Indeed the scriptures cannot be broken! The Bible many centuries ago warned about an impending disaster and destruction from the North. And in the last couple of weeks, there have been reports of mysterious deaths in many parts of the North. Could what is happening in the North be a fulfillment of Bible prophecy as recorded in Jeremiah 1:14?
Many initially linked these deaths to the coronavirus pandemic but the governments of the Northern States where these deaths are occurring have repeatedly told all that care to listen that the cause of the deaths though unknown, has nothing to do with Covid19.
The Bible however seem very clear in its warning about an impending calamity breaking out of the North:
“Out of the north calamity shall break forth on all the inhabitants of the land” – Jeremiah 1: 14 NKJV
Now, we know that in recent times and for a while too, the North has been plagued with issue of insecurity and terrorism due to the activities of killer Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram. Of these two evils, the calamity of the Killer Fulani herdsmen made some in-roads into other parts of the Country.
There incursion both physically and politically was and it is still being resisted by Nigerians from the middle belt down to the South of the Country. The rest of the Country is able to resist because we can see the herdsmen and can also confront the government of the day.
But how do you resist an unseen and unknown calamity? Though Covid19 is new, we at least know what precautions to take in order to reduce probability of contracting the disease.
As it is right now, no one knows the cause of this mysterious deaths and so, no one can tell categorically what to do in order to avoid being a victim of this calamity. This disaster is easier to be unleashed on all the inhabitants of the land than herdsmen.

The Bible however issued a warning and a way to protect ourselves from the impending disaster:
“Set up the standard toward Zion. Take refuge! Do not delay! For I will bring disaster from the north, and great destruction” – Jeremiah 4: 6 NKJV
And in Jeremiah chapter 6 the Bible again repeated the warning and the call to avoid this imminent disaster from the north
“O you children of Benjamin, Gather yourselves to flee from the midst of Jerusalem! Blow the trumpet in Tekoa, And set up a signal-fire in Beth Haccerem; For disaster appears out of the north, And great destruction” – Jeremiah 6:1 NKJV
Let he who has ears hear what the Spirit of God is saying. The North have already started spreading this calamity across the Country.
Have you not noticed the recent movement of Almajiris from the North to many states in the South? This calls for serious vigilance. We all have to be on the alert and set up a standard against this calamity.
With the lockdown and restriction order on Interstate movement, the Almajiris from the North are able to find their ways into other states of the Country. Who are the people moving them from the North to the South?
The Northern governors are busy passing them around and asking the Almajiris to return to their home state. They are rejecting their own people!
So is the agenda therefore to “ship” them enmass to the South so that the “out of the north calamity shall break forth on all the inhabitants of the land”? It would seem that is the plan or how else do one explain the ease with which the Almajiris find their way to various parts of the South?
Unfortunately, we have no way of suspecting or knowing anyone with the strange ailment that is causing the mysterious deaths in the North.
But luckily, some of our State governments have been vigilant. Trucks have been intercepted and lots of Almajiris hidden inside the trucks that are bringing agricultural foods and livestock arrested in the process.
Communities at the C.D.A level are daily calling on residents especially the youths to be more vigilant and to report any strange face especially a strange northerner in the Community. Some have warned residents to avoid patronizing commercial motor bike operators from the North in bid to safeguard against the contracting and spread of this ailment causing the mysterious deaths in the north.
So, let us gather ourselves and “blow the trumpet in our communities, Local governments and States” and “set up the signal-fire in our streets”, so that we can prevent and protect ourselves from the “disaster that appears out of the north”.
The Scriptures cannot be broken. Selah!
