Yeah. We started a series of talks last week called let no one deceive you let no one deceive you. And so if you haven’t got a chance to check that out, go on our YouTube channel or go on Facebook or on our erodes family or on our website. And you can check that part one out. That’ll be important for you, but we want to get into today because I believe it’s easier to be deceived right now than it’s ever been in history. Can anybody agree with me? I believe it really is when it comes to our amazing Mt. Carmel Church. I think there’s so much deception going on understanding and knowing what is right and what is wrong has never been more difficult for people it’s never been more difficult for young people coming up to know what is right, what is wrong? What should I believe? What shouldn’t, I believe who’s telling the truth.
I believe it’s a difficult time in our life. And so we’re going to continue to talk about some current events today. Hope you’re ready for that. There’s some things that I’ve been waiting to talk about. Again, I’ve been preparing, uh, since, uh, the coronavirus came out and I started preparing, started doing some research. And so we’re going to talk about, I usually I put all that on the shelf for all these months and I’m like, no, I’m not talking about it. Not talking about it and felt like it wasn’t time. And then Monday, um, as I got up and got ready, thinking about, okay, Sunday’s over, where are we going next? I felt like God said, now when you start talking about some of these things and I’m like, like what started show me specifically some things I felt like he wanted me to answer some questions about why we’re doing what we’re doing.
And I said, okay. And so I just started thinking about that. Got nervous immediately about what that’s going to mean. And then, uh, what happened this week? Some announcements came out and all of a sudden, okay, maybe I know why I’m going to talk about it. Cause we got to answer some questions. So I believe with the only way we’re going to prevent from being deceived is by knowing the truth. Only when we know the truth, will we prevent ourselves from being deceived? And so, uh, when I ask you, what is your source of truth? What information are you basing your decisions on? What is the source of your truth? What information are you basing your life decisions on parenting decisions, relationship decisions, financial decisions, health decisions that you got to have a basis for what you make your decisions on. And so here at the roads, we believe that the Bible, the word of God is the truth. So, uh, we believe that we’re going to base our information, our decisions on this. So whenever we open up our Bible, we get excited because we know we’re not going to be deceived. We’re not going to get lied on because we’re going to read the truth. So we’re going to get pumped up about it. If you got your Bibles today, let’s get excited. As we open them up to second Thessalonians, chapter two,
Thessalonians Chapter two. I just want to thank our social media people for posting that great picture of me. Yeah, sure. What that was on Instagram. I was trying to count how many chins were in that picture. And I lost track somewhere in seven or eight. So I just of the say thank you for that. It’s always great. They love me. Second Thessalonians chapter two. Now I thought it was really cool. I just, I like laughing at myself, which is really easy when you have all this to laugh at second Thessalonians chapter two, let’s just go on verse one. Are you ready? Mount caramel, man. I love you guys so thankful for you. Erodes family. Are you ready right there in your homes, watching online with us here at Mt. Carmel Church. Let’s look at the word of God. Verse one says now brethren concerning the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ in our gathering together to him. We ask you not to be soon shaken in mind or trouble. Don’t be that don’t be shaken in mind or trouble either by spirit or by word or by letter as if from us as though the day of Christ had come because it hasn’t let no one deceive you by any means.
Let no one deceive you by any means. It sounds like a strong statement says for that time, that day, sorry, what day we’re talking about the day of Christ. The day of the Lord, the return of Christ will not come and will not come unless the falling away comes first. And the man of sin is revealed. The son of perdition who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped so that he sits as God in the temple of God showing himself that he is God, can we just pray? I just want invite. Holy spirit, come, Holy spirit, bring life. You are the one that guides us into all truth. And so I pray right now, Lord, that your presence will fill every screen, fill every location, fill every car, every podcast, Lord, thank you that people will not hear me, but they will hear you.
That’s fight you to be here. Lord, none of us came here from me. We all came here for you. So I give you the F the Liberty and to give you the praise and what you’re going to do today. It’s all in your honor and your name. Jesus. We pray. Somebody say, amen, amen. So now it says contextually here again, Paul’s talking about that day, not being deceived about the return of Christ. And we’re going to talk about that in this series about the return of Christ and that day and all of that. But before we get into that too far, I think it’s important for us to understand the concept of deception in general, because it’s not just about being deceived about when Christ is going to come back, but it’s being deceived in general. So we want to address that. And that’s some things I want to get into note too with our great Mt. Carmel Church.
