Corona Virus 2020

In the midst of these seemingly uncertain times, I want to encourage you to continue to stand strong in your faith, upon God’s concrete, extremely certain and powerful Word. God is still on the throne. He is still The Almighty One - still all knowing, still all powerful and still in you, yes right there with you now! He has not changed and the covenant in which we stand has not been altered in the least, nor will it ever be.

The devil would love to capitalize upon this current situation to convince you to fear, to get your eyes off of the Truth regarding, not only Who our God is, but who you are in Him. We are not weak worms of the dust, on the contrary, we are children of the Most High God, one with Him. Our birthright is the Word of God and His Kingdom resides within us now (Luke 17:20).

I want to caution you to watch your words now more than ever. It takes the same amount of energy to speak words of faith as it does words of doubt and uncertainty. Remember what is written in Proverbs 18:21 - “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” The last part of that verse refers to those who understand this God ordained principle, see the value of it and put it to work in order to reap God’s intended manifestation for His people - just as those who are foolish with their words, ignorant of this principle, will reap what they’ve sown - becoming, in a sense, their own worst enemy.

Fear gives place to the enemy. We need to recognize he has no authority to do anything in this earth except by usurping man’s authority through their thoughts and words. In Genesis 1:26 we see that God gave mankind dominion over all of the earth and He never took it back. Your flesh and blood body is the badge of authority upon this earth.

Not only that, but when you became born-again He gave you His authority (Luke 10:19-20) and take special note of verse 20 that reveals that the spirits are subject to us. Know this: we’ve got dominion and God’s supernatural, all-powerful authority now - we simply need to know it and begin to walk in it.

You need to know that you know that you know, satan is a defeated foe. Jesus stripped him completely through the cross (Colossians 2:15). This Scripture is a reference to the Romans parading their defeated enemies through the streets of Rome, stripped, naked, beaten and publicly humiliated. It represents and reveals his complete and total defeat.

I want to encourage you to not allow the mind-set of what’s happening around you to take up residence within you. This too shall pass.

There are so many in the world now who are without hope, who do not know our God and are steeped in fear. You can see it in their eyes. But we are the salt of the earth, we are the light in this dark world. Know that you have the favor of God now(Psalm 5:12) so begin to look for opportunities to encourage others with hope. Look for ways to be a blessing and expect God to open doors for you to share the Gospel.

Psalm 46 speaks of the special favor we have with our God - even in the midst of the worst case events, He still is our refuge and strength, and our trust should always remain in the fact that He is all powerful. We are His covenant people and He will always make a way where there seems to be no way.

These are exciting times. Times when people are open for hope. They need some Good News. You’ve got the Spirit of God within you. Let the light and the anointing that’s within you begin to flow.

Psalm 46

1 God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3 Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah

4 There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved;
God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
6 The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
7 The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

8 Come, behold the works of the Lord,
Who has made desolations in the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariot in the fire.
10 Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

The last time I checked the earth is still here and the mountains are still in place. But this Psalm is saying; even though the worst-case nightmare situation takes place, we still have a refuge in God and we can always count on Him even if the unthinkable is taking place around us.

Did you notice the river? It’s found within the Holy place, the secret place of His presence. It's the river of His blessing, anointing and life. Rivers are always fresh, always flourishing, always moving and are symbolic of being eternal - a never ending abundant supply.

Be still and know that He is God. Be assured, become convinced of Who He is and your special relationship with Him. Take time in personal worship, adoring and honoring Him. Then, after awhile, get quiet before Him and bask in His presence and allow Him to minister His great grace to you.  It’s in this secret place where the greatness of our God is realized, faith is emboldened and the knowing that everything is going to work out just fine becomes a reality within, because we are convinced and know that our God reigns!


Now for some practical natural wisdom regarding the Corona Virus. I received the following from Dr. Colbert's website.

I recently received the below email regarding Coronavirus from a Stanford Hospital board member and wanted to pass it on to you:



If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold, Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.

This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 80 degrees. It hates the Sun.

If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.

If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.

On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.

Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.

Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.

You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.

Can't emphasis enough - drink plenty of water!



It will first infect the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days

The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.

With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.

The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention.


Serious Excellent Advice By Japanese Doctors Treating COVID-19 Cases:

Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry.

Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the virus.

If you don't drink enough water more regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs. That's very dangerous.


Taiwan Experts Provide A Simple Self-check that We Can Do Every Morning:

Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no Fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicates no infection. In critical times, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air.


 I have also read from two reliable sources that nasal irrigation with a saline solution using distilled water is also a very effective preventative measure. They recommended this a couple of times per-day.  This is something I personally do on a daily basis and have been doing for a year or so, just because it makes so much sense to me because of all the toxins and air-borne particles we breath in every day. You can get this on Amazon for under $11.00 on Amazon. Type in Neil Med Sinus Rinse.

This is also available at CVS, Riteaid, Walgreens etc. but you will pay double.

Also here is a link to video on youtube that will answer most of your questions regarding a nasal rinse.
