Vaccine not mark of the beast

There are no books that has been abused to justify cruelity, evil and inhuman behavior than the holy books of Christendom and Islam; The Bible and The Qu’ran.

About six years ago, I read a quote by some character called Sir Murdering Misguided False Knight Teabing claiming, “As long as there has been one true god, there has been killing in his name.”

I sought to find the truth in this statement and discovered that since The Crusades, there have been over 195 million deaths in the name of religion.

Strange how the two foremost religions preach of peace, love and harmony and yet they have waged the most wars and caused the most deaths all over the world, all in the name of religion.

As if the wars were not enough, charlatans pretending to be prophets or divine figures have led people to detrimental actions and death through mass suicides all in the name of religion.

We have the 1844 Great Disappointment led by one farmer turned Baptist preacher William Miller to the Jim Jones Jonestown Massacre which led to the death of over 900 people through mass suicide.

Of recent note is the Coronavirus pandemic and how again the Bible has been abused by these later day prophets and papas to deceive the gullible faithful.

They have sworn to have divine messages from the heavens to discourage congregates from taking the Covid-19 vaccination.

 

Their resistance stems from their reading of Revelation 13 that refers to Mark of the Beast and they are interpreting the vaccination as a mark of the beast.

Conspiracy theories about the scriptures have been around for a long time.

From bar-codes, bankcards, cellphones to much more have all been accused of being mark of the beasts. The earliest forms of vaccines for the earliest pandemics at the turn of the 20th century were all resisted in the name of scripture and being mark of the beast.

The scripture quoted from Chapter 13 verses 15 to 18 reads :

“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

A great many interpretations have been thrown around but the simplest is this is all religious and is about God’s Commandments mostly centring on Sabbath worship.

What most Christians are not aware of is that, the change of day of worship was actually a deliberate man-propounded action seeking not to ‘Judaize’ as was claimed back then. The Holocaust was not the first massacre against Jews nor is it the only one in recorded history.

The massacre of Jews started way back from the time of Senacherib the Assyrian to Nebuchadnezzar all the way to Alexander the Great to the time of the Roman Emperors.

Early Christians were Jews and as such were disliked generally and persecuted. As more and more people accepted Christianity however, there were edicts to change the day of worship. The Council of Laodicea states in Canon 29: “Christians must not judaize by resting on the Sabbath, but must work on that day, rather honouring the Lord’s Day; and, if they can, resting then as Christians. But if any shall be found to be judaizers, let them be anathema from Christ.”

The beast referred to in the prophecy in Revelation 13 is merely Catholicism or universalism of the faith deviating it away from the original pure faith.

It is argued that present day Christian activities and worship mixes elements of paganism and Christ’s teaching to come up with church pageantry as exercised in many churches both new age and traditional alike.

Mark of the Beast is Sunday worship not a vaccine or chip. Some will receive it willingly as symbolized by the mark on the forehead and therefore meaning acceptance of the mind and soul and by faith.

Many a Christian fall under this category. Then we have others that shall receive it out of fear (by the hand ). It is clear, God always says by a strong and mighty hand, I brought my people out of Egypt.

This was after the ten plagues which were fearful to the Egyptian.

A cursory study of history will show that The Catholic Church held sway over church and secular matters for over a thousand years in Europe. This power ended when Berthier in charge of the French army entered Italy, invaded the Vatican, organized the Roman Republic, and took Pope Pius VI prisoner who later died after relocation to Valence. That is the wound on the beast.

The wound was healed when the papal government was restored, and another head created to the Catholic Church, as has been shown. Pius VII was elected in 1800.

His palace and temporal dominion were restored, and every prerogative except that of a systematic persecutor, was again under his control; and thus the wound was healed.

In the Old World, the papacy received homage and in the New World, the papacy receives homage in the honour paid to the Sunday institution, that rests solely upon the authority of the Roman Church. Every country has a papal Nuncio and most have ambassadors to the Vatican or Rome.

This is the story of Mark of the Beast not the untruths about vaccines that we have been bombarded by the untutored church leaders who strangely pretend to speak directly with God.

How God has not shown them the message as revealed to John the Revelator is strange. One would have thought that God as the revealer of the original message would have clarified it to his ‘prophets’

People must learn to read the Bible on their own not to be misled into losing their lives and riches to lazy charlatans pretending to be God’s viceregents.

One wonders what the real reaction will be given that now Government has said churches may open to vaccinated congregants.
