COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic vs NWO
The whole world is the fearful grip of COVID-19 the Coronavirus pandemic with no clear outcome of it. In the most infected countries of the world, those of Europe, there are curfews and restriction of movement of people, ration of healthcare and medications in a desperate attempt to curb the spread of the pandemic of COVID-19 the Coronavirus.
Europe known with its Schengen treaty between its member countries to end border control for travel between them is a part of the past, as most of the Europeans are not even allowed to leave their homes much less to travel.
The old lady Europe is rapidly dying. She was dying even before COVID-19 the Coronavirus pandemic due to low birth rate and aging population, but now its death is being accelerated even beyond human control.
Many pundits give their expertise daily as to what needs to be done to minimize the viral pandemic of COVID-19 the Coronavirus. The governments and the global world economy are attempting to curb the coming the inevitable high rate of unemployment, as more and more businesses may go into bankruptcy or are suffering the consequences of COVID-19 the Coronavirus outbreak.
And all of these woes due to a microbe called with the technical name COVID-19 (or SARS-CoV-2) for COronaVIrus Disease and the number 19 is for the year of the viral outbreak.
How impotent is the all-powerful Global World before the microbe!
In Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) we will take a different approach to the pandemic of COVID-19 the Coronavirus and will see it from different perspective.
But everything started with …
One World Order
After the universal Flood in the days of Noach, Elohim blessed his sons, saying, “Be fruitful and increase and fill the earth”. (Gen 9:1)
And as they set out from the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar (the land of Bavel), and they settled there. And the mankind that came out of Noach’s loins spoke one tongue.
But instead of spreading throughout the earth and fill it, they said in one accord to build a city and a tower whose top to reach in the heavens, and make a name for themselves, lest they be scattered over all the earth.
Despite the will of the Creator to spread and fill the earth, the mankind settled in the land of what would be the future Babylon, built a city “Babel”, and established their own government to govern over them in one accord. The first world leader at that time was Nimrod, son of Kush, son of Ham—a mighty man in (against) the Face of YHVH.
And they made a name for themselves to be one family with one tongue. This name they wanted to make for themselves we may call today “One World Order”—one world of one people, of one tongue, and without borders.
As the people were building their own parliament aka the Tower of Babel, to become one people and one language, the Creator confused their language, so that they would not understand one another’s speech. And He scattered them from there, over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city.
That is why its name was called Babel (to confuse), because there the Creator confused the language of all the earth, and from there He scattered them over the face of all the earth. (Gen 11:6-9)
Thus, the seventy main nations were created having their own tongues and lands. They can be found in the Table of Nations in Genesis 10:1-32, which lists the descendants of Noach and the nations they founded.
From Yaphet the son of Noach, the coastland peoples of the nations separated themselves in their lands and languages (Gen 10:1-5) and created the nations on the Mediterranean coast aka “the isles of the nations”, on the European shore, from Asia Minor to Spain. Others went northwardly to settle in Eurasia—the vast land formed by the continents of Europe and Asia.
From Ham the son of Noach, the African people separated themselves in their lands and languages (Gen 10:5-7) and created the nations in Africa and on the east coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
And from Shem the son of Noach, the Semitic people separated themselves in their lands and languages (Gen 10:21-31) and created the nations in the Middle East and south Asia. The generations that emerged from Noach’s sons after the flood spread out and populated the earth as a result of natural growth.
Five thousand years later, the descendants of Noach, represented by the United Nations which, as its name implies, intended to revive the concept of a one world order, this time they called it “New World Order”, that would erase the Biblical concept of nations, a concept that was initiated in the time of Noach.
They even had the futile idea to revive, as much as they could, the concept of one world language by creating an artificial language based on words common to all the European (Yaphetic) languages—Esperanto.
Nevertheless, the Biblical concept of nations will be reinforced in the time of the Messiah, when those survivors of the nations that had come up against Jerusalem, will come from year to year to bow themselves to the King, YHVH of the powers to celebrate the Festival of Sukkot (Zec 14:16).
But, before the time of the Messiah the world will be ruled by eight empires.
New World Order
Rev 17:3-13 speak of eight world empires which have one thing in common namely that they all ruled over the Promised Land. Five of them at the time of writing of Revelation did not exist any longer; one was in existence, and that was Rome, and one was yet to come.
Below are these eight empires given in order of their reigns:
- Egyptian Empire. Fallen. Around 3100 B.C., Narmer (also known as Menes), son of Kush, son of Noach, was the first Egyptian pharaoh to conquer and rule over Upper and Lower Egypt. Various pharaohs reigned in a unified Egypt for twenty-one successive dynasties until around 1100 B.C. when Upper and Lower Egypt split. Assyrians conquered Egypt in 669 B.C.
- Assyrian Empire. Fallen. The Assyrians, the sons of Shem, son of Noach, came from Mesopotamia, modern day Iraq and reigned until 625 B.C. During their reign, they controlled all of the Fertile Crescent, including Egypt, before the revolt of the Babylonians.
