Coronavirus and the Spirit of Amalek

Updated: Jun 29, 2020

This article is from Pastor Debbie’s brother Denny and his wife Carol.  It is a long read, but it is very insightful with a great prayer at the end. –Pastor Dan

So how are you all doing with your quarantine? This is truly unprecedented and has many of us digging in the scriptures regarding the end times and any other biblical applications to what’s going on. Well, one key to this epidemic is that it has threatened our weakest and most vulnerable. The best spiritual correlation to our current crisis in scripture, is with the spirit of Amalek. Amalek threatens to take out nations and their first target is aimed at the weak and vulnerable. The Law of Parallels To understand how the spiritual realm relates to the physical realm, we need to look at Apostle Paul’s Law of Parallels. Paul teaches us an important principle that whatever happens in the physical, will be a forerunner for what will happen in the spiritual. It is called the Law of Parallels. Many people think events happen in the spiritual first and then in the natural, but it is actually the opposite. G-d establishes it in the physical first and then in the spiritual. In the Lord’s Prayer it mentions, “On earth as it is in heaven.” Earth is mentioned first, then the heavenly realm proceeds after. Another example is the comparison of Adam and Yahshua. Adam represents the first (physical) man and Yahshua represents the second (spiritual) man. 1 Corinthians 15:45-49, “In fact, the Tanakh says so: Adam, the first man, became a living human being; but the last “Adam” has become a life-giving Spirit. Note, however, that the body from the Spirit did not come first, but the ordinary human one; the one from the Spirit comes afterwards. The first man is from the earth, made of dust; the second man is from heaven. People born of dust are like the man of dust, and people born from heaven are like the man from heaven; and just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, so also we will bear the image of the man from heaven.” We can use this Law of Parallels and apply it to scripture. People and events in OT represent what happens in the natural. The NT tends to emphasize on the spiritual. You cannot have one without the other. The OT gives us physical representations on how things work in the spiritual realm. Take Jezebel for example. We have all heard of the “Jezebel Spirit.” Jezebel was a real person, yet her evil character traits live on in the spiritual realm. We can apply this Law of Parallel with many people or events that happened in the OT. The Amalek spirit comes from the Amalekites. They were descendants of Esau and their tribe resided south of the land of Canaan. Once the Israelites were freed from Egypt and journeying across the desert, the Amalekites were the first tribe to attack them. Israel was not vigilant in protecting their people. As they traveled, they let their weak straggle behind. In military formation, you never place your weakest in the front or in the back of the caravan, you position them in the middle. The stronger ones should be at the front, to forsee any danger ahead, and protect the back to prevent ambushes such as this. The Amaleks approached from behind and attacked the weakest and disabled. It caused great confusion and chaos. The Israelites felt blindsided. Their lack of preparedness allowed the Amaleks to further penetrate the caravan. Moses had to step in and call on G-d. The Israelites had many enemies, but the tribe of Amalek gained special attention in  G-d’s eyes. G-d commanded the Israelites to destroy the entire nation of Amalekites. The Israelites were unable to do so. The Amalek spirit reappeared though the evil Haman, from the book of Esther. Haman tried to destroy the Jews and Esther was able to intervene. The verse below is traditionally read during Purim, so that the Jews won’t forget the Amalek spirit. Deuteronomy 25;17-19, “Remember what ‘Amalek did to you on the road as you were coming out of Egypt, how he met you by the road, attacked those in the rear, those who were exhausted and straggling behind when you were tired and weary. He did not fear God. Therefore, when Adonai your God has given you rest from all your surrounding enemies in the land Adonai your God is giving you as your inheritance to possess, you are to blot out all memory of ‘Amalek from under heaven. Don’t forget! Do you find it interesting that the Coronavirus started spreading during the time of Purim? Israel took notice. The Coronavirus seemingly came out of nowhere and it attacked our most vulnerable. Why does Amalek want to attack us? Origins of Amalek G-d made a two-fold promise to Abraham.

  • He promised that He would make Abraham a great nation from which kings would descend.

  • He also promised the inheritance of land in Canaan.

Abraham, Isaac & Jacob Abraham’s firstborn (Ishmael) was denied the inheritance and it was given to Isaac.

  • Ishmael’s race is now the Muslim nation.

  • The Muslim race was denied the inheritance (land)

  • Muslim’s desire is to wipe out Israel

Isaac’s firstborn (Esau) was denied the inheritance and it was given to Jacob.

  • Esau wanted to kill Jacob, so Jacob had to flee

  • Esau’s descendent was Amalek.

