Matthew 24:3-14 3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.
11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

WE PREACH THE BLESSED HOPE FOR THE FUTURE IN JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOUR
1Cor. 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: AND THAT NO MAN CAN SAY THAT JESUS IS THE LORD, BUT BY THE HOLY GHOST.
“Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.”
“And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.”
JESUS CHRIST RETURN FOR HIS CHURCH IS “IMMINENT”
Matt. 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Matt. 24:38 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,
Matt. 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be
DON’T WAIT FOR THE LAST MINUTE
We are currently in the “Birth Pangs” of the coming “7 year TRIBULATION” period, where all the Nations on Earth will be subject to God’s Wrath on an “UNGODLY” World. The Rapture of Jesus Christ Church is “TOTALLY” imminent; And what will follow after that will be massively more devastating that we are seeing right now (Read Revelation Ch 6 – 22) God is trying to get everyone’s attention to the coming Judgements; He does not want “ANYONE” to perish, but all to come to repentance. He loves us, but will not stand idly by and watch the World, (His Creation) turn to sin and debauchery). We are currently living in a fallen “Satanic” World where “EVIL”, is totally accepted, and God and his Love is being exponentially rejected. The time has come when God HAS TO intervene, and he is (The prophetic word listed in his Word the Bible is being fulfilled exponentially).
Rom. 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Rom. 2:5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God
Eph. 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Col. 3:6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
James 1:20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
Rev. 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
Rev. 14:19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Luke 21:26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken
Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them
SO WON’T YOU ACCEPT JESUS NOW AND BE REMOVED FROM THAT EVENT (OF TRIBULATION) AND LIVE FOREVER WITH JESUS IN THE FAMILY OF GOD THIS WORLD IS IN “DISTRESS” AND IT WILL SOON BE IN TRIBULATION?
2 “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)” (2nd Corinthians 2:6)
DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Reigning With The Lord
QUESTION: You state on your web site that after the tribulation, the church will inhabit the New Jerusalem, which sort of hovers over the earth. That’s what I have always believed, too. But Thessalonians 4:17 says: “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” If Jesus is ruling on earth during the Millennium and we shall forever be with the Lord, doesn’t that mean we will be on earth with Him?
ANSWER: Let’s stop and think about this.
The Kingdom of Alexander the Great stretched from Eastern Europe to the far side of India, but Alexander ruled it all from Babylon (Iraq). Kings of England who lived in London ruled over places like Canada, Australia, India, and Hong Kong all at the same time without actually being there. Just because a king rules over a place doesn’t mean he has to live there.
Also, when we got married my wife and I promised to be together till death do us part. But that doesn’t mean I started bringing her to work with me, nor did I accompany her everywhere she went. It means we have an exclusive life long relationship and are together in spirit even when we’re physically apart. I think that describes our relationship with the Lord, too.
If humans can accomplish this now without supernatural abilities, how much easier will it be after the rapture, when we have them?
Reigning With The Lord (CONTINUED)
QUESTION: In one of your answers you mentioned that we’ll be reigning with Jesus in New Jerusalem. Now, my question is this: How can we reign with Him? Does He need our assistance or advice? Maybe we’ll represent him in some part of the planet to other peoples and tribes? If so how can we then be at the same time in the New Jerusalem? Or will we just enjoy His presence and eternal fellowship as He will be simultaneously with us in the New Jerusalem and on the surface of the planet Earth?
ANSWER: Speaking of the Church, Rev. 5:10 says, “You have made us to be kings and priests to serve our God and we will reign on Earth.” In 1 Cor 6:2-3 Paul said we’ll judge both the world and the angels. The Greek word for judge also means to rule over or govern, and in Biblical times rulers were also judges.
In John 14:1-2 the Lord said that that our home will be “in my father’s house” and Rev 21:27 says that only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life can inhabit the New Jerusalem. Only the Church’s names are so inscribed. We’re not informed as to how all of this will translate into daily activity, but the Bible clearly promises these things.
Being with the Lord doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll be at His side every moment of every day, any more than a husband and wife who are “with” each other are always in the presence of each other. And remember, when Jesus came out of the tomb it was as a physical being (Luke 24:39). I take that to mean He’s a physical being today. When He told the disciples He would be with us, always, even to the end of the age (Matt. 28:20), He didn’t mean physically standing in our presence, He meant in spirit through the Holy Spirit. Therefore I don’t think of Him as physically being on Earth and in the New Jerusalem at the same time.
Finally, throughout history, earthly kings have ruled portions of their kingdoms without being physically present there. (Think of the King of England who also ruled Canada, Australia, India and Hong Kong at the same time.) Surely if they could do that in their natural states then it wouldn’t be a problem for the Lord, or for us either.
Living In Heaven, Reigning On Earth?
QUESTION: In your current article you say we will live in heaven with Christ, and yes I understand our home (or mansion) will be made there. How does Revelation 20:4-6 fit into this? If we are reigning with Christ for that 1000 years it must be on earth. God reigns in heaven forever and there is no other need to reign there.
