I am writing this letter to all of you because I strongly know that you neither see as the world sees nor hear as the world hears. This is why only you and others who see and hear as you would be the only ones who understand this message.
What do you think is happening to the world? Have you asked God and why, especially at this time?
At a time like this, the world is bound to focus on the symptoms rather than the cure. This virus – whatever it is called – is only a symptom, one that Satan is at present glorying in.
Is it that the devil does not understand the time that we are in? Far from it! He clearly does. However, it appears that many who are called by the name of God are not familiar with the time, hence Satan has crept in and appears to be winning at the moment.
Remember, sirs, that I said this message is for you because you do not see or hear as the world sees and hears. So, let me quote the God that works mightily in you to you.
Whenever God is bringing any of his PROPHECY or WORD to pass, Satan is always around the corner to profit. If those who are called by God’s name do not watch and pray and take heed, Satan may profit where they should profit and they lose where Satan should have lost. Just as now, he is having the upper hand, but the Spirit of the LORD in you is alive and is ready to conquer.
This virus has shown that when the time comes, the world will have no answer. But those who see and hear differently, who are the true children of God will have that answer, but only if they hope differently. We must not hope as the world hopes. This virus, if anything, bears witness to that fact. See as it has brought so-called great nations like China, USA, the UK, Italy, Canada and many more to their knees. These are countries who would sneeze and the world would catch cold. BUT WHO IS SNEEZING NOW and the world, in spite of covering its nose, is still catching cold?
Matthew chapter 24: verses 3 to 13 says: “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved”.
The world as we know it is changing, just as Jesus Christ said, but that does not mean the end has come. And this virus will go, but it will not be tbe last. Jesus never said ‘pestilence’, rather he said ‘pestilences’. In confirmation of the word of Christ, corona virus is not the first pandemic to so beset the world and it would not be the last. However, it is a sign that the world is in its last throes.
Those who are of God would lose if they allowed their love for God to “wax cold”. This is the only way Satan would and could win. As churches are being shut, the message is that those of God should not get carried away by (1) not being of sound mind (2) letting fear prevail (3) and being distracted away from God because of what presently happens around them. Many now run away from the house of God, but still patronise busy markets and malls, many of which are still open. Heaven knows how many items are picked, examined and later dropped without being bought. Who knows where those hands had been and wouldn’t someone later come and buy those items?
Those who are called by the name of God must be vigilant by not letting their love wax cold. While they obey the stay-at-home order by government, they should not get comfortable and let that which they see now distract them from that which the world does not see, but which only they can see. For this time shall pass and it would be terrible if they pass with it.
That is the message.
John 14:27-30: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe. Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me”.
