China and The Coronavirus
We have another deadly virus called the Coronavirus which is spreading rapidly. China is shut off from the rest of the world because of the Coronavirus. The Coronavirus has stopped flights coming from China and going to China.
Is The Coronavirus In The Bible
Jesus told us about the events that would happen before His coming in Matthew 24:3-14. One of these events is Pestilence. Of course there has always been deadly contagious diseases.
What makes all this different?
They are coming closer together like a women’s labor pains. They start out far apart and fairly painless. Then they increase in frequency and pain. Suffering is increasing all over the globe in many different forms.
“While he says China is suffering, he believes something bigger is happening, saying it is time for Christians to proclaim the gospel in a country where their faith is under fire.” – CBN NEWS
Persecution Is Growing
The bible talks about persecution and one particular man, before he got saved, made it his mission to seek out Christians. Does this sound familiar today?
Acts 8:1 KJV And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. 2 And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him. 3 As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison. 4 Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.
The pastor in China goes on to say this is “a new opportunity to grow nearer to the Almighty, to purify our souls, and an opportunity to spread the gospel.” CBN NEWS
Pray for these people. Pray for them to courageously shine the light of Christ in a very dark place.
