Amid spiking coronavirus cases, Austria announced on Friday that it would implement a full national lockdown, and would also legislate a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all eligible citizens – the first of its kind in a Western nation. Austria is one of several European countries to dictate more stringent COVID-19 restrictions as a fourth coronavirus wave sweeps the continent. Following the introduction of rigid regulations, protests and riots exploded across Europe.
Three people were hospitalized late Friday after police opened fire on lockdown protesters in downtown Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Rioters reportedly torched cars, launched fireworks, and attacked police. Police attempted to control the crowd with water cannons. Dutch police said that 51 people were arrested during the demonstration against the new COVID-19 restrictions.
As a born-again Spirit filled believer I understand what it means to stand and walk in faith. I understand that we have the power to come against principalities and power according to Ephesians 6:10-13. I also know that Jesus said in Mark 11 that we could speak to the mountain and it would be removed into the sea.
I am also a man that lives in the real world, and for whatever reason sometimes our prayers do not work. Is it not in the perfect will of God? Is it double mindedness? I don’t know. Saying all that I truly hope that the videos and words sent to me from good and Godly people come true, I pray everyday that God would move heaven and earth to accomplish our prayers for this nation. Normal Americans are appalled at what the ruling class politicians are attempting to do. Stolen election and stifling the 1st Amendment is truly scary. Lockdowns, shut downs, forced vaccinations and thought police roaming the internet taking away our fought for freedoms. That is enough to keep one awake at night. What scares me the most is that God is sovereign and His will trumps (no pun intended) ours. If our hope is not realized, we need to understand we are in a battle for our very lives and way of life. It will be a Warring Church that leads us out of this chaos we seem headed for. To God be the glory. Either way…
We stand with Christ and His Word.

Asymptomatic cases “not the major drivers” of pandemic, scientists claim
Earlier this month, a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine announced findings that asymptomatic patients were, in both relative and absolute terms, unlikely to infect close contacts.
