Isa. 14:16-17a They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; That opened not the house of his prisoners?
This verse, Isa. 14:16, came to my mind this morning while I was meditating. I believe it is a prophetic picture of what will happen regarding Covid-19. It has been proven to be one of the most treatable, and most responsive to medication viruses that we ever had. People are feeling better after 1-3 hours of being treated.
So why the hysteria and panic? There is an agenda of control through fear and intimidation. We are being pressured into believing that only a vaccine can help us. We must get vaccinated every year and we just have to put up with this virus because no vaccine was created for it yet.
I see that the devil has overplayed his hand and will lose a great amount of control through this whole situation. We will look back at this virus with wonder and amazement while thinking, “How is it possible that this virus that was so treatable, created so much panic? Nations were shook and cities were destroyed because of this? We can never let this happen again!”
There is a battle for the hearts and minds of men like never before. As believers in Jesus Christ, we can stand and proclaim the promises of God. He has not given us the spirit of fear, but of love, power, and a sound mind (2Tim. 1:7). This verse is more important than ever because it is in direct opposition to what the devil will be doing in the last days. Jesus said in Luke 21:26, that men’s hearts will fail because of fear.
Earlier in verse 8, Jesus started out in describing the last days be saying, “Take heed that ye be not deceived.” Fear and deception often go hand in hand. The thing that we want to fear is magnified and consumes our mind and our attention. This is because whatever we focus on becomes much larger in our eyes.
Because of the intensity of the last days, it is of utmost importance to intentionally focus on the Lord and the promises that are found in his Word. We are called to exalt the Lord and the power of his Word. His word is alive and powerful. At the name of Jesus everyone & everything will bow.