Today. We need to know about what it means when it says, let no one deceive you by any means. Here’s what that word. Let no one deceive you means it means to lead out of the right way to lead out of the right way to cause someone to have a misleading or erroneous view concerning the truth. Webster says it means to dis to mislead, to cause, to believe or accept as true. What is false or to disbelieve what is true? So here’s something that’s important. It does not say let no one, you, it does not say let no one be deceptive towards you. It says, let no one deceive you and deceiving is tied to what we do.
This is important. We’re going to hear deceptive things. That’s not the issue. We’re not done yet. We’re not hooked yet because we heard a deceptive talk or someone saying something we’re only in trouble. When we choose to believe something, let no one deceive. You means don’t let anyone cause you to believe what is false to be true or to believe what is true to be false. So there’s power in your believer too. Two voices are buying for our occupancy or of our loyalty kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness. Both of them want the same thing. They want your believer.
They want your, because they know if they will get your believer, they will get your behavior. Once you choose to believe something, it affects how you act. It affects how you think it affects how you talk. So the goal of the enemy, the goal of God, is to get to what we believe. And once they impact and influence what we believe automatically, how we behave, how we think and how we talk will come in line with what we believe. If we believe a certain thing is going to happen, we will act in accordance with that with us here at Mt. Carmel Church. And so this is why deception is about getting you to believe the wrong thing, because if he gets us to believe the wrong thing, we’ll think the wrong thing, we’ll talk. The wrong thing. We’ll act the wrong thing. We’ll respond the wrong way.
So after our response, the enemy’s after your response. So how’s he going to get your response through what you believe? So this is why we’ve got to be careful and what we don’t be deceived by anything in Matthew 24. Cause remember this, we don’t, we’re not deceived by what we hear. We’re deceived by what we choose to believe. I’m not choosing, I’m not to deceived by her because I heard a lie. I’m deceived.
I believe the lot. Yes. Big difference because we get caught up and I’m hearing all these voices. I’m hearing all that. We’re going to hear more, not like schizophrenia type thing. I’m just saying, you’re going to hear influence of the kingdom of God. You’re going to hear influence from the kingdom of darkness, but don’t be discouraged because you have bad influences talking to you. Choose which one you believe and keep moving forward. All right. So now, so, uh, Matthew 24 says this and Jesus answered and said to them, take heed that no one deceives you that no one deceives you for many will come in my name saying, I am Christ and will deceive. Many, many. Now how does deception happen? We talked about this a little bit. I just want to remind us this deception happens. It says here let no one deceive you by any means for that day will not come unless the falling away comes first. How does deception happen in my life with the best Mt. Carmel Church around? How does it happen in your life? How does it happen in general? It happens the falling away first, what is falling away? It’s the word that we would use apostasy it’s disregarding or rejecting or abandoning the truth. When we abandoned or reject the truth. We opened the door for deception.
When we rejected, when we move away from it, how do we abandon the truth? If the truth is God’s word. When I abandoned a lifestyle, that’s based on the teachings of the word. I opened myself up to deception by rejecting what God says, rejecting his principles. Now I’m opening myself up to be deceived. So this is a problem we’ve got to face in our life is that we’re not willing to read our Bible, but we’re trying to live a good life. It cannot happen. You cannot be, uh, let me say it this way. We can’t not be deceived when we don’t read God’s word without a relationship and ongoing regular relationship with the word, we will be deceit. Why do I keep talking about that? Because I see it over and over. People are trying to be Christians without reading the Bible. You can’t do it successfully. We just want to be white. How do I know that? Because I’ve done it. I try to just be a good guy. I’m a good person. I’m a good person. Don’t hurt anybody. I go to church. It doesn’t matter. I don’t even try to say it. Doesn’t matter. If you go to church, I’m saying you’re still be deceived. Unless you have a guideline of what tells you what is right or wrong.
