Why Christians should celebrate Thanksgiving to God without fear of “killing your grandfather”


By Mark Dinsmore

Dear Saints & Servants,

There is no question that much of the world is alarmed and fearful of catching COVID-19. These fears are being greatly exacerbated as governors in Washington, Oregon, California, and other states push for ever-increasing restrictions on travel and gathering over the holidays—while the mainstream news media incessantly reports on skyrocketing “cases” of COVID-19.

But how much of this fear is based on a rational review of the facts? Do the actual statistics reveal COVID to be the terrible killer it’s made out to be? Are any more people dying this year of COVID than die of seasonal influenza and pneumonia each and every year?

I implore each one of you to use your God-given faculties of reason, and examine the chart below. Then, consider whether the panic-inducing news media reports of “rapidly rising record cases” have any correlation to reality in terms of COVID’s actual lethality.

Blue bars represent total cases (positive increases in the results of testing for COVID-19). Red bars represent total deaths attributed to COVID-19. The data represents nine months of reporting from mid-March to the first week of November this year.

Does anything strike you as unusual about this chart? Even to the most casual observers, it should raise a number of questions:

  1. If COVID-19 is the deadly virus it’s made out to be, then why are we witnessing a decreasein deaths, as case counts continue to climb “out of control”?


  1. If the death count is actually decreasingwith time, or even remaining level, then why are draconian lockdowns, shutdowns, and threats of fines and imprisonment being increasinglyenforced in the U.S. and around the world?


  1. Why do COVID measures repeatedly and perpetually target our Constitutional rights, beginning with the First Amendment, which states:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

  1. Why are churches and houses of worship being targeted, both directly and indirectly, through increasingly unreasonable and unconstitutional restrictions?

Answer: If you’re a Bible-believing Christian, you should already know that spiritual warfare is becoming political and tangible as the enemies of Christ and Christianity are unifying under a global agenda inspired by the spirit of the age, whom the Bible calls “prince of the power of the air.”

But in the case of coercing people into COVID compliance, Congress isn’t the culprit. Rather, it is primarily progressive politicians (both D and R) working in alignment with the United Nations, the World Health Organization, and the World Economic Forum. While these organizations all present a glorious public facade of uniting for the benefit of mankind, the foundational beliefs and values of these entities are all rooted in atheistic humanism.

[Note: Some in the body will disagree; but if you will bear with me in Christian patience and charity, this is substantiated here and in other writings. If you have any questions about this, please contact me.]

Why is this important to believers? Because the Scriptures exhort all believers to “have nothing to do with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.” —Ephesians 5:11

The number one sign of the times, according to the Scriptures, is spiritual deception—which in turn is the source of all political propaganda and false hope in human government. As God’s Word reveals, Satan is establishing a kingdom of darkness that is both spiritual and political, by which he will assume total control over the world’s resources, which by extension will allow him to control the world’s population.

Christians need not fear Satan’s temporary dominion; for “greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4). And yet, believers are exhorted to understand the times so that like the sons of Issachar, we may know what we should do.

After leading a small group Bible study for over three years while teaching through the books of Daniel and Revelation, the leadership of the church we attended for seven years has censored (and censured) me for saying so—but let me say it again: The elite bankers of the world, the globalist non-governmental organizations, and the philanthropists which support them, are the enemies of Christ, and together with other visible and invisible entities, are presently collaborating to engineer the kingdom of Antichrist.

Yes, I do mean collusion with communism.

Few pastors dare call it conspiracy—but it’s right in the Bible:

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, [saying], Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. (Psalm 2:1-3)

[Note: Abundant evidence of Satan’s conquest of planet earth, working in and through the spheres of religion, politics, warfare, education, entertainment, business, and finance, is substantiated here and in my other writings. If you have questions concerning any aspect of this, please contact me.]

Let me make a quick note here, for those pastors and believers who are afraid of mixing religion and politics:

First, the root of all politics is spiritual.

Second, the Bible has plenty to say about political practices and beliefs—not only describing the reigns and acts of rulers historically, but also prophetically—particularly with regard to the future government of Antichrist, the foundation of which is emerging before our very eyes.

So, while most pastors avoid political discussions from the pulpit, the fears of causing unbiblical division are unfounded. (In fact, churches need biblical division more now than ever; as Jesus declared, “I came not to bring peace, but a sword.”) Even Paul asked the Galatians, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”

But the issue is not Red vs. Blue. What is at stake is truth vs. lies; blessing vs. cursing; freedom vs. slavery; and life vs. death. As Joshua drew the line before the Israelites, “choose you this day whom you will serve . . . but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” (Jos 24:15)

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, regardless of which side of the aisle you sit on, the reality is this: we are living in the midst of a world-wide, Satanically inspired coup which is supplanting national sovereignty with the tyranny of technocratic communism. Technocracy aims to rule and run the world through artificial intelligence (AI) and the man-machine interface of transhumanism. Experimental, DNA-altering vaccine technologies will become a regular part of human “upgrades” which will become connected to the new digitized order of things.

