Do Not Fear: A Message For Believers On Coronavirus.
Author and broadcaster Jason Carter, wrote the following article.
Disarming the Fear Pandemic: A Vital Message for the Church in This Hour.
What is the root cause of fear? Simply put, it is the fear of dying.
I know a Christian man whose wife was having a panic attack. He quipped; “What’s the worse that could happen? You die, and go home to be with the Lord!” His comment immediately arrested her anxiety as she realised what would follow.
Some Christians fear death. This is evidenced by their panicked reaction to external threats in our world. Some believers are fearful of catching the Coronavirus. Yes, we must be wise to protect ourselves, just as we would the common cold or flu, but we must not let the fear of death be the driving force.
Jesus expressly told us to not be afraid of those who can kill the body but after that can do no more. (Luke 12:4)
You see, there is an ‘after that’. For the believer, their lives gloriously continue the moment they die.
Death is but an exciting gateway into a continuation of the journey with their Heavenly Father in the bright presence of the Son for all eternity. It is where they are rejoined with their believing loved ones, amid the throngs of angels in heavenly chorus.
In light of this biblical reality, what on earth is there to fear?
Unfortunately the word ‘death’ doesn’t really help to convey a positive experience. The term itself evokes finality – a fearful expectation of the unknown or an outer darkness.
However, the Apostle Paul knew differently. He described death as sleep. Paul referred to the believers who ‘sleep in death’, and ‘who have fallen asleep.’
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-15; 1 Corinthians 15:18).
Jesus also described the dead girls condition as that of sleeping. Of the dead and entombed Lazarus, Jesus declared he was sleeping and would wake him up.
To understand that for the believer, sleep is merely occurring, changes everything. Sleep doesn’t evoke feelings of fear, but rather the opposite – PEACE!
The Psalmist wrote; “In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.” (Psalm 4:8)
For Stephen, who met a violent end by stoning, the bible records that he saw Jesus welcome him and then he fell asleep. For the believer, even a painful end can be a peaceful one with Jesus.
For the Christian, death is not to be feared, even in the slightest. The apostle Paul had no fear of death. He said, ‘to be absent from the body was to be at home with the Lord’ (2 Corinthians 5:8). He should know. Paul was no stranger to heaven and was caught up there during his life. That is why he could confidently declare; “Where oh death is your sting?” Indeed. For the Christian, where is it?
Fear is being used right now as a weapon, deployed through the mainstream media, in an unprecedented global control of the masses. But it can only work on those who are afraid to die.
Once we come to understand that death is merely sleeping and awakening in the bright presence of Jesus, then there can be no fear! As we sing in church, ‘death was arrested’.
Knowing this, we walk through the valley of the shadow of death fearlessly (Psalm 23:4). With this understanding we become free. Fear has thus been disarmed.
We are no longer under fears control and the peace of Christ rules in our hearts. (Colossians 3:15)
We are enabled to clearly hear Jesus personally tell us; “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid,” (John 14:27)
More virulent than the Coronavirus is the fear being propagated by it. Fear is enabling an unprecedented move by the globalist powers. As the people cower in fear, Orwellian laws are being rushed through to control the populace.
Journalist Mae Brussell said, ‘Once the people are terrorised, you can force a police state on them.’ This insidious technique is a long established mechanism for governmental control.
Right now it is happening before our very eyes. Stories abound. In Denmark alone the police will be able to enter a house without a permit and forcibly put people into isolation. The stage is being set for a later detention of undesirables. In 2019 Denmark already begun a purging of new testament Christianity. This resulted in the fleeing of believers to other countries. As of April 2019 a law was passed making it illegal to cast out demons.
These draconian laws will remain, just as they did way after the events of 9/11 with the Patriot Act. This law vastly expanded the US Government’s authority to spy on its citizens, even without evidence of illegal activity.
The Coronavirus is one of many tools being used to implement global control of the citizens. It is an unprecedented move. It is of biblical proportions. Note that according to scripture, disease will be unleashed and sorcery (Greek – ‘pharmakeia’) aka the pharmaceutical industry will work in tandem (disease and cure, disease and cure…) These two components will be used as part of the plan to control the planet. Revelation 6:8; 18:23.
Through this crisis the globalists are making a bold move in order to regain lost ground during the populist uprising. What the Holy Spirit warned me of in 2009 is now speedily rolling out across the planet.
Persecution is on the horizon. But it is not a time to allow fear to control. On the contrary it is a time to rise in the courageous spirit of Daniel – to prepare for a future in which we refuse to bow to a system that will require a compromise of our faith.
In the face of tyranny, fear must be disarmed. Fear is the weapon to initiate control. Disarm fear – disarm the enemy. The bible says, “The fear of man brings a snare. But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe.” (Proverbs 29:25)
We must supernaturally TRUST in the Lord, above a fear-mongering mainstream media.
Turning it off would be a good first step. The next step would be to expose fear and thereby disarm the enemy at the gates. I will write about this in Part 2.
Jesus said; “Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27)
Now would be a good time to receive a revelation of Jesus and His peace in this hour.
God bless you all.

Jason and I discussed this today. I mentioned that we can share the Gospel with as many as possible. Amongst the fear and illness, we can lead many people to Jesus, pray for the sick to be healed and show the love of Jesus by bringing food to our neighbours and so on. We all will die one day, whether of this virus or something else. It’s crucial people know the Lord and will enter heaven after death. The Lord wants none to perish in hell. Jason agreed with me.
So, don’t panic, instead let’s take the opportunity to keep sharing the truths about Christ and His salvation, while we can!
God bless you all,
You may remember my reviews for my good friend and cohost on Eternal Radio, Jason Carter’s book Trumpet Blast Warning. It’s not about Trump. He wrote it before he became president of USA. You can find a free chapter DOWNLOAD from his book on my blog!
