What Is the COVID Narrative?

Invitation to Ponder: mentally check off the narrative elements one believes or accepts, while at the same time asking: What if this is false?
□  Covid-19 is a novel virus that originated in nature.
□  (In the less-accepted alternative: it was an accidental leak from a “gain-of-function” bio-lab.
□   It originated in Wuhan, China.
□   It has high mortality.
□   Masks, social distancing, and isolation help prevent the spread.
□   Asymptomatic people can spread it.
□  Vaccinated people do not spread it.
□  Vaccination protects against getting COVID and its variants.
□  Experimental vaccines are safe and effective.
□  Natural immunity is not as effective as vaccination.
□  Naturally-derived variants are rapidly occurring, requiring booster shots.
□  Individual rights and freedoms must give way to higher values of health, safety, obedience, and the greater good.
□  Resisters to mandates are selfish, narcisstic, psychopathic, etc.
□  Big pharma can be trusted.
□  The Main Stream Media can be trusted.
□  Scientists, doctors, medical professionals, researchers, writers, and podcasters who challenge the narrative are spreading misinformation and should be censored and disciplined.
□  Costs of lockdown, mandates, business closures, delays in treating other health issues, etc. are justified by predicted cases, contagion risks, and deaths.
□  There is no significant reason to distinguish between: “death with COVID” and “death from COVID.”
□  Doctors should be disciplined for using their best, but non-approved judgment in treating their patients.
□  Accounts of severe COVID illness are important to broadcast as normative, but not accounts of “unapproved” successful treatments and therapies.
□  Accounts of severe adverse reaction following vaccination are extremely rare and cause unnecessary, misinformed fear if allowed to be broadcast.
□  PCR cycle thresholds need not be reported to doctors or their patients who test positive.
□  Vaccine passports are essential for the safety of everyone.
□  There is no deception intended in designating “fully vaccinated” persons as un-vaccinated until 2-weeks after their last vaccination.
□  Discrimination is justified in denying services and amenities to those who are un-vaccinated or who reject the narrative.
□  COVID-19 has nothing to do with “build-back-better” or domination agendas.
If the world wants the truth, the above narrative constitutes the pscience* of COVID, because the real (censored) science has already proven every single one of these narrative statements to be misleading or false. The suppressed evidence is overwhelming and will be recognized in due course, because truth can only be suppressed so long. Those who wittingly or unwittingly promoted or supported the COVID narrative will also, in due course, come to realize the evil which they sustained and which they seduced or bullied others into accepting.

Here are just a few exposures of truth (of hundreds possible) that are being denied / ignored / suppressed by narrative voices:

The truth? The entire COVID narrative is built lie upon lie; bio-weaponed sickness on sickness; unethical experiment on experiment; repetitive psy-op on psy-op; predictable, preventable death upon death.

Questions by the Concerned? Confused? Conflicted?

Possible Answers from Scripture (& teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith)

Q: Does God expect us to study and listen openly to both sides of an issue or controversy?
21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.1

Joseph Smith: I preached to the Saints, setting forth the evils that existed, and that would exist, by reason of hasty judgment, or decisions upon any subject given by any people, or in judging before they had heard both sides of a question;2

Joseph Smith: We deem it a just principle, and it is one the force of which we believe ought to be duly considered by every individual, that all men are created equal, and that all have the privilege of thinking for themselves upon all matters relative to conscience. Consequently, then, we are not disposed, had we the power, to deprive any one of exercising that free independence of mind which heaven has so graciously bestowed upon the human family as one of its choicest gifts;3
Q: Which “way” am I following or being asked to follow? the way of the many? the way of the few?
13 ¶ Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.4
Q: Does the record of Christ's third temptation have any 2021 parallels?
8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship [obey] me.5
Q: Does God ever test the discernment or obedience of His people through the voice of trusted authorities?
Old prophet and Young prophet6
Jeremiah and the Rechabites7
51 Verily, I say unto you [Joseph Smith Jr.]: A commandment I give unto mine handmaid, Emma Smith, your wife, whom I have given unto you, that she stay herself and partake not of that which I commanded you to offer unto her; for I did it, saith the Lord, to prove you all, as I did Abraham, and that I might require an offering at your hand, by covenant and sacrifice.8
Q: Did God caution us about authority and trusting in the arm of flesh or worldly powers?
39 We have learned by sad experience that it is the nature and disposition of almost all men, as soon as they get a little authority, as they suppose, they will immediately begin to exercise unrighteous dominion.9

