WHY MANY CHURCHES CLOSED AND WHY THEY NEED TO REPENT

March 20, 2021

I continually update an article like this. There are also corrections and other links added to this message. 

Scriptural and natural truth is coming at you right now that will change your perspective on what is going on in the earth.

Covid-19 was never as bad as espoused by the lying news media because it has a 99% survivability rate! The only really vulnerable population were the people over 80 with underlying health issues. What Covid-19 did was open the door to huge overreaching by government and restrictions that took away our rights as American citizens. Of course, as bad as it is in America, it is much worse in many nations of the world. Totalitarian, fascist, and socialist government dreams and aspirations received a great push forward through the so-called pandemic. A one-world government takeover received an immense boost through the vehicle of a planned false pandemic.

To top it all off, many churches and ministers capitulated to forced closures. Many churches closed without so-much as a whimper of disapproval or resistance. Good little sheep that they are! They are still closed.

What are we seeing in all this? What is beginning to show it's ugly head in the earth?

Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. (2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 NASB)

The antichrist man that opposes everything of God and His Word, the one that will force a one world government and religion isn’t supposed to be able to show his ugly head until the true and real Church is removed from the earth. Though that is true, we are seeing the antichrist spirit demonstrating great deception in the earth. Covid-19 is the tip of a humongous iceberg of lies and deceptions that has spread into all the earth. The worst part of it is that Satan has used the Covid mess to stop the church, restrict evangelism, impede laying hands on the sick, stop the preaching of the gospel message, stop having altar calls, and so on. That is the biggest lie he successfully spread into most parts of the world. The rest of Satan's plan is an attempt to remove human rights, make people subservient to governmental orders, shut down small businesses, restrict people’s movement and travel, and bring people to their knees before a tyrannical false god called Covid-19.

Any way you slice and dice it, COVID-19 mandates came because of darkness growing in the land. They are not here because of faith, repentance, prayer, and DOING the Scripture. The mandates found an entrance because of a lack of being doers of the Word (James 1:22) in the churches of America and around the world! If all the churches would have stood against the lies of the devil and refused to close, America and other countries would not have suffered all the mess of lockdowns, curfews, social distancing, useless masks, and the rest of the perverted mess! The reality is this: many churches will never reopen, and those that do will find out that their former congregation has fizzled away or gone elsewhere! Watch some of the mega churches when they start opening back up. Their congregations will be gone or greatly decreased and never return! Church buildings are already going up for sale all over the country. Watch what happens!

So what is the truth regarding all this Covid-19 supposed pandemic that is really a non-pandemic? What do we need to know now?

You really MUST hear these Canadian doctors and medical professionals reject the closures, lockdowns, quarantines, and masks. It’s epic!

https://medicalkidnap.com/2021/03/10/canadian-doctors-speak-out-against-government-covid-restrictions-masks-and-vaccines-not-needed/

At the end of their monumental article, listen to the 11 minute video presentation in line with everything I have been telling you about this whole Covid mess. Also listen to this video on what doctors are saying from other countries. Wow!

https://healthimpactnews.com/2020/doctors-around-the-world-issue-dire-warning-do-not-get-the-covid-vaccine/

The lies the world has been subjected to are massive. Yet, the mainstream media continues to dish out their lies and deception with great swelling words of fearful stupidity, and a large portion of the world has swallowed them hook, line, sinker, the fishermen, and the boat!

I personally read dozens of medical studies on the use of masks and found out a few shocking things:

*Masks are useless at stopping viruses from infecting a person wearing one, and from stopping the virus from escaping the mask if someone is infected. Keep in mind the fact that ALL viruses are much smaller than the microscopic openings in the material used for masks. "It's like using a chain link fence to keep out mosquitos!" I heard someone else say that, but I don't remember who it was or I would give them credit because it really gives you a mental picture of what I am saying here.

*Masks hinder the intake of air for breathing (up to 30%) and hinder the exhaling of carbon dioxide into the air. That means that what you are rebreathing under the mask is partly carbon dioxide (a waste product that is unbreathable) and not the air you need to live! That contributes to the diminished function of a lot of internal organs!

There is evidence that surgeons have decreased mental acuity after 4-6 hours in the operating room after using a surgical mask. The real losers here are the little children being forced to wear masks for hours a day. What do you think oxygen deprivation together with carbon dioxide inhalation is doing to their developing brains and internal organs? It is criminal.

