"Help me!" "Somebody help us!" I heard it in the spirit realm and I thought, "Father God, what people must be going through. I knew what I was hearing was about the coronavirus because the last time I'd heard someone crying out in the spirit like that, it was after Hurricane Maria and the news didn't know about how people in Puerto Rico were starving and hurting. But, God knew. God doesn't wait for the news to tell His people what to pray for.
Remember, God sees the end from the beginning so He knows all that we're going to endure - in advance. He knows every area where we need to pray and He also knows when people are becoming too selfish and full of self. A lot of what we've seen with the coronavirus is breaking the pride in man because man refuses to come to God. But, Iet's start with some good news. Help is on the way and victory is coming to God's people.

I talked to my mom and she was so excited. She'd been in prayer before Father God. She'd also been watching Pastor Kenneth Copeland. However, when I called I was surprised by her tone. I thought she would say, "Did you see the news?" Or, "New York got hit hard again today." No, she said, "About one more month, little bit beyond and we'll be out". I said, "Excuse me? I don't know what you mean." She said, "Kenneth Copeland said that, too."
My mother went on to say, "About one more month and then she paused (which let me know she was listening for God to speak). She said, ***"When you see the numbers start to go down, it won't be much longer." She said maybe this will be over in May and then said more like the middle of May when we can start going back out but it will be gradual. She also mentioned further in the conversation to not RUSH to go on vacations right away after the self-quarantines end because it's going to be like a "mob scene" and overwhelming as people were holed-up inside for so long. Please keep that in mind when planning vacations - wait as long as you can because the crowds are going to be overwhelming when this lifts.
My mom then added, "Continue to look to Him [God] and remember 'Whose report do you believe?' He [God] keeps saying that over and over. Right now it looks worse, it looks bad. 'Where is God in all of this?' [Meaning, that's what people are asking themselves] They want to know where is God. They look at the government but we have to see that God is right here in the midst." (This article continues below the Financial Help section).
***This was confirmed by Dr. Fauci when he said "When you see the numbers start to go down."
Hang in there, have faith and stay vigilant. Remember, the numbers might go up before they go down so listen for when they go down.

As God spoke through my mom and said that people are asking where is God, we know that God is always here. He's an ever-present help in times of trouble. However, for people that question God's presence, they have to remember, they removed God. They took God out of schools, out of businesses, out of government, out of churches, for that matter. And, that's where the foolish pride comes in. And, then they put "self" on the throne and became gods.
There's a verse in Exodus where God calls the Children of Israel a "stiff-necked" people (Exodus 32:9). If you've ever had cervical neck pain or a pinched nerve in your neck then you know a stiff neck means it's hard to turn your neck left or right and up or down. And, that's the problem with this world.
People turned to idols and forgot God. They turned to idol worship and became so addicted to devices they can't put them down or look away from them. The idols are everywhere: smartphones, video games, movies, selfies and idolizing self on Instagram. And, in the markets.
This generation is so stiff that when the markets fall, men - not God, men say, "Come on boys. Let's come together and buy more stocks." And, when the market rallies, they pat themselves on the back for a job well done and don't give credit or praise to God. We're guilty of self-gratification, too.
When the coronavirus started, some people had to work from home. Maybe they turned to friends and family who said, "Don't worry about it. I get paid on Friday. I'll give you some extra money." Now, in theory, there's nothing wrong with any of that. People should come together and work as a team. However, when they forget God and continue to forget Him, then "Houston, we have a problem". God says "Call on ME in the day of trouble and I will deliver you."
God says, "Seek ME first, then all these things shall be added unto you." But, people haven't done that. If anything, they've tried to push God out of everything. And, that's where God's jealousy and His wrath come in. We can't serve God and man or God and idols, too. God wants us dependent on Him and because man refuses to acknowledge God. Look at the plague that occurred as a result of man's pride. Pharaoh, (I mean the world) needed to see a move of God.
In the Old Testament, Pharaoh refused to let God's people go. God had to show King Pharaoh that God controls everything and God rules, not the other way around. He fed the people less and made them work harder and God was watching. Then, and now. And, that's a mistake. God said in one of His earlier messages "They thought God wasn't watching." When we posted a message the other day about "The Goat is in the Pit", it referenced a message from Christian Exchange:
When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with Him, He will sit on His glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on His right and the goats on His left. (Matthew 25:31-33)
The king then praises the sheep for doing good deeds for him by doing them for "the least of his brothers and sisters" (verse 40), and condemns the goats for failing to do good deeds for him by failing to do them for "the least of these" (verse 45). And he concludes:
Then they [the goats] will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous [the sheep] to eternal life. (Matthew 25:46).
