Christianity and covid-19

I have been quiet thus far on the subject because I did not want my words to add fuel to an already out of hand fire, but things have reached a point that it has become necessary for me to speak up, so please read & take it to heart.

True Christians, real Believers of God, know the words of God, and know they are safe:

Psalm 91
[1] He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

[2] I will say to Adonai (i.e., God), “My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!”

[3] For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence.

[4] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.

[5] You will not be afraid of the terror by night, or of the arrow that flies by day;

[6] Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.

[7] A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not approach you.

[8] You will only look on with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked.

[9] For you have made Adonai, my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place.

[10] No evil will befall you, nor will any plague come near your tent.
But we also have God’s command to obey our government leadership:

Romans 13
[1] Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.

[2] Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves.

[3] For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same;

[4] for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil.

[5] Therefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also for conscience’s sake.

[6] For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing.

[7] Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; respect to whom respect; honor to whom honor.

This is why it is good and just that Rodney Howard-Browne, and others like him, and those that follow them, be arrested for failing to comply with the order to “Stay at Home” – they are, in fact, defying God.

Because of their rebellion and disobedience toward God, especially in such a serious time as this, they set a bad example to the the people inside AND outside the church, & further damage the cause they claim to hold so dear.

Looking at all this sums up to: they don’t know Scripture correctly, they don’t lead the people carefully, and most importantly, they don’t lead in humility before God, everything about their teachings and leadership should be re-examined very carefully, followed by the open-eyed, honestly asked questions – “Have we learned God’s actual truth from them, and should they be leading?”

This is a wake-up call to all of us who claim to be members of the Body of Christ: Are we actually following Jesus Christ, or have we been duped by men in love with power rather than our God & Father, & His only begotten Son, Jesus?

In Concern for Your Soul,
Joshua David
