John 11:22-35 — Coronavirus Part 11

Dear Friends,

Greetings in Christ!!! Over a year ago I began a series on how to discern the truth when following a news item, using the coronavirus story as an example. If you lived in the city at that time, you may recall the empty streets and an eerie feeling that we were not in Kansas anymore, so to speak. We have learned a lot since then. It is now plain to see that the architects of the new world order have engineered the entire plandemic. They are using it to consolidate power, transfer wealth from the common people to themselves, and in their mind, ‘cull the herd’ since that is how they view us. This week we are going to review what we have learned about the plandemic, consider how we should look at the situation from a kingdom perspective, and consider where God may be going with this. 

Father, give us understanding as we read your word, so perfect, so timeless, so full of wisdom and knowledge, so elegant and efficacious in its ability to sustain us and direct our paths. Your servants are listening; speak to our hearts. Give us the grace to rightly divide your word and properly apply it, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

John 11:22-35
22 But I [Martha] know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.
23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.
28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.
29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.
30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him.
31 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.
32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled,
34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.
35 Jesus wept.
John 11:22-35

 

Jesus wept. I believe this is one of the most profound passages in Scripture — two short words that give us insight into the soul of our Saviour. At this point in our narrative, Jesus knows He will be nailed to the cross in only a few short weeks, but that is not what is troubling Him. He is moved with compassion for the loss that his friends have suffered. Nobody will ever be able to say Jesus does not understand their situation. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Jesus dedicated his short time on this earth to serving others, not out of a sense of duty or obligation, but because He truly loves us, more than we will ever know. Jesus is absolutely selfless. He never built Himself a house, never took a woman; He never used his power to pamper his flesh or aggrandize Himself in any way.

I believe John 11:35 sums up how Jesus feels about the situation in the world today; the situation in places where people are isolated from seeing a friendly face because of lockdowns; the wars and natural disasters that have been destroying lives and displacing families; the worldwide trafficking syndicate that keeps its victims in perpetual slavery; people who have been crippled or killed by the toxic shots that are being forced on us; the rise of the new world order. And yet, although Jesus wept for his friends and their loss, He was able to fix everything with three simple words: Lazarus, come forth. If you have been affected in one of the ways I just mentioned, or in some other horrible manner, keep in mind that however hopeless the situation may look, Jesus knows what He is doing. If you find yourself like Martha and Mary asking, ‘Jesus, why aren’t You here? Why don’t You do something?’, keep in mind, Jesus is still in control.

One thing we have consistently observed throughout this series is that if we rely on the media to keep us informed, we will receive a very skewed picture of what is taking place. When the US took Bagdad in 2003, Bagdad Bob famously told his viewers the Americans were committing suicide by the hundreds and would soon surrender, even as the sound of US tanks rolling into Bagdad could be heard in the background of his broadcast. His comments were comical to anyone who was aware of the actual situation. Similarly, the Bible gives us intel and insight that affords us a kingdom perspective concerning current events. For someone who is well-versed in Scripture, the US news sounds just as ludicrous as Bagdad Bob’s newscasts did. Through the word of God, we can see the big picture. Just as Jesus knew that Lazarus would be walking around soon as alive as ever, when we view the situation in the world today through the lens of Scripture, we know that nothing is as it seems.

If you are a regular reader of these notes, you already have a pretty good handle on what is happening with respect to the plandemic. (In Coronavirus Part 6 we looked at how this pandemic was planned in advance.) Without question, the plandemic is being used in tandem with the Great Reset to bring in the new world order. In our notes on John 3:17-21, we looked at one of the possible ways this plandemic may be used to implement the mark of the beast. If you are not a regular reader of these notes, a very good synopsis of all we have learned can be found here. Despite what we have been told, many doctors oppose the shots. Recently, a group of doctors, including the inventor of mRNA technology, Dr Robert Malone, met in Rome and charged COVID policymakers with crimes against humanity. Their petition, which has already been signed by more than 5000 doctors, can be found here. A recent open letter detailing the complex medical aspects of COVID penned under the nom de plume, Spartacus, was deleted from its original location but can still be found in several other places on the Internet, including here. I recommend you read it. Even though I did not understand all of the medical jargon I learned a lot from it. With this information in mind, let us now look at the latest news surrounding the plandemic:

The preeminent medical journal, The Lancet, has finally published the alternative view that the novel coronavirus was the result of a lab leak, the same thing Zerohedge reported (and I linked to) from the very beginning of the plandemic in February of 2020. Protests against the mandates and lockdowns are now emerging even in places like New York, yet the media still has their blockout in place, keeping this information from much of the public.

