God Sends the Calamities In Order to Bring About Repentance & Restoration

The prophecies of the prophet Joel to the kingdom of Judah have many uncanny similarities to the current world wide pandemic.

The bottom line is God tells us that He is the one who sends the calamities and He sends them in order to get His people's attention and to let them know that what He really wants is for us to return to Him by confessing our sin and repenting.

This video makes all of this crystal clear...

Joel 1:2
Listen to this, you elders;
pay attention, all inhabitants of the land.
Has anything like this ever happened in your whole life
or in the lifetime of your ancestors?

Joel 2:25 
I will make up for the years
that the ‘arbeh-locust consumed your crops—
the yeleq-locust, the hasil-locust, and the gazam-locust—
my great army that I sent against you.  [Locust are small – Corona Virus are even smaller]

2 Chron 7:13-14
13 When I close up the sky so that it doesn’t rain, or command locusts to devour the land’s vegetation, or send a plague among my people, 14 if my people, who belong to me, humble themselves, pray, seek to please me, and repudiate their sinful practices, then I will respond from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.

Joel 2:12-13
12“Yet even now,” the Lord says,
return to me with all your heart [confession of our sin & true repentance] —
with fasting, weeping, and mourning.
13 Tear your hearts,
not just your garments.”
Return to the Lord your God [confession of our sin & true repentance],
for he is merciful and compassionate,
slow to anger and boundless in loyal love—often relenting from calamitous punishment

Don't Be Like This

2 Tim 3:5
1 But understand this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2 For people will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self-control, savage, opposed to what is good, 4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, loving pleasure rather than loving God. 5 They will maintain the outward appearance of religion but will have repudiated its power.

Cry out to the Lord in our own brokenness.

Joel 1:14
Announce a holy fast;
proclaim a sacred assembly.
Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land
to the temple of the Lord your God,
and cry out to the Lord.

God is good and keeps his promises.

Joel 2:21-26 [ Restoration ]
21Do not fear, my land.
Rejoice and be glad,
because the Lord has accomplished great things!
22 Do not fear, wild animals.
For the pastures of the wilderness are again green with grass.
Indeed, the trees bear their fruit;
the fig tree and the vine yield to their fullest.
23 Citizens of Zion, rejoice!
Be glad because of what the Lord your God has done!
For he has given to you the early rains as vindication.
He has sent to you the rains—
both the early and the late rains as formerly.
24 The threshing floors are full of grain;
the vats overflow with fresh wine and olive oil.
25 I will make up for the years
that the ‘arbeh-locust consumed your crops—
the yeleq-locust, the hasil-locust, and the gazam-locust—
my great army that I sent against you.
26 You will have plenty to eat,
and your hunger will be fully satisfied;
you will praise the name of the Lord your God,
who has acted wondrously in your behalf.
My people will never again be put to shame.

Our God Knows Everything

God Himself declares that He is the one who sends plagues (disease or locusts) and famines (by locusts or no rain) [Joel 2:25, 2 Chron 7:13-14] in order to get the attention of His people.  The Corona Virus situation is being turned into a fake plague by men.  Even the CDC numbers show that it is behaving just like a normal flu in regards to the USA death rate (see above).  This virus may be a little more deadly than many past flu viruses but predominately with the elderly who also have co-morbidities and epistemologically they should be quarantining and protecting the sick not the healthy – doing the opposite has never been done before.  The initial lock downs should have been lifted quickly in order to build herd immunity.

This could actually be considered the worst kind of judgment.  When God, through Gad the prophet, gave King David three choices of punishment for the sin of counting the Israelites: 7 years of famine, 3 months at the hands of his enemies or 3 days of plague, David said, "I am very upset! I prefer that we be attacked by the Lord, for his mercy is great; I do not want to be attacked by human hands!" (2 Samuel 24).  David understood the worst alternative was being hotly pursued by wicked men who would show no mercy whereas he knew his God was a gracious and merciful God.  We have fallen into a situation where wicked men and women are secretly plotting the overthrow and enslavement of our nation and other nations.  We need to seek God's face, confess our sins, repent and plead for mercy and deliverance from the schemes of wicked men and women.

For it is time for judgment to begin, starting with the house of God. And if it starts with us, what will be the fate of those who are disobedient to the gospel of God? (1 Peter 4:16-18)

Entries from Martin Armstrong's Blog at Armstrong Economics

I follow the writings of Martin A. Armstrong because his AI computer has called key events in history years before they happen.  He also has a worldwide network of like minded high level insider sources.  I believe he tries very hard to not interject his own personal biases into what he write about.  I have often wondered if Martin is a Christian because he periodically quotes from the bible but I have not found him proclaiming Jesus as his Lord and Saviour.  But perhaps this following is a clue...

Happy Easter

Please Forward the Letter to Trump to All Politicians Around the World ASAP

Fauci Knew since 2005 that the Malaria Drug [Chloroquine / Hydroxychloroquine] Can even Cure Coronaviruses & Conflicts of Interest Abound

Gates - the Forecast

[ Please take my word for this - Martin Armstrong is the real deal.  He has consulted for past Presidents and currently consults for many world leaders and large corporations.  Even the US Intelligence agencies follow his AI model which has been proven over and over again, for 30+ years, to accurately forecast key turning points before they occur. ]

Letter to Your Politicians

Here is the deal. Politicians may not read every letter, but they know how to count. Staff will report how many times they get a letter pro/con on an issue, and they will assume that every letter they get many will assume it represents 100 more or less. The least dignity is generally assigned to the public at large, but there is a ground-swell of discontent and insinuation which is rising on a global scale. I [Martin Armstrong] have been inundated from people around the world in various governments or with influence in governmental access. This is making a difference. Those in power are starting to witness the outrage and that will dominate the 2020 election in the United States.

The Fauci Lie – He Continues to Support Covertly Bill Gates & Should be Criminally Investigated – NOW!

What is Really the Game with the Bailouts?

May 18, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

"The scheme is to crash their [democrat run states] economies and then blame everything on the virus and then blame Trump for not bailing them out for the 2020 election. This is a very clever scheme being relayed in whispers from behind the curtain. They are using this virus as cover to bail out 70 years of fiscal mismanagement."
