SHOULD I BE VACCINATED?

Should I be vaccinated or not?

We have confusing theories floating in the air like balloons concerning covid 19 vaccination. The masses don’t know what to think. They talk of depopulation, right? What about biblical interpretation of the Mark of the Beast, the so called 666. Who is correct and who is not? Were these scriptures mean’t to bring anxiety and fear?
All these things are not new. Even at the time of Jesus Christ here on earth, he was confronted with conspiracy theories and propaganda, but what was his modus operandi? Let’s check the Samaritan woman and Jesus Christ confrontation.

John 4:20-21
Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.”
Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.

Wether the woman was correct or not, we know how Samaria stopped going to worship at the temple in Jerusalem

Read this scripture;
1 Kings 12:26-28
And Jeroboam said in his heart, “Now the kingdom may return to the house of David:If these people go up to offer sacrifices in the house of the Lord at Jerusalem, then the heart of this people will turn back to their lord, Rehoboam king of Judah, and they will kill me and go back to Rehoboam king of Judah.”
Therefore the king asked advice, made two calves of gold, and said to the people, “It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem. Here are your gods, O Israel, which brought you up from the land of Egypt!”

Every social problem we have was created by someone’s flawed way of thinking. Out of fear of revolt, Jeroboam caused people to worship calves.

Problems like these cannot be solved at the same level they were created. I mean choosing one side of the story to support, is not a loftier way. Jesus did not choose any side of the story, He came with an another superior dimension. He took over the situation. Though He was a Jew, He didn’t take the side of Jews way of worship or Samaritans way. He chose to answer the woman not from History, but from the promises of God.

I know of reports of people who reacted badly to vaccines, and I also know of the reports that people vaccinated are showing mild to no symptoms. All these are facts,
Here is my wisdom whether you choose to be vaccinated or not don’t make the decision out of fear of death.Thus, the strategy of energy, to instill fear. Make a decision out of conviction derived from the promises of God,
Here is one of them:

Now should I be vaccinated or not, thus your questions right?

Mark 16:17-18
And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;
they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

So, this is conclusion of the matter whether you take the poisonous and deadly virus from inhaling or by a jab, presuming it might happen, I still believe the conviction from the promise above from God will be your shield

John 11:40
Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe, you would see the glory of God?”

When the Son of Man come, will He find faith?

  1. I have believed even since before the pandemic that I will not leave this world one moment before God is ready to call me home, and when that time comes, I have no desire to remain here a moment longer.
    I have also alluded to Mark 16:18 numerous times. – And Paul was an example of that at the end of the book of Acts, when he was bitten by a venomous snake, and the poison injected in him did not kill him! …Not sure that’s an invitation to take poison, though … 😉

  2. It continues to amaze me how many ‘Christians’ believe in eternal life but do their best to evade death, not speak of it, try to out wit, over and over, even after quality of life is gone… Each person has to decide for themselves yes/no – based on, to me, what their level of duty to those they care for/serve here on earth and whether they decide to be cautious in order to stick around awhile longer to care for others, etc., But over all? I am just not that impressed with folks who claim Jesus and Eternal life is the way but can’t bear the thought of dying anytime soon – just by simply living in their times – No disrespect intended – but it IS one of the things I ponder upon frequently – that and the whole ‘render unto Caesar what is his” quote – when I think about rampant and destroying capitalism, taxes, politics and consumerism – – LOL.

    1. Render unto Caesar scripture is a powerful one,I wanted to use it in this post but it but somehow i left it.The fear of death is real mate.
      And it’s topic that is not yet ripe for any debate .

    2. I cannot speak for everyone, but It is not the fear of death itself. It is the process of death, of transitioning from the physical to the physical. It is rather a fear of the unknown.
      I could get deeper and explain many perspectives within detail, however, I do not want to turn my comment into a novel.

      To sum it up one can believe in eternal life and be afraid to die it is not at all contradictory.

      1. With some people I think they’re worried about where they may go when they die. Some people are over confident about their salvation and some are not confident enough.

        Remember Jesus said, “Not everyone who says Lord, Lord will enter into heaven”. I am sure you know the rest.

        There are people who go donate to charity, read their bible, go to church and so on, but they are just on their way to hell because their heart and character isn’t right.

        We don’t get saved by our actions or works, but by the grace of God.

        For some, it is a lack of trust and fear of God for not understanding his true character. They think that God is holding every little thing against them as they try their best to surrender to him. God is not a police God ready to put us in jail (hell). He knows who truly seeks him. This is why we have the Holy Spirit to help and enable us.

