There is an elephant in the room and the church is refusing to talk about it. However, if we do not address it soon, the church will become increasingly irrelevant because we are failing to talk about what really matters. Of course, most of us would like to go back to pretending that things will return to normal, but this is unlikely to be the case because, whether we like it or not, there is a hard decision that is coming. A fork in the road that may forever change our fate and our destiny. This decision is about whether to take the Covid vaccine or not.
Unfortunately, our entire society has been held hostage for almost a year due to the COVID-19 narrative. Now we are being told that things cannot go back to normal unless we are all vaccinated. Yet, the COVID-19 narrative and agenda are false with respect to being different than the flu and associated pneumonia. This deception is exactly what we covered in our two-part article entitled, “Only COVID-19 Lives Matter.” To fully understand the deception, we cannot compare COVID-19 to only the flu or pneumonia. That is because the flu and pneumonia are inseparable. Consequently, they are the perfect candidates for comparison. In fact, even the CDC no longer differentiates between COVID-19, influenza, and pneumonia.
Since our last article, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (US-CDC), the World Health Organization, and global health partners have increased the number of annual deaths associated due to respiratory diseases such as seasonal influenza/flu up to 650,000. This marks an increase on the previous global estimate of 250 000 – 500 000, which dates from over ten years ago and covered all influenza-related deaths, including cardiovascular disease or diabetes. The new figures of 290 000 – 650 000 deaths are based on more recent data from a larger, more diverse group of countries, including lower-middle-income countries, and exclude deaths from non-respiratory diseases
When we combine these new figures with the deaths from pneumonia in years like the 2017-2018 flu season, which was 2.54 million, the total death count from the flu and pneumonia is approximately 3.1 million people. In comparison to COVID-19 (as of February 2nd, 2021) worldometers.info says 2.3 million people have died of Covid-19. Not only did the flu and pneumonia kill more people, but it also happened in a significantly shorter period of time. After all, Covid has been around now for over a year, while the flu season usually lasts 6-8 months. Ironically, in the 2017-2018 flu season, we never shut down the world, gave 24/7 TV coverage, wore masks, or did anything significantly different.

The final nail in the coffin for the fallacy of the Covid narrative came when John’s Hopkins critically analyzed the effect of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths using data from the CDC. “Surprisingly, the deaths of older people stayed the same before and after COVID-19. Since COVID-19 mainly affects the elderly, experts expected an increase in the percentage of deaths in older age groups… In fact, the percentages of deaths among all age groups remain relatively the same.”
We have been hearing for quite some time that the 2020 death rate remained the same when compared to the previous year. However, now that the death rate of the “at-risk group” has remained the same, we can definitively say that there was no pandemic. Is Covid-19 real? Yes, but is it statistically different than the flu and pneumonia. No, it isn’t. Now let that sink in.
Not only are the COVID-19 deaths not statistically different than other flu/pneumonia seasons, but the tests for COVID-19 are also inaccurate. For example, the RT-PCR test being used for Covid-19 is non-specific and cannot differentiate between an active and an inactive virus. The RT-PCR test is also unable to tell between other RNA viruses such as the flu. More on this later.
Interestingly, the WHO or World Health Organization (AKA – The privately-owned for-profit company controlled by Bill Gates) changed the guidelines on COVID-19 testing one hour after President Biden was elected. Now they require two positive tests and a clinical diagnosis. What does this admit about the accuracy of the test? What will having two positive tests correlated with an actual clinical exam do to the total number of COVID-19 infections? I believe that with these changes COVID-19 could literally go away.

