What If 'Follow The Prophet' Could Get You Killed?

What If 'Follow The Prophet' Could Get You Killed?Previously: The Brain God Gave You
I'm encouraged by the growing number of members who are discovering that "follow the prophet" is a false doctrine.  Joseph Smith actually berated the saints for depending on him, warning them that their overdependence on the prophet was causing them to be "darkened in their minds." That was a nice way of saying that their penchant for following the prophet was turning them stupid.
God, on the other hand, didn't mince words.  He did not just warn against trusting in men, he said those who did so would be cursed. (2 Ne 28:31, Jer 17:5, Jer 7:8, et al.)
You will search in vain for any scripture promoting the idea that we should follow and obey the leaders of the Church.  Joseph Smith was the only president of the Church who was ordained of God to also be a prophet, and even in that instance God did not advise us to follow or obey Joseph.  God tells us we should "heed" (not obey) only those words Joseph received directly from God through revelation. (D&C 21:4-5)
God has never said anything remotely resembling that regarding any other president of the church.  If you believe he has, please show me the revelation.  Joseph Smith is the only one whose words we are told to "heed," and even then the words we are told to heed are not Joseph Smith's words, but the words of Jesus Christ who spoke through Joseph.
So what are we to think when modern leaders of the LDS Church try to convince the members that they should run right out and get a "vaccine," when the very government agency charged with approving vaccines still refuses to approve any of the covid injections as ready to go? 
Does that surprise you?  Did you think this vaccine has already been given the stamp of approval by the government agency charged with that duty?  It has not. Do you know why the Food and Drug Administration has not approved these so-called "vaccines"?  It's because those "vaccines" have not yet undergone the trials required by law to be proven safe and effective.  So, assuming Church leaders want you to try a "vaccine" that may or may not even work, that still doesn't explain why Russell Nelson et al would be so anxious to see you put your life and health at risk, given that even the scientists charged with the testing are not able to give it their approval.
With all the hype from the media and politicians trying to convince you to take the injection, you may think these medicines have passed all the rigorous trials.  They have not. The various injection medications have not been approved for general use. They have been authorized for emergency use only.  "Authorized" is not the same as "approved." That's specified right there in the law at U.S. Code 21 Sec. 360bbb-3.
Are You Dying of AIDS?  If you're old enough to recall the AIDS epidemic, you may have seen horrifying videos of AIDS patients dying slow, agonizing deaths from that disease.  Watching these videos was heartbreaking, as a person with AIDS slowly wastes away until finally, months later, comes the sweet release of death.
At that time there was no known treatment for Aquired Immune Deficiency.  And as the name implies, there was no method known to strengthen the immune system against it.  And then one day it was announced that the FDA was running trials on a new drug known as AZT that might show promise.  The catch? The FDA would not approve the use of this drug for AIDS patients because, without the usual tests, trials, and further research which requires 5-10 years before any new drug can go on the market, there was no way of knowing whether AZT was safe, let alone whether it was effective.  So they wouldn't let anyone have access to the drug, because for all the government knew, if an AIDS patient took AZT, it could kill him.
AIDS victims said, "look, we're dying anyway.  We don't care about the side effects, at this point we're willing to try anything!"
As a result of the public outcry, use of AZT was authorized under U.S. 21 for Emergency Use Authorization, which allowed people to try an unapproved drug as long as the recipient was willing to assume all the risk.  If something went wrong, the patient could not sue the government or the pharmaceutical company that manufactured it.  The underlying assumption was that the patient understood the drug was experimental.  They knew they were taking a gamble. The risk was theirs and theirs alone.
Happily,  AZT turned out to be a succesful treatment for quite a number of AIDS patients, and it led to further advances for those suffering with AIDS.  So that story has a happy ending. 
But it's important to understand that AZT was an experimental drug, and the people who couldn't wait to take that drug became willing guinea pigs on which the drug was tested for nearly a decade.  Why not?  What did they have to lose?  AIDS was certainly going to kill them, so they were willing to be experimented on if there was even a tiny chance it might not.
Are You Dying of Covid? So here's the pertinent question: if the Covid vaccine has been authorized for emergency use like AZT was, where is the emergency?  With a virus that has an almost imperceptible fatality rate of between one and two percent (depending on the age of the patient), what would motivate the average American to put himself at actual risk, given the deleterious effects already experienced by many who have already taken that gamble?
We now know that what is being called a pandemic is anything but a pandemic. A pandemic is properly defined as a disease that spreads across many countries.  Okay, fine.  But this one turned out to be nowhere near as deadly as we were initially told.  Tony Fauci's earliest prediction, the one he published along with two collegues in the New England Journal of Medicine, turned out to be accurate. The Sars-CoV-2 virus, popularly known as COVID-19, ended up being akin to a severe seasonal flu. Some people do die from the flu, but not that many. Most people get better. (See my first blog post on this topic, Science Is Your Friend, for an excerpt from that report and more.) 
