FRONTLINES APRIL UPDATE
Dear Covenant Partners,
April is upon us, and we are approaching both Passover and our celebration of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I doubt that many of us would have imagined that we would have been facing a global pandemic reminiscent of the biblical plagues against Egypt.
A few thousand years ago on that first Passover night, the children of Israel sheltered in their homes with the blood of the Lamb on their doorposts, and the plague could not touch them. The Exodus account has come to mean so much to us during the outbreak of the Corona Virus. Every single day, I tell that virus that it has to pass over my house because of the power in the blood of Jesus Christ! The blood of the Lamb is over our lives, so we will not allow that evil sickness here.
I have never identified more with Israel’s first Passover than I do right now. They had to feel uncertain. Perhaps they were frightened. Maybe they did not fully understand all that God was saying to them. But the application of the blood of the Lamb was sufficient to protect their households and to release them from their bondage.
May the same be said of us today! May the precious blood of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God be applied to your life! We pray for everyone who has been touched by this virus, that they would be totally made whole. And may God turn this whole situation into something that will bring Him great glory in the nations of the world.
Many of you will find yourselves speaking with friends and relatives (via phone and internet) who are afraid. I have heard reports of backsliders coming back to Christ in the midst of this. Let me encourage you, share Jesus right now. People are listening! Share something encouraging online. Make sure that your life is pointing to the only One who could ever be the answer. The harvest is ripe!
I want to let you know that the Shake The Nations Team is working hard to bring you some fresh content that will encourage you in the Lord. Be sure to watch our YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/shakethenations. You can also check us out on all our social media accounts. We may not be able to gather in person right now, but may the name of the Lord be magnified all over the internet!
All of us at STN love you so much, and we are praying for you. During this time, let me remind you, you can always send us your prayer requests at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to lift your needs up to the Lord. He is listening, and He always answers prayer.
For His Glory,
Lydia S. Marrow
