Did God Cause the Coronavirus?

Did God cause the coronavirus? Unless you live in a cave you’re probably aware of the current situation with the corona virus or Covid-19 for short which is short for corona virus 2019 you know states are locking down and instructing us to shelter in place to prevent the spread of the virus and I’m very happy to comply because the Bible actually teaches in Romans chapter 13 verses wanted to it says this let every soul be subject to the governing authorities for there is no authority except from God and the authorities that exist are appointed by God therefore whoever resists the authority of God resists the ordinance of God and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves in verse 6 of this chapter Romans 13 it even says that the authorities are ministers of God but now that doesn’t really answer the question did God send the coronavirus in the last few weeks I’ve had a lot of people ask me Aaron did God do this did God send this punishment maybe for behavior that the world has had in general or America or or China or any of these different countries like Italy I’ve had some people tell me yes and others tell me no I’ve even heard some religious teachers say things like the coronavirus points to the end times in the book of Revelation I’ve had people tell me the coronavirus is the mark of the beast I’ve even heard some say that it’s a plague of the Antichrist from the book of Revelation not to mention that Antichrist is mentioned 0 times in the book of Revelation if you look it up in your Bible you’ll only see it about four or five times in 1st and 2nd John and it says there were many antichrists in the first century so a lot of these statements I’m hearing are not correct revelation is a book written in signs and symbols to the first century church addressing their comming persecution by Rome or Jerusalem depending on which position you take hint I believe it’s Rome but either way the book has explicit time statements in Revelation chapter 1 in 22 speaking of the contents of the book or at least a majority and it says they were to shortly come to pass you can look that up yourself read Revelation chapter 1 the first four or five verses and Revelation chapter 22 and you’ll see at the beginning and at the end of the book it says the contents were to shortly come to pass but what’s the truth where did the coronavirus come from was it sent by God I have heard some logical arguments from two different sides so let’s look at both of those arguments one side would say yes God sent this as a punishment and they would point to Bible passages that speak of God bringing plagues on people they would say Aaron in the Bible in Genesis chapter 12 or in Exodus 9 numbers Deuteronomy Kings Chronicles I could go on they say see God causes plagues as punishment so he caused this the other side would say God did not send the coronavirus it’s just a coincidence they would use passages like Luke 13 where Jesus talks about a tower falling on eighteen men and it kills them and it seems the prevailing thought was this happen to them because they were worse sinners Jesus says in essence that’s not true it was a coincidence so which position is right did God cause the coronavirus like he did some times in the Old Testament with different plagues or was it just a coincidence like the Luke 13:3 passage you’re probably saying okay Aaron give me this solid answer the fact is I don’t know you know why I don’t know because God hasn’t told us you see in those Old Testament examples and in the New Testament examples we know whether God sent it directly or whether it was a coincidence because God directly told us I can open up my Bible and look at that so was the coronavirus a punishment or was it a coincidence well we don’t know and since God is not speaking to anybody directly today like he did during Bible times he’s not giving anyone divine revelation about the coronavirus and its origins we really can’t know which position is correct and we need to be really careful not to assert that we know more than we actually know in Deuteronomy 29:29 there’s a passage that basically says there are secret things that belong to God and thus sometimes we have to be okay with saying I don’t know I don’t know the answer there is one thing that I do know though because the Bible tells me dizzy in general things like coronaviruses death sorrow suffering in this world they were not in God’s original creation God created Earth perfect in the beginning and when even an Adam sinned the Bible says death and disease entered I do know that sin is the actual cause of the coronavirus because that’s what the Bible actually tells me and I can read it and know that that’s the truth you know I don’t know whether I will get covin 19 or not I hope I don’t I don’t know whether I might even die from it one day if it’s a recurring sort of virus or if I will have some of those close to me died from it but I can promise you this I’m much more scared of dying without Christ than I am of dying from Cova 19 you know each one of us is going to die at some point on this earth and less the Lord returns first so my question for you is are you ready to meet the Lord are you ready to meet God whether it’s from a natural cause maybe in five years or 50 years or maybe it’s from kovin 19 and five weeks if you aren’t ready yet here’s what you need to do to be ready according to the Bible to have Christ you need to first have faith Hebrews 11:6 says without faith it’s impossible to please God and according to the Bible faith in Romans 10:17 comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God which is the Bible that’s the book that we all have faith and belief are actually variations of the same Greek word so having faith believing john 3:16 says this for God so loved the world he gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him in Christ should not perish but have everlasting life but you need to do some more things the Bible also says that you need to repent repent and be baptized acts 2:38 you need to confess Romans 10:9 attend confessed that Jesus is the Son of God and be baptized for the remission of your sins to wash those sins away acts 22:16 and then revelation 2:10 says be thou faithful unto death and you’ll receive a crown of life so whether you die from cancer from a car wreck or from kovat 19 the question is are you ready if you aren’t ready and you want to get ready just send us a message and we would love to talk to you about the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ thanks for watching you
