Some Christian evangelists believe the coronavirus is just one of many events foretold by the Bible.
Paul Begley, a preacher from West Lafayette in Indiana, US, said “this virus will pass” in due time.
However, the self-titled ‘Coronavirus Prophet‘ also argued COVID-19 is one of the many plagues that will descend upon Earth as a precursor to the end times.
Pastor Begley said during an online sermon: “Guys, this virus will pass. The Lord has assured me it’s not the end of the world.
“The Lord has – I’ve been in prayer – the Lord has told me, ‘Paul this is just the beginning of sorrows, there will be more famines, more plagues’.”
