The real Covid conspiracy theory – 12 straight facts

BY way of clarifying my thoughts in publishing my approach to conspiracy theories and the so-called ‘pandemic’, Jonathan Ely has posted a robust, factual exposition at Spirit Body Soul on the theories national ‘authorities’ dictate. My friend of many years writes:

‘Was just debating with someone who accused me of believing conspiracies. So I said to him that he is the conspiracy theorist because he does this:

1. Ignores over 15,000 eminent doctors scientists and epidemiologists, who signed the Great Barrington Declaration (GBD).

2. Ignores the WHO who tell you lockdowns only cause poverty.

3. Relies upon hypocritical Neil Ferguson whose models have totally and utterly failed many times. [He’s infamous for the near-collapse of the farming industry over BSE or ‘mad-cow disease’. RB]

4. Relies on Vallance who has massive vested interests in vaccine companies.

5. Ignores what manufacturers and inventors of the PCR test tell you about their machine not being for diagnostic purposes and which produce a high proportion of false positives.

6. Believes Matt Hancock when he has been proven to tell lies multiple times.

7. Has totally overreacted to a virus that now is about the 24th killer, less than 2% of all deaths.

8. Wants to spend billions to eradicate a virus that we won’t succeed in eradicating, by destroying economies, NHS, people’s mental health and ultimately killing lots of people in the process.

9. Wants to be tested and traced by a crazy system that they are spending billions on making the discredited Serco company rich.

10. Wants a tracking app that has multiple technical issues and has been ill-thought out.

11. You want lots of our freedoms, fun and social contact removed just to protect from <2% of deaths.

12. Wants a vaccine that won’t have been properly tested, that won’t work in many cases, that has significant side effects, for which there is no indemnity against the manufacturers.’

‘Second Wave’ (RB)

BUT what about this ‘second wave’ that’s causing another series of lockdowns across the UK and Europe? Now IF the claimed statistics and predictions are true, the actual cause and problems could have arisen because Covid-19 is a bio-weapon, as blogged in some depth here and here.

In my humble opinion there’s also a strong possibility the prolonged wearing of masks has contributed significantly to this second wave, which is not abnormal in epidemics.

I’m aware there’s ongoing deep debate within the scientific community, but you may wish to read this from pages 10-11 of Dr Jim Meehan’s 47-page, illuminating, easy-to-read paper [NB: pp 14-19 cover in technical depth ‘The Fallacious Argument “Well if masks don’t work then why do surgeons wear them?“]  Click title to read in full:

An Evidence-based Scientific Analysis of Why Masks are Ineffective, Unnecessary and Harmful 

Dr. Russell Blaylock (one of many sources Dr Meehan quotes), a nationally recognized board-certified neurosurgeon, health practitioner, author, and lecturer warns that not only do face masks fail to protect the healthy from getting sick, but they also create serious health risks to the wearer.

  • Dr. Russell Blaylock, Blaylock: Face Masks Pose Serious Risks To The Healthy, Technocracy News & Trends, (posted May 11, 2020).
  • [Recent studies] found that about a third of the [healthcare] workers developed headaches with use of the mask, most had pre-existing headaches that were worsened by the mask wearing, and 60% required pain medications for relief. As to the cause of the headaches, while straps and pressure from the mask could be causative, the bulk of the evidence points toward hypoxia and/or hypercapnia as the cause. That is, a reduction in blood oxygenation (hypoxia) or an elevation in blood C02 – carbon dioxide (hypercapnia).
  • It is known that the N95 mask, if worn for hours, can reduce blood oxygenation as much as 20%, which can lead to a loss of consciousness.
  • The importance of these findings is that a drop in oxygen levels (hypoxia) is associated with an impairment in immunity. Studies have shown that hypoxia can inhibit the type of main immune cells used to fight viral infections called the CD4+ T-lymphocyte.
  • This occurs because the hypoxia increases the level of a compound called hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1), which inhibits T-lymphocytes and stimulates a powerful immune inhibitor cell called the Tregs.
  • This sets the stage for contracting any infection, including COVID-19 and making the consequences of that infection much graver. In essence, your mask may very well put you at an increased risk of infections and if so, having a much worse outcome

Trump’s telling UN there’s’no right to abortion’ is suitable follow-on to his giving Christ glory in public

Following Donald Trump’s giving glory to Jesus Christ, I want to draw attention to the fact that Obama, and Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, made receipt of US financial aid conditional upon a nation introducing legislation to allow abortions. This is the modern equivalent of the abomination of child sacrifice in worship of Molech!

