Sometimes a win isn’t seen – and when it goes unrecognized we fail to give God the glory.
The deadline for mandated vaccines keeps getting changed and pushed back. And Glory to God it IS a WIN!!! And we know the battle has already been won! As we learned from Shadrech, Meshech and Abendigo – the big win may be found within the fire. Fear not, though, because we are on the winning team.
I have some encouragement for everyone.
I know I am getting into controversial area. I try to avoid those. So let me lay down some ground rules for this post:
1. I love you. And I love the lost, hurting, unsaved, unchurched, and ungodly. And I love truth. Anyone who has followed for a while knows my heart – but for those who do not let me bear my love. God is love and wishes that all come to know Him – so I ask God to use me to reach people with the news that He wants a relationship with them, and teach those who have a relationship more about Him – so they can get to know Him better. It is out of this love that I speak. I see people in spiritual life or death situation and I need to let them know – it is serious.
2. I do not care if you are pro-vax or anti-vax. I love you and your opinion does not matter. Nor do I care if you received the vax or not – God has a solution for BOTH PROBLEMS. Yes both are problematic – in differing ways. So do not comment with your opinions on this – because we are not talking about opinions. I am only talking the word of God in relation to idolatry, sorcery and the spirit of fear.
3. Stop talking and take action. Prayer warriors are needed. A nation of humbly repented people is so necessary.
“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.“ 2 Chronicles 7:14 NKJV
“IF” and if we do not we will not be healed or as a nation delivered from this oppression (and the oppression that will come).
Those are the rules – if you agree, then please continue reading.
Dear Heavenly Father – As always, please open eye to see and our ears to hear what you are saying! Lord – open our understanding that we may know you and give us wisdom. Please do not let us miss out on what you want and need from us today. Lord, I pray that your word prepares us and not scares us! We forbid the works and influences of fear over your word. And please keep us and bless us and shine your face upon us and pour out grace over us and give us peace! Thank you! – In Jesus name we pray, Amen
In those days, in a time such as this, in perilous times… the end days.
– now to explain and be very clear: we are living in the end times. Jesus himself said the age was coming to an end then in a famous discussion with His Disciples on the Mount of Olives (in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21) Jesus describes the signs to watch for so we will know. Jesus implies and stated that things will progressively get worse. But if Jesus and authors of the New Testament (along with the fulfillment of signs) say it is the end times – then it still is the end times and all the more late!
Also – end of the age not the end of the world as the Bible says. No we are not in the tribulation. I do not think you and Karen will be having coffee waiting for the kids soccer practice to end and complaining about how unfair this sinful world is – is the definition of the tribulation. I love you – so I need to tell you: it will be more like North Korea around here during the tribulation and you will not have a copy of the Bible on your phone.
“The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived.” Revelation 18:23
So this verse in Revelation speaks of the end times. And our times are dark times, full of deception and lies. Bride and bridegroom? Do I need to pull statistics on the rapid decrease in marriages? No one bothers with a wedding when they can live together. And who are these Merchants?
Does anyone else think it is weird how business men have so much influence and say over this pandemic? Bill Gates and other wealthy business men were in the news broadcasts telling everyone what to do early on… like they aren’t an expert or anything why are they telling us what to do? And then… the great merchants of Big Pharma with their vax.
So let me break this out further – they have offered a savior. I love you – so I must tell you Jesus Christ is the one and only savior. Their savior had a higher probability of death and complications that can lead to death than the original illness. Jesus Christ is a flawless savior who has healed more people then can be counted – and not one failed healing attempt by Jesus has ever been recorded.
So – FIRST OF ALL – the Vax is a false Christ and a false savior as we see:
“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘Look, He is there!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. But take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand.” Mark 13:21-23 NKJV
Have the very elect been deceived? Yes and it breaks my heart.
And for further proof let us look at the word sorcery – φαρμακείᾳ (pharmakeia). It is a noun – Dative Feminine Singular – from Strong’s 5331: Magic, sorcery, enchantment. From pharmakeus; medication, i.e. magic. Moreover a vaccine.
That alone is the premise of the story of Shadrech, Meshech and Abendigo. Which we have read and studied at least 3 times on this blog, which is not even 2 years old. So in the last 2 years this story has been prevalent enough in our daily lives to grab a post or two at 3 different times.
Now – there are multiple reason’s to get a religious exemption and the reason’s in the exemption do not address what I believe is the most important reason – do not bow to false gods. (I know you do not actually think it is a god – and the three Hebrew boys did not think the statue was really a god either. We do not believe in other gods. But we ALSO do not bow to them!)
The fact that babies that were sacrificed to the gods of Humanism (aborted) were used in the development of the vax is pretty devastating. Among them strong spiritual leaders and men and women of God which He had made and purposed and given life! Humanism took those lives and changed their purpose. Oh Lord – forgive our people, forgive us Lord!
