2 Corinthians 3:14 – Their Minds Were Hardened

Gary W. Ritter

(Proverbs 19-20; 2 Corinthians 3)

The nation of Israel had everything going for it.  After all, when God has specially chosen you to be the focus and recipient of the purpose and destiny He has planned for mankind, surely He would pour out incredible mercy and goodness upon you.  That’s certainly the case, but Israel squandered it.

God gave Moses the Ten Commandments to teach the Israelites how to live a holy and righteous life.  But these rules were supposed to be just the beginning.  In reality, their instruction was to be a tutor and cause for the Jewish people to turn to Yahweh with willing minds and softened hearts.  There was a supernatural glory in the Ten Commandments; God’s giving of them to Moses caused such brilliance to come upon him that the people required him to wear a veil.  The reality is that he represented the sinlessness of God in that condition and they – in their sin – couldn’t stand to see such holiness.  As these things unfolded, what should have brought life to the Jews, actually brought condemnation and death.

This condition has continued for Israel to the present age.  Paul describes this in 2 Corinthians 3:14-16:

But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed.

Because the Jews as a whole have rejected Jesus as Messiah – as God – and continued believing that through the Old Covenant they will find salvation, God has kept a veil over their minds to keep them from understanding the truth.  Indeed, their minds are hardened such that some even persecute Christians for daring to appropriate their Scriptures and distort them.

This idea of a hardened mind is not limited to the Jews and their particular situation.  It appears to be something that can come upon, not only an individual, but also an entire class of people.  It can lead to misunderstanding or misinterpreting information -perhaps even a willful rejection of truth – and result in actual harm to others.

Finding a diversion of shows or movies to watch is difficult when your heart is toward the Lord.  The vast majority of such productions include gratuitous sex, language, and/or violence.  Even shows that start out well can devolve into celebrating these deviancies.  My wife and I have begun watching many a series from Netflix (in the past when we subscribed to that) and from Amazon Prime, that we’ve had to turn off and walk away from.

Recently we began watching the PBS-produced Victoria that began in 2016.  (https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/B01N7IM7RE/) For anyone who enjoyed Downton Abbey, you would probably like Victoria as well.  It’s an intriguing fictional representation of Queen Victoria and her reign in the 1800s, which is exceptionally free from moral issues that cause disgust for many of us.  (There is one uh-oh storyline in Season 2, but it resolves well.)

In a Season 3 episode, a cholera epidemic hits a certain area in London.  No one knows why.  The medical establishment is clueless and expresses both their ignorance and biases in diagnosing the causes of the outbreak.  Only one doctor takes a true interest in determining the plague’s cause.  He researches, goes into the area where the infestation is rampant, and as scientifically as he can for that day, tracks down the reason so many succumb, particularly women and children.  It’s because he cares, and cares enough to act, that they end up finding the source and ending the epidemic.  His mind and heart were soft and willing to listen and to learn, unlike those of his colleagues with their hardened minds.

You may guess where I’m going with this.  The medical establishment of today is of one uniform, hardened mind as to the causes, prevention, and treatment of COVID and its related issues.  From all over the world, there are numerous videos and reports that chronicle the deadly approach doctors and hospitals have used to deal with this planned epidemic.  They have abandoned all sane medical practices by declaring that literally everyone has COVID that they see and must be treated accordingly.  Any suggestion that a patient may have some other illness – particularly when the specific symptoms indicate this – is disregarded.  Patients are dealt with as though by robots, uncaring and unaffected by reasoning from family or friends that counter their programming.  I’ve labeled these physicians and their ilk zombie doctors.

There is a dark spiritual aspect to all this.  I did a Prophecy Update on this subject called Puppet Master Conspiracy, that details the demonic manipulation going on: https://rumble.com/vl06lq-awaken-bible-prophecy-update-8-11-21-puppet-master-conspiracy.html.

A few brave medical professionals have spoken out against the wickedness that is being perpetrated by their colleagues.  They are horrified at what they see their beloved profession doing to people they are supposed to be helping.  The stand these individuals have taken has been at great cost for many of them.  They have been ridiculed and lost their positions at the hospitals they served.  They’ve been canceled and deplatformed for daring to speak truth to expose the evil lies perpetrated by Big Pharma, the government, and the lapdog media.  Their ability to get out a counter narrative has been stymied and limited to primarily alternative media sources.  If they’d been allowed to speak freely, the staggering foolishness associated with the whole COVID fiasco, from treating patients only after they were deathly ill, to the extreme vaccine injuries with the massive number of deaths associated with the shots, could have been reduced probably by greater than 75%.  This has led many of us to conclude that all this is the result of a planned genocide.  Only extremely hardened hearts could be subject to such manipulation.

