Coronavirus: Pestilence, Prophecy, and a Philanthropist

on March 22, 2020

coronavirus_

Preface: Although this is a lengthy read, I wanted to cover various angles of the pandemic we find ourselves in. It is not fair to bring people’s names and/or politics into the mix unless it coorelates – which it does. As you read, you will see the proverbial ‘plot thicken’. Although Coronavirus is a real and devastating disease, there is more to it than meets the eye. This blog is also not a racial issue against people of Chinese/Asian origin. The following blog is intended to bring clarity, eye-opening information, and to offer peace amidst chaos. It is my goal to present a biblically-based, factually-based blog and not branch out into unconfirmed notions.  

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
~The words of Jesus, in John 16:33

At the time of this writing, our entire world is in the throes of the Coronavirus pandemic, also known as COVID-19 (I may use the terms interchangeably). Never in our generation has there been such an event that has forced worldwide restrictions, job loss, and closings on such a mass scale. There is also a shortage of the basic necessities and conveniences which so many are accustomed to. Grocery stores are struggling to keep the shelves stocked with paper goods, cleaning products, and food. It seems that our entire world was turned upside-down in just a few short weeks.

COVID-19 took many of us (not all – as discussed later) by surprise. But God was not shocked by this, nor did it strip Him of His power. His word and His promises are still very much true. Nothing can nullify His word.

Before we begin, let’s be sure of one thing: Although certain tribulations happen and are permitted as part of a divine plan, God is not the author of evil, darkness, or confusion (see 1st John 1:5, 1st Cor. 14:33).

Coronavirus Foretold by Jesus?

Mockers of Christianity and the Bible wrongly argue that the scriptures are, at best, historical text only and have no bearing on our lives today. However, that notion could not be further from the truth. Allow me to expound.

You see, Jesus’ words which He spoke while here on earth are still relevant today. Not only is His wisdom and promises true, but we find His predictions for the future are coming true right before our eyes.

One such prediction is in regards to what our world is seeing nowadays. Some 2,000 years after His words were spoken, we see them coming true! Let’s look at what Jesus foretold about the pandemic we find ourselves in today.

In Matthew 24 (and also echoed in Luke 21), Jesus’ disciples asked Him what would be the sign of His coming and of the end of the world. They knew He would return to earth a second time but they did not know when; would it be a few years or would it be far into the future? They wanted to know the hints and signs to look for, should it happen in their lifetime. Although Jesus told them the signs to look for, we find ourselves seeing what He foretold.

He spoke of many end times signs to look for – one of which was pestilences. Jesus said, “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.” Although we can see how easily a famine, (scarcity of food) could happen during the Coronavirus, let’s pay special attention to this word, “pestilences“.

What is a pestilence?

The original scriptural text we are looking at was written in Greek. The Greek word for pestilences is “loimos” which means, “a plague; disease”.

The dictionary defines pestilence as a deadly or virulent epidemic disease; something that is considered harmful, destructive, or evil.”  The origin of the word “virulent” is taken from “Middle English verulent < Latin vīrulentus, equivalent to vīr(us) poison.”

By this, we can safely say that Jesus did, indeed, predict viruses of epic proportions as a sign of the end times. And here it is, folks… Coronavirus!

It is crystal clear that this virus is a subtle yet loud wake-up call to show that these are the beginning of sorrows which must take place. By God’s mercy, we have all been duly warned to BE READY and make sure that our souls are safe with Jesus.

This warning holds no fear for Christians; and yes, God gives the world ample warnings as shown repeatedly throughout scriptural history. We can stand before our Judge with no fear of negative consequences. If you detect fear arising in your heart at these warnings, please take the time to search your soul and cry out to Jesus for salvation. He will give you a calm assurance if you are one of His children.

coronavirus_(1)

Furthermore, it is highly plausible that this may also be a sign of God’s judgment for mankind’s escalating sin. In 2nd Peter 2, we learn how God punishes sin and how he delivers the righteous. Since God did not even spare the angels who sinned (now demons) — and since God did not spare the ancient world who sinned, (only righteous Noah and his family); and since God did not spare the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah for their sin of sexual misconduct/sodomy (but delivered Lot, who was righteous), then how could the sinful world today expect otherwise? Nonetheless, we see that God also knows how to deliver the righteous.   

