COVID-19 : HANDWRITING OF GOD

1. HANDWRITING is a format of inaudible communication. When, for example, you append your SIGNATURE to a cheque or document you confirm your PERSONALITY to whom it may concern. God also WRITES, and His preferred PAPER your HEART. When God spoke to Pharaoh from the mouth of Moses, His FINGER was busy WRITING, “Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, THIS IS THE FINGER OF GOD: and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said” [Exodus 8:19] The HANDWRITING OF GOD, was on the wall in Babylon, “And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN” [Daniel 5:25] This time, the FINGER OF GOD WROTE COVID-19 on all HEARTS; let him that has eyes SEE and UNDERSTAND what the SPIRIT is saying to the Church.

2. HANDWRITING OF GOD is a WITNESS of His WILL. We’ve always had wars, earthquakes and PANDEMICS, but COVID-19 is different; It is already in the HEARTS of 7 billion souls, though much less than 7 million are presently infected. HIV, SARS, EBOLA, killed millions but did not have the universal SIGNATURE of palpable FEAR in the HEART of the rich and the poor, as COVID-19 does. COVID-19 is God SPEAKING loud and clear and we see “MEN’S HEARTS FAILING THEM FOR FEAR, … “ [Luke 21:26] COVID-19 is God’s WITNESS against this evil generation, as the ARK in the days of Noah, “And AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF NOE, SO SHALL IT BE IN THE DAYS OF THE SON OF MAN” [Luke 17:26] The people SAW the Ark, but came up with many theories to explain Noah’s stupidity. Though there are many conspiracy theories to explain COVID-19, as there are “EXPERTS”, they are united in denying the FINGER OF GOD. Whatever the “EXPERTS” say, COVID-19 is a valid WITNESS in every HEART. The PANDEMIC is real, the body count is rising daily and many more shall DIE; not because they are the worst sinners, but God calling for REPENTANCE, “… Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but, EXCEPT YE REPENT, YE SHALL ALL LIKEWISE PERISH” [Luke 13:2-3]

3. HANDWRITING OF GOD is LIFE to those who have EYES to DISCERN His WISDOM. When God WROTE on the wall in Babylon, “Then the king’s countenance was changed, and HIS THOUGHTS TROUBLED HIM, so that the JOINTS OF HIS LOINS WERE LOOSED, and his knees smote one against another” [Daniel 5:6] The FINGER OF GOD WROTE MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN in Babylon, and now impresses COVID-19 on every HEART. The LETTER WRITTEN on the wall had two recipients. ONE, it was a DECREE from God to King Belshazzar and his people, which knew not God, to declare the beginning of their sorrows, as it is written: “Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians” [Daniel 5:28] In the same way, COVID -19 is the BEGINNING OF SORROWS for this wicked world and expectedly, the rulers of the earth are gripped with FEAR and the people PERPLEXED [Matthew 24:1-end] TWO, the HANDWRITING on the wall signaled the REDEMPTION and RESTORATION of Israel through Cyrus, and “Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, … Who is there among you of all his people? his God be with him, and LET HIM GO UP TO JERUSALEM, which is in Judah, and build the house of the LORD God of Israel” [Ezra 1:2-3] COVID-19 is the HANDWRITING OF GOD proclaiming imminent TRANSLATION of His SAINTS, when “… we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” [1 Thessalonians 4:17]

4. HANDWRITING OF GOD is God breaking all barriers to impress His message in your HEART. God indeed defied all obstacles, including race, gender, status and religion to reach your HEART in a manner no pastor can do. God has SPOKEN, “The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the LORD GOD HATH SPOKEN, WHO CAN BUT PROPHESY?” [Amos 3:8] COVID-19 is God SPEAKING to your HEART, saying: “And, BEHOLD, I COME QUICKLY; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be” [Revelation 22:12] I assure you, this PANDEMIC will not last forever, but the world shall never be the same. When it is over, the nations shall come together to foist a NEW WORLD ORDER on the earth. For a short while, global economic stimulus packages will ensure a measure of PEACE and PROSPERITY, but “… WHEN THEY SHALL SAY, PEACE and SAFETY; then SUDDEN DESTRUCTION COMETH upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” [1Thessalonians 5:3] While they yet celebrate the NEW WORLD ORDER, SUDDEN DESTRUCTION looms in unprecedented earthquakes, famine, pestilence and unparalleled disasters [Luke 21:25-27] Brethren, this PANDEMIC and the season of FALSE PEACE and PROSPERITY are the very SHORT WINDOW before the Lord appears to receive His BRIDE, “For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because A SHORT WORK WILL THE LORD MAKE UPON THE EARTH” [Romans 9:28]

