Some thoughts on the Coronavirus Crisis:
The prophesied Sequence of Events:
This is the point:
Some of the prophetic implications of the Coronavirus crisis:
Perhaps, world leaders would do well to recall another prophecy about the Tribulation Period: God said, "Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it" (Zech. 12:2-3).
God established borders at the Tower of Babel (Deut. 32:8-10).
God made a covenant to give the Promised Land to Abraham and his descendants forever (Gen. 13:14-15; 17:7-8).
God intends to put His name on Jerusalem forever (II Kings 21:7).
Jesus intends to dwell in Jerusalem and for His Word to go forth out of Jerusalem during the Millennium (Psa. 132:13; Isa. 2:3).
Jesus is coming back as King of kings and Lord of lords (Rev. 19:16).
Notice the accuracy of what Jesus said above (distress of nations, fear, pestilence).
The idea that world leaders can ignore what God said, give part of the Promised Land to someone other than the Jews, establish a world government, and give power to the king of fierce countenance (the Antichrist) to rule over it without consequences instead of King Jesus is ridiculous, ludicrous, irrational nonsense.
World leaders are creating a confrontation with God, and He will never allow them to establish a world government to rule over the Promised Land and Israel (and get away with it) because He promised that the King of kings and Lord of lords (Jesus) will establish His kingdom on earth (world government) and rule over Israel.
God will remove His Church and cut the nations into pieces for cutting His Land into pieces.
As an act of grace, He may be warning world leaders not to divide the land of Israel and not to establish a world government.
As bad as the Coronavirus is, it is fun and games compared to what is prophesied for the seven-year Tribulation Period.
This is more than my opinion.
This is Bible talk (the Word of the one and only all-powerful God that does not lie).
One more thing: Everyone needs to A) Admit that you sin, B) Believe everything the Bible says about Jesus, that He was born of a virgin, He didn't sin, He suffered and died in our place, He was buried, He was raised from the dead, and C) Confess your sins and ask Jesus to save you.
That is the only way to be saved (the only thing that God will accept to let a person in heaven; Jn. 14:6).

Israel and Trump's war on the coronavirus - by Caroline B. Glick - https://www.israelhayom.com/opinions/israel-and-trumps-war-on-the-coronavirus/
The presidency of Donald Trump has shaped coalition talks between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White party chairman Benny Gantz. For weeks, the chief stumbling block holding up a unity government deal was Gantz's attempt to delay or block Israeli implementation of Trump's deal of the century, which green-lights the implementation of Israeli law over parts of Judea and Samaria.
Gantz argued that there was no reason to rush ahead, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Israel should wait six months until the danger passes and then figure out how to proceed. Netanyahu rejected Gantz's position. He insisted that Israel apply its laws to the Jordan Valley, the northern Dead Sea, and the Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria as soon as the joint US-Israeli mapping committee completes its work and pass the law applying Israeli law to the areas by early July, at the latest.
Netanyahu, whose position carried the day, was right to view the issue as urgent. To understand just how urgent it has become, we need to consider Trump's political challenges, seven months before the presidential election in November.
In the midst of the coronavirus pandemonium, major issues have fallen by the wayside. In Israel, no one remembers that Netanyahu's criminal trial was supposed to begin two weeks ago. In America, almost no one noticed that Wisconsin held Democratic presidential primaries on Tuesday between former vice president Joe Biden and socialist Senator Bernie Sanders. Sanders' decision to withdraw from the race following his defeat in Wisconsin would have been the story of the week a month ago. But in the event, no one really cared.
Although Biden is the party establishment's choice for nominee, he is not an ideal candidate. The 77-year-old career politician can't get through a public appearance without tripping on his tongue. In an interview with the friendliest of interviewers on MSNBC last week, for instance, Biden referred to Wuhan, China as Luhan and referred to the national drugstore chain CVS as CVC. Even sympathetic commentators are compelled to raise questions about his mental fitness for office.
In the face of Biden's constant gaffes, talk has exploded on the possibility that the Democrats will ignore the results of the primaries and draft New York Governor Andrew Cuomo as their presidential candidate. How this could happen is unclear. Biden has won the primaries. But in truth, it doesn't matter too much who ends up being the Democratic candidate - it won't decide the outcome of the race.
