Vaccinations and Our Great Physician

Exodus 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

I am the Lord that healeth thee.  I am the Lord your healer. I am the Lord your physician.

Oh hear the voice of Jesus. This is an important subject in these present circumstances which surround us at this time.  How are we to relate to the fears and circumstances associated with the present pandemic that surrounds us in such a time as this, the mandates of allopathic oriented world around us? Allopathic means the medications of the medical world around us. They have brought about circumstances so that the government inflicts mandates upon us that are stipulated by allopathic medicine.

As Gods children, are we to engage in the activisms of the anti-vaxers of today? Are we to engage? Are we anti-vaxers? If we read and study carefully, the present situations that were forseen by the Spirit of Prophecy and in the prophecies through their experiences in her time, you will realise that Ellen White and the Adventists of her time were living in the time of small pox and polio and they suffered as they were going about their missionary work. Some died of these terrible diseases. Sr White was asked, should we accept the medications of that time in regards to malaria? They were using a medication for that and polio.  Sr White made a statement saying we have to do the best we can and to prevent them from suffering from those terrible diseases. For small pox and polio, they received vaccinations and as a consequence of that, polio and small pox were eradicated in their present time to this point in time.  But in these times of vaccination predominance where not only are the vaccinations for polio and such like have been affective, we are now under a vaccination wave for chicken pox, flu, measles, whooping cough and now COVID.

With these influxes of vaccination, how shall we relate?  First and foremost, we must go to our great physician. We must hear Him. In this hour of divine service, as we draw near to Him, He is drawing near to us. Let us hear Him. The one who walked in the land of Judea, the one who healed the diseases of the people around Him, the great physician by miracles of healing, as Jesus sent forth his disciples in Luke 9, we hear him speaking. We read from verses 1 to 6. 

Luke 9:1 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. 2 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. 3 And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece. 4 And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart. 5 And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them. 6 And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where.

Not only did Jesus go about healing the sick, but so did they.  So it is for Gods church right through history. The counsel was given if any are sick among you, let him call the elders and pray over them. The healing of the sick was part of the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Right through to now, Gods promises to deal with our sicknesses, are there.

As we are listening to the voice of our great physician? This is his voice;

Psalm 103: 1 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. 2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: 3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; 4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; 5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

What does he do? He forgives all thine iniquities. And healeth all thy diseases. Do you recall the paralytic who was lowered down from the roof. Jesus said son, thy sins be forgiven thee and the man was relieved of the terrible condemnation he was under.  Then with the argument of the bystanders, he said, rise take up your bed and walk. It is because the Lord forgives that which causes us to suffer under disease that then he can also heal us.

He satisfies thy mouth with good things and that they youth is renewed like the eagles. I want to praise God as that is what he is doing to me everyday. He renews according to his promises.

Psalms 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

Another word for pestilence is virus.

Psalms 91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. 9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; 10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

Is this meat in due season for us right now? This is the great physician communicating his precious comforts to us. Gods children who dwell under his wings like that, who will believe him, they will claim that promise. They will not permit the fear that surrounds us today in this pandemic to overwhelm them at all. There will be threats that cause the fear, but because we love God and dwell under his feathers, perfect love casteth out all fear. It doesn’t mean that the fear doesn’t come up to us sometimes, but it is something that we deal with by our relationship with God.

He healeth how many diseases? All thy diseases. The plague will not come nigh thee he says. But those promises are conditional. I read the conditional aspect as in our scripture reading. We will see precisely the condition behind this promise that God will heal us. This is the promise and condition:

Exodus 15: 26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

What is the condition? If thou wilt diligently hearken to his voice. If you will do that which is right in who’s sight? In his sight.  If thou wilt keep, give ear to his commandments and keep all, how many? All his statutes. There God is drawing our attention to the instructions that God gave to his people as they were travelling to the promised land and along the journey. He gave the health statutes for their safe keeping.  He gave them instruction so that his promise will take place. It is reality of going to a doctor when you have a serious problem. You go to the doctor and he gives you treatment and instruction how to deal with your problem. If you do not do them, will you recover? It doesn’t make any sense.  The Lord is saying I am the Lord that heals you, and I am giving you my instructions and counsel. If you diligently follow that, none of these diseases will happen to you.  Nostradamus in the days of the bubonic plague, the people were dying by the thousands. Nostradamus was a Jew with biblical instructions. He was still practising witchcraft, but the village in France where he was, was free of the plague because he was teaching the people of the village hygiene laws. God had given instructions which were to be followed diligently as then he could be their physician.  I have no need to direct your mind to the 8 laws of health that have been brought to Gods people in these last days.

