COVID-19 Common Sense
Posted under: Judgment?
As I sifted through different social media sites, I noticed many of what we will call “religious” people, stated that this “COVID-19” outbreak is the judgement of God.
We see verses like 2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Some imply this is God who put this on us to teach us something.
While this is a great verse and great advice, this is NOT God’s judgment!
God told Abraham He would not destroy the righteous with the wicked. Righteous being defined as those who are reconciled with God through faith. Wicked being defined as those who are not.
Other definitions could be saved and unsaved; in Christ and in Adam, believer and non-believer, saint or sinner, you get the picture.
Just understand it rains on the just and the unjust. We live in a fallen world and chaos, death, destruction, and such is the norm since the devil is the god of this world system.
This point of today’s blog is God is Love, While we were yet sinners, while we were ungodly, while we were enemies, God sent Jesus to die for the sin of the whole world. Sin is no longer an issue. It has ALL been paid for. (1 John 2:2)
And whosoever will believe by faith in Jesus Christ will not suffer the judgment of God but reap the benefits of His salvation.
John 3:18 NASB "He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, BECAUSE he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [Emphasis Mine]
Romans 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
So just to clarify. God is not angry. He isn’t even mad.He is however, LOVE; and has freely given us His Grace. Quit blaming God for the chaos of this world.