The coronavirus will.
The spread of the pandemic across the United States has reshuffled the political deck. Until the pandemic broke out, the US economy was prospering and Trump was reaping the rewards of the record unemployment, booming stock market and optimistic economic forecasts. His election rallies drew tens of thousands of supporters, whether they took place in the very red South Carolina or very blue California.
Then the coronavirus arrived. The virus upended Trump's electoral strategy and compelled him to change his basic governing philosophy. Trump is a rhetorical pugilist and a policy iconoclast. He thrives in appearances before a mass audience where he rallies large crowds while resonating their frustration with Washington's ruling class. The coronavirus has made rallies impossible.
As for his programmatic iconoclasm, the pandemic has compelled Trump to embrace "scientific experts," even as they, like their counterparts in the economic and national security spheres, have provided incorrect information and assessments about the coronavirus.
Trump rejected the "expert" opinion of the foreign policy "experts" and the economic "experts" in forging his successful foreign policies and economic policies. But given the massive uncertainty about the nature and danger of the coronavirus, ignoring scientific advice is far riskier a prospect, particularly in the midst of a public health crisis.
The problem is that the scientific experts themselves have built up a terrible track record. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of Trump's coronavirus task force said in January that the virus wasn't a significant threat to the US Currently, Fauci and his expert colleagues in the federal medial bureaucracy are downplaying the potential of medicines that seem to work in treating the virus.
For instance, Fauci reportedly opposes recommending the use of drug combinations including hydroxychloroquine, which has brought positive results to coronavirus patients worldwide. They reportedly argue that the drugs, developed to treat other ailments, haven't been tested as rigorously as drugs generally are tested before being used for new purposes.
Likewise, despite the fact that the US has the ability to perform 500,000 coronavirus tests a day, last week only 100,000 were being performed daily because the Food and Drug Administration won't permit the use of tests produced by private firms.
In other words, in the midst of a pandemic that has shuttered the US economy, the "experts" are gumming up the works for freeing people to return to their jobs and restart the economy.
Democrats for their part are not crediting Trump for his willingness to defer to experts. Rather, as is their wont, the Democrats are moving the goalposts. Several Democratic governors have been using the pandemic as a means to score political points against Trump. Cuomo for instance, repeatedly accused Trump of responsibility for the shortages in medical protective equipment and respirators in New York - despite the fact that the federal government has been rushing massive quantities of supplies to New York and New Jersey to keep up with demand.
On January 29, against the advice of many medical experts, including the World Health Organization, Trump shut down air traffic from China to the US
Cuomo, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Biden, and the media attacked the move as racist. Cuomo, who demanded that the gates of America remain open to Chinese travelers, now accuses Trump of having ignored and downplayed the threat the coronavirus posed to the US.
Cuomo and his fellow Democratic politicians are lavishly supported by the media in their efforts to rewrite the history of the past two months. This week, for instance, the Associated Press published an article that rewrote the history of the past two months. The AP stating everyone was worried about the coronavirus except Trump - including Pelosi, who urged San Franciscans to participate in Chinese New Year's celebrations in San Francisco's Chinatown.
Whereas the Democrats and the media are going out of their way to protect China from criticism, it works out that China's behavior has been far more ominous than even its critics first alleged.
It is widely recognized that the Chinese regime waited two months to tell the world that the virus is transferred between humans and is exceedingly infectious. This week the New York Post reported that, while lulling the world into complacency, from late January to late February, the Chinese regime barred foreign medical supply companies with manufacturing plants in China from exporting their medical equipment. For instance, Chinese officials barred the US firm 3M from shipping protective gear to the US. China seized all of the coronavirus relevant equipment for itself.
Even worse, according to administration officials who spoke to the New York Post from late January until late February, the Chinese bought $1.2 billion worth of medical protective gear. This included two billion masks and more than 25 million protective suits.
In other words, while China was hiding the dangers of the made-in-China virus from the world, they were buying up the world's supply of protective gear and thus ensuring that when the virus began striking the rest of the world, the rest of the world would lack the means to protect itself.
Last week, Holland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland and Australia reported that the protective gear and virus detection tests they purchased from China were defective. Wednesday, Finland reported its Chinese gear was defective.
