Welcome to this extra mid-May blog. Check out Just A Rehearsal? Is Covid-19 restrictions about our health only or is it a rehearsal for future “lockdowns”?

The Word for Today

“I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior” (1 Timothy 2:1-3 NLT).

Words of wisdom

If you won’t take credit for what God does, you won’t have to take the blame for what He doesn’t do. – Paul Price

When the state puts you in jail for walking in the park with your child because it is too dangerous, but lets criminals out of jail, it is not about your health. – Kevin Sorbo

 ♦♦♦♦♦♦

Isn’t it funny…

…how we need to “release people from jail ‘so they won’t get Covid’ applies to rapists and pedophiles but not to hair stylists?” – Allie Beth Stuckey

…how, if YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook are deferring to the WHO, and WHO is deferring to China, then social media companies are de facto being censored by China? – PatriotPost

…that the only way the Covid virus will die is if it has dirt on the Clintons? – Ibid.

…how going to a crowded Krogers or Walmart or Home Depot is safe, but going to an ocean beach, even an unpopulated one, is unsafe?

…how some politicians go entirely deaf to charges of sexual harassment when it involves someone in their party?

…how, in two years, the term “Believe All Women” has morphed into “believe all Democrats”?

…that some people still believe everything their government tells them?

Just A Rehearsal?

“Lock ’em up!”

That recent official order did not relate to the Clintons or a lying former FBI Director but to the nation’s churches.

In 1 Timothy 2:1-3, the Apostle Paul issued instructions for Christians to pray for those in political authority and positions of power. Back then they were dealing with the mighty Roman Empire at large and the law-bound Hebrew nation up close during Paul’s lifetime. He urged prayer for them in spite of their hate and persecution and gross hypocrisy.

Perhaps it was no easier for Paul to know how to pray for Roman rulers than it is for you and me to pray for presidents and congressmen, especially when you see abuses of power that are sowing the seeds of totalitarianism in our nation. Actor Kevin Sorbo has accurately discerned, “When the state puts you in jail for walking in the park with your child because it is too dangerous, but lets criminals out of jail, it is not about your health.” It is about power and control. And when they let you go out for groceries and hardware but then they insist on a “mail-in vote,” you can be certain that they are not concerned about keeping you safe from a virus. When liquor stores are considered “essential” entities to be kept open but churches must be locked, something is wrong with this picture.

That being said, we must never stop interceding for those in authority, and especially for those who seem to want to do the right thing. I must admit that prayer for tyrannical kings and puny potentates is more difficult than ever—although more needed than ever.

Government corruption is now touching each of us, and our families and homes. It is not just off out yonder in far away Washington somewhere, but now all around us. We are presently in a test to see how far citizens will allow government to go in controlling their lives. This present scenario was organized last year, and much of it planned years ago (see links below) before you and I had heard of coronavirus. How to take control of the masses, masked as a pandemic, was discussed and outlined

Make no mistake, this present virus is real, and it is aiding in the death of a lot of people, some of whom I have known personally, and much of what we are doing to curb the spread of it is wise. We have nearly a dozen health care workers in our church battling this pandemic—heroes every one. But did it merit shutting down the country? We have had similar viruses and flu pandemics and other pestilences loosed upon us (virtually all from Asia, particularly China) that killed hundreds of thousands of Americans, yet former administrations did not shut the country down.

Yes, we have lost thousands of citizens, mostly older ones, with complications traceable to Covid. We have also lost millions of jobs, many of which will never come back. Poverty is now or soon will be staring many in the face. Dependence on government checks—a goal of socialists—is more common than ever in our lifetime. Suicides have escalated, as have divorces. Confusion reigns. We want a stable government run by honest and fair-minded individuals. For that we are told to pray: “..that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

In 1918, we were fighting a war in Europe when the flu struck and took the lives of 675,000 people in the U.S. There was no shutdown of the economy and the closing of churches. In 1957, the Asian flu killed 116,000 Americans when the population was only 177 million. To extrapolate that out, we would be seeing many hundreds of thousands of deaths, perhaps over a million with Covid. I had the Asian flu (it targeted younger people) in 1957 and it put me and many others on our backs. However, there was no hysteria, no shutdown, schools and businesses remained open, sports continued, the economy was not totally wrecked, the stock markets didn’t crash, Congress didn’t pass politically-motivated legislation, and the hospitals and health industry handled the pandemic.

