 As you all know, the world is experiencing the COVID 19 pandemic right now.  Do you feel like you’re in a battle?  Do you feel the struggle? 

            Where we are in Ontario, we’ve had 6 weeks of school closures, restrictions on groups of people over a certain size, people working from home and non-essential businesses closed.  It has been a struggle!  It is a battle to stay positive, to stay productive and to stay hopeful.

            I’ve heard reports from doctors and nurses in various places who describe their experience as being in a war.  And in some places, as doctors face difficult situations having to decide who gets treatment, who gets a ventilator, etc., they really are performing triage like on a battlefield.  I can’t even imagine how hard that is for them.

            Last week, we examined Rev 4, considering the question, “What is really going on?”  We looked at the fact that regardless of the affliction we experience here in the earthly realm, God is still on his throne.  In God’s presence, the threatening powers like storms, chaos and the forces of nature, submit to the will of God.  In addition, the creatures representing life on earth and the 24 elders surrounding God’s throne are consistently worshipping God, bowing before him and offering him songs of praise because of who he is and what he has done.
