Yesterday we had a long chat with the leader of our home group. He asked us to be in Church this Sunday. Because this will be the last church meeting for 2022. The City Council demands that we use the vaccine pass to allow anyone into the building. This is something my friend cannot abide. We should not limit the access to worship. Anyone can come in. Jesus allowed sex workers and traitors (tax collectors) to become disciples. So should we.

There will not be church meetings until the new year. During that time, I expect that the vaccine passes will be ignored. We are being trained to be pragmatic, to ignore the laws that do not work. To stop being English, doing our duty: to become Chinese or Italian, and do what is needful, ignoring the regulations written by those in the capital.

The fact that the churches are being functionally closed by the government is a sign that we have fallen. When there is the ability to reform and repent, then prophets and preachers are sent and listened to.

Our leaders are now deaf. They have not yet killed the prophets, but they are being arrested. The churches that have taken a pragmatic stance will remain open, but they are listening more to the laws of man than to the laws of God.

Nehemiah 9:26-31

26 “Nevertheless, they were disobedient and rebelled against you and cast your law behind their back and killed your prophets, who had warned them in order to turn them back to you, and they committed great blasphemies. 27 Therefore you gave them into the hand of their enemies, who made them suffer. And in the time of their suffering they cried out to you and you heard them from heaven, and according to your great mercies you gave them saviours who saved them from the hand of their enemies. 28 But after they had rest they did evil again before you, and you abandoned them to the hand of their enemies, so that they had dominion over them. Yet when they turned and cried to you, you heard from heaven, and many times you delivered them according to your mercies. 29 And you warned them in order to turn them back to your law. Yet they acted presumptuously and did not obey your commandments, but sinned against your rules, which if a person does them, he shall live by them, and they turned a stubborn shoulder and stiffened their neck and would not obey. 30 For many years you bore with them and warned them by your Spirit through your prophets. Yet they would not give ear. Therefore you gave them into the hand of the peoples of the lands. 31 Nevertheless, in your great mercies you did not make an end of them or forsake them, for you are a gracious and merciful God.

Luke 21:20-24

20 “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those who are inside the city depart, and let not those who are out in the country enter it, 22 for these are days of vengeance, to fulfil all that is written. 23 Alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days! For there will be great distress upon the earth and wrath against this people. 24 They will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive among all nations, and Jerusalem will be trampled underfoot by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

Most commentators note that the passage from Christ is a description of what Titus did to the Jews in AD 69-73. They were scattered, enslaved, the temple remains destroyed. There is a mosque were the altar used to be.

The spirit of the LORD left Judaism, and is with the church.

But we should not be complacent, as our elite is. Because they rejected Christ and lost all kingdom and empire, so it could happen to us.

It is far better to ignore what the fallen elite want. And fallen they are.

I see it everywhere, and I have seen this all my life. The worst student at school were those with the leftist social initiatives, clamouring for social justice and advocating communism. The actress who went (willingly, as they all do) through the casting couch, then invents social activism to hide the fact that she slept with powerful men in order to get in front of less immoral actresses, or even blathers about #metoo after successfully playing the “slut for fame” game. The rich divorcee of the billionaire will start a charity supporting social causes to gain the recognition her puffed up ego now reclaims, and make people forget she never had any special distinction or accomplishment, besides divorcing one who had it and taking a lot of his money for herself.

Leftism is the easy virtue maker for people without virtue, and the bigger the second, the harder the first. We see this at work everywhere.

Virtue signals and leftist activism is not holiness. Look at the consequences of this. Our society is broken, atomized, people are suffering, and the death rate is going up.

Pray that our leaders repent. Pray for our brothers and sisters, particularly those who are being forced into the vaxx while pregnant.

And do not be them. Do not be like them.
