    Your Vid doesn't work.
    Are you referring to the current Covid 19 panic?
    If you are, my reply is: No; it is just another plague like the many that mankind has experienced thru the ages. The result of the Fourth Horseman of Revelation 6:7-8.
    We will surely know when the real thing strikes:

    Jeremiah 25:30-38 The Lord roars from on high. He thunders from His holy place. He roars loudly against His holy Land and like a grape treader. Revelation 14:18-20
    He shouts against all the inhabitants of the earth. The great noise is heard around the world. For the Lord brings His judgement against the nations, He arraigns all mankind and has handed over the wicked and godless to the sword.
    Revelation 6:12-17, Isaiah 66:15-17, 2 Peter 3:7

    The Lord says, ‘Disaster spreads from nation to nation, a mighty tempest is unleashed, that will blast to every corner of the world’. Those whom the Lord has killed on that Day will be strewn from one end of the earth to the other, they will not be mourned or buried, but left as dung upon the ground.

    Cry out you bad shepherds and useless leaders of My people, the Day comes for your demise, you will fall like prize rams to the slaughter. There will be no escape from the Lord’s fierce anger, like a lion leaping to the kill.

    Disaster will suddenly strike and their land will become desolate because of the fiery wrath of the Lord. Ref: REB, CJB.

    It is now time to realize that this terrible, worldwide disaster is soon to happen.
    In no way has this prophecy been fulfilled yet and this cannot be at the Return, as it must be before that: He thunders from His holy place…. He sends down fireAmos 1 & 2:1-5, Psalms 18:13, Psalms 11:4-6, Revelation 6:12-17 and Revelation 14:17-20

    Many other prophesies vividly describe this sudden and shocking, Day of the Lord’s wrath, a one day event: as fire from the sky, a Coronal Mass Ejection sun explosion, that will literally fulfill all of them. Psalms 83 tells how fire and tempest will destroy those attackers of Israel and details like ‘the sky rolled up like a scroll’, and the ‘moon blood red’, are also literal effects of a massive earth directed C M E. Isaiah 30:26-30, Isaiah 66:14-16, 2 Peter 3:7

    The millions killed on that Day won’t be buried because there won’t be enough survivors to do that and the extreme heat of a CME and the fires caused by it, will reduce them to ashes. Malachi 4:3, Jeremiah 9:22

    Those who have led the people astray with their false teachings, fictional books and poor leadership will be judged and punished on that Day. Micah 3:1-4, Isaiah 56:10-12


    The world as we know it now, will not continue for much longer, prophecy is given to us as a warning of what will happen and to be Spiritually and physically prepared, so we can stay strong and keep trusting in the Lord to keep us safe, because He plans for the good of His own faithful Christian people. Jeremiah 29:11, Romans 8:28
    As all the faithful Christians gather and settle into all of the holy Land. Romans 9:24-26.....in the very place, [that ancient Israel was rejected] you Christians will be called the children of the Living God.

    Colossians 1:11-12 In His glorious might may He give you ample strength to meet with fortitude and patience whatever comes and to give joyful thanks to the Father who has made you fit to share in the heritage of God’s people, in His Kingdom of Light. To come later; in the Millennium.

    I am certain the world will never be the same again. Superficially perhaps, for a short time, but you know the verse. "And they cried peace and safety, but sudden destruction..."

    This German/EU view of a planned or potential near-future virus pandemic is a very fascinating document developed in 2012. And they labeled it the Corona virus no less. The 3 year 3 cycle graph is especially interesting revealing when and where this virus would begin, in a market place in China Feb 2020, although about 6 months off from its actual start month. It is interesting also because yesterday on the TV a medical expert explained to the viewers why the NY Governor and those in Germany were saying that 60-80% would be infected by this virus when 'it is over.' She explained it could be in this range over a 3 year cycle, not in a first 6 month cycle. So this corroborates the graph in this document of a 3 years virus cycle to a large extent.

    The document predicts that this corona virus begins in China. And according to its graph curves and together with the data we have now today, it shows China's infection rate was very noticeable by Feb 2020 - before it extended out from China. So to be in compliance with this graph, we must go back to its zero date, 6 months earlier of Aug 2019 (not Feb 2020 as the document predicted - 6 months late). And using this as a starting point using the same graph, the 1st cycle virus peak is at the end of April 2020 - 270 days after the zero start date. Which is uncanny, as some medical experts and modelers are saying and predicting the same thing today.

    Now continuing on by using the document graph, the 2nd virus infection cycle peak is set at about 540 days after the zero start date. This then means this 2nd peak is around Jan 2021, and is about 40-50 percent less infectious as the 1st cycle virus peak.