ANSWER: You’re making an assumption that sounds logical but isn’t necessarily so. Who says we have to live on Earth? John 14:2-3 clearly says that Jesus went to Heaven to prepare a place for us there, and that’s where He’s going to take us in the Rapture, even though Rev. 5:10 indicates we’ll reign on Earth. Maybe we’ll be like the historical kings of England who lived in London but ruled over such geographically diverse places as Canada, Australia, India and Hong Kong without ever actually living in them.
We find out from Rev. 21 that the home Jesus built for us and will take us to is the New Jerusalem which is seen coming down out of heaven (see especially Rev. 21:27). But John never said that it will land on Earth. In fact a calculation of its dimensions shows that it’s far too big to fit in Israel or any other place on Earth. Personally, I believe the New Jerusalem, which is about 2/3 the size of the moon, will orbit Earth in close proximity like a satellite would. From there we’ll reign with Christ.
Conversely, while God reigns in Heaven, Ezekiel 43:7 tells us He will live in Israel on Earth during the Millennium.
Rev. 20:4-6, which is about tribulation martyrs and not the Church, says they are part of the first resurrection and will also reign with Christ, but are not called kings. The Bible doesn’t say where tribulation martyrs will live after their resurrection.

Coronavirus Outbreak Is An Excellent Opportunity For Faith Healers In The Charismatic Church To Show The Power Of God, So Why Aren’t They Doing It?
by Geoffrey Grider March 3, 2020
Today, we call on the mighty men of God in the Charismatic Church, men who have told us over and over and over that they are God’s vessels for miraculous healing, to step up and provide much-needed healing for people suffering from the coronavirus. Will you, Todd White? Will you, Benny Hinn? How about you, Kenneth Copeland? Of course, they will do no such thing, why? Because they can’t, those massive healing lines are for one purpose only. To heal the preacher’s bank accounts. Of course, feel free to prove me wrong, faith healers, go visit the people with the coronavirus, and be like Peter and heal them on the spot. That’s what the real apostles could do.
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:
Now would be an excellent time for the millionaire faith healers in the Charismatic Church to show the mighty power of God and ease the suffering of people suffering from the coronavirus
For the past ten years, we here at Now The End Begins have had a standing challenge to anyone in the Charismatic Church Movement, who have made themselves millionaires by pretending to be faith healers, to demonstrate their self-stated power heal the sick. Funny thing, though, not once has any of them taken us up on it. Hmm, I wonder why? 🤔 Could it be the ‘healing lines’ they put on in sports arenas are just smoke and mirrors to separate their bible illiterate followers from their hard-earned cash? Me thinks ’tis the case.
“And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.” Acts 3:4-7 (KJB)
Today, we call on the mighty men of God in the Charismatic Church, men who have told us over and over and over that they are God’s vessels for miraculous healing, to step up and provide much-needed healing for people suffering from the coronavirus. Will you, Todd White? Will you, Benny Hinn? How about you, Kenneth Copeland or Todd Bentley? Of course, they will do no such thing, why? Because they can’t, those massive healing lines are for one purpose only. To heal the preacher’s bank accounts. Of course, feel free to prove me wrong, faith healers, go visit the people with the coronavirus, and be like Peter and heal them on the spot. That’s what the real apostles could do.
WHY AREN’T CHARISMATIC FAITH HEALERS LIKE FRANCIS CHAN, TODD WHITE, AND TODD BENTLEY IN CHINA FIGHTING THE CORONAVIRUS?
FROM REFORMATION CHARLOTTE: Todd White, Todd Bentley, and now, interestingly but unsurprisingly, Francis Chan have told countless stories about how they’ve healed sick people, cured chronic and mortal diseases, and even raised people from the dead. Interestingly, however, there has never once been any unassailable proof of their claims.
Francis Chan — who recently departed the faith to join the faith-healer charismatic cult — recently told a story of how he healed countless people in Myanmar. “Every person I touched was healed. I have never experienced this in 52 years,” he told his audience at Moody Bible Institute. But what he didn’t tell them is that nobody saw it, nobody can attest to it, nobody can vouch for it, and, of course, there was no video or medical documentation of it. That is typical.
But what a better way to prove to the world that you’re not just another charismatic crazy quack with false testimonies of faux-healings than to go to China and start healing people of the worst pandemic of a deadly viral disease the world has seen in this generation? Why are they silent? Why aren’t they there, in China, healing people and ending this outbreak of coronavirus?
“Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.” Jude 1:11-13 (KJB)
When Jesus healed people, the world saw it. The people witnessed it. And the Scriptures attest to it. Jesus didn’t heal people for the simple purpose of just those he healed knowing about it. Jesus healed people to prove to the world who he was. Further, he gave the Apostles and certain others the power to perform miracles not simply for the purpose of lessening suffering in the world but to establish the authority of God’s Word of which they spoke and wrote. These miracles were rarely performed in obscure places but were done in the presence of the world to witness.