Covid-19 ‘pandemic’: scientific and legal facts expose ‘crimes against humanity’ (F/P #10.15)

CONSPIRACY THEORY?

A commentator on a Facebook item about the effect of Covid-19 and lockdowns took me to task after having inserted a link to my post on the scandalous scientific fraud exposed by Dr Yan’s team of virologists. He pointed to an article about why it’s better for Christians to avoid conspiracy theories. However, that team’s research and finding do not fall in that category – but was I expecting too much for a critic to have read their full report before leveling any judgement?? Also, we believers DO need to use our rational, intellectual capabilities for examining issues – after all we’re to be judges in Father’s Kingdom.

BRIEF RECAP

For the clarification of newer readers and visitors here, a few weeks ago I blogged in Checking up on falsehoods about Covid-19 that I do not have time for conspiracy theories – but note that some do make valid arguments. However, after asking the Lord about the origin of Covid-19 (He replied: “It is man-made”), I’m aware of the increase in diabolical schemes to prevent what the Lord’s doing prior to His Return.

Also, as mentioned mid-June when introducing Wanda Alger’s We’re Being Lied To…! her warning wisely points to the course church leaders should now be taking to enable the Bride of Christ prepare for ruling and reigning with Him. Furthermore, on 2nd April in Fulfilled Prophecy #10.10 Exposure of Lies and Corruption Includes China, Iran I covered prophet Tomi Arayomi on “The Biggest Lie You Never Heard”, in which he separated the facts from conjecture.

SOME FACTS

Although primarily focused upon the prophetic, my approach is empirical in checking out facts as far as possible. This means in addition to weighing and testing prophecy, I try to monitor it for performance as and when possible within personal time constraints. Thus, my ‘peripheral’ blogs on the growing conjunction between the Bible and science (see Scripture & Science), as well as cataloguing over 200 examples of prophecies coming to pass, or where events indicate they’re approaching fulfillment (Prophecies-Fulfilled).

RECENT NEWS

Therefore, and especially for my readers who are not on Facebook and unable to visit the prolific monitoring site I recommend, here’s some entries from Spirit, Body, Soul and a few others. To read in full please use browser’s search facility. (They were collected yesterday but got overtaken by higher priority of prophecies on America.)

First, a professionally detailed item by Ramola D, an American investigative journalist, grabbed my attention and, be warned, its source material on the New World Order makes unsettling reading:

Covid-19: Doctors speak out across the world — Red Sky in the Morning

Three weeks ago I intended re-blogging this by Joanne Rolston along with clippings I’d collected relating to the UK, but it got waylaid by other material. Now, however, it well serves as an introduction to a couple of other very informative items…

I wondered how the so-called Covid-19 pandemic is affecting the medical profession.  Doctors are bound by the Hippocratic Oath not to cause harm their patients. For example, giving untested and possibly harmful vaccines that may injure them. Doctors worried about Covid treatment and vaccines are speaking out, but they’re not being heard by the media. […]

Major expose of ‘large-scale, organized scientific fraud’ in creating Covid-19 (F/P #10.13 cont’d)

Remember these screenshots?

Further to my updates of 6 May, 8 June, 15 July, 19 August and 17 September upon hearing on 24 March the Lord confirm that Covid-19 is a “man-made virus”; news of the full report promised in Dr Yan’s censored interview with Tucker Carlson lies buried in the depths of Friday’s Koenig’s Eye View from the White House, which reads:

Whistleblower releases second paper alleging COVID-19 is “unrestricted bioweapon” – Zero Hedge

Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese virologist (MD, PhD) who worked in a WHO reference lab and fled her position at the University of Hong Kong, has published a second co-authored report, alleging that SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19, was not only created in a Wuhan lab, but is also an “unrestricted bioweapon” which was intentionally released.

The paper reads, “We used biological evidence and in-depth analyses to show that SARS-CoV-2 must be a laboratory product, which was created by using a template virus (ZC45/ZXC21) owned by military research laboratories under the control of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) government,”

This paper’s opening ‘Abstract,’ or summation, reads:

SARS-CoV-2 IS AN UNRESTRICTED BIOWEAPON: A TRUTH REVEALED THROUGH UNCOVERING A LARGE-SCALE, ORGANIZED SCIENTIFIC FRAUD

Yan, Li-MengKang, ShuGuan, JieHu, Shanchang

(October 8, 2020 – emphases RB.)

