Strictly Enforced”

W.A.P - Watch and Pray

“Strictly Enforced”


Meditate:

Revelation 13:15-17


So, the first “enforced” lockdown effectively kept us indoors for the better part of six months.


Then the “enforced” lockdown was relaxed and the R rate has gone up.


Who is to blame? Seem like the young and those who don’t subscribe to the established narrative are top of the list.



What is the result?

“ *Strictly-enforced new rules* to combat Covid may hit Christmas - with the return of fans to Premier League football games even under threat, it emerged today.”


Very, very interesting wording don’t you think?


Things got better for a while but it would seem that the enforced measures were not strong enough, the disease/pestilence is still here...therefore the rule needs to be strengthened, the rules need to have teeth, the rules need to be “strictly enforced.”



Sounds strangely familiar I think...


Read:

It will be declared that men are offending God by the violation of the Sunday sabbath; that this sin has brought *calamities which will not cease until Sunday observance shall be strictly enforced;* and that those who present the claims of the fourth commandment, thus destroying reverence for Sunday, are troublers of the people, preventing their restoration to divine favor and temporal prosperity.

GC 590.1


The Law enforced will not abate the calamities. A small group who cannot, with all good conscience subscribe to the procedures and policies of the the “new normal” will be blamed for the resurgence and resilience of the pestilences, economic downturns and increasing crime plaguing societies, and so, ‘that law’ will be “strictly enforced.”


Harbinger...

The rule of six

Meditate:

Daniel 1:8 - “But Daniel purposed in his heart...”


Those who would not receive the mark of the beast and his image when the decree goes forth, must have decision now to say, Nay, we will not regard the institution of the beast.

EW 67.2


Appeal:

Let us be like Daniel and make firm decisions and resolves that we will be true to God...regardless.


Maranatha!
