From the Pastor's Desk
With the Coronavirus in the news, many people are panicking. Just look at how many events have been canceled and how the stock market has plummeted in recent days. But Christians do not need to be afraid. Prophet Shawn Bolz recently prophesied that the Coronavirus is about to come to an end.
The exaggerated fear-based tactics of the enemy and several media outlets for political ends is coming to an end. The enemy has been trying to distract and steal from several equally important purposes and issues by dominating airwaves with conspiracy and fear. Within a short amount of time, the extreme threat will feel like it is way in the past, Bolz said.
His prophetic word was even picked up by Fox News. Their reporters handled it responsibly. Christians need to remember there is still a place for prayer. One missionary has shared reports of Coronavirus-afflicted patients being miraculously healed. Could it be a pandemic? Unfortunately, yes. But we must keep perspective. We should take precautions and be careful not to spread the disease. But we serve a God Who created the universe. No matter how frightening the Coronavirus may be, He is more powerful!
We must keep the Word in our hearts and trust in God. We pray God will give government and medical leaders wisdom.
"In the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, until these calamities have passed by" (Ps. 57:1).
"No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling. For He shall give His angels charge over you" (Ps. 91:10-11).
"If you keep the Lord's statues, 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).
