What Jesus and Moses Would Say and Do About Vaccinations and TB Skin Testing

By Leonard G. Horowitz and Tamera Swedlund


The following documentation explains and supports religious exemptions from vaccinations, “immunizations,” and TB skin testing. This information is based on what an average person might consider a reasonable interpretation of the Bible pertaining to “blood purity” and religious laws in this regard.

The issue of whether vaccinations and TB skin testing violates religious laws is pivotal to the protection of rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. “Public health” policies and related legislation in this regard impacts civil rights and religious freedoms.  Religious exemptions to vaccinations and TB skin tests, along with standard medical exemption, are under serious attack in the United States. Religious freedom is in jeopardy of being challenged and even seriously curtailed in the wake of the “Patriot Act” and the “Model State Emergency Health Powers Act” advanced by the Bush Administration in their “War on Terrorism.” This war now includes attacks on American civil liberties, religious freedoms, and more due to legislative actions said to be taken in defense of Americans threatened with outbreaks and epidemics planned by “terrorists.”

Old Verses New Testament Laws Regarding Vaccinations & TB Skin Testing

The Old Testament advances blood purity laws that the orthodox Hebrew community acknowledges. The Christian community, however, is generally conflicted in its theological view of vaccinations and TB skin tests. Both are correctly considered “immunization” practices according to health department definitions and state statutes. Both involve the injection of foreign germ parts and toxic substances into the blood. By focusing on New Testament laws, which are heavily based upon Old Testament teachings, certain clarifications can be made:

There are over 900 laws in the Old Testament. According to uncontested Christian theology, the Old Testament “Law Administration”  ended with the “Mystery of Grace,” ushered in by Christ's accomplishments at the Day of Pentecost. This is decreed in several Bible verses such as Romans 10:4: For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth.

Thus, most Christians assume that since the Old Testament Law “ended” for them; righteousness does not include keeping the original 900 laws. According to the Messiah’s own teachings, however, this is an errant view. For instance, Jesus (Hebrew name YahShuah) said in Matthew (22:37-39):

“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”

Obviously, loving the Lord thy God implies respecting his perpetual laws, even though these may be best learned from reading the Old Testament. This includes what God decreed in Leviticus 3:17:

 It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood.

The concept of "eating blood" for most people is repugnant and not at issue. The question of whether eating refers to the pagan practice of consuming or otherwise using blood, or performing blood sacrifices including poisoning blood by injecting germs or germ parts and other toxins to medically manage infectious diseases is the question here. The Creator clearly never wanted His people to violate a PERPETUAL law, which means “eternal, forever, always,” according Strong's Concordance.

In support of the permanence of this contention, other places where the word "perpetual" is used include Jeremiah, wherein the "prophet to the world" prophesied that some nations would be "perpetual desolations."  Those countries were wiped out and never rebuilt. (See also: Jeremiah 25:12.) Christ did not end “eternal” or “perpetual” laws that the Father decreed shall exist “forever” for His faithful.

Indeed, the only correct form of "eating blood" exists solely in a metaphorical sense. It comes in Catholicism with the drinking of wine representing the pure uncorrupted blood of Christ during ceremonial communions.  

The Hebrew root word for  “Eat” comes from its primitive root meaning to burn up, consume, or devour. According to Webster's Dictionary, "eat" is more broadly defined than as "to take in through the mouth as food." Definitions for eat include: " 2 a: to destroy, consume, or waste by or as if by eating (expenses ate up profits) b : to bear the expense of : take a loss on 3 a : to consume gradually : corrode b : to consume with vexation : bother (what's ____ you now) vi 1: to take food or a meal 2 : to affect something by gradual destruction or consumption -- usu. used with into, away or at --eater n. eat another's lunch : to deprive of profit, dominance, or success --eat crow : to accept what one has fought against --heat humble pie : to apologize or retract : to be jealous --eat ones heart out 1 : to grieve bitterly 2 eat one's words : to reject what one has said -- eat out of one's hand : to accpet the domination of another.

So a reasonable person might conclude the Bible’s perpetual Law states: abstain from eating, consuming, ritualizing, burning, or otherwise destroying blood, particularly as a pagan act.

New Testament Analysis

The New Testament amplifies this Old Testament blood purity edict in Acts 15:20, thusly:
“But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.” {Emphasis added.)

Acts 15:29 additionally states: “That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.”

So Christian theology submits your state of well being generally rests with abstaining from idol worship “and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication. . . .”