Today, those who claim the power to heal people, cure people of sickness, and even raise people from the dead interestingly only do it places of obscurity without any form of documentation or evidence. This is why it’s prevalent in third-world countries — like Myanmar. Because people like Francis Chan can come back and say “every person I touched was healed” without worrying about tribal people without any form of technology being able to out him. READ MORE:

GLORIA COPELAND CAN CONTROL THE WEATHER
FRANCIS CHAN HEALS EVERYONE HE TOUCHES
Pope John Paul II along with Billy Graham in the 20th Century established a doctrine of inclusivism which is a type of Universalism meaning that anyone who appears to be a “good person” is saved. Notice how Chan points out that everyone he touches got healed and how none of them believed in Christ. He knows exactly what he is doing.
NOW THE END BEGINS IS YOUR FRONT LINE DEFENCE AGAINST THE RISING TIDE OF DARKNESS IN THE LAST DAYS BEFORE THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH
GENERAL PROPHETIC NEWS SECTION:
As the Scandinavian nation braces itself for a repetition of the 2015 migrant crisis, its political establishment is deeply divided on how to proceed.
Sweden’s immigration debate has flared up again, as Turkey decided to let migrants through its borders.
While many journalists and experts see the situation as reminiscent of the 2015 migrant crisis, when Sweden alone took in 163,000 asylum seekers, today’s situation is largely different in terms of party politics.
The liberal-conservative Moderates, who under former Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt embraced mass immigration and were largely in favour of migrant-assisted population growth, went out with the message “Strengthen the Border”.
“Sweden’s refugee situation of 2015 must never be repeated! When Turkey’s president now opens the border to Europe for migrants, Sweden and the EU must act to protect the border”, the Moderates wrote. To protect Europe’s borders, the party suggested sending Swedish personnel and border guards to the EU’s external borders to assist Greece and Bulgaria, the two nations at the forefront of the new migrant crisis.
The national-conservative anti-immigration Sweden Democrats, currently polling as Sweden’s largest party, supported tougher anti-immigration measures.
“To adopt naive and destructive immigration laws in Sweden has been completely idiotic. Giving the EU control of Sweden’s border protection was an epic bad idea. The fact that the EU gave Turkey power over the EU border protection was at least as bad”, the party tweeted.
The outcome of Israel’s third election in 11 months points to at least half the electorate’s overwhelming desire for continuity in government rather than the chaos of another deadlocked ballot and the resulting economic havoc. For this reason, Binyamin Netanyahu’s Likud and its right-wing bloc came in first, trailed by their challenger, Benny Gantz’s Kahol Lavan.
Ganz and his three co-leaders failed to accurately diagnose the dominant popular mood, because all three of their election campaigns were firmly fixated on Netanyahu’s unfitness to govern under three corruption indictments and imminent trial on March 17. In any case, they argued, he would be too busy with the trial to exercise his duties diligently as prime minister.
And so, after Netanyahu trumpeted his party’s great victory on Monday night, March 2, at the end of voting, Kahol Lavon’s leaders waited in vain for good tidings.
What their strategists missed was that a weighty slice of the electorate was prepared to separate Netanyahu as politician and national leader from the persona that the police and prosecution had indicted for fraud, breach of faith and bribery. Some credited his allegations of a conspiracy by an adverse faction of the law enforcement body for trumping up the charges against him and subverting witnesses to this end.
The law clearly allows a prime minister to stay in office – even if convicted – until the appeals process is exhausted, promising long-drawn out years of litigation. In the meantime, enough voters decided to stick with Netanyahu and his loyal bloc of right-wing and religious parties for the sake of government continuity. While firmly in the lead after most of the ballots were counted by Wednesday noon, this bloc appears to be shy by one of two mandates of the magic 61 Knesset seats for establishing a majority government, and so final results are tensely awaited.
Kahol Lavan lags too far behind to bid against Netanyahu and is trying to raise the specter of a fourth election, as well as legislation for disqualifying the Likud leader from heading a government. A petition to this end was also filed with the Supreme Court. The justices face some tough deliberations before deciding to step into a constitutional minefield by nullifying a national election.
With 95.5pc of the votes tallied, the most likely outcome of this election, say DEBKAfile analysts, is that the president will entrust the incumbent prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu with forming a minority government in preference to a fourth election. Negotiations are already apace with potential defectors from the opposition camp to come aboard and fill in the vacancies for a durable administration.

There are many influential supporters of nuclear war, and some of these contend that the use of ‘low-yield’ and/or short-range weapons is practicable without the possibility of escalation to all-out Armageddon.
It is apparently widely believed in Washington that if a nuclear weapon is (comparatively) small, then it’s less dangerous than a big nuclear weapon.