Is there an answer?  Paul states it in 2 Corinthians 3:17:

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Only by the grace of Christ can this be comprehended and stopped.  Some of the medical rebels know the Lord well, others only in passing, and still more are secular.  Regardless, I have no doubt that in one way or another the Lord has worked in the hearts of all these individuals to speak boldly against the travesty they are seeing.  It is Christ who causes these people to act in the interest of others at the expense of their own reputations and careers.

Those of us with a pre-Tribulation Rapture worldview know all that is happening in this regard is preparing the way for the Tribulation.  Nothing of what is done in those horrible seven years originates without preparation.  There is a progression of events that occurs, from devising the technical aspects necessary to institute the worldwide system for controlling buying and selling, to the conditioning of people to obey and eventually worship the son of perdition.  All this and more paves the way for Antichrist’s Beast System.

It all begins with minds that are hardened.  The only solution is Jesus.  The world as we know it isn’t going to get any better.  The demonic realm and their human minions are operating at warp speed.  They will not relent as they see NOW as their time to strike.  God is allowing this so as to define His true church.  When the conditions are right, He will remove us to allow all these wicked actors to have their way, even as He pours out His wrath upon the world.

While we wait for our blessed hope, let’s continue to stand boldly for Jesus.  Perhaps even some of these with hardened minds will see the light.

Trouble and Distress : By Daymond Duck

One of the names of the Tribulation Period is a day of trouble and distress (Zeph. 1:15). Covid-19, mandatory vaccinations, threats to fire the unvaccinated, etc., are causing trouble and distress for millions of U.S. citizens.

Pres. Biden is even threatening to remove governors that oppose his mandates.

If he follows through, it will create more trouble and distress, further dividing the nation that Biden promised to “Build Back Better.”

Something must be torn down or destroyed before it can be built back, and it seems obvious that the unelected Deep State and Biden are deliberately tearing down the U.S.

On Sept. 13, 2021, Gary Bauer reported that the first 8 months of Biden’s administration have produced record illegal immigration, record debt and deficits, record inflation, surging crime, surging Covid cases, and the Taliban’s humiliating defeat of the U.S.

Understand that the Deep State and Biden are desperately trying to replace America’s leading role in the world with a godless world government by 2030, or sooner.

Know that:

  • The Bible clearly teaches that there will be a godless world government led by a Satanically inspired man called the Antichrist in the future (Dan. 7:23; Rev. 13:7).
  • God does not have to abide by the 2030 date. He can slow down world government, speed it up, or let the globalists have it on their time schedule.
  • On Sept. 25, 2015, the UN voted to establish a world government by 2030, and their vote went into effect on Jan. 1, 2016.
  • God is restraining the Antichrist and Satan’s godless world government, and it cannot take place before the Church is removed (II Thess. 2:6-7) by the Rapture. But when the Church is removed, sudden destruction will come upon this unbelieving world (I Thess. 5:3).
  • If God lets Satan and his followers establish their godless world government by 2030, the Rapture will be before 2030.
  • Many prophecy teachers, including this writer, believe there is a gap or a period of unknown length between the Rapture and the Tribulation Period.
  • If that gap is perhaps 1 to 8 years long, the Rapture could be 1 to 8 years before 2030 (2021-2029).

Here are more signs that the Tribulation Period is approaching.

One, concerning the New World Order (world government) and more, on Sept. 13, 2021, it was reported that UN Sec. Gen. Guterres released a document titled “Our Common Agenda” that calls for:

  • A new UN-led world order (a New World Order led by the UN).
  • A New Agenda for Peace (the Tribulation Period will begin with an agenda for peace (a covenant) in the Middle East).
  • A new financial system (a digital one-world currency that allows the tracking of all buying and selling is on the way).
  • Global vaccinations (mandating every nation on earth to obey a world government).
  • Guterres wants to strengthen global governance (world government) in our “troubled climate-change-suffering world” (our day of trouble and distress).
  • Guterres wants a new, more relevant UN (In his words, “multilateralism with teeth.” In Bible words, as this writer understands it, Guterres wants leaders from several nations, Ten Kings, to be given the power to force globalism on the whole world under the false teaching that the world is troubled and distressed by climate change).
  • Guterres wants world leaders to hold a “Global Summit of the Future” in 2023 to study ways to strengthen global governance (make world government more powerful) and make sure global policies are being enforced (could be controls on who buys and sells).
  • Guterres called this his “New Agenda for Peace” (the Antichrist will come on the scene as a man of peace).
  • Guterres wants the G-20 (leaders of the world’s 20 leading economies) to restructure the global financial system.

