CORONA VIRUS CONSIDERATIONS
I would like to add my thoughts to the current declarations being made about this years flu virus.
SUCH PLAGUES ARE PROPHESIED
The Bible is very clear regarding the massive upheavals to be experienced In the last days.
THE BIBLE HAS CLEAR DIRECTIONS REGARDING PLAGUES
In exodus and Leviticus God gave clear instruction on handling plagues etc.
Quarantine for those infected.
Cleansing for all infected areas
Isolation from daily life.
Safety of dwellings covered by the blood of Jesus.
THE WORLD IS NOW BEING CONTROLLED BY A VIRUS
The days of Governmental control are now a reality.
If a common flu virus can cause governments to close all public gatherings – imposing punishments on those who do not comply – what levels of control will come next.
The virus will pass – but the global financial effects will have significant impact.
PERHAPS IT IS A PRACTISE FOR THINGS AHEAD
Perhaps we should be seeking God for wisdom as to how to live in such awesome and terrible days.
Perhaps God is getting us ready for days when large gatherings are no longer permitted.
Perhaps the small home group will become the real place of fellowship and faith.
WHAT IF THE NEXT VIRUS WAS A WIFI VIRUS
What if we were confined to our houses to meet as believers and there was no video link from the great stage – with the great worship bands and preachers.
Prepare yourself now – the days are coming.
IT IS TIME TO TRAIN SMALL GROUP LEADERS FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS
The leadership of the church must be focussed on the small group once again.
The small group must be the primary focus for the gathering of the saints.
It must be more than a common interest group.
It must return to being the epicentre of worship – warfare – witness – word -welfare.
UNDERSTAND THE SEASONS
I love what God is doing in raising up great churches around the world. I am a part of such a church. History has always witnessed the rise of great churches.
However history has also seen times when the church has not been allowed to have a great public stage – but it has continued to grow from house to house and from strength to strength.
WE ARE THE CHURCH
