The media has effectively shut the world economy down in one week. Think about it.
Just like that the government controls all sporting events, concerts, jobs, colleges, medical facilities, whether or not you can leave your house, they’ve depleted resources such as toilet paper and food, and control all travel. And many wonder why they develop and use viruses to scare the public.
They now control you and everything about your life. See how easy it was? Mass panic, fear, hysteria, and complete control of literally the entire world. Over a virus! One that the survival rates are even extremely high. All freedom has been limited overnight.
See how easy that was?
And much of the Church is flowing with the spirit of fear, forsaking the assembling of themselves together, missing the opportunity to serve in practical ways to let their light shine before men.
We are not ready for the tumultuous 2020s.
WAKE UP SHEEPLE
“Sheeple” is the insult the blogging masses use to call someone. It means a “dummy following a person or ideology without knowing why they’re following said person or ideology.” According to Merriam-Webster, here’s the actual definition: People who are docile, compliant, or easily influenced; people likened to sheep.
I wrote the following in my newest book: In many ways the decade of the 2020s will be the most tumultuous decade in American history. Take a look at this definition of tumultuous: making a loud, confused noise; uproarious.
Now think of the recent 2016 elections, the multiplied efforts to discredit everything our president does, the Russian collusion, the subsequent attempts to impeach him, but now a virus that has the entire world bound by fear.
In a presidential term where everyone from all sides of the political spectrum have been shouting at each other, we now have everyone huddling together over a virus that has killed 41 people in America.
Welcome to the tumultuous 2020s.
Tumultuous: Loud, deafening, thunderous, thundering, ear-shattering, ear-splitting, ear-piercing, uproarious, noisy, clamorous, vociferous, excited, confused, or disorderly.
Here are some more synonyms to describe tumultuous: tempestuous, stormy, turbulent, in turmoil, passionate, intense, explosive, violent, volatile, and full of upheavals. Are you getting the picture?
Of course, this virus phobia won’t last. But something else will come soon that will change America for good. It will never be the nation it once was. We are sitting ducks. But God! But the Church! We must forget this world and labor not for the meat that perishes.
“Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life…” (John 6:27).
Your faith is “much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ…” (1 Pt. 1:7).
ANTICHRIST SYSTEM RULING THE WORLD
FEAR is a big black monster that the media partners with to shape the minds of the masses. And sadly, much of the Church is following suit. The antichrist spirit uses fear to control everything about your life. This Corona virus is proof. It’s a light affliction compared to what’s coming to America.
Much of the Church is like the disciples who were rebuked by Jesus after His resurrection. “He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen” (Mk. 16:14). After rebuking them Jesus commissioned them. “Go preach and make disciples” He said. This is what we are to always be doing. But let’s face it; we are full of unbelief and hardness of heart. We’re ruled by mammon. We live in a bubble. We love our lives, and we fear death. We are not yet prepared and positioned for the tumult of this decade, which will bring far more than a mild virus that mainly affects the elderly.
Some Christians are familiar with the testimony of John G. Lake, and “the law of the Spirit and life” that operated in his life and ministry during the bubonic plague. Here it is:
“Because we were in contact with the Spirit of life, I and a little Dutch fellow with me went out and buried many of the people who had died from the bubonic plague. We went into homes and carried them out, dug the graves and put them in. Sometimes we would put three or four in one grave.
“We never took the disease. Why? Because of the knowledge of the law of life in Christ Jesus protects us. That law was working.”
Church, we need to come up to this level of faith and understanding during the days and years just ahead of us.
Meditate on these scriptures beloved, and build your faith and starve your fears and doubts to death.
“Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find FAITH on the earth.” (Luke 18:8)
“If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God… I will put NONE of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.” (Ex. 15:26)
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our FAITH.” (1 John 5:4)
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of POWER, LOVE, and a SOUND MIND.” (2 Tim. 1:7)
Unless the Bible becomes our complete and absolute standard of truth the tide of fear will continue to rise in the Church and in our society.
Never has there been a more urgent need for true spiritual physicians, brave preachers of righteousness, and shepherds who are not moved by fear or popular opinion, but who genuinely care for the sheep.