Two, concerning the Kings of the East, on Sept. 8, 2021, a Chines state-run newspaper (Global Times) published an op-ed suggesting that there will soon be a hostile military confrontation between the U.S. and China on America’s doorsteps, and the U.S. will lose.

Following the Taliban’s defeat of the U.S. in Afghanistan, America’s enemies are no longer afraid to challenge America’s military.

Three, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog, lying and deception: on Sept. 9, 2021, it was reported that Ron Dermer, former Israeli ambassador to the U.S., said the U.S. and international community say they will prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, but they will allow it to happen if Israel doesn’t act.

It is sad to realize that the UN, EU, and U.S. cannot be relied upon to keep their word, but it is true (recall America’s promises to Afghanistan, U.S. citizens there, etc.).

Update: On Sept. 13, 2021, it was reported that experts at the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have concluded that Iran will have enough enriched uranium to produce one nuclear warhead in roughly one month.

Four, concerning lying, deceit, and the Mark of the Beast, despite promising that he would not mandate vaccinations: on Sept. 9, 2021, Pres. Biden issued an Executive Order (EO) mandating that all federal employees get vaccinated in 75 days or lose their job.

His Executive Order also requires every company with more than 100 employees that do business with the federal government to require their employees to be vaccinated or get tested for Covid on a weekly basis.

Several highly respected prophecy teachers believe mandatory vaccinations are a forerunner of mandatory requirements to take the Mark of the Beast, and the loss of one’s job, if they don’t comply, is a forerunner of denying people the right to buy and sell.

This writer believes the Deep State is telling Biden what to do, ignoring the Constitution of the U.S., and trying to control everyone on earth.

They are using immigrants at our southern border and from Afghanistan to spread Covid in the U.S., and blaming it on unvaccinated U.S. citizens.

The Deep State and Biden are the real “Domestic Terrorists.”

Think about it: The Deep State and Biden are threatening to cause U.S. citizens to lose their jobs, their homes, everything they have, the right to go to theaters, the right to travel, the means to feed their children, etc., for disagreeing with them.

As this writer understands it:

  • The Deep State and Biden are saying unvaccinated people must get vaccinated to protect the vaccinated people from Covid.
  • This is an admission that the vaccination doesn’t protect people from Covid.
  • If the vaccination protects people from Covid, unvaccinated people couldn’t give vaccinated people Covid.
  • Why should unvaccinated people lose their jobs, etc., to protect vaccinated people from Covid if the vaccination won’t protect unvaccinated people?
  • It looks like some in the Deep State and Biden are not being honest with people.

Update One: On Sept. 13, 2021, it was reported that a newly formed group of doctors called the Pandemic Health Alliance is saying the best way to stop people from dying and to stop the spread of Covid is to treat people early on with Ivermectin and/or hydroxychloroquine.

Update Two: On Sept. 14, 2021, it was reported that Israel’s Health Minister was caught on a hot microphone telling Israel’s Interior Minister that the purpose of requiring Vaccine Passports is to encourage the unvaccinated to get vaccinated, not to control Covid (restated in this writer’s words). Put another way, putting people out of work, confining people to their homes, etc., forces people to get vaccinated, but it will not stop Covid.

Update Three: On Sept. 14, 2021, it was reported that Cornell University (about 40,000 students) has 322 cases of Covid, and 95% were fully vaccinated.

Update Four: On Sept. 14, 2021, Archbishop Vigano was back in the news for calling the Covid pandemic “An epochal war that is a prelude to the end times.”

Five, concerning the coming global economic collapse: on Sept. 10, 2021, it was reported that wholesale food prices are up 12.7% in the past year (beef prices are up almost 60%), energy prices are up 32.3%, and the Biden administration is pushing another 3 ½ trillion-dollar stimulus package that will cause more inflation.

An economic collapse in the U.S. would probably trigger a global collapse.

Six, concerning the decline of America: on Sept. 8, 2021, it was reported that the National Archives Records Administration (NARA) has placed a “harmful content” warning label on the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence.