Meanwhile, the FDA recently held hearings on whether booster shots should be mandated. Some of the top FDA scientists testified that the shots are killing people in far greater numbers than any perceived benefit of lives saved by the shots. Two of these FDA scientists have quit their jobs in an apparent protest. Nevertheless, the NIH appears to be moving forward with the boosters. In a similar move, Pfizer has declared the mysterious white particles that caused Japan to reject whole batches of the shots are ‘safe’. (Japan has long been a country that exercises caution with vaccines. In the nineties, when Japan stopped mandating vaccines for infants, half of Japan’s new parents stopped immunizing their babies. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome immediately fell by half.) Some countries are scrapping restrictions altogether, but the UN is reportedly planning a permanent lockdown. In other words, the new world order is not going to give up.

At the very beginning of our study in John, I wrote how for many, COVID has become a religion. This is now more apparent than ever. Recently the new governor of New York, Kathy Hochul (D), spoke before a liberal church. She commended them for getting vaccinated. She called them her ‘apostles’ (does she think she is Jesus?) and said it was up to them to spread proper information on vaccines. She said that the vaccines were mandated by God and that those bad people who were not getting vaccinated were out of God’s will. Meanwhile, not only are many healthcare workers quitting their jobs in protest over the vaccine mandates, but hundreds of Navy SEALs are resigning as well. Teachers, police, and professional athletes are also refusing the shots.

Now let us consider the big picture. Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by the opposing forces in the world? Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. Noah was considered a right-wing extremist in his day — until it started to rain. After that, he was pretty mainstream. The same will be true of us.

…..In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
…..For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
…..So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
1 Corinthians 15:52-54

In the Bible, judgment is always paired with deliverance and our deliverance is coming soon. For some time now, I have felt that God is going to turn the tables and use the COVID situation for his glory. We have already seen some evidence of this. According to Pastor JD Farag of Calvary Chapel Kaneohe (CCK), the plandemic has brought multitudes to a saving faith in our Lord and Saviour — people who never would have otherwise sought for answers or heard the gospel. Many of these people have contacted CCK to share how the plandemic moved them to search the Internet for answers and ultimately receive Christ. Homeschooling enrollment has reportedly doubled since the beginning of the plandemic. These students have effectively been rescued from institutionalized indoctrination that was preparing them for the new world order. There is also some good news with respect to the virus itself. In much of India, for example in the province of Utter Pradesh, they have completely eradicated COVID through very low vaccination rates and the use of low-cost therapeutics like the wonder-drug Ivermectin. Perhaps this is why Binden instructed PM Modi not to answer questions from the press when he recently visited the White House. If these trends continue, could we possibly see a reversal of the policies that got us into this COVID mess? Maybe even a gospel revival, which is long overdue? 

I believe Jesus is coming back soon, but even if He isn’t He is definitely working in tremendous ways behind the scenes. Many of these ways are highlighted in the prophecy update below (or watch it here):

 

If the Lord tarries, we should be prepared to face the future as best as possible in the era of the Great Reset. This may mean switching careers. As many areas of the workforce are being phased out, you may want to retrain for an area that is growing, preferably one that allows you to work independently. Above all, we need to be in prayer, asking our Lord to direct our paths, being sensitive to how He may want to use us, or more specifically, who He may want to use us to reach. Remember, no matter how badly you may have been affected by the plandemic (or any other event), Jesus can reverse the situation in an instant just as He did for Lazarus and his sisters, and He will. Ultimately, the only way out of this mess we are in is through faith in Christ. In this week’s text we have Jesus’ fifth great I AM statement in the Book of John: I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: We know from John’s vision on the Isle of Patmos that a worldwide holocaust is coming. Jesus is the way to escape it. 

Father, thank You for everything You are doing in the world today. Thank You that nothing is too big for You. Thank You that You have a great deliverance for us the same as you did for Lazarus. Thank You for all who are coming to a saving knowledge of your Son. Thank You for the glorious future You have prepared for those of us who have received your Son. He is everything. We love and trust You, Father, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
