UNCOVERING COVID — Part 4 — Don’t Believe the Hype

“If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.”

Mark Twain

In my first three editions in this series, I have presented the overwhelming evidence that the novel coronavirus — SARS CoV-2 — was genetically engineered to enhance human transmission through gain-of-function (GOF) research funded by none other than the National Institute of Health under the direction of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Ironically, Fauci also was designated the leading scientific “expert” and official mouthpiece for the medical response and treatment of Covid-19, as well as the extreme governmental protocols enforced on the American people. Fauci — a career bureaucrat in the Washington establishment — was appointed by President Trump and has remained as President Biden’s chief medical advisor on all things Covid-19.

The first case of Covid-19 reportedly emerged around December of 2019 in “patient zero” in Wuhan, China, and officially was declared a “pandemic” by the World Health Organization (WHO) in March of 2020. Before we could blink the entire world effectively was shut down. The planet pushed pause and the whole world stood still for the first time in modern history.

It happened so fast. Our lives changed overnight.

And that’s my point. Maybe it all happened a little “too” fast. Almost like it was expected … coordinated. What if this was a predetermined, “Global” plan that had been in the works for quite some time?

Sounds conspiratorial but rings very true.


Interestingly, we’ve had similar coronavirus “pandemics” in the recent past. The SARS outbreak in 2003 and the MERS in 2012 both gained initial “traction,” but they were largely ignored by the international community and died out quickly — both in perceived threat and funding. So the pharmaceutical companies and their biomedical partners had to create countermeasures to overcome these barriers and ensure more sustainable outcomes.

To sustain the funding base beyond the crisis, he said, we need to increase public understanding of the need for MCMs such as a pan-influenza or pan-coronavirus vaccine. A key driver is the media, and the economics follow the hype. We need to use that hype to our advantage to get to the real issues. Investors will respond if they see profit at the end of process, Daszak stated.

December 2014 - THE POINT

As you can clearly see, EcoHealth — which is a private subsidiary of the NIH — understood the missing component. We need more hype! A louder voice gets more attention. A bigger platform gets more credibility. A powerful medium captures the most minds.

But most importantly, a wider audience gives you more potential customers, and more customers means more investors and more money. It’s a rather brilliant marketing strategy. Create a customer base of sick people in need of treatment, and then be the ones who offer the only “approved” treatment.

Make no mistake … It’s always been about the vaccine from the start. Fauci and the NIH have been saying this for years. It’s just that now they have the biggest platform and loudest voice and the world is falling blindly in line.

Don’t underestimate the power of the mainstream media and its ability to control the narrative, censor the truth, and manipulate the masses with theatric rituals of social conditioning. The multi-media enterprise literally is a clown show in bizarro world where up is down and left is right and right is wrong and good is bad and truth is relevant and science is god.

There is no surprise the media moguls are among the most diversified, wealthiest, and most powerful people in the world.

CIA Controls Mass Media like The NY Times, Time Magazine ...
[Power of the Major Media Conglomerates]

Considering the hype of this “novel” coronavirus spread and infected the masses exponentially faster than the virus itself, let me ask a simple question.

Do you believe the hype?


Event 201 - Naturally occurring or planned?

In October of 2019, just a few months before a new coronavirus “pandemic,” an elite group of influential leaders gathered at the Pierre Hotel in New York to conduct a scripted exercise. It was called EVENT 201.

EVENT 201 was “a 3.5-hour pandemic tabletop exercise that simulated a series of dramatic, scenario-based facilitated discussions … to a hypothetical, but scientifically plausible, pandemic.” Using real-life “PLAYERS” who all are substantially connected and invested in the biomedical sector, EVENT 201 literally scripted the Covid-19 outbreak down to the details.

For starters, consider the scenario.

SCENARIO — “Event 201 simulates an outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic. The pathogen and the disease it causes are modeled largely on SARS, but it is more transmissible in the community setting by people with mild symptoms.

This isn’t some secret conspiracy. These people have been publicly saying this for years and have been planning for this event. They aren’t trying to hide it. The brazen nature of these elite globalists is perhaps most disturbing.

There are no coincidences. That’s my point.

So who participated in EVENT 201? The exact same organizations that are leading the way in mass marketing, data manipulation, social engineering, governmental policy, medical protocol, media output and global networking in response to the Covid-19 crisis.

Here is just a sample size of what I mean.

  • Deputy Director of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
  • Chief of staff for a major media mogul
  • Global Development Director of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
  • Chinese virologist and Director of the Chinese Centers of Disease
  • Product and Brand Marketing experts
  • Senior VP of Johnson & Johnson with emphasis inoculation programs
  • CIA and National Security Adviser
  • World Economic Forum
  • World Health Organization (WHO)
  • United Nations Liaison


So let me break it all down.

The reason the global Covid-19 response was so abrupt and aggressive and practically seamless in execution is because this plan has been in the works for decades, has been rehearsed repeatedly, and is now being executed before our very eyes.

All the hype behind the Covid-19 crisis was both coordinated and coerced through a powerful network of very wealthy people, who now have the audacity to insist that they are the only ones who have the answer.

Only problem is … there are still many who don’t believe the hype, those who rise above the noise and the mindless chatter, who think for themselves, who see this plandemic and its “countermeasures” for what they are — a good excuse for an extreme global takeover and great reset.

Don’t believe the hype! Do your own research. Don’t stop praying for wisdom and always to speak the truth in love.

And you better dig in … We haven’t even scratched the surface.

UNCOVERING COVID — Part 3 — The Genetic Engineering of SARS CoV-2

“Is it really conspiracy if it is true?”

Since writing my last post about the origin of Sars Cov-2 a few days ago, another bombshell report has been released proving that Dr. Anthony Fauci is a serial liar and is almost certainly responsible — either directly or indirectly — for the creation of this deadly virus that has killed millions around the world.

According to over 900 pages of new documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, The Intercept reported this week that Fauci was keenly aware of the gain-of-function research taking place at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, where the virus first emerged. Under Fauci’s own direction, the genetic manipulation of bat coronaviruses for human transmissibility was being sponsored and funded by American tax payer dollars through third-party grants of the NIH (National Instituted of Health).

Once again, this is becoming perhaps the greatest scandal in American history, and I can only hope and pray that the truth will be revealed and justice served to Fauci and his network of cronies who are responsible for creating a global crisis of immense proportions.

Only a true narcissist and sociopath can create a disaster and then tell you that he is the only one who can save you from it.


10 things to know about genetic engineering - Engineers ...

In this edition, I will demonstrate that many qualified, scientific experts have been sounding the alarm from the beginning about the unnatural genetic design of SARS CoV-2. Ironically, Fauci himself was warned all the way back in January of 2020 that this novel virus looked “genetically engineered.”

Months before the World Health Organization declared Covid-19 a “pandemic,” Fauci participated in an email exchange with American virologist Kristian Andersen and British philanthropist Sir Jeremy Farrar, in which Andersen showed concern that this novel virus appeared genetically altered.

Fauci's email with Kristian Andersen and Sir Jeremy Farrar.

Although the science said SARS CoV-2 contained features that do not naturally occur in nature, Fauci ferociously downplayed any possibility of genetic manipulation and continued to push the “natural origin” theory to the public.

Now we know why. Fauci was the mastermind behind the gain-of-function research to begin with.

