At his reign, the wise king Solomon once thought Israeli people on word of GOD saying “But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure without fear of evil.” Hearing GOD’s, dwelling safely and being secure without fear are the main themes we can find in this quote. (Proverbs 1:33)
Whilst the creation of human is to serve the LORD being as righteous as angels, mortals are in the devils nest, worshiping him till they give in their entire soul. Their weakness of survival through hardships and challenges they encounter in everyday life led to their failure.
In this dark and cold world, where the destiny of human lays in a deep desire of life, a spark of light seems to be mans last hope for salvation. Turning back to the spiritual journey, it is clear how following the rule lead us all the way through. Just as Prophet David said, “Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my paths” (Psalm 118:105)
Whilst plagues have spread all over the world, people within this universe necessitate the prayer of all Righteous as affirmed in the bible, “The Powerful, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” (Jacob 6:16).
God is righteous ruling his kingdom in every human’s will. Giving all mortals freedom to life and salvation, he saith, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” (John 14:15)
What is ensuing these days seems not to be seized and if the punishment is yet to arise, many will die and so behold his rage. Mortality is amongst the nature of all man kinds, but may we be reminded about Hell, where no human soul can survive the fall into the deep fire, anguish and the agony, the pain and suffering of which after the LORD’s judgment is once commenced, no creature can have the likelihood of repentance and merit of his mercy. No one will be purified or get salvation.
Plagues are what the world is enduring of which GOD’s anger is witnessed. His rage over his lenience, earth got filled with fear and anxiety where mortals cared to acknowledge the existences of him. Even those relying on their wealth or scientific knowledge fearing of what is yet to come, if no medicine for the new deadly virus Corona is found, have begun crave him.
Even though Adam’s body was decomposing and rotting in the grave with its power revoked for a while, he was able to gain power and conquer death because it inseparably became one with the nature of the Deity afterwards. Christ suffered in the flesh and went to the grave, He beat death with His Deity and Divine authority and made the flesh with which He inseparably united victorious. By wearing man’s flesh which was humiliated, scorned, and crushed, He took man back to his place of dignity and honored him.
Washing hands, prohibiting contingence and keeping distances from throng sophistication as such are labeled out. Though this might help reduce public pressure and the degree of expansion of the virus, yet it is likely to kill more lives; and thus, all who are the in the eyes of the LORD, shall look up to the sky and pray for mercy as this is a plagues out of GOD’s rage. Being the result of our sin, people’s soul surviving reckoning on the will of repentance; or else, as it is written, “Only you have I known from all the clans of the earth; therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.” (Amos 3:2) Washing our hands might seem to help feel like we are clean, but the real meaning and value of it is to cleanse from sin. Just like stated in the Holy Bible, “Cleanse your hands, you sinners and purify your hearts, you double-minded” (James 4:8)
The world’s powerful leaders of this generation have come to believe of GOD’s presence and raise their eye up to the heaven. Countries like Russia, America and Ethiopia sprayed Holy Water and burned incense in their capital cities as well as vital places. Church Ministers, Priest and Deacons have been engaged in this liturgy, hoping GOD will turn his anger into his mercy. Just as it’s written in the bible, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen,” (Heb.11:1) faith is our hope.
