“There shall be PESTILENCES.” – Matthew 24:7/Luke 21:11
Coronavirus… There is virtually no one in this world today who does not know the word. And, I guess you could say, rightfully so. After all, it is a disease that has infected nearly 100,000 people. But my job as a man of God is to quell your fears, which the devil and the secular mainstream media have rapidly built up.
First off, let’s examine what we know about the Coronavirus – also known as CVID-19.
More than 83,000 people in over 50 countries have been infected, and nearly 3,000 have died due to the virus. Bear in mind, that is less than 3% of the infected actually dying from the disease. Plus, a majority of the deaths have occurred in China. It is also important to note that a majority of the deaths have been of the elderly and those with very weak immune systems.
Yet, young people on Twitter believe it is the end of the world. While we are, most certainly, living in the End of the Age according to the Holy Bible, it is NOT the end of the world. It is not the Apocalypse.
This current pestilence, as I’ve explained in recent articles and my YouTube series, is what Jesus referred to as a “birth pang.” It is one of the many signs of our times heralding the Rapture, which will usher in the Tribulation Hour. THEN, the world is really going to have to fear the plagues that befall our planet. Those plagues will have no cure, and will torment the heathen that remain on the earth.
The outbreak of the disease began in China a little over 2 months ago, and the Chinese government enforced a quarantine of 700 million people to control the spread of the virus. Outside of China, the most cases of the virus have been reported in Iran, Italy, Japan, and South Korea. There are currently only 60 cases in the United States, but the American mainstream media hysteria would have you think that there were thousands.
The U.S. Stock Market has plummeted for 6 straight days, and that will likely continue today (Friday). On Thursday, the DOW fell almost 1,200 points – which was the worst one-day drop in the history of the DJI average. It has shed over 3,000 points for the week, which is a drop of over 11%. These historic drops are due to the fear stoked by the mainstream media – which I might add is extremely anti-Trump.
Is it a coincidence that the liberal media is making you think that it is the end of the world in an Election year? I don’t believe that it is. I think they know exactly what they are doing.
There is already talk of a vaccine for the Coronavirus being made available to the public within 90 days. And guess where that vaccine is being created? If you’re a Bible believer, you should know the answer. Of course, it is being developed in ISRAEL – the age-old source of Almighty God’s blessings upon the world.
The wall-to-wall hysterics of the news media have led to the emptying of grocery store shelves, and that will most likely continue in the near-term. Now, don’t get me wrong, I think you would be wise to stock up on necessities that are essential to your survival and the survival of family and pets. But not because of this Coronavirus specifically.
I believe that we are in the season of the signs heralding the Rapture of the faithful, and those signs (many of which we are seeing on a weekly basis) include earthquakes, severe weather disasters, wars and rumours of war, wildfires, and more (most likely worse) pestilences.
These signs, and many more, are what my books have been all about. I want you all to be aware of the prophetic times we are living in, and to remain alert, prepared, and firmly grounded in the Faith.
You should all know that the world is going to get more dangerous, and times are going to become more perilous leading up to the Rapture event. After we are gone, all hell will break loose on Planet Earth. So, we should all be stocking up on prescriptions, non-perishable food and drinks, and pet food.
The number one reason why I believe that we believers should do so is because the panicked world that knoweth not our God are going to begin to hoard during each and every new disease outbreak or fear of war. Their trepidation will most likely create shortages of everyday necessities for the rest of us.
Sadly, much of the secular world and even some Biblically-ignorant believers think that we are currently living out the Book of Revelation. Many have been led to believe that the Coronavirus is one of the plagues of the Tribulation Hour. They are wrong.
The plagues of the Book of Revelation will kill millions. This virus has not even taken the lives of 5,000 people. We are NOT in the 7-year Tribulation period and we are not experiencing the plagues written therein. I write in great detail about every plague that will befall the inhabitants of Earth in my new book, The COMING Signs of Our Times – and, thanks be to God, Bible believers of today will not be here when they are unleashed by the LORD upon humanity.
