Here we are, a little over two months later. It's time to see if those statements - given by purported "prophets, seers and revelators" - still hold true.
"follow the wise and thoughtful recommendations of medical experts and government leaders"
For almost the last two years, "medical experts and government leaders" have combined efforts to instill in us the belief that Covid-19 threatens the lives of all of us, infants to seniors. That the best way to prevent and beat back this "virus" is to wear masks, not associate with others and take (multiple times) experimental vaccines which manipulate DNA. All these "solutions" have been officially declared "safe and effective" by presidents  and prophets  alike, then repeated via mainstream media, big tech corporations and national governments.
Yet the actions taken by said "wise and thoughtful medical experts and government leaders" have been anything but wise or thoughtful:
"Medical Experts" have refused medical care for the sick who have not gotten the jab.  Even those who are awaiting organ transplants have been told to take a hike by their doctors because they haven't gotten the jab.  They will likely die because they refused to take an experimental vaccine.
"Government leaders" have openly deceived and lied about the pandemic, the injections and their personal commitment to their own mandates:
- This is a "Pandemic of the Unvaccinated": On 7/16/21, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said, "There is a message that is crystal clear: This is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated."  Yet as you'll see below, there appears to be no real correlation between vaccination rates and death rates (in many cases, there is a very interesting correlation between higher vaccination rates and higher death rates).
- "We follow the science": On 7/22/21, Pres. Biden said, "I'll respond to the COVID question: 'We follow the science. If you are vaccinated, you are safe."  Yet there has been little science justifying the "vaccines'" safety. For example: COVID-19 injections did not successfully clear animal testing (actually, they started animal tests, but because they kept dying, manufacturers stopped the tests and moved to human trials).  Even with the lack of animal studies, in-depth human studies have not been conducted:
- No drug interaction studies.
- No single-dose toxicity studies.
- No toxicokinetic studies.
- No genotoxicity studies.
- No carcinogenicity studies.
- No studies on pregnant women.
- No studies on pre-or post-natal development 
- "Wear your mask": Since the beginning of 2021, government leaders have consistently pounded this one message. Yet many have proven themselves hypocrites by not wearing masks (after telling people to do so):
- (10/18/21) The Bidens were caught violating DC mask mandate at posh Georgetown restaurant 
- (9/20/21) San Francisco Mayor London Breed violated her own mask mandate so she could be free from suffocating, get some clean oxygen, and start "feeling the spirit" at a BLM party 
- (9/13/21) Nancy Pelosi: Masks up for Official Ground Zero photos, then drops the mask when she thinks she's off-camera 
- (8/30/21) Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren partied maskless at wedding in New Mexico, in defiance of state COVID-19 restrictions. 
- (8/21/21) Speaker Nancy Pelosi again at a fundraiser. 
- (8/7/21) Barak Obama's birthday party 
- (7/30/21) D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser 
- (5/21/21) Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot 
- (11/18/20) California Gov. Gavin Newsom at party 
- (9/2/20) Speaker Nancy Pelosi 
Thoughtful, or just plain thoughtless? You tell me.
The First Presidency said that available vaccines had been proven safe. Yet:
- Covid-19 "vaccines" now have more side effects than all the vaccines created. Click here to see a small sampling of them: https://jabupdate.com/#adverse
- Countries like Denmark, Iceland, India, Japan, South Africa, Sweden and the U.K. have halted use of some vaccines because of their safety risks. 
- A peer-reviewed study showed the AstraZeneca "vaccine" causes "devastating" blood clots.  A European study found that the clot risk to 18-39s from AstraZeneca's jab Is TWICE as high as the Covid death risk. 
- Prior to FDA approval, Pfizer's Cominarty had: 
- No carcinogenicity tests (Section 13.1).
- No genotoxicitty tests (Section 13.1).
- No male fertility impairment tests (Section 13.1).
- No milk excretion/lactation tests (Section 8.2)
- No tests on subjects < 16 years old (Section 8.4)
- Pregnancy-related risk profile data is insufficient (Section 8.1)
- No information on long-term potential for myocarditis and pericarditis (Section 5.2)
- In fact, Pfizer itself said, "Comirnaty may not protect all vaccine recipients" (Section 5.5)
- On 9/28/21, it was reported that Johnson & Johnson employees didn't want kids to take their own company's COVID-19 vaccine. 
