What day to Pentecost are you counting today?

I am counting six today (Friday, 4/9). I know there are many calendars and ways of calculating Yah’s set apart days, and I have no guarantee what I am following is correct, but it is what my home fellowship is doing, so I am joining them. I am involved in another home fellowship group that will be keeping Passover later this month, so I will join with them also. Between the two, maybe some of us will be right. In any case, I know Abba Father is pleased we are trying our best to be obedient to Him, and soon Yeshua will come and set us all straight. Maranatha – come soon, Yeshua HaMashiach.

OH, CLAP YOUR HANDS, ALL YOU PEOPLE!  SHOUT TO YHVH WITH THE VOICE OF TRIUMPH!  FOR ADONAI MOST HIGH IS AWESOME; HE IS A GREAT KING OVER ALL THE EARTH. He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet. PSALM 47:1-3.

Because YOUR LOVING KINDNESS IS BETTER THAN LIFE, MY LIPS SHALL PRAISE YOU. THUS I WILL BLESS YOU WHILE I LIVE; I WILL LIFT UP MY HANDS IN YOUR NAME.  MY SOUL SHALL BE SATISFIED AS WITH MARROW AND FATNESS, AND MY MOUTH SHALL PRAISE YOU WITH JOYFUL LIPS. PSALM 63:3-5

PRAISE THE LORD!  OH, GIVE THANK TO THE LORD, FOR HE IS GOOD!  FOR HIS MERCY ENDURES FOREVER. PSALM 106:1

Discernment is Critical in these Last Days

I started listening to a Simon Parkes video a while back that a friend had sent me a link to. It sounded good and like the guy knew what he was talking about. I shared it with some of my home Sabbath fellowship group members and received an email back from one sister asking if I had actually watched the video to the end – I had not. I did. The guy is not on solid ground. I immediately emailed back to the group, apologized, and told them to ignore the link I had sent them.

Parkes and others like him are very good at saying what people want to hear, but then they slip into reptilians, alien abductions and other questionable stuff. I like what this believer and Trump supporter had to say about Parkes:

https://welovetrump.com/2021/01/11/this-is-why-i-have-not-covered-the-simon-parkes-videos/

Discernment is critical in these last days. Satan knows what will appeal to people and pull them off the narrow path of staying in the word and looking to God alone, and he is throwing it at us by the shovelful. I had to catch myself up big time, as I had wandered off into that miry muck of “reporting” that is Satan’s playground, and found myself spending more time listening to the worldly garbage than reading and studying God’s word. When the “news” of the day becomes more attractive to us than the word for the day, we have wandered into the spider’s web and must get ourselves out quickly before we are devoured by the adversary.

The Pilgrim’s Progress

If you have never seen the adaptation or read the book, today might be a great day to do so. This musical adaptation is one of the better ones and is particularly entertaining and moving, with powerful messages throughout to the very end.

The Pilgrim’s Progress is a 1678 Christian allegory written by John Bunyan, and is regarded as one of the most significant works of religious, theological fiction in English Literature.  It has been translated into more than 200 languages, and has never been out of print. It has also been cited as the first novel written in English.  

Bunyan began his work while in the Bedfordshire county prison for violations of the Conventicle Act of 1664, which prohibited the holding of religious services outside the auspices of the established Church of England.

The Germ Theory Deception

Verizon Nationwide Coverage Map

Some info is shared here, but click on link to access full info including photos and videos. Questioning people wonder why the places with the most 5g coverage are also the places with the most “coronavirus” cases resulting in actual sickness and death – Wuhan, China being a prime example of where the most 5g 1.

The Germ Theory Deception – Viruses, 5G , Vaccines, ‘coronavirus’, PCR test – Entity Art

Introduction:

Have you ever questioned Germ Theory?

Our whole society is based on it. The whole medical profession is based on it. It is why they give us vaccines. Do you think it is probably something we should look into? Do you even know the alternatives to Germ Theory?

Did you know Louis Pasteur, the man who came up with Germ Theory, said that he was wrong at the end of his life? (More information on that later)

Did you know that there have been studies / experiments carried out that showed you cannot catch influenza, and various other viruses, from someone else?

Did you know that there are many Doctors, scientists, researchers and nutritionists that do not agree with Germ Theory?

Doctors, scientists, researchers and nutritionists that say you cannot catch a virus and that a virus is made by your own body to cleanse you of toxicity.

Does all the toxicity and chemicals that we are in contact with on this planet have an effect on us? (e.g chemtrails, chemicals in tap water, ‘health’ products, cleaning products, industrial pollution, processed food, hygiene products, weed killers, insecticides, vaccines etc etc)

Is Germ Theory also related to the 5G roll out? Is 5G bad for us?

Not many hear about all this below, as if this Germ Theory collapses it would change everything. The massive Pharmaceuticals would lose many Billions or Trillions of pounds, even perhaps go out of business, and nobody would consent to the poisonous vaccines that our governments are always trying to give us.

Has Germ Theory been one of the biggest ever deceptions?

Some quotes to begin with – from some Doctors and a Nutritionist:

“In all that I have witnessed inside and outside of laboratories, there is only one cause of disease: Industrial pollution in medication, food, air, soil and water. Strengthening a body’s constitution and lymphatic system is the first step to reversing/curing disease” – Aajonus Vonderplantiz

“…Viruses are simply the excretions of a toxic cell. Viruses are pieces of DNA or RNA, with a few other proteins. They butt out from the cell. They happen when the cell is poisoned. They are not the cause of anything.” – Thomas Cowan MD on Rudolf Steiner’s insights.

“You’re working under a wrong premise to begin with and you’re never going to find the answer if you do that. Viruses have no nucleus. There’s no respiratory system. There’s no circulatory system. There’s no digestive system. Viruses are not alive. That’s like saying soap is alive. They’re not alive. They are solvents. They are soaps. However, more accurately, they are enzymes to fractionate tissue for waste elimination.” – Aajonus Vonderplanitz.