‘Two possibilities should be considered for the origin of SARS-CoV-2 [‘causative agent of the Covid-19 pandemic’ – Introduction]: natural evolution or laboratory creation.

In our earlier report titled “Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synthetic Route” [here], we disproved the possibility of SARS-CoV-2 arising naturally through evolution and instead proved that SARS-CoV-2 must have been a product of laboratory modification. Despite this and similar efforts, the laboratory creation theory continues to be downplayed or even diminished. This is fundamentally because the natural origin theory remains supported by several novel coronaviruses published after the start of the outbreak.

‘These viruses (the RaTG13 bat coronavirus, a series of pangolin coronaviruses, and the RmYN02 bat coronavirus) reportedly share high sequence homology with SARS-CoV-2 and have altogether constructed a seemingly plausible pathway for the natural evolution of SARS-CoV-2. Here, however, we use in-depth analyses of the available data and literature to prove that these novel animal coronaviruses do not exist in nature and their sequences have been fabricated. In addition, we also offer our insights on the hypothesis that SARS-CoV-2 may have originated naturally from a coronavirus that infected the Mojiang miners. 

‘Revelation of these virus fabrications renders the natural origin theory unfounded. It also strengthens our earlier assertion that SARS-CoV-2 is a product of laboratory modification, which can be created in approximately six months using a template virus owned by a laboratory of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). The fact that data fabrications were used to cover up the true origin of SARS-CoV-2 further implies that the laboratory modification here is beyond simple gain-of-function research. 

‘The scale and the coordinated nature of this scientific fraud signifies the degree of corruption in the fields of academic research and public health. As a result of such corruption, damages have been made both to the reputation of the scientific community and to the well-being of the global community. 

‘Importantly, while SARS-CoV-2 meets the criteria of a bioweapon specified by the PLA, its impact is well beyond what is conceived for a typical bioweapon. In addition, records indicate that the unleashing of this weaponized pathogen should (could-RB) have been intentional rather than accidental.

‘We therefore define SARS-CoV-2 as an Unrestricted Bioweapon and the current pandemic a result of Unrestricted Biowarfare. We further suggest investigations should be carried out on the suspected government and individuals and the responsible ones be held accountable for this brutal attack on the global community.’

Trump with Covid-19 and global scientific opinion divided – is it coincidence or ‘God-incidence’?

In blogging briefly on the Belgian medical professionals’ open letter expressing deep concern over their governments’ handling of Covid-19 (Checking up on falsehoods… refers), I reiterated that I don’t have time for checking out conspiracy theories – and that goes for the widespread claims about scientists’ advice to our Prime Minister (some of which do make valid arguments).  Life’s busy enough writing and trying to keep up with events without additional on-screen activity – and we never waste time with the British Brainwashing Cult!!

Hence, re-blogging We Are Being Lied To by Wanda Alger and recommending anyone wanting to keep tabs on the issue to visit Spirit-Body-Soul (Facebook), where Jonathan Ely monitors a myriad of news sources.

However, I believe it is well to keep you, my reader, informed as and when appropriate, time allowing.

The UK Press, especially the Telegraph’s journalists, are highly sceptical of ministerial handling of the Covid-19 issue; as Daily Mail emphasises on Wednesday’s front-page:

It turns out that whilst President Trump was in hospital with Covid-19 on Sunday 4th October, a declaration signed by thousands of medical and public health scientists and medical practitioners was issued in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, as shown below (click image to read in full) – a noteworthy coincidence is it not?

ON TOP OF THAT, there’s more disconcerting news in the UK, as science editor Sarah Knapton reports today (emphases mine):

Click for link to read article in full

‘A re-analysis of the Imperial University modelling that led to lockdown in March shows shutting schools and preventing youngsters from mingling may have had the counter-intuitive effect of actually killing more people.

‘In a study published in the BMJ, Edinburgh University (7 October) predicted that over the entire course of the pandemic, keeping children out of classrooms would increase deaths by between 80,000 and 95,000. Likewise, social distancing of everyone, rather than just the over-70s, could cost between 149,000 and 178,000 lives.

‘Experts say the virus was able to spread faster to vulnerable people once lockdown measures were introduced than if some level of immunity had been allowed to build up in the young....

