It makes me terribly sad when I hear people saying that God was the one who caused all of the suffering associated with the Coronavirus.
It is simply not true!
It is vital to keep in mind that there are two supernatural kingdoms- the Kingdom of Heaven (God’s kingdom), and the Kingdom of Darkness (the devil’s kingdom).
God’s M.O.– (John 3:16 NIV)- “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (New Testament verse was used because we are operating under the New Covenant)
The Devil’s M.O. – (John 10:10 NIV) “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I [Jesus] have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (I added [Jesus] for clarification purposes)
The Coronavirus is not God’s way of trying to get your attention or to force unbelievers to accept Jesus. These kinds of statements are made by people who do not understand the New Covenant and have forgotten that the devil wants to steal, kill, and destroy (and the Coronavirus has done all three!)
So, if it is not God punishing us- why is he allowing us to suffer? Good question.
The truth is, we are not operating in the power and authority that we received when we accepted Jesus into our hearts and became born again. Being born again not only secures our salvation- it also means that we can walk in complete healing and prosperity as sons and daughters of the One True Almighty God!
However, we need to think, speak, and act in alignment with the promises and power described God’s Word! We need to accept our inheritance! That is how God’s power can move in our lives.
The devil is coming against us, but we can and will prevail!