5. HANDWRITING OF GOD is the FINGER OF GOD and COVID-19 is His HANDWRITTEN LETTER, inviting you to REPENT. I plead with you to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour today and escape eternal damnation, “Behold therefore the GOODNESS AND SEVERITY OF GOD: ON THEM WHICH FELL SEVERITY; BUT TOWARD THEE, GOODNESS, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off” [Romans1:22] Amen

COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE

1. COME OUT OF HER is the VOICE of the Lord calling out His GENTILE BRIDE to prepare for EXODUS BY AIR. The CALL went out as soon as Israel returned from exile in 1948, bringing to an end, the MYSTERY of “BLINDNESS IN PART”. “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of THIS MYSTERY, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that BLINDNESS IN PART IS HAPPENED TO ISRAEL, until the FULNESS OF THE GENTILES be come in” [Romans 11:25] Beloved, present upheavals, wars and pandemics are merely the “BEGINNING OF SORROWS” culminating in TRANSLATION, and after shall Israel sing “… Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord” [Matthew 23:39] After the BRIDE is gone, the world shall descend into PLAGUES and GREAT TRIBULATION, leading to ARMAGEDDON. Let him that has ears listen to what the SPIRIT is saying to the Church: “… COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and THAT YE RECEIVE NOT OF HER PLAGUES” [Revelation 18:4]

2. COME OUT OF HER is a commandment to God’s PEOPLE to SEPARATE from “HER”, “WITH WHOM THE KINGS OF THE EARTH HAVE COMMITTED FORNICATION, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication” [Revelation 17:2] “HER” pertains to a WOMAN, not an ordinary WOMAN, but a SPIRITUAL ENTITY speaking in the name of God, but FORNICATES with the KINGS of the earth. The KINGS of the earth are Satan and his emissaries, the WOMAN is FALSE RELIGION “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” [Revelation 17:5] One of the HARLOTS is APOSTATE Church, having a FORM of godliness and highly esteemed among men, but full of ABOMINATIONS in the sight of God [Luke 16;15] APOSTATE Church is the popular face of modern Christianity, boasting millions of souls “Having EYES FULL OF ADULTERY, and that CANNOT CEASE FROM SIN; BEGUILING UNSTABLE SOULS: an heart they have exercised with COVETOUS PRACTICES; cursed children” [2 Peter 2:14] The HARLOT is the monstrous network of BRANDED Christian organizations, promising LIBERTY in the name of Jesus Christ, and “While they promise them liberty, THEY THEMSELVES ARE THE SERVANTS OF CORRUPTION: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage” [2 Peter 2:19]

3. COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE is the LAST TRUMPET before the wrath of God falls on the earth. It is also the FINAL CALL to the MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB, when we “… which are alive and remain SHALL BE CAUGHT UP together with them in the clouds, TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” [1Thessalonians 4:17] If you think present DISTRESS and loss of lives through poverty, wars and pandemics is fearful, consider what happens after the SAINTS are CAUGHT UP from the earth; the BOTTOMLESS PIT is opened and the most dreadful demons released on earth, “… And IN THOSE DAYS SHALL MEN SEEK DEATH, AND SHALL NOT FIND IT; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them” [Revelation 9:2-6] The ANTICHRIST shall unleash a GLOBAL REGIME of repression and control, forcing all men, “… to RECEIVE A MARK in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that NO MAN MIGHT BUY OR SELL, SAVE HE THAT HAD THE MARK, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” [Revelation 1316-7] Friend, if you are left behind, DO NOT TAKE THE MARK. It is better to die resisting the MARK, and in death be reconciled with God, than to suffer the PLAGUES that follow the MARK, beginning with, “… a NOISOME AND GRIEVOUS SORE UPON THE MEN WHICH HAD THE MARK of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image”[Revelation 16:2]