Kusuma School of Biological Sciences in IIT Delhi, India

At the very same time Fauci was being warned about the unique genetic footprint of SARS Cov-2, an research team in Delhi, India, independently came to the very same conclusion. On January 31, 2020, Indian scientist published their study onto the open source portal, bioRxiv, which concluded that the genetic sequencing of SARS CoV-2 appeared to be engineered in what they called “unconventional evolution.”

The Indian research team had found that the spike glycoprotein (S) of SARS-CoV-2 had four distinct genetic insertions which are not found in any other natural coronavirus. Furthermore, these insertions are eerily similar to those found in HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), which causes AIDS. Their findings raised enough questions to suggest the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 may have been bio-engineered using an existing coronavirus and HIV in order to make the novel virus more transmissible to humans.

According to the researchers, such matches of proteins in both SARS-CoV-2 and HIV-1 viruses can’t be random. They also say that as the segments were not there in the same virus found in bats or all other forms of Coronavirus, it is very startling, as it is quite unlikely for a virus to have acquired such unique changes naturally in a short duration of time.

[SOURCE — OpIndia — June 4, 2021]

These findings, of course, destroyed the mainstream narrative being propagated throughout the medical community, and after immediate pushback, the team was forced to withdraw their study from the public domain. The scientists, however, stand behind their study to this day, despite being targeted and ostracized by the research community.

Ashutosh Kumar Pandey, one of the researchers of the study, commented on his Twitter account in May of this year that they stand by their conclusion that the SARS-CoV-2 is not natural. “We said this in Jan 2020, we are saying it again”, he had tweeted.

The paper was outlandish for those who wanted to prove the ‘natural origin’ theory for the virus and was withdrawn due to the pressure from the people with vested interests. The revised manuscripts were hard-blocked by the publishers and never allowed to come out … Science is the new medieval church, those who are popes of it censor at their will.

Nobel Prize Scientist Luc Montagnier

French scientist Luc Montagnier — who was awarded the Nobel Prize in 2008 for his role in discovering HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) — also believes that SARS Cov-2 has been genetically altered for human transmission. Interestingly, Montagnier also confirms that this novel coronavirus has been engineered using part of the genetic sequencing of HIV. Considering he discovered HIV, it seems like he might qualify as an expert on the subject.

You can watch one of Montagnier’s interviews here.

There’s a part which is obviously the classic virus, and there’s another mainly coming from the bat, but that part has added sequences, particularly from HIV – the AIDS virus.

Dr. Francis Boyle

What You Should Know About Biological Warfare | 1950s ...

Dr. Francis Boyle is a professor of international law at the University of Illinois and is considered an expert on biological warfare. Boyle drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989 that was approved unanimously by both Houses of the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President George H.W. Bush.

Boyle was one of the earliest voices to suggest that SARS CoV-2 was genetically engineered as a “bio weapon” to enhance human-to-human transmissibility. Boyle has made reference to a study published in the peer-reviewed journal in Science Direct — Antiviral Research (Vol. 16, April 2020) — that confirms the purposed design of the novel coronavirus ideal for human infection.

But this was a genetic– as you know, that was withdrawn under political pressure. But now we have four very distinguished life scientists here. Yes, that’s it right there. And the smoking gun here is on page 11, near the bottom, the last full paragraph from the bottom where it says, “may provide a gain of function to coronavirus for efficient spreading in the human population” … This is clearly a weaponized biological warfare agent and there is no legitimate scientific or medical use for gain of function technology.

[SOURCE — Dr. Francis Boyle — February, 2020]

Dr. Steven Quay and Richard Muller

Dr. Steven Quay — founder of Atossa Therapeutics — and Dr. Richard Muller — former lead scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory — published their findings in an editorial for the Wall Street Journal.

Quay and Muller discovered that the genetic sequencing of SARS CoV-2 was optimally designed for human transmissibility and lethality, citing that it contains the most commonly used double sequence in gain-of-function research, which is [CGG-CGG]. The pair noted that the double CGG sequence has never been found naturally among the entire group of coronaviruses that includes CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, and yet it was found in SARS CoV-2, which they called a “damning fact.”

Proponents of zoonotic origin must explain why the novel coronavirus, when it mutated or recombined, happened to pick its least favorite combination, the double CGG … At the minimum, this fact — that the coronavirus, with all its random possibilities, took the rare and unnatural combination used by human researchers — implies that the leading theory for the origin of the coronavirus must be laboratory escape.

[SOURCE — Wall Street Journal — June 6, 2021]

As you can plainly see, there is substantial evidence that clearly demonstrates that the SARS Cov-2 virus that causes Covid-19 was genetically engineered to enhance human transmissibility through gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. This is not a conspiracy theory, as so many desperately have claimed.

NO! Quite the contrary.

This is an intentional catastrophe wrought by the hands of guilty men — like Anthony Fauci — who should be charged with crimes against humanity.

In my next post, I will begin to examine the unnecessary and extreme response of our medical and governing authorities that resulted in the lock down of the entire world for the very first time in history.

Stay tuned.

UNCOVERING COVID — Part 2 — The Origin of SARS CoV-2

A half truth is a whole lie.

A significant part of uncovering the truth about Covid-19 is determining its origin. Frankly, this is one of the most controversial and polarizing topics of debate among scientists and perhaps one of the most difficult tasks on this journey of discovery. After nearly two years, the genesis of this “novel” coronavirus is far from settled, although many theories abound.

The majority of “experts” trace the origin of SARS CoV-2 — the technical name for the virus that causes Covid-19 — to one of three possible scenarios.

  1. SARS CoV-2 is a natural mutation of the original SARS virus (severe acute respiratory syndrome) that was transmitted from an animal reservoir — such as a bat — to humans in the Wuhan province of China.
  2. SARS CoV-2 is a genetically engineered virus developed under gain-of-function (GOF) research before accidentally escaping the Wuhan Institute of Virology in late fall or winter of 2019.
  3. SARS CoV-2 is a genetically engineered virus developed under gain-of-function research and subsequently was released intentionally into the human population in Wuhan, China before spreading around the world.

Many well-respected, qualified scientists and doctors land on opposite sides of the aisle, creating mixed public perception about the origin of Covid-19. For sake of simplicity, I will assume that the timeframe and location of the first SARS CoV-2 case remains relatively settled — which is late fall or early winter of 2019 in Wuhan, China.

Everything else, however, is worth closer consideration.

Theory #1 — The Wuhan Wet Market Theory

China's 'wet markets' start selling bats, dogs again: Report
Bats being sold in an Asian wet market

The mainstream narrative circulated from health authorities and news outlets from the very beginning of the outbreak was that this novel coronavirus first emerged from a wet market in Wuhan, China, where bats are sold and consumed for food. Bats and other animals, such as pigs and cats, are known to be the primary carriers of coronaviruses. Hundreds, if not thousands, of coronaviruses exist in nature. Even the common cold is a classified in the coronavirus “family,” but at least three have “jumped” from animals to humans in the past few decades, causing more severe respiratory illness. These three are SARS (2002), MERS (2012) and SARS CoV-2 (2019).

The wet-market theory has not been proven and is based upon an assumption that SARS CoV-2 mutated naturally in an animal reservoir and then spread to its first human host in Wuhan, causing what we know as the Covid-19 pandemic. Even the Lancet Journal, which is one of the most respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world, released an article in September of 2020 that insisted that SARS CoV-2 originated in bats without the possibility of being genetically engineered.