He has given us these laws of health whether it be diet in regards to the food we have been called upon to put into our bodies and the laws of how to eat those foods, then the instruction of the use of water for hygiene and internal use. Fomentations, the use of herbs, all the instructions given to us in the 8 laws of health. Right amount of rest and exercise. All these things were given to us in the spirit of prophecy, all those things in the 8 laws, there are a plethora of agencies that God has given us for us to be assured of our protection both from the diseases rampant today and from the plagues. Those promises are conditional on whether we are obeying our Lord. If we have failed to obey, then we come to him in confessions and repentance, he will heal your disease. As we do wrong things, we have to suffer the consequences. The curse causeless shall not come. If we ask him for forgiveness, and ask heal me of this disease, the Lord has promised to forgive and heal our diseases and not lay the diseases of Egypt. The modern diseases of today affected the Egyptians. God says I am not going to let you suffer the diseases that the Egyptians are showing.

God is true when we put into practises his counsel.  I had a daughter who was four years old who had rheumatic fever. We followed Gods directions. We did not take her to the hospital, we relied on our physician. As we treated her, she recovered beautifully and was stronger in health after.

When a person has rheumatic fever, the heart is damaged and they suffer for the rest of their life.  I had another daughter who at the age of ten months, she received what I dreaded most in my nursing years. She received a problem through a bacteria from the flu but it was found to the bacteria that causes lung infection. The bacteria that was affecting her was pneumonia and the pneumococcus was in her system and got caught in her bone in the upper shoulder.  It created a pus pocket in the bone and it is a serious condition. The only way the medical profession can deal with it, is by an operation and scoop out the pus which is not always successful. It also includes high doses of antibiotics. I met to my physician the natural way. Within four weeks this child recovered 100%. We followed the instruction.

By Gods grace we have nothing to fear when we follow the instruction of our great physician. Once we know what our physician tells us to do so He will protect us from the scourge of pandemic which we are meeting today, how do we deal with the authorities who are enforcing allopathic treatment – the vaccination?

This we also need to know so if we did receive a little dose of COVID and used Gods method to conquer that. We sometimes get virus’s and flus.  There are vaccinations for these flus. I have never had a flu vaccination. We have been able to get through the flu but many die of the flu virus. COVID is really playing havoc and the authorities are enforcing virtually mandating vaccination. How do we deal with that?

First and foremost, how do we deal with this? Anti-vaxers are protesting against the government and mandatory vaccinations. Are we to take side with them?

Amos 5:12 For I know your manifold transgressions and your mighty sins: they afflict the just, they take a bribe, and they turn aside the poor in the gate from their right. 13 Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time. 14 Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken. 15 Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.

Gracious to the remnant of Joseph. Are we to be part of the remnant? Is this our calling? We who are to be cared for by the Lord in this time, are called upon to be prudent. We shall keep silence in that time. How to deal with these challenges, don’t cause the ripple. Be wise.

Caution is to be prayerfully exercised by everyone who believes the truth. There are trying scenes before us, and we need to exercise great caution, keeping the door of our lips while the wicked are before us. We shall have to meet in our experience with men having fanatical zeal which will provoke those who hate the truth and it will be necessary to preserve a calm attitude and not state all we do know, for impressions will be made upon human minds that will, under the influence of Satan, grow to large proportions. TDG 250.2

How important we understand what is written.

