Where are all the Charlatans Gone


Matthew 7: 15 - 20 / Ezekiel 13:9 / Jeremiah 23:16

Beware of False Prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.    


These wolves were Live on National and International Television, hosting Channels of their own, visible largely on Internet and Religious Events, conducting Prayers, curing Society of all ills with a touch of their hands, a wave in the air, or a push to the floor.

Travelling Globally with large troupes, creating high decibel sounds, adding to their ever widening client base to fund their activities and lifestyles in the name of religion. 
These are the people who went first into hiding. 

Where are they who claimed to be Anointed and Spoke in Tongues  Who walked around their places of worship, holding high their Holy Books, and pretending they were the Holy ones. These are the people who went first into hiding.

The Wrath .. .. ... .. and the Cure


Various outbreaks of Pandemic diseases, have prompted many to ask why God allows 
or even causes Pandemics and whether such illnesses are a sign of the end times. But then we say daily "World without an End." So that's ruled out.  

The Bible describes numerous occasions in the Old Testament, when God brought Plagues and Diseases on his people and on his enemies. (Exodus 9:14, 16) (Exodus 12:13, 15:26)  
 

40 days, 40 nights in the Ark, Noah's family was confined in a Boat. No Windows, No devices to Communicate.They only heard the rain. They spent their time Praying, loving each other, and caring for the animals. God the Father took care of them, as Noah was a man of Faith and obeyed his Word.

God also warned his people of the consequences of disobedience (Leviticus 26: 21,25) After giving the Mosaic Law, God commanded his people to obey it or suffer many evils. There are many examples of God's wrath in getting his people home. In 2 Chronicles 7:13-14, God said to Solomon, When I shut up the Heavens, so that there is No rain, or command locusts to devour the land, or send a plague. Only when they turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from the Heavens and forgive their sin and heal their land.

In the New Testament, Jesus healed every disease and sickness, as well as plagues in the areas he visited. There is No way to determine whether the Pandemic has a spiritual cause, but we can be certain that as the Lord said, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life." His Parables teach us the way to live in various situations. We only need to understand the 52 Parables he narrated.


Scientifically it will be seen that those who survive the Pandemic have a higher immunity, maybe that's the answer. Eat Healthy and raise your immunity.
Remember even though there is an ocean of viruses out there, and life seems like a stormy ride, our God is watching over us! Be faithful to him and wait patiently. The rain will stop one day. A rainbow will shine and all will be well again.

As to how to stop the disease, currently we are relying on the practice of isolation. At the last pandemic, Sailors were held on Ship for 30 days in the Venetian port city of Ragusa, to keep them in isolation, until proved they were not sick. This became known in Venetian Law as a Trentino. With time they increased the forced isolation to 40 days or a Quarantino. This had a better effect and the origin of the word. 
The world now stares at being Quarantined.
