Is COVID-19 A Sign We Are In The Tribulation?

Is COVID-19 A Sign We Are In The Tribulation?

Are We In The Tribulation?

As one might expect, conspiracy theorists have flooded the internet with crazy explanations of COVID-19 and the end times. Some have linked the epidemic to pestilence prophecies in Revelation about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse saying we are now in the 7-year Tribulation.

But not so fast!

God may be giving us a glimpse of the Tribulation Period, but we are not in the Tribulation Period. The Church is still here, the final empire hasn’t arrived and the important event of Antichrist and Israel signing the Peace Treaty, which marks the beginning of the Tribulation (Daniel 9:27), has not taken place.

What we can say is that we are seeing a convergence of signs, and they are a reminder we are getting closer to that last seven-year period.

A SHAKING AND A WAKING – AN END-TIME SHIFT?

A Shaking and

An End Time Shift?

Tim Buck – 3/26/2020

The world is in shock! But the question for bible believers is, “why are we surprised?”

Prophecy watchers have been warning people for years that end-time events could be shocking, even before the Rapture. We have let people know that Tribulation events would cast a shadow on the Church Age as God gears up to close the Church Age. We have talked about the “birth pangs” of the last days for decades.

God doesn’t shake the entire globe very often. He did during the time of Noah and at the Tower of Babel. There was a terrible plague in the 1300s and a pandemic in 1918. Two world wars took a stunning toll.

But now an unseen enemy—a virus, no less—has created fear-driven chaos, and some unknown factors are causing people to embrace a worst-case outlook for the world. At this time, we don’t know how this plays out. It certainly has apocalyptic implications.

Presidential proclamations aren’t doing the trick. There is going to be a mess to clean up since the world is in a meltdown, markets are crashing, economies are tanking, people are losing all stability, and lives are being lost.

Still, there is much that is puzzling! There’s something more at play here. The Swine Flu of 2009-2010 affected 61 million Americans yet produced little panic. Neither Barack Obama nor U.S. Governors stopped life as we know it back then. Sporting events went on, schools remained open, as did churches. Disneyland was not affected!

Fast-forward to 2020. Have you read the headlines… the sky is falling. It’s the end-of-the-world as we know it, even though most who get this new disease, Covid-19, will recover.

So, I have to ask if this is the crisis the globalists have waited for — or have their hand in — to make the world as one? Former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown is calling for a ‘Temporary Global Government’ to deal with COVID-19. But two men mess up their plans: Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu. Recently celebrities lauded John Lennon’s song “Imagine” which visualizes the world united with no religions. These people are wishful thinkers but that’s not happening.

I believe what we are witnessing with COVID-19 is an end-time shift. A clearer warning period about the greater disasters coming soon. God is stopping the world. It’s as if He’s screaming down from heaven saying, “look up here, pay attention, danger is just ahead!” In His grace and mercy He’s trying to get the world’s attention just as He did in Noah’s day before the flood. In that era, Noah preached righteousness for 120 years and no one listened.

Jesus warned about birth pains when He taught about the end times in His Olivet Discourse (Mt. 24-25). He specifically mentioned pestilence as a birth pain (Mt. 24:7; Lk. 21:11; Rev. 6:8).

I would describe this global pandemic as a wake-up call and precursor to the Tribulation birth pains; as is the great locust plague that is ravaging Africa and the Mideast; as is the large number of social uprisings in countries around the world; as is the appearance of the “last-days” people with their lying and immoral behavior, as is the increase in earthquake activity; as were the record-breaking Australian wild fires; as is the discovery of an asteroid headed toward earth; as is—you get the picture.

Birth pains increase in frequency and intensity until the moment of delivery. Which means, the moment of delivery is getting closer!

This particular birth pain is global which created world-wide unrest like we’ve never seen. In just a few months, the world is at a stand-still gripped by fear giving us a test-run for how fast things will go south after the Rapture.

Once the Tribulation begins, the prophet Daniel described it as coming on like a flood (Dan. 9:26). Within seven years, every unbeliever will either be dead or evicted off planet earth when Christ returns and it will be over. Done. Gone.

