COVID-19 vaccine proponent Bill Gates now admits that the novel mRNA-derived formulas "... only slightly reduce the transmissions." These experimental drugs all seem to lose effectiveness within six months and are expected to require endless booster shots, similar to the annual flu shots. Gates said, "We need a new way of doing the vaccines."
Others feel the draconian efforts of governments and their ever-changing health analyses are alarming, if not tyrannical. Rather than working to protect the most vulnerable among us (including nursing home residents), the vaccination mandates are forced on nearly the whole population, even those who are understood to already be immunized by having had the illness or the vaccines. However, these "approved for emergency use only" mRNA vaccines and freedom-thrashing mandates have proven to be ineffective and inefficient for many.
Current Vaccines Don't Guarantee Immunity
Moderna Therapeutics is now set to begin its three-phased clinical trials with its COVID-19 vaccine for children, ages 6 months to 11 years old. Over 13,000 children, including infants, will participate in the three, multi-aged groupings for the study.
Pfizer is already administering grade-school-sized dosages of its "emergency use" vaccine while booster shots of the mRNA vaccines for adults are now being pushed. Also, the vaccine manufacturers are seeking emergency approval for early treatment pills to lessen the effects on those infected by the virus.
Masks are still being recommended indoors, in many countries and locations, because virologists are finding some fully vaccinated and some who have recovered from the virus and have antibodies are still thought to be potential spreaders of the virus.
The degrees of protection in these transmission scenarios seem to vary. A so-called "vaccine" that doesn't stop transmission over a sustained period of time is not really a vaccine but only a temporary, medical treatment, which may actually make the virus, at large, adapt and learn to grow stronger and more durable.
One California nurse expressed the frustration of many millions of already-vaccinated-residents when she asked the San Diego County Board of Supervisors,
"Why do the 'protected' need to be protected from the 'unprotected' by forcing the 'unprotected' to use the protection that didn't protect the 'protected' in the first place?"
It seems that if a few scores of people get sick after drinking a certain fruit juice, it is recalled from store shelves immediately. But as one online-forum commenter points out, if our government's own VAERS reporting system receives 875,000 adverse-effects vaccine reports--including 135,000 "serious" ones, with nearly 92,000 related hospitalizations--the reaction is "Hey, let's vaccinate the kids too!"
The commenter concluded, "This is madness." What do you think?
Now we are suddenly faced with a new strain of the current COVID-19 virus. Named the "Omicron variant," it is spreading from South Africa and is considered to be highly transmissible. Immunologists say it may infect an even larger group of people who may have avoided or been immune to the original COVID-19 virus and its earlier adaptations.
Meanwhile, the chairwoman of the South African Medical Association says they have actually seen only "mild" cases so far and called imposing travel restrictions on her nation "hasty" and "premature," at this point.
Claiming God's Precious Promises
We live in a fallen world and our bodies are subject to many morbidities, including those known to co-exist with viral infections such as hypertension, COPD, diabetes and "cardio-cerebrovascular diseases." During this pandemic, it seems more may have died with COVID than actually from COVID.
Meanwhile, believers should be encouraged by the promises of temporal healing and immunity, which God gave to Moses and the traveling families of the tribe of Israel as they fled Egypt and its attacking Pharaoh:
"If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you" (Exod. 15:26, NKJV).
These desert wanderers may have received many healings and multiple miracles but they all eventually died. It was another generation that entered the Promised Land where they too died.
Our Ultimate Healing
The rapid development of the current vaccines and medical treatments need to be acknowledged as unprecedented gifts of God's grace. But our ultimate healing may be through the "valley of the shadow of death," as we journey to our eternal home, prepared for us in heaven, by Jesus Himself (John 14:1-3). He urges us to be spiritually alert and prepared for this heavenly hope (Matt. 24:42-44).
However, as long as God continues to give us breath in this life experience, we should gratefully claim His healing power and precious promises each day, for He is "the Lord, who heals you."
