WORDS OF WISDOM FOR THIS HOUR
Dr. Jonathan David
(Coronovirus – Covid‐19)
Put this crisis in the proper perspective. Our perception and the discerning of Spirit comes through the Spirit of Revelation and Understanding. We will receive the revelation from God directly.
To receive the revelation we must hear what God is saying in the matter. The Spirit of Understanding will help us interpret what God is saying. Wisdom will help us execute strategies to prevail over this crisis and oppression.
The entrance of His Word brings light (Psalms 119:130) and that light is a Lamp unto our feet and a Light unto our path. (Psalms 119:105).
Isaiah 60:1‐5 (NASB) 1 “Arise, shine; for yourlight has come, And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. 2 “For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the Lord will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you. 3 “Nations will come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. 4 “Lift up your eyes round about and see; They all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from afar, And your daughters will be carried in the arms. 5 “Then you will see and be radiant, And your heart will thrill and rejoice; Because the abundance of the sea will be turned to you, The wealth of the nations will come to you.
Psalms 62:11 (NASB) Once God has spoken; Twice I have heard this:
That power belongs to God
We got to see what God sees. Wrong reactions can trigger new sets of problems. The Word of God is settled in the heavens (Psalms 119:38). When God speaks, there is no contradiction and it brings power to change. We don’t want to see what men is saying. We want to see what God is saying. The world has no answer and even if they do, pray that we are the fortunate ones to receive that answer. In the last days, it is perilous times where men become lovers of self. We must come to a place to receive grace in this race. We are racing against time. So many things are happening too quickly and nations are caught unaware. Difficult times will come. Man will be lovers of self, money, violence, religion, pleasure, knowledge rather than lovers of God.
There is now a fixed point for our faith to be established because God’s Word is the material for our miracle.
This is my perspective on the matter:
1. Don’t aggravate the problem by bringing negative emotions and fuel our fear and defile our soul with wrong reactions.
Don’t make the problem more by adding our fear, frustration, fed up with everybody, etc. People are fed up because they can’t find an answer, especially at this hour. We need supernatural grace. When we have negative emotions, we will get angry. But let our faith sets us free and let us overcome.
We must build up our spiritual immune system by feeding our faith and starving our doubts. We must be vigilant to keep God’s Word before our eyes. We must seek clearly what God is saying instead of using our own interpretation to bring fear into our lives.
The enemy’s plan and schemes will not prevail but we have to stand on God’s word. His Word says there is only safety in dwelling in the shelter of the Most High. We must dwell in the shadow of the Almighty (Psalms 91:1).
He will deliver us from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence (Psalms 91:3).
We will be set securely on high because we love Him (Psalms 91:14).
He promised to give His angels charge concerning you and guard you in all your ways (Psalms 91:11).
Love Him, be called to His purpose and serve God with all your soul and strength. He is sending His angels to guard us and in all our ways. So let peace come into our heart. Negative emotions are dangerous. (Hebrews 12:14). Don’t add to the problem. Become the answer.
2. We cannot live in denial, brushing aside problems like they do not exist.
If we look at all the lockdowns that has come upon cities, we can see that so many people are oblivious of what is happening. They say nothing is going to happen.
Let God speak to us. We cannot be like the ostrich that buries the head in the sand and say there is no enemy. Therefore, there is none. Just because we cannot see does not mean it is not there.
This is the kind of challenges we are going to face in the future but with greater intensity because the devil know his time is short. If he can’t get you, he will try to get our loved ones. So be on the alert.
We don’t have to be afraid because God is on our side, God is near.
Hold together the corporate grace and corporate anointing in the churches. Pray like never before.
Revelation 12:13‐17 (NASB) 13 And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. 14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she *was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 15 And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood. 16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth. 17 So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
2 Peter 3:3‐7 (NASB) 3 Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.” 5 For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water, 6 through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water. 7 But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the Day of Judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
3. Don’t exaggerate the problem and speculate and be deceived by all the conspiracy and controversial theories
2 Thessalonians 2:2‐4 (NASB) 2 that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so‐called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.
