'Repentance & Fearing The Pandemic' Ron McGatlin
A number of surface and practical reasons for the extreme fear of the coronavirus could be sited. Such as media hype or the unknown factors of the virus or perhaps human error in research labs in China and more. However, the more important issue is the deeper reality of the cause or the reason for their being a serious life threatening contagious disease like coronavirus.
This consideration takes us to why there is death and disease? And even more specific to today why is God allowing this disease at this time?
Beyond that question is the big question, why is this creating an extreme inordinate fear that is literally shutting down the production and prosperity of the strongest nations in the world?
WHAT DOES GOD HAVE TO DO WITH ALL OF THIS?
This is the point at which our finite human minds run out of ability to grasp the fullness of the workings of God. Holy Spirit can enlighten the word of God and speak into our spirit the deeper realities of His works in the world.
Death and disease are always related. In the Garden of Eden there was neither death nor disease. There was also no fear in the garden before Adam and Eve entered into the sin of disobedience to God and His perfect plan for mankind on earth.
Death and disease are direct results of sin, disobedience to God and His perfect plan and way. (Genesis 2:15-17) (Romans 7:13) (Romans 8:2).
Did God send death and disease upon mankind?
Or did man choose death and disease when Adam chose to sin against God and His perfect plan and way?
Yes, God did design life without sin, death or disease. However, man chose death and disease when he chose sin of disobedience to the loving plan of God for man.
REDEMPTION AND RESTORATION IN CHRIST JESUS
Loving God sent His beloved only begotten Son to become a man to redeem mankind from sin and death. The only total solution for sin, which leads to disease and death, is in Christ Jesus. Receiving the resurrected life of the person of Spirit Christ by the Holy Spirit into our lives is the only way of redemption from the curse of death and disease in this life.
God’s word spoken forth created the world and all that is on it or in it. When God spoke, if you eat of the fruit of the tree of good and evil you shall surely die, the curse of death was created in the same way as the earth and the heavens were created when God spoke. Mankind was truly given a free will to choose to obey God and live or disobey God and die. Death and disease including the coronavirus are a result of NOT FULLY ACCEPTING THE FULL MEASURE OF THE REDEMPTION AND RESTORATION IN CHRIST JESUS BY FULLY ABIDING IN CHRIST AND CHRIST ABIDING IN US.
God’s words can never be changed. Like the law of gravity it cannot be changed but it can be overridden by the law of aerodynamics. The law of sin and death can be overridden by the law of redemption and restoration in Christ Jesus. However, again like gravity and aerodynamics the provision must be fully and properly applied for man to fly or for sin and death to be overcome and abundant eternal life to lift us above sin, disease and death.
THE FEAR AND DEATH OF TODAY
The United States of America and the nations of the world are not properly applying the provision of redemption and restoration of Christ Jesus. The people, governments and churches of the western world are NOT FULLY AND PROPERLY APPLYING NOR EXPERIENCING THE PROVISION OF CHRIST JESUS BY THE HOLY SPIRIT GUIDING AND EMPOWERING OUR LIVES INTO THE ALIGNMENT OF OBEDIENCE TO GOD ALMIGHTY.
Disease is the first steps or warnings of the progression of death by sin. God in His love has set up the system of sin and death, and the system of redemption and restoration to abundant life in Christ Jesus and Christ in us.
Inordinate FEAR that destroys production and prosperity comes to destroy the results and benefits of that which came through walking toward obedience to God and to help us to want to fully turn toward obedience to His will and way.
THE REDEMPTION AND RESTORATION OF AMERICA
REPENTANCE OR TURNING TO OBEDIENCE TO GOD AND HIS WAY IS THE PROVISION OF GOD TODAY FOR AMERICA AND THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD.
IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES, AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN, AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND HEAL THEIR LAND. 2 CHRONICLES 7:14.
Today March 15, 2020 is the day of the beginning of turning back to God with repentance. The day that you are reading this is the day for you to join in and turn your life and help turn our nation back to God’s full provision of abundant life of living and walking in Christ and Christ in us by the Holy Spirit.
If you are a citizen of a nation you are a part of that nation. If you are an American you are part of the nation of America. Whether you have actively participated in the vile sins of America or not you are collectively a part of the nation and have the opportunity to REPENT AS THE NATION and pray as the nation for the sin of the nation.
Repent to God for all the sin of America as you are the nation. Specifically repent and ask God to forgive us for the sin of abortion, forgive us for turning away from God in our schools, our families and our government, and forgive us for our immorality, pornography, our turning to our own way.
We cannot just pray for “them” but must pray as the nation for the nation. It is us the nation of America that must turn and not “them”. We are the voice of turning to God with the whole heart of the nation.
Pray as God leads by the Holy Spirit. The nations that turn to God will be redeemed and restored as the kingdom will advance on earth.
Worship and praise God with thankful hearts for all He is doing in this world to bring us into the reality of the fullness of His pure love in His kingdom of abundant eternal life. Do not quit, do not give up the victory is ours in Christ Jesus.
America will be saved. The nations will be blessed in the joyful rule of the will and plan of God comes forth on Planet Earth.