- Moderna's safety profile is no better:
- On 10/8/21, Finland halted Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine to men aged 30 and below. 
- On 10/8/21, Sweden and Denmark halted use of Moderna's vaccine for younger age groups due to side effects. 
- On 8/20/21, it was shown that Moderna's vaccine had 2.5 times higher risk of myocarditis over Pfizer's shot. 
- A leaked report by a Moderna vendor reported that in a 3-month span, there were approximately 300,000 adverse event reports. 
- On 10/6/21, scientists announced that Merck's COVID-19 pill could carry serious safety concerns. 
- Parenthetically, masks have been proven harmful in a variety of ways. 
What do you do when a "vaccine" formulation kills all the animals in animal tests? Skip the remaining animal tests and go right to human testing, of course (and even then, just avoid the standard ones run on humans). Tis better to be fast than safe, right?
Finally, answer this: If the injections are so safe, then why is an estimated 30-40% of medical professionals and emergency responders (Fire/Police/EMT) choosing to sacrifice their livelihoods, professional reputations and the financial stability of their families, because they have chosen to not take the jab?
The First Presidency also said that available vaccines had been proven effective. Yet as time has passed and more data has accumulated about the virus and its "vaccines," the unjabbed are looking smarter and smarter with each passing week.
- Multiple studies now show that the vaccinated equally catch and spread the virus. In fact, if anything, it's more like a "pandemic of the vaccinated." States like Washington have reported higher death rates from the jabbed than the unjabbed.  Israel reports there are more hospitalizations and infections among the jabbed than the unjabbed. 
- Effectiveness has dropped from "100% effective" to 20%.  They are "so highly effective" that booster shots every six months are being seriously considered.  You won't be fully vaxxed until and unless you have all your boosters. 
- Florida,  Sweden,  Haiti and Nicaragua never implemented lockdowns (except for vulnerable demographics) and displayed some of the lowest infection rates.
- Medical studies from around the world show that natural immunity offers up to 27 times more protection than "vaccines." [36, 37,38]
- Alternative treatments like Ivermectin  and Hydroxychloroquine  have reportedly cured people of Covid in days,  thwarting the need for hospitalization - a scenario Covid "vaccines" have never even gotten close to.
We are often reminded that we can confidently trust and follow the Brethren:
"The Church of Jesus Christ has always been led by living prophets and apostles. Though mortal and subject to human imperfection, the Lord's servants are inspired to help us avoid obstacles that are spiritually life threatening and to help us pass safely through mortality to our final, ultimate, heavenly destination . . . While neither perfect nor infallible, these good men and women have been perfectly dedicated to leading the work of the Lord forward as He has directed." 
"Come away from any others. Follow your leaders, who have been duly ordained and have been publicly sustained, and you will not be led astray." 
"I say to Israel, the Lord will never permit me or any other man who stands as President of this Church to lead you astray. It is not in the programme. It is not in the mind of God. If I were to attempt that, the Lord would remove me out of my place, and so He will any other man who attempts to lead the children of men astray from the oracles of God and from their duty." 
"You keep your eyes riveted on the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. We will not lead you astray. We cannot. Let me tell you why. Every week that I am in town, I attend a meeting of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve on the fourth floor of the Salt Lake Temple. If you could see the process by which decision and direction comes from that meeting, you would have a deep sense of confidence and comfort that the will of the Lord is being taught by the leaders of the Church. So keep your eyes riveted on the leadership of the Church. While individuals may falter, the body of general Church leadership will remain steadfast and true. If someone tells you that they have received revelation that the First Presidency and the Twelve have not received, run away from them." 
"In today's world, where 24 hours a day television and radio commentators spew forth conflicting opinions, where marketers compete for everything from your money to your vote, there is one clear, unpolluted, unbiased voice that you can always count on. And that is the voice of the living prophet and the apostles. Their only motive is 'the everlasting welfare of your souls' (2 Nephi 2:30)." 
"…We will not and … cannot lead you astray." 
