A Special Love Epistle to you and your family. Happy New Month!

How are you and your beautiful family doing? I am using this medium and moment to check up on you and your household, in this trying time. I hope you’re safe wherever you are. It’s a phase and it will surely pass. Don’t panic but conquer fear. Don’t Wail but wait patiently for the victory.

I pray that God will protect and keep you and your household safe through this time and beyond in Jesus’ name. Be reminded that Plagues ain’t new on earth. Amidst the cycle of plagues, the Lord has always exempted His own against ALL ODDS. It’s not time to Fear but Time to manifest Faith. 

However, despite the fact that our hope of victory over this pandemic is not in the listed precautions but in Christ Jesus who is our victory, protector and our shield. 
Nevertheless it is not an act of no faith or less faith to adhere to the precautions but a way to fulfill all righteousness. Therefore endeavor to stay safe, wise and disciplined while this disturbing season lasts.

Try to take precautions, where and when necessary. In other words, consciously adhere to the outlined measures already advised by relevant authorities, such as:- 

The constant washing of hands with soap and running water or using  hand sanitizer.

Try as much as you can, not to touch your eyes, nose, ear or mouth with an unwashed / sanitized hand.

Maintaining a social (not Spiritual) distancing for the time being.

Drinking of hot water or fluids all the time.

Don’t attend large group meetings or functions. No church service for now. That does not make you a Sinner because worship doesn’t necessarily need to be done in a house called church. We as the believers are the church not the worship place or building – 1 Cor 3,9 & 16, 1 Cor 6:19-20. Worship with your family and enjoy your worship knowing that where two or three people father God is in the midst of them. – Mathew 18:20. – And many others that you know. 

Above all, continue to keep faith in God, and cease not to watch and Pray, as God remains the only and best solution to this deadly scourge (Covid-19). I will also like to remind you not to believe some of the false doctrines that are flying around. That God brought this pandemic to destroy sinners, or the nation or the world or do whatever is not true.

Mathew 5: 37-38. John 3:16, John 10:10, James 1:17, 1 John 2:1-2, 1 John 4:8:17-21, Heb 9:17, 1 Thess 1:6-10. All of them explained to us how much God is loving because of his grace and that he will not judge or punish any here on earth that is called grace – 2 Peter 3:9, Rev 22:11-13. 

If every good thing and perfect things according to James 1:17 and John 10:10 come from God then it will be a character assassination on God for anyone to claim that He is behind this pandemic or any of his kind that has ever affected any nation or people in the time past or in the future to come.

We do not need any repentance because we are not the one that sinned and God is not angry with any or nation because he does not want the death of a Sinner but to be saved – 2 Peter 3:9. 1 John 2:1-2. I said in the future to come because either we like it or not this has just started. Much more difficult times like this are coming soon or sooner. This is not a curse or evil prophecy. If you understand scriptures like me you must have read in Mathew 24: 1- end that there are signs that will mark the coming of Jesus Christ the second time. 

Among them are: Rumors of war, nation and kingdom rising against each other, false or fake prophets and pestilence etc. All of them one way or the other have been part of our days in the present world that we live. Pestilence is not new only that this CoronaVirus is alarming than others like Ebola and many of their kind. 

This is not from God it is purely the unleashing of Vernon from Satan to the earth knowing fully that his time is up. Jesus is coming to harvest the earth. But here is the consolation. For us who are the beloved of God we are exempted from them all. See John 16:33, 1 Peter 3:13, Col 3:3, Col 2:10, 1 John 5:4-5.Ps 3:3

What is God expecting us to do at this kind of a time. To believe. What you don’t believe you don’t become – Believe you are exempted – John 16:33. Believe your life is hid in Christ – Col 3:3, 1 Cor 15:57, 2 Cor 2:14, Col 2:10-15. Mark 9:23, 11:24.Do not fear! – Fear is an absence of faith or the defeat of faith. Do not be caught up with fear. Fear is very good at making its victim succumb to whatever the victim fears. Embrace faith, that is your weapon of victory in this period – 1 John 5:4, 2 Tim 1:7, Romans 8:14-15

Speak your faith. Any faith you don’t speak; you can never see it’s manifestation. Until you speak it you don’t pick it. Ok! Having faith is not the victory but speaking it brings the victory – 2 Cor 4:13, Mark 11:22-24,Luke 21:15, Prov 18: 21. 

Therefore, whether the devil likes it or not, as the Lord lives, the God who called me and anointed me as a minister of his gospel, this particular health challenge that the entire world is faced with now will undoubtedly end in great Praise of our great God, in the mighty name of Jesus. I speak by faith that the spread will stop right away and there will be an end to the pandemic as the people of God are free to go back to their normal life style, ministry, business and work in Jesus’ name. 

Stay blessed and strong. And may the good Lord continue to keep you, and cause His face to shine upon you and all that are yours in Jesus’ name. I welcome you to the month of amazing victory over all troubles or challenges in Jesus name. Happy New Month; Happy New Quarter.

I am waiting to hear your amazing victory testimony in Jesus name. Amen
I remain yours, affectionately,Pastor Bakare Steve. Light Arena Ministry