The Lancet article was weak on data, however, and strong on presumption and speculation. Instead of providing adequate scientific findings, the Lancet article sounded more like a political propaganda piece written solely to discredit the possibility that SARS CoV-2 was genetically altered and released from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Still, there is one theory that can be dismissed,” author Talha Burki said in the Lancet, referring specifically to the lab-leak theory. And yet the article provides little to back up this foregone conclusion. Interestingly, the article goes on to make self-contradictory statements, using phrases like “almost certainly” and “highly unlikely.”

Besides, if you were going to create a coronavirus that can be transmitted by humans, you would almost certainly start with the first SARS virus. SARS-CoV-2 is like nothing we have seen before. It really is highly unlikely that someone created it; it is not put together from pieces we know about.

The Origin of SARS-CoV-2 — Lancet Journal, September 2020

Just listen to the language used in the quote above. This virus is like nothing we have seen before and is not put together from pieces we know about. That doesn’t sound much like a “naturally occurring” virus to me but rather leaves the door wide open for not just the possibility but the probability that the SARVS-CoV-2 virus was genetically engineered to enhance human transmission.

That is precisely why many highly-qualified doctors and virologists have shared scientific evidence that leads them to believe that this virus is not naturally occurring but rather is the result of genetic engineering through gain-of-function research.

Theory #2 — Genetic Engineering through Gain-of-Function Research

'Gain of function' research - JournalsOfIndia

This is where things get interesting. I will do my best to provide this information in a consumable portion size, but it will be challenging. I also will provide as many reference links as possible for readers to go to the sources and do their own follow-up research.

The basic theory is that the SARS CoV-2 virus is the result of genetic manipulation through specific gain-of-function (GOF) research that has been funded at least in part by grants through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and specifically Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Furthermore, tax-payer dollars have been funneled through these government agencies and third-party non-profits, such as EcoHealth Alliance, directly to the Wuhan Instituted of Virology for GOF research in China, where SARVS CoV-2 was introduced to the human population.

This scenario, at best, poses major ethical concerns and reveals a blatant conflict of professional interest with Dr. Fauci — the self-appointed arbiter of truth who has become the sole voice of scientific and medical authority on all things Covid-19 since its inception. At worst, this could be the greatest scandal in American history resulting in treasonous crimes against humanity.

Dr. Fauci said the research money went to respected Chinese scientists.
Dr. Anthony Fauci — Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infection Diseases

First I need to define gain-of-function research, which has been implemented by both private and government research agencies for decades. The following description comes from PubMed and the National Library of Medicine.

Gain-of-function (GOF) research involves experimentation that aims or is expected to (and/or, perhaps, actually does) increase the transmissibility and/or virulence of pathogens. Such research, when conducted by responsible scientists, usually aims to improve understanding of disease causing agents, their interaction with human hosts, and/or their potential to cause pandemics. The ultimate objective of such research is to better inform public health and preparedness efforts and/or development of medical countermeasures. Despite these important potential benefits, GOF research (GOFR) can pose risks regarding biosecurity and biosafety.

[PubMed — Gain of Function Research — August 2016]

So gain-of-function (GOF) research is predicated upon manipulating the genetic codes of viruses in order to create new — aka “novel” — viruses that both are more transmissible and detrimental to humans.

Just let that sink in for a minute.

Nothing could possibly go wrong here.

Gain-of-function research was deemed so risky, in fact, that the Obama administration placed a moratorium on GOF back in 2014, yet certain coronavirus projects were given exemptions under Fauci’s direction, who argued back in 2012 that the benefits of gain-of-function research outweigh the increased risk of a potential pandemic-causing lab accident.

Even President Biden himself said back in May that U.S. Intelligence officials are still investigating the possibility that Covid-19 originated from a leak at the Wuhan lab.

Follow the Money

It is no secret that Dr. Fauci and the NIAID have been in favor of GOF research for years, stating that his personal interest in GOF research was prompted by the initial SARS outbreak in 2002-03. The Pentagon alone has funneled money through EcoHealth Alliance at the tune of over $40 million since 2008 to fund threat assessment projects outside of the U.S. Judicial Watch has obtained verification from Fauci emails that “EcoHealth was allocated approximately $7.5 million over 11 years from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to carry out its study ‘Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence.’”

However, when high-ranking U.S. Congressman and medical doctor Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) began to press Fauci on his level of involvement in GOF research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Fauci vehemently denied all accusations and said that the NIAID or NIH had never awarded any grants to the Wuhan bio lab.

The documented evidence, however, was too overwhelming to deny, finally forcing Fauci to testify under oath to a House Appropriations subcommittee that a mere $600,000 in U.S. money was funneled to the Chinese lab through the non-profit EcoHealth Alliance to fund “a modest collaboration with very respectable Chinese scientists who were world experts on coronavirus” [New York Post — May, 25, 2021].

Fauci had been caught in a blatant lie, and one lie usually leads to another. After being less than honest about the amount of funding granted for research in Wuhan, Fauci doubled-down and insisted that none of these grants were used specifically for GOF research. Senator Paul, however, having gained access to Fauci’s private emails and other declassified information, provided substantial evidence that Fauci not only was lying about using taxpayer dollars to fund research at the Wuhan lab but also that he was lying about those funds being used directly for GOF research in China.

Paul, writing an op-ed in the National Review, accused Fauci of lying to Congress and the American people about his knowledge of GOF research at the Wuhan Institute.

Fact: Dr. Anthony Fauci, without a doubt, knew the National Institutes of Health (NIH) granted funds for gain-of-function research to the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab. It’s no secret that gain-of-function research has been deemed a controversial practice since its beginning. However, that hasn’t stopped the NIH from approving funding for it abroad and in the United States under Dr. Fauci’s watch.

[U.S. Senator Rand Paul — National Review, August 4, 2021]

For a more concise report on Fauci’s involvement in GOF research, you can watch Sean Hannity’s Fox News report here.

In conclusion, there is a growing consensus based on legitimate scientific evidence that the SARS CoV-2 virus was first genetically altered through GOF research using American taxpayer dollars at the direction of Dr. Fauci the National Institute of Health. Those facts alone should lead to an all-out criminal investigation of Dr. Fauci and his network of researchers. In the meantime, Dr. Fauci should immediately be thrown out of his ivory tower, removed from his pedestal, and stripped of his “authority” in providing medical advice and making policy decisions for the U.S. government.

In my next post, I will introduce you to many of the highly-qualified scientists, virologists, doctors, and experts who all concur that the genome sequence of SARS CoV-2 could not have originated by natural processes but rather was genetically engineered for efficiency.

Until then, feel free to read the following articles that support the lab-leak scenario.

UNCOVERING COVID — Part 1 — Seeking Truth on the Journey of Discovery

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”

Albert Einstein

Here we are nearly 20 months post Covid, and we find ourselves in an altogether new reality far from the world we once knew. Questions still abound and answers remain hard to find, and it appears that this new normal — which is anything but — is not going away any time soon.

To state the obvious, the last two years have been the most bizarre, confusing, divisive, frustrating, and life-altering experience in my lifetime — perhaps in all of human history. The global scale and international convergence of this “Covid crisis” is both unprecedented and untenable in scope and consequence. It’s almost like waking up from a bad dream only to realize you are still trapped in the dream.

