I Prayed have prayed
Dear Lord, train us to turn first to You for direction in all matters, including our health. Lead us in the way we should go. Forgive us for yielding to fear or to the loudest voices in our culture. Forgive us for any self-reliance or hardness of heart. Change us so that we are trained to turn first to You our Great Physician for the healing path. Help us discern Your direction in the peace we feel or the revelation we receive. May we be known as people who rely first and fully upon You for any choices we face. In Christ’s Name. Amen and amen.

By now you probably have an opinion on getting a vaccine for the prevention of COVID-19. Getting to that opinion has not been easy for many of us given the conflicting reports about the disease, the vaccines, and the various governmental and corporate responses to this pandemic. But there is a way to cut through the babble and get to the truth for you and your family.

To step back a bit, I admit the swirl related to COVID-19 threw me for a loop. Our faith community, like many others in the United States, had been warned through the word of an intercessor as early as February 2020, which got us on our knees straight away. But I wasn’t prepared for the fear that I — and many in the American Church in general — felt at times.

This fear lay on me in early 2020 until the Lord called to my remembrance a missions trip that my husband Rich, who is a drama evangelist, and I made to Spain many years ago. The local missionary who picked us up at the Madrid airport warned us at great length about the pickpockets who preyed upon tourists. Rich and I became almost paranoid scanning the crowds for predators until I suddenly remembered, “Hey, what am I so worried about! We live in Manhattan! We know how to deal with dicey street situations!” Our contact was used to visitors from smaller U.S. towns who may not be sufficiently vigilant in cities. Remembering this moment helped me handle the pandemic fear: “Hey, what am I so worried about? I live in the Kingdom. The Lord’s got me!”

The Great Physician or The Government Physician?

But the overall fear that captured America has been life-altering. The many different effects of this fear have been well documented, including — but not limited to — the submission of the Church to onerous lockdown and worship restrictions. But one effect I noted early on was what I will call “the sliding of allegiance” in the matter of our health from The Great Physician to the government physician. This was most evident when the vaccine options became available. The long lockdowns had set people, including Believers, up for panic; and the media climate was fearmongering, to say the least. People who typically might be more cautious about experimental medicines were rushing to make appointments for their first dose of the vaccine.

The entire situation reminded me of Judah’s King Asa, whose story is told in 1 Kings 15 and in 2 Chronicles 14-16. In brief, Asa was one of the kings who started out well, ripping idolatry out of his land. But there was a weakness; some high places for idol worship remained. Perhaps it was this influence that led Asa — in a moment of national crisis — to turn to a human deliverer rather than relying on the Lord. When confronted by Hanani for this misplaced allegiance, instead of repenting for failing to confer with the Lord, Asa was angered.  He took vengeance on the prophet and turned against some of his own people. 2 Chronicles 16:12 reports: In the thirty-ninth year of his reign Asa was diseased in his feet, and his disease became severe. Yet even in his disease he did not seek the Lord but sought help from physicians. (ESV)

Please do not misunderstand me. I am not against medical solutions or vaccines in general — although I am against forcing people to take them, and I have reservations about certain aspects of the COVID-19 vaccines. King Asa’s sin lay in his lack of reliance upon the Lord as evidenced by failing to confer first with Him in the matter of a national crisis. Asa sinned further when he refused to repent when confronted. And as the verse above indicates, Asa’s heart became hardened to the point that he didn’t seek the Lord for his physical healing, either.

Fear Hijacks

I’m not sure if it was a lack of faith I was observing as 2020 unfolded, but I do know fear appeared to hijack Believers across America. It was a bizarre reaction, I thought, because many of these very Believers greatly admire the martyrs of the Faith and know well that in this world, we have troubles. But when push came to pandemic, fear and an almost unthinking submission to it seemed to blind them. I began to discern that many were not even asking the Lord whether they should get a COVID-19 vaccine; and if so, which one.

I had learned early on to consult first with The Great Physician. In 2000, I had noticed a strangely tender spot on my skin and had been praying for the Lord’s wisdom on it. When I mentioned this tenderness to my physician he told me he thought it was linked to my spine. That was the beginning of a process that culminated in a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). My first reaction was to pray: “What do You want for my healing, Lord?” Like most Believers with a serious health diagnosis, I have prayed for miraculous healing, but to this point the Lord has chosen medical healing for me. And he has carefully husbanded the medicine I’ve taken to prevent exacerbation of the condition.


At one point, my insurance company was refusing to pay for the branded version of the daily injection I take, so I defaulted to the generic. But a couple of days into that medical regime, the Lord sent me a dream that I tested and found true. In this dream, it was clear that the generic medicine would react with my body to cause brain cancer. So I stopped taking that drug and fought to take the brand name. The Lord secured that medicine and has used it for my healing. At this point, I have been in remission with MS since the diagnosis — 21 years! Praise the Lord!

Does the Lord use medicine? For sure! As the One who knows our bodies intimately, He knows best — far better than any earthly physician — how medicines will affect us. Psalm 139: 13-16 (ESV) affirms this truth:

For you formed my inward parts;

you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. 

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Wonderful are your works;

my soul knows it very well.

