UNDERSTANDING THE PURPOSE OF THE STORM – Ikechukwu Peter

The devil wants to distract us with the cause of the pandemic instead of trying to understand the purpose of it. The cause is inconsequential, it is not as important as the purpose. Was the Church heading for Tarshis?..the answer is an obvious YES. Was the Church ready for God’s next project of global revival?….the answer is an obvious NO. The storm was necessary to redirect us to Nineveh, our original assignment!…When storms come, will the economy of Nations be affected…Yes they will be affected, but God doesn’t care about that as much as he care about putting us back on track. During the storm of Jonah, Nations lost great wealth to the high sea.

The purpose of the storm is to place us on compulsory divine quarantine like God did to Jonah….his own was in the belly of the fish for three days and three nights, there he learnt to pray, to call on God, to depend and trust on God….he learnt the importance of divine alignment. He was not complaining about government palliatives, erratic power supply, 5G or 10G ….he saw the purpose of the storm and knew that everything associated with it was orchestrated by God to put him back on track. Let us also understand this and stop all the arguments about theoricies of conspiracy, 5G, Nepa problem, government persecution etc….let us see everything associated with this pandemic as structured and worked in by God to prepare us for the next phase of His project on earth. When we understand this, we will put off our televisions for a while, we will put off the comedy channel for a while and seek to rebuild the alter of prayer and our communion with God…..we now have all the time for that, no more excuse! There is Church in every home now.

In a great house there are many vessels but some are to honor while other are for dishonor..some are gold, silver, wood and clay. The pandemic met you as wood…but are you going return as wood or as gold after the pandemic. This will be determined by the understanding we have about the pandemic!

Jonah returned from the Pandemic as gold even though it met him as clay. How will you return?

In fact, the duration of the pandemic it dependent on our understanding it. The more we spend time talking about 5G and other theories the longer it will tarry. It is time to build capacity for the global revival. This is a global pandemic structured to usher in the global harvest. God saw that the Church has veered away from the original plan to Niniveh and He allowed the storm to take us back from Tarshis to His original call. Jonah ran almost 8000km from the purpose of God….how are we from His purpose?

It’s time to prepare for the next phase of God’s project.

God is the one shaking the earth…His wrath is to make things right.

Haggai 2:7-8 New International Version (NIV)

I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the Lord Almighty.

I’m returning to the great house as Gold prepared for every good work!
