When Hell Has The Flu



WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A PRETTY AGGRESSIVE FLU SEASON. MY FAMILY AND I NEVER HAD THE FLU RUN THROUGH OUR HOME, BUT I’VE HEARD STORIES. SOME OF OUR GOOD FRIENDS AND SOME OF MY COLLEGUES IN THE OFFICE INCLUDING MY DIRECTOR RECENTLY HAD IT. AND OMGEEE WE HAD NO LYSOL. I WAS CLOROX WIPING DOWN THE DAY HE CALLED ME AND TOLD ME HE HAD THE FLU. I GAVE HIMYES MY DIRECTOR THE REST OF THAT WEEK OFF…AND IT SEEMED LIKE HE LISTENED TOO LOL. I AM ON THE ROAD A LOT VISITING PROPERTIES AND I AM ONLY IN THE OFFICE A COUPLE OF DAYS A WEEK, BUT I AM SO GLAD I WAS IN THE OFFICE THAT DAY. WHEN OUR RECEPTIONIST SENT OUT HER WEEKLY EMAIL BLAST THAT SAME DAY REMINDING US SHE WOULD BE ORDERING FROM THE OFFICE SUPPLY STORE ASKING US WHAT WE NEEDED, I KINDLY WALKED OVER TO HER AND SAID LYSOL PLEASE! THEY KNOW I DO NOT PLAY LOL.


ALTHOUGH I NEVER HAD THE FLU, I’VE HAD THE COMMON COLD AND I ALSO KNOW THEY ARE TOTALLY DIFFERENT. THE COMMON COLD IS EASIER TO TREAT AND IF YOU CATCH IT EARLY ENOUGH WITH 1000MG’S OF VITAMIN C YOU CAN STOP IT FROM DEVELOPING INTO A FULL-BLOWN COLD. THE FLU ON THE OTHER HAND, THERE IS NO VITAMIN C, NO COLD OR EVEN COLD AND FLU REMEDY TO STOP IT. THE FLU MUST TAKE IT’S COARSE. I DID A LITTLE RESEARCH ON FLU TREATMENT TO MAKE SURE I HAD THAT UNDERSTANDING CORRECTLY. THE RESEARCH REPORTED THAT THE FLU IS PRIMARILY TREATED WITH REST AND FLUID TO LET THE BODY FIGHT THE INFECTION ON IT’S OWN.


THIS SCRIPTURE IN 2 CORINTHIANS 4:8-9 REMINDS ME A LOT OF THE FLU. I IMAGINED WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE IN THE SPIRIT, HELL HAVING THE FLU.

2 Corinthians 4:8-9 King James Version (KJV)

8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;


USUALLY HELL GOES IN OVER DRIVE WHEN YOU ARE ON THE CUSP OF SOMETHING GREAT IN YOUR JOURNEY TO YOUR DESTINY. USUALLY RIGHT BEFORE SPIRITUAL PROMOTION HELL STARTS PULLING EVERYTHING OUT. THESE MULTIPLE SYMPTOMS I CALL THEM IN 2 CORINTHIANS THAT PAUL SPOKE ABOUT ARE NOT COMMON LIKE THE COMMON COLD IF YOU CATCH IT EARLY ENOUGH YOU CAN STOP IT FROM DEVELOPING. NO…OUR PRAYERS AND CONFESSIONS LIKE THE VITAMIN C AND COLD REMEDIES WILL NOT SEND THIS AWAY. OUR PRAYERS AND CONFESSIONS AND SPEAKING THE WORD IS ALWAYS EFFECTIVE EVERY TIME BELIEVE THAT, AND IN THIS CASE THEY ARE EFFECTIVE DOING A WORK AND MAKING CHANGES IN US WHILE WE ARE STILL GOING THROUGH. THERE ARE TIMES WE ARE IN FLU LIKE SITUATIONS WHERE THEY MUST TAKE THEIR COARSE. IT DOES NOT MEAN GOD DOES NOT HEAR US, AGAIN HE IS DOING A WORK IN US WHILE WE ARE IN IT AND WHILE HE IS TAKING US THROUGH. THIS IS A PART OF OUR GROWTH AND MATURITY. WHEN YOU ARE ON TRACK AND YOU KNOW YOU ARE ALIGNING YOURSELF WITH THE WORD OF GOD, THEN OUT OF NO WHERE IT SEEMS LIKE EVERY WHERE YOU TURN SOMETHING AND/OR SOMEONE IS COMING AGAINST YOU. THE WAY YOU FIGHT WHEN HELL HAS THE FLU IS RESTING IN WHAT GOD SAYS IN HIS PROMISES AND FILLING YOURSELF WITH FLUID OR LIQUID. THAT FLUID OR LIQUID IS THE SPIRIT OF GOD. IT IS IMPORTANT FOR US TO LET THE BODY FIGHT THE INFECTION SO WE NEED HELP FROM THE BODY OF CHRIST.