        For some like I mentioned in the first comment the fear of how it will be or feel to separate from our physical body. They wonder will the experience be scary. We are used to this physical realm crossing over is foreign.
        When we go to sleep and dream we adapt to our state of temporary unconsciousness where everything appears to be natural and otherworldly. We live out scenes that appear just as real to us. Some dreams are better than the actually life that we live. Perhaps the death transition is similar whereas we are comfortable (if we go to the right place).

        He’ll and encountering demonic principalities is the biggest fear with many.

        Of course, the Lord does not give us a spirit of fear but the devil uses our little wonders and doubts and make a molehill out of it. Satan likes to prey on us and exaggerate what is in our imagination with death and dying.

        However, the fear of death is understandable and normal even to the strongest person of faith.

        Yes, God says how wonderful and beautiful the place is that he is preparing for us but it is all in how we will be transported if you understand what I mean.

        I can still go on, but I know I have written a lot already. I like to talk and engage in conversation about the many mysteries in life, and about God and life in general.

        I have been this way since childhood. When I was a kid I was always around grown-folk and they said I had an old soul.

        Well explained. Yes there are many factors that leads to people being afraid of death …sometimes even born again LOL especially if you are young, you still have dreams and visions so you cannot afford to think of death.I still remember then i wouldnt want anyone martketing funeral policies to me LOL.
        But i have met a lot of grandparents who wanted to depart.I guess is its the feeling of having done it all and emptied themselves.Maybe that they have conviction that they are in right standing with God and that they will go to a better place…

      3. When I was in my teens and early twenties I was ready to leave the earth. But when I looked back as I got older it would have hurt my mother so badly and others who loved me. So I am glad they did not have to go through that pain.

        I did not tell just anyone I wanted to die because they would have taken it the wrong way. I knew I never belonged here in this world. I was ready to go back then. I am forty-six now. The Lord has a plan for me and when he is ready he will bring me home, and I am at peace with that.

      5. Yes. And you are such an inspiration. Keep on bringing up these issues/ topics they are very important.

        I am glad you bring these subjects up.

        Things that a lot of people feel uncomfortable about, don’t like to talk about, avoid all together, or just cannot grasp are the things that I was always ready to welcome, explore and tackle. It came natural to me.

        I think that is part of God’s plan for some of us. We all have our particular calling.

        He instills some of us by birth with a passion, drive, disposition, thought process, and etc…. then further equips us along the way to carry out our mission.

      6. Hear ya and agree – I often write novellas in commenting – but yes, transitions are always scary on any front – here, there – from here to there – humans have lived a long time with the reality of change that isn’t always readily understood, or adpated to quickly and yet, so many of the things that surround me on daily basis? Try to encapsulate it in some short, easy-peasy way, that to me? Doesn’t even scrape the surface of what really happens within the human heart/mind when change happens, looms near, etc. No matter how much they know or think they know! Thanks for your reply! I appreciate those who take time to wade in on the discussion and also, the questions I have/the things I fail to even find a reference point to better understand – much appreciated!

      7. I agree with misslatoya as far as what is known in my neck of the woods as “Sunday only Christians’ – :D. (i.e. donate to charity, read the bible, but heart/character not right comment) –

        That said, I have known people who profess to be atheists, who had outstanding moral qualities and characters in the way in which they lived their lives, and once we had conversed more deeply, I discovered they believed in a higher power, just not in the way their family/community of youth theologically/dogmatically insisted God/Jesus was – It was very relevatory to me, personally.

        I think, for myself, that’s why when various folks insist on ‘must be done in this way, with these words, on this day’ I sometimes get frustrated. While I truly believe rituals, and traditions in order to commit to creating the space in which one truly communes with God, I also know just enough through my studies (amateurish as they are!) that these traditions and rituals and what is insisted upon as the ‘right’ way, has changed over a long period of time – And while I believe in revelations to those who devoutly pursue their deepening understanding of their experience of God and the works/words/divine inspiration history of millenia ago – well, sometimes the most aggressive insistence by some rather chaffes at me and DOES skew my perspective of that personage.

        That said, I must be totally honest – I became very ill when I was 15 – high fever and I DID experience fear – my mother was nearby, and doing what she could to bring the fever down, but I felt as if I was disappearing…I felt as if when I closed my eyes, I would disappear and I was scared. I told her, and said, “Mom, will just sit and hold my hand? If you hold it, I KNOW I won’t float away and disappear” – but that was the first time….

        Many years later, I came close to dying before emergency surgery – I remember that feeling too – I was so very tired, and sick and had been for some time – Again, I felt as if I were being drawn away from life, and it saddened me, on some fronts, because my children were still so young, and yet, I felt my self embracing the peace, the rest, the ‘cocoon’ of floating….

        Fast forward another 15 years, and I felt such a thing again – in the ambulance, during my stroke… I was eagerly embracing it – I was so ready! Even though I had one child left at home, my heart knew he would be okay. The paramedic kept tapping me, talking to me and saying “Stay with me” and I was so mad at him! I was so ready to go!

