Unnecessary

I am tired of those that exaggerate and embellish the word of God. And for what reason?

Lately I’ve heard statements on Loveworld television like Jesus is more real to me than you. Or Jesus is more real to me than my own skin. These people haven’t looked up the definition of real. Something is either real or it isn’t. I don’t think this exaggeration of the reality of God helps anyone to find Christ.

He is real, but he may or may not appear to you in a vision or in a dream. Many come to faith through belief. Romans 10:17 KJV says So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. So we see that understanding (of faith) is granted by God. May we be so blessed.

Another thing I’d heard recently on Sid Roth was a man saying Jesus had appeared to him and told him to defend Jesus and the Father – to say that they had nothing to do with Covid-19. It may or may not have been purposely started by God, but it was allowed with the knowledge of God. God doesn’t need to be defended by a human being that doesn’t understand the power of God. If God wanted to stop Covid-19 he certainly could have. He is all powerful.

A Test of Faith

I admit I don’t know all the answers, but I do recognize the test. Should Christians attend church or not?

To me and I suppose most people it makes sense that the government can request or order certain actions in times of great need. Public health can be protected they say with a stay at home order.

But let’s take a moment and examine what the Holy Bible says about the new coronavirus and attending church.

Hebrews 10:24-25 KJV And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: [25] Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is ; but exhorting one another : and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

Matthew 18:20 KJV For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

And let’s not forget the cure: James 5:14-15 KJV Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: [15] And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

Another Word on Covid-19

It seems like everyone has something to say about the new coronavirus. I hear messages on television, radio, and even my cellphone. It seems every company I’ve ever dealt with, plus some, have an email with a comment.

Here’s my comment and some questions from Malachi 4:5-6 KJV: Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord : [6] And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

Does this speak of a future event? I believe it does. It could speak of Jesus or it could speak of some other Elijah type, yet to come in the future. But what a monumental task. How do you strengthen the love of a family and prevent a worldwide curse?

Perhaps, perhaps – you make them stay home and spend time together as a family.
