The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’s; But the earth He has given to the children of men – Psalm 115:16.
Christianity does not exist for those who believe to escape and take cover from the troubles of this world when they come! We are not in the hour of calamity supposed to be offering trembling prayers for our own protection, our family and Church members. We already abide in protection, what touches and destroys the unbeliever cannot harm us. We have living in us the Spirit of God without measure, We have been born of the Spirit so that we may take our place of authority and execute justice upon the earth.
The Gospel of our salvation is preached to us that we may be knowledgeable and equiped, the Pastor is not discipling for himself a people that will rally behind him but a people that will be useful to Christ Jesus in all diligence and submission. We are not of the world, we don’t see as the world sees and thus cannot respond as the world responds. We have the mind of Christ so when fear and darkness covers the earth, we shine like stars in the sky proclaiming the coming of our King and His everlasting Kingdom in all wisdom and boldness.
We write these things for you. We write these things because the Lord would have us write them to you, that “the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power” [Ephesians 1:18]. Jesus died not only to save us, but we were also endued with power to live lives that glorify the Father, lives of victory, power and dominion over every situation.
All things are yours! [1 Corinthians 3:21] Whatever it may be you have the power over it. There’s no reason to fear, we are not cooped up at home because we are scared of a virus. All things work for our good, the ungodly don’t have this knowledge, while we are being encouraged in faith their torment and panic is mounting, we, you and the Word in your mouth are the only hope they have to escape the wave that is sweeping many away. You are the answer, your Spirit led prayers, your obedience to the Spirit of God at this time, is the answer! God has given the earth to YOU, right now the earth is in distress, what will YOU do?