4. “COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE” is the FINAL WORD of the GOOD SHEPHERD calling His SHEEP to prepare for EXODUS by TRANSLATION. His SHEEP are the GOOD SEED which a farmer SOWED, but woke up to see TARES among the WHEAT, “The field is the world; the GOOD SEED ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE KINGDOM; but the TARES ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE WICKED ONE; The ENEMY THAT SOWED THEM IS THE DEVIL; the HARVEST IS THE END OF THE WORLD; and the REAPERS ARE THE ANGELS” [Matthew 13:39-39] The GOOD SEED is the LIFE of God which Jesus Christ SOWED in us, when He died on the Cross. His SHEEP are the CHILDREN OF THE KINGDOM, “Being BORN AGAIN, NOT OF CORRUPTIBLE SEED, BUT OF INCORRUPTIBLE, BY THE WORD OF GOD, which liveth and abideth for ever” [1 Peter 1:23] We are His SHEEP because the LIFE of God dwells in us, not by reason of Church attendance. His VOICE is searching out His SHEEP wherever they are stuck and “… he shall separate them one from another, AS A SHEPHERD DIVIDETH HIS SHEEP FROM THE GOATS” [Matthew 25:32] Beloved, do you hear His VOICE calling and telling you all is not well with your FAITH? The VOICE of the Lord is the ONE tugging at your heart to COME OUT of the LIES and DELUSIONS of BRANDED Christianity. Thus, says the Lord: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” [John h 10:27]

5. COME OUT OF HER, says the Lord. If you have not heard His VOICE, accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and SHEPHERD and you will He shall lead you by His VOICE to eternal glory, Amen

FELLOWSHIP OF HIS SUFFERING

1.SUFFERING is not a sermon many Christians want to hear, but “… HEREUNTO WERE YE CALLED: because CHRIST ALSO SUFFERED for us, leaving us an example, that YE SHOULD FOLLOW HIS FOOTSTEPS” [1 Peter 2:21] The phobia of SUFFERING, as Jesus did, is sheer IGNORANCE aggravated by doctrines of devils. Brethren, we are REDEEMED to be “… PARTAKERS OF CHRIST’S SUFFERINGS; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy” [1 Peter 4:13] God FOREKNEW and PREDESTINATED us “… to be CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren” [Romans 8:29] Those who look forward to be CONFORMED to Christ in GLORY, are required to experience the FELLOWSHIP OF HIS SUFFERING in this BODY, as it is written: “That I MAY KNOW HIM, and the POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION, and the FELLOWSHIP OF HIS SUFFERINGS, being made CONFORMABLE TO HIS DEATH” [Philippians 3:10]

2. SUFFERING of Christ was primarily IDENTITY CRISIS, “Who, being in being in the FORM OF GOD, thought it not robbery to be EQUAL WITH GOD: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the FORM OF A SERVANT, and WAS MADE IN THE LIKENESS OF MEN” [Philippians 2:6-7] The root of Christ’s SUFFERING was the FORFEITURE of His RIGHTS to DIVINE EXCELLENCY, when He was BORN in the FORM of man. His SUFFERING was the PAIN of the DENIAL of His heavenly PERSONALITY in OBEDIENCE to the WILL of God, and “Though he were a Son, yet LEARNED HE OBEDIENCE BY THE THINGS WHICH HE SUFFERED” [Hebrews 5:8] When we turn to God through Jesus Christ, we are BORN AGAIN into the CRISIS of SELF versus the WILL of God. We SUFFER with Christ when we DENY what we are or wish to be, to live in OBEDIENCE to the WILL of God. Brethren, we are BOUGHT with the BLOOD of Jesus Christ, and FORFEITED ALL RIGHTS to personal AMBITIONS and DESIRES of SELF at the Cross. We are as STRANGERS in this world, without RIGHTS to our WILL, that we might REIGN with Christ. Beloved, though you SUFFER daily from CONTRADICTIONS of what you could have been versus what you are in Jesus Christ, and called names by friends and foes, “… REJOICE, INASMUCH AS YE ARE PARTAKERS OF CHRIST’S SUFFERINGS; that, when his glory shall be revealed, YE MAY BE GLAD WITH EXCEEDING JOY” [1 Peter 4:13]

