Ebola - The Meaning

In Latin "e bola" translates to "the balls". A flagrum is also referred to as a scourge.

The Roman flogging or scourging that Jesus endured prior to being crucified normally consisted of 39 lashes, but could have been more (Mark 15:15; John 19:1). The whip that was used, called a "flagrum", consisted of braided leather thongs with metal balls and pieces of sharp bone woven into or intertwined with the braids. The balls added weight to the whip, causing deep bruising and contusions as the victim was struck. The pieces of bone served to cut into the flesh. As the beating continued, the resulting cuts were so severe that the skeletal muscles, underlying veins, sinews, and bowels of victims were exposed. This beating was so severe that at times victims would not survive it in order to go on to be crucified.

Is Humanity being subjected to the same symbolic death that Jesus suffered? With the exception of a very few, every political leader, banker, royal and CEO must be executed. They are killing us one by one.

Thank you,
