Back to question

COVID-19 has torn through the fabric of our lives all over the world - with over 20M cases and nearly 1M deaths, and a global collapse in GDP that is historically unprecedented. Will it have long term impact, and what will that look like - economically, politically, and socially?

The Argument

To those who have been paying attention, coronavirus should be no surprise. Coronavirus is the manifestation of a biblical prophecy, representing one of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.[1] Revelation 6:8 of the bible reads: “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his named that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him and power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.” Coronavirus is clearly what this was foretelling, a deadly epidemic destined to wipe out a quarter of the world.
