Dr. Michael Brown: ‘Fear Not, This Is Not the End of the World’

by | Apr 21, 2020 | Revival

Dr. Michael Brown realized quickly that the coronavirus was not an end-times plague from the book of Revelation. But, he says, he realized that it was something to take very seriously, and it stirred him to action.

He began writing articles of hope and biblical wisdom for those affected by COVID-19, and eventually, he quickly cranked out a book about it titled When the World Stops, a book he hopes will help people not only weather the coronavirus, but any other crisis that might come along in the future.

“I really felt that God’s people needed words of encouragement, words of faith and words of wisdom that would speak to them not only just now, but even a year from now or five years from now,” Brown told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. “I wanted to write something that was relevant and that wouldn’t be just here today, gone tomorrow.

“I felt it was a book that the Lord wanted me to get out immediately. There was a sense of grace on it. There was a sense of anointing on it. There was clarity, no sense that anything was being rushed.

“We are all obviously in a unique situation, the likes of which none of us have ever lived through before. Yes, there have been crises like world wars and the 9/11 terrorist attack. With everything shut down, from church buildings to movie theaters to synagogues, society has been turned upside down. Sports stadiums have been closed and the Olympics postponed.

“I knew we must seize the moment, a unique one in history where Holy Spirit wants to get our attention. And the first message I heard was, ‘Fear not; this is not the end of the world. Whatever is happening, Jesus is with us. Fear not, but wake up.’ This is a moment where God is speaking to us that this is a divine reset.”
