Matthew 24:1-35 (21) – For there will be greater anguish than at any time since the world began. And it will never be so great again. (NLT)

The COVID-19 pandemic has taught the world several lessons than first imagined. Never was there in recent times a situation that confined nations into fear and confusion. In 2020—the lockdown year, top cities were deserted by human beings while the animals took over the streets (Monkeys in Thailand). Many people also died and still perishing, flights were grounded, and the stores ran out of daily stocks. Millions of jobs collapsed, and trillions of dollars have been spent to find a cure to the virus and soften the economic impact. No doubt the world is in perilous times as detailed in our Bible reading (2 Timothy 3:1-5).

A similar situation to the global pandemic and a greater degree of shocking occurrences would happen after the second coming of Christ. There shall be turmoil all over the lands so that the antichrist will reign in a one-world order wherein people shall receive the mark of the beast if they are to buy or sell, among other things (Revelation 13; 20). It is better thought of than experienced because it would be unbearable! Therefore, we must make it to heaven. This can only be possible when we live a sinless life. Whatever is capable of hindering our eternal reign with God must be put aside (James 4:7).

Beloved, are you still basking in sin and postponing your day of salvation? Why not come to Jesus now—tomorrow may be too late! No matter how terrible your past is, Jesus is calling you to repentance today. Repent, accept Him, confess and be saved (2 Corinthians 5:17).


Hymn: Softly and Tenderly, Jesus Is Calling — Will. L Thompson (1880)

1. Father, please grant me victory over sin and help me live in righteousness.

2. Father, have mercy and heal my land, family and the church.


1. My head; reject all forms of manipulation.

2. Unholy hands, judge and court, placing contrary verdicts on my case, scatter!

3. Any battles attached to my life, glory, marriage and career, break!

4. Breakthrough today, affliction tomorrow, mighty now but disgraced later. You are not my portion; cease!
