And Jesus went into Jerusalem and into the temple. So when He had looked around at all things, as the hour was already late, He went out to Bethany with the twelve.   Mark 11:11

Christians must always see the bigger picture when facing spiritual attacks like this COVID-19 pandemic. We need to do what Jesus did when He entered the temple and surveyed the sight. He looked around at all things, not a few things, most things or some things, but all things. Are you viewing this pandemic with the proper perspective? Are you seeing everything? Do you really know what’s going on, from the spiritual perspective? 

Hosea 4:6 says that God’s people perish for a lack of knowledge. That has always been the devil’s main weapon to use against us in spiritual combat. We have the authority from heaven to stop this attack in its tracks. But if you don’t know who you are, what you can do or what Satan’s true objective is here, you can’t be the mountain-moving believer God is counting on.

Yes, this is a virus attack that has killed many, and made many sick. Certainly, the devil is happy about that. But beyond that, do you understand this is a demonically inspired attack against the church, and the Great Commission? Have you discerned all things?  The world can’t go where only Christians can go to destroy and defeat this attack – because its roots are spiritual, not physical.

We do our best to obey those in authority, and be law-abiding citizens. But when those same authorities start using their clout to suppress our God-given mandate to preach the gospel, that’s when we need to step over into civil disobedience, just like Christians have done since the days of the early church.  In the name of being “safe”, our religious freedoms are now under attack, and that’s all part of Satan’s plan to shut down the preaching of the Gospel. We cannot, and must not, allow that.  Its critical we look around at everything going on here. Ungodly people are trying to use this pandemic as an excuse to close down churches. They hate Jesus, the gospel and you and I. It’s time to push back. We must do whatever must be done to resist them. We must be fearless in a world bound by fear. We must attack the attack – not just against the virus itself, but against the evil agenda hard at work to destroy the church.   Its time to overturn their tables!