In fact, the nuclear war envisaged in that scenario would be a global catastrophe — as would all nuclear wars, because there’s no way, no means whatever, of limiting escalation. Once a nuclear weapon has exploded and killed people, the nuclear-armed nation to which these people belonged is going to take massive action. There is no alternative, because no government is just going to sit there and try to start talking with an enemy that has taken the ultimate leap in warfare.
It is widely imagined — by many nuclear planners in the sub-continent, for example — that use of a tactical, a battlefield-deployed, nuclear weapon will in some fashion persuade the opponent (India or Pakistan) that there is no need to employ higher-capability weapons, or, in other words, longer range missiles delivering massive warheads. These people think that the other side will evaluate the situation calmly and dispassionately and come to the conclusion that at most it should itself reply with a similar weapon. But such a scenario supposes that there is good intelligence about the effects of the weapon that has exploded, most probably within the opponent’s sovereign territory. This is verging on the impossible.

It was a close election in Israel yesterday, at least that’s the impression one gets from mainstream media reports.
The truth of the matter, however, is that Israel isn’t divided neatly between Left and Right.
All of the post-election graphs and charts show the right-wing bloc lead by Prime Minister Netanyahu winning between 58-61 mandates, the left-wing bloc taking between 54-57 mandates, and Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beiteinu party sitting in the middle with 4-7 mandates.
The takeaway for those who just glance at the news (which is most people) is that both Netanyahu and “Blue and White” chief Benny Gantz have a relatively similar chance of forming the next government.
But this is a gross misrepresentation of reality.
While Netanyahu can indeed count on the backing of 58-61 fellow Members of Knesset, Gantz most certainly does not have the support of 54-57, as suggested by the aforementioned graphs.
The problem is that most mainstream media outlets count the Joint Arab List as part of the left-wing bloc. But they aren’t. Israeli politics is divided in three (at least) – Right, Left and Arabs.
Yes, there are many Arabs who count themselves as either right-wingers or left-wingers. But the Joint Arab List, which is projected to win between 15-17 seats, does not.
The Israeli Left still identifies itself as “Zionist,” which is just one of the reasons that the Joint Arab List will never sit in a government headed by Gantz. It might agree to back his coalition from the outside, but it won’t be part of his government.
This points to two truths that the media seems reluctant to focus on:
Of the three sides in Israeli politics, the election results show once again that the Right in Israel is far larger and more representative of the people than the Left;
The best Gantz could hope for is a minority coalition of around 39 seats, and thus a dangerously unstable government and guaranteed early elections in the near future.
A firm plurality of Israelis want a right-wing government, that much is clear, as is the fact that Netanyahu remains the only politician with any possibility of finally giving Israel a government and moving us forward.
COVID-19 is an extremely deadly virus, and nobody should be trying to downplay the severity of this outbreak. By now, you have probably heard a lot of people try to convince you that COVID-19 is not that dangerous because the flu has killed far more people this winter. And that is true. But what they aren’t telling you is that the death rate from the flu is extremely low. Tens of thousands of Americans die from the flu each year, but if this coronavirus spreads all over the planet the death toll will be in the tens of millions. This coronavirus outbreak is likely only in the very early stages, and if it becomes as widespread as the flu, it will become a public health crisis unlike anything we have ever faced in modern times.

It looks like the Chinese started something…
Following reports that Beijing had “quarantined” dirty cash, the WHO warned on Monday that the virus could survive on banknotes, potentially spreading Covid-19 within communities, and across the world. To reduce the risk of being infected by money, the NGO advised citizens in countries struggling with outbreaks to favor digital payments when possible, the Daily Telegraph reported.
That the WHO is telling the public to avoid cash is hardly a surprise: research has found that coronaviruses have been found to live on surfaces for as long as 9 days.
During the statement, a WHO spokesman referenced a Bank of England study claiming that banknotes “can carry bacteria or viruses” and urged people to wash their hands. Other studies have shown that 90% of US $1 bills had bacteria present, and one Swiss study found that viruses had survive on the faces of Swiss francs for days.
THE WHO’S WARNINGS FOLLOW the People’s Bank of China last month started disinfecting currency deposited at Chinese banks using ultraviolet light, before quarantining the bills for a week before releasing them back into circulation.
Brits, and their fellow Europeans, should be increasingly careful as the virus spreads across Europe, the WHO warned, via the Telegraph:
“We know that money changes hands frequently and can pick up all sorts of bacteria and viruses,” a spokesman told the Telegraph.
“We would advise people to wash their hands after handling banknotes, and avoid touching their face. When possible, it would also be advisable to use contactless payments to reduce the risk of transmission.”
Of course, that one of the world’s major NGOs is seizing the opportunity to proclaim the virtues of ‘paperless’ money is hardly a surprise: the globalist push toward a ‘cashless society’ has been underway for years now, having had its biggest successes in Scandinavia. Sweden has gone virtually “cashless”, and in such a short time, they’ve already confronted the many drawbacks of relying exclusively on digital money.
