God right from time has always had in place a covenant of exemption for His people who dare to believe in Him and take a stand on his word. This is why the three Hebrew boys could be thrown inside the fire and yet did not felt the burning effect of the fire! With a covenant mentality, we can walk in the covenant of exemption which says our circumstances may be the same but our experiences are different. Hence in Genesis 26 even though there was a famine in the land, Isaac sowed in that same land and reap a hundredfold, it was the same circumstance but different experiences, same situation but different manifestations! How many in the church still carry the covenant mentality to walk in the light of this truth?
Isaiah 60:2 says,
||| For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee |||
There is a covenant 'but' that exempts us from every hurt!
Hallelujah! Darkness may cover the earth and gross darkness the people, but for those of us with a strong covenant mentality of exemption, we will not experience what the world is experiencing! Isn't this the reason why the writer of Job says "when men say there is a casting I will say there is a lifting up"! These are what men say, but we are not ordinary men, we are gods! We have been made unto our God, kings, and priests and we will reign on the earth(John 10:34-35, 1 Peter 2:9)!
There is a covenant 'but' that exempts us from every hurt!. Psalm 91: 5-7 is another example of how the circumstances around us do not define our experiences. And then in verse seven, it says,
||| A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come to nigh thee |||
These are not scriptures to be quoted but to stake our lives upon knowing fully well that heaven and earth may pass away but a jot of God's word won't go unfulfilled! However we are in the days where there are more Christians than there are believers, our faith is not just a confession, it is a profession, for the just shall LIVE BY HIS FAITH! We are in the days of the profession of our faith, standing by and living by what you believe, but sadly today, only a few are even ready to say this is what they believe!
Where is the covenant of exemption when the hope of the world is the hope of the church? A certain vaccine? Why do I need a vaccination when I have the communion? Where is the efficacy of the blood of Jesus compared to that of the fetus and other animals as said to contained in the vaccine, and as we will prove if this is true or not?
There were lots of comments in response to the last post and someone from the western world who read the last blog post praise the argument for faith and believes everyone should live by their faith. However, he pointed out he would be taking the vaccine because he has had to experience covid-19. I thanked him for his response and asked if he knew what I knew about the vaccine would he still take it?
Herein lies the crux of the matter, many are ready to put their bodies on the line for what they know little or nothing about. One of the characteristics of this information age is that the abundance of information has only made people more information lazy, it's ironical but nonetheless the truth! There is so much information to feed on that people ain't feeding on any! So I will help us by pointing out one or two facts on the vaccine in every installment of this post.
VACCINES ARE NOT CURE
Vaccines by technology, function, and purpose are never created or intended as a cure for any virus in the world and this is not just for the covid19 virus, but any other kind of virus. Vaccines are created to prevent infection and the rate at which they do this varies from vaccine to vaccine.
Some people are mistaken that vaccines are the cure, they are not. The goal of vaccination is to get your body to build immunity against the infection you are been vaccinated against. As for covid 19, other medical personnel and researchers have claimed to have found other cures for the covid 19. Among such claim is that of Remdelsvir and the Chloroquine. Here in Africa, Madagascar lay claim to such drugs been discovered but the WHO claims there are not enough clinical trials to determine if they are effective or not and so were shut down. It was the same way the chloroquine argument was shut down One would have expected the same kind of standard for vaccines too, that enough clinical trials were done before they were administered, but that is not the case here as you would see.
Standard knowledge says that it will take years for a vaccine to be developed, sometimes as much as ten years because of the three stages of clinical trials that need to be done. Phase 3 of the clinical trials always involves a lot of people in the testing over a long period to determine the long term effect of this vaccine on the human body and yet in just under one year this vaccine of which the likes of Dr. Fauci, Bill Gates, expressed doubts of been produced in two years are already available! Well, many supporters of this vaccine argued that it is because of the new version of the vaccine called an mRNA that the vaccine could be produced in such a short time. But even for an mRNA vaccine clinical trial for it will still take years. We will come to an mRNA vaccine later, but the point here is that if other cures for covid 19 are dismissed because they lack enough clinical trials, it's the same way this new vaccine should be set aside too until when tested for a long period, however, the same standard is not been upheld here.
Two things we have seen here about the covid 19 vaccines:
***They are no cure for the virus but meant to build immunity for the virus, our bodies can also build this immunity, though big pharmaceuticals will tell you the immunity from our body can't be depended upon, that's the only way they will sell these vaccines
***Secondly, these vaccines haven't been tested long enough! I will talk more about this in a subsequent blog post. But I go back to the first point, vaccines are created to prevent infections and so if we take the covid-19 vaccines the goal should be to protect against infection with covid-19 that is the basic expectation. However, the Surgeon General of the United States just said that having the vaccine doesn't guarantee that you won't still have the infection.
Here is what he said, quoting from the Daily mail:
||| Surgeon General Jerome Adams said on Monday morning that people still had to wear masks and socially distant once they are vaccinated against COVID-19 because they can still pass on the virus. Speaking on Good Morning America, Adams urged caution and said people would still 'need to be careful' into much of next year. The vaccine was finally approved by the FDA last week after weeks of deliberation. While it has been proven to be 94% effective in preventing severe illness from the virus, it has not yet been proven to be a full-proof means of preventing infection. More study needs to be done before that can be known for certain, Adams said |||
Bill Gates in his interview on CNN said specifically we have to still be on lockdown till 2022/23 and continue to wear our masks as the vaccination is no guarantee you won't get infected with the virus or you won't pass the infection to others. So if this will not be achieved why do I need to take the vaccine then?
Other medical experts have their say on this as well. I will quote some lines from a med page where experts talked about this.
||| "I think people's perception is you get the vaccine and you're safe and finally we can stop all this masking and social distancing and stuff, but that's not reality," Debra Goff, an infectious-disease pharmacist, and professor at the Ohio State University, told Insider's, Anna Medaris Miller. The reality is we don't yet know whether the vaccine protects people from contracting and spreading COVID-19 or if it just keeps them from getting noticeably ill. What's more, even if the vaccine does protect you from getting the virus, it won't be fully effective until after the second dose — about a month after the first shot. So, in the meantime, 'for the good of your fellow mankind, you need to continue to wear that mask,' and maintain physical distance from others, Goff said" |||
Now, this is clear enough for anyone to see, all of this has not been proven yet, they don't know yet, more studies need to be done, these are all the things the so-called experts are saying. And like we pointed out, enough tests have not been done to prove the long term effectiveness and safety of this! This vaccination is an experiment on humanity and those who want to be the guinea pigs for this experimental trial on humanity can gladly put forth their body for the first jab of Pfizer or Moderna shots of the vaccine! This is the truth and nothing but the truth!
These vaccines are not proven though, but something else is more proven, seven times proven and it is the word of God! There is a more sure word of prophecy that we can bank our lives upon, and that is if you have experienced the gospel through a personal walk and work with the word and not through what your pastor has said. When you work with the word and the word works for you no one can tell you otherwise, not even your pastor! That's why it doesn't matter how many pastors, big pastors, will endorse the coming vaccine that will make me change my mind: this vaccine is not proven, but the word of God is proven, settled, more sure to guarantee that no plague will come to nigh my dwelling! This is the challenge for many of us, to experience God ourselves, if we do this then we can have more believers going forward. I will continue next time!
||| We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts ||| 2 Peter 1:19
