EBOLA: The Beginning of the End?
1996 TOM CLANCY NOVEL: ATTACK ON AMERICA USING EBOLA
EBOLA AND EXECUTIVE ORDERS
WHAT AMERICANS ARE REALLY WORRIED ABOUT
The Corporate Media has begun its 24/7 coverage of the Ebola virus. This is to let the casual viewer know there is no way he can escape; this is an important story.
And now, what was once an infection only discussed in relation to faraway Africa is now come to America, brought here by the powers that be for whatever reasons they’re giving.
A reader sent in this headline/link along with the question: “Is this the beginning of the end?” That is not a bad question. Since Ebola is a “pestilence” (disease), we wondered “What does the Bible say about end times pestilence?”
“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.“
This passage in Revelation is similar to Ezekiel 14:21 when God specifies his “four sore judgments” as “the sword, the famine, the noisome beast and the pestilence.”
For thus saith the Lord God; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast?
The events in Revelation 6:8 involving the killing of a fourth of the world’s population take place after world war and famine have already begun [Rev 6:4 and Rev 6:5-6].
So any outbreak of Ebola in the USA if it occurred independently of the other prophetic signs wouldn’t have any special prophetic meaning. Of course, the doomsayers will tell readers differently. But then, this writer isn’t selling anything.
HOWEVER, there are a few observations about Ebola in the USA which can be made.
1- The voluntary transit of Ebola patients into the USA–which is contrary to the normal procedures of how health officials treat patients with communicable diseases–seems to have gotten Americans’ attention. This story has been driven by the media circus. Why is this?
2- This patient transit likely will have many discussing Ebola and the ramifications of the patient transit to Atlanta. Is it safe? Why are they doing it? This is crazy!?! Is this the beginning of the end? Americans will–and already are–holding a national discussion about Ebola and the wisdom of moving Ebola patients into the USA. This planting of Ebola into the national consciousness seems to be behind the patient movement. Now: why would such a discussion be desired?
3- In 1996, Tom Clancy published a novel, Executive Orders. The novel told the story (narrative) of a group of Islamic terrorists from the Middle East (originating in Iran) who isolated, cultured and weaponized Ebola virus. If memory serves, the terrorists came to America and released the Ebola at a national sales convention in Minneapolis. The travelers then went back to their various homes, spreading the virus throughout America.
While that is certainly an interesting tale, what makes it especially interesting is the American president instituted martial law as a way of combating the Ebola. In the novel, Americans were generally supportive of the martial law because they are so scared of the Ebola spreading.
4- So is the 24/7 coverage of Ebola, the previous heavy media coverage of Ebola in Africa, and the bringing of Ebola patients voluntarily to Atlanta–all of which have sparked discussions across the USA–ways of introducing a fear of Ebola in Americans? And might that fear come in handy at some time in the future? And might that fear make it easier to announce martial law?
The answers to these questions involve speculation. Speculation which is probably best left to those Americans involved in the current discussion.
What does the Bible says about the current Ebola anxiety?
Again, not much about Ebola (pestilence).
Mark 13:8 speaks of “troubles” before the main events of the end times commence. Luke 21:9 mentions “commotions.” But that word means “instability, state of confusion”–in short, anarchy or chaos. Which one supposes could mean the chaos of an Ebola pandemic. But again, that is speculation.
Which leads to one last observation.
WHAT AMERICANS ARE REALLY WORRIED ABOUT
Whenever there is a event which sets Americans talking of world war, widespread pestilence, chaos or financial collapse, people run to see what the Bible has to say about it. The number of Google searches for such terms explode. People are worried that they will be caught unawares, not ready to “meet their maker.”
That is an unfortunate state of affairs–and a totally unnecessary one.
Americans may be specifically worried about Ebola. But what most are really worried about is not being right with God if Ebola would suddenly strike.
