Covid 19, Fear, Panic, Revelation, Reason and Anointed Action

Mark Virkler's picture

I received an email today which included the following questions: What are we to think about the Corona Virus, the nation's/world's response to it?  The collapse of our economy, the sequestering of peoples.  Are we in the tribulation, last days?  How does this fit into prophecy?  How do I manage the fear I have for the safety of my children, grandchildren, and for our jobs and abilities to buy food and survive?  I feel ill equipped to navigate these waters.

Must I Work Hard To Be Successful?

Hmmm, what does the Bible say? Seems like my constant pushing produced internal stress, which led to a heart attack three months ago. So is there something I need to learn about living in rest, and living stress free? Obviously stress is a killer. Below is my story, followed by some key biblical principles.

God Says I Am Healed Yet Symptoms Persist

Mark Virkler's picture

Restless leg syndrome started seven weeks after open heart surgery. I prayed for healing and then journaled and God has told me I was healed physically. Yet the symptoms of the infirmity persist. So now what do I do? Acknowledge I still have restless leg syndrome, or acknowledge that I’m healed?

Download this “Inner Healing for an Organ – Prayer Worksheet and complete it (free and interactive), or you can do your journaling in your journaling notebook.

Which of the 10 Commandments Can You Break and No One Raises an Eyebrow?

Mark Virkler's picture

Having recently suffered a heart attack because of stress, I decided I should research what the Bible says about Sabbath rest. Growing up on a dairy farm, we milked cows every Sunday. As a preacher, I preached every Sunday. However, in the story of creation God established the rhythm of six days of work and one day of rest.

Ever So SLOWLY Learning About Blood Pressure

Mark Virkler's picture

Four days after leaving the hospital from my heart bypass surgery, I met for the first time with a nurse practitioner at the office of my “functional  medicine” MD, Dr. Jose Fernandez who was recommended to me by my chiropractor. She told us to purchase a $30 blood pressure monitor and check my blood pressure morning and evening. I did. You can also  purchase one from Amazon.

I saw it steadily going down, which concerned me. So I called the hospital where the surgery was performed and talked to the head nurse on the floor I was on. She informed me the first of the two numbers given in a blood pressure test is the number to be concerned about and it should not go below 90 (I was still at 92.) The first number (systolic) is your blood pressure when the heart beats and pressure is exerted in the arteries, and the second number (diastolic) is blood pressure between each heartbeat when the heart is at rest and not pumping blood into the arteries.
