Seek Jesus Who is Wisdom

That message from the White House is one of pure witchcraft. The prophets of Baal have forecasted their intent.
Lots of people often use 2 Chronicles 7:13 to claim God directly sent COVID. I don’t think He did. Obviously, He allowed it because what the enemy means for evil He can turn around for good. So He is is not freaked out by any of it. The data and circumstances surrounding COVID is only of confusion. God is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33). God expects us to come to Him in this time. We learned from Solomon that in times of conflicting stories what we need is wisdom. We read that “The LORD by wisdom founded the earth; By understanding He established the heavens;” (Proverbs 3:19) and we also read “All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.” (John 1:3) We know that John 1 speaks of the Lord Jesus, it is then therefore clear that if it is wisdom we need in confusion and Jesus Himself is wisdom, we can conclude that we need to seek the LORD more fervently in times of confusion.

Why did God “not tell us” about Covid?

Disclaimer: This article contains some speculation for thinking purposes and in order to help us rightly divide the Scripture if a certain case were true. Ultimately, Deuteronomy 29:29 and Proverbs 3:5-6.

I once heard a pastor while preaching ask something like if there are all these prophets, why didn’t any of them forecast the onslaught of COVID?

I guess he was having some trouble with all the YouTube prophets etc prophesying this and that, blessings and riches and easily spoken prophesies and none of tidings of hardship. And to an extent he is absolutely correct. Because we see in the Bible the prophets of God didn’t always come with “all is well” tidings. Some were of impending judgement.

So this brings us back to the question, why didn’t God tell us about COVID? We cannot say that He didn’t. As we have not heard from every single prophet across the globe. Yet, even if He didn’t, so what, I don’t think He was obligated to.

But certainly He would say something one might say according to Amos 3:7. “Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.”

Let’s suppose that no prophet across the globe knew about COVID. Since God cannot lie, it would then mean that He God did not send COVID. Because if He truly did, then He’d tell His prophets. It would then mean that if it is not of God then it is of the enemy. And the enemy when he presents the Word of God to us, he twists it to deceive us. But he himself must actually abide by the Word (Job 1). As he is ruled by his pride, has no creativity and counterfeits all that God does in order to appear as God, he copies. The devil does forecast his intentions with his prophets. Today, these are in the entertainment industry, the news organizations and the world of much finance, health and politics. Forecasts of COVID came through the mouth of Bill Gates, 2012 London Olympics Opening and many more. Just search the internet.

I for one am more inclined to believe that a prophet of God did actually know; the prophecy maybe just didn’t hit some of our ears and to the ears it did hit, it was perhaps ignored. Lord knows. Yet even if this is all a surprise to every believer across the face of the earth, it certainly doesn’t mean that prophecy no longer is alive and well, and it definitely doesn’t mean that God is not faithful to His Word and finally, it absolutely doesn’t mean He abandoned us in these times. God is FAITHFUL and He will never leave us or forsake us.

If you are struggling to know the truth in the midst of all the confusion, just seek Jesus. Leave what you don’t understand alone or at least set aside for a bit, and enjoy the company of Jesus, through praise and prayer. We relax with Him just like we’d relax with a loved one whom we enjoy their company. You know like when you don’t feel like stressing over the things of the world but just want to hang out with someone you enjoy and talk about pleasant memories and future plans? Sort of like that with God, but more, because He’s God and He doesn’t get tired of our wanting to be with Him. By the way, not to say that we aren’t supposed to talk to God about what’s bothering us, we absolutely can, yet we can rest assured that this is not the only conversation we can have with Him, and sometimes we can just “cool out” or relax with Him, worship Him, adore Him, be silent with Him and in turn just have Him love on us. He will always strengthen those who diligently seek Him.

Innocent Blood

This has been on my heart for a while now. Over the year think I have been really jolted into the reality of how brutal it is to kill the innocent in the womb. I have been trying to avoid speaking on the issue, but alas I will speak.

Below is a graphic and sad picture of what many babies face when they are aborted.

abortion

In the OT, many nations were cut off because they sacrificed and burned their children to false gods. Today, many have raised “choice” and “situation” as reason to abort the child in the womb. I believe it grieves God greatly.

With the win of Donald Trump, and his promise to elect justices that will rule against abortion, I believe we have made a turn for good. Had we selected the alternative, who knows, maybe we would have been like past nations, been cut off too.

So yes, the election was about the Supreme Court because in it shapes the direction of the nation.

The image is indeed graphic. But selected for a reason. In the Bible described an account (Judges 19) where a woman was gang raped. She was found dead at the threshold of her home. Her master, grieved by what had happened to his concubine, cut her lifeless body into 12 pieces and mailed them to the leaders to show the kind of evil that happened in the land. I am sure the graphic body parts caught the attention of those leaders. In the same respect, I hope that the image catches your attention to grieve for the life of the innocent.

“Did not He who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers?” – Job 31:15

If God gave that life, we do not have the right to take it away.

I would have to say that freedom is not the right to do whatever we want, but the right to choose what we ought. If we do whatever we want and end up breaking the law of the land, in the natural we end up in jail. In the spiritual, die in such a state of sin and we go to an eternal prison separated from Jesus.

It is my hope that we will turn from the idea that it is okay to kill the innocent in the womb.

Finally, may the Lord grant Donald Trump and Mike Pence all wisdom, health and protection to lead the great nation of the United States and in turn, may those who do not yet know the Lord Jesus, turn to Him for the forgiveness of sins and life eternal. Amen.