God is just but He is also merciful for those who turn from sin. For an example (one of many), let’s consider his admonition to Israel: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land(2nd Chron. 7:14).

Be Prepared

The end could happen when we least expect it; much like the Coronavirus was unexpected. That’s why it’s important for us to be watchful and prepared to meet our Maker. Wasn’t it shocking to see how quickly our world turned upside-down? Likewise, it will be shocking, to many, how quickly Jesus can and will return someday.

Jesus admonishes us to be watchful. He said, “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of man cometh” (Matthew 24:42-44).

Jesus also said, “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:32-35). Remember, Jesus said when we see “all these things” happen that His coming is near. Please reference Matthew 24 to see what this entails (one of which is pestilences).

By this, we can take confidence in Jesus’ accurate words and scripture holding true in all other instances. This is a fright for the sinner but a comfort for the Christian.

Political Response to COVID-19

The Expositor’s Greek Testament, a commentary on the Bible, says that “famines and pestilences [are] the usual accompaniments of war.” Incidentally, the President of the United States, Donald Trump, posted a message in regards to the Coronavirus, writing: “The world is at war with a hidden enemy. WE WILL WIN!”

Trump

President Trump’s message could have multiple meanings, some of which (or none of which) he intended. Nonetheless, his statement reminded me that there is a hidden enemy, and perhaps, a hidden agenda behind the Coronavirus. The enemy is an evil spiritual force, with Satan at the helm.

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.” ~Acts 2:17

In the book, The Vision and Beyond (published in 2003), the late David Wilkerson of Times Square Church writes in regards to calamities coming upon the earth. He wrote:

“…Can any of this [calamity] be avoided? Yes! Absolutely! I believe we will be given a reprieve if our [U.S.] President proves to be a Josiah. You may well remember Josiah as the king who sought the Lord with all his heart. We all should pray that God would give our President the same spirit that Josiah had; to tremble at His Word.”

The Lord spoke the following to Josiah:

“Thus says the Lord: ‘Behold, I will bring calamity on this place and on its inhabitants—all the words of the book which the king of Judah has read—because they have forsaken Me and burned incense to other gods, that they might provoke Me to anger with all the works of their hands. Therefore My wrath shall be aroused against this place and shall not be quenched.’ But as for the king of Judah, who sent you to inquire of the Lord, in this manner you shall speak to him, ‘Thus says the Lord God of Israel: Concerning the words which you have heard— because your heart was tender, and you humbled yourself before the Lord when you heard what I spoke against this place and against its inhabitants, that they would become a desolation and a curse, and you tore your clothes and wept before Me, I also have heard you,’ says the Lord. ‘Surely, therefore, I will gather you to your fathers, and you shall be gathered to your grave in peace; and your eyes shall not see all the calamity which I will bring on this place.’ So they brought back word to the king.” (2 Kings 22:16-20)

Wilkerson continues, “God told the king, in essence, ‘as long as you’re in power, trembling at my word and relying on me, you won’t see the judgments to come. They won’t happen during your reign’. I believe our window of opportunity to respond to God’s call is brief. We all should pray that our nation repents and turns back to the Lord, but our most intense prayers should be for our own hearts.”

No matter your political affiliation, we need God to guide our leaders’ decisions which directly impact us. Whether you are in the United States or another country, the most important thing the Christian can do is to pray for our leaders.  Let us humble ourselves to pray amidst this pestilence.

A Painful Prophecy

COVID-19, a biblically-prophesied pestilence, is a sign of the end times and the beginning of sorrows which must take place before Christ’s return.

