I live in Canada where thinking for oneself is increasingly a crime.
We sense coming persecution that will include the closure of Bible-believing churches under the pretense of “equality”.
Is it possible that Covid is a blessing in disguise that moves the Church in the direction of small gatherings so as to prepare her for future persecution?
It is hard to stamp out the Church when it is disbanded into small non-public gatherings. Just ask the believers in China, Russia, or Turkey.
To obtain the full blessing, house churches should have leadership that strongly encourages every member to participate, 1Cor. 14:26.
But there is a place for both “old and new wineskins” in the economy of God, that is, meeting in a traditional building (until forcibly stopped), and meeting in houses.
We must mainly see the strategy of God in Covid and only minimally what the devil is up to. Then you will have peace.
Your God reigns!
Suggested video. (My personal view is that we should find ways of obeying government restrictions until clearly incompatible with biblical ordinances. For example, why not break up into small meetings rather than go to prison? There will be plenty of time for that in the coming days!)
