"The grace of God and His goodness and His kindness and his mercy will be shown in places in 2022 that you never thought it would show up," Copeland says in the video of his prophecy. "The Lord says, 'My mercy shows up in places where people don't even think it's there in the first place.' I am a merciful God.

"There are those that became so stressed in 2019, 2020 and 2021 and so pressured by this biological weapon that was created in the earth," he continues. "This synthetic virus that was created to do what it has done, to upset the world. There were those who were under such pressure and they just said, 'I can't go any further,' so they stepped out of their bodies and they are in My presence, sayeth the Lord. There are those that will continue in 2022, but in 2022, there will be large swings from one way to the other ... there will be disasters for some, and great grace for others, and it will be like the swinging of a pendulum.
