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.

Wow, Mike!! Thanks so much brother. Nelson makes a very good point- even though most evangelicals believe in a pretrib rapture, and I'm decidedly in that camp, it doesn't mean that terrible things won't happen first- and whatever one's views of Covid-19, it certainly proved that. If he's wrong and there's no food supply issues, then you have lost nothing and are better prepared for some other unforseen event, tornado,earthquake, fire, etc and also in a great position to help others. At the very moment I'm reading and posting on this thread, the topic in my mens' Bible study is Felt Needs, how seeing these opens the door for evangelism/ sharing the gospel. Wow!!
As I heard one person say, "Normal isn't coming back, Jesus is."
5 Bizarre New Plagues (US)
www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=4813 In this article, I am going to share with you a number of items that have been brought to my attention over the past month. On their own, each one of these items is "unusual", but the fact that so many really strange things are all happening simultaneously is definitely cause for alarm. 1. Rattlesnakes 2. Grasshoppers 3. Dead birds (I heard IN recommended taking down bird feeders) 4. Flooding 5. Heatwave
(Just noticed bernie had this posted in the shoutbox)
Mike, It's crazy how we can't trust anything anymore. It appears they'll do anything, even lying and changing the stats to fit their agenda. The same goes for Covid, politics and social issues. We're in the age of deception.
EnochWalked: "Ogolobyak, who was an adult at the time of the murders, was given 20 years, and wasn’t due to be released until 2030." So he's been given 7 years of freedom by Putin. It's like Putin is declaring 2023 to be a Jubilee year for the worst people in Russia.

EnochWalked: 'Egeland said the two sides would need to begin talks in secret to get the ball rolling. "These back channels, these discreet negotiations, have the great advantage that people are not talking to the gallery," he said.' Maybe they've already started.

EnochWalked: If they can mass produce them for a few hundred dollars each, like a mobile phone, then for a few $100m they'd be able to produce a million drones. I'm sure Ukraine would appreciate those right now, and they would be enough to kill the whole Russian army.

EnochWalked: www.iranintl.com/en/202311295280 "Putin Wants To Be Adopted By Khamenei, Iranian Cleric Says". There may be a mistranslation somewhere along the line, but it makes me wonder what acts of "filial" obedience Putin might do to help Hamas in Gaza.

Natalie : I am currently in the hospital waiting to get my gallbladder out. I was supposed to get it out yesterday so pray they get to me soon.

Natalie: I got bumped again. So I'm not sure when the surgery will be now

EnochWalked: Praying too! I don't know if our harpazo transformed bodies will include gallbladders, but if they, you might get replacement as a Hanukkah or Christmas gift! God will be with us, and our families, through whatever we have to face before then, though.
