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.

sam: 1290 days, or latter half of the 70th week, after the "middle of the week" AOD. I do not know of a verse that specifically identifies the entire 70th week 7 year period as "the Tribulation"
Apr 21, 2019 20:08:47 GMT -6
yardstick: As I mentioned, I believe it is a generalizing term used for describing all of the 70th week to a greater extent, and the first half of the 70th week to a lesser extent.

rusty pail: ...which brings me to a question I've been meaning to ask rt & Natalie in their coverage of "cleansing the tabernacle"... In my studies I've not found that phrase, only "cleansing the temple" (ex 2Chron29:15,18; see whole chpt). Any help on that?

rusty pail: Natalie Sry, just look'g for any historical ref. to it in Scripture. I see the 24 elders/Rev4-5 as yet fut., rather than 1st cent. context; so I've been study'g (in view of your posts), but seeing no hist. ref. to "cleans'g tabernacle" (only temple)

rusty pail: Re that, one author (1Chr25's 24-courses singers/musicians) said, in the days of the tabernacle "sacrifice" was characteristic feature (not "song"), but "in the temple in the day of glory, the song of triumph is the new and suitable feature"

Natalie: rusty pail - Do you mean Hebrews 9:23+ ? That the heavenly things were purified? I don't really understand it other than somehow with Christ's death, resurrection, and ascension, the heavenly things were purified - by His blood and Him as High Priest

rusty pail: Natalie , I was basing my study/research on (I think it was) a comment made by rt (having to do with "cleansing the tabernacle"), and I think was related to timing of the 24 elders/Rev4-5. Not sure I could point out that post now... Thanks anyway.
