“The LORD will make the pestilence cling to you until He has consumed you from the land where you are entering to possess it, Australia, China “The LORD will smite you with consumption and with fever and with inflammation and with fiery heat and with the sword and with blight and with mildew, and they will pursue you until you perish.
Plagues are also a sign, along with hostility to Christians, that we are and have been in the End Times, as Jesus Himself says:
10 Then he said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11 There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. 12 But before all this they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors for my name’s sake. 13 This will be your opportunity to bear witness. (Matthew 24)
And the Book of Revelation describes the judgments of the apocalypse in terms of pestilence and plagues:
7 When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8 And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth. (Rev. 6:7-8)
15 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and amazing, seven angels with seven plagues, which are the last, for with them the wrath of God is finished. (Rev 15:15)
But, along with this terrifying judgment of the Law, we also see the Gospel expressed in an Intercessor who stands between us and the plagues.
A member of Congress who received a COVID-19 vaccine has tested positive for the disease.
Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) tested positive for COVID-19 after receiving two doses of Pfizer’s vaccine.
“Congressman Lynch had received the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine and subsequently received a negative COVID-19 test prior to attending President [Joe] Biden’s inauguration,” a spokeswoman told news outlets.
The inauguration was nine days before Lynch tested positive.
Pfizer has said its vaccine is 95 percent effective in preventing COVID-19 in those without prior infection 7 days or more after the second dose. In an email, the company told The Epoch Times it does not know the specific details of Lynch’s case.
“Data from the Phase 3 study demonstrated that, although partial protection from the vaccine appears to begin as early as 12 days after the first dose, two doses of the vaccine (21 days apart) are required to provide the maximum protection against the disease, a vaccine efficacy of 95%. There are no data to demonstrate that protection after the first dose is sustained after 21 days. Protection after the second dose kicks in after seven days,” a spokesperson said.
Drug regulators said last month in issuing emergency use authorization that data is not available to show how long the vaccine would provide protection, “nor is there evidence that the vaccine prevents transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from person to person.”
SARS-CoV-2, or the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, causes the disease COVID-19.
Lynch’s spokesperson said he is not showing symptoms and “feels fine” but will quarantine as a precaution.
Most people who contract COVID-19 recover with few or no symptoms but the illness can lead to death, primarily among the elderly and those with compromised immune systems.
Dozens of members of Congress have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past year. None have died. Rep-elect Luke Letlow (R-La.) passed away due to complications linked to the disease.
Rep. Lori Trahan (D-Mass.) tested positive on Thursday. She is also isolating. Both she and Lynch plan to vote by proxy. Source theepochtimes
Israel Is Leading the World in Its Vaccinations, but the Program Is Not Working, Pestilent Has No Cure
For the past week, Israel has been vaccinating about 1.5% of its population daily — roughly 150,000 people per day — making it a world leader in vaccinating against COVID-19.
New cases have surged to a three-month high, but health authorities have still managed to vaccinate about 50% of the country’s high-risk population.
Israeli Health Minister Yuli Edelstein said in a press conference on Sunday that the entire Israeli population could be vaccinated as soon as April.
“Within a time period of two to three months, we’ll be able to vaccinate the entire population that can be vaccinated,” Edelstein said.
He added that inoculating the general public is expected to begin by next month.
PESTILENCE TO WHICH THERE ARE NO CURE — MORE HIGHLY TRANSMISSIBLE VARIANT OF CCP VIRUS DETECTED IN 10 STATES CDC
At least 10 state health departments in the United States have detected the highly contagious B.1.1.7 variant of COVD-19, the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, according to a new report.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in an update on Jan. 15, said that a “more highly transmissible variant of SARS-CoV-2, B.1.1.7, has been detected in 10 U.S. states.” SARS-CoV-2 is another name for the coronavirus that is believed to have emerged in Wuhan, China, in late 2019.
Health officials warned that models have shown the B.1.1.7 strain of the virus has the potential to increase “the U.S. pandemic trajectory in the coming months” and “warrants universal and increased compliance with mitigation strategies, including distancing and masking.”
Increased vaccinations may need to be achieved to fight the virus, the CDC said.
This variant was first reported in the UK in mid-December, although the CDC noted that it may have emerged in September 2020. Meanwhile, B.1.1.7 has been detected in more than 30 countries, the agency said, while adding that it is easier to transmit than other CCP virus strains.
In the United States, the strain was first reported by state authorities in a rural area in Colorado, hours away from Denver. Other than Colorado, the B.1.1.7 variant was discovered in Pennsylvania, New York, Illinois, California, and more, according to reports published in recent weeks.
“The modeled trajectory of this variant in the U.S. exhibits rapid growth in early 2021, becoming the predominant variant in March. Increased SARS-CoV-2 transmission might threaten strained health care resources, require extended and more rigorous implementation of public health strategies, and increase the percentage of population immunity required for pandemic control,” said the CDC.
UK authorities said last year that the new variant of the virus was the reason for the increase in infection rates in London and southeastern England. But they said there’s no evidence that the variant makes people sicker.
The CDC, in its update, did not appear to recommend any new mitigation strategies.
“Further, strategic testing of persons without symptoms of COVID-19, but who are at increased risk for infection with SARS-CoV-2, provides another opportunity to limit ongoing spread,” according to the CDC. “Collectively, enhanced genomic surveillance combined with increased compliance with public health mitigation strategies, including vaccination, physical distancing, use of masks, hand hygiene, and isolation and quarantine, will be essential to limiting the spread of SARS-CoV-2 and protecting public health.”
Previously, the CDC noted that so far, there have been a number of mutations to the virus.
“Among these possibilities, the last—the ability to evade vaccine-induced immunity—would likely be the most concerning because once a large proportion of the population is vaccinated, there will be immune pressure that could favor and accelerate emergence of such variants by selecting for ‘escape mutants,’” the CDC said. “There is no evidence that this is occurring, and most experts believe escape mutants are unlikely to emerge because of the nature of the virus.”
1 This prayer was sung by the prophet Habakkuk:
2 I have heard all about you, Lord. I am filled with awe by your amazing works. In this time of our deep need, help us again as you did in years gone by. And in your anger, remember your mercy.
3 I see God moving across the deserts from Edom, the Holy One coming from Mount Paran. His brilliant splendor fills the heavens, and the earth is filled with his praise. 4 His coming is as brilliant as the sunrise. Rays of light flash from his hands, where his awesome power is hidden.
5 Pestilence marches before him; plague follows close behind.
6 When he stops, the earth shakes. When he looks, the nations tremble. He shatters the everlasting mountains and levels the eternal hills. He is the Eternal One! ~Habakkuk 3:1-6 (NLT) Habakkuk wrote this text during the time when Israel was backslidden and had fallen away from the Lord. The nation was in great need of revival and the people needed to be humbled so they could return to the Lord. Habakkuk reminded the Lord that in the midst of his anger, to remember His mercy.
Then Habakkuk said that He saw the Lord coming as brilliant as the sunrise; “Pestilence marches before Him; plagues follows close behind.”