3. FELLOWSHIP OF HIS SUFFERING is you and I offering our BODIES to God, as Jesus did, and “… we are sanctified through the OFFERING OF THE BODY OF JESUS CHRIST once for all” [Hebrews 10:10] Jesus Christ indeed offered His BODY to SUFFER and be hung ALIVE on the Cross “ONCE FOR ALL” to REDEEM us from SIN. Those who are CALLED to CONFORM to Christ must in similar fashion present their “… BODIES A LIVING SACRIFICE, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service” [Romans 12:1] A LIVING SACRIFICE is burnt ALIVE, and so are we in the world. We are BOUND by the WORD of God to live according to His WILL in a world aflame with SIN. Our FLESH is “BURNT” with FIERY TRIALS and our FAITH is sore TESTED. Oftentimes we are TEMPTED to turn back and be free to do our OWN THING, but we refuse to give in to the ADVERSARY. Jesus Christ SUFFERED the same way, and set a worthy precedent for us, “Saying, Father, if thou be willing, REMOVE THIS CUP from me: nevertheless NOT MY WILL, BUT THINE, BE DONE” [Luke 22:42] I plead with you to RESIST every move of Satan, using family or friends to weaken your FAITH with THOUGHTS and IMAGINATIONS CONTRARY to the WILL of God, “Whom RESIST STEDFAST IN FAITH, knowing that the SAME AFFLICTIONS ARE ACCOMPLISHED IN YOUR BRETHREN that are in the world” [1 Peter 5:9]

4. FELLOWSHIP OF HIS SUFFERING is living in strict OBEDIENCE to the WILL of God. Paul trained as a LAWYER, but God arrested him on the road to DAMASCUS. The disappointment of family and friends are best imagined when he shunned what he could have been to BECOME what God wanted him to be, saying: “… I COUNT ALL THINGS BUT LOSS for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: FOR WHOM I HAVE SUFFERED THE LOSS OF ALL THINGS, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ” [Philippians 3:8] Listen carefully, WILL of God CONTRADICTS WILL of man and “… that which is HIGHLY ESTEEMED AMONG MEN IS ABOMINATION IN THE SIGHT OF GOD” [Luke 16:15] When the Jews offered to make Jesus King, He declined because it was not the WILL of God [John 6:15] Brethren, our professed FAITH in Christ and MATERIAL GAIN are nothing if we are not who God wants us to be. I warn you to beware of FALSE TEACHERS and “… men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, SUPPOSING THAT GAIN IS GODLINESS: from such withdraw thyself” [1 Timothy 6:5] Listen to God, not man, to discern who God wants you to be and be ready to experience FELLOWSHIP OF HIS SUFFERING, “Yea, and ALL THAT WILL LIVE GODLY IN CHRIST JESUS SHALL SUFFER PERSECUTION” [2 Timothy 3:12]

5. Friend, the appearance of Christ is closer than what you think, “IF WE SUFFER, WE SHALL ALSO REIGN WITH HIM: if we deny him, he also will deny us” [2 Timothy 2:12] Accept Jesus Christ today as your Lord and Saviour and you shall reign with Him, amen.

SEAL OF GOD

1. SEAL OF GOD is God’s EVERLASTING APPROVAL to LIVE FOREVER, as TRUE WITNESS of His NAME and PERSON. When Pharaoh promoted Joseph, he gave him his RING and MEDALLION bearing the SEAL of constituted AUTHORITY. The SEAL transferred the AUTHORITY and PERSONALITY of Pharaoh to Joseph, to RULE as TRUE WITNESS of his PERSON, as it is written: “THOU SHALT BE OVER MY HOUSE, and ACCORDING UNTO THY WORD SHALL ALL MY PEOPLE BE RULED: only in the throne will I be greater than thou” [Genesis 41:40] As long as Joseph had the SEAL, whatever he SAID or DID was accounted to Pharaoh, but Pharaoh’s SEAL was limited by TIME and there soon “… arose up a NEW KING OVER EGYPT, WHICH KNEW NOT JOSEPH” [Exodus 1:8] SEAL OF GOD is not limited by TIME or LIFETIME; it is God IMPRESSING His PERSONALITY in us, to raise EVERLASTING WITNESSES of His POWER and EXCELLENCY.

