Fear Is A Death Trap

Friday, October 15, 2021

Righteous indignation and fearlessness should arise in every believer when we see the evils of government leaders’ overreach and authoritarian rule, especially in a nation of freedoms as we once had in the United States. God said of true believers that He “has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Tim. 1:7). So whatever causes a spirit of fear is not from God but from Satan “who deceives the whole world” (Rev.12:9). Today many deceived people are filled with fear of the alleged COVID-19 pandemic, but even more so by government-mandated vaccines…or else. It’s the fear of the “or else” that motivates people to allow wicked governments to inject DNA-changing vaccines into their bodies. Yet, many believers, in fear, have yielded to that government-mandated process, but some in strong faith rightly resist.

Never forget these promises from President Biden’s regime. They are proven lies. Contrary to their promises they’ve mandated COVID-19 vaccines and cause any who resist their evil rule to suffer social, psychological and fiscal retribution as government rulers pursue their own wicked New World Order agenda. The unvaccinated are now suffering loss of jobs and income, they’re being publically condemned and humiliated, and limited from normal activities. The same thing happened when Hitler’s propaganda poisoned the German people’s minds to believe Jews were unfit for society. Unfortunately, many seem to have forgotten Hitler’s holocaust of death to Jews during WWII. The difference between WWII Germany and today is that globalist despots are no longer in just one EU nation, but GLOBAL. And today every believer needs to discern this truth: vaccine mandates are Satan’s preparatory work for his mark of the beast, preparing unbelievers, the biblically and spiritually ignorant, and the government-compliant, for its nearing eventuality, Rev. 13:16–17. The end-time clock is ticking, and things are not well. America and the world is being prepared for judgment and destruction by fire, 2 Peter 3:10.   We’re just about 8 to 9 years from that. What spiritual and physical preparations have you made? Are you ready?

We read about many ancient kings of Israel who adopted the godless ways of wicked nations by offering their children to be burned in fire to the god Molech, and we rightly call it horrible. Yet, many of America’s leaders together with other wicked international leaders demand the right to murder the infant young in the womb and call it “choice”. That truth is all you need to know that government leaders of this world do NOT have in mind “good works”, which is the predicate of Rom. 13:1–5 for the believers’ command to obey ruling authorities. Realize too that human life has little to no value in the hearts and minds of elite globalists who are a god only to themselves, and that these government leaders are the same people who instill fear into world citizens to tear apart God-created families, social, and religious structures. Such rulers are not to be obeyed any more than Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego obeyed King Nebuchadnezzar, or the apostles who openly disobeyed wicked ruling authorities’ edicts to stop preaching the gospel, etc.

Because “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind”, true believers resist with all righteous indignation and biblical authority civil authorities of this age who seek to lord themselves above the rule of God. Many are filled with fear of the alleged COVID-19 pandemic, but they’re more fearful of the subsequent vaccine mandates that come with a…or else. Fear of retribution motivates people to allow wicked governments to illegally inject harmful foreign substances into their bodies, and it’s killing and maiming many people.

To oppose governments today is met with fear-inducing threats which often silences Christians and buries the talent God gave us which is a spiritual death trap. Read the Parable of the Talents, Matt. 25:14–30. The parable uses money to make the point of gaining souls for the Kingdom of God. Note that the one who buried his talent and didn’t gain more, self-incriminatingly said, “I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours”. But his lord said “You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed…cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (26, 30). Jesus also said “Every branch in Me [believers] that does not bear fruit [the unprofitable servant] He [the Father] takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit” (John 15:2). Do we hear?

It’s doubly noteworthy that God’s Spirit warned that it’s “the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murders, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death” (Rev. 21:8 KJV). Note that the first in line of those who go to eternal judgment are “the fearful”, Strong’s Greek G1169, meaning, the “timid, fearful”. But the church rarely, if ever, hears these truths. Do not be fearful of government overreach and wicked, authoritarian, communist-style rule. In Christ Jesus we’ve been given talents according to our ability which God expects us to use for the growth of His Kingdom. But to shrink back in political correctness, or yield to anti-Christ government and cultural dictates and norms, or to fear traditions of men more than God, these are all deceptive forms of fear that effectively bury the good talents God gave us to use.

Be governed by God’s Word. “Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid nor dismayed before the king of Assyria, [nor of the rulers of our nation] nor before all the multitude that is with him; [nor the multitude that bows the knee to our wicked government leaders] for there are more with us than with him” (2 Chron. 32:7). And again, “Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go” (Joshua 1:7). In this context, to “prosper wherever you go” is to use the talents God has given every believer to boldly advance God’s authority in Christ, “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price” (1 Cor. 6:19–20). The shed blood of Christ compels us to gain more.

The whole world is now in grave turmoil and fear at the order of elite globalists. Dear believers, please discern that world leaders, with malice, are creating divisions among people and families, rage, anxieties, and separation of people, politically, socially, and religiously. Do not participate with their evil works. Heed the Words of Christ who said “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves” (Matt. 10:16). Know that, though we live in this world, we are not of this world, but like Abraham, wait “for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God” (Heb. 11:10). The end of this present evil age is rushing upon us, and few discern the signs of these perilous end-times. Especially now, is the time when it’s imperative that believers know the Word of the Lord and walk in it. Do not allow being deceived by the increased normalcy of our wicked culture. Have a true reverential fear of the Lord God in Christ Jesus, for we must all give an account of our life lived on this earth.
