The Coronavirus - Is Almighty God Our Enemy?

In light of the coronavirus epidemic plaguing our world and nation; many have been asking, "Does Almighty God even care and where is He?" Dear friends, in the ETERNAL PROVIDENTIAL mind and outworking of Almighty God, He RIGHTEOUSLY LOVES and desires ALL men to repent and to be delivered from their fallen humanity and the RIGHTEOUS WRATH to come (John 3:16-17;36; Acts 17:24-34, Heb. 9:27). So yes, God does ETERNALLY LOVE, care and is working ALL things together to that Divine ETERNAL purpose on our ETERNAL behalf; and for His ETERNAL GLORY (Rev. 4-5)! However, for the blood brought child of Almighty God, when passing through diverse trials and adversities, it might seem to some that He is our enemy and that He doesn't care. Oh, beloved, this delusion could not be further from the truth! Satan the slanderer loves it when we are deceived into thinking and believing this. By FAITH in Almighty God and His Word, we can defeat this strategy of the enemy of our souls. The Bible states: "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?" (1 John 5:4,5).

 Passing through trials and adversities, it might seem to some that  Almighty God is our enemy and that He doesn't care.

The victory is gained when a person puts his or her faith and trust in The RIGHTEOUS ETERNAL Person of Almighty God. As believers in Christ, we can by faith get through the adversity and calamity that comes our way, knowing that God indeed loves us and has a PERFECT plan to make us winners, not losers. Listen to this promise: "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose" (Romans 8:26). God has a wonderful plan for you!

In these last days may we be strong and of good courage and have faith in Almighty God. May we see - with the eyes of faith - past this physical world into the very throne room of Heaven, and be more than a Conqueror in Christ.

'Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place" (2 Cor. 2:14).

Remember, Beloved: "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you [i.e., Christ], than he that is in the world" [i.e., Satan and his minions] (1 John 4:4).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
