FIGHT THE VIRUS, OBEY THE GOVERNMENT!
When it becomes necessary, the government could stop social or any gatherings FOR THE SAFELY OF EVERYONE ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO DON'T HAVE THE FAITH LIKE SOME OF US TO BE PROTECTED FROM BEING INFECTED BY THE VIRUS.
Romans13:1 - 5.
Obey the government, for God is the one who put it there. All governments have been placed in power by God. So those who refuse to obey the laws of the land are refusing to obey God, and punishment will follow. For the authorities do not frighten people who are doing right, but they frighten those who do wrong. So do what they say, and you will get along well.
The authorities are sent by God to help you. But if you are doing something wrong, of course you should be afraid, for you will be punished. The authorities are established by God for that very purpose, to punish those who do wrong.
So you must obey the government for two reasons: to keep from being punished and to keep a clear conscience.
Government and health officials are also servants of God, sent by God to ensure our safety and well-being. The measures for people to practice social distancing or stay in isolation is not a deliberate attempt by these precious servants of God to stop God's Word and work. The government is not PERSECUTING the Church, but PROTECTING people as a way to stop the Corona Virus plague, even though it's Satan's attempt to close the Church. Obey the government and deal with Satan according to Ephesians 6:12-18.
Jesus walk on water by faith and Peter also did but sank for loss of faith. Others couldn't for lack of faith, but Jesus Christ didn't condemn them. Until their faith become strong, they would sink. Will everyone at the gathering have strong enough faith not to be infected? No. So, we must consider such people who could get infected and get others in trouble. If JUST gathering in Church destroys the Corona Virus, then it should be gone by now. BUT WE KNOW THAT THE EFFECTUAL, FERVENT PRAYER AND FAITH OF THE RIGHTEOUS WORKS GREAT MIRACLES!
The officials are helping both the weak and strong, believers and unbelievers, educated and uneducated. This is a society. Please see it from their perspective. One way to be Christlike is to be obedient, good, patriotic citizens. If the government is against social or any gatherings, and is recommending social distancing and isolation FOR A WHILE, please be a good example AS A CHRISTIAN AND MINISTER OF GOD. The government officials who are also servants of God are doing their job, let them obey God too.
Spend more time in prayer and the Word of God whether ALONE or with your FAMILY at home. Note also that online ministry still has untapped, limitless potential. And both the print and electronic media - radio, television, telephone, magazine, books etc. - still have a huge untapped potential the body of Christ must research on and explore. Use every means to keep communicating, ministering, fellowshipping and praying through whatever circumstances. The Church shall return again with greater glory, power, anointing, wisdom, creativity and more gifts of the Holy Spirit and ministries. Hallelujah!
