Valiant For Truth in a Post-Truth World of Chaos

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. 14 Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, 15 and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE; 16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:10-17 (NASB) 

42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me. 43 Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me. 46 Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do you not believe Me? 47 He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God.” John 8:42-47 (NASB) 

When this Covid-19 so-called “pandemic” started I was, and still am, very skeptical of what we were being told by the “authorities” at the C.D.C., the W.H.O. and, of course, the U.S. Government. Is it a real virus? Yes, it is, but I have done my own research on it and authorities that know a lot more about viruses and Immunology than I do have universally said that this virus is man-made. Is it akin to the Black Death or the Spanish Flu in how deadly they are? No, it is not. The recovery rate of those who get infected by it is over 99%. During WWI the death rate of the Spanish Flu was in the millions worldwide. It was caused by the H1N1 virus which spread from animals (probably birds to pigs) then to humans. There have been genuine pandemics throughout history and they have all been deadly until immunity was finally accomplished, which in most cases was through the existing immune systems we all have. So why is this virus being treated so differently? Continue reading
