Halfway through July and what a fun summer it has been so far. None of us believe this virus is not real because many have had “the sickness”. However, I am concerned as to how many do not see the real battle. First and foremost, this is a spiritual attack against Jesus Christ and His Kingdom. If Christians ever needed to gather together and pray, it is now. The Bible clearly instructs the Body of Christ to join together and pray for God’s protection. We must never allow the enemy to intimidate us as born-again believers. We must pray against these attacks on the Body of Christ. You know what has happened in California even home gatherings are now outlawed. There are physical attacks against many Catholic churches and as non-Catholics, you might not care but these attacks will increase to every church if we don’t cry out to God for a stop to this evil. Yes, we must take precaution the very best we can but if we allow fear to govern our church, it is a sure sign of lack of faith. You know we must have faith to please God. Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

     We must never forget what I call “the Jesus factor” and that is after we have taken every precaution, we must never forget we are not of this world, we are part of His Kingdom. He promises to never leave us or forsake us and that is the real truth.

     2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, yes well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. 

     One does not have to be a Bible Scholar to understand this verse, but one does have to have faith to believe it and live it.
