Pestilence on the Move: The “Worst Parasite in the World” Kills a Tourist: The Naegleria Fowleri Amoeba Is Responsible for a 97 Percent Deadly Sickness
The Missouri resident who was infected with a brain-eating amoeba while visiting Iowa has died. The unnamed person is believed to have contracted the amoeba while swimming in Taylor County’s Lake of Three Fires in late June; the lake was closed afterward as a precaution. No other cases have been reported. “Because these cases are so incredibly rare and out of respect for the family, we do not intend to release additional information about the patient which could lead to the person’s identification,” the communications director from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services tells the Des Moines Register.
The Naegleria fowleri amoeba, which has been called “the worst parasite in the world,” causes primary amebic meningoencephalitis, which has a fatality rate of 97%. The rare but deadly series of events happens when, while in warm freshwater, the amoeba goes up a person’s nose. It travels from there to the brain tissue and starts destroying it. Headaches, fever, nausea, and vomiting are among the initial symptoms. Of the 154 cases reported in the US over the past six decades, only four people have survived, NBC News reports. The lake has not yet been confirmed as the source, and other public water sources are being tested, officials say. (Read more Naegleria fowleri stories.)
The Biblical Prophecies Foretell (Revelation 8, Revelation 16) That Changes Will Come to Earth,Environment, Temperatures, and Waters, That Will Cause It to Become Toxic With Harmful Results for Life on Earth Indicating the Coming End of the Age
The word translated “pestilence” is often translated as “plague” or “disaster” in new versions of the English Bible. However, because the word is often paired with both of those, it may imply greater devastation than a mere physical disease. Pestilence incorporates any and all forms of public and mass destruction and often accompanies famine (Ezekiel 7:15) or war (Jeremiah 21:9). Jesus forewarned of pestilence when He described the end times (Luke 21:11).
Flesh-eating bacteria is continuing to infect people at an alarming rate with many surprised that it happened to them.
And these events are signs of the Last Days revealing its time to prepare for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ to catch away His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2). This new birth experience brings peace and joy in the Holy Spirit now in this life, and eternal life in the world to come.
A Kentucky man says he believes he became infected with flesh-eating bacteria during a camping trip, and he is still recovering weeks later. “Never in my dreams…never in my dreams would I have guessed this would have happened.”
It started when Jonathan Metcalf of Lancaster took a Memorial Day weekend trip to the Green River with his family. He would spend two weeks in the hospital, and he had a six-inch portion of his upper thigh removed as part of one surgery. He is now waiting on a skin graft.
Metcalf said, “This never would have crossed my mind something like this could have hit me. It’s something you see on Facebook that you never think could be in your house.”
A Virginia woman contracted the flesh-eating bacteria that spread through her leg after just 10 minutes in the water and had to have emergency surgery days later.
Edwards had been at Norfolk’s Ocean View Beach with friends when she noticed the infection spreading. She said she ignored it for a couple of days until she couldn’t walk anymore.
She went to the hospital for emergency surgery where “they had to cut me open, drain it out and stuff it with some gauze. I had to keep it covered for days. I had to take three antibodies every six hours. I was just like, ‘Oh, my goodness my leg is gonna fall off.’”
In Texas, a father of six died of flesh-eating bacteria despite never going into the water. It left his wife questioning how he contracted the bacteria, which can enter the body through small scrapes and cuts.
She described how he never got into the water when crabbing but he did pull the crab traps out of the water. The 56-year-old father of six went crabbing with his family on the Fourth of July, and within two days he was unable to walk.
They took Gary Evans to the hospital where they put him directly into ICU and the next day his legs were swollen with pus-filled blisters.
Then it spread into his liver, his kidneys and he was on a respirator. It also got into his blood system and started collapsing his veins. The next day he was dead.
His wife Debbie said once Gary was infected, the bacteria moved swiftly. She said “this bacteria is a lot worse than people really think it is. It is not a bacteria that is easily contained; it comes in with vengeance, and it is relentless, just, like, destroying everything in its path.”
The stories being reported to go on and on, like the Tennessee man who just died in less than 48 hours after being infected with flesh-eating bacteria during a trip to Florida.
And doctors and scientists are sounding the alarm that flesh-eating bacteria is spreading, which is a sign of how the earth and its waters are changing pointing to that foretold in the prophecies.
These are signs pointing to the prophecies (Matthew 24, Revelation 6) how that pestilence will come where the prophecies also foretell (Revelation 8, Revelation 16) how that the earth will change becoming more toxic with deathly results spreading among humankind.
These are signs of the Last Days revealing its time to prepare for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2). This new birth experience brings peace and joy in the Holy Spirit now in this life, and eternal life in the world to come. Source
Jesus specifically warned us that there would be “pestilences” in the end times, and so if we really are approaching the time of His return this is one of the things that we should be watching for. Of course, we don’t know if COVID-19 is one of the “pestilences” that Jesus was referring to, but in recent days it has greatly distressed me to see so many Christians attempting to downplay the severity of this virus. The number of confirmed cases and the global death toll have both been rising at an exponential rate day after day, and experts are warning that over half of the population of the world could eventually get this virus, but so many voices out there are boldly assuring people that they don’t have anything to be concerned about even though they don’t have any medical credentials at all. Personally, I think that it pays to listen to the experts during a crisis like this, and the experts are telling us that millions could soon die. In fact, as you will see below, a doctor that sat on the White House Homeland Security Council is saying that this is the most “frightening disease” that he has ever encountered. After everything that we have already learned about this virus, anyone that is not taking this pandemic seriously is not being wise.
