I wondered whether the Santa-looking-guy in the red jogging suit was a random guy on the street or an extra. But then I told myself he had to be an extra because it was too coincidental that he was dressed in all red like that. Funny to learn he wasn’t an extra after all.

THE GOSPEL MESSAGE The God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob. Jesus is his name. Jesus died on the cross for ALL our sins. If you choose by your own free will to believe that He did that for ALL of us sinners, YOU then shall know that YOU have life eternal in heaven...just BELIEVE ,that IS our faith. The word gospel means “good news,” which is the message of forgiveness for sin through the atoning work of Jesus Christ. It is essentially God’s rescue plan of redemption for those who will trust in His divine Son in order to be reconciled to a just and holy God. The essential content of this saving message is clearly laid out for us in the Bible. In the apostle Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, he lays out the content of the gospel message, “Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are SAVED, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). In this passage, we see three essential elements of the gospel message. First, the phrase “died for our sins” is very important. As Romans 3:23 tells us, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” The reality of sin needs to be acknowledged by all who approach the throne of God for salvation. A sinner must acknowledge the hopelessness of his guilt before God in order for forgiveness to take place, and he must understand that the “wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). Without this foundational truth, no gospel presentation is complete. Second, the person and work of Christ are indispensable components of the gospel. Jesus is both God (Colossians 2:9) and man (John 1:14). Jesus lived the sinless life that we could never live (1 Peter 2:22), and, because of that, He is the only one who could die a substitutionary death for the sinner. Sin against an infinite God requires an infinite sacrifice. Therefore, either man, who is finite, must pay the penalty for an infinite length of time in hell, or the infinite Christ must pay for it once. Jesus went to the cross to pay the debt we owe to God for our sin, and those who are covered by His sacrifice will inherit the kingdom of God as sons of the king (John 1:12). Third, the resurrection of Christ is an essential element of the gospel. The resurrection is the proof of the power of God. Only He who created life can resurrect it after death, only He can reverse the hideousness that is death itself, and only He can remove the sting that is death and the victory that is the grave’s (1 Corinthians 15:54-55). Further, unlike all other religions, Christianity alone possesses a Founder who transcends death and who promises that His followers will do the same. All other religions were founded by men and prophets whose end was the grave. Finally, Christ offers His salvation as a free gift (Romans 5:15; 6:23), that can only be received by faith, apart from any works or merit on our part (Ephesians 2:8-9). As the apostle Paul tells us, the gospel is “the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile” (Romans 1:16). The same inspired author tells us, “If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9). These, then, are the essential elements of the gospel: the sin of all men, the death of Christ on the cross to pay for those sins, the resurrection of Christ to provide life everlasting for those who follow Him, and the offer of the free gift of salvation to all. Jeremiah 29:13 King James Version 13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

(Natural News) David Steinman, an American economist nominated for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize, has called for the World Health Organization‘s (WHO) director-general, Tedros Ghebreyesus, to be prosecuted for genocide. In a complaint filed at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Steinman has accused Ghebreyesus of supporting genocide in Ethiopia by being a crucial decision-maker about the actions of security forces in the country. Steinman said these actions involved killing, detaining and torturing many indigenous people, such as those that belong to the Amhara, Konso, Oromo and Somali tribes. To back up his allegations, Steinman cited a 2016 U.S. Government report on human rights in Ethiopia. That report found that local police in rural areas and local militias sometimes “acted independently.” Additionally, the report mentioned “other undocumented crimes” allegedly enacted by Ethiopia’s security forces. Steinman, who served as a senior foreign adviser to Ethiopia’s democratic movement more than two decades ago, also accused Ghebreyesus of playing a part in the “intimidation of opposition candidates and supporters,” including their arbitrary arrest and lengthy pre-trial detention. Steinman’s case will proceed if prosecutors choose to adopt it. Ghebreyesus denied the allegations. He stated last month in response to his alleged involvement with a rebel group that he is on “the side of peace.” Ghebreyesus allegedly backs rebel groups Ghebreyesus served as Ethiopia’s health minister from 2005-2012 and was one of three officials in charge of national security forces between 2013-2015. He served as the country’s foreign minister in 2016 and became the WHO’s director-general in 2017. He is the organization’s first leader since its inception not to be a doctor. Ghebreyesus is no stranger to controversy. Just last month, Birhanu Jula, a general with the Ethiopian army, accused Ghebreyesus of helping the rebel group Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) procure weapons. In a televised statement, Jula alleged that Ghebreyesus is a member of the TPLF and a criminal, arguing that Ghebreyesus has worked in neighboring countries to get weapons. He also called for Ghebreyesus to be removed from the WHO. Although Jula did not offer any evidence to substantiate his allegations against Ghebreyesus, it is relevant to note that the WHO director-general was health minister when the communist TPLF ruled Ethiopia. Nonetheless, Western diplomats in Geneva said that because of the lack of evidence, there was no rush to try Ghebreyesus or move to challenge him at the WHO. Conduct during coronavirus pandemic Jula’s televised allegations and Steinman’s formal complaint against Ghebreyesus came hard on the heels of U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to have the U.S. withdraw from the WHO amid the pandemic. “The position of the White House is that the WHO needs to reform,” said Nerissa Cook, the deputy assistant secretary of state for the Bureau of International Organization Affairs. Cook added that the organization can begin its reform by demonstrating its independence from the Chinese Communist Party. (Related: Japanese VP: The WHO should be renamed the ‘Chinese Health Organization.’) Trump’s decision to withdraw also means the U.S. will no longer pay its dues, which amounts to $60 million. The withdrawal will take effect in July 2021. Trump also instructed his administration to halt funding and to wind down cooperation with the organization. In August, just a month before Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the WHO, Ghebreyesus had said he hopes the U.S. will reconsider its plan to leave the organization. Ghebreyesus added that the problem with the U.S. is not about the money. “It’s actually the relationship with the U.S. that’s more important.” Read the latest updates on the coronavirus pandemic at
