Discussion for Psalms 23:4

  • Darren Primm on Psalms 23:4
    Revelations talks about the mark of the beast and the unforgivable sin. My thoughts (in these days of lies and deceit) and with movies and media, we are bombarded with genetic upgrades, movies like "species" and "avatar" Etc, Etc constantly glorifying this idea that science can give us a DNA upgrade, making us healthier, smarter, faster, stronger, etc. now with this "so called" covid pandemic we are facing mandatory vaccinations! The new vaccine coming is a cdte nanotechnology metal mesh vaccination cdte is the exact same thing as that the solar panels are made out of the interaction between the sun and the cdte is what creates the power to solar panels cdte inside the human body literally attaches itself to all body tissues cells DNA and RNA it literally adds another chromazone to a human body's DNA! This sounds frightening (as it should) but I very seriously believe by changing the genetic code of Gods temple (our bodies) we have committed the irreversible and unforgivable sin.

    Is this vaccination the same thing as the market the beast I read your your article and it brings to mind the Mark of the beast similar to the Social Security card you can't work by seller trade without it so that's unforgivable sin would be the Mark of the beast am I wrong or am I or am I correct please advise
  • Jesse - in Reply on Psalms 23:4
    Mike, the answer to your question would be no. Getting a vaccine is not the same as taking the mark of the beast. If the person who's giving the vaccine tells you that you need to make yourself an image of the beast and worship it, I would not take the vaccine. Getting a vaccine is not the unpardonable sin as Bob mentions and gives an excellent description of. Please know that a believer who has been born of God's Spirit will never take that mark anyways. And as far as forcing the vaccine on everyone, that goes against people's constitutional rights as American citizens. There would have to be some major changes in order to force a vaccine on everyone. You have nothing to worry about if you are in Christ and Christ is in you!

    If one can not buy or sell without the 666 mark then we shall know what it is.

    Who knows if the Gov makes it so you can not buy or sell with out a vaccine?

    Revelation 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    I do not want a vaccine with mercury used as a preservative and green monkey kidney cells or aborted baby tissue injected into my body.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Psalms 23:4
    Greetings Darren, I am no fan of the godless antichrists pushing the vaccines. I know they put aborted fetal tissue and mercury (thimerasal) into the vaccines. According to the Bible alone the unpardonable sin is attributing the works of the Holy Spirit to the devil. Jesus was casting out devils and some of the Jewish scribes claimed he was doing it via the power of satan.

    Mark Chapter 3:22 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He (Jesus) hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.

    28 Verily I (Jesus) say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:

    29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

    30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit

    Many people have been injured with vaccines and big pharma is exempt from those lawsuits.

    the Greek word for witchcraft is the same word for Pharmacy

    Psalm 23:4-6 Yea, though I walk through the valley of death

    (maybe), I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 6: Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. However, one needs to be in no hurry to leave your family and friends behind! Get well Mike!!! Hal

    Staff and rod to fight off the wolves I assume?
  • Ilikelight on Psalms 23:4
    If then no staff..if then no rod..all of my days..are set before me..no trial or even all they of the world would be set against ...for he who is in me..is greater..than than this world..and if i live..ill life to love..another day..if i die..greater is he...for death is overcome..and youll be born again. and this world..is by no means a easy world but by the light of holy spirit..it shines such a light unto You ..and we boldly go.. to carry that light.. because its the only thing that will get you through. its from where you are from and walks with you.. its who sent Jesus.. and from where the wind cometh.. and you are greater..even more than all the things made by man..because you are the light and jewel And a temple.. and home of the holy spirit.. for ever..

  • Mrs. Anderson on Psalms 23:4
    Shadows can seem, feel and appear to be very real. For most of us growing up if we saw our shadow in the dark it would scare us! For in the dark is only when shadows appear! Therefore our greatest fear is not will I have to walk through the valley of the shadow of death but when my turn comes and it will or already has , Will I We trust God in our darkest hour, will we trust him to be with us when all has failed and their is no one to call upon, upon this earth...I feel as though many of us are, facing this shadow even as I type. But God is calling us to have faith in the darkest hour s of our lives......The world is a dark shadow! It reflects many images yet if we make a conscience concrete decision that it is only a shadow, then and only then can we say to the shadows of darkness I will not fear, for the Psalmist is guiding us to understand its just a shadow not real images at all! God will have the last say of all of this and as HIS children lets take faith in the REALITY that I WILL NOT FEAR, for thou art with me! Be Strong in the Lord!