        At the hospital, they ran a test, but couldn’t tell for sure if it was a clot or a hemhoragge – but they were ‘running out of the window’ of time, to give me the shot to dissolve the clot – I already couldn’t speak or do anything with my right side – Amazingly, I could WRITE with my left hand! Surely a miracle, right there!

        But the doctor said, “We need to give you this soon and if it’s a clot? We will have caught it in time and you should be fine, but if it’s a hemhorrage? You will die in 5 minutes or less.” –

        I asked him one question, “How much hurt? Before Die?” :D. Seriously!! That’s what hedonist me asked!

        He paused, and then said, “I don’t know. I don’t think anyone who can tell ya, really knows.”

        I asked for my son and mom to come over – hugged them, and said, “Do it”

        I survived but my recovery was very long and hard to recover skills, etc. I felt as if all had been stripped from me, even my ability to type, speak or work and rebuild my life for me and my son.

        I was angry at God and told him so for a few weeks, too! :D. But at some point, I became reconciled and told him, “Okay, here’s my promise to you – I wake up breathing? I will turn my hand to whatever you put in front of me to do the best I can. But know this! I no likey being useless and a burden – so I’ll work on my part and You’re gonna have to do yours – please??” – 😀

        Sorry so long, but I wanted to share that window into my personal experience – because I do believe each of those events in my life PROFOUNDLY affect how I view this topic/feel about it – and well, it felt right and fair, to be truthful about it – for me? Not all my bias against some people and things, comes just from studies or book-learning – it comes from every cell in my body and the depths of my soul, only – no proof or stats or anything to back it up, either! 😀

      8. Well – maybe I did, maybe I didn’t – atheists and scientists and doctors of no faith will tell you flat out, I ONLY experienced those moments because my brain was cooking (fever) and/or blood/oxygen supply to my brain was impeded/in short supply – :D. Don’t know if it’s still true, but long ago, when I was at home, recovering from stroke and no way to get professional help on any front? I read and learned – and here’s what the ‘story’ was back then, on many fronts, from the ‘experts’ in various arenas –

        “We know more about the Moon than we do about our oceans – – We know more about our oceans than we do about the human brain…”

        LOL It is what it is – and my personal experiences and my BRAIN often tells me one thing – “this is right/wrong, justified/be patient” all while my heart and soul tell me something else – –

        I have proven to myself over and over again, once I truly turn some challenge over to God? and say, “Did my best to try and deal with it, but, no go/only making it worse/etc so now? Yours to handle – as you see fit” help and all shows up within 24 hours or less (this, I believe, is what all the New Age, “Positive Thinking/Manifest your Own Life gurus make big $$ off of….sigh…) and yet, I often ‘wait on action, even when every thing in my body/heart/mind is screaming at me to take a certain action…why do I hesitate?

        “Well, THATs not very kind/fair/compassionate, etc. You JUST KNOW you have your own bias!” and yet, sometimes? God doesn’t line up all the answers with zero effort on my part other than me saying, “Don’t know about it all, Have been losing my temper for months now – very resentful now, and I’m DONE, cuz saying it nicely ISN’T working!!!”

        And walla! Stuff just shows up – I held on to so many fronts, for so many years, through loyalty, vows, etc., and then? One day? After praying so hard and so long? I just TOLD God – “Okay – not pretty, not at my best and do what you will, but I won’t stick around for this anymore!” and one time? Two phone calls arrived within 20 minutes, out of the blue and not on my radar on how those folks even thought to pick up the phone and ask, ‘no, really, how are you and what’s going on other than ‘you’re fine!” and I just told them the truth – and ta-da! Issues solved quickly, fears I had wiped clear off the table….

        This is why I struggle with many modern concepts and shares of “Let God Handle It/Trust in God/Follow God’s Plan for you” missives – along side the entire, ongoing, long held conversations regarding Free Will.

        My Free Will is not always pretty! That’s a Fact – but sometimes? Often in the past? It’s almost as if God was just sitting there, waiting, for me to express my Free Will in all it’s human (and sometimes, less than stellar??) ways –
        And then? Miraculously, once I said, “Not doing this anymore – do what You Will, strike me dead, but I WILL NOT DO THIS!” all the sudden?

        Everything just handled – And this wasn’t regarding addictions or habits, etc. It was regarding relationships, marriages, health recovery, etc. Not a bargain deal, to me – I just informed God, “Okey-Dokey, I’m gonna do this – do your worst, do your best, whatevs, but this is the only way I see forward” – 😀

    3. Hi Tamarah Jo

      I read your comment about your stroke. So sorry and so glad you are okay and still here to talk about it. You are a great testimony.

