CV-19 News
Several things to highlight this morning and I’ll go through them rather quickly.

This article spells out and references the actual documentation of Pfizer regarding the CV-19 vaccination: COVID ‘Vaccine Shedding’ [1]

It’s important to understand that Pfizer sees people who have taken the vaccine as subjects in a study or trial. That means it’s an “experiment” to see what happens.

Remember, the FDA has only authorized use of the CV-19 vaccine as “emergency usage” since it did not undergo the months of animal and human trials prior to releasing it to the public. The trials are happening now in everyone who has taken the jab. Pfizer has also stated a number of dangerous things can happen to people who have not taken the vaccination but either breathe the exhaled air of a person who has taken the jab or made skin contact with them. These are listed as severe adverse reactions (SAR ), like potential problems with pregnancy for the unvaccinated individual. Lastly, what is very interesting is that anyone who hasn’t taken the jab but has a SAR is reported to Pfizer but not considered to be part of the “study” so that information is kept separate. Convenient.

In another article, Dr. Peter McCullough, a world-renowned, prominent medical doctor with expertise in treating COVID-19 has issued a rebuke to the US government’s handling of CV-19 virus. Consider that we have gone from being vaccinated optionally to almost mandatory vaccinations in the space of about one year.

In spite of potential problems with it, pharma companies are moving ahead with vaccinations to children as young as six months of age. Again, what is taking place now with the vaccination program for CV-19 is nothing more than the exploratory trials that would normally take place during the clinical studies phase of a vaccine prior to its release to the public. At least one two-year old has died within 6 days of receiving the second dose of the CV-19. Moderna, J & J and AstraZeneca are all using young children as test subjects to determine any problems that might arise from the vaccination. Then they simply say that problems are “coincidental.”

As Dr. McCollough (above), notes, during the Swine Flu epidemic, a vaccine was created but pulled when there were 25 deaths associated with it (with 500 cases of paralysis). He states further:

A typical new drug at about five deaths, unexplained deaths, we get a black-box warning, your listeners would see it on TV, saying it may cause death…And then at about 50 deaths it’s pulled off the market. (emphasis added)

Everything being done today is done all in the name of “keeping us safe” and trying to “save lives,” yet people are dying and that doesn’t appear to matter to experts like Fauci. The fear and hype does not equal the actual threat of CV-19. If we set aside all those who have died in nursing homes allegedly from CV-19, the actual death rate is 0.26%. This is paltry considering what lockdowns, social distancing and other alleged preemptive measures have created throughout global society.

While lockdowns continue in many states, one professor is out there explaining the flawed models that were used to put those lockdowns in place.

Systemic Racism, Gas Prices and Lethal AntiFa
David Cloud of Way of Life Literature has noted a thing or two about “systemic racism” in America, in his most recent article. Clearly, the concept, along with everything related to CV-19 and including Critical Race Theory (CRT), is being used to help push the coming “Great Reset.”

Gas shortages like the 1970’s are here again. Fascinating that the last time we had severe gas shortages, it was under another Democrat president’s administration (Carter), and we appear to be there again. Lines are forming outside gas stations, some stations have “no gas” signs, and prices are going up and will continue to go up due to the alleged cyber attack (by Russia, no less), on the Colonial Pipeline in the USA. With that pipeline currently out of commission (having been shut down for safeguards), gas shortages are happening.

Of course, it’s also translates to higher cost of goods, including food. This adds gas costs to consumer goods headed to market via big rigs. Not sure when this will end but it does not appear that the Biden administration is taking the bull by the horns.

On top of this, AntiFa is not only out in force throughout the USA, but they are now armed and dangerous. A group called AntiFaWatch has been cataloging incidents of terror, violence and illegal activities and notes that AntiFa is on the move throughout the United States. They’re not limiting themselves to illegal activities in blue states or cities either, but are now in red areas. They block traffic, but not content to simply “house arresting” people, they are attacking vehicles and people inside the cars, even cars with children. They have clearly upped their game and often carry and brandish long rifles or pistols. In a few situations, they have been shot at (and/or killed), by motorists, but they also shoot at cars trying to flee the violent scene.

Anyone who knows anything about history understands that it is repeating itself and by the book. Prior to the Bolshevik Revolution, criminals were deliberately released from jail/prison and allowed to run amok in society causing massive problems for law-abiding citizens. This ultimately created upheaval and led to the overthrow of that society. This has occurred multiple times throughout history prior to numerous “revolutions.”

It appears that society is being pushed toward massive discontent and upheaval. I believe this is exactly what globalists want to ensure that the “Great Reset” is put into place.

I’m not a prophet or seer as I’ve said many times before, but I don’t see things getting better, do you? Help yourself and your families by being aware of your surroundings. The best defense against AntiFa is to not allow yourself to be put into a situation that could mean having to defend the lives of your family or yourself.

