Honestly, the myriad "Bible experts" who accuse us of not "trusting God" when we see doctors or take vaccines, etc., clearly don't know what the heck they're talking about, or else they would think before opening their mouths! Truly - they're no different from those kooks who attempt to handle poisonous snakes to prove their "faith in God!"
WHY is it wrong to use the brain ADONAI gave us to become doctors and nurses, etc., who are able to save lives? WHY is it wrong to accept help from them, or to take a vaccine that serves to put an end to some horrific, crippling or deadly disease?
I guess - according to all these "Bible experts" - Yeshua didn't have any faith in God, either, because he didn't jump off the "highest point of the temple," while satan was trying to "tempt" him in the desert. Take a look and pay special attention to verse 7:
Matthew 4:5 Then the Adversary took him to the holy city and set him on the highest point of the Temple. 6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “jump! For the Tanakh says, ‘He will order his angels to be responsible for you...They will support you with their hands, so that you will not hurt your feet on the stones.’” 7 Yeshua replied to him, “But it also says, ‘Do not put Adonai your God to the test.’” (CJB)
The sad thing about many of the comments of these loudmouthed “experts” speaking of fears about vaccines is that (1) many get their information from discreditable sources; and (2) when a credible source is used, the information provided, while entirely accurate, is not properly understood, and is consequently misused … and so the “expert” (3) spreads fear by their misunderstanding of the technology.
Example: Many claim that COVID vaccines contain fetal cells, just because they"heard" that somewhere. COVID vaccine do NOT contain fetal cells! No fetal cell lines were used to manufacture the vaccines, and no fetal cells are inside the injection you receive.
What credible doctors ARE saying is that the laboratory-generated decedents of fetal cells collected in the last century are used to make varicella (chickenpox), rubella (the “R” in the MMR vaccine), hepatitis A, and one type of rabies vaccine, Zoster (shingles), and Adenovirus Type 4 and Type 7. The COVID vaccines are none of these! COVID vaccines are NOT made from fetal cells!
The truth is that (according to creditable doctors and other experts), though there is some "remnant" of RNA in those vaccines made from fetal fibroblast cells, the vaccines are processed such that no DNA from the fetal cells remain in any meaningful form in the final purified vaccine. In other words, the vaccines do NOT contain fetal cells. Period.
Vaccines also DO NOT alter your DNA. That is nonsense. Vaccines work on the outside of the nucleus of your cells and your DNA is on the inside the nucleus of your cells and is not modified in any way.
Here's a recommendation: Instead of fretting and worrying about the safety of vaccines, consider getting on your knees and thanking God that He provided us with vaccines that can keep us from suffering from deadly diseases we face on this earth!
Dear Those that trust in the valley of the shadow of death,ReplyDelete
I believe what I was taught and I applied scriptures below for you since it seems you only quote scriptures from the Torah. You quoted a bunch of scriptures that applied when there was a Temple and before the Lamb of God. I thought you were of Messianic faith not Judaism or Pharisees. I like to apply the entire book of scriptures to my life, because I believe they’re all God spoken words through the prophets that wrote them, not just the back like like Christianity or just the first 5 books like Judaism. Yes, we live in a world filled with danger and evil, diseases and plagues, but Yahweh will protect us if we live faithfully and trust in Him. Scripture tells us, "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find" and this includes the protection of Yahweh.
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” -Isaiah 41:10
“But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.” -2 Thessalonians 3:3
“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. -Psalm 91:4
“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” -Deuteronomy 31:6
“Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.” -Proverbs 4:6
“Because the poor are plundered and the needy groan, I will now arise,” says the LORD. “I will protect them from those who malign them.” -Psalm 12:5
I could list more but there’s no point if your not humble enough to listen or can’t set aside your pride. Here’s a good scripture reading about pride. “Pride precedes a disaster, and an arrogant attitude precedes a fall”. -Proverbs 16:18
In other words trust in man for their powers, vaccinations funded by Bill Gates. Did you ever research the ingredients in the vaccine that came out in record timing, familiar with Luciferin, that is definitely an ingredient. Maybe instead of just following the media maybe do some research on all the side effects and deaths caused by so many that took your measures. I have personally put my trust in Our Father and not man, there’s also scripture that says do not trust in man, trust in Adonai with all your heart, is there not.
