"PESTILENCE" in Bible Discussions

 
  • Angela on Revelation 12
    Gracious God. We love you. You are the center of our joy and the strength of our lives. We pray against the spirit of anti Christ,false witness,terrorism,idolatry, sexual immorality,sorcery,leviathan,jezebel,witchcraft,hatred,wars, pestilences, famine,divination and violence. We pray that the spirit of darkness be lifted from America and the scales would be lifted from peoples eyes that they may see the truth and be set free. We pray for a return of your people to the fear of the lord and that the ancient foundations of American be not removed and that you would bring men and women to a place of repentance and forgive our sins. We ask that you give President Trump,his family and administration the mind of Jesus Christ and fill them with your holy spirit. Protect them from the coronavirus and surround him with Godly council and that all elected officials and world leaders will have wise counsel and have a heart for God. We ask that you will forgive the sins of our land and heal our land. We pray that your will be done in the Presidential Election of the USA. Have mercy on us all. Grant us your peace and direction. We pray for revival in our hearts and churches. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and healing for all of those affected by the coronavirus. Lord in your loving kindness and tender mercies hear our prayers and let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We give you glory for moving by your spirit and answering our prayers. In Jesus name Amen.

    LOCUST swarms in Africa

    Locust are in the Bible. It's insect and also a pestilence. If you Google "locust swarms in Africa", You will see news reports of swarms of locusts decimating the little food that they are able to grow. They desperately need help in feeding many starving people. They've pleaded with the world community to fund and assist in spraying the few crops they still have. Look at the comparison of a locust to a grasshopper. They just look evil.

  • Signs Before the Rapture Caught Up - in Reply on Ephesians 2
    I've found good Bibles at Goodwill or Walmart. Try to get a King James Version or a NIV or NKJV.

    The world is experiencing many of the SIGNS mentioned in Matthew 24 and Luke 21. Fires, earthquakes, economy collapse, riots and wars; pandemics. You have a wise child.

    Time of the end

    Luke 21:11 There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

    Luke 21:20 When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies (I.e. Syria, Iran, Russia, China) you will know that its desolation is near.

    Luke 21:24-28 They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the TIMES Of The Gentiles ARE FULFILLED

    25 "There will be SIGNS in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.

    26 People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.

    27 At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your REDEMPTION is drawing near.

    32 "Truly I tell you, THIS GENERATION will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.

    33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but MY WORDS will never pass away.

    34 "Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap.

    35 For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth.

    36 Be always on the WATCH and PRAY that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man (Jesus). Be born again now. John 3, John 3:16

    Can you reword your question? Thanks

    Psalms 62:7-8 - In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

    Deuteronomy 4:7 - For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?

    Psalms 9:9 - The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.

    2 Samuel 22:17-20 - He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters;He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me.They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me.

    Psalms 91:1-9 - He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

    Proverbs 18:10 - The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

    Hebrews 6:18 - That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:
  • Stephende on Hebrews 3
    In Hebrews, Paul speaks to his own. These days, where our world is in danger of imploding on itself for pestilence and racial warfare, corruption of our government, in part facilitated by right wing Christians and their weeping for donation preachers. To whom shall we turn for truth, for our daily bread? I find that there is noone. Of course, all on this site say it's Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. That does me no good. Born again is any empty cliche! But I do read the bible religously and am comforted by God, El Shaddai, my creator who sits in Zion and is a God of Gods. His Son's are those who obey the Pact, which He spoke to Moses in the dessert. He is both Creator and Destroyer. He requires obedience un questioned and rewards accordingly.
  • Robert - in Reply on Revelation 13
    I believe in Covid 19 (which is largely fake), we are in the preparation phase for the tribulation judgments. Of course, this can't be the tribulation since the church is still on earth and not yet raptured, but they are preparing with this pestilence, economic collapse, famine, etc. It's most imperative that all repent and believe in Jesus Christ.
  • Revelation 916-18 on Plagues from AsiaChina on Mark 16:15
    These are the plagues that origins were in China or Asian countries. Look at the death totals. The scriptures describe 3 Pandemics or Pestilences. We need to be aware and be smart about avoiding infection until a vaccine can be developed. The Bible warned us prophetically thousands of years ago.

