It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.

Behold I, Paul, say to you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will be of no benefit to you. And I testify again to every man who receives circumcision, that he is under obligation to keep the whole Law.

You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.

For we through the Spirit, by faith, are waiting for the hope of righteousness. (Galatians 5:1-6)

These words written by Paul in the First Century, were addressed to a congregation of believers in Jesus Christ who lived in the city of Galatia, which would be in central Turkey today.

He was confronting the teaching from a group of leaders who were urging the believers to receive a medical procedure: circumcision.

“Circumcision” was the sign under the Old Covenant, instituted by Moses, but not the New Covenant, instituted by Jesus Christ.

And he didn’t hold back in explaining what the consequences would be if these believers decided to receive this medical procedure: they would become “slaves” again to the system that Christ had saved them out of, and they would be “severed from Christ,” “fallen from grace,” and Christ would be “of no benefit” to them.

Read through these verses again, and replace the word “circumcision” for a different medical procedure being preached today by Christian leaders, COVID-19 shots, and you will have the exact same principle happening today as was happening in the First Century from the Jewish “believers” who were trying to force the non-Jewish believers to receive this “mark” through a medical procedure.

It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery (medical tyranny).

Behold I, Paul, say to you that if you receive (circumcision) a COVID vaccine, Christ will be of no benefit to you. And I testify again to every man who receives (circumcision) a COVID vaccine, that he is under obligation to keep the whole Law (everything the medical state dictates).

You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be (justified by law) healed by pharmakeia/sorcery; you have fallen from grace.

For we through the Spirit, by faith, are waiting for the hope of righteousness (healing and deliverance from disease by Christ, not by pharmakeia/sorcery).

In this same letter to the congregation in Galatia, just a few verses after he wrote this warning of receiving a medical procedure, Paul also used the word “pharmakeia,” which in the original language of the New Testament, Koine Greek, would be the word used for what we know today as “medicine, pharmaceutical products, etc.”

But since those English words we use today are considered “good” by the Christian Church, most of the English translations of the Bible translate “pharmakeia” as “sorcery” or “witchcraft” instead.

If you belong to a Christian organization today, has your pastor/priest/bishop (Christian leader) ever explained that to you before?

The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft (pharmakeia); hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like.

I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. (Galatians 5:19-21)

John, who wrote the last book in the New Testament, Revelation, which prophesied about events that would happen during the “last days,” also used this word in the original language, pharmakeia.

The first place he used it was in Revelation chapter 9, describing the unrepentant remnant left on earth who were not killed by the “plagues”:

The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or walk.

Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts (pharmakeia), their sexual immorality or their thefts. (Revelation 9:20-21)

In all your experience in attending a Christian organization, like a “church,” which claims to base their teachings on the Bible, I bet they never used “medicines” or “pharmaceutical products” as being equivalent with “idolatry, murders, sexual immorality, worshiping demons, drunkenness, etc.,” did they?

John used it again in Revelation chapter 18:

The light of a lamp will never shine in you again. The voice of bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again.

Your merchants were the world’s great men. By your “magic spell” (pharmakeia) all the nations were led astray. In her was found the blood of prophets and of the saints, and of all who have been killed on the earth. (Revelation 18:23-24)

Does this sound similar to what is happening in the world today, foretold by John back in the First Century? Has the entire world been “led astray” by the “magic spells” of pharmakeia?

Christian Leaders are now Doing the Devil’s Work for Him

Nowhere in the rest of the world is Christianity so intertwined with the field of “medicine,” and the pharmaceutical industry, as it is in the United States today.

Doctors and other medical professionals are revered more like “saints” in Christianity, instead of wizards and magicians, which is how they are referred to in the Scriptures.

When Christians get sick today, these magicians and sorcerers are who they turn to, not even realizing that most of the time they are committing idolatry, as nowhere in the Bible are we commanded to seek out “doctors.”