Let’s be honest. It’s not like we have never faced viruses and deadly diseases before, and surely there will be more to come. Disease is an unfortunate but undeniable reality of the human condition in a fallen world, and pestilences will be around until the entire creation is set free from its bondage to corruption in the regeneration of all things (Romans 8:18-25).

I for one have had unrelenting questions from the beginning of this “crisis.” Why now? Why this virus? Why this response? Why this vaccine? Why these mandates? Why has virtually every nation in the world reacted in lockstep with such a hyper-aggressive, irrational response toward this particular virus? Is Covid-19, or Sars Cov-2, really so deadly that is constitutes the extreme measures being forced upon us? Are these protocols really for our health and safety or is another agenda at work?

Putting Things into Proper Perspective

One of the most obvious questions I have is this. Does Sars Cov-2 qualify as a pandemic? We have been socially conditioned to believe we are living through a pandemic and to call this a pandemic, but is it really a pandemic at all? Merriam-Webster defines a pandemic as “occurring over a wide geographic area (such as multiple countries or continents) and typically affecting a significant proportion of the population.”

So although this Covid-19 outbreak has certainly spread worldwide, has it really affected a “significant proportion of the population?” For perspective, let’s look at a few real pandemics from history.

COVID-19-Pandemic News

For example, the Black Plague of the 14th Century killed an estimated 25 million people, which was 1/3 (33%) of the European population at the time. The Spanish Flu (H1N1) pandemic of 1918 infected about 500 million people or one-third (33%) of the world’s population (1.7 billion at the time). The number of deaths contributed to the Spanish Flu was estimated to be at least 50 million worldwide, which means that Spanish Flu killed approximately 3% of the entire world population, which is quite substantial. [reference CDC here]

Now let’s compare those numbers to the Sars Cov-2 outbreak.

As of today, September 3, 2021, there have been an estimated 219 million confirmed cases and 4.5 million deaths of “Covid-19” worldwide. [reference BBC here]

With a world population of basically 8 billion people, that means that less than 3% (0.0275) of the entire world population has contracted Sars Cov-2 and a negligible percentage of the world population has died from this virus (0.00056). That means that 99.999% of the world has survived this novel covid virus. Even for those who contract Sars Cov-2, there is still a 98% overall survival rate. [* and those percentages are even lower if you believe that Covid-19 numbers both have been falsified and inflated using bogus protocols etc… We will discuss this later.]

Just to put things into perspective, if people were being infected and dying of Sars Cov-2 at the same rate of the 1918 Spanish Flu, then over 2.6 billion people would have been infected and over 240 million people would have died so far. Just let that sink in for a moment. Clearly we are no where near those numbers and frankly never will be.

These numbers alone answer the first obvious question. Is Covid-19 a real pandemic?


Sars Cov-2 does not qualify as a true pandemic by definition. Although this is a novel virus with real concerns, it is NOT so deadly and dangerous to justify the drastic totalitarian responses of the governments and health organizations of the world. It is NOT so deadly and dangerous to cause mass psychosis leading to irrational fear and social isolation.

Now consider what I just did by using the most basic statistics being reported by the official health organizations of the world. I simply brought some perspective to the mainstream narrative. I basically destroyed the notion that we are living through one of the worst pandemics in human history. As a matter of fact, I believe I have sufficiently proven that the Sars Cov-2 “outbreak” does not qualify as a pandemic at all, but rather should be considered a novel coronavirus that makes some people very sick — especially those with comorbidities — but in reality poses little to no danger to over 99% of the human population.

So why have we turned the world upside down and effectively lost our collective minds over a relatively innocuous disease?

These are the kinds of questions that I cannot put out of my mind. As a journalist by trade, I have always looked at reality through curious lenses, desiring to get to the heart of the matter and discover the truth, even if it is not popular.

In a time of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

— George Orwell

So I have determined to take a journey of personal discovery in an attempt to get to the truth behind this “Covid crisis,” even if this journey leads me to a conclusion that I am not ready to accept.

My goal is to take one topic and issue at a time and meticulously investigate the facts in order to discover the truth behind this unprecedented social experiment that is affecting us all. My aim is to break down this investigation into bite-sized portions both for consumption and clarity.

In my next post, I will do my best to discover the origin of Sars Cov-2, especially in regard to the evidence that this novel virus was genetically engineered through gain-of-function research and then released into the population.

So I hope you will join me in this journey of discovery and share these blog posts with friends and family, as we seek to find the truth together, and as our Lord Jesus says, the truth will set us free.

Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

[Galatians 5:1]

I can only name a few things in life that are worth dying for.

Protecting my loved ones, family and friends.

Defending the most vulnerable and innocent.

Bearing witness for my Lord Jesus Christ, who willingly died for me!

And finally, preserving my God-given freedom.

Freedom is our innate gift from Almighty God and essential for life itself. For a life that is not free is not life at all. Without freedom, I am unable to protect the ones I love, defend the weak, or speak the truth of the gospel. Without freedom, I all but cease to be human — becoming a beast of burden under the heavy yoke of slavery.

Anyone who has an appreciation for the freedom that has been bestowed upon this land can plainly see that a monumental shift is taking place in our nation. The steady and systematic grab for power has slowly eaten away at our individual freedoms, as we have traded our civil liberties for comfort, convenience, safety and security. How quickly we have been willing to give up the invaluable treasure of freedom to gain fleeting pleasures.

In one sense, the deterioration of the United States of America should not be a surprise. All great empires are born out of great sacrifice and courage, which then leads to an era of great prosperity and wealth. But inevitably, prosperity grows into entitlement and entitlement into complacency and complacency into apathy. Eventually, it is the apathy that allows power-hungry men to step in and assume control over the masses, enslaving them in the chains of their own indifference.

Before you know it, a once free nation has become a slave state. A once strong nation has become weak and vulnerable. Inevitably, all great nations rise and fall by following such a path, and America is not different.

The 'Declaration of Independence' Created a Country for ...

Consider how much has changed in America in just the past 20 years.

After the terrorist attacks of 9/11, the government convinced us that it was necessary to spy on its own people for counter-terrorism purposes. Ironically, this new “Patriot Act,” has been used for gross government overreach, surveillance, and invasion of privacy. Politicians will never waste a crisis, and 9/11 was the perfect scenario to justify taking away our freedom for the “greater good.”

Fast forward to the present Covid-19 crisis. Once again, the powers that be have taken full advantage of a fearful and confused population with massive power grabs and gross disregard for civil liberties.

We have seen unconstitutional executive orders shut down the economy and destroy small business.

We have seen health departments and federal health agencies become acting dictators, legislating from their self-appointed place of authority.

We have seen school boards and teacher’s unions deny children basic education and much needed social interaction.

We have seen both private companies and government agencies mandate experimental vaccinations upon their employees.

We have seen private businesses and entire cities impose vaccination passports likened to Nazi Germany and communist Russia, who were masters at creating sub-classes of citizens to maintain control over the “non-compliant.”

We have seen hospitals deny patients their basic human right of having family advocates by their side in their most difficult time of need.

And to top it all off, we have seen the most aggressive, systematic shut down of free speech in history, as Big Tech companies have appointed themselves as the arbiters of truth by censoring anything and everything they deem to be “false” or “misleading.” Only the information that fits the accepted social narrative is allowed. Just ask the citizens of China and North Korea how that has worked out for them.