"I have heard that some people think the Church leaders live in a 'bubble.' What they forget is that we are men and women of experience, and we have lived our lives in so many places and worked with many people from different backgrounds. Our current assignments literally take us around the globe, where we meet the political, religious, business, and humanitarian leaders of the world. Although we have visited [leaders in] the White House in Washington, D.C., and leaders of nations [and religions] throughout the world, we have also visited the most humble [families and people] on earth. … When you thoughtfully consider our lives and ministry, you will most likely agree that we see and experience the world in ways few others do. You will realize that we live less in a 'bubble' than most people." 
"They [apostles] teach and counsel as directed by the Holy Ghost, with no desire other than to speak what is true. Their voices can be trusted. Their voices are clear, unpolluted, unbiased. You can always count on them. Neither the President of the Church, nor the First Presidency, nor the united voice of the First Presidency and the Twelve will ever lead the Saints astray or send forth counsel to the world that is contrary to the mind and will of the Lord." 
In fact, we are told the Brethren will always speak the truth:
"It is precisely because we do care deeply about all of God's children that we proclaim His truth. We may not always tell people what they want to hear. Prophets are rarely popular. But we will always teach the truth!" 
"Thus our commission as apostles is to teach nothing but truth. That commission does not give us the authority to modify divine law. For example, let's consider the definition of marriage. In recent years, many countries, including the United States, have legalized same-sex marriage. As members of the Church, we respect the laws of the land and abide by them, including civil marriage. The truth is, however, that in the beginning-in the beginning-marriage was ordained by God! And to this day it is defined by Him as being between a man and a woman. God has not changed His definition of marriage." 
Yet the First Presidency has indeed taught untruths:
- The "wise and thoughtful" advice of "medical experts" is predicated upon their belief that Covid "vaccines" are safe and effective, and those who disagree with them - with even life-threatening conditions - may find themselves without any medical care at all.
- "Government leaders" lie by saying that it's a "pandemic of the unvaccinated" when it is not, that they "follow the science" when they do not, and in fact are hypocritical in implementing the very mandates they exact upon the governed.
- "Available vaccines" lack even the most basic safety data, consistently display consistently significant adverse effects and are even banned in countries because of their poor safety data.
- The "vaccines" are also ineffective in that the jabbed are often more contagious and require greater hospitalization than the unjabbed. We're talking about booster shots every six months. Even natural immunity and other substances (which our "thoughtful medical experts and government leaders" have discredited) provide better protection.
Somewhere, there's a disconnect. On one hand, we are told we can trust, and ought to follow, the Brethren, who always tell the truth. But on the other hand, the facts demonstrate that "available vaccines" have NOT "proven to be both safe and effective."
How do we make sense of this seeming contradiction?
Maybe an excerpt from Jeremiah 28: 5-9, 15 may help:
"Then the prophet Jeremiah said unto the prophet Hananiah in the presence of the priests, and in the presence of all the people that stood in the house of the Lord,
Even the prophet Jeremiah said, Amen: the Lord do so: the Lord perform thy words which thou hast prophesied, to bring again the vessels of the Lord's house, and all that is carried away captive, from Babylon into this place.
Nevertheless hear thou now this word that I speak in thine ears, and in the ears of all the people;
The prophets that have been before me and before thee of old prophesied both against many countries, and against great kingdoms, of war, and of evil, and of pestilence.
The prophet which prophesieth of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the Lord hath truly sent him.
Then said the prophet Jeremiah unto Hananiah the prophet, Hear now, Hananiah; The Lord hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust in a lie."
It's times like this that Brother Joseph might say,
"And none are required to tamely and blindly submit to a man because he has a portion of the priesthood. We have heard men who hold the priesthood remark, that they would do anything they were told to do by those who presided over them, if they knew it was wrong; but such obedience as this is worse than folly to us; it is slavery in the extreme; and the man who would thus willingly degrade himself should not claim a rank among intelligent beings, until he turns from his folly. A man of God... would despise the idea. Others, in the extreme exercise of their almighty authority have taught that such obedience was necessary, and that no matter what the saints were told to do by their presidents, they should do it without asking any questions. When Elders of Israel will so far indulge in these extreme notions of obedience as to teach them to the people, it is generally because they have it in their minds to do wrong themselves."
