Plundering the Pandemic
“making the best use of the time, because the days are evil,” Ephesians 5:16
It has now been weeks of quarantine with partial and then sometimes full lock downs in some places all over the Globe. It is definitely an interesting time we are living in, but one that should not be shocking for those who study The Word of God. (as stated in last months letter, we have a preview of things coming in Matthew 24.)
Even though we really can not truly evaluate the results of this particular crisis at this time, with the numbers of loss of life, health, finance, business and the emotional toll, We carry this HOPE within us that something GREAT is on the horizon. (Romans 5:2) Yes, We believe even in the midst of chaos there is an opportunity to obtain great dividends of an eternal weighty value out of this war. Every day of quarantine is another day to get something out of it, & to grow stronger in perseverance, and yes, the building up the more of a Tenacious Faith for another spiritual awakening with Revival Fire.
However, even for those walking with HIM, if not very careful, we can substitute one activity for another and miss out on this opportunity to lean closer in to HIS HEARTBEAT. HE has instructed us to BE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD. Psalm 46:10. There is something about being still and getting quiet and waiting that most humans find very challenging, because of the production oriented society and loud noisy environments with overboard stimuli in which we are accustomed. But yet when there is quiet, and the cessation of the always on the go go go, we can actually find a much needed rest for our souls and glean from HIM regarding preparation for the days ahead. We find that even in very hectic schedules of important things to do no less, that when we pause and meet with HIM, HE surely gives us refreshment.
So we have been inquiring the more of HIM and passionately desiring to make this quarantine count and plunder this pandemic. A Brother in Christ recently stated that Our Culture of Busy-ness has been confronted even in The CHURCH and getting alone with JESUS in the wilderness is a perfect recipe. In the wilderness, HE speaks tenderly to us. (Hosea 2;14 )
We encourage you to remain hopeful during this season and plunder all you can for The Glory of God while expecting A Mature Bride to emerge that is radiant and ready for our Kings Return. Revelation 22: 17 -20
