GOD is revealing TRUTH, don’t miss it. YOUR LIFE and YOUR CHILDREN’S LIVES DEPEND ON IT! I am so excited to see how GOD is speaking to so many of us, the same message, but different parts. I have to tell you there is so much information coming forward that NO ONE can keep up with it. I know that since GOD told me to leave my job, because of what was coming, I have done nothing all day and night, every day, 24/7 but work on this website and the owner’s website. Of course I do stop to eat now and then, sleep a little when my eyes or body give out. I have gone shopping a few times. I stop to clean the kitchen when we just run out of dishes. Other than that, I am on here. It is impossible for one person even to cover one part of what is happening completely. There is just too much.
I am pleased to find that others are posting on the OCCULT RITUALS connected with Masks. I have not even had time to look at the other aspects of this, like the lockdowns and the hand washing. Though I was aware they were also ritualistic. So here I am going to share the work of some brothers and sisters. I pray that you receive the truth with open hearts and minds. We are fighting for our lives not only in this world, but the world to come. WAKE UP! Take up your position and join the battle.
Even celebrities push occultism constantly. (See here.)
And quite frankly, many Christian churches have been infiltrated by practitioners of Kabbalah, which is a book of Jewish mysticism, magick spells, enchantments, man-made numerology and other esoteric and occult practices that the orthodox rabbis use in the course of their daily lives, and now teach Christian leaders to use, as well. (See here.)
So, with so many of the world’s “top tier” leaders pushing occultism – including those enemies of Christ who run the four hidden dynasties of politics, education, economics and religion— it should come as no surprise to you that the entire global coronavirus crisis is replete with occult symbology and ritual occult initiation themes.
Indeed, as you’ll see throughout the rest of this commentary, the entire manufactured coronavirus crisis is one giant, occult ritual from start to finish, divided up into four mini-rituals, each with the distinct occult purpose of initiation and transformation of the world and its people into a new global order.
So, let’s start by examining the four distinct, but interrelated, occult rituals that make up this massive global occult ritual initiation ceremony:
- Ritual Mask-Wearing
- Ritual Hand-Washing
- Ritual “Social Distancing”
- Ritual Lockdowns
In the course of examining these four occult rituals, I’ll do my best to explain to you how each one is part of an elaborate stage play designed to symbolically initiate the people of this world into their new positions in a new global order – a new order that rejects Jesus Christ and Christianity, and puts the people of this world under the ultimate control of a global elite whose god is the devil himself.
The Ritual Wearing of the Mask
Have you ever wondered why, in Revelation 17:5, Babylon is called “Mystery, Babylon”?
You already know that the word “Babylon” means “confusion.” But what does the word “mystery” mean? Here’s what the Strong’s Concordance tells us:
G3466 Musterion — From a derivative of muo (to shut the mouth); a secret or “mystery” (through the idea of silence imposed by initiation into religious rites)— mystery.
Don’t overlook that. The word “mystery” in the Bible has to do with shutting the mouth as one undergoes a secret religious initiation. Again, it’s: “the idea of silence, imposed by initiation into religious rites.”
Isn’t that interesting?
After all, at this point in time, 30 countries, including the United States, are now forcing their citizens to wear face masks over their mouths on a mandatory basis, ostensibly to help stop coronavirus infections.
This, even though numerous medical experts, including the Surgeon General of the United States, have openly stated that wearing masks has no beneficial effect whatsoever against coronavirus.
What’s more, numerous medical experts have attested to the fact that face masks can even be dangerous to one’s health in that they curtail clear thinking (and even consciousness)by trapping carbon dioxide in the chamber of the mask, forcing you to re-breathe it over and over, thus depleting your blood of fresh air and the life-giving oxygen component it contains.
So why are the powers-that-be, globally, forcing their citizens to wear these face masks, if the masks simply don’t work against coronavirus, and might very well be dangerous to your health? The answer might surprise you:
Masking has traditionally played a very important role in occult rituals.
Among other things, the wearing of the mask over one’s mouth is a token of submission…a gesture of your willingness to be subject to others who are not your usual Sovereign.
But there’s more. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, mask-wearing is:
“A form of disguise or concealment usually worn over or in front of the face to hide the identity of a person and by its own features to establish another being.”
In other words, the wearing of a mask represents an occult transformation— a human alchemy, if you will — from one role to another. From one manner of being, to another. Indeed, in this case, from individual sovereign under God to collective subject under the children of the devil.
You see, the masking ritual is specifically designed to reverse the order of hierarchy set in place by God Himself. In the hierarchy of your heavenly Father, you are a sovereign representative of His Word on this earth. And your job is to speak His Word, on His Sovereign behalf to others.
In other words, He’s the King, you’re a Prince of His kingdom, and your job is to carry His Word to others, so they too can get on board with it and return to the Father eternally, through Jesus Christ. As it’s written regarding our primary duty as Christians:
II Timothy 4:2 — Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
In short, your job is to teach your Father’s Word. And you must be ready and willing to do so at all times (i.e., “be instant, in season and out of season”).
As such, you must always remain unmasked, because your job — in your earthly role as one of His faithful representatives — is to speak and explain His Word to others. And to do so, you must open your mouth. You cannot be muzzled. You cannot be masked.
Wearing the mask is a powerful occult symbol indicating your submission to another power other than the Creator God who gave you the direct commission to preach His Word to the world:
Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Matthew 28:19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
So, in God’s hierarchy, you’re a sovereign representative of His Word on this earth. And your job is to spread that Word to as many others as possible in the course of your adult lifetime. But in the hierarchy of the ritualists, it’s quite the reverse:
The entire point of occult ritual mask-wearing is to hammer home to your subconsciousness — until it becomes completely true in your daily life — the idea that things are no longer the same, and will never be the same again.
It’s an initiation into a new order. But it’s also a transformation of the self into a new position in that new order.
Under the sway of the occult ritualist, you, being mouth-masked, are no longer the person you used to be. You’re no longer a designated mouthpiece of God on this earth. You’re suddenly demoted and re-assigned to the position of obedient subject.
Symbolically, you become a serf in the new order. That’s your new role…your new identity… as represented by the wearing of mask.
The wearing of the mask is simply part of the initiation ritual used to visually and psychologically signal your consent to this new arrangement. Yes, by wearing the mask, you’re signaling your consent to accept a new and very different position in a new global order.
Instead of being a sovereign representative of the Most High God and His Word on this earth, in essence, you agree to become a willing subject — a slave— to the very enemies of God and His Christ. Masked, you’re now willingly serving the enemy’s purposes, and no longer God’s.
When you obediently put the mask over your mouth, you’re symbolically saying to the ritualists, “I admit my words no longer have any purpose or relevance in this life. My sole purpose now is obedience to your words and commands.”
And in raising themselves to the position of your new sovereign, and muzzling you like a dogin the process, they alchemically create a newyou in a newrole under new rulers. That’s the alchemical transformational change involved in the ritual.
They’re quite literally attempting to take the place of God in your life, and make you their willing subject. They’re becoming your instead-of-Christ. Your antichrist.
And by placing the mask on your face, you’re becoming their unwitting faithful servant. You’re being ritually initiated into the new order. You may not realize it. But in occult magic, the victim doesn’t have to be knowledgeable of the meaning behind what he or she is being told to do. The performance of the ritual itself – on demand — is all that matters.
So, who, exactly, is doing this to us?
1 John 2:18 — Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
You didn’t think these “many antichrists” would sit around on their hands all day, doing nothing, in the final days of this flesh earth age while they’re waiting on the return of their father the devil in his role as the false messiah, did you?
Naturally, they’re softening things up for their god – Satan — before he gets here. They’re using ceremonial occult ritual magic, on a global scale, to capture the entire world in their dragnet.
By wearing the mask, you’re being symbolically and alchemically transformed — “reborn”— into their new global system, through occult ritual programming.
More from the Encyclopedia Britannica on ritual mask-wearing:
“The person who wears the mask is also considered to be in direct association withthe mask’s spirit force and is consequently exposed to like personal danger of being affected by it.
…Upon donning the mask, the wearer sometimes undergoes a psychic change, and, as in a trance, assumes the spirit character depicted by the mask.”
Well, folks, the antichrist – the instead-of-Christ — is the “spirit force” of the maskwe’re talking about. You get that, don’t you? He’s the spirit behind the powers-that-be who are working to pull off this global coup.
