Is the Covid19 Virus Pandemic a Judgment from God?

First of all, God did not overtly orchestrate this Covid19 Pandemic as a judgment to punish the world or His people.  However, it is a judgment from God.  It is not the “wrath of God” that the Bible speaks about that is to come upon the world in the last time as the final judgment on the wicked.  I know some have said this is not a judgment of God and it comes from the devil.  Yes, it does comes from the devil, but our problem is we need to get a Biblical definition of what “the judgment of God” is in order to understand what is happening now.

Although judgment usually has an evil connotation to it (the execution of the penalty for sin), it also has a positive side. Judgment has to do with the sowing and reaping process. This is defined in Galatians 6:7-9  “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

From this we can see that the negative side of judgment is that evil reaps destruction, while on the positive side; good that is sown through Jesus is rewarded. God’s judgment on evil is seen by the curse that is on wicked men. While God’s judgment for the righteous will manifest in His blessings and rewards on them. This is true for individuals as well as nations. Negative judgments have been hanging over our nation for some time because of the many sins that we have corporately committed.  Now we are reaping the fruit of our national sins.

Romans 6:23  “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

As a nation (the USA where I live) we have sown good and evil.  I believe God has been gracious and merciful to us because we have reached out to help the other nations of the world.   The church has sent many missionaries around the world.  Christians in this nation have supported many missionary works, while Christians and others have supported humanitarian works in every nation. The United States government has poured billions of dollars into foreign aid and forgiven billions of dollars of indebtedness to other countries. We are one of the first on the scene to arrive with aid and assistance when natural disasters, such as earthquakes, strike other countries. America has helped the oppressed and poor of other nations.  She has helped rebuild infrastructures, railways, etc. after nations have been ravaged by war. I could name many more, but this should suffice.

As a nation, we have also sown much evil. We have exported our ungodly music, movies, pornography, tobacco, alcohol.  Our tobacco companies cannot sell their wares to the young people in our nation, but they are allowed to export it to the youth of other nations. We have been hypocritical in calling ourselves a Christian nation when we allow abortion. Many Americans are drug addicts, and are consumed with pornography and vile movies.  We commit adultery without blushing and are sex-crazed. I have noticed that the most prevalent types of ads that daily come across the Internet are ads pertaining to sex and money. They are selling something pertaining to sex, ads that tell you how to become a millionaire so we can live indulgent lives. There are those that encourage gambling, as a means to obtain wealth quickly, instead of pursuing wealth by honest work. They are trying to take a shortcut to obtaining wealth.  We export our vices instead of being a good example to the world.  Sharing Christ with other nations is difficult when they see our lust and materialism.

How to Not Be Deceived

Deception in the End Times

Deception in the End Times: How to Keep from Being Deceived

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:3-5).

Jesus was asked some very important questions by his disciples and among them was, “What shall be the sign of his coming and the end of the world?” From His answer we can deduce that the most important sign of his coming is a warning that deception will be prevalent in the earth and especially religious deception and that we, as Christians, must be on guard that we are not deceived by other men. This being the case, we need to understand what to look for and also know how we can be deceived.

The Perfect Storm of End Time Events is Coming Soon

Jesus Calms the Storm

Are You Ready to Overcome These 12 End Time Events?

By Betty Miller

The Perfect Storm of End Time Events is rapidly lining up on the horizon. Are you ready? First, let me say at the beginning of this article, that I am not writing this article as a prophetess of God, but rather as a watchman on the wall sounding an alarm. What do I mean by this? I am like a reporter or a weatherman warning of a storm coming, because of the signs that are seen in the sky.

 “And he (Jesus) said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is. And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass. Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?” Luke 12:54-56

A watchman on the wall is one, who in prayer, is watching and praying for people during these perilous times.

“If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand. So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.”  Ezekiel 33:3-7

Below is a list of 12 events on the horizon that could trigger the unfolding of a Perfect Storm of End Time Events. (I have purposely not expounded on these subjects individually for brevity’s sake, but if you would like more about any of these subjects, I have linked to the detailed teachings on those subjects on our website and you can find information about the others on the Internet.) Any one of these events could trigger the domino effect that will set in motion events that cannot be stopped by any man and can only be survived through God’s intervention:

Warning of Deceit by Men

Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

Deception in the End Times: Danger of Being Deceived by Men

In Matthew 24, Jesus responded to the questions that the disciples asked of Him pertaining to “what would be the sign of his coming and the end of the world” with a warning that deception would be prevalent in the earth, especially religious deception.  His words warned us of the danger of being deceived by men. This being the case, we need to understand what to look for and also we should be aware of how we can be deceived.

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:3-5).

Revelation and End Times

End-Times According to the Book of Revelation

Deception in the End Times: Revelation and End Times Interpretations

There are many different interpretations regarding the End Times spoken of in the Bible. The book of Revelation is an important book regarding the future, but one must have the proper biblical method of interpretation and a relationship with Christ in order to understand it.

Decoding the Book of Revelation

Revelation is a coded book. It was written for Christians so that only they could understand it and those that were not in the faith would not be able to understand it. When John, the apostle, penned this revelation of Jesus Christ, the Christians of that day were under great persecution and therefore their lives could have been more endangered by what John wrote, therefore much of the book is written in symbolic language. Those who do not have the Holy Spirit are bewildered by the imagery in this book of the Bible. Even as Christians we have difficulty when approaching Revelation.

How do we understand its code? The Bible interprets itself,
