected' then nothing needs to be 'driven' out.


    Personal suicide is similar. That person drives 'self' out of that situation. What might he/she be 'protecting' that he/she feels as if he/she needs to 'drive' self out? Maybe personal sanity? Maybe personal well being? Maybe personal 'hope'. Dying with a knowledge that there was over oppression in that 'place' is like 'dying' with something 'valuable'; that knowledge that oppression was rampant and that place was lacking 'justice'. This knowledge of 'Just and Oppression' is valuable.
