VEXATION: THEY CONTINUE TO ANNOY, INCONVENIENCE & TORTURE US
"Wear your mask, but ...tip your mask, but ...make sure to secure it again too!?"
It seems that almost every single day we see a new seemingly insane and illogical 'rule' regarding COVID and they keep finding new ways to confuse, vex and inconvenience us. The above notice is no exception.
I guess they just can't decide which draconian measure is more important - to make us wear a mask already deemed ineffective against the virus, or to make sure we can be tracked via Facial Recognition.
Again, they 'want it all' and you must comply! They want it their way or else. Of course, it's a little difficult to know what 'their way' is when things keep changing every day. The world has truly become an 'Idiocracy'.
Our current leaders are the epitome of the double-mindedness mentioned in the Bible with constant lies, hypocrisy and changeableness, promoting instability throughout society and the economy without regard to God or man:
"A double minded man is unstable in all his ways." James 1:8
We are now being 'vexed' on every side whether it be our jobs and families, our rights, or our very freedom. However, the Bible has a lot to say about Vexation and its cause being the wickedness of the people:
“The Lord shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me. The Lord shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land.” Deuteronomy 28:20-21
A chart is available that shows Coronvirus deaths are still only in the 10's of thousands (less even than in a typical flu season) but Abortions are in the 10's of millions for the same time period. This is shameful, and a reproach to all:
"Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people."
You don't hear these horrifying numbers in the media at all. The focus is all on a virus that is - even according now to the 'experts' - just a flu virus. At the very least, it's being used as a distraction from far greater problems with our society.
"But ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit. because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.” Isaiah 65:12-14
A group in Colorado has called for people to begin HOWLING every night at 8:00 to protest being locked down. This 'shelter-in-place, stay-at-home' lockdown was foisted upon us quite suddenly and very unexpectedly (and unwillingly!).
“Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee, and awake that shall vex thee.” Habakkuk 2:7
Why though has God allowed this to happen. We can't know for absolutely sure, but as a nation we have 'spilled blood' in violence to the innocent, and we may therefore be receiving our due 'woe' and recompense.
"Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil thee; because of men's blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein. Woe to him that coveteth an evil covetousness." Habakkuk 2:8-9
All of this does seem very sudden and surprising, but I think the more surprising thing is how 'longsuffering' God has been with us. The well-known verse below tells us what we now need to do before God:
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14
