Covid Lockdown is the fulfilment of the end-time prophecy in the 1964 song, “The sound of silence.”  How can Revelation 13:12-18 be the fulfilment of this prophecy?

The prophecy of the song, The Sound of Silence, fully materialized in a time when the world was in a most explosive state.  People who never heard of one another were anxiously waiting together for the global collapse of civilization and the resultant eruption of a worldwide zombie apocalypse.  Universal marshal law and a one-world government coup.  Mass intern or FEMA camps for the nonconforming, once the initial incapacitating shock had passed.  Instead, the global lockdown to “stop the spread” of a minute organism suddenly clamped down.  Everyone was immediately under covert home arrest; isolated and alone. The streets and public places were empty.  The world has never witnessed such an instant abandonment of everything that meant “life” to billions of people.  Instead of facing the barrels of guns, billions heard for the first time about life-saving sanitizing and the constant washing of hands for thirty counts at a time.  Every face was frantically covered with a mask.  Economies came to a near standstill.

A significant turn of events began to emerge during the lockdown. I am not against technology.  I mean, it would be hilarious to saddle a horse and engage the mad morning traffic on the highway to get to the office and our computers on time.  However, let us not be deceived.  Technological advances are wonderful, but the same can devastate humanity in an instant.  Let us never forget the two atomic bombs America dropped on Japan.  So, while use of the internet was already widespread, nearly everyone in possession of a device that can access the internet, began to work and communicate from home. The rest silently starved mainly on an emotional level in their homes.  Few dared to complain.  The sound of silence and a strange persona of ‘peace’ fell on a once bustling, competitive, fighting, interacting, violently protesting world.  Most of humanity drifted away into the technological world of “life” on the internet. 


The song, The Sound of Silence, was a real end-time prophecy that describes our time now, after the lockdown, as follows, “Hello darkness, my old friend. [Suddenly, even what we first viewed as the darkness of the internet, (as it is a good thing that is so greatly misused by so many people,) became everyone’s friend.]  I've come to talk with you again. [And we could not say enough over the internet.]  Because a vision softly creeping. [For how long was the power of the internet creeping up on humanity?]  Left its seeds while I was sleeping.  [It came so subtly we did not notice how it infected us to shift our attention from reality to technology that can easily control our lives.] And the vision that was planted in my brain still remains, within the sound of silence.  [We cannot imagine how much mind control people  exert through the internet.]  

In restless dreams, I walked alone. [With information at the tip of our fingers, we do not consult other people like before; yet we remain lonely and dissatisfied.]  On narrow streets of cobblestone. [YouTube and other Channels and Rooms that lead us every which way, but without our understanding of how complex they really are.]  'Neath the halo of a street lamp, [artificial hope or light that seem helpful; even angelic,] I turned my collar to the cold and damp, [we tried to buffer the isolation, fear, and uncertainty by filling the voids with the internet.] When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light that split the night, [the lifelike Image of technology began to fully focus our attention on our devises and internet content. Our technology-based lives seemed to split or break the ‘night’ of fear, confusion, helplessness, and hopelessness.]  And touched the sound of silence.  [Technology seems to subdue the human longing in the absence of human presence, but can easily unlock an isolated matrix of deception.]

And in the naked light, [hope without substance,] I saw ten thousand people, maybe more. [There are already more than 37 million YouTube channels, excluding Facebook, Tiktok, Instagram, Twitter, Whatsapp…] People talking without speaking.  [Everyone with a ‘device’ and internet access is speaking without saying a word in the presence of anyone.] People hearing without listeningPeople writing songs that voices never shared. [Recordings and robotic voices are already behind most of the very fluent internet speeches and lovely songs we see and hear on the internet.]  No one dared disturb the Sound of Silence. [People hate to be disturbed while on the internet.  They mostly discard personal interaction and the reading of the Bible and other books to ‘test’ and understand what they see and hear in videos, etcetera. Reading and other non-internet interactions with people and life in general, have become cumbersome.  Children are glued to computer and television screens and cell phones; they do not play games like hide-and-seek anymore.  They can tell you anything about everything and do not need the input of their parents and grandparents anymore.  Human interaction became dispensable.] 

The prophecy continues, “’Fools’ said I, ‘You do not know, silence like a cancer grow. [It is unbelievable how the lack of human interaction, misinformation, deception, and immorality of all kinds proliferate over the internet!] Hear my words that I might teach you. Take my arms that I might reach you.’  But my words, like silent raindrops fell. And echoed in the wells of silence.  [The voices that warn and teach reality, God’s True Word and Ways, and Moral Ethics, are easily buried under the billions of “sound of silence” videos, etcetera, which often speak Satan’s words directly into the minds of people.] 

