Covid 19 also known as Corona Virus has became a household name throughout the world. It is mentioned, and talked about everywhere. This has given rise to conferences, meetings and even generated serious debates, sometimes, it has given birth to serious arguments, especially on the use of chloroquine tablet as a cure.
The purpose of this write-up is not to join a debate or generate another one but to consider three things, the unassailable truth about this current pandemic.
One, those who are very familiar with manual of life are not ignorant of the breaking out of Corona virus and its invasion of many countries. It is contained in the manual of life, although it was not so code named. The Lord of the universe and heaven revealed to those who believe in Him thus,
“Take heed that no man deceive you. V4
… there shall be pestilence… in diverse places v7
Behold, I have told you before v 25. Matthew 24:4,725. KJV.
Although King of Kings, Jesus Christ, did not call it Covid 19 or Corona Virus, but this name is included in the word “pestilences”. Remember that there have been a cry over the outbreak of laser fever with which the world battled for years. There was no Covid 19 then. It is not a curse, it is a declared truth that pestilences are part of signs of Christ coming to take His own, the whole world should expect another or other pandemic. Do not fear, there is a way out!
Two, every government and non-governmental organisations are having sleepless nights on how to curb the menace of Covid 19, it is a welcome and commendable effort to save people’s lives worldwide. Every individual is being enlightened on how they can prevent Covid 19; various suggestions are being taken so that each person will not be infected. This will ensure that they do not die before their time. This is a nice one too.
However, one thing is not debatable, and no one is so much concerned about it, one day and in a way, everyone at different times will depart this earth. A call to come home to give account of stewardship is not a thing preventable nor can it be taken back from whom He had given such calls. What are, government, NGOs and individuals doing about it(death)?
Not only this, what Covid 19 is announcing is not also taken into cognisance. The impending coming of the Master of the Universe that is imminent. If you love yourself, it is important that you start to prepare to meet Him. He is coming to take His saints to where He is and to give them rewards. Have you heard about it? What steps have you taken to become one of His to receive good rewards? No government can help you. No NGOs can assist you, HELP YOURSELF! John 14:3* Revelation 22:12.
Third, One unavoidable step, call it step one, to be taken by anyone suspected to have been infected by Corona Virus is to keep him in an isolated place where he will be quarantined to confirm his infection. Many people are advised to keep in doors and live separately to avoid contacting the manace.
People abide by this. This is a good one!
Do you know, dear reader, that there is a safe place into which you can run so as to avoid this pandemic or any other menace? In the Manual of life, The Holy Bible, it is declared in Proverbs 18:10.
“The name of the Lord is a strong tower :the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.” King James Version.(kjv).
This is a truth forever. The name of the Lord had been, still is and will forever be a safe haven for all those who run to Him for safety of all kinds, including safety from Corona Virus. Have you run to the strong tower? Are you still there?
If the answer is yes, then you do not need to fear Coronavirus because it has no power to reach you in that strong tower, which is the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
If the answer is no, it means you can easily fall prey to the hand of dreadful convid 19. This ought not to be so. Why should you lose your life when a safety haven is already provided? How do you run into this as your Strong Tower?
It is a simple matter. There where you are, believe and confess that you are a sinner who cannot safe himself from misdeeds. Name your wrong doings one by one. Invite Jesus Christ to cleanse you from all your bad habits. Tell Him to come into your life and live there forever, surrender to Him as your Lord and Saviour forever. Request that He gives you His Holy Spirit through whom He will dwell and direct you forever.
After this, obtain a copy of the manual of life, The Holy Bible, read and meditate in it daily. Do according to the instructions contained in it. Join an assembly of Saints where they live according to the Holy Scriptures. As soon as you do this, your safety is sure.
Stay blessed and prepared for the coming of the Lord.
