Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) has infected more than 218.2 million people and killed more than 4.52 million as of September 2. Experts fear that thousands more people will be infected by the virus in the weeks and months ahead. Although entire countries were placed under lockdown in an effort to prevent it from spreading, experts are concerned about the possibility of others becoming infected.
In these trying times, many are looking towards Christian scripture for comfort and answers.
Matthew Maas said on Twitter: “Corona or the coronavirus is in the Bible, written in Matthew 24 6-8. Jesus loves you!”
One person stated, “Many people know that time is very short.” As the Bible says, we live in dangerous times.
The Coronavirus virus is a taste of the future. Do not be afraid, but continue to trust Christ.
How does the Bible speak about COVID-19 and coronavirus?
Even though the coronavirus has not been mentioned in the Bible by name, many Christians claim that there are messages and passages online which can link it to the pandemic.
Matthew 24 is a commonly cited passage.
According to the scripture, “For nation against nation and kingdom against kingdom shall arise: there will be famines and pestilences and earthquakes in diverse places.”
All these are just the beginnings to your sorrows.
This passage can be attributed to Jesus Christ, who explained to his disciples what they should expect prior to his second coming.
Luke 21 provides a similar description of Jesus’ teachings.
This passage says:
“But they will lay hands upon you and persecute, taking you to the synagogues and into jails. They’ll bring you before rulers and kings to my name.”
2 Chronicles 7 warns about plague in another passage: “If you shut down heaven so that it rains, or if the locusts devour the land,, or if my people are subject to pestilence;”
“If my people which are called by me, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn away from the wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive them their sin and heal their land.”
