There are so many opinions and assumptions that are circulating on social media and the news networks about what’s going on in our world today. There has been an innumerable number of questions and unbiblical answers concerning COVID-19 that has been saturating our world.
For something that has been as unprecedented as this Coronavirus has been, surely the Holy Bible says something about it? In fact, it speaks explicitly about the effects that this virus will have on our world. Although it doesn’t specifically call it by name, it does state what the conditions of the world will be at the time of Christ’s return.
Just do a word search in the bible app of your choice for the word, “Written.” You will find that this word starts appearing in the Old Testament and proceeds throughout the New Testament. God allowed His word to be written as a binding document to affirm His vision for mankind. Could it be this is why Jesus often says, “It is written”?
This phraseology of, “It is Written” refers to the vision that God has concerning the restoration of mankind after the fall of Adam in the Garden of Eden. God states that the only Way mankind will be completely restored was man must now eat of the Tree of Life, also known as Jesus Christ. He allowed it to be written to serve as the official instruction manual for mankind. There’s a reason why the Holy Bible is the #1 best-selling book in the world.
There was a time whenever you purchased something, it always came with instructions on how to operate or assemble, if assembly was necessary. Nowadays, with the rise of products being sold to America from overseas, this is not always the case. I hate it when I purchase something online and it arrives with no operation or assembly instructions. To save on cost, they sometimes do not include instructions, assuming you will figure it out.
I’m so glad God is not like this. He gave us a step by step instruction manual on how to be restored. God made it so simple, that a child can embrace it.
BELIEVE. Believe that God is real and believe that He is a Rewarder to them that diligently seek Him. That’s the starting point. If this is your foundation and if you earnestly strive to follow the instructions He gives us in the Holy Bible, then thou and thy entire household shall be saved from the pending judgement of sin.
God told the Prophet Habakkuk to write the vision and make it plain, that he that reads it may run with it. In other words, make it so plain that he that reads it, may easily understand it and then he/she would be so inclined that they would share it with others.
Also, God told the Prophet Habakkuk that the vision was for an appointed time and at the end it shall speak, and it shall not lie. Now, we have come towards the end of God’s vision
One can either choose to accept God’s love and be saved or they may choose to reject Him and be damned. Plain and simple. Christians must stop trying to sugar-coat it and tell it like it is. If a person is sincerely trying to follow God, then God will help them and His grace shall be sufficient for them. But the days of playing with the grace of God and then stating, “God know my heart” are over. Institutional Religion is coming to a close. Why you think God allowed all of these church buildings to close down? Jesus said, “My house is to be called a House of Prayer, and you have turned it into a den of thieves.”
Most church buildings have turned into entertainment centers where people gather to be entertained under the auspice of Christian fellowship. Everything from holding rock-star like, gospel concerts with the sophisticated light shows and smoke machines to so-called Christian comedians making mockery of the worship experience to the thunderous laughter of the congregants. This has been going on for years and no one was convicted by their wayward ways.
Well, God gave them a space of time to correct it, but it got worse and worse and continued to spread throughout mainstream Christianity. Now God is speaking and the message is very clear.
There are many in the Christian community who have not fully embraced this message, because it contradicts everything that they have built or are endeavoring to build. However, if conditions continue like this for at least 6+ more months, many will wake up and smell the proverbial coffee.
In closing, please know that I’m not seeking for anyone to embrace this revelation that I believe God has given me. However, I challenge you to take the Bible in one hand and take the newspaper in the other hand, read them and then tell me what you think. Coincidence? I think not!
