I sensed the Lord was saying that it is a Davidic anointing that will deal with the Covid-19. The Lord gave me Dovid-19, and a number of scriptures where He highlighted chapter 19. Barbara pointed out that Dovid is the Jewish (Yiddish) spelling for David. I believe that the Lord is using this virus to wipe out some of the Saul-like structures in the church and take us back to the heart of David, the harp and bowl ministry and house churches.
When Barbara and I hosted the 3-day Australia Day Prayer in Canberra this year, the Lord led me to prophesy over the ACT and Canberra delegates that the Lord wanted them to model the church in the book of Acts. I could see them meeting in house churches across the city and multiplying. Acts 15:13-19 also talks about the Tabernacle of David which raises up prayer, praise and worship, Godly justice, the government of God and Jew and Gentile worshipping together. I saw this as a blueprint that would then spread out from Canberra, the head of the nation, around Australia.
The Lord gave me these scriptures at the Australia Day Prayer we hosted in Canberra. One was Exodus 20:20, where Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you”, so we need not be afraid of this testing time with the coronavirus. Also, we need to believe the Lord will reveal Himself through this time, as in John 20:20, “After He said this, He showed them His hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.”
The Lord highlighted 5 scriptures to me relating to Covid-19 and Dovid-19 – Genesis 19, Psalms 19, Isaiah 19, Acts 19 and Revelation 19.
Psalm 19:9 says, “Reverence (fear) of the Lord is pure, lasting forever. The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair.” We need to have fear of God, not fear of the coronavirus.
Psalm 19:1 says that “The heavens proclaim the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.” We aren’t meant to touch one another, but God’s hand is not so short that it can’t save, and His hand is in the land.
In Genesis 18:23-32, Abraham pleads that if there are 50 righteous in Sodom and Gomorrah, not to destroy the righteous with the wicked. God agreed He would spare it if 50 could be found. Abraham pleads for mercy progressively down to 10 righteous, and God agrees. In Genesis 19, Abraham awakes to their destruction with not even 10 righteous found. We need to plead with God for mercy as Abraham did.
We need Davidic worship to deal with crisis situations like the coronavirus. Barbara and I have a vision to establish Davidic worship or Tabernacles of David, or the harp and bowl ministry along the Isaiah 19 highway. Isaiah 19:23-25 says,
In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together. In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. The Lord Almighty will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt My people, Assyria My handiwork, and Israel My inheritance.”
The Lord has been impressing upon me that we need to be praying for signs, wonders and miracles, as this is what He wants to pour out at this time. We need to be praying that we will have the same anointing as Peter so that people would be healed by our shadow. Also, that we can lay hands on hankies, aprons etc and people will be healed. That’s the kind of contagion I would like. Acts 19:11-12 says:
“God did extraordinary miracles through Paul, so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them.”
Also, there was a riot in Ephesus when Paul persuaded them that handmade gods were not gods at all, and so idol makers where losing business. The idol-makers stirred up the crowd to defend the goddess Artemis or Diana, and they gathered in the amphitheatre to shout, “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!”
In 1998, Peter Wagner gathered a large group from around the world in the same amphitheatre to worship for 4 hours to reverse what happened in the spirit with this incident. We were privileged to be with them, and I believe a 4-hour prayer event is very powerful in pushing back the enemy.
We need to pray against rioting and lawlessness that could occur with millions of people suddenly jobless, who may have trouble paying for their house and food, etc. Relationships may break down and social norms may be at risk. We need also to pray that internet, telephone, electricity and other services are maintained, as there is an extra load on them and chaos could occur with such a communication breakdown.
Through this chaos, there is a Kairos time in God for godly breakthrough and salvations.
Revelation 19 shows that Heaven itself erupts in praise and songs of victory when Babylon has fallen. God has the last say over the world system, and all that is not of Him. There are four hallelujahs.
After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting:
“Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,
for true and just are His judgments.
He has condemned the great prostitute
who corrupted the earth by her adulteries.
He has avenged on her the blood of his servants.”
We have throne-room worship, the roar of rushing waters or loud thunder and the wedding feast of the Lamb. Great joy erupts in Heaven.
I believe we are in a war between the ancient dragon and the Ancient of Days (Daniel 7:9), the father of lies and the Father of Truth and the false roaring lion (1 Peter 5:8) and the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. And we know Who wins.
I believe we need to lay our crowns down before the Lord like the 24 elders in Revelation 4:10. The Lion of Judah (Jesus) is the only One worthy to open the scroll and when He took the scroll, the 24 elders fell down before the Lamb (Jesus) with their harps and bowls and they sang a new song:
“And when He had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people.” (Revelation 5:8)
As a prophetic act, I would like to see 3 elders from each state and territory, i.e. 24 elders, lay their crowns down before the Lord and shout, “Hallelujah!”