And it’s the powers-that-be who have masked, muzzled and demoted you to your new status of slave, on the behalf of their god, the devil himself.
The mask-wearing ritual is designed to posses you with the spirit of subservience to your new overlords, who are the “many antichrists” of 1 John 2:18.
And it sets you up to do the same when the antichrist arrives and offers his actual “mark,” which we’ll examine at the end of this commentary.
If you don’t think wearing the mask quite literally changes people, as the Encyclopedia Britannica states in the quote above, think about all of the masked “Karens” you’ve seen online videos of, wildly chasing people who aren’t wearing masks down the road, publicly berating them for not wearing masks, and screaming at them that there’s “blood on their hands” for not masking up like good little boys and girls always should.
Here’s one, for example, in which the “Karens” are all big, burly, mask-wearing males, quite literally shoving an elderly gentleman out of a store for not wearing a mask:
Through the wearing of the mask, the occult ritualists have created an army of “Karens” – programmed automatons who take the ritual so seriously that they feel personally and physically threatened when you don’t. And they don’t mind telling you so. Often vigorously.
I need to interject here that I am not the author of this particular article and I don’t speak for the author. I don’t follow social media so I was not aware of the MEME that the name Karen has become. Here is a link that explains that. Link:How “Karen” became a symbol of racism/
The Encyclopedia Britannica goes on to say about the masking ritual:
“Usually, however, the wearer skillfully becomes a ‘partner’ of the character he is impersonating, giving to the mask not only an important spark of vitality by the light flashing from his own eyes but also bringing it alive by his movements and poses.”
In other words, in the end, the mask becomes part of the very identity of those who wear it. The occult transition becomes complete. The “new you” is born from the ritual.
The Encyclopedia Britannica further states:
“But often the wearer [of the mask] seems to become psychologically one with the character he is helping to create. He seems to become an automaton, without his own will, which has become subservient to that of the personage of the mask.”
You might want to think about those dozens of online videos showing fully-masked hospital nurses and hospital workers participating in elaborately choreographed Tik-Tok dance videos, while simultaneously thousands of hapless coronavirus victims are supposedly dying cruel deaths and being stacked up like cord wood in those very same hospitals.
Yes, a veritable masked dance of death, just like you see in the movies. And we all know who Mr. Death is, don’t we?
Revelation 6:8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
What’s more, by adding dance to the mask-wearing, the new slaves show their willingness to entertain their captors– to become little more than flesh play-sports to them — just as the Babylonian soldiers of old tried to force the Israelite captives to entertain them with music. As it’s written:
Psalm 137:1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
Psalm 137:2 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
Psalm 137:3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.
Psalm 137:4How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?
As you can see, the Israelites of old refused to entertain their captors…refused to provide the requested mirth…asking amongst themselves, “How can we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?”
But unlike the time of the Babylon captivity, today’s coup against God’s People, and today’s ongoing overthrow thereof, is, so far, being accomplished without conventional warfare.
So, the people, by-and-large, don’t even realize the depth and severity of the attempted coup against them, because it’s being accomplished almost solely through occult ritual deception. Which is why God’s Word warns us that there will be times we can’t even trust our own neighbors. As it’s written:
Jeremiah 9:4 Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders.
Jeremiah 9:5 And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.
Jeremiah 9:6 Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the Lord.
First, the powers-that-be deceive your neighbors into putting on the mask. Then your neighbors, thinking they’re doing right, work to push you into doing the same, using peer pressure and “virtue signaling.”
And if you refuse to be deceived, as they are, they’ll slander you, turn against you, and work to supplant you.
Does this sound at all familiar to you?
Tell me again, how many cities and states now have highly-publicized “snitch lines”in which your neighbors can call up and report you for not wearing a mask? One U.S. city alone is said to have registered an astonishing 200,000 “tip-off” calls on their snitch line in a single week.
Yes, it’s just an updated version of what the book of Jeremiah tells us has happened before. Neighbor being turned against neighbor. In this case, over their failure to perform a prescribed ritual.
Like the old movie, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, your own neighbors end up as mind-controlled “pod people” who want nothing more than to drag you into the interconnected pod hive with themselves and all of the other victims of mind-control, happily betraying you (and your God-given freedom and position) in the process.
But the mask-wearing has another occult meaning, as well, which we’ve only lightly touched on. As the Coronacircus.com website states about the wearing of the masks:
“To better understand the symbolism of wearing the mask, try typing the word ‘censorship’into Google Images and see what kind of illustration predominantly comes up. Here’s a sampling of what you’ll find:
That’s also why our figurehead leaders are ostensibly refusing to “mask up”: We are the one’s being gagged, not them.
These unconscious associations are extremely strong. Gags are a symbol of subservience and domination; they are deeply humiliating (and indeed they are popular in BDSM sexual bondage practices).
That is why people resist them so much; that is also why they are currently being made mandatory the world over. There is little doubt the unproductive barbarians behind this circus are enjoying themselves; they believe they are being subtle.”
Ah, yes. Subtle like the serpent. Coronacircus.com continues by pointing out:
This also involves imposing their symbols on us. The esoteric interpretation of the mandatory gagging ties directly into the symbology of silence that is as old as occultism itself.”
And here’s one little thing in particular they’d love you to keep silent about:
Yes, they even admit right on the box holding the face masks that they don’t work for coronavirus.
So why would they force you to wear them under penalty of law? Because, in the grand scheme of things, wearing the mask has nothing to do with coronavirus. It has to do with initiating you into the new global order, and your new place within it.
Finally, as the occult website, Occult-World.com, states about the wearing of masks:
“…Ancient peoples understood well the power of the mask. Evidence of mask-wearing in prehistoric societies shows that masks may have been intended to transform the wearer magically.
“… The mask has been revered as a sacred object of power, a living thing that either has its own persona or represents the persona of another being. It enables the wearer magically to bring to life, and even become, the persona or spirit being represented by the mask.
“…The mask is a mediator between the ego and archetype, the mundane [i.e., worldly] and the supernatural,the sacred and the comic. It connects the present to the past, the individual to the entire collective of race, culture, country—and humanity.”
I submit that the past they are connecting us with is the TOWER of BABEL. The FIRST time that Satan built a KINGDOM that encompassed the whole world. A humanistic DICTATORSHIP where humans had no rights and life was not honored or respected. Where a brick that was marked to be part of the TOWER had more value in the eyes of the people than a life of one who was helping to build the tower.
“And behold these ascended and others descended the whole day; and if a brick should fall from their hands and get broken, they would all weep over it, and if a man fell and died, none of them would look at him.” Jasher 9:28
In other words, mask-wearing is symbolic of the silent acceptance of humanistic one-worldism under Satan. What might that eventually look like? How about this:
As you can now see, there’s much, much more to the wearing of masks than what we’ve been led to believe. Mask-wearing is a very occultic phenomena, and always has been. Literally for thousands of years.
Indeed, it’s a striking example of musterion – a secret religious initiation having to do with silence being imposed by shutting the mouth. Again, according to the Strong’s Concordance, the word “Mystery” from the title “Mystery, Babylon,” consists of “the idea of silence, imposed by initiationinto religious rites.”
Surely, by now, you understand that the mask-wearing has nothing to do with coronavirus, but instead, with the filthy pagan and occult beliefs of our present overlords who are seeking to make us their willing slaves through psychological programming, aka occult ritual programming.
Hey, don’t be surprised. This is what occultists do. Like the story of the lady who rescues the hapless snake, only to have it bite her later. But when she asks the snake “Why did you bite me?” the snake simply replies, “Because I’m a snake, lady. That’s what we do.”
In making you wear the mask, the powers-that-be are initiating you into their new order. They’re demoting you from your position as a sovereign representative on earth to the Most High God, to your new position as a dependent slave to their system, aka, their “Mystery, Babylon,”which could very simply be translated: silent confusion.
Can the power of this occult ritual be stopped? Yes, it can. And quite easily, for any Christian. As a Christian, you can simply opt-out of the ritual. Stop participating. Withdraw your consent!
Ritual Daily Hand Washings
We’ve now discovered that the global mask-wearing phenomena is part of an occult initiation ritual designed to usher the initiate into a new paradigm – a new position in a new global order. The mask itself signals one’s consent to the change, and symbolizes loss of one’s previous sovereign position as a faithful Christian carrying forth God’s Word.
So, what about the other rituals they’ve imposed upon us, such as the daily ritual washing of hands?
