- 1 The Drastic Twist Coronavirus has brought to Humanity
We are not all infected by coronavirus but we are all affected. Living with restrictions that we are not so used to, is a challenge we will have to contend with for quite some time.
Manufacturers of hand sanitizers must be making unexpected profits as we are in a rush to secure the lives of our loved ones.
We are living in the days when even non-news fanatics get glued to the televisions to keep themselves updated with the scary turnouts. The rate at which the virus is spreading is mind-boggling.
It has come to a point where with or without coronavirus, self-quarantine is mandatory. From the time the first case was detected, things have been moving from bad to worse.
Supermarkets are packed with rush-shoppers trying to secure enough necessities.
One message we hear from the authorities every day is – do not panic.
What are we doing as we wait for the unknown outcome?
Every man for himself and God for us all as stated by Geoffrey Chaucer is a phrase, we may each need to keenly revisit during this time of the coronavirus epidemic. Every individual must do something to curb the virus.
Maybe you are already working on it! Bring it on, I do not mind puffing my knowledge base with some more, as I also share my explicit vision with you. You will find it right ahead.
I believe the message I got came from God after a long plea for His intervention. Within the next few seconds, I struggled to come to terms with what I had read because it startled me. I developed an interest to research further and collected quite some information that is good for you too.
Coronavirus is beyond human understanding.
That’s the message!
Straight away, you can tell where I want to take you to!
Jeremiah 45 was my cup of coffee early morning today, short and precise with only five verses. I could tell that God gave us that message without blinking an eye. It is worth quoting the heavyweight verses for ease of internalization of the message. The vision I share ahead also relates to it.
Jeremiah 45: 4-5; “But I the LORD, I’m tearing down what I have built and pulling up what I have planted. I will do this to the entire earth. Are you looking for special treatment for yourself? Don’t do it. I am bringing disaster on the whole human race, but you will at least escape with your life where you go. I the LORD have spoken.”
It is worth noting the significance of the three characters mentioned in the whole chapter. They were Jehoiakim who was the king of Judah at the time. He was the son of Josiah who was the previous king and Baruch was prophet Jeremiah’s secretary.
Understanding these three characters will help you pick relevant points from the coronavirus prediction and the interpretation of my vision ahead.
But what did God want us to derive from the message?
Without much ado, let’s get to understand each character more profoundly.
The Chronicles of King Jehoiakim’s reign
God spoke these stern words during king Jehoiakim’s reign. It goes without say, that a lot was flimsy during his leadership. He only ruled for eleven years but messed a lot even though he began to rule as an adult at the age of twenty-five years.
His leadership was lukewarm. He, therefore, bent God’s rules in favor of the world a lot of times. You can read more about him in 2 Kings 23: 35-37 & 24: 1-7.
King Josiah’s Peaceful Leadership
The mention of Josiah may look insignificant in this chapter but I will tell you why it makes sense.
Josiah was Jehoiakim’s father and he ruled pretty well for 31 years. The fact that he began to rule at the age of eight years and did handsomely well disqualifies Jehoiakim’s ugly rule irrespective of his age.
We needed to know that Jehoiakim was the son of Josiah so that we can compare the rule of two members of the same ancestry. Worth to note is that Josiah took the example of his ancestor King David. Josiah’s father Amon and grandfather Manasseh also disappointed the Lord during their tenures.
It’s worth mentioning that the first time I heard about coronavirus, I flipped my Bible and landed on King Josiah’s rule and specifically when he was destroying the places of pagan worship (2 Kings 23: 1-20).
That was a direct message that we need to bring out the Josiah in us if we expect coronavirus to come to an end.
Concerning Josiah’s story, I will leave you with this order to help you derive some helpful tips that can guide your conscience. Take note of the order, the first being the oldest, and remember they are from the same lineage.
- Manasseh – Disappointed God
- Amon – Disappointed God
- Josiah – Ruled according to the will of God
- Jehoiakim – Disappointed God
The light from the little-heard Baruch – Prophet Jeremiah’s Secretary
My conscience tells me that coronavirus has come at the right time. It has created a need for a deeper understanding of the Lord. It’s never too late.
God promised to save Baruch as indicated in Jeremiah 45 but Baruch did not stop there. He wrote a short book that only has five chapters and there is a lot to learn from it.
One significant message I got from the book of Baruch is that when it was read, everyone cried, fasted, and prayed to the Lord. You have heard this a lot, but you will get it well pronounced from the book of Baruch. It is the book of the coronavirus season.
Looking at the Bible content mentioned herein with the coronavirus fears, we are in a situation similar to the situation in Judah at the time. The book of Baruch is a good prayer guide that resonates with the current situation.
It has a lot of information that puts you in the required prayer mood for the season.
Remember we are in the Lenten season where each of us is expecting to cross over to our individual Canaan’s before, during the Holy Week or thereafter.
It is hard to believe prophesies from fellow human beings yet it is sad to imagine that you dismissed a prophesy and it caught up with you unprepared. Anyway, people did not believe Jesus too.
Sylvia Browne was often dismissed yet her prophesy in the year 2008 has turned out to be the coronavirus we are trying to eradicate.
Maybe it will allow you to leave this coronavirus desert a changed person. No matter how good you are, you cannot miss something to top up your goodness or make amendments.
There was plenty of water, more like a big river or an ocean in one of the areas hit by coronavirus. I stood on one side of the huge volume of water and I could see a few people on the other side.
Cars willingly drove into the water and got submerged. I felt like that water was so deep. There is not a single car that attempted to swerve to escape the tragedy.
All over sudden, I found myself on the other side together with the few people who were there. We could hear people screaming in the water, definitely in those cars, but we could not help.
The cars landed with the bonnet facing down and the car boot facing up and remained in that position. I could see seven number plates of the cars lined up in two rows.
My friend Regina and I had a short discussion and settled on a particular person whom we thought could help save them. I don’t remember if we appointed anyone to contact him but I know we waited for him in vain.
On our left was the church so I decided to go and attend mass. The church was full. I rushed back to the scene after mass and realized there were no more screams. Nobody had come to rescue them and probably the worst had happened.
I walked away after a while, leaving my friend Regina and the others on site.
Interpretation of the Vision
Seven is a symbolic number that denotes completion in the Bible. God has had enough ridicule from His children and the decision He has made is final. You can refer to Jeremiah 45 which I already mentioned above to understand that finality.
As people were honoring the Lord at mass, others were screaming helplessly in the water. It means there is still room to make a choice of which direction we want to go. We also need to remember that it is only God whose power is supreme.
The use of cars indicates human power. The bonnet facing down, and the car boot facing up means the human head facing down, and the feet facing up. Coupled with the eventual silence of the victims, it suggests a permanent end to an era since we cannot walk or operate with our heads touching the ground.
The fact that we waited for someone who was thought to have the machinery, to come and save the victims, and he did not come suggests the coronavirus is beyond human ability. We need to take it to the Lord.
Coronavirus may turn around the world at large but that is not what matters. Our position matters more. We should focus more on what the calamity teaches us.
Baruch went ahead to plead on behalf of Judah yet he was promised salvation. He felt the need to experience God’s goodness with everyone else. Don’t sit back even if your hood is still safe. The affected may not be in a position to pray for themselves, they need you.
If we embrace God, He works in three faces. Repentance, deliverance and then restoration in that order. Baruch brings it out so clearly in his book. His writings are very enriching prayers. Don’t just read the book, pray like Baruch.
God does not expect anyone to permanently play the secondary role of relying on others for guidance. He wants growth and therefore requires all His children to lead like Josiah.
Please care to help a friend bury coronavirus and get a soothing sleep by sharing this post.
