God uses good, evil for His purpose

The SHEPHERD | Danilo Q. Junco

Is coronavirus disease or Covid19 man-made?


This deadly virus has created various opinions saying that this is the handiwork of the globalists in preparation for the emergence of the antichrist, others said that this is God’s judgment on all the nations of the world while some have to put the blame on China.


The United States’ scientists pointed out that the dreaded virus has come from Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China in December 2019, while the Chinese scientists believe that the plague has started in Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market also in Wuhan, China where food of variety of animals are sold, including bats which are common Covid19 carriers.


Whether the variety of opinions or the conjectures of the US or Chinese scientists is true, one certain thing is sure that it has originated from Wuhan, China and it spreads like a wildfire all over the world that now has killed more than 3 million people worldwide and infected over 146 million and here in our country over 1 million infected and deaths more than 17,000.


In fact, this dreaded plague continues to wreak havoc worldwide causing the economies to stand still, unemployment, closure of business establishments, among others and people are in jittery as to what happens next.


The religious people have called their gods to stop this dreaded pandemic and even the genuine intercessors that God of the Bible will intervene but still it has no letup to destroy the lives of the people.


Why is this so? Why God of the Bible, who is the true God, the creator of the heavens and the earth and all the things thereof visible or invisible, spiritual or earthly and so forth, does not intervene to spare the lives of the peoples?


There are ample examples in the Bible that God has tolerated the good and the evil things to happen in the lives of an individual or in a nation to accomplish His purpose.


For all you know that judgment will either come from God or from Satan. In Ancient times, God’s judgment was retributory but when His Begotten Son Jesus Christ came, God’s grace abounds.


Meaning it was no longer retributory but restoration that His people might amend their ways and would return to Him and even to those unbelievers.
But Satan’s judgment is destructive as he has no other mission here on earth but to steal, kill and destroy in Hell.


Take the case of the Kingdom of Judah during the time of the last four kings namely Jehoahaz, Jehoiakim, Jehoiachin, and Zedekiah in 609 B.C. to 586 B.C. that lasted for 25 years.


God has used Prophet Jeremiah to warn these kings, priests and other prophets and the people to amend their ways and repent of all their sins from idolatry, offering their eldest children to god Molech, among other sins.


But the leaders of Judah and the people did not take heed of the warnings, then God told Jeremiah not to intercede for them anymore as His judgment would be released to these people by using King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon to punish them.


But to those Israelites who would surrender to King Nebuchadnezzar and be exiled to Babylon would be spared and after 70 years they could go back to Israel.


God still showed His mercy to the remnants of the Jews as not all of them would be annihilated and indeed it came through when King Cyrus of the Medo-Persia, who toppled down Babylon based on God’s judgment of the empire, ordered the Jews to return in Israel in 538 B.C.


Those Jews who disobeyed God were killed by the swords, by famine, and by plague and others were exiled to Babylon but the poor had remained in Israel.


The lesson we have learned from this example that God is so merciful and He is always ready to forgive those people who amend their ways or repent from all their sins and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.


But still the remnant Jews still have to wait for 70 years of their captivity in Babylon as decreed by God before they could go back to Israel and in the same way God has to accomplish His purpose for this dreaded Covid 19 before He will stop it.
