Thanking God for Covid-19 and the Shutdown

BY PGF

This post is about how deeply life has changed for me in the last two years because of Covid-19. Nah, just kidding; I haven’t done anything differently than before or now. But I am joyful and thankful toward the Almighty for the last two years. What’s been revealed is very instructive.

Those known of God should be serious, cataloging what they’ve learned about how the spirit of antichrist moves among the Godless, affecting their minds and every action. Although that lab-created virus was unpleasant and killed like a tough flu strain, even most of those who knew the whole thing was bunk succumbed to the spirit of fear, in one form or another, through adapting to the new normal as evil attempted to impose its will. Make note of it all.

We tend to focus on the people who brought the new normal, but we, born again by the Spirit of God, know they are merely agents. You got to witness firsthand something westerners have not seen since perhaps the Middle Ages; God allowing a grave evil to sweep through the land. You should pray to the Almighty and consider what you’ve seen; moreover, consider your ways in light of what you now know.

Secularists will use the term mass psychosis, but what we saw was that spirit of fear by the devil as the blessings of God are being withdrawn. You witnessed the power of evil through men to affect whole masses to do their bidding. You should now know what it is and how to recognize it.

Sin, and evil thereby, are very real, tangible. These are not philosophical conceptualizations to be pondered in a mountaintop monastery, nor are they ancient lore to be dismissed as the superstitions of our ancestors. You’ve now witnessed it, don’t deny it again.

You, too, should thank God, for that was quite a treat. The enemy gave away battle plans, means, motives, personnel positions and movements, tools, and sources and methods. Yes, it’s a war, and you should understand it as such. The enemy revealed many battlefield tactics. It would be wise to understand what you saw over the last two years in the context of war. God is merciful even in His judgments.

The “supply chain disruptions” should have made you serious about doing things yourself, the local way, among the trusted, moving closer to self-sufficiency. Again, thank God for the warnings, repent and act upon your new knowledge of the enemy.

And it isn’t over. If we read our Bible correctly, the last two years were just a remote storm cloud on the horizon of what’s likely coming. The explosion in depravity is not a sign of God’s judgment; it is God’s judgment. The horrendous and even audaciously flagrant wickedness of governments is not a sign of the judicial determination of God; it’s the result.

Christians Soldiers must know the Word of God. Your life depends upon it, or you will be led astray. If you got taken up in fear or have submitted to evil the last two years, that’s a good thing. Praise the Lord for this also; it’s why God sends warnings to His people in the mercy of His grace by longsuffering. Don’t lament but repent and make ready.

You should know by now where you are supposed to be, with what group of people in common you are to serve God while seeking to make yourself both versed and experienced in hard skills and hands-on doing. Pray for God to raise up a just leader, but you train the next generation, teaching them to be just men and women, righteous in Christ, forsaking all evil. Virtuous women and skilled men will matter most. It’s a separate post perhaps but we’ll mention that men will fight for a civilization populated by virtuous women.

Contact with the enemy has arrived. Please, I beseech you by the blood of Jesus Christ to hear and heed the warnings. Fear not for these two reasons: God is in control, and you were born for this very moment. God is sovereign, all is ordained, and you are here now for a reason. Be the light of Christ to those around you. Shed truth with all those you know. Spread the hope of coming victory for those that are righteous. And train for the other side of the coming conflagration(s). Dear Christian Brothers and Sisters, welcome to the war; it’s a pleasure to serve with you, repent toward God and prepare for the next battle. Pray that you not be deceived again.

It’s a spiritual conflict waged in the heavens played out among nations and men. Seek ye the Lord.

“Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.” – Proverbs 28:5

    “Virtuous women and skilled men will matter most.”

    As an old woman, I respectfully disagree. Both men and women must be both virtuous and skilled.

