It is the testimony of the faithful through the ages, that whatever predicament they were in, they would call upon the Lord to save them. It was David who has his testimony as a young boy with the sheep, that he protected them from wolves and dangers. He was later chased and tracked down by Saul who tried to kill him. But in each obstacle he encountered he called out to God and was saved.
You see God’s plan of salvation does not start at some illusive second coming or at the end of the world. You see the saving of God is continuous and not an event, but a lifetime of experiencing Gods ongoing faithfulness as savior. That was David’s testimony through the Psalms, and why God called David a man after His own heart. When David was surrounded by his enemies, he said he calls out to God and “He sends out His word and melts them;. Pretty cool.
It was those with Moses who wandering through the wilderness got sick got hungry were tired and met with so many obstacles yet in all these God provided a solution for them. He drew Waters from The flinty Rock. They threw through wood in the waters to purify it for drinking as instructed. He gave them manna from Heaven to eat. He brought them quale to eat from the ocean. Why scripture even says that God cleaned their teeth and their shoes didn’t wear out, showing us the miniscule details of Gods care and provisions for us. He saves us from all our troubles, as long as we stay under His care.
As far as them getting sick? Moses was instructed to raise up a pole (indicative of the cross) with a dead snake (Satan) wrapped around it for the people to look upon and be healed.
So you know who the counterfeit is today. The whole medical field associated with legalized drugs of pharmaceutical products. A word which means witch craft. Yet they have the cures? Blasphemy! Look to the cross.
So now today we don’t need God. Why we also have government help and stipends insurance policies (which comes from the word, police, so think about what that really means). We have credit cards and all kinds of programs. Medic-Care and social security, unemployment and welfare. Why who needs God? You have your God.
They are creating customers not cures or you wouldn’t need a prescription. It’s a growing industry.
With God it only takes a confession of faith. That whoever believes and confesses in the saving, Savior of God will be saved”. No injections, no prescriptions or ongoing treatment involved.
But many think of Gods provisions, no that can’t be, that is too simple. Yes, it is that simple.
So you see, the new Boogeyman in our day that’s demanding a new type of cure. We have a pandemic virus, and from this the world needs to be saved. But with God there is only one real cure and saving for all mankind. There is one who saves, meaning Savior. The Savior of God, spelled out here in scripture. John 3.
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should [c]not perish but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him would be saved.
18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds (lack of faith) were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
Meaning, in the face of this virus monster, it is defeated by a confession of faith in the saving of God called “The Only Begotten” and His work of the cross. Look at that and be saved. Any other saving is superficial. But the choice is yours.
Have you ever gone to church? Have you ever heard the phrase that “the Kingdom of God is at hand”? Well that’s what we preach. The saving of God is emminent. Meaning, now, immediate and forever.
