“And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart. And the Lord said, I WILL DESTROY MAN WHOM I HAVE CREATED, FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH; etc. for it repenteth me that I have made them.”-GENESIS 5:7.
God actually destroyed that generation of Noah with flood. In that generation, only Noah and his entire household, were saved, from God’s destruction, because they entered into the ark, which God commanded Noah to build-GENESIS 7:7-9.
As written in JOHN 5:19, even the present whole world lieth in wickedness, as it was in that generation of Noah. And because the judgment of God, which shall begin at the house of God, is not executed speedily against every evil work, the hearts of men are set to continue in their wickedness- ECCLESIASTES 8:11. The inhabitants of the world and even the people of God, despise the riches of the goodness, the forbearance and long-suffering of God towards them, whereas they are meant to lead them to repentance-ROMANS 2:4.The inhabitants of the world, after their hardness and impenitent heart, have heaped up unto themselves, the wrath of God, against the day of His wrath, and the revelation of His righteous judgment-ROMANS 2:5.
Coronavirus is one of the four judgments of God upon the inhabitants of the world, that is full of bloody crimes, and bedeviled with corruption, love of money and all kinds of immoralities, even amongst the people of God. In MATTHEW 24:8, these judgments are the beginning of sorrows, that are yet to come upon the world, until the world is finally destroyed, after the rapture of the righteous nation that will keep the truth to the end-ISAIAH 26:2.
God has promised not to destroy the present world with a flood but with His four judgments, which are- SWORD, FAMINE, NOISOME BEAST AND PESTILENCE. Coronavirus which is causing the death of millions of inhabitants of the world, is one of these noisome beasts. The only way the people of God can escape this judgment of God, is when they enter into the ARK OF TRUTH, which is the only ARK OF SAFETY, similar to Noah’s ARK- PSALM 91:4b.
The God-fearing president of Tanzania, recently made a nation-wide broadcast to his people and I quote, “I WILL NOT SHUT DOWN CHURCHES BECAUSE JESUS CHRIST IS BIGGER THAN CORONAVIRUS. THE CHURCH IS THE BODY OF CHRIST. CORONAVIRUS IS DEMONIC AND CANNOT STAND THE POWER IN THE BODY OF CHRIST. IT WILL BURN! TRUE HEALING CAN ONLY BE FOUND IN CHURCHES.”
Unfortunately, in some states in Nigeria, the churches of Christ, that are supposed to be the houses of prayer, against this noisome beast, known as Coronavirus, have been rendered desolate, a regrettable situation, which is grieving the heart of Jesus-MATTHEW 21:13.
In 1 JOHN 2:18, it is written that it is the end-time, in which many anti-Christs have come under one umbrella, advocating for the closure of churches. The body of Christ is not an association, neither is it an organization, but it is an ORGANISM, spiritually nurtured by the truth!