34 O Lord, I have trusted in thee, and I will trust in thee forever. I will not put my trust in the arm of flesh; for I know that cursed is he that putteth his trust in the arm of flesh. Yea, cursed is he that putteth his trust in man or maketh flesh his arm. 10

19 The weak things of the world shall come forth and break down the mighty and strong ones, that man should not counsel his fellow man, neither trust in the arm of flesh11
Q: Did Jesus honor the Temple even when He criticized those in charge of it?
13 ... and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,
14 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.12
Q: What if I don't believe the COVID narrative?
11 For there was a law that men should be judged according to their crimes. Nevertheless, there was no law against a man's belief; therefore, a man was punished only for the crimes which he had done; therefore all men were on equal grounds.13

2 We believe that no government can exist in peace, except such laws [for the good and safety of society] are framed and held inviolate as will secure to each individual the free exercise of conscience, the right and control of property, and the protection of life.14

5 We believe that all men are bound to sustain and uphold the respective governments in which they reside, while protected in their inherent and inalienable rights by the laws of such governments; and that sedition and rebellion are unbecoming every citizen thus protected, and should be punished accordingly; and that all governments have a right to enact such laws as in their own judgments are best calculated to secure the public interest; at the same time, however, holding sacred the freedom of conscience.15

[NOTE: As most anyone can see, these scriptures (and others) can be used by opposing sides in the COVID debate, but in the gestalt of life and revelation, freedom of conscience is always paramount.]
Q: Is there any history of secret combinations working for power and gain?
22 And whatsoever nation shall uphold such secret combinations, to get power and gain, until they shall spread over the nation, behold, they shall be destroyed; for the Lord will not suffer that the blood of his saints, which shall be shed by them, shall always cry unto him from the ground for vengeance upon them and yet he avenge them not.
23 Wherefore, O ye Gentiles, it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you, that thereby ye may repent of your sins, and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you, which are built up to get power and gain—and the work, yea, even the work of destruction come upon you, yea, even the sword of the justice of the Eternal God shall fall upon you, to your overthrow and destruction if ye shall suffer these things to be.
24 Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you; or wo be unto it, because of the blood of them who have been slain; for they cry from the dust for vengeance upon it, and also upon those who built it up.
25 For it cometh to pass that whoso buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the devil, who is the father of all lies; even that same liar who beguiled our first parents, yea, even that same liar who hath caused man to commit murder from the beginning; who hath hardened the hearts of men that they have murdered the prophets, and stoned them, and cast them out from the beginning.16
Q: What am I to discern about an increasingly bullying government and culture?
5 And that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me.
6 Therefore, I, the Lord, justify you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land;
7 And as pertaining to law of man, whatsoever is more or less than this, cometh of evil.
8 I, the Lord God, make you free, therefore ye are free indeed; and the law also maketh you free.
9 Nevertheless, when the wicked rule the people mourn.17
Q: What does God say about the fear?
12 And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,18

34 Therefore, fear not, little flock; do good; let earth and hell combine against you, for if ye are built upon my rock, they cannot prevail. ...
36 Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not.19

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.20

10 ¶ Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.21

35 And all they who suffer persecution for my name, and endure in faith, though they are called to lay down their lives for my sake yet shall they partake of all this glory.
36 Wherefore, fear not even unto death; for in this world your joy is not full, but in me your joy is full.
37 Therefore, care not for the body, neither the life of the body; but care for the soul, and for the life of the soul.
38 And seek the face of the Lord always, that in patience ye may possess your souls, and ye shall have eternal life.22

