Jehovah Shalom. The LORD of peace. His peace is our protection from the storm. His peace is the guard of our minds and hearts. His peace keeps us singing though imprisoned, beaten down, bruised, bloodied, insulted, wounded or overwhelmed. His peace, like a group of Roman soldiers, fiercely guards us, not allowing the poison of circumstances and emotions to steal, kill and destroy us. His peace enables us to walk on water, win impossible battles, and sing the cold, dark night away, because this peace is not based in facts, but in God Himself. For, no matter where we are, if we are “in Christ” we are safe; we are secure; we are home. Christ is our haven of rest, and so long as He is in the boat, we will not sink.
Today let’s continue studying our LORD of peace.
Missing or Overlooked?
As I was thinking on our Bible topic this past weekend, I began to feel that something very important regarding application was missing, but I could not pinpoint what it was. How does it all play out? How does one apply this peace? How can it become operational in our lives?
A close relative of mine recently was speaking with a family friend. Though we live several hours a part and haven’t seen each other in a long time, she and her husband pray for my family, and we pray for them. This family friend has had some health issues for years, but has learned the importance of eating right and taking certain vitamins; the doctor has even prescribed some. The other day my close relative was concerned about this friend and asked if she’d ever tried several particular supplements that are known to help. Her friend’s response was that she actually has some of those. “Yes,” my relative said, “but have you been taking them?” Her response was something like, “Well, they’re in my cupboard.”
Those vitamins might as well have been hidden in plain sight. It was then that I realized that the pieces of the puzzle were not missing, I just had been overlooking what was right in front of me the whole time. All I needed to do was put them together, and then…live it.
Here is the passage that contains the puzzle pieces:
Philippians 4:6-9, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy–meditate on these things. 9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.”
How do we get and keep this incredible gift of peace?
First puzzle piece: do not be anxious about anything.
Second puzzle piece: pray with thanks.
Third puzzle piece: meditate on eight specific things.
Fourth puzzle piece: practice what you have learned in your mind, believed in your heart, understood with your ears, and perceived with your eyes.
Puzzle Piece #1: Do Not Be Anxious
To begin with, we attain this peace by not doing something. Philippians 4:6 begins, “Do not be anxious about anything.” Number one. This is a command. Do not ever, ever, ever be anxious, not about anything, at any time, or in any way. This is not negotiable. Now, what are we not to do ever? Be anxious.
Now, the Greek word for “worry” (merimnao) in this passage, “In New Testament times…was primarily used in connection with worryabout finances,hunger, or some other basic provision of life. It pictured a person who is fretful about paying his bills; a person who is worried he won’t have the money to purchase food and clothes for his family’s needs or pay his house payment or apartment rent on time; or a person who is anxious about his ability to cope with the daily necessities of life…” Literally, in the Greek this “anxiety” disrupts and divides the mind. When we allow for any care, any emotion, any fear, it brings disruption to our personality and mind (The Complete Word Study Dictionary, pg 960). It creates a divided and splintered mind.
In what way is our mind being divided? Divide us from what? God’s breath of life.
A Divided, Suffocated Mind
“Matthew 13:22 says, “He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world…choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.” The word “care” is the Greek word merimnao [i.e. anxiety], again connected to material worries and concerns. Jesus says such worry “chokes” the Word. The word “choke” is the Greek word sumpnigo, which means to suffocate, to smother, to asphyxiate, to choke, or to throttle. You see, worry is so all-consuming in an individual’s mind that it literally chokes him. It is a suffocating, smothering force that throttles his whole life to a standstill,” (Rick Renner, “Are Worry and Anxiety Trying to Seize or Control You?”).
Thus, anxiety brings death. But, God’s word is life (Philippians 2:16). As Jesus so profoundly said in John 6:63, “63 It is the Spirit who gives life…The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.”
But, when God’s word is choked out by a divided mind, it brings suffocation and death. This is demonstrated in Genesis 3:1-5. “1 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” 2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ” 4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
Eve knew what God had said. But through the serpent’s words, she began to doubt God’s word, and emotions were stirred within her that had never before been felt. Was it possibly anxiety that God was withholding good things from her? Even so, the word of God was choked by words of the serpent that caused her mind to be divided by doubt and troubling, anxious thoughts.
Joshua and Caleb vs the Ten Other Guys
In Numbers 13:1-2, 25-28, 30-33 we find a story of contrasting faith and doubt. “And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,2 Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel: of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a man, every one a ruler among them…And they returned from searching of the land after forty days.26 And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel…and shewed them the fruit of the land.27 And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it.28 Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there…30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.31 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.”
Anxiety makes everything else bigger than God. A good example of this is carrying boxes. When one is carrying a pile of boxes–and I mean a pile that goes up to or above one’s head–one finds it impossible to see beyond the boxes in one’s arms. In order to move forward, one has to attempt to peek around the boxes. Really, this is not a good way to transport boxes, for one’s field of vision is severely disrupted. Even so, when we get a pile of life events or emotions front and center in our arms and in front of our eyes and at the forefront of our minds, we will be unable to see God or His word. Furthermore, when carrying all of our boxed problems, we cannot receive the gift of peace that God wants to give us. Can we? If our arms are already full, we can’t accept anything new to carry.
This is what happened with the twelve spies. Ten of the twelve spies saw only the facts through the dim lens of doubt and anxiety, and the multitude believed them. Time after time, God had done wonders among the children of Israel. Time after time He had met their needs and showed forth His power in their midst, from the twelve plagues in Egypt, to the parting of the Red Sea, to the destruction of the Egyptians that sought to kill them, to manna from the sky, to abundant quail, to water from the rock, to their very clothes not wearing out, to abundant riches acquired from Egyptian households, and yet they still could only see impossibilities and questioned not only God’s power and provision, but even accused God of trying to kill them (Exodus 14:11; Exodus 16:3; Numbers 20:4). They were full of anxiety and fear and the facts that lay before them, so much so, that they were blinded to God’s truth and even to the very miracles of God.
Yet, Caleb too had seen the same facts, but he had learned, believed, heard and seen the wonders of God, and knew that if God was for them who could be against them.
Are We Like Our Mother Or Our Brother?
When anxiety divides our minds, it causes doubts to cloud our thoughts concerning what God has said; it spiritually suffocates us, cuts us off from God’s life-giving word, and the repercussions of that suffocation are endless, including physical illness. After all, science has proven that upwards to 87% of all diseases are caused by and/or exacerbated by fear-based emotions that send out deadly chemicals into our bodies.
In Adam and Eve’s case, they spiritually died in the garden that day (Ephesians 2:1; Colossians 2:13), and brought inevitable death to the human race.
In the case of the children of Israel, all of them died in the wilderness, including the ten spies who caused their hearts to melt (Joshua 14:8). All of them died except for the two men who defied the facts and unwaveringly believed God: Joshua and Caleb. Both of them led their people into battle in the promised land, for they were as strong in their eighties as they had been in their forties (Numbers 14:11 says this of Caleb in particular). It is known that Caleb was age 85 when he was given the city of Hebron, that’s south Jerusalem, as a reward for his faithfulness to God (Joshua 14:6-13). And the very giants, the Anakim, of which the children of Israel had been terrified, 85 year-old Caleb defeated in that very city (Joshua 15:14).
