Before going nuclear, there is a divine rescue. On the 1st of Tishri
) in September, Jesus Christ snatches away His children. The context of the Rapture is the beginnings of World War III. Like Noah and Lot, God rescues His people before judgment begins.
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up [raptured] together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
The Tribulation begins as World War III worsens. The battlefield widens from China to India and Iraq. China's army crosses the Euphrates River and controls oil in the Middle East. The US, devastated by ~50 million citizens disappearing (rapture), uses tactical nuclear weapons and the war turns MAD (Mutual Assured Destruction). China, India and United States sustain the most casualties (~2.5 billion). The war ends 3½ years later in Nisan
(April) and the crowning of Antichrist.
If I [the Lord] shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; if my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:13-14
The coronavirus is a pestilence that signals the beginning of the end. China, United States and India will fight World War III

occurs on the new moon on the Feast of Trumpets (September) but what year? There is a reason why the world is on the edge of the Tribulation