According to the NARA, some of the documents may reflect “outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions.”

With the Pres. of the U.S. and others ignoring the Constitution, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, calling conservative Christians domestic terrorists, etc., why should we expect otherwise?

Seven, according to the Bible, Israel will be hated by all nations at the end of the age.

On Sept. 11, 2021, it was reported that a spokesman for the Taliban said the terrorist group that has taken over Afghanistan is willing to establish relations with every nation on earth, including the U.S., but one: the Jewish state of Israel.

The accuracy of God’s Word is amazing.

Eight, concerning population control: it is being reported that leaders want to bring in a world government and reduce the population of the earth because they are troubled and distressed that the world’s growing population will deplete the world’s resources.

Don’t be troubled and distressed by over-population.

God will protect the Church from over-population with the Rapture and greatly reduce the population of the earth during the Tribulation Period (Rev. 6:7-8; 8:11; 9:15).

Instead of the Church accepting a population reduction through abortion, same-sex marriages, euthanasia, Covid deaths, etc., the Church should get the gospel out to make the population reduction as big as possible when the Rapture takes place.

Finally, are you Rapture Ready?

If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.

Every place we go in life, we encounter people carrying myriad viruses and germs. This has always been the case, since the dawn of mankind. It’s a fact of life.

They carry tuberculosis, AIDS, influenza, measles, chickenpox, meningitis, mumps, rubella and all manner of contagions that can be transmitted in all manner of ways.

Yet, we don’t see any calls for digital health passports, no apps on your phone, no social-distancing marks on the floors, no calls to show your papers or a recent negative test for any of these illnesses. Only one. Covid.

And never have we seen a president go on national television like Joe Biden did last week and order everyone to get an injection claiming to prevent any of these diseases under penalty of losing your job and livelihood.

“We are losing patience,” he sneered into the camera with the sinister look of a man possessed.

The power of propaganda: Or is it something more?

Propaganda has always been present in the big government-big media narrative but what we’ve seen recently crosses the line into something more serious.

This bears the hallmarks of a cleverly managed psy op. Mind control.

The goal of the mind-controllers is to create a mob mentality. They whip up mass hysteria, using the fear generated in this case by an invisible virus to manipulate and divide the public into two camps: The obedient and the disobedient. Then they incite the obedient to hate the disobedient.

That was the real purpose of Biden’s speech, to fuel hatred and violence against unvaxxed Americans.

People have been conditioned to believe there is only one disease they must fear to the point of getting up into everyone else’s personal medical business. One disease we must be tested for constantly and even inject ourselves and our children with an unproven, unknown mystery serum. We’re told repeatedly across all media platforms that it’s some kind of magic potion, that it’s the only thing capable of saving us and returning us to that elusive “normal.”

Even when the potion turns out to be a fraud, causing more people to get sick, the obedient ones await their next command from the same set of hypnotists: “Just take one more shot and it will offer the protection you are looking for. ‘Normal’ is just around the bend. Trust us. Trust the science.”

But normal never appears. Just more commands, more “requirements,” more mandates, more shots.

Forget that we already conned you into taking two shots that didn’t work. Don’t ask questions. Just shut up and take another dose of the magic potion, then another, and another, and…

The obedient ones remain locked in a vicious cycle of Stockholm Syndrome, displaying a love-hate relationship with their tormenters, ever ready to switch gears and salute on command to the next big lie. But I sense some may be growing weary of “trusting the science.” Their religious fervor for the needle is waning as fast as the fake protection it delivers.

It’s simply not normal for the establishment to be this determined, to the point of being obsessed, with a single medical treatment, especially one that has failed so abysmally in its stated purpose.

For more insights, please watch the panel discussion below at Frankspeech.com that I was honored to participate in with renown scientist Dr. Judy Mikovits, former Pfizer employee Karen Kingston, attorney Thomas Renz and fellow journalist J.D. Rucker.

Growing Worse by the Day

By Daymond Duck

Things seem to be growing worse by the day, and many students of Bible prophecy believe that is exactly what will happen at the end of the age.

It is bittersweet: Bitter because it signifies that the world is approaching the Tribulation Period, and sweet because it signifies that Jesus is coming soon to straighten things out.

Here are some of the events that recently got this writer’s attention:

One, when the U.S. started withdrawing its troops from Afghanistan, the U.S. turned over some of its military bases to the Afghan government, the Afghan government collapsed, the Taliban took over the nation, and the Taliban freed thousands of captured ISIS troops from Afghan prisons (confirmed by the Pentagon on Aug. 27, 2021).