*Studies indicate that continual use of masks will have a detrimental effect on the immune system and will contribute to infections in the gums and lungs. Look at this article:

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/mask-mouth-dentists-warn-prolonged-use-of-masks-leading-to-poor-oral-hygiene

See this video by Dr. Lee Merritt on the falsehoods of masks:

https://www.americasfrontlinedoctors.com/custom_videos/mask-myths

Here is another article from a surgeon on the falsehood of the general population wearing masks:

https://principia-scientific.com/surgeon-destroys-myth-if-masks-dont-work-why-do-surgeons-wear-them/

Shrinkage is coming to America and around the world by continually being masked up. ALL compliant, clueless, mask-wearing-men need this info right now! Are they doing this purposely to the male population to feminize them by shrinking their manhood? 

https://nationalfile.com/study-chemical-that-causes-penile-shrinkage-found-in-face-masks/

That should make every real man reading this to cringe and rush to remove their penis-shrinking masks! If you are OK Mister Moron with becoming more girlie, and you have no issue with your manhood shrinking, then go ahead and wear your death-to-manhood mask!

Watch these interviews with Dr. Richard Urso, an ophthalmologist from Texas with drug development background that has a lot of medical training under his belt.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4BfPl2EzMI

https://directory.libsyn.com/episode/index/show/conservativebusinessjournal/id/17376962

These are by no means a complete catalog of doctors, nurses, and clinical studies that prove the world has been subjected to myths, outright lies, and falsehoods being spread by the mainstream media, giant social media outlets, and governments. The medical profession is slowly but surely rising up against all the lies of Covid-19, and they are coming from different countries around the world. 

I wore the masks for a very short time to go into some stores at the beginning of this whole mess, but quickly removed them, repented, and have refused to wear them except on rare occasions. As an example, I wore one when I had to enter a government building to get a license plate and registration for a vehicle. I took it off once inside and no one said a thing to me, so I left it off.

I go everywhere mask-less and refuse to social distance. Occasionally, I have been refused entry or service without a mask. It happened at one of my favorite stores, “Bass Pro-Shop”, so, I haven’t returned since! Other places, I simply ignore posted signs, and disregard any worker asking me if I have a mask or offering me one. If asked, I say emphatically, “No!” and just keep walking. Generally, they leave me alone. If they ask, I will tell them masks don’t work and are detrimental to one’s health. Also, I ask if they are a Christian. If they are, I can tell them what they are doing and yielding to. You say, “What are people yielding to?” Don’t you get what Satan is trying to implement even now? He is trying to fast-track the beast system of the antichrist!

16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16, 17 NASB)

You can't buy or sell is coming at some point. Already, Gov. Inslee of the state of Washington stated in an interview that people would not be able to buy groceries unless they were vaccinated!

People of God, we are at a crossroads here. We must stand up and resist the devil.

Look, I understand that employees at many businesses are stuck with wearing masks or they risk losing their employment. I feel for you and your predicament. I understand that businesses can require patrons to wear a mask or ask them politely not to enter or to leave the premises. I understand they can do that legally. They have the right of admission. It's time for Christian workers to seek employment elsewhere or start their own businesses. Yep, it's time to suck it up and suffer a loss for Jesus than to capitulate and perpetuate a lie by staying with a lying emblem on your face! 

In some countries, and in some local socialist governments (NYC and others), they are implementing an ID card to prove you have been vaccinated or you can’t go to a business or eat at a restaurant. That is just like wearing the emblem of the beast!

The same has been done with mask wearing. Recently, I tried to get my little boys ice cream at two different shops on Treasure Island (next to St Petersburg Beach) and they would not serve me without a mask! Did I yield? No way! I went through a drive through! Haha!

In many places you can’t buy or sell unless you have on a mask, and still, churches don't get it.

At a SunBank/Truist bank, I was told that if I came to the lobby I had to wear a mask to open an account! I refuse to wear a face diaper! Food, money, grocery stores, and what else is coming? Wow! If that doesn’t sound like preparation for the antichrist's one-world government in training, then I don’t know what would! 

For the record, I WILL NEVER BE VACCINATED! Why? Check this article written about Dr. Andrew Kaufman and then on the same page watch a 55 minute interview with Dr. Kaufman:

Have you read about all the crap that is in those vaccines? Have you read about all the deaths and massive side effects from all the vaccines around the world? Here are 8 ways that the mRNA vaccine can kill you by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny:

There are medical reasons why vaccines should never be fast tracked. You better wise up. Vaccines can modify DNA permanently, and contribute to Mad Cow Disease like symptoms and illnesses in humans!