As we all know, the establishment inflated the death numbers to make it appear that nearly three and a half million people died of Covid, when most of those people actually died from heart disease, cancer, pneumonia, diabetes, old age, and obesity.  The actual number of people who died who only had covid and no other illness was somewhere around ten thousand. But everyone coming into a hospital who was on the verge of death for any reason were tested for Covid, and surprise, surprise! Nearly everyone tested positive.
Yes, no matter what illness a person complained of when they entered a hospital, an overwhelming number were "diagnosed" with having covid as well.  This was due to what has been exposed as a faulty method of testing using the RT-PCR test. So if your grandma was in the hospital breathing her last, no matter what the reason was she originally came in for treatment, COVID was invariably stamped on her death certificate because every patient who dies "with" covid translates into a financial benefit for the hospital, courtesy of American taxpayers.  The reality is you can get a positive test from anyone by ratcheting up the cycles on a PCR test above 35,000, which was being done constantly.  Many perfectly healthy people have tested positive with the PCR test; you may have been one of them.  In Tanzania,  A container of motor oil and a papaya tested positive for Covid. So Covid "cases" mean absolutely nothing. Sometimes numbers do lie.
The Virus Is Real But The Pandemic Is A Hoax
If there was an actual, emergency pandemic, you would be hearing sirens in the streets day and night. Hospitals would be overflowing (they're not), people you know would be dropping dead,  and graveyards would be...well, they'd be like graveyards.  But a peek at the total number of people who died in 2020 compared with the total number of people who died the year before -and pretty much every year before that- shows there has not been a skyrocketing number of deaths since Covid became the disease du jour. If we were in the midst of a real pandemic, there would be a massively large number of deaths compared to the previous year.  Instead, the number of people who died last year was very close to the number that died the year before. And the number of people who have died so far this year is on par with the yearly average. 
In other words, people die every year from heart disease, cancer, pneumonia, diabetes, old age, and obesity.  And of course, there's the usual number of people who die each year from the flu, which for some reason seems to have disappeared from the scoreboard in 2021.  A cynic might say the reason nobody got the flu this year was because everyone who actually had influenza was counted as having Covid.  Put another way, if everyone who had the flu was actually counted as having had the flu, the Covid numbers would be way down.  And if the Covid numbers were way down, what would the politicians use to keep scaring the pants off us?  The common cold?
If there was truly a pandemic caused by the coronavirus, there would be a massive number of people dying from Covid-19 in addition to the usual number of people who die every year from the flu.  But there isn't. Everything remains pretty much the same, aside from the fact that no one seems to be dying of the flu anymore.  So why is  that?  What the heck happened to the annual flu statistics?
Guess Who Had The Flu This Year?
I can't speak for anyone else, but I can tell you my wife and I caught the flu in January (we can tell the symptoms, which are different from the symptoms for SARS-CoV-2) and from there my illness morphed into the usual bronchitis I tend to come down with every winter. I could tell by my symptoms that it was bronchitis (I'm no stranger to the malady) but before my doctor would prescribe the prednisone I requested from him, he insisted I get tested for Covid "just in case." If I wanted the prednisone, I would have to comply, so I did. But I knew the test would be useless, and here's why: when a person is said to have tested positive for Covid, we are conditioned to believe he has the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is a very serious thing.  But it's actually quite rare that someone would come down with the COVID-19. Very often the patient has come down with nothing more serious than the common cold.
As Dr. Joseph Mercola explains:
The problem with antibody testing is that there are seven different coronaviruses known to cause respiratory illness in humans. Four of them cause symptoms associated with the common cold:
In addition to the common cold, OC43 and HKU1 — two of the most commonly encountered betacoronaviruses — are also known to cause bronchitis, acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and pneumonia in all age groups. The other three human coronaviruses — which are capable of causing more serious respiratory illness — are:
The tricky part is that the antibodies created by these different coronaviruses appear very similar, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention admits recovering from the common cold can trigger a positive antibody test for COVID-19, even if you were never infected with SARS-CoV-2 specifically. As explained on the CDC’s “Test for Past Infection” web page,
“Antibody tests check your blood by looking for antibodies, which may tell you if you had a past infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. Antibodies are proteins that help fight off infections and can provide protection against getting that disease again (immunity). Antibodies are disease specific …
A positive test result shows you may have antibodies from an infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. However, there is a chance a positive result means that you have antibodies from an infection with a virus from the same family of viruses (called coronaviruses), such as the one that causes the common cold. (Dr. Joseph Mercola, "Common Cold May Trigger Covid-19 Antibody Test")