So, what are we not to do? Be anxious.
What causes anxiety? Focusing on everything else and making everything else bigger instead of focusing on God’s word and allowing God to be as awesome as He is.
What does anxiety cause? Death…because it suffocates the Word of God out of us.
Anxiety makes our problems huger than God. In order to receive God’s peace, we must gain a proper perspective, but this requires letting our anxiety go. If we want God’s peace, we must obey this command to not be anxious. In order for God to be able to hand us His peace, our hands need to be free. God wants to give us His peace, but we cannot receive it until we drop the boxes of anxiety and fear and doubt and depression that we’ve been carrying. So, it’s time to drop the boxes, and accept the free gift of God’s peace, and let God be our focus and not the giants. In spite of all that is happening our world today (persecution on the rise, the mark of the breast in the making, the new world order coming together, and then the normal stresses of life like loss of job, broken dreams, relationship issues), let us choose to hold on to the peace of God. May we value it above all else. This is a choice. Let’s choose wisely.
Jehovah Shalom, the LORD of peace is again our topic today–in these crazy days of 2020 when it seems that crazy is the norm. Last time we learned about both Gideon and Peter (in the article “Jehovah Shalom: What Is Our Focus?” https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2020/11/19/what-is-our-focus/), and the importance of keeping our eyes on the LORD of peace in spite of our insurmountable problems. Their problems were very real and very dangerous–just like ours–but they learned that the LORD of peace was greater still. The facts were all against them, but God’s truth was on their side. Gideon faced a multitudinous army compared to locusts both in number and destructiveness, yet with 300 men attained victory because the god of peace was with them. Peter faced an overwhelming wind and indomitable sea, yet walked upon it so long as his eyes were on Jesus. Through the stories of these two men, we learn that no matter what we are facing, the LORD of peace promises us peace that is not like what the world gives; Jesus overcame the world, and in so doing, reminds us that we are to be of good cheer when Jesus is our focus.
Let us continue focusing on our LORD of Peace and the type of peace that He gives to us. This time our story is in Philippi, and our characters are Paul and Silas.
To begin with, according to Jesus, His peace is not like what the world gives. What does this mean? The world’s concept of peace is everything being just the way you want it to be on the outside. For example, what it would consider peace is if our bodies worked right, our food was fixed just the way we wanted it, we all had our own home, could drive our own car, go on vacations, have our dream job or no job at all, and on a larger scale, no world wars, no persecution of Christians, and no more politics as usual in Washington D.C.
However, the peace that Jesus gives is not like that. It is an inner peace that has nothing at all to do with circumstances. We catch a glimpse of this peace in action in the book of Acts.
Acts 16:9-10, 14-19, 22-30 states, “And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.10 And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia…to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, and a colony: and we were in that city abiding certain days…14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.15 And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.19 And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers…22 And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them.23 And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely:24 Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.27 And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
So what is going on here? Paul had a vision, and Paul and Silas and Luke (the writer) and others with them, firmly believed that they were to go into Macedonia and specifically to Philippi. So, they confidently went. While there, many begin coming to the Lord, including a prominent woman named Lydia, many other women and their households, and things appear to be going well. Then, a girl, a simple girl, keeps following them around and announcing them wherever they go. There is nothing wrong with what she said, but, the spirit behind it was evil. And Paul finally cast the demon out of her. Sounds good. Sound wonderful. The girl is now no longer tormented by a devil, and the people don’t have to hear her declarations anymore. But, her owners are livid and stir up a crowd. She, or rather the demon inside of her, had been their moneymaker. The whole town wild with indignation, have Paul and Silas beaten over and over and over again, and then throw them into the inner most part of the dank and dark prison where they are enchained. So, they are bleeding, cold (because of shock), it might be stuffy with no air flow so deep in the dungeon too; they are hurting, have been treated unjustly, and are on top of it all, they are enchained so that they cannot move. Now, it’s midnight and what would you be doing if you had just undergone all that they had?
But they did not cry. They did not weep. They did not get angry at God who sent them there. They did not worry about tomorrow. They did not worry about their wounds. They were not fearful about what was next.
No. They were praying, and they were singing. Now, how could they do that?
Philippians 4:6-7 (written to church of that same city) explains how. First it says, “Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.6 Be careful for nothing,” – that is, do not be anxious or worried – “but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Rick Renner explains some of the Greek to us when he writes, “…I want to draw your attention to the word “passeth” in the verse above…This Greek word denotes a peace so superior that it is held high above all other types of peace. This is a peace that transcends, outdoes, surpasses, excels, rises above,goes beyondand over the top of any other kind of peace. The implication is that people may try to find peace in other places, but there is no peace like the peace of God. The peace of God completely outshines every other attempt to produce peace, causing it to stand in a category by itself. There is absolutely nothing in the world that can compare with the peace of God.” (Rick Renner, “Peace That Passes Understanding,” https://renner.org/peace-that-passes-understanding/ )
And what is brought to mind regarding this peace is, there are rich people in this world. They have everything. Their circumstances are amazing. They have a mansion, they have maids, they have cooks, they have vacations, they have vacation homes, they have their own jet, everything that the world would consider peaceful, but they have no peace inside.
And then, you have someone like the wife of Preacher George Young who is the author of one of the hymn “God Leads Us Along”, was left in abject poverty, and ended up in the poorest of the Poor Houses. A reporter came to find her to interview her about something, and he asked directions to her place of residence. When he found out where she was, he felt sure he would find her depressed and in despair. What he did find astounded him. For she was not even close to despair, but rather, was joyful. She was bubbling over with joy, for she told him there were many coming there who did not know Jesus and she got to share the Gospel with them. Her impoverished circumstances did not affect her adversely, because she had an inner peace that could not be touched.
“Paul continues to tell us that this peace surpasses and excels above “all understanding.” The word “understanding” is the Greek word nous, the classical Greek word for the mind. This word refers to the ability to think, to reason, to understand…the source of all human emotions. In Greek, the word “mind” represents the inner powers of a person and thus the place from which a person rules and controls his environment and the world around him. The Greek word emphatically depicts the mind as the central control center for a human being. Therefore, it was understood that the condition of the mindis what determined the condition of one’s life.
Then Paul tells us what this powerful peace will produce in our lives! He says that this peace “…shall keep your hearts and minds….” The word “keep” is the Greek word phroureo, a military term that expresses the idea of soldiers who stood faithfully at their post at the city gates to guard and control all who went in and out of the city. They served as gate monitors, and no one entered or exited the city without their approval.
The apostle Paul uses this word phroureo to explicitly tell us that God’s peace, if allowed to work in our lives, will stand at the gates of our hearts and minds, acting like a guard to control and monitor everything that tries to enter our hearts, minds, and emotions. When God’s peace is ruling us, nothing can get past that divine “guard” and slip into our hearts and minds without its approval!” (Rick Renner, “Peace That Passes Understanding,” https://renner.org/peace-that-passes-understanding/).
