‘So, What ELSE is Happening Today???’ Israel’s latest coronavirus peak: 5,500 (5, 5) patients in a single day. Israel screened more than 55,000 (5, 5) people on Tuesday; 10% (5+5) tested positive. Over 500 (5) in serious condition. Restrictions on traveling more than 500 (5) meters from one’s home. All FIVES (5). ‘The numbers don’t lie.’

Foreshadow Now, ‘Season of the End Times’:

Blog note. Jesus indicated that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up to the time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be identified as the ‘season of the times’ due to the ferociousness of these events. They would be occurring in greater intensity, severity, frequency, size, duration, scope … just like the pains that a woman experiences in labor the farther along she is in the labor process. We are in the ‘season of the times’ that comes just before the seven (7) year Tribulation/Great Tribulation period

… And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11).


… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)


… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)


… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)

Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied Eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor.

Future, during the seven (7) year tribulation;

Revelation 6:7-8 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8 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.

(‘fourth part’ = 25% = *7.7 billion x .25 = 1.93 billion people) *estimated earth population as of March 2020.

Two days before the country prepares for lockdown, Israel hit another coronavirus peak: 5,523 new patients diagnosed in a single day. The Health Ministry called on hospitals to open additional coronavirus wards if they reach 80% capacity in their existing units.

The infection rate on Wednesday stood at close to 10%, meaning that almost one in every 10 people who was tested for coronavirus in the last 24 hours tested positive. It is an even more striking number, when one considers that on Tuesday, Israel tested more people in one day than ever before: 57,165.

According to a report by the National Security Council, which also came out on Wednesday, the most significant increase in cases is among youth aged 14-19, likely a result of schools resuming on September 1.

The government decided to close schools a day earlier than planned this week because of the increase in infection.

There was a total of 535 people in serious condition, including 138 who were intubated. The death toll rose as well, reaching 1,147.

About 1% to 2% of cases become serious, so there could be over a hundred more such cases among yesterday’s numbers.

The Health Ministry has asked hospitals to prepare to treat these new ill patients by opening up new coronavirus wards when their existing ones start to fill up. However, the government has not offered any funding to some of the hospitals who will need to carry out this task.

“The government hospitals have an order to set up a ward and there is a budget there,” Prof. Ofer Merin, Director General of Shaare Zedek Medical Center said in a meeting of the Knesset State Audit Committee on Wednesday. “On the other hand, the private hospitals in Jerusalem, where there is high morbidity, are in financial difficulties – and when there is no money, it does not work.”

He said he was at the point of potentially laying off staff or not being able to pay suppliers.

“The state loses billions of shekels from the quarantine, but there is no money for the coronavirus department,” he said.

ACROSS THE country, hospitals are reporting overcrowding and are raising red flags that the high morbidity rate cannot go on much longer. Rambam Medical Center in the northern part of the country was forced to transfer 25 coronavirus patients to Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer on Wednesday.

And, at the same time, many are questioning whether a closure like the one expected to start Friday at 2 p.m. will even be effective.

“The closure is really not an effective solution,” said Prof. Zeev Rotstein, head of Hadassah Medical Center on Wednesday. He was also speaking at the audit committee meeting. “We close up the healthy and sick together,” which could cause even greater outbreaks.

Others argued that the closure would wreak havoc on people’s mental health.

The Union of Public Health Physicians called on the Knesset not to approve the restriction on traveling more than 500 meters from one’s home. They argued that such a directive causes physical and mental damage to the public.

“Health is a state of physical, mental and social well-being and not just the absence of disease,” the union argued. “The battle against coronavirus is complex and requires balance.”

They also argued that with all of the exceptions to the restriction it will be near impossible for the police to enforce them.

Finally, the Health Ministry released numbers at the Knesset that showed an increase in the number of people who committed suicide between January and September 2020 in comparison to the two years prior. This year, some 207 – though this is not an exact figure – were brought to the Institute of Forensic Medicine on suspicion of suicide, versus 191 in 2019 and 196 in 2018.

However, the data also showed a decrease in the number of people who were referred to emergency rooms following a suicide attempt this year versus in the two years prior.

“I have no doubt that the coronavirus crisis is causing mental distress on the citizens of Israel,” said MK Tzachi Hanegbi, who was providing the information to Yesh Atid MK Orna Barbivai on Wednesday. Hangebi was filling in for Health Minister Yuli Edelstein, who is in isolation.

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).

True Church / Bride of Christ Spared from God’s Wrath:

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”

Romans 12:19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Romans 8:35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Jeremiah 30:7. Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
