Last night, I decided to watch the news. I rarely watch it, because I find it is usually very one sided and often very negative. But I do like to know what is being put out there to the masses as truth. What is everyone seeing and believing? I am shocked that the news continues on with the sensationalizing of the death toll, and number of people testing positive for coronavirus.
In my world, which is a very small world, most people are fully aware that the numbers are very subjective, and that there is more going on here than just a coronavirus. But, I wonder, how many people are aware of this.
We all have willingly accepted this new way of life. The whole world has become one because of this illness. Every country, every tribe, and every nation is affected by this coronavirus.
Does that alone not give you pause?
Here in Michigan, life has begun to go on in a sort of new norm. My husband must report to his employeer every night before leaving to work. He must answer a set of questions to verify his health, and those he has come into contact with that day, before he can head into his office. When he arrives at his place of work, there is limited workers there, and most of the time he is actually in the building alone. This is the new normal.
My sons and daughters who do contract work, have very few jobs, because people are not ready to have contact with others.
Our state has already hired thousands of contract trackers, to keep track of people and who they come into contact with. This is for our safety, to proect us all from illness.
People are ready and willing to allow the government access to their private lives, to their personal lives, because they are more afraid than ever.
But what I think breaks my heart most is the ever increasing death toll from suicide and other psychological issues. People are lost. People have no hope. People are giving up. People are desperate.
But how will we help them? How will we meet people at their point of need?
We can’t go anywhere, except work or to get our essential needs. The governments of the world are preparing us for a second wave of shut downs. They are planning for it, expecting it.
This new way of life going forward, we will be monitored. We will be watched. We will be reporting in.
All in the name of safety and courtesousy.
As, I think about this and realize that Biblical prophecy is indeed being fulfilled right before our very eyes, I am not afraid. I am not distraught. I am full of hope.
The world may be falling apart, but I am not of this world. The world may be lost, but I am found. The world may be sick, but I am whole.
I am so grateful for the knowledge that I have that my Savior and Redeemer is on the Throne, and He is soon and very soon returning to defeat His enemy and establish His Kingdom.
My heart breaks for those who are unaware of His victory. My heart yearns to shout it from the street, “Do NOT be afraid, for greater is He that is with us, than he that is against us.” My heart wants to comfort the sick, sad, desperate, needy, and lost.
Our enemy wants to silence us, be we will not be silenced. We will not riot in the streets, but rather we will shout from the rafters of the internet. Our enemy has locked us in our homes, but he has not taken our voice from us.
Today is the day. Make some noise. Find a way to encourage someone with the truth. The Truth that they are loved. The Truth that they were created with a purpose. The Truth that life is worth living. The Truth that they can be redeemed. The Truth that they can repent, and walk in Truth.
There is NOTHING that can separate us from the love of our Creator, except ourself. No man, no lie, nothing.
IF we believe and turn to Him, He is faithfu and just.
The World is forever falling away, falling into darkness, but we are NOT of this World.
