Topic: End of the Age
As the Coronavirus is spreading over the world, people are starting to preparing for the worse. Look at the news, there are thousands of people already have effected and some of them already have died due to Coronavirus. Even though the news media said that they are helping us to prepare for the worst, their reports don't seem to be encouraging to us to overcome this global health issues. It's all negative reports and some are informative that could help us to avoid this disease.
Who we could turn to during the global crisis? Beginning Revelation 6 we see that Gods judgments would pour upon the earth. There are three sets of 7 judgments that the earth must go through before the millennium years would begin.
Revelation 6 predicted that there would be horsemen appear that would make many global crises throughout the earth. Read verse 8: "And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth." Is this verse sound familiar? We see that many people have suffered through violence, health issues, and food. Is this horseman talking about the current global pandemic crisis? I believe that our generation continues to see and experience the birth pain of God's wrath before there will be the global peace through Jesus Christ. The Bible also said that we, as believers in Christ, will rule the earth with Him.
So, what we can do now?
1) Rely and trust in Jesus. He is the answer to all of our problems. We have gone astray from God for a very long time. Now, we are suffering for it. Even though He didn't create Coronavirus for us to suffer, we put our trust in government and politic to face some consequences. If you are a bible student or student of the biblical prophecy, you will find out what the government is doing may not be beneficial to us.
2) Don't just hear the reports from the news medias. Even though we can find out what's going on the world now through the media source, they may not tell us the whole truth. Do we know why Donald Trump have received so many criticisms since he entered into the White House? Do we know why the previous president received several honors while he turned this nation upside down?
Americans decided to let God go and going with our desires. We decided to follow the system of this world and the darkness took over this nation. Morality has gone. Children cannot draw anything that is related to Christianity in the art classroom. Now, children are confused with their identities and let them to choose their own gender rather than accepting who they really are. Did God make mistake? If He is, why they are here? It is impossible that they can choose their own identity before coming out from mothers' wombs. God said in Jeremiah 1:5, "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations." If we'd reject God as Creator, we are saying that we are gods; we don't have beginning and end. And come with another critical question: Who created us?
If we focus on Jesus, there is no weapon formed against us (Isaiah 54:17). Paul said in Romans 8:38-39, "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
I believe that this Coronavirus is another awakening call from God, even though this disease was from the man. Every global event is leading us into the day of glory where we will see the returning of Jesus to judge this world and bring us back to rule the world with Him. In the meantime, time is ticking into the global national disasters, which it will lead into the final stage of World War III.
Are you ready when Jesus would return to take His people to His kingdom? Are you ready to face against the enemy with Him? We are in a war zone now. Even though all the nations are going crazy, we are in a spiritual battle that against the real enemy, Satan. This generation will end soon, but God is patiently waiting for you to be on a board with Him. He does not want to lose you forever.
Are you saved? Are your love ones and friends saved in the grace of God through Jesus Christ? As Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms, if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." (John 14:1-3.)
If you don't know who Jesus is or if you are lukewarm in your relationship with Jesus Christ, please consider asking Him to forgive your sins and invite Him into your life. Paul says, "That if you confess with your mouth, `Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believed and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." (Romans 10:9-10.) If you have done in your private room or workplace, then you need to tell to your friends or love ones about what you have done, so they may rejoice with you and want to have that relationship with Christ in their own life. There are many religious groups in the world, which do not know the love of God and His great plan for those who believe in Him. As it is written in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
