Coronavirus: Bible expert warned of pandemic in 2005 – “God told you it would happen.”

With the Coronavirus pandemic causing global panic, Christians have been claiming that COVID-19 is in fact a sign of the end of times, as prophesied in the Bible’s Book of Revelation.

Some Christian evangelists have stated that the coronavirus is representative of one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, whose arrival is said to precede the end of the world.

However, these claims are not new, and Christians have warned of widespread plagues and pestilence for many decades.

People have been taking to Twitter to express their thoughts and opinions, with one user stating:

“This plague of coronavirus shaking the world now mercilessly is a mystery hidden in the Bible prophecy of the beginning of birth pain in Matthew 24 #BreakingOfTheSeals”

Edward P. Harrup also tweeted:

“Why are you surprised about the Corona virus God told you it would happen. Read the Bible.”

Another Twitter user said:

“Ebola, corona virus, famine, natural calamities all culminated in an End TIME foretold in Bible.”

In a 2005 article written by Fred Dattolo and published in ‘The Trumpet’, he claimed the “galloping hoof beats of the four horses are getting ever louder and closer” as the end times approach.

According to this claim, the Four Horsemen who represent Death, War, Famine and Pestilence or Plague have real-world analogues.

The fourth horseman is said to ride a pale white or green horse, spreading his disease to a quarter of the world.

Dattolo stated that:

 “The four horsemen are depicted in the book of Revelation Chapter 6 as the first four of seven ‘seals’.

“These seals are benchmarks of end-time events leading up to and including the return of Jesus Christ.

“John witnessed these vivid events in a vision sent by God the Father to Jesus Christ, who gave it to an angel to reveal to John – Revelation 1:1.

 “Then John, as he was instructed, recorded what he saw (verse 19) in brilliant prophetic imagery.”

So why are people linking Coronavirus to this description?

Coronavirus attacks the respiratory system, with suffers having flu-like symptoms and pneumonia.

With the disease proving fatal to many, and not just those with underlying health conditions are, although according to health officials, the elderly and vulnerable are still at greater risk.

The World Health Organization (WHO) said:

“Illness due to COVID-19 infection is generally mild, especially for children and young adults.

“However, it can cause serious illness: about one in every five people who catch it need hospital care.

“It is therefore quite normal for people to worry about how the COVID-19 outbreak will affect them and their loved ones.”

      If you’ve studied the Book of Revelation for 40 years, I’m surprised you have failed to understand that the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse has already been fulfilled on 9/11. Four horsemen/ four aircraft?
      One has a PAIR OF SCALES shouting “a bushel of wheat for a shekel..etc…. he’s TRADING! (World Trade Centre?!
      The PALE horse actually says a “chloros” horse which is green! It’s given power over a QUARTER of the world.
      Islam accounts for 23.5% of the population of the world – as near as dammit to a quarter! The coronavirus prophecy is in Daniel 8 about the Cleansing of the Sanctuary which sounds like the Coronavirus!
      So you’re right. The Bible does prophesy the Coronavirus. You just got the wrong prophecy!!!

    In the real world application of human enslavement 2020 was the time limit for the new world order to start the bilderburgers protocol 9 is headed by the council of nine or as you probably know it as the council of Rome, it was always planned that an affective ww3 would most likely to through bio weapons, spiritually this does tie into biblical prophecy most likely Daniels 3,5 years of persecution many Christians are quietly being put to death in the Muslim world and the world’s free press are quietly ignoring it so folks we are at the beginning of the Bible’s prophecies, with worst to come and it’s likely no nuclear weapons will be used until after the rapture acures I wish I could say more especially the tie in with fema camps and technology etc and a more detailed timeline but this isn’t the right medium to go into great detail just one last thought all the world’s leaders are fully complicit in acting against their respective citizens don’t believe what they say and be careful what vaccines you accept

    Yes, it is an end-time plague, as Jesus predicted. We are also have plagues of locusts, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and now economic depression. The rise of the Antichrist is just around the corner. www . usbible prophecy . com.
