Needles, vaccines, and masks…oh, my!

If it’s heard in the mainstream media–either TV or radio—it has to be true, right?

Enter COVID. The drum beat of COVID has been one such provocative story. It’s deadly. It’s contagious. Get it and you’ll die. The fright of this invisible virus has been dangled over our heads, and the fear mongering just won’t let up. Sadly, it’s permeated our heads to the point where we’ve become fearful of one another as though we were all biohazards. But when a virus is used politically by the wrong people, then it becomes more than a contagion. It becomes a weapon. Never let a good crisis go to waste.

In making relevant news during the months of economic lockdown, mainstream media have barely mentioned the recovery rates for this contagion—the 99 percent or so. They fail to give mention to how we can help ourselves through self-administered protocols of fortifying our immune systems. No one in the MSM have talked about anything other than lockdowns, masks, vaccines, restrictions, and the death toll numbers. Why?

These rising death toll numbers have been finagled every which way from false positives to PCR testing irregularities, including touting COVID as the number one killer over and above heart disease and cancer. How is it that these deaths are attributed to COVID when this virus hasn’t even been able to be isolated in a lab according to doctors?

Even the WHO has finally admitted that PCR testing for COVID is inadequate, and they are recommending new protocols. In January, Merck Pharmaceuticals just scrapped their COVID vaccine trials, saying that it’s better to get the virus and recover. The vaccine shots delivered an inferior immune system response in comparison with a natural infection.

With every doctor who promotes the benefits of a questionable vaccine, there are countless other doctors who do not.

Dr. Ted Noel is among the latest to use common sense and reason to argue that masks don’t work to stop aerosol virus transmission. The first randomized controlled trial of the efficacy of surgical face masks against SARS-CoV-2 infection found masks did not significantly reduce the incidence of infection. The particle size is too small and passes through the mask easily. While some now advocate the wearing of two masks, he says that there’s one little problem with that: One risks the mistake of not being able to breathe.

Among states without a mask mandate, 5,781,716 cases were counted over 5,772 days. This works out to:

No mask mandates: 17 cases per 100,000 people per day
Mask mandates: 27 cases per 100,000 people per day

In short, COVID-19 cases were higher with mask mandates than without. As noted by Daniel Horowitz, a senior editor of The Blaze:

“We can turn the numbers upside down and inside out, but no matter how we examine them, there is no evidence of masks correlating with reduced spread. If anything, the opposite is true … It’s self-evident that the virus does what it does naturally and follows a very mechanical pattern regardless of state policies …”

In the debate on governments wanting to keep us safe, I’m not so sure that state governors have flown under the banner of their own state constitutions. In fact, some have overreached to the point of stepping on the citizenry’s freedoms of choice and liberties. The governmental agencies playing the oversight role are often sold out to big lobbyists, who have a bigger stake than citizen’s health. The global reset is on the rise, and they are part of it. Masks, vaccines, lockdowns are more about control than our health, and money is at the root.

If people believe Moderna, Pfizer, Bill Gates or Tony Fauci are acting on our behalf and with our health interests of paramount concern, they need only look at history…look at what has happened in Nazi Germany and present-day China to get a clue what is on the horizon for America. The powers that be say they’re following the “science”; but they are not. The head of the WHO isn’t even a medical doctor. What they are doing is strangling our civil liberties and rights of conscience.

The fact that states without mask mandates have better results than “mandated” states is quite telling. This breathing in of our own CO2 is not healthy in the least, even causing bacterial infections in those who wear masks for long periods. Put a muzzle on a car’s exhaust pipe and see how long the car runs.

As a kid, we were taught not to believe everything we saw or heard but that lesson was long fought as it was much easier to believe the crazy rumor or the unfounded tale without question or discernment. Same with news headlines today. When President Trump took office in 2017, the headline could have easily read: White family kicks black family out of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue home…and people came to believe it. It’s easy to believe what we want to believe.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus, ~ Philippians 4:6


A new song to sing

Who can measure the greatness of an unfathomable God? One who is Lord of all creation…and a three-person deity? Is there anything greater? That as a baby, Christ came into the world, born of a woman, while still the exact replication of our spiritual God, the father, leaves one flummoxed. This God-person stepped from eternity into time and space for the purpose of redeeming man from the wickedness of our own disobedience. It defies logic. How do we worship such a glorious thing? What song can do our reverence justice?

When Jesus walked the earth, he came as a peaceful. loving servant. He healed the sick and caused the blind to see. The miracles he performed didn’t go unheralded, but the essence of who he was became an anathema to man, and so he was hung to die. Yet the greatness of Christ did not let death claim him. He had the victory because he was God.

The magnificence of such a being is so humbling. We sing spiritual songs as How Great Thou Art and He Lives with tears because the magnificence of his presence in our lives is so uplifting, it shatters our emotions. That we could be so loved by him is more than great.

We sing our praises to him on earth and look forward to continuing our song in heaven! As the song goes, When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be. When we all see Jesus, we’ll sing and shout the victory!

Out with the old…

With the cultural and political unrest of this past year, we can all breath a collective sigh that 2020 is officially over. The infamous year will go down as a particularly trying one for many. Though there is always an upside to trials, particularly for God’s children.

For believers, the book of James points us to the mindset we should have during trials and tribulations, and that we are to “count it all joy” when we encounter them, for the “trying of our faith works patience.” But we need to allow patience to work in us or we’ll never master it.

As some lament the world is falling apart; for the children of God, we know with the Lord on the throne, things are not falling apart but instead are falling together. Although we cannot see all of our Lord’s plans and purposes in the blueprint of life, we do know he is at the helm in the midst of the battle. Resting through trusting in his promises is our only refuge.

Trials and tribulations are relative. Some by the fire, and some by the flood… What the Lord allows us to endure as Christians is all for our holiness and to mold us into becoming more refined in Christ. We may scoff and shrink back, but he promises to never leave our side, and his grace is always there to carry us through no matter the storm.

Now that 2021 is here, we’re closer to Jesus’s promise of returning to earth. In the meantime, we trust his word, which says, “…God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose” ~ Romans 8:28

May we have a blessed New Year in the Lord!
