Revelation and Coronavirus

By |2020-02-13T01:35:27-08:00February 13th, 2020|Coronavirus, Trying Faith Blog|0 Comments

Here is an interesting parallel I found between Revelation 12:3 and the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Take a look at what Revelation has to say (color added for reference)...

By |2020-02-11T22:49:59-08:00February 11th, 2020|Coronavirus, Trying Faith Blog|0 Comments

How intelligent is it for the CDC to release those under quarantine from Huhan, China after 14 days? Especially when there is a study (apparently not peer reviewed yet) that has found the median (average) incubation period for this Coronavirus as 3.0 days.
