Sunday Thoughts on “COVID-19″… 🤒
🤧 This whole “COVID-19” thing has got me thinking, as I’m sure many are doing. But my thoughts concern the professing Christians out there. This is for you who profess Christ.
Whenever God’s judgment was brought upon a nation, the true (righteous) people of God would often cry out to him in repentance, even confessing the sins of their nation as if they were personal sins. How many professing Christians are on their faces right now confessing and repenting of their own (!!) sins; crying out to God for mercy for their nation? How many are acknowledging the sins of their nation, and agonizing over what their own lack of zeal for the Lord has brought upon it? Sadly, not many, by what I can see around me…
What I see is professors of Christ arrogantly claiming this “pandemic 🙄” is God’s judgment upon the heathen element of your nation, pointing fingers in judgment of your own. But who remembers that the word of God says, in 1 Peter 4:17
“17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” As long as professing Christians are pointing fingers at others, they are not humbling themselves under the mighty hand of God; they will not be repenting of their own disobedience.
This is largely due to the false gospel being preached everywhere today, which deceives people into believing the pernicious LIE that they don’t have to stop all sinning because it’s covered by the blood of Christ; or can’t stop, but don’t worry, it’s all covered!! 😝 BLECH!!!!! 😝
The word of God says NO SUCH THING!! It says we must repent and turn from our sins; that the blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sin IF we confess our sins ONE TO ANOTHER and FORSAKE them; that the grace of God was sent to give us the power to live righteously and godly in this present world!! It says that by the Holy Ghost we have the same power as Jesus had as a man, to OBEY GOD. How many in today’s professing Christian circles even know that, anymore?
😷 Which brings me to anther thing this “COVID-19” insanity has made me see:
It is truly a strange thing when you professors of Christ can make excuses as to why you do things that you know displease God. When I mention, for example, that the garbage you watch on DV (Devil Vision) grieves God, you somehow “justify” your continued watching of it. You don’t jump to repent of it and put away those filthy images from before your eyes; but the minute your wicked PM Trudeau commands you to “self-isolate”, you are ready and willing to obey — TO THE LETTER!! 🤔
Is not God the one you ought to be fearing? Why obey such stupid commandments of men, when you won’t bother yourself to obey the holy, life-giving commandments of God? And why say, “We’re in the hands of the Philistines; we must do what they say,” when you won’t even look at the reason WHY we are in their hands?
Do you realize: God brings judgment upon a nation because the people who profess to be his have fallen away from the truth and have gone after other gods (which are no gods); because his people have despised his laws and have become disobedient; because the professing Christians have been deceived into believing SO MANY LIES that they cannot even recognize the truth anymore?
But praise God, there is a remnant who have not forsaken the right way, or who have realized their errors and repented, and ARE NOW walking in righteousness, victorious over ALL known sin!! My heartfelt prayer is that more and more of you will come to the knowledge of the truth and be made free from sin!! 😇
