Yes!! We are all aware of the Coronavirus, but I do not wish to give it too much attention today in this post. I am by no means telling you not to prepare! BE PREPARED, but the difference in the times between now and other diseases like SARS back in 2003, is social media and propaganda. The difference is that now we have access to so much information so quickly that it's beginning to scare people. The concern I have is for God's people that do not know the power and authority that laying on the inside of you through CHRIST JESUS! The bible is the best source of advice, God already let us in on the times that we are in. We know that; we got it covered, but he also told us to fear not and not to be terrified. What I see on social media is people who are scared and terrified. Either we will believe God or we won't, which is I think what he means by the fervent church. I think what is going to separate the two churches will be our faith; what we choose to stand on. Either we will choose to stand on God's word or we don't. What came to my mind was spiritual warfare, I believe that believers are engaged in spiritual warfare right now when we see the chaos around us. I know people want us to believe that all spiritual warfare is just speaking in tongues, laying hands on people and casting out demons; but spiritual warfare also takes place in your mind. It's choosing to stand on God's word and refusing to be moved and refusing to move from where you stand spiritually. We are called to not back down when it comes to what the Lord has said in his word. Also, which is so important, and I hope you hear me well!!! Speak the word of the Lord over your life, children, and your home because God is clear when he said he gave us dominion and power over the things in this world. He says that his word will not return unto him void. Think about it like this... he said in this word that, in the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God and he can't deny himself. To further this statement God says that he is not a man that he should lie, now if we go back to Genesis when he said let us make man in our image he was talking about the abilities, the power, the very essence of him is all up and through his creation. If God created the heavens and the Earth by speaking, what makes you think you do not have the power to do that as well when he said that you were created in his image? Honestly, in this time, we will probably have to refrain from social media unless it's for business because when I see social media it seems to be fear-based; fear and faith just don't mix. You can not have both. God said he has not given you a spirit of fear but of POWER, LOVE, and a SOUND MIND, and that perfect LOVE cast out all fear. Now is not the time to have your faith shaken!
I HOPE EVERYONE WAS ENCOURAGED, EVEN IF IT JUST REACHES ONE!
PLEAD THE BLOOD, DECLARE THE WORD, AND WASH YOUR HANDS!!!!