    The last and 3rd cycle peak, occurs about 900 days after the zero start date of the virus - Jan 2022. And this is about 50 percent less infectious as the 2nd cycle.

    There is a large body of evidence suggesting that this virus was man-made. There is much less evidence or circumstantial evidence to say that this virus was purposely exposed to the public in China with its goal, to create a viral pandemic even though this virus is not that deadly as compared even with the common flu, especially among the elderly. I believe it was set in motion, deliberately.

    I also believe this is the 3rd and even final virus drill of this kind since the first less than 20 years ago.

    These are effective psyops weapons to trigger public panic, condition the public to become more dependent on the government, alter laws and introduce replacement laws to control the public more effectively. It is a globalist agenda.

    I also believer this particular globalist plan will ultimately fail although other woes, according to scripture are on the horizon.

    But obviously, the Covid 19 is not 'sudden destruction'.
    What that will be is told to us in over 100 Bible prophesies; The Lord will send fire, an explosion of the suns surface, that will literally fulfil all those graphic prophesies.

    Joel 1:15 The day is near, the Day of the Lord it comes as a mighty destruction from Almighty God.

    Joel 2:1-5 Blow the trumpet in Israel, sound the alarm in Jerusalem. Let all who live in the Land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming – it is close at hand. A Day of darkness and clouds.
    Like [at] the dawn, an innumerable host comes across the land,
    such as never was and will never be again. A fire goes before them, leaving wasteland behind. With a great noise they leap mountains and consume everything to stubble.


    Joel 2:6-11 At the sight of them, all the nations are in anguish. They march in line, none swerving against any defence. They rush upon cities and enter houses through the windows. The earth quakes and the sky is darkened. The Lord thunders at the head of His army, beyond number are those who obey His command. The Day of the Lord is great and dreadful, who can endure it?

    Joel 1:6-12 & 19-20 this invading host destroys trees and crops. Fire has burnt the pastures and trees. All the streams have dried up.

    The Day of the Lord, as described by Joel is not Armageddon, at the Return of Jesus or at the Great White Throne judgement. It is plainly an event before then, also prophesied in Isaiah 2:12-21, Revelation 6:12-17, Ezekiel 7:2-9: + over other 100 times.

    Joel uses the metaphor of an army to describe how this destruction moves across the earth as it rotates- ‘with the dawn’. As nations turn to face the sun, the effects of a Coronal Mass Ejection- sunstrike will hit them. Initially, it will strike the earth as a light flash [Isaiah 30:26a] within 8 minutes, then the highly charged cosmic particles arrive about 24 hours later, causing immense destruction and deaths. Fires and volcanic eruptions will result in smoke and ash clouds, covering the sky. Isaiah 29:5-6, Psalms 18:7-15, Jeremiah 4:23-28

    Judah [the current State of Israel] is affected- Hosea 8:14, Eze. 20:45-48, Isa 4:3-4.
    And the Lord’s enemies: Isaiah 22:5-14, Psalms 83:1-18, Isaiah 63:1-6. Isaiah 66:15-17, plus many others.

    Deuteronomy 32:34-43 says how He will act when His enemies ‘foot will slip”. That is they make a mistake. That mistake will be their instigating an attack against Israel.


    Malachi 4:1-3 Surely the day of the Lord is coming, it will burn like a furnace. All the evildoers will be as stubble, they will be burned up. They will be ashes under your feet. But for you, who revere My Name, righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. You will rejoice and prevail over the wicked on the Day that I act against them.

    THEN the many prophecies that describe the migration of all true believers into the Promised Land will come to pass. This great exodus of His faithful Christian people will fulfil the promises that God made to the Patriarchs and they will, at last be a people that will be a ‘light to the nations’. They will prepare themselves and the world for the Return of Jesus. Ezekiel 35:11-15, Ezekiel 36:8-12, Deuteronomy 30:1-10, Zechariah 10:6-12, Isaiah 46:27-28, Ezekiel 39:25-29, Zephaniah 10:6-12

    That Jesus is not yet present at this time, is clear from the many verses saying: ‘You will know that I am the Lord, when... And how it ‘will be as in the days of Egypt’.