    FLU PANDEMIC (1968)

    Death Toll: 1 million

    Cause: Influenza

    A category 2 Flu pandemic sometimes referred to as "the Hong Kong Flu," the 1968 flu pandemic was caused by the H3N2 strain of the Influenza A virus, a genetic offshoot of the H2N2 subtype. From the first reported case on July 13, 1968 in Hong Kong, it took only 17 days before outbreaks of the virus were reported in Singapore and Vietnam, and within three months had spread to The Philippines, India, Australia, Europe, and the United States. While the 1968 pandemic had a comparatively low mortality rate (.5%) it still resulted in the deaths of more than a million people, including 500,000 residents of Hong Kong, approximately 15% of its population at the time.

    ASIAN FLU (1956-1958)

    Death Toll: 2 million

    Cause: Influenza

    ASIAN FLU was a pandemic outbreak of Influenza A of the H2N2 subtype, that originated in China in 1956 and lasted until 1958. In its two-year spree, Asian Flu traveled from the Chinese province of Guizhou to Singapore, Hong Kong, and the United States. Estimates for the death toll of the Asian Flu vary depending on the source, but the World Health Organization places the final tally at approximately 2 million deaths, 69,800 of those in the US alone.

    FLU PANDEMIC (1918)

    Death Toll: 20 -50 million

    Cause: Influenza

    Between 1918 and 1920 a disturbingly deadly outbreak of influenza tore across the globe, infecting INFECTING OVER 1/3 OF THE WORLDS POPULATION and ending the lives of 20 - 50 million people. Of the 500 million people infected in the 1918 pandemic, the mortality rate was estimated at 10% to 20%, with up to 25 million deaths in the first 25 weeks alone.

    For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences (like Co-vid) and earthquakes, in divers (sinful) places. I agree with your first statement about Covid. but not about your second insert (sinful). Divers places means different places, not sinful places.
  • Mishael on Mathew chapter 24 - in Reply on John 14
    Matthew chapter 24, verses 3-8

    And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the SIGN of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

    And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

    For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

    And ye shall hear of WARS and rumors of WARS: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

    For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences (like Co-vid) and earthquakes, in divers (sinful) places.

    All these are the beginning of sorrows.

    If your Bible has center columns on each page: you see little alphabet letter or numbers. Those refer you to other books or old prophesies). This way you will know what's coming our way. Knowledge is good.

    You'll need a good newspaper or be Google friendly. YouTube has news too.

  • SC - in Reply on Psalms 23:1
    Jesus Christ is The Light, The Perfect Order.

    Human relationships did not start first!

    Everything God creates has perfect order. The perfect order of the spiritual family is, God The Father and God The Mother(The Holy Spirit, The Wisdom, The Word made flesh(Jesus Christ), then The Children. Genesis 1:26,27

    Whoever is truly humble, yet offended by this perfect order of family, needs to REPENT, turn from their wicked (twisted) ways of thinking, and allow GOD, to heal the land in their minds first, then physical land around them.

    ""If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

    2 Chronicles 7:14

    Please Note:

    Covid-19 is a pestilence.

    " pestilence walks in "darkness", Psalms 91:6.

    This "darkness" is, "spiritual darkness, spiritual disorder'. It is the rejection of "The Spiritual Light" of Genesis 1:26,27, that God are our Spiritual Parents, God The Father and God The Mother, The Holy Spirit.

    Everyone who rejects this perfect order of God The Father and God The Mother who produce Spiritual Children, are spiritually asleep, walking in the spiritual darkness of their carnal minds{the mind is the heart of the spirit}. The spiritual darkness, spirtual disorder in their minds reflects out into the physical-realm as all kinds of evil, including the Covid-19 pestilence.

    If you really want God's protection, then honor Them spiritually in your minds first, as Father and Mother, Your Spiritual Parents.

    "Jerusalem(Jesus Christ) who is above is free. She is The Mother of us all."

    Galations 4:26
  • Mishael on Psalm 756 - in Reply on Psalms 75:6
    Psalms 75:6

    Verse 6-10. The rise and fall of nations and empires are in this Psalm ascribed to God. He exalts one and puts down another at his pleasure.

    In this he generally uses instrumentality, but that instrumentality is always rendered effectual by his own agency. When nations or individuals are prosperous, and glorious, and powerful, they usually ascribe all to themselves or to fortune. But it is God who has raised them to eminence.

    When they boast He can humble them. In these verses God is considered as the governor of the world, punishing the wicked, and pouring out judgment on his enemies. The calamities of war, pestilence, and famine, are all ministers of providence to execute wrath. Commentary by Alexander Carson.

    This website has a commentary that you can read what the scripture is thought, to explain a verse. Type the scripture in the search box. After it comes up, scroll down until you see the commentary box. Click on that.

