Covid 19 Help from a Llama

There is a very encouraging story from Jerusalem that has received little notice in America news. Wally the llama lives in Massachusetts, but analysis of his antibodies was conducted in a Hebrew University lab in Jerusalem.

Wally the llama’s antibodies, analyzed in J’lem, may help millions through COVID – They are highly potent,” says Israeli researcher who scrutinized the Massachusetts llama’s ‘nanobodies’ to pave the way for an inhaler intended to help patients fight virus.

Antibodies from a single llama that were analyzed in a Jerusalem lab could be replicated and help “millions” of coronavirus patients, scientists say.

Dina Schneidman-Duhovny of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem has examined the qualities of dozens of antibodies from a llama called Wally and identified which would best fight the coronavirus in humans.

The best candidates have been tested in vitro by her US-based colleagues with live coronavirus and human cells, and appear to significantly reduce the virus’s ability to infect cells.

As the llama antibodies are much smaller than human antibodies — they are often dubbed “nanobodies” — they are simpler and cheaper to replicate artificially. Researchers say they would not need to be taken intravenously, unlike human antibodies, and could be dosed via an inhaler, which is already being developed for clinical testing. (TOI / VFI News)

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says Yehovah, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

God continues to use Israel to be a blessing to the whole world. Thank you, Jesus!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for abundant seasonal rain. Also continue to pray for merciful and righteous judgement for the U.S. election.

After We Have Done Our Best

ELECTION LIMBO – What do we do now while the election is being litigated? While the various appeals go through the courts, we are allowed to appeal to the Highest Court. We appeal to Yehovah God and to His Son who sits on the throne. Yehovah has the final say!

This morning, after reading the latest news reports and social media opinions, I still did not have peace. Then the Holy Spirit reminded me of this declaration by King David of ancient Israel: “The judgments of Yehovah are true and righteous altogether.”

The fear of Yehovah is clean, enduring forever; ​​the judgments of Yehovah are true and righteous altogether.​​ More to be desired are they than gold, ​​yea, than much fine gold; ​​sweeter also than honey and the  honeycomb. ​​Moreover by them Your servant is warned, and in keeping them there is great reward. Psalm 19:9-11

After we have done our best – I believe President Trump did his best (Fourteen rallies in three days). I also believe I did my best in prayer (more than ever), speaking out (more than ever), and voting. When things are beyond our control, we can rest in the righteous decision of God. We now lay the final decision of the Presidency before the God of Heaven. His will be done!

Here is the full context of the Psalm 19 quote. Enjoy!

The heavens proclaim the glory of God.
The skies display his craftsmanship.
Day after day they continue to speak;
night after night they make him known.
They speak without a sound or word;
their voice is never heard.
Yet their message has gone throughout the earth,
and their words to all the world.
God has made a home in the heavens for the sun.
It bursts forth like a radiant bridegroom after his wedding.
It rejoices like a great athlete eager to run the race.
The sun rises at one end of the heavens
and follows its course to the other end.
Nothing can hide from its heat.
The instructions of Yehovah are perfect,
reviving the soul.
The decrees of Yehovah are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
The commandments of Yehovah are right,
bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of Yehovah are clear,
giving insight for living.
Reverence for Yehovah is pure,
lasting forever.
The laws of Yehovah are true;
each one is fair.
10 They are more desirable than gold,
even the finest gold.
They are sweeter than honey,
even honey dripping from the comb.
11 They are a warning to your servant,
a great reward for those who obey them.
12 How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart?
Cleanse me from these hidden faults.
13 Keep your servant from deliberate sins!
Don’t let them control me.
Then I will be free of guilt
and innocent of great sin.
14 May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing to you,
O Yehovah, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19 NLT

Verse 14 is my prayer today. How about you?

Pray for the the peace of Jerusalem, pray for President Trump, and pray and thank God for the seasonal rain now falling in Israel.