Don’t harp on that too much. Let me move on. So now when we defect her abandon the truth, what happens? It says here we’ll get shaken in mind. We’ll get trouble. We get in a state of fear. That’s shaken in mind means to be unsettled, waver, back and forth. So if God is saying, don’t be unsettled. I believe he’s telling us to be settled in our decision-making. I think this is important. We need to make a, you remember I asked Paul to go with said, what’s making our, what are we making our decisions? Based on what information we have to make a decision and establish our position based on the truth of God’s word. And once you make a decision, don’t move off of it. Paul said this, that God showed him something. He showed him some revelations. And he said, afterwards, I did not confer with flesh and blood.
In other words, after God speaks to you, don’t ask for other people’s opinions were we need to make a decision on where we’re going to stand on things and make that decision based on the word of God. And then don’t budge. He says, establish yourself. Don’t be unsettled in mind. Make up your mind. What is your position? What is your position? Because here’s, what’s going to happen. Things are going to come. That’s going to try and tempt. You mislead you to get away from the truth. Why decided I’m going to believe God. Well, guess what? Get ready for voices. It’s going to try and take you away from it. Just because I made a good decision to serve God today. Doesn’t mean it’s going to come without any opposition. So now let’s look at this. We have to make a decision with establish our position.
So here’s some questions I felt like I need to answer today. Are you ready? This is current events. Current events, sole answer the question. Why are we still having church? Why are we having church? Why are we open? Why did we open May 31st? We made the decision when the coronavirus first started back in, uh, March, we shut down because we didn’t know what was going on. You know, a prison comes on and said, everybody needs to shut down. So we didn’t know what was happening. We didn’t know the extent of it. We didn’t know what was going to be the severity of it. So we did and like it, but it did. So we shut down from March till May 31st was Pentecost Sunday. And I was like, we got to go. I felt like Holy spirit spoke to me and said, we got to go with us here at Mt. Carmel Church.
I started in March studying and researching. I thought, if I’m going to have to make a decision on what’s the comfort level or safety level for people to be in a public gathering that I’m responsible for. Then I wanted to have some information in my head besides we’re just going to blindly. Believe God, I want to be educated. So I’ve set out to educate myself. So now how did we make the decision based on going, coming back to church and how do we make the decision on being here today? Did we make that on faith or did we make that based on science? We made it based on both contrary to popular belief. It is not faith or science. You can do both. It’s not either or it’s both. And so we got to put the two together. And so when I began to do that, there’s a difference in the word of God being a source of my life and truth, or just a spiritual accessory. So this is how I make decisions in my life. How I make decisions about the churches, how I make decisions every day. Number one, every decision runs through the filter of what does the Bible say? That’s it. If I want to stay mad at my wife longer than two or three days, or if I want to say whatever, if I want to do this, I have to run it through the filter of the word.
Okay? I didn’t say I always like it. I just said, I run it through the filter of the word. Lot of times I come kicking and screaming to obey what God says. I’m not always just, Oh, I love the word. No, sometimes I’m like, Oh, so making the decision, whether we come back to church and I’ll make it number one, it’s a based on the word first. What does God say? This is what I’m encouraging. You, you have to make every decision of your life. Number one, what does the word say? And Luke chapter 10 verse 19 said this and was making the decision. And he says, behold, Chad, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Boom, Mike drop Holy spirit. So we either believe that word.
Or it’s this Christian cliche, behold, I give a 40 over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt. You. That’s either a revelation in my heart or it’s just some cute Bible verse that people say, there’s a big difference. A big difference. Well, I know what the Bible says, but I know what the Bible says, but anybody ever heard anybody say that? Well, I know what the Bible says, but what that means is that what the Bible says is not alive in their heart yet it’s not condemnation. We all have to walk that out. But when it’s alive in your heart, you’re like, that’s what it says. I believe in all my decisions going to be based on that truth. But then someone said, wait a minute, temperature. You got to use wisdom. I hear this all the time. You got to use with them. Yes you do. But you cannot separate God from wisdom. You can’t do it. It’s not God and wisdom. There is no wisdom outside of God, with us ehre at Mt. Carmel Church.
