Category: National Health Care


Here is something to consider, about Obamacare (these provisions were in the prior plan, and I don’t see any reason they would not also be in this plan–no one seemed to have a problem with them):

  • This MANDATORY health care plan will involve every man, woman, and child in the US.
  • All of the personal, financial, and medical information for every man, woman, and child in the US can be kept in a file in this one system.
  • This system gives the government 24/7  access to your bank accounts.
  • Our friendly IRS will be responsible for all of this.
  • A national healthcare ID card will be required.

Here are some of MY OPINIONS, based on those facts:

  • It would be easy to monitor who had received vaccinations, and who had refused.
  • It would be simple to institute mandatory vaccinations.
  • It would be simple to require contraceptive injections for certain populations or individuals.
  • It would be simple to require any type of medication for anyone, as deemed necessary (Such as meds. for people who are diagnosed as schizophrenic, bipolar, psychotic, etc.; are obese, have high cholesterol, etc.)
  • It would be simple to calculate an individual’s ‘net worth to society’.
  • It would be very simple to revalue the currency.
  • We could quickly go to a cashless society.
  • Banks (except for a ‘National Bank’) could be eliminated.
  • You could be locked out of the financial system by opting out of the healthcare plan.
  • With all your personal  information in the system, every payment from the government (Social Security, SSI, welfare, foodstamps, tax refunds, etc.) could be routed through this system and direct deposited into your bank account.
  • With all your personal  information in the system, every payment due to the government (many mortgages, student loans, taxes, etc.) could be directly debited from your bank account.
  • If desired, your wages could be instantly garnished, your accounts could be easily frozen.
  • Legal judgments against you could be set up on automatic payment plans, without needing your consent.
  • Child support and alimony could automatically be transferred between parties, according to court orders.
  • If you won a case against someone in court, whatever they owe you could be set up to transfer to you automatically, according to whatever payment plan the court decided.
  • If you declared bankruptcy, the court could have payments made to your creditors automatically.
  • More personal information (DNA samples, eye scans, fingerprints) could, at some point, be a mandatory part of the plan.
  • The National Healthcare ID Card could become required for all financial transactions.
  • Until Radio Frequency chips were included in the cards, they could be used as a passcard in order to enter any kind of a business or government building, at tollbooths, when boarding airplanes, etc. thus ensuring our whereabouts were known most of the time.

SELLING POINTS THEY WOULD PROBABLY USE

Improved Health

  • Everyone would have access to healthcare.
  • Outbreaks of everything from food poisoning to plagues could be identified and tracked, and their origins determined.
  • If an outbreak began, it would be easier to determine who had been exposed,  and to quarantine all who are at risk of having been exposed.
  • Outbreaks could be prevented by enforcing mandatory vaccinations.
  • Abortions could be prevented by enforcing mandatory birth control until a certain age.

Efficiency and Savings

  • Financial, and other, transactions could be much more efficient if all of the information on each of us was in one location.
  • Your taxes could automatically be deducted from each paycheck and transaction, and eventually eliminate the need to file at the end of the year.
  • Businesses would save money by not having to deal with collecting sales tax or managing ‘payroll taxes’.
  • Welfare, foodstamps, etc. could be automatically and efficiently calculated, adjusted, and deposited.

A Fairer System

  • ‘The wealthy’ couldn’t hide assets anymore.
  • ‘Tax cheats’ couldn’t evade paying taxes.
  • It could eliminate welfare fraud.
  • No one could evade state tax by purchasing via the internet.
  • Financial losses (to the government, to businesses, etc.) could be greatly minimized because, once in place, payment plans could be adjusted (if necessary) during periods of economic hardship, etc. but debts would remain ‘on the books’ until every last penny was paid.
  • Stops could be put in place to prevent a person from spending or borrowing beyond their means, based on their financial history, and current income and obligations.
  • Priorities could be set on a person’s obligations so that payments were always deducted before any funds were made available to them.
  • ‘Deadbeat Dads’ could be stopped in their tracks by deducting child support from their paychecks and transferring it to the custodial parent–this would decrease the number of single parents and children that live in poverty.