“We agree with those members of the profession who hold that no germ causes tuberculosis. Germs do not cause any disease. Further, we agree that there is more harm in the fear of germs than there is in the germs themselves.” — Timely Truths on Human Health – Simon Louis Katzoff, M.D. 1921

“The entire fabric of the germ theory of disease rests upon assumptions which not only have not been proved, but which are incapable of proof, and many of them can be proved to be the reverse of truth. The basic one of the unproven assumptions, wholly due to Pasteur, is the hypothesis that all the so-called infections and contagious disorders are caused by germs.” – M.L. Leverson, M.D

“We said before that so-called “germs” are ubiquitous. They are ever present, in many varying forms in both healthy and sick people. These microbes kick into what modern scientists call ‘pathogens’, when the media is toxic and conducive to clean up. When you enter into a healing crisis, and your body is throwing off toxins, these “germs” appear out of your very substance, to help eliminate, process and break down these toxins. Germs have absolutely no causal relationship to disease. But germs do appear to help you clean out, because put quite simply, your disease is your cure!” – Dr. William P. Trebing – Good-Bye Germ Theory – P.154

The bright garish image on the title picture is not what a ‘virus’ looks like. These brightly coloured complex images you see on the internet or MSM are made up CGI images. This image below is showing you what ‘viruses’ look like under an electron microscope: (click link above to see referenced photos).

“What is it that they see under an electron microscope?

Since a virus has never been visualized under an electron microscope a methodology had to be devised in order to “extract” substances which were supposedly the result of viral activity.

Let’s use the example of Polio which was supposedly the first virus identified and then photographed under an electron microscope. What we are shown are in fact “artificial particles” which involves the complex process of suctioning an indifferent mass through a very fine filter into a vacuum which is then photographed. It is not something that is actually seen in the blood or in a tissue sample!

This form of research is highly contaminated and yet it is accepted and published in the scientific community. The question is why? Is there an agenda?” – https://www.gnmonlineseminars.com/covid-19-part-i/

(The criteria needed to identify a virus are discussed in later sections. There is also a link in the Additional Resource Section to an article about how useless the PCR tests are.)


Pasteur – Bechamp – Germ Theory – Terrain Theory

As previously mentioned, we are living in a society based around the Germ Theory — but perhaps the most famous proponent of it actually recanted it on his deathbed.

Louis Pasteur Recants His Germ Theory:

On his deathbed Louis Pasteur said “Bernard was correct. I was wrong. The microbe (germ) is nothing. The terrain (milieu) is everything.”

He is saying that his Germ Theory is wrong and that the Terrain Theory is correct.

Many do not see Pasteur as credible and suggest he was plagiarist, dishonest and an imposter – and he clung to his theory even though much evidence disputed it – and when he had nothing to lose he admitted that his theory was false.

“Louis Pasteur was not an honest, creditable individual. If you look back into the history of the medical profession and the various ideas regarding the cause of disease that were held by leading physicians before Pasteur first promulgated his notorious “germ theory”, you will find convincing evidence that Pasteur discovered nothing, and that he deliberately appropriated, falsified and perverted another man’s work.”

https://www.healingnaturallybybee.com/you-cannot-catch-bugs-germs-bacteria-or-candidafungi/

After I have shown you an overview of both of these theories I will provide videos and more information.

GERM THEORY (PASTEUR)

  1. The body is sterile.
  2. Disease arises from micro-organisms outside the body.
  3. Micro-organisms are generally to be guarded against.
  4. The function of micro-organisms is constant.
  5. The shapes and colours of micro-organisms are constant.
  6. Every disease is associated with a particular micro-organism.
  7. Micro-organisms are primary causal agents.
  8. Disease can “strike” anybody.
  9. To prevent disease we have to “build defences.”

TERRAIN THEORY or MICROZYMIAN THEORY or CELLULAR THEORY (BERNARD)(BÉCHAMP)

  1. Microbes exist naturally in the body.
  2. Disease arises from micro-organisms within the cells of the body.
  3. These intracellular micro-organisms normally function to build and assist in the metabolic processes of the body.
  4. The function of these organisms changes to assist in the catabolic (disintegration) processes of the host organism when that organism dies or is injured, which may be chemical as well as mechanical.
  5. Micro-organisms are pleomorphic (having many forms): they change their shapes and colors (shape-shift) to reflect the condition of the host.
  6. Every disease is associated with a particular condition.
  7. Disease results when microbes change form, function, and toxicity according to the terrain of the host. Hence, the condition of the host organism is the primary causal agent.
  8. Disease is built by unhealthy conditions.
  9. To prevent disease we have to create health.

Germ Theory is very pro-vaccine…

…. whereas Terrain Theory is very anti-vaccine.

Not only did Louis Pasteur recant his Germ Theory but it is still just a theory, it has not been proven, but society in general and Big Pharma use it. It benefits these enormous corporations and the (((Elites))).


Videos – Viruses

Here is a talk from Thomas Cowan MD – who served as vice president of the physicians association of anthroposophic medicine. He talks about viruses and 5G. Like the many other Doctors, Researchers and Nutritionists, that are quoted below, he is saying that you cannot catch viruses.

He also talks about how in 1918 the Boston Health Department investigated the contagiousness of flu – believe it or not they got snot from peoples noises and injected it into healthy people who didn’t have the flu – and not one time could they make the next person sick. (This experiment is described in more detail in a later section)

He discusses how Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner- a social reformer, architect, economist and esotericist – also dismissed the Germ Theory.

Dr Cowan is not saying 5G causes ‘coronavirus’ in this video – he is saying 5G and the electrification of the Earth is detrimental to our health in general. And his main point is that the toxins and poisons we are exposed to are causing us to get sick, and that our bodies create viruses to rid us of the toxins.

(YouTube keep deleting this video – so I have to keep finding re-uploads – I have embedded a re-upload I recently found – the quality is not as good and there are subtitles overlaid, but you can see and hear him just fine)https://www.youtube.com/embed/00I7675Q2oQ?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent

I transcribed part of this Dr Thomas Cowan video for you:

“…Viruses are simply the excretions of a toxic cell. Viruses are pieces of DNA or RNA, with a few other proteins. They butt out from the cell. They happen when the cell is poisoned. They are not the cause of anything.

And the first way I would encourage you to think about this is – if you were a famous dolphin doctor, right, and you had been studying dolphins in the arctic circle for hundreds of years, or at least a long time, and the dolphins were fine – and then they call you up: ‘Fred, all the dolphins, or a lot of the dolphins, are dying in the Arctic circle, can you come and investigate?’… Right?

And you have one question to ask…So, a show of hands – how many of you would say ‘I want to investigate a dolphin to see the genetic makeup of that dolphin?’ – Nobody, because that’s stupid. How many of you would say – ‘I want to see if this dolphin and that dolphin has a virus, because it might be contagious and that’s why all these dolphins are getting sick?’ That fella…(points to one guy) How many of you would say – excuse my French here – ‘Did somebody put some shit in the water here? Like Exxon Valdes?’ Anybody? Everybody. Because that’s what happened. And your cells get poisoned, they try to purify themselves by excreting debris, which we call viruses.

