I Prayed have prayed
Lord Jesus, we know You have given us the freedom to decide what goes into our bodies, which are a Temple of the Holy Spirit. We pray You will protect the medical freedoms of those who live in our nation, as well as the countries of the world.

Thomas Jefferson once said, “If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” These strong words, spoken hundreds of years ago, seem fitting for the times we are living in right now. As threats of Covid mandates and restrictions loom over the lives of everyone around the world, one wonders what Thomas Jefferson might have said if he were living in the year 2021. Numerous countries are experiencing what many deem “medical tyranny” as governments are seeking to enforce their solutions to the Covid-19 pandemic. Israel is one of those countries that leads the charge in making sure every citizen is following their plan for vaccination.

On July 22, 2021 Israeli Prime Minster Naftali Bennett issued a warning to his country: “One million Israelis are refusing to get vaccinated…They are endangering the entire population. They are endangering the other 8 million citizens in the country.” Addressing his nation from Tel Aviv, Bennett stated that the government’s goal is to allow Israelis to live their lives freely without having to impose Covid-19 lockdown measures. “We want to have an open and safe country. We are managing this campaign responsibly… and on the basis of facts and data,” Bennett declared.

Bennett’s statement poses a huge problem because the “facts and data” he’s referring to are presented from only one side. This is creating two classes of people in Israel: the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. Regardless of your stance on the vaccines, something that must be considered is the fact that they are still in the experimental stages. According to clinicaltrials.gov, Moderna’s trials are not complete until October 27, 2022. Johnson and Johnson’s are complete January 2, 2023. Astra Zeneca’s finish on February 14, 2023. Pfizer’s completion date is May 2, 2023. The vaccines are still under an EUA (emergency use authorization), which means they are not FDA approved. The FDA’s website says: “Under an EUA, FDA may allow the use of unapproved medical products.”

In addition, thousands of deaths are being reported by systems which track vaccine injuries and deaths such as VAERS in the United States, UK Yellow Card in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and EudraVigilance for countries in the European Economic Area (EEA) to name a few. In addition, thousands of incidences of Bell’s Palsy, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, blood clots, heart issues, miscarriages and neurological problems have been reported.

Vaccines usually go through many stages of testing, which can last as long as five years. This has not been the case with any of the vaccines on the market for Covid. In addition, many doctors around the world are attesting to successful treatment of Covid-19 with hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, and Budesonide. These treatments, however, are not widely used in places like Israel. Even in the United States, many people do not know they are available because they are not commonly prescribed by doctors and the media silences those who tout their effectiveness.

In the case of Israel, there is a clear conflict of interest because an exclusive deal was made with Pfizer. Israel paid a premium price to receive plentiful supplies of Pfizer’s vaccines. In exchange, they would become a testing ground, providing data and statistics on the effectiveness of Pfizer’s vaccine. In January of 2021 Former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “Israel will be a global model state, …Israel will share with Pfizer and with the entire world the statistical data that will help develop strategies for defeating the coronavirus.”  Israel’s health minister, Yuli Edelstein stated, “We said to Pfizer…that the moment you give us the vaccine, we’ll be able to vaccinate at the speed they’ve never heard of.”  The goal was clear–to test it on the entire population.

The question looming over all of this is monumental. What happens to the medical and religious rights of an entire nation of people when their own leaders volunteer them to be used as a testing ground for pharmaceutical companies that stand to make billions? How is it ok to strongly coerce people to get a vaccine that has not been proven to be safe, even by the FDA? In his speech on July 22 Naftali Bennett said: “If you know a vaccine refuser, convince them, explain to them that they are risking others’ health…Don’t give up on them.”  I would call this strong coercion.