- Babylon. Fallen. Babylon, the revived Babel, was located in Mesopotamia within modern day Iraq. Nabopolassar, father of Nebuchadnezzar, descendant of Shem, overthrew the authority of Assyria in the year 612 B.C.
- Persian Empire. Fallen. Under the rule of Cyrus, the Great and Darius the Great, the descendants of Elam, son of Shem, Persia became the largest and most powerful empire in history at that time. Persia fell to the Greeks when Greece invaded and conquered, after which it collapsed and disintegrated in 330 B.C.
- Greek Empire. Fallen. Alexander III of Macedon, descendant of Yaphet, ascended the throne in 336 BC after his father Philip II was assassinated.
These are the five empire that “have fallen” before Revelation was written.
- Roman Empire. One is. This empire was the one “that is” or was in existence at the time the Revelation was penned.
The five hundred-year-old Republic of Rome completed its transition to empire at the time of the first emperor, Augustus. Roman expansion intensified under Julius Caesar, the first one to be appointed perpetual dictator, and reached its zenith under Emperor Trajan.
In 395 AD the Roman Empire was divided into Byzantine empire and Rome. At that point the capital was simply moved to Constantinople and the empire was divided into the east and west legs of the New World Order King Nebuchadnezzar dreamed.
The western leg of the Roman empire would fall to the invading Visigoths, but Byzantium continued as an empire for another thousand years, when finally fell in 1453 AD to the invading Seventh Empire, envisioned in Revelation.
If Rome with its two legs was the sixth empire, and the so-called “Revived Roman Empire” is the eighth, then the Ottoman empire must be the seventh.
- Ottoman Empire. Has not yet come. At the time of writing of Revelation, the Ottoman (Turkish) empire was on the scene, not until 1453 AD when the eastern leg of the Roman empire was conquered. It existed until the end of the First World War in 1913 by the British empire.
- [?]. That was, and is not, is also the eighth. This empire the apostle marveled on and did not comprehend is the one that “was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the pit”.
The expression “and is about to come up out of the pit” can only mean that the mysterious eighth empire will be reborn out of all previous empires, not out of the Roman Empire only, because as of the time of writing all other five empires ceased to exist, but Rome did not; Rome has never been destroyed.
Also, the Revelation from YHVH goes on to say that the eighth empire “is not” meaning it was not Rome itself, and it also says “and is about to come” meaning it will exist in the future.
All three conditions (“was, and is not, and is about to come”) can be met only, if the eighth empire would emerge from the past and it will exist in the future.
This we studied in Part II of the present author’s book Reckoning of Time.
Now, let us return to the great image the king of Babylon dreamed, the image of gold, silver, bronze, and iron and clay. The insertions into the text are for more clarity.
This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. … You, O sovereign, are a sovereign of sovereigns [Babylon]. … You are the head of gold. And after you rises up another reign lower than yours [Persia], and another third reign of bronze that rules over all the earth [Greece]. And the fourth reign is as strong as iron, because iron crushes and shatters all [Rome]. … Yet, as you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the reign is to be divided [Rome and Byzantium]. But some of the strength of the iron is to be in it, because you saw the iron mixed with muddy clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the reign is partly strong and partly brittle. And as you saw iron mixed with muddy clay, they are mixing themselves with the seed of men, but they are not clinging to each other, even as iron does not mix with clay. (Dan 2:31-43)
As we stated in the aforementioned book of Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), it is incorrect to say that the European Union (E.U.) is the mysterious eighth empire in the prophecy in the form of the “Revived Roman Empire”, as most of the commentators claim.
The E.U. is not the eighth empire itself but the precursor of it, or the model which the other nine regional treaties (of total of ten) follow suit.
The European Union is also the head of gold of the United Nations as Babylon was the head of gold of the image Daniel saw.
And where it is said in the prophecy that they will mingle with the seed of men, the Tanak commentator Rashi (Shlomo Yitzchaki, 1040 – 1105) interprets it thus: “they (Rome) will intermarry with the other nations but they will not be at peace and truly cleave to them wholeheartedly, and their laws will differ from the laws of the other nations”.
It is not very difficult to see in Rashi’s comments the fate of the E.U. as having been mingled with the seed of foreign men that invade Europe—the seed that by nature is unable to cling to the host.
COVID-19 the Coronavirus pandemic
First world pandemic
The first ever recorded pandemic affected the eastern leg of the Roman Empire (Byzantium), which resulted in the deaths of 25 million to 50 million people (13–26 percent of the world’s population) in 541–542 AD, with recurrences until 750. The pandemic spread inland by the transferring of merchandise. The cause of the bubonic plague was Yersinia pestis bacterium responsible also for the second pandemic in 1347–1351.
Second world pandemic: The Black Death
In 1347, Europe experienced the deadliest outbreak in human history, when the bubonic plague killed a third of the population (75 to 200 million people in Eurasia).