Now, let’s ask ourselves some serious questions. If the COVID-19 test is flawed and shows false positives for many of the other Covid’s, then how do we know how many people actually have it? If health insurance companies gave significantly more money for a COVID-19 diagnosis and hospitals retooled their entire billing department to take advantage of COVID-19 money, then what do you think that did to the over-all COVID-19 numbers. Even the CDC director admitted that the COVID-19 numbers were increased because of financial incentives. (See the last article)
All of this has led me to the inextricable conclusion that the COVID-19 narrative is completely false (to the point of being manufactured) with respect to being statistically different than the flu and pneumonia. Now the question is who is in on it. If Joe Biden, Donald Trump, every conservative, every liberal, every TV station, every news source, every internet company, every health insurance company, every hospital, and every internet search engine is complicit with the Covid narrative, then what are we up against? Are you starting to get the picture? My only conclusion, in times like these, the Bible is our only source of absolute truth!
Still, it is the COVID-19 narrative that overturned an incumbent president, forcible closed our churches and schools, allowed for mail-in ballots, added 7 trillion-plus to the national debt, divided our people, and destroyed the greatest economy the USA had ever seen. Most importantly, COVID-19 has significantly damaged the church and the faith of those who were attending. Like it or not, COVID-19 is dividing the church and people are questioning their faith more than ever before.
Furthermore, the COVID-19 narrative has also produced legislation that has destroyed many of our religious freedoms in this country. In unprecedented fashion, churches and even home Bible studies were shut down, and citizens were fined if they attended. Churches in California had to declare themselves temporary “strip clubs” because strip clubs were considered essential and they were not. In Covid times, God and our faith are not essential?
Yet, God did not leave us without a warning to be on guard for a massive deception that is to be played out upon us all in the end times. In fact, the Bible says that a delusion is coming that is so powerful and so persuasive, that if it was possible, it would deceive the very elect of God’s children.
• The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the working of Satan, with every kind of power, sign, and false wonder, and with every wicked deception directed against those who are perishing, because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them. For this reason, God will send them a powerful delusion so that they believe the lie, in order that judgment may come upon all who have disbelieved the truth and delighted in wickedness. (2 Thessalonians 2:9-11, but read the whole chapter.)
• For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. Matthew 24:24
The COVID-19 narrative has put churches and ministers in a difficult place because of the political pressure associated with defying the COVID-19 agendas. It has divided the church in many ways. Unfortunately, some people are true believers in the COVID-19 narrative. Unfortunately, we can’t even talk to some people about this without triggering some kind of overreaction. Still, many people have walked out of the church and they may never come back.
The disinformation warfare surrounding the Covid narrative has created a fear of bringing up what is boiling under the surface for all of us. I pray for our ministers who are trying to speak the truth in love, while still trying to be the peacemakers. Big churches are especially at risk because most people are still worried about gathering in big groups.
My admonition for those of you who are called to be a pastor or in ministry is to tell you that you were born for a time like this. More importantly, you are called to fight for the minds and hearts of God’s children, and this means we can’t remain neutral any longer. The wolf is leading the sheep astray as we speak.
The COVID-19 Agenda
Like any deception, the COVID-19 agenda has predictably followed the rules of performing magic. A magician always distracts us with his one hand, when he is doing all the real work of deception with the other hand. The fact that everyone is in on the Covid narrative tells us that Covid-19 (not all of the other political and social issues most of us are ranting about) is what is accomplishing Satan’s real agenda. We can no longer be fooled by this good cop and bad cop routine. We must fight what has been dividing and destroying our freedoms since the founding of our country.
America is important in one sense because America is the biggest obstacle to a one-world government that the Bible says is coming. The way to destroy any country is to divide the people and to destroy their financial resources. The financial part of this agenda was laid out by the World Economic Forum in their plan for the Great Reset. Letting no crisis go to waste the plan is to reset the world economies for sustainability. This will specifically weaken the economic power of America.
In “Only Covid Lives Matter,” I mentioned two tried and true ways of manipulating whole societies. One is “order out of chaos,” and the other is an application of the Hegelian Dialectic. Each of them involves actively creating a problem that allows for the implementation of their solution to accomplish their true goals, which is control. Unfortunately, fear is Covid’s only prescription, but in Christ, we are told that “perfect love casts out fear.” This is important because we have officially entered a time when other “men’s hearts are failing them for fear.” (1 John 4:18 & Luke 21:26) Now is the time to let the world know the hope that still lies within us.