If you go to the current theory of viruses called exosomes, and the latest head of the NIH giving a talk on the complexity of viruses, you will see this is perfectly inline with the current thinking on what a virus really is.

I had a dramatic example of this when I was growing up, right outside our house was a wetlands – and it was full of frogs – and the frogs kept me up at night, so I taped the windows, in the spring they made a big racket. And then overtime the frogs were all gone. How many think the frogs had genetic disease? How many think that the frogs had a virus? How many think that somebody put DDT into the water? That’s what happened. Diseases are poisonings.” – Dr Thomas Cowan

The next video is of Aajonus Vonderplanitz. He is a nutritionist who pioneered the Raw Primal Diet. I have read his books, watched many of his videos online and read transcripts and articles of his work online. I follow his diet and it has been transformative for me and massively improved my health. You can find a great many testimonials from people online, who say that his diet saved their life or reversed their conditions and health problems. Here he is explaining what a virus is.https://www.youtube.com/embed/7ZjvgHdAD5M?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent

I moved these two videos up from my Additional Resource section into this one. The first is only about 6 minutes long. It is Amandha Vollmer giving a very good overview – it is actually a very good video for introducing people to this topic. The second is T.C Fry going in to more depth.https://www.youtube.com/embed/0Q9XqmxMjhU?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparenthttps://www.youtube.com/embed/_-_HoE-dRv0?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent

There is also a video by Tom Barnett at the end of this article, in my Additional Resources section. He also explains how you cannot catch a virus. (Tom’s video keeps getting removed by YouTube.. but I found a re-upload) There are also some videos by Dr Stefan Lanka in that section, saying the same things.


Experiments / Studies

Here are some experiments that refute the Germ Theory:

1 – Deer Island – 150 U.S. Public Health Service Experiments from 1919 prove that disease is not transmittable:

Taken from the book ‘Fasting and Man’s correct diet’ – by R.B.Pearson 1921https://www.youtube.com/embed/khec-jvZx9E?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent

“A number of different experiments were made on 68 volunteers from US naval detention training camp on deer Island.

Several groups of men were inoculated with pure cultures of Pfeiffer’s bacillus, with secretions from the upper respiratory passages, and with blood from typical cases of influenza. About 30 men had the germs sprayed or swabbed in nose and throat.

They say of the results: “in no instance was an attack of influenza produced in any one of the subjects. “

10 more men were taken to the bedside of 10 new cases of influenza, spent 45 minutes with them, and each well man had 10 sick men cough in his face.

They say of these cases: “none of these volunteers developed any symptoms of influenza following this experiment.”

In another article the results of similar experiments in San Francisco are described.

In his experiments one group of 10 men had emulsifying cultures of Pfeiffer’s bacillus with no results in seven days observations.

Other groups of men ( 40 in all ) Received emotions of secretions from the upper respiratory passages of active cases of influenza which were instilled into nose by medicine dropper or atomizer.

Of these it says: “In every case the results were negative so far is the reproduction of influenza is concerned. The men were all observed for seven days after inoculation. “

Last, but not least, Dr. John B Fraser, in an article entitled “do germs cause disease? “In the physical culture magazine for May, 1919, says that experiments carried out in Toronto in 1911, 1912 in 1913 prove that germs only appear after the onset of the disease and goes on to say “and this fact lead to the supposition that germs were simply a by product of disease and possibly harmless “

He also describes experiments where millions of germs were fed to patients in their food, or swabbed over the tonsils and soft palate, under the tongue and in the nostrils, and still no evidence of disease was discernible.

The Germs used in the experiment included the germs of diphtheria, pneumonia, typhoid fever, meningitis and tuberculosis and no evidence of the diseases have developed in nearly 5 years.

He says: “during the years 1914 through 1918, 150 experiments were carried out carefully and scientifically and yet absolutely no signs of disease followed.”

Now this evidence refutes the idea that we can catch a virus and that there can be virus pandemics.” — The Natural Human Diet (‘Fasting and Man’s correct diet’ – by R.B.Pearson 1921)

2 – These experiments are discussed in a book by E.W. Cordingley, M.D:

“Medical doctors are working on the germ theory of disease… But the germ theory is already weakening and is due for being thrown aside. Dr. Fraser of Canada and Dr. Powell of California have experimented with billions of germs of all varieties, but they have been unable to produce a single disease by the introduction of germs into human subjects. Dr. Waite tried for years to prove the germ theory, but he could not do so. During the World War an experiment was conducted at Gallop’s Island Massachusetts, in which millions of influenza germs were injected into over one hundred men at the Government hospital, and no one got the flu. Germs are scavengers.” — Principles and Practice of Naturopathy. E.W. Cordingley, M.D.., N.D.,A.M.

3 – Boston and San Francisco – The Failed Infection Attempts – Also discussed here in the book, Virus Mania, by Torsten Engelbrecht et al

In order to be able to better assess the puzzling mass disease, an attempt to a simulated infection was undertaken with volunteers in Boston in November 1918. These were 62 healthy sailors charged with delinquency and sent to prison. They had been promised a pardon under the condition that they take part in an experiment. 39 of them had not had influenza, so the theory was that they would be particularly susceptible to infection and illness. But the results proved nothing of the sort, as American scientific journalist Gina Kolata describes in her book Influenza (Kalata, Gina, Influenza. Die Jagd nach dem Virus, Fischer, 2003):

“Navy doctors collected the mucus from men who were desperately ill from the flu, gathering thick viscous secretions from their noses and throats. They sprayed mucus from flu patients into the noses and throats of some men and dropped it into other men’s eyes. In one attempt, they swabbed mucus from the back of the nose of a man with the flu and then directly swabbed one patient’s nasal septum and rubbed it directly onto the nasal septum of one of the volunteers.

Trying to simulate what happens naturally when people are exposed to flu victims, the doctors took ten of the volunteers onto the hospital ward where men were dying of the disease. The sick men lay huddled on their narrow beds, burning with fever, drifting in and out of sleep in a delirium. The ten healthy men were given their instructions: each was to walk up to the bed of a sick man and draw near him, lean into his face, breathe in his fetid breath, and chat with him for five minutes. To be sure that the healthy man had had a full exposure to the sick man’s disease, the sick man was to exhale deeply while the healthy man drew the sick man’s breath directly into his own lungs. Finally, the flu victim coughed five times in the volunteer’s face.

