    Seriously, your English has never been good, but it has deteriorated even more since your first posts.

    Well, this will certainly be a good warm-up for the real thing.

    I have an excellent Puritan book called God's Terrible Voice in the City by Thomas Vincent (1684-1678), published by Soli Deo Gloria, which is about the Great Plague of London of 1665 and the Great Fire which came the year after. I was moved to read it again this week. In the plague, more than 79,000 people died in a city that was obviously much smaller than it is today. 7,155 died in a single week. Yet it did not presage the end of the world

    It's all political lies and deceit, intent on harming/smearing Trump anyway possible.

    I think when the Black plague wiped out a third of Europe, survivors thought Jesus was right now coming back, as end of the world was at hand!

    Correct, as either he caused it to happen in China, or else if we develop a cure now, he had nothing to do with that!

    True, but the nation that we call Israel today is not the real fulfillment of end times yet, as they have not yet returned to God, as in Ezekiel !

    Coronavirus is like a bad case of the flu. And is not even close as bad as was Spanish Flu which was terrible.
    People are going to get sick and most will recover. Looking at the graph, 85,000 have or had it and 40,000 recovered, under 3,000 dead. In the USA, tens of thousands can die of flu in one year.

    I cant help but wonder, if they were throwing up lots of charts about the flu, and talking up the infections and deaths, if people would become as frightened of the flu as this covid-19, SARS and MERS were also much worse.
    Most people who have it can stay at home. Many people just get a mild case. Also seems to be a dearth of testing kits.
    Saw they can diagnose this with a chest CAT scan.

    I can't help but think that the Fake media and Dems are playing politics on this issue, as they are willing to have the markets and economy crash if trumps gets pulled down also!

    SO?- repeat - TODAY there is a nation under Jewish rule NAMED ISRAEL - as the fulfillment of scripture.

    Israel was born in one day (May 14, 1948) as the outcome of the horror of the holocaust.
    From Tears to Joy: The Rebirth of Israel | Messianic Bible

    Isaiah 66
    7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.
    8 Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.

    Revelation 12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
    2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth (the holocaust), and pained to be delivered.

    I am just stating that Israel will not fulfill its fullness until messiah returns back, as then they will worship Jesus as King Messiah!