Peace has nothing to do with our circumstances, but is a gift given to us in spite of our circumstances. We cannot change our circumstances, but we can steer the ship of our hearts away from the craggy rocks of life. True peace is not living near a stagnate, untroubled pool, but rather, is like a trusting little bird perched on the end of a branch overhanging a frothing waterfall. It is the Apostle Paul and Silas praying and singing while in pain and bleeding, unjustly enchained in a Philippian jail cell. It is Job saying “Though God slay me, yet will I trust Him.” It is Shadrach, Meshach and Abedinego unafraid of Nebuchadnezzar’s wrathful fiery furnace when they would not bow down and worship the image. It is Martin Luther nailing the 95 theses to the church door, daringly calling the Church to repentance. It is Handel’s Messiah played in the foulest ghetto. It is the unconquerable smile on the gaunt and scared faces of the persecuted Church worldwide. It is the tiniest piece of heaven while living in the midst of hell. As the Psalmist says so eloquently, “if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there” (Psalm 139:8b). It is YOU in the midst of 2020 madness; it is YOU when YOU chose to sing hymns to God and pray undaunted though everything is out of control. This is the peace that Jesus, the Prince of Peace, promised and so generously gives to those who will receive it. God is still Jehovah Shalom, the LORD of peace. Let’s let Him be who He is in our lives today.
In Bible days, cities were walled in for protection, and a watchman was set on that wall to guard the city by night. The entire city trusted this watchman to stay awake and to sound the shofar (like a trumpet made from a ram’s horn) if there was danger. Without the watchman sounding the alarm, the entire sleeping, trusting city could be wiped out. Ezekiel 33 states, “…3 when he [the watchman] sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people, 4 then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head. 5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.’”
Three things are swiftly approaching us right now, even at Warp Speed: God’s Judgment, Christ’s Return, and a Betrayal.
Morning and Night Simultaneously
In Isaiah 21 we read, “”Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?” 12 The watchman said, “The morning comes, and also the night. If you will inquire, inquire; Return! Come back!”
This is exactly what is happening right now. The morning is indeed coming — Christ’s SOON return for His Bride. But with it also is coming the night — God’s Judgment other wise known as the Great Tribulation or Jacob’s Trouble. Both of these are racing toward us at Warp Speed, and there is no way off this ride. Thus, God is calling each of us to inquire of Him, to seek Him, and to repent and return to Him before it is too late.
God’s Immanent Judgment
The time of Great Tribulation/Jacob’s Trouble is coming on the whole world because of its abominable sin and hard, unrepentant hearts. As Isaiah 24 tells us, “1 Behold, the Lord makes the earth empty and makes it waste, Distorts its surface And scatters abroad its inhabitants. 2 And it shall be: As with the people, so with the priest; As with the servant, so with his master; As with the maid, so with her mistress; As with the buyer, so with the seller; As with the lender, so with the borrower; As with the creditor, so with the debtor. 3 The land shall be entirely emptied and utterly plundered, For the Lord has spoken this word. 4 The earth mourns and fades away, The world languishes and fades away; The haughty people of the earth languish. 5 The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, Because they have transgressed the laws, Changed the ordinance, Broken the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore the curse has devoured the earth, And those who dwell in it are desolate. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, And few men are left.” Indeed, this is “the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth,” Revelation 3:10b.
Christ’s Immanent Return
But along with this, Jesus, speaking to the faithful Church (Bride) in Revelation 3:10-11, says, “10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. 11 Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.” “16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words,” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18.
The Immanent Betrayal
On top of these earth-shaking, earth-shattering events that are swiftly approaching the Church and the world, an insidious betrayal is also coming upon us at Warp Speed: the VACCINE. And it is about this that I am also warning. Today we are facing such an intrusion. Only this time, it is at the hand of those who we trust, those who should be defending us are betraying us… In the words of Julius Caesar, “Et tu, Brute?” And I am today sounding the shofar and sending forth a warning for any and all who will listen, for this is coming upon the whole world.
So, what is this new vaccine that they are rolling out at warp speed? Since I am not a doctor but have researched this greatly, I will summarize what medical experts have said, and will provide a LONG LIST of sources at the bottom. And what I ask is that you take this seriously. Remember, when the disciples asked Jesus for the sign of the end of the age in Matthew 24, the main sign that Jesus mentioned first and foremost and then over and over again was DECEPTION. Please, do not be deceived.
Sounding the Alarm,

The COVID-19 Vaccine: What Is It Really?
To begin with, it is not a vaccine and has not been proven to protect anyone from infection or transmission. And, as of April 30, 2021 there have been upwards to 4,000 “documented” deaths surrounding these vaccines, and now nearly 5000 at the end of May.This is an experiment.
Think about this: the virus is so deadly that one must be tested to see if one has it, and upwards to 99% of people completely and without complication recover from it. And for this virus “they” insist that one must take a vaccine that is known to have killed ferrets because of antibody dependent enhancement in the clinical trials and has never been fully approved (not since 2002 when they began studying and experimenting with corona virus vaccines) by the FDA (it only has Emergency Use Authorization).
Below is some general info about it, what is in it, what can be expected from it, and how it will alter us genetically, whether we immediately feel it physically or not.
Both the Pfizer and Moderna are mRNA vaccines, and are gene therapy. The J&J as well as the AstraZenica vaccines are a bit different, for instead of using mRNA (like Pfizer and Moderna) that sends out its message throughout ones genes which irreversibly alters one’s genetics, the J&J has “taken an Adenovirus…that causes the cold and they’ve shelled it out. And then they’ve taken a “spike protein and they’ve put it inside the Adenovirus shell in order to grow that and replicate it and make it grow.” (quote from Dr. Tenpenny, https://player.lightcast.com/zUjMyQTM). However, that protein is foreign to your body, and thus, your body treats it as an invader, activating your toll-like receptors and immune response and a multiplicity of things begin happening to fight off the invader. These little receptors, according to Dr. Tenpenny, “separate self from non-self.”
All of the vaccines utilize aborted fetal tissue in some capacity as well.
The new vaccine is not merely a vaccine — speaking of the Pfizer and Modern specifically –, for according to Dr. Northrup “there has never been a vaccine like this. It is an RNA vaccine. It’s what’s called transfection. It will fundamentally change people’s DNA.” After all, ‘transfection’ is how scientists have been genetically changing organisms for years–like genetically modified fruits and vegetables which are known to not be as healthy or nutritious and whose seeds eventually no longer reproduce, which is completely contrary to what God made. Transfection is an irreversible change.
“The formation of mRNA occurs inside the nucleus by the process called transcription using a DNA template. It carries the genetic information of a gene to produce a protein. The main function of mRNA is to direct the synthesis of proteins by carrying the coding information from a DNA template to the site of protein synthesis: the ribosome.” https://www.differencebetween.com/difference-between-dna-and-vs-mrna/ The mRNA delivers the recipe to the ribosomes, and this is then duplicated throughout the body.
The recipe delivered by the mRNA in these vaccines was designed in a lab. What they are aiming for are anti-spike antibodies, but these can do more damage than good such as autoimmune diseases, neurological problems, cardiovascular conditions, etc.
