The Chosen

Tags

, , , ,

I’ll start by saying that if you haven’t heard of ‘The Chosen”, I highly recommend you watch this.

This show can be found on the VidAngel app. Season one is out now but this will be a multi-season show.

This show chronicles the story of Jesus and the apostles through all four Gospels. But this show is very different.

It’s told from the perspective of those who are followers of Jesus. It’s also told in a way that highlights Jesus’ human side. The movies that I’ve watched about Jesus and His life have shown Jesus from a pious perspective. In other words, a very serious Jesus.

“The Chosen” shows Jesus behaving as any one of us might behave. He can be seen dancing at a wedding, hugging his mother, bandaging a wound he received, and joking around with the apostles. It shows Jesus the way we think he would have been during his ministry. And it’s not all fun and games. There are definitely times where you need to have a box of tissues next to you. This show will challenge any preconceived notions you might have had about Jesus. You will also see some of the miracles that he did during the first part of his ministry.

If you ever want to find a way to evangelize to people, I think this series is it. The show is well-acted and the sets are amazing.

Before I start to ramble, please check out this series and be prepared to cry a little, laugh a little, and to have your faith renewed in a way that no other movie or show can do. If you know anyone who isn’t sure about life or this ‘Jesus thing’, show them ‘The Chosen.’ This just might change their minds.

God Bless!

#CancelNetflix

Tags

, , ,

I do have a post coming soon about the COVID-19 vaccine that is coming to a syringe near you but I felt something put on my heart to write a quick post about Netflix and the controversial film they just released called “Cuties.”

Now I have to freely admit that I haven’t actually seen this show but I’ve seen some screen grabs of it and some clips and I am certainly not liking what I’m seeing.

It’s a French film that follows 11-year old girls who are dancers. From what I’ve read, some of the scenes show them dancing erotically or twerking.

People critical of the movie say that it is ‘normalizing’ the sexualization of pre-teen girls. The Parents Television Council had earlier objections to this film. The stood by those objections with director Melissa Henson stating that the film ‘” normalizes the sexualization of little girls” and desensitizes “millions of viewers at home by asking them to be entertained by it.”‘

Here is something I found on IMDB in the Certification section under Nudity:

One child is doused with water while wearing a tiny tank top and teeny underwear that expose her butt cheeks…. child bounces as the camera focuses on breasts and child gets on all fours and grinds pelvis into floor and twerks while camera films from behind with an up angle on child’s mostly bare bottom and underwear in crack.”

Netflix says that it is a social commentary on the sexualization of pre-teen girls. Those who support the film say that it’s a beautiful picture and should be treated as such an that the marketing material and posters gave the impression that this was a film about sexualizing pre-teen girls.

Okay, Netflix…not cool. Not cool at all.

I’m not going to tell you what to watch or what decisions to make for you or your family but for my family, we are not going to watch this and we have already canceled Netflix.

Okay, I had to vent and I had to get it out there. Thanks for bearing with me on this.

God Bless!

 

Vaccines – Part 1: A Brief History

Tags

, , , ,

Vaccines have been around a lot longer than you might think.

There are stories of the Chinese inoculating their people for smallpox as far back as the 1500s. There are other stories that go all the way back to the year 200 in the year 1661, Emperor K’ang of China supported the use of inoculation, having survived smallpox as a child.

As we move through the 17th century and into the 18th century, we find many countries plagued with various outbreaks of one kind or another. These included smallpox, measles, and yellow fever.

In the early 1700s, the process of variolation was used to inoculate a person against a disease. Variolation is a procedure where the discharge from a pustule is placed into a cut of an uninfected individual. The hope was that the body would react to this and call an immune response thereby making the person immune to the actual disease. Over the years, there have been many improvements to this process. Edward Jenner was chief among those who started these improvements.

We’ve come a long way from where we used to be with regard to vaccines. The delivery method is certainly less crude and more efficient.

But for me, that’s about it.

As we move into the modern era of vaccines, many things have changed when it comes to what is actually in the needle.

In my next installment, I’m going to show some of the rather disturbing correlations between the ever-increasing number of vaccines children today receive and the number of childhood diseases that they have.

Okay, that’s it for now. I did say this post as going to be brief but I did want to at least get everyone started as to where vaccines started. Where we’re going next is a bit scary, at best.

God Bless!

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12 ESV)

The Vaccine Controversy

Tags

, , , , , ,

I thought I would start with an introductory post about vaccines.

I started laying out some of the groundwork in my earlier posts concerning the current “pandemic” that we are in. And the word pandemic is in quotes because I don’t think that this is a pandemic but more of a ‘plandemic.’