Perhaps you’ve dutifully washed your hands eight or 10 times a day now, for months on end, thinking it’s a way to keep “the virus” from infecting you. And yes, there’s indeed some truth to the idea of washing one’s hands to help prevent the spread of an infectious microorganism.
But… in reality, for the purposes of occult ritual initiation, the powers-that-be have you symbolically washing your hands of your duties to Christ Himself.
To the occultists, this forced occult ritual washing of the hands reverses Pilate’s public handwashing ritual, which, for the last 2,000 years, has put the onus for Christ’s death on the hands of the ritualists themselves, and absolved Christ (and the Romans) of all guilt:
Matthew 27:24 — When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
Pilate performed a ritual washing of his hands in front of all of the people of Israel as a means of placing the responsibility for the Lord’s death directly on the heads of those who made sure He would be crucified.
Now, the powers-that-be in this day-and-age – who are descendants of those very same earthly powers who slew Christ on that cross at Calvary — have you working each day, in occult symbolic ritual, to reverse the impact of Pilate’s original ritual hand-washing, as well as his pronouncement of Christ’s innocence.
“Wash your hands,” the powers-that-be tell you every single day on the nightly news. “Spend at least 30 seconds on each finger of your hands, and on your palms and the back of your hands. Do this repeatedly throughout the day if you want to live.”
So, your acceptance of the ritual mask-wearing alchemically begins creating the “new you” – the initiated servant moving from his old position into the new. And your ritual washing of hands has you symbolically (albeit unconsciously) washing away your old position – your old Master and his prescribed ways — in anticipation of your new master and his.
So, you are in actuality, washing away your alignment with Christ which provides your salvation. Which means you are rejecting the gift of salvation, and aligning yourself with Satan, accepting the punishment due to him.
It’s that simple. Hand washing is the occult ritualistic symbol of rejection.
When you fall for the hand-washing ritual, you’re symbolically washing away your old life, under Christ, in willing acceptance of your new life under the new order of the enemy and his “many antichrists” who have been pulling off this coup from the start.
The “Social Distancing” Ritual
So if the masking ritual signals one’s consent to change, and symbolizes loss of one’s previous sovereign position as a faithful Christian carrying forth God’s Word, and the hand-washing ritual symbolizes the washing away of the old Christian order so the new order can be ushered in, what does the “social distancing” ritual signify?
This one’s almost too easy to spot: Right off the bat, the use of the magical number six – as in six feet apart — should set your Spidey senses on edge, meaning, of course, your God-given discernment.
After all, there’s no more widely used occult number in the world than the number “six.” As you know, the antichrist’s very number is “six hundred, three score and six,” or 6-6-6.
The powers-that-be assure us that if we’ll all walk six feet apart, we won’t catch coronavirus. Do you really need me to explain why that’s a bunch of hogwash?
Are you not aware that there are already MILLIONS of viruses in every breath of air you take? No matter where you walk, those viruses are there – somewhere between 1.6 million to 40 million viruses in every cubic meter of air we pass through as we walk.
So, no matter how far apart from others you walk, those viruses are there. You can’t escape them, except perhaps in a full-blown Hazmat suit with an air tank that you’d need to leave running 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
So, much like mask-wearing, social distancing is a lie.It cannot possibly work. Yet we’re being forced to participate in it. But why would they do so? And if it can’t really help against viruses, what’s it’s occult purpose? Well, try this on for size:
Each of us are individual, but integral, parts of the many-membered body of Christ. We don’t just walk with Christ. True Christians walk in Christ.
Colossians 2:6-7 Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.
But symbolically speaking, the ritual of “social distancing” — at the magical “six feet” apart – is the part of the initiation ritual that SEPARATES YOU from Christ.
Rather than walking in Him, as His personal representative on this earth, you’re now symbolically and ritualistically separated from Him. Like Kevin Bacon and his Six Degrees of Separation.
Six feet from the Father. Six feet from the Son. Six feet from the Holy Spirit. Yes, that’s 6-6-6.
The occult ramifications are undeniable.
But that’s not all: Each individual Christian must remain six feet away from all other Christians. Do you understand what the powers-that-be are doing, ritualistically and symbolically?
Let me explain it: As a member of the Body of Christ, you’re supposed to be an integral part of the “whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth…” As it’s written:
Ephesians 4:16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
The term “fitly joined together”in the above verse means “joined, joint-to-joint” or “close-jointed.” The word “compacted” in the above verse means “united.”
In other words, Christians are supposed to come together,sinew-to-sinew and joint-to-joint,tightly united in the Body of Christ. And through preaching His Word, we’re to help bring others into the tightly-knit body to help the body grow.
But the occult ritual initiation rule of six feet of separation symbolically neutralizes this command. (Remember, this is a form of occult magic. Symbols are everything in occult magic.)
It puts arbitrary man-made distance between those who are supposed to have no distance at all between them. It rips the metaphorical body of Christ apart at the seams, symbolically speaking. It separates the “joints and sinews” that are supposed to be so tightly knit together.
But as a well-studied and faithful Christian, you know there’s absolutely nothing on this earth that can separate you from the love of Christ (Romans 8:35-39). And that especially includes some stupid occult ritual.
Nevertheless, ritual occult magic is what the powers-that-be do. They glory in it. Their Kabbalah is full of it. It’s what they’ve done for thousands of years. In other words, it’s what they sincerely believe in. And… it’s what they want us to buy into without critical thought.
Centuries ago, they brought their occult ritual Kabbalistic magic all of the way back from Babylon. Now they’ve opened the ancient books. And they’re unleashing the rituals in the final days of this flesh earth age.
And the worst part is this: It’s actually working. People are falling for it because of the sheer depth and breadth of the deception. And all of this over a virus with a 98.5% survival rate! Talk about putting people into a global trance!
In the end, the ritual of forced “social distancing” is designed to symbolically negate or neutralize God’s Word in a multitude of ways:
- By eliminating fellowship between believers…
- By stopping church services worldwide…
- By causing faithful church pastors to be cited or even arrested for holding church services…
- By causing faithful congregants to be cited or even arrested for attending church services…
- By symbolically tearing apart the mystical and metaphorical Body of Christ, which is supposed to be “fitly joined together and compacted.”
In Amos 3:3, the prophet asks a very simple question:
Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
Well, two Christians can’t “walk together” if the powers-that-be can force them to walk six feet apart. We’re building a many-membered body, folks. A living temple of Christ, with each brick (we are not bricks!! We are STONES! Bricks are an abomination to GOD. That was one of the offenses of the TOWER of BABEL, building with bricks, when GOD commands us to build with STONE. Stones are MADE BY GOD and cannot be replicated. Bricks are made of clay by man and they are all the same.) pressed up against the next like the sinews running through your physical body. As it’s written:
1 Peter 2:5Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
But you can’t put together a many-membered body – a living temple of God on earth — if you can’t press the
bricks(STONES)up close to each other in the building process. You know what happens when there are gaps in the seams between the bricks(STONES): It gives the “rats” an easy way to get into the temple. GODS TEMPLE CANNOT, MUST NOT, WILL NOT EVER BE BUILT OF BRICKS! I am going to interject an article here just to demonstrate.
At the very beginning of the Bible, in the eleventh chapter of Genesis, we have this description of the Tower of Babel:
While men were migrating eastward, they discovered a valley in the land of Sennaar and settled there. They said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and bake them.” They used bricks for stone and bitumen for mortar. They then said, “Let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves lest we be scattered all over the earth.” [Genesis 11:2-4]
Many people, yours truly included, believe that the Tower of Babel is the perfect symbol of secular society. By “secular society” I mean a world that sets itself up in arrogant opposition to the will of God.
Note that the Tower of Babel was constructed of bricks. Bricks have four characteristics.
First, they are unnatural and artificial. You won’t find a brick occurring in nature.
Second, they are identical and uniform. It’s not easy to distinguish one brick from another.
Third, they are functionally undifferentiated and interchangeable. A brick can serve equally well anywhere in a wall.
Fourth, they are all but worthless. So what if you lose a brick. There are hundreds more just like it.
What could be more unnatural and artificial than a society that rejects God? In such a state, citizens will be made to conform to uniform standards and will lose their individuality. Their work will be reduced to interchangeable roles. And, because they have lost all uniqueness, they will become utterly worthless.