      My grandmother had a stroke when I was ten. Read about it here, I spoke of on a few of my blogs:

      https://latoyalawrenceblog.wordpress.com/2021/09/19/nothing-is-impossible-with-god/

      https://dailyinspirationsforyourlife.wordpress.com/2020/12/29/gods-healing-touch/

      I lost my mother last year three days after my forty-fifth birthday. She went into cardiac arrest at home right in front of me. Her carotid artery was block so she had a stroke in the process.

      We were extremely close. I love her and miss her. She loved God all her life. I know she’s there with him.

      I totally agree with you about a lot of atheist. Even those who believe there is a God but who are not necessarily Christians are some of the most sweet, kind, generous and understanding people whereas many Christians are nasty, judgmental and other not so nice things. I have always known this.

      I know you don’t know me but I am very honest, fair, and very open-minded and do not think negatively about people  simply because they are indifferent or undecided about God or Christianity.

      Whether one believes in God or not he exists and is watching over all of us. We all have to travel our own journey the Lord will reach those in do time within his way.

      2. After the situation with my grandmother I had never thought anymore about it. I had considered it just a special moment that occurred from God.
        I didn’t know anything about laying hands on back then.
        I just knew I saw visions, had dreams that came true, knew things, and knew things about people that no one had told me beforehand. I could feel other peoples emotions, feel situations, intuit people’s thoughts, and feel the spiritual realm. Good things would come to me. I had a lot of luck/blessings (I did not have an easy life but my mother and I lived a good life by perseverance). As a very young child I thought these were faculties everybody had. They came as natural to me as breathing. They still do. The only thing is the faculties have gotten even stronger throughout the years. I had discovered ability I didn’t even know I was capable of doing.
        It was certain people who kept telling my mother to take me to touch my grandmother.
        So, I don’t know if they themselves sensed something, if the Holy Spirit spoke to them or what.
        However, it worked.
        My mother told me she always knew I had a gift.
        My mother had a gift, as so did certain other members of my family.
        There were gifts on both sides of my family. I had it on my mother and my father’s side. And my mother had it both on her father and mother’s side. My mother’s side of the family were strong believers in God.
        As children, my mother and her siblings went to church every Sunday, and so on.
        We all did not go to church regularly, some did not go at all, but we had God within our hearts.
        I never tried or was moved to heal anyone intentionally afterwards, but I had what others called the “magic touch” (and I do not mean anything with sorcery).
        One thing that I really dislike about certain so-called Christians is when one uses a figure of speech and they take it all out of context by their misconceptions or think that one needs to be corrected over a remark as if they are not knowledgeable about scripture and etc….
        A lot of them need to stop being ignorant.
        There are people who know scripture very well and are in a strong relationship with God and have different experiences and sometimes phrase things the way they are accustomed or comfortable to. It does not mean they are any less informed.
        Like I said I thought it was a special moment because I believed in the possibility that God would work through me at the time because I knew I was spiritual.
        I never considered myself a healer in that respect.
        I know that I am very strong in prayer. God has always given me the majority of things that I wanted. I even got the things I needed and wanted when I was angry at him.
        When I was angry at God I did not turn and start living foul or anything of that nature.
        I remained the same and continued to grow. I had no desire to live outside of Spirit I was just angry at him and did not talk to him anymore. I prayed to what I considered was good while I felt God was bad.
        Regardless, he still was there. He shed his grace and mercy.
        I cannot get into my entire life story, however, I was not being spiteful toward God.
        He knows my life I don’t have to explain anything to anyone, but I do believe he is using me at times to be a testimony through many accounts of my life.
        I was able to remove the witchcraft that jealous people placed in my path a long time ago and keep it away. While they were working their black magic I was not affected by it mentally or emotionally but I knew everything they were doing through the Holy Spirit.
        People I know personally and that I have encountered have told me I have helped them in many significant ways so I guess I have a way of comfort through wisdom imparted by the spirit.

Aaah great the reason i ask is that when we still here on Earth, we need to keep asking God to clarify our calls.Maybe you can pray along those lines those gifting are still in the church but because there is so much abuse by other perverted individuals the tendency to suppress them is high.

    1. BrittnyLee – sorry I’m delayed in my reply – but Fibromyalgia is such a bear of challenges to walk through May you be blessed with the space and grace to embrace the pain, transcend the pain, or be blessed by the alleviation of it – I don’t pray for specific outcomes, just for sending whatever you need, in order to walk with this moment in time – sigh – sometimes, in my life? I truly felt the strength I was blessed with to endure it, or the grace to walk through it, or the miracle of things arriving in aid, only came about due to the prayers of others – who held the faith for me, when I was so tired, worn out and low energy, I didn’t have even the energy to ask for anything at all – other than “release from this….please!” Sigh – you are on my prayer list.