My frame was not hidden from you,

when I was being made in secret,

intricately woven in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes saw my unformed substance;

in your book were written, every one of them,

the days that were formed for me,

when as yet there was none of them.

The fact that our Lord is so solicitous of our physical being should be a point of great praise and comfort for us; It helps me to know that He not only cares for us, but He is able to cut through the noise of fear and clamoring voices to make known His will for this earthly tabernacle that is my body.

These reflections lead me back to my original musings. Is the question “To Vax or Not to Vax?” Or is it: “What is Your choice for me in this matter, Lord?”

Share your prayer to the Great Physician below, in the comments!

The following needs are plaguing me;prayer is appreciated,- I need minor but crucial surgery,in a personal area.
Hearing in my right ear departed at least 70%,in either Jan or Feb.( I forgot) of 2018-I think the ear problem is related to my balance problem,(physical balance),and 30 years of IBS that resulted in hernia surgery,which the whole mess has resulted in me having to use a” medication”, that allows me to “function”..so it causes me to be.. basically, be chained to the”water closet”,.so even if I were employed, it wouldn’t be for very long having to constantly be running to the “facilities”.Not having vehicle in southern California exasperates it all. Wearing a mask for an employer anyway is unacceptable.
I can no longer trust the medical community, as stories come in daily( just today I saw one on American Media Periscope about a 70 year old man taken in by his daughter for infirmities,.. and first thing,..as soon as they checked him out.. “You’ve Got Covid,,”!! Immediately they forced a ventilator ,which kills people- and denied family contact- and were very aggressive and rude to the family ,who had just come off of no sleep day and night for days preceding the visit in caring for the father,..so they were not able to be on their best mental responsiveness, on top of it all..)
We could pray for them as well

1). It is not at all necessary. There are multiple natural cures, among those being Vitamins, D, C, and zinc, also in combination dosages- not ot mention HCQ, and ivermectin
2) it is NOT A VACCINE. It is IRRESPONSIBLE FOR ANY MEDIA/PLATFORM TO KEEP USING THAT TERM. It is an experimental gene therapy. There is a huge difference. If platforms are going to stand for truth, then they need to stand for truth.
3) we are the point in history, just like WWII, Nazi Germany, where standing for truth and being in obedience to the Lord’s word as Christians is going to cost great sacrifice,, even our lives, families, and fortunes.

*Just like the founding fathers.*

4) if I have to give my life, I would not think the path being chosen by my allowing a toxic substance to be injected into my body ,thereby causing death,.. would be the choice, but would all of us not much rather stand for the cross of Christ in civil disobedience and face execution,.. like, say, Peter.. who was willing to be crucified upside down for His Savior..?
5) on today’s Thursday prayer video ,Eric Metaxas shares our History for His book ,Bonhoeffer- the subject being the great evangelist in WWII who gave his life in standing for freedom. Remember that the German citizens in that situation who were scared and gave in to the Nazi’s, allowed their churches to be controlled in only preaching a false gospel as approved by the Nazi’s, and also co-signed the deaths of millions of their fellow Jews and other German citizens. THEY REGRETTED THAT FOR THE REMAINDER OF THEIR LIVES

If an experimental herbecide were available to prevent weeds, but we had no weeds, and it was known to occasionally damage grass, practiacally no one would spray their healthy yard… That’s why I do not want my family taking the jab.

August 11, 2021

Some people don’t feel comfortable telling people not to get the vaccine, I DON’T have a problem telling you DO NOT TAKE ANY VACCINE EVER in LIFE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would not hesitate to tell someone not to jump off a bridge so I will not hesitate to tell someone not to take a poison. They are ALL poison to the body that GOD made and He alone knows how to keep us! Too much trust has been put in the medical field, remember it was not too long ago that doctors used to do blood letting and give arsenic to treat people so we can conclude they get it wrong a lot and sometimes people do horrible things to others on purpose too. Man’s wisdom is foolishness to God! We have to be bold to tell the truth, we follow the ONE who IS the TRUTH and He told us DO NOT FEAR! He also told us the enemy is a LIAR, THIEF, and MURDERER! God WILL NOT tolerate His creation being destroyed through poison “medication/preventatives” genetic altering, or bioweapons! They are trying to destroy the human genome through tampering with the DNA of plants, animals, and people! Don’t fall prey to the enemies lies and deceptions! God is truth and life, trust Him and He WILL sustain you! Holy Spirit come flood the Body of Christ with boldness and FIRE so we WILL do what You have placed us here to do at this time in Your timeline! It is not time for the final seven but for YOUR GLORY and Jesus’ harvest! Send out more workers to bring it in, help each of us do our part Daddy God. Shut down ALL of these abominations Lord and protect and cleanse Your people and YOUR DNA for DNA BELONGS to YOU, You made it so we need You to sustain it, in the Name above all names Jesus Christ, AMEN!!

Thank you, Joyce for your perspective!

My initial response way back in Feb/March 2020 was fear, avoidance, hiding, and all that… (fortunately, I do not have TV, so was not inundated by The Narrative).