Concerning idols, Jews and Muslims (and some Protestants as well) are generally uncomfortable with venerating statues and pictures of God and/or YahShuah as this seems to violate the idolatry commandment that states:

3[Y]ou shall have no other gods before me. 4You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and the fourth generation of those who reject me, 6but showing steadfast love to the thousandth generation of those who love me and keep my commandments.

Jews and Muslims read this commandment as prohibiting the use of idols and images in any way. Some Protestants will picture Jesus in his human form, while refusing to make any image of God or Jesus in Heaven.

But what about the more common practice of idolizing medical doctors, placing full faith and trust in their pills and potions for physical salvation? Can reliance on vaccines for personal and public health, and freedom from infectious diseases, be considered anything less than the “pollutions of idols" discouraged in Acts 15:20?

MDs have undoubtedly become medical deities for many. Where does faith and trust in physicians start and Divine reliance end? Is there room for both in religious practice? If so, where does one draw the line? If not, the choice is clear and Constitutional freedoms clearly support this choice. They evidence a fundamental separation of church from state-sponsored vaccinations and TB tests.

The New Testament also makes direct reference to this subject in Revelation (18:23). Here it is very clear that the practice of pharmaceutical “sorcery” and medical merchandising is contraindicated for followers of Christ. Strong’s Concordance provides the root word (5332) for sorcery as pharmakeia. This, Revelation tells is associated with mass murders, gross destruction, End Times plagues, and worldwide deception. All of this, Revelation predicted, would be directed by drug industrialists.

The pharmakeia also served to extinguish the spirit of faith in Christ and his “bride.” Revelation (18:23) states: “And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”

Strong’s definition of pharmakeia proves the mass desolation and destruction occurs from:  “1) the use or the administering of drugs;  2) poisoning;  3) sorcery, magical arts, often found in connection with idolatry and fostered by it; [e.g., the television show “American Idol” mesmerizing millions weekly is a good example of mass hypnosis occurring like the casting of a “magical spell” over the cult-ure.]; 4) metaph. the deceptions and seductions of idolatry.”

On “Fornication” and Idolatrous Contamination

Warnings about "fornication" must consider the interchanging body fluids that results in the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS, herpes, hepatitis and more. . . . 

Strong’s Concordance includes in the definition of “fornication,” beside the sexual act of a whore: “3) to be a cult prostitute;” and “4) to be unfaithful (to God)” [Emphasis added.] 

Obviously Revelation (18:23) indicts the pharmaceutical cult in which medical personnel prostitute themselves in service of the “God of Science,” which is actually pseudo-science since scientific evidence of vaccination risks abound yet is suppressed from medical education and public attention.

Besides “fornication,” Acts 15:29 additional condemns idolatrous contamination of blood “from things strangled.”  Strangled means to kill by choking, or the lethal cutting off of oxygen (Element no. 8, the infinity sign, is our Creator's number as evidenced in Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse by Dr. Horowitz; see www.healthyworlddistributing.com).

Oxygen is the Biblical “breath of life,” used by the Creator in Genesis to animate Adam as a living spirit. Spiritual and physical sustenance depends on oxygen as hypoxia causes disease and death.

Hypoxia commonly results when germs are killed, mixed with toxic chemicals, injected along with heavy metal poisons into human bloodstreams. The “immune response” or “inflammatory response” to these blood poisonings tends to deplete cellular oxygen levels much like muscles use up oxygen by contracting.

How obviously un-Kosher, filthy, and vile, this practice of vaccinations and TB skin testing is from a reasonable religious perspective. How sad this heathen practice is rationalized as a required personal sacrifice for school admissions and workplace employment, allegedly for  "public health" based solely on pseudoscience that fails to gather all the injuries and illnesses resulting from this medical-deity-directed deception.

Jehovah's Witnesses on Feeding the Blood

Jehovah's Witnesses are considered the most conservative, even “radical” Christians in observing blood purity laws. Yet, even members of this group may choose to reconsider the organization’s official positions. This group considers blood transfusion to be both a misuse of blood, as well as violating an explicit admonition to not "eat" or consume blood in any fashion, as per the aforementioned explanations.

A common illustration that is used by members of this Christian sect is as follows: If a physician tells a patient to "abstain from alcohol" it would not follow that the patient should allow the injection of more toxic petrochemicals into his bloodstream as is routinely done during TB skin testing and vaccination.

Likewise, abstinence from blood transfusion is practiced since many diseases, including AIDS, hepatitis, herpes, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and certain cancers and conditions linked to Epstein Barr virus (EBV) contaminations have been widely spread by the American Red Cross and hospital workers despite their best intentions.