Despite this, since the pandemic broke out, the Democrats and the liberal media have served as a megaphone for Chinese propaganda. Today they parroted the Chinese data regarding the Chinese infection and death rate despite the fact that US intelligence agencies reported last week that the Chinese data are fraudulent.
Their motivation is obvious. They seek to paint Trump as incompetent. In light of their efforts, not only does Trump need to manage the crisis based on the advice of "experts" that have wrongly assessed the virus from the beginning. He needs to do so in an environment where his opponents are working with China to undermine public trust in his leadership.
This then brings us back to the elections. In Israel, the unemployment rate rose from 3% to 25% in two weeks. According to economist Stephen Moore, US unemployment rates are likely as well to rise from 3.5% at the end of February to 23% by the end of the month. 10 million new Americans registered as unemployed in the last week of March, the largest weekly figure in US history by a factor of more than ten.
To successfully lead the US through the crisis, while facing a concerted effort by the media, China, and Democrats to undermine the public's trust in him, Trump needs to figure out a way to get the US back to work within weeks while minimizing the infection and death rate even as he is receiving bad advice from his experts.
This brings us back to Israel where the stakes in Trump's success couldn't be higher.
On April 7, Forbes reported that Iran has deployed an array of anti-ship missiles and large rockets overlooking the Strait of Hormuz. Whereas Trump refuses to cancel US economic sanctions against Iran - while offering Iran humanitarian assistance in handling the coronavirus - last week Biden said that if he is elected president, he will cancel the US economic sanctions on Iran. The Democratic Party is committed to returning the US to the nuclear deal.
Last week, eight Democratic senators sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo asking him to restore US aid to the Palestinian Authority.
All of this seems unrelated to the coronavirus, but of course, it isn't. It is clear that the same courage that enabled Trump to reject the advice of failed experts on Iran and the Palestinians is required in the war on the coronavirus. If Trump does not find the advisors that will help him to successfully shepherd the US through the coronavirus crisis and save the US economy from depression and collapse, the coronavirus will beat him in November.
This means that Netanyahu is right. We cannot know if Trump will beat the virus or if, with the lavish support of the Democrats, the "experts" and the media, the virus will beat him.
What is clear is that the future of Israel-US relations, like the fate of Iran's nuclear weapons program, will be determined by Trump's ability to win the war against the coronavirus.
What in the World is Happening? - By Rob Pue -
It's been said that "a lie can travel halfway around the world while the TRUTH is still putting on its shoes." We live in a time of great deception, like no other. Some are now coming to understand that, but others are still blind. Even though WE KNOW the government and our politicians lie to us about just about everything. And we know the mainstream media is nothing more than the indoctrination and propaganda arm of a giant octopus of globalists and New World Order elitists. Yet so many still believe that SOMEHOW, THIS TIME, the government, politicians and media are really telling us the truth and only have our best interests in mind regarding this coronavirus "pandemic."
I don't claim to know exactly what's happening now. There are many theories. But clearly something's not right here. You don't shut down the engine and economy of the entire GLOBE, locking down the majority of citizens of Planet Earth because of a virus that has proven to be largely harmless to most of the people. Things are not as they'd have us believe.
HERE'S WHAT WE KNOW:
On October 18, 2019, The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum hosted "a high-level pandemic exercise" in New York City called "Event 201." This event included CEOs of major corporations, media and communications professionals, business, finance and economic leaders, health officials, UN officials and government leaders. Key players included New World Order Globalists and those pushing for global "population control." This was a SIMULATION of a world-wide pandemic, to study how such a catastrophe would impact the world economically and socially. It was sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Bank, the World Economic Forum, the Center for Disease Control, the United Nations Foundation, NBC broadcasting, the Bloomberg Foundation, and the Central Intelligence Agency - yes, the CIA. And the TYPE of pandemic that was studied was a CORONAVIRUS.
On the same day that Event 201 began, the World Military Games began in Wuhan, China. This was an "Olympic-type" sporting event for service members from around the world to compete in sporting events. And the United Nations had a very large presence at the World Military Games. Incidentally, the United States came in 35th place in awards out of 56 countries at the games. China came in first, and Russia second.
Also, for some reason, there was a mass exodus of CEOs resigning from their companies in 2019. In all, 1,480 CEOs resigned last year, and nearly 300 more quit between January and March of this year. It seems they knew something we didn't know.
