Are the Prophecies About Coronavirus True? Anat Schneider

Many are turning to Scripture and Jewish prophecy to address the present pandemic. All kinds of messages are being passed around the Internet concerning Bible prophecies and Jewish sages who foresaw the coronavirus pandemic. Are these real? What should we believe?

Here is an example of a Hebrew post that has around Israel and the world:

“In Isaiah 26:20 it is written, ‘Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut your doors behind you. Hide yourselves a little while until the wrath has passed.’”

This fascinating prophecy written by Isaiah more than 2,600 years ago grabbed my attention. But does it actually relate to the coronavirus and the worldwide regulations for physical distancing and staying home?

The post goes on to reference a commentary related to the Isaiah prophecy written some 1,400 years ago by a French Jewish philosopher named Gersomides. Translated into English it reads:

“In the footsteps of the Messiah, on Passover Eve, there is no king in Israel (interesting given that right now Israel’s government is in limbo).

“And the scourge came out of Ashkenaz (many conclude that Ashkenaz is China).

“And it’s letters add up to a crown (Corona is a crown in Latin).

“And it goes out and hits Israel’s enemies and kings of Persia and Medi fall under it (Iran has been hit badly with the virus).