Now, listen to what Saint Paul has to say in his Second Letter to the Corinthians:
If then any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: the former things have passed away; behold, they are made new! [2 Corinthians 5:17]
In opposition to the Tower of Babel, we have a new creation. This is how Saint Peter describes this new creation:
Draw near to him [viz. Christ], a living stone, rejected indeed by men but chosen and honored by God. Be you yourselves as living stones, built thereon into a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. [1 Peter 2:4-5]
There you have it. Bravely standing against secular society, the Tower of Babel, built of bricks, we have a new creation, the Church, a temple built of living stones.
Living stones have four characteristics.
First, living stones are not just natural, but supernatural.
Second, they are utterly unique. No two are exactly alike.
Third, they are irreplaceable. A stone that occupies a particular place in a wall can fit nowhere else. Fourth, they are extremely precious.
What could be more supernatural than a society in which Christ dwells? In the eyes of Jesus, every human being is utterly unique and unrepeatable. What two human beings are exactly alike? In the Church, every person is irreplaceable, because each one of us has a mission no one else can fulfill. Finally, in the heart of Christ, every human being is precious, because every one of us is made in the image and likeness of God. Each one of us, therefore, has infinite value.
The question is this: Which would I rather be—a brick in secular society or a living stone in the temple of the Church? In the former edifice, we lose our identity. In the latter, we become who we are meant to be. C.S. Lewis puts it this way. In his book The Screwtape Letters, he writes of God’s plan for His human creatures:
[He] sets an absurd value on the distinctness of every one of them. When He talks of their losing their selves, He means only abandoning the clamour of self-will; once they have done that, He really gives them back all their personality, and boasts…that when they are wholly His they will be more themselves than ever. [Letter XIII]
Only in a secular society—where men and women, husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, are interchangeable—only in such a society can “same-sex marriage” and Facebook’s fifty-eight genders be even remotely considered as possibilities. In the Church, however, where men and women, husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, are irreplaceable, marriage as anything other than one man and one woman for life is, to use a word from the movie The Princess Bride, “inconceivable.”
Unnatural bricks versus supernatural stones. Secular society versus the Kingdom of God. Interchangeable cogs versus irreplaceable persons. Now there’s something to ponder! Bricks vs. stones. I’m not talking about building a house. I’m talking about building a future.
 I cannot help but think of the evil city on the planet Camazotz, described in Madeleine L’Engle’s young adult classic A Wrinkle in Time. Here even children are required to bounce their balls simultaneously in precise rhythm.
 Recall the futuristic society depicted by Lois Lowry in her book The Giver. This brave new world at first appears to be quite utopian, but we soon learn that euthanasia and infanticide are essential features of a colorless world.
Back to the original article:
The bottom line is that the “social distancing” ritual is symbolically designed to physically and spiritually limit the impact of Christianity on this earth, and put a halt to the growth of the many-membered Body of Christ in the final days of this flesh earth age. It’s a very clever ritual.
But here’s one thing the powers-that-be have overlooked: “What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder” (Matthew 19:6).
God has been putting together His many-membered body in Christ for some 2,000 years now. And we’ve all worked hard to help build it further.
So that’s our command for these times: “What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”
And we follow that command by exposing the occult rituals of the powers-that-be. We stop participating in the global rituals and their components. And we resume our work for the Lord. We walk together, in Christ, tightly knit. Never six feet apart, physically or spiritually.
And whatever you do, don’t let the “Karens” of this world get your goat on “social distancing,” either.
It’s not their business where, or how, you walk your walk in the Lord. But always know that these thoroughly addled, out-of-work hall monitors are out there, and they despise you for your choice of not consenting to the new order:
The Ritual of Lockdowns and “Social Isolation”
“Stay home. Stay safe. Save lives.”
That’s what we’re being told, anyway. Yet a recent study of NY area hospitals demonstrates that a whopping 66% of all coronavirus hospitalizations have been among people who wore masks, washed their hands, practiced six feet of separation, and stayed home.
In other words, the vast majority of the hospitalizations were among people who followed the rules, prompting the Daily Mail to ask in a headline news article, “Does lockdown even work?”
And if lockdowns don’t work, then why on God’s green earth are our global overlords making us “stay at home”? From an occult point-of-view, there’s an answer:
Lockdowns are little more than social isolation rituals, performed for the purpose of “purifying” the initiate so he can enter the new order unimpeded by things of the past no longer considered, by the powers-that-be, to be beneficial to the initiate.
There are basically four stages to an isolation ritual:
Stage 1: Isolation for purification (you’re cut off from the normal, and thrust into a “new normal” that’s completely different than your past life)
Stage 2: Surrender to the “new normal.” This often involves being given a token gift (think “stimulus check”) leading the initiate believe he’s being well-taken care of by his new overlords, so there’s no need to rebel against the new order one is being initiated into.
Stage 3: Sacrifice. No gift can be given without something being taken. In this case, your dignity…your sovereign independence…your voice…your individual power on this earth as a representative of the Word of the Most High God – all of these things, and more, are being taken from you in exchange for the cold “comfort” of a new way in a new world.
Stage 4: Submission. Think: Mandatory vaccines. Social tracing. The willing acceptance of new rules for a new order.
Once again, the idea is that the “new person” being initiated into the “new order” needs to be psychologically, if not physically, purged of the old way, before gradually being initiated into the new way.
At the website AvoidtheMark.com, an article on initiation rituals states:
“The isolation stage of the ritual is for purification. In this stage, the initiate is separated from the mundane. Did you know that mundane literally means “of the world?”
The initiate is largely removed from the otherwise familiar persons, places and things that they’re used to, in order to be “cleared” of them.
An initiate is forced to become detached and insulated, purged and “purified.”
An essential element of this separation from one’s typical environment is the suspension of the normal rules of living that one is used to; the normal way is no more.
Most of the initiate’s senses will become commanded and regulated at this time. In other words, the majority of what the initiate sees, hears, smells, touches and tastes, is deliberately controlled.
… With nowhere else to go except the places that we’re “allowed,” the insulated, isolated, initiated may be forced to confront his or her own reflection and inner shadows that have been ignored or buried somewhere deep beneath the average day-to-day.
…Just as they involve surrender, initiation rituals also involve sacrifice; both the tangible that can be held in the hand, and the intangible, such as behaviors, must be given up by requirement.
After all, for something to be “given,” something must also be taken; a token of submission, an ounce of blood; a pound of clay to be remolded.
Whether dramatically overt or deceitfully subtle, the ritual reinterprets reality; a new definition of reality is given. Training in the form of new behaviors and knowledge, including myths and codes are introduced.
Things necessary for new members to function properly in the new version of society they’re being inducted into are all imbued during this time. Repetition is typical, as it’s use helps hammer home the spell on the initiates.”
Just think about it: What they’re describing is the implementation of the “new normal.”
But you have to lose the “old normal” first, in order to be initiated into the “new normal.” Hence the lockdowns…loss of work…travel restrictions…business restrictions…food shortages…and much, much more.
In the end, the “new normal” becomes the norm, and the old ways are gradually forgotten. New mythologies are created for the new world, by our new masters.
And the “new you” – the transformed you – is birthed from the isolation.
So, there you have it. The world today is undergoing a four-part occult ritual initiation and transformation ceremony – largely conducted through symbology, as virtually all occult rituals are – and designed to bring everyone, willingly and subserviently, into the new global order.
The global occult ritual of mask-wearing signals your consent to your new, subservient position, under your new masters, and the loss of your position as a vocal representative of, or mouthpiece for, the Word of God on this earth.
The global occult ritual of handwashing represents the washing away of the old order (i.e., the Christian Order you once belonged to), so a new order can be ushered in and firmly established.
The global occult ritual of six feet of “social distancing” symbolizes the breaking apart of the Body of Christ on earth, so it no longer functions as a stable and cohesive unit.
The global occult ritual of lockdowns symbolize isolation from everything normal so you can be “purified” from your old ways…surrender your former status to the new order…sacrifice your very self to the new order…and finally, willingly submit to the new order through obedience to it. And this will go on until the “new you” evolves like a Phoenix from the drama and trauma, straight into the waiting arms of Satan himself, ultimately. (Do you see now why our heavenly Father reduced the tribulation from seven years to five months, “for the elect’s sake”?)
All told, it’s an astonishing sight to behold.
The whole thing is being accomplished through a massive, global, theater-like stage play replete with occult rituals that virtually everyone, with the exception of God’s elect, are willingly participating in, ignorant of their true meaning and ultimate purpose.
