Last night’s news claimed that 425 people in China had died from the coronavirus outbreak so far. They also showed new hospitals being built or tents erected to deal with the sick. Would they really need new hospitals with just a few thousand people infected? It seems to me that the sick and dead are being underreported.
It is hard to know exactly how many people have been infected, but some estimates go into the hundreds of thousands. More and more cities are being quarantined and the people being told to stay in their homes. These are cities bigger than New York City, by the way. Can you imagine what would happen if everyone in New York City were told to stay home from work for the next month? Can you imagine students being told that classes were cancelled? Can you imagine the stock market being shut down?
All of that is happening in many large cities in China today. If this spreads further, it would have the potential to collapse the entire economy in China, regardless of the number of casualties. Just the fear of infection alone can bring the entire population into quarantine and stop all production.
Here is a “fear” site which last week reported 156,000 deaths so far. I have no idea how accurate this might be, but always be motivated by faith, never by fear. What strikes me most is how sudden people can drop dead. Pictures of the dead in streets, at the grocery stores, in the trains, all seem to indicate “sudden death.”
The coronavirus appears to be overwhelming the medical system in China, which argues for a much more widespread disease than is being reported.
If such conditions truly exist in China, and if the coronavirus is spreading to the rest of the world, it could be a fatal mistake to depend upon the government or the medical system. Much like the lessons learned when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans some years ago, we really do need to take responsibility for our own protection, rather than get caught up in the panic of the crowds trying to find an overcrowded hospital.
If you have done your own research and learning ahead of time, you know that there are many natural antibiotics that work much better than the drugs from Big Pharma. Superbugs are already immune to many of the man-made antibiotics. Superbugs are survivalists. The use of antibiotics sounded like a good idea years ago, but today the bugs are winning the war of annihilation.
Before the age of man-made drugs, most people used colloidal silver to kill bacteria. Bacteria cannot mutate to defend against colloidal silver. Whereas drugs poison bacteria, silver simply plugs up their breathing apparatus and suffocates the bacteria. You can find colloidal silver or even better, nano silver, online or at a health food store.
There are also essential oils that are highly effective in killing bacteria. Back in the days of the Black Plague, the communities where they distilled essential oils did not suffer casualties. Some of them got rich, in fact, by putting essential oils on their bodies so that they could rob the houses where whole families had died. The most effective antibacterial essential oils are oregano, thyme, and cinnamon. I can’t make any particular recommendation, nor would I prescribe any kind of medication for anyone, but I can say that I have had all of the above in the house for many years for such emergencies.
It is always good to be prepared ahead of time for emergencies. That way you don’t have to fear the future. The vast majority of people simply do not prepare ahead of time, and so they tend to get caught up in the sudden panic. When panics hit, it is too late to prepare.
In fact, this is one of the main purposes of prophecy and of hearing God’s voice in general. He tells us things ahead of time so that we are not caught unprepared. I don’t know how bad this coronavirus is going to get, or how widespread it will become, but it is always good to “prepare for the worst and hope for the best.”
Above all, be spiritually prepared and aware.
