Did you know their is a difference between a believer and an unbeliever in Jesus?
When we look to the bible it says that perfect love casts out all fear.
In Psalm 91 it says that we can be protected from the devil by not giving in to fear.
The devil operates on fear. Once will are filled with faith we will not be in a place of fear.
The Truth About Coronavirus
Before we start going into faith, its a good idea to understand what it is you may be afraid of. God did not make coronavirus. It is not a God-made disease. Everything that is not from God is from the devil.
The reason so many people are afraid of coronavirus is because of the media. The media and news channels are telling everyone to be afraid of the virus. Once you hear something enough, it can start to impact you.
The truth is coronavirus will not kill anyone. The disease that results from it can be fatal. This disease is called COVID-19. At present, most people with coronavirus will not die. In most nations of the world you have a 1% chance of COVID-19 causing death if you happen to catch coronavirus. The 1% often have a condition that causes death. This may be damage to your lungs from smoking, being obese or having asthma.
The Fear of Coronavirus is Greater than the Facts
The media has made many people afraid of COVID-19. Many people feel they are going to get coronavirus. What basis in truth does this really have? As I write this today we are seeing that the fear the media spoke is not coming to reality. We have not seen an increase in deaths world wide in total numbers from this virus.
Obviously for anyone who has lost someone from the coronavirus, our love and prayers go out to you as you deal with your loss. We don’t want to downplay that some people have been killed. It is always a terrible thing and a difficult thing to deal with.
However the fact remains, more people died from TB in 2018 that deaths we have currently had from the coronavirus. It was thought that TB was eradicated. Unfortunately that is not true.
TB is a disease that we have vaccinations for and we have cures using antibiotics however it is still a deadly disease.
What does this all mean? It means the world has not changed. Coronavirus being in the world has not caused it to change. Fear of coronavirus has changed the world. Who is the author of this fear? The devil, he is your adversary. He wants everyone dead or in fear and trauma.
Agents of Fear
The media has become an agent of fear. This relates clearly to the scriptures. Matthew 24:6-8 tells us that we will see rumours of wars and plagues in the last days.
COVID-19 is not one of the seven plagues mentioned in the Book of Revelation. COVID-19 could be one of the horrible epidemics that need to take place that mark the beginning of the end. The evidence is highly probable that COVID-19 is one of these signs because it is largely a rumour and deception.
Latest Information from the World Heath Organisation (WHO)
In a WHO report, Cardiovascular Diseases are the number 1 cause of death globally: more people die annually from CVDs than from any other cause. An estimated 17.9 million people died from CVDs in 2016, representing 31% of all global deaths. This number is expected to go up to 23.6 million by 2030. Of these deaths, 85% are due to heart attack and stroke.
2017 – 2018 statistics from WHO
Recent studies in 2017 show that on average, someone dies of Cardiovascular Diseases every 37 seconds in the U.S. There are 2,353 deaths from CVD each day.
The same study shows that on average, someone dies of a stroke every 3.59 minutes in the U.S. There are about 401 deaths from stroke each day.
Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally, and is responsible for an estimated 9.6 million deaths in 2018. That is approximately 26,666 people dying every day due to cancer. Globally, about 1 in 6 deaths is due to cancer.
On average, someone dies of tuberculosis every 20 seconds around the world. Approximately 1.2 million people die of tuberculosis every year
In the most recent survey in 2018, an estimated 10 million people fell ill with tuberculosis (TB) worldwide. 5.7 million men, 3.2 million women and 1.1 million children. There were cases in all countries and age groups. But TB is curable and preventable. And about 2 people infected with COVID-19 die every minute. And the recovery rate is increasing by the day. It is 21.3% currently and that is a good positive number to look forward to.
This is not a callous attitude
This is not a callous attitude towards the people who are dying but rather an effort to open our eyes to the factual realities. The media reports should not make us agitated. This is an effort to show people that we should not focus on the crumbling world around. We should focus and turn our eyes on Jesus and walk in faith.
Now that we know the symptoms of COVID-19 people tend to freak out when they seem to have a cough or a cold. But remember as long as you keep your eyes only on Jesus, the only Redeemer and Protector WE WILL NOT BE AFFECTED.
Do not hand over your Freedom!
Nothing can harm, defeat or kill us, as the children of God.
Nobody, neither people nor the government take away your freedom from you. Your freedom to worship, your freedom to believe and not fear, your freedom to let God’s power to work through you so that you can testify His word to those who fear and to the unbelievers.
Your freedom is your right
You deserve to be free. Do not conform to the pattern of this world and hand in your freedom on a platter with trembling hands. Because once you hand over your freedom in fear you become vulnerable, vulnerable to the people or the government who you thought had the power to control and handle all adversities.
Your vulnerability will be used to manipulate your environment to their liking according to the limitations of their understanding. So, do not be negligent, rather stand firm in your faith and hold on to your freedom till God displays his power through you. Until then stand for what is right and preach the truth. Step up and be what God called you to be, walking in faith that he has given you.
