Before you can render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s, (Mark 12:17) you must know first what belongs to Caesar, and in this moment of time, Caesar is beginning to believe that even your body belongs to him.
The mandates to accept the vaccinations are the proof of these words, disobedience at the moment brings only lite consequences, but the continual refusal by many to not follow the prescribed mandates will indeed bring much harsher punishment. I will not say if Revelation 2:10 is for this age of grace, or for the Tribulation period, but it will happen to some who will and have called Jesus Christ Lord. “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.”
In the eyes of those who are attempting this coup, this takeover of the planet, we are seen as the lower class, the noncompliant, the problem, and we must be stopped. Complete obedience is what our adversary desires, and he will have it, at least for a time. Every world leader throughout history has ruled with an iron fist, and this time will be no different in that regard, they no longer need the virus or the variants to progress along the path they have chosen, Caesar wants everything, including you.
We have spoken in these terms before my friends, Jesus refused to answer when He was commanded to, (Matt. 27:14) Paul refused to follow the order to leave the jail, (Acts 16:37) and that is why I was surprised when so many places that call themselves houses of worship locked their doors when they were ordered to, and will again if so commanded to. It is why it surprises me when I meet someone who has in the past made a profession of faith in our Lord, and they are wearing a mask.
Your flesh, your body is in dispute here, “For the betterment of all” is their battle cry, and I can think of no finer way to create division amongst the masses. Wealth has not done it, the different ethnic backgrounds have not worked as well as they desired, but this will, this will indeed separate family and friends. It is of course nothing less than the precursor to the mark, the fulfillment of Revelation 13:17, “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” The “haves” will have the mark, the “have nots” will starve, and it takes very little research to see that much of this has already begun in some nations.
This deception will not stop, items of convenience will continue to be removed, followed soon not only by those items necessary for survival, but the wherewithal to obtain them. Many will be placed in internment camps, many will not return home, this is a full assault, and it will not end well for most of us. “Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.” (Rev. 3:11)
Many of us may be put to the test to truly see if Jesus Christ is all we need, all we desire, there will be, as promised, much sorrow. (Matt. 24:8) But there can be much joy in sorrow, there can be a peace that passes all understanding, (Phil. 4:7) it all depends on you.
The Lord offers these things to us, but we must reach out and accept them in faith, we must believe that no matter what He sees fit to bring into our lives is for our good, (Romans 8:28) and for His glory, which should always be our ultimate goal, no matter the circumstances. When the money ran out, when the herds and flocks were gone, when the land had been sold, the people of Egypt sold themselves. You may need to make a decision in the coming days on whether or not you are for sale, or if you have already been bought with a terrible price.
