The end times - reasons to stop and to think

Loyal
Whilst the whole world tries to come to terms with Covid-19, the beast advances to his next stage!

We do not know how the virus started, but USA says it has enough evidence to say that the virus started in a lab in Wahun in China. Right or wrong here doesn't matter for this post, what we do know is it is one of an increase in pestilences in these latter days.

What has happened in this pandemic, other than millions across the world passing away, that is a lot of lost souls. The way we live our lives as changed significantly, we are in lock down, (or should be unless we can work or need drugs), we cannot see our loved ones, we are separated and isolated. But this is just the tip of the iceberg!

Governments and business' are requesting we pay for goods, not just by card payment but by using contactless, it is 'another step' towards the introduction and acceptance of a cashless society. The devil has moved a step further towards his goal. But it doesn't stop there!

China and Korea has done it, Germany has done it, other countries have done it, the UK is about to do it. The introduction of a track and trace app, using the virus to advance the technology, is without doubt a close threat to democracy, even Angela Merkel admitted this when they introduced the app in Germany.

I add these details and welcome the thoughts of our dear brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus.

We are in the latter days for sure, things are moving at an incredible speed.

O Come Lord Jesus.

the foundation is being laid for sure, and we the people are being conditioned, I have never in my life felt the urgency to talk about God to people. I bet in the last couple months I have talked to more people about God then in the last two years.

Our liberties are being taken in name of safety and people are willingly giving them up, I dont think it will ever be the same. I try to prepare my self for what is coming, to grow in my faith has never been more important then now.

Paul are you on facebook??

blessing brother, I look forward to getting to know you in eternity

It had to happen eventually, it was fortold. The days may be evil, but we can still rejoice that God is still in control even though the deep state players think they are winning.

The foundations are laid for sure, don't look for things to return to what they were, what it was wasn't right, nothing will be right till our Lord returns in Glory and all things made new.

My wife said to me, every new year people say, I hope next year is better, every year for ten or more, she said, I have replied, it won't be, every year will get worse, and they have. Even with covid19 and everything it has brought with it, I still say it will get worse, scripture confirms it, do not worry about tomorrow though, Trust in The Word, Trust in The Lord.

Let's not look back, for a little while we will suffer, some more than others, but we will suffer, keep looking to the Lord, He is coming soon my friend. We have so much to look forward to, why look back?

No I am not on Facebook Dave, I am not on any social media, does that make me unsociable?

Bless you

So true Brad, it is a wicked world, getting worse by the day, but we must Rejoice, we have reason to Rejoice, we have been told it will get worse, we have been told what to do, let us Rejoice and be glad.

Bless you brother

Yes I also believe this is the end. We must keep trusting in the Lord and not worry. We are His and He will take care of us. We have His wonderful return to look forward to.

It turns out, it really isn't even a pandemic. Less people died in March and April of 2020, than died in 2018 and 2019.
Less people died from covid 19 than the regular flu.

What's really weird about the number of deaths over the last days, is that according to who you believe 97% of these people
died from covid 19. That's amazing, because that means hardly anyone died from heart attacks, stroke, cancer, diabetes, aids,
heart disease, or other causes of death. Only 3% of all deaths over the last 3 months were NOT from covid 19.

Also we are being told to stay home to "flatten the curve", but there is no curve. Hospitals are empty, health workers are being
laid off. In some states the military has set up emergency field hospitals to "handle the overload". But all of these field hospitals
have shut down because there was no "overload".

Total number of deaths in March of 2018 = 251,000. Total number of deaths in March of 2019 = 249,000. Total number of deaths in
March of 2020 = 238,000 (likely that number will go slightly higher do to late reporting) but the bottom line is... about the same number of
people died this year, as in the previous years. A lot of non covid 19 deaths were blamed on covid 19. But even if every one of deaths was
a valid covid 19 death, it still wouldn't qualify as a pendemic. The bottom line number of deaths has not gone up.

Greeting brother,

I would call it a Pestilence, now I am not sure of figures for death in the USA, the figure is stated as large, but compared to population, percent per 100,000 is seem low. So what you say may be correct in USA.

But in Italy, Spain and the UK it is a higher percentage per 100,000 deaths, the government confirm daily all Covid-19 deaths in hospitals, then there was a massive increase in care homes, so these have recently been added into the totals, but they do admit it doesn't yet subtract usual deaths for the time of year. That said they are saying the difference is far more, but they do not quote these figures yet. I am sure they can provide the data, but possibly they are working on a psychological front, showing the highere number of deaths to make public think and take precautions.

I don't think we will really know until some time after the dust has settled, covid-19 is highly infectious, more so with the elderly, it has claimed a lot of lives, it is not over yet.

Bless you

Now BAC, stop using facts to refute the fear of others. Fear has no logical path to follow, so logic will do no good, and after all, no matter how many die of lack of medical care on other issues, or depression in being shut in, or starving due to no job and no money to buy, if even 1 person is fearful, you must bow to their desires to control you and everyone else.

These things should make us, stop, think and pray.