The Hong Kong flu of 1968-69 killed another 33,000 but no shutdown of the country occurred. Folks figured disease was more of medical problem than one calling for a political solution. Right now the effort is on to unseat a president. That understanding does not diminish the pain of loss in those families touched by Covid. Our hearts go out to them.

The former Coronavirus (SARS) in 2003 took its toll. In 2009 the Swine Flu (H1N1) killed thousands and there was no shut down. The current virus targets older people who are more likely to vote for a more conservative government. I’m not saying that was by design, although it could have been. Why would we ever trust the Chinese communists and those who bow to them to do the right thing regarding America?

Another nation, like China, can do this anytime they want to. It’s called biological warfare. They know they cannot whip this nation in a war, but they want to do it without firing a missile. What we are presently seeing is a propagation of fear that is being used to diminish the will of the nation. Death numbers of Covid are being purposely skewed (we all know this) to produce more fear and collect more money for hospitals or political entities. With each passing day, America faces new cases of pathological lying from the political establishment. Even Dr. Birx of the President’s Coronavirus task force, reported death tolls from the virus are overstated by as much as 25%. In an extremely blunt criticism of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) where the numbers originate, Dr. Birx stated, “There is nothing from the CDC that I can trust.” Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, himself a medical doctor, spoke out against the perceived wisdom of globalist Dr. Fauci, noting that his pandemic response has been marred by “wrong prediction after wrong prediction.” For answers to many questions, follow the money—and the politics.

With Dr. Fauci, the WHO and CDC calling the shots, the nation was shut down. Fauci now says schools may not open in the fall. Gates wants compulsory vaccine for everyone. They are saying it will probably not be available until January. Will it come to be vaccinated or else? He has even offered $10 million to Nigeria if the leaders will bypass elected government bodies and impose mandatory vaccine for all. And who could you trust with your freedoms more than globalists like Dr. Fauci, Bill Gates and George Soros? They are on a par with the guy on Times Square in NYC selling an armful of “Rolox” watches, or Adam Schiff informing us of the truth about governmental oversight.

It is fairly obvious that one of the objectives was to bring down the greatest economy that the world has known, and with it the current presidency. That seems to be common knowledge. There are no secrets anymore. Leftist governors are not planning on opening up sports events in the fall. Why is that blue state officials want to keep the economy on lockdown? HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson said on May 9, The economic crisis we are experiencing right now is intentional. They are jailing people like the salon owner in Dallas for opening up a little early so employees could buy groceries and feed their families while turning convicted prisoners loose! The NYC mayor has banned constitutionally protected protests of any kind. An array of NYC cops threw a woman, accompanied by her small child, to the ground and handcuffed her because their masks were not covering her faces. Is the management of this pandemic just a rehearsal for future impositions? Nothing appears more certain.

Getting people to tattle on each other, or reporting stores that may violate a spatial requirement or a 25% customer rule—that is the kind of thing they promote in Communist countries. Our police departments have been busy on calls about such reported “violations.” Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of a basketball franchise in Dallas, admitted to sending spies into stores to see if they were enforcing the 6-foot rule of social distancing. Drones are being used to spy on potential violators. We are being conditioned to accept total top down control secured by the socialists’ methods of monitoring the populace.

Be cautious, listen carefully to your pastor, obey the guidelines of your church. Dump fear. Keep the right attitude. Wrong and divisive spirits can find a way into a congregation impacted by the present crisis. Be aware. Be humble. Be informed. And most of all, be prayerful. “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour (1 Timothy 2:3).

The following sites will give you a grisly view of our present and future pandemics and how they are/will be managed to install top down control of the masses. Dr. Fauci and the globalists and communists have been hard at work for years to achieve this ultimate goal of personal and economic control.

The Last Words

I think all the world would gain by setting commerce at perfect liberty.”  —Thomas Jefferson (1785)

  1. Just watched a video of events happening today Sacramento, CA., then saw your blog on my husband’s email. I remember visiting the Holocaust Museum in DC about 7 years ago. The theme for the year was “That it may never happen again.” How are people disconnecting so much on this and not seeing it? The leaders know they cannot touch the Constitution, so they regulate everything out of existance. Yes, keep your guns, but you can only buy so many bullets. Yes, homeschool your children, but you must follow these extreme regulations to do so (happened a few years back in WA state after a vote of the people in support of HS). Today, in Sacramento, they “pulled the permits” , so people demonstrating peacefully are now breaking the law instead of just disobeying an order. You are very right. The framework was put into place much earlier than February or March. Thank you for being a voice telling us all the water is getting ready to boil, as we sit like frogs thinking we are just enjoying a Jacuzzi!
