Coronacrisis overview

15-16 weeks of the corona crisis

The development of vaccines and drugs continues at an incredible pace. Virtually every week, a national pharmaceutical company reports on its progress in developing both the vaccine and the drug.The reason is the specificity of the coronavirus: relatively rapid and mass infection.


The United States and Israel are under special political attack. China has gained great influence in various organizations around the world. A clearer example is the WHO – World Health Organization. They were able to influence its board in such a way that the dangers of the coronavirus were hidden, but it caused irreparable damage to the whole world.Now they want to influence the International Criminal Court to convict US soldiers defending democracy in different parts of the world. At the same time, there are people on the board of this organization who have been active in several African dictatorial governments.Pray constantly for the United States as you pray for Israel.


How is the Last Judgment Day different from other judgment days over people?First, many people will not be prosecuted during their earthly lives.Secondly, by receiving a certain punishment, it is possible to get out of the locked place after serving your time and continue to enjoy greater freedom.The only exceptions are higher penalties, e.g. 100 years and lifetime, the death penalty or the age of the person.


However, the Doomsday Court will judge all people without exception. All people who have not truly believed in Christ during their earthly life will be punished by life imprisonment, and the punishment will take place in hell, and later it will continue with fire in the burning sulfur lake.


Hebrews 9:27 Just as men die once, and after that is judgment …


How is it possible? For those who do not believe in the Bible, here is one example of its possibility.
“Death is just an illusion, and life goes on indefinitely,” says Robert Lanza, a US biologist and philosopher of science who was recently ranked among the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine.


Most scholars consider the claims about the possibility of afterlife to be absurd, or at least unprovable. However, Robert Lanza, a renowned US professor who has studied cloning and stem cells for decades, argues that death is only an illusion created by our consciousness. Lanzal has solid proof that life goes on after death – the answer lies in quantum physics, mediates The Independent.


Why do we have to keep repeating God’s Word to ourselves and others? 1 Peter 2:24 … by His stripes you were healed


Let’s see: pain and disease carry information and say very convincingly that there are few chanceses and that is it, ignorance, end, death.That is why we need to rub in the Scriptures – the Word of God, so we know it as a multiplication table, so even while we sleep in 50 years you will not make a mistake! How did we get it? We beat it  into our head, as they say! That’s the only way, never give up!


And then the evil spirits will tell you, well, you see, it doesn’t work, pointless, stop, let your hands drop. In other words: give up!


A school was established in Jerusalem to train (Kohanim) young men to serve the priests of the Third Temple. This is another step closer to the return of the Messiah.


Voices are being heard from Israel and petitions have even been sent to rename Tiberias to Trumperias. Because, according to Prime Minister Netnanyahu, Israel has never had a better friend than President Trump.The name in Tiberias, however, comes from the names of Emperor Nero, Tiberius Claudius, who drove the Jews out of Rome.
Recently, the Secretary-General of the Arab League made a shocking statement. If Israel extends its sovereignty to the territories of Judea and Samaria, this spark could ignite a great war. It would be something like if the Estonian government wanted to establish its own laws in Võru County or e.g. for some reason in Ida – Virumaa. These lands are historically associated with Israel, and God promised them to Abraham.


“From farm to fork” is the EU’s new catering program until 2050. To reduce global warming and the planet’s resources, it has been decided to start producing protein from insects. Growing them requires significantly less energy and other resources. They are killed by a gradual drop in air temperature. It means that they die painlessly. They are then roasted and ground into flour that is added anywhere, even to energy bars.Considering that this protein will be added to animal feed and the slope of chickens and fishes, there will be practically no more kosher meat in the EU, and so on.


However, the Bible allows you to eat only one type of insect, i.e. the grasshopper. It can also be called a Bible protein.

Leviticus 11:23 But all other flying insects that have four legs you are to regard as unclean. 24 “‘You will make yourselves unclean by these;


Phil 3:20 But our citizenship is in heaven, and we look forward to the Savior who is in heaven, the Lord Jesus Christ.
But we look forward to our salvation!Praise Him always!Blessed be Israel, peace be upon thee, O Jerusalem.

14-15 weeks of the corona crisis

Crisis? Now we can say that a little fright. Condolences to all the relatives of the ones who passed away. Many thanks to the medical staff who risked their lives. Thanks to all the prayers. Thanks to all the honest people who went to the hospitals when the symptoms appeared.


But most of all, thank God for stopping us and allowing us to review our lives, warning that nothing depends on who we are or what we have!