The point is that as the Bible uses reference for God's people as sheep and man or unbelievers as goats, God brings correction because of man's actions (sin). You see, God is just. He wants us to also be just as we become more like God. Meaning, we turn the other cheek and we don't resist evil (Matt. 5:39). We do however, call on God to deliver us because vengeance is His. The concern though is that God let people have a period of time when THEY could have helped the poor. Instead, they chose to turn a blind eye as if to say, "They're not my responsibility."
And, look what THEY did:
There's been a lot of speculation about why the coronvirus is happening. Is this a plague? Is this because of man's sin? Or, is this some kind of special sign from God? While we can't say what God is doing, a lot of people have walked away from God. But, then there are others that are staying faithful and crying out to Him. Is the coronavirus occurring to bring the market down and SHOW people that God is in charge - not man? We can't say. We do know that Father God said the enemy (devil and his demons) wanted God's people afraid and He is making them afraid instead.
If you look at how people have treated the "least of these", there have been racist and violent attacks and disregard for others:
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh, (Luke 21:28).
Is it possible that for everyone that turned a blind eye and ignored people in Puerto Rico or Mexico that now they're seeing firsthand what it's like? Is it possible that the temple set up in New York City is why the coronavirus is so prevalent there? Maybe this is a wake-up call to teach people that the virus isn't what needs to be removed. Maybe this is sin and stench going up to God that caused the virus. We're in a time when demons are running rampant. People are licking ice cream in grocery stores and contaminating food. Animals and food are being genetically altered.
People don't love their neighbors. Maybe people need to learn compassion for those in need. Is it possible that because people exploited and attacked minorities and immigrants that they fell into their own trap instead? Take the incident with the pool. A woman called police to report a black child in the pool. Now, no one can go into pools or on beaches, for that matter. Spring break is canceled for everyone.
Is God giving back to people what they gave to others? Again, is this a wake up call to repent? To love our neighbors as Jesus taught us? One of the Beatitudes in Matthew 5 is "Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy". Are the people that didn't show mercy now reaping what they sowed? It also brings up the question, is the coronavirus a plague because of man's sins?
The coronavirus is affecting every household. If you'll remember, last year we had all the diseases in the water (red tide), problems with animals attacking people, travel problems (deaths in the Caribbean) and lots of storms. However, not everyone immediately turned to God to pray. They continued "business as usual" and kept ignoring God. If anything, the hate and racists attacks worsened.
In retrospect, if you look at the coronavirus pandemic, it's affecting every sector. It's wiped out travel, sports, gambling, the restaurant industry, schools, finance - everything. Is Father God doing something as correction? We can't say for certain. But, we know that we're coming out of this as we fast, pray and rebuke the coronavirus. We also know that God's people are victorious and will see signs from Father God soon that it will become better (see the last section on what God said about this, very good news is coming).
In the meantime, please pray for people to change their hearts. People that made themselves gods and had NO FEAR of God got HIT HARD by the coronavirus attack. There's a lot of uncertainty now and people are afraid to come out of their homes. But, God says He doesn't give us the spirit of fear but of POWER and of LOVE and a SOUND MIND. He says to repent from wicked ways and lay down idols. He also says if you have ought (offense) against any, forgive so you will be forgiven. Hence, it's a time to turn and get on our faces before God and ask for repentance.
We have to ask Father God for forgiveness for not loving our neighbors. We also have to repent and ask God to remove demons of false pride and stubbornness. We have to repent and take "self" off the throne and put God back on it. Psalm 51:7-8 states, "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice." God said in His messages "It's going to affect every wallet and purse" and He did exactly that, (again, see His messages before the coronavirus occurred). We have to repent and ask for forgiveness for grieving His spirit.