Back in 2009, we declared the H1N1 flu virus a pandemic. According to the CDC’s website, they estimated a total of 151,700 – 575,400 deaths attributed to H1N1 during the first year the virus circulated. You can read the entire post here.

There is a big difference between how governments reacted in 2009 and 2020: back in 2009 we didn’t shut down the world and its economies.

We didn’t create executive orders and mandates asking people to stay inside and wear masks when they go to the store to purchase food.

We didn’t shut down bars, restaurants, gyms, hair salons, parks, beaches, boardwalks, some retail stores, etc.

Why are we doing it now? And why is there a big push for a vaccine that we didn’t see back in 2009?

My next post will tackle the vaccine controversy and which companies are racing to be the first to find that vaccine. I’ll also touch on a new type of vaccine called mRNA that is currently the front runner.

I think this goes deeper than what I’m going to address in future posts. I might end up making a series out of this. I just need to take some time to gather my thoughts. So bear with me. More to come.

God Bless!

 

Looters, Rioters, and the Anti-Christ Spirit

Tags

, , , , ,

Note: I started to write this when the riots were front and center of the news cycle but have since started to die down. Well, there is this new area of Seattle called CHAZ. Don’t ask me what that’s all about but it does seem to be sponsored and supported by the local government.

I almost didn’t want to wade into these waters because…well, there are a number of reasons.

But I decided to go ahead anyway because I felt something (the Holy Spirit possibly?) pushing me to write.

Rioting and looting is something that isn’t foreign to most of us. We’ve seen it a number of times over the years. My earliest recollection was after the Rodney King incident in L.A.

As I sit here and type this, I recall the recent news clips and YouTube videos I’ve seen of people using bricks, trash cans, and sticks and looting stores I can only ask what question that has been asked by other YouTubers:

What have you accomplished?

What has stealing a TV from the local Bestbuy done to help further the cause of justice for the death of George Floyd? How does killing a man defending his shop bring justice to Floyd’s family? What possesses people to go out in the streets and destroy what others worked so hard to build?

And now you’re spending time tearing down statues of people such as Christopher Columbus and various Southern officers who were in the Civil War.

For what purpose? You’re not just removing a statue; you’re trying to erase history. A history that taught us that the things that happened in the south were wrong and should never have happened. By removing that history, you’re teaching future generations that it never actually occurred. You are dooming them to repeat it.

What part of you believes that all of this is right and just and true? How do acts of violence and vandalism further your cause?

And then it hit me…

As the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” (Matthew 24:37, NKJV).

The days of Noah were filled with people whose thoughts and actions were evil all of the time:

Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” (Genesis 6:5 NKJV).

I believe that there are larger forces at work here. There are humans running this evil machine but Satan is the one giving them the guidance.

If you are participating in these violent ‘protests’, you are being deceived. The Evil One wants divisiveness between whites and blacks because that’s one way that he brings down nations and people. We need to turn our focus back to God and his Word. In that, we will find all the truth we need to get out of the storm that is coming.

I know I’m probably rambling at the end but I hope you understand where I’m coming from.

God Bless.

Can the Numbers be Believed?

Tags

, , , , ,

I want to ensure everyone that the information I have presented in past blogs and will present in future blogs is meant to inform. I have been doing research on this for a while now and have come across some interesting (and somewhat alarming) information. I don’t deny that people are dying of something but I’m not convinced that it is what they say it is.

The intent of these blogs is to get people to think about this situation in a different way; to ask the question ‘what if?’

With that being said, I want to focus today’s post on the numbers that we’ve been hearing about in the news and online.

A number of models have come out predicting the number of deaths caused by this ‘virus’ but they’ve been all over the place. While I don’t have exact numbers, these models have come under scrutiny.

But, as I stated in a previous post if you want to understand why something is happening or being done simply follow the money.

And that’s what I did.

H.R. 748 was introduced in January 2019. This bill provided for coronavirus relief (okay, how did they know about the coronavirus a year ago?). Within this bill, they incorporated the language of S.3548 (introduced March 2020). Section 4409 of this bill has the following heading:

“Medicare hospital inpatient prospective payment system add-on payment for COVID–19 patients during emergency period”

From what I’ve been able to research, Medicare will pay $13,000 for each diagnosed COVID-19 case and $39,000 for each COVID-19 case where a ventilator is used.

Am I trying to say that there might be some funny business happening with the U.S. numbers? Yes, I believe that there could be. I’m not saying all hospitals are doing this but there have been interviews with doctors who have stated that hospital administrators have been pressuring doctors to declare COVID-19 deaths.

To help support what I’m writing, in March of this year the National Vital Statistics System introduced a code for COVID-19. Here are some passages from that sheet:

If the death certificate reports terms such as “probable COVID-19” or “likely COVID-19,” these terms would be assigned the new ICD code. It Is not likely that NCHS will follow up on these cases.

COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death.”

The bottom line is that, regardless of how they died, if they have COVID-19 then it’s marked down as such.

This is something that I don’t quite know how to answer. Could it have something to do with money? Certainly. Could there be something more nefarious to all of this? Most definitely.

I think I’ll stop here. If I think of something for this post that I missed, I will update it. Now that Bill Gates is pushing for 7 billion vaccines, I think vaccines will be my next topic.

Remember that God is always with us and will always be with us. We have shelter in Him.

God Bless!

Quarantined in New Jersey: Day 45

Tags

, , , , , ,

I guess this will be my ‘need to vent a little’ post.

The governor of New Jersey just announced that the ‘stay at home’ order will be in place indefinitely.

I am so over this right now.

It’s not the worse thing in the world to be working from home. I have all the creature comforts here. I can get up when I need to and grab something out of the fridge when I want to or I can stop for a few minutes and watch some TV as a break. I can also take a walk around outside as time permits.

But honestly, it’s starting to not be enough. And I think a lot of you out there can sympathize with me.

All of this is showing me that I don’t think I can work from home permanently. While I can do it during these times of uncertainty, I’m not sure I could do it in a full-time scenario.

I can’t help but think about the businesses that are suffering because of the lockdown situation. There are a number of Chinese restaurants in our area that are completely closed. I don’t know the reasons why but it’s sad just the same. We are doing our best to support any restaurants that are offering take-out or delivery. We are also thinking about ordering take-out from some of our favorite restaurants in our old neighborhood. Fortunately, they aren’t that far away.

Anyway, I thought I would make this a more light-hearted post than I normally do. I do have some other topics I’m researching that are all about the COVID-19 deaths and the push for a vaccine (there’s information about the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation).

I want to add that I’m not trying to scare anyone or push what some people might term ‘fear porn.’ I want to bring to light information that the mainstream media doesn’t report.

Keep your heads up and your spirits high and make sure that you are reaching out to Jesus if you are feeling down. He is always there to comfort you and give you strength. And you can always comment on my blog if you need someplace to vent.

God Bless!

Bill Gates, Vaccines, and the Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx Connection

Tags

, , , ,

I’ve always said that if you want to figure out what someone is up to, just follow the money.

By that I mean, if someone is doing something that could make them a tidy sum of money then that’s why they’re doing it.

And so we come to the subject of today’s post: Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx’s connections to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

It comes as no surprise that there was talk of a vaccine within weeks of the announcement of a ‘global pandemic.’ And at the forefront was Bill Gates. Now, I keep asking myself how the Microsoft guy is suddenly the go-to guy when it comes to vaccines. As I watched an interview Bill Gates did with CNN’s Sanjay Gupta, I couldn’t help but notice how Dr. Gupta seemed to be in complete agreement with Gates on everything he was saying, as if Gates was the only expert in the room.

But I digress…

The whole point of this post is that there is money to be made and the three people I mentioned have a stake in it.

Some patients started using cholorquine (an anti-malaria drug) with good results. In an article published on the website yournews.com, Bill Gates commented the following about the use of cholorquine:

“There are a lot of therapeutic drugs being examined. This is one of many but it is not proven. If it works we will need to make sure the finite supplies are held for the patients who need it most. We have a study going on to figure this out. We also have a screening effort to look at all the ideas for Therapeutics because the number being proposed is very large and only the most promising should be tried in patients. China was testing some things but now they have so few cases that that testing needs to move to other locations.”

Bill Gates has always been a strong proponent of vaccines. Now, let me introduce you to Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Dr. Anthony Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. He has praised the company Moderna for their efforts in creating a coronavirus vaccine.

Now here is where it gets interesting.

Taken from the same article is the following:

Gates Foundation money is backing vaccine development on every front. Inovio Pharmaceuticals of Pennsylvania received $9 million from the Gates-backed CEPI, Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, to develop a vaccine, INO-4800, which is about to test on humans in April, a suspiciously rapid time frame. In addition the Gates Foundation just gave the company an added $5 million to develop a proprietary smart device for intradermal delivery of the new vaccine.

In addition Gates Foundation monies via CEPI are financing development of a radical new vaccine method known as messengerRNA or mRNA.

