Nations, even those with the most advanced medical technologies, failed to contain the Coronavirus pandemic (or COVID-19). Many families grieved, countries struggled, economies fell. The whole world is being plagued by this seemingly unstoppable disease that led to the “New Normal”, an unprecedented shift in our way of life.
To the temporal world, the development of COVID-19 vaccines seems to be the only hope for mankind. Yet the effectiveness of these vaccines remains in question as the Coronavirus continuously mutates, creating new strains that are far worse and more deadly than the original.
Is a vaccine really the true and ultimate solution? Or is there a spiritual equivalent that people should begin to realize?
As It was in the Days of Noah
History repeats itself in our generation today.
As in the days of Noah, people were living their normal lives — busy with work, family, worldly desires, and ambition — doing their own human will without any heed of God’s righteousness. They are totally oblivious to the impending disaster that was about to engulf the whole world.
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.Genesis 6:5
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.Genesis 6:11-13
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.Matthew 24:37-39
In our generation, it may not come in the form of a flood, but it may come in different forms — war, famine, or disease — such as the COVID-19. If people fail to repent and go back to the will of the Almighty Father, then God’s judgment is at hand.
As Pastor Apollo Quiboloy has revealed, the Coronavirus pandemic is only the beginning.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.Matthew 24:7-8
Devastating Plagues and Global Pandemics are on the Horizon
In Revelation 6, the Apostle John the Beloved wrote about the “seven seals” that lead up to the Second Coming.
The first four are often called the “four horsemen of the apocalypse.” They represent religious deception, war, famine, and disease (Revelation 6:1-8).
John wrote about the fourth horse and its rider in Revelation 6:8.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name 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.Revelation 6:8
According to The Expositor’s Bible Commentary, “Pale (chloros) denotes a yellowish-green, the light green of a plant, or the paleness of a sick person in contrast to a healthy appearance.”
In the original Greek, the phrase “by the beasts of the earth” can also refer to animal-borne disease that passes on to humans.
This bible passage, written by John, represents a widespread occurrence of an infectious disease — haunting and unyielding.
The passage says that along with the other three riders, the anemic-looking horseman that represents disease will slay “the fourth part of the earth.” With today’s population of 7.7 billion, that figure would come to almost 2 billion.
This is also parallel to Old Testament accounts where God sent plagues (angel of death) because of the wickedness of men.
The Angel of Death
- In the Old Testament, we will find that it was “the Angel of the Lord” — the Death angel — that went over the Egyptians and caused them to suffer and die in great numbers.
- The Death Angel (when David committed sin by numbering Israel to go to war) came to the Israelites and killed 70,000 of them.
- In the time of Isaiah and Hezekiah, when the Assyrian army was on the verge of attacking and overcoming Jerusalem, “the Angel of the Lord” came and killed 185,000 of the Assyrians in one night by a plague/pestilence.
Is there a Way of Escape?
The signs are prevalent all over the world, signaling a wake-up call for all of us to repent and go back to the Almighty Father, through the message of the Appointed Son of God, Pastor Apollo Quiboloy — the one man anointed and appointed by the Almighty Father to be His audible voice in these last days.
Pastor Apollo Quiboloy has repeatedly declared to the world, “This is the Day of the Lord, as I have declared on April 13, 2005, and it is no longer the days of man.”
30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.Acts 17:30-31
7 And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the Lord: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.Jeremiah 24:7
This is now the time for us to repent and go back to God because we don’t know when the angel of death would visit us in the form of COVID-19. We don’t know the day. We don’t know the hour. It might come to you unexpectedly, and you don’t know what will happen after that.
6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.Isaiah 55:6-7
These are the spiritual perspectives of what’s happening in our generation in these last days. Remember, God is the all-powerful God that governs the nations and the affairs of people. Many times, we’ve seen in the last days that people and nations have forgotten God and went on their own ways without acknowledging that judgment is also going to come, for we are all accountable to our Creator. Now is the time for us to repent. Now is the time for us to come back to Him, as He said in Isaiah 55:6-7.
Pastor Apollo Quiboloy reminds us, “This is the beginning of the Great Tribulation. Do not delay. Come back to God.”