George Q. Cannon: Do not brethren, put your trust in man though he be a bishop, an apostle, or a president. If you do, they will fail you at some time or place; they will do wrong or seem to, and your support is gone; but if we lean on God, He never will fail us. When men and women depend on God alone, and trust in Him alone, their faith will not be shaken if the highest in the Church should step aside. Perhaps it is His own design that faults and weaknesses should appear in high places in order that His Saints may learn to trust in Him, and not in any man or men. | George Q. Cannon, Millennial Star, 53:674
Samuel Richards: "We have heard men who hold the priesthood remark, that they would do anything that they were told to do by those who preside over them, if they knew it was wrong: but such obedience is worse than folly to us; it is slavery in the extreme; and the man who would thus willingly degrade himself, should not claim rank among intelligent beings, until he turns from his folly. A man of God...would despise the idea. Others in the extreme exercise of their almighty authority have taught that such obedience was necessary, and that no matter what the saints were told to do by their presidents, they should do it without asking any questions. When Elders of Israel will so far indulge in these extreme notions of obedience as to teach them to the people, it is generally because they have it in their minds to do wrong themselves." | Samuel Richards on Nov. 13, 1852, recorded in the Millennial Star, 14:393-395
George Q. Cannon: If we do anything let us do it understandingly. If we hear any principle taught from the stand that we do not understand let us seek to comprehend it by the Spirit of God. If it be not of God we have the privilege of knowing it. We are not required to receive for doctrine everything that we hear. We may say—"I do not know whether this is true or not, I will not fight it, neither will I endorse it, but I will seek knowledge from God, for that is my privilege, and I will never rest satisfied until I have obtained the light I require." If you hear a doctrine that does not agree with your feelings, or that you do not believe, take this course; do not reject nor endorse hastily, without knowing or understanding. By taking this course you will develop the principle that God designs we should possess, and we will thus become a wise and understanding people, for we will be based on the Rock of Revelation. | Remarks by George Q. Cannon delivered in the Tabernacle, Great Salt Lake City, April 21st, 1867, [Reported by David W. Evans.] found at Journal of Discourses, 26 vols.

Remembering Jeremiah and the Rechabites?

Jeremiah
the "weeping prophet
c. 650 - 570 BC
Artist: Michelangelo
Sistine Chapel ceiling
1 THE word which came unto Jeremiah from the LORD ... saying,
2 Go unto the house of the Rechabites, and speak unto them, and bring them into the house of the LORD, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to drink.
3 Then I took ... the whole house of the Rechabites;
4 And I brought them into the house of the LORD, into the chamber of the sons of Hanan, ...:
5 And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites pots full of wine, and cups, and I said unto them, Drink ye wine.
6 But they said, We will drink no wine: for Jonadab the son of Rechab our father commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye, nor your sons for ever: ...
8 Thus have we obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab our father in all that he hath charged us, to drink no wine all our days, we, our wives, our sons, nor our daughters; ...
12 ¶ Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying, ...
14 The words of Jonadab the son of Rechab, that he commanded his sons not to drink wine, are performed; for unto this day they drink none, but obey their father's commandment: ...
16 Because the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have performed the commandment of their father, which he commanded them; ...
18 ¶ And Jeremiah said unto the house of the Rechabites, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Because ye have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts, and done according unto all that he hath commanded you:
19 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before me for ever.*

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.**

43 And whosoever among you are sick, and have not faith to be healed, but believe, shall be nourished with all tenderness, with herbs and mild food, and that not by the hand of an enemy.***

40 And there were some who died with fevers, which at some seasons of the year were very frequent in the land—but not so much so with fevers, because of the excellent qualities of the many plants and roots which God had prepared to remove the cause of diseases, to which men were subject by the nature of the climate—****

