There is a plague upon this world in these the last days before Jesus comes. It is but one of many horrible things soon to occur for we are in the last days preceding the glorious rapture of the church, and the following judgment we call the tribulation on the unsaved that remain here on earth.  

Why should we, as Christians panic, we should be rejoicing that we are so close tp seeing Jesus and getting our new incorruptible bodies, going to heaven.  Sinners, those without Jesus and His merciful forgiveness of sin should be the ones concerned.

We know that the end times are times we can rejoice in, enjoy the revival of sinners realizing they need our SAVIOR. We have a healing Jesus.

Healing is all unmerited favor.  It is all from the GRACE of God, and none is earned.   We have discussed much on the need to repent, cleanse our inner being, etc. but this is not a work to earn healing.  The plan is to make ourselves able to receive the healing grace from God.  He does the work, not we.  We watch Him work, watch Him cleanse us, and  we are in the healing work, even in those beginning moments of the last days crisis. Jesus is the Great Physician.  A physical healing may come as we progress in catharsis, or the gift of faith may come.  Either way, it is the grace of God by which we receive the healings. 

This grace is a mystery.
Revelation 10:7
 "But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He hath declared unto His servants, the prophets."

What is the "Mystery of God"???
The "mystery of God" that is referred to is the "dispensation of grace." Look at the passages that mention it elsewhere in the Bible.

I Timothy 3:16

Romans 16:25-26

Ephesians 6:19
"And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel..."
Colossians 1:26-27
"Even the mystery which hath been hid from the ages and from generation, but now is made manifest to His saints. To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the Hope of glory..."

Compare also Romans 11:25:
“For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.”

Ephesians 1:5-10:
“Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ unto Himself... In Whom we have the redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace ... Having made known unto us the mystery of His will... that in the dispensation of the fullness of times, He might gather together in one, all things in Christ.”

I Corinthians 15:51:
“Behold, I show you a mystery, we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed.”

So--after this time of God's judgment, no one will be saved to become part of the "saints" for the ‘mystery of God is finished’. This means that the end of the day of grace is about to come, because all the saints will then be in heaven.

We have not fathomed the ‘grace of God’.   Mankind has no possible way to understand, how God can forgive the greatest of sins, and sinners, so wonderfully.  It is a mystery, in the past, now, and in the future, for we cannot humanly understand it. 

Even the angels marvel as they see God pour out this mystery on those with sins abundant, and make such people to be children of God, joint heirs with Christ, and have no works that make them deserving of such.

I John 3:1
 “Behold, what manner of love, the Father hath bestowed on us, that we should be called the ‘sons of God’...”

Grace is unmerited favor, undeserved, free, and manifest through Jesus to mankind who accept Him.
“Grace” is from the Greek word ‘charis’, meaning ‘a favor, freely done, without claim or expectation of return or repayment.’  We cannot ever repay God what we owe Him for His gift of salvation to us. Never.  Your good works after salvation do not repay, do not reimburse God for what He has given you in the ‘grace’ bestowed.  We cannot earn by our works, by our prayers, by our ‘seed offerings’ any merit deserving of healing. Too many feel God owes them, that they have repaid God for His grace, via offerings, deeds, or change of nature.   NO!!!!  No one has ever repaid God sufficiently, or even nearly sufficiently.

This GRACE  will take us through all these beginnings of sorrows.

Titus 3:4-5
“But after that, the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy, He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and by the renewing of the Holy Spirit, Whom He shed on us abundantly, through Jesus Christ, our Savior.”

Romans 5:2
“By Whom also we have access by faith into this grace, wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

Romans 5:15
“the gift of grace, which is by One man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.”

II Corinthians 9:8
“For God is able to make all grace abound toward you.”

The law reveals that mankind is a failure, sinful, destitute of righteousness, unable to save oneself,  unable to ever please God,  and yet, the Lord has given something we cannot ever, no not ever, understand,  conceive,  measure,  nor ever exhaust.  It is ‘grace’.  Grace is a mystery of God.

Grace is free,  provided for all who will receive it. Grace makes us righteous in the sight of God, gives us peace and fellowship with God, guides us and empowers us to know the will of God, helps us bear up under trials and suffering.  Grace makes spiritual things dear to us.  Grace pays the price for our catharsis healing, for our bodily healings.

Hebrews 4:16
“Let us come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help, in the time of need.”

Grace is the remedy for all our sins, it is the remedy for all our sufferings, it is the remedy for our sicknesses and pains, it is the greatest gift, possible.
Grace  provides forgiveness, acceptance, salvation, healings restoration, reward, eternal life, and peace. The plagues caused by sin are not for us.

We are made, not only recipients, of such, but we are to manage such grace, bestowing it on others.

I Peter 4:10
“As every man has received the gift, even so minister the same, one to another, as good stewards of the grace of God.”

Have you been ministering grace to others??? Too many saints think they are deserving of salvation and grace, but the rest of the world are too evil, to wicked, too undeserving of the same grace. They want to pull the ‘welcome’ mat in from the door, and sit in their ‘sanctuaries’. NO!  During plagues like the coronavirus, we can show others this grace of Jesus.

We did not deserve this thing called ‘grace’, and we can never comprehend it, 
Grace is abundant, it is a mystery to all of us in its inexhaustibility for the most sinful of mankind.

Grace comes from God.  He is the Source.  He is the Bestower of grace.  We are only His agents, offering grace for salvation to the sinners, offering grace for healing to the sick.  Grace comes from God, and ‘faith’ also comes from God.  Like the lightbulb in the lamp, it brings light, but it is not the source of the power of the light.  It requires that electric cord be plugged in to the source of electricity. In the same way, faith flows from God, the Source, through us, and bestows GRACE.  We are not the source, nor the power.  We only have power to light this sinful and sick world, due to our connection to the Source of faith and grace.

The demons want to make us feel our sins are too great. The torments of the hearts are destructive, and there is only one cleansing agent able to cleanse the heart, the mind, the soul of mankind.  It is the blood of Jesus.  We need to overcome the devils  with the blood of Jesus. We cannot have confidence in the flesh.  Trying to do better will not help. When the infection of attack is already present, we need the blood of Jesus. We can go to Calvary, to the blood of Jesus, and bathe in the blood of Jesus.

I John 1:9
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just, to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

Mankind, since the time of Adam and Eve, has tried denial of sin, false relgions that purport that sin was not truly sin, and drugs that make one insensitive to the guilt of sin.  None of these truly work.
It is the blood of Jesus, appropriated due to grace, that works this cleansing, this catharsis work in us.  Grace is via the blood of Jesus.  No work, no offering, no holy act will ever earn it for us.  We appropriate the grace, via faith.

We can rejoice in faith of our coming Redeemer, JESUS, and His healing power.  We can share with the world the message that removes our possible panic.  We rejoice in the coming going to heaven in the rapture, and not panic as do the unsaved.
