(below)  In general, I believe the “hour of trial” is a brief period before the rapture, so it would seem that covid-19 fits the criteria of the verse, since it has spread throughout the world.  Revelation 3:10 [Church at Philadelphia – Church #6] (pre-tribs) “Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test  those who live on the earth.”   Notice that the “hour of trial” is mentioned in Church 6 of the Seven Churches, which I believe is the pre-trib church, but God’s message is to not worry because He will ‘keep you from it’.  Of course, that doesn’t mean a person shouldn’t take normal precautions like everyone else.  Personally, I still worry a little because I live with my 84-year-old mother, so if I caught the virus, it would be especially bad in multiple ways.  Plus, I’m not given the option to work at home, since I’m a delivery driver.  My job forces me to drive around one of the hardest hit counties in the state and visit various businesses.  Thus, I use every precaution I can, while praying for God’s protection, which is all a person can do.  Of course, I wear a mask, which keeps the worrying to a minimum.    The coronavirus is certainly a world-wide ‘trial’ that is creating all kinds of panic, so it certainly fits that part.  So, how is it supposed to “test” people?  In my opinion, I think covid-19 or ‘hour of trial’ is just a wakeup call, to get people’s attention, because the Trumpet and Bowl plagues, after the rapture, will be far worse.  From what I’ve seen on the news, I think people’s general attitudes are being tested.  I mean, some people exercise kindness and compassion, while others try to hoard everything for themselves, even lining up to buy guns to protect their stash.  Some greedy people are more worried about the stock market and personal wealth than how many people are sick and dying.  I think the ‘hour of trial’ is a relatively small test, before the rapture, to see who turns to God and who just relies on themselves and their possessions.    Note: Many of the ‘super-hoarders’ are post-tribs who believe everyone must endure all the hardships of Revelation (Trumpet and Bowl plagues), but that’s just not true.  Pre-tribulation is easily proven because the multitude from every nation (Christians) are in heaven in Revelation 7, between the 6th and 7th Seals, and the Trumpet and Bowl plagues literally can’t start until the 7th Seal (half-hour of silence) is complete, since trumpets can’t sound during a silence.  The 6th Seal (Rev 6) is definitely the rapture because it matches perfectly with the rapture in Matthew 24:29-31.  Seals 1-5 are in the past, so that leaves the 6th Seal as the ‘pre-tribulation rapture’.  Post-tribs deceive people by overlapping the Seals, Trumpets, and Bowls, in order to put the 6th Seal at the end.  They re-arrange God’s prophecy in Revelation to put the ‘rise of the antichrist’ and ‘mark of the beast’ (Rev 13) before the 6th Seal rapture, in Revelation 6, which is clearly wrong.  Manipulating and overlapping God’s prophecy in Revelation, which inevitably leaves some things out, is the basic definition of a false prophet.  There is a grave warning for such activity in Rev 22:19. What does the Bible say about Prepping?   It’s natural to have a few weeks’ worth of food in the house, so a person doesn’t have to go to the store so often, but so called “prepping” is what post-tribs do when they hoard massive quantities of food because they think the tribulation is coming.  I had a person ask me recently if prepping was mentioned in the Bible.  As a matter of fact, it is, but God is naturally against it because people shouldn’t put their faith in worldly possessions.  Luke 12:16-31 “[Jesus] told them this parable: "The ground of a certain rich man produced a good crop. 17 He thought to himself, 'What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.'  18 "Then he said, 'This is what I'll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I'll say to myself, "You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry." '  20 "But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?'  21 "This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God."   22 Then Jesus said to his disciples: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23 Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. 24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? 26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? 27 "Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! 29 And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30 For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.  New section added: 6-27-2020 Part 2: Coronavirus in the Bible (‘hour of trial’ confirmed)   I recently stumbled across this passage, when someone told me to read a nearby verse, which is often times how God shows me things.  In other words, I give God all the credit for this and everything I’ve been able to uncover and share.  To me, this is a prime example that proves the coronavirus is indeed part of the ‘hour of trial’, right before the rapture.    I will explain my view after you see for yourself.  Isaiah 26:19-21 19 But your dead will live; their bodies will rise.  You who dwell in the dust, wake up and shout for joy.  Your dew is like the dew of the morning; the earth will give birth to her dead. 20 Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by. 21 See, the LORD is coming out of his dwelling to punish the people of the earth for their sins.  The earth will disclose the blood shed upon her; she will conceal her slain no longer.   I think it is obvious that verse 19 refers to the rapture of the dead.  Then, the prophecy turns to address the living who are still waiting at that time.  After all, we know from Paul’s writing that the dead will be raised, first, and the living will follow to meet Jesus (and the others) in the air (or clouds). (1 Thess 4:15-18)   Then, verse 21 mentions the rapture again, when Jesus “comes out of His dwelling place to punish the people of the earth for their sins,”  which is a reference to those who are left behind to suffer through the ‘post-rapture tribulation’, which is the Trumpet and Bowl plagues in Revelation.    Therefore, verse 20 is describing some kind of “wrath,” which is before the rapture because it is before Jesus comes from His dwelling place, which last for “a little while” and people can avoid it by shutting themselves in their rooms.  Does that not sound just like the “stay at home” orders or suggestions from health officials, during the coronavirus?     I’m just saying that this proves that the coronavirus is at least part of the ‘hour of trial’, which also implies a kind of wrath, to “test” people on earth, but only for a short time, before the rapture, since the same verse mentions “enduring patiently.” (Rev 3:10)  In other words, Isaiah 26:20 perfectly links the coronavirus to the ‘hour of trial’.    Of course, there could be more to the ‘hour of trial’ such as the recent conflicts in race relations, which started in the United States and spread worldwide, but coronavirus is at least part of it because that involves a person shutting themselves in their rooms.    Perhaps more importantly, I think Isaiah 26:20 links the coronavirus to the imminent rapture, since it appears directly between two verses that obviously reference the rapture of the dead and Jesus’ coming.  We just have to “endure patiently” (Rev 3:10) and do as Isaiah 26:20 instructs, which is ‘stay at home’, when possible, or at least wear a mask when you must go out.  Section added: 6-27-2020 Related pages: Rapture soon The Abomination Related pages: Rapture soon The Abomination