The Black Death originated in Central Asia (probably Mongolia). The Mongols cut off the trade route, the Silk Road, between China and Europe and pandemic began with an attack by the Mongols on the Italian trading station in the Crimea. Those of the Italian merchants who managed to flee on their ships, unknowingly carried the Black Death by the fleas on rats. Then the plague spread to Italy and throughout Europe, North Africa, and Arabia.
From Italy, the disease spread northwest across Europe, striking France, Spain, Portugal and England, and then through Germany, Scotland and Scandinavia from 1348 to 1350. Finally, it spread to northwestern Russia in 1351.
The Black Death is estimated to have killed 475 million to 350–375 million (30 to 60 percent of Europe’s population) It took 200 years for Europe’s population to recover to its previous level. The plague recurred as outbreaks until the early 20th century, with which we are coming to the third pandemic.
The religious fanaticism and anti-Semitism bloomed in the wake of the Black Death targeting the Jews for allegedly having poisoned the wells. The attacks against Jewish communities occurred in the Strasbourg massacre of February 1349, when about 2,000 Jews were murdered, in August 1349, when the Jewish communities in Mainz and Cologne were totally annihilated, and by 1351, over 200 Jewish communities were destroyed.
Third world pandemic
The third plague pandemic started in China (1855–1859), spreading to all continents and killing 10 million people in India alone with outbreaks in Australia between 1900 and 1925 resulted in over 1,000 deaths. The cause: the transmission from rat fleas to humans of the same bacillus Yersinia pestis.
We should note that all three pandemics originated in the central Asia, China, and resulted catastrophically in Europe.
Yersinia pestis (named after Alexandre Yersin, a Swiss/French physician and bacteriologist from the Pasteur Institute) is a coccobacillus bacterium, with no spores.
It is an anaerobic organism that can infect humans via the Oriental rat flea that causes the disease plague, and which takes three main forms: pneumonic, septicemic, and bubonic, hence “Bubonic plague”. All three forms have been responsible for the three high-mortality epidemics throughout the human history.
Fourth world pandemic — COVID-19 the Coronavirus
Unlike Yersinia pestis, though, COVID-19 the Coronavirus is a single-stranded RNA virus, not bacterium. The bubonic plagues decimated the world population, especially Europe, while COVID-19 the Coronavirus is not even close to the mortality of its predecessor.
Yet, the similarities between the Bubonic plagues and COVID-19 the Coronavirus pandemic are nevertheless striking—both pandemics originated in central China as an epidemic and (as of the time of writing) Europe is considered by WHO the epicenter of COVID-19 the Coronavirus pandemic. See the situation reports according to WHO here.
A quick review of the daily stats in www.worldometers.info shows that although China is leading the standing in absolute numbers of total cases, it is again Europe and especially Italy (Rome) in particular, and the western world in general, that leads in total cases per a million population, which is the real pointer of COVID-19 the Coronavirus pandemic.
The lesson of COVID-19 the Coronavirus pandemic
Then and now, the world wants to live in its own order and governance. It was the One World Order then and the New World Order now.
What does the outbreak of COVID-19 the Coronavirus pandemic teach us?
Which sins were worse, those of the generation of the dispersion after the Flood or those our generation?
The former indeed stretched forth their hands against the Creator to wage war against Him to establish their One World Order, but they lived in unity and brotherhood, while the latter not only stretched forth their hands against Him, but live in violence, depravity, debauchery, and corruption.
The former was dispersed and while it did not perish from the world because of behaved with love and friendship among themselves, the latter will, because it is a generation of abominations and of strife, and therefore it will be destroyed.
And perhaps, COVID-19 the Coronavirus pandemic is the way the rulers of the world will see that the policy of multiculturalism and freedom of movement of capital, and transplanting of people and cultures of the New World Order does not work, as it has never worked.
Perhaps, COVID-19 the Coronavirus pandemic will make them see that the toes of their feet are partly of iron and partly of clay, and their reign is partly strong and partly brittle, as iron does not mix with clay; and mixing themselves with the seed of men is futile because they do not cling to each other.
Just perhaps, COVID-19 the Coronavirus pandemic will make the rulers see the Writing on the wall concerning the New World Order.
Passover and COVID-19 the Coronavirus pandemic
Millions of Jews in exile were accustomed to “celebrate” the Passover in lavish golf clubs and fancy restaurants eating GMO chicken breast and matzah ball soup. But this time has gone. Now, we will experience Passover somewhat real.
Contrary to plan or expectation, for the first time after YHVH gave the law of the Pesach (Passover) lamb, Israel and the grafted-in righteous gentiles will observe the coming Festival of Unleavened Bread in 2020 the same way the Israelites and all righteous mixed multitude did in Egypt: in a non-festive manner, in the confined environment of our houses, eating the Passover lamb with unleavened bread in haste and fear while outside death is going from house to house.

May we merit seeing the coming of our Mashiach speedily in our days.