So when I was told I had tested positive for the coronavirus, I naturally assumed it was either OC43 or HKU1, since either one of those are the coronaviruses that would have caused my bronchitis.  The test result I received in the mail didn't specify, so I called around until I got someone from the lab. But all she could tell me was that I tested positive for Covid, by which, of course, she meant I tested positive for the coronavirus. Down here on this lower rung of the ladder, your basic lab technician has no idea there are different types of respiratory coronaviruses.  They know nothing other than the test tells them the patient tested positive for the coronavirus.  Precisely which coronavirus, they haven't a clue.
I've read enough studies to know that if I had actually come down with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, I would most likely be dead. THAT is the serious coronavirus, and the reality is very few Americans have contracted that particular strain.  Remember last year how everyone was panicked because there weren't going to be enough intubator machines to go around?  Those might have been needed if there was a true epidemic of SARS-CoV-2, but since most "cases" of Covid-19 were most likely the coronavirus responsible for colds and flu, those machines were almost never needed.
Remember when President Trump was hospitalized with Covid?  Certainly if an intubator was needed, the President of the United States would have had access to one.  But he didn't need one, not because he's such a boss, but because, like most Americans, he probably had a cold or the seasonal flu.  The doctors -also the best medical experts available- gave him some medicine and had him rest up a few days, then he walked out of the hospital and went back to work. Just like you did the last time you caught the flu and then got over it.
By the way, I never got that prednisone I requested because my doctor was unsure of whether it would react negatively, what with my having Covid and all. So I treated it myself using a mixture of saline and food grade hydrogen peroxide in my nebulizer machine and was a lot better in two days. You can find instructions HERE with a lot more detail and video instructions HERE (P.S. it also cured my "Covid-19")

Somebody Wants You Injected
Given all the hype from the media and politicians, you wouldn't know that the covid shots have not been approved by the FDA, but merely allowed under the same Emergency Use Authorization that permitted people to allow themselves to be the guinea pigs for testing AZT.  Media talking heads and feckless politicians are currently drowning out the voices of actual medical professionals who are trying to tell you that the covid vaccines are experimental and therefore potentially dangerous.  It shouldn't surprise us that it is the medical professionals -at least a thousand frontline doctors and nurses as well as virologists, epimediologists, biochemists, and other experts in disease- who are issuing dire warnings about the growing number of adverse reactions among vaccine recipients, including permanent disability and death. 
An unusual number of deaths.
If you are at all curioius as to why the ruling class is so anxious to get everybody vaccinated, and you suspect all this talk of "vaccine deniers" is just a smokescreen, well, it is. There is a frantic campaign to get you to ignore the science and the scientists who are trying to get the truth out.  Below is a presentation by Dr. Christiane Northrup, one doctor among many who are alarmed at what is currently happening. In light of all the propaganda you're getting through the media, you might want to consider this a crash course in "Covid Vaccines 101."  It's a perfect introduction as to why you may want to reject the now panicked push from certain politicians, reporters, and church leaders:

