In writing this article I will assume you are current with the information about the COVID-19 virus (coronavirus) sweeping across the planet. Here are my thoughts on the virus: this virus was engineered in the USAMRIID somewhere in the late 1990’s or early 2000. It was designer built to target people with an Asian heritage if and when China, et al, became a threat to the United States militarily or economically. It was “allowed” to be stolen by individuals working for the Chinese Army at the most opportune time. I do not believe President Trump was aware of the existence of this plan by the Deep State to take down the Chinese economy. I believe it began with the NSSM 200 initiated under then Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. This was on my watch at NSA and I will leave it at that. Please realize that the release HIV/AIDS in Africa was a result of that program. There were thousands of Haitian workers working on a dam project in sub-Saharan Africa at the same time the WHO was pushing the smallpox vaccine in Africa. You can connect the dots. There is more but this is as far as I will go.
I am often ridiculed because of my faith, mostly from family members but, others as well over my view of Scripture and here it is in a nutshell: 2Ti 3:16 All Scripture is breathed out by Elohim and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for setting straight, for instruction in righteousness,
2Ti 3:17 that the man of Elohim might be fitted, equipped for every good work. At the time that the Apostle Sha’ul wrote this there was only Torah, the prophets (Neva’im) and the writings (Ketuvim). Taken together T-N-K came to be called the Tanakh in Hebrew, which is what we call the “Old Testament” in English. I prefer to call them the Tanakh or the Original Writings. Having explained this I will move on.
Torah (the Pentateuch) is probably the most overlooked section of Scripture in the modern world and if you don’t know and grasp Torah you have no basis for understanding the B’rit Hadasha (New Testament). That is why people miss the fact that everything happening today is predicted to happen in Torah. I have written about this many times and it goes all the way back to my August 4, 2014 article Why I was wrong about America’s Destiny.
Why did I name this article the way I did? Simple, please read: Lev 26:21 ‘And if you walk contrary to Me, and refuse to obey Me, I shall bring on you seven times more plagues, according to your sins,
Lev 26:22 and send wild beasts among you, which shall bereave you of your children. And I shall cut off your livestock, and make you few in number, and your highways shall be deserted.
I saw the curses coming to America in 2011 about the time that I started this blog, which was December 2011. I didn’t yet fully understand them and didn’t write about them until 3, almost 4, years later. Here is where normalcy bias gets in the way of interpreting Scripture. I could not for the life of me understand how YHVH could stop people from travelling in a vastly mobile nation like America. Obviously this was meant for a time when most people stayed at home and only a few traders carried goods on the backs of donkeys and camels. Surely a nation like America could never be shutdown. On 9/11 I saw how it was possible to do that but then I went back to sleep. Here we are on the cusp of a national quarantine and, if the information I have is correct, a travel ban under the authority of the Stafford Act. I was told that the implementation was being discussed at a military level Sunday night, March 15, 2020 in Washington, D.C..
Is it necessary for a travel ban to be in order to fulfill this Scripture? No! And here is why; the stores are closing, airlines are shutting down and some will go broke, events are being cancelled and cities are being described as “ghost towns”. It sounds to me that this Scripture has already come to pass.
Alright, I know what you are thinking; “Codger, this says wild beasts will bereave us of our children”. That is true but the word for beast is assumed. It literally means anything alive, or life itself including, soldiers. This nation has slaughter over 50 million unborn babies. This makes Hitler look like a Bantam Weight in the death department.
Also, it mentions cutting off of our livestock. I find it odd that the COVID-19 virus immediately followed the destruction of 1/2 of China’s hog population and now China is being hit by more than one strain of Avian Influenza. They are not here in America, yet. On top of all this China has now been hit by a locust swarm in its western districts. Sounds almost “Biblical” doesn’t it? But is this the end? No!
Lev 26:24 then I also shall walk contrary to you, and I Myself shall strike you seven times for your sins.
Lev 26:25 ‘And I shall bring against you a sword executing the vengeance of My covenant, and you shall gather together in your cities, and I shall send pestilence among you, and you shall be given into the hand of the enemy.
I highlighted the word “sword” because we are now in this cycle which is also the cycle of pestilence, you know, pandemics, is the modern word. I also highlighted the words “seven times” which indicates intensity. In other words our judgement will be 7 times more severe than it would have been if we had repented and returned to His Covenant.
What does YHVH mean by His Covenant? His original covenant that He made with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the one found in Torah, the one the people have forgotten.
“Codger, you keep writing prepping and survival articles and leave religion out of this.” Is that what you are thinking? What ever happens in our world today is just a manifestation of what is going on in the spiritual world around us. Hasatan, the devil, has tricked humanity into believing a lie, a lie that we are now paying the price for abandoning YHVH’s Covenant. “But wait, Codger, that is Old Testament and we are New Testament Christians. We don’t have to do any of that stuff.” You sure? Let see what the Apostle Paul (Sha’ul) says about it: Gal 3:27 For as many of you as were immersed into Messiah have put on Messiah.
