Humans, with their ingenious efforts, have diligently sought cures for these plagues spending thousands of hours and millions in currencies, of various countries, developing vaccines and drugs to either cure the diseases or at least slow their progress. In spite of humans’ efforts to eradicate these deadly plagues or slow their progression among the earth’s population more plagues develop or mutate negating humans’ efforts to stop the death, suffering, and grief. There is a way to stop these plagues and it has been known for thousands of years.
In the latter part of 2019 and the beginning of the year 2020, according to the Gregorian calendar, a great and mighty plague struck the nations of the earth killing many thousands of the earth’s population. It was believed to have its origin in the nation of China and followed other plagues that had taken the lives of thousands of the earth’s peoples. Just a few of these plagues were the bubonic plague, HIV plague, Spanish plague, and other plagues named Sars, Ebola along with others which killed multiple thousands of the people of earth in just the last 700 years of man’s known existence on earth. Most of these plagues can be attributed to some action, on the part of humans, that resulted in much agony, suffering, and death caused grief on the part of loved ones and families of those who died and suffered.
58 If you do not carefully follow all the words of this law, which are written in this book, and do not revere this glorious and awesome name — the Lord your God — 59 the Lord will send fearful plagues on you and your descendants, harsh and prolonged disasters, and severe and lingering illnesses. 60 He will bring upon you all the diseases of Egypt that you dreaded, and they will cling to you. 61 The Lord will also bring on you every kind of sickness and disaster not recorded in this Book of the Law, until you are destroyed. 62 You who were as numerous as the stars in the sky will be left but few in number, because you did not obey the Lord your God.
These words are the words of the Mighty Creator of all things, including the universe, the earth, all things on and in the earth. It is certainly correct to state most humans do not read or understand the meaning of these words and the consequences that result when the Creators word are not heeded. Notice, the verses above taken from the English Bible and based on the Hebrew Scriptures, written thousands of years ago, are telling someone they must obey the laws of the great and mighty Creator or their descendants will suffer harsh and prolonged disasters including disease and sickness.
That’s not all or even the worst of not heeding the words of the almighty Creator.
61 The Lord will also bring on you every kind of sickness and disaster not recorded in this Book of the Law until you are destroyed. 62 You who were as numerous as the stars in the sky will be left but few in number, because you did not obey the Lord your God.
Humankind has certainly experienced many lingering sicknesses and harsh disasters throughout recorded history. Nations have fought wars against one another, disruptive natural disasters have occurred causing thousands of injuries and deaths to earth’s inhabitant’s earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, and wars have been killing humans throughout the history of humankind. It can be theorized that natural disasters are not the result of people’s actions, however, there is growing awareness that at least some of the actions of people can result in weather changes, and many are beginning to understand that people’s actions does result in damage to the earth. Examples are overusing the land with farming practices that don’t let the land rest until it’s nonproductive, over-farming such as occurred in America during the 1900s that caused unprecedented dust storms as the earth’s topsoil was dried and blown away causing lives to be taken, resulting in mass migration. There are plenty of other examples of how humans have caused damage to the environment causing much suffering and death., just observe the polluted atmosphere and the extensive damage to people’s lungs as only one prime example.
There can be no real denial that devastating wars are caused by the actions of humans and even though millions have been injured or killed in wars they do not stop. There is war or hostile actions taken by one or more countries against other nations. The lesson here is while the terrible results of war are clearly evident they not only don’t cease they get larger and more destructive as time goes on. The last world war, World War II, introduced nuclear weapons for the very first time. The destruction and death from just two bombs were enough to cause Japan, a nation that likely would have fought to the last man understood they would be annihilated quickly if they didn’t cease and desist their hostile actions against the United States, the most powerful nation in the history of the World.
At this point, it is necessary to understand the United States is comprised of a large portion of the descendants of a man described in the scriptures as the ancestral father of the tribes of Israel. Most of the world’s population does not read or understand what the Bible really articulates. The reasons are complex and numerous, but basically people have been misled by false teachers, of the scriptures, for thousands of years. This should be no secret, the scriptures mostly given by the Creator provides numerous warnings about this very subject.
2 Peter 2:1-3
2 But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them — bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2 Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3 In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
The most dangerous example is that people have been taught they no longer need to keeps the Creators laws; even though the scriptures themselves proclaim this is a false teaching in both the Old and New Testaments, of the scriptures, written in the English versions of the Bible.
The history of the tribes of Israel, now scattered around the world, who’s ancestry is largely unknown, is provided in the Scriptures is a collection of cataloged books that comprise the English Bible, which is the most widely held book in the history of mankind. Many believe that the Scriptures that make up the Bible are the Words of a superior being they incorrectly call God. Persons who are viewed as having knowledge about the Scriptures, commonly known as Rabbis, Priests, Ministers, Theologians, and religious Scholars hold positions of esteem in the eyes of much of the world’s population.
