VACCINES AND TRACING

The focus is shifting rapidly from Covid-19 to all the vaccines that are now ready to be distributed, and are indeed already being administered.

There are many people who don’t want to be vaxxed for one reason or another, me included. A number of countries, including NZ, say they won’t make vaccinations compulsory. The Danish government has just abandoned a forced vaccination law following nine days of public protests. We are now beginning to seeing the problems people may face if they are not vaxxed, even if governments do not make vaccination compulsory.

Britain has announced that passports will soon include vaccine stamps which will show that they have been vaxxed for Covid-19. Some airlines like Qantas (Australia), Korean Air and New Zealand Air have indicated strong support for the plan. With all the short-haul travel in Europe, some see this plan as unfeasible for Europe. Just get a train instead? You might need to show evidence of a vaccination for that too. And what if businesses, shops, employers, etc. don’t want you in their premises if you are unvaxxed? And children may not be able to attend school. Britain is also considering the implementation of so-called “freedom passes,” which would be given to people who test negative to Covid-19 twice in a week, allowing them to see families and friends throughout the country as long as they can show the appropriate “certificate” on their smartphones.

Pfizer and Moderna are both rushing a vaccine with promises that life will return to “normal” if enough people are persuaded to get vaxxed. Their vaccines use messenger RNA (mRNA) which has never been used in vaccines before and there are serious concerns about it. It intervenes in the person’s genetic material and alters it. It could cause irreversible genetic damage. Nothing is known about the long-term effects. There are lots of unknown and unique risks involved in mRNA vaccines, including local and systemic inflammatory responses that may spur autoimmune conditions, cancer or organ damage. The director of the clinical research unit at Hadassah-University Medical Center in Jerusalem has warned that the data published by Moderna and Pfizer about their coronavirus vaccine candidates is limited. A huge percentage of the world’s population are at risk because of as yet unknown problems.

Some vaccines have been made using aborted foetal material, even though there may be no foetal material in the actual vaccine, raising ethical concerns.

Scientists have been working on ways to track people’s movements so they can be warned if they have been near someone who has been identified with Covid-19. At the same time, new ways of recording whether or not a person has been vaxxed are being developed. There seems no doubt with all the new technology a system will be developed where the information is stored on people themselves instead of relying on bits of paper.

When the Antichrist appears, he could very well take advantage of a system that already exists for his purposes. “He also forced everyone, small and great, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.” (Rev 13:16-17). In Israel, the Health Ministry Director insisted that they wouldn’t force people to be vaccinated, but measures are being planned to “manoeuvre” the population into vaccinating as a way of regaining freedom of movement. One commentator wrote, “Government won’t force you to take the vaccine. Amazon will. Airlines will. Banks will. You won’t be able to buy sell, or trade without the vaccine.”

Geoffrey Grider of Now The End Begins is a strong pretribulationist. He believes that there will be no mark of the beast until after a pretribulation Rapture of the church, so the church won’t have to worry about taking the mark. This is a dangerous teaching and if any of you believe the Rapture takes place before the 70th week of Daniel, I urge you to study your Bible seriously and reconsider what you believe. John MacArthur also has the dangerous teaching that you can take the mark of the beast and still be saved.

JUST AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH AND LOT – Luke 17:26-29

One of the most blatant signs of the end of this age that Jesus warned about is the sexual revolution. Recently the Waikato Times had a whole page with the heading: ‘Every boy should know about it.’ It talks about how periods can be difficult for trans boys and it is made far worse by the pain of endometriosis. It reminds them that their chosen gender doesn’t line up with female body functions of their biological sex, and they don’t like that, they hate it. It talks about all the problems trans boys have because they are trying to be boys where the language and surrounding gynaecological care and spaces are geared towards biological women. It is truly tragic watching these things develop.

In Australia, everything is just as crazy. A magistrate has ordered that a gender-confused teenage girl, aged 15, be removed from her home after the magistrate called the parents’ refusal to allow her to ‘transition’ into a boy “abusive.” Many say that they can’t believe this is happening in Australia. But it is happening elsewhere too. Often the father is against and the mother for the transition, causing considerable stress for all concerned. 

Divisions among Anglicans over the LGBT issue are growing. An open letter by the liberal group Changing Attitude England signed by 34 LGBT leaders and supporters inside the Church of England, including 6 archbishops, threatened to leave the Anglican Church dialogue process unless a public declaration in support of “full equality of LGBTIQ+ people in ministry and relationship in the Church of England” was made. Jayne Ozanne, a prominent gay campaigner who is a member of the Church of England’s General Synod, accused evangelical Christians of holding to views that are “wrong, harmful, dangerous and must be stopped.”