2. SEAL OF GOD is the PERSONALITY of God made compatible with man and CONCEIVED in Mary, when the angel said, “… The HOLY GHOST SHALL COME UPON THEE, and the POWER OF THE HIGHEST shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee SHALL BE CALLED THE SON OF GOD” [Luke 1:35] The SON OF GOD lived amongst us, the “… EXPRESS IMAGE OF HIS PERSON …”, in the FORM of man [Hebrews 1:3] We do not have much record of His early life, until “… the HOLY GHOST DESCENDED IN A BODILY SHAPE LIKE A DOVE UPON HIM, and a VOICE CAME FROM HEAVEN, which said, THOU ART MY BELOVED SON; in thee I am well pleased” [Luke 3;22] The HOLY GHOST came upon Mary and she gave birth to Jesus, the EXPRESS IMAGE of God. At Jordan, the Holy Ghost came down as the SEAL of God, confirming Jesus Christ as the EXPRESS IMAGE and LIKENESS of God in who “… DWELLETH ALL THE FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY” [Colossians 2:9] If you ever wondered why Jesus TARRIED for thirty years to kick off His earthly ministry, He did so to set the pattern for us. We are BORN AGAIN in the IMAGE of God, and by the SEAL OF SEAL confirmed in His LIKENESS. As the IMAGE without the LIKENESS cannot please God, let us, therefore, in watching and praying WAIT on the Lord to receive the PROMISE of the FATHER [Acts 1:4]

3. SEAL OF GOD is a SURE PROMISE, as it is written: “But YE SHALL RECEIVE POWER, after that the HOLY GHOST IS COME UPON YOU: and YE SHALL BE WITNESSES UNTO ME …” [Acts 1:8] The pattern is unchanged, Jesus “… BREATHED ON THEM, and saith unto them, RECEIVE YE THE HOLY GHOST”. By His BREATHE the Apostles were BORN AGAIN of the Holy Ghost, in the IMAGE of God [John 20:22] When we come to Jesus, we are BORN AGAIN, in the IMAGE of Christ, as BABES, even as Jesus in the manger. As BABES, we are simply not ready to exercise the awesome POWER of God to function as VALID WITNESS of His PERSON. Though HEIRS of the PROMISE, the HEIR “… as long AS HE IS A CHILD, DIFFERETH NOTHING FROM A SERVANT, though he be lord of all” [Galatians 4:1] The Apostles WAITED, as Jesus did, and the HOLY GHOST which “DESCENDED IN A BODILY SHAPE LIKE A DOVE UPON HIM”, came down as TONGUES OF FIRE, “… And THEY WERE ALL FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST, … ” [Acts 2:4] This time, the SEAL OF GOD was IMPRESSED by FIRE and they were FILLED with the LIKENESS of Jesus Christ. They became as Jesus in every manner and were rightly called CHRISTIANS. Brethren, we are not CHRISTIANS until the SEAL OF GOD is IMPRESSED on us by the HOLY GHOST and we are FILLED with the PERSONALITY of Jesus Christ.

4. SEAL OF GOD is Jesus Christ in us WITNESSING of Himself, “How God ANOINTED JESUS of Nazareth WITH THE HOLY GHOST AND POWER: who WENT ABOUT DOING GOOD, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for GOD WAS WITH HIM” [Acts 10:38] The early Church gave TRUE WITNESS of Christ, and with “… GREAT POWER GAVE THE APOSTLES WITNESS of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. NEITHER WAS THERE ANY AMONG THEM THAT LACKED …“ [Acts 4:33-34] Brethren, there is no updated version of the SEAL OF GOD; He is unchangeable and His STANDARDS infallible. We must be BORN AGAIN and restored by the HOLY GHOST, in the IMAGE of God. Afterwards, we must WAIT in FAITH to receive the SEAL OF GOD and be made PERFECT in His LIKENESS. The SEAL OF GOD is our WEDDING GARMENT to the MARRIAGE SUPPER of the LAMB, when we which are alive shall be revealed in the fulness of the stature of Christ “… come in the unity of the faith, and of the KNOWLEDGE OF THE SON OF GOD, unto A PERFECT MAN, unto the measure of the stature of the FULNESS OF CHRIST [Ephesians 4:13] Beloved, let us put aside all distractions of the FLESH and WAIT on the Lord, WATCHING and PRAYING to be “… SEALED WITH THAT HOLY SPIRIT OF PROMISE” [Ephesians 1:13]

5. Friend, if you are not BORN AGAIN, I plead with you to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, and WAIT on Him in fervent FAITH to receive the SEAL OF GOD, amen
