Preaching in Church Again
For those who believe and bear the fruits of repentance it will be the baptism of the Holy Spirit but for those who don't produce the fruits of repentance, it will be the baptism of fire. I even felt led to mention a mega church in Singapore where the health and wealth gospel is promoted. I basically said that when times are hard, these churches will fall away because wealth cannot redeem them and they are not prepared to suffer hardships for "it is through many tribulations one enters the kingdom of God" (Acts 14). I mentioned about the false teaching that one can conduct the Lord's communion at home, either privately or for one's family or that taking the emblems promises health. The Covid-19 is a lesson to us all. It is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, first preached by his cousin, John then by the Lord himself - "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."