The Mark of the Beast
All told, these ongoing occult initiation rituals – the wearing of masks…the washing of hands…the six feet of separation…the lockdowns — are the direct precursor, if you will, to accepting the Mark of the Beast.
Now, the Bible tells us that the Mark of the Beast is placed in the forehead and on the right hand (Revelation 13:16-17) of those who willingly take it.
I’ve often asked myself how so many people – the entire world, actually, with the exception of God’s elect — could possibly take the Mark of the Beast, willingly, since it’s quite literally the most well-known occultic “mark” the world has ever known.
After all, far more people know about the Mark of the Beast, than, say, other “marks” such as the Scarlet Letter (a letter “A” branded in red on the flesh of an adulteress), or the Yellow Star the Jews were forced to wear on their clothing in Nazi Germany.
But what if the infamous Mark of the Beast is not a visible mark, at all? Not a vaccine. Not a tattoo. Not a “quantum dot.” Not a scarred brand on seared human flesh. But instead, an invisible, spiritual mark?
Indeed, what if the Mark of the Beast is so seemingly innocuous in nature, one can quite easily be deceived into taking it, through occult ritual magick initiation and transformation, like we’re seeing take place today on a global basis?
The “mark” in the forehead simply means one mentally buys into the new system they’re being initiated into. And the “mark” in the right hand simply means one begins working for the new system…becoming a full and willing participant in it.
In other words, what if the Mark of the Beast on the right hand and in the forehead simply means the people buy into the new system, hand-and-mind?
Symbolically speaking, first the initiate willingly believes the deceptive story being promulgated by the powers-that-be (i.e., keep in mind that belief is a function of the mind/forehead), and then the initiate willingly and earnestly participates in the occult initiation and programming (i.e., begins wearing masks…washing hands…social distancing…locking down).
Voila! You now belong to the powers-that-be, hand-and-mind. They’ve captured you with a lie, and you don’t even realize it. In this case, it’s the coronavirus lie.
They’ve got you dancing to their tune. And that’s precisely what the Mark of the Beast accomplishes, when Satan gets here: Mental and emotional acceptance of the Satanic “Mystery, Babylon” system by the people of the world. And willingness – even eagerness – to work within that Satanic system, to its benefit. That’s your “mark.” As it’s written:
Revelation 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
The only difference at this point is that Satan is not yet physically here to deceive people with his miracles into joining his global beast system and installing him as its god.
But his henchmen are here, and they’re softening up the world with these global occult ritual initiations, in preparation for the time when their father the devil finally arrives in his splendorous role as the false messiah, and offers the “mark” in much the same way its precursor is being offered to us today.
That’s why I say this occult global ritual initiation/transformation is nothing less than a sneak peak at the Mark of the Beast — a global dress rehearsal for it, if you will.
The beast commanded the ritual initiation of the people of this earth, and literally billions of people worldwide fell into stride and unwittingly (yet quite willingly) participated, hand-and-mind, in their ritual.
Think about it. Virtually the entire world – with the exception of God’s elect — rallied around a singular global banner that was emblazoned everywhere. And that banner read:
Folks, when Satan finally arrives in his role as the false messiah, that’s exactly what the Mark of the Beast is going to be like: The whole world coming together as one, and then going to work for the system, under its new leader.
The story you’ll be asked to believe – the lie they’ll be promulgating — is this: “Jesus is here.” But as the Scripture warns:
Mark 13:21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
Mark 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
Mark 13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
If, at that time, you believe the blatant lie that Christ is here, when the Scripture tells you the exact opposite, you’ve taken (rather, you’ve been taken-in by) the first part of the Mark of the Beast, i.e., the mark in your forehead, which represents your belief.
You’ve believed the lie with your mind, just as people today have been completely taken in by the coronavirus lie – the lie that a virus with a 98.5% survival rate constitutes a “global pandemic” through which we must give up all of our liberties and freedoms.
As it’s written of that soon-coming time when Satan is on this earth in his role as the false messiah:
2 Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2 Thessalonians 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Then, when you begin working fervently for the new system, implementing the changes in your life that will be required by its global leader in his role as the god of this earth, you’ve taken the second part of the Mark, i.e., the mark in your right hand, which, Biblically-speaking, is your hand of power and the hand through which you strike an agreement with others.
You’ve embraced the new system with a hand-clasp, just as literally billions of folks around the globe, today, are enthusiastically (yet unwittingly) embracing the ritual occult mask-wearing, hand-washing, six feet of separation, and lockdowns imposed on them by their new global masters.
In short, it’s my belief that what we’re seeing today is a global dry run for when Satan finally gets here, and deceives the world into accepting the true Mark of the Beast.
The short, 12-minute video below, titled “The Characteristics of an Initiation Ritual,” synopsizes some of the most pertinent points I’ve tried to explain in this commentary. It’s well worth the listen:
The bottom line is this: You can choose to become another brick in the wall of this fledgling global order they’re trying so desperately to usher in (and which, I believe, will ultimately fail, based on Daniel 11:14).
Or, you can choose to remain a living stone in the Temple of the Most High God (I Peter 2:5), and stand firm in your purpose as a vessel through which His Word is transmitted to others. That is your eternal destiny, IF you’re not talked out of it through deception.
Choose very wisely.

‘I would insist that everybody out in public be wearing that mask’ June 26, 2020 – Joe Biden
During an interview on Thursday with CBS Pittsburgh affiliate KDKA, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden admitted he’d take executive action to force Americans to wear coronavirus face masks. Standing eight feet away and both wearing masks, CBS’ Ken Rice asked Biden what he’d do to help stop the spread of the virus if elected president. Joe answered, “I would go back to making sure that everybody had masks, that you had PPE lined up.” “The one thing we do know is these masks make a gigantic difference,” he continued. “I would insist that everybody out in public be wearing that mask. Anyone to reopen would have to make sure that they walked into a business that had masks.” Rice then asked Biden if he’d “use his federal leverage to mandate” citizens wear masks. “Yes, I would. From an executive standpoint, yes, I would,” Creepy Joe responded. “So, you would, in effect, mandate the wearing of masks?” Rice persisted, with Biden answering, “I would do everything possible to make it required that people had to wear masks in public.” The former vice president also said it was “probable” that he’d be accepting his presidential nomination to an empty room if elected unless a vaccine was introduced or if the virus stopped spreading. While the left claims wearing a mask “is not political,” Joe Biden clearly thinks it is and he’s using it as a platform in the 2020 election. https://www.infowars.com/red-alert-if-elected-joe-biden-will-sign-mandatorymask-executive-order/ This video has been censored.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Sunday that the country is “long overdue” for a national mask-wearing mandate to combat the novel coronavirus. Asked whether it was time to “mandate the wearing of masks across the country,” she said, “I definitely — long overdue for that.” “My understanding is that the Centers for Disease Control has recommended the use of masks but not required it because they don’t want to offend the president,” said Ms. Pelosi on ABC’s “This Week.” “The president should be an example,” said Ms. Pelosi. “Real men wear masks. Be an example to the country and wear the mask. It’s not about protecting yourself, it’s about protecting others.” —–Original Message—–

When the President, the vice president and practically everyone around them doesn’t wear masks (even when 6 feet of social distance is clearly impossible to maintain) the message is clear: Masks aren’t necessary. Source: Why will no one in the White House wear a mask?
Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar noted Sunday that President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are in unique positions, given that they are both tested daily for COVID-19, as are the people around them.
Neither has tested positive for the coronavirus. The U.S. has recorded 2,597,891 cases of COVID-19 and 128,163 deaths, according to Worldometer.