We can liken this pandemic to an early, mild contraction for a woman in labor. A lot of suffering and pain has to happen before she can deliver her precious child. The pain will heighten in intensity and frequency as she gets closer to delivering. Likewise, much suffering and pain has to happen since the earth, as it were, is groaning through birth pains (see Romans 8:22). After all is said and done, Christians will be delivered as Heaven will deliver Jesus to us, for His triumphant return to earth!

Jesus stated: “A woman, when she is in travail, hath sorrow because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy, no man taketh from you” (John 16:21-22).

In the Disguise of Philanthropy

This section, and the ones to follow, will be very revealing. There is so much in-depth information that it was needful to shorten (believe it or not, this is the ‘short’ version). However, I will have links provided throughout and at the bottom of this post. This section is intended to get us thinking about the grand scheme of things. It will soon become apparent why this section is very necessary.

Firstly, let’s define the word, ‘philanthropy’. The dictionary defines it as follows:

“altruistic concern for human welfare and advancement, usually manifested by donations of money, property, or work to needy persons, by endowment of institutions of learning and hospitals, and by generosity to other socially useful purposes.”

It would appear a Philanthropist would be a very admirable, noble person with pure motives – but is this always the case? Also, what does this have to do with the Coronavirus pandemic? And could this pandemic lead to the mark of the beast, defined in biblical prophecy? Allow me to explain…

Bill Gates, former CEO and co-founder of Microsoft (a big name in computer technology), just recently stepped down from the Microsoft board. The press release announcing his decision took place in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, citing his wishes to “dedicate more time to his philanthropic priorities.”

forbes

So, how is this news related to COVID-19? Is this news something prophetic? And what does ‘666’ have to do with it? Let’s search a bit deeper into this seemingly unrelated event. Allow me to lay some groundwork…

Gates and his wife, Melinda, are the Founders of The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation who fund partners worldwide. Namely, the Foundation’s ‘Global Health Division’ develops “new tools and strategies” for healthcare and infectious disease in poor countries. They “…work with partners that can help to affect change globally, and then scale solutions to a local level” by developing “vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics.”  (See my post, “Vaccines: A Moral Issue?”

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation also provides health solutions for “family planning” (which includes abortion). Not surprisingly, Bill Gates’ father, a retired lawyer, served on the boards of many organizations; one of which was Planned Parenthood (an abortion clinic). Aborted fetuses can be used in vaccines and for vaccine research. Furthermore, abortion also serves as a form of population control. Vaccines and population control are both heavily supported by Bill Gates. After the Coronavirus outbreak, Bill Gates said, “The world also needs to accelerate work on treatments and vaccines for COVID-19.”

In an article by Ethan Huff, he wrote: “As is usually the case with suspicious disease outbreaks that get the media and academia talking about new vaccines and public-private partnerships, Bill Gates’ fingerprints are almost always hiding in the background. And this is exactly the case with coronaviruses, which could accomplish many of Gates’ expectations for the future, including mass depopulation, mass vaccination and mass consolidation of government power.”  At first glance, such claims seem scathing towards Bill Gates. However, after careful research, they are not outlandish whatsoever, as we will discover.

‘Predicting’ Pandemic?

The first case of COVID-19 in the world, didn’t occur until November 17, 2019. However, in a 2018 article in the New England Journal of Medicine, Bill Gates advocated strongly for quarantine and ‘predicted’ a future pandemic which may be a novel respiratory virus (exactly what COVID-19 is).

Interestingly, there was also an event with the Johns Hopkins Center in October 2019 (a month before the first Coronavirus case) called, “Event 201“. This invitation-only event was designed to discuss how to handle a global pandemic, envisioning a fast-spreading coronavirus. And, yes… this event was in collaboration with The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

jhu

This is from the Johns Hopkins website. Notice the name ‘coronavirus’ under the headline. Also, take note of the date of this article. The first case of coronavirus wasn’t until November 17, 2019 — this article is dated for November 6, 2019 and speaks of the event which took place the prior month, in October.

Most so-called ‘fact check’ websites blatantly lie and twist words to protect Bill Gates. But if we simply go to the source, as I did, we find his words typed in black and white (on his own websites, in many cases).