Bennett made it clear in his public statement that he believes those who refuse the vaccine are endangering the lives and freedoms of Israeli citizens. He lays out a series of what many are calling “punishments” for unvaccinated Israelis. For instance, they will not be able to attend large events unless they’ve received a negative Covid test result, which must be paid for out of pocket. Bennett stated:  “Those who refuse vaccines are endangering their health, those around them and the freedom of every Israeli citizen. They are endangering our freedom to work, the freedom of our children to learn and the freedom to hold celebrations with the family. Those who refuse vaccines hurt us all because if all of us were vaccinated, we would all be able to maintain daily life. But if one million Israelis continue to not get vaccinated, this will oblige the eight million others to shut themselves in their homes. Therefore, the (Corona) Cabinet decided today that as of August 8, those who refuse vaccines will not be able to go to the cinema, the theater, the synagogue, the amusement park, the soccer game or any activity with over 100 people, indoors or out, unless they bring negative results from a coronavirus test, at their expense. Yes, they will fully bear the costs of the test.” Bennett also explained that the unvaccinated will endure stricter quarantine requirements.

Bennett emphasized that every citizen over age 12, who doesn’t have a medical reason not to, must go get vaccinated. This is shocking when you consider the many cases of myocarditis that have been reported in teenagers in Israel and around the world. In the United States alone, there have been at least 389 reports of heart problems attributed to the Pfizer vaccine in 12-17 year-olds. Highly respected pathologist Dr. Roger Hodkinson gave dire warnings about the damage that is occurring to the hearts of young people by saying that “myocarditis is never mild…It’s an inflammation of the heart muscle–the pump of the body…the big thing about heart muscles and heart muscle fibers is that they do not regenerate.” Hodkinson cautions that irreversible damage can occur. Besides myocarditis, blood clotting disorders have also been reported in 12-17 year-olds, as well as more than 2,000 cases of anaphylaxis.

There’s also well-established data showing that young children and adolescents do not experience severe cases of Covid. Young adults and children in particular, have robust immunity to not only Covid, but other diseases. Thus, there is no need to force vaccinations.

One of Bennett’s statements was quite alarming. “I respect different views, but there’s a time and a place in which this discussion needs to stop.”  Actually, when it comes to our health, discussion should never stop! The truth is that there needs to be an open forum where concerns about vaccine safety can be discussed from many perspectives, as well as alternative treatments. Doctors and scientists who voice their opinions are silenced, while drug companies like Pfizer are given a free pass. Even Robert Malone, the inventor of mRNA technology, is being silenced for speaking out and asking for open dialogue about the safety of the vaccines.

Renowned cardiologist Peter McCullough, along with many other doctors, have said that early treatment of Covid-19 is vital to helping patients recover. This includes the use of monoclonal antibodies, hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, and colchicine. McCullough testified before the Texas Senate Committee of Health and Human Services and presented evidence detailing how information pertaining to the successful treatment of Covid-19 is being suppressed by the media, as well as in the medical community. This is happening all around the world.

The American Society of Physicians and Surgeons offers a wide array of at home Covid treatments and provides a list of doctors who will enlist early treatment for their patients. In addition, America’s Frontline Doctors have been at the forefront when it comes to educating Americans about the use of hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, and Budesonide for the treatment of Covid-19.

In a country like Israel, where the scars of the Holocaust still linger, it’s sad to see such blatant division when it comes to medical freedom. Two classes of citizens have been created. When we see this going on in another free nation, we must wonder where our own country is headed. In France and the United Kingdom, protests continue as people struggle to hold on to their medical and religious rights. In some nations such as the Philippines, there doesn’t seem to be much choice. Their leader, Rodrigo Duterte, bluntly states, “You choose vaccine or I will have you jailed.”

In the end, there are going to be different views when it comes to vaccination. But we should always have the freedom to look at the issue from all angles and debate it publicly without fear of censorship, shaming, or punishment.

Doctors, scientists, leaders, and even the average soccer mom should not be shut down simply because they do not agree with what the media, government, and the CDC are saying about the vaccines. Freedom of speech is critical to maintaining health freedom and keeping the public’s trust. In addition, we should be given free choice without coercion. If we lose the right to decide what medical treatments our bodies are subjected to, then what other rights will be taken?

Prayer Points:

Lord, we pray that our freedom to choose what medical treatments go into our bodies would be respected and protected.

Lord, we pray that the culture of division between the vaccinated and unvaccinated would be eliminated.

Lord, we pray for open dialogue when it comes to treatments for Covid-19. We pray that doctors, nurses, lawmakers, and the average citizen would be given the opportunity to present opinions and information without fear of being ostracized or censored.