Disinformation & Desensitization
Since the advent of COVID-19, look at how people have been dehumanized and desensitized just by becoming masked entities instead of people full of joy and wearing contagious smiles. The Covid narrative is purposely trying to destroy our personal social network and familial ties to isolate us leaving us with nothing but our TV set. With Covid, we cannot afford to get too close to anyone. Suddenly, everyone needs their personal space and people will let you know it. We are told to have a virtual Thanksgiving and give virtual high-fives. Do not meet in person, and do not go on vacation. This is all intentional. Every day is an all-out assault on our sensibilities and on our reason.
This is why the practice of disinformation, or the art of telling lies, remains the number one way to disrupt and control entire societies. Remember, Satan is the father of lies. Now, these lies are being played out on us right here at home. For example, CNN has a Covid score sheet on its main screen much of the time. We are simply not allowed to stop thinking about Covid 24/7. We are still forced to wear masks, even though they do not work. Whether we like it or not, we are being forced to capitulate with the narrative.
Surprisingly, a simple thing like a mask is dividing us as we speak. Why? Because people do not know who to believe. They trust what is on TV more than they trust 55,000 doctors or the CDC. For some, the panic is palpable. People are living with so much fear that they feel like they must do something even though it does not work. I can show someone the research revealing that the mask they are wearing is only able to filter something 800 times bigger than this virus, but they usually just clutch it more tightly or they just get mad.
• Previously referenced in “Only Covid Lives Matter,” based on an article by the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons.
Shockingly, there are no face masks on the market that can filter something this small. Then, in mind-numbing dribble, Dr. Fauci comes out and tells us to wear three of them, and then only to change his mind within a week. To date, there is no peer-reviewed research that supports the effectiveness of wearing a mask to prevent COVID-19, and yet, we are forced to capitulate with the lies. How rude or ignorant we are made to feel if we dare question such things.
But questioning the mask mandate reveals the opposite. Masks are not effective in reducing the contamination of influenza. The following is a quote from the article listed below found in the British Medical Journal.
• “A systematic review published on 6 April 2020 examined whether wearing a face mask or other barrier (goggles, shield, veil) prevents transmission of respiratory illness such as coronavirus, rhinovirus, tuberculosis, or influenza. It identified 31 eligible studies, including 12 randomized controlled trials. The authors found that overall, mask-wearing both in general and by infected members within households seemed to produce small but statistically non-significant reductions in infection rates. The authors concluded that “The evidence is not sufficiently strong to support the widespread use of facemasks as a protective measure against covid-19…”
In the same article, they also reviewed non-pharmaceutical measures for the prevention of influenza. They identified 10 randomized controlled trials published between 1946 and 2018 that tested the efficacy of face masks for preventing laboratory-confirmed influenza. This “pooled meta-analysis found no significant reduction in influenza transmission. They also identified seven studies conducted in households: four provided masks for all household members, one for the sick member-only, and two for household contacts only. None showed a significant reduction in laboratory-confirmed influenza in the face mask arm.”
While the article was still recommending caution, the authors of the research they were referencing concluded: “randomized controlled trials of [face masks] did not support a substantial effect on the transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.” It is research like this that was used by the Canadian nurses’ union to win their dispute with the hospitals that were requiring them to both vaccinate and wear masks. This is also why virtually no one was recommending the use of masks when Covid first started. Precedent had already been set. Masks don’t work.
The Covid-19 PCR Test
The Covid test itself is also part of the disinformation warfare that they are using. This is how they have changed the narrative from the number of deaths to the number of cases. There was suspicion back in May of 2020 that the CDC numbers regarding the number of persons dying from COVID-19 were skewed for financial reasons. (see the last article) Since the beginning of the Pandemic hospitals were instructed to count all deaths suspected of Covid-19 whether they had tested positive or not.
