Scientists warn of mysterious and deadly new epidemic called Disease X that could kill millions around the world.
from article- “Disease X could even be man-made, rather than a fluke of nature. There are growing fears that the use and development of chemical and biological weapons are on the rise. In Syria's bloody civil war chemical bombs have been dropped on civilians on numerous occasions.
And closer to home, the police have confirmed that a nerve agent, probably created in a lab by state-sponsored scientists as a targeted weapon, was used to attack the former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury this week.
Last year North Korea is believed to have used the nerve agent VX to assassinate the half-brother of dictator Kim Jong-Un in an airport in a Malaysian airport.”
also- “Exactly 100 years ago the Spanish Flu outbreak swept around the world, killing about 100 million people around the world, more than the four years of the First World War which had only just finished.”
I cannot fathome how how bad the Great Tribulation will be. Whether you are in a small Bible study group, prayer group,etc. I believe we need to double our efforts and pray for those that will be left behind. Give them the ability to see the truth Lord and act upon it by accepting you as their salvation.
More than 220 cases of a breed of “nightmare bacteria” with new or rare antibiotic-resistant genes, have been found in 27 states, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a report released Tuesday.
The CDC has warned of the antibiotic-resistant bacteria for years, but these “nightmare bacteria” are “virtually untreatable” and capable of spreading genes that make them “impervious” to most antibiotics, Scientific American reported.
Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.” John 6:29
“The United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) warned that an infestation of desert locusts in Sudan and Eritrea is rapidly spreading along both sides of the Red Sea towards Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
According to an agency press release, heavy rains triggered two generations of breeding since October, leading to a substantial increase in the locust population.”
“Earlier this year, the insects evoked biblical times when they showed up at holy sites in Mecca, covering some areas in darkness and sparking a thunderstorm of hail and fire on social media.
“These locusts are normally present in low numbers in the desert and don’t cause a big problem. But following a large rainfall they can quickly multiply, eventually forming hopper bands or swarms of adults, composed of billions of individual locusts,”
From article - The CDC says the milder strain of influenza that had been nailing people from just after Thanksgiving through early February is now being replaced by a stronger, nastier strain. It’s one that makes people a lot sicker than the previous circulating bug.
The report from the CDC came out within the past few days, but I think those of us who work in emergency rooms, clinics, or offices have noticed something a little unusual over since mid-February. That is, people who were down for the count with fever, chills, coughing… and just a general position of being laid out on the stretcher or exam table when we went into examine them. Sicker than what we were used to.
...The main complications: pneumonia, out-of-control diabetes, uncontrolled asthma, heart attacks, and stroke (from the tremendous strain these diseases put on the body).
Now, things get worse.
This year’s flu season, which we were hoping would be mild and be drawing to a close early is now a shown a new, ugly face. It’s worse, and it’s going to be here for a while. The CDC is estimating we will now be dealing with this one until May. And at highest risk are young kids, even though all age groups are susceptible.

Sectarian fighting has complicated the medical response to the virus from foreign governments and groups like the World Health Organization (WHO) and Doctors Without Borders. Even worse, health workers have been attacked by anti-government rebels, with 85 either killed or wounded since January, an official at the WHO told the Associated Press.
In October, when the number of reported cases hit 300, the Trump administration, citing security concerns, barred U.S. health experts from working or traveling to the Democratic Republic of Congo to assist in the latest outbreak. Doctors Without Borders pulled staff from the affected areas in February after attacks on treatment centers.
Proven components in containing past Ebola outbreaks — tracking and monitoring an infected patient’s contacts — have been difficult to achieve in the densely populated war zone, a fact that has further enhanced the need for a robust supply of the vaccine. So far, of the 5.7 million people who live in North Kivu, 111,000 have received the Ebola vaccine, and 30,000 of that number are health workers. Merck, the American pharmaceutical company that has developed the yet-to-be FDA-approved vaccine, is working to ramp up production. The scale of the need, however, has prompted the WHO to propose a strategy of cutting the dosage to stretch supply. Still, Arthur said, the prospect of mass vaccination for Ebola won’t be quick.
yardstick: "...commemorating God’s testing of Abraham by commanding him to sacrifice his son Ishmael..." It was ISAAC whom Abraham was commanded to sacrifice... Ishamael was long gone before that...

bora: Is "foxes over the temple mount" metaphorical or literal; perhaps both. Where was that located?
Aug 13, 2019 22:28:28 GMT -6
bora: Yes. I see that it is in the Talmud, that to me represents man's doctrines that are binding upon God. In contrast, the Torah is God's doctrines that are binding upon man.

EnochWalked: "WARNING: VIDEO MAY BE DISTURBING". Yes, indeed, for many reasons. Elon has helped produce some great tech, but people shouldn't be showing such eagerness to have his machines and AI merge themselves with our bodies and minds.

bernie: fitz, EW: I think a lot of people will be as willing and excited as the gal in the video. And some of the other things they want to do in the Transhumanism movement are even creeper. Things are changing very quickly.

Joecool: I think they will make it a thing of convenience like when paying for stuff, imagine going into a store and just walking out with stuff you need, while scanner gets chip in your arm. Or not having to carry a wallet around

EnochWalked: Joe: Amazon is already one step ahead of you. Their new store only requires that you tap your phone as you enter to identify yourself (and your Amazon account), then their cameras follow you around and work out what you pick off the shelves. No implant.

EnochWalked: I'm not sure how these precision missiles are going to attack the peace deal itself (unless they can reach the White House). It would perhaps be ironic, though, if they were not as precise as hoped, and ended up destroying the Dome of the Rock instead.

inaweofhim: :)EnochWalked, I had to smile at that answer for precision!

EnochWalked: "Professor Amar determined that 66 kilograms ... of ash would be sufficient for at least 660 billion sprinklings." Those are rather ominous numbers, if this is the process that the Antichrist will be marking people with during the Tribulation.
