The coronavirus pandemic that has swept the globe the past few months has sent people into a state of pandemonium.
End times expert Michael Snyder says he isn't sure whether or not it is the second pandemic John Paul Jackson prophesied years ago or another one that is coming, but Snyder says God's children need not fear.
"Jackson said, 'The Lord told me there would be a pandemic that came, and the first one would prove to be little but fear,'" Snyder told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. "'But the second one that comes will be serious.'
"Now, we have seen there was a scare about Ebola a few years ago, and there have been other things like swine flu. We don't know if those were the first and that there was another one coming later. We do know that a major pandemic is coming at some point, and that it's going to be extremely serious.
"What we do know is that since the last time we talked, this virus has become a whole lot more serious. The last time we talked, it was primarily focused on China. Now, Europe has become the epicenter of this outbreak, specifically Italy. But it went from basically zero cases to now more than 15,000. More than 1,000 in Italy have already died. The health care system there is overwhelmed. I mean, doctors are literally having to choose who lives and who dies. So, it's a concern, and we're seeing the world respond with great fear and great concern. We're seeing shutdowns all over the world.
"But there is no reason to fear. The Lord has a plan for you. He has his hand on your life. Ultimately, God is in control. ... Hardly anyone is out there talking about the fact that when we look at the Bible, Jesus warned us what life would be like as we approached His return and the last days. Whenever there's an earthquake or a conflict somewhere, people will say that Jesus is coming back. But very few people point out that in Luke 21:11, Jesus warned there would be pestilences that would be another one of the signs. He told us it was going to happen. But He is in control. He has a plan."
