The words of Jesus… Matthew 16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it… seem to be played out more than once in a person’s life.

One experience is to accept or reject Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of our life… followed by the experiences of self-denial or self-exultation throughout our lives… ending with Life or Death when we draw our last breath-of-life.

The examples get replayed to a final resolve as we live.

Even each week that passes testifies to this. 

The first 6 days represent the fallen flesh and spirit of man that’s cursed and sentenced to God’s wrath (the sweat of the brow from our labor that produces thorns and thistles from the dirt… death)…

The 7th day, the Sabbath, represents God’s rest from His anger and wrath towards us made available to us through Jesus Christ’s atonement death at the Cross.  Man can cease from his own labors (self-righteousness) to attain Jesus Christ’s righteousness (right standing) before God.  This 7th day also represents the 7th 1000 year period of history… the Millennial-rule of Christ Jesus on the throne of David leading Israel in peace…

Jesus Christ didn’t stay in the grave—the 8th day, the first day of a new week, Sunday, represents His resurrection to Life.  We can receive His Life, the Holy Spirit, and have our sins forgiven if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior (our Sabbath rest) and remain His follower (continue in His rest).  This 1st (8th) day also represents the new-age-to-come… where His saints of this age are resurrected to glory, starting when He returns for His Millennial-rule.  Then, there’s Eternity after that… the New Heavens and a New Earth with the New Jerusalem where God will dwell with us.  (For further discussion, see the essay Counting Up at the Writings Page.)

The replayed historical events in God’s creation and our life serve as memorials… reminders… check points… revelations… of what direction we’re headed—to either Life eternal or Death forever.

I write this as I ponder questions I’m trying to answer for myself. 

As male and female created in the image of God, we’re given a mind and conscience to make choices.  This doesn’t mean I have to agree with the decision another individual makes… or would make that decision for myself.  To engage honest discussion about our choices should not be considered taboo and barbaric to be censored.

I think about the implications of “the jab”.  I will not call it a vaccine.  Professionals in this field claim it’s falsely defined as one… it does not classify as a vaccine by medical definition of. 

Do your own research on what I mention.

Medical professionals in the field of disease and their treatments make some claims that the jab can… infiltrate and alter our DNA (a jab manufacturer seems to admit this)… our mind can be subject to alteration, or control, by outside communication via AI technologies… protein prions can be multiplied in our brains stimulating dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, or mad cow disease… along with affecting the circulatory, immune, nervous, and reproduction systems. 

Is our DNA God’s “signature” that we’re… created in His image?  Is it “the deed”… the declaration… from Him that our spirit of man, our souls, and our bodies are His property?  Can He not do what He wants with His property, including redeeming us (Revelation 4:11; Ephesians 1:4-12)?  When He redeems, do not our minds undergo renewal described as… For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace (Romans 8;12:1-3)?

Also, does not our DNA act as sequenced “launch codes” for various functions in our body?

To willingly alter one’s God-given DNA, are they “turning over the keys”, signing over “the deed”, yielding ownership to, the men that control the technology that alters what God has designed and authorized? 

For the genetics of seeds, man has established laws protecting their claim to ownership.  Seed hybrids can be, and are, patented by the seed companies that have developed these genetically modified seeds.  This makes it illegal for farmers to keep back the progeny of these seeds for replanting… as if they’d be any good—to plant the seed produced by hybrids does not improve, but rather destroys, the quality of the next generation progeny.  You start descending into corruption headed for oblivion of the seed line.

(Is there any relation between blood, life, and genetics that affect behavior…or is this “stretching for it”? For further discussion, see the series essay Blood at the Series Page)

There’s claim that there are patents on the mRNA genetic altering technology that’s injected into the body through the jab.  If true, under the definition of established genetic laws, do these patent owners now have a claim of ownership over the person that’s been jabbed?  Does this give them the legal right to interfere with that person’s bodily functions and mind?  If so, legally, the person has no basis for objection to… or defense from… invasion of their body.  Have they given up sovereignty over their own body?

This leads me to think about…

It seems a person can reach a state where they cannot repent… cannot change their mind.

Hebrews 12 16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.17 For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.

Hebrews 6 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

Revelation 14 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb [Revelation 19:19-21]:

To become this, has God’s intention for them as male and female created in His image been corrupted beyond repair… healing… redemption?

If something is suspect to alter my mind causing loss-of-control of it… adjusts “the signature” of my DNA… the “code of operation”… that God has designed in my body… do I want to fool around with it?

Is the jab the actual mark-of-the-beast? 

How is the mark described?  It’s not just a mark… it’s also a name and a number that grants the authority to control the ability to buy/sell… have claim over ownership… identify allegiance to.  One can’t reverse their decision after being “stamped” with it… their fate is sealed with it.  Does this mean created in the image of God… the ability to have control over, or change, one’s mind is taken away?

Revelation 13: 15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

The jab appears to be associated with… genetic modification of the body that corrupts the identity of being a human as created by God… and “passports”, or other tracking/tracing technology, granting “permission” to exist.  Corruption of humans created in the image of God (what sin does) and the right to buy/sell are also tied to the mark-of-the-beast.  Do not mark and the jab accomplish the destruction and murder of people?

[The loss of fear of breaching God’s boundaries is testified to elsewhere… a part human/part monkey embryo (mongrel human identity not created in God’s image) has been developed for harvesting organs.  Again, it’s coupled with the mantra… it’s to keep us safe, saving our life.]

I’m not saying the “jab” is the mark-of-the-beast described in Revelation 13 because the mark appears to be issued after the antichrist, or the beast… his image, is identified and comes to power.  But, is it one of the replays that lead to embracing and accepting the final one, the actual mark?  Did not Jesus Christ and the Apostle John say… many antichrists exist (Matthew 24:5; 1 John 2:18)?   Then, the book of Revelation goes on to describe the final antichrist that will appear.

