Day One (01/04/2020)
Isaiah 60:2 (KJV): “ For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee”.
I sincerely thank God for your life. I bless God for keeping you and your family alive. Indeed, Jesus is Lord. Beloved, in the heat of the COVID-19 Pandemic, I want to assure you that you will be safe.
When the *COVID-19* hit Ghana, I began to pray to God for understanding of what is happening around the world. The Holy Spirit ministered to me this scripture: Isaiah 60:2. Interesting, this is an end-time prophetic scripture spoken by Prophet Isaiah. Let see 3 things we can learn from this end-time prophecy:
*1. The Darkness Shall Cover The Earth And The People.*
God is saying “darkness” shall cover the earth. The ‘earth’ here refers to the world and its system of operation. ‘Darkness’ connotes helplessness, hopelessness, lack of understanding, economic failure and destruction. This will be the situation of the world. So, anyone who think the world is going to be any better, is living in deception. No matter what the world and its leaders will do, things will grow worse and worse as we near the second coming of our LORD Jesus Christ. Am not saying this to make you ‘afraid’, but to help you to understand the times and seasons in order for you to live wisely and not ignorantly. Indeed, the COVID-19 has brought darkness to the world. How? The world’s most prestigious scientists and scientific research labs are still struggling to produce a vaccine. The economic situation of the Super Powers and strong nations of the world are shaking. Oil prices are falling. Stock prices are coming down drastically. The world is in darkness indeed. But I have good news for you. Just stay with me and read on!
*2. The LORD Shall Arise Upon You.*
But the good news is that, your case shall be different. You will not be affected by the darkness. The impact of the darkness shall not come upon you. Why? The LORD that you serve shall rise upon you. It means, the LORD will manifest in your affairs making you different. Jesus Christ will distinguish you. When others are mourning, you shall be dancing. When nations are struggling, you will be stable. May you become stronger than strong nations in the name of Jesus. From this day forward, you shall lend to nations and not borrow! Lack and want will never be your portion. In the wake of the global economic heat, you won’t feel it! Jesus is Lord!
*3. His Glory Shall Be Seen Upon You*
The glory of the LORD Jesus shall be “seen” upon you. Who shall see? Those outside of you – that is, the world and the people who are in darkness. The difference between you and them will be too conspicuous. ‘Glory’ here connotes ‘light’ and ‘illumination’. So while the world is in darkness, you will be enjoying divine light and illumination. While they are struggling to solve challenges, you will be providing them solutions cheaply! But there is a price to pay in order to enjoy this exemption.
Now what next? Well, it’s clear that the world is in darkness and will continue to wallow in same till Jesus come. But the good news is that the LORD Jesus will arise upon you and cause His light to separate you from the gross darkness in the world. However, why will Jesus give you such a preferential treatment? Because you are His child. Do you know that not everyone is a child of God? Read for yourself: John 1:12 *“But as many as RECEIVED HIM to them gave he power [access, right] to become the SONS OF GOD, even to them that believe on his name”*. So, you see, you become a child of God only after receiving Him [Jesus Christ] into your life as your LORD and personal saviour. No shortcut! Now, go ahead and say this prayer after me , from the depth of your heart so you become born again and enjoy the divine exemption:
*“Dear LORD Jesus, I accept that I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins. Wash me in the blood of Jesus. Write my name in the book of life and fill me with the Holy Spirit. Thank you for saving me and making me a child of God. I decree that from now, I am divinely exempted from every darkness that will hit the world in Jesus name”*
