The buildings are empty, but the Church is alive- Happy Easter 2020!

The Coronavirus (Covid 19) 2020 pandemic has shuttered the church buildings, but the body of believers is alive and well.
The church doesn’t consist of  statues or buildings. The true Church of Christ is the body of believers; believers that Jesus is the Christ, the only Son of God, who was crucified, died, and rose in victory over death, hell and the grave on the 3rd day.  Believers who have made Jesus the Lord of their lives, who have accepted Him as the payment, the peace offering once and for all time, between God and man’s sin.
The war is over.
The victory His.
And because of His victory, the believers who put their faith in His Blood have also obtained victory.
Victory over sin. Victory over spiritual death. Victory over hell, and all that comes out of it.
Including Covid 19 (and all other viruses and sickness/disease).
We cast our cares on Him for He cares for us. (1 Peter 5:7)
We declare that “No weapon that is formed against us will prosper” (Isaiah  54:17) and that “the Lord is our refuge and our fortress “,”1000 will fall at our sides, 10,000 at our right hands, but it shall not come near us” , that we will “not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness”, (Psalm 91)
You see, God’s Word is His promise to us, made manifest by what Jesus did on that cross thousands of years ago. We, as believers, have a RIGHT to healing, deliverance, prosperity, salvation. We have a RIGHT, by faith, to take hold of these things in our lives.
Find it in the Word, stand on the Promise and keep your faith out there until you see it manifest in your life.
Today, we celebrate the victory Jesus died to give us.
The buildings may be shuttered, but a believer’s faith is not.
WE, the believers, are the Church, the “Rock” upon which it stands, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against His Church. (Matthew 16:17)
Happy Easter 2020!

The world may promise but only Jesus delivers

1-19-2017

I sat at my kitchen table this morning, eating breakfast as usual, checking the weather on my phone. The app said 10% chance of snow.
The weather at my house apparently didn’t get the memo, as I sat watching fat flakes tumble to the ground.
How many times does the world get it wrong?
Many.

Did I mention that I really like snow and that warm weather had melted all that had previously fallen? That our area’s 7 day forecast is more warm weather to come? Or that it was technically too warm to snow this morning? Did I also mention that I am usually not up at that hour, that circumstances arose to get me out of bed earlier than normal?

The Holy Spirit whispered to me: “All things are possible to those that believe”.
