LET’S LEARN SOME LESSONS FROM A PREVIOUS PANDEMIC.
In 1910 in the midst of a worldwide pandemic known as the bubonic plague, the government was offering large sums of money for anyone who could help. So many were dying and there were not enough people to remove the bodies of the dead. Of the few that were well enough, most were too fearful to enter people’s homes.
John G Lake and the plague
John G Lake found himself in this highly contagious region and he offered to help, but asked for no payment. He would go into houses where the stench of sickness hung in the air, and carried out the bodies, often having to bury them in mass graves, there were so many. But he had no fear of catching the disease.
A doctor sent for Lake and asked, “What have you been doing to protect yourself? Lake replied, “I believe that as long as I keep my soul in contact with the living God so that His Spirit is flowing into my soul and body, that no germ will ever attach itself to me, for the Spirit of God will kill it”.
Amazingly, Lake asked the doctor to experiment by taking the foam from the lungs of a dead plague victim and putting it under a microscope. The doctor did that and found masses of living germs. At Lake’s insistence, the doctor spread the deadly foam on Lake’s hand and observing the results under the microscope, he was astonished to discover that all the germs died instantly. Lake told him, “That is the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus… When a man’s spirit and body are filled with the presence of God, it oozes out of the flesh and the pores and it kills the germs.”
Coronavirus and the power of God
One hundred years later and we find ourselves in a similar situation. Has God changed? Is His power any less today than Lake experienced? Now I’m not suggesting that we all go around putting deadly germs on our hands like in Lake’s experiment, but let’s really begin to believe the Word of God and live it out by faith, and let’s not forget that God is the God of the impossible. Do not come into agreement with the Spirit of fear but with the Spirit of Life as you co-exist with Christ Jesus.
“And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.” Romans 8:11