Many may say, it is easy for Jesus to fear not, but the world does not know Jesus.

Fear is in the air, satan is the prince of the air, he loves to stir up confusion and fear and it is everywhere we look.

These things should make us, stop, think and pray

Fear of catching covid-19, fear of losing your job, fear because you have lost your job, fear your job will not be there after the furlough. Fear of coping, fear of lack of money and food, fear of what if, fear of tomorrow.

Fear a loved one may die, fear a loved one has died, fear you will be next, fear of Death.

These things should make us, stop, think and pray

And pray we must, it is our duty, the world is full of lost souls, if we do not pray...who will?

These things should make us, stop, think and pray.

In Jesus Name we pray Amen

Matthew 24:4-14 (NIV2011)
4 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you.
5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many.
6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.
7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.
8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.
9 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.
10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other,
11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.
12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,
13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

We are aware of the wars and rumours of wars, there have always been wars some may say, true but we are also seeing now wars and rumours of wars.

Famines and earthquakes are increasing, over the last 100 years earthquakes have increase sigficantly in number and severity.

The interesting statement in these verses is verse 8, all these being the beginning of birth pangs. A woman does not have birth pangs at the beginning of her pregnancy, she has it at the end, birth pangs come in the final run up to the birth, therefore we are in the latter days of the end times, the rapture, tribulation period still to occur, in the order God has planned, but we are fast approaching these times of sorrow.

Another interesting consideration regarding the birth pangs, a woman cannot have birth pangs unless she conceived first, that means we have already been passing through form conceived to birth pangs, so what important event can we say this period in time, quoted in scripture happened? The only clear event I can see is the Jews returning to Israel, the promised land, as God said would happen through His Prophets. 14 May 1948 Israel was 're-born' and became a state again, the latter days had been conceived, and we should not be surprised in included, the Jews and Israel.

Time is short my friend, we must Trust the Lord with all our heart, ensure we are ready, and keep the wicks and oil of our Faith in Him primed, filled and ready.

Bless you

Hi @B-A-C Where did you get the stats from? The figures I've seen from the CDC show a sharp spike in the death rate in America in the past month. Up from around 55k a week to 70k in the worst week


The same pattern, but sharper still can be seen in the UK.

@B-A-C

I do have to agree with @Hekuran, I am not sure where your stats came from

Italy, Spain, UK and USA have all had massive losses.

Many souls lost, they have had their chance, it is sad.

Those who put off accepting Christ until the last minute, so often miss it.

Nothing they predicted happened. Nothing they have said about this is correct. Why do we keep believing them?
 
Loyal
Probably because 'they' are the experts in their fields -- we're Expected to believe them.

Some of what was predicted Did happen -- just enough to scare everyone into adhering into 'their' way of trying to stop the virus. People Are living longer and longer -- nursing homes are full of people / Assisted-living homes. Those are the more vulnerable. Those with weakened immune systems -- that would include anyone who's had chemo treatments for cancer. Those with asthma -- very few young people.

This is a lot like -- the theory of evolution -- we believe the experts -- we Don't look at common sense. I don't really mean to detract from the thread. But it just struct me as to the similarities of the two. The 'purpose' Of the man-made theory Of how this world, mankind Got here. Are we Really willing to throw out God's Word? Or modify it to meet Societies / scientists 'say so'.

And it's very true that our health and well-being are at stake.

But it's Not just the unsaved getting sick and dying -- that's what one of the posters was suggesting. All the millions of people who have died as a result and are in eternity. Well -- do we Really believe that the number are that high. I don't think So. And I don't think any survey has been taken as to what the spiritual condition of any of those people were. People were getting sick and Everyone was being quarantined. And That has been the problem -- Enforced quarantining.

On the One hand -- no one Wants to get sick -- and No one Wants to die from Anything. And no one Wants their means of income compromised. And people Are 'waking up' to what's happening and They are being 'come down on'.

And with all the sanitizers being used -- and the face masks -- what Are we setting ourselves up for? Anything? Maybe we're getting set up for getting Used to distancing -- Not being as close to others as we used to be. Emotional distancing is Not healthy Not good for people. We're beginning to see that. And the violence at home. Well -- put drugs / alcohol in a home with children and mandated -- what do they Think is going to happen. And the idea of 'if you find yourself in a dangerous situation at home -- call a certain number. Well -- if that Is taking place. Exactly Who in that household is going to call for help. The one Being abused is going to be Afraid Of the abuser.

Maybe part of 'this' is that someone feels that in the Bigger picture -- society can be leveled-off. Everyone can somehow end up on the same level. Housing, education, etc. Isn't that called 'socialism' And what Will the 'okay' level end up Being. Someone Has to be in charge. There's Always is a heirarchy of authority.

Eventually -- there Will be a righteous heirarchy of authority -- it will be during the 1,000 reign of Jesus Christ on earth. That is in the future. And That won't even be 'heaven on earth'. Eventually -- there Will be eternity. That is what we really need to be prepared for. We Could die today / tomorrow. Are we really ready?!
