What We Shouldn’t Allow To Happen ( in the time of shaking)

Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.  And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:(Hebrews 12:25-28)

We are living in the time of shaking. Shaking, like all of God’s methods of trial and testing, does not add anything to your faith nor does it take anything away. Shaking merely reveals what is truly grounded in your soul and what is not.

I am beginning to see and hear reports as to how the current Covid crisis is beginning to affect believers, even to the point of dividing us. A good many have just abandoned fellowship and the support of the local church out of fear of it. What about the command ,”Don’t forsake the assembling of yourselves together as you see the day appearing”?

Do we believe we were put into the body of Christ or not? Is it a conviction to you or a mere preference, that we are “members one of another….the body of Christ”. Is Jesus in the church or isn’t he? “Where two or more are gathered together, there am I in the midst of you”.

I am even beginning to get reports that some are shunning others. Christian People who have received the Covid shot are rejecting fellowship with other Christians who haven’t received it, out of fear that they might spread the disease.

We are followers of the ONE who went and touched Lepers, and our Christian forbearers once took exposed children off of the streets, during plague times to show them the Love of Jesus and minister to them. Now we are afraid to be in the same room with a brother or sister based on a vaccination?

How can this be? Our faith is being tested, little flock. Do we love Jesus or don’t we? Do we love each other or not?

Covid is being used to divide us. It is not my purpose to pontificate on the utility of vaccines or anything about Covid itself as a disease.

We don’t condemn people for taking the shots or for rejecting them for various reasons. This is at this point a Romans 14 issue. Everyone has to inform their own heart and conscience and do what they think best. I definitely;y don’t think the vaccine is the Mark of the Beast.

What is moving me to write this is to show you that in many cases your faith is being put to the test, and underneath every test, there is a religious principle at stake, some spiritual revelation is being called into question, and thus Christ is either being confessed or denied.

Is fellowship physically dangerous? Will singing with the church threaten your health? Can participation in Communion possibly harm you? if a brother or sister has a conviction about not being vaccinated, should you disfellowship them?

I am not saying that if someone is presenting heavy symptoms of a communicable disease we should all just welcome them into our close proximity.(Common sense).

But I am hearing of people disfellowshipping their brothers and sisters on the basis of whether or not they took the shot. This , we shouldn’t allow to happen. We are Christians. We don’t fear each other, nor do we paralyze ourselves in fear. Perfect Love casts out fear. We pray for each other, and seek God together, that is what Christians do.

Paul rebuked Peter for disfellowshipping the Gentiles, on the basis of Pharisaic separation. The Covid cult is Pharisaic also . I do not deny there is a Covid, an actual disease which has killed people.

But on the other hand there has and is a Psychological operation against the public, which Governments are using to control people, and to curtail certain activities that some in power object to. Church would be one of them. We need to meet together and worship. We need to be able to look into each other’s face without fear and to hug and lay hands on each other calling upon God. Don’t let them separate us!

Is not the cup of blessing which we bless a sharing in the blood of Christ? Is not the bread which we break a sharing in the body of Christ? Since there is one bread, we who are many are one body; for we all partake of the one bread.( I Corinthians 10:16-17)

    I was self-isolating for nearly three months (due to 8 medical conditions that make me very vulnerable) to avoid seasonal flu before Covid showed up. I had pneumonia twice in three years just prior to Covid and nearly died. I meet believers (elderly like myself) in brief car-to-car visits (we don’t hug). I can’t sit that long in a regular chair due to circulation–must be a recliner. I take communion with my church when they take it (but I’m online). Are you saying I need to be going to church regardless? Are you giving any leeway for vulnerable people? I hope so. (And given my severe drug reactions in recent years, there is no way I will take the vaccine.)

    • billrandles says:

      No Ruth I am certainly not. Quarantine for the vulnerable and susceptible is Biblical. I am only saying that people shouldn’t shun people who didn’t;t take the vaccine, we should see what is happening and do what we can to stay in fellowship. Obviously you are a special case, you have suffered much and I hope you have local church who will keep you in some sort of touch. God bless you dear, pretty soon Jesus will come

      • Ruth L says:

        Thanks, Pastor Bill. I’ve been eagerly waiting for Jesus to come since I was 27, so I’m hoping it will be sooner rather than later. (A few years ago I had just finished praying about the Rapture because I was discouraged. When I finished I turned on the TV and an unknown movie was playing–on the screen was a yacht out on the ocean. They showed the back of the yacht–the name of it was Rapture. I believed that was a token from the Lord for me. The unknown movie, I learned later, was Red Eye.)

    Well said brother Bill. A timely word that is much needed and appreciated.

  3. Deemar says:

    So true.
    “If a house is divided against itself it will not be able to stand.”

    And, our enemy knows that his time is short. He is pulling out all the stops to: seek, kill, destroy.
    We must be wise as serpents and gentle as doves… “discerning the times” and using the “full armor of God” to protect ourselves from his fiery darts. We must cling to Jesus and other true believers now more than ever, knowing that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, LOVE, and a sound mind! We must rise above these evil schemes; the LORD is our Protector and Provider.

  4. Geraldine Burden says:

    In total agreement with you brother Bill.

