Fear of Coronavirus: What should the Christians do?

Coronavirus is an element of reminder to let you know that the control of the world is not in the hands of man or any form of technology! The fear of coronavirus is presently all over the world. The scientists are perplexed, the economic experts are fidgeting and the doctors are dying. Should the Christians get collapsed as well? No!!

I received three messages from the LORD in the beginning of year 2020. And my heart stroked when I heard the description given to COVID-19 by the US President: “Coronavirus is blindsided….”

The LORD told me that there would be a high incidence of blindfoldedness in the world this year.

I didn’t bother to ask God questions, but I told people close to me to be at alert. Obviously, the world is currently going through a dark time!  

Today’s message will give an update of coronavirus and how the Christians can be safe from this disease.

Current Pandemic brings Fear of Coronavirus

The outbreak of this virus was thought to have originated in a seafood market where wildlife was sold illegally in China’s Wuhan city around December 2019.

The global report as at 6th April 2022 shows that 494,286,073 cases of Coronavirus exist in 225 countries across the world, 6,184,299 deaths and 429,921,167 lucky people recovered from the disease.

The scientific code for coronavirus is COVID-19. covid19

Symptoms of COVID-19

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a new strain that was discovered in 2019 and has not been previously identified in humans.

Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people. 

Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. 

Symptoms can show up within 2 to 14 days of contact to the viral infection while some infected people show no symptomatic signs (they are called carriers).

Preventive Measures to Avoid Contacting Coronavirus

Despite the fear of coronavirus, there is currently no vaccine or drug to cure it. And it is thought to spread through the droplets of an infected person. The following preventive measures are essential for you:

1. Wash your hands regularly with soap and water or rub with hand sanitiser.

2. Avoid close contact with the sick.

3. If your community is affected then keep a distance of 2 meters from the next person.

4. Disinfect touched surfaces such as; tables, doorknobs, toilets, and faucets frequently.

5. Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze and dispose the used tissue immediately.

Effect of Coronavirus on the World Economy

The fear of coronavirus is having a profound and serious impact on the global economy and has sent policymakers looking for ways to respond.

The American economy is facing a plunge into uncharted waters. Economists say there is little doubt that the nation is headed into a recession because of the coronavirus pandemic, with businesses shutting down and Americans being shut in. But it is harder to foresee the bottom and how long it will take to climb back.

Globally, the coronavirus shock is severe even compared to the Great Financial Crisis in 2007–08.

UNCTAD, the UN trade agency, warned of a slowdown of global growth to under 2% this year, effectively wiping $1 trillion off the value of the world economy.

Globally, the airline industry is set to lose $29bn, according to the International Air Transportation Association.

The virus could affect up to 42 percent of China’s economy, according to Standard Chartered.

What should Christians do during this dark time?

Christians must not be afraid of this virus because the covenant of God is available for us. “A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.” (Psalm 91:7)

The best act for you in this dark time is to study the significance of Covid-19!

1. The pandemic nature should be a reminder to you that certainly this world would have an end-time as prophesied by our Lord Jesus Christ.

“For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.” (Matthew 24:7)

2. Its uncontrollable widespread across the world shows that very soon people that put their trust in the world leaders and things of this world shall lose forever.

So, always put your trust in the LORD.

As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.” (2 Samuel 22:31)  

3. Covid-19 is a test of faith. How many Christians are currently peaceful and what number had fear…? Jesus asked in Luke chapter 18 verse 8:

“…Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”

4. The fear of coronavirus substantiates the saying: “Cleanliness is next to godliness.” The LORD is clean and He wants us to be clean as well. This virus had forced many to be hygienic

“And they shall teach My people the difference between the holy and the unholy, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.” (Ezekiel 44:23)

5. The solutions of the world leaders to curtail the viral spread include; travel ban and lockdown of territories. It’s a terrible situation for the citizens and I wonder how it would be for those that won’t be raptured during the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Don’t fear the virus, but fear the terrible occurrence that would take place when the elect is raptured. This pandemic is a call to check your stand in Christ.

Therefore, let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.” (1Corinthians 10:12)  


The fear of coronavirus is everywhere because its more than the usual flu, it kills people and affects the world economy and freedom! Covid-19 is a new dreadful virus that caught all the world experts unaware and spreading across the world.

Christians are not expected to be scared of this virus, but to be sensitive to the indirect messages of the pandemic. “For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.” (Matthew 16:27)

You will be a victor during this hard time in Jesus name.

  1. I am glad you are blessed Frank. This lock-down is a sign to the wise Christians. It is a prototype of what would happen to the Christians that would miss the rapture. Just as someone can’t go out for shopping without a nose-mask now, so after the rapture, the people behind cannot shop without the Mark of the Beast… Coronavirus is a signal of end-time to our generation. Let’s steadfast in the Lord’s Righteousness. GOD is Real and End-time Judgement is Real!!

  2. I am blessed by this post, having been studying the book of Revelation with my family since the lock down. This message buttresses my resolve. Thanks for sharing