If one rapidly spreading virus can cause this type of global disruption, can you imagine how disruptive the Rapture will be when tens of millions go missing followed by 21 major judgments in a row with no let up? This is a pebble in the ocean compared to the day of God’s wrath that will rock the world to its core.

This is a test run so. A taste of the lightening speed of the Day of the Lord that’s coming. Billions are self-quarantined at this moment. It has shaken all earthly things. Sports, financial markets, distractions, hobbies, concerts, you name it—they’ve all been shut down.

Those things aren’t bad in themselves, but it’s as if God is removing any distractions for a moment in history to plead with the world again, ‘Look up! Look to me! This world is temporary. Think about eternal things. I love you. I died for you. Please don’t ignore me. Turn to me now while there is time.’”

What we see playing out before our eyes is a part of the predicted scenario. These things must happen. God is shaking the nations. They have been too consumed with pleasure to pay Him the least bit of attention but He reaches out in stunning fashion. The question is, how many more warnings like this are coming before the end?

We keep getting feedback that people who would never listen before are now asking questions. This is a time for a fearless church to speak truth to a fearful world who needs Jesus.

I trust that you are there with answers.

Trump Tasks Pence and Godly Leadership To Lead The Fight Against Coronavirus

Trump Tasks Pence and Godly Leadership To Lead The Fight Against Coronavirus

Here is a picture rarely seen in any Whitehouse of the past. These leaders of America are humbly seeking God in prayer. In the Trump Whitehouse, prayer is always welcome!

Trump Appoints Pence:

Tasks Godly Leadership To Fight Coronavirus

When the President appointed a coronavirus taskforce, many on the left complained that Vice President Pence was tapped to lead it.

They were verbal about their disdain for the fact that the Vice President, through prayer, sought God for solutions. They made fun of him and belittled Trump’s decision as an outrage!

However, as believers, isn’t this the approach we have been hoping for and want our leaders to take? I’m certain it is and that’s precisely why President Trump asked Mike Pence to head the task force.

Trump knew the left would scream and howl by appointing a man of prayer to head such an important taskforce.

The real reason President Trump asked Mike Pence is because he knows he’s someone who will seek God for supernatural solutions to the rising threat of COVID-19. We’ve never had a Whitehouse like this before, where the leaders of America seek God first! And we may never have one again!

God is bigger than our finite minds. We need to appeal to Him for Godly solutions for our nation. Approaching the throne of God, asking him for
answers, seeking mercy, wisdom, and direction is the kind of Godly leadership we have been praying for!

Turkey Launches All-Out Offensive Against Syria And Unleashes Storms Of Migrants Into Europe

TURKEY’S
DOUBLE-TROUBLE

Turkey launches All-Out Offensive Against Syria Killing and Wounding 2,557 Syrian Militia Forces.

Turkey Also Orders The Borders To Open Unleashing A Tidal Wave Of Syrian Migrant Mobs Into Greece As Army Deployed

Turkey Launches All-Out Assault on Assad Warplanes, Airfield in Syria

Turkish forces in Syria shot down two Syrian warplanes and attacked an airport used by the Syrian regime on Sunday, while a Turkish drone strike struck a Syrian military convoy and purportedly killed 19 soldiers.

Turkey is calling it ‘Operation Spring Shield‘, and it is nothing less than a declaration of war against Syria.

Turkey destroyed several air defense systems, more than 100 tanks and killed some 2,557 Syrian Militia Forces.

This is a dramatic escalation pitting NATO member Turkey against a far weaker Syrian Arab army backed by Russia.

It looks like President Trump wisely remains unwilling to get pulled into the middle of another Middle East War.

Erdogan seems to be acting with impunity as Putin in Russia is oddly silent. Putin placed two Russian warships with cruise missiles on the Syrian coast last week to defend against attacks like this.

I am sure that Prime Minister Netanyahu is watching Turkey very closely as Erdogan’s forces edge closer and closer to the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights.

