In this post, we will look at Jesus’ statement concerning the exclusive nature of everlasting life. When Jesus told us not to let our hearts be troubled, He qualified this order by giving us something to look forward to: the place He is preparing for us in his Father’s house. Jesus then told us how to successfully obtain this promise. Give us understanding, Father, as we read thy word, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
…..Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
In other words, our inner peace is contingent on Jesus’ promise that He will come back again and take us with Him to his Father’s house. In essence, Jesus is telling us to put our helmets on (Eph 6:17) and prepare for the rapture of the church, which is pre-trib, and saves us from the day of his wrath. To make our calling and election sure, we must therefore trust in Christ alone. If we are looking to any other thing, our good works, for example, or anyone other than Jesus, we are making our calling and election less sure. The exclusivity of Christianity (faith alone in Christ alone) is tied to the doctrine of grace — the offer of everlasting life free of charge because my debt has been paid in full on the cross at Calvary. Under the new covenant of grace, not only are our good works incapable of getting us into heaven, our bad works are incapable of keeping us out of heaven. (1 John 1:9 et al) When Jesus died for us and rose again, He paid for all of our sins (our bad works). We all fail, but Jesus never fails. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life: It is the Shepherd’s job to get his sheep back home and I trust Jesus to get me there, just as He said He would. (John 14:3; Phil 1:6; et al) John 14:6 is Jesus’ sixth I am statement in the Book of John:
I am the bread of life
I am the light of the world
I am the door
I am the good shepherd
I am the resurrection and the life
I am the way, the truth, and the life
I am the vine
These Bible basics are more important than ever in the age of COVID. In previous posts, we have looked at many different proofs showing how we are for all practical purposes at war. From the very beginning, it was clear that this was a religious war, as they started releasing inmates and jailing pastors. Many Christians who knew very little about vaccines or the new world order knew not to take the shots. Why? Because when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. Religious wars that target born-again believers are nothing new, but this is the first time we have seen anything quite like this. The reason we see this worldwide deception is because we are transitioning from the legs of iron in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream (Dan 2) to the feet of iron mixed with clay. The legs have tapered down to the ankles as Rome faded into the background, yet Rome still wields an enormous amount of power behind the scenes. After the rapture of the church, Rome will again take center stage as her false prophet points people to the Antichrist.
In the days of the cult of the deified emperor, Roman citizens were compelled to offer a pinch of incense to Caesar and call him ‘Lord’. The Christians refused, since paying homage to any deity other than Christ violated their conscience. For their civil disobedience, they were thrown to the lions as entertainment for good Romans citizens. We are not quite there yet, but as we see virtually all common sense thrown to the wind, it is clear that we are being conditioned for what is coming, the dictate to bow down to the image of the beast and take his mark in the right hand or forehead. For the time being, one of the most important ways we must fight this war is by standing together. Our Lord is a Lion (Rev 5:5). As his followers, we must act like lions as well. Lions will stand together when facing a wild pack of laughing hyenas. There is strength in numbers and there are more of us than there are of them:
One of the ways we can do this is to stand with people who are persecuted for resisting — people like Canada’s Pastor Artur Pawlowski, who was sent to prison for standing with the Canadian truckers who resisted the government’s ‘vaccine’ mandates. I highly recommend this update on Pastor Pawlowski. He is a lion:

Another way we can fight is by forming our own systems that are uncoupled from the establishment pharmakeia system. That is what the people in Arizona at Freedom Healthcare are doing. If you do not have a private healthcare association that honors the Hippocratic Oath in your country, maybe you could start your own. Freedom Healthcare was started by an ordinary sister with no background in the medical field.
In closing, there has been a lot of chatter about the viral documentary video featuring Dr Ardis on the Stew Peters Show. Dr Ardis made some very sensational claims about snake venom and its role in the pandemic. I do not doubt the sincerity of Stew Peters or Dr Ardis, at all. In many ways, however, I am skeptical of some of the claims made in the interview. On the other hand, Dr Ardis spent months researching the subject and I believe we should at least consider what he said. I agree with the perspective of Dr Lee Merritt but before we look at what she has to say, let us consider one of the symbols talked about in the documentary, the symbol of the medical system. Why does the medical community use Hermes’ caduceus (wand) as their symbol? The Greek god Hermes (Roman counterpart, Mercury), was the messenger of the gods. (As in messenger-RNA?) He was also the god of merchants (commerce), which makes his symbol a fitting symbol for the medical community.
The caduceus closely resembles the DNA double helix. We have discussed predictive programing in previous studies and incidentally, the plot of reptiles manipulating human DNA has been woven into several films (like the TV series V – The Visitors, for example). Any connection of these plots to the shots is anecdotal and unprovable, but it is something to think about. After all, we know that it is Satan, that old serpent the devil, who is behind all this. As far as the idea that we have to ‘watch the water’ goes, that is nothing new. I have filtered my water for years and you should too, even if you don’t live in Flint, MI.
Finally, because we are at war, we have to consider these things but we must not let them consume us or dominate our thinking. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. We must take every thought captive and stay focused on Christ — on his promises to us, contained in his word for us. We serve the Prince of Peace, not the god of fear. The enemy uses the power of fear to control people, which is why Jesus commands us, Let not your heart be troubled: Father, thank You for the peace that passes understanding. Help each of us to be as bold as lions, that we may stand in the power of the Holy Spirit, having done all to stand. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
…..But his [the blessed man] delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
…..He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them [the NWO] in derision.
…..I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.
…..I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.
…..Destroy thou them [the NWO], O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.
