3 December 2021: Pureblood apartheid.

Last night I waw a new sign, on a dairy in Clyde. It siad that there would be no entry without a vaccine pass. My mother in law phoned and said that her church is going to the pub for lunch next week. Not without a vaccine pass, at the pain of the business having a 12 000 fine or six months imprisonment. This is going to bite really quickly. The one person on the health board quo questioned this has resigned, an d the one councillor who is arguing for human rights can no longer enter the building.

We now have apartheid: purebood and the vaxxed. I despise this. I do not care about that someone is vaccinatioed. Many have been decieved. Many will fall off the progreamme. But the government has doubled down.

Dunedin city councillor Lee Vandervis says his ability to fulfil his duties will be severely impacted by the decision to bar the unvaccinated from council properties.

The council yesterday announced a vaccine pass would be required by people entering its public facilities from today, the mandate extending to members of the public, council staff and elected members alike.

Cr Vandervis said he was the only councillor who was not yet vaccinated, and as a result had been subject to suppression and now the threat of physical exclusion.

He had already had issues with being cut off and muted in virtual council meetings since the pandemic began, he said.

“Just being able to do things remotely and accepting that the DCC has the power to do what they’re currently doing are things that I do not believe are in the public interest.”

Cr Vandervis said democracy had been under fire for some time. He cited items from the Bill of Rights related to the right to refuse medical treatment, the right to freedom of speech, the right to lawful assembly and the right to justice.

“All of these have been put under a very black cloud with this Government, and the DCC seems to be all too ready to follow suit.”

Council chief executive Sandy Graham said measures, such as remote meeting access, were being put in place to ensure elected officials without vaccine passes could continue to perform their duties.

The question is why, and the answer is fear. People are afraid that they will die from the virus, which is not that likely. They have been told that getting the jab is a passport to freedom. They will get their summer back. What I am seeing is that Christmas and New Year celebrations are cancelled, the local fesivals in Otago are gone, and even trail runs such as the 55 km three peaks are only open if you have a pass.

The second reason people are getting vaccinated is so they can study and work and keep playing sport. Many people have mortgages to pay The unvaccinated are not welcome in Universities.

The Pureblood are nthe new nonconformists.

Not all are of Christ, but a fair number are: the churches are being shredded on this issue, as those who promote this aprarheid are finding it is not merely the pureblood who are lgoing underground, but those who argue that lthe church should be freely open to all, not just the unvaxxed.

We are not to fear. We are not to assume that the elite are of God. And we should have to attitude of Paul. TO live is Christ, and to die is Vain.

Malachi 3:13-18

13 “Your words have been hard against me, says the Lord. But you say, ‘How have we spoken against you?’ 14 You have said, ‘It is vain to serve God. What is the profit of our keeping his charge or of walking as in mourning before the Lord of hosts? 15 And now we call the arrogant blessed. Evildoers not only prosper but they put God to the test and they escape.’”

16 Then those who feared the Lord spoke with one another. The Lord paid attention and heard them, and a book of remembrance was written before him of those who feared the Lord and esteemed his name. 17 “They shall be mine, says the Lord of hosts, in the day when I make up my treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him. 18 Then once more you shall see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve him.

Philippians 1:18-26

18 What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretence or in truth, Christ is proclaimed, and in that I rejoice.

Yes, and I will rejoice, 19 for I know that through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ this will turn out for my deliverance, 20 as it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honoured in my body, whether by life or by death. 21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. 22 If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labour for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell. 23 I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better. 24 But to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account. 25 Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith, 26 so that in me you may have ample cause to glory in Christ Jesus, because of my coming to you again.

This is a time when the enemies of the true, the good, the beautiful are in power and they hate anything of Christ. They want everything enslaved, controlled, and micromanaged. As usual, this is being done at a cost to freedom, to wealth, and sadly, for some their very lives.

Standing against the weaponized state will cost you. The state does not care that much about your vaccinated state either. They want your hehaviour shaped into carrying passes and nothing your behavhour.

And they have shut up society as strongly ast the Green run DCC has banned people from their parks.

We can protest. We can say that the evidence does not support this. We can take this to court. We should do all of these things.

But until we consider, a in the time of Maladhi, that our rejection of God has consequences, and re repent, we will not be seeign healing of our nation.

Should we make a distunction between right and wrong? Yes. Tolerance has been used as a wedge for tyranny.

Should we pray for our leaders and do good? Yes. Because God commands it. In obeying the clear word of God there is a way through this, so that in life or death we can glorify God.

For we are the people of Love, and they are the people of fear. Perfect love will drive out fear, and God will be glorified.