Gal 3:28 There is not Yehuḏi nor Greek, there is not slave nor free, there is not male and female, for you are all one in Messiah יהושע.
Gal 3:29 And if you are of Messiah, then you are seed of Aḇraham, and heirs according to promise.
There is only one promise in Scripture that brings salvation and that is the promise given to Abraham: Gal 3:15 Brothers, as a man I say it: a covenant, even though it is man’s, yet if it is confirmed, no one sets it aside, or adds to it.
Gal 3:16 But the promises were spoken to Aḇraham, and to his Seed. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed, who is Messiah.
Yeshua (Jesus), is the fulfillment of YHVH’s promise to bring salvation to the world (many nations). It is not the culmination of the promise as the modern “church” believes. Look at the Scriptures below. I have taken them from the KJV Bible because that is probably what most of you have. You will see that I have highlighted the word salvation in each of these verses, and there are many many more but I cut it short for purposes of this article. The word used for salvation is the Hebrew word (Strong’s #3444) yeshua pronounced ye-shoo-ah. That is Jesus’ real name. It is the shortened form of the word Yehoshua which means YHVH’s salvation.
Exo_15:2 The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
1Sa_2:1 And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation.
2Sa_22:3 The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence. Psa_118:21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.
Psa_119:81 CAPH. My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word.
Psa_119:174 I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD; and thy law is my delight. Isa_49:6 And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.
We were deceived by the “man of sin” (KJV), “the man of lawlessness” (ISR). 1Jn 3:4 Everyone doing sin also does lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. Here is the thing that people don’t understand, when you read Scripture in its original Aramaic-Hebrew it is very plain, but Hasatan, through the “man of sin”, took it out of Aramaic-Hebrew and translated it into Koine Greek in the early 2nd Century and from there to Latin, then to German and then to English. Let’s look at one word in the above Scripture, lawlessness.
What is law in Greek? Law=G3551-nomos=law, specifically (of Moses [including the volume]; also of the Gospel), or figuratively (a principle): – law.(Strong’s Concordance). Law, specifically of Moses, you know, Torah. Now how do you say “to take away” in Greek? You use the prefix -a-. Example: is you believe in a god you are a theist, if you don’t believe in a god you are an atheist. Now, knowing this, how do you say lawlessness or iniquity? Anomos or anomia(G458/459). What does it mean? Torahlessness! Just like we see here in Scripture: Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Iniquity=G458!
I always wondered how Yeshua could deny people who called Him Lord and did many miracles in His Name would be denied salvation and it is because they were workers of Torahlessness.
Is Torah important? The decision is yours to make. If you decide it is not important then forget about all the judgments that are coming upon this nation. I know there are people out there prophesying PEACE, America will be great again, Trump will lead America back to greatness and more. I know, I have heard all these things and many more. America is in judgement and will pay the price for its sin. Isa_40:8 “Grass shall wither, the flower shall fade, but the Word of our Elohim stands forever.”
Who has the authority to undo His Word: Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim.
Joh 1:2 He was in the beginning with Elohim.
Joh 1:3 All came to be through Him, and without Him not even one came to be that came to be.
I want to include the following Scripture for two reasons, first, I want you to see that the Word of Elohim (YHVH) is Yeshua and second, pitched His tent among us is an idiom for the first day of Sukkot, the last fall feast, usually celebrated in September or October. In other words it tells us that Yeshua was born in the September/October time frame and unless you keep Torah you won’t know when he was born. Joh 1:14 And the Word became flesh and pitched His tent among us, and we saw His esteem, esteem as of an only brought-forth of a father, complete in favour and truth.
As I said earlier, it is your decision and I know I will get many angry comments and emails but at this point in time I don’t care. We are running out of time, and I will present an article about that very thing soon. We are nearly at the mid-point of the cycle of war and many will die and the cycle after that is even worse and many more will die. I wish 40 years ago, when I was in Bible College, someone would have told me what I am telling you now. I only tell you now because I love each of you and want you to have the very best of this life and the next, for each of you.
Num 6:22 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,
Num 6:23 “Speak to Aharon and his sons, saying, ‘This is how you bless the children of Yisra’ěl. Say to them:
Num 6:24 “יהוה bless you and guard you;
Num 6:25 יהוה make His face shine upon you, and show favour to you;
Num 6:26 יהוה lift up His face upon you, and give you peace.” ’
Num 6:27 “Thus they shall put My Name on the children of Yisra’ěl, and I Myself shall bless them.”
