Word up,can you handle the truth my brother only love HH In three short months, just like He did with the plagues of Egypt, God has taken away everything we worship. God said, "you want to worship athletes, I will shut down the stadiums. You want to worship musicians, I will shut down Civic Centers. You want to worship actors, I will shut down theaters. You want to worship money, I will shut down the economy and collapse the stock market. You don't want to go to church and worship Me, I will make it where you can't go to church" "If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." Maybe we don't need a vaccine, Maybe we need to take this time of isolation from the distractions of the world and have a personal revival where we focus on the ONLY thing in the world that really matters. Jesus.
Hogan stated that God had warned humans whenever they have gone wayward. About this, he mentioned the plagues of Egypt and also referred that God has taken away everything that humans worship. He questioned the integrity and the faith of today’s world, where according to him, people have more faith in materialistic things rather than God. He also said that if people worship athletes, then God will take down stadiums; if people worship musicians and artists, God will take down civic centers; if people worship money, then God will take down the economy.
The popularity of HH
With over 10,000 people dead of the dreaded Corona Virus in the United States of America, Hulk Hogan’s post received a lot of violent backlashes. However, the post climbed up with over 60,000 likes in just a day. This is proof of Hogan’s popularity, and Instagram audiences have eve come out to condemn Hogan of spreading such blind religiousness.
Before the pandemic, Hulk Hogan was announced as a member of the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2020. He was a part of the New World Order faction, which featured veteran superstars like Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman, and Scott Hall. However, Wrestlemania 36 had to move from Tampa to the WWE Performance Centre, and the ceremony was postponed keeping the pandemic in light. Once the induction ceremony has been done, Hollywood Hulk Hogan will be the part of a bandwagon that has the likes of Shawn Michaels, Booker T, and Bret Hart!
