A Fatal Illusion :: By Jonathan Brentner

It’s been heart-wrenching at times, but now I fear I have become numb to the nonstop drumbeat of disability and death about which I read every week if not every day.

In the past couple of years, I have read hundreds of reports depicting the great suffering and death caused by the COVID injections. Stories thoroughly buried by the mainstream news but nonetheless real to those now experiencing great pain or grieving the loss of loved ones.

The worldwide phenomenon of sudden deaths has reached a point where I must continue to warn people. The words of Proverbs 24:10-12 compel me to inform people of this fatal illusion that’s advertised as harmless. Some might say I’m a “conspiracy theorist”; that’s fine with me (I’ve been called far worse!). I very much wish I could keep silent, but I cannot.

The problem that keeps so many encased in a soundproof, dark bubble of normalcy is their failure to recognize that the globalists march to the drumbeat of Lucifer. They are his minions, which he’s using to set up his new world order over which his man, the antichrist, will reign.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that these demonic powerbrokers, who control most governments (including that of the U.S.), are mass murderers and liars. These followers of Satan display his character, which Jesus described as a “murderer” and a “liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44).

The Deadly Toll

Everything that follows has been carefully researched and, in most cases, comes with a footnote. The illusion regarding these shots is widespread and is not only false but also deadly.

  1. 4,000 Same Day Fatalities

According to the CDC VAERS, eleven hundred people in the US died the same day they received a COVID injection, with over twelve hundred perishing on the following day. Based on all reports to the CDC, medical professionals reported that 4,000 people died the same day that they took the shots.[i]

Please know that only a very small percentage of vaccine injuries are reported to the CDC, with the majority of hospitals strictly forbidding any and all reporting of COVID “vaccine” injuries. Some claim that medical professionals report just one percent of adverse effects; I believe that estimate is reasonable. Even with the vastly underreported number of 2,300 dying within a day of the injections in the U.S., is it not similar to playing Russian Roulette to take an injection or booster?

Imagine you are in a doctor’s office, and the nurse walks in with a needle and sterilizes your upper arm. As she does, she casually mentions that 4,000 people have died the same day they took the shot. Do you still receive it? What if she says that 40,000 have died immediately afterward? (a much more accurate assumption, yet far below the likely number of 400,000 same-day deaths throughout the world).

Would you not quickly say, “No, thank you!?”

  1. Placebos

If the injections are so deadly, one might ask, “Why do the results vary so widely? Why do many recipients show no side effects whatsoever while thousands drop dead the same day or the next?”

During the past couple of years, I have heard or read various reports claiming that the drug companies included placebos in the mix of COVID “vaccine” vials that they distributed. This summer, a nurse and another health professional claimed that thirty percent of the Pfizer “COVID vaccines” were, in fact, placebos. If true, and I suspect that it is, this would explain why many experience no ill effects whatsoever.

A nurse also stated on Twitter that Pfizer has two differing levels of toxicity found in the other seventy percent of the COVID shots. If true, would this not help explain the differing degrees of severity?

  1. Ineffective!

We now know that the initial claims regarding the COVID-19 “vaccine” were blatantly false. Data published by the United Kingdom (UK) government reveals that in 2022, 92% of those who died in the UK because of COVID-19 were “vaccinated” with one booster. A chart published by the UK at the link in the footnote demonstrates the ineffectiveness of the injections.[ii]

  1. A Statistical Leap in the Occurrence of Myocarditis

Myocarditis is a side effect of the injection that’s much more prevalent among those under fifty years of age. Although it doesn’t result in an immediate death, many who have this heart ailment fail to live another ten years. Based on CDC numbers, the number of young people stricken with this malady worldwide exceeds twenty-seven thousand, which is likely one percent of reality. Based on all that I have read, I can easily believe that the real number is well over two and a half million.

  1. Heart Attacks on the USC Basketball Team

During the past year, two University of Southern California (USC) basketball players suffered cardiac arrests at practice. USC requires that members of the team have all COVID injections.

Bronny James, the eighteen-year-old son of Lebron James, suffered a mild cardiac arrest on July 14, 2023, while practicing with the team. The same thing happened a year earlier to Vincent Iwuchukwu, another member of the USC basketball team, who has since recovered and returned to practice.

  1. The Dramatic Increase in Athlete Fatalities

William Makis MD, @MakisMD, in his article referenced on Twitter: “Teenage Athletes are still dying suddenly at unprecedented levels in US & Canada!!” provided the names of fifteen high school and college athletes that died suddenly or unexpectedly in the past month!

