OPINION (ETH) – A new National Survey is indicating that nearly half of the country now believes that the deadly coronavirus pandemic sweeping the Nation and the Globe is a “wake-up call” from God, and one-third see this as the “last days” foretold by the Bible.  This new key finding was revealed in the Joshua Fund’s survey.

According to the survey, Some 44% believed that the current pandemic is a “wake-up call for us to turn back to faith in God” and “signs of coming judgment,” said the Joshua Fund, a charitable organization created to mobilize Christians to “bless Israel and her neighbors in the name of Jesus.”

Bestselling author Joel Rosenberg who created the fund with his wife, Lynn Rosenberg, stated: “Americans in near full lockdown are anxious, and understandably so. Yet millions are turning to God, the Bible, and Christian sermons for answers, some of them for the first time.

That may be the most important silver lining in this crisis so far.”  One-third of respondents of this poll also said they fear the end really is near. The Joshua Fund said that “29% said they believe that this crisis indicates that ‘We are living in what the Bible calls the ‘last days.’”
