Wuhan Coronavirus: Defeating it by Faith in Jesus Christ
The Wuhan Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has the world trembling in fear. It spread out of Wuhan, China, and has since spread into other continents, even in the city I live, Singapore.
In the Bible, the evil spirit responsible for worldwide plagues like these is called "Death". It is described by the apostle John in the Book of Revelation to be one riding on a pale horse. Death was given the authority to kill through earthquakes, wars, famine, plagues and wild animals.
"When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see!” And behold, a pale horse, and he who sat on it, his name was Death. Hades followed with him. Authority over one fourth of the earth, to kill with the sword, with famine, with death, and by the wild animals of the earth was given to him.”" (Revelation 6:1-8 WEB)
With something as vile and widespread as the Wuhan Coronavirus, I believe that Death is the culprit behind it.
It is believed that the coronavirus spread to humans because of consuming wild animals, specifically bats in fruit bat soup from the Wuhan market.
See how both plagues and wild animals are involved through Death's attack?
The coronavirus spreads mainly through ingesting the saliva of an infected animal or person. The incubation period ranges from 2-14 days.
Besides applying practical wisdom like washing your hands often, using hand sanitizers, wearing a disposable face mask, avoiding crowded areas and taking vitamin C supplements to boost your immunity, what else can a child of God do?
