“Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, He will come with vengeance; with divine retribution, He will come to save you.” (Isaiah 35:4 NIV)
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9 NIV)
“When we live our lives within the shadow of God Most High, our secret hiding place, we will always be shielded from harm. How then could evil prevail against us or disease infect us?” (Psalm 91:9-10 TPT)
In God’s kingdom realm, faith is the force that all of Heaven uses and it should be the force that Christians use in our lives. As believers and followers of Jesus Christ, we should not be fearful during this pandemic. Our lives should be marked by the “peace that passes all understanding.” We have a never-ending covenant with God Most High that gives us the provision of safety from disease and infection.
I’ve seen the prophets say that this is a weak virus and that it will disappear as suddenly as it appeared. On the Sunday that President Trump called for a day of prayer for the Coronavirus. I was praying and I asked the Lord to hide America in the billows of His robes from the eyes of the enemy. I have discovered the power of being hidden in Christ, but that is for another teaching. As I was praying, I saw in the Spirit the United States and God’s robes billowing over the country. I then saw the Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) standing over the country looking for those who choose not to fear this pandemic and stand up and declare it to flee the earth realm. The words I heard in my spirit from Jesus, is “it will evaporate suddenly and all will marvel at it.” Since then my church as been decreeing it dead and gone.
What does it look like now since then? The world is full of panic, fear, and anxiety. Christians should be standing in the peace of God during this time and not yielding to the fear plaguing the rest of the world. We are peculiar. Does this mean we should ignore the government’s instructions on sheltering in place? No, it doesn’t. Obey the instructions as the Word tells us to, and use this time to declare God’s will over this. He wants this thing destroyed and our words can destroy it. Our position of authority in God’s Kingdom realm gives us this ability.
As faith is the force in the Kingdom realm, fear is the force of the dark kingdom and the world system. We are commanded to not fear over three hundred times in the Bible. It must be pretty important for God to say it that many times. Fear is a powerful force, a spirit that can whip the whole world into a frenzied panic–just as we are seeing today. Coronavirus is a weak virus that gets its effectiveness from the power of fear. It has literally shut down the whole world’s economic systems and driven all people into their homes in fear. The antidote for Christians is faith. Psalm 91 gives us the promise of immunity–IF WE BELIEVE IT.
Faith is what you believe in your heart. If you believe that you will catch this virus if you go outside, then don’t go outside because you will have what you believe. You can be in faith and let God’s Wisdom keep you during this time. You can exercise your faith by spending that time speaking against this pandemic in prayer. Let your faith rise to speak destruction to this virus in your prayer closet. Christians are in the unique and blessed position to change the world around us through our words and our faith.
“For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” (I Corinthians 4:17-18 ESV)
There is a saying “this too shall pass” that is seen in this scripture. If you are being impacted by this virus in any way, the command still remains to fear not. The question we must ask ourselves is this: do I BELIEVE God’s promise in Psalm 91 or do I believe it’s hopeless as the media is saying? Do you think God is surprised at this? No, He isn’t. He is our refuge, so run into your secret place and begin to speak to this thing to flee. It is demonic and is subject to the authority of every believer on earth!
There is a prophecy that says this will end suddenly by Passover/Easter and I believe that it will. Meanwhile, I’m using my faith to destroy it from the face of the earth with my decrees and declarations. God WILL turn this all around for His people’s good. He always does, so choose today to obey the instructions of the Lord: FEAR NOT and use your FAITH to release the Kingdom of God into the world. Coronavirus flies on the wings of fear, we fly on the wings of faith in God. Don’t yield to fear; rather stand in faith and see the defeat of this enemy very soon…
Don’t know Him?
