Controlling the Church

Exodus 10:11

Have only the men go and worship the Lord, since that’s what you have been asking for.” Then Moses and Aaron were driven out of Pharaoh’s presence.

What the state is trying to do today is exactly the same as when Pharoah tried to control the outcome of the Exodus of the children of Israel from Egypt.  It will end in the same way,  God is always triumphant.  No one tells God’s people how, when, where or how many of them can worship him.

Social Distancing – What would Jesus do?

Matthew 8:2-3
And a leper came to Him and bowed down before Him, and said, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

I spoke to a pastor recently and asked the simple question, “Did Jesus practice social distancing?”  It is not important who the pastor is, as most pastors would have given a similar answer.  However, the answer is important and worthy of our consideration.

The answer was, “Not to my knowledge, but I am pretty sure he didn’t preach in the midst of a global pandemic.  We are simply following government guidelines”.

Leprosy was much more than a global pandemic.  A global pandemic is something that kills many people, but it passes. Leprosy was an age-old disease, with not only government guidelines, but the law of Moses which laid down social distancing guidelines.

The answer to what Jesus would do can be found in how he dealt with lepers he encountered.  He went above and beyond what was required and touched the leper in the scripture above.

In following government guidelines, we insist on social distancing, masks and what else?  When the government insist on vaccine passports, are Churches going to exclude those who do not wish to take an experimental new medical procedure?

Well, that is already happening.  The Bishop of Durham has already banned the unvaccinated from Christmas services in Durham cathedral.

We are fast coming to a point where Church leaders are going to have to decide whether to obey God or man (Acts 5:29), and we will find that the further we go down this road, the more difficult it will be to turn.

But to return to the idea of a global pandemic.  A pandemic is a disease that kills thousands of people and to catch it is very often certain death.  Covid-19 has a recovery rate of over 99% and the total death figures for Scotland are much the same as in previous years.

However, those who are convinced by the government narrative, don’t even want to know about those figures.  They just don’t fit with what they ‘know’.

Looking out for others is our duty

James 1:27

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

We have become a society that looks after number one.  We do not see it as our duty to look after or look out for anyone else.  That is the government’s job. This, however, is not God’s way. Jesus cared about everyone who was downtrodden.

Jesus did not socially distance himself from lepers, a disease far more dangerous than Covid.  Even though the accepted protocol and scriptural procedures were to distance himself, he had compassion and went right up to them and touched them.

Roll on to 2021 and the Bishop of Durham is banning anyone from Durham Cathedral who is not fully vaccinated.  That is no Church of God and is no true religion.  I don’t care what they say inside such a Church, if they treat people like that, then they are sons of Satan.  God does not give us the spirit of fear.

Keeping each other safe? Really!

Psalm 41:1-3

Blessed are those who have regard for the weak;
    the Lord delivers them in times of trouble.
 The Lord protects and preserves them—
    they are counted among the blessed in the land—
    he does not give them over to the desire of their foes.
 The Lord sustains them on their sickbed
    and restores them from their bed of illness.

You would be forgiven for thinking that the primary aim of churches these days is to keep their congregation safe.  It seems at every opportunity, pastors are reminding you that we need to follow government guidelines and if we do not comply, we are not safe.

To me, this would seem to say that Covid-19 is stronger than God, a fact which I cannot accept.  The verses above are very clear, that sickness is under the control of God.  He knows all about this Covid-19, and he knows every person who is ill with this illness or any other.

He also knows the lies which are being told about this illness, the fear which is being generated, without cause, and he also knows all about the psychological propaganda war which is being conducted throughout the world at this time.

It is sad, that the Church is being caught up in this, but it is even sadder that educated pastors cannot see through it.  I attend Church and congregations are encouraged to wear masks, without any reason given why it makes them safer.  The truth is that it doesn’t, in fact, it is harmful to their health.

The only benefit that mask-wearing produces is to our masters, who are gaining your submission to a ridiculous idea, and therefore your compliance will be all the easier for the next stage of their plan.  Yes, all of this is a plan designed to gain compliance from the population.

Stop for a minute and think of any other vaccine in history.  Did ever the vaccinated fear the unvaccinated?  No, it would appear that Covid-19 is the worst disease in history, yet overall deaths are not up.  Wake up people, before they have you in chains.

I have visited a number of different churches recently and what they all have in common is that they do not question the government and mainstream media narrative.  I believe that this calls into question the relationship the leadership have with God if they are completely blind to the truth.  I can no longer attend such Churches and am actively searching for a Church that is alive and awake.
