Watchman Warning: Daily Devotional, Denying God’s Truth When Claiming to Be a Christian Can Be a Deadly Mistake
Denying God’s Truth When Claiming to Be a Christian Can Be a Deadly Mistake, Making One Hellbound, S. Michael Houdmann and GotQuestions.blog Proud of It, There Are Un-Godly EVIL People.
The fact is, the truth matters – especially when you’re on the receiving end of a lie.” And nowhere is this more important than in the area of faith. Eternity is an awfully long time to be wrong Got Question .Org.
From CEO S. Michael Houdmann Got Question.Org... Let me say from the outset, I am not going to directly answer the question. Why not? Because I believe it is a decision every Christian presented with the opportunity to get a COVID-19 vaccine and/or a booster should make based on his/her own convictions. My purpose in writing this post is to address some misconceptions about the vaccines so Christians can prayerfully consider the decision from a perspective of truth, not misinformation. These misconceptions are based on questions we receive at GotQuestions.org.
Mistruth: The COVID-19 vaccine is the mark of the beast.
As a background, please read “What is the mark of the beast?” In summary, the mark of the beast will be recognizable by the following five items:
(1) It will be instituted in the end times during the reign of the Antichrist. See Revelation chapter 13.
(2) It will be required for anyone to be able to buy or sell. See Revelation 13:17.
(3) Some form of worship of and/or allegiance to the Antichrist will be required to receive it. See Revelation 14:9, 11; 15:2; 16:2; 19:20; and 20:4.
(4) It will somehow relate to the number 666. See Revelation 13:18.
(5) Anyone who refuses to take the mark of the beast will be killed. See Revelation 13:15.
Since none of those five factors are involved with receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, no, a COVID-19 vaccine is not the mark of the beast.
Partial truth: The COVID-19 vaccine is created using the cells from an aborted baby.
It is important to know that there are multiple COVID-19 vaccines. There are numerous different vaccines in various stages of availability and testing. Some of the vaccines are at least partly connected to aborted fetal cell lines from the 1960s and 1970s. Does the fact that some aspects of some of the vaccines are connected to abortions that occurred 50-60 years ago mean the vaccines themselves are unethical? Possibly. But, it is not as clear cut as those who oppose vaccines make it out to be. Very similar testing processes to what was used for the COVID vaccines were also used for many common over-the-counter medications (Tylenol, Advil, aspirin, etc.), as well as many widely used prescriptions. If we refused to have any part in anything that had any connection to something unethical in the past, we would likely be very surprised at how many things we would have to give up.
If you are convinced that you should have no part in a vaccine from aborted fetal cell lines, and therefore refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine, I applaud you for standing by your convictions. But, there are, or will be, COVID-19 vaccines that do not come from this ethically questionable background.
Mistruth: The COVID-19 vaccine permanently reprograms your DNA.
Again, there is more than one COVID-19 vaccine. The different vaccines work in different ways. Some of the vaccines work in a very traditional manner. Even with the new mRNA vaccines, the above description is a distortion. Essentially, the mRNA vaccines instruct your cells to create a harmless (on its own) part of the virus so that the body will recognize it as a threat and attack it. Should an actual virus infection occur, your body will then be pre-equipped to attack the virus. The mRNA vaccines do not reprogram your DNA and the effect they have on your RNA is not permanent.
Unproven: The COVID-19 vaccine is not safe because it was rushed.
It is true that the COVID-19 vaccines were produced in record time. Supposedly, the time savings were made possible by the removal of unnecessary delays and by running the tests and trials simultaneously, rather than one after the other. Over the long term, some of the vaccines may turn out to have serious side effects. But, so far, the vaccines are proving themselves to be both safe and effective. Something being developed quickly, or even in record time, is not necessarily a sign of danger. It could, in fact, be evidence of God’s mercy.
Should a Christian get a COVID-19 vaccine?
I am convinced that getting a COVID-19 vaccine is a matter of personal conviction and discernment, not of right vs. wrong or good vs. evil. Do balanced and thorough research and speak to medical experts whom you trust. Ask God for wisdom (James 1:5). Whatever you decide, do it in faith (Romans 14:23).
