Not One Missile

 

Not one missile has been fired, not one atomic bomb detonated, but

                The Corona Virus 

has brought the world to a standstill: commercial retailers, builders, airlines, shipping companies, tourism

All of those activities are being shown to be needless pursuits of the so-called

                    DEVELOPED ECONOMIES

who considered themselves self-sufficient and above any influence that any God can exert.

Thousands of citizens have died. Thousands more have been infected and incapacitated to some extent, mostly temporary, but no-one knows the long term consequences of having contracted the disease. 

Medical supplies, even for those who are caring for the affected, are running short.

"Social distancing" and "social isolation" (staying at home in one's residence) are causing greater levels of domestic violence as families find it difficult to tolerate each other.

The depleted state of social skills (that is, the consideration required to enable families to live together in close quarters) is being exposed

Has it been "destroyed" by technology providing a way to avoid personal consideration and tolerance of others, even of one's own family?

Bible prophecy describes the situation when there will not be any such virus:

 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  (Rev 21:3)  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.  (Revelation 21:5)  And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

As for the present, consider what the wise man Solomon said:  I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem. And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven: this sore travail hath God given to the sons of man to be exercised therewith. I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
