I am reminded of Moses telling Aaron to put a brass serpent on the end of a pole. The poisonous snakes were biting the people. Moses said, "look at the brass serpent, do not look down." We are in this place. Our help comes from above not below. The wisdom of God is clear and clean. It preserves us and protects us.
This situation of COVID 19 is just a warning shot over the bow of the ship called God's church. It is to wake us up. As a result, we can wake up to two things, the wisdom of God or just the situation on hand. This is what Hebrews talks about. The double-edged sword that separates the bone from the marrow as so with the soul from the spirit. This overlooked scripture must be the key element incorporated by all to see the turn of the kingdoms of the earth to Christ. Bear with me as I attempt to teach on this.
11 Chronicles 7:13-14
13 When I shut up the heavens so there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land or send a plague among MY people.
Let's look at this. Who did this? It was God. He allowed this to take place. It was not the Liberals or Democrats. Things happen like this when people are separated from God. Esp. and mainly the church. It is consequences; consequences are judgement to good or to bad. We are seeing the bad but it is also good. It is wake-up time. The question is in our wake up, do we end up in a zeal without wisdom or do we connect with God and walk in His revelation. This question is crucial. One way will end in defeat and mudding the waters, the other will be a clear victory.
14 If MY people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray.
There cannot be true prayer without humility. Many are called but not all are humble.
and seek my face
Seeking Gods face must come before asking of His hand to be involved in the conditions of mankind in trouble. Seeking God's face is not as easy as it may sound. It requires our own retrospect. The Holy Spirit knows us. Our power to change things hinges on how much we see or understand our Fathers heart, His face.
and turn from their wicked ways.
To say we have not been wicked shows we are the problem. If we acknowledge our separations from God, we will have a marvellous result .
Then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sins and will heal their land.
It is not a Republican or Democrat thing. It is a "US" thing.
There is an incredible disclosure in the USA. Evil is being uncovered. There are many now looking up at the brass serpent. Doing the 2 Chronicles proposition from God and I believe we are seeing some results. We must keep this up. I personally am doing more prayer. Talking with God and Loving Him. I have more power in my proclamations and I know I am changing the spiritual atmosphere over the things I pray. Prayer, communication with God. Loving Him for who He is and not just for things we see must be done. Loving and honouring humility and seeing others more important than ourselves is some of the greatest keys to divine power over demonic control. These characteristics are what we put the armour of Ephesians 6 on. Without this character, we are hollow behind the armour and the enemy knows this. God may allow more problems to come before a significant army will rise to rule the nations in integrity and mercy.
