But not if you ask Christian writers and pastors who have spent years focusing their message on the Book of Revelation — the New Testament’s final book. It lays out a lurid, poetic vision of the End Times, in which many evangelical leaders interpret it to mean that Jesus will return to Earth, believers will be raptured to heaven and those left behind will suffer seven dreadful years of calamities. Most of these Revelation-focused prophesiers don’t see coronavirus as heralding the Second Coming and the end of life on Earth as we know it.
You can understand why many might see this time of fast-encroaching disease, isolation from loved ones and crashing stock markets as apocalyptic. They are primed to believe the end of the world might arrive any day now. In 2010, 41 percent told Pew Research Center that they expected Jesus to return by 2050.
Revelation 6:8, forecasts deaths all over the globe “by sword, famine and plague,” and Jesus’ words about the events before the end times in Luke 21:11: “There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.”
The Bible is very specific about what will happen before the End Times, and those events haven’t all unfolded yet. For one major thing, the ancient temple in Jerusalem is supposed to be rebuilt first.
There have been many pandemics in world history, and none of them have been a token of an approaching apocalypse.
The coronavirus is not a sign of the End Times, but a good opportunity for reflection on what to believe will come. “This might be a trial run to see how we respond to calamity and hardship. If we’re shaken now, how are we going to react when it really gets wild?”.
LOVERS OF PLEASURE MORE THAN GOD
PEOPLE WILL BE COVETOUS
PEOPLE WILL BE BOASTERS AND PROUD
CHILDREN DISOBEDIENT TO PARENTS
PEOPLE WILL BE UNTHANKFUL
PEOPLE WILL BE UNHOLY
PEOPLE WILL BE WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION
DESPISERS OF THOSE THAT ARE GOOD
PEOPLE WILL BE LOVERS OF THEMSELVES
There are still some things yet to happen that end time prophecy reveals, like the mark of the beast being enforced. And once the mark of the beast is enforced, we will know that we are in the VERY last days, right at the end of the world.
But please do not wait until that happens to get ready.
Besides, God gives you the opportunity to have a life full of peace and joy, right now.
Just read the bible to find out how.
All you have to do is realize the truth.
Honestly, he's dying to bless you. (Jesus did die for you)
Think about it.
He invented you. He would LOVE to bless you to have everlasting life.
