Many world leaders are describing their response to the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world as a war against an invisible enemy.
What can the account of 2 Kings 2:23-24 reveal to us about this pandemic?
World Leaders and the Young Men
In 2 Kings 2:23-24 we see that there were young men who mocked Elisha. In our post The Bear Market Opening a Path to Life we explained how the young men represent the worshippers of Baal.
World leaders today reject the authority of God. They make laws which directly oppose and reject Him. By this rejection world leaders can not be described as His servants… being a servant does require that one recognises the authority of the one he serves.
By rejecting the authority of God our leaders worship and serve another god – they are worshipping a modern day version of the Golden Calf… and are its prophets.
We can liken the world leaders of today with the young men in the account of 2 Kings 2:23-24.
By rejecting the authority of God our world leaders (and by extension society as a whole) are mocking Him.
COVID-19 and the Word of God
Elisha cursed the young men who mocked him in the name of the Lord. As a result two she bears came out of the woods and tore through them.
In our previous article The Bear Market Opening a Path to Life we explain how the bears, being filled with the Word of God, opened a path way through the false god.
The COVID-19 pandemic can be likened to Elisha’s curse.
- COVID-19 is a coronavirus. Corona in Latin means “Crown”. The virus is also shaped as a crown.
- 19 is the number for faith and hearing.
Here we see the imagery of a crown, or royalty, connected with faith and hearing… the Word of God.
Elisha’s Bears and the Bear Market
In 2 Kings 2:23-24 we see that the two bears made a path through the worshippers of the Golden Calf, allowing Elisha to pass through and commence his ministry.
The outbreak of COVID-19 sparked the bear market that tore through the bull market.
The Word of God has revealed the true nature of the Golden Calf, the Bull market, that our society has collectively been worshipping.
Is a Vaccine the Way Forwards?
Our modern day prophets of Baal are looking at every possible method by which to overcome the pandemic… with the exception of turning in humble repentance to the Almighty God.
They are looking to overcome by their own strength – marshalling the combined intellect of man in order to develop a vaccine.
A vaccine to immunise against COVID-19… to immunise a population against the Crown, faith and hearing, so that it no longer recognises it… cementing an ideology that man is god and has no need for another.
However by looking to a vaccine the modern prophets of Baal are subconsciously recognising that only the Almighty God is the answer… even though they reject and despise Him.
A vaccine is is derived from a killed or weakened form of the disease causing microbe, its toxins, or one of its surface proteins.
If we see COVID-19 as illustrating the Word of God, a vaccine is therefore derived from the killed Word of God… Yahshua Himself.
So How do we move forwards?
Do we recognise that the Cornavirus spreading around the world today is the Hand of God, tearing its way through our false gods? That it is opening up a new pathway?
Will we turn back to Him in humble repentance, seek His face and worship Him alone?
Or will we continue to reject Him… worshipping the Golden Calf and its prophets?
