Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Virus?


It has taken us here at Van De Bogart Ministries some time to digest what has happened since March, listening to many people from government officials to religious personalities. I shake my head hearing so much unbelief from the same people no more than a few days before exhibited great faith and belief.

A virus from China has caused a worldwide pandemic. Killed less than a fifth of the U.S. population, less than the Swine Flu, and our economy and life in great fear. Believers and non-believers continue to listen to blatant lies from many news sources and social media.

What is the Real Truth?

Now, we are questioning what is the real truth. Thank God most have woken up from their slumber and realized they are not going to be treated or lied to anymore. Walking around the area I live in, few people are wearing masks, gloves, or any additional protective measures. 2 Timothy 1:7 is very clear, “for God gave us a spirit not of fear, but of power and love and self-control.” A very powerful statement. In other Scriptures, the Bible mentions fear, but it means reverence or not to be scared or frightened.

God gave us the power to overcome all obstacles, love for others, and self-control. We can back off Satan as he has no power, but what we give and allow him to do. Satan is a defeated adversary. Jesus’ atoning death at the cross, gave us victory because of the authority given to Him by God the father. Hallelujah, Glory be to God!

Therefore, I am not going to bore you by writing a long post repeating things you already know. I would never treat you like our news/social media treats everyone. There are two Scriptures that I would like for you to remember during this pandemic.

God Promise to You

First, Psalm 91:10, “no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent.” It is God’s promise to you. If you believe and follow God with all your heart, He will not allow any type of evil to overcome you. No plague of any type will come near your tent or dwelling. It includes you, your home, your vehicle, anywhere you go. Furthermore, you have God’s shield or mask of protection. Why would you want what the world provides?

Second, Isaiah 54:17, “no weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed.” Again, another of God’s wonderful promises. He will never back down from His promises. No weapon or virus fashioned, formed, or made against you will succeed or prosper. Then, conventional or unconventional, it will not harm God’s children. Believe and receive it, in the name of Jesus.

Therefore, it is the heritage or inheritance of the servants of the Lord, which means that as born-again believers, we inherit all of God’s precious promises and their vindication or are free from all allegations or blame from me, declares the Lord. Vindication means forgiveness as Jesus offers and died for on the cross. Hallelujah, Glory be to God!


In conclusion, as a born-again Christian, you are a child of the Most-High God, adopted into His family, and all promises are yours. In these two verses, no evil will come on you and no plague can come near you, no weapon formed will prosper. You have all of God’s promises that He will never back down or renege on them ever. Amen!
