Most Christians have heard of Rev. David Wilkerson the founder of the world famous Drug Rehabilitation program called Teen Challenge, and the author of the best selling book “The Cross & the Switchblade”.

He pioneered a local church at Times Square in New York and prophesied in 1986 that there would come a “plague” that would impact the whole world, he also mentioned New York specifically. He said the “plague” would cause prayerless Christians to start praying and reading their Bibles, and the end  result would be a THIRD AWAKENING.

These sort of prophesies don’t usually  impress me much, but its accuracy is beyond dispute. Sadly, I despise even more Christians going around “binding the devil” and totally blaming him for every bad thing happening in the world.

Let us not forget that only Jesus has the keys of death and hell Rev:1:18 NKJV am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death

I believe with all my heart THAT OUR GOD IS IN COMPLETE CONTROL,and nothing happens in this world without God’s permission. Let us not forget the devil could not touch Job without God’s permission. Our God has NOT been taken by surprise in any way in relation to the Novid-19 virus.

We all know Romans 8:28 NKJV And we know that ALL things work together FOR GOOD to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

We don’t specifically know  what God’s purpose is and why this virus is running rampant through the world, but as David Wilkerson prophesied, we can sure pray that PRAYERLESS CHRISTIANS WILL START PRAYING AND READING THEIR BIBLE. 

May it be worth considering as we continue our Lenten Journey TO SPOTLIGHT THE MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, and pray and ask”is there areas in our lives that need to be changed or adjusted we that we personally conform more and more into the image of the Lord Jesus Christ”? Let us ask the Holy Spirit to search our hearts and show us if there are areas in our lives that we need to repent of and change.

Without being judgemental, let us pray for the Body of Christ, that every believer will see that God wants to bring about GOOD in every Believer’s life through this virus.

Let us pray for the lost, even though they will not pray to a God they cannot see, but will hide in their homes from a virus that they cannot see, that they will be convicted of their need of a Saviour, and that their blinded eyes will be opened and they will see Jesus in all His glory.

It is only the Holy Spirit can bring about the change that needs to take place Jesus tells us in John 16:8 NKJV when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

David Wilkerson prophesied the result would be a third awakening, do you long to see spiritual revival, a massive ingathering of souls to Jesus??? I sure do, if this prophecy is correct let us co-operate in every way and do our part to see end time revival amen