What are the odds of Gates predicting a “novel respiratory virus” and of his Foundation collaborating on an event for a “coronavirus global pandemic exercise” before it ever occurred? This would sound much like a conspiracy theory if it weren’t true. Let the dates of his ‘predictions’ speak for themselves. Could it be that he knew something going on (behind the scenes) in advance?

“For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known. Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops.” ~Luke 12:1-2

Let’s take a look at something else quite eyebrow-raising. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation also donates funds to Pirbright Institute, whose mission is to “prevent and control viral diseases of livestock and those that spread from animals to people.”  This Institute also specializes in pandemic control, genetic engineering (altering genes), and they have a patent on Coronavirus.

In a recent press release, Pirbright Institute evaded the truth by saying, “The Pirbright Institute carries out research on infectious bronchitis virus (IBV), a coronavirus that infects poultry, and porcine deltacoronavirus that infects pigs. Pirbright does not currently work with human coronaviruses.” While this statement may be partially true, it is misleading. They claim the Coronavirus they study is only in regards to animals; however, there are two problems with this statement.

1.) Their mission statement (as notated above) would suggest otherwise.

2.) Their patent on the Coronavirus does, indeed, mention human Coronavirus.

pirbright

Screenshot from Pirbright Institute’s coronavirus patent (page 40) where it does, indeed, research human coronavirus vaccine (which their press release denied).

This patent PCT was originally filed in 2015 and the patent was granted November 20, 2018; one year before the first case of COVID-19. Funds from The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation were then given in late 2019. Pirbright Institute claims these funds were not for the Coronavirus patented work but for ‘The Livestock Antibody Hub’. Given Pirbright’s obvious trickery of words (as proven above) and admitted ties to Bill Gates — well, let’s just say this could merit some suspicion. Furthermore, we can verify through the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) that animal studies and animal products are used in human vaccines; and that funding given by the Gates’ was part of the ‘One Health‘ agenda (think, one-world government/new world order, as we will discover in the next few paragraphs).

Globalization: Setting the Stage for 666

Globalization is simply another term to describe worldwide integration of a particular system. It’s drive is to make everything uniform across all nations of the world. Examples of this could be to have only one global currency, instead of several (such as the US Dollar, the British Pound, Japanese Yen, etc.). Likewise, globalization could be integrated to create a one world government or a new way in which the world operates (New World Order).

If globalization is to succeed, it is important to have the ability to track every human on the globe. People are far easier to track if they are stationary (as in quarantine), yet, it can be done in other ways such as digital identification. We already see family pets being microchipped, so this concept is not so far-fetched.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we find globalization taking effect in its infancy forms; almost as a ‘practice run’ or a ‘drill’ for what is to come. Globally, certain restrictions are mandated and enforced by the governments.

We also learn that Microsoft, whose co-founder is Bill Gates, is a founding partner of the ID2020 Alliance. This alliance is working to create implantable digital IDs to track vaccine compliance (Coronavirus vaccine reasearch and a vaccine is being fast-tracked, as we speak – but what will be injected into us??). The digital ID would also be able to track human identity, location, and much more. The name “ID2020” is quite interesting, given that the Coronavirus pandemic prompting a “better way” heightened in the year 2020 — just some food for thought.

Nonetheless, their goal for this “fundamental human right” (as they call it) is to have everyone on the globe marked within a decade, at the latest. In order to ensure global compliance, the ID2020 Alliance is going to make this mark mandatory in order to receive essential services such as healthcare, education, voting rights, banking, and more.

“He [the Beast] causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.” ~Revelation 13:16-18

The concept of the ID2020 Alliance Digital ID is not a fly-by-night conspiracy theory. On their official website, it states: “In September of 2015, all United Nations member states adopted to the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, including their committment to provide legal identity for all, including birth registration by 2030.” And yes, 5G data will play a vital role in the ID2020 Alliance’s goals due to the expanding broadband coverage to facilitate registration, interaction, and personal data collection. Incidentally, Bill Gates once proposed to track newborns and vaccinations through cell phone technology.