  • Amalek wants to destroy the Jews and take the inheritance (land)

  • Amalek’s first attempt was after Israel left Egypt

  • Another attempt was through Haman, a descendent of Esau

What is Amalek’s objective? The Amalek spirit wants nations destroyed and their inheritance (the land) taken. How is China Related to Amalek? We need to give China some attention here because the Coronavirus originated from there. China released the Amalek spirit. How does that affect us? Overall, Americans aren’t informed about all the dealings we have with China. We aren’t aware of all trade agreements we have with China. The media prefers to keep our focus on trivial matters. Our relationship with China could make another article, so we ask you to do your due diligence and research. China, overall, has been unethical with America on many levels; our trade deals, the American debt they assumed, and our dependence on their pharmaceuticals to name a few. All in all, we have been in bondage to China. Past presidents have done very little to change our position with China and over the years we have been very dependent on them. We are at their mercy. America just broke their bondage with China, when our President made new trade deals. Our relationship to China is similar to Israel’s relationship with Egypt. Once Israel broke free from their bondage to Egypt, along came the Amalekites. Once we broke from China’s unfair trades and tried to gain some economic independence, along came the Coronavirus. The Coronavirus has attacked us unexpectedly. It attacked our weakest and has penetrated deep into our economy. This is a true Amalek spirit. China wants to take down our nation and wipe out our inheritance (land). Know That We Have Been Attacked, What Do We Do? We need to revisit our spiritual positioning as a nation. Are we leaving ourselves exposed to enemy attack? Is our country (our spiritual land) in jeopardy? It could be. We have become a post-Christian nation. We need to pray our nation wakes up. Like Moses cried out to G-d for help, our nation needs to as well. If we don’t adjust our spiritual military stance, we can expect more attacks. On a personal level, have you come through a time of everything looking okay until one day you are shocked to find the enemy right at your front door? That all hell is breaking loose, and you have been infiltrated from all sides? You have been sabotaged and undermined by those living and working close to you? Which man are you going to be, in regards to what’s happening in the world on a physical and spiritual level? Are you going to be that spiritual man, be like Moses and raise your arms to the Father? Exodus 17:11-13 (NIV), “As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset.  So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword.” We have three levels going on here in the battle: The fighter (Joshua) the intercessor (Moses) and those supporting the intercessor (Aaron and Hur). All three levels had to depend on the other and all three had to rely on G-d. It would seem that all believers should be taking time out, to reflect on how they responded and what spiritual messages we can discern from the events of the past few months. Paul’s Physical and Spiritual Connection. Again Paul says any action in the physical domain is connected to the spiritual domain. This is true for both negative and positive actions/events. We are warned that Amalek will rise up in every generation. Exodus 17:16, “and said, “Because their hand was against the throne of Yah, (G-d) Adonai will fight ‘Amalek generation after generation.” The spirit of Amalek can be found in every generation. Amalek comes to tackle the weak and the defenseless. Saul was told to destroy Amalek. Why does G-d instruct this? Because the Amalekites will perpetually attack from generation to generation unless they are completely wiped out. 1 Samuel 15:18, “Now Adonai sent you on a mission and told you, ‘Go and completely destroy ‘Amalek, those sinners; keep making war on them until they have been exterminated.” Unfortunately, the Amalek spirit was not exterminated and it keeps passing through from generation to generation, attacking the weak. What is our spiritual recourse? To surrender to the Father and walk in His ways. Psalm 74:20, “Look to the covenant, for the land’s dark places are full of the haunts of violence.” People are being (haunted) and in a panic of running out of supplies with threats of (violence) in some cases. This type of attack has not happened before in America’s history. China concealed (dark places) their man-made virus and released it into the world. Deuteronomy 25:17-18, “Remember what ‘Amalek did to you on the road as you were coming out of Egypt, how he met you by the road, attacked those in the rear, those who were exhausted and straggling behind when you were tired and weary. He did not fear G-d.” How do we interpret the Coronavirus  in the spiritual? What must you and I do today? The kingdom of darkness will rise up in our generation. This spirit comes upon you quickly and will always attack from behind, targeted the weakest link, just like Coronavirus is doing. Through these struggles and trials, what are you praying? When we go to war with G-d at our side, we must go in the same way Moses did and we must fight the same way Joshua did. Raising the arms does not mean victory but surrender. When we surrender completely, the presence of G-d can move to help us battle Coronavirus and Amalek. How Do We Fight the Spirit over the Coronavirus! In Ex 17:8-16, Moses stood at the top of the hill with G-d’s staff. Joshua did as Moses told him and fought with Amalek. It’s when Moses raised his hand that he noticed Israel prevailed. He kept his arms up. Adonai later said to Moses to write this in a book to be remembered. We must never forget that Amelek existence and memory must never continue on but must be exterminated time and time again. Ex 17:15-16, “Moshe built an altar, called it Adonai Nissi [Adonai is my