With the economic and psychological toll of Covid-19 still rising across the globe, many Bible-believers are wondering if we’re entering the end times foretold in scripture. What do the Books of Revelation, Daniel, and other prophetic portions of the Bible say about what we’re experiencing today? More importantly, what does the Bible say about what we can expect in the near future?
Bible scholar Jeff Kinley joined me on the latest episode of NOQ Report to answer these and other questions. His upcoming book, Aftershocks: Christians Entering a New Era of Global Crisis, looks into the scriptures for clues about what’s to come. He also analyzes the events unfolding around us as turmoil reigns through economic hardships, racial tensions, political upheaval, and growing animosity between nations.
“The Bible talks about some very specific events and issues that the world will face in the actual end times,” Kinley said. “And we’ve just been through just a complete upheaval in our world system right now. How does this relate to the end times, where are we in this whole thing, and how long is it going to last?”
There has been a rising interest in the Bible and specifically the eschatological aspects as we await prophecies to unfold. But there is also a major challenge the modern church faces as many have fallen away from the faith. This, too, was foretold in the Bible.
“Even in America, since 1993 we’ve never seen such decline in church attendance,” he continued. “In fact, a third less people go to church now than they did about 30 years ago. Some 75 to 150 churches every week in America are closing their doors.”
It isn’t necessarily Covid-19 itself that we should fear, though there’s always a chance that it can mutate and become far more deadly. It’s the fear caused by the pandemic and heightened by many in government that poses the greatest risk. While so many push for unity as a result of Covid-19 and its various repercussions, the push for globalism has become aggressive. Peddlers of ideologies and systems like “The Great Reset” are taking advantage of the chaos and fear to advance their agenda.
“Right on the heels of the whole corona madness, the corona chaos has been a call for one world unity, a call for globalization,” Kinley said. “In fact, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown and even Prince Charles and the former Secretary General of UN have all called for a global reset, of a global governance system that is to be headed up, they say, by one man.”
Alarm bells should be ringing in anyone who has read and believes in their Bible. The sentiment coming from the globalist elites are echoes of Bible prophecy, particularly the coming rise of a world leader who will unite the world under his rule.
“It would almost be comical if it just weren’t so true, is that they’re just playing into the Bible’s description of what the end times are going to be,” Kinley noted. “That the world will become one after a great crisis, and there will be one man to lead the whole thing.”
Wars and rumors of wars were mentioned by Jesus Christ as preceding the end of days. In the Middle East, peace deals brokered by President Trump are already looking to be in danger as Iran rattles its sabers at the world. Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Yemen are escalating their military efforts. China and India, the two largest nations in the world, seem poised for military conflict at any moment. All the while Joe Biden and Kamala Harris appear to be making matters worse.
It all comes back to the globalist intentions and the coming world leader who will claim to bring peace.
“We see in Revelation 6 that there’s going to be a world leader that’s gonna come onto the scene,” Kinley said. “The Bible calls him a rider on the white horse. He has a bow but he doesn’t have any arrows and most Bible commentators believe that means that he comes and he conquers peacefully. So, something would have to set in motion a chaotic world event or a chaotic world culture for one person to be able to step onto the scene and bring a sense of calm to that.”
We have not seen a time in modern history in which global chaos was more prevalent. This chaos is a necessary component through which Satan will be able to get people to willfully embrace his machinations.
“One of the things that we see—and this is something that really kind of jumped out at me as I wrote this book—is that when you begin with some sort of national or global crisis, then after that you predictably have a sense of chaos,” Kinley said. “People don’t know what to do, there’s a lot of fear, there’s some panic. Some of this thing on the heels simultaneously with social unrest, racial tension, anarchy in the streets, all of these that are happening in our country that really just contribute to a crisis mentality.”
One of the biggest weaknesses of man is our inherent desire for safety and security. The vast majority of sane people abhor the type of chaos we’re seeing around us. Many will be willing to give up freedoms and even ignore scripture if it means peace and survival. And governments will try to provide it for us.
“You have the government trying to bring a sense of calm to it and then in the end, scripture predicts that government ends up being in control,” Kinley said. “Satan has an agenda and according to scripture in Revelation 13 there’s going to be one person—the Antichrist, scripture calls him—that’s gonna really be in charge of the world. He’s going to bring that sense of calm initially but his endgame is to control. His endgame is to take freedom away and to have more of a groupthink mentality for the purpose of him being worshipped.”
Are we in or entering the end times? Tens of millions of Americans believe we are. Covid-19, racial tensions, and rumors of wars combine to make circumstances ripe for prophecy to unfold around us today. Stay frosty.

‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report has appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. One of our YouTube accounts was banned and another has been suspended. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancelation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects. These questions are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting cancelled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $5300 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
