What a Time for the Gospel!

Coronavirus cases in the U.S. continue to skyrocket and the stock market remains volatile. Last week, the U.S. closed its borders with Canada and Mexico, the tax deadline moved from April to July, and severely-affected states ordered citizens to stay home. See our full coronavirus coverage here.

Ron Hutchcraft of Ron Hutchcraft Ministries says fear has “gone viral.” “There was an earthquake a few days ago in Utah and, like any earthquake, the damage was localized,” he says.

“In this case, we’ve got a ‘coronaquake’ going on… and it’s shaking scores of nations and lives everywhere.”

Fear vs. faith

Fear, like the coronavirus, does not respect person or status. More about that here. But believers have the antidote.

“There is a wonderful statement in Scripture that I came across just a couple of days ago from Psalm 29:11… ‘The Lord sits enthroned over the flood.’ Right now feels like a flood!” Hutchcraft says.

“Every hour there’s a flood of new information, new dangers, but the Lord sits enthroned over the flood. The Lord gives strength to His people and the Lord blesses His people with peace.”