…the virus spreads throughout the US and Europe and governments respond the same way China’s government has; martial law and full blown concentration camp culture. This would lead to civil war in the US because we are armed and many people will shoot anyone trying to put us into quarantine camps. Europe is mostly screwed.
The establishment then suggests that paper money be removed from the system because it is a viral spreader. China is already pushing this solution now.
Magically, we find ourselves in a cashless society in a matter of a year or two; which is what the globalists have been demanding for years. Everything goes digital, and thus even local economies become completely centralized as private trade dies.
A viral outbreak is a significant danger to us all, but an even greater threat is the supposed cure. Trading our economic and social freedom in the name of stopping the coronavirus? No matter how deadly the bug, it’s just not worth it.

“If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.”
Emboldened by the citizenry’s inattention and willingness to tolerate its abuses, the government has weaponized one national crisis after another in order to expands its powers.
The war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on illegal immigration, asset forfeiture schemes, road safety schemes, school safety schemes, eminent domain: all of these programs started out as legitimate responses to pressing concerns and have since become weapons of compliance and control in the police state’s hands.
It doesn’t even matter what the nature of the crisis might be—civil unrest, the national emergencies, “unforeseen economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency, pervasive public health emergencies, and catastrophic natural and human disasters”—as long as it allows the government to justify all manner of government tyranny in the so-called name of national security.
Now we find ourselves on the brink of a possible coronavirus contagion.
I’ll leave the media and the medical community to speculate about the impact the coronavirus will have on the nation’s health, but how will the government’s War on the Coronavirus impact our freedoms?
For a hint of what’s in store, you can look to China—our role model for all things dystopian—where the contagion started.
In an attempt to fight the epidemic, the government has given its surveillance state apparatus—which boasts the most expansive and sophisticated surveillance system in the world—free rein. Thermal scanners using artificial intelligence (AI) have been installed at train stations in major cities to assess body temperatures and identify anyone with a fever. Facial recognition cameras and cell phone carriers track people’s movements constantly, reporting in real time to data centers that can be accessed by government agents and employers alike. And coded color alerts (red, yellow and green) sort people into health categories that correspond to the amount of freedom of movement they’re allowed: “Green code, travel freely. Red or yellow, report immediately.”
Mind you, prior to the coronavirus outbreak, the Chinese surveillance state had already been hard at work tracking its citizens through the use of some 200 million security cameras installed nationwide. Equipped with facial recognition technology, the cameras allow authorities to track so-called criminal acts, such as jaywalking, which factor into a person’s social credit score.
Social media credit scores assigned to Chinese individuals and businesses categorize them on whether or not they are “good” citizens. A real-name system—which requires people to use government-issued ID cards to buy mobile sims, obtain social media accounts, take a train, board a plane, or even buy groceries—coupled with social media credit scores ensures that those blacklisted as “unworthy” are banned from accessing financial markets, buying real estate or travelling by air or train. Among the activities that can get you labeled unworthy are taking reserved seats on trains or causing trouble in hospitals.
That same social credit score technology used to identify, track and segregate citizens is now one of China’s chief weapons in its fight to contain the coronavirus from spreading. However, it is far from infallible and a prime example of the difficulties involved in navigating an autonomous system where disembodied AI systems call the shots. For instance, one woman, who has no symptoms of the virus but was assigned a red code based on a visit to her hometown, has been blocked from returning to her home and job until her color code changes. She has been stuck in this state of limbo for weeks with no means of challenging the color code or knowing exactly why she’s been assigned a red code.
Fighting the coronavirus epidemic has given China the perfect excuse for unleashing the full force of its surveillance and data collection powers. The problem, as Eamon Barrett acknowledges in Fortune magazine, is what happens after: “Once the outbreak is controlled, it’s unclear whether the government will retract its new powers.”
The lesson for the ages: once any government is allowed to expand its powers, it’s almost impossible to pull back.
Meanwhile, here in the U.S., the government thus far has limited its coronavirus preparations to missives advising the public to stay calm, wash their hands, and cover their mouths when they cough and sneeze.
Don’t go underestimating the government’s ability to lock the nation down if the coronavirus turns into a pandemic, however. After all, the government has been planning and preparing for such a crisis for years now.
The building blocks are already in place for such an eventuality: the surveillance networks, fusion centers and government contractors that already share information in real time; the government’s massive biometric databases that can identify individuals based on genetic and biological markers; the militarized police, working in conjunction with federal agencies, ready and able to coordinate with the federal government when it’s time to round up the targeted individuals; the courts that will sanction the government’s methods, no matter how unlawful, as long as it’s done in the name of national security; and the detention facilities, whether private prisons or FEMA internment camps, that have been built and are waiting to be filled.
Now all of this may sound far-fetched to you now, but we’ve already arrived at the dystopian futures prophesied by George Orwell’s 1984, Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, and Philip K. Dick’s Minority Report.
It won’t take much more to push us over the edge into Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium, in which the majority of humanity is relegated to an overpopulated, diseased, warring planet where the government employs technologies such as drones, tasers and biometric scanners to track, target and control the populace.
