Take These Anointed Actions to Combat COVID-19 Pandemonium

by | Mar 16, 2020 | Spiritual Warfare

I received an email today that included the following questions:

What are we to think about the coronavirus and the nation’s/world’s response to it? The collapse of our economy, the sequestering of peoples? Are we in the tribulation, last days? How does this fit into prophecy? How do I manage the fear I have for the safety of my children, grandchildren, and for our jobs and abilities to buy food and survive? I feel ill- equipped to navigate these waters.

Is This a Serious Situation?

I think so. I am 67, and I am not aware that the U.S. has ever in my lifetime cut off all travel between Europe and the U.S. In addition, Disney World has closed all its parks worldwide as well as its cruise lines. I am not aware that this has ever happened in history.

Schools, colleges, sports teams and much more are closing for the time being. And the stock market has lost almost 1/3 of its value in the last couple of weeks. So yes, I do believe this is a serious situation.

What Do We Think We Know at This Point in Time?

—A person can be contagious for up to 38 days. The virus can live in the atmosphere for several hours and for several days on surfaces. It is passed from one to another through these two means for sure, so washing hands often and less socializing can surely be helpful. The Bible tells us to do these two things.

—He shall count off for himself seven days for his cleansing; he shall then wash his clothes and bathe his body in running water and will become clean (Lev. 15:13). Nice to see modern science in full agreement with the wisdom of God. I can’t imagine any reason why I would not honor this wisdom.

—80% of the people who get the virus will only have mild symptoms. There are no reported deaths of children under the age of 10. It appears that those who are over 60, frail or have respiratory problems or compromised immune systems are most at risk and should exert the most caution. So anything that strengthens your immune system is beneficial to do. Here is a list of 10 things which build the immune system.

Summary

“For heaven’s sake, celebrate!” is what the Lord spoke to me while in the hospital recovering from a stress-induced heart attack. The Israelites refused to believe that God had given them the promised land and spoke instead that they would die in the wilderness.

So, rather than receiving God’s promised blessing, they received what they were believing for and confessing. Let’s confess that we have the victory in our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus. God will keep us. Trust in the Lord! {eoa}
