Deadly Coronavirus plague predicted by the Bible?

Deadly Coronavirus plague predicted by the Bible?
| PentecostalTheology.com

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has infected more than 75,000 people around the world and killed at least 2,012 since last year. Health officials are treating the epidemic as a global emergency but many have claimed the coronavirus is a much more sinister danger.

The novel coronavirus strain emerged in China’s Wuhan City last December and conspiracy theorists have flooded the internet with biblical prophecies of the end times.

Christian fundamentalists have bizarrely linked the epidemic to prophecies in the last book of the New Testament, the Book of Revelation.

Coronavirus has been likened to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse as well as cataclysms that will supposedly strike before the end of the world and the Messiah’s second coming.

Twitter user Alchemo A. Lozano said: “@kershaw_martin The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse representing War, Famine, Pestilence and Death as depicted in the Bible on Revelation 6:2-8 are most likely causing this coronavirus worldwide. We don’t see them but we can feel their wrath everywhere.”

Charity Mukaba said: “We can no longer continue watching news as though we don’t read the Bible.

“When you see breaking news about coronavirus, locusts and ebola.

“Understand the times. Distress has hit the Earth. Prepare and escape the wrath of god that is coming #PrepareYeNations”

Another Twitter account, called Jesus is the Only Way to Heaven, said: “Within six weeks, Coronavirus death toll has hit 1,666 and is continuing to rise.

“Bible warns there will be major pestilences in the last days. This is only the beginning of what is to come.

We must not fear but continually abide in Christ through trials and tribulations.”

Many online have pointed to Revelation Chapter 6 as evidence of the unfolding biblical prophecy.

The scripture describes the events at the end of the world when the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse descend upon the land.

Revelation 6: 8 reads: “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his named that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.

“And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”

“Therefore, the virus that they speak of, the bright prognostication, the diagnosis, the fear, my mercy is the quarantine that shall be greater than what they have spoken to you, United States.”

There is, however, no evidence of the coronavirus epidemic being anything more than a natural outbreak.

The coronavirus family of pathogens has already been responsible for the outbreak of two devastating diseases in the past.

Between 2002 and 2003, the SARS-CoV strain of coronavirus killed about 800 people and infected more than 8,000.

Then in 2012, another novel strain of coronavirus emerged in the Middle East( MERS-CoV) and has killed hundreds since.

In both cases, the World Health Organization (WHO) said the coronaviruses were spread to humans by carrier animals.

    Luke 21:11 cautions us that there will be ‘pestilences in various places & fearful events’ in the final days. While we don’t know if the ‘pestilences’ Jesus mentions refers directly to COVID-19, is it a warning?
    Most will admit it is definitely ‘fearful!’

    Revelation 6:5-8 says that in the final days, the world will be rocked by subsequent famines & plagues.

    In the U.S., (as of yesterday, Friday 3/13) the cases of Coronavirus in 47 states have crossed 1600 infections & the death toll has risen to over 40 with an even larger impact globally. Around the world, there are over 137,445 cases & over 5,000 deaths from the virus affecting over 118 countries.

    The word pestilence comes from the Greek word “loymos” which means plague, a fatal epidemic disease.
    There are many who believe that the pestilences that Jesus spoke about will be fulfilled in the first 3 1/2 years of the seven-year tribulation period that follows the rapture.

      Neil Steven Lawrence and that was just in this country alone. the coronavirus hasn’t killed 1/3 that many people in the whole world in the same time frame as the 14000 this year by the flu in the US.

      Neil Steven Lawrence Jared Cheshire but what I am reading from our military medical update for chaplains an VA is that this virus leaves the lungs permanently damaged with fibrosis IS THIS SO? Gary Micheal Epping Steve Losee we may be looking to a 3-6 months lockdown right now

      Jared Cheshire

      Troy Day it can in extreme cases. The permanent fibrosis only occurs in a very small percentage of the severe cases. Mostly in those who are already severely compromised healthwise. it is still a much less contagious and less dangerous condition than the flu. and remember, I may not be a healthcare professional, but I do play one on Facebook from time to time. ????
