The latest 'pandemic' in reference to the COVID-19 is a massive shock to all. A sudden increase of cases of a virus that has spread over a multiple countries and continents hindering everyone's life and many even lost their lives due to the a submicroscopic infectious disease.
Since the RKN is a Christian Newspaper the fallowing responses are in accordance to the Holy word but also the facts as well.
The United States was originally started, as many know, by Christians wanting the 'Freedom of religion'. And thru this constitutional right as a christian US citizens are supposed to have the right to guide many of our actions by our faith in Lord Jesus Christ. "For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith." (Romans 1:17).
In the US Constitution First Amendment, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
All Christians face a dilemma wanting to have faith in God that, "by Jesus Christ stripes we are healed" (Isaiah 53:5) yet needing to live in society too. City's, counties and almost the whole US enforcing everyone to wear masks in order to enter any stores, restaurants, gas stations, most importantly to work.
Living thru this pandemic as a Christian in the US is jeopardizing our Freedom of Religion. We are being intimidated to wear the mask just to live!
Leading to a 'double-jeopardy' because than in essence we are sinning as Christians. As it is written to live without faith is a SIN (Romans 14:23). As a christian we should be able to live in our constitutional rights of Freedom of Religion and in our belief of Lord Jesus Christ! That by FAITH we should have the right to promote the life of Lord Jesus Christ is stronger than any spirit of sickness or fear yet we cant. Forcing many of us to wear the face masks just to get thru the day from work and daily living activities. The dilemma where we are not afraid to breath oxygen, yet those that don't believe in Jesus hold us accountable for those who are infected.
So how do we live in a bondage-free conscious in Lord Jesus Christ doctrine during the corona-virus-19 pandemic?
There is the threat of Sin as a christian and yet also the NEED to also live too!
Recorded in the bible of the time before Moses, the Hebrews had "...multiplied greatly, increased in numbers and became so numerous that the land was filled with them." (Exodus 1:8). And the new king had decided to oppress them since they were too numerous. "But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites." (Exodus 1:12).
The principle that God's people were forced to fallow rules and even to the point of being enslaved which 'hindered their faith in God' and yet they flourished in number still. The fact that these hindrance did not stop God's people from living nor even multiplying is a powerful truth!
Though nowadays during this COVID-19 pandemic Christians aren't handed to slave-masters but still 'rules' have been set forth 'hindering us to live our faith in God' thru Lord Jesus Christ! The resolution is to comply with the mandates and continue living knowing in our hearts Christians are still God's people and we will still continue to multiply despite the hindrance to show our faith in God especially with Lord Jesus Christ.
The Lord God knows we need to live and get thru our daily living. Free believers of Lord Jesus Christ we are all still God's people despite the hindrance to live in our faith just like the principles set forth from the story of the Hebrews and Egyptians in the book of Exodus. We have nothing to fear .... we all know how the story of against the enemy ended..." Pharaoh's chariots and his army he has hurled into the sea. The best of Pharaoh's officers are drowned in the Red Sea. " (Exodus 15:4).
Therefore, the spirit of sickness and fear tossed to the sea!
In Lord Jesus Christ name Amen!
Lets all progress ourselves in the knowledge of the Lord and try to apply him in all our living by just believing on the Lord Jesus Christ and therefore do and restore the kingdom of God within you! ALWAYS REMEMBER...For All the promises, no matter how many they are...Is a YES and an Amen thru Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 1:20)! Thank you Lord Jesus Christ - Amen!