In my second book, Even More Signs of Our Times, I penned an entire chapter on “Pestilences.” I wrote about how the experts all agree that an uncontrolled pandemic could result in the deaths of about 30-million people. Coronavirus is extremely far from reaching that fatality rate. While this virus and a global pandemic in the future may sound frightening, there is one sure way to keep yourself and your family safe – FAITH.
Even if the world experiences a plague unrivaled in history in our generation, we believers can take heart that the LORD will keep us far from it. In EMSOOT, I also wrote why Christians have absolutely nothing to fear when it comes to pestilences. Here is a brief excerpt from the book as to why –
Psalm 91: 3 says, “Surely He shall deliver you from the noisome pestilence,” and verse 6 says that “We shall not fear the pestilence that walks in darkness.”
I like to think back to the Book of Exodus, and the LORD’s promise to “pass over” His people when the plagues came upon Egypt. As we believers have been living in a modern-day Egypt/Babylon, I believe that God’s age-old promises still ring just as true for us today as they did for the Israelites.
Instead of marking the doorposts of our homes with the blood of a lamb though, we instead can symbolically cover our doorposts and homes in the Blood of the Lamb of God – Christ Jesus. If God passed over His precious people when they marked their homes in the blood of a mere animal, how much more will He now pass over us when we mark our homes in the Holiest Blood to ever be poured out on God’s green Earth… the Blood of His beloved only begotten Son?
I personally mark my home in the Blood of Jesus on every annual Passover feast and, thanks be to God, He has kept His faithful promise (from Exodus) to keep the destroyer, the spoiler, disaster, plagues, and every evil far away from my home. He will do the same for you if you dedicate your home to Him, cover it in the Blood of His Son, and believe by faith. There is no global plague or pandemic that can ever claim the life of a believer if we put our trust in God’s Word, repent of our sins daily, and diligently seek Him in times of national or personal distress.
Here are some Biblical verses that I take heart in –
“And the blood (of the Lamb) shall be to you for a sign upon the houses where you are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt, saith the LORD God.” – Exodus 12:13
“If you will diligently hearken to the Voice of the LORD your God, and will do that which is right in His Sight, and will give ear to His Commandments, and keep all His Statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon you, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I Am the LORD that heals you.” – Exodus 15:26
“You shall serve the LORD your God, and He shall take sickness away from the midst of you.” – Exodus 23:25
“The LORD will take away from you all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which you know, upon you; but will lay them upon all them that hate you.” – Deuteronomy 7:15
“He forgives all your iniquities; He heals all your diseases.” – Psalm 103:3
“He (Jesus Christ) was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.” – Isaiah 53:5
“Unto you that fear My Name shall the Sun of righteousness (Jesus) arise with healing in His wings, saith the LORD.” – Malachi 4:2
“The prayer of faith shall save the sick…” – James 5:15
“He (Jesus) His Own Self bare our sins in His Own Body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by His stripes you were healed.” – 1st Peter 2:24
Lord Jesus told us that, in the season of His return, there would be “pestilences.” We have seen them popping up more and more over the course of the past decade, and I believe that they will only grow worse leading up to His Second Coming. Thank God that we will be raptured before the plagues of the Book of Revelation befall the heathen on Earth.
With countless other “Last Days” signs occurring all around us in this generation, I am convinced that a national pandemic or global outbreak could begin any day now in the near future. Sadly, since most people in this nation and world are falling away from the Faith, fear and panic will grip many across the globe.
While most of the secular world will be seeking out every vaccine under the sun, to protect themselves from the plagues, believers need to follow the prescriptions given unto us by our Heavenly Physician. He has said that if we want to live healthy and safe in this world, and stay healthy and safe, then we need to:
Love the LORD with all of our heart, soul, and mind
Keep His Commandments
Repent of our sins
Get washed and covered in the Blood of Jesus Christ
Pray without ceasing
Trust in the LORD
Whether physical or spiritual illness, there is no better medicine in the world for all that ails the human race than faith in God. If you don’t have it, then you would be wise to FIND IT.
