Covid is not prejudice. Covid doesn’t care about our skin color, education, Torah knowledge, or the size of our bank account. Some of the most righteous, holy people, whether in leadership or among friends and family have gotten covid, and some have died regardless of their walk–regardless of their age or health. And the Creator of the heavens and the earth is not unaware.
Some people have proclaimed no vax, no mask, HaShem will protect us, but many of those people are now dead. Others have got the jab and have masked up, but this did not stop covid from killing them or infecting them. Sunday keepers and Sabbath keepers alike have gotten covid.
We need humility.
We need to be humble with our words concerning politics, vaccines, our titles with Torah in front of it, or Christian. We must stop referring to people as “us versus them.” “Those idiots. Those blind fools.”
The Father told Jeremiah something that rings true for our nation. He said, tell them their gods are as many as their cities. He told Isaiah that He was going to destroy both the righteous and the wicked. Many say that YHVH does not destroy both the righteous and wicked. But Job sure suffered. Many people who are considered righteous in this generation are still getting sick. Sickness is just one of the things we deal with in this fallen world. Our walk or faith is not a tool to point fingers at people and accuse them of deserving covid or that the person is under a curse due to not living right. The whole world is under a pandemic. Again, the Creator of the heavens and the earth is not unaware. Nor does the Holy One miss a sparrow that falls to the ground.
“So do not be afraid of them. For there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, and nothing hidden that will not be made known. What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the housetops.
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?h Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” (Matthew 10:26-31).
The Holy One spoke to Daniel and told him “there will be a time of distress such has never occurred.” He tells Daniel everyone who is found written in the Book will be rescued.
First comes distress (dire straits), then comes the rescue. Who rescues who? Do we save ourselves? Do we have the power to stop the Hand of Elohim and what He allows? Did Job?
Yeshua said, “For nation shall rise against nation, and reign against reign. And there shall be scarcities of food and DEADLY DISEASES and earthquakes in places.
“And all these are the beginning of birth pains.”
Birth pains are no kid’s game. I have been in labor for hours without an epidural, and the pain was so bad I passed out in between contractions. My hair was knotted to my head. I awoke with screams at the terror of another round.
Yeshua did not say that the nations would elect righteous leaders, take back their governments and cleanse the earth. He said, “Nation will rise against Nation.”
Four horses in Revelations were riding and bringing woes, and the first one wore a crown (corona). One horse was sickly and green.
Yeshua did not say we would not be sick. He said, “deadly disease was coming.”
“And if those days were not shortened, no flesh would be saved, but for the sake of the chosen ones those days shall be shortened.” (Matt 24:22).
His Word is Truth and stands firm in the heavenlies.
Do not fear death.
Do not fear disease.
Fear the One who knows the end from the beginning. The Aleph and the Tov.
Fear the One who knows the number of our days–the number of hairs on our heads.
During these days, when the love of many has waxed cold, let us be kinder to one another and realize that we are not in control and no man can save us.
A King is coming. His Name is Yeshua Messiah. He was and is the Living Word, and He will return when the Father says, “Now is the time, My Son.” Until then, may we be humble servants. May we use wisdom in our gatherings and use wisdom in our speech. May we love the vaxed and unvaxed–the masked and unmasked, the righteous and unrighteous. May we love those who need a doctor. May we realize that we may need a doctor to cut away the flesh on our hearts and a dentist to cleanse our mouths. May we know that we are just flesh, here today and gone tomorrow.
“The grass withers and the flowers fall when the breath of the LORD blows on them; indeed, the people are grass. The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our Yah stands forever.
Oh, how we need Him. Oh, how the world needs Him. Oh, that we would keep our eyes on Him.
