Pestilence is prevalent but God has not abandoned His people.
I haven’t written in a while, I’ve been watching and praying. I see total breakdown of societal norms, I see chaos and fear and the result. I see Churches who are known for surrounding the sick, the terrified, and the disaster stricken, now closing their doors because of fear of a virus or pestilence. At a time when the world needs Christ and His Father, churches are closing their doors. Let that sink in. I read an article today that was titled, “Christ in quarantine.” Did Christ quarantine Himself from the Leper colony? Did the Apostles stay away from Lepers or other diseased people? Would Christ act in the manner His church is acting? I think not. Shame on those closing their doors or ignoring the sick. I refuse to live my life in fear. In fact, the Bible tells us God did not give us a spirit of fear. Disease has been prophesied, are we told to hide in caves? No, it is only the unbelievers who hide in caves. Revelation reveals that. Yes, the China virus is serious, yes take precautions and take care of yourself, but fear has caused nothing but panic. The hoarding of hygiene supplies is a sin against humanity. Period. Whether they hoard out of selfishness, or gluttony it’s a sin. It takes away from those who are in need. I watched as parents who waited until they were paid to restock daily hygiene items like diapers, toilet paper, baby wipes and even over the counter children’s medicine find empty shelves. I watched in sadness while parents were horrified that their child’s cough would be met with over-reaction. One article does say that e-bay and amazon shut down accounts of those attempting to sell these items on line at unreasonable prices.
And then we see 24/7 coverage of what the media has labeled the apocalypse. Instilling nothing but fear and chaos.
Today is a National Day Of Prayer as declared by President Trump. I am in prayer for our Nation. Not only for a viral pandemic but for repentance and a calm spirit. I pray for God to protect His people. But God does not quarantine Himself. God is present. It’s not hyperbole, our society is in breakdown. Stop, take a breath don’t let the Democratic media frenzy cause more chaos.
I’m watching now the Chicago mayor and she looks and is speaking like she is either completely terrorfied or on speed. It’s absolutely insane. We know how to care for ourselves, we have the best medical providers in the world. We do not need Government to protect us. The frenzy they have created is unfathomable. Turn to God, help each other and do not panic! Panic will bring us into a police state. Is that what you want? Complete societal breakdown? Pray!
Psalm 34:4 I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