Mind you, while these technologies are already in use today and being hailed for their potentially life-saving, cost-saving, time-saving benefits, it won’t be long before the drawbacks to having a government equipped with technology that makes it all-seeing, all-knowing, and all-powerful——helped along by the citizenry—far outdistance the benefits.
On a daily basis, Americans are relinquishing (in many cases, voluntarily) the most intimate details of who we are—their biological makeup, our genetic blueprints, and our biometrics (facial characteristics and structure, fingerprints, iris scans, etc.)—in order to navigate an increasingly technologically-enabled world.
Consider all the ways you continue to be tracked, hunted, hounded, and stalked by the government and its dubious agents:
By tapping into your phone lines and cell phone communications, the government knows what you say. By uploading all of your emails, opening your mail, and reading your Facebook posts and text messages, the government knows what you write. By monitoring your movements with the use of license plate readers, surveillance cameras and other tracking devices, the government knows where you go. By churning through all of the detritus of your life—what you read, where you go, what you say—the government can predict what you will do.
Has the Federal Reserve finally met an opponent that it won’t be able to defeat? Ever since the last financial crisis, unprecedented intervention by the Fed at key moments has kept the economy and the financial system relatively stable. No matter what has come along, it has seemed like the Federal Reserve has always had an answer, and this has created an environment that has enabled the most ridiculous stock market bubble in U.S. history to grow to epic proportions. But now COVID-19 is perhaps the greatest challenge that the Fed has faced in modern times. No matter how low interest rates are pushed, and no matter how much helicopter money the Fed drops from the sky, it isn’t going to cause fearful Americans to go shopping, take trips or start businesses. And nothing that the Fed can do will be able to mitigate the severe disruptions to global supply chains that we are currently witnessing. (READ MORE…)

LATEST CORONAVIRUS NEWS CLIPS:
TWO STRAINS ARE SPREADING AROUND THE WORLD – 70% INFECTED HAVE CAUGHT MORE AGGRESSIVE AND CONTAGIOUS TYPE
https://endtimeheadlines.org/2020/03/two-strains-are-spreading-around-the-world-70-infected-have-caught-more-aggressive-and-contagious-type/ – Mar 4, 2020
(Daily Mail) – The coronavirus has mutated into at least two separate strains since the outbreak began in December, according to Chinese scientists. Researchers say there are now two types of the same coronavirus infecting people – and most people seem to have caught the most aggressive form of it. At least 94,000 people have been infected around the world and almost 3,200 have died, while 50,000 have recovered from the disease.
The team of experts from Beijing and Shanghai said 70 percent of people have caught the most aggressive strain of the virus but that this causes such bad illness that it has struggled to spread since early January. Now an older, milder strain seems to be becoming more common. Knowing that the virus can mutate may make it harder to keep track of or to treat, and raises the prospect that recovered patients could become reinfected.
The experts cautioned that the study that discovered the mutation only used a tiny amount of data – 103 samples – so more research is needed. The research was done by experts at Peking University in Beijing, Shanghai University and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. In their study of genes in 103 samples of the coronavirus, which is named SARS-CoV-2 and causes a disease called COVID-19, they revealed they had discovered two distinct versions of it, which they named L and S. They claimed that around 70 percent of patients have caught the L strain, which is more aggressive and faster-spreading than S. FULL REPORT:
The Coming Event Of The Great Tribulation As Found In The Time Of Jacob’s Trouble Explained In Glorious Detail
https://www.nowtheendbegins.com/coming-event-of-great-tribulation-by-god-as-found-in-the-time-of-jacobs-trouble-explained/ – by Geoffrey Grider
When God decided to test Job, and thoroughly purge him of his self-righteousness, He used a very unlikely means by which to accomplish it. God sent Satan to put Job through a fiery trial that brought him certainly to the end of himself, and nearly to the end of his life. In the time of Jacob’s trouble, God will again send Satan against His chosen people the Jews, and in that time obedience to God will absolutely come at the cost of your own life.
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:
God’s covenant with Israel and the Jews is eternal, and cannot be broken, and God is not going to leave them in their fallen condition. The time of Jacob’s trouble is going to be the means by which He restores His chosen people back to a right relationship to Himself.
There is a time coming where God will execute judgement over the whole world, and it will be a literal, physical and visible display of His power on a world that has rejected Him. It is discussed in great and graphic detail in both the Old and New Testaments, and there is more prophecy related to this time period than any other in the whole of the Bible.
It is the time of Jacob’s trouble. Who’s trouble? Jacob’s trouble! And what was Jacob’s name changed to? Israel.
“Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.” Jeremiah 30:7 (KJV)
There is so much information on this subject that putting it into a single article like this is a daunting task. No matter what I write, I will be leaving out so many other details. But the Lord has put on my heart in my personal Bible study over the last few weeks to talk about this, so I have every confidence that the Holy Spirit will say what needs to be said on this topic.
