Covid-19: Used by Satan and the Globalists to Reduce the Population

Christians keep praying and trusting the Lord.

Stephen Nielsen

Chinese traveling from China to New Yorkand around the World.

Just today I read that Peter Navarro, the Presidents top aid, suggested that for two months the Chinese hid the Covid-19 virus from the world and then sent hundreds of thousands of infected Chinese on aircraft to Milan, New York and around the world. However, the President doesn’t think that it was deliberate, but accidental.

Nonetheless, whether it was accidental or deliberate, we can believe that it has been Satan’s plot to kill people. And in case you didn’t know it, it has been that globalists dream to reduce the population to 500 million people. So, why wouldn’t they use covid-19 to help fulfill that goal. And you can bet that more viruses—accidental or not—will be on the way. We should be prepared.

Who are the globalists? I think most of the world is, but the die-hard globalists are…

The Navigators: Lasting Influences

Stephen Nielsen

The two people in the Navigators that most influenced my life were Michael Ryan and Doug Benshoof. Let me start with Doug Benshoof, the Nav rep. I don’t know why, but he chose me several times to go witnessing with in the Marine barracks. I kept thinking that he was expecting me to follow in his footsteps, but sadly I never did, at least not to his caliber. Doug had a wonderful gift of discernment and a way of piercing right through a person’s arguments to their heart. I remember him telling me one time that when a person is most argumentative and belligerent, he often is the readiest to respond to the gospel. And I, personally, more than once, saw Doug bring a very angry and argumentative person to the point of repentance. I’ve never seen anything like it.

He also had a very commanding and authoritative presence…

The Meaning of Intercession – from Jesus

Jesus is the greatest intercessor of all.  From the passages I have copied at the end, we see the following three things that intercession is:

Intercession is praying on the behalf of others whom God has given us. In John 17:9 Jesus prays, “I ask on their behalf, I do not ask on behalf of the world, but of those whom Thou hast given to me.” And those whom were given to Him were not only His close disciples but they were all those who believe (v. 20). And so, we—you and I—are on that list.  And He is still praying for us, since He ever lives to make intercession (Hebrews 7:25).  This means that Jesus has interceded for believers everywhere, in all time throughout history.  What a marvelous thought.

And we are His followers. And so, we must do as He does.  We have that same calling: to intercede for all believers—that they would be unified together with God, kept from the evil one, and sanctified in the truth (Jn. 17).

Intercession is unselfish prayer; it is prayer that includes all believers. Jesus was always interceding for others. He taught that even when we pray for ourselves we should include the rest of the church.  He said, “pray in this way: Our Father…give us…forgive us…as we…deliver us” (Matt. 6:9-13).

Intercession is asking God to forgive others of their sins. Even when facing death He interceded for others as He prayed, “Father forgive them” (Lu. 23:34).

 

Matthew 6:5-13

“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

“This, then, is how you should pray:

“‘Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

10 your kingdom come,

your will be done

on earth as it is in heaven.

11 Give us today our daily bread.

12 Forgive us our debts,

as we also have forgiven our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from the evil one.’

 

Luke 23:34

Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”

 

John 17

After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed:

“Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 2 For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3 Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4 I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.

6 “I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. 7 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. 8 For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. 9 I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. 10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them. 11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name — the name you gave me — so that they may be one as we are one. 12 While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.

13 “I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. 14 I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. 15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. 17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.

20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: 23 I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.

25 “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. 26 I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”

 

Hebrews 7:25

Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.

The Navigators: My Decision to Stay with the Navigators

Stephen Nielsen

This is Doug Benshoof, his two kids, and his wife Betty.

It wasn’t long before my enlistment in the Marines came to an end, and I quickly decided to stay with the Navigators. The Nav rep, which was now Doug Benshoof, replacing Dave Kuchee, encouraged me to stick around for more Nav training, so I did. I also remember that my grandpa came to visit me and to find out what I was doing. I think he was a little skeptical of the Navigators and just came to make sure I wasn’t getting into some kind of a cult group. But it turned out that after speaking with Doug, he was assured that everything was up and up. He even seemed quite impressed with Doug and told me so.

So, I guess from that point on I was a full-fledged Navigator. What did that mean? I would find out. I…

Look at the Birds of the Air

Stephen Nielsen

For some reason I really like this photo. I have often past by this small tree next to that old telephone pole with the old spikes, and I usually always see little birds like these resting on the branches—without a care in the world. Oh, look at the birds. They have no worries. I wish I were as worry free as the birds.

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Matthew 6:26.

The Navigators: A Mentor Picked for Me

Stephen Nielsen

I knew nothing about the Navigators, but it didn’t take long to find out about them. In the very first meeting of singing, teaching and fellowship, Dave Kutche, the Nav leader introduced me to Michael Ryan and told us that we should team up together, that we would work well together. I didn’t know exactly what he meant, but Mike did. From that moment on Mike was my mentor: he would be discipling me. And that is what the Navigators are all about—discipleship.

There is so much I want to tell you about how Mike discipled me, but I think I will tell you a little bit about Sargent John first. He was Mikes mentor and close friend. In fact, they lived together in the same Marine barracks. But John was not only Mikes mentor and discipler, he discipled other guys in the barracks as well. He would lead them…

Crooked and Straight Trees

Stephen Nielsen

Crooked Tree

As you can see, this is diffidently a crooked tree. And notice that it is in the swamp.

A leaning tree.

This tree is not so raggedy, but it is bent over. It is also in a low area next to the swamp.

A very crooked tree.

This tree is a mess! And it is totally in the swamp. A swamp tree.

A very tall and straight group of trees.

Now here is a very lovely group of tree. Very majestic looking. And they are no where near a swamp.

Tall trees.

Notice that these tall trees are nowhere near a swamp. They were planted above the swamp.

Crooked and tall trees

In this picture, notice that the trees on the left are on lower ground and they are crooked and bent over. But the rest of the tree are on higher ground and they are straight and…
