“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than a two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart” Heb 4:12. The world is in panic mode, nations upon nations are in turmoil because of a virus that is at this time deemed uncontrollable,unstoppable, creating great fear and raveging the people of the earth.
How did we get here? In times past when the people of God separated themselves from the leading of God’s spirit and wrapped themselves in ungodly behavior; they became greedy, cheating each other in daily transaction. They practiced idol worship, adultery, and injustice to their brethren. There leaders were corrupt, leading them away from God’s moral laws. Unfortunately, their actions caused God to look away from them.
His judgement fell, many died and many became captives to other nations; the rain ceased to fall, crops no longer yielded a harvest and the land became desolate. Have you stopped to ask yourself, are we under the judgement of God? Have we become so disobedient he has turned his face away from us? We know that every good and perfect gift comes from above, so where has this plague come from?
Satan, the dragon, evil one is ruler of this world, without God’s protection; we are at his mercy but, we know he is ruthless and knows no mercy. The penalty for sin is death, he wants this for mankind; we must remember man was created in the image of his Creator with whom Satan is at war, to destroy the earth his goal. God not willing to give up on his people could not stay displeased with them and made a plan of salvation.
His love for his creation was to strong to leave them under the power of the enemy. Just as soon as prayers for deliverance went up to the throne of grace, deliverance was granted to his people. We have turned from God’s moral laws to embrace greedy leaders, men of immoral characters, false christianity, hatred, violence against each other , and lies from the enemy about God’s character.
We have become so caught up in the politics of this world we fail to realize we are pawns of the enemy. Our political views have become more important whether a elephant or donkey we are so sure our side is the right side, losing sight on the fact that God’s side is the most important side to be on. As people of God our concern should be more about how he sees us and how we reflect his love rather than the political party we affiliate with.
This virus should cause us to stop, reassess our lives, and consider who we are walking hand in hand with. God the Father has said”fear not,for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand Isaiah 4:21. Have you come to the realization that the people of God in times past came to? Do you realize it’s time to pray?
“For if my people who are called by my name would humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sins, and I will heal their lands. Our God is the antidote for this virus, people of God, IT’S TIME TO PRAY.
My revelation as I sit by the pool of grace.
