GETTING PAST THE PANDEMIC
We have some older updates on our blog regarding the Coronavirus pandemic. I have purposed today to update you on what we are hearing regarding this time and what OACC is planning to do moving forward.
First we are believing God and Decreeing according to JOB 23:28, that each of us and our families will remain safe during this pestilence, and that God will continue to cover us with His blood. We are blood covered in our homes and at our jobs, and at our church, and everywhere our feet shall tread upon, we are blood covered and Shekinah Glory guided. The blood that was on the doors of the Israelites as the death angel roamed to destroy and kill, was simply identification that we carried that declared “WE BELONG TO GOD”. It was not identification for God to know who they were and where they were, because God knows all, but it was identification that the Israelites SHOULD know and declare who they were. God said, “When I see the blood”, when I see the identification, when I see that you know who you are, I will ensure that the destroyer passes over your dwelling place. (EXODUS 12:13) Know who you are and who’s you are! You are not your own; you were bought with a price! (1 CORINTHIANS 6:20)
So now this pandemic has been challenging for all of us; never the less, God has shown us the mettle that he has imparted in us to endure the toughest of times. We have seen death, loss, sadness, anger, betrayal, selfishness in the government sector to name of few, but we have also seen ourselves overcome the attacks of fear and lies of which the enemy is the author. You are built for the storm Saints of God!
Now, be sure to wear your masks, and practice social distancing as much as possible. If you are not feeling well, stay home and be sure to get yourself checked out. Protect yourself and protect others because we don’t know all the details of this pestilence. Only God knows.
I am no expert on this, but you can go to the following link to learn more. Please use discernment and pray, pray, pray, because God, more than anyone, has your best interest at heart.

Finally, we at OACC are planning to move into a bigger space as the Lord allows and we are hoping this will come before the end of this year. In the interim, we are planning to reopen (softly) on July 19th at our regular time 11:30AM. We will have the sanctuary set up for social distancing, we will have sanitizer stations set up, we will have temperatures taken at the door (topical/temporal), we will also do registrations for attendance so that we do not over-crowd. (Some seating will be removed for social-distancing purposes.) WE WILL CERTAINLY CONTINUE OUR ONLINE STREAMING PRESENCE.
Family of God, we are going to get through this pandemic together with God leading us.
PSALM 23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