    Eze. 14:6-11, Eze 39:22, Joel 2:27, Isa 41:20. Reference: REB, NIV. Some verses abridged

    My friend. I am not suggesting that covid 19 is a part of the plagues or a part of the final judgement. No, that is yet to come. But are those birth pangs increasing in intensity? You betcha. Increasing in frequency? Absolutey. The beginning of sorrows? Yeap. You see I have an idea of where we are precisely on the timeline. The destruction of Jerusalem was a precursor...a type... Of the destruction you speak of. History repeats. Jerusalems judgement came in two stages. The abomination of desolation that Jesus told us to watch out for came in two stages, and will repeat. First, the Roman idolatrous sun worshipping armies planted their flags on holy ground. But they withdrew allowing the Christians to take to the hills. This they did, and not one Christian died in the second seige. I believe we are witnessing the gathering of the armies of Rome globally in order to eventually destroy Gods people. The evidence of connections between this virus and Rome are mounting. Kabala beliefs are inherent in the powers that seek to overturn our society in order to establish their luciferian doctrines. And those Noahide laws are an interesting addition to the recipe. But Rome's footprint is all over this.
    I suggest things will get back to seeming normality at some stage. People will declares "peace and safety". Them we be the Christian warning to flee, because after a short respite I believe the final seige against Gods people will then come with steroids. Global currency restrictions against all who refuse to worship at the feet of the sun god Baal. Mystery, Babylon will take full control. Demons will openly walk the streets. Read the historical accounts of the Jews during that second seige of Titus. The fallen churches and all those who refuse to prepare now will not recognise the signs of the time of the end and they shall suffer terribly, betraying one another to the authorities just to survive. Satan will at that time have full unbridled control. The harvest will them be ripe both for judgement and deliverance.

    This scenario takes no account of what the Bible prophets actually tell us will happen.

    The so called next Mid East war or W.W. 3:
    Micah 4:11-12 Now; many nations are massed against Israel.....They do not know the Lord's purpose, for He has gathered them for the threshing.

    Psalms 83:13-15 Scatter Your enemies, O God, like thistledown, like chaff before the wind, like a fire raging through the forested hills. Pursue them with Your tempest, terrify them with Your storm winds.

    2 Samuel 22:9-16 The earth quaked, shaking because of the Lord’s anger. Smoke and devouring fire issued from Him. He parted the heavens and came down, thick darkness His covering. God thundered from heaven, lightning shafts flashed.

    Psalms 50:1-3 The Lord is coming, a consuming fire, around Him a great storm rages.

    Zechariah 9:14 The Lord will appear over them, His arrows flashing like lightning.

    Isaiah 29:6 Suddenly, in an instant, punishment will come from the Lord, with fire, etc.

    Habakkuk 3:14 With his own weapon, You pierced his head, as they stormed out to fight

    Joel 1:15 The Day of the Lord is near, it comes, a mighty destruction from the Almighty

    Revelation 6:12-17 The Lamb broke the Sixth Seal, there was a violent earthquake ..terrible signs in the heavens. The great Day of the Lord’s wrath has come and who can stand?

    Isaiah 30:26 The sun will shine 7 times brighter on the Day the Lord saves His people.

    A Coronal Mass Ejection of unprecedented magnitude will literally fulfil all the graphic prophesies about the forthcoming actual Day of the Lord’s fiery wrath, that will change the world and commence all the prophesied end time events.

    The church is Israel. Compare your verse above with what Jesus warned when He said we shall be hated of all Nations for My name's sake.

    Yes; the soon to happen Lord's day of fiery wrath, will badly affect ALL of the Israelite peoples. The House of Judah, now in a small part of the holy land and the House of Israel, still scattered among the nations. The Christian peoples.
    The Israel that Micah 4:11-12 refers to is the part now in the holy Land.

    It was a very interesting video...although, he sort of lost me when he started talking about the Noahide laws...I missed the link he was making I think.

    I truly don't know when Christ will come again, or even what precise signs will precede that return (at least, not like many claim to)...but I do find some of the things this outbreak have highlighted interesting. Those being...how very quickly and completely our 'Western' society has effectively been locked into socialist mode. And by that I mean; we're seeing a total take over by the Governments. It differs by Country, but in general we're seeing Governments shut down businesses, put people on standard payments that mean we rely directly upon them. They are controlling our movements, by force, if need be. And they're even starting to use tech to make sure we're doing what we're told.
    And, while I understand that the 'reason' we're being given for all this is that the virus, while not perhaps as deadly as SARS or MERS, it IS much more contagious...which means that potentially there will be a MUCH higher number of people needing medical help at the one time...potentially overloading our medical systems. I 'get' that, but still....one can't help but wonder at the incredible lengths all Countries are going to. The death rate of COVID-19, even given its virility, wouldn't, you'd think, be as alarming with it's estimated 2%, than MERS with it's death rate of 34%. We didn't see even half the amount of panic or shut downs with MERS.
    Granted, I am not a doctor, and I live in a Country not heavily touched by the virus yet, so I might be a little blase about it...and I'd certainly rather err on the side of caution at this time rather than risk the older people I love. But yes....I do wonder what the shape of the world, the economy, politics...even religion...will be like when we all emerge from this. Some of the changes being made now could be kept, and some things might not bounce back like the Governments hope. As I said, I don't know if this is a sign of the approaching 'end'....as tough as I know those days could be...still...that promise at the end, to behold him face to face. Yep. I can get behind that.