Only God knows what freedoms they will come for next. Man’s lust for power knows no end. They are not going to stop unless we make them. It’s time we remind these self-serving bureaucrats that they serve us. Not the other way around! Somewhere along the way they have forgotten that because we have let them get away with it for so long. The government does not give us our rights. God does!

Having said all of this, I only have one question.

Where do we go from here?

Either the American people will wake up and stand up and speak out and fight for their constitutional and God-given freedoms, or soon America will no longer be free. That is an America not worth living in, not for me or my children.

As Thomas Paine said, “I prefer peace. But if trouble must come, let it come in my time, so that my children can live in peace.”

But like the generation of patriots that first stared in the face of tyranny and stood firm for this freedom, it will take tremendous faith and courage and sacrifice for our generation to reclaim what is rightfully ours. It will not be easy. It will not be comfortable. It may cost us more than we can imagine.

But in the end, it is worth it. Freedom is always worth fighting for! Whether that fight is at the voting polls, in the marketplace of ideas, or God forbid on the battlefield, it is fight that must be fought.

I will leave you with some famous words of a courageous patriot, Patrick Henry, who understood how essential freedom was to his generation. I pray that our generation will have the same courage to preserve our God-given rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave … Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

[Patrick Henry to the Virginia General Assembly — March 23, 1775]

2021 What to Watch For — Vaccine Passports — One Step Closer to Tyranny


The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever!

[Psalm 111:10]

The division in American society in real and palpable, and while I believe both mainstream and social media outlets thrive by stoking the fires of social unrest, it doesn’t take much to turn one group of people against another.

Whether real or perceived, however, American culture seems to be continually on edge because of white vs. black, blue vs. red, straight vs. gay, young vs. old, cops vs. chaos, male vs. female, “science” vs. religion. You get my point.

And as if that wasn’t enough, the wake of Covid-19 has created even more confusion and therefore division in our culture. We all have had to evaluate and navigate this unprecedented social crisis to the best of our ability, yet unfortunately it hasn’t been without consequence. Now the nation is further divided over healthcare, and it appears that the “new normal” is giving many people, including myself, cause for great concern.

Now the narrative has shifted to mask vs. no mask, open vs. closed, freedom vs. “safety,” vaccine vs. no vaccine, fear vs. reason, civil liberty vs. government overreach. And the list goes on.

As all career politicians know fully well, never waste a crisis. Politicians also know the power of fear and will always use it to their advantage. And unless you want to live in a state of delusion and believe that the majority of men in general — and politicians in particular — are altruistic and seek the benefit of others, then maybe it’s time to wake up and recognize that God-given liberty as we know it in America is on the verge of permanently being taken.

The socialists in control of America are taking a page right out of the old Nazi playbook to begin creating two classes of citizens in order to incentivize blind submission and marginalize everyone else. How are they doing this?

For starters, by implementing vaccine passports.


The Biden administration clearly has announced its plans to initiate a vaccine passport program in America that will force citizens to show proof of vaccination before returning to “normal” activities in society, such as boarding a plane, entering public venues, restaurants, sporting events, schools, or potentially even the office at work. These vaccine passports are processed on a smartphone app by scanning a digital QR code.

Several other countries, such as Israel, already have implemented such a program and the state of New York launched its vaccination passport system — Excelsior — just last week. The White House has said that it is working with companies in the private sector who will require said passport in order to resume business, and therefore a national, uniform vaccine passport is in order.

Of course, nothing could go wrong here.

Regardless of whether you are pro or anti-vaccine, this should terrify you as an American citizen. Americans have always had the choice to be vaccinated or not. That is not the debate. Even parents who were skeptical about vaccination protocols in the public school system have always had the option to homeschool their children.

The proposed vaccine passport program, however, is an entirely different issue altogether. By attempting to enforce vaccine passports for Americans to be able to operate in society, the government is creating two-classes of citizens by rewarding “good behavior” and marginalizing everyone else. In effect, the government is attempting to mandate vaccines without actually saying they are mandating vaccines.

Just consider what Dr. Leana Wen said just last week on CNN. It is a lengthy quote but worth reading because it summarizes how the left-wing, socialist mind works. Basically, let’s take away people’s God-given rights and freedoms in the name of a “crisis,” and then they will be grateful to the government when getting back just a taste of freedom.

We need to make it clear to them that the vaccine is the ticket back to pre-pandemic life. And the window to do that is really narrowing. You were mentioning about how all these states are reopening. They’re reopening at 100%. And we have a very narrow window to tie reopening policy to vaccination status. Because otherwise, if everything is reopened, then what’s the carrot going to be? How are we going to incentivize people to actually get the vaccine? So that’s why I think the CDC and Biden administration needs to come out a lot bolder and say, “If you are vaccinated, you can do all these things. Here are all these freedoms you have.” Because otherwise, people are going to go out and enjoy these freedoms anyway.

[see article here]

Surely I don’t have to translate. Dr. Leana speaks for the CDC, the World Health Organization, the World Economic Forum, and countless other power-hungry organizations that want to mandate vaccines or at least make life impossible for those who elect against vaccination. These people are deranged and truly believe that average citizens are too stupid to make individual decisions for themselves — such as personal healthcare. No, we apparently are too ignorant to exercise individual freedom so we need big Pharma and big government to tell us what to do, where to go and how to live.

Dr. Noami Wolf, on the other hand, recognizes the seriousness of this trend toward tyranny.

I am not overstating this. I can’t say it forcefully enough. This is literally the end of human liberty in the west if this plan unfolds as planned. Vaccine passports sound like a fine thing if you don’t understand what these platforms can do … It’s not about the vaccine. It’s not about the virus. It’s about your data. And once this rolls out you don’t have a choice about being part of the system. What people have to understand is that any other functionality can be loaded onto that platform with no problem at all. What that means is that it can be merged with your Paypal account, with your digital currency, Microsoft is already talking about merging it with payment plans. Your networks can be sucked up. It geolocates you wherever you go. Your credit history can be included. All of your medical history can be included.

[Dr. Naomi Wolf — Fox Interview — March 28, 2021]
ID2020 Announces Work Is Completed On First-Ever ...

Both England and Israel are calling their digital vaccine passport the “Green Pass,” while IBM and the World Economic Forum are calling it CommonPass. In the end, the goal is to create a global, digital ID system that can track and trace all human movement and activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week — not to mention streamlining all health, financial, and personal data. The digital ID system is being promoted as a necessary convenience in our ever advancing technological world, yet it wreaks of global tyranny and dystopian oppression.

Clearly the powers that be in America would love to create a two-tiered society in order to exercise total control of one group while socially oppress the other. Thankfully, we are seeing some states push back, which yet gives me hope that America is not yet given over fully to tyranny.


So far at least four states have passed legislation or executive orders that officially ban the gross overreach of vaccination passports. The elected officials in Florida, Utah, Texas and Idaho acknowledge the dangerous and slippery slope created by health passports and are leading the way in protecting their citizens. Hopefully we will see more states follow suit and act accordingly.

Until then, I encourage everyone to consider the drastic and unnecessary consequences that will come with mandatory vaccinations or vaccine passports. Again, this has nothing to do with whether or not you have decided to be vaccinated for Covid-19 or not. This is a much bigger issue — a civil liberties issue and a human rights issue.

Representative Pete Sessions (R-Texas) made sense when he said, “Vaccine credentials would be a complete government overstep. Individuals in America have a personal responsibility for their health.”

