PESTILENCE is a Biblical word meaning disease or plague. The term ‘pestilence’ is rooted in the Latin word pestis based on the Latin verb pestare, meaning ‘to grind or pound’ (certainly disease can wear you down). In fact, the word ‘pestle’ once used by pharmacists is also based on ‘pestare’.Before the invention and convenience of electric grinders, an ancient apothecary (pharmacist) would use this stone or marble instrument to pound and grind ingredients to a fine powder or paste within a stoneware bowl called a ‘mortar’ (interesting how the word mortar sounds like mortal, isn’t it?).The Hebrew word translated as pestilence is deber, a masculine noun referring to disease or plague. Some believe that the mystical word Abracadabra is derived from a combination of ha-brachah, Hebrew for ‘the blessing’ or in magic rites “the curse”, and deber meaning ‘pestilence’.Is it a coincidence that peste, mortar, and deber all relate to death, pharmacology, and magic?Revelation 9:20-21 tells us this:
And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
The Greek word translated ‘sorceries’ is pharmakeia, a feminine noun upon which our modern word ‘pharmacy’ is based. Starting to see a connection?A search through the King James translation of the Bible will turn up 49 occurrences for ‘pestilence’ (that word count includes the plural form). Often the word follows, ‘sword’, and ‘famine’. Note that in Revelation 6, e find four horsemen released in the breaking of the first four seals. These four riders represent a False Christ, War, Famine, and Pestilence/Death. Clearly, we should take seriously all verses that inlude ‘pestilence’ for these verses indicate God’s judgment upon humanity — Sword, Famine, and Pestilence.But are such 21st illnessess created by God or simply permitted by God? Evidence strongly suggests a human hand behind the new ‘drug-resistant’, ‘mutant’ disease forms. Could there be a dark agenda at work in such ‘pharmakeia’, such ‘sorceries’? Is there a ‘Plan’ to reduce world population by 90%? Could pathogens be genetically programmed to strike only certain groups? Is Big Pharma merely profiting from emergent pathogens, or is the industry’s involvement deeper, more sinister?Only time will tell, but in the meantime, you might want to take stock of your medicine cabinet. Depending on the winds, you might find yourself depending on it.