Gates believes, “…the world also needs to invest in disease surveillance, including a case database that is instantly accessible to the relevant organizations and rules that require countries to share their information.”

An interesting and disturbing photo of a crucifix on the wall at an ID2020 Alliance gathering. This screenshot was taken directly from their website (ID2020.org).

We can see how easily and rapidly the Coronavirus pandemic caused unprecedented changes and restrictions globally. This pandemic, in my opinion, will be the catalyst to push the agenda of an implantable microchip; all in the name of “better healthcare, vaccine compliance, virus tracking, and human rights.” Globalization (a New World Order) must happen before ID2020 will work.

David Rockafeller once said, “All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.” Is it a mere coincidence that The Rockafeller Foundation provides funding and ongoing support for the ID2020 agenda and is an alliance partner with them? Is it a mere coincidence that our world is now, indeed, in a major crisis?

Bible teacher, Irvin Baxter, recently stated: “The Bible prophesies that the Antichrist will ultimately reign over this world government for three-and-one-half years just prior to the Second Coming of Jesus to establish His own world government… The World Bank, the World Trade Organization, the World Health Organization—all of these powerful world institutions are exactly what they say they are. They are all components of the one-world government, the world government prophesied for the endtime 2,000 years ago.” (see Rev. 13:3-7, Dan. 7:23).

Was the timing of Bill Gates stepping down from his position at Microsoft, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, any coincidence? What’s more, Microsoft Corporation is also a private sector supporter of The National Bureau of Asian Research. This Bureau conducts “advanced independent research on strategic, political, economic, globalization, health and energy issues affecting U.S. relations with Asia.” Wasn’t the first case of COVID-19 in an Asian country? Hasn’t COVID-19 suddenly appeared in the U.S. and globally? Could this be something political? Senator Joe Lieberman is a counselor for the Bureau, as well.

As if we can’t already see the writing on the wall, The National Bureau of Asian Research updated their Facebook cover photo in February 2020 reading, “China’s Vision for a New World Order”. I can’t make this stuff up!!

Global Depopulation

Before we look briefly into the concept of global depopulation by way of pandemics, I want to make an observation. The U.S. national census so happened to be in 2020, amidst the chaos of COVID-19. The census is mandatory by law and accounts for all people living within the nation.

I also feel that “an enemy is afoot” with this worldwide pandemic. Yes, it was prophesied by Jesus and we were warned of evil forces at work. It is my belief that this attack was not accidental or happenstance. Perhaps, that is what President Trump means by a “hidden enemy” or “invisible enemy”.  It seems to be apparent to me that there was a lot going on behind the scenes, setting the stage for this outbreak, which very few knew about. The goal of such demonic forces is pure evil and, largely, due to greed.

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
~1 Timothy 6:10

You see, with global depopulation, it is easier to track less people. And, less people means less resources which means more money. Thus, Bill Gates’ drive to bring ‘healthcare’. He said: “…the good news is, that the faster we improve health, the faster family size goes down, and so we can feel great about saving those lives.”  Even China, in recent history, mandated a one-child policy (for a time) to control ‘over-population’ – where couples were only allowed to have one child.

Justice Is Coming

But don’t worry, there will ultimately be justice given by God. Psalm 9:15 states: “The nations have sunk down in the pit which they made; In the net which they hid, their own foot is caught.”

Likewise, Hebrews 10:30-37 states: “For we know Him who said, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord. And again, ‘The Lord will judge His people.’ It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. But recall the former days in which, after you were illuminated, you endured a great struggle with sufferings: partly while you were made a spectacle both by reproaches and tribulations, and partly while you became companions of those who were so treated; for you had compassion on me in my chains, and joyfully accepted the plundering of your goods, knowing that you have a better and an enduring possession for yourselves in heaven. Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:“For yet a little while, And He who is coming will come and will not tarry.”