There is need of watching unto prayer. The evils we shall meet have long been gathering and like a storm, will come upon many when they least expect it. While they cannot be charged with originating the evil, they precipitated it. Charges will be made which believers cannot refute, because they have not shown wisdom in the use of either the pen or the voice. TDG 250.3

Many laws will be enacted for the government of nations, calculated to oppress; and old laws that have practically become of none effect, will be resurrected. We need to move forward in our work understandingly and in faith, under the wise generalship of Jesus Christ. A great work is to be done for the Master in proclaiming the last message of mercy to our world, and we are dependent upon authorities and powers to find passage from one end of the world to another, and as long as we are dependent upon the powers that be, we must not divorce ourselves from them, for this is a worldwide message. TDG 250.4

We are to go forward quietly, and when our way is apparently blocked in one direction we are to make no condemnation of the powers that be, for in thus doing we are teaching other powers how to work to hedge up our way. We are not to stir up opposing elements or provoke retaliation or revenge. The climax will come soon enough. It is already stealing on as a thief in the night. And we can speak Bible truth which will not set opposing influences at work.—Manuscript 90, August 29, 1893, “Our Attitude Toward the ‘Powers That Be.’” TDG 250.5

Are we to be anti-vaxer activists? No, not at all. As Gods children we are to respect the authorities. The prudent will not start levelling their condemnation upon the government for what they are doing. As the vaccinations are being enforced, what are we to do? We are in need of remaining under the radar. Do not say too much. A vaccination passport is being discussed and in some places already taking it’s course.  While we are trying to remain under the radar, quietly getting on with our situation as best the Lord will help us, we read this interesting statement, that when we are brought to the forefront:

“Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life.” Every position of truth taken by our people will bear the criticism of the greatest minds; the highest of the world’s great men will be brought in contact with truth, and therefore every position we take should be critically examined and tested by the Scriptures. Now we seem to be unnoticed, but this will not always be. Movements are at work to bring us to the front, and if our theories of truth can be picked to pieces by historians or the world’s greatest men, it will be done. Ev 69.1

We will be brought to the front by the circumstances that the government are enforcing. But how shall we work? Very carefully and respectfully.

We must individually know for ourselves what is truth, and be prepared to give a reason of the hope that we have with meekness and fear, not in a proud, boasting, self-sufficiency, but with the spirit of Christ.—Letter 6, 1886. Ev 69.2

What we know and believe, communicate it with meekness and fear. Let us do it in our ranks and to others around us.

We are nearing the time when we shall stand individually alone to answer for our belief. Religious errors are multiplying and entwining themselves with Satanic power about the people. There is scarcely a doctrine of the Bible that has not been denied.—Letter 6, 1886. Ev 69.2

As the vaccination passport is being enforced and put upon us, we might not be able to go to different places anymore unless we become vaccinated. How do we deal with it? In meekness and fear as we are brought to the forefront and to give good reasoning how we won’t participate in the allopathic control but learning from Gods word and giving answers on how we protect ourselves and others from these contagions. The reasoning that comes from Gods word can reach out for the people that are enforcing these things to gain exemption. We are appealing for exemptions. As we do this, trust in God. Be patient and wait on Him.

Waiting upon God, trust Him. One thing we need to understand in this present challenge, we must NOT look on the unworthiness to submit to the vaccination on the same ground as the Sabbath/Sunday law (The Mark of the Beast). Don’t confuse it with the Sunday law. If there is a mandate and we cannot get around it or we will die, in reference to the vaccination, we can be assured that if are going to be given a dangerous ingredient, we have nothing to fear as we read the words of our great physician.

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

They shall take up serpents, a serpent with deadly venom will kill you. That is what happened to Apostle Paul, he was bitten by a serpent and he didn’t die. If we have to take up poison in our body as we have no choice, it will not kill us. All these speculations causing fear and anxiety, even among believers we are not to worry about.

Let us follow the counsel of our great physician to deal with the terrible contagion that is about us today and follow his counsel diligently that every method that he has provided to heal us and prevent it, we will intelligently engage in. Deal respectfully with the medicals and authorities. We are to shun a spirit of conspiracy reactions. This is not for Gods children. May God help us in such a time as this to follow the instruction as we have been hearing his word that we will be wise and understanding towards the authorities that we will meet. Movements are bringing us to the forefront step by step.

May we take to hear what our great physician has spoken to us in his word.

Amen.