Right? I realize it’s Bible verse. And you may not believe the Bible, but let me give you this first Corinthians three 18 says, let no one deceive himself or herself. So everything I’m getting ready to say, don’t let anybody deceive you. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise for. The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. Where does wisdom come from? It comes from God. So when people say, well, I understand that, but you gotta use wisdom. Use wisdom, according to the word of God in partnership with God. If I seek after God, I will get wisdom. If I seek after wisdom, apart from God, I will not get it. Okay? So it’s not either. Or don’t let people tell you that. Well, understand what the Bible says, but you got to use wisdom
Gets me a little nervous when people say that, like, so God’s not wise. Okay. So now as we study this, we didn’t know what the impact was. Now. We’re what, 10 months into seven, eight months into it. We have some data. So I’m going to give you some information. And again, this is not preface this. I’m answering the question. Why are we still having church? Why do I believe what I believe based on science, I can give you scriptures, but some people that’s not going to anything. I’m going to give you the science practical part today on why we’re doing what we’re doing. And it’s not against anybody. It is not a political statement. If things that I say today or political to you, then you need to check that you could already be deceived in your Alliance because when you believe something in your life, it does.
I believe these things based on what I believe in myself. And then if someone agrees with that, that’s totally between them and God, but I’m not believing the way I believe because I’m only supporting some candidate. I believe what I believe based on the information that I have and what God has spoken into my heart. Now, if it’s against somebody, so be it. If it’s for somebody. So be it. I’m not changing. What I believe to support some person it’s not political when it comes to our Mt. Carmel Church needs. This is me or what God is speaking to me against the Corona virus or against it’s the devil. It’s not political. So now, if this sounds like stuff that lines up with a candidate, that’s not my business. My business is to decide where I stand, where I believe and let the candidates figure out where they want to stand. All right. Hey man.
Sorry. Thank you. So now this is off the CDC website. Now some many people didn’t even know what the CDC was 10 minutes ago, but now it’s everywhere. This is a in the United States of America. You can get it right off of there right now. As of yesterday updated this yesterday, I’ve been tracking it every week since March 8.5 million cases of coronavirus tested, PA people tested positive in the country. 8.5 million of those 223,393 deaths. Now taking the consideration there some major speculation, whether all 223,000 of those people died of COVID or with COVID. And I’m not, I’m just doing this for clarification. There have been several reports. Some of them by the CDC themselves, dr. Burke even said this early on that if someone dies of something, but with COVID, they’re counting it as a COVID debt. Now you can argue about the percentage of people that are actually dying of gum.
I’m not going to argue about that. I think we got enough data to use even the numbers that they give us. But I’m saying, I know it’s less than this, but we’re still gonna use the 223,000 just for argument’s sake. Okay? Just clarifying that of those 223,000 that died. So that’s 2.6, 4% of the total cases are ending in depth. 2.6, 4%. So the people who test positive 97.36 are recovering. Now immediately, if you take that number down to what the percentage of people that actually died of COVID that number immediately mortality goes down and the recovery rate goes up, but let’s just at least use those 97.3, 6%. Again, why are we staying open? I’m just giving you some numbers. Let’s take it compared to the population as a whole. Because when someone tells me Chad, you’re going to have to shut down the church.
I’m like, Ooh, shut down the church. You better give me some reasons why to shut down the church. When you will tell me that we can’t sing in church. Ooh, you better give me some hard data. You better tell me something because I’m not, I’ve never been, God bless my parents. I’ve never been somebody who just did things just because someone said, so I’ve always been a little bit of Bucky. I’ve always been a little bit of, I’ve always had a strong will about me. I’ve always been like, you better prove that to me. Oh, you have. Why? Why, why, why? How come? How come? Why and how come. Great questions that Chad little chatty used to ask a lot. Why and how come so now, so tell me I can’t come to church. Tell me I can’t sing. You better. Tell me why. So according to the population, 8.5 million cases, again, 223,000 with a population of 331 million people in the United States.
That means a mortality rate. People dying 0.06, 7% of the population is dying of coronavirus. If you assume all 223,000 caused by that point, zero six, seven, that’s one out of every 1500 people. That means 99.9, 3% of the population is doing fine. Just numbers. I’m not telling you who to vote for. I didn’t say anything about that. I didn’t say anything but 99.93% are doing fine. Okay. So now let’s look at, uh, of those 223,000 deaths though. Let’s look at according to against CDC website, the number of 65 and up 65 and up is 16% of our population. Eight out of every 10 deaths are people 6,500 older. So that means 178,000 of the 223,000 are people 65 and older. And of that number 47% of those were nursing home.
