Pestilence Update


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.


“I feel like I’m locked in my house because I can’t open the window,” said a local resident. “They just keep multiplying.”


Citizens throughout Israel have reported massive amounts of moths invading their homes, according to local news agency mynetrehovot.

In recent nights, residents have reported moths swarming on the windows of their houses and “threatening to come in.”

“I feel like I’m locked in my house because I can’t open the window,” said a local resident. “They just keep multiplying.”

Batya ben-Ari, a resident of Rehovot, told mynetrehovot that the plague began last week.

“We find ourselves fighting with huge moths and there’s no way to stop them,” another local resident said.

Similar reports have surfaced throughout the region, including in Rishon Lezion, where as many as 20 moths have been reported entering apartments in one night.

“Even when the windows are closed, they stick to the glass like in a horror movie,” a resident from the area said. “Every day, I spray against pests and clean moths from the floor. It’s gotten to the point that the kids already are afraid to go to bed in their own rooms. It’s true they can’t really hurt anything but it’s really becoming a major nuisance.”

Mynetrehovot suggests turning off your lights and opening your windows to get the moths to leave.

Recently, a massive outbreak of black beetles was reported around the country and in Syria.

The Ministry of Environmental Protection stated that, “From our investigation, insects, including the moths, have shown up throughout the country due to changes in the weather. These moths are not dangerous to humans or clothing.”
