Does The Bible Speak of “The Mask”?

Updated: Jan 26, 2021

To be quite frank, like many of you, I’ve been extremely disturbed by this topic from the very beginning. I have wondered what it is about these silly masks that The Lord won’t leave me alone about until I fully understand it?

Immediately when these mask mandates came out I had major checks in my spirit about them. But I set it aside as we are eagerly expecting a mighty move of God and an end time revival that will sweep the world. I chose not to wear them and we have been fasting, praying, and watching the Hand of The Lord move in a mighty way. Promises of His Glory and outpouring are being received regularly. But what is it about this masked culture that disturbs me I wondered? Could it be that these masks are in some way connected to or in some way opposing this coming end time revival or the outpouring of the GLORY of YHVH?

As I was praying into this I received a prophetic word from a trusted friend who hears very clearly from The Lord. The Lord spoke to her in a time of worship that there is a reason why I have been so opposed to the masks and that The Lord would reveal it.

So why am I opposed to healthy people being forced to wear these masks?

Is it because I don’t care about public health? No, I certainly do care very much about people and public health. Is it because I don’t love my neighbors? Of course not, I love my neighbors and I love people very much! So is it because I’m rebellious? After all, there are some pastors and leaders that have been quoting Romans 13 and other scriptures that tell us to obey worldly authorities... many of them have even stated that we will come under judgment if we do not obey the mask mandate. Some have stated that we should even ignore checks in our spirit because scripture is so clear about it. Hmm... really? No, that’s not it. I love and respect authority and always want to live in peace as I obey the laws of the land to the best of my ability.

The Changing Narrative

So what is it about these masks that so disturbs me and others to the point that it won’t leave us alone? Was it the alarming zombie like blind acceptance of this “new normal” that raised serious questions? Perhaps. Maybe it was the spirit of confusion that surrounded this topic?

Public experts like the head of the CDC, the US surgeon general and Fauci all said in the beginning that people should not wear a mask as they are not effective to stop C-vid. But then later they changed the narrative:

“They work, they don’t work, you should wear them, you shouldn’t wear them, only doctors should wear them, wait... NOW EVERYONE MUST WEAR THEM! Wear them or else you will get fined, also you can’t buy or sell without wearing your mask!" Wait, what?! Hold up.

James 1:8 says:

“A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

Does this really sound like the spirit that God commands us to follow? Is this what He meant when he said that we should obey authority?

1 John 4:1-6 says this:

“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us.

This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.”

The Masking Agenda

Are the head of the CDC, the Surgeon General, Fauci and other government leaders giving these orders operating under the Spirit of Antichrist? Perhaps it was this clear spirit of deception that was urging me so strongly that something is VERY WRONG with this masking agenda. Now don’t get me wrong - I don’t believe masks in themselves are bad - in fact I understand the science and that they can be effective in situations to help slow the spread. It’s the forced agenda of manipulation and confusion that so disturbs me. Whatever the case may be, I kept praying about it and asking The Lord:

Father, I want to obey your Word and I want to respect authority as you desire... so why is it that I am so disturbed about these masks? Why won’t this topic leave me alone?

Lord, why are so many spirit filled believers so opposed to this mask if it is for our “public health” and the greater good? There has to be something deeper here beyond the civil rights violations for so many to be so disturbed in the spirit. Please show me what is hidden and expose it in the light.

I was alarmed when I started hearing propaganda like “Love your neighbor, wear a mask”. This is alarming propaganda. What they are saying, very manipulatively, is that if you don’t wear a mask you don’t love your neighbor. This is a lie, a deceptive and subversive lie.

It became very clear to me that this unlawful mandate to forcefully oppress the public into wearing a mask through fear tactics, manipulation and peer pressure was rooted in something beyond what the natural man could understand.

For the first time in history most of the developed world has been thrust into a “new normal” that ignores logic and omits personal health choices involving our bodies. Manipulation and control is everywhere and it is these mechanisms that are the dominant forces in witchcraft; specifically the Jezebel spirit. We are to have nothing to do with witchcraft.


Ephesians‬ ‭5:11-15, 17

“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.

This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise,

Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.”

The Lord began to speak to me about this spell casting and sorcery being a manipulative form of mind control that is conditioning the people to surrender their God-given rightful authority.

I believe that the governments are grooming the people and preparing them for much more serious and nefarious issues. The Lord impressed me to look up this word:


- When a sexual or other kind of predator sets the stage for abusing another, such as a child or other person (as in the case of sex and theory human trafficking).

