Some mistake that placating and obeying those in power who make these unconstitutional and draconian mandates that it will somehow stop the virus or that they will stop these measurements. When have you known someone to grab power and then say ‘ya know what I have enough power now’? It ain’t gonna happen. They will continue to enforce these measurements and then some, and cowing tow to evil will only embolden them that they can in fact do what they want and take away all your freedom. Many have clamored and held their breath for the end of the year 2020 as if all your problems and anxiety will magically be fixed at some special time marker. No. Take heart and live the revolution, love with reckless abandon today, as long as you can call today today. For death is always eminent and can seize you at anytime virus or not. God calls you to be here now still and present and listen, so that you may receive Him and be sent out to deliver His mission for you in this Life. The times are no more than us who live in them, “as we are so are the times,” and they will change when we change, and there shall be no Peace until all turn to God who is Peace Himself.
The greatest way to resist is to let Christ reign over your life. To live out the commandments despite being castigated or ridiculed for doing so. For staying on fire with zeal for the Faith no mater how unpopular it is to live the True Faith in today’s world. An Amen to Christ is a resounding no to the world and its ways which are destined to fail. Sing out joyfully always with a hymn in your heart. Worship and praise the One True Living God whenever and whereever you are. Proclaim the King of kings, Immanuel who is both coming and always here forever and ever, more than ever before. Proclaim liberty to all, all across the lands. And live freely, not in licentiousness, nor in legalism, and definitely not to way of man, but live freely in Christ letting Hope in the One who saves pour out to all the world.
We are vessels of His Love and Mercy and the more we commit acts of Love and Mercy, then the more of the Infinite God who is Love and Mercy Himself will increase in the world. When the world says not to worship, sing a merciful prayer for that person who resists you, for they do not resist you but Christ. Sing to them an Our Father, or Ave Maria, or Glory Be. True resistance is not held in any political party nor ideology, but only in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Therefore brothers and sisters, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind,” your heart, your soul, your Spirit, your entire being in Christ forever and ever. “So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.” “To be renewed in the Spirit of your minds,” is to put on the very likeness and righteousness of God. Do this steadfastly and always so that the Oneness between Father, Son, Holy Spirit, is forever One with our very being.
Store up His Word in your heart so that you may not sin. For we will need to be right with God for this warfare and our war is not against flesh and blood, not against our brothers and sisters, but the evil one who deceives them. We must fight the good fight, not because we are righteous, but the One who lives in us is and creates a thirst in us for the salvation of our neighbours’ souls. And for this warfare we will need to equip ourselves with the full armour of God. “For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.”
“God is Light.” “God is Love.” Let He inside of us radiate inward, outward, and every direction, salting the Earth, and purifying the air with His flavour and aroma. Children of God, we know that He who has overcame this world lives in us, “and by this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. Whoever says “I know Him” but does not keep His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps His Word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in Him: whoever says he abides in Him ought to walk in the same Way in which He walked.” For beloved…We must love one another not as men of this world, but as Christ commands us. So the resistance is not loving as the world does, nor is it rebelling against what God has made Holy, for to the pure all is pure, and to the defiled all defiled, but rather the resistance is to be children of God and live out His commandments. Even against, and I would say especially when, in the face of any powers that try to stop such practices.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” “For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments.”