The fact that the Bible says not to put poison in the body – because we are the temple. The most horrific crimes against God are the ones we do inside ourselves, inside His temple. Oh lord, forgive us. Our insides should be sealed off and set apart for Him, He loves you and wants you to be pure and clean and have a good life. He has a plan of love.
What if you have ignorantly taken the vax – you hear it wasn’t the mark of the beast (it isn’t) and so you accepted it into you. FIRST OF ALL STOP IGNORING IT AND POSTS LIKE THIS. Second – there is therefore now no condemnation – you are not condemned. You are loved. God is trying to love you through this. So what if you missed the mark – come back to love! Pray for forgiveness – repent and weep and fast and pray. Seek God fervently! You will find it harder to do than ever before and it is because that demon has a stronghold which you ignorantly gave him. Repent! God wants you back – and He wants ALL of you.
“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Mark 16:17-18 nkjv (which was our memory verse challenge a few month ago – God has prepared us.)
You intake the vax (drink the poison) it will by no means hurt you – but you better be working in the great commission like the verses before says and you better be in the prayer closet and studying the word – cause these follow those who are 100% submitted and in this! It is doable – we can get through this – let’s do it!
What if your spirit bore witness and said NO – but you did anyway. You do not have little faith – you have none. Let us call it what it is – you honestly do not trust that your heavenly Father provides your every needs. You do not believe He has a plan. You do not believe in Him. Read Malachi again – you will see. That seems harsh? It was hard to say – but you need to wake up to the lies you tell yourself. We all need to.
So, you must either stop lying to me and to the world and saying you are a Christian and Christ saved you – because you saved yourself your way. Your flesh acted out of fear and unbelief influence by the demon of fear and the seduction of the spirit of pharmakeia.
What is your solution if you want to return to God? Well that is also in Malachi. Repent and seek Him. Pray for forgiveness – repent and weep and fast and pray. Seek God fervently! You will find it harder to do than ever before and it is because that demon has a stronghold which you ignorantly gave him. Repent! Grace has limits and shall not be abused – but God loves you so much, so very much that he has open arms for you!
Now – for those who are about to lose your job because you will not take the vax – here is some encouragement.
God is good (even in the fire)
If you have been reading this blog for a while you know I had my “I will not serve two masters” moment and “will not bow (to the governor of New York State)” moment months ago.
I worked in health care regulatory compliance – supporting the facility with understanding and applying regulations in daily tasks. Then the pandemic hit and New York Governor just started throwing around regulations like he was king, lawmaker and executioner. My job shifted from support, to policing in order to ensure new policies were implemented. I began to resist and to push back even. I found the unemployment line quite quickly after that. I chose what was right and God led me here. It is too glorious to give the enemy credit for.
Let me say that again for those who missed it: GOD led me to being unemployed. My joblessness was of GOD. It was His divine plan. It was a gift directly from HIM! All GLORY TO HIM!
I may not have understood it then – but I trusted my God and gave Him Glory them and give Him Glory for it right now! The world calls it bad – but in my situation the Lord called it GOOD and gave it to me.
Upon arrival in the unemployment line I learned my identity was stolen and false claim was already happening in my name. It took a long time to prove I was me and for them to figure it out what they were doing. And God was right there showing me other things. (That is right – focus on Him and he shows you other things, not the problems.)
My brother had been telling me to get into leather working for years and I was telling Him to expand his leather business into earrings for years. A few days after losing my job I started noticing women wearing big fun earrings and I felt so low – I thought those would help me hold up my head again. I was in no position to buy any earrings. To hurry this along – I decided to make them and went to the leather store. At the leather store the owner gave me a bunch of colors of scrap leather and he recalled my brother telling me to go into business in leather and told me it was time that I did. I went home and in my craft supplies I had the jewelry finishings to make earrings – lots of earrings. So I did.
I went to a friend of mine who is a lawyer and said I needed an LLC can we trade services? She said yes. I drafted legal documents for her in exchange for an LLC/EIN. Within a couple weeks I had free supplies and a free name and business. All I needed was a website.
That was when my lawyer friend asked for more help in exchange she’d pay the website for a year. Boom! Like that – I was in business for free because God provides for me.
But wait there is more! The day I lost my job I had signed up for a low cost class on how to have a craft business online. I signed up because I always thought I would do a crafty type business – I just couldn’t figure out what craft to do that wouldn’t bore me quickly. The class was a sales funnel to a higher cost monthly subscription class with a Facebook group – I knew it when I started and was prepared to turn down the offer – but the Christian ladies in the group enjoyed working with me and they paid for me to join the next step. So now I had information and lessons and support from Christian women. God did not just say ‘go have a business’ but he gave me all the education and tools I needed to do it. My God is never done until it is exceedingly abundant!
