COVID 19 is NOT a Sign of God Punishing Man – The coronavirus is gradually exposing the doctrine which has been forced down the throat of the Christian in recent times. Suddenly preachers are propounding the mass destruction theory that God is punishing humanity for their sins. How?
Biblical Facts and Truths
Before COVID 19, preachers were confident that believers were heaven bound but suddenly God is punishing humanity with believers included? There must be something wrong. It is either God is suddenly putting aside His Word and nature or we were preaching our own gospel.
The first thing we all need is to accept is that coronavirus is a plague/pestilence which means that; it is not a new thing to God(See Exodus 8 and 9) and believers and COVID 19 is NOT a Sign of God Punishing Man, even if it is a punishment from GOD it is not meant destroy everyone (there was Goshen in Egypt).
Even when God wanted to punish His chosen people He still stated that those who obeyed will be kept alive – Numbers 21. These biblical features give the indication that God is not punishing humanity.
It is true that some humans are Satanist, LGBTQ, prostitutes, atheist, murderers etc and so they need to be punished but does that give God the opportunity those of us who are saved – Genesis 18:33. Unless the concept of born again in bible is not true and that God old us a lie, we cannot be punished by God.
The Bible says Christians are righteous because of Jesus – 1 Corinthians 1:30; He is preparing a place for us and when he is done he will come for us – John 14:1-4 etc. What happened to these promises given by God? Were they lies? If God is punishing us then the Bible is a lie but since the Bible is not then we can conclude that some persons have read a wrong meaning into it or skew its content towards our emotions and needs instead of God’s instruction and intention.
Be rest assured, don’t fret, don’t fall for the lie – COVID 19 is NOT a Sign of God Punishing Man
- As long as you are a Christian and saved with your name in the book of life, God cannot wake up one morning and condemn you with corona virus. Because we have become sons of God – Romans 8:1; God say He will separate the wheat from the tares before condemning the tares (Matt 13:30)
- If God recognises that you are His – Romans 8:29, why will he punish you because others like the LGBTQ, prostitute or atheist? Are Christians now paying for the sins of unbelievers.
- If COVID 19 is punishment, then why did the Bible talk about rapture – 1 Thessalonians 4:17 of those of us who are alive in Christ?
Coronavirus(COVID 19) is killing both Christians and unbelievers so it cannot be God’s way of punishing His people but it is here to remind us about the fact that the world we are busily building and dying for, is nothing but chaff which can be blown away by a single wind like coronavirus.
- If you are Christian it is time to fight a good fight, begin to run your race and most importantly keep (protect) your faith.
- If you were pretending to be a Christian, then it is time to put aside the pretense and give yourself wholly to God.
- For those of us who refused to accept Jesus I guess corona is a proof that you need God and not the world.
God is good, all the time and through the darkest times, His light will Shine; God is good all the time!
Remember; COVID 19 is NOT a Sign of God Punishing Man
