Did you know Luke 21:25 in the Bible can be alternatively translated to reference worldwide LOCKDOWNS?!

The usual way to read Luke 21:25 is in the KJV translation. Luke quotes Jesus speaking about the end of this age:

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and UPON THE EARTH DISTRESS OF NATIONS, WITH PERPLEXITY; the sea and the waves roaring”

Note the word distress, from Thayer Definition = “a holding together” – συνόχηsunochē Phonetic: soon-okh’-ay

Strong’s Concordance G4928 DISTRESS,

Root word from Strong’s G4912; RESTRAINT, that is, (figuratively) anxiety: – anguish, distress.

From dictionary: RESTRAINT noun

1a. The act of restraining:

b. The condition of being restrained, especially the condition of losing one’s freedom.

2a. An influence that inhibits or restrains:

b. A device or other means of restraining movement:

3. Control of the expression of one’s feelings;


1. The threat or use of force to prevent, restrict, or dictate the action or thought of others.

2. The state of being restricted or confined within prescribed bounds:

3. One that restricts, limits, or regulates; a check: “UPON THE EARTH DISTRESS OF NATIONS” can be understood as the RESTRAINTS, CONSTRAINTS or the LOCKDOWNS and VIRUS PASSPORTS being implemented by the world’s governments. Notice that the RESTRAINTS, CONSTRAINTS or the LOCKDOWNS and VIRUS PASSPORTS would have to result in “PERPLEXITY.” The root word of “perplexity” in Thayer Definition:

1) to be without resources, to be in straits, to be left wanting, to be embarrassed, to be in doubt, not to know which way to turn

2) to be at a loss with one’s self, be in doubt

3) not to know how to decide or what to do, to be perplexed.

Here is an accurate, legitimate alternative translation of Luke 21:25

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars, and across the earth, LOCKDOWNS of nations, without resources, being in straits, being left wanting, the sea and the waves roaring.” (Read more about the ‘sea’ as a metaphor here.)

You can read onwards to Luke 21:26, 27, 28. if you like.

During the worldwide lockdowns, people have not only been physically restrained. They have also lost many freedoms: freedom of speech, freedom to work, freedom to enter many public places and shops, loss of freedom involving freedom to run businesses, and medical freedom involving freedom of conscience.

As Jesus forecast, it easily fits the description of “distress of nations with perplexity.”

Of course, lockdowns are by no means the only interpretation of these verses.

God knows world events in advance (see Isaiah 46:10), therefore the application of this prophecy to recent events is valid. However, “distress of nations with perplexity” will take on other forms as Jesus’ prophecy continues to unfold… War, weather disasters, control of food supplies, the mark of the beast enforcement, and a one-world government are all coming soon!

Revelation 18:8 plus the rest of the chapter, describe the ongoing fall of modern day ‘Babylon’ and the systems of this world.

Like the Titanic, this world is on a collision course to disaster.
