Cautious Progress After Lockdown

As more statements and comments are made from world leaders, business owners and believers in Jesus need to stay vigilant

Cautious Progress After Lockdown

A great deal has happened since my last post.  I have been exceptionally busy developing salesXchange and preparing a definitive marketing strategy for all B2B businesses and organisations as this has been the single biggest problem commerce has faced for decades.

By solving this problem, it will have a significant, long-term effect on businesses, and I can confidently and wholeheartedly state that I was led down this path by God (visit https://www.salesxchange.co.uk)

As you can see from my picture, there’s not a great deal else one can do except work and create content and keep building our business website – and praying too.

So, when it comes to our businesses, we all have to realise that we’re not fighting to beat our competition; first we have to fight against the global complicit government officials who are hellbent on destroying our society.  And then correlate what they’re doing with our business efforts to ensure the long term success of what we’re doing.

Our Current Situation

After the Bush administration destroyed the twin towers on 911, Tony Blair joined the USA in  a false flag war, fighting insignificant terrorists in caves, Iraq, Libya and Isis.

Now Boris Johnson has gone all-in with Donald Trump to endorse lockdown and a global vaccination programme based upon a man-made coronavirus strain called COVID-19.

Bill Gates is now on the world stage with Dr Fauci dictating what mankind can and cannot do; they are flip-flopping from one recommendation to another, which the whole world seems to be following blindly.

Whilst it is normally commendable to respect authority to ensure social harmony, these two world powers have demonstrated their contempt for all, except the cabal.

Unless you are part of the elite, you/we, are thought of as nothing more than slaves. They’ve proven they can orchestrate disaster whenever they please and nobody is accountable. All press and media are owned by the cabal and are, by default, complicit.

Melinda Gates was recently seen sporting the same inverted cross that is also worn by Chelsea Clinton. Bill Gates is no doctor, but is advising the world on quantum dots - a holographic marker that connects to bitcoin and a global vaccine register all under the banners of COVID-19, otherwise known as Certificate Of Vaccine IDentification ’19, and ID 2020 - the patent number being 060606.

As Celeste Solum said, “these days to come are not for the faint hearted. There is no way out and you can’t fight it.  The only escape is to know Jesus and understand the big picture.”

Biblical Background

If any biblical prophecy were hidden, everyone would cry foul.  However, as with everything else hidden in plain sight, this ‘mark of the beast’, with its symbolic number and intent is yet another illustration of how the enemy always works and that is – publicise it, tell the masses about it and without any ‘push-back’ we have inadvertently given the enemy approval or permission to carry on.

What is sad is that many people dismiss any relevance to the Bible and what’s happening now. My problem is there are 351 prophecies that have been proven to have already been fulfilled in the Bible and there are but a few waiting to happen.

The deal is, there are only two sides and there have only ever been two – God or satan. But people have been deliberately misled and deceived. In a simple illustration, from president to preachers, they troll out the ‘quip’  “we’re all God’s children”. Absolutely not, we are not all God’s children.  Yes, God created us in his image, but most people on this earth are children of satan.

  • God gave us free will to decide how we want to live
  • Satan came along and corrupted everything and was handed control of the Earth by Adam
  • The depths of depravity knew no bounds! God saw it was all evil and flooded the Earth with water from above and from below

From Adam to Jesus, satan was in control, but there were many people who followed God.  This number got as low as a few thousand - well 7000 (1 Kings 19:18) – and yet God’s plan was to create laws to help man understand right from wrong.

In total there were 631 laws, and no one could keep all of them, until Jesus came along.

If someone broke one of the laws, he/she had to pay for it. The bigger the sin/error, the bigger the payment. In those days the currency for payment, or atonement, was an animal. So, a dove compared to a bull meant a small sacrifice to a large sacrifice.

Sacrifices for sin were made once a year on the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur. The sins of individuals were then transferred to a goat which was then let loose in the desert.  This is where the expression ‘scape goat’ comes from.

Now you know the story of sin followed by sacrifice.  Because no one could call themselves sinless only Jesus, Jesus became our sacrifice to pay for our sins. We broke the law, he paid the price; past, present and future.

