News and Notes Update: February 1, 2021

Understand please that when I say the PreTrib Rapture, I am talking about the Lord taking His Church/Body to be with Him prior to the pouring out of His WRATH. The Bible says “day of the Lord” is the start of God pouring out His wrath onto humanity and this earth. It is not a particular “day” but a period of time; the seven year Tribulation period. The entirety of that seven years is the pouring out of God’s wrath and note, all events of the Tribulation are directed by God from His throne room as evidenced by the fact that the apostle John is called up to heaven to begin viewing those events from that vantage point (Rev 4).

So, while the Church is fully exempt from all aspects of God’s wrath, we are not exempt from tribulation (small “t”) and persecution in this life. In fact, we are promised tribulation (Matthew 10:16-42; John 15:20; 2 Timothy 3:12; see also Revelation 2:10). Persecution is promised. If you are not at all being persecuted for being a Christian, maybe your circle of friends is too small. Maybe you’re not being an effective witness for Christ. I’m not trying to make you feel guilty. I’m simply noting that you may wish to take a look at things. Are you afraid to stand up for Jesus? Are you unwilling to speak out against the things that society has said we cannot be “negative” about? I’m not saying to go looking for persecution. I’m simply saying be prepared for the fact that if you’re not suffering for it now, it may well be on the way.

News and Notes Update: October 28, 2020

Two Christian workers at Kroger who were fired because they refused to wear aprons that highlighted the LGBTQ rainbow logo. They believed wearing the apron with that logo was tantamount to approving the LGBTQ lifestyle and violated their religious beliefs.

Asian Hornets Have Landed and Other Things in Society

This is all a sign to me that these things are largely in place to remain in society. While we may see a few restrictions fade away (and masks may be one of those things to fade), I believe a large percentage of restrictions that exist now with more on the way, will remain in society and people will simply get “used” to them. We do this every time. Whether it was the Patriot Act or any number of things that have interrupted society’s normal flow, many of these adoptive efforts become permanent. Remember how well the government uses Hegelian Dialectic.

Are You Afraid, Christian? Part 2

Wittkowski’s point (and I would encourage everyone to read the entire article), is that when we move among other people in society, there is a “herd immunity” that is developed because we briefly come in contact with people who may well be carrying the flu or viruses and may not know it, or be asymptomatic. This is often why doctors who see many patients per day do not often get sick. They spend very little time with those sick patients and the contact they do have allows their immune systems to rise to the occasion to defend their bodies from illness. He believes because we are sheltering in place and not moving as we would normally in society, we are actually causing the Coronavirus to hang around far longer and not helping our own immune systems “taste” the virus to fight it off.

Perspective on Coronavirus

In another ten page article, we read, “Christians must keep in mind that the majority of public health and other government officials currently guiding their populaces (and actually terrorizing them in many jurisdictions) regarding the coronavirus pandemic are immersed in the dominant
worldview of our culture: atheistic materialism.”

Curiouser and Curiouser…COVID-19

Unless I’m completely mistaken, this “pandemic” is not even coming close to the situation that existed with SARS or even last year’s Flu. Thousands upon thousands died and during the Obama administration, he seemed to wait until a few thousand people had died before he even began to do anything. Even then, there was never any reference to a pandemic. Society did not grind to a halt.