- Trust: May give toys and/or other gifts and favors to the intended victim to gain trust.

- Alienation: Settings the stage for the intended victim to become alienated from their primary caregivers/circles or family and community.

- Fear/dependency: Sets up a power dynamic in which the victim feels too afraid to report the abuse, perhaps by involving the victim in activities their friends and family might judge the victim negatively for, such as drug use (or even the abuse itself).

I believe that this divide and conquer agenda of fear and alienation by forced lockdowns is a clear grooming process that the world is being forced into in preparation for a much more sinister plot. But don’t take my word for it. I encourage everyone to pray about this and to do your own extensive research.

Clarity From The Lord

As I began my research initiative in prayer and looking into the bible for answers to this difficult and divisive topic, I began to receive clarity from the Lord and clear answers to my questions. I spent weeks fasting and praying for clarity on this topic. Here is what I found:

What I believe the government is really saying when they tell the world population that everyone must wear a mask - or receive a fine - or threatened with jail is: “We have authority over your body”.

What they appear to be saying here is that the era of those past freedoms are over and now people must blindly obey them without question, against logic and regardless of personal convictions. You obey or you will suffer the consequences. Big brother rules.

So why are Messianic leaders and Christian pastors so eagerly accepting this? Why are they doubling down on their promotion and insistence on the wearing of masks being “good for us”, a “great way to pray and minister” and “show our love” even saying that these masks are mandated to the believer by the Bible. Does the bible speak to mask wearing? Yes, but not in the way you might have previously read or expected. And certainly not through the misuse of the Romans 13 verse and others on obeying authority. The believer is taught to obey government and worldly authority only to the degree that authority is given to that governing body, and only to the degree that it doesn’t violate the commands of God or the Word of God. The believer in YHVH and follower of Yeshua must always submit FIRST to God.

What did Peter and the apostles say when they were ordered by men in authority not to preach in the Name of Yeshua? “We must obey God rather than any human authority”.

As we can also clearly see from Daniel: It was Darius who was tricked by Daniel's rivals into signing a decree banning for one month any petition to a god or man except Darius. Daniel ignored the edict. His fear of God far outweighed his fear of men. As he always did three times a day, Daniel opened his windows toward Jerusalem, where he knew the Spirit of God had dwelled in Solomon's temple, and he prayed as all of us should. "He might have compromised his integrity by ceasing to pray to God during the month the decree was in effect—or by praying privately, perhaps in the night, when no one could see him worshiping at his window," writes Gleason Archer in The Expositor's Bible Commentary. "To rationalize such compromises to preserve his role in government would have been easy. But Daniel could not compromise. For him the issue was whether he was going to please man or obey God."

So does the government have authority over our body? No, they do not. Here’s why:

Our bodies are not our own. They are temples of the Holy Spirit and they belong to GOD. ‭‭

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭6:19-20‬ ‭ESV‬‬

The government has 0 authority over your body. But they do want you to give up this authority to them by submitting to a process of surrender. You see, you must willingly give them the authority because the authority is yours unless you relinquish it. This actually reminds me of a Word of The Lord that I received in April. I often hear The Holy Spirit speak to me clearly, but this was different - it was The Word of The Lord and it dropped on me like a weight from Heaven. This is what I heard Him say:


I shared this several times over the past few months in writing and videos. But it continues to grow stronger in my spirit and more urgent as I hear the Words of a loving Father warning His children of the demonic agenda that is unfolding upon the Earth. Could it be that The Lord is warning us not to give up our rightful authority to a scheme of deception by the enemy to steal authority that does not belong to him?

The remnant of believers are in agreement that all of the signs Yeshua gave in Matthew 24 about His soon return are unfolding in rapid speed and divine convergence. So what do we know about this time period? For one, it will be marked by great deception.

‭‭2 Thessalonians‬ ‭2:9-12‬

“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works.

He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing.

They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.”

The mask is a clear sign that keeps the lie alive. It serves the lie. It keeps the deception active as it visibly reminds everyone constantly that there is a terrible pandemic that will kill us all and that we must be afraid and that the world must be shut down so that we have to enter a new paradigm / “new normal” that consists of blind obedience and submission to demonic and tyrannical orders. ‭

We also know from Matthew 24 that even the elect (chosen, pastors, leaders, high-up) might become deceived in these end times.

“For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭24:24‬

What does the bible say about the word 'mask'? Where is it used and in what context?

