Weekly Watch Focus: The Ebola Outbreak

FRIDAY, Oct. 10, 2014, The possibility of the plague of Ebola breaking loose across America and other nations beyond West Africa has increased in recent days. A man from Liberia has died from Ebola in Dallas, TX this past Wednesday. Apparently we have no cure for this dread disease. It can easily become a pandemic, quickly crossing borders. Let us cry out for God’s mercy and grace. Pray that God will help us stop the spread of this plague. Let us pray for all health officials in America and the world to have godly wisdom to safeguard the health of the nations. Pray that political correctness will not be the guiding factor for our health officials. We plead the blood of the Lamb over our families, cities, and nation (Exod. 12:13). God promised that “when I see the blood, I will pass over you and the plague shall not be upon you.” 

Pray for those who have come in contact with this disease. Pray for the brave medical personnel helping care for those already infected with Ebola in the West-African region. Pray for our armed forces sent over to the stricken nations to give assistance in the fight against this deadly plague. May they be protected from infection. Ebola is perhaps one of the end-times pestilences mentioned in the Bible (Luke 21:11). Stand against this plague in the authority of Jesus’ name and bind it away from our land.

Exod. 15:26, ““If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.”

Ps. 91:10, “No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling.”

Num. 21:8, “Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.’”

Num. 16:46-48, “So Moses said to Aaron, ‘Take a censer and put fire in it from the altar, put incense on it, and take it quickly to the congregation and make atonement for them; for wrath has gone out from the Lord. The plague has begun.” Then Aaron took it as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of the assembly; and already the plague had begun among the people. So he put in the incense and made atonement for the people. And he stood between the dead and the living; so the plague was stopped.’”
