Wake Up America To The Truth About COVID-19

I have seen and been sent information on what COVID-19 is about over the past few months. I have been private messaged, called, and sent Facebook Live video’s on the topic. I have heard an increasing innumerable number of prophesies concerning what is going on and what will happen.

Some of the things I have seen and heard are as follows:

COVID-19 is fake news; it is a strategy to divert attention away from Obamagate; it’s a ploy to get Trump to lose the election; it was designed to take away our freedoms; it’s a vaccine conspiracy masterminded by Bill Gates; it is part of a well thought-out plan to create a New World Order; it is the beginning of the Tribulation (as mentioned in the Book of Revelation); it was created to usher in communism and turn America into Venezuela.

To some, it is all an AGENDA that they have against America (to turn her away from God). To too many, it is anything and everything BUT a true pandemic

Many times, these claims come from and are promulgated by sincere and honest people who seek to inform others about what they believe is going on (based on what they have read from sources they deem credible).

Yet, as sincere as these intentions might be we cannot confuse sincerity and honesty with truthfulness. We need to understand when we have moved away from concern and moved into ardent fear mongering. We need to know the difference between being fed credible information and being fed incredulous stories that has been carefully and intricately weaved to fit a narrative that we are wired to believe…information created to touch all the hot bottom issues to which we are emotionally sensitized.

I was nearly sucked into this cesspool of fear and anxiety until I took a step back and looked at the situation from a wider viewpoint. First, I noticed that most, if not all of the views on the pandemic were America-focused. Second, I noticed that all the explanations had a ridiculously heavy political bent (on each side of the aisle).

Now, I want you to consider this question: Why would the rest of the world shut down their economy, risk political instability, sink themselves deeper into more debt, and create even greater social unrest and deepen the gulf between rich and poor…just to promote a hoax or to alter the political landscape of the U.S? Why wouldn’t they just wait Trump (assuming they disliked him since he has a max of 4 more years to go if he wins re-election)?

Do you really think South Africa or Colombia or Ghana really care about the U.S so much that they would intentionally cripple their own people? The simple is NO!

So here is my take: If the rest of the world is taking such drastic steps, there might be something to this idea that COVID-19 truly is a pandemic.

Now, from a medical perspective, COVID-19 is one of the simplest viruses to deal with. COVID-19 is neither an airborne pathogen (cannot be spread by breathing in the air) nor is it spread by insects.

To stop it, what is mainly required is physical distancing, self-physical isolation (for around 2 weeks), the practice of good sanitation (soap and water destroys it easily).

Given the social interaction technology we have, we don’t actually have to be socially distanced from each other. Note: I make a distinction between physical public distancing and social distancing. We can socially interact via Zoom, Facebook, and other platforms.

Given the manufacturing prowess the world possesses, soap and water or hand-sanitizer should not be an issue (especially in developed nations).

And at least in the U.S, there should be little issues keeping 6 ft separation between groups of people (I haven’t seen shanty towns or Favelas in the U.S). Yet, COVID-19 is a big deal here in the U.S though we are one of the countries best placed to deal with it.

Perhaps COVID-19 is here to tell us about ourselves:

Could it be that COVID-19 is really showing us that we may not care about our fellow man as much as we think we do? That we love putting our own interest above everyone else’s? Could it be that we don’t like being inconvenienced at all? Could it be that we would rather put money ahead of people? Might COVID-19 be showing us that need to stop politicizing everything? Could it be that we can’t stand having someone else telling us what to do (even if it to for our own benefit)?

The truth is that COVID-19 is showing us that our love game is weak.

COVID-19 is has one message: ‘If you choose to put someone else’s interest above your won, you would easily defeat me’

Love is selfless sacrifice to serve and meet the needs of others. Let’s sacrifice for one another America once again. It is time to stop trying to get someone else to sacrifice on our behalf. The military can’t do it this time. We have to find the hero inside of us. It is time to truly love one another. It is time to wake up to LOVE.

Note: It took a year of the bus boycott to get the bus system in Montgomery to be integrated. That is the kind of disciple we need now in choosing to LOVE.

How To Respond To COVID-19 Conspiracy Theories

Have you noticed how many COVID-19 conspiracy theories are out there on social media? I have been sent numerous videos by well-meaning people concerning these theories.

There are people saying this pandemic is about a vaccine conspiracy; its about a new world order; it’s about China trying to take over the world; its a ploy by the Democrats; its the beginning of the end of the world, so on and so forth.

So what should you do with all these conspiracy theories? Should you pay attention to them?

I suggest you do what God told Isaiah to do when it comes to conspiracy theories

The Lord has given me a strong warning not to think like everyone else does. He said, “Don’t call everything a conspiracy, like they do,
and don’t live in dread of what frightens them. Make the Lord of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life. He is the one you should fear. He is the one who should make you tremble. He will keep you safe.
– Isaiah 8:11-14

See, every time there is danger and uncertainty, there are people who come out with conspiracy theories. Judging from Isaiah 8:11-14, it is clear that God does not want us to pay attention to them. Why? It is because most conspiracy theories are born out of fear…and fear is not of God. Let me clarify…any fear outside of the fear (respect and awe) of God is NOT of God.

So, rather than respect and live in awe of conspiracy theories; rather than allow them to keep you up at night, the best thing to do is focus your attention on God and understand that no matter what happens in this world; no matter how this virus came to be, He will keep you safe and sound.

Don’t be a worrier concerning your future, become a warrior concerning your faith.

Look to God and see what He has to speak to you. Those who have done this find out that God speaks something to them that doesn’t have to do with the virus. Why? God is saying to them “Don’t worry about this virus, I got it…instead think about the areas of your life I am working in”.

Instead of the thinking about conspiracy theories, think about future God is cooking up for you