And now the business is 5 months old. And already doing better than most of the business that started with me. But it doesn’t hit the level of sales I need to be paid from the business and live off of. And I have no more unemployment. Does God take us this far to drop us? Did I make a wrong turn? Did God actually intend for me to just do that on the side and find a “real job”? It becomes dark when you start to think like that and listen to people who ask those questions. Darkness is NOT of God. My God speaks light and life. My God is able to finish what He started. He is able to redirect me and He did not. He was able to give me a job out in the corporate world (in case you did not know, to be on unemployment you must job hunt and attend job fairs and there are not that many jobs out there to my surprise with everyone saying they are short staffed – big signs that say we are hiring, but when you go in they have only one position. The staffing shortage is also a lie – wake up! They are short staffed, but they are not filling positions. So God had the opportunity to land me a job and He did not.)
This is where the rubber hits the road. This is when you really actually overcome by the word of your testimony!!! Here is my testimony: MY GOD PROVIDES! I have not gone without. I have not gone without! I have not gone without!!! I have food. I have clothing. I have dog food. I have a roof over my head. I have my bills paid. I have a mighty God! I have because MY GOD REIGNS!
I am not an imposter – God never said he was going to provide this month through my new business…. That was ME who said that and disappointed myself. MY GOD STILL PROVIDED. I had enough in my savings. Was it comfortable to use my savings? NO – GOD DID NOT PROMISE COMFORT! HE PROMISED PROVISIONS! And He provided. All Glory – All honor – All power and All praise to Him!!!
I am happier and I enjoy myself. I have more time to read the Bible and study. I have more time to worship. My God is still a God of exceedingly Abundant!
So – if you are about to lose your job. I know how you feel and it is all sorts of wild ride feels. I could have chosen to comply with the regulations. I chose righteousness. If I was in the workforce now looking at these mandates – I wouldn’t chose the right choice, because I would have already failed at the last one. I understand where you are at. I had to make hard choices that I knew would land me without a job. But I had to do what was right. God sent me ahead to be able to wave back at you and show you – I am still alive! The bills are paid! Including the gym membership! Yes, even the extras are still in place and I go to the gym and fellowship with other believers! Hallelujah!
Obey the spirit of the Lord and step into complete surrender. Give Him your ability to be provided for and let God be God and do what He is famous for. Let God use signs and wonders – let him stir them to follow you, as it is written in Mark 16. Be the person He called you to be and fulfill His purpose that he lovingly created for you.
Esther says: if I die, I die.
Be like Esther! And then look at me – here I am – not just surviving – doing it with all sorts of extras and God is all sorts of glorified!
Now let us pray for the military with 46% refusing the shot! God, please keep them, sustain them, and be glorified in and through them! Let us pray for the hospitals especially in NY – the world is creating a crisis worse than covid.
While some nations have changed the classification of it to that of a common cold – the USA is literally crippling their military and health. And not everyone sees that this is an evil plot! Oh Lord, open eyes and understanding.
Look at the state of things we are on the edge of – we lose almost half of our military but then plan to use them to staff the loss at our healthcare facilities?!?! I know I see God, posed, and ready to move powerfully. We must submit to His plan and will to see the big move we have been waiting for = https://www.npr.org/2021/09/26/1040780961/new-york-health-care-worker-vaccine-mandate-staffing-shortages-national-guard?fbclid=IwAR06tbZAl7WBv2umm9qd-nyE35pj8V2l5j_6e1SxIFziqfI9HvfYyhMuY_c
I love you – be encouraged. God’s ways are not our ways and His plans are for you (not against you). He did not promise it would be comfortable – it is uncomfortable in the fire – but He joins you in there. He will NEVER leave you or forsake you.
I love you – be saved. There is only one who can save you and heal you and keep you – it is Jesus not a Vax. The vax is seductive – do not be seduced. Jesus will not manipulate or seduce you – he will give you the truth. He is the ONLY Savior. Repent and be saved have a closer relationship with Him.
Do you have a relationship with God?
Do you know the powerful God cares about your every need because He loves you? Did you know my God can communicate with you and protect you – He has a plan for you to prosper if you just submit to His will and let His plan play out in your life!!! God wants a relationship with you and has already made a plan for your life. He loves you so much He sent His son to this world, to die as a sacrifice for your sins and rise from death with victory over sin and the ability to have a personal relationship with you.
“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. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” Romans 10:9-10 NIV
Here is a prayer for you to pray:
Jesus, I believe you are the way, the truth, the life, and the only way to the Father. I believe you are the son of God, you came to Earth and lived. That you died on the cross as a sacrifice for my sins, and rose again so that I may be saved from my sins and be able to get to know you. I declare: Jesus, you are Lord!
Therefore, I confess that I am a sinner and I ask that you forgive me of my sins and come into my life. Help me to turn away from my sins and transform me into what you have lovingly created me to be. Help me through a real personal relationship grow and accept your will for my life – that I may live in your blessings. Please walk with me, and talk with me – I accept a relationship with you and with our Father God, through you. In the name of Jesus I pray ~ Amen