But, within a few days, the Holy Spirit reminded me that HE had not given me this spirit of fear, but instead, He had given me a spirit of power and of love and of a sound mind. My sound mind told me this was just a virus – granted, one we didn’t know much about – and we’ve had viruses for millennia. They’re all around us, all the time.

In addition, both physically and spiritually, when we are healthy, we tend to be protected from the ill effects of harm (and, as Christians, even if we are harmed, even unto death, that fear of death has no power over us: we have been crucified with Christ, and no longer live in our own strength, anyhow). So, somewhat shaking in my boots, I stepped out in faith, without fear of the virus (nearly 100% of folks who got it have recovered well), and not the slightest inclination to consider a “vaccine” (which has an unusually poor safety record – as others here have pointed out).

I am 83, and through counsel first learned of on Christian radio, my health is exponentially better than it was 20-25 years ago, thank God! He has numbered my days. Fear of Him is the beginning of wisdom, but the fear of man is a snare.

If I were younger and had a job that was requiring the “vaccine”, I’d probably still be somewhat shaking in my boots in saying NO, but, by the grace of God, I would trust His promise that He is my Provider, that He has never seen the righteous begging bread, that wisdom is more precious than gold (and He will always give wisdom when we ask), and that He, alone, is The Way (where there seems to be no way, as we used to sing). As we are frequently reminded throughout the Bible “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him as righteousness.”

Trust God! He is faithful!

I pray, in the name of Jesus, that the spirit of fear, deception and division, would lift off of America and Americans. I pray for families, who have been estranged, due to the fear and lies, to be brought together and back to You, Lord. I pray that deceivers, in high places in government and the medical field, be exposed and defeated! Your perfect will be done, Father.

My husband and I are 74 and have not felt the need to take the vaccine. Early in the pandemic, my husband did a lot of research and listened to a number of doctors about it. One thing that has no been mentioned here is that taking at least 2000 UI of Vit D3 will keep one from getting this virus. We have been talking that daily. I wear the mask where I’m required to do so, not that I think it will protect me but out of respect to those around me who may feel that I may be contagious. There are also many medicines that are effective against the virus. That being said, I completely agree with those comments here that urge us to look to the LORD for our protection. We must pray and seek His leading as to what we are to do. I don’t believe we should be unloving to those who are disagree with us. Jesus wants us to show love towards everyone, even those who we don’t agree with.

Father in Heaven Hallowed be they name. You are Jehovah Rapha, Jehova Jireh, Jehovah Shalom and the Great I am. I pray that you would help us to be continually lead and guided by your word and your Holy Spirit. I pray for Spiritual Awaking in our Nation from the President to the Vice President and down. I bind the plans and schemes of the enemy and I pray that the truth to be revealed to us. Forgive us for the times we have fear and unbelief. Help us as a church and a people to be the City on the Hill you are calling us to be. Help us to walk in love and to respect each other whether we choose to get vaccinated or not. Help us to spread the good news that Jesus is the Way, The Truth and the Life and that God so loved the world that He gave His Only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him will not perish. Help us to Spread the Good news of Salvation and the fact that your Holy Spirit is willing and available to help believers to walk with Christ daily and is willing to direct us as we turn to him. Please spare us and pour out your Holy Spirit. Please heal those families that have lost loved ones to Covid and those that are currently struggling in our hospitals and cities. Send your ministers Spirits Lord. Help us as a people to continue to stand. Prepare us for your soon return and give us the wisdom, discernment, truth and help we need in Jesus name

The J & J vaccine is the only one forth considering. It’s a ‘Viral Vector’ type that provides adequate protection with just one jab. The two others- Pfizer & Moderna are a ‘witches brew’ of hidden ingredients that include aborted fetal RNA, graphene poison, and some nano components that along with the dead RNA can cause serious genetic compromise! It’s even worse but I am reluctant to share at this point, other than to say very many of fully vaxxed people are getting very ill with the same symptoms as reported for the ‘unvaxxed’, but even worse- as if on steroids.

Listen to this Immunology Doctor, a specialist with many years of experience that is exposing the truth- [from Sebastian Gorka’s tweeter feed]. “More COVID facts the CDC & Biden Administration doesn’t want you to hear.” https://t.co/WRaLZtqC0f (https://twitter.com/SebGorka/status/1424603849952829442?s=03).

For some good information about the vaccine and treatment options of COVID I’ve found the web site flemingmethod.com very helpful. Also Dr. Tenpenny has some good resources as well.

Knowing just the fact that aborted baby’s cells are used in vaccines seems like the most important issue to God. Taking vaccines means more babies have to be aborted, and no believer can justify that.

Given the season and the times we are in, it is imperative that the Body of Christ not make critical, crucial and possible life-altering decision based on past behaviors or circumstances but truly discern what the Holy Spirit says. There has been plenty of information and research dispensed by reputable Christians on this ‘vaccine’ that has been censored but if one will press through, they will be able to read and rely on the gift that God has given us to maneuver during this time. We have an enemy who truly wants to destroy us and if we are willing to trust what the world says or does, or even put our welfare in their hands and simply ‘go along to get along’, we will easily be destroyed and our witness snuffed out.

