World Health Organization unwittingly confirms Matthew 24 prophecy
According to the World Health Organization, natural disasters made 2010 the deadliest and most costly year in the past 40 years. Over 250,000 people died as a result of earthquakes, heat waves, floods, volcanoes, super typhoons, blizzards and landslides. The financial cost was in excess of $222 billion. Now scientists are trying to make the case that global warming and pollution are causing these disasters and the impact is twice as bad as terrorism, which has cost--according to the US State Department, only 115,000 lives in the past 40 years. See where this is headed--that it is more important to crack down on those contributing to large carbon footprints than it is to worry about Islamic terrorists.
One scientist at the University of Colorado told AP, "It's a form of suicide, isn't it?" Debarati Guha Sapir, director for the World Health Organization's Center for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters said, "It's almost as if the policies, the government policies and development policies, are helping the Earth strike back instead of protecting from it. We've created conditions where the slightest thing the Earth does is really going to have a disproportionate impact." Despite so-called global warming "science" being proven as nothing more than political activists fraudulently falsifying data to prove their case, educated people are still trying to say that big business and the workforce are worse than terrorists.
In 2005, I researched what appeared to be increasing disasters around the world. Here is what I found: From 1990 to 2003, earthquakes increased 88.8%; deaths from disasters increased from 53,000 in 1990 to 83,000 in 2003; in the 100 years from 1800-1899, there were 80 million deaths due to 105 wars and tyrannies; from 1900 to 1999 there were 180 million deaths attributed to 165 wars and tyrannies; over 100 million of those deaths were due to communism. War, disease, famine and natural disasters have resulted in the deaths of less than 500 million people over the past 200 years. Yet abortion has claimed the lives of some 700 million unborn children worldwide in the past 100 years.
Wars, famine from wars, tyranny, terrorism, and abortion have claimed far more lives than earthquakes and natural disasters, although it is true that natural disasters are increasing in frequency. And we should not be alarmed. Jesus said in Matthew 24:6-8, "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, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows." The prophecy concerning the beginning of sorrows is in play today. We are not going to stop it, but we can determine our place in it.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
