Is the world coming to an end? Why the coronavirus is simply the top of the iceberg – 10 deadly plagues claim
If weird Christian prophecies regarding the coronavirus and locust swarms are to be accepted, THE END OF THE WORLD is near. Here are some of the reasons why some Christian evangelists feel we are nearing the end of the world.
Since its emergence in China in 2019, Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has infected about 190.6 million individuals worldwide, prompting the World Health Organization to declare it a global pandemic (WHO). In recent months, a slew of conspiracy theorists and fringe Christian groups have flooded social media with dire predictions of the world’s fiery destruction.
“Don’t know how terrible the Coronavirus is going to be, in truth,” William R. Giersdof wrote on Twitter, “but there was some chapter in the Bible’s Book of Revelation where it talks about a substantial portion of humanity being wiped off by sickness and pestilence.”
“Doesn’t the Book of Revelation mention The Lamb smiting the Anti-Pope with #coronavirus?” someone other wondered.
“‘Beginning of Sorrows’ – Matthew 24:3-8,” a third Twitter user wrote.
“Wildfires in Australia… Coronavirus… Earthquakes in unusual places… Increased rage/murders all around the world… Hunger levels are increasing…
“And there are those who mock the Book of Revelation… #JesusIsComing.”
But why are people posting these odd end-of-the-world predictions?
The coronavirus is one of ten plagues currently afflicting the world, according to Christian evangelist Michael Snyder.
Armies of locusts, weird weather patterns, unprecedented flooding, massive earthquakes, unexpected volcanic eruptions, the coronavirus, African Swine Fever, H1N1 Swine Flu, H5N1 Bird Flu, and H5N8 Bird Flu are among the plagues.
The coronavirus should not be seen as a foretold end-of-the-world plague.

“All of a sudden, extremely bizarre things are starting to happen all across the world,” he wrote in an article for Technical Politics.
“Giant locust swarms are destroying entire regions, meteorologists are baffled by extraordinarily strange storms, earthquake and volcanic activity are both on the rise, and five incredibly terrible diseases are sweeping the planet.
“It’s been one thing after another so far in 2020, and many are wondering about what could happen if circumstances continue to escalate.”
However, there is no proof that any of these occurrences are apocalyptic or prophetic.
The Book of Revelation in the Bible depicts a series of events that will reportedly take place in the final days leading up to the Second Coming. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
