What Do We Do Now About This Advancing Pestilence – COVID-19?
This COVID-19 virus is getting seemingly worse and many are making light of the graveness of this infection. This virus can kill people and IMO it’s a pestilence that Jesus warned us of in the Scriptures. We as Christians, people of the Book, followers of Christ, warriors armed with Holy Writ will NOT bow down do this virulent, hidden beast of an enemy. Instead “Be strong in the Lord and in the Power of His might” – Eph 6:10.
The Lord God Almighty gave us the Scriptures so we could learn by them and know what to do in the times we are in right now. Let’s take for example what happened to the Israelite’s in Numbers 16. Please take a moment to read…
Now, Korah and his crew were rebelling against God’s anointed leader Moses, so the Lord took care of them in swallowing up all 250 of them including men, women and children. After this justice of the Lord was accomplished, the rest of the congregation of the people of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron for what they did or brought upon the Korah followers. The Lord was angry and told Moses to depart from them because he was going to destroy them …“and the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 45 “Get away from the midst of this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment.”.The Lord was ticked off at them and wanted to destroy all of this congregation. (Don’t forget, the Lord is loving, kind and merciful but … He does have limits and His patience can run out). Has it now run out on the world…?
So Moses, the anointed man of God, told Aaron to go and fill his censor, put fire on it then lay incense on that and go and make atonement for the people for God’s wrath had gone out upon them.
“And Moses said to Aaron, “Take your censer, and put fire on it from off the altar and lay incense on it and carry it quickly to the congregation and make atonement for them, for wrath has gone out from the Lord; the plague has begun.” -vs46
Incense to God is today can be referenced to the prayers of the saints (Rev 8:4). So Aaron went and did this and stood between the living and the dead and the plague stopped. Still 14,700 died but the plague (pestilence) was ceased. God stopped it but why?
Because Moses stood in the gap for the rebellious and grumbling people. Is this any different from today’s society? No! We complain in every way possible. We don’t read our Bibles. We play church. We do not harbor an attitude of gratitude, and we cast off love for idols, wealth and position. America, along with this world, has rejected God, poked Him squarely in the eye through rebellion and through worshiping other gods, and therefore have provoked His anger.
If there is any way to make this COVID-19 stop it’s through sincere, heart-felt, no-kidding, serious PRAYER and REPENTANCE for our sin. President Trump needs to lead this nation along with all of Congress (on their knees) in prayer to God to stop this plague. But until that happens, we can stand in the gap for our nation, city, town, family or county through constant prayer. This is the only way this will stop!
Please people, pray! Today, tonight, tomorrow and until our censors filled with our prayers reach the nostrils of Almighty God. Take this to heart everyone, don’t scoff, believe and be set free!
Consider this personal prayer from Psalm 91 (KJV):
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
Fear God and shun evil