Attention People Of Earth:You Are Being Lied To

We are bombarded every day by the opinions of moronic pundits who haven't taken a class in science since the 9th grade and are probably not even aware those subjecting themselves to the "vaccine" are being used as guinea pigs. So why would you want to participate? To what end could you possibley benefit? There is certainly no upside to taking the jab, but the risks are enormous. 
Just last week the CDC reported over ten thousand people who had been vaccinated wound up being infected anyway. That does not take into account the thousands who have been harmed or the hundreds who have died. I can't even keep up with the number of deaths among the recently vaccinated, but you can check out this site -one of many that are attempting to catalog all reports where people have died or had serious reactions after taking the shot. 
So. Here's the thing: if you are a member of the church who still buys into the false teaching that you should "follow the prophet" on this topic, the question you might want to ask yourself is "why?"
Does the God who gave you the ability to think and reason really want you to risk your health and possibly your life just on the say-so of men who hold title and position in the church? If you believe Russell Nelson has received a revelation from God saying the members should all take the vaccine, why has he not published that revelation so you can read it and pray about it and receive a witness from the Holy Ghost? And if he has not received a revelation telling you God wants you to take this vaccine, why in heaven's name would you want to take advice from him that could very possibly ruin your life and the lives of those you love?
This Church has had many presidents, but only one was ordained of God to be His prophet. If you want to "follow" a president, then go right ahead. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Consistent with the CDC report above showing over ten thousand people have come down with the virus after being vaccinated, noted French virologist Luc Montagnier has said the Covid vaccines reflect a scientific error as well as a medical error and that the history books will show it was "an unacceptable mistake."

Take if from me, watching senate hearings can be incredibly tedious, but every now and then I catch something that makes me sit up and take notice. On May 11th of this year Senator Richard Burr was questioning Tony Fauci and representatives from the FDA and the NIH when out pops this surprising exchange:
Senator Burr: (02:25:51)
Okay. This question, I’m going to go to Dr. Fauci, Dr. Marks, and Dr. Walensky. What percentage of the employees in your institute, your center, or your agency, of your employees, has been vaccinated?
Dr. Anthony Fauci: (02:26:13)
I’m not 100% sure, Senator, but I think it’s probably a little bit more than half, probably around 60%.
Senator Burr: (02:26:19)
Dr. Marks?
Dr. Peter Marks: (02:26:21)
I can’t tell you the exact number, but it’s probably in the same range. Some people vaccinated at our facility, and others outside of the facility.
Senator Burr: (02:26:30)
Dr. Walensky?
Dr. Rochelle Walensky: (02:26:31)
We’re encouraging our employees to get vaccinated. We’ve been doing town halls and education seminars. Our staff have the option to report their vaccination status, but as you understand, the federal government is not requiring it, so we do not know.

The "employees" of those agencies are mostly seasoned scientists and medical researchers.  If half of them have not yet taken the jab, I'm inclined to believe they have their reasons.  Do they know something their agency heads don't want to admit?  You can watch that exchange HERE at 02:25:51. 
And this just in: Mike Adams, also known as The Health Ranger, reports having received a direct warning from a government insider that the deep state is planning a massive false flag event that will produce many casualties and be blamed on "anti-vaxxers" and gun owners. The event will be used to confiscate firearms nationwide and criminalize all anti-vax speech online. 
Take that for what you will, but I'm inclined to believe him. Mike, like many others, has meddled with the forces of evil for a long time and today he sounds legitimately shaken. You can hear Mike's report by clicking HERE