  5. GJ says:

    There is an outright blatant assault on humanity happening, what appears to be, across the nations. I see scripture similarly describing what I see. Is there a connection between the two? Is God revealing the future of those that embrace this… what I call… culture of death? Do our actions and words, determined by whom we fear, indicate the chart of our course to eternal reward… or punishment…

    Love for others is honest, respects them by asking and encouraging, for their good… while evil hatred for others manipulates them through deception and coercion wanting to destroy them…

    The deeper we go into this tyranny, the more I realize… that we don’t get away with anything before God. It will become more difficult to… fake it. What’s in our heart and mind… our soul… our ability to discern… will be revealed by the choices we make.

    If we’re willing, or give assent, to snuff-out the freedoms, dignity, and lives of others… we have just killed the voice, the defense, for ours. If we exterminate our children through abortion… our future is, also.

    Thank you for being the voice of reason, Pastor Bill. Your Godly wisdom and knowledge brings perspective, where Governments and MSM bring fear when we are susceptible to their lies.
    I believe one of the biggest reasons the church is behaving the way it is, is because there is no understanding of the times we are living in coupled with the reasons behind that, for which most of us who ‘follow’ you are hopefully aware. The church is in a very weakened state and vulnerable to the wiles of the enemy.
    “Therefore, my people have gone into captivity because they have no knowledge.”
    But God………..He is still on His throne of grace, mercy and love, faithfulness, justice and righteousness and HE IS COMING BACK!
    Our focus, more than ever, has to be on The Great Commission. The days are quickly becoming darker and soon, no man will be able to work. There is a harvest to be reaped but the labourers are few. Many of them are cowering in fear outside of true Christian fellowship.
    Jesus warns us these times are coming. We are now in those times. He also frequently tells us ‘ Do not fear’. Do we trust Him or not? Have we not learned through His faithfulness in our own lives that He is who He says He is? He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and there is none like Him. He is our ONLY hope. Let’s not keep it to ourselves. Let’s go out and reap that harvest while we still can.

    I just think of this verse…
    Matthew‬ ‭24:10‬ ‭
    At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another.

    I kinda thought it was going to be because people were going to be severely disappointed when the pre-trib rapture is proven to be false. Perhaps that isn’t the only way Mathew 24:10 will happen?

    A spirit of division was allowed into the church as soon as we began wearing masks and keeping six feet away from each other! The spirit of Antichrist was allowed into the churches when the pastors allowed GOVERNMENTS to dictate the terms of how the Body of Christ worships their Saviour! Imagine, CHRIISTIANS treating each other as if they are simply BAGS OF DISEASE instead of brothers and sisters in CHRIST! Being afraid of each other! The vaccine will only drive the wedge further. There is a reason why Paul ended many of his Epistles by admonishing believers to “greet one another with a holy kiss”. This was way before we had any masks, hand sanitizers, or vaccines – and there was plenty of disease to go around. Christians are not supposed to be afraid of death, and we are NOT showing love by treating each other as vectors of disease rather than as human beings. This is EVIL, period. My church has never felt the same since reopening after the first lockdown. When my husband and I attended – being the only ones not wearing masks – we looked around at all these strange faceless people keeping careful to stay away from each other, and we had to choke back tears. I felt the grief of the Holy Spirit. We are to meet with God FACE-TO-FACE and to not hide our identities from one another. This is the church who claims to follow Jesus Christ, the One who reached out to touch LEPERS. I am ashamed of the Church and its cowardice. We are violating the Ninth Commandment – “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour”. You bear false witness when you accuse your neighbour of being diseased and a threat to you when you have no way to prove it. Your masks and distancing are ACCUSATIONS. As Pastor Bill said, it is one thing to stay away from an obviously sick and symptomatic person – that is just common sense. But we have bought into the lie that EVERYONE IS A THREAT to our well-being. How incredibly pleased Satan must be with all this.
    Very few Pastors are standing up to this. Here is one of them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kZVtGwkid8
    Thank you, as always, Pastor Bill, for your messages!

    Don’t those who have taken that vaccine realize they can still get Covid and also give it to others? That’s what is sad, that people are not well informed of what that vaccine does for them. I agree wholeheartedly with your post. Thank you for having the courage to write it. I pray for you and your ministry as God leads me.

  10. I do not claim to have ‘the’, or even, ANY, answers here. I say the following with great trepidation and simply seeking more clarity for myself, from my brothers and sister in Christ; as I am greatly troubled by all of what is happening.

    So, here goes: I am not fully convinced that the vaccine, masks, and the various ‘responses to covid’, is a Romans 14 issue. This vaccine isn’t mere food, or which day one worships on, but a very high tech medicine with what I see as very questionable (and unethical) things in it, going into someone’s body, possibly altering it forever.

    I also see a few parallels between the Christian push and pressure to get vaccinated– and to stay socially distanced and all that– ‘for the greater good’ and those early believers who were ‘of the circumcision’ (pushing circumcision on new gentile converts) in the New Testament. Those ‘mutilators of the flesh’ were rebuked by the apostles, and, ultimately, a split occurred.

    Would welcome your thoughts on that, Pastor Bill. Thanks.

    Pastor Bill, and readers:. Please listen to Dr Sherri Tenpenny, a Christian doctor and expert on vaccines. She has spent hundreds of hours studying the covid “vaccine” (which is actually an experimental gene therapy) and in this video, she outlines EXACTLY what it does and will do. This is horrifying and EVERYONE needs to hear this. https://rumble.com/vfhtc5-dr.-sherry-tenpenny-and-steve-quayle-on-the-hagmann-report-full-show-472021.html
