Covid-19, Vaccinations and Scripture

While Jesus did say pestilences will become increasing during the last days, Covid-19 is primarily a socio-economic plague. This could be why we cannot find any direct prophecies for a global pandemic like Covid-19. If we search Scriptures for prophecies based on patterns due to the socio-economic impact of Covid-19, we can almost be certain that this Covid-19 is a precursor to many prophecies about to happen.

Mark of the Beast

He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Rev 13:16-17

Vaccines for Covid-19 are certainly not the mark of the beast. While governments imposing significant restrictions on people movements temporarily seems to have a noble cause for reducing Covid-19 infections, forcing trial/emergency-approved vaccinations for the uninfected are certainly a precursor for the mark of the beast.

Infliction/Deaths

Revelation is filled with selective infliction as in Rev 9:4-6 for those who don’t have the seal of God on their foreheads or massive deaths as in Rev 6:8 for the pale horse. How does this relate to Covid-19?

But while the meat [was] still between their teeth, before it was chewed, the wrath of the LORD was aroused against the people, and the LORD struck the people with a very great plague. So he called the name of that place Kibroth Hattaavah, because there they buried the people who had yielded to craving.

Num 11:33-34

Selective plagues are common throughout the Scriptures like the death of the first-born Egyptians. The LORD killed all who craved meat while the meat was on the mouth. This shows the plague came via quail and all who ate it, died.

Covid-19 seems to be harmless for most people, but there is an ongoing massive global phase III clinical trials of vaccinations on nearly all people around the world with no long term effects known. While this is not prophesied in Scriptures, it certainly does seem to be a precursor.

Conclusion

I will say of the LORD, [“He is] my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust. Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler [And] from the perilous pestilence.

Psalms 91:2-3

Let me paraphrase Psalms 20:7. Some trust in vaccines, and some in medicines, but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. God never asked ancient Israel not to have horses or chariots in their army, but He did ask to seek Him (Isaiah 31:1). Jesus too was not against medicines or vaccines (Matthew 9:12) but who do we truly trust (2 Chronicles 16:12)? In these last days, we must always keep watch, seek Him and be prepared.