But is this just another pandemic that will come and go, or is this one of the “pestilences” that we were warned about almost 2000 years ago?
In Luke chapter 21, Jesus explained to His disciples what conditions would be like just prior to His return, and in verse 11 He specifically warned that there would be “pestilences”. The following comes from the King James Version…
11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
We have definitely seen a rise in seismic activity in recent years, billions of locusts are devouring crops from eastern Africa all the way to China right now, and Australia just had the worst harvest season that they have ever recorded.
So it is interesting to note that the stage is being set for some of the other signs that Jesus mentioned at the very same time that this coronavirus outbreak is starting to spiral out of control.
Only time will tell if COVID-19 is truly one of the “pestilences” that Jesus was referring to, but at this point, it has become exceedingly clear that we should all be taking it very seriously.
This virus jumps from person to person with incredible ease, and it has a death rate that is about 34 times higher than the ordinary flu. In fact, the death rate for COVID-19 is actually higher than the death rate during the Spanish Flu pandemic. And let us never forget that the Spanish Flu pandemic killed between 50 million and 100 million people from 1918 to 1920.
I do not understand why anyone would possibly want to try to downplay this outbreak, and those that are doing so could end up greatly contributing to the spread of this virus.
Proverbs 22:3 says this…
3 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.
Fortunately for us, this outbreak started on the other side of the globe and so we had some time to prepare before it got here.
So will you be like the prudent man in the Book of Proverbs?
Sadly, a lot of people out there don’t seem to grasp the seriousness of what we are potentially facing.
According to Dr.Richard Hatchett, “50 – 70 percent of the global population” could eventually end up catching this virus…
An infectious diseases expert at the forefront of the search for a coronavirus vaccine said on Friday that it was the most “frightening disease“ he’s ever encountered, and that “war is an appropriate analogy” for what the country is facing, as “50 – 70 percent of the global population” may become infected.
Dr. Richard Hatchett, who sat on the White House Homeland Security Council in 2005 – 2006 and was a principal author of the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza Implementation Plan, and currently heads the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, told the UK’s Channel 4:
“This is the most frightening disease I’ve ever encountered in my career, and that includes Ebola, it includes MERS, it includes SARS. And it’s frightening because of the combination of infectiousness and a lethality that appears to be manyfold higher than flu.”
That sure sounds like a “global pestilence” to me.
Let us pray that he is completely wrong.
But as we pray, it will also be important for us to take the recommended precautions. During an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press”, Dr. Anthony Fauci warned that the elderly and those with “underlying conditions” will need to make adjustments to their lifestyles immediately…
“If you are an elderly person with an underlying condition, if you get infected, the risk of getting into trouble is considerable. So it’s our responsibility to protect the vulnerable,” he said.
“When I say ‘protect,’ I mean right now. Not wait until things get worse. Say no large crowds, no long trips. And above all, don’t get on a cruise ship.”
Personally, I think that is great advice for all of us.
If you have family members or friends that are not taking this outbreak seriously, you need to try to get through to them.
According to documents that have been leaked to the public, U.S. hospitals “are preparing for 96 million coronavirus infections”…
US hospitals are preparing for 96 million coronavirus infections and nearly half a million deaths from the outbreak, leaked documents have revealed.
The spread of the deadly disease could be far worse than officials claim, with 480,000 Americans expected to die from the virus and 4.8 million hospitalized, according to a presentation hosted by The American Hospital Association (AHA) in February.
For years, Bible-believing Christians all over America have been preaching that Jesus is coming back soon.
And for years, we have seen so many other pieces of the end times prophetic scenario start to come together.
Now a global pestilence has erupted, and in Luke 21 we were specifically warned to watch for “pestilences” in the last days.
Once again, only time will tell if COVID-19 is one of those “pestilences”, but without a doubt, all of us should be taking this virus very, very seriously. Source
“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.” (Joel 2:28.)
John Wesley who said that what we tolerate in our generation, will be embraced by the next. Wesley is 100% correct! We are living in sick times.
Usually, the Lord doth no great thing for or against his people, without giving warning of it before it comes.
They perverted justice among themselves (v. 7): “You turn judgment to wormwood, that is, you make your administrations of justice bitter and nauseous, and highly displeasing both to God and man.’’ That fruit has become a weed, a weed in the garden; as nothing is more venerable, nothing more valuable, than justice duly administered, so nothing is more hurtful, nothing more abominable, than designedly doing wrong under color and pretense of doing right. Corruptio optimi est pessima —The best, when corrupted, becomes the worst.
It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated.
2 Corinthians 4:8-11 New King James Version (NKJV)
8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
“Pedophile” has reverberated throughout America. But beneath our anger and revulsion, a fundamental question pulsates: Are those who abuse their positions of trust to prey upon children—a category certainly not limited to those in religious orders—sick … or are they evil? We need the answer to that fundamental question. Because, without the truth, we cannot act. And until we act, nothing will change.
My job is protecting children. It has taken me from big cities to rural outposts, from ghettos to penthouses, and from courtrooms, into demonic battlefields. But whatever the venue, the truth remains constant: Some humans intentionally hurt children. They commit unspeakable acts—for their pleasure, their profit, or both.