Ask God for guidance, wisdom and discernment. But I would caution that if you are unwilling to delve into His Word daily, He might not be inclined to answer you. Seek Him. Pursue Him through His Word and spend time in specific prayer. Ultimately, it will guard you and your relationship with Him. Let’s look briefly at someone who started correctly but ended badly.

In 2 Chronicles 26, we are introduced to Uzziah, who became king of Judah at the age of 16. This apparently was a decision made by the people of Judah. His reign lasted a total of 52 years. According to Scripture, Uzziah started out very well. As noted in the text, Uzziah “set himself to seek God.” He did this with the help of Zechariah. Please note that Zechariah “…instructed him in the fear of God and as long as he sought the LORD, God made him prosper” (emphasis added).

How many times have I not seen that key in Scripture; the “fear of the LORD”? Here it is again. Fear the LORD. Could it be any plainer? We know that children often love their parents and are loved by those parents. However, there is an element of fear in that relationship that often works to keep children from being rebellious or recalcitrant. As I’ve noted before, it is a fear based on a bit of self-preservation for not wanting to come under a parent’s disciplinary action. As children grow into adults, this often refines itself so that adult children fear causing their parents grief or sadness.

It appears throughout Scripture, the main underlying theme of true followers of God is that we should maintain a level of fear toward Him. Certainly He deserves our fear, if for no other reason than He can destroy the soul. As Christians, we know this will never be something we experience because of our faith in Him, His love for us and the His sealing us with His Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13).

However, it is important to understand that our fear of God should transition over time to a strong, consistent desire to fear grieving Him or saddening Him because of our sin and/or rebelliousness. Uzziah started out very well. He was 16 when he began to rule and he very likely knew he needed the wise counsel of people like Zechariah. He sought it, most likely.

Uzziah made some excellent decisions as well as very bad ones. Under him there was no revival because the people did not see fit to come back to God with a whole heart. Later, Uzziah’s careless attitude ultimately caused his failure. We should take note because it is too easy to fail, isn’t it?

2 Chronicles 26:16 tells us where he started to go wrong.

But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense. (KJV; emphasis added)

Isn’t that the way? We come to a place of peace and success and we think we did that and congratulate ourselves because of it. It’s called pride and incrementally overtakes us.

This pride through lack of fear of Uzziah’s caused him to do something sacrilegious and stupid. He actually went into the Temple of God and wanted to burn incense on the altar of incense! In other words, he supremely overstepped the boundaries of his position and tried to do what a king was not allowed to do and was reserved solely for the Aaronic Priesthood.

Azariah, the priest, who was zealous for the LORD, decided to do something about it. He withstood the king. Imagine doing that and the guts it must have taken. Yet, Azariah knew he stood with the Lord and Uzziah stood against God with pride and ego (two of Satan’s biggest tools used against us).

God stepped in to offer “correction” and discipline. After Azariah confronted the king, verse 19 tells us that Uzziah became extremely angry about being thwarted. So, God caused Uzziah to have leprosy starting with his forehead. God could have killed Uzziah right then and there, but chose instead, to make it impossible for him to ever enter the Temple again. He remained king until his death (though an outcast), sharing the reign with his son, Jotham, who took over after Uzziah’s death. I wonder if God would have removed the leprosy had Uzziah truly repented? We simply don’t know as there never appears to have been any repentance on Uzziah’s part until his death.

While fear is the one great motivator to remain true to God, it doesn’t take much for pride and arrogance to push us off the righteous path of fearing the LORD. Look closely at your life as I will mine. Are we in danger of allowing pride to gain a foothold so that we cease fearing the Lord? This is always a possibility and if we dare think it cannot happen, then we know it will or has.

Be faithful in always endeavoring to work out your salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12).

Pitfalls of Success Would You Know God, Pt 1?


  • 1. Jen B  |  May 11, 2021 at 2:40 PM

    Uzziah. Very good lesson for us all. you likely have mentioned this in past posts…do you get the idea re Covid that the conflicting information is deliberate? Masks, no masks. Vaccines, no vaccines…If you were to listen to what one side of media is telling viewers, you would see and hear one reality under which they are convinced their lives are in danger from “anti Vaxxers” racists, domestic terrorists and police officers as well as anyone who doesn’t support the biden agenda and climate/science deniers. They are terrified of this group and truly believe these are the dangers that must be eradicated. The other side is terrified of the biden agenda being unrolled, which is so extreme, it’s almost a parody except it is real, wherein in blitzkrieg fashion they are unleashing every “conspiracy theory” that the so called “right” has been afraid of for years. It is like a malicious, malevolent and almost juvenile dreamed up experiment to evoke emotional responses in the masses and create terror and chaos.