So 84,000 of the 178,000 were nursing home Rez residents. So now let’s look at the number of 64 and under 64 and under which is the rest of the population, 84% of the population. That means only 44,679 deaths in the entire U S 64 that’s 0.016% of the population under 64 is dying of coronavirus 0.016%. Let me do the quick math for you. So you can see that means 99.98% of the population. It’s doing fine. It’s one out of every 6,235. So if 99.9, 8% of the population, 64 and under are doing well. And if you take that number even further, I can go deep on this. I’ve been 18 years and under that number even drops dramatically. So my question is how many nines do you need before you start to feel at peace? That it’s okay for me to go out 99.9, 8%.
That’s pretty strong number, but I got to shut down the church when 99.4 0.016%. I’m just saying these are numbers that I have to make decisions based on. You can make them based on whatever you want. I’m just not going to base them on someone, giving me a meme on Instagram and telling me to shut down the church. Someone posting something on social media telling me scare tactics for this. I’ll say, show me the data. Show me some why and how come. So anyway, going back to the little Teddy days. So now someone say this though, Chad, but one matters. Even one matters. Oh, I get it. I get it. One matters. But what I’m seeing and what I’ve synced in this is that from the beginning, the handling of this differed from state to state. And so initially it was, I’m trying to make the decision based on the word of God. Number one, and then based on the science, number two, I began to realize that seemed to be, there was some political involvement on how decisions were made, that I could go 30 miles across the river. And all of a sudden, now my kids could play sports, but they can’t play sports on 30 miles on this side. So I’m telling you, but once I realized that politics was involved, then I remove politics from my decision-making.
So now I’m not against the governor of my state. I’m not against the health department. We got people that work in the health department. I’m loved them. I’m thankful for them. We’re not against anybody. I’m just saying when I make my decisions for what I’m going to make them on, I’m going to make them on based on what God says, what the science says. And I’m not going to be swayed by someone who might have a different agenda. So again, I’m not against people, we’re not against our health by, we love our health, the bar we’re thankful for. But if you ask me, why are we still having church 99.9, 8%? That’s why we’re still having church. But he said, well, one matters chat, okay? Okay. I got you 2018. Here’s some statistics driving 10,511 people died. Do we care about it? Those that died of drunk driving.
We care about the one we do at Mt. Carmel Church. Traffic crush is 36,000 people died in car accidents, flu and pneumonia killed 61,000 people or 167 people a day in 2018 that we care about. We didn’t care about them in 2018, we did, right? We’re not selecting who we care about. We care about everybody all the time. I’m just checking. These are hypotheticals, right? Rhetorical questions. Smoking killed 480,000 people every year for him. That’s over twice of COVID-19. Is there any campaign to stop the production of tobacco? I’m not condemning anybody that smokes. I’m just using a number to give a statement, to get perspective that if we care about people, everyone, that means 1,315 people are dying every day from smoking perspective perspective, you guys, okay? Don’t get mad.
Five, 600,000 people dying of cancer in a year, 1600 a day, heart disease, 655,000 people. If we say Chad, one is too many, one is too many. One is too many in every category. I don’t want anyone. Well, what if it was your person died? Well, what if you don’t know if it’s my person that died of liver cancer or, or cause something else, people are dying. It’s happening that sorrowful it’s morning. It’s it’s terrible. We don’t want anyone to die. But if we’re looking at perspectives of why we’re shutting down churches, shutting down schools, setting down businesses. I want to know the data. I just want to know why I want, know why CDC website, according to 2020 suicides, 48,344 people have died. Suicide took their life. That’s one, every 11 minutes, 132 people a day. Do we care about them? I had a friend of mine that I’ve lost. I can’t even talk about the most. We sat down in the church. I’m still convinced. If we’ve been open, been able to have fellowship. It still be here. I care about every life I care about every life suicide. I’m not closing down just because someone has an agenda, I’m going to get some data. I care about the safety of people. People say this well, we need to listen to the scientists and we need to listen to the experts. My question would be which ones?
