Could China be experiencing God’s Judgment? First the coronavirus and now the Bird flu? Whether it’s man-made or God sent, God is allowing it to happen. But why? And where can we find this in scripture? Let’s examine the facts.

Chinese Dragon Worship

It’s no secret that the Chinese are known to celebrate the Dragon with their “Year of the Dragon” every fifth new year. As we know the Bible reveals the dragon as “Satan, that old serpent” in Revelation 12. That’s one strike.

Replacing The Ten Commandments

Reports claim the government has demanded the Ten Commandments be replaced with quotes by President Xi Jinping, and that portraits of the president, former leader Mao Zedong and other communist propaganda be used as well as part of “sinicization” to ensure citizens are loyal to the officially atheistic party or face the wrath of the regime.

Arresting Pastors & Closing Churches

Pastor Wang Yi, of Early Rain Church, has been jailed along with his wife. He was sentenced to nine years for “ illegal business activities” or operating a Church. 

Over the past year, local governments have shut hundreds of unofficial congregations or “house churches” including Early Rain. A statement signed  operate outside the government-approved church by 500 house church leaders in November says authorities have removed crosses from buildings, forced churches to hang the Chinese flag and sing patriotic songs, and barred minors from attending.

Banning The Bible

China has also banned any unauthorized downloads of the Bible saying it may “adversely affect society”.  

God’s Judgment

When God’s people are persecuted, God Yeshua (Jesus) takes it personal and has been known to confront the persecutor as with Saul who later became the Apostle Paul after being confronted by God on the road to Damascus to persecute Christians. Take a look:

Saul, still breathing threats and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked for letters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, that if he found any who were of the Way, whether m’Buten or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.

As he traveled, he got close to Damascus, and suddenly a light from the sky shone around him. He fell on the earth, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”

He said, “Who are you, Lord?” The Lord said, “I am Yeshua, whom you are persecuting. But rise up and enter into the city, then you will be told what you must do.”

The men who traveled with him stood speechless, hearing the sound, but seeing no one. Saul arose from the ground, and when his eyes were opened, he saw no one. They led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. He was without sight for three days, and neither ate nor drank. ‘

Acts 9:1-9 CJB

God’s Judgment: Pestilence (Disease) 

When you do a background check on God, you’ll discover He never changes His methods. Pestilence is one of His ways of executing Judgment:

‘For the Lord GOD says: “How much more when I send my four severe judgments on Jerusalem—the sword, the famine, the evil animals, and the pestilence—to cut off from it man and animal!

Ezekiel 14:21 CJB

The dictionary describes:

pestilence : as a contagious or infectious epidemic disease that is virulent and devastating.

The media does not use the word “pestilence” because it’s a biblical phrase. As with the word “whirlwind” when describing tornados.

In the book of Job, God allowed Satan to afflict his servant with boils on the skin as a time of “testing” of his faith and loyalty to God. In the end, God healed Job.

In The Book of Revelation the first bowl of judgment that will be poured out from God will be a global viral outbreak that will be afflict only those who accepted the Mark of the Beast:

1I heard a loud voice from the sanctuary say to the seven angels, “Go, and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of God’s fury!”

So the first one went and poured his bowl onto the earth, and disgusting and painful sores appeared on all the people who had the mark of the beast and worshipped its image

Revelation 16:2 CJB

Conclusion:

Do you think it was a coincidence that China had planned to impose harsh new rules for religious groups on December 30, and the first case of the coronavirus was announced the very next day?

So in the case with the coronavirus as well as the bird flu both could very well be from the throne of God to execute judgment or a strong warning to the inhabitants in China and around the world.
