No one suspected our country would be turned upside down when we were celebrating New Year’ Eve and happily bringing in 2020. But 20 days later the first Corona Virus case showed up in the Pacific Northwest state of Washington in a man who had returned from Wuhan, China. No one was frightened until Italy started experiencing hundreds of cases and the virus began to spread to other European countries. By March 1st our government was warning that an invisible enemy was heading toward the US, and we had better start taking cover.
Some, like me, started to get concerned. By March 15th I was loading up our pantry and taking Matthew Chapter 24 and Revelation Chapter 6 more serious. I had sensed for a long time that something huge was going to happen to the world, but never did I think it would effect my life. Ironically I wrote about expecting unrest and evil increasing around the world in my book: “Take Charge of Your Destiny” which was published in April 2017. Here is a quote from this book:
“We see the birth pains of the end times in all that is taking place within our culture, within our government, and the unrest and evil that is increasing around the globe. These are the warning pangs of what is coming next on the horizon.” (Page 78)
Now it is 4 months later since the first Corona Virus case was documented. Three hundred million Americans have had their lifestyles altered considerably and thousands of them are sick, and hundreds of them have died. Social distancing and lack of entrance into stores and malls and restaurants, along with being orphaned from our family and friends is causing depression – to say nothing of the economic crash.
They call it COVID-19. We know what it does, but do we know what it “is“?
Quite interesting this number 19! In numerology the number 19 represents completion. The number 1 signifies a beginning and the number 9 signifies an end. Also interesting is that the number 19 is only divisible by the number 1 and itself.
Also quite interesting is the word covid, coming close to the word covin or a derivative of it. If something or someone is “covin” it means fraud, a group or person engaged in something to defraud or injure other people. (Webster’s New World College Dictionary, Fourth Edition page 335.) I find even the word corona interesting because it has everything to do with a “crown”. If you are steeped in the knowledge of the White Horseman of Revelation, you might find “corona” as interesting as the number 19 and the word covid.
Since this pandemic came upon the world, and sadly two of my best friends were stricken by this illness – and one of them almost died – I have been in deep contemplation about what is happening and what might lie ahead. Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries has written several enlightening articles that are backed-up by documented truth and Scripture regarding what has happened to us and what may soon be coming. She predicts that we have not seen anything yet!
Americans are being told by progressive globalists that this pandemic will not be stopped until a vaccine is created. With that statement, we have been told to stay in our homes, stop working, stop socializing, stop going to church….stop almost everything that creates life, security, and happiness. Do you see what is happening?
Out of fear you and I may submit to a mandated vaccine. I wonder what else we will be told to do, or not to do? Dr. Fauci of President Trump’s medical team says we will soon be subjected to mandatory testing, tracing, and identification. Are you getting the picture? See a New World Order coming?
I can see in the distance the shadows of many things that may come in the near future, many of them possibly indicating a socialistic government that will strike out our Constitution and nullify many of the rights that we have under the wise framework of our Forefathers. I’m not an alarmist for saying this. All anyone needs to do is read the news wires and watch news channels to get the gist of what’s happening.
The truth about this post is that I struggled to write it and to place it on my website, because most people are blind to what’s actually taking place, and most know little about biblical prophesy – or they just don’t want to read anything negative. I believe it’s time for all of us who know the truth and start talking about it.
If you are still reading and you agree with what this article suggests, I urge you to share this post with your media friends (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and your email contacts. It is important that while there is still time, we talk and share our thoughts and insights about what is happening to our country and to our freedoms. This year is a critical Election Year!