Each healthy volunteer repeated these actions with ten different flu patients. Each flu patient had been seriously ill for no more than three days-a period when the virus or whatever it was that was causing the flu should still be around in his mucus, in his nose, in his lungs.

But not a single healthy man got sick.”

A comparable experiment, carried out under much stricter conditions, took place in San Francisco, with 50 imprisoned sailors. But, once again, the results did not correspond with what the doctors had expected:

“Scientists were stunned. If these healthy volunteers did not get infected with influenza despite doctors’ best efforts to make them ill, then what was causing this disease? How, exactly, did people get the flu?” – Virus Mania pages, 226-227.

I Wonder When the People of God will Begin Obeying Him Instead of Pagan Rome

“If I close the sky so there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send a plague among My people, and if My people who are called by my Name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.” 2 Chronicles 7:13-15. No one wants to consider the last thing God is calling us to do – “turn from our wicked ways”.

I wonder when the people who are called by YHVH’s name will actually begin to consider their wicked ways, and start obeying Him. We know the wages of sin is death, and sin is transgression of the law (Torah), and yet the churches continue to rebelliously walk in their wicked ways, contrary to the way Yeshua /Jesus showed us, while teaching that it is good and right to disobey the Torah of YHVH. They teach that people should instead obey the pagan antichrist system of Roman Catholicism and keep the Pope’s established days that honor the sun god (hence the sunday, which no where in scripture is ever commanded, and which Rome herself proudly proclaims having established), instead of God’s day that He blessed and sanctified, and has established as His seal.

Since the plague came, followed by a boldly stolen election, unrivaled censorship, removal of freedom of speech, liberty, and justice, believers have been fasting, praying and seeking God in a way not seen in a long time. I truly believe however that no amount of prayer and false repentance will do a thing to move the hand of God to hear our prayers and heal our land. Our only course is to turn away from our wicked pagan ways, humble ourselves and turn as a body to keeping His holy set apart days (Leviticus 23), starting with His day of rest (Exodus 20:8-11), His memorial of creation, which He instituted on the seventh day (Genesis 2:2-3), and has never changed, nor could without redoing creation and choosing a different day to rest on, or breaking His own word.

It is time for the church to stop being the unlearned and unstable ones Peter warned of, who wrest Paul’s writings and twist them to their own destruction. Paul never changed the Sabbath, Yeshua never changed the Sabbath, Emperor Constantine in 331 AD enacted the venerable day of the sun, and the Roman Catholic Church adopted it in 361.

As for me and my house, we serve the LORD and keep His Torah, not the false doctrine of harlot Rome. When all who call themselves followers of Yeshua / Jesus start to do the same, then we will see an outpouring of God’s blessings and protection as He promised in Deuteronomy 28 He would do: “if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and do all His commandments…” — not just the ones we like and think are ok, but also the ones we mindlessly, if not outright rebelliously, don’t keep just because everyone else on the broad road that leads to destruction isn’t keeping them. Time to wake up; as should be apparent to everyone, time is short and coming off the broad road and entering through the strait gate and onto the narrow Way that leads to life is going to get harder each day that we put off following Him, until our conscience is seared and we lose the Way. No one wants to hear those most dreadful of words from the mouth of Yeshua directed at them – “I never knew you, depart from me ye who are working lawlessness.”

In Times Like These, YHVH Wants us to Rejoice and Smile

A happy, and a most Shalom Shabbat to all. Our Elohim is still in control no matter what Satan might try to make us believe, so rejoice and smile.

KIDS IN CHURCH

 3-year-old, Reese: “Our Father, Who does art in heaven,
 Harold is His name.    Amen.”

              ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 A little boy was overheard praying: “Lord, if you can’t make
 me a better boy, don’t worry about it.  I’m having a real good
 time like I am.”

              ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

A Sunday school class was studying the Ten Commandments.
 They were ready to discuss the last one. The teacher asked
 if anyone could tell her what it was. Susie raised her hand,
 stood tall, and quoted, “Thou shall not take the covers off the
 neighbor’s wife.”

              ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 After the christening of his baby brother in church, Jason
 sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car. His
 father asked him three times what was wrong. Finally, the
 boy replied, “That preacher said he wanted us brought up
 in a Christian home, and I wanted to stay with you guys.”

               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 I had been teaching my three-year old daughter, Caitlin, the
 Lord’s Prayer for several evenings at bedtime, she would
 repeat after me the lines from the prayer. Finally, she decided
 to go solo. I listened with pride as she carefully enunciated
 each word right up to the end of the prayer: “Lead us not into
 temptation,” she prayed, “but deliver us some E-mail.”

               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 One particular four-year-old prayed, “And forgive us our
 trash baskets as we forgive those who put trash in our
 baskets.”

               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  A Sunday school teacher asked her children, as they were
 on the way to church service, “And why is it necessary to
 be quiet in church?” One bright little girl replied, “Because
 people are sleeping.”

               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 Six-year-old Angie and her four-year-old brother Joel were
 sitting together in church. Joel giggled, sang, and talked out
 loud. Finally, his big sister had had enough. “You’re not
 supposed to talk out loud in church.” “Why? Who’s going to
 stop me?” Joel asked.  Angie pointed to the back of the
 church and said, “See those two men standing by the door?
 They’re hushers.”

               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, 5
 and Ryan 3. The boys began to argue over who would get
 the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a
 moral lesson. “If Jesus were sitting here, He would say,
 ‘Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.'” Kevin
 turned to his younger brother and said, “Ryan, you be
 Jesus!”

               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 A father was at the beach with his children when the
 four-year-old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led
 him to the shore where a seagull lay dead in the sand.
 “Daddy, what happened to him?” the son asked. “He died
 and went to Heaven,” the Dad replied. The boy thought a
 moment and then said, “Did God throw him back down?”

               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 A wife invited some people to dinner.  At the table, she
 turned to their six-year-old daughter and said, “Would you
 like to say the blessing? “I wouldn’t know what to say,” the
 girl replied. “Just say what you hear Mommy say,” the wife
 answered. The daughter bowed her head and said,
 “Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?”

               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 A Sunday school teacher asked her class, “What was
 Jesus’ mother’s name?” One child answered, “Mary.”
 The teacher then asked, “Who knows what Jesus’ father’s
 name was?”  A little boy said, “Verge.”
 Confused, the teacher asked, “Where did you get that?”
 The boy said, “Well, you know they are always talking
 about Verge n’ Mary.