As the Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary so aptly puts it… on the Day of Judgment, the judgments will not be “ecclesiastical or political but personal, not temporal but eternal—when all safety and blessedness will be found to lie in being able to ‘Stand before the Son of Man’ in the glory of His personal appearing.”

What COVID-19 Can’t Do

Although we make wise decisions and do our part, let’s not forget that COVID-19 is not all-powerful. God is greater. This pandemic is limited in many ways, some of which are listed below.

Coronavirus/COVID-19 can NOT destroy the soul
Coronavirus/COVID-19 can NOT usurp God’s authority
Coronavirus/COVID-19 can NOT scare God away
Coronavirus/COVID-19 can NOT steal our salvation
Coronavirus/COVID-19 can NOT make us stop loving
Coronavirus/COVID-19 can NOT chase angels away
Coronavirus/COVID-19 can NOT alter God’s promises
Coronavirus/COVID-19 can NOT loosen God’s grip on us

 

Provision Amidst Chaos 

“I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” ~Psalm 37:25

Amidst the personal loss of income for many, due to COVID-19, God still knows what we have need of and how to provide our needs (see Matt 6:32). Just as God provided food for the widow (see 1st Kings 17) and finances in times of need (see Matt. 17), likewise, God will not forsake those of us who belong to Him and seek Him (see Matt. 6:25-34).

dw

Yet, please remember… sorrows permitted in the world are designed to mercifully warn mankind of a far worse judgment to come for sinners. The true Christian need not fear.

“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” (Luke 21:28).

Peace and Protection Amidst Chaos

Amidst the chaos of COVID-19, God still knows how to bring peace to our hearts. Philippians 4:7 says, “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

“Those who will not hear the messengers of peace, shall be made to hear the messengers of war. But where the heart is fixed, trusting in God, it is kept in peace, and is not afraid. It is against the mind of Christ, that His people should have troubled hearts, even in troublous times… If God opens a door of escape, we ought to make our escape, otherwise we do not trust God, but tempt Him. It becomes Christ’s disciples, in times of public trouble, to be much in prayer: that is never out of season, but in a special manner seasonable when we are distressed on every side. Though we must take what God sends, yet we may pray against sufferings…” ~Matthew Henry

Fear is a symptom… it lets us know that we are not secure in trusting God’s ability to take care of us. However, do not feel condemned if you fear; rather, resolve to conquer fear through knowing that you are loved and cared for perfectly by the Lord. “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love (1st John 4:18).

Some wonderful scriptures of comfort for us to pray over ourselves and our loved ones is Psalm 34:7, 2nd Timothy 1:7, John 16:33, Deuteronomy 31:8, Romans 8, the 23rd Psalm, and the 91st Psalm.

As long as our soul is protected, that is what matters. Don’t fear that which can only kill the body but not soul. No virus or scheme of man can pluck us out of God’s hand or make His ear become deaf to our cries.

As I’ve referenced The Vision and Beyond book in this blog, allow me to close with the words of the author, David Wilkerson. He said, “God has not promised to keep His children from suffering. He has not promised to keep us from facing an hour of need. We have no promise of world peace, tranquility, security, or continuous financial well-being. We are promised peace and security of soul and mind, supernatural provision for every true need, and assurance that we would never have to beg for bread…”

He continues, “God is suddenly going to deliver His true children from his final fury that will be outpoured upon the earth. He will deliver His children from the most gruesome hour of disaster that the Bible predicts will fall upon the earth. Prepared Christians, wake up! Everything is under control and God is at work…”

    Holy wow, Maranda. While I am not fearful of this earthly life I live, because this is not my home, this post was enlightening. I too believe God. God loves, yes, but God also has a plan and His Word clearly tells us what is in store. God does not lie. I know that many who might read this could see this as conspiracy theory and crazy Christian rhetoric, but I see your post as a proclamation of the truth. You are a modern day John the Baptist acting on the prompt from the Holy Spirit to to speak to the lost. Stay strong and keep sharing. You definitely know what your gifts are and are using them.
