1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.
Jesus is my healer
This verse was demonstrated in action by a pastor who was admitted to the ICU due to COVID-19 who tweeted “Jesus is my healer.” Pastor Mark McClurg’s tweet from his hospital bed has gone viral after thousands liked it.
The pastor from Northern Ireland of Elim Pentecostal Church was admitted to Ulster Hospital’s ICU after contracting the deadly virus.
He tweeted on March 24th and created subsequent posts and videos where he told people to follow the guidelines of the government and not to undermine the deadly virus.

“If you get coronavirus and you have to go into the intensive care unit, that means you are going to struggle to breathe, you could go on a ventilator, so please listen to all the advice of the government,” he said.
