COVID-19: Conspiracy or Prophecy?
“Normal” just isn’t normal anymore. COVID-19 has caused so much to change at work, at home and everywhere else. Along with the changes, and the fear and anxiety that come with a global pandemic, we also have to deal with information overload. How does COVID-19 fit into Scripture? What about all the conspiracies? Are these the “signs of the times”? Nobody wants to be led astray by fables or lies, but how do we discern fact from fiction or truth from error? The ancient Scriptures hold the key to unlocking our understanding of the current crisis.

Consistent private disciplines with God are one of the most important steps we need to take.

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