  1. Caleb White (17) basketball
  2. Tajh Boyd (19) football
  3. Callie Marie Mitchell (16) cheerleading
  4. Myzelle Law (19) football
  5. Dalton Gay (17) football
  6. Bria Deibert (19) basketball
  7. Chase Edwards (17) basketball
  8. Dy’Jierre Jackson (18) baskeball
  9. Tyson Downs (18) hockey
  10. Annie Messelt (16) soccer, skiing
  11. Simon Mirkes (16) hiking
  12. Jacob Atchison (19) military
  13. Thalia Chaverria (20) soccer
  14. Lance Pfrimmer (19) cross country, track
  15. Robert Bush (17) football

Many other news accounts confirm the death of basketball star Caleb White from Alabama. He was one of the top twenty-five players in the country in his class. He suddenly dropped dead at a practice.

Previous to the beginning of COVID injections, an average of 29 athletes worldwide died suddenly of heart-related ailments each year. In the two and a half years that have followed, there have been 1,884 athlete heart attacks, with 1,310 dying as a result. Since January of 2021, the yearly number of sudden deaths among athletes has jumped from 29 to 524.

Then there’s this report of a thirty percent increase in heart attacks:

NBC’s The Today Show reported, “A national study from Cedars Sinai Hospital shows the deaths related to heart attacks increased across every age group since the spring of 2020, but the group that saw the biggest increase isn’t who you might think…. The relative increase in heart attack-associated deaths among 25-44-year-olds was a staggering 30%…. Experts are still working to figure out why young people are so impacted.”[iii]

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the direct correlation between the dramatic rise in heart-related ailments and the COVID injections. Why are so many unwilling to connect the dots?

  1. Is it possible? 600,000 Deaths Each Year in the U.S.

On May 25, 2023, a top insurance analyst in the US, Josh Stirling, reported his findings from the UK to U.S. Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. Below is an excerpt from what he shared:

Those vaccinated against COVID-19 have a 26 percent higher mortality rate on average compared to those who declined the jab – and the death toll is even more staggering for vaccinated people under 50 years old, where mortality is 49 percent higher than for those unvaccinated.

The shocking numbers are based on government data from the United Kingdom and were brought to Senator Ron Johnson’s (R-WI) attention by Josh Stirling, one of the nation’s top insurance analysts and formerly Senior Research Analyst for U.S. nonlife insurance at Sanford C. Bernstein & Co.[iv]

This same article cited Stirling as concluding, “If you were to take these numbers and apply them to the United States, that ends up being something like 600,000 excess deaths per year.”

I have read of other insurance analysts stating that there’s been a forty percent increase in deaths in the under forty-four age group since the introduction of the injections.

  1. Rassmussen Reports

The quote below comes from a January 2, 2023, Rasmussen Reports story. According to their poll:

Nearly half of Americans think COVID-19 vaccines may be to blame for many unexplained deaths, and more than a quarter say someone they know could be among the victims.[v]

This poll shows that we are not alone in our suspicions. I would be in the 25% that suspect they know someone who has died as a result of the COVID injection, but I can’t say for sure.

  1. Cancer??

Dr. Peter McCullough is one of the top cardiologists in America. He’s also a teacher at the Texas A&M medical school. He recently reported that SV40, “a known cancer-promoting segment of DNA,” has been found in some of the COVID injections.

Below is a direct quote from Dr. McCullough as Alex Jones interviewed him:

“What I’m telling you is the shots promote cancer through SV40, and they inhibit our ability to fight cancer by suppressing the tumor suppressor system. So now this is looking very bad. Every system is showing cancer rates are up. So, that’s inarguable. The big question is, how much of this is due to the vaccines?”

There’s much empirical evidence that backs up this claim.

The “fact checkers” will tell you that the link with the increase in the incidents of cancer is totally false. But can you trust them? They are the same ones that tell us the COVID injections are trustworthy and absolutely harmless.

Satanic Delusions

Rudolf Steiner, 1917

Did you know that the satanic globalists have been planning sudden death by vaccine for over a hundred years?

Rudolf Steiner, an Austrian philosopher and founder of a satanic spiritual movement in his day, wrote the following around 1917:

In the future, we will eliminate the soul with medicine. Under the pretext of a ‘healthy point of view,’ there will be a vaccine by which the human body will be treated as soon as possible at birth so that the human being cannot develop the thought of the existence of soul and spirit. Materialistic doctors will be entrusted with the task of removing the soul of humanity. As today, people are vaccinated against this or that disease, so in the future, children will be vaccinated with a substance that can be produced precisely in such a way that people, thanks to this vaccination, will be immune to being subjected to the ‘madness’ of spiritual life.[vi]

He penned these words 105 years ago! Take a few moments to ponder the fact that his words are over a century old. Also, consider the fact that the FDA has approved giving the COVID injection to babies as young as six months, who have virtually a zero chance of dying because of COVID-19.

