Folks, I just had to do a snippet post on what, for some, appears to remind them that what they think is the coming “end times” prophesied in various books of The Bible are in fact coming. The Bible does prophecy plagues in the “end times” and seemingly, for some, the constant mainstream media “news” about this Corona Virus “means” we are in these prophesied times. They can’t help it. Corona Virus is almost all that is on TV news these days. I have also noticed various YouTube preacher channels claiming we are heading into these “end times.” I will let the reader do this research themselves.
And then there are reports of hoarding toilet paper or fighting in stores over toilet paper. Some states are quarantining drivers from other states that have large numbers of Corona Virus victims just because–Texas, where I live, is one of those. In fact, far west Texas, which has no Corona Virus cases at all (except El Paso County), is doing the same “shelter in place” scenario that large cities are doing! Just because. The governor of Texas wants it, and the US government also wants it. And folks wonder why we might be living through an end time scenario.
And then you have “conspiracy theorists” (as called by those who would rather just “go along to get along” and to heck with freedom and the right of assembly enshrined in the Bill of Rights and Constitution) claiming what may be true or what may be overblown, that the government is setting up some authoritarian state what with all the panic, little by little. Some say it started with 9-11. Yet, in my opinion, little by little, it’s been going on for longer than that. When I began this trilogy in the 1990s we had “right wing patriot militia” types involved with activities bringing about what were called “standoffs”–Waco, Ruby Ridge and others. So these theories didn’t just start with 9-11. But because of these activities happening, I had to bring them up in my trilogy books, The Prophesied Band most of all. Which leads to the three snippets I will now post.
