“OPEN UP OUR BORDERS ALREADY”
Governor, Lt. Governor, Chairman, Members of the Task Force for the COVID-19, and all of those behind the closing of the borders, especially with the Hawaiian Airlines to American Samoa.
As the world braces for the continued spread of the corona-virus, rarely before used terms like "Pandemic","Incubation Period", and "Quarantine" have solidified their place in the world today, including our beautiful island of American Samoa. This virus is the world issue including our beloved country of American Samoa.
It is sad to say, that none of the above, the so-called leaders of our government and the task force include any of our Church Leaders to the Task Force. They are equipped with Spiritual Wisdom and Knowledge from God to give biblical advice regarding this corona-virus issue. Our people are God fearing people and that's the reason why our country is COVID-19 free because it is our faith, belief and understanding that God is the ONLY ANSWER to this deadly virus. For your information according to the inspired Word of God, this corona-virus, all and any other viruses are the signs of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Read Mathew Chapter 24:
King Solomon prayed to God for His people of Israel, 2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin, and will HEAL THEIR LAND.
Death will come, whether we like it or not, and we don't know when it will strike, just like this corona-virus and the ONLY CURE for all of these is JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD AND SAVIOR.
We must prepare ourselves when that time comes as Ecclesiastes 9:10 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might, for there is no work, or device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
Instead of busting your brains to figure out the cure and an answer to this pandemic, we need to return to God as King Solomon did for his people.
As I stated that all the events written in the book of Mathew 24:1-14 have been fulfilled. After all there's another life beyond awaiting for us if we accept Jesus Christ our Lord and our Savior, John 3:16.
So open up the borders already and have our people enjoy their lives as usual before that time strikes.
God bless American Samoa.