We also know that China has been busy building economic, diplomatic and military alliances with countries around the world, including Mexico and many Central and South American nations. There are Chinese army troops currently on the ground in many of these countries right now, training and financing their armed forces.
And did you know that 200 Italian businesses are now controlled by Chinese owners... and Chinese investors and firms now own a majority of 2,400 US companies? Additionally, China owns 150,000 acres of prime farmland in the United States.
We hear the word "pandemic" a lot now. But just what, exactly, IS a "pandemic?" A 'Pandemic' is declared when the death-to-infection rate of a disease reaches more than 12%. Here are the current statistics on the Coronavirus:
In Europe, the death rate is 0.4%, except for Italy, which peaked at 6% and is now declining. According to the official reports, 99% of those who died in Italy - with their deaths attributed to the virus - were 80 years old or older and had other underlying illnesses already. China's death rate from the virus peaked at 3% but is now reported to be less than 0.7%. On March 26th, Dr. Anthony Fauci HIMSELF wrote in the New England Journal of Medicine that the effects of the Coronavirus would be substantially less than that of the normal flu virus, with a mortality rate of less than 0.1%. So why, now, all the hysteria and over-reaction?
I've been researching all of this extensively, and I HAVE the numbers; but for the sake of space, I'll leave it to you to do the research and math. But suffice to say that as of April 4th, worldwide deaths from the coronavirus have been less than 0.5% of those infected. What's more, studies show that only 2% of people age 19 and younger contract COVID-19; 12% of middle-aged people get it; and just 24% of people 80 years old or older catch it, MOST who are already sick with other illnesses.
SO, WHAT HAS BEEN OUR RESPONSE TO THIS?
Millions of people worldwide have essentially been locked down. All businesses considered to be "non-essential" have been forced to close. Here in America, draconian measures have been taken to assure "social distancing," meaning that in most places now, it's forbidden for ten or more people to gather, even outdoors. In some states, groups of two or more people are forbidden. Hotlines and websites have been set up for people to essentially "turn their neighbors in" to law enforcement if they feel they're not following the rules.
In addition to professional sports, movie theaters, theme parks and concert arenas have been forced to close for the foreseeable future; 93% of churches in the United States are now closed. Bill DeBlasio, Mayor of New York, has stated that churches that disregard his order to close may be forced to close permanently. In China, they're demolishing church buildings.
And here in our country, those who are considered to be "essential workers" are "allowed" to leave home, but they've been issued "travel papers" by their employers to prove to law enforcement they have a legitimate reason to be out on the streets if they're stopped and questioned.
On March 27th, Trump signed an Executive Order allowing him to activate up to 1 million Individual Ready Reserves. These are retired military personnel, not regular "Reserve" troops. Currently, there are 12,500 National Guard members that have been mobilized, and countless numbers of heavy military vehicles have been seen being transported throughout the country.
On April 1st, Mike Pompeo ordered all American citizens who are currently in other countries to return home immediately.
And here's something you won't see on the evening news: The Pentagon and NORAD are now sending high-level staffers - and some of the most critical US senior military commanders and nuclear and special operations forces to the Cheyenne Mountain bunker facility in Colorado - 2,000 feet underground - to ensure that in the event of a sudden security crisis, including any potential nuclear mission, there will be enough healthy troops and leaders to carry out orders.
Social distancing rules are becoming more and more strict in public, even now at Walmart stores, where only a certain number of people are being allowed in the building at a time, and aisles have been cordoned off so customers must move single file, all in one direction while inside the stores. Several states have ordered that IF people must leave their homes to obtain essential supplies, only one family member is allowed to make the trip. Even outdoor facilities like playgrounds and parks have closed down.
Still, as we see every day when President Trump and his White House Coronavirus Task Force hold press conferences, THEY are NOT 'social distancing' but, rather, standing shoulder-to-shoulder. Likewise, the MEDIA at these press conferences are sitting right next to one another in the audience. Curious.
The media has been reporting that hospitals across the country are being 'overwhelmed' with patients coming to be tested and hospitalized with the virus. Hospitals across the country have set up tents outside to accommodate overflow patients and for virus testing. Refrigerated semi-trucks have been brought in to serve as overflow "morgue" space for deceased patients.