    It also has a box so you can go straight to Google if nothing came up on your KJVO search. Have a pad & pencil ready.

    That center column in some Bibles is used to give explanation of scriptures pertaining to the one you are questioning. The letters and numbers correspond to the verse you are reading. I find that really helpful.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 11
    When I was yet a baby Christian I got into street evangelizing after I attended a storefront church. The first time I went alone I told a group of people coming out of a bar they were blindly going to hell intoxicated. They just laughed and we know we are. I was devastated. I went home and was trying to figure out what went wrong. I hear this voice in my spirit: "are you done doing it you way? I said "Yes Sir!!"

    He showed me to study to show myself approved. To intercede for people I would meet. To pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send people in my direction. Then to pray for the people to take those first steps. I gave many people rides to church. Then over to my place for spaghetti. Well, I had times when I knew I was walking with angels nearby. I never saw them. I had the greatest feelings of joy unspeakable.

    You feel in your spirit when's the right moment to speak to someone. Most people will not refuse you saying a prayer for their needs.

    I'm older now. I have visions. Two years ago; I saw hideous storms, earthquakes in other countries, fires; the stock market; riots and pestilence. I had asked the Lord how prideful America would bow it's knee to the Antichrist. The vision was His answer.

    Six months ago He said "Fire." I studied everything in the Bible. He said, "it is not global warming." The earth temperature is rising for end time events. There are scriptures on that.

    It's about time for someone to stand up and speak peace; one world economy; one world religion.

    Like this election: they're going to have us out in the street, in a line waiting for toilet paper and rationed food like the Russians. I think this is all a dress rehearsal for the rapture. I hope it's PRE and not POST.

    What do you think
  • SC - in Reply on Psalms 91
    Yes! The enemies of The LORD reap what they sow.

    Look at Psalms 91:6 again!

    It says that, "pestilence walks in darkness"!

    That darkness is, "spiritual darkness".

    The Covid-19 pestilence, came forth into this physical realm because there was too much "spiritual darkness" in the world, and too much "spiritual darkness" in too many of the churches around the world.

    The main foundation of that "spiritual darkness", is the rejection of the Spiritual Light of Genesis 1:26,27, that tells very clearly that, The Image And Likeness Of God is, Spiritually Male(The Father), and Spiritually Female(The Mother), and Then They produce Spiritual Children, Sons and Daughters who have spiritual and physical life eternally. The Holy Spirit is, God The Mother who gives birth to Spiritual Children, for Her and God The Father.

    YET, too many churches are teaching and preaching the opposite. The are preaching and teaching that God is, God The Father(male), God The Son(male), and God The Holy Spirit (male), and these three spiritual males produce and give birth to children. This is "spiritual darkness " and the spiritual disorder that causes disorder in the minds of men, which brings forth all kinds of wickedness, evil and destruction into the world.

    The time is NOW for all you people who are called by God's to REPENT of this evil, and accept The Light of who God is.

    God is, Father and Mother of The Family. This is the Perfect Spiritual Order, that renews the mind and bring order to the world.
  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Chronicles 8:1
    Priscilla, God was speaking to King Solomon, appearing to him at night. As you have probably read in that Book, Solomon built a Temple to God & it was a huge affair, not only with the building, but also the celebrations which followed. God accepted this work & their joy in building it, but God also gave this caveat: "when I send Israel drought, locusts or pestilence upon you, remember that it's because your sin has come before Me. But if you should humble yourselves, & pray, & seek My face, and turn from your wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, & will forgive your sin, and will heal your land". However, records show us that Israel very often fell into sin & idolatry & God did have to deal with them harshly.
  • Sandra Sibley on Matthew 24:7
    2020 pestilences - the world is calling the coronavirus. We are living in the end of days. I pray we all will be ready for JESUS return. Accept the LORD JESUS CHRIST into your heart while there is still time.
  • Obbie Beal on Matthew 9
    23 And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise, 24 He said unto them, Give place for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn. 25 But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose. 26 And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land. .... ( Jesus uses this circumstance to prove to them /us HE has power over death, never-the-less in 2020 the world was shook over death by the pestilence. The 2020 death by the pestilence is the same death above and Jesus still has HIS power over death /it, plus Eternal-Life, according to John 3:16-21.

    Matthew 24 is a good start as is Mark 13 they record what Christ said of the end times.

    Matthew 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences (diseases), and earthquakes, in divers places.

