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.
raindrop: Not to mention that the RC church removed the commandment forbidding us from making images of anything, in heaven or on earth, and bowing down to pray and worship. It is SO messed up.

Joecool: Yes Thank You God for Tacos, also Thank You our salvation doesn't rely upon us.

mike: Amen Joe. I like to think that our salvation was dependant on us. Adam & Eve changed that. Not that the Lord want prepared

bernie: I was raised in the cult of Rome, but my 17th B-Day I joined the military and was gifted a Gideons NT at the induction center. I left the rituals & superstitions of Rome shortly thereafter, when God's Word revealed the truth to me.

mike: Isa 11:10, John 3:14, John 8:28, John 12:32 - and many indicate that it is the SON and only the Son who should be the focus of mens hearts. Unfortunately there are those who believe otherwise in many, too many other belief systems

bernie: Salvation is not in rituals, good works, or anything else. It's a free gift wrapped up in a whole lot of grace, mercy & love, and it' available to all freely by simple faith in Christ crucified as the perfect & complete payment for the sins of the world.

bernie: The Roman Mass violates the book of Hebrews which says there are no more sacrifices for sin. It claims the priest calls down Christ from Heaven and re-sacrifices him at every mass they perform. If that's not blasphemous, I don't know what is.

EnochWalked: Basically, someone who knew Luther wrote an ambiguous, out of context, half-remembered supposed quote of what Luther said to him one day. Luther was probably talking about Christ's unfairly maligned reputation, and how God "made him to be sin for us".

bora: There was a point that the Father withdrew his spirit from Christ. Perhaps it was then that sin was upon the Savior and he died as an eternal payment.

EnochWalked: "Included in this will be an international court based on Biblical principles." They really do plan for a One World Government, run from Jerusalem, under Rabbinic law. I think we know what sort of person they want as the leader of this government.

EnochWalked: “Even in a benign AI scenario we will be left behind,” he said. “With a high-bandwidth brain-machine interface, we can actually go along for the ride. We can have the option of merging with AI.”
