Hello Seer: Is the current virus du jour of man-made or of natural origin? Was the 1918 Spanish flu of natural origin or? Why do military bases always seem to be in the link?
The technology did not exist a century ago to manufacture biological agents. It seems the Great War itself was the root cause of the pandemic as soldiers returning home from the bloody battlefields spread the virus far and wide.
War is inherently debilitating and destructive. That is why in the Scriptures Jehovah’s judgments always came in a triplicate set; namely, the sword, famine and pestilence.
The earliest record of germ warfare dates back to the Middle Ages, when, during the Black Death, diseased corpses were catapulted over the wall of the besieged city of Caffa.
But in the more recent decades, scientists around the world have developed all kinds of microbes that could be used in biological warfare. The advantage of germ or viral warfare is that it may not be perceived as an act of war but as a natural phenomenon.
As far as the current Coronavirus, or Covid-19 as it is called by virologists, I have no way of knowing if it is an intentional act or natural; after all, disease epidemics are fairly common. But given the present state of affairs, it is possible, even probable, that the epidemic is intentional.
At the heart of the world’s unrest is the impending collapse of the British Empire; specifically, the money system. London has made it clear that it is at war with Russia and China– and the United States if it dares to ally itself with them. China’s Belt and Road project is revolutionizing the Third World, which has long been crushed by the colonial masters. Take the ongoing war in Syria, for example. It is well known that NATO has been using Islamic terrorists to destroy the region. Now, Turkey, a NATO member, is threatening to drag the alliance into a war with Russia just to prevent the Belt and Road Initiative from transforming the Middle East.
Like Satan himself, the ruling oligarchs have the rule-or-ruin mentality. There should be no doubt that men are more than capable of intentionally causing the destruction of their fellow humans on a vast scale. A slaughter of epic proportions is inevitable.
So, yeah, opening up a new front of biological warfare in the heart of China fits into the pattern of the ongoing psychological, financial, cyber, proxy and propaganda wars. It might be intended to serve as a cover for suddenly collapsing the financial system. Whether or not Coronavirus becomes a full-blown pandemic remains to be seen though. It may become dormant and re-emerge later or mutate into something even more virulent. But this is not 1918. Nations are much better equipped to deal with epidemics now. And there is a jackpot waiting for the first pharmaceutical company that can mass-produce a vaccine.
One important lesson to be taken to heart is how quickly the world can change; how easily masses of people can be panicked. Jesus warned that his coming would take the world completely by surprise. One day men and women would be going about their business, buying, selling, building, planting, marrying, etc., and then— crash! Jesus also exhorted his disciples not to succumb to terror as people become faint with fright in dread of the horrors coming upon the world.
At some point, the horsemen of the Apocalypse will be unleashed. According to Revelation, the opening of the fourth seal will bring death to a quarter of the world: “When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say: “Come!” And I saw, and look! a pale horse, and the one seated on it had the name Death. And the Grave was closely following him. And authority was given them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with a long sword and with food shortage and with deadly plague and by the wild beasts of the earth.”
Given the fact that the horsemen are portrayed as men going into battle, it may well be that the deadly plague brought on by the fourth horseman will be biological warfare. Regardless of the source of the coming plague, the 91st Psalm speaks to that day: “Anyone dwelling in the secret place of the Most High will lodge under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to Jehovah: “You are my refuge and my stronghold, my God in whom I trust.” For he will rescue you from the trap of the birdcatcher, from the destructive pestilence. With his pinions he will cover you, and under his wings you will take refuge. His faithfulness will be a large shield and a protective wall. You will not fear the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the gloom, nor the destruction that ravages at midday. A thousand will fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, but to you it will not come near. You will only see it with your eyes as you witness the punishment of the wicked.”
