COVID-19 vaccination. Our good experience and a few comments from the Bible.

Today, Tuesday 6 April 2021, my wife and I (George E Markakis) went for the vaccination against COVID-19. Each of us had an interesting experience, which I felt would be of benefit for some, who are worried; in the sense, that perhaps our experience may bring an answer, along with comfort and rest, so that they may stop worrying about it.

They key of our experience is (was) in our prayer, or more precisely, in the Lord’s response to our prayer, before we went for the vaccination. In the video there is reference to the words of Ap. Paul in “1 Corinthians 10”, and in “Romans 14”, so I am making those scriptures available here for reference.

For info, for those who do not know me, I am a Pastor, therefore responsible to guide those believers who are part of the local Church where I minister, as well as those who follow my teachings online on YouTube and Facebook.

We are part of the broader camp of Christian faith known as “Protestant”, “Evangelical”, “Pentecostal”, Apostolic Charismatic”.

I therefore speak from that position, of a Christian leader who is responsible to guide the believers who trust me for my opinion with regards to matters of the faith, as much as of other matters of concern.

In the message I make reference in these excerpts of the Bible:

1 Corinthians 8:1 Now concerning things offered to idols: We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies. 2 And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know. 3 But if anyone loves God, this one is known by Him.

4 Therefore concerning the eating of things offered to idols, we know that an idol [is] nothing in the world, and that [there is] no other God but one. 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are many gods and many lords), 6 yet for us [there is] one God, the Father, of whom [are] all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom [are] all things, and through whom we [live.]

7 However, [there is] not in everyone that knowledge; for some, with consciousness of the idol, until now eat [it] as a thing offered to an idol; and their conscience, being weak, is defiled.

8 But food does not commend us to God; for neither if we eat are we the better, nor if we do not eat are we the worse. 9 But beware lest somehow this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak. 10 For if anyone sees you who have knowledge eating in an idol’s temple, will not the conscience of him who is weak be emboldened to eat those things offered to idols? 11 And because of your knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?

Romans 14:14 I know and am convinced by the Lord Jesus that [there is] nothing unclean of itself; but to him who considers anything to be unclean, to him [it is] unclean.
