A lot of you are not going to like me for what I am about to say...
You know, when I was still a Pastor in New York City of a small church in Astoria, we would have co-operated with the edicts of the politicians.
THEY believe it is a real pandemic. (Obviously I have MY opinion.) Wouldn't I attempt to co-operate with their fears...? This is my call to action—all the while, with people dying all around this situation, giving them the GOSPEL. (Remember that? For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. This is what they need TODAY, not some conspiracy theory.)
All I want to say, in simple terms...
1. Take this time to ask the Lord to give you ways and different ways to dispense the gospel to the lost. Many of you are very cleaver people. Take this time for the Gospel's sake. Men and women are STILL going to Hell. YOU should try to reach them.
2. If and when the "stimulus money" comes in, ask your congregants to give FROM that money.
3. Do what someone is ASKING you to do.
4. If someone says...
Take this vaccine. And if it winds up to have elements in it that will track you in the future, in my best shot, after listening to the brethren and futuristic prognosticators about the "Mark," (I did say that you won't like me, didn't I...?) take it. In fact if you won't take yours, bring it to me. I'll take it in my OTHER arm. [They'll probably cancel each other out. ☺️]
YOU CANNNNNNOT GO TO HELL.
...If you are a born again believer IN THE CHURCH age, you have NOTHING to fear, right? You are sealed (—did I just say "sealed...?") with the Holy Spirit of promise, heirs and joint heirs with Christ, seated TODAY in Heavenly places.
If you don't like being this close to the rapture and Tribulation, take it up with the Lord at the Judgment Seat of Christ, but that's where He put you the day you were born.
See you on the Other Side.