After including the Steiner quote in his book, J.B. Hixson wrote:

One wonders what he [Steiner] knew and how he knew it. What did the demons reveal to him about Satan’s transhumanist agenda that would unfold in earnest over the next century?[vii]

I agree with Hixson. The minions of Satan revealed their future plans to Steiner, who at the time was immersed in the worship of Lucifer.

The transhumanists of our day talk openly about eliminating the “god gene” in people. They say this will reduce the “hostility” or violence they believe arises from “religious passion.” That’s a lie, of course; it’s all a part of Satan’s agenda to prepare the way for the antichrist and his kingdom.

Aldous Huxley, 1961

More recently, philosopher and author Aldous Huxley spoke these words at the California Medical School in 1961 (please, please read these words very carefully):

There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will, in fact, have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.[viii] (emphasis added)

Huxley’s words represent the playbook from which today’s globalists operate. What he talked about in 1961 has become reality in 2023. “Pharmaceutical methods” are the weapon of choice for transhumanists seeking to change humanity by combining humans with machines.

In 2021, I watched a video on the World Economic Forum (WEF) website showing a smiling young man while the narrator said this about the future: “You will own nothing and be happy.”[ix]

Does this not precisely match the words of Huxley? People will never welcome servitude, but Huxley predicted that someday they will because of “pharmacological methods.” Hmmm…

For more of how Huxley and Steiner directly connect to the current COVID-19 injections, please see my previous article, Suddenly. The satanic planning for today began long ago, and true to his nature, the deception is widespread, and the suffering is over-the-top intense.

Pharmaceuticals During the Tribulation

Did you know that Revelation contains two references to the widespread use of pharmaceuticals during the seven-year Tribulation?

Revelation 9:21, while speaking of those who refuse to repent during the Tribulation, mentions “sorceries” as something they refuse to give up. In chapter 18, we read that during this time, “Babylon” will deceive the nations through its “sorcery” (18:23).

In both verses, the Greek word for “sorcery” is pharmakeia, which in ancient times denoted the administering of drugs and even poison. Most versions of the Bible translate the word as “sorcery” because of the longstanding connection with drugs used in magical spells and witchcraft.

Could the references to pharmakeia during the Tribulation period denote the widespread use of “medicinal” injections during this time? Huxley said that the powerbrokers of our world would someday use “pharmacological methods,” aka pharmakeia, to control people.

The dots connect rather well.

Jesus is Our Only Hope

My purpose in writing is not only to warn but to point you to the Savior. These injections are but one of many deadly delusions rampant in these perilous times.

The same governments that tell us the COVID injections are 100% reliable at stopping the virus and totally harmless are also saying we must drastically curtail farming and kill hundreds of thousands of cattle in order to “save lives.” How does causing the mass starvation deaths of tens of millions, if not many times that number, preserve human life?

These same powerbrokers, who have absolutely no regard for human life whatsoever, are demanding that everyone receive the deadly COVID injections. Last year, I listened as Joe Biden repeatedly yelled into a microphone that all those who refuse the shots are “murderers.” I have yet to figure out how that works.

The Lord Jesus is our only hope for the day in which we live. He gives us strength, unshakable peace, and bright hope for the future, regardless of Satan’s deadly agenda.

What we see happening today is precisely what the Bible said the world would look like in the last days. Although it’s terribly vexing to those of us who love the Lord and His Word, we know it signals the soon return of Jesus to take us home to glory. The words of 1 Thessalonians 5:1-10 promise that the event we call the Rapture will happen before the Lord pours out His wrath on this wicked, lawless, and exceedingly violent world.

Many of us who know Jesus as our Savior long for His appearing. We eagerly anticipate the day He catches us up to meet Him in the air and takes us up to glory (1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; 1 Corinthians 15:47-54; Colossians 3:4).

If you have not yet put your trust in Jesus, please, please see my post, Jesus Is the Only Path to Eternal Life. In it, I explain how you can know for sure that Jesus has forgiven all your sins and that you possess eternal life and with the sure hope of receiving an immortal and incorruptible body at Jesus’ appearing (1 Corinthians 15:48-54).

Please don’t delay; call upon Jesus while you may! Tomorrow may be too late.


My book, The Triumph of the Redeemed-An Eternal Perspective that Calms Our Fears in Perilous Times, is available on Amazon. If you wonder why I’m so confident about the Rapture occurring before the Tribulation, please see the evidence I present in this book; it’s the result of over 2,000 hours of careful study and research.
