The Plague

We’re Not Ready for the Next Epidemic… GatesNotes.com |Bill Gates | 3.18.2015“…this epidemic [Ebola] has been, the next one could be much worse. The world is simply not prepared to deal with a disease—an especially flu, for example—that infects large numbers of people very quickly. Of all the things that could kill 10 million people or more, by far the most likely is an epidemic.But I believe we can prevent such a catastrophe by building a global warning and response system for epidemics. It would apply the kind of planning that goes into national defense—systems for recruiting, training, and equipping health workers; investments in new tools; etc.—to the effort to prevent and contain outbreaks.”

THE MOMENT OF TRANSFORMATION 
Genesis 17:7 “I (God) will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you.”Definition of Covenant: The covenant is an agreement between God and His people. God sets the terms, He makes the offer, and we respond to it with either cooperation or resistance. The covenant means to pledge or bind oneself by irrevocable terms.  

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COVENANT
Contract – Operates in the Natural World Covenant – Operates in the Spiritual World 

THE DANGER OF A COVENANT WITH THE ENEMY 
Joshua 9:3-4 “…when the inhabitants of Gibeon heard what Joshua had done to Jericho and Ai, they worked craftily, and went and pretended to be ambassadors.” Joshua 9:14-15 “…they did not ask counsel of the Lord.  So Joshua made peace with them, and made a covenant with them to let them live; and the rulers of the congregation swore to them.” DANGER TODAY: Making a Covenant with Fear  
OPPORTUNITY: Turn your fear into your servant Joshua 9:27 “And THAT DAY Joshua made them woodcutters and water carriers for the congregation and for the altar of the Lord…”
