We are living in a COVID-19 world and based upon the belief that the virus was sent by God to punish men for sin. Deut 28:59-61. However, Christians are very concern because after all the suffering and death; some still don?t get it. Rather than talk about getting close to the Lord, some are talking about going back to normal, which means the same old sins that brought the wrath of God upon us in the first place. Rev 9:20-21. Base on that, I don?t see God removing this virus off the earth yet. I believe it will be with us for a long time because men still don?t give the glory to God. Dan 4:31-32.
In the bible, God sent plagues and He removed them after repentance and sorrow from the people over their sin. If we want the corona to go away, men need to repent by doing the same thing. Jonah 3:4-10. Gen 18:32. Jer 18:7-8. 1 King 21.25-29.
Men talk about finding a cure for the virus and believe me, that would be great news. But God may surely prevent our scientists from achieving that cure. 1 Sam 23.14.
The only way out of this thing is repentance. All need to repent and turn to God; for if not; we will surely perish. Luke 13.3.
Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, "Where is the promise of His coming? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation." 2 Peter 3.3-4
Time must end at some point and God has appointed a day in which He shall judge all men according to their works. Acts 17:30. This is going to happen, so we might as well get ready to meet our Maker. Romans 14:11-12.
Some men think it is a joke that the Lord will end all that we know and afterwards send some people to heaven and others to hell. But such will be the case. Matt 25:46.
God isn't effective by time. Psa 41:13. The centuries can come and go and those years are only like a day to Him. 2 Peter 3.8 However, men are effective by time. Days weeks, months and years can test the perseverance of any person; that is why men scoff at the thought of a Judgement Day because of the passing of 100 or 200 years. .
But men are wrong, Judgement will come as a thief does. Mark 13:32-37. 1 Thess 5.2
A Christian isn't a hypocrite. Yes, there are hypocrites claiming to be Christian, but every tree is known by its fruit. Jas 3.11-13. Matt 7.16-17.
The word of God teaches how one can become a Christian and what one does to remain faithful. In the bible, the New Testament is where we see the church established by Christ and people becoming members of the church. Mathew 16.18-19. Acts 2.1-47. Acts 16.13-15. Acts 16.26-34.
Living according to the scriptures is what a Christian does. That is done because the scriptures teach that we must live as the Lord commands and believers submits to that word. 1 Peter 1:22-25. Acts 18.8
Living a Christian life isn't for everyone. Many don't want their lives controlled by the Lord. And you know what? That's alright. God doesn't want to be with those who don't want Him around. And when a person rejects the word of God. That person has made the decision not have God in his life. On the Day of Judgment, all men will be judged according to their works. Rev 20.12-15. 2 Cor 5.10. Matt 16.27
Then the chief butler spoke to Pharaoh, saying: "I remember my faults this day. When Pharaoh was angry with his servants, and put me in custody in the house of the captain of the guard, both me and the chief baker, we each had a dream in one night, he and I. Each of us dreamed according to the interpretation of his own dream. Now there was a young Hebrew man with us there, a servant of the captain of the guard. And we told him and he interpreted our dreams for us; to each man he interpreted according to his own dream. And it came to pass, just as he interpreted for us, so it happened. He restored me to my office, and he hanged him." Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him quickly out of the dungeon; and he shaved, changed his clothing, and came to Pharaoh.
Recently, a man was released from jail and won a million dollar verdict because he was imprisoned for a murder, he didn't commit. I'm glad he was set free. No innocent person should spend one hour in jail. But this newly released man didn't do as the cup bearer in the Genesis account. He said he wants to learn law and work to free from jail other innocent prisoners behind bars. We hope he can make that difference in the law.