banner/miracle], and said, ‘Because their hand was against the throne of Yah, (G-d) Adonai will fight Amalek generation after generation.’” What does it mean for G-d to be our banner today? G-d is the banner of all who believe. His banner is for His followers who trust Him and have the same faith Moses, Aaron, Hur, and Joshua had. Let us raise an altar (Jehovah Nissi) over our family, over America, and abroad. Let the banner of G-d overtake the Amalek Coronavirus and we will make a statement to this spirit. We will be the Aarons and the Hurs, holding up Moses’ (our president’s) hands as we will intercede. Our president needs intercession through this turbulent time in history. The spirit of Amalek operates by breaking down and destroying the faith of people in casting doubt. This evil spirit resists and apposes G-d. We can ask G-d to replace the plans of the Amalek spirit with His plans that He has for us and our country. How’s your faith? Have you been doubting in fear that this will pass? Let us replace our doubt and fear with the Holy Spirit of G-d. The Amalek spirit seeks to harass and ravage the weak and sickly. We must come against the spirit of Amalek and this Coronavirus in warfare praise and prayer, lifting the banner of G-d over this nation and beyond. We need to be like Joshua who was willing to stand up and fight, and like Moses by standing in faith. Let us intercede and crush the plans and intentions of this spirit over our families and this country. 1 Sam. 15:3, “Now go and attack ‘Amalek, and completely destroy everything they have. Don’t spare them, but kill men and women, children and babies, cows and sheep, camels and donkeys.’” In Exodus 17:13 Thus Y’hoshua (Joshua) defeated ‘Amalek, putting their people to the sword.” Let us take the sword (the Word) of G-d in prayer to Amalek Coronavirus in Yahshua’s name. Moses on the hill symbolizes intercessory prayer. This teaches us the importance of going into battle with G-d. Psalm 20:7, “Now I know that Adonai gives victory to his anointed one — he will answer him from his holy heaven with mighty victories by his right hand.” Every Joshua needs a Moses and every Moses needs an Aaron and Hur. G-d is our strength in the time of battle, and through our faith in Him and Yahshua, we already have the victory over this Amalek spirit, in Yahshua’s name Prayer Father, I ask You to break all un-GODLY heart, mind, body, and spirit connections that have been established between me and the Amalek spirit. I reject the Coronavirus and the fear of it on all levels. In the most powerful name of King Messiah Yahshua, I proclaim this attachment to be null and void and I refuse to live under its power and authority of fear any longer. I declare it broken! Father, during this time where Coronavirus is rampant, I raise my hands and submit myself to You. I commit my body, my mind, my spirit, my desires and my emotions to your Spirit, in Yahshua’s name. I ask You Father to please destroy all generational covenants with Amalek, known and unknown. I claim every legal right that the virus is using to control me, in King Yahshua’s name. I renounce and destroy every platform that the Amalek Coronavirus established in my life; every time it tried to transfer and attach unholy and ungodly things to me – Please Father, cleanse me with the fire of Your Word! We know that the spirit of Amalek will be found in every generation. We know that Amalek comes to tackle the weak and the defenseless. You have asked that we make war with this spirit until it is completely exterminated. We make war, Father! We lift up our hands and intercede for those that are afflicted. Drive this abomination out of our land! We commit all power and glory to You! I thank You G-d, for allowing me to have the keys of Your Kingdom, which are keys of spiritual authority. What I bind is bound and what I loose is loosed. I take the keys of Your Kingdom and unlock the shackles this evil spirit has clamped on me. I will be weak and defenseless no more. Free me physically and spiritually, in Yahshua’s name. Father, I declare that this virus will not attach or transfer to me. All connections with this evil spirit will be severed. I bind this evil plague and send it to Your feet, in Yahshua’s name. I commit myself totally to You. Pour Your grace over me and keep me protected. Please keep my heart, mind, and body holy, Father! I also declare, by the authority of  Yahshua Messiah’s name, that the Amalek Coronavirus has no attachment on my children either. All body ties are hereby cut by the power of the sword of G-d. With the power of Messiah’s blood, I blot out the plans and schemes against the Amalek Coronavirus for me and my family. I go to war with You by my side, Father. You will defeat the Amalek spirit over our land. Your message will remain upon my heart. Your Ark will accompany me, which is Your presence. Help me contend and battle Amalek, in Yahshua’s name. Today, I raise over my family altar “Jehovah Nissi – The LORD is my banner.” The Amalek spirit will not destroy my faith and cast doubt in me. I lift up “the rod of G-d” over my family and myself and ask G-d to place a spiritual stone under my arm when I get tired in my intercession. I also ask other prayer warriors to interceder with me however long it takes to defeat the Amalek Coronavirus, in Yahshua’s name. I resist people who are operating in this spirit; bringing fear and doubt upon me. I refuse the enemy’s harassments. It will not ravage what G-d has given me. I apply the blood of Yahshua over my heart. It will not be a fraudulent heart or a heart of stone, but a merciful one. It will not be a calloused, uncircumcised heart, but a tender circumcised heart. It will be a heart that discerns whenever I sense the Amalek spirit is close. It will not be an unruly self-willed or a dead heart, but a humble and a willing heart. It will not be a heart entrapped and ensnared with this wretched spirit. It will be a heart of wisdom, power and might. Amen & Shalom, Eliyahu
