COVID-19, social unrest, natural disasters… A lot of people have been asking what these current events mean in light of Bible prophecy.
Does the Bible speak about these events – and if so, what does it say?
Furthermore, if the return of Jesus is imminent, what does it mean for us to be “ready” for His return?
Some people believe that to be ready means to stockpile food and guns – you know, so you can shoot your neighbors when they get hungry and try to take your food, right?! I’m quite sure that’s not what Jesus wants us to do, and it’s not what it means to be ready for his return.
So, what does it mean for us to be “ready” for Jesus’ return? If we are living in the last days, what should we be doing?
Mike and I sat down to discuss these questions in our latest video. Check it out:

I need to buy a gun and some food.
Lol, that’s such a bizarre position… I always wonder what these people are thinking and if they’ve ever read the Bible at all.
Here’s what Jesus said: ““You have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you.” (Matthew 5:38-42)
He also said: “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10:28)
And then there was that time when one of his disciples cut of the ear of the High Priest’s servant in order to protect Jesus from being arrested and mistreated by the authorities… And Jesus put the servant’s ear back on and then allowed them to arrest him and execute him. So, maybe that’s a better approach… And by maybe I mean: Obviously, and Definitely.
I do not condone guns at all. It was a joke. But I do not think Jesus is want us to cut out eyes either.
I knew it was a joke. I think you’re right: he wants us to cut out sin from our lives, and be radical in doing so.
lol. I think I tried to type this without my glasses. I need them for typing in the mornings. I was watching a TikToker talk about how bad porn is for people and how it made him view women. He cut it out. In this world today it is harder to cut out things. Everything is in our faces.
Nick, your article is very thought provoking.
