People are in total shock like they have been awakened to a dysfunctional world, it’s like being suddenly cast into some sort of Twilight zone. The streets are empty, the shelves are empty at the market, and it’s rather haunting seeing so many people in the West wearing a face mask. Every day we get updates on the number of infected people from the virus and how many deaths the world has just counted. For the first time in history everyone is being asked, some being told, to stay in their homes, not go to church, and limit their gatherings to ten people or less. This is already having a tremendous effect on the psyche of humanity. This isolation from physical contact with family and friends, with a sudden pull back from other friends on social media, is beginning to have an effect on the best of us. People are already starting to experience higher levels of stress, anxiety, panic attacks, and even depression. Schedules have been skewed and sleeping has become more erratic. People are crying out to their God and to their governments, asking what is going on? They are looking under every rock and behind every tree to find the answers they seek. Fear is purposefully driving people to chase after anyone and everyone who claims to have the truth about what’s going on in the world.
A couple of weeks ago we talked about how to hear God, see my video, “Why Can’t I hear God.” Today, we want to show you how important it is to listen to God before you speak. There are many people speaking today on the news media and social media that are not listening to God first before they speak. This is creating a lot of confusion and unfortunately leading a lot of people astray making them prime candidates for the coming Antichrist or the Beast of Revelation to draw them into his diabolical net. I noticed most people on social media don’t speak but share what someone else says. Well, let’s be clear, although you did not physically speak it yourself, the moment you shared it, then it became your voice. You are now responsible for it as if you spoke it yourself. The power of speaking forth words is well beyond our understanding (we will talk more about that later). Many a man, and especially Jesus Christ and His followers, turned the world upside down through their speaking forth. If God’s followers can do that, then be rest assured that Satan and his followers are trying to do the same thing. Therefore, we need to be careful when we speak our words forth either verbally or in a shared post. Believe me, they will have a tremendous impact on others and the world at large to build up or to destroy.
The Antichrist is already speaking through many people bringing his malicious power upon the earth leading many people to believe the lie and reject the truth. His biggest lie right now is to convince the unbelieving world that this Coronavirus, that’s causing a global pandemic, is not a plague or woe sent by God but just a virus caused by many different things, such as a biological weapon or the result of 5G cell phone towers. Without entering into a full dissertation about 5G let me summarize that there is no evidence of harmful effects medically. By far these are not the only far-fetched conspiracy theories circulating on the internet, one other that I will mention is simply called Q. What’s alarmingly heretical about this one is that it claims that we are all good people contrary to our religious faith (either Muslim or Christian) and that the only truly sinful people in the world are those in power. They say if the State will lock them up, then everything will be rosy. Nothing is further from the truth, because we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Remove sin and our need for repentance will only destine us for the fiery pit of hell. There is great power in these spoken lies to create confusion, fear, and anxiety but most importantly to keep them from repentance because of God’s righteous plagues. As already stated, sharing these lies on the internet through your websites and social media is doing the devil’s work by speaking forth his lies to the world and most regrettably to your brothers and sisters in the Lord, possibly causing them to stumble too.
Yet, the answers that men are seeking are in the same place that they’ve always been, in the Word of God that’s made alive through the indwelling Spirit. In order to receive those words, you must not only be saved, but you must be close to the Lord and filled with His Spirit. You can’t flounder around in fear and expect to hear what the Lord has to say. The Bible says, “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you” (1Peter 4:12, ESV). Many Christians today, are both surprised and don’t realize that this is simply a trial to knock off the barnacles of the old sin nature to draw us closer to Him. Furthermore, they don’t realize that judgment will always begin with the house of God, for the Bible also says, “For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome of those who do not obey the gospel of God” (I Peter 4:17)? These are powerful words spoken by Apostle Peter, a follower of Jesus Christ. These are words that need to be spoken today and not the lies circulated by the devil. When we listen to God first and speak forth only what we hear from Him, then we witness the true power of His words that’s still capable of turning the whole world upside down. Even in lock-down and a changing economy, God’s precious children can continue to grow in truth and knowledge of their Savior. They can still become all that He wants us to be in Christ.
We must proclaim to the world that judgment is coming upon them, not to punish them, but to lead them to repentance. There is power in the words. We must proclaim to the fallen world that there is power in the gospel to make people into a new creation free from all of their past struggles. There is power in the words. We must proclaim to the world that the devil is a liar. There is power in the words. We must proclaim to the world that there are many false prophets and charlatans trying to lead you into darkness and great confusion by believing in and passing on their conspiracy theories. There is power in the words. We must proclaim that all these conspiracy theories are leading you and preparing you for the coming Antichrist and the Beast of Revelation. There is power in the words. We must proclaim that there is only one way to heaven and all other ways will lead you straight to hell. There is power in the words. We must proclaim that God has given us everything we need for life and godliness. There is power in the words. Finally, faith and trust in God alone will give you a new life in Christ, the seal of the Holy Spirit, and the promise of eternal life in heaven. There is power in the words. Dear children stop chasing after everything you see and read on the internet and return to the depth and width of God’s Holy Word, the Bible. There is power in the words, Amen.
