  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johns_Hopkins_Center_for_Health_Security#Event_201 Quote - The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hosted Event 201, a high-level pandemic table top exercise on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY. The exercise illustrated areas where public/private partnerships will be necessary during the response to a severe coronavirus pandemic in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences.The exercise took place a few months before the World Health Organization announced the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the statement from Johns Hopkins specifically states that the exercise was not predictive of the current pandemic. In fact they say that "the inputs we used for modelling the potential impact of that fictional virus are not similar to CoV-2019". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hogziRgFFw&feature=emb_logo
  • Yes, we are seeing the fulfillment of these Scriptures firsthand!
  • Yes, and you can sure see the fulfillment of the governments not knowing what to do with the turbulent masses of mankind roaring like the sea and not being able to come together just like clay and iron don't mix. (Luke 21:25) “Also, there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and on the earth anguish of nations not knowing the way out because of the roaring of the sea and its agitation. (Daniel 2:41-44) “And just as you saw the feet and the toes to be partly of clay of a potter and partly of iron, the kingdom will be divided, but some of the hardness of iron will be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with soft clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom will be partly strong and partly fragile. 43 Just as you saw iron mixed with soft clay, they will be mixed with the people; but they will not stick together, one to the other, just as iron does not mix with clay. 44 “In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed. And this kingdom will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it alone will stand forever,
  • Without a doubt. 2 Timothy 3:1-5 refers to the last days, just before Jesus returns. Matthew 16:27 "For the Son of Man is going to come with His angels in the glory of His Father, and then He will repay each person according to what he has done."
  • Most definitely, and here is the proo from the scriptures. Critical Times Now THE Bible foretold that mankind would experience “critical times hard to deal with.” It describes this period as “the last days.” (2 Timothy 3:1-5; 2 Peter 3:3-7) Jesus Christ spoke of this same era when answering a question posed by his disciples regarding “the conclusion of the system of things.” (Matthew 24:3) Are we now living during the last days? Compare what the Bible foretold with the recent reports quoted below, and then judge for yourself. What the Bible foretold: global conflict​—Luke 21:10; Revelation 6:4. What recent reports say: “War-related deaths in the 20th century were more than three times greater than in all previous centuries combined, back to the birth of Christ.”​—Worldwatch Institute. What the Bible foretold: food shortages and disease​—Luke 21:11; Revelation 6:5-8. What recent reports say: In 2004 an estimated 863 million people on earth were undernourished, 7 million more than in 2003.​—United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. Some one billion people live in slums; 2.6 billion people lack basic sanitation; 1.1 billion people are without safe drinking water.​—Worldwatch Institute. Malaria affects 500 million people; 40 million people live with HIV-AIDS; tuberculosis killed 1.6 million people in 2005.​—World Health Organization. What the Bible foretold: the ruining of the earth​—Revelation 11:18. What recent reports say: “Human activities have taken the planet to the edge of a massive wave of species extinctions.” “Nearly two thirds of the services provided by nature to humankind are found to be in decline worldwide.”​—Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. “Human-made greenhouse gases have brought the Earth’s climate close to critical tipping points, with potentially dangerous consequences for the planet.”​—NASA, Goddard Institute for Space Studies. What the Bible foretold: the good news of God’s Kingdom preached earth wide​—Matthew 24:14; Revelation 14:6, 7. What recent reports say: During 2007, a peak of 6,957,854 Witnesses of Jehovah spent more than 1.4 billion hours preaching the good news about God’s Kingdom in 236 lands.​—2008 Yearbook of Jehovah’s Witnesses. As noted above, the Bible foretold that amid all the bad news, there would be reason for optimism. Jesus spoke of the “good news” of God’s Kingdom. What is God’s Kingdom? How is it linked to mankind’s hope for a better future? And how will God’s Kingdom affect you? The Bible foretold the world conditions we see today For more information on this subject please visit jworg.
  • Weren't people saying the world was gonna end on Y2K? And the whole Mayan calendar thing? How about the Planet X thing in 2017?
    • Texasescimo
      And what were those dates based on? Read the Bible, there is a BIG difference and nobody knows the day or the hour, not even Jesus. Only God knows the day and hour.
    • Archie Bunker
      Then why try to make comparisons to passages in the Bible? If God is the only one that knows a specific date the world is gonna end and it's preordained, why worry about it? Maybe it'll just be an asteroid that hits us and have nothing to do with Covid or race riots.
    • Texasescimo
      As I said, read the Bible. The planet is not going to end, just the wicked, just like Noah's day. God has given us work to do. (Matthew 24:14) And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. (2 Peter 2:5, 6) And he did not refrain from punishing an ancient world, but kept Noah, a preacher of righteousness, safe with seven others when he brought a flood upon a world of ungodly people. 6?And by reducing the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes, he condemned them, setting a pattern for ungodly people of things to come.

      We do not know the day or the hour, but we know that we are in the last days. (Matthew 24:3) While he was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached him privately, saying: “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your presence and of the conclusion of the system of things?” (Matthew 24:32, 33) “Now learn this illustration from the fig tree: Just as soon as its young branch grows tender and sprouts its leaves, you know that summer is near. 33?Likewise also you, when you see all these things, know that he is near at the doors. (2 Timothy 3:1-5) But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2?For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3?having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4?betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5?having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.

      What Is the Sign of “the Last Days,” or “End Times”? https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/end-times-prophecy-sign/
    • Archie Bunker
      I've read the Bible, but I don't buy into any of this "End Times" stuff.
    • Texasescimo
      So you have read it but you don't believe in the Bible? What translation did you read?
    • Archie Bunker
      I said, "I don't buy into any of this 'End Times' stuff." I've read the King James version, but why should that matter? I even went to a Catholic school for 10 years.
