I was reading a COVID update from a local medical specialist this weekend and it talked about the mutated strain that we are now seeing of the COVID 19 virus. This update from Dr. Martin Dubravec of Allergy and Asthma Specialist of Cadillac 1/8/2021 stated the following:
“Virus and bacteria tend to mutate (change over time) in order to evade death by a person’s immune system or to avoid death from an antibiotic/antiviral medication. As they mutate, viruses tend to become more contagious but less deadly. Viruses are parasites. Therefore, in order to survive, they need a host. If they kill their host, this death can lead to extinction of the virus as the virus loses a place in which to live”
It was early this morning while I laid in bed that God was speaking to me. I felt so strongly in my spirit that He was reminding me that the virus we are and have for centuries been battling is nothing new. In fact this virus has been around for a VERY long time! Since creation! This virus originated in the Garden in the form of the subtle serpent who convinced Eve that God had forbid them to eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil because He didn’t want them to experience their eyes fully opened and them to be like Him. It was the first lie sown and planted in the minds of His people. Now I want to be clear that the virus I am referencing to is a spiritual virus and battle. The perpetrator behind this virus is Satan. John 10:10 clearly explains that his purpose is to steal and kill and destroy.
So how has this virus continued to exist and sow lies into the minds of generations after Adam and Eve? Simple, it continued to mutate and morph. It continued to very subtly whisper “it is okay”, “Yes it is wrong, but it is okay”, “it isn’t a huge sin”, and on and on it goes. Remember a virus is a parasite and needs a host, a place to live. When the host it invaded starts to seek help and healing from the lies it is being told the virus starts to panic and then begins to morph and twist the hosts thinking in order to continue to have a secured place in which to occupy.
As God spoke with me this morning He really impressed upon me that this mutating process is successful many times as it makes the host double minded. James 1:8 says “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”
Make no mistake the devil is largely at work. But you know what? God is still also very much at work in His chosen people. His temple! I believe God is speaking more to His people now than ever before and therefore we are seeing increased activity by Satan. He is worried, as he should be, as God’s people have the tools and resources and power to know, expose and reveal the truth. The devil may seem to be raging in today’s society but make no mistake he is trembling in His boots.
So many lines are blurring in our society. We are seeing extreme accommodations being sought in order to be politically correct. I mean for goodness sake when someone feels the need to follow an “Amen” by A-woman that is double mindedness at its best. We leave our longstanding convictions and beliefs because we don’t care for the personality of a person. We so easily cast our morals aside because it is our “patriotic duty”. My friends this spiritual parasite is mutating as it knows if it can morph the hosts thinking it can continue to exist and thrive.
2 Corinthians 6: 14 NLT “How can light live with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil.” Light and darkness CANNOT exist together. Light drowns out darkness, nothing can stop that. There is no harmony between Christ and the devil. Christ is light, and the devil is darkness. And light always wins! Just in case you needed a reminder.
Call to action: Believers it is time to boost our spiritual immune system. Let’s show this virus that it can mutate, and morph but that our minds and hearts remain focused on Christ and it will not survive. Let’s put this spiritual virus on notice! Serve it it’s eviction notice! Kick it out! The devil will always seek hosts. But let him know when he comes knocking at our doors that He is NOT welcome. Let our houses be so full of light that when he strolls by and sees the radiance coming from our residence that he doesn’t even attempt access to us or our families.