By the Sorceries (Pharmakeia) of Babylon all nations were deceived

The Greek word pharmakeia is used in Galatians 5:19… The Greek dictionary defines it as: “witchcraft, magic, the use of spells and potions of magic, often involving drugs–a magic spell. It is a fact that witchcraft and magic in the Greek world often involved the use of drugs–either by the witch or the one on whom the magic is worked.

Revelation chapter 18 gives a description of the fall of Babylon and in verse 23 it gives us the reason why all nations were deceived. This may be shocking for many people. Let’s read what the Bible says. Referring to the fall of Babylon Revelation 18:23 says “And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”

By the “sorceries” of Babylon all nations were deceived. The Greek word for “sorceries” in verse 23 is “pharmakeia” [far-mak-i’-ah]. According to the Thayer Greek Dictionary “pharmakeia” is “the use or administering of drugs; poisoning; and sorcery, magical arts, often found in connection with idolatry and fostered by it.” If you put the original Greek word “pharmakeia” in place of the English word “sorceries” the end of verse 23 would say, “For by thy pharmakeia were ALL nations deceived”! “Pharmakeia” is where we get our English word “pharmacy”! Pharmacy is a well organized and professionalized system that administers poisonous drugs.

The Bible reveals that Babylon will deceive all nations by the use of pharmacy that is in connection to “magical arts” and idolatry. “Magical arts” has its deep roots in witchcraft and the occultic world. We don’t have to do a deep Bible study to know that Satan is directly behind the magical arts and God’s people should have nothing to do with it. Professed deceived Believers today use “magical arts” under the disguise of contemplative prayer, christian humanism, and spiritual formation. In general those involved in sorcery, witchcraft, and magic are known to use “magic” potions to “heal”, deceive, poison, control, or kill someone.

Pharmacy mainly uses a mixture of toxic chemicals, metals, and/or synthetic elements to produce “pharmaceuticals” that are designed to manipulate the biochemistry or metabolic functions of the body in an attempt to get a “desired” affect in the treatment of a disease or sickness.

In other words, pharmacy mixes up different types of poison, package it, patent it, and claims that it can treat certain types of diseases. The main problem with that system is that poison is poison. Pharmaceutical drugs are poisonous. When poison is put into the body it has negative effects on the entire body system from head to toe. These are not just “side effects” or “unintended” sicknesses or diseases that a person suffers as a result of using a drug. These are “direct effects” because the reality is that drugs have direct effects on the entire body system including the brain. When you go back to Revelation 18:23, Yeshua uses the Greek word “pharmakeia” to reveal to us the main thing that will be used to deceive ALL people in the last days is a well organized system of administering poisonous drugs to billions of people that are not only toxic to the organs of body, but have direct negative effects on the brain. Many of these drugs used for a variety of reasons are known to cause problems with memory, mood, and contribute to negative personality changes.

Who is the main one behind the system of pharmacy and the administering of poisonous drugs that Babylon uses to deceive all nations? A logo or symbol reveals the values and the purpose of a business, organization, or professional occupation. They use a logo or symbol as an identifying “mark” to the world. In other words, that logo makes a direct link to a business or occupation. When a person thinks of the “swoosh” they immediately think of the Nike corporation. The symbols and logos of modern medicine clearly reveal who is behind the scenes orchestrating the whole system of the administering of poisonous drugs that manipulate the bodies and minds of billions of people around the world. Let’s just look at three recognizable symbols and unmask the truth!

Figure A: Bowl of Hygieia

The symbol in Figure A is the international symbol for pharmacy known as the “Bowl of Hygieia.” Who is Hygieia? Hygieia comes from Greek mythology. Mythology is the study of myths, or lies and pagan false gods. In other words, though it is not true, millions worship it as if it is true. Who is the father of lies? Satan. According to Greek pagan worship, Hygieia is the goddess of health and hygiene, the daughter of Aesculapius. He is the god of medicine, healing, and physicians.

Ettie Rosenberg, a doctor in pharmacology and attorney describes the meaning of the Bowl of Hygieia. She says, “The ‘Bowl of Hygieia’ symbol is the most widely recognized international symbol of pharmacy. In Greek mythology, Hygieia was the daughter and assistant of Aesculapius, the God of Medicine and Healing. Hygieia’s classical symbol was a bowl containing a medicinal potion with the serpent of Wisdom (or guardianship) partaking it. This is the same serpent of Wisdom, which appears on the caduceus, the staff of Aesculapius, which is the symbol of medicine.” – Ettie Rosenberg, Pharm.D., Esq.

Figure B is a picture of the statue of Hygieia. Notice the serpent drinking the magic potion from the “bowl of wisdom”. In Genesis 3:1-14, Satan, known as the serpent, used a serpent to deceive Eve. Verse 1 reveals that this serpent was “more subtil” meaning that it was thin or very light, not dense or gross, but smooth and refined in order to accomplish its deceptive purpose.

Figure B: “Hygieia”

In verse 6, Eve believed the serpent’s subtil lies. Thinking that she could become wise, Eve disobeyed God by eating from the tree that God said not to eat from. In verse 13 after eating the fruit from the forbidden tree, Eve acknowledged that the serpent deceived her. When a person is deceived, are they aware of it? According to Webster’s dictionary to deceive means “to cause to believe what is false.” So when people are deceived, they really believe the lie. Notice Satan used the serpent to deceive Eve so she would believe the lie. This serpent drinking from the “bowl of wisdom” is from Satan. It represents the deceptive character of Satan that is still deceiving people today. Should God’s people have anything to do with this deception?

Figure C is known as the Rod of Aesculapius as the staff of Aesculapius. His rod represents the healing aspects of the art of medicine. Many Believers think that this symbol is the same as the serpent of brass that Moses put on a pole, but it is not. The serpent on the rod of Aesculapius is a counterfeit to Moses’ bronze serpent on the pole. This counterfeit symbol gives a false message that the serpent is wise and harmless.

Remember, the serpent on the rod of Aesculapius is the same serpent that is drinking from the Bowl of Hygieia. The message that the serpent of this Satanic symbol is also giving is that it is okay to take the poisonous “magic potent” from the bowl. These symbols that are used to represent the professions of pharmacy and medicine are giving a deceptive message from Satan that taking poisonous drugs are wise and has the power to heal and not kill. This is a lie! Those who submit to this poisonous counterfeit system will be swept away.

Figure D: Statue of Aesculapius

Figure D is a statue of Aesculapius with his rod wrapped with the “Snake of Wisdom”. This “Snake of Wisdom” is seen throughout the symbolism of the modern medical profession. It is in the symbol of the American Medical Association, an association that set the standards for physicians and the medical profession in America. It is found in the middle of the logo of the World Health Organization. It is also found on the logos of medical schools, doctor offices, and many other medical organizations.