--------------------------------------------------------/
*Old Testament | Jeremiah 35:1-19 (Bold emphasis added.)
UNABRIDGED
1 THE word which came unto Jeremiah from the LORD in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying,
2 Go unto the house of the Rechabites, and speak unto them, and bring them into the house of the LORD, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to drink.
3 Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the son of Habaziniah, and his brethren, and all his sons, and the whole house of the Rechabites;
4 And I brought them into the house of the LORD, into the chamber of the sons of Hanan, the son of Igdaliah, a man of God, which was by the chamber of the princes, which was above the chamber of Maaseiah the son of Shallum, the keeper of the door:
5 And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites pots full of wine, and cups, and I said unto them, Drink ye wine.
6 But they said, We will drink no wine: for Jonadab the son of Rechab our father commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye, nor your sons for ever:
7 Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant vineyard, nor have any: but all your days ye shall dwell in tents; that ye may live many days in the land where ye be strangers.
8 Thus have we obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab our father in all that he hath charged us, to drink no wine all our days, we, our wives, our sons, nor our daughters;
9 Nor to build houses for us to dwell in: neither have we vineyard, nor field, nor seed:
10 But we have dwelt in tents, and have obeyed, and done according to all that Jonadab our father commanded us.
11 But it came to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon came up into the land, that we said, Come, and let us go to Jerusalem for fear of the army of the Chaldeans, and for fear of the army of the Syrians: so we dwell at Jerusalem.
12 ¶ Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying,
13 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Will ye not receive instruction to hearken to my words? saith the LORD.
14 The words of Jonadab the son of Rechab, that he commanded his sons not to drink wine, are performed; for unto this day they drink none, but obey their father's commandment: notwithstanding I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye hearkened not unto me.
15 I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me.
16 Because the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have performed the commandment of their father, which he commanded them; but this people hath not hearkened unto me:
17 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced against them: because I have spoken unto them, but they have not heard; and I have called unto them, but they have not answered.
18 ¶ And Jeremiah said unto the house of the Rechabites, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Because ye have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts, and done according unto all that he hath commanded you:
19 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before me for ever.

Observation from a Prophet - 1843: “The doctors in this region don’t know much… doctors won’t tell you how to go to be well.  They want to kill or cure you to get your money.  Calomel doctors will give you calomel to cure a sliver in the big toe and not stop to know whether the stomach is empty or not.
Calomel on an empty stomach will kill the patient, and lobelia doctors will do the same.
If you feel any inconvenience, take some mild physic two or three times, and then some bitters (herbs.)  If you can’t get anything else, take a little salt and cayenne pepper.  If you can’t get salt, take pecosia, or gnaw down a butternut tree. Get some boreset or horehound…
I will give you advice that will do you good…

The Penultimate*(?) False Flag

A false flag operation is an act committed with the intent of disguising the actual source of responsibility and pinning blame on another party.1
Perhaps this 20th Anniversary of 9-11 is a good time to briefly review2 the long history of false-flag employment by diverse world powers and players. With the historical ubiquity of false flags, one wonders if “false flag” should not be the first presumption in every real or seeming crisis. However, by using the word penultimate, I do not refer to September 11, 2001. The truth of that 9-11 event is still being suppressed and / or ignored, but the penultimate false flag is probably the one we are now experiencing — the one where the powers and their believers are malevolently pointing their finger at Mother Nature while witting and unwitting servitors remain hunched over in bio-labs, obsessed with manufacturing synthetics, tweaking bio-messenger codes, and pumping gain-of-function. All the while, MSM script-readers repetitiously postulate and publish a flawed Mother-Nature narrative. In reality, the accusatory finger is pointing through Mother Nature to the flawed God of a flawed creation. And the MSM is proving to be the index finger (and frequently the middle) of a false-flag factory.

Yes, COVID-19 is riddled with false flags even beyond blaming Mother Nature. In 2020, COVID-19 itself was false-flagged — blamed for all kinds of unrelated deaths. Now, all kinds of co-morbidities and unknown, unexpected, strange morbidities are being false-flagged to obscure vaccine-induced injuries and deaths. And, even as I write, wave on wave of headlines are false-flagging the un-vaccinated for the current delta wave and all the prophesied, endless, future waves that will necessitate tri-annual booster shots or daily pills forever. Thus, vaccine passports are only as good as the most recent booster — and thus, the fully vaccinated will periodically be lumped back in with the faith-filled un-vaccinated heretics and with all their restrictions and persecutions.

