Virus is warning from God
What have we done to deserve the corona virus?
Plenty, both here in the United States and around the world. The Bible says when God's people are disobedient to Him, there are four categories of curses that will come upon them: war, famine, plague and wild beast attacks. (See Deuteronomy 28:15-68, Leviticus 26:14-46, and Revelations 6:8.)
In Bible times when the northern 10 tribes of Israel were continually disobedient to God, He took His hand of protection from them and allowed them to be defeated by their enemies.
God intended for them to repent, but instead their attitude was one of coming back bigger and stronger than before. Within years, God allowed them to be totally defeated by their enemies; then the remaining two tribes followed suit about 135 years later. Israel ceased to exist as a nation due to the people's unrepentant sinfulness. (See Deuteronomy 28:64.)
The United States has made the same mistake as the northern 10 tribes of Israel on Sept. 11. 2001, also known as 9/11, like the emergency number, 9-1-1. It was no mistake. It was an emergency call from God to repent.
God intended 9/11 to be a wake-up call of our sinfulness and need of repentance, and to seek Him. Unfortunately, seeking God was short-lived and people returned to their old ways.
The Bible was given to us to know and understand God's ways so we don't repeat the mistakes of the wrong-doers.
Let's repent of our evil ways and ask God to heal us and our land from this virus. (See II Chronicles 7:13-14.)
