BIN: “We are here on the Temple Mount, sending up a prayer for the healing of the entire world,” Rabbi Lipo said. “The Temple is the crown, just like tefillin on the head of a Jewish man.”
He then quoted the Prophet Isaiah who compared the Temple Mount to a crown.
In the days to come, The Mount of Hashem‘s House Shall stand firm above the mountains And tower above the hills; And all the nations Shall gaze on it with joy. Isaiah 2:2
“And ‘corona’ means, in every language, a crown,” Rabbi Lipo said. “The disease has come to remind us that the true crown of the world is missing. What will stop the coronavirus was taught to us by King David.”
And David built there a mizbayach to Hashem and sacrificed burnt offerings and offerings of well-being. Hashem responded to the plea for the land, and the plague against Yisrael was checked. II Samuel 24:24
Opinion: I’m not sure to what the coronavirus can be compared. The disease is not yet considered a pandemic and the accuracy of death tolls subject to much speculation, but some Bible believers an even non-Bible believers are talking apocalypse and end of the world.
Maybe it is because the world is closing in on the final days of this age. And just maybe it is an opportunity to share the gospel with those close to us who have so far rejected the pardon that Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross provides.
“For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul” Leviticus 17:11.
“And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission” Hebrews 9:22.
The price of salvation is paid in full – “TETELESTAI” John 19:30.
