The responses being taken to the coronavirus outbreak are unprecedented and unlike any seen in most people’s lives. Businesses and churches have closed. Some store shelves have been emptied by shoppers that have panicked. Quarantine orders have been put into effect in some areas. Entertainment and sporting events have come to a halt. Some people have called 9-11 to report neighbors who are coughing or having an overly loud sneeze. Some areas are discouraging the use of cash due to contamination. At the same time there’s an Iranian official who is calling for a deliberate spread of the virus worldwide in order to usher in the Muslim messiah.
As of the time of this broadcast, there have been nearly 10,000 deaths worldwide from the coronavirus and just today, Italy surpassed China in number of deaths.
Meanwhile, a 5.7 magnitude earthquake shook Utah yesterday knocking the horn out of the hand of the angel ‘Moroni’ on top of the Mormon Temple.
Then just a couple of weeks ago, locusts stripped hundreds of square miles of African croplands and now its reported that a second wave is about to descend that has the potential to damage the food and economic security of a tenth of the world’s population.
Joining Jim to discuss these events was Dr. Gary Frazier. Dr. Frazier is a respected speaker and writer on the subject of Bible prophecy. He’s the founder and President of Discovery Missions. He is the author of several books including, ‘Miracle of Israel,’ ‘Hell is for Real’ and ‘It Could Happen Tomorrow.’
Some people look at current events and conclude that we’ve entered the tribulation period and that the antichrist is on the verge of appearing. Dr. Frazier noted that such conclusions come from individuals who haven’t looked at Scripture very carefully. In that light, he began by warning listeners that Jesus is coming. However, where do we look to find any possible answers and then put the events taking place in the proper perspective?
He pointed to the Bible as the only reliable source for what the future holds for all of us. God has a plan for the ages. He doesn’t provide every detail, but He does provide a ‘big picture’ outline in Scripture that includes certain key events that must take place prior to the Great Tribulation.
So what exactly does Scripture say about events such as those we’re experiencing and those related to the Great Tribulation? Is this a sign of things to come, a ‘dress rehearsal’ of sorts, for what will happen at the time of the rapture and future tribulation?
Dr. Frazier addressed these and other questions, as well as offering counsel, by sharing biblical wisdom concerning what the response of born-again believers should look like at this critical time.
