Unbelievers do not recognize the signs of the times, nor “the fourth kingdom [that] shall be as strong as iron…and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others” (Dan. 2:40). But discerning believers see the sudden rise and power of the New World Order. The world is quarantined. Freedoms of assembly are banned. Economic destruction has arrived. Crops are rotting in the fields. Food is being controlled by government. And COVID-19 is a massive smoke screen for a much larger nefarious agenda.
Whether you’re a pastor, deacon, lay-person or theologian – if you’re not prepared to defend the shed blood and resurrection of Christ, and the plainly written end-time witness and testimony of Christ, then FULL STOP, “examine yourselves” (2 Cor. 13:5), repent and seek Jesus’ end-time truths because we’ve arrived. No more sugarcoating the Word, or pandering to the culture, the flesh, or the traditions of men, for which ancient Israel was repeatedly guilty.
God said to Isaiah: “Now go, write it before them on a tablet, and note it on a scroll, that it may be for time to come, forever and ever; that this is a rebellious people, lying children, children who will not hear the law of the Lord; who say to their seers, ‘Do not see,’ and to the prophets, ‘Do not prophesy to us right things; speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits’” (Isa. 30:8–10). So too, the dispensational pre-tribulation rapture is NOT God’s Word, but is of “smooth things” and is a prophecy of “deceits”! It’s NOT found in God’s Word, but yet the New Covenant Israel, the Church (Gal. 6:16) has been largely deceived by the pre-trib rapture’s false tradition. Only you can decide who you will believe – God and His Christ, or the “smooth” traditions of men.
COVID-19 unexpectedly struck the world now experiencing an economic collapse. In just three weeks over 10 million Americans lost their jobs and $trillions$ in investments disappeared. An end-time financial depression has come, not only to America, but to the entire world. Food lines stretch for miles as many can no longer provide for their families. Many, never being without a job now depend on the government for sustenance. This is what globalists want, that humanity be dependent on them. Ultimately, if one is not part of their hive, they want us dead – literally.
If, for the last century, the Church had taught the end-time testimony of Jesus, and not the pre-trib rapture deception, there would be no Christians in food lines today! Consider, when Joseph in ancient Egypt learned of the coming famine, he actually believed God that that famine would affect him and made preparations accordingly. As a result Joseph spared not only his own family and all of Israel, but he even saved all of pagan Egypt! That’s a God-honoring testimony, and the result of truly believing God by faith in the midst of an otherwise human catastrophe! Yet, many Christians shamelessly promote the ungodly pre-trib rapture lie, this example being one of many.
Ancient King David of Israel understood the two-fold relationship of walking in the provision and faithfulness of God, who moves, and acts and performs on our behalf the impossible IF we (and here’s the condition) abide in God’s righteousness. David said “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread” (Psa. 37:25 KJV).
Discerning Jesus’ Parable of the Fig Tree, Matt. 24:32–35, it’s wholly probable that COVID-19 is the trigger event that will lead to yet other and more disastrous events, as the world awaits the revelation of “the man of sin…the son of perdition” (2 Thess. 2:3) who will arrive soon. The 7-year tribulation has not begun, but make no mistake, it is very near. Are you prepared for the ID2020 being heavily promoted by globalists like Bill Gates?
On the other side of COVID-19 will emerge a definitive New World Order that wants most people dead and out of its way! To enhance that comes a crushing global famine and the signs are everywhere. Can you hear the woeful hoof beats of the black horse of famine? A financial collapse is also now fully underway. Daniel’s fourth beast-kingdom has arrived. The Seal and Trumpet Judgments are upon us. How can any discerning Christian continue believing the hopeless pre-trib rapture lie? The wise in Christ will not be that foolish.
Again, by Jesus’ Parable of the Fig Tree, this generation will not avoid the promises of Christ’s Olivet Discourse. But foolish Christians who believe in an early coming of the Bridegroom, aka the pre-trib rapture, like the foolish virgins of Matt. 25:1–13, will continue in their unbelief and lack of preparation and will suffer the consequences. God’s Word is true “A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished” (Prov. 22:3).
The covert New World Order has the world’s industrialized nations out of work, quarantined, socially-distanced, and totally controlled under its stay-at-home orders according to their plan. The next global catastrophe will be a famine comingled with war of no small proportion as the food supply and distribution thereof is now also under the sole control of globalists. Prepare for civil violence and uprisings because after three days with no food average humans resort to the most base of instincts for survival. Have you prepared for your family?
In the Spirit, John the revelator saw this global famine. “And when he [Christ] had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo, a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine’” (Rev. 6:5–6 KJV). Understand the severity of the ratio here: “A measure”, is Strong’s #G5518, and in the Greek means “less than our quart, or as much as would support a man of moderate appetite for a day”. During this famine, one day’s labor will barely sustain one man’s daily food needs, let alone his family.
This famine occurs before the mid-tribulation appointed time for those who are found “worthy to escape all these things” (Luke 21:36) and find the safety and provision of God for the last 1,260 days of great tribulation. It will occur either before, or during the first 3 1/2 years of the 7-year tribulation, during the ministry of the “two witnesses” (Rev. 11:3–12). May God by His Word and Holy Spirit reveal to you how to prepare for yourself and your family prior to this coming global catastrophe.
