One of the most important lessons that I have learned over the last month, month and a half in the midst of the coronavirus situation is how easy so many people are manipulated and influenced. This has been an eye opener for me because I see how easily I was influenced and manipulated which is why scripture tells us to be careful of who we entertain or who we allow to entertain us.
Yes, I get that there is a real virus and we do have to take precautions so we do not make the situation worse but shutting down most of the country has been an economic disaster for so many including small businesses. Again, I understand wanting to be cautious but at the same time, the numbers from top medical experts do not indicate a pandemic and the numbers surely do not spell out shutting down the country as we have.
When I look back over the last month, month and a half then I realize just how much of an influence that Satan’s secular system has on so many in the country. This does not reassure me that people are truly discerned and aware of what’s going on especially when we consider that all of this has been an effort to slow and derail President Trump’s reelection campaign and no, this is not a reelection letter for President Trump but the writing is all over the wall and too many of us are taking the bait.
Trust me; I would rather be discussing something else because I am so tired of talking about this virus. Honestly, I have had to turn off my television from most new programs because all these programs want to discuss is the virus or how President Trump needs to be out of office because of the virus. For me, it’s sickening but again, the writing is on the wall. If enough people were not listening to the bogus news coverage then the stations would have a decision to make and this includes all the stations, not just a few. This is not just impacted one part of life but nearly all aspects of daily life.
Think about this: we are being told to stay home and not go to church but it’s okay to go WalMart. Okay, we all need food and I understand this but we are not to gather at a restaurant but we can go to a liquor store or convenient station to buy lottery tickets, cigarettes, beer, and/or liquor but it’s not okay to gather together to worship and praise God. Again, think about it for a moment: it was not okay for Christian to gather together for worship services on Good Friday or Resurrection Sunday but it’s okay to spend money on alcohol and tobacco and gather together in large groups at WalMart or other marketplaces.
Honestly, I’ll be the first to admit that I am not the brightest bulb in the package or the sharpest knife in the drawer but when we look at what’s going on then it’s easy to see that we are being manipulated to buy into an apocalypse type of virus that possesses the numbers of the common cold or flu. While this is fun for me to talk about, I would much rather be discussing more important issues but too many people have bought into the lies and deceit and rearranging their lives based on a false narrative. Unfortunately, it has been like this for far too long but scripture warns us about this: “Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully” (Psalsm 52:2).
People may ask themselves why would a group of people do this and the answer is simple: control. When a group of people has power and/or authority over another group, their true colors come out and we see what they are truly about: The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them” (Proverbs 11:3). If someone thinks for a moment that a group of wealthy and powerful people would not lie to them or mislead them about something then they have not been paying attention. While I do consider myself a patriot, I do understand the importance of staying in power for certain groups of officials and they will stop at nothing to keep and/or regain it: “Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate” (Psalms 34:21).
This is the last of my rant for this article but I seriously hope that by reading this article and thinking about what has happened over the last month, month and a half then more people will see what is truly at play here. We are not in lockdown because it is best for our health but rather, to keep control over us and this is true for all sides of the political aisle whether Democrat, Republican or Independent and this is not a political article but the roots and agenda of this virus is most certainly a political one and anyone who knows me knows that I am not a doom and gloom guy but if we do not wake up before it’s too late then I’m afraid it’ll be doom and gloom for God-fearing Americans and Christians. Because of this, please, think about it: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2).
Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully”–Psalms 52:2