    When I was a wee little lass, women were supposed to be virtuous (boys will be boys) and men skilled (to bring home the bacon). In the kingdom of heaven, men are supposed to model Christ and women the church. When men go about doing evil, women will surely follow. Consider the old movie “Grease”, which is a glorification of the moral compromise of a young woman to be accepted and admired by an evil man. That movie came out almost 50 years ago. When men make work their god, women will surely quit being silly housewives and go get their own career and outsource their parenting. Both men and women abandon God for their new gods. What you see now is the abandonment of God for gods.

    Skills are good but the blessings of the Almighty are much better . And they only come from personal righteousness in a relationship of love and communion with the Holy Spirit . Most people thought I was the best heavy equipment mechanic they had ever seen . But I knew the truth and spoke it . We had a customer that was consistently having trouble with one machine . The boss had sent out every field mechanic we had but the machine would fail every time one of them declared it fixed and left the jobsite . The guy was going to send back every machine he rented from us and he had a bunch .So the boss sent me . I got there and started questioning the operator about the symptoms . Standing there watching him operate I leaned on the machine to rest my tired body ,it had been a long day, and the electro-mechanical solenoid I leaned on burnt me . As any half wit mechanic can tell you a solenoid getting that hot is in failure mode . I replaced it .The machine remained “fixed” and the boss spread my fame worldwide . I never claimed any credit for the fix but always gave the Lord of Glory the credit . He caused me to lean on that solenoid and discover what 5 previous mechanics had failed to find . My ego remained small but my faith in a Gawd that cares for us and provides for us remained steady . The next month after that I was awarded the companies choice of ” Field Mechanic of the Year” . But I knew who was running the show and it wasn’t me . I was at best a good hardworking mechanic . But He has blessed me . He loves us so !

    @Dov, we agree: a virtuous woman is skilled and hard working. I was not thinking of the modern definition of virtue. In fact, if you own a dictionary dated after 1850 or so, that’s not a freeman’s English dictionary; that’s a communist dictionary.

    But, I’m Christian, so the Holy Bible defines my life and worldview. Proverbs 31:10-31 is where those belonging to Christ get their definition of a virtuous woman.

    Also, we could add that the fruit of the Spirit are virtuous attributes, and how could they not be, since they are God’s fruit outward, speaking and acting through us.

    @robehr orinsky, thanks for that wonderful testimony. It reminded me of so many instances in the Bible, where the favor of the Almighty is with those that are faithful.

    RE “mass psychosis “…

    The official framing of the mass formation (or mass psychosis) “phenomenon” is misleading and wrong. The false hope-addicted psychologists and their acolytes want you to believe this is “just some temporary occasional” madness by the masses when it is but a spike of a CHRONIC madness going on for aeons with “civilized” people — read “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room –The Holocaustal Covid-19 Coronavirus Madness: A Sociological Perspective & Historical Assessment Of The Covid “Phenomenon”” …. https://www.rolf-hefti.com/covid-19-coronavirus.html

    One of these mainstream psychologists who have been spreading this whitewashed reality, Dr. Desmet, also fails to see that the PLANNED Covid Psyop is a TOTALLY deliberate ploy because he doesn’t think (after more than 1 year, even 2 years, into this total PLANNED scam!) it’s ALL intentionally sinister as he stated in a prior podcast (this makes him witting or unwitting controlled opposition).

    In the May of 2022 podcast with James Corbett he stated that “some people tend to overestimate the degree of planning and intentions” (behind the COUNTLESS, VERIFIABLE, FULLY INTENTIONAL, FULLY PLANNED atrocities by the ruling tribe of psychopaths over the last century alone) and see all of it as being planned which Desmet called “an extreme position” … Sound logical thinking is “extreme” and therefore false and sick in his demented delusional view!!!

