China to require meat processors to test for African swine fever – agriculture ministry

Blog note. Jesus indicated that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up to the time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be identified as the ‘season of the times’ due to the ferociousness of these events. They would be occurring in greater intensity, severity, frequency, size, duration, scope … just like the pains that a woman experiences in labor the farther along she is in the labor process. We are in the ‘season of the times’ that comes just before the seven (7) year Tribulation/Great Tribulation period
… And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11).
… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)
… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)
… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)
Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied Eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor.

China to require meat processors to test for African swine fever – agriculture ministry

Reuters•April 3, 2019

BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s agriculture ministry said on Wednesday it will require pork processors handling raw pork to test for the presence of the African swine fever virus from May 1.

The tougher procedures come as the virus continues to spread through the world’s largest pig herd. It has often been found in food products.

The virus is not harmful to people but can be passed on to other pigs through consumption of food waste that is not properly processed. It is usually fatal for pigs.

Processors should be inspected and show certificates to demonstrate that purchased pig products, including imported meat, do not contain the virus, said the notice published on the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs’ website.

Provincial market supervision departments will organise sampling of pork products to check for the virus, it added.

China has reported 116 outbreaks of African swine fever since the disease was first detected last August, although many believe it is much worse than officially reported.
