I’d like to share a few thoughts about what I call “God warning.”
God never pours out His wrath without warning. He does this warning in two ways. First, He does so by sending prophetic voices to call people to repentance. If the people do not repent, then two, He begins to place remedial judgments upon a nation to call its people again to repentance.
God is so patient. He is long-suffering. He does not wish that any should perish but all to come to repentance.
So, what we are seeing, I think, in the world right now is God putting a remedial judgment upon all of the world. We have many signs in the Bible that point to when Jesus is going to return. We have signs like signs of nature, signs of society, spiritual signs, technological signs, signs of world politics, and signs of Israel. All of those signs are converging for the first time ever, clearly indicating that we are now living in the season of the Lord’s return.
Look around the world today and we see all of these horrific happenings: wildfires in Australia, locust invasions in Africa, the Coronavirus pandemic spreading across the world, volcanoes erupting, and so many earthquakes occurring. We can see that these end times signs are converging — all of them — for the first time ever. It is as if God is shouting from the heavens: “Jesus is coming soon!”
I believe that this Coronavirus pandemic is a worldwide remedial judgment that God is using to call people to repentance, to get them to think about eternity, to get them to think about their lives, and to think about where they are going to be when they are no longer here. I hope you are giving serious thought to your eternal destiny.David Reagan: I believe that this #Coronavirus pandemic is a worldwide remedial judgment that #God is using to call people to repentance.

And, I hope that if you have never accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior that you will do so today, because He is your only hope. The Bible says that the only way to God is through Jesus Christ. So, if you’ve never accepted Jesus, and you don’t know the peace that Christians can have in the midst of this kind of chaos, I urge you to pray to the Lord.
“Father, I admit that I’m a sinner. I admit that I need salvation. I come to you in repentance. I receive your Son Jesus as my Lord and Savior.”
And then, when you’ve prayed that prayer, find a church where the Bible is preached and Jesus is exalted. Publicly manifest your faith in Jesus by both a public proclamation and in water baptism.