    In his overpriced misleading whitewashing old material regurgitated book the psychology of totalitarianism he too states that “There are countless … examples that seem to point in the direction of a plan being implemented, such as the fact that the definition of ‘pandemic’ was adjusted shortly before the coronavirus crisis; that the definition of ‘herd immunity’ was changed during the crisis, implying that only vaccines can achieve it … [he continuous with several other obvious facts of an ENTIRELY PLANNED event, especially discerned through the totality of all these facts].” “SEEM to point in the direction of a plan”??? No! They most evidently, clearly, and irrefutably DO demonstrate and prove it IS a COMPLETELY AND FULLY DELIBERATE PlanDemic! A big scam. An Entirely Planned Holocaust against the non-ruling herd of people (see cited link above). A coherent 12-year old kid can figure that out.

    It clearly shows Desmet’s own complete lunacy. But because almost everyone in the culture is a member of mass formation (madness), including the “woke” people of the alternative media domain, hardly anyone recognizes Desmet’s lunacy. Not surprising that he has even become some type of popular “guru” among the adherents of the alternative media landscape and his whitewashed fake narrative strongly resonates with both mainstream people and alternative mainstream folks.

    With his false use of language Desmet obscures or hides the true reality instead of directly and uncompromising exposing it — aiding the obfuscation of the vital reality of what the ruling authorities really are. He does the same thing when he speaks of ‘the elite’ (as he does in a number of podcasts) when, in reality, they are THE SCUM OF HUMANS because they are REALITY-VERIFIED PSYCHOPATHS (see referenced source above). Yet in the Corbett podcast he “teaches” us that we, the masses, need to start thinking differently. Right… how about YOU start with sane instead of insane thinking/talking/”teaching”/etc, Dr. Desmet?

    How do self-styled “truth-tellers” wake up the masses to the so-called truth when they THEMSELVES use lies with their deceitful fake language???
    No one is “teaching” or “waking up” the ignorant masses to the CORE truths with lies, with the official “language of lies” (see cited source above).

    This all means Desmet is ALSO a member of the masses of lunatics, an ACTIVE CARD-CARRYING MEMBER of mass formation!!! When, if at all, will he wake up from his state of mass psychosis, his “invisible” stupidity? When, if at all, will he face the TRUE and FULL reality instead of hiding behind fantasies such as his whitewashed “reality” of human civilization?

    It shows we live in a global mental asylum with criminal and/or delusional mainstream psychologists, scientists, and docs as the guards, “teachers” and “therapists” … The blind/criminal/mad leading the blind/criminal/mad; the blind/criminal/mad adhere to the blind/criminal/mad = the human madhouse.

    Worst of all, perhaps, the mass formation/mass psychosis notion frames the problem as the public being a mere unaccountable non-culpable victim in this phenomenon (the gist of the circular argument is: the masses should change their thinking but they got brainwashed so they’re victims). Nothing could be further from the truth (see referenced source above).

    Desmet is right in that truth-activists must fight against mass formation psychosis (human madness). That also means exposing HIS deeply destructive mad part of it. This comment serves, in part, that objective.

    I thank God as well. He sovereignly used that sudden revealing of evil to bring me to my knees in repentance and after many years of thinking I was saved, I finally was truly born again. I finally saw the truth of how depraved man is, how incapable we are of saving ourselves and how much we need a savior.

    “Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his throughs; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon” Isaiah 55:6-7

    Amen & Amen! Outstanding article; great reminder of God (still & always) being in charge! I often have to keep reminding myself of this with all of this evil surrounding us. Thank you for writing this!

    Another thing that was revealed was that no one with influence and no institution is on our side. We are a bunch of individuals with no real power or organization. If nothing changes, that means we lose, no matter how much people beat their chests online or proclaim that “God decides!”

    Coalesce, talk with neighbors, find or become the local leaders we need.

    Thank you for this post, Brother. It is a great reminder. I am also very, very happy that I know Who wins in the end.

    Ditto what James said in the first comment.
    Thank you for preaching, for sharing, for being the shepherd and for helping others to see the light of truth.
    It is hard to admit, because once you accept that we are literally at war, you’ve accepted life or death, us or them, and there is no going backwards from that, only forward.
    Onward Brothers, to Victory!
