The Wrath of God

On Sunday, Dr. Anthony Fauci finally admitted publicly what we first reported on March 20, 2020 -- that millions of Americans will become infected with the coronavirus and at least 100,000 to 200,000 of those infected will die from the disease. Dr. Fauci heads the nation’s top agency for fighting infectious diseases. He is also a member of the White House's COVID-19 response team.
Dr. Fauci's estimated minimum number of COVID-19 deaths was affirmed again Monday. This death count assumes that Americans implement social distancing to perfection, which we know will not occur.
The ER and ICU doctors on the frontline estimate about 2 to 3 million COVID-19 cases in the United States and a death count ranging from 4 to 6% of this number. What is worse, a second wave of the virus is predicted to hit the U.S. again in the Fall.
As I discussed in "The Coronavirus: Why is this happening to Us," I believe the coronavirus was unleashed on the world by God. In my view, it is the wrath of God for the way mankind has strayed from his teachings.
In a Biblical context, the coronavirus ranks up there with the story of Noah and the flooding of the earth, as told in Genesis 7: 1-14. For America, which is experiencing the brunt of the virus, COVID-19 is eerily similar to the plague God unleashed on the Pharaoh of Egypt after he refused Moses’ request to free the children of Israel from bondage.
In the truest sense, the world's doctors and scientists are battling the wrath of God as they search for a vaccine or cure. Man's mastery of science is remarkable but has never been a match for God's will or wrath.
In America and around the world, God has seen where mankind worships presidents and prime minister of nations, movie stars, singers and dancers, social media influencers, super-star athletes and other sports figures, Wall Street billionaires, Ayatollahs in Iran, Popes at the Vatican, prosperity-based ministries in America, Evangelical Christian leaders, money and currency, and the military might of nations. We even have a wildly popular TV show called "American Idol," which brands amateur singers as "Idols." Idolatry is expressly condemned in the Bible.
After God bestowed tremendous blessings upon America for more than 200 years, she embarked upon a course of action of inflicting unimaginable pain and suffering on infants and young children who were separated from their migrant parents at our Southern borders. For the most part, the church in America did not speak out against this inhumane practice. I knew then and there that God would inflict unimaginable pain and suffering upon America for these misdeeds. When we hurt the "least of these," we offend God.
At the end of the day, America has failed God. A majority of this nation's people is Christian. A lot of Christians talk about their faith, but few of them practice God's religious teaching in their daily lives.
By today's standards, Jesus Christ would be considered a deranged bum with a ragtag band of social misfits following him around the nation. Today's non-denominational mega-churches glorify their preachers, not Jesus Christ.
Make no mistake about it, God is not listening to church prayers seeking an end to the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, our political and religious leaders are impotent in the face of God's wrath.
God has taken away everything we worship. For those who worship athletes, God shut down the stadiums and sports arenas. For those who worship musicians, God shut down civic centers and concert halls. For those who worship actors and actresses, God shut down playhouses and movie theaters around the world. For those who worship money, God shut down our national economy. For those who worship mega-church TV preachers, jet-setting religious hustlers, Ayatollahs, and the Pope, God shut down the churches and mosques.
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways: then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." II Chronicles 7:14. Until the people around the world humble themselves and turn from their wicked ways, God will not hear our prayers.
Science cannot defeat God. When we recommit our lives to God and his teachings, God will lift the COVID-19 plague upon the lands. Those who challenge God's will or ignore it shall perish. Those who embrace his name will live.
