LETTERS: ‘God is not happy with us human beings’

Dear Editor, in reply to Bishop Tutai Pere's letter on Saturday, I am wondering if most of our pastors on the island know that this Covid 19 was brought in by God almighty, our loving Father in Heaven.

The way I saw this terrible disease around the world is our loving God is not happy with us human beings. Matthew 24:21,22 "For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. "And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened.

Revelation 7:1-3 “After these things I saw four Angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. Then I saw another angel ascending from the east having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea. saying "Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the tree till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads"

People cannot be vaccinated against their will. However due to their non-compliance, they could be forced to leave work, not admitted to school, prohibited from international and travel.

Thus the biggest job of the health department has always been and always will be to persuade the unprotected people to get vaccinated in three ways by:

1)Education -least effective, slow process

2) Fright-moderate-high (creates an instantaneous need)

3)Pressure - highly effective and fast (a scare that causes fear)

Choose you this day... As for me, I will obey the Lord!

My fellow believers in Christ Jesus our Lord, harden not your heart, listen to the voice of the Lord, speaking to the seven churches in Revelation Matthew 16:4 "A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah' And he left them and departed, Jonah 3:1-10 If we do the same, God will turn and relent, and turn away from his fierce anger, so that we may not perish?