Double Trouble

As Threatened,
Erdogan Also Unleashes Tidal Wave Of Islamist Refugees Into Europe

Turkey Orders The Borders To Open Unleashing A Tidal Wave Of Syrian Migrant Mobs Into Greece As Army Deployed

Migrant mobs have lit fires, hurled stones, and exchanged tear gas canisters with the Greek border guards.

Greece’s border had to be reinforced by military personnel, to stem the migrants efforts to breach the border and reach Europe.

Massive numbers of migrants have illegally entered the country successfully by searching for weak points along the border to ford the Evros river or by destroying sections of fencing with bolt cutters.

Turkey’s neighbor Greece was formerly part of the Ottoman Empire and is now in Erdogan’s sights, who wants it back!

Since prophecy indicates the return of the Ottoman Empire in the end times, the future of Greece is beginning to look rather dim.

Russia Sends Two Warships Armed With Cruise Missiles To Prevent Turkey From Launching Full-Scale Invasion Of Syria

Russia Sends Two Warships Armed With Cruise Missiles To Prevent Turkey From Launching Full-Scale Invasion Of Syria

Russia and Turkey are now facing off in Northern Syria in a potential explosive Middle East War.

Russia sends two warships armed with cruise missiles to prevent Turkey from launching full-scale invasion of Syria

Russia and Turkey Facing Off

Turkey has sent thousands of troops and heavy military hardware into Syria and Erdogan has warned that Turkey will launch a full-scale offensive to repel Syrian forces unless they pull back from Turkish observation posts in the region.

Though trying to coordinate their efforts in Syria, Russia backs Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, while Turkey backs Sunni Islamic rebel forces opposing Assad.

Russia on Friday said it was sending two warships armed with cruise missiles to waters off the Syrian coast and blamed Ankara for the killing of 33 Turkish soldiers in Syria’s Idlib region the previous day.

Russia at the moment is undergoing a delicate balancing act, trying to maintain relations with Turkey while at the same time trying to prevent them from invading Syria, where Russia is backing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Turkish president Erdogan is now warning that a full-scale invasion of Syria could be right around the corner in retaliation for the 33 Turkish fighters killed, something Russia is trying to prevent.

Turkey has sent thousands of troops and heavy military hardware into Syria and Erdogan has warned that Turkey will launch a full-scale offensive to repel Syrian forces unless they pull back from Turkish observation posts in the region.

In a worst case scenario for Europe, a senior Turkish official said on Friday that Ankara would no longer stop Syrian refugees from reaching Europe.

Turkey currently holds an estimated 3 million Syria refugees!

Turkey has been threatening to do this for years and if it happens it would spell disaster for Europe and possibly pull the United States into further involvement in this election year!!!

BREAKING NEWS: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Easily Wins Israel’s Election with 60-Seat Bloc Win Tonight

BREAKING NEWS: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Easily Wins Israel’s Election with 60-Seat Bloc Win Tonight

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu succeeded in winning 60 seats for his bloc of right-wing and religious parties in Monday’s election, one less than he needed for a majority in the Knesset, according to exit polls on the 3 TV networks.

Rousing Victory

The outright victory in the third election in under a year is expected to enable Netanyahu to quickly form a right-wing coalition after having headed a caretaker government since December 2018.

Netanyahu spoke to the heads of the parties in his camp immediately after the exit polls were announced and agreed to form a strong nationalist government as soon as possible.

Ahh, victory is surely sweet, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is drinking in his amazing defeat of Benny Gantz in an unprecedented third election in Israel today.

Obviously God has more yet to do with Netanyahu, and this win could be a harbinger of our upcoming November elections.

Pray for Israel, pray for Prime Minister Netanyahu and his family, because though he is relishing his victory tonight, tomorrow he will be once again face to face with his enemies who seek to do anything to get rid of him.

He faces a criminal trial on what seem to be unsubstantiated charges of corruption, not unlike the Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump on equally-weak charges. Pray that God will give Netanyahu the victory there as well.