In fact, hospitals were given financial incentives for the diagnosis of Covid-19 patients (approximately $13,000 per diagnosis), and, if the patient had to be intubated, there was a $40,000 per patient payment. Most of these patients were diagnosed via the symptoms they presented with and some were diagnosed utilizing the Reverse Transcriptase Polymerase Chain reaction test or RT-PCR. This test was developed by Kary Mullis back in 1983 while working at Cetus Corporation. The test effectively takes a small part of DNA and amplifies it through thermal cycles for identification. This amplification is fundamental in genetic testing for both biomedical research and criminal forensics.
However, most experts state the cycling should not exceed 30 cycles otherwise false identification can occur. How does this apply to COVID-19, more specially SARs CV-2 testing? Since the virus is an RNA virus, they were cycling upwards of 35-40 cycles effectively giving a 70%-90% false-positive identification. Too many cycles make the testing procedure ineffective. The other problem with the test is it cannot differentiate between a live virus and an attenuated (non-infectious) virus. This is how they have effectively INCREASED the CASE NUMBERS to drive the Pandemic narrative.
Yet, knowing the truth always sets us free. Truth is the only way to see through the stream of disinformation, the veil of chaos, and the mask mandates. Truth exposes the larger COVID-19 agenda, which is to divide and destroy America the same way the Russians divided their country between the haves and the have not’s. Racial division and financial ruin are also a major part of this agenda. Yet, I have now come to believe that there is an even greater agenda that has finally been revealed. Enter the Covid vaccine, which will soon be mandatory!
The Covid Vaccine
While I am constantly asked if I am taking the vaccine, most of us have never heard any kind of actual discussion about it. That is because the magician has been distracting us with all of the other drama going on in our society with his off-hand. Vaccines also have a staunch history in this country and most of us are accustomed to their mandatory nature. However, the first question any of us should ask ourselves is if we are at risk of dying from Covid. If you are not aware of your risk level, we covered some of the co-morbidities or pre-existing conditions that make us at risk in “Only Covid Lives Matter.”
For most of us, if we have no risk of dying, then why would we be worried about getting sick for a few days. Besides, many epidemiologists and doctors regard these kinds of common illnesses as essential to the development of a healthy immune system. Do not believe it! Check out the “The Great Barrington Declaration,” these are the 55,000 doctors and scientists that I previously referred to that are recommending that we open our society back up. This includes letting the people who are not at risk catch COVID-19 because we will obtain herd immunity in a shorter period of time.
This approach will allow Covid to pass through our society much quicker. Plus, we will not have to protect the at-risk population for as long. In the end, fewer people will end up dying this way. Again, 55,000 of the world’s most educated people are providing a completely different narrative than what is being propagated by the news media and our government. Instead, Dr. Fauci has been their man and he has never used one peer-reviewed article for any of his opinions.
Here are some other facts to consider about taking the Covid vaccine. First, this is an experimental vaccine. It has not even been approved by the FDA for regular usage, because it does not meet the FDA’s rigorous scientific standards. Furthermore, the description of the vaccine says that it is for “emergency use.” This actually happened through an executive order. The emergency designation only happens when testing facilities allow shots to be given to certain people while studies of safety and effectiveness are still ongoing. In other words, safety and effectiveness are still up in the air – i.e., experimental.
• FDA does not approve Covid vaccine – https://www.fda.gov/emergency-preparedness-and-response/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19/covid-19-vaccines
Furthermore, the vaccine does not protect you from catching Covid nor does it prevent you from spreading Covid. According to the research trials, the vaccine only is effective in reducing the symptoms of Covid if you are infected. That is why they are stating that even if you are vaccinated you will still need to continue to wear a mask and social distance.
