I pray all is well. So what does it take to follow Jesus and not the masses. (Saint Luke 9:23-27) 23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.
27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God. (KJV)
Saint Luke 9: 57-62 57 And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
58 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
59 And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.
61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.
62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. (KJV)
This Pandemic has taught me a huge lesson. Man has no right to dictate how I worship God, and their conditions are tyrannical. Jesus once said Saint Mark 12:17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's. And they marveled at him. The Government forcing churches to make their parishioners wear masks. The Government is violating on how I worship God, I don't worship them, only God. So is it fair to assume that going to Church I'm rendering God what is his? So here is a question to the wicked who enforces these unjust laws, if I take off my mask to receive holy communion, then what good was it wearing it all? Hypocrisy, the things that make no sense, the things that do follow real science, the made up versions of science. I don't want my church to be shutdown so, I must submit to the wicked on wearing the masks?
Vaccine persecution is on the rise, and it seems my body is my choice only refers to a small segment of society. I chose to resist and will continue to voice my opposition to what I believe to be the precursor to the MARK mentioned in Revelations 13:16-17. Now this is only my opinion and no it's not the mark due to certain elements, I have to make this clear. We are being conditioned into compliance and submitting to the wicked, not me I resist!
The things I'm doing to follow Christ: This moment forward I deny secularism, I deny all false teachings and false prophets. I deny all materialism this moment forward, material items mean nothing and prove nothing. I deny all Mainstream media as well as Fox News, it's all lies. I deny all Government mandates no matter the level, if they do not have common sense then it's doomed to fail. I deny all public education and educators this moment forward. I can no longer support these elements when they teach our kids critical race theory, they failed our children in the eyes of God. I deny all Government establishments they no longer follow the Constitution, or rights come from God. This moment forward I deny the old me, and I gain the new me in Christ.
I will surely take up my cross and follow him, and I will strive to be better. I will continue helping the poor and less unfortunate. I will practice peace not violence, I will strive to end all unjust wars, no longer support them. I will do for others, and less for myself because giving is more important then receiving. The only thing I want to receive this moment forward is my redemption through Christ. I chose a life of resistance to those who seek to destroy my religious liberties, but will pray for those who do this. For now I chose a life of love and compassion, and with discipline and understanding.
To follow Christ one must give up a lot but what we receive in the end out weighs the earthly blessings. Everyone have a an outstanding day be safe and praise him! Like always "Things meant to be, will always find their way." I'm sharing a Song by Chris Daughtry "Heavy Is The Crown...Listen to the lyrics...
