There Is Hope During This Season of Coronavirus

Posted on May 12, 2020 at 12:43 PM Comments comments (2)
Praise God for mercy; He continues to call us out of this world and back into his grace.  It is during this season that we are finally realizing that we need God's mercy and grace to make it thru, and that we can not rely on our limited abilities.  Praise Jesus, He has sat the whole world still so they can hear him, and yet he still made provisions to meet our needs.  It is unfortunate that there are casualties during spiritual battles, but praise God we who are still alive have an opportunity to repent, turn back to our heavenly father, and seek his son, "Jesus",  for the true value of life.  Praise God that  we are not defined by man's eyes, but God's heart.  Let this season perform its perfect work; turn away from our wicked ways and back to Jesus.  In Jesus we have all that we need and more.



Matthew 6:33 (King James Version)

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

An Opportunity For Growth

Praise God Everyone,

This pandemic is an opportunity to grow closer to the Lord. God has his way of sitting us still so that we can see and hear him as he makes His will known to us. Take this opportunity to examine your relationship with Him; to seek Him for understanding, direction, and rest. Rest knowing that he is in control of all things good and evil. He said he will never leave you nor forsake you, and that he will supply your every need according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus. When you consider your life, all that you had, have, and will have comes from Jesus alone and not of yourselves. As we go thru, do so trusting and resting in Christ knowing that your life was bought by his blood on a tree he made his throne of grace. ALL FOR YOU.

Praise God for this opportunity to grow in Grace!!!!!

Jesus Is The Only Answer To The Coronavirus

If you are afraid, confused, or feel lost about where your life is at this moment, or where it is going due to the coronavirus.  Let me assure you that Jesus is the only answer to your concerns.   We have turned our backs on God, and have decided to live in the vanity of our minds.  Doing what we want, how we want, contrary to his word.  Romans 1:25 speaks specifically to how we got here.  If we really want to overcome the Coronavirus, we MUST do exactly what God commands in
2 Chronicles 7:14, repent, humble ourselves, and seek his face.  Then watch God move.

Romans 1
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

2 Chronicles
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land

Coronavirus Fears

So many live in fear of the unknown, when instead they should seek after the one who knows all thing so that they may not live in fear.  The last response that should never enter the mind of Christians is to muffle the word of God by closing churches.  Instead scream to the ends of the earth the words of God in


If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
