|Water in Vancouver, Canada, turns blood red:|
Although I am not a biblical scholar, as anyone who reads my blog with any regularity will know that I am a student of current events. The past several years have placed me on a quest to find out the truth about precisely what is creating the massive changes taking place all across our planet, changes that affect us all.
More recent news items have troubled me, mainly because of an uncomfortable familiarity with records of events from the ancient history of our planet. Events began popping up that I recognized from a source familiar to most of us, because many of my peers grew up with these stories being told to us. It should be logical then that large segments of the population would recognize the stories immediately as well, but in today's self-absorbed, social media driven, selfie-taking, shallow emptiness, that is not the case. The events happening today also happened thousands of years ago, and the survivors who witnessed them were so traumatized by what they endured, they wrote it all down for future generations to read. They explained the events in the language of the time, without the benefit of the scientific knowledge we possess today. Consequently, their words of wisdom became myths and legends, outlandish stories that could not have possibly taken place. Or could they?
Are the Plagues of Egypt happening today?
Are the Plagues of Egypt happening today?
I'll reiterate I am not a biblical scholar or even an overtly-religious person, I have simply made the connection with recent stories "In the News" that seem to me at least to be directly from the story of the 10 Plagues of Egypt in the Book of Exodus.
Case in Point: Illinois Town Sees Creepy Snake Invasion!
Although not technically one of the plagues of Egypt, in a show of strength and power to the Pharaohs, Moses turns his staff into a serpent, which in turn eats the serpents the Pharaoh's magicians also made from their staffs.
Case #2: Water into Blood: Exodus: 7:19 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood.
Case #3: Frogs:
Exodus 8:2: And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs:
Thunder and Hail9:18 Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now.
Case #5: There have been many stories of awe-inspiring hail storms, especially over the past year. This recent video out of Siberia, however, takes the cake: A group of beach-goers enjoying a day in the sun must suddenly run for their lives when an apocalyptic hail storm turns a beautiful day into a living nightmare (two young children were killed by this hail storm, it should be noted):
Thunder? Well, the "freak" lightning storm on a California beach last week that killed one and left dozens injured, could certainly count here:
Case #6: Locusts: 10:4 Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts into thy coast, and they shall cover the face of the earth.
There have been several notable examples of this recently, including a locust invasion in Madagascar that threatens to create a famine on the island as well as a grasshopper invasion in New Mexico so large, the swarm showed up on weather radar!
Case #7: Recent news items regarding worrying livestock diseases (the 5th plague) and plagues involving boils and the death of the firstborn son could be attributed to the mutations of diseases of the time (Ebola scare, as well as flesh-eating bacteria killing people in Florida.)
And finally, Case #8: Darkness:
And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days.
What recent events could give an insight to what caused "3 days of darkness"? Do you remember this "once in a thousand year event" from February of last year? Perhaps you conveniently forgot about it.
The meteor that exploded over Siberia in February 2013 with the force of several hundred atomic bombs also created a debris field high in the atmosphere that traveled the world in the matter of a few days. If the meteor had actually hit the earth instead of detonating high in the atmosphere, it would have created a huge crater, with trillions of tons of ejecta entering the atmosphere. The dirt, dust and debris from the impact crater would fill the skies, blotting out the sun for days, weeks, perhaps even months.
What else could cause a similar event? Certainly, the eruption of a large volcano could eject enough ash into the skies to create this scenario. Remember that unpronounceable Icelandic volcano that erupted, Eyjafjallajökull?
Its eruption halted air traffic over Europe for a week due to the massive ash cloud generated, which caused hundreds of billions of dollars in loses to the global economy. Then there's the worrying uptick of seismic activity at Yellowstone Park, the world's largest super-volcano caldera. Intel sneaking out of the region says that scientists monitoring the caldera are concerned, and these buffalo in the park seem to know something's up:
Again, it seems that animals are well aware of coming events over their human counterparts. All of this, coupled with weather systems gone out of control, massive craters popping up in Siberia
and large lakes appearing in the middle of the desert in Tunisia
and... you get the idea.
