The plague of the Corona Virus
It was written the time would come
The corona virus has come a long way in affecting the entire world. Its global impact has caused hunger, isolation and lots of anxiety. Now, what’s its cause and its solution? Yes, China, nature etc. However, what’s its spiritual cause of this virus? This plague (because that’s what it is, a plague) is written in the bible. Now, Jesus warned us this time would come; however, who thought the 21st century would witness it? Does God have to bring a plague to catch our attention?
So, it is written:“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. 2 Chronicles 7:13-15
“I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book.”Revelations 22:18
Its Spiritual Cause
God cries for the nations every single day when one seeks their own desires instead of seeking him. When one stresses and over thinks things that have no meaning instead of bowing down in prayer and waiting for his direction. Daily sinful habits have brought our nations to this disaster. There are many people, a thousand by ten million sinning a day instead of reaching out to God, praying, worshiping and seeking his glory. United, we have brought this plague upon ourselves. Just as God is like thin air; whom cannot be seen, so is the supernatural spiritual world. Every action has a consequence and our sinful habits have come upon thin air; causing deaths, oppression and despair. This is reality people. Whether you accept it or not, that’s up to you. However, God has brought this upon us to catch our attention like in the times of Noah’s Ark or the times of Leprosy.
The panic and people’s reaction
Now, many people are losing their minds by buying water, toilet paper and other products ; as if it were to be the solution. Fighting and stabbing each other for majority of products, yelling and screaming; really people? What’s wrong with the world? Is this how God wants his children to react? Are we even his children with such attitude and reactions? Be civilized, be ethical; where are our morals, principles and values? Unfortunately, it’s the spirit of fear that has come over the earth. Fear however, is part of worry; which is the opposite of faith. Where is the nation’s faith? Have we forgotten what faith is? “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1 Though our eyes may see otherwise, it only takes belief in Jesus Christ that things are already in control; because things will always be in control when left in God’s hands. However, when one has no faith but lives off fear and anxiety, things are not left in his hands and disasters will arise. Believe, all it takes is to believe!!!!
What to do
We are the solution to this plague; just as we were the cause. We brought it and it’s up to the” Body of Christ” to remove it with prayer, fasting and getting closer to Him.
So, it is written; “Go, my people, enter your rooms
and shut the doors behind you;
hide yourselves for a little while
until his wrath has passed by.” Isiah 26:20
So, it is written; “This kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” Mathew 17:21
Then it'll come to pass
Once the “Body of Christ” changes their own ways and Israel (meaning you and I) changes as well, then the earth will stop weeping as God’s cry and wrath will vanish. If we unite by seeking him from now on; in good and in bad and change our ways; then our future holds a better consequence. However, it takes self sacrifice such as leaving habits, ways of speaking, ignoring God and much more. We must first of all change our heart and forgive those who have hurt us. Get close to your family, cook home meals, spend time to communicate etc.
We are the problem, wake up people
We all fall in this category whether we believe it or not. As simple as relying on mankind for a solution to this virus is falling into idolatry, having a sexual thought about someone is adultery, getting a dollar off the ground is stealing, cursing someone is killing their spirit and the list goes on and on. One says "But I am good, I do not steal, kill, nor lie." However, in the spiritual world, it has been applied. We are all not worthy of God's grace and mercy. The least we can do is apologize and surrender it all to him. Would it kill us to spend more time with him? Yes, it would kill our time with our "friends"or our time "watching social media. Oh please people, wake up! This isn't about religion nor theology. This is about living in the spiritual word of God.