Figure E

The next symbol in Figure E really sums up who is really behind the poisonous drugging system of Babylon. Figure E is another symbol recognized throughout the medical field, it is known as the “caduceus.” A caduceus has two serpents mating around a rod, topped by a pair of wings. The caduceus,also known as a magic wand, belongs to the Greek god Hermes or the Roman god Mercury. These gods are supposed to be the messengers of gods, inventors of magic, communicators to the “dead” and one who protects business and thieves (www.drblayney.com/Asclepius.html). Many in witchcraft and sorcery still use the caduceus for magic and to cast spells. Also the caduceus in sorcery is known to “restrain and control” its victims.

In Greek mythology and the occultic world the caduceus had nothing to do with medicine, healing or health. So why has modern medicine adopted the caduceus as their symbol of medicine? Remember its original function and meaning. Who holds the caduceus? The false god of Mercury holds it. What is his claim? Inventor of magic, conductor of the dead, protector of merchants, thieves, and to restrain and control is his claim! Could it be that modern medicine has adopted the caduceus as their symbol of medicine and physicians to PROTECT the merchants of the earth that make billions of dollars poisoning people and to protect the corporate thieves and to control and restrain masses of people? This may shock you. Even though the caduceus had nothing to do with healing or medicine, an officer in the U.S. ARMY Medical Corps in 1902 insisted to adopt the caduceus as their symbol. Since then others in the medical profession began to adopt the caduceus as a symbol of medicine or physicians.

Let’s lift the veil of what the caduceus really means. In the occultic world, Satan depicts himself as a goat known as Baphomet with two wings and a caduceus between his crossed legs! Yes, Baphomet has a caduceus between his legs. Look at the pictures in Figure F and compare. Here is the direct link between the poisonous practices of modern medicine through pharmakeia and Satan. Satan is behind this drugging system. A caduceus is actually an abbreviated version of Baphomet, Satan himself.

Do you think Yeshua would ever be a part of this system? NO. Should true Believers be a part of this drugging system? No. This systematic poisoning is of Babylon and God’s people need to get out. We need to learn natures way of healing that God approves of through lifestyle and plant-based eating and herbs.

Did you know that the “father” of pharmacology was an occultist? He was a worshiper of Satan! Born as Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim in 1493, he called himself Paracelsus. He was well known as a Swiss German physician, botanist, alchemist, astrologer, and general occultist. He founded the field of toxicology better known as pharmacy. For hundreds of years physicians used natural herbs and food for healing. Paracelsus defied this notion. From his studies on chemistry and metallurgy with the mix of occultic worship and astrology, he theorized that metals such as mercury, lead, tin, copper, and gold could “purify” the body. He believed that the stars and planets were the main cause of human illness and disease. He believed that ALL diseases should be treated with metals which are poisonous to the body. This was a very radical practice during his time. He treated many diseases with mercury better known as quicksilver. Many physicians who bought into Paracelsus method and used quicksilver (mercury), also known as Quack Salber, were known as “quacks”. This was a very rebellious way of treating the body at the time (Jethro Kloss, Back to Eden, 2nd ed., pp. 52, 53). Many died as a result of Paracelsus way of treatment. At 50 or 51 years old the story is told that Paracelsus was thrown out the window by other physicians at the time who believed him to be very dangerous in 1541. It is amazing today that Paracelsus is known as the father of modern pharmacy! Where did he get his inspiration? Baphomet, Satan!

This system of Paracelsus is the foundation in which modern medicine is built. It has killed and poisoned millions of people. Pharmaceutical drugs never cure disease – they only try to manage it by inhibiting or manipulating a function in the body that is supposed to happen naturally. In a June 2010 report in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, authors said that in looking over records that spanned from 1976 to 2006 they found that out of 62 million death certificates, 25 million deaths were coded as having occurred in a hospital setting due to medication errors. The total number of deaths due to the American modern medical system of drugging, unnecessary surgeries, infections, medical errors, etc., is nearly 800,000 people per year! This is more than people who die from heart disease with over 600,000 deaths per year and cancer with over 500,000 deaths per year. – articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/ archive/2003/11/26/death-by-medicine-part-one.aspx

This system of administering poisonous drugs worldwide is a trillion dollar industry and the medical merchants of the earth profit greatly from it. They love the money it produces and ignore the many lives it destroys. Millions worship the system as an idol.

Poisonous drugs are NOT a cure for disease. Many who prescribe and administer pharmaceutical drugs will admit it. If drugs cured disease, why are many who are being treated for diseases prescribed to take drugs until the day they die. This does not sound like a cure but a money making hoax.

People need to be taught that drugs do not cure disease. It is true that they sometimes afford present relief, and the patient appears to recover as the result of their use; this is because nature has sufficient vital force to expel the poison and to correct the conditions that caused the disease. Health is recovered in spite of the drug. But in most cases the drug only changes the form and location of the disease. Often the effect of the poison seems to be overcome for a time, but the results remain in the system, and work great harm at some later period. By the use of poisonous drugs, many bring upon themselves lifelong illness, and many lives are lost that might be saved by the use of natural methods of healing.” – Ellen White, Counsels on Health, p. 89

What message does the Bible give for those in pharmakeia – the poison of Babylon? Galatians 5:20-21says

20 Idolatry, witchcraft [pharmakeia], hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” The Greek word for “witchcraft” in verse 20 is pharmakeia. Those who are in this poisoning drugging business need to repent and turn away from it. If they do not repent they will not inherit the kingdom of God. This is confirmed in the book of Revelation. Revelation 21:8 says, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers [pharmakeus =druggist/poisoner], and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” The Greek word for sorcerers in verse 8 is “pharmakeus” defined as a druggist or poisoner. This is repeated in the last chapter of the Bible. Revelation 22:14, 15 says, 14“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers [pharmakeus = druggist], and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”

Pharmakeia is a part of Babylon. This is what the Bible predicts that Babylon would use to deceive all nations. You don’t have to be deceived. There is no way to be a part of God’s true people at the end of time and be connected with this system of administering poisonous drugs that manipulate and confuse the mind. This comes from Satan himself. You have seen the evidence. Babylon is fallen, get out before it is too late. It is a broken and poisonous system, “GET OUT” is God’s earnest plea. Revelation 18:4.

