The classification of diseases and causes of death has been around since the 1700s. The U.S. got involved in the 1920s. The World Health Organization (WHO) got involved in 1946 and that became part of the UN on April 7, 1948.
ICD stands for International Classification of Diseases. E 978 is called the medical diagnosis code. It is an international classification for the cause of death.
E stands for Execution (by legal means). The number “9” refers to the ninth revision of the code. The ninth revision was in effect from late 1975 to Sept. 30, 2015.
E 978 means the deceased was legally executed and the cause of death was beheading or decapitation (probably by guillotine).
WHO officials thought they needed the E-code groupings because several Muslim nations and terrorist groups behead people on a regular basis.
ICD-10-CM E 978 means the International Classification of Diseases, the tenth revision of the Clinical Modification system, executed by beheading.
This tenth revision replaced the ninth revision and it went into effect on Oct. 1, 2015. It is still in effect.
This is the point: ICD 9 E 978 is now ICD-10-CM E 978. They are equivalent codes in a WHO international classification system. They mean the person was legally executed and it was probably on a guillotine.
The WHO uses these codes to compile global statistics on causes of death. Different causes of death (beheaded, electrocuted, hanged, gas chamber, firing squad, etc.). have different E-code numbers.
Guillotines are not used in the U.S. because each state (not the federal government) decides what form of execution the state wants to use.
In 1996, Georgia State Representative Doug Teper introduced a bill to replace Georgia’s electric chair with a guillotine. Mr. Teper argued that lethal injection and electrocution render the deceased’s organs unsuitable for transplantation, but decapitation leaves the organs intact so they can be harvested for use in others. As far as I know, his bill was never voted on.
But this is where it gets interesting. The Bible teaches that a world government is in mankind’s future. The UN has voted to establish a world government by 2030 and the WHO will be an agency in that UN world government.
The WHO keeps statistics on the cause of death, execution by beheading on a guillotine is an acceptable form of death (perhaps preferred for organ harvest), the Antichrist will rise to power over the UN world government, and he and his False Prophet will execute people by beheading (Rev. 20:4).
The U.S. will be one of the members of the coming world government. There are reports that Pres. Obama and the Dept. of Homeland Security are already calling for the U.S. to use the WHO international classification system. But regardless of how that comes out, the U.S. will be required to go by the UN rules when the world government is established.
Furthermore, the Antichrist and his False Prophet will execute millions of people. Many guillotines will be needed because the world already considers that to be an acceptable way to execute people.
And for years there have been reports and pictures on the Internet of coffins and guillotines at FEMA camps in the U.S. Some reports say the U.S. has already purchased and stored as many as 30,000 guillotines.
Finally, the Pre-Trib Rapture means the church won’t be here when the Antichrist and his false prophet start beheading millions.
But the fact that a world government is on the way and the UN WHO already has an E-code to classify legally beheaded people are more signs that the Rapture is getting close.
Let God be magnified; His Word is forever true.