Lord, we pray that lawmakers around the world would stand up for the medical rights and freedoms of their people.

If ever there were people who should “know better” than to allow themselves to be “controlled” or “mandated” to do something that makes no medical sense, it is the Israelis!! I pray God will open the eyes of their understanding to say “No” to this mandate! When a government wants to “control” its citizens, it is simply wrong! IT IS CONTROL!! Unfortunately, people, everywhere, are allowing themselves to be manipulated into doing this! This should be a big “red flag” to people. Lord, help people to see that we are losing our medical freedom! Help them to stand up strong against this! We bind, in Jesus name, the spirit of fear, that is coming against people in every country! Father, we loose, in the name of Jesus, your peace, over this country and over your people. You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of love and power and a sound mind!

Thomas Jefferson was right. The last people in the world we should take medical advice from is the government. It’s not their area of expertise. Nor any so called “experts” who are paid by the government. I would only listen to doctors & scientists who are not receiving federal dollars. Whether it’s about climate change or whatever. People getting federal dollars for anything are now suspect as they have done so much to discredit themselves. Thank you Lord for giving us this great awakening.

https://www.bitchute.com/video/NZU2pSlZiI5M/. Please watch! My friend sent this to me tonight regarding a stern warning to NOT TAKE THIS SHOT THAT ISN’T A VACCINE, BUT A DESTROYER OF YOUR NATURAL IMMUNITY! Isaiah 41:10; “Fear thou not; For I am with thee; be not dismayed for I AM thy GOD: I will strengthen thee; yea I will help thee; yea I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Joel 2:15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly. Joel 2:12 Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: 13) And rend your heart and not your garments, and turn into the LORD your GOD: for HE is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. 15) blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered together in MY Name, there AM I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:18 “Verily I say unto you, Whatsover ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” FATHER GOD please impress upon YOUR people that we must gather together to destroy the works of the devil and demons on this earth. Help us to fast and to remember that “all power in heaven and earth” has been passed to us from JESUS CHRIST! Help us to decree null and void the vaccines that people in their ignorance and unbelief have taken in JESUS Name! FATHER we repent for not fasting and praying and for allowing wicked men and women to think they are in power when the Only Power is YOU! Help us take back the Dominion and Territory that we through our complacency have lost; FATHER GOD I stand the gap and repent for Christians that has given YOUR power away to the enemy. I receive YOUR forgiveness this night in the MIGHTY PRECIOUS Name of JESUS CHRIST! Amen! Saints gather with your family and friends and pray, pray, pray and GOD promises to hear us and respond!

“They are endangering the entire population”??? Think about this logically. If someone chooses to NOT receive a jab, then this virus would only affect the unvaccinated. The vaccinated should be protected. Unless these vaccines don’t work. In which case, why is anyone taking them? Take vitamin D and lots of sunshine. Don’t take the “ginger ale”! Prophetic dream…. https://hisinheritance.org/2021/05/04/pink-mousse-ginger-ale-2021/

Seek out reliable and recognized authorities and stand up for your viewpoint. This component of the move toward One World Government will be relentless with the pressure to take away our rights and impose their will on us as long as we let them. I seek God’s wisdom and His direction not to be a victim of this agenda but to be a victor in the battle for individual rights. God Bless.

I am praying for God to speak to Prime Minister Bennett, to wake him up to sound wisdom. I am praying for the Israeli people to not lose their freedoms.

As so many below have said, let us trust in our living God, who made heaven and earth and the seas, and everything in them.
It is NOT He who has given us this spirit of fear…
On the other hand, our God, whose steadfast love endures forever, has given us a spirit of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Let us exercise that sound mind.
Of course, all authority comes from our God, and all this lockdown stuff must surely be under His authority, to give his children a time of rest and renewal, and a time to examine – in the Light of His presence and His Word – what is being said. Does it even make sense?
Our bodies are His temple. He has given us stewardship over them. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. But the fear of man is a snare.
Let us, like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, refuse to bow to or worship any god who threatens with fire, fear, ostracism, whatever, for our God is well able to deliver us.