1 Tim 6:7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.

EU borders are open for travelling. The depth and losses of the economic recession are yet unknown. America is fermenting. People return to their former habits and continue to sin with double enthusiasm. I cannot imagine what God felt, for He knew in advance that even if a third of creation was destroyed, people would still not turn from their evil ways.

SpongeBob has been introduced by Nikeleoden as a gay man. However, the creator of the series denies this, claiming that Bob has no sex. Also, not having sex is a rebellion against God … the world is going crazy and already completely … Western society has brought up a whole generation of people allowing them to watch cartoon characters who do not belong to any sex and now they are reaping the bitter fruits of it.

Jeremiah 31:11 For the Lord will deliver Jacob and redeem them from the hand of those stronger than they. They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion; they will rejoice in the bounty of the Lord—the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, the young of the flocks and herds. They will be like a well-watered garden, and they will sorrow no more.


The more positive side of the corona virus.Jews return to Israel from all over the world and especially from the United States in masses. According to the latest forecast, Israel is expecting 90,000 Jews to return by the end of 2021. Aliyah is caused by economic instability, riots and growing anti-Semitism.


Nu 8:19 From among all the Israelites, I have given the Levites as gifts to Aaron and his sons to do the work at the tent of meeting on behalf of the Israelites and to make atonement for them so that no plague will strike the Israelites when they go near the sanctuary.”

Enter the Holy Place through the blood of Jesus!


The closer to God, the deeper fellowship with the Holy Spirit, the less chance there is of getting sick in any disease! The less likely you are to be hit by any kind of trouble!
God has made everything perfect. God’s light destroys darkness.


In the darkness – the prince of darkness has not had a chance of victory  over God since the beginning.


Run under the protective wings of God! Run to His defensive fortress! Hide behind His shield! Just believe it! Declare it!


Stand on it in spite of everything! Praise Him, for victory is yours!

Psalm 18:1,2 I love you, Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,my shield [b] and the horn [c] of my salvation, my stronghold..


Praise the Lord! Always pray for Israel!

13-14 weeks of the corona crisis

The virus gradually subsides. The peculiarity of the coronavirus is that each subsequent infected person suffers more easily from corona disease, if the disease has not been severe. When a person has a severe illness, it means that the virus has defeated the immune system and the patient is infecting others with a stronger virus. However, if the body fights and the disease progresses lightly, then the patient infects the next person by so-called “half force”. Therefore, the virus subsides. This epidemic has nothing to do with the seasons, as we have seen in the examples of Italy and Portugal. If the virus is in a person, it will not be affected in any way by sunlight. Only the Lord God and the human immune system can affect it.


At Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, this verse is sung in a variety of languages, with staff offering healing blessings in their native languages, including Hebrew, English, Russian, French, Arabic, and Spanish.


Numbers 12:13 So Moses cried out to the Lord, “Please, God, heal her!”


Jeremiah 17:14 Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for You are the one I praise


In Detroit, thousands of police officers fell to their knees in front of protesters as a sign that they did not want violence. The local police chief erred against the police protocol, because in such a “posture” it is not possible to perform any task effectively. It is also ironic that the local black police chief did so in front of protesters, many of whom were white.

No violent uprisal has ever produced the desired result. In the end, only people suffer. But how many blacks murder whites, simply because of the color of their skin, the press does not dare to make even a sound at the moment.

Esther 3:2 All the royal officials at the king’s gate knelt down and paid honor to Haman, for the king had commanded this concerning him. But Mordecai would not kneel down or pay him honor.Satan is cunning as a blowfly.He manipulates, deceives and turns things upside down.He is looking for ways for you to bow down before anyone else except the Only Living God.


1 Pe 5:8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls aroundlike a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

If you believe in the prophecies, then America will lose its importance and this can be seen for the last decades. Some argue that America is never mentioned in the book of Revelation and that America will be destroyed by fire. During the riots, one of New York’s best-known rabbis announced that it was time for the Jews to leave the United States and return to their homeland.

He mentioned that this was the only country where Jews would not be accused of Jewish racism or persecuted.

However, many Jews ignore these calls. Their children are there, the grandchildren do not even speak Hebrew. Their friends are there. Their businesses are there. Their organizations are there. Someone compared this time to the Holocaust and the ‘crystal night’ when many Jews stayed in put for the same reasons and later lost their lives. He talked to the Jews who survived the ‘crystal night’ and asked why you didn’t leave, and they replied that my factory is here, my family, etc …

And these riots and the most liberal cities, New York and Los Angeles, have the greatest turmoil and riots, and corona killed the most there.