Safety

  • With enough personal data (DNA, eye scans, fingerprints) included in the system, identity theft could be virtually eliminated.
  • It could greatly reduce crime.
  • It would be easy to monitor the whereabouts of criminals and catch perpetrators.
  • It would make illegal sales and purchases very difficult, and they would be easy to prosecute because every transaction would be recorded.
  • It would decrease theft, because it would be hard to resell the stolen items.
  • It would reduce robbery, and its associated violence, because cash could be eliminated.
  • It would be relatively simple to solve crimes, once everyone’s DNA, fingerprints, etc. were in the system.  (Even if an individual had managed to avoid that, it would be possible to narrow down their identity based on the similarity of their DNA to family members that were in the database.)

So, basically, my feeling is that the Healthcare Plan is a ‘Trojan Horse’ and a backdoor way of instituting a new system that is unconstitutional, and that many people would otherwise resist.

I know what sort of evil the Bible says that a system like this will enable.  It basically puts in place a vehicle for satan to come into power over all the governments and people of the Earth, and to have authority over everyone–and it is an awful, fearsome, brutal, stifling way in which he will rule.

Some people may think this is an exaggeration, that this system could not spread to the whole world.  I can’t predict the exact manner in which that would take place, or if it even would, but I do know that the American Empire is spread out over the entire planet.  Certainly not everyone is subject to us, but we have a significant entanglement with, and leverage over, many different countries and peoples.

We have sufficient bio warfare capabilities, for example, that we could covertly unleash a worldwide plague, and happen to be the only ones that were able to develop an antidote.  In that kind of a crisis, it would be easy to implement some form of a healthcare/tracking system in countries that we chose to help.

Who knows.  These are thoughts and opinions I have based on the basic facts stated above:

  • This MANDATORY health care plan will involve every man, woman, and child in the US.
  • All of the personal, financial, and medical information for every man, woman, and child in the US can be kept in a file in this one system.
  • This system gives the government 24/7  access to your bank accounts.
  • Our friendly IRS will be responsible for all of this.
  • A national healthcare ID card will be required.

Some people will see these possibilities as wonderful–others of us will see this kind of system as nightmarish and oppressive. These are just my opinions.  I could be all wrong.  I hope so.

And, as you can see, there are many compelling reasons to put a system like this in place.  Do we have a good reason for resisting?  I know it is unconstitutional–I believe that is a very important reason.  The opposition’s main rebuttal is that The Constitution was meant to bend and flow with time and circumstances.  (I disagree).  But, eventually it may not come down to a question of what our founders intended–but of what the majority want now.

How do we answer these selling points without sounding hopelessly steeped in superstition, fear and paranoia?  We are talking about things that can happen– but they’ll argue that it’s not inevitable that they will happen.  (Because of our faith in God and the accuracy of His Word, we know these things WILL eventually happen).

We are opposing people that believe the ends justify the means.  And it looks like the possible ends could solve an awful lot of problems–problems that are concrete and exist today, versus later events that they question, because they are based in the prophecies of a God they neither serve nor believe in.  I can understand why they would be so frustrated with our opposition.

Unquestionably, we are in a difficult position.  We know what God has told us things will be like later–and it will be possible because of a system they are putting in place today.  But, the only grounds we have for fighting it, that our opponents might consider rational, is that the way it is being put in place is unconstitutional.  Can we even say, with certainty, that God is telling us to fight it?

I don’t have the answers.  These are things I’m wrestling with.  What do we do?  Do we continue to fight it?  Or do we decide that if most Americans want this new Amerika, then that is their choice?  Do we leave, and find a home elsewhere, that better agrees with our beliefs?

If we stay, will we change anything by fighting? (We do know that the whole world will eventually end up with this kind of a system–but will it be because nothing we did could change it–or because we left and allowed it to happen? I think, at best, we can buy some time, but I believe we could buy 20 years at most.)

As Americans, it is our duty to fight this hijacking of our country–if we wish to continue to have it for our children, as it was originally founded.  But, if we find that we truly are in the minority–then do we have the right to impose our view of things on everyone else?

