    Joel, what a pleasant wonderful wisdom packed episode! Although I’m contemplating taking out my 401K. I do have your Catastrophe book and it, as well as your Underground episodes led me to a love for Muslims and refugees.
    I cling to the pruning parable because my life is packed with pruning and I need that growth and hope. Thank you for this, for all your hard work, and I pray for you and your family continually.

    Can we know for sure at this point if this pandemic is going to be worse than most people are expecting? Some say that it is still too soon to tell.

    We can only examine current trends, which do not look good at all.

    Joel: As was recently communicated to you I believe the book The Mystery of Catastrophe is spot on for this day. I would encourage everyone to get a copy, multiple copies to pass on those near and dear to you.
    I am one of those that contacted you asking could this be a work of satan. I agree, it is both God and satan at work. Satan is the ruler of this fallen world but he is limited to that which is allowed by God. We, the modern day church of America deserve and need to be chastised. Great episode…as always.
    Have a blessed day with your Lord Jesus.

    Exact words I needed to hear – other than events being cancelled. Your answer to questions are always filled with wisdom. Grown and learned so much from your talks, books, videos. Blessing to you young man. Praying for you and your family. You help us to grow so that when the birth pains increase we are not shaken and can stand together against the Anti-Christ and gates of HELL. Curious – what are your thoughts on he ID-2020 – GATES supported – evil?

    Appreciate your perspective. Just before the severity of this was becoming apparent in this country Isaiah 26 seemed to jump out of the Scriptures to me. There is great comfort and instruction in verse 3 which tells us we can have perfect peace if our minds are fixed on our Lord. But also verse 9 “At night my soul longs for Thee. Indeed my spirit within me seeks Thee diligently.” In that dark time we fixate, seek/pursue, long for Jesus. When things are real “normal” , when ongoing life is assumed, we are not so diligent in seeking the giver and preserver of life. The passage goes on to say, and I believe this is “mercy”. “For when the earth experiences Thy judgments the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness. Though the wicked is shown favor, he does not learn righteousness….And does not perceive the majesty of the Lord.” I guess one could argue about the judgment aspect here, but it holds true when there is calamity of some sort in the earth people take on a more eternal perspective. It is a mercy turning people to Himself.
    On the contrary, we see before the final bowls of wrath are poured out we are told that men would no longer repent. The present “judgments” are here to bring repentance. When that fails final wrath is poured out because He is not willing that any should perish but all should come to repentance. Each world shaking is mercy until He is finally and ultimately rejected and hearts are hardened, like Pharoah..
    I appreciate you heart to minister Biblical perspective to the body of Christ! Blessings to you!
