Jesus is our rock. We build our house upon Him. When the rain and storms come, we will not be moved; Matt 7:24-25. Those who build their religion and faith on sinking sand – will be revealed in troubling times such as this.
What is our hope? That we live forever with the Lord. That we not fear in this life what may or may not come. That we do not fear even death. Jesus Christ is our hope.
We have accounts throughout the pages of the Bible revealing God’s desire for us when we face devastation, difficulty and suffering. He wants us to be a people who would humble ourselves, repent of sin and seek Him as our God. As we do we can dwell in the secret place of the Most High; Psalm 91.
If you do not know the Lord, or have not taken Him serious as He deserves in your Christian walk – He is calling you in this time of trouble.
Moses led the children of Israel in the wilderness and because they had hearts against God they were smitten by poisonous serpents in judgement. Yet God provided them the way of Salvation from this certain death:
Then the LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.” So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived. Numbers 21:8-9
Today, we can look to Jesus who IS the one who hung on a cross for us – so we would not die in our sins. The world is on the brink of pandemonium – by a virus. If people would only fear the plague of SIN with the fear and respect they give the covid-19 virus, how many would not only be saved but know Peace that passes all understanding in this time of crisis, who is Jesus; Is 9:6.
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:14-17
