26th MARCH 2020“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18
You will recall that in my New year message in January 2020, I stated that we were about to reset a new decade and all things shall become new again! (Ref: Revelation 21:5) This is God’s promise for the world and our God is a faithful God. You can go back to that message on the official website of the Living waters mission. Beloved, whether you believe it or not, we are currently at the onset of the New Beginning promised by God. This calls for gratitude, notwithstanding the fears and the confusion of the moment. We have to give thanks to God not minding the pains, and losses we are currently going through. The conspiracy theory on COVID – 19 notwithstanding, the New order is finally approaching where the old system will gradually give way to a new regime. But the world will first, PAUSE, THEN RESUME ACTIVITIES, BUT NOTHING WILL BE THE SAME AGAIN! Everything will change and become new!
If the old must give way for the new, then something has to make it happen. COVID – 19 therefore, is a divine tool to break down the old, to make a way for the new. The handwriting is very clear; A new order characterized by new virtues is gradually unfolding. In the new order, the world will learn to embrace the virtues of, PEACE, OBEDIENCE, EQUALITY, UNITY, GRATITUDE, LOVE, AND FORGIVENESS.
Now, we all know that the world is interconnected; what touches one, touches all! Therefore, the world is a unified whole! All men are equal, irrespective of religion, social status or cultural background. While the rage for a third world war was raging, with a hot exchange of words between America and Iran, peace was forced down on the world by COVID – 19. Both America and Iran are shut down already by COVID – 19. In fact, the whole earth is under quarantine and locked up already! Now, we understand the importance of the life of abundance that God has given to us. Now we appreciate good health, comfort, and wellbeing. Now we understand the true meaning of love and forgiveness. You necessarily would have to forgive and love your neighbors so you can be in good health! Your mentality, your attitude, your spirituality, and your immune system must be raised to catch up with the new order.
This pandemic is not expected to last for too long if we will agree to obey very simple instructions; To pause and stay indoor for a while! The pandemic is meant to pause the world activities, break down the old systems, so that a new beginning may commence. The New Regime has some huge benefits for anyone who is able to adapt to the new order or change. The impact of COVID – 19 has become more traumatic because of our already weak immune system. You, therefore, must spend the next few weeks to boost your immune system. The wind blowing outside is not too conducive, I must say. I, therefore, advise that you remain indoor if you are NOT ON A COMPULSORY ASSIGNMENT. God is making all things new again. Therefore, give thanks to God.
Father in the name of Jesus Christ, I thank you for COVID -19. I thank you also for your faithfulness. Heal the world and grant that your plan and purpose for humanity will prevail. I surrender to you in this trying moment. AMEN
