Please allow me some space in your paper to elaborate on the above title or heading according to my opinion.
Please read Matthew 24: 7 — 8 when you have time: v.7 has the word, ‘………pestilences ……..’, and v.8 has the words, ‘………beginning of sorrows………’.
Pestilences means: deadly epidemic diseases such as the Coronavirus or Covid-19.
Sorrows means: sadness or grief.
May we elaborate on these further if we can:
Since the lockdown started way back in March or April of this year, 2020, the following were restricted:
1. a. International Airlines (planes) cannot come into the country, or go out.
b. Tourist ships cannot come in. (Only international cargo ships can operate).
c. Visitors, tourists, business people, government officials, educational personnel, students, seasonal workers, other groups and ordinary people cannot travel in or travel out.
d. Plus some more.
2. a. Tourist resorts, hotels, motels, guest houses, bungalows, and other tourist facilities are affected badly or even some are closed.
b. Many jobs are reduced or even lost. (in Vanuatu about 6,000 – if correct?).
c. Man-power & resources cannot function fluently as before, and are affected.
d. The Public Sector is affected severely such as: Education (schools), Health, Transport, Civil Aviation, Tourism & Hospitality, Youth and Sports, Customs, Rates & Taxes, Markets, and some more.
3. a. No revenue/ income coming into the country.
b. Not much income into the family house-hold.
c. Students/ Pupils/ Kids drop off from school because of school fees unpaid.
d. Family life is disrupted or not stable.
e. Marital Relationship is disrupted.
f. Divorce occurs.
h. Poverty occurs (without enough food or money- for some).
j. Other crimes committed.
k. Down-fall of the national economy.
l. Plus some more others.
(All these are more general, relating globally also).
m. Many people will be sad or sorrowful, just as the above bible text states in verse 8:
“…beginning of sorrows”. (my opinion).
A French Astrologer and Physician, Nostradamus wrote in the Year 1551 this! :
‘There will be a twin year (2020) from which will arise a queen (corona) who will come from the East (China) and who will spread a plague (virus) in the darkness of night, on a country with 7 hills (Italy) and will transform the twilight of men into dust (death), to destroy and ruin the world.
It will be the end of the world economy as you know it’.
May God keep that which is His will, and remove that which is not.