Now is the time for your arrogant and violent faith to arise.
People are being marked and beaten in Hyderabad, India
These days the impositions are getting so strange that families in Hyderabad are stamped on their arms and threatened not to come out of their homes. If they do they will be met with brute force and weapons. What a world we live in. We do not treat people with TB like this. We don’t treat people with influenza like this and yet in both cases the risk to our community is greater.
Everyday people are beaten with canes by policeman who spot them wandering out of their homes. To top it all off the media encourages people to be beaten for not obeying the curfew. Wearing of masks has become compulsory. But in actuality it is the infected who are supposed to wear masks.
This is just the beginning of the end-times
Isaiah 26:20 that says, “Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by”. I hear Christians quoting this as an excuse to comply with the government. Do not comply with what the devil is trying to do. The devil wants to create fear and manipulate the world to his liking. He will go to whatever extent is necessary. This means he will even manipulate our authorities to take our freedom and stop us worshipping Jesus
Do not fear
But how can we not fear? It’s a pandemic?! Is it really a pandemic? If it is we have always been in a pandemic since the day you were born. The world has not changed.
This means the faith that protected you yesterday, will protect you today and tomorrow.
The separation between the believers and the unbelievers
In Exodus 12 we learn about passover.
Many years ago in the nation of Egypt, the blood on the doorposts of the Israelite’s separated them from the Egyptians. When the Angel of Death came, he passed over them believers. The Lord did not strike the firstborns of the marked houses.
Ever since our Lord Jesus shed his precious blood on the cross, we have his blood marked as a covenant on our spiritual door posts in our lives. It means that NOTHING by any means shall harm us, EVER!
The blood separates us
If the blood of the lamb separated the Israelite’s from the Egyptians, then the blood of Jesus separates us from the unbelievers.
Exodus 12: 13 says, ‘The blood will be a sign for you in the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt’. And if the blood of the lamb on the doorposts was able to protect the firstborns of Israel, will the blood of Jesus not protect us from any destructive plague?
Reflections on Psalms 91
Psalm 91 is a glowing testimony to the security of those who trust in God.
Your refuge is Jesus Christ
The whole chapter depends on verse 9 that is IF YOU SAY, “The LORD is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling (then) no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. The Most High is Jesus Christ. Your refuge is not the vaccination, not the doctors, or the hospitals.
If you believe in God, he will protect you. Period!
In Psalms 91:10 the word says ‘he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways’. This means that each of us have an angel who is responsible to take care and protect us. The Lord commands them to guard us at all times. The angels themselves are not praised and worshipped.
Many people tend to think that the angels are above us, but in reality the angels are below us.
They are our guardians; their job is to protect us and they are constantly at work protecting us, thereby drawing a line of separation between us and the unbelievers.
God has never told any angel that you are my son and I am your Father. Rather, he has called us his children (1 John 3:1); we are the sons and daughters of the Father. We are his priority.
And won’t a father stick to his word and take care of his children?
The devil operates on your fear
If God can operate on your faith then the devil can operate on your fear.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the big pharmaceutical companies work on a principle called the “Business of Fear”. The underlying strategy is to mint money off of us by starting to instil fear and panic in the society. Society gets into the frenzy of ‘Panic Buying’ of medicine or vaccines to save lives at whatever costs. Thus, these pharmaceutical companies profit from selling the medicines which are on high demand. Therefore, the virus has become an agent of fear.
Strip away the power of the devil
Now on turning to the scriptures in Colossians 2:14-15 it says, ‘Everything we once were in Adam has been placed onto his cross and nailed permanently there as a public display of cancellation. Then Jesus made a public spectacle of all the powers and principalities of darkness, stripping away from them every weapon and all their spiritual authority and power to accuse us’. This speaks of stripping away all the authority of the devil by cancelling it at the cross.
But in Ephesians 2:1-2 it says, ‘…even though you were once like corpses, dead in your sins and offenses. It wasn’t that long ago that you lived in the religion, customs, and values of this world, obeying the dark ruler of the earthly realm who fills the atmosphere with his authority, and works diligently in the hearts of those who are disobedient to the truth of God. The corruption that was in us from birth was expressed through the deeds and desires of our self – life. We lived by whatever natural cravings and thoughts our minds dictated, living as rebellious children subject to God’s wrath like everyone else’. We see that the dark ruler of the earthly realm is given authority to work diligently in the hearts of people.
Has God cancelled the Authority of the devil?
How is it that God cancels the authority of the devil one time in Colossians and gives it back in Ephesians?
The answer lies in the second half of the bolded scripture verse. It is true that the devil has been stripped-off of his authority to manipulate God’s children to his liking. The devil has no power over us and cannot and will not affect us directly. The devil uses his only power that is to create fear around us. He agitates the hearts of men. Out of this fear we tend to slip up our obedience to God and speak from fear. And THAT’S how we give the devil the authority to work in us; because we were first disobedient to the truth of God.
Believe what is written
What we believe in our heart we confess with our mouth. The words that come out of our mouth are powerful and what we say is what we will have. So what is the truth of God?. We find our answer in Psalms 91.