BUT, if COVID-19 is the penultimate false flag, what is the ultimate? Could it be some polished knight on a painted horse flaring a flag emblazoned with miracles and promises like healing, health, peace, safety, justice, love, etc. etc. etc.? — a false messiah spouting false promises for a desperately sick, sinful, and oppressed world? And by peace destroy many?
17 And the Lord will set his hand again the second time to restore his people from their lost and fallen state. Wherefore, he will proceed to do a marvelous work and a wonder among the children of men.
18 Wherefore, he shall bring forth his words unto them, which words shall judge them at the last day, for they shall be given them for the purpose of convincing them of the true Messiah, who was rejected by them; and unto the convincing of them that they need not look forward any more for a Messiah to come, for there should not any come, save it should be a false Messiah which should deceive the people;3

23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.4

22 For in those days there shall also arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch, that, if possible, they shall deceive the very elect, who are the elect according to the covenant. ...
25 Wherefore, if they shall say unto you: Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: Behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not;
26 For as the light of the morning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west, and covereth the whole earth, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be.5
Watch therefore, for the false flag cometh first, as sure as night precedes day.

*[P]enultimate means “next to last” or “second to last.” It’s probably because it adds an emphatic extra syllable to the word ultimate that people think it somehow means “more” than ultimate—but it really means less. Used correctly, you can say “the penultimate scene of a play” or “the penultimate line of a poem” or “the film’s penultimate shot.” It’s a formal or literary way of saying “next to last.”

The YES Bait

Why have so many said “yes” to so much that violates human rights and freedoms? Of course, fear and trust in presumed authorities and experts accounts for most of the compliance, but science has also discovered that saying yes to unpleasant or harmful things can be programmed (as it were) by acclimating people to saying yes to preceding minor or innocuous things – a type of gradualism or incrementalism.

Catherine Sanderson says:
In many cases of tremendous evil, evil is carried out in small steps which makes it harder to recognize and also harder to stop. This process relies on a psychological strategy known as the foot-in-the-door phenomenon. This strategy is a two-step compliance technique in which an authority first asks someone to do a small request, but then later goes back and asks for a larger request. What research shows is that, in many cases, if people are initially asked for the larger request they will say “No.” It's pretty easy to resist But once someone has first agreed to a small request, it becomes harder and harder to resist subsequent requests as they get larger and larger in size.1
She then goes on to relate a “foot-in-the-door” experiment in southern California where homeowners who agreed to place a 3-inch square sign – “Keep California Beautiful” – near their front door were approached about two weeks later to place a huge (somewhat tacky, ugly) billboard with the same words “Keep California beautiful” on their front lawn. 55% agreed as opposed to only 17% of home owners whose first and only request was to display the huge, obstructive billboard. The initial yes dramatically increased the rate of a second yes.

Sanderson also refers to the “shocking” 1960s experiments by Stanley Milgram which have been referenced several times in these Déjà Vu Times and Déjà Vu Times II blogs.2 The Stanley Milgram experiments are perhaps the most relevant experiments to understand the unfolding, escalating obedience of 2020-202?. We are. in reality. in a global recycling of escalating obedience to harm demanded by powerful labcoats – consenting to culture shocks that are anti-human.

