A scripture verse that gets quoted more often
these days than almost all others is from the Gospel of Matthew.
“For nation shall rise against nation, and
kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and
earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
Most Bible teachers point to these verses as prophetic in that they as well as
the rest of Matthew 24 will take place during the tribulation period. I tend to
agree with them on that interpretation but we can certainly see all these things
currently approaching, similarly to a woman in travail. Birth pangs are growing
Swine flu hysteria is running amuck. We read about
it everywhere on the internet, in the newspaper, and I imagine it’s all over the
TV news networks. This swine flu is mutating into a major problem, but just a
few days ago it was nothing. How bad is it? There are different scenarios being
floated by variousworldwide
organizations. Mr. Obama says “There’s no cause for
alarm”. The World Health Organization has elevated the alert to a phase 4
pandemic. The UN is warning of a global pandemic. The blame game has begun.
Terrorists are being blamed for a biological planned attack on the U.S. There was a Republican running
the department of Health and Human Services up until 28th of April
when Congress affirmed the new secretary and as such Republicans are being
There is a lot of excitement about a few outbreaks
of this swine flu in the U.S. In Mexico
150 people have died from the outbreak. As I write this commentary swine flu has
now spread to at least five other nations besides Mexico and the US. So
is it a pandemic? If so how do we cope with such an outbreak? Personally I’ll
need to see a whole lot more evidence come to the surface before I start to get
overly concerned. But whether or not there is a pandemic at hand isn’t really
what I amwriting
about today. The real scare,asI’ve outlined
currently being quietly removed from the public eye. Out of sight out of mind.
still the major outbreak of the worst kind of pestilence is at hand.
doesn’t seem to be much outrage associated with it. No one seems to even think
about this disease any more, yet it has takenmillions
of lives over the past twenty-five years orso.
HIV/AIDS is a much more serious disease and yet we hardly hear about it these
days. Why is that? It’s transferred sexually and yet promiscuous sexual
intercourse is not only promoted in every aspect of our lives but actually
encouraged among our young children. Abstinence is being disparaged.
“AIDS was first identified in the USA in
1981. The epidemic has now spread to every part of the USA and
to all sectors of society. It is thought that more than
one million people are living with HIV in the USA and
that more than half a million have died after

Where’s the panic when it comes to this
worldwide epidemic? The above statistics are as of December 2007
but the report also stated that the amount of
deaths for 2008 ran about the same as 2007, that’s 2 million people dying every
year from Aids? Where’s the outrage when we know for a fact how it’s spread?
Yes, let’s get into a whole new pandemic
so we can all take our minds off the real culprits involved in spreading death.
Let’s legalize same sex marriage so we can all feel better about these sick,debased
individuals who are seemingly incapable of recognizing what they are doing
to spread disease like there’s no tomorrow. Who cares about the consequences
associated with this completely debouched lifestyle? Let them be married, let
them be legitimized. Let’s pass hate crimes bills so no one can ever say one
word against such a lifestyle without feeling the wrath of the law. Let that
obscene lifestyle be promoted throughout our public school system as a loving
and caring lifestyle of people whowere
supposedly born different. This is a huge lie being perpetrated on a Christ
rejecting, willingly ignorant and foolish society.
Pestilence, yes there will be pestilence
in the last days in divers places. All around the world there will be
pestilences but let’s at least place the blame in the laps of the biggest
pestilence producing group of individuals of human history. The homosexual
community is responsible for this judgment. Why? Because they refuse to believe
the word of Godwhen
it plainly states the following.
“For the wrath of God is
revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who
hold the truth in unrighteousness; ... Wherefore God also gave them up to
uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies
between themselves: ... For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections:
for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against
nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned
in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly,
and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And
even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over
to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled
with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness;
full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters
of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to
parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection,
implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit
such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them
that do them.” Romans 1:18,
But as Mr. Obama declared in one of his
campaign speeches “Nobody should be concerned with a few obscure Bible verses”.
Obama’s very poignant statement will go down in infamy as our government
implodes from within.
This newly professed pandemic may be a
new judgment from God, butcertainly
we’ve been under judgment for some years now and it hasn’t even made a dent in
our attitudes towards God. If anything we as a society have actually moved
further away from God. So perhaps we are in for a new round of judgments;once
again God’s focus may well be on getting our attention before it’s too late.
Perhaps this time Lord.