As Christians, we are to be good stewards, and to be responsible and actively involved in our communities and in our country–but are we to stay here and continue fighting, or should we go in peace?

I have believed that we should fight for America–especially since our government has basically been hijacked, and things that are being done are against the will of the people–but I’m no longer sure.  I’m beginning to doubt that enough of us have the will to fight–that some want this new Amerika, some don’t care, and some care but won’t expend any effort to join the fight.

Is taking back America something that you should be willing to fight for–to the death?  And if you believe so–why?  Is it patriotism that requires it, pride and anger over injustice, or the will of God for American Christians?

As Christians, what should our priorities be?  I believe:

  1. God
  2. Family
  3. Church
  4. Community/Country

I think each of us really needs to look to God for wisdom.  The door is still open, for those who wish to leave America in peace.  But I believe the door will close, and many of those who remain will be imprisoned or die for their resistance.

I believe that those who stay will either

  • yield and become part of the new ungodly Amerika (and be pressured further from God each day) or
  • stay, and live in peace as much as they can, and concentrate on evangelism (as a missionary in a foreign country) or
  • stay and fight to regain America–and pay a very high price (Will they win back America?  I don’t know.)

It is time to really seek God for wisdom, and His will in your life.  He has a plan for each of us, a plan for our families–and a plan for America.

Is America under God’s judgment?  If so, perhaps He is calling you to leave, so that you will not suffer her punishment.  If He is judging America, then would our efforts to win her back be in contradiction to His will?  Would we have any hope of success? If America is to be won back, it will definitely require God’s involvement to happen.

On the contrary, if it is God’s will for us to win America back, it doesn’t take a majority. Look back to the story of Gideon: God sent many of the fighters back home, and used just a small group of men to defeat a huge army–because He didn’t want them taking the credit for the victory.  He wanted them to realize that He had fought the battle on their behalf.

I don’t have the answers.  We each need to seek God for His will for us.  Some of us He may call to leave, some to stay and evangelize, and others to stay and resist.

And for those who decide to stay and fight–is it God’s will that your family should also stay, or does He wish to move them to a place of safety?  I do believe that your responsibility to care for and protect your family comes ahead of your responsibility to your country.  Do you have a right to endanger them because of your conviction that you should stay and fight? Even if that is God’s will for you, it may not be His will for them.

Let it be His will that decides your course–not fear, not guilt, not pressure from others.

The day that our tax money begins to pay into a health care system that subsidizes abortion will be a momentous occasion in the spiritual realm.  It will be one of those days that history looks back on, as being a point on which the fate of a nation turned.

If our tax money goes to pay for abortions, or other grievous actions, and we are aware yet continue to pay into the system, we will be guilty of ‘partaking of its sins’.

Whether or not you are aware of the importance of that day, God is going to be watching us closely.  On that day, each of us is faced with a decision.  Will we passively ‘go with the flow’ and become undeniably complicit in this national sin–or will we do whatever it takes to see that we are not involved?

To not make a decision IS a decision! Will we, as individuals, have the courage and character to repent of our national sin of abortion by resisting this policy and refusing to participate or enable it in any way?

At what point will we begin to take sin seriously enough to put aside our personal comfort and safety to be reconciled to God through repentance? Nothing will change if we keep going with the flow!

Evolution does not occur! But disintegration does! Time and inaction will not bring about improvement! At some point we have to dig in our heels and say: ‘I will not go one step further in this direction’!  If you find yourself on the wrong train, don’t you stand up and ask the conductor to stop the train so that you can get off?

Who do you fear more, God or the government?

Will we do the right thing, and trust Him who is able to protect us to look out for our safety–or will we follow the path of least resistance, surrendering our integrity for a security that, I guarantee you, will not last?

God is testing our character–individually, and as a nation.  He is allowing each of us to be brought to this place of decision–and the decisions we make will decide our national and personal destinies.

Although we may personally be able to avoid judgment for actions our government takes that we are unaware of, and don’t directly participate in–we are aware now, and will be personally guilty of participating if we continue to provide tax dollars to a government that murders.

Lightning may not strike the White House on that day, but our country will surely begin to suffer God’s judgment, if we continue to proceed in that direction.  Without His blessing upon us, we will suffer at the hands of our own government, our enemies, the weather, and natural disasters.  Mark my words.