It not only contains metals that make us a sort of antenna for 5G, but also contains the DNA of other species (monkeys, pig, etc.) all mixed together, called ‘recombinant’ DNA (i.e. rDNA). “In genetic engineering, scientists use recombinant DNA created in the laboratory or extracted from an organism to add to the genome of another organism. Because of the universal design of DNA, the recombinant DNA does not have to stay in the same species. This means that scientists can easily add genes from one species into bacteria to produce a product.” https://biologydictionary.net/recombinant-dna/ Adding non-human DNA into our bodies, in effect, makes us chimeras. According to the Britannica online, a “Chimera, in genetics, an organism or tissue that contains at least two different sets of DNA…The term is derived from the Chimera of Greek mythology, a fire-breathing monster that was part lion, part goat, and part dragon.” https://www.britannica.com/science/chimera-genetics
The plan is to eventually utilize the patented bio-luminescent dye called Luciferase enzyme, which when injected, creates a sort of barcode light tattoo beneath the skin which can be read by any smart device; this will eventually be used as the proof of your vaccination. The Luciferase must be administered differently — using a sort of band-aid with tiny needles. It’s administration resembles that of a snake bite.
However, the vaccines do contain (upwards to 98%) Graphene Oxide (GO) in the vaccine. According to an article titled, “What is Graphene Oxide?” “The icon for graphene is three hexagonal graphene particles, or 6³,” which for your information is 6x6x6. Furthermore, “These particular nanoparticles remain un-magnetic when they are in an sub-zero degree environment, but they become magnetic when they reach the same temperature as the human body. This may explain the now undeniable phenomenon of countless people displaying magnetic properties after getting the jab.” (“What Is Graphene Oxide?” July 9, 2019, https://carter-heavy-industries.com/2021/07/09/what-is-graphene-oxide/) Remember, how cold the vaccine vials needed to be? Well, perhaps this explains it. Plus, “GO has interesting optical properties: It can fluoresce over a wide range of wavelengths and also effectively quench the fluorescence of other fluorescent dyes called fluorophores. These characteristics give GO the potential as a useful fluorescence label for optical imaging.” (“Graphene Nanomaterials: Properties, Processes and Applications,” 2017,https://www.mpoweruk.com/graphene.htm)
Lee Austin on the Before It’s News website astutely states, “Big Pharma is correct when they emphatically state their jab doesn’t contain Luciferase. However, it appears the graphene contained within the operating system of the shot does create Luciferase once it gets inside the body. In essence, graphene turns light into an electrical current, having the fluorescent properties of a biosensor, an analytical device, used for the sensing of chemical substances, merging the biology of man with a synthetic detector.” (“Graphene Creates Luciferase & A Fluorescent Electrical Current,” article by Lee Austin, July 19, 2021, https://beforeitsnews.com/spirit/2021/07/graphene-creates-luciferase-a-fluorescent-electrical-current-2519632.html).

Furthermore, this vaccine contains a Hydrogel which was created by DARPA, the Department of Advanced Research Projects Agency. DARPA is apart of the Department of Defense. Hydrogel is nanotechnology–microscopic robots, nanoparticles, quantum dots, artificial intelligence, that will be able to assemble, disassemble and reassemble when in your body and will connect with other artificial intelligence via smart devices, 5G and the Cloud. This connection will be 24/7 without a break. And no one knows who will be reading this information or what they will be doing with it. This spells the end of autonomy and individual privacy. Everything you do individually will be known every second of the day.
“Polyethylene glycol is derived from petroleum and is made from ethylene glycol. Right off the bat, it should be obvious from these names that it is not a naturally occurring product. As an extra tidbit, ethylene glycol is the primary ingredient in anti-freeze.” https://www.migredients.com/is-polyethylene-glycol-safe-to-ingest/ Furthermore, this can cause big allergic reactions, “anaphylactic shock”.
This works in conjunction with Graphene Oxide. Graphene Oxide is explained more below.
Patent 060606 and 666
And to add insult to injury, on March 26, 2020, Microsoft obtained patent number 060606 for their Crypto Currency. Through this newly patented technology, all financial information will also be recorded next to our physical/emotional information in the Cloud. So, not only will they know all about us internally, but also monetarily. Plus, people will, in effect be owned under this patent after it is applied via this vaccine.
If the rest is not diabolical enough, to top everything off as an absolute affront to God, the COVID-19 vaccine contains aborted fetal cell lines. Though site after site online will tell you that it is not “tissue” that is used, they are just playing a game of semantics. In the Astra-Zeneca vaccine, for instance, they use what is called MRC-5 which is a “diploid human cell culture line…originally developed from research deriving lung tissue of a 14-week-old, Caucasian male fetus.” So, even though they deny aborted fetal tissue is in the COVID-19 vaccine, the fact remains that fetal tissue was and is very much a part of many vaccines including the one for COVID.
As for the J&J that uses replication in its development,living tissue must be used. The living tissue that they are using comes from at least two aborted fetal cell lines. One is called PCR.C6 which is retinal tissue. The other is HEK which is from kidney tissue.
Here is a quote from an article regarding Moderna and Pfizer and the fetal cell line used in its development. “…it’s important to identify the provenance of the cells used in testing. In the case of both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, it was HEK 293 kidney cells that were used. These are believed to have originated with an abortion…They were originally gleaned from a 1973 procedure in the Netherlands and have since been reproduced in labs for various research purposes.” https://www.nationalreview.com/2020/12/the-facts-about-the-pfizer-and-moderna-vaccines-and-fetal-cell-lines/
Though many doctors explain this away, saying that it is not really fetal tissue or use some other verbal gymnastics, truly, no matter how old the cell line is, they are still the cells of an aborted baby.
Really, this article though correct regarding fetal cells in the J&J vaccine, is incorrect regarding Pfizer and Moderna, for both of those also involve an aborted fetal cell line from 1973 according to the National Review article quoted above.
Essentially Graphene Oxide is a toxin. This toxin is not only present in all of the COVID-19 vaccines, but it also causes the symptoms of what they are calling Sars-CoV-2. Graphene has been transmitted via masks, swabs, previous flu vaccines and now all of the COVID-19 vaccines. Thus, all of the masking and swabbing and even flu vaccines actually helped to bring about the “illness” they are calling COVID-19 in people which made them believe the story fed them by the governments of the world and which was propagated by the media. Really, however, they are slowly being killed, and with their government’s knowledge and even approval. Furthermore, this Graphene Oxide causes the odd magnetism in people after the jabs, and will work in conjunction with 5G when it is fully turned on.
Quote: “…a whopping 98-99% of the content of the vaccination vial corresponds to graphene oxide.” “Researchers have shown that the human immune system handles GO in a manner similar to pathogens. Delgado states that the GO in the experimental shot is indeed causing thrombi and deaths. The phenomenon of blood clotting as one side-effect among others from C19 shots is now well documented, and the clot-inducing property of atomically thin graphene oxide sheets is also well-known.All the major C19 shots are manufactured using the same graphene oxide nano-technology. These particular nanoparticles remain un-magnetic when they are in an sub-zero degree environment, but they become magnetic when they reach the same temperature as the human body. This may explain the now undeniable phenomenon of countless people displaying magnetic properties after getting the jab.”