So is it any surprise that as the COVID-19 Plandemic scam unfolded last year, that almost all American churches and other Christian organizations fully complied with all the mandates these “doctors” at the national level, in government and in position of authority, told everyone to do?

They violated biblical values and the direct teachings of Jesus Christ in almost every mandate they complied with, and instead sided with the Devil and the Luciferian New World Order agenda.

“Social distancing” caused great harm, especially to the nations’ children, and directly violated the biblical directive to assemble.

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. (Hebrews 10:24-25)

When you come together, each one has a hymn, a lesson, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up. (1 Corinthians 14:26)

“Masking” is actually a ritual used in many occult practices, and denies our humanity, and the fact that we are “created in the image of God.”

American Christians have been in bed with Big Pharma for a long time, and so it is no surprise that when the medical authorities wanted everyone to receive the COVID-19 injections, which have now killed tens of thousands (at least) in the U.S. and injured hundreds of thousands, that Christian leaders led the way urging everyone to get them, including using their own churches as “vaccine clinics,” turning them into “synagogues of Satan.”

Some, such as Franklin Graham, went so far as to say that if Jesus were here today, he would want everyone to get the “vaccine,” a clear blasphemous statement to attribute pharmakeia/sorcery to Jesus Christ. See:

Franklin Graham Reveals He is Part of the Globalist New World Order Agenda – Urges Christians to Get the COVID Shot because “Jesus Christ would Advocate for People Using Vaccines”

But he is not alone. Almost every Christian leader in the U.S. today is promoting the Luciferian COVID-19 shots.

It began long before the shots were even given emergency use authorization by the FDA. This was published in the Christian Post 1 year ago:

2,700 evangelicals warn against politicizing coronavirus, urge Christians to take vaccine


A coalition of more than 2,700 high-profile evangelicals spanning the fields of science and religion have signed onto a statement billed “A Christian Statement on Science for Pandemic Times,” which warns against the politicization of the new coronavirus and urges Christians to take appropriate action against it, including taking a vaccine when it’s ready.

“We are deeply concerned about the polarization and politicization of science in the public square when so many lives are at stake. The word ‘science’ has become a weapon in the culture wars. Scientists are vilified and their findings ignored, while conspiracy theories go viral. Sadly,

Christians seem just as susceptible to these trends. Thoughtful Christians may disagree on public policy in response to the coronavirus, but none of us should ignore clear scientific evidence,” the statement published online by the nonprofit organization BioLogos says.

“We call on all Christians to follow the advice of public health experts and support scientists doing crucial biomedical research on COVID-19.”

And just who is this “Devout Christian geneticist” that heads the nonprofit BioLogos and who drafted the “Christian Statement on Science for Pandemic Times?”

Left – Bill Gates, Center – National Institutes of Health Director and Christian Leader Francis Collins – Right – Anthony Fauci.

The man in the center of the photo above is the “devout Christian”: National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins, Anthony Fauci’s boss, and friend of Bill Gates, who drafted this statement to be given to Christian churches and their leaders.

And the Christian leaders just fell in line, dragging their congregations with them, in promoting the eugenicists’ COVID-19 injections.

And it is working, as more and more Christians are overcoming their “vaccine hesitancy” and deciding to get the shots.

Vaccine hesitancy is declining in religious communities

To be a “Christian” and refuse the “vaccine” now will mean being excluded from the religious community, and viewed as “fringe” and dangerous, as many in the government health agencies are beginning to call people who refuse the shots “domestic terrorists.”

“Science” is the main religion in America today, pharmekia is the sacrament, and doctors are the priests.

Paul had a warning to those who followed these leaders insisting on a medical procedure to remain part of the religious community in that same letter to the assembly in Galatia:

It is those who want to make a good showing in the flesh who would force you to be circumcised (vaccinated), and only in order that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. (Galatians 6:12)

As believers in Christ, persecution is actually the life we are called to, as we follow Christ. It is to be the norm, not the exception. The more we oppose and stand against the Luciferian world system, the more we are persecuted.

Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. (2 Timothy 3:12)

It is the narrow path, the path less traveled, that leads to eternal life and a place in God’s Kingdom, and the REAL New World Order that will be implemented.

Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. (Matthew 7:13-14)

Many who call themselves “Christians” and “religious” will not have a place in the Messianic New World Order, because they only knew about Jesus Christ, but did not know him personally. Only those who know Jesus personally will have a place in this New World Order.

Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.

On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’

And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ (Matthew 7:21-23)

The time foretold by John in Revelation is almost here now, where only those who serve Satan and bear his mark will be allowed to participate in the Luciferian system.

As I have written previously, I do not think this is a physical mark, but simply the mark of those who follow and serve Satan, as evidenced by what they believe and how they act. Either way, though, getting the COVID-19 shot will fulfill that requirement to be accepted in the Luciferian system.

Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.
(Revelation 13:16-17)

The more important “mark” will be the one who identifies the children of God, the redeemed in Christ.

Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory. (Ephesians 1:14)

The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. And out of the smoke locusts came down upon the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth.

They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. They were not given power to kill them, but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes a man.

During those days men will seek death, but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them. (Revelation 9:1-6)


The Seal and Mark of God is Far More Important than the “Mark of the Beast” – Are You Prepared for What’s Coming?

Does that last sentence from the Revelation 9:6 sound like some of those who are now suffering from the horrible side effects of the COVID injections, where no doctors can help them?

I have seen all this coming for years, and have done my best to be a “watchman” and warn people about the idolatry of the medical system. I wrote this six years ago:

Medicine: Idolatry in the Twenty First Century

I have not called myself a “Christian” for many years now, and neither have I been a member of any “Christian Church” organization either, because as I uncovered the atrocities in the pharmaceutical industry, and especially with vaccines, and as I have uncovered and reported about the horrible child sex trafficking system in the U.S., one that the Christian Church willingly participates in, I just did not have a clear conscience attending these institutions and sitting next to people who not only support these Satanic institutions as medical professionals, CPS workers, attorneys, judges, etc., but are actually leaders in them, just like Francis Collins of the NIH, mentioned above, the “Devout Christian geneticist.”

Every Christian Church pretty much has a Dr. Francis Collins equivalent who yields more influence and power than even the Pastor or Priest.

So for those you who are truly counting the cost and paying the price of following Jesus Christ as his disciple, and have no intention with complying with the COVID-19 vaccine mandates, if you have not been excluded from your Christian community yet, you might want to take the advice of Paul who wrote to the believers in Corinth:

Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols?

For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.”

“Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 6:14-18)

Paul goes on to end his letter to the believers in Galatia with these words:

For even those who are circumcised do not themselves keep the law, but they desire to have you circumcised that they may boast in your flesh.

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation.

And as for all who walk by this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God. (Galatians 6:13-16)

There are a lot of interesting things that Paul talks about in these verses, but for me, that last phrase, “Israel of God,” which is translated the exact same in the King James and every other English version, because it is so basic in the Greek and there is no other way to translate it, is especially interesting, as it is the equivalent of how “Christians” is used today, a term that Paul would never use to refer to believers.

The term “Israel of God” referred to all believers, regardless of ethnicity or race, both ethnic and religious Jews, as well as Gentile believers.

But those Jews “of the circumcision” crowd wanted to create class warfare, and insist that all believers who were not ethnic Jews also be circumcised and keep the law of Moses. So you would have believers in Jesus as the Messiah divided between those “circumcised” and those not.

Is it any different today? The Christian leaders want to create class warfare within their communities, classifying people between “vaccinated” and not vaccinated.

Paul, himself a conservative Jew of the Pharisee party, basically said: I’m not going to play your game. I am just going to identify with Jesus Christ and his sacrifice on the cross, and the “new creation.”

And that’s what I am doing. I’m not even going to associate as a “Christian” nor join their clubs. I’m part of the “Israel of God,” and I know what’s coming.
