TOPIC: SALVATION IS OF THE LORD
TEXT: Jonah 2 vs 9, Acts 28 vs 28, Romans 10 vs 13.
When the whole world of the present days will come to the term or the realization that salvation comes from the Lord, then the shark or whale that swallowed them will vomit them out just like Jonah. If God did not permit corona virus, it will not be there.
Whatever you are going through, God allowed it. When we come to this realization just like Jonah and declare that Salvation is of the Lord, the whole world shall have redemption, they shall have solution and freedom.
Many people and nations are going through what Jonah went through in the belly of the fish. Jonah suffered so much before he realized that Salvation is of the Lord just as the world has suffered in the belly of corona virus. It is only when they shall realize that Salvation is of the Lord like Jonah, that they will be vomited out. God will give corona virus charge to vomit the world from the present predicament of COVID-19.
Only God can do this. Only God has the power to speak to corona virus and all its associates and they will release the world from the present predicament of suffering, death and troubles. So, everyone must realize or come to the term that Salvation is of the Lord and Solution is of the Lord and then miracle will take place. Jonah 2 vs 9.
There is no way Jonah could have come out of the belly of the shark by his power, and there is no way Jonah could have been delivered of the shark alive by his power, Only God allowed Jonah to be swallowed by that whale and only God has the power to allow Jonah to be brought out safely from the whale and that is why when Jonah realized that Salvation is of the Lord, God spoke to the whale and the whale vomited him out.
In this present day, God will speak to that situation and it will vomit the world from the present predicament and damage.
POINT 1: THE REASONS AND WARNING OF GOD'S WRATH
Many people and nations all over the world has forsaken the Lord and have all gone too far from God and over the years, God has sent problems to swallow them up from pestilence to pestilence.
We've heard of Ebola, HIV AIDS, Cancer, now it is Coronavirus. God had been sending it as a messenger warning them to come back to Him. They have refused to repent and are suffering in the belly of this problems which is also such things that God has released to bring the world back to him.
We can talk about poverty, economic recession all over the world as Coronavirus, Ebola, HIV AIDS, Cancer and many more but yet they have hardened their hearts and many people all over the world have refused to recognize and return to God and trying to challenge God. It doesn't work like that.
God allowed these problems to make people to turn back to him. 2nd Chronicles 7 vs 13, Hosea 13 vs 9.
Many people have destroyed themselves and many nations have destroyed themselves but our help comes from God , God will help us and end this predicament. When Jonah failed to realize this, he suffered in the belly of the fish. He did not know when his predicament will end just like the world does not know when this present predicament will end because they are being swallowed up by it. Jonah 2 vs 9-10.
God spoke to the animal, to the fish, to that trouble and what appeared to be impossible became possible, the trouble vomited him out. Let us realize that Salvation is of the Lord and God will speak to that virus and that trouble will vomit the world out. Everyone should realize that God's wrath is upon humanity for forsaking and rejecting him. When we realize that Salvation is of the Lord, It will mark the end of all the crises.
POINT 2: OUR EXPECTED RESPONSE AND THE REMEDY.
All the people and nations should no longer delay in seeking the face of God in their suffering of this pandemic, of famine and this resultant death. We should not continue to isolate from God but realize that Salvation is not of man or any other spirit rather we should understand that Salvation is of God just like Jonah did and prayed immensely to God in his time of need. Jonah 2 vs 1-10.
Let us follow the principle of Jonah because that brought remedy to him. Romans 10 vs 13. So everyone would repent and call upon the lord like Jonah. Everyone should realize and come to the term that Only God can save, only God can do this, that Salvation is of God then that thing, that crises will vomit us out. Jonah 2 vs 10, Acts 28 vs 28. Salvation of the Lord has come to you, don't continue to turn your back away from him. 1st John 3 vs 8, John 8 vs 36, 1st Corinthians 3 vs 21. If we shall surrender to Jesus and amend our ways, this Crises and pandemic affecting us today will be a thing of the past.
For Sinners and Backsliders, confess your sins and accept Jesus Christ today as your Lord and personal Saviour.
Romans 3:23; 1 John 3: 8 & 9; 1 John 5: 17a; Isaiah 59: 1;
Sin is dangerous. It is destructive and yet almost the whole world has gone into sin.
Unbelieve is sin. Selfishness is sin; Covetousness is sin, Insincerity is sin; backbiting, murmuring, speaking evil of others, these are terrible sin.
Going to native doctors, stealing from Government, stealing from companies and individuals, that is sin.
If you are among those people that are involved in fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, abortion, that is terrible wickedness.
Fighting and quarreling, smoking and drunkenness all these are evil. Ask for the mercy of God. Are you into polygamous marriage or you have sent away your wife or you moved away from your husband, that is sin. Are you a woman dressing like a man or a man dressing like a woman, all that is sin.
The unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