Nationally, we have been deserving of  judgment from the time of the passage of the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion, but God has been patient with us and has given us time to repent.  We haven’t.  If our nation doesn’t soon change course, our nation will bear God’s judgment: hunger, plagues, and wars (that we lose . . . on American soil. . . ).

I believe the time is fast approaching when God will call upon His people to ‘come out of’ our corrupt economic system (Babylon the Great). I don’t know exactly how we go about this (‘coming out of’ the system). We will each have to seek God’s wisdom as to how to proceed.  But perhaps that call pertains to this day as well.  If every devout Christian and pro-life citizen in America would go on strike beginning that day, as a matter of conscience, perhaps things would begin to turn.

Maybe the time has arrived, to start thinking about coming out.

If This Is True, We’d Better Not Yield To The Temptation
Homosexuality, What’s The Big Deal?

Should We Be Thinking About Coming Out?

I have heard that the National Health Care plan is to be set up in such a way that results in young people paying more than older people.  The reasoning? Not sure about that, but I can see one benefit to those who are pushing the bill: many older, less healthy people may breathe a sigh of relief because they can’t afford higher payments, and will be less likely to oppose the bill.  We’d better look farther though, and not yield to that temptation.

Most young people  enjoy good health but have low income.  Why should they pay more?  They should not inherit our problems.  Ultimately, we failed to provide for our own old age, before these young adults were ever born!

The Bible tells us to discipline our children, but warns against provoking them to wrath!  What provokes children to wrath?  Injustice!

I will mince no words.  If we approve  of binding such an unjust burden upon the young people of America–we will ultimately reap what we sow: euthanasia.

Do any of you who wonder:  Why would Obama turn on the young people who, overwhelmingly, voted for him?

Here is my opinion:  He knows he has their unquestioning adoration, and they see him as a peer.  The blame will not fall on him, it will fall on ‘the opposition’ (whoever opposes Obama and his agenda), and upon those who will benefit from this unjust system: the sick and the elderly.

This president and his cabinet, czars, etc.  have caused more division in America than anything, or anyone, that I have seen in my lifetime, or can remember from history!  He knows exactly how to play into the entitlement mentality of today’s young people to win them over.  Once their loyalty is won, he and his people add their own discontent and rebellion to the discontent, anger, and fear of the young. They provoke and magnifying the discontent of the young, to help accomplish their revolution.

I don’t think it is an oversight that the National Health Care system was set up in this manner.  The whole thing is a HUGE Trojan horse, full of provisions to ensure the complete overthrow of America as we have known it.  This is why Obama is so adamant that it must be passed!  This embodies his agenda. (See my prevous post: Will America’s New Health Care ID Card Eventually Morph Into ‘The Mark Of  The Beast’?)

When this man took his seat in the White House, America began to crack and divide:  Democrat against Republican, Liberal against Conservative, Black against White, Son against Father, Poor against Rich.

A nation divided against itself cannot stand!  This administration is getting its inspiration and direction straight from Hell!  We know that it is Satan’s nature to steal, kill and destroy, so it is obvious he’s behind this.

We need to be wise, strategic, and HONORABLE.  Don’t let fear and greed tempt you to betray the young in order to effect your own security!  Yes, we need health care reform, but don’t rob someone else to get it!!



Abortion, Are You SURE You Have The Right?
Homosexuality, What’s The Big Deal?

I advise people not to form too much of a picture concerning The Mark of The Beast*, etc., because we don’t know exactly what it will be, and the Bible says that there will be such great deception in the last days that even God’s chosen are almost fooled. I thought I followed the same advice, yet I recently had my eyes opened to a different way that America might get to the place where we are all required to have that mark, and I was very surprised! So, even without meaning to, I guess I too had formed a general idea of how it would look, or happen.

It can easily be argued that speculation is a waste of time. What I ‘saw’ is just my own opinion of one way that it might come about, but I’m going to share it. I think it may be good for helping you to identify what perceptions you may already have, and to open your mind to a broader range of possibilities. (This won’t be nearly as far-fetched a scenario as it sounds.) I really wanted to write this piece months ago, but simply didn’t have the time. Perhaps it just wasn’t God’s timing.