    Well here is one sign for you.

    When you see these things occur, you'll know God is about to lay the smack down.

    Make that 0.02% or even 0.01%.

    You are correct in that Western governments have suddenly become totalitarian on the basis of another strain of flu! So China's Communist bosses must be rolling on the floor laughing. They can now turn around and tell the West "You are no different than China, and we've got things under control, while you have not".

    Most Westerners do not even realize that the mainstream media are rooting for China, and are actually the surrogates of the CCP and the Democrat party. They keep on bashing Trump while praising China. Perhaps they've been bought and paid for.

    Lol! Granted! But, the way I see it, the signs that speak of massive, cosmic, world ending type events...they happen in the moments preceding Christ's return. And yeah, we'll know to look up. But I'm talking about down the road. Some people reckon they can plot out every event that needs to happen for years out. I don't think the scripture gives us that clear a picture of the lead up.

    The 2% is an estimate...spread out across the globe I think. There are countries where its higher or lower.
    It's rather bizarre, isn't it? How quickly we flipped to 'the dark side'? And everyone not only hurrying to do it, but actively calling for it. Bernie Sanders must be sitting in one of his houses chuckling with glee.

    The day of the lord doesn't immediately precede the day the lord returns, its only meant to be a sign that God is about to unleash his wrath. His actual return doesn't happen until the seventh trumpet many chapters later, just before the seven vials judgement. This is all crystal clear from the text, and disproves any notion of a pre tribulation rapture. Remember, God said that one of the reasons why he made the stars and planets was to be for signs. This is why God set up the Day of the Lord this way, so that there is no mistaking on our part of knowing when we are in the last days. There won't be any mistaking it for the unbelieving world either, since they will be pissing their pants, trying to hide like little punks from the face of God in the sky. I wouldn't be surprised at all if there won't be any professed "atheists" left afterward.

    I'm just sorry to see that President Donald Trump failed -- right from the start -- to see this as another impeachment effort by the virulent Democrats and the Left-Liberal media.

    He also failed to shut down flights to and from China immediately (and had Trudeau in Canada to do the same or face serious consequences). The southern border should have also been closed at that time. Now Mexico has shut down its border to Americans! Imagine.

    News about this virus was beginning to filter through in December. And that was the time when he should have sat down with some clear-headed and loyal people (whether or not they were in his administration, e.g. Rush Limbaugh, Ben Carson, David Clarke, Chuck Norris, VP Pence etc) and developed a COMPREHENSIVE plan to address every issue that might arise (including a draft bill for economic relief which was succinct and free from pork barrel politics, which should have gone to the Senate in preparation for that eventuality). What we have seen all along are ad hoc decisions, and also the use of people like Dr. Fauci etc. who were actually a part of the Deep State from way back (Fauci was a good buddy of Hillary Clinton).

    Following that he should have gone on national TV and presented his plan to the people as an Executive Order (which would also ensure that no constitutional liberties were violated by local, state, or federal governments and agencies).

    There should have also been a separate White House web site to focus strictly on the pandemic and keep everyone updated with facts and figures (as opposed to MSM propaganda). Indeed he should have encouraged his friends years ago to set up a separate TV network which would bring proper news to the world apart from FOX and all the other Left-liberal hacks.

    Furthermore his Executive Order should have included a warning to the media, that if they failed to focus on the facts, and attempted to create panic and engage in Trump bashing, they would be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The press has never been put on notice for their destructive work and their sedition against the President. He should have also demanded the resignation of Pelosi, Schumer, the Director General of W.H.O., and a few other traitors who were working for the Chinese government from way back.

    The next time the governments of this world say. " lock yourself up", the terrified people will do it without question,

    this has
    1. Allowed some governments to "legally" use peoples mobiles to track them - using 19 as there excuse,
    2. Caused you to loose your freedom and the right to choose. - you will or else.
    3. Like China, has caused people to spy on one another and dob people in
    4. Caused many companies to only use card, no cash, cashless society in one fowl swoop, soon you will have no control of your finances - bank shut up, you have nothing - you wanted convenience the banks won you lost.

    and for the climate change fools, this is what you wanted, a worlds without jobs, you should be happy.

    Your freedom is gone forever now, mankind chose the darkness, we are reaping what we have sown, smart they say we are, just look at the news.

    Number 4 is what I fully expect them to push on us from here on in more than anything else. They already tried to sneak in the so called "digital dollar" in the Corona Stimulus package thinking no one was paying attention. More of such attempts will come for sure. The cashless grid will be the very thing that will be used to coerce the populace into taking the mark of the beast.
