Considering the content of my last post, GOD IS FORCING CHURCH TO CHANGE, I was delighted to read the results of the recent Joshua Fund Survey.
A March 20 National Survey indicates 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 judgement,” said the Joshua Fund, a charitable organisation created to mobilise Christians to “bless Israel and her neighbours in the name of Jesus.”
According to Joel Rosenberg, creator of the Joshua Fund, “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.’”
However, as can be seen from the following chart, 63% of the non Christian respondents said that the crisis has not changed their mind. They still have no interest in God or spiritual matters. Sadly, 50% of Christian respondents said they have no more interest in God or spiritual matters as a result of the pandemic.