As I’ve written and will continue to warn, this is no longer a conspiracy theory, but an open agenda—cleverly packaged as a “global reset” to save the planet from pathogenic and environmental destruction. But it is not really the virus that is being targeted; rather, human beings have become the vectors which must be tracked and controlled.

Strangely, it’s a controversial topic that many pastors refuse to acknowledge or even discuss—either due to a fear of man, or a failure to understand the times from a biblical worldview, or both. My suspicion is many are fearful of being labeled as “anti-government” or “anti-science.” They also don’t want to lose relationships with family or friends—or cause influential and wealthy donors to walk away.

But it doesn’t take a degree in political science or theology to see that the architects of this antichrist transformation aim to eradicate (and eventually eliminate) the voices of anyone who follows Jesus. This is not “conspiracy theory.” It’s an open agenda.

This reality is made crystal clear from Washington Governor Jay Inslee’s latest COVID-19 restrictions placed upon churches and houses of worship—just in time for the holiday season:

  • Churches must post a sign at the entrancethat says “face coverings are required
  • Pastors, speakers, staff, and all in attendance must wear a face covering at all times(before, during, and after the service)
  • If the minister or speaker has a health exemption, they may speak behind a 3-sided Plexiglass shield
  • No choirsor ensembles may perform
  • Congregational singing is prohibited
  • Vocal soloists must wear a mask when performing

  • Instrumental sololists may remove their mask only during the performance


So forgive me for being blunt, but does this sound like we’re in a health crisis—or a Communist crisis?

Communism, of course, comes from Marxism. And as Richard Wurmbrand spells out in his must-read book, Marx and Satan, Karl Marx got communism straight from his dealings with the devil. Wurmbrand, a Romanian minister who was imprisoned a total of 14 years under communism, wrote Tortured for Christ and founded Voice of the Martyrs upon his release. In the introduction to Marx and Satan, 5th enlarged edition, Wurmbrand writes:

(Without taking time to quote his works further here, I also encourage you to get hold of Wurmbrand’s research and read it, because as long as the Lord tarries—and He’s a great deal more longsuffering than we are—the body of Christ worldwide is headed toward a time of increasing darkness and persecution.)

So, let’s ask a couple more questions concerning the dictates of governor Inslee, which align with similar restrictions in other states:

Is it science—or is it Satan who would muzzle ministers of the gospel, forcing them to read Scripture through a mask while “shielding” the faithful with Plexiglas panels?

Is it science—or is it Satan who would silence the lambs during the Christmas season, forbidding them to sing “Oh Come, All Ye Faithful“?

Is it science—or is it Satan who would mandate that all believers must wear masks and remain 6-6-6 feet apart at all times?

Is it science—or is it Satan who would cancel choirs and order vocal soloists to muffle their praise through a mask?

By all true measures of science, reality, and common sense, these restrictions are not only absurd, they are downright demonic.

(Pictures of C.S. Lewis’s Screwtape Letters come to mind, with Satan’s servants shrieking with glee at how easily believers have bowed the knee to their master’s diabolical design.)

Tragically, many churches are swallowing the lie—hook, line, and sinker. All across the nation, houses formerly filled with joyful worship are being transformed into sanctuaries of silence, separation, and solitude.

This is not science; this is not for our safety and security; it is the oppression of godless Communism. And Communism comes from Satan, who is the author of confusion, the god of this world who comes to steal, kill, and destroy—like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

So, for those who have ears to hear: The enemy of Christ not only intends to cut off the holiday of Thanksgiving to God (calling it instead, as governor Inslee did, “a season of gratitude”) but also seeks to cancel Christmas.

And you can be sure of this: the demons are delighted that so many Christians are going along with it. Or at least, they’re going along with part of it.


In public.

At church.

Sort of.

But not in private.

Though some are.

If the apostle Paul were writing to the church today, he might say, “O foolish Christians, who has bewitched you?”

And today I say: “O Church arise! For God is not the author of confusion!”

If shepherds and saints succumb to the “science” of the CDC and truly believe there is a disastrous pandemic causing mass casualties across the nation—as Anthony Fauci and the nightly news would have us believe—then servants of God should be following Jay Inslee’s orders to the letter (which is not the same as the law).

There should be no singing. There should be no unveiled faces. There should be no physical contact. There should be no groups gathering in your homes outside of your own household.

