"For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?"   Esther 4:14

Have we been born for such a time as this? I know we have, but do you know we have?  If you do, you know God will supply everything we need to succeed in life and ministry – COVID-19 pandemics notwithstanding.  Hosea 4:6 says that God’s people perish for a lack of knowledge. That has always been the devil’s main weapon to use against us in spiritual combat. He is a totally defeated enemy, but if people don’t know that, and don’t know how to exercise their authority in Christ, the devil will paralyze them with fear & panic - the same as he does with all the unbelievers. The spirit of fear that has gripped the earth since this virus attack started is proof of that fact. 

My friend, if we know who we are in Christ, and know how to use the weapons we have been given, we see this virus pandemic differently than everyone else. We remain separated from the fear, confusion and chaos. Spiritually speaking, we see these as exciting times of outreach and evangelism! We were born for such a time as this! God is ready, willing and able to step in and crush this virus, and anoint us for worldwide outreach like never before. But because Jesus delegated His authority on earth to His church (Matthew 28:18-20, and Mark 16:15-18), He waits for His children to rise up and be who they already are – Stronger Men for Jesus (Luke 11:21-22).   

This entire pandemic is demonic in origin. It didn’t come from the Chinese, it came from Satan. He just used the Chinese to do his dirty work. The goal here for him is spiritual, not carnal. Of course, he wants to kill as many as he can physically, but primarily, he wants to shut down the church, and stop the preaching of the gospel. This COVID-19-FEAR VIRUS is an attack against the body of Christ, more than anything else. In response, we must ATTACK THE ATTACK.