Father God, let those who are willing to hear and follow your voice, clearly hear you and the voice of no other (media, family, government, satan) will they heed. Let them wake up and discern the times. May Holy Spirit direct, correct, instruct and perfect them, and their actions. May we not be so easily deceived as those in the world. For your Word says that my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge so Father God, break though those barriers that would hinder the flow of information but more importantly open the ears and eyes of your children to receive that knowledge. In Jesus Name. Amen.

ALL of the vaxes were developed with embryonic stem cells from ABORTED babies! Only two do not have them in the final product. Not a conspiracy. Its been verified. Anyone who thinks they are “choosing life or death” has drunk the kool-aid. Father God, Emmanuel, Jehova Rapha blessed me for the day I arrived here and HE alone has decided the date/time/how/why I will depart.

August 10, 2021

Sure. Everyone has the right to ‘vax or not to vax’. Similarly, everyone has the right to choose life or death. If getting sick is their choice, why go to the hospital? Common sense issue. God has many resources that He uses to make people well. He uses doctors, medicines, operations, etc. as His agents. Yes, HE IS THE HEALER and all the glory belongs to Him. Jesus healed a blind man with His spit and some dirt. He healed some by just placing his hands on them. He healed by just speaking. He healed a woman with a blood issue by allowing her to touch the hem of his garment. What? He is God and nothing is impossible for Him.

August 10, 2021

I still believe in leaning on the Great Physician, not the government physician. We should follow the Holy Spirit’s guidance. And living by faith, not fear. Living by fear is Not from God. When we worry and fear, are we really trusting God to provide for our needs and to deliver us from harm??

I realize many Christians have taken the vaccine for various reasons. I believe we should be praying over our friends, relatives and Christians who have received this “ginger ale” that “when they drink [or ingest] deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all.” Mark 16:18. But … Don’t take the “ginger ale”! Prophetic dream…. https://hisinheritance.org/2021/05/04/pink-mousse-ginger-ale-2021/

August 10, 2021

Many voices are chiming in here and I thought I’d provide at least another perspective as it is always wise to have a multitude of counselors. Follow the Holy Spirit’s guidance. Though no longer the same organization, this is from the original “parent” ministry of the young-earth creationist organization, Answers in Genesis (Ken Ham, Creation Museum, The Ark Encounter. They have other resources related directly to the Covid vaccines, but this one is updated most frequently with current statistics, etc. https://creation.com/cmi-vaccination

August 10, 2021

As always, I am encouraged by the statements made
in faith by the IFA intercessors and their prayers.
I did not have to ask the Lord about whether or not
to take the “vax”. He spoke to me very calmly and
quietly that I was not to take it. He had always
done this with the flu shot. But, I did not know
that this fake thing would divide my family and
leave me pretty much all alone to stand on what I
know is God’s will for me. Faith is the assurance,
confirmation and title deed of what we hope for.
How great is our faith, if it is all laid out for us
and we have via our own understanding given merit to
it? God’s basic principle is that one of us
(his children) has a great necessity and that He (our
Father) has the provision for it and has given us His
Word on it; thereby, giving us the right to claim His
position on it. He is always a God of mercy and loving
kindness and He doesn’t lie or steal from us, but on the
contrary, every good and perfect gift comes from Him.
In this time of great peril and difficulty, we need to
hear His voice. That loss would be to me more devastating
than death! I pray for His wisdom and His mercy,
in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.

No, I will not take the shot. This whole thing has been a scam. President Trump should have fired Dr. Fauci and adopted the Great Barrington Declaration (google it) which would have quarantined the sick, the elderly, and others with compromised immunity. Then the economy wouldn’t have collapsed and people wouldn’t have committed suicide out of their despair. I stand upon God’s Word – “There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.” (Psalm 91:10) I don’t believe He was kidding! The only inoculation anyone needs is the Blood of Christ!

Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body [a]and in your spirit, which are God’s. I cor 6:19-20
“Because we have these promises, dear friends, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that can defile our body or spirit. And let us work toward complete holiness because we fear God.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭7:1‬
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:1-2‬ ‭

Thank you for the article.

I have been aware of this virus from Wuhan since Jan 2020 and done much research on the virus origin and impact, though I am not a virologist. I was initially pleased that the US was developing a vaccine under the previous admin leadership. When the vaccine was announced, I researched the virus contents as much as I could since I am allergic to many vaccine additives, and I typically wait to take any vaccine until I know the contents and see if any side effects happen to others.

After researching both the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA contents and function, I decided I would not take either of those because past research on mRNA vaccines have not proven to be safe, e.g., the ones that were attempted for the SAR outbreak several years ago. One reason was the animal test study portion. Various species were injected with the vaccine and were fine until exposed to the virus in the wild. All the animals died. The original mRNA SAR vaccines were never approved for use and thankfully the SAR outbreak did not advance. But they were used generally as the basis for the SAR-Covid-19 vaccine development. This has been reported by many virologists, immunologists, scientists and researchers, some who have worked in vaccine development. Unfortunately this issue has become politicized and good information is not always allowed now by our mainstream or social media if it is not considered politically correct.