Graphene Oxide works in conjunction with Polyethylene Glycol as explained in this abstract: “Functionalized graphene oxide serves as a novel vaccine nano-adjuvant for robust stimulation of cellular immunity,” Feb 14, 2016, https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/26814441/
Quote: “…graphene derivatives have attracted great attention in biomedicine. In this study, we carefully engineered graphene oxide (GO) as a vaccine adjuvant for immunotherapy…Polyethylene glycol (PEG) and various types of polyethylenimine (PEI) were used as coating polymers…certain dual-polymer modified GOs (GO-PEG-PEI) can act as a positive modulator to promote the maturation of dendritic cells (DCs) and enhance their cytokine secretion through the activation of multiple toll-like receptor (TLR) pathways…Moreover, this GO-PEG-PEI can serve as an antigen carrier to effectively shuttle antigens into DCs. These two advantages enable GO-PEG-PEI to serve as a novel vaccine adjuvant.”
Beware: It is quite possible that the first round of vaccine will be harmless to make it look innocent. They could even be saline solutions instead.
“They” can’t have too many people dropping dead right away until more have it. After all, “they” want the whole world to be inoculated.
Do not be deceived by the silence or the fear.

Official FDA LIST: Adverse Events/Side Effects
On top of this, I just came across something that left me weeping. I stumbled on this official information. It’s from the FDA, and appears to be a power point presentation: “Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee October 22, 2020 Meeting Presentation,” https://www.fda.gov/media/143557/download?fbclid=IwAR1_2o9NqpB6zSIBbgOVNAagnhzwMT3Dl6-KG-euW0QunZMb3jnSSTRm-5w Here is the info from page 16/17 of the FDA presentation: “FDA Safety Surveillance of COVID-19 Vaccines – DRAFT – Working list of possible adverse event outcomes; ***Subject to change***”:
NO. Not yet. So long as it is not a symbol of worship, and so long as the Luciferase, which is a barcode made of light, is not in the vaccine – and it is not at this time – it is not yet the mark of the beast. Plus, the nanoparticles in it have not yet been activated by 5G. According to Anthony Patch this vaccine is the mark of the beast, but it is simply not yet active. I can agree with this as long as it also is said that it will not be activated until each person pledges allegiance to the beast and has the Luciferase light tattoo/barcode added via the patch band-aid that will insert it beneath the skin via needles that resemble a snake bite. (Anthony Patch, “God Intended for Good,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYTMix_uCLM). It is very clear from Revelation 13 that the mark of the beast is about worship and allegiance to the Beast system.
That being said, even though it is not the mark, it is a precursor to it, and its purpose appears to be invasive at best and for the destruction of the image of God at worst, and possibly out-and-out murder.Furthermore, it could be said to be a symbol of worship right now. How long have we made westernized medicine and doctors and nurses like gods who can do no wrong? How long have we been in denial that we have been honoring medical professionals more than God, seeking their help more than God, trusting in them more than God, following their prescriptions more than Scripture, placing them on pedestals where they do not belong, even on thrones of honor and high esteem? Could this not be called worship?
According to a good number of doctors, including osteopath Dr. Carrie Madej, biotechnologist and president of Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute (SCPI) Dr. Theresa Deisher, OBGYN and New York Time’s Best Selling author Dr. Christiane Northrup, psychiatrist Dr. Andrew Kaufman, geneticist and scientist Alexandra Henrion Caude, Professor Dolores Cahill – molecular biologist and immunologist, osteopath Dr. Tenpenny, and virologist Dr. Judy Mikovits (just to name a few of a large number of doctors concerned about this unethical vaccine), this is not just a vaccine. Indeed, “Klaus Schwab [of the World Economic Forum] admits that the Great Reset will ‘Lead To Fusion Of Our Physical, Digital, & Biological Identity.’” And then of course there is the foul purpose of population control. What is happening is insidious and evil and so few know about it. So, please, be one of those who is aware and will not put trust in that which is not trustworthy.
I am sounding the alarm…now do what you will with it?
***ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONwith an abundance of sources that follow!***
One Way to Take Action: Children’s Health Defense
Since 1986 Vaccine makers under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act have been protected from liability, and now “will be even more protected against COVID vaccine injuries. As reported by Mercola.com, in March, the Federal Register published a “Declaration Under the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act for Medical Countermeasures Against COVID-19” which effectively sets up a new COVID “vaccine court.”” “…on September 21, HHS Secretary Alex Azar told FOX Business that all Operation Warp Speed vaccine manufacturers would be exempt from liability for any damages their vaccines may cause and that those who administer their vaccines would also not be liable for damages.” This means, if anyone is made sick or dies or is irreparably damaged by the vaccine, one cannot sue the vaccine manufacturer. You take it at your own risk.
All COVID-19 vaccines have been tested for less than a year. In October, Johnson and Johnson stopped their phase 3 trials because of a mysterious vaccine related illness. “In May, Moderna’s vaccine was shown to have a 20% “serious” injury rate in its high-dose group — one participant in the Moderna trial said he became “the sickest in his life” after taking the vaccine. In September, AstraZeneca paused its vaccine trial after a participant suffered symptoms consistent with transverse myelitis, a neurological disorder that can result in weakness of the limbs, problems emptying the bladder and paralysis. AstraZeneca has since resumed clinical trials in the UK, Brazil, India and South Africa. But the trials remain on hold in the U.S.” Mary Holland of Children’s Health Defense said concerning the Pfizer vaccine, “Because there’s never been a licensed mRNA vaccine before, we really don’t know what injuries are going to look like…the long-term injuries are a complete unknown.””
Strangely, Fauci stated in October that the vaccine would only eliminate symptoms but would not kill the virus. In the British Journal of Medicine, Dr. Peter Doshi focuses on two pertinent issues regarding this vaccine. “First, none of the leading vaccine candidate trials is designed to test if the vaccine can reduce severe COVID-19 symptoms, defined as: hospital admissions, ICU or death. And, second, the trials are not designed to test if the vaccine can interrupt transmission.”
So, what is this vaccine really about? Fauci did not even think the shot being developed by Moderna needed to be tested on monkeys or ferrets. Even Pfizer bypassed the usual animal test studies, and opted instead to begin using children. Do you really like the idea of being a human guinea pig?
Investments & Secret Contracts
From the U.S. government, to the National Institute of Health (NIH), to the Stock Market, even Fauci and Bill Gates and others have big money invested in the production of this vaccine for Operation Warp Speed. 50% of Moderna, a highly secretive company run mostly by the military, is owned by NIH, and though Moderna has never in its ten years of operation produced “a single commercial vaccine,” it is now a front runner. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (run by Fauci) contracted with Moderna as well. “Under another NIAID contract, the Pentagon is required to buy 500 million doses of Moderna’s COVID vaccine for $9 billion.” Indeed, “while most Americans were distracted by the first U.S. presidential debate, NPR quietly reported that the U.S. government’s Operation Warp Speed…had taken the unusual step of awarding contracts to vaccine companies, not directly, but through a secretive defense contractor.” Secret? Why is this covert? It’s just a vaccine…right? It’s for our good…right? If so, then why all this secrecy?
