Shalom friends, I am writing from you from DFW, ground zero for Ebola here in the USA. The hospital you have been seeing on the news is just 33 miles from my home.
Someone recently asked me if Ebola could be the first plague of the book of Revelation.
We read in the Book of Revelation:
1 And I heard a great voice from the Temple, that said to the seven angels, Go and pour
the seven bowls of the wrath of Eloah upon the earth.
2 And the first went and poured his bowl on the earth: and an evil and painful boil
came on the men who had the mark of the beast, and those who were worshipping his
The word here for “boil” in the Aramaic is shuch’na (שוחנא) the Aramaic cognate of Hebrew sh’chin (שחין). This word comes from a root word meaning “heat” and can refer to a boil, inflammation, or ulceration. (it is the same word used to describe the plague of “boils” which struck the Egyptians in the days of Moses). It is an absolutely accurate word to describe the hemorrhagic effects of the Ebola virus.
So is Ebola the fulfillment of the first plague? At this point that is hard to say. Certainly Ebola is the worst virus known to mankind, and is not known to have existed among humans until the late 20th century. This is a virus which kills most of the people it infects, and does no in a very horrifying and painful manner. This is a virus that was spewed forth from the pits of Gey Hinnom (“Hell”)!
Where did Ebola come from? Well experts tell us that Ebola entered the human population through the eating of “bushmeat” in west Africa. Bushmeat consists of such animals as bats, rats and monkeys, which carry the virus. These are all animals which the Torah tells us are “unclean” and which we are instructed not to eat (Lev. 11).
There is a warning given to us in the Torah:
58 If you will not observe to do, all the words of this Torah that are written in this book,
that you may fear this glorious and aweful Name--YHWH your Elohim--
59 Then YHWH will make your plagues wonderful: and the plagues of your seed, even
great plagues and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses and of long continuance.
60 And He will bring back upon you all the diseases of Egypt, which you were in dread
of, and they shall cleave unto you.
61 Also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in the book of this Torah,
them will YHWH bring upon you, until you be destroyed.
62 And you shall be left few in number, whereas you were as the stars of heaven for
multitude: because you did not hearken unto the voice of YHWH your Elohim.
Prophecy has been fulfilled in recent years, first with Aids, a disease which is believed to have entered the human population through bestiality and has been spread widely through sexual promiscuity, especially through homosexual activity.
Now what may be the worst virus ever known to man has entered the human population through eating unkosher foods, a virus that has the potential to wipe out the majority of mankind!
Is it a coincidence that this judgment is coming upon mankind at a time that immorality is spiraling out of control, as homosexuality is being normalized, “gay marriage” is becoming legal, and abortion rampant?
There is certainly reason to be concerned!
I am asking you all to step up as the Sons of Light and chip in to help support the work that we are doing here at WNAE.