The mRNA vaccine uses a polyethylene glycol lipid layer to encase the mRNA so that it easily enters the nucleus of the cell. It instructs the cell’s DNA to create the spike protein. This spike protein exits the cell and spreads over much if not all of the body. Original vaccination intent was to remain in the arm muscle and travel to the nearest lymph node and distribute there for immunity. Some vaccine adverse event deaths in autopsy have shown the spike protein travels at least in some patients to their entire body. The spike proteins adhere to the epithelial cell lining and can cause plaques and clots.

So I was excited that there was another choice in the J&J vaccine. I researched the J&J one shot vaccine and learned it is an adenovirus vaccine that basically just injects you directly with the spike protein. When the vaccine was stopped temporarily due to blood clot formation in patients, I decided then that the good Lord had intervened to show me not to take it either.

I believe that most vaccines are a gift to us for our health. But so many adverse issues surround these SAR-COV-19 vaccines, I lean toward not taking them. In analysis, first follow the money. The pharma companies have no legal liability for the vaccines they produced. They cannot be held accountable, so no motivation not to proceed even with adverse reactions. Secondly in analysis, look at the alternative messaging apart from the main stream media. On the CDC website there is the Vaccine Adverse Event Reaction Site. Currently it lists upwards of 12,000 deaths due to these vaccines, and several hundred thousand adverse reactions including blood clots, paralysis, stroke, Bells Palsy, and others. In the European system, these numbers are much larger due mostly to the Astra Zeneca vaccine. Even at the CDC, not all employees have taken the vaccines (and have been protected by their director from federal mandates). So why is our government pushing this vaccine so hard on US citizens and not on illegal immigrants coming across our border if they are truly concerned about health? Their voice and actions do not match up.

It appears on the surface that the majority of those who have taken the vaccine have some level of immunity. But now we know that they can still be infected with covid and also spread the virus, though most with milder symptoms. However, the long term effects of this vaccine is not yet known. We may see (and may have already seen) deaths due to heart inflammation, heart attack, blood clots and stroke, directly related to these vaccines’ spike proteins, over the next months and years. We may learn that it is the spike protein in the vaccinated individual that is mutating to survive and becoming more virulent and being spread to others, including the unvaccinated. In any case, it appears that the best defense is a strong immune system or antibodies developed after a covid infection.

“Study to show yourself approved unto God, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” My concern is that my decision not be based on arrogance or lack of faith in Gods’ healing powers, but based on the best information I can find to make a responsible decision before Him.

    August 10, 2021

    Amen! Amen! Amen! Thank you B L for educating us! I knew in my heart that I will not be taking the vaccine because there was no Peace to that idea for me. “And Let the Peace of GOD rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body, and be ye thankful!” Yes saints, ask GOD about ALL things! If you do not hear a direct answer from HIM, do nothing until you hear from GOD! HE Will Answer! FATHER GOD please protect all of YOUR saints in JESUS Name! Let us ask,seek, and knock for direction from YOU and then let us obey no matter what in JESUS MIGHTY Name! Amen!

    TRUST in JESUS!!

    Vaccines are never for our health, they ALL contain murderer babies and plant and animal DNA too! There is no such thing as a safe vaccine and God did NOT give that idea! What God gives heals, it does not cause disabilities or sickness. They also contain MANY poisons like mercury. Go to daystar.tv/vaccines and PLEASE find the WHOLE TRUTH!!!! These new ones alter DNA and have tiny robots called nanobots too, this is about depopulation and transhumanism, yes some people are that evil.

I am a retired medical professional; I was in that profession for over 50 yrs. No new drug can be approved without extensive testing in all populations: i.e., women, men, asians, blacks, caucasions, children, etc. These are tests are done against a controlled population, which means, they do not get the drug. THIS HAS NOT BEEN DONE WITH ANY VACCINATION; it takes several years for this to happen, therefore the FDA has never approved any vaccine. NOT ONLY SHOULD WE NOT BE GIVING IN TO AN UNAPPROVED DRUG, BUT AS CITIZENS, WE HAVE RIGHTS TO REFUSE THESE. All of these things being said for our rights, I was very upset about the lockdowns, especially of our churches (this is when you really need God), over a virus that kills less that 1/2 of a % of the people who get it. When I attend mass I hear sermons on trusting the Lord: where is that trust now? The Lord gave us brains; he gave us a free will; we should use these to evaluate our situation and pray for guidance. I TRUST HIM. HE HAS KEPT ME HEALTHY FOR ALL MY LIFE (81 YRS). My husband contracted the disease in July of 2020, and his being a diabetic, it lasted for about 12 days; He recovered fully. I have never gotten the virus. I BELIEVE THE LORD HAS PROTECTED ME. HE IS THE GREAT HEALER. IF WE HAVE THE FAIR OF GRAIN OF MUSTARD SEED, WE CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS; WHY NOT BE PROTECTED OR HEALED FROM THE VIRUS. It saddens me to sit in a church and see all the people with masks; scared to death to die. GOD IS IN CHARGE OF DEATH, NOT THE VIRUS.

Yahweh, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob formed the inward parts of…..

WI-38 – aborted in Sweden in 1962 at 3 months gestation, her lungs extracted, wrapped in gauze, placed on ice and flown across the Atlantic to the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia to be minced and placed in a solution to replicate to become the first human cell line utilized in vaccines.