HOWEVER, citizen reporters have checked on this: in city after city, ordinary citizens have visited their local hospitals - including hospitals in New York City - and posted videos online showing hospitals that are completely empty, totally void of people. Empty emergency rooms, empty tents, no people anywhere. Videos are circulating all over the internet showing the same thing: in MOST cities across the country, there ARE NO COVID-19 patients, no overwhelmed hospitals or hospital workers. In New York harbor, the 1,000-bed hospital ship "Comfort" has a total of three patients. In Los Angeles, the hospital ship "Mercy" has 15.
SO, WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON HERE?
I don't believe the entire world has been shut down because of a virus that has been PROVEN to be much less serious and much less devastating than the annual flu bug. There IS a Coronavirus, and it DOES make people sick, but it's not an airborne virus - you can only catch it through direct contact with bodily fluids from an infected person. And, as studies have repeatedly shown, even among the most vulnerable people in the population - those over 80 years old - only 24% contract the virus. What's more, unless one is very elderly and suffering from other ailments already, most people recover at home within a few days or a couple of weeks.
Many people - even Christians - believe in the mysterious figure on the internet known as "Q-Anon." "Q" has been predicting a lot of things for a lot of years, but I have yet to see even one of those predictions come to pass. The current theory from "Q" is that while everyone around the world is "locked down," the "good guys" will be arresting the "bad guys," including members of the "deep state," "shadow government," pedophile celebrities and traitors. That would be great if it were true, but I don't believe it is.
A theory that I find much more plausible is a coming global financial reset - as the world economy is destroyed under the guise of a deadly "pandemic." This seems like an opportune time for the implementation of a new, one-world currency. Debt would be erased, the slate wiped clean and the world would start over with this new currency, which would, of course, be a DIGITAL currency. In fact, during the stimulus package negotiations in Congress, Nancy Pelosi even floated the idea of a "digital wallet" which would be mandatory for all.
This lines up with the UN agenda for what they call "ID 2020." (It IS the year 2020, after all, so this is right on schedule). "ID 2020" is a UN plan that uses a VACCINATION as a platform for a digital form of identification. Your digital ID would include everything about you, including health and vaccine records, assets, credit and debt, and could also TRACK everyone in the world digitally - for our own "safety" and "protection," of course. Imagine: no more missing children, no more identity theft or stolen credit cards. And now that the media has pretty much the whole world frightened out of their wits over this coronavirus "pandemic," it seems millions would eagerly line up now to get the vaccine, which would, at the same time, wipe out their debts as we start over, and even include "free money" in the "digital accounts" - something millions will actually need, having lost everything after months of no income. And what could be easier than an implanted microchip in one's hand or forehead that's simply scanned wherever you go, for whatever you may need?
Incidentally, Bill Gates and other world "elites" and globalists have been big supporters of "ID 2020" as they seek to bring about a one-world government, a New World Order and a One-World Economic System. We've already been told we're on the "fast track" now for a coronavirus vaccine, and what would normally take a year or more to develop could come in just a few months.
There's yet one more theory as to why the world has suddenly become a prison planet, which I believe is very plausible as well, but space does not allow me to elaborate here. Maybe next time I will speak on that. In the meantime, let us pray together that the plans of the evil ones are thwarted. We also need to prepare, as true Christ-followers for the persecution that God's Word TELLS US is coming. And it IS coming, and it's out of our control. But friends, remember, it is NOT out of GOD'S control. We may not escape persecution or perilous times, but as we read in Revelation, we WILL overcome the enemy "by the blood of the Lamb, the word of our testimony, and loving not our own lives, even unto death."
Let us be faithful to our Lord and Savior and stand strong 'til the end - no matter what comes - and regarding the work He has called us all to, no matter what comes upon us, may we all finish well, KNOWING that He will work all things together for good for those that love Him and are called according to His purpose.
Global Digital ID With Vaccines Is Now Being Promoted As Way To Combat The Virus - By PNW Staff -
First, it was former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown who called on world leaders to form a "temporary" global government in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Then it was the United Nations Secretary-General asking nations to contribute at least ten percent of their annual income, essentially a global tax.
Now we have Bill Gates and other influential leaders suggesting another global solution - Global Digital ID as part of a vaccination program.
