I experienced something this weekend that bothered me to my soul.
I visted a church where we’ve been many times over the years. This time was so strange. There was signage up and reminders that to enter a mask was required. I know you may be tempted to turn this off but to listen to the end.
We decided to ask someone we knew if it would be an issue or if we would get kicked out for refusing to wear a mask. She said no so we went in. We weren’t inside for more than two minutes when I was approached. My husband was not approached. I was asked if I had a mask to put on or my kids. While the person was holding a Costco sized pack of masks in front of me. Ok, that was slightly over exaggerated, but it was big. I politely said no I didn’t have one and we don’t wear masks! She scoffed and stated well we have a mandate here and walked away. I felt compelled to share with my husband and we were trying to decide if we should leave or not. We decided to stay. I fought the urge to be triggered by the aggression to comply to the man made rule of a faulty system.
I sat satisfied thinking that I had every right to be in the house of the Lord to support a friend who was about to preach. The audacity of satan to force me to cover up my Imago Dei. More things happened including the massacre of the Gospel, followed by the equating the blessings of God to material things possessions. I was left pretty devastated by the state of the body of Christ as a whole. Many of us and our churches have Covid as their pastor and the news as their testimony sevice.
I thank God that my family and I are blessed to be under a Pastor who cares about the Gospel being preached 100% of the time. Who loves and fears God rather the fearing man and the culture.
This late in the game many of us are still riddled with fear. Some of us have an Easy Baked Oven type of grasp on Christianity. Like Jesus is working in lives using a soft Joel Osteen voice correcting people with marshmallow fluffy words topped with sweet sweet prosperity caramel sauce.
Ok, I might be a little hungry but it is sad how we are misrepresenting Christ as some churches are holding on to faulty standards unfounded by the Constitution and the Word of God. We should be the fearless ones. We should be trusting God and worshipping Him unashamed instead of mumbling through our muzzles(masks) singing no longer a slave to fear. Its inanity.
If the devil can make you to doubt an attribute of God you will start to question everything. Is it a coincidence that churches were closed? No!
This is dress rehearsal for something bigger! Please understand this ladies.
Their is so much deception in play.
There is so much fear in play because the devil knows that panicked people are more susceptible to suggestions.
God the creator of all things created is
the same God who parted the Red Sea. This is the same God that healed the lame and gives sight to the blind. Not enough then I’m gonna to take it more personally. He is the same God that saved me in my lowest point of my life. This same God brought me through various traumas allowing me to lose the victim mentality. This is the same God who kept our baby alive as she was on the bypass machine for almost 3 hrs and brought her off life support after 5 days.
God is BIGGER THAN THIS TOO!
I can’t understand how the financially elite and lying politicians are playing God in people’s lives.
Full trust, full obedience, full allegiance belongs to the Lord.
This stuff going on, the lockdowns, masks, social distancing, vaccines that don’t work, boosters that don’t work ect are all apart of a test run for the Antichrist and the mark of the beast.
Let’s repent and ask God to open our eyes to where we as the body of Christ at large have let down on Christ’s Holy standard. We’ve lost focus.
I’ll restate- If the devil can make you to doubt an attribute of God you will start to question everything.
2 Tim 1:7 -For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
4 say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.”
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.
19 When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.
5- You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6- nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
