“Understanding The Pandemic Madness”

.

.

.

.

.

“Shall the throne of iniquity

have fellowship with thee,

which frameth mischief by a law?”

Psalm 94:20 

.

.

.

.

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svgPeople are bewildered!

.

Just what on earth is going on!?

.

Did this pandemic virus begin in a laboratory? Or not?

.

And why is the government treating this pandemic so fearfully as if it is as deadly was the case in past pandemics which killed up to a third of the population or more?!

.

And why are governments so afraid afraid of allowing this pandemic to run its course, eventually gaining, “herd immunity”, as was so effective in the past?

.    

And why do so many nations desire to quarantine and shutdown the entire populace when death occurs mostly with some elderly ones who already have co-morbidities? Why not merely quarantine just the elderly while everyone else gains herd immunity as a few nations have successfully done?

.

And why does the government recklessly insist on their untested vaccines, while ignoring time-tested drugs which have proved so effective against this virus?

.

And why is the government speaking so many obvious “lies in hypocrisy”? 1st Timothy 4:2

.

And just why is one protest group freely allowed to engage in public violence and destruction of private/public property, while another group is arrested for peacefully protesting (in Canada)?

.

Why are churches closed down while gambling casinos, liquor/hallucinogenic stores, and big-box stores remain open?

.

Nothing seems to make sense anymore!

.

Perhaps many or even most citizens believe we are currently witnessing a paradigm shift now taking us into some totalitarian dystopia.

.

But why in the world are so many people okay with all this, even encouraging such injustice and pandemic madness!?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG“Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices”

2nd Corinthians 2:11 

.

There are many Bible students who fully believe this entire pandemic virus & subsequent lockdowns are the product of Lucifer (and all his fellow unseen spiritual beings of evil), whom the Bible refers to as “the god of this world”. 2nd Corinthians 4:4

.

Yes, even right down to the development of the virus which may well have been specifically designed by Satan, working through humans in a lab, for this very moment in time!

MARK OF THE BEAST?

.

https://theheavensdeclare.net/mark-of-the-beast-seal-of-god/And doesn’t all this lockdown madness remind us of the prophecy…“And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name”? Revelation 13:17 

.

While the lockdowns are not actually “the mark”, yet small Christian-owned businesses have already been persecuted for refusing to violate their conscious in how they do business, in other ways.

.

But the lockdowns may pave the way for the fulfillment of Revelation 13:17…“And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name”? 

.

In other words, as governments gain increasing power and authority to shut down businesses and individuals from buying and selling, it could very well be the precursor to the hour in which Satan springs his deadly trap on the whole unsuspecting world.

.

“The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, And the time of the dead, that they should be judged”

Revelation 11:18

https://theheavensdeclare.net/woman-flees-to-the-wilderness/.

But one thing we do know about Satan: he is a master at stirring up anger and hatred. And so, as we behold all the divisiveness and anger, we can rest assured that this is being done for his express purposes.

.

And of course he wants to cause church-goers to angrily oppose the present truth found in Revelation 18…And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Revelation 18:4 

.

Yes, these lockdowns will undoubtedly prejudice most church-goers against the idea that God wants them to come out of “Babylon” (the established but apostate congregations), and take their stand with God’s faithful remnant people.

.

“…yea, let God be true, but every man a liar…”

Romans 3:4 

.

And what about all the government lies and hypocrisy? And what about the media Goliaths which likewise deal daily in “Yellow Journalism”?

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_Yellow_Press_by_L.M._Glackens.jpg.

Yes, isn’t it amazing to hear the bold-faced lies and abject hypocrisy coming from the media and from Washington DC, and even from many state governments! It almost takes one’s breath away at how boldly and shamelessly we’re being lied to, and subjected to double-standard justice!

.

Well, one thing is for sure! It sure fulfills the Bible verse…“…yea, let God be true, but every man a liar…”! Romans 3:4

https://theheavensdeclare.net/flood-waters-of-satan/“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon”

Revelation 13:11 

.

But also, as this website has repeatedly warned, Satan is now coming through the government, through the common people, and through the media as the Revelation 13, False Prophet Beast (see also, Revelation 19:20 for “False Prophet” verse)

.