Then, the prophecy reaches its crescendo, “And the people bowed and prayed to the neon god they made. [This is a clear description of ‘internet addiction.’ Revelation 13:8, “All who dwell on the earth will worship him…  He deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs… telling them to make AN IMAGE to the beast… He was granted power to give BREATH TO THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST THAT IT WOULD BOTH SPEAK AND CAUSE AS MANY AS WOULD NOT WORSHIP THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST TO BE [emotionally, spiritually, even physically] KILLED.]

And the sign flashed out its warning; hear the words that it was forming. [All the thumbnails on videos, advertisements, and other internet content, were designed to “grab people.”  Not merely their attention, but their thoughts and beliefs!  And of course, the money in their pockets!]  And the sign said, ‘The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls, [so everyone can hear and see;] tenement halls, [clusters of people still banding together.] And whisper in the Sound of Silence!” 

People advertise on their Facebook and other “walls” and “niches” as far as possible.  People do anything on the internet to make a living from home.  Of course this is a good thing, but simultaneously, scams and terrible destructions also work through the internet.  Still, there are many people who reach people through the internet with God’s Truth; with real emotional and even physical support and other sincere assistance, but increasingly, as the prophecy warns, most of these are becoming mere “whispers in the Sound of Silence!” 



Before and especially during the lockdown, everyone who had a cell phone or computer knowingly or unwittingly began to fulfil the prophetic song, “Sound of Silence,” which was given to the world 56 years ago. The manifestation of the Sound of Silence came as a clandestine shockwave that engulfed all the nations of the world.  It was not global martial law, but the threat of a deadly illness that flattened humanity to the floor. Christians shouted, “666, 666! The mark of the beast!  Where’s the rapture? Where’s the rapture?”  Other believers shouted, “Where’s the global chaos that will trigger the mark of the beast that will bring ultimate control on earth?”  Many whispered, “It is a scam of the antichrist.  A deception to sneak the mark of the beast into the DNA of everyone on the planet; turning us into reptilians.”  Others shook their heads and loudly declared, “The virus is real.  Look at all the fatalities.  Get the jab.  Save humanity!”  Others believed, “We need to burn the masks and get exposure to gain herd-immunity!”  A few believers said, “No, be calm and look at the truth about the great tribulation, the so-called rapture, and Jesus’ once-off return on the clouds. Jesus explained it all in perfect sequence in Matthew 24:26-31.  Revelation 13:14-18 warns us about the implant of the mark of the beast, and God warned us to “Do not be dismayed at the signs of [the end times.] For the unbelievers are dismayed at them,” (Jeremiah 10:1-2.)  However, the voices of the last mentioned were quieted by the growing bewilderment that engulfed the global Sound of Silence. 

Physically and emotionally paralyzed with fear and confusion, people were spiritually and mentally “running to and fro,” as more important prophecies of our time became a reality.  It has been unfolding before our eyes while we were blinded by the extremely false light of the “Israeli [Christian Zionist/Messianic Judaism] Timeline” and its numerous Illuminati-manufactured dogmas

In fact, God’s Truth is clearly written in the conclusion of His ‘last of the end-time’ prophecy that stretches over Daniel Chapters 7-12.  It reads, “Shut up the words [of this prophecy] and seal the book UNTIL THE TIME OF THE END, when [panicking people] will run to and fro AND KNOWLEDGE WILL INCREASE,” (Dan. 12:4.)   

Great distortions of  this prophecy, (which is also described in an amalgamated form in Revelation 13:1-18,) were taught to Jesus’ believers and they believed it, because no one could really interpret Daniel’s prophecy that stretches over those six chapters, until it slowly began to materialize through recent history to culminate in our day. To think that in 1900, during Britain’s war in South Africa, both sides fought on horseback and Britain monitored battles from hot air balloons overhead.  Fourteen years later, World War 1 erupted with armored tanks, submarines, chemical warfare, and aeroplanes!  During World War 2, stealth technology took form!   And today, there is no limit to what people are doing with technology on every sphere of earth and even in outer space, (Daniel 12:4!) 


Whenever we use the internet, keep in mind that it is The Image of the Beast that resonates The Sound of Silence.  It can easily embody an empty world of deception that endangers even our eternal lives in heaven.  So, let us not be engulfed by it.  Let us never build our lives on it in the sense that we allow it to control our minds and human relationships, for then we actually “bow and pray to the neon god they made!” 

Malachi 3:1-7, 16 states, “[God sent His Son Jesus; God in the flesh of a man,] the Messenger of His New Covenant, in Whom you must delight… For who will [be able to] endure The Day of His return?  Who can stand when He appears?  For He is like a refiner’s fire and like launderer’s soap.  He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver… that [all true believers] may offer to the Lord an offering, [which is themselves in totality: Rom. 12:1-2,] in righteousness [through His perfect atonement for them...] Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another.  And the Lord listened and heard them.  So a Book of Remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord and who meditate on His Name…”  Malachi 4:11, “For The Day is coming, burning like an oven.  And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble.  And The Day which is coming will burn them up…”
