READY FOR A MANDATORY NATIONAL VACCINE?
They knock on your door. You're met by four people: a man in a suit, a nurse in her smocks, and two armed police. You are hereby informed that by government order they're here to give you the vaccine. And since “we all want to stop this disease from killing more, then we know we can count on you to take the vaccine, answer a few questions, and we'll be on our way.” They're expecting you to obey. Yes, right now. Remember, they'd sent you two text messages. But you were busy and forgot to reply.
Well, it's so easy! And certainly reasonable. After all, this thing is still
killing people, right? And if you're vaccinated then you won't be spreading
it to others. Or getting horribly sick for weeks like you've heard about with
some people. Or even dying. Isn't it the government's job to protect its
citizens? Don't we pay our taxes for them to do this? And you've already
had many vaccines in childhood and survived just fine. So what's one
more? And by the way, mandatory vaccines ARE legal, according to the
Jacobson vs. Massachussets Supreme Court decision of 1905. So it's all
Many Americans will readily take the vaccine. Hey, life has been good, and we'll get back to normal soon.
But … a small group of Americans see a mandatory national – or worldwide-- vaccine as part of something bigger. Of all things, they see this part of something else, and evil, and which may come soon. They claim it's in the Bible. Really? Where? It's in that last book of the Bible, called Revelation. Yeah, the one that's scary, just weird, and what your friends discussed over beer late one night.
So we read in Revelation chapter 13:11-18 about some powerful dude called the beast: “11: Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke as a dragon. 12: He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, who fatal wound was healed 13: He performs great signs (miracles), so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men.
14: And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was tiven him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life. 15: And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16: And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17: and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.
18: Here is wisdom: Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundered and sixty-six.
The Bible goes on in different places to talk about a worldwide dictator demanding to be worshipped as God. This is the beast, who along with a false prophet deceiving many and the devil himself, will finally be thrown into hell as we see in Rev. 20:10. But before that happens there will be just unbelievable, horrible worldwide judgments called the Great Tribulation. So some Christians say this vaccine paves the way for the anti-christ to establish his dictatorship. That's why they refuse to take it. They say that would lead to worshipping God and the devil at the same time and they can't do that.
Now you can take the vaccine. Hey, it'll take just a few minutes. And you go on your way. But if you believe there's really something to what the Bible is saying and that you can't do it, remember there will be a cost. Would it be worth it? True Christians will say yes, because those who take the mark of the beast won't go to heaven but hell. And hell is forever. And again, they see a mandatory vaccine as preparing us to accept – and worship- a worldwide dictator claiming to be God himself. Taking just a mandatory vaccine by itself doesn't send you to hell. But again, it prepares you to later accept the mark of the beast and THAT WILL send you to hell. And the mark is coming! So who do you identify with? Who do you belong to no matter what? Who do you trust with absolutely everything? If you've been born again in Jesus then you're still bound for heaven no matter what disasters you have to go through. That's what the gospel is all about. The key is being born again.
