When events like the coronavirus take place, one of the first things people want to do is attribute it to God. Some call it an act of God and others say it’s the wrath of God. Neither are correct. God’s not involved.

Long ago Adam, who represented mankind, gave his authority in the earth to Satan after obeying him in the Garden of Eden. Since the fall of mankind, Satan has ruled the earth. The bible calls him the prince of this world (John 12:31). Looking at the characteristics of Satan, we see he wants to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). Based on this, God’s not involved with anything associated with death, disease, or destruction in the earth. People want to blame God, but, it’s Satan.

Jesus’ sacrifice took the power out of Satan’s hands and gave it to us. As believers, we have the privilege to get God involved in our affairs and the affairs of the world. If we see something that’s not lining up with God’s Word, we can use our God-given authority to change that situation. We have power over Satan, power in our words, and victory through Jesus in any situation.

Instead of allowing God to take the blame, let people know God’s not involved, but it’s Satanic forces that need to be removed by born-again believers.

Ezekiel 18:32 For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Lord GOD; so turn, and live.”