Which ones? Why are some doctors, voices not allowed to be heard? Why are they being censored? Why, why? Why is it that we want to listen to the scientists? As long as the scientists say what we want them to say, but if the scientists don’t say what we want them to say, then we shut them down. Listen, church. I’m not preparing you for an argument over coronavirus. I’m preparing you for the antichrist. I’m preparing you for a mindset that will not be deceived with us here at Mt. Carmel Church. When the enemy comes in to steal, kill, and destroy from you, your family, from your kids, we’ve got to be aware of how do we make decisions? We gotta be aware of what’s going to happen. This is what’s taking place. Google, YouTube, Instagram, uh, Twitter, Facebook, and a Tik TOK and Snapchat. All of them. They have an antichrist agenda. They’re censoring. If you’re not concerned about the censoring of information that why one voice is pulled out and others are not, I’m not even sure this message is going to survive the internet. And if it doesn’t, that should be a booming neon sign to you.
A problem arises when one voice is not allowed to speak. I want see dissenting voices aren’t allowed right now. If you’re saying anything other than fear. And if you’re in saying anything positive, we’re going to shut you down. Why is that? What does it matter? As you make P speaking positive? I don’t want dissenting voices to be, God never created a culture where the dissenting voices were silenced. He says, let them have their words. God didn’t silence. Freedom of choice. He said, let other buddies, I don’t want to silence the voice of the atheist. I’m not looking to take down the websites of the ASIS. Let them up, let them up, let the atheists be up. Let the Satanist groups, let them have their websites. I don’t care. Don’t set them down. I don’t, I’m not looking for the LGBTQ community to be silenced numbers. Let them know everyone should have the freedom to choose what they want to believe. I’m just saying, let God’s word free. Talk to a friend of mine. I’ve got to know him over this. Oh, and my times how’s it happened so quickly. Dr. Richard Bartlett. I don’t know if you’ve heard of him or not. He’s a TA. He was the top medical advisor to the governor of Texas for seven years. And I’ve gotten to know him. I got introduced to him through a friend and we’ve been talking and texting and getting information. And dr. Bartlett has treated, not had case studies.
And he’s about personally treated as an MD for over 28 years, over a thousand, almost 1200 patients. And not last one. What happened when he, when they first started telling him about the coronavirus in the medical field, they were saying, there’s no early treatment. All we’re doing is late stage treatment. Just wait until they get bad and they need a ventilator. Go home, take some Tylenol, whatever. And he said, I, I felt bad. He’s a Christian spirit-filled believer. And he said, I, I felt like I had to offer something to people that comes to me sick. And so in the middle of a 48 hour shift, he said, he went and be laid down to take a nap and prayed. And Wally prayed and took that nap. When he woke up, he said an idea came to me. A treatment came to me because he said, I realized God was showing me what this was.
And let me give you some, this is outside of my pay grade. But just so you understand, this is based on science COVID-19 is an inflammatory disease of the lungs, respiratory virus that binds to the ACE receptors in the lungs and triggers the release of an inflammatory chemical called cytokines. I had asthma growing up. I was in the hospital. Many times I have asthma attacks all the time. I couldn’t breathe. God, God healed me. I remember what it was like to not be able to breathe. I remember when I’d have an asthma attack. And I mean, I remember the panic that would come into my life when I couldn’t breathe. He said, God began to reveal to me that the connection between this and Corona virus. So he started to use something it’s called [inaudible]. You can go to his website, [inaudible] dot com. He’s not benefiting from it.
