Is Coronavirus in Bible Prophecy? | A Preview Global Pandemic? | Is COVID-19 a Sign or a Warning?
Facing Uncertain Times | Six Lessons for Faith, Hope, and Love | How to refocus on God in times of uncertainty and crisis
"There is a great amount of uncertainty and fear surrounding this rapidly-spreading virus. Businesses and schools are shuttered. Scientists are scrambling. And the stock market falls as quickly as it rebounds.
"According to my many years of studying Bible prophecy—and the timeline of events as foretold by scripture, I can say with assurance: COVID-19 is not a sign of the Rapture of the Church, and might only be a preeminent sign of the Second Coming of Christ.
"However, it is a sign for today. We must be about our Father’s work, sharing the gospel and drawing all people to Him while there is still time! And I want to help you do it.
"It might interest you to know that many of you asked the same questions about end-times prophecy and the Last Days before Christ’s return. This tells me a couple of things: There is a natural curiosity we all share about God’s Word...especially when it comes to this topic! And, we all need clarity from time to time on the truths found in the Bible...and what these truths mean for our lives today."
This course is a reminder that God is still in control, that Jesus is the coming King of kings and Lord of lords, and that the Holy Spirit is at work. We will get through this.
