Is God Behind The Coronavirus?


Is God behind the Coronavirus?


Did you know that if anyone personally knew God and experienced His extravagant unconditional love, there would be no way to misjudge His character? There has been going on some misunderstanding right now in the body of Christ concerning the COVID-19 pandemic.


It seems that the sons and daughters of God believe that this pandemic is from God and that He is judging the world with this Coronavirus. It is absolutely not true. God is not the One who is sending the Coronavirus to kill people. It's the work of the devil.


I think it is nonsense to believe that God is behind this pandemic and He is killing them all to teach the world a lesson. As if God is punishing the world for not following His code of conduct. Yet, He is not even trying to get the attention of the world through this evil as some might think that way.


Could we say that God is the mastermind behind this pandemic? No, certainly not. It is the work of the enemy. Jesus has made it clear in His statement in John 10:10 that He came to give the life to the world and life more abundantly.


He has also made it clear in John 3:16 that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son Jesus as a ransom. Then how could God kill people He loved through Coronavirus. It's unimaginable. 


Now the question is who is behind this pandemic? It's the thief. Yes, you heard me right, thief. Coronavirus is a thief. 


Thief can come in any form. How can we know the thief? The thief can be known by its functions. It has only one agenda and that agenda is destruction. 


Jesus has mentioned that thief's agenda in John 10:10, "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."


The Thief


Is God behind the Coronavirus?


There is no neutral ground. The demarcation is clear between the works of the thief and the Lord Jesus. The thief is the one who is killing people through Coronavirus not Jesus. 


The thief is the enemy of our souls. Anything or anyone whose primary goal is to steal, kill and destroy us is the thief. You can recognize the thief by its functions.


Now the question is how we must respond to this thief who is behind the COVID-19? What should be our response to this thief? 


But if you still believe that it is the Lord's doing then you will stay quiet and let the enemy have its upper hand over us or are we going to do something about it as the sons and daughters of God.


One may still argue that God is trying to teach the world a lesson through this pandemic. Wake up. People are dying. They are not learning a lesson. Likewise others may argue that this is the punishment of God upon the sinners of the world. But nobody can be judged twice for the same crime. God already judged the sins of the whole world upon Jesus His Son on the cruel death of the cross two thousand years ago. 


Jesus was hanged until death on the cross as the punishment of death penalty of the sins of all mankind. Nobody is left out. Everybody's punishment has already been dealt by the loving Savior Jesus including yours and mine.


The Lord That Heals You


Is God behind the Coronavirus?


COVID-19 is neither God’s anger nor punishment in action. It's not His teaching materials to humanity. One of the Covenant names of God is Jehovah - Rapha meaning the LORD our Healer. If He is the healing God then how could He bring the pandemic to make people suffer and die like this?


In fact, the LORD has removed our transgression with all of its consequences of sicknesses, diseases and deaths as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12).


And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. - 1 John 4:16

The devil is the culprit. He is the murderer and liar. He is the father of all lies. He is the source of all evil. And he has deceived the whole world by making them believe that it is God who is doing such an evil thing to destroy them. Jesus has made it clear that the devil is the mastermind behind destruction.


You may argue that God destroyed the old world with the flood. And He destroyed the city of Sodom and Gomorrah with fire and brimstone. Yes it was God who did that because the whole humanity was completely evil beside Noah’s family. It was a completely different situation than today and also in a different Covenant. 


God is the God of Covenant and He does things covenantal. The covenant is a legal document of contract between God and people.


Others may still argue that it is God who is allowing the devil to release this Coronavirus. If God is allowing such an evil thing you and me then He is as guilty as the devil himself. If God gave permission and allowed the devil to kill His children through Coronavirus then He is not God at all because God is love.


The Loving Father


Is God behind the Coronavirus?


Since He is the loving Father He cannot allow any evil things in your life as much as the parents do not want their children to get sick and die.


Would you allow such things to your loved ones? No, never. You love to take care of your family and it is the same with our loving heavenly Father.


Some people have misunderstood the conversation that happened in heaven between Satan and God concerning a righteous man called Job. The misinterpretation of that conversation has made people believe that God allowed Satan to bring sufferings to Job and this man lost everything in a single day. He lost his health, wife, seven sons, three daughters, prestige in the society and wealth. He suffered boils all over his body. All it happened in one go.


Did God allow such tragedy upon a holy man? No, certainly not. I also used to believe like many others that God did allow Satan to do all those evil in Job’s life and in the same manner He allows Satan to do evil in our life for our own good at the end. But I don’t believe that anymore and I will explain to you my future article.


God is not angry and He is not punishing the world with COVID-19. The enemy has declared war against the whole humanity through this Coronavirus. He wants to destroy the whole world but as the SONS and DAUGHTERS of God we all must rise to our glory and stand strong in the name of our LORD Jesus the Christ and destroy the works of the devil, COVID-19.


So please enjoy the reading and get a living hope from the God of all hope, Jesus the Christ. Shalom.