In order to truly understand this topic we must look at the Hebrew. Fortunately I am fluent in Hebrew so it helped in my research on this topic. I wanted to see what scripture has to say about this, and I found that there are several places in the Hebrew bible that the word 'mask' is used:

The Hebrew word for Mask - 'MASECHA - מסכה'

The Biblical definition of MASECHA - 'a covering, a molten image'

A mask is an object that covers part or all of the face, sometimes even part of the head, and sometimes even the entire head. The mask serves as a marker for characterization in community events such as religious ceremonies in Western and non-Western cultures (African and Eastern countries). The origin of the word 'mask' is probably from the Latin word 'Masca' which means 'ghost', and from Western, which means 'man in disguise'.

So what should you do? Use wisdom. Be careful and use good hygiene practices. If you feel you must wear a mask, then wear one with the understanding of what this is all about. Oppose this unlawful order in healthy ways. Don’t conform to the pattern of this world. Understand that this is only the beginning and that it’s not really about a mask. It’s about total control. It’s about your body. It’s about the antichrist New World Order and your compliance or rejection of it. It’s not the masks that are the problem. It is the government forcing them on us that is the problem. Don’t take my word for it. Do the research and take it to The Lord.

As I list the verses below from the Bible you will notice a clear pattern that every single reference where the word 'Masecha' (mask) is used, it's mentioned in context with lies and deception - a molten image, an idol - or false gods.

The Word Masecha / מסכה (mask) is found in these verses below:

1. ‭‭Havakuk (Hab)‬ ‭2:18‬ ‭CJB

“What good is an idol, once its maker has shaped it, a cast metal image and a teacher of lies, that its maker puts his trust in it, and goes on making non-gods, unable to talk?”

‎​יח מה-הועיל פסל כי פסלו יצרו מסכה ומורה שקר כי בטח יצר יצרו עליו לעשות אלילים אלמים:

2. ISAIAH 30:1

“Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin"

* הוי בנים סוררים נאמ־יהוה לעשׂות עצה ולא מני ולנסך מסכה ולא רוחי למען ספות חטאת על־חטאת

3. EXODUS 34:17

"Thou shalt make thee no molten gods."

‎אלהי מסכה לא תעשׂה־לך

A word for word translation could also read like this:

"Thou shalt make thee no mask"

4. EXODUS 32:8

“They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.”

סרו מהר מנ־הדרך אשׁר צויתם עשׂו להם עגל

מסכה וישׁתחוו־לו ויזבחו־לו ויאמרו אלה אלהיך ישׂראל אשׁר העלוך מארץ מצרים

5. ‭‭Yesha 'yahu (Isa)‬ ‭25:7‬ ‭CJB

“On this mountain he will destroy the veil (mask) which covers the face of all peoples, the veil enshrouding all the nations.”‬‬ ‎​

ז ובלע בהר הזה פני-הלוט | הלוט על-כל-העמים והמסכה הנסוכה על-כל-הגוים


“And I looked , and, behold, ye had sinned against the LORD your God, and had made you a molten calf : ye had turned aside quickly out of the way which the LORD had commanded you.

וארא והנה חטאתם ליהוה אלהיכם עשׂיתם לכם עגל מסכה סרתם מהר מנ־הדרך אשׁר־צוה יהוה אתכם

7. JUDGES 17:3

“And when he had restored the eleven hundred shekels of silver to his mother, his mother said, I had wholly dedicated the silver unto the LORD from my hand for my son, to make a graven image and a molten image : now therefore I will restore it unto thee.

וישׁב את־אלפ־ומאה הכסף לאמו ותאמר אמו הקדשׁ הקדשׁתי את־הכסף ליהוה מידי לבני לעשׂות פסל ומסכה ועתה אשׁיבנו לך

In conclusion

There are certainly a lot of things to pray about. More than anything, the purpose of this post is to get people to think, pray, research and question things that might not be what they are pretending to be. Everyone should make their own decisions about what they should or shouldn’t do.

Most importantly, everyone should follow the leading of the Holy Spirit and hear directly from The Lord on all complex situations. We should not allow this issue or others to be a point of division and judgment, rather we should pray for understanding and grace towards everyone.

In the near future we will be faced with many difficulties and even greater deceptions. It is important to question things and make educated decisions from critical thinking and spiritual discernment. Obviously, Masks in themselves are not the problem. It is the forced agenda and spirit behind it that is the problem.