After Jesus was baptised he went to the desert for 40 days. At the end of 40 days, satan turned up and attempted to convince Jesus to submit to him. As you may know, satan tried to get Jesus to do the following:

  1. To turn a stone into bread - Jesus’s response was ‘man does not live on bread alone, but the word of God’.
  2. Jump off the top of Temple building and you will be saved as specified in Psalm 91 – Jesus says ‘thou shall not tempt the Lord your God’
  3. Satan offered all the kingdoms (Governments) of the world if Jesus would bow down and worship satan – Jesus replied – “We are all to only worship God”.

There was no argument or discussion. Satan ran the Earth; he was king and ruler. They were satan’s kingdoms to give, even though God created the world. God handed ownership and all authority in the earth to Adam and Adam handed it over to satan. God would not break a law He put in place and so it remained in the possession of satan.

Now we are clear about the players here and the ownership of the world, now back to Jesus.

When Jesus died he was able to infiltrate Hades.  This enabled Jesus to reclaim satan’s power over mankind.  This is why it is coined ‘being saved’.  We are being saved from enduring eternity without God and enduring His wrath in a lake of fire – for eternity.

Jesus did not reclaim satan’s authority and rulership of the earth.  It is that we were given an opportunity to ‘opt-out’ from satan’s world, which he has no control over.  Jesus reclaimed satan’s power over us and created a way for anyone to receive the power of the Holy Spirit. 

Mankind was given a way out.

Checks & Balances

There are a series of ‘checks and balances’ throughout the Bible as nothing is done without reason and redress. Jesus preached the gospel to the people who died in the flood (1Peter 3: 18-20). 

By the way, in Exodus, 3000 were killed in an earthquake after creating the golden calf and worshipping it instead of God. This balances with 3000 coming to faith and being baptised on the day of Pentecost in Jerusalem

Peter denied Jesus three times before He was crucified.  When Jesus met Peter on the shores of Galilee after His resurrection, Jesus asked Peter three time ‘Do you love me…”? (John 21:15-17)

Following on from the example with Peter, Proverbs 18 talks about death and life in the power of the tongue.  I believe we are expected to be very careful what we say.  (Matthew 12:36) says we are answerable for every idle word

What we have to share with others

Stage One

The process is quite simple, however following through takes effort and thought:

  1. Repent to God; know what sin is, know you’ve sinned and verbally talk to God. Don’t think it, confess your sins and ask for forgiveness and do a 180° about-face and live differently.
  2. Get baptised to Jesus to wash away your sins, to die with him and to rise again.
  3. Be filled with the Holy Spirit. This is a promise and a gift.

Stage Two

These are the instructions according to the Bible:

  1. Lay hands on the sick to heal them
  2. Cast out Demons
  3. Ask for wisdom
  4. Make disciples

The final element is ‘The Miracle’. But that is God’s domain. The important factor is to know that stage two is up to us and not God. If something bad happens, help people understand, don’t blame God - blame satan!

In our daily lives we are to work, rest and pray…God created us to live amazing lives, no matter what our circumstances. In Joshua 1:8, it says to keep the Book of the Law on your lips (i.e. speak it out) and meditate night day (i.e. keep thinking about it so as not to let the enemy whisper to you) The Apostle Paul illustrates the battlefield is in the mind! (Romans 12:2).

Don’t be deceived

Tithing

Another point of contention is that preachers are stepping up their requests asking their congregations for money as their respective churches are closed. Yet when a church member asks for money the preacher tells them to ask God.  Tithing is grain, oil, bread and so on.  It was always produce, never ‘cash money’.

If you are being asked to financially support your local community centre, i.e. church, and you’re happy to do that, then that’s great.  But do not be deceived into believing giving cash for church salaries and activities is part of your worship, it is not.  Be a cheerful giver and give whatever you want to the people you know are in need in your directly connected communities.  Don’t forget, the Apostle Paul worked, he was not paid a salary!

  • No matter your circumstances ask for wisdom
  • If your finances are in bad shape, ask for wisdom
  • If you have a problem ask for wisdom

This brings us full circle back to COVID-19 and what now?  But actually, the burning question isn’t what now, but where now?

One World Religion

We could all put on masks, get the mark, and become a lab-rats for the new world order!  The one world religion was signed off on the 18th of September 2013 in South Korea, so anyone who thinks Revelation is nonsense, you’re already seven years too late. Do a quick search on Google for more information.