Yes, Satan is using the various media giants as his megaphone, speaking “as a dragon” (Revelation13:11). And since he is the Father of Lies, it is no wonder that so much dishonesty and hypocrisy is being trumpeted these days, via the various forms of media! After all, this world has been given over to him, as the the Gospels reveal. And so, we should not be surprised that he has such authority over the various media giants!

.

And neither should we be amazed that he has so many willing followers!

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:PropagandaNaziStabsBible.gif“Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?

Psalm 94:20 

.

Now of course, we’re told that it’s all about keeping people from dying by this virus. And truth-be-told, our leaders more or less believe this premise.

.

But Satan appears to be using this pandemic as a justification to strengthen his antichrist forces, the worldly governments, as he turns these formerly freedom-loving nations into the same types of totalitarian tyrants which already control other evil empires now existing around the world.

.

Listen…“Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?Psalm 94:20 

.

And so, under the guise of a medical crisis, Satan (under the pretense of “safety” laws) steals away the freedoms, which once made the western nations great! So tragic! And, there are enough citizens willing to allow all this to be carried forward.

SATAN’S WAR-MACHINE BEING READIED AND PRECISION-TUNED

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGAnd, it appears as if all this world-wide orchestration concerning the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, as well as the mass censorship by the tech-Goliaths, and zealous law-enforcement by civil authorities is merely Satan’s means of getting his armies and war-machine ready and precision-tuned for the coming conflict.

.

Yes, Satan is a very formidable adversary of God. And he wants to make very sure he has absolutely every last thing in place for the final “hour of trial coming upon the whole world”, and especially upon God’s unprepared people! (see Revelation 3:10)

.

And last but not least, Satan wants to the world following his “marching-orders”, so that there will be no rebellion when the final test comes.

“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God”

Romans 13:1

.

So how are we to deal with all that’s going on? Are we to protest? Are we to rebel?

.

Just how are we to respond to this obvious tyrannical movement?

.

Well, this above verse says it all!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rezando.jpgYes, as far as our obedience or disobedience, the Bible commands us to obey, “in all things lawful”. (see 1st Peter 2:13)

.

And as far as protesting, the most effective protesting we can do is before the Lord in our prayer closet, as we protest our own past lethargy and slovenly ways.

GOOD NEWS!

.

Well, the Good News is, that we can still beg and plead for enough time and willingness to fully get our armor on and sharpen our swords!

.

Because, God is allowing Satan to orchestrate this entire pandemic theater, to cause His Lukewarm Church to rise up in alarm, just as it is written…The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? Isaiah 33:14

.

Yes, we were all taken by surprise by these apocalyptic events. Many of us were led to believe that we would all be raptured out of the world, prior to the great and Terrible Day of the Lord! But now we’ve been surprised! But now we are filled with fear as we see everything we thought was “as solid as Gibraltar”, wash away like the proverbial “castle made of sand”!

.

Let’s all make haste and not delay!

Perhaps this final verse encapsulates the fearful moment we’re surprised to discover to be now caught in…

The sinners in Zion are afraid; 

fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. 

Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? 

who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?”

HEAVENLY OBJECT LESSON

.

“Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.” Isaiah 24:23

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Um_moinho_dominando_a_ba%C3%ADa_%C3%A0_luz_lunar.jpg

.

When God created the Moon and the stars, He ordained them to “rule the night” (Gen. 1:16). The Moon, especially when it is full, can light your pathway through the night, as it reflects the light of the Sun.

.

So too, the Christian is to be a light to the world: to this sin-darkened world. But as the Moon must reflect the light of the Sun, in order to be a light to the world, so also must the Christian reflect the light of Jesus, to be a spiritual light to this planet in rebellion. Listen…

.

“Ye are the light of the world…Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

.This is a drawing of a winter-time total lunar eclipse, first published in Bilder- (Picture Atlas of the Stemenwelt) in 1888

However, during an eclipse, the Earth passes directly between the Sun and the Moon, preventing that sunlight from shining on the Moon’s face. This is an incredible object-lesson about when the child of God allows the world to come between him and his Lord. Like the eclipse, that person no longer reflects the light of Jesus, because his or her love of this dark world of sin has eclipsed the light from the “Sun of Righteousness” (see Malachi 4:2).

.

And so, this is just one of the many poetic truths seen in the Moon. (For more on this subject of an eclipse, you may link to the article… “Lunar Eclipse & Spiritual Eclipse”)
