(Isaiah 29-30; Ephesians 6)
There should be no one reading this commentary who doesn’t see how darkness has risen in this land – indeed, throughout the entire world. Many who are secular apprehend that something is amiss, but they cannot describe it or adequately respond to it. Believers in Christ Jesus, however, have no excuse. If our guidebook is the Word of God – which it is – and if the Lord clearly states what will happen in the last days – which He does – then all who call themselves followers of Jesus Christ should understand what is happening in the world. Do they? I would argue that many don’t.
Probably the most prominent of the deceptions foisted upon mankind of late is the so-called pandemic along with its supposed solution. Although vaccines have never – ever – been effective against a virus, the rushed-to-market drugs labeled as vaccines have been promoted as the panacea to all our ills. If only 70% of the populace of the world would get vaccinated, we could return to normal. Lately, at least in America, I believe that magic number has risen to something like the necessity of vaccinating 90% of the people in order to reach normality once more.
There are many problems with this scenario. First, of course, is the definition of that which afflicts us. Is it a pandemic? Authorities have certainly worked hard to classify it as such. Compared to the Black Plague in the 1400s or the Spanish Flu in 1918, no one had to convince anyone else that these were serious diseases killing people left and right. Given that so many cases of COVID were labeled as such, yet had nothing to do with the disease, i.e. automobile deaths or heart attacks classified as COVID fatalities, one must wonder why there has been such a concerted effort to make every death attributable to COVID.
It is well-documented that prior efforts to create gene altering vaccines have failed spectacularly. Back around 2010, it was thought that researchers had succeeded in this attempt. They used ferrets as test animals, which have a similar drug response as humans. Upon injecting them, it appeared as if the vaccines effectively prevented the disease or lessened the symptoms. Until the ferrets were exposed to a similar virus. The ferrets all died. With that result, it became apparent there were significant flaws in the vaccines.
Now that we have a successor generation of these drugs, thanks to Pfizer, Moderna, J&J, and AstraZeneca (in Europe), plus an astounding number of copycat “vaccines” in development worldwide, we are seeing exactly the same outcomes in human ferrets as resulted in the first go-around with lab animals. The VAERS database used for reporting vaccine injury, which is massively underused by doctors, shows to date in the neighborhood of 17,000 deaths attributable to these shots. It is quite likely this number could be 100 times greater because of the difficulties in using the system and ignorance that it even exists. I believe the number of ferrets which died causing the research to end at that time was about 53 of the test animals.
Another question that has been raised is whether a virus – per se – is the real culprit in all this pandemic response. Certainly there is viral material, but this man-made, engineered bioweapon known as COVID has many more unknown components that are certainly contributing to the disease and its mutations. Even worse, if that’s possible (which it is), is the nature of the so-called vaccines. The true ingredients have been cleverly hidden by the pharmaceutical manufacturers – all of them! – and it is only through the diligence of certain doctors and researchers that we know some of what we do. Among the ingredients discovered in these shots are graphene oxide, nanobots delivered through a compound called hydrogel, and possibly even microscopic worm-like organisms. Given that the dream of certain people over the years has been to develop drugs which can be universally delivered in order to control people for devious purposes, none of this should surprise us. This is a quote from a French doctor, Pierre Gilbert, in 1995(!) discussing this intent:
“In the biological destruction there are the organized tempests on the magnetic fields. What will follow is a contamination of the bloodstreams of mankind, creating intentional infections. This will be enforced via laws that will make vaccination mandatory. And these vaccines will make possible to control people. The vaccines will have liquid crystals that will become hosted in the brain cells, which will become micro-receivers of electromagnetic fields where waves of very low frequencies will be sent. And through these low frequency waves people will be unable to think, you’ll be turned into a zombie. Don’t think of this as a hypothesis. This has been done. Think of Rwanda”
Source (h/t to Pastor JD Farag in his Prophecy Update of October 3, 2021):
This brings us to the point of this essay. Paul in Ephesians 6:11 urges us to:
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.
All that is happening around us is a result of Satan’s diabolic schemes. From the very beginning of Bible history, the serpent has attempted to undermine God and destroy all that He made good. When the Lord cursed him and declared that the Seed of the woman, i.e. Jesus Christ, would be his demise (Genesis 3:15), he knew he had to do all in his power to destroy mankind. If man was genetically altered so that he was no longer human, then either the Seed could not come forth, or there would be no one with a human genetic makeup that could be redeemed.
Through the ages we’ve seen Satan’s various attempts to realize this demonic dream. Now that we’re in the very last days, the evil behind the COVID and vaccine narratives should be evident. Yet, believe it or not, there are even noted Bible prophecy teachers who deny this reality and call it a conspiracy theory along with the rest of the world. If those who have amazing insight into all other aspects of Bible prophecy challenge that Satan’s efforts are behind this global phenomenon, is it any wonder that so many church goers – good solid Christians among them – are ignorant of the devil’s schemes?
The whole armor of God that Paul advocates we put on should inoculate true believers from the lies of the world. For the most part it does, but not always. We are in a life and death struggle against the powers of darkness. How do we win? Only through the Word of God and the blood of Jesus Christ. This battle is not ours, although we are to stand boldly for the Lord while He fights for us.
It won’t be long before Jesus snatches us away from this alien place. In the meantime, we must bring the truth to unbelievers and believers alike. We’re in a spiritual battlezone. We need to ask God for wisdom, discernment, and truth. He will give us these qualities in abundance. For that, we should give Him all praise and glory, because He is the victor in this war. We who are on His side, can exult in His goodness and glorify Him until He brings us home.
[Author Note: Briefly, I want to set the stage for you as to the nature of most of my articles in this season. Each year I read the Bible through completely at least once – that has been my practice since I came to the Lord in 2005. I remain astounded at what God has done in my life because of that discipline! Each day I read from both the Old and New Testaments. I choose a verse from one of those passages and write my commentary and reflection based on that. In the title of my article, you’ll see the verse I chose. In addition, you’ll see the reading for that day if you’d like to follow along with greater context.]

These books are contained in the collected volume of the Whirlwind Omnibus. Gary has been given the Christian Redemptive Fiction award for three novels: The Tattooed Cat, Alien Revelation, and for his collaboration with Terry James in writing The Minion Protocols, the third book in James’ Second Coming Chronicles. Earlier this year Gary released a four-volume set of Awaken Bible Study Notes that comment verse-by-verse through Scripture from a Biblical prophetic lens. He is currently editing a sequel to Alien Revelation called Alien Zombie Plague, which he plans to release later in the fall of 2021. Recently, Gary wrote a novella for the new Kindle Vella platform. That story is called Tribulation Rising: Seal Judgments – The Coming Apocalypse. This seven-part short work can be found at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B099Z462WD. Each day this year Gary has been writing commentary and reflections based on his reading through the Bible in a year. The intent in all his writings is to bring a strong Christian witness to what people read.
