There is no doubt that we and people all over the world are in the midst of judgment from God! When the Corona virus first hit the news, people called out, “this is an End Times judgement”. I was skeptical, because when God sends judgment, especially those in the End Times, they will huge and undeniably from God. Most nations around the world are in the throes of this deadly pestilence, as the rest of the world is shut in their homes waiting for it to pass. Many are overcome by fear and anxiety, some are in outright rebellion, while others are tuning into the massive amount of Church services available on every kind of app imaginable, looking for peace and answers.
God has been speaking very clearly to us at our Worship Encounter this week. Questions were asked that I encourage you to go before God and ask:
What have we done to push God to unleash His judgment on us?
The obvious answer is we have done evil in God’s sight.
Another question was asked of us:
If God had sent Jeremiah to speak to us before this plague, would we have listened to Him?
So what is the biblical response for Christians living in the midst of God’s Judgments? Before we are spiritually ready to have that question answered, we must take the time the Lord has given us to seek Him as never before!
2 Chronicles 7:13-15 If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.
This verse has been spoken by several of our speakers, after they have Studied God’s Word, Prayed for Discernment, and Worshiped the Lord!
In the midst of this current pestilence, we as Christians need to humble ourselves and repent for our sins and the sins of our nations. We need to pray and seek the face of God for wisdom going forward, and we most assuredly must turn from our wicked ways! We must align our ways with God’s Ways. IF we do all these things in great humility and sincerity, THEN God will:
Then God promises that His eyes will see us and His ears will be listening to our prayers that we can then pray for those who do not know the Lord.
Let’s not just sit in the comfort of our homes and watch church on TV. Let’s arise and build a family altar to truly study His Word, pray His heart, and worship Him for who He is!