Don't believe the lying media on this issue, but actually, don't believe them on ANY issue!!

Did you know that over 52,000 medical professionals worldwide have now signed on to the Great Barrington Declaration (see their website: https://gbdeclaration.org/) calling into question the draconian Covid 19 policies, procedures, and vaccinations?

https://healthimpactnews.com/2020/covid-has-caused-tens-of-thousands-of-medical-doctors-and-scientists-to-wake-up-to-corruption-in-the-medical-industry/

Did you know that the Barrington declaration was originally signed in the US Otober 4, 2020 calling for the stop to the Covid-19 nonsense presented by the news media and our own government, both nationally and locally? The three original signers were not lightweights! They are: Dr. Martin Kulldorff, professor of medicine at Harvard University, a biostatistician, and epidemiologist with expertise in detecting and monitoring infectious disease outbreaks and vaccine safety evaluations, Dr. Sunetra Gupta, professor at Oxford University, an epidemiologist with expertise in immunology, vaccine development, and mathematical modeling of infectious diseases, and Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, professor at Stanford University Medical School, a physician, epidemiologist, health economist, and public health policy expert focusing on infectious diseases and vulnerable populations. All these and I didn't even tell you about the 44 co-signers that were also very qualified physicians and medical professionals! Over 52,000 medical scientists and practitioners have signed on, and the medical professionals are coming forward with the truth all over the globe!

Quit believing the lies from the communist mainstream news media and those that have a vested monetary interest in the vaccines, like big pharma and miniature doctors. Don’t believe the miniature man, the medical garden gnome Fauci. Rodney Howard Browne had a garden gnome made of him, and it is hilarious! Don't pay attention to that person that buys his clothes in the children’s section (a favorite description of Fauci by RHB) that is supposed to be the authority on these medical things nationally, but Fauci is lying through his teeth to the American people!   

Some airlines are pursuing having a vaccination passport to prove you are subservient to the system, and some countries are beginning the process to implement them for any form of travel. Even the nation of Israel has fallen to this “vaccination passport” nonsense and requiring forced vaccines, but look at what's happened:

https://vaccineimpact.com/2021/israelis-cry-out-to-the-world-to-stop-mandatory-covid-injections-as-lawsuit-is-filed-in-international-criminal-court-over-nuremberg-code-violation/

Don't forget to watch the associated video and Rabbi Weissman's reasons he won't take the vaccine. Here is the original article from Rabbi Chananya Weissman: 31 Reasons Why I Won’t Take the VaccineI agree with him 100%! It makes no difference that he is not a Christian! I say that for all my prejudiced Christian brethren! He is right about this. I understand that some of his points have to do directly with what is going on in Israel, but we see the same nonsense in the U. S. A., so it is appropriate and timely here. There are not 1 or 2 reasons to NOT take the vaccine, but a solid 31 reasons you should not submit to vaccination! Read them and learn them well. It's an essay, and all easily verifiable. 

Here is another important article by the New York Teachers For Choice:

https://nyteachersforchoice.wordpress.com/2020/09/20/top-10-reasons-why-a-covid-vaccine-should-not-be-mandatory/

Mandatory vaccines, as clearly stated in this article above, or forcing people to get vaccinated, is a direct violation of the Nuremberg Code that was established after WW2 to counteract Nazi policies and practices! We need to oppose forced vaccinations NOW, spiritually, physically, and politically! 

These are all signs of the times where the antichrist system is being pushed to set things up for the still future man of sin or lawlessness. This is not funny! Listen to what Bill Gates is doing NOW with injections from this medical doctor:

https://media.gab.com/system/media_attachments/files/073/075/235/original/214821d7b2498c91.mp4

Remember all the churches that closed when the Covid mess started? Did you know churches are opening up as vaccination centers? They subjected themselves to a lie and a huge deception with masks, social distancing and much more, and now they are serving as death and injury distribution centers! Death camps?