And during the recent turmoil, Jewish emigration from America has increased by 50%.

Our Prayer: Most High, help the Jews to emigrate to their true homeland, in the name of Jesus!

Always pray for Israel!

11-12 weeks of the corona crisis

 This year, Shavuot will begin for Jews on Thursday, but Christian Pentecost will be on Sunday.  The reason is the difference between the calendars.  Although at the time of the Acts  it was the same day as the feast of Shavuot.

 Pentecost – the most wonderful holiday.  It is one of the three festivals of the Bible when the Jews had to go up to the temple in Jerusalem.  It is also known as the Feast of Harvest, the sacred gift of the Torah, King David was born that day.  The book of Ruth is read in many synagogues because she embraced Judaism wholeheartedly, and Ruth and Boaz were the grandparents of King David.

 And it was at that time 2000 years ago when Holy Spirit intervened in the last – third scene of world history, which will culminate in the return of the Messiah!  At that time, God put the power of HS at our disposal and it is wonderful!  And on that day, 120 were baptized with the Holy Spirit, and 100% spoke all “other tongues”.  On this day, God also gave us the work we have to do so far.

 Acts 2: 1-4 And when the day of Pentecost was now accomplishing, they were all together in one place.  And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.  And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it fell upon them one by one.  And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

 Throughout the history of the world, God has intervened in human affairs mainly through people on earth.  The prophets, the Son of Man, the apostles, and you.  But soon, at the end of the book of Revelation, the King of Kings will personally intervene with his millions of angels, radically changing the world order.  And this is exactly the kind of intervention that the Jews wanted to happen 2000 years ago when they were under Roman rule.

 Jn 1: 14,15 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of them, saying, Behold, the Lord shall come to judge all men with his holy tens of thousands, and to punish all the wicked for all their ungodly deeds which they have done in wickedness, and for all  for the words which the ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

 The press would call it an ‘alien war’, an ‘UFO attack’, an outward invasion of civilization, etc … But in reality, these millions are believers in their glorious resurrection bodies.  And Jesus himself, returning triumphantly on the white horse, destroys the antichrist and the false prophet.  He, the King of Kings, will rule in Jerusalem for 1,000 years.

 Revelation 20: 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection.  The second death has no power over them, but they become priests of God and Christ and reign with him for 1,000 years.

 What’s going on right now?
 The world is still confused about tomorrow.  But as the proverb says ‘only a grave heals a humpbacked’.  Why?  Turkish President Erdogan announced that the Temple Mount is a red line for Muslims.


 Palestinian terrorists continue their killings and shootings!  Police continues to catch drunk drivers behind the wheel.  Drug trafficking continues and prices have risen due to quarantine.  People continue to have fun, ignoring God’s warnings!

 The prominent Jewish rabbi (Knessin) claims that the corona crisis is nearing the return of the Messiah.  Many people no longer rely on medicine because there is no special help in this situation and they have begun to delve into the Torah more and more.  Various Internet polls claim that the turn to God increased exponentially in March and April.  In other words, people began to pray and seek help from the Most High.

 A little bit of Jewish theology.


 According to Jewish theology, satan is an angel, or servant, and his job is to entice the Jews to (1) sin, (2) accuse the Jews, and (3) bring death to them.  Sounds familiar?


 They also claim that when the Messiah appears, satan loses his job.  Why?  Because all his activities throughout human history are directed against the appearance of the Messiah.
 Therefore, the fake antichrist and the false prophet.  Satan may know the Bible, but he does not fully understand it like any other creature.  This was stated by the Apostle Paul 2000. years ago , when he wrote that if satan had understood God’s plan, he had not  crucified the second Adam, the Lord of Glory!  P.A.

 The first Adam had a special status in the Garden of Eden.  He was different from animals because he was not allowed to eat from the tree.  He had a restriction – a ban.


 When he received his punishment and was expelled from the Garden of Eden, he was worried about his position outside the Garden.  But when he heard that he had to work until “sweating” and that the snake was allowed stomach was even allowed to eat the dust od the ground, he calmed down, realizing that God still loves him (paraphrased), Rabbi Berger.


 How is man different from animals?  Because he has prohibitions – restrictions, i.e. that God cares about man.

 Psalm 149: 3,4 Let them praise Him by the dance of his name; sing praises to Him with timbrels and lyrics.  For the LORD delighteth in His people; He buildeth the plain with salvation.

 Always pray for Israel!