I was very unsettled by some of the provisions that were found near the end of the first Obama Care bill. Surprisingly to me, little or nothing was said about them. Having in mind the cries of concern that are usually heard, whenever some measure to implement a mandatory national ID is considered, I was a little puzzled. I don’t know whether people that would care didn’t know what was in the bill, and the people who knew what was in the bill weren’t concerned–or if those who are watching out for ‘The Mark’ already had perceptions of how it would happen, that allowed this to slip by them.

I don’t know if these provisions are in the current legislation, but I have every reason to suspect that they are–especially since no one seems to have voiced any objections to their inclusion in the first bill.

Here are the issues that concern me because, when combined, they create the same kind of absolute control over each citizen that The ‘Beast System’ will have.

  • The government will have real-time access to EVERY individual’s finances.
  • A National ID Health Care card will be issued.
  • The government will have direct access to your bank accounts for electronic funds transfer, etc.
  • Medicaid eligibility will automatically be determined and eligible individuals will automatically be enrolled.
  • The officers and employees of the Health Care Administration (government) will have access to ALL Americans’ financial and personal records.
  • The government will build registries and data networks from your electronic medical records.
  • ‘The Center for Comparative Effectiveness Research’ will be established.
  • The government (Center for Comparative Effectiveness Research) may secure data directly from any department or agency of the United States, including your data.
  • Your published and unpublished data (public & private information) will be collected by ‘The Center’.
  • An “Appointed Clinical Perspective Advisory Panel” will advise ‘The Center’ and recommend policies that would allow for public access of data.
  • The bill proposes, for the sake of law enforcement, that the Secretary of Health & Human Services will give the Attorney General access to ALL medical data.
  • “Quality” measures shall be designed to profile you including your race, age, gender, place of residence, etc.
  • The government takes over the private payment system and all billing agents, clearinghouses, etc. are required to register.
  • The government will access all personal financial information of individuals it identifies as ‘likely to be ineligible’ for subsidies.
  • The government will MANDATE the establishment of a National Health Service Corps where doctors will perform mandatory healthcare for 2 years, for partial loan repayment. (All student loans are now to come through the Federal Government, if I remember correctly).
  • The government will establish a Public Health Workforce Corps, including a Regular and a Reserve Corps, to ensure an adequate supply of public health professionals. (I would assume that these Corps could be called upon to help ensure compliance with whatever measures the government might deem necessary–under the guise of public safety, a medical crisis, pandemic, etc.)

In reading back over this list, I notice that there are 3 different provisions that ensure that the government has access to everyone’s personal financial information, in addition to having direct access to everyone’s bank accounts. I can only theorize that this is a very important item to the bill’s authors (The Apollo Alliance?) that they want to ensure will not be removed from the bill, even if changes are made to one section or another.

So, let me summarize. If I understand correctly,

  • These provisions would link each individual’s financial records, bank accounts, personal records, physical and mental health records.
  • The government will have direct access to your bank accounts.
  • Your information will be available to just about every person in every department of the government, law enforcement, and everyone working for the healthcare system (oops, that’s redundant!), and maybe even the general public.
  • You will be issued a National ID Health Care card and, I’m assuming, all of your information would be contained on that card.
  • All of this would be mandatory.
  • There would be a complete network of government employed individuals in place to help ensure compliance with any measures the government calls for.

Am I misunderstanding? exaggerating? Does anyone else see the potential for big problems with this? In the end, I don’t think there’s anything that can be done to prevent this from coming, sooner or later. But, I think it’s coming soon folks. These provisions, if enacted, definitely provide a large part of the foundation and framework, for the American aspect, of the world government that will emerge, that will fulfill the prophecies regarding the ‘Beast’ government system (that will eventually be headed by the Antichrist)!

And wait, there’s more!