More Christians are being fired from their jobs for supporting a biblical stance on sexual morality. In one case a Christian actress lost her job in a theatre production because in 2014 she wrote a Facebook post saying she did “not believe homosexuality is right” and people were “not born gay.” In another case a former US Air Force chaplain believes the only reason for his dismissal from the military was his sermon on Biblical sexual ethics in which he included scriptures about sexual immorality.  Gay activists want to silence all dissenting voices.

Other notable recent cases involve the Kroger grocery store in Conway, Arkansas firing two employees who refused to wear a rainbow-coloured heart emblem on their work apron.  Likewise a Christian woman in New Jersey who has been a barista for five years with Starbucks was fired after refusing to wear a pro-LGBTQ t-shirt. In Poland, the world’s largest furniture retailer, IKEA, fired a worker who refused to participate in a pro-LGBT event and posted Bible verses about homosexuality on a social media account.  Felix Ngole was dismissed as a student from Sheffield University in the UK for posting comments on social media critical of homosexuality demonstrating that students who speak out are also at risk of losing their career even before it starts.

Norway’s government has now barred its citizens from speaking against transgender people even in their own homes.

OTHER NEWS

Physicians in the Netherlands are now authorised to sedate dementia patients – without prior approval – before euthanizing them if it is conceivable that they will become “agitated or aggressive” while the doctor gears up to end their life.

Belgian authorities are now investigating approximately 10 allegedly illegal euthanasia-related deaths in Leuven, a city east of Brussels. Along with its neighbour The Netherlands, Belgium has in recent years seen some of the most controversial cases related to euthanasia and doctor-assisted suicide. Belgian euthanasia practices have now expanded to include children.

Fewer than half of households with kids in the US are “very confident” they can afford food over the next four weeks while 5.6 million households with children reported struggling to afford food in the last seven days.

San Francisco officials have banned all tobacco smoking inside apartments, due to concerns about second-hand smoke, but cannabis smoke will be permitted.

Christmas is upon us again. I see around me and hear everywhere traditions and carols that have absolutely nothing to do with the birth of Jesus. Remember, Jesus was not born in a wintery December in Israel but most likely around September. Also, we are never instructed to celebrate the birth of Jesus. At the first coming of Jesus, the religious people of the day were looking for someone who would save them from the Romans, not a personal saviour. Today most Christians, despite having much more light, still do not understand prophesy and what is coming. 

Most of the church goes in circles between Easter and Christmas, both full of pagan traditions, without ever paying much attention to prophecy and especially the second advent of Jesus. The signs that we are fast approaching the end of this age are all around us. Darkness is descending rapidly. The King of the Jews is returning soon and believers need to be prepared and ready for all that is coming.

But all seems to be well. PM Jacinda Ardern has cleared Santa to enter Aotearoa New Zealand without quarantine. “After much consideration, the Ministry of Health has determined the North Pole is clear of Covid, as far as we know.”

But yes, the King is returning soon and the angel Gabriel’s prophecy to Mary the mother of Jesus will be fulfilled. “He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David, and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, His kingdom will never end.” (Luke 1:32-33)

Christmas is a great time for families to get together, but our focus should not be on Christmas activities; rather we should be alert and self-controlled. Jesus warns about deception four times in Matthew 24. Ask God to give you wisdom and pray that you won’t be deceived. Challenging times are coming rapidly before the end of this age and don’t expect 2021 to be better than 2020.

The UN warns of a humanitarian crisis as 270 million people may starve. There is unemployment and economic turmoil. Covid-19 assistance will start running out for many next year. People are fearful, and the lock-downs have created huge mental stress. Disasters of one kind or another have added to the turmoil.

The global elites have a plan for your future if they get their way. The World Economic Forum tells us that we’ll own nothing and “be happy about it.” Energy will be green, rationed, and expensive, and travel will be restricted. Your diet will be controlled, and currency will be digital. This is called the Great Reset and is supported by Pope Francis and Joe Biden. Their mantra is “build back better.”

   “Why, O Lord, do you stand far off? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble? In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak, who are caught in the schemes he devises… Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God. Do not forget the helpless… The Lord is King for ever and ever.” (Psalm 10)