Subject: Masks My Husband Patrick was certified in OSHA so he knows allot about this…😷😪
With masks now mandatory in AZ please read–This is from a person who is osha certified as a nurse in Gilbert, AZ and its very eye opening… Please read!! I am OSHA 10 & 30 certified. I know some of you are too. Now I don’t really know WHY OSHA hasn’t come forward and stopped the nonsense BUT I wanna cover 3 things • N95 masks and masks with exhale ports • surgical masks • filter or cloth masks. Okay so upon further inspection OSHA says some masks are okay and not okay in certain situations. If you’re working with fumes and aerosol chemicals and you give your employees the wrong masks and they get sick you can be sued. • N95 masks with exhale ports: are designed for CONTAMINATED environments. That means when you exhale through N95 the design is that you are exhaling into contamination. The exhale from N95 masks are vented to breathe straight out, without filtration. They don’t filter the air on the way out. They don’t need to. Conclusion: If you’re in Stewart’s and the guy with Covid has N95 mask with exhale ports, his covid breath is unfiltered and being exhaled into Stewart’s (because it was designed for already contaminated environments, it’s not filtering your air on the way out) • Surgical Masks: These masks were designed and approved for STERILE environments. The amount of particles and contaminants in the outside and indoor environments where people are, CLOG these masks very quickly. The moisture from your breath combined with the clogged mask with render it “useless” IF you come in contact with Covid and your mask traps it, you become a walking virus dispenser. Every time you put your mask on you are breathing the germs from EVERYWHERE you went. They should be changed or thrown out every “20-30 minutes in a non-sterile environment” Cloth masks: Today three people pointed to their masks as they walked by me entering Lowe’s. They said “ya gotta wear your mask BRO” I said very clearly “those masks don’t work bro, in fact they MAKE you sicker”. By now hopefully you all know CLOTH masks do not filter anything. You mean the American flag one my aunt made? Yes. The one with sunflowers that looks so cute? Yes. The bandanna, the cut up t-shirt, the scarf ALL of them offer NO FILTERING whatsoever. As you exhale you are ridding your lungs of contaminants and carbon dioxide. Cloth masks trap this carbon dioxide the best. It actually risks health. The moisture caught in these masks can become mildew ridden over night. Dry coughing, enhanced allergies, sore throat are all symptoms of a micro-mold in your mask. Ultimate Answer: N95 blows the virus into the air from a contaminated person. The surgical mask is not designed for the outside world and will not filter the virus upon inhaling through it. It’s filtration works on the exhale.
Cloth masks are WORSE than none. <<>> —–Original Message—–

“Lotta people are saying they’re getting headaches and stuff from wearing a mask that they’re requiring us to wear pretty much everywhere we go,” the man says. “And I’m gonna test oxygen level under a mask using an OSHA-approved air quality monitor that tests for oxygen levels, hazardous gas levels, LEL, CO, and H3H2, stuff like that.”
“OSHA requires 19.5% oxygen to work in a space. Look it up. Normal oxygen level is anywhere from 20 to 21.”
He then demonstrates the normal oxygen level without wearing a mask by placing the reading tube near his uncovered mouth, which gave a normal reading.
After watching this, how many children do you see wearing masks for long periods of time? Are they going to be required to wear a mask at school? Scientifically, the brain isn’t fully developed until the mid twenties. How will this affect their mental growth? Children need O2!!!! If you think about it. IF you have Covid and are wearing a mask? Then you are breathing the virus back into your system making it even harder for your body to heal! Just thinking out loud here. @LynnFynn3
So if masks make it so you don’t get the O2 you need, what happens when you wear the mask while you have covid? Decreased O2 sats are bad with covid, right??? @MdKnightBabe
Absolutely, because Covid already depletes the oxygen level in the blood. You can find videos explaining this process. Also, you would be breathing in the virus you just exhaled which puts overtime on your body fighting it.

More Warnings About Facemasks-–
“People, take off your masks before
you really make yourself sick!”
READ THIS FIRST BEFORE EVER WEARING A MASK (WARNING UPDATE)
When wearing a synthetic mask the person is filtering their air through a synthetic material that outgases the petrochemically derived constituents that most of which they are made. The masked individual is then breathing in those aerosolized toxic chemicals. Many of the sickest COVID patients already have various respiratory illnesses and/or chemical sensitivities, so putting a mask on them is the worst thing that can be done. The same applies to people who are relatively healthy but have E.I. syndrome or MCS.* *E.I. Syndrome = Environmental Illness Syndrome & MCS = Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.
Brand new products just taken out of a box are notorious for outgassing various chemical toxins. In the case of a new mask, which is placed right over the mouth and nose, these airborne chemicals go right into both airways. Therefore, patients stricken with the novel coronavirus ought to be spared from such a misguided practice. A chemical overwhelm can even trigger a respiratory condition that compels the attending physician to put the patient on a ventilator which ought to be strictly avoided for COVID-19 patients. Even after wearing a mask for a short period of time it becomes filthy. The more polluted the indoor and/or outdoor ambient air is, the quicker the mask will become contaminated. Not only is the mask capturing particulate and chemical pollution from the ambient air, the accumulation of these throughout the course of a day further obstructs the necessary breathing process. Now let’s add into the mix the constant coughing and sneezing and spitting up phlegm and mucus. What will inevitably develop regarding the mask is a worst-case scenario that can push the patient onto a ventilator. This is only one reason so many hospital inpatients are being vented; the inappropriate treatment plans also include specific pharmaceutical drugs that are strongly contraindicated for Coronavirus syndrome. Anyone who has ever worn a tight, scratchy, synthetic mask knows they are so uncomfortable they want to take it off as soon as they put it on. And, that the longer they feel compelled to wear the mask, the more depressing the whole experience becomes. Not only is this discomfiting experience physically depressing for all the reasons explained above, it can also become emotionally distressing. There is a LOT of anecdotal evidence that proves the longer the mask is worn throughout the day, the more dispiriting. Likewise, the more days or weeks of continuous mask-wearing, the more distressful life becomes. The best example of this new fact of life can be found in the many stores where the employees have been forced to wear a mask during the entire work day. Clearly, they are not happy. Nor are they as helpful as they used to be. The usual courtesy and cheerfulness have been replaced with gloom and/or sadness and/or frustration.
WARNING Update: The Summer months are an especially dangerous time for folks to wear a mask. In point of fact, several governments around the world have issued official warnings about how wearing a mask can contribute considerably to the development of heat exhaustion and/or heat stroke. Particularly in warmer climes such as the American Deep South and Southwest, people need to be extremely careful about needlessly wearing a mask. For children, masks can be downright fatal. Similarly, the elderly ought to be wary about being bullied into mask-wearing, specifically those with chronic or acute respiratory ailments. Those individuals with certain underlying conditions, notably the older and infirm, can be much more vulnerable to heat exhaustion during the hot season. See: WARNING! Medical experts in Japan say wearing a mask during the hot summer greatly increases risk of heatstroke

HIPAA Mask Exemption Meme Origin and Claims
The iteration above appeared to be the most widely circulated, and atop an icon of a masked individual with a circle and a slash over it, it read:
I am exempt from the Governor’s regulation mandating face mask usage in public. Wearing a facemask poses a health risk to me.
Under the ADA and HIPPA, I am not required to disclose my medical conditions to you.
Department of Justice ADA Violation information line: 800-514-0300
Organizations and businesses can be fined up to $75,000 for the first ADA violation and $150,000 for any subsequent violation.
TO ALL GOVERNMENT AGENTS: PLEASE PROVIDE LAWFUL AND NECESSARY CONSIDERATION TO AID THE BEARER IN THE UNIMPEDED EXERCISE OF THEIR CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED RIGHTS.
Thank you for your understanding and assistance.
The version embedded above was shared by a former congressional candidate from Illinois named James Marter on May 2 2020, and the image itself was automatically scanned by meme aggregator iFunny.co the following day. It’s not clear when or in which particular state the meme originated, and others with more specific threatening language [PDF] also circulated.
An Appended Link to the CDC’s HIPAA Landing Page
Marter linked to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)’s boilerplate HIPAA definitions page, which shed approximately no light on how the claims of the mask exemption meme were somehow related to HIPAA. That page began with a definition of HIPAA’s “Security Rule”:
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA)
HIPAA Security Rule
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law that required the creation of national standards to protect sensitive patient health information from being disclosed without the patient’s consent or knowledge. The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued the HIPAA Privacy Rule to implement the requirements of HIPAA. The HIPAA Security Rule protects a subset of information covered by the Privacy Rule.
That portion of the page indicated that the HIPAA Security Rule required national standards in order to “protect sensitive patient health information from being disclosed without the patient’s consent or knowledge.” Although arguably the “consent” portion could be relevant, the “knowledge” portion was not.
Directly beneath that, HIPAA’s “Privacy Rule” defined the scope of the two rules:
HIPAA Privacy Rule
The Privacy Rule standards address the use and disclosure of individuals’ health information (known as “protected health information”) by entities subject to the Privacy Rule. These individuals and organizations are called “covered entities.” The Privacy Rule also contains standards for individuals’ rights to understand and control how their health information is used. A major goal of the Privacy Rule is to ensure that individuals’ health information is properly protected while allowing the flow of health information needed to provide and promote high quality health care and to protect the public’s health and well-being. The Privacy Rule strikes a balance that permits important uses of information while protecting the privacy of people who seek care and healing.