‘The Government locked down the country after Imperial modelling showed that 500,000 people could die and the NHS would be overwhelmed.

‘But Imperial had also predicted that no mitigation strategy could lower deaths to fewer than 200,000 without a vaccine, and suppressing the virus would merely delay an even deadlier resurgence.

‘The authors of the new paper, who rediscovered the figures in their reappraisal, said the Government appeared to have chosen to protect the NHS in the short term, rather than save lives throughout the whole epidemic. Although it reduced peak demand for ICU beds, it prolonged the epidemic, resulting in more long-term Covid-19 deaths…’

NB (RB): THESE SCENARIOS WERE KNOWN IN MARCH 2020 BUT IGNORED!! 

PS. Also see Sarah’s report of yesterday: Could children have been our secret weapon against coronavirus?

PPS. see Prof Karol Sikora, The Government’s bid to smear critics – as in favour of ‘letting the virus rip’ – is disgusting!

Checking up on falsehoods about Covid-19

Click image to read DOCS4 Open Letter in full

As mentioned mid-June when introducing Wanda Alger’s We’re Being Lied To! Are You Watching the Spirit or the Screen?, I don’t have time for checking conspiracy theories in any depth – some of which do make valid arguments. However, since seeking the Lord about the origin of Covid-19 (He replied: “It is man-made”), I’m aware of the increase in diabolical schemes to prevent what the Lord’s doing prior to His Return. (Wanda’s stark warning wisely points to the course church leaders should now be taking to enable the Bride of Christ prepare for ruling and reigning with Him.)

On 2nd April in Fulfilled Prophecy #10.10 Exposure of Lies and Corruption Includes China, Iran I covered prophet Tomi Arayomi on “The Biggest Lie You Never Heard”, in which he separated the facts from conjecture.

Therefore, and especially in view of what I heard by way of its 5th and most absolute validation from one of the top Chinese virologists at the top coronavirus lab in the world, and who was “deeply investigating in secret from the early beginning of this outbreak”, it is important to draw my readers’ attention to issues of great public concern.

In view of its gravity, I don’t hesitate to reiterate Dr Li-Meng Yan’s interview in which she confirms Covid-19 is NOT from nature but created in the lab to target humans, and intentionally spread globally to create damage.

Those who’ve been reading this blog since the EU Referendum may recall my strong recommendation to visit Jonathan Ely’s Why Leave The EU? (Facebook) where he maintains a journal of relevant news on Brexit.

Similarly, he’s assiduously logged news data on Spirit Body Soul (Facebook), and its  website has a highly informative reference page, all about Coronavirus.   

It is from the first that I noticed the above, opening DOCS4 item which reads as follows:

‘We, Belgian doctors and health professionals, wish to express our serious concern about the evolution of the situation in the recent months surrounding the outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. We call on politicians to be independently and critically informed in the decision-making process and in the compulsory implementation of corona-measures. We ask for an open debate, where all experts are represented without any form of censorship. After the initial panic surrounding covid-19, the objective facts now show a completely different picture – there is no medical justification for any emergency policy anymore.
The current crisis management has become totally disproportionate and causes more damage than it does any good.
We call for an end to all measures and ask for an immediate restoration of our normal democratic governance and legal structures and of all our civil liberties.’

As the Belgians, our erstwhile EU protagonists, are making a serious petition to their leaders then shouldn’t we Brits challenge government decision?

I could quote many other sources, but here’s Fraser Nelson on Anchorless Boris…:

‘So how to find a plan? This takes us to the biggest missing ingredient in the Covid debate: evidence. Most of those around Whitty are firm believers in lockdown. If it is so effective, it ought not to be hard to publish evidence proving this point. There have been no end of Covid experiments world over, so we should by now know far more about what works and what does not. But the reports that are being used by the Covid response team are still a closely guarded secret. I’m told, for example, that the Government is sitting on a study that will prove, beyond all reasonable doubt, that local lockdowns work.’

Exposure of lies continues with 5th validation of Covid-19 being man-made and “intentionally” released! (F/P #121.10-5 & #10.13 cont’d)

Discussions and prophecies of 6-months ago on the pandemic have been at the back of my mind for the past week or so. Maybe that prompted me after waking today to wonder if there’s been any news of Dr Li-Meng Yan’s revelations, as in my blog of mid-July on Fulfilled Prophecy #10.13 – more exposure of Covid-19 culpability, viz:

Therefore, I was pleasantly surprised (but perhaps shouldn’t be by now!) after arriving at my desk for this pre-weekend blogging day. On checking one of the pc’s browser tabs I noticed the third item in this news from USA:

Click on article’s headline to read in full and watch interview where Dr Yan stresses virus is NOT from nature but created to target humans – a bio-weapon!