I started with… the “replays” through life that lead to an ultimate final one.  We’re warned of becoming bound to our habits and actions… either becoming a slave to righteousness or the world… to God or Satan—to have the mind of the Spirit… or the carnal mind of the flesh that’s an enemy of God. 

Is not liberty submissive to morality… and morality submissive to the Holy Spirit… and the Holy Spirit submissive to Jesus Christ… and Jesus Christ submissive to the Father God?  We’re humans created in God’s image who can recognize this and accept it… animals can’t—to deny, we start acting like them destroying male and female created in the image of God

The darkness

My wife and I have a long time friend and brother in Christ who was healed by the Lord… brought back… from Alzheimer’s disease after having it for a few years.  He went from becoming incapacitated, declared so by the medical and legal system, to having his normal cognizance and bodily function restored, also recognized by the same medical and legal system. 

We had dinner with him when he drove out, by himself, to visit family and friends in our area.  He described his experience as… descending into a darkness that the Lord brought him out of.  The darkness was so deep, his wife and a son died during this time and he was unaware of it.  He could not recall the part of his life controlled by the disease and its darkness.

I mention this because… darkness… is a terrifying existence.  By the Grace of God, Jesus Christ, we’re brought out of it… more than once.  I don’t want to return to the final darkness of condemnation and wrath from God… never being able to come out of it.

I have family, friends, and brethren that have taken the jab.  How will I interact with them as time goes on?  I don’t completely know… I’m in uncharted territory.  I’m trying to filter and sort it out through the Word of God.

People that have taken it, thinking they’ve done so out of “love for others”, may actually become carriers of more toxic diseases because their immune systems may have been corrupted and compromised.  I hope my actions will not be out of fear of contracting a physical disease

Early on, with what has proven to be a deception, I looked to the Lord.  If I didn’t and looked primarily to man for my “salvation”, I think I would be more susceptible to reacting out of the current fear/death culture that’s becoming increasingly irrational and rampant. 

This being said…

If minds become altered, through the jab or un-repented willful sin, becoming hostile and toxic to my Christian faith, my relationship to Christ, I think I’m to evaluate these relationships and treat them as such—just like rejecting false teachers and prophets… wolves in sheep’s clothing… those intent on destroying the fellowship of the flock, the Church, by embracing idolatry and lies (Matthew 18:15-17; Titus 3:10-11; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; Ephesians 5:1-14; Matthew 10:32-39).  There’s the question… can this altered mind degrade to no longer receive rebuke, admonishment, encouragement, and love… to become corrupted and hardened (Proverbs 1:7; 13:19-21; 1 Timothy 4:1-3; 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12; Isaiah 66:3-5; Romans 1:17-32; Proverbs 1:25-27)?

Ultimately, will the cold-heartedness displayed by the creators, advocates, and enforcers of the tyrannies follow suit in those that comply with them?

This has caused me to think about… the sin unto death

1 John 5 15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.                       21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

Is John talking about sin that… can’t be repented of?  Is he describing this happening in “one-fell-swoop”… or, does it also include a series of replays to end up in this irrevocable state… like a slow instant.  To become capable of being sealed with the mark-of-the-beast, does it result from a life habitually engaged in sin and idolatry preparing the heart and mind to capitulate?

Does not all sin lead to the finality of Death… unless there’s the interruption of repentance leading to Salvation… and then repentance leading to confession of our sins to Jesus Christ for forgiveness when do “wobble”… mess up—that our hearts do not become hardened like stone (Proverbs 28:14; Hebrews 3:7-19; 4:11-16)?  

Jesus Christ is the High Priest over the House of the God of Israel for the intercession and forgiveness of our sins (past, present, and future).  He reconciles us back to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and then keeps our relationship with Him viable, alive, and growing in Grace and Knowledge of Him.  To turn to Him, wards off complacency (un-repented sin) leading to staleness (habitual sin) headed for the death of separation (falling away).

For those that have taken the jab… it has changed our relationship… in terms of, I feel I can no longer discuss with them the concerns, or potential dangers, over it.  Why?  They’ve already executed their decision… they can’t reverse it—it’s useless attempting to convince them to… in context of possible “fall-out” in the body. 

Said another way… it’s hard to continue to warn someone about “the wolves in the forest”… if they’ve chosen to enter it anyway, unarmed—they now have to contend with the wolves on their own. 

I don’t know how hard it would be to reject future jabs from an attitude of… it was no big deal to take the first one… unless, they’ve experienced some painful “fall-out”.  Will it be too late, then?  Only time and history will tell… the former will reveal how well we’ve listened to the latter.

To knowingly put myself in a compromised position… where the odds of destruction compared to benefits received are not in my favor… is it wise?  A long-time investor for mammon wouldn’t even place that “bet”!  As I heard a microbiologist doctor say… I don’t want a “vaccine” that may kill me to protect against getting a cold… do you? 

The end-of-this-age seems to be getting closer.  I don’t want to be alienated, or separated, from the Lord’s mercy… to descend into darkness.  I don’t want to play with the fire that has the potential to do this… even if ever so slightly.

Proverbs 29 25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.

Proverbs 127 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord:30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

Along with being created in the image of God, comes the responsibility to make our own choices—to be held accountable for them before God.  Humanism… the opinion of a man… is dangerous to rely on as a guide for us to do so.  The Word of God, the Bible, gives us the solid unchanging framework to make wise decisions… as Wisdom in Proverbs declares…

Proverbs 9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. 11 For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.
