Is God taking revenge on the bats for starting coronavirus?
Adi Moskowitz took to Facebook to post what he called “lots of dead bats” he discovered near the Gan Leumi Park in Ramat Gan on Saturday.
The ‘dead bat plague’ was also corroborated several miles away by a resident in the Pardes Katz neighborhood of Bnei Brak who caught the lifeless creature on video.
Many of the bats are young and show no signs of trauma. “The phenomenon is extremely rare” explains Nora Lifshitz, founder of the Israeli Bat Society in an exclusive interview with Breaking Israel News. The only explanation Lifshitz can offer is that it was the result of the cold weather of the weekend storm. However she did admit that it was just a theory and that it’s a phenomenon she’s never heard of before.
Others are blaming recently installed 5-G technology.
Animal Die-Offs in Prophecy
This recent occurrence is a small example of a much larger phenomenon that is prophesied to appear as part of the all-encompassing experience at the end-of-days.
I will sweep away man and beast; I will sweep away the birds of the sky And the fish of the sea. I will make the wicked stumble, And I will destroy mankind From the face of the earth —declares Hashem. Zephaniah 1:3
For that, the earth is withered: Everything that dwells on it languishes— Beasts of the field and birds of the sky— Even the fish of the sea perish. Hosea 4:3
Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman director of Ohr Chadash Torah Institute believes that natural phenomenon like these connect the end-of-times with creation and act as signposts about man’s role in relation to nature.
“Man is part of nature so Moshiach will necessarily include nature and be manifest in nature,” Rabbi Trugman told Breaking Israel News. “None of these natural occurrences happen in a vacuum. We think we exist in a sanitized technological reality but we live in a natural world. Man has a huge impact on nature, and this impact has been growing in the last hundred years. If we lose track of our connection with nature, it will come back and bite us.”
“We are required to connect to nature as part of our relationship with Hashem,” Rabbi Trugman said. There are more extinctions, more fires. These are a sign of the times. To fix our relationship with God, everything will have to come back into balance.”
The rabbi’s assessment is entirely accurate. A list of mass animal deaths published on End-Times Prophecy was quite shocking, including billions of bees in South America, countless cases of massive fish deaths, hundreds of dolphins and whales, turtles, and all manner of wildlife.
Rabbi Trugman emphasized that even though these die-offs seemed daunting, it was essential the people understood that divine salvation for men was intrinsically connected to the saving of wildlife. The rabbi quoted a verse in Psalms that expressed salvation coming to man and beast together.
Your beneficence is like the high mountains; Your justice like the great deep; man and beast You deliver, Hashem Psalms 36:7
“Everything is holistically connected through God. If we see birds falling out of the sky, we should understand that if the environment gets too much out of kilter then the whole world is in danger of falling apart.”