NOW IF YOU HAVE THE FLU IN THE NATURAL YOU ARE ISOLATED…WELL YOU SHOULD BE ISOLATED…DO NOT GO OUT IF YOU HAVE THE FLU IN THE NATURAL PLEASE LOL…BUT I AM SO SERIOUS. HOWEVER, WHEN YOU HAVE FLU LIKE SYMPTOMS IN THE SPIRIT AND HELL IS COMING HARD AFTER YOU, YOU NEED TO BE AROUND THE FAMILY OF GOD, CONNECTED TO THE FAMILY OF GOD (IF YOU CAN’T GET AROUND), CONNECTED TO THE BODY OF CHRIST TO HELP YOU FIGHT THE INFECTION THAT IS TRYING TO TAKE YOU OUT. HELL HAD THE MOST SEVERE FLU IN JOB’S LIFE BUT HE KEPT PRESSING ON AND TRUSTING GOD. HE DID NOT ALLOW FRIENDS WHO WERE NOT IN TUNE TO DISTRACT HIM FROM WHAT HE KNEW ABOUT HIS GOD. JOB INTERCEDED FOR THEM INSTEAD RIGHT IN THE MIDST OF HIS PAIN. JOB DID NOT ALLOW HIS WIFE’S NEGATIVE TALK TO DISTRACT HIM, HE SHUT IT DOWN. AT THE END OF JOB’S FLU HE GOT PROMOTED ENDED UP WITH MORE THAN HE HAD BEFORE. AS YOU ARE RESTING IN HIM THROUGH PRAYER, READING HIS WORD, AND TAKING IN THE FLUID OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ALLOWING THE FLU TO TAKE IT’S COARSE, YOU ARE NOT DISTRESSED…NOT IN DESPAIR… YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT FORSAKEN…. AND NOT DESTROYED AS PAUL SAYS IN 2 CORINTHIANS. IN OTHER WORDS, THE PROBLEM IS STILL THERE, BUT THE PROBLEM DOESN’T HAVE A HOLD OF YOU. YOU ARE GOOD, GOD IS GOOD, AND YOU KNOW THAT TROUBLE WON’T LAST ALWAYS…GLORY TO GOD.

I DO NOT KNOW WHERE YOU ARE IN YOUR JOURNEY. YOU MAY BE IN ONE OF THE GREATEST SEASONS OF YOUR LIFE AND ALREADY ON THE OTHER SIDE OF YOUR THROUGH OR YOU MAY BE RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A SPIRITUAL FLU SEASON LIKE WE ARE IN THE NATURAL. IF THAT IS YOU, THERE IS HOPE AND GOD’S GRACE WILL GET YOU THROUGH. ALSO, BE ALERT. YOU WANT TO KNOW WHO IS WHO WHEN YOU ARE GOING THROUGH. NOW IF YOU CLAIM THE NAME OF CHRIST AND SOMEONE AROUND YOU IS IN A SPIRITUAL FLU SEASON, REACH FOR THEM, PRAY WITH THEM AND ENCOURAGE THEM. BE A PART OF THE BODY THAT BUILDS THEM UP LIKE AN ANTIBIOTIC AND VITAMIN C (VITAMIN CHRIST-LIKE) WHILE THEY ARE WAITING TO GET THROUGH THEIR THROUGH.


ONE THING ABOUT HAVING A COLD AND BEING DOWN, IT FEELS SO GOOD WHEN YOU ARE BETTER AND ON THE OTHER SIDE OF IT. I CAN’T TELL YOU IT FEELS LIKE TO HAVE THE NATURAL FLU I CAN ONLY IMAGINE. HOWEVER I CAN TELL YOU WHAT IT FEELS LIKE WHEN YOU BOUNCE BACK FROM THE HELL’S FLU. LOOK FORWARD TO THE DAY YOU WILL BE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF HELL’S FLU. LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR BOUNCE BACK TO INSIGHT AND DEEPER RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FATHER. YOU WILL SEE DIFFERENTLY AND LOVE MORE MAKE MORE SOUND DECISIONS AND GOD’S ANOINTING WILL REST ON YOU TO DO WHAT HE HAS CALLED YOU TO DO. YOU WILL BE FREE AND HELL WILL BE EVEN MORE AFRAID. ALTHOUGH IT MAY SEEM HEAVY WHILE IN IT, GOD’S WORD SAYS OUR LIGHT AFFLICTION IS ONLY BUT FOR A MOMENT. GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL AND THERE IS NOTHING THAT HELL CAN SEND THAT WILL OVER TAKE YOU IF YOU GRAB HOLD OF HIS POWER AND TRUST HIM.

THE GREAT PHYSICIAN HAS ORDERED US TO FIGHT BACK WITH REST AND PLENTY OF FLUID. HELL’S FLU WON’T LAST FOREVER! WE WIN!

MY PRAYER FOR YOU: GOD OUR GREAT GOD. YOU ARE JEHOVAH RAPHA THE LORD THAT HEALS. YOU ARE JEHOVAH NISSI THE LORD OUR BANNER WHO FIGHTS FOR US GIVING US THE VICTORY. YOU ARE JEHOVAH JIREH THE ONLY GOD WHO PROVIDES FOR US. YOU ARE JEHOVAH RAAH THE LORD OUR SHEPHERD. YOU ARE JEHOVAH SHALOM THE ONLY GOD OF OUR PEACE. WE HONOR YOU TODAY. WE CALL ON THE NAME OF JESUS TODAY THAT GREAT NAME THAT HAS ALL POWER. THAT GREAT NAME WE CALL AND DEMONS FLEE. NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST US WILL BE ABLE TO PROSPER. AND EVERY TONGUE THAT RISES AGAINST US SHALL BE CONDEMNED FOR THIS OUR HERITAGE. THAT GREAT NAME THAT IS ABOVE EVERY NAME. FATHER I SPEAK HEALING OVER YOUR PEOPLE TODAY. HEAL IN THE MIND. HEAL IN THE EMOTIONS GOD. HEAL IN THE BODY. HEAL IN THE SOULISH REALM. HEAL IN THE HEART TODAY. STRENGTHEN YOUR PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING THROUGH HARD TIMES TODAY. LET THEM FEEL THE TANGIBLE PRESENCE OF YOUR WARM EMBRACE. YOU ARE A GOOD GOOD FATHER. YOU ARE WITH US AND YOU ARE FOR US. HELL’S FLU HAS NOTHING ON YOUR GREAT POWER. HAVE YOUR WAY TOUCH HEAL AND DELIVER. IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME AMEN.