As long as I have the freedom to make informed decisions about my personal health and about what goes into my body, then I at least can trust who is making that decision. But the minute I give up that freedom and allow other people to make those decisions for me, then my God-given rights will be lost.

The Bible tells me that all men are sinful and the human heart is deceitful. History tells me that government leaders cannot be trusted to act for anyone but themselves. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. If we don’t stand up against these initial steps of tyranny then we have no one to blame but ourselves when our freedom is stripped away.

Choose wisely my friends.

2021 What to Watch For — The Experimental Covid-19 Vaccine

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.

[James 1:5]
Vials with a sticker reading, “COVID-19 / Coronavirus vaccine / Injection only” and a medical syringe are seen in front of a displayed Pfizer logo in this illustration taken October 31, 2020. REUTERS/Dado Ruvic/Illustration – RC2JUJ9E758P

As people wait in line to receive their Covid-19 vaccines, I cannot help but wonder if the American people have been educated and informed enough about how this untested, experimental mRNA delivery system works and furthermore if it is safe in the short-term or the long run.

Having a background in journalism and coming from a family of nurses, I feel as if it is my responsibility and obligation to gather and disseminate the information and facts that most people will not take the time to consider. Because we are dealing with complex technical and medical concepts, I will do my best to write in layman’s terms and also provide sources for deeper investigation.

These are the following reasons I am very skeptical and hesitant to trust this new, experimental “vaccine,” and frankly why you should be too.

Reason #1 — Experimental Covid-19 vaccines use a radically new mRNA delivery method

The first reason we should be very hesitant to trust these experimental Covid-19 vaccines is because many doctors and medical experts acknowledge that the developers from the major pharmaceutical companies are using unprecedented technology in the delivery mechanism of these “vaccines,” which is more accurately defined as gene therapy. One of the many doctors who have publicly addressed his concern is business ethicist and professor Dr. David Martin, Ph.D, who said in an interview last month that “mRNA is not a vaccination. It’s a gene therapy that was originally developed for cancer treatment.”

Traditional vaccine treatments introduce an attenuated or fragmented form of a live virus into your body, allowing our amazing God-given immune systems to recognize the virus and build natural immunities against it. This is how traditional vaccines help prevent future infection and transmission of said virus.

The mRNA gene treatment, however, works completely differently by actually integrating the synthetic mRNA delivery system with your cell wall and programming your cells to manufacture the harmful sars cov-2 spike protein.

“The problem is that in the case of Moderna and Pfizer, this is not a vaccine. This is gene therapy” … that sends “a strand of synthetic RNA into the human being and is invoking within the human being the creation of the S1 spike protein, which is a pathogen,” Martin said. “This is not only not keeping you from getting sick, it’s making your body produce the thing that makes you sick … A vaccine is supposed to trigger immunity. It’s not supposed to trigger you to make a toxin.”

[Dr. David Martin — Life Site Article — Jan 25, 2021]

Reason #2 — Experimental Covid-19 vaccines have been rushed to distribution without adequate testing

It’s one thing to use a synthetic mRNA delivery mechanism to manipulate the human genome and change our DNA. It’s another altogether to produce and mass distribute such a radical experimental vaccine in record time without proper trials and adequate testing.

Consider that on average it takes up to 10 years to develop, test, approve, and distribute a new vaccine. Big Pharma pushed the Covid-19 vaccine out in 10 MONTHS! Let that sink in just a minute. 10 MONTHS!

This may be the most alarming reason of all! It is impossible to know how these experimental gene therapies will affect our bodies in the short or long-term. To say that these trials were rushed and there is a lack of clinical studies backing them is the understatement of the year.

When the medical community is usually consistent on following protocol and taking their time on distributing new treatments, why has virtually everyone ignored the normal testing process with these experimental vaccines?

Reason #3 — Experimental Covid-19 vaccines already have produced short-term side effects and deaths

While it may take years to determine what the long-term side effects will be for these new, experimental gene therapies, there already have been reports of serious short-term side effects and deaths due to the “vaccine.”

For example, last month in Norway 23 people died after receiving this experimental vaccine, causing medical officials to question its safety.

Norway said Covid-19 vaccines may be too risky for the very old and terminally ill, the most cautious statement yet from a European health authority as countries assess the real-world side effects of the first shots to gain approval. Officials said 23 people had died in the country a short time after receiving their first dose of the vaccine.”

[Bloomberg article — Jan 15, 2021]

Considering that the elderly and immune compromised are in the highest risk category for Sars-CoV-2 deaths, it is concerning to see such adverse reactions within that age range. Over 99% of people under the age of 65 will naturally recover from SARS-CoV-2, which renders a vaccine unnecessary. Couple that with proven treatments for Covid-19 using safe and inexpensive drugs like hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin, many doctors have expressed their frustrations with the suppression and censorship in the medical community to disparage proven treatments that could have saved hundreds of thousands of lives.

Furthermore, almost all experimental covid vaccine trials have proven to be utter failures because of a unique adverse response in the body called antibody-dependent enhancement. Both animal and human trials for coronavirus since 2002 have proven to be fatal and most were abandoned.

Reason #4 — Experimental Covid vaccines most likely will not prevent future infection or transmission

Perhaps the most bizarre information coming from the medical community is that the experimental vaccines being mass distributed likely will NOT prevent future infection or transmission, which is why the likes of Dr. Anthony Fauci — White House chief medical officer — has been quoted as saying that mask mandates and social distancing will be necessarily moving forward.

In a New Year’s Day interview with Newsweek, Anthony Fauci, MD, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), reinforced the WHO’s admission that health officials do not know if COVID-19 vaccines prevent infection or if people can spread the virus to others after getting vaccinated.2 According to U.S. and WHO health officials, vaccinated persons still need to mask and social distance because they could be able to spread the new coronavirus to others without knowing it.”

[The Vaccine Reaction — Jan 3, 2021]

Are you serious?

Are we supposed to trust that an experimental gene therapy that literally integrates with our DNA and makes our bodies produce the toxic Covid-19 pathogen likely DOES NOT EVEN WORK?!!!

Isn’t that what a vaccine is supposed to do? Prevent infection and transmission?

And yet we are already being told that these radical treatments probably won’t work, so we will have to “mask-up” and social distance indefinitely!

You can’t make this stuff up.

Consider a quote from the horses mouth himself.

We do not know if the vaccines that prevent clinical disease also prevent infection. They very well might, but we have not proven that yet….That’s the reason I keep saying that even though you get vaccinated, we should not eliminate, at all, public health measures like wearing masks because we don’t know yet what the effect [of the vaccine] is on transmissibility.”

[Dr. Anthony Fauci — Newsweek Interview — Jan 1, 2021]

So we are expected to get an experimental vaccine that may not even work and that will have God-knows what kind of long-term side effects?

Not to mention the fact that variant mutative strains of SARS-CoV-2 have already been identified in the States, which means as covid mutates and builds resistance like all viruses, this particular experimental vaccine will be rendered useless against the new strains.

Reason #5 — Experimental Covid vaccines are being used to push mandated vaccination passports

Maybe the most troubling result of this strategic social experiment is the obvious attempt by Big Pharma and Big Government to restrict our freedoms and even infringe on our basic human rights. The likes of Bill Gates and Tony Blair have been pushing global vaccination passports that will be required before anyone can “safely” and effectively travel and operate in society in the future.

