have a personal confession to make: I hate wearing the COVID mask! I
find it uncomfortable. It makes me hotter than I need to be. After
awhile it stinks. It fogs up my glasses. It muffles other peoples'
conversations. I can't tell if someone is smiling behind their mask or
And frankly, I do not think it is necessary. In one of his more honest moments, Dr. Anthony Fauci actually admitted so!
If you watch the video Fauci admitted that the mask doesn't really give
you the protection you think it does. Why should we think that a thin
mask is going to stop microscopic COVID virus particles from entering
our mouth or eyes? And the masks don't even cover our eyes!
see, I have had experience wearing a common mask when I was sanding
joint compound while working on drywall, preparing for painting. I
would take off the mask and see where dust particles inched down my
face on either side of my nose. Now the mask kept out some of the
drywall dust, but not all of it. I have also used a chemical mask with
cartridge filters when working with strong chemicals. Now those might
be more helpful in fighting the Coronavirus. But not simple masks.
know the arguments. The mask is more about showing love to other people
than about protecting yourself. Then I ask myself, "So why are people
wearing them outside when they are twenty feet away from anyone else?"
And, "Why do they wear the mask when they are alone in their car?????"
tell you why. It is fear. Fear created by a real virus that appeared to
be deadly. But by now we know a whole lot about this virus. And it is
not as deadly as we have been made to believe. For example, if you put
78,000 people into a stadium from the beginning of the year to now, and
gave them plenty of food and water, how many of them, statistically,
would have died of COVID? The answer is, only about 8. I can handle
Would you like to know the truth about how many people have died of COVID alone in the US? According to the latest statistics from CDC, as of August 26, 2020 if you count the people who have died this year from COVID only, with no other co-morbidities such
as cardiac problems or pneumonia problems, etc., only 6% of the total
number of COVID deaths have been from COVID alone. That means that of
the 161,392 total COVID related deaths, only 9,683.52 were from COVID
alone. All the rest of the deaths had, on the average 2.6 additional
causes or conditions. So by itself, without any other conditions
present, you are more apt to die from a car crash than from COVID. (You
have to go to Table 3 and click on it to gain this information.)
lived, during the early portion of this year, until about August 1, in
South Dakota. South Dakota has very lax regulations about COVID masks.
During that time I never wore a mask, except when I had an elderly
parishioner whose children requested I wear one when visiting their
parent. And I wore one when I went into the hospital or a medical
clinic. I walked around in a Walmart store with plenty of people, and
most people did not wear masks. And South Dakota was a pretty safe
place. Yes, some workers in slaughter houses got sick, and I can
understand why, with their working conditions. But we didn't walk
So I think, personally, there is
something more going on here than mere science. This has been the first
time in history that the healthy were asked to quarantine themselves.
Stay home! Don't go anywhere! Why should we quarantine the healthy? And
to me, the mask is just an extension of quarantining the healthy.
what is going on here? The government wants to keep us safe? I believe
Dr. Dan Erickson, of Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield CA, who
said clear back in April of this year: If the government says they want
to keep you safe, this isn't about science, and it isn't even about
COVID. It is about control!
Now I will have plenty of people in
my audience who will scream that this is about showing love and
compassion on other people. Alright. Have it your way. You are missing
Here is my point: The COVID mask is an excellent
illustration and symbol of the government's ability to control its
population. And the government is using fear to force you to do what it
wants you to do.
Now, fast-forward in time to the time the Bible describes as the Great Tribulation, or the time of unprecedented trouble in the world.
will be panic-stricken at the wars, the pandemics, the plagues, at the
extremes in temperature, at stars going berserk up in the heavens. And
a very powerful, persuasive, smooth-talking world leader will rocket
into public awareness.
If you think we have anarchy going on in
American cities now, wait until then. This man will be the ultimate
Anarchist. The Apostle Paul called him "The Man of Lawlessness!" (2 Thess. 2:3). He will make himself out to be the Messiah, the Savior of the world (2 Thess. 2:4). And most people will believe him! And he will require people to worship him as the Messiah.
How will he force them to do that? He will assign every one in the world an identifying number (Rev. 13:16-18).
If you don't accept his number, you will be in deep trouble. Because
you will not be able to buy or sell anything without that number. You
will not be able to buy food or go to a restaurant to eat, or buy gas,
or make your housing payments or get a paycheck or pay your taxes or
get a tax refund without his number. But if you take his number, you
are consenting to worship him.
What are you going to do then, my
friend? Will you permit the government to coerce you to "wear the mask"
or in this case "wear the number?" If you take the number, you seal
your terrible, eternal fate in God's eyes. Here is the truth:
anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his
forehead or on his hand, he will also drink of the wine of the wrath of
God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he
will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy
angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment
goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who
worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his
name. Here is the perseverance of the saints who keep the commandments
of God and their faith in Jesus. (Rev. 14:9-12)
keep wearing your mask if you want to. If it makes you feel better,
wear it all the time. But there will come a time when you better NOT do
what the government requires you to do, or else you will regret it