When you disobey by not believing what is written in Psalms 91, the devil has already made way into your heart through fear. Once he makes his way into your heart you react out of fear, behave in fear, speak in fear and finally live in fear. It is because of your fear he can hurt, harm, infect you with the virus or even kill you!
Always remember this:
- Coronavirus is not powerful, your faith is.
- The enemies power is broken.
- Life and Death is in the power of the tongue.
- The enemy will do everything in his power to lead you astray. Do not buy into his lies. Keep your armour on and stay with God.
- Do not react through fear. React through the Word of God.
The dead do not fear the darkness
Have you ever come across a dead man who fears? No right? It is the same.
When Jesus took all our sins and died on the cross he took our mortal bodies also. So our mortal bodies along with the desires, the fears, and the weakness of the flesh also died with him. We (the mortal body) no longer live but it is Christ who is living in and through us.
Since we are dead to ourselves we do not feel the fear of anything. We simply do not have the right to fear because we have given up our lives to live in him.
Unified with Christ
In Ephesians 6:10 we see that Paul writes ‘Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of his explosive power flowing in and through you.’
Consider mixing of water and milk as a parallelism to the life union we have with the Lord Jesus.
Water Milk Homogeneous solution (You) (Jesus) (Your life-union with Jesus Christ)
When you are unified in Christ there is no difference. There is no saying where Christ starts and you end or where you begin and Christ ends.
Your wonderful portion from God
Psalms 23:4 says “Lord, even when your path takes me through the valley of deepest darkness, fear will never conquer me, for you already have!” So this means that even when we walk through the deepest darkest valleys of life we will know no fear. We are dead to feel fear so now nothing in this world can harm us. We are immune to all the deadly pestilences that this world brings.
Your portion is not like that of the world. Your portion is HEALING, WEALTH AND STRENGTH!
When we read Isaiah 53:5, we see that it is written in the past tense. ‘with his stripes we are healed’. This means our healing was purchased 2000 years ago. We were made whole by the blood of Jesus and by believing that we were made whole. We step into the divine protection of God.
Believers qualify for divine protection of God through the blood of Jesus.
Repeat this prayer and step into your divine protection:
Lord Jesus, I believe in you.
I believe that you are my creator and you became a man for me. I know that you died in my place for me. Thank you for carrying my sin and taking my punishment for my wrong doing. I know you suffered the consequences of my wrong doing. I believe you died, were buried and after three days, you rose again from the dead.
Lord Jesus, I confess I am a sinner. Lord Jesus I open my life to you. Forgive all my sins and come into my life. Thank you for making me your child and making me brand new. Amen.
How to get rid of fear? – Fill your heart with FAITH!
Faith defeats all practicality
We fill our hearts with faith by reading the word of God and by meditating upon it day and night. As we read Hebrews 11:1 we understand what faith means. It says, ‘Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the FOUNDATION NEEDED TO ACQUIRE THE THINGS WE LONG FOR. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen’.
We will not be infected
We hope not to get infected with the virus. This means WE NEVER WILL. It requires the faith that we CANNOT and WILL NOT get infected with the virus. Without our step of faith, God cannot move to work his miracle through us. When we rest in faith, knowing that nothing can harm us it is only because we have stepped into the divine protection of God. Which is obtained exclusively by our acknowledgement and making Christ our refuge and our dwelling place.
The divine protection we receive is from the power in the blood of Jesus Christ. This protection quickens our mortal bodies. It stops the pestilences of this world causing harm. This is the same power that raised Jesus from the dead and conquered the grave. This is the same power what lives in us all. It protects and flows through us to protect other people. And we should be taking more communion than ever before. It is the most powerful thing!
There is something that every sickness sees.
There is something that the devil sees.
It is the blood of Jesus.
Take the Shield of Faith
Ephesians 6:16 says, ‘In every battle, take faith as your wrap-around shield, for it is able to extinguish the blazing arrows coming at you from the Evil One’. Wear the full armour of God mentioned in Ephesians 6:11-17 when going into every battle to fight against the evil strategies of the accuser, even the battle against COVID-19. The devil grips the hearts of men (the unbelievers) through the roots of greed to create fear and havoc among many.
When we fear, we sin. Sin is missing or deviating from the mark. The mark is the laws of the Lord. When we disobey we fall outside the mark.
1 John 3:4 says, ‘the definition of sin is breaking God’s law’.
Anything done outside of faith and done in fear is sin.
Sometimes when we do not obey the law we seem to be wise in the eyes of men.
And when we do obey recklessly just the way God wants us to, we seem to be foolish in their eyes. But remember faith and foolishness go hand in hand. There is no difference between faith and foolishness. When the Son of Man comes back again, he will look for faith. Would you be taken into glory if Christ returned today? Faith is your golden ticket to rapture. But faith without deeds is dead! The call is yours. Jesus has given us this wonderful thing called choice.
We choose our paths. I choose faith in God. What do you choose?
