The most up-to-date headline regarding COVID-19 is more than 2,000 years old.
While we’re keeping current on precautionary measures and government-ordered quarantines, having just celebrated Resurrection Sunday, we cannot forget one thing: Resurrection Power Defeats COVID-19!
Leading up to the most important day in the history of the world, Jesus celebrated Passover with His disciples. It’s critical to remember the original Passover during a time when our nation is facing a similar threat.
Pharaoh had refused to let God’s people go time and again, despite nine resulting plagues. And now, the final plague was coming upon the Egyptians. But the plague was not meant to touch God’s chosen people. So He instructed them to “take some of the blood [of a sacrificed lamb] and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses” (Exodus 12:7, NIV).
“The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you” (verse 13, NIV).
That’s a message for you today. No destructive plague (including the coronavirus) will touch you when you apply the blood of Jesus—in faith.
The parallel of the current situation surrounding COVID-19 and Passover is not a minor one, but one that was the subject of prophecies earlier this year.
In September 2019, this prophecy regarding the events we are facing today came through the prophet Chuck Pierce: “The nations will come to turmoil until Passover.”
Then, again, in January 2020, Chuck Pierce prophesied: “There will be a massive, plague-like invasion that will test us until Passover.” He also emphasized the importance of focusing on the word Passover and what it means to us as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.
In March of 2020, Kenneth Copeland also received a word from the Lord: This disease called COVID-19 will be over much sooner than you think…. Give Me all the glory, saith the Spirit of Grace.”
Resurrection Power Defeats COVID-19
You may be asking, If that’s true, then why is this happening? Why are people dying?
Terrible events, natural disasters and catastrophes can be caused by many things. These include bad choices (Deuteronomy 30:19), the sinful nature of men (James 4:1-10), the devil and demonic forces (John 10:10), and the forces of nature that have been corrupted because sin entered the earth (Matthew 24:7). James 4:1-10 tells us that violence, wars, and fighting come from the hearts of men. Many people choose to reject the counsel of God, and the results of those actions bring about death.
No matter the cause, resurrection power defeats COVID-19 in the lives of those who believe on the Lord Jesus and receive, by faith, redemption from the curse (which included the coronavirus from the beginning). Think of that. Jesus took the coronavirus on Himself 2,000 years ago—long before we ever knew it would exist. He knew it would. And He took it for us.
Resurrection Power Secured Our Healing
Isaiah 53:5 tells us that Jesus’ sacrifice covered every area of man’s existence—sins, distress, worry and fear, as well as sickness and disease. That means Jesus Christ bore every possible disease that existed or ever would exist on that cross. He shed His blood so we could be healed.
JESUS DEFEATED COVID-19 AT THE CROSS.
It’s already done. The virus exists—and the devil is using it—but resurrection power always wins when we know what to do with it. All you have to do is believe it and appropriate the blood of Jesus over your life.
Resurrection Power Secured Our Protection
Exodus 12:13 says, “When I see the blood, I will pass over you.”
We don’t have to physically apply blood to our homes anymore to receive protection. Today, we apply the blood of Jesus to the doorposts of our lives by FAITH. Faith in the blood, faith in the promises of God, faith in the Giver of protection.
When Jesus walked the earth, laying hands on the sick, He never said, “The power of God has made you well,” or, “The will of God has made you well.” No. Again and again, He said, “Your faith has made you whole.”
The power of God and the will of God to heal is ALWAYS there. Faith is what releases the power.
The resurrection power of the blood of the Lamb is inexhaustible. It is an unlimited supply. When we apply the blood of Jesus, we secure protection from every part of the curse that tries to take residence, including COVID-19.
When you speak the Name of Jesus in the face of sickness, disease or danger, the blood of the Lamb is behind it, and you are protected!
Resurrection Power Gave You Authority Over the Devil
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.” –Revelation 12:11 (KJV)
The devil knows, maybe even better than you do, the power and authority given to you by the blood of Jesus. He will try to keep you distracted, send media reports or ideas to confuse you, and plant seeds of doubt to keep you from operating in what belongs to you.
Well, his day is done. You are about to put him right under your feet where he belongs!
Of course, the curse is still out there. We’ve seen that with the recent events surrounding COVID-19. You can see it all around you, but now you have a choice—to use the blood or not. You have authority over every part of the curse in the Name of Jesus, and by the blood of Jesus, you can stand against it.
Every day you have the right to exercise that authority by pleading what the blood of Jesus has done for you. Refuse to give the enemy even one small inch of territory. Satan is a defeated foe, and through the precious blood of Jesus, resurrection power defeats COVID-19!
Let’s take the time this week, remembering our recent celebration of the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, to remember everything He secured for us. Honor Him by applying resurrection power to every area of your life and taking your protection and healing by faith. Above all, remember—resurrection power defeats COVID-19!