Maybe you should get all three vaccines then for the sake of mankind, if your faith is in men and those that educate themselves by men’s doctrine. May God Bless you and open your eyes to the lies you believe. Amen
(P.S. You’re right Boone, Iowa doesn’t have any significance that’s why I left after a year of college and joined the Navy. Drunkenness and misleading is significant though.)
Mr. John, Thank you for your opinion, misguided as it is.Delete
Our advice would be that you abandon “what you were taught”, begin at Genesis 1:1 and read straight through to Revelation 22:21, take notes, then repeat and repeat, and repeat as necessary. (There seems to be much missing from “what you were taught” and coming to understand YHWH and Yeshua takes time and a willingness to abandon “what you were taught” so please take this advice.) Tip: When you get to the Gospels, make a mental note to remember that the only scripture at that time was the Tanakh, quoted often in what we read as the “New Testament”, yet faith in and obedience to YHWH was the “norm” even in Yeshua’s time, and was taught by him! Still, in Yeshua’s time, the sick went to healers! Yeshua never said to “just trust in YHWH” for all things as you seem to have been “taught”. You quoted Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find” in your apparent goal that we are not to trust vaccines, yet you have not even understood what Yeshua was teaching so how can that be applied to vaccines?
In your study, you are encouraged to go back and read all of Matthew 6 & 7 without quoting a single verse out of context, rather, pay attention to what Yeshua is saying - in its entirety. Matthew 6:33 may become clear. Then when you read the letters of the NT, pay special attention to the 1st chapter or two of each letter. There you find an explanation by the author (usually Paul) about to whom the letter is addressed, and just what the issue is that the author is addressing. This helps enormously in one’s understanding of the letters and you won’t be so prone to cite single verses out of context as you did with 2 Thessalonians 3:3.
You wrote, rather arrogantly: “I could list more but there’s no point if your [sic] not humble enough to listen or can’t set aside your pride. Here’s a good scripture reading about pride. ‘Pride precedes a disaster, and an arrogant attitude precedes a fall’ -Proverbs 16:18”. Thank you for the biblical concussion! Well, here’s a good verse for you, Mr. John, if you are willing to cast aside what you think you know:
“The person who thinks he ‘knows’ something doesn't yet know in the way he ought to know.” (1 Corinthians 8:2).
Think about that!
You close with more accusations (that we haven’t done our research, that we trust the media, that we trust in man, blah, blah, blah) but with unintended yet very revealing exposure about who you are. That leads me back to where I began: You need to abandon “what you were taught”, begin with Genesis 1:1 and read through to Revelation 22:21, take notes, then repeat and repeat. (And seek help for verses you don’t understand!) Too bad you left college after only a year! Fortunately, if you give up “the Internet” as your primary source of information, and start delving into scholarly works, the fact that you left your education too soon can be remedied – and that would go a long way in helping you understand Matthew 7:7.
Joseph John - judging by the many comments you have left on a couple of our blogs (each one designed to bash and trash and berate; us and accuse us of being a cult), it's high time for you to find yourself some other website to harass, since you clearly inclined to provoke, harass and harangue.Delete
You obviously view yourself as a Bible scholar, yet you don't know enough to recognize that your endless provocation is not biblical. Therefore, after today, we don't plan to entertain anymore of your caustic comments. Any further attempts to post on our blogs will be denied.
2 Timothy 2: 14 Remind them of these things, and charge them before God 2 not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers.
2 Timothy 2: 23 Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.
Titus 3:9 But avoid stupid controversies, genealogies, quarrels and fights about the Torah; because they are worthless and futile. 10 Warn a divisive person once, then a second time; and after that, have nothing more to do with him. 11 You may be sure that such a person has been perverted and is sinning: he stands self-condemned.