MRC-5 – aborted in London at 14 weeks gestation in 1966, his lungs extracted, wrapped in gauze, placed on ice and brought to the Medical Research Council to be minced, placed in a solution to replicate to become the next human cell line utilized in vaccines.

HEK293 – aborted in Amsterdam in 1973, her kidneys extracted and cells developed in the same way for the purposes of medical research – primarily cancer – because she uniquely contains 64 chromosomes when humans generally have 46. She has four copies of Chromosome 17. What genes are on Chromosome 17? She is now used in the development of vaccines.

PERc6 – aborted in Amsterdam at 18 weeks gestation in 1985, her eyeballs removed, and retinas minced then placed in a solution to develop this cell line for the purpose of medical research – and now utilized in vaccines.

And most recently Walvax2 – aborted in 2014 at 3 months gestation in a wet birth abortion (delivered in her placenta), her lungs extracted and minced to cause those cells to reproduce to develop a cell line for the purpose of medical research, specifically vaccine production.

Walvax2 became a cell line at the College of Life Sciences, Wuhan University in Wuhan, Hubei Province, PR China.

After more than two decades since I testified before Congress and raised concerns regarding the use of aborted fetal cell tissue in vaccines, and the affect on our health, I am grateful beyond measure that God is allowing us all to have this conversation. To first be made aware of what we are putting into our holy temple (1 Cor 6:19) and then to seek Him to determine if He would like us to place these children, or products made with these children, in our bodies.

I was concerned the ramifications on our physical health. Today, I am more concerned about what this does to our spiritual health.

Scientists love science. I love science – our bodies are fascinating universes to discover. What even one cell in our body can do is beyond amazing to me.

I love Yahweh more than science.

Scientists know how to take a strand of human DNA and determine what genes are present on each tiny chromosome. What are the results of the whole genomes of these four children we are injecting into the human race? Have they done those tests? Viruses have genes. Genes are smaller than viruses. Are all of the human genes used to develop these products completely removed in the manufacturing process?

We know some of the genes that are present in these human cell lines – and they are directly linked to cancer. I prayed to Yahweh and He helped me find that information.

Seek Him and live. Seek Him first and all these things will be added to you. He will show you deep and unsearchable things. He is bigger than Google, but regardless of blocks and censorship, He can help you find what you need to see.

Obey your Creator/creators and you will have a long life if He wills it. It is a promise found in the 5th commandment.

I am beyond grateful that since March of 2019 IFA has fearlessly addressed this topic and encouraged Christ followers to engage in this discussion – long before this became an issue for the average believer. You should be grateful too, especially if your pastor, priest or faith based teacher did not warn you.

They sounded an alarm more than a year before people realized that the new epicenter for Spiritual Warfare had been established in Wuhan, China – in addition to Philadelphia, London and Amsterdam.

None of the ways our Father heals us come with adverse health events or chronic disease as side effects, or death, as possibilities. He delivers us to life whether He chooses to allow us to continue through a health battle for a few more years on this planet or it is time to live with Him eternally – the answer is always…life. He has removed the sting of death for those who believe in His salvation and trust Him to know what is best for us.

Everyone who is a breathing soul on this planet has an appointed time with the death of their physical body. Everyone is appointed to die once. Your life choices can appear to influence when that happens, and the world is designed to help you feel in control of the situation, but it is our Father who gives and takes away your first and last breath – whether you believe in Him or not.

He alone determines how, when, where and from what circumstance you will die for His purposes. As sad as death can feel, He works all things together for good for those who are called according to His purpose – regardless of our feelings because His ways and thoughts are higher than our own.

He allowed these children to endure this assignment positioned between life and death – why? To help us wake up and realize how defiled we have actually become and to humble us and remove our evil, pointy fingers that we point at other people’s sins? To cause us to evaluate if taking a human life is acceptable in certain circumstances? To be part of the conversation and decide what we will choose this day for ourselves – life or death?

These children were elective abortions. Does that make it ok? Their cells had to be processed very quickly. Make no mistake that the abortionist and scientists were working in tandem, with intent. Especially in the 1960s when we still had rotary phones, secretaries and typed letters on onion skin paper with typewriters.

Our bodies are to be used as a living sacrifice to bring Him, and Him alone, glory as our Creator.

May these children whose cells are still living and replicating even today in jars sold on the internet for $500 a piece bring Him glory as the world grapples with what they have done to them and to defile His holy temple. May everyone injected with these children cry out in repentance and for mercy to be healed both physically and spiritually..and in the process come to know their true Creator and Father.

May all of those who are in positions of leadership within the Church and governments who were warned well before this current crisis seek His forgiveness and the forgiveness of their constituents and congregants.

And may we all forgive them, too.

    I understand not wanting to give your last name. I am wondering if your list of aborted cell lines could be used as a basis for a Religious Exemption request from taking a covid-19 vaccine. Can you send me some formalized documentation or a link (perhaps from your testimony before Congress) with or without your name. The more documentation and justification we have the better chance our request has to be approved. It is part of our studying to show ourselves approved which God will honor. And many of us are now facing this challenge of attesting to a vaccine, having a valid Medical or Religious Exemption, or maybe, being allowed to stay employed without a vaccine card and mask and test weekly.

