- Corona will kill the elderly and the young will live in mourning for their parents.
- The young have deserted the way of their fathers rejecting religion.
- Corona is not the first plague in history; the solution given in the bible is charity and good deeds.
While modern medicine has not found a cure for Coronavirus, natural and spiritual healers have their own answers and suggestions to the deadly virus preferably for prevention but maybe also for healing the sick. Scripture teaches that before each disease God created a cure. The panic of a pandemic like corona creates a darkness which the Bible calls in sentence 2 of Genesis, emptiness and void, “And the earth was empty and void and darkness was on the face of the deep.”
Today the earth has become a place of emptiness and void with the darkness of Corona inflicting suffering on its inhabitants. The passage continues, “the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters (waters is the disease corona which covers the dry earth inflicting suffering as did the waters of Noah.) Finally came the time to end these sufferings when mankind has learned its lesson as it says in the third passage, And God said let there be light. And there was light” All the sufferings of life are for the sake of remembering and acceptance of the first passage of the Bible, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
Corona may kill millions of people but the elder’s grandfathers and grandmothers will be hardest hit including people who already have weaknesses. In the end of time scripture teaches that will come Elijah the prophet to bring the love of the elders onto their children and the love of the children for the fathers like it says in Malachi 4:6, “Behold I will send Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers. Otherwise I will come and strike the land with a curse.”
Italy is the hardest hit of all the countries in Europe. Italy is the place where is located the Vatican. The last generation of Christians have forgotten their heritage. The older Christians may attend mass, but not the younger generation. The birth rate of a family today in Italy has sunken to one child in a family. Italians are not following the teachings of the Bible about family, birth control, sexual promiscuity, gay marriage and study of the Bible. Corona has already killed thousands of fathers and mothers of these children of the new generation. The blood of their parents are on their hands.
Other places in the world are no different. There is a gap between the new generation and the old generation. The old traditions have been forgotten. Religion has been trampled upon and ignored. Amongst Jewish people it is no different. The Orthodox Jewish tradition has been preserved by the father’s mostly in religious Jewish communities but outside these communities has been assimilation with a secular life style.
In America large synagogues have been built for reformed and conservative Jews which even the younger generation does not attend on the Sabbath. For example at the Tree of Life reformed synagogue in Pittsburgh, where there was a shooting on the Sabbath, is the list of eleven people killed and six wounded– almost all middle aged or elderly Jews.
The State of Israel is a democracy which allows Jews to choose the style of life they prefer: secular, traditional or religious. Again in the third elections the nation is split between secular and traditional. The problem in Israel is so great that members of the Knesset outwardly attack the religious Jewish lifestyle. In Tel Aviv the average family has one child. Netanyahu, who is traditional, made a statement recently that the children will lose their fathers and mothers and grandparents who are the major victims of the disaster of Coronavirus.
President Trump, a progressive Christian Evangelist, has done his best to preserve religious values in America. He noticed that these values have gone downhill as liberal socialists and atheists continue to try to promote new laws allowing abortion and same sex marriage. Trump, Netanyahu, and most political leaders are not willing to allow their leaders to be killed by the virus and are doing everything in their power to prevent mass destruction. As an elder, 70 years old, I appreciate that our leaders are concerned about their fathers but I live with the passage of the Torah Deuteronomy 18:13, “Thou shalt be with perfect faith in God,” to mean to accept whatever the Lord will do as divine providence. At the same time there is a commandment, “Watch over your health.”
The prophecy of Malachi about the end of time and the coming of Elijah infers that Coronavirus is a test for the world to return the children who have strayed away from religion to think like their fathers who had attended church or kept the Sabbath. The young have to leave their arrogance rather than to seek only pleasure in life to also seek wisdom which is in the Bible and the Holy Scriptures. Plagues have come before and will come another plague which may be worse. These sufferings may not be necessary at all if the children will respond to this message from their fathers, “I will return the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers,” which means returning to old tradition.
While modern medical research attempts to find a vaccine for Corona there are natural remedies which God has placed in the world before bringing to the world the disease. In Chapter 30:11 Exodus, it says about a plague which struck the Jewish people in the wilderness, each person should give a ransom for his soul to the Lord that there be no plague amongst them. ”Scripture teaches, Charity saves from death.” Giving charity brings blessings in this world and the next world. Charity should be given to those that are needy. American Friends of Maccabee is a recognized charity in Israel and America.
The Bible mentions in many places about the miraculous power of Hyssop.
Hyssop has been used in traditional herbal medicine. It was burned with the Red Heifer (Numbers 19:6) and used for purification of Lepers. At the Passover it was used to sprinkle the blood of the Paschal lamb on the doorposts. A sponge attached to a hyssop branch was used to give Jesus on the cross a drink of vinegar.
The mystical letter of Rabbi Nachman and the chanting of Na,Nac,Nach,Nachman is used in Israel as a general remedy for all of the problems of life.
Most important is prayer and good deeds. There is a mirror in heaven which reflects the goodness down in this world from heaven down to earth which is called “good for good, evil for evil.” For every good deed is built a house in the next world for eternal rest. Everyone can take refuge in the Almighty God through prayer, confess their sins, make requests from God, begin to write prayer books.
For example: God we are in a crisis and need an answer. Please help me and every human being to find an eternal solution to the emotional pain of being in quarantine and a physical solution through medical science soon in our days. Open our eyes and hearts to the Messiah to receive from him our salvation.
There is a way for everyone to reach God if not through religion through the resurrection of Moses and the Universal Faith.