First of all, the time of Jacob’s trouble is the exact same event Jesus mentions in Matthew 24 where He prophesies about the coming time of great tribulation that will target the entire world in general, and the Jews in particular.
“But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Matthew 24:20,21 (KJV)
The entire chapter of Matthew 24 shows how the Jews and Israel are the main focus of this judgement, but it will affect the entire world. The angel Gabriel in the book of Daniel, in talking about this time period, tells us very clearly what people and what place are the main subjects.
“Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression…” Daniel 9:24 (KJV)
Who were Daniel’s people? His fellow Jews, of course. What was the holy city? Only one city the Bible ever says was the holy city, and that is Jerusalem. What is the purpose of the time of Jacob’s trouble? It will be the time when God will reclaim and restore His Bride, the Jewish people.
Israel was destroyed in 70 AD, and the Jews were scattered according to prophecy. In 1948, they were miraculously re-gathered in exactly the same place from which they were dispersed. But their re-gathering was a physical one, not a spiritual one. Israel in 2018 is no closer to God than any other nation on the face of the earth, and in some respects, is much farther away.
TEL AVIV LGBTQ PRIDE WEEK IS WORLD’S LARGEST CELEBRATION OF WHAT GOD DESTROYED BOTH SODOM AND GOMORRAH FOR
Tel Aviv is THE GAY CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, surpassing even than that of ultra-Liberal San Francisco. Hospitals in Israel perform lots of abortions and even many Third Trimester abortions. Yes, they like to reference their connection to the scriptures, it certainly boosts tourism, but modern-day Israel bears no resemblance to the Israel of the Old Testament where the Spirit of God dwelt in the Temple.
God’s covenant with Israel and the Jews is eternal, and cannot be broken, and God is not going to leave them in their fallen condition. The time of Jacob’s trouble is going to be the means by which He restores His chosen people back to a right relationship to Himself. But it is going to come at a horrific cost that rightly cannot be properly imagined, no matter how much you study it in the scriptures.
Here are a few easy-to-digest bullet points on how that restoration will happen:
GOD WILL USE SATAN AS HIS ROD OF JUDGMENT:
“O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.” Isaiah 10:5,6 (KJV).
When God decided to test Job, and thoroughly purge him of his self-righteousness, He used a very unlikely means by which to accomplish it. God sent Satan to put Job through a fiery trial that brought him certainly to the end of himself, and nearly to the end of his life. In the time of Jacob’s trouble, God will again send Satan against His chosen people the Jews, and in that time obedience to God will absolutely come at the cost of your own life. When Jesus opens the First Seal in Revelation 6, Antichrist is released, and the Jews will follow him as thinking that he is their promised Messiah.
THIS JUDGMENT COMES BECAUSE OF ISRAEL’S DISOBEDIENCE:
“Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have despised the law of the LORD, and have not kept his commandments, and their lies caused them to err, after the which their fathers have walked: But I will send a fire upon Judah, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem. Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they sold the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of shoes;” Amos 2:4-6 (KJV).
The Jews have forgotten that they are God’s chosen people, and the time of Jacob’s trouble is their wake-up call to return to Him. Even in most Jewish synagogues today, there is no real mention of the Law of the Lord, there is no relationship between the Jews and God. Yes, the call themselves the ‘people of the Book’, but that’s mostly lip service. The Jews are still serving other gods, and the actual God who swore a covenant with Abraham, will not all that to stand. He would be neither a good or righteous God if He did.
ONLY A REMNANT OF THE JEWS WILL SURVIVE:
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness. For the Lord GOD of hosts shall make a consumption, even determined, in the midst of all the land.” Isaiah 10:20-23 (KJV).
Matthew 24 amplifies the prophecies of Isaiah, and show us that the Jews will flee to the red rock city of Selah Petra. That will be the only safe hiding place throughout the entire time of Jacob’s trouble. Everyone else has one of two choices they can make. Either take the Mark of the Beast and live through the tribulation but be damned to Hell, as seen here –
“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” Revelation 14:9-11 (KJV).
Or you can become a tribulation saint and get your head cut off.
“And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.” Revelation 6:11 (KJV).
So where will the Church be when all this is taking place? The Bible clearly shows us that the Church is removed from the earth just before the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble. We call this event the Pre-tribulation Rapture, and it is the next event on the timetable to take place. The Church, made up of born again Jews and Gentiles, is not removed for any other reason than we simply don’t belong there.
WHEN WE GOT SAVED, we were judged, found guilty, and redeemed by the precious Blood of the Lamb slain at Calvary. We have already been reclaimed, and no further action is needed. We will have the Judgement Seat of Christ in Heaven, yes, but that is a judgement on works and has nothing to do with salvation. The time of Jacob’s trouble will deal with the salvation of God’s people.
