Corona Virus, the Government, Us & God…

Corona Virus, the Government, Us & God…

Many may be apprehensive and fearful at this time because of so many reports on television and in the newspapers about people being ill, dying or dead because of the coronavirus all over the world.

The sense of panic and uncertainty is worsened still because of the need to be quarantined or practice social distancing and isolation even for those who do not have the disease or manifest symptoms.

Brethren God is with us today as He was with Israel and these comforting words apply to His people now as they did in ancient times;

10 Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

11 “Behold, all those who were incensed against you

Shall be ashamed and disgraced;
They shall be as nothing,
And those who strive with you shall perish.

12 You shall seek them and not find them— Those who contended with you. Those who war against you
Shall be as nothing, As a nonexistent thing.
13 For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’ (Isaiah 41:10-13 NKJV).

Specifically in relation to God being the protector of those who are his from danger and plagues, the psalmist states:

“1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.2

I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” 3

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. And under His wings you shall take refuge” (Psalm 91:1-4 NKJV).

It has been proven that those who do not have symptoms of the corona virus (covid-19) manifesting to any degree and were later tested positive, were found to have infected those they had socialised with before they tested positive. I read several accounts of this.

Therefore it is important to distance oneself socially as much as possible for lengths of time, especially obeying national guidelines.

This is not only for one’s own sake but for the sake of others; You may not contract the disease or you may only have a mild form of it, but you could infect someone or others with underlying health issues (i.e pneumonia, organ transplant etc…) who are therefore vulnerable. Health professionals have also said the elderly are also more vulnerable to contracting the corona virus.

Let us be honest, at the time of writing, most people have not been tested in places where covid-19 diagnosis, illness and death are increasing in number such as the UK.

We must therefore be selfless and concerned for the well being of others as well as our own.

Instead of being alarmed and critical of the strict measures imposed to prevent the transferal of covid-19, and thinking “surely as a believer in Christ I don’t have to pay any attention to what the government is advising, after all God is with me!”, it is time for those who reason this way to come out of the “spirituality bubble” that resists God given common sense and wisdom.

Certainly there is over reporting and too much focus on the cases and issues surrounding the corona virus, but this is the reality of life. Reporters do the aforementioned for a living and human beings generally focus on issues that affect their everyday life to varying degrees depending on what it is.

Cutting out all the “noise” and living in a “spiritual bubble” of the type described earlier is not only disobedient but dangerous to the health of oneself and others; it is a case of also refusing to advise others sensibly because one refuses sensible advice.

God given common sense and wisdom must be the basis for complying with the governments’ efforts in controlling, preventing and resisting the spread of the coronavirus. If in China where the corona virus started, the strict enforcement of social distancing and quarantining worked to dimish and stop people being affected with covid-19, then other countries imposing the same or similar measures are doing the right thing.

Godly common sense and wisdom calls for accessing the situation realistically and when we do, we are able to see what governments are doing from a biblical perspective. It is not everything the secular unbelieving (in Christ) world does that is apart from Elohim. After all He created human beings, the heavens and earth and is in control of everything.

It is worth knowing or remembering as a believer in Christ or for those interested that social distancing, isolation or quarantine were practiced during biblical times.

There is God (of our Lord Jesus Christ) instructed biblical precedence for social distancing, isolation and quarantine. Therefore disobeying the government is not merely senseless but in effect it is disobeying God the Father’s proven method of ensuring the diseased are healed as well as preventing them from spreading it to others. There is nothing new under the sun!

Some of the scriptures are as follows:


45 “Now the leper on whom the sore is, his clothes shall be torn and his head bare; and he shall cover his mustache, and cry, ‘Unclean! Unclean!’ 46 He shall be unclean. All the days he has the sore he shall be unclean. He is unclean, and he shall dwell alone; his dwelling shall be outside the camp.” (Leviticus 13:45-46 NKJV).

This is a type of current social distancing and isolation measures.

In Numbers 12:1-16 when Miriam got leprosy, God instructed that she be kept isolated outside the camp for seven days. Israel led by Moses complied and they did not continue their journey until she was returned.

This is an act of being quarantined or isolated so that Miriam can recover quickly and she is also prevented from spreading leprosy.

In addition in Numbers 5:1-4, God instructed Moses to tell the children of Israel to put outside the camp those among them that have been defiled. They obeyed. This is what is happening now; those who have tested positive for the corona virus are quarantined.

Brethren, may our lives as faithful warriors for Christ be demonstrated among other ways, in our partnership with our government and nation to combat this common world wide enemy: corona virus. This is the will of God in Christ Jesus.

Watchman, what do you see?

I see…Babylon is fallen, is fallen!

Since coming to the UK over 10 years ago, as the years have passed there has been an increase in prayer, praise/worship gatherings all over the UK, small and large. No doubt this is God’s appointed time (post 2000) of preparation of an outpouring never seen before in the “final hour” before the Second Coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Multitudes of “fire stations” of the Holy Spirit are scattered across the nation. As a “Mother nation” of nations so too this has an influence on races therein and their extended families across the globe.

“4My heart panted, fearfulness affrighted me: the night of my pleasure hath he turned into fear unto me.5Prepare the table, watch in the watchtower, eat, drink: arise, ye princes, [and] anoint the shield. 6For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth.

7And he saw a chariot [with] a couple of horsemen, a chariot of asses, [and] a chariot of camels; and he hearkened diligently with much heed: 8And he cried, A lion: My lord, I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime, and I am set in my ward whole nights:9And, behold, here cometh a chariot of men, [with] a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground.” (Isaiah 21:4-9 KJV).

I see an army of God, great multitudes, not only in the UK but elsewhere contending day and night in holy indignation as warriors for God’s cause armed with His strength, they are His battle axe, watching, on their knees, lying on their faces weeping and lamenting for change, crying for change, a return of holiness and the fear of the LORD in His House, in the land, it’s political arena, government.
They refuse to walk by sight and only see as God sees, fixing the heart and mind on Him through His Word. Full of His Spirit and proclaiming the power in the blood of Jesus, the finished work on Calvary they are God’s end time Army, at their advance demons flee and take cover!

As I watch I see the enemies of God unable to build upon their foundations of old which have either broken or are unable to stay firm due to relentless spiritual warfare of God’s intercessors raised across the land.

The established territorial enclaves of spiritual powers where they taunted God’s people & the nation at large and erected impenetrable (what they thought was as such) barriers are as houses built on sand, unstable or shaky.

Yes, Babylon has fallen in the land, that system of tyranny & control, through its established freemasonry, occultic seat has fallen. That system of prideful affront through its laws and acts against the Most High God.

Proclaim it! Declare it!

I see before the great army of warriors/intercessors, the Lion of the tribe of Judah! The righteous branch, the Lord our righteousness, mighty to save.
What do I see? A long pipe, a sewage pipe it looks like, and out gushes as a torrent of water, multitudes of people, while I hear the shout of the LORD “Let my people go!!”