2 Thessalonians 9-12 (NASB) 9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.
God is giving us supernatural grace in this hour. We need wisdom at this hour. We come to a place to know what is God and what is not. Exaggeration comes by believing a lie. The position of stature and the keys of the kingdom given to us will help us override and overrule satanic activity. The Spirit of Truth will set us free from all of our deeds.
We must come to a place to know what is God and what is from the devil. The internet has too much lies. God is sending a restraining order to the powers of darkness.
4. Don’t under estimate the problem
14 Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord.
15 See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many
16 that there be no immoral or godless person like Esau, who sold his own birthright for a single meal.
17 For you know that even
afterwards, when he desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought for it with tears.
Take necessary precautions. Our careless attitude can cause many to be affected, infected and defiled. Your carelessness can open attacks on the next generation. The Discerning of Spirit will expose the spirit of deception.
5. Don’t procrastinate in doing what is right and what is needful at the moment.
5 Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, “Hear the word of the Lord of hosts,
6 ‘Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house and all that your fathers have laid up in store to this day will be carried to Babylon; nothing will be left,’ says the Lord.
7 ‘And some of your sons who will issue from you, whom you will beget, will be taken away, and they will become officials in the palace of the king of Babylon.’”
8 Then Hezekiah said to Isaiah, “The word of the Lord which you have spoken is good.” For he thought, “For there will be peace and truth in my days.”
What is needful must be done. Sometimes by practical ways, we can keep the enemy out. If is those who are careless suffers. If we are asked not to go there, then don’t go. We must meet God’s just requirement so that our sins are cleansed and we have the approval from God. Our faith in Him will open up the pathways in the spirit for our next generation.
In verse 8, we hear Hezekiah said and thought that the prophecy of Isaiah is good for it will not happen in his days. Without realizing that it will destroy all that is his and all that his father had laid up and in store to this day.
Delayed obedience is disobedience. Take the necessary precautions to guard ourselves and our loved ones. Follow the guidelines and instructions already given by the authorities:
– Washing hands regularly.
– Wear mask when you are outside your house.
– Practice social distancing / physical distancing of at least 1 meter or 3 feet.
– Stay at home as much as possible unless absolutely necessary.
Build your own immune system. Shut our fear by strengthening the inner man with courage to finish the
6. We don’t have problem to solve, we have a decision to make.
Decide on standing firm on the Word that we have received from God. Be watchful, and diligent in prayer. Keep declaring, proclaiming, and prophesying His truth revealed.
The Word that goes out from His mouth shall not return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11). The mountains and the hills on our way will align and adjust itself according to the perfect plan of God (Isaiah 55:12). Hear and heed the word of God, building in the Spirit on our most holy faith.
7. Renew our mind for possibility thinking and for impossible things to become possible.
When we see the invisible through the eyes of faith, we can do the impossible through the power of the Spirit. Set your mind on the things of the Spirit and you will soar with the wings of the eagle. The stones thrown at us will become stepping stones for us to go to the next level. Think of the opportunities for us to rise up to do good.
God is shaking everything that can be shaking but He will also give us the way of escape.
8. Every problem has a limited life span.
The prophetic word will put an expiry date to the work of the devil. This is the time of promotion and He wants to see our attitude. Tough times never last, tough people do. When the going gets tough, the tough gets going. Fear is afraid, doubt will self‐destruct, terror will be terrorised and death die.
9. God will take care of what you go through, you must take care of how you go through.
Most times God will allow the storms to rage but He calms the saints with His power and peace. God’s test brings out the best. Satanic oppression will bring out our worst.
You must become better and not bitter through our sufferings and if you share in His suffering, you will also share in His glory. An eagle that can soar, will never worry about crossing the bridge.
