Covid is not prejudice. Covid doesn’t care about our skin color, education, Biblical 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 or religion. And the Creator of the heavens and the earth is not unaware.
Some people have proclaimed no vax, no mask, the Holy One 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. Muslims and Jews, Buddhist and atheist. People from all walks of life in every nation have contracted Covid. Innocent children sit in Cancer hospitals today and it’s not because they are under a generational curse. For more on curses click HERE.
We need humility.
We need to be humble with our words concerning politics, vaccines, our titles with Torah in front of it, or Christian or? 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 the Holy one does not destroy both the righteous and the wicked. But Job sure suffered and John the Baptist lost his head. We are told of a people the world was not worthy of.
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.
Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Instead, fear the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? 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. The beginning and the ending.
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. Yes, and stand at the gate, proclaiming the good news and teaching truth with humility. 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. We cannot live in fear. At the end of the day, we can exercise, eat right, use oils, natural medicines, detox, etc, and still die an early death for one reason or another.
My mother walked for a good 4 or 5 miles at least 4 days a week. She ate healthy, took vitamins and never smoked, never drank except at a wedding or once in a blue moon. She was often sick with many diseases including Parkinson’s. My father ate badly. He never worked out or walked. For the last 25 years of his life, he started his morning with McDonald’s breakfast and the Bible—then Wendy’s cheeseburgers for lunch unless one of us cooked or took him some place healthier while visiting. Although he had to have bypass surgery, He lived to be almost 87 years old. I’m not condoning his eating habits, but I do believe our days are numbered. Can we shorten them? Possibly. Taking care of our body, mind, and spirit are important but that does not mean we will never get sick or suffer. Matter a fact, I’d question more our spiritual condition if we never suffered.
Let us love one another and guard our hearts and our words. Those sick need compassion and prayers that are not wrongful. A good question to ask is how would I want to be prayed for if I were in their shoes.