God’s Time is Not Man’s Time

God is not yet finished with this election or this nation and the wicked one’s attempt to steal it. His time is His time. Man’s time is of no significance to Him.

“Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the LORD come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.”1 Corinthians 4:5.

Man’s fraudulent actions and ceremonies are of no significance to Him. “A naughty person, a wicked man, walks with a froward {perverse, crooked} mouth. He winks with his eyes, he speaks with his feet, he teaches with his fingers; frowardness {perverseness, crookedness} is in his heart, he devises mischief continually; he sows discord. Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.” Proverbs 6:12-15. Watch to see the calamity of YHVH come suddenly against the froward ones, then all will give Him the glory.

To Preserve When They Attempt to Obliterate

This was a beautiful “farewell speech” to the nation by our President Donald J. Trump. I wanted to share here, not because there is probably anyone who hasn’t heard it, but in an attempt to preserve it when the wicked attempt to obliterate it and all he accomplished for the nation and world, from our memories and from the internet. I thank Yah that He is not finished with this election yet, and I still stand in faith that Donald Trump will resume his office as President of the US, after a brief vacation in Palm Beach, FL, and after Yah has finished taking down the swamp creatures.

My fellow Americans, four years ago we launched a great national effort to rebuild our country, to renew its spirit, and to restore the allegiance of this government to its citizens. In short, we embarked on a mission to make America great again for all Americans.

As I conclude my term as the 45th president of the United States, I stand before you truly proud of what we have achieved together. We did what we came here to do—and so much more.

This week, we inaugurate a new administration and pray for its success in keeping America safe and prosperous. We extend our best wishes, and we also want them to have luck—a very important word.

I’d like to begin by thanking just a few of the amazing people who made our remarkable journey possible.

First, let me express my overwhelming gratitude for the love and support of our spectacular first lady, Melania. Let me also share my deepest appreciation to my daughter Ivanka, my son-in-law Jared, and to Barron, Don, Eric, Tiffany, and Lara. You fill my world with light and with joy.

I also want to thank Vice President Mike Pence, his wonderful wife Karen, and the entire Pence family.

Thank you as well to my Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, the dedicated members of the White House staff, and the Cabinet, and all of the incredible people across our administration who poured out their heart and soul to fight for America.

I also want to take a moment to thank a truly exceptional group of people: the United States Secret Service. My family and I will forever be in your debt. My profound gratitude as well to everyone in the White House Military Office, the teams of Marine One and Air Force One, every member of the Armed Forces, and state and local law enforcement all across our country.

Most of all, I want to thank the American people. To serve as your president has been an honor beyond description. Thank you for this extraordinary privilege. And that’s what it is—a great privilege and a great honor.

We must never forget that while Americans will always have our disagreements, we are a nation of incredible, decent, faithful, and peace-loving citizens who all want our country to thrive and flourish and be very, very successful and good. We are a truly magnificent nation.

All Americans were horrified by the assault on our Capitol. Political violence is an attack on everything we cherish as Americans. It can never be tolerated.

Now more than ever, we must unify around our shared values and rise above the partisan rancor and forge our common destiny.

Four years ago, I came to Washington as the only true outsider ever to win the presidency. I had not spent my career as a politician, but as a builder looking at open skylines and imagining infinite possibilities. I ran for president because I knew there were towering new summits for America just waiting to be scaled. I knew the potential for our nation was boundless as long as we put America first.

So I left behind my former life and stepped into a very difficult arena, but an arena nevertheless, with all sorts of potential if properly done. America had given me so much and I wanted to give something back.

Together with millions of hardworking patriots across this land, we built the greatest political movement in the history of our country. We also built the greatest economy in the history of the world. It was about “America First” because we all wanted to make America great again. We restored the principle that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Our agenda was not about right or left, it wasn’t about Republican or Democrat, but about the good of a nation, and that means the whole nation.

With the support and prayers of the American people, we achieved more than anyone thought possible. Nobody thought we could even come close.

We passed the largest package of tax cuts and reforms in American history. We slashed more job-killing regulations than any administration had ever done before. We fixed our broken trade deals, withdrew from the horrible Trans-Pacific Partnership and the impossible Paris Climate Accord, renegotiated the one-sided South Korea deal, and we replaced NAFTA with the groundbreaking USMCA—that’s Mexico and Canada—a deal that’s worked out very, very well.

Also, and very importantly, we imposed historic and monumental tariffs on China; made a great new deal with China. But before the ink was even dry, we and the whole world got hit with the China virus. Our trade relationship was rapidly changing, billions and billions of dollars were pouring into the U.S., but the virus forced us to go in a different direction.

The whole world suffered, but America outperformed other countries economically because of our incredible economy and the economy that we built. Without the foundations and footings, it wouldn’t have worked out this way. We wouldn’t have some of the best numbers we’ve ever had.

We also unlocked our energy resources and became the world’s number-one producer of oil and natural gas by far. Powered by these policies, we built the greatest economy in the history of the world. We reignited America’s job creation and achieved record-low unemployment for African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, women—almost everyone.

Incomes soared, wages boomed, the American Dream was restored, and millions were lifted from poverty in just a few short years. It was a miracle. The stock market set one record after another, with 148 stock market highs during this short period of time, and boosted the retirements and pensions of hardworking citizens all across our nation. 401(k)s are at a level they’ve never been at before. We’ve never seen numbers like we’ve seen, and that’s before the pandemic and after the pandemic.

We rebuilt the American manufacturing base, opened up thousands of new factories, and brought back the beautiful phrase: “Made in the USA.”

To make life better for working families, we doubled the child tax credit and signed the largest-ever expansion of funding for childcare and development. We joined with the private sector to secure commitments to train more than 16 million American workers for the jobs of tomorrow.

When our nation was hit with the terrible pandemic, we produced not one, but two vaccines with record-breaking speed, and more will quickly follow. They said it couldn’t be done, but we did it. They call it a “medical miracle,” and that’s what they’re calling it right now: a “medical miracle.”

Another administration would have taken 3, 4, 5, maybe even up to 10 years to develop a vaccine. We did in nine months.

We grieve for every life lost, and we pledge in their memory to wipe out this horrible pandemic once and for all.

When the virus took its brutal toll on the world’s economy, we launched the fastest economic recovery our country has ever seen. We passed nearly $4 trillion in economic relief, saved or supported over 50 million jobs, and slashed the unemployment rate in half. These are numbers that our country has never seen before.

We created choice and transparency in healthcare, stood up to big pharma in so many ways, but especially in our effort to get favored-nations clauses added, which will give us the lowest prescription drug prices anywhere in the world.

