One after one of the Churches I know are now going online. I foresaw this process even though Churches are now responding to the minimizing exposure.
Without contributing to the media hype, there is an issue to face. The Church must now take the upper hand in seeing a divine determination in this issue.
Ever since this has started the Scripture in Joel 2 must be read and understood because it holds keys to our situation. There were 4 types of locust that attacks the nation.
That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpiller eaten.
Joel 1:4 KJV
Remember my message concerning the 4 horsemen and their horses of Revelation 6? These are 4 locusts! One struck at the roots, the other struck at the tops, the others in between. Right now the locust in this CoVID19 situation are impacting 4 areas, society foundations, financial, health, deaths.
The response of Joel 2 and Joel’s prophecy is striking :
Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand; Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
Joel 2:1, 15-16 KJV
The food staple off the land was destroyed. Impending starvation. So Joel presents the solution. Repentance down from leadership to the whole nation. The command was GATHER THE WHOLE NATION. Forget the divisions, denominations, we are before a crisis of apocalyptic proportions. Not just the virus but the hysteria and paranoia that will lead to a break down of law and order.
The Church MUST take the lead, cancel its meetings and get into serious prayer.
What is the result of this if we heed it?
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come.
Joel 2:28-31 KJV
Worldwide revival is the result. So it is the opportunity before us.
