“This is an evil in all that is done under the sun: that one thing happens to all. Truly the hearts of the sons of men are full of evil; madness is in their hearts while they live, and after that they go to the dead” (Ecclesiastes 9:3)
The Oxford American Dictionary defines ‘pandemic’ as “(of a disease) occurring over a whole country or the whole world.” It also defines ‘evil’ as something that is “morally bad, wicked.”
There is a spiritual disease (also called ‘sin’ or ‘depravity’). It refers to immorality and wickedness, found in every part of the world – – as a matter of fact, it is to be found in every human heart! The prophet Jeremiah (chapter 17:9, 10) exclaims, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it? I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.”
In these last days we have observed an explosion of evil on a massive scale. Basically, it amounts to a rebellion against the Word of God, the Bible! It is found in the highest echelons of society all the way down to the lowest of individual human behavior. This is far worse than any physical/medical pandemic! It is an arrogant antagonism against the God of the Bible. And the end of this categorical rejection of Jesus Christ is death. God is not kidding!
But, THERE IS STILL HOPE: God is still merciful! Dr. Luke writes these words in Acts 17:30, 31 – – “Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to REPENT, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man (the Lord Jesus Christ) whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”