We passed VA Choice, VA Accountability, Right to Try, and landmark criminal justice reform.

We confirmed three new justices of the United States Supreme Court. We appointed nearly 300 federal judges to interpret our Constitution as written.

For years, the American people pleaded with Washington to finally secure the nation’s borders. I am pleased to say we answered that plea and achieved the most secure border in U.S. history. We have given our brave border agents and heroic ICE officers the tools they need to do their jobs better than they have ever done before, and to enforce our laws and keep America safe.

We proudly leave the next administration with the strongest and most robust border security measures ever put into place. This includes historic agreements with Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, along with more than 450 miles of powerful new wall.

We restored American strength at home and American leadership abroad. The world respects us again. Please don’t lose that respect.

We reclaimed our sovereignty by standing up for America at the United Nations and withdrawing from the one-sided global deals that never served our interests. And NATO countries are now paying hundreds of billions of dollars more than when I arrived just a few years ago. It was very unfair. We were paying the cost for the world. Now the world is helping us.

And perhaps most importantly of all, with nearly $3 trillion, we fully rebuilt the American military—all made in the USA. We launched the first new branch of the United States Armed Forces in 75 years: the Space Force. And last spring, I stood at Kennedy Space Center in Florida and watched as American astronauts returned to space on American rockets for the first time in many, many years.

We revitalized our alliances and rallied the nations of the world to stand up to China like never before.

We obliterated the ISIS caliphate and ended the wretched life of its founder and leader, al Baghdadi. We stood up to the oppressive Iranian regime and killed the world’s top terrorist, Iranian butcher Qasem Soleimani.

We recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

As a result of our bold diplomacy and principled realism, we achieved a series of historic peace deals in the Middle East. Nobody believed it could happen. The Abraham Accords opened the doors to a future of peace and harmony, not violence and bloodshed. It is the dawn of a new Middle East, and we are bringing our soldiers home.

I am especially proud to be the first president in decades who has started no new wars.

Above all, we have reasserted the sacred idea that, in America, the government answers to the people. Our guiding light, our North Star, our unwavering conviction has been that we are here to serve the noble everyday citizens of America. Our allegiance is not to the special interests, corporations, or global entities; it’s to our children, our citizens, and to our nation itself.

As president, my top priority, my constant concern, has always been the best interests of American workers and American families. I did not seek the easiest course; by far, it was actually the most difficult. I did not seek the path that would get the least criticism. I took on the tough battles, the hardest fights, the most difficult choices because that’s what you elected me to do. Your needs were my first and last unyielding focus.

This, I hope, will be our greatest legacy: Together, we put the American people back in charge of our country. We restored self-government. We restored the idea that in America no one is forgotten, because everyone matters and everyone has a voice. We fought for the principle that every citizen is entitled to equal dignity, equal treatment, and equal rights because we are all made equal by God. Everyone is entitled to be treated with respect, to have their voice heard, and to have their government listen. You are loyal to your country, and my administration was always loyal to you.

We worked to build a country in which every citizen could find a great job and support their wonderful families. We fought for the communities where every American could be safe and schools where every child could learn. We promoted a culture where our laws would be upheld, our heroes honored, our history preserved, and law-abiding citizens are never taken for granted. Americans should take tremendous satisfaction in all that we have achieved together. It’s incredible.

Now, as I leave the White House, I have been reflecting on the dangers that threaten the priceless inheritance we all share. As the world’s most powerful nation, America faces constant threats and challenges from abroad. But the greatest danger we face is a loss of confidence in ourselves, a loss of confidence in our national greatness. A nation is only as strong as its spirit. We are only as dynamic as our pride. We are only as vibrant as the faith that beats in the hearts of our people.

No nation can long thrive that loses faith in its own values, history, and heroes, for these are the very sources of our unity and our vitality.

What has always allowed America to prevail and triumph over the great challenges of the past has been an unyielding and unashamed conviction in the nobility of our country and its unique purpose in history. We must never lose this conviction. We must never forsake our belief in America.

The key to national greatness lies in sustaining and instilling our shared national identity. That means focusing on what we have in common: the heritage that we all share.

At the center of this heritage is also a robust belief in free expression, free speech, and open debate. Only if we forget who we are, and how we got here, could we ever allow political censorship and blacklisting to take place in America. It’s not even thinkable. Shutting down free and open debate violates our core values and most enduring traditions.

In America, we don’t insist on absolute conformity or enforce rigid orthodoxies and punitive speech codes. We just don’t do that. America is not a timid nation of tame souls who need to be sheltered and protected from those with whom we disagree. That’s not who we are. It will never be who we are.

For nearly 250 years, in the face of every challenge, Americans have always summoned our unmatched courage, confidence, and fierce independence. These are the miraculous traits that once led millions of everyday citizens to set out across a wild continent and carve out a new life in the great West. It was the same profound love of our God-given freedom that willed our soldiers into battle and our astronauts into space.

As I think back on the past four years, one image rises in my mind above all others. Whenever I traveled all along the motorcade route, there were thousands and thousands of people. They came out with their families so that they could stand as we passed, and proudly wave our great American flag. It never failed to deeply move me. I knew that they did not just come out to show their support of me; they came out to show me their support and love for our country.

This is a republic of proud citizens who are united by our common conviction that America is the greatest nation in all of history. We are, and must always be, a land of hope, of light, and of glory to all the world. This is the precious inheritance that we must safeguard at every single turn.

For the past four years, I have worked to do just that. From a great hall of Muslim leaders in Riyadh to a great square of Polish people in Warsaw; from the floor of the Korean Assembly to the podium at the United Nations General Assembly; and from the Forbidden City in Beijing to the shadow of Mount Rushmore, I fought for you, I fought for your family, I fought for our country. Above all, I fought for America and all it stands for—and that is safe, strong, proud, and free.

Now, as I prepare to hand power over to a new administration at noon on Wednesday, I want you to know that the movement we started is only just beginning. There’s never been anything like it. The belief that a nation must serve its citizens will not dwindle but instead only grow stronger by the day.

As long as the American people hold in their hearts deep and devoted love of country, then there is nothing that this nation cannot achieve. Our communities will flourish. Our people will be prosperous. Our traditions will be cherished. Our faith will be strong. And our future will be brighter than ever before.

I go from this majestic place with a loyal and joyful heart, an optimistic spirit, and a supreme confidence that for our country and for our children, the best is yet to come.

Thank you and farewell. God bless you. God bless the United States of America.
