Plague of Locusts Descends on Egypt, Creates Panic in Israel

As if out of the pages of the Book of Revelation, this unnerving breaking news story from the UK based news website Mail Online was posted on March 4th. I have re-blogged it below for subscribers. As the Papal conclave selects a new Pope [ Will he be the last Pope?] look what is happening close by in Egypt and Israel:

Locust alert in Middle East as plague descends on Egypt and creates panic in Israel

  • Israel’s Agriculture Ministry set up an emergency hotline and task force
  • The swarm is estimated to be made up of 30million insects
  • The infestation has been devastating crops in Egypt ahead of Passover

As swarms of locust devour Egyptian crops, the Middle East is bracing for the destructive bugs to migrate their way ahead of the Passover holiday.

A swarm of an estimated 30million insects has been devastating crops in Egypt, fuelling apocalyptic fears because of the infestation’s proximity to the Bible story of Passover in which a swarm of locusts, the eighth of ten plagues, is imposed on Egyptians by God for enslaving and abusing ancient Hebrews.

Israel’s Agriculture Ministry set up an emergency hotline today and urged residents to be vigilant in reporting sightings of the insects to prevent an outbreak.

A special task force has also been set up to help farmers manage infestations.

The locusts pass through the country as part of their normal migration from north east Sudan to Saudi Arabia, the Egyptian Agriculture Ministry said, emphasizing that Egypt was just ‘a transfer station’ for the locusts, which were in larger numbers this year.

As the insects descended on agricultural farms in Giza and in Cairo, causing significant damage, fears have been raised that they could spread to Israel.

In a statement from the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations, the infestation was described as a ‘immature swarm’ which ‘appeared in the afternoon (on March 2) in the eastern Cairo districts of New Cairo and Mokattam and dispersed into several smaller swarmlets’.

The statement read: ‘The locusts originated from breeding that has been in progress since November in southeast Egypt between Berenice and the Sudanese border.

‘As vegetation dried out, small groups and swarms of immature adults moved slowly north along the Red Sea coast, reaching Marsa Alam on 8 February, Hurghada on the 16th and Zafarana on the 26th.’

As well as Israel, Lebanon and Jordan have been alerted.

In Cairo, people were burning tyres to create black smoke to deter the locust from settling and there were reports that swarms had been seen in Zafarana, about 124 miles from Cairo, on the Red Sea and in the city of Qena, where the insects have been sighted in at least three villages.

According to the Israel National News, the Egyptian Agriculture Minister Dr Salah Abd Al Mamon said: ‘Egyptian armed forces and border guards are attempting to fight the swarm with all means at their disposal.

‘I ask the families living in the locust-plagues areas not to burn tyres. This does not chase away the locusts, but only causes damage and could ignite largescale fires that would cost in lives.’

He said that strong winds were predicted in weather forecasts and he hoped that this would force the insects to migrate toward the Red Sea and Saudi Arabia. Crop duster planes were also going to be used to handle the infestation.

Egypt and Israel was infested with locust in 2004. Israeli agriculture officials sent crop dusters into the air to spray against the locusts that swept in from North Africa in the first such invasion since 1959.

Farmers in 15 out of the 27 Egyptian governorates suffered significant agricultural damage as the insects devoured crops and flowers.

This year Passover will begin on the evening of March 25 and end on the evening of April 2.

The infestation comes as a study warns that yellow-legged Asian hornets that prey on bees are among the latest non-native species threatening UK wildlife, and even people’s health.

A growing number of alien species, from killer shrimps to Spanish slugs, are set to soon reach our shores, a Europe-wide study warns.

The Asian hornet, which grows to between 2.5cm and 3cm (1-1.2 inches), preys on native honeybees, wasps and other pollinators, potentially devastating hives and threatening honey and crop production.

Bodies of Water Become Blood Red, Occurring All Around the World

“The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.” – Revelation 16:4

Updated on 7.25.2014

It’s happening again: this time it’s happening in China and the photos are both disconcerting and dramatic. No matter what scientists or geologists believe might be the technical cause of this sudden and unsettling phenomenon, I believe that God is speaking to His people through this manifestation. I believe He is saying that “too much innocent blood is being shed on this earth” due to hatred and reckless ongoing war. He is warning the world. He is demanding an end to the “rivers of innocent blood” which are now being spilled in nation upon nation as innocent lives are lost to murder, war and Islamic religious fanaticism gone berserk.

River In China Mysteriously Turns Bloody Red Overnight

PHOTO: The water in a river in Xinmeizhou village in eastern Chinas Zhejiang province turned red overnight, baffling locals, July 25, 2014.

PHOTO: The river in Xinmeizhou village in eastern Chinas Zhejiang province quickly filled up with the red colored liquid which had a strange smell, according to villagers, July 25, 2014.

In October of 2012 I reported:

It’s a disconcerting natural phenomenon that is being documented around the world, and it has been happening for several years. It’s also a biblical phenomena that most Christians are familiar with being prophesied in the Bible. The most recent body of water to suddenly turn bright blood red is a large lake located in the Rhone Delta region in France.

The phenomenon was discovered and photographed and by Russian tourists traveling in the region, who took the photos below. Click any photo to see the enlargement.

The most peculiar thing about France’s suddenly blood red lake is that other bodies of water which are nearby remain completely normal and are unaffected. What’s more, red bodies of water and red rivers are appearing all over the world, and they have been for several years now. It even rained red water in India recently.

Is it a phytoplankton bloom, excess minerals and salt, an algae bloom, or is it really bible prophecy fulfilled?  The scientific explanation for the blood red lake in France is an excess of salt. Other manifestations of red water in other parts of the world have yet to be fully explained by science. Each case is different. The re-occurring natural phenomenon of bodies of water turning red around the world seems oddly timed and concurrent with many other “end-times” prophecies and phenomenon.

I find in all of this irrefutable evidence of not only the Providence of God, but the all knowing and far seeing nature of His Presence as well. There is no explanation which can ever be given which can explain away the Bible prophecies from centuries ago which predicted this end times phenomenon, even though in modern times it does have a scientific explanation. Science has to stop and ponder that God pre-knew that bodies of water would turn blood red with increasing frequency during the early years of the 21st century, and directed His prophets to record certain passages in scripture which refer to this incredible end times phenomenon.

Below is a list of locations around the world where the water has turned bright blood red in recent years:

Yangtze River China

Texas

Rhone Delta France

India

Antarctica

Russia, Ukraine, Sea of Azov

Memphis Tennessee

Cited:

On Friday, August 10, 2012, the waters of a lake in The Camargue, a marshy area in the Rhone delta, turned “blood red.” The scene certainly baffled holiday makers. The strange thing about it is lakes on the left and right of the red lake are absolutely as you’d expect with them to be, with normal water.

Some say the French lake runs red with… salt? Maybe so, but what about all the other lakes, river, waterfalls, streams, ponds, and reservoirs without salt that are turning red around the world with some regularity now – and don’t forget the red rain in India.
