There are those who teach that there will never be accusation or opposition to those who seek to do the will of God. This is clearly false.

Firstly, we are fallen and weak.There is no good thing within us, and we naturally turn not to the things of God but to the things of this world. In this fallen time, there are those who state this with pride: in fact they demand that we rejoice in their debasement, and punish heavily the first person who sits down and stops applauding.

Secondly, it is only through Christ that we can do good, and the was despised. He was accused of being a madman and a demonic. To the first, any person who has an important task will at times not have the space to look after themselves, and they have to be reminded to eat or to sleep. To the second, those who are blind cannot discern light from dark, good from evil, and the angelic from the satanic.

And thirdly, this world groans for its redemption, which is delayed, so that Christ will call all of his home. This time is one of distress and persecution, It is also a time of mercy and repentance.

COLLECT ONE

O God,
the strength of all them that put their trust in thee;
Mercifully accept our prayers;
and because through the weakness of our mortal nature
we can do no good thing without thee, grant us the help of thy grace,
that in keeping of thy commandments
we may please thee both in will and deed;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Mark 3:20-35

20 Then Jesus entered a house, and again a crowd gathered, so that he and his disciples were not even able to eat. 21 When his family heard about this, they went to take charge of him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.”

22 And the teachers of the law who came down from Jerusalem said, “He is possessed by Beelzebul! By the prince of demons he is driving out demons.”

23 So Jesus called them over to him and began to speak to them in parables: “How can Satan drive out Satan? 24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26 And if Satan opposes himself and is divided, he cannot stand; his end has come. 27 In fact, no one can enter a strong man’s house without first tying him up. Then he can plunder the strong man’s house. 28 Truly I tell you, people can be forgiven all their sins and every slander they utter, 29 but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.”

30 He said this because they were saying, “He has an impure spirit.”

31 Then Jesus’ mother and brothers arrived. Standing outside, they sent someone in to call him. 32 A crowd was sitting around him, and they told him, “Your mother and brothers are outside looking for you.”

33 “Who are my mother and my brothers?” he asked.

34 Then he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! 35 Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.”

2 Corinthians 4:13 – 5:1

13 It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.” Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak, 14 because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. 15 All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.

16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

5 For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.

We are not to give up. We are being told to give up, over and over again They know they are failing so the propaganda is increased. I know when some of the blogs around here are over the target because they get taken down — Adam’s latest modest proposal, for instance, was not accessible here for hours. And yes, he has read Revelation.

I have previously mentioned my likeness for the idiotic and demeaning facemasks solely for the purpose of identifying the drop dead morons in our midst. Observing someone sitting alone in their car wearing a mask never fails to bring a smile to my face. It’s downright entertaining. But sooner or later the masks are going to go the way of the Nazi Party and we’ll have to go back to having to actually interact with people in order to discover and identify such infections of wokeness. Oh, the horror.

However, the jab is going to be a sure fire, long term, this won’t run out until they die method of identifying those people who fall for the messaging, lack the moral strength to stand up to the mob, or stridently believe in the church of woke. In other words, from a dating perspective – these are not the droids you’re looking for.

There does remain the possibility that the public spin will turn against the jab. If that happens then jabees will no doubt resort to telling fibs as to whether they had the shot or not. What to do, what to do …

I propose a tattoo for those who have had the jab. Its selling point will be that they can use it to virtue signal. While the forehead would be a fitting spot to place such a line of numbers, I suspect that this would not be acceptable. Therefore, a tattoo of numbered code on the forearm would probably be best.

Such a program would be win/win. Those who have had the vaxx can proudly show off their allegience to Globohomo, while those who do not wish to date, marry and reproduce with such people can safely identify them as such. Of course, the added benefit is that such a tattoo would be difficult to remove if things go south for the pretend-vaxx.

Just random thoughts, you understand.

We are not to give up. We are to marry within the faith — avoiding the spiritual tattoos of those who have taken themselves out of the gene pool, for the spike proteins in the mRNA vaccines do get into the reproductive organs among those who would people the world.

We are not to give up meeting together to glorify God.

We are not to give up speaking the truth, or loving our brothers in Christ.

And we are not to ever be as judgemental as this elite. God judges, and judges rightly. We will leave that to him. for we are not to be as this elite, or have marks of loyalty to them, or be like them.
