8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
Commentary; ‘pale’ suggests disease, death and dying. Disease and death are the normal results for those subjected to endless warring. Cholera, famine, infection, no clean water, no housing, no medicine, no hospitals, etc., all play a part in continuing to kill those who were not killed in direct fighting. These are normally the ‘innocent’ or the civilians, not the military. Hell follows, why? Because the vast majority of peoples in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere have rejected the gospel of salvation by Jesus Christ for just over 2,000 years. They follow Satan’s lies (Islam) and deceptions with other false religions (Hindu deities) and various deceiving doctrines. Even though they appear ‘innocent’ by the world’s standards, they are none-the-less ‘unsaved’ because of their rejection of Christ. Time is up, they unfortunately die because of the effects of war, in an unsaved state … hence ‘hell awaits them’. This is truth.
Time is (7) up, they unfortunately die because of the (7) effects of war, in an unsaved state … (7) hence ‘hell awaits them’. This is truth.

Health officials warn painful diseases will become a major threat this decade: ‘There’s a lot of unknowns’
Doric Sam Mon, November 20, 2023 at 2:30 AM CST
Global heating will cause several painful diseases prevalent in tropical countries to become a major threat to the rest of the world over the next decade, health officials warned in a recent report by the Nature Climate Change journal. “There’s a lot of unknowns,” cautioned Céline Gossner, who leads a team on emerging food- and vector-borne diseases at the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control in Solna, Sweden.
The report noted that climate change, globalization, and the increase in international trade and travel are all contributing factors to the continent of Europe becoming more susceptible to vectors of debilitating and potentially deadly pathogens that lead to increased risk of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). “People are catching, and sometimes dying from, NTDs and other mosquito-borne diseases that were once confined to the tropics, such as West Nile, Zika, dengue and chikungunya viruses, as well as parasitic diseases such as schistosomiasis,” the report stated. “Cases of vector-borne diseases that are already endemic in Europe, such as leishmaniasis, are on the rise.”
However, the scope of the problem is not limited to Europe, as other parts of the non-tropical world, such as the Gulf Coast of the United States, “are experiencing similar issues,” according to Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. These warnings come in the wake of a report from earlier in November where a 2022 study predicted that global heating will worsen 58% of pathogens that cause infectious diseases in humans.
Why is this concerning?
These diseases “have the potential to become significant threats to public health,” the report stated. For most of them, there are no available antiviral therapies. The report also noted that “it is clear that climate change has created suitable conditions for the emergence or re-emergence of NTDs.” For example, there were 1,112 locally acquired cases of West Nile in 11 countries in Europe in 2022, the highest since a peak of 1,548 in 2018. “It’s in most of southern Europe,” said Gossner, “and it’s spreading northwards.”
It’s reached a point where European physicians need to be aware of the possibility of NTDs being acquired locally and not just during foreign travel. “Part of our job is being watchdogs not only for our patients, but also for public health,” said Camilla Rothe, a clinician specializing in tropical health at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich in Germany.
What can be done about it?
For now, more research and analysis is required, as the journal noted that “understanding the risk that these diseases pose depends on knowing where vectors are present and how they are behaving.” The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control has taken steps on that front with a project called VectorNet that it runs in collaboration with the European Food Safety Authority. VectorNet “compiles data on the distribution of disease vectors such as mosquitoes, ticks and sand flies across Europe and the Mediterranean region.” Further understanding of the way vectors affect the environment can help lead to the development of vaccines and treatments for these diseases.

Study reveals alarming reason infectious diseases may worsen in coming decades: ‘58% of those diseases can be affected or triggered in 1,000 different ways’
Leo Collis Wed, November 15, 2023 at 5:00 AM CST TCD
A 2022 study published in the Nature Climate Change journal predicted that 58% of all known pathogens that affect humans will be made worse by global heating. 286 human pathogenic diseases that can be linked to 10 climate hazards.
Study leaders described the data as “shocking,” but there are still steps we can take to avoid this from occurring.
A team led by Camilo Mora, a data analyst and associate professor in the Department of Geography and Environment at the University of Hawaii Manoa, found 286 human pathogenic diseases that can be linked to 10 climate hazards.
Heating, floods, and drought are among the extreme weather events that can make the risk and spread of these diseases more pronounced, with 277 of these pathogens made worse by at least one climate hazard.
“The magnitude of the vulnerability when you think about one or two diseases — okay, sure, we can deal with that,” Mora told ABC News. “But when you’re talking about 58% of the diseases, and 58% of those diseases can be affected or triggered in 1,000 different ways. So that, to me, was also revealing of the fact that we’re not going to be able to adapt to climate change.”
Why is this so concerning? The research suggests that humans will need to adapt to the impacts of global heating in more ways than previously anticipated. With increasing wildfires causing greater risk of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, more regular flooding events raising the likelihood of waterborne illnesses like Legionnaires disease, and changing weather driving mosquitoes to travel further, spreading dangerous diseases like dengue fever, it’s clear that mitigation efforts are needed to stop the spread of diseases as climate patterns change. “There is a broad taxonomic diversity of human pathogenic diseases, such as bacteria, viruses, animals, plants, fungi and protozoa, as well as transmission types – for example, vector-borne, airborne, direct contact – that can be affected by warming, heat waves, droughts, wildfires, extreme precipitation, floods and sea level rise, according to the study,” as ABC News summarized.
The COVID-19 pandemic was just one example of how pathogenic diseases can have huge societal impacts, and Mora believes global heating had a huge part to play in the global health crisis. What can be done to stop these diseases? Reducing planet-warming pollution is the single most important thing we can do to prevent the rise of temperatures worldwide and the associated extreme weather that brings. While sometimes it might seem hopeless to instigate change from a personal perspective, small changes in lifestyle can make a big difference. Traveling more sustainably — by walking, cycling, using public transport, or driving electric cars — and eating less meat are just two things that will help reduce the production of gases that trap heat in the atmosphere.
But how can (7) they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save (7) them unless they believe in Him (Jesus Christ)? (7) And how can they believe in Him (7) (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about (7) Him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear (7) about Him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” Romans 10:14 (777777)