These are other provisions I find concerning:

  • The government will use groups (like ACORN & Americorps?) to sign up individuals for the healthcare plan.
  • The government MANDATES ‘Advance Care Planning’ consultations (mandatory consultation regarding your plans for death & dying).
  • The government MANDATES consultation with you to instruct you regarding living wills and durable powers of attorney.
  • The government will provide a list of ‘approved’ end of life resources, to guide you in the process of dying.
  • The government MANDATES a program for orders for life sustaining treatment.
  • The ‘Advance Care Planning’ consultations will be used frequently as your health deteriorates. (I’m having a vision of vultures hovering over you . . .)
  • The ‘Advance Care Planning’ consultation may include an ORDER, from the government, for your end of life plans.
  • The government will specify which doctors have the authority to write an order to end your life.
  • The government will decide what level of treatment you are allowed at the end of your life, according to preset methods.
  • ‘Community Based Home Medical Service’ means a nonprofit community-based or state-based organization. (Like Acorn?)
  • The government will cover Marriage and Family therapy.
  • The government will cover Mental Health Services, including defining, creating, and rationing those services.
  • The government will REQUIRE preventative services, including vaccines.
  • Nurse Home Visit Services will counsel you on increasing birth intervals between pregnancies. (Will they counsel in favor of abortions?)
  • The government will provide Nurse Home Visit Services, including determination of economic self-sufficiency, employment advancement and school-readiness.
  • The government will design and implement a Home Visitation Program for families with young kids, and families expecting kids. This Home Visitation Program includes teaching you how to parent.

There are other provisions to be concerned about, but these are the things that I see as the most immediate dangers to our freedom.

May I remind you–law enforcement (at present) does not have the right to come into your home and search it without a warrant. In general, anything obtained from or seen in your home, without a warrant, is inadmissible in court–UNLESS you open the door and permit them entry.

So, as it currently stands, you have the right to refuse anyone entry into your home. If any of these home visitation programs become mandatory, then you HAVE TO let them in. And if you let them in, does that mean anything they see in your home is admissible in court if charges are brought against you for any reason? Not that I have anything to hide, but what I’m getting at is this: is this just an ‘end run around’ your protection from warrantless searches? If so, how many people will realize that’s the case when they open the door to let the nurse (a government representative) come in? Is it even legal/constitutional for home visits to ever be mandatory?

One other thing-even though something you are doing today may not be illegal today, Obama has shown a willingness to pass laws that are retroactive. This means that if you have a Bible in your home today, and a nurse makes note of it in your file during a home visit, and then next month it becomes retroactively illegal to own a Bible, you could be prosecuted. Will you be profiled as a ‘government resistor’ or ‘terrorist’ if certain things are seen in your home and documented during a home visit?

If this new, proposed healthcare system doesn’t scare you–it should.

Will your eyes and fingerprints be scanned, your blood type noted, maybe your DNA be sampled, as part of the program? Is it too far fetched to think this could also be the precursor to a cashless economy? How much more work would be necessary for that to happen if all of your financial records and accounts are already accessible through this card? Could this card be replaced by a microchip and a visible mark, perhaps to prevent identity theft?

In regards to the focus on end of life counseling, (and of course) budgetary considerations, and valuations of life for different ages and categories of people (kind of like a credit rating?)–I have not even touched on the topic of eugenics or how the Nazi atrocities were connected with the American eugenics movement early in the last century.

In short, eugenics is the philosophy behind genocide and population control. It is a philosophy that is, and for some time has been, widely embraced among people in positions of influence and authority in America. (Some of the American families connected with Nazi experiments at Auschwitz and Monowitz are still prominent and influential in politics today.)

Frighteningly, also prominent today are the chemical/pharmaceutical companies that helped develop chemical weapons, pesticides, and medicines and tested them on the detainees at Auschwitz.

You may be surprised to learn that not only are these companies making the pesticides and medicines (and maybe chemical and bioweapons?) of today–they are among the architects of genetically modified foods/crops, and are the producers of many of our vaccines.

In fact, two of the modern corporations that bought out one of these German companies are receiving 60% of the funding to develop the H1N1 flu vaccine. I’m sure there is much more to be uncovered regarding these pharmaceutical companies, genetically modified foods, the possibility of mandatory vaccinations, possible vaccination-autism links, eugenics, etc..