Think God's not confirming His Words? God told me a few weeks ago, "Pray for the King and Queen" and I thought, "Huh? There's nothing going..." And, then I caught myself because I was leaning on my own understanding. So, I posted online the message and asked for prayer for the King and Queen and said I didn't know what this was for but wanted to obey. I'd forgotten about it until I heard a newscaster say yesterday about Prince Charles testing positive for the coronavirus, He said, "I wonder how close his proximity was to the King and Queen?" I jumped when I remembered what God said!
Now, we can't speak FOR God to say EXACTLY what He's doing or thinking - who can know BUT God? However, look at ALL the messages He's shared in the prophetic. He said again and again how God's people are not ready. He said how we have to repent and "come away from them". He said in His most recent messages to "watch what He does" and "It's not FOR US but we need to see it."
You see, God is merciful and He's calling His people to COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM. He's saying HE'S NOT PLAYING. He's calling His Chosen Ones to obey Him and by the Holy Spirit we can hear God's voice. Father God also said pray in tongues He'll confirm the words He's speaking. I got confirmation myself when I called my mother once and she spoke word for word - every detail God said to me - but I never said anything about it to her! And, now here's the important part and what this has to do with the coronavirus.
What we didn't see with the coronavirus was how all God's people came together and prayed. There were people fasting and praying about the coronavirus. They were encouraging one another online to rebuke the coronavirus and trust God in prayer. And, they were praising the Lord that we have victory over the enemy and the coronavirus. What I'm saying ultimately is that as this plays out and we await that final "all clear", keep reading your Bible and stay encouraged.
Rebuke any false pride and pray for your enemies. Pray that they change and turn to God while there's time. Pray for this stiff-necked generation of unbelievers. Pray they rebuke ego and self and see that God through Jesus Christ is the ONLY way. There are so many who refuse to cry out to God for help when that's all God wants. That's from Psalm 51:17, "The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise." Remember, Jesus is coming back for His Bride, the Church. We have to be on one accord and the coronavirus was one occasion where God's people were crying out to Him. However, were not all praying and fasting.
One of the prophets who had a Facebook prayer to rebuke the coronavirus said that God's people are not ready. Father God has also confirmed this in His messages. We're not on one accord yet but we're getting there. God also confirmed that in His messages. Next, let's explore how we have to stay in prayer and watch during this season.
Please watch your tongue as people are on edge and ready to fight (demons). But, also watch your tongue and tone of voice because some people are so fragile and ready to give up. Speak encouraging words into their lives. I've been on the phone recently with so many operators and it's like one simple word of reassurance and they suddenly start crying.
There are so many people on the breaking point. There are so many of God's people that are hanging on by a thread. It's like "One more incident" or "One more disconnect" or "How much more can I take?" But it's not "a thread". It's a lifeline to God and as long as we hold onto Him, WE WILL NOT FAIL. God is saying, "It's okay. Quiet yourself. Come before me and rest. Come before me and eat and recover. That storm is over. That demon that was coming against you I put under your feet." God wants us to rejoice and lift up our spirits.
As an important note, please rebuke any false pride and stay on guard. There will be some who are upset over what God's done for His people. They're angry because they lost money. They're angry because they were inconvenienced so expect more griping, complaining and murmuring but don't do what you see them do.
Remember, God said, they're going to be saying "Not fair!" when they see what God does for His people (in His messages below). Be mindful to rebuke their personalities. There are also demons that are angry and running scared because we're that much closer to Jesus coming back. When you pray, say "Lord, remove me from the hands of the enemy in the name of Jesus Christ and by God's authority."
Keep speaking in tongues, praying, reading your Bibles and keep praising God. Keep lifting your brothers and sisters up. Stay inspired and do things that add value and keep your spirits up. Keep the news and TV off. Don't look at all the coronavirus news. Walk away. God is covering us in the blood of the lamb, Jesus. God has such good news in store for His people. We're praying this for you and all your family! Don't give up. God will not fail! Hallelujah! Hallelu-Yahweh!
Lastly, as I was ending my conversation with my mom, The Holy Spirit said "He is going to do something for us. It's going to feel like Santa Claus." I keep hearing, "Like Santa Claus". My mom heard in the spirit realm, "It's going to be a mighty change. More money is coming in. More souls are going to be saved, more revivals. That old time religion, watch and see. More like the Azusa Street Revival, people in the stores starting to preach." And, oh what a glorious day that will be! Glory to Your name, Lord! Hallelu-Yahweh! We rebuke the devil in the name of Jesus Christ and by God's authority!