One World Government

Presidents and Prime Ministers (George Bush, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Barak Obama, Bill Clinton etc) have all made very public comments about its necessity.  However, the US Congress and the U.N. already submitted to the Vatican on the 25th of September 2013.  Also, read the Papal publication ‘From Conflict to Communion’, published on 17th October 2017, exactly 500 years after the Reformation.  It will all make sense.

The Rapture

Spoiler alert!  The pre-tribulation rapture ruse was concocted by the preachers in the Wild West of America during the 1800s as a story to encourage people to go to church - it ain’t going to happen people!  First the Man of Perdition will appear and proclaim ‘peace’.  Then the world will be expected to worship him.

Then there is the mark of the beast, followed by the seven year tribulation starting with 3½ years when we experience satan’s wrath and many believers will rounded up during this time.  This is followed by God’s wrath.  There will be very few or no believers around at this time and if there is a rapture it may happen then.  After Armageddon and judgement, the New Jerusalem comes down and the believers will inherit the earth  

Understanding End Times consists of a layering of events over time, such as the one world religion, the one world government, the mark of the beast and so on.

There are only two sides; those that follow Jesus and those that don’t. As it says in scripture (John 14:6) The only way to the Father is through the Son. Not Mary, not the Pope and not Mohammed.

Even if you think you’re sitting on the fence, you’re not; you belong to satan and that is the end of discussion.

The Coronavirus COVID 19 Strain

Hundreds of thousands have called for Bill Gates to be arrested and tried for crimes against humanity for the 47,000 deaths and crippled children in India and Africa, yet he is still racking up TV and internet interviews, globally.  As does Dr Fauci.

As you have gathered, I am 100% against the coronavirus plan-demic. The new coronavirus strain, COVID-19 and its symptoms can be dealt with by ibuprofen and aspirin.  They’re even arguing about Hydroxychloroquine; one minute it’s great, the next they don’t know.

As of today (28th July 2020) a group of doctors held a press conference in the USA and stated that all the governments were lying to everyone and Hydroxychloroquine does work for both protection and symptoms and the use of ventilators do more harm than good; statistics have been fabricated and the press has lied to everyone.  And to top it all, global economies have been destroyed.

Social distancing and face masks become mandatory on public transport and in many other locations. Fortunately, my amazing and wonderful wife instructs me to stay at home whilst she goes shopping as it affects my blood pressure!

It is clear to me what they’re planning, even if it looks like a Marxist strategy in the USA at the moment to oust Trump and the global attempt to redefine society and governments’ ability to dictate to the masses, illustrated by only now attempting to make face masks mandatory after four months!

What Does Jesus Say?

The Bible highlights what Jesus said in red print.  I’m not interested in what anyone else says to me about my faith.  I will follow Jesus and not my own ego. E.g. I’ve heard members of Baptist churches say they don’t need to get baptised!  Therefore, I make an easy distinction for myself by categorising people as atheists, agnostics, religious people, Christians and then Believers.  Get baptised and then start learning!

Word of caution; there are pastors on Facebook and YouTube telling viewers they only need to say the ‘prayer of salvation’, acknowledge they’re sinners and state that Jesus is the Son of God and they will be saved. Nice try satan.  This is not true.  I believe we are to get baptised in water in order to have our sins washed away and to enter into a covenant with Jesus.

Not only that but these pastors state that, all the church will be raptured, which means they will disappear from the face of the Earth, be taken to heaven and will escape all the evil our governments and satan has planned for the rest of mankind.

What are Believers supposed to do?

What are we, as Believers in Jesus, supposed to do? Firstly, obey the law (to a point, I’ll come onto this in a minute). If they say to wear a face mask, so what?  Do it when it’s absolutely necessary.  If you have to queue, so be it.

Do not forget who runs the world. As believers we’re in the world but not of the world. We have our own destination. As an example, when Jesus was with Peter on the shore of the Galilee, he asked about paying taxes and Jesus said, pay Caesar what is Caesar’s (Matthew 22:21). Therefore, common sense says to comply.  However, when it comes to vaccines and RFID chips my stance is definitely not. No matter what the circumstances or ramifications.

