Whence cometh coronavirus?
From gourmand chinks with a mania for boiled bats and international air travel?
From a secret laboratory where Jew bioengineers seek world-wide payback for what’s alleged on the Hitler Channel?
From the scheming minds of ZOG hoaxsters itching to stick compulsory, toxin-loaded needles into that dumb sonofabitch, Whitey?
Take your pick. But whatever or whoever caused the current crisis, and whether it was planned or an unfortunate accident, the end result will likely be the same: a global economic depression and the end of civil liberties for our people.
Things are going to get tough for us. How tough? Somewhere between unpleasantly tough and unbearably tough. The next few months should give us a good indication as to which end of the scale the arrow is going to sit.
The best advice I can offer is somebody else’s. Pray as if everything depends on Yahweh, but act as if everything depends on you.
I’m not here to tell you how to pray or act. I assume you’re already well-versed on how to do both. But what I will do is provide a list of Scriptures to remind us that, in the words of a song I used to sing in my old Pentecostal church, we have a great big wonderful God (halleujah!).
Yahweh will see us through this and every other real or manufactured crisis that bares its frightful teeth at us between now and when we vacate these temporary accommodations. We have His Word on it. But we must believe that we do. The promises of divine supply, healing, protection, and deliverance that run the length and breadth of Holy Writ require us to exercise faith to actuate them in our lives.
How do we get faith?
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
We get faith by feeding our spirit on the Word daily, by reading, speaking, and pondering Yahweh’s promises, until we no longer struggle to believe them, we believe them with ease.
In times of crisis and when our faith is running low, we need to focus on His promises rather than worrying about what the Juden are up to or when we’re supposed to observe the sabbath. The instruction to forget not all His benefits (Psalm 103:2) applies doubly so in these situations.
I’ll kick the list off with, for me, the first verse that springs to mind in trying circumstances. This and the other verses in the list come from the Amplified Bible.
God is our refuge and strength [mighty and impenetrable], A very present and well-proved help in trouble.
The Book of Psalms is my favorite book in the Bible. Whenever I need comfort or encouragement, I rush straight to its dog-eared, heavily underlined pages.
Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.
Psalms is my favorite book, and Psalm 34 my favorite chapter. This chapter alone contains sufficient spiritual meat to sustain us during any crisis.
Psalm 34:4, 6, 7
4 I sought (inquired of) the Lord and required Him [of necessity and on the authority of His Word], and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The Angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe] and each of them He delivers.
Concerned about food shortages? Don’t be.
The young lions lack food and suffer hunger, but they who seek (inquire of and require) the Lord [by right of their need and on the authority of His Word], none of them shall lack any beneficial thing.
31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Will Yahweh heal us if we get the coronavirus? Although divine healing isn’t guaranteed to us all the time, every time, to say Yahweh never heals His people and that miraculous healing is a thing of the distant past, would be as false a statement as saying He’s obliged to keep us in tip-top health until we pass blissfully away in our sleep. The truth is we should seek Yahweh’s healing hand when necessary, but shouldn’t take not being healed as a sign He’s forsaken us. Whatever ails, disables, or disfigures us will be gone forever once He gives us immortal bodies.
All that considered, here are some verses on healing.
Saying, If you will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord your God and will do what is right in His sight, and will listen to and obey His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon you which I brought upon the Egyptians, for I am the Lord Who heals you.
Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for You are my praise.
14 Is anyone among you sick? He should call in the church elders (the spiritual guides). And they should pray over him, anointing him with oil in the Lord’s name.
15 And the prayer [that is] of faith will save him who is sick, and the Lord will restore him; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
With non-whites and bogans running wilder in our cities and suburbs because of widespread coronavirus panic, we’re going to need Yahweh’s supernatural intervention at times to keep us safe.
Be strong, courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your God Who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].
This is a good’n.
Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.
As far as presenting every uplifting verse in Scripture goes, this list falls about 1000 verses shy. Those 1000 or so other verses await you in the pages of your Bible. Make your own list. Print several copies and stick them in strategic locations throughout your house. The inside of your dunny door is a good place. The outside of your fridge and pantry doors are also good. But the best place is on your person. That way you can remind yourself of Yahweh’s promises and your privileged position in Yahshua the Christ anywhere and at any time. The more reminding you do, the more resilient your faith will be. Resilient enough to overcome the end times. And the stupid-looking coronacrisis.