Here is a link to the document that I referred to, with regards to the troublesome provisions of the first ObamaCare bill.  (It includes the references to the applicable sections of the bill.)  I want to emphasize, again, that this is not the current version of ObamaCare that is being debated.  It is the first version.  However, I strongly suspect that most, if not all, of these provisions will be included in the final bill.

*’The Mark of The Beast’: The visible mark used to identify citizens of the ‘Beast System’ (new, global, government in the physical realm that, in the spirit realm, is the kingdom of Satan).
‘He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name . . .’ (666-six hundred and sixty six). from the Biblical book of ‘Revelation’.

‘The Mark Of The Beast’: Characteristics

Are You Afraid? (forced vaccinations)

2010 Census Questions

If This Is True, We’d Better Not Yield To The Temptation

I’ve just spent this cold, dreary day surfing the Web and reading lots of scary things about what is going on now.  What was most terrifying of all I saw today was a video on You Tube, about forced vaccinations.

I’m not going to link you to that video.  Let me tell you why.  I was not too concerned when I first started watching, and the Lord impressed upon me, simultaneously, two things:

  1. The incident that Paul had when bitten by a viper (Acts 28:5-6: ‘But Paul shook the snake off into the fire and suffered no ill effects.  The people expected him to swell up or suddenly fall dead, but after waiting a long time and seeing nothing unusual happen to him, they changed their minds and said that he was a god.’  Of course he wasn’t a god, but this shows how lethal the venom of that viper was).
  2. ‘ And these signs shall accompany them that believe: . . . and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall in no wise hurt them . . .’ (Mark 16:17-18)

But as I watched the video, even with full faith in these things, fear came over me.  I have learned some mighty scary things lately, yet have not been afraid because I’ve had the ‘peace of God which transcends all understanding’ which is promised to guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.  I’ve even contemplated, quite a bit, the probability of death (eventually) for standing up for what I believe.  But this video made me afraid.

With the video came a spirit of fear.

Now, what is in the video may be true–or not. And I’m  not saying the motive behind it was to engender fear, because I believe that is a strategy and tool of Satan.  But, he is working in concert with things like this.  There is a lot of hysteria developing, and that hysteria will have repercussions.  As Christians, we should be the sanest, calmest people in the room.  We should understand what is happening, and why.

The Lord promises us not ‘a spirit of fear, but of power and love and of a sound mind’, and  ‘you did  not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear . . .’  This should reaffirm to you that fear is a bondage, and this type of fear is not from God.

Now, I can understand if you are afraid, but let God take your fear away and replace it with strength and boldness.  He has done it for many of us already.  He will give you the grace to go through whatever comes your way.

There is one other point I want to make briefly, but cover in greater depth soon: The Rapture.

Yes, Christ will return after seven years of tribulation on the earth, but there is no ‘Rapture’ before the Tribulation.  We will not be whisked away just as trouble and persecution reach our shores.  I think in your heart you know this, but you are desperately trying to believe in it anyway, and this is why you struggle with fear.

When you try to believe in one thing while the Spirit is telling your heart differently, it makes you off balance spiritually and more prone to the attacks of the enemy.  When you understand that it is God’s design for Christians to go through the Tribulation, then the things He has been trying to impress upon your heart, to prepare you, will make sense.

Back to the issue of forced vaccinations–I really don’t want one, and I don’t want a tracking device on me.  But, not because I am afraid of that. For most of my life I feared the things that were to come, but now that they are at the doorstep, the Lord has given me peace and boldness. I am just a hermit-like person who prefers privacy.  I will not take the vaccination, unless I have to.  But if I have to, I will–and it will not harm me.

That is not my personal ‘line in the sand’. However, as a society, I believe we should continue to fight such things, when they are unfounded. But, the thing is, sooner or later, there will be a legitimately good reason for such measures. And, when that time arrives, we would be foolish to stand in the way.

I think it is important that we continue to remain sane and rational, because if hysteria takes hold we will lose all credibility.  Fear becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

We talk about living by faith, but how will you live in faith tomorrow if you can’t live by faith today?  Start practicing now!!
