A thousand may fall at your side,Psalms 91:7-16
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
With everything going on around the world about coronavirus, it is the most important time for believers of Christ to be firm in our faith. In spite of people rebelling against the ways of God, the world is still watching us- the church, and looking to us for miracles signs and wonders, or even just calmness in the storm. In times of trouble, believers of Christ should have a solid biblical foundation to stand on when the world is in pandemonium.
If we look deeper than what the news and television is reporting, we will come into the truth. A biological weapon can still be defused by the Holy Spirit. If we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12) and Fools, because of their rebellious way, And because of their iniquities, were afflicted (Psalms 107:17) then we will see the problem is not a biological or physical weapon, but a spiritual one. It’s an indication of sickness. Sin. Even disbelief and unbelief in the power of God is considered rebellious and spiritual sickness. A defiled fleshly mindset only says God, cannot. But James 2:19 says, “ You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror.”
Before the news reported this “virus”, before mass hysteria took over you were walking around perfectly fine. But because someone has told you, you are sick, some of you have made up in your mind that you feel sick. “Who has bewitched you” (Galatians 3:1-3). The power of your belief is causing anxiety and fear. The Bible says, “fear not, for I AM with you” (Isaiah 41:10). If the media can cause you to question the word of God, which states, “they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”- Mark 16:18. Then you’re following the voice of the world and not the voice of The Father.
God is calling us to be leaders, and we lead in our every day reactions and expressions of what’s happening to us and around the world. Our response should be within the word of God, calm and controlled, because there is protection underneath the arms of the Father. Remember, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Yeshua/ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6-7
We should believe in the word of God and the power of our Lord. His word does not return void (Isaiah 55:11), and, “The righteous person faces many troubles, but the LORD comes to the rescue each time.”- Psalms 34:19. Every believer should be on post, praying, worshiping God and continuing on with their lives without showing panic and fear.
These are the birthing pangs, and there is so much more to come. Turn the TV off and open the Bible for the truth. Endure til the end.