Church, it is time to repent! America, it’s time to repent! It is time to humble ourselves, pray, seek to please the Lord, repudiate any sinful practices and heresies so the Lord will respond from heaven, forgive our sins, and heal our land, yes, even from the tyrannical and totalitarian socialists and false pandemics! (2 Chronicles 7:13, 14)

All the capitulating churches and pastors in the land need to repent for closing their churches! They received and implemented government orders that were contrary to Scripture. Nowhere in the New Testament are we told to shut down our churches when the government decides we should. It tells the exact opposite! We are never to forsake the assembling of ourselves together (Hebrews 10:25), and much less as we see the day of the Lord's return approaching.

The Church of the Lord Jesus also has a GREAT commission that didn't expire with the so-called pandemic, or better stated, “lying plandemic.” (Mark 16:15-19; Matthew 28:18, 19) Most churches shut down operations without so much as a whimper. Why? Because most were not following the Scripture and obeying it. They were dead or close to dead anyway!

What really shocked me was how most evangelical, word-of-faith, prophetic, Pentecostal, and independent Spirit-filled churches shut down immediately upon orders from their local government. I am not including here the dead denominational churches. They all closed. I am referring here to all the supposedly Bible-believing and Word-doing churches. I am specifically referring to all the churches that said they believed in God’s healing power and espoused it as part of their church doctrine! What happened to the following Biblical instructions when churches closed?

14 Is anyone among you ill? He should summon the elders of the church, and they should pray for him and anoint him with olive oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick and the Lord will raise him up—and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 So confess your sins to one another and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great effectiveness. (James 5:14-16 NET)

You can’t anoint anybody via internet, and you can’t lay hands on them for healing either!

“In my Name (Jesus)… they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover!” (Mark 16:17, 18)

You can’t baptize in water any new converts, and you can’t have communion via video chat!

Most churches capitulated, submitted to, surrendered, and agreed with local authorities instead of agreeing with God and His Word! “We must obey God rather than people!” was how the Church leaders in Acts responded to calls from governmental leaders (those in authority) to stop what they were doing in the Name of Jesus. (See Acts 5:29, and also Acts 4:19.) We follow the laws of the land UNTIL they violate the Scripture! Then, we follow God’s Word regardless of the consequences. That is the way it is supposed to be for the church!

The church in America (and around the world), almost unanimously, demonstrated how weak, pusillanimous, and sissified they really were. Instead of being the triumphant church, churches were generally a bunch of wusses. Instead of suffering persecution and jail time if necessary, they took the route of disobedience to God. 

There were a few exceptions in the United States, and a few pastors were arrested, fined, or jailed for refusing to bow down to the idol of Covid-19, but they were regrettably VERY few and far between.

For a couple of years before the “pandemic”, I assisted a well-known Word-of-Faith church. I won’t mention their name or location because I still hope that the pastor and church repent publicly. They need to. I had great respect for their ministry. When the so-called pandemic hit, they folded like a deck of cards and shut their doors just like all other weak and sissified churches. I was shocked and despaired temporarily. I couldn’t believe it. That church preached Scripture every Sunday and Friday, but when the test came, they fell for the lies of the devil like every other church in the area. I am talking about a church that had miracles, signs, and many manifestations of the Holy Spirit. They believed in God's healing power and taught it profusely, but they capitulated to government mania over a so-called pandemic just like all other churches did. What a tragedy! Sadly, even after they opened, they opened to masks with all the trimmings of believing a lie; social distancing, alcohol wipes, and disinfecting agents. As far as I’m concerned, they are still closed because they are still under bondage to the lies of the enemy. Where is that mighty church that believed and taught God's healing and miraculous power? They are gone UNLESS they repent! They will be with little to no anointing unless they repent. I left that church and won't go back not even for a visit, UNLESS they repent.

The only two churches that remained open in my area in Florida were the River Church in Tampa with pastor Rodney Howard Browne (https://www.revival.com), and the Foundation Church in Englewood (https://www.foundationchurchfl.com) with pastor Tom Laipply. They didn't just talk the talk but walked the walk! Much of what I am saying and writing here are things these ministers have mentioned or spoken about at some point since March of 2020. I am truly thankful to God for these ministries sharing the truth of God's Word and the truth about Covid, socialism, and bad government. The links and other comments come from my own research. 

Don’t miss the Sunday services and rebroadcasts of the River church (revival.com) or the Foundation Church, and the Tom Laipply podcast! Get them all and listen to them closely through their websites.

