Prepare for what is coming our way…Most have not!

Commentary By:  Gordon King

For years now the world knew that a global pandemic such as COVID-19 was coming!  They knew that sooner or later the world would be hit with a virus that would overtake it with fear and panic, that it would be overwhelming and disastrous to society and to the economy, they knew it!

But what was done about it before hand, how did the world prepare for it?  They didn’t, at least very, very little!

I watched a documentary a couple of days ago called “The Coming Pandemic”, it was produced in the year 2005.  If I didn’t know the date that it was made I would have thought that it was made just a month or two ago.

The first minute or two the video quality is a little grainy but it gets better.  The frightening thing about this documentary was how it actually resembles what is taking place today, a global pandemic of a virus almost exactly resembling COVID-19, empty streets, lack of food and supplies, the threat of people becoming angry and taking things into their own hands because they do not have an income and are hungry!  They even talked about “essential workers”, using that exact term!  Amazing.

But this was not the only video or book that talks about a coming worldwide pandemic, and if you google “the coming pandemic” then you will see many, many posts talking about the very same thing years beforehand, and I know that there are also many other books and movies about pandemics, I just have read or seen them yet so I don’t know how accurate they are compared with what is happening in the world today.

The point is my friends that the world knew this was going to happen yet did nothing to prepare for it!  Why is that?  Why weren’t the governments preparing with personal protective equipment and ventilators years ago?!  And now ill prepared the world is scrambling to find these things as if they had no idea whatsoever that this could ever happen!  Amazing!!!  And we hear governors complaining daily that they don’t have what they need, but why in the world did they themselves not prepare for it instead of blaming everyone else?!

It really amazes me at how leaders in the world seem to be in shock at what is happening, it’s not as if they were not forewarned!  They most certainly were, over and over again!

Why did some people know that this pandemic was coming, and some with what seems to be pinpoint accurracy?  It’s almost as if this virus may have been pre-planned years ahead of time, yet the pre-planning for the fallout from it seems almost non-existent!  Does this seem strange to anyone other than me?

Coming from a biblical perspective I would say that this is a sign of the times my friends, both the virus and the reaction to it.  But I would also add that the unpreparedness for it is also a sign of not only the times but of the world!  The world is unprepared for what is soon coming upon it, not only from this virus and the world’s reaction to it, but to everything, from the events of the Tribulation period to the coming of Jesus Christ, from being lost and destined to eternity in hell and that means forever!  The world is unprepared!

I’ve been warning people for years now to prepare for hard times, to prepare for disaster, and here we are now.  People are already running out of food and the stay at home orders are relatively new, what’s to happen in say 30 or 60 days from now?  What if this thing drags out for 6 more months, then what?!

We should be prepared for disaster, but we should also and most importantly be prepared for our eternal destiny!  What happens in this world is temporary, but our eternal destiny is just that, eternal, it will last forever and ever more!

The world is without excuse when it comes to not accepting God!

Romans 1:20

“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,”

All of us have the chance to accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, there is no excuse!

The coming pandemic is here folks, and for many people its too late to make any preparations for it!  Disasters come and disasters go, some much, much worse than others, we know that they will come but what do we do about it beforehand to prepare?  That’s what really matters, just as is what we do and how we act when they do come.  Do we act or do we react?

All of us are without excuse regarding God, and God has warned the world beforehand regarding the rapture, the Tribulation period, and our eternal destiny either with Him or without Him!  It’s our choice to prepare beforehand just as it was with this virus or any other disaster coming our way.

We can prepare for coming disasters by stocking up on long term food storage, water, medical supplies, medications, cash on hand, and weapons for self-defense, these things are the least that we can do other than doing nothing at all, which I believe is what most people have chosen to do, either by choice, ignorance, procrastination, or a combination of the same.

By the same token we can prepare for the rapture of the church, the Tribulation period, and our eternal destiny by acknowledging our sin, confessing our sin before God, repenting of our sin, and accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior!  This my friends is not the least that we can do to prepare for our eternal destiny but the most that we can do!  By not doing this or by choosing to do nothing at all we are choosing a one way ticket straight to hell forever!  It guarantees us that we will miss the rapture of the church and that we will go into the Tribulation period but we won’t make it through!  Most people have chosen to not accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, either by choice, ignorance, procrastination, or a combination of the same!  But there is no excuse!!!

God is warning the world right this very moment in time, warning that He is God, that He is the only God of the universe, that He reigns supreme, that He is the Creator of all things, and that without Him we are all doomed for eternal disaster!  What is happening now in this world is nothing compared to what is coming my friends, nothing!  You think that it’s bad now, just wait!!!

Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength,

A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah

There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved;
God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
He uttered His voice, the earth melted.

The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

Come, behold the works of the Lord,
Who has made desolations in the earth.
He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariot in the fire.

10 Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!

11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

Take refuge in the Lord our God for He is our comfort and our shelter, do not be dismayed when the nations shake from the fear of uncertainty for He is our strength and a very present help in times of trouble, and even though the world may be falling apart all around us we will not fear for He is with us!  Amen.

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!

  1. Thank you Gordon
    I trust you are keeping well? I am at home and planting a garden with some vegetables.
    Bill Gates spoke about the coming pandemic and is heavily into promoting vaccinations as you know. I just pray and trust, there is nothing else to do, all control has been taken out of our hands but as believers we do not lose sight of our Sovereign God and He never loses sight of us either . This kind of feels like a reset button has been pressed and perhaps people now have the time to think about their own mortality and prepare spiritually. Some will and some won’t but everyone is being given the wake up call I think!

    God bless you!

    I am feeling better after my illness but not feeling back to “normal” yet, (perhaps I had the Coronavirus?).

    Good to hear that you are planting some vegetables, I will do the same soon, it’s still a little too cold here at night.

    Doesn’t it seem a little bit strange that Bill Gates is promoting vaccinations for everyone in the world? I mean, who is this guy? He’s not a politician, we haven’t voted him into any office, yet there he is in everyone’s face pushing hard to vaccinate the entire population, and with what? Microchip implants?! If you ask me he seems sort of Antichrist like, spouting to have the answers to the world’s ills, pushing for a “mark” to be placed into all of us so that we can buy, sell, and trade! Not that I believe that he is the Antichrist, just noticing the similarities. But I do believe that he is a foreshadow of what is to come very soon! He is a globalist and pushing very hard for a one world government, and ID2020 is a part of that plan, and Bill Gates is one of the designers and financial supporters of that plan which includes vaccinations for the world, which include microchip implants!

    It all seems surreal but it is really happening sister! People need to wake up! Our freedoms and rights are being taken away from us bit by bit and piece by piece. And it won’t be long before people like us (Christians) are censored online, we won’t be able to share the truth, and if we do then we will be threatened with punishment for it!

    We can see it happening in real time, in real life, and it’s effecting everyone in the world now! All of this tells me that we are getting very close to the beginning of the Tribulation period, and if that’s the case then we are even that much closer to the rapture of the church! Amen.

    God bless Christine! Maranatha! Gordon

  3. I agree with you Gordon, we only trust God He will be with us no matter what we have to go through, if we can’t post encouragement online for one another then we must resort to other methods. This has all come upon us so suddenly but we know Satan knows his time is short so is ramping things up. I have no desire for this life here in this mortal body anymore, what we cling too here is nothing in comparison to what has been prepared for us. We may get to meet Jesus face to face before much longer!
    God bless you and keep you safe!

    Amen sister! It seems as though the rapture could be just right around the corner the way things are going in this world. Take care.

    God bless! Maranatha!