This is the attack of Satan on His people! God shall protect His people. The lies of the enemy shall be exposed and truth revealed. A remnant shall remain. This entire evil globalist plot of the plandemic and bio-genetic weapon, the so called vaccines, shall be defeated by faith in God, by His people putting on the armor of God and rising to bring this godless giant down. Stand on the Rock against the flood of tyranny in Israel and around the world!

The narrative everywhere has been that the unvaccinated are endangering the vaccinated. This is totally ILLOGICAL. If the vaccine protects you from getting it, then how are you in danger from an unvaccinated person?

Or are they showing that they really have no faith in the vaccine?

Matthew 10:26 Therefore, don’t be afraid of them, since there is nothing covered that won’t be uncovered and nothing hidden that won’t be made known.

First, this is NOT a vaccine. Under the guidelines for application of a vaccine it must do the following:
1)it must provide immunity to the virus
2) it must protect the recipient from getting the virus
3) it must reduce deaths, infections, circulation and transmission of the virus.

This “vaccine” does not provide any of these.
It is a shot just like we refer to the annual flu shot.

The ONLY person that stops the spread, are the millions of COVID19 survivors that have NOT had the jab. They have immunity, cannot get re-infected, and cannot spread it to cause harm. We need to wake up and go back to Microbiology 101. They still teach that right?

The HighWire with Del Bigtree (four-time Emmy award winner for documentaries) is a great place to see interviews with many of the people mentioned in this article. There are links to many news articles published by scientific magazines and journals. There are also excellent reports on data-driven information by Jeffrey Jaxen.

Lord God,
Fear, misinformation, suppression of truth and distortion….These are tools used by the enemy to confuse and paralyze humanity. Lord, You are GREATER! Greater than any virus or vaccine! Nothing and no one is GREATER than YOU! When fear overwhelms, we need to renew our minds with the Truth of Your Word and Your faithfulness to ALL GENERATIONS!

Exodus 34:6 “ and He passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, the Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, and bounding in love and faithfulness,”
Deuteronomy 7:9, “Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to 1000 generations,”
Psalm 100:4-5 “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.”
Psalm 119:90 “Your faithfulness endures to all generations; You have establish the earth and it stands fast.“
2 Thess 3:3 “But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.”
Heb 10:23 “ Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who has promised is faithful.”

Just a few reminders from the UNCHANGING Word of God! This is where we need to go to find our hope! This is where we go to cast all fears down. The cross is where we find strength, mercy and grace for every moment. Thank You, Lord for providing all we need to give us the peace and assurance of Your faithfulness. You have been and always will be! Who was and who is and who is TO COME! Fixing our eyes on You for You are our everything! Praise be to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit! We love You! We praise You! In Jesus Name we pray!

This time and again reminds me of The Trial by Ordeal survived by Shadrak Meshak and Abnego in Daniel 3 14-17 ordered by King Nebuchadezzar. As if The Power of Prayer even as a quiet commitment within the heart must be sufficient to turn things around.

They say we are endangering them by not taking their injection. This is based on their “truth”, which is far from conclusive; and the whole world looks on at their blatant censorship and/or shaming of opposite opinions. They obviously have ulterior motives (are not interested in truth).

I am dumbfounded that so many Christians (including Franklin Graham), who are supposedly of superior judgment, are trusting them; especially given the fact that their version of “truth” also allows a person to arbitrarily choose their own gender, and then tries to force the rest of us (under penalty of law, in some cases) to participate in their lie.

But what if the truth is that this virus is part of the pestilences prophesied in the last days, which are addressed to those who practice abominations (and many professed Christians practice abominations)? In this case the ones who are endangering others are those who practice abominations. Of this number are those who impose irrelevant restrictions on the rest of us while piously looking down on those of us who pay the greater price to keep ourselves from our iniquity.

I am in a group that is said to be particularly susceptible to this virus, yet I’ve not had any issues. All I’ve done is pay some attention to distancing, and I’ve washed my hands a little more frequently. But I have also been very careful to keep myself from my iniquity, much more careful than most Christians I know.

I wonder what regret the people of Egypt had when they listened to their High Priests of Medicine and Science instead of the Spokesman for YahWeh- God of Israel- Moses. The very Plagues that were sent, could have been a wake up call to depend on God, and not on Man. Oops!