Listen to the Tom Laipply podcast through Apple podcasts, Rumble, and others. Pastor Laipply is powerful in the Word and has a clear handle on all the lies being perpetrated in the government and so on. Powerful stuff, and he doesn’t mince words! If you are the emotional and sensitive type, you will not like him. You were probably from the group of idiot Christians that voted for the demonrat party and all its baby butchering candidates! At one to two million abortions (murders) per year in the USA, that is genocide! They are baby butchers! Sensitive "Christians" thought Trump was too harsh so they voted for demon-inspired-murderers and their leaders Joe Biden and Kamala Harris! Good job Covid caving Christians, pastors, and leaders! 

If you love the truth, you will love Pastor Laipply’s fiery teaching every Sunday and his no B.S. podcasts!

Redundancy is necessary for his podcast because it has been banned on some social media sites.

Facebook, Twitter, Google, and YouTube are controlled by a socialist agenda that restricts and bans freedom of speech. They deny our Constitutional right according to the First Amendment that guarantees all Americans freedom of speech! That each one of their platforms censors conservatives and Christians is not even in dispute anymore. The oligarchs of technology don't want us to question their devil inspired narrative. They want us to conform to the mainstream media’s talking points and the lying government narrative, or they will censor you or ban you if you state anything to the contrary. We refuse to bow down to their false god of lies and deception, and we will not conform to their world view! We will not conform to this world but we will be transformed by the renewing of our minds to the truth! (Romans 12:2)

Frankly, I will not go to or visit CCC’s (coined by Tom Laipply), "Covid Caving Churches"! Guess where I go to church now? Guess where I send my tithes and offerings? These two churches and these two alone! No others need apply! "Forget the capitulating churches pastored by skinny jeans, latte sucking, boot licking, Covid-caving pastors, UNLESS they repent!" Thank you pastor Laipply for the visual with those reality based words! If you go back into churches like that after they weakly open back up with all the trimmings of believing a lie, I pray you will not be lost and go to hell, because you will be one of those that bow down to Satan's mark of the beast whenever it shows up. You are already training fervently for the mark of the beast if you wear masks, social distance, submit to tyrannical government Covid-19 shut down policies, and their insistence on vaccinations!

As a side note, Pastor RHB published two books that address the Covid and socialist mess the country finds itself in. I suggest you get every one of his books and read them, particularly The Phantom Virus and Socialism under the Microscope. Go here: https://store.revival.com

All the Covid-caving Christians need to repent! Pastors that yielded to the lying, antichrist, anti-Great Commission, and unconstitutional government demands, need to repent for their heretical actions! They need to repent for submitting to government idolatry and allowing them to rise above the orders and commands of the Lord Jesus in Scripture! I heard pastor Tom Laipply say something to this effect first, and it resonates in the Spirit as being the absolute truth!

To help with repentance, now I give you the following list of my short studies on repentance. It is time to face the truth and repent. God gives grace to the humble but resists the proud that refuse to repent of their sins! See 1 Peter 5:5, Proverbs 28:13, and 1 John 1:7-10. I've gone to these Scriptures when I've sinned and received forgiveness and cleansing by the Blood of Jesus. The time for repentance is now!

Don't think for a moment that you closed your church publicly in disobedience to God's Word, and that now you are going to open without public repentance because it will not work. You closed publicly and declared government as your Lord by obeying it instead of obeying the Bible, and now you must repent publicly to gain your footing and place back in God and the anointing. The humble get this. The proud will refuse to repent to their own demise.

Be mightily and overwhelmingly blessed with the truth from God’s Word and the truth about the ongoing lying plandemic! We must take a stand.

The protests against all of this nonsense are going on all over the world. There is a complete media blackout on these protests going on worldwide. The lying, stinking, fake media says nothing about it!! Look at this video of just ONE day of protests against the overreach and removal of our human rights by tyrannical governments. Please pardon the profanity on some of these. I didn't record any of these videos. I don't support the profanity though I do support edgy and VERY tough language if it gets the message across! It's important that the Church understands that even unbelievers are rising up against the falsehoods so you will hear some cussing because they are super angry! I am in 100% in agreement that we must stand and refuse to bow down to the world's falsehoods: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvXXgPHyPFE

Why are not churches protesting? Where is the righteous indignation and anger against evil! 

Look at all the protest videos under the hashtag "wewillallbethere"  https://www.youtube.com/hashtag/wewillallbethere .

We are not alone!

Now on to the recorded message:
