Does the Bible tell us why we face the Coronavirus?

“…and there shall be famines, and PESTILENCES (capitals mine), and earthquakes, in divers places.”

Matthew 24:7

By now, I believe we are well aware of the prophecies Jesus gave a few of His disciples on the Mount of Olives near Jerusalem. His Olivet Discourse is the basis for so many studied predictions of what we can expect to happen in these Last Days. As I recently discussed in my post Is the Convergence of Prophetic Events explained in the Bible? it isn’t enough the things He said would happen are happening now but that they are directly tied to increased intensity and frequency of their occurrences. And, the fact is they are all “converging” at the same time! Recently, the world has been shaken with the outbreak in China of the coronavirus, a new strain of the flu which cannot be cured with antibiotics. When we first heard about it we heard it was first identified originating at an open air market where raw and strange food was sold. You probably recall they sold things like snakes, bats, etc. Recently, I saw the below post in Breaking Israel News and was amazed at what a Jewish writer found about the probable cause of this outbreak.

Bible Code Revealing True Cause of CoronaVirus Just Discovered

“According to Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson, a Bible Codes expert, the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus is directly connected to the violation of a Biblical prohibition.

Many of the early headlines in the international press link the appearance of the virus to the sale, in food markets in China, of many kinds of non-kosher animals, including live foxes, crocodiles, wolf pups, salamanders, snakes, rats, peacocks, porcupines and live koalas.

Leviticus 11:29

In a recent Bible Codes video on the topic, Glazerson asserted that, “Eating part of a living creature is one of the most severe sins from the Torah, even for non-Jews.” He further pointed out that not only is their physical damage as a consequence of this sin, but also spiritual damage occurs.

Turning his attention to the Biblical table he prepared, Glazerson points out that the world coronavirus, spelled out in Hebrew letters, is found close to the Hebrew words eiver min hachai (the prohibition against eating the limb or flesh of an animal while it is still alive). This prohibition is one of the Seven Noahide Laws, applicable to Jews and non-Jews alike.

“You must not, however, eat flesh with its life-blood in it.”

Genesis 9:4

The proximity of the Hebrew words for coronavirus and eiver min hachai in the Hebrew text suggests that the cause of the coronavirus is the violation of that Biblical prohibition.

In Jewish thought, the prohibition against eating from a live animal teaches a deeper lesson. If we tear a limb from a live animal to eat, not only is it cruel, but it also reflects another base character trait. Someone who grabs what they want and eats immediately is focused only on their animal desires. They lack the willpower and refinement to properly prepare their meal before indulging in it.

Glazerson points out that the word Sini (Hebrew for Chinese) is also found nearby these codes. On the same table, he also points out the Hebrew letters tav, shin and pay, which is how the current Hebrew year 5780 (2019-2020) is written in Hebrew letters.

All of these keywords related to the coronavirus plague are found, according to Rabbi Glazerson “exactly in the location in the Torah about things that you should not eat.” Then he quotes from verses that appear later in the Book of Leviticus:

“…I have set apart for you to treat as unclean. You shall be holy to Me…”

Leviticus 20:25:26

To those who accept them, Bible Codes reveal a deeper wisdom, far beyond the literal meaning of the text, which God encoded in the Hebrew letters of the Five Books of Moses. Since at least the 13th century, Jewish scholars have referred to “hidden information in the letters of the Torah.”

Rabbi Glazerson, who has published dozens of books related to Bible Codes, is well-known for finding keywords from important news stories embedded in the Hebrew text of the Torah. Although controversial in certain academic circles, these hidden codes serve to strengthen the belief of those who accept that the Hebrew text of the Five Books of Moses are the literal words of God.

It should be noted that Bible Codes cannot be used to predict future events. Rather, they reflect the fact that God, who wrote the Torah in Hebrew, embedded Divine evidence of future events in the Hebrew letters of the text.”

Now I personally have never had the desire to eat raw bat or snake meat, or eat flesh from a living animal, it is very comforting to know the Bible has told us beforehand what we can eat and what we should never eat. While many skeptics may call this assumption incorrect, the Scripture cannot be scorned! It does tell us to not eat certain foods.  If we do, there will be an ultimate price to pay!

After getting ready to post this article, I read in today’s Christians United for Israel (Link to article ) website that Israeli scientists believe within 3 weeks they will have a vaccination for the coronoavirus. It will take an additional 90 days to test it but, if accurate, it once again shows God’s Promise that He will Bless Israel and the world will be Blessed!  As was quoted to us so clearly in Zechariah 8:13:

“And it shall come to pass, that as ye were a curse among the heathen (Gentiles), O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, AND YE SHALL BE A BLESSING (capitals mine): fear not, but let your hands be strong.” 

Make sure you tell others what Dr. Adler has discovered, and comfort them so they know God is still in control! Help me to tell others and by doing so doing what Jesus instructed us all to do and that is to “…therefore comfort one another with these words.”

May God Bless you!

    While I agree with you that I have no desire to eat raw meat like bat or snake, I feel that we are no longer under the old testament food laws as outlined in Leviticus. In Mark 7:17-23 Jesus declared that all foods were clean. In Acts 10:9-16 Peter was informed by God through a vision said “Rise, Peter; kill and eat”. Wasn’t this a clear sign not to reject certain animals for food on a religious basis. Even Paul wrote in Romans 14:17 that the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace, and joy in the spirit. There is no saving grace in either eating or not eating certain foods. We are saved by the grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. I have had this debate with my sister who is a Messianic Jew and won’t eat things like bacon or shrimp and have tried to teach my child that it is wrong. I on the other hand take the stance that we are no longer under the old covenant but a new covenant and are free to eat things that were previously forbidden. After all, why did Paul call out Peter when he would eat with the Gentiles UNTIL certain men from Jerusalem came at which point, he refrained from eating with the Gentiles. Are you saying I am going against the will of God because I eat bacon wrapped shrimp?

      I agree with you. While sin certainly brought sickness and death to the world, and we are indeed in the last days/minutes, we are NOT under the law. Noahide laws are a spreading evil. We should not in ANY way give credence to them or so-called rabbis. I LOVE Israel but I don’t give special attention to these rabbis just because they are Jewish.

    Excellent. Thought provoking.
