Coronavirus prophecy: Are we living in the end times? Bible expert says ‘clock is ticking’

Help deliver hope to global Christians during the coronavirus period: Read Keep The Faith's Covid-19 Appeal

The coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) has infected more than 235,000 people since it first emerged in China last November. The pace at which coronavirus has spread across the globe has led many to read the Bible in search of answers.

The coronavirus has never been seen in humans before and there is no known cure or vaccine.

Many have taken these factors as evidence of the virus’ supposed connections to biblical prophecy.

According to Dr Tom Meyer, a college professor and preacher better known as The Bible Memory Man, the clock is indeed ticking on humanity.

But as the Bible expert points out, the clock has already been ticking for a long time.

Dr Meyer said: “Technically speaking, the clock started ticking for humanity living in the end days after the resurrection and ascension of Christ two thousand years ago – 1 John 2:18.

“But how close the clock is to hitting midnight, the Bible says no man knows, ‘not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows’ – Matthew 24:36.”

In recent weeks, many people have taken to social media to voice their concerns about the coronavirus pandemic.

Many have likened the virus to prophecies of plague and pestilence penned in the Book of Revelation.

The Book of Revelation contains the final chapters of the Bible and outlines what will happen in the end days.

One person on Twitter said: “Bible prophecy being fulfilled with #coronavirus and globalists. The new Tower of Babel. The Lord will not allow it #antichrist coming.”

We should think of the current outbreak as a preview of things to come

Another person said: “Coronavirus Panic compared to The Book of Revelation Chapters 6-19., this should be a wake up call for informed Christians.

“Verse 6-19 is not addressing present day Christians, only those of Faith during that time.

“The leaves of the fig tree are coming on, Summer is very near.”

Dr Meyer, however, does not think the coronavirus signals the end of days just yet.

He said: “We should think of the current outbreak as a preview of things to come, the slightest taste of what life will be like during the Great Tribulation as recorded in various portions of the Old Testament and the book of Revelation.

“But Christians have the blessed hope of deliverance from the coming tribulation.

“Christians will not be present upon the unleashing of the wrath of God in the last days – 1 Thessalonians 5:9 – their fate is to be caught up to Christ in the cloud at the Rapture – 1

“In contrast, unbelievers are appointed to suffer through the second half of the seven-year period called the Great Tribulation until Jesus Christ physically returns to earth, destroys the Antichrist, and establishes his rule in Jerusalem for 1,000 years – Revelation 19-20.

“This comfort for Christians of all ages isn’t escapism – 1 Thessalonians 4:18 – but rather reality based on Biblical authority – 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3.

Dr Meyer travels across the United States to discuss scripture and its meaning.

He is, however, most popularly known for memorising and reciting 20 completes books of the Bible, including the Book of Revelation.

      Yohan, read C.S. Lewis book the problem of pain, he was an Oxford English Professor very brilliant, I think we need to understand that due to the fall (Adam and Eve) a curse was put on the land and Satan is about causing these things, also Ravi Zacharias is a dynamic speaker and almost took his own life, listen to his podcasts or you tube videos, this will save your life, he discusses philosophy and the law of non-contradiction, biggest gamble in life is not believing, thank you me later, I pray for your journey

      Dear Yohan, are you dead sure that God created Covid-19? If you are, your points are substantiated. If not, don’t blame God just yet. If you remember in the beginning, it was men that make the decision to fall from grace. You can seek the truth by seeking God.

      GOD is Alfa and Omega, Sadists are the humans, humans trough their greediness, they are the real monsters that hurt the others like rapists, criminals, phedophiles, Big Egos and Prouds,etc, not sharing, destroyng His Creation, nature, waters, trees, animals, all I pray is to keep the kids safe because they are the only one pure, it happens what is happen because of non belivers like you, because God had enough of you blame Him for all that human disasters created, I really hope the end of this earth come sooner because peoples dare to much and offend to much His name, God is more powerfull than anyone and if He want, there would not be cure for this or other disasters because He is the Creator and He is entitled to do what He likes and if He want a better place, a perfect life I am in.

    Yohan Major obviously does not know God at all and probably has never read or understood God’s word in the Bible. But probably 90% of the world’s population would agree with him—and they are so sadly wrong. In Noah’s days God got rid of more than 99% of the world’s unbelieving population by drowning them in the Great Flood.
    This time, according to the Bible, He will use a variety of methods of ridding His world of all unbelievers who have proved themselves as being unfit to be citizens of His global kingdom which He will set up after He has rid His Earth of all undesirables. The current Covid 19 pandemic is just one of the many global signs that will herald the Second Coming of Jesus. A major war in the middle East will probably be the next sign. The Book of Revelation tells us about all the signs so believers will understand and expect but unbelievers will be scared and bewildered. Many believers will no doubt be killed during the terrifying times to come but these believers will be resurrected back to life and be able to live in a Paradise like Earth for at least a thousand years and King Jesus will rule this world. So its not too late for people who share Yohan’s views to learn about God and be united with Him now before it is too late.

    The bible doesnt say we will not be here for the great tribulation. We will be here for the great tribulation. Its after the tribulation that Jesus comes back. He takes us out of here, then the wrath of God begins. Tribulation is what the world does to us, Wrath is what God does to the world.

    Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

    I have not humbled myself, and asked the Lord Jesus into my life as my saviour. I read the scriptures and know I must do this to be saved. Not one detail of the bible has been disproven, and it’s events have one by one been revealed ( garden of Eden, Noah ark found on mt Sinai, remnants of Pharos army in Red Sea, Israel becoming a nation again, homosexuality being made legal (an abomination in the times of Noah)). We now live in a godless society, access to the scriptures is frowned on, and true Christians are being persecuted (as predicted). False prophets abound, with false doctrine promising gifts ( only given to and at the time of the prophets). I believe a Christian at the time of the Lord was a follower of Christ. Why should that change over 2000 years? Did a lot of these false churches exist then? No. They are a product of man, inspired by satanism, to detract from gods word. I do believe we are approaching the last days, and would encourage people to read their bible, and not be led by false teaching. If it’s not in scripture, why? I do hope in these times that people will open their hearts through sound scripture come to be saved by grace, through faith. I hope I’m one of them.

    How can you say that anyone is an idiot? Your better off to keep your opinion to yourself. Why stoop to such a level. WE all need to read the word of God and apply it to our lives. Jesus came so that we would have life and have it more abundantly. I don’t know what i would do without him in my life, he has never left me never forsaken me, He blesses me everyday and then some. Even if you don’t believei challenge you to read the word of God then you will see how relevant it is to our lives much wisdom you will find. A personal relationship with Jesus Christ is the best thing i have ever had in my life. I know the good work he began in me he shall finish until completed. He is the way the truth and the life and if you will trust in him no harm will come to you and if you fear all you have to do is call out to him and i know he will be there and he will rescue you. May the Lord keep all of you in his loving care in the days ahead and May we come to know him better during these times of uncertainty . For he does hold the future.

    “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise , as some count slackness, but is long-suffering towards us not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance” 2 Peter 3:9
    Dear Yohan, God is God and there is nothing you and satan can do about it. What would the Almighty God get from destroying lives; all the problems in this world are the wages of sin. God is love and a life giver. May he have mercy on you and all those who have refused to heed to the Holy words and only way of their maker. Human knowledge and wisdom would all pass away except His Holy Word. “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand”
    Jesus is Lord. Shalom!

    Corona virus is by no means new and it is global travel that is the engine
    of pandemic problems-especially air travel. SARS, & bird flu are similar
