For you to be marked... like a herd animal... It's always in the name of "safety" and "protecting 'our' freedoms" against suspected terrorists, criminals and immigration violators, isn't it? This time digitally. The harder they try the worse it gets. Just like the war on terror, war on drugs, war on cancer, and now the war on "cv1984." It's not about any of those. It's about full spectrum domination of the human race by a cadre of cunning connivers.
The thing is, the whole world system is antichrist in the 1st place, as it is according to St. John's Epistle, under the power of the evil one. None of this world's leaders can be trusted, though they consider themselves to be demigods, included the elected ones. "It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes." Ps 118:8,9
It seems like we'd all understand this by now and be done with setting ourselves up for disappointment in any politicians, even the ones who say they are not politicians. Yes, they too qualify for the description of "princes," where what amounts to lording over has supplanted the idea of being public servants. The latest incarnation of this demagoguery in the form of techno-fascism will "trump" them all.
There's been some speculation by commentators on the reasons for ever escalating mandating of essentially useless and even risk creating use of facecoverings, as yet another draconian government response to this alleged pandemic.
Here's a very intriguing look at one perspective in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9FmLtBNMZo You may wish to view this before reading this writer's perspective.
Here's another take on masks. Every human countenance reminds "the serpent seed" that human beings, although fallen, are created in the image and likeness of our Creator Heavenly Father, and that in Christ our Redeemer, that likeness is being restored in us, as He also destroys the works of the devil, while bringing many sons to glory. The human countenance of the Redeemed will "shine" so to speak more and more toward the Day of His coming. "Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into His image with intensifying glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit." 2 Corinthians 3:17,18.
So the controllers demand (symbolic) masks so as not to have to look upon the Redeemed, as it reminds them of what awaits them: the end of their illicit control of humanity and all else given to us in Jesus Christ by the Father, which they have hijacked or pirated, or extorted or cheated from us.
Masks and masquerades have always had occult significance to the workers of darkness. They hide their identity, as they perform wicked rituals, spiritistic communications, shamanic activities, and general deeds of darkness. It is the taking on of an image, or projecting the "power" of it ceremonially. This has gone on for thousands of years.
So now it may be surmised they want to hide our identity too as sons of light - as we are changed from glory to glory. A plot, yes, but one that will fail, driven by fear and last ditch efforts to try to save what for them is passing away once and for all.
So, fear not little flock; it is the Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32. We should not be afraid of this - and should ask, might this be a hopeful sign pointing to the fact that their serpentine stranglehold on humanity is actually passing away?
Mandating the wearing of masks is one symbolic "cover-up" that shows how full of holes and ineffective this plot is to try to stave off the inevitable. But they will try it and hope no one is noticing.

So much silence when the right of the unborn human child is vacuumed away by the suction curettage machine and the forceps, a child who will never have the right to see the light of day, or the right to look into a joyful mother's eyes for the first time as she welcomes him into the world. 3000 a day. The abortion mills are still open. But not the silent churches.
But take away the right to go out for a coffee, or shop till you drop, or attend the silent feel good church, or do what we want when we please, and it's "How dare you take away my rights!" And then the silence is broken, as the freedom of the unholy trinity of me, myself, and I is insulted by this inconvenience.
The laws of God Almighty have been broken, twisted. But that's all legal. The highest court of the land legitimizes the greatest wickedness, and the people "celebrate" it. Might it be just a bit of divine comeuppance in what has overtaken us now? Oh, we're too sophisticated to believe such things.
"If you love Me, you keep My commandments." John 14:15. That's pretty clear. How has it gotten so muddy?
"When the earth experiences Your judgments The inhabitants of the world learn righteousness." Isaiah 26:9.
Suffering, grieving, death, illness, restraint put upon us… Some things that happen to us can be mighty difficult for a very long time. We undergo these strange times, where - with our Burger King, instant gratification, have it your way mentality getting in the way, we have forgotten the meaning that is always behind times of testing. It is not meaningless.
The following paragraph is from T. Austin-Sparks on: The Cross and the Way of Life - Chapter 1
"Yes, we pass into a time of excruciating spiritual and soul suffering. We do not know what the Lord is doing, what He means by this, what He is after, but we know the features of our experience and know what it is that we are suffering, and it goes on. We, of course, ask the Lord to stop it, to bring it to a quick end, to deliver us from it. He takes no notice of us, and it is only those people who get out the other end who say, ‘Thank God, He did not take any notice.’ In the meantime, we think He is anything but kind and good and doing the right thing, but as we get on under His hand, we begin to see and to sense that He is dealing with something. Maybe He is dealing with our pride, our independence, or our irresponsibility, for example. That is the issue that comes up, and we are faced all the time with something about ourselves that is almost devastating. We would not have believed that that was so strong in us."
In all things we are brought up to remembrance that He is the Creator and we are the creature - fallen, derelict, in need of salvage like old shipwrecks. "We" are being dismantled and refit with Christ in us, our hope of glory. He has made us. We blew it. He is remaking us in Christ.
Times like this remind us of our need. Lost sinners, in need of the one and only Savior Who calls, enlightens, and sanctifies us by the Holy Spirit.
"The sufferings of this present life are not worthy to be compared to the glory that is to be revealed to us." This we must remember and confess, as we give thanks always in all things. We also do well to recall the words of Jesus, "If anyone wants to come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me.” Could we say that we are to pick up what He in His infinite wisdom places before us, as He also took up His cross?
It is never without meaning.
