The US State Department has had China at a Level 4: Do not Travel advisory since March 28, 2020 due to the Covid-19 outbreak. However earlier this month they expanded that advisory to warn against a new People’s Republic of China (PRC) practice. The warning is listed as a “arbitrary enforcement of local laws for purposes other than maintaining law and order, including the use of exit bans.” This detention would be “without access to U.S. consular services or information about the alleged crime.”
This is another show of control by the government that will hinder the spread of the gospel in the country. During this time of viruses and natural disasters (see article) the government should be focusing on helping the people not only physically, but spiritually. Instead they are using it to hinder true spiritual help. The stronghold of satan is evident, as this time is being used for a strengthening of the deception. We know we don’t fight against flesh and blood, but this is a spiritual battle. Ephesians 6:12
Please pray for China, we serve a great God and He is able to break down these strongholds. Will you pray for China today?
