OPINION (Charisma) – Whenever you turn on the news, you’re bound to hear something about the coronavirus right now. Some say it’s not as big a deal as it’s made out to be, while others are sounding the alarm that it’s even worse than is being reported. But what the media isn’t telling you is how the coronavirus is affecting the church—and how God is moving in mighty ways even through the outbreak.

As dangerous as this virus is, it’s no match for the power of the Holy Spirit. Recently, I interviewed Dennis Balcombe, a missionary to China for the past 40 years. He shared some incredible insights into what God is doing through His people, including the sick coming for healing and people running to churches for hope.

Amedia’s sources, whom he believes are reliable, can confirm Bolcombe’s report. Amedia has been on my Strang Report podcast many times, offering prophetic and spiritual insight into our culture. This time, he sheds light on what God is doing in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak. “We’ve had reports of Christians being healed of this virus by the power of God and the healing of God,” he says. “My sources tell me the same thing, whenever there is this kind of a problem—like there was with SARS.” READ MORE
