  • 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.