Many cannot see any parallels because they believe we are in an unprecedented pandemic that demands we sacrifice rights and freedoms for the safety of all, BUT what if the increasingly censored counter-narrative voices are right?3 What if this is all a long-imagined, long-planned pscience4-driven experiment to achieve a Utopian tyranny? What if this is a test of trust in God, not unlike the young prophet's test described in JST 1 Kings 13?5 What if believers in the narrative have been suckered because:
... there are many yet on the earth among all sects, parties, and denominations, who are blinded by the subtle craftiness of men, whereby they lie in wait to deceive, and who are only kept from the truth because they know not where to find it—?6
Sanderson's final words in Lecture Ten describe the lessons and good news that knowledge / awareness of “this natural human tendency to fall prey to authorities demanding obedience can help people resist such pressures.” The lessons:
First, question authority no matter what. It's perhaps human nature to trust someone who is in an authority position and to follow his or her orders. but this sort of mindless obedience can have serious consequences, so be willing to question authority no matter a person's position. Don't be blindly obedient, regardless of their status, their uniform, their title. [Second]. If you are asked to carry out an order by someone, ask whether you would do the same on your own initiative ... There is no excuse to say, I was just following orders. As you've learned in this class, evil can be a slippery slope. So it's also really important, whenever possible, to resist immediately. Once you start obeying it's actually very difficult, psychologically, to stop; to pull yourself out. It's very hard to stop once you've started obeying authority. And agreeing to even small requests. It's actually far easier to resist initially than to extricate yourself after you have already agreed to do some earlier acts. ... Finally, if you're in a group of people, try to find someone else who is willing to join you in resisting. It is hard to stand alone against an authority. It is far easier, psychologically, to have someone else join you in defying the authority. And even if there's a large group of people willing to obey, having a single partner with you who will join you in defying an authority gives people tremendous courage and strength to resist obedience.7

So People, let us review. How many escalating (harmful? inhuman?) “YESes” have we given in the past 18 months? How many more requests / demands are in the works? requests / demands escalating to worse than in the Milgram experiments? And for those who insist (against overwhelming latter-day and historical evidence) that COVID 19 is NOT a long-planned, malevolent coup against rights and freedoms orchestrated by servitors of evil (and aided by the deceived or the complicit), there is little that can be said to awaken you now. You seem to have chosen to believe that safety (personal and allegedly other) is a first principle which has been known for ages to be a suasion and foundation of tyranny.
John Stuart Mill: “A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.8
Note that the gift bait outlined in “Corruption by Design”9 and the Yes bait often converge to the same result — a morally-emaciated, over-the-cliff catastrophe as pictured by Boardman Robinson 105 years ago.

Lesson from an Old Prophet,* Revisited



In recent months, we have been counselled as Church members to earnestly seek and obey the promptings of the Holy Spirit in our individual lives. In recent weeks, we have also been counselled to resume wearing masks (even when not required by local governments) and to be vaccinated, which vaccines, in honesty, must be acknowledged as experimental. And in further honesty, should be assessed in light of decades of secret experiments on unwitting human subjects as profiled in a recent Deja Vu Times post titled “Cheaper than Chimpanzees.”1 For many people, these two recent counsels have created a type of double bind.2

What is one to do then, when the promptings via counsel #1 oppose the request of counsel #2? What if one's knowledge of agendas past and present, plus the clear and convincing voice of the Spirit requires one to refuse to honor or support the dictates and mandates of combined world powers?

Some may scoff at an alleged double bind or at resistance to seemingly innocuous actions of purported protection and good citizenry, YET for others, these are not small actions of either protection or good global citizenry. They present as actions that sustain and further agendas of manufactured fear, division, distrust, alienation, isolation, pscience3 fraud, coercion, scapegoating, bullying, mass psychosis,4 and tyranny — a slippery slope of increasing compliance, complicity, and destruction of values, rights, and freedoms.

So how to make sense of all this? It takes me back to a Déjà Vu post from November 2010 — to the story of a young prophet— to JST 1 Kings 13. There an old prophet counsels a young prophet to do something the Spirit of God has counselled against. Perhaps it is time to revisit that story and post.
Lesson from an Old Prophet*

Note: I am not implying conscious purpose or direction concerning the current president or presidency. I have no way of knowing. Rather, JST 1 Kings 13 is the story of a young prophet being tested in perhaps the most challenging way possible. If there is any analogy, it may be about us navigating these latter-days.