10-11 weeks of the coronacrisis

The state of emergency has ended in Estonia. Corona disease is receding. It is not yet clear whether this is  “a trench war” before a new invasion and what this will entail.


As for the end of the end times in the Bible, everything is clearer than clear. The gospel must return to Jerusalem. Everybody all over the world prays for that.


Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. (NKJV)

This week was the anniversary of Jerusalem. Congratulations! But we continue to pray for the perfect will of God to happen in our homeland. Christ will soon return and reign there for 1,000 years. Glory to the Most High.

Ez 37:22 and I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king over them all; they shall no longer be two nations, nor shall they ever be divided into two kingdoms again. (NKJV)

There is a fierce political struggle going on in Israel over allowing Jews to the Temple Mount. There are voices urging leaders to use the ‘window of opportunity’ because Donald Trump may not be re-elected in the November US presidential election. The President of the United States supports both this and the annexation of the Jordanian territories by Israel. In other words, to take back the land that historically belonged to Israel.


There are also open political voices in Israel which urge to destroy Iran with its nuclear programs.If we believe in the prophecies that a new superpower in the form of Iraq will emerge in the Middle East, then it is quite realistic.Others argue that Russia will conquer Turkey and that not exactly a new coalition but a new union will emerge from that, and China, Iran, Russia together with conquered Turkey, Syria, etc. have a goal to seize Jerusalem.


Ez 38:3-5 and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; (NKJV)

But that all is a speculation now, the future will show. And after all, that’s not the point.


Christians must live as if the rapture will take place tonight!For David can only be a king in Jerusalem if the returned Jesus the King of kings, reigns there!!! Hallelujah!

Ezekiel 37:24 “David My servant shall be king over them, and they shall all have one shepherd; they shall also walk in My judgments and observe My statutes, and do them. (NKJV)


The fact, however is, that a grand finale will take place in that region, and that is quite clear! But for us as believers in Messiah it means this that His wedding is coming.Our wedding garments must be without the slightest stain. This is the Messiah´s command given to us through ap Paul.


I had a small car incident this week. The car suddenly stopped in the middle of the road. Eventually, however, it turned out that a 2-3 centimeter long sensor completely stopped the car which weighs 3 tons. Conclusion: the little things what we consider to be insignificant will eventually stop us from being fiery, physically healthy, and faithful Christians. And millions will discover one day that they have no invitation to the wedding.


Rev 3:21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. (NKJV)
But we are going intothe  battle again because:

2 Cor 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, (NKJV) 

Psalm 149:6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand, (NKJV)  May you glory in the Lord!

Always pray for Israel!

6-7 week mosaic of the coronary crisis

The corona crisis continues, although light is already visible at the end of the tunnel. It is a matter of what the next phase of this crisis will be in the world. Various theories are offered, from the disappearance of handshakes to the climbing and the unified world order.


Many bloody dictators have dreamed of governing the whole world, but in the end they have ‘failed’. Against the background of history, this seemed impossible, as they all ‘failed’ until a virus with a larger particle, the micron, placed  the entire world under quarantine.


At the same time, it is not the worst disease when compared to the annual flu and other diseases – accidents in which thousands of times more people die.


But if we believe in God, we can see the powerlessness of men and satan to prevent God from carrying out His apocalyptic plan!

The current situation is to some extent comparable to Calvary in the Bible. Jesus’ disciples did not want the Lord to be crucified, but most of the people did. The Jerusalem format is transferable to the whole world.
Paul claims that if satan and his gang had known the consequences of the crucifixion, they would not have crucified the Lord Jesus. (Satan was completely ashamed at Calvary and publicly humiliated). Yet no creature was able to understand and stop God’s special plan of redemption!


Col. 2:15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.


People can do a lot, but noone can stop the time and times that God has set.

No matter how badly you want for the time to go fast or slow, it is still in 24h format, it is morning and evening arrives. That which must come, it must come. And the whole world is entering the next scene of the coronary crisis.


Ps 47:9 The nobles of the nations assemble as the people of the God of Abraham, for the kings of the earth belong to God;

He is greatly exalted!


God continues vigorously. In the beginning, His plans are incomprehensible and unexpected to many. Your redemption is approaching!But by the stripes of Jesus you have been healed.The greater is He who is in you!

You are the Temple of the Holy Spirit!

Many virologists predict that the coronavirus will come back mutated.Many have suffered from the symptoms of the corona virus, but when a new wave comes, new restrictions will come again. This is exactly how the book of Revelation describes the near future of the world.One trouble passes and another comes!So get ready for that!


