What Did God Say Before Covid-19

Often the Lord prepares us for what lies ahead – He does nothing unless He reveals His secrets to His servants the prophets (Amos 3:7).

Marelize shares her testimony of how God, unknowingly to her, prepared her for the present pandemic, and talks about the importance of keeping a journal of what God is saying. She also looks at prophecies that were released last year about the current time that we are in.

The Government on His Shoulders

In this time of the Corona Virus lockdown, governments are under pressure to make the right decisions for its people. Marelize gives guidelines on how to pray for your government, by using Isaiah 9, looking at God’s view of governance, and how God revealed Himself to a nation in distress.

Praying for Your President

In the current time of lock down because of the Corona Virus, leaders of countries are challenged to give direction. Marelize shares examples from the Bible on how God uses leaders of countries to bring the fulfillment of His plan, and how the Enemy will try to intercept God’s plans, to cause a different outcome. It is therefore crucial to pray for them at this time. She closes the program by praying for South Africa’s President Ramaphosa.

Lamb of God, Lion of Judah

In the book of Revelations, Jesus is portrayed as the Lam of God, but also as the Lion of Judah. In the previous radio session, Hear the Lion Roars, Marelize shared God’s prophetic word, through the characteristics of the lion. In this session she shares a prophetic word of encouragement for this time of lockdown, through the unique characteristics of a lamb, and compares it to that of the lion.

Hear the Lion Roars

The lion uses different roaring sounds depending on what he wants to communicate, like the roar to assure his pride of his protection, or the roar when he is gets ready to fight to defend his own, or the roaring sound when he calls back his wayward sons and daughters. These are all biblical examples of when God roars as the lion.

Marelize uses this, to give prophetic word of His roaring sounds at this point in time, especially His roar of calling back His prodigal sons and daughters, before Jesus, the Lion of Judah, comes back, to call us home for the marriage supper of the Lamb.

The Atmosphere Is Changing

While being in a period of lockdown to curb the spread of the Corona Virus, people and churches have used the most innovative ways to bring the message of Passover and Easter across to the world this past weekend. This has impacted the spiritual atmosphere over nations, amidst the impact of fear because of the rapid spread of the virus. Marelize gives examples of changed spiritual atmospheres in the Bible, how it was conducive for the fulfilment of God’s plan, and how we can be instrumental in the changing of the spiritual atmosphere to prepare our environment for God’s promised revival.

The King Is Coming and the Enemy Is Furious

Being in the challenging season of the Corona Virus lockdown, while we are in the period between Palm Sunday and Easter, IT IS TIME to remind ourselves that King Jesus is coming, and that the Enemy, knowing that his time is short, will be out to destroy God’s plans for individuals and nations, before Jesus’ second coming. Marelize uses the Biblical example of when king Solomon’s brother was crowned as king, just before King Solomon’s God-appointed crowning, as an example of how the Enemy will try to destroy God’s plans.

God’s Breath in Our Lungs

Breathing plays a significant role in Corona Virus infected patients. God breathed His breath into Adam’s lungs and since then we have been breathing His life-giving breath.

Marelize shares about the inhaling and exhaling of our physical breath, but also about our spiritual breath, the Holy Spirit, and also the Word of God which is God-breathed.

It is a significant time in history, in which Christians have an open heaven to pray for those who are suffering because of the Corona Virus, that they will turn to God. IT IS TIME for Christians to breath in God’s Word, to listen to the Holy Spirit’s promptings, and to do accordingly, at this time of lockdown for most countries.

God’s Protection over Our Physical Bodies

At present the Corona Virus is spreading rapidly. Psalm 91 gives different ways in which God wants to protect you, that you can visualize to help you to stay strong when times get tough. Marelize also shares on the meaning of YHWH Rapha, the God who heals, and about getting perspective on the number of your days on earth.

God’s Strength Amidst an Anxious World

At a time in which the corona virus is spreading rapidly, we can become pillars and influencers, because of God’s strength at work in us. Trees are often used in the Bible to describe God’s strength. Marelize talks about the terebinth, the oak, the sandalwood, the cedar and the cypress, as examples of the different elements of His strength.