Fetal tissue is also a big issue when it comes to vaccines. Yet, most people are surprised that vaccines typically have any fetal tissue in them at all. Obviously, this is a huge issue for us as Christians and one we need to continue to take before the court of public opinion. One of the reasons I believe we should do this is not just that it is the only moral path forward, but because most people are clearly sympathetic to the plight of the unborn child.
• CDC admits that vaccines have fetal tissue: https://www.cga.ct.gov/2020/phdata/tmy/2020HB-05044-R000219-Wrinn%2015,%20Chris-TMY.PDF
Unfortunately, some articles will deny the use of fetal tissue in vaccines. The worst one I found asks the question and then tells us that it is a big no. Then the next line admits that vaccines use fetal tissue that is 60 years old. Now, how is 60-year-old fetal tissue not still fetal tissue? They also go on to say that this fetal tissue was legally and electively aborted in the early 1960s. Do you see the denial? This is why one of the greatest strategies for us as Christians to break the deception is to continue to represent the interest of “all lives.” “For God so loved the whole world…” Plain and simple.
While I do not want to get sidetracked on abortion, I do want to give enough pause to list why I believe this is a crucial issue. First, child sacrifice was clearly a part of the worship of false pagan gods. When Stevie Nicks, not to single her out, tells us that if she hadn’t had her abortions, then we wouldn’t have had Fleetwood Mac. What that tells me is that Stevie worships the false gods of money, fame, and career. They are more important than children, and this is exactly how we have parented our generation.
Second, we have politicians who are throwing parties and lighting up buildings in NY city to celebrate the ability to kill an infant the day before their due date. This is one of the most horrifying things I can imagine. They also support partial-birth abortions, which are the most barbaric thing still done on the planet. I don’t know anyone who could actually sit through watching the procedure, let alone perform one. There really are monsters among us. All of this makes me believe that a crystal-clear line has been crossed and consciousness about such evil has been permanently seared.
At the very least, a new holocaust is taking place on our watch. Now they want to make abortion part of national health care to make us all accomplices. The question now becomes how can God not judge us for it. Furthermore, according to the CDC, there were 619,591 abortions in the United States in 2018, that is 11,915 abortions per week! How can anyone claim to care about 2000-3000 people dying per week from Covid when nearly 5 times as many lives are being taken through abortions? Have they suddenly become pro-life or is it that only certain lives matter? Could it be that their political agenda is designed to relieve us of our liberties?
The next question is why is it a problem to inject fetal tissue into our bodies? Hang with me for a second. The Passover is one of the most important festivals in the Bible because it was part of the Old Testament plan of salvation. Part of the Passover involved killing a lamb and applying its blood to the doorpost of your house so that the angel of death would Passover. Later, when Jesus met John the Baptist, he exclaimed, “behold the Lamb of God.”
Then, at the Passover supper, Jesus takes communion with His disciples. Jesus breaks the bread and passes around the wine and asks them to eat. By doing this, they are symbolically applying the body and the blood of Christ to their lives. So, what is happening when we take actual fetal tissue into our bodies? How are we not participating in some kind of unholy communion? This means that we have literally taken some of these slain infants’ blood and body into our bodies. If the “blood of the Lamb” contains testimony that overcomes all of our accusations, does not the blood of this slain child also carry testimony? (See Revelations 12:11)) So, in some sense, we became an accomplice and a participant in the shedding of this child’s innocent life.
We could also say that we were marked because something was physically applied to our lives. If it is the testimony of the blood of the lamb that we must apply to our lives, then how is this not the opposite. Remember the Catholics believe that when they take communion it literally becomes the blood and body of Jesus Christ. Shockingly, this too is literally the blood and body of a cloned fetus from the 1960s.
How does any of this apply to the Covid vaccine in particular? Back in June of 2020, I was reading about the vaccines, and they were reported as having fetal tissue. However, more recent research is saying the Covid vaccines do not actually contain fetal tissue. Of course, this is a relief. However, while Pfizer and Moderna claim there are no actual fetal cells in the vaccine, they did use fetal tissue in testing the vaccines.
