WHAT 'TODAY' HAS INSTORED FOR US?

Well, 'Today' is significant as it would define our road to our heavenly home. Because it is our deeds today that would mirror our rewards tomorrow.


"Let today be a day of prayers, a day of reconciliation, a day of repentance, a day of redemption, a day when we all take a U-turn from our sinful and wicked ways, for all mankind across the world". Romans 3:23 says," For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God". Today, is the day of deliverance from our sins or past. Let us turn back to the Lord from immorality and the worldly lust. The gospel of Matthew 3:2 writes, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand".


Today, Christians/Churches need a great Mount Carmel Revival across the globe. We have deviated from our heavenly path. We have been blinded and are intoxicated, swayed away by the beauties of our mundane existence. We are too busy aggrandizing wealth and possession. Corruption, debauchery, orgies, injustice, nepotism etc., are rampant everywhere. Well, all these are mundane, food for moths and termites, and they won't last long. Let us be aware that this is a hedonistic world. Our lives is just a mist of cloud that appears for a while and vanishes away or an uprootted grass that withers away by evening as the Bible laments. We have strayed away from God like in the days of Sodom. Christian homes and Churches have crumbled down.


And here comes the big trouble, Corona virus to put us to the test. Do we, christians have sufficient faith so as to save us from our wretchedness or from this pandemic thing called Covid-19 today? And like Elijah, if it means trouble to bring the people to their knees, then let there be trouble. Well, we are put to the testing of our (fragile)faith by our father in heaven. All that remain is prayer on our part and to have communion with the Lord. So, let us pray more, read the Bible, have family devotion, and institute a good christian family in our homes and churches today. God sometimes punishes His children to bring them back to His fold as was with the Israelites under the stewardship of Moses in the barren desert, on the way to Canaan.


Moreover, today is significant as we need to realize that these are some of the signs which amplifies that 'The End' is near. Wars, earthquakes, floods, wildfires, pestilences, diseases have become the orders of the day. And the most shocking one has been the lightning outbreak of the Corona Virus in Wuhan and across the world, taking huge toll of lives till date. Today, we are facing the biggest trials of our lives, never like before. Besides, the Bible says there are much more bigger ones still to come. We are in a total lockdown the world across like we had never experienced before. Human civilization is at virtual standstill. Our lives is at stake. HUMANITY is under threat from a virus, COVID-19! And being pandemic it has caused a global catastrophe. It has shaken the World governments and our faith too.


To be more candid, we humans have self-isolated and quarantined ourselves to avoid the onslaught of the virus, by which the Biblical quarantine has been justified.
Isaiah 26:23 says, "Go home, my people, and lock your doors! Hide yourself for a little while until the Lord's anger has passed". Well, let us submit ourselves fervently to the Lord for this event is a warning call for all us, a gracious opportunity opened, to turn back to the Lord before it is too late. For the Gospel of Matthew 13:49-50 says," Careless christians who miss the event will have no other similar gracious opportunity".


Let us humble ourselves and be on our knees and start praying for each other, for our families, friends, Churches and not to set aside the health-workers, across the world as we are in Dark Times. For they need our prayers today as we do need theirs. Prayer is our greatest weapon. It can move mountains and work wonders. So, let us pray, pray and pray without ceasing.


Let this be for the glory of God, not men. Amen.

Yours' brother in Christ.
