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.

“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.

EnochWalked: www.timesofisrael.com/liveblog-april-21-2021/ "Netanyahu: Bennett has cut deal with Lapid to be PM of left-wing gov’t. Yamina chair rips PM for ‘holding country hostage,’ pushing for ‘5th, 6th, 7th election,’". Two weeks until a new PM then?

bernie: Mike, Macron is basically saying it needs to be changed because it's wrong to not hold someone responsible just because they were on drugs. Why the courts got it wrong is beyond me.

EnochWalked: "The word assassin is often believed to derive from the word hashshashin (Arabic: حشّاشين, ħashshāshīyīn, also hashishin, hashashiyyin, or assassins), and shares its etymological roots with hashish (/hæˈʃiːʃ/ or /ˈhæʃiːʃ/; from Arabic: حشيش ḥashīsh)."

EnochWalked: I think you're right YS. I believe the theory was that the assassins of old may have used it as a performance enhancing drug. "it is commonly believed that Assassins were under the influence of hashish during their killings or during their indoctrination"

boraddict: To be a god is to be a guide. To follow a god is to follow a guide. To be your own guide is to be your own god. To follow God is to not follow yourself as a guide. Follow Jesus. My thought for the day.
