From link - Billions of locusts are eating everything in sight in east Africa right now, and every single day many more farms are being completely wiped out. Unfortunately, authorities are telling us that what we have seen so far is just the tip of the iceberg. In fact, if extreme measures are not implemented immediately, authorities are claiming that this locust plague could literally get “500 times” worse in a few months. But it is difficult to imagine conditions getting any worse than they are at this moment. Ravenous locust swarms that are “the size of cities” are consuming crops at a staggering pace, and this could potentially cause famine on the African continent that is unlike anything we have ever seen before.
Scripture abounds with verses on locusts, pestilence, and famine. The timing of this outbreak, worst in a generation, along with the revealing of the "peace plan" at the generational marker for Jerusalem and Israel, a huge earthquake, political upheaval in the US and abroad, etc., etc., seems to be Heavens shouting to the world to look up to your Father. The time is soon!

I just saw this article that is hot off the press. The convergence of all these fires, diseases and locust plagues is the big deal- imho.
One of the locust swarms in East Kenya is 40 kilometers wide and 60 kilometers long, larger than Tokyo, London or Paris. It sure seems like we are on the cusp of the rapture. Wars and rumors of wars- check. Earthquakes in many different places- check. Blood moons- check. Pestilence- check. Apostasy- many departing from the faith - check. Many false prophets- check. People claiming the Messiah is here or there- check. Dividing God's land - check. Peace treaty with many nations- (made greater, strengthened) - sure appears to be the case.
From link - KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) — Weeks before the coronavirus spread through much of the world, parts of Africa were already threatened by another kind of plague, the biggest locust outbreak some countries had seen in 70 years.
Now the second wave of the voracious insects, some 20 times the size of the first, is arriving. Billions of the young desert locusts are winging in from breeding grounds in Somalia in search of fresh vegetation springing up with seasonal rains.
Millions of already vulnerable people are at risk. And as they gather to try to combat the locusts, often in vain, they risk spreading the virus — a topic that comes a distant second for many in rural areas.
Video from Barry Scarbrough. It's short 7 minutes. In it he talks about update from UN on mass starvation predicted to be coming by this December caused by increasing amount of locusts. Claims up to 8,000 times bigger than the recent ones that were bad enough. I believe the 7 years of feast will come to an end this year, and by the end of this year into the next will begin 7 years of famine. The time is getting clearer and nearer.
Matthew 24:7 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

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.
