You and I, and the American public, have been lied to about this COVID-19 crisis. Some of those lies were unintentional, well-meaning conjecture by civic-minded individuals in leadership. Other lies were deliberate to seize upon this pandemic to further an evil political agenda. And that political intent was inherently diabolical because it promotes the spirit of the Antichrist. Follow this step by step.
We have been told that, for our own good, it was necessary to close all the schools in America, effectively dumbing-down a generation. Because New York City, the epicenter of this pandemic, was in a health crisis, some politicians insisted that we all had to become New York and lock ourselves away lest we die by the millions. Fact: New York with just 6% of U.S. population has one-third of all COVID deaths. This COVID panic then went after the church. Congregations of any size, anywhere, were forbidden to worship, even if they practiced social distancing. Pastors were arrested. Even driving into a church parking lot resulted in a $500 fine. Almost any surgical procedure, non-COVID, was deemed unnecessary. Unless you were suffering a high fever and persistent cough, many doctors wouldn’t even look at you. Deaths from accidents, heart disease, and flu were pushed aside because it was all about COVID, no matter that millions became jobless and the government prohibited any form of public worship. And notice what wasn’t banned in most states — lottery tickets, sales of liquor, and dispensing of marijuana. Hmmm.
Some died because they couldn’t get what Big Brother said was a non-essential surgery. Family members suffered in hospitals without visitors and even died alone. Millions lost their jobs and ended up in food bank lines. We were told to shut up, lock down, put on our masks and binge-watch Netflix, for our own good. We all became New York, otherwise we were warned 50 to 100 million of us would die. (Yes, some so-called experts said that.) And even if we complied, we were admonished that life would never be the same again. We’d never shake hands. Give someone a hug. A bigger government would have to monitor our every move with drones. All for our own good.
I ask a simple question. Do you personally know anyone who has died from COVID-19? Do you know anyone who knows anyone who died from COVID-19? I don’t, and I don’t know anyone who does. Yes, thousands have died, though far less than an average year’s total of drug overdoses, suicide, and car accidents. I’m not minimizing the need for measured concern, even locally drastic measures where warranted. But in the name of COVID-19 there has been demonic over-reach. Demonic because it has been based on exaggerated lies that fit perfectly into events that presage the coming of the Antichrist. We mourn those who have died from COVID-19. We honor all doctors, nurses, and first responders who braved personal health challenges to treat those truly suffering. But we must all learn a lesson, that the “son of perdition” (2 Thess. 2:3 KJV), “man of lawlessness” (NIV), the Antichrist, will doubtless build his kingdom based on COVID-like lies. You’ve been warned. This pandemic has been a ramp-up for the revealing of the Evil One. Will you be this easily deceived next time?
