After seeing the world map on TV showing the countries (as red dots) where the coronavirus has struck, I thought about how God is maybe allowing this virus to get our attention – and cause us to turn back to him.
I believe we have brought this on ourselves by disobeying the Bible and God’s commandments and by our ungodly lifestyles. While many have heard this theory before, I believe it is very applicable right now.

The history of America is largely founded on the Pilgrims and Puritans, our forefathers who honored God and were honored by him for their lifestyles. Today the ideas of honor and obedience are replaced by “doing your own thing,” rejecting the church in general and ridiculing God’s word (the Bible).
So this is where we are today – realizing the “wrath of God,” in part due to a virus which emanated from mankind. I have lived through two wars but have never been through anything like this, a worldwide pandemic.
May we wake up and seek God, and honor him, before it is too late for us!
Death may possibly come from the virus, or Jesus could come again at any time, as the Bible describes.
