Corona Virus has shaken the whole world, and Fear has taken over and may change our lives. What does this mean? Is it time to acknowledge the One true God? There is no doubt in my mind, and I boldly say yes! We need to acknowledge His existence, and that is His will. When Moses asked the name of God, He said to tell the Israelites, “I AM that I AM.” To date, many souls need to listen to their hearts and meditate on the valid message of the “I AM” God is transparent to those who earnestly seek His face.
Do not let your mind submit to fear when the earth stands still. The battle of the mind continues whether we like it, but we should never let Fear intervene with our good wishes. We should not give space to that little monster acting big and wanting to put our whole body down. This is not the end of the world but a sign of the ages to an end. Do not let religion collides with what is happening now because religion has its own interpretation. We must hold on to our faith that everything will be alright, that everything that God made is good, and that anything good is from God.
We must accept that we have offended Him with our daily routine on this troubled earth because of our sinful nature. We let bygone be bygone to get the satisfaction of our body. We lie, entertain fraudulent acts, bow down to temptations, and sometimes blame God for why He allowed terrible things to happen. We do not think that everything we do, we did because of the free will God has given us, and we abuse that free will.
This Corona Virus shakes the world. Everything seems to be on pause, and every government in the world has its way of controlling the spread of this evil virus; eventually, they will come to one accord, and victory to defeat the evil disease will come to pass.
This is the time to talk to oneself and ask, “What good did I do in this world that makes God happy? What do I need to do to make Him happy? The second question is the answer to the first. We think, mind speaking, that we go to church, listen to the Word, give Tithes, attend Sunday school, do Evangelism, and try to reach the lost souls. These are actions that well deserve to be recognized. There are so many ways we can be acknowledged for our excellent work, but it does not mean that we did a good job that will make God entirely delighted. We do not need to be a building to be a church, but we need to be a kingdom to govern our domain and administer God’s rule.
The Scripture says that only one believer in a family could make a whole household be saved. This Word does not point to one family but also addresses those who believe that good work has a reward. When we express to our household members what we believe, we already plant a good seed of the grace of salvation in their kingdom that will grow on its own until it ripens.
If we follow the pattern of what Jesus, the Son of God, did, it will guide us until we satisfactorily meet God’s delight. We must not let our minds give us second thoughts about the cross. We are not under the Romans’ rule to be nailed on the cross; neither the rule of the Romans nor the empire exists to this date.
We made our cross in many forms, such as being burdened with life desires, confusion about what to believe, hate that lingers with unforgiving hearts, failure to make our dreams come true, and envy for the fortune of others. Our selfishness makes our cross heavier to bear, and our stubbornness can make a significant impact; being alone can bring sadness as there’s nobody to turn to in times of consolation; being isolated is like having a contagious disease, and these are like having a heavy cross to lift.
Being judgmental, liars, deceptive, tempter, and everything we do that God hates is a cross on our shoulders. We should analyze, interpret, and then apply the outcome of the cross in our time. The cross could be an allegorical, metaphorical, or figurative term, but we would surely know by now that it is not a literal cross. We can think of many things about the cross, which can hurt our Christian way of life if we lack knowledge. We must remember that the cross is specially made for us to bear. If we cannot carry our newfound cross, turn to God for help.
The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God within us, is here to help and guide us. Now we set ourselves up in the love of God. Who can snatch us? The Fear of the Corona Virus, the daily attacker of our faith, or Fear only God? Who can destroy the soul and body? God’s love must be cherished, and His judgment must be feared. We fear God because we respect His love for us, and we fear Him because we do not want to offend Him.
The human government is talking to us now, and we follow, while God is directing us on what to do, like what we need to eat or drink, how to calm down in this situation, communicate with family, and give courage to each one. With the technology provided to us, it is very convenient that our communication with our loved ones is not halted. We see and talk to them on FaceTime, Instagram, call, or send an email. Our God allows us to have all these things for this kind of situation.
God’s crown of glory will put this Corona Virus come to pass. God will never leave or forsake us, which is His promise. There is one thing I want to tell you, the readers and believers, to please pass this message, share it, and like it, and we will be blessed for helping others to be in submission to the
One and Only God and no one else besides Him.
“I am the LORD; that is my name! I will not yield my glory to another or my praise to idols.” Isaiah 43:11—Yes, I am the LORD, and there is no Savior but Me. Isaiah 48:11—”For My own sake, My very own sake, I will act; for how can I let Myself be defamed? I will not yield My glory to another.” Exodus 34:14—”For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God” Exodus 20:3-5—”Thou shalt have no other gods before me…”, “Declare and set forth your case; Indeed, let them consult together. Who has announced this from of old? Who has long since declared it? Is it not I, the LORD? And there is no other God besides Me, A righteous God and a Savior; There is none except Me.” New American Standard Bible
Let us pray
Father, into your hands, we submit the situation right now, which we know you are very aware of; we humbly ask you to take this away and defeat this virus sooner. We ask that you forgive us if we have offended you; forgive those who have forgotten thee that we may continue to follow you and live to worship you.
LORD, we are in this predicament that we may have created, but we ask you, LORD, and you are the only one we can lean on in time like this; you are the only one who can take this virus away from us, the only one that can heal us and the only one that can lead us back to you. We also want to thank you, LORD, for shaking us and reminding us that few, if not many, are still keeping their distance away from Your glory and need to be shaken to remind us that the grace of salvation is near an end.
Father, we ask you to spare our family who is not fully ripe of your Word and those whose seeds have been planted and are waiting to be harvested at your appropriate time. So also, Father, we submit to You those who are misled by their ignorance or lack of knowledge of Your Word; You alone can change their heart, and we submit them to you, LORD of Host, with your mighty Son, Jesus Christ.
With all our heart and soul, we submit ourselves to Your glory. Let us be a blessing to others and share this knowledge for the work of the righteous avail a reward. As God Promised, “He will bless those who bless thee.” Acknowledge Him, and He will acknowledge us. God Bless!
