Its Time To Dust Off All Those Christian Bibles And Act Like Christ-Followers

Reading Time: 6 minutes

Isn’t this the fast that I have been choosing: to loose the bonds of injustice, and to untie the cords of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Isn’t it to share your bread with the hungry, and to bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover him with clothing, and not to raise yourself up from your own flesh and blood?” (Isa 58:6-11)

Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will spring up quickly; and your vindication will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will guard your back. Then you’ll call, and the LORD will answer; you’ll cry for help, and he’ll respond, ‘Here I am.’ “If you do away with the yoke among you, and pointing fingers and malicious talk; if you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the needs of afflicted souls, then your light will rise in darkness, and your night will be like noonday. 

I hear a lot of people saying things like “God never answers,” or “Where is God?” I know for myself that when I have said this kind of thing, my Bible is always closed, and has dust on it. Of course, Jesus will be silent if your Bible is closed! And you are completely transfixed on the conspiracy garbage floating around out there in internet land about Covid 19.

Please, remember, that the CDC and any other organization leading out at the forefront of covid19 are humans, just like us. Many of them are afraid too, just as we are. If in their fears, they have made mistakes, please, know what on earth you are talking about first before you start the fanatical, ant-vax baloney.

Conversely, be better aware of why they are doing it, and more respectful to those who need to choose, for now, to not get the shot. The propaganda war is roiling everyone’s guts so why should we Christians add to that by helping the so called social media platforms spread FEAR? False Evidence Appearing Real. (on both sides).

There is heavenly, resurrection power in God’s Word. When we allow ourselves to be caught up in the latest covid caper of the conspiracy theory crowds, some of which may even be in your own church, as they are definitely in mine, then the devil has you right where he loves to have you. Alone with the fear and the theories of fear-mongers, and isolated from God’s Word. As soon as he gets you there, you are cooked! And thats sure NOT where you will hear God speaking!

Why not consider turning things around and if you are already, or about to be isolated, try adding to your isolation, by isolating your heart and soul in His Word? Turn this whole covid isolation thing into a heavenly event that can serve as your way to spend more time with Jesus, with higher things, and better thoughts:

“For as the heavens are higher than earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain and snow come down from heaven, and do not return there without having watered the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to sow and bread to eat, so My word will be that goes out from My mouth. It will not return to Me in vain, but will accomplish what I intend, and will succeed in what I sent it for. (Isa 55:9-11)

If we realize this great truth, then we will realize one of the most promising truths in scripture, which concludes in the next verse, of Isa 55:12

Yes, you will go out with joy and be led forth with peace.

My brethren, let your hearts become broken and contrite. Let expressions of sympathy and love, which will not blister the tongue, flow from your lips. Let others feel that warmth which love can create in the heart, and educate the professed disciples of Christ to correct the evils that have so long existed,–selfishness, coldness, and hardheartedness. All these traits reveal the fact that Christ is not abiding in the soul:

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves in tender compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience— bearing with one another and forgiving each other, if anyone has a grievance against another. Just as the Lord pardoned you, so also you must pardon others. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfect harmony. Let the shalom of Messiah rule in your hearts—to this shalom you were surely called in one body. Also be thankful. (Col 3:12-15, TLV)

No Idle Believers.–The Bible does not acknowledge a believer who is idle, however high his profession may be. There will be employment in heaven. The redeemed state is not one of idle repose. There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God, but it is a rest found in loving service, of our neighbours, of anyone who needs our help.

For as the lifetime of a tree, so will be the days of My people, And My chosen [people] will fully enjoy [and long make use of] the work of their hands. 
They will not labour in vain, Or bear children for disaster; For they are the descendants of those blessed by the LORD, And their offspring with them. 
It shall also come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear (Isa 65:22-24, AMP)

For the people of Zion who are dwelling in Jerusalem will weep no more. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry. When He hears you, He will answer. (Isa 30:19)

Then you’ll call, and the LORD will answer; you’ll cry for help, and he’ll respond, ‘Here I am.’ “If you do away with the yoke among you, and pointing fingers and malicious talk; (Isa 58:9)

Jesus once was asked: “who is my neighbour?” And in His everlasting wisdom He basically said: “anyone who needs your help.” The big question for Christ-followers today is who can I help? How can I bless, and be a part of the solution to move us forward and into a better place? And look at what happens when we do this:

Isn’t this the fast that I have been choosing: to loose the bonds of injustice, and to untie the cords of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Isn’t it to share your bread with the hungry, and to bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover him with clothing, and not to raise yourself up from your own flesh and blood?” “Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will spring up quickly; and your vindication will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will guard your back. Then you’ll call, and the LORD will answer; you’ll cry for help, and he’ll respond, ‘Here I am.’ “If you do away with the yoke among you, and pointing fingers and malicious talk; if you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the needs of afflicted souls, then your light will rise in darkness, and your night will be like noonday. And the LORD will guide you continuously, and satisfy your soul in parched places, and they will strengthen your bones; and you’ll be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters never fail. (Isa 58:6-11)

The text promises us that WHEN we follow Christ’s pandemic policies, that “THEN shall our Light” in the clouds “break forth speedily.” Jesus has a pandemic master plan. Jesus has a plan of success for His people in all denominations. And the promise is sure because of the Creative POWER of His Word to accomplish EVERYTHING that Jesus sent it forth to do. THIS is HOW God’s people “become “ONE” and HOW the world will know that “we have been with Jesus because we are not contributing the the FEAR, rather, we have that “one mind” that the church has been known for in the past.
