PROPHESIED END TIMES PESTILENCES AND FAMINES

Jesus speaking to His disciples on the “end times” said, “And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And
this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:7-14

Long before we ever heard of the new coronavirus, African Swine Fever was devastating pork farms from one end of China to the other. There is no vaccine for “pig ebola”, there is no cure, and once it hits a farm the only thing that can be done is to kill every single pig so that it won’t spread anywhere else. But even though draconian measures have been implemented, it has just kept spreading, and at this point “about two-thirds of China’s swineherd has been lost”… Video of people fighting over pork at Chinese meat counters will likely become more common as the fallout from the African swine fever outbreak in China progresses.

Brett Stuart, president of the market research and analysis firm Global AgriTrends, estimates that about two-thirds of China’s swineherd has been lost to the disease and contrary to official government reports of recovery, more pigs are dying every day as ASF continues to spread.

Prior to this crisis, approximately half of all the pigs in the entire world lived in China, and they would usually slaughter about 700 million a year. But now pork production has absolutely plummeted, and this is driving pork prices in China through the roof… In China itself, pork prices are at an all-time high at just under $300 per hundredweight and the country outbids Japan, which is usually the top bidder. Food inflation is soaring and some Chinese people have been unable to buy pork in six months.

Meanwhile, there has been a very alarming resurgence of the H5N1 bird flu in China. According to the Daily Mail, more than 17,000 chickens have been culled in an effort to keep this new outbreak from spreading further. According to the Reuters report, Chinese authorities have already culled 17,828 poultry in the wake of the outbreak.

Unlike African Swine Fever, humans can become infected by the H5N1 bird flu. And according to the World Health Organisation, the mortality rate for human cases is approximately 60 percent.

Alarmingly, the H5N1 bird flu has also popped up at a facility in India. Authorities in an eastern Indian state will start culling chickens and destroying eggs from Tuesday to contain a bird flu virus of the H5N1 strain, a government statement said on Monday.

We haven’t heard much about the H5N1 bird flu in recent years, but this is an extremely deadly disease, and so WHO will monitor these developments very carefully.

On top of everything else, the H1N1 swine flu is starting to spread once again. In fact, more than 100,000 people in Taiwan “sought medical treatment for flu-like symptoms at hospitals across the country over the past week” and there have been 13 confirmed deaths

At a time when the world is panicking over a 2019-nCoV coronavirus outbreak, the H1N1 flu virus is actually posing a greater threat in Taiwan, claiming 13 lives in the country in just one week, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

At a weekly meeting Friday, CDC Deputy Director-General Chuang Jen-hsiang (莊人祥) said 116,705 people sought medical treatment for flu-like symptoms at hospitals across the country over the past week, including 61 more confirmed flu cases.

Not too long ago, the H1N1 swine flu caused mass panic all over the globe.

And never before have we seen so many alarming outbreaks occur simultaneously. Could it be possible that we have entered the time of which Jesus spoke, the time before His return to rule and reign from Jerusalem?

IN THE “LAST DAYS” FAMINES, PESTILENCE AND DISEASE

Jesus said, in the last days before His return: “and there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:7b

Wuhan, the central China city at the heart of the coronavirus outbreak, has been put in quarantine, starting 1pm (AEDT) on Thursday, January 2020.

The deadly new strain of coronavirus is mutating into a more virulent disease that can be transmitted through airborne droplets from coughing or sneezing, Chinese ­scientists warned, as the death toll nearly doubled to nine in just 24 hours and the number of confirmed cases across the country climbed to 440.

Update January 27th: President Xi Jinping calls the  accelerating spread of coronavirus a grave situation, as the illness infects more than 1200 and kills 41. Desperate residents and doctors describe “doomsday” scenes at overwhelmed hospitals in the city at the centre of the outbreak

It has since spread to South Korea, Japan and Thailand, with the US, Macau and Taiwan also ­reporting their first confirmed cases on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Four cases of the deadly coronavirus have been confirmed in Australia, as authorities scramble to contact passengers who shared flights from China with the patients. Three men tested positive to the respiratory condition in NSW on Saturday, Jan 25th, state health authorities confirmed.

Chinese officials are scrambling to enforce containment measures, just days before hundreds of millions of people travel across the country and abroad for the Chinese New Year holiday.

Strict prevention and control measures are in force, granting authorities sweeping powers to lock down affected areas and quarantine patients — as occurred during the 2009 H1N1 (swine flu) outbreak.

China also would step up co-operation with the World Health Organisation, China’s National Health Commission vice-minister, Li Bin said. An emergency WHO meeting in Geneva was scheduled for late Wednesday to determine whether to declare a rare global public health emergency over the disease.

In Australia, the NSW Health Department’s executive director of health protection, Jeremy McAn­ulty said, with the coronavirus having been declared a notifiable disease in NSW, “if necessary people can be placed in isolation”.
