Many are wondering if they should get the recent vaccine or not.
Here’s my position on this topic after seeking the counsel of The LORD.
Let me start with the verse from Mark 7:15,
“There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man.”
In the earth realm, God has provided wisdom for us to navigate this treacherous terrain tainted by sin. He has given us counsel on how to manage our bodies, our finances, our relationships etc.
In The Book of Proverbs for example we see the Wisdom of God recommending us to have proper cushions in place such as saving your money, investments,etc. God gives us the examples of ants, coneys, and many more on how to wisely navigate this realm.
Vaccinations are not any different. You haven’t reached heaven yet where there are no more diseases. You still live on earth and have to daily fight the battles of life. Vaccines help improve your fallen body’s resistance to diseases.
The LORD revealed to me that most of these conspiracy theories against vaccines are distracting people.
Vaccines, like other medical breakthroughs, are part of the signs/ wonders that The Holy Spirit has given to mankind without which millions would have been wiped out whether through small pox, polio, measles etc..
Signs and Wonders are not limited to a Sunday morning in the Church. Signs and Wonders happens in all arenas impacting mankind.
The airplane that you fly in is a sign/ wonder from the engineering arena. The computers, phones , wireless connections are all signs and wonders inspired by The Holy Spirit.
We read in the Scriptures, Satan tried to tempt Jesus asking Him to jump off a mountain or convert stones to bread etc., because he used the logic that God will protect you.
But we are warned to not test The LORD using the name of faith to behave foolishly (Luke 4:12). Where solutions are already provided, don’t test The LORD.
Every one has a free will and you eat the fruit of your choices daily. The Bible says some are weak in faith and others strong in faith; the strong ones are confident in their position in God with the knowledge that nothing that enters their bodies from outside can defile them Mark 7:15. No vaccine can do any harm to your spirit.
We are regenerate sons of God born again in the Spirit not in the flesh. Flesh on a daily basis goes through various contaminations whether from foods we eat or the polluted air we breathe.
Our fallen bodies need all the help it can get whether through food, nutrients, medicines in order to be a healthy vessel for the Spirit in the short time frame we are here on earth.
At the end of the day do what is necessary to keep your body, mind, finances, relationships healthy. But above all keep your gaze on The Spirit knowing that we are seated in the heavenly places.
