In addition to reading , listen to my take on the front page of AlexGNyc.com (https://www.spreaker.com/episode/48058111)
John 3:16 : “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
That begotten Son was born on Christmas , sometime between 6 BC and 4 BC according to scholars (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Date_of_birth_of_Jesus) . The day the Prince of Peace was born has been written as such a magical night in a bleak midwinter night with no room at the Inn. It is that Peace that we all strive for each and every year , each and every Sunday.
Born on Christmas Day was a healer, as well. His Mother Mary and father Joseph knew it. The Three Wise Men knew it. Later in life, Jesus would show his healing powers with the touch of his fingers. He brought Lazarus up from the grave. He made a blind man see. Truth be told, He walks side by side with us every day healing each and every one that lets Him in their life. Even those that don’t fully accept Jesus are not left out of His graces, I believe.
Now, in modern times, we are being healed through modern medicine. Whether you want to read/hear this or not, God has blessed the hands of those scientists that create this vaccine. While the messaging is confusing , the heart of the matter is God’s will. If we can believe Jesus the healer in biblical times, we can believe His healing power is working through the vaccines in modern times .
Between September and November 20, 2021, the CDC (yes, trust them) reported the risk of just getting COVID was 20x more if you are not vaccinated. As of November 27th, only 3.9% of fully vaccinated were hospitalized . So, VACCINES WORK! They HEAL just as the Prince of Peace healed! Here is the data point from this CDC link: (https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#covidnet-hospitalizations-vaccination)
Has this form of healing truly worked against omicron? According to the NIH (not talking head, Dr. Fauci, I assure you), they say booster effectiveness is 25 times MORE effective than just two shots. In fact the article linked below argues 80% of vaccine effectiveness against Omicron. Here is more information (https://directorsblog.nih.gov/2021/12/14/the-latest-on-the-omicron-variant-and-vaccine-protection/amp/).
UK Health Security Agency’s statistics cited by the NY POST is fascinating as well, since whatever case rates go on there WILL impact America . According to the UK HSA , omicron can be fought off for about 9 weeks. Yes , nine! So that’s about as long as we have to fight this variant of concern.

Screw the mixed messaging we hear from the Biden admin, Dr. Anthony Fauci or anyone else. At the heart of vaccine debate should be the fact that this will be to fight this damn COVID once and for all! If Mary and Joseph can adapt to ‘no room at the inn’ for the perfect birth of Jesus, that same heart must be applied here too. God’s healing hands are on these vaccines, and Jesus’s hands on these scientists daily, I believe it!
Christmas is about honoring life, now it is crunch time to PRESERVE LIFE.
