Psalm 37:5 (AMP)
“Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him also and He will do it.”
We are living in a time when governments and elected officials are overstepping their bounds and suppressing the Church. Many pastors are manipulated by local mayors and governors, rather than inspired by God’s Word or honoring the code of their callings. Many pastors are enjoying a sabbatical during this COVID narrative that the left is using to shut our economy down so that President Trump will not be elected. They couldn’t impeach President Trump. Whether you agree with this statement or not, you can’t argue that the numbers at the Center for Disease Control and WHO are being altered and manipulated. If you think I’m crazy, then wait till after the November elections in 3 months and watch all this hype and publicity disappear. Mysteriously, all the cities that democrat or “blue” mayors and democrat or “blue” governors have closed down – their economies and suppressed school openings or business openings or restrictions will suddenly go away. You will also see a huge uprising, and these politicians that don’t care about your or my ability to make a living will be voted out of office. Americans on the left or the right will only stand for so much nonsense before they revolt and vote these economy alarmists and recourse out.
Example 1: If you test positive, every time you return to a doctor, they list that visit in national statistics as a new COVID case.
Example 2: If you had COVID, which was created and released into our country by China and the scientists in 2019, and your immune system prevailed and you are over it, the CDC and WHO will list you as a new case.
Example 3: Scientists now say that a new wave of respiratory issues will emanate from all the carbon dioxide people are re-breathing into their lungs from wearing masks.
Example 4: COVID is one of many cold viruses.
Example 5: COVID has mutated, and human’s immune system needs to adjust and learn to combat germs. That is what the immune system is created to do. This is an amazing attribute. So as younger, healthier people contract colds and germs, our immune system builds up resistance and eventually a society overcomes.
Therefore now more than ever we need to keep committed to the Great Commission stated in
Mark 16:15, Luke 14:23, Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:7-8. We are commanded to “go” from a higher power than local or national government.
“Commit your way” means walking and moving forward, not hiding in your home or behind some mask re-breathing carbon dioxide. Get out and minister in public; help others in this crisis.
Anti-COVID medicine is available when prayer is launched in your personal life.
Jude 20 (AMP)
“But you, beloved, build yourselves up on [the foundation of] your most holy faith [continually progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], pray in the Holy Spirit…”
Proverbs 16:3 (AMP)
“Commit your works to the LORD [submit and trust them to Him],
And your plans will succeed [if you respond to His will and guidance].”
The ordinances of the church must be done in person. Water baptisms, baby dedications, administering communion to the sick and bed ridden. The doctrine is of the laying on of hands (Heb. 6:1).
We may adjust our schedule and our walk. Communion helps us adjust. Communion nullifies idle words. Our relatives and friends will see us as a new creation.
At the race track, the referee says, “Start your engines.” So, race car drivers warm their engines. Then a checkered flag and gunshot go off and the race begins. Jesus fired the gun at Calvary. His blood is the checkered flag. You have been commanded to “go”.
Act 1:8 (AMP)
“But you will receive power and ability when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be My witnesses [to tell people about Me] both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the ends of the earth.”
We are starting our spiritual engines, ready to start walking. In the spirit we are pushing powers of darkness back if we engage publicly and not shrink back.
“But our way is not that of those who shrink back to destruction, but [we are] of those who believe [relying on God through faith in Jesus Christ, the Messiah] and by this confident faith preserve the soul.”
If anyone had a reason to idle back, to throttle back, to relax a little, it was Paul the Apostle. He had been beaten, stoned, shipwrecked, and on and on. Imagine Paul shrinking back? How it would have affected us today. We would have excuses, but now none.
Acts 20:20-24 (AMP)
“ [you know] how I did not shrink back in fear from telling you anything that was for your benefit, or from teaching you in public meetings, and from house to house…”
Conflict with victory breeds assurance. Self-confidence in the Lord is obtained when one comes through or out of something successfully. We see here:
1 John 4:17 (AMP) “In this [union and fellowship with Him], love is completed and perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him]; because as He is, so are we in this world.”
Significance comes out of prayer. Destiny and purpose are refined. Show me someone who prays in the Sprit to the point of breakthrough or saturation, and I will show you someone who has light in their eyes, and a skip in their step. Prayer is sickle that cuts through nonsense, insignificance, and mundaneness.
Now our power base is in God’s cocoon of prayer. True rest and soul peace comes when we pray to a point of Kingdom awareness or presence. We are not simpletons. We were not made to have someone else preach to us everything and make all of our decisions. Jesus made a way where we can directly communicate with the Father.
We will not be lukewarm in this time of history, but our efforts will bring forth everlasting fruit. As a youth, do you remember skipping stones in a lake of water? The amount of ripples depends on your efforts.
Cats always land on their feet. God gave them a special ability. The way cats manage to land on their feet is called the righting reflex. They can turn themselves the right way around during the fall to land safely on their feet. Their low body to weight ratio also helps cats to land on their feet as it manages to slow their velocity while falling. If God put this in a cat, what do you think he will do in and through and for and to his sons and daughters?
St. Francis of Assisi said, “A cat purring on your lap is more healing than any drug in the world, as the vibrations you are receiving are of pure love and contentment”. Only 2 countries in the world allow open drug commercials on TV. The USA is one of them. It has become so normal to see drug advertisements, that so many Americans and Christians have heavily justified prescription drug intake for any and all ailments, rather than stand on God’s Word or choose God’s healing.
The next step of the WHO is mandatory COVID vaccinations. If you do not submit, you will not be allowed into the marketplace to work. Cross God’s bridge today, or WHO will herd you over their bridge tomorrow.
We need a Word as we go out in public. Not bravado or zeal, but a Word of God against COVID. Have you taken your serum or had your Holy Ghost inoculation today at the prayer table?
Matthew 4:4 (AMP)“But Jesus replied, “It is written and forever remains written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God.’”
This “word” in Greek means “rhema” or “spoken word”. Let God speak to you today something that brings fire in your belly and true confidence in your soul. When you receive a Word from God in prayer, it’s like rocket fuel. You feel inspired, envisioned, and motivated to go in a certain direction. Motivated to continue, perhaps all alone, standing in faith about a certain issue. You have hope, courage.
God’s words are sweet like honey. They leave a good taste. We thank you once again, Lord, for significance. A honey of a day. A sweet day!
Song of Solomon 4:11 (AMP)
“Your lips, my [promised] bride, drip honey [as the honeycomb]
Honey and milk are under your tongue, and the fragrance of your garments is like the fragrance of Lebanon.”
This tool is sharp and effective. It causes the poeple in your life to have ears to hear. Not because of suaveness, our good looks or humor, but Gods fragrance.
