Another Early Warning
I continue to feel that the Corona 19 pandemic is another warning to the world that we're ignoring God on how we live. He has given us alarms, but throughout history, we've gone on our merry ways. This pandemic, which indicates that we're suffering more than an "epidemic," shows us that our Corona 19 is just one more way God has, of getting the world's attention.
At times, the alerts can be hidden behind other situations. One is when the Lord was warning Israel of another of its disobediences. In Ezekiel 14:19, the prophet says to them; "suppose I were to pour out my fury by sending an epidemic." And Luke 21:11 says, "There will be violent earthquakes, and in various places famines and [deadly and devastating] pestilences (plagues, epidemics); and there will be terrible sights and great signs from heaven."
And as another source says, "Pandemics—global epidemics—have been with us for a long time. COVID-19 is simply the latest. Tomorrow we could as easily see another, much more severe plague emerge seemingly out of nowhere to sweep around the globe, leaving misery and millions of dead in its wake."
It's strange how we people let warnings roll off, as if there's no Heaven nor hell. Leaving the Bible aside, we've known of persons who died, yet somehow were brought back to life, and the stories some of them tell of what they saw. Some of Heaven; others of hell, apparently according to how those persons had lived while here on earth.
All to remind us that since we're not guaranteed another breath, we should talk to Jesus Christ and give our hearts to Him. It's the only sensible way.
