G-d's Warning Through This Year's Torah Cycle on the Coronavirus and What Our Job Is To ALLEVIATE It
Think on this, in a few weeks we have a double Torah portion, we have Tazria and Metzorah. These two Torah portions are about quarantine! In these parshiot the priest visits the quarantined to see if they have gotten better and if they have they can come back into the fold. There is really something deep in this that I have been saying for over a month. Let me explain.
First of all what started the inflictions of Metzorah (leprosy)? It started with Myriam speaking against Moshe and Aharon. This is the concept of lashon hara (evil speech). Now, in Aramaic the word Milthe means “words/MANIFESTATIONS/instances/substances/Incantations”. We see this word used in it’s singular form, Miltha” in John as shown:
Beresheet atohi hwa Miltha (In the Beginning was the Word, Manifestation, Instance, Substance, Incantation) And that Miltha (Word/Manifestation) was with Alaha (G-d). And Alaha (G-d) was that Miltha (Word/Manifestation).
(John 1:1; LJANT)
Our words, brethren manifest. This is why the ancient Jewish sages said that when a person speaks their words are suspended in the cosmos and they affect someone somewhere. This is the cause for cancer, the cause for sickness and the cause of great joy and love. They manifest based on the Semitic languages given to us from HaShem to understand these premises.
The Torah states in Tazria and Metzorah that the physical affliction of leprosy is brought on by the spiritual condition known as “nega ta’arat” though the Torah continues to use the word leprosy through these parshiot sometimes nega tza’arat is translated as well as leprosy but it is the spiritual condition that allows it to manifest. It then starts to show physical signs known as Metzorah.
When the Metzorah is formed, they are taken out from the people and they are quarantined. This quarantine serves as a time of repentance for their condition which was brought on physically from the spiritual condition. Now, I have said, G-d brought the Coronavirus because we need to grow and we need correction this is why we are quarantined and isolated from the world right now in this lockdown. But the condition will not clear away until our high priest, Yeshua HaNotzri, checks to see if we are clean. We have chosen to prolong this quarantine through our spiritual condition. Yeshua is constantly checking on us to see if the lesions of the society have passed, they will pass when our spiritual condition is elevated. Right now, we have not gotten the memo.
If I had to take an educated guess, in the realization that the physical comes about from the spiritual and from the understanding of G-d’s Word. I would say that we will start to see society slowly start to open up the next day after these Torah portions are read and taught. The 26th of April of 2020 I think we will see some changes happening for the better because G-d’s people will start to get the message.