These sources may not be in operation for much longer. So, please view them ASAP. All social media sites (such as facebook and youtube) are deleting and muting videos that express the truth and dare to question this vaccine.

“A World Jabbed Into Submission,” May 27, 2021, by Tony Koretz of A Minute to Midnite, https://aminutetomidnite.com/2021/05/27/a-world-jabbed-into-submission/ (According to the CDC, as of May 17th there have been 4, 647 corona vaccine related deaths and 227,805 vaccine injuries/related adverse events. At the 1 minute mark, Pierre Gilbert at a special conference in a 1996 video clip, speaks about the goal of vaccines. He states that vaccines will be mandatory in order that they might be a means to control people via liquid crystals in the brain that when communicated with via low frequency waves will render people unable to think. Besides this, the vaccine will contaminate the human bloodstream which will in turn create “intentional infections”. At about the 3 minute mark, an important word is given from the Israeli People’s Committee‘s Chairman Dr. Pinky Feinstein, Psychiatrist, as he reports on the adverse events related to corona virus vaccine. This Committee is independent from the Israeli government. According to their numbers, during the vaccination period of January-March 2021, the age group 20-29 year olds has seen an increase of 30% in mortality compared to last year at the same time. Around 250,000 of the Israeli people did not show up to get the second dose of the vaccine.)

State by state, America is locking down again: Oregon, Washington, California, Michigan, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Delaware, West Virginia, Indiana, and now Ohio… And the world is locking down again: Australia, most of Europe including England, France, Germany, Spain, Italy…
And these lockdowns are accompanied by protests rife with frustration, destroyed businesses, imploding economies, and a fearful and depressed populace. Indeed, the really real pandemic and threat is that of emotional upheaval demonstrated through depression, anxiety, and fear, leading to alcoholism, drug abuse and even suicide. And Christians are included in this emotional pandemic.
Are you dealing with this perchance? Are you depressed? Are you feeling anxious? Are you afraid? How are you dealing with the lockdown, with losing your job, having your hours cut, being far away from you family, having your church closed, social distancing, facing a lawsuit for practicing your Christian faith, having to wear a mask when going to the store, your kids being home all the time, an overwhelming illness etc.? How are you doing if you are one of those who “knows too much” about this plandemic, the transhuman/chimerical/DNA altering vaccine, and the elite’s agenda for a new world order that is unfolding? How are you holding up?
Through Christ’s death we have received many benefits/gifts as listed in Isaiah 53. He bore our griefs, carried our sorrows, was dishonored for our rebellion, was crushed for our depravity, was disciplined for the sake of our peace, and by his wounds and bruises and stripes we are healed. Psalm 103 also lists the benefits of forgiveness, healing, redemption, a crown of lovingkindness and tender mercies, satisfaction and restoration of youthfulness. Whatever your emotional state at this time in human history and no matter where you are worldwide, let’s remember one of those many benefits (Psalm 68:19) that Jesus through His sacrificial death and resurrection gave to us freely if we will but receive it: peace. Isaiah 53 says that Jesus was disciplined for our peace.
There is a lot that could be said about this peace. To begin with, this is a peace between God and man. Secondly, it is a peace in spite of circumstances. Thirdly, and most importantly, it is a peace that only God has given and can and will give.
In the book of Judges we find a story about Jehovah Shalom, “The LORD is peace.” Judges 6 begins by saying that Israel had done evil in God’s sight and because of that God had given Israel as a gift to Midian. Because of this, Israel was terribly oppressed even to the point of hiding in caves while Midian destroyed their crops and took all of their animals. It would be equivalent today of destroying all of our grocery stores, restaurants, the farms that produce all that, and taking anything edible away.
It is in this destitution and fear that we find Gideon secretly threshing wheat in a wine press. And a messenger of God appears to him as he hides in the wine press and addresses him as a mighty man of valor. One thing leads to another, and Gideon is gripped by the startling realization that he’s just seen a messenger of the LORD face to face. It is then that God speaks to him saying, “…Peace be unto thee; fear not: thou shalt not die.” Gideon is so moved by God’s words that it says, “…Gideon built an altar there unto the LORD, and called it Jehovah shalom…” which means, “The LORD is peace.”
Yet, there was no peace in any of Gideon’s circumstances. Many fearful obstacles still surrounded Gideon and would continue to face him. Nevertheless, he moved forward at the prompting of the LORD. He tore down his father’s altar to Baal and grove of trees wherein the Israelites committed idolatry. He then faced the zealous, idolatrous men who would have killed him on behalf of their fallen idol. He then successfully gathered 32,000 men to do battle against the Midianites, and after getting further confirmation from God, prepared for battle. The man who at the beginning of the story was hiding in a wine press, and who throughout the story kept asking for signs, was unmoved by his and his nation’s overwhelming circumstances in light of the God of peace who had appeared to him and had spoken directly to him.
And things got crazier! God said that 32,000 soldiers was too many! Judges 7:1-3 reads, “And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people that are with thee are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, Mine own hand hath saved me.3 Now therefore go to, proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, Whosoever is fearful and afraid, let him return and depart early from mount Gilead. And there returned of the people twenty and two thousand; and there remained ten thousand.”
So, there were to be ten thousand to fight against a multitude. Judges 7:12 says that “the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the children of the east lay along in the valley like grasshoppers for multitude; and their camels were without number, as the sand by the sea side for multitude.” Ten thousand against an enemy so countless that they were like a swarm of locusts blackening the sky and devastating all in their path.
But God was not finished. It got crazier! Judges 7:4-8 continues, “And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people are yet too many; bring them down unto the water, and I will try them for thee there: and it shall be, that of whom I say unto thee, This shall go with thee, the same shall go with thee; and of whomsoever I say unto thee, This shall not go with thee, the same shall not go.5 So he brought down the people unto the water: and the LORD said unto Gideon, Every one that lappeth of the water with his tongue, as a dog lappeth, him shalt thou set by himself; likewise every one that boweth down upon his knees to drink.6 And the number of them that lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, were three hundred men: but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water.7 And the LORD said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the other people go every man unto his place.8 So the people took victuals in their hand, and their trumpets: and he sent all the rest of Israel every man unto his tent, and retained those three hundred men: and the host of Midian was beneath him in the valley.”
Three hundred men. Three hundred men versus a multitude. But Gideon chose to rest in the LORD of peace, for the battle belonged to Him. And with the faith of that one man and the foolishness of three hundred men smashing pitchers and blowing on ram’s horns, God scattered the host of Midian and in their fear the enemy even killed each other.
The BIG Question
How big is our God? No I mean, how big is He in our lives today? When we are faced with great emotion, who is bigger? God or the emotion? Who is bigger? God or the problem? Who is bigger? God or the plandemic? Who is bigger? God or the vaccine? Who is bigger? God or the persecution? Who is bigger? God or the loneliness issue? Who is bigger? God or the loss of a job, the collapse of the economy, the destruction of our liberty, the frustrated protests, the unfolding of the new world order or . . . you think of your own situation whatever it might be? Who indeed is bigger? Has God become too small in our eyes?
