All of our national successes can be traced to one source: God's blessings.

[Darris McNeely] As I'm speaking, the COVID-19 vaccines in the United States and in England have begun to roll out. People have begun taking the first approved vaccines for the COVID-19 virus that was first diagnosed and seen, at least in America, just a little more than one year ago. What has happened with Operation Warp Speed, the development of a vaccine in essentially one year, and perhaps it can be said less than a year is unheard of. And of course, those who are in the know about what it takes to go through all the stages to develop a vaccine for any virus, any disease, are shaking their heads in amazement and wonder at what has happened with Operation Warp Speed at this time.

You know, I was reading about the polio vaccine that was first introduced in the United States in 1955. You know that it took nearly 40 years from the time that polio first really began to make inroads into people in the United States, which was 1916. It took nearly 40 years to come up then with a working vaccine through all the processes to then ship out and to curb that deadly disease that took the lives of many, many thousands of people and children, and crippled them for life in the United States and around the world.

And so what has been done here recently is really something to give credit to the medical profession, to the researchers, to the laboratories that did this, and to the government backing and support that cut through a lot of red tape that made it happen as well. But also just to understand that, in one sense, this has happened along with any number of other medical advances to fight disease in the world in the English speaking peoples.

I was reading a book that I often go to to understand a few things about this, "The History of the English-Speaking People Since 1900," by the British historian, Andrew Roberts. On page 424, and talking about the polio vaccine, he says "that it was one of the very many diseases for which doctors and scientists from the English-speaking peoples have found a cure since 1900 far more than the physicians have any other linguistic or political grouping before or since". And, of course, this was written more than 10 years ago, and now we have Operation Warp Speed to do this.

When it's all said and done, we need to ultimately give to God the credit for His blessings upon this land, this nation, in which things like this have been done.

In Deuteronomy 28:12 Deuteronomy 28:12The LORD shall open to you his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain to your land in his season, and to bless all the work of your hand: and you shall lend to many nations, and you shall not borrow.
American King James Version×
, God said to His people, and frankly, it applies to our English-speaking peoples today, that "The Lord," it says, "will bless the work of your hands." I think with Operation Warp Speed, God has blessed the work of the hands of the many who brought this vaccine to the public. And for that, we should be thankful in the work that has been done, but put it in the context of God's blessings, the Abrahamic blessings that He has given to the English-speaking peoples today, and remind us that good can still be done even at a time when there is a lot that is not so good, that hangs over the United States and threatens our future. Let's at least give credit where credit is due and the ultimate credit goes back to God.

That's BT Daily. Join us next time.

    It’s all around, bombarding us from every media platform of the WORLD. And yet, I didn’t expect to see all the subtle means of acceptance of it in the church. Does it stem from a misplaced desire to believe in something that may give temporary safety or an artificial sense of peace? Is it because we have learned to elevate the love of science over the love and protection of a God who heals? I’m concerned that our trust and praise of faceless corporations in conjunction with corrupt governments of men, instead of our own ability to analyze the depths of such a rushed vaccine, will potentially be the cause of much grief in the future. How will the prophetic famine and disease take a stronghold on the world? Will we have killed the natural, God-given immune responses because of mass vaccination to the extent that many humans can’t tolerate a simple virus ? For those who TRULY do not know, you must take the time to educate yourselves on every aspect of vaccines. Google will not be your friend in this endeavor, but with a sincere desire to peel off the veil, God will guide you in the journey. Start by reading a book like Dissolving Illusions by Suzanne Humphries. Continued...

    Ephesians 4:14-16 & 5:11-13 Ephesians 4:14, is about discernment, including biblical belief. What the world is wrapped in is cunning, craftiness and deceit at a scale and subtlety humans don’t perceive. The spirit of God renders great perception to His. Although the timing of the vaccines suggests it not to be the mark, one cannot deny the relationship to health economics, biometric data systems, the shift from gov-by-the- people to gov-by-the-technocracy, block-chain babies, human capital data markets, digital human management, etc., all linked, all global. These are occurring unnaturally because we have become inured to the things that define our current slavery, and there are those that benefit from our distractions, and in us believing that freedom is not an option. Every inaccuracy we nurse on creates a spiritually toxic bias of perception. We, however, called to be free, are blessed to comprehend the bitter truth of our reality, and have the spiritual strength to overcome ourselves and the illusions the world seeks to distort. Our unity, as warriors in Christ, has no place for the uncertainty pressed upon us. May all be well and choose with perception given to us.

    I won’t go into issues with vaccines, except to say, if you see this as a blessing you are partaking of the Fruit of the Forbidden Tree. The polio vaccine itself killed or injured thousands of innocent children, especially in its research stages… is this something God blessed… is it of God? But my main point is this: if this vaccine is a blessing from God, then COVID-19 is therefore a curse from God. Deut. 28, which you quoted (vs 12) has another side to the story – yes, blessings for OBEDIENCE but also cursings for DISOBEDIENCE. You can’t accept one without accepting the other. So, if this is a blessing from God, when then did this nation repent and turn to God to receive the blessing of “healing” (very loose quotes)? God says in II Chr. 7:14 “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, THEN I will forgive their sin and heal their land.” So much more to say… so many more verses… Deut. 7: 15, Deut. 28: 59-60, Ps. 102:2-4, Prov. 3:5-8 are just a few. Finally, I would be very careful in attributing to God something that may not actually be from Him, and especially not a blessing – Ez. 13:10 (entire ch).

    While I appreciate Mr. McNeely’s courage to take on this subject, I think it is way too soon to assume that this vaccine is a blessing. There have been some worrisome adverse reactions already reported, and even the CDC data shows some pretty high numbers for those who had to seek medical attention after having the initial vaccine. We have to be very careful before we assume that this is something that will benefit mankind. On top of that, the fact that this vaccine was rushed through much faster than other vaccines should be a warning sign with flashing lights. Is it safe to forego normal safety procedures and trials just to get something on the market at lightning speed, especially when this still is not a deadly virus for most people? On the other hand, if it turns out that this whole event was planned, then we have to presume the vaccine was also part of that plan. We really need to do our homework on this.

    Well, this is one way to divide the church again. The vaccine a blessing? There is no way to Biblically lump man-made cocktails into the realm of God's blessings. Is not God's perfect design of our immune system a blessing already? Mark my words, the end result will be that this vaccine will be a curse. Think of the implications. If people are conditioned to follow a pattern that allows them to keep the so-called freedoms they currently have: the ability to move about, go where they want to go, etc... and ultimately the ability to continue to buy and sell; where does that road end? Stand for something now, or the time will come when you will have compromised every visible marker on the road. When you are then presented with the final test of taking a mark and worshipping a beast versus excepting prison or death...you will take the mark. That's just how we are designed. I'd also like to point out that some of these vaccines have been noted to use "fetal cell lines" in them. Supposedly not Modernas or Pfizers if you believe that. What we are dealing with here is the sanctity of life and abortion. I for one do not support that. So much more to say but not enough space.