This obviously creates a serious human rights issue, as we are likely to see both private business and government agencies mandate proof of covid-19 vaccination before allowing individuals the right to re-enter society. Nothing screams Orwellian nightmare quite like mandatory vaccination passports.

Eventually, what we’ll have to have is certificates of who is a recovered person, who’s a vaccinated person, because you don’t want people moving around the world where you’ll have some countries that won’t have it under control, sadly. You don’t want to completely block off the ability for people to go there and come back and move around.”

[Bill Gates TED talk — March 2020]

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is pressuring Great Britain to lead the way in the upcoming G7 Summit by pushing for a mandated universal, digital vaccine passport in order to resume world travel.

Tony Blair (r) and Bill Gates at Davos

Mr Blair said the passport should be digital and capable of tracking and verifying an individual’s coronavirus “status” wherever they travel in the world. Included would be details of any vaccination they had, together with the results of Covid-19 test results. Governments could access data at borders by scanning a QR code, rather than working through reams of paper certificates which might be vulnerable to fraud.

“It’s going to be a new world altogether,” Blair said. “The sooner we grasp that and start to put in place the decisions [needed for a] deep impact over the coming years the better.” 

[Tony Blair — Telegraph — Jan 27, 2021]

All in all, these are but a few reasons to hesitate and educate yourself before rushing to the next vaccine center to get this experimental gene therapy. Needless to say, I am not against all immune therapy. Horrible diseases like polio and smallpox have been all but eradicated using safe and effective vaccines. I am very concerned, however, at the precedent being established out of the manufactured fear and manipulation of the Covid-19 “crisis.”

For more information, I strongly encourage you to watch Dr. Simone Gold’s recent talk here, and visit the website of America’s Frontline Doctors here.

A Deep Dive into Daniel — Part 2 — The Iron Kingdom of Islam

“And there shall be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron, because iron breaks to pieces and shatters all things. And like iron that crushes, it shall break and crush all these.”

Daniel 2:40

In Part One of this series, I established that all four kingdoms of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream would occupy the same general land mass — or “ara” [אֲרַע] — see Daniel 2:39. The historical empires of Babylon, Persia, and Greece [Javan] were subsequent kingdoms that dominated the same territories in the Middle East and parts of Northern Africa. The geographical context provides the key to understanding the fourth and final kingdom that will emerge in the latter days.

By discovering the Middle Eastern context of the fourth kingdom, we can eliminate any chance for a “revived” Roman Empire as a valid candidate for the end-times kingdom of Antichrist. You can read here to get a more in-depth explanation as to why I reject the Roman Empire as the legs of iron in Daniel 2.

Furthermore, I established that the fourth and final kingdom — the legs and feet of iron mixed with clay — represents the end-times kingdom of the Beast [Antichrist]. This iron kingdom will be shattered by a “stone” not cut by human hands — meaning that this “stone” will originate from the God of heaven [Daniel 2:44]. Immediately after the “stone” from heaven destroys the fourth kingdom, God will establish His everlasting kingdom — his holy mountain — that will fill the whole earth.

When I take all of these things into consideration, there is only one legitimate candidate for the fourth kingdom of the last days. The legs of iron mixed with clay will be the Iron Kingdom of a revived Islamic Empire. While the European Union is weakening and disintegrating, Islam remains the fastest growing religious ideology in the world and remains a formidable force in the Middle East and around the world.

Let’s consider some more details that support Islam as the iron legs and feet mixed with clay.

Islam is Brutal but Fragile

Daniel 2 provides an interesting detail about this fourth and final kingdom in the last days. On the one hand it will be strong like iron, shattering and crushing everyone it conquers. From its inception, Islam has thrived in military conquest, using terrorism, oppression, and total domination of its enemies. The brutal tactics of Islam are well documented in both Muslim and secular sources. Islam is a merciless ideology that either kills or subjugates all conquered peoples and forces them to completely conform to the oppressive measures of shariah law.

As powerful as the Roman Empire became at its zenith, it never was characterized by annihilating other civilizations but rather allowed most conquered peoples to retain their cultural and religious identity. Not so in Islam. It is fiercely dominant and forces everyone to comply with sharia law and bow at the feet of Allah.

On the other hand, however, Islam is surprisingly fragile in and of itself and historically has been characterized by inner turmoil, religious factions, and political instability. Daniel speaks to this instability by saying that the fourth kingdom, although strong as iron, will at the same time be a “brittle” and “divided” kingdom — symbolized by the iron mixed with clay.

“And as you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, it shall be a divided kingdom, but some of the firmness of iron shall be in it, just as you saw iron mixed with the soft clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly iron and partly clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly brittle.” 

Daniel 2:41-42

It is interesting that almost every closed Islamic system quickly disintegrates into civil unrest and conflict. Peace and harmony are not common qualities found in Islamic society. This, of course, should come as no surprise since the Bible predicted the future plight of the descendants of Ishmael, who are predominately Muslim today.

And the angel of the LORD said to her,

“Behold, you are pregnant
and shall bear a son.
You shall call his name Ishmael,
because the LORD has listened to your affliction.
He shall be a wild donkey of a man,
his hand against everyone
and everyone’s hand against him,
and he shall dwell over against all his kinsmen

Genesis 16:11-12

Furthermore, Islam is especially fragile when one considers the perpetual schism between the Sunni and Shia branches of the Muslim faith. Although the Shia only represent 15-20% of Islam worldwide — mostly in Iran (Persia) — they retain significant influence and also represent a very extreme apocalyptic — almost fatalistic — ideology.

If the Antichrist — the Beast — is to emerge out of Islam, then one of his first objectives will be to somehow unify the Islamic world and bring the fragile factions of both Shia and Sunni together — perhaps through intermarriage [see Daniel 2:43]. Our study of Daniel 8 and 11 will provide more details about how this may happen, but for now, I would like to conclude by making mention of the ten toes in the metal image.

Ten Toes Represent Ten Kings

We discover that the ten toes in Daniel 2 are ten kings who will make an attempt at unification but ultimately will not hold together [Daniel 2:43-44]. This prophecy says that it will be in the “days of those kings” that the God of heaven will establish His kingdom that will never be destroyed.

The question is … what kings? Does the Bible provide any more support for a 10-king coalition brought together under the authority of the Antichrist in the last day?

Yes it does. Both Daniel and the book of Revelation further develop this important detail. I will leave you with some critical passages that are connected to the ten toes in Daniel 2.

“After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, terrifying and dreadful and exceedingly strong. It had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces and stamped what was left with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.”

Thus he said:

“As for the fourth beast,there shall be a fourth kingdom on earth,
which shall be different from all the kingdoms,
and it shall devour the whole earth,
and trample it down, and break it to pieces.
As for the ten horns,
out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise,

and another shall arise after them;
he shall be different from the former ones,
and shall put down three kings.”

Daniel 7:7, 23-24

“And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads. And the beast that I saw was like a leopard; its feet were like a bear’s, and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth. And to it the dragon gave his power and his throne and great authority.”

Revelation 13:1-2

“And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast. These are of one mind, and they hand over their power and authority to the beast. They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful.”

Revelation 17:12-14

My Corona Journal — Day 12 — Final Thoughts

“And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD. And his delight shall be in the fear of the LORD. He shall not judge by what his eyes see, or decide disputes by what his ears hear.”

Isaiah 11:2-3

This will be my 12th and final installment under the “My Corona Journal.”