To reiterate, Marter chose that link and that link alone to substantiate his claims about HIPAA’s relevance to the patchwork of public health directives recommending or requiring the usage of face masks in public areas. The second of the two rules — the Privacy Rule — involved individuals (i.e., bearers or a printed or laminated COVID-19 HIPAA exemption pass) and “covered entities.”
So who are covered entities? According to the same page:
- Healthcare providers (self explanatory — doctors, nurses, Urgent Care centers and the like);
- Health plans (self explanatory — companies providing health insurance or coverage);
- Healthcare clearinghouses (entities handling billing, data, and other protected health information but not directly administering care);
- “Business associates: A person or organization (other than a member of a covered entity’s workforce) using or disclosing individually identifiable health information to perform or provide functions, activities, or services for a covered entity. These functions, activities, or services include claims processing, data analysis, utilization review, and billing.”
Of the four covered entities, three were clearly irrelevant on their face: Providers, plans, and billers or data handlers. None of those entities were of the sort to whom such a document might be presented. The fourth, “business associates,” still fell under people directly handling protected health information — processing of claims or review of healthcare. None of the covered entities were targeted by the HIPAA mask exemption sheet — that would presumably be retail store owners, restaurants, and other public places or spaces whose purpose and function had no relation to health.
In short, none of HIPAA’s covered entities were relevant to the claims about face mask exemptions.
Exceptions to HIPAA
Although covered entities were not restaurants, stores, malls, bowling alleys, hair salons, or other public places possibly following health and safety directives regarding masks during the COVID-19 pandemic, the portion following was still relevant to the claims.
Even if restaurants, stores, and bowling alleys were “covered entities” under HIPAA, a section titled “Permitted Uses and Disclosures” followed immediately thereafter. It explained in part:
Permitted Uses and Disclosures
A covered entity is permitted, but not required, to use and disclose protected health information, without an individual’s authorization, for the following purposes or situations:
… Public interest and benefit activities—The Privacy Rule permits use and disclosure of protected health information, without an individual’s authorization or permission, for 12 national priority purposes[.]
Those 12 exemptions were as follows:
- When required by law
- Public health activities
- Victims of abuse or neglect or domestic violence
- Health oversight activities
- Judicial and administrative proceedings
- Law enforcement
- Functions (such as identification) concerning deceased persons
- Cadaveric organ, eye, or tissue donation
- Research, under certain conditions
- To prevent or lessen a serious threat to health or safety
- Essential government functions
- Workers compensation
Five of the twelve listed conditions for HIPAA exemptions involved laws, rules, or public health in general. The site OSHA Healthcare Advisor addressed HIPAA claims and mask wearing in 2012:
Q: Our healthcare facility is requiring employees to get the flu shot or they will have to wear a mask when within 6 feet of patients. Is this not a violation of employee or patient privacy?
A. The Privacy Rule only protects the privacy of patient, not employees. Requiring non-vaccinated employees to wear a respiratory mask to protect the health of patients does not violate the patient’s privacy and may prevent the spread of infection.
Notably, some portions of HIPAA’s Privacy Rule were waived in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic:
Effective March 15, 2020, for example, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Alex M. Azar (Secretary) waived certain penalties and sanctions under the HIPAA Privacy Rule against hospitals in its March 2020 COVID-19 and HIPAA Bulletin.
COVID-19 Face Mask Exemptions Under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)
According to ADA.gov:
To be protected by the ADA, one must have a disability, which is defined by the ADA as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a person who has a history or record of such an impairment, or a person who is perceived by others as having such an impairment. The ADA does not specifically name all of the impairments that are covered.
Under any claimed or covered exemption to COVID-19 face mask orders under the ADA, an individual must have a legally recognized disability as defined by its provisions. The meme appeared to cobble together what someone believed HIPAA’s privacy mandates were along with the ADA’s accommodations, but the ADA did not entitle anyone to claim a disability they did not in fact have.
Additional, expanded detail on legally mandated requirements for the ADA had largely to do with accessibility in matters such as architecture and mobility — not skirting public health law. An example from the ADA’s most relevant portion (Title III) illustrated the actual purpose of that law:
Public accommodations must comply with basic nondiscrimination requirements that prohibit exclusion, segregation, and unequal treatment. They also must comply with specific requirements related to architectural standards for new and altered buildings; reasonable modifications to policies, practices, and procedures; effective communication with people with hearing, vision, or speech disabilities; and other access requirements. Additionally, public accommodations must remove barriers in existing buildings where it is easy to do so without much difficulty or expense, given the public accommodation’s resources.
Disabilities Precluding or Preventing Compliance with COVID-19 Face Mask Orders
We were unable to locate any example of a disability preventing the use of face masks in public or private spaces. However, business site JDSupra.com addressed claims reported by employers from employees asserting a disability (unspecified) preventing them from wearing face masks.
People reading the COVID-19 HIPAA/ADA mask exemption meme might expect the provisions of both laws meant it was as simple as claiming a disability prevented them from wearing face masks. However, that guidance explained that was not actually the case and described how such a claim might progress:
“We are requiring all employees to wear face coverings in accordance with recent CDC guidance and several employees have said they can’t wear them due to medical conditions.”
Requiring a face mask or covering is a workplace rule that can be enforced by the employer, but the requirement may need to be accommodated, just like other workplace rules, for a disabled employee. In this case, the employees should be sent home and you should begin the ADA interactive process to find out what prevents them from wearing face coverings and whether there are any accommodations that would enable them to do so. It is entirely possible that no accommodations will exist and you do not need to waive the requirement (just like you don’t have to waive other workplace rules for an individual with a disability, like those related to workplace safety), but you still need to go through the interactive process before making that determination.
If someone provides a legitimate medical reason for not wearing a face covering and you determine that there are no accommodations that would enable to employee to do so, the employee should be placed on an unpaid leave of absence until face coverings are no longer required. The same analysis should be performed for other types of temporarily required equipment or clothing, such as latex gloves. Again, this type of leave is not covered by the FFCRA and would be unpaid.
Even in the far stricter realm of employer/employee relations, claims about inability to wear a face mask during the COVID-19 pandemic did not necessarily mean the claimant was accommodated by relaxation of the rule. The employer was advised to determine why the employee might need such an accommodation; if no accommodation existed, the employee would be placed on unpaid leave “until face coverings were no longer required.”
It is not clear if the printed HIPAA/ADA mask exemption document was intended for employees to present to employers — but if that was the intent of some users, they might be surprised to learn their claim could preclude their ability to work and be paid “until face coverings are no longer required.”
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) issued similar guidance, requiring further investigation of any such claim:
If an employee refuses to wear a mask that has been required by state or local order or is otherwise strongly advised by OSHA or the CDC, then the employer should first attempt to explain the requirement to the employee and convince the employee of the need to wear the mask, [attorney Todd] Logsdon said. If an employee continues to refuse the legal or safety requirement, the employer may be able to suspend the employee.
[Attorney Kathy Dudley] Helms noted that the employer needs to determine if a worker’s disability prevents him or her from wearing a mask. If so, the employer should engage in the normal interactive dialogue under the Americans with Disabilities Act, verify that the employee cannot wear a mask and state what possible accommodation would allow the employee to work.
“If the employee finds a mask uncomfortable or prefers not to wear one, that is likely insufficient and an employer can require it as a condition of employment,” she said, noting that union settings may be different, and employers should consult their collective bargaining agreement.
In short, it appeared employers were well within their rights to require employees wear masks — and, further, to suspend those who refused to comply. Even workers with a disability purportedly precluding the use of face masks were not legally guaranteed an exception (and seemed unlikely to receive one.)
States and Other Jurisdictions Requiring or Recommending Masks in Public During COVID-19
We located no centralized source for precisely which jurisdictions required masks, and the recommendations varied quite a lot — which is undoubtedly how so much disinformation is able to thrive about this very topic.
