The global outpouring and is coronavirus God’s judgement?

In Joel 2 and Acts 2 we read that in the end times God will pour out His Spirit on all flesh. In John 14 verse 12 Jesus says “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”

We live in days when God is calling ALL  believers to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and through His anointing we can pray for the sick and see them healed, even see the dead raised as a testimony of who He is, His love, and to validate the message that He is the only way to the Father (John 14 6-7) and only when we give Him our lives can we be saved from an eternal Hell to an eternity with Him (John 3 16) . God will use every situation, especially adversity to prepare our hearts and draw us closer to Him. Many believe we are seeing a soon coming global outpouring of the glory of God to bring in a harvest of many souls. Will this be the final outpouring before Jesus returns? I don’t know, but there is an urgency to share like never before, and we are all called to, not just high profile ministers who operate with a gift of healing and working of miracles, but God wants to give authority to many believers.

I believe He is using the current crisis to cause unbelievers to seek Him and prepare His bride to share His gospel through demonstrations of power but did God send the coronavirus pandemic in judgement?

There have been many views and opinions that have been stated but are misleading. Here are some that I believe are wrong and why.

* God has sent the virus as judgement

I do not believe this is true. We live in a dispensation of grace – Jesus took sickness and sin on the cross – Romans 6 23 Galatians 3 13 Jesus took the punishment for our sins John 5 22 “ For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:” Jesus reaches out in love to all who will accept His free gift of salvation.

There WILL be a time of judgement when all who have rejected Jesus Christ are punished for their sins.
In the Tribulation millions will die of plague Revelation 6: 8 but we are not in that time yet.
So does that mean that the coronavirus crisis is not related to the millions of abortions, attack on the sanctity of marriage, lawlessness and turning away from God? No because although God promises to protect believers through His covenant sealed by the blood Jesus shed, promises such as are found in Psalm 91 are for believers only. This means that if you don’t know Jesus as Lord and Saviour you are vulnerable to demonic attack and disease , you don’t have the same covering that believers have even though God loves you very much and wants you to come to Him. Some say that suffering the consequences of sin is the same as judgement. I do not agree. For example, if you walk into a wall because you did not take care to look where you are going does that mean that God slammed you into the wall as judgement? No! You did not take due care and the consequences were painful, that is all.

* God sent the virus to give us a rest.

Again that is wrong. He might use it for that for some, but try telling that to our brave health and care workers who are working night and day, those suffering with the virus and grieving and worried family members.

* God sent the virus because He wants to stop mass gatherings, large churches and move to online services.

That is not true. In Heaven now millions of saints and angels are around God’s throne worshiping Him and there are parties in Heaven, God is not into people being isolated.

* God sent the virus to prepare His people’s hearts to share the gospel in greater dimensions of His love and power.

It is true that God can and does use every adverse situation for His glory Romans 8 28 says “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” It is true He is preparing believers to share the gospel in greater dimensions of His love and power, for us to go to deeper levels of repentance and share with people now, but He hasn’t sent the virus otherwise why should we pray against it? The word corona is Latin and means crown. Coronavirus is a counterfeit crown of the enemy that I believe has come from Hell designed to bring destruction and death and cause the nations to be in economic subjugation to those who do not believe in the sovereignty of nations. Jesus is The One True King of Kings. We pray for His kingdom to come and His will be done “on Earth as it is in Heaven.” There is NO sickness in Heaven.

You can never go wrong with God’s Word and His Spirit.

I would like to encourage you to read your Bible everyday, speak out His promises and thank Him for your protection, prosperity and health, give Him all the praise and the glory, worship Him alone, pray and commune with Him, and you will know His peace (Isaiah 26 verse 3) as keep your eyes focused on Him in the days ahead. If you do not yet know for sure where you will go when you die, get right with God now, and make Jesus Christ your Lord and Saviour today!