In closing, allow me to address one more point that seems to confuse a lot of inexperienced students of scripture. The false teaching that the Church will be taken out halfway or three-fourths of the way through the time of Jacob’s trouble, the so-called Pre-wrath Rapture heresy, came about by wrongly dividing verses like these:
“Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” Revelation 12:12 (KJV)
People have read verses like that, and wrongly made a division between the time of Jacob’s trouble, the wrath of the Devil and the wrath of the Lamb. All of it, the entire 7 year period, is the wrath of God, and as previously noted, God uses Satan as His ‘rod of judgement’. The Pre-wrath Rapture people say that the Church will be here for the first 3.5 years, then taken out when the Antichrist forces people to take the Mark of the Beast. The Bible teaches no such thing. Antichrist is sent out over the world as the very first event of the time of Jacob’s trouble, and who sends him out? Jesus does! Antichrist is the ‘strong delusion’ that comes upon people AFTER the Rapture of the Church takes place.
“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:” 2 Thessalonians 2:11 (KJV)
The pre-wrath rapture was conceived in the 1970’s by a man named Robert Van Kampen, who died in 1999. This view was then picked up and endorsed by Marvin Rosenthal who wrote his book ‘The Pre-Wrath Rapture Of The Church‘. The “Pre-Wrath” view of the Rapture argues that the first three-fourths of the Tribulation is the wrath of Man and the wrath of Satan, and not the wrath of God. Therefore, the proponents of this view argue that the Church will suffer through the first three-quarters of the Tribulation since the Church is promised protection only from the wrath of God.
THE COMING LITERAL, VISIBLE AND PHYSICAL THOUSAND YEAR REIGN OF JESUS CHRIST ON THIS EARTH FROM JERUSALEM
The time of Jacob’s trouble ends at the Battle of Armageddon with the arrival of King Jesus and His warrior Church army on white horses at the Second Coming. This will establish a period of time the Bible calls the Thousand Year Reign of Christ. Satan will be bound for that time, and then let out once more just prior to his being cast into the Lake of Fire after the Battle of Gog and Magog.
I hope this has shed a little more light on the massive subject of the coming time of Jacob’s trouble, who this time period is for, and the reason why God has determined it to be so. If you have any questions, please comment below and I will be my best to answer them.

SEEK THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WHILE HE STILL CAN BE FOUND – HE IS COMING QUICKLY – IT IS A “FREE” GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE.
2 “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)” (2nd Corinthians 2:6)
“WHAT IS THE PRAYER OF SALVATION?”
Many people ask, “Is there a prayer I can pray that will guarantee my salvation?” It is important to remember that salvation is not received by reciting a prayer or uttering certain words. The Bible nowhere records a person’s receiving salvation by a prayer. Saying a prayer is not the biblical way of salvation.
The biblical method of salvation is faith in Jesus Christ. John 3:16 tells us, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Salvation is gained by faith (Ephesians 2:8), by receiving Jesus as Savior (John 1:12), and by fully trusting Jesus alone (John 14:6; Acts 4:12), not by reciting a prayer.
The biblical message of salvation is simple, clear, and amazing at the same time. We have all committed sin against God (Romans 3:23). Other than Jesus Christ, there is no one who has lived an entire life without sinning (Ecclesiastes 7:20). Because of our sin, we have earned judgement from God—death (Romans 6:23). Because of our sin and its deserved punishment, there is nothing we can do on our own to make ourselves right with God. As a result of His love for us, God became a human being in the Person of Jesus Christ. Jesus lived a perfect life and always taught the truth. However, humanity rejected Jesus and put Him to death by crucifying Him. Though that horrible act killed the only truly innocent man, our salvation was obtained. Jesus died in our place. He took the burden and judgement of our sin upon Himself (2 Corinthians 5:21). Jesus was then resurrected (1 Corinthians 15), proving that His payment for sin was sufficient and that He had overcome sin and death. As a result of Jesus’ sacrifice, God offers us salvation as a gift. God calls us all to repent of our sins (Acts 17:30) and have faith in Christ as the full payment of our sins (1 John 2:2). Salvation is gained by receiving the gift God offers us, not by praying a certain prayer.
Now, that does not mean prayer cannot be involved in receiving salvation. If you understand the gospel, believe it to be true, and have accepted Jesus as your salvation, it is good and appropriate to express that faith to God in prayer. Communicating with God through prayer can be a way to progress from accepting facts about Jesus to fully trusting in Him as Savior. Prayer can be connected to the act of placing your faith in Jesus alone for salvation.
Again, though, it is crucially important that you do not base your salvation on having said a prayer. Reciting a prayer cannot save you! If you want to receive the salvation that is available through Jesus, place your faith in Him. Fully trust His death as the sufficient sacrifice for your sins. Completely rely on Him alone as your Savior. That is the biblical method of salvation. If you have received Jesus as your Savior, by all means, say a prayer to God. Tell God how thankful you are for Jesus. Offer praise to God for His love and sacrifice. Thank Jesus for dying for your sins and providing salvation for you. That is the biblical connection between salvation and prayer.
