COVID-19 UPDATE
3-16-2020 PM


Praise God! I’ve been praying for you today, and I will continue to send you e-mails and phone calls to update you and communicate to you the best I can.
 
  1. I want to start out by reminding you that WE ARE THE CHURCH! We’re not going into holes and hiding. We’re not going silent. We’re not going to disassemble, and we’re surely never going away!
     
  2. The best thing we can do for our family, neighbors, friends, and the people we work with is to speak LIFE. We are faith people. Faith people don’t deny the warfare we’re in. We just talk big about our God, not about our battle.
     
  3. America has faced enemies much greater than this by far. Why this is being so overmanaged (in my opinion) and creating such phobia, I don’t get!
     
  4. I do get it spiritually. The enemy wants to crush America, destroy our finances, belittle our president, alter the elections, and leave us without church, businesses, etc.
     
  5. I am doing my best to sort out what we’re hearing and how fast it changes. Remember, this is a moving target. For example, even today I received information from very reliable sources, such as the Pentagon, the military, the state police, and some of our highest state and local officials. It’s amazing how much the same information varied from source to source and how fast it changes!
     
  6. Realize that we are dealing with local, state, and federal government. We are doing our best to decipher between all of them and what they are actually doing. For example, the last official word from our governor “was” that gatherings must be limited to 250 people or less, and then it changed again this evening to 50 people or less. A local city in our state is reporting 25 or less, and the White House has “advised” people not to gather in groups of more than 10. (Please understand this is “advice” and NOT an executive order of the president at this writing.)
     
  7. We are people of faith. I keep telling you this, and I will keep telling you this. Covid-19 is NOT the Lord of America. Jesus Christ is, and He will cover this as long as His people pray.
     
  8. We know that in the end we win, but we have quite a battle on our hands. For example, if we do not continue to find a way to give and tithe, we literally could fall to the ground financially, especially churches smaller than us. The devil would love to use this to crush us, but I say he will not.
     
  9. I want to encourage you to make sure you keep your seed in the ground—not just to help our church stay strong but to keep yourself and your family and business protected. We must keep our giving very strong, especially now because it’s one of our greatest weapons against the enemy and against the attack of satan. Tithing is mandatory. We cannot start submitting to the curse when something else is aleady trying to curse us. Ecclesiates 11 says: 

    “Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth. If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be. He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap. As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all. In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.”

    Find a way to give and tithe:
    • You can give by e-check or credit/debit card. Text LWCGIVE to 77977 to get started.
    • Call it in by debit card.
    • Use the Donate tab on our website.
    • Drop it off at the church office.
    • Mail it.
       
  10. You are hearing a lot of rumors. A lot of people are hearing other sources say things like, “I think...,” “I heard...,” “They’re telling me...,” etc. But we do not want to live by any of that. Go back and read my “I Predict” 2020 & Beyond and read or listen to my messages warning that a dark cloud is coming. And how many times have I told you to prepare an emergency kit and have things ready, no matter what comes our way?

PSALM 91 CONFESSION

 
I have declared this over our congregation for decades, every time I minister the Word. It has become the official benediction of Living Word International Church. Begin to confess this at home!
 
“I confess Psalm 91 over you, right now, in Jesus’ name.  
 
I say that no evil shall befall you, and no plague shall come nigh your dwelling, for He has given His angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways. 
 
I say that no drugged or drunk driver, no rapist, no burglar, no murderer, no suicide, no terrorist, no evil spirit, no evil person, no sickness, no disease, no fire, no flood, no crash… none of these evil things shall come near you or your immediate loved ones.
 
You are going to live in great peace, great joy, great prosperity, great safety, and be a powerful witness for Him, in Jesus’ name!”
 
 
I am praying for your health and protection, according to the following verses and many others:
 
LUKE 10:19
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
 
MARK 16:15
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
 
MARK 16:16
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
 
MARK 16:17
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues...
 
MARK 16:18
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
 
EXODUS 23:25
And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.
 
2 CHRONICLES 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