These esteemed persons distribute their messages throughout the nations by word of mouth, broadcasting, over the airwaves, print, and various other techniques. Multiple millions of people now and in the past have heard the teachings of these esteemed, and in many instances, highly regarded teachers. There is, however, a huge problem. Most of the highly esteemed teachers, of the scriptures, are not correct. They have taught for centuries doctrines the Scriptures do not support.
One important example of false teachings of teachers of The Scriptures is that the laws of the Creator no longer need to be obeyed. This very false teaching has resulted in the deaths of millions of people. The Creator, who’s one and only true name is, Yahweh warned the ancestors of many of the people, scattered throughout the world today, that if they did not obey his laws, throughout the generations, they would get sick and die.
In the book of Leviticus, chapter 18 Yahweh instructed the Israelites, recently freed from Egyptian slavery, to follow very detailed sexual relations throughout their lives.
In the book of Exodus Chapter 20, Yahweh gave the Israelites through Moses, regulations they must obey to live their lives in peace and harmony. These rules have become known as the Ten Commandments throughout the nations or the best-known laws given by the Creator.
In the book, Leviticus chapters 16,23,24, and 25 Yahweh gave the Israelites instructions on how they were to observe his Sabbaths or Holy Days.
Leviticus chapter 13 are instructions from Yahweh to the Israelites on how to deal with infectious diseases.
Yahweh instructs Israel which animals of the Earth can be eaten and which animals are unclean and not to be eaten in Leviticus chapter 11. These rules are widely disobeyed by the people of Earth, the most notable of unclean meats is the Pig. Bacon, ham, pork chops, and sausage are several of the most eaten unclean meats eaten throughout the nations are revered by many as a must in their diets. Then they wonder why they die from circulatory diseases at relatively young ages.
Leviticus chapter 15 provides Yahweh’s instructions to the Israelites on hygiene. If these rules had been followed by people over the centuries millions of persons would not have died needlessly while still relatively young. Likely, the most historic event that would not have occurred if Yahweh’s hygiene laws were followed would be the bubonic plague that took the lives, needlessly, Estimates of deaths from the Black Death or bubonic plague claim as much of one-third of the world’s population was killed by the plague beginning circa 1350 as it spread around the world. The World Health Organization reports there are thousands of bubonic plague deaths occurring annually around the world currently.
Can people avoid the coming plagues?
Populations around the world today are intrinsically linked so unless someone is secluded somewhere remote there will always be the chance of infection from disease. While the scriptures do claim there will be life eternal for some it does not claim there will be eternal physical life. In fact, just the opposite is what the Scriptures assert.
10 The length of our days is seventy years —
or eighty, if we have the strength;
yet their span is but trouble and sorrow,
for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days will be a hundred and twenty years.”
14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
Even with modern medical techniques and medicines humans usually pass into the death of their physical bodies not much longer than seventy years. Some will live a few years more, but all physical bodies will pass away and return to the earthly material from which they were made.
19 By the sweat of your brow
you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
and to dust you will return.”
Some people are destined to die twice.
The lake of fire is the second death. 15 If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
Most people do not understand the second death proclaimed in the Scriptures. It is accurate to declare that most popular religious organizations teach very little about the second death and the implications, explained in the Scriptures, of just how and why a second death occurs. The Scriptures do tell who will experience a second death, but that
occurrence is beyond the scope of this writing except to identify those who will experience the second death:
The lake of fire is the second death. 15 If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
There are many Scriptures that explain how a person can get their name into the book of life, which are explained in other articles by YNCA which can be found at yncainfo.org for no cost to read or download, please avail yourself.
How to avoid the second death.
Many people don’t believe there is an all-powerful spirit Creator. They don’t know his name or the name of His Son who the Scriptures proclaim has risen from death to eternal life. They don’t read the Scriptures, believe them or even begin to understand them although many think they know the Scriptures. However, the truth is unless they obey the Creator Yahweh’s rules and laws which are in writing and have been for thousands of years, their names will not be in the Book of life nor will they be in the first resurrection.
6 Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years
Make no mistake; because of people’s sinful selfish actions all people will die at least once, and their lives will be short. How do we know, because Yahweh warned the Israelites, who still exist today unaware of their identity, and Yahweh made the Israelites his witnesses for the peoples of the world to observe and read about? When the Israelites obeyed Yahweh they thrived, when they disobeyed they were driven from their promised land, received torture, were made slaves, got sick, and experienced shortened lives, same as today.
The great Creator of the universe, the earth and all things in them, has written a book with rules that Humans have free will to accept and follow or reject. Each person will be responsible for their own decisions and will enjoy or suffer the consequences of their actions. If people don’t read the Scriptures, “Book of Life” their name is not likely to be written in said book, really too bad for them.
What is really disappointing people will, by their actions, be setting an example for the children they love to follow, tragic!
