The COVID-19 pandemic has sent all sorts of repercussions around the world. Evidence is mounting that God is also using it to draw people closer to Himself.
To have a proper spiritual perspective on this crisis, apostle Jane Hamon says on Dr. Barbara's Whole Life Podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network that we have to keep in mind that God is not its author. "I don't believe God caused COVID-19. But it did not take Him by surprise," she says.
Hamon shares a vision she had in late December that helps explain God's perspective. "I had a vision where I saw Jesus standing and putting a white stone into the hands of believers. I saw believers lined up and Jesus walking down the line, putting a white stone in their hands ... looking each believer in the eye and nodding His head like, 'You got this, OK,'" she says. "And then as the scene moved down, I saw Him giving a white stone to President Trump. Then I saw Him giving a white stone to President Trump's family. And then I saw Him put a white stone into the hands of each one of President Trump's advisers. And so I thought this was very interesting.
"But when I went to the Scripture, and I found in Revelation chapter 2, verse 17, Jesus is prophesying to the church at Pergamon. And this is a church that was really challenged with a lot of idolatry and wickedness and false doctrine and you name it, this church was going through it," Hamon says. "And yet Jesus says to them, 'To him who overcomes I will give you to eat of the hidden manna, and I will give you a white stone with a name written on it that only he knows.' And so this was the white stone of the overcomer."
