Combining End Times biblical prophecy and current events is a precarious endeavor. But Dr. Mark Hitchcock has been reading the biblical tea leaves for decades now and written thirty books on the subject. He will tell you that coming up with precise dates and times of the Last Days and Jesus's return, is not only irresponsible, it is not even accurate. Jesus Himself said no one "but the Father knows." Still, one of the looming questions for many people around the world is whether or not the Coronavirus pandemic is a sign the end is near. On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, Hitchcock, a pastor and professor at Dallas Theological Seminary, explains how the Covid-19 pandemic fits into the Bible's prophecies, or whether it does at all. He'll explain the difference between The Rapture, The Tribulation, and what are the key verses in the Bible that prophecy what God has in store for His creation. All of it is explored as well in his latest book, "Corona Crisis: Plagues, Pandemics, and the Coming Apocalypse." It is getting top billing over his other timely book about the Iranian nuclear threat, "Showdown with Iran: Nuclear Iran and the Future of Israel, the Middle East, and the United States in Bible Prophecy." Both Covid-19 and Iran's nuclear ambitions present perilous warnings for us and our mindsets and beliefs about God.