These are called fetal cell lines, and they don’t consider them to be fetal tissue. They consider them to be immortalized cells, which just means they are using cloned fetal tissue. For myself, it is a relief that the vaccine does not have actual fetal tissue inside it. However, they are still using fetal tissue to their benefit, and that is more than enough to say no for many of us.
We will continue this article and post an explosive look at how the Covid Vaccine and the Mark of the Beast are related. It promises to be eye-opening, thought-provoking, and in line with the prophetic warnings of the “End Times.”
The CDC Changed the Rules
Dr. Andrew Kaufman explains how the CDC, after more than 50 years, suddenly changed the rules about how a death certificate was filled out. This happened as soon as Covid was declared a public health crisis. The CDC did this by issuing a guidance change. Specifically, they were told that if there was a suspicion of Covid, then you should put Covid as the cause of death. In other words, all they needed was suspicion to create this whole mess. Suspicion alone would not normally be something that they would use to determine a cause of death.
- “The purpose of this report is to provide guidance to death certifiers on proper cause-of-death certification for cases where confirmed or suspected COVID–19 infection resulted in death.” – https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvss/vsrg/vsrg03-508.pdf
The other major change that was made had to do with giving an immediate Covid diagnosis preference over obvious underlying conditions. This change alone has allowed them to perpetuate the idea that normal healthy people are dying of Covid, but this is not the case. Normally, if someone has cancer as the underlying condition, you do not say they died of an infection, the flu, or cold because normal people do not die of these things even though they are the immediate condition.
- Dr. Andrew Kaufman interview: https://www.bitchute.com/video/FGCjXTR7kUO2/
- The immediate cause of death, which is the disease or condition that directly preceded death and is not necessarily the underlying cause of death (UCOD), should be reported on line a. (Source: same as above)
Heart disease and cancer are the leading causes of death in America for a reason. But taking these changes too far could certainly wipe out cancer and heart disease. Another strange change was that they prevented autopsies of Covid deaths. Now, just in case you were wondering, they did still keep track of comorbidities or underlying conditions. This is why we can still somewhat see what would have happened if they hadn’t changed anything. This old analysis versus the new analysis is why the CDC later admitted that 94% of the people that died of Covid had other comorbidities, which means that only 6% of the deaths were due to only Covid and no other conditions.
Depending on which analysis they used is why we see some of the change in the CDC numbers. In this case, the CDC is being truthful, so that we can see the way it would have been if they hadn’t change the rules. So, why did they change the rules and their analysis just for Covid? The fact remains that if they hadn’t changed the rules about how to fill out a death certificate, then they would have never been able to produce sufficient deaths to declare a pandemic to the public.
Without these changes, we could be looking at something around 30,000 total Covid only deaths. Not something that would have changed the world. The other reason why the numbers for Covid are increased was because of the significant financial incentives offered for a Covid diagnosis compared to other similar conditions or treatments. Again, the CDC director admitted this was also happening. (see our last article, “Only Covid Lives Matter”)
Again, from their counter perspective, they believe the data doesn’t indicate that 94% of deaths were caused by other conditions, but rather, that 94% of people who died from COVID-19 had at least one other health condition when they died. But the truth is they changed the rules and that probably means that Covid caused closer to 6% of deaths than the 100% they are claiming as the real amount.

Why is the church important? The church is where the friends of Jesus meet and grow. It is a hospital for those who admit they are sick and who want to get better. The church is not a building or an organization, it is just people. The church is also part of your spiritual family. Does anyone you know have a perfect family? Good, because that won’t happen in church either. You won’t like all the people there, but you will grow to love many of them. You may have to visit around some to find the right church for you, but if you work at it, you will be better for it. My church friends are one of my greatest sources or encouragement and joy.
