“The Powerful, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (Jacob 6:16)
Righteous willed with power of fervent prayer avails much sin. Their vow from their GOD heals human leprosies, incurable diseases and plagues.
Plagues have heavily spread throughout much of human history witnessed even in our days. Akin is to these generations, where the world endures new plagues of the deadly Corona Virus for month’s which killed tons of citizens. The numbers of dead people registered daily and their beloved ones unable to bare their body. America, Europe, Asia and Africa all got tainted by the virus and lost many lives.
What we are witnessing is GOD’s rage falling upon earth by this plague. His patient out of the limit, he destroyed all heresies and those living under satanic belief. Their lack of faith seems to outrun them from life path. Just as LORD Jesus Christ avowed, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs in transient way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the doorkeeper opens and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of stranger.” (John 10:1-6)
But humans couldn’t hear the voice of their Shepherd. They are blinded with hatred, evil and trespass. This lead to them being consumed by the evil spirit where they even started worshiping witches. Worldly life full of sorrow, pain and agony antagonizes masses for mortals fell under Satan’s fiddle. His is scam to drag every soul into hell. Many have fallen under his trap consumed by the devilish spirit blinding and drawing them out of life path. So, their faith for pleading the righteous intercession for every human is deficient.
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).
During the era of plagues and pestilences, Ethiopian Saints as such as Abune Estinfase Kiristos and Histanu Kirkos are given oath to plead for all humans. LORD Jesus promised them saying, all who prayed in your name, “do not get contagious disease or diarrhea, famine, water shortages, clothes loss, dizziness. And a bad demon called Legion will never come near. Penuel and Raphael will guard him forever; when he dies on this earth, the angels of heaven joyfully welcome him to heaven, will not encounter Massacres, livestock diseases, food shortages, famines, pestilences.” (Gedele Abune Estinfase Kiristos and Senkisar Tir 15 )
The Romanian Saint Sebastian dying as a martyr is to be mentioned. Tough they considered him as Catholic after his death, he is a Christian Martyrdom. Sated in the roman Christian’s history, he was one born in the third century near present-day Milan and served as a Roman soldier under the Emperor Diocletian, a renowned persecutor of Christians. The section on Saint Sebastian says that he converted to Christianity after seeing the bravery of Christian martyrs and eventually compelled close companions to convert, including a Roman prefect who was cured of a plague when he renounced his pagan idols. When Diocletian learned of his conversion, Sebastian was sentenced to death at the hands of archers, but he survived the execution, returning to Diocletian’s court to rebuke him in the name of God, as depicted in Veronese’s Saint Sebastian reproving Diocletian.Upon this act, Diocletian ordered the soldiers to club Sebastian to death, and Sebastian died a Christian martyr. Because his intercession to God contributed to the cure of the Roman prefect, Sebastian became widely associated with the cure of plagues, especially in cities throughout the Italian Peninsula.(The Romanian History)
Prophet Moses prayer to save Israeli in their rebelled is also to be mentioned. He pleaded in the name of the people for GOD was growing to destroy them all. The people rebelled and “all the members of the community raised their voices and wept aloud. All the Israelites grumbled against Moses and Aaron, and the whole assembly said to them, “If only we had died in Egypt! Or in this wilderness! Why is the LORD bringing us to this land only to let us fall by the sword? Our wives and children will be taken as plunder. Wouldn’t it be better for us to go back to Egypt?” And they said to each other, “We should choose a leader and go back to Egypt.”
Then Moses and Aaron fell face down in front of the whole Israelite assembly gathered there. Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had explored the land, tore their clothes and said to the entire Israelite assembly, “The land we passed through and explored is exceedingly good. If the LORD is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us. Only do not rebel against the LORD. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will devour them. Their protection is gone, but the LORD is with us. Do not be afraid of them.”
But the whole assembly talked about stoning them. Then the glory of the LORD appeared at the tent of meeting to all the Israelites. The LORD said to Moses, “How long will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the signs I have performed among them? I will strike them down with a plague and destroy them, but I will make you into a nation greater and stronger than they.”
Moses said to the LORD, “Then the Egyptians will hear about it! By your power you brought these people up from among them. And they will tell the inhabitants of this land about it. They have already heard that you, LORD, are with these people and that you, LORD, have been seen face to face, that your cloud stays over them, and that you go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. If you put all these people to death, leaving none alive, the nations who have heard this report about you will say, ‘The LORD was not able to bring these people into the land he promised them on oath, so he slaughtered them in the wilderness.
“Now may the Lord’s strength be displayed, just as you have declared: ‘The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.’ In accordance with your great love, forgive the sin of these people, just as you have pardoned them from the time they left Egypt until now.” The LORD replied, “I have forgiven them, as you asked. (Numbers 14:1-20)
Untoward to the people of this generation, losing their way into repent for their prayer to be heard off and accepted. They are denied mercy and salvation facing death every day. GOD has out spoken where this plague is his witness. His anger exceeded much denying us his mercy.
Anyone with the faith of righteous intercession shall seek their prayer for they are the cure for body and soul. Or else, the chance of surviving is in question; since the virus is still spreading.