Bill Gates has emerged as a global "authority" in the wake of COVID-19, funding vaccines and advising governments on how to respond to the pandemic.
Gates was busily working to establish global digital ID infrastructure long before the outbreak, which is now being promoted as a way to combat the virus.
ID2020--a project initiated by Bill Gates Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, transnational pharmaceutical corporations, and technology firms--is pushing the concept that every human on the planet needs biometric verification because "to prove who you are is a fundamental and universal human right," according to the ID2020 website.
Gates is not the only one in favor of such systems. Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci who appears with Trump at the daily news briefings recently confirmed in an interview with CNN that the idea of Americans carrying "certificates of immunity" is a possibility being considered to identify people who have been infected with the COVID-19 virus and help jump-start America's economy in the coming weeks.
The certificate of immunity is the pathway that Gates sees for introducing his Global Digial Id certification. Last month Gates was asked about such a certificate on a Reddit forum and said the following:
"Obviously, some kind of recording and tracking mechanism that relies on technology to alert -- in context of discussing coronavirus -- "who has recovered," versus who has "been tested," versus who has been administered a vaccine, "when we have one."
The similar thinking of Fauci and Gates should not come as a surprise. Both are well connected with one another. Fauci serves as a member of the Leadership Council for the Global Vaccine Action Plan.
This organization was established in part by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Health Organization and Fauci's own NIAID -- a plan that calls for a "Decade of Vaccines" to spread far and wide, all around the globe.
Bill Gates, one of the wealthiest men in the world, is already leading the charge to fund the construction of several factories that will be looking for a vaccine for this new virus and has suggested "larger public gatherings may not resume until broad vaccination has taken place."
"As countries begin to lift coronavirus lockdowns, biometric identification can help verify those who have already had the infection, and ensure that the vulnerable get the vaccine when it is launched, health and technology experts said," reports Reuters.
A biometric ID system can keep a record of the infected and those getting the vaccine, said Larry Dohrs, Southeast Asia head at iRespond, a Seattle-based nonprofit that launched its technology last month.
Under the "digital inclusion" initiative, Bill Gates has already been pushing for India's Aadhaar digital ID system to expand around the world prior to the outbreak. The World Bank is heavily invested in the project.
The GSMA - the industry organization for global mobile operators - recently published a report detailing the push for digital ID systems worldwide to respond to COVID-19. As reported:
State governments in India are adapting real-time digital identification mechanisms to monitor compliance with quarantines arising from the COVID-19 pandemic...
Meanwhile, the Jamaican government is looking to fast track the rollout of its National Identification System to help it dispense aid in response to the COVID-19 outbreak...
GSMA technologies are supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. As reported last year, the biometrics company Idemia joined the project:
Idemia has joined the newly launched GSMA Inclusive Tech Lab to support the development of innovations and future technologies that boost digital and financial inclusion...
The GSMA Inclusive Tech Lab intends to promote access to financial, healthcare, mobility, and other services by supporting initiatives around open APIs, artificial intelligence, and digital identity... The GSMA Inclusive Tech Lab is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Idemia is a central company involved in supplying the infrastructure needs of most digital and biometric ID systems around the world.
Idemia also makes drivers licenses in the United States.
Gates said in a 2018 CNBC interview that it was "too bad" if someone thought that Aadhaar was a privacy issue and that those who refuse to be tagged by this system will eventually become outcasts and denied basic services.
If you believe this is dangerously close to China's "social credit" system, you're not far off the mark.
Such a vaccine will eventually become mandatory and those who resist will be blacklisted as public health criminals. They will be locked out of society, similar to Chinese citizens suffering under China's totalitarian social credit system.
Biometric data, ID technology, health ratings/vaccination records, and digital commerce are all merging and advancing to the next level.
While we don't ultimately know what final form the "Mark of the Beast" described in the Book of Revelation will take - these trends all appear to be a foreshadowing of what may be to come.