On Aug. 25, 2021, a group of Islamic State terrorists (called ISIS-K) exploded bombs at the airport in Kabul that killed 12 U.S. Marines, 1 U.S. Navy officer, 169 Afghan citizens, and injured more than 200 other people (U.S. troops, women, children, etc.).

On Aug. 26, prophecy teacher Amir Tsarfati said the U.S. and U.K. were warned several hours before the attack that one was coming.

Tsarfati said Biden sent the CIA to strike a deal with the Taliban to pay tens of millions of dollars (they would call it international aid or something like that instead of a ransom) to allow U.S. citizens passage to the airport.

According to Tsarfati, some officials believe the Taliban then started obstructing those trying to get to the airport because the Taliban would get more international aid/ransom for many hostages than they would get for a few hostages.

The Biden administration then said it had credible information that there would be more terrorist attacks, and it started warning U.S. citizens not to go to the airport (even though they had just 3 days to get there before the Aug. 31 deadline).

Think about this: the Biden administration was relying on a terrorist organization called the Taliban (that released thousands of ISIS terrorists from prison) to protect our troops and citizens from a terrorist attack.

When a U.S. Marine battalion commander created and posted a video criticizing our leaders and demanding accountability for the death of the Marines and Navy officer, he was relieved of his command.

Our leaders (under the influence of the shadow government) are:

  • The ones that gave the names, addresses and biometric I.D. information on U.S. citizens and our Afghan allies to the Taliban terrorists.
  • The ones that abandoned billions of dollars of weapons to the terrorist Taliban and won’t protect our border with Mexico.
  • The ones that turned hundreds of thousands of guns over to the terrorist Taliban and want to take guns away from U.S. citizens (don’t forget that former Pres. Obama also gave guns to the Mexican drug cartels).
  • The ones that are bussing and flying unvaccinated immigrants with Covid-19 into our nation and want to force U.S. citizens to be vaccinated or lose their job.
  • The ones that we are trusting to defend our homeland from terrorists, a North Korea EMP attack, a sneak attack by China, etc.

Who will protect America from the Shadow government and their Antichrist?

If the Biden administration would give the names, addresses and biometric I.D. information of U.S. citizens to Taliban terrorists, why wouldn’t they give that, or vaccination records, or any other information to the head of a world government?

Two, concerning deceit: Biden said, “It is unlikely the Taliban will take over Afghanistan.” (The Taliban took over Afghanistan.)

Biden said, “No Americans will be left behind.” (Americans have been left behind). On Aug. 30, 2021, Gen. Frank McKenzie, head of the U.S. Central Command, said hundreds (perhaps in the low hundreds) of Americans have been left behind, but others said it could be thousands.

Biden’s campaign slogan was “Build Back Better.” (Afghanistan has been destroyed, and the women in a nation of 35 million people have been enslaved).

Biden also said the election was fair, the vaccinations work, etc.?

This reminds me of the king that wore no clothes and no one would tell him.

Update One: On Aug. 31, 2021, it was reported that the Taliban is already going from house to house and executing people.

Update Two: On Aug. 31, 2021, a video was posted of the Taliban flying a U.S. Blackhawk helicopter over Kandahar with a body hanging below it.

Update Three: On Aug. 31, 2021, it was reported that 90 U.S. Generals and Admirals have signed a letter calling for the resignation of Sec. of State Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Milley for botching the Afghanistan pull out. (Biden calls it a great success.)

Three, it is being reported that the shadow government and their Democrat puppets are between a rock and a hard place with Pres. Biden.

With 50 Democrats and 50 Republicans, the U.S. Senate is split, and Vice-Pres. Kamala Harris can break ties by casting the deciding vote.

If Biden dies or is removed, Harris will replace Biden, and the power to break tie votes (including a vote on anyone that is nominated to replace Harris) will switch from Harris to Mitch McConnell (and control of the U.S. Senate will switch from Harris and the Democrats to McConnell and the Republicans).

This could threaten the Democrats’ entire agenda, so the shadow government must keep Biden in office if they can.

Four, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog, on Aug. 25, 2021, the head of Israel’s Defense Forces said Israel has speeded up its plans to deal with Iran’s nuclear program, and money has been budgeted to address the issue.

He added that a team has been assembled to prepare for a strike should one be ordered by the Israeli government.