On Tuesday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson specifically asked Dr. Li-Meng Yan,

‘whether she believed the Chinese Communist Party released the virus “on purpose.” “Yes, of course, it’s intentionally,” she responded on Tucker Carlson Tonight. Yan said more evidence would be released but pointed to her own high-ranking position at a World Health Organization reference lab as a reason to trust her allegation…

I work[ed] in the WHO reference lab, which is the top coronavirus lab in the world, in the University of Hong Kong. And the thing is, I get deeply into such investigation in secret from the early beginning of this outbreak. I had my intelligence because I also get my own unit network in China, involved [in] the hospital … also I work with the top corona[virus] virologist in the world,” she said…

“So, together with my experience, I can tell you this is created in the lab… and also, spread to the world to create damage..

‘Yan said she was one of the first scientists in the world to study the novel coronavirus, fled China and currently fears retaliation. She was allegedly asked by her supervisor at the University/WHO reference lab, Dr. Leo Poon, in 2019 to look into the odd cluster of SARS-like cases coming out of mainland China at the end of December 2019…’

This makes the 5th occasion I’ve seen news headlines validating the answer I believe the Lord gave me when, on retiring to bed on 23rd March, I wanted to know Covid-19’s origin and whether He’d sent this global pestilence. He answered upon my awaking; “It’s man-made!”

On the Mysteries of the Kingdom: God-incidence #2 – 50 years-apart testimonies meet at John’s Gospel!

PREFACE: Again, what I wrote on a Wednesday got confirmed within hours! (Previous)

After drafting this yesterday afternoon, I was ‘God-smacked’ and undone upon hearing a young man of 22 years expressing similar sentiments about the Church as I had at that age and earlier. And upon my reading out my references to scripture, he stunned me by saying the Lord’s been drawing his attention to the verses that strongly affected me!  Having graduated from Bible college, he’s about to plant a new church in London and apply that scripture; whereas over 50 years ago I got led astray through a personal perception. Today’s young apostolic church-planter is the son of the leader whom I’d already mentioned in the opening sentence below!!  Praise You Lord for such God-incidence – awesome!

Entitled ‘The importance of holy mysteries to Christian discipleship and prophecy,’ I didn’t anticipate this draft’s prophetic nature and later realised it’s better published in two parts under a fresh title.

Earlier this year a prophetic leader of new church had a picture for me during a ‘refresh’ coffee morning. Seeing a megaphone turn into a laser, he said it’s time for my blogging to move from ‘broad-brush’ coverage to a narrower, more incisive focus.  Hence, the fewer re-blogs of others’ prophecies unless they’re related to what I already know or can sense (thus confirmations or validations as ‘jigsaw pieces’ and ‘God-incidences’), or else are of especial significance.

Therefore as done recently, my personally-related introductions to re-blogs of others’ prophetic material. The next, by Thomas Harry, is directly relevant to my journey and  necessitates this full introductory blog to prepare our understanding of what Jesus is telling today’s Church.  As in #1, this comes with Thomas’ blessing for my action.

THE MYSTERIES OF THE KINGDOM

First and foremost, we need to consider what ‘mystery’ means in the Word of God:

His disciples came to Jesus and said, “Why do You speak to them in parables?” and He replied, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For whoever has, to him (and her) more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. Therefore, I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand…” (Matthew 13:10-13 NKJV)

The New Spirit-Filled Study Bible provides this definition:

‘Mystery’, Greek ‘musterion’ (moos-tay-ree-on; Strongs #3466). From mueo, “to initiate into the mysteries”, hence a secret known only to the initiated, something hidden requiring special revelation. In the NT the word denotes something that people could never know by their own understanding and that demands a revelation from God. The secret thoughts, plans and dispensations of God remain hidden from unregenerate mankind, but are revealed to all believers. In non-biblical Greek musterion is knowledge withheld, concealed or silenced. In biblical Greek it is truth revealed (Col 1:26). NT musterion focuses upon Christ’s sinless life, atoning death, powerful resurrection and dynamic ascension.’