- In New Mexico on May 5 2020, a local news source reported Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced “new public health measures” affecting employees of businesses and retail stores, mandating the use of face masks;
- On May 3 2020, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine partly reversed a mandate that employees and customers in retail and restaurants wear masks;
- On May 1 2020, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker issued a broad order “requiring the use of masks or face coverings in public places where [people] cannot socially distance from others … such as grocery stores, pharmacies and other retail stores”;
- On April 21 2020, Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont “issued an executive order encouraging everyone to wear a face covering in public places where they can’t social distance”;
- On April 15 2020, New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued an order mandating “masks or face coverings in public whenever social distancing was not possible” for “people who are unable to keep six feet away from others in public settings, such as on a bus or subway, on a crowded sidewalk or inside a grocery store”;
- Also on April 15 2020, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan mandated the use of face masks in stores and on public transit in that state;
- As of April 16 2020, similar orders existed in more than a dozen states.
Similar orders or mandates existed in cities, counties, and various jurisdictions. Notably, the orders were not identical — some addressed only employees, others customers, and some affected users of public transit.
The Scope of COVID-19 Mask Mandates
Details in the above-linked news outlets demonstrated a relatively consistent patterns of the scope of COVID-19 mask orders, mandates, or other public health directives:
- They often covered retail employees or essential workers in general;
- They sometimes covered customers or patrons of retail stores and restaurants;
- In large cities, they occasionally involved public transportation (such as buses or subways);
- They were often stipulated as required when “social distancing was not possible,” or when members of the public were expected to not maintain distances of six feet or more.
No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service
If we go back to the claims of the meme and try to interpret its claims under HIPAA and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), it fell apart under relatively little scrutiny. Employers were within their rights to require masks, and many states issued an array of orders requiring the use of masks in stores, restaurants, and other essential businesses.
The ADA applied only to a legally recognized disability, and employers were not required to allow employees with a legitimate disability precluding or preventing the use of a face mask to continue working for the duration of the pandemic. Moreover, under those conditions, the employee could be placed on unpaid leave.
It seemed the balance of the claims pertained to members of the public demanding entry to public places but refusing to comply with jurisdictional orders they wear masks during the COVID-19 pandemic. In short, the meme was largely aimed at putative patrons or customers of a business and their demand they be admitted or served while refusing to comply with public health orders.
Most people are familiar with “no shirt, no shoes, no service” signs, or the ability of a business (restaurants or stores) in particular to refuse service for reasons related to health, safety, or discretion:
A business can legally ban a customer not only based on its discretion, but also for health, safety, or other similar reasons, such as the customer being unruly, disrupting the business or its operations, causing injury, stress, or upset to employees, contractors, or other customers.
Business are within their rights to refuse service for a variety of reasons — so long as those reasons are not race, religion, sexual orientation, or membership in any other protected class. (It did not appear “not wanting to wear a mask” had yet become a protected class.)
COVID-19 Mask Mandate Refusal as Described in the Meme: Will It Work?
Just as discretion is a primary reason businesses maintain the right to refuse service, they also maintain the ability to not refuse entry to unmasked customers:
Lindsay Wiley, director of the Health Law and Policy Program at American University Washington College of Law, says that while [jurisdictional in Washington, D.C.] signage is mandatory, it’s essentially up to the businesses to determine how it will be enforced. While the mayor is telling individuals to wear masks, she isn’t mandating that in the order itself — such an order would be susceptible to constitutional rights challenges, according to Wiley.
It’s also not exactly clear what fines or other measures the mayor would take in cases where people or businesses fail to comply; the order gives wide latitude for enforcement. “Any individual or entity that knowingly violates this Order may be subject to civil, criminal and administrative penalties, including sanctions or penalties for violating D.C. Official Code 7-2307, including civil fines or summary suspension or revocation of licenses,” the order reads. That section of the D.C. Code gives the mayor the ability to fine entities up to $1,000 per violation and revoke, limit, or suspend licenses.
The Metropolitan Police Department said in an emailed statement that “retail food establishments may deny customers entry or ask them to leave based on a failure to wear a mask or follow other social distancing standards.” When MPD officers encounter or receive complaints about people who violate the mayor’s orders, “the goal is to obtain voluntary compliance,” the statement reads, and “members will educate the public on health and safety risks as well as the potential consequences if they do not comply.”
By the same token, it’s possible a retail or food service employee presented with a copy of the meme would be unaware it’s not really legally solid, and permit an unmasked person to enter based upon its implied claims. (But that wouldn’t mean they were accurate claims.)
COVID-19 Mask Mandate Exemption, in Summation
A viral image claiming HIPAA and the ADA exempted anyone who didn’t want to wear a mask from localized COVID-19 face mask mandates didn’t appear to be legally sound — even in the more regulated employer/employee relationship and even in the presence of a legally documented disability, individuals “unable” to wear masks might be sent home without pay for the duration of the pandemic. Businesses were within their rights to refuse entry to anyone not complying with local public health ordinances requiring masks, and even in the event a legally documented disability prevented the wearing of masks, no one was entitled to jeopardize public health due to their own disability. It was possible those who printed and presented the COVID-19 mask exemption document would be allowed entry, but we found no legal basis permitted people who didn’t want to wear masks from violating regional public health ordinances.
Update, June 25 2020
In late June 2020, a number of Facebook posts about the HIPAA and ADA “face mask exemption passes” began circulating — this time warning business owners that the referenced “FTBA” stood for “Freedom to Breathe Association”:
That post (and others like it) referenced a domain name printed on the “pass,” “ftbagency.com,” and the poster said “a real government organization the website would be .gov not .com.” Beyond that, the domain in question as of June 25 2020 was not functional and led to the following Wix.com website builder message:

ADA.gov Warns: ‘*COVID-19 ALERT: Fraudulent Facemask Flyers*’
An undated alert shared to ADA.gov warned Americans “not to rely on the information” presented on the social media posts and printed passes, describing them as “fraudulent”:
*COVID-19 ALERT: Fraudulent Facemask Flyers*
The Department of Justice has been made aware of postings or flyers on the internet regarding the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the use of face masks due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of which include the Department of Justice’s seal.
These postings were not issued by the Department and are not endorsed by the Department.
The Department urges the public not to rely on the information contained in these postings and to visit ADA.gov for ADA information issued by the Department.
For more information and technical assistance about the ADA, please contact the ADA Information Line at 800-514-0301 (voice) and 800-514-0383 (TTY).
As indicated above, the Department of Justice “urge[d] the public not to rely on the information” spreading in the posts on on the ADA/HIPAA “mask exemption pass” printouts, and disavowed the use of its seal. The ADA shared the message on its own website in an attempt to defray the widely-spreading and dangerous disinformation.
Face mask exemption cards – here’s who qualifies and how you can get one
From today, face coverings are compulsory in all shops and supermarkets in England and Scotland – as well as on public transport and when visiting a hospital – but there are a few exemptions
Face coverings are now compulsory in all shops and supermarkets in England as the UK continues to fight the deadly coronavirus infection.
All members of the public will be required to shield their faces in stores, as well as on public transport and in all hospitals across England.
Those who fail to comply with the new rules will face a fine of up to £100, the Government has warned.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said it would “give people more confidence to shop safely and enhance protections for those who work in shops”.
The move brings England into line with Scotland and other major European nations like Spain, Italy and Germany.
Since mid-May, members of the public have been advised to wear coverings in enclosed public spaces, where they may encounter people they would not usually meet.
However, there are some people that may be exempt from the rules.
Here’s what you need to know if you may not be able to wear a covering.
Face mask exemptions – all you need to know
The government currently says you don’t have to wear a covering if you have “any physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability”, and would experience “severe distress” from doing so.
- If you’re travelling with someone who requires lip-reading
- If you suffer from severe distress when you put it on
- Suffer from a disability where you’re unable to put it on
- Or you need to eat, drink or take medication
If you are travelling with someone who requires lip-reading or reading facial expressions, wearing a mask will not be compulsory.
The new rule will not apply to retail staff, but will apply to all members of the public. Children under 11 are also exempt.

What is the face mask exemption card?
The Government says you will not be asked to show written evidence if you’re not wearing a face mask – with supermarkets and shops urged to be mindful towards those who may have special circumstances.
However, exemption cards and badges are available if you’re worried about being stopped.
This is a personal choice, and is not necessary in law.
It’s in the form of an e-document that you can save on your phone.
The charity Hidden Disabilities has also created a face mask exemption card for anyone with the right requirements to be exempt from the law.
This card simply indicates that you have a hidden disability, illness or impairment and have a reasonable excuse not to wear a face-covering.
The card costs 55p, but could provide you with the peace of mind in case you are stopped.
God Bless You All. I know HE loves you. TRUST HIM!