    Deuteronomy Chapter 11 is another
  • Mickey - in Reply on Genesis 4
    To Jill: I'm pretty sure I didn't say 'pandemic'. I would've said that it qualifies as a pestilence because it is covering the earth. Only God can show us what it is. At present there seems to be suspicion that it was an accident in a lab. I will go back and see what is that I wrote.

    What it is showing us is that as a nation we are unprepared to react swiftly to disasters. Also that in crisis we turn to God for our help. Psalms 91.

    The word pandemic is not in the Bible. I think many people have been blissfully living their lives without God for a long time. The Bible and prayer were kicked out of school in the mid 60's.
  • Chris on Revelation 1
    Psalms 91 speaks of a destructive or pernicious disease that has far outreaching effects. There is no specific meaning of 'pestilence' in the original Greek, so it could also allow for disease destroying plant & animal life. Though here, it seems to apply to humans. The Bubonic Plague that affected Europe in the Middle Ages is a classic example of Pestilence that, I believe, killed over 30% of its population. The present Corona virus, could also be classified as such, because of its severity, range & resulting deaths. But whether this is a direct act of God against man, or even a prelude to further ravages to come upon us, remains debatable & no doubt, the main topic for some time yet.

  • Alfred Gurney - in Reply on Jeremiah 33
    Matthew 24:7 speaks of pestilence in divers ( of different kinds) places. Luke 21:11 also speaks about the same. However, according to Luke 21:12 says that before the pestilence comes the Disciples of Christ will be persecuted. Matthew 24:9 also says this but after 24:7 (). I don't see this as a sign of end times Could be wrong.
  • Mickey on Antichrist on Zechariah 9:13
    To Guillermo: I'm gonna redirect on that. I believe that world economies are going to tank on corona virus as we have already seen. The only problem is that the scripture says pestilence in plural: pestilences. We need to be drawing real close to Jesus now. "My sheep hear MY voice". Be careful what you listen to.
    SPIRIT of Antichrist has been here for years. I believe the Antichrist is here. He's in the background. The economies may act like a roller coaster? Get in Daniel and study it. Watch some YouTube sermons. Eventually Antichrist will stand up, solve the broken world economies, create one world money and one world religion. Keep hold of your faith in Jesus to save. Rejoice!
  • Andy on Revelation 6
    The locusts eat the crops which cause famines. The covid-19 virus is one of the pestilence that kills people all around the world because people in China eat the beasts of the fields (rats and bats). We are in the last days and on the threshold of Christs return. These are exciting times for the saved and scary for the lost. 🙏🏻 Amen
  • Mickey - in Reply on Acts 12:4
    I read half of Lamentations night before last. God has bent over backwards to bless them. The apple of his eye. Known the world over as his peculiar people. The envy of the nations. It hurts me that they hurt Him. Resist Him. It gladdens me that many returning Jews that have been saved are evangelizing. Hard to do when you are sheltering from a viral pestilence. May be this disease is from the I WILL that is loose in the world? You can't read Lamentations and not miss the severity of emotion. The last grains of sand in an hour glass fall real fast. Makes me wonder? Let us all pray for a revival. Now when we are confined. I hope you will. Some of Stan Telchin's testimony is on YouTube.
  • Gary DeVeau on Habakkuk 3:5
    Seeing Wesley's comment, regarding this verse, I am encouraged that our God makes room for His people by forcing the pestilence ahead of Him. Even if the many English translations I can read are not 100% clear to me, I would still want to pray to & follow the only God that plagues and pestilence listen to and obey. ? Only a foolish person would want this God as their enemy. Remember,?One Way, Jesus!?

    At a time like this. Do we still have atheists iNOW
    in our midst in this despensation of the dreaded coronavirus disease ravaging the world? Or has it not yet dawn on us that this is sign of the end time? Brethren see 2Chro7:13-14 "When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land or send pestilence among my people. If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land" The question now is; are we ready to humble ourselves and pray for repentance and turn away from our evil ways?

  • J.Jones. - in Reply on Amos 8:11
    The scripture Amos 8: 11 is surely prophetic, for in these times with the almost complete shutdown of houses of worship , fellowship among believers is essentially virtual and not in person. Hearing God's word has always been -by way of the ' spoken word'. Now for the near or foreseeable future , God's word may or will be by reading -for those who possess a Bible , or online ,or previous recorded sermons... but for most , it will be virtual , for the live spoken word cannot be duplicated. Who thought that it happen this way . The houses of worship have been shut by this pestilence - which in a strange way ....fulfills the Prophecy of Amos.