Show grace and peace to those who come to a different decision than you (Ephesians 4:15; Colossians 4:6; James 1:19).

SRH:And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies?
Bill Gates: Vaccinated against God?
The video depicts a scientist giving a presentation before a small group of assumed government officials at the Pentagon. Not to CIA as this video is labelled. The speaker in the video was proposing a new vaccine that could be used to target and disable the so-called “God gene” in the human mind. As if that’s not concerning enough, he goes on to describe a plan to create a pandemic that could be used to inoculate the masses.
In 2020/21 that certainly resonates with Bill Gates and the WHO plans to vaccinate the whole world with toxic experimental gene-therapy agents against a coronavirus that is not much worse than a bad flu. Agenda 201, Agenda 2030 etc come to mind.
The infamous “FunVax video” has been supposedly debunked many times but in the video below the author revisits the evidence and reconsiders the possibility. Could it be real? He decides that there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the project could be real and has been covered up. He gives that idea a 50:50 chance of being real.
Check it out yourself!
The idea behind the alleged science presented is that they could vaccinate the fundamental religious nature out of people. Of course the speaker targets extremists. And a true born-again Christian would know that belief in God does not depend on genetics but on the will of the Living God. It is through the Spirit that we are born again.
But you can easily see where this sort of idea could lead, especially with a billionaire to who loves funding vaccines for just about everything. Nothing could go wrong with that eh? Vaccinate everyone against any belief in God? Or use a vaccine like a mRNA gene-therapy to modify the human brain?
Who would they target? Christians who will not go along with the globalist/Gates plans for global ID/vaccination/digital wallet because they might see it as a form of mass control leading to one aspect at least of the biblical mark of the beast.
More mind control of the masses the better eh! Certainly that could help the New World Order loonies control the remaining portion of the population they leave alive after the next few culls with their COVID vaccines. I mean COVID-19, COVID-21 and COVID-23 or whatever they call them.
But no need to worry because in the end God is the winner.
Man proposes but God disposes. Thanks Edwin Landseer.
Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies?
Now, look, I've set you as a watchman, and you are responsible to hear My word and to speak My word. And if I say to the wicked, "You're going to die," if you warn them and they listen, great, they will live. If they don't listen, at least you've delivered your soul. If you don't warn them and they die, then you're responsible. The blood is on your hands.
What does it mean to have the blood on my hands? What does it mean to fail in my service to God? If God is saying to the wicked, "Hey, you better turn," and God uses or calls me to be the spokesman to warn those people that they better turn from their wickedness or God's judgment is coming, and if I fail to do it and God's judgment comes and they're destroyed, what does that mean that their blood is on my hands? It means that God holds me responsible, and that the reward that I would have for faithful service will not be given to me.
Now, notice he wasn't told to convince the wicked to turn. He wasn't told to argue with them. He was only told to declare to them the warning of God. That's all. We so often in our Christian experience make the mistake of thinking that we've got to somehow convert people to Jesus Christ. You can't convert them to Jesus Christ. God doesn't call you to convert people to Jesus Christ. He calls you to warn people. And therein is the calling of God. "I've called you, " He said, "to warn them." You've got to obey it. You've got to be responsible.
Now, again, When a righteous man does turn from his righteousness, and commits iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, and he shall die (Eze 3:20):
In other words, here's a guy turned from God, going down the wrong path, and God puts the stumblingblock that's going to trip him into hell.
and because thou has not given him a warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at your hand (Eze 3:20). Source: Bible Read
Here God is speaking. He says He comes as a thief (1 Thessalonians 5:2), meaning when those in darkness cannot see Him coming. But believers are not in darkness that that day should overtake them as a thief. (1 Thessalonians 5:4) He also says to keep your clothes on, which means to keep the faith, keep trusting the Lord that He will be victorious and we will endure unto the end without shame because we do not deny the Lord our Saviour.
And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which stands for the children of your people; and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation, even to that same time: and at that time your people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
I (Jesus) am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand Got Questions.Org is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when S. Michael Houdmann sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.