For years, I have been wondering why a good God has given such a long period of peace – since 1945? I think that people will be happy and get to know Him! But the opposite happened. Perverts rule and sin is praised upto the sky! With the fingers of both your hands, you can count rulers who consider God. Therefore, there is still ‘fire and tar.’

The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net. (Micah 7:2)

This week I came (virtually) across believers who  ‘sure as deathl’ claim that the Church as a whole must go through ‘the great tribulation.’ Most claim to have a definite revelation from the Spirit.

Behold, this is the way Jesus behaves and taught us to pray 2,000 years ago as follows:

And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. (Matthew 24:22-23)From this verse we see Jesus’ clear desire to save His people from trouble. He warns and declares  that He wants to save the believer! This Scripture is specific – for a specific time, but it can be used in all ages and in any situations! If so, pray like that!

However, many are ‘stuck’ in their thoughts that the whole Body of Christ is going through the ‘great tribulation’. Certainly part of the Church will go through the ‘great tribulation’. I think they are those who are lukewarm and lost today, and not only. Many argue that if they are not believers now, why should they suddenly become believers, etc! You know, in ‘good times’ it’s much harder to be a believer than in trouble. In trouble, all of a sudden everyone believes and prays to God.
If you want to believe that you, and you in particular, have to go through a ‘great tribulation’, then who forbids you! But are you sure you are able to do that? And I admonish you: do not draw personal revelations upon the whole of Christianity, I am sure you do not have authority from God for this!

But for those of us who believe in Matthew 24, the Wedding of the Lamb awaits us soon, to which the Lord Jesus will take us by the rapture – the resurrection! Yes, if we read carefully the verse of 1 Thessalonians 4:17, it is written that we can be with Him in heaven. What if He only comes to bring peace to earth at the end of the ‘great tribulation’? Why, then, should we suddenly go to heaven when He reigns for 1,000 years in Jerusalem? The puzzle in this does not go together.

Get ready for the wedding of the Lamb!

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (1 Cor 15:52)

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: (1 Thes 4:16)

Jesus is risen! He is our Passover Lamb! Happy Holidays!

There is still no limit to the coronavirus. In Estonia, the virus has not yet reached it`s a plateau.Unfortunately, the temporary altar was not placed and there was no sacrifice on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem! The Israeli government did not give a permission.


I wonder if there will be a second and third wave that is more deadly than this, then in order not to infect other people, they will place some chip under the skin so that they can be immune to the sickness and move or work in the public sector! Of course, this is a speculation, but if the economy collapses, you never know!


When the economic crisis comes to a greater extent than the expected, then it´s a reality that cash may disappear.The nations are uniting as during the Tower of Babel.There are already voices in the EU that we need a new Marshall Plan.


Certainly, with all this, the arrival of the Messiah is approaching rapidly.
but the angel said, “Don’t be so surprised. Aren’t you looking for Jesus, the Nazarene who was crucified? He isn’t here! He has come back to life! Look, that’s where his body was lying.  Mark 6:16

Jesus is risen!

The triumph of the coronavirus continues, although there are news of its quiet extinction.


In Israel, Orthodox rabbis order special – festive white clothes(in Hebrew glima) for themselves  to greet the Messiah.Christians should also keep their clothes of salvation free from blemishes and wrinkles, as ap. Peter wrote to us in his second letter. 2 Peter 3:14


These two words in the original text (flawless, impeccable, without wrinkles, without blemishes, etc.) in Greek is Aspilos, I emphasize the meaning of the first word here – it means to be psychologically balanced, that is, patient, calm, not irritated!And blameless, in Greek amometos, which means that no correction is needed.Let us pray that  for our children and loved ones and let us strive for it ourselves!


Here and there in the news we can hear that people heartily demand – a curfew to be established to protect the people. There are countries where you can only leave your home for an imperative reason for 2 hours a day and you are required to download the corresponding app to your phone and indicate in advance (10 options only) the reason why you left your place of residence. And it’s controlled by the police. This is definitely okay to stop the spread of the coronavirus. But where will this take us if next calamities should happen?


Rev 3:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads..


 Rabbis in Israel have submitted an appeal to the President of the United States and the Prime Minister of Israel for the temporary altar to be built to the Temple Mount and for the lamb sacrifice there for the first time in 2000 years.


They also claim that it stops the spread of the coronavirus. 


This is already something, I personally believe that the time is right near when the 3rd and last temple will be erected for the coming of the Messiah. Then we may soon begin to count the days when the world will be freed from Satan !!!