Jesus’ meaning of ‘mysteries’ is implicit in Apostle Paul’s writing to the church in Corinth on the western side of the isthmus between mainland Greece and the Peloponnese peninsular:

‘Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God‘ (1Cor 4:1)…‘And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing’ (1Cor 13.2)…’For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries.’ (1 Cor 14.2)

References to ‘mystery’ appear nearly two dozen times, again mainly by Paul plus a few in The Apocalypse.  BUT note there are no references to either variant of the word in the Old Testament – so it appears this reference and related teaching were reserved only for new revelations that Jesus brought from our heavenly Father and God.

Moreover, that differential between Testaments emphasises a divine origin of especially reserved knowledge and revelation compared to that claimed for the supposed mystery schools of pagan religions, like those of ancient Egypt.

In my humble opinion, the meaning of ‘holy mystery’ is little understood and appreciated – perhaps even by those well-grounded in scripture – but is slowly improving as a result of the increasing interest in the prophetic.

As Biblical and anointed modern prophecy are dovetailing in these End-times, that state of awareness needs to change up a gear or two. Thus, all earnest followers of Jesus need to dive deeper into His living waters to be immersed in His mysteries.

Yet we do need to be wise and careful, and learning of the error in my own searching for those mysteries before I was blessed to be born-again may be a warning and help.

A PRE-CHRISTIAN JOURNEY

Readers of the two recent postings on the ‘God-incidental’ 21st anniversary of the solar eclipse of 1999 and ‘GPS #50’ on Luke 21 and the ‘Bridge over The Pond’ may recall the reference to my mother’s Catholic Sunday Missal.

When I was a youngster she’d take me to Sunday mass, yet I wasn’t sent to a Catholic school. The Latin liturgy was rather a bore but I began to pay attention to the readings in English and how they related to the Sunday’s picture in the Missal.

[NB: Next 2 paragraphs were read aloud to the young church-planter – Preface refers]

I recall thinking it must have been awesome to have been around Jesus and seen all He said and did. Also, two especially significant verses heard or read in mother’s book got embedded into my brain and, although buried in the unconscious, never got overwritten.

One was of Jesus telling his disciples they’d do greater works than He was doing! The other was by one of His closest followers and who surmised at the close of his Gospel account:If everything He’d done was written down there wouldn’t be enough room in the world to contain the books!’  (John 14:12 and 21:25)

In view of that eye-witness account and modern churches’ failure in the greater works, plus misrepresentation of their founder, I became convinced a lot of what Jesus taught had been lost, or even suppressed, by the early church. The truth must be out there somewhere, and so I decided to investigate and search it out for myself.

Next, having learned about the Western esoteric tradition, I was attracted at 21 years of age to a society that published books on the ‘mystical life’ and ‘secret doctrines’ of Jesus, thus claiming He was one of many perfected ‘masters’! Their claims were based upon Jesus introducing His disciples to the ‘mysteries’ – including reincarnation (Elijah coming as John the Baptist). Supposedly, these secret teachings continued down through the centuries in the practice of Gnosticism, the early Church’s great opponent that attracted false teachers and prophets. Gnostics claimed their initiation into the ‘mysteries’ brought them special revelations and wisdom, thereby setting them above ordinary followers of Jesus, as well as engendering all sorts of heretical theologies.

So, as a young man I got enticed and ensnared in the devil’s domain but only through the grace of Jesus Christ’s personal intervention was I brought into His Kingdom. He put me in a church that gave me a good grounding in scripture and pointing me in the right for receiving deliverance from the evil one. That’s another story, as outlined in Jesus Freed Me!

Having been immersed in that non-Christian, esoteric knowledge, I can attest that the difference between that deceptive discipline and holy revelations from the Lord is like the contrast between His Light and the devil’s darkness.

Born-again Christians have a personal, direct relationship with Jesus and so we can  hear His voice ourselves, and receive and operate in gifts from the Holy Spirit. Even so, all we perceive from Father, Son and Holy Spirit is to be weighed and tested against the plumb-line of the scriptures.

In the next post (scheduled for tomorrow) Revd Thomas Harry, senior leader of Falkirk Full Gospel Church, brings anointed teaching on “several scriptures that will turn our thinking upside down, simply by rightly dividing the Word of truth, by interpreting scripture by using scripture…to give believers a sample of where God is taking this generation….”

On the Mysteries of the Kingdom: God-incidence #1 – maths in scripture!

