Coronavirus: Suspicion that not all is as it seems

A third of the world is in lockdown. The largest country is just coming out of it. The skies are cleaner than they’ve been in decades, the children are seeing more of their parents than ever before, society is in slo mo. And I’m thinking, this cannot be real.

Today and every day

It’s the early morning light and you awaken from sleep. Have you ever forgotten about coronavirus — however briefly — and as it dawns on you that the world has turned upside down, have you thought: “Naw, this can’t be true”?

I have.

A third of the world is in lockdown. The largest country is just coming out of it. The skies are cleaner than they’ve been in decades, the children are seeing more of their parents than ever before, society is in slo mo. And I’m thinking, this cannot be real.

What is all the fuss about?

When a serious health crisis overcomes the world, it is important to obey the government rules and in our case, to stay home!

But

Is this pandemic serious? Is this virus caused by something biological that can kill? Will it mutate repeatedly, so we can never truly get a handle on it, to live securely once again?

Is this mind control? Or birth control? or population control? Does it matter?

Conspiracy theories

There are loads of conspiracy theories. In the end, whether any are founded in truth or not, it’s all just gossip… because there isn’t anything humanly possible that we can do about any of the people behind a possible conspiracy. They are too smart and have too much money; they are immune to any threat we might wreak on their plans. And if we think about it too much (or even at all), it is only a distraction away from what we can do, which is to pray.

We need true insight. Facts may be helpful but gossip is not. Facts can give us a picture of what is.

I do wonder if the threat is real or whether in fact coronavirus is a matter of:  media sensationalising, governments capitulating (to the wealthy elite who are in control), mobs panicking. There is something intangibly super-suspicious and cinematic about the daily news breakdown.

Nevertheless, I obey the rules and encourage others to do the same.

I pray: that GOD would draw more to Himself, that He would prepare His Bride for Jesus’ return, that He would protect us all from this virus that would seek to terrorise, kill, destroy people, society, the earth’s population.

The End is Near (Matthew 24:36-44)

I do believe the end of the world as we know it is near. I do think we need to prepare. I expect we have work to do before Jesus returns and prayer is an excellent start.

So let’s pray shall we? Let’s pray as led, including for loved ones to be saved, and for those who are saved to stay close to the one true GOD. And let us pray also for the nation in which we live. There are sheep nations and goat nations. Let us pray for our nation, that our just God will have mercy, remember its past, and render it a sheep nation, rather than condemn it. Let us pray for goodness to rise to the surface, and debachery to be debunked. Let us pray and give thanks to our GOD who loves us and gave us a way to be saved from eternal death, who brought to everlasting life. 

We can pray for insight into what is happening; He can show us. We can pray for connections, in order to pray — on line or by phone — with others. We can pray for divine revelation and the authority to speak over nations, peoples, events not yet come to pass, that GOD’s will will be done over everything.

Let us pray!

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
