As any good Church of God leader knows, it is always wise to take advantage of any current problem in the world to bolster our "prophetic" utterances. The Church of God has been doing this for 8 decades now. So many crazy prophecies have been uttered over the decades by self-appointed men that it is impossible to keep track of them all any more.
Even in 2020, we have an endless supply of crazy men who say some of the most idiotic stuff imaginable. That brings us to Wade Cox, the self-appointed leader of the so-called "Christian" Churches of God. This harlot daughter of Armstrongism is being run by a leader that thrives on conspiracy theories and end-times junk prediction-addiction.
According to Cox, we are in the time of the 5th Seal of Revelation, all thanks to COVID-19. The craziness this baloney factory dishes out is below:
This pope, the Red Black, is supposedly the Last Pope and is referred to in Malachy's prophecy as Peter the Roman. However, this pope was not canonically elected and hence his reign may be invalid, but for the present he is doing all that is required for this last officer of the system of the Whore. We are in the last days and the Beast and little horn will emerge under the blue beret or turban of the UN in this last empire of Satan.
The Fifth Trumpet has already been opened with this Corona Virus and in this war men will seek to die but will not be able to do so and hence many suicides will emerge. The part played in the development of the Globalist system by the Billionaires and the UN and WHO with China and the release from Wuhan in end September 2019, although denied by the Chinese and the WHO and the agents of the Globalists, will nevertheless be acted on. A French athlete went to Wuhan in October and became sick there and was later tested positive for the Corona Virus. It will escalate and the Sixth Trumpet will emerge and destroy one third of the world and then a further quarter in the pestilence and then result in the destruction of the entire UN and Globalist Beast System by Christ and the Host. The Rabbinical, Sardis and Laodicean systems (cf. Rev, chapter 3) will be smashed and scattered along with the Hillel Calendar (No. 195C) and Ditheist (076B) systems.
