Bubonic Plague Threat

The Bubonic plague is breaking out in parts of Africa. That is the disease that is commonly believed to be the cause of the Black Death that swept through Europe in the 14th century killing an estimated 25 million people. Just one more sign that this earth is in trouble. Which means we are in trouble as well. But as believers we can take heart that God is on our side, He want so save us from disease and misfortune here and especially He wants us to join Him for eternity. This newsletter has a variety of articles that deal with problems on planet Earth other than the bubonic plague. The second article is a good one pointing to the vast size of the universe that, I believe, we will be able to explore in eternity and never have to worry about the black death or any threat of death ever again.

Note that I am simply sharing items of interest. That does not imply that I agree with everything presented.

"And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars ... nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes ..." (Matt 24:6-7)

Bubonic Plague Deadly for Madagascar
Alexandria Ingham on December 14, 2013

Bubonic plagueT

Bubonic plague is something many people in the west associate with the past. It was a disease that killed thousands of people in the Middle Ages, mainly in the 14th and 17th centuries. However, bubonic plague is still a problem in 2013, with 39 people currently dead from the disease in Madagascar.

This is not a new thing. Last year, there were 256 cases of the plague around the African island. From that, 60 people died. This is a higher rate than any other country, and is considered a big problem.

The last time the Western World saw this disease spread and become a major concern was in the 19th century. However, it has also been seen in the 14th and 17th centuries and was known as the Black Death due to the symptoms and number of people that died. Mass graves were dug because so many families fell victim and died. Red crosses were placed on doors of the homes with the plague, so the public were warned to stay away.

It is now known that the plague spread due to vermin, especially rats ...

Scientists confirm most distant galaxy ever
By Elizabeth Landau, CNN October 25, 2013

Most Distant Galaxy

(CNN) -- Scientists say they've found a galaxy that's not just far, far, away -- it's the most distant from our own that's been discovered yet. And it's helping them gain insight about the universe as it existed a long time ago.

Astronomers say the galaxy, called z8_GND_5296, is the most remote one they can confirm with spectroscopy, a technique that looks for the chemical signatures of elements.

In this case, that element was hydrogen, the main fuel of stars. Researchers reported their findings in the journal Nature.

z8_GND_5296 -- no, that's not a typo, or a spam username -- is a window into the past. Because of its distance, it shows what things would have been like 700 million years after the Big Bang.

The universe is 13.8 billion years old, so 700 million years after the start is actually quite early by comparison.

Star formation

Besides breaking the distance record, astronomers find the new galaxy exciting because it appears to produce stars at an unusually high rate, said lead study author Steven Finkelstein, assistant professor of astronomy at the University of Texas at Austin.

Record number of volcano eruptions in 2013 - Is catastrophic global cooling dead ahead?
Michael Snyder The Truth Fri, 06 Dec 2013

Record number of volcano eruptions in 2013

Have you noticed that this December is unusually cold so far? Could the fact that we have had a record number of volcanoes erupt in 2013 be responsible? Certainly an unusually calm solar cycle is playing a significant role in producing all of this cold weather, but as you will see below the truth is that throughout human history volcanic eruptions have produced some of the coldest winters ever recorded.

In fact, there have been some major eruptions that have actually substantially reduced global temperatures for two to three years. So should we be alarmed that the number of volcano eruptions this year was the highest ever recorded? Could it be possible that we are heading for a period of global cooling as a result?

And if the planet does cool significantly, could that lead to widespread crop failures and mass famine? Don't think that it can't happen. In fact, it has happened before and it is only a matter of time until it happens again.

I knew that we were seeing an unusual amount of volcanic activity around the planet so far this year. In fact, I wrote about it in my recent article entitled "Why Have 10 Major Volcanoes Along The Ring Of Fire Suddenly Roared To Life?" But I had no idea that we were on the verge of ...

Atheist 'Mega-Churches' Take Root Across US, World
By: Gillian Flaccus / Yahoo / November 13, 2013

Atheist Mega Churches

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It looked like a typical Sunday morning at any mega-church. Several hundred people, including families with small children, packed in for more than an hour of rousing music, an inspirational talk and some quiet reflection. The only thing missing was God.

"Nearly three dozen gatherings dubbed 'atheist mega-churches' by supporters and detractors have sprung up around the U.S. and Australia -- with more to come -- after finding success in Great Britain earlier this year. The movement fueled by social media and spearheaded by two prominent British comedians is no joke.

"On Sunday, the inaugural Sunday Assembly in Los Angeles attracted several hundred people bound by their belief in non-belief.

"The founders, British duo Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans, are currently on a tongue-in-cheek '40 Dates, 40 Nights' tour around the U.S. and Australia to drum up donations and help launch new Sunday Assemblies. They hope to raise more than $800,000 that will help atheists launch their pop-up congregations around the world."

Timing the Collapse: Ron Paul Says Watch the Petrodollar
By: Nick Giambruno / Doug Casey's International / November 20, 2013


"'The chaos that one day will ensue from our 35-year experiment with worldwide fiat money will require a return to money of real value. We will know that day is approaching when oil-producing countries demand gold, or its equivalent, for their oil rather than dollars or euros.' The sooner the better. (emphasis mine)

~ Ron Paul, 2006

"What Ron Paul is referring to here is the petrodollar system. It's one of the main pillars that's been holding up the US dollar's status as the world's premier reserve currency since the breakdown of Bretton Woods.

"Paul is essentially saying that, if we want to better understand the answer to the elusive question of 'When will the fiat US dollar collapse?', we have to watch the petrodollar system and the factors affecting it.

"But it's not just the financial implications that need to be considered. The destruction of the dollar is going to wipe out the wealth of a lot people, and that will cause political and social consequences that will likely be worse than the financial consequences.

"What to Watch For"

I would greatly encourage you to watch the following 14-minute video of some of the signs of the last days that happened around the world within the month of December 2013.