    Thank you.

    Thank you for posting this! I’m so thankful you are willing to tell the truth and since WE are followers of THE TRUTH we ought to WANT to KNOW it for the truth sets us FREE!! I stopped vaccinating my kids when I found out the truth about this garbage years ago and I repented for ever taking them. I’ve asked the Lord and trust that He has cleansed our bodies of these abominable poison shots. I don’t even want to get anymore pets because they won’t spay or neuter an animal without it being vaccinated which shows they are being bought by the industry because vaccines have NOTHING to do with animal reproduction. I’m tired of the medical industry holding this junk over our heads and trying to bully us into submission so they can get rich! They, meaning the ones controlling the system, in the medical industry couldn’t care less about our health and most people are too asleep to ask questions of why things are even being done this way. This is NOT of the Lord, when He gives medication it heals and that’s it!! I’m thankful these and all aborted babies are in Heaven! I prayed for God to let them know that we do love them and to give them a gift from us who care down here on Earth. It sickens me they number humans, well God HAS named them and loves them an He WILL be dealing with all of this horrific stuff very soon I believe!! May God have mercy on the souls of those on the wrong side and allow them to repent and turn to Jesus before they pass on so they don’t reap in eternity what they have sown!

    One other thing, we don’t understand the why’s of things happening but we do know God is Holy and only good. The enemy deceived the people into all of these awful acts and their (the children’s) destinies that God had prepared for them to live out on Earth were stolen from them and then their bodies desecrated. EVERY Christian should abhor these wicked acts! We MUST get into FULL agreement with our Daddy God, King Jesus, and Holy Spirit! We need You God to EXPOSE ALL the enemy has done in our midst and hold those accountable in the natural for the evils they have done but we pray mercy on their souls for You don’t want any to perish! In the MIGHY Name of Jesus, Amen!!

No inoculation for me! It is an experimental jab and there are now how many? Seriously people this was a planned pandemic of a mega NWO. I am suspect of the childhood vaccines as well. Are their aborted fetal parts in the vaccines of today? On Wednesday August 11th 2021 at noon your time is Walk Out Day to be short. Do your own research on the NWO agenda. Also look up Sidney Powell on defending the republic to find out more on the Walk Out Day.

    Yes, you are right, ALL vaccines have always been made with aborted babies, even in the 1930’s and contain other plant and animal DNA as well as poisons! They have always been an evil plot of the enemy! I have asked the Lord for forgiveness for taking previous vaccines and giving them to my kids when I did not know any better because of the brainwashing. Also I have asked Him to cleanse our blood and bodies of all that nastiness, you do the same if you’ve had any!! Praise God for giving us the TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

August 10, 2021

We all have to make our own decision prayerfully about receiving or not receiving this vaccine. Initially, I was dead-set against it. In light of information about how serious that this disease is, and with the fact that a new type of COV-ID , the Delta Variant, is infecting many Americans, I decided, after much prayer, to go ahead and get vaccinated. Being that I am 63 years old, it seemed like the right thing to do. We all have our own path to take with regards to the vaccine. I don’t think that there is any one right or wrong answer for everyone. We all need to prayerfully make our own decision.

    TRUST in JESUS!!
    August 11, 2021

    I hope you have not actually gotten it yet! They contain dead aborted babies and MANY poisons not to mention altering you God given DNA! God will NEVER be ok with that! Do NOT get ANYTHING out of fear, God will take care of you and He will take you home when He is ready for you and not one moment too soon when you trust in Him! They are LYING about this virus they created by the way, to manipulate people into taking a DNA altering agent that you would not take otherwise, remember the deception of the serpent to Eve in the garden!! The devil questioned the WORD OF GOD and God said DO NOT FEAR, I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU, NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST YOU WILL PROSPER! You are the TEMPLE of the HOLY SPIRIT, God wants you clean not contaminated! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT GET ANY VACCINE EVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love you and so does GOD!! TRUST HIM not man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CANCEL your appointment, and watch daystar.tv/vaccines If a Christian dies we go home to Jesus but if you take this vaccine and then find out that you have allowed the enemy to contaminate your DNA your heart will regret that decision!! The truth is out there because God is the God of TRUTH and HE has given it to us!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      August 11, 2021

      Thanks for sharing your concern. I am sorry, but I guess that we need to agree to disagree. That’s what is still great about America- everybody is entitled to their opinion.

        August 11, 2021

        Well put. I was unsure about taking the vaccine, but after having a close family member in in critical condition for weeks, and still recovering, I chose to take it. I am so thankful to God for giving scientists and doctors the intelligence to create vaccines for our well being. Everyone has to make their own decision, but as for me – I do not want to spend weeks in a hospital bed. May God build a hedge of protection around His children.

          August 11, 2021

          I understand. Once I realized that it wasn’t the Mark of the Beast, and the implications for not getting it, it made sense to me to get it. What the doctors and scientists did to create the vaccine really is not my responsibility. They will have to answer for themselves and their own behavior. Me, I just want to stay healthy, and avoid getting COV-ID. I firmly believe that the Lord will take me home when he is ready, irregardless of whether or not I get vaccinated.

