Take the vaccine, my friend! Wear a mask and practice plenty of “social distancing.” It’s simple common sense, given to us by the Creator who expected us to USE that common sense! (Chances are, we could have probably already rid ourselves of this dreaded virus IF we had stopped being selfish and belligerent and following those with ear-tickling conspiracy theories! But no, people just HAD to whine about their rights being taken away because they were expected to stop gathering in groups for a while….)
There is no doubt that, like every other natural disaster, pandemic or disease, etc., COVID was sent by God Himself as a warning to reconcile us back to himself through Teshuvah (Repentance).
Instead of recognizing that fact and trying to keep ourselves protected via common-sense precautionary measures (including masking, sanitizing, hand-washing, social distancing, and yes – taking vaccines designed to help us survive against a deadly VIRUS that basically came out of the blue without any warning, so that we CAN LIVE to have a chance to repent and turn back to Him), we are listening to, and even following the myriad smart-alecks, “armchair experts” and “holier-than-thous” who insist we’re “not trusting God” by doing these things.
If you wish to believe every word that spews forth from the mouths of those self-proclaimed “experts” or conspiracy weirdos, then don’t ever seek out professional medical help or take any pills or shots EVER AGAIN! If you do, then let everyone on social media KNOW, so they can see what a hypocrite you are…
Be that as it may, I personally am convinced COVID and its ever-evolving variants will NEVER go away BECAUSE of the endless rebellion against “the vaccine and mask wearing” by those who believe COVID is a hoax (or at least nothing to worry about)! Matter of fact, I’m thinking that perhaps COVID is one of the things that will help to cause 1/3 of the earth’s population to die off (Ezekiel 5:11-13; Zechariah 13; Revelation 6:8; 8:7-12; 9:15-18).
What people don’t get is that they are TESTING God; not “trusting” Him…
YHWH has warned His people since the beginning of mankind about the consequences of ignoring His Divine Instructions (Torah) – and people, since the very beginning, have WITNESSED those consequences - yet we keep doing the same thing over and over and over ad nauseam. We HAVE access to His Word which tells us exactly how to life healthy, wholesome and safe lives; yet we simply never learn!
Most don’t even realize that we keep reaping what we have been sowing for millennia, and that YHWH is finally unleashing His wrath because we are now in the proverbial “Twelfth Hour” and smack, dab in the middle of the End Times as outlined in the Books of Daniel and Revelation. In other words, HE IS GATHERING HIS PEOPLE, and separating the sheep from the goats! He is laying low the arrogant, loud-mouthed and rebellious!
People - “the government” isn’t trying to kill you, as so many are claiming! ((f anybody is trying to “kill you” it’s Satan – and boy, is he doing a great job!)
God authored this pandemic, and the authorities have shown us ways of protecting ourselves from it – yet most refuse. In other words, they are following the advice of godless humans, instead of recognizing that ELOHIM is DONE allowing mankind to continue ruining themselves and the rest of HIS Creation by ignoring His Divine Instructions.
My suggestion – for what it’s worth, is to do everything in your power to prevent being killed by COVID because you can’t be of any use to God if you’re dead. Nobody is guaranteed the next day, but at least, if you manage to stay ALIVE, you can continue to do something you CAN’T if you’re dead – and that is, to help spread the Word of YHWH/Yeshua/Torah … which, after all, is ALL that really matters. (Please read the powerful words of Zechariah 13.)
In Deuteronomy 31:29 we see this dire warning from a dying Moshe:
“… because I know that after my death you will become very corrupt and turn aside from the way that I have ordered you, and that disaster will come upon you in the acharit-hayamim, (end of days) because you will do what ADONAI sees as evil and provoke him by your deeds.”
We have been doing that, in spades!
Humanity (which has been made in YHWH’s Image – Genesis 1:27) has been given lots of freedom, choices and "rights"; but we seem to have forgotten the “personal responsibility” aspect that underpins those things. WE have the RESPONSIBILITY to help stem the tide of the thing that is literally killing us! WE have the RESPONSIBILITY to STOP rebelling against our God-given ability to reason and use common sense during a crisis.
Instead of LISTENING to, and taking advice from actual experts (doctors, virologists, epidemiologists, etc., and trying our best to weed out the kooks among them), most seem to be attracted to, and even seeking out the nonsense spewed forth by the world’s outcasts and rebels who are suggesting that any attempts by authorities to try to contain the pandemic is “mind-control” or an effort to annihilate the human race - or even a way to implant us with a microchip, which they insist is “the mark of the beast”…
SNAP OUT OF IT! YHWH doesn’t need a man-made thing to be a “mark!”
The bottom line is, people DON'T WANT to obey ANYTHING. Most prefer to be in charge, and to shove their personal opinions down the throats of the entire world!
They keep ignoring the very thing they LOVE to point out, which is, "GOD IS IN CONTROL!" Yes, He sure is – and He never said He's going to save a godless, Torah-less society from a pandemic that HE SENT to teach us a lesson and to open our eyes to the fact that WE ARE NOT IN CONTROL…
What He DOES want (according to the myriad passages we see throughout the Torah) is for HIS people to use their God-given brains by living according to HIS Divine Instructions which were designed to keep us HOLY so that we AND the land would NOT become defiled through SIN! (Our Torah-less ways continue to RUIN His Creation! We've ruined not only the earth and its atmosphere, but now we're busy sending junk into Outer Space! Mankind has been VERY destructive!)
Suffice it to say, NOBODY has a "right" to be irresponsible during a worldwide pandemic sent by God, that is designed to awaken us from our slumber. Refusing to cooperate with the common-sense safety precautions is "testing God" … and guess who wins whenever we do that....