They are co-funding the Cambridge, Massachusetts biotech company, Moderna Inc., to develop a vaccine against the Wuhan novel coronavirus, now called SARS-CoV-2. Moderna’s other partner is the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Head of NIAID is Dr. Anthony Fauci, the person at the center of the Trump Administration virus emergency response. Notable about the Fauci-Gates Moderna coronavirus vaccine, mRNA-1273, is that it has been rolled out in a matter of weeks, not years, and on February 24 went directly to Fauci’s NIH for tests on human guinea pigs, not on mice as normal. Moderna’s chief medical adviser, Tal Zaks, argued, “I don’t think proving this in an animal model is on the critical path to getting this to a clinical trial…” “

As I said earlier, there is big money to be made in vaccines.

Before this gets too long, I want to add the Deborah Birx connection.

Deborah Birx sits on the Board of the Global Fund. This fund happens to be heavily funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. She has also come under heavy criticism for using a disputed coronavirus model that was created by the University of Washington’s IMHE project (funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation).

On a side note, her medical license in the state of Pennsylvania expired in 2014.

Okay, I will end this here. Please take the time to read through this. Here is the link to the source material for this post: The Anthony Fauci/Bill Gates Connection

I am hoping to provide more information to all of you about vaccines and the harm they’ve caused and continue to cause.

God Bless!

 

 

COVID-19 ‘Pandemic’ and it’s Aftermath

Tags

, , , , , , ,

I know I put the word pandemic in quotes but it’s my own personal belief that this is a premature classification for something that is, so far, proving to be less deadly than the flu.

That being said, I started to think about the people who are affected by this who aren’t sick. In New Jersey, they have categorized businesses into essential and non-essential. The non-essential businesses have to close. If they offer food, then they can do take-out and delivery.

I started to feel bad for the non-essential businesses.

I’m thinking about the businesses that are affected by this. The people who might own the picture frame shop down the street that just gets by on the customers who come in; the coffee shop around the corner that also has some food items but they don’t offer delivery; the flower shop or the bakery or the jewelry store.

In my home state of New Jersey, they are considered to be non-essential. Where are they going to get the money to pay bills when they don’t have any income? If this goes on for much longer, you are going to see these businesses close for good.

I’m also thinking about the people who are in the hospital and can’t receive visitors. They’re sitting there alone (and maybe scared), unable to have their family come and see them. For some, this might be the last time they’ll see their family.

Or the funerals that no one can have when their loved one passes on. How can anyone get together and grieve for their loss when they aren’t allowed to get together in groups?

Or what about the people who believe that they can’t see family members because they think they can’t leave the house?

I think you get the picture.

We’re living in a world of unknowns.

We have no idea when everything will start to open back up again. We don’t know if our favorite pizza shop will survive this lockdown. We don’t know where this will all be in one or two months. Is it going to get worse? Will we be told not to leave our houses for any reason at all?

Only time will tell where the government wants to take this next. For now, all we can do is wait and see.

Please remember to always pray and keep Jesus near. He is the only one who can get us out of this. Prayer is a very powerful tool.

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual host of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12)

God Bless!

 

Coronavirus: Working from Home Week Two

Tags

, , , , ,

I thought it would be great to work from home.

I mean, I’ve spent the last 22 years driving into the same office, day after day. Now I get to work from home until at least April 15th. How cool is that?!

Let me say that it’s not that cool.

Yes, it does have its perks. I get to work from home and have all the creature comforts of being here. I don’t have to worry about wear and tear on my car. And I’m saving on gas as well. And I don’t have to worry about running out to grab lunch or anything like that as the refrigerator is about 10 feet away from where I’m working.

Other than the occasional walk outside around the neighborhood, I’ve pretty much been in the house.

Working does keep me busy. Being in management, I’m attending more meetings now than I did before I became a manager. And I’ve got 6 people reporting to me who didn’t report to me before so I have their workload I need to manage as well.

But the one thing I keep asking myself is this: is this all really necessary?

And by that, I mean, is it really necessary to employ a ‘stay-in-place’ strategy?

In New Jersey, they are recommending that we don’t leave our house for fear that we might spread the virus. But we can go to the grocery store or get gas or go to the liquor store and the like to get what we need (so much for social distancing here).

As I stated in a previous post, the media is spreading fear and the public is buying into it. The following passage was taken from the New England Journal of Medicine on March 26th. It was a report published by Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is the leading medical advisor to President Trump:

“In another article in the Journal, Guan et al. report mortality of 1.4% among 1099 patients with laboratory-confirmed Covid-19; these patients had a wide spectrum of disease severity, If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%.

This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%)  or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to sSARS or MERS, which had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36% respectively.”

This needs to get out in the open for everyone to read. Based on the evidence, above, this is a disease that is more like the current flu that people experience every year.

So why the lockdown? Why the social distancing? There’s more to it then you think and I hope to delve into that in my next blog.

For now, always keep your eyes on Jesus. He is our hope and our salvation. He will see us through this storm.

God Bless!
