If Jesus threw the moneychangers out of the temple, why can’t worshipers throw out the CDC?

Part One

Are they really going to shut down all the churches in the world? “Too many people in one place, no more Sunday services.” I don’t think so. Don’t write me and tell me about the churches that have already shut down. I’m talking about the millions of others that are still open.

What are these churches? They’re places where people can wake up their spirit. And what does that spirit say? Huddle in the dark? Wait for the virus to pass over? Give in?

That’s not what I hear. I hear that in some countries, they’re places where the State does not tread. Where the worshipers can even speak their minds. I’ve never been shown Scripture where God says churches have to protect their government granted 501C3 non-profit status and therefore have to cower in fear.

CHURCH is where people can mount a PUSHBACK against the lockdowns and economic destruction. Against the attack.

CHURCH is where people can stand up and say they’re OK and healthy and they’re not falling for the illusion. This is where people can tear away the false curtain.

If one person stands up in church and says the epidemic is hyped up and is a cover story that allows the government to wreck the country, another person might stand up and say the same thing. Isn’t this a tradition called TESTIFYING? Aren’t courage and righteousness supposed to have a place in churches? What happens if 50 people stand up? A hundred? What if this happens in many churches? What if the energy is a fireball? Even out in the countryside, away from the cities, I understand people have things called cell phones. What prevents them from recording all this testifying and sending it all over the world? WE’RE HEALTHY. WE’RE OK. WE’RE NOT GOING TO DIE. WE DON’T WORSHIP THE VIRUS. WE’RE NOT HERE TO FALL ON OUR KNEES AND WORSHIP THE VIRUS. THE VIRUS ISN’T GOD.

If Jesus threw the moneychangers out of the temple, why can’t worshipers throw out the CDC?

(Modern translation): “People of Jerusalem, run through your streets! Look around! See for yourselves! Search the marketplaces! Can you find one person who does what is right and tries to be faithful to God? If you can, the LORD will forgive Jerusalem.”

So…is there ONE honest politician anywhere who will go into a church on a Sunday and stand up and say I DO NOT WORSHIP THE VIRUS…WE’RE ALL RIGHT, WE’RE NOT SICK, WE’RE NOT GOING TO GET SICK, THIS IS A LIE AND AN ATTACK AGAINST US…

Don’t hold your breath waiting. Don’t wait at all. People who go to church can take the bull by the horns themselves. TESTIFY.

Real churches, as opposed to fake ones, were never meant to be polite places.

From what I’m told, early on in every religion, the original believers struggled against overwhelming odds. Their FAITH sustained them. Yes?

Also, if I understand correctly, God isn’t telling people to wait for Him to take action. Is WAITING a religion?

Is there a Bible I don’t know about that lists all the permitted excuses for WAITING?


Part Two

Does God want a global lockdown for eighteen months?

Churches are the last bastion of separation from State in the society

When there’s a war, there’s dissent. In this war, where are the dissenters?

Could two-gun Trump, accompanied by a live-streaming video crew, do a blazing firebrand tour of 100 churches across the US, and tell worshipers the “epidemic” is being crazily hyped, in order to wage war against the people, through economic attacks? “THIS IS THE MOST FAKE NEWS OF ALL FAKE NEWS! THE CDC IS FILLED WITH LIARS!” You bet your ass he could. Will he? No.


The latest: Time magazine, 3/17: “The U.K. government ramped up its response to COVID-19 Monday, asking citizens to cut all unnecessary contact with other people, after a British research team warned its earlier strategy would lead to hundreds of thousands of deaths. But those researchers also gave a troubling warning for countries around the world implementing lockdown measures: in order to be effective, they would need to last 12 to 18 months.”

Twelve to 18 months would blow any national economy apart.

A public official who declares, or assists in the declaring of, a lockdown should have to haul himself downtown and live among the people he just torpedoed. The people who lost their jobs and businesses. Put these political criminals on minimum welfare and see how they like it. THAT’S called a deterrent. “What, Mr. Mayor? You want a job? In this neighborhood, which is changing radically by the hour, it looks like we have three immediate openings. Slim, none, and zero. What’s your preference?”

For the last 60 years or so, I’ve been hearing about churches where they rattle the timbers and shake the windows every Sunday. —Energy in spirit let loose. Churches are the last bastion of separation from State in the society. That’s where people are supposed to go, to find their Ultimate. What are they supposed to do in an economic war that’s being leveled against them? Stay silent? Is that what God is looking for? Eighteen months of silence?

I googled “God wants 18 months of lockdown,” and the first thing that came up was:

“As Italy remains on lockdown until at least April 3, priests across this overwhelmingly Catholic country are being forced to look for alternative ways to minister to their flocks. Even the public mass, the most solemn rite in the church’s liturgy, has been banned along with other public gatherings. Instead, many priests are turning to the virtual world to bring people closer to God.”

“A proliferation of prayer chains are being organized on WhatsApp or websites—such as the new Corona(Anti)Virus for 24-hour rosary recitation—and in addition many priests are now streaming masses on YouTube channels or Facebook. One priest of a small town in Brianza, one of the areas most affected by the new coronavirus, even asked his worshippers to email him selfies or other pictures of themselves, so that he could print them out, stick them on the pews and not feel alone in his church while conducting a mass. He got hundreds of images and ran out of toner for his printer.”

After reading that, I provisionally decided the Vatican has no clue about what God wants.

I could have looked for Biblical references to selfies, but held myself back.

That’s not the kind of church I’m talking about. That’s a complicit corporation.

I’m talking about churches where people stand up and TESTIFY, because in a staggering economic crisis like the one we’re now facing, THE SPIRIT MOVES THEM, AND SO THEY MOVE. And if their church is too polite a place, THEY SANCTIFY IT BY THEIR ACTION.

    The french went to the street and protested in spite of the lockdown. Here’s a thing: more and more people are waking up – all the talk around me, even from those who fully endorse science and the medical state is of the peculiar nature of the numbers- the low morbidity rate, the lack of any deaths around them – at all, and that the only death reports are coming from media sources. There are those who are wondering if all these measures are necessary. For now, the talk seems to be that the shutdowns are vital for now, because there might be a flare up.

    But, if more lockdown persists, after China, Italy and other countries announce the alleged virus has peaked, people are going to start becoming a bit less peaceful than they are now. I suspect petitions to to local governments, in mass numbers, will start soon. Especially as the people aren’t working and slaved to the system.

    a case in point: New York Mayor announced a six month lockdown – conveniently close to the election it seems – hey, fine Mr. Mayor, go for it. That is if you don’t mind riots, like in the seventies if not worse, people leaving the city and total financial meltdown. We are not living in the time period where totalitarian regimes could manage, at least for awhile, severe oppression of the people. The information is out there, at the moment relatively easy to access. I fully suspect many governments to be uncaring and completely willing to go for lockdowns, and it’s something that I do not see, in this day and age of informed people, working for very long.

    Oh, and sure, they’ll give it a try, but we are no longer mere peasants and peons. And to give it a biblical spin, this sure seems to smack of illusion. Illusions only work so long as the illusion isn’t known. Same with a con. Like the cup and ball game, if you know how it’s done, you’re not fooled. And isn’t it something along the line that evil generally has only illusion to work with?

    Agree. We need saints and heroes NOW. Wake up people!

    Thank you so much, Jon, for this brilliant article. I heard you on The Richie Allen show not long ago and have been following you ever since. Also, stumbled across this music video recently and was wondering…. Do you know anything about this guy?

    Hi there, the Bible does call for Quarantine for sick (catchy) individuals, but it doesn’t call for lockdowns of everyone else who isn’t.