You see, what we are focused on matters. Peter learned this first hand in Matthew 14.
Walking on the Water
In Matthew 14 we come upon a scene of amazing grandeur. There, Jesus has separated from His disciples and gone off to pray. The day had been wearying to Jesus and the disciples. Many had been healed, and it had ended in a mind-boggling multiplication of the five loaves and 2 fishes. The disciples had stood in shock as that meager amount fed a great multitude of hungry men, women and children. Now, Jesus had insisted on dismissing the enormous crowd himself and insisted that the disciples go ahead and sail to the other side of the great lake. He’d meet up with them later. Meanwhile, it says in verse 24 that they were in the middle of an agitated, restless sea that tossed their ship about as the wind blew antagonistically.
That of course is when Jesus appeared . . . walking on the water, and His disciples thought He must be a ghost. That’s when Jesus called out to them, and Peter daringly said, “Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.”
What was bigger in Peter’s eyes? On what was Peter focused? At first, as Peter stepped his feet out in faith upon that stormy sea, Jesus was bigger in Peter’s eyes. Step by step, he moved toward Jesus, focusing on Him, doing what no man has done before or since. But, after he took his eyes off of Jesus and focused on the wind thrashing about the choppy waves of the sea, he began to sink.
There is a difference between physical fact and spiritual truth. It was a fact that the army of Midian was enormous. But the truth was that God was greater. It was a fact that the wind was contrary and the waves rising, and that people plain and simply cannot walk on water, but the truth was that Jesus was the Lord of the wind and the waves (Psalm 93:5) and God alone treads upon the waves of the sea (Job 9:8). No matter how much Gideon planned or strategized, the army of Midian was still too vast and too numerous that even 32,000 men in their own strength could not have defeated them. General MacArthur himself could not have bombed, blasted or barricaded them away. And as for the sea, no one has ever tamed the sea nor ever will. Only God!
And indeed, it is no different in our lives when faced with the sea of anxiety and fear and emotions of all kinds, as well as army of physical problems, relationship issues, plandemics, or any circumstance that is overwhelming of unjust. It is then that the enemy of our entire being swarms upon us and rages against us like the fury of Midian, and we like Gideon hide in a wine press and wonder where God is. The sea comes crashing in and the wind threatens to sink us. But Jesus said in John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 16:33, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
Let’s choose today, while it is still today, to get our eyes off of the multitude that has come to destroy us, the wind and waves seeking to drown us, the tribulation that is overwhelming us, and choose instead to accept Jesus’ gift of peace that He paid for on the cross for us to have freely. Let’s get our eyes off the insanity of this world and back onto Jesus, and let Him be magnified in our eyes today.

“I have made You too small in my eyes O Lord, forgive me; I have believed in a lie That You were unable to help me. But now, O Lord, I see my wrong Heal my heart and show Yourself strong; And in my eyes and with my song O Lord, be magnified O Lord, be magnified.
Be magnified, O Lord You are highly exalted; And there is nothing You can’t do O Lord, my eyes are on You. Be magnified, O Lord, be magnified.
Be magnified, O Lord You are highly exalted; And there is nothing You can’t do O Lord, my eyes are on You. Be magnified, O Lord, be magnified.”
Here are a few Family Worship Center prophecies, tongues and interpretation, exhortation, that I pray you find encouraging and edifying. This is not an exhaustive list for 2020. Rather, these are some that I actually heard and that resonated with my spirit. Take them or leave them, but be sure to weigh them with Scripture.
Before sharing what God said at Family Worship Center — Jimmy Swaggart’s Baton Rouge, Louisiana church — I want to share 1 Corinthians 14:27-32 with you. Paul is speaking to a group of Christians in the city of Corinth regarding the gifts of the Spirit during the corporate worship service. Though some today say that the gifts passed away with the Apostles, Scripture does not teach us that. Here is what Paul teaches,
“If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.29 Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.30 If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace.31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.”
Now, it’s time to be edified!!!

“The Lord is saying “Look to me;” the Lord is saying, “Gaze upon me;” the Lord is saying “Meditate on Me; because the answer to everything is Me.””

(The first time)
Hear the word of the Lord. Hear the word of the Lord God. Thus saith the Lord God. I am He who loves you, and have washed you from your sins in my own blood. Because of my blood that I shed for you, because of My power of my Spirit in you, I say unto you, Church, ARISE! Go forward! Take this Word, take hold of this Word, for the Time is at hand, for the time is at hand. Say not, say ye not there are yet 4 months and then cometh the harvest. Behold! I say unto you, lift up your eyes, look on the fields, they are white already to harvest; they are white already to harvest; they are white already to harvest. I say to you, ARISE, Church. Go forward. Take hold of this Word. For the time is at hand. The time is at hand.

(the second time)
The word of the Lord comes, comes to you the second time, I have purchased you with my own blood. You are mine. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is and which was and which is to come. The almighty. What God is about to do He reveals to His Church. Behold! There comes Seven Years of great harvest, Seven Years of Great ____. Harvest as the sand of the sea, very much, without number. It is established by God. And God will shortly bring it to pass. This is Urgent. This is to be done Quickly. Bring all your gifts, bring all your tithes into my storehouse, into this work that I raise up, even to the placing of the beams. Giving, little or much, I am going to bless you, and fill you, fill whatever you lack. I know the name; I know the heart of every giver. I promise to pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh; my Spirit’s power is pouring fourth without limit, because I am your God and I am able. Whosoever, whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. I will do it, and you shall see it.

(tongues and interpretation of same person – Hispanic man?)
Time – for a sign not for the believer but for the unbeliever, and it is almost up, saith the Lord. I have given many warnings, says God, through my Word, but they are about to see My displeasure, says the Lord, for I hold true to my Word. As in the Temple when Solomon dedicated it, the anointing fell and even the ministers could not minister because of the power of God. I am going to anoint my ministers, and they will have a powerful convicting power of the Holy Spirit that my Word will be known, says God. And they shall be a power, and miracle working power and healing says the Lord. For my Church is a glorious Church, and they will see that I am God. Give head to My word, My great word, the word of the Cross says the Lord. For soon the trumpet will sound, says God. It shall come to pass!
As you listen to this video which was posted on November 17th by Pastor Dana Coverstone, I pray that your heart is open to hear from the Lord. No interpretation is needed, but after you have listened to the video, feel free to read my summary and commentary on it below.

This dream plays out a little like a movie, with Benjamin Franklin (one of America’s founding fathers–and the one who discovered electricity by flying a kite) flying an American flag kite with a small globe on a chain at the end on a stormy night. As he does so, instead of lightning striking the kite, the hand of God emerges from the heavens and grabs the kite and proceeds to squeeze it violently. Oil and water are rung from the kite even as oil and water rain from the sky and an oil slick sheen shimmers over God’s hand. While God rotates His hand back and forth, up and down, the noise of something being shifted inside is heard. Then, the rain stopped, and God’s hand opened up to show three things: diamonds, coal, and trash. With one breath, God blows the trash away, and all that was left was the diamonds the size of cars and coal the size of boulders. There was a great contrast between them. Great pressure had been placed on both of them. After God places them in lush green grass where Franklin can see them, Franklin proceeds to solemnly say, “I guess we are no longer a republic.” And the Father replied, “No. It’s mine now, as is the whole earth.” Franklin then asked, “Where did the globe go that was attached to the flag?” And God said, “It’s still being pressured for now, but will be released in good time. Franklin keep your glasses on, your eyes sharp, and stay committed to the Captain.”