Five, also concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: on Aug. 27, 2021, Israeli Prime Min. Naftali Bennett met with Pres. Biden at the White House.

Advance reporting indicated that Biden would ask Bennett for two things: 1) A freeze on all settlement construction, and 2) A promise not to attack Iran without U.S. permission.

Said reporting indicated that Bennett would tell Biden the U.S. must immediately deal with Iran’s efforts to build nuclear weapons, or Israel will.

It is obvious that Israel is preparing to strike Iran in the coming weeks if the U.S. and others fail to act.

It is also obvious that Biden hasn’t been told what the Bible says about this, or he doesn’t remember it, or he doesn’t believe it.

This doesn’t bode well for the U.S.

Update One: Following the meeting, it was reported that Bennett told reporters:

  • “These very days (a reference to what is happening in Afghanistan) illustrate what the world would look like if a radical Islamic regime acquired a nuclear weapon; that marriage would be a nuclear nightmare for the entire world.”
  • “We (Israel) will never outsource our security” (never turn control of Israel’s security over to the U.S.).”

Update Two: On Aug. 30, 2021, Israel 365News reported that Biden nodded off to sleep while Bennett was talking during their meeting (it is on video).

These are perilous times, and anyone that says Pres. Biden is qualified to lead the U.S./free world is lying or uninformed.

It is likely that the calls to revise or reset global governance (replace Biden with leaders from a handful of nations; ten) will soon grow louder.

Update Three: On Aug. 30, prophecy teacher Amir Tsarfati reported that Iran has decided that America is weak and will now go “full-blown nuclear.”

He added that Iran is now “openly enriching uranium to 90%.”

Six, concerning war between Israel and her neighbors: on Aug. 29, 2021, the head of Israel’s Defense Forces said, “The IDF is preparing, with a concerted effort, for the possibility of another operation (war) in Gaza.”

His statement followed the launching of several incendiary balloons and rockets into Israel and two weeks of violent protests.

Another war in Gaza could lead to several prophesied wars.

Seven, concerning perilous times (also the Kings of the East): on Aug. 30, 2021, prophecy teacher Amir Tsarfati noted that “China just announced that any vessel, whether it is above the water or under the water, that is entering into Chinese territorial waters or the disputed waters in the South China Sea with Japan and the Philippines must report to the Chinese.”

Many officials believe the disputed waters that China is claiming are international waters, meaning China’s claim is illegal.

Tsarfati added, “While everybody is watching the incompetence of America, (Russia, Turkey, Iran, China and No. Korea) are willing to make a move.”

Eight, concerning the Mark of the Beast and a global tracking system, on Aug. 30, 2021, it was reported that the World Health Organization (WHO) is urging its member nations to “roll out a global digital information system to check if people are vaccinated against Covid-19.”

The WHO wants its member nations to force this system on all other nations, and it wants people that have been vaccinated (and are in this global system) to have benefits that others that are not in it won’t have.

This would be a major step toward a global medical dictatorship.

Nine, concerning a falling away in the Church: Harvard University was founded under Church sponsorship in 1636 to train Puritan pastors. On Aug. 26, 2021, it was reported that the president of Harvard’s organization of Chaplains is an atheist, meaning Harvard has a Chaplain that doesn’t believe in the existence of God.

If the elite that control a prestigious, once-Christian university are willing to allow a Chaplain that doesn’t believe in the existence of God, why is it so difficult to believe that other elite want to establish a godless world government and religion?

If their Chaplain doesn’t believe what the Bible says about God, why should he believe what the Bible says about Satan, the Antichrist, or anything else, and why should any true Church want a pastor that was educated at that institution?

By the way, it is being reported that, as things now stand, universities cannot force student organizations on campus to have pro-LGBTQ officers, pro-abortion officers, etc., but the Biden administration is considering ways to change that.

Ten, on Aug. 27, 2021, LifeSiteNews reported that the head of the Tokyo Medical Association announced that Ivermectin “seems to be effective at stopping COVID-19 and publicly recommended that all doctors in Japan immediately begin using Ivermectin to treat COVID.”

Currently, America’s shadow government, in collusion with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), big pharma, the social media, and others, is suppressing the use of Ivermectin.

Why would these groups suppress the use of an inexpensive, effective drug that will stop Covid and save lives?

Could the belief that Covid is a created crisis that has been designed to reduce the population of the earth, control people, bring in a world government, make the rich richer, etc., be true?
