Thank you for the balanced message. I so appreciate your ministry
Nice teaching Joel!
Everything going on is preparing people to take the real mark when the AC is revealed, IMO. The deception and fear of death (propaganda) that the media has unleashed upon the world is only the tip of the ice berg, and will continue all the more-because they see it works. Satan rules the airwaves and this world system, and keeps his children in line with the fear of death, so go figure. 🙁
Yes the virus kills, but the vast majority who get exposed don’t. This is what is left out of the conversation, only the number of dead- which looks far worse because the whole population has not been tested. Test everyone and the death rates would be like the seasonal flu, because that is what it is- just a new strain. This strain is attacking the old and sick, some strains attack young/ children.
The key takeaway for true Christians who will not be deceived is believing the Bible at face value. 2nd Thess. 2, gives us the clear event that will take place that we are to watch for. Tie this with Rev. 13, and Mat 24, and you have a concise teaching on what must take place before the Lord comes back (His Parousia/coming) to rescue all of the true Christians, before He starts to judge the earth dwellers with His day of the Lord judgment.
Only after the AC is revealed over in Israel on the Temple Mount- with deception from the False Prophet to believe the lie, can the mark of the beast commence. Believe this, and you are on the right path. If you don’t believe this now, how can you believe the truth when God sends a strong delusion upon the whole world??? Got to be born again or all this will not make sense. and you will end up taking the mark.
1Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, 2that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 3Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.
Tonight is the last Supermoon of 2020. It shows Jesus praying.
If there’s one good thing about the murder hornets, it’s that they can’t give you the Rona. As for them going to Heaven, well you never know. Maybe they’re all nice vegetarian murder hornets there.
Thanks for your good teachings, including this one. I have a number of Christian friends who have been sucked up into the coronavirus paranoia recently. It seems to consist of fear combined with untruth, and the spirit of gossip thrown in for good measure. Spreading unsubstantiated things about Bill Gates falls into the category of gossip, in my opinion, which we are commanded by the Bible to avoid. For example, one friend said that Bill Gates had a vaccine ready and was participating in the plot to implant the virus in China so he could make money off of it. I guess the friend hasn’t noticed that there is no approved vaccine available yet, although many are working on that. Then, it was widely known, early on, that the virus started in China and was accepted to have originated there but recently Chinese disinformation has been put out that the U.S. military planted it in China. This has been verified by U.S. intelligence and could be expected from a Chinese communist leadership that was going to great lengths to suppress what was happening in the early stages of the virus there. This is the way the fallen world works. So whatever channels they use to disseminate propaganda are doing a good job. Such things always have an associated spirit of untruth, based upon my experience. Since we should have the Spirit of truth in us as believers, we obviously need to be cautious about going with conspiracy theories just because they maybe “feel right.” We battle not with the flesh but with the spirit. We should make sure the Holy Spirit is okay with us passing on the latest thing on the internet and seek God’s wisdom in all things. Even if we don’t have knowledge of everything that we should, God does know all things and can guide us.
Thanks for pointing this issue back to the Bible!