Daily Jot: The debate on saving COVID-19 lives - Bill Wilson - www.dailyjot.com
Against the backdrop of the New York Times and CNN doing more hit pieces on President Donald Trump using COVID-19 Task Force's Dr. Fauci as the hitman, Americans should all be wondering when we are going to work together to solve this virus problem. Fauci answered a direct question about whether lives could have been saved if the government had acted sooner on the early information it had. Fauci replied, "Obviously you could logically say that if you had a process that was ongoing and you started mitigation earlier you could've saved lives, obviously." Thus, the words that created another firestorm of people accusing Trump of being a murderer. Sadly, this statement of fact will be abused now and forever.
Hindsight is usually picture perfect. Clearly, had anyone really known that COVID-19 was a virulent as it was, and that if the nation went into lockdown in February, lives could have been saved. It would be dense-minded to conclude otherwise. Democrats and the news media are focused on blaming Trump and his Administration for the deaths related to COVID-19. Fauci's connections to the World Health Organization and globalist foundations cause pause in his credibility from the standpoint that he could be someone on the inside who is collaborating with others to bring down the Trump presidency. Irrespective, the statement that shutting down the country earlier would have saved lives, is with all probability, true.
Let us remember what was happening in January. Trump was under relentless fire every day from the news media and the Democratic leadership trying to impeach him, remove him from office. To be approached about a flu virus at that time would have seemed nominal, and let us also remember that Trump's early attempts in January to address COVID-19 were met with ridicule and name calling from the Democratic leadership. This is clearly documented. For those who say that lives could have been saved if Trump would have acted to shut down the country sooner, the answer is yes. Then there is a big "BUT..." But, fact is, lives could have been saved if Democrats and the media hadn't been so focused on removing Trump.
If the Democratic leadership understood the COVID-19 threat (and they had more info than we did), why didn't they act in January instead of pursuing impeachment and ridiculing the President when he banned travel from China? To this day, no constructive suggestions arise from either the Democratic leadership or the news media about how to handle this plague. We are Americans. We have solved mighty problems and met insurmountable challenges when we have worked together. The headline today should read, "If Democrats would have worked with Republicans on COVID-19, lives would have been saved." Instead, the deception continues. Christ said in Matthew 24:4, "Take heed that no man deceive you." Instead of placing blame in the midst of a deadly crisis, give solutions to the problem. Apparently, they have none.
Daily Devotion: No Cleanup Required - by Greg Laurie -
Fearing for their lives, the desperate sailors shouted to their gods for help and threw the cargo overboard to lighten the ship. But all this time Jonah was sound asleep down in the hold. -Jonah 1:5
The sailors had never seen a storm of that kind before. They believed in many gods, but they just wanted to know which god was so angry.
And when the storm got worse, these experienced mariners started to freak out. They told everyone on the boat, including the stranger below deck named Jonah, to call on their god.
Jonah told them, "I am a Hebrew, and I worship the Lord, the God of heaven, who made the sea and the land. . . . Throw me into the sea . . . and it will become calm again. I know that this terrible storm is all my fault" (Jonah 1:9, 12 NLT).
Of course, the sailors didn't want to do that. So they "rowed even harder to get the ship to the land. But the stormy sea was too violent for them, and they couldn't make it" (verse 13 NLT).
Ultimately, they threw Jonah overboard.
Like those frantic sailors, sometimes we try to get ourselves out of our problems in our own strength. We say, "No problem! I'll take care of this. One phone call to a friend, and I'll have a resolution. I have a way to resolve this." Then our problem gets worse and worse. And eventually we realize that we need to cry out to God about it.
Some people think they can become Christians just by doing good things. Or, like throwing cargo overboard, they decide to just get rid of some of the bad things in their lives.
But it's not about just cleaning up your life a little. Being a Christian is realizing there is no other way for you to be forgiven of your sin except through Jesus Christ.
You don't clean up your life and then come to Christ. Come to Christ, and then He will clean up your life.

"Folks, it's all beginning to unravel. America is in more danger of falling than at any time in its history. But I believe Bible prophecy predicts this very decline. From this point on, we believers have to get serious. We are going to face discouragement, disillusionment and, most certainly, persecution in the time between now and the Rapture. But don't be discouraged or disillusioned. The coming turmoil will provide us unrivaled opportunities to share the good news of the Gospel. So be ready to share your faith and your hope with those who need Christ. We still have time to reap a great harvest of souls for God's kingdom!" - Hal Lindsey

Our Prayer for You- "Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else." 2 Corinthians 9:10-13
