Globally governments continue to implement restrictive measures under the guise of fighting a life-threatening global pandemic.  However, it is clearly evident that the beast system is waging war as it seeks to enslave and kill humanity through government dictates.
In France, President Macron’s government is restricting the movement of the unvaccinated by only allowing the immune to go to bars, restaurants and cafes. Additionally, France has mandated that all health care workers be vaccinated by the 15th September 2021, after which checks will be made, and sanctions applied. In addition to the above draconian measures, France is implementing Covid Passports from 1st August and is seeking the 100% vaccination of all French persons.
The move by the French government to vaccinate all health care workers, as I have already reported, is also being implemented in the UK by the end of this year. However, to mandate workers to take trial vaccinations, ones that have only been granted temporary licenses during the pandemic, goes against the Management of Health and Safety at Work Act 1999, the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 section 2 & 4 and the Human Rights Act to mention just a few. Additionally, while the UK government states they will not push forward with the Covid pass, I believe this will be mandated as a means of monitoring and validating that people have had the vaccination.
So why are people silent in light of this? Why do they accept the new norm of the Huxleyan dictatorship? What is the church doing to warn people as it sounds the alarm of what is transpiring?
Sadly, through a lack of wisdom or discernment, most Christians have succumbed to the lies of the enemy – a path that will cost many their lives. As a result, many Christians now do not love the truth of God’s word but rather love the things of the world. Their hope is not in God but science and governments. Consequently, their love for the things of God has all but gone and only true repentance can revive the church from its deadly slumber and prevent such believers from being vomited out of Messiah’s mouth.
The question Messiah asked when teaching His disciples seems to be so applicable for today:
“Will the Son of Man find faith on the earth when he comes?” 
While I believe there will be many people who will have faith in God when Messiah returns, we also know that many will reject Him. That many believers will walk away from their faith and thus reject God’s free gift of salvation.
Matthews gospel ends with the Great Commission in which we read:
Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:16-20
Note how even when the disciples saw Messiah, some doubted. Today there is so much doubt, so much confusion about what is transpiring. However, regardless of what you believe, it is impossible to deny that we live in unprecedented times. A period that is deeply in need of the Gospel of Jesus – Yeshua the Messiah. Furthermore, we can not deny that the battle for the souls of humanity has intensified. So, what should our response be?
WHAT SHOULD CHRISTIANS DO?
First, we – the Body of Messiah need to humble ourselves before God, turn away from sin and focus on the LORD as we cry out to God with repentant hearts. Then God will come and heal our land, just as scripture states:
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
It is time for the people of God to repent, to turn away from sin so that God can come and heal the land. That means Messiah, the Prince of Peace, will come and bring restoration as He restores all creation back unto God; change can only come through the LORD.
However, true repentance does not mean, say your sorry and then continue with the same old. Instead, it requires you to desist from sinning, which sin is the transgression of our loving Fathers instructions, then turn back to God as you walk humbly before Him, working out our salvation in fear and trepidation.
If we seek to overcome and endure until Messiah’s return, then we must draw near to God and repent. We must confess our sins and commit to following Messiah’s example, for that is the instruction Messiah gave His disciples. To go make disciples and teach them to obey everything He- Jesus – had commanded them. Thus, believers are to walk in the footsteps of Jesus as they seek to emulate His life.
The problem today is that many believers want salvation on their terms. How arrogant is that, that people think they can save themselves, or that they show partiality to the instructions of our loving Father, instead of submitting their all to Him?
I believe the LORD is looking and calling people to be radical believers – people who will hear the word and do it – Shema. They will not question it but instead will surrender their lives to the LORD and commit to walking in accordance with the word of God, without compromise. To walk in such a way is how we overcome the schemes of the devil.
They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. Revelation 12:11
Thus, I urge you to examine your walk with God. If you do not know Him, then commit to finding out who God is. If you are a believer, I encourage you to ensure that you are walking right with God and are attending a Bible-based fellowship. If you don’t know of one, then please email me, and I will help – email@example.com
Since the beginning of the pandemic, I have been warning people, as a watchman, that vaccinations would be imposed. That we would see a medical martial law and subsequent medical apartheid, all of which is coming to pass. I have encouraged people to make practical preparations for hard times, but the priority has always been to be spiritually ready.
HARD TIMES ARE HERE
The need to make ready spiritually is intensifying, as is the need to make physical preparations. However, if you merely prepare physically, you may prolong your life, but if you do not put your life in order with God, then your eternal soul is doomed to go into the lake of fire. Therefore, what preparations you have made are futile unless you surrender your life to God and making Jesus your Lord and Saviour. Additionally, believers who think all they need to do is prepare physically without conducting a spiritual audit of their lives are deceived and conceited.
Hard times are not around the corner; they are here – people will soon lose their jobs because they refuse to adhere to the dictates of the emerging antichrist system.
Humanity has set itself against God. They have turned away from His loving instructions and, therefore, will face God’s judgment – a judgment that starts in the house of God. However, as God judges the evil of this perverse and ungodly world, He will also pour out His blessings upon those who diligently seek Him. Therefore, while there is still time, please ensure your house is in order – do not put it off for another day. Time is running out.
The world needs the truth of God’s word, but sadly most of the church is, at best, asleep and, at worst, dead. However, praise God, He is moving amongst those who are not ashamed of the Gospel. Believers who have not bowed to political correctness; rather, they have committed to sounding the alarm to warn people and preach the Good News of Jesus Christ. The question is, where do you stand before God?
May God bless us and save us!