After the President announced this week that social distancing recommendations (not laws) will be in place until the end of April, I felt led to wrap up the COVID-19 theme and refocus my attention to prophetic and apologetic material.

Having said that, I would like to share some interesting news headlines that I believe speak to the bigger picture and underlying issues behind the COVID-19 outbreak. As I have said from the beginning, hindsight will disclose what all this was really about. The virus is real and can be fatal. I have never denied that, but the numbers still don’t add up.

Although COVID-19 seems to be spreading fast, we must keep this outbreak into perspective. As of today, March 30, the total number of cases in the WORLD was less than 800,000. Here in the U.S. we have topped 150,000 cases and just under 3,000 deaths.

That may sound like a lot, but when compared to the seasonal flu, which already has infected up to 60 million Americans and accounted for nearly 60,000 deaths in 2020 and the other recent outbreaks like the 2009 H1N1 virus, this coronavirus has not yet proven to be any more substantial than other viruses of its kind. I understand many healthcare officials say this virus is “different,” but the evidence does not support that yet. All I am saying I reserve the right to wait and see if that is true or not.

All of these illnesses and deaths are most horrific and could affect any of us. I would never wish this disease upon anyone, and my heart breaks for those who are suffering or who have lost family members to this dreaded virus.

But this entire global crisis, in my humble opinion, has little to do with COVID-19 and has everything to do with significant shift in our world. Whether that shift is ultimately good or bad, I’m not sure. But I am confident that life as we know it will never be the same after this is over.

Headline #1 — Tampa Megachurch Pastor Arrested for leading packed services

Tampa Bay Area Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne was arrested this week on misdemeanor charges of unlawful assembly and violation of public health emergency order. I don’t know anything about Pastor Browne or his doctrine, but I do know that this scenario perfectly represents the tension that has emerged between civil liberties and governmental control.

While most churches have temporarily elected to suspend services, other churches around the country have decided to keep their doors open to their congregants.

I see this issue from both sides. Many keep saying that we are loving our neighbors and being good citizens by respecting the recommendations by our government and healthcare officials. I agree. Many also point out that this is only temporary and necessary to slow down the virus. Time will tell. Our church — Christ Church in Memphis — has taken this position. As an elder, I am in full support of this position, even though I am personally struggling with the dynamics at work that have limited civil liberties while at the same time emboldening elected officials with more unilateral powers.

When governments begin mandating and criminalizing our First Amendment rights, we had better pay attention. For example many cities, like New York, have criminalized social distancing requirements by fining or arresting violators. Maybe this is only for a limited season, but there is no guarantee that governments won’t take advantage of these executive powers again in any given situation.

My guess is that the COVID-19 response has been a test to see just how far the American people would allow the government to go in restricting our basic constitutional rights and God-given freedoms. Now that they have seen what they can do in a “crisis” situation, I am interested to see what constitutes a crisis moving forward.

Headline #2 — Shut Down Recipe for Social Unrest

It only makes sense that as more jobs are lost, the more bills are unpaid, the more people are forced to live in close quarters, the more fear spreads … the more civil disorder we can expect.

As the article above pointed out, “unemployment, impoverishment, and despair are frightening outcomes in themselves. They’re also a recipe for social unrest that will afflict even those of us who weather both the pandemic and the accompanying economic storm.

Headline #3 — Gun and Ammunition Sales Soaring across U.S.

American citizens have shown up in record numbers to prove how much they appreciate their 2nd Amendment rights. Apparently the COVID-19 outbreak has many American people contemplating the sobering reality of self-defense and potential martial law.

It is interesting that our forefathers and founders of this great nation considered this fundamental right so essential to all citizens. Notice the original language.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

The founders did not include this right in the constitution just for self-defense, however. Notice that the primary reason we are afforded this right is to secure a free State in the face of governmental tyranny.

No, we are not at that point, but we are fools to believe that corrupt government elites and self-serving career politicians aren’t chomping at the bit to take our guns away and then take our freedoms away. That has been the pattern historically in every totalitarian state, including Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, and even the socialist Venezuela of our day.

We know Jesus warned us against the dangers of living by the sword [Matthew 26:52], but we also forget that Jesus was not a total pacifist. As a matter of fact, Jesus instructed his disciples to bear arms at one point, knowing that they soon would be facing persecution.

He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one. For I tell you that this Scripture must be fulfilled in me: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors.’ For what is written about me has its fulfillment.” And they said, “Look, Lord, here are two swords.” And he said to them, “It is enough.”

Luke 22:36-38

Headline #4 — Internet Shut Down a Real Possibility during Crisis

There has been some chatter in certain circles about a potential internet shut down during the COVID-19 crisis. Only time will tell whether or not these suspicions are true.

We already know that the overwhelming number of people being forced to work online has caused some interference and slowing for most of the primary internet service providers. Many have already experienced this while trying to share bandwidth and data with an unprecedented number of users all at the same time.

But imagine if the entire internet temporarily was shut down in the U.S., especially in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak?

Can anyone say pandemonium?

Society would lose its ever-loving mind!

Is that even possible? Well when you consider that a record 21 countries cut off the Internet 122 times in 2019, it seems more likely than not that something like that could happen here.

Some believe that cyber-warfare could be the potential culprit with some type of cyber-security attack. Others have suggested scenarios where President Trump could use his executive powers to shut down the internet for security purposes. According to the Communications Act of 1934, which is still in effect though amended, the President has the authority to assume control of all communications in the country.

Section 706 of this law allows the president to shut down or take control of “any facility or station for wire communication” if he proclaims “that there exists a state or threat of war involving the United States.” With respect to wireless communications, suspending service is permitted not only in a “war or a threat of war,” but merely if there is a presidential proclamation of a “state of public peril” or simply a “disaster or other national emergency.” There is no requirement in the law for the president to provide any advance notice to Congress.

So just in case things go dark over the next few weeks within the next few months, just remember … God is still on His throne. Jesus is still King of heaven and earth. And the Holy Spirit still dwells within everyone of God’s redeemed. Trust God and love your neighbor and share the gospel like your life depends on it.

So until next time …

“Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all.”

2 Thessalonians 3:16

My Corona Journal — Day 11 — The Strongest Power in the Universe

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?”

Romans 8:35

I have to admit … after nearly a month of social distancing and isolation, it’s really starting to get to me. Don’t get me wrong. Family time has been great. Getting some projects done around the house has been needed. Extra time to read and reflect and seek the LORD has been such a blessing.

But something is missing, and with each passing week, it’s become more clear.

We were created for community.

God saved us and gave us a family — brothers and sisters in Christ — with whom we are one in Spirit and bound together in love.

I never knew how much I would miss my church family until they were gone.

I never realized how essential the people of God would be until I was forced to live without them.

I have discovered a newfound appreciation for the church, and for that I am forever grateful.

“There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”

Ephesians 4:4-6

As I sit here feeling sorry for myself tonight, the Lord graciously and gently reminded me of what I needed to remember the most.

God reminded me that … You may be separated from your church family. You may be forced to isolate yourself from the ones you love. You may feel alone and disoriented without your brothers and sisters in Christ.

But never forget … nothing in all creation can separate you from Me and from My perfect love.

It is at times like this that the simple but profound promises of God ring so true in my weary heart.

Nothing can separate me from the love of Christ Jesus … and His love is enough. We will conquer the Coronavirus through the greatest power in the universe. The power of God’s perfect love.

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:37-39
