India reports bird flu cases in three separate locations. Special squads deployed to cull poultry

1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

Isaiah 13:8

And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.

Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

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.

India reports bird flu cases in three separate locations. Special squads deployed to cull poultry

Samuel Osborne  The Independent March 16, 2020

Several cases of bird flu have been reported in India, prompting authorities to order the culling of poultry.

Kerala‘s government said it had deployed special squads to cull all poultry within a 1km radius of the epicentre of the outbreak in Parappanangadi.

Authorities said they would cull around 4,000 chickens, ducks and pet birds to prevent the spread of the disease.

The state’s disease inspection officer, Nanda Kumar, told India Today: “Ten special squads have been deployed to cull all poultry within 1km radius of the epicenter.”

Earlier this month, two cases were reported in the villages of Kodiathoor and Vengeri, in the same state.

Bird flu is an infectious type of influenza that spreads among birds and can affect humans in rare instances.

It is spread through contact with an infectious bird, according to the NHS.

The disease cannot be caught by eating cooked poultry or eggs.

It comes as the coronavirus outbreak has spread around the world, infecting more than 169,000 people as thousands with the virus have died.
