    But those who die in the LORD will live; their bodies will rise again! Those who sleep in the earth will rise up and sing for joy! For your life-giving light will fall like dew on your people in the place of the dead! Go home, my people, and lock your doors! Hide yourselves for a little while until the LORD’s anger has passed. Look! The LORD is coming from heaven to punish the people of the earth for their sins. The earth will no longer hide those who have been killed. They will be brought out for all to see.

    Isaiah 26:19-21 NLT

    This prophecy seems rather vague to me. How do you know these Bible Verses are referring specifically to C.O.V.I.D.-19 in particular?

    Didn't they say that about the black death, Spanish flu, and everything else that kills lots of people?

    It’s unlikely that the “Spanish Flu” originated in Spain, scientists are still unsure of its source. France, China and Britain have all been suggested as the potential birthplace of the virus, as has the United States, where the first known case was reported at a military base in Kansas on March 11, 1918

    i used the term "Spanish" because that's the general term for the world pandemic following WW1. It seems likely to be of North American origin but no firm data can pin it down.

    I suppose as history seems to repeat itself, one can say any of the events of the past are predictions of the future.

    Didn't people shelter in place "lockdown" as well during other pandemics?

    Define a pandemic, define an epidemy. They are not the same. COVID19 - very first pandemic in the history of the Universe.

    So, why weren't we told about this in December 2019?
    No good keeping it secret, tell us about these great predictions.

    On the other hand .. isn't hindsight wonderful?

    The reason it was called “Spanish flu,” from what I understand, is that Spain was the only neutral European country in WWI. The countries involved in the War were busy spreading propaganda, accusing their enemies of causing it.
    The only reliable information regarding the disease, was coming out of Spain

    Or so I read. Makes sense.

    This isn't it. Covid is only about up there around as deadly (or perhaps more had we not worn masks so much) as the 1918-1919 flu, and therefore less deadly than many other plagues.

    But it is as always a good day to read more of the text to learn more of what it says. :) That's a life long process for all of us.

    Umm... no.... Here's a cool 3D visualization of the history of pandemics. It's pretty abundantly clear Covid-19 is not the first in history. See here:

    I agree with your OP.

    I was using these verses on another forum in January/February 2020.

    I'm positive of it.

    But it's spooky because it's happening now.

    If it was ten years from now then it would be more palatable for public discussion.

    And just because I'm sure of it, doesn't mean everybody else has to be sure of it too.

    Did not the Lord also say to be silent before the Day of the Lord?

    "Be silent before the Lord GOD! For the day of the LORD is near; the LORD has prepared a sacrifice and consecrated his guests. - Zephaniah 1:7

    Why is it if the Lord is telling you this pandemic is him punishing human beings for whatever bad thing they're doing right now particularly, and He is telling you in these verses to go inside and lock the doors... why is it that the so-called 'born-again' Christians defy wearing masks, or not gather together in church services during his plague? Are they being disobedient the Lord in these verses? Have you worn your mask and obeyed distancing guidelines, such as in Isaiah?

    Would the Jews have survived God's targeted killings of all the firstborn children in Egypt, if they'd have said putting blood on their doorposts and staying indoors was an infringement upon their personal liberties, and they'll be out in the streets unprotected, no problem? What do you make of this? Are these Christians disobedient to God?

    My answer would be that it's occurring at the exact appointed time where it would be expected to occur.

    On another thread in December 2019, I said something had to begin, something had to become evident "in the full view of men", specifically in January 2020.

    It seemed like a mod called me out on it around new years day. Like OK, here we are Dave. It's January 2020 and nothing's happening. I said the month's not over yet.

    It's not a personal prophecy.

    I'm counting the heptads, the sevens, like in Daniel 9.

    That's the only place where the time is specifically defined, until Messiah the Prince.

    I might be wrong, but I'm sure that I'm not.

    We are in the zone, the prophetic time period, for these things to culminate.

    Like Jesus said in Mark, "the time is fulfilled.

    Those same 7 and 62 week periods have been completed again.

    Thanks to @ChristineM I don't have to do the digging -- but this is so clearly wrong!

    Why not try to do even the smallest bit of research before you make such big, bold -- and entirely false -- claims?
