Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 4
[Recently, I sat down with Chuck Pierce to talk about what God is saying regarding coronavirus COVID-19. Go back and read the prior posts on Give Him 15, beginning March 28th, so we can pray these things into the Church and the global situation. Make sure as you pray through the conversation over the next few days that you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you.]
DUTCH: God is setting the stage for what is coming. I have been telling people that this is not just for America. I know that what God is doing here is not just for here. I run with people like you, Chuck, who are called primarily to the nations. So, I know that what God is doing in America is directly linked in His heart and mind with what is happening in the nations of the earth. And, what is on His mind is the harvest. We can’t lose sight of the forest for the trees. We can’t get so focused on this crisis, that we, as Believers, are not able to step back and ask what God is doing in His big picture.
CHUCK: Well, all you have to do is look at statistics and see we have had a lot worse crisis in the past. We’ve had a lot worse flus. We’ve had a lot worse issues. I think the thing about this is the unknown capability of it. It is not knowing how it will progress that is changing the course of the world. God is taking this and causing nations to re-evaluate how they operate.
Let’s talk about the nations. You always have such a good understanding of what God is doing in the nation and I have always gone to the nations. I have been called to many, but to a few of them especially, like to China and Russia. I have a lot of background and history of what’s happening there.
Last year in September at Rosh Hashanah, I was looking at what 80 is about. 80 is about our voice. It’s about breath. Look at what the crisis is over—voice and breath. It’s happening worldwide. How will the voice and the breath of God enter into nations?
I have a long history of praying for China. I have already been there 3 times this year, meeting with various leaders who help the Church advance in China. In 1986, the Lord showed me China in 10-year increments. He said something then that has never left me, “Starting in 2020, China makes its biggest move toward economic domination worldwide.” A watchman would then start watching China in September 2019. How are they going to make that economic move?
“One is calling to me from Seir, ‘Watchman, what time of the night? Watchman, what time of the night?’ The watchman says: ‘Morning comes, and also the night. If you will inquire, inquire; come back again.’” (Isaiah 21:11-12; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Consider the wisdom of God. Ponder this: His ways are not our ways; His ways are higher than ours. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. (Proverbs 2:6)
God wants us to watch. He wants us to see. He wants us to intercede. Choose to be the one standing on the wall, jumping in the gap. Inquire of the Lord.
Shut all media down today and worship for an hour or two. Put on your favorite instrumental worship music, get your Bible, sit still, and listen.
Say what you hear or what the Lord shows you.
Intercede for the U.S. economy and how it is related to other nations of the earth.
Intercede for the economic relationship between the U.S. and China.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, You are wisdom. You are the author of knowledge and understanding. You have placed things in the earth designed for us to discover and to search out. We must process things we are pondering with Your Holy Spirit, or the enemy will take the knowledge and twist it and use it for his own destructive ends. Lead us, Lord, and teach us. We will inquire of You. We will watch. We will pray. We will proclaim what You put in our hearts and mouth to declare, even when we don’t understand and can’t comprehend. Lord, we will set time apart for You in this quiet season. We will find the time to shut ourselves in with You, because we are in unique days. We have not been this way before. We want to know what things are shifting in the earth. We want to know You more, hear Your voice, see what You want us to see in Your Word, and declare what You want us to declare.
We are in a global economy and the economies of nations are shaking. Everything has gone into lockdown and whole industries are suffering. Some may never recover. Some will not look the same. Look how quickly something beginning in one country has affected the whole earth. Look how quickly the governments of the earth moved to protect the people’s lives, but look at what has happened to their livelihoods. What is China’s role in all of this? Show us how to pray for our economic relationship with China. What will it look like on the other side, Lord? How shall we pray? How shall we position ourselves to make it through? How do we position ourselves to reap the harvest? We look to You, Jesus. Amen.
Let the watchmen arise. Watch and pray, see and understand what the Spirit is saying to the Church. Learn more about Chuck Pierce here.
