In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, I think it is appropriate for us to analyze the behavior and response of our politicians, doctors, and scientists. We also must look at our own behavior in response to this crisis. We will then discover there is a great Bible lesson to be found within all of this.
Our politicians, doctors, and scientists are looked up too with great admiration by many people. They wear suits, make lots of money and are considered to be some of the brightest people on the planet. After all, we trust them to make decisions in the best interest of the people. Yes, that includes our politicians. If my statement was not true, we would not be so eager to argue over which political party is best. We would not be so eager to vote for those placed before us, instead, we would question the system.
These bright minds, along with the mainstream media have told us our world which was just fine two weeks ago, has now fallen apart. Despite the fact the Coronavirus has a kill rate of just 2%, merely double the seasonal flu, the world has now begun to shut down.
Governments around the world are passing new policies and enforcing restrictions on their citizens over the Coronavirus pandemic. We are even seeing entire countries locked down, decisions made by the brightest minds, all based on fear and panic, (Italy, Spain, France). This has caused record high stock markets to plummet in the last two weeks. Regular people are now losing their 401ks, stocks, bonds and so on. The trouble is all blamed on the Coronavirus, which kills just twice as many people as the seasonal cold and flu.
Economically speaking, nothing has changed.
Weeks ago we had all the same economic indicators, the companies had all the same financial numbers. The only thing that changed was fear and panic was placed before us due to the Coronavirus. As an example, the U.S. Government is telling its citizens to practice “social distancing”, stay away from other people. This has caused even more panic, and the mainstream media is extending that fear even more. This new policy is beginning to shutter more businesses as we see many state and local governments shut down nursing homes, schools, bars, and restaurants.
Now, what can we learn Biblically from all of this?
We learned that due to the spread of news, and rash decisions by those in charge, that our world can change overnight. We have witnessed the most intelligent people in the world, heads of state, doctors and scientists speak and act out of fear. Some of these people did react reasonably in the beginning, but after the mainstream media pumped the crisis with more fear and panic, and because politicians have to play political games they stopped thinking, the very definition of “panic”. While they should have known better, they came to accept the fear placed before them. Following their example, many of us have begun to follow in their footsteps…
My friends, this all ties into the End Times.
One day, Satan who is the Antichrist will appear on earth claiming to be God. A lot of Christians know and understand that, they do. However, the mainstream media along with those intelligent heads of state, doctors and scientists will within days if not instantly become convinced Satan is God.
They will all believe Satan and his angels to be the Kingdom of Jesus Christ and His Angels, but it is a lie.
The lie will spread so far and wide no one will be able to escape it. It will be on every television set, website, and smartphone. It will be impressed into our mind over and over again, and people will be thoroughly convinced Satan is God.
What will you believe?
I know many of you are saying, “Oh Brandon, but I am ready for that day.”
Turn your Bible with me to,
And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
This head is the Sixth Head of the Beast which is a government system, (see: The Sixth Kingdom). This Sixth Head is in power today and reigns over our world, though it is not solidified. One day, it will be this same Sixth Head that receives a Deadly Wound.
That is when the Antichrist will appear on earth to help us out, and save our world. Satan will suck up to us, and impress us like never before. But that is not all, there is much more.
And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
The Antichrist, the Dragon who is Satan will put on these great miracles and wonders just for you and me, (Revelation 12:9). His job is to make you believe he is God.
Look, if the wimpy mainstream media and Governments of men can cause you to flip your lid over the Coronavirus that a squirt of Lysol can take care of, then you just might want to rethink your spiritual connection to God right about now.
Satan is supernatural. You may think you are ready, but the world has never seen anything like this before.
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
All of those verses tell us one thing…
Satan will deceive all the people of the earth due to the miracles he displays in the sight of you and I. Satan is going to pull the biggest con the world has ever seen, and Satan is looking for suckers to buy in, are you going to be one of them?
The only people that will escape the lie are those Sealed with the Word of God as Revelation 7 declares. Hey, that’s some big pants to fill right there.
Satan will deceive the entire earth, except for those in Revelation 7, the 144,000 and the “great multitude” of Saints standing before the Throne of God, (Revelation 7:9-15). As a side note, these Saints along with the Two Witnesses will help many out of the lie, but that will come later into the Tribulation.
What I want you to focus on is this whole mess the world finds itself in right now. I want you to ask yourself, what have you bought into lately? What con game did you buy into?
Folks, the Governments and mainstream media have the world in a tizzy over this Coronavirus. A simple virus with a 2% kill rate. Yes it kills, yes it is dangerous to the elderly, especially those in bad health. So is the seasonal cold and flu. The response we are seeing globally is not equal to the threat. It is not warranted.
While the Coronavirus has come, one day it will go. Yet, there will be an even more deadly virus, bigger and uglier than anything we have ever seen. This virus will talk to us, and tell us why we should accept it, why we should buy into it. That virus is Satan, the deadliest virus in the universe and if you let him, he will infect your life with his lies, he will even take your soul if you allow it.
Simply meaning, if you buy into Satan’s con, then you have forgotten your true love which is our Heavenly Father. If you walk away from God, there is punishment for that, it could even be the Lake of Fire.
Think about that. Think about how easily we can be conditioned to the lies and deception of this world. Think about your religious beliefs.
If you cannot question your Bible teacher, or he cannot answer your questions, then there is something wrong. If you are not wise enough to ask questions about the things you are taught when you do not understand, Satan just might become your best friend.
Friends, my intention is not to offend you, but to make you seriously think about your belief system. My intention is to make you question your own beliefs as there are so many false ones these days. Christ told us that would happen, He said there would be many false teachers and prophets, (Matthew 24:4-5). To think you are immune against that is simply not Biblical or logical.
If you cannot see through the little baby lies of the world today like the Coronavirus (undo fear and panic), how will you beat the con man?
Think about it.
Pray about it.
Heavenly Father, we ask that you help our readers and Christian brothers and sisters around the world. We ask that you keep them strong in faith, spirit and your Word. We ask that you give them spiritual sight to see through the propaganda men would have us believe. Father, we ask that you protect us and our families through times like these, and the times to come.
In Jesus name, amen.
