The Coronavirus or COVID-19 is dominating all headlines and causing mass panic and worry. People are taking precautions like never before to avoid getting the virus and that is a good thing. Of course the news media who mostly work for Satan are using this to attack our President Trump and make us feel like we all are going to die from it. The truth is that the Coronavirus may possibly be a judgment from God, regardless of who created it and unleashed it to cause chaos, God did not stop it from becoming an issue. The Bible warns that these days are coming and these things must happen. Does this mean we have entered into the very End Times? No, but in order for the End Times to happen these things have to happen too:
“9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by. 10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: 11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.” Luke 21:9-11
Just because someone gets sick with the coronavirus does not necessarily mean that they are being judged by God or committed some kind of sin, it is possible to get caught in the crossfire of God’s Wrath and also reap benefits that you do not deserve from God’s Blessings.
“That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.” Matthew 5:45
There have been many blessings because of coronavirus. Sodomite events have been canceled, St. Patrick’s Day Parades where people would be drunk and puking in the streets have been canceled, bars closed, strip clubs closed, the Las Vegas Strip aka Sin City has been shut down, all wicked concerts and events are canceled, etc. There is too much to name. This situation will hopefully scare and cause the people who were going to go to these events and sin a chance to realize how bad they need God and to repent before they die in their sins because God is willing to save them through the Blood of Jesus.
“17 Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted. 18 Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death. 19 Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses. 20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.” Psalm 107:17-20
No one knows how long this will go on for, it leaves a great uncertainty to everyone. Coronovirus has effected everyone, jobs are being put on hold, schools closed down, day care centers closed, these are uncertain times for everyone but as Christians we must go with the situation we are in and trust in our only certainty in this life and that is Jesus:
“1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2
Everyone needs to take precautions to avoid getting sick or getting others sick. God requires us to have good hygiene and make wise decisions to stay healthy. No one is “above” the virus but God. In Leviticus 13 and 15 we see God gives clear directions to the Israelites to avoid catching disease from a sick person. Hand washing, distancing, and wise hygiene choices are all seen in the Bible as commands from God and should be still practiced today and will prevent many people from getting coronavirus, simply by obeying God’s commands.
“All the days wherein the plague shall be in him he shall be defiled; he is unclean: he shall dwell alone; without the camp shall his habitation be.” Leviticus 13:46
