Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

Could this be it?

    How many think this is going to turn out to be martial law? and the mark of the beast next?

    I'm trying not to get nervous...when I do I pray and reread psalm 91 over and over. I can't believe I am seeing this with my own eyes.

    Hopefully I'm wrong. My grandchildren are only 5 and 3. I cant bear to watch them go through something bad. IF we are to get raptured..I hope they go.
    I've prayed over and over to protect them from the virus. God is still in ultimate control.

    This is not "it" or anything like "it". It's certainly not martial law and marks of beasts.

    It has an eerie resemblance to martial law with the increased micromanagement by the government every single day. I'm not against drastic safety measures to stave off the spread, but I don't know if it's all in good faith or not.

    I haven't decided if the rapture is true (sorry), however I would like it to be so I don't have to suffer for not taking the mark. How can we band with other Christians and flee taking the mark if social distancing prohibits us from banding together with enough people? The quota is getting smaller and smaller. It rubs me the wrong way.

    It is one giant step for government and pharmacy toward martial law and the mark.

    If it is the final day, week/ year, Yahweh knows, and the Good Shepherd Jesus is not slack concerning us His sheep.

    A global economic collapse could be the beginning of a "new world order" with all or most nations surrendering their sovereignty to a global government. Of course the tribulation would soon follow culminating in the return of Jesus Christ.

    No. We haven't had WWIII yet, or the few decades of peace that comes after it before things gets worse.

    A few years ago, on March or April or May 17th,
    a world prominent position which has led the world in war many times the last several hundred years,
    stated plainly that wwIII has already started.

    I checked. And found out this is true.

    To verify, I looked up how many countries are at war.

    It turned out, and continues, that very few countries (ten at the time) were NOT at war....

    So the development of wwIII is now already years in, and continuing.

    Yesterday someone listening to news said that a few countries already have a vaccination for it,
    and Israel's is the best (they said ) , as it has no baby particles/cells in it like the American vaccines have had,
    and no toxins like the American vaccines do.

    This certainly could be a way that a one world government is brought into being. Is this that time not sure.

    Humans have gone through worse things than we are right now.

    Consider living in eastern China from 1937 to 1945 during the Japanese occupation of China.

    If , as is the case, the political system has had people fooled for a century, and led many to die in unjust and unneeded wars and police actions,
    would you be surprised !?

    If my knowledge of sanitation is correct and if we have been told the basic truth about the coronavirus, we already could have stopped it. People knew the virus was in China, but they traveled before it was stopped. And now people have gone to bars and had close contact, even after they have known about this thing. The government did not make people do these things.

    Possibly, then, one of the real issues is if people will follow directions. But, for just one example, we see how younger people who knew the issues on purpose went to crowded bars. One guy in line said to a reporter that if anyone in the place had the virus everyone would probably get it, and he was smiling. That's not a government thing.

    And there is another side. For a long time, certain Americans have gone against healthy advice. They have abused themselves in various ways so now their health condition makes them very able to die of the coronavirus. The government did not make them destroy their health.

    And I can get into stress and criticizing others, so I can fail to be helpful in this. The government can not stop me from trusting and obeying Jesus so Jesus has me doing what can help . . . while we enjoy His "rest for your souls" (in Matthew 5:46).