He’s not getting financially, uh, reimbursed for it. He just come up with this treatment. And he shared this treatment with the ICU in San Antonio and within 48 hours there a full ICU was completely cleared out. So here’s the question I have. Whether you agree with that or not. I’m just saying dr. Berlin gets on YouTube and puts out this video saying, Hey, I’ve treated almost 1200 people and not lost one. And we don’t need a vaccine. We’ve already got a treatment right now. And this is what I’m doing. Not what I think hypothetically might possibly happen. This is what I’m doing. And here are the results he gets on there and shares this video and what happens with us here at Mt. Carmel Church. They pull it and scrub it from Facebook and YouTube and Google. You can’t find them. Why what’s the big deal. He’s trying to help people. Right? Just trying to tell, Hey, I’m seeing some people healed and recovered here. Isn’t that good news. Why are we taking good news off? Because it doesn’t instill fear. The enemy wants you to hear hopelessness. He wants you to hear fear. I’m not telling you who to vote for. Doesn’t have anything to do with that. It’s us against the Corona virus. It’s searing. What is God saying? God’s saying, Hey, listen, I’ve got treatment available, available to you. But if we’re not allowed to choose,
Why can’t I hear about a doctor? That’s seeing people get results. Why can’t I hear about that? Why can’t I make that decision for myself? Whether I want to try Videssa night or not? How many here have ever benefited from a second opinion? Huh? Isn’t it wonderful that we can actually have a second opinion? How many of you ever had a situation or, you know, somebody who’s had situation went to the doctor and the doctor said, Oh, well, we’re going to have to have surgery. We’re going to do this and that. And you felt like, Ooh, well, I’m not sure about that. You go to another doctor and that doctor looks at you. And I said, don’t you ever let anybody do surgery on you? That’s not what you need. You knew this was this. Are we thankful for a second opinion? But now second opinions, any dissenting voices are trying to be scrubbed. If you’re not for the vaccine, if you’re not for this, then we’re getting rid of your voice. I’m telling you, that’s not. God’s look out, be aware. Let no one deceive you. When the voices are starting to be controlled, it’s coronavirus today with us here at Mt. Carmel Church.
But what’s it going to be tomorrow? If we lay back and say, well, it’s okay. Just take all those opinions. No, it’s going to be my voice. Next. It’s going to be those. That’s talking about Jesus. It’s going to be those whose talking about Christ. It’s those it’s going to be exposing the anti-Christ and saying, don’t follow that guy. That voice is going to be scrubbed. Mark my words. When I start talking about where he’s going to come from and what he’s going to be and how he’s going to operate, be ready. I’m not preparing you for a debate on the Corona virus. I don’t care about that. We’re preparing for battle. Let me read this first and I could quit. May I have you come back next week? First Timothy chapter four verse one says now the spirit expressly says that in latter times, some will depart from the faith giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons. Apologize in your sermon notes. There there’s a typo, but what this means when we give heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of
Demons, we turn our attention towards it. And this is what God’s sakes. In latter times, people are going to depart from the faith because we’re going to give heed to doctrines or teachings or information. So here’s, what’s happening. Google, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook. They’re trying to inundate you with information to get you to believe a certain way.We have to run everything they say through the filter of God’s word. They say, this is what’s going to happen to you. This is what’s going to happen to you. This is what’s to happen to you. I got to say, wait a minute, is that what God says? He’s going to have to meet? I don’t think so. I’m going to play that, whatever you got to say, just how you talk to God. Maybe just say it. You feel me, right? I mean, the enemy is after your believer, because if he gets your believer, he’ll get your behavior. He’ll get your peace. He’ll Rob. You. He’ll get us in a state of fear. We will know what to do. So when not choose to believe what God says and just say to the devil, peace can come into our life. So man, this is going to be this kind of a blending, some other stuff I want to get into, but I’m have to do an extra minute.
I’m answering the question today. Why did we choose to do what we chose to do? And why are we still choosing what we’re choosing to do? This is it. This is one. Not because I’m mad at anybody now because I’m trying to prove a point based on faith and based on science, I am not afraid of this thing. There’s treatments right now. Dr. Bartlett told me, he said, Chad, if you’ll start to rinsing with mouthwash, that’ll help. If you, if someone gets it, tell him to go to my website for under $200 with no insurance. I mean, all kinds of things are happening right now. It’s not political. Please don’t make it political. If it’s political, then there’s other issues that we’ve got to deal with. But the thing we’re trying to look at, do we think it’s safe to come to church? Yeah, I think it’s safe to come to church 99.9, 6%. That’s pretty strong to me. That’s pretty strong to me. I’m not saying it doesn’t exist. People are getting it. Some are getting sick. Absolutely. So take care of yourself. Take care of yourself. It happens all the time. I’ve seen people every year. Some people get the flu. Some people get it. They’re just whatever down a day or so other people get it, they’ve come up to me. I thought I was going to die. Seven days. It’s going to happen. But I’m just saying we’re not hopeless when it comes to the best Mt. Carmel Church.