We are also told to pray for our leaders that we may live peaceful lives (1 Timothy 2:2)  However this does not necessarily mean that we will be able to change their minds especially as there is a bigger agenda at play here and we know who wins.

To date there are too many imponderables, from the misleading narrative and statistics from the World Health Organisation, the NIH and a CDC in the USA to the whole BLM rioting and logic of home isolation and lockdowns.

The more research, the more it exposes global governments to be in collusion for a financial reset; to finally establish a global financial mechanism, based upon RFID administered via vaccines and monitored via 5G. Even the fact that Bill Gates got approval for the global track and trace contract six months before the so-called outbreak, from which he will earn a further hundred billion, makes it clear all of this was planned well in advance.

With all this information flying around it makes our resolve even stronger. The Bible says 365 times, do not fear and do not be afraid. As you learn more about eternity and that we’re only on a training program whilst on the Earth, then the objective of satan, to distract mankind to either worship him or dismiss God, becomes even more visible and obvious.

Understanding Joy

As believers, our focus is to recognise what joy and peace are. Jesus left His peace with us, so knowing what it is, is essential.

A key element of being a believer is to know that we are to take action in every situation. Too often we hear, “well if God cared He wouldn’t do this or do that!” Many people don’t understand that satan and his demons run every government in the world.

My view: keep praying; the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16)

As it says in Ephesians 6:10,  our job is not to take off our armour, keep praying against satan and his demons, binding them up to allow God’s word to penetrate this any other situation.

We can and are expected to live amazing and productive lives and not be hamstrung into silence.  God put’s desires on our hearts (Proverbs 24:26, Psalms 37:4, Philippians 2:13) and He knows we will enjoy doing what he has ‘suggested’ we do.

We are expected to succeed, we are blood-bought children of The Most High God.  We have been adopted into His family, no matter what may have happened to our earthly families or how they may behave towards us, as Jesus said “who is my brother who is my mother.”

Our destiny is in eternity.  It might seem tough getting there but for now we are alive and have the power of the Holy Spirit in us as born-again believers.  That same power raised Jesus from the dead and God placed a covenant seal on us that tells satan and every demon that we belong to God and they can’t touch us – only tempt us by whispering into our subconsciousness.  This is why the battlefield is in the mind (Romans 12:2) and remembering/meditating scripture keeps us from entertaining their lies (Joshua 1:8).

When it comes to running your business or any other walk of life, as believers we have the authority to step on snakes and scorpions (Luke 10:19). If we repent to God, are baptised to Jesus and receive the Holy Spirit – it makes complete sense, ‘If God is for us, who can be against us’ (Romans 8:31)

The Good News

The most important aspect of life on earth is to understand what is going on.  To know who’s in charge and what is expected of us on a day-to-day basis.  We must understand the rules in order to have a chance of success. This is why I have reiterated about baptism, what we’re able to do and what we cannot.

There are expectations placed on God that are simply not true.  They are done to hook people into  believing false promises and false preachers, to get more ‘buy in’ or should I say more cash. 

A relationship with God is not transactional, but it does require fulfilling the basics and doing some study.  This is why discipleship is so important and why, as business owners, we have such an important role to play in the lives of those who work for us.

As businesspeople, it is important to recognise our role in God’s Kingdom.  We have a responsibility to become the pastors of the businesses God has entrusted us with to drive forward.  As business owners we need to become the Bible people read.  We need to demonstrate what it means to be a believer and to live out those prerequisites.

Path to Salvation

Because Jesus died on the cross and rose again, he paved a way for you so that you can be forgiven of all the things you have done wrong, and that you find the true meaning of life. Since you have lied, stolen, used God’s name in vain, etc., you have violated God’s law, which will result in punishment. But the good news is that God loves you and that He doesn’t want you to be condemned to hell, therefore He sent His son Jesus to take your punishment.

If you turn away from your transgressions and accept this forgiveness through baptism under water you will then receive the Holy Spirit with the sign of speaking in tongues. This means that sin, which separates you from God, will disappear and you will, by the Holy Spirit, experience a living relationship with God, as we read in the Bible.

A supernatural relationship starts here and continues in heaven. The only way to heaven is through Jesus, which you can accept today.