So, what does this mean? Though this dream’s meaning is not shrouded in mystery by any means at all, yet because there is so much talk about these dreams, I thought I’d type something up that might be helpful just in case.
What immediately came to my mind and heart when hearing this dream was Revelation 11:15: “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” This is after all, God’s goal, beginning with America.
Though it may appear that the enemy is having his way in America (and there’s no doubt the enemy is at work establishing his new world order), God is the One shaking her, sifting her, separating the diamonds from the chaff and from the magma rocks. What that shaking is and will produce is this: America is no longer a republic. She, as she was, has come to an end. And anyway, according to Benjamin Franklin (as recorded in history), it was only a republic if we could keep it. And we have not kept it.
While God tries us through the shaking that is here and the shaking that is soon to come, the world is definitely being affected and is quivering in our shadow, for one day soon they know they will be tried in the hour of temptation as it says in Revelation 3:10, “which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.” And thus God says, “they are under pressure for now.”
But, God is beginning with America. Why? Because, unlike any other nation in the world, we have been a Christian nation, dedicated to God from our inception in 1620, founded on laws and principles based in the Bible from the Declaration of Independence in 1776, to the ratification of the Constitution in 1788 and onward, and graced by His powerful presence. But, America has forgotten and forsaken God to whom she is indebted for His great grace and mercy for 400 years. Judgment begins at the house of God (1 Peter 4:17; Ezekiel 8-9). And thus, the sifting has begun and will end when God is finished.
Let’s remember that Jesus told His believers time and again to be vigilant and watchful and prayerful, and the Apostle Paul said, “pray without ceasing” (Luke 21:36; Colossians 4:2; 1 Thessalonians 5:17; 1 Peter 4:7). Even so, we must do this even more so as the Day of the Lord draws closer than ever before. Let us not get too busy nor so patriotic that we forget that what is most important is God’s kingdom come, God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Let’s keep a heavenly perspective, our minds on things above, our treasure and home in heaven.
Interestingly enough, diamonds come from igneous rocks known as kimberlite which is also commonly referred to as magma. That’s right! Kimberlite as well as lamproite are what compose magma that diamonds crystallize within the kimberlite under intense pressure and heat and settle in what are referred to as kimberlite/lamporite pipes. However, not all kimberlite rock contains a diamond, only about 1 in 200. “Below-ground mining of kimberlite for diamond also requires moving enormous quantities of rock and other material in order to unearth gems, but on a much larger scale than alluvial mining. For one part diamond uncovered, it is estimated that 15 to 30 million parts waste must be moved out of the way. Unlike mining endeavors for gold or other substances, engineers cannot determine beforehand whether an area has a large abundance of diamond.”
Once kimberlite rocks are unearthed, there are several steps to refining diamonds, namely, crushing, separating and greasing.
“1 Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul! 2 While I live I will praise the Lord; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being. 3 Do not put your trust in princes, Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help. 4 His spirit departs, he returns to his earth; In that very day his plans perish. 5 Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope is in the Lord his God, 6 Who made heaven and earth, The sea, and all that is in them; Who keeps truth forever, 7 Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry. The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners. 8 The Lord opens the eyes of the blind; The Lord raises those who are bowed down; The Lord loves the righteous. 9 The Lord watches over the strangers; He relieves the fatherless and widow; But the way of the wicked He turns upside down. 10 The Lord shall reign forever– Your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the Lord!”
On the eve of the United State’s election, my heart was prompted to read this passage of Scripture. And oh my! How it applies this very day, the day after (and all the days after) this election, specifically verse 3. “We are not to put our trust in princes nor in a son of man.” This means, in short, we are not to put our trust in national leadership nor any type of leadership nor in any human being.
A lot of American Christians are in shock today and are reeling from the election results thus far, for though they have diligently sought the Lord through fasting and prayer, rallies of repentance, tent crusades, and worship protests nationwide—and this is not even to mention the patriotic rallies and patriotic truck parades with flags and banners waving high, all held in a spirit of American idealism and patriotism—it appears that their hopes have not been answered. But for what were they looking? In what was their hope really? What truly was the focus of their prayers? Who would sit on the Supreme Court? Who would be U.S. president? How about the so-called predictions of the prophets that a particular candidate was God’s man?
The psalmist of Psalm 146 asserts, however, that our hope is not EVER, not even ONCE, not even a little, to be in a man, because humans pass away and their dreams and aspirations die with them. These candidates are human. These candidates are mere men. And though most Christians would agree, they still live in verse 3 instead of verse 5 which says, “Happy is he who has the God of Jacob as his help, Whose hope is in the Lord his God.” And no, we cannot mix the two!
Throughout this year God has made the comfort zone of American Christians UNCOMFORTABLE, in order that we might get back into the Bible, seek His face, turn from our evil ways, and remember that this world is not our home. And now God has pulled the carpet of hoping in man and presidents and elections out from under His people.
Let us therefore remember that what Daniel stated in Daniel 2 still applies today and always, “20 Daniel answered and said: “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and might are His. 21 And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding. 22 He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him.”
God removes, and God raises up. God is Creator; God is the Defender of truth; God is the just Judge; God is our Provider; God is our Liberator; God is our Healer; God is our Protector; God is our blessed Relief; God is our Praise!! God is the one who turns “the way of the wicked…upside down”!!! And indeed, that wicked way is about to meet up with the judgment of the living God!!! What is America without God? What is America without His blessing? What is America if they do not repent? And they have not repented. “7 When the wicked spring up like grass, And when all the workers of iniquity flourish, It is that they may be destroyed forever. 8 But You, Lord, are on high forevermore.” (Psalm 92:7-8). Even so, let’s quit trying to fertilize the grass when God is going to destroy it!
But we Christians…..are not to get caught up in all this; we are not to lose hope in God who is still our salvation. Let’s get the right perspective. Let’s get our eyes off of this world and all that is in it! This world is passing away. We are at the end of time, not the beginning, and now more than at any time in history we must get our eyes on Jesus, our SOON and coming King of kings and Lord of lords, who will never be removed from power and whose Kingdom has no end!!!!! Let’s remember during this time of shock and coming darkness, turbulence and tumult that our calling is to pray, not to get political; our calling is to evangelize with the Gospel, not to defend our rights; our calling is to enter the spiritual battle, not be an audience; our calling is live out the Great Commission, not remain in our comfort zone; our calling is to perform the sacred mission of ambassador of a coming, righteous Kingdom, whose King is made of light and is an all consuming fire, who does not tolerate sin, and not to be ambassadors of any other nation; our calling is to praise the King who is seated high on His throne; our allegiance is to be for Him ALONE. He is our ONLY hope. https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2016/07/03/our-only-hope/
