Arleen Westerhof shares a prophetic word the Lord spoke to her regarding the coronavirus as a shaking but not for destruction; it is for transformation. She also details what God is saying on both a macro and personal level, which includes that globalization is not His idea.
What I hear God saying on both a macro and personal level is this:
1. It’s time to lift up our eyes and fix our gaze on Jesus, our Source of life (John 3:14-16). Don’t allow yourself to be distracted by fear.
2. “Corona” means crown. There is, however, only One who wears the crown and that is Jesus Christ: “I am the Lord; that is My name! I will not give My glory to anyone else, nor share My praise with carved idols” (Isa. 42:8).
3. Globalization is not God’s idea. God is the Creator of nations (Gen. 11). He is the One who established languages, ethnicities and geographical borders. It was never His intention for one nation to dominate others as China is doing today. We have to start to rethink our global supply chains.
4. As nations and as individuals, we need to start to treasure our unique identities and callings in Christ. We cannot afford to give them away, or sell them, in the name of financial gain. For example, according to Arthur Burke, the Netherlands is a “giver” nation. This means that the concepts of stewardship and caring for others are very important to those of us from this nation. We are called to release life-giving generational blessings into family lines. We are called to produce life-giving systems through holiness and intimacy with God. The United States is a “prophet/ruler” nation where concepts like freedom and helping others to walk in their callings are important. Superstates in which nations relinquish their national identities are not God’s idea.