Oddly, as to the use of vaccines and TB skin tests, the Jehovah's Witnesses’s Watchtower Society neither condemns or endorses these acts. They write that the practices are virtually unavoidable in many segments of modern society. They state that Christians may find some comfort under these circumstances in the fact that this use of the blood is not in actuality a feeding or nourishing process, which was specifically forbidden when God said that man was not to eat blood, but it is a contamination of the human system nonetheless.

So, as was stated in The Watchtower of September 15, 1958, page 575, "It would therefore be a matter of individual judgment whether one accepted such types of medication or not."

This remains the Society's viewpoint on this matter today.

Alternatively, these authors argue this is an untenable and neglectful position, particularly by those professing to serve as “watchmen” viewing from a Christian “Watchtower.” Our controversial assertion is based upon the aforementioned definition of eating, and the following definition of "feeding" that you will see is not exclusive to oral consumption. Webster's Dictionary defines the act of "feeding" as:

"1 a: to give food to b : to give as food 2 a: to furnish something
essential to the growth, sustenance, maintenance or operation of  b : to supply (material to be operated on) to a machine b: support, encourage . . .  5 a (1) to supply for use or consumption (2) : channel route b (1) : to supply (a signal) to an electronic circuit (2) : to send (as by wire or satellite) to a transmitting station for broadcast . . . to become nourished or satisfied or sustained as if by food 3 a : to become channeled or directed b: to move into a machine or opening in order to be used or processed."

Obviously, with this broad definition, vaccination and TB skin testing is "feeding" blood to supply certain substances that either sustain life (from the medical/pharmaceutical view) or intoxicate human beings. This "feeding" of blood shall not be conducted nor fed blood used, according to Bible law.

Tragically, few people realize that vaccinations and TB skin tests use ingredients such as chemical poisons—for example phenol and polysorbate 80 in TB testing solutions, and heavy metal toxins such as aluminum and mercury, and petrochemicals including formaldehyde and formalin in all vaccines. The scriptural prohibition of feeding these poisons through the blood to humans, especially children, is a gross violation of Bible laws; repugnant to serious religious persons, and especially the ecclesiastical orthodoxy.

What Would Jesus and Moses Say About Vaccinations?

Moses would not hesitate to condemn vaccinations as pagan and poisonous. Leviticus 19:19, written by Moses, provides ample direction for anyone considering injecting their children with foreign genetic material, RNA and DNA, that commonly accompanies vaccines prepared from bacteria or viruses. These are grown in chicken embryos, bovine fetal serum, monkey kidney tissues and other species including yeast. All of these vaccine preparations present the risk of mixing human blood with animal and microbial genes risking cellular mutations and cancers.

This admonition states: “Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee.  

In other words, don’t mess around with genetic engineering as the mutants might move you, and the rest of the planet, to massive mortality and morbidity.

In fact, God is said to be so serious about this pagan genetic malpractice that when “the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them,” this genetic misbreeding of humans with extraterrestrials created mutations that motivated God in Genesis 6 to flood the entire planet. This was done to depopulate the pagans and evil ones in Noah’s era.

Evidence abounds that YahShuah (Jesus) would be equally appalled by this pagan hypocrisy—medical deities, idolized in their capacity to deliver poisons to the sovereign spiritual “temple” (i.e., the human body) while masquerading in white robes as servants of the public’s health. He would undoubtedly attempt to spread healing and edifying messages to “those with ears.” He would counsel us to be “fisher’s of men” by our example of righteous living.

As addressed in John 13:34,  the Son of Man provided this: “A new commandment I give unto you; that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. . . .(John 15:13) Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

This law calls Christians, like military heroes responsible for the lives of others, to love to the point of laying one’s own life down to protect and save “thy neighbors” and model for them right living (i.e., a healthy lifestyle). Without fear of condemnation and retribution the Messiah instructs us to be bold watchmen for saving our human family.

Hypocrites retain power and continue to profit from public ignorance as they did in YahShuah’s day. Schools and political leaders, for example, promote “Just say no to drugs,” while administering the laws by which toxic petrochemicals and risky pharmaceuticals are injected into our children’s bloodstreams. People line up, like lambs to be bled and butchered, for vaccinations and TB skin tests. These are often recommended by preachers and rabbis some of whom consent to the use of their Churches, Mosques, and Synagogues for the administration of these poisons.

What would Jesus say about this? If you still aren’t sure reread the laws and definitions cited above. Pray about this issue impacting civil rights and religious freedoms. Look for your answer where the holy ones have always directed your attention—to the center of your heart.  Herein lies wisdom free of pharmaceutical deceptions and scientific distortions. “Knowledge of the truth,” the Messiah said, “shall set you free.”