    I have heard repeatedly from more than a few Bible pastors and teachers, whom I greatly respect, that we should not separate with our unbelieving friends and family over political issues. “Be the light!” They say. Well, I am really struggling with the way this is being applied. Politics, yes. But slaughtering babies after they are born, or while in the womb? Denying biological science, being for lawlessness in government as well as releasing violent criminals onto the civilian population? If someone is for these things, particularly the slaughter of the innocents, I would like them to unfriend me immediately. My city dwelling friends do not have a clue what is going on. All they are concerned with is restaurants and getting the vaccine.

    It seems to me this compromise with the world in order to “be the light” is misunderstood and misapplied. Unless someone wants to hear about Jesus Christ and the salvation He offers, I really have nothing to say.

    On an encouraging note, I just read, with delight, the testimony of a believer named Zvi Kalisher. Have you heard of him? Oh my oh my. How I love the zeal he had for sharing the LORD. He has a book about his mission work in Israel. It was as joy to read and hear his stories.


    Blessings and Peace in Christ Jesus.

      I believe there is a great deal of misinformation out there and it is difficult to know exactly what that misinformation is. One of the guidelines I go by is whether or not the medical professional speaking or writing articles is being censored or even banned from most social networks. If so, there’s a great chance that he/she is right, but simply opposed to the accepted narrative that is making the rounds.

      I noticed today that my comment regarding a two-year old who died shortly after receiving a CV-19 “vax” has been “debunked” by “factcheckers.” These ppl pick and choose what they will and won’t deal with. They pick out a gnat, but ignore the infestation of flies. It’s difficult to wade through their “fact” checking. I’ve done it before and have seen how they twist things to make their opinion appear as truth.

      Society is going through an upheaval for certain. We are being pitted against others with whom we do not see eye to eye politically. It’s really politics that’s driving everything. Politics of CV-19, politics of the election, etc.

      We have family and a few friends visiting in June. Several have received the vax and I already know we don’t see eye to eye on other things as well even though we are all Christian (or most anyway). I’ve determined I will not allow myself to be drawn into political discussion. It’s simply not worth it. I don’t get it frankly, but that’s what is.

      In some cases, it might be best to let people “move on” and live their life. I know we are not supposed to ignore the people of this world and neither can we have fellowship with darkness. The problem is when you come across other people who claim to be Christians, and as you say, approve of abortion and other things that I cannot imagine thinking are okay from a biblical perspective. Then you have someone like Franklin Graham pushing the vaccine and daring to say that Jesus would take it if He were alive today. I fully disagree with Graham.

      What I find interesting is that when Jesus walked the earth, people either followed Him or rejected Him often based on what He SAID. I think it is our job to tell the truth and that often includes referring to and reiterating Scripture to people (or at least generalized comments based on the Bible). This will likely separate the sheep from the goats and those who find it hard to agree will naturally wander away.

      So, if my opinion is that abortion is nothing more than modern day worship of Molech, not “healthcare” in any way, shape or form, the person is perfectly free to disagree with me. However, since we cannot come to an agreement except to “agree to disagree,” then likely our conversation will become more and more superficial and the other party will probably be less and less inclined to want to be around me.

      What I’ve learned is that constantly bantering about politics is useless. Even discussing other issues can be pointless. My sister-in-law believes that pharma companies actually want to help. They don’t deliberately make things that are bad for people but ultimately want to help us. I couldn’t DISAGREE more but decided not to say anything. The biggest issue for me is that pharma companies make BILLIONS each year and they all have ZERO liability. Those two things alone tell me what I need to know about those companies. If I were to try to explain this to her, it wouldn’t go over well.

      When they’re here in June, it’ll be interesting to see what we DON’T discuss. I already had a slightly heated conversation with the husband several years ago regarding gun control. Turns out, he aligns more with those who believe the more gun control, the better. This is in spite of the fact that he could not answer the question I posed regarding which ONE law will keep guns out of the hands of criminals. He had no answer to that but simply kept going back to, “Do people really need a gun with a 30 round magazine?” He was also in favor of psychological testing to ensure that someone was suited to owning a gun. He was in the military, but he’s lived all his life in California.

      He thinks because he watches CNN and FOX both, that he is well-rounded and gets the clear picture. It’s hopeless in many ways to even try to explain things to him.

      I have heard of Friends of Israel, but his name does not ring a bell. I’ll check him out. Thanks Jen!

    Thanks Modres…So much going on…so much wickedness…so little time for people to give their lives to Jesus…He’s the only way.

    Gas shortages along the East Coast…NC hit pretty bad. We also have this going on too…


    Blessings and thanks.

      Yep. A number of gas stations in our area are out. Found a Chevron at $3/ga. Trying to find non-ethanol for my small motors. Difficult.

      I read about whatBiden is doing. Abysmal but ppl are smashing his first 130 days has been great.

      Of course they blame Trump for many of these issues like inflation etc.

      Oh well.
