COVID Corruption and God’s Call

As the US opens up and the urgency of pandemic ebbs away here, more and more evidence is surfacing that the virus was created in the Wuhan Lab. Even left leaning media is reporting that yes, it is plausible and likely. Geri Ungurean’s blog, ‘Absolute Truth From the Word of God’ embeds a brief but succinct podcast by Dinesh D’Souza and a significant exposรฉ by left leaning Vanity Fair, ‘The Lab Leak Theory: Inside the Fight to Uncover COVID-19’s Origins’. You can see the post here

Is this a gargantuan crime scene? The epicenter of global calamity?

The great phenonemon here, aside from the virus itself, is the global capacity to coordinate media conglomerates and mass communication networks to censor research, evidence, and even input from involved scientists and researchers. As a result of F.O.I.L., evidence now implicates high ranking authorities to major search engines such as Google, effectively converting them into “spin engines”, giving falsehood a firm foundation and widespread credibility. Newscasters and government leaders promoted testimony and commentary from scientists who reinforced scenarios. Conveniently, dissenters were bullied, threatened, and ostracized.

After more than a year of COVID preoccupation, does anyone care about this surfacing truth? Many conservatives and believers challenged the strategic deception and now, as truth begins to surface, Christians are wise step back and contemplate our times.

If worldly corrupt, professional, powerful and wealthy men and women can fabricate an entirely false narrative to globally manipulate and deceive, imagine what supernatural powers can accomplish through such vessels. This ‘cover-up’ was the best of human effort. That fact alone should jump start believers, not toward the Republican party, or to rally around charismatic whistleblowers or gather in protests. The powerful, collaborative abuse of authority and position should compel us, as the Apostle Peter urges, to “prepare our minds for action”.

In previous verses, Peter pointed to the prophets who sought with great intent the “times and circumstances” of Christ’s arrival. “Therefore”, Peter exhorts, “prepare your minds for action”, calling us to holiness, self-control, and a lifestyle detached from this world, “…live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear…”

The COVID virus, scandal, widespread betrayal of authorities and media control presents a most formidable temptation for Christians to seek justice and some kind of political empowerment. But ultimately it is a temptation that would derail us from God’s high call. For the believer, all this should propel us further from worldly dynamics and deeper into God’s word. Above all, we need spiritual discernment. As the prophets before us, we must “search intently and with greatest care” to be the lamposts and beacons for Christ in our generation.

The great deception and calamity which took root and spread will be laughable compared to the rise of supernatural deception. It will not be Republican/Democrat, Conservative/Liberal. All are worldly alliances will prove to be a fatal choice for believers to trust.

We might not be here when the antichrist arises but we might. In any case, we want our hearts aligned with God’s. Now is the time to gird up our loins, “prepare our minds for action”, and grow in intimacy with our Lord. The “road is narrow” and the “gate is small” -it is single file. We won’t make it unless our eyes fixed upon Jesus alone – He’s finished His journey but still goes before us.

May we all prepare our minds to discern the times, to know the call of our Father in heaven and fulfill those works “prepared for us in advance” by Him. Only through Him can we bear fruit with eternal value.

  1. “Conveniently, dissenters were bullied, threatened, and ostracized.”

    I’m always amazed at how easy people sort of nod and obey whatever social media tells them. “Don’t talk about this, or you’re a conspiracy theorist!” And everybody gasps and shuts their mouths obediently. And they try to shut other people’s mouths, too.

    It’s surprising to me, having grown up in a very defiant, independent thinking generation (or so I thought).

    But it’s always refreshing to find a blog post like this one. Yeah, it might not have been a wet market that started this one, and is that such a naughty thing to say? ๐Ÿค” Is that such a shocking thing to consider?

  2. Tremendous post, Lisa Beth. Unfortunately, too many believers are tying themselves up in the complexities of human conspiracy. As you said, we need to be fully tied up in the Lord Jesus and being about His work.

    There are masses of people who have not heard the Gospel, and we need to be sharing it before it’s too late. Excellent wake-up call to believers!

    • I agree David, so many have lost focus.
      Thank you so much David for your thoughtful comments and encouragement – you are a real blessing to readers and writers!

  3. Thank you, Lisa Beth. Very well articulated and a clear biblical call to keep our eyes on the Lord, stay in the word, and stay out of worldly affairs! Amen.

    John 18:36ย ย Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdomย were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.”

    2 Timothy 2:4ย “No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.”

  4. Boldness is something we will all need as the day approaches. Thank you for sharing your boldness and I pray that we are all ready to stand for our Saviour. May His grace abound in us all and may He put a fire in our hearts to seek Him diligently. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ
    I enjoy your posts!

  5. This is a fantastic post! You are so right about spiritual deception and taking steps back. We need to step forward toward Christ and prepare our minds, hearts and hands to love, obey and serve Him while there is still time. More and more we are seeing how friendship with the world is enmity with God. So thankful for you! Love, hugs and blessings!!!

    • Wow thank you Mandy for such uplifting words! I totally agree with you, we must “step forward toward Christ” – the time is short.
      Hope you and hubby a great weekend. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  6. Well said, Lisa Beth. And the comments from all are so appropriate and encouraging.

    One thought. You wrote, “We might not be here when the antichrist arises but we might.” I’ve not heard or read this thinking often in many years. Once upon a time, we’d say “Pray for Pre, Prepare for Post.” I think there’s merit in being “prayed up and fasted up,” as we indeed don’t really know if we’ll be spared all or some of the Tribulation. Yet, we do have assurance that we will be spared G-D’s Wrath.

    Additionally, we do well to, as Apostle Paul wrote the Ephesians, “. . . be strong in the L-RD and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of G-D, that [we] may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.” Eph 6:10,11.

    L-RD Bless, Keep, Shine. . . May His Shalom Peace rest upon you and flow through you.

  7. After the flood ,Noah didn’t leave the Arc immediately he had sent birds at first to ensure that the situation was perfect for him to come out with his family.Please don’t be deceived by people assuming the pandemic is over .Perhaps a major catastrophe is likely to occur soon .Have patience and pray and continue to follow the precautionary measures of the pandemic and continue to pray for all as you have been doing.I wish and pray that the pandemic would end as early as possible.Take care .๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ™โœ
