John Whitcomb: April 27, 2020

Is there a reference to the coronavirus in Biblical prophecy? Some have claimed that it is found in Matthew 24:7, where the Lord Jesus predicted that “pestilences” would precede His final, second coming. But does our current situation fall within the time frame that Jesus was warning about? Beyond that, what if the lessons we can draw from Bible prophecy—relating to the coronavirus—are actually much more profound than that which we can base on that one simple word, “pestilences”? Guest teacher Dr. Andy Woods answers those question as he brings us Part Two of his timely series called “Crisis 2020: The Coronavirus” this time on “Encounter God’s Truth.” With help from host Wayne Shepherd, he will examine the coronavirus crisis in light of the prophetic Scriptures—also showing how those passages shed light on the events before us now. Dr. Woods will also answer a question, explaining how the truths that we are learning should change our lives. Thank you for listening to this production of Whitcomb Ministries. We trust that you will be encouraged, and then share this broadcast with a friend.