Having seen another profound paper from pastor Thomas Harry I’m led to precede my introduction to it by reminding ourselves of the mysteries of the Kingdom of God. (It is purely for information but I thank those who may wish to read the links.) Thomas kindly responded to my intention with,

“Your style of Intro is perfect and encourages people so I am full of support for it, rather than just a link. I enjoyed the link on mysteries, also was a blessing.”

A MATHEMATICAL GOD-INCIDENCE

Four years ago a series of overviews on the growing rapprochement between science and scripture were featured on this blog. It included a particularly peculiar ‘coincidence’ between my Summer-time reading and a physicist’s blog entitled Pure, Breathtaking Mathematical Beauty, which centred around ‘The Euler Identity’. What’s amazing is I’d already read how that same formula is hidden within the Hebrew and Greek of the first verses of the first chapters of Genesis and of the Gospel by John!

Therefore, I blogged on this news in Astonishing Mathematics; the conjunction between Creation, Gospel and Science? and introduced ‘Unlocking The Sign Miracles of John’ by Jonathan Hill. A continuation was posted after re-blogging Joanne Rolston’s Number 153, Signs & Symbols (whom Jesus personally encouraged to venture into His mathematics!) and more details in A Post-Resurrection Miracle as a ‘Mystery’ Now Revealed.

That post also considered the modern definition of ‘mystery’ as an unsolved puzzle, or something difficult or impossible to explain – which is rather trite. When using that term, even eminent mathematician-physicist Sir Roger Penrose tends toward a circumscribed perception of reality, as quoted and discussed in that posting.

That blog continued by quoting Jesus on holy mysteries, as at Matthew 13, which we’ll revisit in ‘God-incidence #2’.

Midnight news confirms yesterday’s blog on Covid-19 effects

This news will come as no surprise to those who read my blog of yesterday in which I give more details of a report cited by William Koenig that foresees post-Covid debility. Naturally, I take no delight whatsoever in getting a ‘bull’s eye’ on this occasion!  So please take note:

In the first minute of today a report reflecting my blog’s content was published by the Telegraph. Their science editor Sarah Knapton begins her report as follows:

“Long Covid” is genuine and leaves patients suffering debilitating symptoms for many months after their recovery from coronavirus, experts have confirmed.  Campaign groups supporting survivors of the virus have previously warned that doctors are dismissing ongoing problems or misdiagnosing the ongoing effects of Covid-19 as chronic fatigue syndrome.

‘But in the first study to show a conclusive pattern, researchers at North Bristol NHS Trust found that three quarters of virus patients treated at Bristol’s Southmead Hospital were still experiencing problems three months later. Symptoms included breathlessness, excessive fatigue and muscle aches, leaving people struggling to wash, dress and return to work.

‘Dr David Arnold, of North Bristol NHS Trust, said: “This research helps to describe what many coronavirus patients have been telling us – they are still breathless, tired, and not sleeping well months after admission.” 

The medical report in Koenig’s Eye View from the White House published 10th July states specifically (emphases mine):

‘..we will have residual side-effects and most likely more to come because we are asking our bodies to deal with an issue they have not faced before in all of humanity. No one is prepared for this. Not even those who most likely sequenced this virus know or understand the residual effects nor will they with the next Covid-20…’

PERSONAL NOTE

Once again, timing proves extraordinary and – even in perversity – demonstrates this is all part of the Lord’s ‘invisible jigsaw’. Being Thursday, today would be devoted primarily to blogging, and my looser schedule for summer-time means items don’t get written or replied to until free-time becomes available. I’d laid aside, therefore, any intention of re-publishing Stephen Mosher’s article on professor Tritto’s denunciations. News of Matt Hancock’s announcement, however, needed attention and required addition of Mosher’s relevant item.

It just so happens (!!) that we swapped our Wed and Thurs around for a coffee morning for a friend. AND it just so happens the weather co-operated too, because this morning was fine and sunny for sitting in the garden, whereas all yesterday was heavy rain and only fit for my being indoors. HENCE, I was able to see that news item and write two blogs on it and the related material – as here and then here!!!

Therefore, had our personal schedule not been re-arranged and the weather complied with both days’ activities, then yesterday’s blog would not have given a relevant lead-in to the article Sarah Knapton was about to write, if not already writing!

AND neither you nor I would be any the wiser over any of this….so ‘Thank You, Lord’!