2. Double bind: a psychological predicament in which a person receives from a single source conflicting messages that allow no appropriate response to be made. from https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/double%20bind
A double bind is a dilemma in communication in which an individual (or group) receives two or more conflicting messages, with one negating the other. In some circumstances (particularly families and relationships) this might be emotionally distressing. This creates a situation in which a successful response to one message results in a failed response to the other (and vice versa), so that the person will automatically be wrong regardless of response. The double bind occurs when the person cannot confront the inherent dilemma, and therefore can neither resolve it nor opt out of the situation. Double bind theory was first described by Gregory Bateson and his colleagues in the 1950s,[1] in a theory on the origins of schizophrenia and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Double binds are often utilized as a form of control without open coercion—the use of confusion makes them difficult both to respond to and to resist.[2]:271–278
A double bind generally includes different levels of abstraction in the order of messages and these messages can either be stated explicitly or implicitly within the context of the situation, or they can be conveyed by tone of voice or body language. Further complications arise when frequent double binds are part of an ongoing relationship to which the person or group is committed.[1][2] From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_bind (Bold emphasis added.)
3. Pscience is based, not on facts, observations, method, experiment, and truth, but on agendas sustaining the pursuit and protection of power, gain, glory, and domination.

5. And are we not all supposed to be prophets for our own lives?

Help is on the Way! but ...

Observations from Sunday's lesson reading:
For I, the Lord, have put forth my hand to exert the powers of heaven; ye cannot see it now, yet a little while and ye shall see it, and know that I am, and that I will come and reign with my people.1
Meanwhile,
... verily I [the Lord] say unto you, the rest of my servants, go ye forth as your circumstances [and technology] shall permit, in your several callings, unto the great and notable cities and villages, reproving the world in righteousness of all their unrighteous and ungodly deeds, setting forth clearly and understandingly the desolation of abomination in the last days.2
So, how are we, “the rest of My servants,” doing? Are we sufficiently awake to a sense of our awful situation3 so as to be rending the heavens with cries for
like unto
11 And Asa cried unto the LORD his God, and said, LORD, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O LORD, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee.4

9 If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help.5

1 PLEAD my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.
2 Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.6

17 Therefore may God grant unto you, my brethren, that ye may begin to exercise your faith unto repentance, that ye begin to call upon his holy name, that he would have mercy upon you;
18 Yea, cry unto him for mercy; for he is mighty to save.
19 Yea, humble yourselves, and continue in prayer unto him.
20 Cry unto him when ye are in your fields, yea, over all your flocks.
21 Cry unto him in your houses, yea, over all your household, both morning, mid–day, and evening.
22 Yea, cry unto him against the power of your enemies.
23 Yea, cry unto him against the devil, who is an enemy to all righteousness.
24 Cry unto him over the crops of your fields, that ye may prosper in them.
25 Cry over the flocks of your fields, that they may increase.
26 But this is not all; ye must pour out your souls in your closets, and your secret places, and in your wilderness.
27 Yea, and when you do not cry unto the Lord, let your hearts be full, drawn out in prayer unto him continually for your welfare, and also for the welfare of those who are around you.7
Are we really crying for help? Can we allow ourselves to discern the depth of evil design that is bent on the destruction of the world as God created it? and admit how far we have allowed that evil design to get above us? Do we think our cries manifest weakness? Will our cries for help make a difference? Can we cry out and trust at the same time?
10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.8

1. Doctrine and Covenants | Section 84:119  | Yes, this was given in 1832, being 189 years ago, and maybe we still can't see it (what God's hand did to exert the powers of heaven), but the things we should be able to see and discern are the woeful conditions of our latter-day world; how much is already being destroyed around us, not at the hand of nature, but by the corrupted, misused, and abused  technologies of man.

3. Book of Mormon | Ether 8:24-25 ~ Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you; or wo be unto it, because of the blood of them who have been slain; for they cry from the dust for vengeance upon it, and also upon those who built it up. For it cometh to pass that whoso buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the devil, who is the father of all lies; even that same liar who beguiled our first parents, yea, even that same liar who hath caused man to commit murder from the beginning; who hath hardened the hearts of men that they have murdered the prophets, and stoned them, and cast them out from the beginning.
