Good day beautiful people
I hope you’ve all had an amazing Christmas, and are looking forward to the new year? I pray that this coming new year brings about healing to all hearts that have lost hope, and restoration for those who have lost joy. For some weeks now I’ve noticed a lot of content on social media platforms, suggesting that the corna vaccine is the mark of the beast. And I thought I’d share my views, and beliefs on this matter. And as always I like to encourage my readers to seek the Holy Spirit for wisdom, as it’s important to get to know God FOR YOURSELF. I do understand that we don’t always get things right all the time, but we should strive to seek the truth always, and be open minded to the Holy Spirit. No one knows all things except God.
First and foremost I’d like to highlight that everyone has their own opinion on what good health looks like, and no one person thinks exactly the same, as God created us as unique individuals, and has given us freewill. But balance and having access to the right information, is vital to one being able to live well.
Now as mentioned above, everyone has been uniquely created, therefore people react differently to the SAME drug. For the majority of human beings paracetamol works well, and is safe to ingest, but for some, the drug may cause a deadly/fatal reaction, as is the case with ALL medicines. It is extremely sad when a person passes away from having a severe reaction to medicinal drugs, yet I must also state that humans have greatly benefited from the drugs, and vaccines we now have today. Not all medicines are bad, but I am also aware that there are a lot of fake drugs out there, and sadly some corporations cut corners in order to make money, at the expense of people’s lives.
There is significant danger in individuals telling others, not to seek medicinal treatment when it is needed. I believe that God is the author of wisdom, and He has blessed doctors, pharmacist, opticians, dieticians, and scientists etc with knowledge on how to care for the human body. I remember during my early years working within the healthcare system, witnessing a patient pass away from having a bleed in their brain. It was sad because this patient stopped taking their high blood pressure medicine, which resulted in their demise. An avoidable death.
Seeking medical help is not wrong, it is a blessing to be able to receive healing from medicine, or operative surgery. A companion of Paul named Luke was a physician. He wasn’t asked to leave his occupation. It wasn’t demonic, neither did it show a lack of faith in God.
Colossians 4:14 ~ Luke the beloved physician and Demas greet you.
^^^The fact that Luke was referred to as a ‘beloved physician’, highlights to me that there is absolutely nothing ungodly about being a doctor. There is nothing shameful about practicing medicine. It’s a God given skill!
God is actually the first physician recorded in history. God knew it was necessary to put Adam to sleep in order to perform surgery
Genesis 2:21 ~ So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the LORD God took out one of the man’s ribs and closed up the opening.
Now is the vaccine the mark of the beast? Well no, I don’t believe so. In the book of Revelations, the bible states that the mark will be placed on the right hand, or the forehead, and as far as I’m aware, I’ve not seen any vaccinations being given on a persons forehead, or hand! When the mark of the beast is made available, it will be made very clear to everyone, so they’ll know exactly what they’re getting themselves into. It won’t be debatable/questionable, it will be made clear. Confusion will be laid aside.
Revelations 13:15-17 ~ He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads. And that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Personally it is my view/belief that those who accept Christ prior to His first return, will be taken during the rapture, and will therefore not experience the tribulation (when the mark of the beast will be introduced). During this period of great tribulation, people will still be able to accept Christ, but things will be very tough for them (those without the mark of the beast). But this is a WHOLE other topic in itself!
1 Thessalonians 5:9 ~ For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, (NKJV)
1 Thessalonians 5:10 ~ Christ died for us so that, whether we are dead or alive when he returns, we can live with him forever (NLT).
Finally, if you feel weary about getting the vaccine, and would like to wait till you feel more comfortable before receiving it, that’s ok! If you don’t want it full stop, that’s ok, and if you want to get the jab, that’s fine too! What I do desire for us to do, is to stop spreading incorrect, or medically inaccurate information. Let us strive not to take the word of God out of context. And we should definitely not be twisting scripture in order to promote our own personal agenda.
Covid-19 is a real virus which inhabits our planet, amongst millions of other viruses, and bacteria. It is not a hoax. So please continue to pray and stay safe!
I pray that we all continue to stay safe during this time, and that God will bring comfort to the hearts of those who have lost loved ones to Covid-19. I pray that this pandemic will come to an end, and that many will eventually get immunity, wether it be through the vaccine, or antibodies. May our hearts turn back to our Creator.
2 Chronicles 7:14 ~ “Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.”
