Hello and Happy Day! This is Dr. MaryAnn Diorio, Novelist and Life Coach, welcoming you to another episode of Winning with the Word. Today is Monday, May 25, 2020. Today’s Podcast is Episode #21 in Series 2020 and is titled “How to Deal with the 'New Normal'."

The events of the last few months have set the world in a tailspin from which it may never recover. While we all wish things could go back to the way they used to be, chances are good that they will not. Wherever we turn, we hear the words "the new normal." 
What is the "new normal" and how can we deal with it?

First of all, it will help to understand WHY the new normal before we discuss how to deal with it.
Unless you are a student of Bible prophecy, you may not be aware that what we are experiencing today with the Corona virus and all the political upheaval attendant to it was foretold in the Bible. Jesus warned us of certain signs that would occur before He returns for His followers. And, yes! Jesus will soon return for His followers! For those of us who have received Him as our Savior and Lord. For those of us who are born again.

Jesus described the signs we are witnessing today as the contractions--or birth pains--of a woman in labor. Let's take a look at Matthew 24: 3-8:

"As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. 'Tell us,' they said, 'when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?'

Jesus answered: 'Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, "I am the Messiah," and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.'"
We are personally witnessing these birth pains in our world today. First of all, there is mass deception. People are calling good, evil and evil, good. People are believing the Lie instead of the Truth.

The first warning Jesus gave in answer to His disciples' question about the end times was, "Do not be deceived!" All around us, people are being deceived by the media, in many cases by the pulpit, and in also many cases, by our governmental and educational systems. 

Throughout the world, there are wars and rumors of wars. Iran is threatening Israel. China is threatening the United States. Nation is rising against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. We are hearing of famines in many places, and earthquakes are increasing in frequency and in intensity, including in areas where earthquakes have heretofore been rare.

Jesus called all of these signs "the beginning of birth pains."

Well, what happens when birth pains begin for a woman in labor? They get stronger and stronger until the actual birth and delivery of the baby.

The earth's birth pains will also get stronger and stronger, until the birth of God's Kingdom when Jesus Christ Himself will return to rule the earth during the thousand-year period called the Millennium. The birth pains will be the strongest during the period of time that will follow the Lor...