In other words, if there is a true health emergency, with bodies stacking up all over the state/nation/world, then by all means, we should all duck and cover and never come out until . . . “until the whole world is vaccinated,” according to Bill Gates.

But for those who have ears to hear, and eyes to see, the statistics reveal a flat line in deaths. (Please tell me how this is possible if the worst pandemic since 1918 is ravaging the planet.)

I have one more item to show you that should set your heart and mind at ease to gather this Thanksgiving.

On November 21, Jay Inslee sent a letter to religious leaders throughout the state of Washington (see attached), imploring them to “ensure that your congregation members wear masks and maintain six feet of physical distancing from others as these are effective mitigation efforts and help stop the spread of COVID.”

The governor also urged ministers to spread this message of cheer—I mean, fear:

“Lastly, as we head into the holiday season, please encourage your congregation to refrain from hosting events and parties with individuals from outside of their household. We know that these types of family and friend gatherings are particularly unsafe and are a significant source of COVID infections

No, we do not know this. What we do know is that record rates of testing, many using a faulty PCR testing technique that yields 97% false positives, results in a record number of cases.

Quarantining people based solely on a “positive” PCR test is no longer lawful in Portugal, thanks to a court decision ruling the test to be inherently unreliable, and thus fraudulent for policy-making purposes. “… if someone is tested by PCR as positive when a threshold of 35 cycles or higher is used (as is the rule in most laboratories in Europe and the U.S.), the probability that said person is infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97%.” https://www.silverdoctors.com/headlines/world-news/science-fail-court-rules-pcr-tests-unreliable-unlawful-evidence-of-alleged-covid-19-infections/

And as the chart at the top of this report illustrates, these cases do not correlate with hospitalizations; neither do they correlate with deaths. Mortality is at a flat line. So what does this mean? Simply this:


Even non-believers clearly see the disparity with which politicians pronounce “masks for thee, but not for me.” Anthony Fauci has been caught repeatedly donning a mask for the camera, and for taking it down when he thinks no one is watching. Nancy Pelosi got her hair styled mask-free during the salon shutdown, as also did Chicago Mayor, Lori Lightfoot. And of course, Gavin Newsom is the latest COVID hypocrite when it comes to blatant disregard for his own social distancing directives. (Examples could be multiplied; and given on the Republican side as well.)

The message is plain for anyone with eyes to see: These officials and bureacrats are not fearful of the very thing they seek to make us fearful of. And there’s only one explanation for this. It’s not stupidity; it’s not forgetfulness; it’s not “being human.”

It’s deceitfulness.

It’s duplicity.

As a resident of Washington state, the statistics of the county in which I live are also fascinating to consider. On November 22, the day after the governor sought to enlist ministers in his holiday crusade against COVID, the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department released this daily report:

Wow! 325 new Pierce County COVID-19 cases, no new deaths.

This should not only cause the church to shout “Hallelujah!” but also to exclaim, “The Emperor has no clothes!”

O Church, wake up, and Christ shall give thee light!

How long will ministers of truth and righteousness continue to allow this deception in our midst?

O Church, arise! You’re being deceived!

(Every believer should know that Satan is called the great deceiver; and that he, in various forms and times, “deceives the whole world.” But few believers believe that they can be deceived. This is the nature of deception; the one being deceived does not see it, unless someone helps them, and they are willing to look. Even Jesus warned his disciples, “Take heed that no man deceive you.”)

How long will the people of God tolerate such spiritual and political oppression in the name of “peace and safety” when it flies in the face of all true science and common sense?

O Church, wake up! Do not believe the lie that this latest call to “stay home, stay safe” is for our benefit; nor that it will only last through December 14. (Remember that the original call to “flatten the curve” was allegedly a two-week request.)

Nine months later, the world’s most powerful economies lie crippled—and much of the lower, middle, and upper classes decimated—as globalist technocrats begin to implement “smart solutions” which will largely dictate, track and trace the actions and reactions of every man, woman and child who receives a vaccine in their arm and a temperature reading from their forehead.

O Church, arise! The hour is late.

The good news is that “God is longsuffering toward usward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” The bad news is that “God is longsuffering toward usward, not willing that any should perish….” In other words, as long as the Lord tarries, it stands to get a whole lot worse before it gets a whole lot better.

As some of you already know, the powers that shouldn’t be have already announced that a “dark winter” is ahead. (More on this in my next piece, “Always Winter and Never Christmas.”)

So by all means, let’s gather and give thanks to God this holiday season.

Pastors, open your churches to sing and pray and preach!

Christians, open your homes to praise and proclaim the name of the Lord!

Let’s go and be “super-spreaders for Jesus” all over this land.

Arise, O Church.