        August 11, 2021

        Vaccines contain murdered babies so every Christian ought to care about that and if someone doesn’t then they should pray and ask God for His heart because He cares and we are to have the heart of Christ! Anyone who has taken a vaccine has a murdered human being’s DNA in them and the only thing that can remove that is the Blood of Jesus but you have to ask Him to forgive you for taking it and ask Him to cleanse your body of it. And NOT keep getting them. The Bible says “My people perish for LACK of knowledge” and claiming that it doesn’t matter how someone “made” something is not going to make it pass from the Lord’s eyes. No one can claim ignorant. If you know HIS LITTLE ONES are being used like this and then decide to take it anyway you are acting like what was done does not matter. I had to repent for taking vaccines earlier in life when I did not know and He has forgiven me but if you know what you ought to do and do it not then it is sin. I am not saying anything to you that I have not had to do myself so please don’t get offended. I believe we should do what Jesus would do and say what He’d say and there is NO WAY He would EVER take a vaccine or tell someone do what you want!!!!!!!! He says DO NOT SIN. He HATES murder and says anyone who harms a little one, it would be better for them to have a millstone hung around their neck and be thrown into the sea. Jesus does NOT mince words and He offended people with the truth all the time because He loves you too much to let you continue in deception! Ask Him to soften your heart about the babies killed in abortion whose destinies’ were literally torn from them and what the “medical” community does with their body parts and ask yourself if desecrating a human being made in the image of God is acceptable to HIM. All this is said with love and a desire to have ALL of the Body of Christ in alignment with Christ! HE IS OUR HEALER AND GREAT PHYSICIAN and NOT everything “doctors’ do is of the Lord!

      Please go find out what is in all vaccines! Then you will not say they came from the Lord. God would NEVER give man such an idea as that and you will understand that when you find out what is ACTUALLY in them!! He DOES NOT desecrate the bodies of His children or His creation. The devil tries to get people to think wrong things about God. How would you feel if someone said you poisoned someone you love? That would hurt your heart and it hurts His when people think that about Him. Seek truth and He shall fill you with it but your heart MUST be opened to be corrected because He WILL chasten those whom He loves and He loves you! He knows what’s in them and He is raising up the people who are telling the truth to set His people FREE from the LIES!!! I used to think a bunch of wrong things about God out of ignorance but He forgives you when you repent and seek TRUTH which He is! Be blessed in the TRUTH ONLY!! In Jesus Name!

From the very outset of this so called pandemic, the Word I received from the Lord has been ‘Faith will triumph over fear.’
I have followed in that Word and I have refused to give in to the pressure to get vaccinated.
I have been pressured by friends, the government, and the VA to get vaccinated.
The Word I have received is that the vaccine brings death. Death to faith as the Lord desires for us to make Him alone our refuge and our protection. (Psalm 27; Psalm 91; Psalm 121)
Keep on praying!

Wonderfully written with such powerful truths. I would add however the use of aborted fetal cells in the COVID vaccines is demonic. Every choice either contains aborted fetal cell line or an aborted fetal cell line with used to test it against. This further gives profit and gas to the abortion industry where babies and their organs are sold and bought on a black market most Americans never know about. As for one of the cell lines associated with a COVID vaccine:“So I isolated retina from a fetus, from a healthy fetus as far as could be seen, of 18 weeks old. There was nothing special with a family history or the pregnancy was completely normal up to the 18 weeks, and it turned out to be a socially indicated abortus – abortus provocatus, and that was simply because the woman wanted to get rid of the fetus.”

Such a wise and scriptural article! Thank you Joyce. The bottom line is always, “Lord, what do You say”. And we need so much grace for one another to honor what He is telling each of us. Lord,Your ways are not our ways. We honor You above all. We run to You, our refuge and stronghold, to the quiet place with You to hear Your voice. We will not harden our hearts. Speak, Lord, Your servants are listening.

Prayer/confession taken from the AMPC Bible….

Father, I have come to know that You are the Lord Who heals me. (Ex. 15:26) You do not lie. (Num. 23:19) You forgive all my iniquities and heal all my diseases. You redeem my life from destruction and crown me with loving kindness and tender mercies. You satisfy my mouth with good things so that my youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Ps. 103:3-5) You will not break Your covenant, nor change the things You have promised. (Ps. 89:34) You are alert and active, watching over Your Word to perform it, as I speak it out of my mouth.
(Jer. 1:12) The Word will not return to You without accomplishing its purpose. (Isa. 55:10-11) I receive healing from You because I watchfully obey Your commandments, follow Your plan for me, and habitually practice what is pleasing to You. (I John 3:22) You restore health to me and heal my wounds (Jer. 30:17) The affliction will not rise up a second time. (Nahum 1:9) My faith, trust, and confidence in Jesus has restored me to health. I will go in peace & be continually healed and freed from distressing bodily disease. (Mark 5:34) I am a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself. (Eph. 3:19) I overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony. (Rev. 12:11)
