The world is in lock-down virus, but get ready the Bible predicts more is to come.
From the beginning of this year 2020 a virus was made real as the New York Times said on January 8, 2020 in an article by Sui-Lee Wee and Donald G. McNeil Jr:
“China identifies a new virus that causes a disease similar to pneumonia. The new coronavirus does not appear to be easily spread by humans, but researchers warn that more study is needed.” That virus is known today as the “Coronavirus (COVID-19)”
In the same article it says: “The disease has evoked memories of the sars (Saurus) outbreak, or severe acute respiratory syndrome, in 2003. SARS, a respiratory disease and also a coronavirus, spread from southern China in 2003 and infected more than 3,000 people, killing 774.”
An article n BBC.com reads “Hundreds of billions of locust swarms in East Africa” by the BBC.com of March 10, 2020 also says:
“Hundreds of billions of locusts are ravaging parts of East Africa and South Asia in the worst infestation for a quarter of a century, threatening crops and livelihoods.”
Ths photo shows the great invasion of locusts on crops in Africa and how thousands of hectares of food are being lost everyday not only in Africa but others areas of the world and the hunger this can cause in the world is extremely dangerous. The destruction is greater than what people are capable of sowing.
Today we have more than 180,000 confirmed cases and more than 8000 deaths. Everyone n the world will be affect, but there is more to come according to the Bible, thousands more.
WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT PESTILENCES AND HUNGER?
Luke 21:11“and there will be great earthquakes and famines and pestilences in different places, and terrifying events and great signs of heaven.”
Matthew 24:7-8“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there will be pests, and famines, and earthquakes in different places. 8 And all this shall be the beginning of pain.”
Although these passages seem to talk about pestilence and prophesy about it in the present time it’s not really what they say.
In Luke Chapter 21 the people who accompanied him (Yeshua) heard him say:
Luke 21:5-7″As some told him about the Temple, how it was adorned with beautiful stones and votive offerings; He said, 6 Of these things which ye contemplate, there shall come days when there shall be no stone upon stone other than destruction (Yeshua told them about 70 AD when it was the Destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem). 7 And they asked him, saying, Master, when, then, shall these things be? And what signal will there be when these things are about to happen?
These people asked the Messiah of Israel when the Destruction of the Temple will happen, not about the End of Times. Yeshua was talking to them about the interval from the third year of the Yeshua Ministry, that time, to the Destruction of the Temple, that is from 31 to 70 AD.
But at the end of Chapter 21 t talks about the “End of Times”:
Luke 21:24-27″ And they shall fall at the edge of the sword, and they shall be taken captive to all nations (year 130 AD), and Jerusalem shall be hollowed out by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled (which happened in 1967 with the reconquest by the Jews). 25 And there shall be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars; and on earth, anguish of the people in despair at the bellowing of the sea and the swell, (This has definitely never happened) 26 fading men by fear and expectation of what will come upon the inhabited earth, for the powers of heaven will be shaken (Atomic Bombs in 1945). 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory (At the end of time).
In Matthew 24 it talks about the “End of Times” because the question of hs disciples was:
Matthew 24:3-4“And when he (Yeshua) sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached him apart, saying, Tell us, when will these things be, and what sign shall there be of thy coming, and the end of the century?
It clearly says in Matthew 24:7-8“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there will be pests, and famines, and earthquakes in different places. 8 And all this shall be the beginning of pain.”
IN APOCALYPSE CHAPTER 6 SAYS WHEN OPENS THE 4TH SEAL
THE WORLD WILL HAVE PESTILENCE & DEATH BY ANIMAL TRANSMISSION
In Revelation 6:1-9 says” And I saw when the Lamb opened ONE OF THE SEVEN SEALS and I heard one of the four living beings saying in a voice of thunder: Come out! 2 And I looked, and behold a white horse; and the one who rode it had a bow, and was given a crown, and came out overcoming, and to overcome. (The Yeshua Messiah)
3 When he opened THE SECOND SEAL, I heard the second living being, who said, “Come out!
4 And another horse came forth, red lit; and the one who rode it was given to take the peace out of the earth, and to kill one another; and was given a great sword. (It came a few years ago and since then there is no more harmony and peace among humans)
5 When he opened THE THIRD SEAL, I heard the third living being, who said, Come out! And I looked, and behold a black horse, and the one who mounted it had a scale in his hand.6 And I heard like a voice in the midst of the four living beings, which said, A quartlet of wheat by a deaser, and three quartles of barley by a denrium; but don’t damage oil or wine. (He comes to judge and is weighing with the scale to those who observe the Torah)
7 When he opened THE FOURTH SEAL I heard the voice of the fourth living being, saying, Come out! 8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse; and the one who rode it had the name Death, and Hades was still after him; and was given authority OVER THE QUARTER OF THE EARTH to TO KILL WITH SWORD , HUNGRY , PESTILENCE, and byTHE BEASTS OF THE WORLD.
Today 2020 with THE POPULATON IS ALMOST 7.7 BILLON INHABITANTS, the QUARTER PART OF IS ALMOST 2 BILLION DEAD, this FOURTH SEAL COMES with PESTS caused by the beasts of the land (Bats, Pandolines and other non-Kosher foods – Against Torah), wars (Swords) and by hunger (Caused by animals / locusts). Remember 2 billion human beings will die over the next years.
The FIFTH SEAL has not yet opened, but it is about to happen, the persecution of all the watchers of the commandments of God and the Torah, both Jews and Netzarim.
God as in the past is alerting us to seek his word, his Torah, and apply it in our vda and turn to Him. God has done this several times as in:
Amo 4:9-10 “I have smitten you with blasting and mildew: when your gardens and your vineyards and your fig trees and your olive trees increased, the palmerworm devoured them: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith Adonay. Amo 4:10 I have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: your young men have I slain with the sword, and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith Adonay.
WHAT THESE PASSAGES MEAN FOR YOU AND ME
Together we can pass these difficulties, but the seals will continue to open. This is just one more of the Pestilences that have come like Ebola, SARS (Saurus) and Coronavirus. Many more plagues will come and even worse, and famine in a globalized world. All because we do not follow the divine guide, Torah, because we do not stop anxiety and greed, because we do not care for our relationship with animals and the environment.
Remember 2 Billion human beings will die over the next years.
As it says in Psalms 91:
Psalm 91:1 “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. (To you)
Because you love Elohim, you observe his word, and you love others as yourself!
Blessings to all
