Why is this happening? The world is being shut down. You can’t go to the bar, or the movies, or a concert. You can’t go to a novely shop or candy shop or sit down to a dinner in a restaurant. You can’t even go to church.
It’s a wake up call, at least that is what I believe. God has shut down everything but the bare essentials like a roof over your head and food to eat. Nations are struggly io take care of their populations whose jobs have fallen by the wayside. All nations, not just us in the United States. It is world wide.
Maybe it will cause some of you to stop and think. Now is the perfect time to be doing that because you have plenty of time with less distractions. You Sunday Christians, you know who you are. The ones who act all pious and righteous on Sunday mornings and then discuss with your friends what bar to meet up at after the service. What do you think now?
Those of you who have spent most of your life running around, doing whatever you wanted without a second thought on who you might be hurting or abusing, those of you who think that life is all about keeping up with the Joneses, accumulating material wealth, presenting yourself as a person to be envied, do you think this will have no effect on you?
What about you parents who haven’t given a second thought about your children’s spiritual health? It didn’t seem to bother you that they took prayer out of school. You haven’t even discussed who God or Jesus was and some of you have even passed on your belief that there is no God instead of letting your children choose what to believe as they get older. Remember, children are usually a product of their environment.
I’m sorry if this seems crude. Those of you who have followed my articles know that I prefer to write about something happy and uplifting, but I just can’t get this out of my mind. I am so depressed over this situation.
It hasn’t changed my lifestyle much since we have been homebodies for years due to compromised immune systems. We’ve just had to do some tweaking here and there. What is bothering me the most is the blindness of so many.
America blames it on the Chinese, the Chinese blame it on America. Many believe it is hyped up by the media and isn’t near as bad as everyone claims it is, but If you want to see the results up front, check out a rural town with a small hospital that has had to close down all it’s specialty clinics and only allows Emergency cases, chemo and IV therapy patients to enter the doors. Listen to the quietness on the streets. There isn’t much traffic and you don’t hear too many children outside playing. This is real folks, this isn’t a game. It is serious.
God said in 2 Chronicles 7: 14-15 “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.”
But what if it he isn’t playing games anymore, what if he is finally tired of all the immorality, evil and sin in this world like he was when he destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah? or what if it is getting close for Jesus to return?
Matthew 4: 4-8 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 rumors 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.
What if the prophecies in Revelations are starting to come true? “Revelation 6:8 I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth “to kill” by sword, “famine and plague”, and by the wild beasts of the earth.”
Maybe it’s time to take stock of your life. Maybe that is why this is happening. Maybe God is giving the earth one more chance to turn to him?
